Savage Hippie Episode 30 – Mondo Islamo: On the Third Rail with Howard Bloom

me_ann_david_howard_bloom_muslims

In this very special edition of the Savage Hippie podcast, we had the pleasure of having Howard Bloom on our show.  At the risk of diminishing his contributions by simply slapping a label onto him, if you’re asking “who dat?” or “wut he dun?”, the proper answer should be, “what HASN’T he done?”, as the interview shall reveal.  But, if you’re STILL too lazy to just click on the link, he’s an author of several books on human evolution, which develop his theory of how societies evolve as giant organisms and how their people function as the microorganisms.

On top of that he was a publicist for some the music world’s lesser known, fringe artists – ya know, like Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Simon & Garfunkle, Talking Heads, Lionel Ritchie, Kiss, John Mellencamp and Earth, Wind & Fire – and he was a leading activist against the Parent’s Music Resource Center (PMRC), those no-fun having Senators’ wives lead by (cough cough) Democrat Tipper Gore, who were afraid little Bobby and little Jimmy were turning into sex maniacs after listening to a Judas Priest and AC/DC records.

But our main topic for THIS evening’s discussion is everybody’s favorite Religion of Peace™, which he discusses at length in his upcoming book, The Muhammad Code: How a Desert Prophet Brought You ISIS, al Qaeda and Boko Haram, soon to be released through Feral House.

Eventually the conversation drifts into a variety topics from the future of the United States under Donald Trump  (spoiler: Bloom is NOT a Trump supporter), the development of musical subcultures and some other interesting insider tidbits… ALTHOUGH…

WE NEVER GOT TO THE STORY ABOUT CALIGULA AND BOB GUCCIONE (not Bob Guccione, Jr. who started Spin magazine and we DO talk about a little bit)

Just a note to longtime listeners:

If you’re expecting our typical “Ann and David pile on Edwin to make everyone laugh and then make a bunch of offensive, crude and SPLC-list level statements about minorities”, we eschew the insults, poo poo jokes, menstrual references and ethnic stereotyping for something that is actually INFORMATVE.  So, you dirty miscreants might actually LEARN something rather than laugh in a drunken stupor!

Well, except for the completely tasteless artwork, whose concept was created by me and dictated (Muslim style) to Vittoria Brooke Shaw, who is one of my 72 non-virgins.  The song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and per the direction of the episode, there is no Sounds of Marshabaloosh this week.

A Hilarious Exchange with an SJW

soaring_eagle_Indians_Nazi_salute_2I know: I’m a masochist.  If people on the left, mainly SJWs, are r-selected, rather than K-selected, they really can’t help themselves, and it’s pretty useless arguing with them.  But, I try, only to have it shoved back in my face with ad hominem attacks – the biggest, stupidest, most glaring one, of course, is that I’m at the ‘rents house, even though I’ve lived on my own numerous times in the past – and completely irrelevant facts.

My favorite is the one where people say, “yeah, let’s not let in the mud people because they’re trying to take away the land we stole from the Indians.”  Pretty clever, huh?  This person’s logic holds that, even if the “mud people” (his words, not mine) ARE invading, we sorta deserve to be conquered because of what the white man did to the Indians in the past.  Well, sorry homie, but my parents came to the United States in 1974.  Oh, WAIT, they’re immigrants, therefore we need to let in ALL immigrants.  Oh WAIT, my dad was an engineer and my mom was a chemist, and neither of them went on welfare or worked under the table.  And they came here legally.

The conversation I’m going to talk about began with Donald Trump and the Syrian rapefugees, and of course degenerated into name calling.  Lord knows I tried to be civil, but this guy, being an SJW, in order to maintain his views, NEEDED to have me be a right wing caricature in order to maintain his narrative.  He needs me to be a David Duke-esque virgin, who jerks off to anime and lives at home, in order to have moral high ground, because otherwise, his arguments are just too weak.  I created most of this from memory, but I SWEAR it’s as accurate as can be without being too self-aggrandizing.

