My response to an SJW: I am not your friend and the era of the Beta male is over

My response to an SJW: I am not your friend and the era of the Beta male is over

Let me explain why 53% of white women voted Trump

There has been much bellyaching by liberal white women that 53% of us voted for Donald Trump in November presidential election.

After learning of this statistic, Sa’iyda Shabazz writes a challenge letter to her white friends in The Mary Sue:

So, you voted for Trump. You don’t have to admit it, I know you did. Granted, I think the fact that some of you won’t admit it is telling. Some of you have said that you have stayed silent because you didn’t want to get dragged for voting for him.

If you’re standing by your choice, why won’t you defend it? And to those of you who have been open with your admiration…what exactly do you admire about him?

She concludes: I may still be your friend, but our relationship will never be the same.

My response is below:

Dear Sa’iyda Shabazz,

While I am not your friend (and clearly won’t be anytime soon), I feel obliged to explain.

  • I am the wife of a white husband (who is a kind, hard-working, devoted family man).
  • I am the mother of a white son (who is the perfect mix of smart and sweet).
  • I am the sister of a white brother (who has served this country honorably as a US Marine).
  • I am the aunt of a white nephew (who has also served this country in the US Army).
  • I am the daughter of a white father (who won a Pulitzer prize covering the race riots in Detroit, in an effort to support civil rights).
  • I am the best friend of a white co-blogger (who has served in various hot spots across the globe as a Green Beret).
  • I am the employee of a white, male employer (who is an awesome boss and a substantial taxpayer).

I see how hard all of these men work, how much they give to family and friends, and how much they give to this country. These are my primary relationships. When I vote, the quality of their lives are going to be a significant part of my decision matrix.

While life under Donald Trump may not be perfect for them, I anticipate that their lives will be better because of the policies that Trump plans to enact and the people he intends to put in charge. So will mine. And, so will those of progressives deriding those of us who voted for Trump…including you.

I am not going to vote so you feel “safe”. In fact, you voting your feelings is part of the problem.

After eight years of the Obama administration and its antics (e.g., global warming is more of a threat than terrorism), we will be safer only after January 20, 2017.  I suspect there are many other Americans who are looking forward to that date as well.

As an extra bonus for my vote, I sense there is now an appreciation for the “alpha-male” that has been noticeably lacking for at least eight years. Dear Sa’iyda, please allow me to show you what that looks like:

I am so damned tired of the continuous white-man-bashing of social justice warriors. It seems I am not the only one, as the evidence suggests:

I admit that Donald Trump is far from perfect. However, I have seen this man grow during the campaign. I anticipate he will learn rapidly, adjust readily to the conditions of the Office of President, and continue to be flexible and adaptable in pursuing the best interests of all the citizens in this nation (just not the special, protected classes like Obama administration has done).

Sa’iyda: I sure hope you’re tolerant and open-minded enough to acknowledge improvements in both Trump and the country that you will see in the next four years (at least).

In conclusion, the one thing I like best about electing Donald Trump: The era of the Beta Male is over.

I hope my explanation helps. Thank you for the opportunity to do so.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Bravo, Leslie. Well spoken. P.S. Merry Christmas!

I sense there is now an appreciation for the “alpha-male” that has been noticeably lacking for at least eight years.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

This was the reasoning behind my prediction—months ago—that the notorious “women’s vote” would break for Trump, despite all that “war on women” garbage. Bitter old divorcees, and unimaginative college girls obsessed with the romance of glass ceilings would vote for Hillary; the others would go for Trump, a man like the alpha dog they married (or wish they’d married), only more so.

Of course if I said so at the time, I’d have been buried under a pile of criticism about my patriarchal privilege. And we privileged patriarchal types know when shutting up is the better part of valor.

My only caveat is that I’m not so sure the “appreciation … has been … lacking” for the past near-decade. I think the appreciation was there all the time, but it wasn’t given an opportunity to materialize. Recall that the GOPe had no intention of giving us an Alpha candidate. The fact that Trump was able to beat them is itself part of the evidence for his innate Alphaness. Or, as the saying goes, nothing succeeds like success. Market demand changes when a superior product is available.

    You’d be amazed at the number of bitter old divorcees who refused to vote for Hillary because of her standing by Bill during the Lewinsky thing. She lost a lot of these women then and never got them back.

I hope that our alpha males in the military will regain the sense of great worth that they bring to us, overcoming the negativity, criticism, and disrespect that has rained down on them the last 8 years from their disgusting commander in chief.

I would go a bit farther, but then I am probably not as nice a person as you are. I believe that Sa’iyda Shabazz is not in any way a friend, or in reality a countrywoman. I believe that she and her ilk are enemies of our country, our Constitution, and our people. I believe that their goal is to impose a punitive dictatorship to punish everyone for the irredeemable sin of not having put them in charge forever. And that means that eventually, there will have to be a reckoning.


Pity her husband … wait

Well done, Leslie!

Magnificent, Leslie. Agree 1,000%.

I am so turned-off by the metro-sexual trend that has sought to androginize the population.

Alpha-Males ROCK!

