Thoughts On A Sunday

As I know many of you (all 17 of you reading this blog) may have noticed, I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do. Between a heavier workload at my primary job and additional work at my secondary job, I am generally busy 12+ hours a day, 6 days a week. On the ‘free’ day I have I am usually busy around The Gulch, helping the WP Mom clean the house, making a dump run, a Walmart run, a Tractor Supply Company run, a grocery run, or any other duties or chores needing to be done. It doesn’t leave me nearly enough time to take care of things like starting up a new business (in the works), working on my third novel, or blogging.

Once we get past mid-March I’ll be back to a normal workload (whatever ‘normal’ is these days) and I can devote more time to this...and corresponding with one of the WP Nieces with whom I have been discussing and debating the events taking place as well as politics, ideology, and history.


This must be true...or rather, it needs to be true, at least for President *, AOC, and the DNC-MSM propaganda machine.

DHS has released a statement reporting that “right-wing extremists were responsible for the majority of fatal domestic terrorist attacks last year.”

But there’s a problem with that statement, being that “It’s long on vague assertions and decidedly short on facts.” “...as Yahoo News points out, “the government has released no data on historical activity or the current threat landscape.” Apparently we’re just supposed to take their word for it.”

The attacks by antifa and BLM – hence referred to as “Burn, Loot, and Murder” – are downplayed, minimized, if not devoutly ignored by the media, local government, and bought-and-paid-for DA’s and prosecutors (elected using George Soros’s money). While some members of antifa and BLM hew to their original raison d'être, both organizations have abandoned any pretense and are openly Marxist, anti-government, anti-capitalist, and anti-constitutionalist. The leaders now come right out to say their purpose is to dismantle the country. Of course they don’t say what they’ll replace it with, but then the New Bolsheviks rarely do.


Remember this?

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

With the push to force Critical Race Theory down everyone’s throat, that dream is dead.

Under Marx’s Critical Race Theory (also used by the National Socialists in Germany), just the opposite is pushed: The color of one’s skin is the most important thing as it defines who you are. Rather than uniting people, it divides them, separates them, limits them. But to hear the proponents tell it, this racist theory is the only way to solve the racism problem.

Excuse me? The only way to solve racism is to commit racism?

This issue has become more telling when Jody Shaw, a staff member at Smith College in western Massachusetts, resigned in protest over the college’s “hostile atmosphere”.

It appears that Ms. Shaw ran afoul of critical race theory fanatics who forced her to “participate in racially prejudicial behavior as a condition” of her employment.

Shaw, being a normal, intelligent, woman rebelled. She blew the whistle on the racialists at Smith College in a scathing video she posted to YouTube.

“I ask that Smith College stop reducing my personhood to a racial category. Stop telling me what I must think and feel about myself,” she said. “Stop presuming to know who I am or what my culture is based upon my skin color. Stop asking me to project stereotypes and assumptions onto others based on their skin color.”

This is the essence of critical race theory. In order to make “progress” in “combatting racism,” everyone is reduced to a stick figure. It’s so much easier to define individuals when you identify them as members of a specific group, with specific beliefs, biases, prejudices.

In her resignation letter to the university president, she didn’t pull any punches.

Every day, I watch my colleagues manage student conflict through the lens of race, projecting rigid assumptions and stereotypes on students, thereby reducing them to the color of their skin. I am asked to do the same, as well as to support a curriculum for students that teaches them to project those same stereotypes and assumptions onto themselves and others. I believe such a curriculum is dehumanizing, prevents authentic connection, and undermines the moral agency of young people who are just beginning to find their way in the world.

It’s important that we realize that this didn’t have to happen. Small-minded, even ignorant people see salvation in controlling the minds and lives of others. Is it a mass delusion that they believe they are actually “fighting racism,” that they’re doing this for white people’s own good? Or are these the same efforts at control that have been around since humans created civilizations?

Fighting racism by committing acts of racism?

Yeah...that’ll work.


And that’s the abbreviated news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where winter weather keeps coming and going, we’re in the midst of the second week of February school vacations (Massachusetts last week, New Hampshire this week), and the ski areas are very busy.
