Idiocracy in Power: America, 2018

Donald Trump Is an Idiot, as in Not Real Smart

Headline: Trump’s former Wharton professor: “Donald Trump Was the Dumbest Goddamn Student I Ever Had.

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.” I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddamn student I ever had.”

Another biographer, Gwenda Blair, wrote in 2001 that Trump was admitted to Wharton on a special favor from a “friendly” admissions officer.

Idiocracy in Power

We talk about how Trump is illiterate,  and in fact he is: Trump literally cannot read or only reads at a 4th Grade level. But this illiteracy is what his base wanted, right? They hate technocrats and experts, people who read, weigh facts, and make proposals based on evidence, preferring lowbrow, shoot-from-the-hip, unreflective living. Trump is their anti-intellectual hero, exactly what they voted for. This is what happens when an entire political party disdains education, intellect, learning, scholarship, etc. We are on the road to Idiocracy. From Dan Quayle to George W. Bush to Sarah Palin and now Trump, it’s been a free fall decline on a rollercoaster of fashionable and comfortable stupidity.

Heaven help us.

New Yorkers on Trump: They Knew Him Too Well

Actual quotes from New Yorkers:

  • Nobody actually liked Donald Trump. Even then. He was obnoxious, if colorful. My (Old School Conservative, WWII vet) junior high teachers (I went to school in a fairly conservative area) cited Donald as evidence of crass 1980’s materialism and of how far this “younger generation” of 80’s yuppies had strayed from their generation’s principals of decency. Donald Trump was always a predictable turd…

  • I am/was a yuppie, and I and my yuppie NYC buddies all loathed Trump, not only because of his crassness but because we knew that he was a lying grifter and an unmeritorious opportunist.

US Foreign Policy Has Always Been Far More Rightwing Than US Domestic Policy

Jason Y writes: Possibly the Democrats in the US need the US NAM’s for votes, but they don’t need NAM’s in other countries.

US foreign policy has always been far more reactionary than US domestic policy. This contrast is especially stark when looking at the Democratic Party.

The Cold War made this so much worse. The Republicans said any leader who liked labor unions or raised the minimum wage was a Soviet-supporting Communist who needed to be killed or removed via a coup. And many were killed and especially removed via coups.

At the same time, the Republicans spent most of the Cold War screaming at the Democrats for being Communists or at the very least Communist sympathizers or fellow travelers. The Democrats ran scared all through the Cold War, always terrified of being called “soft on Communism.” So they tried to out-Cold War the Republicans and bent to try to out-hate the USSR.

Hence, the Democrats went along with Jonathan Foster Dulles reactionary Containment Project he initiated in the late 1940’s. Foster Dulles was a very rich man who came from old East Coast money. He was also a very rightwing government official. US foreign policy followed Dulles dictum from the 1940’s on, so our foreign policy was molded on a template created by a reactionary from the ruling class.

When Reagan came in, he updated Containment with actual Rollback, and we got Contras, wars in Mozambique and Angola, etc. The Reaganites kept accusing the Democrats of being soft on Communism, and once again, the Democrats ran scared. The horrific Central American projects of the 1980’s, where the US government set up and helped run rightwing death squads that raged across the land, murdering tens of thousands of civilians, was mostly run by some of the most liberal men in Congress, especially the shameful super-liberal Alan Cranston of California and Chris Dodd, the very liberal Connecticut “Senator from Aetna.”

Keep in mind that US foreign policy was reactionary even before the Cold War.

FDR, one of our finest presidents, was a reactionary on foreign policy. He supported the murderous dictator Somoza in Nicaragua, and he made the famous comment, “Somoza may be a bastard, but he’s our bastard.”

Liberal President Woodrow Wilson was not only a reactionary and a proto-humanitarian bomber, but he was also a very racist man domestically. In modern terms, Wilson would be a flat out White Supremacist out of American Renaissance.

The liberal reformer Teddy Roosevelt continued the Monroe Doctrine that declared all of Latin America to be effectively colonies of the US. His famous statement, “Walk softly but carry a big stick,” referred to his reactionary bullying, aggression and immiseration towards our quasi-colonies in Latin America.

The Problem with the Anti-Heels Movement for the Berlin Film Festival

In reference to this piece:

Archie Leach says: I don’t see anything wrong with this.

Most women I know actually hate wearing high heels and only wear them on occasions that “require” them wearing them.

Otherwise, at least the women I know, are like anyone else and wear shoes that are most comfortable.

