Thanks for Undamming the Waters


My gratitude to all who contribute to this effort -- monetarily and domestically.

The money keeps the electricity and coffee flowing; the domestic gifts (new vacuum cleaner and
paper shredder) make the writing flow better. Dust and extraneous paper make me anxious.


I'm low maintenance. Kinda.

(Thanks to BK and to all the rest.)

Black Americans: The Organized Left's Expendable Shock Troops

Baltimore in 2015

Black Americans are, for the most part, a tribe. Some will take offense to that opinion, but if we consider the specifics of our existence as Americans since the practice of enslaving imported Africans became widespread in this hemisphere, we see that there is nothing else that we can be called.
Remember, our ancestors, of various West African tribes, were brought here, sold, and forcibly stripped of their various names, languages, cultures, and religions. That conditioning created a new tribe: The Negro. And even after the abolition of slavery and the extension of legal citizenship to former slaves, Americans of African descent were confined under a societal barrier. A few managed to break through the barrier, but the clear majority remained in the legal, economic, educational social and tribal space into which the US Supreme Court decision Plessy v. Ferguson allowed state and local governments to pen them.
But along came the Civil Rights Era, really beginning in the 1940s and reaching its apex in the 1970s. The Civil Rights and the Voting Rights Acts heralded the end of our status as an insulated tribe within a nation and they harkened back to the objective ideals on which this nation was founded.
These landmarks of legislation stated that we belonged to the American “tribe” all along. But, concurrently, another idea—an opposing ideology--was on the ascent as well: Black Pride.
Pride. When we hear the word, we interpret it in two ways.
So-called benign pride is represented in the following example: we are proud of ourselves when we achieve hard-fought goals -- educational, professional, etc.; we are proud of cherished relatives and friends who do the same.
The not-so-good type of pride is that which the Bible warns against--"the high look," “the up-tilt of the chin.” (But are they any different, really?)
Recall that in the days before the Civil Rights Era, being a black American was a matter of shame and degradation, but Black Pride served to counter that. The concept of Black Pride, while initially beneficial, has, however, brought black Americans from one extreme mindset and deposited us into another. It took us away from the shame of being black and brought us to a place in which no one may criticize a black person who is deemed to be in good standing with the “tribe.”
As a result, many (most?) black Americans have come to believe that blackness is a Leftist way of thinking and a left-leaning political position and, stemming from these ideas, that any black person who deviates from the “black” mindset and political position—a black conservative--isn't “really” black. This idea stems from the Organized Left co-opting Black Pride and using it to keep anger and grievance alive long past their dates of pertinence. The purpose of this tactic is to keep the wedge open between black and white Americans, drive it wider, and produce violence. The ultimate purpose, taken together with many other tactics, is to destroy America.
Pride is what is always has been: inordinate high opinion of one's superiority and goodness; the preening to appear better than on-lookers. (My great-aunt called it “floor-showing.") That we had to use pride, a sin, to “rid” ourselves of the mindset of shame and degradation is the problem. We went too far in the other direction, so far in that direction that the things which are destroying us -- the things which we should be ashamed of -- we have deemed inherent to blackness. We call evil good and good evil. We call the chains of the New Slavery – widespread bastardy, illiteracy, miseducation, self-genocide, etc. -- our due, our rights. And we believe that any of our number who breaks free ideologically and tries to tell their brethren how to be free is a traitor to the tribe. Shame is no longer an option, except as a cudgel for those who point this out. ii
In addition, we deem the New Slavers -- the modern-day Democrat Party and the Organized Left -- to be our friends even though their ideological forebears were always the perpetrators of overt black American slavery and oppression. This sort of tribal pride blocks the ability to see what's right in front of one’s face and the ability to accurately map out the future. It blocks reality.

