Morning Greatness: Marketing for an Expansive Security State Begins with the J6 Commission Today

Good Tuesday morning.

Two minutes of hate:

The January 6 witch hunt commission, otherwise known as the “cover up our own incompetence” commission, is set to begin today. This event should be treated as a marketing effort for a jacked up security state. The purpose is to distract from the Democrat/Biden incompetence and to persuade the simple-minded that there was a dangerous army of whitesupremacistpepethefrognaziMAGATrumpaloos who plotted to overthrow the government (iNsUrReCtiOn) and the 2020 election by busting into the Capitol building. As I often ask on my weekly podcast with Julie Kelly, once this purported militia breached the Capitol, what was the plan to seize control of the center of power? How was that going to happen, what was the plan to take over?

USA Today wants you to know there is going to be “emotional testimony” from the “some of the most sympathetic characters” like the capitol police. If GOP is smart (they aren’t) they would have a war room set up to counter and respond to every spin and lie that seeps out of this sh!tshow. We all know how this is going to go down, we saw it during RUSSIA collusion hoax, we saw it during Ukraine phone call/impeachment fiasco, there’s no excuse not to be prepared to counter Democrats’ publicity stunt. But the GOP won’t so don’t expect much.

Robin DiAngelo, a white racial grievance profiteer, has proclaimed that the medium of comedy is just an excuse to be racist. Television shows like “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons” and “South Park” that purport to be comedy are really just providing cover for racism.

“Comedy is, I think, an excuse to get to be racist, right? I think TV shows like ‘Family Guy’ and ‘South Park’ and maybe ‘The Simpsons’ allowed White people to be racist self-consciously,” she told Jaffe. “Like, I know I’m being racist and therefore it doesn’t count and it’s OK.”

“I don’t think it’s benign to do it in a joking way,” she continued. “And there is a concept in comedy called punching up, there are very different power dynamics and it doesn’t hurt in the same way. It doesn’t invoke a deep, deep centuries-long history of oppression when you poke fun at say, White people. But it’s very, very different when you poke fun at people of color.”

“So how do we deal with laughing at a racist joke? We recognized that in those moments we were reinforcing those ideas and those ideologies. Let’s use [former President Donald] Trump as an example when he talked about Mexicans being rapists, I would never say that, but it’s not like I never heard it circulating that I’ve already absorbed and fortunately I have the consciousness now to resist it,” DiAngelo said in the interview.

“And so many white people think they’re just exempt from all of that, so yes, you laughed at it [a racist joke] in the past, recognized that it has contributed to your basic framework of racism, but now you can see it and you’re going to challenge it.”

It’s different when you make fun of White people. No, it is not. Who is this lady, and her band of social justice harpies to tell anyone what their true motivation and intent is regarding their words and deeds? Individuals have free will, they have the ability to deliberate and chose their words and actions and some racial con artist does not get to pass judgement or decipher what true intent lies beneath. The act of doing so is an attempt to control and abuse. These folks do not get to tell you what “color” you are, what “race” you are, if you are an oppressor or what your motivation in life is. They also don’t get to hold you accountable for actions that long proceeded your birth.

We have an entire generation of feeble, broken children who have been robbed of their carefree youth because they are obsessed with semantic gatekeeping and hermenuetically examining their racial pedigree to gain recognition and acceptance. When I was a teenager we lived under the threat of nuclear war but my fellow Gen Xers  and I were still out partying, hanging out at the mall and getting into trouble.
