Pleasures Of The Tormentor

     Just a quickie today, as I have a great deal to do and very little time in which to do it. First, read this story. Reflect in particular upon the perverse pleasure Jim Galligan got from ruining a young girl’s college prospects...possibly for good. It’s a case study in self-preening assumptions of moral superiority.

     Galligan is not unique; far from it. There are endless Galligans out there, willing to destroy anyone and anything they can tar with even the palest, least plausible smear. Doing harm to others makes them feel good about themselves. It reinforces that assumption of moral superiority. One of the key questions of our time is how to defeat them. There are only two ways:

  1. Punish them and those who kowtow to them;
  2. Laugh at them and go unconcernedly about your business.

     Nothing else has worked to date. As this is a component in my public order tirade, I exhort my Gentle Readers to ponder it in the light of the observations in that piece.

     But second and arguably even more important, the enveloping problem is one of encroaching linguistic appropriation and censorship. The only way to defeat that is to defy it utterly and stand your ground.

     It speaks volumes to me that Andrea Widburg, the author of the piece linked above, was unwilling to type nigger explicitly in her American Thinker essay. Perhaps she genuinely believes it’s unacceptably offensive. Or perhaps she’s shy about using a “banned” word. In either case, it constitutes a moral default, and here is the reason:

Negroes use nigger frequently among themselves.

     Note that I refuse to call them “African Americans,” just as I refuse to call Amerinds “Native Americans.” They’re Negroes, have been since anthropologists first studied racial classifications and distinctions, and Negroes they will remain. Moreover, this mick-wop honky doesn’t concede anyone the power to ban or “privatize” a word. Neither does my kike wife.

     Do as your conscience directs, always, but please, for the sake of freedom, give at least some thought to the issues here. As for Jim Galligan, he deserves to be tarred, feathered, and ridden out of the country on a rail, and I hope someone geographically well placed for the task will see to it. If he doesn’t like my saying that, he can feel free to call me whatever he likes!

I read a lot of comments on his channel. They all mean the same thing. Karma is a bitch and he will get his due to his immaturity which will help him grow up a little bit but has a long way to go.

"Groves, more mature and indoctrinated than in 2016, went on social media to urge people to support the Black Lives Movement."

Eh, my sympathy meter would read a lot higher for a victim who was not a manipulated fool.

Your two remedies are correct, though.

Look at the bright side: a good way to break through her indoctrination. Maybe she'll learn a thing or two about this world.

Paul, you have an absolutely reliable penchant for missing the point. So what if the poor girl was bludgeoned into a misstep by our standards? She's a genuine fucking victim of genuine fucking left-wing malevolence. That, and only that, is what matters.

Try to stay better focused if you want to retain your commenting privileges here.

Words only gain power when banned,etc. Being a normal (or mostly so) person I use whatever word or words I choose. Also I don't get offended at whichever word others choose.
