The Race Crime that the Left and PC Committed


In February — “Black History Month” — every year we learn all about all the great things that black people have done throughout history. We just finished “Women’s History Month” where we had to put up with endless paeans to all the glorious things that women have done throughout history.

We’re subjected daily to a relentless barrage of just how great gay and trans people are, how courageous, how brave and, gosh, just how decent they are! And what great things they do for this country! And for you and me! And for all that is good and decent and wholesome and… wonderful!

All the commentators gushing over just how great black people, and women, and brown and yellow people, and gay, and trans, and everyone who’s not part of the group “white men” are… all those commentators are hoping desperately that we’ll all see, and recognize, and applaud their frantic virtue signalling; that we’ll all see how much they just care, that we’ll all see what wise, insightful, good, decent, deep people they are. (1)

You can do all that silly virtue signalling for black, brown, gay, tarns, women, and others… but not for the ones who actually made it all possible: white men.

If you simply tell the truth — nothing more than that — about white men, then all of a sudden, you’re an evil “White Nationalist,” or a disgusting “White Supremacist” or you’re showing your vile “White Privilege.” Or some such tommyrot. Even if you’re not a white man!

I just finished an exchange with Brothawolf (BW) in which that was all I did: I told the truth. Nothing more. White men, in general, established the greatest, freest, most humane, most decent, generous, benevolent civilization this world has ever seen: Western Civilization. 

No sane person disagrees with this. Yet simply to say it — a self-evident truth — is to be branded a “White Nationalist.”

Was that civilization perfect? No. Not by a long shot, but for the first time in human history that civilization had in its foundational documents and states of mind, the elements and institutions that, if not abused, would allow the American nation to be constantly forming a “more perfect union,” as the preamble of the Constitution says.

We should note: what a “White Nationalist” is: Well, first of all, the people using the term and tossing it about as a casual insult meant to imply that it’s synonymous with “racist,” don’t really know what it means. That’s at least partly because the word “nationalist” is poorly understood just about everywhere.

[Brief Digression]

Leftists are forever inventing terms they hope will stick when some other fabrication of theirs has run its course, and shown itself to be either meaningless, or flat-out false. Leftists are adept at this. Since they’re so often wrong about things, their words and terms and memes don’t stand up to any kind of scrutiny, and they’re constantly in need of new fabrications.(2)

As we mentioned in another piece, the Left tosses out terms that they hope the shallower and lazier among us will adopt and parrot without investigating them thoroughly.

This is Brothawolf’s modus operandi. He endlessly parrots the terms of others, plainly without analyzing them at all. Hence he’s gone through many linguistic kicks: “White Supremacy” was a big one,  as were “White Privilege,” “Institutional Racism,” “Systemic Racism,” and more. His current kick: “White Nationalism.” When that one goes away, as it inevitably will, because it’s neither a serious phenomenon nor movement in America, then BW will be onto the next kick. This is how the racists and the race addicts operate. And BW is both a racist and a race addict.

[End of Digression]

So, a White Nationalist is someone who believes that white people ought to establish a white nation. A nation established on the principle of accepting white people as citizens due to their skin color. A bit like the way Israel was established as a homeland for Jewish people.

It’s important to note that, just as Jews in Israel are not necessarily prejudiced against any other religions or their practitioners, there’s no reason that a “White Nationalist” must be a racist. He might have no prejudice whatsoever against non-white people. He may simply believe that if they don’t want to live among people like him, then he might not want to live among them.

It’s neither an unnatural nor an evil desire to wish to live among people who don’t hate you for the color of your skin. The real racism problem in America today — the problem of people hating other people merely because of the color of their skin — resides in non-white hearts and minds.(2a)

Racism directed at non-white people has been utterly defeated in white hearts and minds. Want proof? Okay. Easy: The entirety — one hundred percent, no exceptions — of laws, practices, processes, regulations, rules, policies and procedures in America have been overhauled to remove every last vestige of possibility that it might be lawful or even acceptable to discriminate against non-white people in America.

This is the reason the term “Institutional Racism” is a nonsense term. All the institutions of America have been aggressively made over to be friendly to non-white Americans. All this was happening as America was also busily codifying and legalizing actual race-based discrimination against white Americans — called “Affirmative Action” — in employment, housing, education and elsewhere.

