The Uvalde, TX massacre happened because of...the Hays (movie content) Code?! I can't even...

This is the kind of nonsense you get on Catholic radtrad radio and TV: (Ir)-Relevant Radio, EWTN, etc. Trending With Timmerie is a moronic show on (Ir)-Relevant Radio that I fortunately had not heard of before yesterday. Timmerie's Twitter page makes it clear that most of the time, she's obsessed with abortion and pelvic issues, standard-issue fare for the talkers on radtrad networks. But today, she's got the answer to ending all the school shootings.




Did you know that the entire entertainment industry used to operate by a code? Lt. Col Dave Grossman, author of “Assassination Generation”, joins me in this episode to explain why he thinks the Texas shooting happened...

...So what changed? In the early 1960's, Hollywood threw that code away.


I listened to this segment of the show while driving and found it hard to believe what I was hearing. These radtrads are so intellectually lazy that they can't understand the difference between an assertion and an argument. This is what you get when you silo your kids off in phony "higher learning" institutions like Franciscan "University" of Stupidville...er...Steubenville and John Paul the Great Catholic "University" (Timmerie's alma mater).

A couple more picayune (and perhaps petty) criticisms follow.

First, the Hays Code didn't actually end until 1968. Like most social conservatives, the radtrads love to invert cause and effect. The Code was rescinded because long before its demise in the late '60s, its restrictions on content and contradictory nature were causing it to fracture on a daily basis. Anyone ever heard of film noir? Most of the most celebrated films in that genre were being made at the same time the Code was being implemented. Also, the Hays Code did not apply to "the entire entertainment industry". It applied to motion pictures, and not even all of them. And also not records, concerts, novels, etc.

Second, Timmerie loves to let everyone know on her Twitter and Instagram that she has a Master's degree. Apparently she missed out on grade-school English grammar. It's 1960s, not "1960's".

Also, Timmerie's picture on her Twitter is at least a decade out of date. No vanity there at all, no sir. (Compare it with her latest Instagram photos). The radtrad networks are now up to the same thing Fox has been doing for at least 20 years: hire lots of photogenic women and airbrush and Botox them until they look like statues--or as Randi Rhodes calls them, the "right-wing Fembots".

That last bit was a cheap shot, but Timmerie deserves it.

3. Check out Relevant Radio, EWTN, Ave Maria Radio/Ave Maria anything...

...and keep triangulating from there. Radtrad = radical traditionalist, usually Catholic, but the new fad is ROCOR (Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia). I think that's what Rod Dreher (a real piece of work) converted to after he left Catholicism because it wasn't traddy enough (or whatever his excuse was).
