Talking with Kyle

Here’s a revealing interview with Kyle Rittenhouse, which presents a very different picture from that we’ve received from most of the media for over a year.

Here are some facts you would not have seen on the mainstream media. His gun was legally owned. He went to the scene to help protect a commercial car lot from rioters. He was attacked by rioters, some of whom were also armed, and in the ensuing melee he killed two of the attackers and wounded a third, all in self-defense. The rioters he shot were white, not black, so cries of racism are null and void.

Let’s take a look at the deceased.

  1. Joseph Rosenbaum was a convicted child molester who had spent 14 years in an Arizona prison during which time he committed dozens of disciplinary infractions. At the time of his death, he had pending charges in Wisconsin of domestic abuse and jumping bail.
  2. Anthony Huber had chased Rittenhouse and clobbered him on the back of the head with a skateboard. Rittenhouse in turn clobbered Huber with a bullet to the chest. Huber, like Rosenbaum, was a criminal who had been convicted of domestic abuse and also had been imprisoned for strangling his brother.

The third man shot by Rittenhouse, a bullet to the bicep, was Gaige Grosskreutz. He had approached Rittenhouse during the melee with a pistol in hand that he admitted pointing at Rittenhouse. Grosskreutz had a permit for his gun but it was, alas, expired. Kinda like Rosenbaum and Huber. Expired.

Another famous teenager, Nick Sandmann, also slandered by the mainstream media, sued CNN and The Washington Post, and won fat payouts. Sandmann currently has active lawsuits against other arms of the leftist mainstream media. May he grow filthy rich from doing that.

Rittenhouse will follow Sandmann’s example. May he also grow filthy rich from lawsuits against the leftist media’s lies.

P.S. If you still vote for Democrats, seek help.

Black history month

A black Indian girl. Who knew?

It’s Black History Month in the United Kingdom, but not in the United States and Canada where Black History Month is February, so black history is celebrated not once but twice! How wonderful!

Intelligent people wonder, however, why there is no White History Month, a Brown History Month or an Asian History Month. Where’s the equality, the diversity, the fairness?

It’s because blacks were slaves, you dunce, and merit special attention. But wait! All races have been slaves and all points of the globe have been involved in slavery, up to this very day.

The brilliant Simon Webb, who is an Englishman, has been “celebrating” black history this month with a long series of his perceptive videos regarding the topic.

Here he addresses the current state of descendants of black slaves who were shipped to India. The cutie in the video is one of them. Is Black History Month celebrated in India? Do Indian blacks want reparation cash? Are they disgruntled? Is there an Indian branch of BLM?

None of the above.

They are simply living their lives as other Indians do.

“White Europeans and Americans must somehow be encouraging the victim mentality.”

— Simon Webb

The morning news

This is not me in the photo. Just so you know.

—–

When I lived in Houston, Texas, I worked evenings till about 1 a.m., and I would stay in bed the following morning till around 9. My wife would have already departed for her job, so I would be alone.

She would have scooped up The Wall Street Journal from our suburban lawn and left it inside for me. I would sit in the living room in a wing chair and read it. The previous night I would have read The Houston Chronicle because that’s where I worked.

I wish I still had access to The Wall Street Journal, but I don’t. No physical newspaper awaits me in the mornings because there is no home delivery. I don’t know if there is U.S.-style home delivery anywhere in Mexico. Or if it still exists above the Rio Bravo.

Now I get out of bed about 7 a.m., and I climb the stairs to the second floor, turn on the H-P All-in-One and read the news online. Mostly, I read these three in this order: Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and the New York Post. The last one is more for chuckles than anything.

On very rare occasion, I open The New York Times and The Washington Post if I am curious about the Democrat Party’s line of the day.

This morning, Breitbart tells me the University of Rhode Island has decided not to destroy World War II murals, that Marvel Comics has Captain America saying the American Dream is a lie, that Albuquerque social studies “recommended books” for students are all about “race and queerness,” and that Cori Bush says July 4 is only for white people because black Americans still aren’t free.

