Political Correctness run Amuck. No More “Appropriating” Another Ethnic Group’s “Artistic” Expression. What…Are You Crazy? That is, Of Course, RAAAACIST!
What would Salon think of an article called, ‘Why I can’t stand Asian musicians who play Beethoven’?
Women I have confronted about this have said, “But I have been dancing for 15 years! This is something I have built a huge community on.” These women are more interested in their investment in belly dancing than in questioning and examining how their appropriation of the art causes others harm. To them, I can only say, I’m sure there are people who have been unwittingly racist for 15 years. It’s not too late. Find another form of self-expression.

Blacks Want Everyone to Celebrate Their Heritage, But Whites are Racists if They Celebrate Theirs? WTF?
Micro aggression on wheels
Via The Black Sphere
Georgia officials approved a specialty license plate that features the Confederate battle flag. How long do you think it took for the “civil rights advocates” to end their tea break?
Don’t expect these race pimps to get upset about the black people killing other blacks, when there is a LICENSE PLATE TO PICKET!
The claim is that the license plate is a reminder of slavery, Jim Crow, and the Klan…all DEMOCRAT institutions.
What race-baiting black Liberals want is the complete white-washing of white Southerners’ past. Forget your history, abandon your heritage, because it any part of it is tainted in today’s politically correct world.
The Catholic church had the Crusades, Germany gassed the Jews, and so on. For blacks, no harm no foul, at least not when there are Southerners trying to be proud of their heritage. Not knowing one’s heritage can allow you to create whatever you background choose. It’s convenient for Liberal blacks to forget that Africans were sold into slavery…by other AFRICANS. And nothing has changed. Modern-day slavery black slave owners — black Liberal “leaders” like the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) — are the new Anthony Johnson’s (the first slave owner in America, and he happened to be black).
The CBC sells more blacks into slavery than all the African tribes combined.
Blacks seem to be proud of this heritage of blacks selling other blacks, embracing “African” in front of American, though 99.9 percent of blacks have never been to African and can’t tell you from what tribe they descend.

The Unfortunately Innate Nature of Intelligence
By: Fred Reed
(Excerpts from the article)
Human races are subspecies of Homo sapiens (sic), just as basset hounds and Chihuahuas are subspecies of dog. The breeds of neither are precise genetic categories: In the words of the heroic John Derbyshire, genetically “what you see is a continuum with some pretty sharp clines.” Yet the genetic commonalities are sufficient to be obvious: At a glance one can distinguish between a Japanese and a Norwegian, or a Siberian wolf hound and a dachshund…
Here we should note the dual modes of viewing intelligence, specifically Normal Mode and Racial Mode.
In Normal Mode, we all know what we mean by intelligence, and we all recognize that people vary greatly in how much of it they have. If John could read classical Greek at age three and graduated in mathematics from CalTech at fifteen, we would all agree that he was bright. If I said at a cocktail party, “Whoa! That gal Therese is smarter than five whips wired in parallel. Anybody got her phone number?” no one would tell me that I was a bigot or that Therese had exactly the same intelligence as everyone else. Rather they would say that I Just knew a good thing when I saw it.
In Group Mode, everything changes according to the group being discussed. If I said that Jews were smart, and adduced all manner of achievements over the centuries, no one would deny it. Similarly for the Chinese. If I said however that Australian aborigines were inferior in IQ, I would be told as follows: Intelligence does not exist; it is a social construct; it is culturally determined; it can’t be measured; it has no genetic basis; the tests are biased; lack of achievement is caused by discrimination, or institutional racism running through Australian society, or geographic considerations. Whereas if I said that Italians were of low intelligence the response would be to produce counter evidence, in the case of the aborigines it would be to give all manner of reasons why there was no counter evidence…

