3 times Ben Shapiro has been more progressive than the “left”

#1. Ben Shapiro v. The Young Turks on women in combat

Here is the ultra progressive’s The Young Turks (TYT) Ana Kasparian talking shit on women in combat. Her body language and her tone of voice really shocked me, as I was a huge TYT follower. The fact that they talk about this and could not find 1 female Marine. Ana goes on to say she’s “really happy” that one white male veteran “Wes” that has never been in combat, serving as the token veteran is on the panel is even more pathetic. Granted she said if the test done by the Marine Corps. indicate that if women can not do the same as men, then they shouldn’t be fighting on the front lines. Ana and TYT failed to bring up the fact that THERE ARE WOMEN PASSING THESE TESTS AND KICKING ASS. It was a shitty answer on TYT’s part, but that’s just the true nature of these fake PC slowly bleeding through. Cenk continues to basically say the Marines could be letting women in to just ‘make it work.’ Basically saying the most elite fighting force in the world is letting women in to be ‘politically correct.’ Wes then goes onto his anecdotal talking shit about women falling out of a forced march, as if his biases equate to science.

Here is what big bad scary conservative Ben Shapiro said when an audience member asked Shapiro if women should be allowed into the special forces.

“My view on women in the special forces, is that there is a standard to get into the special forces and if they made that they should serve.” Short & sweet…

Ben also came back with the icing in the cake, “First of all–I’m not in personally any sort of position to tell anybody who can serve  and who [cant]. I was not brave enough to do so. —So I don’t get to talk about that.” Shapiro basically said, as long as they can do it let ’em.

Granted this TYT video is 3 years old it still doesn’t take away the fact that Ana and their goons said it. Who explained it better?

#2  Professionalism

Remember the time Ana threw a low blow at Alex Jones? Pepperidge Farms remembers…

Yes you read that right the leftist online media channel, The Young Turks–the most progressive mindset in America are still hung up on chunkier people, and yes you can fat shame a man just like you can fat shame a woman. It hurts, could you imagine if Alex Jones said that to Ana from TYT?

Now before you talk ish, yes Ben has been very steadfast in his views of unhealthy lifestyles. Being overweight is not beautiful its dangerous this is just common sense. However, you will find no video of Ben calling someone a “fat f*#k”

#3 Genocide denial

The Armenian genocide was the first genocide of the 20th century that tallied over 1.5 million people killed or dislocated from their homes.When TYT’s founder Cenk Uygur was in college, he wrote an article denying that the Armenian genocide happened.The article Cenk wrote was published by Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and to further his position, Cenk even sent a Letter To The Editor to Salon.com in 1999 saying because there are no “non-Armenian scholars,” saying this was in fact a genocide;

“As far as I could see from the article, every non-Armenian scholar in the field
believes it is an open question whether this event was a genocide.” –Cenk Uygur

Now surely Ben Shapiro (a jewish American cis gender man) will have some dirt on him regarding the Armenian (AND ANY) genocide…

Shapiro is a breathe of fresh air and, although I do NOT agree with everything he says (mainly his views on gender dysphoria) I can still respect his honesty and his integrity.

Nergal Please! Slayer’s final world tour falls short in U.S. cities

Slayer_Instagram_Summer2017Tour.jpgUPDATE! The metal gods have heard our cries and have added a shit ton of U.S. dates! all is well!

 
On January 22, Slayer announced End of Days their final world tour. This is not a bag on Slayer they have been true to their music since their first debut Show No Mercy over 30 years ago, and after losing Jeff Hanneman, I saw this coming. Now having Christ Illusions album cover tattooed on my arm and having never seen Slayer, I felt it is my obligation to make this show count (I know what a poser). Especially with this line-up, legendary Satanist Behemoth and old school thrashers Anthrax, this is the show to end all shows. That was until I saw the tour dates, then my wheels came to a screeching halt. The tour dates consist of California, Canada, the east coast and Texas. No Las Vegas, no Denver, no New Orleans                                        and worse—no Salt Lake City.

I know Slayer has reigned in SL, UT quite a few times before. But with a couple stints in rehab…and the Marine Corps., I’ve missed them every time.

The Upside;
It’s been three weeks since the announcement, Slayer could add more cities. Bands do this, depended on booking agent or venues some times spots open up. Also this tour is set for early summer so a girl can dream, can’t she?
The Down(ish)side; what ’till you see the ticket prices!
Pit tickets in depending on where you go run from $700-$2000, more than what I paid to see Sabbath 3 rows back  San Diego is a joke you cant even buy pit tickets. I wanted to take my bro for his birthday present he and I will never forget, looks like the best is Sacramento because of the park size all tickets are $55. I have seen Poland’s favorite Satanists before, but my brother hasn’t and this would be an epic treat, for the both of us.

