Ooobie on Everything

Oh, for heaven’s sake. Now it’s the rage in America to march against freedom of speech

I have tried mightily not to return to the pages of this blog. Frankly, it was all boringly repetitive. How many times can you say that the Russia story is bogus, made up for political goals, and provide clues, before you decide nobody in this country cares? It is far easier to write off the disastrous Clinton campaign to treachery than it is to accept that you boobs on the left chose a lemon for your honey. I was bored with the deliberately provoked angst over Ernst Blofeld aka Vladimir Putin trying to take over the world. I never found a convincing answer to the question: how can Russia be so third-rate and so first-rate at the same time? I never heard an answer of any kind to “where is the proof that Russia did any of the things you accuse it of?” and certainly not to the question, “where did Russia change any election results in any precinct in the country?” I got tired of asking. The left-provoked hysteria made the American air rancid, like bad breath. I decided I’d let Judicial Watch do the digging and asking for me.

I was (and am!) tired of the women in this country, who have all the opportunities a woman could want and are still whining because the country didn’t hand them the presidency. They feel offended, and I’m offended by their offense. I’d say taking their side and my side together, every woman in America is now offended by something. And as an aside, I was really tired of women who marched so jolly wearing a knit hat said to be a pussy, but which looked nothing like any definition of the word. The very idea of such an antic points to the essentially juvenile nature of the left and its useful fools.

I am tired of the men who aren’t men at all, but think it is okay to be a “little gay.” Although gay is so tame. Who cares about gay? Today we have women who mutilate themselves by taking male hormones, cutting off their breasts and hanging on to the other stuff, and no doubt many “men” as well. As Cher’s benighted daughter said, she wasn’t giving up her fun as a woman just because she wants to be a man. No real commitment there, if you ask me.  I have seen two stories in which such a creature has given birth after “becoming” male. Think of that poor child. In any humane state, such critters would be sterilized at the same time as their sex change operation, even if only partial. This will prevent any poor child from being conceived by such people. Who is paying for all this medical experimentation? When I was young, insurance companies would not even pay for infertility treatments for women!

I am tired of the suffocating hypocrisy of the left, on all matters, but Charlottesville and Boston come to mind. I remain floored that 15000 people came out and marched against freedom of speech. That’s the flat truth of the matter, no matter how the media gussies it up. The licensed demonstrators put out a list of “rules” in advance that stated their goal of giving support to the First Amendment and advised that demonstrators were not to bring any  type of arm or carry  any type of hate paraphernalia, not to provoke or be provoked, etc. So as not to invade the safe space of all those Boston folks so afraid of free speech, I guess. In any case, people were riled up that there was still somebody not cowed enough to shut up about free speech, which everybody knows is just a code name for racism, insensitivity, cultural buffoonery, ignorance, homophobia, and so on. This thus required a mob of 15000 to show those licensed demonstrators who was boss and warn they better shut up. And guess what? The licensed demonstrators were frightened by the mob and left, taking Freedom of Speech with them.

Oh, yes, Boston and its famed university are well down that slippery slope to irrelevance and even treachery to the US Constitution. Go Sox!

Meantime, those wise men who made our country great, and led great conflicts at risk of life, but who were not lucky enough to be born in the 21st c. with its cultural nuances and deep morality, are having their statues torn down (as if Thomas Jefferson gives a fuck). And pulled down by people who look like potential deportees or escaped criminals, who have zero understanding of US history or our cultural values (or those that were). Our history is to be rewritten by idiots.

What really rankles most is the creeps we somehow elected to the US Congress when they were posing as conservatives– where the hell does Rubio get off saying it’s all right to use violence against people whose messages you don’t like? Viva Fidel! He won’t be getting my vote or my measly ten bucks this next time. He can go home to Cuba, which I understand is now a free country or what he might accept as such. And Jeff Flake — elected on a wave of Tea Party support and now turned full scale progressive. Open borders (and strong backs!). Tell us Jeff Flake — what did you do for Arizona lately? You didn’t produce a health-care bill, did you? Or tax reform? But you found time to carry on a tirade against the President. I hope you don’t make it through the next Arizona primary and if you do, that you lose your seat. I’d rather an honest communist sitting in Congress than a false friend such as you.

Now we can come to the source of many of my frustrations, the President himself. I must say, even when I was harsh toward him, I was hopeful that the dynamism that made him successful in business would translate to the presidency. I am skeptical. And I am skeptical despite granting that on certain things he has fulfilled his campaign pledges or is  making progress to that end, and that his policies have actually worked (and will in time develop their own problems, as always will happen). Look at the drop in illegal immigration, which is making business scream in pain and leave advisory councils by the dozens. (How about an actual law to let workers sans families in to fill those empty spots and earn some money?)

