TODD: It is so obvious to me that in March of 2020, we began seeing — like someone flipped the switch on — “Hey, Bob?” “Yeah?” “You got the tyranny switch ready?” “Yep.” “Turn her on, baby!” Poof! Then you’re starting to see, “Hey, it looks like up is becoming down,” and we are seeing a flipping of society, and the left is pushing this. So we see things that propel or enhance life — or, in fact, allow life to continue — being pressed down.
Things that grow minds are being just stomped upon for very specifically in the selective, medically useless deadly lockdowns of schools, churches, and small businesses. Small businesses grow into Big Business. They provide generational wealth, and if not wealth, they provide freedom. Small business is big freedom. It’s distributed decision-making. It’s all the things a technocrat would hate.
Those are being crushed but not Big Business. Schools — well done, properly done — grow minds, and they grow critical thinking skills, and they grow socialization, and they allow children to practice being with one another and conflict resolution and all those things… I know that can happen in homeschooling too. I’m not saying it can’t. Those things have been crushed.
Gyms! Something as simple as go to the gym and work out — in fact, we were told to not go to beaches. Do you remember the video of the guy who was surfing in Los Angeles in the ocean by himself and cops went to drag him out of the ocean? “Hey, no vitamin D for you.” So if it is helpful to life, if it propels life, if it grows mind, if it grows the spirit — churches — if you don’t believe in that religiously, then it grows community, being crushed.
If it’s either (laughing) making big mobbed up businesses bigger or the Democrat Party bigger or the technocrats more powerful or people weaker and in a state of fear? Well, goodness gracious, pour on the gasoline. “Bob, you got the weaken-the-people switch? It’s right next to tyranny.” Right? In fact, you know what? We have a prostitution story that proves this exact point.
(Love Client #9 parody song)
TODD: Mr. Broadcast Engineer, I know that the Maha could get away with that, but he was the Maha. I fear for my existence as a guide host. I’ll get in all sorts of trouble with something like that. You can’t have humor. It grows the spirit. It grows the mind. It grows communities. Humor grows human connection. It’s… The Manhattan district attorney has ended prostitution prosecutions. Okay. Factually speaking, most of the women in prostitution have been either trafficked into it or addicted to drugs and pushed into it.
There are the occasional women who will tell you, “I enjoy this.” Well, okay. The time I’ve spent around young women who have been sex trafficked; I’ve never heard that from them. Unfortunately, I’ve spent a fair deal of time around young women who’ve been sex trafficked. To stop the prosecutions of this is to let it grow, and I get the libertarian instinct in me is to say, “Well, what two people decide to do…”
It’s not two people. There’s pimps involved in this. In fact, here’s the crazy, frightening math. Sex slavery is more profitable today even per capita than original slavery was. People make more money, more margin, as it were, more profit margin, as it were, from that enterprise. And you have whole websites that profit from this. Don’t kid yourself. A lot of online porn is trafficked. It is. It’s demonstrably true.
Twitter won’t take videos down of kids who said, “Hey, you know, I was 15 when they did that to me.” Two instances now of lawsuits where Twitter’s going, “Well, but it doesn’t violate our standards.” I mean, that’s a very serious thing. And you get into politics, and you get into the now everything, every… If it’s sexual, unless it leads to life, it must be promoted.
Unless it leads to life being sustained, it must be promoted — and then, unless it’s unless it’s, say, just a relationship between a man and a woman, it must be promoted. It must be, must be grown and et cetera. And, in fact, there is a great comparison here to the upside-downness of the world and how it’s accelerated.
America’s enduring forever anchorman noted something, something really odd about the mockingbird media when it’s a popular leftist who gets in trouble for a sexual scandal, like Client No. 9, like we just played, the media turns around and attacks the principle of controlling sexual appetites.
RUSH: “Why will some men risk everything for secret trysts with sex workers? The answer may seem obvious, but experts say it’s not just about easy sex. Some might be drawn to adventure. Some are attracted to the level of secrecy they think will come with a paid prostitute. Others are looking for a sense of control.” You see where this is going? AP is practically trying to explain it in a justifiable way. “It could say that they don’t know how to be intimate.”
Oh, of course. The Johns have a reason. They don’t know how to be intimate, and they don’t have to be intimate with a prostitute. Bev Smallwood quoted here, a psychologist in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, “It could say that they have a sexual addiction, that they have become desensitized to sex within a more appropriate context and they’re seeking one more thrill of the chase.” Now, but this, let me get deeper here into the story ’cause this, ladies and gentlemen, the piece de resistance.
For those of you in Rio Linda, that means this is the nut graph. They probably don’t know what that is, either. This is the big point, for those of you in Rio Linda. This is the point of the story. “There’s little threat of rejection with paid sex. If you want your wife to behave in ways that push certain boundaries, you might get turned down. If you pick somebody up at a bar and try to ease her out of her comfort zone, you might get ‘partial results.’ But with a prostitute, you get what you pay for.”
So the wife is to blame.
She just won’t go all out.
She just won’t put out, won’t entertain the fantasy.
So the guy has got to go out, buy the prostitute, get what he pays for, and then she leaves.
Why did I do that prostitution story? I just wanted to hear the Spitzer song, and there was really no way to work it in there, but now, during the break, I found something. Show prep never stops on this program. ‘Are Humans Meant to be Monogamous?’ This is from LiveScience.com. “News of politicians’ extramarital affairs…” News of DEMOCRAT “politicians’ extramarital affairs seems to be in no short supply lately, but if humans were cut from exactly the same cloth as other mammals, a faithful spouse would be an unusual phenomenon. Only 3% to 5% of the roughly 5,000 species of mammals (including humans) are known to form lifelong, monogamous bonds, with the loyal superstars including beavers, wolves and bats.’
“Social monogamy is a term referring to creatures that pair up to mate and raise offspring but still have flings. Sexual monogamous pairs mate with only with one partner. So a cheating husband who detours for a romantic romp yet returns home in time to tuck in the kids at night would be considered socially monogamous.” Weeeeell! Fabulous! We’re redefining the terms here. Does this kind of story ever happen when some Republican minister is discovered to be flitting around with a man or woman?
Does this kind of story ever happen? Do we ever get one of these, say, after Bob Livingston says that he’s not going to accept a speakership because he had an affair? Do we ever get stories like this saying, “Fine! As long as he got home to tuck in the kids, there’s no problem. He’s still monogamous.” No, my friends, we don’t get those kinds of stories.
It’s only after these Democrats get involved. Snerdley, do you realize the great thing this thing has been for manhood, this story? This story has lifelong application for all of us guys, thanks to Eliot Spitzer and David Paterson. Just keep a copy of this story in your pocket, go out there to a prostitute or whatever. Go out there and do whatever, and then when you’re called on it, say, “No, no, no! Look, science says I’m still monogamous, and science says that global warming is happening, and you believe that, Honey.”
TODD: So the flipping of society was in a mere infant stage then.
