Thought For Today — And Beyond

My reaction to the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia...

Independent of President Trump's statements about these events, I am concerned that too many in our nation have descended into the Cult of Victimology.

Self-pity, whatever the topic or cause — be it a legitimate or an illegitimate cause — is unhealthy for the body of our republic.

Furthermore, in my view, such victimology-identities predate the arrival of Donald Trump upon the political landscape.

We are watching the devolution of America.

  1. Yeah, I agree. No Conservative should feel sorry for himself because people hate Nazis. We should simply point out that Nazis are about top-down government control, just like Leftists.

      As you know, true Conservatism and fascism (Nazism) do not equate.

      And true Conservatism and what is now called "white supremacism" do not equate.

  2. Smelting Pot

    America used to be a melting pot, where cultures from all over blended together to produce a vibrant, successful nation. Today, not so much.

    America is now a smelting pot, where incompatible cultures separate under extreme heat, producing sulfurous odors, societal corrosives, slag and other useless byproducts.

    The elites (guilty, white leftwing progressives) tell us we should be ashamed of our white, Anglo-Saxon protestant culture. They scream "racist!" and "cultural chauvenism," at anyone who mounts a defense of our traditional and unique American culture (which, btw, peoples of all colors and ethnic heritages have contributed to).

    Progressives with the financial means mount such attacks from the safety of their gated Elysiums, safely sanitized of the diversity they love to preach to the rest of us about.

    Progressive elites of all parties are remaking America into a polyglot patchwork of mutually exclusive and antagonistic cultures, mixing in unassimilable immigrants with our already burgeoning hordes of smug metrosexuals, un-hip rural folk, home-grown criminals, neo-nazis, gang members, serial impregnators, coochie bootie single mamas, and high school dropouts who care more about drug legalization and government freebees than what direction our nation is headed in.

    America is a smelting pot. Ain't diversity grand?

    2. "DIVIDE and CONQUER."

      This is the deliberately plotted work of MARXIAN-GLOBALIST-INTERNATIONALISTS paving the way for ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT where ALL countries will be united under the DICTATORIAL RULE of The OLIGARCHS.

      RIght now, The Oligarchs are working league with Marxists and Islamists, because those two elements are determined to DESTROY the United States of America and all remnants of Western Civilization .

      Do the OLIGARCHS ever question their own capacity to SUBDUE and CONTROL the ferocious barbaric elements currently working as allies in the struggle to END US SOVEREIGNTY and END ANGLO-EUROPEAN-CHRISTIAN AMERICAN CULTURE once and for all?

      The Oligarchs who are few in number and empowered largely by their dominance over the supply of MONEY and RAW MATERIALS would be quite helpless, I'm sure, if the Islamist Barbarians and Communist Revolutionaries were to turn in them –– which would be almost a certainty one "we" are fully disarmed, deracinated, and enslaved.

  3. Your link headline begins to tell the story. "Three Dead..." How did a police helicopter crash add up to being killed in the event? No proof. As of now the copter could just as well been in the air for a traffic report.
    I only use this as an example of the bias media coverage. The group had a permit. Antifa did not. The police were told to stand down as reported this morning by Fox. Everyone knew in the beginning it wasn't going to end well.

      You see only what you choose to see through your ideological blindfold. I'm not going to try to reason with a willfully ignorant asshole. You taught the folly in that long ago.

      As George Orwell wrote in his novel 1984, "“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” That's just is what is going on now. The Socialists / Commies have always did this. The Soviet purges, the Red Chinese "Great Leap Forward", the Khmer Rouge under Pol Pot, The "Progressives" and their rehabilitation of their motives and their name. I could go on but it's a waste of time.

      Free Think, did not "defend the Klan and Nazis". He was defending the Constitution but you're such a dumb shit I doubt that you would be capable of understanding the difference. He shouldn't show any "shame". but if you had a shred of decency you would!

      No, it's not.

      One person, who appears to have registered for the 2016 election as a Republican used his car as a murder weapon.

      The malignancy to which I assume you're referring has a history with the Democratic Party -- not with the Republican Party.

      If you really can't understand the relevancy of the Orwell quote which Warren cited, you have slipped a gear.

      BTW, I knew that trouble was coming yesterday. Since at least Friday morning, the media were ginning up this protest in Charlottesville. It's no wonder that something happened.

