Lefties, once again doing the hate speech

As V the K recently noted, “If real hate crimes were happening, the left wouldn’t have to fake them.”

The latest entry in the database is St. Olaf’s College. Some students got racist notes on their windshields. It hurt their feelers. Which was a campus-wide crisis. Because, you know, windshield notes and people’s feelings are SO much more important than exams or people’s medical problems or the homeless or people who have to dodge bombs in war-torn Syria.

Except for one thing: It was fake news. One of the victims confessed to being the perpetrator, in a supposed “strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”

I say “supposed”, because this kind of thing keeps happening and I think these left-wing perpetrators do have racial hatreds (or anti-gay, anti-Jewish or whatever) in their hearts. By becoming Social Justice Warriors who “raise awareness” doing these crimes, they get to act out their true feelings.

In other words: they’re real hate crimes. We’re just not supposed to notice. As normals, our assigned role is to accept the misplaced blame, let ourselves be scapegoated, feel guilty and submit to the SJWs.

Hey, SJWs: YOU ARE LITERALLY THE ONES DOING THE HATE SPEECH, IN AMERICA TODAY. If you have to do it yourselves, then no, it’s not a real problem.

How America’s largest cities voted

Commentor TnnsNe1 did some research. Thanks! I didn’t realize, until the moment I saw it, that I had been wanting to know.

From ESPN: “If you are a city in America, you are a racist city,” (Michael) Smith stated.

So, I did a bit of research (all figures by county) on the election results. Here are the results for the 15 most populated urban areas:

NYC Clinton 82%
LA Clinton 72%
Chicago Clinton 84%
Houston Clinton 48%
Philadelphia Clinton 82%
Phoenix -Trump- 48%
San Antonio Clinton 54%
San Diego Clinton 57%
Dallas Clinton 61%
San Jose Clinton 73%
Austin Clinton 66%
Jacksonville -Trump- 48%
San Francisco Clinton 85%
Indianapolis Clinton 58%
Columbus Clinton 60%

Emphasis added (because I just didn’t see, when I first read it). We can re-order it by Clinton’s percentage:

San Francisco 85%
Chicago 84%
NYC 82%
Philadelphia 82%
San Jose 73%
LA 72%
Austin 66%
Dallas 61%
Columbus 60%
Indianapolis 58%
San Diego 57%
San Antonio 54%
Houston 48%
Phoenix under 48%
Jacksonville under 48%

Given the premise that a vote for Hillary was a vote for the worst human being in that 4-way race, my guess would be that people are

  • reasonable in Phoenix, Jacksonville, Houston, San Antonio.
  • And less so in San Francisco, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, San Jose, Los Angeles.

I’m not shocked that California has many of America’s less-reasonable people.

Finally, I must point out that this is exactly why the Framers created the Electoral College: so that America’s large cities – what with their numbers, kraziness and groupthink – would not have an overpowering influence in choosing the President (nor in the Senate).

Against ethnic identitarianism

First, let’s catch up on some lingo. Nathan Damigo, the guy who punched Moldylocks, founded something called “Identity Evropa” (meaning European). I visited the website and I did not find any statements that call for white supremacy; only for white/European identity.

Think of it this way. We have accepted identities such as African-American, Latino-American, Asian-American, Jewish-American, etc. In general, those identities don’t intend full-on Black or Latino or Asian or Jewish supremacy. They may sometimes achieve special privileges (for example, quotas or differing standards for the alleged races). But the majority of people holding to those identities don’t intend anything like a hard apartheid (or internment camps, etc.) for the other identities. In that sense, they usually aren’t “Black supremacists” or “Latino supremacists” or “Asian supremacists”, etc.

Damigo and company seem to be saying, we can get along with those identities but let’s have one for whites, too. They reject the term “white supremacists”. In the Rebel Media interview linked above, Damigo describes himself as a “white identitarian” and says that hysterical claims about his being a Nazi, a racist, etc. are just “anti-white hate speech” to shut down conversation.