Diversity Is Strength! It’s Also…A Police State Superbowl
Above, Bronco quarterback Peyton Manning (left); Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson (right).
Today, the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks football franchises will participate in the 48th playing of the National Football League’s Super Bowl.
Would even one of the fans then sitting in the Los Angeles Coliseum have believed that the same venue would see the US national soccer team booed in favor of the Mexican —or that a Los Angeles Times columnist would praise this development? [Again, it's red, white and boo, By Bill Plaschke, June 26, 2011]
Would even one fan believe that an elite academic institution, Stanford University, would not only willingly abandon the teaching of Western Civilization course required of all freshmen (“Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western culture’s got to go…”—Jesse Jackson), but consider Richard Sherman’s worthy of admission despite his low SAT score just because he runs an above-average 40 time?
How could you convince those fans, who had casually strolled into a stadium with almost no security, that to enter Super Bowl 48, they’d be subjected to an invasive search of their person, presumed a potentially terrorist threat until deemed innocent and worthy to enter the stadium?
More than 30 federal agencies, 100 law enforcement agencies, 700 state troopers, 3,000 private security officers, snipers hidden on among the crowd, US Army Black Hawk attack helicopters enforcing a 10-mile “no fly zone” around the stadium, and US Air Force F-16s on emergency stand-by will protect this XLVIII playing of the Super Bowl.
The America of 1967, when the first Super Bowl was played, was 90 percent white, bursting with social capital and upward mobility for its citizens. But, thanks to the 1965 Immigration Act and the simultaneous collapse of immigration enforcement, the America of 2014 is a country where the majority of births are non-white, the middle class is shrinking—and the state of social capital is devastatingly summed up by the Police State measures required to ensure the safety of a football game.
Fans with tickets to the 2014 Super Bowl can’t even tailgate outside MetLife Stadium. [No tailgating at Super Bowl, By Jane McManus, ESPN, December 9, 2013] You can’t even walk to the stadium, with the NFL devising “Fan Express Zones” (at a cost $51 per ride), where you can board a bus and be shuttled to and from the Broncos-Seahawks game. [You Can’t Walk to the Super Bowl Because You Are the NFL’s Personal ATM, By Sean Conboy, Sports Illustrated, January 28, 2014]
What would one of those 1967 fans have thought if they’d be able to see Super Bowl 48? (Mind you, the number of black players on the field in that first game resembles the number of white players on the field in today’s game.)
You don’t have to be InfoWars.com’s Alex Jones to understand something is seriously wrong, as police state measures are implemented not just in the NFL and at the Super Bowl, but across all of America. [NFL wants pat-downs from ankles up at all stadiums, USA Today, September 15 2011]
Jones, whose webzine is one of the fastest growing media organizations precisely because so many Americans are becoming increasingly worried about their freedoms, has called for a boycott of the NFL, arguing that the league’s TSA-style security at stadiums is just another way of conditioning fans to accept the encroaching police state. [NFL Faces National Protest, Infowars.com, December 4, 2013]
Purses and backpacks have been banned from games, with the Department of Homeland Security providing a stamp of approval for the NFL’s safety measures. [NFL Bans Purses and Backpacks, Limits Fans to One Gallon-Sized Baggie, By Zenon Evans, Reason, August 6, 2013]
Jones noted, in announcing his decision to call for a boycott of the NFL, that the league vetoed a Super Bowl commercial by rifle manufacturer Daniel Defense:
The company’s “offensive” ad depicts a former marine arriving home to greet his wife and child, accompanied by a voice over stating, “no one has the right to tell me how to defend them.”
The ad supposedly violates the NFL’s advertising guidelines, which bar ads featuring “firearms, ammunition or other weapons,” even though the ad doesn’t actually show any of the above, aside from an illustration of their popular DDM4 rifle featured below Daniel Defense’s logo.
[National Movement to Boycott NFL Launched: Pro-Obamacare NFL launches war on Second Amendment, InfoWars.com, December 4, 2013]
How could you tell the America of John Wayne that, one day, several U.S. states would be waging war with the 2nd Amendment and that the NFL—with Bob Costas of NBC’s Football Night in America leading the way—would be an active participant?
Some fear the NFL’s Police-State measures amount to something far more pernicious: The NFL’s Role In the Coming Martial Law, By Dave Hodges, Lew Rockwell.com, December 10, 2013]
But 2014 America is radically different from 1967 America precisely because of the racial composition of the country. With such drastic changes, the social capital that once held the country together is in short supply. And with such changes come consequences.
What was it The Economist just published about diversity? Something about the downside of diversity based on research on “ambient cultural disharmony” by Roy Y.J .Chua, of Harvard Business School, I believe:
Tension between people over matters of culture, he says, can pollute the wider environment and reduce “multicultural creativity”, meaning people’s ability to see non-obvious connections between ideas from different cultures. “Ambient cultural disharmony” persuades people to give up on making such connections because they conclude that it is not worth the trouble.
The downside of diversity, January 21, 2014]
The security measures required at Super Bowl 48 are a metaphor for the changes in America. A Police State is required to keep the peace in—to paraphrase Chua—the “polluted wider environment created by tension between people over matters of culture”?
Symmetrically, there apparently will be plenty of seats available (“18,000 Super Bowl Seats Still Available”) for the 48th version of the game as well, now that the US is an increasingly heterogeneous empire, with a Police State required to hold it together.

FOund at Western Rifle Shooters Association
One of the most crucial duties of universities is to preserve and pass on our cultural heritage, for we can only reach new heights if we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us. Unfortunately, this conflicts with liberal ideology, which dictates that anything that does not support political correctness as it is currently defined is at best irrelevant and most likely ideologically unclean. Heather Mac Donald does not exaggerate when she writes that the corruption of the English program at UCLA “is part of a momentous shift that bears on our relationship to the past — and to civilization itself”:
Until 2011, students majoring in English at UCLA had to take one course in Chaucer, two in Shakespeare, and one in Milton — the cornerstones of English literature. Following a revolt of the junior faculty, however, during which it was announced that Shakespeare was part of the “Empire,” UCLA junked these individual author requirements. It replaced them with a mandate that all English majors take a total of three courses in the following four areas: Gender, Race, Ethnicity, Disability and Sexuality Studies; Imperial, Transnational, and Postcolonial Studies; genre studies, interdisciplinary studies, and critical theory; or creative writing.
In other words, the UCLA faculty was now officially indifferent to whether an English major had ever read a word of Chaucer, Milton or Shakespeare, but the department was determined to expose students, according to the course catalog, to “alternative rubrics of gender, sexuality, race, and class.”
Such defenestrations have happened elsewhere, and long before 2011. But the UCLA coup was particularly significant because the school’s English department was one of the last champions of the historically informed study of great literature, uncorrupted by an ideological overlay. Precisely for that reason, it was the most popular English major in the country, enrolling a whopping 1,400 undergraduates.
Instead of studying the great minds of the past, students will be brainwashed with shallow left-wind psychobabble that has no enduring value.
UCLA’s undergraduates can take courses in Women of Color in the U.S.; Women and Gender in the Caribbean; Chicana Feminism; Studies in Queer Literatures and Cultures; and Feminist and Queer Theory.
Imagine anyone a hundred years ago or a hundred years in the future giving a thin dime for any of that crap.
This is the mentality liberal educrats eagerly pander to:
[A] Columbia University undergraduate … had been required by the school’s core curriculum to study Mozart. She happens to be black, but her views are widely shared, to borrow a phrase, “across gender, sexuality, race and class.”
“Why did I have to listen in music humanities to this Mozart?” she groused in a discussion of the curriculum reported by David Denby in “Great Books,” his 1997 account of re-enrolling in Columbia’s core curriculum. “My problem with the core is that it upholds the premises of white supremacy and racism. It’s a racist core. Who is this Mozart, this Haydn, these superior white men? There are no women, no people of color.” These are not the idiosyncratic thoughts of one disgruntled student; they represent the dominant ideology in the humanities today.
According to political correctness, a savage beating a hollow log with a bone is of equal value to Mozart at his most majestic — or rather of greater value, because Mozart was white and therefore presumably a racist.
Explaining the value of Western Civilization to liberal ideologues would be like explaining to termites why they should not chew their way through the last remaining volume of Shakespeare — except that termites aren’t actively hostile to Shakespeare and everything he represents. Yet we have entrusted the preservation of our civilization to these people.
Griping about Mozart and ignoring Shakespeare will not be the last step. Totalitarian ideologies like political correctness cannot permit anything to exist that challenges them by suggesting alternative viewpoints. Remember the centuries-old Buddhist statues Muslims destroyed in Afghanistan? The same mentality might well be applied to Mozart, Shakespeare, and all the other hated dead white males who bequeathed to us the greatest civilization that ever existed. They might disappear from history, the way disfavored party members were erased from photographs under Stalin.