      Here I'll help you out.
      I'm not a Republican all except for a two year period when I wanted to vote in a Republican Primary, (The Republicans seldom have multiple candidates running for the same office in this area. I've been a registered Democrat all of my adult life. I actually vote for the candidate that most represents my values, (which you wouldn't understand as you do not have any values). I've never voted for a Democrat for national office.

      Now, as soon as the Democrats purge themselves of the likes of you, illegal aliens, Keith Ellison, BLM, the big unions, code pink and a whole lot more (their name is legion,) you give me a heads up and I'll reconsider.

      "What does the Orwell quote have to do with this dim bulb unless you mean we shouldn't let Nazis get a toe hold."

      Let me *splane* it to you Lucy. I'll admit it might have confused you a bit but I assumed that you remember what you comment. I read all the comments before I answer any particular one. Concerning this bit:

  5. Check out this information about the Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville:

    He has worked for the Center for American Progress and worked with John Podesta on Barack Obama's State Department Transition Team.

    Mr. Signer has been busy since yesterday evening -- all over ever news show I saw -- in his zeal to lay yesterday's outbreak of violence "at the steps of the White House."

    Check out this list and this list of articles that Mr. Signer has written.

    If it is true that the Unite the Right group, a group which had a lawful permit, to walk through the lines of Anti-fa so as to reach their designated assembly place, I submit that the authorities in Charlottesville were hoping for violence to break out.

  7. _______ KILLERS ______

    _____ I am singing to you

    Soft as a man with a dead child speaks;

    Hard as a man in handcuffs,

    Held where he cannot move:

    _____ Under the sun

    Are sixteen million men,

    Chosen for shining teeth,

    Sharp eyes, hard legs,

    And a running of young warm blood in their wrists.

    _____ And a red juice runs on the green grass;

    And a red juice soaks the dark soil.

    And the sixteen million are killing –– and killing

    _____ and killing.

    _____ I never forget them day or night:

    They beat on my head for memory of them;

    They pound on my heart and I cry back to them,

    To their homes and families, dreams and games.

    _____ I wake in the night and smell the trenches,

    And hear the low stir of sleepers in lines--

    Sixteen million sleepers and pickets in the dark:

    Some of them long sleepers for always,

    Some of them tumbling to sleep tomorrow for always,

    Fixed in the drag of the world's heartbreak,

    Eating and drinking, toiling –– on a long job of
    
_____ killing.

    Sixteen million men.

    2. I've become so cynical about the origins and intent of violent incidents like this latest Event in Charlottesville that wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the White Man who Drove the Truck into the ANTIFA crowd was not in truth a LEFTIST, himself.

      Hard-core Leftists hve ALWAYS been MORE-than-willing to LIE, STEAL, CHEAT, MAIM and KILL to get their way.

      Sacrifcing a few of their own would be perfectly in line with their perverse methodology, which has ALWAYS been based in the notion that OUR ENDS are SO RIGHTEOUS, SO NOBLE, SO FINE and SO NECESSARY that it's perfectly all right to RIOT, BOMB, LOOT, MAIM, COMMIT MAYHEM and SLAUGHTER very large numbers of fellow human beings, if it means a step in the direction of achieving "SOCIAL JUSTICE."

      If ANY political faction closely resembles the "NAZIS," it surely must be the MARXIAN –– FABIAN –– SOCIALIST –– PROGRESSIVE –– LIBERAL –– STATIST –– DEMOCRATS in their many and varied forms. After "NAZI" is an acronym fr the NATIINAL SOCIALIST PARTY in Post-WWI Gwernany.

      I have always maintained that there is no appreciable difference between "Nazis" and "Commies", despite their much-vaunted antagonism toward each other. BOTH end up in the same place –– a TOTALITARIAN REGIME where no individual can call his soul his own.

  11. I deeply resent the ENEMEDIA's constantly referring to the demonstrators who DID have a PERMIT to march in favor of thei THEIR point of view as "White Supremamcists" or "Neo-Nazis"

    I don't believe THEY call themselves "White Supremacists." That is a pejorative appellation conjured up by the ENEMEDIA who is in league with ANYTHING and EVERYTHING –– and EVERYONE –– that pits itself against Traditional American Culture and Christian Mores.

