Days Black People Not Re-Enslaved By Trump

They Don't Speak For Me

Why is it that whites and white looking people on the left feel that they have a right to speak on behalf on black people everywhere?
When we kneel in shul once a year on Yom Kippur we feel vulnerable. That’s how African Americans feel every day.
No. I do not "feel vulnerable every day". What kind of phobic moron would I be to feel vulnerable every day? This is such an insult to African-Americans.
And we Jews still aren’t doing enough to dismantle the American race privilege that we benefit from
Now this I agree with. I think Jews should remove themselves from their over-representation in media and finance for starters. That would be a most excellent start.
is there a fitting expression of solidarity that the Jewish community could make with the athletes that Trump has targeted?
Yes. Shut the fuck up. And if you can't do that at least tell the truth.
In other words, it often means something has gone terribly wrong.
Yes something has gone terribly wrong. I don't think you quite understand what it is though.
African-Americans don’t need to bow in shul to feel vulnerable to danger. To be black in America is to feel danger not just once a year, but all year, every year.
Really? Danger of what? From whom?
We need to acknowledge that we benefit from institutions, from schools to banks to workplaces to courtrooms to jails - that are stacked against African Americans.
Institutions like banks and media conglomerates....
Which means that they give unearned privilege to white people. Yes, even white Jews.
Glad for you to admit that. Jesus said something about rods, motes and eyes.

A Weekend Of Narratives

This weekend was a weekend of narratives. Two events happened this weekend that stood in stark contrast to each other. There were football games where players either refused to exit locker rooms for the US national anthem or got on field and made some show of protest. On the other hand was the Tunnel To Towers run in NYC where people of all types paid to run in honor of first responders who died on 9-11 and for first responders who serve communities from NYC to London, England. This morning when watching GMA, the former got all the air time and the latter were invisible.

To the brass (and presenters) of GMA, millionaire (at least in income) players of a game who's entire purpose is entertainment who are taking a knee over a completely fake narrative of black oppression in America is of more importance than thousands of ordinary citizens, most of whom have 5 figure salaries who paid for the honor of running in honor of those who serve the country and community daily and who are paid a small fraction of the salaries of the protesting NFL players.

Just let that sink in for a minute.

And understand that these protests are entirely contrived and entirely without merit. We know for a fact that the greatest danger to black lives are other black people. We know for a fact that the police use more force against white persons than black persons. We know for a fact that police officers, black and white, are more hesitant to use force against black suspects than white ones. We know that 9 times out of 10, when a deadly encounter happens between a police officer and a black suspect that the black suspect was at a minimum not following orders, actively trying to flee lawful apprehension or trying to kill an officer. I cannot understand how people in the black community feel that it is in their interest to support those who predate on our communities, making them unsafe and making suspects out of law abiding citizens.

Yes, Every time some black person, usually male, decides to assault or kill someone (which in NYC is the case in 90+% of assaults and murders), it makes every other black person in the community a suspect. You can't be mad at police for following up on a murder that involves a black male and then get mad when random black males are stopped and questioned. You don't worry about cats when it's the dogs that are doing the biting. So black folks need to be mad at black folks doing crime and the people that encourage and enable these persons to continue to predate on our community members. Recently where I grew up we have had a spate of car break ins and house break in's. Not a single mother fucker doing these crimes are white. Not a single one is a police officer and I'm supposed to be mad at white folks and police?

Fuck that in it's entirety.

I saw a photo somewhere which compared the NFL (and I suppose NBA) players to Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson broke "barriers". What barriers are these player breaking? What civil rights don't black people have in America? List the specific civil rights that black people in America do not have. You can't name one because this isn't 1960. It's 2017 and black people can actually now get away with violating the civil rights of other citizens and the media (and DNC) will cover for them.

These athletes aren't brave. Not a single one of these highly paid athletes will risk their lives and head to Chicago (or other city with high levels of black on black murders) and confront the people committing those murders. Not. A. Single. One. They will go to Miami Beach and party. They will go to LA and NY and shop. They might go to Monaco or wherever else and show off, but when 500 people are shot in Miami they don't have SHIT. To. Say. They are cowards. Each and every one of them. And all these news casters acting like they are so concerned. Those ones on GMA who live in high rises on the upper West Side (Robin Roberts), Who live in New Jersey (Strayhan) and down the Jersey shore, Long Island or Connecticut. None of these people who are nodding their heads and tut-tutting Trump live anywhere near the same people their money and status allow them to not. Live. Near.

Hypocrites, each and every one of them.

And then, then, we have the Sudanese guy who shoots up a church. This went entirely uncommented on for the first 30 minutes of GMA this morning (I had to go to work). When Dylan Roof shot up a church bible study meeting in Charleston, there was back to back coverage. The silence was deafening this AM. I thought shooting up a church was the evilest of evilest things a person could do in America. I've essentially cut myself off from broadcast TV as I'm tired of wasting my time on propaganda. This is CNN's home page right now:

Here's the Washington Post:

Here's the NYTimes:

A church was shot up and the lead everywhere are highly paid athletes.

