Wait, what?

Captain Europa is NOT amused by Marvel moving in on his turf:

In a move to make Captain America more appealing to a modern audience, Marvel announced Monday the iconic comic and film character will be rebooted as Captain Globalism.

“The very idea of America is offensive and outdated,” said a Marvel rep. “There are billions of people who weren’t able to relate to Captain America because of his triggering name and crude stars-and-stripes-colored uniform and shield. They’ll feel much more at home with Cap now that his goal is to break down all borders and unite everybody under a New World Order.”

What about global income equality? What about the Global Justice Initiative?

That’s NOT a defense

If your argument that the science is wrong and women are too funny relies upon Sarah Silverman, then you’ve got no chance at all:

We then calculated sex differences on the combined sample and found that men were, overall, rated as funnier than women. How big was the difference? In statistical technical terms, the effect size was 0.32, or roughly one-third of the standard deviation. In plain English, this means that 63 percent of men score above the mean humor ability of women. This is considered a small to medium difference.

We also looked for a long list of possible confounding variables that might explain the difference. The countries where the data come from, the sex of the authors doing the research, age of participants, whether there were more men or women judging the humor—none of it made a difference in our analysis.

What does it all mean? It means that to the best of our knowledge, on average, men appear to have higher humor production ability than women. Note that I emphasized the word average because the study does not mean, as Christopher Hitchens famously proclaimed, that women are not funny. The fact that men, on average, appear to be funnier than women, does not imply that every single man is funnier than every single woman. There are many great female comedians such as Sarah Silverman, Tina Fey, Ali Wong and historically, Lucille Ball, Joan Rivers, and many, many more. All these great comedians are funnier than 99.9 percent of all men.

As a general rule, men perform for women rather than the reverse. So it should hardly be surprising, or controversial, that the average man’s ability to do so is considerably more honed than the average woman’s.

Needless to say, female comedians are taking it well.

“I really think it’s unnecessary to do this study,” Marina Bye, a female comedian, told BBC. “They could have done something progressive.”


The terror of the cucks

They are beginning to realize that cucking will not save them. No one will ever be safe from SJWs. Not even if you’re a card-carrying liberal academic who votes Democrat and whose life purpose is to address inequality:

Earlier this month, Ascend, the high-performing Brooklyn charter-school network, fired its accomplished founder and CEO, Steven Wilson. What had Wilson done to deserve this? Not much.

Wilson, a school leader with decades of experience, a onetime senior fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and the author of two books on school reform, became perhaps the most visible victim to date of charter schooling’s worrisome turn to politically correct groupthink. Woke enough to declare that his life’s purpose is “addressing education inequalities,” he nevertheless dared to talk frankly about third-rail questions of educational rigor and excellence, and paid the price.

This past summer, on June 4, Wilson penned a blog post titled, “The promise of intellectual joy” that appeared on Ascend’s website. Wilson argued that “democratic” education must strive to “grant all students the knowledge and faculties of mind that had once only been afforded the elite.” He lamented that intellectual pursuit is today too often seen not as a democratic birthright, but as an elitist affectation.

Wilson fretted that values such as “objectivity” and “worship of the written word” had been dismissed as “damaging characteristics of white supremacy culture.” He said there was a “growing risk” that efforts to make schools more “diverse, equitable, and inclusive” could “be shamefully exploited to justify reduced intellectual expectations of students.” Schools must find ways to make clear that “intellectual pursuit” and “especially intellectual joy” are good for all students, of every race and background. If we fail to do that, Wilson argued, “The distinctly American project of equal opportunity will continue to be thwarted.”

One might find all this all to be anodyne enough. Yet, in the progressive-driven culture war that has consumed charter schooling, Wilson’s lofty sentiments were grounds for angry attacks. Soon after the post appeared, a group that labeled itself “Friends of Ascend” started a petition on Change.org that sought to “hold the CEO of Ascend Public Charter Schools accountable for white supremacist rhetoric.” The petition insisted that Wilson’s post contained “offensive and oppressive content that . . .  propagates destructive messages about the community that Ascend serves.”

