Trump Idiots Know What Is To Blame For Recent Celebrity Suicides -- Political Correctness!


This week, we lost both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to suicide. While most normal humans reacted by sharing nice memories of the two of them, or talking about depression and suicide prevention, with empathy and kindness... Trump idiots Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens of Turning Point USA decided to buck that trend and instead make these tragic deaths about their personal crusade against "political correctness" and "victim culture." Because of course.

In a Periscope video posted on Friday, Owens and Kirk drove around in a car (why do people do this?) chatting about how probably the reason for these suicides was that Bourdain and Spade were forced to be politically correct.

Owens explains:

“We built up a society that was so politically correct that people were being fake. We’ve been pretending that everything offends us. We’ve been pretending that we’re these perfect beings who are overly sensitive to everything.”

The gist of this, it seems, is that she thinks everyone is actually as much of an asshole as she and Charlie Kirk are, that no one actually thinks anything they say or anyone else says is shitty, but that everyone is just pretending to, so that people will think they are perfect? That is quite the conspiracy!

Owens -- like a teenager who just finished reading "Catcher in the Rye" for the first time -- then explains that she, unlike all you other suckers, is a very authentic person, and that is why she said that not having babies made Chelsea Handler crazy.

Call me a phony, but I feel quite sure that at no point in recent human history has it ever been the case that saying every rude thing that comes into your mind comes with no social consequences. I also don't feel like it makes someone inauthentic to not do this. Sometimes, it's just not necessary! Most normal people do not feel oppressed by this. I am not mourning the fact that I can't just walk up to a stranger on the street and tell them that their outfit is hideous.

Kirk, naturally, agreed with her, explaining that people cannot even tell jokes anymore, because it might offend other people.

“You’re not sensitive enough to the vegan community. You’re not sensitive enough to the plight of blacks when you wear your hair in braids. It’s all so inauthentic that on the inside, people are struggling. I feel like that has a lot to do with the fact that suicide rates have increased so much over the last few years.”

I feel like the reason Kirk feels like he cannot tell jokes has more to do with the fact that he is not funny than the fact that he is being oppressed by political correctness. I also do not think that either Kate Spade nor Anthony Bourdain committed suicide because they couldn't tell racist jokes.

The duo also blamed "victim culture," and their theory that people think they don't actually have to do or accomplish anything other than being victims. Pretty sure that's not a thing!

Kirk then reiterated Owens' point that everyone was actually just as much of a jerk as they are, but that they are forced to pretend otherwise, against their will.

“There’s this chasm between the public persona and the private person. And they feel as if they have to be someone different when they’re presented publicly. And that really creates demons inside of you.”

You know, if Sigmund Freud were alive today, and had not yet come up with the concepts of the id, ego and superego, I would bet you that he would be very impressed with Kirk's theories. Or not.

There are a lot of things that can be done to prevent suicide, or help people who are depressed. Not being able to tell bad racist jokes without someone thinking you are an asshole is not one of them.

The New York Times this weekend brought us a case study of how Donald Trump's family separation policy tore apart just one family last year, although this particular example is notable because it involves the youngest child known -- so far -- to have been taken from his parents at the US-Mexico border. Little Constantin Mutu was just four months old when he was taken from his father, Vasile, a Romanian seeking asylum in the USA, having believed all that outdated crap about the Statue of Liberty being the "Mother of Exiles." What a sap! We're not letting those tempest-tossed takers push US around any more!

Constantin was taken from his dad in February of 2018, a good two months before the Trump administration officially announced the family separation policy -- but which we now know had been operating covertly since the summer of 2017 before it was expanded last year. Vasile and Florentina Mutu, members of the Roma ethnic minority, came to the US seeking asylum after Florentina found out that when she'd had a C-section while giving birth to Constantin, the doctors had also sterilized her without her knowing it. She said she was handed papers while she was foggy from the pain of labor, and had no idea what she was signing, and reporter Caitlin Dickerson notes "human rights groups have documented the practice of forced sterilizations" of Roma elsewhere in Europe.

And the Mutus had heard all sorts of wonderful things about America, too. They made a living by leaving their village and begging or doing short-term labor around Europe, then going home, where life was less expensive, but some people from their village had reputedly gone to the US and become rich, although maybe those stories were exaggerated. Still,
