Reverse Discrimination

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (link)

This act, signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on July 2, 1964, prohibited discrimination in public places, provided for the integration of schools and other public facilities, and made employment discrimination illegal. This document was the most sweeping civil rights legislation since Reconstruction.

Here we are, in our ultra-modern, colorblind society, 52 years later…

USC ‘Segregated’ Dorms?

“No white people allowed:” The Power of a Separate Space (The Crimson)

What’s good for thee, but not for me?

This BLM nonsense (and it’s additional illegitimate spawn) have ’empowered’ persons of color to take back the power they somehow missed, and do their own thing.

I see this as an extension of the street wisdom of ‘whitey don’t know anything – we must find our own way’, complete with no basic understanding of language, history or culture. (Ebonics, the 3/5 compromise, etc.)  Making well-meaning but ignorant folks easily manipulated (Lenin’s Useful Idiots, again).

Just as the Fabians, the communists, Saul Alinsky and many others planned!

And they have their willing accomplices in the media and government fueling the fires!  And approving illegal, segregated activity.

It’s back-of-the-bus for YOU, whitey!

Hasn’t anyone learned anything?

“An Unaware And Compliant Citizenry”

No, this is NOT a heretofore undiscovered John D. MacDonald Travis McGee novel!

from Wirecutter:

“an unaware and compliant citizenry”

A Clinton campaign email released as part of the Wikileaks data dump earlier today talks about the need to maintain political power by producing “an unaware and compliant citizenry”.
The email was sent to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta by former Clinton administration official Bill Ivey on March 13, 2016.

Yeah, THAT’S the only way Secretary Clinton can maintain political power!  Unawareness and compliance.

Because, if she had illicit power, the aware and uncompliant would take it from her!

GRRR!

Yep. I’ve Stopped Invoking Captain Renault*

(from Free North Carolina)

The #BlackLivesMatter movement is not a movement against institutionalized racism in America. It cannot be, because institutionalized racism in America, for the most part, doesn’t exist. We have a black president (notice I didn’t say African-American), our schools are integrated, our military is integrated and opportunity abounds for those who seize it in this country.

No, BLM is simply a front for a Marxist takeover and destruction of what made this country great — freedom and individual responsibility. It is a threat from within. It is seditious garbage. It is Marxism pure and simple. The movement is being funded from outside and the youth of our country are being manipulated and brainwashed.

Most of the “protesters” in Charlotte were from out of state and paid from outside.

Community organizers or outside agitators?  What’s in a name?

For Those Not In ‘The Loop’…

I’ve posted regarding the pollution, takeover, perversion ad infinitum ad nauseum of the Democratic Party (and other traditional movements, like the NAACP) by the progressives, socialists, communists, leftists, Marxists (whatever they’re calling themselves this week) many times.

But Free North Carolina posted exactly how it happened.

Investigator Reveals How Left-Wing Donors, Tactics Fundamentally Changed Dem Party

Via Billy

George Soros (per Glenn Beck ‘the spooky dude’)

Capital Research Center (CRC), launched in 1984, is America’s investigative think tank focused on monitoring the center-left.

CRC lifts up the hood to expose how left-wing entities and donors operate to fundamentally transform American politics, and how they seek to consolidate government power while manipulating public opinion.

Scott Walter, the new president of CRC, sat down for this exclusive 26-minute video interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation and explained the Democrat party previously directed and controlled the left’s agenda and funding of all allied groups.

But much of this tactic has changed.

Here’s An Interesting Book…

(from Brock Townsend)

Those who hold Lenin, Trotsky, and Ho Chi Minh in anything other than contempt are dupes

Via WRSA

Communism did kill, Courtois and his fellow historians demonstrate, with ruthless efficiency: 25 million in Russia during the Bolshevik and Stalinist eras, perhaps 65 million in China under the eyes of Mao Zedong, 2 million in Cambodia, millions more Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America–an astonishingly high toll of victims. This freely expressed penchant for homicide, Courtois maintains, was no accident, but an integral trait of a philosophy, and a practical politics, that promised to erase class distinctions by erasing classes and the living humans that populated them.

