The inimitable and appreciated James Strong pointed out about smart-arsery some days back and well done.
I said I’d post something from Mark Dice:
I pointed out that smart-arsery was the end product of cynicism but should have added – cynicism borne out over a long period of time. It is, as mentioned, frustration.
Take, for example, this pair who got married, already planning tours of the world.
Now, they will be meeting and greeting the general populace and of course influencing them, especially if young, so they need to be politically neutral.
But they are not neutral. They are rabid SJWs. Charles started all this – his mother did not regurgitate all this PC claptrap in her active years but has now openly endorsed feminism and thus sided with one half of her kingdom … and not the conservative half.
There are may things you can say about the Queen, mostly true, but this is a new, open endorsement of the global elite. Yes yes, we know she’s part of it but at least it was kept neutral in public eyes. And yes we could argue that it’s better now out in the open where the public can at least see what the royals are up to behind the scenes [see Missing Children post].
The reasons I’m so down on this Meghan are manyfold, the dress being but one tiny part of it but the biggest reason must surely be her palace approved role in pushing a twisted and destructive notion of womanhood on women susceptible to entitlement and victimhood, when so many women themselves [post passim here] have exploded this feminism and it’s never an issue alone, is it?
The things they’re spreading are not only false but they’re destructive for society or in biblical terms – evil:
This is the sort of evil, with real victims of a defenceless kind, which Hal and Megs are preparing to go round the world, trading on their young royal wedding goodwill, and pushing.
And that is what is frustrating and that is why the deep cynicism and anger, and that is why the “smart-arsed” comments. It’s only “smartarsed” in the eyes of someone who does not share our concerns over these things.
To someone who does share them, it is grim humour [I daren’t say black humour] because what else is left after dismay?
Now, back to Megs – if you needed any more accurate testimonial to her character, albeit in a seemingly frivolous way, it was that bee which stung/pestered Harry yesterday and which the MSM lapped up. Not one question about her reaction, was there?
What would you do, were it your partner?
I’m accused here of being “malicious”, “smart-arsed” and all sorts but my immediate reaction towards my spouse would be concern for her wellbeing – bee stings are nasty. And what did Megs do? Go into a fit of the giggles – that is the mentality which so many have now commented on – I am certainly not alone in this – not to be “malicious” but to point out that here is a bad ‘un.
And finally, what is the latest on this “bad ‘un”?
I began blogging way back when, as one of the few pointing out about the global elite I termed Them in those days and was castigated, dismissed and ignored for it. Tinfoil hats were mentioned.
Not now – events have caught up. [Incidentally, look at fellow blogger Sackerson’s url.]
I’m saying this about Megs – she is their creature through and through, while Harry comes across as a bit of an immature fool.
Can’t I just have a little “compassion and heart” to let them have their wedding day of adoration without snide remarks?
Can’t I just have a little “compassion and heart” to let the jihadis groom and gang rape without snide remarks?