This has been a decades-long process, concurrent with the Left's agenda to hollow out the institutions of this country.
Through this mindset, black Americans have become the Organized Left's shock troops in latter’s war against America and all too many of us have become the Left's overseers, tasked to force the "deserters" back into formation using the tools of ridicule and shame.
I almost said that the Left was at war with black people, but the Left doesn't esteem blacks enough to deem us as their enemies. We are merely tools to be used for the task at hand -- to foment violent racial discord which will have to be put down using infinitely stronger government violence -- and to be discarded when the task is completed, assuming that there will be any of us left after the New Civil War. 
 And we let ourselves be used for one reason: tribal vengeance; for slavery and for oppression.
For pragmatism’s sake, let’s leave aside morality and conscience for a bit and look at this phenomenon strictly from a strategic point of view. Leaderless families and the resultant black-on-black killings are prevalent among black Americans and directly attributable to the lure of LBJ’s New Slavery Great Society programs. (I contend that prevalence of both leaderless families among black Americans and black-on-black killings are merely the aforementioned shame and degradation of being black re-packaged and internalized. If the leaders of a people—men—don’t love their progeny enough to marry the women who bear their children and/or remain in the lives of those children long enough to bring them into functioning adulthood, why would those children love themselves or those who look like them? And abortion is merely the black female method of black-on-black killing.)
These methods of self-genocide have greatly thinned the “troops.” Taking this into account, one logically concludes that starting a war with a “tribe” that outnumbers us 12-1 and outguns us is pure folly.
It will bring the tribal suicide which we’ve been slowly committing already, to a quick and devastating conclusion.
Turning back to conscience and morality, Jehovah reserves vengeance to Himself, and instructs Jewish and Christian believers to forego it. But even if one does not believe in Him, it’s easy to see the chaos which is nearly always brought about by the unending cycle of human vengeance.
You murder/enslave/oppress mine, then I take vengeance and murder/enslave/oppress yours. Then you take vengeance and murder/enslave/oppress more of mine. Then I …
Is this what you want, Americans? I do not.
We all tend to forget that all human beings are only a few steps away from reverting to the Law of the Jungle. Twentieth-century Europe demonstrated the truth of this and the Muslim world still demonstrates it. Will we Americans—all of us--continue in the way of most of humanity? 

Every day, I pray not.


[i] It’s interesting that Liberals think that black people have a certain way of thinking embedded in the DNA. White supremacists think this as well.
[ii] Until recently, I found it puzzling that some black Liberals hurl all manner of racial epithets at black Conservatives; but now I realize that it’s the pride/shame mindset. Those who use this tactic, however, don’t realize that it’s ineffectual on persons who recognize it for what it is.

Twin Pathologies: White Guilt and White Anger

White Guilt

The phenomenon of white guilt doesn’t merely mean that many white Americans feel guilty for the actions of pre-CRA America.  It also means that all white Americans must pay for the sins of their fathers and pay for a system from which they are perceived to still be the beneficiaries and to still have advantages over all other Americans simply due to being white.  Stemming from that premise, all whites are guilty until proven innocent.
Why are some of you so afraid of being called [labeled] 'racist' when you know that you aren't?
Little did I comprehend the near mortal terror in which the white American of goodwill and good-faith lives at being labeled as racist.  What I discovered was that white Americans are being systematically made to pay if they step outside the ever-shifting boundaries of Political Correctness.  If a given white person does cross one of these boundaries, he/she is “payed-back,”: often by losing employment which is usually accompanied by being driven into bankruptcy.  Therefore, avoiding the label of ‘racist’ (or ‘sexist’ or 'homophobe’) has been a matter of economic survival for white people—especially for heterosexual men.
One person described the labeling process in the following manner: once the white person has been tarnished with the racism label, all the others turn away from him rather than come to his aid—even if they believe he is innocent. The reason? Such aid rendered will result in the defender being tarnished as well.  This makes sense because of the Leftist premise, again: whites are always guilty of racism or are the beneficiaries of it.  Who wouldn’t be afraid knowing the probable outcome? 
(When I suggested that whites en masse refuse to play the racist game, one rocket scientist imagined that I was saying that, because white Americans often wouldn’t fight back when accused of racism, the persecution was their own fault.  This is Rapist “Logic”: “she was asking for it and it was her fault that she was raped because she didn’t fight back.”)
Individual guilt can be a positive thing: a motivator to get clean and make restitution to the wronged party.  (And this Christian asserts that the identity of the wronged party is always the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.)  However, when group guilt is the matter at hand, there exists no actual defendant or plaintiff.  Under such a fantasy, the "plaintiff" can never be made whole and, obviously, the "defendant" can never be made to pay enough.  And that brings us to...
White Anger
People often deny [a better verb, I think: disavow]  white guilt by pointing to its irrationality--"I never owned a slave," "My family got here eighty years after slavery was over." But of course almost nothing having to do with race is rational. That whites are now stigmatized by their race is not poetic justice; it is simply another echo of racism's power to contaminate by mere association.
Persons who use this cogent logic are exactly right; however, they forget about the Leftist premise regarding beneficiaries—that even if, say, a Russian immigrant arrived in 1995, he/she still gets a perceived advantage over the black American, simply by being white.
Where white anger comes in should be obvious to anyone who has been on the receiving end of wrath for acts they have not personally committed, but it goes deeper than that.  The idea of group or generational guilt stems from the Old Testament notion that the “sins of the father are visited upon the son.”  

