Return of the Bernie Bros…Chapo Trap House…Grabs’m by the Pussy (Part 2)

Today’s Guardian offered a profile of three White dudes, based in Brooklyn who have a podcast…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jul/23/chapo-trap-house-leftwing-breitbart#comment-102561059

Apparently they are on the left, or what currently passes for the American left.

After all they are White. Male. Apparently under 40. Have beards. And make what they call jokes that combine passing knowledge of people like Adorno and Marx and fast food, with what could charitably be called, snark masquerading as criticism.

The aesthetic (we use the term loosely) being that they are authentically disgusted with the establishment (liberal and conservative) and are fed up with pathetic attempts at comity.

And so, they even make jokes about people being forced to kneel before them, but don’t take it seriously, because ya’know, it’s just podcast humor.

Because when you’re a young White male on “the left” they let you get away with anything; you can just grab’m by the pussy,and beat them over the head with copies of The Arcades Project.

And then when they say we don’t see a problem with Lenin forcing dissident intellectuals into exile and people say that makes you sound like a fascist, they can say: Hey it’s a joke!

Trump’s Grab’m comment was clearly indicative of a disturbed violent mindset, and when his supporters said it was just locker room banter, it helps to understand they were right It was the sort of locker room banter that you hear coming from thugs, who hate women, and hate complexity, and paradox, and can’t tolerate being questioned.

And when Chapo Trap House makes jokes about forcing dissident intellectuals into boats at gunpoint and sending them into exile, it’s also a joke….

about their desire to have absolute power because they feel so utterly powerless, just like the cyber Brownshirts who worship Jordan Peterson. As if revolutions were the purview of man-boys living off of a steady diet of fast food and video games, just like when they joke about people having to kneel before them, because like so many other wounded little boys who wish they were men, they feel so awfully powerless, and that makes them very, very angry and so a deluge of passive aggressive snark, dressed up as political relevance.
