The Day After Chauvin

Yesterday I found the news so depressing that I wasn’t in the mood to write.  It’s hard to paint what happened in the Chauvin trial in anything but the blackest terms.  It was not unexpected but the reality of it brought home just how far we’ve fallen from the days of even our fathers.

But some good comes of even the most painful events.  The primary good will be that black crime will go essentially unchecked in all the Democrat controlled jurisdictions.  No policeman is going to arrest a black man for any reason whatsoever.  Why would he?  If the criminal steals a pair of sneakers or a diamond ring subduing him is a dangerous threat to his own life.  And if he injures the criminal he’ll be prosecuted.  If the black criminal kills someone, the correct procedure is put up the crime scene tape around the body and call the CSI team to take fingerprints and DNA evidence that can be recorded and stored away to prove that a good job was done.  And as for drug crimes, please don’t make me laugh.  Drugs are the solution.  Once the whole population is completely dosed there will be a lot less complaining about crime.  So, the Democrats will have effectively eliminated law enforcement

And that will be a very educational development.  Granted, it will cause incredible misery.  And that will be true in both the black neighborhoods and the other areas.  The knock-on effects will be white (and yellow and brown) flight from the cities and even the inner suburbs by everyone who can.  It will also polarize all the other ethnicities against the black population.  Basically, people will be reacting to the reality of a population that no longer is subject to law enforcement.  Even the Hispanic areas will be aware that there will no longer be a break on the kind of inner-city violence that was held in check by the police.

Dementia Joe plans to try to expand this to the red states by using the Justice Department as a weapon to attack any city that tries to use law enforcement to control crime perpetrated by black criminals.  It will be interesting to see if the red state governors are smart and strong enough to prevent this maneuver.  I know that Ron DeSantis in Florida has put together an anti-rioting law that will allow his state to fight back if a local mayor tries to create a BLM riot situation.

But I expect that places like Atlanta and St. Louis will explode this summer and the feds will do their best to punish the police departments in those cities.  I expect that we’ll see the white cops in all these cities retiring at a pretty good clip.  As I said before I’d be really gratified if one of these BLM parties gets out of control and burns down one of the cities before they realize what they are doing.  Minneapolis or Portland would be my obvious favorites but New York or Chicago would also be great.  We’ll see.

So, I’ve gotten over my discouragement.  I’ve begun looking at what I’ll have to do to move in the future and I spend all my time concentrating on the things and the people that are important to me and only use whatever time is necessary to make sure I avoid all the evil and stupid people that are currently in charge of the former United States of America.  But one thing is sure.  They can stop playing the National Anthem in the Blue States.  In places like Minneapolis, “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave,” is just a hollow joke.

Has the Madness Finally Outweighed Everything Else?

Do you remember when we were told that the only reason why homosexuals wanted civil unions was because otherwise, they would be denied visitation rights in the hospital?  Compare that to the current LGBTQ agenda:

  • Homosexual men must have the right to adopt male children.
  • Homosexuals must be allowed in the military.
  • Men who decide that they are actually women must be permitted to compete against women in women’s sports.
  • Men who decide that they are actually women must be allowed in the girls’ bathroom.
  • Men who decide that they are actually women must be called by whatever “pronouns” they designate for themselves under penalty of criminal law.
  • Normal men must date men who decide that they are actually women and normal women must date women who decide they are actually men.
  • There are more than two sexes.
  • Biological sex is just a social construct.
  • Wedding bakers and photographers and other merchants must provide their services to homosexuals regardless of whether they have religious objections to these relationships.
  • The schools in this country must indoctrinate our children with the idea that these things are normal, sensible and good.
  • Children who have been confused into thinking they are “transgender” must be allowed to decide for themselves that they will be treated with hormone therapy and amputations of their reproductive organs to somehow accommodate these delusions about their sexual identities.

And how about the feminist agenda?  Remember when it was all about not discriminating against young women who just wanted to make their way in a “man’s world?”  What does it look like now?

