GWB Jun 21 2017 at 6:30 am I may be nobody, but I’ve called them Eskimos for half a century. As did my textbooks when I was young. JTC Jun 21 2017 at 11:04 am How ’bout peepsicles? Fuck a bunch of PC, Canuckian or otherwise. Joseph Meyer Jun 21 2017 at 12:37 am The Canadians have declared the word Eskimo offensive, resulting in confusion and mislabeling of ethnic groups. In Alaska they are less fastidious, and the term is in common parlance. WayneM Jun 21 2017 at 8:03 pm Depending on who you talk to, Eskimo is used or reviled. Supposedly, the Inuit and Dené don’t use it but other tribes do so whatever. Like most of these words earmarked for outrage, the politically correct asshats who pretend outrage do so for tactical reasons. Those directly impacted usually could not care less. NotYetInACamp Jun 21 2017 at 1:15 am The freeking American Indians culturally expropriated my ancestors horse borne methods of warfare. We had been fighting on horses and shooting arrows and such many millennium prior to the first modern horse setting hooves on the western hemisphere. I demand damages. If you don’t like Indians, go to Cleveland or Tallahassee. cmblake6 Jun 21 2017 at 1:26 am Again, interesting to say the least. Let’s see where this goes. JohninMd.(Help!?!!) Jun 21 2017 at 2:12 am I just hope the love of her sister will bring Skye all the way “Home”. Time will tell…. JackDeth72 Jun 21 2017 at 5:01 am Still not trusting Skye. idahobob Jun 21 2017 at 9:14 am Agree. Bob John Trauger Jun 21 2017 at 1:03 pm You and me both. I’ve reluctantly come to believe that Skye is being honest in choosing to change. But she only changed because she endured abunch crap and said “This sucks! I’m not taking it anymore.” All lives have suckage. When new-Skye’s life sees some serious excrement hit the rotating blades, when it isn’t easy being her new self, then we’ll see. dknolte Jun 21 2017 at 5:22 am If this continues the way it looks, I will miss Skye antagonizing Zed. … and visa versa. DASTARDLY DAN Jun 21 2017 at 5:54 am Cultural appropriation… We used to call that the ‘melting pot’ Now we have fruit and nut salad Deplorable B Woodman Jun 21 2017 at 10:15 pm Don’t forget the flakes. Swansonic Jun 21 2017 at 11:37 pm I like that analogy! eon Jun 21 2017 at 6:22 am Interestingly, it will be the “#woke” crowd that is hardest hit. After all, they’re the ones who sing the praises of anything and everything “Eastern”, “mystical”, and “primitive” over everything “Western” and “materialistic” and therefore “evil”. So they can forget their white-girl cornrows and their “Asian” restaurants. Not to mention their hijabs. And of course they’ll have to give up peyote and even artisanal beer. And cappuccino, naturally, as coffee came to Europe from East Africa by way of the Ottoman Empire. Bye-bye Starbucks. As for the reverse, the Third World can give back penicillin, the Salk vaccine, quinine, the airplane (no more “national airlines”), nuclear power, and electricity generally. And oh yes, they can say goodbye to flush toilets, as well. There is a bright side from their POV, sort of. Without the Mauser Kar98 and the Avtomat Kalashnikov Obrazets 1947g, they ‘ll have to relearn the correct techniques of the sjambok, the knobkerrie, the longbow and the spear if they want to continue killing each other as their various tribalist cultures demand. They can keep black powder, though, since it was a Chinese invention (about mid-10th Century AD, by all indications). Plus the guillotine, as it is apparently also Ottoman in origin. No tanks, naturally. Speaking of which, let’s talk about the internal combustion engine…. clear ether eon GWB Jun 21 2017 at 6:35 am You forgot the mot important thing of all for the rest of the world, eon: the cell phone. Totally invented by westerners. Back to runners, heliographs and drums, it is. eon Jun 21 2017 at 8:57 am True. They can’t even use the telegraph or landline phone; both American inventions. And of course they can kiss the Internet goodbye. There is virtually nothing about the digital computer that wasn’t invented in France, the U.S., UK, or (interestingly enough) Germany between 1700 and 1980. Binary language; Automatic looms, France, early 1700s. (Paper “roll” and wooden “pegs”.) Punch card; Herman Hollerith, U.S. Census Bureau, 1889. (Electrical contacts.) Magnetic tape; BASF, Germany, 1935. Transistor; Shockley, Bardeen, and Brattain, U.S. 1954. “Floppy” disc; IBM, U.S., 1965. Digital computer; Alan Turing, UK, 1941, Conrad Zuse, Germany, 1938. Internet; ARPANet, U.S. Department of Defense, 1977-78. Fun fact; Turing’s computer, Colossus, was designed to reconstruct the plug-wire system of the rotors in the German Enigma cipher machine. Zuse’s digital computer had been built to design those rotors by generating the wiring patterns that guaranteed that each rotor’s wiring was as nearly unique as possible. In other words, the Ultra operation was in reality a battle between two computers. cheers eon Pamela Jun 21 2017 at 1:14 pm After my Dad retired from the Navy he told us about a day of crossed lines. He punched a 4 digit code into the Autovon expecting to talk to someone on the other end about some upcoming naval training exercises. The person on the other end asked “who is this and how did you get this number”. Dad identified himself and was told to hold on. A few minutes later the person on the other end identified himself since he had checked Dad out and found he had the necessary clearances. Seems there was an issue of “crossed lines” and Dad’s call ended up in the basement of the WH in the office of Spooks R US. 30 minutes later that number finally went to the correct department. Ain’t technology grand. Unless mice get into the wiring. Redleg Jun 21 2017 at 10:44 pm I once tried to call Fort Belvoir via AUTOVON and got family quarters in Kwajalein in the Ryuku Islands. Wonderful system. Brasspounder Jun 21 2017 at 6:40 am Great observations, eon. They never do quite think this through, do they? I suppose they’re assuming they’ll get a pass because they care so much. After all, Gore, DiCaprio, Musk, Steyr, et al. preach the evils of our enormous carbon footprints while living comfortably in estates that would make Louis XIV blush and flitting about in yachts and the finest airframes that Gulfstream can provide. Norm Jun 21 2017 at 8:40 am IIRC, beer was first deliberately produced in Egypt. At the time, Egypt was pretty much the center of what became “western” culture. Yeah, the Greeks had something to do with it too. But they were winos. eon Jun 21 2017 at 9:00 am The Sumerians produced beer about the same time, the Chinese a bit later. But I believe the Olmecs in South America beat everybody else, so it’s off limits to the “#woke”. 😉 cheers eon Pamela Jun 21 2017 at 7:25 pm So when did Tequila first make its appearance on the scene as a libation to the Gods, pain killer and bug killer DASTARDLY DAN Jun 21 2017 at 6:35 am To add to Eon’s list Electricity, light bulbs, transistors (and all their subsequent derivative devices), Brasspounder Jun 21 2017 at 6:44 am The internal combustion engine is right out, too. No mo Cadillac Escalades, yo. NotYetInACamp Jun 21 2017 at 9:51 am Forget Flight. My ancestor helped Wilbur and Orville design and build the air cooled engine they used at Kitty Hawk. He was a hydraulics, cooling, transportation, and inventor whiz. My Great Aunt remembered them coming around to visit often, and once they both stayed about two weeks while working with him every day on the engine. My ancestor built cars and trucks before Ford, and even had a US Postal contract, as well as many patents. So I get to fly and drive. Walk, all of you cultural appropriators. If it comes to genocidal attacks and slaving attacks against us, that also was tried with some success against us. We are still here and wiped out a good proportion of those who tried. The urge to retaliate massively still resides within. Survival rules will kick in. That is when we let God sort the enemy out. We all have so much in our own cultural derivation and history. And we can use any that exist as we are human. They won’t like us when we use some of our human culture against them. Beware. So far Skye has not crossed the ultimate line(s) that would preclude her controlled acceptance back in the family. There are some lines that must never be crossed. Skye has come close. Forgiveness is divine, but always remember. Mental