The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

Our cities are burning because some people refused to accept the results of a legal election.

Maybe I shouldn't have been surprised by how fast the Democrats in charge of the blue cities started to circulate the narrative (and by 'narrative' I mean 'totally made-up bullshit') that the rioting and looting and vandalism that has been tearing their cities apart of the last few days is the fault of 'white supremacists.'

Yes, they actually said this. And without any photographic evidence, I might add. No confederate flags, no tiki torches, no klan hoodies, not even any photoshopped MAGA hats. There were just a bunch of white guys with their faces covered that looked very much like standard-issue antifa goons.

And I guess there's a good reason for that.

But I guess I should've been able to predict this would happen.

Because "white supremacists" are the left's go-to bad guys in all of their narratives now. It used to be "large corporations", but ever since the rise of the left-wing high-tech giants, large corporations sre cool now. They aren't the evil, sinister monsters they used to be. Except if you're one of their employees who happens to hold conservative political views and appears on the radar of the HR department (for whatever reason), you might well have reason to hold a different view.

But there's some little part of me that says "oh come on, nobody would ever say anything that ridiculous and expect to be believed", but I guess I really need to recalibrate my expectations.

And another thing that I shouldn't have been surprised by is the number of celebrities who have publicly announced on social media that they will be donating money to bail out the rioters and looters and vandals. Which is weird, because, why would they want to bail about a bunch of white supremacists? Don't they think that white supremacists belong in jail?

That's my "gotcha" observation. But there's something more important to this sort of celebrity charity, and it's rather pernicious. By choosing to allocate their funds for this purpose, they have announced that they are IN FAVOR OF lawless acts of vandalism and looting and AGAINST law-abiding citizens and business owners who are trying to earn an honest living providing a service to their communities. And not just celebrities, I see.

To these celebrities, I would like to say this:

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FREAKING MINDS??

Because what you're doing is taking sides against normal Americans. Normal Americans, I might add, who buy tickets to see your movies or concerts, pay cable fees to watch your TV shows, and buy whatever products you're endorsing.

How do you think this looks? Do you really want to do this?

And the Joe Biden campaign staffers who have announced their intention to donate to these groups? Is being in support of domestic terrorism the smart move?

How is that going to play in the swing states? I know you'll be the toast of San Francisco and New York, but how about Wisconsin? Florida? Heck, even Minnesota. How about Minneapolis?

Our cities are burning because some people refused to accept the results of a legal election.

My next question to them would be "so you're saying this behavior is bad, and to be condemned?" That way, when it comes out that this is all from the left, they are forced to either admit that it's still bad and must therefore condemn antifa and their coreligionists, or say something even more stupid than what they're saying now, namely that it's okay when we do it.

Chauvin can eat a bag of dicks in prison for all I care right now but I hate the narrative of Floyd being an innocent gentle giant. He was arrested for armed robbery for a home invasion in Houston in 2007 and took a plea deal of five years in 2009.

Home invasion is a crime that gets under my skin the most. It's a relatively recent phenomenon that goes against everything America was built on.

83 At first I thought this might just be a set up to depress enthusiasm for Biden after his supporters "have to" suppress the "justifiable protests".
It is increasingly clear that it is a test run for a general insurrection.

Now my evil side is wondering how much funding for this is coming from the ChiComs. It is not like they have not threatened "retaliation" for the trade deals, "interference" in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the South China Sea, and blaming them for the WuFlu.
And it is not like this will not severely hamper any response to any aggressions they may have in the works.

He was aware of the meaning but insisted it was a coincidence.

110 Just when you thought it couldn't get more perverse, MN governor has put MN AG Keith Ellison in charge of the case, taking it away from the city prosecutor. Ellison's son had just come out in support of Antifa

Ellison will presumably want to charge MN Murder One or MN Murder Two, but MN Murder Three is the right charge based on what's known. One requires premeditation. Two require specific intent to kill which is a challenge when there's no motive and no murder weapon was used.

Three is Depraved Indifference and fits the evidence like a glove. But the Mob wants One. So Ellison is doomed to overcharge and will then fuck up the case.

When asked yesterday what the charges would be against the other three he mumbled and deferred to the local prosecutor. Now he's got to make something up.

I honestly don't get it. She never struck me as that kind of thinker.

On the other hand, we did notice that when she's with her friends she grew up with, she used a certain English dialect with them. Sad. She's a nice person but she apparently went off the rails three years ago.

But if ever guilty of thinking of a person in terms of their race category when not approved of by a person of color, its a hanging offense. Simple really.

