You Want More Trump? NOT OFF MY WRITING PLAYLIST

 

Yes, this is actually made to be taken seriously…

Look, I don’t care how one identifies themselves, but if you’re someone who advocates identity politics,  do you really think this is going to help?

When to listen: Never… this is cringe-worthy. Unless of course you’re looking to waste a few brain cells.

Plus, under no circumstances should bill nye (lower case to denote a lack of respect) be taken seriously.  This is a guy who said he’d be okay with people getting criminal charges for disagreeing with him on climate change. Again, I don’t take sides on the issue,  but criminal charges for a difference of opinion? That’s how you get more Trump…

You Want More Trump? Mass Effect

Ever wonder what happened to the Mass Effect games? The first one was awesome, the second one was great… The third… and now Andromeda..

Despite the decent reviews that Andromeda has been getting… they largely seem to agree

“In its current iteration, Mass Effect: Andromeda is an incredibly addictive, compelling action RPG. It is also deeply flawed in a way that goes beyond the sometimes wonky character animations and technical glitches that worm their way into expansive, open-world AAA titles nowadays. Much hay has been made about Andromeda‘s character animations and odd lighting, and rightly so. While there is a lot to love about Andromeda, these seemingly small details wind up breaking the immersion and distracting from the game’s storytelling potential.

From wooden character models to dead android eyes, the animations in Andromeda feel as though they were an afterthought. Some characters look like they have space rickets when the walk, others seem as though they’re experiencing constant tremors, and some suddenly appear in front of me thanks to shoddy draw distance issues on the PS4 version. In one horrifying case, the game glitched and created two Nakmor Dracks standing on top of one another in the kitchen of my spaceship.”

Among other complaints are that the character creation bit is terrible, and many place the blame for this and other Bioware game flaws on the game designers who seem to spend a disproportionate amount of time being racists…

C7ELHgiWcAI-std.jpg

… I’ve taken a bit of flak for this, but after seeing this… crap on twitter, I sent a letter to BioWare, explaining that if this was the type of person that they employed, and the things they say here are perfectly okay with them, they’d lose a lot of customers. They already lost me. I still have my Dragon Age games, but I have no intention of purchasing Andromeda or any other BioWare game until they come out against this bigotry.

Identity politics doesn’t sell, nor does a bias against another race.

Oh come on Jim, I’ll bet her doesn’t really believe that. He probably just said it to attract attention to his game. 

That actually might be even more despicable. You drive the racial divide deeper just to sell your product?

So you’re against freedom of speech?

We’ve been over this. He has every right to say it and I’m glad he did, because I now know where the money I spend on my games goes and can make much more conscientious about where my money goes.

You are aware that most of the gaming/geek community are left leaning right?

Yes, though that may change as they’re continuously alienated by creators looking to pander to a group of people that literally have zero interest in their products. I have no issue with leftist ideologies, its regressive leftist ideologies that I take issue with and those people are not majorly part of the Geek community.

Stupid, racist, divisive comments like this, people. That’s how you get more Trump.

Political Exhaustion

You know… a while back my wife and I made a deal to get off of facebook. It was becoming an issue for both of us and we were spending too much time on there. At the time I lemented the idea because… well she was absolutely right. Most of the plans I made with friends were on there, I was spending too much time arguing over points, things… were getting bad.

So we stopped. Now here I am a year later, my wife goes back onto facebook to see if her family has posted any new news lately and I do the same… and I’ve looked over the last few days…

Here’s what my wall looks like:

  1. Article posted by a friend from History.com comparing today’s crisis to the Irish one from the 1900s
  2. Boston Globe Article blaming Baby Boomers for the state of the US
  3. Another Post by a friend talking about James Comey
  4. Another Supreme Court Appointee
  5. The Refugee crisis and why it sucks
  6. Some idiot quoting a Hollywood Celebrity on Trump
  7. Someone sharing an article that some other idiot half-copied from CNN talking about the Russian Hack.

… I’m starting to think that my wife had the right idea. It never ends and frankly, I think we’re all tired of it. The endless stream of political bickering… one side calling the other racist, the other side resorting to other childish name-calling, neither side willing to budge… the list goes on and on… FOREVER ON AND ON!!!