I think Kelly has put an end to the harmful leaks, but he seems to be killing diversity of thought in the process. Steve Bannon’s departure is really, as Bannon himself said, the end of the “MAGA” period of Trump’s presidency. Slowly but surely Trump is being herded into the smooth notch where all the interests of the Elite and the Dark State meet. He is still resistant on the foreign war bit, but give his enemies (and ours) time.

If all Trump is doing is bringing some order to his policy-making process, then well and good. I said from the start that Trump had better be prepared to deal with all the variant outlooks he was putting on his staff and Cabinet, and he was certainly not prepared or able to do so. So Kelly’s iron fist is good, for now. On the other hand, I also see an emerging pattern in which all the conservatives are herded out of the White House and its environs to give place to those minions of the Deep State who never gave up occupancy. If that is the case, then I’m with Bannon — we have a war on to save the ideas that were behind Trump’s win; all we lack is a leader.

 

 


On Violence: Man Against Man, Government Against All

statue 1I’m going to write today about our rapidly developing autocracy (Government for  The People, By the Vanguard) and our unraveling society. I will add my two cents  to the words flowing from the figurative pens of every other political  commentator in America, even if it seems a waste of time to express my views when others are saying the same things and far more eloquently. But sometimes  you write or speak not because your voice is unique, but because you want to be part of a chorus of anger and outrage.

Harried by the Mob: Knockout and Other Violent Amusements of America’s Youth

flash mobI greatly enjoyed the  movie Hunger Games. It was a spell-binding yarn about the dispossessed and disempowered scoring against the masters who control their lives. The main theme of the book (and film) is the tyranny of the winners over the losers, the strong over the weak, the rich over the poor. But there is another subtext, and it is violence. The tyrants use violence in Hunger Games they way the Romans used it in the arena, to give the downtrodden something to live for — a huge dose of surrogate cruelty that stirs the blood and makes all your suffering somehow worthwhile, because there — down there in the arena — is somebody whose life is worse than your own. Not only that, but the Emperor generously gives you the right to determine whether the man in the pit lives or dies a gruesome death. The crowds had a lot of resentment to work off and it was the lucky gladiator who got out alive. Yes, the Romans had a perfect social pacifier, giving the masses free bread, clean water and the chance to watch somebody torn limb from limb on a weekly basis. It kept their system going for centuries.

I wonder if we have progressed at all from Roman times. Obviously we have technologically: what wouldn’t the Roman lords have given for instant communication and automated killing machines? Such things would have made it much easier for them to keep the discontented down and out. What I’m thinking about is character. Have we reached a point where we really respect other human beings and their private space and their basic rights, or is it all just more propaganda from the people with power? When the government itself doesn’t respect individual rights and only selectively punishes its citizens’ violations of individual rights, the very concept of “rights” begins to erode dangerously.

Have you heard about the latest rage, which is called knockout? It’s a simple game played by black youths that appeals even to those — or perhaps especially to those — with only marginal functioning intelligence. All it requires is a mob and a zeal for inflicting pain on people with the wrong skin color. In an article published on the WND website, Thomas Sowell writes that this “knockout game” has been played for years by young black gangs in other  cities and other states, against people besides Jews – the victims being either whites in general or people of Asian ancestry. Sowell also mentions that in some of the cities where this gang violence is popular, the participants call it Polar Bear Hunting in a reference to the color of the victims.

The New Arena is not a specific place, but all around us on the streets of our towns and cities. Teenagers mingle in crowds, zero in on those looking particularly vulnerable (the elderly, mothers with children, invalids), and then without warning crash forcefully into the chosen victims with their bodies. The sudden violent jolt knocks the victim to the ground. Goal!  Three of the victims of this game in three different cities have died from their injuries; in one case the victim died from head injuries when his head struck a curb and went straight through the bars of a bicycle rack. Oh, joy! The player in that case no doubt got one million bonus points for causing grave injury or death as well as despair to the surviving family. One hopes he also got a long stretch in prison.

