Blinding whiteness of ‘party of diversity’ spawns #DemDebateSoWhite hashtag:

Amid a chorus of Orange Man Bad echoing from the Democratic debate stage, another color was on some voters’ minds as Twitter gadflies highlighted the absurdity of 10 white candidates fighting over who’d best represent minorities.

Critics of the achingly PC identity-politics wing of the Democratic Party could hardly believe their luck as the first night of round two of the Democratic primary debates kicked off without a single nonwhite candidate on stage (despite three remaining in the race). A graphic calling out the melanin-challenged slate was soon spreading across social media behind the hashtag #DemDebateSoWhite.

[…]

“Remember every one of them calls the president a racist, as they stand on stage without one black person in sight,” one user tweeted. Another slammed the Democrats’ hypocrisy, pointing out that if 10 white Republicans had shared the stage, an equivalent hashtag would be #1 on Twitter…

Claiming Baltimore is not a mess just because ‘racist’ Trump said it will lose Democrats votes:

Baltimore is one of the most deprived cities in the US. President Trump knows it. Bernie knows it. Most importantly, the voters know it. Answering Trump’s criticism by shouting “racist!” is both bad politics and bad for the city.

Maryland’s largest city has the second-highest murder rate in the nation, behind St. Louis, Missouri. In a city of 600,000, over 300 people will have been shot by the end of the year for the fifth year running. If it were a country, it would be one of the three deadliest in the world.

More than a fifth of its citizens live in poverty, its trash problem has been covered in hundreds of local articles dating back decades, while the rat infestation received its own recent documentary on PBS – which, incidentally used it as a metaphor for general urban decay.

Thus, when President Donald Trump called it a “rodent infested mess” that “ranks last in almost every major category” he is on strong ground – while the Democrats who have run the city since 1967, and Congressman Elijah Cummings, who has been in his post for 23 years and 12 elections, are vulnerable… (Jared Kushner owns Baltimore apartments ‘infested’ with rodents, mould and maggots)

Wait… are Dems to the right of GOP on forever wars?

…few things earn more bipartisan support in the US than bloated defense budgets and foreign military adventures, but it seems in recent years Democrats are managing to outdo their Republican rivals on hawkishness.

The Democrat-controlled House has voted 284-149 to pass a budget resolution giving the Pentagon a record $738 billion. Even some of Trump’s fiercest critics like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib voted ‘yes.’

While there once was an anti-war wing of the Democratic Party, that is “no longer” the case…

Quote from the following article:

White liberal academics can earn more in a day lecturing about their own “white privilege” than the median black household makes in three months, public records obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation and U.S. Census data show.

Left-wing academic Robin DiAngelo is renowned in social justice circles for crafting the “white privilege checklist” and for coining the term “white fragility.” Listening to her speak comes at a steep price.

DiAngelo, who is white, charged the University of Kentucky $12,000, not counting travel expenses, housing accommodations and meals, for a two-hour “Racial Justice Keynote and breakout session” in March, according to a copy of the speaking contract obtained by the DCNF through public records requests.

“Dr. DiAngelo’s schedule cannot accommodate phone calls related to services,” the contract states, instructing that all communications be sent via email or through DiAngelo’s assistant. “If phone calls are deemed necessary, they will be charged at a rate of $320 per hour.”

DiAngelo’s fee for the event was more than a quarter of the annual median income for black families which is just over $40,000, according to U.S. Census data…

Like war, politics is a racket. The Politics racket paves the way for quasi-criminal assholes to become wealthy and powerful, and for doing nothing more than continually lying and stirring up shit, which we the individuals will eventually have to deal with. And yet, most of you insouciant sheep to the slaughter continue to play these lowlife creatures’ sick, twisted game.

