Reap what you sow, bitch.

It goes to show you can never be too left, there’s never too left, only more left.

It’s a shame because when I was young I admired her… she was a poor single mom and she lifted herself out of poverty through her own creative imagination and hard work. She inspired me to study hard (one coffee the whole day in a coffee shop pursuing my dream).

And now she’s being canceled by the ungrateful kid actors and people she made possible with her mind, it’s ironic.

I will say though, out of all the ungrateful kids in the HP crew I think Tom Felton (Malloy) is ironically the most based one out of them. I love Tom!

Because Leftism is authoritarianism. Leftism always masks their true intentions with some kind of moral veneer, but that is always a lie.

Doesn't mean the supporters of leftism aren't sometimes believers in "the cause" (whatever that may be), but as is so often obvious - even the "believers" lose their faith the moment they are challenged.

The fake "causes" are often so shallow and half-baked that upon even the smallest bit of scrutiny they fall apart.

I think she got a bit roped into something she never really signed up for. My understanding is that she's always been a very traditional, default feminist. But then she got on Twitter and, without fully understanding the culture she was immersing herself in, started posting fanfare about Dumbledore being gay or whatever.

I could imagine her thinking these were just silly Twitter posts that didn't really mean anything, but of course the rabid fanatical internet cult ran away with it and started posting their own pet theories about how so-and-so is nonbinary and such-and-such is trans. And when she didn't meet their expectations about how every Harry Potter character is queer in some way or another, the inevitable happened.

I think this is exactly what has happened to many on the more sane, center left. They don't realize that the far left have turned into a puritanical, authoritarian, religicult. So they think 'oh that is how you not be racist, that is how you not be sexist or bigotted' and just start taking part in all of these insane things.

When people question the very culty nature of Wokeism and its anti reality tenets of CRT, Queer Theory, and Postcolonial Theory, much of the 'normal left' will go to extremes to defend the far left Woke lunatics because they think 'those are the good people, anyone who questions them is a racist and bigot!"

They've been trojan horsed and they don't even know it.

This was my feeling too. Around the time the series was winding down "slash" or "yaoi" fanfic started becoming a big thing. It's mainly just straight women and girls with a kink for gay porn. (Japanese call them "fujoshi" and you see them frequently made fun of in Anime.)

SJW-ism seemed to give western fujoshis a moral superiority to unite behind. On top of that, more than a few wormed their way into existing animated TV show teams, and suddenly gays and lesbians appeared everywhere. (This is what happened with Legend of Korra and Adventure Time.)

JKR likely innocently thought she was doing these bozos a friendly favor. She made her own bed. Part of me wonders if she'll take that red pill leap of faith.

no, she tried to gaslight the people who read her books, accusing them of being racists for assuming Hermione was black. Fuck her.

Also, 'traditional, default feminists' have always been the same demonic evil left you see now. They are just not bothering to hide this anymore.

LotusEaters with Carl Benjamin covered multiple stories now with old feminists admitting they have been lying to women all along. People who entered journalism business in the 70s confessing to being told to straight up lie and print complete bullshit in their women's journals to manipulate women.

It wasn't fanfare, Dumbledore was gay in the books, it was the retroactive 'updating' of characters a decade later, insisting Hermione can be black, and other woke garbage that made the leftist degenerates think she was on their side.

Rowlings mistake was thinking they can be reasoned with

This. The monster she helped create is turning on her, and I can't help but laugh.

This is the exact phrase that came into my head when I saw the post.