Then we have flash mobs. I’m not referring to the all-race flash mobs of unsupervised kids running out the door to dance and party or do something non-violent, but to malicious mobs of black youths summoned for deliberate criminal acts, often assaults on whites that involve considerably more violent methods than knocking somebody off their feet. I’m talking about the mobs that converge on stores to destroy, loot and pillage or to beat somebody to death.  Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia:

Referred to as “flash robs,” “flash mob crimes,” “crime mobs,” or “flash mob violence” by the media, these mobs start with the intent or lead to the destruction of private property, robbery, violence, and personal injury. Mark Leary, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University, said, “the illegal and violent component is also not unlike ordinary crimes where a group of people do something illegal. What social media adds is the ability to recruit such a large group of people that individuals who would not rob a store or riot on their own feel freer to misbehave without being identified.

No surprise there, right? Mobs act just like…mobs. A  mob has no conscience. A mob has nothing but an appetite for violence. The scary thing is, mobs are no longer seen as the mindless hives of miscreants that they are, but have become fashionable and provoke hardly a whimper of protest from the mainstream media. Or at any rate, black mobs have become fashionable; a bunch of white guys in pointed hoods would not win the same silence from the media that those “mobs of color” have enjoyed. Here is what Lawyers.com has to say about it:

In 2011, flash mobs gathered in cities across the country and wreaked havoc. For the most part, the mobs were made up of teenagers, and they committed all sorts of crimes, from shoplifting to assault to robbery. For example:

  • In Philadelphia, flash mobs assaulted pedestrians and vandalized property. One participant pled guilty to aggravated assault for beating and stabbing a bicyclist. He faces 5 to 20 years in prison.
  • Flash mobs in Chicago are responsible for robberies and assaults, and even causing a McDonald’s restaurant to close for several hours.
  • In St. Paul, Minnesota, flash mobs targeted convenient stores, stealing whatever they could and fleeing before police could respond.

And then we have another manifestation of the thirst for violence among our youths: black and sometimes Hispanic gangs — not quite mobs — that rove America’s streets specifically looking for a defenseless white person to traumatize, torture, rape or murder. Here are some news items collated by MartinLutherKing.com (which also offered the lyrics of rap songs that urge their listeners to violence against whites):

In Denver, a white female teenager, Brandy Duval, is raped, sodomized, tortured with a broomstick and stabbed 28 times by a gang of six blacks and Hispanics. Her skull is caved in and corpse dumped into a ditch.

In Killeen, Texas, a white couple, Todd and Stacy Bagley are kidnapped on the way to church, lit on fire, burned to death and shot in the head by four blacks.

In Flint, Michigan, three white teenagers, Michael Carter, Dustin Kaiser and (girl’s name withheld by police) are attacked by six black youths. Carter is shot and killed. Kaiser is beaten and shot in the head, but recovers. The girl is forced to perform oral sex on her black attackers, pistol whipped and shot in the face.

In Jacksonville, Florida, a mentally retarded white man, Gregory Griffith, is beaten and stomped unconscious by blacks and died a few days later. The blacks admitted to the police beating Griffith because “he was white.”

I won’t bother to reprint the black rap lyrics, which would be merely spreading the poison. If you are interested in knowing what messages are being beamed out to America’s minority youths, you can check out Black Rappers Call on Blacks to Murder and Rape Whites at MartinLutherKing.com.

I have to wonder where the heads of the left-wing social engineers are lodged. This country is becoming a cauldron of racial animosity and race-related violence, this time with the blacks leading the charge, and many of this country’s leaders (and I mean Democrat leaders in first order) want to outlaw guns. Those rap songs talk about stabbing whitey, too. How about outlawing knives? Then we could all be using the plastic forks and knives they dole out to patients in a psychiatric institute, which would be appropriate to the asylum we are becoming.

When are we going to come to grips with the fact that hate speech and the hate feelings that inspire it are alive and well in America and growing in popularity? This isn’t about mass killers, often white and often young, who are off their rockers and on the loose because we don’t have a system to get them timely help. Their rage is color-blind and they kill anybody of any age and sex who happens to be in their line of fire. These violent amusements involve people who know better. As individuals, they would probably not engage in violent assaults, but they are freed from societal stigma when their crimes are committed under the umbrella of a mob. And they are encouraged by the failure of our media and our nation’s highest leaders to stand up and say this must stop. Where is that fount of wisdom and peace, Barack Obama, who has no problem flailing out at white racists? The silence about what is happening is an invitation to the beasts on the prowl to continue.

violent gamesYou would think that all these years after society said a resounding no to racially inspired violence, we would have left such things behind us. But it seems we are doomed to go down clawing each other’s eyes out. And our society is conspiring in it, feeding the urge to kill with games and music and movies and tv shows that make it all look so easy and so satisfying. How hard is it to grasp that giving kids a game whose sole point is to unleash hostility through simulated violence is likely to increase the chances that the kid, having grown bored with the fake stuff, will look for a chance to try it out in real life? How about those movies that are blowing guts and gore into the very souls of our children? In America, the blatant disrespect for the basic rights of the individual, chief among them the right to life, has become an epidemic. And if it isn’t stopped, it will spread until there really is a race war in the United States. And all the bogus “hate laws” that protect only certain groups and not everybody, and that focus on the incidental and not the fundamental, will not stop it.


