The Rare Racial Post

We have seen the monofocused racial dullard Uptown carry on for two days. One of Uptown's running themes is that I am not White. First of all I honestly do not think in those terms except when filling out an idiotic government form. In reality, the government and universities should adopt the Clintoon policy of don't ask, don't tell on race. Let applications be judged on their merrits without racial bean counters playing statistical games with scores.

The problem is that this common sense approach does not meet the adgenda of the far left. Lets take a look at Uptown who has White and Native American ancestry. Who determined Uptown is Black? Well the racial nuts of the left enforce a one percent rule. Of course if Uptown were in Brazil he would be considered White because the rules are different there. It seems in Brazil having one percent white blood makes one White. Perhaps we should start a fund to send Uptown to Brazil, I will put in $1.39 anyone else...

Back to my racial origins last I checked I am still a member of the human race. My skin tone is still Alabaster,my eye color is still green and my hair is straight.
To me these are still just attributes. My younger brother the beloved Rav Roov has dark skin, brown eyes and curly hair. These are still atributes to Rav Roov as well.

Uptown may be onto something as it took a trip to Northern Vermont for me to conclude, he must be right. I have been stopped at least twenty times by local law enforcement in less than a year. How did local law enforcement figure out that I am not White? Am I an uncover Brother? Well it seems the answer is fairly simple. Local police tend to stop cars with exotic plates traveling early in the morning.

Of course as a person who has been "gasp" profiled I feel the urge to call the ACLU, not. I just continue on go about my business and enjoy life.

I was at Friendly's the other day and got lousy service. How did the staff at Friendly's know I wasn't White? Well, apparently everybody gets lousy service at Friendly's. This proves that the resturant is egalitarian. Local residents do joke about bad service at Friendly's all the time.

I also couldn't get a cab in town the other day. There are very few cabs in town, but this is a minor detail. Did I mention the cab driver was Black? " Hey you lazy MF
you live around the corner walk".

Welcome to planet Uptown where every detail of life has a racial component. Lets try
Uptown and Beaker go to the supermarket.

Uptown: Put down that toilet paper. Why do you insist on using white toilet paper.
Beaker: Because 99% of toilet paper happens to be white.
Uptown: So you are excluding toilet paper of color.
Beaker: Hmmm is this some sort of trick question. Okay shut up I'll take this.
Uptown: Aha you racist this means you want to foul toilet paper of color.
Beaker: Hey Uptown how about we go international no toilet paper.
Uptown: What now you are making fun of third world people, you bigot.
Beaker: Forget this I am going to the next item.
Uptown: Put that racist product down. It is Hebrew National a racist brand name.
Beaker: I like Hebrew National Franks.
Uptown: You clanish Jews do not spend money in other communities.
Beaker: What about this.
Uptown: That product has a racial slur in it Polska Keilbasa.
Beakerkin: What about these?
Uptown: Well the police say most Brats are people of color and Bratwurst is an obvious relflection of that.
Beaker: Forget this. Next item
Uptown: Aha I knew you were one of those.
Beaker: One of those what???
Uptown: You chose Log Cabin Syrup based on your alternative lifestyle
Beaker: Say what?
Uptown: Well it is obvious that it is a hidden code that you are a Log Cabin Republican.
Beaker: You idiot, its on sale.
Uptown: You can't fool me this brand is also on sale.
Beaker: All right I'll take this one.
Uptown: Aha you racist you picked Aunt Jemima a racial sterotype. The only acceptable use of this stereotype is when communist poultry call Condi Rice by that name.
Beaker: All right pedal to the metal
Uptown: Put that stuff down
Beaker: Now what.
Uptown : Vermont is the most racially segregated state in the Union.
Beaker: Uptown how about I give you twenty bucks
Uptown: Make it thirty and we will consider it a down payment on your reparations.
Beaker: But my people weren't even in the country at the time of slavery. You have also been saying I am not white.
Uptown: If its not green its obscene.

If race is on your mind 24/7 you become a cartoon charachter like Uptown.

" If Mel Gibson were Black you would have been written several posts" Uptown

Obviously Uptown must think he works for psychic friends networks. He can read my mind and know what I am going to post next. The fact that we do not post on racial topics on this blog seems lost on Uptown.

Uptown, claims to be worried about fighting racism. However when a KKK type shows up at FPM he says zero. When Duncy or John Brownpile use anti-Black epithets he says nothing. The truth is Uptowns color has always been Red. He is just another Marcuse based group rights communist who is too lazy to read the textbooks. Has he read the sections about WEB Dubois yet in Daniel Flynn's book? Uptown doesn't read books, he colors in them.

People like Uptown who view everything through a racial prism need professional help.

It is an interesting comparison with my city, Houston. Blacks and Whites feel much more kinship here, because we are outnumbered by Latinos.

And unlike in your case where the differences are only cosmetic, here there is the additional barrier of language, as well as culture.

Sure we have a few in the Black Muslim community (I wonder about people who follow a prophet who held a black slave) Who are quick to shout racism. But nobody pays any attention.

Our biggest racial problem now is that we evil Black and White middle class don't want to pay more dollars for the continued education of documentaly challenged children. Of course we are heartless bastages.

We have a good mayor though. (strangly he is a Democrat) Right now he is fighting the ACLU, and trying to get all the bums off of the city streets. He actually bought public service adds asking us not to give them money! I love that guy!

beakerkin said...

