Transforming the Ditsy Class

Teaching Good Little Girls to Hate and to Fear

by Christopher Chantrill    at  American Thinker:

Golly, just when we deplorables had finished digesting the incomparable Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, along comes another tasty dish: the New York Times’ pet racist and sexist, Sarah Jeong.

AOC’s claim to fame is a B.A. at Boston University, which explains everything.  So I wondered about Korean-born Sarah Jeong.  Sure enough, says La Wik:

She attended the University of California Berkeley and Harvard Law School, where she was editor of Harvard Journal of Law & Gender.

Dear God.  Of course, Jeong is an anti-white racist and an anti-male sexist, for that is what she was carefully taught by her lefty teachers and administrators.

By the way, could we clear up the vile misdirection by Oscar Hammerstein II in South Pacific, sung by Lt. Cable?

You’ve got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You’ve got to be taught
From year to year,
It’s got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You’ve got to be carefully taught.

No!  Oscar, baby, you know better!  You are writing rubbish, the self-conceit of liberals, circa 1949.  Earth to lyricists: you have to be carefully taught not to hate and to fear.  Teaching humans to hate and to fear is the easiest thing in the world!  Here’s the Guardian (H/T Jonah Goldberg):

[W]hile some individuals have “predispositions” towards intolerance, these predispositions require an external stimulus to be transformed into actions.  Or, as another scholar puts it: “It’s as though some people have a button on their foreheads, and when the button is pushed, they suddenly become intensely focused on defending their in-group.”

Well, bless my buttons!  You mean to say that all it takes is to press a button, and lefties immediately go into a group hate and start to defend their identity in-group?  Gag me with a spoon!  I never would have thunk it.

In his piece, Jonah also gently raises the question that the Steve Sailers of the world have been ventilating for a while.  When whites become self-consciously white, then the liberal race game is not going to be fun anymore, because of the button on white people’s foreheads.

Okay.  End of fun-and-games, beginning of Serious Philosophy.

When you set up a worldview that unifies, or, as we say, totalizes politics and secular religion, that proposes to use the force of government to create the perfect world, then you set up a double Us and Them dynamic.  First of all, politics is the technique of dividing people into two warring groups: Our Group, the good guys, and the Other Group, the bad guys.  Taken to the limit, we are talking about civil war.  Second, religion is the technique of assembling a community of people around a specific notion of God and a perfect world.  The religious community is the good guys, and the rest of the world are heretics and unbelievers.  Taken to the limit, we are talking about auto-da-fé and Reigns of Terror.

In their wisdom, our Founding Fathers declared that there should be a separation between politics and religion, between State and Church.  I wonder why, Alexandria and Sarah!  Do you have an idea?  Did your gender studies teachers get into this, I wonder?

I will tell you, ladies.  Our Founding Fathers knew what a tangled web was weaved when they mixed politics and religion in the Thirty Years War.

So along came the lefties in the 19th century, rich kids like Marx and Engels, and said: I know, let’s have a class war, Capitalists vs. Workers!  Yay, Workers!

So, in the 20th century, we had WWII, the religious war to end all religious wars: Democracy vs. Fascism.  You would think the wise heads would have tired of combining government and secular religion.

But no!

And so today, all over the U.S., Good Little Girls are being taught to hate and to fear.  Good Little Girls like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sarah Jeong.  Because racism.

As everybody knows, the key thing about racism is power.  If you have power, you can be a racist.  If you don’t have power, then you can’t be a racist.

But if Candace Owens can be suspended for a racist tweet exactly echoing Sarah Jeong’s tweet, except for substituting “Jewish” or “black” for “white,” and Sarah Jeong to this very day does not get suspended, and Sarah Jeong works for the New York Times and Candace Owens does not, then who has the power?  And who is the racist?

Perhaps our intersectional friends can do a little intersectional analysis on this for us.

But I warn you, you lefty professors and diversity administrators.  One day, the Good Little Girls will wake up and realize that You Lied.  I don’t think things have changed much since 1697, when playwright William Congreve opined that Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

The Fascist Left’s Invasion of Illegal Aliens… “Good Morning, San Francisco!”

San Francisco Getting 78 Calls A Day About Human Feces In The Street

The San Francisco Chronicle published a snapshot of how the city is dealing with thousands of homeless people living on the streets and the waste, including drug needles and feces, they leave behind. The good news is that the number of tent encampments is down substantially from two years ago:

The number of tents on San Francisco streets has been cut by more than half in the past two years, but despite the shrinking numbers, the street behavior by the homeless, the mentally ill and the drug-addled continues to be a challenge — with no quick solution in sight.

The city’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Services clocked the number of homeless encampments on streets and sidewalks at 568 in July — compared with 1,200 in July 2016.

But if the number of tents are down, the number of people shooting drugs and using the sidewalk as a bathroom is still remarkably high. In July alone the city received over 1,000 calls about used needles and nearly 2,000 about feces on the street.