In other words: White people were busy institutionalizing race-based discrimination against… themselves. There is therefore, actual “Institutional Racism” — and it’s directed against white Americans, and it’s been legitimized by the U.S. Supreme Court.

It’s important to note that the “White Nationalist” movement is actually the fault of the militant racists of the black Left. How’s that, you say?

White people — specifically white men — in America have been surrendering power, wealth, privilege and prestige to non-whites, and to women, for more than 60 years. Again, no serious analyst disputes this either.

The reaction has never been anything but an increase in hatred from the leftist fringes of non-white America directed at white people, mainly men. It’s the fringes who make the noise… and the news. And policy in the Democrat Party, the political wing of the American Left. One thing is certain: White people, white men, weren’t looking for gratitude for giving up all that power and treasure, but they certainly weren’t expecting increased hostility.

It’s always been, therefore, inevitable that some white people — probably primarily white men — would say, “To heck with this! Why don’t we just start our own thing?” It’s very much a wrong-headed conclusion, but it’s, obviously, inevitable that some would think this way. Also, it should be noted, the number of people who have come to that conclusion — White Nationalists — is, fortunately, very small.

Here at our small  but increasingly influential think tank, we categorically reject such a conclusion or state of mind. We’ve rejected it numerous times. We want white people to live next-door to black people, who live next-door to brown people, who live next-door to Asian people, next-door to any and all types of people, in a nation of all types of people, with the one common, unifying identity of: “American.”(3) Just as we do. Just that they be good people. No one wants, for example, to live next door to a bank robber or a child molester. Or a racist.

The race crime that the Left and Political Correctness committed against  the American people is the establishment of today’s culture in which it’s acceptable to praise entire categories of peoples — races, a sex, people with non-standard sexual preferences or identities — while abusing another — white men — without allowing those latter persons to defend themselves. Worse, it became equally unacceptable to criticize those groups of peoples on pain of loss of job, career, future, family, and sometimes your life.

The crime has a name; it’s: “Identity Politics.

The problem is that the name is much, much too benign-sounding. This crime has the potential to destroy Western Civilization, and to reduce the world to a new Dark Ages. A Dark Ages in which some of the principal power centers will control nuclear weapons.

Remember: even though Western Civilization has been providing an example of how to provide for freedom and prosperity for hundreds of millions of people around the globe, no other continent has yet seized on that example and run with it.

Africa remains a “Dark Continent,” while Asia has some outposts of freedom, free-market Capitalism and liberal democracy, but only where the United States military either imposed it (Japan, Taiwan, Philippines) or required it as a condition of aid (South Korea). And even in those countries, the word “democracy” can have, shall we say, a flexible meaning.(4)

People like Brothawolf will semi-read this and declare, again, that “we sound just like ‘White Nationalists!!!'”(5) to imply that we are White Nationalists and, therefore… racists.

People like Brothawolf — which is the majority of the Left — are… idiots.

Notes:


(1) As it turns out, some were hoping that all the operatic virtue signalling would indemnify them against that future day when it might be discovered that they were also handsy perverts, cads, racists and jerks. In other words: Democrat Party grandees.

(2) Example: When “Global Warming” proved to be, well, not a thing, the term was gone, and — presto changeo! — in came… “Climate Change!Nota bene: National Public Radio, bless their dim, little hearts — always years behind the news and the trends — still uses the term “Global Warming,” but they’re one of the few bastions of the far Left that do.

That term — “Climate Change” — has itself almost run its course, because some people have finally realized that it’s meaningless: the climate does nothing but change. “Change” is built into the definition of “Climate.” If it doesn’t change, then it’s not a climate. Cf, eg: “Moon, the.”

(2a) Remember: we were present when, on Brothawolf’s very blog (here) a black woman fantasized over the violent deaths of every single last white man, woman and child on the earth. Brothawolf’s reaction? Did he condemn this blood-thirsty fantasy? Did he immediately chastise the poster, demanding that she retract the hideous post? Did he leap to assure us that he didn’t believe in such horrific crap? Nope. His reaction was to… endorse the post.

Now, here’s the important point: Never in all my life, ever, not even once, not ever, have I ever heard a white person express such a ghastly sentiment about a non-white race.

Yet, here it was, out in public, for all the world to see. Right there on Brothawolf’s own blog. You can still see it right here. This is the cancer that is the racism within the black community.

