The Kotsko Syndrome

08/13/2020

These are trying times. As society looks ready to tear itself apart, there are some that are willing to help facilitate the process. Adam Kotsko is one of them.

Kotsko is a professor at North Central College in Illinois. He believes that the Constitution is racist and, therefore, we should abolish state autonomy, the Senate, and the Electoral College. Kotsko left in place the House of Representatives because, I guess, someone has to run the country (even if it too is racist). Problem is that if you abolish state autonomy, there will be no states to elect members to the House.

He never states exactly why the Constitution is racist, only that it is. He never explains why the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution which abolished slavery, provided for equal protection under the law and gave citizens the right to vote regardless of race or color are also racist. It’s academic anyway, because how could he have argued the point?

The question is this: What is the motivation of a person like Adam Kotsko, someone who is a professor of philosophy at a small college in the Midwest? Could it be that Kotsko is mirroring his own racism on to someone else? After all, if he were a true humanitarian, he should consider critiquing the truly racist countries in the world, like China and Saudi Arabia, not America which has, by far, greater diversity than any other country in the world.

And here’s the answer to the question of motivation posed above: Kotsko feels that white people are the real problem, based on his comments that “white American cultural common sense” is allowing the police to kill black people. That, in itself, is a racist comment.  Never mind that most black people are actually killed by other black people rather than the police.

The real agenda, though, lies in Kotsko’s desire that all white people should commit suicide. What this amounts to is doublespeak out of the mouth of a radical, in reality a justification to exterminate the white race (because obviously the entire white race is not going to commit suicide). This, then, is not much different than the run-up to Hitler exterminating the Jews. It’s the very same playbook, as outlined in Rules For Radicals.

 

Epilogue

The problem with people playing the race card in America today is that racists like Kotsko can posture that they are the anti-racists. It’s the essence of the Cancel Culture and an attempt to destroy American cultural values. Welcome to the new normal, to the Kotsko Syndrome.

 

“The first step is to replace the history (e.g. destruction of statues), then you destroy the institutions (e.g. abolish the police), and then you cancel the culture through things like groupthink. In the end, you create a hive-mind culture where the elites can pull the strings from behind the scenes.”  – TheEthicalWarrior, The Dystopian Nightmare Named America

 

BET founder Robert Johnson recently trashed the anarchists who have been destroying statues all across the country.  In a TV interview, Johnson said that, “[They] have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying…’Look at these white people. They’re doing something so important to us. They’re taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South.’”  That’s especially true when one of the statues was of Abraham Lincoln himself.

However, what Johnson and many others are missing is that the destruction of statues by these anarchists has little to nothing to do with slavery or racist individuals. These individuals are intent on destruction, plain and simple – destruction of our history, our culture and our very way of life.

This is not about racism, but rather it’s about revolution. These are Marxists revolutionaries who are intent on overthrowing our government and shredding our Constitution. Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of BLM, has publicly admitted that her group is “trained Marxists” and it’s readily apparent what Antifa is. If you want to know who is behind them, you just need to follow the money trail. You might be surprised where it leads. As for the statues, they now cease to exist. As such, they have been relegated into the dustbin of history.

 

“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” – George Orwell

 

 

While everyone is glued to the TV watching the riots and the coronavirus lockdowns, the real culprit is getting away with outright larceny.  I’m talking about the Federal Reserve, of course. Yet, very little is being said about the fact that the Federal Reserve is destroying our economy much as they did back in 1929 by engineering the Great Depression.

Why don’t we hear about these things? Well, it’s called censorship. As Brian of HighImpactVlogs said about the increasing censorship on the internet, “Truth is the new hate speech and truth will always be treason in the empire of lies.” Mac Slavo of SHTFplan.com put it this way, “The corporate entity, known as mainstream media, is LITERALLY, the propaganda arm for the military-industrial complex, so they WILL NOT expose lies.”

Lise Kingo, executive director of the UN Global Compact, said that the coronavirus pandemic was “just a fire drill” for what will follow. That is, world governments have committed economic suicide praying at the altar of social distancing, setting the stage for complete government collapse. In the U.S for example, more than 45 million people have filed initial unemployment claims over the last three months.

Kingo should know because the UN is involved in much of the pre-planned chaos that has blanketed the globe. Riots and lockdowns, as bad as they are, is just so much smoke and mirrors. As usual, you need to follow the money and you know who has all the money. The chaos is not primarily about health issues, racism or social activism. By the time people figure this out, it may be too late.