Obama and Holder: Making Sure Racism is Alive and Well

race warsI was looking through my digital news sources this morning, searching for the latest case of black on white hate crimes. The most recent act of brutality involved a guy who looked a card short of a full deck who was murdered on a New York street by an angry (or perhaps bored) black guy who had publicly announced his intentions of attacking somebody white just before killing the victim. That incident came soon after an Australian kid who loved baseball was sent off to meet his Maker by a couple of bored black Neanderthals looking for a white boy to kill. I won’t go into chapter and verse on how many such deaths there have been over the past year, since I’m sure every one of my readers knows what I’m talking about. In any case, there won’t be a big gap before the next murder(s), because we are in the midst of a race war triggered by our First Black President and his multitude of pious black officials leading off with Eric Holder, head of the Department of Injustice.

How ironic that it is black racism that today is thriving. I pretty much passed through my late teens and adulthood (and now my golden years) hearing lectures on the evils of white racism from black people and left-wing whites who writhe with shame over Our Collective Guilt. We had to give blacks a big leg up in just about everything, since they had been kept down so long. How were we to know that this separate and entirely unequal treatment would continue long after that first generation of lucky recipients had raised kids and those kids had raised their kids? It seems like black folks just can’t get enough special privileges to make up for what their great-grandparents endured. Is it any wonder native Americans and now Hispanics have tried to get in on the act, too? Who wouldn’t? They just weren’t nearly as successful, although I’m thinking the Hispanics, especially all those in our country illegally, aren’t doing half bad.

sharptonBlacks learned from their shameless leaders, many of them sporting the title “Reverend,” how to play the race card for all it was worth. Not only were several generations of blacks given easy admission to the nation’s higher educational establishments (here’s looking at you, Obama), top jobs in the private sector, and good jobs in the USG, they learned something invaluable: how to shut white people up before they even said a word of protest. All they had to do was shout “racist!” and the white people scattered in silence. It got so bad that black demagogues were able to successfully argue that police shouldn’t be looking just for black criminals when a crime was seen with human eyes to have been committed by blacks. That was racist profiling. On the other hand, I never once heard of a round-up of black criminals when a white was known to have committed a crime; but that’s the way it was. We had to make up for the sins of our fathers by being totally stupid. Nothing showed up the iniquity of what white people were subjected to better than the case of Trayvon Martin, a strapping black young adult who was shot while trying to pound a fat Hispanic man into brain death. He was immediately transformed into a little kid who still sounded like a girl by the black community in general and especially by the black community organizer in the White House, who claimed to be both Trayvon Martin’s father and Trayvon Martin. (A little confusion there on father-son stuff.) Martin was a mere child victimized unfairly by (drum roll) a “white Hispanic.” It showed how successfully blacks had made the color of the white man’s skin an excuse for discrimination, disrespect, hatred and violence — skills our white black president had mastered as he climbed his way to the pinnacle of power.

Let’s face it, even before Obama and his crew of race-baiters showed up on the scene, the US had been primed for the first ever openly racist president and openly racist administration whose targets were white. In fact, if the US had not been so prepared to feel guilt at every turn, Obama would never have become president. How else to explain the election — twice — of a man of mediocre intelligence, no warmth, no experience, no abilities, and massive ego? White guilt.

obama race cardEvery demagogue needs his mob. What good is rabble-rousing without a rabble? Obama grew up with a virulent worm of racist anger gnawing at his innards, planted there by his absentee father back in Africa ranting against white colonialism. What a delightful surprise for him when he discovered that he could make profitable use of his burning resentment by stirring up black anger against whites in his corner of Chicago and then using their zealous approval to feather his own nest. His race goading came to him naturally and it led him to an astonishingly (unbelievably) fast rise to political power. And he sure knew how to capitalize  on the White Man’s Burden. He passed himself off as pretty much the only guy who could absolve white guilt toward blacks and the way to absolve it was for whites to vote him and his belligerent wife into the White House. So we shouldn’t be surprised that once elected he proved unable to let go of his security blanket. It was more of the same Marxist sloganeering tempered with a heavy dose of race-baiting — the idea that black people were owed by the white man. If after decades of special rights, black kids were still growing up in the midst of every type of criminal activity, held education in contempt, treated women like trash and used violence as an everyday tool —  well, that was really Whitey’s doing. (Sometimes, of course, he blamed Republicans, but “Republican” is nothing but a black person’s code word for racist.) Black people in his world view have no responsibilities, but their rights are legion.

