“Babysitter buying power" is driving politics, culture, business over the cliff

Gavin McInnesArchive

Long ago, comedian Bill Hicks asked, "When did we start listening to prepubescent white girls?" If only he could see us today.

Feminist bloggers with blue hair are invited to the United Nations to discuss mean comments on the Internet and video games.

The babysitter dollar is one of the most coveted dollars in today’s economy, and with money comes power.

Today young girls who do little else but stare at their phones, take selfies, and say "like" every second word have the power to get people fired, cancel ad campaigns, and close down $400 million corporations with 10,0000 employees.

At least when the lunatics were running the asylum we weren’t being bossed around by stupid chicks.

Here is a “heads up” to any and all who are involved in analysing the dynamics of the “swing vote”……read my last post…..and become enlightened…..for the sake of all living things…..

Andrew…..I was a pretty boy….even now in my old age…there are people who assume I am gay on sight. My now deceased spouse had a twin….my brother-in-law….who’s partner was one of the first casualties in the initial wave of AIDS.

My spouse worked at AIDS support in two provinces and as on site get-it-done co-ordinator at one of the largest and perennially celebrated and enjoyed multicultural festivals in Canada….the one on the waterfront in Dartmouth.

I was a volunteer…..at all of these events….got the trinkets and the pins and the thank you certificates.

My wife got into a conflict with her director…..over something I would rather not rehash……got settled out of court.

“Inclusion” ….if it does not …….“include”….straight white males…..is not “inclusion”

If your response was a "shame on me for not being “inclusive”……..you are going to have to do a lot better than that to swing my vote.

And probably the vote of anyone else on this forum,

Andrew – SJW’s are very angry women that have no clue where their ire is leading. I have read countless tweets that boil down to “I hate men.”
Shouldn’t you stop and ask yourself WHY you hate men? The whole “Patriarchy” thing wears really thin when you consider that more women are enrolled in college than men, more women are getting PhD’s than men. Women are given preference in the work force over men.
The incontrovertible fact is that women bear the children. Rather than get upset about this, how about you find a way to live a rewarding life that includes offspring, that you bear, in conjunction with men. Would you even consider that it might be a rewarding life or, is your individual fulfillment the only objective of your tour on this planet?
Do I think that SJW’s are “right wing bogeymen”??? Absolutely no. What I do think is that their anger is misdirected and that it is causing harm to society.

Glenn Craig … it’s up to pols if they want to listen to certain constituents or not. Some are more inclusive than others.

SJW” is merely the latest in a long line of right wing bogeymen.

Hey Gavin, a few videos ago you were trying to shame young men into putting down the video game consoles and getting married. Now you are telling us young women are retards? Will you now go back and apologize to the young men, they are actually correct in stepping away from relationships with these babysitters.

Jimmy….really…homophobic this homophobic that homophobic this homophobic that…..

If you trained a parrot to say..“SQUAK…whistle…..IT”S OK TO BE GAY……SQUAK……whistle…IT"S OK TO BE GAY"

And it repeated that as often as the CBC….or….you for that matter……

Even if that bird was in a gay bar….the patrons might find it amusing at first….but.there would come a point when somebody would throttle that fuckin bird……….:-)

Appreciate that, Jimmy.

Great post with the exception of the Duck Dynasty portion – they are homophobic and bigoted. Nothing taken out of context there with full speeches from Phil Robertson.

Nonetheless – I just wanted to say that I dug reading that.

Andrew Stephenson….they have a right to their opinion…but they do not have a right to political power until they are elected….and when elected…they should refrain from pissing people off in order to stay elected.

These little cunts have more power than any elected official….they can end a political career over a social media"gottcha".

They are much like those pricks in Mao’s China during the “Cultural Revolution”……it was a phenomina that even surpirised and startled Mao…..

Andrew Stephenson…they have a right to their opinion……and we have a right to ours…..and in our opinion SJWs do not deserve to be n ats seriously as the MSM seems to take them……mostly because the MSM itself doe not deserve to be taken as seriously as they take themselves.

Nobody should be in jeopardy of collosal lawsuits and loss of livelihood over their obfuscations……but unfortunately law schools….like the ones Tom Mulcair headed….admit and graduate lots of them.

My opinion (for whatever it’s worth which, admittedly, ain’t much):

This is a combination of an older public relations mantra, coupled with the web’s (and mobile communication’s) ability to comment publicly, and anonymously, and then be hijacked by anyone who’s feeling inferior and self-righteous.

There was a time when those in PR, particularly sales, but including retail and food services, where employees were taught to fix a client’s problem to the client’s satisfaction — a method of bringing the client/customer back for repeat business. This mantra was/is, “The Customer Is Always Right”, even when the customer is wrong. Initially, it DID do wonders for repeat business in the retail and food services industries. And then, like any principle taken by those with little conscience, it was abused. People started complaining in order to get something free, or upgraded free, or just to be able to take advantage.

Enter the anonymous wireless communications and the web. Now such complaints can be aired by any Harry Hardluck or Sally Sobstory (sorry, Disney and Pixar) who feels their “rights” (whatever those appear to be) have been infringed.

It’s beginning to seem that the consequences outweigh the benefits for business… and I would tend to agree. Even when the “customer” is wrong, the public appearance has to be assuaged, to retain sales and profits. But it would seem to be at the expense of decent investigation. How many false claims have been made in the last year? Does anybody remember the big furor over the family founder of the Duck Commander call? An article was written last year, selectively taken out of context, and the family and founder was soundly condemned in the media — to the point of their A&E program being cancelled. But why was it re-instated? (For one, I emailed both NAACP and A&E and lambasted both organizations for their lack of investigation — particularly as I found the entire written article, and read the whole thing… which, obviously, they hadn’t.) But what else was A&E supposed to do, the media would ask? Well, how about making a public statement that whatever “claims” or “complaints” were being thoroughly investigated, and the appropriate action would be taken at the appropriate time.?
But they didn’t do that. They just reacted. Everybody just “reacted”.

And therein lies the problem.

Everybody (so it seems/feels) is claiming or otherwise demanding their “rights”, and completely neglecting the corresponding “responsibilities”. And we see the results. Daily.

Now I finally understand the idiotic selection criteria being used for the “Recommended Channel” stuff on YouTube.

Einstein was right. A generation of idiots is upon us. How else could Potboy be a contender for Prime Minister?

Western society has abandoned the Judeo-Christian foundation that made it great, and has allowed a generation of idiots (leftist lunatics) to take control of its primary institutions (the mass media, judiciary and education system), just as previous civilizations passed their peak and spawned generations of spoiled clueless morons who led them to their destruction. This is what is happening in Canada and other western countries. The wolves then take over.

I didn’t even listen to babysitters when they were babysitting me.

In a democratic society, they have as much right to their opinion as anybody else.

And they wonder why pregnancy rates are dropping amongst the “educated” 20-40 y.o. “progressive” female demographic. It’s not purely because of more effective birth control (or sexual responsibility). Men are keeping their distance.

That’s pretty much a direct quote of what Einstein said. “I fear the day technology surpasses humanity, we’ll be left with a world of idiots”

Socialism has become religion of the 1700s/1800s with no personal guidance/advice. These self appointed socialist assholes are language cops – Orwell would be proud.

The bottom line is that these socialist assholes apply suicidal tactics on others while living well padded lifestyles.