If by now you don't understand the power of The Narrative and how there is a concerted effort to keep certain things out of view, then you are beyond help. When [mostly] black athletes are paid high 6 figures to millions for entertainment can honestly stand up (or kneel) and talk about how they (or at least black people) are oppressed in 2017 America, when these athletes owe their livelihoods to the fact that they are in America and are not oppressed (cause actual oppressed people don't make millions) and it's "hateful" to point that shit out, you know that all semblance of sanity has left the building and exited the parking lot.

The owners aren't going to discipline OR fire players because they depend on these players for their income. Understand that only if the owner's income streams are threatened will they do anything. These same owners disciplined players for 9-11 commemorations:

Williamson was going to wear custom patriotic cleats during the Titans’ home opener against the Vikings on Sunday, the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but those plans changed when a league representative called to inform him about a looming fine for violating uniform code...

In August, the league prohibited the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a helmet sticker honoring local police.

Last season, the NFL fined two Pittsburgh Steelers players $5,787 each for first-offense uniform violations –running back DeAngelo Williams for wearing "Find the Cure" in his eye black to promote breast cancer awareness, and cornerback William Gay for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness about domestic violence.

The New York Giants' Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz plan to wear patriotic cleats in Sunday's game against the Cowboys. The Tennessean has reached out to the NFL for comment on whether these players have received special permission or are simply willing to pay the fine.

So let's be clear. The NFL owners are not about free speech. They are not about athletes making 1st Amendment political statements. The NFL owners are scared shitless that their black players will accuse them of being racist and them getting the Donald Sterling treatment. They cannot afford to fire their players because then they will have no one to play and therefore no income.

And they think that their audience is sufficiently SJW that they need to pander to this bullshit. If they find that the fans are not having it, which will only come about when there are empty seats and record low levels of viewership, then they will change their tune.

Regardless though, this weekend has show us all, in no uncertain terms what narratives are in play.

The Hypocrisy Test

With so much being discussed about DACA, I often see that people have "misalignments" between what they think about their personal (immediate) property and family and their nation and fellow citizens. Below is a test to see how you rank on the hypocrisy scale.

Answer Yes or No to the following questions:

Personal:

1) In my house (place of dwelling) I determine who can and cannot enter.

2) In my house (place of dwelling) I ultimately determine if and when it is time for non-residents to leave.

3) If I came home and discovered someone in my house (place of dwelling) who did not belong there, I would expect them to leave.

3a) I would expect that I could call the authorities to make sure said person left if they did not comply with my demand.

3b) I would expect recompense for anything said person may have broken during their "stay".

3c) I would expect the authorities, if called upon, to punish said offender under relevant law.

3d) I agree with laws against trespass against personal property.

4) If a visitor to my house (place of dwelling) does something that threatens or otherwise makes any member of my family uncomfortable, I reserve the right to have that person removed from my house (place of dwelling).

4a) If that person refuses to leave, I reserve the right to call upon the authorities to remove the person.

5) Strangers have the right to enter my property whenever they please regardless of how I feel about it.

6) Strangers have the right to partake of the food in my house whenever they please regardless of how I feel about it.

7) I have waited in line and brought all proper paperwork to rent a property. I expect others to do the same.

8) I am going on a cruise with my family. I paid for my room. It is fair that the cruise ship allows a stow away to be placed in my cabin with my family.

National:

1)In my country I (the citizens) determine who can and cannot enter.

2)In my country I (the citizen) ultimately determine if and when it is time for non-residents to leave.

3)If I discovered someone in my country who did not belong there, I would expect them to leave.

3a) I would expect that I could call the authorities to make sure said person left if they did not comply with my demand.

3b) I would expect recompense for anything said person may have broken during their "stay".

3c) I would expect the authorities, if called upon, to punish said offender under relevant law.

3d) I agree with laws against trespass against illegally entering the country.

4) If a visitor to my country does something that threatens or otherwise makes any citizen uncomfortable, I (the citizen) reserve the right to have that person removed from my country.

4a) If that person refuses to leave, I reserve the right to call upon the authorities to remove the person.

5) Strangers have the right to enter my country whenever they please regardless of how I (the citizen) feel about it.

6) Strangers have the right to partake of the [goods and services provided by my government] whenever they please regardless of how I (the citizen) feel about it.

7) I paid all my taxes and got my paperwork per the law. I expect others to do the same.

Scoring: for the Personal give yourself 1 point for answers as follows:

1-4a: Yes
5-6: No
7: Yes
8: No

For total of 13 points. Subtract 1 point for every answer not matching above.

