This Is Your Brain On Koolaid


This guy has been snorting Koolaid straight from the package:

For all the bad feelings that Donald Trump’s naked religious bigotry and race baiting are conjuring up, they are also providing our nation with an opportunity. The ugly rhetoric just might force the country to finally contend with a problem many don’t even want to acknowledge exists: that we are fast becoming a nation in which minorities make up a majority of the population. As a result, tens of millions of white Americans, accustomed for so long to having all the benefits of being the majority, are scared out of their minds—and it is this fear that Trump is exploiting so effectively. These feelings are emerging not because whites are all racists, but because they don’t know what that might mean for them and their children.

As long as angry, scared white Americans follow Trump and his rhetoric, the racial divide in America will only deepen, and it will become increasingly difficult to solve the nation’s most pressing problems. So the question becomes: Who can counter Donald Trump?

This task can’t be left to pundits, academic experts or even preachers, rabbis and imams—particularly as long as Trump continues to tap into the darkest recesses of people’s souls. Destructive groupthink can overcome even the most sincere efforts of community leaders. It cannot be left up to other 2016 presidential candidates, either. They’re far too busy trying to win the White House to be healers.

There is only one person who can unite the country again, and he works in the White House. Yes, President Barack Obama—ironically, the man who is the personification of the fear Trump is exploiting—is the one in the best position to quell the anger being stirred up.

This is not something the president can do from the Oval Office, or from a stage. What he needs to do is use the power of the office in a different way, one that matches the ruthless effectiveness of a demagogue with a private jet. Obama needs to go on a listening tour of white America—to connect, in person, with Americans he has either been unable or unwilling to reach during his seven years in office.

There is a bunch more but it don’t get no better. The guy who wrote it is Issac J. Bailey:

Issac Bailey is a columnist at the Sun News in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He’s the author of Proud. Black. Southern. (But I Still Don’t Eat Watermelon in front of White People). He was a 2014 Neiman Fellow.

Race relations in the United States haven’t been this bad since the desegregation riots in the Seventies. In fact, things were going pretty smoothly until a few years ago. I’m not saying things were perfect, but things had gotten a lot better and were heading in the right direction.

Then along came Barack Obama. He was supposed to be the fulfillment of Rev. Martin Luther King’s dream. He was supposed to be our first post-racial President. He was supposed to be a healer and a uniter.

Instead he turned out to be the most racially divisive President since . . . ever.

The conventional wisdom on the Left is that all this current racial unrest is due to white people being upset that a black man is living in the White House. That’s bullshit.

Barack Obama intentionally inflamed racial tensions when he adopted a race-card strategy in the campaign against Hillary Clinton. He has been using the same strategy ever since.

I guess it never occurred to him that black people weren’t the only ones who would get riled up.

When Obama first played the race-card on Bill Clinton I predicted it would not end well. I was right.

    It’s the same with BLM – they tell themselves “We’ll block malls and freeways and white people will have no choice but to cave to our demands!”

    Uh, no. We have other options.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I believe their black brothers and sisters use those roads and malls too ? What about them? In fact, I’ve noticed more white faces than minorities in recent BLM news footage which confuses the hell out of me.

      So here we are again, back in the good ole’ days of OWS begging the question “Why?” and being told to “wait for it !”. Sigh.

      • leslie says:

        “In fact, I’ve noticed more white faces than minorities in recent BLM news footage . . . “
        It’s called “Identification with the Aggressor ” – a kind of Stockholm Syndrome, if you will. Now, people who might have been afraid support those who would attack them hoping to stay safe. (imho)
        or else, it is now the chic movement to be part of. Never let a crisis go to waste…😉

        This is of course just me being cynical once again.

        • helenk3 says:

          one of the many things that I have learned in life is that assholes and idiots come in all colors

        • DeniseVB says:

          I saw the Chicago shooting presser on my local news this morning and thought of you ! CPD pretty much admitting mistakes were made with little detail on how it went down. Of course the media covering the grieving family and friends which always adds to the hysteria (and a possible windfall settlement for the family).

          I decided Chicago should immediately deputize all the BLM and SJW groups and start sending them out on domestic calls from now on … unarmed. Then no mistakes will ever be made again. Right? 🙂

        • swanspirit says:

          I think “Identification with the Aggressor” has a lot to do with “sympathy for the Muslims” as well. I have also seen the classic bully behavior from the Vile progs, when they bully people into pain, and then ridicule their discomfort. The progs are the bullies.