Me: We shouldn’t let Syrian rapefugees into the country.  Look at what happened to Europe.  It became the rape capital of the Western world after they lett Muslim immigrants in.  I don’t want that happening here.

Him: Well, ya know, Christianity is just as bad because of the Crusades. Okay, I know you, as the reader are thinking, “no way, he’s not that stupid”, but I SWEAR this was actually something he pointed out before smugly saying, “why don’t you read a book.”

Me: You’re a retard (yeah, I called him a retard) for pointing out something that happened more than 700 years ago to justify essentially trying to kill off the West by letting Muslims invade it.  Also you’re inviting rape culture into the country.

Him: Those claims of rape in European countries are completely unsubstantiated – in other words, since they were committed by those saintly brown people, white women deserved it, or are probably lying because “racism” – and 1 in 4 women on college campuses are raped every year.  We have the rape culture.

Me: Is it 1 in 4?  Didn’t they change it to 1 in 5 and then 1 in 7?  Don’t they keep changing the definition of rape so it seems higher because they’re on witch hunt?  Either way, I told a girl at a bar that she has a nice ass.  This is true because she did and she had black hair and tattoos, and looked punky/hipstery, so she was probably a feminist and doesn’t realize how much that compliment will mean to her in 30 years.

Him: Of course you would, you probably have never even touched a girl outside of your mom (now, it’s personal).

Me: Don’t worry about me, man.  I get plenty of pussy.

Him: Huh, people who talk about it don’t get it. (really clever one, isn’t he?)

Me: Oh, actually I’m seeing someone right now, and we went to the Soaring Eagle casino for a weekend of gambling, fucking and pot smoking.

Him: Woa, so rebellious, don’t tell your mom! (why wouldn’t I tell her about that? It was Amanda’s mom who set the whole thing up.)

Me: I just can’t win with you, can I?

Him: No, you’re a basement dwelling, t-shirt making (referring to my wicked cool Punks for Trump shirts) fascist.

Me:

I’m actually starting to like this song; not for the lyrics of course.

Why Are People on the Left Obsessed with Balance?

book_stack_2.0In the aftermath of the Orlando shooting, I’ve lost a number of Facebook friends, including a couple of gay ones, who tried to pin the attack on the “Christian Right” or the precarious concept of “homophobia.”  Anyone who isn’t completely retarded knows that the reason Omar Mateen opened fire on a bunch of gays in a gay club is because he’s a Muslim, and Muslims hate gays.  He openly expressed ties to ISIS and acted exactly as his holy book told him to.

And, believe it or not, there ARE people on the left who completely agree that Islam is exactly what motivated Mateen.  HOWEVER – and this is HUGE – leftists STILL feel the need to give a tit for tat rationalization for the event.  In other words, even though this guy acted in the name of his whackadoodle death cult, according to leftists, Christians are JUST AS likely to act in the same way.  And aren’t they correct?  I mean, you have the Westboro Baptist church and this hilarious black preacher yelling about gays shooting fire out “they ass”, and you have the Crusades, and you have Timothy McVeigh and Dylann Roof and Christopher Harper-Mercer and Elliot Rodger; clearly, nutjobs come in all walks of life.

Except these arguments are all completely wrong.  If Christians are JUST AS likely to commit the atrocities that Muslims commit, how come something like 30,000 of the last terrorist attacks since 9/11 have been linked to Islam?  When is the last time a group of Christians flew planes into buildings, opened fire into gay clubs, raped a bunch of women on New Years Eve or blew up the Bataclan in France?  And, last time I checked, the Crusades happened more than 700 years ago.  Christians en masse don’t do that anymore.

And, for Timothy McVeigh, Dylann Roof, Christopher Harper-Mercer and Elliot Rodger, you literally have such a diverse motivation for their actions, that to find any pattern at all, other than that they’re crazy and should not have had access to the weapons they possessed, is completely disingenuous.  McVeigh was a crazy militia guy who hated the government, Roof was racist, Harper-Mercer was sort of like a cross between McVeigh and Roof, only he was half black, and Rodger was pissed off that he was still virgin at 22, not to mention being half Asian.

