Hollywood’s It Reboot

I don’t know if it’s a horror show or a dark comedy, but the blockbuster revelation of- and the scrambling response to the outting of Harvey Weinstein’s decades-long history of sexual harassment and sexual assault is quite the spectacle. 😉 Frankly, it’s one of the most interesting productions that has come out of Hollywood in a long time.

Feliz Dia De La Raza

Dia De La Raza Feliz Dia De La Raza

Today, October 12, large swaths of Spanish-speaking people will celebrate their own version of Columbus Day, Dia De La Raza (Day Of The Race). It’s celebrated on October 12 because on that day in 1492 Christopher Columbus landed in the New World but it is not a celebration of Columbus’ “discovery.” It’s a celebration of Spain and Portugal’s colonization of Central and South America and the creation of the Hispanic “race.”

Yes, you read that right. The Latinos annually celebrate, not just the “discovery” of the New World by Columbus, but its colonization; the destruction of its indigenous civilizations, religions, cultures, and languages; and the genetic genocide of its indigenous peoples through rape and intermarriage.

And nary do we hear a peep of umbrage from the Liberals and Progressives. No, these are “Non-Hispanic Whites” at worst we’re talking about. “Brown people.” People possessed of protected traits that grant them the privilege of never being attacked by our ever-oikophobic Liberals and Progressives. The Latinos “Aren’t White Enough” to generate outrage in the Left.

Who’s To Blame?

Who's To Blame For Rapes and Mass Shootings?
Who’s To Blame?

Yes, it’s in our nature to seek out who or what is to blame for any crisis – sometimes so much so that common decency is left by the wayside. Of course more consistently and less hypocrisy when it comes to blame would be nice. It’s a shame that the hoplophobic Left can’t manage that. Then, consistency and probity aren’t in their natures.
