Charlottesville

I’m not going to engage in any defense of any of the idiots that descended on Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. By any name, fascist and racist political groups deserve no quarter in the arena of public debate. What strikes me as ironic is the reaction of mainstream media over this madness……..the same folks who have ignored racial political violence in the past few years have finally become enraged over Charlottesville.

Neo-Nazis and White Supremacists are pieces of dogshite. People who engage in violence to further their political goals are dogshite. People who make shields and clubs in their parent’s basements to take to political events are sad, human garbage. People who put values and belief in the most horrendous and murderous movements in history, like Hitler’s Socialism and Stalin or Mao’s Communism, are sad and pathetic creatures. When America’s system of education has churned out people who reject Capitalism and Individualism in favor of Socialism and Communism, and who identify as a member of a victim group or grievance class, it has failed.

For several years now I have written extensively on the danger and folly of Identity Politics. What we are now witnessing is the only outcome that a victimhood mentality can generate. Everyone engaged in this violence has something in common……namely that Identity and Political bent are based on your race, class, and group of grievance. When we sanction special treatment or special punishment based on Identity, we are allowing and encouraging this type of chaos and violence.

There is only one solution to the mounting problems of Identity and Racial Politics, and that is the same solution proposed by our Founders: That all are created equally in the eyes of our Creator, and that the rights of the Individual are greater than that of the Collective. Only when every American sees themselves and others as Individuals – deserving of respect and value – equal in opportunity and not outcome – can the events that occurred in Virginia be avoided.  Instead of falling for the controlled demolition of our Union by forces intent on dividing us, ask yourself: Who benefits from this? If you are reading this and you are a believer in Identity Politics, ask yourself: If my current philosophy is played through to its end, where will it lead?

If you cannot judge someone by the content of their individual character instead of the color of their skin, no matter what that color may be……..you are the problem, period.

A Change Is Gonna Come

Tyrants, cult leaders, sadistic dictators, and megalomaniacs have all had at least one thing in common…………they rewrite or erase history. A big part of Chairman Mao’s communist “revolution” was the attempted removal of anything indicative of China’s long and rich history. Art, books, ancient texts and artifacts, even the teachers who possessed knowledge of China’s past were purged.  For years this has also been the mission of ISIS and other Islamic groups across what was once referred to as “the cradle of civilization”. They are systematically razing….I mean destroying all trace of…..any and all ancient ruins and artifacts that they come across, forever removing known, and unknown, pieces of humanity’s hidden past. These are the actions of tyrannical ideologies, and their adherents, all in service to their crazed desire to limit knowledge and control the past, present, and future of those they hold power over. Sadly, the Cult of Social Justice – America’s new religion – has begun it’s purge.

Starting today, New Orleans has begun its newest project in service to the god of Identity Politics…….they’re removing the Civil War statues of historical figures like Robert E. Lee and others. You can even see pictures of the typical white beta-male SJW standing in front of one of these monuments holding the unintentionally-ironically-racist  “black lives matter” sign in support. This kind of thinking should have no place in America, a country founded by followers of The Enlightenment, where knowledge of history and human behavior is supposed to inform and educate the public. Instead, the same morons who think there is such a thing as “intersectional gender identity” now think that remembrance of actual history is too offensive and “problematic” to remain in our midst.

Like the muslims who dream of toppling the great cathedrals of Europe, the American Left dreams of redacting any trace of people and events that they deem offensive. Let me be clear, the Confederacy was representative of the awful realities of the South’s slave economy, and that includes all the bad stuff you’re thinking……..but that does not change the fact that this nation went to war with itself, almost destroyed itself, and then put itself back together – with over a million people dead or maimed as a result. It happened. There were famous, notable figures on both sides. Statues and monuments were raised all over the country because of the scale and scope of the war – and most importantly, because a history forgotten is a history repeated.

Like the three famous monkeys that are used to portray the age-old “hear no, speak no, see no evil”, the Progressive Left wishes to remove unpleasant references to our unpleasant past.  But just like gender, the true effect of multiculturalism, immigration, and entitlement spending…….simply lying, imposing twisted logic, and covering up the truth doesn’t make something real and actual disappear. Logic and reason do not cease to exist just because you replace it with childish emotion…….and the facts of history do not cease to exist just because you tear them down. Things like racism and tyranny are born from ignorance, and blotting out history breeds it.

Several months ago, while doing research for another column, I joked that a visit to Stone Mountain, Georgia would be a good idea……..because it wouldn’t be long before a giant black curtain is installed over the famed carved monument located there. Now that joke has become a prophecy. What part of our history is next to be removed and demolished in the name of childish sensitivity? Who decides what will be redacted, and for whose benefit? The supposed evolved-among-us can once again celebrate their success……….less knowledge, less freedom, less Socratic critical thinking, less free speech, less reminders of the unfortunate facts of human existence, less tolerance, and lesser intelligence…………all in accordance and unity with the greatest monsters that ever existed. Bravo, SJW morons………sharing the same philosophies as all of your favorite boogeymen. Will there be someone as dumb as you are in a hundred years to erase your stupidity from history? Let’s hope not……..because your ignorance is truly………..historic.

A League of Their Own

I’m going to point something out that everyone seems to be missing in the ridiculous debate about what spoiled-brat-turned-overrated-quarterback Colin Kaepernick is doing. If you live under a rock, Colin is the idiot from the San Francisco 49’ers that has decided to not stand for the National Anthem in protest of evil Whitey and in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.  I’ll type this slowly so everyone can understand……. He has no right to protest.

Now that you are aghast at my statement, and fuming at my insensitivity, let me clarify before you are “triggered” into running to a “Safe Space”. I assure you I am a supreme believer in the Bill of Rights, so I’ll explain.  You see, young Colin is what I like to call, “on the clock”, just like when you go to work. Now……let me ask you something…….do you have freedom of speech at work? Do you have freedom of expression? If your answer is “yes” then you are as stupid as the street bullies and thugs that populate the NFL nowadays.

I challenge all those reading this to perform their own exercise in NFL-style freedom. March into your Boss’s office, have a seat, and then proceed to tell him or her that you think they suck, are stupid, and that the company employing you is a joke. Then go back to your desk, or whatever, and count the minutes before you are escorted out of the workplace. Welcome to unemployment, and good luck collecting your O-Benefits with what your former employer puts on your pinkslip.

Guess why that happens? Because when you agree to work for someone you are signing away that part of your life to your employer……they, for all intents and purposes, own you……and you have agreed to act in accordance with their wishes and policies. So by all means enjoy your freedom……just know that it has consequences.

The absurdity of men who play a game for millions of dollars a year, more than most fans make in a lifetime, protesting the very Nation that affords them the lavish pay and lifestyles they enjoy, should be ridiculed at every opportunity. Add to that the inability of people to understand the hypocrisy of the positions of some of these intellectual giants due to their politically correct brainwashing, and you have a truly laughable situation.

The Grievance Class in this country, equal parts spoiled, rich celebrities/athletes and Social Justice Warriors, has become truly unhinged and disconnected from reality. So please, NFL crybabies……..keep “taking a knee”……just don’t be surprised when afterwards the people who pay you and buy your jerseys tell you to “take a hike”.
