UPDATE 6/16/22: Brainwashing confused, tormented people into believing they’re in the wrong bodies is reaching epidemic levels and is just one more deliberate attack on mental stability in the general population, most specifically among the young. This is just an outpost of Identity Politics, further dividing/alienating people not just from others but from their own most essential nature.
UPDATE 6/12/22: Identity Politics was given life and legs by the so-called “post-racial President,” and Biden has been installed to see that it grows into the permanent civil war it was intended to be.
UPDATE 6/2/22: Lowering standards, bending rules go hand in hand with Identity Politics, and, as practiced with medical standards is bound to result in bad doctors. And medical disasters. One highly respected college Dean finds himself under fire for suggesting that racial minority medical residents performing at a sub-standard level may be….sub-standard residents. And lousy doctors.
5/18/22: The Great Uniter, purportedly on hand in upstate NY to comfort and heal after the Buffalo shooting, has only succeeded in surpassing his own nasty essence fueled by senility. What else to expect from the propped-up figurehead of a fully corrupted Party? Other than advancing an agenda of permanent racial strife and all out civil war, what use do Blacks (or any of the many phony “victim” groups) have for the Dems?
4/25/22: The Walt Disney Company has wandered into a danger zone of brainwashed perplexity, amazed and horrified that their embrace of gender Wokedom has blown up in their face. Such cluelessness is proving to be the characteristic shared universally by those self-styled elites in entertainment and politics dedicated to destroying the way of life that has created their own wealth and power.
UPDATE 4/22/22: To the delight of decent folk, Disney is feeling the consequences of caving to The Woke.
UPDATE 4/16/22: Had the Brooklyn terrorist been White, we’d hear no end to the America-hating rant about White Supremacy and racism. But he’s Black, a profound disappointment to at least one race-baiting pundit. We’ll be lucky if he’s simply locked away for good as one more loon. We certainly won’t hear about his insanity being helped along by the Woke (and false) narrative of a “fundamentally racist” America.
3/31/22: Will on Chris, Black on Black: The Slap heard ’round the ‘hood. What a admirable example for young Inner City Black men prone to assault & kill each other in vast numbers that continue to go studiously ignored by BLM and their fellow occupants of the worldwide Woke asylum. Leave it to the Babylon Bee to provide a solution to this dilemma.
UPDATE 3/28/22: Ketanji Brown Jackson’s ridiculous non-answers to all questions posed are both simple evasion and pandering to the Woke Left manipulators infesting our cultural narrative. Can’t risk offending all those 964 other possible genders with a straightforward answer about “What is a woman?” And certainly can’t pinpoint a real judicial point of view which is one of social engineering judging by her history. Meanwhile, she’s being sold as a pioneer and a genius when she’s just a cookie-cutter black lawyer marinated in Ivy League PC and served cold for immediate consumption.
UPDATE 3/26/22: O the absuridity of it all. The Saga of Ketanji or What They Don’t Teach Affirmative Action Recipients At Harvard. The NY TImes morning editorial tells us the Ketanji Brown Jackson’s interrogators in the Senate are giving us an unfair portrait of her while completely ignoring any mention of her abysmal ignorance of American legal history (Dred Scott) and, more to the point, her inability (or unwillingness) to engage another lawyer (Ted Cruz) in debate about a hypothetical legal issue. You don’t suppose she might ever have to do that as a Supreme Court Justice, would she? Most disturbing is revelation of her place on the board of a private DC school that teaches CRT. This woman is the standard mediocrity mass-produced by newly Woke elite schools of the past few decades, and her pro-American statement now comes off as conniving subterfuge for a bitter, radical outlook.
This is just one more instance of the Affirmative Action curse coming back to embarrass and bite unqualified people like KBJ, fast-tracked to the level of their own incompetence. Does this symbolic showpiece ever face the reality that she is not valued for anything more than being Black and female (and Leftist), her real talents and competence (or lack of) irrelevant?
3/25/22: IDP (Identity Politics) is definitely the place for KBJ (Ketanji Brown Jackson) since she is the focus of national attention entirely due to her racial background and her sex. But don’t ask her to tell you why she’s considered a woman and not a man. She says she’s not a biologist and isn’t qualified to answer such a head scratcher. Tellingly, she didn’t say, “I’m not a psychologist.” We are in Ketanji’s debt for unwittingly admitting what her kindred Wokettes in the Gender Dysphoric wing of Wokedom deny: it IS all about biology, aka science aka reality aka the objective truth, NOT what you or I think it might or should be.