It may sound almost reasonable until you remember that all identity politics are harmful. These guys are going in the exact wrong direction. They are doing a “Me, too” on racial identity politics. Like the others, they offer a cheap identity – “join the fraternity”, says their website. A San Diego Union-Tribune article says:

[As a Marine in Iraq, Damigo] saw firsthand the conflicts between the country’s ethnic and religious groups. “I said, ‘This is dumb. Why don’t … each one of them have their own country and they can all express themselves and … they’re not, you know, fighting with each other,” he told the Los Angeles Times in December.

In other words: Damigo might not want to harm or subjugate the other identities; but he thinks that both the Middle East and America should be even more ethnically-divided than they already are. Not good.

I believe in a melting-pot, American identity based on America’s founding principles of Human Freedom under Limited Government and the Rule of Law. Yes, the Left has pulled us all away from it with cheap, divisive identity politics. So let’s restore it.

When I come across identity-politics material of any kind (white, black or otherwise), the word “stupid” keeps popping into my head. I’ve been thinking about why that is. First, here is how I define the term. Interactions between 2 parties will have one of four outcomes.

  • I win, you win: That’s smart.
  • I win, you lose: That might be justice; if it’s not, then it’s predatory on my part, masochistic on your part.
  • I lose, you win: That might be justice; if it’s not, then it’s masochistic on my part, predatory on your part.
  • I lose, you lose: That’s just stupid.

With identity politics, everyone loses. Even the hucksters who gain financially from it are still losers – because they’re hucksters. If it’s stupid when Blacks or Asians or Latinos do it – and I’m afraid that it is – then it is equally stupid when whites do it.

All identitarians oversimplify their group’s history, and Identity Evropa is no exception. Their materials highlight Western civilization with majestic Greco-Roman-appearing figures next to slogans like “Let’s become great again”, “Serve your people”, “Discover who you are”, “Protect your heritage”. Fine. I like greatness and heroic art. But these guys seem unaware that Jesus was a Mediterranean Jew, and that the Greco-Roman civilizations (I dare not say “races”) were highly mixed, with a good deal of Mediterranean, Semitic (Phoenician), African and European heritage together.

They seem to forget that *culture is culture*. It isn’t about ethnicity, or tribe, or race, or genes, or color. It’s ideas; principles; the arts; laws and legal practices; philosophy; sciences; means of production and trade; food; ethics; things that can be adopted by anyone, of any ethnicity, at any time.

I am a Western supremacist. That is: I think that the Judeo-Christian-Greco-Roman-Lockean/Enlightenment civilization, while not perfect, is better than the others; it has the most elements from which an ideal civilization could be built. And I want to spread those good elements, by example and persuasion, to all ethnic groups (in America and the world).

It’s about the ideas/principles, and the individuals everywhere who may hold them. I couldn’t care less about the survival of *any* ethnicity as such. Ethnic identity is a sideshow, a rabbit hole where everyone loses, if we keep going down it.

And sorry Mr. Damigo, but if it does turn out that you’re one of those people who dwells on racial categories and uses them to pre-judge your fellow human beings: then yes, at that point you would be a racist. If you don’t want to wear that shoe, kindly make sure it never fits.

Two for one!

Ann Coulter and Jesse Lee Peterson, together at last. Enjoy!

Once more, the media lied to me

The last few weeks, I’ve explored the so-called “alt-Right” a little. Not joining it per se, just looking at material produced by people who are supposed to be it.

I keep having the same, strange experience. I’m told that these people are supposed to be neo-Nazi white nationalist fringies. But they aren’t! Milo, Mike Cernovich, the handsome Jack Posobiec, Rebel Media, Breitbart.com, Diamond and Silk, Jesse Lee Peterson – None of them are like that.

