Wednesday Morning Rant

mannixape2.jpg

Speaking Lies for Power

Yesterday, one of the Morons (I forget who specifically, and beg your forgiveness) posted a link to Not The Bee where they called out a particularly insane headline - and even more insane article - from The Nation. The headline is indeed a doozy:

Racism Can Kill Black People Even When a Black Finger Pulls the Trigger
The surprising thing isn't the headline, but the article itself. Upon reading the headline, I assumed I knew what this would be and, as rarely happens with my initial assumption about a modern leftist argument, I was wrong.

I assumed that the article was going to make a variant of the "internalized hatred" argument that was developed by the feminists, who have for years accused non-feminist (or, even worse, anti-feminist) women of suffering from "internalized misogyny." They were brainwashed by the patriarchy and, though dangerous and in need of correction, are in a sense double victims. This argument has been portable and is semi-regularly applied to racial matters, with "internalized white supremacy" or "psychological colonization" and the like.

But that is not what the article says. The article is a story about a woman who was shot at a parade in New Orleans more than a decade ago, and the rationalization of violence as white society's fault. Once you slog through the meandering prose, the actual argument finally starts showing up:

To Cotton, Black lives mattered even if a Black person had done something reprehensible, like shooting into a peaceful crowd, because, she later told me, "racism can kill Black people even when a Black finger pulls the trigger." The gunman seen firing into the crowd in the Mother's Day video "clearly made horrible choices that have ruined his life," she continued. "But he didn't do that in a vacuum. This city and this country created that vacuum."
Far from the "internalized white supremacy" argument I was expecting, this article makes the "original sin" argument. The country is guilty from birth, and so are all white people within it:
Implanted long before the birth of the nation, the twin evils of racism and slavery exposed the contradiction between America's lofty ideals -- "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal" -- and the undeniable reality that white people built the country by enslaving and brutalizing millions of African Americans and slaughtering and stealing the land of countless Native Americans.
Ah, yes. But of course. This argument is even more tired. So the country is plagued with original sin, but what of the truly guilty? "The country" is a bit amorphous, isn't it? Such an argument needs a specific target. Well, the article provides one:
... until America, especially white America, honestly faces what race and slavery have done, and still do, to the country, America will not be free of its original sin. Like an infected, untended wound, the dilemma will keep bubbling to the surface, manifesting in everything from a Mother's Day shooting in New Orleans, to the continuing murders of Black people by police and vigilantes, to the presidential election -- and now, in 2024, possible reelection -- of a white supremacist whose fellow neo-Confederates openly endorse waging a second civil war to "make America great again."
We got a three-fer! It's America's fault most generally, it's white people's fault more specifically and it's Donald Trump's fault most specifically. Ignore that the event in the article happened early in the second Obama Administration. Never mind that it that it was a drug-related gang shootout. The blame belongs to Trump and his "neo-Confederates" now.

The article itself is fairly incoherent and meandering, with bits and pieces all over the place. It's hard to separate the preamble and background information from the crux of the article because everything is scattered around throughout. The writer probably thinks he's being "literary" or somesuch, but he merely produced a mess of words. I suppose that is to be expected given the depth and quality of the argument.

Gang-bangers who perforate a parade during a drug dispute don't do it because of racism. No external force put their fingers on the triggers. Rationalizing away as victims of circumstance the reckless and depraved gangsters who shot up a parade not only solves nothing, it encourages more of the same.

Telling the perpetrator "it isn't your fault, The Man made you do it" and telling the victim "it wasn't his fault, it was The Man's fault" is a three-fold evil. The perpetrators get a pass, the innocent victims get no justice, the uninvolved stranger gets the blame and nothing gets better.

Yet this is what self-described "principled" and "progressive" magazines that "value facts and transparency" and "speak truth to power to build a more just society" promote.