Courtois and his contributors document Communism’s crimes in numbing detail, moving from country to country, revolution to revolution. The figures they offer will likely provoke argument, if not among cliometricians then among the ideologically inclined. So, too, will Courtois’s suggestion that those who hold Lenin, Trotsky, and Ho Chi Minh in anything other than contempt are dupes, witting or not, of a murderous school of thought–one that, while in retreat around the world, still has many adherents. A thought-provoking work of history and social criticism, The Black Book of Communism fully merits the broadest possible readership and discussion.

They need to author a companion piece about Capitalism – oh wait!  While there were certainly abuses and deaths, the numbers pale next to Communism.
Exponentially.
As do the results of a free market versus State control.

I know, I’m mostly preaching to the choir here.  But with the constant bombardment of the so-called ‘facts’ wonderful lands like Zimbabwe and Venezuela show us…

Oh, wait.

Police Assassination

dpdYes.  That’s exactly what it is.

MURDER as a political act.

Lets’ see…

Murder is illegal.  Murder toward a political end is illegal.  Assault with intent to commit murder is illegal.  Use of firearms by criminals is illegal.  Evading the police after the act is illegal.  Hiding perpetrators and evidence is illegal.  Hindering prosecution is illegal.

Some folks will focus on the motivation of the perpetrators.  Is it a ‘hate crime’?  WHY would the bad guys do such a thing?

As far as I’m concerned, when it comes to motivation, I DON’T CARE!  Hate crime is code for ‘you are not thinking correctly – report to the reeducation camps‘.  I’ll be a truant, thank you.  What I think Is MY business!  An assault remains an assault.  A murder a murder.

Like them or not, The Police are the thin blue line between most communities and anarchy.  Sure most homogenous communities would have some crime with or without the police.  My white-bread college town doesn’t have too much crime.  Under-age drinking; drug use and related offenses.  But what about minority communities with a fractured social structure?  South Chicago, for example?  Where the crime is largely Black-on-Black?

So, where does such criminality to attack police come from?  Certainly from police abuse against minorities, real and imagined,  as propagandized by certain political movements (communists, anarchists, Black power advocates) – politicians and community organizers meeting with their leaders, and making anti-law enforcement statements(!)

And there we have it.  If these ‘reverends’, ‘community organizers*’ and politicians actually stood up for non-violence, peace, and brotherhood.  And facts.  Perhaps acts such as occurred in Dallas would not have happened.

Facts.  That recent shooting where the Black man had a gun.  And a violent criminal record.  Not unlike that Missouri guy.  The tall, athletic guy, with a history of strong-arm-robbery, going for the security guy’s gun.

Do we not think that certain powers won’t utilize Dallas as yet another stepping stone toward abridging the rights of the law-abiding?

Double-secret probation, if you will?  Making it MORE illegal?

Our focus should first be on the good thoughts and prayers for the deceased, injured and their families.  Second, on bringing the perpetrators to justice.

And third, on stopping crime in fractured neighborhoods.  Instead of just letting them fester.

A tall order, I know.

 

*didn’t we used to call them outside agitators?

You Can’t Tell The Players Without A Program!

aka what’s in a name?

One way those adverse to the American Constitutional Republic Way Of Life keep replicating their cause is they keep changing their name!  And adding additional names to the roster.

Not unlike viruses mutating to stay alive.

Remember the Communist Party of Soviet Russia fame?  Well, it became CPUSA here.  Then morphed into fellow travelers.  (The Black Panthers became the NEW Black Panthers, etc.)

(Were the NEW Christy Minstrels significantly different from the original?  Inquiring minds want to know.)  🙂

Communists became Socialists.  Which became Progressives.  Which infected once honorable institutions like the Democratic Party and the NAACP.

And, yes, the Republican Party, as well(!)

