Which is why, to a certain extent, it doesn’t really matter who gets to sit in the Big Chair for the next four years next week. The damage is done, and there seems no way of eradicating the Progressive Virus, even if we manage to eradicate COVID...

Mike

If the above suggests the outpourings of monomaniacal bedlamites with dubious intentions,

If?

David

If?

Well, I’m assuming that parents won’t generally appreciate their children being encouraged to believe that being white is proof of some innate depravity, that bourgeois values are something to “smash,” and that looting and rioting are, like, totally groovy.

TDK

"I’m assuming that parents won’t generally appreciate their children"

I'm not convinced that most parents would disapprove. Most people I talk to about this remain ignorant of the detail and tend to think of this in terms of the activists are inheriting the movements of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. At worst they perceive youthful excesses which they balance off against mythical white supremacists which they read about in their newspapers and watch on TV.

I once thought the bald fact of them reversing Martin Luther King's injunction to judge on the content of character not the colour of skin, would make anyone decent pause for thought, but it's not enough.

"There is a profound level of fear inherent in white people"

If they have kids in an Ohio public school they *should* be afraid.

Sam

If you keep in mind that these talentless bigots can only project their failings then reading this claptrap is all the more terrifying.

Sort-Of-Mad Max

“White People Have No Culture.” Special guest host for this segment will be famous rapper/activist DJ Schmuzy D'GangBangus performing his hit 'Yo Mo Fo Mama's Big Hairy Whoopcake Makes Muh Eyeballz Bleed!'

No culture. White people. Always gets a snort from me.

David

The author of the article White People Have No Culture is Lorena Jasis-Wallace. When not writing articles that appear to be the result of a serious mental health issue, Ms Jasis-Wallace is a “co-facilitator of ‘Interrupting Oppression’ workshops.” Inevitably, she “tends towards a social justice lens in all areas of her work.” Also inevitably, she lives in Portland, Oregon.

Sam

Also inevitably, she lives in Portland, Oregon.

This is why I’m against Trump’s Wall. What’s the point when the biggest threat already resides within our borders?

Mike

"Call out the bullshit when you see it, in yourself and in others." From the "CULTURE OF DEATH"

I think I'll take your advice, Bullshit, lady.

John Chittick

With History, Civics and Geography now non existent, sure, why not skip directly to cultural Marxism in the curriculum. The foundation for nihilism is already well "constructed". And yet, conservatives still support the fallacy of centrally planned public education ignoring the fact that control of it is always just an election away.

Dr Evil

If these looters continue I expect in some cities the National Guard or the Army will be drafted in with orders to shoot looters. Perhaps next week after President Trump is re-elected?

Woke racism is as repellent as the non- (un-? pre-? ante-?) woke version.

It gives us something to put them on the other side of.

Moar Oregon

It's like Oregon has taken the peak stupidity in California as a personal challenge.

I foresee no problems with this brilliant* idea:

You’re going to need more walls.

Darleen

Holy frijoles ... what? They looked at California's steep rise in crime and places San Francisco and said "Brilliant! Let's do what they're doing!"

Captain Nemo

You’re going to need more walls.

I'm British, but yes. Our cousins across the pond are going to need some very high walls indeed.

Clazy

I'm tempted to regard the race peddlers as parasites inhabiting a body politic gone soft, but the metaphor seems a bit Hitlerian.

NTSOG

Aelfheld: "It gives us something to put them on the other side of."

I beg to differ: walls are also made for the standing of people against so the bullets don't hurt innocent bystanders.


[As the year has progressed I am feeling less and less tolerant about the rise of the idiots and what 'medicine' they need.]

While we laugh about the idiocy over the pond let’s not lose sight of the relatively subtle (two words being pushed right to their limits these days) attacks on our own country like this report by our tireless Olympic flag-bearer.

David

Clazy, it’s been a while.

David

Which reminds me, has anyone seen Dicentra lately?

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Nothing says it can't be extended north along I-5 to separate the mostly normal CA, OR, WA to the east from the stark raving bonkers loons to the west. While we are at it we can do the same with I-95 north from Norfolk to keep out the eejits to the east, and while we are at it, straight across Florida somewhere just south of Apalachicola.

When I see this and when I then read about the Girls Scouts of America taking down a tweet that congratulated ACB on her elevation to the Supreme Court because transwomen were offended by it, I do believe that White women are more at risk to becoming “unpeople “ than White men. I mean, the patriarchy still needs to be smashed and all, but at least they get to keep their gender.

pst314

Which reminds me, has anyone seen Dicentra lately?

All I know is that her Twitter feed has gone protected. :-(

Squires

...insofar as “white people” have any culture at all, it is merely one “of colonisation, of genocide, of taking,” in which “envy and fear” are defining features.

To state the obvious, “Narcissists project.”

Clazy

A STARTER pack? What is to follow?

Perhaps a lesson plan on "Delegitimizing classroom indoctrination".

David

A STARTER pack?

Oh, once you’ve touched the stuff, you’re always on the mailing list. And there is no ‘unsubscribe’ button.

Dirt berms are better. Fewer ricochets.

Darleen

We follow each other (I've sent a DM, let's see if she's monitoring her account) ... I see her last activity on it was in June. Her flicker account has no new images since last December.

Darleen

When I see this and when I then read about the Girls Scouts of America taking down a tweet that congratulated ACB on her elevation to the Supreme Court because transwomen were offended by it,

Huh? AFAIK the shrieking WE ARE OFFENDED group was about daring to honor Amy Coney Barrett who the left consider little more than a creature yanked out of The Handmaid's Tale and illegitimately put on the Supreme Court by not-their-president OrangeManBad.

What did I miss?

Darleen

Ruh roh ...

David

The spam filter’s being capricious again. If anyone has trouble with comments not appearing, email me (top left) and I’ll rattle the damn thing.

Darleen

I heard from dicentra - she's taking a break from social media cuz of all the cray cray. Maybe back next year.

David

I heard from dicentra

Thanks, Darleen.

Please convey best wishes from all who miss her.

David

That.

Darleen

Please convey best wishes from all who miss her.

Have done so and she appreciates it. :)
