The below tweet ruffled a lot of feathers last night. It also provoked some solid discourse. I view both as good things.

I wanted to add a few comments, as I find myself repeating the same points over and over. Maybe this can lead to a second more-focused round of discussion.
First, if you received that tweet to mean I was implying the James Lindsays of the world are more in depth scholars of CRT than its studied proponents, you missed the point entirely. That tweet had nothing to do with scholars of any kind; hence, "mass scale".
I fleshed out what I meant in the immediate response below. Your typical soccer mom in Loudoun County who publically throws their support behind CRT, doesnt even have a surface-level understanding of what they're claiming to support.

"Only a racist would be against Anti-Racism!"

On a mass scale, those opposed to CRT know a hell of a lot more about the doctrine (and, more importantly, its methods in application) than those who claim to support it.
Sounds illogical on its face, but I believe it's true. People like myself who are passionately against it spend a lot of time on it. Most parents in, say, Northern Virginia don't even know what they're supporting.

"Anti-racism"? Of course! Only a racist would be against that.
While they sure claim to be, these aren't serious people. If they are, they're consumed by a show.

It's like watching an orgy of moral righteousness...

So, this went viral today because of Ben Affleck. But that's not what struck me about it...

What did was how god-awfully artificial this woman looks. It looks like something you'd get out of a vending machine! There is no "beauty" in this.

WTF are women doing to themselves?!?
Men aren't attracted to this. And if they are, they're not the men you want.
So much about our present time really could be summed up as "plastic", huh? Everything is a stage; there's such a lack of authenticity.

The byproduct of "anti-racist" ideology is "I hate white people".
I'm going to post this same tweet every day until I see the VCU story covered on a mainstream outlet.

I'm NOT against people getting the vax. I'm NOT calling it a conspiracy. I want everyone to conduct their own analysis/decision. I believe the public presentation (threat & vax) is being distorted.

If me pushing back on this upsets you, honestly, I'd rather you just unfollow me.
Right on fucking cue!… Image

Follow this chronology...

The NYT staff once infamously held a town hall meeting where they openly discussed a desired shift to coverage of racism/white supremacy in America. The goals of manufacturing this narrative were stated plainly.

Here are the receipts from that work:
In August of 2019, one of our nation's top race-hustlers, @nhannahjones, releases The 1619 Project via the NYT. It is presented as an alternative "history" of America. Critical word.

Go back and read the coverage of the project at that time. "Glowing" doesn't do it justice.
In 2020, at the height of the manufactured zombie-like fervor over race in this country, the 1619 Project is awarded a Pulitzer Prize.

It doesn't get more legitimate than that. πŸ†

Across the country, employers are unable to fill lower-level positions. Literally cannot find people willing to work the shifts (or even apply).

Coming off the financial devastation of the past year (due to our gov's complete failure re COVID response), what does this tell you?
And if your answer is that the offered wages are not high enough, you're a truly committed fool.

The case against CRT is easy...

Show me instances of its methods in application that are having a net benefit. I want to talk methods/real life, not academic theory. Because all we see right now are the Kendi-flavored methods being pumped by jack's wealth, and they're heinous.
If somehow the oppressor/victim narrative could be excised from CRT, maybe then it could have a benefit to society.

But then it wouldn't have an engine, would it? πŸ’‘

Perhaps that's because much of America has very little trust in our "experts", institutions and government right now. Combine that with a heinously dishonest media and it's quite easy to see how we've landed here.
"Why would you not trust the experts? You must be a tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist!"

I don't know, maybe things like this...

Our institutions are compromised by ideologues right now. Almost every day we discover evidence of another.

My trust level is zero.

Last I checked, there is a decent amount of American citizens in rather dire financial need right now, no?
If the Republic will only last until Congress figures out it can bribe the citizenship with its own treasury, how quickly does it crumble when Congress begins sending cash to foreign migrants?