As John Hawkins correctly notes,
It’s incredibly refreshing to have someone under attack by the Left’s political correctness police who’s willing to stand firm instead of whimpering and hiding in a corner because he wants to make it all go away.
Hawkins is referring to Phil Robertson, who instead of licking the hand of the degeneracy-promoting liberal fascists who control television, has stood firm by his conventional values. The same applies to Mark Steyn. After being publicly chastised by his editor for siding with Robertson against the pink Nazis at GLAAD who have been attempting to destroy him for his decency, Steyn doubled down:
Having leaned on A&E to suspend their biggest star, GLAAD has now moved on to Stage Two:
“We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said.
Actually, “the next step” is for you thugs to push off and stop targeting, threatening and making demands of those who happen to disagree with you. Personally, I think this would be a wonderful opportunity for the GLAAD executive board to sit down with half-a-dozen firebreathing imams and learn about their values, but, unlike the Commissars of the Bureau of Conformity Enforcement, I accord even condescending little ticks like the one above the freedom to arrange his own social calendar.
As for the editor who publicly denounced him, namely Jason Lee Steorts, Steyn writes:
It is a matter of some regret to me that my own editor at this publication does not regard this sort of thing as creepy and repellent rather than part of the vibrant tapestry of what he calls an “awakening to a greater civility”. I’m not inclined to euphemize intimidation and bullying as a lively exchange of ideas – “the use of speech to criticize other speech”, as Mr Steorts absurdly dignifies it. So do excuse me if I skip to the men’s room during his patronizing disquisition on the distinction between “state coercion” and “cultural coercion”. I’m well aware of that, thank you. In the early days of my free-speech battles in Canada, my friend Ezra Levant used a particular word to me: “de-normalize”. Our enemies didn’t particularly care whether they won in court. Whatever the verdict, they’d succeed in “de-normalizing” us — that’s to say, putting us beyond the pale of polite society and mainstream culture. “De-normalizing” is the business GLAAD and the other enforcers are in. You’ll recall Paula Deen’s accuser eventually lost in court — but the verdict came too late for Ms Deen’s book deal, and TV show, and endorsement contracts.
National Review has played a role in denormalizing in the past. Ostensibly a conservative publication, it serves the liberal establishment of which it is part by providing a phony opposition (much like the GOP), while restricting what conservatives are allowed to say.
Readers will recall that when John Derbyshire made certain undeniably accurate racial observations in a separate publication, he was promptly fired by National Review’s Thought Cop in Chief Rich Lowry for stepping outside the bounds of political correctness.
I’ve been wondering how long a sincere and gutsy guy like Steyn would last at NR, considering that he stood firm and won against the PC totalitarians who tried to gag him in Canada. Looks like we are about to find out:
I am sorry my editor at NR does not grasp the stakes. Indeed, he seems inclined to “normalize” what GLAAD is doing. But, if he truly finds my “derogatory language” offensive, I’d rather he just indefinitely suspend me than twist himself into a soggy pretzel of ambivalent inertia trying to avoid the central point — that a society where lives are ruined over an aside because some identity-group don decides it must be so is ugly and profoundly illiberal. As to his kind but belated and conditional pledge to join me on the barricades, I had enough of that level of passionate support up in Canada to know that, when the call to arms comes, there will always be some “derogatory” or “puerile” expression that it will be more important to tut over. So thanks for the offer, but I don’t think you’d be much use, would you?
Wow. As Bill Clinton would say, Steors had better put some ice on that.
Given the right conditions, a few sparks of boldness have been known set off major conflagrations. If Robertson and Steyn can stand up to the corrupt establishment, so can the rest of us.

Merely a Hunch
By David Warren
My hunch began with specific persons who, in the past, had patiently mouthed politically-correct platitudes, but were now omitting this requirement of a quiet life. Self-conscious at first, they may grow bolder. They make passing remarks that are “racist, sexist, classist, homophobic, Islamophobic,” & so forth. And this not because they are especially bigoted, but rather because they no longer wish to be told what to say. Men, & women, in their different but mutually resonant ways, suffer sudden & strange recollections. Little masculine qualities re-emerge in the men, little feminine qualities in the women, after lifetimes of suppression. This could potentially disturb the peace.

Pentagon Inflicts White Guilt Brainwashing
By Dave Blount
The most destructive weapon in the leftist arsenal is the concept of white privilege, a euphemism for white guilt. You are weakest when you are turned against yourself; consequently progressives employ this race-based version of original sin to convince members of the white majority that they have no right to hold their heads high, much less to defend their interests.
Not content to let this ideological toxin seep into our heads through the media, the ham-fisted Obama regime is hammering it home wherever it is in a position to indoctrinate captive audiences — for example, in the military:
A controversial 600-plus page manual [the Equal Opportunity Advisor Student Guide] used by the military to train its Equal Opportunity officers teaches that “healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian” men hold an unfair advantage over other races, and warns in great detail about a so-called “White Male Club.”
“Simply put, a healthy, white, heterosexual, Christian male receives many unearned advantages of social privilege, whereas a black, homosexual, atheist female in poor health receives many unearned disadvantages of social privilege,” reads a statement in the manual created by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI).
There was a time when the military’s emphasis was on winning wars. Now the priority is inculcating divisive cultural Marxist dogma.
Troops are actually exhorted to “support the leadership of people of color.” That presumably refers to race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and of course Barack Obama himself, who owes his presidency in part to his ability to exploit racial neurosis.
The propaganda spewed in the DEOMI manual is so starkly opposed to reality that it could easily pass for parody. Whites are attacked for being treated favorably by the liberal-run media and even for their implied criminal inclinations. The concept of equal opportunity (as opposed to special set-asides for non-whites) is denounced as a “tactic of denial”; whites want to pretend that their fiendish “atrocities are all in the past.”
The last time demonization indoctrination went this far over the top, the Wilson Administration was brainwashing us into hating the barbarous Hun. But hatred and dehumanization of the enemy have long been essential aspects of warfare.

