Let Slip the Dogs of Truth

So, it turns out that Harvey Weinstein, powerful indie producer (for a while) and Academy-award magnet, is, well…slime.

“Three women—among them (actress Asia) Argento and a former aspiring actress named Lucia Evans—(said) that Weinstein raped them, allegations that include Weinstein forcibly performing or receiving oral sex and forcing vaginal sex.”  Yeah, it’s gross and awful, so I’ll try to keep this as unvomitious as I can.

To no one’s surprise…people inside and out of Hollywood knew.  “Roughly two dozen former assistants and young actresses have said the powerful and widely feared producer routinely asked them to his hotel room under the pretense of talking about roles or work, and then solicited massages while he was naked or wearing a bathrobe, or sexually forced himself on them.”

Unpacking Protest Privilege

No one must stand for the anthem. Or salute the flag. Or put hand over heart. Some people consider those respectful actions.

If somebody wants to make a statement, so be it, because, you know, there’s that wacky First Amendment that protects peacefully dissent.

(Hey, can we go all Antifa and make disrespecting the flag “Hate Speech?”

If we do that, we’ll get all kinds of support from our betters, since Hate Speech is banned in the First Amendment…I jest, I jest…)

The Elimination Process

By the way, there’s mass-shooting you haven’t heard about.  A Sudanese immigrant went into a church and shot seven people, before one of the ushers (who had a permit for his own weapon) stopped the attempted massacre. Strangely, it’s not leading the 24-hour news cycle, nor is it fodder for the spiritual leaders of our time (Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel were too busy helping Chuck Schummer propagandize about the need for pre-socialized medicine to address it).   But in case you were asking yourself, “Hey, I heard that Gunz are Teh Badz.  Why aren’t my leading moral lights telling me about this outrage?”, allow me to go through the Elimination Process that the good folks at Pravda Central undertake on your behalf to make sure you are never confronted with unsettling and unapproved news. The Elimination Process, straight from the super-secret JournoList handbook, is revealed here for the first time(the contents will surprise no one who has actually been paying attention).

Checklist for Reporting a Mass Shooting:

1) Race of Mass Shooter: a. White?

     If yes, immediately decry gun culture and easy access to weapons in the United States, while repeating the race of the Shooter

The Infants’ Crusade

Welcome, Instapundit readers.  This is a mirror from my site, roymgriffis.com, which was wiped out in the devoutly-to-be-wished-for Instalanche.

Once more, the national press is suddenly acknowledging what the wretched conservative scum have been saying for a while.  Antifa is a violent criminal organization.  

The Media mandarins can’t actually come out and say conservatives are right, of course, because conservatives are never correct about anything.

However, note that in the Politico story linked above, the violence is ultimately the fault of Trump supporters.

Bringing the Fire

Volume Two of The Lonesome George Chronicles

The battle for America rages deep in the heart of Texas and from sea to shining sea, as citizens from all walks of life fight against both the invaders and the collaborators in Bringing the Fire. 

Familiar characters return, including reluctant freedom fighter Whistler, the vengeance-driven Molly Ivins, and George W. Bush, who is trapped in the darkness of a protected bunker as communications with the outside slowly fail.  Determined to serve his country to the last, he undertakes a dangerous escape from the safety of the bunker.  Loyalties are tested and people die as the last elected President of the United States races to save what is left of America.

The First Casualty

Welcome, Instapundit readers.  This is a mirror from my site, roymgriffis.com, which was wiped out in the devoutly-to-be-wished-for Instalanche.

(Note:  this is the original English version of an Op-Ed piece I was asked to write for Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger on what the election means for the United States)

Trump won.

That surprised not only the Hillary faithful, but a lot of conservatives as well, including me.  Because, frankly, most of us (including the candidate herself) figured the end of this movie had already been written.

Why Trump?

This seems to be the question a lot of perplexed Europeans are asking of Americans:  “Why in the world would you vote for Trump?”

Before we begin, google the term “JournoList” and the name “Jonathan Gruber.”  I’ll wait.

Quickly, you’ll discover that JournoList was a private email list made up of a number of writers and reporters for major news organizations in the United States.  In 2008, this private email list of the people who craft and create the news presented to Americans declared themselves the “unofficial Barack Obama election committee.”

Make a dent in left-dominated culture – nominate “right” novels for publication!

As RWR readers know, our Prince of White Bread is a published fiction author. Needless to say, it’s a pleasure to read his work because it’s written from a world view to which we can relate. In a Roy Griffis novel, the sky is blue, grass is green, Conservatives aren’t evil, Progressives suck, and the world makes sense. And also, no sucker punches. Ah, readerly bliss!

As RWR readers also know, Andrew Breitbart famously pointed out that politics are downstream from culture. We on the Right clamor for more positive entertainment options, not only for our own pleasure, but because of pop culture’s potential power to sway public opinion away from somehow looking upon Progressive (Communist-Marxist-Maoist-Stalinist) Fascism favorably. America has very little time left if it is to be saved.

It’s for the Children

Hollywood comes up with awesome new education initiative. http://goo.gl/PrWqEV And it’s airing today, September 11! You know they’re doing it for the children, even if seems weirdly inappropriate, like they’re trying to push 9/11 out of public consciousness.

Hollywood would never do that, though. I mean, they made a mini-series out of “The Road to 9/11” that dared to criticize the Clintons. Of course the critically acclaimed “Road to 9/11” has never been released on DVD, but that’s probably a coincidence.

It was clearly more important to use precious plastic disks for the collector’s edition of “Golden Girls,” a vital cultural touchstone. Because Hollywood and the Left are all about speaking Truth to Power! (Liberal rapists like Bill Clinton, Roman Polanski excepted)

Writing is About Story, Not Race

“It’s not their fault,” her cousin Jonny countered. He was leaning against her cousin Ray, but she couldn’t tell if he was intoxicated or too upset to stand. Probably both; he shoved away from their cousin to fall at her feet, nearly topping Masuto and Mikio. He clasped her knees, sobbing. ”It’s my fault! The whole plank thing was my idea. I almost killed your future husband!”
