Current State of Political Debate

Thanks to the liberal establishment’s appalling success at passing off Black Lives Matter as the good guys, you don’t win arguments in this country by making an intelligent point. You win with vandalism, violence, and intimidation. Or at least, that’s the strategy the Left has openly embraced. We’ll see if the country has rotted to the point that it pays off in the long run. November will provide an indication.

For now, this is what political disputation boils down to in the erstwhile Land of the Free (sorry about the language):

Thankfully, the patriot offering the merchandise escaped physical injury. But the point was made that next time she might not be as lucky.

Information Liberation dials up the sarcasm:

As BLM and the media have informed us, Black folks are terrified that White people and especially White cops will shoot them at any moment for the slightest misstep.

As videos like these and hundreds of others make clear, they have to live their lives in constant fear because they can be shot at any second just for buying skittles or going for a jog.

Needless to say, BLM foot soldiers do not feel the least bit threatened by the police. That’s why they behave like savages. But it doesn’t matter that their ideology is patently fake, so long as they can achieve political power by clubbing people over the head with it, with the eager assistance of the liberal elite.

White Privilege and Nonwhite Privilege

When liberal elitists like Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo denounce poor and working-class whites for having “white privilege” …

… they reinforce something that actually exists, namely nonwhite privilege.

Nonwhite privilege manifests itself mainly as an imperious attitude that comes from being designated by the ruling class as “oppressed” and therefore more equal than the other animals on the farm. Its application in daily life looks something like this:

A more effective means of stoking racial animosity than promoting nonwhite privilege would be hard to imagine. The media and education establishments do this so methodically that it must be part of a conscious political strategy.

American Psychological Association Goes Full Moonbat on Race

As Robert Conquest observed, “Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.” Then it becomes ever more left-wing, until it has been subverted to the point of absurdity. The American Psychological Association is a case in point.

“First, do no harm” has been discarded. Rather than attempt to cure diseases, the APA deliberately spreads a disease that has been tearing our country apart, reducing neighborhoods to ruin, and terrorizing normal citizens — namely, Black Lives Matter moonbattery:

Police brutality may be what sparked a wave of protests across the United States and beyond, but the “racism pandemic”—a term used by APA President Sandra Shullman, PhD, for the ongoing harm caused by racism—runs far deeper. Today’s inequities, psychologists say, are deeply rooted in our past, and the status quo is no longer acceptable. “Every institution in America is born from the blood of white supremacist ideology and capitalism—and that’s the disease,” says Theopia Jackson, PhD, president of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi).

Note that capitalism is thrown in with “white supremacist ideology” (previously known as “American individualism”). Pushing Marxism under cover of Afrocentric crybullying is classic Black Lives Matter.

APA offers a series of grants and fellowships for psychologists from ethnic- and racial-minority groups and convenes the Council of National Psychology Associations for the Advancement of Ethnic Minority Interests, which promotes career development for psychologists of color and addresses other equity issues.

If APA apparatchiks really want to understand racism in this country, they should ask themselves why an Association of White Psychologists would be unthinkable, and why no one would be permitted to explicitly promote the careers of Caucasians.

Speaking of actual racism:

“It’s important for APA to be an example of how an organization can look at itself internally,” said organizational psychologist Catherine Learmonth, PsyD…

That should involve discussions among members about white privilege and white fragility…

Rather than heal neurosis, the APA nurtures it, by encouraging people to despise themselves for their race if they are white, and to pity themselves as helpless victims if they aren’t.

This isn’t the first time the organization has abetted an illness it should be trying to cure:

The APA has also been vocal in recent months on transgender issues, recommending puberty-blocking hormones for children with gender dysphoria in order to “buy younger children time to explore their gender identities” and prescribing surgery or hormones to masculinize or feminize the bodies of adolescents who have decided they identify as transgender.

What moonbattery infiltrates, it renders not merely useless but noxious.

Jessica Krug, Racial Impostor

If anything gives the lie to the liberal oppression narrative even more than mass Third World immigration to the USA, it is racial impostors. Democrats and their media mouthpieces weep that minorities — especially blacks — are oppressed. Yet nonwhites want to live here, and whites pretend to be nonwhite. This is because “oppressed” is Orwellian for “privileged.” The privilege can be exploited to build a career, as Rachel Dolezal demonstrated by becoming a NAACP chapter president and university instructor of Africana studies. Jessica Krug joins her in the Hall of Shame:

Despite publicly living as a black woman for years, George Washington University associate professor Jessica Krug admitted Thursday that she is actually a “culture leech” — who is white.

Krug took to Medium to confess her scam.

“To an escalating degree over my adult life, I have eschewed my lived experience as a white Jewish child in suburban Kansas City under various assumed identities within a Blackness that I had no right to claim: first North African Blackness, then US rooted Blackness, then Caribbean rooted Bronx Blackness,” she says. “I have built my life on a violent anti-Black lie, and I have lied in every breath I have taken.”

She has renounced her fraud, but she still needs to disavow her fraudulent leftist ideology, to judge by her misuse of the word “violent.”

Krug pronounces upon herself the harshest possible sentence in the world of tolerant liberals:

“You should absolutely cancel me, and I absolutely cancel myself.”

Why drop the deception now, at the height of Black Lives Matter mania?

A former friend of Krug’s and another professor charged that Krug only came forward because she had been found out and had started being confronted by others in her field.

