Ta-Nehisi Coates is a Gutless Punk II


Of course. Coates expresses shock that a federal judge forwarded a joke insulting Obama’s mother. And opines the essence of conservatism is “cruelty”. It’s a bit rich, after all the horrendous things said about Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II. I know, I know- there’s no “double standard”, only a standard. But I reject the standard, double or not. Respect is a two-way street and liberals couch their cruelty in righteous indignation- that is too real for Coates’ “dinner party”, as he calls it.

Reciprocity is a fundamental rule of human existence. In game theory, it’s called Prisoner’s Dilemma. Do you trust and reciprocate, or not? The mathematical solution is that you start the game cooperating, then do whatever your opponent does- reciprocate or defect.

I don’t see that anyone not on Obama’s team owes him or his mother any respect. What is the man in question, or any conservative white man of any class, to him? Not even a human being worthy of respect and dignity. Not to his mother or father for that matter. The American version of leftism, the New Deal state, went from a mildly policed big tent to an aggressive neo-Stalinist gangsterism right around the time of his birth. Obama has benefited from this every day of his life, while staying clean enough to hold office in the process. Not very clean, though- evil people like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers have been a big part of his life.

He next comments on Lady Gaga’s anti-bullying campaign. It’s hard to tell just what point he’s making, but it seems to be that it goes much harder for black ghetto kids than white prep school girls. True enough, but what are black people in general, and liberals in general but bullies?

Public schools have been run by liberals for generations, and bullying has been the norm until gays decided to make it an issue in the last year or two. Liberals actually like bullies because while they say they want to help the weak, that is actually the opposite of what they want. They want to recruit strong people to their cause, and bullies are just those sort of people. Beyond raw aggression bullies are usually charismatic and manipulative, and liberals use the same techniques of social manipulation to control people.

Black people love the feeling of power that menacing others gives them. They hurt each other with it more than they hurt white people- they have embraced violence and all the secondary evils that go with it, like arrogance, willful stupidity, the faux-aristocratic charm and condescension that makes their own community far cruder than it needs to be based on their baseline levels of intelligence and impulsiveness. And white and Asian people hate and fear them, with good reason. It’s fun being a bully, if you’re of a more sociopathic nature. The loyalty of black people belongs only to other black people. To criticize or try to control another black person would be disloyal, so they don’t do it. White people are always there to be blamed, so it’s not necessary.

Now he says he’s going to shut off comments altogether. Horror of horrors, someone might disagree with and he wouldn’t be there to immediately delete it.

A system that can’t cope with dissent can’t survive. Ultimately the bottom will fall out. Unfortunately the people who suffer the most will be those who suffered while it was alive, and the people who benefit most will be those who benefited while it was alive- e.g. Russia. So maybe as vile as it is, we should hope it continues. But we don’t really have a choice either way.



About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    I don’t know where to start with Coates. As you mention, he’s the softest internet journalist that I know of. Constantly chiding his commenters to stay civil and such. What the fuck, we’re adults and we can figure out what to let through into our bubble and what to keep out. And then he takes some obscure, mushy angle on a news happening – trying to squeeze something of substance out of it. All of this while his blog posts and his journalism are most devoid of substance out of anyone I read. It’s pure humanistic platitudes.