The point is, there were white people who were hoping to extinguish the black race… around the turn of the 19th Century. About 100 years ago.

Feminist hero Margaret Sanger was one. She ran around offering money to black women to sterilize themselves so they wouldn’t produce more black babies. Her thought was that black babies were inferior, and that they’d grow up to become inferior black adults, producing still more inferior black babies. If, therefore, you were to prevent the very conception of black babies in the first place, well, you’d progressively (get it?) improve the quality of the American gene pool.

The eugenicists of the early 20th Century were virulent racists, as are the eugenicists of today.

Is it safe to say that today’s racists in the black community have the same state of mind as the racist eugenicists of over a century ago? Yes, I guess it is. I’ve never once heard anyone on the Left denounce this kind of toxic, nazi-like thinking. And I gave Brothawolf numerous opportunities to denounce such thinking on his own blog, where it would have mattered. He never did.

(3) In this sense, there’s a little bit, but not much, of the “nationalist” in us here, as there is in every person who calls himself a “patriot.”

(4) George W. Bush tried manfully to impose liberal democracy in Iraq, and we’ll never know whether that experiment would have succeeded… the feckless Barack Obama threw away any chance of success when he withdrew precipitously upon his arrival in the Oval Office. To add insult to injury, Obama’s ruinous foreign policy — implemented by his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton — caused the rise of ISIS, and the resulting deaths of tens of thousands of innocent people

(5) This in itself is also meaningless! “Sounding” like something is not being something. Rich Little or David Frye  have sounded like a lot of people when they’ve wanted to, but they’re only… Rich Little and David Frye.

Hitler sounded a lot like a free-market capitalist in numerous pronouncements. Stalin sounded a lot like many western free-speech, free-religion absolutists (see, for example, the 1936 “Stalin Constitution“)… both turned out to be murderous, blood-thirsty goons.

9 thoughts on “The Race Crime that the Left and PC Committed

  1. This is where I get off, because you’re clearly en route to far right extremist ideals. What’s next? Are you going to declare that antisemitism isn’t a major issue anymore, and will yet blame Jews for all your problems in the world like you blame black leftists, feminists, LGBT and Muslims for destroying this country?

    Yes, I know. I know just what’s to likely come as a response.

    You’ll call this comment incoherent, stupid, use your favorite words “hogwash” and “codswallop”, say how racism isn’t a major issue anymore for the billionth time with no explanation, and you’ll say that you DID prove it in the past and yet, refuse to show it or prove it again, and say “good riddance” while complaining how I’m sounding or being an idiot and how nothing I’ve said was of any substance according to you and your “think tank” that you constantly proclaim is “small but influential” and gripe about my spelling and grammar errors as if this was English class.

    You’ll probably respond in your usual way, copying my replies while retorting to the points I’ve made. And sometime in the future, you’ll declare this a win, a win over someone you argued with online.

    Whether you believe it or not, I was being sincere with my thoughts and emotions. I was angry and frustrated at you and wanted you to know where I was coming from through anger and kindness. I tried being nice and pleasant at times, but that didn’t register with you returning the same courtesy, especially now. And all I can say is that for whatever reason you won’t acknowledge, you simply refuse to listen to my side or the side of people who disagree with you and your conservative thinking, because I can only guess is that you somehow feel superior to them in some way, shape or form and you believe that I and other black people like me are delusional about their own situation and are apparently so childlike as to blindly listen to Democrats as if we don’t have minds of our own.

    Like it or not, that is racist condescension, but you don’t want to hear that even though your side expects my people to blindly listen or agree with you for the same racist belief that black people’s minds are easily malleable.

    And yes, it’s still racist EVEN if you have black friends or acquaintances.

    Also, calling such thinking racist won’t lead to the end of the world and it’s not on par with any atrocious events done against us in the past and today. So, calling you or your thinking “racist” or “white nationalist” won’t destroy anything in your universe or the universe of white men. So please, don’t get hysterical for being doing what you do with me, call me names.

    So, moving on.

