It’s been a very bad night. I’m on about four hours of sleep (no, not my health. Just… stuff going on that’s not mine to tell) and I was going to write a rather innocuous post on the state of the writer. Things like “I am almost over the cold and torn between finishing the fricking novel already and almost done with finishing the shelves and want to go assemble and set up my frigging library. Also, the house must be somewhat cleaned today, and why doesn’t the day have 48 hours?”
But then I went to Facebook. Which these days is mostly where I come across “real live leftists” who aren’t as stupid as Occasional Cortex (Yes, I DO know that bookworm room says she’s dangerous and therefore we should always address her seriously and respectfully, and without a hint of mockery. I disagree. Obama got that treatment and the presumption of intelligence on nothing much [you know we never saw a grade, an IQ test or any proof of his supposed brilliance.] I think we should have mocked him relentlessly from the moment he opened his indoctrinated, unthinking mouth in public.) or as completely insane as Maxine Waters. Okay, some of them are, but not the majority. They are just dupes, for whom it is infinitely easier to believe what the talking heads and their professors tell them and not to compare it to reality. Some of them have even been sold on the crazy “personal reality” theory which of course excuses them from thinking and allows them to continue comfortable and happy as part of the herd.
So I stumbled on a thread where someone was justifying the abuse rained on the Covington boys, the provocation by a professional activist of a bunch of INNOCENT HIGH SCHOOLERS and the subsequent abuse in the media of innocent families and schools by saying that the MAGA hat stands for racism, sexism and oppression.
The thing is, I’m sure the MAGA hat stands for that in this liberal’s head. Just like Trump is “literally” Hitler.
But can ANYONE point to a single instance of MAGA-HATTED crowds being racist, sexist, homophobic or oppressive? Yeah, I’m sure there’s an individual somewhere (though curiously not so far caught on camera. At least not any non-false-flag individual) because in a country of 300 million, there are people who believe that Star Trek was real. But seriously: in terms of policy (and don’t tell me excluding immigrants. Being foreign or from a shithole country is NOT a race. And the fact you think it is tells us where the racist is) what has Trump done that is racist? Sexist? Homophobic?
WHERE HAS ANY OF THIS HAPPENED OUTSIDE SOMEONE’S HEAD?
So, I want to caution our countrymen (in the presumption somewhere deep inside they’re still such) to consider VERY CAREFULLY what standard they want to hold others to. Because most surely, in the end, this is the standard they’ll be held to.
Remember that “judge not, lest you should be judged” it wasn’t against having an opinion, but against being careful what standards you use on others, because in the end, ALWAYS they will be used on you. Sooner or later. And it’s way later than the left thinks.
Judging people by either what was inside the judge’s head (prejudice in its absolute meaning) or by the theories the judge has (which leads to all the happy fun psychoanalyzing of the right. Sure, we could be afraid of people who aren’t like us, and that’s why we cling to our guns and Bibles. Or we could have seen what happened to countries where people don’t/didn’t. And not being completely stupid we insist on being prepared. Oh, not against the people who don’t look like us. It would be much easier if all leftists and their willing dupes had purple hair they don’t give to themselves. It would make life much simpler. But alas, it’s not like that. The left looks like us enough. But people who act like them are responsible for deaths upward of a hundred million and likely more) is responsible for genocide, massacre and most of the genuine MASS oppression in the world. Certainly for the mass deaths of innocents.
It also allows someone to say that if someone wears a short skirt they totally meant to be raped, because that’s inside the head of the people saying so.
So, again, I ask the left: is that how you wish to be judged? I don’t have to have a iota of evidence that you personally support the genocide of a 100 million people? I am allowed to look at your wearing a shirt emblazoned with a mass murderer’s likeness (Che Guevara) NOT give you the benefit of the doubt? I don’t need to go “perhaps this person is just an idiot, who’s been maleducated. He’s still a human being, and I shouldn’t consider hurting/killing him/her without proof this particular person is actually an evil commie who wants to kill me and mine?