speculation is a fine war game. DASTARDLY DAN Jun 21 2017 at 6:50 am Constitutional form of government Bill of Rights Democracy the list goes on and on eon Jun 21 2017 at 8:09 am Well, they don’t believe in those, anyway. Ask any non-reformed progressive or third world potentate. That is, assuming you can tell the difference; at times, it can be very difficult to do so. clear ether eon Petey Jun 21 2017 at 11:03 am A republic. Not just a democracy. WayneM Jun 21 2017 at 8:09 am As Steven Crowder says… “Cultural appropriation is cultural appreciation.” Grunt GI Jun 21 2017 at 8:43 am First of all, SO MUCH FUN watching the liberal’s heads explode over yesterday’s special elections….BWAHAHAHAHHA, another F**ktard carpet-bagger Hollyweird type sent packing…. Seriously though, as the whitest man on Earth (at least that’s what my son calls me) I can still use phrases like “Hooray for Taco Tuesday?” And I can still make my own burritos right? or am I culturally appropriating them from poor, downtrodden Latinos? http://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/2017/05/24/portland-burrito-shop-forced-to-close-amid-accusations-cultural-appropriation-stealing-recipes.html So should I be buying tortillas and salsa in my local grocery store? Does that offend any special snowflakes? 🙁 Oyyy, so many stupid people…. Can we have a celebratory swimming party for Skye?——We need some happiness. eon Jun 21 2017 at 9:01 am Every leftist revolution ends by eating its own. cheers eon Doggo Jun 21 2017 at 9:23 am We’re almost halfway to the fundraising goal and they haven’t even started toward the water yet. Chris Muir Jun 21 2017 at 12:44 pm I hooted when I read this,heh.There shall be a water scene. Pamela Jun 21 2017 at 1:16 pm Please remember something for the Ladies *looks at Chris over glasses* Chris Muir Jun 21 2017 at 2:16 pm There Shall Be Men. Sounds like that movie… Grunt GI Jun 21 2017 at 1:43 pm Hoooray! I just can’t get over the total head spinning on the left to explain the total ass-whuppin’ they got yesterday. The HuffPo Headline is my favorite: “Another Narrow Dem Loss Shows Why The GOP Could Be In Trouble ” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/house-elections-south-carolina_us_594a0d0ce4b0177d0b8a5ba9?ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009 NO, I am not making this up…that is the actual headline from their home page. These idiots…I hope they keep running the same playbook: 1) Find some milquetoast metrosexual or protected minority 2) Spend millions saying that if you don’t vote for them you are a bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, puppy eating racist 3) Explain why they are the enlightened party of climate change, LGBT rights, unlimited immigration, socialized medicine, and global government 4) LOSE THE ELECTION 5) Whine about why all the bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic, puppy eating racists didn’t vote for them. 6) Rinse 7) Repeat OYYYYYYYYY Norm Jun 21 2017 at 10:01 am I had to Google “special elections” to see what was going on. Apparently the dumbs lost every one of the four that happened. Yet the news articles are “Dems see a silver lining” or “dems outperform 2016” and so on. Keep losing dems. Maybe someday, you’ll get the message. Spin Drift Jun 21 2017 at 10:35 am Down here in Auburn we have a Tex-Mex place called “Tuco’s”, they have a Taco Tuesday and play scenes from “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” in the bathrooms. It’s not uncommon for a group of guys to be watching the pistol scene together. Spin “You Dig” Kafiroon Jun 21 2017 at 10:49 am If I saw some of those types in my grocery store, I would be busy filling the cart with “Mexican” foods just to pizz them off. azscram Jun 21 2017 at 11:31 am It reached 118 yesterday here int he Valley of the Sun. Today’s high might top that. I fully second a celebratory swim. NotYetInACamp Jun 21 2017 at 10:47 am Maybe Skye can be free of these demons? https://stream.org/is-todays-left-possessed/ Pamela Jun 21 2017 at 1:21 pm Break out the fleam in order to balance her humors. Maybe some trepanning to rid her brain of the demons. FastFreddie Jun 21 2017 at 3:01 pm Great article. Thanks for