A Family Squabble

If I remember this joke it goes something like this;  An International Socialist and A National Socialist walk into a Civil War park…

Something smells fishy, even orchestrated, about an event where a group of Global Socialists and their cabal of Useful Elitist A-holes are positioned across from a group of National Socialists and their Confederacy of Useful Racist A-holes… and then the Mayor of Charlottesville Virginia, Michael Buffer, has all of the police leave the area.

Hmmm…

I have long espoused at this very ink-spot that the only thing Socialists like to do more than fight with Capitalists is fight with each other.  History demonstrates this over and over and over…

That brings us to the newly discovered town of Charlottesville Virginia.

And a Civil War Statue.

And a park chock full of various flavors of Socialism.

And some kind of a police department.

All culminating in Socialists doing what Socialists do… fighting with each other resulting in death.

Seriously, if you don’t want to die the very best starting point any person can adopt is to stay as far away from a Socialist as possible.  This also, necessarily, means don’t be one.  Losing ones life advocating government tyranny and state slavery is not a story that one should be proud of.  Promote the miracle of Individual Liberty and Freedom this country was founded upon from a distance.  Socialists are Dangerous!  Stay Away!  Let law enforcement handle them… unless they’re the Charlottesville PD, then just STAY AWAY and hope it sorts itself out.

Frankly, I think the Charlottesville Police Department, or rather a real police department from somewhere else, should have erected a giant Wall around these fools and made them hash it out until they came to terms.  That’s what Families are supposed to do.  “Take it out to the back yard!  Or, the Civil War Park! And don’t come home until it’s settled!”

Keep in mind folks, both of these groups believe in the subjugation of Human Beings.  One side tries to justify it using race, the other actively justifies it by their bizarre vacillating opinion of who is stupid based solely on whomever disagrees with them.  Both are poisonous.  Both ideologies have killed people, 9 Million in the case of the National Socialists and now well past 100 Million in the case of the International Socialists.

We would all be better off without any of these people.  But all we can do is promote the amazing Enlightenment Philosophy born from The Age of Reason this country was founded upon.  (Are we doing that anywhere?)

Our Socialist news outlets, or just “news outlets” to make it easy, want us to be angry with a President for not responding quickly enough in condemning one of the groups… BUT NOT BOTH.  If there were ever an illustration of the danger we face from our own press, this is it.

Look, Trump, as far as I can tell, has no ideological foundation.  I can’t place him as a Socialist any more than I can place him as a Capitalist.  I guess the only fitting label is the meaningless trash can term of “Populist” due to the fact it applies to individuals who have not given the time to think about what they actually believe in.  So “Populist” it is.

But what is really going on here?

True, it would have been the perfect time for Trump to come out swinging and go live with a full-throated defense of Individual Liberty and Freedom as clearly outlined in our Declaration of Independence.  It still is the perfect time for The Donald to explain the threat both of these groups of Evil A-Holes represent to that very Liberty and Freedom found only in the United States of America.  But refer back to what I just said… it’s not in him to understand these things.  We will have to be satisfied with some decent Supreme Court Nominees and a partial dismantling of an out of control bureaucracy.  We could find hope, if we’re looking hard enough, in the fact that he is forcing the Establishment RINO class to go on the record so the rest of us know who not to give money to and vote against in the primaries.  However that has yet to be proven out.

But back to what is really going on here?

Well, it seems pretty simple.

The Russia thing has run its course.  None of us care… at least not in terms of what Trump was doing.  A lot of us care about Hillary, Podesta, the DNC etc.  And that, that, that cannot be allowed to happen.  It’s getting uncomfortable for our homegrown Elitist Klass and thus a new narrative must be born.

Send in the Clowns…. to a Virginia park…. in a city none of us ever heard of…. seemingly out of the blue.

Don’t fool yourselves.  This theater in the park was long in the making.  The Liberals are desperate, and When all else fails… play the race card.  (Have you noticed nobody is talking about the horrors of International Socialism?  It’s all about Race.  How convenient.)

So there we were minding our own business when Terry McCauliffe and the crowd put together a show timed with a ready to eat message telling the world how Trump is a NAZI  (National Democratic Socialist).   -In all honesty, that’s giving the man a lot of credit as there is no evidence I can point to that he has thought enough about political ideology to arrive even at that.  But I digress.-

Therefore the new Narrative this Fall, when we all start paying attention again, is going to be “The Trump Administration, with specific names placed on “must go” lists, are a bunch of Racist NAZI’s! (Of course the whole Socialist thing will be glossed over because the press knows we all went to public school and have no idea that the NAZI’s were Socialists just like their Soviet buddies around the world with really only one difference and that being the ownership of production, but we can chat about that for persons brave enough to learn something down in the comments.)