    It’s apparent that straight, conservative white male grievances are all you truly care about as you think they’re the group that have it hard in this country or else you won’t have written this and other posts with the same subject mentioned. But I know. You’ll tell me I’m wrong about this as you think I’m wrong about everything concerning race and racism. If that’s the case, then there’s no point in trying to let you know that the path you’re taking is best left alone, and I refuse to allow you or anyone like you to try to indoctrinate – not educate – me in the kind of thinking that only comes from fear and paranoia that will breed anger and hate.

    If you want to go down that path, go ahead. But I’ve chosen not to follow you. Why should I, especially after the treatment you’ve given me over the years? But I doubt you’ll accept any responsibility for that or anything else, because it seems like your definition of “personal responsibly” is to “blame and scapegoat the left”. Again, that’s your choice.

    Oh, I know you’ll accuse me of the same things I’ve accused you. You’ll deflect all the things that I’ve accused you of as a defense. You see, I’ve admitted when I was wrong on some things, and I’ve far from perfect. I’ve accepted responsibility for my actions and I apologize to what I know is wrong. And I’m working on being a better person when I was yesterday. Why? Because that’s what it means to be a human being, and that’s all I’m trying to be, and I hoped that somehow you would maybe, just maybe start to see things from a different angle and realize that you may just be wrong about some things as well.

    All I can guess is that this conservatism you’ve adopted is based on fear, fear you’re holding on to so tight. Why else would you accuse me of being a racist when all I do is speak out against racism? Why else would you constantly bring up that comment that I’ve denounced, but is still not “enough” to you? Why else would you call me an accomplice to “black-on-black crime” even though I’ve spoken out against crime in black communities before? Overall, Why say that what I’ve been saying is stupid and all kinds of derogatory, cruel, and outlandish things to me and about me when calling it “stupid” is childish and you – I assume – are an adult and not provide any context as to why other than the “just because” excuse?

    It’s not about fact as you keep telling yourself and others. It’s about fear. But I don’t fear you or white people. And you can’t scare me, guilt trip me or gaslight me.

    As strange as it may sound, I love you, and I don’t want you to get suckered into extremist thinking no matter what side its on.

    So, with that said, goodbye, xpraetorius. And even though I’m an agnostic, I’ll still pray for you.

    Forevermore, adieu.

      My Reply:
      Actually a good question! Anti-semitism is an issue, because, while it’s not a big problem, it’s on the rise. And it’s on the rise on the political Left, of course. That makes it important to address. White hostility toward black Americans, however, has been doing nothing but diminish, until it’s hard to find it anywhere. And it’s still diminishing. It’s been not a big problem for black Americans — in general — for a long time. That makes it not a big problem in America anymore. Notice, I never said that it’s not a problem, just that it’s not a big problem anymore. And I placed into evidence some very strong argumentation, logic, facts and more to try to show you all that. It’s absolutely, and obviously, not as big a problem — in general — for black people as you say it is. Not even close.

      Your last phrase is incorrectly posed. Obviously, I don’t blame Jews for anti-semitism. The rest of your phrase was “like you blame black leftists, feminists, LGBT and Muslims for destroying this country” If you remove the word “black” from there, you’ve almost got it right. Yes, I “blame leftists, feminists, LGBT and some Muslims for trying to destroying this country.”

      I am correct to assign that responsibility as I do.

      My Reply:
      Lol! Dude… cri de coeur time? This comment was not incoherent. And, saying this gently, I’m not so sure you wrote it. About my “favorite words,” don’t get on my case (1) because I write well, (2) because I have a large vocabulary, and am constantly exercising and expanding it, and (3) because I… use it.

      In my very humble opinion, you should do likewise. I have said that I “proved” my points, and that might have been inaccurate. I did offer convincing evidence, as well as persuasive arguments on behalf of my conclusions.

      A “jury of our peers” would have said that I “proved” my case. There are lots of words that we could use in place of the ones we actually do use. Did I “prove” my points? Not to your satisfaction, I didn’t. However, to an unbiased third party, yes, I “proved” my points overwhelmingly.

      So, as you can see, “prove,” without the proper context, is not necessarily the word to use.

      Maybe. Anytime I declared a “win” was when you were busy boasting about having “beaten me,” or the like. It was a way to goad you into responding, because you apparently have a competitive streak in you. I write well, BW, so I can write persuasively as well. And, I can write to goad and encourage a response from others. That, and a lot more, are all part of writing.

