People denigrate Alexandra Ocrazio Cortex. It’s as if she is considered a mental bantamweight up against Muhammad Ali. She may or may not be a couple of cans of Pabst Blue Redneck short of a dashboard six-pack, but she is doing exactly what Pelosi and Schumer want her to do. A lot of the Conservative media is being played to consummate fare-thee-well.
In what way, the Cucks may ask. Ocasio-Cortez would struggle with 1D Chess. She approaches the JQ, Taxation Policy, immigration policy, et al.. as if she were Stalin in a pantssuit. She is scary. Exactly! She is trying to be scary. It is a role. Like a pass-rushing Outside Linebacker, she constantly blitzes because that’s what Coach Pelosi designed into the play scheme.
Tom Wolfe described the situation. He wrote a famous essay entitled “The Mau-Mauing of The Flack-Catchers” in which he described how The Black Panthers deliberately scared suburban White People into giving more “reasonable” blacks money and power. Malcolm X describes this in his famous “Message To The Grass Roots.” His off-the-cuff remark about “Chickens Coming Home To Roost” was not off the cuff. It was subtle pyschological dominance.
The Maoist Psycho-Ditz act is done to establish a counter point. You can “compromise” with “rational” liberals like Pelosi and Schumer or you can deal with Ocrazio-Cortex. Well-played Mr. Schumer, well-played indeed.
My six or so constant readers know that I was no big fan of President Trump bombing Syria. I don’t, however, think he’s planning WW3. He’s perhaps being cozened into it by a Deep State that answers regularly to Boeing and Lockmart. Other people’s opinions differ. The link above is someone who totally disagrees. YMMV as to who is crazier.
Nietzsche quite correctly asserted that egalitarianism is a “slave morality,” because norms of moral equality retard human flourishing; hierarchical societies which emulate the natural world and revel in it flourish, while those which do not, perish.
I hate equality. It’s putting ankle weights on Steph Curry to make the NBA more fair. It’s hiring incompetent nincompoops to six-figure jobs to make up for “historical injustices.” Equality only ever happens at the zero. Entropy is the only thing that will ever effectively bring about equality. That only works when heat death occurs. The author is starting out from a strong position here.
Then he mistakes the paintbrush for the masterpiece. Might is not, in and of itself, right. It is what you need to protect yourself and right the wrongs. It’s like money. It doesn’t buy happiness in and of itself. It gives you the power to buy more happiness if you spend and invest it in a moral fashion. Might works the same way. Hit the gym and do the roadwork. Read challenging books to make yourself smarter. But don’t worship at the altar of brute strength or coruscating brilliance. Idolatry tempts us from even our most noble impulses.
Street Justice happens when Justice-Justice doesn’t. Large groups of foreigners who hate The Swedes have been brought into Sweden and are being allowed to run amok. The Swedes are doing what is rational. They are protecting themselves from invasion. Don’t they pay taxes out the nose so that their wise and benevolent government can be big enough to handle this sort of thing? Oh, wait…
But in the meanwhile,
More people should kill what they eat and eat what they kill. Agribusiness has disconnected humanity from the ecological food web and has undoubtedly accelerated the rate at which we as a species trash the environment. People are more careful with what they actually understand and rely upon.
Never mix your politics with your paycheck unless you are a professional politician. Why not? Because you are so concerned about advancing your politics that you no longer successfully accomplish your job. You are compromised. You serve two masters and have to hate at least one.
Would anyone want their son counseled by a member of the APA after reading this pathetic dreck?
For the first time in its history, the American Psychological Association (APA) released guidelines concerning men and boys, saying that so-called “traditional masculinity” not only is “harmful” but also could lead to homophobia and sexual harassment. “The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity – marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression – is, on the whole, harmful,” reads the news release by the famed association.
I’m not sure an insight should have a main thrust. It could penetrate things without seeking permission first. It could master the discussion in a domineering act of brutal, Europhallocentric intellectual rape. I’m scared that I won’t even be able to get a BDSM safe word in edgewise. The whorror!
