Of, By and For the Zuck

Kauai, Hawaii

The editorial bent being used here is that Zuck is hypocritical because he wants more personal and real estate privacy even though Faceberg is where privacy goes to die.

I’m more curious that Zuck is hypocritical because he’s a xenophile, yet he wants fewer people to interact with his Hawaiian real estate.  (A hypocrisy not unique to him.)

In both illustrations of hypocrisy, they actually aren’t hypocritical.  There is a common denominator.  That being Mark Zuckerberg’s self-aggrandizement.





Misnomer

ACLU Official Mocks Elderly White People, Tells Them They Have ‘Five Years Left’

An official for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California mocked elderly white people at a city council meeting last week, telling them they had “five years left.”

Rialto, California, held a regularly scheduled city council meeting last Tuesday after a city councilman apologized for planning an event to discuss the possibility of Rialto becoming a “sanctuary city.”

Luis Nolasco, a community engagement and policy advocate for the ACLU of Southern California, stood up to speak at the city council meeting and attacked many of the white people present, saying they are not actual residents of Rialto.

Nolasco said, “This is my town.”

He said that the important part of the sanctuary city discussion is “who are the people we are talking about.”

The ACLU official said that “the people in this room are not representative of Rialto. Sorry to break it, but growing up here white people were the minority.”

“The reality is that black and Latinos are the majority of the city, and that is representative of the city, and that’s going to continue to be the case for future generations,” Nolasco, 26, added.

The city of Rialto is 72.4 percent Latino, according to a 2015 Census estimate.

The headline is a misnomer.  If not something of a deception.  The proximate causation of his enmity isn’t that he is an ACLU official, it’s that he is a Latino.

Also notice the part where he brings up this bit that “blacks and Latinos are the majority of the city,” yet we find out that Latinos by themselves are 72.4% of the city.  All that’s about is a cute attempt to goose rhetoric deceptively to try to get blacks to join the Latino side against whites.  Because as we all know, in southern California, Latinos really love blacks.





Extra Strength

Talk is that activists are demanding that the University of Missouri curators turn the campus into a sanctuary for illegal aliens.  As far as that goes, the activists, whoever they are, aren’t exactly bargaining against hostile parties.  Wouldn’t it be great if car dealers wanted to sell me expensive cars for bargain basement prices as much as I want to buy expensive cars for bargain basement prices?

These activists haven’t stopped to think about a flaw in their demands.  These activists most likely have a strong Venn diagram crossover with Black Lies Matter, definitely on the political agenda, but maybe also in terms of actual warm bodies.  Campus BLM and BLM-style groups demand that actual cops stay off campus, and that campus cops, if they’re allowed to exist at all, be unarmed.

BLM gets MUPD to disarm on duty.  These activists get the curators to declare the campus a sanctuary.  President Trump deploys the very armed ICE to Mizzou to arrest illegal aliens.  Question, activists:  Who’s going to stop ICE?  Your unarmed campus cops?  How?  With a strongly worded statement commensurate with the precepts of social justice?

Or, maybe, they’ll use spitballs.

The region doesn’t have many, but enough to be newsworthy every once in awhile.

My whitey sense tells me that this is some drug cartel dirty work.

Last straw.

Though I’ve been wondering where all this was the many times before now that it should have erupted.





Rahm’s Begging, Translated

The Latest: Emanuel asks Trump to protect immigrants

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel says he hand-delivered to Donald Trump a letter from mayors of some of the nation’s largest cities urging the incoming president to continue to protect young immigrants.

Let me translate this begging by Rahm and the other mayors:

“Latino immigrants are only practical buffer against the black undertow.  Please don’t get rid of ’em, or otherwise, we’ll be in Shitavious’s direct line of fire.”





Can’t Pardon Status

Washington, D.C.

He could.

Big but…

There’s a legal difference between status and offenses.

He could pardon specific offenses that occurred based on the individual’s status as an illegal alien, but he can’t unilaterally pardon their status as an illegal alien.

Example.

Being underage (for the purposes of alcohol consumption) is a status, getting at ticket for underage consumption is an offense based on the status.  If you get a ticket when you’re 18, plead out to it, and the next day, the Governor pardons you, he has only pardoned you for the specific offense.  He has not and cannot pardon your status.  You’re still just 18 years old, and you’ll continue to be in that status until the day of your 21st birthday.

Only a change in the hard wiring of statutory law can change status.

However, what is possible is that laws based on that status are never enforced, and the status becomes substantively meaningless.  That was the worry about immigration law until a week ago.