Pedobear – the thin end of the wedge
On Thursday 18th September Russia’s President Vladimir Putin criticised what he called ‘excesses of political correctness’ in ‘Euro-Atlantic’ nations, referring to the ruling earlier this year in the Netherlands where a ban was overturned on a pro-paedophilia party.
His bold comments were made at the Valdai Discussion Club’s annual meeting at a Kremlin backed delegation of scholars, ministers and foreign dignitaries in north-western Russia, where among other things he vigorously defended the cosiness of traditionalism, dismissed the cultural molestation known as multiculturalism, globalisation, the ‘unipolar world’ - and the erosion of Christian values manifesting as a social focus on heart warming, pill popping, gender-bender genital mutilation.
Such comments coming from a world leader highlight a Fascist-left agenda which enforces ‘tolerance’ for the cultural eviction of the western peoples as a moral imperative.
But his words could be taken further. It could be said regarding Cultural Marxism, and the total political correctness it spawned to impose it, that Newspeak ‘sexism,’ ‘racism’ and ‘homophobia’ doesn’t even exist.
‘Neither does ‘Islamophobia’ (the irrational fear of being blown up), or ‘patriarchy,’ or ’white supremacy.’ But that’s not to say there isn’t genuine racial hatred: A bunch of black ‘youths’ beating up white families at the Wisconsin State Fair is evidence of that, Nor can it be said that homosexuals aren’t despised: Savage Muslim attacks in quaint Parisian suburbs account for that, too.
And here lies the point: Social justice twinned with political correctness means that only straight white males (in particular) can be viewed as ‘racist’ and ‘homophobic’ and somehow defective. With everyone else it’s ‘cultural’ or blamed on poverty… like poverty causes 20 black men to gang rape an eleven year old Mexican.
This means, perversely, that acknowledging the epidemic of black on white crime is ‘racism.’ It’s intolerant ‘Islamophobia’ to suggest, regarding Islamofascism, that future immigration from this demographic (miscalculating a liberal western influence on them) should be curtailed in the interests of national security and cohesion.
It means it is ‘sexism’ to assert that men and women on average have differences and that this is why disparate outcomes can be expected in their selected career choice. The useful feminist hate-word ‘misogyny’ is approved. The counter word ‘misandry’ isn’t. They know the way language shapes thought.
That’s why it’s not racist ‘hate speech’ to say that those who suffered under apartheid in South Africa fought against ‘white oppression,’ but the New York Times will damn as ‘anti-Semitic’ references to ‘Jewish oppression’ regarding Palestinians in the West Bank. Their only consistency is that white people are bad.
Armed with this hammer and sickle lexicon and social perception monopoly, the establishment Fascist-left’s army of ‘oppressed groups,’ their Stormtroopers, are encouraged to be professionally offended like proletariats in the early 20th century, a game which so far has only claimed the lives of over a hundred million souls.
Manufactured grievance being a valuable commodity, they stoke the furnace of ‘creative destruction,’ tearing down the ‘oppressive’ west which they hate – even though illegal immigrants in boats die to get there.
They are the authoritarians who call themselves ‘liberal’ while craving status and demanding unfair equality, the ideology of mediocrity. Whatever they fight for, it has nothing to do with rights – if it undermines western society they promote it.
Like paedophilia, which still inspires a healthy revulsion, but like heritage, culture and family, they are working to break down. How long before we hear of peadophobia: The irrational fear of those who want to have sex with children?
And if their Mickey Mouse words and social constructs do exist as defined, why not? It would be a word like the others, designed to frame reality to their liking.
Some of those working to liberate paedophiles today are far-left literary icon Allen Ginsberg, who during his lifetimesupported boy-love advocates, and gay rights OutRage! leader Peter Tatchell, the latter forced by paedophobes to backtrack after claiming ‘the positive nature of some child-adult sexual relationships is not confined to non-western cultures.’
The key to breaking their spell, and the Fascist-left knows this, is that once a people is free to be itself without fear and loathing, everything else, as Winston Smith observed in 1984, will follow.
As Putin remarked, people in western nations are ‘embarrassed and afraid to speak about their religious beliefs.’ And as long as this is so, everything will carry on. They will invent new forms of psychological rape – their weirdly new neologism ‘white privilege’ putting the gullible into states resembling post-traumatic stress.
Like Mao’s heartless Cultural Revolution, political correctness is a similar attack but on European consciousness. Inevitably then the first step of self-defence is a negation of it. To come to a state of mind where if one doesn’t agree with cultural genocide, they have a different opinion, they’re not ‘racist’ or bigoted. From this follows the control of culture, with that political power.
And this is liberation, not pioneering ‘hate-denial,’ a term which the Fascist-left would use. It is the recognition that only a society which embraces debate instead of criminalizing speech is the only one worth living it. It is respecting the notion that it is a human right to offend and it’s a human right to choose not to be offended.
Earning the ire of his comrades, Christopher Hitchens wrote: ‘Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt.’
Dutch Santa’s Little Black Helper
Thankfully, mercifully, and quite refreshingly, the Dutch populace has told the world to go fuck itself.
A “Pete-ition” in support of Black Pete on Facebook gathered over two million likes in the matter of a few days. And according to a poll of nearly 10,000 Netherlanders, 96% said the debate shouldn’t even be occurring. It’s almost as if the entire Dutch nation has applied blackface to its posterior and is mooning the world. – - Jim Goad

By fundamentally transforming America, what liberals mean is that they want to eradicate America, so that it might be replaced by a different society made up of different people. If you doubt it, check out the cover of their flagship weekly, Time Magazine:
The Nazis were impatient. They wanted the groups they considered undesirable to disappear immediately. Liberals learned from the failure of their fellow progressives. They are willing to wait a few generations for Americans to fade into nonexistence.
North America will still be populated, even if the liberal ruling class has its way. That’s where the push to erase our borders completely through amnesty comes in. After America is gone, its place will be taken by a gloriously diverse Third World hellhole consisting of peasants and their oligarchical collectivist rulers. The future will look like a cross between Zimbabwe, Guatemala, and the Soviet Union. Or at least, that’s a politically correct statist’s dream.
No one who wants to disarm you means you well. The same goes for anyone who does not want you to reproduce. The liberal ruling class that excretes publications like Time is the sworn enemy of every American, including those who consider themselves part of it.

