The Morning Report — 7/3/23

joydegrees.jpg

Good morning, kids. Hope your holiday weekend has been restful and enjoyable. The fallout over the long overdue ditching of mirror universe Jim Crow, a.k.a. "affirmative action," something that never should have seen the light of day in this country (or at least what this country used to be before its demise) continues. Of course the incoherent, inchoate and rabid protestations from the usual quarters are in direct proportion to the absolute sound Constitutional grounds and righteous justice in the case against it.

In any event, logic, reason and morality long ago dictated that this debasement of the foundational American concept of equal opportunity as stated should never have seen the light of day. Again, read Clarence Thomas' concurrence, which was delivered as a rare, and stinging upbraiding of the angry piffle from the mind (if you could call it that) of this Kentanji Brown-25 Jackson in her dissent. It didn't even rise to the level of piffle. It was piffle light, although it was crammed to the gills with bromides, falsehoods, distortions and outright lies about this nation and our society. The one thing that it lacked was any reference to the United States Constitution in general nor the horribly bastardized and abused 14th Amendment.

Two reactions worth noting, first from hack Crayola Crayon scribe and racialist shit-whore Jemelle Hill:

Asian Wave Alliance President Yiatin Chu took to Twitter to praise the decision.

“I told my daughter that today is a big day. They’ve ended affirmative action. ‘Isn’t it what you’re been fighting for?’ she asked. I said yes,” Chu tweeted.

Leftists, like Hill, however, saw the joy felt by Asian Americans as bolstering a racist plot to keep blacks out of universities.

“Can’t wait until she reads that you gladly carried the water for white supremacy and stabbed the folks in the back whose people fought diligently for Asian American rights in America,” Hill wrote.

Hill’s characterization of Chu’s happiness with the ruling as stabbing in the back those who “fought diligently for Asian American rights” is troubling on multiple levels. If she’s referencing pioneer-level civil rights activists of the 1960s, then there could be some justification for the comment in the sense that those activists succeeded in opening up many public and private institutions that had hitherto been inaccessible to non-whites.

However, the civil rights activists who wanted to be judged not by the “color of their skin” but by the “content of their character” are clearly not the activists running the modern civil rights movement. The modern civil rights movement -led mainly by those who agree with Jemele Hill – views race as a political and economic calculation.

From the tragic we go to the hilarious:

Left-wing MSNBC anchor Joy Reid admitted Sunday she only got accepted into Harvard University because of race-based affirmative action.

“I got into Harvard only because of affirmative action,” Reid’s personal “ReidOut Blog” began.

You can turn off your sets there. This, ladies and gentlemen, is what we in the trade refer to as "The Clincher." I won't burden you with the rest of the article but Reid claims that Clarence Thomas supposedly benefited from affirmative action as well. I have found nothing in my research to bear that claim out whatsoever. But let's assume for a moment that that's true. I would very much like to do a side by side comparison of Reid's and Thomas' transcripts in terms of grades and the courses that each took. Beyond that, look at the accomplishments of both as well as their scholarly work and attitudes towards this nation, its people and heritage. Like Justice Brown 25, who got a seat on SCOTUS the same way Reid got into Harvard, Joy Reid is an amoeba compared to Clarence Thomas in every metric possible.

Here's a bonus link from another pinhead, the stacked, stupid but dangerous Evita-ta-tas. After one tantrum in which she complains that Thomas' brilliant dismantling of Brown-25's nonsense dissent was both insulting to her, Brown-25, as well as to say that blacks aren't victims, she went off on the Court itself:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested over the weekend that there are no checks on the U.S. Supreme Court and that there was nothing balancing out their power, despite the fact that those things exist. . .

“The courts, if they were to proceed without any check on their power, without any balance on their power, then we will start to see an undemocratic and, frankly, dangerous authoritarian expansion of power in the Supreme Court, which is what we are seeing now, from the overturning of abortion rights, to the ruling that discrimination and, frankly, stripping the full personhood and dignity of LGBTQ people in the United States,” she claimed.

“These are the types of rulings that signal a dangerous creep towards authoritarianism and centralization of power in the court,” she claimed. “In fact, we have members of the court themselves, with Justice Elena Kagan, saying that the court is beginning to assume the power of a legislature.”

That last paragraph: R-O-F-L-M-F-A-O!!!! Honestly, I can't necessarily fault her for not knowing about the concept of co-equal branches, checks and balances, etc. Aside from her getting an advanced degree from Boston University in economics (don't laugh, it's totally deserved!), she's ignorant of those facts and the fact that we haven't really operated the way the founders intended for decades.

