Reparations Destroyed in Under 1 Minute

One of the most pernicious manifestations of the critical race theory ideology of our liberal ruling class is the call for “reparations” — direct cash payments to blacks to reward them for the oppression of their ancestors 2 centuries ago. The main purpose is to further inflame racial tensions, which Democrats exploit to maintain power.

The injustice against every taxpayer who isn’t black is obvious. But reparations are a bad idea even for the supposed beneficiaries — i.e., blacks, who once again are encouraged to nurture poisonous resentment and to see themselves as entitled victims instead of independent agents deserving of respect rather than pity.

This young lady packs more sense into 1 minute than you will hear from the liberal establishment in a lifetime:

Just one caveat. She says that some blacks don’t have ancestors who were slaves. True enough, many American blacks don’t have ancestors who were slaves in this country. But it is likely that everyone on earth has ancestors who were slaves somewhere else.

Ibram X. Kendi Tries and Fails to Define Racism

Ibram X. Kendi has become wealthy and powerful by denouncing the racism of Caucasians. Public schools pay Kendi as much as $333 per minute to discuss the topic. Jack Dorsey of the Big Tech Thought Police gave him $10 million to showcase his own wokeness. Yet Kendi cannot even define what the word “racism” means. His lame attempt would serve as a good example if you want to explain to a 6-year-old what the term “circular definition” means:

“So racism, I would define it as a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”

Seriously, that’s his definition. He could have saved himself a few syllables by just saying, “Racism is that which is racist.”

As you can see, the pretentious and not very bright Ibram X. Kendi is a bad joke. That makes him suited for his prominent role in America’s self-inflicted demise. The country is choking to death on the bad joke that is modern liberalism.

Construction Cable With American Flag Denounced as Noose

If garage door pulls and discarded parts of swing sets can be declared nooses so as to prop up the phony critical race theory narrative, why not a steel loop in a construction cable?

The College Fix reports:

A construction company building a parking structure at Central Connecticut State University had hoisted an American flag at the end of one of its steel cable loops to mark Memorial Day — but a complaint that the cable was a noose prompted campus officials to apologize and pledge to take down the cable as soon as possible.

The proximity to Old Glory — flag of a systemically racist nation — must have clued in social justice warriors that the loop in the cable was actually a noose. Nooses and things that vaguely resemble nooses can have but one purpose: to oppress blacks.

CCSU President Zulma Toro admitted that it was “not a noose but a standard steel cable loop hanging from a crane.” Being an educrat, she denounced it as racist anyway.

“Quite frankly, I think it is reckless and tone deaf behavior,” Toro [squawked] in her email to the campus. “We have been in contact with the construction company and demanded that the cable be lowered tonight. We have a team on site tonight monitoring the situation.”

Media attention quickly stoked the loop in the cable into a crisis. On Sunday morning, as the cable continued to traumatize sacred persons of oppressedness,

[A] beleaguered-looking campus administrator, interim Vice President for Student Affairs John Tully, explained to a local news television station that it was difficult to find someone who could safely operate the crane at such short notice on a holiday weekend to get the cable loop down.

They should have contacted Lloyd Austin. Given the politics and priorities of our moonbat Secretary of Defense, he would have called in an air strike.

Professional crybullies of color were quick to capitalize:

Ronald Davis, president of the New Britain NAACP, told FOX 61 that “Regardless of what someone else says about that, what I see, as a black man? That’s a noose. Period. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Take it down.”

NAACP militants don’t worry about beclowning themselves. Not even their most moronic paranoid delusions could make them look half as ridiculous as the cringing white liberals who scurry to obey their commands.

There are actually several cables hanging from the crane that terminate in loops, but apparently only the cable with the American flag on it triggers snowflakes.

Second Amendment Denounced as Racist

That which leftists aim to destroy, they pretend is “racist.” Our fundamental, constitutionally guaranteed right of self-defense is in their crosshairs.

From a prominent mouthpiece of the ruling Democrat Party, CNN:

In “The Second: Race and Guns in a Fatally Unequal America,” Carol Anderson argues that the Second Amendment is not about guns — it’s about anti-Blackness. She says it “was designed and has consistently been constructed to keep African-Americans powerless and vulnerable.”

Everything everywhere has always centered on the sacred oppressedness of blacks. Anything past or present that does not advance Black Lives Matter ideology is “about anti-Blackness.” The morbid self-absorption of black supremacists encompasses all. There is not a piece of frozen detritus drifting across the far side of the galaxy that is not either woke or racist.