SHOCKING! Iconic Ground Zero photo was nearly excluded from the 9/11 Memorial Museum for being too ‘Rah-Rah America’
Michael Shulan, the museum’s creative director, was among staffers who considered the Tom Franklin photograph of firefighters raising the stars and stripes in the rubble of Ground Zero too kitschy and “rah-rah America,” according to “Battle for Ground Zero,” by Elizabeth Greenspan.
NY Post “I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently,” Shulan said.
Michael Shulan, leftist scumbag extraordinaire
Shulan had worked on a popular post-9/11 photography exhibit called “Here is New York” in Soho when he was hired by Alice Greenwald, director of the museum, for his “unique approach.” Eventually, chief curator Jan Ramirez proposed a compromise, Greenspan writes. The Franklin shot was minimized in favor of three different photos via three different angles of the flag-raising scene.
“Several images undercut the myth of ‘one iconic moment,’ Ramirez said, and suggest instead an event from multiple points of view, like the attacks more broadly,” the book says. “Shulan didn’t like three photographs more than he liked one, but he went along with it.”
I imagine this one didn’t make it either?
Shulan told The Post he didn’t know that the way Greenspan described the discussion about the photographs “is the way that I would have.” “My concern, as it always was, is that we not reduce [9/11] down to something that was too simple, and in its simplicity would actually distort the complexity of the event, the meaning of the event,” he said.
Shulan was living in Soho on Sept. 11, 2011. He helped organize the “Here is New York” exhibit shortly after the attack, and it grew to include thousands of photographs taken by professionals and ordinary New Yorkers. The collection was later donated to the New-York Historical Society.
The photograph wasn’t the only item officials and family members argued over. Early on, it was decided that no human remains or photos of body parts be included in the museum. Dust from the collapse of the Towers will be on display, “but only dust which has been tested and determined not to contain remains,” Greenspan writes.
Or this one?
However, it was nearly impossible to determine if one artifact — called “the composite” — followed that rule. Three feet tall and 15 tons, the composite contains about four or five building stories compressed by pressure and heat into one solid block, with bits of paper and the edges of filing cabinets poking out of the surface.
The museum tested the outside of the composite and found it negative for DNA. But they couldn’t test inside it without the risk of destroying it. Eventually, despite the uncertainty and over the objections of some 9/11 family members, the piece was included.

“Hate is today’s equivalent of Victorian sex.”
The denizens of the 21st century, educated liberals in especial, think they are above hate. They are too smart for that sort of s**t.
Today we have codes against “hate speech”, social taboos against “hateful behavior”. But a moment’s study will readily show that much of this is just sugar coating, that inside the “anti-hate” paintjob lurk actual hate campaigns themselves. Hate is today’s equivalent of Victorian sex. Everyone affects to know nothing of it, yet the body politic would grid to a halt, not to mention go broke, without it. | Belmont Club » Addicted to Hate

“Fred, I’m gonna be very honest with you here: People like you are a problem. . . . “You can get mad at me because I’m pointing things out, but you’re just getting mad at fact, and you’re making extrapolations or interpretations that I didn’t make nor intend. I’m not trying to distract anybody. I’m the mayor of Realville — and what I mean by that is, I live in the world of reality. “The truth is all I care about.” – Rush Limbaugh, July 16, 2013
Having been mentioned two days in a row on the most popular radio program in the world is kind of cool. All I did was write a 700-word summary of reporting and research, most of which had previously appeared at The Last Refuge a.k.a. The Conservative Treehouse.
“People like you are a problem,” Rush told his caller Fred yesterday and, as usual, Rush was absolutely right. Outsource your thinking to the media, jump to a conclusion based on what other people are telling you, and then refuse to consider the possibility that there may be facts that contradict the pre-fabricated conclusion you have been spoon-fed by a pack of hired liars. Above all, never pay attention to the demonstrable pattern of deception, the way in which all the artful falsehoods and deliberate distortions point you toward the same political prejudice: Vote Democrat!
Are these media people ideological liberals, or are they just Democrats? How do we distinguish liberal bias from crude partisanship?
You have to wonder about that, when you see everyone on CNN nodding in agreement while Rachel Jeantel recalls how she warned Trayvon Martin that the “creepy-ass cracker” George Zimmerman might be a gay pedophile predator.
Holy stereotypes, Batman! On what planet do liberals so much as acknowledge the possibility of the existence of gay pedophilia? But let this lecture be delivered by a 19-year-old black high-school dropout — “Run, Trayvon! Dat creepy-ass cracker gonna rape you!” — and all the “liberals” react as if this were the apex of wisdom.
Try to imagine if something like this had been said on CNN by a Republican politician or some redneck Baptist preacher who talked like Larry the Cable Guy. Outrage! Homophobia!
But when Rachel Jeantel says it, Piers Morgan doesn’t bat an eye, his liberal audience nods in agreement, and anyone who points out that Rachel Jeantel is an idiot . . . RAAAAACIST!
There’s no way to win. If you point out the double-standards and hypocrisy, this only proves you’re a “right-wing extremist,” see?
Liberals are always like Fred, who objected to Rush Limbaugh’s reference to the facts of Trayvon Martin’s juvenile criminality. They’re prejudiced — they’ve bought into the pre-fabricated conclusion — and your attempts to enlighten their benighted minds are rejected as signifying that you are a bad person, because only bad people dispute the liberal worldview that leads to false conclusions.
Bad motives (mala fides) are always ascribed to conservatives. You must be a racist, a sexist, a homophobe or some other kind of evil person, says the liberal, or otherwise you’d be liberal, too. And that kind of “argument” (the scare-quotes necessary because these are not actually arguments in the sense of formal logic) is entirely acceptable to people who have never set foot in Realville. (No low-information voters here.)
The problem, of course, is that liberals dishonestly attempt to persuade us that they possess a monopoly on intellectual prestige. It’s like the global-warming consensus: If you carefully purge from the ranks of “respectable” scientists everyone who disagrees with the consensus — demonizing dissent — then it becomes possible to say with a straight face that All Respectable Scientists Agree.
“The science is settled!”
And it’s a goddamned tautology.
Whatever happened to skepticism, huh? Whatever happened to the admiration of intellectual curiosity and the mischievous idea that perhaps the status quo Conventional Wisdom is wrong?
Why, for example, are educated people willing to accept without question the idea that what happened to Trayvon Martin can only be explained as a consequence of racism? Is it not possible that Trayvon’s own ignorance contributed to his death? Even if we stipulate that George Zimmerman was wrong to pursue Trayvon — “We don’t need you to do that,” as the 911 dispatcher said — was this teenager completely without fault in that fatal encounter?
Three days after a jury declared Zimmerman not guilty of murder, CNN continued its wall-to-wall coverage of the case Tuesday, misinforming its audience about basic facts. Over and over, CNN’s hosts and commentators brought up Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, despite the fact that this law enacted in 2005 had nothing to do with the Zimmerman trial. But issues that may have a lot to do with the trial, the networks are willing to ignore. The one thing that CNN and the rest of the media establishment have refused to discuss is the path that brought a teenager to his fatal encounter with the neighborhood watch captain of that townhouse community in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was not from Sanford, Florida. This is perhaps the most important fact of the entire story, in part because it may explain why the teenager was so disturbed at being followed by George Zimmerman. Trayvon was from Miami Gardens, the largest majority-black city in Florida, where the population is 76 percent black and 22 percent Hispanic and “creepy-ass crackers” are quite rare. Crime is commonplace in Miami Gardens — the crime rate is about 70 percent higher than the national average — and Trayvon Martin was one of the criminals. . . .