    The ENEMEDIA –– and all these Campus Commies and self-styled crypto-Marxist "Revolutionaries" –– like CANARDO –– who constantly besiege us with their insolence in the form of carping, cavilling, sniping, sneering, always impertinent rhetoric –– are bound and determined to do everythung possible make Caucasian Christians feel ASHAMED of being who they are.

    The Left will not rest till it reduces "US" to snivelling, grovelling, BEGGARS dispossessed and deracinated in our OWN land.

    That is what ALL this nonsense about "the necessity of removing Civil War Monuments in order to achieve Social Justice" is REALLY all about make no istake about it.

    Of course succumbing to the temptation to commit VIOLENCE against those who torment us is playing RIGHT into the hands of these fiends who seek our destruction.

    The Left THRIVES on the errors "we" commit whenever we try to defend ourselves against the ceaseless insurgency Leftists visit upon us in ten-thousand ways every day of every week of every year.

    The name of the game the Left forces "US" to play is this:

    In THEIR minds NOTHNG that "WE" Do could EVER be considered RIGHT. We see this with the vicious, totally unprincipled campaign the Left mounted against President Trump the day he came down that famous escalator and threw his proverbial hat int the ring and told us he wanted to be our next president.

  17. Without objection, I will say again my comment at Bunkerville. And I will beg everyone’s pardon right at the outset for the appearance of any French-sounding words, but my questions are these: 
    Why is it wrong for anyone to call themselves “white nation,” (which I do not agree with), but it is okay for groups to call themselves “Black Lives Matter,” “War on the Horizon,” “Nation of Islam,” and “New Black Panther?” I am guessing that if there is any rationale, it would more or less equate to blacks calling other blacks “nigga” and “nappy headed ho,” and yet if a white person does it, it constitutes some heinous form of racism. 
    If rowdies are tossing cans filled with dried cement (suggesting a premeditated act of violence), then why is it not okay for other groups to kick their asses? If these people are prepared to use automobiles to kill other human beings, then shouldn’t there be background checks before anyone can purchase one? Do the American people have the right to protect themselves from killer automobiles with, say, a .44 magnum?
    If cops are going to acquiesce to perpetrators of violence, shouldn’t they remove “to protect and serve” from the side of their squad cars? (Although I should also acknowledge that when police do the right thing, their cities, states, and federal government come down on them with suspension from duty without pay and “civil rights” probes). 
    Given that the media isn’t calling this what it is suggests that they are a bunch of Lilly-livered cowards, completely signed on the Obama’s eight years of racist policies. 
    My final questions are: when a mayor sets up, orchestrates, or enables violence in his community, isn’t he guilty of the worst kind of malfeasance? Could the mayor be sued for this sort of criminal behavior? Is there anyone in Virginia who will take this to the courts? Does the American Civil Liberties Union only protect black thugs and/or registered democrats/communists?

    1. Given that the media isn’t calling this what it is suggests that they are a bunch of Lilly-livered cowards, completely signed on the Obama’s eight years of racist policies.
      -------
      Well, what is it?

      Is there some way to misinterpret someone carrying a Nazi flag?
      Is there some way to misinterpret David Duke?

      The fact remains. There is a malignant growth in the far right establishment that you aren't willing to excise.

      Simple, no sophistry, no French sounding words.

    2. Ducky,

      Your observation about "malignant growth" is particularly facile and gratuitous, even for you.

      Do you recognize the "malignant growth" on your own left ass cheek?

      The murderer who murdered those people in Portland was a Bernie Bro. He attended a Trump rally, started in on his white supremacist BS, and got tossed out on his ass.

      Now, I'll ask you a few questions, even though as per your usual Duck and Scurry behavior, I expect no response:

      What mainstream individuals in the GOP or in mainstream conservatism encourage/support white supremacists, Nazi flags, or David Duke?

      Provide specific examples/quotes.

    3. As far as David Duke goes, there was his endorsement of President Happy Hands and the subsequent refusal to disavow the endorsement.

      Of course there's L'Affaire Jeffrey Lord (sorry, I had to use a French sounding word).