Yet, I still have a Facebook friend who claims that Christianity’s influence, while not having the direct, “kill all the infidels” message of Islam, infiltrates more subliminally, commanding the McVeighs and Roofs of the world to kill people.  I’m sorry, but that’s really dumb.  That’s so dumb, that I wonder if this person is just saying it because he NEEDS to maintain the notion of balance, that “there’s assholes in every crowd”, or if he legitimately believes it.

He’s right about one thing.  There certainly ARE assholes in every crowd.  Nobody denies that.  There are also good people in every crowd as well, including Islam.  But individual circumstances or the “have you actually met a (fill in the blank) person before?” philosophy completely goes counter to the law of large numbers, which we have been using for centuries to figure out how to deal with different groups of people.  Unfortunately the left, or rather the politically correct left, simply cannot fathom that some races, ethnic groups, sexes (and there’s only two) or religions are over or under represented in various walks of life simply because they are.  Or maybe they secretly DO realize this, but don’t want to say so out loud.

I was talking to another friend of mine I told him that it’s not racist to blatantly say that black ghettos are dangerous and violent, more violent than the ghettos of any other group of people.  His response to me was that poor, white trash areas are ALSO violent.  Yeah, because statistically speaking, trailer parks are known for their crack gangs and drive by shootings, where little children are gunned down.  It’s that denial that leftists wallow in just so they don’t have to confront the ugly reality that maybe some groups of people haven’t gotten their shit together.

I dare ask why a place, such as Ferndale, MI, which is right next door to a crime ‘n’ crack infested shithole like Detroit is almost entirely free of crime.  I read that police officers were accused of stopping blacks and Latinos more often than anyone else for traffic violations.  This means either that cops are overly mean to dark people or that dark people from Detroit are simply speeding more.  Either way, considering how blacks are responsible for over 50% of homicides and make up only 13% of the population of the entire country, there IS a reason why they’re not bringing much of that violent crime over the Eight Mile Rd. divide, which separates Ferndale from Detroit.  And I’m fairly it isn’t because of an invisible force field.

A couple of my friends also wanted to draw the direct parallel to college kids rioting whenever their football teams won or lost.  Real smart there guys; last time I checked college football riots didn’t destroy entire communities and make business owners pack up shop when they collected their insurance checks and moved to other communities, ones less prone to self destruction.  Another one of my friends drew a direct parallel between the Ferguson rioters with the group of bikers who caused a bunch of trouble last year, as if that too is a common occurrence.  You see, numbers.

But, of course, actually saying any of that will get you branded as an evil, racist, neo-Nazi, poo-poo head.

Just like it will get you called a racist for complaining that Indians (dots, not feathers) bargain too much.  A former QuickenLoans coworker who is Asian (Korean, I think) complained about this, that every time she hears “that accent”, she knows she’s going to have to be on the phone that much longer to try to hammer out a deal.  She also told me that I’m not allowed to make this same observation because I’m white.

Or get you called anti-semitic for pointing out that nearly every major media outlet is owned and/or run by Jews; Jews like Steven Spielberg who make movies like Schindler’s List in order to shove heaping piles of guilt down everyone’s throat, as if most people who saw the film were ever involved with the Holocaust.

Or get you called a sexist pig for pointing out that the reason women only make $0.77 for every man’s dollar is because they choose easier professions that don’t pay as much along with working less hours.  If every woman in the world stopped working, the only professions that would be greatly affected would be nursing and elementary school teaching.  Yet, since women insist they’re equal to the men, they go through college, bust their asses AND… get mediocre office jobs that anybody could do.  Or get bumped up to H.R. positions, so they can discriminate against men, mainly white men.  Ever wonder why the staff at Huffington Post is ALL women?  Yeah, me neither.

