The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Yes! Please keep accusing everyone and everything of being racist. The quicker that stupid word leaves the lexicon the better. When milk and shoes and wide (or narrow) lapels and "niggardly" and black holes and Devil's Food Cake can be accused of being racist, then the word is useless and should be retired.

But the interesting question is: "Who gets to decide what is racist?" When the various Indian nations around Washington DC are ambivalent about the name "Washington Redskins," is it really up to White liberals in the offices of the Washington Post to step in and decide? What is that, the modern version of "The White Man's Burden?"

Minorities Don't Believe Trump Is a Racist

I know the NY Times disagrees, but it is entirely possible that President Trump doesn't give a rat's ass what color or ethnicity people are, and his obsessive focus is on whether they agree with and support his policies.

That's why these ridiculous accusations can be debunked so easily, and why the possibly even stupider ANTI-SEMITE! charges are patently comical. The enthusiastic support that the President has expressed for Israel is difficult to ignore, yet the media seems to manage it rather well. Amazing.

I was going to make the point that we should judge the President by his actions and not his words, but that simply isn't fair or rational. His statements about Charlottesville and sending Tlaib and Omar back where they came from are excellent examples of his words being mangled by a hostile press. What he said was fine; what was reported was not.

So...record minority employment, rising wages, and a president who isn't afraid to fight back against his enemies (and win!) seems to be more important than vague charges of racism leveled by the usual suspects, based on nothing more than curiously and disingenuously edited snippets of speeches and comments.

Whether this translates to electoral success within the various minority communities remains to be seen. Do I expect Trump landslides in Detroit and Newark and Oakland? No, of course not. But I am cautiously optimistic that there are a few percentage points to be had, and perhaps more importantly, a failure in the traditional Democrat GOTV efforts in these areas.

******

Yeah...Twitter suspended me, and I have no idea why. Hopefully it was triggering and insulting to some weak-kneed SJW or progressive pundit. But now that I think about it, it is possible that my "Fredo" tweet to Chris Cuomo may have done it. I also suggested that it really wasn't fair to his brother Andrew Cuomo, who is also an idiot.

In 2014, Pew asked whether it was more important to "[protect] the right of Americans to own guns or [control] gun ownership." Hispanics favored gun control by 62 percent to 36 percent and blacks by 71 percent to 26 percent. Whites supported gun rights by 59 percent to 39 percent.

Professor Adam Winkler at UCLA wrote in 2015 that the "NRA's fall" is inevitable due to "demographics." He said 80 percent of registered Asian American voters want stricter gun laws, as well as majorities of blacks and Hispanics. Unless it compromised, Professor Walker says, the NRA is "likely to become increasingly marginalized in a changing America."

If mass non-white immigration continues, he's right. Democrats link guns to "white nationalist terrorists," so whites would be the first to lose Second Amendment rights, but if Democrats have their way, no private citizen will own guns.

Depends on what you mean by "support". When it comes to people who work for him, I doubt Trump gives a FRA whether you agree with him, just that you implement his policies effectively. If you agree with him but are ineffective, you're gone.

31 In the olden days of yore, the dreaming-time, the long long ago, the farback and yonder, those heady days of the early 1990's, I was raised to believe that racism meant hating someone based only on the color of their skin and that we should strive to live by the Golden Rule, to treat others as we would have them treat us.

How stupid we were then - of course now we know that only white people can be racist by definition, and pretty much everything we do is racist. I learned to love Big Brother.

All kinds of increased gun control often polls well, especially "universal background checks". The problem is that virtually no one bases their votes on it in any surprising way. It always ends up being issue 13 or so in importance to most voters.

53 The word "racism" and it's various forms was coined early in the 20th century, and was always a rhetorical device to shut down debate and to anathematize in-group preference. It was always a political weapon, and was never used in good faith.

The charge of racism, especially the claim that only white people can be racist, is, along with the term 'white supremacist' or 'white nationalist', a simple declaration of war, with the implication that there can only be one end to that war.