Pseudo left assholes, like the hypocritical, greed-driven fraud in the image above, are actively promoting division and race/civil war, and with the aid, no less, of their ‘racist’ Trump-card. Some alt sites are all atwitter right now, because Trump’s stand on the border/immigration issue is being labeled as ‘racist’, which sends these race-card carrying, race-baiting asses into a feeding frenzy. You must be joking, race-card carrying, race-baiting asses, with this ‘racist’ bullshit? Trump, who I despise as much as pseudo left morons, is following the same path that his predecessor, “Step-N-Fetch-It” Obama, followed, when dealing with illegal immigration. However, “Tattle-Tale-Gray” Obomber is a card carrying member of one of the pseudo left’s sacred-cow designations, which makes him untouchable, or so these pseudo left morons believe:

This Hillary clone/wannabe is pandering the ‘white privilege’ bullshit, in order to keep making inordinate amounts of money, while at the same time, seeking to divide Americans even more than they already are. And she has lots of help from the pseudo left politicians and media talking-heads, as well as the aforementioned alt sites.

If the pseudo left and their sacred cows want a race/civil war, they will get one, and right up their tight-little snowflake-asses. As I have stated many times before, pseudo-left/left-coast/Hollywood types, no matter where they are, have no idea of what they’re dealing with, if they choose to take on Hillary’s so called “deplorables’, and especially those “deplorables” who live in rural areas.

{BTW, I lived in California awhile back, and the most naive and out of touch with reality folk exist there: it’s Disney Land, 24/7, and this is why normal, rational human beings are continuing to leave California by the thousands (“California tumbles into the sea…”).}

‘Antifa’, for instance, is just a paper tiger, in comparison; the Antifa gang/thugs take their hit and run bullshit to the city streets, where mostly the weak, frail and effeminate exist. Let them take their bullying bullshit to the rural areas of the North/Canadian-border states or the Midwest farmlands (where trained militia are waiting for them), and they will end up in body bags faster than you can say Bill’s Fucked-Up Bitch Lost. These Antifa asses have no idea of who they are fucking with! And the so called “deplorables” that I am referring to here, are not only fed up with these pseudo left assholes and their completely-fucked version of reality, they are even more fed up with this piece of shit government. And most of these so called “deplorables” have had military-training/battle-experience, which means they are most likely heavily armed, and would love nothing more than kicking some left-ended, Antifa ass.

Or as the pseudo left’s sacred-cow ‘playas’ would mumble, “Ya better aks somebody!” Yep, you sure as hell better, Mr and Ms pseudo-left/Antifa, or else… “Your goin’ home in a body bag. Doodah! Doodah!”:

$12K A Day: How White Liberals Profit From Pushing ‘White Privilege’

By Jake Dima and Peter Hasson | The Daily Caller

White liberal academics can earn more in a day lecturing about their own “white privilege” than the median black household makes in three months, public records obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation and U.S. Census data show.

Left-wing academic Robin DiAngelo is renowned in social justice circles for crafting the “white privilege checklist” and for coining the term “white fragility.” Listening to her speak comes at a steep price.

DiAngelo, who is white, charged the University of Kentucky $12,000, not counting travel expenses, housing accommodations and meals, for a two-hour “Racial Justice Keynote and breakout session” in March, according to a copy of the speaking contract obtained by the DCNF through public records requests.

“Dr. DiAngelo’s schedule cannot accommodate phone calls related to services,” the contract states, instructing that all communications be sent via email or through DiAngelo’s assistant. “If phone calls are deemed necessary, they will be charged at a rate of $320 per hour.”

DiAngelo’s fee for the event was more than a quarter of the annual median income for black families which is just over $40,000, according to U.S. Census data.

The description for the two-hour event said DiAngelo would be talking about her book, “White Fragility: Why is it so hard for white people to talk about racism?”

Her website defines “white fragility” as “a state in which even a minimal challenge to the white position becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive responses. These responses function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and maintain white control.”

The consulting and keynotes section of DiAngelo’s website says her lectures take an “anti-racist” approach based on ideas.

“Racism is the foundation of Western society; we are socialized into a racial hierarchy,” it says. It also touts her “expertise” in “clearly and accessibly presenting information that is politically and emotionally charged.”

