Amanda Marcotte - blogger, feminist, loner, and frustrated angry person. I am and always will be a loner. - Amanda Marcotte.

Now even I hate to see someone picked on too much, but the F-bomb blogger of Edwards fame just seems to crave the attention and wallow in the lunacy of the Left.

Since I am still banned from the land of Pandagonia I can’t play in the Feminist sandbox anymore.I feel like the little boy kicked out of the park by a bunch of girls (and one girly-boy). And since birth, due to certain anatomical parts she’s missing, I’m automatically part of the vast conspiracy of patriarchy that seeks her perpetual subjugation.

I guess that’s the excuse that allows me to override my usual kind and considerate nature to poke her with a stick from time to time. (Plus I think she deserves it.)

And Miss Marcotte once said that I ‘have nothing to say’. She was wrong on that account as well.

If you get to know a person well enough, you often get a sense of where their beliefs, ideology and prejudices originated. It appears that Ms. Marcotte has decided to cry us a river and explain perhaps why she has turned into the bitter, unhappy and angry person she is today. Her post Nine Months for a Pound of Flesh gives some interesting insights into her disturbed view of society and culture. I also learned some details about her ‘cycle’ that I would have preferred not knowing, but thanks to her for sharing anyway.

“I called my sometimes-boyfriend, my inconstant lover and told him I was probably pregnant. I wanted him to offer to pay for the abortion. He offered instead to marry me.

I nearly threw the phone against the wall. Instead, I told him it may not be his. He said he didn’t care.”

And one wonders why this ‘catch’ has so far managed to elude a satisfying relationship with a member of the opposite gender. Waking up next to someone who sees a conspiracy of misogyny and ‘the patriarchy’ in literally everything would be a depressing experience to say the least.

Her elevation, even so temporarily, to a position of minor prominence as a member of a major presidential campaign with her appearance in Time magazine and news stories is a disturbing indictment of society and the Democratic party (not to mention the Edwards campaign). From the beginning she was a bitter, foul-mouthed shrew raging against the world around her. For her to rise to the top of the boiling cauldron of the blogosphere is an interesting sociological study in and of itself. Here, radical and fringe ideologies and conspiracies are given credence and maintain a loyal following. Disturbed people are put on a pedestal for bombastic muttering and flinging offal at all those you deem part of an oppressive culture. It isn’t pretty but it does seem to attract a cheering section wherever it is found. And Pandagon.net is one radical echo chamber that has to be seen and experienced to be believed.

Feminism as taught by the likes of Amanda Marcotte and her ilk is little more than gilded hatred and harlotry hiding behind the skirts of “liberation”. Do what you will, for tomorrow you may die. And screw the consequences ( or abort them if necessary).

This is a slightly older, well done piece of the rise and fall of she who would cast herself as the Joan of Arc of modern feminism. And though she has become the focus for so many bloggers like myself, the indictment isn’t really against her personally, but the broader movement that she champions that has propelled her to prominence and lent her an aura of ‘credibility’.

“What’s utterly insulting is the idea that someone asshole Republican legislator introducing an ultrasound bill knows better than you do what the ramifications of your decision is, or that the ultrasound is the issue. Or, worse, he probably has guessed correctly that a forced childbirth will cripple your career and possibly leash you for life to a man who is unduly cruel and controlling-or at least will turn you into a fetal incubator for said Bible-thumping loonies-and that’s what he is hoping will come to pass.“

Personally, it would only appear that Feminists in general must have incredibly poor luck/judgment/intuition when it comes to men.

The anti-family, anti-tradition, and anti-marriage ideologies seek to enshrine promiscuity while smashing every vestige of morality, values, family, self-restraint, self-respect, self-control and responsibility that came before it. It is the ultimate in selfishness. I come first and all that would hinder my celebration of hedonism deserves to be smashed and discarded. In modern feminism, the female and her every whim and pursuit of pleasure, leisure and self-expression must come before all others including her husband, children, family, community, church, society, nation or culture. It is the most intellectually barren exercise in self-centeredness that I have ever witnessed, and the theme of ”it’s all about me” is repeated over and over again. It is the mantra of those who have decided that guiltless self-indulgence is the ultimate liberation and their revenge against the opposite gender.

It is a philosophy primarily centered on the concept of sex without guilt, boundaries, definition, baggage, commitment, children or consequences. And all those who might object on any level are cast in the role of vile villain seeking to impose outdated misogyny and patriarchal practices on the newly enlightened. Infanticide and degradation are celebrated as liberation. There is a subtle twisting of truth and exploitation of true injustices and wrongs committed against women in history that is used to justify the grotesquely spawned ism that desperately struggles to present itself as a rational ideology representing ‘human rights/ and ‘equal justice’ for women. Their universe is one where men are mainly brutes, abusers, and oppressors, marriage equals slavery and drudgery, unborn babies are mere parasitic cells, and Christianity is an evil mythology that deserves to mocked at every opportunity.

Such is the ideology that is championed by the likes of Amanda Marcotte, and that is why she has earned my disdain.

Amanda Marcotte, (Anti-Christian) Martyr To The Cause

And what does Amanda ‘hot, white, sticky, Holy Spirit’ Marcotte have to say in response to Dave and the attention he has given her?

(Dave) ... quit projecting on me. Since your “outrage” is nothing but irritation at people you wrongly consider your inferiors, you think that the rest of us are cynical assholes like yourself. Step out of your skin, look at reality. You hate others because you are a contemptible sliver of a human being and hope that everyone else is, so that you feel okay about yourself. Well, you’re wrong. A lot of us are good people, and that just makes your nastiness even worse. – Amanda Marcotte

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

- President Ronald Reagan

 ”I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and Liberals at bay. And the nation free.”

—William F. Buckley Jr.

"Liberals want to regulate just about everything: where we live, what fuels we use, what car we drive, whether we can drive or be forced to use government mass transit, where we send our kids to school, what doctor we see, and even to what extent we express our approval or disapproval of others’ lifestyles. It’s hard to find something liberals don’t want to regulate. Is that a world you want to live in?” 

"At such a time in history, we who are free must proclaim anew our faith. This faith is the abiding creed of our fathers. It is our faith in the deathless dignity of man, governed by eternal moral and natural laws. This faith defines our full view of life. It establishes, beyond debate, those gifts of the Creator that are man’s inalienable rights, and that make all men equal in His sight. "

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"And if we elect a government that subverts or weakens or ends our war against terrorism, we can count on this: We will soon face enemies that will make 9/11 look like stubbing our toe, and they will attack us with the confidence and determination that come from knowing that we don’t have the will to sustain a war all the way to the end."

- Orson Scott Card

"In response to skyrocketing gas prices, liberals say, practically in unison, 'We can’t drill our way out of this crisis.”' What does that mean? This is like telling a starving man, 'You can’t eat your way out of being hungry!'  'You can’t water your way out of drought!' 'You can’t sleep your way out of tiredness!' 'You can’t drink yourself out of dehydration!' Seriously, what does it mean? Finding more oil isn’t going to increase the supply of oil? It is the typical Democratic strategy to babble meaningless slogans, as if they have a plan. Their plan is: the permanent twilight of the human race. "

-Ann Coulter

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
-Samuel Adams