the link. Unca Walt Jun 21 2017 at 11:00 am Good Lord. The cultural Injuns (lately AKA: Native Americans) ALMOST put men on the moon, ALMOST invented X-ray, CAT-scan, MRI machines, blood transfusions. And they were on the brink of E=M(C-squared). We just din’ give them time. We’s bastages, no error. NotYetInACamp Jun 21 2017 at 4:12 pm Our NASA program was tasked with making Muslims around the world feel better about themselves and about Muslim scientific achievements. NASA was tasked with raising Muslim self esteem. Google it. It might still be there as an order of Space Commander Barrack Hussein “Barry” Obama. It failed. The UN has gotten involved. http://i-d.vice.com/en_us/article/the-united-nations-may-finally-make-cultural-appropriation-illegal JTC Jun 21 2017 at 11:09 am My comment from late yesterday on the outcome of the “special elections”: Significant only because it was so significant to “them”…and because it sucked up another 50 million $oro$… http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/republican-handel-wins-georgia-house-election/ar-BBCW1Pb?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout A few days ago the NYT said this race had motivated Democrats nationwide (see $oro$ above) and that even Trump’s rich pastel polo crowd in north Atlanta was concerned. This is presumably a different crowd of deplorables than the poor dumb schmucks who slapped down the beast in November. Petey Jun 21 2017 at 11:17 am I haven’t been a reader long enough to know about Skye’s time in Seattle. It catches my eye. I’m a native; born in 1954, raised in working-class Rainier Valley, a graduate of the University of Washington. We produced Democrats like Scoop Jackson, but unfortunately also milk toast Republicans like Dan Evans. This used to be a gritty place; people worked in fishing, timber, and manufacturing (my late father was a machinist at Boeing for 40 years) Just go to the Filson flagship store downtown and look at their display of well-worn work clothes. Boy, has this changed. That metrosexual millennial at Starbucks rings all too true here. The politics and the culture of this place are unrecognizable to me. Thank goodness it’s still a place of unparalleled beauty, in this man’s opinion. JTC Jun 21 2017 at 1:44 pm http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/officer-stabbed-in-possible-terror-incident-at-michigan-airport/ar-BBCZZ6o?ocid=mailsignout This low-tech lone wolf shit gets going here it is important more than ever to be ever vigilant and aware of one’s situation and surroundings. I’m a big believer, even been accused of being a preacher, of staying away from and and/or removing oneself from threats. I’ll alter that for instances like this where the answer is immediate deadly respons; shouldn’t take too many of those before these POS’s decide to stay in disarmed locations to do their dirty deeds. Maybe they already are aware of the percentage of armed civvies in most American places, I would note that this attack while done against a presumably armed cop, was done in a place where no one else can be armed for response. Stay aware, be prepared. Kafiroon Jun 21 2017 at 7:36 pm Note the fakestians always are complaining about the Israelis shooting the terrorist stabbers dead. Something about “not fair”. eon Jun 21 2017 at 9:19 pm Keith’s Laws of Gun Fighting 1. Have a gun. 2. Never bring a knife to a gun fight. 3. Never bring a pistol to a rifle fight. (Corollary to ) Bringing a machine gun or other heavy weapon is always an option. clear ether eon JTC Jun 21 2017 at 10:01 pm How To Win A Gun Fight 1. Don’t get into one. 2. Hope the other guy brings a knife. 