The court has acted not so much as a super-legislature but as a rubber stamp of anything and everything anti-Constitutional that either managed to be passed into law by corrupt Congresscritters or mostly as a result of lawsuits brought against the real lawmaking power in this country, the Bureaucracy. What Colada-Tits here is really pissed at is that the power of the Court which she and her ilk have been under the assumption belonged solely to the Left has been used against them!

You can thank Donald Trump for that and in a strange way Ruth Bader-Meinhoff for refusing to give up her seat despite age and cancer when Obama could have easily replaced her with an affirmative action hire or someone as anti-Constitutional as Meinhoff herself. But no. Hillary Clinton wanted to make sure that after her victory in 2016, she would have the propaganda victory of appointing Meinhof's successor. How'd that work out for you, Titty-Caca? Leftists? Bueller?

Psaki-Psircling back to her vomitus, in a strange way she's actually right. Every June, as Mark Levin would tell us, America sits on pins and needles waiting to hear the decisions from 9 very flawed human beings that will have consequences for their fellow 330 million citizens that will be carved into granite, seemingly forever. If she really was serious about "the centralization of power in the court," she should lead the charge to overturn Marbury v. Madison. Of course, what she and her ilk fear is the loss of that power, since as is painfully obvious to all but the demented and the Fetterman, that is what they have wielded against us for so long via a, if not the primary weapon in their arsenal: a corrupt judiciary. Of course, even Trump appointees to the court have gotten it wrong as we saw last week with the gerrymandering case.

But everything is so corrupted that even when court decisions do go our way, the Left and their allies in and out of government will disregard them and figure ways around them, as is already the case with universities that are going to merely use other criteria beyond grades to fill their lecture halls with the unprepared and the undeserving.

Most dangerous of all, are the words and attitudes of the Jemelle Hills of this nation, which merely fuel the fires of hatred and dissolution.

Speaking of which, and after a longer than anticipated disquisition on this issue, we take you to France where almost 80 years later, Schickelgruber gets his way:

While the Leftist-Islamic alliance is cracking elsewhere due to the Left’s determination to normalize gender delusions and fantasies and sexualize children, in France, it has the whole country aflame, and could conceivably bring about the end of the Republic. What is happening now in France was entirely foreseeable, but few dared foresee it, for fear of being called “racist,” “Islamophobic,” and “far right.” Once again those who have been smeared with such terms turn out to have been right all along.

The now-nationwide riots started as video spread of an incident that look place last Tuesday, when a 17-year-old Muslim, who has been identified only as Nahel M., was shot by police. . .

. . . And so the George Floyd riots have come to France, featuring the same dubiously-based righteous rage cloaking organized and clearly planned operations designed to destabilize the state. As in the George Floyd riots, Leftists are out in force, as journalist Andy Ngo described in one of several videos of the riots that he tweeted: “In scenes reminiscent of the 2020 American BLM-Antifa insurrection where police stations were attacked, officers witnessed black bloc militants carrying out a coordinated assault on the Fresnes Prison near Paris during the ongoing race riots.”

Antifa black bloc militants, however, were by no means the only forces taking advantage of the situation. Another demonstrator shouted: “Allahu akbar, we are Muslims, if the police kill us we have the right to kill, it’s written in the Qur’an!” Many, if not most, of the rioters and looters are Muslim migrants. France is around ten percent Muslim, and that population is significantly more youthful, and growing more quickly, than the non-Muslim population. . .

. . . When France embarked upon its policy of admitting Muslims into the country in massive numbers, there were many who predicted that a significant percentage of those Muslims would refuse all efforts to assimilate them into French society and culture, out of the belief that French culture was the product of the “most vile of created beings,” as the Qur’an calls non-Muslims (98:6), while Muslims were “the best of people” (Qur’an 3:110). The French government did little or nothing to stymie the growth of Sharia enclaves all over France, as these enclaves were the natural product of the ethos of multiculturalism; anyone who noted how inhospitable they had become to non-Muslims was shouted down as “Islamophobic.”

. . . Will the French government be toppled? Macron is ostentatiously unworried, even to the Marie-Antoinettish extent of attending an Elton John concert as his nation burned. But his position is more precarious than he is letting on, as the riots are ubiquitous and so far uncontrollable. Will an Islamic state be imposed in France? Almost certainly not, or at least not yet. Given demographic trends, one may be inevitable, but there will likely be a few intermediate steps first. Since the rioters are both Leftists and Muslims, the first government after the fall of the republic could be an authoritarian Marxist one. But for the Left’s allies in France, that will not do in the long run.

As the estimable Robert Spencer warns the Left, your allies today will be your executioners tomorrow. And you'll be the first to go. While there are differences, there are some striking and alarming similarities to the events that touched this off in France and to the racial/political/societal tinderbox that is this nation and what it has rapidly devolved into since 2009.

We'll see if this is the Jemelle Hill to die on.