As I’ve oft stated here, it’s all about control. 

I used to use the phrase petty power and control, now I’m convinced it’s no longer petty – it’s grand! (and NOT in a good way!)

Brock Townsend brings us this interesting link.   To The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA!

It seems THEY were the folks responsible for printing the protest signs used by the protesters looters criminals present after that Latino dude defended his life against a Black football playing career criminal White guy murdered an innocent Black youth.  (links below)

The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA Printed Ferguson Protest Signs

Via Horace “Sent to me by my friend of 20 years now, Bob Conley who retired from active Marine duty in 1969.  He served from Iran to Vietnam, among others.  He is my idea of a US Serviceman/Veteran, mentally and physically sharp at 84 years.  A prostate cancer survivor.  A Devil Dog if I ever knew one.”

Grassroots, my A**!
Bet they are connected to those SEIU union folks that bus people around to protests, as well.
‘Workers of the World, Unite’, and all that c**p.

MAROONS!

There was a time (I think I was 5 or 6) when I remember telling my parents I wanted to go to Harvard or M.I.T. (!)  I’m certain, as we had recently moved from New Haven to Phoenix that it hurt them I didn’t even mention Yale…

But, I was young and impressionable.

Alas, it appears most of the Ivy League and other ‘famous’ schools have now become infamous

A shame, really.

And my grades didn’t get me a needed scholarship, so I attended a local party school and junior college.  And paid for it all myself.

Guess I learned something after all.

22 VETERANS COMMIT SUICIDE DAILY

Even ONE of these heroes making this choice is unacceptable! (Day #5 of 22)

Unsung Heroes

There is a prevalent attitude to laud our own heroes, and minimize others.  I suspect this has to do with patriotism and nationalism.  And as far as it goes, there is nothing wrong in so doing.

However, it is also good to acknowledge others from other cultures who did what is right, rather than as they were ordered.

The many Germans who hid and smuggled out Jews; the North African Arabs who protected Jews and Christians.  There are many others unsung.

And then there’s THIS GUY (from Brock Townsend):

The Man who Saved the World

https://i0.wp.com/thelosangelesbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/306594_10151302957148125_1314713586_n2.jpg

“A guy called Vasili Arkhipov saved the world.” –  Thomas Blanton in 2002 (then director of the National Security Archive)

Last month, October 27, 1962 marked the 50th anniversary of an event too important in world history for it to get lost amid the Halloween and other “trivial” holiday-related notifications. I therefore chose to wait until they were over to pay due honor to this truly great and heroic gentleman who is sadly almost unknown outside his mother country: Vasili Arkhipov.

At the nail-biting height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasili Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 adamantly refused to follow his commanding officers’ order to launch nuclear torpedoes against USA warships which had been dropping depth charges near his submarine in a attempt to force it to surface.

I’ve never been a fan of communism, the Soviet system or their minions.  But doing the right thing against orders is indeed brave – especially in such a system!

На Здоровье!

(Nastrovia!)

Why All The Violence Against Trump?

You know me – I don’t broadcast whom I support on the Internet.

“The Australian Secret Ballot is one of our most cherished possessions!” (oft quoted by Guffaw)

BUT, I’m curious regarding all this vitriol and violence against Trump and Trump supporters?  I mean, you don’t see it against Bernie or Hillary (or Johnson)?

But, I think I figured it out…

Angela Davis is a radical left-wing communist who was once on the FBI’s most wanted list. Naturally, today she’s a college professor who’s celebrated by the left as a civil rights activist.
Given her violent past, isn’t it a cause for concern when she says ‘We have to do whatever is necessary’ to stop a Donald Trump presidency?

These ‘protesters’ must all be ex-felons!  And therefore, unable to vote*!
No wonder they want to stop Trump by ‘whatever is necessary’!
Nice she’s moved on with her life to become a tenured college professor, molding young minds and all…

*With the exception of Virginia(?), where the governor recently announced they could vote!  AND Illionois – oh wait, that’s dead folks…
