The White Devils’ Work

When wokeness means gaslighting:

Asian Americans need to locate anti-Asian violence as part of a pattern of white supremacy… even if perpetrators of violence are people of colour.

No, really.

The strained use of the word locate is, I think, the first warning that horseshit will follow. And what follows includes an exhortation to not “fall back on racist assumptions” – from a man making, and taking pride in, racist assumptions. Such that a white majority population is deemed uniquely oppressive and objectionable, unlike the majorities of other, browner countries, and people can be categorised, pejoratively, as “white” or “white-aligned.” Mr Nguyen, whose words are quoted above, is of course an educator. Shaping young minds.

If the above isn’t sufficiently vivid and perverse, I’ll direct you to this, posted recently, and in which children are apparently expected to pretend similar things, quite hard, and pretend until they believe.

Because, you see, when a black thug assaults and murders a frail 84-year-old Thai man – attacking him, unprovoked, and slamming him into the ground – this can only be because of “white supremacy.” Obviously. The thug in question, Mr Antione Watson, apparently having no agency of his own, and no responsibility, on account of his magic blackness. And that’s why Mr Watson looked so satisfied with himself as he strode away afterwards, leaving a man to die.

To watch the footage linked above and then deduce that Mr Watson, the aggressor, is actually a victim, a mere puppet of Diabolical Whitey And His Infinite Cunning - and that Mr Watson’s malevolence is in fact, somehow, someone else’s fault – is, we’re assured, “intersectional empowerment.”

Update, via the comments:

Another lively young man helpless to resist those “white supremacy” vibrations.

Via Tyler Durden, more hot woke takes. And so, should black thugs rob and assault people of North-East Asian ancestry, the go-to explanation is “the xenophobic policies and racist rhetoric that were pushed forward by the prior administration.” And if your elderly loved one was sucker-punched and killed by a black thug, or beaten to death by a mob of black youths, or thrown from a train platform by a black sociopath, the important thing is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Despite the effect clearly predating its alleged cause, i.e., ORANGE MAN BAD.

Apparently, the phenomenon is nothing whatsoever to do with a mindset such as this one, expressed in song

Please don't tell me that someone suggested that.

Nato should examine how it can power tanks and jets with alternative energy, such as solar panels...

You know they were thinking it...

I was told it was very instrumental drawing attention the horrible conditions in our mental institutions.

I very highly recommend reading "My Brother Ron," which details the history of deinstitutionalization, aka "care in the community." In particular, it talks about the role of leftists (George Szasz) and leftist politics in promulgating these disastrous policies that resulted in the dclosure of mental hospitals and the release of their inmates into society, resulting in the "homeless" problem we have today.

But they did blame Belgium and its colonizing ways--even though Belgium had granted Rwanda its independence decades earlier in (checks duck duck go) 1962.

I'm always amused when apologists for Africa's woeful backwardness cite colonialism as the cause.

The colonial era began around 1870, and ended around 1960, and so was within one (longish) human lifetime. Attributing Africa's dire performance for the preceding half dozen millennia, or the subsequent 60 years, is an exercise in sophistry.

"it talks about the role of leftists (George Szasz)"

Thomas Szasz?

Battlemechs run off of fusion reactors, don't they? Can't think of an energy source greener than that. It's really just a form of super-solar power!

…fusion reactors…Can't think of an energy source greener than that. It's really just a form of super-solar power!

Not to mention the H-bomb...

Cut out out the middleman.

I actually preferred CAV over Alpha Strike, but the latest edition withered on the vine and added in complexity for no particularly good reason. I've been doinking around with Horizon Wars, but it goes too far in the other direction. Units don't really feel distinct.

Where have we see this technique before. Let's see. Why, it's global warming. As Joe sez, "climate change is an existential threat. The time to act is now." If the weather is abnormally cold, it's global warming. If it's abnormally hot, it's global warming. Nothing like having all your bases covered, eh?