Carol Anderson is not merely a Person of Blackness, but Chairmoonbat of the African American Studies Department at Emory University, so it would be racist not to treat her pernicious and moronic opinions with reverence.

She says some early lawmakers who supported the Second Amendment were more worried about armed Blacks than British redcoats.

It is doubtful that she explains up to 700,000 Americans dying to end slavery, an institution that had existed throughout the world since before recorded history and that involved all racial groups, not just blacks.

Since leftists blot out anything that does not facilitate their ongoing power grab, she is also unlikely to have anything to say on this topic:

[T]he NRA has historically opposed laws that were virtually tailor made to deny African-Americans the right to keep and bear arms. Many gun control laws to this day stem from the KKK’s fear of armed and independent minorities.

These laws were imposed by the Democratic Party, which Anderson’s propaganda serves far more than it serves blacks.

Wake Forest to Rename Renamed Building

Where moonbattery prevails, the renaming never stops, because few names can be woke enough to avoid offending the perpetually offended. Woke Forest University went only 19 days after renaming a building before agreeing to rename it again:

On May 7, Wake Forest University announced it would rename its Wingate Hall to “May 7, 1860 Hall” to mark the date it sold 16 slaves about 161 years ago.

“May 7, 1860, is the date Wake Forest sold at auction 16 human beings that a slave-owning benefactor bequeathed to the institution through his estate. By renaming this building, the University acknowledges participation in slavery, recognizes this aspect of its history and remembers those who labored at the institution against their will,” the university said in a news release at the time.

It seems our entire civilization now revolves around slavery, which existed throughout the world for millennia, and ended in this country going on 2 centuries ago.

Washington Manly Wingate, fourth president of Wake Forest, had to be erased for defending slavery in the mid-19th century. Wingate has been canceled, because blacks find him offensive.

But the new name offended blacks too. So the educrats obediently agreed to rename the building again. At last word, they were trying to come up with something blacks will tolerate. George Floyd Hall and Huey Newton Hall have already been suggested.

What fun it would be to be an aggrieved black student. You could proclaim that you find it traumatic and offensive that educrats don’t wear their underpants on their heads whenever they appear in public, and threaten to riot if they don’t comply.

Amazon Construction Site Shut Down Over Noose Hysteria

The Empire State Building was constructed in 410 days back in 1930–1931. Imagine trying to get that done now in the midst of nonsense like this:

Amazon is halting construction at a facility in Windsor, Connecticut after workers discovered the seventh case of a “rope which could be interpreted as a noose” at the site.

I hope Islamic terrorists don’t find out about this. They could wreak havoc if they knew how easy it is to shut down American construction sites. Maybe an Amazon competitor like Walmart is behind it.

“I enjoy coming to work and doing my job, but I don’t enjoy experiencing racism on the job,” a worker at the site told local news station FOX61.

Nooses have been used for as long as anyone can remember to hang people of every racial background. But since only black lives matter these days, nooses — and garage door pulls or parts of swing sets that may vaguely resemble nooses — are considered to be inherently racist against blacks. Due to hysterical eagerness to pander to their delusional yet weaponized sense of persecution, the sight of a noose is literally regarded as a federal case:

“The implications of a hanging noose anywhere are unacceptable,” FBI special agent in charge David Sundberg said in a statement. “We stand united with all our law enforcement partners across the state in rooting out and applying the rule of law to any individual or group perpetuating hateful ideology and intimidation in our communities.”

A $100,000 award has been offered for information leading to the person responsible for the pieces of rope.

The NAACP was not slow to exploit the situation, seizing on it as proof that America’s most privileged and pampered identity group, high atop the cultural Marxist caste system, is actually oppressed.

Whether the nooses are a prank or a hate hoax is as yet unclear.

CDC Lightening Up on Masks Is Racist

Put that mask back on. The CDC yielded to growing public impatience and lightened up on the pointless mask mandates. But that doesn’t mean that taking your mask off isn’t racist, as the enlightened White House press corps reminds us:

If it prevents even one Person of Color from identifying as oppressed, we need to keep wearing the masks forever.

Billboards Blame Racism for Premature Black Babies

The reason Caucasians need to be displaced into irrelevance through mass immigration and eventually eradicated is that they are responsible for all evil in the world. This includes the premature birth of black babies, according to billboards confronting drivers in San Diego:

Images of the billboards show claims that “Our Black babies are nearly 60% more likely to be premature due to discrimination” and “Racism hurts your baby long before they’re born.”

