Social Justice™ Now Claims Waking Up
Early Is White Supremacy

Original Article

What even is satire anymore? At some point, reality will become so absurd that it will render satire an anachronistic relic of the before-times, when some semblance of societal sanity made satire possible. We may have already crossed that Rubicon. Exhibit A is the argument that waking up early is actually White Supremacy™. Personally, I don’t spend much time on Medium these days since the platform kicked me off for either “COVID misinformation” or “transphobia” (I honestly don’t remember which anymore, but I got warnings for both of those things before they finally suspended my account permanently). However, this little ditty came my way recently from Anthony Bernardi,

Would somebody compile the entire list of passive "white supremacy" behaviors, such as punctuality and relying on the process of scientific method, THEN find the country that practices all those behaviors the LEAST and then do a poll of how many people would be willing to move to that country?

If waking up early is actually White Supremacy™, the The Big Guy certainly is NOT a WS. In fact, because he quits work (what ever KJP's definition of work is) and goes beddy-by before sunset, he's doubly non-WS and that's a good thing because we don't want a WS president.

The reason white people get up early is because they have a real job to go to. The reason colored people sleep till 2 pm is because they were out selling crack til 6 am. If only they had learned to read then maybe they could figure out how to get a photo ID and just maybe give up their crack selling ways and get a real job like the white folks. Now that would be social justice.

The late, GREAT Rush Limbaugh contantly reminded U.W, that "WORDS MEAN THINGS"-- They mean what they have ALWAYS meant. This is just another way of people trying to pervert the lexicon of words by substitution OTHER words to take a very strained attempt to increase antonyms into synonyms in the Thesaurus of our daily lives. EVERYTHING worthy must be tagges as "racist", bigoted, or against climate change! ANYTHING that goes against their efforts to change the clear meanings of words or definitions authomatically makes you a 'denier' of their efforts and so you should be punished for DARING to go against whatever INSANITY the propose as to be the "new normal" Quit going along with these stupid games and it will die on its own. People who act up to get attention fade away when we IGNORE them. Fight the temptation to 'correct' their thinking, because to do so lends them ATTENTION to continue.

So is reading, writing and speaking correct English. The ability to balance a checkbook and understanding the concept of 2 + 2 = 4, not having children at 14 (and keep having them), not running around with people who drink too much, do and or sell drugs, carry guns and shoot people, stealing other people's possessions and destroying property, and on and on. Yeah, I guess it is easier sleeping late and letting the government be your sugar daddy.

I'm usually automatically awake at 4am, sometimes a little earlier. This morning I slept late and wasn't up till almost 4:30. I value the quiet, pre-dawn hours - stargazing on clear mornings, reading,... Saw a fat, half-purple hair, tatted, pierced slob of a young girl at Wal-Mart this morning. Her ill fitting T-Shirt was captioned, "I can't even think straight!". I resisted commenting that I liked her shirt with it's appropriate message.

FTA: "By putting people of color in competition with one another, the myth distracts us from striving together toward liberation for all." To strive IS to compete, to make an extraordinary effort. How is societal admiration for folks being on time as scheduled, early or late, a "distraction" for anyone? People of all colors do it every day whether they feel like it or not. It goes along with having integrity and seeing oneself as capable and deserving of achieving success. The quoted author is berating folks for showing up as scheduled, as if they're responding to their supposed "oppressors" rather than choosing to do what generally works best for families of all persuasions.

LOL! I remember waiting for a 3:15 doctor's appointment. I came early and sat waiting my turn. An African student came in around 3:20 and insisted on being seen ahead of me. The receptionist told the young man that his appointment was for 1:15 and that he missed it. He argued that, yes he missed 1:15 but that changed the whole wait list so he should be seen ahead of anyone else. The receptionist held her ground. Crazy.

RE#3 Thats easy. If your white and do it, then you're a white supremacist. If blacks also do it, its cultural misappropriation. Everything that a white person does, says or thinks is racist and white supremacist. If a person of color agrees in anyway with a white conservative, that person then becomes the face of white supremacy. I've been walking this planet for 60+ years, and have heard the phrase "white supremacy" more in the past 4 years than in the previous 50+.

Yes #20 I first heard the term from my grandpa who I was told by my grandma hated being late and a stickler for time. Anyway, for one summer picnic my favorite Aunt his youngest daughter was running late (she had the potato salad grandpa liked) with her husband and my cousins. He remarked that someone should tell her not to run on CP time. Everyone laughed and when it was explained to me and my brothers and sister we laughed too. Those were the days back in the 80s.

