Cultural Marxism: "Any Race but Caucasian" ...

Cultural Marxism: “Any race but Caucasian”

Cultural marxism is predicated on destroying the concepts of family, faith, stability, individual effort and personal responsibility.  It works by the politics of division and envy, and by the assignment of indulgences and patronage to favored groups to ensure loyalty.  Meritocracy and true equality based on effort is anathema to cultural marxists.
Take a look at a recent CraigsList employment posting for a new children’s show host posted by “Kids CBC” (Canadian Broadcasting Corp – a government sponsored, public entity)

The requirements are listed as:

1.   Male between the ages of 25 and 35 years.
2.   Any race except Caucasian.

Can you imagine an ad that would be tolerated if it listed ~

Any race except African – American
Any race except Latino
Any race except Asian

So why is “any race except Caucasian” perfectly acceptable in 2013?


“It would be wonderful to pretend that this sort of thing only happens in Canada, and not south of the border. It would also be wonderful to pretend that a thumb is not on the scale against Caucasians in this (and many other) job offerings. This is a sign of the times, the era of state-sponsored racism.”

One Year Later: The Trayvon Martin story is on Legacy Media provided Life Support

The hints were there.  Online articles about the Zimmerman case elicit comments that support Zimmerman's contention that he acted in self-defense by over a margin of 6 to 1; the Martin family attorney who spearheaded the agitation for the Capias suddenly lawyers up himself and seeks to avoid being "put on the record"; and the ongoing failure of the various iterations of the "Trayvon Martin Foundation aka "Justice for TM" " to raise any meaningful or significant funds.

The Trayvon Martin "cause" however, continues to live on, with life breathed into its metaphorical corpse by a corrupt legacy media desperate to maintain the fiction that institutional racism is alive and well in Obama's America.  On life support, the manufactured faux rage of the chattering class continues to be splashed across the pages of online editions of print newspapers and monthlies; and on "specials" by the cable news cabal regurgitating the same tired tropes first put forth by Ryan Julison.

Tonight marked the anniversary of the night of that fateful - and fatal - encounter.  February 26th, 2012 was the night that changed the lives of the Zimmerman and Martin families forever - the night that Trayvon Martin decided that he would respond with fists and fury, and die from the close range shot of man terrified and bloodied by the brutal assault.

Most people in Sanford, FL seek to move on.  The requisite retribution has been made to the local Black Grievance Industry (BGI).  The politically inconvenient White Chief of Police, who did not see any merit for a Probable Cause affidavit was relieved of his duties in a tortured vote of non-confidence, replaced by a reliable black steward from a gang infested and crime plagued dark corner of Illinois.  Local newspapers in Sanford reported that "dozens" were expected at a hastily arranged "Memorial Vigil".  It was clear that interest had waned.  People had other, more pressing concerns, and as more distressing details about the true Trayvon Martin - not the sweet child of Ryan Julison's imagination - became public, the sympathy that the Martin family was first able to evoke melted away as well.

New York, however, would be different.  Crump, Martin and Fulton were flown in, and at the center of the media world, would be fêted and fetishized.  There would be a "Vigil" in New York, and it would be a homage to all that is good and true in the artificial artifice that is liberal, progressive New York.
 

 
As I exited the subway station at Union Square, at first I was concerned that I had misread the date and time.  There were large numbers of young black men in hoodies, but they were hurrying down the stairs to the subway, away from Union Square. 

As I mounted the steps, there was no din, no roar, no pent up emotion pulsing down the gangway as is typical of large public gatherings.  Only the wind, and the swirling scraps of paper tossed by inattentive tourists provided background noise.

When I finally arrived at Union Square, what I saw was less a "Vigil" / "Memorial Service" / "Protest", and more like a media scrum for a Presser.  There were no major network trucks parked like scarabs at the curbs, their satellite dishes blooming like mushrooms after a rainstorm, but a mere collection of second and third tier media with boom microphones and one man crews.