Wasn't Lee Brown the Mayor in Houston?

uppity, desperately seeking meaning and purpose for his life!

Farmer John said...

What do you expect tmw. He has no G_d! Just a void to fill.

Farmer John said...

He suffers and kind find no meaning for it. So he blames the other and shares his suffering... by making them suffer... those responsible for my suffering guys! Who then perpetuate the cycle.

Farmer John said...

No meaning. No redemption. No Redeemer. No forgetting.

The Merry Widow said...

Exactlly! He has nothingness at his heart, a G*D shaped-void as it were! Cramming it with garbage that doesn't fit. There is no dancing, except on someone's grave. No singing, except when trumpeting an empty victory. No joy, except in "besting" someone. No light, except in burning. Nothing, shouting in a void for no reason, with no hope! That is why I pity him!

Mr. Ducky said...

Beak, over the high side again. At times you become nonsensical. This is one.

Farmer John said...

...the shopping trip's a classic beak. Great stuff!

Farmer John said...

And so's the colouring book!

Farmer John said...

What good is it if you've only got two crayon's though? Hmmm....

Purple Avenger said...

Uptown must think he works for psychic friends network

Ummm, that's the psychotic friends network.

nanc said...

i just love when beak loses it! and now, i'm reminded of my own sweet black brother-in-law married to my alabaster skinned, blue-eyed sister.

every stinking fourth of july, if you spend the day at their house he insists on having fried chicken, greens and fatwaback, beans of some sort, cornbread and of course - WATERMELON! i shake my head at him and he says something like, "sustah with the ashy skin - this is what black folks eat on the fourth!"

then he goes off and barbecues a t-bone for himself because he doesn't like any of the food he's cooked!

i love that man.

beakerkin said...

Ducky even you had to like the trip
to the grocery store. Just pretend Uptown is Chris Rock with an oversized head. I can be played by Jason Alexander.

Mr. Ducky said...

"People like Uptown who view everything through a racial prism need professional help."

Unlike Beamish, kuhncat, Beak and many others who see everything through a religious prism.

Unlike Jason who sees things through the Randoid prism, one of the most deluded of all.

Others who see things through the military service prism.

Uptown comes off pretty sane in this crowd. You folk don't handle open discussion well.

Here's Beak with a reasoned retort:

"You're a commie. You support Kim Jong-il"

Or kuhncat and beamish:

"You do know that the pope is the anti-christ and the Bible is absolute literal truth."

You folks are deluded, you are upset because you see your social mobility being destroyed and yet you keep on the path to your own destruction. Idiots delight, keep going, we've tried to warn you.

beakerkin said...

Ducky

Obviously you do not read enough of my posts to have figured out I am secular. Calling a Communist a communist in your case is factual.
In Uptown's case he is of the Marcuse based strain but hasn't read the basic playbook.

You would enjoy North Korea, I hear Kim Jong Mentally Ill is a huge film buff. The two of you can marxo analyze West Side Story or
Falling Down.

Farmer John said...

If you try and touch my SUV again, mr. ducky, I'm going to destroy your social mobility!

Farmer John said...

I love the duck. The priest of the one class preaching about social mobility.

Farmer John said...

...as he clips the tail off a sperm from a test tube and contemplates motility.

The Merry Widow said...

plucky- Bwahahahahahaha! Thanks for the memories...
Actually, the Antichrist will not be the pope, but a political leader! Don't comment unless you have read the book cover to cover! BTW, that means that you have a prism you see everything through, plucky, old bean! So that means you can't comment either.

go to drudge headlines right now! please! clinton is not happy with an abc miniseries coming out - yeehaw - the other shoe may finally be dropping and perhaps a good reason to once again watch one of the big three.

Elmer's Brother said...

hahahahahaha!!!! I love it Beak this is hilarious.

You should make one up for Starbucks next.

Beak: I'll have a black coffee, with sugar...sweet and black like my women.

Uppity: Is that how you like your women..you racist pimp.

Beak: okay I'll have a cappuccino. Steamy and hot like my women.

Uppity: What! Only creamy white girls good enough for you?

Beak: Uhh make it a Chai Tea.

Uppity: Asian women is it. You make me sick Beak. Answer the question...ANSWER THE QUESTION!

Beak: Can I have a bottled water.

Mr. Ducky said...

I wouldn't say I preach one class, Farmer. What good disciple of Pareto would deny the interaction of the masses and elites.

nanc's rejoicing at the ABC claptrap should give you good reason to brush up on your Gamsci, Farmer.

I don't know about Kim's tastes Beak. Right now I'm waiting on my order for Jacques Tati's "Playtime". Maybe the funniest film ever made. Even outdoes Keaton.

They're also finally releasing Rosi's "Hands Over the City" next month I would have preferred "The Mattei Affair" but still, one of the great socialist film makers. Do make it a point to view "Hands Over the City". One of the great socialist realists.

Mr. Ducky said...

Comrade Farmer I have some hope that you can understand.

beakerkin said...

The Farmer is no comwad. He is a reactionary.

nanc said...

madze is having a football and beer party - hiccup...

Farmer John said...

There. You reveal your error once again mr. ducky. You spend all your time trying to generate economically-based Pareto efficiencies and optimalities that will yield more material surplus values to the common masses, whilst ignoring the spiritual component entirely. The Pareto Frontiers used to generate options for your social choice theory trades is deficient and ignores the happiness factor entirely.