That’s it folks, it’s all about a New Message for the Fall.  You didn’t buy the Evil Russian Conspiracy, sooooo… It’s a shiny new ‘thing’ to move your attention away from the Slavs and onto a well-worn page of the Communist Playbook.  Saul Alinsky would be proud, sadly, at the success some of his old tactics can still generate.

The take away?

If you want to gauge the success of Trump, out front and more importantly behind the scenes, just look at the Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth being piped into your home via the TV.  One might think that he is truly as successful as he says he is… judged by the screaming.

 


Forrest Trump

Run Forrest, Run!

A few years back I tapped out an observation regarding a strategy used by President Obama and Nansy Pelosi I termed “Blitzkrieg“. The Democrats had decided it was time to push as much Socialist Poison upon the United States as possible… all at once.

It was horribly brilliant.

Well, here we are again.  Only this time it’s the Republicans, let me rephrase that, the Trump Administration.  The strategy is still brilliant… just not horrible or poisonous.

Where Pelosi’s Blitzkrieg was ignored by the media, Trump does not suffer from a lack of opposition.  The Leftists own the press.  Period.  This is not news to anyone paying attention.  So Pelosi got a pass because it was all for ‘the greater good’ according to Elitist Aristocrats in the Media longing for a return of a King.

Now we are watching Donald Trump do the very same thing.

And what do we get?  We are being dosed with “Too Much Too Soon”… “We need more digestible bites”… “This loss in the Courts over a Travel Ban is a Huge Blow”… “We need to slow down the process!”

Hogwash.

What’s going on, and sadly it’s coming not just from the Democrats but from the Leftist Republicans as well, is screaming for more time to fabricate resistance to Trumps momentum.  It’s just darn difficult to bus minimum wage ‘protesters’ all over God’s Green Earth when you don’t know where they are needed most.  It’s also Very Expensive.  What?!  Do you think the Supporters of the Soft Slavery of Socialism are made of Money?!  Well, they are!  But that’s not the point!

The cries we are hearing to “slow down”, or critiques of the new Administration being “amateurish” are nothing more than pleading for additional time to get organized opposition in place.

Well I say stuff it.  Literally.

Rommel got it right.  Push Hard, Push Fast and Do Not Stop.  The Friction of War will not subside, but one can secure the offensive by not allowing opposition to organize.  You will suffer an occasional setback, but Forward is the direction one must continue to travel.  Even Pelosi understood this.  It was hard to recognize it on her face, but trust me, she got it.  (Cut her a break, it’s hard to recognize anything on her face.)

As far as I’m concerned there must continue to be a flurry of decisions and orders every day, Large and Small.  I don’t care about the press’ desire to have “more digestible” bites so they can try to convince you what a bad idea anything Trump wants to do is.  Frankly, nothing I’ve seen being pushed by the Trump Administration has fallen outside of topics we’ve argued for the last 30-years.  We all know where the other side stands.  It’s decidin’ time.

As far as those in the media who supposedly support all the things they’ve been supposedly supporting for the last 30-years… you should try a steaming hot cup of STFU.  We don’t need your help.  We’ve had enough of your “It’s just words” approach to destroying this country marginally slower than the Democrat Socialists.  We all recognize that if it doesn’t get done right damn now it isn’t going to get done.  We have seen this play… we have memorized the script.

You can’t get from here to there if you don’t actually intend to get from here to there… while you can still get back to there from here.

Just as Winston Groom’s character, our new president may not appear to know what he’s doing… but it’s only because he doesn’t recognize the limitations society has decided are appropriate for all of us to respect.  He is not of the Political Klass.  He has lived his entire life solving problems, not nurturing them for political benefit.  He is the Antidote with which we can break down the Established Leftist Disease permeating the Greatest Experiment in Self Government the World has ever known.

Bare in mind there is nothing new about the opposition Trump is facing.  There has never been a President who supported the Constitution in it’s entirety the Left liked.  Not one.  Even their arguments have become cliche.  It’s the same old crap… Racist, Bigot, Homophobe.  They should consider getting some new material.  But here we are.

At this point the only thing we should be hearing from every Republican, particularly Scott Brown, John McCain, Lindsey Graham etc. is “Run Forest, Run!”