First of all, I would like to say that I like Archie and I am proud that he is one of our commenters. This response is not meant to attack him. My response follows:

Do you have any idea how much feminists hate high heels? They hate high heels, they hate sexy outfits, a lot of them even hate makeup.

They are furious at the whole idea that women should dress up to please men. That’s what they ate.

I have talked to some women, older women, who were actually proud to say that they still wear heels in their 40’s and 50’s. That’s because these are women who like being sexy for men. Feminists consider women like this to be brainwashed.

Do you see the part where she says she wants women to avoid “the patriarchal gaze?” Do you know what that means? It’s feminist talk. Feminists go on and on about “the male gaze.” As soon as girls start looking like women as teenagers, they start being subjected to this horrible male gaze, which is apparently devastating to these fragile perma-virgin perma-victims. Feminists hate the fact that we look at women. They even consider it a form of sexual harassment, and some of the idiot #metoo charges are against men are against men who looked at women. We are not supposed to look at them at all, or if we do, we are supposedly to look at them in a nonsexual way, which is impossible for any real men who’s not dead or gay.

Next time a woman points to her face and says, “My face is up here” (a reference to the fact that you are looking at her tits like all real men do), respond, “If you don’t want me looking at your tits, baby, why don’t you quit walking around with your tits hanging out?” Because that’s what idiot modern Western feminist women do. They walk around with their tits hanging out and their cleavage showing, and then they get furious because we are looking at your tits like any healthy male mammal would. Feminism has ruined Western women and it’s made them all insane to boot.

I do agree though that women attending these festivals should not be pressured into wearing uncomfortable tight gowns and heels, and should not be seens as uptight prudes if they refuse to do so. That’s just wrong. Women attending these festivals can wear whatever they want. That’s fine with me.

Do you realize that feminists actually want to ban high heels from certain venues? I shit you not.

Dead Kids for Freedom

The latest outrage, as combat fatigue sets in across a battle-weary America.

We ought to start a new political group with just that name. I suppose dead kids are a small price to pay to live in a free society.

So far this year, there has been nearly one school shooting every two days in these broken, blighted, benighted, and benumbed United States.

That sentence right there is completely insane. It sounds like something out of a science fiction novel. This shows that reality here in America in the current year is so extreme and bizarre that it is almost surreal or something out of fiction. It’s as if our day to day lives have turned into something you see in a theater. What is real and what is fiction (or speculative fiction!) anymore? It’s as if we are living in a dream, and not a sweet one either. Maybe it’s time to dig out our copies of Society of the Spectacle and reread them.

For all of you lunatics out there who think that this bad weirdness is normal in any rational world, I ask you: Why is it that this madness occurs only here in the US and nowhere else in the world? If it’s part of the human condition to shoot up schools every couple of days, shouldn’t it be happening everywhere?

Guns don’t kill people. High schools kill people!

America Has Never Been a Democracy, Nor Was It Ever Intended to Be One

Another wonderful comment by the great Francis Miville!

There is a problem with American identity: its founding mythology, its Constitution which is supposed to be the result of an Enlightenment-Inspired humanistic democratic republican revolution against a colonial empire. This can be understandable in as much as most scholars tend not to know too much was the real Enlightenment movement was: a movement of the filthy rich of their times who wanted first and foremost to do away with the various particular and limited rights many rather modest or middle-rank people had inherited from the Christian Middle Ages on a caste-basis most of the times.

American-style slavery was the epitome of the ideals of Enlightenment as applied to political economy, and if you care to have a look, you will see that the bulk of the clientele of those ideologues were the slaving classes on both sides of the Atlantic. But the problem now is that the truth about 18th-century Enlightenment cannot be sold due to popular hope worldwide.

Another big identification problem stems from the very word “democracy”: in ancient Greek, it did not mean at all the modern ideal (not the reality) of a government held in check by the commoners’ right to depose tyrants and vote down laws felt as abusive, it never meant government of the people by the people for the people, it meant government by a single governing party (dêmos, from verb daiomai, I divide, I take apart, like the Latinate word party which is related to the very partire meaning taking apart) Eastern European style (minus any form of social ideal however mendacious) or by a closed-access class, and moreover it meant that this ruling party or class had or felt no responsibility towards greater good but cared for their group interests only as a gated community is managed.

