Thanksgivingmanship, Reposted

Reposted Yet Again. This is once again a thing, as progressives talk up how they're going to inflict their lunacies on the rest of their families on a day that is dedicated to gratitude, not grievance.






Some other people just turned it into Thanksgrivance Day, like Joy Reid:



Frequent James Comey marionette Ben Wittes is also in the mood for pills and razor blades:



He's one X chromosome and 30 years away from chopping off one side of his hair and dying the rest of it blue.

Below, the repost on how to deal with these deeply damaged bits of once-human debris:

Thanksgivingship: How To Survive Your Dull-Witted Progressive Adultchildren Relatives Who've Been Reading Vox and Buzzfeed Articles About How to Survive You

Oxford Don Stephen Potter introduced the world to the principles of Gamesmanship [don't comment on old posts, the system will ban you] the way to win at games by resort to cheap ploys which were very close to cheating without being technically cheating. He later expanded his inquiries into the general field of "Lifemanship," the discipline of embracing life in a dickish and hostile spirit, sabotaging social rivals without quite breaching social etiquette.

Given that the progressive elder-children-yet-not-quite-adults you'll be encountering this Thanksgiving (who I will henceforth refer to as "grownchildren") will be armed to the teeth with Vox explainers and Obamacare propaganda, I herewith humbly submit these first sketches of a new branch of Lifemanship I call "Thankgivingmanship," which I define as the gentle art of insulting the stupid without alerting them to the fact that they've been insulted at all.

It is the goal of the dedicated Thanksgivingman, then, to achieve the sublime art of giving offense without offense being taken.

My basic strategy is thus: It would be as rude of you as it is rude of your cretinous grownchildren kin to allow a Thanksgiving dinner into a stupid game of Rachel Maddow Talking Points and their rebuttals.

So, rather than confront the unemployed idiots who will be assailing you, I propose instead to superficially avoid conflict and engagement on their dummy mouthflappings, and appear instead to agree with them.

But -- and here is the point -- a skilled Thanksgivingman will only appear to agree with the grownchildren to feeble intellects, such as those possessed by the grownchildren themselves. Instead of disagreeing with them -- which will cause argument and anger -- you will instead claim to agree with them, while in fact contradicting them, subverting them, of baffling them with statements that nearly, but do not quite, make sense.

Our definitions and mission now established, we turn to the first of our three primary Thanksgivingmanship gambits:

The Neutral or Nonsensical Statement Disguised as Agreement.Progressives do not process language the same way human beings do; they chiefly adduce meaning from tone and body language, like dogs.

This means that you can say many things which are either irrelevant, nonsensical, or otherwise not in agreement with the progressive subcreatures you're temporarily amidst so long as you deliver your words with a warm smile and a lot of nodding.

You may also use uptalk to express an insincere solidarity. As with dogs and babies, progressives find artificially high-pitched vocal tones to be soothing and possibly a prelude to Walkies and Snackies.

Whenever a progressive grownchild says something stupid and ignorant, which will be always, do not engage on the merits. Progressive grownchildren will become highly emotional and agitated at the slightest show of disagreement, and may wet the floor or claw at the furniture.

Instead, say something which is either neutral or nonsensical (which successfully communicates your true beliefs to other real human beings capable of deciphering obvious meaning) while deploying smiling, nodding, and uptalk to falsely convey agreement with to the more-stunted intellect of the grownchild.

For example, if a progressive grownchild says, "Rachel Maddow is just so amazing," you can respond by nodding and saying "Absolutely, Rachel Maddow is without doubt a mammal." (Or: "A mammal...?")

Possible responses to common grownchild mouthchatter include:

"Well I see that the 'Faux Noise Machice' has gotten everyone riled up about so-called 'terrorism' again."

"Doubtless! Terrorists only win when allow them to make us afraid, or dead." (Or: "Afraid, or dead...?")

"Can't people see that stupid cons are doing Just What ISIS Wants us to do?"