Don't know what jurisdiction he was in, but most states (especially in the south) allow that in defense of someone who's actively being assaulted. And to touch on something that was brought up in the case of the McMichael's in Georgia; in this case the MMA fighter WAS allowed to intervene and hold the suspect, because he DID witness the oriiginal crime personally, and he DID act at the scene of the crime. Neither condition were true for the McMichaels.

197 You guys need to understand the extent to which a number of black people think they are under constant threat from white people.

One of my neighbours took her kids out of our public school, which is rated quite highly, and enrolled them in a private school in Philly, which is an hour away with no traffic (there's always traffic) after Trump won because they were terrified of having their kids around white people. And it's not like the mom is a housewife. She also has a job she has to get to.

The grandma was even scared of walking around alone in our development, even though she had been doing that before the election.

Meanwhile, my mom and I would walk alone without fear and say hi to our neighbours, who are usually very friendly and often say hi first.

My affluent cousin was telling me yesterday how he was terrified that his son (Ivy league graduate, works for a MAJOR company) could be attacked and possibly killed if he was out at night and had to change a tire.

I believe black men do have to be more careful around police, and from what my nephew (who has a lot of white friends) told me, a lot of white people do seem scared of black men.

However, the level of terror is not warranted by reality.

It's a serious problem.

Did she call you to offer support when a black cop shot and killed a white woman (Justine Damond) in Minnesota for no good reason?

Why do only blacks need or deserve support for these cop killings? More whites than blacks are killed by cops, despite the fact that blacks commit more crimes than whites. Why isn't that evidence of raaaaaaacism against whites?

And since it's Democrat politicians that support and protect the public sector unions that keep bad cops on the job, and since blacks overwhelmingly vote for these same Dem politicians, shouldn't blacks be apologizing to whites, instead of rioting and looting, when these bad cops end up wrongfully killing people?

235 122 I will say I have faith in Trump. Him at the top of the pile is the main reason I'm not dancing myself.

ANTIFA being declared a terrorist org MAYBE means federal (and Military) assets can and will be used against them by the White House. Which MAYBE means the money behind ANTIFA will be exposed.

I still have ammo stacked and packed but so far I'm on guard, not on offense.

Well, I've known her for over 20 years, and she is godmother to one of my nieces. She's been a good friend. Something really turned after Trump won and she became very bitter and combative about racial issues.

239 Don't know what jurisdiction he was in, but most states (especially in
the south) allow that in defense of someone who's actively being
assaulted. And to touch on something that was brought up in the case of
the McMichael's in Georgia; in this case the MMA fighter WAS allowed to
intervene and hold the suspect, because he DID witness the oriiginal
crime personally, and he DID act at the scene of the crime. Neither
condition were true for the McMichaels.

Thanks for the knowledge. My concern stems from the fact that the fat guy was on his knees, and clearly not a threat to Bruce Lee (or at least so it will be argued). Under these conditions, it's easy for a spineless prosecutor to throw a bone to the mob. I hope I'm wrong.

From what I see, it's all just generic, "We're against the system," messaging on the Facebook level. It's not really directed at any particular figure.

The messaging is really muddled and muddy. On the one hand, it allows anyone to latch onto it and virtue signal about oppression, but on the other, it allows anyone to attribute any motive to anyone burning things.

I cannot imagine this being a net win for the left.

I don't think that disproves my theory. It was planned to be because of Trump rallies. But you can't use that messaging now. And the "excuse" is the murder but they don't want that to be the focus because that can lose steam. So keep the message generic so you can slowly twist it to what your goal is.

Posted by: garrett at June 01, 2020 11:56 AM (g9txO)

281 This is my view:

During the era of crazy mask-times: Lady goes to playground, thousands of crazy leftists support cops who tell her to leave because she's endangering people. This is the one example I remember because come on people.

The ironic thing is now all the people who were aggressively angry on twitter about the idea that the state was fabricating Covid data as a way to take away our freedoms, are all insanely obsessed with their freedoms. I saw many posts on like Covid protests being like "I hope these people all die for violating social distancing!" Karma? Who knows. I can't make sense of that.

But, assume deep-state/NSA/Big Tech/Geotracking/Track everybody alliance has significant control over which way the wind blows.

Tell people who believe in freedom to stay home or wear masks or whatever, then write a program to add the ones who violate this "safety recommendation" to a list of anti-surveillance state thinkers.

Then, instigate riots in major cities, see if all the people who obediently stayed home and "strongly advised" others to stay home go out and burn shit and steal shit. Make program that lists these people who left their homes.

