You Seem to Be Forgetting Something, Egghead

Sorry about the lack of posting, but His Imperial Majesty has been laid low for quite a bit with some strange, infernal Etruscan plague that has kept him from being of much use to anybody, other than the Imperial Executioner who, thanks to His Majesty’s sour mood, has been quite busy.

(H/t Jazz Shaw at Hot Gas).

Some liberal egghead ponders why those damn “disenfranchised yoots” won’t get up and have a good old fashioned car-b-que or maybe some blowing up and murdering of law enforcement personnel.

We could be wrong here, but it looks like the good perfesser is yearning for the wasted days of his misguided youth but too fat and cowardly to do something about it, thus leading him to longing for somebody else to go out there and do it for him. Then again, His Imperial Majesty could be entirely wrong, even though he hardly ever is.

Athens is on fire again. London combusted last summer, right around the same time violent protesters assembled in the streets of manufacturing cities in southern China. And then there was Paris in 2005. In many ways, it’s curious this hasn’t happened more recently in U.S. cities (or with the Occupy movement for that matter).

“Alienation, youth unemployment, distrust of police,” says University of Pennsylvania historian Michael Katz, “these things are surely as prevalent in the U.S. as they were in France.”

So why won’t those damn Occutards go out there and kill them some po-pos, burn down some properties and maybe throw in some rapes as well (wait, they already did, minus the killing of the po-po, though it wasn’t for lack of trying) so a poor perfesser can get some fodder to write theses about? Never mind, we’ll just write one about why they don’t create sufficient mayhem. For Social Justice and the Childerrrrn™, of course.If anything, the conditions that fuel urban violence – income inequality, poverty, joblessness – are as disheartening in America as ever, in the wake of a deep recession.

“So why,” Katz asks, “had collective violence more or less disappeared from the streets of American cities?”

He tackles this question in a new book, Why Don’t American Cities Burn?, which he discussed Friday in Washington at a forum hosted by the New America Foundation. What’s so striking about his answer is that many of the trends implicated in our quiet streets are not necessarily good ones. It’s true, American cities aren’t burning. But we shouldn’t pat ourselves on the back just yet.

Some of Katz’ explanations are good news: Previously marginalized groups that once felt they had no other outlet now have more voices in the political process. White flight ceded whole cities – and their governments – to African Americans in the U.S. And this left neighborhood boundaries less contentious, Katz argues, eliminating one of the causes of urban friction.

Ghettoization, forming the spawning ground for “community organizers” is Good News?™

“I have a dream!” sure doesn’t seem to mean what it used to mean but, in leftist parlance, “as long as it keeps the darkies to themselves on the plantation, it’s all good.”

In the 1960s, by contrast, large numbers of African Americans were moving into the city at a time when whites had not yet left.

Minorities are also more incorporated into high-end jobs, universities and neighborhoods today. Katz adds, though, that this selective incorporation (which has benefited black women much more than men) has fractured minority communities, and eroded their potential for collective action.

And there it is again: “Fracturing minority communities” (ProgNazi Speak for “integration into society on an equal footing”) is a BAAAAAD thing (and quite possibly raaaaacist too!), whereas keeping the “colored folks” isolated in dismal ghettos where they’re easily identified, categorized, tagged and controlled is a GOOOOOD thing. Double-plus-super-good, as a matter of fact.

You know, you have to give the ProgNazis credit where credit is due. Seriously. Since His Imperial Majesty clings bitterly to the now archaic notion that all men are created equal and that the inherent qualities and potentials of individuals are in no way linked to the colour of their skin (yes, raaaaacist, we know!), and since the explanation therefore can’t be that “minorities” are innately retarded, it’s nothing short of fascinating to us how the ProgNazis have somehow managed to make themselves into the banner-bearers for “racial equality” while, at the same time, declaring that anything, anything that might allow said minorities to just mingle with the rest of society is a Bad Thing™ that is to blame for all of our ills.

Even the old time racist Democrats of the Confederate South weren’t that that shameless a bunch of liars.

Some of his other explanations are decidedly more troubling. Populations that once rioted have now joined the “consumer republic,” in which more people are able to buy material symbols of the good life, if not the good life itself.

The HORROR! People being allowed and, gasp, capable of buying stuff they like and enjoying life? It must be STOPPED, right NOW!

Of course, the logic is sound from a ProgNazi point of view. Anybody who has even the slightest familiarity with mass movements, True Believers and Cloward-Piven knows full well that you can’t truly start fucking things up as long as somebody, somewhere might possibly be enjoying themselves. You need a huge mass of malcontents yearning for meaning in their otherwise hopelessly drab and pointless lives in order to truly get the Proletariat moving. Just ask that great ProgNazi guru, Adolf Hitler.

If you are beginning to wonder why every single policy of the NSDWP seems to increase the number of people who are just about ready for anything, as long as it pulls them out of the misery they currently inhabit (and preferably involves snappy uniforms with nice boots and shirts and armbands) congratulations! You’re actually paying attention.

President Food Stamp is President Food Stamp for a reason.

Authorities have ramped up their surveillance and control tactics – along with the country’s prison population – which puts a damper on organizing in the first place.

Oh sure. The prisons are positively overflowing with Occutards. Pull the other one, mate.

And Katz points in particular to a general de-politicization in American life that undercuts communities’ likelihood for civil action. It’s not that our urban problems have gone away (while they remain in Athens, London and Paris). But some of the capacity to fight them has.

Which is exactly the point that the egghead moron in his ivory tower completely missed, as alluded to in our headline: It’s not that the capacity to fight has “gone away.” That capacity is very much alive and well and has actually increased quite a bit since Chocolate Jesus was crowned by an adoring media, it’s that it’s in the hands of people who are very much averse to violent rampages, civil disorder, murder, rape and the destruction of property. We cordially invite Herr Katz to come take a look at our personal “capacity to fight”. We’ll even supply a free change of pants from Wal*Mart, which he’ll surely need before he even gets to The Good Stuff™.

The Occutards don’t get that, except for the bit about them being outgunned. They know that quite well, which is why we don’t have that much trouble with them in states that are still free.

You can’t counter that commitment to law and order and property rights with papier mache dolls and sub-retarded chants.

“A people united” only makes for a much more target rich environment. Shooting fish in a barrel, we like to call it.

And that’s the real reason the ProgNazi goon squads haven’t had much success in this country. They know full well that any attempt of theirs to truly “get jiggy with it” will only result in a massive rise in the stock value of whatever company produces body bags.

That’s what’s truly pathetic about Comrade Ogabe and his ProgNazi Movement’s attempt to “fundamentally transform” America. If that room temperature IQ Chicago ward heel had ever bothered to open an actual history book as opposed to taking it up his adolescent sphincter from his kiddy-diddling Marxist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, while snorting coke he would know that the first thing you need to do to subjugate a population is to take away their means of defending themselves. It’s not an afterthought, it is the very first step you need to take.

Because if you don’t, you’re just tomorrow’s worm food.

Thatisall.