The author is in high demand: Her website says she’s booked through March 2020. Tickets for a half-day workshop she led in San Francisco earlier this month started at $130 for adults and $65 for kids.

DiAngelo’s fee typically runs between $10,000 and $15,000, a city official in Everett, Washington, where DiAngelo keynoted a conference in April, told the DCNF. The city government promoted the conference on its website, but the official said all costs were covered by an outside nonprofit, Communities of Color Coalition. The nonprofit didn’t return the DCNF’s inquiries.

DiAngelo’s clients include Amazon, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The Hollywood Writer’s Guild, the YMCA Seattle Public Schools and City of Oakland, among others, according to her website. DiAngelo did not return multiple requests for comment.

Left-wing academic Tim Wise, author of the book “White Like Me”, charges handsome speaking fees that rival DiAngelo’s.

Wise’s booking agency lists his speaking fee in the $10,000-$20,000 range. Wise told the DCNF in an email that his asking fee is typically limited to $10,000, “unless I am doing multiple events at a venue.”

He added that the agency, which receives 25 percent of his fees, “puts money back into grass-roots organizing and leadership development led by individuals and groups of color. So between that, and the fact that they promote an overwhelming share of [people of color] on their roster, my working through them actually helps to amplify the voices of people of color, not just my own.”

The University of Michigan, a taxpayer-funded institution, paid Wise $10,000 to speak at a Martin Luther King Jr. symposium in January, public records obtained by the DCNF show.

“I am brought in, in almost all cases by people of color on campuses: staff, faculty or students of color,” Wise told the DCNF. “They are the ones making the decision to bring me in, and pay me, typically because they surmise (probably quite accurately) that it would be helpful to have a white voice speaking to these issues, rather than having to always do the heavy lifting themselves, or leave it up to folks of color to be the ones educating others about issues of racism.”

“In other words, I am responding to the decision by people of color in most cases to have a white speaker like myself come and add my voice to a conversation they are already leading in most instances,” he continued. “In most all of these cases, the schools have also brought in people of color throughout the year to speak to these matters, but feel that it is not pedagogically helpful to give the impression that these are just black and brown folks’ issues, or things about which white folks shouldn’t be speaking out too.”

“One can agree or disagree with their thinking on this matter, but at least let’s be clear: it is people of color who are making that call, and I tend to assume they know the climate on their campuses better than I do,” Wise said. “If they think I can be helpful, so be it. This is why they request me when they do. It is what they say explicitly to me, and to my agency/organization.”

Wise added that “if a school wants to have an event with me and a person of color, perhaps in conversation, that if my fee is normally higher than the other person’s that they must either raise that person’s fee to meet mine, or if they can’t afford that, I will lower mine to meet theirs.”

“Most of the time the people of color with whom I’ve done these actually charge more than me, or the same, so this becomes moot. But it has always been my policy that if the person of color would normally have made less, I insist on leveling the pay structure,” he said.

  1. Quite the article… and yes, I read the whole thing, rant and all. It makes me want to… to… to go back to the north of Alberta and go hide in the bush, cut fire wood, fight mosquitoes and black flies and try to grow a garden and build a root cellar that won’t freeze come winter. Oh yes, and buy a pair of snow shoes and a good axe on the way up… 🙂 I shouldn’t be surprised, I knew this was going to happen, and that we’ve seen nothing yet, but still, it’s shocking to see how blatant the corruption is now. Thanks for a good read, Sojourner.

  2. Maybe I was always fooled, I don’t know. But it seemed like the left used to be a counterbalance to the neocon warmongering and raping of the middle class.

    But now, they are the same, except for petty bullshit like what has been happening since 2016.

    I’m angry,. and I’m not sure what to do with the anger.

    Thanks for your comment, Sha’Tara!

  3. Ah, you’re welcome. Anger is a good tonic. I’ve used it often enough. What do we do with any of our feelings? We channel them into constructive thoughts or acts… or we send them down the emotional tailpipe and carry on as if they had not happened. That’s my way, for what it’s worth.
