Behold, I give you the personification of Airhead America. Everything about this loathsome creature, including what she's being paid to say and how she says it—exudes militant moronry, which, when preponderant, spells dictatorship. The Tyranny of the Tawdry via the Despotism of the Demagogue will take hold long before Peikoff's Goblian theocracy does:


Misses the point

Its cute, but it is still from the perspective of a feminist-centric view; ie Dunham's add was bad for woman. Who cares? The add was another example of equating pro-free market ideas with misogyny, racism, hate-mongering, and evil. Dunham's add was what the Left always does, demonize anyone who disagrees with them as evil monsters. The Left NEVER argues in good faith. That is because it does not want to argue ideas. It wants to ELIMINATE its enemies. Soon that will be by murder.

This is what very few Objectivists understand. The Left is moving towards outright totalitarian violence. The Democratic Party is a CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION. The Dunhams of the world are the Left's useful idiots. This funny video does not get that. But yeah, its entertaining.

My first time in a sexist political ad was amazing

Crime and Airhead America

Doug Bandler's picture

Here is an interesting comment from a Conservative blog I read. Its context is that it is commentary on the murder of a NY liberal couple's beautiful children by the family's Dominican nanny Yoselyn Ortega. She stabbed them an insane amount of times and left them in a pool of blood in the kitchen and then tried to kill herself. This is the type of brutal crime that is COMMON these days especially from non-whites. Here is the comment. Read it, its insightful.

I think Michael Savage’s reaction to this crime is a normal one for a person of age 60 or greater. His generation remembers the time when America was a low crime country. A time when people would come to the aid of their neighbors. I first recognized our country had changed when the black thug Winston Moseley murdered Kitty Genovese in plain sight of her neighbors near Kew Gardens in Queens in 1964.

Compare and contrast to the America of the 19th century. Ordinary citizens would risk their lives fighting criminals. For example, when the Dalton Gang tried to rob two banks in Coffeyville Kansas in 1892, the citizens of Coffeyville spontaneously grabbed guns and stopped the robbery. I think this spirit is still alive in Israel. A friend of mine spent several years living there, and told me that someone tried to break into a house. The men of the neighborhood instantly ran into the street (some in their underwear) with guns and gave chase. When I visited Israel in 1986, a tour guide told me that in the whole history of modern Israel only one child was murdered (not including Arab terrorism and war).

This is in line with Airhead America. Its the consequence of the destruction of all moral standards which is due to the destruction of objectivity which is due to the philosophical legacy which none other than Manny Kant set loose on us. This is post-modernism in action; Slayer for music, ObaFilth for Prez, Slut glorifying tv shows and movies for "entertainment", sluts for women, black and Hispanic no-go-take-your-life-in-your-hands areas in every major city, whites being routinely killed by non-whites while the New Pravda (ie the media) forbid you to ever mention that there is a low level race war going on, government involved in every fucking thing you do, Sharia being enforced by the political elite, etc.. And idiocy being glorified and moral decency being mocked. America, the land of the stupid and the home of the self-loathing. Yeah America!!

Really, on my darker days I root for the whole fucking thing to collapse. Fuck it, let hundreds of millions die. Then maybe the next time humanity will get it right. If not, then fuck the human race. Maybe we really are little more than stupid fucking apes who can talk.

Its actually funny that my mother has always called me "oh joy, oh gladness". Heh.

Agreed Richard, although I'd already converted over almost solely to wine. As much as I love a crafted beer, and I still do have the odd tipple over the summer, but beer doesn't seem to like me, or rather, my Woolworth's bladder, anymore: 2.00pm to 8.00pm supping beer, means 2.00am to daybreak in the toilet Eye

Great video Linz.

We were drinking a bottle of wine a night, each, so decided we had to get a grip before the booze got a grip on us.

If you're trying to cut down on your drinking (good on you both) then stay the FUCK away from The Twisted Hop's Sauvin Pilsner.

Also, give the Three Boys' Pils a WIDE berth.

And avoid the Croucher Pilsner like the PLAUGE.

Serioushly.

Ah, Bro Hubbard!

We were drinking a bottle of wine a night, each, so decided we had to get a grip before the booze got a grip on us. For last five weeks, no wine Monday through Thursday, binge (a bit) Friday, headache Saturday, bottle of wine Sunday, then the looong nights to Friday again.

