 Darkness Visible, Part III


We Have Lost





From Director Blue:
The most productive people, the small business owners, the entrepreneurs and the honest wage earners of America are so demoralized right now I am not sure we will recover as a country. We have lost the most important election of our lifetime and did so after giving our best effort, spent the most money ever and working the hardest we have ever worked. The very people that America needs the most to generate a real recovery now have the least motivation to do so and worse, lack the confidence necessary to even justify the effort. 


We opposed a foe who was so obviously incompetent, corrupt and inept in leadership we really expected a landslide victory and a redeeming mandate to return the nation to conservative values. Instead what we got was a harsh slap in the face by an American public telling us it is not like us and it no longer believes in what we believe in.

As a country we are hopelessly divided by a malignant polarization approaching that which divided us prior to the Civil War. Our side will not march in the streets, but the rebellion, protests and resistance will be just as determined -- though more subtle. The American can-do spirit, our optimism, our traditional dependence on our own ingenuity is now mere kindling on the advancing flame of an insidious yet steadily advancing socialism. 

Those of us who create real jobs, invest our capital, our fortunes and take the risks to build America, feel betrayed. The fundamentals of honest effort and hard work rendering the rewards associated with capitalism seem now like a cruel joke. We are now a targeted enemy not to be governed but coerced into submission by a lazy, corrupt, vindictive, arrogant government that is out for revenge, redistribution -- and to add a final insult -- one we believe is too morally bankrupt to lead. 


The usual safeguards for a democracy found in a vibrant, independent press have lost any semblance of objectivity and instead have joined a side. What used to be principled, independent reporters have morphed into dishonest pundits spewing a disgustingly relentless partisan bile that neither informs nor educates. They are shallowly manipulated by the political marketers to the point that their words lack meaning. The "fourth branch" of government has become nothing more than an empty cathode ray irradiating a mind-numbed audience like a repetitive Beavis and Butthead rerun.

We have elected a President who not only feels we did not work for what we have, but feels we do not deserve it either. 
PASTORIUS COMMENT:

The people who voted for Barack Obama did so knowing full well that his policies have plunged us further into a recession, devalued our currency, and destroyed the entrepreneurial spirit of our nation. They voted for him knowing that he essentially passed the Dream Act by Executive fiat, that he is attempting to force the Catholic Church to provide abortions, that he is using the EPA to shut down the coal industry, and that he is attempting to drive up the price of oil through the denial of the right to expand the oil production that our nation desperately needs.

The people who voted for Barack Obama do not believe in America, the Constitution, or the rights of We the People. They do not believe in property rights, the Free Market, or the freedom of speech or religion. They do not believe in Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

They do not believe in Freedom,

or at least not in the sense we believe in Freedom.

If you ask them, "Do you believe in Freedom?" they will tell you they do indeed.

But here is what Freedom means to these people:

Freedom means Free Stuff; free healthcare, free phones and free food stamps. Yes, that's right; a chicken in every pot, a government-arbitrated timeline on every life, and a free tracking device in every pocket.

Freedom, it seems, is pretty cheap, after all.

There's a lot of talk these days about asking ourselves what we did wrong, about how we could have communicated better, about how to win over hearts and minds in the future. I certainly do not believe Mitt Romney was the perfect candidate, or that we ran a perfect race. But never before has there every been such a clear choice between Freedom and Oppression. Americans have had Freedom and they willingly traded it in for baubles, bangles, and bullshit.

I see no way to help such people. I see no way to compromise with such people. I see no way to call such people my fellows.

They are not.

They are the engine of our oppression, they are the ear behind the door, they are our enemies.

A human being who is so low as to trade in his Freedom for chains is not to be trusted. If he can not be trusted with his own life, how can we trust him to be involved with ours?

I will no longer amuse myself with the idea that "Americans" are my brothers. If I were to do so, I'd be like the rat in the cage, endlessly pushing the lever that once gave him food.

I will not live my life in such illusions.

How on earth could this have ever happened you ask. Read a book, the Bell curve. Remember the kids in high school who were just plodding along? That's normal I.Q. for you, between 90 and 110. That is exactly half the population. The other half is evenly divided between above normal and below normal. Next look up average SAT scores by ethnicity. Factor in the State,Federal and union employees who have a vested interest and you have your answer. Four more years, another 20 million on food stamps and you have such a vested interest in voting Democrat that the only chance for a change can come from a total collapse of the economy.

Pastorius,

And that's the hideous truth.