A few months after the petition surfaced, Ascend’s board reviewed Wilson’s “record,” and he was fired.

Wilson isn’t someone who merits defending; this is clearly a case of a man reaping what he has sown. The point is that if even someone with his unquestioned left-liberal credentials is being targeted for discrediting and disemployment, what hope do you have of being left alone?


They fear us

And they fear us more than we fear them:

I’m one of the lawyers who writes Terms of Service for software companies. We try to make these Terms as short and clear as possible, because if we don’t, it means people either won’t use the products or they may sue the company, both of which are terrible results for the company. I’m always amazed by the questions suggesting we’re trying to sneak in some sort of clause saying that if you use the product, you agree to give us your left kidney or whatever. All we’re trying to do is give you access to free or affordable software products and not get sued for the way you choose to use them.

However, it’s not hard to understand why the converged software companies run roughshod over everyone when they keep seeing people react to deplatformings like this.

“I explained to them that I live in a city with 60,000 homeless people and that they are about to make me and my wife join their ranks.”

The extent to which this guy fails to understand the actual situation almost defies understanding. Conservatives staunchly refuse to understand the “war” part of “cultural war”. He simply does not grasp that forcing him and his wife join the ranks of the homeless would be considered a feature, not a bug, of the deplatforming process.

Few of even the most converged corporations would risk these “terrible results” if they had any cause at all to expect them as a possible consequence of their actions.


Another neoclown attack

It’s informative to see that no matter where they nominally come from, and no matter what organization they’ve happened to infiltrate, the neoclowns are irretrievably and unabashedly opposed to President Trump and the interests of the American people.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council staffer set to deliver dramatic testimony confirming that President Donald Trump sought dirt from Ukraine on a political rival, is a Jewish refugee from that country when it was part of the Soviet Union.

“I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a U.S. citizen, and I was worried about the implications for the U.S. government’s support of Ukraine,” Vindman, an Army officer and the top NSC official handling Ukraine, says in testimony posted Monday evening by The New York Times, which he is set to deliver to congressional investigators on Tuesday.

Precisely what does this Fake American know about what is proper or improper for the U.S. government? He’s observably less loyal to the United States than Benedict Arnold ever was. The God-Emperor should not hesistate to order him to be dishonorably discharged.

Every. Single. Time. This is why you always sink the damn ships.


Run on the freaks, Republicans

Nothing better underlines the stupidity of the Republican Party like its failure to shore up its weakness with white women by aggressively campaigning against fake women competing against girls in sports. But I enjoyed the SJW doublethink in this article about the glorious, but irrelevant victories of the mentally deranged:

Transgender athletes are having a moment. At all levels of sport, they’re stepping onto the podium and into the headlines. New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard won two gold medals at the Pacific Games, and college senior CeCé Telfer became the NCAA Division II national champion in the 400-meter run. Another senior, June Eastwood, has been instrumental to her cross-country team’s success. At the high school level, Terry Miller won the girls’ 200-meter dash at Connecticut’s state open championship track meet….

For all the hand-wringing about transgender women ruining women’s sport, so far there’s little evidence of that happening. Although CeCé Telfer and June Eastwood garnered attention for their outstanding performances on women’s collegiate running teams, they are hardly the only transgender athletes in the NCAA. Helen Carroll is a LGBTQ sports advocate who worked on the NCAA transgender handbook. Through her advocacy work, she has interacted extensively with transgender athletes and she estimates there are somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 to 200 transgender athletes currently competing in NCAA sports. Most of them “you don’t hear a thing about,” she says, because their participation hasn’t caused controversy.

So, what is it? Are they stepping onto podiums or are they irrelevant? Either way, Republicans should be capturing the female outrage about being forced to compete with and be beaten by men pretending to be women by banning all XY vs XX athletic competition.


