NEW VIEWING ON WND.COM AND THE UNZ REVIEW:The Fauci Quiz: How Many Americans Did Gnome, M.D., Allegedly Kill?

Think you’ve heard it all about medicrat Anthony Fauci? Well, there are a few things you still don’t know about the foolish Fauci. That’s because all other news analysts, left and right, have an agenda. “Hard Truth,” with David Vance and yours truly, has only one agenda:  unvarnished, nonpartisan truth.

Between March 5 and April 5, 2020, 10,598 Americans died from Covid-19 (see: https://covidtracking.com/data/national/deaths), very likely because Fauci warned them, then, against purchasing the N95 mask. “Don’t you dare,” terrorized Gnome, M.D. As noted here: “Kung Flu is a killer, all right, but so are the bureaucrats.”

The Covid carnage under Fauci does not take into account his role in delegitimizing therapeutics. Just imagine if Fauci had similarly downplayed and delegitimized treatment for HIV/AIDS, and had insisted, as he does today, that salvation lay predominantly in a vaccine against that particular RNA strand?

If “civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy,” in Ayn Rand’s magnificent words, then sexual exhibitionism – homosexual, heterosexual, and everything in-between – is anathema.

That’s the idea behind “An Effective Military Must Put Hets, Homos And Anything In-Between Back In The Closet,” now available as a video.

The “Hard Truth” broadcast, with David Vance and myself, is available in podcast and video, both, for your convenience, from our Podbean location. There you can also get our podcast app from the assorted app stores, so you can listen on the go.

In Sweden, the military rally behind the LGBTQ flag, saying this they will defend. But the primary purpose of a military is to defend their borders and their people, something they refuse to do. WHY is the Western military so emasculated? Might it be the feminine touch? Are our societies increasingly feminized, run by worriers, not warriors? Oh yes.

UPDATED (8/1): Unheard Of In America: British Parliamentary Committee Issues Report About Underprivileged Whites

America, Argument, Britain, Conservatism, Government, Left-Liberalism, Race, Racism

It could not happen in the USA!

The Economist reports that “a [British] parliamentary committee,” no less, has issued a report about the difficulties of  “working-class white pupils.” They are underperforming.

The magazine covers evenhandedly  how “the use of the phrase ‘white privilege’ may harm poor white youngsters who, by definition, are nearer the bottom of the socioeconomic pyramid than the top.”

More crucially, can you imagine a US Congressional committee even commissioning such a report? I can’t. The Republicans would certainly not push for such long-overdue fact-finding. They have not! Why not? UPDATED (8/1): Humor: Question: Why have Republicans not got a congressional committee looking into white underprivilege and disadvantage, as the British have? Answer: Because Republicans “think” JD Vance’s novel, Hillbilly Elegy, is social science. 

Why, there would be riots in the streets if white poverty and underprivilege got attention from the representatives of those poor, underprivileged whites.

The Johnson column calmly explains what each side means when it asserts or rejects “white privilege”:

As is often the case, the two sides of this debate seem to mean very different things by this concise but explosive term. Sensible folk who give credence to the idea of “white privilege” argue that, whatever their other problems, white people do not face the same race-based disadvantages as ethnic minorities, from the minor (a shopkeeper training a wary eye on them) to the more serious (teachers reflexively judging them to be less capable than they really are).

But some sceptics of “white privilege” think it implies that every white person is privileged in an overall way—or even that, merely by existing, white people are complicit in the discrimination suffered by minorities. For some who interpret it this way, the concept is discredited by the existence of poor white people.

In recent years, however, the word has been widely used to refer to the advantages enjoyed by the white majority in countries such as Britain and America. In the raging culture wars, “white privilege” is now among the many phrases lobbed like online grenades between opposing camps. Since the combatants cannot agree on what it means, it is not surprising that there is no consensus on whether it exists and what should be done about it.

The problem with these terms is their compression. They are signposts rather than arguments, only making sense in the context of more elaborate reasoning. Those who use them often seem to hope that the catchphrases invoke all the nuances of the underlying concepts. In the vituperative, tweet-length exchanges that now pass for political debate, that is usually wishful thinking.

Kind of banal and sanctimonious. The take-away news here being that a British “parliamentary committee [actually] released a report into under-performing working-class white pupils.”

Unheard of in American halls of power.