But, wait, isn’t women’s soccer more popular than men’s soccer?  Shouldn’t THEY be making as much as the men.  First of all, no, it’s not, and, second of all, how much they make is up to whoever THEY negotiate deals with.  For the women’s soccer league to demand as much money as the men’s is the same as people who work at Walmart complaining that they don’t make as much as the people at Meijer.  Why is it Meijer’s responsibility to make sure Walmart employees are paid more?    It makes no sense; but, it makes good propaganda!

So, what gives, eh? I don’t freakin’ know.  Since nowadays you can choose what race, sex, ethnicity or species of animal you want to be, there’s no reason to complain about inequality at all.

 

 

 

I’ve Got Israel on My Mind

hakim

I don’t need anyone to point out the irony that I had the Holocaust song “Death or Glory” running through my head when I came up with the title for this post.  Ya know, because of their name, which either was or wasn’t inspired by the historical event that so became labeled in the 1960s and had been spoon fed to the masses through shit movies like Schindler’s List;  what kind of Jew would say such a thing?!  Oh, the HORROR!!!  My skinhead pals Nick and Gabe called me a self-hating Jew just because I pointed out that the Holocaust industry makes all the non-Jew honkies feel bad, as if anyone under 70 years old had anything to do with it.  I’m NOT a self-hating Jew; I’m so nationalistic/Zionistic, you could call me an ashkeNAZI, yuck, yuck.  I am, however, very critical of some of my fellow brethren for being such idiots over the years; like, for instance, my coworker, who has been so guilted by the retarded misinformation about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict that he feigned complete indifference to taking the FREE Birthright trip because he’s so uncomfortable/ashamed of his ethnic heritage.  Nice work, BDS (Batman Does Superman?).  Where college campus intimidation didn’t work, your shaming campaign did.  But, I’m not a libtard, and you Pali-Jordanian-whatevers are getting EVERYTHING you deserve.

A couple days ago, I was asked what my feelings were about U.S./Israeli relations and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict as a whole.  Now, there’s a difference between what MY personal feelings are and what I feel are the appropriate policies for the current situation.  It seems as though, when debating the topic, the only sides you can take are that either you’re for having the U.S. back Israel financially or you’re an idiotic, BDS (bondage, domination and sadism?) supporting, left-wing douche.

But, that just doesn’t compute because, as the hot, Aryan dominatrix Ann Coulter pointed out, the population of the United States is only 2% Jewish, and average Americans are not concerned about what’s going on in or around Israel anymore than they are about Japan. They’re not against Israel and would gladly visit Israel, but, in terms of their national allegiance, they don’t really have much stake in Israel.

So, if it doesn’t have anything to do with them personally, why would they want their tax dollars to go to Israel, or any other country for that matter?  Jim Goad wrote this hilarious article about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, which sums up the matter quite nicely.  In principle I feel the Jews deserve a homeland just as much as any other group.  Ben Shapiro claims that being a Jew is not about “remembering the Holocaust”, but about following the laws of the Torah.  Is it necessarily about either?

Well, I’m Shapiro’s age, but I’m not a Torah thumping, Yarmulke wearing, davening every morning, wait until marriage to have sex, religious dude.  So then what makes someone a Jew?  Well what makes someone an Armenian, Greek, Italian, German or Irish?  Maybe blood ties to tribes that go back several thousands of years, who formed nations and have certain ethnic characteristics– YYYEEESSSS, I BELIEVE THAT RACIAL AND ETHNIC DIFFERENCES EXIST AND “RACE” IS NOT JUST A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT–  And no, sorry, the Jews of Europe do not descend from the Khazars.  Even “Jews run the world” David Duke doesn’t believe that.

