Tomatoes love bullshit. That’s why when I plant my garden at the bottom of every hole I put a couple shovelfuls of steer manure. The past couple of days I have been shoveling a lot of steer manure. Maybe that’s why I recognized the aroma so quickly. This is fake, fake, fake, fake, fake.


White nationalists interrupt author at Politics and Prose

A handful of self-proclaimed white nationalists interrupted an appearance by an author at the Politics and Prose bookstore in Northwest Washington on Saturday afternoon, chanted “This land is our land” and then exited to a chorus of loud boos.

The men walked in as author Jonathan M. Metzl, a psychiatrist and director of the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University, was discussing his new book, “Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland.”

Metzl’s book explores how some lower- and middle-class white Americans are drawn to politicians who promise to improve their lives but who promote policies that place white Americans at greater risk of illness and death. His research found that people in states that rejected Medicaid expansion and blocked the full Affordable Care Act lived shorter lives and states that made it easier to buy guns saw hundreds more firearm deaths.

About 10 white male protesters walked into Politics and Prose shortly after Metzl began his talk at 3:30 p.m., videos posted on Twitter show. They gathered in front of Metzl, and an unidentified man with an electric megaphone declared, “You would have the white working class trade their homeland for handouts.”

The crowd began booing, and the man continued talking. Eventually, the group left the store.

Amid the booing, the man added, “But we, as nationalists and identitarians, can offer the workers of this country a homeland, their birthright, in addition to health care, good jobs and so forth.” The booing got louder. He then started the chant of “This land is our land,” and the men walked back out.

No one was hurt, and no damage was done to the store, said co-owner Bradley Graham. “The audience was not particularly receptive,” Graham said. “We just let them have their say, expecting they would leave, and they did.” It doesn’t often happen here. It’s a sign of the times.”

Politics and Prose is a bookstore in the Washington DC neighborhood of Chevy Chase in the northwest part of the city. The bookstore calls itself independent, but good luck finding anything by Ann Coulter or Rush Limbaugh on their shelves.

For those of you who don’t know Washington DC (like me), Chevy Chase is an “affluent” neighborhood that borders Chevy Chase, Maryland. Politically it leans so far left that it is laying on its side. In other words, it ain’t the kind of trailer park where you might expect to run into a few white supremacists.

Now check this out:

The whole interaction did not last for more than five minutes said filmmaker Catherine Wigginton, who said she stepped into the store after seeing the men approaching from along Connecticut Avenue.

“As I was standing outside I saw them march up,” Wigginton told News4. “The whole thing was very fast.”

She had been in the area as part of the same conference that brought Metzl to Politics and Prose, the Antiracist Book Festival at American University, where she was promoting her film “I’m not Racist…Am I?”

Uh huh. Sure, sweetie. If you say so. Were the wearing red MAGA hats and waving nooses while chanting “This is MAGA country!” too?

The book “Dying of Whiteness” was released in early March. Nobody noticed. Amazon has it ranked #898 in books. I haven’t read it (and won’t, unless someone pays me to read it) but at a glance, it’s the usual Leftist tripe about white people in flyover country.

Why do many working-class white Americans support politicians whose policies are literally killing them?

This is the question sociologist and psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl tries to answer in his new book, Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland. The book is a serious look at how cultural attitudes associated with “whiteness” encourage white people to adopt political views — like opposition to gun laws or the Affordable Care Act — that undercut their own health.

The book is not about racism at the individual level, though you can certainly read that into it. For Metzl, the key question is how did a politics of racial resentment become so powerful that it overwhelmed even the basic instinct for self-preservation? To get answers, he spent years talking to voters in Southern and Midwestern states, asking them to explain their political choices. The answers aren’t terribly satisfying, but they are instructive.

So the author holds a promotional appearance at a liberal bookstore to talk about Nazis and lo and behold, some real Nazis show up! And they are filmed (while behaving like Leftists) by someone whose Twitter bio states she is a “Writer & doc filmmaker.” And then they walk out and vanish into the ether.

I call “BULLSHIT!”

Even Jussie Smollett is shaking his head and going, “Dude, this story smells fishy as hell.

Below is a clip of the author discussing his book.

    That couldn’t have been more conveniently staged and executed. And they left before anything nasty happened. Yeah, so fake it gives fakes a bad reputation.

    I guess the WHCD was tonight. Does Trump or Michelle Wolf get credit for killing it?

    • DandyTIger says:

      Heard a “journalist” interviewed about WHCD who admitted that Wolf did serious damage, but Trump is responsible for the changes (little or no Hollywood, etc.). But then said that once there’s another Dem in the Whitehouse, it will likely go back to the love-fest/Hollywood event it used to be. Not sure he meant to make it clear that “journalists” only want a Dem, but there it is.

    I guess pulling a “Smollett” is becoming the newest fad.
    I wonder if the script writing will improve?