That explains it. No wine Monday through Thursday. That's what I call a drinking problem. This requires an intervention. Get a grip, man. Pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and get back on the wagon. See what awful things happen when you succumb to wowserism, of which I refuse to be an enabler. First you must recognise you have a problem. I hope you realise that abstention Monday through Thursday is addictive, and a gateway to far more serious conditions such as Babsism, constipation, Goblianity, Obafilth, socialism and serial misery.

Here's a motivational video from AA (Anals Anonymous):

Fortunately, some younger Republicans appear open to moving in that direction. Republican activist Margaret Hoover, for instance, is calling for the Republican Party to repudiate the religious elements of its agenda and to unite the party platform under the principle of “American Individualism.”

Where did I write off every individual in Russia? Or even mention music?

My point is, the abominable airhead in this video is the best (worst) symbol yet of the fact that the freest country on earth is being dragged down to a Russia-style dictatorship. You diminish the enormity of this. Proselytize about Russia by all means, but don't use an existing dictatorship as an excuse to downplay the vileness of what this unutterable bimbo-bitch represents. She is the perfect poster-girl for The Filth, who is turning America into the USSA.

Linz

The plight of the Russian punk airheads is par for the course for Russia, and your pin-up bimbos want an environmentalist tyranny of their own in any event. Meanwhile, Airhead America, riding a Gramsci-ist wave (while probably thinking Gramsci is a rapper), is taking down the greatest, freest nation on earth before our very eyes, and everyone's in denial. Pointing it out has nothing to do with misogyny: it's a fact that Airhead America is predominantly female, and the unspeakable *thing* in this video is representative thereof.

Back at you my friend.

I know for you this partly turns on music, but I'm going to come back to that.

You cannot simply write-off every individual in an entire country: 'part of the course for Russia'. The street protests against Putin there, and the crowds look to be pretty equally mixed between the genders, are in the tens of thousands: compare that to the lounge sized crowds any freedom issue can inspire in New Zealand. And these Russians are truly risking every damned thing protesting for their freedom from Russian State tyranny. Indeed, because of the dreadful totalitarian history of that country, thus they know how tangible the risks are, that makes every individual in such a protest, probably braver than every untested Kiwi (and I certainly include myself in that).

Regarding Pussy Riot - you see punk, and the red mist comes down Eye And I don't know what their environmental stance is: I just know that they stood up in an Orthodox Russian Church, specifically because that would shake up the God Theocrats, and used that venue to voice there dissonant dissent - and yes, it was dreadful head-banging, that was their political point - against the chief State Theocrat. The fact that is more than ballsy, is proven by how they now are forced to exist in remote state gulags, enduring extremes of cold, bullying and a life which no one would find worth living (which is exactly the point the Russian State is making). That is HUGE.

Consider what they have done, politically, including drawing the eyes of the world to Putin's tyranny, compared to what, politically, opera, to take one instance of high culture, has ever done. I love listening to opera, it does add to the height of living and the reason for doing so, but until I see a te Kanawa, a Carreras or even, to turn the screw on musical monomaniacal you, Hayley Westenra, or an equivalent Russian opera star, disabusing themselves of the more normal state fawning and feting, and standing in a Russian church denouncing Putin then I will won't accede to your view. If there is art completely enthralled and captured by the Establishment, because it is that Establishment, it is the high art forms such as opera.

Name me an operatic freedom advocate? Not on a symbolic level of showing us the heights and beauty a human being can attain, but one who has consciously sat down and written an essay on why it is so important to get the state out of his or her life?

And returning to the women issue again, and this despicable video, well, for every airhead female in the US, I could Google you an airhead male. Luke's points below on this are perfect.

Further, despite the good sense shown by the woman in Marcus's article reproduced below, let's look at just how dreadful the two party politics in the US is. Romney has trouble with the female vote: I'm wholly unsurprised, for its the Republicans Achilles Heel: Bible bashing, conservative christian morons. What option do women voters have there: the socialist who will destroy them philosophically then economically, or the Moron Mormon who won't even give them control of their bodies. I don't see how a freedom loving, libertarian woman in the US can even vote in this US presidential election. I differ from the woman in Marcus's article because volition over your own body is so important: that's why I'm personally so incensed by New Zealand not having civilised euthanasia laws, pointing out we're more likely to get that from Maryan Street (good on her!) than any bloody National Christ freak.

