Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I saw an article in The Daily Caller
that made me think that an attempt is beginning to fight back against stupidity and error. That
encouraged me greatly. There might even be a way to bring that idea to ATS. It will be a challenge, of course, one might say monumental, but it is
I'll get to that article in a new thread, unless someone has already posted it, but for now let's look at the non sequitur
popping up in this thread.
Would you call them the Nazis? How about the Noosemakers? How about the abortionists? Or any of the other misdirected examples. If those questions
have been thought about, it shows that the people behind them are racist and hate Indians.
Why? Noosemakers, Nazis, Death Camp, or Gas Chamber, all indicate the group did unspeakably horrible things. By comparing the Redskins to the Nazis,
the claim is being made that the Redskins did unspeakably horrible things. Nobody is saying that the Redskins are doing terrible things, the only
people who seem to take that position are those coming off with this strange comparison.
If you had asked me I would be offended by calling them "The murdering savages," of course I would. But note well. I said I would be offended.
Show me that, before the last 6 months, either the American people, or the subset of Indians, were offended by the name. Not the number of leadership
groups. The percentage of people. Show me that it was 51%. Heck, show me honest figures saying that 1/3 of either group thought the team should
change it's name because it was offensive. You can't. Try for 1/4?
We're dealing with manufactured outrage for two reasons. One, if society thinks you're a victim, you can try for special bonuses (maybe even some
cash). Notice that about 1/3 of America is white male (36%). Take away the youth, the Gays, Muslims, and any other group that is a victim and we
have, what 4 victims for every one victimizer? Keep this up and everybody will be a victim making claims on everybody else. Ooops! I forgot the
poor, they're victims. I haven't run the stats, but it looks like 90% of the country are victims.
Secondly, it is both a convenient distraction and a way to reintroduce the word "Racism" into the national discussion. People have given up
defending Obama on the grounds that attacks on him are "Racist." If this keeps up we'll be a people who aren't sweating over race any more.
That would put Sharpton, Farrakhan, in short, the whole racism industry out of work and they'd have to find jobs writing for The New York
, or hosting on MSNBC.