It’s bad enough she doesn’t know the difference between boys and girls (which she does), but when you’re auditioning for the Supreme Court, it’s not a bad idea to be acquainted with at least the basics of American legal history (the Dred Scott decision), particularly as it relates directly to civil rights.
UPDATE 3/24/22: Unfortunately, the latest Supreme Court nominee’s grilling falls under the category of Identity Politics, having absolutely NOTHING to do with putting the best, most qualified people into high governmental positions. Of singular interest to those running this circus is that she’s female and Black. To her credit, she does admit her own life achievements are a testament to American opportunity. Does this REALLY square with her overall view of things as expressed through her judicial rulings? It is probably too much to hope that she rises or falls based on a record of judicial impartiality, not radical politics.
UPDATE 3/16/22: There is a real war on The Science, and it is a cult-like cancer that goes by the name of Identity Politics. As evidenced by recently revised, guilt-ridden mission statements, innumerable strains of the Woke virus (CRT, Gender Equality, etc) have entered the bloodstream of our major medical and scientific bodies, turning science and the pursuit of truth into tools of a political agenda.
UPDATE 2/25/22: Biden, beholden to the antiracist racists, has nominated a Black female as promised for the Supreme Court, eliminating all those women and men who just don’t check the right boxes and intersect properly. How flattering for the nominee to be picked because she is the right color and sex for the moment, not necessarily great at her job? How great for the country and the stature of the Supreme Court? Black, female, dumb, mean, incompetent? You’re 99% there, baby.
UPDATE 2/18/22: A totally qualified albeit personally unpleasant scientist with a successful record of running an important government agency has been tossed out the window because some women got their feelings hurt. Inevitably, he will be replaced by someone whose major qualifications will be not professional experience & expertise but skin color and/or sexual proclivities. And, of the utmost importance, a generally Woke outlook on things. Not exactly the keys to any successful operation.
UPDATE 2/13/22: As “anti-fascists” have proven to be the worst fascists over a century, so the new “anti-racists” are pushing race war and segregation. They are quite simply the worst sorts of racists.
UPDATE 2/10/22: In response to one more heavily funded scholarship in the name of George Floyd, Minnesota college alums restate the obvious about who that pathetic, drug-soused loser was and take their philanthropy elsewhere. One small but welcome step away from the “Race Crazy” Left’s takeover of our national outlook on liberty, equality, responsibility, being fundamentally American, being a decent citizen.
UPDATE 2/4/22: Attractive and rational Dem up-and-comer Tulsi Gabbard has choice words for Brandon on the disastrous use of ID Politics pandering in place of merit, citing Kackling Kalamity as Exhibit A.
UPDATE 2/4/22: Poor Whoops has really flunked Rudimentary Racism I. Nazis? Jews? Race driven? Uh, yeah. That’s what you get from people who are so race-obsessed and driven uncontrollably to wild virtue-signaling over ID politics at every opportunity. The final word on WhoopiGate. Turns out she’s just dumb, not evil.
UPDATE 2/1/22: The View’s Whoopi Goldberg has just turned herself inside out, exposing her own self-serving brand of racism now so common among Black Leftists and their sympathizers. According to her recent display of wise compassion, the only real racism is that inflicted on multi-millionaire, ultra-privileged Blacks like herself due some reparations. Meanwhile, regarding that little dust-up between Jews and Nazis about 80 years ago: “The Holocaust isn’t about race. No. It’s not about race….This is White people doing it to White people. So, this is y’all go fight amongst yourselves.”
In other words, the only REAL racism of concern is against Blacks, and antisemitism just doesn’t compare. Aside from threats of losing her career (which isn’t going to happen as it did to others like Roseann), someone might bring the former Caryn Johnson (a Karen by any other name is just as obnoxious) up on charges of cultural appropriation, stealing that very Jewish last name.
UPDATE 1/31/22: Wanted: race hustlers interested in raking in huge amounts of money for no reason other than to spend it on fancy houses and lavish vacations for themselves. Special perks include being praised as Social Justice Warriors without benefiting a soul except themselves. A good business to be in, but the IRS is not fully on board.