For the last time, you need to study Xenophon's "Oeconomicus" to understand the nature of your deficiency.

The roots of Marx's theory were in the materialists, Adam Smith and Thomas Malthus.

Instead of Pareto Optimalities, you need to generate Platonic Harmonies.

It'll put the spirit back in the equation, and perhaps yield an enormously important by-product. Happiness!

btw - And there is one particular Pareto Distribution I think you might wish to consider. Happiness equals 1. Anything less, well, means you aren't doing your job, and probably shouldn't be doing it!

as Ivan Karamazov said in Dostoyevsky, "Brothers Karamazov"...

'Can you understand why a little creature, who can’t even understand what’s done to her, should beat her little aching heart with her tiny fist in the dark and the cold, and weep her meek unresentful tears to dear, kind God to protect her? Do you understand that, friend and brother, you pious and humble novice? Do you understand why this infamy must be and is permitted? Without it, I am told, man could not have existed on earth, for he could not have known good and evil. Why should he know that diabolical good and evil when it costs so much? Why, the whole world of knowledge is not worth that child’s prayer to dear, kind God’! I say nothing of the sufferings of grown-up people, they have eaten the apple, damn them, and the devil take them all! But these little ones! I am making you suffer, Alyosha, you are not yourself. I’ll leave off if you like.”

But what pulls me up here is that I can’t accept that harmony. And while I am on earth, I make haste to take my own measures. You see, Alyosha, perhaps it really may happen that if I live to that moment, or rise again to see it, I, too, perhaps, may cry aloud with the rest, looking at the mother embracing the child’s torturer, ‘Thou art just, O Lord!’ but I don’t want to cry aloud then. While there is still time, I hasten to protect myself, and so I renounce the higher harmony altogether. It’s not worth the tears of that one tortured child who beat itself on the breast with its little fist and prayed in its stinking outhouse, with its unexpiated tears to ‘dear, kind God’! It’s not worth it, because those tears are unatoned for. They must be atoned for, or there can be no harmony. But how? How are you going to atone for them? Is it possible? By their being avenged? But what do I care for avenging them? What do I care for a hell for oppressors? What good can hell do, since those children have already been tortured? And what becomes of harmony, if there is hell? I want to forgive. I want to embrace. I don’t want more suffering. And if the sufferings of children go to swell the sum of sufferings which was necessary to pay for truth, then I protest that the truth is not worth such a price. I don’t want the mother to embrace the oppressor who threw her son to the dogs! She dare not forgive him! Let her forgive him for herself, if she will, let her forgive the torturer for the immeasurable suffering of her mother’s heart. But the sufferings of her tortured child she has no right to forgive; she dare not forgive the torturer, even if the child were to forgive him! And if that is so, if they dare not forgive, what becomes of harmony? Is there in the whole world a being who would have the right to forgive and could forgive? I don’t want harmony. From love for humanity I don’t want it. I would rather be left with the unavenged suffering. I would rather remain with my unavenged suffering and unsatisfied indignation, even if I were wrong. Besides, too high a price is asked for harmony; it’s beyond our means to pay so much to enter on it. And so I hasten to give back my entrance ticket, and if I am an honest man I am bound to give it back as soon as possible. And that I am doing. It’s not God that I don’t accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket.'


...only it won't be G_d to which the above rant will be addressed.

'If they [children], too, suffer horribly on earth, they must suffer for their fathers’ sins, they must be punished for their fathers, who have eaten the apple; but that reasoning is of the other world and is incomprehensible for the heart of man here on earth. The innocent must not suffer for another’s sins, and especially such innocents!'

Farmer John said...

ps - My "Platonic Harmony" more closely resembles Jonathan Swift's Houyhnhnm Land than your cinematic Metropolis...

Mr. Ducky said...

Beak, please shut up you Trotskyite.

Sheesh, and you don't even know it.

Robert Bayn said...

Isn't it odd those who claim the most racism, often end up being pretty racist themselves?

As far as Mel Gibson goes, what he said was stupid, but it's not like he said "lets wipe those jewwwwwwwwsssssssssss out", he made what was a drunken observation. I personally thought people were being to hard on him, really his so called Anti-Semetic remarks didn't bug me as much, as the poster child of Christianity in Hollywood being drunk as a skunk out on the town with strange women.

Farmer John said...

The only choice Gamsci gives me in the above link is a chance for my kids to move from the box on the lower left of the photot, to the one in the upper left.

My mental utopia dispenses with education/ indoctrination entirely! My physical utopia, I ground in the status quo ante.

Mr. Ducky said...

Farmer, it's not great narrative. You watch Metropolis for the visuals, but its been sliced up so many times I do hope you are using the recent release by Keno.
It's close to it's original form. Probably as close as it will ever be.

Do take a look at Lang's "Dr. Mabuse the Gambler". His montage of the fascist crime boss Mabuse tanking the stock exchange is genius. It's been restored to its full length(nearly 4 hours) and finally the death of Cara Carozza achieves its full cinematic magesty.

Farmer John said...

I'll keep my eyes open for it, mr. ducky! I suspect my daughter @ NYU will see it a few times....

beakerkin said...

Ducky

This has to be one of your movie lines. I am fairly certain that a
life lived as an examplary Cold Warrior disqualifies me as a Trotskyite.

If I weren't a Social Liberal I could repeat the line of the Great Mark Levin. " I am a Reaganite and in your face". Alas my social Liberalism kills that retort.