Comedy control

In Great Britain, comedy is controlled by the BBC and the city councils. But it’s not any better in the USA, where the control is farmed out to Wikipedia admins, Hollywood agencies, and the converged social media companies for thought policing:

Controversial comedian Roy Chubby Brown will not be performing in Swansea next year, after the city’s Labour council cancelled a planned appearance because it ‘doesn’t reflect its values’.

The entertainer, 74, was due to appear in the Welsh city next April to perform at its Grand Theatre.

But Swansea Council has now scrapped the show after deciding it would not work alongside its new ‘programming aspirations’.

They’ve apologised to 52 advance ticket holders, who will be refunded.

Furious fans have slammed the council following the decision, accusing them of dictating what the public can and cannot watch.

Born Royston Vasey, Roy Chubby Brown’s acts consist of blue humour, a free speaking style and lack of concern for political correctness.

Though controversial, the comic has a legion of fans and performs at the Grand Theatre regularly. 

In a statement released on social media, Swansea Council said: “We have decided not to go ahead with a provisional booking for Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown after considering how it would work alongside our new programming aspirations and partnerships. We want all our communities and staff to feel welcome and we felt this booking was unlikely to reflect our values and commitments to them.

“After fully considering the booking, we are refunding 52 advance sale ticket-holders and we apologise to those who may have been disappointed. We recently decided that a fresh approach is essential if we are to cater for future audience needs. Our aim is to refresh the Grand Theatre programming and offer something new and fresh for all our communities; this will meet Swansea Council’s commitment to culture, regeneration and equal opportunity.”

It’s not an accident that the social justice program of Tolerance, Equality, Progress, Inclusivity, and Diversity can be described as TEPID.


Creepy Joe is over

The mainstream media has abandoned Joe Biden:

Joe Biden risks a humiliating third or fourth-place finish in Iowa early next year, according to nearly a dozen senior Democrats in the state who attribute it to what they see as a poorly organized operation that has failed to engage with voters and party leaders.

With fewer than 100 days until the Feb. 3 caucuses, Biden is failing to spend the time with small groups of voters and party officials that Iowans expect and his campaign’s outreach has been largely ineffective, according to 11 senior Democrats in the state. They worry that could send Biden to a crippling loss behind Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg, who have highly organized campaigns in Iowa, said the Democrats, most of whom spoke on condition of anonymity to speak candidly about the campaign.

They know the God-Emperor would destroy him, so they want him out of the race as soon as possible. Warren is the media’s candidate; they’ll disqualify Buttigieg as soon as he actually looks viable because there is no way they want him as the actual nominee.

For Democrats, the gay candidate has become the equivalent of the black candidate for Republicans. Everyone feels good about supporting him in the early going, and everyone knows perfectly well that he will never be the nominee.


AH:Q #2 on Bounding Into Comics

Bounding Into Comics covers the release of Alt-Hero: Q #2: Not Dead Enough, which is now available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Arkhaven Comics publisher Vox Day announced Chuck Dixon and Helix Haze’s Alt-Hero: Q #2 is now on sale.

Alt-Hero Q “explores the incredible QAnon phenomenon that is sweeping the planet.” The story takes place in the world of Alt-Hero and stars federal agent Roland Dane.

Dixon described the series to us last September:

“What we’re presenting is an action/thriller hero that I’m really excited to be creating. We’ll be inserting him into stories of global cabals and dark conspiracies that threaten not only world peace but the basic human rights of the individual. Our guy, Roland Dane, is an experienced law enforcement professional who has to drop out of the system to act as an operative for the mysterious organization he knows only as Q. Roland is a little rough around the edges and his methods are often direct but he’s one man trying to make a difference for all of us.”

The series was originally crowdfunded on IndieGoGo and trended #1 on the crowdfunding website when it first launched.
