The Morning Report — 6/30/23

jivesharptone.jpg

Good morning kids. Well, this accursed year is half over as we are yet again on the cusp of celebrating Independence Day, or for me lighting a memorial candle for a deceased nation. If the footage of Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants, the history making "president" who garnered a record-breaking 82 million votes (from about 8,200 actual voters) walking off the set of MSNBC before finishing an interview doesn't by itself convince you that we're dead (to be charitable, I could say that even he had enough of the rancid stench emanating from Nicole Wallace), the fact that we're celebrating a SCOTUS decision that finally bans what can only be described as mirror universe Jim Crow, a heinous blatantly anti-constitutional practice that should have never been instituted in the first place surely does. Yet what's worse by orders of magnitude, and only underscores my assertion that we live in a zombie republic is the rabid, foaming at the mouth, horribly racialist rage against this decision by an alarmingly large portion of our society.

In a rather ironic twist, the decision came down the same day that Christine King Farris, the last living sibling of Martin Luther King Jr., passed away at the age of 95. All things considered, that can be interpreted as either a good omen (not her death!) or a harbinger of darker days yet to come. By any honest standards of clear, unambiguous logic, morality and just law, affirmative action was, is and always will be absolutely wrong, regardless of what it was pimped as, and for sure what its actual intention by those who pimped it is.

It is bad enough to redress an historical wrong by imposing the very same wrong on another segment of society. But add to it the fact that for the past 60 years, the intentional dumbing down, anti-acculturation into the mainstream and political enslavement of "communities of color" to use the left's vomit-inducing term by the Democrat-Left has created a vast underclass of people who lack even the most basic educational and interpersonal skills to even begin to compete in higher ed and ultimately the job market.

It's not white supremacy that kept black American youth down. It was Leftist supremacy by a Rainbow Coalition if you will of race hustlers all along that was the culprit. So, you deny entry to qualified students based on their merit and in return give their seats to truly underperforming and unprepared minority students. And when they fail and drop out, you don't reexamine and reflect on the policy that made them fail, you simply lower the standards – repeatedly – until they do "succeed." And blame white supremacy and institutional racism for the ones whom even the most wafer thin of phony degrees can't be manufactured.

Munchausen's by Progressivism, ladies and gents. Except all the progressives ever did and ever do is institute policies that make the situation a thousand times worse than if they hadn't. Can individual people be racist? Of course. Can groups of these individuals band together and cause quite a bit of pain and suffering? Ever hear of the Dixiecrats? But 60 years after Republicans finally succeeded in passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (extremely flawed as it was, but that is for another time), after creating the most massive welfare state in existence and spending upwards of $25 TRILLION dollars on programs supposedly designed to uplift black America and end racial discrimination, America is still institutionally racist and white supremacist?

How can that be? How can that possibly be? Spoiler alert: it can't. But if I'm wrong, please explain how Barack Obama gets elected to the presidency. Twice. Or how Oprah Winfrey becomes a multi-billionaire. Either their playing Steppin Fetchit for whitey or institutional racism is a myth.

What it does illustrate is the abject failure of government to solve a societal ill. Not that there was an ill that needed to be solved in the first place. After the Second World War, the black American family was intact and on the verge of entering the mainstream all by itself. Naturally, elements of society led primarily by Democrats resisted. Violently at times. But the writing was on the wall. And so when LBJ quipped after the passage of the Great Society that the "nig*ers will be voting for us for the next 200 years" he wasn't kidding.

I'm going off on tangents but the salient point here can be illustrated by comparing and contrasting both the horrendous, vapid, chock-full-o-bullshit screed from this Kentanji Brown "25" Jackson and the absolute evisceration of same by Justice Clarence Thomas, arguably the greatest jurist this nation has produced in half a century. Beyond their words, the comparison of their life stories is another perfect illustration of why "affirmative action" is a complete abomination in the first place.

Jackson offered more than 9,000 overwrought words of leftist social commentary, “expound[ing] upon the universal benefits of considering race in this context.” Her embrace of identitarianism and defense of Asian-American discrimination is jarring. Jackson believes state-funded institutions should judge Americans by their immutable characteristics and historical sins rather than their individual accomplishments and actions. It’s really that simple.

“With let-them-eat-cake obliviousness, today, the majority pulls the ripcord and announces ‘colorblindness for all’ by legal fiat,” Jackson’s sarcastically noted. I dunno; colorblindness seems like a worthy ambition. But the Supreme Court didn’t institute “colorblindness for all.” It could no more do that than stop justices from mixing their metaphors. What it did was reaffirm colorblindness as a matter of law. On this topic, the Fourteenth Amendment and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is clear:

No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

The Civil Rights Act does not make exceptions for disadvantaged groups, “lived experiences,” or race — quite the opposite. Using Jackson’s logic, any institution could adopt any racial preferences they wanted. As long as there was some emotional argument for it. Though, in fairness, there isn’t much logic to be had in progressive Calvinlaw.

Moreover, as Jackson surely knows, the Supreme Court exists to use “legal fiat” to uphold the Constitution. Every opinion that Jackson has been on the majority has used this approach.

