If you believe that being gay is hardwired and unchangeable but insist that male and female are merely social constructs and that folks can change their “gender identities” from one day to the next, there’s a good chance you are a Progressive Democrat.
The culture of the ghetto opposes everything usually believed proper in an advanced society: high academic standards, equality of opportunity, good English, minimal obscenity, equality under the law, low rates of crime, reasonable self-reliance, freedom of speech. Black culture, intensely racist, encourages none of these and opposes most. It is tribal, based on identity, instead of principle.
The true believer latches onto a cause, in part, because of a deep belief in magic or the super natural…
…The ruling class of America seems to be particularly prone to belief in the supernatural, despite their alleged love of science and reason. You see this in their obsession with racism. Our betters talk about racism as if it is a demon spirit. The anointed, invested with the spirit of good-think, are tasked with exhorting the rest of us to resist the Dark Lord of Racism. You see it in this post the other day by VD, regarding the hysteria at Duke Divinity School. Anathea Portier-Young sounds like she is organizing an exorcism.

The problem is not racist police. It is racist blacks. Whites are not burning the businesses of blacks. White people are not sacking the stores of blacks. White people are not calling for the burning of black suburbs. White people do not play the Knockout game.
We are blaming the victims.
The problem with the class for these kids? It’s just too white.
Humanities 110, covers “Greece and the Ancient Mediterranean,” and it’s a course that introduces students to the works of often celebrated Greco-Roman thinkers such as Aristotle, Ovid, Epictetus, and Plato. You know, some of the greats….who apparently are, racist?
Here’s my problem with this. You whiny brats are going to college to LEARN! Learn about what has been going on for the last 3-4 thousand years. But you are too bigoted and prejudiced to do that. If you don’t want to learn, stay home. It’s obvious that college is useless for you.
There is no such thing as hate speech. There are inflammatory words, there is incitement to riot, there’s shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater, but I submit there is no such thing as hate speech.
There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

For whatever reason, those who regard themselves as liberals are far more given to demonstrating and rioting than conservatives, and far more vulgar. I say “regard themselves as liberals.” Their behavior is opposite to classical liberalism. Vulgarity is not liberalism. Neither is arson. Neither is suppression of free speech. All of these are now the norm on campuses, in the media, among both students and professors. And among the protesters.
There are at least 4 million illegals in California. It requires a special liberal variety of naivete to believe that none of them vote. Even if none do, they are all counted in the census which determines congressional representation and some federal funding allocations. If only citizens were counted, California would have five fewer congressional seats/electoral votes. Those seats would go to, for example, Ohio (2), Michigan, and Pennsylvania. The Democrats who’ve declared Califronia a sanctuary state know exactly what they are doing.
Yes, I know it’s propaganda. But the fact that’s it propaganda actually makes my point. Propaganda’s goal is to reach out to people in the most effective way possible to affect their thinking. In 1944, those who made The Negro Soldier looked at black culture and concluded that the best way to reach out to blacks was to present them, not as hip or cool, not as victims, not as rage-filled revolutionaries, but as people of intellectual and moral substance. Moreover, as I noted above, that approach worked for both blacks and whites who saw the movie.
Falsely accusing mainstream conservatives of being members of the far right is akin to saying the Jews drank the blood of Christian children. Blaming the Berkeley chaos on conservatives is like blaming the Jews for killing Jesus. Such blood libels do not end well for the victims, as charismatic rabble-rousers — whether in the Pale of Settlement or Berkeley, CA — rile up hysterical mobs that scapegoat their misery on the targeted group and ransack on demand.
Rights become malleable or irrelevant in such situations.
The sentiments expressed by the woman in that video are what’s driving much of the opposition to President Trump’s executive orders concerning refugees and immigration from seven selected countries. Many of the protests and riots are not directed against those executive orders. They’re directed against the system of government that produced them (and the executive orders of all President Trump’s predecessors, come to that). They’re directed against the constitutional republic that is the United States of America.
This is the natural end of all radicalism. It is why it appeals to the hive minded. The anti-racists would merrily round up white people and kill them, not for any crimes they committed, but as a form of human sacrifice. That is what the regular executions in Paris became during the Terror. They were purification ceremonies, not punishments for the guilty, but purity was always just one more head in the basket away. It’s the inevitable end of all mass movements when there is no limiting principle.