"It's so obvious-- the attacks in Paris weren't just an attack on human lives. They were an attack on our shared human capacity to be alive." ("To be alive, and stuff...?")

This is a very simple one, which can be deployed in a variety of contexts:

"None of this is Obama's fault -- he's doing the best he can to keep America out of another War of Choice."

"Boy that Obama-- he is really something, isn't he?"

As the evening wears on, and you are preparing to depart, you may become somewhat more blatant in your stealth insults, like so:

"I just read an explainer about this on Vox."

"Today's world is so remarkable! When I was young, we had to read books and derive our own thinking for ourselves. What a time to be alive, when sounding vaguely informed is no longer a luxury of the intellectual, but a cheaply assembled ware available to those of more common intellect!"

Fake Statistics. It was my old friend Boston Irish who alerted me to this ticklish little trope, when he observed that no matter how absurd the statistic you proposed to a progressive, if that statistic seemed to call attention to whatever bugaboos xhe was excited about, xhe would respond with a gushing "I know, right?!"

He demonstrated this to me at a party by interrupting a couple of liberals talking, and announcing to them:

"You know, based on current statistics, in ten years, the entire state of California will be homeless."

"Right! I know!" came the response.

By the way, that is not schtick. That is not a joke written for this blogpost. I was really there, he really said that, that really happened.

After having secured the agreement to his obviously-crank "statistics," he turned to me with a slightly arched eyebrow and sipped his beer in quiet triumph.

This propensity of grownchildren to agree to whatever fantastical "studies" and "statistics" you propose to them can be exploited for much private merriment at the holidays.

Other gambits include:

* "You know, the average family of four pays more in ATM fees to the Big Banksters than they spend on rent."

* "By the year 2030, global warming predicts that the entire North American landmass will be flooded by seawater and wolves."

* "99.4% of the world's wealth is controlled by six-tenths of a single person."

* "More people are killed every year by shooting accidentally shooting themselves than who died in all the wars in the world combined, except for the Korean War."

You need to throw that "Except for the Korean War" in at the end because the claim, on its face, is too preposterous, so you deduct out Korean War deaths to bring it into the real of the plausible. (Plausible, that is, for progressive grownchildren.) It makes like you've done the math and just have to make this one little adjustment to get the numbers to work.

You may follow Boston Irish's trope of the obviously-crank "liberal study" claim, or you can try your hand at claims which are simply baffling nonsense:

* "Studies have proven that if you have a gun in your house, you are more in danger of being struck by lightning than being bitten by a rattlesnake. Think about it."

A minor variation of the Fake Statistic ploy is the Fake Profundity gambit, in which you propose some ludicrous "deep thought" which derives not from social science, but from your own personal philosophical inquiry.

For example, this one is best delivered with chin uplifted, Obama-style, and a metaphysical glaze of the eye:

* "For what is it that gives the terrorists power -- their weapons, or our primitive, irrational fear that they will kill us with their weapons?"

It is generally a useful practice to prefix such bits of nonsense with faux-biblical language, such as "For what..." or "Lo" and "Thus and so."

Fake Quotes. Progressives love fake quotes -- they just love dressing up whatever passes for this week's SJW Conventional Wisdom and attributing it to some historic figure.

Generally, these historic figures are very well known, because progressives don't know any historic figures except the very well known. Thomas Jefferson is always a popular choice. For "bad sounding quotes," Hitler is preferred. Napoleon and Marcus Aurelius may be deployed as well, but be prepared for some confused looks as to who it is you're talking about.

Offering a ridiculous quote can bring you and any other lively minds at the table great amusement. Your target will probably not notice the quote is fake, because he is an imbecile, and also because you'll have a serene, self-satisfied smile on your face as you say it, which he will read as "A Fellow Progressive in Discursive Mode."

This minor camouflage will permit you to smuggle huge amounts of nonsense in the guise of Wisdom of the Ancients.

Feel free to subvert your noddingsmiles with messages that are blatantly mottos of the NRA, if only the grownchild could understand simple words, which they cannot.

