You may have seen the phrase “decolonize your bookshelf” floating around. In essence, it is about actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long.
If you are white, take a moment to examine your bookshelf. What do you see? What books and authors have you allowed to influence your worldview, and how you process the issues of racism and prejudice toward the disenfranchised?
This racist drivel is from taxpayer-supported NPR.org. Several thoughts occur to me:
- Note how only whites have to examine our bookshelves? I have to assume that’s because blacks don’t have bookshelves seeing as how they are functionally illiterate.
- How DO I process ‘racism’? I don’t. It’s not an issue unless YOU are a racist and are constantly bringing it up. Hint: identity politics is nothing BUT racism.
- Disenfranchised? Again, a straw-man argument. If YOU are ‘disenfranchised’ you have done it to yourself. Your choices do that. Ditto for ‘marginalized’.
I refuse to examine my bookshelves, except to add to them using books most likely written by dead white males.

“The shut down and slowed down packing plants are the reason. I don’t know what to do to get them back online. Some workers aren’t coming in. Some truly are sick. To maintain social distancing they had to “slow the chain”.
Because our ‘betters’ have no idea of how things like food get to the grocery stores. Because our ‘betters’ overreact to everything, like a new strain of flu from China.
Because our ‘betters’ are stupid. Because our ‘betters’ are liberals who think they are God.

The Catholic Church has an homosexual infiltration problem. The public schools have a Democrat, NEA, AND homosexual problem.
For most of America, September 17 was “Constitution Day.” For progressives, it was a day to launch a multi-pronged assault on the Constitution.
For the last century, a left-leaning Supreme Court has systematically and methodically changed our nation’s fundamental nature. They have removed Christianity from the public square, found a hidden right to abortion, expanded the regulatory state, approved disparate impact theory, authorized gay marriage, and given us a whole host of other decisions that, in ways both large and small, have gone beyond jurisprudence and, instead, fashioned new laws and amended the Constitution — acts beyond the Court’s powers, both statutory and Constitutional.

MSNBC analyst Frank Figliuzzi drew a numerical connection on Monday between neo-Naziism and the Trump administration’s decision to fly flags at half-mast until Aug. 8 in honor of the victims of a pair of mass shootings.
“The numbers 88 are very significant in neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter ‘H’ is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them the numbers 8-8 together stand for ‘Heil Hitler.’ So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8.”
“No one is thinking about this,” he added.
That’s because we aren’t deranged moonbats. Meanwhile, in the sidebar over at Ace of Spades somebody commented:
Someone should tweet the @FBI and ask them to endorse or refute the theory of their former head of the Counterintelligence Division that the date of August 8th is automatically Nazi numerology, even when it just appears on the calendar.
The FBI should also be apprised that their credibility with future juries depends on their answer on this. If FBI “experts” believe in secret “numerologies” involving August 8, then I think juries can pretty much discount any testimony from FBI agents or “experts” going forward.
They might also want to tell us how many chiefs they have who are around-the-bend conspiracy theorists. Is that a prerequisite to be head of a division in the FBI, or will they train you to be a conspiracy theorist if you don’t have experience already?
Best and the brightest, everyone. Best and the brightest!

People have known throughout history that some people for whatever reason have an attraction to the same sex, women who have such an attraction are called “lesbians” People, even those who disapprove of this preference understand that these lesbians prefer the sexual company of other women. but liberal say that if a man declares himself a woman and a lesbian that any lesbian who reject them is a bigot.
Democrats… the normalphobes.

No, Jeffrey Epstein is not a pedophile. This is important. If conservatives keep misidentifying him as one, I fear some unfortunate consequences.
Pedophiles desire pre-pubertal children. This is not Epstein’s kink; he quite obviously likes his girls to be as young as possible but fully nubile. The correct term for this is “ephebophile”, and being clear about the distinction matters. I’ll explain why.
The Left has a long history of triggering conservatives into self-discrediting moral panics (“Rock and roll is the devil’s music”). It also has a strong internal contingent that would like to normalize pedophilia. I mean the real thing, not Epstein’s creepy ephebophilia.
Homosexual pedophiles have been biding their time in order to get adult-on-adult homosexuality fully normalized as battlespace prep, but you see a few trial balloons go up occasionally in places like Salon. The last round of this was interrupted by the need to take down Milo Yiannopolous, but the internal logic of left-wing sexual liberationism always demands new ways to freak out the normals, and the pedophiles are more than willing to be next up in satisfying that perpetual demand.

Amy Butler managed to get fired for degeneracy and greed, despite being popular on the “Christian” Left.
The sex toy incident was apparently the final straw amid mounting concerns from the Riverside Church Council about Butler’s judgment, as she was seeking a $100,000 raise. She has a $250,000 annual salary and $8,000 monthly housing allowance — on top of other cushy benefits.
Obviously this is not a ‘church.’ A quarter-million salary AND 8k housing allowance? So much for helping the poor…

We are in fact a divided nation, the mature and immature, the civil and uncivil, the decent and the indecent. We are divided between those who love this country and those who hate it. Our leftists are Marxist globalists who want to see America destroyed or at least transformed from the inside, as Khrushchev predicted fifty years ago that it would be. The Marxists have won in academe. They have won over the Democratic Party completely. Pelosi, Schumer, et al. are on board with flooding the U.S. with illiterate migrants, numbers of them criminals, to satisfy their anti-American ideology. They and their agenda should be shunned by all Americans with a modicum of common sense.
This has held up well!

Liberalism is fundamentally about feelings rather than thoughts. Also the left focuses on intentions, the right focuses on results and the ways by which results are achieved.
An advantage of making intentions your goal is that once you choose and announce them, you’re done. No need to follow up to see if your intentions were realized. No need to consider second or third order effects.
Leftism is about force, conservatism is about freedom and voluntary exchange. The use of force needs no theory or ideology. Anyone willing to rely on force to accomplish his or her objectives doesn’t really need to understand how the world works.

I can see that I will not be renewing my blog with WordPress. I do not support such deplatforming bullies. Notice that WordPress doesn’t actually mention what ‘terms of service’ justified the silencing of a perfectly decent blog. This is a violation of the 1st Amendment. But Islam and moslems don’t respect the Constitution. Neither does WordPress.
WordPress, thy name is ‘Dhimmitude.’
variants: or less commonly zimmi
plural dhimmis or dhimmi also zimmis or zimmi
: a person living in a region overrun by Muslim conquest who was accorded a protected status and allowed to retain his or her original faith
Allowed to ‘retain’ but not allowed to practice his original faith. Or, as WordPress demonstrates, not allowed to engage in his original freedoms.
The WordPress ‘terms of service’ appear to include protecting the murderous followers of the pedophile prophet from criticism. WordPress demonstrates exactly the ‘creeping sharia’ documented by the blog they silenced. Well done, WordPress.
See, if you advocate locking up teenage dopeheads as juvenile delinquents, you’re racist or something. If you advocate locking up these maladjusted weirdos in psychiatric wards, you’re stigmatizing mental illness. Disapproving of sexual perversion makes you guilty of transphobia. Instead, now everyone is required to celebrate diversity and inclusion, which means keeping the drug-addled misfits in public high school and interpreting their unpopularity as “bullying,” because how dare your normal teenager not want to hang out with a couple of losers like this? And then one day, the freaks decide it would be really cool to shoot up the school more or less randomly. which then becomes an argument for (a) gun control and (b) more “anti-bullying” policies to protect deranged misfits from social disapproval.
