Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

On Brocialism, Hillsogyny and trouble at the political discussion group.


Sexual frustration and dysfunction have been used as metaphors for fascism since fascism first raised its ugly, half-hard erection. It is in that satirical tradition I am operating here. I guess.

Jeff Dorchen reads Amber A'Lee Frost's Baffler article My Kind of Misogyny: I Don’t Care If They Call a Warhawk “Cankles” and then writes his own radio essay - on a new name for Hillary Clinton that I feel gross about writing here, on brocialism and silverbackness, the noncharismatic character actor-ness of Bernie Sanders, second degree transplaining at his monthly political discussion group, and the sour defeaty undertaste of victory in 2016.
