Update on the post of right here. In that post, we pointed out how Abagond exhorted black Americans to go from demanding free stuff to demanding free stuff even more stridently.
Abagond then remarked to his herd in the same post yesterday, that we had made some comments on his, let’s face it, imbecilic, paranoid post. I had to chuckle. Here’s the link to Abagond’s assessment of our post, And here’s the text of his brief remark:
xPraetorius wrote a post about my “moronic codswallop” and SnailHail’s “clear-eyed perspective”
Well, he got the “moronic codswallop” part right.
However, I gave the clear-eyed perspective. If you read what I wrote (linked at top), you’ll note that I was much more balanced than Abagond indicated.What is the only possible conclusion? Simple: Abagond didn’t read it, but felt competent to comment on it.
Therein you will find two signature characteristics of the Race Grievance Industry: #1: laziness and #2: dishonesty. It appears that Abagond might have read the first part, and maybe the last paragraph, but that’s about it. Or: he just lied about it. Here’s that last paragraph from my post. The red text is my comment, while the black came from the commenter who goes by “SnailHail.”
Yep if anyone has anything to correct or argue with I’m open to it. [I’m thinking thatSnailHail will hear about this. He or she needs to be brought to heel, as his reply to Abagond is very much against the unbreakable orthodoxy of the Race Grievance Industry. The RGI cares about little more than maintaining the myth of white racism, and enforcing ideological purity in the ranks. As much of a racist as SnailHail is, he or she has a clear-eyed perspective on the failings within the black community. (emphasis added) Furthermore, as I showed up top, SH’s reply thoroughly debunks Abagond’s entire post. Even more, the post thoroughly debunks Abagond’s entire racist worldview! I’m looking forward to the fireworks.]
I bolded the part from which Abagond took his assessment. You’ll note that a mere eight words previous to the “clear-eyed perspective” phrase — the only place where “clear-eyed perspective” appears in the post — is my remark that “SnailHail” is a racist, as his post indeed indicates. You’ll note also, that the words, “clear-eyed perspective” apply only to SnailHail’s perspective “on the failings within the black community.”
Obviously, SnailHail’s perspective as it pertains to white people is not at all “clear-eyed,” but rather racist. I further remarked in the very opening paragraph of my entire post, that “SnailHail” supports Abagond’s idiotic post. Obviously, no one possessed of an entirely clear-eyed perspective would do that. Abagond’s post is, after all, moronic codswallop.
Why would I care? Because it’s instructive. The RGI feel the need to lie and distort things, to go through all sorts of twisted contortions and convoluted gymnastics, in order to maintain the myth of white racism.
Since Abagond linked to our post, we can draw some conclusions about certain things.
- The balanced assessment that I actually gave of Abagond’s post and SnailHail’s reply are out there for all the world to see.
- Therefore, Abagond assumes that his herd either:
- won’t read it, preferring simply to be led by him, or
- is too stupid to understand it, or
- will somehow believe him, despite the plain evidence to the contrary in front of their faces.
- Abagond felt it was okay to lie to his herd.
- Abagond is confident that his herd is okay with being lied to.
None of those inescapable conclusions says anything good about the intellectual capacities of the pawns of the Race Grievance Industry.
The vast web of fabrications, inventions, imagined slights, made-up insults and non-existent affronts that are the stock-in-trade of the RGI, are necessary in order to keep society off-balance, and to keep the flow of free stuff going. Because If it is only the RGI who can see these imagined offenses, then they can’t be disproven. People like BrothaWolf and Abagond are happy to seize on these fictitious abuses to keep up their steady drum beat of accusation and demand
In that very same thread, the commenter who calls himself “gro jo,” another pawn of the RGI, gleefully lied straight to the Abagond herd, no doubt knowing that I couldn’t comment on it directly, because Abagond censors his blog to maintain ideological purity.
Here’s the link to that comment. And, here’s the comment itself:
Abagond, why do you even bother with xP? The poor guy is so stupid, he thought that the $1.2 trillion Black American share of the GDP was welfare and other handouts that you and your ilk managed to extort from the rest of America through blackmail, as agents of the Race Grievance Industry(RGI).
And, of course, an actual reading of the exchange between this guy and me (here) reveals that I don’t think that at all. I did believe it, but then found out that I was in error. Gro jo brings out the one teentsy, weentsy, itty, bitty part in the very long back-and-forth, where he had the better of it. His team got beaten 150-1 in the debate, and he crows about the one point that he got.
And that is signature characteristic #3, of the RGI: self-delusion.
Even more: he presents our long back-and-forth as if his one point were the entire contents of the conversation. It’s important to note that gro jo omits entirely the fact that he never once even addressed my core arguments, by which omission he tacitly admits they’re true.
That brings me to signature characteristic #4 of the RGI: Avoidance. They do all they can to avoid hearing, or even acknowledging the existence of, opposing arguments. They do it through the well-known tactic of banning the source of such unwelcome challenges, or, like gro jo, simply lying about them.
And that brings me to signature characteristic #5 of the Race Grievance Industry: The inability, or unwillingness, to modify their point of view in the slightest, even when confronted by clear evidence that contradicts what they believe. Countervailing evidence causes them to throw infantile tantrums, to dig in their heels, and to ratchet up the stream of invective and insult. That’s when the standard accusations of “Racist!” and “Liar!” and, of course, “Stupid!” come out in torrents.
How to label that characteristic in a few words? “Irrational Stubbornness?” Doesn’t seem to cover it entirely. Certainly irrational, but they’re more stubborn than merely “stubborn.” How about: Irrational dogmatism. These are the flat-earthers of yesteryear.
Those long ago flat-earthers used to make up complex mathematical, theoretical and philosophical models to support their dogmatic belief that the earth was flat. All to avoid having to admit they were wrong, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that contradicted their premise. That, above all, is today’s Race Grievance Industry in a nutshell.
The RGI reminds me constantly of the joke about Teacher/Dad/Mom/Boss/fill in Authority Figure: Rule #1: The [fill in Authority figure here] is always right… Rule #2: If [fill in Authority Figure here] is wrong, see Rule #1.
The more you deal with the RGI, the more you realize that all the invective, the bravado, the sneering contempt and the accusations, are all nothing more than projection.
One thing I found particularly amusing is that “gro jo” called me stupid. If you read our exchange, here, you see that yours truly — apparently the stupid one — trounced “gro jo” rather handily. If we accept gro jo’s premise that I’m stupid, then gro jo was badly beaten by a stupid person. What, I wonder, does that make of him?
And, here’s my last paragraph in my closing remarks concerning gro jo’s apparent surrender in that exchange:
That’s right, this moron gro jo is one of the less stupid members of Abagond’s herd!
