Titania McGrath: satire in the age of social justice

430 Áhorf 44 þ.

‘Humour is a weapon of the patriarchy.’ So says Titania McGrath, the Twitter superstar who describes herself as an activist, healer and radical intersectionalist poet. Titania has become famous for her ‘woke’ words of wisdom. Titania is of course fictional - a satirical character dreamt up by author and comedian Andrew Doyle. In this engaging conversation with Ella Whelan, filmed at the Battle of Ideas festival, Andrew Doyle discusses life as Titania, conformism and more.

    "Where does this literal-mindedness come from?" It's a post-adolescant cognitive surge along the autistic spectrum, that I suspect is a self-instigated coping mechanism against the onset of BPD. I just blurted that out. I think it needs scrutiny but I stand by it, for now. To put it another way... It's like a Vulcan, trying to be hyperanalytical while battling against being in a perpetual state of Pon Farr. Personally, it seems like they're shit-scared of sex and sexuality, so they try to be strictly analytical - which, to them, is the least sexual (or primal) in nature. They disregard the comical alternative perspectives. It's black and white thinking.

    To the lass who asked whether it really was "cancel culture" or whether it was "just holding people accountable for their actions": It's fucking cancel culture. You don't hold people accountable for their actions by dehumanising them, getting them sacked by attempting to "shame" their employers into sacking them, getting their banks to close their accounts, shaming their local electricity, gas, water companies into refusing to deal with them, and getting them banned by the same method from all their local supermarkets. THAT is cancel culture, the kind of typical utter cuntery the insane ideologically corrupt braindead robot antifa arsewipe pathetic anti-empathetic extreme leftist retards do all the time.

    Issue with jokes inciting behaviour is conflating correlation and causation. The people who act violently after a comedian makes a joke that, if taken literally, would be an incitement, would have acted violently anyways, they just use the joke as excuse...or rather, critics claim that as reason.

    *Several Quranic verses state that some revelations have been abrogated and superseded by later revelations*, and narrations from Muhammad's companions mention abrogated verses or rulings of the religion. *The principle of abrogation of an older verse by a new verse in the Quran, or within the Hadiths is an accepted principle of all four Sunni maḏāhib or schools, and was an established principle in Sharia by at least the 9th century* (though since the 19th century, modernist and Islamist scholars have argued against the concept of naskh, defending the absolute validity of the Qu the Quran was put together and most importantly the events in Mohammeds life at this time. *The quran is book consisting of 114 chapters and it’s very poorly formatted and arranged non chronologically from highest to lowest chapter size*. to understand Quran you need to study hadith the life of prophet and when you study the life of prophet we can *piece the Quran together according to certified Islamic chronology, and we see that the former ‘Meccan’ verses are poetic, peaceful and rational in nature. While the latter ‘Medinan’ verses are aggressive, militant, intolerant, punitive and legislative* - otherwise known as the “sword verses.” one may ask why did abrogation occur the reason is when you look at the history when Mohmmad was proselytizing Islam in mecca he got only few followers and many meccans rejected his prophecy's and witnessed growing animosity between the meccans and muslims, so Muhammad and his followers flee to Medina, for building poltical alliances, and also paving the way for Muhammad's metamorphosis from a preacher to a political and military leader and turning islam into expansionary, military-political ideology that persists to this day. *The Quran itself lays out the principle of abrogation:* *<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="130">2:10</a>**6. Whatever a Verse (revelation) do We {Allah} abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring a better one or similar to it. Know you not that Allah is able to do all things?* let me show you *example of some Meccan verse* <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="3045">50:45</a>. We know of best what they say; and you (O Muhammad) are not a tyrant over them (to force them to Belief). But warn by the Qur’an, him who fears My Threat. 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="541">09:1</a>. Say (O Muhammad to these Mushrikun and Kafirun): “O Al-Kafirun (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His Angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadar {divine foreordainment and sustaining of all things}, etc.)! 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="542">09:2</a>. “I worship not that which you worship, 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="543">09:3</a>. “Nor will you worship that which I worship. 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="544">09:4</a>. “And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping. 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="545">09:5</a>. “Nor will you worship that which I worship. 1<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="546">09:6</a>. “To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism).” Then there is this *passage revealed just after the Muslims reached Medina and were still vulnerable:* <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="145">2:25</a>6. There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Taghut {idolatry} and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. In contrast, take <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="545">9:5</a>, *commonly referred to as the “Verse of the Sword”, revealed toward the end of Muhammad’s life:* <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="545">9:5</a>. Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun {unbelievers} wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat {the Islamic ritual prayers}), and give Zakat {alms}, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Having been revealed later in Muhammad’s life than <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="3045">50:45</a>, 109, and <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="145">2:25</a>6, the Verse of the Sword abrogates their peaceful injunctions in accordance with <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="130">2:10</a>6. Sura 8, revealed shortly before Sura 9, reveals a similar theme: <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="519">8:39</a>. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="486">8:6</a>7. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allah desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="569">9:29</a>. Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="573">9:33</a>. It is He {Allah} Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it). *Knowledge is power, we in the west are weak when it comes to the knowledge and understanding of Islam. Only when the west has the courage to educate itself and then confront the toxic ideology that is islam, only then will the west stop misreading the Quran, continually issueimg slam a "free pass'' and stop using the embarrassing misdiagnosis that "Islam is the religion of peace", will society see any REAL progress between Muslim and non Muslim people in the west and across the globe.* BUT ITS GOTTA START WITH CRISTICISMS OF ISLAMIC IDEOLOGY IN THE WEST, IT CANNOT BE PROTECTED.