      My Reply:
      I believe you were being sincere in your thoughts and emotions. This phrase makes no sense: “I was angry and frustrated at you and wanted you to know where I was coming from through anger and kindness.” I saw the anger. Until this post, I saw very little “kindness.” However, though I’m always grateful for kindness, I don’t need it. I was looking for perspective. Your anger — at words on a computer screen! — prevented you from giving me that. You gave me, almost exclusively, vituperation. That, in itself, provides perspective, but of a sort that I was not looking for… still, I took it.

      You said you “tried being nice and pleasant at times“. Dude: for years you did nothing but call me names, question my character, integrity, honesty and sanity, and heap abuse on my noggin. It’s only when I turned the tables on you, and fed you your own medicine that all of a sudden you became, or tried to become, Mr. Nice Guy. My change of rhetorical tactic is responsible for this valedictory post of yours.

      I never refuse to listen to those who disagree with me. Again, how do you think I got to where I am, after having been a run-of-the-mill leftist for years? It was not from engaging in any confirmation bias, obviously!

      I never suggested that you’re delusional about your own situation. I indicated, and demonstrated persuasively, that you’re wrong about white people. And you are. I also said, and demonstrated persuasively, that you’re wrong about the circumstance of black Americans in general not about “your own situation.”

      Here’s where you do a constant injustice to those with whom you interact who disagree with you. You say ridiculous things like: “I can only guess is that you somehow feel superior to them in some way, shape or form.” How do you not understand how ridiculous this is? Telling other people what they feel and believe. They go through the effort to give you their words, in order to tell you what they feel and believe! And you have the unmitigated gall to pretend that you know better than they what they’re feeling and thinking?!?

      It’s a gesture of extreme contempt, huge disrespect, massive presumptuousness, towering arrogance to say back to them, “No, I’ll tell you what you feel and believe.” Especially after they’ve gone to considerable effort to pay you the compliment of offering their feelings and beliefs to you! BW: read that last paragraph over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

      You’re constantly guilty of the interaction crime of pretending you know better what people who disagree with you are really feeling and believing. You don’t.

      Don’t “guess what they’re thinking.” Ever. They tell you, Dude! You don’t have to guess! And, here’s the clincher: they’re the ultimate experts in the ENTIRE world on what they’re feeling and thinking.

      So, I’ll repeat it for, what, the thousandth time? No, I don’t feel or think that I’m superior to anyone on earth. Or inferior to anyone on earth.

      Finally, yes, many on the Left — white and black — are, absolutely, “so childlike as to blindly listen to Democrats as if they don’t have minds of their own.” Again, the key word is not “white” or “black” but “Left.”

      Nope. There’s nothing racial in my critiques. I criticize the Left. If you’re on the Left, you might feel a sting. Unfortunately, those on the Left, who are also black, tend automatically nowadays — because they’re on the Left, not because they’re black — to believe that the critique is race-based, when it’s not. People on my side expect thinking people to agree with our points of view. The Left owns the minds of the easily malleable. That’s the point: if you’re easily malleable, you’re never going to believe as we Conservatives do, you’ll believe as you currently do. It takes hard work, and research, and thought, and more hard work, and more research, and questioning your assumptions, and questioning your assumptions again, and again, and again, and again, to get to where we are… the easily malleable don’t get past the “hard work” part. It’s worth repeating: The Left owns the easily malleable.

      No, your being wrong won’t lead to the end of the world. But, you’re still wrong. And your being wrong isn’t on “par with any atrocious events done against us in the past and today,” but you’re still wrong. And you really need to stop pretending that atrocious events are happening to black Americans in general today. They were happening generations ago, but they don’t happen anymore, except on an extremely small, and diminishing, scale. More to the point, when you say atrocious events are happening to “us” today, name them. Don’t do cop shootings, because they’ve been diminishing for years, and especially shootings of black people. Don’t use college admissions: they’ve favored non-white Americans for decades. Don’t use employment: that’s favored non-white Americans and women for decades. Don’t use housing: that’s favored non-white Americans for decades. Don’t use bank lending and financing: that’s favored non-white Americans for decades. Yes, you can use incarceration, but the reason for the current serious problems in incarceration have resulted from the Left’s trying to show how “tough on crime” they are, as well as other things.

