Melissa Harris Perry Says Star Wars Is Racist
12/16/15, 07:07

To answer my original question, I believe the mental gymnastics on display are simply a function of what academics call "affective partisan polarization". An interesting (though long) paper on the subject can be found here:

http://www.shsu.edu/~sgu001/swpsa2015.pdf

The short of it is, Americans are becoming increasingly emotional and clannish, starkly divided into their own social camps and mostly unwilling to tolerate outsiders. It is not all dissimilar from the racism or religious xenophobia of centuries past; except now (Enlightened as we are) we do not use skin color or church affiliation to define who is Other, but rather, what blogs we read and television channels we watch.

It's hard for lefties to see a lefty acting like A Lefty, so instead, we reroute the damage and get back to a more comfortable narrative.

Cena - but do you think this way because she really IS the "only crazy lefty", or because you now identify with lefties (however we might define that term), and that makes it harder for you to understand your rival's perspective? I put it to you that, if you were still a righty, you would have been able to rattle off a long list of allegedly "crazy lefties", including Michael Moore, Rachel Maddow, Piers Morgan, Rosie O'Donnell, Kanye, Chomsky, every Hollywood celebrity besides Kirk Cameron, Dawkins, Paglia, and Bill Maher (the last three of whom are to various extents libertarian). You'd almost certainly disown Alex Jones (who is a Bush-hating, Russia-loving, slightly-right-of-center Truther, not a conservative), and probably wouldn't be too harsh on any of the others in your current list. Coulter and Malkin, for example, are (for their own respective tribe) about on par with pundits like Franken or Colbert, while Glenn Beck is fairly innocuous and difficult to hate.

Instead, I submit that Mirror Universe Righty-Cena would stroke his goatee, and say something like, "Well, there's Fred Phelps - but oh, he's really the only crazy conservatard"!

And yes, as That Guy points out, polarized binary-thinking is exactly the kind of thinking employed by Hitler. This brings us back to the authoritarianism inherent in Superman's worldview.

For example:

http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/b/bd/Jimmy_Olsen_Vol_1_42.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20090112133055

This cover is clearly referencing what HyperCatholic(Excommunicated) is talking about in the video above! The villain here is an entertainment industry insider, brainwashing "Jimmy" (ourselves) and commanding him to kill his savior (Jesus). Meanwhile, this one:

http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/6/6f/Jimmy_Olsen_Vol_1_98.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20090112134307

is a modern-day retelling of Job. (possibly also a cynical look at traditional marriage, and our moral obligation to procreate, whether we want to or not)

It's both great fun, and highly instructive, to dig through online archives of Jimmy Olsen covers, and read them as allegories for the tumultuous relationship between ourselves and God.

You don't really believe that, do you Mr Bort? American culture is replete with all kinds of archetypes and shades of moral grey. What about Wolverine (bad man who does good things)? Or Harvey Dent (good man who does bad things)? Neither of those two characters fit your Jesus/Hitler binary, and in fact, I'd argue that Wolverine's Byronic anti-hero is FAR more popular in the American imagination than the simplistic goodguy-Jesus archetype - Spawn, Blade, The Punisher, Jax Teller, Scorpion, Tank Girl, Daryl Dixon, Stone Cold, Batman post-Dark Knight. Hell, even our own homegrown JESUS (the titular hero of Broadway's own "Jesus Christ Superstar") is more anti- than hero; a sinful, self-doubting hippie who accomplished nothing and failed at life.

My personal favorite is probably Starbuck, the Katee Sackhoff version from the new BSG. Not only is she an unapologetic anti-hero, not only is she a blatant Jesus allegory, but on top of BOTH of those things, she's this weird blend of Pagan, Gnostic, and Mormon space religions! How can you fit a Jesus allegory into the Jesus archetype, when she is not, in fact, the Christian Jesus, but an explicitly post-Christian/pre-Christian Jesus? You can't. You simply can't.

American culture recognizes plenty of archetypes besides Jesus and Hitler; American culture recognizes as many archetypes as there can be under the sun. SUPERMAN, and indeed much of the classic DC comic world (aside from progressive titles like Batman and Lobo), THEY are what fail to recognize any archetype besides Jesus/Hitler! Your criticism should be directed where it belongs; against Supes and DC Comics, not against America, which lies blameless.

Where are the Harajuku Girls? Ska Week cannot be complete without the Harajuku Girls... right?

Two questions:

One, what's so bad about what she said? I don't see what the big deal is here. Yeah it's kind of a dumb argument, but it doesn't sound like she was trying to be serious (why would she, given the venue and the subject matter?), and even if she WAS serious, so what? It's a valid complaint.

And two, how does a discussion about "a leftist" who makes a stupid comment, quickly, and almost as if by magic, metamorphose into "yeah but those righties though, they sure are dumb"?

It's "us". We are all Jesus' Jimmy Olsen.

The question is, whether you yourself are Jesus' "nice" Jimmy Olsen, or super-dick Gorilla Jimmy Olsen.

Marc Okrand on Klingon
12/14/15, 07:14

Ooooohhh. Right, OK, I get what you meant now! I understand the meaning of the word "for", but as with many words in the English language, it can have various meanings depending upon the grammar used, and the context in which it appears. I assumed the preposition "for" was modifying the verb "to make", when in fact it was modifying the noun, "language"! In other words, I parsed your sentence as "At the behest of space jocks, a nerd made a language"; but I now take it that you meant "a nerd made a language; the language was intended to be used by space jocks". You did not mean to imply that the space jocks had any knowledge of, or direct input into, the nerd's linguistic activities, hence rendering my response nonsensical!

God, I feel silly. :S

Question: in Klingon, how complex is the relationship between prepositions and the words which they modify? Does the language have separate prepositional forms, depending on whether they are being used as adjectives or as adverbs? Like, if I was to tell a Klingon warrior, "I primed the photon torpedoes for you", I'd really like to know beforehand if there might be any ambiguity as to whether I mean to *help* him, or to *blow him up*...!

One section, directly relevant to Mr Cat's comment:


------------------------
The particular nature of drone warfare is also a contributor to the higher stress levels. While the number is very small, officials who conducted the study said they did encounter a handful of pilots who suffered symptoms of PTSD post-traumatic stress disorder directly linked to their experience running combat operations. Unlike traditional pilots flying manned aircraft in a war zone, the pilots operating remote drones often stare at the same piece of ground in Afghanistan or Iraq for days, sometimes months. They watch someone's pattern of life, see people with their families, and then they can be ordered to shoot.

Here is an NPR story:

M-DEEM is correct. Drone piloting is an extremely stressful job, and as a result, the military requires some of the strictest psychological screening procedures for its prospective droneateers. In fact, drone pilots currently have a "burnout rate" (i.e. flipping out and quitting their jobs) at nearly three times what is considered normal for pilots!

I am not making this up.
