The Bradley Manning News Stories Are Actually Pretty Funny

I realize that we are supposed to ignore the fact that transgenderism is a mental disorder and actually take it serious despite no scientific evidence, but these Bradley Manning news stories are actually pretty hilarious.

They all dance around the fact that “Chelsea” Manning used “her” name from “Bradley” Manning, which begs the question of why she had a boy’s name to begin with. The few that go into it either try to downplay the transgenderism aspect of it to play up the fact that Manning leaked national security information or they try to downplay his/her/its crimes to play up the fact that he is now a she.

It seems even the media is in on the joke that to write fully about what Bradley Manning did then cover why we must now call him a girl and change his name to Chelsea is to expose the dude has some serious wires loose.

This all comes from the same group of people — the press — that want us to believe we are all going to drown because of sea levels in 100 years. The average, normal person understands that boys who opt for castration and new pronouns are nuts, despite no longer having any, and that the media cannot bring themselves to admit it jeopardizes all their other scientific notions.

To hang one’s hat on unscientific silliness and then pontificate on what science says just shatters the whole mythology that the press is not agenda driven. In other words, it is really hard to take someone seriously on “science says” climate change is caused mostly by man when that same person really believes boys can decide for themselves to become girls and there is no mental health issue involved. The media’s treatment of Bruce Jenner just compounds the absurdity of it all.

The post-truth left tying itself in knots over identity politics will one day be looked upon as the best comedy of the twenty-first century.
