Pop culture has plenty of icons, these days. And our recent mass isolations have perhaps set us up for some shocking realities that might not have seemed so stark if we'd been a fully integrated society throughout 2020.
But along with the cloaked morphing of so many fragile and impressionable young people, what is revealed over the past couple weeks is a society of folks who are starved for social acceptance and validation.
I want to turn our attention to the many various motivations for how people are interacting. It's naive to assume that every attendee at a mass riot is motivated by the same internal and external forces. You can clearly see, by how they behave in a large group. It appears that manhood, in it's finest virtues; is not in full demonstration, in Mpls, or any other city where the smoke dissipates and the stores are gutted.
Howie Carr published a humorous & stereotypcal expository list of protestors who won free photoshoots at the local police station after being selected from a group who auditioned at a riot venue.
Nothing says white privilege like going to a college that costs $77,490 a year. Meet Elliot Strassman, 27, of Jamaica Plain. He went to Brown University, and is now charged with breaking and entering of a building in the nighttime for a felony.
Elliot Strassman — perfect name for this pampered little puke. Can you say trust fund? Before he became a street-fighting man, Elliot used to be the music counselor at Camp Starfish in Rindge, N.H. I called him on his cell phone Tuesday.
“I, I, duh, I don’t want to talk to you,” Elliot stammered, and then hung up.
I just wanted to ask Elliot Strassman why he doesn’t have a hyphenated last name like most of the other “men” who go to colleges like Brown. And I wanted to inquire about his man bun, because you know he’s got to have one, if he’s like all the rest of the little punks who got wedgies every day in middle school.
Why are the vast majority of protests led by women, but largely attended by pajama boys? And why are the few violent & rogue operatives quickly taking over the events, turning them into criminal pursuits?
The answer is astonishing! Google listed this set of definitions
If courage is a virtue, then it may be the greatest need when a populist mob of intolerant group-think lemmings are left to their own impulses. Being able to think for yourself and stand for your own values & convictions... That's the mark of courage when a rabid mob has the power to turn on you and devour you, just to virtue-signal their own superiority. Let's got back to Howie Carr's case studies..
Nothing says privilege like going to an all-girls Catholic prep school where the tuition is $53,860 a year. Meet Cadence Stoloski, Class of ’18 at Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart.
Check out Cadence’s graduation photo — nice white dress, which I’ll bet she made herself, and a bouquet of roses. Shoo-in for Miss Congeniality.
Now Cadence is charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon. Sister Barbara must be very proud!
Want to read up on Roshaun Ladouceur-Perry, 28, of Boston? Right now he’s charged with B&E of a building at nighttime for felony. But wait, there’s more. Just check out the website of the Sex Offender Registry Board.
Roshaun is a Level 2 sex offender, convicted in 2013 of indecent A&B on a child over 14, and enticing a child under the age of 16.
Meet Ryan Maloney, a tattooed 33-year-old thug from Winthrop. Larceny from a building and disorderly conduct. He’s come a long way since 2005, when he and a bunch of other white punks were arrested for a racially motivated attack on a black family in Winthrop.
I tried to get that information to Rachael Rollins Tuesday just in case she was planning on brooming Comrade Maloney’s case. He needs to do some jail time just for the tattoos alone.
Another blast from the past, and I do mean blast. Mario Fiume, 31, of Stoneham, is back in the news for B&E of a building at nighttime for a felony. It’s his first brush with the spotlight since this 2013 headline:
“2 people shot, 1 dead in Stoneham home.”
It’s amazing, the shameless politicians falling all over themselves, lionizing these gangbangers, drug dealers, drive-bys, thugs and pajama boys. The hacks even celebrate their arson, among other things, with AG Maura “Hold It” Healey Tuesday saying, “Yes, America is burning. But that’s how forests grow.”
Opening your restaurant, that’s against the law in Massachusetts. Burning down somebody else’s buildings, no problem whatsoever.
You should check out these peaceful protesters on social media. You’ll see nose rings and lower-lip studs (on a Belmont female who goes to Hampshire College — how’s that for a daily double of loserdom?)
The priors of the arrested include A&B on a family member, selling cocaine, leaving the scene of an accident, A&B on a police officer, resisting arrest, domestic violence, pointing a firearm (in Randolph, of all places!) and, worst of all, wearing a man bun.
The man-bun perp would be Jeremiah Lenoch, 28, of Brighton, charged with B&E of a building at nighttime for a felony. Nothing says “beta male” like a man bun — it’s a bigger giveaway than a hyphenated last name or a degree from Brown University.
Eat your heart out, Elliot Strassman.
Out of space, so I can’t discuss Keyshaun Taylor and Shauntee Graham, not to mention Elijahquan Sheffield-Manago, Luxury Lee and Ryonn Finklea. Maybe next peaceful protest.
Nobody at the State House or City Hall cares about this PC crime wave, of course. They’re all still in a state of shock over other recent events, and they’re all asking themselves the same question.
Who could have ever imagined that Bill de Blasio’s daughter would be arrested before Charlie Baker’s son?
I came across an article from social scientist, Andrew Ferebee. His associated publications say he "is a high-performance men’s coach, 3X best selling author, and the founder of the Knowledge for Men podcast."
Here's some of his thoughts..
The Real Definition of the Beta Male: Why Many “Alpha” Men Are Betas in Disguise
To start our conversation, we must dispel the common myths that beta males are always weak, lazy, and romantically hopeless men.
Being a beta male has nothing to do with your physical strength, financial success, or aptitude with women and dating.
These external factors can serve as indicators of whether a man is an alpha or beta, but in and of themselves, they are insufficient to “diagnose” a man entirely as alpha or beta. Because the defining characteristic of a beta male is not their external successes (or lack thereof), but the driving force behind those successes.
By very definition, beta males live their lives based on the values and vision of other people. They seek validation at every turn and because they lack self-reliance and a strong sense of personal identity, they fall into patterns of neediness and approval-seeking behaviors.
They do not believe that they are “enough” as a man and so they desperately seek to prove their worth through any means possible.
Ironically, one of the best examples of covert beta behavior in action is the “classic” alpha male.
A man’s man who seems to have everything figured out. He has a thriving multiple 6-figure career, a sports car, a physique that puts the ancient Spartans to shame, and a stack of cash in the bank.
On the surface, he seems like an alpha male, right? He has all of the outward trappings of success. And most men would kill just to spend a day in his shoes.
But when you look beneath the surface, you find something rather interesting.
Despite his external successes, the man in question is not happy or fulfilled. His life is covertly built entirely on seeking approval from others and every action that he takes is permeated by an unhealthy desire to be ‘liked’ and validated by those around him.
It’s often hard to see, but when you peel back the layers of so-called “alpha males” you’ll often find a scared boy who is trying to prove his worth to others and fill the growing emptiness inside of him with approval and validation.
The question we must always ask ourselves then, is “Why?” Why are you (or any other man) doing the things you do?
Is it because those actions are truly in alignment with your core values and the vision that you have created for your life?
Or is it because you want to prove yourself to others, feel accepted, and hide from the uncomfortable truth that, no matter what external “alpha” successes you have, you feel empty on the inside?