  • The physical training requirements of the United States military forces have been severely downgraded to allow women to serve in combat roles. And even by these watered-down standards most of the female recruits are unqualified.
  • Quotas are now mandatory in almost all sectors and organizations both private and government to require women well in excess of the number of qualified women for these jobs.
  • The number of women in STEM fields has to be increased regardless of competency or even interest in the subject. If necessary “management” roles must be provided to allow women to share in the prestige of a skill set they do not possess.

And finally let’s look at that most endless source of grief.  When the civil rights war “struggle” began Martin Luther King said he had a dream that one day his children would be judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin.  Well, where are we now?

  • All things are judged by the color of skin. If your skin color is black then all things are done in your favor.  If your skin color is white then you’re just plumb out of luck.
  • If a black man commits a crime and the police catch him, they cannot use force to arrest him. He can punch, kick, stab or shoot them.  If they even subdue him by grappling him to the ground then they will be blamed if he dies of a heart condition that he exacerbated by fighting with the police.  In fact, they will be charged with his murder.
  • If the government decides that black rioting and looting are needed to win an election or punish the white inhabitants of an area then no crimes that black people commit during this sanctioned rioting time will be pursued.
  • If black people begin to victimize other ethnicities such as Asians, then these attacks will be declared the result of white supremacy and will necessitate further rioting and looting.
  • People whose ancestors were slaves 150 years ago will be paid trillions of dollars by people whose ancestors weren’t even living in this country at the time.
  • Having black people vote requires that not only in their communities but also all across the country voting cannot require any kind of standard identification documentation like a driver’s license or even a welfare benefits card. And in their communities no standards of accuracy can be maintained.  If the vote count shows that 200% or even 500% of the number of registered voters voted then that is what happened.

 

So, these are the things that we are being told must be.  What does all this mean for us?  Well, think about what your response is when someone tells you that 1 + 1 = 3.  First off, you know that you are dealing with either a liar or a madman.  More likely you are dealing with a partnership of liars and madmen.  But let’s go on.

In each of these cases government is interfering with the freedoms of Americans.  In most cases it is the rights of free association.  You are being told who you can and cannot hire or live with or associate with.  In some cases, it is even worse.  Selective enforcement of criminal law is being used as a form of domestic terrorism.  And in the worst of the abuses a mental illness in children is being used as an excuse to allow them to mutilate themselves to satisfy other mentally ill individuals who need validation for their madness.

When I look at the LGBTQ and feminist dictates, I think of what steps I’d take to deal with these things.  The first thing I’d do is protect my children from indoctrination in these lies and madness.  Home schooling and religious schools would be the solution.  As far as the discrimination against men, it would make you think about living in a country where these laws aren’t acceptable.  Granted that is an extreme option but I think it should be considered.  Another option is self-employment.  So far, they haven’t mandated small businesses having to hire women.  But give them time.

And finally think about the problems this makes between black people and everyone else.  If blacks are now such a privileged class that they are allowed to commit property and violent crimes with impunity what would make you want to live anywhere near them at all?  Even defending yourself from being assaulted or robbed by black criminals could mean prison for you.  It’s obvious that any rational person, white, brown, yellow or red would make it his first concern to keep himself and his family as far away as possible from a black neighborhood, especially a poor black neighborhood.

And so, when you look at the entirety of current US policy as it concerns the liberal agenda on race and sex, I think you have to say that it creates a dysfunctional society that damages the lives of normal people and especially families to a very great extent.  Even if you take into account the economic advantages of living in the richest country on the planet it seems to me that the social and even psychological damage all this does outweighs the advantages.  If no hope exists to undo these crazy policies, then it seems to me that the best thing for normal people to do is get out.

Minneapolis Seems To Be Having a Slight Crime Problem

After allowing a mob to burn down police headquarters, voting to defund their police department and vilifying police officers as racists the government of Minneapolis was shocked to find out that police are leaving the force in droves.  Even more unexpectedly the crime rate and especially the murder rate have spiked.  The City Council’s reaction was twofold.  First they attributed the spike to President Trump being evil and secondly they ordered police details to provide personal protection for City Council members.  With the problem now fully under control they went back to the main order of business, vilifying the police and President Trump.

