Strike? You’re Going to Strike?

In Douglas Adams’ Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a great computer has been created to provide an answer to the question of life, the universe and everything…or to provide a question to the answer…I forget.
Philosophers burst into the room to protest the computer, as the computer would actually put them all out of work. From the radio script:

Some folks should not threaten to strike.

Gus Bailey found this gem:
Dozens of artists, entertainers, and activists including the usual suspects like Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing, Ed Asner and Michael Shannon have attached their names to an effort calling for a month-long protest to stop President-elect Donald Trump. “No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!” reads a full-page ad placed in the New York Times last week by the group Refuse Racism. “Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger,” the ad says. 
I could actually do with less Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing and Ed Asner in my life.
“Simply put, Hollywood is the base of the entire modern American culture. It is the foundation of the country, so to speak, the glue that’s holding it together. And think about what happens when you destroy the foundation of a house. It comes crashing down, right? Well, that’s exactly what’s going to happen to America unless Donald Trump realizes how real the danger of that actually is, and chooses to step down as President of his own free will. And while we’re on the subject, between you and me – nobody wants Hollywood to stop doing its thing, but this is a necessary move.”
Please. Please.  Start with the terrible superhero movies.

    Deep Thought did provide the answer: 37. It was then necessary to build an even bigger computer to define the question. According to legend, we, Earth; are that computer.

    “17!” shouted the humbug, scribbling furiously.

    While Obama is still pretty far away from a fascist, he’s closer to one than Trump. If they actually cared about their cause, they would have made all this noise earlier if the noise NOW was at all justified. But of course, they have nothing against fascists, and everything against “fascists.” like everything else, progressives have changed the meaning of it until it in no way resembles what they’re actually talking about. Orwellian naming sense not only gives bad things comfortable names, it also tends to make benign things sound evil. Of course, by exaggerating numerous traits that are less than ideal (as though ideal was possible) into evil. So if you believe, at the very least, that actual terrorists shouldn’t be allowed into this country, then clearly you’re a racist not unlike Hitler.


  4. “A regime of grave danger”. Is this even English? I’m sure I would have lost points on any history essay I ever turned in at university if I had been idiotic enough to write a phrase like that.

    Even more hysterical (in all senses of the word) is their assertion that “without Hollywood, there is no America”.