A city in Texas has been forced to change its nudity laws after topless waitresses wearing just body paint served customers.
Staff at the Red Neck Heaven Bar in Lewisville have been told they are no longer allowed to wear just body paint and strategically placed pasties covering their modesty.
Until recently the girls at the restaurant would hold ABC days – anything but clothes.
The all female staff would wear bikini bottoms and cover their breasts with body paint that had been professionally applied by an artist. Cloth pasties would cover their nipples.
Under ordinance laws in Lewisville, Texas, the risqué attire was perfectly legal.
Despite the servers being near naked, police said they were not in breach of any law.
But the city’s police chief Russell Kerbow said the laws regarding nudity should be re-examined.
But following complaints about the topless servers, city chiefs have now ruled body paint and pasties are unacceptable.
It follows a complaint by local resident Catherine Holliday.
She was with a friend who wanted to stop and take a photo of the restaurant’s sign.
‘And that’s when we realized there were servers in the parking lot that weren’t dressed!’ she told CBS News.
‘They weren’t for all intensive purposes. They had a tiny bikini bottom that didn’t cover their bottom, their backs were bare and their fronts were painted but bare.’
City chiefs debated the issue on Monday night and heard from professional body painter Kristal White.
She said:’I do consider it a form of art – I consider it a very beautiful form of art.
‘If you’ve seen X-Men, you’ve seen Mystique. That was a movie and that was body painting, and it was beautiful.’
Lewisville town chiefs decided body paint, dyes and tattoos cannot be considered decent covering for restaurant servers and voted to change their ordinance.
The Red Neck Heaven restaurant will have to apply for a Sexually Oriented Business permit if the want to continue to hold their anything but clothes day.
A spokesman for the restaurant was unavailable for comment.

Follow up story:
Lewisville is not too far from Dallas, and I used to go there a lot. So it is with a heavy heart that I report that a case of Offendeditis has been confirmed there
A patron called Lewisville police after what they claim happened during a stop at the restaurant and bar called Redneck Heaven. When officers went to the establishment to investigate they found female waitresses serving customers with only body paint and pasties covering their breasts.
There were no charges filed or arrests made, because the wait staff had broken no law.
Lewisville Police Chief Russell Kerbow subsequently sent a memo to the City Manager saying that while the restaurant was not in violation of the current ordinance, members of the department feel the definition of nudity or state of nudity needs to be changed.
Kunke said the issue would be presented to the city council. “The discussion for council tonight is whether they want to amend the ordinance to say specifically that body paint, body dye and tattoos do not count as opaque coverage.”
As Stephen Green commented
Somebody went to a place called Redneck Heaven, saw some body paint, and went to the cops about it. Now the city council needs to get involved, because… well, I guess because of pretty 23-year-old waitresses who aren’t wearing very much.
If you don’t like what the servers are (or aren’t) wearing, then just leave the damn restaurant. This business of people thinking their personal preferences need to be given the weight of law accounts for every major problem facing this country today. Every single one.
So now we’ll have a bunch of ignorant politicians debating the weighty matter of exactly what geometry of the female breast away from the nipple is allowed to be exposed and what constitutes proper coverage of said side- and/or under-boob.
I’ll tell you who the boobs are: the people who went to the cops instead of walking back to their car.
I could not have said it any better!