But as personally satisfying as that action plan has been for the City Council and Mayor it appears that the residents of Minneapolis are still selfishly complaining about the carjackings, running gun battles between gangs, aggravated assaults and the odd murder here and there.  Why must these people harp on these petty problems?  Can’t they see that every day Minneapolis is getting closer and closer to real racial justice?  Oh, well.

Well anyway back in the real world a coalition of people who live in the effected area are begging the city and state government to send combat troops into the city to end the mayhem.

Reading the article you can sense the desperation in people who see their world disintegrating around them.  But reading the comments after the article it’s split about 50/50 between those who agree and those who think everything is just fine.  Minneapolis is now where New York City was back in the 1960s during the riots.  They can retreat from the madness of blaming the police for street crime or they can watch as the middle class residents leave in droves and leave the city a shell of its former self.  If I were guessing I’d go with white flight and burned out shell.

It will be educational to see how this latest case of the death of an American city plays out.  Who knows, maybe they’ll surprise me and vote to survive instead.  Anything is possible.

A Choice for the Blue State Voters

This election is already decided in the minds of almost every voter in America.  Other than a bloodbath in Portland or some other city where the lunatics of Antifa and BLM are rampaging I don’t think there are any more minds to change in terms of the Presidential vote.  But what about going forward in places like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Oregon, Illinois and New York?  I’d like to say a few things to the poor prisoners living in these states.  Are you happy with the way you’re being treated by the people running your state?  Do you want to send them a message or are you too passive and gutless to hit back at the people who have treated you like cattle for the last nine months?

In these blue-states, governors were complicit with local authorities in allowing rioters to control cities for months on end.  This was simultaneous with these same governors holding the general population under house arrest because of the COVID scam.  What I want to say to you blue state voters is, don’t you want to send a message to these people who have stolen most of a year out of your lives and defaced the streets and businesses of the cities you live and work in?

I’m not expecting you to necessarily vote in Republicans.  It would be reasonable for some moderate Democrat to take advantage of the unpopularity generated by the incumbents to run a primary challenge against these knuckleheads.  But if no challenger appears on the Democrat side it seems to me if you people are self-respecting men you must have pride enough to strike back at the people that allowed these outrages to go on.  Even if you don’t mind having your city held hostage by roving gangs of vandals and looters maybe you’ve grown tired of being lectured and hectored about your supposed white privilege and your responsibility and guilt for things that happened over a hundred and fifty years ago by people that probably have no relation to you whatsoever.

And if you actually have no detectable pride maybe you have some shred of compassion for your own children and grandchildren who will inherit the world that you are allowing your new masters to build.  They will be third class citizens in their own country and they will keep paying the price that you are signing them up for.  Pretty soon the red-states will be separating themselves from these policies and you will be beyond the help of free people.  Neither side will be in a position to coerce the other into following laws they don’t want.  So pretty soon you’ll have to choose.  You can turn your state around and rejoin the world of free speech and equality of opportunity or you can be a prisoner shackled to the wheel of social justice from which there is no reprieve from the life sentence.  You’ll pay your tribute to the gods of diversity and anti-racism knowing full well that no matter how much you pay it will never be enough to remove the Mark of Cain on your forehead and your descendants’ unto the last generation.  If you leave those states too late, you’ll be lucky if they leave you the clothes on your back.  All your stuff will be theirs.  Look at what California is already dreaming up for people who leave, an exit tax.

So, make up your mind, it’s your choice, at least for a little while.

The Pitch

Whether the Republican Party, going forward, continues as the home for the people resisting the Woke Jacobins or some other organization represents them, I think it is necessary that they come up with a simple narrative for why people should vote for them.  Rather than the old “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” I think they’re going to have to rebrand.  In sales there is the concept of “the pitch.”  Basically, it is the salesman’s best guess at what he can say to the buyer to close the sale.  One thing any salesman knows is that the attention span of the customer is extremely short.  What is put forth must be the strongest bit of persuasion possible and it needs to be concise.