Frankly I think we’re all sick of it.

But Jim you…

I know… I contributed to it and continue to do so… and for that I apologize. I really hate politics. I’ve seen how it drives people away from causes, turns friends into enemies, rips families apart, and everything in between.

News outlets talk about voter disenfranchisement, well… this is really what they’re talking about. People don’t feel represented, this is true, but they’re also tired of all the BS being hacked back and forth. They are tired of listening to far more charged and triggered people go at it, nearly tearing one another to pieces, they’re sick of seeing their videos of their kids getting yelled at by agenda-driver educators when they challenge what’s being taught. They are tired of all of it.

This is NOT how we are supposed to be. It is not how we are supposed to live. The United States, and many other countries in the West were built on the idea that people can have different opinions, they can have different views and beliefs and while you may not agree with them, you should respect their opinions.

Where we live in a place where people are berated to no end for their political leanings, where they live in fear that some overbearing activist will contact employers if they see something they don’t like…

This isn’t the way things are meant to be. There is no free exchange of ideas. There is a fight to get out what you think before the other guy cuts you off.

This is why people don’t vote. We’re tired of all of it.

You Want More Trump? More University BS!

 

All right look… a lot of people have asked if I’m in favor of Trump with all of these posts. I’m not. I like SOME of the things he’s done, especially for American Jobs, but I still think he’s a loudmouth who is way too easily distracted by media stupidity to get the job done.

That being said, you want more Trump?

Clearly the York United Black Students’ Alliance does…

Per HeatStreet:

The student group, York United Black Students’ Alliance, got into hot water after a student, Jake Janic, complained publicly via a student Facebook group. Janic posted a picture of the poster which read: “catering to black students only”.
“My attention was brought to this poster because I was actually interested in getting my recert[ification] in first aid. It’s a skill everyone should know. Apparently my skin color is an issue though,” Janic wrote.

The poster offering CPR and first aid training is the official poster, as the black student group tweeted the poster themselves on their official twitter account.

Okay, first of all… groups on College Campuses that are basically segregated on the basis of race/gender/sexual orientation are complete and utter BS anyway. In this day and age, there is no need for them. We’re all humans, we’re all people. We are all equal in our rights. We may not all be born with equal opportunity, but in the Western World, we are born with the ability to make our decisions and get ahead in life. Change our stars if you will.

Offering a product or service to a specific group of people while excluding others is, by its very definition, discrimination in its simplest form:

dis·crim·i·na·tion
dəˌskriməˈnāSH(ə)n/
noun
  1. 1.
    the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.
    “victims of racial discrimination”

 

What’s worse? The group doubled down on their discriminatory behavior by labeling the criticism of their class as ‘Anti-black Racism.’ So try to stomach this for a moment… a group that is being accused of racism and discrimination is actually saying that such an accusation is itself racist.

However… lets be fair… lets take a look at their statements…

“It has come to the attention of the York United Black Student’s Alliance that we have anti-black racism in our midst,”

No… no you don’t. You’re committing discrimination based on race, which is a form of bigotry. Calling you out on it is not racism.

“Offering programs such as these to our community members is by no way in any means racist.”

Okay, in terms of actual definitions, this is correct. What they’re doing is not technically prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior. Especially since its ‘blacks-only’ which means no Latinos, Asians, Whites, etc. That said, it is still discriminatory.

“York University since it’s inception has had a longstanding history of erasure of black bodies, black students, and black space on this campus,”

Ehhh… maybe? I don’t know this for sure as I admit to my own ignorance of the history of York University… for no other reason than a lack of interest. Maybe one of my readers can clarify. That said, why do you need ‘black space’ on campus? Isn’t the idea of segregated safe spaces as xenophobic as it gets? Isn’t that counter-productive to the idea of equality, egalitarianism, and the philosophy that Western Society is a melting pot of different ethnic backgrounds, religions, etc.?

