Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Patton Oswald just sicced his two million or so followers on some Canadian lady who wrote him an incredibly heartless tweet. I can’t take seriously the people who only get fired up every four years for a candidate that does not have an even remote chance of winning. He’s a fundie creationist type. She used to have a great twitter account to follow, too. Benevolent sexism is still sexism. And thanks, Violet!! Fuck dead Pakistanis just as much as dead Iraqis or Afghanis. I don’t know if we have an “official” stance, but I can tell you my personal stance at this point. Simple as that. It’s bad, and I don’t like that it’s normal for me, but it is. And people wonder why the world is crumbling. Twitter Tags jen kirkman, bernie sanders, russia, parody, twitter Additional References Twitter About. But they’re not so far to the left that they will rally behind an ideologically pure progressive candidate. @Repentantphonebooth: They’re a bit like the people who thought Stalin was too lax in the forced collectivizations and wanted the USSR to get more serious about violently spreading revolution to other countries. What I said was that, on a visceral, desensitized, 9/11 happened before I had most of my permanent teeth level, drones in Pakistan don’t phase me. o.O. Unless it is what she means, in which case she can have a seat, You know, like JK really meant the Vince Foster thing and not lol dead Afghanis, I could not possibly care what she meant. So are you going to respond to the point that others have made about you sizing the symbol “female” in order to shame someone when you are yourself using it in a bigoted manner? There is no scientific evidence that organic food is healthier than non-organic food and higher cost would be a food security issue. You sounded so reasonable until you hit the “unhinged-Muslim-hating-racist-Donald-Trump” macro. ©
In Milan Kundera’s The Joke, set in Communist Czechoslovakia in the 1950s, a young Czech intellectual and Communist Party member is tossed from the party and sent to work in the mines after he jokingly writes “long live Trotsky” on a postcard. I suggest substitution with cynical. Local politics and midterm elections are so much more important for advancing progressivism. These are people who, in many instances, consider themselves progressives, radicals, anarchists, “revolutionaries.” These are, in more than a few cases, proud supporters of Jill Stein, a woman whose presence in the race makes it all that much harder to defeat the unhinged Muslim-hating racist Donald Trump. In a world of Netflix specials and podcasts and Twitter, why would a stand-up comedian still put out an old-fashioned comedy album? That’s bad, whether or not the former causes the latter, She’s addressing in a ham-handed way the involvement of corporations in the healthcare industry, She’s running for President. She’s a random asshole who said a random asshole thing. Liberty is all but dead. If you think that being a feminist means all women should be immune to criticism, then you’re not one. Unfortunately, many of those who encountered Kirkman’s Tweet on Twitter — a large number of whom seem to be former Bernie Sanders supporters who’ve gone over the Green Party’s Jill Stein — have kind of missed the point just a little, misreading it as some sort of creepy celebration of drones murdering children in Afghanistan, or something. Hope that helps!! You never did flesh out “imply” and until you do you are useless to me. wow. Yeah, most of these anti-Hillary ideological purity obsessed people that have come out of the woodwork recently seem much more concerned with feeling right than with any actual political or policy goals. In today’s anti-intellectual environment, anything that causes “uneasy feelings” is attempted to be suppressed. Where exactly does feminism say women shouldn’t be criticised? Comedian Jen Kirkman is not quitting Twitter, but not not quitting Twitter, either, after tweeting a questionable joke about Hillary Clinton. We also get your email address to automatically create an account for you in our website. Liberals don’t have a real sense of humor. The lady who wrote the rotten tweet to oswald has made her personal account private, but the replies to the screenshot are predictably awful and some of her personal information is available. Take note of the doubtful, introspective tone of the comment you obviously didn’t comprehend. Jaya Saxena is a lifestyle writer and editor whose work focuses primarily on women's issues and web culture. I found this out after reading the following op-ed: Little did we know, the media was actually pulling its punches. I shared to mock (especially in contrast with what we’re seeing here and in the anti-Semitic and misognist memes against Clinton seen in other WHTM posts), not praise. Sad, but not surprised. It's not about canceling comedians or ruining clubs lives. Either way, I’m about 99.9% sure that it was a sarcastic comment. Orac’s in-depth analysis of Jill Stein’s antivaccine dog whistles is here and it is worth a read. Lauren Daley can be reached at email@example.com . So who wouldn’t be skeptical? Most of the actual leftists who got angry at the tweet seemed too feel that it was a reference to Hillary’s foreign policies killing people in other countries and not to the right-wing conspiracy theories like Vince Foster. I can’t even tell if the “liberals are humorless” posts are referencing the liberals who threatened Kirkman for not liking her jokes or if they’re saying we’re humorless because we don’t think the misogyny directed at her is funny. That’s… Still a sense of humour, dude. The Left is, in fact, in denial about the amount of hate which exists in it’s ranks. Because when I read it, I immediately assumed it was poking fun at the “the Clintons murdered Vince Foster” types. A+ feminism. Folks “progressively” making those twitter threats, with those words, and simultaneously not getting the (older than the Internet) joke liberals have been making* since Newt Gingrich was on his first wife? Aside from Ray and Hartzell, Mahoney was oftentimes associated with stand-up comedian Jen Kirkman (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Chelsea Lately) as the two were married from 2009 to 2011. The Daily Dot has reached out to Kirkman about the joke, but has not heard back as of this posting. Now she’s back with another, Jen Kirkman: Just Keep Livin’?, which is available now on the streaming