Woke or Joke?

Hard to tell these days.


Vodka Pundit warns that it's possible this is a gag, but who can tell any more?

This Federalist article notes that the "Woke" alleged anti-racists are deliberately increasing racial tensions and encouraging racial consciousness and racial separatism -- not to mention, pushing the idea that One Race is Evil By Blood and responsible for all the world's ills -- which is suspiciously exactly like the program pushed by racists.

When the "anti-racist" platform exactly mirrors the racist one, maybe the "anti-racists" need to get woke about their own privilege and racism.

Posted by: Ace


Leftists try to counter this argument by proffering their redefinition of racism:

racism = prejudice + power

Since minorities "don't have power" in society, by definition that can't be racist, even if they hate whites.

Of course, this redefinition fails, since countless privileges and social power-stances are granted to minorities these days which white don't have. In factual reality, minorities have a great deal of power nowadays. hence, they can be racist, even by the leftist redefinition.

No, it fails because not only is all politics subjective, but - in the most minimal of examinations - if you breathe you exhibit power.

To say that minorities have no power is to say they have no agency, and there cannot be a more bigoted position than that.

It is nothing new. Indeed, you are more likely to more open racism among the various "POC" groups than you ever would have among the e-vil white people, certainly (again) in the past 40 years or so.

But woe betide anyone who dares to point out "the emperor has no clothes" in this regard, as you will be attacked from all sides with the usual "raycis, raycis, raycis" screams. A zero sum game...

100 Little Known Historical Fact #217 (From an ancient 1623 treatise found in a castle dungeon in County Cork):

One takes a slightly deranged goose, pumps it full of helium, shoves an out-of-tune harmonica in its mouth, inserts it into a plaid sack, grabs it firmly by the neck, tucks the bag up under their arm, simultaneously squeezing the goose's body with his arm while choking it by the neck, thus emitting the classic sound of the Irish Highland bagpipe.

Posted by: tu3031 at March 17, 2017 02:07 PM (qJhUV)

I think this is due to them having a visceral fear of being racist. So they must insist that being white is merely an idea that must be suppressed or defeated.

114 I own a book of "10,000 Ethnic Jokes" published in the 1920s.

Surprisingly, the "Negro" chapter is the smallest. About 95% of the humor is directed at Irish, Bohunks, Swedes, Jews, Scots, French, British, Poles, etc.

Here's a typical example, riffing on how Scots are cheapskates and Irish are thieves:

A Scotsman goes to an Irish dentist and complains of a toothache. The Irish dentist says it will cost $3 to have the tooth removed, but he'll have to knock out the Scotsman with laughing gas before the operation.

The Scotsman takes out his wallet and starts counting his money.

The Irish dentist says, "Oh, don't bother doing that now, you don't have to pay until AFTER the tooth is removed."

The Scotsman replies, "I was just counting my cash before you knocked me out."

Leftists try to counter this argument by proffering their redefinition of racism:

racism = prejudice + power

Since minorities "don't have power" in society, by definition that can't be racist, even if they hate whites.

Of course, this redefinition fails, since countless privileges and social power-stances are granted to minorities these days which white don't have. In factual reality, minorities have a great deal of power nowadays. hence, they can be racist, even by the leftist redefinition.

Posted by: zombie at March 17, 2017 01:59 PM (DQ4Fv)


But you forget that the Left claims its about "institutional power".

This means that society as a whole is a creation of "Whiteness" with the sole purpose of oppressing others to gain unearned privilege or something.

Thus, even if ever White person were enslaved and tortured, they'd still be the oppressors because "Whiteness" is some type of mystical miasma of malfeasance.

This is no different than the Soviets finding "Kulaks" decades after the October Revolution.

This is because the "power + prejudice" is their way of defining "racism" as "White people."

It doesn't matter if they have actual power or actual prejudice. They are guilty through no fault of their own.

"Whiteness" becomes an original sin, and an unsrivable sin that nonetheless must be forcibly srived!

192 racism = prejudice + power

Since minorities "don't have power" in society, by definition that can't be racist, even if they hate whites.

Of course, this redefinition fails, since countless privileges and social power-stances are granted to minorities these days which white don't have.


Yes, but that's where "privilege" comes in. Its an attempt to recapture that power/powerless structure in other terms. The left recognizes that blacks cannot rationally be defined as powerless and oppressed in modern culture any longer. So they came up with "white privilege."

White Privilege is an attempt to define ordinary normal Americans as special and elite, as being unfairly benefitted by being normal and mainstream. That makes the non-mainstream normal and oppressed by those who are "privileged."

216 St. Patrick's Day is a celebration of the Patriarchy. It is about St. Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland. Snakes are a phallic symbol and are absent a male body. So its a celebration of getting rid of dildos, thus denying women the opportunity for sexual satisfaction on their own!

Like Shapiro, a host of other so called intellectual conservatives, who are obviously functional retards in reality, openly admitted they voted for this Anti-American hack.

A lot of his stuff seems trite because of the Seinfeld Effect -- he was so influential and imitated, all of his stuff seems derivative now. But it wasn't. It's just spawned thousands of imitators.

434 Jay Leno was also spectacularly funny.

I've never seen it, but I want to -- his live show is said to be "legendary." He never did a comedy special, because he realized if he took $20,000 (or whatever) to do his show on HBO, those jokes would now be "dead" and he couldn't tell them live again.

He accurately mathed the situation out and realized he could sell the jokes once for $20,000 or ten thousand times for $20,000 a pop. He chose the latter.