How racism causes babies to be born prematurely is unclear. Maybe Kelly Trautner could draw on her scientific expertise and explain.

Also unclear is which useless bureaucrats are responsible for wasting money on this pernicious hogwash:

Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer, announced the program earlier this year while speaking on the issue of racism in maternal and neonatal health care, shortly after Democrats took control of the county board.

But the billboards went up sometime in the past two weeks, and while they include logos for county government agencies, the website’s “about” section lacks specific details about who funds and operates the program.

Former San Diego Councilmember Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, is understandably enraged:

“For a public health agency to do this is quite offensive because not only does it create division in the community, racial division, but I would presume that this will discourage African-Americans from trusting their doctors, trusting the health care system, because they’re being told that health care providers in their area are all racists,” he said.

If Democrats actually cared about unborn BIPOCs, they would dam up the river of taxpayer money that flows into Planned Parenthood, since abortion disproportionately dismembers black babies. But this is not about the health of unborn babies; it is about evangelizing for our official state religion, critical race theory.

Michelle Obama: Police Might Kill My Daughters

Just when I thought nothing could lower my opinion of Michelle Obama, she belligerently whimpers that police might murder her daughters for being black:

Though she says she breathed “a sign of relief” after a jury convicted Derek Chauvin of the murder of George Floyd last month, former First Lady Michelle Obama told CBS This Morning’s Gayle King that “there’s still work to be done” when it comes to social justice.

Sacrificing one white cop to her ideology in a Stalinesque show trial is hardly going to appease Michelle Obama.

Noting that her daughters — 19-year-old Sasha and 22-year-old Malia — both drive, the former first lady said she worries for their safety whenever they leave the house.

“They’re driving, but every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them: The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud. Maybe somebody sees the back of their head and makes an assumption,” she said.

Obama continued: “I, like so many parents of Black kids … the innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts.”

Please. Michelle Obama is not smart enough to have gotten into Princeton if she weren’t black, but she has more than enough cognitive capacity to understand that it is preposterous to suggest the police would kill her privileged daughters — or anyone else — for being black.

She also knows the effect bogus black oppression propaganda is having on the country. After all, it was her community organizer husband who put us on our current path to destruction by exploiting the timely demises of sociopaths Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown for divisive purposes, not to mention the farcical Henry Louis Gates incident.

Covid Isolation as a Reprieve From Racism

By rewarding designated victims for theatrically wallowing in paranoid neuroses and stripping them of the concept of shame, the liberal establishment has reduced them to sniveling wrecks. The New York Times recently featured a letter to the editor from Michael Reid, complete with photos and the following title:

Covid Isolation: A Reprieve From the Stresses of Racism

Reid reports that he feels himself to be oppressed:

I am a Black man weighing in at about 200 pounds. My Afro hairstyle adds a couple of inches to my six-foot frame. Consequently, I stand out in the predominantly white spaces I inhabit.

The term “white spaces” is a clue that we are dealing with someone with advanced training in moonbattery. The white space he inhabits is Santa Fe — not exactly a hotbed of political incorrectness.

The town seems to draw eccentrics. Reid may be one of them.

In the early months of the pandemic, I noticed myself growing more relaxed. I welcomed isolation and the familiarity of my home. My breath grew deeper and more regular. … It felt safe being inside.

But as I begin to venture back outside, now fully vaccinated, I realize that my transition from a normally high level of stress and anxiety was not entirely due to shielding from the coronavirus, but the sudden absence of everyday encounters with racism and microaggression.

No specific microaggressions or encounters with racism are described or even hinted at.

If he wants a permanent reprieve from the stresses of racism, he could always move to a country where blacks have it better than they do in the USA. Problem is, there is no such country.

Who Has Privilege?

“Privilege” is a favorite word of moonbats. It doesn’t mean what they think it means. Adam Carolla understands that the real white privilege is the privilege of not obsessing over privilege. That is, it is the privilege of not being privileged with victim status, which opens doors but undermines the personal responsibility required for meaningful achievement.

Imaginary Noose Menaces Black Professors

Just as Bubba Wallace was beginning to recover from the trauma of seeing a noose pretending to be a garage door pull, another racist noose has been discovered. This time the victims are two black professors at Penn State University. They are too intelligent and highly educated to be fooled by a noose posing as a random piece of rope that had been thrown into a tree.

The College Fix reports:

As reported by the PSU student newspaper Daily Collegian, the professors said the incident was “deeply distressing to them and their family.”