The Contemptible Doug

I grew up with four sisters, with whom, despite not managing to get together all that much anymore, I am still close. For the purpose of this argument, we'll take one out given she's intellectually handicapped, however, regarding the remaining three, line us up and try and tell us what we believe, or how we would vote, based on gender, and we'll laugh you out of our house. It would be hard to think of four more different people. At one extreme I have a sister who is an orthodox Christian probably at home in the Russian church, but at the other extreme is a self employed atheist freedom lover, similar, but quite different to me. And in the middle a middle of the road christian, state-suspicious home schooler. Your analysis is not only seriously flawed, it's muck.

I now see you're even into engineering women into your own image, or something equally ludicrous. Well you don't need to, it's been done already, it's called a fuck-doll. It has no brain, I understand is made of plastic or rubber, so can't hurt your feelings or ego in anyway, you can simply buy one, probably online, and take it off to Planet Doug, where I won't be taking my space ship anywhere near. The only point to your engineering is to remove the 'wo' from women. And in doing so, you will sheer off beauty and replace it with Doug. So I'm running ...

Footnote about misogyny

Quoting Hitch (Hitch 22), who I'm assuming was early on bi-sexual, toward solely homosexual from his public schooling:

"I find now that I can more or less acquit myself on any charge of having desired Marin [Amis] carnally. (My looks by then had in any case declined to the point where only women would go to bed with me.)"

That bit in brackets, and he wrote it in brackets, is 'interesting' on a sub-conscious level. He basically lived his mid to later life in heterosexual relationships and marriages, however, and I can't quite put my finger on it, but perhaps for Doug, there is definitely a real (not joking) misogyny that attaches itself in a certain strand of homosexual thought. There's a mechanism or unthinking reflex that is operating, somehow. And I'll leave it that, because I only read that Hitch chapter this morning, and it threw me a bit, but at the same time reminded me of a thread on SOLO many years ago, where Olivia said a similar thing in a 'debate' she was having with that flamboyant bloke that used to post here, can't remember his name, and I liked him, but he made a point of being camp, but also, unfortunately, racist. He was a gold dealer or some such. Anyway, that strand of active misogyny definitely came out in his threads.

According to left-wing Guardian...

Marcus's picture

...The Democrats' huge lead among female voters is crumbling.

"Angela Shaw does not believe it, but she is in the frontline of a war. The 42-year-old Florida lawyer is in a crucial swing state and thus represents what is emerging as a decisive factor in America's 2012 election – the female voters set to determine the race for the White House.

As the bitter contest enters its final week, President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are neck-and-neck and their campaigners are now doing everything they can to persuade voters that their party would best serve women's interests.

Television ads appeal directly to them; at campaign stops both Obama and Romney speak about them; and surrogates from Bill Clinton to Cindy McCain are wheeled out to tout for their support. Yet Obama has seen a strong lead among women almost disappear, making it feasible that they might vote on 6 November to put a Republican back in the Oval Office.

That is certainly what Shaw wants to see. "I think Obama has been an abysmal failure. He's done nothing for people like me," she said at a campaign stop in the central Florida town of Winter Park, where Romney's spouse, Ann, was holding a rally. Shaw said she had been largely out of work for the last four years, as had her husband, an estate agent. That, she said, was more than enough to make her want Obama to lose. "If Romney wins, I think there will be an economic uptick. It would be not be overnight, but the economy will be finally moving forward," she said.

That sort of sentiment is a nightmare to the Obama team. For months the Democrats have enjoyed a huge lead among women. It helped them weather much of Romney's rise after Obama's disastrous performance in the first presidential debate.

Now there are signs that this usually solid bulwark of support is crumbling. A poll last week from AP-GfK had Obama and Romney level among women at 47 points each. Only a month ago the same survey had Obama ahead by 16 points. The average of the overall national polls has Romney edging into a two-point lead. "Obama must do very well with women voters or not get a second term," said Professor Robert Watson, an expert in American studies at Lynn University in Florida...

Yet, for all the attention now focused on them, some female voters say the equation is actually simple. They do not like being singled out as a demographic, when they represent the majority of the electorate. Nor do they appreciate such things as abortion being pitched as "women's issues" that will solely decide their allegiance.

"Obama says that Romney has a war on women. I don't agree with that," said Shaw. "By saying that, he says that all women are concerned about is birth control and abortion. It demeans us. It says we don't have a brain," she said. Shaw says she has other, more pressing concerns when it comes to an election that is now just over a week away.