service. Red Pill romancer plans to pull the birds with a fake British accent, 26 creepy, threatening or otherwise completely inappropriate vintage Valentine’s Day cards, Some of the Capitol attackers have histories of abuse against women? Why? Jen Kirkman is a lefty sort of comic. A lot of “progressive” people online can be a little out of touch with reality and fall into what’s historically been considered “ultraleft” in communist circles. @kettle And yes, that last dude is using a photo of a young Josef Stalin as his avatar. Feb 10. Ya know, actual crimes. I can see where if someone were younger (or hadn’t been following the “controversies” for the last couple of decades) and had heard a lot of talk about Hillary being a hawk, they might interpret it that way and assume it was a comment about the recent military actions abroad. ', Video shows man calling police on Black TikToker for no apparent reason, Homeless Black man killed by cop after being stopped for jaywalking, new video shows, Video shows moment passengers broke out in applause for pilot who landed Boeing 777 safely, Man allegedly pushes pregnant wife off cliff after taking selfies. It's about making people who book rapists have to put up with some uncomfortable feedback of their business decisions. If so, oops, sorry, hugs, love you! We’re good, man. Stinky, crazy, loud-mouthed losers, needed to get in line, sit down and shut up, immediately. In a display of shameless schadenfreude, the media gleefully mocked Sanders supporters for being emotionally weak and cognitively damaged. I don’t blame Condi Rice for the Iraq war. Of course, this is Paste Magazine, which also had a recent piece on why Clinton can’t be trusted to appoint a better Supreme Court nominee than Trump (mostly due to her VP Kaine and because of Citizens United: “Equally distressing to this half-measure talk is the reality that without the controversial 2010 court ruling there would be no Hillary Clinton nomination.”). If you don’t believe me, go look at the accounts of the people whose Tweets I quoted above, or go directly to @JenKirkman’s mentions now, where you can find hundreds if not thousands more Tweets like this. JEN KIRKMAN retweeted. After Kirkman noted that she would be handing the operation of her Twitter account to someone else because she was tired of reading all the death threats, some of her Twitter, er, critics, did little victory dances of sorts. If Stein can’t figure that out, she’s too dumb to be in politics. She also says she’s received death threats and other abuse. — JEN KIRKMAN (@JenKirkman) September 21, 2020. It’s normal. ‘Vote Stein, the candidate for the sociopathic troll!’. If I may suggest a moment of honest reflection here…. Once Hillary won the nomination and Vermont senator graciously and enthusiastically endorsed her, the gloves really came off. 6h. Of course death threats and harassment are indefensible, but it’s dishonest to suggest that Kirkman was 100% right and her only critics are misogynistic bros. I’ll grant you that. Ted Cruz. wait, he just called them all off. Jen talks about the latest gender reveal party that ended in tragedy, idiots on Twitter, Adam Carolla is afraid of bracelets, a teenaged op-ed in The NY Times that is enraging, the story of Dutch resistance fighter teenaged girls who killed Nazis in the woods, and Jen talks about how she loved not having an allowance as a kid. You know, like JK really meant the Vince Foster thing and not lol dead Afghanis. I love your username…so random. Not only do I not like any of those things, I don’t believe Hillary’s actions lead to those things. Also, a big part of feminism is that women aren’t perfect – they shouldn’t be hated or discriminated against because of their gender, but they shouldn’t be shielded, either. But I never see it. What are you hoping for, that someone is going to feel sorry for bernie supporters? I sometimes make “Hillary personally ran Vince over with a train” comments to people I know and who also know that these conspiracies are stupid. The people bombarding Kirkman with threats and abuse aren’t Trump fans. That strikes me as something of an irony. So, somebody’s failed Feminism 101 here, but it ain’t David. Unhinged, very possibly, but the rest of it is lazy. The world’s population was 4,003,448,151 and there were an estimated 121,673,775 babies born throughout the world in 1974, Richard Nixon (Republican) was the president of the United States, and the number one song on Billboard 100 was "(You're) Having My Baby" by Paul Anka with Odia Coates. I would be surprised, except I read the Daily KOS article that I’m linking earlier today. In most countries, people trust their regulatory agencies and have very high rates of vaccination through voluntary programs. years ago and not going forward with it. IT IS SO MUCH SIMPLER AND WAY MORE FUN (it's punk rock!!!) Saying a shitty thing is shitty, and bringing a dead loved one into a discussion is low, but is it twitter hordes low? Before we look at what happened after she posted this Tweet (which has now been deleted), let me just say a couple of things about the Tweet itself. However, Oswald took a screenshot, which is now on his twitter wall. It is just one of many which show there is some serious, SERIOUS hatred and violence infused rhetoric on the Left. The issue is the entire antivaxx stance is based on a known medical fraud perpetrated by Andrew Wakefield: Jen Kirkman criticized Jezebel both on Twitter and to other outlets, implying that we had somehow spearheaded a campaign against her in order to … The next time your read or hear something talking about all the “hatred” and “vitriol” coming from the right, keep this little incident in mind. You know, the Russian dictator whose actual non-fictional not-a-joke STALIN BODY COUNT added up to something close to 20 million. So y’know, most of the people of the commenting here are basically factually wrong. @repentantphonebooth: Well, some folks just have more energy! It’s a name with a story, but for another day……. A polished hour that finds Kirkman waxing rhapsodic on everything from meditation to abortion, Just Keep Livin’? Still, don’t threaten her. And instead of stopping for a second to ask themselves, “wait, is this comedian lady who does those hilarious yet disarmingly earnest segments on Drunk History really mocking or even advocating the murder of children, why would she do that, that can’t be right” many of these people decided to advocate the murder of her.
