"This Nonsense Has Been Going On Long Enough..."

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com,

Who hit Kanye with that white privilege stick? The rapper / fashion maven / theologian / Kardashian arm candyman sent chills through the Twitterverse when he declared himself, somewhat elliptically, off-the-bus of the Progressive #Resistance movement and an admirer of the Golden One in the Oval Office. This came in his endorsement of YouTube blogger Candace Owen, who happens to not be down with the cause of the national victim lottery. Both Kanye and Candace have apparently crossed some boundary into a Twilight Zone of independent thought. Many probably wonder how they are able to get out of bed in the morning without instructions from Don Lemon.

Speaking as a white cis-hetero mammal, I’m not quite as dazzled by the president, but it’s a relief to see, at last, some small rebellion against the American Stasi who have turned the public arena into a giant holding pen for identity offenders — though it is but one corner of the triad-of-hysteria that also includes the Hate Russia campaign and the crusade against men. This nonsense has been going on long enough, while the country hurtles heedlessly into a long emergency of economic disarray.

Next in line after Kanye and Candace, a popular Twitter critter name of Chance the Rapper endorsed Kanye endorsing Candace, more or less, by tweeting “black people don’t have to be Democrats.” The horror this thought aroused! Slavery, these days, it turns out, has a lot of appeal — maybe not so much for laboring in the canefields under the noonday sun as for serving juleps in the DNC plantation house. It happened that Kanye’s mom was a college professor, Chance’s dad was an aide to Chicago Mayor Daley (Jr.), and later worked in Mr. Obama’s Department of Labor. Candace describes her childhood home in Stamford, CT, as “very poor,” but she rose far-and-fast out of college to become an executive on Wall Street in her twenties. What they seem to have in common is being tainted with bourgeois values, horror again!

In speaking up against the Victim Cartel, it is thought that they threaten a solidarity of narrative: that the USA (perhaps all of Western Civ) is composed of identity victims and identity oppressors. Candace, being a more conventional polemicist (i.e. not a rapper) makes the point overtly and repeatedly in her writing that all the “help” and solicitude black Americans have gotten from their overseers on the Democratic Party plantation has only made life worse for them — especially policies based on the idea that black people need lots of assistance to overcome structural racism and the legacies of slavery.

Luckily for the rest of us, the DNC has decided to put its mojo behind a lawsuit against Russia and Wikileaks for ruining the 2016 election. It’s an amazing exercise in idiocy — like, who, exactly, in Russia do they expect to subpoena for this epic showdown in court? If the suit finds a sympathetic judge who does not laugh it off — not so difficult these days — we’ll be treated to a fabulous Chinese fire drill in a three-ring circus of clowns running around in DNC dirty laundry. The party may not survive the suit. They’ve Whigged themselves into a final, fatal apoplexy of irrelevance.

I dunno about the perpetually scowling Kanye, with his periodic mood problems and spotlight-stealing antics on stage, or Chance the Rapper’s artificial hood raptures, but Candace makes the argument for the value of a common culture that might bind us together as a nation of individuals, not hostile tribes, starting with a language that everybody can understand. Of course, the whole Kanye / Candace dust-up may be forgotten by the middle of next week, and the country can go back to gaslighting itself into either a new civil war or world war three. Candace seems to have drive, guts, and stamina and there’s no sign that she’s going to shut up. Won’t some Ivy League university please invite her to speak, just to see what happens?

In the end it doesn't matter. Nor do I care. The IRS, FED, etc still exist,  still steal, still deceive. Let me know when the march is to end those criminal organizations.

 

The greatest day for humanity will be when they realize the individual never needed a leader.

Here ya go, this is moar your speed...

"A new effort to diversify schools in the Upper West Side of Manhattan — one of the richest neighborhoods in the city — has drawn an angry reaction from many parents.

Local news station Spectrum News NY 1 has posted a video that shows white parents furiously attacking a plan to require all local middle schools to reserve 25 percent of their seats for students who score below grade level on state English and Math exams."

...NIMBY! ;-)

I made this point, too, but not just for blacks...

He reminds me that by doing for these people what they could and should be doing for themselves, our government is intentionally preventing these, "descendants of slaves," from ever being truly free.  

As Lyndon Johnson supposedly said, "I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for 200 years."

Think about it. Kanye is a MK programmed entertainer. Just like Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes, Katy Perry. Those three all had breakdowns in their programming and came out of unspecified rehab with either a bald head or a very short bleached haircut. So did Kanye.

The Kardashians are the Kardashians. Bruce Jenner. Lamar Odum. Kanye West.

Kanye is doing as he is ordered by his masters.

It is possible there is a power struggle going on among the masters.

Wait for the final act before praising the player. His next act may be a reversal to disgrace those he praises today.

Articles of Confederation. Eff the Republic.

The Confederation Helvetica, aka Switzerland, has three language groups living in harmony, with no Quebecois or La Raza activities.

Once a Republic is created the Republic strengthens itself against who it deems as enemies, foreign or domestic.

The Republic becomes paramount over The People and The States.

The Republic authorized the FED. Instituted Federal taxes on The People's labor. These activities were not the proscribed Duties of the Republic.

The Republic stomps on the Natural Rights of The People against the Bill of Rights.

The Republic involves Americans in foreign wars of oppression.

The Republic became a point of single control over the People and the States. A single point that was easily controlled by a small group of wealthy families.

Wish for something better.

Baby mamas don't educate themselves to get jobs.

