A final roundup of news and commentary for the year.
A Twitter comment on our relentlessly revolutionary media.
The entire mainstream media is now pushing tenderly-written human interest stories showcasing transgenderism in a concerted effort to shift the Overton Window. These stories are incessant, and the tone is always utterly credulous.https://t.co/ABAf8r0Dq1

Over at Real Clear Politics, Dennis Prager has a column on that male swimmer identifying as female and cleaning house at all of the competitions. My one objection to it is that he refers to this guy as a “she.” If he is a she, she can swim with the girls. If you cede pronouns, you cede premises. I have an essay on this coming out in The European Conservative soon.
Speaking of the media mainstreaming child abuse, a mother’s Christmas card went viral after she announced that her little daughter was now identifying as “non-binary” and wanted to be referred to by “they/them” pronouns. People Magazine, of course, did a major profile on this mother, who now calls her daughter Claire “Clark.” The confusion we’re imposing on kids really is heartbreaking.
This headline from the Washington Post is a real classic: “Medical advances saving premature babies pose thorny issues for abortion rights advocates.” In other words, the fact that we are able to keep human children alive at earlier and earlier ages is a complication–for those who think we should be able to kill these children at that age. That’s not a “thorny issue”–that’s abortion supporters having a harder time justifying murder.
For sheer grotesqueness, nothing quite beats New York Magazine’s latest cover photo–of a woman who now identifies as male and had surgeons carve out a chunk of her thigh to create a faux penis. We are celebrating profound brokenness, mental illness, and self-mutilation.

Is this rock bottom yet?
That’s all for now. Perhaps the insane cultural fever dream will start to break next year. Early in the new year, I have an essay coming out in The European Conservative on the turning tide of the trans movement in Europe–so there’s hope that we may wake up!