For sure, my search isn’t objective. When I come across some web site or material that starts to get racial – like, say, therightstuff dot biz – I go “Ugh!” and don’t look much further. Because assigning importance to race is dumb, whether it’s from the Left or the Right, I usually don’t want to waste my time on people/sites that do it. (Fuller comment in this thread.)

So I’m sure there must be some swathe of the alt-Right, somewhere, that gets racist. But again: left-wing protestors and media promised me that the names mentioned above would be that way… and they just aren’t.

As to the alt-Right: the names mentioned above talk about it in much the same way, like “I don’t know if I’m part of it. If it’s white nationalists, I’m out. If it’s challenging the Left / Deep State / Big Government / globalists in ways that are persuasive and fun, I’m in.” That’s roughly how I feel.

Left-Wing Propagandist Goes Nanners

A nutjob left-wing filmmaker aspiring to be the next Morgan Spurlock has made a “documentary” whose thesis is that Michael Brown didn’t rob the convenience store he was caught on camera… um… robbing, but that what happened in the convenience store was an unsuccessful drug deal… and so the fake “Hand’s Up Don’t Shoot” Narrative is somehow… um… not … fake… or something.

Community Activists have already started stoking riots black neighborhoods because of this film. Because that’ll show whitey.

This nutjob left-wing film-maker goes off like Ashley Judd on an interviewer that confronts him with facts. But what is really striking to me is the way he accuses the Obama/Holder Justice Department of being part of a racist conspiracy to incarcerate black men and protect white cops.

Unhinged ranting about conspiracy theories… this guy could be a Democrat congresswoman.

Racist Horrified After DNA Test Reveals 68% Black Ancestry

Or as they would say on Buzzfeed: “Huffington Post writer takes DNA Test. You won’t believe what happens next.”

You know what, you’ve already guessed the twist, so I’m not even going to pretend.

“I found out I was White. Not just 13% White, my husband’s percentage when he too completed the ancestry composition report. Not just 25% White, since the average amount of DNA in an African American’s genome traced back to West Africa is about 75%. I was damn near 1/3 White. That’s significant.

“Of all the emotions which materialized from the results, the two strongest were disorient and shame. I thought the results would simply confirm what I was told by my family; instead they discredited their allegations,” she wrote.

Something Else That Is Also Racist

Correct Grammar, probably because of the grammar Nazis.

The chief writing instructor at the University of Washington, Tacoma, is trying to dismantle the rules of grammar because he believes they are racist—and the college has given its endorsement to his campaign.

Posters that appeared this week in the college’s writing center are part of a new effort to teach students that the conventional rules on how to structure sentences and form ideas in written language are perpetuating inequality and “white supremacy.”

Grammar, according to the posters in the writing center, can “justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of the way people communicate in particular versions of English.”

Professor Inoue also holds seminars on how to identify and correct “white supremacy” in grading writing assignments; self-help workshops for actual (yet self-identified) grammar Nazis.

And this is why I refer to them as “Asylums of Higher Education.”

Racist Bigotry Is So Hawt in the Democrat Left Right Now

The Democrats are eager to harness the #BlackLivesMatter movement to till the fields of social justice and pick the bright fluffy cotton of electoral participation. The Masters Leaders of the Democrat Party are even inviting some of them to serve inside the house, as it were, with positions of leadership and influence within the party. #BlackLivesMatter leaders got to advise President Obama. They were paraded on stage at the 2016 DNC Convention.  No one aspiring to be chairhumanoid of the Democrat Party can say anything but “wonderful” about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Here’s what one of the leaders of the #BlackLivesMatter movement had to say about white people.

“Whiteness is not humxness, in fact, white skin is sub-humxn,” she wrote. “All phenotypes exist within the black family and white ppl are a genetic defect of blackness.”

Khogali then proclaimed: “White ppl are recessive genetic defects. This is factual.”

Raising the question, do they know about Shaun King?