It's not a pleasant way to look at things, but I've been waiting for forty years of efforts made to placate the race hustlers, to see if things improve, and nothing does any good. I hope I'm wrong, and the other side will begin disputing in good faith, but I have almost no illusions left.

59 According to modern Critical Theory, MLK would not have been a racist (because, as a colored person, he was not in a position of power), but he would have been espousing racist ideals.

Judging a man by the content of his character alone, with the color of his skin not being a factor (e.g., "colorblindness") is racist. Such attitudes are regressive, because they deny the lived experience and identity of minorities.

You now *must* judge a man at least partially by the color of his skin - that is, you *must* be a racist - in order to be woke. The judgement of *you* in this case, is not whether you're being a racist but if you're being racist the right way according to woke rules.

This, I think, has as much to do with the increasing uselessness of the "YOU'RE A RACIST" epithet as does it's general overuse over the past 30ish years. Not only do they claim everyone in the majority is a racist, the also claim minorities are incapable of racism - all while espousing flatly racist ideas that somehow not racist because it's the right kind of racism according to the Rules of Wokeness that only they know.

Screw 'em.

65 @37, I wouldn't necessarily disbelieve that statistics, I just don't care. Gun crime is almost exclusively a minority problem (there's a reason 98% of violent and gun related arrests in NYC are non-white). Those communities overwhelming have a problem with guns -- but those guns are almost all stolen and / or illegally acquired, so it's not like more laws would actually help anything. Add in the "no snitch" culture, and you have a major problem that doesn't have a PC fix.

The wish for more laws is just wishcasting -- if someone (else) would just do something....

The Jews and the Christians are the same thing from their standpoint. The hardcore progressives despise Western liberalism, and Western liberalism - individual rights, notions of citizenship, enterprise, the whole magilla - are rooted in those faiths. If you're freedom-hating, anti-Western, hard-Progressive weasel, they are both the enemy and effectively indistinguishable.

Next morning he goes out to the back 40 and sure enough a bus load of academics had crashed there. He got back told his wife she was right and that he would call the sheriff tomorrow. The next day he called the sheriff and the sheriff said he would be out the next day.
When the sheriff showed up the next day he asked the farmer's wife where the farmer was. She said he was out at the back 40 near the bus crash. The sheriff went out to the back 40 just as the farmer wa finishing up burying the last of the academics. The sheriff asks if any of the academics was still alive. The farmer says yeah some of them said they were but you know how academics lie.

97 >>So...record minority employment, rising wages, and a president who isn't afraid to fight back against his enemies (and win!) seems to be more important than vague charges of racism leveled by the usual suspects, based on nothing more than curiously and disingenuously edited snippets of speeches and comments.


Trump doesn't do most things/talk about most things in terms of race, except when he's bragging about his accomplishments ("Highest black employment ever, folks!).

For example, did he mention race at all when he made a stink about Baltimore? Did he mention race when getting that hiphop guy home from Sweden, or when he got the 3 basketball players home from China? Maybe I'm just oblivious to it, but he refuses to go racial when the Democrats/MSM are living, breathing an Intersectional-based reality.

This is probably why I see tweets with" Not voting Democrat in 2020. Nothing you can do about it."

There's no hashtag, so I have no idea how big or small a trend this is. However, this feels like the beginning of a preference cascade for at least one demographic that used to be ~98% owned by the Democrats. They may never become Republicans, but they are walking away, as Brandon Straka has done.

107 there are certain buzzwords that have impact, usually formulated by the leftist media, perhaps first emanating out of the DNC, where plotters like Creamer make devious plans.


So whether Trump deliberately throws those words out there, and causes them to be broken for the left ... idk. Maybe. I hadn't given much thought to the word "loyalty" ... but for Jews to support the left's destruction of Israel seems rather odd.


The old "loyalty oath" was more anti-communist ... iirc teachers were asked to take that oath or something. Kennedy was accused of perhaps having dual loyalty ... to the Pope and to US. But there is real concern about people that have loyalty to anti-American things. And the Soviets tried to invade our culture to get Americans to be loyal to Soviet infiltrated themes.


