Just like you can like "Blurred Lines" by that one hit wonder slime bag Robin Thicke and still be a feminist
Just like you can like lots of horrible TV shows, sexist music, sexist movies, and you can admire individuals who, maybe they're not the best at feminism, or even being respectful to women, but can still be kickass world leaders, one of the only able to hold the US imperialistic enterprise at bay
It must mean "I'm a hundred percent!" this or that
But I MUST support female politicians like Madelaine Albright, even though she's okay with lots of people dying???
What are the hidden political implications of my aesthetic decisions?
I must be alt right and totally anti-feminist, because neoliberal feminists OWN that narrative, and THEY get to decide who's feminist
How dare I???
Although, truth be told, I do find it offensive that someone would like "Blurred Lines": it's a horrible song and a seriously cringeworthy video
But the moral of my story resides IN THIS garbage:
Here is ANOTHER cringeworthy video
They should call themselves "Neoliberal Cunts", instead of the P-word Riot
This is def kosher-approved
I don't think I can express the incredible amount of contempt I hold for this band of phony, misguided, teenage-esque rebellion, performed in the service of neoliberalism
You would think this video is a parody of a pseudo-political group, to make fun of that group, but no, it's a real video by a pseudo-political group about themselves
That's how awful they are
It's almost like hollywood created this group artificially and wrote them some tuneless filler songs to set it afloat, or they were a band created for a movie or tv show
They're enlisted members of US hegemonic propaganda
They even acted in an epsiode of House of Cards ( a horrifically propaganda-driven show) calling out the show's version of Putin
Putin and Russia are the only entities in the world who are standing up to the bullying of the US and Israel, and they are backing up all the other little countries like the Phillipines and Syria who are trying to stand up to them. The world is slowly but inexorably rising from the ashes of US imperialism, it is turning away from using the dollar and being lorded over and bullied by the West, and you P---- Riot, are being used, ( i don't know if you are too dumb to realize what is happening or you don't care) in the effort to undermine this movement of rebellion, this TRUE movement of rebellion
Cause you're not rebels
oh my god, if you're even THAT
This woman is a fucking narcissist
I thought the band had a ton of members, but she's the only one visible
The song is awful, and its' lyrics trite, predictable, condescending, naive, and boring
(And YES, mainstream evil fascist society DEFINITELY thinks you're a "fat pig"; what a fucking $%#@^$)
oh no! too small tits! oh NO!!!! oh no!!!! i'm being repressed!
Come and see the violence inherent in the system
i'd a been REALLY IMpressed if you had had AN ACTUAL FAT WOMAN in this video
(okay SOMEWHAT, but who am i kidding?)
Instead you had an obviously very attractive narcissistic idiot prancing around half naked in the tradition of the same old same old mainstream mostly naked woman aesthetic of neoliberal music artists and actresses like madonna and chloe sevigny who have taken on collaborating with this band as a pet project in a severely deluded and elitist attempt at "political activism"
Cops. And airport police. And grabbing your crotch; you sure know how to pronounce FASCIST
Let's throw all those tropes together into one awful generic tacky naive stew: a sexy girl, a mediocre song and lyrics, and hold up your middle finger and say fuck A LOT ( that'll show'em, it always does)!!!
( I don't even undertand the crotch grabbing, except that it's a holdover from Madonna - do you want him to do that? I mean, I promote the right of people to express their sexuality as they please, and if you want someone to grab you by the p-----, all power to you, but it seems odd to make a video that condemns a man for doing something you are now doing to yourself but you know what, I don't really care, I never have)
Madonna is like the poster woman for phony celebrity political outrage since the eighties, and the model for P----- Riot. Starting with her "searing" criticisms of an already on-the-outs and safe-to-crticize Catholic Church, she loves to speak out on subjects that are not controversial AT ALL. In a blatant show of solidarity with the neoliberal anti-Russian movement, she declared in 2015 she would never perform in Russia again, because "they are so hard on gays" People didn't realize that she operates two fitness centers there, one in Moscow, and didn't think it appropriate to shut down her businesses in "protest" https://www.rt.com/op-ed/313147-madonna-homosexuality-russia-gay/
Yes it is true: this video shows a bit of good 'ol "benevolent sexism", and Putin is a typical guy, with the same almost exclusively visual appreciation of women exhibited by "typical guys" the world OVER. But International Women's Day has been routinely ignored in the US until this year, when McDonald's decided to participate and turn its logo upside down, and we were all simultaneously liberated from its low wages and subsidization by the government in the form of welfare and food stamps for its employees
Groups and feminists in the vein of P----Riot represent the most nefarious, demented identity politics that eschew and work to undermine real movements calling out the impact of our current economic system on REAL PEOPLE and the hegemonic power struggle between the US and Israel vs the rest of the world
Yes, Putin IS a smarmy ass sexist ( I even remember he and an aide remarking to Megan Kelly how they just wanted to look at her because she is so attractive prior to an interview, which is uber unnerving), but geopolitically, he is a BAD ASS. A ton of other men in politics are sexist, and NOT BADASS; Bill Clinton would be an example, but neoliberal feminists all made excuses for him, and he did nothing to help the world.
The day Putin starts forcing women to be housewives, if he ever does, I'll be in the struggle against him, but I have a sneaking suspicion I won't be seeing his current naysayers there
The music and videos and artistic products of neoliberal feminism don't really criticize anything, or enlighten anyone; they're just propaganda and virtue-signaling to other idiots unwittingly aiding the American project
Pumpy Malheusen is very excited about her two new simultaneous musical projects, "The P-Word Riot" and "Makuchi Wombat"