      Calling me or my thinking “racist” or “white nationalist” is just stupid, and obviously so. It’s just intellectual laziness on your part. I’m going to indulge in a little bit of BW-esque mind-reading here. Using that kind of crap insult is nothing but an attempt to try to paint me as a bad person, rather than to try to actually address the truth or falseness of what I say. And that needs to be addressed.

      That kind of crap insult ia the leftist way of shutting down debate by insulting the one who dissents, by making him seem evil, so therefore his thinking must be evil. No need even to address it then, right? If the guy saying the thing that we disagree with is evil, why would we need to even address what he says?!? In fact, as on college campuses all across America today, why even let them speak?!? Right? You guys on the Left have it all set up so that you never even have to hear what the OTHERS are thinking… because you never allow them even to say it. You shut them up with your immediate cries of “Racism!” and “Sexism!” and “Homophobia!” and “Islamophobia!” and “White Supremacist!” and “White Privilege!” And, of course, the current fad: “White Nationalist!” And so on and so on and so on and so on… Again, if you on the Left didn’t have insults, you wouldn’t be able to say anything!

      You said: “It’s apparent that straight, conservative white male grievances are all you truly care about as you think they’re the group that have it hard in this country or else you won’t have written this and other posts with the same subject mentioned” — Dude: Get it through your granite noggin: You’re always wrong to try to read other people’s minds! Always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always, always. Okay? You are wrong about what you said about me (and about us), and I’ve told you that numerous times, but still you presume to tell me you know what I’m thinking better than I do! Please tell me you understand what an idiot that makes you sound like.

      I don’t have to “breed anger and hate” in you, you’ve already got plenty of that. More to the point, I suspect that you have the most contempt for yourself, and I feel really sorry for you. The point is: you know I’m right, and you don’t know what to do about it, but to post a long “not in anger, but in sorrow” post like this one.

      You are wrong about the level of white antagonism toward black Americans — it’s practically non-existent — and I’ve pointed it out to you, as I should.

      The “path I’m taking” is one about which you know nothing. Why? Easy: you have no idea what “path I’m taking.” Again, these are things you say to avoid addressing the merits of the things I say. It’s all very cute, and tugs at the heartstrings of the “easily malleable,” but it’s really just more filibustering.

      If you want to go down that path, go ahead. But I’ve chosen not to follow you. Why should I, especially after the treatment you’ve given me over the years? But I doubt you’ll accept any responsibility for that or anything else, because it seems like your definition of “personal responsibly” is to “blame and scapegoat the left”. Again, that’s your choice.
      My Reply:
      Since you don’t know “what path” I’m on, it’s okay that you’ve “chosen not to follow me.”

      This was especially rich: “Why should I, especially after the treatment you’ve given me over the years?” — For years, you abused me (us) rhetorically with your constant insults, and your incessant failure to address the merits of our positions. Finally, after I turned the tables on you, you object? Really? Lol!

      Then, you take your ball and go home. Walloped in an argument, he claims that guy’s crazy! so I win, ’cause I’m the better person! and goes running home. Classic leftist.

      Oh, I know you’ll accuse me of the same things I’ve accused you. You’ll deflect all the things that I’ve accused you of as a defense. You see, I’ve admitted when I was wrong on some things, and I’ve far from perfect. I’ve accepted responsibility for my actions and I apologize to what I know is wrong. And I’m working on being a better person when I was yesterday. Why? Because that’s what it means to be a human being, and that’s all I’m trying to be, and I hoped that somehow you would maybe, just maybe start to see things from a different angle and realize that you may just be wrong about some things as well.
      My Reply:
      And… did you have any substantive points about the merits of my arguments anywhere? Remember: You’ve insisted that I’m obviously wrong, and that there are mountains of evidence to that effect. Then, in your attempt to show that, you produced posts by… (1) Ben and Jerry’s… the ice cream makers, (2) bustle.com — a fashion and sundries web site, (3) a Junior History major at Swarthmore who says she’s “trying to learn self-control while eating chips,” or something of the sort, (4) the Huffington Post, and (5) some dude who admits to being a leftist and has a PhD in something, but of whom I’d never heard until you mentioned him.

      Then, as if to admit that you were ashamed of producing such thin gruel, you didn’t attribute these sources so I could evaluate their legitimacy, or lack thereof. You simply reproduced their words. Well. There’s some convincing stuff!