I don’t care if they like him… to oppose him when he’s done nothing but support issues they have used to get elected year after year only illustrates their true Ideology.


The Declaration of Reclamation

The text of President Trump’s Inaugural Address:

“Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world: Thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.

We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation – and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.

We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.

When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.

We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.

In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over.

Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.

We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights and heal our divisions.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: That whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:

You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.”

Let’s see how he does…


Feeling Comfortable

Or,

Speaking Freely…

Or,

When Socialists get together behind Closed Doors…

Let’s get something Clear.  The Statements made by Jonathan Gruber, a Primary Architect of Obama Care and a M.I.T. Professor, were far from Stupid.

And that is the point.

Gruber’s comments were not Stupid… they were Honest.

While it’s not news to me, it might be to you…

Socialists and their Ilk see you as Stupid.

You are to be fooled, lied to and manipulated.  The only thing Socialists believe you can be counted on to do is the Wrong Thing.

Gruber, et al*, know what’s right for you… always… in every situation.  Just ask them.  (You’ll have to pretend to be one of them and do it where they think they’re safe.) They’ll tell you.

What’s an important lesson to take away from Gruber’s comments, regarding your Stupidity, is the Leftist media circling the wagons to reposition his speaking as “Stupid”.  But listen carefully… no one on the Left is saying his comments are Not True.  What is being said is it was “Stupid” for him to say them.  And what they mean is it was ‘Stupid’ for him to SAY THEM OUT LOUD WHERE YOU CAN HEAR THEM.

The Democrats are angry because you heard one of their own speak freely.

You heard a Highly Regarded Progressive Liberal being Honest about how they ALL feel about You.

Nothing is surprising by these comments.

Many of us have personally heard such statements throughout our lives.  But the Democrats, and some Republicans, have been very careful not to say such things where they can be heard by those they speak of.  Kind of like spelling out words in front of your Children…

Personally I like having Socialists be honest and open.  Just like I prefer my Racists to be honest and open.

They are Poisonous, Ugly and deeply Evil people.  And I want to know exactly who they are.

So now you know about Obama Care and how it has been based on Lies throughout it’s being Forced upon the American People.

But it’s not just about Obama Care.

It’s about how Socialists see the World… and most importantly, You.

When you subscribe to the idea that the ‘Ends justify the Means’ as Socialists do… lying to the ‘unwashed masses’, the ‘idiots’, the ‘little people’,  is just part of the Job.

They are even beginning to look for moral relativity by saying “Everybody does it.”

But hearing it for yourself… puts some things into context, like an Elected Representative publically stating “You have to pass the Law to Find Out What’s in It” as Nancy Pelosi condescendingly did.  She knew what was in it, she knew it was the Crown Jewel of the Socialists Transformation of the United States… it’s just You are too stupid to understand it.  And, on the outside chance you did understand it, you wouldn’t like it.  So Stop asking Questions, Shut Up and Pass It!

Well, they might ‘all lie’… but that doesn’t mean We should tolerate it.  Ever.  From any of them… ‘our side’ or not.

This goes especially for you ‘Liberals’ out there.  Don’t think for one moment that associating yourself with Democrats get’s you a pass…  it’s a Fatal Conceit.

They think you’re Stupid too.

Only worse…  they think you’re Useful.

(*et al refers to Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Leftists, Socialists, Fascists, Elitists, Hollywood, Environmental Activitists, Man-Made Global Warming Religion Subscribers, John McCain, anon.)


Xenophobia

If you don’t already… you will need to know this word.

xenophobia
[ ˌzēnəˈfōbēə, ˌzenə- ]

