A Portland Tragicomedy

Image result for images of pie in face

Portland, Oregon, sounds like a great place to avoid.

Recently two employees were fired by the Back to Eden vegan bakery for turning away a black woman who wanted to buy something after the shop was closed and the “Open” sign turned off (https://www.wnd.com/2018/07/employees-fired-for-denying-black-woman-service-after-closing/).

What part of “We’re closed” didn’t she understand?

Well, of course, when you’re a Cherished Minority–not to mention a “professional equity activist” and “equity director” for the Oregon Dept. of Education, a government agency with money to piss into the wind–you don’t have to take “We’re closed.” Indeed, the slightest little disappointment, for you, constitutes “a disturbing and heart-wrenching experience.” How dare anybody not give you what you want?

So she went on the social media and got a “clamoring public” to demand that the two employees be fired for not digging the “racial implications” of their failure to re-open the shop because this professional complainer demanded it.

How did civilization manage to get along for thousands and thousands of years without professional equity activists? What, if any, function does such a creature serve? What would happen to life as we know it if all of a sudden we had to do without professional equity activists?

I really am running out of patience for stuff like this. I can’t imagine why our country continues to tolerate it.


Educational Disaster, and the Racial Grievance Industry

See the source image

Here are some appalling facts and figures provided by Walter Williams today in his Townhall.com column (https://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2017/11/29/black-selfsabotage-n2414540).

Baltimore has 39 high schools. In 2016, in 13 of those high schools, not a single student passed the state’s math proficiency exam. Of 3,800 students who took the test, only 14 passed it! Meanwhile, only 15 percent of the students passed the English test.

What’s that you say? The schools need more money? Uh-uh. Baltimore ranks No. 3 in per-pupil spending among the nation’s 100 largest school districts.

Despite this wretched performance on the tests, Baltimore hands out high school diplomas to just about everyone who shows up to get one, and some of them go on, of course, to college–some even on scholarships. And a lot of those, once they get there, fail because they have had no meaningful educational foundation. Others go on to fail in other areas of life.

They wonder how this can be. After all, they have diplomas, just like all those white students who didn’t fail in college (and Dr. Williams points out that the white kids’ educational foundation is nothing to write home about, either). And along come the usual race hustlers and tell these young black people that they fail because of–you guessed it–systemic racism. Meanwhile, the NAACP busies itself opposing any and all attempts to reform the education system. The racial grievance industry is allied, as in joined at the hip, to the teachers’ unions. They’re both in it for the money.

These young people are the prey of thieves and hypocrites, victims of an over-funded, over-staffed, incompetent, dishonest public education system whose sole interest is in fattening their paychecks. God only knows how many potentially productive minds are being wasted by these “educators” and their political protectors. Some of these kids might have accomplished great things, if only they’d been educated.

Instead, all they’ve got is worthless, meaningless diplomas–and a nice big chip on their shoulders, carefully put there by the predators.


Now It’s a Racist Robot

You’d think if your daughter’s school notified you that the kid missed her first period class, the thing that would concern you most would be, “Where was she, then?” But you’ll need to be sharper than that if you want to get in on the race racket.

So it seems a girl named “Nicarri”–no, I won’t say anything–was the subject of a school’s robo-call to her mother, advising her that her daughter hadn’t been in class where she was supposed to be. Only the robot pronounced the name wrong–fancy that–and turned it into… a racial slur ( https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nicarri-stewart-robo-call-racial-slur_us_59fb7b6de4b01b4740493fe3)!

Maybe the robot needs to be in sensitivity training.

My kid cut class? Didn’t even register. But race! Well, there’s gold in them thar hills!

No mention of what daddy thinks of it all. Intact families are just another form of racism. Or something like that.

Hint to the racial grievance industry: When everything is racist, then nothing is racist.


Libs Outsmart Themselves with Slavery ‘Game’

Image result for images of flight to freedom game

Among the several towering defects of public education is its compulsion to convince America’s children that America is a hellhole of Social Injustice, and certainly not a country worthy of anyone’s respect or loyalty.