Justice Thomas cuts like a Mossad Joo laser shark:

JUSTICE JACKSON would replace the second Founders’ vision with an organizing principle based on race. In fact, on her view, almost all of life’s outcomes may be unhesitatingly ascribed to race. …

This lore is not and has never been true. Even in the segregated South where I grew up, individuals were not the sum of their skin color. Then as now, not all disparities are based on race; not all people are racist; and not all differences between individuals are ascribable to race. … Worse still, JUSTICE JACKSON uses her broad observations about statistical relationships between race and select measures of health, wealth, and well-being to label all blacks as victims. Her desire to do so is unfathomable to me. I cannot deny the great accomplishments of black Americans, including those who succeeded despite long odds.

JUSTICE JACKSON then builds from her faulty premise to call for action, arguing that courts should defer to “experts” and allow institutions to discriminate on the basis of race. Make no mistake: Her dissent is not a vanguard of the innnocent and helpless. It is instead a call to empower privileged elites, who will “tell us [what] is required to level the playing field” among castes and classifications that they alone can divine. … Then, after siloing us all into racial castes and pitting those castes against each other, the dissent somehow believes that we will be able—at some undefined point—to “march forward together” into some utopian vision. … Social movements that invoke these sorts of rallying cries, historically, have ended disastrously.
Unsurprisingly, this tried-and-failed system defies both law and reason.

It's pure poetry for those who have eyes to read and mind to process it. As I said earlier, the life stories of these two individuals and how they got to where they got on that bench could not be more of a contrast of opposites. In any case, it's funny how Brown 25 has absolutely no clue as to what a woman is ("I'm not a biologist") yet here she is bloviating about race as if she is the Oracle of Delphi on the subject.

Clarence Thomas on the other hand, raised by his grandfather and who felt the sting of racism in the Democrat south, who went on to for a brief time embrace radical Marxism and then ultimately the Constitution literally overcame all of the hardships, obstacles and bullshit that life can hurl at anyone at any time all by himself. "That's a storybook, man" as Joey once said of Obama, after calling him "clean and articulate" and who can speak jive whenever he wants to.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, we still have to contend with this:

Democratic Wisconsin state Sen. LaTonya Johnson said “fuck the suburbs” Thursday during a Senate floor speech addressing a proposal for more policing.

The state assembly passed a $99 billion budget plan to cut taxes by $3.5 billion and increase funding for certain programs, according to The Associated Press (The AP). LaTonya said the suburbs “don’t know a goddamn thing” about city life.

“Fuck the suburbs because they don’t know a goddamn thing about how life is in the city,” Johnson said.

But wait! There's more!

Several attendees at the California Department of Justice’s final Reparations Task Force meeting created a scene during the public comment section of the event Thursday, demanding reparations from the board.

Several excited California residents took advantage of their opportunity to address the board directly, yelling into the mic that the time for reparations is “now!” 

One encouraged the crowd to raise their fists and chant their desires for restitution, while another stood up and screamed for a “divorce” settlement between Black Americans and the rest of the country. 

The Reparations Task Force meeting this week represented the final one in a series of public events facilitating discussions between California residents and state officials about establishing potential restitution for perceived inequality between African Americans and the rest of America stemming from slavery and centuries of discrimination. . .

. . . The meeting sparked with the second speaker, a Black man named Reggie Romaine, who claimed that what the board had recommended in payments is not enough.

He suggested that African Americans get half the country after divorcing from the rest of America. 

He began by saying, “This reparations task force, I appreciate y’all. But you all opened up a whole can of worms. I’m going to tell you this. Reparations is about repair. To me, I qualify. I’m going to tell you how you repair this.”

“First of all America, from the evidence that they gave us, you’re guilty,” he said. “In 1619 we were eating fool food! You kidnapped us! Put a hate crime on us! That’s the first one. Now you came here with all the other atrocities. When you brought us here, you raped our men, women, and kids. So, therefore, you married us!”

“Don’t treat us like no cheap piece of meat!” he exclaimed, before pushing for a national divorce. “So, therefore, our last name’s ‘American!’ So now’s the time for a divorce! What do you get in divorce? You get half the money, half the land, alimony, child support, attorney fees, and everything else! So that’s what we want!”

The speaker then plugged his website along with something he dubbed the “1619 Party,” which he described as a sort of independent political platform built around providing reparations for African Americans nationwide.

I don't think we need Barbara Billingsley or subtitles to translate that, do we?

Thank you, Democrats! Look at all the peace, love and understanding and unity that you've brought to the nation! By the way, they opened by thanking GAVIN NEWSOM for moving this thing forward.

If ever there was an example of white supremacy . . .

Have a good weekend.

    ABOVE THE FOLD, BREAKING, NOTEWORTHY

  • "What the 'climate change' agenda does is remove hope for the future. It means people can’t afford food, much less a house. It means that there is no point in working hard because the future will be less than it is today. It creates despair, it creates misery, it spurs crime and addiction. Without course correction, it is our future and the death of everything that is good. It is evil itself and its people are demonic. The countries we used to call 'developing' may be our only hope."