Circling the event thrice, I put the crowd at 200 - maybe if one is generous, 300 souls at most.  I've been to Bat Mitzvahs with a larger attendance.  The "oppressive" police presence toted up another 30 - 40 warm bodies, with the assorted media bringing up the rear with between 25 - 30, depending on what you categorize as "media". 

The first thing that struck me was the dearth of angry black men in hoodies.  In fact, there seemed to be an overly large representation of fresh faced blonde co-eds holding up professionally produced placards declaring "Revolution or Nothing Less" and "Dignity for All".  Speaking to one of them later, it became obvious that they had been recruited as temp help/sign twirlers, and most had forgotten the basic instructions to ditch their college sweatshirts and wear hoodies.  Oh well.

         

         Trayvon Martin in effigy at the Union Square Vigil                           Manhattan, NYC ~  Feb 26th, 2013


Aside from the paid sign twirlers/media props, the largest contingent seemed to be clad all in black with sweatshirts declaring them as members of the "National Action Network" (Al Sharpton's professional grievance group). 

Following that, greatly outnumbering the young black males in hoodies were earnest wealthy white Liberal women from the Upper West Side and Tribeca sporting smart $40 blowouts who wanted desperately for anyone in the black media to acknowledge their "anti-racism" stance and "concern for gun violence".

Rounding out the cast of the forlorn were a group staffing a large table from "BA" feverishly trying to hawk the wares of Bob Avakian**. ("Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America", "What Humanity Needs - Revolution and the New Synthesis of Communism", etc.)  A small group of Bob Avakian acolytes tried to sell "commemorative" newspapers with the iconography of the hoodie-wearing, air-brushed, lighter, less threatening Trayvon for a "donation" of $1.00, but during my time at Union Square, I did not see a single sale.

The event, aside from being marginally attended, seemed to be one gigantic prop put in place for the black media to conduct "interviews" in order to keep the withering Trayvon Martin story alive.  This was met with limited success.  At one point, the organizers asked, "TV guys - are you okay?", and when the response was, "NO" - the organizers then instructed the compliant NYU students to "move in close and kneel down so they can get their shots".  When NBC's the Grio was conducting interviews about the "New Jim Crow" and the "Stop the Mass Incarceration Network" and "Stop Stop and Frisk", the paid help dutifully moved into view, provided a tight shot two to three deep, marginally sign twirling, giving the illusion of a "crowd".  All shots were carefully stage managed and set up for maximum value.  All that was missing was a green screen.  I am sure NBC and the Grio back at the studio can helpfully photoshop in some additional warm bodies to plus up the non-existent "Protest".

As I wandered around, taking notes and talking to participants, something struck me:  the "Vigil" was a motley collection of the delusional, the permanently embittered and the emotionally adrift.

The event was poorly planned, and even more poorly managed - if that was possible.  Confusion reigned.  The few people who had candles began to light them at about 6:45 p.m. just as the gloom was descending (both physical and spiritual).  The organizers had forgotten to request a working sound system in their permit request, so the speakers could not be heard.  At first, the managers attempted a "Mike Check" group megaphone first test marketed in the "Occcupy" movement, but the cold and damp crowd refused to muster the enthusiasm to keep it going.  Then they tried to get a "Call and Response" going - "We are Trayvon",  "Hoodies Up",  "Take to the Streets"... but that also quickly fizzled as well.  Seeing a sense of malaise, someone within the organizational management helpfully spread the rumor that the police had "cut" the power to the (non existent) Public Address system, causing the few hoodie wearing black males to cast a baleful look in the general direction of "New York's Finest" while muttering about the need for "Constitutional Attorneys" to solve the problem.  (What exactly did that mean?  Were they expecting a station wagon of "Constitutional Attorneys" to roll up with a Public Address system and generator in tow and solve the logistical nightmare?  I was confused.)

At about 7 p.m., the event began to turn into an anti-police rally.  Rhetoric was brandished about that the police at the "Academy" are "taught" to hate and distrust all black men, and Zimmerman had the "same attitude" because he was "taught" by the police.  (Try and keep up).