3. If he does, choot ”em. Fuck “fair”. Deplorable B Woodman Jun 21 2017 at 10:27 pm Heavy walking stick(s) and ‘brollys. Unassuming and still legal everywhere. NotYetInACamp Jun 21 2017 at 4:23 pm There is the problem in cultural appropriation where some cultures really CAN”T USE the other culture. It becomes dangerous to cross cultural users. Be aware. They are out there. Though not as dangerous as the ones JTC is warning you about. In those cases always be aware of and plan that you means of response is available for immediate use. If access to your weapon or defense means is blocked by carrying an object in your access hand, that is at least one or two moves delaying your response to a deadly threat. This is not a deadly threat portrayed here. This is simply the danger of misappropriation, and the danger of non scientific magic. https://youtu.be/CewqB-N4gAI Pamela Jun 21 2017 at 7:31 pm He understood getting on and off a train but didn’t even think about asking someone how the sliding doors worked? OY! writeby Jun 21 2017 at 9:51 pm Once you recognize that “multiculturalism”–which chief aim is racial “diversity”–is racist to its core, “culture studies,” &c., can be seen for what they are: indoctrination. And once you recognize that ‘racism’ is the most primitive form of collectivism , you’ll grasp that by “equality” much of the (New) Left professoriate mean “tribal identity,” that is, the individual is essentially erased save for his tribal identity. (The other half of that equation, “feminist (i.e., women’s) studies”–which chief aim is to render everyone’s sex identical (mix & match, it’s all the same anyway; womyn are just men with a vagina; girly-boys, females with a penis; yada, yada, depending on how one *feels*)–is undilluted Puritanism. The Ideal is a primitive tribal society in which the only difference between men and women is the latter’s capacity to breed, this capacity making for the matriachial hierarchy of the tribe–& I assure you, such “society with be steeped in Puritanism, the most repressed form of collectivism.) Let me put all this another way by quoting the philosopher who rules today’s culture, having usurped it from Aristotle, and from whom these…creatures got the idea, consciously or not (mainly not, as–if you’ll note–these so called ideas are stalled at the perceptual (rather than conceptual) form of consciousness): “The best ordered state will be one in which the largest number of persons … most nearly resembles a single person. The first and highest form of the State … is a condition in which the private and the individual is altogether banished from life, and things which are by nature private, such as eyes and ears and hands, have become common, and in some way see and hear and act in common, and all men express praise and blame and feel joy and sorrow on the same occasion, and whatever laws there are unite the city to the utmost …” (Plato’s _Republic_ & _Laws_ c. 370 BCE) writeby Jun 21 2017 at 9:53 pm PS. For further analysis, please see: http://aynrandlexicon.com/ writeby Jun 21 2017 at 10:12 pm PPS. For those who praise Trump’s “pragmatism.” Pragmatism is the “act first, think after” (if at all) philosophy of Pierce, James & Dewey (see public ed for Dewey’s influence–how’s pragmatism working out for us there?). “The true is only the expedient in a way of our thinking….and “the right is only the expedient in a way of our behaving.” (James). And that applies to the GOP as a whole, with rare exception. So, your choice today–politically–is between the pragamatists (GOP) and the Idealists (Dems). See above for the Idealist spokesman, Plato. Choose: Arsenic or .357. What we need are leaders that are realists, i.e., those to whom 1) reality is an absolute; 2) reason is the means for understqanding it; 3) to whom each individual’s life is sacred; and 4) thru rights is kept sacred–NO EFFING TRESSPASSING; PRIVATE PROPERTY. But we won’t get such leaders until *we* stop believing we can achieve freedom & prosperity by means of expediency or delusions. JTC Jun 21 2017 at 11:14 pm Hmm. Dependence on “leaders” to achieve freedom & prosperity is antithetical, and that they are personally responsible for themselves…that’s actually the primary tenet of what freedom is. Trump is the effect, not the cause, of the deplorable cascade. Nobody is going to lead us out of this fine mess. We have to fight our way out. That’s pragmatism. JTC Jun 21 2017 at 11:18 pm “*individuals* are personally responsible for themselves…” For want of an edit function. :[ Deplorable B Woodman Jun 21 2017 at 10:35 pm That might be a good anti-anti-fas / special snowflake / Libtard retort when someone comes at you about “cultural appropriation”; “So, you’re a racist, are you?”, which should seize some Leftists minds.
