Almost More Journalists Than Protesters in Jerusalem

Gatestone has an excellent piece on the Jerusalem reporting. Journalist tourism is still a growing sector of the economy.

The Palestinians declared a three-day-long “rage” spree over US President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Thus far, however, it seems that the real anger is showing up in the international media, not on the Palestinian street.

Question: How many foreign journalists does it take to cover the Palestinian reaction to Trump’s announcement? Answer: As many as the Israel-Palestinian-conflict-obsessed-West can manage to send.

The massive presence of the international media in Jerusalem and the West Bank has taken even the Palestinians by surprise. Since Trump’s announcement on December 6, dozens of additional journalists and camera crews have converged on Israel to cover “the big story.”

New Meryl Streep Trash Movie

I have watched this trailer a couple of days ago and my eyes are still rolling.

Meryl Streep stars in a new political movie called ‘The Post’. As the title suggests the artwork is about the newspaper Washington Post and it is based on a real story; only that, of course, it isn’t based on a real story.

The topic is the release of the Pentagon Papers which were first published by Daniel Ellsberg in the New York Times in 1971. In modern cultural Marxist indoctrination mania this basis causes some headache. Daniel Ellsberg is not a woman. Even Meryl Streep, the most overrated actress in the world, wasn’t asked to play him as a man. Instead the Pentagon Papers must now have been published by the Washington Post who had a woman chief editor at the time.

The story therefore now circles arount the Post who were handed a part of the papers by Ellsberg. They were almost entirely risk-free. Even an attempt to put out an injunction against the paper by the general attorney was immediately struck down by the district court. In the movie, Streep fears jail and the destruction of ‘her’ company. The US Supreme Court is feared for handing out prison sentences. It heavily relies on the stupidity of the audience.

The twist is now that the weight of the world lasts on the shoulders of a woman, a woman no man had confidence in. The times they were sexist, not the New York Times, the 70s. The men: white. The president: a conservative. Streep faces pure evil.

Didn’t she already make that very same movie? I still shake from the memory of the anti-Thatcher slander ‘The Iron Lady’. The Iron Lady was a full-blown, disgusting character assassination. It has in common with the upcoming movie that it rewrote history, heaping one lie on top of the next, while declaring the ‘likability’ factor of the leading character to be the portrayal of a feminist harpy. Pass the popcorn bag to whoever needs to vomit!

 

 

New York Times Op-Ed Tells Twitter to Stop Giving ‘Equal Footing’ to All Voices

 

I hate the New York Times with the hot, hot heat of a thousand suns.

A New York Times op-ed calls on Twitter to “issue badges of status or of shame based on signals about how people actually use, or abuse, Twitter.”

Blonde in The Belly of The Beast

Followers of my blog know that I feature frequently videos that talk about larger issues than everyday affairs. One of my favorite sources is the beautiful and sweet twenty-something Becky who runs a YouTube Channel with the name ‘Blonde in the Belly of the Beast‘.

Little do we know about her. She grew up in St Louis, studied at Missou, worked at Wall Street, moved shortly to LA, settled down with her fiancée in Seattle, and is in search of a suburban home right now. I hate that I can’t recommend her work providing her full name or at least a pseudonym which includes a surname. And yet she has the best channel on YouTube.

Her videos are usually between 15 and 20 minutes long and well researched. Social and political topics that are rarely spoken about are presented in a crisp, academic way. All of her sources are transparently mentioned and, if possible, linked to in the description box.

She decided to start her video blog when she was travelling across Europe. She ran into Muslims every step of the way and realised that this group of people behaved very differently from everybody else. The most intense situation happened when some dudes were circling around her, looking menacingly into her eyes while she was sitting on a bench. A policeman came along and did not reprimand the men. Instead she was told to get her shoes off the dirty bench.

The videos differ in quality which is normal for any series, including my blog posts. Yet, I have not seen one video that was actually bad.

Sometimes it takes a while to open one’s mind for an issue. I have seen videos that sound like satires, particularly when she speaks about men and women. I was laughing when she talked about leading gender-conform lives and that men should be dominant in their relationships.

Live and let live! I can respect all kind of personal arrangements and if a woman wants to be led, I am happy to lead. I respect if people make other choices. For me it was cringe-worthy at first to hear somebody advocating for male domination. And sexy! I must admit that. So, even for me, opening my mind for Becky took a moment. One can advocate for something while respecting other choices.

Why does one cringe in the first place? We cringe because of our romantic idea that sexual identity does not matter. It does. I realise now that her blog is only possible because she is a woman. It is only women who live through hell in high school and know all the traps of human interaction. Only women have this absurd knack for observing human behavior.

If you put your romantic idea aside and allow yourself to watch the world through Becky’s lens, you see the female reality: women who exploit unattractive men, coward men who think it is not modern to defend women against violent attacks, feminists who perpetrate or hide sexual assault, unhappy career women, childless frumpies and so on. It opens the door to the reality, a reality in which women want children more strongly than men and in which men want to support and defend women, yet for romantic ideals both men and women deny themselves their wishes.

Of course, her video blog would be dull if she only talked about romantic relationships, about manliness and womanliness. She talks about leadership, technology, guns, corruption and all other aspects of politics and society. I don’t agree with everything she says, but I can agree to disagree. So open your mind for the smart and pretty lady with no proper name!
