Camille Paglia: The Crafty Clinton Machine Sent Trump To Destroy The GOP

“What’s with the carpet-bombing Don Rickles routine? Does Trump have any facial expression beyond knotted, squinting scowl? It’s a strain even to look at him. The entire debate begins with Trump getting booed for refusing to rule out a third-party bid. He has a slashing, entertaining wit, but his braggart narcissism is on painful display. He speaks in simplistic polarities ...

Scott Lively Denounces Homocons

“Our embrace of people like Tammy Bruce and Camille Paglia (as brilliant as the latter may be to quote on feminist issues) is the ‘synthesis’ phase of the Hegelian dialectic and poisonous to our theology and agenda. The rise of ‘conservative’ homosexuals is a ruse to sucker us into endorsing ‘gay rights’ in a slightly different form. Think about it ...

Quote Of The Day – Camille Pagia

“As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s. A governor with executive experience would be ideal. It’s time to put my baby-boom generation out to pasture! We’ve had our day and managed to muck up a hell of a lot. It remains baffling how ...

Quote Of The Day – Camille Paglia

“To me, Elizabeth Taylor’s importance as an actress was that she represented a kind of womanliness that is now completely impossible to find on the U.S. or U.K. screen. It was rooted in hormonal reality — the vitality of nature. She was single-handedly a living rebuke to postmodernism and post-structuralism, which maintain that gender is merely a social construct. Let ...

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“Despite showing acres of pallid flesh in the fetish-bondage garb of urban prostitution, Gaga isn’t sexy at all – she’s like a gangly marionette or plasticised android. How could a figure so calculated and artificial, so clinical and strangely antiseptic, so stripped of genuine eroticism have become the icon of her generation? Can it be that Gaga represents the exhausted ...

Quote Of The Day – Camille Paglia

“In the discreet white-collar realm, men and women are interchangeable, doing the same, mind-based work. Physicality is suppressed; voices are lowered and gestures curtailed in sanitized office space. Men must neuter themselves, while ambitious women postpone procreation. Androgyny is bewitching in art, but in real life it can lead to stagnation and boredom, which no pill can cure. “Meanwhile, family ...

Camille Paglia: Gay Activists Are Childish

Camille Paglia thinks gay activists shouldn’t be bothering the president at a time when he so many others issues to deal with. She also announces the breakup of her relationship and says she questions whether lesbians are as capable as as gay men in maintaining long-term relationships. “I envy gay men. A fling for a lesbian couple is a betrayal.” ...

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“We may be seeing the first woman president. As a Democrat, I am reeling. That was the best political speech I have ever seen delivered by an American woman politician. Palin is as tough as nails.” – Camille Paglia, responding to Sarah Palin’s first speech after she was introduced by John McCain in Dayton, Ohio.

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“Genuinely disturbing are the caricatures of Hillary (called “Hitlery” or “the Hildebeast” on the web) that rarely accrue to male candidates: she’s portrayed as a hectoring nag, a witch on a broomstick, or a castrating bitch. But if such images were truly generated by simple fear of female power, we would expect to find them around other women politicians too, ...

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“This disarray among Republicans, which may depress voter turnout or even spawn a protest splinter party, offers a fantastic opening to Democrats, if the party can only seize it. The galvanizing energy aroused by Barack Obama’s thrilling coast-to-coast victories gives Democrats a clear shot at regaining the White House. However, the three-faced Hillary, that queen of triangulation, would be a ...

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“Hillary’s willingness to tolerate Bill’s compulsive philandering is a function of her general contempt for men. She distrusts them and feels morally superior to them. Following the pattern of her long-suffering mother, she thinks it is her mission to endure every insult and personal degradation for a higher cause — which, unlike her self-sacrificing mother, she identifies with her near-messianic ...