Since Democrats, not the religious right, voted in the Great Society, black females have learned that the way to get free stuff is to get knocked up as soon as possible, and have a child with the State as the de facto father. Multiple generations of 15 year old mothers having daughters.

Abortion is fetacide. Murder of an infant in the womb.

Sterilization of the baby mamas is more appropriate. But that would be "racist".

Better to okay murder of the unborn as a natural right of women.

I once wrote a detailed post here arguing that all blacks should be pro life, and anti Planned Parenthood ... PP having cloaked itself in the Woman's Rights movement in order to continue Margaret Sangers original mission of controlling the black population through abortion .... 

But the post was "disappeared" .... must have touched a nerve somewhere ...

"Why should people even care what rappers are tweeting ???"

Don't be silly. This is not about the penetrating brilliance of Kanye's discourse, it's all about the situation. Kanye said things that the scumbag Progressives didn't like, and their heads are exploding and all hell is breaking loose in their psychotic world and they're running around looking for a safe space to stick their stupid evil heads in. 

It's good to point out to people that we should not make too much of it beyond recognizing what I have here explained. 

The practical value is now  we can rub Kanye's intransigence against Progressivism in their faces and make them miserable,  which is what they deserve.

Now, I don't know if this is true or not, but I've heard that blacks have a higher prevalence of the "warrior gene" in their population.  Supposedly, this gene makes them more prone to aggression, be it through high testosterone levels or whatever.  If you're black, and this is true, what then?  Who can teach boys and young men how to control their aggression?  Your fathers, that's who.  Your mothers don't understand what male rage is like.

 

Maybe fixing black families isn't enough to fix the black community, but I guarantee that without that step being taken, black communities will remain broken.

It's a good example in the sense that older males provide discipline/order (sometimes uncompromising but...discipline nonetheless) where just because of simple biology there comes a time in a life span a female just can't. 

There are outliers of course, there are strong, assertive females but by & large it falls to the older males to be "the protectors" of the unit and enforce discipline inside it. 

Now I'm sure that will read as "chauvinistic" but it is what it is.

Now I'm sure that will read as "chauvinistic" but it is what it is.

 

It is called Paternalism, and its close analog is Nationalism.  The Patriarchy is opposed by Frankfurt school cultural communism.  

These Tikkun Olam types want to repair the world, and to do so, the world needs to be remade in their image.  This image is one of "internationalism" and one world order, especially with one world money, and them at the top of pyramid.  

This one world order paradigm requires breaking down the family, and the black family is especially vulnerable.  Young black males can then be used, along with feminism, to prevent a patriarchy from arising. 

A white Patriarchy which codifies nationalism, sovereign money, unique roles for men/women, christian ethos, will be opposed vigorously by our ((friends)).  Our international friends will stir up identity politics and continue to divide/conquer - because that is their evolutionary construct.  It has been working for them for thousands of years.

It is only the very extreme black individual who can see through the deception, and they of course will become a target.

Thank you. I saw that on Nat Geo a few years ago. Out-of-control behavior in young adolescents isn't limited to elephants and humans. The elephant story is a great extrapolation about how animal behavior is modified by the older animals in the group.

The same thing happens with horses. Many horses are no longer kept in herds and can become quite dangerous to work around or handle (I was hired to be the groom for a $250K horse that had ripped open the stomach of another groom, ripped open the neck of a $70K horse while the stallion and other horse were in a horse trailer. The reason that fancy dressage horse was shipped from Europe to the US was because it had killed a groom in Europe). I have seen this behavior in both expensive dressage horses, thoroughbreds, and quarter horses. Basically they go crazy.

Horses are herd animals and the herd modifies the behavior of the others, especially the younger horses. That wasn't the only crazy horse I worked around. A quarterhorse farm had a gelding that was dangerous to handle and be around. Improperly socialized horses are like improperly socialized people: extremely dangerous. Not all of them. But some. Interesting I never really made that connection until now. It freaks me out that I have seen insane horses on three different horse farms in three different parts of the country. None of those horses were allowed to live in a herd which is a horses natural environment. The horses were kept in stalls and separate pastures and paddocks. They were not allowed to be around other horses and in a herd made up of horses of all ages from very young to old.

The article you posted was interesting until the guy started blaming prison on the bad behavior of young men. That is a symptom, not an answer. It is easy to blame prison. This goes back to LBJ and the great society program and welfare. Those programs essentially incentivized bastard children and unmarried women that became pregnant were rewarded for that behavior. Those women were ewarded with medical care, with an income, with food stamps, with housing. The incentive to not have sex, to stay in school, to get married was removed for a large segment of the US population. Bad choices were rewarded not punished. The end result are mobs of out of control youth in every urban center around the world, not just the US.

Colin Flaherty talks about this, Mele Host and Vlad Tepes also talk about this with regard to Europe and Australia. The scenario is the same. The one common factor is that coloreds are excused from bad behavior, now, until that behavior becomes deadly. Even killing someone only results in a short prison sentence in the US, now, and the perp will be out in seven to eight and back on the street. There is something deeper here and it does have to do with IQ and the ability to plan ahead, delay gratification, and control one's emotions and impulses. The colored population doesn't have that innate genetic trait and, for some of us, it is painfully obvious. Especially after a white, Asian, or Mexican family member is killed or scarred by one of these savages. How do you properly socialize a young person that is raised to hate everyone that doesn't look like them and that has a low IQ? You can't.