But in between the usual criminal cases whose defendants seem like failed aspirants for the Big Brother house or Survivor, reality TV stars who found fame with a butcher knife, are the politically edifying cases. The ones that aren’t just meant to humiliate and degrade the participants and the viewers, but to indoctrinate them as well.
It is into this category that the Zimmerman trial falls. It’s an involuntary case based on insufficient evidence whose course was compelled by government intervention. And like the tribunals of the French Revolution or the Moscow Trials; it’s there to teach us something. And the thing it’s there to teach us is racism hysteria.
Racism is the new sex for a creed of politically correct puritans who are obsessed with a new kind of prurience. As the last sexual taboos fall by the wayside, the new taboos are political and the new witch hunts are all about exposing hidden reservoirs of bigotry among celebrity chefs and lurking White Hispanic menaces.
The intimate moral faults that keep a population in a state of conformity and terror are no longer sexual, but political. The new prudery is political and the new hypocrisy is racial, knotted over with double standards and exceptions for the watchers and the elites who are exempt from the occasional witch trial, no matter how many black cats and cauldrons they own.
Racial tolerance has long since become racial denunciation. Tolerance has become paranoia. The fear of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. Of giving the wrong impression. Of failing to be properly guilty for some vague complicity of privilege and oppression. Those fears and guilts must be constantly reinvigorated with fresh doses of trials and denunciations. Public spectacles to serve as reminders that the greatest evil of all lurks everywhere and that we must stand vigilant against it.
The graduate of a modern liberal arts university receives training in spotting and identifying the most obscure forms of bigotry. He isn’t taught to spot burning crosses, but to denounce implicit narrative privilege. The microscope that he wields to spot the most obscure forms of bigotry imaginable doesn’t really detect bigotry, it manufactures it. It crafts his higher moral ground by exposing the wrongdoing of everyone and everything else.
His or her contemporaries have few skills, except the familiar one from every totalitarian state of denouncing enemies of the state for some trivial act. Having been turned into inquistioners by an educational system that is terrible at producing engineers or scientists, but spectacular at producing politically correct policemen of public spaces, they might as well inquisition.
Bigotry is the bugbear of the moment, but next year it might be salt or short hair. Racism just happens to be easier to rally against. It also comes with the most moral authority points.
The Soviet Union reduced everything to class and built its moral authority to rule around economic redistribution and the classless society. The United States from LBJ onward reduced everything to race and built its moral authority to rule around social harmony. The enemy that disrupts that social harmony is eroding the latest accomplishments in the national social progress program.
The pursuit of bigotry has as little to do with fighting actual racism as witch hunts had to do with hunting actual witches. Real Neo-Nazis and Klansmen can’t get arrested in this town. Overt bigotry is boring and actual racists have taken to showing up at courthouses in Nazi uniforms to get attention. . There’s no point in hunting a witch who boasts about her witchcraft. There’s no sport to it.
The whole point of baiting a bear is to get the bear to react. The Roman arenas wouldn’t have lasted very long without gladiators willing to fight. And the entire tawdry spectacle of the trial and the morality mob requires cooperating defendants who care what the faceless mass audience thinks of them and try to prove their innocence.
Taboos by their very nature involve shame. Exposing some secret bigotry, denouncing a man as a bigot on the flimsiest of grounds, involves sport. The bear struggles and fights back. He tries to understand what’s happening. He cries and apologizes. There’s shame and guilt on display. But take that away and the inquisitioners have nothing to work with.
There is no drama in denouncing a man who has no shame and no secret fears of being dragged out of the crowd to be charged with disrupting its social harmony. Denouncing Andrew Dice Clay and Alec Baldwin, two of the actors in Woody Allen’s next movie, is pointless. Neither of the men care. Both have public personas built on being politically incorrect. But denouncing Paula Deen proved to be a rich feast of degradation and humiliation for the politically correct crowd. And power.
The entire sport isn’t about racism, it’s about power. The witch hunt isn’t about fighting evil, it’s about turning to a face in the crowd and then dragging them out as a human sacrifice to the collective power of the crowd and the moral authority of the inquisitioners. The victim is denounced for secretly lacking the same commitment to social values as everyone else in the crowd. And everyone in the crowd recommits to those values with a mixture of fear and triumph. Triumph over the vulnerability of another human being and fear that their own hypocrisies, their own little sins, will be exposed.
Mass hysteria of this kind is built on elevating one value above all others. It gives its crusaders the sanction to behave in the ugliest possible ways for the greater good. It silences all dissent through a moral power that isn’t truly moral, but is nothing more than calculated hysteria enforced by terror.
Racism is still a problem in America, but the Anti-Racists don’t care about it. Hysterias are never about solving real problems, but about using complicity and conformity to enforce a moral order. The new moral order uses charges of bigotry to destroy its enemies and to spread fear, but it never really bothers to do anything about real racism. It has a thousand enforcement arms to investigate and denounce bigotry, but it rarely bothers with real discrimination. Instead it harasses businesses that conduct background checks or refuse to hire employees with criminal records. The goal, as always, is not to deal with bigotry, but to spread fear and uncertainty, to create compliance through paranoia.
The Zimmerman case was supposed to be one more reminder that racism is the gravest threat to America since the Y2K virus. And however the case ends, the political correct police will have won by once again asserting the supremacy of their value, combating racism, over all other values, including such obscure trinkets like telling the truth. The very existence of the trial and the months of dishonest news coverage has once again enforced a mandatory hysteria about the racism menace.
Next week it will probably be something else. Perhaps the Voting Rights Act again, a 60s measure that is more dated than the The Ronettes. Or another local crime story blown up out of proportion and turned into yet another teachable moment. It doesn’t much matter. The purpose of the entire exercise was never justice, it was about intimidation and brainwashing.
Racism in America, at and from all the country’s races, will continue in diminishing amounts for the foreseeable future following a predictable trajectory that had nothing to do with all the sensitivity seminars and other profiteering elements of the racism industry. Meanwhile the racism industry, its shadow twin, will go on expanding and getting bigger. There will be more money, more seminars, more laws and more show trials. The new frontier of bigotry is gay rights and there will be plenty of power and fear to be gained from the next wave of lawsuits, firings, boycotts and morality mobs.
America is at once becoming more racially sane and more racially insane. It is becoming less racist and more race obsessed. Its best and brightest often appear to have few abilities other than spotting and denouncing bigotry. The country is paradoxically becoming post-racial and racially obsessed.
The United States no longer leads the world in space or in many areas of science and technology. Its literature has become forgettable and the great skyscrapers are being built in Asia and the Middle East. But it leads the world in racial hysteria, an obsession as irrational as the satanic sex abuse kindergartens and the witch trials. We can’t go back to the moon, but our social engineers stalk the corridors of power with microscopes that claim to peer into the human heart.