Cool. Let’s dance to that music, if that’s what you want. And note that’s what you’re saying with your actions. Because your culture heroes are not only people that PROVABLY have hurt people and taken their stuff — Lenin, Che, Mao, Stalin, Ho Chi Min, Chavez, and the beat goes on — and taken countries to unimaginable poverty which secondarily kills and destroys millions more, but you, yourself constantly talk about killing people and taking their stuff. Or you idolize people like Occasional Cortex and Elizabeth Warren who advocate this OPENLY AND IN PUBLIC.
So, is that the music you want to dance to?
Because you’re openly putting words in the mouth of more than half this country — yes, more than half. Probably around 75% judging by how hard your side pushes fraud and tries to prevent any fraud-stopping measures, not to mention the serfs you’re trying to import — and imparting to use crazy motives. Wanting to make America Great Again is only racist if you think America was all white when it was great. (Say, the 1980s.) Again, I think we found the racist.
I know stepping out of the herd is difficult, and you’re afraid they’ll turn on you. (They will, but to be fair they will even if you don’t turn.) But this herd is being led to an abattoir and Donald Trump’s election should have been your sign that most of us have had enough, and not that it would be a great idea to keep pushing.
I implore you to attempt to think beyond the shibboleths you’ve been given and to actually look around at the people you live near, who are not evil ogres that need to be watched by enlightened progressives all the time.
In fact, we’re by and large decent people which is why we’ve let your crazy get to this point, while you accuse us of the horrible things that exist only inside your head.
But we’re getting very tired of this game. Because the rules aren’t applied equally. And even those of us who really don’t want to dance are getting to the point we wonder if there’s any other solution. And thinking no there isn’t. Unless we want to allow you to take us all the way to Venezuela.
And you know, the thing is, if you hate us so much, there’s a million places you can go to: Most of Europe (if they’ll have you. Like most socialists they’re not very open to immigration from the first world. There’s a chance, after all, you’ll tumble to the game.) Pretty much all of Africa. China. All of America from the Tijuana border on down. All of them live by the rules you want to bring here. If you really believe in them, pack your bags and go.
But if you are using those rules and the ideas in your head to gain power or money, or under the delusion you’ll be eaten last, I’m telling you to stop it.
We have nowhere to go. And we’re really, really tired of your pushing.
Any minute now, we’ll start applying to you the rules you apply to us. We’re going to assume you MEAN WHAT YOU SAY OUT LOUD.
We’re going to assume you both want to be judged by what’s in other people’s heads, and that you really mean what you say when you say you want to wood-chip innocent boys who happen to wear hats you don’t like. We’re going to assume you really believe in fixed pie economics, and therefore want to steal all the stuff we actually worked for and built. We’re going to assume you know Che’s biography and wish to emulate him.
And then it’s on. And you won’t like this. We’re not the caricatures in your heads. There’s more of us than you think, and while we might not be supermen/women we’re by and large, man on man and woman on woman WAY more competent than you are.
You see, we didn’t get the liberal-privilege help to get where we are, any of us. Instead we had to climb, build and make against the background of your prejudice and the lies in your head about us.
We have built that. And we know how to build and make and create. Which is a tad more difficult than the shitbird destruction and whining you engage in.
Which means if we turn us to destruction, we’ll be really, really good at it.
So, think about it. This is the game you’re playing. You’re begging us to engage with the same rules. It might not be what you think you’re doing, but last weekend you made it very clear it’s what you’re doing. You couldn’t have picked more innocent people to attack, nor could you have fallen behind a more corrupt “activist” unless you know, it were Che himself.
The masks are off. This is a good thing. With the masks off we can all see clearly.
Forgot what TV, your professors and your wishful thinking tell you about how stupid we are. Consider accomplishments. Consider that most of us not only survive but thrive despite everything you do to hold us back. Consider for a moment that your lovely constructs of institutionalized racism/sexism/patriarchy don’t exist. Not here. Not in the direction you think.
Then ask yourself: Is this really the game you want to play?
Because it’s way later than you think.
Once the game starts, you can’t back out. And there is no arrow of history. There is no scripted end. That only happens in your head, and the world is not inside your head. You can choose to look outside your head, question what you’ve been told, engage real people. Or you can carry on in this path with the understanding that people not inside your head get a say.
So again, are these your rules? Is this the game you want to play?
