with David Blaska

Madison remains peaceful (and inspired!) after white privilege conference

(page 2 of 2)

Janesville sent 12 district teachers and 96 students, paid for by grant money.

“Shopping at a department store without being watched by clerks or going to a barbershop and knowing the barber will know how to cut your hair are just two examples of little things that add up,” a professional diversity enforcer told The Janesville Gazette. Come to think of it, Floyd the Barber WAS white!

News flash: you don’t have to be racist to call the White Privilege Conference pure bunkum — although organizers and attendees would probably ascribe racism to any criticism.

“You want to really do something? Educate a black kid,” said the head of the Congress of Racial Equality. (“Black civil rights leader slams white privilege conference.”) “Give parents and students an opportunity to go to a private, parochial or a good public school.”

The Beatles White Album — more white privilege?

Liberal policies have destroyed the black family,” by Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke.

These watered-down student codes of conduct sweeping across urban public school systems will not help black parents, kids or communities. Like every other display of liberal empathy, they will have a reverse effect, and it will not be positive.

White privilege may be insidious. Like Mary Burke’s jobs plan, we can’t see it; we just have to believe it. But stupidity is contagious. Political in-breeding prevents alternate ideologies from invigorating the species.

Just imagine if Paul Ryan and Bill Cosby had been invited, or Dr. Ben Carson and Sheriff Clarke. The privileged white people who besieged the State Capitol in 2011 would attempt to shut down the city. No dissension allowed in the People’s Republic! The vuvuzelas have spoken!

Admitted to White Guilt Conference: the above-named reporter who wrote “Record crowd informed, inspired at White Privilege Conference in Madison.” And $230 to $370 lighter in the wallet!

Denied: a more skeptical news outlet, The Wisconsin Reporter.

If someone could invent a way to harness the inexhaustible supply of misplaced liberal guilt as an energy source, they would become a billionaire overnight and America's energy needs would be met for the next 250 years. All you would need to prime the pump for this hand wringing energy dynamo would be to put enough liberals in front of TV screens showing CNN, MS-NBC, The View, and other assorted propaganda vehicles of liberal fiction.

Liberals feel bad about themselves and project this on their community, their country and the world and find them all pretty bad. Then they congratulate themselves on their sensitivity and can decry a conservative as apathetic. Liberals feel bad and believe everyone else should as well. It is much easier to struggle against racism, sexism, homophobia and global warming then to reform one's own personal failings. It is much easier to march and dialogue and meet than to educate one child.

Blaska calls the widely beloved and immensely popular Charles Barkley "barely articulate" and then trumpets the self-aggrandizing Milwaukee County Sheriff.

Who's living in a reality-based world these days, Dave?

As for the WPC: Black kids in this city are NOT being educated, cared for, boosted or even told they can succeed. Who's guilty of that? White people. Should they not confront the role they play in this?

This blog has turned into nifty little tweets of outrage.

If someone could invent a way to harness the tired right wing ideology of not coming up with any solutions except to blame liberals into an energy source they would become a billionaire overnight and America's energy needs would be met for the next 250 years.

It should have been called the Liberal White Guilt Conference. As a conssrvative, I understand that blacks (and other minorities) are just as intelligent and capable as whites. Only liberals think they are less capable than whites.