Was the creation of Israel good in a geopolitical sense?  Let’s put it this way; if I were to go to the worst ghetto of Detroit, pull out a wad of twenties and swing them around, and a group of thugs robbed me at gunpoint or killed me, you would think I’m a dumb ass, wouldn’t you?  You’d ask me what I was doing in such a shitty area waving money around.  Well, what if I came back to that same area per my technically legal right to be there, since it is a free country after all, only this time I’m carrying a gun, and I put a few bullet holes in my assailants.  Would you think I’m a murderer or a hero?  Am I defending myself or out for blood?

Once you can honestly answer that question, then you know what side you stand on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.  When Jews went to Israel after World War II, they knew they would be surrounded by a population of savages, whose values date back to about when their religion was initially established and only understand the way of force and violence.  They hate Jews simply because they do.  The Jews briefly thought about setting up their homeland in Uganda, but fuck Uganda.

And don’t go calling me racist when I speak of the “religion of peace” in such colorful terms.  As Ann Sterzinger pointed out, Islam isn’t a race; it’s a mental disorder.  There are white Muslims too, and all you have to do to not be a Muslim is simply stop practicing Islam.  Sorry if CAIR brainwashed you into thinking “Islamophobia” is actually a thing.  If you’re going to take the “but that’s religious bigotry route”, then why don’t you yell at EVERY SINGLE MEDIA OUTLET THAT LAMPOONS CHRISTIANITY FIRST, you dope.  But, you know, if we had just left the Islamic world to its own devices, we wouldn’t be experiencing all of these terrorist acts.  If you think the attacks in Brussels or San Bernardino have anything to do with the Middle East, or more specifically, the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, I want to know what you’re smoking!  Okay, ISIS was an outcome of going to Iraq, but what of it now?  Why are so many Muslim kids radicalized in the West?  Could it be their pathological aderence to the Koran?

But, back to my point.  I honestly, to a man, feel that the majority of the people who support BDS (bagels, donuts and sausages?) are the same bearded, glasses wearing, feminist hipster fags who support retarded, leftist agitators such as #blacklivesmatters, Occupy Wall Street and every other George Soros backed, anti-American, anti-male, anti-white crusade.  They of course don’t realize that the people they want to help hate them with a furious, “kill all the honkies” passion; in some cases replace “honkies” with Jews.

The “hillbillies” that liberals like to lampoon, the ones that put the confederate flags on their pickup trucks, are much more tolerant of Jews than the blacks, Latinos and Dearbornistan dwelling Muslims who they’re trying to side with; you’re not them, you’re not like them and you’ll never be like them.  I honestly feel that most liberals and leftists think that Israel is the “oppressor” and that the Palestinians are the “oppressed” because the more prosperous Israeli population has a lighter complexion, and the less prosperous Palestinian population has a darker one.  Hell, Donald Trump, the man they’re so fond of bashing, wants to not let 10,000 Jew hating Syrians and other assorted, Islamic riff raff into the country and they’re against that?  But Jews have always been their own worst enemies; first they were complicit in creating Marxism and Cultural Marxism and then they watched as the derelicts whom they sired turned on them and trounced all over Israel.  And yet self-hating, liberal Jews, like this one guy, Brian that I know, can only do one thing: bash whitey.  This guy hates himself, the United States and white people so much, that he will do anything to defend the “innocent” Muslims and “oppressed” non-whites, who most likely hate him, even if it means retreading the tired, cliched and completely irrelevent Holocaust comparison.  Godwin’s Law indeed.

And all of that footage of IDF soldiers dancing around bombs or allegedly celebrating blowing up little kids on the Gaza is just a bunch of gussied up propaganda that’s taken out of context.  We call that Pallywood.  If you feel so bad about what you see in those little clips, do you feel the same about the Allies bombing Dresden?  If you feel that the so called displaced “Palestinians” (there never was a Palestine; they’re actually Jordanians) deserve all their land back, do you feel the same way about the Indians?  Or the Japanese during World War II for that matter?  And, while we’re on the topic of rights of return, why is it that, after being put in interment camps and only receiving paltry reparations, the Japanese bounced back and now are massively successful in the world of tech, while Palestinians are, well… good at killing, stabbing and blowing themselves up?