      As far as the Portland shooter is concerned. He had a face book post that was more a display of his hatred of Clinton than any positive support for Sanders.
      Again it was a white supremacist mouthing some insanity about "free speech". Stop me if I'm wrong but I believe he was caught on tape giving the Nazi salute.
      You ever seen the Nazi salute t Sanders rally? Cut the sophistry.

      When I duck responding to a Libertarian you'll know I'm in hospice.

    4. The day ducky denounces ANTIFA for the first time is the day I'll denounce David Duke for the thousandth time.

    5. Yes, Ducky, he was a Bernie Bro and a white supremacist. The fact that you can't fit that into your closed mind says much.

      I asked you a simple question, and you did your standard Duck and Canardo Kabuki.

      I'll repeat the question and invite your response:

      What mainstream individuals in the GOP or in mainstream conservatism encourage/support white supremacists, Nazi flags, or David Duke?

      Provide specific examples/quotes.

    7. Mustang,
      Why is it wrong for anyone to call themselves “white nation,” (which I do not agree with), but it is okay for groups to call themselves “Black Lives Matter,” “War on the Horizon,” “Nation of Islam,” and “New Black Panther?”

      There is no logic in what we're watching play out before our very eyes.

      I'm getting very fed up!

      All this insanity has gotten on my last nerve!

      I don't hear any rumblings about taking the mayor of Charlottesville to court! In my view, he's culpable in the death of Heath Heyer -- never mind that she appears to be an of-sorts professional demonstrator.

      FYI...the ACLU of Virginia does appear to be taking the side of Unite the Right -- so far. You can find the ACLU of Virginia on Twitter.

    8. The fact remains. There is a malignant growth in the FAR-LEFT establishment that Canard isn’t willing to excise.

      I’ve never perceived of any empathy from Ducky for the victims of the Boston Bombing; nothing for Kate Steinle; I’ve heard no expressions of sorrow for the woman recently killed by an idiot, or the 19 or so people he injured. As Silverfiddle suggests, Ducky points his finger to deflect away from the filth of his own position ... it is the typical leftist run and hide. I’m guessing that Ducky has no trouble with people filling up cans with cement, letting them harden in advance of a ‘spontaneous demonstration’ and tossing them at other citizens with the intention of doing serious and permanent harm. I do not know anyone who supports white supremacist rhetoric, but I do hear a lot from the left about “Kill the pigs,” and “assassinate DJT” ... so Ducky, don’t speak to me about malignant growth until you get your own side of the isle in order.

    9. Well, Farmer, we'll see this weekend.

      A "free speech" rally is scheduled on the Common.
      A variety of people will be there and I'm sure ANTIFA will be there.

      Will it turn violent? Can't tell but I'm going to try to get some photos.

    10. Duck,

      I think that you're more likely to get whacked by Antifa -- unless, of course, you're clearly a member thereof. You can test my theory by wearing a "Make America Great Again" cap. Just sayin'.

    13. It's tough to respond succinctly, mustang but let's say that what you mean when you inaccurately state that I had nothing to say about the marathon bombings or Kate Steinle is that I didn't rush to join you bellowing that all Muslims and Hispanics should be banned from the country.
      I don't believe that and I'm not going to play your game.

      Mustang represents absolutely no guide to defusing the hatred in the country right now.

      By the way, the only reference I found to hardened cement cans at Charlottesville is a World Net Daily screed. The gold standard of objective reporting.
      I also mentioned that the Nazi who drove into the crowd drove into a group of Antifa and BLM marchers.
      Well, Heather Heyer was neither and it's obvious you ccan spare no sympathy for her, right?

      No, you don't go in for obvious white supremacy rhetoric. You're much too subtle for that.

      Delete
    14. Duck,
      Stop.

      You know full well that Mustang and I are friends -- good friends. You are insulting him and, at the same time, presuming too much about what he reads or doesn't read and what he believes or doesn't believe.

      Back off.

  18. Here is the deal. I see the march as a museum in miniature, a cultural display of both sentiment and freedom of expression.

    Consider Mardi Gras. Women hang off balconies and toss necklaces to men which are draped across their bare chests. Should they be arrested? Nope. It is a museum in miniature, a one time cultural display.

    http://fortune.com/2016/10/13/silicon-valley-jobs/

    Progressivism at its fundamental core is totalitarian.