    I find myself totally indifferent to any issues of race. I don’t know if that makes me a racist or not, but I don’t care. Slavery has been illegal for over 150 years. The Jim Crow era was a blight, but we’ve had over 50 years and two generations of affirmative action to correct it and atone for it. I admit I have the same bigotry my parents had. Go to school and take advantage of the opportunities an education will give you. Stay on the right side of the law. Get a job before you get married, and get married before you have kids. Take care of you and yours so other people don’t have to do it for you. My dad was a butcher, a trade that has been passed down through his family, but a lot of men in the family have been Methodist ministers so a familiarity with the Scriptures is as much a part of his heritage as knowing how to choose the best roast. The verse he used to quote to us a lot was from Luke- “From everyone who has been given much, much will be required, and from the one who has been entrusted with much, even more will be asked.” Just being born in the US puts you on third base. Be proud of it, not ashamed, and get to work. Otherwise, shut up.

      I went into a totally integrated Air Force in 1956 without a smidgen of racism. Ran into it big time when a couple of POC non-coms complained openly they were being stiffed over race issues. The huge kickback against them came from other, buddy POC’s who told them they were crazy, just making stuff up. But they “worked” the system. From that I’ve deduced that real racism exists, but only in a weak (one out of four) ratio to those reported.
      The bigotry I see is more on economic, not inherited characteristic’s lines.

        I spent my elementary school years during the 50’s on the Quantico Marine Base in their housing . I was a kid, such happy times. Military was more “rank-ish” than racist then. Dad was only a Capt. so we got assigned to the off base “ghetto”, that housed only Capt. and below ranks. Majors and above got the shiny penthouse apts/or single family homes on mainside near the O’club, golf course and pool. I didn’t notice because I spent summers at that pool. Our elementary school was shared with all the base neighborhoods. My earliest memory was a birthday party at my “ghetto” house, I may have been 8 or 9 ? I invited a school friend, who happened to be black, and my dad immediately drove her home after she was dropped off. That’s haunted me ever since, was dad a racist or just obeying housing rules? I lost him in the 80’s, wish I could have a do over. I know now he suffered from PTSD by all the psycho symptoms I’m reading about today, he was a vet of WW2, Korea and Vietnam. He was stoic and ragey all my life. He was also a product of the white trash neighborhoods of Cincinnati and grew up without a father. He dropped out of high school in the 30’s to join the CCC to help his mom and baby twin brothers. WW2 broke out and he joined the Marines as a private, so many died at Guadalcanal, he was given a field commission. He was dating my mom (another Marine private) at the time and was immediately “run up” for fraternization. LOL, charges were dropped because she was preggers with ME and was forced out of the Marines before his trial came up. Thank goodness, abortion was illegal in 1946, or, WTG mom for trapping your baby daddy 🙂 My generation is so full of history, wish I paid more attention. 😀

        Okay, I waited 30 minutes , gonna post this because I survived the Greatest Generation, warts and all !

    We weren’t asked to take this pledge in 2004 and 2008? The worst abuse we got was from other Democrats.

    • elliesmom says:

      They won’t be able to keep the pledge even if they sign on to it. It’s against their nature.

    • 49erDweet says:

      …….and people “spoken negatively about” are just not emotionally strong enough to withstand those ‘slings and arrows’, ya know….

    • Constance says:

      Democrats need to feel superior to someone. If they are in a situation with only Democrats they are going to do anything to feel superior over the other Democrats. Of course they are going to slice and dice all other candidates. It’s the nature of Dems.

      Same shit happened in Chicago.
      Veterans and relatives of CPD, somehow, mysteriously weren’t qualified.
      85% / 96% on entrance exam, passed physical, background check and drug screening but never hired.
      I can’t recall exactly, but minority’s with 70% , minimum passing grade and not much higher, qualified and were hired.
      I follow SecondCityCop blog daily just to see how fuc’d up the CPD has become.

      • Cisco says:

        Here’s another example of CPD/Chicago fuckery.
        This is Legal?
        If you have less than fifteen years, your seniority just went down by one:
        Remember the [recruit] in the academy in 2017 with the cane? She broke her ankle in the academy in 03, sat on payroll for 14 years because she “fell thru the cracks”. Was told in 2017 to come back or she’s gone. She came back, but zero PT because she’s allegedly “disabled.”

        They fired her. She sued.

        Guess who won their suit and is supposed to be in the next class? Along with her 15 years seniority? And yes, she’s still supposedly disabled.
        So now we’re going to hire a fourteen-year medical abuser, who can’t/won’t do physical training, give them permission to carry a gun that will never see street time?
        Woman of color, you betcha’
        Oh, and she’s five years from a pension. Brilliant.
        Labels: un-fucking-fucking-believable

          I’m soooo glad we have all this concern for people who can’t do stuff. Otherwise some actual – you know – police work might get done.

    This is a town very close to where I live. The day after this resolution passed both the high school and the middle school were on lockdown because a bullet was found on a school bus. Nothing else turned up, and things seem to be settling down. I have friends who live there who are quite upset they live in a second amendment sanctuary city. They’d be fine living in a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, though. Being on the minority side on an issue might be good for them to experience. I think the vote came as a complete surprise to them. I won’t be at all surprised if my town follows. I know my neighbors better than they know theirs.

    So funny, some of my prog friends have noticed the LGBTQ BBQ/Guns/Trump t-shirts and they’re all disgusted. And why, because they think conservatives are making fun of LGBTQ people and maybe wanting to BBQ them. They can’t fathom that conservatives could either be LGBTQ or support them. Cracking up.
