The Current State of the GOP:

 It is a delusion of perception, tied to a delusion of entitlement.

You Deserve to Go to Jail for Being that Stupid.

 https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/21/politics/oath-keepers-vip-security-capitol-riot/index.html


Back in 1969, Hells Angels were hired as security for a Stones concert.  Despite not being an established security company.  Shit went south, people died. 


I mention that historical fact to establish a fact based baseline.  If your job is not security, and you do not have the gig through an established security company, if you do not turn the gig down. You are a fucking moron who deserves to go to jail for being such a  fucking moron.  And if the felony or misdemeanor murder rule applies, based of the facts?  Which they do, based on my understanding of such, for anyone involved in the conspiracy to orchestrate the insurrection?  And if for some dumbassed reason you don't get charged with the murder count?  Consider yourself lucky, bitch.  (But that could happen, after the new USAG is sworn in.) 

I say all that because  one of the treasonous, trash insurrectionists is using that as part of their defense:  I was working security!  As bad as that is for a defense, one you remember how amateur 
security gigs are the stuff of fucking idiots?  It gets worse.  She claims to believe that Bozo was going to (illegally) invoke the insurrection act and (illegally) stop Congress from doing its  (actually) lawful constitutional duties and confirm Biden/Harris having been (lawfully) elected.


Yeah.  If she actually believed all that bullshit, she deserves to go to jail for being that fucking stupid.

I am parking this shit here for now

https://www.apa.org/research/action/speaking-of-psychology/conspiracy-theories

I am mean.  The experts say be kind to people stuck in that shit. Or is it stuck on that shit?  Anyway, I still write off people who believe in conspiracy theories as mostly plain fucking stupid.  And one can have a college degree, and an advance degree after getting their BA or BS, and still be mostly plain fucking stupid.  Not that I want to give any moral support for those tiresome idiots who spend too much time being whiny, complaining anti elitists.  That is itself a form of elitism.  And one must be mostly plain fucking stupid not to see that.  But enough of that.


I do want to take issue with something said in this article.  Yes.  Lots of people, particularly those lacking in education, lack the knowledge to tell good primary authority from stupid shit, and know not a thing about disciplined thinking.  Now let's talk about my former friend who is a lawyer, and a graduate of BU  undergrad.  What the fuck is his excuse for not utilizing his trained at logical and critical thinking lawyer brain?

I could guess.  And yes.  None of the answers are pretty.  However, I am reminded of the declaration against interest I saw some pig fucking Republican admit to, on a message board, years ago.  He said he used stereotypes because, and I quote,"Saves time."


Like I said.  Not pretty, and mostly plain fucking stupid.

Funny how people who complain about the idea of white fragility

 Seem to be so fucking fragile.  There has been a story kicking around about some lady at Smith College.  She could very well be a perfectly nice lady, usually.  But she first got famous for posting a vid on YouTube complaining about racial sensitivity training.  Some such.


Quick sidebar.  I used to be an employment lawyer. Your job is basically to do what the fuck you are told to do.  Your job is not to be your most fulfilled, and expressive, authentic self.


So if you are complaining about what you are being told to do.  And as long as that is not illegal, unethical, or harmful to yourself or others?  If you complain  because it challenges you on some internal value level?   Go ahead and quit.  But you are not a martyr.  You are just fragile.


And if your internal value is some how related to your discomfort with how race sensitivity programs are triggering your white fragility, you are more than fragile. You too white.  You are trying to preserve the value of your white status.  And yes.  That is what racial sensitivity training is supposed to do.  It is supposed to challenge white people's value of being white.


I tried to read the lady's letter about quitting  with as much as an open mind as possible.  But when I got to the part where she was whining about how her presentation got shot down because she was planning on doing it as a rap song?  I had to stop reading.  Few things scream I am a white pickanny as loudly as a white lady being upset when told.  Loose the rap song.  Some people my take offense.


It takes talent to prove and miss the point why racial sensitivity training is needed in one instance.  Rethink that.  That likely is more common that I first thought.  I will guess.


Anyway. I always guessed the next critical step in decolonization of Racist America was going to be hard.  I thought  the extreme Republican racists would go down fighting and screaming.  That was an easy guess.  I did not expect better educated, liberal white women to be so fussy.


But that is the sickness of white privilege on full display for you.  Some people are going to resist having their presumptions challenged.  Even if they mean well, usually.


Nota Bene.  Education is the process we undergo to learn how to play by the rules, and also how to challenge the rules.  And hopefully at the same time, we gain the wisdom to know when to do the one or the other.

I could say that one should never quit the job they have on account of some mere socio political twaddle, at least not before you have the next job lined up.  But personally I have been part of the gig economy for most of the past 40 years.  But still. If you have a real job with benefits, don't vote with your feet until after you have the next job with benefits properly lined up.