 

Epilogue

The Federal Reserve is planning on dumping/destroying the U.S. dollar in favor of a digital currency. Then, through biometric identification, the Fed will be able to trace every single purchase. Welcome to slavery in the 21st century.

A person of color, who is a professor at U.C. Berkeley, wrote an open letter to their colleagues. The letter was published by ZeroHedge, which characterized the letter as rejecting the “current narratives of racial injustice underpinning the BLM movement and ongoing protests over the death of George Floyd.”

Here are some excerpts from the letter:

  • “The claim that the difficulties that the black community faces are entirely causally explained by exogenous factors in the form of white systemic racism, white supremacy, and other forms of white discrimination remains a problematic hypothesis that should be vigorously challenged by historians.”
  • “The vast majority of violence visited on the black community is committed by black people. There are virtually no marches for these invisible victims, no public silences, no heartfelt letters from the UC regents, deans, and departmental heads. The message is clear: Black lives only matter when whites take them…No discussion is permitted for nonblack victims of black violence, who proportionally outnumber black victims of nonblack violence.”
  • “…consider what happens if you choose to donate to Black Lives Matter, an organization UCB History has explicitly promoted in its recent mailers. All donations to the official BLM website are immediately redirected to ActBlue Charities, an organization primarily concerned with bankrolling election campaigns for Democrat candidates. Donating to BLM today is to indirectly donate to Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign.This is grotesque given the fact that the American cities with the worst rates of black-on-black violence and police-on-black violence are overwhelmingly Democrat-run. Minneapolis itself has been entirely in the hands of Democrats for over five decades; the ‘systemic racism’ there was built by successive Democrat administrations.”
  • “The total alliance of major corporations involved in human exploitation with BLM should be a warning flag to us, and yet this damning evidence goes unnoticed, purposefully ignored, or perversely celebrated. We are the useful idiots of the wealthiest classes, carrying water for Jeff Bezos and other actual, real, modern-day slavers. Starbucks, an organisation using literal black slaves in its coffee plantation suppliers, is in favor of BLM. Sony, an organisation using cobalt mined by yet more literal black slaves, many of whom are children, is in favor of BLM.”

“Black Lives Matter donations go directly to a superpac called ‘ACT BLUE’ that has given hundreds of millions to Democrats running for President. How is this legal? is LITERALLY a shell company.”  – Candace Owens, black activist

The underlying cause of the recent riots can be traced primarily to three groups: young people, the media and local inner-city governments.  What connects these three groups together is socialism.

If you want to know what socialism looks like, just watch the riots.The young people riot, the media endorse the riots, and the violence that comes with them, and the city governments just stand back and watch their cities burn.

For some, riots is one of the preferred ways to bring about social change.  One such person is Hawk Newsome. In a television interview, Newsome, president of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, made some rather interesting remarks about the riots.  You’ll probably love or hate what he had to say:

  • Newsome compared modern-day protests to The Boston Tea Party, saying: “The white supremacists who built this country never earned anything peacefully. They did it through bullets and blood.  And that’s the American way.” Comment: In other words, the riots are revolutionary acts. Problem is, I don’t think that a majority of people in this country are ready for revolution, especially when they feel that it’s okay to use the National Guard to quell riots. If you really mean what you say, you’d go burn down the headquarters of Google or Apple (the greedy, white supremacist capitalists) instead of lighting up your own black communities.
  • Newsome brought up the federal Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850, which allowed for the capture and return of enslaved people. Comment: I guess he simply forgot to mention the Emancipation Proclamation of 1862.  Lest we all forget, the slavery issue resulted in the Civil War where some 620,000 to 850,000 soldiers died to free the slaves. For me, that’s the American way.

Although protests about racism are presumably about social justice, there’s a lot more to it than that. For example, racism is being used by politicians as a shield to avoid talking about the serious problems in the Black community – problems like crime, drug addiction and high unemployment. The inner cities all over America are festering and rotting. The local city governments are doing next to nothing to solve the problems. Check out Detroit or Baltimore to see what it really looks like. Or Chicago – Chicago is the murder capital of the world. On the weekend of the George Floyd shooting, 50 people were shot in Chicago, most of which were black-on-black crimes. However, nobody is protesting for those victims and the media ignores the story.

