MEDIAWATCH: Woke Gatekeeper media already shifting the Amber Heard goalposts

What’s fascinating to watch is how the gatekeeper media are already shifting the Amber Heard goalposts.

Since 2016, the #MeToo movement went from a righteous stand against harassment and sexual assault into a quasi religious belief system.

Severe 5th wave feminist dogma mixed with non binary activist dogma with Queer Dogma alongside Critical Race Theory and Critical Gender Theory to create an intellectual blancmange of intersectionist identity politics that stated all white people were irredeemable racists, every male was a rapist and anyone supporting free speech was a uniform wearing Nazi who hate the Trans community.

We went from taking accusations seriously to ‘B-E-L-I-E-V-E Women’, because all men are rapists and their toxic masculinity makes them lie, where as women never would lie.


And if you said otherwise and disagreed with an evidential threshold being whatever someone said on Twitter, then you were a rapist as well.

Sure some innocent men might be destroyed in the process, but it’s far better 10 innocent heteronormative cis white males are punished than one walks free.

Woke Lynch mobs went lynching, social media currency to expose your wounds was rewarded and a movement with all the nuance of Māo’s cultural revolution raged around social media cancelling and deplatforming with all the glee of Trump at an all you can eat McDonald’s buffet.

Until the Amber Heard case.

Here we had someone who epitomised the #MeToo movement, and 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.

For many who had spent the last 6 years watching the woke scream ‘B-E-L-I-E-V-E ALL WOMEN ALWAYS’ and their intersectionist stance that due process was a heteronormative white cis male privilege that could just be ignored, the backlash has been all encompassing and as unforgiving as the woke were.

The level of animosity isn’t just about Heard, it’s the entire Woke Salem Witch Trial level of evidence required to destroy someone’s reputation these days and everyone who participates in social media understands and knows that fear of being attacked publicly on social media by a woke crusade that maliciously smears you.

This is a cultural backlash against the excess of ‘B-E-L-I-E-V-E ALL WOMEN ALWAYS’, apparently even those who shit in your bed, however the woke gatekeeper media refuse to accept that and instead are running around trying to avoid the ‘B-E-L-I-E-V-E ALL WOMEN ALWAYS’ extremes of woke middle class identity politics by offering up a thousand explanations as to why everyone else is too stupid to support Amber Heard.

They refuse to accept their own woke extremes have driven a backlash.

They refuse to accept that a woman would ever lie because women are morally superior to men.

They refuse to accept any narrative where the man might be the victim.

Instead they explain why we are all so stupid and sexist…

Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial: Why so many victim-survivors are supporting Depp

Over the past month and a half, Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, has metastasised into a cultural phenomenon.

Dominating Twitter, TikTok and our real life interactions, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t have an opinion on the trial – which, now at its pointy (and welcome) end, has painted a harrowing picture of the actors’ four-year entanglement; the intimate details in both of their testimonies becoming increasingly fraught, gruesome and violent as it’s progressed.

Not everyone, though, has taken the side you might expect.

Among the overwhelming majority of people demanding “justice” for the Pirates of the Carribean star is a demographic that has become some of his most outspoken supporters: women who have survived domestic violence themselves.

…O-R-R-R-R-R-R-R maybe Amber Heard is the girl who cried wolf and exploited a new faith based social movement to ‘B-E-L-I-E-V-E ALL WOMEN ALWAYS’ and she was abusive?

Is it so impossible for the current Salem Witch Trial mentality of the gatekeeper media to accept that maybe, just maybe, a man was the victim here?

Apparently so.

Amber Heard looks like she’s the girl who cried wolf and used the culture of victim virtue signalling as a publicity move, and that’s the true cost of this awful trial.

For every Amber Heard who is dramatically catastrophising every micro aggression as emotional genocide there are a 100 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.

This case reeks of privilege, it doesn’t smell of one sided domestic abuse at all, but that might just be the stench of the shit she apparently took in his bed, which is totally justified because you know, ‘patriarchy’.