And so is this from Ciccio:

Four more years, another 20 million on food stamps and you have such a vested interest in voting Democrat

People will not vote to end what they perceive as their entitlements. They might vote to end the entitlements of others, especially if there's not enough money to go around. Gimme warfare will continue as long as it can possibly continue.

How much does ethnicity have to do with all of this? Some, but ethnicity isn't the only factor.

I say that ethnicity is a factor because I do not personally know a single person of color who didn't twice vote for Obama. Not a single one! And, previously, some of these people whom I personally know, voted for a conservative candidate (or a more conservative candidate). I saw one African-American family who used to support Alan Keyes swing over hard to Obama; the woman works for the federal government, the man has his own software business, and the family lives in a mansion after working their way up the ladder.

Education, the lack thereof, is a bigger factor than ethnicity. But not for long -- I'm sad to say.

If there is a total collapse of the economy, I believe that the blame in most people's eyes will not fall to Obama. For a lot of reasons, he is able to escape accountability and blame.

Ethnicity has a lot to do with the way people behave. I am not sure what it is exactly. I don't believe there is anything inherently wrong with particular races. I am, as one would say, a person of color, however if I were an American, I wouldn't vote for Obama in a million years, even if my life depended on it.

I have traveled a lot as a flight attendant. And I have seen different cultures. You can see a clear distinction between "white" cultures and "non white" cultures.

I know many may perceive what I'm saying to be racist but that's not the point I'm making. I think there is a clear difference between the cultures. It is my opinion that if a person of color adopts what many perceive as the "White" culture, and what I call "civilization", they will come out to be a better person too.

This does not mean one has to change the way one speaks or dress differently or whatever, I am simply referring to the values of freedom, personal liberty, personal responsibility etc. I think that's what sets different peoples apart.

Sadly, a vast majority of people of my race or blacks or whatever else you have, have chosen to stick to their non civilized ways and have tried to change civilized countries and have tried to force them to adopt their ways.

And also, sadly, a lot of the "Whites" have decided to abandon civilization and prop up so called "eastern" cultures and have tried to sell them off as superior.

Having seen the world up close, from China to Russia to Africa to most of Europe, I can safely say that no culture exists today that is superior than that of the West (what it originally was shaped to be after the Renaissance). The rest of the world still lives a very barbaric life. The only good I saw in a lot of terrible places was what the people had adopted from the West, more specifically, from the United States.

Anyway, people can call me racist all they want, there is a clear divide between cultures and there is clearly a better culture out there. The West is decadent now because people have abandoned their far superior culture for the BS of "foreign cultures".

I really do not like the word "ethnicity." I think it is a fudge that allows racists to communicate their racist ideas without sounding racist.

There is race and there is culture. It's as simple as that.

Ethnicity is supposed to be some sort of blending of the two.

Does anyone really believe there is such a blending?

If so, what is the mechanism of the blending?

It reminds me of the mind/body argument in philosophy; the question being, if the mind and body are two different substances, how do they communicate?

Descartes actually answered that question by saying the meeting of the mind and body was transmitted by the pineal gland.

But that is just kicking the can down the road.

The question immediately arises what does the pineal gland do to transmit the ideas of mind to the physicality of body?

It's just stupidity?

Now, we have other ways of explaining these things.

We know the brain is the body. And, the information is transmitted via chemical interactions.

Now back to the question at hand; Race and Culture.

We as human beings produce ideas.

Ideas exist OUTSIDE OF THE BODY.

They are separate entities, unlike experiences within the body, they are capable of beingand shared, transmitted from one human being to another.

That is to say, I can never know what it feels like to be inside your body. But, I can hear the ideas you share about your experience.

Culture is made up of ideas. Ideas can be communicated and they can be judged according to their relative truth and effectiveness.

If ideas, when applied, do not work, then we should not respect them, no matter whose culture they come from.

95% of black people believe the government should provide them with a job.

That belief is not the result of race. It is the result of bad ideas in black culture.

I think it simply doesn't occur to most westerners to do the right things these days. Perhaps their parents didn't teach them to reason things through or to see the way the larger issues and ideas tend to fit together. That and the fact that terrorism essentially works like a poker in the ass when its intended victims don't tend to reason things through much.

For example, when people see planes fly into towers they tend to go: "Oh wow, that's just terrible - especially for all those poor people trapped right there in the thick of it. And of course this is terrible for my country as a whole, and for all of us and everything. Yup. Well .. On with my life though. Gotta keep moving.

Only that's not quite the optimal way to think about it. The optimal way is to start asking hard questions and following where they lead you. Questions like:

1. Aside from the fact that I was not personally in the thick of that particular horror, what is the essential difference between those people and myself?