    The 1% are a vampiric class attached to the necks of working Americans, extracting all wealth in the nation and accumulating it to themselves. This includes Silicon Valley Robber Barons and corporate entities mooching off this nation, squatting here, raking in obscene profits and tossing us flat panel TVs and porn-surfing devices as they speed off in their getaway cars.

    Until those on the left realize that "their people" are complicit in this, just as they are in the hate and violence, we can't even begin a discussion.

  22. To ALL you Liberals out there, as well as you Stupid Progressive Imbicels! Listen and Read this good. And hopefully your low IQ's are high enough so that you can understand.
    If not, please have your Momma explain it to you.
    The first amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees:

    "the right of the people peaceably to assemble"

    When watching the videos of yesterday's protest and counter protest, a large number of the people at the protest were armed - many had helmets and shields as well as various weapons ranging from clubs to pepper spray to guns.

    It's apparent that these people were at best anticipating violence, and may have intended to incite violence.
    The Constitution does NOT have a right to violent protest. It does note cite a right to gather as an armed mob.

    The violence at yesterdays protest would probably have been a whole lot less if no one on either side had weapons of any type, and if they did not any protective gear.

    Even wearing protective gear shows that they are anticipating violence. Anyone who foes to a protest while anticipating violence has no right to go to that protest.

    It seems that protest groups go far beyond their Constitutional right - if they intend to incite violence or even anticipate violence, they are no longer within their Constitutional rights.

    In the future, if anyone shows up at a protest or counter protest with weapons or protective gear, they should immediately be arrested. If a sizable number have weapons or protective gear, the police should use whatever means necessary to end the protest!

    I try not to toot my own blog horn, but did you see this that I blogged on today? I'm not saying it's absolutely true, but I sensed this way before I read this article. Even libs are saying it's odd the cops stepped away when the tough stuff started happening...WHY? "To get their riot gear" says the Police Chief...so it wasn't enough when they first saw bats and other weapons to go put riot gear on?

    Maybe someone posted it above, I don't have time to read more than I have of everyone's excellent comments...but this is fascinating fodder.

  24. I tried to research some of the white supremacy organizations, but some have been shut down by Youtube, Go Daddy, Wordpress, and ones who have moved websites are perhaps not being updated by the google.

    These organizations are being denied a platform by private companies for "violating terms of ..."

    Meanwhile, porn, murder videos and slobbering leftwing hatred of President Trump and those who voted for him continues to be posted.

    See how this works? Can't claim First Amendment because its a private company denying service... kinda like the bakers who didn't want to bake the gay wedding cakes...

    Illiberal leftists in this country and much of the rest of the world have been screaming for decades about the dangers of our strong free speech laws--some of the strongest and most radical in the world.

    What government cannot do, private companies can, and when those private companies have an almost monopolistic hold on internet speech platform, guess what kids... They quash all speech they disagree with.

  26. Mob rule and the ideological result of our victimology-promoting public education system...

    Durham Protesters Topple Confederate Monument, Then Spit on It, Kick It
    The statue honored soldiers who fought in the Civil War
    .

    It was a generic statue and, according to ABC:

    The monument of a Confederate soldier holding a rifle was erected in 1924 and inscribed on it are the words "in memory of the boys who wore the gray."...

    Also at the same ABC link:

    ...Shortly after 9:30 p.m., Durham Police issued a response to the protests.

    "The DPD is aware that a Confederate monument was toppled at the old Durham County courthouse. Because this incident occurred on county property, where county law enforcement officials were staffed, no arrests were made by DPD officers," the department said in a statement."

    Police said the Durham County Sheriff's Office is the agency that has jurisdiction over all county buildings and landmarks.

    "When monitoring such incidents, the Sheriff's Office is the decision-making agency regarding law enforcement response on matters concerning county property," DPD explained.

    Shortly before 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Durham County issued a statement that didn't specifically mention Monday's statue incident:

    "Our elected officials and senior staff understand the unrest in our nation and community, particularly following the senseless acts that took place in Charlottesville, VA. We share the sentiments of many communities around the nation that admonish hate and acts of violence as we believe civility is necessary in our every action and response. Governmental agencies dedicated to public safety will continue to work collectively to ensure Durham remains a community of excellence where all of our residents can live peacefully, grow and thrive."...