black and white racismI’m frankly surprised it took so long for the hatred Obama was sowing among black Americans to blossom into today’s murderous campaign against whites. But the results of what our First Black President has done by igniting racial hatred have not yet been seen in their entirety. In the fullness of time, if the murdering rampage continues, there will be the inevitable response. Angry white people, tired of watching their government turn a blind eye to black on white violence, will cook up an answer of their own. And when that happens, my friends, all bets are off. It would be just the thing to finish off the US as any kind of pretender to world leadership — whites killing blacks, and blacks killing whites, all to the drums of hatred being pounded by people like Obama, and Holder, and Van Jones, and every black actor in Hollywood. And the New Ku Klux Klan.

I have to warn you: if that happens, we might get a NATO invasion or maybe just a teeny-tiny bombing campaign to put the white animals back in their cage. After all, human rights are a justification for anything and I’d hate to have to rely on European whites to call back the jets.


A Government Sunk in Racism

perez as foxA chill just ran down my spine. I was skimming through the latest developments in the “Get Whitey” campaign launched by Eric Holder when I came to a report of a conference call the government initiated to consult with (coordinate for the cameras) an assortment of federal officials and civil rights leaders (white-haters). I’m sure these leaders included agitators like Al Sharpton and maybe even Danny Glover. The man who convened the telephonic meeting was none other than the new Assistant AG Thomas Perez. Thanks to the Senate’s Supine Collaborators — a group extremely similar to the Gang of Eight Morons — Perez was confirmed in his new role and now we now have a Marxist and Wise Latino in charge of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division. Oh, creepy. This malnourished and homely leftist intellectual has absolutely no shame. He comes out of that time-honored Latino tradition of selling anything saleable. When Perez wants something, nothing gets in his way. Want me to drop a suit against you? No hay problema. Or maybe I can bring a suit against your enemy, just to make a point. There are no end of possibilities for the unprincipled Mr. Perez to create mischief in his new role. If he is stage-managing the Trayvon Martin fantasy, look out for trouble. We have a government riddled at the highest levels with racists.

I’d love to leave Zimmerman to history. He’s becoming as much a miscast icon as Trayvon Martin. Who would have guessed in a thousand years that two such ordinary people would become the focus of the nation? How incredibly stupid are we? These tragic things have become our entertainment, our version of the Roman Arena. It’s better than a reality show, only with very unattractive cast members. The more our social fabric rips apart, the deeper we immerse ourselves in false dramas. Hollywood and the infotainment industry can spin anything up by pitching a simple line — white/bad vs black/good, e.g. — and throwing in some action scenes (mobs). The more of us who eat it up, the more dramatic it all becomes. Lord, this is a filthy little world we are living in, and a lot of the mind rot is starting here. Made in the USA.

trThe most shameless aspect of the tale is the way the Black Community has behaved. Let’s call it out loud: the representatives of black America who are turning up to pillage and destroy, or just to threaten, speak volumes about the so-called culture that has grown from the Democrat Party plantation and zombie factory. Loud, foul-mouthed, belligerent, ignorant and uneducated, they seem to think that just because they wanted to send George Zimmerman to Death Row the jury had an obligation to agree. And if the jury didn’t agree, they have a right to torch the place or maybe beat the daylights out of some random white folks. These people are too stupid even to know they’re racists.

Looks to me like we’re headed into a period of heightened racial tensions in our country. The constant derisive treatment of whites by blacks and their facilitators, the USG’s use of race-baiting politics, and the active role played by the media in actually inciting conflict with highly inflammatory rhetoric and the doctoring of information all bode ill for our social peace. White people are beginning to react after a long period of passive acceptance of such treatment. There is plenty of tinder for a conflagration. Blacks shouldn’t think that a future rampage wouldn’t be met by a white backlash.

So, those are my scary thoughts of the day. On another subject, I hear some rumblings about a third party (suicide, but many people feel like slitting their wrists these days). It makes me worry that 2014 will not be as happy as the GOP is predicting. I’m not sure party leaders truly realize how alienated a huge part of their base is. It’s like John McCain and Lindsay Graham are from another planet. We’re tired of platitudes, of having our representatives act as if our views are primitive and unworthy of consideration. We’re tired of the exhortations to think clearly (shut up) while they collaborate in extinguishing our liberties. Wake up, GOP.

