Leave it to Canada’s most enthusiastic Trump fan who doesn’t think women should be allowed to vote to come up with perhaps the most ingeniously ludicrous theory about Brexit that has been set forth so far.
In a post on her JudgyBitch blog, Andrea Hardie (aka “Janet Bloomfield”) tries her hand at political pop psychology, MRAsplaining the popularity of the “Remain” vote among younger British voters as the result of their being raised by single mothers.
No, really. As Hardie sees it, young Brits hunger for a political substitute for the daddy they never had in real life — and have found their ideal father figure in the European Union, of all
people international entities.
Hardie dismisses the legitimate concerns younger Brits have about Brexit — concerns that happen to be shared by economists, investors, the agencies that rate the credit-worthiness of government bonds, and Chuck Tingle — pretending instead that millennial Brits are just whiny brats upset that Brexit might ruin their vacation plans.
Or, as Hardie puts it, in her inimitable style,
Oh, boo hoo. I want to go to Spain for the weekend and I’ll need to find my passport, boohoo I’m so oppressed…. Essentially, it amounts to ‘I will experience a tiny bit of inconvenience and I am far too precious for something as horrifying as inconvenience.’
But the real driver of the “Remain” vote amongst the young, Hardie suggests, is their daddy hunger.
Remain says ‘I miss my real Daddy but you’ll do, EU’.
Is it really surprising that the generation raised by proud single mothers, the generation more likely to have a smart phone than a dad who lives in the home with them, is crying out for the boundary setting paternalism of the EU? What is the EU other than the Daddy substitute most modern liberal democratic governments represent?
I’m pretty sure that the EU is actually “a union of European nations created by treaty and put into effect in 1993 for the purpose of working gradually toward an economic and political unification of Europe by means of a unified monetary policy, a common currency, standardized laws of commerce and trade, etc.”
After depositing her first lump of nonsense on Daddy EU, Hardie takes a moment to remind us just how bad it is that women are allowed to vote.
Recall that after suffrage, the first thing women voted for was lifetime alimony – all the benefits of being married, but none of the responsibilities, and women have continued to vote to replace personal, family bonds with government ones.
Then, in an impressive display of sophistry, she pivots back to Daddy EU:
Now women have done one better, and raised a generation of whimpering, weak-minded, responsibility averse, perpetually aggrieved moaners for whom the need to make difficult, complex choices is always someone else’s responsibility. In the case of Brexit, that’s the EU.
Er, what? I’m having a teensy bit of a problem figuring out how the complicated matrix of international agreements that underpins the EU has anything to do with the personal responsibilities of twentysomething Brits. Are the youth of Britain deciding to drink even more heavily on weekends than the youth of Britain traditionally have because they think Big Daddy EU is going to send a car to make sure they get home safe and sound?
This is a generation raised in daycare centers because Mommy was too busy cooking, cleaning or caring for others for money, and so plagued with guilt that junior’s every whim was indulged immediately, all while Daddy was either torn from the home or so emasculated he needed written permission to touch his own balls.
Yeah, I don’t think that last bit is a thing outside of Femdom fetishism.
Brexit is just the beginning. Leave is often cast as ‘rejecting the liberal world order’, but what they have really rejected is the female world order.
The … female world order? Here’s a picture of the European Parliament.
I’m pretty sure most of those people are dudes.
Women, (mis)led by feminists, have shackled the traditional powers of both men and women and tried to replace them with Big Daddy government.
Repeating the same nonsense over and over doesn’t make it any more true.
The EU is under attack from Islamic invaders, once civil societies now have rape and crime rates that rival the world’s biggest cesspools, the economy is rigged to deliver returns principally to shareholders and not workers, and the global elite have eaten naïve politicians pandering to irrational women voters alive.
The West is on the brink of collapse, and the adults in the room are finally reaching their limits.
And apparently, at least in Hardie’s mind, the best solution to a world on the brink of collapse is to … push it off a cliff?