Mr. Ducky said...

As i suspected, Beak. You have no clue to the nature of a Trotskyite yet you run around throwing labels like someone with knowledge.

I am only offering insight to why you can't be taken seriously outside the extreme right and religious fringe.

Mr. Ducky said...

Farmer, is your daughter at the NYU film school? Major league.

Farmer John said...

Not quite. Cinematic Studies with intent to transfer... then follow-up at my alma mater for grad school... USC.

She wants to join the majors. Methinks she needs to pitch in the minors first.

beakerkin said...

Duncy

I am well aware of the rather lame attempts to portray Neocons as former Trotskyites. The description
does not apply to a life long anti Communist. Nor am I neo anything as I have always been a Republican since I was eligible to vote.

Wrong again Ducky.

Mr. Ducky said...

Yeah, Farmer. They all want to hit the majors without any seasoning.

You get to the majors through advertising or music videos these days. Maybe she'll graduate in time for Snakes on a Plane VII.

I despair for this culture.

Farmer John said...

Don't dispair, mr. ducky. If O&G's "Revolt of the Masses" offers any insight into the culture problem, its' that it'll make the ticket lines shorter. You'll be lined up for tickets to the Godard festival. I'll be in line at the Opera, and the kids will be lined up Snakes on a Plane VII.

That is of course, unless this republic of ours folds under the strain of disunity inherent in the interim.

Farmer John said...

erratum: inherent in the system.

beakerkin said...

Ducky

Have you ever figured out the masses have spoken but your kind refused to listen? Create high quality family fare and they will come.Think the Incredibles, Shrek and even the Passion of the Christ.

Farmer John said...

...or take your webcam and start shooting the next socialist Blair Witch Project. You're bound to win the Gold Palm @ Cannes.

Farmer John said...

...just make sure that your witch is a transvestite who digs seducing trick-or-treaters...

Mr. Ducky said...

Well Farmer John, I will say this for Blair Witch. They did a damn good job demonstrating how useless over the top special effects are.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Ducky,

I thought my liberal use of Profanitese to encapsulate complex logical structures would clue you in that I'm a fairly irreligious Christian. Your personal attacks are failing to get out of your cap pistol.

Purple Avenger said...

I don't see out of the closet commies as being particularly upwardly mobile in the US.

OTOH, it appears virtually impossible to be elected president if one doesn't express some measure of religious affiliation (even if its just for show).

"And I also wonder if you righties are interested in ceasing to compile crime stats by race?"

Not really uppy since we know who public enemy #1 is by RACE. Black man rape's and kills a white woman--we go after a black brutha and perhaps violate his civil rights in the process of arresting him before sending him to the chair.
Terrorists--ARAB-Muslims 97% of the time--the other 3% would be black muzzies or white Chechans.
Illegal aliens--Hispanic bean-dips and occasionally some Russian and Eastern Asian scum.

Any questions?

beaker sez

"In reality, the government and universities should adopt the Clintoon policy of don't ask, don't tell on race."

But continue to collect racial data with regards to crime, right?

And of course continue racial profiling, right?

"Let applications be judged on their merrits without racial bean counters playing statistical games with scores."

But let's not judge criminals by their actions but attempt to tie their behavior to race or "culture".

"The problem is that this common sense approach does not meet the adgenda of the far left."

Because of it's obvious inconsistency.

"Lets take a look at Uptown who has White and Native American ancestry. Who determined Uptown is Black?"

America did.

This nation adopted the "one-drop" rule.

uptownseteve said...

florian

"Terrorists--ARAB-Muslims 97% of the time--the other 3% would be black muzzies or white Chechans."

I would love to see your example of black Muslim terrorism.

John Muhammad was a serial killer (97% of them are white boys).

Prior to 9/11, the two major acts of terrorism on the American continent, the bombing of the 96 Olympics in Atlanta and the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, were committed by white Christian males.

Russet Shadows said...

Uptown, you forget the third person of interest in the Oklahoma City bombings. Typical, but I had to point it out.

And what is race but a color? It is therefore an insufficient lens to look at the world through; it provides no foundations but those readily observed by a one-second glance. Culture makes a better lens, ethics/philosphy one better still, but religion makes the best by far, for reasons too lengthy to go into here. In any case, to compare religion to race as a fundamental viewport on life is laughable as it is predictably shallow.

I thought the humor was hilarious, actually. How do racially-oversensitive people shop? How do they buy clothes? How do they do anything without going through a mental meltdown caused by overanalysis!

Uptown, maybe you should date.
Ducky, maybe you should take a class in logical thinking.

"As far as Mel Gibson goes, what he said was stupid, but it's not like he said "lets wipe those jewwwwwwwwsssssssssss out","

OMIGOD!

He did say "FUCKING Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world".

That was reprehensible.

You guys freak out about Jesse Jackson calling NYC "Hymietown" and try to mitigate "fucking Jews"??????

"he (Gibson) made what was a drunken observation."

So you would have excused Jackson if he were drunk?

"I personally thought people were being to hard on him,"

WHO was hard on him??

What cracks me up is that there is a powerful Jewish presence in Hollywood and I haven't JACK from most of them.

Where's Eisner, Spielberg, Katzenberg????

Outside of Rob Reiner, they've all been silent.

Where's David Horowitz?

Ohhh, but if Spike Lee had said it.

Total hypocrisy.

uptownseteve said...

russett shadows

The other two people of interest in Oklahoma City were James Nichols and another white Army buddy of McVeigh.