We are about to witness a period of tension and distortion in this nation ratcheting up to breaking point-levels in its final chapters, and I'm genuinely not sure how it's going to play out.

Follow me on this...
As those who read my tweets know, I talk frequently about "The Truman Show". My label for a systematic media/cultural apparatus built by the left which appears to now have the ability to program our populace at will.

See evidence of this here. πŸ‘‡πŸ§΅

For the purpose of this thread, I'm focusing on two specific aspects of this programming.

1) What I believe is an intentional overinflation of the COVID threat, combined with an attempt to conceal contradictory truths

2) Total infatuation with stirring up racial animosity

Remember when there was this intense vaccine campaign targeting the black community to the point it was awkward?

Behold the comments below this tweet.

It is bone chilling to me how easily our populace can be programmed right now; seemingly, in any direction they want.

Reject this nonsense at every instance. Further language manipulation to advance goals. In this case, that goal is to change the definition so that only white people can be called "racist". Isn't that convenient! πŸ™ƒ

The only proper response to this garbage is "piss off!".

You are the very embodiment of overt racism, @marclamonthill. That you would push this take out after his presser is just disgusting. But it's not even 1% surprising.

See, race hustlers and grifters like you don't want racial animosity to lessen... because it butters your bread.
When you identify race-hustling for what it really is, a multi-BILLION dollar COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY, one that has made people like @marclamonthill and @DrIbram and @RobinDiAngelo and @rolandsmartin and @TalbertSwan very very wealthy, everything else will start to make more sense.
These divisive clowns dont want to improve racial relations in this country. Racial hatred signs their pay checks. Fact.

They are true charlatans; scumbags who willfully assist in tearing our social fabric apart to further their agenda, STRENGTHEN THEIR POWER, and make bank.

As their CRT castle begins to crumble, the zealots become isolated, panicked, and lash out. If you know anything of Angel, you'll recognize how asinine the allegations are in this thread.

But this is the M.O. of the CRT cultists: acquiesce or be painted a bigot.

Piss off, Doc!
The bizarre thing is, Mansa was another person, just like Rod Graham, that I noticed EVERYONE kept soft gloves on around. I'm new to these woods, so I never quite figured out why that was. Both Mansa and Rod can (and do) say batshit crazy accusatory stuff all the time, yet...

Perfectly stated.

The vast majority of boogeymen are fictional creations, but perhaps none is more absurd than this "far-right" dire threat to our nation that Left Media bullhorns about 24/7.

Its complete nonsense; total fabrication. Yet half of America gleefully subscribes.
It serves goals, of course. Retention of power; no more complex than that.

If public sentiment can be made that the right in this country (notice "far" was dropped off there) are evil and a threat to the nation, then who becomes the good guys? πŸ’‘
So The Truman Show is on overdrive painting this exact picture. I'd expect sheep to fall for this ruse, but what has really struck me is how many minds on this platform who I really admire and respect have succumbed to the fantasy as well. Just yesterday...

Such an important topic. Team Apocolypse went ballistic about college sports being played, assuring us it would bring widespread carnage. Fought hard to cancel it.

It didn't. At all. It was a tremendous success.

So, what are the repercussions of all the bullshit fear porn then?
Because you can apply this exact same analysis to states lifting lockdowns/mask mandates, restaurants/bars opening, beaches opening, spring break (now x2!), memorial day, Trump rallies, the Superbowl, Mardi Gras, Sturgis rally, Holiday gatherings, etc etc etc...
It's the SAME EXACT pattern every time. Pump a shit ton of apocalyptic fear to scare citizens into acquiescence, then when the promised carnage never comes to be, the same folks just move on, don't even acknowledge it, face zero repercussions, then go pumping massive fear again.

Americans en masse are downright lusting for the COVID vaccine. Both re getting it themselves, as well as this foaming-at-the-mouth fervor of wanting everyone else to get it too.

It's perhaps the creepiest thing I've witnessed in my life. The scope of it is dumbfounding.
