Self-parody: Derek Jeter, Gulfstream liberals wring hands at Davos; Twitter mocks ‘bold ideas’

Ah, the yearly gathering of Gulfstream progressives! The World Economic Forum is going on in Davos, Switzerland.

Yes. Because, hilarious. There is much laughter to be had. Take this year’s theme:

They have no clue themselves. It just sounds fancy pants and “enlightened,” and isn’t that what really matters? Some smug self-pats on the back for being oh-so-brilliant?

Those who live in the real world prefer some awesome mockery as medicine. Twitter users discuss Davos with their signature snark.

Poor, little rich proggies! And in the cold, to boot!

They are discussing big ideas, people! In the snow. Uphill.

Both ways.

Even Chuck Todd can’t spin the absurdity away.

That’s right. Yankee Derek Jeter was in attendance. He’s a noted expert on “climate change,” you see.


Heh. Bless their hearts, they tried.

They just didn’t realize the hashtag was funny, because it’s true. A hashtag hijacking begins, pointing out the hilarity of Davos. Can you mock something that has become a self-parody? Yes, Twitter can!

More, please, Twitter! Maybe we can toughen up those “vulnerable elites.”

    I think A-Rod and Tex are my favorite Yankees now. Hey, Derek, on the off-chance you see this, when did being a good, wealthy, biracial ballplayer make you an expert on “climate change”, eh?

      “Resilient Dynamism” A stubborn refusal to understand your pseudo-dynamism is part of the problem.

    What difference does it make if it’s theme is resilient dynamism or annual gathering of hypocritical frauds? What matters is that they keep gathering and praising themselves for idiotic ideas.

      “what difference does it make?” I think Hillary needs to be paid five cents every time someone uses her 2016 campaign slogan.

    Jeter actually said this, as quoted in the New York Post Page Six: “Regardless of how you feel about it (climate change), it’s something that needs to be
    addressed because we’re seeing more and more natural disasters each year
    . . . Something has to be causing it.” Derek, what if the “something” causing it is solar activity? Should we still “address it?” I suggest you keep your day job and go back to hitting your little balls.

      Incidentally, the left loves to wring their hands and proclaim, “We have to do something!” about whatever crisis they can manufacture. Then the “something” they propose always results in an erosion of our rights and an increase in our taxes. Climate change and gun control are the two examples that come immediately to mind. The left preys on small minds like Jeter’s and his cocktail party friends from Hollywood. Tool.

    • TomJB

      Maybe he could propose we extinguish the sun. It would cut back on the natural disasters and that global warming thing would certainly be put to bed once and for all!

        And get rid of those darn clouds they cause all that fretful rain.

    Oh, Jeter, you disappoint me.

    All I can think of is Davros (, the Doctor’s enemy!

    Phil Mickelson has to apologize for his success and Jeter gets the Nobel Peace Prize?

    Davos: where the top 0.0005% get paid off for forwarding the global oligarchy’s agenda.

    Higher power rates is always good for the poor……………something is missing here, oh yeah, logic.

    Dear Mr. Jeter: Ever hear about the time when Northern America was a tropical savanna and full of dinosaurs? Then came the Ice Age. And not one single gas driven SUV anywhere. Gee, Mr. Jeter, maybe what’s “causing” climate change is the natural cycle of the change in climate. #BigBoldDavosIdeas
