Bill Murray: Say, Identity Politics Are Destroying Our Culture and Country, Huh? Oh and BTW, I Think The Tax Cuts Were a Great Idea

Watch Bill Murray Savage Identity Politics: 'Think About What Is Common To All Of Us'

Murray proceeded to talk about comedy writer Jim Downey, who's been called the "Karl Rove of SNL," and why that label is unfair.

"He's saying: 'No, I just think the way the Democrats handle things is poor where they try to pick out little pieces of a population," Murray said. "'We represent the Hispanics, we represent the LGBT or something.' And they're not speaking to everyone all at once. And it' almost demeaning to say, 'I'm choosing you because you're a splinter group, or a certain minority group.' There's almost a resentment that some how you're separated, again, by a politician."

"'You're my people," he said, imitating a Democratic politician. "'I'm in control of you, I represent you,' instead of thinking that each citizen has a right to be respected as a citizen first, under the laws of the country."

The actor went on to praise the Republican tax reform plan, saying that it's good for American businesses.

That there's nothing for whites to unite about based on being white? Of course I'd say that to a black person.

There is something, it's not everything but it's something, for blacks to unite about. They have to deal with the reaction to blackness every day. We're a long way past official discrimination and we're a lot closer to race-blind than we've been, but black people have an extra layer of "I'm being looked at as a black person" that white people don't have.

I don't have that. I'm just white. I don't have any privilege, I don't get any perks. But I don't have to think about it.

And I don't have anything in common with you. Assuming you're white, which I don't care. You can be as white as I am from the same county in the Olde Sod, except I don't know which county we came from. I'm just a guy who is white and you may be a guy who is white and that gives us nothing in common.

IIRC, Bill Murray began to move rightward after some Asian American activist leftist weenies (Sadly, they do exist, though thankfully fewer than other races or ethnics) were condemning him for his role in "Lost In Translation". Bill was trying to explain that the Japanese people were just backdrop and the movie was really about loneliness, but said leftists were still having a shit fit.

When he was starring in Moonrise Kingdom they ran out of money for a helicopter in a scene so he paid for it. He was starring in the movie really cheap and actually almost wound up paying to be in it.

206 Maybe you can explain to everyone why black lives matter but White lives don't? Why its OK to import non-Whites into White countries or even why its OK to exterminate the White race? Show us your social justice warrior virtue.


I'm going to stop after this, but I'll play along this far. Also "anonymous" is a nice touch. I'll look up your hash but I don't care who I'm responding to right now.

I said that the black experience in this country is different. It is. A white guy who is Jewish says that he takes that into consideration. He does.

But because I say this you, anonymous, say that I don't think that White lives matter as much as Black lives.

I'll tell you one thing I've learned on the internet. People who capitalize Black tend to be racist.

So you won't "unite" me. I look white, but who knows who is in my gene pool. Whiteness does not inform my thinking. Western values, yes. The Enlightenment, yes. Samurai movies, also yes, but I'm pretty sure I'm not Japanese.

The hostility is axiomatic, and you are being obtuse by not recognizing it.

In reality the only rational view is that Whiteness is ridiculous and Blackness is ridiculous.

But accepting that there is something extra about Blackness is the height of virtue signalling, and reinforces the the sense of "other" (sorry Simone) that is so destructive.

You seem to appreciate the prayer and faith life of your Pentecostal cleaning woman. Unless they have their services in another language, ask if you can go visit her church. People always like it when you say, "Can i come visit your church?"

There was a dear home health aide who was helping with an elderly woman in the first church I served. She was a very strong Christian from Haiti. She said to me "You should come to my church sometime to visit. The services aren't too long-only about 2 hours." I smiled inwardly thinking of people who want church to be over in a hour-no longer. I never got there though because I would have had to arrive late

Posted by: Bandersnatch at February 12, 2018 05:40 PM (fuK7c)

========

Allow me to intrude in the interests of being irenic.

In principle, there's nothing for any basis for *any* demographic group to "unite" given the ethos of this country.

But what if there's an attempt to change that, to persecute one group and it is based on race. The response will have to be put in racial terms.

If race A is persecuted for being race A, a response of "We as race A unite against this persecution" is perfectly reasonable.

If black people living in Jim Crow times say "we unite as blacks against being lynched", that is not racist because they frame it only in terms of being black. It is their oppressors who force them to frame it that way.

Notice in my formulation I said 'A', meaning the principle is valid no matter what race is substituted for A.

