Being Colorblind in America

This isn’t about the genetic condition of colorblindness, but rather not acknowledging the importance of ones melanin content of their flesh.  Today, being colorblind is somehow akin to denying the existence of racism in America, which is just a bullshit excuse to keep racialism alive and well in the country.

I was raised colorblind and it was quite effective.  The idea of “black” and “white” didn’t mean jack shit to me.  It made no sense to apply color to a human being.  I hung out with “black” kids, “white” kids and even a half Native American kid without ever a thought coming to my mind about how different they were to me.  In my mind, they weren’t different.  They were kids like me who wanted to have fun and that was it.  It wasn’t until high school did the racialist agenda get packed into my skull.  Race became important to acknowledge and bow down to.  My colorblindness was cast away for awhile as the education  system re-educated me on what race meant to others who weren’t lucky enough to escape the shackles of racialism.

Racialism are the shackles that keep us human beings subservient to the ruling elite.  It keeps us thoroughly divided without ever truly uniting against the common enemy we all have: the oligarchy.  The oligarchy is comprised of the Democrat and Republican parties. Despite their differences on the surface, beneath the exterior of benevolence lies the beating heart of a dark hydra (two heads, same body) that push the racialist agenda onto their constituents.  If power comes from unity then the idea of keeping us divided along racial lines is important to the two party oligarchy that seek to rule over us instead of working for us, which is the way it’s supposed to be.

There are those racialists who keep the lie alive by stating that being colorblind is false and denies racism. Being colorblind does not deny racism especially since we live in a racialist society.  Anyone who denies that racism exists from all sides of our society are delusional.  However, being colorblind and denying the existence of race is the first step in defeating racism.  By keeping race alive it keeps us divided along those lines which in turn keeps racism thriving in the deep, dark depths known white nationalism, black nationalism, hispanic nationalism…etc.  In order to bring down these walls of separation we have to acknowledge the fact that race doesn’t exist and is simply a byproduct of evolution and nothing more.  The melanin content of our skin does not make us any better or any worse than someone with a different melanin skin content.  Once we become educated on the facts will we then finally unite as human beings.

2016: The Fracturing of the Democratic and Republican Parties

Watching the insanity of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dealing with the fallout of her comments on Bernie Sanders and the disunity at the RNC last week, what we’re witnessing is (FINALLY) the fracturing of the two parties dominance over American politics.  Since I’ve been politically active I’ve never seen such deep fissures develop within the two major parties.  I celebrate these developing fissures because it finally allows for the seeds of Third Parties to take root and grow through.  So far, it seems that the Libertarian and Green parties may be able to finally develop momentum to progress and start taking seats of power in DC.

With the apparent sabotage of Bernie Sanders campaign by his own party perhaps we can see him break away from the Democratic Party and take up the reigns of another party that is willing to allow him to do his work in the way he wants to. What happened to Bernie Sanders was the act of a party willing to be tyrannical and unfair in its dealings with those whom they don’t agree with.  Bernie Sanders was right from the get go, that the system is rigged and he was the victim of a rigged system within his own party, the Democratic Party.

Ted Cruz, I wonder if he too was the victim of the rigged system within the Republican Party?  It would only make sense for the ascension of that Prince of Clowns Donald Trump.  Ted Cruz has the integrity to not bow down at the feet of Trump like all of the other fools in Jester Trumps court did at the RNC last week.  However, people have called into question the political future of Ted Cruz within the Republican Party.  That should concern Ted Cruz very much and should get the gears turning in his head whether or not he should jump off the sinking Republican ship and find a Third Party lifeboat waiting for him nearby.

As centrist I would rather be having an election between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.  Such an election would make it difficult to figure whom I’ll vote for, but I’d rather have that than having the option of Criminal Hillary or Criminal Trump.  The current two choices just make me want to write in George Carlins name rather than have to vote for the Democrat or Republican criminal.

Yes, I relish the deep fissures within both the Democrat and Republican parties because their power over American politics will begin (hopefully) to wane allowing for a Third Party to take up the challenge of leadership in America.  A true democracy doesn’t have you choosing trash over garbage.  A true democracy allows the trash, garbage and fresh to campaign for leadership.  So let both parties fall apart, don’t try to mend them.  They must understand that they can’t hold power forever and that eventually their tyranny can end allowing a Third Party into DC.