The ZMan noticed the end state of a long progression. Consumer products are downstream from engineering. Engineering is downstream from theoretical science, which is turn downstream from from cultural epistemology. If you’ve read your Oswald Spengler and have seen America stop being a culture and degenerate into a demotic and dying civilization we call Amerika, then the logical epistemological question here becomes “What in the hell are we thinking?”
We stopped thinking anything new a long time ago. Our science has not seriously progressed past the Golden Age of Physics or the failed genetic revolution. It was easy to crank out CRTs and microwave ovens when Sudneetha Bose and Arthur Holly Compton were revolutionizing Physics with breakthroughs in Quantum Physics and Optics. Stealth Technology is straight downstream from Modern Differential Geometry. GPS systems follow a more tortured, but still navigable path from Einstein’s Relativistic Physics to the windshield of every Amerikan’s Toyota Highlander or Honda CRV.
Then the breakthroughs stopped. The Engineering became a bitch-kitty and the technological bowel system suffered from constipation. Modern, Linear Faustian Science has run it’s course. The decline is obviously visible when the spokesmanship passes from Albert Einstein to Carl Sagan to Neil DeGrasse Tyson. It’s been about 40 years since we really smashed through any scientific barriers. It’s gotten all the way through the innovation pathway now and geniuses in Vegas now have got nothing.
Perhaps the proper funeral march should be as musically unoriginal as possible. Here goes.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi should listen to her intellectual superiors. It would greatly expand the sources of opinion and advice upon which she relies. Take, for example, the somewhat confused artist known as Cher… After a few extra minutes to decipher her Twitter Cant, I think she’s telling Mizz Nancy the following. “Trump is a dick. Dicks screw people. You’ll lose if you play his game.” I include the original so that you can judge for yourself how well I’ve deciphered the strange and mysterious language of Cher.
“HELL B HERO… HE’LL EAT UR LUNCH & STEAL UR LUNCH YOU’LL B FKD 6 WAYS 2 SUNDAY.DONT DIE ON THIS HILL. HE STOPS AT NOTHING.”
Here’s something Cap’n Obvious could have told you. People that fled El Salvador to get the the US do not want MS13 members allowed in. Why do you think they are no longer proud Salvadoran Citizens? It puts them in a morally ambiguous position. When they are trying to get in themselves, they quote the execrable J. Danforth Quayle and tell us “Diversity is our strength.” When they see the steaming piles of excrement from their excrement-hole former countries coming right up Via La Migra behind them, they then have to say “Not all diversity is our strength.” Amazing how globalism compromises us all…
California’s Slore of Babylon, Senator Kamala Harris is running for President. Perhaps if she wins, the rest of us can then begin running for our lives. People had her game figured out maybe 2K Years ago. Here’s one expert’s opinion of what role President Harris would play in the coming of a new age.
1…Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters.
2 With her the kings of the earth committed adultery, and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.
4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.
5 The name written on her forehead was a mystery: Babylon The Great – the mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth.
6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.
They came at the king. As we learned from Omar in The Wire, “You come at the king, you best not miss!”
Democracy rots everyone’s perspective. The closer they get to power, the closer they are to the warping field. These wonderful economists don’t ask whether a Recession would hurt people. They ask whether it will happen just in time for the 2020 election. Obviously, the outcome of the election matters more than the economics these distinguished professionals are supposed to care about.
So what’s the downside? Am I supposed to feel threatened here? I thought NBC was a news network.
A Lefty Billionaire has ponied up to defend their favorite (((Conservative))) Bill Kristol. At some point this bloated, psuedo-sapient dotard will become a self-parody. But he’s still got a job as long as Lefty needs him. This is what George Will has to look forward to in about 10-15 years.
As the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo await the results of the Dec. 30 election and brace for possible violence, the U.S. government and its allies in Africa have a decision to make: Does the choice of the Congolese people matter, or is a messy charade sufficient to endorse business as usual in central Africa’s perpetually troubled giant..
We should import all of these people. Our magic dirt would turn them into natural conservatives. Or not. No other country in Africa should want anything to do with the Congo. Kurtz couldn’t fix the place. “The Horror!”
And now for the comic relief…