So they’ve cooked up this series of online games called “Mission US,” all of them focusing on the sufferings of poor downtrodden minorities at the hands of, well, white people in America, because they want kids to grow up thinking their country really sucks and a place like Venezuela would really be just so much nicer…!

One of these games, “Flight to Freedom,” portrays the evils of slavery, which ended 150 years ago and now only exists where it is practiced by Muslims. But when they brought it into the classroom at Phoenix Elementary School, the lesson backfired (http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/phoenix-education/2017/10/10/phoenix-parents-slavery-simulation-game-elementary-schools-unacceptable/751732001/). Parents got terribly upset, claiming that the game is “potentially traumatic” for their children.

One of the accomplishments of the Left’s incessant yawping about slavery is to have made me just not care about it anymore. The Romans enslaved some of my ancestors, and who cares? I mean, why doesn’t that count? Was it just too long ago? Well, then, what is the shelf life of injustice?

There is hardly any group of people on the earth that has not been enslaved at some time or another, and certainly no group–if we insist on talking about groups, instead of individuals–that has not suffered injustice at some other group’s hands. It’s called history: and if God the Father didn’t work overtime to preserve us from our own deeply sinful selves, we’d have no history.

“MissionUS” is nothing more than another tiny cog in a vast injustice-collecting industry run by liberal power-grabbers hoping to grab still more power by fomenting racial discord.

Because if racial harmony were ever allowed to flourish here, they’d all be out of work.


HBO Race Baiters: ‘Trust Us’

Image result for images of slavery

The last thing in the world desired by American liberals is racial harmony. It would put most of them out of work. So they do everything they can to keep the pot boiling.

HBO plans to come out with a new mini-series, Confederate, based on the premise that the South won the Civil War and still has slavery in the 21st century. A lot of people think this is simply more race-baiting; but the folks at HBO say, “Trust us, it’ll be real nice” (https://apnews.com/0e7beba6eea1404490720923932fb7e9/NoConfederate-campaign-against-HBO-slave-drama-takes-off). They do not offer us any reason why we should trust them.

Alternative history based on ignorance, for whipping up anger for political purposes–that’s what this is. In the exceedingly unlikely event that the Confederate states could have won their independence, and then kept it for another 150+ years, it’s even more unlikely they would have hung on to slavery. It would have been economic suicide, and would have deprived the new nation, outnumbered by its enemies, of millions of African-Americans who would have made good citizens, with much to contribute to their country. Besides which, even in 1865, there were many prominent Confederate leaders saying the time had come to abolish slavery: Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis, just to name two.

But here the name of the game is to keep the racial grievance industry, dba the Democrat Party, in business. And that’s their only game.

 


Have They All Gone Mad?

The news gets crazier day by day, and it seems the whole ruling class of the Western world has been struck mad: not just the politicians and the bosses, but the noozies, the teachers, the celebrities–the whole lot of them.

They do things that simply make no sense and which cannot possibly benefit their countries or societies.

Not content with the damage wrought by “gay” activism, they feverishly promote all kinds of transgender lunacy. To hear them tell it, the world has an epidemic of transgenderism. All of a sudden, like. And it must be encouraged at all costs!

America’s current leaders do everything they can think of to stir up racial animosities. We’ve heard of “divide and rule,” but this seems to be heading more toward “destroy and rule.” It is impossible to see how this in any way benefits the country.

In spite of all experience, all the national leaders of the West have a mania for trying to jam-pack as many Muslims into their countries as they can, while making absolutely no effort whatsoever to assimilate the ones they already have. They go so far as to deny there’s any such thing as violent Islamic radicalism, and refuse to lift a finger to protect their own people from it.

There’s more, much more; but this is a blog post, not a magazine article.

In all of these absurd public policies, there is nothing at all to be gained by the country that adopts them. So why, why, why are they doing it? Has God struck our leaders mad, prior to destroying them? Or has He simply stepped aside to let their folly run its course?