“For white folks to claim that they need additional space with whiteness subsumed in the entirety of the Canadian context is idiotic. The idea that some folks believe that white supremacy needs to be perpetuated by carving out even more space for white folks is redundant,”

NOW we’re getting into racism, big time. I hate to say this, but from my own time on a college campus, these groups that come together based on specific backgrounds, are some of the most exclusivist, bigoted, and downright racist people you’ll ever meet on a college campus, and this group is not exception…

I learned that the hard way, being a Catholic who was dating a girl that was apart of the campus Christian Alliance.

But Jim, this happened in Canada, how do you get more Trump this way?

One, because Americans see the same thing happening on our own campuses and I guarantee you that there is a large American population on that campus.

But all right, you win, let’s take a look at the world…

Brexit is coming… the Labour party has been reduced almost to a 3rd party and speculation of them ever regaining a significant hold on government is grim at best.

Le Pen is coming and with her another Brexit.

The collapse of the EU is slowing creeping up on us. It will soon become a small union where Angela Merkel dictates out policy to a bunch of poor eastern European countries.

The conservative parties in Holland and the Netherlands are quickly gaining power.

Trump is in office and with him exits trade deals like the Trans-Pacific, NAFTA, etc. The democrats have been reduced to a regional party with only 18 governors, a shrinking minority in Congress, and soon to be almost no representation in the Supreme Court.

The left has lost. Identity Politics has lost, globalism has LOST! The Middle and Working classes are tired of being forced to pay into governments that place a higher value on foreigners, on non-existent racial/identity issues, and things that shouldn’t concern them, then protecting the people they were elected by. They are tired of paying that government which takes their money and then abuses them for the privilege of exercising their rights, and then when they speak out against it, are told by social elites to check their privilege… when they never had any in the first place.

The worst thing is that the left hasn’t seemed to have learned their lesson and has adopted a ride out the storm philosophy, thinking that if they bury their heads in the sand and stay the course, this will all just go away.

Personally, I have no issue with them doing that because honestly… it’s about time these people lost and lost hard. Trump isn’t necessarily the way I wanted to see that happen, but I’ll take it.

The sad truth is that Trump isn’t going anywhere as long as stuff like this continues to happen… as long as we pay enough each year to buy ourselves new cars to send our kids to schools to be discriminated against and indoctrinated instead of educated.

This people, is how we get more Trump.

You Want More Trump? Michael Moore Quote…

Just as a forethought. I do not like Michael Moore, and I never have. Think about that as you read this quote… Heck, I don’t even agree with everything he said on the post that this quote was a part of, but this one piece says it all. Because apparently, some in the writing community still haven’t gotten the message…

“Everyone must stop saying they are “stunned” and “shocked”. What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all “You’re fired!” Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.”
-Michael Moore 11/9/2016

You Want More Trump? (Part 3)

You know, they say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results…

Because Hell is repetition and that’s where we are. You ever know someone who does something really stupid, curses up a storm about it and you just shrug saying ‘It’s okay, they made a mistake, they’ll learn and grow and not make that mistake again.’

… only to see them go back and do the same stupid thing the next day, thus repeating the same process?

That’s currently where the left stands, sadly. Like I’ve said a million and one times, I don’t like Trump, but at least I’m willing to give him a chance, which is a more than I can say about others. He has done something in his first few weeks in office that few, if any other presidents has ever done; KEEP HIS CAMPAIGN PROMISES!

Need a good example, take a look at the Main Stream Media. Look into each of their stories regarding Trump and then fact check them….

The Media: Trump Put White Supremacist Steve Bannon into a position of power in Washington.

The Truth: Steve Bannon is among the founding members of Brietbart’s board. The left considers pretty much anything right wing to be hateful, racist, and/or sexist. Brietbart is quite well-known for it’s strict adherence to the 1st Amendment, often letting its columnists go off on tirades.

And… that’s it. There is no other evidence against Steve Bannon that I could find… but apparently that’s enough to call him a racist, White Supremecist. No one has printed any DIRECT evidence in his words or actions that can be directly attributed to him, but oh well.
(If I’ve missed some direct evidence, please leave it for me in the comments and I’ll be happy to retract this.