Education and respect for your commie core teacher, for example. And now the Catholic church, and loyalty to the commie pope. Anti-establishment was good in the 60's when they were breaking/infiltrating, but now loyalty to BigGov is required when it was CommieObama. Not to PrezTrump/AmericaFirst, but to GlobalGovernance overriding Trump.


Funny that Trump ran on AmericaFirst ... and somehow that is now loyalty to WhitePower. They demand we revere the Coup and Comey and Mueller mobsters as real America, but demand we hate "RacistTrump". It is quite the remarkable PsyOp being played out. Trump using the Loyalty word breaks some memes ... we will see where it goes.

152 No one cares, but a thought:

I have an appreciation for movies, but I am sick to fucking death of Marvel. It's not the movies themselves, it's the fact that if someone in the general culture talks about movies, 90% of the conversations are about Marvel. It's like for 90% of the people in the world there are no movies in existence other than Marvel (and Star Wars and other superheroes, to put a finer point on it).

It's a tendency that narrows these people's focus on a tiny tiny slice of cinema while willfully putting aside over a hundred damn years of movies from dozens of countries.

"I love movies!"

"What was the last thing you saw?"

"Captain Marvel! And then Avengers! And then Black Panther! What about you?"

"Wait Until Dark."

"What's that?"

"A really good thriller from the 60s starring Audrey Hepburn."

"Oh, I bet it was nice."

"Interested in seeing it?"

"Not really."

Don't get me wrong. The superhero genre is something that I have enjoyed and plan on continuing to enjoy. I'm not shitting on the movies themselves, it's the tendency of people to focus solely on it. I honestly can't talk about movies with people in real life because I start talking about anything other than the current zeitgeist and they're eyes glaze over. No, I don't expect people to be as into movies as I am, but if you think you like the medium, maybe you should try something other than a corporate product?

Ugh...random rant off.

Partly, probably. But there's also the "correlation is not causation" problem and the "these questions are YUGELY multi-variant and virtually impossible to understand in any controlled manner" problem. A finding today may look good until somebody comes and blows it apart tomorrow.

Add to that the grant money complex and the will to power and you end up in this kind of problem because everyone wants policy to be made around *their* findings. If they get it, then those findings must be defended at all costs against being blown apart.

For the biggest example, see the "climate change" crowd.

230 Junior's second day of kindergarten started better than the first, where he clammed up and just started crying as Dolley and I were about to leave.

Parents aren't allowed to take kids to their classrooms after the first day, so I had to drop him off at the door. I was terrified that he would clam up again and refuse to movie, but he gave me the customary hug and kiss and just started walking in. I watched him until he turned the corner and went out of sight. Maybe I'll be able to just kick him out of the car sooner than I realized, instead of parking and walking him to the door.

People really need to go back to school and learn the meaning of words. The onus isn't on me to determine what you meant.

The left wants to start throwing around words like "destroy" and "war" etc, I'm going to take them at face value and proceed accordingly.

I'm nearing the end of my QT marathon, so I've seen a good bit of his acting recently. I really liked him as Jimmy in Pulp Fiction, but his evil soldier in (Rodriguez's) Planet Terror is cringey. I don't know what to think of how he would have done Roat.

I didn't do kindergarten, but in first grade, when several kids were called by name and got up and left, I thought they were getting to go outside to play. Later I realized they were last year's first-graders being called to their new second-grade classroom.

I used that experience in my short story "Dead in First Grade" that appears in this new anthology: https://tinyurl.com/y57m8z27


(Note that I mention it here only because the editor, Oren Litwin, posted here some months back, requesting submissions, and that was how I heard about the anthology.)

As a grade schooler, my little guy would run down the driveway, cross the road and stop and give me a little wave before he jumped on the bus.

The last time he deployed I saw him off at the airport. Right before he walked into the jetway, he turned and, I swear, gave me the same little wave as he did when he was six.

Damn, that got me right in the feels. That stuff never leaves you.

Gillette lost me as a customer and never going back. Switched back to a vintage double-edged safety razor. I can buy 25 German-made blades for about $13. Gillette wants $30 for a half-dozen Chinese-made cartridges. I get a closer shave for less money.
