Danegeld, Cuban style

Raul Castro: US must return Guantánamo for normal relations | The Miami Herald The Miami Herald:

Like every other leadership in the world with balls, like em or not, the Cuban Communists understand Barry Hussein's "openness" as the weakness that it is.

This is what you get when you make an affirmative akshun hire.

Not too fine a point

From the manosphere, where young men dominate, this uber-blunt assessment of our troubles, in this case with wymyn. But it's true across the board for all the other victim groups who now rule the West:

The ultimate enablers of feminism (and liberalism) are not women, but other men. Were it not for the men who supported Christian “social purity” movements like Prohibition in the early 20th century, women would have never gotten the vote. Were it not for horny Boomers who wanted to do it in the road, Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan would have been laughed off as cranky harridans. Were it not for limp-wristed GenX manboys like Kurt Cobain, the Violence Against Women Act would have died in committee. 
Behind every Strong, Independent Woman™ is a man making her existence—and delusions—possible. And when that man decides he’s had enough, she’s finished.

As the Russian playboy said, "What could they ever ever take from us that we didn't actually let them?"

American Sniper

Mr B and I took in this flick yesterday aft. Quite good.

If original director Steven Spielberg had not resigned from the project and Clint Eastwood not taken over, it might have been one more Hollywood film where the US military men are either victims or criminals.

The trailer sets up some of the tensions. The two sides have quite different norms about what constitutes acceptable behavior. I am led to wonder if most men raised in the West these days are capable of being warriors.

Bradley Cooper reveals himself to be a good actor. He normally plays more lightweight types, but was convincing as a tough Navy Seal from Texas. Chris Kyle, on whose life this movie is based, was neither a victim nor a criminal. He was a soldier.

Horse('s ass) of a different color

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is "devastated" for offending People Of Color by referring to them as Colored People.

Pathetic and sickening.

And this is a culture which rolls its eyes at times when there was a crucial iota of a difference at stake between homoousios and homoiousios.

Either you're the master or the slave, it seems.

Time wasters

Ann Coulter, while dumping on Trump as a possible presidential candidate, reminds us that the American electorate has never chosen a president who lacked previous government experience, elected or appointed to office, or serious military leadership.

Same goes for Great RightWing Black Hope Du Jour Dr. Ben Carson.

She asks the good question as to why, given the probabilities, feckless Republicans would waste time on men whose chances of being elected are so small?

Because they are feckless, I guess.

Feckless, by the way, comes from a Scottish take on the English effect-less.

My daily vent

Since ExC is the place where I dump my anger so that I can be charming and civilized in my relations with actual people, here's another installment:

I came across a piece of legislation passed in 2014 by the US Congress, both Houses, by unanimous voice vote. One more piece of Nanny State law sinking its tentacles into my life. My reaction was visceral.

I would watch with satisfaction if the whole lot of them, every one without exception, were dragged out into the street and hung from lamp posts.


My idea, by the way, for an excellent plan for a border fence with Mexico.




There. Now, off to coffee with a friend  --an irredeemable liberal, but a nice guy--and then to the gym.

Contraculturalism

The ground of multiculturalism, that all cultures are equal --except Western culture, which is irredeemably bad-- is beside the point. Arguing about it is a pointless circularity.

The question is not a comparison of goodness or worth, but of compatibility.

And clearly all cultures are not compatible, especially not in close proximity. The incompatibility results in destruction and death.

Who in their right mind would try to make a single "nation" out of Pakistanis and Japanese, out of Han Chinese and AustroAborigines, out of Zulus and Icelanders?

That is why it is outrageous and immoral that there are Somalis in Minnesota and Muslims in France.

A French identitarian spokesman described the current state of his country thusly, "The so-called multicultural paradise has become a multiracial hell."

And why it is a fatal waste of time to continue to make-believe that the descendants of the European peoples and the African peoples will some day arrive at equality and compatibility within the same political territories.


PS. Since we are still within the Octave of the Solemnity of St Martin Luther King, Savior of America, it's worth noting the assessment of another Evil White Male that aforesaid Saint is not an American hero, much less a White one, but is the national father of another race and people, alien and hostile. Which is ExC's current position.

(The) Article

Ms Coulter chides Ms Maddow on her use of the article "the."

MSNBC's Maddow now rewriting instant replays | Human Events:

What a difference an article makes. The vs nothing.

Blacks vs The Blacks.

Referring to Blacks --which in our hypercorrect times is now kinda edgy-- is borderline tolerable, but to refer to "the Blacks" is a racist crime. Like Ross Perot's "you people."

When we --the Whites-- say "the Blacks", this is a heinous Othering of our African-American fellow-citizens and brothers and sisters. Well, we are not their brothers and sisters. They only refer to one another as brutha or sista. Not us. Hmmm.

Anyway, using Blacks without the article implies that this group is included in Us and we are working out some family problems.

Yeah, right.

Using "the Blacks" implies that they are somehow outsiders, not us, Others, even aliens. A group with interests and agendas not only competitive but hostile and aggressive toward us. (So?) Next step? Well, objectification, gasp!, dehumanization, death camps. Blah blah blah. Like all the ones George Bush had set up for the gays.

Truth is, "the Blacks" do not see "Whites", or as the code-switching Obamacenity in the White House likes to say, "White folks" as anything other than Other. Had you not noticed? But we are not allowed to return the favor.

Except here at ExC, where Othering continues apace.

Whether the Blacks like it or not.

It's MLK Day!!!

My take on this increasingly bizarre commemoration. Which, no surprise, I will not be celebrating. He ain't my peeps. Au contraire.
