The fatal attraction of government is that it allows busybodies to impose decisions on others without paying any price themselves. That enables them to act as if there were no price, even when there are ruinous prices â€” paid by others.
With equal parts sarcastic hilarity and sadness, this sums up seeing the various breeds of Liberals, Progressives, Leftists, and “Woke” sorts’ constant march towards their vision of utopia. All they’re ever doing is plodding in a circle and digging a trench of repeated failure.
It is rather a, if not the definition of insanity; to do the same thing time and time again, expecting to get a different result. And that is what these “Progressive” sorts are and have been doing. At most/worst they try either variations on a theme or, having reached yet another failure point, they’ve expanded their criteria for either victimhood or oppression.
Yep! Chicago’s mayor, Lori Lightfoot is literally the most extreme and shameless racist and anti-American activist in the American political sphere. But she goes home to a White woman’s pussy! Hence, she’s woke in the streets and oppressed in the sheets. ROFLMAO!
Now, to be fair, this is entirely based upon suppositions for which none of us have any evidence in support thereof. None of us have any clue what, if any, Womandingo – or is it Mandyko – games these two get up to in bed or in their relationship in general.
But, in an expression of equality of fairness, we all “know” that dating, marrying, or even having children with people of a different race doesn’t mean that you’re not a racist. Indeed, in the case of Blacks, being involved with a White is racist itself.
Still though, Lightfoot having “gone White” is funny, ironic, and typical of her sort of Negro.
You can’t easily go online without reading or hearing America’s racism and how America and, hence, Americans are racist, racist,Racist, RACIST. Hellfire! we’ve Rep. “Mad” Maxine Waters hooting, hollering, and jabbering away that. “Every day, we have seen this nation get more racist than anybody thought perhaps [it] would be at this point in time,” in response to Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-SC) unequivocal statement that America was not a racist country.
But, is this even remotely true? The answer is a bit complex and convoluted in detail. Or, so it seems to me.
Why Racism Exists Today
Prima facie, the 5-panel cartoon above seems to state the reason why racism is considered to be rampant in America by so many. The Lamestream Media’s repeated failure to provide any data in “racial incidents” beyond an American did something to a Black is the proximate cause for many people buying into the idea that Americans are racist. However, that’s just the tip of a very large and very disgusting iceberg.
Yes, the media normally refuses to provide a context in White v. Black interactions in order to fuel racial anger and bring about more and – they hope – greater conflicts. That’s been part and parcel of their job since the mid-to-late 1960s when they started having to actually “earn their keep.” That, however, is only part – and probably a small part – of why they don’t explain the situation. Providing such context would anger what readers/viewers they have and bring, bring out the ravening #CancelCulture trolls, and spark a civil war within their own companies.
But, the horrific thing is that any context or explanation for any action taken by an American against a Black isn’t newsworthy and cannot be so in the minds of the sorts still devoted to the Lamestream Media. To the Blacks and their “White” enablers, the is never a valid reason for an American to take any action against a Black ever.
And that is a large part of why racism exists today. It’s a revealed truth and article of faith among Americans’ domestic enemies. As such, it will always be found by them and any argument otherwise will be considered by their sort as the worst sort of heresy.
Hollywood’s been a den of iniquity and anti-American sentiment for many, many years – since its inception for the former and since the 1960s for the latter. Hence, why actions have been taken against them in the past. Still though, even with that long history of wrongness, Hollywood can manage to shock my sensibilities. In this case, it’s their new, “woke” requirement for the Best Picture award.
Forget the quality or “importance” of the film. First, its creators have to meet all the racial, gender, and sexual proclivity quotas for its creation. 🙄 And, ever so ironically, this is likely the beginning of Hollywood’s very own Blacklist.
Despite the Left’s and their minority sharecroppers’ belief that they can blithely Humpty Dumpty any all words and phrases, they are still bound by the objective meanings based upon context.
So, when they chant and rant about “justice,” in the context of police officers dealing with Black criminals, what the meaning is is that they want the police officers to be killed. They want the police to be eradicated. Some of them don’t even couch it in soft terms anymore.
Then, #BlackLivesMatter – now often TLA’d to #BLM has always been steeped in- and all about violence, specifically rioting, burning, looting, and murdering Whites in general and law enforcement officers in particular. They’ve always used a small number of peaceful protestors as shields, both physical and propaganda, for the feral violence that underscores their every action.
This, of course, greatly pleases the Democrats. While it’s fallacious to claim that they engineered the rioting and insurrection of #BlackLivesMatter and #Antifa cells, they’ve pandered to- and enabled its perpetrators and profiteered off of it at a chance they could get or manufacture.
What the Dems are doing is encouraging their constituencies to #VoteByRiot and/or the threat thereof. It’s an old-school, realpolitik technique for revolution and societal destruction called Propaganda of the Deed (Propagande par le Fait), though the Dems, by and large, are doing this by proxy instead of by direct example on their part.
James Hodgkinson’s 2017 attempted mass assassination of Congressional Republicans and the Dems’ response to it is a perfect example of this. The ongoing race riots are more of the same.
But I’m sure that the Dems would use different words to describe their actions. They can’t, however, change the meaning of what they’re doing no matter what words they misuse to do so.