For this reason, I believe that it is useless to try and win over the Middle and even parts of the Left by waxing poetic about free speech, free enterprise, free trade or even free college.  Some of it will work with some of them and some will work with others but even if they believe you it won’t get their attention.  All of it has already been said by all the frauds on the Left and the Right a million times already.  It’s just background noise at this point.  This won’t get it done.  And it can’t even be President Trump’s 2016 pitch, “Make America Great Again.”  It’s a great pitch and it made him president.  But it’s limited to the Right.  What we need is something that will work on anyone who isn’t woke.  We need this because the Left has unleashed a monster on the country and it shouldn’t be ignored.  It is both a horrible weapon and also a great gift.  They have dropped the mask and they are allowing the regular people on the Right and the Middle and the Left to really see what they intend for all of us.  This is the equivalent of when the Communists took to the streets in Weimar Germany.  It was their endgame and they no longer held back about what they intended and what they were willing to do to get it.

By now there is more than enough documentary evidence available from Minneapolis, Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, St. Louis and New York.  Packaging it into commercials and posters is child’s play for the campaign teams that the political parties have at their disposal.  All it requires is the slogan needed to sell the voters and convince them that it is in their interest to buy the product, to vote for the program.

Succinctly put, I think it would be something like this, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being eaten alive by BLM and Antifa.”  Some might object to “eaten alive.”  Maybe that seems inaccurate.  Sure, I’m a bit on the poetic side.  Say rather, “We are the only ones who can save you and your children from being beaten, robbed and dispossessed by BLM and Antifa.”  Either way I think that is the gist of the pitch.  Forget about freedom, forget about economics.  Stick to the fear of being fed to the howling mob.  I’ve never been in advertising but I was a salesman and I know that the two most powerful emotions that can be invoked in a pitch are greed and fear.  In this pitch, greed doesn’t come into play.  But fear is front and center on this one.  There are videos of the mob smashing, looting and burning down people’s businesses.  We have scenes of them beating and even killing innocent people who didn’t flee from their onslaught.

Basically, if the Republicans truly are too stupid to take advantage of this opportunity then they must simply be replaced by those who aren’t.  The Mid-West is full of Democrat voters who can be convinced that it is in their best interests to stop the madness that is being inflicted upon their neighbors every night on their television screens.

For the people listening the message should be forget the tri-corner hats, stock up on ammunition.

Jason Whitlock over at OutKick Speaks the Hard Truth About Antifa and BLM

Jason Whitlock is a black sports writer.  He’s gone on his own after working for FoxNews and I think ESPN.  He says what he thinks and doesn’t care about sacred cows of any color.  He’s saved me a buch of time talking about the debate and what was covered up about the riots.  Jason has some good insights.  And he’s unafraid of the outrage he causes.  Good for him.

Chris Wallace, American Media Fiddle During Debate As BLM, Antifa Burn Our Country

 

 

 

Guest Contributor – War Pig – Comments on Antifa’s Announced Disruptions in Washington D.C.

I see where Antifa and BLM are calling for the burning of Congress and SCOTUS over replacing RBG. They should remember a little factoid, to wit:

The Third Infantry Regiment (Old Guard) is mostly known for guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and performing ceremonial duties at the White House and Arlington National Cemetery. However, they are a fully trained, fully armed and equipped infantry regiment filled with motivated hard chargers. They will have something to say about burning down Congress or SCOTUS or the White House. They are fully capable of putting down an insurrection.

It would not be wise to provoke their use as infantry. A little reminder for the fools at Antifa and BLM.

And since it is Washington, DC, posse comitatus prohibitions do not apply. Trump does not need to even invoke the insurrection act. He can just order the Old Guard to saddle up in full battle rattle and stand by.

When the American Indian Movement occupied the Bureau of Indian Affairs HQ in Washington, they strutted about showing Winchesters and such and declaring they would never move until certain things were fixed to their liking. Nixon, being a clever sort did not call out the Old Guard. He just called in the Rangers to look things over. The rangers observed and allowed themselves to be seen observing. Ranger patches in full view.

Seeing that, the protesters held a quick meeting, declared “victory”, and left for home. Rangers do not play well with others. If you want to influence hearts and minds, call the Green Beret. If all you want to do is break sh*t and hurt people, call the Rangers.