Growing up in Utah non LDS.

Growing up in Utah as a non-LDS lesbian woman by OddOneOut.

Clay C*****, my best friend. I’ll never forget this kid, he was my first best friend and we were best friends for 4 years. I was a tom-boy (like every lesbo claims) growing up, football and basketball was life. I played b-ball for 12 hours a day, only breaking to eat and use the restroom. I wasn’t only good for a girl, I was good all around. You can bet that on the schools playground court I was always team captain, sinking jump shots and 3’s and barely being 5 feet tall at the age of 8.

Then, on to the slightly sloped grass field we used as football field, with my #26 Woodson Pittsburgh Steelers jersey, firing off first downs and touch down passes. Concocting plays during time-outs with blades of crab grass and tiny rocks, and absolutely loosing it when they worked! Dog hooks and hail Mary’s, who said you can’t learn anything from video games? Sports were my life, as they were for my best friend, Clay.

Clay was a lean not so mean, hardcore ‘cheesehead’ (packers fan) this was when Brett Farve was blowing up the NFL…before the Wranglers commercials. Clay often ran home crying to his mother if he got tackled to hard, if he missed a catch or a play….shit he ran home and cried if he lost a game. This was almost every day during the summer he was very sensitive, he was the biggest pussy on the planet, but still he was my bff. Clay lived with his mother, an obese mormon house wife that always smelled like ear wax, and his older brother Sean. Sean constantly had a nasty nose infection, it wasn’t uncommon to see green froth coming out of one of his nostrils. It was disgusting, because he never blew his nose, or wiped it.

Clay’s father was a cop for the WVC Police Department, he wasn’t around too much because Clay’s parents split, I can’t tell you why. We were kids, as heartbreaking that was for Clay we still remained light-hearted together. This was at the time my dad was still alive, life was full of endless possibilities as long as you have your best friend by your side.

The C*****’s were (and probably to this day still are) very dedicated members of the LDS church. The worst day as a kid for me was a sunday, because I knew Clay couldn’t even watch T.V. let alone play catch, it was their sabbath. My mother and his mother did NOT like each other, Clay’s mother (we’ll call her) ‘Karen’ always thought she was better than everyone who wasn’t LDS, yes she was one of those. They exist, every religion has them, they walk around with their noses in the air, they don’t talk to you at all only when the absolutely have to, and when they do they never look you in the eye. As if their souls would burst into flames if they ever conversed with you, a “non-believer”.

I won’t go into the history of my family, but I will tell you this. Not a single person in my family fathers side and mothers side are mormon. Not a 1! Mom was born in Detroit,to a tough german man and a beautiful Portuguese woman, and dad was born in Rose Park UT, with roots from NM and Mexico. You don’t need to use your imagination to understand that we were the most un-mormon family in the MOST mormon state…but that never bothered me. I like everyone (at that age right?), no problems with anyone. Race, religion, vegan, meat-eater, nerd, jock, gay, straight I just wanted some one to play sports with, and so did Clay. We fit together like 2 peas in a pod.

Until one day I called up Clay from my LAN line NOT CORDLESS phone (millennial’s will never appreciate communication), he answered and sounded awkward, like he was in trouble. You know that tone when you are kid, stuttering. Before I could fire off with ‘hey when are we gonna play ball?’ Clay responded,  “my mom said I can’t hang out with you anymore”. I didn’t say anything, I was so confused I quickly hung up the phone and cried like a baby.

I thought over in my head, “what did I do? what did I say?” I blamed myself briefly because I thought it was because of me. I was the reason his mother didn’t like me. Clay being the pussy momma’s boy he was, would never disobey her. It’s not like he couldn’t have just said “ok mom” and turned around and disregarded her. I mean she was morbidly obese she never left the house except for church and to get groceries.

I played by myself after that, my favorite thing to do was throw a football or soft ball onto the roof and have it roll back to me, (yeah I know pathetic, I played catch by myself). I went on too learn how to skateboard and made other friends, Eventually the C****’s moved. I still don’t know what ever happened to them, it was very weird because I didn’t think they would ever move out of Utah, I at least expected to see Clay in high school, or JR high but no I never saw him once they moved. Even today with the technology of dredging up the past, a simple Facebook search fails to show a Clay blank. Its worth mentioning that after I graduated high school, I left home at age 18 for the United States Marines, and the rest is history. I don’t like to talk about my service, in fact I hate hearing war stories from anyone to be honest.