However, when the Left builds upon this notion, they are forgetting who the visitor—the inflictor—is.  (Hint: it’s someone in whom much of the Left does not believe.)  This should lead us to the conclusion that group or generational guilt is something that the political Left doesn’t believe in either. Sowing the need for it and reaping the resultant white guilt-fear-anger is just a tactic…toward the goal.
The white person who feels unproductive anger at blacks as a group is just as manipulated as the black person who feels this way toward all whites whether either is justified or not.  Why? Because blanket anger toward a group for things which an individual of any group cannot change -- such as skin color or race -- leads to the Vicious Circle of un-washable guilt and anger and it gets the Left what it wants above all else: power.

Recon: What the Enemies of Freedom Have Been Up To

Props to the anonymous genius who created this graphic years ago.
Since its Founding, America has been beset by those who do not understand the Founding Principles, do not know about them or—most pertinently—those who see freedom for all Americans as a threat to their power. The latter have included former colonial powers, domestic federal benches and, sometimes, presidents of the United States. But, most often, this number has included more strategic thinkers—long-term planners with concrete goals. Such are the Organized Left of the last hundred years. Leftists seeks to hinder all forms of freedom and seek to do so via government.

Therefore, even though Jim Crow laws and Northern segregation-by-legislation are considered Right-wing/conservative by sloppy thinkers, they were prime examples of the crystallization of Leftist ideology.

It is no accident that, when the Civil Rights Movement began to achieve success in garnering true freedom for Americans who are black, many of the governmental programs designed to “help” black Americans were implemented. What such programs and policies have actually done: almost succeeded in destroying the black family, created a sense of endless entitlement and stoked continued resentment among blacks for any group that is perceived to have any social and/or economic advantage over them.

This Leftist-indoctrinated mindset--very efficiently put forth by the NEA-controlled public education systems--has created the notion in black Americans that government can and should take the place of family; that dependence on government is our right. And it has inculcated the twin notions that any white American who wants his fellow citizen who are black to be free from government is a racist and that any black American who wants to be free from government is a self-hating Uncle Tom (sic)/Aunt Jemima and is a traitor to all "real" blacks. (I call it the 'New Slavery' because it has produced emotional and intellectual vassals, unable to step outside of predetermined mental boundaries.)

Thus, do even black Americans with everything going for them—talent, drive and extraordinary opportunity--believe that white people still have a boot on their necks and believe that they are entitled to vengeance. Thus, did the first black American Attorney General of the United States babble about white Americans being a nation of cowards with regard to discussions of race and within the space of months officially excuse a blatant, well-documented violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by members of the New Black Panther Party.

And it should be no surprise that the same political party which has overtly and covertly hindered the freedom of black Americans for a good 150 years has become the official platform for the New Slavery. The difference in the 21st century: The Slave Masters are ready to branch out “business” -- to include all Americans, regardless of race or color.

The repeated stoking of racial anger and vengeance is a tool—a tactic--of the organized Left. Leftists seek to divide groups and stir up anger and, ultimately, violence--so that a leftist-controlled government can come in and crack down on all freedoms in the name of order and set into overdrive their well-laid plans to fundamentally transform the United States of America into the Socialist Utopia of Karl Marx's vision.

Neat Trick

My first one act play.

******

Democrat: You’re a racist!
Republican: No, I'm not!

Democrat: Then why’d you bring up the topic of race?
Republican: I didn’t bring up the topic, you did!

Democrat: That’s because I knew you were thinking about it.
Republican: Wait. You just accused me of bring up the race topic. You lied.

Democrat: Your racism got me so angry that I got confused.
Republican: That seems to be a chronic problem for you.

Democrat: See? You're a racist!
Republican: What did that have to do with race?

Democrat: You think black people are confused!
Republican: But, but, but…you’re white!

Democrat: I’m going to tell everybody how racist you Republicans are and I'm going to vote for [insert Democrat dejour here] because of you racists!
Republican:

The End

Why We Black Conservatives Don't Try to Convert Our Families

Agree or disagree, if you like the writing quality, scroll down and donate! Thanks.


An appearance by Omarosa Manigault, an invited speaker at a conference conducted by National Association of Black Journalists, predictably devolved.
A panel discussion featuring White House aide Omarosa Manigault and relatives of two young black men killed by police degenerated into a tense, chaotic mess when audience members jeered and shouted at Manigault for her answers to questions. 
It reminded me of observations I made three years ago. Here is a partial repost, slightly edited:

*****

After waking this morning [Ed: three years ago], I got up, washed my face, brushed my teeth, threw on some clothes, and, without breakfast or coffee, went to get my hair cut (shaved). Black barbershops have a justifiable reputation for being places where real talk occurs and, sometimes, where shouting and anger occur. Being un-caffeinated, I was in no mood to get into any conversation; much less, a political one with a bunch of liberals, but my barber alerted the room that I was a Republican. So, the game was afoot.

