Universal Relents: "The Hunt" Showed Liberal Elites Hunting Down Deplorables

Even Hollywood is promoting the sort of anti-white hate we saw directed against white representatives at the Williams College Council meeting of April 9, 2019. Right now, Universal Pictures is promoting a new film in which liberal elites stalk and kill Trump supporters.

“The Hunt” shows people hunting down “deplorables.”

“Did anyone see what our [expletive]-in-chief just did?” one character asks, reported the Hollywood Reporter. “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

According to the Reporter, the movie’s script features blue-state characters hunting down red-state characters, characters with pro-life positions or who are labeled racists.

Unfortunately, Williams College has been a national leader in teaching anti-white propaganda. It has contributed to the efforts to turn innocent white kids in to villains who deserve to be mistreated and humiliated. Hopefully, in this next semester there will be more people on campus seeking to defend whites against abuse.

I just found out this morning, August 10, that Universal Pictures has cancelled the release of this film. It was originally called "Red State, Blue State".

'The Hunt' canceled by Universal following significant backlash
According to president Donald Trump, "What they’re doing, with the kind of movie they’re putting out, it’s actually very dangerous for our country. What Hollywood is doing is a tremendous disservice to our country.” Thankfully, it looks like someone in Hollywood has come to their senses.

To Readers of Ephblog

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CA - If you would like to stay in touch, I have established a new blog called Williams Liberty.

Williams Liberty has a different mission compared to EphblogWilliams Liberty will be focused primarily on breaking news. It will be promoted through my existing Twitter accounts, accounts that have more followers than the college's Twitter accounts. Covering breaking news at our nation's top liberal arts college is a service which cannot be provided by the Williams Record and would not be allowed on the college's websites.

It will, of course, be conservative friendly and politically incorrect.

In particular, it will provide the conservative viewpoint which has been largely absent on campus since 1989. Its contributors will be immune from ideologically motivated abuse or boycotts.

Consistent with conservative sensibilities, it will be well-written, tightly edited and moderated. Its language will be professional and PG at worst. Williams Liberty will be open to guest contributors (anonymous or not).

Guest contributors will be restricted to existing or prior William's College faculty and students.

Comments will be welcome from all. It may reserve a few spots for student contributors who will be picked on a competitive basis at the beginning of the school year or who have done a good job as guest contributors.

If you would like to submit an article for publication at Williams Liberty, please contact me through the form available on the blogsite, or me at 949.338.5921.

By the way, you can follow Williams Liberty on Twitter at @williamslibert5.

Bernie Sanders: One Comment Away from a Stroke

Bernie Sanders looked so angry tonight I feared for his arteries. He really is the most divisive candidate pitting everyone against the 1% as if that were a wholesome thing to do...or something well worth the apparently unrelenting anger.

It makes me wonder if Bernie is just, temperamentally, an extremely angry person and that politics is just he way of adapting to the needs of his own, violent neural system.

He looked so angry tonight that I feared, as president, he would nuke us. Meanwhile, the other candidates played their cards the best they could. Buttigieg played up his youth. Warren wore red to stress that she is a fighter.

It was fun for me to watch John Delaney get under her skin. At one point it looked like he was making her cry. Hickenlooper, again, impressed me. He stressed his practical experience, but forgot to mention how he'd work to get us all on marijuana. I liked another governor too, Steve Bullock. Unfortunately, he had his chin up to high during his sounded like he was choking or something. All three of them appeared to be gunning for Warren suggesting her ideas were silly, too expensive, impractical, or dead wrong. It was hard for me to find any fault with their critiques.

The best performance of the night, of course, came from Marianne Williamson, who was also gunning for Warren. Trish and I both contributed a dollar to her campaign in the expectation that we would do whatever we could to keep her on the debate stage. She looked great. She made the others look like they weren't really Democrats, that they were too wonky, that they were hypocrites for taking PAC donations.

As she said: "...if you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark physic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country then I’m afraid the Democrats are going to see some very dark days." All in all, she struck me as emotionally authentic and definitely not as scary as Warren or Bernie.

Meanwhile, I thought Amy Klobuchar's eye make-up made her look worse and perhaps even shorter. She looks like your angry, fat boss at the school district...not like a presidential candidate.

Among the congressman, I thought Beto O'Rourke continued his slide into immature ignominy. Tim Ryan said the right things, but then harmed his own message by looking oddly frightened. He seemed as if his mom had sent him to the corner for the debate.

All in all, it looks like most of the fire was trained on damaging Warren. It seems everyone has decided that Bernie is done. For me, I'm still supporting Marianne Williamson. Who needs an angry,  wonky commander-in-chief?

Fatal Flaw

CHICAGO - The distinguished free speech absolutist, Jerry Coyne of the University of Chicago, has reviewed the Sawicki Report and found it disappointing. To be more precise, he calls it "lame" and labels it "long and turgid."

The only thing Coyne likes about the report is it dropped the suggestion floated earlier by Jana Sawicki at Inside Higher Education that each student group should have a faculty adviser who would " with the club members about whether they'd thought through how the speaker's views would affect their peers."

Ultimately, Coyne asserts it is impossible to combine freedom of speech with inclusion and diversity.
Setting an example of simplicity and grace, Coyne introduces his article with a short and easy to understand summary of the Sawicki Report and its most significant and fatal flaw. "The committee’s statement does not constitute a policy," he writes. "’s a farrago of good intentions and desires to balance free speech with diversity and inclusion. But it offers no guidelines about what speech is to be seen as “hate speech” that threatens “dignitary safety” and therefore subject to institutional action."

Fans of Ephblog will note that Jerry Coyne quotes liberally from my recent Ephblog article accessing the Sawicki Report. As you may know, Jerry Coyne is a prominent "New Atheist" along with Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. Reportedly, Coyne's Why Evolution is True blogsite has over 50,000 e-mail subscribers.

Weepy Futch Potato

Over on Twitter, Franny Choi announced that she had accepted a two-year fellowship in English at Williams College. "I’m so so so excited to work with the fierce students at Williams," she wrote. Here's how she describes herself on her website:
Franny Choi is a queer, Korean-American poet, playwright, teacher, organizer, pottymouth, GryffinClaw, and general overachiever.  She is the author of two poetry collections, Soft Science (Alice James Books, 2019) and Floating, Brilliant, Gone (Write Bloody Publishing, 2014), as well as a chapbook, Death by Sex Machine (Sibling Rivalry Press, 2017).
I imagine the prolific Choi will feel right at home given her hatred for Trump, her advocacy for illegal immigrants, and her hostility to the second amendment. Inexplicably, her tweet indicates her surprise at her new appointment. "Can you believe," she tweets, "they wanted to hire this weepy futch potato?"

Out of curiosity, I looked up "futch." It means she sees herself as midway between being a feminine lesbian (femme) and a masculine lesbian (butch). There is even an attractive, multicolored chart for this.
I'll leave it to others to figure out why she refers to herself as a "weepy potato."
I think the readers of Ephblog are not as surprised as Franny about why the English department wanted to hire her.

I suspect we would be a good deal more shocked if the English department hired a high femme. Personally, I would consider it progress if the English department hired a poet - maybe even a stone butch - who composed poems that the way poetry used to be, back when it was popular and everyone liked it.