Well, if whites are discriminated against just for being white, their response will have to take into account their race. It is no more racist for them to note this than it is for blacks being enslaved or lynched to note that this is happening because they are black. It is people who propose unjust laws and regulations who force them to put it in such terms.

when any defense of white people is akin to white S or P, then there's a problem because it's not just that white devils are evil...the whiteness of american history (sorry about it) is also a problem that needs to be destroyed.

so. obviously boomers are too old and senile and guilt ridden to care. Millenial men is an oxymoron. But soon a new generation of white kids will wake up and who knows how they'll feel about being a hated minority in america. well. hated plurality, for as long as even that lasts.

anyway, us old folks are too guilt ridden to even consider such a future. but as Steyn would say, demographics is destiny and your kids will have serious choices to make.

When he came up to the ball, a young boy next to me gave Murray his hat to sign. Murray pretended to throw the hat over the edge of the cliff. Then he went and picked it up, autographed it and handed it to the kid and shook the kid's hand. That kid will never forget the encounter.

I have very little in common with many people here. I have different interests, passions, tastes and so on.

And yet, there are two things that I do share with probably everyone here. Respect for other people's beliefs and opinions and a love of this nation that minimally was set up to let us all do our own thing free from persecution.

And those are two VERY big things.

I am so heartened to hear that Bill Murray seems to be normal.

Reminds me of a story about my folks back in 1995. They were riding in an elevator by themselves at Lord and Taylor or Saks 5th Avenue and when the door opened, in stepped Bruce Willis. My dad was champing at the bit to say something but knew my mom, who was much more reserved, would've been peeved. Bruce turned to them, introduced himself and chatted them up for a minute or so before the elevator stopped and he got out.

He sounded like a real mensch.

421 Collectivists don't think of all of us as a collective, they take a bunch of people who may or may not have anything in common with them, and deem them part of the collective. Collectives are always a subgroup, not everyone.

Surely, it's a flavor of tribalism. But, when someone that they've on their own decided should be part of their collective does something that goes against the collective, they see that person as a traitor to the tribe. So a black man who is a Republican is worse than a white man who is a republican. Because White men are part of the republican collective, but the black man is a traitor to the leftist tribe.

That said, quite a lot of the left doesn't consider white men to be part of the left's collective. Which means, if you're a white man and associate yourself with them, they consider you a traitor to the Republican collective. They might treat you well, as traitors are often treated well by the enemies they side with, but they must always remember, they'll never be trusted. In general, the powers that be (which are often the same white males) will see these people as useful idiots. And you know what happens to useful idiots when they're no longer useful.

434 Ugh. I don't get what makes people look at a mostly Caucasian community and think "There's something wrong here! It must needs be more diverse!" I've lived in Lawn Guyland Noo Yawk and I've seen how it's being flipped. I want out at this point. I'll probably move within a few months. I submit - there's nothing virtuous or desirable or aesthetic about diversity in and of itself. You can have diversity (of opinion) among Caucasians. I don't get why people think diversity will necessarily a good thing that must be brought about, regardless of the costs. That's irrational.

435 t's culture not race. I couldn't careless the color of an immigrant who comes here the only thing I care about is if they assimilate to becoming an American.

So, you're half African? Does that mean you're the gay mulatto, Barry Soetoro? I'm sure you're familiar with the phrase "Politics is downstream from culture"? Well, "Culture is downstream from biology". People that want to focus on culture are either ignorant of genetics and race, or want to deny there is any genetic aspect to race. The majority of real researchers in IQ acknowledge that intelligence is at least 50% genetic. When you realize that a social culture is determined by the genetic characteristics of a particular group of people, you realize that racial traits are almost all genetically based. If someone virtue signals that there is no White race because there are different ethnicities within the White race but can somehow rationalize a "black" race, they just haven't thought it through, or do not have the capacity to understand it.

It won't be long before Jonah Goldberg writes a column about how Groundhog's Day was a shitty movie after all.

So, Bill Murray is retired.
Because his career is over.

440 A lot of these guys would essentially fall into the libertarian end of the pool.

Really, I don't understand leftist comics. They do realize, come the revolution, they will be shot first, because nothing about leftism is ever funny? And what sort of entertainer wants a lot of rules and regulations controlling everything they say and do?

441 Bill Murray once strolled into a Wendy's, approached a random guy eating alone, stole one of his fries and ate it, then told him, "No-one will ever believe you," and left.

Just kind of a cool, weird, random thing for a Hollywood legend to do.

It's not out of character for a guy who's famous for crashing regular folks' parties, either. Here's another funny thing he does...

He became good friends with screenwriter Christopher Golden when they worked together on Scrooged. Golden also wrote the script for Roadhouse, and later married Kelly Lynch, whom he met during that movie's production.

Anyway, wherever Murray happens to be in the world (and he travels a lot), he always checks the local TV listings for Roadhouse. He'll watch it at whatever time it's on, and during the sex scene he calls Golden and informs him, "Your wife is having sex with Patrick Swayze right now!" Golden has been awakened at 3am by such calls before.

442 Bill Murray totally slayed in the Meatballs movie from the 70s. I love him.