It was not different from the modern concept of oligarchy. The ancient concept of oligarchy was rather government by a team so small that everybody knew who did what and who ordered what: as soon as the elite, while comprising no more than 1 or 2%, was just big enough for the power it exerted to be anonymous and without any real possibility of influence from any single individual within it, it was called dêmokratia, and especially when the real leaders preferred to keep their identity secret thanks to the anonymous crowd they manipulated at will, which was the case in Athens, whose symbol of the owl meant that very ideal of secrecy and shady dealings.

When such a ruling class or body felt responsibilities towards the greater good, the regime was no longer called a democracy but a timocracy (government according to honor fostered by personal contribution to the greater good): timocracy was a government of takers and givers, a democracy of takers only, and if you check on ancient Athenian mentality, it considered any form of productive work (poiesis), even the production of poems, a dishonor (another gross insult was demiurge, which meant nothing more than a productive artisan at the city’s disposal).

Greek had a word to denote the right of the commoners to vote down tyrants and bad laws, it was called laodicea (the common people judging), but the city that used this system existed in Phrygia only, in Asia Minor, not in Greece proper, who had too high an opinion of themselves as a superior kind over all humans to stoop down to such a regime. In the 18th century most scholars still knew more or less what real Athens was about in the Classical times, a government where the rich and well to do were told by no one they too had duties towards a higher political or moral authority. The partisans of “democracy” just wouldn’t admit to being compelled to practice the same religion as was needed to keep their inferiors in line.

That was the real meaning of “democracy” under Jefferson’s pen. The ideal sold thereafter to the European commoners was meant as a propaganda trick for useful idiots only, exactly like the worst aspects of totalitarian Marxism later on. That is the identity problem I would like to terminate as regards America.

In a certain sense, I want that country to turn officially fascist – that would be actually more in tune with the real Founding Fathers’ will. This country should no longer be declared to owe its existence to the Founding Fathers of the American Revolution, nor even to the Mayflower Pilgrims – neither describe its real essence in the ears of most.

The US should officially declare that it owes its existence as the first White predator political entity on the American continent to the Viking invader Eric the Red. All Americans should idealize the conquering Viking as their ideal ancestor, thanks to whose blood and example the Wild West could be conquered as a prelude to the imperialistic conquest of the whole world.

America did not appear on the map devising a perfect constitution for the human gender; it appeared as a reality of the soil of its continent as an enterprise to genocide all Indians and all other all-too-romantic bums of that kind to make room for slaving plantations furnished with Negroes and Irishmen.

The main difference with Nazi Germany is that Nazi Germany postulated that the Germanic race was the only worthwhile and successful predator in the world and could propagate only through physical breeding. On the other hand, America postulates that the Viking predator, apart from having ideal blood, has even more value as the most perfect example anybody in the world can follow as a model of self-transformation into a monster, though some races like the Viking-descendant Wasps and some Jews are statistically nearer that ideal type than others.

The US should officially declare itself to be the fatherland of all predators of the world, and of all religions having declared war against common humanity. Any delinquent in the world committing vicious acts of predation or betrayal against their community of origin (as the Vikings were for instance, and as the Jews were according the American Protestant ideal of what a Biblical Jew should be) should be considered a de facto American citizen.

LBJ used to say, in order to justify his policy of desegregation and the temporary establishment of his Grand Society, that the real reason for his move was for the elite to be able to roll back America to official racism and segregation. This was badly needed prelude to get the White Trash ready for a future in which they would be prepared to jettison all human rights and accept a dictatorship together with an Indian-style caste society in exchange for their only real dearest right, that of knowing that however hard they have it, Blacks will have it ten times as hard as servants of the lowest of their own servants, as quoth the Bible.

And I think that time has come. Ideally, the future official religion of such a country formed during or after a second Civil War to come as a revenge for the first should be some form of Hinduism, with the Jews being the Brahmins, the Vikings being the Kshatriyas, and the contemporary Indians being the Vaishyas.

More #Metoo Idiocy

Here.

This man used to work Oxfam America. While he was down in Haiti working for Oxfam 20 years ago, he hired prostitutes, no doubt because he wanted to get his rocks off. This is a scandal? Why? Why can’t this guy hire all the whores he wants? How the Hell is that sexual misconduct?

He is also accused of hosting sex parties with prostitutes for entertainment. What’s wrong with that? Why can’t he have any parties he wants to have? What business is it of his employer’s what sort of parties he throws when he’s off work?

More #metoo misandry and Puritanism from sex-hating, man-hating feminist bitches.

Hey bitches! How about if you take your #metoo BS and shove it right up all of your asses?