It’s war, son; you send your nail-filled Qassam rockets into our land, we’ll blow yours to pieces, got it?  Good!  You don’t want us to occupy your slightly less militant West Bank, keep your terrorists in check.

With all that said, does the U.S. need to fund Israel and its efforts to keep itself safe?  When I suggested it did not, the backlash from the evangelical right was hard and fierce.  One guy said that the only country we need to fund is Israel.  Really?  I mean, look, if you gave me billions of dollars year after year, I wouldn’t turn it down, but that’s on you, and I’ve been to AIPAC meetings at the local synagogue; there’s really nothing that went on there that warrants much discussion.  The problems they discussed with the crazy Pali-kids running around stabbing people is an Iraeli problem, and now that Israeli citizens are arming themselves, well…

Now, look up above at what I wrote.  Does any of that imply in any way that I am not an Israel supporter, or that I’m on the side of the Mujahideen?  I’m clearly supporting Israel’s right to defend itself.  I’ve been to Israel, I like it in Israel, I recognize it as the only democracy in the Middle East where hot, tanned, Kim Kardashian lookalikes roam the streets.  The culture is laissez-faire in regards to being a drunk degenerate; so much so in fact there’s an article at the Alternative Right, which says Israel is in the same state of moral and cultural decline as places in Europe and the U.S.

But should the U.S. play favorites with the economy in the state that it’s in?  As a Jew, is it fair to force 200,000,000 working Americans to help fund a country that they don’t care about?  I’m of the mindset that the U.S. shouldn’t play favorites; not to Israel, not to Iran, not to Saudi Arabia, not to Mexico, not to China, not to Russia, nobody.  I’m an American after all and, as much as it as it annoys me when people make stupid claims about a conflict they don’t wholly grasp about a country they don’t even know is the size of New Jersey or care so damn much about when it really doesn’t affect them, I first and foremost care about the U.S.

And, hey, if you care for the Palestinians so much, why don’t you go live among them; especially if you’re gay or an overweight feminist with blue hair.

Do I TOO Suffer from a High IQ or How I Screwed Myself All of These Years

ed_young_and_cute

I recently read how conservatives and liberal/leftists’ brains might actually be shaped differently.  And I thought, “could that really be the reason why common sense and logic doesn’t pass the proverbial emotional chasm for people on the left?”

I shall demonstrate my point using two examples.

For the first one, I made the foolish mistake of letting my friend and coworker read my blog.  His response was something along the lines of, “well, buddy, I don’t agree with most of what you say, but I wish you luck.”  I asked him what he didn’t agree with and he said he didn’t agree with my “racist”, pro-Trump article.  According to him, it was “racist” to suggest that, in order to prevent future terrorist attacks, we allow airport security to more closely scrutinize Muslims, or to profile them.

I asked him how it was “racist” in any way, and he said, “well, you advocate profiling a group of people based upon their appearance.”  In true liberal fashion, he refused to let me explain, instead saying, “I don’t want to debate it”, and therefore condemned me, at least in that instance, as a “racist.”

Of course, we all know this is bullshit.  Islam isn’t a race, and therefore, if a person stops practicing Islam, he or she is no longer a Muslim.  But, let’s say his point is that it’s just mean or bigoted.  Well, for one, I make it clear that, if someone is dressed like a Sikh, that person most likely poses no threat, since the roughly 30,000 terrorist acts since 9/11 have not been committed by Sikhs, but by worshipers of Muhammad.  Therefore it’s not that hard to fathom why people would want to scrutinize a Muslim closer than say a Sikh, Christian, Jew or Buddhist.

For my second example, I made the equally foolish mistake of debating Syrian immigration with another one of my friend/coworkers.  The conclusion I unsurprisingly drew was the same one drawn by Donald Trump; for the sake of safety, I’m against it.

