Peak Stupidity has promoted Mr. Jim Goad before, as tied with Mr. Steve Sailer as the best writers for the Takimag webzine. Perhaps that site should be in the blogroll, though we've just criticized it for the usability (see digression - what's new?! - in this post).
Well, I just got to reading Mr. Goad's The 18 Most Annoying People of 2018 retrospective, with his intial caveat that we all may have our own picks, likely a lot more than 18. So, don't read it with the intention of correcting him (Takimag doesn't have commenting anymore anyway), but just enjoy it. It seems like Mr. Goad's emphasis in the realm of annoyances is the feminist and genderbending types of stupidity, hence those topic keys are attached here.
The curmudgeon of conservative bent will like the article, so I have not much more comment. I'd heard of at least of the annoying individuals "profiled" (haha) and even posted about a few of them - we do try to keep up with stupidity and practitioners thereof. Let's see, here are posts about # 18 - David Buckel, # 15 - Claas Relotius, lucky # 7 - the Øb☭ma, #4 - Sarah Jeong, and Jim Goad's #1 pick, of whom you may as well read about, as a sample:
1. Rob TibbetsMr. Goad is not so civil with his words with some of the rest of these 18 annoying pieces-of-work, but, hey, this guy is numero uno and deserves a little respect.
Political beliefs are all well and good so long as you don’t smack others in the face with them. But there’s a special sewer tank in Haiti reserved for parents who use their child’s freshly murdered corpses to make a political point. Mollie Tibbetts was a white Iowa girl who once wrote “I hate white people” on Twitter. After her dead body was found in a cornfield this August, the life beaten out of her by an illegal immigration from Mexico, her father Bob penned a nauseating OpEd that placed Mexicans above white Iowans:Today, we need to turn the page. We’re at the end of a long ordeal. But we need to turn toward life — Mollie’s life — because Mollie’s nobody’s victim. Mollie’s my hero….The Hispanic community are Iowans. They have the same values as Iowans….As far as I’m concerned, they’re Iowans with better food.Mr. Tibbetts, I wouldn’t feel bad if one day those “Iowans with better food” were to feast on your carcass.
OK, good readers, I've got not only about 30 or 40 tabs open in the browser with more blog fodder, but a few more in my head, and others promised from previous posts! There will be no running out of material in the near future. More to come on Monday. Thank you for reading!
* Well OK, since she's on the graphic, let's hear about numero dos:
2. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZYeah, we're done too, Jim.
What can be said about this horse-teethed economic retard that hasn’t been said beyond underlining the fact that she claims to have come from poverty but instead grew up in a plush ’hood that was 81% white and whose residents enjoyed a per-capita income twice the national average? Nothing, and I’m so sick of her already that I refuse to say anything else.
