Video: Scruton on Harry Potter

You let Rowling off way too fucking lightly.

Who do you think made Millennials such insufferable cunts?

Nobody really mocks her.

She’s so ripe for it.

She’s like reverse Trump, a billionaire who earned nothing, sucked up alimony while writing in her friend’s wine bar (don’t we ALL have a friend who owns an upmarket trendy wine bar?) and won’t stop sticking her oar into politics.

At least Trump ran for office.
Run for office or STFU.

She was in the news for years with bollocky right-on lefty tweets, Trump picked up her formula.

Here’s a fun word for her

By the way, if you want a common sense philosophical academic to idealise, Sir Scruton is a class act. A truly living legend. No idealisation is necessary. Peterson would be his apprentice, and he’d be happy to be.

Mealy-mouthed appeals to Love replaced God at Hogwarts, Dumbledore gave soapbox speeches on it to the Serpentine Satan figure. The love of cupboard-lovers is worthless. Their ties are convenient and weak.

The “wizarding world” is typified by gullible idiots like Mr Weasley, who was due to die originally. They side with the invaders to their vulnerable society against one of the few people intelligent enough, after knowing the Muggle threat from WW2, to try and protect them. Like Native American reservations. Ollivander called Voldemort great. Tell me, if the wizarding world was set to die without the invasion, why did the Muggleborns care? The most obnoxious characters like the Mary Sue Hermione are traits you are meant to grow out of, she is totally ignorant and dismissive of key wizarding beliefs e.g. divination, because in a tantrum, she fails to understand them. She had a home to return to. What about Ron? Everyone forgets Ron. Harry was already an orphan but Ron is the typical wizard, dull and unethical about his powers. Hermione frequently verbally abuses him for existing. Pureblood privilege? Yet he marries her in a classic case of long-term abuse victims falling to pathological altruism. Hermione is a conqueror, an interloper nobody liked in the first book, a cultural appropriater par excellence, who wishes to steal what parts of wizarding culture she likes, to combine it with her own, still loyal elsewhere to the group which killed these people, and to discard the parts she is too stupid to understand, as if she has any right. If the options are to die without the likes of Hermione (who becomes their political leader in pure Sue fashion) or to lose anything their new conquerors find too traditional, aren’t they already dead? Who disgraces the name of wizard/witch, but Hermione?

Can you really rip off an entire culture from reading books for a few years, let alone lead it?

She’s a dirty weeb. Mudblood indeed.

In Cursed Child, you know she’d be a frequent torture victim as a spy, not a teacher.

The SPEW plot is a key example of category error, she fails to acknowledge house elves are not human, they are Plato’s natural slaves. They are symbiotes to the wizarding world and keeping animals down in their place is something humans do. Imagine giving tigers freedom to roam around humans. That’s like giving a goblin a wand. She is dangerously retarded, slow to understand the differences have reasons. Wizards are lazy because their functional structure means they can afford to be.
At best, house elves had the minds of children (yes, like her) and we carefully supervise what intellectually disabled people are allowed to do or work on in this world. Silly little girl. Capricious and arrogant, all Snape had to do was let her drink a fatally flawed potion of her own making, because Her Way is the Right Way. Imagine atheistkult meets WOW.

She complains about seeing the future because she is more of an inept dullard than Ron at it, but the bitch can travel through time!

How is that sheer level of ignorance even possible in a fantasy book for kids?

In Rowling’s world, the physical weakness of laziness, is the ultimate power. Scream your feelings until what you want happens, by magic. No sweat required, even dying involves no bloodshed.

Bear in mind, the witch trials happened, and it was effectively a genocide of women, with a focus on the elder crone-types and intelligent herbalists. Where are they now?

As I said before, Rowling is an Ultracrepidarian.

A polite term for speaking out of her place.

Who ripped off the Worst Witch, the first famous British story about a magic school.

You want to redpill Millennials?
Expose Rowling. Make it a meme. Never let it go.

Fun fact: aside from the overtly sexist switching of female characters to male that made HP popular and the overtly racist Brit-only hiring policy, Chris Coulson’s an actor in Harry Potter 2, after being in a Worst Witch sequel series. There may be other overlaps, I cba to check. I know people who worked with him so I’m pretty sure. Worried about typecasting.

For meme material, I humbly suggest

He’s selling the shit out of that tambourine. HP only got Jarvis Cocker.