UPDATE 1/6/22: Speaking the truth these days about the destruction wrought by BLM and its violent ilk will get you fired in Woke territory. In this case, an honest, objective statistician at Reuters news service has found himself terminated when criticizing the company narrative embracing the burning of cities and destruction of Black lives and businesses.
UPDATE 11/22/21: V.D. Hanson makes the fascinating (and chilling) observation that the New South has become the Old North and the New North is now looking like the Old South.
…and depending upon who your governor is….
UPDATE 11/5/21: That the elections in Viriginia of Winsome Sears (Black, female) and Jason Miyares (Hispanic) has drawn barely an atom of attention let alone celebration from the MSM only proves once again that ID politics is not about improving life for whatever victim group-of-the-week but solely about advancing Leftism.
Being ignored is the least of it when media Leftists desperately resort to calling Sears “a Black mouth” for “White Supremacist practices.” Politically independent and expressing her own negative opinion of CRT has elicited similar sputtering contempt from another MSM stooge for Condi Rice.
We know the Left hates conservatives, but a special hatred is reserved for those “victims” who refuse to play victim. The only good (FILL IN THE BLANK) is a Leftist (FILL IN THE BLANK). And the only solution for a (FILL IN THE BLANK) who refuses to be the (FILL IN THE BLANK) mouth for Leftist practices is a silenced or, better yet, dead (FILL IN THE BLANK).
UPDATE 10/27/21: An excellent man-on-the-street video from Florida isn’t just contemptuous hand-wringing about how stupid young people are but beautifully demonstrates how simple, calm logic can suddenly enlighten them. In this case, it’s about quotas and “diversity.” When confronted with who they want playing on their basketball team (or flying the plane), people suddenly realize merit/skill/competence trumps all ID Politics diversity.
UPDATE 10/17/21: There is no conflict of interest or even hypocrisy in the world view of Leftists. However and whatever they do to impose their “just,” “equitable” point of view (and prerequisite force & controls on the unwilling) is acceptable. After all, they are “on the right side of history” which is always the Marxist/utopian vision of top-down Master Planning.
So, no surprise that Attorney General Garland, chief law enforcer and knee capper for the Biden Mafia, has targeted American parents resistant to CRT propaganda as “domestic terrorists.” After all, his son-in-law’s company, Panorama backed by Facebook’s Zuckerberg, has a multi-million dollar contract with 23,000 public schools nationwide distributing CRT propaganda. How could concepts like “conflict of interest” or “hypocrisy” apply or deter him and his relatives when their causes of “racial justice” and “equity” are so nobly Woke...and there’s so much money to be made. Profits? Money? Anti-capitalism? Income equality? All in perfect harmony when some animals are more equal than other animals.
UPDATE 10/9/21: Permanently incited civil war in a variety of forms and guises is the means; socialism is the goal. United we stand, divided we fall. And the Left no longer feels the need to hide its destructive intentions.
UPDATE 10/7/21: Can it be that once impeccable charity organization, the Salvation Army, has gone Woke and confessed publicly that there is “little doubt as to whether racism has impacted The Salvation Army in policy and practice?” Yes, it can be. Another sad instance of the Left’s reverse Midas touch as bluntly described by our real President.
UPDATE 10/1/21: Upcoming Columbus Day offers a fresh new stir of the racial pot, heavily seasoned with lies, distortions and convenient deletions that comprise the main ingredients of the now-standard Woke narrative. That meme is that Chris was just the first of a horrible, unbroken line of White sadists & murderers leading up to the present who exist only to wage fulltime mayhem and destruction on the non-White American population.
UPDATE 9/16/21: Biden’s medical apartheid-pitting the vaccinated against the Deplorable UnVaccinated-is just one more outpost of Identity Politics and Critical Race Theory, all designed to create permanent civil war, chaos justifying totalitarian crackdown.
UPDATE 9/10/21: Larry Elder is running for the California governorship and for his trouble had eggs thrown at him by a White creep in a gorilla mask. This would be world headlines and grist for the media mill over weeks of outraged round tables and angry editorials deploring American racism IF….he were a Leftwing Democrat, BLM activist or the next serial criminal offender turned international celebrity/martyr involved in a hyper-publicized altercation with law enforcement. As once again evidenced, the Left’s Identity Politics has nothing to do with righting wrongs against genuine victims and everything to do with advancing the Leftist agenda.
