Stupid Shit Andrew Sullivan Says

Bitter professional contrarian attention-whore Andrew Sullivan goes back to the eugenics well one more time.

The results are exactly as you'd expect.

Tomorrow I'll be celebrating my 13th blogiversary, and after 13 years, there is really nothing about the way the American political media operates left for me to learn.

So here are three things I know to be true.

First, there is a Club.  If you are in the Club, you will never miss a meal.  No matter how hard you shit the bed.  No matter what a goddamn fool you make of yourself over and over again.  No matter how played out and ludicrous your 1980s hot-takes on every god damn issue may be, your friends in the business will always have you back.

Second, there is also a blacklist.  Make no mistake about it.  And once you're on it, you're on it.  Period.

And third, this will remain the status quo until one fine day someone shows up who doesn't care about the Club, and who swings a bat just big enough to put a serious dent in them.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

"'When a sane, pragmatic, and fact-based negotiation of human differences is forbidden by ideological fiat, the alternative is not a reign of perpetual peace, but a festering of increasingly self-conscious and militantly defiant thoughtcrime, nourished by publicly unavowable realities, and energized by powerful, atavistic, and palpably dissident mythologies.' Which isn't actually the single stupidest thing ever said, although one gets the sense that perhaps [Nick] Land's definition of 'sane, pragmatic, and fact-based negotiation of human differences' is not particularly any of these things."

In conclusion: Mass incarceration and de facto segregation have their merits, so stop with this campaign to “evolve” and “improve,” you goddamn Marxist genderkillers.

—our new liberal media voice. Huzzah!