They have nothing to do with her sex, instead reflecting the deep and abiding economic woes that still mark the American electorate. "We haven't lost our home, but so many people I have worked with have lost everything," she said.

Self-Degrading Sex for Doug?

Luke Setzer's picture

Doug, please reconcile for us your high disregard for women with your self-declaration as a "lothario."

Apparently sleeping with sluts does not leave you feeling tainted.

As others have noted, I find your sweeping negative generalizations about women disturbing.

I know I have made wisecracks myself about the differences between the genders in the past, especially on the old SOLOHQ site, but they were intended as good-natured jabs rather than attempts to subjugate women.

The harsh truth is that men and women have equal capacities for stupidity and evil or for reason and good. It was a man named Karl Marx who cultivated Communism. It was a man named Adolf Hitler who cultivated Nazism. By contrast, it was a woman named Ayn Rand who cultivated Objectivism.

Please do some reflection and reconsider the notions you keep bellowing here.

Haven't you seem all the Obama clips I have posted recently, including a black woman who can barely speak in sentences talking about getting her free Obama phone which tells her when to vote. Also Samuel L Jackson yelling "wake the fuck up" and vote for Obama.
Compared to those this clip seems positively intellectual.

Of course I've seen the clips you've posted (I'd already seen that scum on Fox). You're missing the point. Those dregs are not part of Obafilth's campaign. This ad *is*. It's "not even that bad"? Jesus! What was that I said about everyone being in denial??!!

Seeing as the savages who cry "Death to America" and mean it actually hate everything the west stands for..give them a taste of what they cherish.

Take away those things that were made possible by western civilization.

Destroy their airplanes,power plants,irrigation systems and all infrastructure and technological advances that we supplied them.

Stop selling them cars,weapons,medicine,food,clothing,tv's and halt all foreign aid..give them what they want, send them back to the dark ages.

Complete banishment from everything they so hate.

Let them then have their own enlightenment era so they can possibly then resume joining the human race in a manor that befits civilized nations.(my answer to Benghazigate)

Altruism is all over Dunham's plea. Altruism is the motivator of all this to be sure. Its the old altruism-egalitarianism one-two punch that the Left wields with such power. And they succeed because of the legacy of Christian altruism but more importantly they succeed because of Kant's Categorical Imperative which *is* secularized Christian ethics; the version the Left has embraced. Kant made this Dunham creature possible. And if he were brought back to life today to see what he hath wrought, he would kill himself.

As for women, their nature just makes them susceptible to altruism and egalitarianism *and* pro-feminist welfare-statism. Also, their lustful, emotionalist natures make them vulnerable to amoralism (actually outright evil) and Machiavellianism. Women are dangerous; in love and in politics.

Now, if Objectivism should get its act together, correct its errors and dominate the culture, it would be interesting to see if it would result in moral, mindful women. I really want to believe that but part of me sees women as hopelessly defective at the population level. There will always be individual exceptions.

Really, humanity's ultimate salvation may not be philosophy but genetic engineering. Women were an evolutionary mistake. Perhaps genetically re-engineering the whole damn species and women in particular may be necessary before any ideal society can be achieved.

Doug, without taking anything away from generation airhead, your misogyny is bullshit.

Though their punk music is dreadful - in this case I think it's partly their point - but where in your weird world do you place these two brave women from Pussy Riot? They've stated categorically they'll continue their campaign against Putin on getting out of the gulags they've been carted off to.

more evidence of the weaker sex

Doug Bandler's picture

So many things wrong about this.

* The tattoo. I"m stating to wonder if tattoos are inherently nihilistic. I don't know but there is something about the way that people wear them today. Its as if uglification is their goal. Its part of the war against beauty which is part of the war against standards which is part of the Left's war against everything which is Kant's gift to the West. Thanks Immanuel.

* Look who she is appealing to: single liberal women (mostly white) who are the biggest sluts on this earth.

* This is just more evidence that no one under 30 should be given the franchise and possibly under 40.

* It associates voting left with sexual liberty further cementing the hatred by young women for the entire Right. Why? Because in their minds (or what passes for minds) the entire right stands for oppression: oppression of blacks, oppression of minorities, oppression of the environment, oppression of Muslims, oppression of women, etc.

I think no greater case can be made for temporarily disenfranchising women than this video. As I keep saying, its hard not to be a misogynist these days.

There seems more and more

There seems more and more truth to the adage that if tattoos made people more interesting, then people with tattoos would be more interesting. And perhaps have a clue.
