People Magazine called “amoral”

L.V. Anderson at Slate Magazine admonishes People Magazine for being “amoral.”

What did People Magazine do that was so horrible. Kill babies?

No, actually they are condemned for doing sort of the opposite, displaying 27 Photos of Ivanka Trump and Her Family That Are Way Too Cute.

Don’t they know that Trump is the next Hitler? After Hitler had millions of Jews gassed to death, would you run an article of cute photos of Hitler’s relatives?

* * *

Seriously, if Trump’s children continue to play a public role, they will be a great asset for Trump’s continued popularity. The proles love a good looking first family. They loved John F. Kennedy and Jackie. Jackie said “there will never be another Camelot,” but maybe a White House with frequent visits by Trump’s children could be the second Camelot. (Or the third Camelot if you count the one with King Arthur.)

  1. Slate magazine, aka #SlateSoWhite, is the perfect self-parodying culmination of libsoft hypocrisy and virtue-signaling.

    This article names all 63 of their staffers.

    They are uniformly Dem (a party that gets 33% of its votes from NAMs). That means 21 (1/3 of 63) staffers should be NAM. Preferably more, to redress past injustices. Instead, they only have 4. Three blacks and one Hispanic (who doesn’t even get to do any writing).

    Among the whites, three Canadians. So they have 3x as many Canadian nationals as they do Hispanics.

    They loooooove BLM and Affirmative Action and NAMs so much, but gee whiz, they just can’t find any to hire!

    This is what we have to do to ALL clueless segregated Dem front groups in media, academia and nonprofits. Shame them into integrating. Remind NAMs that Dems want their votes but don’t want to give them real power. Turn these Dem fronts into patronage-obsessed, drab Freddie Macs and WMATAs. Make them live by their own rules. Their own rules will destroy them.

    I hope you aren’t suggesting voters judge politicians on superficial details.

    • So long as women have the franchise, at least 50% of voters will judge politicians on superficial details.

      And was Thunderbiscuit’s insufferable voice a superficial detail? Because I’m sure millions of men voted against that shrill screech.

  3. The media is elite is (rightfully) terrified of America identifying with the God Emperor’s wholesomely good looking family.

    And some SONS, for once!

  4. In the social cosmology they are now being installed in the heavens at the apex of the pyramid as Gods.
    Seems like the people have always loved having a royal family. They are symbols of the society itself and the children are symbols of its continuity.

  6. The husband looks gay.

  7. I’ve been kind of a Tiffany Trump fan ever since you first posted about her here. I suspect she’s the least intelligent Trump kid but she seems like a nice enough person who makes the best of what she’s got. I thought her RNC speech was good and accomplished what it needed to.

  8. People magazine is kind of a weird phenomenon because the concept is completely foreign to straight men but is crack to AWALT in various degrees.

  9. There is no longer a defining distinction between proles and SWPLs in America.

    What separates the haves and have nots (in terms of the White demographic) is their city of residence (which is now tied to real estate value and desirability). Expensive cities have better amenities, better food, a better educated demographic, and more things to do and see.

    • And here’s the reason why:

      A PhD academic who lives and teaches in upstate, working class, Buffalo, NY has a lower social status than let’s say a guido who lives in Manhattan, perhaps not very well educated, but have the means to do so.

  10. I’m proud to admit that Slate Harambe’d me from their comments, lol.

    They were once an endearingly contrarian site with an ideologically diverse set of writers — now they are chasing Salon.

    • When Slate started it was good, like an internet version of The New Republic of the late’80s and early ’90s (I think the staff included New Republic veterans.) After George W. Bush defeated Al Gore I think they started going downhill.

    • He backpedalled this months ago. It’s “extreme vetting” of people from select countries now.

    • Trump is a life long Democrat who is basically uninterested in policy. He’ll be better than the totally corrupt and hilariously incompetent Hilary Clinton with her army of cheaters and liars and frauds, but beyond that, who the hell knows what he’ll do? Mike Pence or Paul Ryan or Ted Cruz or Stephen Moore might be leading him by the nose for 4 years.


      November 10, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      • Trump is not interested in policy, but he BELIEVES in cracking down on illegal immigration and in non-interventionist foreign policy.

  13. Letter I received from The Guardian:


    It was a terrible night for women, for Muslims, for Hispanic Americans, for people who believe climate change is a real and present danger, for people who believe women have a right to abortion, for men and women who object to sexual harassment of the most brutal and obvious kind, for disabled people, for black people, for Jewish people, for gay people, for progressives, for liberals, for people who believe Barack Obama was born in the USA, for a free and independent media working in the public interest.

    There’s no doubt that the election of Donald Trump as US president is one of the biggest events of our lifetimes, and like the outcome of the Brexit referendum, could be one of the most important stories in the history of the Guardian. Our talented and committed teams in the US and around the world have been working round-the-clock to bring you the fastest updates, engaged reporting and video, deep analysis and thoughtful commentary. We will redouble these efforts in the coming weeks and months. We want to understand why America voted for Donald Trump, and hold him to account for his words and actions.

    I’d like to thank you, as Guardian members and subscribers, for your crucial support.

    As you know, we are increasingly asking our readers to support Guardian journalism, both financially and by championing our shared belief that good-quality, rigorous, honest reporting can help to make the world a better, fairer place. If you are able and willing to give more than you already do, you can make a one-off contribution here, or share this link with others who may wish to do so.

    In the aftermath of this election, we need to keep our heads. We need to hold onto the progressive and liberal space that the Guardian has occupied for nearly 200 years. Equality, the rule of law, care for the environment, anti-racism, feminism, religious freedom, standing up for the marginalised, decency, kindness — these things still matter. They will always matter.

    Progressive ideas are good ideas and the Guardian will never turn away from them.

    • Between the lines…the Dem legal/media/think tank apparatchik unemployment rate is about to go through the roof, and a lot of people who were counting on jobs in the White House are going to be needing a “journalism” paycheck.

      It’s going to be Hunger Games at media outlets and law firms.

      Just another reason why we need to turn up the heat on integration, to really demoralize them and turn them against each other.

  14. “good looking first family”

    Trump is unattractive and his sons are downright ugly.


    November 10, 2016 at 10:03 am

    • Trump the old man is not that attractive, but the young Donald Trump was attractive, and also very tall, something that women like.

      • I will admit that pics of young Trump aren’t quite as off-putting as I expected. He had a decently handsome face when he was a kid. He is tall, but he’s also quite pear-shaped. But his sons…my God, they are amazingly homely.


        November 10, 2016 at 10:27 am

  15. Liveleak video of a man on a NY subway having a meltdown over Trump’s victory.
    Lots of funny comments too.