Merry Christmas to you and all the unashamedly white men in your life, and across America!

“If you’re standing by your choice, why won’t you defend it?”

The fact that someone opposed to Trump’s presidency (and likely a Hillary voter) demands that Trump supporters need “defend” their support is part of the problem. This is America – nobody need defend their votes to anyone. The fact that Shabazz made her “demand” shows how intolerant and arrogant such people are. The question presupposes that the questioner’s vote was the “correct” vote, votes for other candidates must be “defended.” And, as everyone here understands, no “defense” is acceptable. No matter what you say, your explanation will be met with accusations that you’re racist, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, etc. They really don’t want to hear your “defense,” because as soon as you open your yap, they’ll shout you down.

    Mike H. in reply to DaveGinOly. | December 25, 2016 at 6:43 pm

    That challenge should be thrown back at her with an argument by argument refutation of her defense of Hillary. She’s the one with the weak candidate who lost.

    Her assertion that Trump is the one who needs defense just shows her to be a donkey with a different label.

      JOHN B in reply to Mike H.. | December 25, 2016 at 7:05 pm

      I told my liberal daughter that if she voted for Hillary because she could not stand Trump, that’s okay.

      But if she voted for Hillary because she actually believed that Hillary was good, honest, deserving to be president or any similar reason, she was outrageously impossibly wrong. There was no defense to voting for Hillary except for the negative – she was not Trump.

I know some liberals who are really happy and positive people. They make a point of finding happiness in all sorts of things. They thrive. They are wonderful people. They are comfortable enough with their politics that they don’t need to dogmatically ram every micro-event in the world of a red vs blue political lense nor force their opinion on everyone in their midst. They don’t look to me to validate their politics or world view. They value diversity in their midst.

I felt compelled to comment on that in light of the SJW’s who seem perpetually butt hurt and in need of safe spaces. Someone take the conch away from these individuals when they leave their therapist’s office.

In “The Republic”, Plato is attempting to answer the question, “What is The Just”. To do this, Plato invents a “republic” which would exemplify justice. Shockingly, it is a totalitarian dystopia which is governed by an privileged elite. Only the elite is allowed to have children – the babies of the non-elite are taken and left to die. All children above a certain age are taken and raised by the state. Plato accurately described the leftist totalitarian regimes of our times over two thousand years ago.

Some have concluded that Plato was totalitarian. An alternative explanation is that Plato was merely describing what happens when Justice is elevated to a position of ultimate value.

What the video above shows is the idolatrous worship of Justice by Social Justice Warriors. Justice is unworthy of worship.

Freedom is better than Justice.

    Some have concluded that Plato was totalitarian

    I have, and I know why. Plato believed that what the rest of us know as “reality” was really “shadows on a cave wall”. That being the case, we humans are impotent to deal with everyday life and need a “strong leader” to get us through. It’s no coincidence that all socialist countries are based upon the teachings of Plato while the few remaining free countries are based upon the teachings of Aristotle. Aristotle taught that reality really did exist and humans were competent to understand it and deal with it.

    Actually, that description sounds a lot like Sparta

And the Carolina Panthers should have won last year’s Superbowl, but what are ya gonna do? Not sure how many leftists are NFL fans, but they apparently believe final scores are negotiable or negatable if one is disappointed.

BTW, adult life-long Zeta Male here, positioned to avoid any scrutiny whatsoever.

Dear Sa’iyda: Ge’t lo’st.

Thanks, Leslie. Very well said. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Superb. But you don’t owe her an explanation. None of us do. PC, the language patrol, etc is just trying to censor, bully and make independent thought unacceptable. It is failing increasingly and the Sa’iyda Shabazz ilk are still trying. She knows why and will continue to ask like a three year old until she gets the answer she wants which is increasingly looking like never.

Sa’iyda: If you’re standing by your choice, why won’t you defend it?

You first. Why would you vote for a corrupt, elitist, racist and sexist, enabler of pedophiles and philanderers? If you’re standing by your choice to vote for Hillary, why won’t you defend it rather than challenging Trump voters on their choice?

Leslie: Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said she doesn’t need to cater to male Star Wars fans….

Great. F#$k her (pardon my French). Star Trek‘s Capt. James T. Kirk was 100 times the alpha male that whiny little Luke Skywalker could ever dream of being.

Hell, Kathryn Janeway had more testicular fortitude than most male Star Wars characters.

And we don’t have to wait another 4-6 years (which will be almost entirely devoted to CGI development) to find out what happens next in the series.

I fear what happens next in the series. They rumors I’m hearing are that it won’t live up to Janeway’s fine example.

And lol, Luke was definately beta. No alpha cries that much.

CheetoliniWithNukes | January 3, 2017 at 11:47 am

Cheetolini is so “alpha” male. How “alpha” is it when your rich daddy finds a doctor to give you bone spurs to chicken out of the Vietnam draft? And when this monkey dummies up his wars, like chickenhawk Bush, your silence will be deafening.

Well written, Mrs. Eastman. As a member of the deplorable 53%, I am looking forward to the next 4 (or 8) years. He’s done pretty well so far and he’s not even sworn in yet!
