Participation trophy genius.

Conservatives are in a tizzy over a seemingly innocuous Obamacare ad from Organizing for Action featuring a young man in pajamas.

MSNBC hack Adam Serwer seems to struggle with the meanings of various words, as evidenced throughout this tardy (two days is an eternity in digital media response time) defense of yet another Twitter misfire by the Organizing for Whatever bubble-dwellers. He begins by inaccurately labeling raucous laughter and endless mocking a “tizzy.” Dutifully proceeding from a false premise in MSM fashion, Serwer then begins thought-barfing the kind of emo drivel that is only taken seriously in media circles filled with people who have almost no real-world frame of reference.

How could the sight of an earnest twenty something in pajamas drive so many dashing specimens of unassailable masculinity to complete panic? The paradox of our gender enforcers that they never sound more terrified than when addressing a person who doesn’t fit their standards. It’s an abject terror that masquerades as courage, relying on the reader not to know the difference.

Again, confusion on the part of Serwer. “Gender enforcers” no doubt gets some intellectual and gravitas cred in his limited, navel-gazing universe. In the real world, however, he’s already in “2+2 is whatever you want it to be!” critical thinking territory. (Quick aside: Pajama Boy doesn’t look “earnest” in the ad, he looks thoroughly bored and as if he’s feigning interest.)

A couple more Einsteinian gems from Serwer and then we will get to the truth of the matter, I promise.

Conservatives are calling Pajama Boy a symbol of Obama supporters’ un-American dependence on government, but at this point he’s more of a vehicle for conservatives to express their anxiety about losing wars, political and cultural. For them, Pajama Boy is yet another emblem of an increasingly non-white electorate, a young population that believes in a stronger welfare state, gender equality and LGBT rights. After six years, Obama’s approval is eroding, but most Americans still want an interventionist government to alleviate inequality.

Anxiety! Oh my! Up until now, I had actually been relaxed from having cracked up for two days. It’s always handy to have a leftist around to tell us how we’re really feeling.

If Pajama Boy is truly emblematic of “an increasingly non-white electorate,” the champions of diversity over at OFA surely have someone in-house who is more ethnically rich than Ethan Krupp.

Most of the people who I saw cringing over that ad were WOMEN. We are sick to death of weak wimpy beta males who spend more on spa product than WE do. ALL the women I know, even the gay ones, responding to the ad with a resounding "ICK!"

Dr. Denton's are gay?

Beta males are all gay?

Metrosexuals are gay?

Where is the MSNBC rule book for gay identifying features and race coded words like Obamacare and racist sandwiches like peanut butter and jelly?

Can't they put them down in one place so that we know that hot chocolate is gay and peanut butter and jelly is racist...I wouldn't want to order an offenders lunch.

The hypersensitive Serwer can pick up cues from leftist frequencies that even dog whistles can't match.

I wonder if he can decode this: piss off fraud boy.

"And a grown man wearing one while spending the holidays talking about health insurance is just goofy, despite your cult’s orders to take it oh so seriously."

That's actually the infuriating part of the ad campaign: They are urging their members to be That Guy during the holidays. You know they one: they guy who won't shut up about politics at every gathering and sets out to be confrontational. Might as well go straight to the point and go with the slogan "Help us by being the turd in the punchbowl this year!"

I don't know what Mr. Serwer's smoking. I dislike Pajama Boy because he has the exact same expression as the classmate who told me my USMC brother was a psychopathic warmonger.

Then there's the fact that he's so eager and happy to be dependent on someone else, and has the juvenile jammies to underline his new status as a five-year-old . . . Gosh, who could object to that? I love my parents dearly and would like nothing better than to see them for Christmas, but I still would want them to know that they've raised an adult, not a permanent dependent. It baffles me to see my generation being so all-fired proud of taking handouts.

The whole thing comes down to a lack of irony, or even the existence of irony. Whole cultures have bloomed or failed based on whether their culture embraced the ironic sense or not.
At the height of their civilizations, the following are some examples of irony embracers: USA, UK, Israel, India, Philippines, Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, just to name a few.
Irony haters: Islam, anywhere it has ever been instituted, Communism, anywhere it has ever been instituted, the French, the Germans, any African former colony, because when they return to barbarity, which they all do, they burn whatever trace of irony they ever got from their colonizers.
Irony gives us ways to discuss touchy topics through a screen of sorts This gives us a chance to either accept or reject the argument without making it into a fight.
A culture with irony must have an accepted core of norms in order for the irony to sound like irony and therefore be detectable. If your norms demand chopping off heads of the people you disagree with, irony doesn't stand a chance.
PC does the exact same thing, for exactly the same reasons.

Maybe a collection could be raised to get this guy a cammo onesie and send him done to West Monroe LA for a spell. A sort of "iced tea and hot cocoa" summit. I bet the Robertsons already have a bunch of cammo onesies but doubt they would fit an adult. (Uncle Si might have one though and would be a good enough sport to wear it to make him feel at home.)

The biggest shock in this ad is the supposition that the Leftwing Secularist Obama/Biden regime would even recognize the Christmas holiday.

Family members like pajamaboy are welcome at Christmas because they're family after all but by default they have to sit at the kid's table and aren't allowed in the adult discussions.

Oh, I apologize.

I ridiculed the Hot Stud on another thread earlier; at that time I didn't know his name was "Krupp".

I now know the demographic OFA is attempting to appeal to!

Ever hear of Krupp's of Essen? You know, the armament people who designed the "long 88", probably the most efficient cannon design ever, that made various WW2 German armored vehicles (try the Nashorn AKA "Rhino") so potent?

Oh, fill in the blanks yourselves. The jokes and puns are endless.

Again, who are these morons???

To paraphrase a saying: He can sip his hot cocoa in comfort while he cocoons in his jammies, knowing that rougher men stand watch to preserve his liberty.

"He can sip his hot cocoa in comfort while he cocoons in his jammies, knowing that rougher men stand watch to preserve his liberty."


Not bad, but it needs a tweak. Here, let me fix that for ya:

"He can sip his hot cocoa in comfort while he cocoons in his jammies, completely oblivious to the fact that actual men stand watch to preserve his liberty."


There, that's better!

So true. Rougher women, too, for that matter. He never had a shot at alpha male, but he's now headed much further down the alphabet.