The delightful people of #BlackLivesMatter have been joined in fomenting urban unrest by the ‘Antifa’ movement, which supports the exact same economic policies as Bernie Sanders and on whose behalf Senate Democrats are voting in lockstep against every Trump nominee. They also have some delightful people in leadership positions.  And they have also been plastering Seattle with the poster below.

There may be a few people on the Democrat left who do not like that their party is being taken over by the violent, racist, and stupid. But, so far, they’ve confined their expressions of concern to comments on right-wing blogs.

Democrats Remind Uppity Black People of Their Place

Donald J. Trump’s efforts to reach out to African-Americans are not being well-received on the left.

When noted comedian and host of the hit show “Family Feud” Steve Harvey exited from a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump last week calling him “a great man,” to say there was a backlash would be a gross understatement. The word “coon” and “sellout” was immediately thrown out.

Remember, people on the Democrat Left also used the word ‘coon’ to describe America’s foremost neurosurgeon.

Update: “Mediocre Negroes

“It was a bunch of mediocre Negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump’s exploitative campaign against black people. And you are an example of that,” (Professor and CNN Commentator Marc Lamont) Hill shot back.

Well, Gang, We’ve Got a Mystery On Our Hands

According to the left, a six-year-old has sufficient wisdom, maturity, and insight to decide for xerself that xe is not the “gender” that corresponds to xer biological and genetic make-up and all adults are therefore obligated to accommodate the six-year-old’s chosen gender.

But when three eighteen-year-olds and a twenty-four year old kidnap a mentally challenged man and torture him for their own amusement, livestreaming the video, those same leftists are like, “Hey, you know, they’re just kids, and kids just act stupidly sometimes because they’re immature and don’t understand the consequences.”

Likewise, you have people on the left saying that when four black people torture a white guy while yelling “F— White People, F— Donald Trump,” it isn’t really a “hate crime.” (I really don’t believe in the whole hate crimes thing,  but the left does, so let’s work with that.) You know, because the details are kind of fuzzy. “We can’t really be sure what motivated them,” the lefties say. “Besides, they had a relationship before the attack, it wasn’t a random thing.”

But when a gay dude gets pistol whipped by his drug dealer and tied to a fencepost… oh, yeah, that’s totally a hate crime. No doubt. Nothing but anti-gay hate could possibly explain that.

And you know something, I can kind of see that what those four demonic sub-humans did in Chicago may not have been a “hate crime” in the sense of “an act of violence committed out of hatred for another person’s race, creed, or sexual orientation.”  There was hate in it, and there was hate expressed during it, but there were other things going on… including immature, stupid people just being violent for violence sake.

And this is why I’m just not down with the entire concept of hate crimes.  That poor dude they tortured… his injuries are the same whether they did it because they hated him for being white, or because they are stupid violent people behaving like stupid violent people. (I won’t call them animals, they don’t deserve the dignity.) And they should be severely punished for their actions not their motivations.

Because, let’s face it, labeling some crimes as worse because “they are hate crimes” is pretty much just virtue signaling.

Still wonder which media outlet is going to be first out of the block explaining that the four people who tortured that white guy were “basically good kids, and they were just starting to turn their lives around. Their families are still in shock. ‘It’s just not like her,'” some relative will say.

Sorry for the meandering. I know that bothers some people.

Slate: Is America Ready for Black Musicians?

Oh, Good Lord.

Black women ruled music in 2016, whether the country was ready for it or not: http://slate.me/2hF7E36  pic.twitter.com/oKoK9mw5I4

To the left, America (once you get 50 kilometers away from any major coastal population center) is always and will be forever Mississippi in 1954.