I think the administrative machine might be getting the message. I used to make generous contributions to everything GOP. I’ve saved a lot of money this year, but I’m getting a lot of junk mail from the GOP saying “payment overdue.” It’s a sentiment I share.

 

 


The Racial Outrage that No Longer Impresses

racism 2I am so bored with it all, so contemptuous anymore of the black community’s self-righteous and self-serving tantrums when things don’t go their way. These folks, the ones waving their fists and threatening to kill whitey or hound George Zimmerman to his grave if they can’t put him there themselves, are so beyond dignified mourning that their cause no longer has a thing to do with Trayvon Martin. This is just more thirst for revenge by thuggish stupid people whipped up by vicious demagogues and all that’s needed to go for whitey’s throat is a perceived slight or the refusal to judge things through a certain racially-tinted lens. The leaders of the pack, who have zero respect for law or order, are all too often false and corrupt men of  God who want nothing so much as personal glory and hopefully some material payoff down the line. We are in the midst of another outburst of violence from a bunch of people who are used to getting everything they want just by sticking their hands out and if they don’t get it, they’ll whup your white ass. Well, guess what? They didn’t get what they wanted this time around. Welcome to the crowd, Black America. We on the white side of things have had decades of deferring to whatever your black community wanted, swallowing a whole bunch of injustices, and getting shafted in the process. It’s time for equality. The same rules of law apply regardless of the color of your skin. If responsible politicians ruled our country, we could get that without violence. Guess not.

And one more word. As a Hispanic, I resent the idea that Latinos have to play the pawns for the State. We are whatever the government wants us to be –maybe we’re white and maybe we’re minority, whatever works at the moment. Zimmerman was a Hispanic. Where is the Hispanic Community in all this? Are you totally bought off? I wish Hispanics throughout the country would take stock of what happens to them if they ever have a run in with the poster children for the welfare state, our illustrious Black Community and their big-mouthed stars like Danny Glover and Morgan Freeman, not to mention card-carrying Marxists like Eartha Kitt and Harry Belafonte. You are definitely not Number One among the Democrat Party racial identity cells. Remember it.

Of course the absolute conviction that they have the right to punish white people because a jury failed to hand them the outcome they desired is fostered from the top down, from Obama the sham Constitutional lawyer (I doubt he could argue a case successfully) to the shameless and felonious Eric Holder, neither one of whom gives a damn about the white part of this country and actually incite racial hatreds. Both of them should be in court.

This is really the limit. Trayvon Martin wasn’t a kid, he was a good-sized male who had for all intents and purposes already reached his adulthood. He had an attitude. He didn’t like the white guy following him and he decided to teach him a lesson. It ended very badly. But Zimmerman didn’t go out looking to kill a black guy, and if two black men had been involved or two white men, the jury’s considered decision would have caused no controversy. The jury verdict has been degraded into the grist of racial politics because politicians and community organizers, encouraged by our US Government and taxpayer money, have chosen to gin up another race case to hype their black voters. And you better believe they want to use it as a wedge on the issue of stand-your-ground laws as the left pushes to overturn laws around the country. It is sick politics, the only kind our country seems to have anymore.

I’d like to remind the angry blacks threatening to burn the place down that this is exactly how millions of white Americans felt when the brutish OJ Simpson was acquitted. I heard one thick-skulled black at the State Department gloating after the acquittal at the time that the white bitch deserved it. What class. Well, now you guys know what disappointment feels like.

la riotsJust fyi, I’d say there are millions of white Americans who right now would probably be delighted to meet black violence with white violence. Tempers are frayed on all sides, not only among African-Americans. Whites are tired of being treated as some special category of vermin; there are civil rights in this country and they aren’t just for people of the right color or ethnic provenance. They are for everybody or nobody. Racial hatred incites racial hatred and I have never seen it so vividly proven as since Barack Hussein Obama came out of the absolute nowhere to become ruler of Amerika. I have never felt the power of pervasive racism as much as I do today. This is one of the greatest evils Obama has unleashed on our nation.

These are troubled times.

