Don't Let Big Media Pull Your Strings


Nine years ago, I concluded that the American populace was being herded in a second civil war by the various entities that make up what I call the Organized Left: mainstream media organizations and politicians – mostly, but not exclusively, Democrats -- and, as we’ve discovered of late, online media corporations. I tend to be resistant to repeating myself, but, every day – sometimes even more often – I get confirmation of my old conclusion.

I won’t bother going back over the distortions created by Big Media in the years between 2010 and this year. Two examples from the last two weeks will suffice.

First, we had the Covington/Nathan Phillips/Black Hebrew Israelites racial troika, wherein a teenage boy was savaged by Big Media and by even his own priest without any evidence that the boy had done anything wrong.

And two days ago, Arizona Central, a dogsbody of USA Today, published an opinion piece by someone named Rashaad Thomas -- an op-ed so poorly reasoned and written that some of my acquaintances thought it was satire.
A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party at a downtown Phoenix restaurant. I walked around to view the photographs on the wall. 
Then a photograph caught my attention. 
Friends said, “It’s coal miners at a pub after work.” It was a photograph of coal miners with blackened faces. I asked a Latinx and white woman for their opinion. They said it looked like coal miners at a pub after work. Then they stepped back, frowned and said it’s men in blackface. 
I asked the waitress to speak with a manager. Instead, I spoke with a white restaurant owner. I explained to him why the photograph was offensive. Evidently, someone else had made a similar comment about the photograph before. 
Yet, the photograph remained on the wall. He said he would talk to the other owners and get back to me. While leaving, I asked him had he spoke with the other owners. He had not spoken with them, but mentioned Google said it's coal miners after work. (…) 
The context of the photograph is not the issue.
That last line is how you know that the author of this piece will refuse to see any point of view other than his own. And everything after that line has nothing to do with context or reason. It’s merely the bleating of a child in an adult body who has yet to learn that his feelings are not at the pinnacle of what matters.

But back to my own point. The most important thing about this opinion piece is that USA Today chose to publish it with all of its flaws for the same reasons that I discerned in 2010.
If the Left has been successful at keeping racial grievance in the forefront of black American agenda—in indoctrinating black Americans into believing that retaining racial anger at whites is inherent in being black and essential for black survival--it has also been successful in later years of producing a certain mindset in white Americans. Actually this seems to be two mindsets, but it is really a singular one—a two-headed beast. The first is guilt-fear and the second is unproductive anger. (…) 
The phenomenon of white guilt doesn’t merely mean that many white Americans feel guilty for the actions of pre-[Civil Rights Act] America. It also means that all white Americans must pay for the sins of their fathers and pay for a system from which they are perceived to still be the beneficiaries and to still have advantages over all other Americans simply due to being white. Stemming from that premise, all whites are guilty until proven innocent. (...) 
Individual guilt can be a positive thing: a motivator to get clean and make restitution to the wronged party. (And this Christian asserts that the identity of the wronged party is always the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.) However, when group guilt is the matter at hand, there exists no actual defendant or plaintiff in reality. Under such a fantasy, the "plaintiff" can never be made whole and, obviously, the "defendant" can never be made to pay enough.
At the risk of re-posting my whole series on the topic, I’ll stop there, but, to repeat the point: anger is being ginned up between us, my fellow Americans. Anger and violence.

I saw the anger in the responses to the op-ed – totally justifiable. But, just as the op-ed writer needs to let go of his pointless anger, so do those who are angry at the insult offered to their hard-working coal-miner ancestors. Why? Because it feeds into what the elites – like those who own the USA Today Network – want for this country.

They want this country tearing itself apart in ferocious anger about things that both groups have probably forgotten. I mean, who in 2019 gives a rat’s about “blackface” except for Social Media race warriors, anyway? [UPDATE: Just in time, another blackface controversy.]

Here's the thing about the racial provocations that Big Media has repeatedly offered for our consumptions: if you leave the anger they may provoke unchecked and unexamined, at some point it will burst into rage. That's what the Organized Left is hoping for.

Don't be fooled. Examine yourself and talk with your family,and friends about any emotions produced by what we consume as news. Examine those who intentionally inflame tension between Americans of different colors. and, most importantly, trust in God. He will reveal things to you when you do that.

Don't let the "elites" who run USA Today and its foot soldiers like Rashaad Woods manipulate you.

Don't give them what they want.

Secret About Abortion

Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) signs a bill which legalizes the aborting of an unborn baby who is up to nine months in gestation.
How happy these people are to be able to take all the brakes off the abortion train! How wide are the smiles! But, the happiness etched on these different faces is there for different reasons. And I know why the black woman is smiling.

Consider one Kermit Gosnell, former abortionist and the most prolific (pardon the expression) lone serial killer in recorded history. Gosnell is a former abortionist because he is in prison. Gosnell is also black.

For certain, Gosnell believes that he was doing a great service to humanity and here's why I came to that conclusion:

There is a certain segment of the black American population -- an elite -- that looks down on the majority of blacks and believes that the world would be better off without them. Not too many non-blacks know this.