For example:

"Wasn't it Mahatma Gandhi who said, 'It is not necessarily the first man to shoot who wins the battle, but it is always the last man shooting who wins the day'?"

"As Gertrude Stein said" -- and I should say here that this gambit works best when you pronounce this name, for no particular reason, in an outrageous German accent, as Gaertruude Schteinn.

So, let's begin again: "As Gaertruude Schteinn observed, 'The man who is slowest to arm himself is quickest to savor the bounties of Heaven.'"

Another gambit is to offer up the following quotes, which are applicable in a wide range of situations.

"I forget which scientist said it, maybe Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but it's worth repeating: 'Wars of religion always make me laugh because basically you're fighting over who has the best imaginary friend.'"

Or:

"A great philosopher, Gaertruud Von Schteinn, once said, 'Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true'?"

You will get big nods for these Aphorisms of the Sages. You yourself can take pleasure in the knowledge that both quotes are from the movie Point Break, delivered by Johnny Utah (Keanu Reaves) and Bodhi (Patrick Swayze), respectively.

If you get any verbal expressions of agreement, a "hear-hear" or an "amen," you can extend the joke by saying, "In the words of the spiritual master Boddhisatva, 'You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be its master...?" or "Six seconds and we're going to be meat waffles.'"

Make this trope your own. Have fun with it. If you want to claim that it was Niccolo Machiavelli who first advised, "Sweep the leg, Johnny," go with it, but try to get your more subtle Fake Quotes in before "going big" like that.

A Final Word. At some point, even an experienced Thanksgivingman will go too far, and give his game away. At that point, there will be sulks and silences, and the Thanksgivingman will have actually failed at his goal, which is to give offense without offense being taken.

In such straits, the Thanksgivingman, in order to be the polite person he wishes to be, will have to apologize -- it is the verminous grownchildren who have come to bicker and strife, after all, not the well-mannered Thankgivingman.

However, for the zealous Thanksgivingman, even an apology can be exploited for further Thanksgivingmanship points.

For example, if the childanimal you are speaking with declares:

"You're micro-aggressing me."

...then be sure to respond,

"Ah, then please sincerely accept my most micro apologies."

6 (nearly willowed) OT tech question:

I'm planning on getting a ps4 this weekend
(gamestop is running the same deal as everyone else knocking the price
down to $199 which is frankly where consoles ought to be, but also
giving out $50 gift cards according to the ad I got Monday). Does anyone
have an opinion on the $10 stand so you can set it on it's side?

It
obviously takes less shelf space that way, and I'm hoping that puts the
vents far enough from the supporting surface to discourage dust
accumulation, but I wonder about the physics/engineering of rotating the
disc at that angle, i.e. if I'm taking a risk of added wear and tear
from the position?

Hmmm, I thought that the Pilgrims came here because the European elites kept dictating to them how to live their lives, and they got fed up. Seems like we are keeping the tradition of proper defiance alive and well just fine!

76 >>Actually... isn't the story that they tried to do everything as a community... basic collectivism... and they almost starved?

>>Then went individualist, and began to prosper.... and THEN had Thanksgiving?

Actually, a good many of them died the first year because of disease and the rest of them likely would have starved had some of the local Indians not shown them how to plant corn and fish.

The first Thanksgiving was really more of a traditional European thanks for the bounty of the crops. Some of the local Indians who had helped them were invited and the story was born.

The colony broke down because many of the Pilgrims chaffed at the collectivist rules and lack of the same religious freedom that caused them to leave England in the first place.

Lots of myths about the pilgrims and Thanksgiving including Plymouth Rock which was not the first place the pilgrims came ashore.

No one ever pulls that with us and if they did have the temerity to pull a "crap on your host's rug" commentary, they would be instantly 86'd with a comment to the effect you can have gratitude or a grievance, and if you continue engaging the latter you can take it with you out the door.

Well it was a combination of several things.
1) Many of them were not farmers, they were merchants, clerks, etc. So farming wasn't exactly well known to them
2) Moving to a new area you will not necessarily know what will grow or what the growing season is, etc.
3) they brought seeds and so forth, but a lot spoiled on the way, and they didn't know what was edible and what was not in the new world.