Well, they were on a plane. Yes, I've been on a plane before... And I guess many were in high-rise buildings too ... Hmm, I've been in high-rise buildings ...hmm, anything else? Well, they were in those specific planes and buildings at specific time and on a specific date. And I, ... was not. Oh I get it. Basically, the difference between them and me is chance or random fate. All right, so it could just as easily have been me. Next question.

2. Exactly who did this to us - to ME? And just what the fuck's their sick-ass problem, anyway?

I believe that if more people had simply gone though the above process of reasoning things through, they would not have "moved on" and history would now be different indeed. George W. Bush would never have been allowed to get away with his horrendous "ROP" mischaracterization, the MSM would have been forced by the people to fess up, and Barack Hussein Obama would never have been elected the first time around. Instead, a modern day Charles Martel would surely have risen and whipped his skinny ass. Maybe a Charles Martel in the form of one Allen West.

If anyone reads what I wrote above and feels that they maybe ought to go back to that fateful day for another chance to get things right in their heads, then why not spend a few minutes with Kevin Michael Cosgrove. They're the last agonizing few minutes of his life. I doubt that he ever knew the why. He doesn't say anything to indicate he knew the why. If he had known, he might have said something about it. Then perhaps the operator could have scolded him as he died about his islamophobia.

While I agree that a lot of people don't understand or don't want to understand what happened and why Muslims attacked America, you can't possibly feel disappointed about Cosgrove not worrying about the who and the what while trying to stay alive.

Whether he knew or he didn't doesn't freakin matter. The responsibility of knowing and spreading the truth is on those who survived that and countless other attacks by Muslims on non Muslims.

I don't know if you meant to insinuate that Cosgrove should have done or said something different on the phone but if it really is what you meant to say then your comment is outright sick!

The reason I brought up ethnicity was because I live in Canada where some 40 years ago the floodgates to immigration were opened. Now the convenience stores and taxi drivers are almost all Asian, ethnicity is the reason because in these societies the whole family working around the clock to support the family is the norm. Likewise you see the Sikh taxi driver in his cab 14 hours a day seven days a week so that his children can go to university. Canada is a far more egalitarian society than the US, the schools have always been totally integrated yet now with the second and third generation we have problems with black underperformance and drop-outs. The fact that all national I.Q. tests, be they the SAT's or the army show a difference of about 20% in all socio-economic classes can only be attributed to race.

C,

But you seem to be pointing at cultural norms...

As Pasto pointed out, there are no INHERENT race habits or norms. These norms are what different societies and cultures make them out to be.

And yes, I agree with you that the problems you point out are ingrained in the cultures of Indians, Pakistanis and blacks but what's to say that those people couldn't adopt, as their own, the culture of the West, or specifically, Canada or the US? And by culture, again, I mean ideals and not specifically dress code or way of speech.

A good op-ed by Caroline Glick:

"...But all the dependency champions who celebrated on Tuesday night cannot stop the coming storm. The greatest advantage Obama had going into the election was not demography but the fact that the full consequences of his statist economic policies and his pro-jihadist foreign policy have not yet been felt.

Nationalized healthcare will only be fully implemented in 2014. Americans will only begin watching old men and women die because the federal government denied them lifesaving, but expensive treatments a year from now. They will only lose their doctors due to dwindling Medicare reimbursements in a year.
College students who got out the vote for Obama will only find themselves doomed to low-paying jobs and a life of indebtedness as they fail year in and year out to pay off their college loans, in a year or two. And by the time they realize what it means to be saddled with a national debt of $16 trillion, they will be locked into a government-controlled economy that requires them to keep their silence or lose their livelihoods..."

Sorry if I was unclear. No, of course I didn't mean to "insinuate" he should have done or said something differently while speaking to the emergency dispatcher on the phone. What I was driving at is that if he HAD said something to indicate he understood his building was attacked specifically by Islamic terrorists (maybe because he recalled the WTC was attacked by Islamic terrorists in '93 for example) that his awareness of who was attacking him, combined with the simple act of telling someone else his suspicions regarding the identy of the perpetrators, would have constituted "islamophobia" as currently defined by the terrorists themselves, islamic apologists everywhere, and by the filthy islamophillic MSM.

Ponder it long and hard.

Anon,

Thanks for clarifying that.

With that said, you're preaching to the choir. I don't need to ponder long and hard about this. I'm an ex Muslim. I know all about the death cult that is Islam. No not the misunderstanding of Islam, the actual islam is nothing but a death cult. Everyone else on this website knows and speaks out about Islam too.

But I do understand your frustration with the mainstream BS that is fed to the public about Islam.
