NEW COLUMN: Conservatism’s Perennial Piñata

Colonialism, Conservatism, Criminal Injustice, Ethics, History, Neoconservatism

THE NEW COLUMN is “Conservatism’s Perennial Piñata.” “Politically powerless and proud, Native-Americans are an easy target.” It’s currently on WND.com. An excerpt:

…  As they heap contempt upon Native-American societies—establishment bobble heads, with admirable exceptions, are at the beck and call of African-American interests. Most conservatives agree about the legitimacy of African-Americans’ eternal grievances (“the fault of Democrats,” they intone). The same establishment offers incontinent exhilaration about the greatness of African-American heroes (MLK über alles). And the only argument mustered in these quarters for raising, rather than removing, statues for the South’s heroes is, “We need to preserve our history, horribly flawed with respect to African-Americans, mea culpa.” Or, “Who’s next? Jefferson?”

Conservatives seem constitutionally (as in physically) incapable of arguing the merits of Robert E. Lee , something Lord Acton managed on solid philosophical grounds.

Here’s a theory as to why conservatives use American Indians as their perennial piñata, while generally acceding to the aggressive demands for permanent victim status levied by African-Americans. …

Lincoln-Era Republicans Rabbited On About Racism, While Enslaving & Slaughtering Native Americans

Criminal Injustice, History, Military, Morality, Racism, Republicans, War

You won’t hear about the Radical Republicans, circa 1865, and their version of the KKK (The Union League), from Mr. Sean Hannity (or Stuart Varney).

Nor will you likely have ever heard that Lincoln-era Republicans took recreational time off from subjugating the South to:

  • butcher the Dakota Sioux in Minnesota (1862)
  • march the Navajos on the Long Walk to national extinction (1864)
  • slaughter the elderly, the women and the children of the Cheyennes and Arapahos (1864), parading their scalps and genitalia.

The “Republican Party’s vision for expansion” and consolidation was manifested in what is termed Manifest Destiny.

In other words, while freeing the slaves (allegedly) and subjugating the South (indubitably); the Union Army enslaved and slaughtered native Americans. Nice. (Oh, I forget: Some of our countrymen do think that was just dandy.)

Republicans, seemingly, have always rabbited on obsessively about racism vis-a-vis blacks—been obsessed with genuflecting to blacks—while, at the same time, rubbishing the Amerindians.

When modern-day Republican bobble-heads profess their pride in being the philosophical heiresses to the Radical Republicans, know this: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and “Pocahontas,” aka Elizabeth Warren, are with them in spirit, cheering the Radical Republicans on.

Elizabeth Warren would quickly ditch her fraudulently and opportunistically claimed Native American ancestry to agitate for today’s Antifa blacks. In this, the pseudo-Pocahontas is a Lincoln-era Republican.

UPDATED (7/23): Bless The Brothers For Protesting Police Corruption

Criminal Injustice, Critique, Justice, Law, Race

Bless the brothers; at least they protest police brutality. Compared to perpetually angry blacks, whites are cowards. No whites got riled up to riot following the cold-blooded murder by Somali cop of a white yogi lady. Australian Justine Damond was shot in the course of being a good Samaritan and reporting a crime. I’m sure protesting Minneapolis residents, mostly black, are not raging specifically because of  Ms. Damon’s death, but it’s good enough that, for once, their anger converges with that of the ever-silent majority.

Look and learn:

Chaos erupted at a Minneapolis press conference Friday night as the city’s mayor nominated a new police chief amid city-wide anger in the wake of the officer-involved shooting of an Australian bride-to-be.

Minneapolis residents and demonstrators attended the news conference, and one man began shouting down Mayor Betsy Hodges, yelling, “we do not want you as mayor” and that she is “ineffective” to applause from those gathered. As Hodges left the room, the demonstrators chanted “Bye Bye Betsy!” Signs with the phrases “Messy Betsy” and “You are next” were seen in the crown, The Associated Press reports.

About an hour later, Hodges returned to speak to the gathered press and take questions. The mayor had asked for Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau resignation after she “lost confidence in the chief’s ability to lead.” She announced that she has nominated Assistant Chief Medaria “Rondo” Arradondo to lead the department.

Earlier Friday night, Harteau had announced that she is resigning in the wake of the deadly shooting last weekend. …

Does Sean Spicer Still Need To Dignify Anti-Semitic Hate Crimes Allegations?

Anti-Semitism, Crime, Criminal Injustice, Donald Trump, Judaism & Jews

Why was Sean Spicer nattering about anti-Semitic hate crimes, during a presser the other day? Said Spicer:

“I think that there’s one other piece to this, April. While we unequivocally, no doubt about it, need to call out hate, anti-Semitism where it exists, where’s another thing we have to do. And in your case in particular, I don’t know all of the details, so I don’t want to reference any specific case. But I think we saw this the other day with some of the anti-Semitic behavior that was going out in respect to people of the Jewish faith… we saw these threats coming in to Jewish community centers and there was an immediate jump to criticize folks on the right and to denounce people on the right. And it turns out, it wasn’t someone on the right. And the president said from the get-go ‘I bet it’s not someone from the right’ and he was right.”

Should these accusations still be dignified and pursued when the acts under investigation appear to have been revealed as the combined, un-coordianted efforts of:

1. An African-American scorned. (See “Black Man Makes Anti-Semitic Threats Over Breakup With #Whitegirl.”)

2. An Israeli-American:

The 19-year-old arrested last week, Michael Kaydar, reportedly used advanced technology and voice-altering equipment to call in the threats to more than 100 JCCs, Jewish day schools and other Jewish institutions in the United States in recent months.
While many Jewish groups had blamed white supremacists for the bomb threats, Trump refused to point any fingers. In February he reportedly said that the threats against Jewish communal institutions may be a false flag “to make others look bad.”