Many wonder why black conservatives refuse to talk to black liberals about conservatism. It’s simply this: they won’t STFU long enough to let you complete an idea. In addition, having to, once again, listen to able-bodied, able-minded, working, responsible, black adults go on about what the “white man” owes “us,” made me want to scream, though I restrained myself.

Being out-numbered 3-1, being talked over multiple times, being insulted more than once, not being allowed to answer proffered questions, and having my actual answers ignored, at some point–out of frustration–I let the “conversation” go. However, I was able to put forth a couple of ideas which I had not completely articulated in the past. One follows in a longer form than I was able to get out earlier today.

Black people—not just those who are American—view white people in the same manner that anti-theists view God. Anti-theists are different from atheists. Even though anti-theists deny God’s existence with their mouths and keyboards, they believe in Him…and they hate Him.

Many black people have a similar view of white people: they view all of you as their hated masters–yes, still, in 2014—but their masters, nonetheless. Moreover, as our masters, it is your duty to feed, clothe, and house us; and to give us anything else we ask of you.

As history shows, before the Civil Rights Era, most black Americans were Republicans; now, because of well-crafted strategy implemented by LBJ, et al., most are Democrats. That strategy is based on the real slavery mindset: that whoever provides the most things—whoever is the most generous patron to black people–is a friend to black people. LBJ knew this; therefore, he strove to transform his party’s image into that of the good and generous patron.

Patron: 5 : a master in ancient times who freed his slave but retained some rights over him

Even though the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 respectively disallowed patronage and de jure serfdom, the mindset remains embedded in the progeny of the “former” slaves/serfs. Thus, since the CRA, most black Americans have given their allegiance to the Democrat Party and, because of the mindset, they have certain expectations of white Americans—those expected of a patron.

From that notion comes this one: many black liberals believe that black conservatives give their allegiance to the Republican Party for the exact same reason, and that they are, therefore, sell-outs.

Note that, to black liberals, even politics always involves some imagined sale of black persons.They are unable to view white persons outside of the master/patron/domination paradigm and cannot envision any relationship between black persons and white persons outside of that perspective. Somebody has to be on top. And, in light of our past[i] and our indoctrinated and unacknowledged feelings of inferiority, most black liberals believe it will be you, my white friends.

Most black conservatives have freed themselves from this mindset, but, like all long-term indoctrination, it remains insidious.

Therefore, I conclude this: until the majority of black people get white people out of their heads and begin view you as equals, the shouts of racism will continue, as will the shout-down of the truly emancipated. Freedom begins inside.

[i] The history of enslavement of black Africans begins well before the European and American involvement therein.

Back Side (UPDATE)

As most readers know, I've been looking for an employer and it has been tough sledding.

And to add injury to insult, I hurt my back almost three weeks ago. I can stand and I can lay; it's those intermediate positions that have made me cry out in pain.

And, I have no idea how it happened. I went to bed feeling fine and I woke up feeling like I got hit by a truck.

I've been trying to allow it to get better, but after waking up with spasms yesterday, I called for an appointment with my doctor today.

I hadn't planned on driving anywhere today, but today I had to. I had a choice between food and gas and chose gas. It's just a ten dollar bleg since one of my subscribers pays tomorrow. I won't starve.

About my methods of donation: I took down the Everbutton because they decided that, instead of allowing payouts in 2-3 days, they would make it 7 days until they "trust me." I've heard that before! I've also created a Patreon account; might as well keep creating my own job since no one else will.

By the way, I can pass a drug test now, but no promises about later when I'm content-creating. Might be fun!

UPDATE: Thank you! No more needed.

DIAGNOSIS: Doc says stuff happens when you're kinda old.

Job Update, July 1, 2017


Still applying, but with no interview offers. I received a few “sorry, but…” emails. The only positive email I received was from Amazon, who assured me that I’m still in the running. I have a new subscriber to this blog when brings me to a total of three. (Thank you!)

So, now I’m going the online money route, surveys and whatnot. It’s tedious, but we do what we must—and there are far worse things people must do for money! I think that the copy-writing and transcribing is very promising, but I’m going to have to learn to manage my time better: block out certain hours for those methods of earning and block out another time segment for writing here and at Da Tech Guy. I can do it!

Also, I’ve been doing a temporary gig for some friends who will be able to pay me next week. It's a job I enjoy.

(Side note: I’m going to put off doing anymore YouTube videos until I can afford better equipment.)

So, a little here and a little there. And, if you’re inclined to hit my tip jar, I would be grateful, as always. (I do need $75 to give to my landlord in a couple of days.) Thanks to the others who have already done so!