The Media: Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch ‘founded student group called Fascism Forever Club’

The Truth: Completely false. Fake News. Jesuit Publication came out with a statement that confirmed, the Club Never Existed. Per a member of the faculty:
“There was no club at a Jesuit school about young facists… The students would create fictitious clubs; they would have fictitious activities. They were all inside jokes on the senior pages.”

The Media: Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.

The Truth: This is technically correct, but misleading. Yes Hillary got more overall votes than Trump, but does that mean that she was the more popular choice? Many democrats went Bernie or Bust and didn’t vote, the 3rd party vote isn’t factored in, others voted for Hillary because they didn’t want to see Trump win, and likely an even larger group voted for Hillary because the vote democrat no matter who it is. Could be Josef Stalin and they’d still vote for him over a republican. Then you’ve got the lowest of the low… the people who piss me off the most… the people who voted for Hillary because she has a vagina, no other reason, they just wanted the first woman in the White House… again, regardless of who.
The point is that if you actually ask people, you’ll find a shockingly low number of people who voted for her based on her likability or policies.

The same logic can apply to Trump. So It’s a little misleading to just show the numbers and say based on that, Hillary deserves the presidency.

The Media: Trump instituted a ban against Muslims. Violating the rights of people trying to come to the U.S.

The Truth:

IT IS NOT A MUSLIM BAN!!! 

Stop sucking up to Hillary and attempting to de-legitimize Trump.

Donald Trump instituted a ban against seven countries that have strong connections to terrorism and are politically unstable. He did so to protect his own people from harm, WHICH IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF ANY ELECTED OFFICIAL!  This is why he was elected, because people were tired of seeing our leaders put other countries, peoples, and economies first, and then have said leaders laugh at them or call them racist bigots when they complained.
Violating their rights to come to the U.S.? This is nothing more than propaganda. Legally speaking, foreigners have NO RIGHT to come to someone else’s country. In the most strict interpretation of international law, no one has that right. If a sovereign nation decides to close off its borders, it has every right to.

The Media: Angela Merkel is now the leader of the free world and a leader for the people. 

The Truth: Ugh… not her own people, that’s for damn sure. Though I suppose that’s accurate if you look at how many refugees have been dumped on Europe thanks to her open door policy.

Seriously left wing media, why would you want Merkel as the leader of the free world? Thousands of rapes, murders, and other crimes have been committed on her watch and can DIRECTLY be attributed to her policies. This is something that will taint her forever.
All of the rapes you see throughout Europe from these refugees, all of the terrorist actions, crimes, etc. SHE DID THIS! It is an indisputable fact!


Seriously, this is what we see from the left wing; identity politics, shame, and outright lies. Unfortunately the media has eaten it up and is spewing this continuous narrative… I can only guess in an effort to bring down the U.S. President. Unfortunately this kind of hysteria is being propagated in smaller outlets and eaten up by the wrong people in the general public AND PEOPLE ARE GETTING BADLY HURT AS A RESULT!!!

Ugh… I’m not even addressing that one… If anyone still believes that Sarah Silverman has an ounce of sanity left to her, I weep for you… Seriously can you imagine what would happen if one of us regular people ever said things like this.^

trump-thumbs-up

Yeah Judd Apatow is an asshole. I don’t like resorting to name-calling, but he is. Take a look at his comments on Ghostbusters if you need any more proof about how out of touch this… ‘guy’ is. Period. If you actually take anything he says seriously, you have more problems than I can address. Yes he deleted the tweet, but the internet NEVER FORGETS!

So yes, from the looks of things, despite a momentary professing to the contrary, it looks like the people who oppose Trump and who mostly vote democrat (sadly) have learned nothing and continuously push the more moderate people to the right.

Seriously, I didn’t vote for Trump… I’m actually tired of talking about him and I don’t like him, but I constantly see myself in a position of having to defend him because all I’m seeing from the media is easily debunked lies. It’s like they’re throwing things at the wall, hoping something will stick and sadly… not everyone does their due diligence and takes the word of the media as truth rather than face value.

You want more Trump? This is how you get it, because the right people are watching, listening, and will be voting again in 4 years.

Anyway, let me know what you think down below.
