The Amber Heard result is a bad day for Woke Dogma

Since 2016s #MeToo moment, a coalition of 5th wave feminists, non gender binary activists, Critical Race Theorists and Critical Gender Theorists have manufactured a faith based woke dogma, the holy trinity of which is:

1 – All white people are irredeemable cross burning racists.

2 – All men are rapists.

3 – Everyone defending free speech is a uniform wearing Nazi who hates the Trans Community.

Woven into this woke Identity Politics Holy Trinity, is the ‘BELIEVE ALL WOMEN’ mantra, because intersectionism decrees all men are part of a power dynamic which means they can never be victims and because women are morally superior to toxic masculinity males, they would NEVER lie about that abuse.

Never!

Never ever!

No embellishment! No half-truths! No mistruths! No lying!

Ever!

But because men are all part of the patriarchy, they will always lie.

One of the reason’s why the Heard/Depp case has been so explosive and followed by so many is because it’s a backlash to the extremes of the #MeToo movement.

Heard epitomised the #MeToo movement, after promising the ACLU $3.5m to be their new ambassador, the ACLU pitched the op-ed to The Post and ghostwrote it for her while she made herself the face for domestic violence while destroying Depp’s reputation.

Planning to have all this come out to time with her movie seems a commodification too far.

Heard was the girl who cried wolf when girls crying wolf was culturally rewarded amongst the woke middle class on Twitter.

An example of how out of touch the mainstream media woke gatekeepers and the public are on this issue is in the social media stats.

The TikTok hashtag #IStandWithAmberHeard has amassed more than 8 million views, #JusticeForJohnnyDepp is at 15 billion views.

The woke gatekeepers in the media are now running around trying to make this loss by Heard about everything EXCEPT the woke’s dogma.

Men didn’t fear a witch hunt post MeToo because Harvey Weinstein clearly proved there were monsters out there to hunt, what men feared was a witch trial, and this desire to convict on nothing more than the word of a woman (because women are morally superior to men and would never lie because you know, ‘patriarchy’), is the reason why the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp trial has become the backlash moment it’s exploded into.

Will this be a moment of pause and reflection by the woke regarding their alienating dogma?

Fuck no! As the Santamaria case shows us, the Lynch mob is just getting started!

The woke war grinds on and the woke Dogma will become more fanatical.

For every Amber Heard who is dramatically catastrophising every micro aggression as emotional genocide there are a 1000 actual victims of domestic violence suffering in pain.

This case can not and must not be allowed to eclipse the true scourge that is real domestic violence.

Meanwhile the planet is burning and an economic collapse is looming.

  1. I don’t know if feminists will champion Heard as a victim, but they will be more wary of the law being used to silence women who make claims about abuse.

    In Sweden there were a dozen cases where women who made public assault accusations were put on trial, and all were convicted.

    • This is as biased, and bigoted as it can get.. If this was about a political party, it would be fairly labelled as “party political propaganda”.. A load of self serving opinions do not make for reality, no matter how much you want it to… This actually smells strongly of scapegoating disguised as a plea for “justice”.. So, in thirty years when there are going to be huge payouts for the thousands of men wrongly convicted, jailed, and had their lives destroyed by the current attempts to shift any, and all blame onto men for being alive, who is going to be utterly discredited? The people who allowed a totally uncivilised, and rational approach to the problem of how our children, male and female, being manipulated into becoming closed minded to reason, and actual justice, will be the ones pillaried as reactionary zealots who have done immesurable damage to their own species.. Fixing what is a serious, and society wide issue will take maturity and realism from all sectors of those societies.. Simply labelling people on the basis of gender as monsters is utterly reactionary, and lacks any moral and intellectual weight… Just another shameful overreaction by very small people.. This whole situation is proof that humanities claim to be the “pinnacle of evolution” on this planet is just another sick joke, born of arrogance and stupidity..

  2. Amber Heard exaggerated her status as a victim of domestic abuse as well as her gifts to charity but Depp also defamed her.

    “A jury has ruled in favour of Johnny Depp in his libel lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, vindicating his stance that Heard fabricated claims that she was abused by Depp before and during their brief marriage.

