Headline Rhymes

A slogan I hear screamed loudly these days conflates white silence with violence

But speak up and stray from the pre-approved script and you’re part of a Nazi alliance

Views on the news, delivered in twos. This week’s inspired by:

The Preachers of the Great Awokening

Politics Are Not the Sum of a Person

    Okay, Graham, re ‘Preachers of the Great Awokening’, and [no kidding] true story:

    This week I got upbraided by a very woke black rabbi on Twitter;
    He assumed ‘white’ Jews feel superior and was doctrinaire, angry, and bitter.

    (The exchange sharply reminded me why I like to avoid ‘preachers’ of any and all denominations, haha! Nobody is bridge-building these days!)

  2. Sydney says

    From Trudeau’s Canada, on ‘Politics Are Not the Sum of a Person’:

    Easy to say that politics aren’t everything and we should chill with friendly conversation;
    Until you’re being led by a Jihad-friendly trust-funder who is taking apart your nation.

    (And from that piece, how is comedian Chris Rock apolitical? In his last Netflix special he laughed that he wanted to see ‘white kids’ shot dead and ‘white mothers’ crying. Check it out. Someone even Youtubed it. I was never sure why he got a pass for that.)

    Bluestockings, Jacobins, scolds who patrol us;
    Save us from these, and all tics of the polis

      There we go! That’s a good one. There’s a lot going on in there! 🙂
