Hey, You Know Who's Just Like Hitler?

People who refuse to pander the absurd delusions of prats who think they're actually ubermensch, that's who:
Journalist Nick Robinson has likened the behaviour of Boris Johnson to a 'dictator' for broadcasting directly to the public on social media.
Presumably, as opposed to democratically-elected politicians, who are famously camera shy and communicate via mime.

Plus: you know who else had a dog, right? 

Of course, there's a reason for all this girly hysteria:
The former BBC political editor, currently a host of Radio 4's Today programme, called the Prime Minister's social media use a 'form of propaganda' and said it was undemocratic to avoid proper scrutiny by journalists.
...And, seriously, how could we do without groundbreaking analysis like comparing everyone you don't like to Hitler?

More to the point though, who does this prat think he is anyway? How did he become the Scrutineer In Chief? Is there some kind of Shaolin Temple for MSM drones? Did he beat the previous Scutineer in single combat?

Meanwhile, back in the real world, 'Freedom of the Press' is short for 'Freedom of the Use of the Printing Press'. It means anyone is free to print whatever they want with no requirement to seek some kind of publishing license from a Department of Approved Publishers....

 ....In other words, in so far as it guarantees the right of any citizen to publish what they want, it means the literal opposite of establishing some kind of super elite order of certified journaljismers, with special press freedoms no one else gets.

Nick Robinson can demand the PM invite him in for a meeting. So can Bob Smith, of 22 Acacia Avenue. Neither have the right to be granted a meeting.

Which is the whole point right there. We now have a MSM that's genuinely believes they're some kind of modern equivalent of the Samurai - wimpy, entitled Samurai admittedly - a cult of uber citizens with special rights, above and beyond the common rabble. They're utterly detached from real life, and proud of it. All that's happened now is that the penny has finally dropped with the conservative movement. Someone's finally run the figures and worked out that rather than pander to a bunch of elitists weirdoes, representing about six postcodes in north London, it's far better to reach out to actual, normal people.

I don't know how good Bob Smith is at the whole 'scrutiny' thing, but he's surely more in touch with reality than narcissistic prats like Nick Robinson.

The Peasants Are Revolting

Staying on my favorite topic, namely: how I'm right about everything, I can't help feeling deja vu all over again:
[Joker director] Todd Phillips has come out swinging in defense of his new film Joker, amid fears its depiction of a depraved murderer could incite real-life violence...

Phillips told The Wrap that he believes such critiques are coming from the 'far-left' who are starting to sound the same as conservatives when they complain about 'immoral' films made by Hollywood. 
'What's outstanding to me in this discourse... is how easily the far left can sound like the far right when it suits their agenda. It's really been eye opening for me,' he stated.
Yes, we've noticed.

Back in the day, it was the left that wanted shows to be challenging and push boundaries. Now, they want to shovel pablum on the public. I wonder what's changed?

All of which brings me onto the open sewer on the Thames. All week midwit drones have been on TV claiming to be outrageously outraged that the public is using indelicate language to describe our worthless political class. Apparently, we should all follow the example set by our betters.

And he's supposed to be the moderate. Then again, his boss hangs out with guys who actually kill MPs, so you know... grade on the curve.

This is no longer just about the EU. We're being asked to accept that there are different grades of citizenship, so that when David Lammy is spreading insane, racist, conspiracy theories that just proves how 'passionate' he is. Meanwhile, the rest of us are apparently meant to tug our forelock and speak only when spoken to.

The left spent years sneering at the monarchy, but now they want us to treat them like royalty.

The only answer to that is not only no, but hell no!

You May Not Be Interested In Culture War...

As bad as the Supreme Court's Screw Brexit decision is - pretty bad considering it appears to be based on the well known legal doctrine of 'because we say so' - it's almost as bad listening to Professional Conservatives claiming to be shocked, shocked, to find that the courts are a lawless, politicised mess. Yes, indeed, who could have seen that coming?

Just a thought, but if you keep demonstrating a proven inability to predict outbreaks of heavy drinking on December 31st, you might want to rethink your claim to be super smart. As it is, real conservatives have spent years calling the shot and the pocket, while the genius set have called them crazed conspiracy nuts. Now Brenda Hale has done the legal equivalent of gobbling down a live mouse on TV while addressing the public as 'you warm bloods' then ripping the flesh off her face to reveal the scales underneath, I think we may have to look again at what definition of genius we're using here.

Not all Professional Conservatives couldn't see it coming. Some of them are just pain gutless. Others genuinely believe dealing with our lawless courts is too much of a hot potato and so they may as well go along to get along....

And that's how the Tories have romped to three landslide victories in a row!

Meanwhile back in the real  world, the Tory Party's refusal to take on these nut cases doesn't make them look moderate, it makes them look weak and out of touch. Say what you like about Labour, but they have an actual agenda - creating Hell on Earth - and the Tories? What do they really stand for?

Oh yeah: muh tax cuts.  

Here's the thing though: the whole reason why the left needs to use politicised judges like Brenda Hale to push their nutty agenda is precisely because they know it's electoral poison. If they thought the public would support it, they'd push it themselves. Instead we have the insanity of the courts ruling that Parliament must stay open even while they make politics entirely irrelevant.

Hey, who needs that 'citizenship class' stuff on how a bill works its way through Parliament, when Brenda Hale and the rest of the freaks can simply pull new laws out of their penumbra.

Still, now that Queen Brenda is our Decider In Chief, at least we can get a definitive answer to those questions that have been hangin round for years:

Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?

Pineapple on pizza or not?

Who would win in a fight between Iron Man and Batman?

True, there aren't any actual laws covering these issues, but who needs laws anyway these days?

How DoYou Do, Fellow Normal People?

Good post from Ace of Spades about the American left's latest Kavanaugh fiasco, and a great line at the end:
I think we all assume that the practice of quote-fishing -- "Could you say x for me? It would rilly rilly help" -- is pretty much 90% of "journalism" today. They don't find witnesses; they cast them, and have them repeat pre-written lines that will forward the plot
Of course, round here the MSM goes one better and tries to pass off creepy wierdo fanatics as regular Joe Publics what just happened to be passing at the exact same time as a liberal hate figure was in the area.

Annoying as this is, it's also revealing about where the modern left is at: they claim to be the voice of the people, except there are no normal people left in their loony cult. It turns out that calling half the country morons while campaigning for official recognition of all seventy-two genders is not a winning strategy after all. Hence why every 'ordinary member of the public' pushed by the MSM turns out to be a liberal snoot in socioeconomic blackface.

Getting Ahead Of The Myth Making

Bad news everyone! Roland Rudd's sister has joined Boris Johnson's brother and Winston Churchill's grandson in exiting the Tory Party.

If the Tories keep going on like this, they're going to lose their sponsorship deal with

Also: Diversity Is Our Strength, you guys!

Ambitious young white kids who want to join the police are getting the door slammed in their face, but apparently the Tory Party can never have enough snoots - even ones that are related to one of the country's craziest remoaners.

That's not even the worst of it! Not only are we expected to be shocked - shocked - to find that remoaner Amber Rudd is outrageously outraged by BoJo's outrageous behavior, we're also being told this proves the Tory Party is risking electoral disaster by losing proven vote winners like Amber Rudd.

Hey, if Amber Rudd is such a perfect example of the Nu Tory Wizards of Smart, how come she never cast her spell over her own constituency.

Yes, indeed: 346 vote majority! That's what it takes for the MSM to hail you as an expert on electability.