The latter is the more frightening scenario.


‘You’re Still a Racist’

There are churches that aren’t worthy of the name; and I think the most unworthy of them all is The United Church of Christ (UCC).

Recently on its Facebook page, the UCC–which some ignorant noozie described as “a major mainline Protestant denomination,” lol–counseled its couple dozen members to “Listen when people call you on your microaggressions” and to “Recognize that you’re still a racist, no matter what” ( http://dailycaller.com/2016/06/07/united-church-of-christ-all-whites-are-racist-no-matter-what/ ). That only applies if you’re white, of course. All white people are racists.

This major flat-line denomination is also gung-ho for homosexual pseudo-marriage and “gay” pastors, and all the rest of that stuff that drives sane people out of these perpetually shrinking sects. So a spot of race-hustling is hardly out of place.

Someday, if there is anyone around to write the history of this lamentable age, we may learn just how much damage these shabby excuses for churches have done to America.

And if that’s a microaggression, then let me make it a little less micro and a little more macro:

You people are false prophets and evil shepherds, who daily take God’s name in vain, your church is a false church, and unless you repent and change your ways, you’re in for a most uncomfortable Eternity.


Our ‘Racist’ National Parks

Does he look like a racist?

(Thanks to Linda for tipping me off to this story.)

Did you know our country’s national parks are… racist? Oh, yeah–Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, the Everglades, Yosemite, and all the rest. Racist.

This is according to an impeached federal judge, a former manager of the Seattle City Race and Social Justice Initiative, and a couple of the usual academic dingbats ( http://www.dcclothesline.com/2016/05/21/leftwing-lunacy-trees-national-parks-are-racist/ ). Note: if your city has a “race and social justice initiative,” your city has too much money and needs a budget cut.

The parks must be racist, I guess, because you can’t find anybody from our urban utopias going there to play knockout. But what are these dopes complaining about? The problem can be quickly and easily fixed.

All the government has to do is to declare that such places as Detroit, Camden, the South Bronx, etc., are now national parks, to be preserved just as they are, in perpetuity, so that future generations can enjoy them. No one will complain about these parks being “too white”!

Real racism in America–the real kind, the kind that does real harm–is a problem that has been solved, insofar as human beings can solve it. What remains is mostly silly stuff along with a great deal of imaginary stuff.

This is because race hustlers and other Democrats never wanted racism to be solved in the first place: it’s very hard to make a lot of money as a race hustler if there isn’t any racism. Next thing you know, they’re going to be complaining about the “Semite” in Yosemite.

Over the past seven years, leftids have made real progress in undoing racial peace and harmony. They will never stop trying.

By the way, it’s a sin to stir up strife among people who would otherwise be at peace with one another.

Judgment Day is not going to be a good day for people who have done that.


Another Reason Not to Watch the Stupid Bowl

Are you tired of multimillionaire celebrities whining about how oppressed they are?

Well, if you’re not, you’ll enjoy the Super Bowl halftime show today, during which oppressed zillionaire superstar Beyonce will perform what has been described as “a racially charged” music video ( http://variety.com/2016/music/news/beyonce-formation-music-video-1201699214/ ).

The video will feature a police car being sunk into some body of water, and a wall spray-painted with the message, “Stop Shooting Us.” Because, as you know, white policemen make a habit of gunning down poor black males for no reason whatsoever and always get away with it because of White Privilege.

In fact, the overwhelming majority of “Us” who get murdered, get murdered by “Us.” Not by policemen. This is a fact. There are people who are not afraid to state it. But they don’t get to put on Super Bowl halftime shows.

Hey! Wouldn’t it be absolutely cool if Beyonce set off a race riot at the Super Bowl? I don’t know–is that what she wants? Because liberals sure do give the impression that that’s exactly what they want.

Our Lord blesses peacemakers. How do you suppose He feels about persons who go far out of their way to un-make the peace?

Turn it off, folks; turn it off. There’s got to be something better to do than watching this garbage.