ZeroHedge reported on the Chicago shootings – link (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/medias-racial-injustice-blind-spot-over-30-shot-another-deadly-chicago-weekend)

The inner cities are virtually all run by socialist-style city governments. Riots are simply a means to a political end, a tool to divide and conquer. If you want to know what comes next, pay attention to the growing movement to abolish the police. It’s right out of the Marxist playbook of Rules For Radicals, courtesy of Saul Alinsky.

 

“If you and your community have been brought up with a respect for law enforcement, if you have come to see police as friends or even friends of the family, that doesn’t serve our Marxist, revolutionary purpose…Our goal right now is to abolish police. It’s to completely reimagine our social order.” – Marc Lamont Hill, CNN political contributor

 

 

The Ego People

09/23/2019

Politicians are narcissists with crazy egos, and they don’t know how to tell the truth. As Joe Biden says, the truth is different from the facts (say what!). Today’s headlines tell the story:

Headline #1: Dead of Ego-Induced Psychosis: NY Post Issues Obituary For De Blasio’s Failed Presidential Campaign

Headline #2: NYC Police Union Releases Scathing Statement on De Blasio’s Failed Presidential Run

Comment: Who cares? He was never a serious contender anyway.

Headline: Ocasio-Cortez: House Democrats Refusal To Impeach Is A Bigger Scandal Than Trump’s Lawbreaking Behavior

Comment: She did everything but call the House Democrats racists.  However, she has already called Pelosi a racist so maybe that covers it.

Headline: Another New York Times Editor Made Racist, Anti-Semetic Comments

Comment: What do you expect from a den full of racists who call other people racist?

Headline: Biden Can’t Keep Ukraine Story Straight. Son Hunter Contradicts 2020 Candidate on Corruption Questions Surrounding Ukraine Government and Oil Company

Comment: Joe Biden says that he never discussed Hunter Biden’s Ukraine deal; Hunter says he did. Can you spell F-A-M-I-L-Y  F-E-U-D?

Comment: There’s even more to this story than what is being reported, as the origins of the fake Russia-collusion narrative leads to the Ukraine. Stay tuned.

 

Humor of the day:

Headline: Only Nine Students Show Up For White Privilege Workshop At School of 30,000

Comment: Apparently, this is a real serious issue, then.

Politicians (and the MSM) rarely inform the public of much of anything. Rather, their public pronouncements (and news programming) are intended to misinform. You can usually assume that there is an agenda behind everything that they say and do, an agenda which if you knew you would likely vote them out of office. Today’s headlines tell the story:

 

Headline: Black Leaders Say Endorsing Elizabeth Warren Has Prompted Racist Attacks From Sanders’ Supporters

Comment: Ho-hum. Another day, another racist.

Headline: Far-Left MSNBC Conspiracy Theorist Joy Reid Says White Christian Men Want Apartheid in America

Comment: It takes one to know one, a racist that is. And that’s why MSNBC’s ratings are in the tank.

Headline: Rosario Dawson: ICE Raids Part of Larger White Nationalism Narrative

Comment: And what do we call the ICE raids under Obama – Black Domestic Terrorism?

Headline #1: Yang: Climate Change May Require Elimination of Car Ownership

Headline #2: Andrew Yang’s Climate Change Plan Includes Taxing Cow Farts

Comment: Taxing cow farts? And that’s why Yang will never be President.

Headline: Julian Castro Campaign Manager: Opposition to Illegal Immigration is Racism

Comment, Last I checked, illegal immigration was…well, illegal. So, I guess that means that opposing crime is now racist. And that’s why Castro will never be President.

Headline: CNN’s Savidge Goes To Democratic Stronghold In Minnesota Finds Everyone Is Voting For Trump

Comment: The reason, according to Savidge, is that “Democrats and their socialist promises scare the hell out of Middle America.”

 

Opinion piece:

In an interview on CNBC, hedge fund legend Leon Cooperman gave the financial markets’ perspective on the 2020 election. Cooperman criticized Warren’s policies saying: “Her policies are counter-productive…you don’t make the poor people rich by making the rich people poor.”

Comment: And you don’t make the country rich by guaranteeing a livelihood to every single person. Contrary to what some politicians believe, we don’t all have a right to free medical care, free education and either a job or a guaranteed income (if we don’t want to work). Someone has to pay for the largess and the government doesn’t have the authority to institute these policies unless the citizens say so. In the real world, the country will become rich only when everyone contributes and is not a drag on the financial health of the nation.