noun

intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries.
Get ready to be accused of an intense hatred of those from other countries.  It’s coming to a bunch of stories near you.
Why?
Because You’re a Horrible Xenophobe.
Sure your concern about open borders and sophomoric screening of those few who come here legally is based entirely on your health.
Sure you could be so self-centered as to think Rapidly Fatal Diseases flooding into our Country and infecting your children is not a good idea.
And sure you might believe that the access of those who could be infected with such Diseases should be Extremely Limited, if not Halted, until we can get a handle on how we’re going to address these demonstrably Life Destroying Microbes.
All Hogwash!
Truth is, You’re just a Bigot who Hates.  You’re simply using the Lives of Your Children, Family, Friends and Neighbors as an Excuse to behave the way you have Always wanted to.  And that way is to Discriminate against other people who are different.  It doesn’t matter that ‘different’ means infected with a highly contagious, and constantly mutating, form of virus that causes epidemic levels of death.  No… the truth is, you’re a Xenophobe, as well as a Homophobe (if you forgot) and most certainly a Racist.
I’m glad we could get that out-of-the-way.  We all realize Honesty is the best policy.  And we all also know your supposed Fear is only a disguise for your inner drive to be a POS.
So… when your child comes home from school and says a couple of her classmates were taken to the nurses office because they were throwing up blood all over the Mrs. Giacomo’s Class during first period home room… you should remember that it’s no big deal.  Even when it happens again… and again…  Or when little Joey says his best friend has a cough that sounds like the Sea Lion he saw on the Zoo field trip, and it wont stop, so Joey ate his friend’s well coughed on lunch because Ms. Podesta said not to worry, it’s OK.  Just let it go.
And… when you go to the voting booth in few weeks to re-elect your favorite Democrat or Select Republican, who cares more about everything just like you, you should feel good because it was Your Guy who refused to secure the borders as a Demonstration of Their Tolerance and Love of All People … and it was the same Group who currently considers asking individuals coming into the United States from Countries infected with these diseases “Do you have Ebola?” to be ‘highly effective screening measures’ insured to protect you.  Plus, lest you forget, Their Liberal Progressive brilliance Forced Obama Care upon all of us, so now your Insurance Company has had to raise their rates, as well as their deductibles, and or leave your state altogether.  Oh, and you have a new Doctor… who you don’t know… and you can’t get in to see.
Nothing supports sound sleep like knowing the people you support are the Smartest People in the Room… just like you.  And They’re telling you not to worry.
Therefore… You’re not worried.
Because… you recognize Any other behavior would just illustrate an innate bigotry.  This is especially true if you’re White.  Because White People are born that way.  White Devils.
Feel better now that you know the truth that you’re a Racist Xenophobic Hater?
Good.
Oh, and I hear Rum is particularly good at killing Ebola.  You just have to drink a lot of it.  Rubbing it all over your body could help too.
Well… at least that’s what I’m going with.

(As a Note:  I’m not sure what you call someone who discriminates against a person with Ebola… or Pertussis, Tuberculosis, Malaria, Hemorrhagic Fever, Listeria, Lice, An Ax, Who is Covered in Blood, Has a Chainsaw and a mask made of Human Skin, Is Pointing a Gun at You and yelling to everyone that can hear them that they want to kill you… or Zombies… But it would Probably still make you a Xenophobic Hater.  I suggest the Rum.)


Tolerance

Definition of Tolerance (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • tol·er·ance
  • [ tóllərənss ]
  1. acceptance of different views: the acceptance of the differing views of other people, e.g. in religious or political matters, and fairness toward the people who hold these different views
  2. tolerating of somebody or something: the act of putting up with somebody or something irritating or otherwise unpleasant
  3. ability to endure hardship: the ability to put up with harsh or difficult conditions

I’ve held back jumping on the Duck Dynasty hates Gays bandwagon… because it’s nothing new and I don’t really care.

Until now.

Let me state my position on this latest example of Liberal Tolerance.

Phil Robertson has every right to openly state what he believes.  A&E has every right as a private company to “Fire” Phil Robertson because of what he openly states as his beliefs.  You have every right to Support Phil, or Support A&E.  You can turn A&E off… you can say mean things about Phil.  You can burn Phil’s Duck Calls… On and on and on.

The only, only, only aspect of this I find remotely interesting is the idea of Tolerance.  This episode is simply another, in a long line, of incidents where Liberals fail to tolerate speech they disagree with.  Phil may very well be an A-Hole.  But where exactly is the tolerance?

Liberals find it very important to remind the rest of us that they are the most Tolerant people in the room… at all times.  But if you only tolerate those you agree with then where exactly IS the tolerance?

This is a terrific example of the Left’s War on Words.

It is all part of controlling speech.  Because if you control speech you control the argument.

But what is amazing is that we are conditioned with regularity to accept such control.

We see this in everyday life.  Several examples we have grown to except, erroneously, are the words;

Gratuity, Charity and Voluntary.

Definition of Gratuity (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • gra·tu·i·ty
  • [ grə t ətee ]
  1. money given in appreciation: a small gift, usually of money, given to somebody such as a waiter as thanks for service given
Synonyms: tip · perquisite · perk · token · donation
If the definition of gratuity above is correct… then how can one be mandatory on parties of 6 or more, or have a minimum of 15% etc.?  Once it’s mandatory or has a requirement, it’s no longer a gratuity, it’s a fee.

