Some moments perfectly crystallize the spirit of the age.
For example, did you see that Dr. Drew CNN roundtable about Jenner where the psycho beefy Jewish kid neck-grabbed the tranny guest, and threatened that the tranny would leave the show in an ambulance? And later, when, the Jewish kid agreed with a commenter on Twitter that the tranny should be curb-stomped?
Nope, nobody did.
And (warning, shocking, offensive) a curb stomp is what, exactly?
The assault & threat came after several other panel members said that while Bruce Jenner wasn’t a hero, he was bravely speaking out for the countless (?) young people who were suffering and being bullied and dying because of their longing for women’s clothing and surgical mutilation.
Bravest thing evaaaaar?
“Did she deserve the honor, probably not. Is she brave? Of course,” Tur explained. “Being brave is being yourself. And being transgender is about the bravest thing you can do.”
Gotcha. Bravest. My great-uncle Gren might disagree and his family and friends, but he was probably a cisgendered white racist scum, so shut up, Gren.
Then Tur, Son Of Og (his parents called him Robert Tur) got Offended™ (girl-screams!) by the way Ben Shapiro wasn’t joining the group-quack and was “bravely being himself”, sticking to his guns that Bruce Jenner was still a man, and probably mentally ill, when– son of irony itself!– bullying Tur actually grabbed the young commentator by the yoke of the neck with his beefy hand, and threatened to send him home in an ambulance.
Ambulance? That is: so to physically injure Shapiro via violence that the young married father of a new baby would not be able to leave the set or the CNN building under his own locomotion, but would require a gurney and EMTs and an ambulance, thence to be transported not to his hotel or home, or the airport, but to a local hospital for extensive care and recovery. All via Og, Son Of Tur, getting his inner neanderthal thug bully act on, because Offended™.
Apparently Tur, Son Of Og did not have an “Ohcrapocrapocrap what did I just do?” moment at any point while the CNN cameras watched. Dr. Drew was AWOL, or gobsmacked, or quietly delighted at some exciting ratings-boosting TV gold, but did not act like a man or an actual host/ moderator and demand civility, and call out Tur, Son of Og for acting like a freaking psycho, and technically assaulting a fellow guest on the show.
Regrets? Apologies? It is to hysterically laugh– later, on Twitter, Bob Tur agreed with a commenter on Twitter that Ben Shapiro should be curb-stomped (i.e., crippled, possibly unto death). I devoutly hope that Mr. Tur is properly charged & arrested for assault, threat-making, and civilly sued up the wazoo (if he still has once, post-surgically).
Awkward silence ensured as the politically correct in the group tried to decide what they were supposed to say, and how to circle the wagons around Tur, Son of Og, from his legal & social & commentarial buffoonery.
The grab-n-threat was shocking enough, but I was actually offended and angry when the group-quacking restarted, once people got over their shock, re-assigned blame, and started snarking at the assaulted young man. You can hear the group-think: ‘OK, Ben’s a Jew which used to be special status, but that’s not as special a Special Status as Caitlin and Zoey, and we can’t appear to agree with Ben against Zoey, so the Jew gets it. Because Offended™… whew!’
Quacked they variously unto the camera: “Well, Ben should have known that he was being very provocative, terribly Offensive™ to Tur, Son Of Og” etc. etc., had-it-coming blah blah blah, because self-definition and tranny and Jenner and all that is the new holy idol for worship and effusive praisings. And bravest thing ever.
So Where Are We, Exactly?
So: the new new rules, as demonstrated by Tur, Son Of Og, and his fellow guests?
(1) Bullying is only bad when (if?) conservatives do it.. (in this case, it’s just fine during the course of a civil and public and televised conversation about gender).
(2) You can violate all the rules of civil discourse and decent society, then threaten to grievously injure your fellow panelists to the point of hospitalization, and later agree that they should be mutilated and possibly killed by extreme cruelty and violence, if they dare point out that the current truth about trans-everything-ism is not actual “Real” reality.
(3) Being Offended™ covereth a multitude of sins, including lying, group-think, moral cowardice, self-deception, brutality, death-threats, and– well, anything done against the Enemy of The Moment.
(4) We are all living in Upsidedownland. Please adjust your brain constantly. Or else. Welcome to now.
And now you know.