 


Our Color-Blinded World

 

racismIt seems to me that skin color or other physical characteristics are incidental to the whole racism thing. Such traits simply make it easier to lump together particular groups of people, but it is something else that prompts the persecutor’s desire to demean the group in question. The African slaves were all black, but that was incidental to the fact that they were all the lowest of the low, having to do whatever was required without complaint and without payment. Their own people had sold them and thus robbed them of their human dignity. It was not their skin color, but their position at the bottom of the societal pile that provoked the contempt for them. By contrast, in Russia in the 1700s, Tsar Peter the Great had an African slave whom he became fond of and allowed to live in freedom as part of the Tsar’s court. This man went on to marry a Russian noblewoman and from this union sprang the great Russian poet, Pushkin. The African had not been at the bottom of the pile, but at the top, even if his skin was black and he had been purchased. Because the Tsar deemed him worthy of respect and freedom, so did everybody else. If the situation with the slaves been reversed and Africans had taken white slaves, the whites would have been equally abused — because they would have been at the bottom of the pile. Color is a mere cataloguing convenience.

rothschildIn Germany, the Jews occupied a different but no less special position in society, being numerous among the wealthier citizens and having a significant interest in banking. When the Nazis were looking for someone to blame for Germany’s dire economic situation before the Second World War, the Jews were almost natural victims. There was a history of anti-Semitism in much of Europe and the Jews stood out by their clannishness and supposedly common physical traits. They were easy to single out. But the Jews really were targeted because so many of them were superior in achievement to the average suffering German, certainly richer, and they had great power over people’s lives. They were a magnet for resentment. The image of the Jew wasn’t the humble school teacher, but the rich industrialist or banker. And, very importantly, they were a law-abiding minority loath to resist authority. Numbers and attitude count.

white guiltI’m thinking about this whole color thing because the Zimmerman trial is a microcosm of everything that is wrong with so-called race relations in 21st century America. Here is a guy who appears to have been parachuted in from the Andes and the color-conscious media rushes to call him white. This already weights the case against the defendant, as we all know. In fact, his daddy is white, but his momma isn’t. She’s a woman of color, no doubt having a lot of Inca blood. Common sense tells me that Zimmerman’s greatest misfortune in this trial is his German last name, a point the left has tried to play on by calling him a white Hispanic. Who gave them the right to decide which half of Zimmerman is dominant? Zimmerman thinks of himself as Hispanic — doesn’t that count for anything? If we decided to call Obama a white African, would that be okay too? It would be equally applicable and equally inappropriate.

zimmermanThe defense in the Zimmerman trial started out buffoonishly, but they soon recovered their senses. Here is the picture I have mentally put together of what we have heard from both sides. Trayvon Martin was innocently walking to the home of his father’s girlfriend where he was a visitor, talking on the phone to someone. He had his hood up because it had been raining on and off. Martin was a somewhat toked-up young black male of indeterminate age, tall, physically buff and angry at the world as teens are wont to be. Along came a chubby Peruvian with a concealed-carry permit and a gun in his pocket. He was patrolling because there had been a series of burglaries in the neighborhood and the residents were nervous. So was Zimmerman, armed and on edge. Zimmerman saw the hooded figure and didn’t recognize him from the neighborhood. His suspicion aroused, Zimmerman did the right thing and called the police. Zimmerman suspected another break-in was planned. Told not to follow the guy, Zimmerman nevertheless did. He wanted to know: was the guy going to do something or just loiter and where was he headed? He wanted to tell the police where to go when they show up. He’s a cop-lover.

trayMeanwhile, the way I see it, the lovely Rachel Jeantel of the limited vocabulary must have been providing dull-witted encouragement to Martin’s announcement that he was going to teach the fat boy a lesson. Why did he keep Jeantel on the line as he accosted Martin unless he wanted her to know how tough he was? Martin stepped up his pace to get out of  Zimmerman’s sight and then hid behind a shrub to ambush Zimmerman and turn the tables. When Zimmerman went skulking past, Martin jumped him, just wanting to give him a good lickin’. But Zimmerman now was sure that this assailant was no resident, but a really bad guy who had him pinned on the ground and was whaling away at him. His nose was probably broken and it may be that blow that caused his head to bounce on the cement. The abuse was not only terribly painful — there are nothing but nerve endings up there on the scalp — but raised an immediate fear of brain damage. Zimmerman — the guy being pummeled — was obviously the one calling for help, but nobody responded, as is often the case here in the home of the free. He panicked, managed to get his gun out of his pocket and shot. His sole intent: to prevent further injury to himself and get Martin off of him. Martin died.