Just figured I'd point that out.

As far as dating, no thanks.

I'm happily married to a Nubian Goddess.

kuhnkat said...

Uppity whined:

"And I also wonder if you righties are interested in ceasing to compile crime stats by race?"

Yeah, they kinda put the shaft to the idea that whites are racist and blacks are the victims don't they Uppity??

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Can we remove race from all those other gubmint forms when we do??

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The media already HAS removed it, unless you are white, in which case they want your religion and all other affiliations too!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

uptownseteve said...

russett shadows

"And what is race but a color? It is therefore an insufficient lens to look at the world through; it provides no foundations but those readily observed by a one-second glance."

I totally agree.

So why are righties always trying to tie behavior and intelligence to RACE?

"Culture makes a better lens, ethics/philosphy one better still,"

This is where it gets sticky.

What is culture?

What you learn from your family?

Your community? Your region?

I learned when I was in the service that because I was from the Northeast and grew up in a fairly integrated, multi-hued environment, I was quite different socially and asthetically from blacks from the rural South.

"but religion makes the best by far,"

Interesting remark.

You said it would take some time for you to fully explain this.

Still I'd be interested in hearing more sometime.

FLORIAN said...

Hey uptown:
My various examples of black muzzie terrorists: How about John Muhammed (no he was a muslim terrorist--not a seriel killer) and his goon boy orphan from Jamaica? How about the seven black clowns arrested in Miami recently for plotting to kill thousands of Americans and bomb the Sears Tower? How about Richard Reid the POS Jamaican who wanted to bomb a plane out of London?

The list is a lot longer than you thought chumpy.

OH and when did McVeigh say "IN THE NAME OF JESUS"????? He never claimed to be Christian. You obviously believe that terrorists like McVeigh pose more of a threat than the Camel Jockey towel-heads who would love to bathe in your blood!

kuhnkat said...

Russet Shadows,

actually it was the third through about the sixth people of interest that was suppressed!! All ME!! There was a white guy from Germany also.

FINAL REPORT On The Bombing Of The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building April 19, 1995: The Oklahoma Bombing Investigation Committee

Library of Congress Catalogue Number 2001117318

isn't exactly a leisurely read, but, is an excellent reference and story of the bombing!! I bought mine a couple of years ago so it doesn't include information that was pried out of the FBI in the last couple years!!

And, of course, Uppity still won't admit that the WHITE GUY DIDN'T DO IT!!

HOW RACIST OF UPPITY TO IGNORE FACTS AND BLAME THE WHITE SECURITY GUARD!!

Even though the Olympic Bombing has all the earmarks of an al-Aqeda type operation, including other similar bombs which DIDN'T go off, he insists the lone white guy did it!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Did I mention that STUPIDITY causes racism and vice versa?? Uppity qualifies on all counts!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

uptownseteve said...

florian

"How about the seven black clowns arrested in Miami recently for plotting to kill thousands of Americans and bomb the Sears Tower?"

I'm betting that these 7 Haitian immigrants were a motley Miami gang who were enticed and entrapped by offers of money and support but had no actual plan to engage in terrorism.

None of them had ever been anywhere in the US except South Florida.

I notice you didn't mention anything about William Krar and his band of Texas white supremacists who were CAUGHT with chemical weapons and artillery and openly stated a plan to attack US government facilities.

kuhnkat said...

Uppity,

on the Mel issue, where are the OTHER remarks and activity over the years showing that he is a confirmed anti-semite??

I have made racist remarks to INDIVIDUALS when I was drunk and trying to piss them off. I have also done it sober. Of course, it was PERSONAL and directed at the INDIVIDUAL with whom I was in conflict!!

Couldn't you just see Mel getting up after the incident, providing he even REMEMBERS what he said, and claim that he was just pissed off at the Jewish cop and was trying to get his goat??? Yeah, that would have been GREAT. What he DID do was come out and immediately apologise for totally innapropriate remarks. When has Farrakhan or Jesse Jagoff ever done that without being yelled at??

Your RACISM is showing again!!

Uptown way back on FPM you posted that I am not White around a year ago. You forget the much of the stupidity you post.

Thats funny Uptown, you seem to love statictics. Lets see if Blacks get accepted at lower rates in Colleges of Jobs then you are all in favor of fuzzy Math. Why should race even be on a job application or College Admissions. It is there because the Marxist Civil Rights racket wants it there.

Couldn't you just see Mel getting up after the incident, providing he even REMEMBERS what he said, and claim that he was just pissed off at the Jewish cop and was trying to get his goat??? Yeah, that would have been GREAT."

But kuhnkat, his attack was not toward an individual but an entire community!

"What he DID do was come out and immediately apologise for totally innapropriate remarks. When has Farrakhan or Jesse Jagoff ever done that without being yelled at??"

Jackson and Farrakhan apologized profusely and Gibson was yelled at (by some) as well.

I gotta tell you, it's humorous to watch you spin this.

uptownseteve said...

beaker

I said that you are definitely insecure as a Jew and you are constantly trying to prove your whiteness by lampooning blacks, wailing about MArxist ghosts, and demonizing Muslims.

I'm not into stats.

I don't know where you get that from and I agree that racial classifications should be removed from job and college applications.

I also wish that an Afro-centric name wouldn't impede a person from getting a job interview or being hired

Lets see Gibson was drunk, but what was Jackson's and Farakhan's excuse. Lets ee who cares about them or you and your race based idiocy.

