Ming Tea (Austin Powers) - BBC
I’ve always admired Tyrrell’s writing skills. He did not disappoint in this piece regarding these two dunderheads.
I’ve had similar experiences with liberals. There’s a severe level of programmed virulence they manifest, like robots utterly unable to think past their programming. There’s literally a humanity, or a profound level of humanity, missing from them. They assume no common ground with anyone, only politically defined differences, and those differences are absolute.
In other words, they don’t see themselves as human beings talking with other human beings in common humanity, jointly discussing differing views as human beings for our common human culture. No. Instead, they see themselves as paragons of not even virtue but perfection, of established truth, and anyone differing from their views in even the slightest ways as medieval heretics, and that difference invoking criminal charges up to and including burning at the stake. And yet at the same time, when challenged they can’t defend those views - but they know they’re right, and they know the greatest possible evil is the questioning of those views.
It is very disconcerting - something has been broken, lost, replaced, removed from them. There is no casualness, no relaxation, no insight, no humor, no perspective. They are frightening people, if they even are people anymore. I think they more see themselves as enforcers of purity, which I believe is also what the Muslim religious police call themselves.
Medication might be part of the problem. Too many people walking around these days, who are way over Medicated.
I have had these exact same conversations with Brits on Facebook. These people are painfully unaware of American culture and politics and yet spew forth their ignorance with a shocking amount of confidence. I suppose they think their plummy accents (at least on tv) and their “whilst” instead of “while” on the page will intimidate and shut up Americans.
Happily, their stupidity made me take down my Federalist Papers and am happily going through it looking for facts in which to pink them.
Obviously Nigel Farange, Lord Mockton, Daniel Hannan, Boris Johnson, Trevor Loudon, Paul Nuttall and Steve Hilton were not used. They understand the rise of Trump or should.
