The Doggy Position

Post by jakell » Thu Oct 26, 2017 10:38 am

It has been mused upon how SJW types represent the new 'Church Ladies', and police themselves and others into adopting a certain set of moral standards (I'm being generous with the word 'standards' as these turn out to be quite vague on closer examination).

Their preachyness could be said to represent the missionary position. It's often tempting to find equivalents on opposite sides and, in the same vein, I think I may have found one for White Nationalists:




ETA: 'Doggy' or 'Doggie'.... can't decide.

Who are the Hurt Cats?

Post by jakell » Mon Oct 30, 2017 12:35 pm

I've been talking elsewhere about an excessive focus on ugliness and how this affects our outlook and output (John Michael Greer: "What you contemplate is what you imitate"), I suppose this could include humourlessness too. I put the above in this section as it seems the best place for humour and here is something from the old place that seems worth preserving to me. It's a shame that it got firepitted for no apparent reason (except humourlessness maybe):
The juxtaposition of cats and dogs here is incidental (although it may have arisen out of my subconscious):
Who are the Hurt Cats? - Anti-Semitism and Cat Theory

As part of our ongoing campaign to transform General Discussion into worker-created freeform jazz Copy-Pasta collages about anti-Semitism and Anti-Fascism, I offer this as a sadhana... to our Inspiration and Holy Rule-Maker, Jeff. I offer my support and critical thinking skills by providing this critique of the deep historical and current connection of anti-Semitism to cats.
This important topic has generally been neglected in current thinking and I believe it is essential for us as a diverse anarcho/lefist community to confront this dialectic head-on and question:

Who are we in relation to Patriarchy, Whiteness and Cat Theory?

while not letting our confusion about what this actually means stop us from showing solidarity when called upon by felines to stand with them - and clearly not in a "standing over, sizist domination sense.

The importance of this has been shown by recent worrying moves on the Far Right.
The British National Cat Anarchist Party, filled with the "usual suspects", have begun a campaign of virulent propaganda using NAZI-affiliated cats.

Traditionally, catness has been used as a means of enacting 'power over' minorities through a deeply hateful use of "felinity" - a barely disguised 'codeword' for anti-Semitic filth. Consider the use of the cat here, the proximity and dependence of the "subservient lap-cat" to the world dominating source of evil - Dr Evil.

Image

In more recent times, consider the blatantly overt anti-Semitism shown in the film "Wag The Dog" where the producer tries to put forward a Calico Kitten - one patterned with a cultural diversity of white, black and brown - but is powerless to overrule the President who wants a 'White Kitten', a symbol that clearly, with a little analysis, is one of anti-Semitism issuing from global Christian Hegemony.




Finally, I would like to reference the article - my bold for emphasis

Are the Smurfs Anti-Semitic Misogynists?

http://forward.com/articles/139107/are- ... ts/? Image

Smurf Village is a socialist haven: a kibbutz of sorts. In the Smurfs’ collective, everybody seems to be a happy worker (with the exception of Grouchy Smurf). There is no alienation or exploitation, and the means of production seem to be in the hands of the workers. Religion, as befitting a world without exploitation, seems to be nonexistent. All the Smurfs look alike — white clothes and white pointy hats — and live in identical mushroom-shaped houses. The only exception is Papa Smurf, who wears a Marx-like white beard and is dressed in red.

Within this allegory, the evil wizard Gargamel represents the greedy capitalist. In case you think this is a little far-fetched, his main ambition is to capture the Smurfs to consume them or turn them into gold.

Likewise, his pet Azriel, who is literally a “fat cat,” is obsessed with ensnaring and devouring the little blue workers.

As I look at my screensaver of Jeff,

I hope this introduction to Cat Theory, which was written during my extremely busy time as a social justice activist, Mindlessness meditation instructor and Professor of Anti-Semitism Semiotics at Universidad de la Confusa, will serve as a call to feline solidarity and provide paws for thought.

Credit to Searcher08 for the original post, and it would be really nice to see this sort of humour surface again. I haven't included the (sarcastic) green here because that was contextual at the time, it made no difference to the sourpusses(sic) there either.
If Searcher objects to my reviving this (or omitting the green) then he can jolly well register here and tell me himself.

Going by the title, I actually thought this video would be a satirical 'Onion style' one (hence the use of this joke thread)



Turns out it's not, which sort of adds a darker humour . I wonder if the backlash will win him some extra support like Wild Smile suggests, it may get him the wrong sort of attention too, by which I mean real-life stuff, not online, then it wouldn't be funny anymore.

Are the makers unaware that the ending makes one do a massive double-take? It would probably be considered deceptive for her to darken her complexion with makeup, but that would hardly be more misleading than the lead-up to that point.

Perhaps Raymond Spencer could discover something in his genetic make-up that increases his status.

ETA: If the "aboriginal" claim were dropped, the Aussie advert could be re-jigged almost word for word but with references to white identity instead.. and then quickly flash Spencer (no relation to Richard I presume) up at the end.
