Clowning the Os
Who has not heard about the "iniquitous", white (and therefore guilty -- like Zimmerman, who of course is not white, but never mind) rodeo clown who donned an Obama mask?
Who has not gotten wind of the Ruling Aristocrat Oprah Winfrey's manufacture of a "racist victimization incident" with a Swiss sales clerk?
In consideration of the content of many conservative articles and comments on the subjects, I am going to be so bold as to suggest that many conservatives still do not want to come to grips with the true function of racial discourse in this country.
As a consequence, many conservative responses are as naïve as they are myopic.
Protestations of the form "look at the Bush masks; look all the Bush hate; the sales clerk wasn't a racist after all and Oprah should apologize" are fruitless, and will continue to be fruitless until matters are set right.
Matters are not going to be set right until Americans take fully on board the brute fact that the "dialogue" on race in this country is, quite literally, psychotic.
That this is so is easily seen by reflection that, for example, the racial "dialogue" we've been hectored about for several decades is in reality no "dialogue" at all; it is a monologue imposed by the powerful in order to decimate the values and individuality of the powerless.
When reality itself is completely contradicted by the description of it and the description is resolutely adhered to anyway, what you have is -- psychosis.
In the current historical moment, the psychosis is quite functional: it serves to facilitate "progress" toward full blown Marxo-Fascism.
Why was the rodeo clown branded a racist? Why did the MSM fail to question the veracity of Oprah's confabulation? Why was Zimmerman tried?
Because under Marxo-Fascism, individuals do not matter -- unless, of course, you are a member of the Ruling Class -- which is why, for example, people like Hypocrite Harry Reid feel no pressure to step down and support a minority candidate.
Thus, from the controlling vantage point of the Rulers, when the rodeo clown woke up on that "fateful" day, he was of course the same being he was when he fell asleep, which is to say either an overt racist, or a latent racist whose racism was, due to either the passage of time or the merest of deviations from Marxist script, invariably going to manifest itself.
With respect to the sales clerk (Adriana N.), she clowned Oprah, as the above linked article shows.
The sales clerk stood her ground and insisted that her engagement with the minority titan was entirely proper.
The titan lied, and might have destroyed a life, but nonetheless Adriana N. is not going to receive anything approaching a sincere apology from power.
Again, power has not seen fit to constitute either the sales clerk or the rodeo clown as individuals.
Because the Establishment view on race relations is psychotic and immune to consequences, it is "free" (in the way psychotic criminals are "free") to substitute fantasy for reality on issues of race.
That is, to the system, the rodeo clown and the sales clerk are mere placeholders; ciphers, or random variables, if you will.
If the first random white is not literally a racist, who cares -- the next one will be, and what's the first going to do about the false allegation? And, once more, what psychotic cares about the "literal" anyway?
Hence, what was in their hearts and minds is, according to Marxo-Fascism, wholly irrelevant, since no matter what resided in those places, there are surely tens of millions of other sets of hearts and minds wherein subsists evil worse than murder.
Surely there are tens of millions of racist white sales clerks and rodeo clowns in the suburbs of America!
The proof of this, of course, is that if these people were not racist, they would not live in the suburbs -- they would live in Detroit, which is, incidentally, where the clown Obama takes his "working" vacations, isn't it?
What was once the radical, collectivist view on race relations -- as exemplified by what looks to have been a terrorist act and a thoroughly hypocritical act committed by the sitting United States Attorney General Eric Holder -- is now the Establishment view, and that therefore what is really in the hearts and minds of people with respect to race is, from a historical point of view, completely irrelevant.
In the minds of these radicals, all roads are racialized, and all racialized roads must lead to one destination and one destination only: equality of outcome (excepting the 1% Rulers, of course) --which, by the way, is, beyond any dispute whatsoever, a socialist idea.
Thus, trillions of dollars and decades of affirmative action programs related to education, employment, and business have proven not to be enough, and so what is needed now is yet another dose of affirmative action whereby housing outcomes are to be racially engineered by the federal government.
This is of course strongly suggestive of the notion that behind the manufacturing of victims such as Trayvon lies hostility to liberty.
In sum, it is a brute fact that the collectivist cabals that compose the federal government and subsidiary holdings such as the MSM have determined that conservatives and libertarians are racists no matter what they say or do.
So what are conservatives going to do about it?
If the Marxo-Fascist dictator and his followers do not like certain sales clerks or rodeo clowns of the world, we might ask whether it is because they do not like being clowned, and, similarly, whether it is because they do not like clowns.
It would be decidedly odd if either if these possibilities were true.