This of course would be more of a job for the Old Guard than the Rangers. The Old Guard are expressly allowed to defend the capital with no martial law being declared. Since DC is a federal city most laws are a shade different there. Besides, the Rangers are currently employed elsewhere.

12SEP2020 – Looking Around and Looking Ahead

Now that Ringling Brothers’ Barnum and Bailey Circus has been forced out of business by PETA, President Trump truly is the Greatest Show on Earth.  There always seems to be another spectacle starting up as the previous act finishes.  From what I understand he has five foreign policy victories to celebrate this week.  Israel is being recognized by:

  • United Arab Emirates
  • Bahrain
  • and Kosovo

Saudi Arabia is now allowing Israeli flights to go through their airspace.  And just to keep things interesting the President brokered a deal between Serbia and Kosovo.  Already two separate nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize for the President have been sponsored by individuals who preface their remarks by declaring that they dislike President Trump but admit that he has already done more for world peace than Obama ever did either before or after his empty win of the Peace Prize was awarded to him.  Joe Biden claims that President Trump is achieving these victories by accident!

The President is crisscrossing the country to attend campaign rallies that draw huge enthusiastic crowds and of course, he is tweeting away on all the most important and even some quite trivial events.  He really does have an energy level that is hard to imagine for a man his age.

Meanwhile even Biden’s strongest advocates admit they haven’t yet figured out how they will make their candidate attractive enough to convince millennials to vote for him.  Well, they did get him out of the basement and all the way to Pennsylvania last week.

As I said it’s an amazing show.  And it should keep even jaded political junkies such as me completely engaged right up to Election Day.  Of course, there are plenty of other side shows to keep us watching.  They’re not as amusing.  The spectacle of unending rioting in Portland is not a pleasant sight but it is important.  A poll of Oregonians shows that 66% disapprove of the riots and 60% think the Mayor of Portland is doing a poor job of ending the protests.  Now if a state as blue as Oregon is unhappy with their unending riots just think what purple states like Colorado and Nevada must be thinking of their “protests.”

The ongoing COVID lockdown in the Northeast remains a good story to remind the country of what shutting down a large portion of your small business community does to economic health.  New York has lost tens of thousands of jobs and when combined with the disruptions caused by the rioting is hardly recognizable as the dynamic business and cultural center it once was.

And the remote teaching model being used in the schools in the Northeast has been a nightmare for working mothers.  Many of them are attempting to re-enter the office environment after six months but have to work around a schedule where their children are home at least three days a week.  Employers say they will accommodate these changes but problems have cropped up on all sides.

Then we have the looming specter of voter fraud through the use of mail in ballots.  The Democrats hope to drag the voting process out for weeks and possibly months.  And they have been talking up the idea that President Trump will be ejected from the White House by troops.  Oh, those Democrats love their drama.

Meanwhile Bill Barr teases us with announcements of rioters and agitators being arrested.  Sure, he arrests some of the worst actors but nothing is done to prosecute Antifa and BLM as organized crime groups using the RICO laws.  And we’re not hearing much about the Durham investigation anymore.  I guess now that his end of summer deadline is blown, we can’t expect anything to come of the effort.  I was glad to see that the feds went after that rat that murdered the Patriot Prayer guy in Portland a week ago.  But I guess it has to be something as egregious as murder on camera to get much of anything from our Justice Department.

Well, that’s a snapshot of the world around us.  It’s a madhouse in every way imaginable but we keep advancing down the road one step at a time.  My advice is don’t be surprised at anything that happens but take every news report with a big grain of salt.  As the President is fond of saying a lot of what you hear is fake news.  And regardless of the outcome in November remember that it’s up to each of us to decide how we will live our lives and who we will spend it with.  There are millions of good people out there and we can achieve an enormous amount if we don’t get discouraged and if we think clearly about what we want to accomplish.  I have spoken with many people out there and we’re learning that we aren’t alone and we aren’t at the mercy of the Woke Left.  It’s a pleasure writing this for anyone who is looking for a bit of news and a positive thought from someone on our side of the fence.  Have a good day.