Awhile back he and his wife had done a interview about how they like to compost, and use fish emulsion on their vegetables. Lefties were making fun of them in the comments, I guess because organic gardening is good, but only if done by people with communist leanings. I'll never get this way of "thinking".

According to Of Plymouth Plantation they were mainly farmers. It sounds like the soil quality was very different from what they were used to though, Bradford described it as "exhausted" which seems odd unless it was very nutrient poor to begin with. They also weren't accustomed to maize as a food crop and kept trying the grains they were used to. Bradford said that after they allowed people to work their own plots, and trade any excess, they never starved again.

234 So how many families will be discussing sexual harassment this Thanksgiving? How many wives will be questioning their husbands about affairs with other women at the office? How many men will be questioning their wives about what sexual favors the wife had to perform to get her promotion?

It's going to make America Grate Again.

236 I have some libs in my family, but since the Walker recall (when they came close to beating me to death), we have avoided politics. I did not gloat after Walker won (although I really, really wanted to) and they didn't gloat after Obama was reelected.

Last year, they were too shell-shocked to say anything.

Your situation may be different, being closer to the coast. But all they sell in my area is 'chix' lobsters. Which are like six ounces of meat.

I refuse to support the sale of tiny little lobster. It almost seems criminal. Throw 'em back and give 'em a couple years to put some meat on.

243 You should sit in on some of the harassment training classes I do. Because it is. Even looking can be construed as harassment if it offends someone.

It just seems... excessively picky. Yeah I don't want to be hugged necessarily at work but that doesn't rise to the same level of awful as groping or wanking in front of someone, much less worse crimes.

I worked at a convenience store once and the manager who I knew from school kept giving me shoulder rubs while I was at the cash register. It wasn't some come-on, I think it was meant to be chummy, etc (trust me, she didn't like me that way at all). But I didn't like it, not because it was creepy but keep your hands off me while we're at work for crying out loud.

But what I didn't consider it to be was sexual harassment. Not worth reporting to the company, not anything to get upset about.

The thing with gin is, there's really no such thing as "premium" gin. One of the best gins around is the old standby (and Winston Churchill's favorite), Boodles.

Well, when you consider that the wilderness came right up to the sea in those days and so they had to clear that out to make fields and farms - and England and Holland's climate is more temperate, with a longer growing season than New England's, different soil - it could be that the plants, seeds they had brought with them didn't grow that well here.

286 If you want to drive these assholes crazy (and who doesn't) keep shifting the topic based, sort of, on what they said. Start with phrases like: "That reminds me of" or "You know, that brings to mind". Then launch into some esoteric minutiae about Lord of the Rings, Travels With Charley, or anything they are unlikely to have read. Make it something you care about and can expound on for hours. If they interrupt with another BS point, repeat the procedure with another outre matter.

The beauty of this is that there need be no actual connection between their words and your topic.

Of course, if they actually show up with Fucky Schumer's graphs and tables, you get to shove it up their ass after folding it so it is all sharp corners.

But the eyes glaze over even for the best of them, if the debt bomb and fiat currency comes up ... or Uranium One and hard drives wiped like with a cloth. Blissful ignorance is more fun.

302 My favorite is starting with "not a lot of people know this...." 60% of the time it works every time. Also add in the words "true fact" at the end. For example:

"Not a lot of people know this, but 86% of homeless people can't make their mortgage pavements. True fact."

"Not a lot of people know this, but Neal Degrasse Tyson once bit off a man's ear. True fact."

It really helps if you manage to slip in the word "stadistics".

"Stadistics say by the year 2050, over half the world's population will be pregnant if we don't supply some free birth control. True fact."

If they call you on mispronunciation, deny it vehemently. A really classy move is to accuse them of racism/sexism/classism.

"Hey, I may not always pronounce words correctly like people of your status, but at least I know what they MEAN. Unlike our presidents."