The Baby Boomer obsession with race goes back to the sixties. Everything boomers did in the sixties was subsequently discredited. Spitting on Vietnam war veterans… not cool. Sexual revolution… that’s how we got AIDS and broken families. Maoism?… not even the Chinese are into it. The Soviet Union collapsed and it turned out the counter-culture had been rooting for the losing team the whole time. Hippie culture? Reduced to mockery. But, from the Boomer left’s perspective, “Hey, but we were right on civil rights (not really, but that’s another post) and we are going to rub civil rights and race in the faces of the next two generations so maybe they’ll forget about how we destroyed the cities, spit on soldiers, embraced communism, and unleashed AIDS.”

The Millennial obsession is a combination of emulating their “parents,” the end result of a lifetime of indoctrination of race-obsessed boomers in media and academia, and because boomers control the media, and the way for Millennials to advance is to suck up and play to their prejudices.

FoxNews Sued by Black Employees for Racial Discrimination

J/K … it’s actually left-slanting fake news network CNN.

“Upon information and belief,” the suit says, “African-American employees have had to endure racial slurs and prejudicial biases from superiors such as, ‘it’s hard to manage black people’ and ‘who would be worth more: black slaves from times past or new slaves.’ ”

Earlier on CNN: “Donald Trump is a flat-out Racist.”

“Well, let me do it again, and let me do it in two languages: Es un racista. He is a flat-out racist and it’s what he’s played on for 16 months. He is a bigot. He is a racist.”

The Steve Bannon kerfuffle

I don’t know a great deal about it. This is a post where I’m not presenting information, so much as asking for it.

But, to set up the question: Via Instapundit we have this from The Hill: Breitbart News planning lawsuit against ‘major media company’.

Breitbart News is preparing a lawsuit against a “major media company” over claims that it is a white nationalist website…

The website has been under intense scrutiny since President-elect Donald Trump named Stephen Bannon as a senior White House counselor and strategist. Bannon is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News…

“…Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will,” [said a statement.] “The diversity of the company’s news coverage and its staff continue to embody Andrew Breitbart’s colorblind, distinctly American commitment to ‘E pluribus unum’—out of many, one.”

Critics have taken aim at the site’s coverage in recent days. While Bannon was executive chairman of Breitbart, the website published a story by David Horowitz referring to conservative commentator Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew,” something that has been mentioned repeatedly in media coverage calling Breitbart a white nationalist website.

So, here’s what I “think I know”, at present.

  • Breitbart.com was one of the first to go all-in for Trump. They are pro-deportation of illegals, but in no way white-supremacist.
  • Just as the media’s knickers are in a twist over Trump and over the Alt-Right, they’re in a twist over Trump keeping Bannon as a senior, Karl Rove-type advisor.
  • But it’s ridiculous. If all that the media has is one Jew (David Horowitz) slagging another Jew (Bill Kristol) over something to do with Jewishness, on Breitbart.com while Bannon presided, let’s face it: They’ve got nothing.

Correct? Agree/disagree? What I would be most interested in here, is actual evidence – not mere assertion or opinion – that Steve Bannon and/or Breitbart are “white nationalists” or white supremacists. If any exists. (I have a gut-feeling against it.)

UPDATE – I didn’t see this coming: Trump Wants To Deport [Only] As Many Undocumented Immigrants As Obama Already Has.

UPDATE: Spengler (David P. Goldman) describes Bannon as “100% pro-Israel” – which would be unusual for a white supremacist. And the worst against Bannon that Jonah Goldberg can muster, is that Bannon is part of the alt-Right. Yawn, so is Milo. Sorry, Jonah. I do love you, most of the time.

I am open to a point suggested in the comments, that under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart.com has declined journalistically. But that’s a different matter. Being a poor journalist (arguably) doesn’t make you a racist.

Calls for Peace and Understanding After the Election Are “Racist” Now

Don’t go “Whitesplaining” to this enlightened, tolerant liberal why we need to  put the election behind us and work together.

I keep hearing calls for unity in my country right now, though these aren’t spoken as the desperate prayers of hearts desiring peace between two hurting sides, they’re spoken as chastisements of one side by another. They are words of scolding and shaming delivered as a teacher to a petulant student. They are not spoken with benevolence but malice.