I write this looking back now laughing about it, but I also write this feeling melancholy for the little 7-year-old me. That once was a rough and tumble tom-boy (still a tom-boy :), just looking for a friend. Even today I dream of being social, having many friends, always having plans, always having someone over my house hanging out. I dream of being social butterfly, being famous for having friends. If you know the real me maybe thats what you think, working in ‘radio bizz’ helps keep me out of the house, out of the shadows. But the reality is, ever since I lost Clay, and being constantly moved around in the Marines, from unit to unit and being moved away from my guys in Iraq…. I have never felt I belonged anywhere.

 

I am a black sheep for eternity.

The honest ugly truth about heartbreak.

When you’re heartbroken you don’t want to see anybody happy, you want to see people broken, sad. You want to see failed marriages, you want to see the’I just got back from my honeymoon in Amsterdam’ guy a few months later drunk posting on Facebook about what a bitch his ex-wife is and how he’s not gonna let her win the custody battle, and she’s not going to get shit from him if she does.

You want to see posts from the ‘I just lost my girlfriend to his best friend’ guy, you want to see the ‘I’m estranged from my wife, who cheated on me when I was in Afghanistan with some frumpy every man’ guy. It’s fucked up, it’s evil, but it’s true. At least you wouldn’t be alone with those people, at least those people–are honest.

That’s what you want to see, you don’t want to see pictures of couples, or kids, you would rather see pictures of food, or people’s beloved dogs or some hot chicks painfully PAINFULLY average looking cat. Rather that than someones snobby kids. When you’re heartbroken, that’s what you want to see.

But when you’re heartbroken, everybody seems to be in a relationship, everybody seems to be happily married, or just married. when you’re heartbroken you are literally the only single friend in your group of friends. And they’re always asking you to go out with them, but you can’t stomach their significant other, or you just can’t stomach them anymore. Because they have become the same person. They wear matching clothes, the have shared bank accounts so they constantly go over what their budget is for the ‘night out’, which consists of getting drunk at an Applebee’s and then maybe desert…such a wild night! *Insert sarcasm*

When you’re heartbroken you have a pre-conceived notion in your mind that you are the only person that’s heartbroken, you hope that your ex is as broken as you are, but in your heart you know they couldn’t possibly be as low as you are. You’re the only person that’s unhappy with your life, you are a fat disgusting slob, that will die alone most likely from self-inflicted wounds. And every month that passes, only affirms that.

Me?  I’m past that stage, this was all of 2016 for me. All it took was one night at a New Year’s eve party, watching my best friends lesbian sister cheat on her girlfriend,with a butter-faced 19-year-old, for me to realize that love is never final. And love is not always the answer to all of our problems, just like OxyContin wasn’t the answer for all of my problems back in ’09.

I’ve only felt passion two times in my life. Once in the fifth grade playing basketball, for 10 hours a day every day seven days a week I went from ‘Shelly belly’ to the pre teen girl that my Mormon neighbors wouldn’t make funny of anymore. I eat slept breathe basketball and I honestly thought people like WNBA how could I have been so naïve I was a complete lezbo at that age and I didn’t even know it.

The other time I felt passion was in the desert where the air smelled like hot burning garbage and the average temperature was around 120-130°F. Where everyone spoke Arabic and drove white shitty little Toyotas and drank chia no matter how sweltering it was outside. It was a place that often times didn’t have running water didn’t have the Internet sometimes not even electricity and if you did find a bathroom it was the squat shitters. In Iraq some people call them floor urinals, much like you see in Japan. It’s basically a floor toilet that you squat down and Pee or shit into. Yep that was the place I have truly found what I thought I was going to do for the rest of my life but only ended up doing for the seven months I was out there.

Aside from burning shit (literally) when I pissed off my superiors, I helped the Dep. of Defense (DOD) conduct Rule of Law surveys, the only reason I was allowed to go on these missions is because I was a female and male coalition members were forbidden to touch or talk to women. Because they would be disowned by their husband and possibly killed, and frankly when we did this we would get shot at or mortared. Piss off an entire village it does come back to you, you are not exempt in a third world country, they have their own kind of justice.
Those are the only two times I felt passion for what I did. One was a child, and one was a childish 20-something year-old. But when you’re in love with what you do you don’t care that you’re not in love with another person, that doesn’t bother you. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I really need therapy.