    He doesn't know why this SJW explosion is happening ? Try reading Helena Blavatsky and other occultists who talk about bringing in a New Age. Then read about the CIA and it's culture creation projects and their mind control experiments. Then read books by numerous elitists who talk about breaking down Western Christian values. Read about Marxism and how the communists have been attacking our culture for over 100 years. There should be no mystery as to why this is happening. Ultimately it's all about that eye on the top of the pyramid. Ordo Ab Chao.

    My definition of ‘WOKE.' A recently identified psychological condition characterised by a malfunction of an individual’s offence detectors, resulting in a pathological hypersensitivity to the thoughts, statements, actions and feelings of those who have a propensity to think what they like, say what they think and tell the truth. The condition is most prevalent in those of a left-wing/liberal persuasion who find reality hard to bear and who are deluded into believing that their particular view of the world is correct. Examples of the condition can frequently be found among academics in the Liberal/Arts, students, journalists, actors, pop-stars socialist-politicians, serving police officers, the judiciary and most of the main stream media.

    As a liberal I have a particular dislike of the hypersensitive, identity politics obsessed contingent of the left, and I think there's a lot of satirical gold to be mined there. But the Titania McGrath thing is missed opportunity. It's just not funny because there's no lightness of touch, there are no actual jokes. Also, I feel like Doyle himself is doing this thing that's typical of political commentators on the right: mashing together the hypersensitive left with the truly liberal left to create a distrust of the left as a whole.

    In the '00's I studied Portuguese, and during a course on post colonial literature, the professor (the head of the faculty) was commenting on a picture taken during the Portuguese colonial wars. It showed Portuguese soldiers with captured fighters. The way one soldier held his weapon, was presented by the professor, as a sign of racism. A student from N-Ireland stood up, and told him, that he had seen this in N-Ireland, and this was actualy a safety measure. That moment showed me, how anyone can see what they want to see.

    The left went down hill after they accepted the alphabet soup people and the transcult. Pure Fascism from them.

      It's actually the religious non critical acceptance of feminism.

    I am convinced that woke culture gave us Donald Trump, as well as working class people who vote against their own interest. The woke is to the left what the evangelicals are to the right.

      @hooterville2 worst of all there are real issues facing society and they've been hijacked and weaponized by a few lunatics on the far left and the far right.

      @Pie Face me too..i am a pro gay rights atheist 'liberal' ... i am far less threatened by Trump than the current alternatives on the 'left'.

      I would have identified as more less left leaning but all this has pushed me and millions of others further to the right.

      Voting for Trump is voting in the best interest of working people...certainly compared to the alternative.

    The main thing in all interactions is what is in our heart. Words come second. We human beings have both compassion and hatred inside us. We can't access the Compassionate mind without first facing down our own hatefulness. These PC people have not searched in their hearts and instead of facing the darkness inside they are just blindly projecting onto others - a recipe for disaster

    "I don't understand this", is what I'm hearing a lot. You can understand it. Let me explain by use of a metaphor: imagine you are talking to an anorexic person. Do you think you are able to convince them that they're really not fat? With logic or with facts? Do you think they would understand an obvious joke about their weight or misrepresent it and take it very seriously? People who are very emotionally invested in their self image, warped as though it may seem, really do not see logic or understand jokes if it touches upon their particular area of sensitivity. They just don't. To defy logic even to the point of self-destruction. Most of them not deliberately, but because the emotional rewards of following their vision or philosophy keeps them afloat. It allows them to feel in control and not victimized. If you think about it, it is not that hard to understand. It is perhaps the more difficult question: how did this come about and why are so many people, especially in media, feel attracted to this source of emotional stability and control.

    That insight after <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="72">1:12</a>:29 is on point. Class consciousness and woke are mutually exclusive

    So, the SJW crowd are patronizing, presumptuous, condescending, intolerant, ridiculously smug virtue signalling bullies who run around calling other people who merely disagree with them racists, homophobes, nazis and fascists while intolerantly demanding that everyone else accept their ideology, **but** according to Andrew most of them still have good intentions? Um.. Sorry, but something about that equation doesn't add up. Thugs by definition are not operating from good intent.

      @nuffsed wokeness is essentially feminism without any constraints imposed by reality. I think infantile is correct....in fact, they essentially ask to be treated like children.

      @Merdaneth Ubar-Sarum i would call someone with an eating disorder mentally ill--which is not an insult. And you're probably right about infantile, it's suggestive of something benign which wokism is not. I understand the impulse, in my youth i took part in marches and signed petitions. What i never did was try to destroy those that disagreed with me or call them names that would have spoke volumes about my intelligence and nothing about their beliefs.

      I don't know if that is a fair representation. Many people don't choose to become 'woke', they simply feel that it is the best answer to their emotional troubles. You don't call people with an eating disorder 'infantile', even though their view of certain aspects of the world is at odds with facts, logic and common sense.

    The worst thing about trying to satirize the Woke is that they take it as advice on what to push forward next.
