Snowflakes on Parade

These delicates can’t be allowed to pick out a costume for Halloween lest they run afoul of some PC regulation concerning ‘Cultural Appropriation’. Why don’t they all co nekkid with their naughty bits flopping about in the chilly night time air. But then someone will accuse them of appropriating human culture. That would be true of course.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear

Throughout October, universities across the nation are warning their students against Halloween costumes some consider offensive.

Gone are the days when college students could dress up without fear of being reported to a bias response team. In recent years, more and more campus leaders have made it their mission to warn students what not to wear.

Fliers, memos, workshops and more impart the admonitions.

“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”

“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students. [snip]

At a “Conversation Circle” at Princeton University this Sunday, students will “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

With this last we believe we’re into the area of felonious costumes.

If these fragile individuals need help with ideas, why not go forth gowned as faculty members, Pelosi, Shumer or Hollywood celebs in sumptuary raiment. A campus full of Harvey costumes should bring massive chuckles.

Growing old in America

 

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . .

  • I was born white, which now,whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
  • I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
  • I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.
  • I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
  • I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
  • I am older than 50, which makes me a bit less than I used to be.
  • I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
  • I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
  • I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
  • I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
  • I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.
  • Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends a “basket of deplorables”.
  • I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found challenges in my life and my thinking!
  • I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
  • Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!
  • And if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with. I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white privilege supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and LBJ’s War On Poverty in January 1964, and the adoption of the Progressive Democratic Party’s BIG government dependency.

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault.  

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve been doing that since 1964, to the tune of $22,000,000,000,000 (that’s trillion with a T). Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions.

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crimes in America (mostly against each other). Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard University research said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little to no crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community.

I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing.

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America, you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it.  

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of social justice and cultural Marxism by our public education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it.

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played.  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then.  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property.  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Progressive Democratic-Socialist- Communist-Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is exactly what the Progressive Democratic Party Leftists want and encourage.

Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
