Gunning For Tom Brady

Race, Racism, Sport, The Zeitgeist

I don’t give a tinker’s toss about the “Ow My Balls!” episode in which the New England Patriots are embroiled. (The satire “Idiocracy” predicted that in 2505, the age of the idiot, America would be enthralled by one of two seconds-long “films.” The first is “Ow my Balls!”) Worth pondering, however, is the hatred directed toward Tom Brady.

On MSNBC, the other day, a character from The Nation, Dave Zirin is his name, alluded to Brady’s own decaying Dorian Gray portrait stashed away in his attic.

In “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” Oscar Wilde told the riveting story of “a man who never ages while his portrait turns decrepit” because of his own “moral and spiritual putrefaction.” (The New Yorker.)

Nice comparison!

The Zirin bloke also protested the presence of a white man (Tom Brady) in a predominantly black sports league.

Brady’s a Dorian Gray (beautiful but evil) and he’s white (privileged but evil): If you ask me, these racists are gunning for the guy.

‘Gun Violence’? No! Goon Violence

Crime, GUNS, Left-Liberalism, Media, Nationhood, Race

“‘Gun Violence’? No! Goon Violence” is the current column, now on The Unz Review, America’s smartest webzine. An excerpt:

… For a short while, the thing called “gun violence” was uppermost in the minds of the blabbering class. Two lovely young people, Alison Parker (news reporter) and Adam Ward (photojournalist), of Roanoke, Virginia, were gunned-down on live TV, is a scene reminiscent of the film “15 Minutes,” in which an anchor’s drive for ratings and a murderer’s quest for his 15 Minutes of Fame result in … gun, fist, and other gratuitous, on-air violence.

A week on, CNN’s Poppy Harlow was using the language of George Orwell’s Oceania to describe the entity, “gun violence,” that “took” the life of poor Deputy Darren Goforth, of Harris County, TX. Shortly thereafter, the same inchoate culprit claimed Lt. Joe Gliniewicz of Fox Lake, Illinois.

Ambush assaults on police are, indubitably, up. And so is Orwellian newsspeak.

In Roanoke and Harris County, black men were implicated in directing the guns at Parker, Ward and Goforth. The killers acted on a tip from their mentors in media. That’s right: Do not be so hard on the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The movement is in its infancy. Most people are unfamiliar with it. “Black Lives Matter,” moreover, is not nearly as innervating and enervating as the meme disseminated, year-in and year-out, by media, academia, by the pedagogy and the politicians; over the airwaves, on the teli, in classrooms, in the halls of power; in textbooks, film, music and in every other cultural outlet and product.

For decades has this “Racial-Industrial Complex” been schooling Americans in the fiction of systemic black oppression by white America. The threshold for oppression is remarkably low. To be white is to oppress The Other; to be black is to be oppressed.

Concomitantly, there has been an epidemic of citizen fatalities at the hands of police officers. Combine the latter with the ritualistic, imbecilic, systemic and baseless drumbeat about oppression of blacks by whites—and you have your catalysts (not causes) for why so many blacks imagine they’ve been wronged, and how some individuals are encouraged, inadvertently, to act on their anger.

As to the former catalyst: In 2014 alone, attests activist William B. Scott, police “gun-violence” dispatched 1,100 people, an average of three every day of the year. …

Read the rest.“‘Gun Violence’? No! Goon Violence” is now on The Unz Review, America’s smartest webzine.

You Say McKinley; I Say Denali

America, Constitution, Federalism, Race, States' Rights

To me it seems natural and organic for the people of Alaska to name the hilly protrusions along their stomping ground.

Aaron Goldstein, at The American Spectator, doesn’t wish “to make mountains” of the fact that his Highness, Barack Obama, changed the name of Mount McKinley to Denali. Instead, Goldstein laments the president’s flouting of the Constitution or the federal scheme (not quite sure which).

Can we agree that federalism, like freedom, is long dead, and is the stuff of nostalgia?

The other thing I wonder about is the ease with which my fellow Americans offend native Americans (Indians), as opposed to the crippling fear they have of saying anything that might make blacks mad.

It’s to the credit of native Americans that they are less menacing.

Hate Group (SPLC) Targets Trump

Free Speech, Left-Liberalism, Political Correctness, Propaganda, Race, Racism

It was but a matter of time before the nation’s premier hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), zeroed in on Donald Trump. Here’s how Mark Potok, the hateful, deeply silly head honcho at Hate Inc., tars individuals with the white supremacist Mark of Cain (via The Huffington Post):

… former White House communications director and three-time presidential aspirant Pat Buchanan was the last presidential candidate to appeal to white supremacist groups in a similar way.

Trump, who is running for president as a Republican, has attracted the support of a number of prominent white supremacists, including David Duke, a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

An edited transcript of HuffPost’s conversation with Potok is below. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Potok’s remarks.

When was the last time a presidential candidate or other contender for national office got traction with white supremacists the way Trump has?

There is no question we have not seen anything like this since Pat Buchanan. Those two have a lot in common. I am not sure if Trump views himself as a white nationalist, but he has white nationalist positions. When he calls Mexicans rapists and murderers, he is dog-whistling in a very clear way to this far-right constituency. Buchanan and Trump are appealing to the same constituencies.

In terms of public figures, [Fox Business host] Lou Dobbs had some of the same appeal, but among politicians, Buchanan is really the last person to have the effect Trump is having. …

MORE, if you can stomach it.

Wait For This: Trumps Too White, Wealthy & Pretty To Win

Elections, Race, Racism

When in the ascent of The Donald do you think we will be told by the politico-media strumpets that the Trump family is too white, wealthy and pretty to win America’s affections? Just wait for it.

… Settled down (maritally speaking) for now, Trump has two sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, and a daughter, Ivanka, with first wife Ivana; a college-age daughter, Tiffany, with second wife Marla Maples; and a 9-year-old son, Barron, with current wife Melania.

Having grown up in the spotlight, his three eldest children manged to find success and happiness while sidestepping the usual celebrity kid drama. Meanwhile, 21-year-old Tiffany, an aspiring pop star who was raised in LA, is attending business school on the East Coast and hitting the town with Manhattan’s so-called “Rich Kids of Instagram.” And young Barron is busy just being a fourth-grader.

Here’s everything you need to know about each of the Trump heirs …

The Beast They Unleashed Turns On … White Liberals

Democrats, Left-Liberalism, Race, Racism

Four minutes and 23 seconds into this CNN segment (8/3/15), Van Jones (opposite Michael Thornton) insists that Joe Biden, essentially, is an old white man who cannot possibly cater to the rising racial justice and economic equality wings of the Democrat Party. Black Lives Matter, DREAMERS, and other racial-inclusion folks will not settle for a Joe Biden.

What have white liberals wrought?

The same obtains for socialist Bernie Sanders, over whom two African-American women rode racial roughshod, in the socialist city of Seattle. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes talks to Washington State Senator Pramila Jayapal who pretty much lays down the law for white liberals.

This is what the silent majority of this country is sick of.

The detestable, borderline retarded Pramila—an Indian import to our state, where she promotes the evils of socialism and the libel of a racist America—has disgorged a screed in which she blames Bernie and whitey in general for the ugly, irrational, inexcusable behavior of the quasi-black females who got in Sanders’ face.