I further expanded by explaining how immigration from Muslim countries and their rather intolerant culture have helped turn Sweden into the rape capital of the Western world and led to the Muslim rape spree that occurred in Cologne on New Years Eve.  I continued by saying that I pretty much refuse to go into Dearborn, MI, the Detroit suburb with the highest concentration of Muslims, because I just don’t feel safe there.  This may seem extreme, but it partly has to do with the fact that I just don’t want to give money to a single Muslim business in case the owner might funnel money to Hamas or Hezbollah, something that has been known to happen from time to time.

He responded by asking me if I felt safer in Detroit.  So, I said that I certainly felt safer at various bars in the Midtown or Corktown areas.  His response was, “I’m not talking about your hipster places, I’m talking real Detroit.”  So, of course I said, “oh, in that case, yeah, I feel safer in Dearborn, than in bombed out ‘hoods’ where blacks shoot at each other.”  Following a big ol’ grunt, he responds with, “ugh, I meant the downtown Comerica Park area where people see concerts and sports games.”

So, in other words, he a.) didn’t like how I didn’t feel safe among Muslims, b.) didn’t like how I felt even less safe in the abandoned, bombed out shoot ’em up areas of Detroit and therefore c.) moved his goal post to compare Dearborn with a place that’s heavily policed and families go to for sports events?!  So, when I told him that comparing Dearborn with a heavily policed area of Detroit that families go to for sports events makes no sense and undermines his entire argument, he naturally changed the subject.  Liberal logic ain’t no logic at all.

In both cases, you’re probably reading this and thinking, “who are these idiots you associate with?”  Well, they’re not stupid.  With one guy, I spend too much time at work shooting the shit about bands and records and, with the other guy, I chat about films.  But the question remains; why do they so pathologically cling to the left?

I have no idea, but one thing it must mean is that my ability to divorce emotion from logic and come up with those conclusions, at very least, indicates I have a higher IQ than my two chums; sorry Kevin and Ian if you guys read this! 😉

So why, if I have such a high IQ, am I stuck in lower middle class office land, sitting at a computer and not using my mega brain power to change the world?

Jello Biafra (I reference him a lot, don’t I?) said in one of his later compositions that he doesn’t comprehend how “geeks can be so damn mean.”  Like a typical leftist, Biafra derided jocks and hillbillies, scapegoating them for America’s so called problems in many a Dead Kennedys song, alleging that they would become America’s future leaders.  What a lack of insight!  America’s leaders weren’t going to be the jocks, goons, hillbillies, rednecks and white trash, you fool!  While Jello influenced his fans to “find themselves” and become “cool” by being “outsiders”, there were true outsiders who didn’t fit into any cliques, who today would be diagnosed with Asperger’s, that were busy learning marketable skills, rather than trying to impress chicks with dreadlocks and tattoos by memorizing Howard Zinn texts.  Years later, they’re rich, antisocial and call the shots.

If only I was that geek.  I often joke about how I’m a sperg, but I clearly wanted to fit in with the punk crowd to get some of that slutty punk pussy, and I can’t say I’ve done too bad for myself.  But, boy did I hang out with a bunch of dumb people; seriously, punks are NOT smart.  They have no knowledge of politics or history and mostly talk about booze, bands and what is and isn’t “punk.”

For years, I had my priorities all over the place, and my college grades and subsequently potentially money-making career suffered for it; I was a straight A math student in calculus classes in high school and I was an intellectual reader of literature (Dostoevsky, Balzac, Hemingway, Faulkner, Joyce, you name it), but I wanted attention from the skanks and I wanted to go to punk shows and to drink beer and run around in a circle with idiots.  My girlfriend from ’03-’04 even called me her “bookworm” because I liked to read, because she thought it was cute or hot; not that she had any actual interesting in what I was reading, mind you.