The city’s 311 service portal reported logging 1,138 complaints about discarded syringes between July 1 and July 25 of this year — or about 45 a day. During the same period, the 311 line clocked 1,948 calls — or about 78 a day — from people reporting human feces or waste on the streets or sidewalks.

One flash point are BART’s downtown stations, where there has been a growing number of complaints from riders about hypodermic needles littering the transit system.

Four BART riders have been pricked by needles in the past two years, including a mother of two from San Ramon, who claimed she sat on a stray needle in May while riding to San Francisco. She was later tested for HIV and got a hepatitis vaccine shot — but must continue to be tested every three months over the next 1½ years.

Meanwhile, new figures from BART show that since April janitors have cleaned up more than 13,000 dirty needles left behind at the Civic Center and Powell Street stations.

San Francisco recently banned single-use plastic straws but the city gives out millions of single-use needles every year and a tremendous number of those are left behind on the street. From the AP:

The city distributes an estimated 400,000 syringes each month through various programs aimed at reducing HIV and other health risks for drug users. About 246,000 syringes are discarded through the city’s 13 syringe access and disposal sites. But thousands of the others end up on streets, in parks and other public areas, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday…

To address the problem, San Francisco Mayor Farrell has hired 10 workers whose sole job will be to pick up needles starting in June.

I wrote about the situation at BART stations back in April. As you can see in the video below, we’re not talking about one or two addicts tucked in a corner, we’re talking about the entire space clogged with people who are sprawled along the ground, blocking the path of people who are actually using the station.

San Francisco just elected a new mayor, London Breed, who has promised to make homelessness her central focus. One of the items on her agenda: So called “safe injections sites” where the city’s addicts can use drugs away from the eyes of tourists. Maybe that will keep a few more needles off the street but I think the 10 guys whose job it is to clean up this mess don’t need to worry about their job security.

GOP’s Balderson Ekes Out Winning Vote Count…..Dems Fake News May Win Fake Recount Minnesota Style!

Troy Balderson leads by 0.9 percentage points, or 1,754 votes, over Danny O’Connor with 100 percent of precincts fully reporting.

CANDIDATE PARTY VOTES PCT.
Troy Balderson Republican 101,574 50.2%
Danny O’Connor Democrat 99,820 49.3
Joe Manchik Green 1,127 0.6

202,521 votes, 100% reporting (591 of 591 precincts)

What to watch: Voters in Ohio’s 12th District are choosing a replacement for Representative Pat Tiberi, a Republican who resigned to work for a business group. The candidates are Troy Balderson, a Republican endorsed last week by Mr. Trump, and Danny O’Connor, a Democrat.

The race is expected to be close, and both national parties are spending heavily. But whoever loses will get a rematch in the regularly scheduled election in just three months.

— MAGGIE ASTOR

(Note:  Dems nearly always win recount votes…….for Dems do the recount counting….as they did  in Minnesota in 2008  when they hoisted  creepy loser, Al Franken to secure the 60th Leftist vote for the Obama Senate that year….ghr)

COMMENTARY: Everybody hates Donald Trump — or do they?

by Wayne Allyn Root  at reviewjournal:

What a two-week period for President Donald J. Trump.

They’re all rooting against him, thereby (by default) hoping America, the U.S. economy and middle-class job growth either fail or fall short. And it’s not just Democrats. It’s virtually everyone in power, in government, in the establishment.

Economists are rooting for Trump to fail. Democrats are rooting for Trump to fail. Ivy League eggheads are rooting for Trump to fail. The media are rooting for Trump to fail. Hollywood celebrities are rooting for Trump (and the economy) to fail.

The Deep State is rooting for Trump to fail (and be impeached). The whole D.C. Swamp — including the GOP establishment (think John McCain and Paul Ryan) are rooting for Trump to fail.

The entire welfare industrial complex — meaning anyone and everyone among the 110 million Americans on some form of welfare or government handout — is rooting for Trump to fail.

Everyone in the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fan club — i.e., those who hate America, hate capitalism and want everything for free: free college; free Medicaid for all; free welfare checks for everyone (universal income); free abortions for all; a free ride for every illegal alien (abolish ICE and open borders). I call it EIM — the Embrace Insanity Movement. They’re all rooting for Trump to fail.

But a funny thing is happening. Even though everyone seems to hate Trump … they don’t. In the midst of all this hate, Trump’s popularity is expanding and exploding upward.

First, the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll came out last week. Trump’s approval is the highest of his presidency. Among members of his own party, it’s the second-highest in history. Trump beats Reagan, Obama, JFK and Bill Clinton among voters from their own party.

Then the Gallup poll came out. Same result. Trump’s highest approval ever.

Then the American Barometer poll by HarrisX came out. Same result. Trump’s highest approval ever.