This, she says, from her office in the U.S. Congress.

I also learn a Black Lives Matter chapter in Utah deems the American flag a “symbol of hatred.”

I open The New York Times, and see nothing of this. I do read “why record-breaking overnight temperatures are so concerning” and that a 14-year-old has become the first black American to win the spelling bee and that world economic leaders are meeting to finalize a global tax agreement and that “the G.O.P. heads further into the abyss.”

The NYT also seems to think Joe Biden is actually the president instead of being a Deep State figurehead stooge with downward spiraling dementia. And that woman with the desired skin tone and genitalia waits in the warm-up box. She’s known, like a villain in a Batman story, as The Cackler.

I weep for the nation. As should we all.

The cancel-debt nincompoopery

“Cancel police! Cancel student loans! Cancel all bills! Cancel work! Free houses for all! Playtime for all!” These are not words overheard near a group of obnoxious high schoolers, these are the political calls of the modern left. “FREE! FREE! FREE! Everything should be FREE!” These are your elected officials.

“Money doesn’t grow on trees, naive one,” you might say to an immature teenager who asks for free stuff. But what do you say to a fuzzy-brained adult making the same demands, who also happens to have power over your wallet?

An unthinkable conundrum is our reality: the dumbest people in your high school class are now in political power, making the same thoughtless demands they made back when you thought it was just their hormones. 

“I don’t feel like paying my debts because it’s too hard,” is the summary of their I WANT FREE STUFF demand du jour. 

“OK, so who should pay your debts?” you ask. “That’s selfish and racist,” is the response. Seriously.

 The dumbest people in your high school class are now in political power.

This would all be a fantastical, hysterical story, if it were not real.

In anticipation of Biden’s looming presidency, leftists began organizing their FREE STUFF priority lists. On the top of many lists you will find cancellation of student loan debt and free healthcare. Where do they think the money will come from? Why, your wallet, of course! Biden is expected to raise taxes to pay for that “free” stuff. 

Never forget this: the understanding that they must take money from the working to pay for the debts of those not working (or not earning as much) — is in itself proof that they know “free” or “cancel” is a lie. There is no such thing as free because someone always pays for it, and leftists know this. That’s why they call to raise taxes “on the rich” — a puffed lie because it is not wealth that is taxed yearly, but earnings, income, work product. It is work that is taxed, not “wealth.” 

The cunning leftist thieves in charge know what they are doing — committing theft. And like all good thieves, they lie to cover it up. Their constituency, mentally debilitated after years of brainwashing and indoctrination in leftist-run schools, doesn’t ask questions; the lemmings trust and follow and echo.

So what can you do? How can you reason with leftists? Short answer — you can’t. How can you make overgrown children see the flaws of their reasoning? Same answer — you can’t. 

Intellectual conservatives have spent a great deal of time trying to figure out how to reason with socialist lemmings. There is a narcissistic aspect to the idea that you can figure out a way to change leftist minds. They wasted precious time. Socialist ideology grew like a weed while they were busy using a thesaurus to more authoritatively instruct us on how to argue with the left.

Yes, there were some leftists and Democrats who changed their views. But it wasn’t intellectual conservatives who made that happen, it was the individuals themselves. Those individuals experienced rationality competing with their leftist politics and rationality simply won the internal tug-of-war. 

Past efforts to convince the left of their irrationality are a sunk cost. What’s lost is done. We need to move on.

But I digress. Back to thieves and lemmings. 

If we can’t reason with them, what can we do? We must stop them. There is no middle-ground position on this. A middle ground position with the neoleft means we must take a bunch of steps to the left to meet them half-way on an outlandish demand. Why would we do that? What has middle-ground politics brought us? It’s brought us closer and closer to socialism, which is now threatening us literally at our front door. We can’t afford to let it get any closer. There is no room for negotiation. There is only room for a solid NO.

To “cancel student loan debt” — just say no.

To “free healthcare for all” — just say no.

And so on and so forth.

Don’t negotiate. Just say no. Protect America.