Definition of Charity (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • char·i·ty
  • [ chárrətee ]
  1. organization providing charity: an organization that collects money and other voluntary contributions of help for people in need
  2. provision of help: the voluntary provision of money, materials, or help to people in need
  3. material help: money, materials, or help voluntarily given to people in need
Synonyms: aid · contributions · gifts · donations · help · assistance · offerings · handouts
If something is taken from you and given to someone else it is not charity.  It is theft.

Definition of Voluntary (adj)

Bing Dictionary
  • vol·un·tar·y
  • [ vóllən tèrree ]
  1. of free will: arising, acting, or resulting from somebody’s own choice or decision rather than because of external pressure or force
  2. without pay: performing, working, or done without financial reward
  3. using volunteers: composed of, functioning with or requiring volunteers

If something is voluntary it does not require Force by others.  In other words, you don’t voluntarily pay your taxes.  You pay your txes because you must.  If you don’t, you go to jail.  That’s Force.

Apparently “Tolerance” is going the way of “Voluntarily”, a word hardly heard and rarely understood.

It seems none of us ‘Public School Kids’ know what Free Will is.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but Words mean Things.  All of the above words have to do with your ability to say “No.”  So ask yourself, why would the Left want to change the meaning of, or remove, such words from our vocabulary?  Contrary to many people’s new definition of Tolerance, it does not mean finding only those things you agree with as protected speech.  In fact, it means exactly the opposite.

Buy a dictionary… use it… before all meaning is lost forever.


Gutfeld on Trayvon Zimmerman

I stole this from www.Breitbart.com IT’S JUST THAT GOOD!

For the Full Story please visit them.

Gut Check: Fear of Facts

by Greg Gutfeld 25 Jul 2013, 2:03 PM

One thing I noticed throughout the Martin/Zimmerman story cycle: the “opinion/fact” mutation. As more facts are introduced into the mix, opinions don’t disappear after being proven wrong, they simply mutate.

We’ve seen this with other issues and debates: global warming, for example, mutated into climate change. When statistics revealed that the earth hasn’t warmed in a decade and a half, you then offer opinions about climate in general to maintain your point of view. We do this all the time, in our personal lives, too. After we exhaust all opinions, we are ultimately left with, “I really don’t want to go see your mother.”

Opinion moves like water–when one path is blocked, it finds an alternative route. If the bad guy is white, but it turns out he isn’t white, he becomes “white Hispanic.” When you find out that nearly every person involved in the matter says race isn’t a factor, then the story becomes about “stand your ground.” And even if you find that “stand your ground” may not play a role, then it becomes a “national conversation” about “self-defense” or about “the system” in general. Every time you change the turf, the opposing teams just pick a different strategy to push their point of view.

The only consistency is Al Sharpton, who never lets a fact get in the way of his persona-building outrage. I’ve repeated his sordid past many times on TV, but one fact needs to be highlighted: in 1995, Sharpton–angry over the eviction of a black-owned record store, used his radio show and rallies to foment rage. As Jonah Goldberg points out in his most recent NY Post column on Sharpton, one of the rally protesters entered a Jewish-owned store whose owner had been incorrectly blamed for the eviction and shot the place up, people included. He then set fire to it. He killed seven occupants, which Goldberg points out, were mostly Hispanic.

So, that tragedy outdid Zimmerman by a factor of seven. I don’t think Al organized a protest for that. It’s something you run from, not march toward.

My gut always tells me the Zimmerman story was about an altercation between two men: one could fight, and one had a gun. I’m no fan of Zimmerman (this was a guy in love with law enforcement, which can be dangerous when left outside of law enforcement), but I also don’t think the case is an indictment on society. Even the President agrees that race relations are vastly improved (the President IS black, after all).

Why the racial climate is better yet we still have thousands of black homicides a year is the issue he really could–and should–sink his teeth into. If those murders are not race related, then what is it related to? The “context” of poverty doesn’t uniformly fly. A lot of people are poor and don’t kill each other. I was dirt broke for a long time, and crime never crossed my mind (although I considered table dancing for elderly men).

I’d like to see Obama address that issue. Instead, he says that Trayvon could have easily been him. Maybe so, but Zimmerman could easily have been him too. After all, Obama and Zimmerman have more in common than race traffickers will admit: a white parent. Zimmerman might have been a victim of racism at some point too… I have no idea.