At least she came clean when exposed. Evidently Caucasian Black Lives Matter agitator Shaun King remains in denial. So does Elizabeth Warren, who climbed high on the career ladder by pretending to be nonwhite, then claimed that the DNA test proving her to be as white as she looks actually qualifies her as an Indian.

Krug, who has an apartment in Harlem, allegedly once went on a profanity-laden tirade at a City Council hearing, in which she spoke in a street accent and blasted New Yorkers who talked about the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Krug isn’t much phonier than anyone else who has climbed atop Floyd’s fentanyl-saturated corpse to denounce society.

Reparations Move Forward in California

They say that as goes California, so goes the country. This means that racial division could soon be thrown into overdrive by the federal government imposing the transfer of wealth on an explicitly racial basis:

State senators in California overwhelmingly supported setting up a task force to study potential reparations for slavery in a bipartisan vote Saturday. …

The 33-3 Senate vote came … as protests against racial injustice continued across the country.

That’s one way to respond to vicious riots that have destroyed any number of lives, though certainly not a way that will discourage future violence.

States like Texas, New York and Vermont have done similar studies in the last two years, finding that along with cash, reparations could mean housing assistance, lower tuition, forgiving student loans, job training, community investments, etc.

Much of this is already provided disproportionately to blacks. But the racial favoritism is not yet explicit, except with programs like Affirmative Action. Democrats plan to make our racial caste system official.

Imagine a white cop working long dangerous shifts as he struggles to support his family, only to have part of his working class income confiscated to be bestowed upon zillionaires like Ice Cube and Will Smith on the basis of race. That would be what they call that racial “justice.”

Legitimate grievances have been fading into the past for decades. Yet the racial grievance crybulling only escalates. That’s because there is money in it, in addition to power and privilege.

Sociology Professor Proves That Disapproving of Obesity = Racism

According to the prevailing ideology, pretty much everything centers on the oppression of blacks, so it should surprise no one that Sabrina Strings, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine, has been able to prove that fat-shaming is racist:

“[O]ne of the things that the colonists believed was that Black people were inherently more sensuous, that people love sex and they love food, and so the idea was that … Black people were inherently obese, because they lack self-control. And of course, self-control and rationality, after the Enlightenment, were characteristics that were deemed integral to Whiteness.”

As usual, Christianity shares in the blame:

“What they wanted to do was show that they were both morally upright and racially proper, in the way in which they ate and how they maintained their figures,” said Strings. “And so, they were very clear that to be of the elite race and to be a Christian peoples means that you need to show what they would call temperance in the face of food — or restraint is the way we might think of today — because if you did not show temperance, that was evidence that you were one of the savages, and also, that you were un-Christian.”

Keeping your weight under control is a consequence of racism and Christianity, the two most evil forces known to academia. Therefore, obesity is to be celebrated, regardless of the disastrous health effects.

The science is settled:

“We cannot deny the fact that fat-phobia is rooted in anti-Blackness. That’s simply an historical reality,” she said. “Today, when people talk about it, they often claim that they don’t intend to be anti-Black … they don’t intend all of these negative associations, and yet they exist already, so whenever people start trafficking in fat-phobia, they are inherently picking up on these historical forms of oppression.”

To think it is inadvisable to lose control of your weight is racist. Revise your opinions as necessary or prepared to be canceled as a thought criminal.

PBS Kiddie Show Arthur Injects Corrosive Race Propaganda

Racist “antiracist” ideology pervades the country. People widely believe that blacks suffer systemic oppression at the hands of malevolent whites.

There was no need to prove that Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd out of racial animus. Given the context of expectations, the infamous video spoke for itself.

Evidence does not support antiracist ideology. Bigotry against blacks is possibly the strongest taboo in modern American culture. Grievances need to be excavated from the distant past.

Yet antiracist ideology has been tearing the country apart, serving as a pretext for looting and mayhem on a massive scale and turning Americans ferociously against each other. Why do so many buy into it?

Because it is systematically installed before we are old enough to question it, then relentlessly reinforced through propaganda.

This gives an idea of how early they start with the brainwashing:

PBS children’s show Arthur is pumping out taxpayer-funded propaganda depicting the United States as a racist country where unjustified police brutality against black Americans is an aspect of everyday life.

Arthur the aardvark and his friend Buster the rabbit discuss the George Floyd video, though not by name.

Gasps Buster:

“I can’t believe someone would be hurt like that, just because they’re black.”

Why should he believe it? To suggest that the police treat random black people the way a rogue cop treats a 6’6″ 243-lb criminal resisting arrest would be preposterous. We don’t even know that race had anything to do with it — and yet:

“Buster, it happens everywhere!” Arthur responds.

It does not. In the real world, police are more likely to shoot whites than blacks.

Then the school lunch lady Mrs MacGrady comes in to shift the propaganda into overdrive. The likely effect is for black kids to come away paranoid and aggrieved, and for white kids to feel guilty or angry at their own kind. Neither are left better off for it.

Judge for yourself whether this is a productive way to spend taxpayer money:

Antiracist Racists

Racism is a problem in America because moonbats make it a problem. Virtually nonexistent white supremacists aren’t oppressing blacks; “antiracist” moonbats are. Larry Elder is right when he says, “The Left does not want a color-blind society. They don’t really want the vision of MLK. They want a color-coordinated society, as long as they’re the ones who are going to coordinate it.” By “coordinate,” he means “rule.”

John Stossel explains how antiracist racists hurt black:

The victims of antiracist racists include all blacks, all whites, and everyone else. Their ideology is a war on the individual, and we are all individuals.