      I’m glad you’re working on being a better person. I can help you there. Follow these guidelines and you’ll be a better person: NEVER take offense at anyone else’s words. NEVER try to read other people’s minds. NEVER use the following words: racist, crazy, homophobe, sexist, liar, islamophobe, or any other leftist hotbutton insult to characterize another human being. NEVER assume you know what another person feels or thinks. Use his words to let you know that. There are more, but for the moment, if you practice those, overnight you’ll be a much better person. Oh, and one more thing, condemn, in unambiguous terms, Diary’s bloodthirsty post… on your blog. That was the post of a bad person… of a very bad person. Your endorsement of it on your blog says that your’re a bad person. A very bad person. Want to be a better person? Go ahead and do the right thing, and publicly, loudly, out-in-the-openrenounce the thinking behind it, and expunge that filth from your web site, and from your mind and heart.

      All I can guess is that this conservatism you’ve adopted is based on fear, fear you’re holding on to so tight. Why else would you accuse me of being a racist when all I do is speak out against racism? Why else would you constantly bring up that comment that I’ve denounced, but is still not “enough” to you? Why else would you call me an accomplice to “black-on-black crime” even though I’ve spoken out against crime in black communities before? Overall, Why say that what I’ve been saying is stupid and all kinds of derogatory, cruel, and outlandish things to me and about me when calling it “stupid” is childish and you – I assume – are an adult and not provide any context as to why other than the “just because” excuse?
      My Reply:
      Again, you start an entire paragraph with, “All I can guess…” and follow up with an attempt at psychoanalyzing me. Don’t guess. No need. I’ve told you what I think. Now, why don’t you tell me substantively what you think of what I think, instead of what you think of me. Because as long as you have Diary’s post on your web site, you advertise that you’re a bad person, and I don’t care what “you’re guessing.”

      You speak out against a variety of racism that is almost non-existent in America, and you ignore the 8,000 pound elephant in the room: racist antagonism directed by non-white people against white people. Your own included. In so doing, you point as loudly as you can to a small problem, in order to deflect people’s attention away from a major problem. These are not the words and deeds of an anti-racist. These are the words and deeds of a racist trying to deflect attention away from his own racism. As we’ve said numerous times in these pages: The new racists will come waving the banner of anti-racism.

      I called you an “accomplice to black-on-black crime” because you’re an accomplice to black-on-black crime. You probably do “speak out against it,” but you also try to prevent others from speaking out against it. That throws obstacles in the paths of people who might have genuine solutions to a problem that is killing primarily young black men. For that you should be deeply ashamed.

      It’s not about facts as you keep telling yourself and others. It’s about fear. But I don’t fear you or white people. And you can’t scare me, guilt trip me or gaslight me.
      My Reply:
      Lol! Thank you for arguing my point! Of course you don’t fear white people! There’s almost no hostility coming toward black people from white people! Your saying that you don’t fear white people simply proves that. There used to be plenty of hostility coming toward primarily black people from white people — there were lynchings and other atrocities — and at that time, I’m figuring you would have feared white people — and rightfully so! Your admission that you don’t fear white people is an admission that white racism — as a big problem in America — is a thing of the past.

      I’ve never tried to scare you. If you knew me, you’d find out very quickly, that I’m one of the least scary people you’ll ever meet. And, of course, if you have nothing over which to feel guilty, then no one on earth could ever guilt trip you. If, however, you do understand, deep-down, that you have things in your life that are not right, then, of course, you’re going to think that everyone’s trying to guilt trip you.

      Finally, of course, there’s no such thing as “gaslighting.” It’s a made-up term for a non-existent phenomenon.

      As strange as it may sound, I love you, and I don’t want you to get suckered into extremist thinking no matter what side its on.
      My Reply:
      I’ll balance this against all the numerous times you told me that you’re not my friend — after I used the very phrase: “I like you” — so let’s just say that your feelings toward me are… complicated. Lol!

      Love me? No. Some small, grudging affection? Maybe. Were your feelings hurt when I turned the tables on you, went rogue, and started calling you names and insulting you? I think so. At the risk, of course, of reading your mind. However, you did change your tone as soon as I did that. I do think you’ve loved the challenge of interacting with me, else why would you have done so much of it? I’ve enjoyed our interactions as well.