    The jury also found in favour of Heard, who said she was defamed by Depp’s lawyer when he called her abuse allegations a hoax.

    Jury members found Depp should be awarded US$15 million ($22.5m) in damages, while Heard should receive US$2 million ($3m).”

    Seems clear from the paltry divorce settlement she received from Johnny Depp, is that he is a miserly, man with his money.

    “Though he blew most of his exorbitant wealth in 2016, Depp is still worth an eye-watering US$150 million, compared to Heard’s US$2.5 million.”

    Reminds me of another NZ fu*kwit, convicted fraudster and tax evader, Eric Watson who also managed to avoid giving his wife a decent divorce settlement.

    Depp doesn’t look good making his wife bankrupt.

    Money rules justice.

      • Who do you think told his lawyer to do that RobbieWgtn, then hid behind attorney/client privilege, which he could have waivered? In one of the very few questions he couldn’t use that on, Alan Waldman, (Depp’s ex lawyer that was booted off the case by the court) admitted he AND Depp met with the Daily Mail at the time. Depp conveniently claims not to remember. Depp professed he did this to show the truth, yet hid when convenient. Also him refusing to submit to a psychological assessment, unlike Amber, was very telling.

    • Oh my god!!! That must be enough to throw Depp into jail for life!! wow!! That as her lies weren’t actually a hoax, as defined by law, that obviously makes her an innocent party…. You’re a genius!!!

    • Most bizarre verdict ever – essentially the jury believed Amber Heard was abused and found defamation by Depp calling her claims a staged hoax. So you can be abused, but if you speak out publicly about it, it’s defamation? What the actual fuck.
      This is sooo gonna be overturned on appeal. Yeah my suspicions about the low calibre of this jury were first aroused when they came in to give their verdict and they had forgotten to award any damages so had to go back.

  3. Some of my women friends were supporting Mr Depp in this case. Maybe they like his persona and acting, but how can you make a call on the personal life of any celebrity you have never met really? Someone in your family or neighbourhood you can definitely make a call.

    Just celeb culture I guess where people can feel emotionally involved with strangers. Hopefully Depp and Heard will disappear for a good while.

    In general terms I support Me Too–for decades in workplaces I have seen for myself how women have been treated, and defended them via union organisation. Men wanking in front of females they have power over and sex for work “casting couches” are just the seedy tip of the societal problem–which includes many religions too.

    Me Too is totally needed as RoeVWade is being turned back in the USA. No man should be scared of standing up for women’s rights–unless they are a whiny little incel…

  4. Wah, wah, he defamed her, she defamed him, millions there, millions there, famous famous famous, 75 gazillion social media references and followers. They have to ‘get a life?’
    The life they’ve got is being bestowed upon them by everyone who needs to get one.
    And there, just like that I’m one of them.

  5. I did NOT watch any of this trial or news coverage thereof.

    Regarding “Woke Dogma”:
    In the coming year(s) I predicts employees will flee from gender diverse workplaces and workplaces saturated with woke thinking/ideology.

    Employers would likely have an easier life if like single-sex schools, they had largely single-sex working environments.

    An HR nightmare waiting to:
    Mixed Gender Environments: sexual harassment, relationship breakups
    Cultural Crusaders: Hiring based of ethnicity rather than competency
    Woke: Employees whom are easily offended

    The Woke Dogma and Victimhood is only sustainable in the public sector and entertainment industry as both are often funded with other peoples money.. ..everyone else just goes broke.

    Once you inject wokeism into a situation it’s very hard/impossible to remove.. such situations are usually resolved through bankruptcy and/or relationship breakups.

    Taken to it’s logical conclusion; in a WOKE saturated country like NZ I’d expect to see the competent people fleeing, especially as we approach Peak Wokeness. On the macro level the New Zealand economy will fall over.

    There it is.

    • +1 Zack, apart from think in NZ it is even worse as even the private practises are mostly propped up by government money and contracts, therefore the entire private practise has also got the money to go woke rather than run a competent business staffed by competent and qualified people.

      +2 “Taken to it’s logical conclusion; in a WOKE saturated country like NZ I’d expect to see the competent people fleeing, especially as we approach Peak Wokeness. On the macro level the New Zealand economy will fall over.”