Hey Uptown I hear John Brown has 40 acres near Chernobyl and a two headed Mule. Why don't you go where you are wanted? Any time I chose I can resume moderation Uptown.

Uptown you hear that noise its laughter. Nobody is laughing with you Uptown, they are laughing at you.

Speaking of how you like to pick races of people at random. Who was the traitor that lobbed the grenade
at his fellow American Soldiers in Kuwait. What ethnicity and religion was he. Here is a clue . The culprit was not a scientologist.

Lets see so we remove all doubts by checking a box and playing fuzzy Math. Sorry Uptown but no race box would put the Commies in the Civil Rights racket out of business.

Uptown I am not lampooning Blacks. I am lampooning YOU, because you are a bore and will not get off the blog, 200 coments about stupid racial crap.

Get your own blog you lazy clown.

What color was John Walker Lindh, the American who joined Al-Queada?

"Lets see Gibson was drunk, but what was Jackson's and Farakhan's excuse."

Oh so we'll excuse Gibson because he was drunk???

So when do we start excusing people who commit crimes while under the influence of alcohol or an illicit substance?

Beaker, you're sad.

You wouldn't acknowledge a white Christian anti-semite if he had a swastika carved on his forehead.

"I am lampooning YOU, because you are a bore and will not get off the blog, 200 coments about stupid racial crap."

Okay beak.

What would you like to discuss?

"The Passion of the Christ"?

Lots of people thought that movie was anti-semitic.

I just filled out a customer service questionaire, dropped it in the box, and went home.

I'm laughing too.

nanc said...

hiccups?

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Uptownseteve,

"Shaniqua" is an English name, composite of "Shan" and "qua." "Shan" is an Anglization of "Sian" which is the Welsh form of "Jeanne," which is the feminine form of the French "Jean" (John), which of course comes to us from the Hebrew "Yochanan" via the Greek "Ioannes."

"-iqua" is a dimunitive.

So, girls named "Shaniqua" are really just Joanies.

But not an African name. The other "Afro-centric" names you list appear to be French street names.

uptownseteve said...

beamish

Do you know any white, hispanic or Asian folks named "Shaniqua"?

I've never met anyone named "Shan".

Perhaps you could provide the etymology of the names "Towanda", "Shereka", "Tania"or "DeQuandra".

These are some of the names of children of people I know.

The names are creations of black people who are expressing creativity and independence from dominant American status quo.

nanc said...

like the hippie freaks i once knew who birthed their first son under a big tree and named him "oak leaf"?

nanc said...

they're all stupid monikers, seteve. they show no creativity - just ignorance in knowing what a kid goes through with the names we give them.

uptownseteve said...

nanc

The beauty of those names are that they are a complete rejection of what people like you feel is "acceptable".

You don't make the rules nanc.

Get used to it.

nanc said...

how do you think the guy i used to know whose name was "harry peter bush" felt going through school, seteve?

nanc said...

btw - all great names - just not together and definitely not in that order!

kuhnkat said...

Uppity,

Mel was yelling at a COP. There were no cameras and NO NEWSMEN OR CROWDS!! How did that insult all the Jews who would have never heard about it if the NEWS didn't decide that one drunk being stupid was a BIG DEAL?!?!?!?!

Oh yeah, I forget, a lot of people think that because someone has made a lot of money or pictures, what they say MEANS something!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

You freaking MORON!!! You can't even do the most basic mental exercise!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

How the HELL was he insulting a whole race by saying something STUPID TO ONE MAN!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Now, if the Passion of the Christ was actually anti-semitic, THAT would have been insulting a RACE!!!!!

Did you mean to insult the RACE of everyone you have insulted in your life?? I can call an indian stupid without meaning the whole race. I can call ALL indians stupid in front of one indian to piss off that indian. In both cases I am insulting the person in front of me, although I should apologise to the rest of the non stupid indians for calling them stupid to piss off the one STUPID one!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You gotta lighten up man. Is this what gives you people early heart problems?? All this pent up HATE and assuming EVERYTHING is an attack on the whole RACE instead of personal dislike by the idiot in front of you??

Like I said before, my insults have all been PERSONAL, like me calling YOU RACIST!!! Of course, this is a true statement so I don't feel bad about it later!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

So, Uppity, every time you call all whites racist, that is racist huh?? You aren't just trying to insult the guys you are conversing with?? Or are you so stupid that you don't recognise yourself calling all us racist every time you puke about institutional racism and needing affirmative action and all that other smack you spew?

Or do you REALLY BELIEVE THAT EVERY ONE OF US ARE RACIST????

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You RACIST MORON!!!!

nanc said...

p.s. - i do make some of the rules.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Do you know any white, hispanic or Asian folks named "Shaniqua"?I've never met anyone named "Shan".

You likely know them as John, Jan, Jane, Jean, Joann, Shawn, Sean, etc. It's just translation. I know a few black Americans named "Shan," but no Africans.

Perhaps you could provide the etymology of the names "Towanda", "Shereka", "Tania"or "DeQuandra".

"Towanda" derives from an Algonquian (Native American) tribal word meaning "burial ground." Not African.

"Shereka" derives from a Persian word meaning "sweet." Not African.

"Tania" is a shortened Anglized form of the Slavic "Tatiana," which derived from the Roman "Tatius." Not African.

