I don’t necessarily like writing this one, but perhaps it should be in print here.
My last post seems to have gotten quite a few pairs of panties all twisted up in a knot.
After giving my opinion of a David Duke video, and in fact, my opinion of him generally, I seem to have opened a container of crawly things.
The opinions that I expressed, I thought, were nothing more than common sense. But apparently not.
I will admit here and now that I do not publish all comments. Sorry if that offends some. But start your own website about such a controversial subject as I have taken upon my mantle, and see how much…well, “undesirable” commentary that it can attract. Most that I do not publish is just disruptive. I don’t know what motivates some to make such commentary, but frankly I don’t care. I just don’t waste your time by putting it up.
But at times I will include an abusive comment or two that illustrate a point which I might be trying to make in an article. I think Blogger would shut me down if I posted all the comments that I got over the Duke-Dumb piece however…for exceeding space concerns…or general profanity. Well, in a way that may be a good thing. The fact that I am at least moving a varied “multicultural” readership to such participation.
But it was a bit negatively enlightening as well. That so many people like Duke, identify with their “race” or ethnicity, or culture or whatever moniker you wish apply to these differences in humans upon which so many wish to hang their hats. A bit scary really. Kind of like lifting a rock and seeing all the varied species of bugs underneath. No. Actually those bugs get along better. The picture posted over there on the right has a special meaning to me. It is a popular image. As a kid, I am sure that I saw that tree thousands of times as I walked around the square in which it grew. The fact that there in the town in which I was born was host to this, the last public lynching in the Northern United States…hard-wired a disdain for those that talk about “race” as if it was something to be considered important. I learned from this photo and the scourge that it left on my little community how important race is to those willing to be stirred by such superficial differences in humans. Hell of a “heritage”, huh. These primal emotions are being stirred at all times by the jewish powers that be. They foment this type of hatred…and they LOVE it. This is where parking your chapeau on your race and your ethnicity will lead you. It is a slippery slope…race. So excuse me if I see stupidity in anything that touts heritage and racial purity. It comes from some rather unsavory childhood memories. I tried to state that in the Duke article…I guess some didn’t want to hear it.
In college, that article and even this follow-up one, would be known as a “weed-out” course. A first class in a particular discipline that gets to the heart of the matter…one that unless you can pass…you aren’t going any further. It doesn’t get any tougher than this course. But you should understand that this is the tone of anything further.
I have stated that over this past year that I have been scribbling these things here, that I have apparently come to some unpopular opinions about things over my life, and I intend to express them. Chips falling where they will, I don’t buy into anyone’s philosophy wholeheartedly…but my own. “To thine own self be true.”..all that. You are not required to agree. You could keep a civil tongue…but even that isn’t compulsory. I don’t offend easily. But I am often amazed at the short-sightedness of some. Things that to me, are simple human concerns seem to evade so many. Oh well.
So…for newbies here: This is not a news site. It is an opinion page. My opinion. I don’t race around the net collecting all those great items that I love to read…I leave that to those that I admire for their vigilance. I will often express my social and political opinion by reprinting such articles, vids…whatever…if it tickles my fancy. Or if I think such a piece requires more exposure, or can illustrate a point which I want to make. Other than that, I don’t subscribe. To magazines. To political camps. Race. Religion. To anything which requires any type of compromise of the things that I hold to be true. I am not sorry if this offends some. Offense is something that should be sorted…and more often than not, it is in the eye of the offended, not the offender. That is to say that people will often look to be offended(gosh, I wonder where they have been told that that is ok?) just to claim victim-hood. Oh please. Get over yourselves, I say. Stop acting like a bunch of jews.