This elite has existed for a long time and what they think about the vast majority of blacks would make a Klansman blush. (One white person who does know: Anne Rice. She outlined the culture in her excellent, non-vampire novel, The Feast of All Saints.) From Gosnell's courtroom and jailhouse demeanor, I suspect that he is one of these self-styled elites.

It's said that many of his clientele were young black drug addicts and prostitutes. Someone like Gosnell would believe that he was doing the black race a favor by "culling the herd," that is, getting rid of the inferior members of his race. That he didn't even allow his victims the dignity of proper sanitary conditions and that he kept trophies of his youngest victims are just symptoms of his singular psychopathology ... and actually, the former makes sense given what I suspect about Gosnell. Puncturing uteri, over-drugging and passing along diseases through dirty instruments would -- and did -- cause many of the women to become sterile.

I’ve seen this evidence of this mindset expressed in comment sections on left-leaning news sites and blogs. And, years before the Gosnell horror came to light, I was shocked to hear it issue forth from a young black woman at an activist event. This woman said that she was pro-choice because it was cruel to allow children to be born to poor, single women and to drug-addicts. When I tried to counter that neither she nor anyone else could predict the future for a child born under such conditions, she legitimately brought up the odds. I raised the moral issue of murder as prescribed in the Bible, but, predictably, she was an atheist. I was at a loss.

On the aforementioned websites, I’ve seen black women call the pro-life movement racist. The reasoning? Allegedly, pro-lifers only want to save white babies! I was floored by the implication that saving white babies somehow means that pro-lifers are not advocating that non-white babies should be saved as well.

I’ve had a number of years to think about it and what I’ve concluded is this: people will make up all kinds of justifications, even self-contradictory ones, to allow themselves to sleep at night after making certain decisions, especially selfish decisions born (pardon the expression) of irresponsibility -- promiscuity being chief among these. Activists and politicians are merely providing the justification -- for different reasons, to be sure, but with the same outcome. Death.

Improving the race and fighting racism; that’s what these people and others like them have used to justified self-genocide.

So it is that the black woman in the photo is overjoyed that New York state will make it easier to improve the black race. I don’t know. Maybe she thinks black self-extermination is an improvement.

Many of my readers know that I had an abortion when I was a teenager and a miscarriage 13 years later when I was married. All of my children are in Heaven. When I became a Christian, murdering my child was the first thing for which I asked God to forgive me. But, before that, it was something I thought had put behind me and I even justified it to a certain extent.

God got ahold of me and stripped that self-deception away. (By the way, He’s still doing that about other self-righteousness I used to think was okay. That’s what He does for those He loves.)

Self-deception is a curse.

So now you know what the deal is with black democrat politicians and activists like that woman. And you know why black women are murdering their children in droves, at least in New York City. And it’s all happiness, joy and smiles  …

For now.

Why They Blamed the Kid At First

The outrage engendered by the photo of a MAGA-hat-wearing white boy – Nicholas Sandmann -- who smiles while an old Native American man -- Nathan Phillips -- beats a drum in his face reminded me of something that I’ve been observing for a while.

My observation: a significant portion of Americans believes that whites are superior to all non-whites.

Thus did Sandmann's white teenaged male MAGA smile trigger irrational revulsion in the chattering class. Much of that revulsion was directed inward.

I bet this is what they saw.

Case in point for the latter: the initial outrage transcended political boundaries; a number of white male conservatives at the National Review condemned young Sandmann at the onset, showing that -- like a significant portion of the Left -- they, too, believe in the natural superiority and in the blood guiltiness of white men.

And here is further evidence for my overarching opinion: the whole scenario was provoked by the Black Hebrew Israelites (who?), who began this sordid episode of 2019 life by hurling gay and racial epithets at Sandmann and his boy’s school classmates, who are mostly white. And even BHI – ostensibly a black supremacism group – displays its underlying fear of black inferiority in relation to white males by taunting one of the black students among the school boys. They warned him that his classmates would “harvest his organs.”

But there has been little mainstream outrage at BHI for its non-PC behavior. In fairness, I doubt that the BHI members would give a rip if there had been. Mainstream outrage only works on those who care about their mainstream image.

(Side note: there are many groups who want all the benefits of being Jewish/Hebrew/Israelite but want none of the drawbacks.)

To review the players, we have:
  • Black Hebrew Israelite men shouting insults at white boys – and at one black boy among them
  • An American Indian man beating a drum in a white boy’s face, and
  • The white boy smiling and saying nothing in response
  • Mainstream media holding the boys responsible for the whole situation and ascribing no responsibility to black and Native American men.
The only solution to this problem is for you white dudes to abdicate all positions of religious, political, journalistic, familial, etc. power or die. Or both. I suppose that you all could start with the abdication part and let the rest of us run the world.

The end would come a lot quicker, which would be a plus, in my view.

Seriously, we of the darker persuasion are not expected to subscribe to the norms of civilized behavior, because, in the view of the Left and some of the Right, we are genetically incapable of it.  To all too many -- including many, many non-whites -- we are capable only of being victims of whites, even of white children. And non-white men have no moral agency. So they get a pass for behaving like children themselves.