As Persons of Oppressedness, they are the center of the universe, so naturally they assumed that the noose had been “deliberately placed [on the tree] to harass them.”

Penn State President Eric Barron was quick to “express concern and offer support.”

Naturally, the police were called in to investigate.

Alas, according to the professors’ neighbor who was interviewed by police, the “noose” actually was part of a swing set. The neighbors’ kid told police he merely had thrown the rope “into the woods.”

Showcasing the systemic racism that characterizes local law enforcement, Patton, Pennsylvania police chief Tyler Jolley found that there was no malice and no crime had occurred. A kid threw a rope and it happened to land on a tree branch, end of story.

Jolley obviously requires indoctrination in critical race theory. It doesn’t matter that there was no racist intent. The black professors felt themselves to be oppressed by the rope; therefore, the rope is racist. The tree is racist too, and should be chopped down at once in the name of racial justice.

Patrisse Cullors Was Living Large Before George Floyd

Self-avowed “trained Marxist” and Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors was living large even before $millions poured in during the George Floyd riots. She had already been milking oppression for a pretty penny with a racket called Reform LA Jails, which promotes itself as “powered by Black Lives Matter” and which boasts endorsements from such stars of the liberal firmament as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Ilhan Omar, and Maxine Waters.

Daily Caller reports:

A Los Angeles-based jail reform group led by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019, according to campaign finance records reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. …

Guests at the 200-acre resort, where rooms start at $600 a night, have exclusive access to a private five-acre strip of the Malibu coast.

It’s high times all around at Reform LA Jails.

A review of Reform LA Jails’ social media records shows that the group organized multiple events in the Los Angeles area in the second half of 2019, including a party at actress Jane Fonda’s house and a “day party + summit” in Pasadena featuring live music and local artists.

Friends of Cullors make out well too, like her mentor and coauthor of her autobiography, Asha Bandele.

Bandele raked in nearly $260,000 in consulting fees from Reform LA Jails in 2019, representing over 18% of the group’s total spending that year, according to campaign finance records.

That’s even more than Patrisse herself.

Cullors also took in $191,000 in 2019 from Reform LA Jails in 2019, the DCNF previously reported.

You can see why they pretend there is still such a thing as black oppression, even in the country where blacks live better than anywhere else on earth. The charade pays off big time.

Reform LA Jails issued a statement declaring that it is “sexist and racist” to question the mountains of cash Cullors has been raking in.

Canceling Isaac Newton

Progressives are serious about erasing Western Civilization in toto on the grounds that it is racist according to critical race theory. Even Sir Isaac Newton, the Father of Physics, may face cancelation as curricula are decolonized:

Newton has been labelled as a potential beneficiary of “colonial-era activity” in draft plans to “decolonise” the engineering curriculum at Sheffield University. …

The plans form part of the engineering faculty’s efforts to “challenge long-standing conscious and unconscious biases” among students to tackle “Eurocentric” and “white saviour” approaches to science and maths, and promote “inclusive design”.

Maybe Newton can survive total cancelation if they balance his discoveries with the delusional beliefs of dysfunctional savages who lived at the time.

Newton, who lived until 1727, laid the foundations of modern science with his theory of gravity, in the seminal Principia, and theories on light, time, colour and calculus.

His equation for universal gravitation, written in 1666 when he was 23, helped overthrow more than a thousand years of Aristotelian thinking.

Newton ranks among the greatest scientific minds of all time. But he was a white guy, so he will be lucky not to be erased — especially since he lived at a time when Western Civilization was raising the standard of living of the entire world by expanding through colonization.

Newton’s opinion of slavery is both irrelevant and unknown. However, he owned shares in a company that was involved in the slave trade. He lost a fortune when the company tanked, but that hardly expiates the sin of having participated no matter how tangentially in a practice that had been common throughout the world since the beginning of recorded history.

Other shareholders at the time included 462 members of the House of Commons and 100 members of the House of Lords.

Cancel them all!

If the Jacobins running British universities can cancel classical music in the name of critical race theory, they can cancel anything, even Newtonian physics. It would be blasphemy to suggest that the law of gravity might still be in force even after it has been repealed for being racist, because that would imply that the universe is not centered on historic black oppression.

Remarks Toby Young, general secretary of the Free Speech Union,

“Newton famously said, ‘If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.’ Everyone studying maths or engineering deserves to stand on Newton’s shoulders so they, too, can see further, regardless of their ethnicity.”

But the woke don’t need to see. They already know all there is to know. All that remains for them is to eradicate everyone living or dead who might contradict them.