They are white voices speaking to the ears of the marginalized in the middle of their mourning.

This is the seed of our national acrimony: selective white outrage that seeks to control what is grief and what is acceptable and what the rules of the conversation are going to be. This is what privilege looks like. And this is the singular barrier to unity.

He also is only a little bit troubled by the violence of the Anti-Trump riots. After all, it’s only (other people’s) property and that is nothing compared to the millions of feelings that have been hurt.

A study in contrasts

Two black women support LEGAL immigration (as do I), border security and Donald Trump. About a year ago they felt angry – and expressed themselves peacefully. (h/t CrayCrayPatriot for telling me about them)

YouTube Preview Image

That’s good.

Now for the contrast: Shamefully, two black men this week beat up a (perceived? real or imagined?) Trump voter. (h/t Zero Hedge and InfoWars)

That’s a disgrace.

The difference here isn’t race. Isn’t era. Isn’t oppression-privilege “experience” or dynamics. Isn’t anger level. Probably isn’t even gender, all that much (since some women do fight, and many men don’t).

The key difference is IDEAS – and MORAL CHARACTER.

As Aristotle is supposed to have said:

Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.

Exit question: Are Hillary or President Obama out there, telling people in no uncertain terms to calm down and accept the election’s outcome? (If yes: I’m glad, and feel free to post the link in the comments.)

UPDATE: Via ZH, a high school girl is attacked (by another high school girl) for supporting Trump. Pathetic!

Rich Hippie Commies Endorse Violent Hate Group

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream has openly and fully endorsed Black Lives Matter in its entirety and with not an ounce skepticism of the Narrative.

The Tweet, which has been liked over 30,000 times, was accompanied by a lengthy statement on systemic and institutionalized racism and called for others to join their cause by not standing idly by and to engage in meaningful action.

“Systemic and institutionalized racism are the defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time,” says the statement signed by Your Friends at Ben & Jerry’s. “We’ve come to understand that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats.”

This is of a piece with Ben & Jerry’s longstanding support for the cop-murdering thug (and progressive icon) Mumia Abu Jamal.

I stopped eating their crappy ice cream over a decade ago. There are plenty of alternative sources for ice cream that don’t support violent racists.

Hillary: Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist

“When talking about race-relations in the country, and the shootings of black men by police officers, debate moderator Lester Holt asked Mrs. Clinton: “Last week you said that we have to do everything possible to improve policing to go right at implicit bias. Do you believe police are implicitly biased against black people?

Mrs. Clinton replied: “I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country jump to conclusions about each other and therefore I think we need all of us to be asked the hard questions ‘why am I feeling this way?’”

America Today

Charlotte, NC has become America’s latest Riot Zone. Here is why:

14433078_10211068392528429_1422595711297071104_n

Now, according to #BlackLivesMatter, the guy in Charlotte was just “sitting in his car reading a book” when racist cops shoot him for no reason, and he most definitely didn’t have a gun. How can that be plausible when President Obama has told us repeatedly that guns are freely available in minority communities but books are impossible to find?

With regards to the Glenn Reynolds controversy, I honestly don’t see what’s wrong with using your car as a defensive weapon if people are attacking you.

Update: Rush Limbaugh noted something extraordinary about the current spate of rioting; it’s occurring in North Carolina, where the officer involved in the shooting was also black, and not in Oklahoma, where the officer was white and the decision to shoot was far more questionable. Also, almost three quarters of arrested rioters are from outside the state. The obvious conclusion is that NC is being agitated because the polls are so close there, while OK is solidly red and not worth the resources.

Clinton: Blacks Are No Good at Self-Government; Time to Replace Them with a Lighter Skinned Population

Paraphrasing.

Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there. But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.

So, what he is saying is that a black majority American city is incapable of rebuilding itself, and the only solution is to import a new population. Sounds kind of… what’s the word… racist?
