Jill Soloway — Exhibit A for the premise that if Leftists didn’t have double standards, they’d have none at all

Why Now is the time to consider owning gold

I never watch the Emmys, and I say that with a great deal of pride. As last night’s anti-Trump exhibition showed, television is no longer about either entertaining or informing the American people; it is, instead, about “progaganda.” That’s not a typo. It’s a great neologism my friend Wolf Howling came up with to address the fact that whether watching their shows, attending their schools, or listening to (or reading) their news, you will be made to embrace the Progressive agenda.

For those who have drunk the Kool-Aid, it’s irrelevant (a) that the Progressive agenda has come close to destroying black America; (b) that it is making America incapable of defending itself against the radical threat of fundamentalist Islam; (c) that it is anti-science insofar as it pretends that the XX and XY chromosome pairing in humans is meaningless or that the planet is melting, all actual evidence to the contrary; (d) that it is aggressively trying to destroy the First Amendment’s promise that people can hold to the core tenets of their faith without government prosecution (except when those tenets tell them to bomb, behead, shoot, or stab others); and (e) that it pushes a vision of Big Government that, when carried to its logical conclusion, invariably ends up with government killing more people than all the individual “haters” or gun “nuts” or “Bible clingers” combined. What matters to the Left is that it feels good about itself. Its intentions are all to help the “little people,” never mind that the effect of those intentions predictably destroys those it aims to help.

This intro brings me to Jill Soloway, celebrated in Hollywood for having made a show about a transgender person who, if I understand correctly, pretends not to have paired XY chromosomes, but insists instead on being treated as a person with XX chromosomes. (I have to admit that I’m always confused about the terminology: What does “transgender man” or “transgender woman” mean? I cannot tell if the sex modifier in those phrases refers to chromosome reality or body dysmorphic wish-fulfillment.)

Solway, rather than accepting her award with a polite thank-you took it upon herself when backstage to let America know how evil those who don’t embrace Progressive thinking really are:

So Jews were otherized in Nazi Germany to gain political power for Hitler, and right now Donald Trump is doing the same thing. He’s otherizing people. He calls women pigs if they don’t look like beauty pageant contestants. He blames Muslim and Mexicans for our problems. He makes fun of disabled people. This is otherizing with a capital O, and has been used in our history before to start and win wars, and he needs to be called out every chance he gets for being one of the most dangerous monsters to ever approach our lifetimes. He’s a complete dangerous monster, and any moment that I have to call Trump out for being an inheritor to Hitler, I will.

Now, much as it pains me to admit it, Solway’s right partially. There is a presidential candidate who is openly “otherizing people,” entirely dismissing their humanity, and making it quite plain that they are so evil that they cannot be saved but are, instead, a blight on the body politic. It’s just that Solway got her candidate wrong:
