Time to Cancel the Cancel Culture

2021 March 5

THAT'S RACIST ! - that's racist boy | Meme Generator

What’s racissst? Anything the left wants to cancel out, suppress or demonize.

The latest is Dr. Seuss. It was just a few years ago that then-President Barack Obama praised Dr. Seuss:

“The works of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to us as Dr. Seuss, have sparked a love for reading in generations of students. His whimsical wordplay and curious characters inspire children to dream big,” Mast wrote, tagging the former president.

The quote comes from Obama’s 2015 Read Across America Day proclamation.

Obama offered similar praise in his 2014 proclamation, saying: “Countless Americans can recall his books as their first step into the lands of letters and wordplay. With creatures, contraptions, and vibrant characters, they have led generations of happy travelers through voyages of the imagination.”

Suddenly the left has branded Dr. Seuss as racist because of some innocent drawings that are now deemed as offensive by people on the left.

If you look at the cancel culture, you’ll soon discover the outrage comes primarily from woke white liberals rather than minorities. A few examples just from the sports world:

  • About 25 years ago, the NCAA was “on the warpath” because some colleges and universities used Indian tribes as mascots. In Michigan this affected two Division I universities – the Eastern Michigan Hurons and the Central Michigan Chippewas. The NCAA attempted to force both universities to drop the nicknames. Both tribes told the universities and the NCAA that they considered it an honor to have major universities name the athletic programs after them. Eastern caved like a house of cards and changed its nickname to the Eagles – the most common nickname in college sports. This change came over the objection of tribe elders and alumni. After all, who is the most sensible group to realize there’s racism afoot – woke, white liberal college professors and administrators or the elders of the Huron tribe? Chippewa elders travelled with university officials to Indianapolis to plead the case for Central keeping the tribe’s nickname and were successful. Without Central students, who would the tribe have waiting of tables and handling other menial jobs? My daughter worked at a junior version of Dave and Buster’s, taking care of children at Soaring Eagle while the tribe was “scalping” their parents in the casino.
  • College teams couldn’t change their nicknames quickly enough. Marquette University went from the Warriors to the – you guessed it – Golden Eagles. Why not just eliminate any hint on Native American culture as there have been warriors for thousands of years.
  • In 1915 the Cleveland American League team players hated the team’s nickname – the Spiders. They thought it was creepy. What did they do? They renamed the team in honor of the player who was most popular with team mates and fans –  Louis Sockalexis, a member of the Penobscot tribe. Stupid Sockalexis and his equally-dumb team mates thought they were honoring the player they liked best. Any of today’s woke white liberals will tell you that they were clearly being racissst.
  • After a decade of attacks the Washington NFL franchise finally capitulated to the woke mob and dropped the nickname Redskins. The protest was – as can be expected – led by woke white liberals with a smidgen (as Barack would say) of Native American grifters looking to cash in. There are high schools on Native American reservations that use the Redskins moniker. To make amends for its past sins of bigotry, the Washington NFL franchise just announced it is dropping its cheerleading squad and replacing it with a coed dance troupe (girls + gays). Why not paint a 10′ x 10′ piece of plywood prior to the game and let fans watch it dry during halftime? That would be more exciting and less nauseating.
  • Finally, the Atlanta Hawks have been heavily criticized for firing Lloyd Pierce, a black coach, after a disappointing 14-20 start. In two plus seasons as the Hawks head coach, Pierce had a 63-120 record. in addition, his relationship with Hawks players was not a good one. A coach has one of the worst records in the league after two years and is disliked by his team gets fired – it’s not unusual and hardly news. But, with Lloyd Pierce, it was different – he is an extreme-left Democrat who became very involved in the Georgia presidential election and the senate run-off so to woke NBA coaches and an even more woke sports media love him. They were in a state of panic because he got canned – not because he was a candidate for getting fired for being a lousy coach, but because they believe he helped move the country to the left.  Two NBA coaches – Greg Popovich and Stan Van Gundy – are widely recognized as world-class assholes, but the Houston Rockets coach – also head of the NBA coaches association – had someone hold his 32 oz. beer. NBCA President Rick Carlisle mentioned his political work, saying, “Georgia, in very large part because of Lloyd’s work and commitment, went from being a traditional Republican state to a Democratic state … which has massively changed the landscape of our country.” Perhaps if Pierce spent more time working on coaching skills and less on changing the landscape of the country, he wouldn’t have been such an abysmal failure.

To paraphrase Clay Travis people attend sporting events for relaxation. 75%-85% of sports fans aren’t woke. They don’t want partisan politics shoved down their throats when they shell out $300-$400 or more to take the family to a major league game. Yet, the sports media is likely more woke and even farther left than the political media and teams are becoming woke.

    Since Pierce was fired the Hawks are 2-0. Rick Carlisle’s Houston Rockets are 11-23 and have lost their last 10 straight games. Perhaps Carlisle is making the case that he shouldn’t get fired because he’s a woke white liberal.

    Since my son was a waiter/bartender at Outback throughout college, I’d like to weigh in on this:

    1. Wait staff and bartenders prefer tipping as they can under-report earnings and the IRS cannot disprove it.

    2. Tipping is racist in that black people are notoriously poor tippers. Everyone – including black waitstaff – hoped black customers weren’t seated in their section. Brendan said that some black customers don’t tip at all and others would will leave a 50 cent tip for six diners and a $100 tab We’re talking Outback, not Denny’s. The larger the percentage of black customers, the lower the tip percentage. So, the average tip for black employees would be lower. It’s not rocket science.

    bc3b – you can weigh in on this.

    If I recall correctly, those that work as waiters/waitresses ARE NOT paid minimum wage to begin with, but much less. The system is designed, that you the customer pay it through tips.

    Depending on where we eat, I start with a 10% base and go up or down based on service. Some people will tell you that you need to tip 15% to 20%. Me, I like to reward good service, not bad.

    Percentage wise, I have given more at a place like Bob Evans vs Outback.

    Yeah, running a bank is tricky. Gab might find it “challenging”, still I would definitely consider having a small-ish account there.

    My kid was in a Cross Country meet today. She’s just a beginner. It was through her high school. In CA we are just now starting up athletics in the schools again. There will be 3 sport seasons. Each season will feature a different set of sports.
    First season included XC and lasts 2 months, Feb and March. A bye next Saturday then the final meet. The season will wrap up Mar 26th I think. Then season 2 with a different set of sports will commence.

    CA is super slow restarting, a bunch of cowardly neighbors, to be honest. Though stupid and venal politicians is another factor. I volunteered for the meet today. Part of the course was along the sidewalk in front of the school, I was stationed there. I saw many, many, many people turn their heads as they drove by. I could see smiles and I imagine they felt the same emotion as me: “OMG, Things are starting back up again! Life arising in the spring.”

    (Cross country) “how did she place!”

    First year on the team, I think she came in one from the last on her team. There were 6 or 7 teams.
    So, yeah, she is in a “beat your personal best” mode for a while.
    Every time I hear “one from the last” I think of the witty insult (pick a category to replace XYZ below)–
    “You might not be the worst at XYZ in this town but you better hope he doesn’t move away”

    “I have noticed a number of restaurants that appear to be permanently closed.”
    A few months ago I read that 1 out 6 US restaurants will never re-open but in San Francisco the number is 50%. Which I believe is true, based on our search after hiking around the Land’s End district in December. We drove to what I think is called the ChinaTown II area on Geary and found precisely zero restaurants open.

    Meanwhile … it could never happen here. Glad the Bolivar is still good for something: riding the bus in this case.
    “Venezuela said it will introduce new large-denomination bolivar notes as hyperinflation renders most bills worthless, forcing citizens to turn to the U.S. dollar for everyday transactions.

    The country’s central bank posted a statement on its website Friday saying it would begin circulating the new 200,000, 500,000 and 1,000,000 bills to “fulfill the current economy’s requirements” without providing further details. The 1,000,000 note — the largest in the nation’s history — is worth only $0.53 cents.

    As Venezuela’s economy shrank for a seventh straight year in 2020, the government turned a blind eye to a growing number of dollar transactions, kick-started by rolling power outages that prevented credit and debit card purchases and fostered the use of cash. About 66% of transactions across the country are estimated to be made in foreign currency, according to Ecoanalitica.

    While the dollar has gained ground, Venezuelans continue to rely on bolivar bills for public transportation and to purchase subsidized fuel.”

    Two more women came forward this weekend and accused embattled New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate behavior.
    —-

    “Former press aide Karen Hinton said Andrew Cuomo repeatedly hugged her and made her feel uncomfortable.

    The married Hinton said in 2000, Cuomo embraced her in a dimly lit hotel so she pulled away and he aggressively pulled her back for another embrace.”

    20 years ago he hugged me… sexual harassment?? I can’t stand the guy but give me a break.

    “The other accuser, Ana Liss, worked for Cuomo from 2013-2015 and said he would ask her if she had a boyfriend and would kiss her hand.”

    more weird esp give time-frame (increased sensitivity every damn thing), but this also strikes me as also going nowhere. Should be fun to see how many more come out, seems they all wait for the weekend to do so, or to be reported on.

Then again I’m biased as former exchange guy all the way from pre 4.0 to 2010 – on the daily. That said the product while improving from recovery and resiliency standpoints post 2003, and easier to “manage” automation wise from 2007+ went significantly down hill in regards to code quality at RTM, including patches, and added seemingly unnecessary complications (which they’d later just remove in follow on versions). But frankly that was true of just about all software they were starting to put out past the ~2006 time frame (getting progressively worse with time), everything was rushed to RTM with the we’ll fix and improve it later attitude. Call me nuts, but I long for the days of slower release cycles and ‘service packs’ that were pretty will tested, and focused 85% on fixes and refinement and not constant changes and additions of half baked, half tested, new functionality…. but of course that doesn’t generate the consistent revenue stream the picks on wall street demand.

    But they may only be shifting the focus away from the murder of thousands of elderly.
    In which case, he’s getting off lightly.

    PowerLine notes a report saying that one of Cuomo’s minions was heard saying she was directed to take the Sensitivity Training for him. Which is probably a no-no if it happened. “But at this point, what difference does it make?”

    Gut says the whole thing is coordinated. Does he deserve to fry over the nursing home deaths? You bet. My mind that is good enough to fry him. The sexual harassment claims are over the top, but considering that this is just templated like the Kavanaugh attack I say let it roll. Maybe the Left will come to understand the same tool that can be used against your enemies can be used against you.

    There are certain industries (Fin, Health) were one is legally obligated to have chain of custody management of IP assets, including email. That said we conducted two studies while at VZ, 2000 & 2007 and the math said go to the cloud. Last analysis I did was 2018 for a company and it was a mixed choice. But they only had 300 accounts on the server.

    My other observation is, what is the difference from what Coumo has done vs Biden? Quite honestly I don’t see much of a difference.

    Also, who is Tara Reade? People keep mentioning her.

    On another topic, this was fwd’ed to me as being posted on AR15 by a knowledgeable guy.
    Not sure what a DC is though.
    “It’s starting to trickle into the mainstream news, but the global shipping environment is a dumpster fire.

    No empty shipping containers in Asia, rates triple the normal levels, and 30+ vessels with hundreds of thousands of containers stuck outside the port of Long Beach.

    Not to mention overflowing DCs, a rail system that is a joke, and not enough truckers or trucks.”

    JimNorCal –

    Glad to see your daughter is active. It’s easy for kids to get lost in high school, especially large high schools.

    Just thinking about her doing all that running tired me out. Think I’ll take a nap.

    The woman who accused Joe Biden of sexual miusconduct in the mid-1990s. She was extremely hot 25 years ago.

    With the US shutdown for nearly year:

    * Longshoremen were not classified as essential personnel.
    * US goods headed to Asia have not been produced in normal quantities.
    * Ships are having to dead head with empty containers.

    I admit to a bit of astonishment that Powell is so far letting rates rise. It cannot end well. Is he that incompetent or is he a courageous visionary? “Time will tell”.

    For now, Powell is denying that all the money printing last year (actually, since 2008) is creating an inflation risk and the market will keep the rates low. However, the reality is the Fed is boxed into a damned if you do, damned if don’t situation. Does the Fed letthe market decide and allow the rates to rise? This would quickly kill the stock market, kill the government’s ability to borrow and service debt, and ultimately drags the economy into a redux of 1970’s stagflation at best or severe deflation at worse. Or, does the Fed push the dollar presses into overdrive and begin purchasing 10 and 30 year Treasury notes to keep rates at their current levels? This path ultimately weakens, if not kills, the dollar through inflation and risks hyperinflation, but this would happen much more slowly so its probably the preferred path by the Fed.

    Personally, I think some new creative strategy we can’t yet imagine will be employed to keep the ball rolling for a few years longer. For instance, the government could cancel the $7 trillion balance sheet held by the Fed and instantly reduce the $28 trillion debt to $21 trillion and rewind the debt clock back to 2016 levels. Of course, it would take quite a song-and-dance to convince other bondholders their bonds are safe from government cancellation.

    I saw a post on Parler that says HR8, the beginning of national gun registration, is coming up for a vote this week?
    Seems like there would have been more news. Maybe I missed the memo though.
    Patterned after the national sex offender database, I wonder.

    That presumes that the USG does not want to issue another TBill sale ever again AND see USD lose reserve currency status within days. Followed by,

    ” Does he deserve to fry over the nursing home deaths? You bet. My mind that is good enough to fry him. The sexual harassment claims are over the top, but considering that this is just templated like the Kavanaugh attack I say let it roll. ”

    Yeah that’s what I meant by saying I don’t mind it as much because he should be getting shit on for 100 other things most prevalent the nursing home stuff, so if this is what does it so be it after all it’s just an attempt to hold him to the relatively insane standards his side as pushed for all this crap anyway.

    The media is 100% compliant with the sham “presidency” of Biden, and the GOP is going along with only a couple exceptions

    The “equality ” Bill, Covid “relief “, voting Bill and Gun Registration Bill are intended to seal the deal for the Dems. Shortly after that they will dump Biden.

    SolarWinds just keeps getting worse: New strain of malware found infecting victims reg.cx/3YQZ

    https://mobile.twitter.com/TheRegister/status/1368902514620383232
    https://www.theregister.com/2021/03/08/in_brief_security/
    The malware strain, identified as SUNSHUTTLE by boffins at security shop FireEye, is a backdoor attack written in Go which uses HTTPS to communicate with a command-and-control server for data exfiltration, adding new code as needed. Someone based in the US uploaded the malware to a public malware repository in August last year, well before the attack.

    Brandon Wales, acting director of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, warned this week it could take 18 months to clean up this mess, and that’s looking increasingly likely.

    From the summary–
    In March and April 2020, mental health claim lines for young people aged 13-18
    approximately doubled as a percentage of all medical claim lines by comparison to the same months in
    2019, while medical claim lines decreased by approximately half. The pattern of increased mental health
    claim lines and decreased medical claim lines continued through November 2020, though not to as great
    an extent.

    Breitbart:
    The Democrat-controlled House Veterans’ Affairs Committee announced an investigation Friday into the recruitment of military veterans by “extremist groups,” explicitly naming the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, and Three Percenters.

    Committee Chairman Mark Takano (D-CA) said in a statement:

    “Since last fall, our Committee has been working to understand who groups such as the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, and others are, where they fit into the broader landscape of extremist and hate groups, and why they specifically seek to recruit veterans into their ranks.”

    In addition, the committee’s Twitter account announced the investigation with a graphic that included logos from the three aforementioned groups.