Please specify what "honestly faces" means in that sentence. That demand.
We've lived through 202 BLM riots, where billions in damage was allowed in order to, what I had assumed, was "honestly face" what race and slavery had done.
Really, they keep saying we have to have a "national conversation" (at least back with Obama), now we must "honestly face" -- what specifically do they want? Because I have the impression that nothing we do will ever be enough for the activists. This started back with MLK and Malcom X, right? We've been facing this since the 60's, so for 60 years now. When will it be enough?

He takes a lot of liberties. At the start of the third excerpt, there is an ellipsis. If you click through to the article, you'll see that the part I omitted is:
Cotton believed that

Maybe she did, maybe she didn't. I don't know. I didn't know her. Never met her. But the author of this piece *asserts* that all that followed - racist original sin, oppressive motivation for black-on-black violence, "vigilante" murder of blacks, Donald Trump as the patron saint of racists, etc. - was according to the belief of his subject. Despite this, he provides no quotes or context. Just the assertion.

That's why I made the editorial decision to omit the "Cotton believed that ..." lead-in to the screed. He provides little to no evidence that she did. It reads as pure projection, and I suspect very strongly that it is.

**clears throat**

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."

Are you Jewish? If so, then you're a feelthy Joo and the racism industry hates you. If not, then you're a non-Jewish German and, therefore, automatically a Nazi.

What's that you say, your family left Germany prior to the rise of Nazism? Doesn't matter. The concept of racial original sin requires that every who doesn't look like an approved category is evil, always and forever, without redemption.

Remember when Sandra Day O'Connor held in the Bakke decision that affirmative action is illegal, but could be tolerated for twenty-five years to right historic social wrongs?

That was in 1978.

It will be enough when it stops working. Not before. It doesn't matter what is given in return - money, power, jobs, death to the enemy, self-abasement, whatever - because the core is that the argument is accepted at face value and treated as legitimate.

An endless supply of money.

And none of these people realize that reparations will not be individual checks sent out to them. It will be a government superfund from which the activists, bureaucrats, NGOs will skim almost all of it. It will be the equivalent of a class action suite where millions, billions are awarded and you get a check in the mail for $1.62.

There is a logic to it. According to absolutely everything in the modern media, blacks - particularly American blacks - are the highest form of humanity. They approach perfection in every category. Therefore, should any American black fail, in any way, for any reason, it MUST have been caused by an external force and, since their purity is derived from their blackness, that force holding them back must be white.

If your goal is to achieve wealth/fame/whatever they imagine their being held back from without ever examining themselves and their own culpability, it's a potent drug.

They are less sinful.

Portland has gone through paroxysms of guilt because a black neighborhood was partially cleared in the 1960's to build a freeway, expand a hospital, and build a sports arena - politicians regularly bewail this, there are special subsidies to encourage the descendants of people who lived there to move back, etc.

At about the same time, a densely populated Jewish/Italian neighborhood just south of downtown was completely cleared to build the state university and to build a performance hall and parks.

No Portland politician ever apologizes for that.

121 Dr. Masanori Fukushima has called on the World Health Organization to lead an investigation of the harmful outcomes of the COVID shots.

He pointed out that “turbo cancers,” a kind “previously unseen by doctors” that progress extremely quickly and are typically in stage four by the time they are diagnosed, have started to appear after the jab rollouts. These “turbo cancers” are emerging along with excess mortality due to cancer in general, which Fukushima says cannot be explained only by lost opportunities for screenings or treatment during the COVID outbreak.

As a tragic example of the fatal danger of the COVID shots, the oncologist shared the story of a 28-year-old man who was found dead by his wife when she tried to wake him in the morning, five days after he received his second Pfizer shot.

“The doctor who did the autopsy said that when he tried to remove the heart, it was soft and had disintegrated,” Fukushima said. “And even just one case like this shows how dangerous this vaccine can be.”

128 In a strikingly candid interview with Slate, Hawaii Supreme Court Justice Todd Eddins delivered a scathing critique of the U.S. Supreme Court, denouncing its conservative justices for what he views as an “incredibly dishonest” application of the legal philosophy of originalism. Justice Eddins’ blunt comments come as the nation’s highest court faces plummeting approval ratings and criticism over recent decisions that have upended established precedents.

