The 16 Most Annoying People of 2016

Considering the state of this world, it is perfectly understandable to find oneself being constantly annoyed.

As each year winds to an end, I find myself surveying the past twelve months and thinking about who annoyed me. I have previously published lists of my findings for 2012, 2013, and 2014. Last year I took a hiatus, apparently because something more timely caught my attention and annoyed me instead.

When choosing my finalists for 2016, fame was not a consideration. I’m sure you’ve heard of some people on this list, while I suspect that most of them are new to you. These are merely the human annoyances that I, poring over my extensive notes from the past year, find myself most personally aggravated by as I peck out this article on a dark and wintry eve.

My selections are rated in escalating levels of annoyance. Nonwhites are cut some slack because they don’t know any better, while white ethnomasochists get top billing.

Without further ado, I present to you this past year’s most annoying personages.

“Considering the state of this world, it is perfectly understandable to find oneself being constantly annoyed.”

16. AURA BOGADO
This less-than-svelte dusky dumpling writes for perennial commie rag The Nation about “race, justice and the environment,” so you can assume she couldn’t think her way out of a brown paper bag, even one made from recycled products. This year not only did she smear the game Pokémon Go as “racist,” she blamed the 300+ deaths in Haiti from Hurricane Matthew not on Hurricane Matthew, but on “environmental racism.” In lieu of any new evidence that changes my mind, I will assume that anyone who mixes intangibles such as “justice” and “racism” alongside environmental issues is a stooge of globalist propaganda. Many scientists agree that the weather sometimes changes, so obviously we need a world government with a centralized taxing authority.

15. CAROLYN FINNEY
Another minority hire who mixes anti-white animus with pseudo-academic environmental gibberish, Ms. Finney is paid in real live US tax dollars to be a “diversity advisor” for the US National Parks Advisory Board. In her book Black Faces, White Spaces, she attempts to argue that black people avoid scenic rural areas because they have a history of being oppressed “in forests and other green areas.” Yes—she actually wrote that. This year she attempted to argue that black Americans avoid the nation’s National Parks “because they were lynched on the trees.” Fire this woman now.

14. ELIE MYSTAL

This hostile and overweight black male lawyer edits a website called Above the Law. In a recent article called “Here’s How Black People Could Use Jury Nullification To Break The Justice System,” he encouraged jurors to “acquit any person charged with a crime against white men and white male institutions”:

Assault? Acquit. Burglary? Acquit. Insider trading? Acquit….Murder?…what the hell do you think is happening to black people out here? What the hell do you think we’re complaining about when your cops shoot us or choke us? Acquit….White people aren’t willing to indict a cop for choking a black man to death in broad daylight. Imagine if black people weren’t willing to indict a citizen for punching a white guy in the mouth?

What the hell do I think is happening to black people out here? Well, in 92.5% of the cases when they’re murdered, they’re being killed by other black people. Maybe instead of acquitting people who victimized whites, juries should ramp up their conviction rates of blacks who murder blacks? Scratch that—it doesn’t appear that his goal is to protect blacks as much as it is to harm whites.

13. SADIQ KHAN
This year Khan was elected “the first Muslim mayor of any major Western city” and thus served as a symbolic “fuck you” to indigenous Britons who don’t want their soggy island turned into an Islamic satellite state. When English voters chose to leave the EU, he threatened to defy their mandate. He immediately set about to further crush the national consciousness by installing a series of gay-friendly traffic lights in London, to ban public advertising that featured women with desirable bodies, and complained that the board which governs the London Underground is too white. He is a sneaky snake and is not to be trusted.

12. KEVIN D. WILLIAMSON
A staff writer for the resolutely cuckolded National Review—which devoted an entire issue in a failed and flailing attempt to stop Donald Trump—Williamson wrote a screed decrying America’s white working class that bordered on Tim Wise levels of genocidal disdain:

[N]obody did this to them. They failed themselves…. The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. … The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles.

As the election proved, America’s white working class is very much alive. It is National Review that deserves to die.

11. SHAUN KING
The clearest evidence that American journalism is dead is the fact that this idiot has a column in a New York daily, although the Daily News quickly shut off all comments on his articles when it became apparent that he wouldn’t know a fact if it beat him over the head like the LAPD clobbered Rodney King. This summer the dubiously black Mr. King threatened to help overthrow the US government if Donald Trump were elected president. Apparently operating free from the constraints of fact-checkers, King also stated that “Extrajudicial deaths of men, women and children at the hands of police have never been this widespread in the history of America,” even though the facts clearly state that such killings have plummeted since the 1960s. A symptom rather than a cause of what ails America, King maintains his editorial position for no other reason than the fact that he claims to be black.

10. BEN SHAPIRO
Small enough to be dwarfed by horse jockeys, this quintessential neocon windbag postures as someone who fights leftist witch-hunting yet revealed himself as a hypocrite when he encouraged that “legitimate racists” should be targeted and have their careers hurt:

Of course there are legitimate racists, and we should target them, and we should find them, and we should hurt their careers, because racism is unacceptable.

Since there is no way to quantify “racism,” there is no way to determine whether someone is a “legitimate racist,” although by Mr. Shapiro’s definition, a Jewish ethnostate in the Middle East is not “racist,” while Donald Trump’s legions of supporters are filled with subhuman “anti-Semites.”

In true neo-McCarthyite fashion, Shapiro published a list in late August of “20 alt-right-friendly or alt-right people/outlets.” A hearty seven of those listed have written for Taki’s Magazine.

