All Aboard the Redline Express

I think with every new post I write about politics, I think I'm going to start a list of talking points words. Words that the media presses so hard to let us know that they are on message. They repeat them to the point that every day people start using them and some thoughts become defacto instead of suspect.

The words for this week boys and girls:

redline
radicalized
terrorists

When you hear these words repeated, over and over again, across every network, there is a rich white guy somewhere who is rubbing his wallet. His various media teams and think tanks are high-fiving themselves at getting the word out and co-opting yet a few more terms for the Doublespeak cause. The Pentagon looks the sequester and budget cuts and laughs. They'll be rolling in cash again any day now. It's just a matter of time.

When you hear these words, you should realize that the American Propaganda machine is in full effect and immediately switch to MeTV where you can watch the full swing of American propoganda in it's heyday. When it was ok to hate Indians and Mormons (I had no idea how much Mormons were hated back in the day until I saw a western show the other day. No wonder Romney lost) and black people were almost barely tolerable.

So our usual cheerleaders for war are cheerleading for war. Syria crossed the line we drew in sand and by jingo, we're Americans. We don't take that crap. You can't cross the lines we draw, knock the block off our shoulder and blow up little white kids in one of the most racist cities in America and expect us to take it! No sirree!

This. Means. War.

We have to blow up children over there so they don't blow them up over here.
The only choice we have is to blow up people. There is no other way.

Accidentally on Purpose

Just a couple of quick comments on the "Accidental Racist" song since I know you're just dying to know what I think about this whole fiasco.

1. The song is complete and utter racist bullshit.
LL Cool J says the song is about forgiveness. I didn't know that I needed to be forgiven by white people for their fucked up racism, but, uh, ok.

2. The song is complete and utter racist bullshit - I don't care if Harriet Tubman herself comes back from the grave and starts rapping along with LL. It's some racist bullshit. And I don't give a shit what this article says, Brad Paisley is a racist.

If you really want to know why it's racist bullshit, I suggest you start reading because I'm not going to explain it to you.

There's a new category of links over to in my sidebar called "Saving My Sanity Against Racism". You should read them all.

I read these sites everyday because sometimes, the only thing standing between me going to jail for assault and being cool like Fonzie and just saying, Heeeyyyyy, and taking the peaceful road like my man Jules Winfield from Englewood and walking the Earth like Cain from Kung Fu is these websites. Yes, I'm saying it. The only thing that keeps me from pimp slapping the shit out of some white people sometimes is remembering what I read on Abagond and Field Negro. White people can really piss me off sometimes. They can hurt my feelings. They can completely dehumanize me. And these are my friends. Strangers....good Lord, you just don't want to know. If you're white, I know that sounds angry to you. I wish I really cared.

Again, I'm not going to explain to you why the song is racist. But once you read all the links on the "Saving My Sanity Against Racism" list you might just get it.  If you're too busy for that and just want a crash course in Racism 101, you can read, THIS and THIS.

Go ahead, I'll wait...