For the National give yourself 1 point for answers as follows:

1-4a: Yes
5-6: No
7: Yes

For a total of 12 points. Subtract 1 point for every answer not matching above.

Now add the two scores.

Tally:

25: You are a consistent person.

Less than 25: You have a contradiction somewhere you might want to check.

13: You are a hypocrite of epic proportions.

Less than 13: You probably stumbled upon this blog by accident, perhaps the "feeling lucky" link in the Google search page. You simply cannot be serious.

General Moral:

The nation is an extension of the personal. National rules generally reflect the culture and expectations of the people. If you don't expect people to enter your home willy nilly, then you cannot at the same time be OK with people entering the country willy nilly. Your national politics should largely reflect what you expect in your personal behavior and expectations.

Michael Bennett: Epic Liar

This morning I saw a report on GMA where Michael Bennett lied about his arrest in Las Vegas. The report on GMA was so biased I couldn't believe it was allowed to air. There wasn't even a "lets see what the police have to say" part. Bennett did his crocodile tears bullshit as he spoke of not being able to see his daughters:
"The Officers' excessive use of force was unbearable," Bennett wrote. "I felt helpless as I lay there on the ground handcuffed facing the real-life threat of being killed. All I could think of was 'I'm going to die for no other reason than I am black and my skin color is somehow a threat.'"

Bennett told reporters Wednesday that during the incident he was thinking about his wife and three daughters "and how much they mean to me."

Of course, as is now unfortunately typical, the video evidence proved otherwise:

All those black people the police could have up and decided to arrest but didn't. How does Bennett explain this? How does ESPN and ABCNews meaning Disney corp. explain giving this liar a platform? The story headline should not have been:

Michael Bennett: Cops drew guns on me for 'being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time' It should have been:

Michael Bennett lies about LVPD while trying to make racial commentary.

This is the new Left Crow. This is the real "white supremacy": It is where white liberals make space for and promote black people being treated like children and not made to account for their behavior and words and those who object are made to be non-persons subject to RICO levels of civil rights violations and criminal violence.

Republican Plantation Revealed Again

Back in July I posted about how the Republican party is a plantation for white [conservative] people similar to how the DNC is a plantation for black people:
If anything shows how the RNC is basically a plantation for white folks, it is the failure to repeal the ACA. Whether you agree with repealing the ACA or not is not important. What is important is that the RNC spent most of the Obama administration discussing and declaring how the ACA needed to be repealed and replaced with something "better" (IMO anything not single payer for a "basic level" of coverage with a free market for anything else is not "better"). They campaigned on it. They have governors sue the govt. They got a "conservative" supreme court justice to declare a penalty a tax, in clear contradiction to the actual text. But then against massive odds Trump became president.
The Republicans say whatever they think will make the gullible white people who are not aligned with the DNC to vote for them and then once [back] in office, continue to be the right wing of the DNC, where they believe in what the DNC believed in yesterday. Our most recent "revelation", at least for those not paying attention, was the Republican response to Trump's DACA kinda-sorta- repeal.

We already knew that DACA was unconstitutional. For that reason alone, both Dems and Republicans should be shoulder to shoulder against that program. They are not. While we fully expect the DNC to be the traitor party that it is, we see how low the RNC has fallen, in which its members, who are supposed to be representatives of actual US Citizens, lining up to represent the interests of foreign nationals.

When you have half of the people in government (conservative estimate) working on behalf of foreign nationals you have an occupation government. However; how many of these persons who have publicly declared themselves agents of foreign nationals will be returned to their seats after the next election?

I have little sympathy for the DACA folks. They are the victims of government officials that refused to do their duties. Their parents should have been deported a long time ago. Had that happened these DACA folk would have been in their home countries a long time ago with their families. The fact that government officials (across party lines) failed in their duties and in many cases have broken immigration law and no prosecutions happened (and continue to NOT happen) is a slap in the face of every citizen (and legal immigrant) who finds themselves looking for proof of identity when they open bank accounts, purchase cars, get drivers licenses and the like, all following the laws and expecting those same laws to be applied to everyone else.

It is a slap in the face of people who for decades paid property taxes into school systems for their children and grandchildren to have funds diverted for bilingual education for children who should not even be in the classrooms. For expanded classrooms that decreases per-pupil teaching time. For monies that are spent on school meal programs for children who should not be in the school and should not be on federal food programs to begin with. A slap in the face of citizens who face water shortages due to overpopulation. The wages that are depressed, the jobs that are no longer available (automation notwithstanding).

These agents of foreign nationals, calling themselves Republicans don't care about you or your "rights" Mr. white man. All they want from you is the product of your labour and your "obligatory" vote come election day. If you comply with the latter (since the former is not exactly voluntary) you are signaling that you like the plantation very much.
