Way back when, I taught at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. It was an engineering college then. Its graduates were expected to be able to design and build things that wouldn’t fall apart.
Now RPI has an “ethnomusicologist”–do you know what that is? does it have anything to do with engineering?–who has organized a major academic conference [groans offstage] to “explore” pop stars like Taylor Swift… and especially in regard to “the whiteness of her fans.” Am I wrong, or are these people starting to sound like Captain Ahab? Obsessed with killing the White Whale.
Well sheee-it! boys ‘n’ girls–that bridge you designed and built just collapsed with 200 cars on it, but so what? You’re clued into the whiteness of Taylor Swift’s fans! Really, what more could anybody ask in an engineer?
Damn, everything’s racist! You just can’t have any fun anymore! Gotta ban everything.
Critical Race Theory, which aims at establishing the perpetual guilt of all white people and building a society founded on racial hatred, has been in the works for a long time. Here’s the “United Church of Christ” in 2016 hectoring its few dozen members to embrace their guilt. I wonder if anyone still belongs to the UCC; it might’ve been completely deserted by now.
Flatline churches have been a national disease for a long, long time.
Somebody on my chess forum has told me I ought to throttle back on the name-calling.
For some reason it made me think of a bit in a 1953 sci-fi classic, It Came from Outer Space. Things have been getting very gnarly, and the sheriff is just about ready to erupt. And he says, “Did you know… more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature. I read an article once–lower temperatures, people are easy-going. Over 92, it’s too hot to move. But just 92, people get irritable!”
Well, what can I say? I get irritable. Especially when it’s day after day with white liberal useful idiots squawking about how much they hate white people and how bad all white people are, yatta-yatta. It’s my job to check the news each day, but there’s only so much of this Woke Democrat horse-schiff I can take.
I think it’s important and valuable to mock the Far Left self-anointed oracles who presume to lecture us. They believe their own hype and it drives them crazy when they’re laughed at. If there’s anybody out there who’s fooled by the Left’s pretense to superior intelligence, we owe it to them to set them free from that deception.
We are not up against criminal geniuses like Prof. Moriarty or Dr. Fu Manchu, super-villains, might as well surrender, etc. True, there are a few sharp knives in that drawer; but it’s a very big drawer. For the most part, we’re up against poops and twaddlers who haven’t even a suspicion of just how stupid they are.
And, and, and! We are up against spiritual wickedness in high places. See St. Paul’s warning in Ephesians 6: 10-20. Earnest prayer is called for.
I’m not trying to say it’s a good thing for me to lose my temper when dealing with Satan’s sock puppets. But “winsome” just looks phony when I try it, and besides, it’s wasted on them.
Honk if you really, truly, deeply care if some bird you just saw at the birdbath is named after some bird-watcher in the 19th century that you never heard of but who had 19th century ideas ANDTHATSJUSTSOBADOMGIMHYPERVENTILATING–!
This donk wants all birds’ names changed if they were named by or for “racists.” ‘Cause just because you lived 150 years before Woke was even thought of, that’s no excuse for not being Woke.
What do you want to bet he’d have no trouble at all naming some finch after Mao Tse-tung, the most prolific mass murderer of all time?

Ah! But imagine you’re watching a Superman movie and just burning up inside because Superman is white. What do you do?
You put on a pair of Co-lor-Spex from Pdgaa Products–and presto! Everyone in the movie, even in the crowd scenes, is black! No more whiteys anywhere. Buy a different pair of Spex for every color!
And they work with pictures in books, too. And TV broadcasts. And for stuff streaming on your computer. Even the nooze!
With Co-lor-Spex you will never again–never!–have to see people who aren’t the right color. But wait, there’s more!
Pdgaa’s crack research team is working on All Day Co-lor-Spex so that every person you see in public or in private will be in the color that you want to see! You’ll never again see anyone who’s in the wrong skin color!
In 2014 someone hoaxed passersby, telling them the Speaker of the House admitted he didn’t like Mexican food and asking them what they thought should be done about it. And a lot of little fascists said some action ought to be taken against him because not liking Mexican food makes you a Racist and by golly the country can’t tolerate that!
By now they’ve had some years to work on their position to make it even more irrational, unjust, and stupid. Now you don’t even have to be white to be a White Supremacist. Any opposition to these vermin, no matter how trivial or ineffectual, has them howling for your head on a pole.
Democrats–think how great America would be without them.