Peeps are still arguing that stupid argument.

 Let's say your local Neo Nazis are having a picnic.  And they are going to serve some kick ass strudel.  And you love strudel.  And you go to the picnic just for the strudel.  Didn't you still decide to hang out with Neo Nazis?

So much for the fine people on both sides, argument.

That Algorithm is Unforgiving.

 I ended up in FB jail again. This time for a three day stretch. I actually bothered to complete the application for an appeal as the algorithm fucked me big time, and I have time to kill today.


My offense was to have  a race or ethnicity w/in 3 of a list of nasty words.  That is my guess.  But my actual post was a reference to how bad the Brazilian slave plantations were with that whole working people to death part.  And I said the Brazilians were as bad as the Dutch motherfuckers.  Murderers.


Basically all the slave colony nations were engaged in mass murder.  Some were worst at that across the board.  The Dutch were considered to be particularly brutal.  Even the Spanish were some of the time.  A lot depended on the work.  Sugar Cane was the worst.  If the work was live stock?  Not so bad. You wanted healthy skilled slaves for that work. So it was bad business to abuse and work to death your slaves under that circumstance.


Anyway.  I could paste the main body of my argument here, but I like what I have said so far.


And yes. I totally believe the black and brown folk are getting it worse from that damned algorithm.  I don't think it is deliberate.  But it is hard to criticize historical atrocities committed against not white folk by white folk, in the ordinary way people talk, and not risk setting off the alarm.

Shit I won't say on FB even if the bitch unfriended me already.

 No loss, really.  I knew she was a Republican.  But she did not engage me in my sort of constant posts calling them evil, and racist, and shit.  But apparently she was reading all the posts. Took them all personally.  Particularly, the all Republicans are racists, stuff.  We will get back to that.  But first!


What triggered her, was my remark that Rush Limbaugh did more harm to the USA than OBL.


And I did not flesh that out.  I did not even go on about how Rush normalized the grotesque as a if not the defining value of the GOP.  How grotesque Rush directly lead to grotesque DJT.

And she unfriended me before. I made the direct association between him and the cancer that killed him.


So the racism thing.  I say sometimes but not always.  If one is a Republican.  And one doesn't like it when people like me paint all Republicans as racists?  Don't get mad at me.  Get off your ass and work on purging your party of the racists.  Don't support the racists.  Don't excuse the racists.  Don't defend the racists.


Now for the part I will not post on FB.  

(I deleted the original shit.  If ya missed it ya missed it.)

White Pickaninny

 It has been some time, since I was a trend setter;  ahead of the curve.  Like four weeks, maybe?  

Anyway, I propose we dump the word "Karen," at least for the trashy, right wing, entitled skanks  who are at least racist adjacent, if not flaming racist, and instead call them, "White Pickaninnies."

I like this, and think it is fitting for several reasons.  Firstly, because I love the idea of taking a racist slur whites have used against blacks, and repurposing it against white racists. And secondly, because the term pickaninny historically brings to mind an exaggerated image.  As originally employed, in some instances, as there is a difference when young black children were called pickaninnies, as opposed to the caricatures found in print and other media, white racist Karens are actual living, breathing caricatures.  They are grotesques of their own making and choosing.  

I have been thinking about this topic, racist Karens, as I am feeling the weight of 21st Century Denialist Racism.  All them bitches who deny America is still racist?  All them bitches still fighting against CRT and 1619 Project, and who basically want to preserve white supremacy?  Fuck them!  Particularly fuck the ones in denial of their own flaming racist thoughts, beliefs, and words.  

I know enough about Psychology to know that people can be really good at denial.  But I am fucking sick of it.  I am fucking sick of being a Black/Brown in America, and being expected to treat, if only slightly, watered down racism as if it were a mere different POV.

I am so sick of that shit!

Anyway.  Some famous racist Republican died today.  Fuck him too.

I know I have no magical powers!




I can't stop white racist people who do not appreciate how racist they are, from thinking and expressing what are flat out racist ideas.  I can't even get them to consider that they make themselves look totally flaming racist, when ever they speak about anything having to do with black or brown folk.

Then again, hardly anyone sees my blog.  But me, I, yours truly is not the real point.  As because there is so much published advice of the same meaning out there, be it in long form non fiction book, essays, articles, videos and interview segments  on TV that there is no excuse.  There literally is no rational excuse at all, at least, why these white racist people who do not appreciate how racist they are, and that they make themselves look totally flaming racist, when ever they speak about anything having to do with black or brown folk.

Well there is Dunning-Kruger.  But Dunning-Kruger is a perfectly rational theory that explains totally irrational thinking.

So comes the real question.  How many of them are merely pretending not to appreciate how racist they are?