9. LENA DUNHAM
By now we are all well familiar with the fact that she’s a titless boar who serially molested her sister and falsely accused a “Republican” of raping her in college. Right before the election she publicized an animated video where she and her father discuss how cool it would be if straight white men were to be eliminated.

She claims she was so emotionally wrecked by Hillary Clinton’s hilarious electoral defeat that she “could feel my chin breaking into hives,” so she did what any hyper-entitled shit-hog would do—she flew to Arizona to speak with rocks, posted a “vile toilet selfie” where she looks even uglier and more deranged than normal, and then recently stated that she wishes she’d had an abortion.

Not as much as we wish your mom did, Lena.

8. MICHELLE FIELDS

It was to be expected that the liberal media would oppose Trump with their trademarked infantile fury, but it is the “Never Trumpers” on the allegedly “right” side of the political spectrum who must be forever denied any further employment in media. Miss Fields was a reporter for Breitbart News Network when she claimed that Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski violently grabbed her arm and yanked her downward, nearly causing her to fall. She even showed bruises on her forearm from the alleged assault. However, video footage clearly shows that no such thing happened—and as luck would have it, Lewandowski hadn’t touched her anywhere near her forearm. Fields filed a police complaint which was ultimately laughed out of court.

7. BILL KRISTOL
This self-important smirking turd, the “First Baby of Neoconservativism,” led the futile and doomed “Never Trump” movement, whose futility was epitomized when Kristol offered up writer David French as an “impressive” third-party presidential candidate with a “real chance.” French not only never had a chance, he didn’t even run. Kristol and his Weekly Standard are now condemned to the dustbin of historical irrelevance along with all other “conservatives” who wish to see American soldiers die on Israel’s behalf.

6. KARSTEN HAUKEN
A self-described “socialist, feminist, and anti-racist” from Norway, Hauken claims he was viciously raped by a Somali migrant about five years ago. Upon learning that the black buck who tore his asshole open was being released from prison and sent back to Somalia, Hauken expressed his pangs of guilt:

I also got a strong sense of guilt and responsibility. I was the reason why he should not have to leave Norway, and heading for a very uncertain future in Somalia…I do not feel anger toward my rapist, for I see him most as a product of an unjust world….I am afraid that no girls want me, and that other men laugh at me.

Can’t speak for the girls, but yes—men are laughing at you.

5. SAMANTHA BEE
These days it is nearly impossible to have a career in mainstream comedy if you aren’t a liberal. In fact, you don’t have a shot if you don’t devote at least half of your material to mocking liberals’ chief bogeyman, the straight white male. Facially challenged alleged comedienne Samantha Bee is just one among many of the Colberts and Stewarts and Fallons and Kimmels and John Olivers and other late-night talk-show hosts who infuse their “comedy” with so much stale leftist snark, they’ve basically strangled American humor to death. Upon Trump’s election, she said, “It’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people.” This is despite the fact that a lower quotient of whites—and a higher quotient of nonwhites—voted for Trump than for Romney in 2012. I have an alternate theory for why Hillary Clinton lost: She was surrounded by shitty comedians.

4. JESSE BENN
This year marks two years in a row that Jewish nerd Jesse Benn has written an article encouraging violence toward whites. In 2015 it was “Towards a Concept of White Wounding.” This year it was “Sorry Liberals, A Violent Response To Trump Is As Logical As Any.” He is but one of many psychotic leftists who openly encourage violence against their ideological opponents but would be laughably ill-equipped to defend themselves against the backlash they’re helping to create.

3. HENRIETTE REKER
In 2015 Ms. Reker, the mayor of Cologne, Germany, was stabbed by a German nationalist over her support for refugees. But last New Year’s Eve, when mass mob attacks in Cologne of German women by men of “North African or Arabic” appearance justified the term “rapefugees,” Reker counseled German women using the most truly “rape culture” sentence I may have ever heard:

It is always possible to keep a certain distance that is longer than an arm’s length.

That’s right—it isn’t the rapists’ fault; it’s the fault of German women for not keeping their distance from the men who are raping them en masse.

2. SELIN GÖREN
Another emblem of the suicidal insanity of modern German leftist women, Ms. Gören, 24, was sexually assaulted last January in a playground by a trio of men who appeared to be speaking either Arabic or Farsi. But since she was paralyzed by the fear of appearing “racist,” she lied and told police that she was robbed rather than sexually assaulted—and by men speaking German rather than some Middle Eastern tongue.

1. ELIZABETH BROADBENT
White social-justice virtue-signaling has reached the point where parents are selling out their own flesh and blood in the service of their political delusions. Ms. Broadbent recently wrote an article called “Why I Feel Guilty About Being A White Mother,” giving her three sons a lifelong pass for feeling ashamed of their own mom. But Broadbent represents a mere tip of a troubling iceberg of white parents snitching on their own kids Soviet-style for thoughtcrimes. Other articles in this sick genre include “Raising White Children to be Anti-Racist Allies,” “It’s My Job to Raise Children Who Are Not Only Not Racist But Actively Anti-Racist,” “My teen boys are blind to rape culture,” and “My four-year-old son is sexist - so who’s to blame?

When I hear of such brainwashing nonsense, I recall the Frank Zappa line, “If your children ever find out how lame you really are, they’ll murder you in your sleep.” While I would never publicly encourage children to murder their parents, it is my fondest wish that when the spawn of these clueless and self-loathing white losers reach their political awakening, they should forever disown their parents for the abuse inflicted upon their developing psyches.
