IT'S NOT RACIST WHEN THE TARGET IS LARRY ELDER, A BLACK GOP CONSERVATIVE

Worth repeating…

Why Isn’t the Attack on Larry Elder the Biggest Story in America?

A white woman in a gorilla mask threw an egg at a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of our largest state, and the media shrug.

The woman who threw the egg at Elder would find her picture, her name, and everything she’d ever said on social media scrutinized at great length and on the home pages of the leading news sites. Her appearance would be mocked by late-night comedians. Dozens of reporters would be sent out to learn this woman’s story, to check out where she lived, where she worked, and where she went to school.

To its credit, the Los Angeles Times did mention the attack on Elder, although its headline elided the nastiness of what occurred in what smacked of victim-blaming: “Larry Elder cuts short Venice homeless encampment tour after hostile confrontation.” If Elder had been a Democrat, I suspect the headline would have been “Racist attacker in gorilla mask lobs egg at Larry Elder.” After burying the lede — the California paper mentioned the attack in the second graf, the race and costume of the person attacking him in the fourth — the report did say “ape characterizations have been used as a racist trope for centuries.” But that was it, the sole reference to racism in the story. The LA Times didn’t bother to investigate Elder’s attacker, nor even provide her name.

Please do not insult me by pretending that you do not understand the context and history of black folks being subjected to gorilla references. Please do not tell me that a person wearing a gorilla mask who targeted a Democrat would not be tagged as guilty of the most vicious variety of racism. Please do not tell me that progressives can’t be racist. <Source>

Truth be told…

The Democrats are the party of racism, slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and voting against civil rights legislation. To pretend otherwise is to be intellectually dishonest and a racist progressive communist democrat.

It is time to recall Gavin Newsom and replace his sorry elite ass with Larry Elder, the candidate with real-world experience from the hood in South Central Los Angeles.

If Newsom is not recalled, look for $7.00 gas…

GAVIN NEWSOM-GAS

We are so screwed.

FORGET AFGHAN WOMEN, CONCENTRATE ON AMERICANS

Before we start decrying the racism, misogyny, and lack of diversity in the Taliban government, a perfect reflection of dominant non-white patriarchy…

UN: Afghan Women Refuse to Be 'Erased'

The United Nations Women’s agency expressed its “profound” disappointment Wednesday at the lack of female participants in Afghanistan’s new Taliban transitional government.

“It is unacceptable that the international community would accept that women are not part of the government,” U.N. Women’s deputy representative for Afghanistan, Alison Davidian, told reporters via a video call from Kabul. “Not just for Afghanistan, but for any country.”

In announcing a new acting government on Tuesday, the Taliban — known for their severe repression of women’s rights during their previous tenure in the 1990s and early 2000s — presented a slate of male-only ministers. The Ministry of Women's Affairs was also missing from the list.

Respect for women’s rights is a litmus test for any governing authority and against which any governing authority must be judged,” Davidian said. “But with the announcement yesterday, the Taliban missed a critical opportunity to show the world that it is truly committed to building an inclusive and prosperous society.” <Source>

Yada. Yada. Yada.

America must stand up for America and Americans…

America Must Stand Up for Fundamental Rights of Afghan Women

With the world watching in horror, the hasty withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan resulted in the Taliban’s near complete control over Afghanistan’s population of 40 million.

[OCS: The world may be watching in horror, but it has nothing to do with civil rights, race, diversity, or even Afghanistan. The horror is the speed at which America has collapsed under the progressive communist democrats and the Obama/Biden and the Biden/Obama Administrations.

We cannot protect ourselves, and they have come to realize we can no longer protect them as the world’s policeman with a degree of moral authority. They have learned that the United Nations is a corrupt, useless organization and that the Chinese Communists can unleash a global pandemic with near-perfect impunity.]

The Taliban is a brutal, repressive, Islamist regime that almost certainly will perpetuate severe human rights abuses against the Afghan population, making its return to power particularly catastrophic for women.

[OCS: Nothing new here as this has been known for decades. What we in the West may regard as brutal and repressive is normal and customary behavior dictated by the Islamic religion and Shariah law.]

This betrayal of the Afghan people—not to mention U.S. citizens and allies left behind—is especially harsh coming from the very leaders within the Biden administration who claim to be the ultimate champions of human rights.

[OCS: U.S. citizens remaining in Afghanistan is a separate issue, and those Afghans who assisted American efforts are escaping death, not their religion or its practice.]

Although President Joe Biden remarked in an Aug. 16 speech that “human rights must be the center of our foreign policy,” his promise rings hollow to the millions of Afghans who now are at the mercy of the Taliban to exercise their fundamental rights—to life, religious belief, conscience, and speech.

[OCS: Americans should not confuse, conflate, or impose their interpretation of human rights on an essentially ignorant medieval or pre-modern society. It was the idea that we could recreate these foreign individuals into democracy-loving citizens with a constitution that caused the catastrophe we are now witnessing.

We should have punished those who allowed terrorists to use their facilities to foment terror against the United States and then left them to their own lifestyle, warning them we would be back in force if necessary.

Who, in our government, the think tanks, and the NGO’s thought that the democratization of Afghanistan was possible and that it was morally defensible to force individuals to conform to our Western way of life after millennia of theocratic practice and rule?

A Taliban official recently told Reuters that the new government structure will not be a democracy, but “will protect everyone’s rights.” But even these tepid assurances of a kinder and gentler Taliban government are made with the caveat that the Taliban’s version of Shariah law will be the ultimate framework.  <Source>

[OCS: Why should we or why would we expect anything different?]

Bottom line…

It is time for the progressive communist democrats in Washington, even those who may be naively well-meaning, to leave Muslim nations alone – until they engage in terrorism and conquest. We should punish aggressors who threaten our way of life but assume no moral responsibility to reconstruct what we have destroyed nor engage in the Westernization of people who do not understand our culture and, in many cases, reject it as corrupt, immoral, and unjust.

Enough with faux diplomacy to assuage domestic public opinion and attempt to encourage the international community's applause. Demand that we retrieve our citizens and select others – backed by overwhelming force and no concern for collateral damage or the Communist Chinese, Pakistanis, Iranians, and Russians who moved into the region. Give them 72-hours to demonstrate compliance or evacuate our embassy and Bagram before they are destroyed.

Enough with the idea that you can change a society lacking civic institutions, deep educational resources, industrialization, and a self-sustaining economy into a modern nation with human rights that defy millennia of religious practices.

And enough, with the pussies in the State Department that care more about their jobs than our Constitution, our nation, and the soldiers in the field.

We are so screwed.