Benjamin Crump then began to speak.  The organizers did not keep the marginal crowd back, so those in the third ring could not see Crump, Martin or Fulton - and because of the lack of the PA system (again - due to a lack of planning and foresight, not some vast police conspiracy), hearing his whole address was difficult.  He repeated many of the same tired talking points he has test marketed within the sympathetic cable market - that a "black mother in Mississippi should have the same expectations as a wealthy white mother in Massachusetts",  "America needs to live up to its creed", and putting up hoodies is to "tell the world that it's not what we wear on the outside, it's what's on the inside".   Next, he raised his voice and tried to evoke a response from the crowd by declaring, "We need to end Stand Your Ground and Move to Share the Ground that God gave us" to limited effect.  He again revisited his "chased, profiled and pursued" verbiage and unsuccessfully tried to sustain another Call and Response of "I am Trayvon Martin".

Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton spoke, but I could not hear them, nor could the majority of the crowd.  At this point, it was 7:10 p.m., and most began muttering in frustration as the crowd began to dissipate, before the designated 7:15 p.m. official "Candlelight Vigil" time.

I remain,
Your faithful correspondent,
SSB

** Bob Avakian is apparently the current Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
http://revcom.us/avakian/

His acolytes seemed to be the most bitterly disappointed by tonight's proceedings, one declaring to me that "We were supposed to have a Revolution, and it was supposed to start tonight.  The parents came all the way from Florida and were not allowed to speak."  (technically not true.  They did speak, but because of there was no PA system, no one could hear them.  Not quite the same thing).

NB:  I asked several police officers on the scene for a crowd estimate.  None were willing to go on record, although one did laugh and tell me, "I think you can count them all yourself".  ;-)

The Corporate Media – Swirling Down the Drain into the Cesspool of Irrelevance…

Reblogged from my post first published on July 28th, 2012 at http://theconservativetreehouse.com

 Disclaimer:  “The Treehouse is intended as a source of opinion and information sharing. It is not intended as a source of legal advice, but merely as Constitutionally protected Commentary and Opinion on current and timely topics, and its writers are not attorneys. Nor did any of them stay at a Holiday Inn last night. For advice on legal matters, consult a licensed attorney."


The Corporate Media - Swirling Down the Drain into the Cesspool of Irrelevancy

It has become well established that the Corporate Media, as it exists today, no longer focuses on objective "reporting", but serves solely as a high priced conduit for editorializing a particular point of view or Agenda.  Even the "News" pages are mere fig leaves for proselytizing the mantra that is au courant.

A recent example of this egregious behavior is in the rush by the Progressive Left to politicize the shooting in Aurora, CO as the work of the "Tea Party".

Disingenuously,   Brian Ross of ABC News "reported" (/sarc/) that the alleged shooter was a "Tea Party" member, and nationally "outed" on live camera a local resident and Tea Party activist. Except that Brian Ross was wrong.  Very, very wrong.  And if he knew - he didn't care - he rushed to live camera to breathlessly report what was an acute error.  And hopefully - a very expensive one for ABC News.
  Graphic: h/t UnAmusement Park blog

There is no "correction", no "mea culpa" that can help you recover from that.

Once again, the Corporate Media was unmasked as not a "News" agency, but as a Propaganda Outlet.

Want to know why Newsweek was sold for a $1?  Why Microsoft disentangled itself from the failing MSNBC franchise?  Why the head of the flailing CNN stepped down?  Why do many local convenience stores no longer even stock the "newspapers"?

The Time of Choosing is Here

As the long hot summer of tornadoes and floods marches on without acknowledgement, let alone an effective or timely response from the Obama Administration, weary Americans continue to be battered and buffeted by the turbulence created not only by Mother Nature, but from the policies and lack of real leadership from those in residence at 1600.

Instead of confronting head-on the challenges of governance, the crew of "czars and change agents" chooses to continually punt, deflect and as a last resort, demonize anyone who attempts to bring forth solutions to the very real problems facing our Nation that are pragmatic and courageous.