"DeQuandra" is the Old English word "Quandra" (Queen) with a French prepositional "of" or "from" in front of it. Not African.

Are there any "Afro-centric" names that actually come from Africa?

uptownseteve said...

kuhnkat

"Mel was yelling at a COP. There were no cameras and NO NEWSMEN OR CROWDS!! How did that insult all the Jews who would have never heard about it if the NEWS didn't decide that one drunk being stupid was a BIG DEAL?!?!?!?!"

The cop revealed the contents of the conversation to the media.

Jesse Jackson made the "Hymietown" comment in a private conversation as well but it was exposed to the press by a (black) reporter who overheard it.

What's the substantive difference?

uptownseteve said...

"So, Uppity, every time you call all whites racist, that is racist huh??"

"why do people of color get upset by the word "boy" and the name "toby" - just curious."

I'm not bothered by the name "toby" and I believe any adult male would resent being referred to as a "boy" unless it was by a family member.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

What is your point?

Calling Indo-European, Semitic, and native American names "Afro-Centric" is nothing short of cultural theft and I find your lack of sensitivity to be appalling.

uptownseteve said...

beamish

Do you feel the same way about white boys rapping or playing rock-n-roll and jazz?

kuhnkat said...

Uppity said:

"What's the substantive difference? "

Mel was drunk and pissed that he wasn't getting the kid glove treatment as befitted his Hollywood position.

And Jesse Jagoff's excuse was...

uptownseteve said...

"beaker" is an anglicized bastardization of the bantu name "Biko".

Tell your boy to stop rippin' us off!

uptownseteve said...

kuhnkat

"Mel was drunk and pissed that he wasn't getting the kid glove treatment as befitted his Hollywood position."

So why didn't he just call the cop an asshole and ask him the time honored celebrity question....

"Don't you know who I am!!!"

Hey pal, spin it anyway you like.

You look pathetic.

Mel Gibson doesn't like Jews and he's not the only white guy who feels the same.

Keep on whining about "black anti-semitism" and hoping that will get you full acceptance into the "white family".

We aren't the ones who marched your ancestors into the ovens.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Do you feel the same way about white boys rapping or playing rock-n-roll and jazz?

Only if they were to make the crass and ignorant statement that these musical styles are "Euro-centric." To my knowledge, no white rapper, rocker, or jazz musician does that.

But you claim that those names you listed above are "Afro-centric," based on nothing but your anecdotal observation that you only know black people with those names.

I just pointed out that these names have no African etymological origins at all. The "Afro-centricity" you impart them is counterfeit. A fraud.

You're a cultural theif if you think those names are "Afro-centric."

You'd think someone who comports himself as a proud black man wouldn't try to pass off non-black cultural references as "African."

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Actually "Beaker" comes from Middle English biker, from Old Norse bikarr, probably from Old Saxon bikeri, from Medieval Latin bicarium, which means "shut up you commie jackass."

kuhnkat said...

Uppity,

Since you didn't fill in the blank I will.

Jesse Jagoff's excuse is that he is a racist antisemitic @sshole. Kinda like Fairykahn but more of a pussy.

Fairykahn is simply a megalomaniac, as in insane.

What is YOUR excuse???

Oh yeah, calling a cop an @sshole is really going to hurt his feelings!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

You MORON!!!

Oh, by the way, you are making the ASSumption that I am semitic!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Kuhn is a good old German name.

Kat is short for Katana a good ole Japanese light sword, or a classic early 80's Japanese Superbike.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh, and just to make it really fun my great great great grandma's name was Puckett!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

So, what is "Afro-centric?" Does the word actually have an applicable meaning in a cultural context?

Or is it a marketing ploy?

beakerkin said...

Uptown

Beakerkin is my pen namer it translates in English to relative of the Beaker. The Beaker is the nickname of my brother the Beloved Rav Roov. That nickname stems from
the charachter on the muppet show.

Beaker is also a Hebrew word meaning to visit. You have overstayed yours so take a hike.

Farmer John said...

Yes, Afro-centric actually does having an applicable meaning in a cultural context, only the cultural-context was French, not African. It's a product (concept derived from) of the French postivist school and their scientific sociology (science of human development and *snicker-snicker* human progress).

Thanks for nothin' August Comte!

Farmer John said...

Plato, "Statesman"...

YOUNG SOCRATES: What was the error of which, as you say, we were guilty in our recent division?

STRANGER: The error was just as if some one who wanted to divide the human race, were to divide them after the fashion which prevails in this part of the world; here they cut off the Hellenes as one species, and all the other species of mankind, which are innumerable, and have no ties or common language, they include under the single name of 'barbarians,' and because they have one name they are supposed to be of one species also. Or suppose that in dividing numbers you were to cut off ten thousand from all the rest, and make of it one species, comprehending the rest under another separate name, you might say that here too was a single class, because you had given it a single name. Whereas you would make a much better and more equal and logical classification of numbers, if you divided them into odd and even; or of the human species, if you divided them into male and female; and only separated off Lydians or Phrygians, or any other tribe, and arrayed them against the rest of the world, when you could no longer make a division into parts which were also classes.

Farmer John said...