And believe it or not, I’ve had people lock their car doors when they saw me. Mainly because, at the time, I was young, drunk, and walking toward them. One such memory: As I approached a parked car one night, an older woman inside frantically throttled the lock and pressed down hard. I reached for the keys that were still stuck in the exterior lock of her car, removed them and dangled them. She rolled down her window, and I handed them to her. She thanked me, with a hint of embarrassment. She was white, and so was I (at the time). But I would have done the same thing if I saw me coming. I looked grubby and bug-eyed.

And so within this current hysteria–a mix of real anger, legitimate anxiety, and ratings-grabbing sensationalism–some truth is lost, or mocked. Geraldo Rivera was mercilessly reamed for his statement about hoodies; his advice–not to wear them–was taken as a simplistic dismissal of a teenager’s death. Although, if you want to stare a hate fact right in its face, a kid wearing a hoodie at night, in a neighborhood riddled by burglaries–no matter the race–raises eyebrows. Thieves everywhere wear them to conceal appearances, and so it becomes a part of criminal profiling…not racial profiling. Rivera made the mistake of stating a fact when people really just wanted opinions. Even his kids were mad at him.

We saw this opinion/fact shift also with guns. We know where most of the gun crime originates from. But after atrocities like Sandy Hook, the argument became about “assault rifles.” Not illegal handguns, or gangs, or mental illness, or broken homes, all of which arguably play a greater role in gun death.

When those facts came out, the argument switched from evil assault rifles to the insidious power of the NRA, then the Second Amendment. We cling to emotional opinions–they’re like religion and guns–even when facts point us in other directions. It was another moment when the President could have focused on specific scourges, but didn’t, for reasons I’ll get to shortly.

When the President brought up his kids and how they have such enlightened views on race, what he meant to say is: it never comes up. It’s true. He’s right. It’s met with, “What’s all this fuss about?” I see this with my niece and nephew. Race never, ever enters the picture. They think we are weird to obsess over it.

However, and it’s a big however, if teenagers have so little interest in this racial conflict, why does it continue to rear its ugly head later in life? What happens between the teenage years and young adulthood that turns the world into “us vs. them?”

College. Academia. It’s where race-baiting flourishes. It’s where, absent of competitive instincts that foster the learning of skills and desire for real achievement, we get divisive awareness raising that serves only to create agitation and pointless activism. A white or black kid seemingly unaware of the nature of “two Americas” when they’re seventeen is brainwashed by 21 into thinking that “white privilege” and “patriarchal oppression” are the true evils, propagated by the worst country ever.

This pernicious pit stop, called college, is where humanity is filled with racial outrage. It’s a gas station that serves anger, unleaded. College is a place where professors can make bank reminding the gullible that America is a bad bad place, and that things need to change–even if they hope it won’t. It guarantees them work and guest spots on Bill Maher’s Real Time. If someone, like the President, offered real solutions, they’d have to find real work.

There are glimmers of change. Look at Charles Barkley, Bill Cosby, Romany Malco, or Lupe Fiasco. None of them, I venture, are remotely conservative. I’d guess they all respect and admire President Obama. But all of them, regarding the Zimmerman trial, spoke truths that the President couldn’t or wouldn’t.

Why wouldn’t he? Because he is the product not of reality but of the teacher’s lounge. President Obama seemed to have such a hard time during that last press conference navigating the aftermath of the verdict, perhaps because he was parsing his words based on his ideological education. He could not say “gangs,” or “lack of fathers,” or “self-reliance,” because those words do not fit in the rhetoric of the polarity propagated on campus. There are times when he might refreshingly say “pull your pants up,” (which he did, once, I believe) but those moments are few and far between. Maybe he’s just not that guy.

My solution is, oddly, the same as Holder’s: an honest discussion on race. But herein lies the problem. Right now Obama exists in only one stripe of the race rainbow. He only talks to the Sharptons, but never the Steeles. Has he ever thought of sitting down and talking to Shelby Steele, or Thomas Sowell, or Larry Elder, or Ben Carson, or even Allen West?

Invite Lupe Fiasco to the White House for God’s sake!

As long as Obama relies on the Holders and the Reverend Al’s of the world for perspective, nothing will change. Cities like Detroit will continue to crumble, and prisons will become the closest to communities many young blacks have.

President Obama has three years and change to actually make change, to stand up and lead, to call those who consider him their leader to actually listen to ugly truths and positive solutions. If he did that, even I’d vote him in for a third term… and I didn’t vote for him twice.