The new racism in America stinks. The whole revolting
“little George Allen maybe said the “N” word 30-odd years in the past” pile of crap pushed out by his political rival over the last few days Paula Deen social media raping has filled me with a new found revulsion for our politics.
My crime is this: by writing out the following word, “nigger,” I have just committed a social crime more heinous than smoking a cigarette within three miles of a day-care center. But what is done, sigh, is done.
I’ve done many thing in my life that have made me potentially unelectable to any office in the United States.
I’ve had points of view that were out when conservatism was in, and points of view that were out when liberalism was in. I’ve worked for magazines that printed pictures of naked women and letters that began “I never thought I’d be writing this to a magazine, but….”
There are photographs of me smoking cigarettes in a land where the only two things the educational system teaches children is that cigarettes are bad and the New York Times is good.
My religious affiliations are dubious and transitory. I tend to change churches as others change sox.
While I am a member of the largest minority, it is the only one that is unrecognized by the Diversity Stamp of Approval Bureau. After a lifetime of voting the Democratic ticket, I became so nauseated by Teresa Heinz Kerry and her consort in 2004 that I actually voted for George Bush. To compound this sin I then moved to Seattle, Washington where Bush Derangement Syndrome has claimed the brain death of approximately 97.6% of the population.
Yes, I am one American citizen whose chances of being elected to anything, before this essay, hovered at .001 %. But with the single word in the essay above I have, for all eternity, sealed my political doom. That word has now become part of my “Permanent Conduct Record,” and has, as far as the ever-alert pecksniffs of our shared political purity are concerned, made me an outcast. Alas, I am forever doomed to wander the barren heath where dwell the “hard-core unelectable.” I suspect I shall soon be able with George Allen to: “…sit upon the ground And tell sad stories of the death of kings: How some have been depos’d, some slain in war, Some haunted by the ghosts they have depos’d, Some poison’d by their wives, some sleeping kill’d; All murder’d.”
Murdered by the “N-Word.”
It is not, mind you, that “The N-Word” is forbidden or never heard in this fair land at this time. On the contrary, “nigger” is spoken, sung, shouted and roared from the rooftops of our culture to an extent I have never witnessed in all my decades.
The word is blasted across the blank forebrain of our culture every minute of every hour of every day. Not only can it be bought in huge quantities at every on and offline record/DVD store in the country, it is also blasted into our city streets by large vehicles mounting sound systems that can drop a charging rhino at 100 yards and cause small dogs to implode in penthouses high above our boulevards. At vast nocturnal gatherings of our most vital and hyper-sexual young people, the word is drummed out in endless celebratory chants as all assembled shake, shake, shake their money makers to the non-stop N-chants of our perpetually preening princes of pop. If rappers were smart enough to be pilots, they’d sky-write it.
For, lo, this Word of N which once emblemized both race-hate and a degraded and disgraced secondary state of humanity has, through the alchemy of the asses and the asinine among us, been mystically transmogrified into something approaching a holy incantation. From a mongrel word it has be made magical. An abracadabra of assholiness. But the use of this magic word has, as the high priests of pap always assure us, been made unavailable to the many to enhance the power of the few.
The Word of N is now the sole possession of the REMD (Racial Establishment of Monetized Defeatism). It is a closely held stock whose possession assures that, the more we strive to put racism behind us in this country, the more it will be kept alive in order to maintain the parasite of racism’s ability to feed upon the host culture and continue to enrich its stockholders.
The Word is the carrier of a strange disease. It is a disease that those who would benefit most from its eradication seek desperately to maintain. After all, if the scourge of racism were ever allowed to fade from our land, where would all the people with jobs and investments in the continuance of racism go? How would they live? How would their mortgages be paid and how would their car, boat and second-home payments be met?
For if racism is allowed to die a natural death, isn’t the Race-Hustling industry also on-line for the grave as well? This can’t be allowed to happen. Too many people are getting too rich.
The crowning irony is that those benefiting are not all black. Not by a long shot. That is why rather than sending the N-Word into a well-deserved oblivion with the ghosts of the KKK and the lynch mob, it has been made, instead, into a Holy Word; a cross between a mantra and a prayer with just a whiff of violence attached so you don’t get too cocky with it.
I am “one of those” who are denied access to this new Holy Word simply by an accident of my birth and racial heritage. It matters not one whit what the First Amendment may say about all English words being free to all, there is one word there that is not free to me, and I may not say it or write it ever without dire consequences to my social and political and employment chances in America today.
Evoking the F-word may or may not be a firing offense in America today, but for a person of my race the mention of the Word of N most certainly is. Context has exactly nothing to do with it. Indeed, as some will recall, the use of a word that even sounds like it, such as “niggardly,” is a potential firing offense. Even the first syllable seems to have become forbidden to those suffering my genetic misfortune over which I have no control.
Yes, I was to my everlasting shame and regret born a White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant — AKA “WASP.” This awful affliction looks like this:
This is fixed in my nature. I cannot change it and, no matter how much I may have done, no matter how much I do to carry forward the banner of a raceless, classless society in which all me are judged “not on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character;” to raise high the escutcheon of a perfect world, a perfected America, I know that because of the accident of my birth it will never, ever be enough.
I once thought, when I was drowned deep in the somnambulant 60s dreams of racial equality, that we could — as people of good will working together — achieve the dream of Dr. King. Now I know it is nothing but a chimera. The truth is that good seldom overcomes greed and there is simply too much money to be made and to many jobs to be handed out by the Racial Grievance Industry of America.
The once admirable Racial Equality movement in America has regrettably transformed itself within a mere 50 years into a Racial Inequity in Perpetuity Movement, and is probably more entrenched than a government bureaucracy — especially since many government bureaus and employees have a role in it. As a result, there is no sense in yearning any longer for a raceless or classless America.
The control of words and images by the Race Hustlers of America ensures that that day will never come about no matter how much the people yearn for it. As long as the cheap mouthpieces of a faux ghetto identity strut and fret their weary wares upon the stage of our corrupted culture, as long as there is one grill left to be set on one pair of greedy teeth, as long as the Holy Grail of a Big Reparations Check is dangled in front of all those that hold within their genes a single sequence of African DNA, the Race Hustling Religion of America will never fold up its tents and steal away. It is just too much of a Gold Cash Calf to walk away from.
And, like all religions sunk in the pagan fantasies of violence and degradation, the Race Hustling Religion will have to have, from time to time, a white human sacrifice to underscore its power. Right now, that sacrifice is
George Allen, Paula Deen whose crime –punished immediately and without trial, is some ancient, vague, unproven and unprovable, use of “The N-Word.” a word she was never it turns out allowed to utter or to even think. She’s not the first. She won’t be the last. I’m probably on the list now. But I know all you who are reading this are safe. After all, you’ve never, ever said or even thought that terrible soul-destroying Word of N. Have you?