Not reporting on problems does not make them go away.
Not addressing problems does not make them go away.
Hurling ad hominem slurs at anyone who points this out does not make them go away.

The problems are still there, and the issues are increasing in intensity. The longer we wait, the more painful the proscription for relief.

Obama does like his "driving" analogies, doesn't he?

Rather than recognize that the road to socialized Big Government always leads to no other destination but a dark valley of idled machinery, crushed and trampled innovation, and a school system that values indoctrination and obeisance to the "party line" over developing the skills of creativity and critical thinking, Obama chooses to not slow down, let alone brake or turn the car around. Full speed ahead! Constitution and liberty be damned! Marx and Mao weren't "wrong", they were just "misunderstood" seems to be the prevalant thinking of the Obama team.

Contrary to the assertions of the Obama stenographers, true unemployment isn't "surprisingly" hovering around 9 %, it really is around 22% on average, if you include those who have given up looking for work and/or have exhausted their unemployment benefits and can not find any meaningful work to speak of.

Likewise, families all across America reject the pronouncements from the press pool, because they can see for themselves the impact of stagflation - rising prices coupled with depressed wages in a stalled private sector - with each trip to the grocery store. The Obama Administration thinks itself clever by removing energy costs from the "consumer market basket" to hide the reality, but each trip to the grocery store still buys less, and filling up the tank is now double what it was on Inauguration Day. No amount of massaged statistics or "spin" can hide those truths.

John Williams does a very good job of analyzing and reporting on what's really happening:

ShadowStats

Refute what the Beltway Bandits have to say - the Republicans do have a strong bench with the Nov 2010 addition of Tea Party favorites in Washington, which is why the corporate media is quick to criticize and dissemble, rather than address the substance of their proposals.

Paul Ryan came to Blair House last summer armed with a cogent analysis of the health care crisis, and a pathway to strengthening access to health care choices. Such "grunt work" is not "sexy" nor is it ever really appreciated. Did the Obama team genuinely "consult" and "listen"? No - they dismissed their Republican colleagues in the minority with a haughty,

"I Won".

Allen West has not been shy about pointing out the fallacies of our engagement in the Middle East and central Asia. He should know - having experienced first hand the full impact of dithering and mixed signals as the "pointy tip of the spear" in Iraq. The Democratic response? Thoughtful discussion? Considered respect? No - they unleash their attack dogs from the fringes of polite society to mock him as an "Uncle Tom".

Sarah Palin, although no longer a sitting Governor nor a declared candidate - accurately articulates that the federal energy policy is inextricably linked with national security. Rather than put the needs of the Nation first, Obama inexplicably releases oil from the Strategic Reserves - in an effort to temporarily goose his flagging popularity - a decision that is not only thoughtless, it is reckless.

Freshly arrived Senators Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte have not just sounded the alarm about spending and the debt ceiling, they are trying to hold the Democrats accountable for refusing to even propose a budget - for months on end - and continually punting and delaying with "Continuing Resolutions" which do nothing but idle the engine of the economy because of the uncertainty it engenders. The Democrats' refusal to table a budget is a most serious abdication of responsibility if there ever was one - but the media remains silent and provides cover for their cowardice.

Into this maelstrom steps the newest candidate for the Republican nomination - the winner of which will challenge Obama in the 2012 election - Representative Thaddeus McCotter of Michigan.

Some people would question why a sitting Congressman would willingly subject his family to the venom and bile from the Left any serious candidate and threat to the Obama mythology can expect, when he could just as easily remain comfortably cruising along advocating for his constitutents and doing what he does best - parsing complex problems and formulating realistic and achievable solutions.

Those who are fortunate enough to know Thaddeus McCotter will you tell you it's because he could no longer sit on the sidelines and be silent watching people lose hope and faith as their pleas to their government go unanswered; as our international alliances become more frayed, and Israel is left vulnerable and undefended; and as this Administration continues its apology tour and prostrates itself before China and Saudia Arabia.