Ferguson Part Deux

So Ferguson is once again a flashpoint endemic of a society that thinks race is something to be held in a place of honor.  Sorry, but I don’t honor the illusion of race, I honor the Gods.  So, if you’re someone who believes is something to be proud of then please leave because this isn’t a blog that thinks race based on the melanin content (or lack thereof) of ones skin is something that should be held in sacrosanct.  I respect ethnic culture, but not race.  There is a vast different between the two.

Now, about Ferguson, even though I’ve never been to protest ever in my life I’m pretty certain throwing frozen water bottles at the police you say you fear is protesting really, but trying to instigate violence.  Ferguson protesters, the 1960’s called and they’re saying you’re protesting wrong! How are you going to say that you fear the police, but yet continue to provoke them, or try to anyway, into violent conflict?  Sorry, but I fear predatory creatures bigger than me so in no way would I provoke a lion or a tiger by throwing stuff at it.  Hel, I wouldn’t even do it if there were a group of people with me, because no matter what someone I call kin will get hurt in the process.  So not only are they trying to provoke the police, they’re being disregarding to the safety of their kin as well. How does that make for a peaceful protest?  How does that honor the slain?  It doesn’t.  It creates more problems than there should be.

I guess time will tell in what way this will all go in Ferguson.  I’m sure, like with everything in this society that relies on blurbs rather than in depth analysis, it’ll fizzle to nothing and on the next ratings inducing “crisis”. Black/White/Human Lives Matter?  Yeah, not really.  Ratings Matter, not the lives of people.  If people really, REALLY cared about others we wouldn’t be reducing ourselves to racial labels and uniting regardless of our melanin content.  If people really cared, there would be a diverse mosaic of people protesting PEACEFULLY (meaning not throwing stuff at police and trying to instigate violence) in Ferguson right now, but there isn’t and that’s absolutely disgraceful.

Cecil the Lion vs. Zimbabweans

I’ve refrained from entering this fray just to see how things pan out and of course it panned out with the Left shaming the Right as callous animal haters and the Right shaming the Left into being anti-Human folks.  I’m going to delve into a little bit of honesty, brutal honesty in fact and it’s not going to be pretty.

First, lets tackle the Rights lament for the Left not having a heart for the down trodden in Africa (or anyone who tries shaming those who support Cecil into feeling guilty), if you truly, TRULY cared about the plight of the downtrodden in Africa and Zimbabwe, you would be there right now sacrificing your cushy First World lifestyle and comfortable leisure time to help those less fortunate than you.  Fact is, you really don’t give a damn at all about those who are suffering in Africa or elsewhere.  You’re simply trying to make those who support Cecil feel like crap for what they hold dear to their hearts.  I feel that you are worse than those you are trying to shame because it’s simply fake. So for the sake of actual, true humanity, just stop it unless you’re willing to put your money where your mouth is and lead by example instead of strong words.

Second, the issue of Cecil is disturbing and I truly believe that lions should be placed on the endangered species list and that Cecil should serve as the figurehead of this much needed change.  However, this has been ongoing for years now, illegal poaching/trophy hunting, and NOW people are realizing the problem?  This is sickening and should have been addressed years ago, but because of the complacency of our apex species (yes apex because with our ability to innovate and our technology we have spread worldwide which makes us the dominant species) we’ve only begun to raise awareness for a travesty that may be too late.  We’ve also become quite callous to all life including our own.  My fear is that once the Cecil Furor dies down so will our faux compassion for animals.  We have become a sensation driven society that we have collective ADD where one issue trumps another issue until the next issue comes along to knock the previous one off the mantel.  We either need to stick to our guns or just simply be lulled back into our complacency for good.  There’s no sense in jumping from one issue to another without ever fully fixing the problem.  Yeah, it’s great that airlines won’t be shipping trophy heads of animals, but that’s one small solution for a relatively big problem and that’s to a) get endangered species onto the endangered species list and b) prosecute these folks to the fullest extent of the law with NO exceptions.

All life should be considered sacred and the death and plight of a living being should be met with sadness because we’re all related whether you believe a deity created us all or that we emerged from a common ancestor millions of years ago.