      And therefore the neoliberals will greedily start selling off government assets in a firesafe just like the 1980’s and quickly push as many warm foreign bodies into NZ (little criteria required) in the hope they can make neoliberalism work post Covid. (Judging by the growing poor, cash jobs, crypto tears, workplace deaths and drugged out shooting and crime, doesn’t look, like it does). Yipee!!!

  6. I think the hashtag ‘CalltheCleanersAmberTurd’ might gain traction too.

    In no way am I meaning to belittle violence against women (or men) in relationships but it’s hard to take any of this fiasco seriously. I guess the problem is it ends up having potentially serious consequences for others.

  7. Whole thing is sordid. Theres a lack of basic virtues showing. Pride absent. Honesty absent. Self respect absent. Depp won so what? Heards loss at least gives some respect for the old fashioned concept of innocent until proven guilty. And watch what you say unless you can prove it.

    • Johnny Depp had already been found guilty of perpetrating twelve counts of domestic violence on Amber Heard in a UK court. He had already been found guilty. Allot of Amber’s evidence from that trial, including medical records was suppressed for this trial.

  8. I’m not entirely sure why this tune smashed down by brain door but does seem oddly relevant when the lead singer crawls out of a hole in the street to head into the pub to try and annoy as many people there possible.
    Maybe his grubby, gritty, shameless, arrogance suffused with a certain kind of style and class is it.
    When we no longer care we will lose something vital about being human.

    • Old mate CB has been spending to much time with Deep engulfing mind altering substances. At least Deep is somewhat intelligible.

  9. I think a lot of people called BS on Amber Herd. While the Woke crowd stuck with the ideology and refused to look at an individual case on its merit.

    Interesting that Johnny Depp started his downward spin from when he met Amber Herd.

    Plenty of women know that some women can be the worst bullies in the workplace. But it’s always the men who are painted as being bad.

  10. Hearing some of the audio of Heard/Depp arguments I could almost swear I was listening to Liz Taylor playing Martha in Edward Albee’s “Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf”

  11. The worst leeches are the lawyers who have profited and advised the stars from this case the most!

    Neither Depp or Heard look good in this and have polarised support now – their careers are never going to be the same after such a toxic court case.

    Remember they used to be in love.

    Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Relationship Timeline
    https://people.com/movies/johnny-depp-amber-heard-relationship-timeline/

    Apparently the marriage breaks up in 2016 where Depp ‘lost all his money’ . It is funny how rich people are suddenly poor when they get divorced making sure their former spouse gets a lot less than they are entitled to.

    Lawyers who draw out divorce settlements ensuring that the crumbs the spouse receives mostly go on legal fees.

    This case will also likely be appealed, after all, Heard will be left bankrupted anyway so she doesn’t have much to lose.

    More $$$ to lawyers.

    Justice is not something that seems to work fairly or quickly anymore and the biggest gainers are lawyers and losers, society.

    • “Apparently the marriage breaks up in 2016 where Depp ‘lost all his money’. It is funny how rich people are suddenly poor when they get divorced making sure their former spouse gets a lot less than they are entitled to.”

      Entitled to? Well, a marriage is for better or worse and all that but if the couple are incompatible after 15 months you wonder if its fair that one partners accumulated assets from a 30 year career should be split half and half with a partner that couldn’t make a marriage work. And if you had a $150 million fortune you might legitimately think have you been hit on by a gold digger who said, “When I was around Johnny I felt like the most beautiful person in the world. It made me feel seen. It made me feel like a million dollars.”

      • Lawyers report that spouses start to hide their money as soon as their marriage hits the rocks. I don’t think marriage assets should be split 50:50 after 15 months of marriage, but no doubt a pre nup was in place and the timing is strange that when the marriage ends that is when he apparently lost all his money and she got a small settlement.

        Making small divorce settlements worse is that the lawyers draw out the process so often most of the money gained is taken up by legal fees that the poorer partner can’t afford and thus is left with a lot less than what is reported.

        Also it also sounds dodgy as there were 12 cases of physical and sexual violence reported in the UK for this case (on file) which were allowed to be seen in the UK case she won, but NOT allowed in the US case which she lost.

