  It's all about status

Always fun to watch Satanists fighting. Especially instructive when the fight reveals their true motives.

It's never about "rights" or "morality" or "discrimination" or any of that atrocious tyrannical evil monstershit. Those are just weapons, avatars in the symbolic battle. Down deep it's always about status. Coolness. Hipness. Richness. Fame. Kardashianity.

This little fight shows it cleanly because the dispute itself involves nothing more than raw COOLNESS. Only indirectly about power or money; directly about status.
The new flare up was prompted by comments from Karen Crouse, widely respected golf reporter for the New York Times. She has written forcefully about the shame that hangs over the Masters tournament by dint of its association with Augusta, the Georgia club that over its 80-year history has never agreed to take any women members.

But it seems that in the New York Times's Manhattan offices, to write forcefully about the subject is one thing, to speak publicly about how you would boycott the event quite another.

On Thursday, golf.com published an interview with Crouse in which she said: "If it were left to me, which it seldom is in the power structure of writer versus editor, I'd probably not come cover this event again until there is a woman member. More and more, the lack of a woman member is just a blue elephant in the room."

When Associated Press contacted the New York Times's sports editor, Joe Sexton, for his reaction, he slapped Crouse down, saying her comments were "completely inappropriate and she has been spoken to."

Golf is absolutely nothing but status. It's not a real sport or real exercise, it's pure conspicuous consumption. Along with Havana cigars and Gulfstream jets, golf is a quantitative statement that you're able to burn billions of dollars for no possible purpose.

Crouse made the mistake of believing that his or her particular status point was still the most important. Nope. Friedanism is no longer at the top of Satan's official totem pole. It has been replaced by hoodies and Trayvon.

If a private golf club banned a member for wearing a hoodie, the NYTimes wouldn't have to jump into the fray at all; FBI would send an elite assassination team to take out all members of the club and all members of their families, yea unto the seventh times seventh times seventh times seventh generation, bomb the club's "compound" down to the liquid mantle of the earth, and wipe out all records and memories of the existence of the organization. FBI doesn't miss a detail when you commit heresy against this week's top Satan-status.

= = = = =

Later: Another nice indication that hoodie be at the top of the pole now. Derbyshire spoke the absolute plain truth about hoodie at Takimag. Now Judas Review Online has issued a strict and official denial and abjuration of truth, vigorously stroking Satan's erect totem pole as always. Not surprising for JRO; they refuse truth every time it's offered. Still, rather neatly apposite on Good Friday.