Of Cowardice, the Liberal Mindset

I have never been one to believe that Liberals are brave souls, but rather that they are indeed a bunch of cowards.  From their constant yelling down anyone who disagrees with them to calling their opponents ‘racists’, ‘homophobes’ and whatever other argumentum ad hominems they have for those who have contradictory views points to a coward mindset.  Why else would you not engage in civil discussion if they were truly tolerant and weren’t a coward?  How does that make them cowardly, you might ask?  Well, it’s simple, any logical counter argument against what they’ve held near and dear might make them actually think and thinking is scary to your run-of-the-mill Liberal.  Within that process of thinking are the seeds of doubt and once doubt sets in their future self might not be a Liberal anymore.  To be honest, that is frightening, who wants to be a crass, backwards thinking Neanderthal?  That, however, is what the Liberal elite breast feeds to their brethren in order to scare them into complacency.

However, this is not the only area in which Liberals show their cowardice.  In their endeavor to not offend anyone, unless it’s Christians then it’s all out war, they employ politically correct (modern Newspeak) terms to convey something that can be easily said in simple terms.  For exmaple, “A white American man of Italian descent who is a bit slow wants to become a woman.” becomes “An Italian-American male who is mentally challenged suffering from gender dysphoria wants gender reorientation surgery.”  The politically correct statement becomes ridiculously wordy in order to NOT offend a person.  But when it comes to Christians, as I’ve touched on earlier, it’s okay to offend them with horrid art that requires urinating or defecating on religious icons.  That’s fine!  However, you will NEVER see them offend Muslims in any way.  Another example is more anecdotal considering it’s a conversation I overheard at work.  One journalist was exclaiming how awesome it would be to see a fight between Thor and Jesus with Jesus being beaten down.  Now, I being of Asatru faith would probably agree, but why would a God fight a demi-god is beyond me.  Besides, Thor is not an asshole.  But I digress!  Why did it have to be Jesus? Why not Mohammed?  Why not Lord Buddha?  Why not Ganesh?  Because those would elicit that, within the Liberal circle, he was being intolerant and insensitive to the more ‘downtrodden’ religions.  I would be inclined to agree if it weren’t for the obvious, malicious bias and anti-Christian hate emanating from the two Liberal participants in the conversation.  In short, they were being cowards by using a religion which has no teeth in our society and no protection from criticism, like everything should have in a more reasonable society.  Liberals pick on Christianity because they are cowards whether due to fear from reprisals from Muslims or being called out by their Liberal peers.

Liberals may fool people with their faux moral compass, but to someone who has been on the Left and seen the venom and hate that comes from this portion of the political spectrum it is by far a smoke and mirrors game for them.  This is not to say that the Right doesn’t have it’s pitiful, hateful minions, but Liberals are more apt to pass themselves off as ‘compassionate’ and ‘tolerant’  when in fact they aren’t.  The Right side of the spectrum tends to be a bit more truthful in this respect.  If the demi-god status of Ayn Rand doesn’t reflect this then the viewer must be blind as a bat or in absolute denial.  Liberals will either pick fights they can’t win and scream at you with a volley of epithets or damn you with being a ‘racist’, ‘homophobic, ‘islamophobe’ backwards, intolerant Neanderthal.  When logic enters the discussion this is their ticket out of admitting that a Conservative may have a point.  They shrivel into their cowardly shells and admit nothing.  The best any opponent can do is simply be kind.  Don’t react with anger and hate, but with kindness.  And some logic.

Political Careers First

Today politicians have unanimously stated that their careers matter first and that America and Americans matter not to them. We are simply an endless bank account for them to live lavishly and leisurely while we the People slave away to make ends meet. And we are also the ones that provide the pathway to their careers via a road paved with our votes. Yup, we elected self-serving ingrates who are only out for themselves making laws that apply only to us and not them. A great example is the fact that ordinary Americans have to buy into ObamaCare or be fined a hefty amount of cash if you don’t while The President and Congress are exempt from this “great” idea of ObamaCare. If it’s good for us then it’s good for them as well. If it’s not good for them then by the Gods it is NOT good for us! This is the question that needs to be asked by the American people but unfortunately instead they’re sheep-mindedly accepting this horrendous piece of garbage as law. Guess what? You are Americans and as an American you don’t have to accept this failure of a law. Wake up, the Democrats and the Republicans don’t care about you. The only ones who care are the ones being called extremists, the Tea Party movement. They want maximum freedom while have government limited and back into the bass of individual states as per the 10th Amendment of our Constitution, the real law of the land.
