An open post to morons, ignoramuses and wankers.
But before I begin, here’s a tweet this morning from John Durant. You know, the guy in The New York Times, then on The Colbert Report, and who is still mystified that I can’t recall him from Art De Vany’s Las Vegas conference where I was kinda all into myself and not him. Love John, his sister Maggie, too, whom I had lunch with in SJ and who was then a fellow torturee at MovNat for a week.

11+ = @rnikoley
John has a book coming out (I have a Galley copy) that all of you are going to buy and read, because it’s not bullshit, it’s not another fucking…FUCKING paleo Cookbook of the week…and it’s most certainly not by a publisher doing its best to flood the market with “paleo books” so its authors work to the bone and make shit, mostly. Alright I fiinally said it, though I still pick and choose, highlight and review my pics and will continue to do so as long as I’m getting 1-2 new books in the mail per week. Love. Hate. Y’know?
Having lived half my life in the Middle East, I am especially sensitive to recognizing fake outrage and shaming forced upon ordinary people by the social system. Every society uses shaming to define its morality, but some societies go too far in using and abusing shaming words that make people cringe and shrink whenever they are mentioned. Such intentional shaming is often fake and bogus done for the purpose of manipulating and controlling others. In America, expressions like ‘racist’ and in the Muslim world expressions like ‘apostate’ can do the trick of silencing citizens and keep them muzzled and beaten down.
The Muslim world is at the top of the list of cultures that perfected the art of fake and exhibitionist outrage and shaming to prevent the natural mental evolution of people to go to the next level and evolve beyond old baggage. […]
The activist Left is determined to rub America’s nose periodically to the ground to keep leverage over their opposition and continue the profitable business of race politics. It is embarrassing and difficult to see the Left using every shaming tool to preserve their sacred cow accusations of racism for the sake of winning elections. It does not matter to race baiters that the American people will become enslaved by the tyranny of shaming and will never move beyond the guilt over slavery, which was a worldwide phenomenon not only between black and white but more often within the same race. […]
We now have a whole new generation of young Americans who would rather defend terrorists and criminals rather than being called racists or bigot.
We now also have TV anchors and hosts who are behaving on camera like obedient little boys and girls who get outraged over nonsense and stay unmoved to outrage. […]
The American psyche, its innocence and respect for free thinking have be greatly harmed by the growing culture of shaming, name calling, intimidation and fake outrage. Perhaps Tahrir Square in Egypt today stands as a symbol of what can happen to a people who fall victim to the tyranny of shaming to form a stranglehold on an entire culture.
The word ‘racist’ has become meaningless and an insult to the intelligence of the majority of Americans who deserve better. Just like the dreaded word ‘apostate’ thrown all the time in the Muslim world. Reasonable people are offended by the use of the word racist in America and the use of the word apostate in Muslim countries.
Knock yourselves out, commies. I’ll fuckin’ Take Romney and his Mormon-ons, or Huckabee and his morons over that morons, any day.
OK, take it away, morons, ignoramuses and wankers. I live in a world of mostly moron and I’ll never stop talking about it.
One embarrassed mind at a time is all I want.