Of course much of the above scenario is what I see in my head from the evidence presented. If Jeantel told Martin to whup that white boy’s ass, she isn’t saying. As the Emperor Claudius knew, it is sometimes useful to play the idiot. But this is the narrative that makes sense to me. No matter what Martin’s mother believes (and I think she has convinced herself it’s so), it makes zero sense for her son to have been calling for help. He was doing quite all right by himself. It had to have been the guy on the bottom shouting for help. The prosecution says there was none of Zimmerman’s DNA under the nails. Why would there be? Martin wasn’t scratching Zimmerman, he was punching him with his fist. Was there any DNA on his fists?

So here is the bottom line: unless you think George Zimmerman went out determined to find and kill an innocent person, then we can accept he did not act with malice aforethought. Who was more at fault for this sad event? Trayvon Martin for ambushing and physically accosting Zimmerman because the latter was following him, or George Zimmerman for not hanging back and letting Martin go wherever he was going? By the time the police arrived, Zimmerman must have figured, the guy would have disappeared. He was a cop wannabe, but is that a crime or make him criminally-inclined? Is daring to be a Neighborhood Watchman, or daring to be legally armed, or wanting to see where a stranger is headed in a crime-plagued neighborhood, criminal behavior?

Here is my standard: if Zimmerman had not tried to see where Martin was headed, there would not have been a confrontation. At the same time, if Martin had ignored Zimmerman, who was not physically accosting him or approaching him more closely, he would have arrived home safely. I personally don’t think there would ever have been an incident if Martin hadn’t been a testosterone-laden 16-year old having some animosity toward whites and looking to vent some angry energy.

thumbHere’s the ugliest part of the story. It seems that the judge and the entire State side are so frightened at the thought of retaliatory violence from the black community should Zimmerman be acquitted that they are bending every rule to convict him of something. The judge’s bias in that direction has been evident since the beginning of the trial and it has only gotten worse along the line. She was in way over her pay grade and behaved like a petulant woman. But she was doing duty on behalf of the State, which wants a conviction on something, anything. Hence the eleventh hour agreement to allow the prosecution to completely change its case by significantly widening the possible convictions allowed the jury. Somebody is pushing downward to make sure the right verdict is arrived at. Somebody has their thumb on the scale.

Although I hope nobody resorts to violence in this matter, I wonder what the State would do were the white population to riot in the wake of a conviction for Zimmerman. Wouldn’t that be an eye-opener.


Holder is Indignant

holder angryOnce more called by the House to account for his Department’s various felonious actions, Eric Holder pulled out the old I’m outraged routine from his Radical Black American’s bag of tricks. But it isn’t working so well these days. Mr. Holder continues to take on water, sinking under the weight of his Department’s scandals (don’t forget F&F!). He was unable to mount more than a fig-leaf of excuse for violating the privacy of communications between reporters and their sources, i.e., the need to find the leaker of information so damaging to US security that he had never seen its like in his 40-year career. (And by the way, how many leaks devastating to US national security  would he normally have seen in a career such as his?) He stressed and stressed and stressed again how devastating those leaks were (I guess we’re lucky he didn’t have someone assassinated or hustled off in chains on a parole violation, it was that devastating). After failing to convince his skeptical questioners, who continued to ask unpleasant questions, he went for the Hail Mary. He shamed or tried to shame Mr. Issa by complaining that the way you conduct yourself as a member of Congress is unacceptable and  shameful.

fandfI’m willing to believe that Holder, like his buddy Obama, bristles at all sorts of things, including unpleasant questions. They grew up in a society where every consequence of bad action could be averted by acting offended. We are to ignore the charge and focus on how badly the perp is being treated by the white boys. (Incidentally, Issa is Arab-American and I bet that might trump Black these days.) How dare you has been so overused and abused under Obama that such protestations of offense have lost all moral value and are seen as the last defense of a scoundrel, often a racist scoundrel.

black panthersAnd is Holder ever a racist scoundrel. His Department of Justice has carried out a purely political agenda, one that favors certain groups of Americans over others, that gives some people a pass, that views a whole category of law-abiding citizens as enemies who should be surveilled and held on a short leash, an agenda in which civil rights only belong to blacks and sexual deviants and atheists and Democrats and vets are threats to the country. He has politicized his fiefdom and distorted the American justice system. I guess for a once and former radical yearning to be freaky, distorting one of the pillars of American society is a good thing.

It would have been nice if one of the Congresspersons had told Mr. Holder to can the subliminal racist crap, but I guess that only happens in our alternative universe where liars are called liars. If they continue pressing him, however, I don’t care what they call our esteemed Attorney General. Let’s expose just how corrupted the Department of Justice has become under Holder. And we can throw in Janet Napolitano while we’re at it.