His ruling in the State v. Wilson case was emblematic of his frustration, wherein he accused the Supreme Court justices of cherry-picking historical facts to support their decisions on gun rights.

In the Wilson opinion, Eddins asserted that the Supreme Court had “totally disregarded the text, history, tradition, and purpose of the Second Amendment.” He went on to argue that this approach revives “the value judgments of a racist, misogynistic, homophobic society and constrains the value judgments of contemporary judges,” a critique that echoes the concerns of some legal scholars who decry the originalist philosophy as out of touch with modern values.

147 There is a logic to it. According to absolutely everything in the modern media, blacks - particularly American blacks - are the highest form of humanity.

Remember when Harvard was doing affirmative action in admissions by assigning scores for "personality"?

Black people had tons of personality - they were just the most personable people possible.

Asians, on the other hand, were completely devoid of personality. Not really human, really.

148 As a tragic example of the fatal danger of the COVID shots, the oncologist shared the story of a 28-year-old man who was found dead by his wife when she tried to wake him in the morning, five days after he received his second Pfizer shot.

“The doctor who did the autopsy said that when he tried to remove the heart, it was soft and had disintegrated,” Fukushima said. “And even just one case like this shows how dangerous this vaccine can be.”


Funny how we asshole commenters on a Smart Military Blog knew the kung flu shot was poison from the start, and all the experts assured us there was nothing to worry about and anyone who objected was a conspiracy-theorist science-denier.

I would love to see POTUS Trump send a battalion of Marines to kick in Fauci's door and drag the bastard off to solitary in Gitmo for the rest of his days, but of, course, Mini-Mengele will die peacefully in his sleep.

The terrorists also fired from the logistics area and using vehicles.

#Hamas's use of the aid distribution center and UN vehicles is a result of the UN's cooperation with the terrorist organization Hamas and the support that UNRWA gives to the terrorist organizations in Gaza.

209 Someone posted a compilation of the data from Nexis/Lexis a few months ago, the number of times a variety of Woke words started appearing in corporate media articles, and showed a massively significant rise in these articles, across the board, in multiple publications, in all the variety of Woke topics.

It all occurred in 2012, and it's been sustained at that high level ever since.

In other words, this is an op. And in part, the op is to try to sew racial divides, so white people hate black people, and black people hate white people, and all the rest of the races hate all the rest of the races.

@VinceCoglianese
The actual Biden debate news today:
Biden is refusing to debate Trump in front of an audience of voters.
His campaign is demanding big guardrails for Biden, including:
- No audience.
- No RFK Jr.
- No Trump remarks during Biden's answers.
- Only Biden-friendly outlets & anchors can moderate (from CBS, ABC, CNN or Telemundo).

-
It's not fair unless Joe can cheat.

There is always someone to say no to the bad ideas. Always.

Trump reads a room better than any politician ever has. It is the source of his power. If the room (the country) says no, that’s no.

He also knows the only way he wins in the eyes of history is by doing a great job for the country. All the “Trump will steal muh Democracy” nonsense is DNC propaganda to persuade voters who still think the political news they consume is real.

Few thoughts during the first break in the Trump trial today (more to come):
- The only thing more depressing than this courtroom is what’s happening inside it. In that sense, it’s fitting. Feels Kafka-esque.
- It seems like the prosecution’s strategy is they’re trying to bore the jury into conviction. That seems to be the prosecution’s top achievement today: boredom.
- No one can tell you what exactly Trump is being prosecuted for. After this morning’s testimony from Cohen, it’s now *LESS* clear than ever.
- There was an hour of testimony establishing that *Cohen* was the one who submitted the invoices that he said were false. If there’s one person who falsified business records, that’s Michael Cohen…which leaves Trump’s alleged “violation” less clear than ever.
- It was alarming to see some glaring violations of attorney-client privilege in Cohen’s testimony against Trump. Prosecutors asked Cohen to testify about matters relating to Trump during periods where Cohen was his attorney & Trump was his client.