And they say he's been honing the act for so long it's just perfect machinery by now.

420 Jerry Seinfeld was a fantastic comic in his prime. He was the best of his wave, and there really wasn't even a 2nd best.

A lot of his stuff seems trite because of the Seinfeld Effect -- he was so influential and imitated, all of his stuff seems derivative now. But it wasn't. It's just spawned thousands of imitators.

Cosby was great too.

I respect the guys who can kill working clean.


Posted by: ace at March 17, 2017 02:52 PM (8rNrN)


This times a billion. Comedy is hard. Doing stand-up is harder. Being successful based on merit is damn near impossible.

I did open-mic standup in college and a few years after college. It takes brass balls to get up there with your own material and get laughs. I met and hung out with some of the funniest and most talented people I'll ever meet doing open-Mics. Getting to hang out after hours and drink plus no cover charge. And the mish wasn't too bad either. My marriage killed it.

There is no stronger adrenaline rush in the world than being on stage and having the audience in the palm of your hands because laughter.

Ace, did you ever try open-mic or hit up the NYC comedy club scene? Personally I'd live there at night if I lived in NYC single and in my 20s-40s. I love the atmosphere of those places.

I was treated to a bit of history which had previously escaped my attention. I had of course been familiar with the concept of white "indentured servants" who voluntarily signed themselves into something quite like slavery in the New World, in order to escape their home country.

I hadn't realized that for these folk, most of them entirely illiterate, the documents for the contract into which they entered had a wide wax seal, upon which they had to bite down. An early version of dental records, perforce the "indentured" part of the deal.

The Irish were starving because they were poor and ignorant, and kept that way by a collusion between the ruling classes, the church and the English. They were isolated from sources of capital, and the training to use it.

527 BTW, I was surprised at the comprehensive stock at the Cabelas and decent prices. They even had size 10 and size 11 percussion caps at a reasonable cost and no hazmat fee. It is a dangerous place, almost as bad as a used book store.

528 "One of my favorite things about Seinfeld is that each episode had two or three separate plots going, which inevitably intersected at some point. "

The low talker, puffy shirt, George as a hand model episode was hilarious. So was the " Was Jerry picking or just touching" his nose episode.

531 My parents were born in Ireland, came to America as children. We were taught our Irish heritage but we were Americans first. My parents never let us forget that we were in the greatest country in the world. I am glad they can't see it now.

532 The English didn't really control most of Irish until the 17th Century (where the phrase "beyond the Pale" came from, the Pale being greater Dublin). After they did, they suppressed Irish fishing in a variety of ways.

536 "Beyond the Pale" meant beyond the Pale of Settlement where Jews were allowed to reside in imperial Russia.

Understand how you confused "pale" and Irish though.

537 >>>Ace, did you ever try open-mic or hit up the NYC comedy club scene?

nah. I pondered it and wrote some jokes for doing one. I never had the guts to do it tho.

always wanted to -- letterman said there was nothing like it in the world, the excitement of it, just all adrenaline.

but, no guts, no glory.

You can do like Howie Mandela and have your stand up bomb and then blow up a rubber glove over your head out of panic and become a huge star. You never know.

539 "The phrase was in use by the mid-17th century, and may be a reference to the general sense of boundary, but is often understood to refer specifically to the English Pale in Ireland. In the nominally English territory of Ireland, only the Pale fell genuinely under the authority of English law, hence the terms within the pale and beyond the pale."

543 If anyone has actually read the crap the Left writes, you would know they have fantasized about exterminating whites for decades.

They are even willing to sacrifice their own children to the gods of liberalism and progressivism.

Truly fucked up!

544 Perhaps all 'woke' folks would enjoy being air dropped into south Dallas or south Chicago or east LA for a few days. Could benefit their worldview.

546 Jerry Seinfeld was a fantastic comic in his prime. He was the best of his wave, and there really wasn't even a 2nd best.

The two times I've gone to see Seinfeld, I find out how tiring it is to laugh for 90 minutes straight. Seinfeld is a giant--and people in the industry know it.

On the other hand, I've stopped watching Netflix comedy specials, because--even though they have some people who I've thought I loved their act--I barely manage a chuckle here and there.

547 Remember when Irish immigrants weren't even considered white?

Posted by: Pepperidge Farm at March 17, 2017 02:00 PM (rX06+)

I also remember when they were enslaved (well forcibly indentured, anyway) and lynched for wearing green or speaking their own language in their own country.

548 If this isn't a joke, it's a good way to push 10's of thousands of young alcohol consuming college students away from the progressive movement. Because nobody likes a buzzkill.

It was first called the "pale" in Ireland. The use of "beyond the pale" dates from the 14th century when the English delineated the parts of Ireland that they controlled using stakes of fences. English living "beyond the pale" were forbidden to learn the Irish language, intermarry with the Irish or dress as the Irish dressed.

550 is it too late for "woke as a joke?" seems applicable. Also, first time commenter... maybe don't make too much fun of my hair eh?

Thanks Redbanzai. We finally agree on something

552 So let me get this straight....

St. Patrick's Day is bad because it "otherizes" those not of the race of the culture being celebrated, even though there is no race requirement to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

But Kwanzaa is ok...
Cinco de Mayo is ok...
La Raza is ok....
Black Panthers are ok...
LULAC is ok....
Congressional Black Caucus is ok...
Ramadan is ok...
Black History Month is ok...

I guess if racist leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all, would they?