Unfortunately, I can’t go back.  I’m too far gone down this path; I’ve got tattoos, I wear a leather jacket, I’m totally obsessed with music, films and weird ephemera and I’m entrenched in an underground scene full of morons who can’t comprehend why I would vote for Trump no matter how many times I try to explain it.  But, somewhere, I wish I had banked on my IQ just a little bit more and that I had spent less time guzzling cans of PBR, trying to impress idiots and trying to shack up with HPV afflicted hoes.

Why the Syrian Immigrants? Because the Pilgrims, Duh!

When I was younger, I used to think that smart asses were in fact actually SMART!  But, the more I live my godforsaken existence as a privileged white male Jew who is painfully undersexed and drinks too much, the more I realize that being a “smart ass” is actually a substitute for being smart.  Case in point: in an attempt to both assuage our fears and concerns about letting in 10,000 Syrian “refugees” into the United States and to shame the people who don’t want to let 10,000 Syrian “refugees” in the country, John Oliver “pointed out” that “there was once a time when a group of people let immigrants into their country and were wiped out, and we’re celebrating it this Thursday.”

Naturally the smart asses on my Facebook friends’ list and many others thought this was so clever and astute that they posted it on their newsfeeds, patted themselves on their collective backs, rejoiced  at the double digit “likes” they received (as if what they posted was an original thought and not pulled from a meme) and went about their days in a collective self-righteous haze.

Aside from disguising their self loathing under a veil of “human rights interests”, their whole premise is both completely a.)untrue and b.) ironic.

Let’s address point a.  The commonly held belief among Social Justice Warriors, ignoramouses and self-loathing leftists is that, on November 26th, 2015, Americans are once again celebrating a holiday built on a lie, one that makes a light hearted celebration on backs of a bunch of peaceful, dead Indians that the white man slaughtered for his personal and financial gain.  It’s obvious; they gave them a bunch of small pox covered blankets to kill them off and take their land.  On top of that, whoever wasn’t killed by small pox was simply shot dead.

As Steve Crowder’s amusing video points out, Native Americans were not a peaceful people going about their lives before the white man invaded and gave them war.  I mean, it would make sense since, I assume tomahawks are used for something OTHER than chopping trees and the practice of scalping wasn’t invented in the west.  But, even if they just warred among each other, does that give the white man rights to usurp their land?  No, of course not.  Pilgrims made deals with different groups of tribes who were fighting with other groups of tribes for mutual benefit.  And besides, all world history is shrouded in bloodshed on all sides.  What makes this different?

But what about those pesky small pox?  Unless microbiology labs existed where groups of white men created deadly microbes deliberately designed to kill people in the 1700s, I think of this as an exaggerated myth, one with maybe 10% truth.  White men probably brought diseases that did kill a bunch of Native Americans unintentionally.  That fucking sucks.

Are American Indians an oppressed group?  You tell me; if you can prove your Cherokee heritage and someone gives you a free college tuition or you are killing it in the casino business, are you going to complain?  Also, no Indians care about a football team called the Redskins just as much as I wouldn’t care if there was a football team called the New Jersey Hook Noses.

But let’s address point b.

Assuming everything I said about how the white man really wasn’t on a genocidal rampage against the Indians isn’t true and the white man came to the new world, saw a bunch of savages and slaughtered them willy nilly to get the gold, don’t you find it ironic that they’re using THAT as the example of why we SHOULD bring Syrian refugees into the country?

The gap of logic is insane here!  The Indians were wiped out, so as a result, we, the American people deserve a little bit of the wiping as well.  I’ve said it before; the influx of Muslim immigrants into European countries is not a good thing!  Sweden is officially the rape capital of the world and the people raping those fine, buxom broads are not vikings!  Similarly, one only has to look at the no-go zones in France to see that this whole multiculturalism thing doesn’t work.

I honestly think leftists hate themselves so much that they’re willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces.  Sorry, but, I like my big, Jewish nose, so NO THANK YOU!  I’m going to enjoy my post-Thanksgiving hangover in the hopes that I will continue to do so for many years in a country that I still recognize as the United States of America.