 

Humor of the day:

Headline: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Falsely Claims D.C. Was the First the First U.S. Territory To Abolish Slavery

Comment: AOC’s Justice Democrats are trying to supplant Black congresspersons with their own people in the 2020 elections. Yet, here she is supposedly championing a Black cause…and can’t even get her facts straight at that.

 

Candace Owens, a young Black activist, testified at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee on Hate Crimes and White Nationalism.  What she said will, no doubt, jolt some people’s sensibilities. Then again, though, most people are not sensible. 

The problem is that politicians pander to the Black vote, but they do not want to really deal with the serious issues that are confronting Black people in America.  The problem is that, as a nation, we have done little to alleviate the plight of the Black communities, problems like crime, drugs, violence and deteriorating neighborhoods.  That’s why, today, cities like Chicago, Detroit and Baltimore, just to name a few, have become cesspools and there is very little being done to correct the problem.

Yes, racism is something that Blacks have to deal with in their daily lives. Yet, they are far more concerned with their ability to provide for their families. So, things like jobs, safe neighborhoods and education rank high on the list of what they want.

Blacks are tired of being taken for granted (politically). So, for many, Candace Owens has become the face of Black discontentment. The opinions she expresses are her own but are shared by many people in the Black community.  Here’s how she testified at the hearing:

“You know that white supremacy and white nationalism rank no where near the top of the issues that is facing Black America… It is an attempt to make the election all about race…The things that are actually harming Black America – #1 father absence #2 the education system and the illiteracy rate… White supremacy and white nationalism, if I had to make a list again of 100 things, would not be on it. This hearing, in my opinion, is a farce.  And it’s ironic that you’re sitting here and having three Caucasian people testify and tell you what their expertise is. You want to know what my expertise are – Black and American.”

It was your hearing Jerry. Did any of that sink in with you? 

 

The political landscape has become inundated with so-called issues of political correctness, and especially with a discussion of racism. Apparently, everybody is racist, including Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump.  They may be (or not), but how relevant is that in solving the nation’s problems? It’s just a major distraction as the dialogue takes on a life of its own. The following headline tells the whole story:

Headline: Warren: Trump Is Advancing Environmental Racism, Economic Racism, Health Care Racism

Civil rights activist Bob Woodson responded to Warren’s remarks by saying that Elizabeth Warren is preaching a false solution; racism is being used as a shield to avoid talking about the real problems in the Black community.

Comment: And those problems are not being addressed either in the Democratic debates or in Congress, are they?

Headline: AOC Is Playing The Race Card Because She Didn’t Get Her Way Says Senior Black Democrat After Firebrand Accuses Nancy Pelosi of Targeting Women of Color For Going After Her and Her ‘Squad’

Comment: According to Gregory Meeks of the Black Caucus, it’s actually AOC and the Justice Democrats who are targeting people of color (in the upcoming 2020 elections).

Headline: San Francisco Museum Airs Film Calling For White Genocide

Comment: How racist is that? 

Name Calling

09/08/2019

Name-calling has become the favorite weapon of people who have nothing to say. I’m talking about the whole racist, homophobic, islamophobic, white supremacist thing that is rampant today. The following headline perfectly demonstrates that point:

Headline: Antifa Calls A Black Man A White Supremacist

Comment: The man they were referring to is Daryl Davis who is an expert in race relations. Antifa was protesting his talk on “Ending Racism” and even threatened to burn down the venue. Davis had this to say about what occurred: “What it proves is that they had no point…They [Antifa] want to shut down any dialogue with racists, people who have differing views of their own. Their thing is, you know, just beat it out of them or make it impossible for them to meet.”

Comment: AOC and some other members of Congress are apparently okay with that…the “beat it out of them or make it impossible for them to meet” part since they support Antifa.

Comment: Whatever happened to free speech? I guess it’s been redefined by at least a segment of our population, including Antifa. For them, speech isn’t allowed if it differs from their own views.

Other Headlines of the Day:

Headline: Bernie Sanders Trots Out Linda Sarsour As A Campaign Surrogate

Comment: Bernie, you’re supposed to be representing the common man. So, quit surrounding yourself with people who are anti-Semite, support terrorist organizations and are for Sharia Law.

 

Headline: Report: Obama Spied on Israel Using American Satellites

Comment: Not sure what all the fuss is about. Everybody spies on everybody else. However, here’s something to be upset about – Obama even spied on American citizens.

Headline: Joe Biden Forgets Barack Obama Was America’s Last President

Comment: Say it ain’t so, Joe.
