America certainly has work to do on race, but ritual and symbolic acts aren't the way forward.


Those of us watching incongruously and needlessly acrid media posts and the yanking down of statues cannot help thinking the real motivator of the TWA posture is a simple joy in indignation and destruction, along with the comforts of group warmth. The white TWA adherent cherishes displaying virtue. The black TWA adherent has fallen for the Siren call of the noble victim complex, affording one the status of a Cassandra, a survivor, even the granter of absolution, as we see in some of the protest videos.

So, you mean Trump's rallies and White Supremacist protests, with men prominently displaying guns are really pointless symbolism?

and

Let me count the ways ol Donnie and his Dingleberries have claimed 'they' are the victims since January 2017.

I tire of the words “woke” and “virtue signaling.”

Protest brings attention to an issue or issues. The hard work of effectuating change comes later — if ever. Those are not revelations.

Scanned the article. Will read it closely later. Thanks.

Last 10 days of the peaceful party "Summer Love" in CHAZ / CHOP: 6 shot, and 2 dead

Assault, rape, robbery, looting & shootings!  What's not to like?


And just so we're totally clear about who's to blame:

Your bed. You shat in it. You clean it.

Yeah, you should definitely bring Jim Jordan up.

Yes, you SHOULD wonder why there's a lack of full coverage.  Maybe investigate that.

OR you could scroll Andy Ngo' s Twitter feed, chock block full of video he has captured.

OR you could tune in and find out what Andy Ngo has to say to the Oversight Committee on Monday....

Who knew? An honest observer has a bigger hard-on for Antifa than our dynamic KK/K duo. Bonus "surprise!" He's Islamophobic.
The publication where Ngo is an editor, Quillette, is widely seen as a major hub of the “intellectual dark web” — a loose collection of anti-political correctness, anti-identity politics, anti-left media figures and reporters. Ngo is the closest thing the intellectual dark web has to a gonzo journalist, someone who goes into allegedly hostile places and documents them for his more than 200,000 Twitter followers to illustrate that the IDW is right about the threat from multiculturalism and the left.

Last year, for example, Ngo went to the UK to chronicle the supposed threat the rising Muslim population posed to British society. The resulting article, “A Visit to Islamic England,” claimed England was being quietly conquered by fundamentalist Islam.

The piece was shredded by actual Brits. Most amusingly, Ngo presented a London sign reading “alcohol restricted zone” as evidence of Islamic dominance in the Whitechapel neighborhood; it was actually a public safety ordinance designed to discourage public acts of drunkenness from patrons of nearby pubs, bars, and strip clubs.

Ngo’s coverage of left-wing protesters is similarly ideological. He views left-wing activists, like Muslim immigrants to the West, as a threat to free and open societies. His reporting plays up acts of vandalism, violence, and hostility to free speech without a comparable focus on the much more frequent and deadly actions of right-wing extremists.

Antifa is a perfect foil for Ngo. The group of typically black-clad activists are radicals who believe the best way to deal with the rise of white supremacy and hate groups in the Trump era is by confronting them on the street. Sometimes, this means organizing demonstrations against them; other times, it means brawling in the streets.

Yeah.  NASCAR owes a huge apology, meanwhile Bubba has decided to try the whole “it’s a noose because I say it is” defense .

Bold. Laughably insane and idiotic, but bold.

What he should have said:
"I am of course relieved this wasn't a hate crime against me. My critics are wrong that it was a hoax - instead it appears to have been a misunderstanding, and I'm grateful my fellow racers and NASCAR & its fans had my back."

He's nuking himself now.



 
As a general rule you are ignore worthy. But this is a notable exception -  






So yeah, who owes who an apology?
