Her ten reasons.

It’s a fairly long read, so give yourself some time.  I could knit pick with this or that part, but the the good and juicy parts of this far outweigh my crankiness.





The Dime Store Indian’s 11 Commandments For Kooktardism

18 07 2014

Detroit

Fauxcahontas speaks:

1.  We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, so that’s why I’m going to have Goldman Sachs fund my Presidential campaign.

2.  We believe in science, which means we must believe that human evolution totally stopped in regards to brain development 200,000 years ago.

3.  We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, instead it should be rigged to benefit never-do-evil paragons of virtue like Google.

4.  We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means opening the borders.

5.  We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them right up to the point when their work is replaced by robots.

6.  We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt, and that’s why I’ll always be committed to the set of Democrat Party policies that allow colleges and universities to raise college costs year in and year out.

7.  We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means letting all the world’s grifters in to collect SSI.

8.  We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work, and it’s a good thing too, because we won that battle decades ago.

9.  We believe that equal means equal; everybody except for me will be equally impoverished and miserable, and as men and women of science, we have faith in equality.

10.  We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means letting the whole world flood in, because slave wages and tuberculosis and Ebola outbreaks and the demographics of an international airport and bowling alone…and all that jazz.

11.  And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies.  I will fight with every last drop of your blood to make Hobby Lobby pay for your abortifacient drugs!

And the main tenet of conservatives’ philosophy? “I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.”  Oops, my bad, that’s more like my philosophy, I got mine, the rest of you don’t have a way to pass yourselves off as part Indian.

UPDATE

A bonus 12th commandment:

“In my quest to end corporate welfare, I am proud to announce today that I support the Export-Import Bank.”





Dread October

Pic from the UKDM’s coverage of today’s Mexican Standoff in Murrieta, California.

And that sign advertises this website, which seems to be a New York-based group that pretty much demands that blacks and Hispanics be exempt from criminal law.  Its signatories are almost a list of who’s who in the crackpot far left, including at least one overt communist.

I wonder what they’re planning for October.  Or rather, I wonder if they’re planning anything that’s going to illicit any more than a collective yawn from the rest of the world.

Most of what they want, Mayor Oil Driller has already given them.  SQF is gone, and weed is de facto legalized.  Yet they’re still upset.

 





Metallica Doctrine

You’re not paranoid unless they’re really out to get you.

Yeah, you can take that to mean that if someone is really out to get you, then your paranoia about people out to get you isn’t paranoia.

But the sarcastic point that phrase is trying to make is that people’s paranoia warps their perception of reality.  If you’re paranoid enough to think that a lot of people are out to get you, you are going to find evidence of that.

With that, let me give you a paragraph from this piece:

There is no venue more receiving, that more struggles to accommodate, than universities. They have codes and classes and whole courses to instruct on the vile institutions of racism — and yet to read the news is to come away with the idea that every day some campus is a repulsive hotbed of bigotry.

Definitely read the whole thing.

It’s like the late Lawrence Auster said, though this isn’t the exact quote:  The more sensitive people are to *-ism or *-phobia, the more of it they will “find.”  I could add that it invokes a vicious dynamic cycle, where oversensitivity to *-isms and *-phobias leads people to finding lots of it, which fuels more sensitivity, which fuels more evidence, and so on.

And where does it all end?  Progressives in Cambridge, Massachusetts hiding under their beds hoping that the Klan rally and march du jour through Cambridge passes them by, all the while their nervous shaking hands are holding a flashlight in one hand and a pen in the other hand that’s writing a check to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

 

 





Lovely Parting Gifts

The paranoid hustling dweeb who has a low rent office in the West Bottoms may have accidentally stumbled onto a good point when he said this:

“There has been a longitudinal study that finds the longer you are in the tea party, the more racist you become,” he said, according to the MacIver Institute, which covered the conference.

I think what is really happening there is that white people who gravitate toward aracial rightist movements (of which the TPM is the latest of many in the past and present) go there thinking they’re really a secret racist movement.  But once they hang around long enough and finally figure out they’re a bunch of negro-lovers, they leave and search out actual racialist-nationalist organizations.  I think what Zeskind, MacIver, and the rest of them think in error is that the TPM is some sort of gateway drug that makes white people racially minded, when, like I just said, they were already racially minded, went to the aracial right thinking they were really racial, but eventually quit in disappointment.

 

 





It Was Real

Hanover, New Hampshire

We now know this document was for real, and not a fake.

Why?

Because Dartmouth caved.





Physical Action

27 02 2014

Hanover, New Hampshire

Chicks on the Right:

According to that sourcelink, a bunch of students who refer to themselves as “Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students” wrote a letter to administrators at Dartmouth to threaten “physical action” if the administrators do not respond to their list of demands.

And you can read the demands at the link.

There is debate over whether this list of demands and the whole story is real or a parody.

Either way, it makes me wonder:

Why are we to fear the “physical action” of “concerned Asian, black, Latin@, Native, undocumented, queer, and differently-abled students?”  Do we really fear that Jose Rodriguez, a black Hispanic homosexual wheelchair-bound illegal alien from the Dominican Republic, will throw a lukewarm cup of Starbucks coffee in somebody’s face?

As far as the @ in “Latin@,” I think it’s meant to be interpreted as both “O” and “A,” so that it’s both “Latino” and “Latina” in one word without having to write out both.
