J. R. Dunn hits a home run with his scathing analysis of white privilege – read it here: “A Brief History of White Privilege“.
A quote from the article –
……“None of this is intended to make any claim for victimization in the form of reparations, set-asides, or affirmative action. The Irish were never victims. The question that remains is: Where do we discover “white privilege” in all this? The answer is: We don’t. The Irish are the second largest “white” ethnic group in the U.S. If “white privilege” actually existed, it would be found among the Micks. But search as long as you like, and you will find none of it. The Irish made their way in this country along a hard, stony road, earning what they gained in the face of attempted genocide, prejudice, hatred, violence, and murder. White skin didn’t feed one single starving Irish infant.
The same can be said for most “whites.” The Poles, with their country stolen out from under their feet, brutalized by no less than three empires. The southern Italians, enslaved by the Normans, the Turks, and “da Moors” (according to Dennis Hopper), not to mention their own northern brethren. The Jews, chased from pillar to post across entire continents and finally subjected to the greatest horror ever witnessed by history. You’d have to search for quite some time to find an ethnicity that benefitted from “white privilege.” White skin never saved anyone from persecution, torment, slavery, starvation, or anything else.
The simple truth is, all peoples have suffered in ways that beggar the imagination. All peoples found refuge and a way up and out in America.
“White privilege” is simply another sick fantasy of the academic left, one that’s in the process of being transformed into a social myth.
Like all such myths, its true danger lies in its perniciousness — the possibility that it will infect public consciousness the same way that gay marriage, immigrant “dreamers”, and victim hoodlums have done.
It needs to be fought ferociously and continuously.
Otherwise, we’ll find ourselves, not too far down the line, with a choice between the Dem candidate who vows to end white privilege tomorrow and the GOP candidate who wants to wait a year.”
Put otherwise, as stated at “The Blog of Monte Cristo“, “this is why you’ll get a fist in the face if you tell me to manage my white privilege, asshole.“
Joe and I couldn’t agree more. A round of big girl panties for all those poor oppressed sad desperate bastards who can’t think straight. Pull them panties up nice and tight…..
Sad Memories, Vengeful Thoughts
Where were you when the World Trade Center was attacked by madmen?
Don’t spout any B.S. about understanding their perspective; don’t get distracted, they were human scum. Don’t go there….
The Western world came to a standstill, a cross roads, a precipice more dangerous than any other single event in our history.
The question is, where were you?
I was at work in Kelowna at the TELUS DAC. My shift started at 6:00 a.m., the beginning of the dispatch day. A television on the north wall of the office was tuned to a local station. When images of the carnage were broadcast, I literally didn’t want to believe my lying eyes. What madness, what viciousness, what an end to innocence.
My legs were wobbling, and the urge to weep was quickly replaced with a stronger burning emotion.
I felt rage.
Had I a red button to push at the time, there would have been mushroom clouds and glass plains created in a number of locations on another continent.
The rage hasn’t abated for me, or for Joe.
Don’t ever forget who did this, and what they said.
Don’t ever forget who did this, and what they stand for.
Don’t ever forget heathen savages celebrating in the streets in unstable foreign lands.
Don’t ever forget the sacrifice of police and fire fighters working to bring the people in the towers to safety.
Don’t ever forget the people who jumped to their death to avoid immolation.
Don’t ever forget why they did this.
The enemy will not………..
Their foundation beliefs are evil, derived from corrupt culture, ignorance, and arrogance.
Would I should have a red button today, I would wear it out. My rage will not diminish.
Don’t ever forget. Don’t ever forgive.

Joe likes what Daniel Greenfield has to say – “The Syrian Refugee Crisis Is Not Our Problem“.
A quote from the article –
………..”Hussein said: “We have the feeling that the aid workers are heartless.” (He) lives in a trailer that cost $3,000. The air-conditioner runs with electricity he is tapping from the Italian hospital. The water for his tea is from canisters provided by UNICEF. He hasn’t worked, paid or thanked anyone for any of it.
And why would he? He’s entitled to it by virtue of his superiority as a Muslim and our inferiority as infidels. There is no sense of gratitude. Only constant demands as if the people who drove out their own Christians and Jews have some moral claim on the charity of the Christians and Jews of the West.
The media howls that the Syrian refugee crisis is our fault. That is a lie.“…………
Joe and I were wondering how so many people could be organized so quickly and efficiently in this “exodus” of convenience.
Cruel it may sound, but stand and defend your own country. Protect your children and women.
Another round of big girl panties for all these “men” – better see Europe before it falls to the religion of peace all over us.

THE RELIGION OF PEACE (ALL OVER US)
A great sign message. Not enough to defeat the bastards, but out there in the open.
The so-called “religion of peace” keeps giving and giving. The latest numbers are 26,871 deadly terror attacks since 9/11 – check for yourself at thereligionofpeace.
The seventh (final) in the Brainwashing series – “Nature vs Nurture”:
All in all, a very informative series for Norwegians. The English subtitles were a pain, but very interesting interviews of people with their head in the sand.
WEATHER (0R NOT)
A week of blah until Wednesday afternoon. From then on, sunshine and cloudless skies. Hallelujah! Tonight, Sunday night, the cumulus and scud cloud is circling Vernon, threatening wet and cold precipitation. Not my cup of tea. Old man winter can’t be too far off…….. Almost time for down periscope!