But those who believe this will never admit it -- many not even to themselves.

Link for My Novel Fixed

A pleasant side effect from the attention my last post received is that a few have expressed interest in my 2012 novel, Tale of the Tigers: Love is Not a Game, linked also on the left sidebar. Because of this, I was alerted that the Amazon link was bad; it has now been fixed.

You can get the Kindle version or the paperback version there. By the way, you don't need to own a Kindle to read the e-book. There's a free app.

Musings on Illegal Aliens

Originally posted on Twitter as a thread. Getting a bit of attention.

Since I have one parent who was a legal immigrant to the US and another who is the descendant of African slaves brought to America, people sometimes think they can figure out what I think about illegal aliens.

I'll make it easy for them. I think all illegal aliens should GTFO and go fix their countries of origin. This includes illegal aliens from my father's country.

My father came here via the Mboya Airlift aka the Kennedy Airlift. When my parents divorced and my father's student visa expired, he went back to his country -- Kenya -- to try and fix things. (This was just before Kenya's independence in 1963 and a few years before the Immigration Act of 1965.)

The old man -- and his countrymen -- didn't fix much, but he tried and is still trying. Father is a socialist and was the product of an Old Way of socialist intervention -- one in which existed the presumption that there was an educable remnant among every people group; one capable of creating change in their own countries.

We are seeing the results of the New Way right now.

There are two types of Open Borders advocates and both are operating from two unspoken and separate but related premises:

• One is that illegal aliens who aren't white are genetically incapable of fixing their countries of origin.
• The second is that, because of the first, allowing them to overrun the US will take this country down and make it ripe for a fundamental socialist transformation.

And when I say "overrun," I mean this: no Ellis Island types of checks for infectious diseases; making allowance to function using the languages of origin rather than English; sanctuary cities and states; allowing illegal aliens to get on welfare, get drivers licenses and vote; providing in-state college tuition (whereas an out-of-state citizen or legal immigrant must pay much higher tuition) ...

The list is endless.

In short, when Open Borders advocates play the racism and white supremacism card(s) against those of us who want to see a real wall built on our southern border, they are projecting like a motherfucker.

Can natives of countries south of the US border fix their countries? I bet they could, but they need incentive. I say we should provide one aspect of it: make it very difficult to get into this country illegally and, thereby, away from the messes they and their own ancestors have made.

Like other human beings, some of them will look for other options. And, just as is so with other human beings, those who try to make change within their own countries will be a remnant. That was so for this country.

Most nations don't succeed in making permanent change in the direction of freedom and in the rule of law. But they definitely can't succeed if it is not tried.

So, I say this to both prongs of the Open Borders crowd: I see what you're doing, as do many others. You want to import people *you think* are too inferior to fix their own countries.

And you think that alleged inferiority makes them malleable to a mindset of your choosing.

You believe the same of black Americans, but too many of us see through it, so we were discarded in favor of the prospective new Serf Class.

I, for one, welcome your discard.

Jamiel Shaw II in 2008 and Officer Ronil Singh in 2018 were the recipients of this New Way. One, a natural-born American; the other, a naturalized American -- both were upstanding and law-abiding.

And both were minding their business or handling their business when they were murdered by illegal aliens.

Jamiel Shaw II

Ronil Singh
There are thousands more just like those two young men, but, to me, they are like bookends, representing what the Open Borders crowd had in store for the rest of us, whether we agree with them or not.

But so what if a few Americans get raped and murdered by some of these newbies? So what if a few of the newbies bring in drugs like heroin and fentanyl, killing more Americans? Eggs and omelettes ...

I suspect that socialist omelettes are made with imaginary eggs, but I digress.

A fed-up populace will seek protection from the powerful. Nothing wrong with that. But the Open Borders crowd -- the part seeking to herd us into socialism -- has long tried to back us into the lone corner where socialism is the "only" choice.

That requires that we become cowed and fearful -- afraid of driving or sitting at a bus stop or walking home or jogging or merely sitting in our own homes. That is how many of the dead victims of illegal aliens have met their fates.

Unarmed, of course.

My exhortation: don't fear the Reaper -- nor those who seek the Fundamental Transformation via you and yours being reaped.

Keep pushing. Go down and stand up swinging.

UPDATE: An Instalanche is always a blessing. Thank you, Glenn.

Not Yet Silenced (See Updates at bottom)

All my bills are paid except one: electric. It's a few months behind and I've been keeping it on for a while by giving them something each month when I have it. With your help, I'd like to get it down to zero. $500 will do the trick. And, as I always do when I bleg, I'll stop you when I reach the target amount.

Meanwhile, go and read my post at DaTechGuyBlog from Saturday, Silenced and Broke. It's getting some attention and it's apropos.

UPDATE: 

As of 1:40 PM PT: $135. Thank you, Jon, Phil and Tom!

UPDATE:

As of 2:45 PM PT on 1/8/19: $180. Thank you, James, Laura, Helen, and Kevin!