  2. DeniseVB says:

    The media continues their all out war against Trump’s supporters which is only firing them up more. They realize that Trump has no fear of them, so the chickensh*ts take on the citizens thinking they are weakening their support. The media is stupid thinking they can intimidate passionate citizens trying to save the country…..from both parties. January’s going to be a fun month😀

  3. DeniseVB says:

    Love this lady …

  4. helenk3 says:

    Even in the 60s with all the unrest it was not as bad as now. I like many of you have worked with all races and religions and we worked together to get the job done and make a better life for our families.. Now i am so fed up that I would have no problem going back to segregation. I did not ever think that I would get to that point. Blacks have been given more in this country than any country in the world and it is still not enough for them. The make idols of thugs and trash any blacks that have enough self respect to make something of themselves and then wonder why their kids are in trouble.
    take a good look at who backtrack praises it is almost always the thug or the deserter. What kind of example is that?

    A couple of weeks ago a 15 year old black boy gave his life to save 3 girls. Did his family get invited to the white house? NO. backtrack did mention him in passing but that is all. Did this kid get attention from sharpton or jackson? NO under this regime bad behavior is admired and good behavior is ignored

    • DeniseVB says:

      I blame Obama for BLM, which is just about as worthless as OWS was. Just never could figure out their grievances. Sharpton also was key in recommending Lorretta Lynch to replace Holder. So now we have one big effed up war on law enforcement and nothing much else to show for years of distruption and destruction.

      • helenk3 says:

        i was taught to believe that all lives mattered. Now I am being told only black lives matter and any others do not. i am not black, if they do not give a damn about my life, why should I give a damn about theirs?

    • DandyTIger says:

      Does anyone actually listen to these idiots? It’s like accidentally flipping to the McLaughlin Group on TV and thinking, holy shit, they’re still alive. If you picture them all in white powdered wigs, what they say makes more sense.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        It’s like when you were a kid and you got a birthday letter from your great-aunt who gave you advice that might have made sense 30 years earlier.

    • blowme0bama says:

      I’d read recently that many victims of mountain lion attacks are riding trail bikes in the woods. I suppose they look like a huge cat toy dashing through the forests.

    From my sister’s FB:

    Sitting around the living room visiting with family. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter starts stripping down and singing “we’re having a naked party!”

    The Klown gene strikes again!

  8. Myiq2xu says:

    Donald Trump on Sunday accused Hillary Clinton of unfairly trading on her gender while declaring Bill Clinton to be “fair game” as the former president hits the trail to campaign for his wife.

    “She’s playing the woman’s card,” Trump said during an interview on Fox News, before turning his attention to Clinton’s husband, declaring him “fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled because of all the things that she’s talking to me about.”

    “She’s mentioning sexism,” Trump added, referencing a recent interview in which Clinton told the Des Moines Register the billionaire had “demonstrated a penchant for sexism.”

    In a tweetstorm Saturday night, Trump wrote, “Hillary Clinton has announced that she is letting her husband out to campaign but HE’S DEMONSTRATED A PENCHANT FOR SEXISM, so inappropriate!”

    On Sunday morning, a little more than 12 hours later, Trump gloated about it.

    “I turned her exact words against her,” he said.

    If America was going to elect a person solely based on skin pigmentation and gloat about post racial, at least they could have elected a true American black with the historical weight of slavery on his/her back. That would have held true meaning and perhaps some post racial cleansing, but to elect a man with sort of black skin ( white mom) and having never had the historical weight of slavery in his family we got NOTHING. Obama has hurt race relations. He can not speak for either the blacks nor the whites. He is just a symbol and a weak tea symbol at best.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Like Ben “ghetto to brain surgeon” Carson ? Herman Cain? Allen West? All strong conservatives. I never noticed their color before the left went all nuts on their “porch monkey” asses. Gee, how did Obama rise with so little to propel him? I’ll never figure that one out, but he had a lot of media help with psychos like Chrissie Leg Tingles. 😉

      • piper says:

        Lots of moolah from George Soros who wanted a puppet in the WH who was an ideologue and was willing to bring the United States to its knees like a third world country.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        As we said eight years ago – if Obama was white with the same record and skills he would have been laughed off stage.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Yeppers and didn’t Geraldine Ferraro say the same thing, then got FIRED (or the PC version: RESIGNED) from Hillary’s campaign ? About the same time the race card was pulled on Bill for saying Obama wasn’t qualified to bring him coffee ?