In the age of digital tracking, your speech is not your speech. Your activity is your speech. Harder to track during normal times. So they've effectively gotten a big list of Geo/IP/Device tracking on the hardest fringes of the left and some of the right. Just going to the park was seen as a bold intense political statement some weeks back. Psychologically no different.


So, congrats everybody who "Enjoys going out into public" you're all on a deep state NSA/Big Tech list. Learning what you buy is step 1, learning what you read is step 2, learning what you leave the house for is step 3.


This is probably all just paranoia but if this crazy person can see the logic in it, the crazy ass spy-on-everybody people can probably see the logic in it too. The question is where do they go from here.

291 Yes there is racism and bigotry of all types.

And there is no tooth fairy.

And racism and bigotry are endemic in the world. And some is black vs white, and Japanese vs Korean, and Mexican vs. Honduran, Gentile vs. Jew, Jew vs. Gentile etc etc etc

But all, subtle and often minor bigotry is not The Worst Thing Ever in the World and Responsible for All My Problems.

The extreme examples of police violence, that are too often seen, and that I will accept for purposes of argument may sometimes be influenced by racism are, however, not indicative of some endemic, repressively violent racism endemic to the country. They are, sadly, outliers in a largely non-racist country, with a lot of minor background bigotry of all types and going all directions that is the background noise of the human condition.

But for a person of good will and ability, of any race, there is more opportunity to succeed in this country than anywhere else in the world. And the misguided attempt to "cure" all "racism" that can only be accomplished (or pretended) by the most totalitarian language and thought control and insisting on elevating "Diversity" to the single, dominating national value to the exclusion of all else is a cure worse than the disease.

The people directing the riots want dead "protestors", who will be used as an excuse for another cycle of riots.

Likely there will be more incidents like Louisville - having someone fire at the cops in the hopes of eliciting return fire.

If Trump deploys Regular Army and Marine units, this is going to go badly for them. And they don't even have to kill many of them. Just round them up, put them in cages, and guard them. Woe be to anyone who thinks military prisoners are like your local Barney Fifes jailing somebody. Trying throwing molotov cocktails at a FOB. See how that goes.

In January, "guys like Joe Biden" were saying that Trump was a raaaaaacist meanie for stopping incoming flights from China. They were also saying that Trump was over-reacting to the virus threat, and that people should go out and hug a Chinese tourist to prove they are not raaaaaacists.

If Trump had listened to "guys like Joe Biden," there would be many more dead. Even the "expert" epidemiologists have admitted that Trump's travel ban saved thousands of lives in the U.S.

324 Yes there is racism and bigotry of all types.

And there is no tooth fairy.

And racism and bigotry are endemic in the world. And some is black vs white, and Japanese vs Korean, and Mexican vs. Honduran, Gentile vs. Jew, Jew vs. Gentile etc etc etc

But all, subtle and often minor bigotry is not The Worst Thing Ever in the World and Responsible for All My Problems.

The extreme examples of police violence, that are too often seen, and that I will accept for purposes of argument may sometimes be influenced by racism are, however, not indicative of some endemic, repressively violent racism endemic to the country. They are, sadly, outliers in a largely non-racist country, with a lot of minor background bigotry of all types and going all directions that is the background noise of the human condition.

But for a person of good will and ability, of any race, there is more opportunity to succeed in this country than anywhere else in the world. And the misguided attempt to "cure" all "racism" that can only be accomplished (or pretended) by the most totalitarian language and thought control and insisting on elevating "Diversity" to the single, dominating national value to the exclusion of all else is a cure worse than the disease.

None of that matters, our society has allowed a situation and reality to take hold that any death of a black person at the hands of white cops under any circumstances is unacceptable.


And will result in the widespread destruction of cites and people in positions of authority will allow this destruction.

So we need to either cede policing to the communities, tell the communities the are SOL or only hire POC cops to police these communities or no white cop can report to an incident involving a black perp without a black officer.


What I'm saying is clearly insane but that is what the Democrat party malfeasance and GOP indifference has brought us.

This is the difference, subtly, between bigotry and true racism. True racism is institutional. I can encounter an act of bigotry (and have) without the entire system being arrayed against me. Bigots do not racist institution make. As for institutional racism, there may be some, but that is quite arguable. Inner-city education is a nightmare scenario, for example, and that disproportionately hits black people. Now are our abjectly failed public education, public housing and public assistance systems racist? I don't know. I think they are more egregiously anti-poor and increasingly anti-middle-class, as opposed to anti-black per se. But I think you could make an argument out of it.

But in general, institutional racism does not exist in the United States, bigotry (which is an individual affair) notwithstanding.