Comte didn't understand this mis-application of the "scientific method". Aristotle has already developed the proper division of classes; "science" in one class and "Humanities" in the other. The "science" already left the "humanities". To drag it back in and create the field of "sociology" was stupid! And to divide by artificial geographic boundaries was unpardonable.

his room looking like an immortal god. He at once sent the
criers round to call the people in assembly, so they called them
and the people gathered thereon; then, when they were got
together, he went to the place of assembly spear in hand--not
alone, for his two hounds went with him. Minerva endowed him
with a presence of such divine comeliness that all marvelled at
him as he went by, and when he took his place in his father's

Farmer John said...

from Wikipedia...

In Ancient Greece, a deme (plural demoi) was a subdivision of Attica, the region of Greece surrounding Athens. Demoi as simple subdivisions of land in the countryside seem to have existed in the 6th century BC and earlier, but did not acquire particular significance until the reforms of Cleisthenes in 508 BC. In those reforms, enrollment in the citizen-lists of a deme became the requirement for citizenship; prior to that time, citizenship had been based on membership in a phratry, or family group. At this same time, demoi were established in the city of Athens itself, where they had not previously existed; in all, at the end of Cleisthenes' reforms, Attica was divided into 139 demoi. The establishment of demoi as the fundamental units of the state weakened the gene, or aristocratic family groups, that had dominated the phratries.[1]

A deme functioned to some degree as a polis in miniature, and indeed some demes, such as Eleusis and Acharnae, were in fact significant towns. Each deme had a demarchos who supervised its affairs; various other civil, religious, and military functionaries existed in various demoi. Demoi held their own religious festivals and collected and spent revenue.[2]

Demes were combined with other demes from the same area to make trittyes, larger population groups, which in turn were combined to form the ten tribes, or phyles of Athens. Each tribe contained one trittys from each of three regions, the city, the coast, and the inland area.

Maxims of Napoleon...

Maxim XXXVII. From the moment you are master of a position which commands the opposite bank, facilities are acquired for effecting the passage of the river; above all, if this position is sufficiently extensive to place upon it artillery in force. This advantage is diminished if the river is more than three hundred toises (or six hundred yards) in breadth, because the distance being out of the range of grape, it is easy for the troops which defend the passage to line the bank and get under cover. Hence it follows that if the grenadiers, ordered to pass the river for the protection of the bridge, should reach the other side, they would be destroyed by the fire of the enemy; because his batteries, placed at the distance of two hundred toises from the landing, are capable of a most destructive effect, although removed above five hundred toises from the batteries of the crossing force. Thus the advantage of the artillery would be exclusively his. For the same reason, the passage is impracticable, unless you succeed in surprising the enemy, and are protected by an intermediate island, or unless you are able to take advantage of an angle in the river, to establish a cross-fire upon his works. In this case the island or angle forms a natural tete de pont, and gives the advantage in artillery to the attacking army. When a river is less than sixty toises (or one hundred and twenty yards) in breadth, and you have a post upon the other side, the troops which are thrown across derive such advantages from the protection of your artillery, that, however small the angle may be, it is impossible for the enemy to prevent the establishment of a bridge. In this case, the most skillful generals, when they have discovered the project of their adversary, and brought their own army to the point of crossing, usually content themselves with opposing the passage of the bridge, by forming a semicircle round its extremity, as round the opening of a defile, and removing to the distance of three or four hundred toises from the fire of the opposite side.

Pareto optimalities, mr. ducky? Platonic harmonies? Musical chords? Re-ligio's

Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary traces the word—religion—back to the Latin word religio meaning “to tie, to bind, to restrain.” The word is actually a combination of two words, re and ligare. The prefix re means “to return,” and ligare, from which we get our word ligature, means “to bind.” Perhaps no word more accurately describes the man-centered, performance-based, reward-punishment systems that men have devised to earn God’s acceptance and favor than this word “religion,” also known as, “return to bondage.”

"When the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn appeared, we admired the island and wandered all over it, while the nymphs Jove's daughters roused the wild goats that we might get some meat for our dinner. On this we fetched our spears and bows and arrows from the ships, and dividing ourselves into three bands began to shoot the goats. Heaven sent us excellent sport; I had twelve ships with me, and each ship got nine goats, while my own ship had ten; thus through the livelong day to the going down of the sun we ate and drank our fill, and we had plenty of wine left, for each one of us had taken many jars full when we sacked the city of the Cicons, and this had not yet run out. While we were feasting we kept turning our eyes towards the land of the Cyclopes, which was hard by, and saw the smoke of their stubble fires. We could almost fancy we heard their voices and the bleating of their sheep and goats, but when the sun went down and it came on dark, we camped down upon the beach, and next morning I called a council.

SOCRATES: We said, if I am not mistaken, that the guardians should be gifted with a temperament in a high degree both passionate and philosophical; and that then they would be as they ought to be, gentle to their friends and fierce with their enemies.

TIMAEUS: Certainly.

SOCRATES: And what did we say of their education? Were they not to be trained in gymnastic, and music, and all other sorts of knowledge which were proper for them?

TIMAEUS: Very true.

SOCRATES: And being thus trained they were not to consider gold or silver or anything else to be their own private property; they were to be like hired troops, receiving pay for keeping guard from those who were protected by them--the pay was to be no more than would suffice for men of simple life; and they were to spend in common, and to live together in the continual practice of virtue, which was to be their sole pursuit.

TIMAEUS: That was also said.

SOCRATES: Neither did we forget the women; of whom we declared, that their natures should be assimilated and brought into harmony with those of the men, and that common pursuits should be assigned to them both in time of war and in their ordinary life.

TIMAEUS: That, again, was as you say.
