In the newest edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle examines the issue of gun control from a liberal perspective and follows it to its logical end.
If it’s guns that kill people, not people, then why do some guns kill while others don’t?
Whittle suggests that perhaps the problem has something to do with boys growing up without strong father figures as well as the left’s continuing effort to water down masculinity into a version of femininity lite.
He cites as an example, a recent New York Times article titled 27 Ways to be a Modern Man.
As usual, Whittle shreds the progressive argument in the process.
In case you missed it, Ace of Spades wrote an excellent response to the New York Times piece.
Here’s an excerpt:
New York Times Writer Attempts to Explain What It Is To Be a “Modern Man,” to Everyone’s Great Embarrassment
It is often unmanly to even discuss “being a man” at all, but it can be done.
But describing “being a man” as nothing more than a series of trivial consumer choices reduces “being a man” to being a woman, but with these fashion preferences swapped out for women’s.
The other things that make someone a “modern man” are, apparently, simply behaving like a liberal, urban white woman (the actual target demographic of this piece), as in:
25. The modern man has no use for a gun. He doesn’t own one, and he never will.
26. The modern man cries. He cries often.
27. People aren’t sure if the modern man is a good dancer or not. That is, until the D.J. plays his jam and he goes out there and puts on a clinic.
Yes, crying and dancing and thinking guns are icky. That’s pretty much an exact description of Rooster Cogburn and Chuck Yaegher.
This New York Times piece is pure hatebait — hatebait, because it’s written to be mocked, but linked each time it’s mocked.
