Joss Whedon, feminism and the politics of enforced obedience

I can’t help being incredibly entertained by the feminist furore over Joss Whedon’s new movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. Radical feminists are foaming at the mouth, apparently because one of the female characters expresses regret that she can’t have children.

What makes it hysterically funny is that the oh so politically correct Whedon should find himself the target of the feminist harpies. Whedon has discovered what many of us have suspected for quite a while. The leftist ideological terror campaign is not directed against conservatives. There are too few conservatives left to matter. The real targets are liberals. The objective is to ensure that liberals understand that henceforth they will live in a constant state of fear - a fear that they’re not liberal enough. Every minor deviation from the party line will be punished relentlessly. Those deemed to be insufficiently zealous social justice warriors will be subjected to show trials by social media. Liberals will be running scared, and that’s the whole point - make people frightened enough and they’ll be easy to control. They'll be docile and obedient.