 

No but seriously. Anyone that agrees please let me know. What was your first passion? Are you currently in a career that you absolutely love? Once you find a career or line of work that is your calling, all that “love” shit falls in place later.

Mayor Biskupski responds to Trumps immigration order; “I will not do it at the expense of the people who live here.”

Thousands of Utahns showed up in mass numbers their message. “Refugees are welcome here.” Those in attendance were born and raised in the U.S., others were refugees themselves. Protestors marched on Utah Capitol this afternoon to stand in solidarity with those that will be effected by President Trumps new executive order. Among the attendees on Saturday, Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski came out in support against the order. “It is my duty and honor to protect this beautiful legacy [immigration], and I will. –I can build a working relationship with the current administration back in D.C., but I will not do it at the expense of the people who live here,” said Mayor Biskupski.

The executive order announced by President Trump on January 27, enacts a temporary ban on seven predominately Islamic countries. Some are calling it racists, “Fear is a very poor motivator, we need to reach out and be compassionate,” said one protester (who did not want to identify herself), “we are repeating stuff… and we know better.”

The real question is who’s policy is it anyway? A statement from President Trump;

My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.

What Happened to 94.9 The Vibe?

the-vibe

I started an internship at Cumulus Media awhile back, I have had more fun at that job than any other in my 30 years of living on this planet. Radio personalities and DJ’s are like no other people you will ever meet. Sincere, caring, unique and their talents are in my opinion over looked.

kenz_logo

I went into work last weekend and was approached by one of the DJ’s that represented The Vibe, that’s when the news hit me, (granted it was late news). This person told me that, without any notice the station changed over night to pop format. They weren’t given so much as a warning, a memo, nothing!
http://www.allaccess.com/net-news/archive/story/162052/kenz-94-9-the-vibe-salt-lake-city-flips-to-top-40-

Everyone on desk-jockey side (see what I did there ;), the higher ups, the promotions employees, they all knew this was coming down –except for 94.9’s DJ’s themselves. The person (my source) who I cannot reveal their name at this time was hurt, I could see it in their eyes, hurt that a station which was their lives work changed so quickly over night into another top 40 station.. Now why would the only classic hip hop station in Utah switch to pop? Now the only “rap” station around is U92. If I was a business owner, this wouldn’t make sense. Why give up the one only prominent hip hop FM stations in the state? After asking around (other DJ’s from other stations), I found out the ratings for 94.9 The Vibe were NOT doing good. Over the first few quarters great, then they just dropped, and never recovered. *I havent seen any evidence to support that claim*

94.9 The Vibes Facebook page blew up almost immediately, mostly with confusion and frustration. No press release, no explanation, no memo not even a Facebook post from Cumulus Salt Lake.

“Without handing everyone our playbook, I think listeners will feel very quickly the difference between POWER 94.9 and every other station in SALT LAKE CITY – and love what they hear.” -RICK VAUGHN Cumulus Salt Lake

Clearly there was a reason for the change, but who was in charge of the transition? The hispanic population is the fastest growing population in the US, not only that but nearly 3,000 people of Tongan descent live in Salt Lake City alone (2011). Classic hip hop catered to these communities, now with a very large hole to fill who will step up to the plate? One things for sure U92 is reaping the benefits of being the ONLY hip-hop/rap station in Utah.

Hundreds gather at SLC INT’ Airport to rally against Pres. Trump executive order

oddoneout

Saturday night at the Salt Lake international airport, was busier than usual. Hundred of protestors gathered in terminal two to demonstrate a fair immigration sit in. The rally is held after Trump signed an executive order Friday afternoon, that bans all immigrants and visa holders from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the US for 90 days.

“It’s completely counter [the executive order] to everything the US stands for,” said Kim Gabbitas the demonstration organizer, “its showing we are losing our faith in democracy.” Gabbitas and Hanna Morra (organizer of demonstration) stayed to the very end with a megaphone allowing participants to speak and share their thoughts on the immigration order.

Sophia Hawes the first transgender candidate  for the Mayor of Midvale city was the only political (or somewhat political) figure in attendance,”I believe every voice needs to be heard, whether it’s muslim, native american, women [and] LGBT voices”. Hawes continued, “Are any of your elected officials here?” In which Hawes was correct, all Utah elected officials seemed to be MIA in this demonstration.