Another blogger pointed out that "Thaddeus" means "heart" in Aramaic. That, I concur, is an appropriate name for the low-key but brainy scholar-philosopher from Detroit. "Thaddeus" does have heart - a heart filled with genuine caring for the plight of working Americans, but also the "heart" to run the distance in this bruising marathon to hold not only Obama, but other milquetoast RINOs to account as well.

Thaddeus Means "Heart"

McCotter 2012

McCotter 2012 on Facebook

Greg Gutfield writes in the forward to Thaddeus' new book, "Seize Freedom!" that Thaddeus is

"an authentic, old-school conservative - meaning, he doesn't mind if you think he's the bad guy; he embraces it. Being a true conservative - which I define as putting the individual before the government, and having a kick-ass military - is what I like about T-Mac."

Andrew Breitbart, no stranger to the feeding frenzy of the Left, simply states:

"Thaddeus McCotter is the only elected official smart enough and hip enough to beat the Left at its own game, and the Left damn well knows it".

Seize Freedom!

"Thaddeus" also has a warm and engaging personality, reaching across the aisle to his colleagues to form a rock n roll band, "The Second Amendments" which entertained our troops and helped raise money at FarmAid, and as well helped establish the collegial and bipartisan Congressional Baseball League, where members can get together and build a rapport and relationship outside of the glare of C-SPAN and Caucus Whips.

Between the cerebral policy analysis, sardonic yet gentle self-deprecating humor, respect for moderate and reasonable people on both sides of the aisle, and the ability to jam with the best rock n rollers out there, even the Studmuffin had to admit,

"With Thaddeus, we may actually have a chance to make America whole again".


There are many good people stepping up to the plate to challenge Obama and the grinding machinery known as "the Beltway". They deserve our support and an honest and independent review of their ideas and their vision for America.

Let's not be deterred by extraneous bickering, or get caught up in the "gotcha" games of the corporate media - let's listen directly to all of the Republican candidates unfiltered and unanalyzed by the media "experts". We must - the very soul of the Republic is at stake.

The Time of Choosing is Here.
Pick a side, choose your weapon, and be prepared to fight.

Fix Bayonets.

Why the Little Schoolhouse on the Hill disappeared

I have had the opportunity to hear Charlotte Iserbyt before. She is a genuine heroine and a true Patriot.

I am not generally a fan of Alex Jones, but I thank him for interviewing and preserving what Charlotte has to say.

Parents and those who care about our children need to listen to what Charlotte Iserbyt and John Taylor Gatto have to say about what is really happening in today's public schools:

(The Alex Jones Interview of Charlotte Iserbyt is uploaded to You Tube in 5 parts, each part is approximately 15 minutes long. In my opinion, it is time well spent, and should be a WAKE UP CALL for those who still are asleep)

Deliberate Miseducation of America

Charlotte Iserbyt makes her book available for free download:

Deliberate Dumbing Down

John Taylor Gatto was Teacher of the Year for both New York City and New York State.
His website can be found at:

John Taylor Gatto

The documents that both of these Whistleblowers cite are readily available for
anyone who cares, to read for themselves and make their own determinations.

Obama Corruption and Cronyism on Full Display

Kudos to Judicial Watch for doing the Yeoman's work on this.

While the Corporate Media (we're looking at YOU, GE, MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, LA Times, Wa Post...)
continues to facilitate the examination of now Private-Citizen Palin's e-mails, the Obama Administration continues to take Cronyism and Corruption to new and vertigo-inducing heights:

Obama Corruption

Gee, it's not like the Obama DoJ has ever been (justifiably) accused of corruption/favoritism/contempt of Congress..... nah.

Hey Congress! The Breaking News in Gunwalker Hearings is a good start, but don't you think a little more vigorous "Oversight" on behalf of "We The People" would be helpful (and appreciated) ?

Nah. Nothing to see here folks, no quid-pro-quo, what are you thinking?

Move along, please .....


PS: Judicial Watch is a good group -- non-partisan and dedicated in their quest. However, they live and breathe by donations so they can do the work required to keep "them" honest.

If you have a moment, think about clicking and throwing them a few $$$.