Which apparently isn't so important anymore.

Now, patriots were demonstrating against the suppression of rights denied to them.

In contrast, the "mostly-peaceful" demonstrators were gathering together in concert-hall-sized crowds to demonstrate about something that was ALREADY happening--just not fast enough for them.

But the officials "stood with" the social-distancing violates who were demonstrating about something already in progress, which even Keith Ellison had to explain was happening about as quick as they dared.

But not with people who *simply* wanted to exercise their rights.

If you watch video of Antifa riots the leaders are always about 5 or 6 ranks behind the advance ranks. You can spot them because they are always looking around and sizing up the situation, occasionally you'll see them give instructions. There are always more cannon fodder in an army than officers. Those are the reasons that in-state arrests outnumber the out of state ones.

365 OK, I never discuss politics IRL, but I just unloaded when a white colleague said that we should watch a Trevor Noah video to explain (which I assume means justify) the reaction.

I couldn't help myself. I said I'm sure Noah wouldn't feel the same way if it was his home that was destroyed. And that how I didn't understand how destroying innocent people's businesses nmakes any sense.

I was a bit heated, and I'm sure no one at work has ever seen that side of me, LOL. My boss, who I know is a lib, agreed with me.

There are few African-Americans in my part of the country. But every time I have a chance encounter with one in a store or gas station, they are always overboard polite even to the point of being obsequious.

Like they are afraid I'm going to hurt them.

And this has always puzzled me, because if there's anyone who is not a threat, it's me. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't hurt anyone. I'm old, my body is visibly broken, I can barely walk, so I don't know why they should be afraid of me.

yes, all this talk of white man's Western world being so evil, which African nation would they like us to become more like? Or which commie nation, or which Islamic nation?


The "problem" with USA is the leftists and commies have paid agitators constantly dividing people, for fun and profit. It may well be that a majority of the "black community" are angry that looters and druggies are tearing apart their community ... BUT the Dem leaders and gang leaders are happy with constant chaos.


And there are always enough gangster (Trayvon/Brown) types to riot on demand, especially when Target is offering "Break one Steal Ten Free" open store sales. The "we deserve reparations, so you can't arrest us" is basically taught in the schools.

Something my wife and I were discussing last night. Everyone we see who if screaming about systemic racism we know, is white.

My wife pointed out that all the lecturing going on feels racist in and of itself. The are a bunch of white liberals who think of blacks as no better than 12 year olds who have to be excused for their behavior and spoken for on their behalf.

I think someone who *is* black, would have a better perspective on what the real situation is regarding racism. My suspicion is that it isn't as bad as we are being told by the liberals, but that it does still exist to some extent.

But we can never learn the truth, because of all the hectoring by people white knighting for the black community, who have no actual experience with the problem.

I sometimes wonder if the root of what actual racism we still have is based on white liberals thinking that blacks can't think or provide for themselves.

Most spiders aren't venomous.

Most of the Cambodians of the 1970s weren't members of the Khmer Rouge.

Most motorcycle club member/riders obey traffic laws.

Most of the sects claiming to follow the Koran aren't at present engaged in violent Jihad.

Most of the subjects of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia aren't related to the family Saud, and even of those who are, most Saud-family members have never been convicted of an act of terrorism.

Most of the criminals convicted of murdering a spouse have never murdered anyone else.

Most dogs never bite postal workers.

Most sharks never bite surfers.

Most print journalists have no ability to write computer code.

Most TV journalists are not as handsome as the fictional "Ted Baxter". (Especially the women).

387 The problem with the word "racism" is that most of us don't even agree on what "Racism" is, and then we try and say who has it an who doesn't.

Of course there are individual acts of racism. And those acts burn in the memory - just like you remember the one guy who cuts you off in traffic, instead of thousand or so who obey the rules. But based on my experience of growing up white in Chicago in the 1950s, overt white racism - the racism that declared itself openly and violently - is much less now than it was back then, and is entirely gone from the professional caste that I inhabit.

Twenty years ago, I served on a jury for a medical malpractice case. One of my fellow jurors was a young black woman. She had a college education; in fact, she was wearing a sweatshirt from her alma mater, Wilberforce College. I recall that she claimed once that "nothing has changed"; all I could think, though I didn't say it, was that in the days of my childhood, the idea of a black woman sitting on a jury before a black judge in a case involving a white physician would have been considered ludicrous. Also, it was clear that she had no idea who William Wilberforce was, and my impression, perhaps mistaken, was that she had no desire to learn. How sad. But anger is a powerful drug, habit-forming and mind-altering.