          Reminds me when Jay Leno asked John Edwards, during that bizzarro 2008 campaign season, “What were you thinking running as a rich, white guy?”

          And my current favorite, from a recent Dem Debate, Hillary was asked “how are you different from Obama?” Hillary leans into the microphone and whispers, “I have a vagina”.

          Okay, that was paraphrased, but I’m sure I’m pretty damn close😀

    • piper says:

      Totally agree with your comment. Here are some true Americans – Herman Cain, Allen West, Tim Scott, Mia Love

      • piper says:

        Before you say anything about Mia – her parents were Haitians who were in danger from the secret police in Haiti.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Mia and I are “friends” on facebook since her first run for Congress when she lost🙂 She’s a beautiful and inspiring person and loved when the media portrayed her as a Sarah Palin with more dynamite. She sailed into Congress on her next try.

    • insanelysane says:

      Not to mention them having to rig the caucuses and bribe the Superdelegates to put this fraud into the Oval Office.
      Subverse Democracy for a symbol and not even a good symbol. Just Like Trayvon and the gentle giant in Ferg. Hollow empty for truth.

      I think if Trayvon had a real father he would look like Barack Obama.

    I am so excited – kid tge younger has agreed to let me try to sell some of her digital art on zazzle. Hopefully in a week or so I’ll have it set up. I’m excited about the brag part of it – she usually hides her stuff from everyone.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Woot, can’t wait. In the meantime, can you’splain to Lucy why I got the Einstein math q wrong downstairs? I’ll wait😉 Meanwhile…

      • votermom says:

        You have me confused with the Math blogger. Daaandy….😀

      • leslie says:

        I’d like to know as well. Since there were NO parentheses, the order of operations indicated to me it would be zero times six plus two which equals 2. Right? Otherwise, if there had been parentheses it could have been 3 minus (3×6) plus 2 which equals -13.
        I’m still wondering . . .

        • 1539days says:

          If you type it into a spreadsheet, you’ll get -13.

          The implication is that a minus sign in front of a number has to be evaluated with the number. The -3 means the 6 was multiplied by -3 instead of 3 and subtracted,

          3-3×6+2 becomes (-3)x6 or -18. 3 – 18 (or 3+ -18) is -15 and +2 makes it -13.

          I got it wrong as well. Order of operations isn’t clear enough IMO. In my day, negative numbers had a stubby dash instead of a regular minus sign.

      • DandyTIger says:

        It’s an order of operations thing with Arithmetic. You perform any operations within parentheses first. Then you perform any multiplication and division from left to right. And last, you perform any addition and subtraction, also from left to right.

        • DandyTIger says:

          So the problem was 3-3×6+2. You do the multiplication first. So you get 3-18+2. Then you do the addition and subtraction from left to right. First the subtraction, which gives you -15+2. Then the addition, which gives you -13.

          • leslie says:

            There were no parentheses.
            So the order of operations was 3-3 (=0) then 0x6 (=0) then plus 2.
            See, how the confusion remains without parentheses?

          • DandyTIger says:

            Nope. The order is as I said. If there are parentheses, stuff in them comes first. Without any, or after you’re done with them, comes multiplication/division, then addition/subtraction. All left to right.

    I just returned from seeing the movie “Spotlight”. It’s a kind of docudrama of the Boston Globe’s 2002 story of the abuse of children by priests in the Boston archdiocese and the complicity of Cardinal Law and the archdiocese itself. It reminded me (on many levels) of “All the President’s Men”. The film is part documentary, part thriller, part mystery – very much a drama. The story affected not only Boston, but the world ever since it broke. The acting was wonderful – I like all the actors – the music was perfect. The writing was really good. I had wanted to see this movie since it opened, but the timing was not good for me until today.
    I plan to see it again – after I see the other movies (except the Tarantino movie) that are out and that interest me. So far I’ve seen “Brooklyn” (it was wonderful!) “The Danish Girl” (the actors were incredible, but the movie wasn’t that great), and now “Spotlight”.
    My son invited me to see SW this coming week. Going to the movies with my son is always good times….🙂
