Not Tired of Winning Yet XLIX

If you have been following the news this week, you have noticed two stories receiving attention from myriad news outlets about two leftwing goofballs making fools of themselves in public.

Behold the Bold Resistance!

The first is one Senator Booker who, in an act of glorious pretend martyrdom, volunteered to be expelled from the Senate for violating its rules, except in reality he had not violated any rules.

In hopes of embarrassing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Booker released a document concerning the legality and propriety of what the Left calls racial profiling (which sane people call describing what your assailant looked like to the cops, so they can find the guy). However, the gesture was symbolic, since the document neither held any material in any way embarrassing to Mr Kavanaugh, and since the document had been released previously to the public, and therefore did not fall under any Senate rule forbidding anything.

The Daily Caller reports:

Bill Burck, a records representative for the George W. Bush presidential library, said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the documents were cleared last night and that Booker was already told he could use them publicly.

“We cleared the documents last night shortly after Senator Booker’s staff asked us to,” Burck explained. “We were surprised to learn about Senator Booker’s histrionics this morning because we had already told him he could use the documents publicly.”

“In fact, we have said yes to every request made by the Senate Democrats to make documents public,” Burck added.

The second story concerns an opinion editorial appearing in the pages of the New York Times, a former newspaper, allegedly from a White House staffer who claims to be protecting our democracy by doing his all to undermine the results of the last election.

Namely, Anonymous steals documents off the president’s desk before the president can sign them, or otherwise  delays, deters, and prevents the president from carrying out the agenda that American people elected Mr Trump to carry out. Anonymous is doing this for our own good, you see.

He also complains that Mr. Trump is a harsh boss, blunt and crass in speech, untied to conservative principles, and changes his mind. The is in contrast, I suppose, to President Obama, whose stance on gay marriage is firmly rooted in the strong Christian principles the Obamas evidently learned in the church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, no doubt a long lost cousin of mine.

The Right cannot cease from wiping our tears of laughter away at the idea that Anonymous thinks Mr. Trump being blunt and crass in speech, untied to conservative principles is a surprise to anyone. His blunt crassness is a feature, not a bug, and is why we voted for him. His inability to articulate principles is of concern only to intellectuals. The common man merely wants a president who is patriotic, who honors the cross and loves the flag, who salutes the veterans and the police, and who says ‘Merry Christmas.’ And, as in nearly everything, the common man is right and the intellectual is wrong.

My only comment about these antics of the two goofy, faetherbrained Leftwanks is to repeat the words I used in my very first column, lo these many moons ago, on why I am not tired of winning yet, as to the psychology involved.

Any married man who has ever suffered a recurring discussion with his wife over some matter you believed settled long ago may recognize the pattern here.

The masculine mind (which many men possess) is results-oriented. He does not care about your feelings, he cares about getting the task done. He cares about practical rather than symbolic victories.

The feminine mind (which far too many men possess) is process-oriented. She cares about your feelings. She feels that, like a small child being well raised to have good character, once your character is trained to behave a certain way, the results will take care of themselves. She cares about symbolism, because symbols is what stirs and motives the spirit.

The two minds are complementary. When in conflict, the womanly mind tends to lose in the short run and win in the long run. Hence, a conservative (who tend to be masculine minded) tends to win in politics; but a leftist (who tend to be feminine minded) win in the culture, hence win in the long run, because the generation of children they beguile with their utterly symbolic thinking eventually comes of age, and eventually gets tenure. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

So, for example Keystone Pipeline would be a safer and better way to move oil, threatening less damage and less severe than shipping or trucking the same volume, and the Leftist insisted on a real sacrifice for the sake of a symbolic propitiation to Mother Gaia. But blocking the pipeline was increasing the risk to the environment in the name of decreasing it.

Gun-control is likewise a symbolic issue. Factual studies showing that more gun ownership decreases gun violence is neither answered, refuted, or even noticed by Leftists, except to sneer. The real world is not their concern. To voodoo doctors, the doll is a real as a man. To Leftists, symbolic gestures count because they show one’s inner enlightenment: the fact that the gesture is counterproductive is not even an issue for them.

This is where the stereotype of women being illogical and impractical arose. They are not, in fact, illogical, but it is feminine logic, which puts feelings above fact, and moods above matter. Any bad side effects resulting from the counterproductive policies can be cleaned up by the men.

Long past time for the masculine mind to return to political discourse. Long past time for self-destructive and self-defeating policies and laws to be cast aside, and for the government to do those things governments needs must do, instead of making symbolic gestures whose results are the opposite of what is allegedly intended.

And, no, I am not sick of winning yet. Trump is getting to work much more swiftly than I would have believed possible. It is almost like he is not a politician who makes promises to get elected. It is almost like he is a businessman who makes a contract for a job and gets to work on the job immediately.

The application here is that both Booker and Anonymous are doing actions directly counterproductive of their stated goals, and in both cases, the actions are entirely symbolic, having no impact in the real world.