UPDATE 8/30/21: Larry Elder, a prominent Black conservative, has a chance to unseat Gavin Newsom in the California Governor’s race. So, naturally the usual suspects are pulling out every slime and slander (and voting fraud) they normally use on White conservatives, portraying Elder as an Uncle Tom racist White supremacist tool, yada yada yada. All they’re accomplishing is giving lie to their persistent claim that Identity Politics is about helping Blacks or Gays or Women or The Poor or whatever Victim-Of-The-Moment. The Left never helps the victimized group it claims to champion but only exploits it to advance Leftism.
UPDATE 8/11/21: The permanent civil war of ID Politics, the Left’s reliable road to the absolute control it seeks, now includes the manufactured strife implemented between the Vaxed & Unvaxed.
UPDATE 7/17/21: Class is now passe as a talking point of Marxist subversion and division. After all, some of the loudest spokesoids for revolution are billionaires. So, let’s make the rich/poor thing irrelevant while white/black, LGQBTWTF/straight is now a matter of existential urgency.
Save history, save our roots, Get rid of CRT. Taking poison or forcing others to take it is not covered under any rational definition of free speech.
UPDATE 7/7/21: Ground Zero of the ID Politics virus and Obama’s injecting of it full blast into the American bloodstream can be sited at the moment the so-called post-racial POTUS said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.” Here was the first in a string of young, mostly male Black criminals magically morphed into martyrs readymade for Leftist agitprop. In the ensuing dozen years, we have a new race war raging as a consequence of that deliberately subversive narrative.
UPDATE 7/6/21: It’s a good omen when someone on the Woke side gets fed up with the insanity about the evil of All Things White.. Time will tell if more Left-leaning libertarians like Bill Maher really recognize the direct connection between the lunatics running the cultural asylum and the political one. Perhaps they are one and the same.
UPDATE 7/2/21: A simple and clear description of the Leftist/Democrat Master Plan history: divide the races and sexes just as Marx suggested dividing people by class. Then establish Whiteness and Maleness as existential crimes! Let’s hear it for the Party that has united and healed us all!
UPDATE 6/4/21: “Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure.” No, that’s not just Abraham Lincoln at 1863 Gettysburg. It’s every concerned American today, contemplating the consequences of the prevailing Identity Politics put in place and now carried out to keep us permanently at one another’s throats.
We are living out The Hunger Games” and Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm, the dystopian nightmare of centralized control by the totalitarian few over the many kept in place by making all family and social life a chaotic cauldron of fear and suspicion. Dickens provides the bookend to Lincoln’s timely quote: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
UPDATE 3/28/21: Obama’s Legacy of Permanent Civil War (aka ID Politics) coupled with dissociative thinking updates. Woke Ivy League outpost formerly known as Columbia University now has separate, segregated graduation ceremonies for various blocs of The Victimized. Soon to assume prominence on the cultural scene: gender-fluid Mermaid Lives Matter. And as a San Francisco high school scraps merit-based admission in favor of an open lottery, excitement grows among eager short White near-sighted nerds as rumor has it that the NBA may consider a similar hiring policy. Or not, if ticket sales lag.
ORIGINAL POST 11/18/18: The American electorate hath spoken, and an unfortunately large segment of it has chosen again to give socialism one more chance.
So the parasite Left will continue to ride on like a blood-engorged tick desperately stuck to the back of its reviled MAGA host, sucking life from the industrious,creative and prosperous. To its own detriment, of course. Killing the Golden Goose & all that. After all, who really needs whom?
Flawed human nature being what it is, this suicidal farce will continue as long as deluded people are encouraged to join The Permanently Victimized (aka the Dem/Prog/ID Politics Left) …and choose never to become winners, individuals.
Kindly reminder: there would simply be no Left without ID politics. It’s taken the place of the original Marxist rich/poor dialectic. Poverty is potentially temporary, the sort of progress that makes the theory of permanent class warfare irrelevant. Being Black/Brown/Yellow/Colored/Gay/Trans/ is forever! Now you can get as fat & rich as your Capitalist “masters” all the while continuing to Hate The Man AND collect reparations (money & prostrate apologies)! Unto perpetuity! A pitiful Victim For Life!
Beat that deal!