      You’re already been suckered into extremist thinking… of the leftist variety. I’ve been trying to get you out of your extremist thinking. 🙂

      So, with that said, goodbye, xpraetorius. And even though I’m an agnostic, I’ll still pray for you.
      My Reply:
      Dude: This is the same kind of thing. You say things that make no sense! As an agnostic, to whom are you going to pray? To the earth? To “the heavens?” To “whom it may concern?”

      Want to be a better person? Decide once and for all whether you believe in God. And, if you do, believe in the Christian God, because the reasoning of Aristotle and Aquinas make sense. Read Edward Feser’s excellent book The Last Superstition. Recognize the indescribable, the magnificent, the incredible gift that is Jesus’s sacrifice on our behalf, and then take all your cares, your hurts, pains, worries, anxieties and lay them at His feet. Let Him take them off your shoulders, and let Him tell you how much He loves you. Because if you’re open to hearing Him, he’ll tell you, and you won’t be able to wrap your head around just how much He loves you, and wants all that is good for you. Then, tell Him that you want, that you need, Him in your heart and mind, that you need Him to take over your life and that you want, that you need, to turn your heart and mind over to Him, so that He may guide your thoughts and your footsteps. And He will give you peace. The peace that passeth all understanding.

      Years ago, I lost a son to a terrible birth defect. Several weeks later, in my head a voice sounded, loud and clear. It was in my head, but it was not me. The voice said, “The next one will be a girl, and she’ll be okay.” Plain as day. As those gentle words were sounding in my head, a feeling of extraordinary, indescribable peace came over me, along with an understanding that much more than that was “going to be okay” in my life. And it was. And the next one was a girl, and she was, is, way, way, way more than “okay.” The next one after that was a boy and he was, is, way, way, way more than “okay.” And there are more incidents in my life that have proven (yes, I used that word intentionally) that God acts overtly in our lives, and that He speaks to us… if, that is, we’re open to listening to Him, and to hearing Him. Open your ears, your mind and your heart to Jesus and let Him take over. You will become a better person. Automatically, steadily, and constantly… better. And you’ll be happy, and you’ll have peace.

      God bless you and yours, today on Good Friday, and every day, BW. May He bless you and keep you. May He make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May He lift up His countenace upon you, and may He bring you peace.

      It’s a paraphrasing of the beautiful passage in “Numbers,” and I mean it sincerely.

  2. Oh, I almost forgot.

    You’ll also bring the left as many times as possible into your response, because why not. And you may even bring back “bigoted bastard”, “Brotha Chicken” or “Brotha Crying Wolf” or a totally different name to call me while completely disregarding and misinterpret what I was trying to say, as always, to paint me out as someone you’ve decided to create while denying that there’s any emotion in your response whatsoever.

    Also, this isn’t trying to read your mind as you might include in your response. This is based on how you respond which came from your mind. Honestly, where else would your response come from if it’s all original?

    But I won’t back down. I’m leaving for my own good. You might count it as a “victory”, but I really don’t care. I still love you as a human being. And I hope that you will continue to open your mind and your heart and grow as a person.

    Anyway, goodbye and take care.

      My Reply:
      Well, the Left is, after all, the source of so much of what is wrong in America today. So, it would be a very good thing if I were to bring up the Left in my reply. Right? I don’t feel the need to call you any of those names. Though, they were good ones, don’t you think? Especially “Brotha Cryin’ Wolf,” and “Sheep in Wolf’s Clothing.”

      So, how did I misinterpret what you said?

      Dude: there’s always emotion in my responses. There’s emotion in everything that everyone does every time. There’s just not nearly as much emotion in my responses as you think there is. Dude: I write well, and I can write persuasively, and I can comvey emotion and passion in my writing, even if I’m bored and apathetic when I’m writing it. It’s a skill that allows me often to find the right way to express something, without necessarily writing from emotion. Reasoned writing — even if it’s filled with emotion and passion — is almost always better writing.

      My Reply:
      Very nice sentiments, BW! I love you as a human being too. I’m puzzled by your hope that I “continue to open my mind and my heart and grow as a person” I thought one of your main contentions was that I have never had an open mind or heart, and that I had never grown as a person. To “continue” to do those things is to have been doing those things right along, which contradicts what you’ve said many times.

      Please note, that I’ve never asked you to “back down.”