        Seems like a lot more to this case than the media is reporting aka it’s about a thrown phone.

        Justice to those with the most money?

  12. Depp is an obvious degenerate I could not care less about.

    However this verdict is a victory against wokeness and a lying mental case fruit loop that Heard is and is a warning to vindictive liars like her they cannot get away with this sort of shit.

  13. Well then, Depp is no longer an idiot and a total whacko. He’s back to being his nice self. Not. I suppose the only thing that will come out of this is that the woke better get smarter about how they attempt to cancel someone. They better have their fucking ducks in a row, instead of simply assuming that ‘outrage’ wins the case. So if someone shouts rape, their better have been rape and not just cuddling.

    • That’s just it though Just Kraut, Depp got cancelled when he –

      a) Trashed a house Disney rented for him in Australia and did $75,000 worth of damage.
      b) Won’t stay sober, resulting in a fried brain and needing his lines fed to him through an earpiece.
      c) Won’t stay sober, lying on the studio insurance forms and is now uninsurable.
      d) Won’t stay sober, resulting in chronic tardiness costing the studios hundreds of thousands of dollars and a
      disgruntled crew waiting for Johnny the diva to show up.
      e) Assaulted a crew member on the set of “City of Lies”, punching him twice in the rib cage. The victim Gregg
      Brooks is suing and Depp is due in court next month.

  14. the concept of ‘believe the woman’ was always flawed, yes listen to women, YES investigate their complaints THROUGHLY but automatic acceptance of an allegation as fact is arrant nonsense.
    when I was younger ‘cops don’t lie’ was the mantra merely implying such would earn the maximum sentence guilty or not, of course no one believes that anymore….he/she is a professional they wouldn’t lie oh really?
    Only on gender issues are we told to accept this ridiculous assumption…
    when this bullshit fades we must still take womens allegations seriously but innocent til PROVEN guilty is a bedrock of democracy.

  15. The media coverage and the desire of the public to consume this dross are more to blame for perpetuating the myth that the victims of domestic abuse should not come forward than the court ruling.
    This was a pedestrian non event civil case that should never have been broadcast.

  16. To me Heard was never publicly credible regardless whether she was abused or not. If she was serious and not just vindictive, she would have made an initial complaint to the police instead of going to social media. Live by the keyboard die by the keyboard. Let’s move on.

  17. All the women I know backed Johnny Depp. I think it was their higher female EQ that let them spot lies and false emotion.

    Nevertheless, NZME Radio’s new service lead story, the verdict going against Heard is a bad problem because it could stop abused women from coming forward to report abuse but, surely that’s a good thing if the reported abuse is a lie. The radio news could have led with the story that men will feel safer knowing that juries recognise some people including some women lie.

    According to Bill Burr, the verdict, “should make even women happy because if he’s innocent then that means he didnt make a women suffer, right?”

    In the Washington Post, Heard claimed she is a “public figure representing domestic abuse”, which turned out to be true. At trial she admitted to being a women that hit her husband on multiple occasions and it was also revealed that she had been arrested for public domestic violence against her lesbian lover in an airport.

  18. oh an excellent distraction for the masses….well played Johnny Deppo-provera….well played all the lawyers and witnesses (Kate Moss you lied I think)……well played Prince Charles & Camilla because while all this crap was going on your dividends on all you war making companies skyrocketted, right? You just made every domestic situation violent by your example. You just made the lifestyles of the rich and famous into an absurd caricature of who did what when they were wasted, used up and intransigent with millions of dineros coming and going and Johhny Depp tsk tsk I liked you in Fear and Loathing but you didn’t ever lose Hunter S. now did ya?

  19. ” Meanwhile the planet is burning and an economic collapse is looming ”

    Yeah when this idiotic sideshow is over the same pressing issues ignored in favour of light entertainment begin to make their presence felt I guess its on to the next diversionary crap fest.

  20. My comment has gone off to the black. Chris is the ‘free speech’ ‘Left’ blogger. If you nip their tits free speech goes out the window. I accept that. Consciousness is just a device to further each one of us. Philosophy is an unavoidable result of that.