Bud Light and its parent company Anheuser-Busch are sponsoring at least three different upcoming Pride events despite backlash over the partnership with Dylan Mulvaney, a social media influencer who identifies as transgender. Bud Light is listed as a sponsor on the Cincinnati Pride Parade website. Planned Parenthood and the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, which medically transitions minors, are both also listed. Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, where Anheuser-Busch is headquartered, the company is listed as the presenting sponsor of the St. Louis Pride Parade. A sponsorship packet explains that there are only four “presenting sponsor” slots available. The “Rainbow” sponsorship tier, located below the “presenting sponsor” tier, requires entities to pay $25,000.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to announce his 2024 candidacy tonight, coming on the heels of a new immigration enforcement measure that has some illegals leaving Florida. We must secure the border and deport people who shouldn’t be here. Joe Biden and the Democrats think otherwise, creating a humanitarian crisis at the southern border. It’s an invasion. And with Democrats occupying the White House, Republican governors are our best hope to curb the flow of illegal immigration until the next election. On July 1, new measures in the Sunshine State will greatly degrade the ability of illegal aliens to move and live among us freely.

While the push has been on in woke Democratic circles to shove Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) out the door before her last term in office is over, there has also been a coordinated effort among Feinstein’s “allies” to make sure she doesn’t. The reasons are obvious but nevertheless intriguing even to those not predisposed to obsessing over the finer points of behind-the-scenes political machinations. The most vocal proponent on the “Feinstein must retire” side has been Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.), who is rumored to be considering a future run for president but who for now seems content with being the co-chair for Rep. Barbara Lee’s (D-Calif.) 2024 Senate run.

On Tuesday, a U-Haul crashed into a barricade outside the White House grounds. Immediately, speculation that the driver was a “white supremacist” after a Nazi flag was allegedly pulled from the wreck. In fact, the flag was spread out and displayed for reporters by the FBI agents on the scene. Why did they do that? Someone will have to ask them, but the narrative became a lot more complicated after the driver was identified as Sai Varshith Kandula. Needless to say, he didn’t exactly fit the “white supremacist” profile. Now, in a move that is sure to spark much speculation, the DOJ has suddenly downgraded the charges involved.

Nevertheless, even as outlets like the far-left Variety finally admit to this problem, do not expect anyone to admit to the real reasons. “Hollywood Grapples With Loss of Young Star Power,” reads the headline. The story explains the problem this way… “The hottest package at this year’s Cannes Film Festival stars a 76-year old action star and is a reboot of a movie that first dazzled moviegoers in 1993.” Variety is talking about Sylvester Stallone and his hit movie Cliffhanger. Yep, Cliffhanger 2 is the biggest deal at a prestigious worldwide film festival:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is reportedly considering appointing Oprah Winfrey to the Senate should Dianne Feinstein retire early. Newsom has promised to appoint a black woman to the seat, and Oprah is one among a list of contenders he's considering, according to the Associated Press. Appointing Winfrey would spare Newsom from tipping the scales in California's contentious primary race in 2024. In that case, the celebrity talk show host would serve as a place holder who would not pursue the seat for a full six-year term. Newsom's office could not be reached for comment on the matter.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., slammed the Supreme Court's ruling Thursday that limited the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate bodies of water, calling it a "MAGA" court even though the decision was 9-0. On Thursday, the high court issued an opinion that narrowed the EPA's broad definition of Waters of the United States (WOTUS). The court said the federal government must define WOTUS as a water source with a "continuous surface connection" to major bodies of water. The decision upended an attempt by the Biden administration to regulate wetlands, lakes, ponds, streams and other "relatively permanent" waterways, which had relied on a broad reading of the EPA's authority

Target loses $9B in week following boycott

Posted by Beardo 5/25/2023 1:42:33 PM Post Reply
Target has lost $9 billion in market value since angry social media users called for a boycott of the Minneapolis-based retailer over its rollout of the “PRIDE” collection featuring LGBTQ-friendly clothing for children. A week ago Wednesday before the controversy erupted, Target’s stock closed at $160.96 a share, giving the big-box chain a market capitalization of $74.3 billion. As of early trading on Thursday, however, shares of the company were trading off 1% at $141.76 — capping a weeklong tumble that has shrunk the “cheap chic” discount retailer’s value to $65.3 billion. That amounts to a 12% drop that has shaved a whopping $9 billion off the company’s market capitalization.

Byron Donalds, R-Fla., blasted "The View" co-host Joy Behar on Tuesday after she claimed Scott "doesn't get" racism while comparing him to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. "He’s one of these guys, like Clarence Thomas, Black Republican, who believes in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, rather than understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country and other minorities. He doesn’t get it. Neither does Clarence. That’s why they’re Republicans," she said Tuesday during "The View."
