Don’t Know Much About History

Earlier today, my podcasting partner Stacy McCain put up a post about Whoopi Goldberg’s massively misinformed comments about racism and the Holocaust. He noted that “insiders” at ABC wanted some sort of discipline for Goldberg.

The NY Post is reporting that she has been suspended from The View because of her remarks.

BTW, I hate Illinois Nazis too.

At the Intersection of All Things

Noted warmmonger Gina McCarthy, who ran Obama’s EPA, has been appointed as His Fraudulency’s National Climate Advisor. She posted a video over the past weekend making the pitch that climate change is a racism/social justice issue. No verifiable facts were offered to support any of her claims.

One of the claims that she makes is that the Xiden climate program will result in the creation of good paying “union jobs.” 27 states have right-to-work laws that allow people to work without having to join a union, and very few of those states cast electoral votes for Joe Xiden. Is this “union jobs” claim a threat to shift economic activity away from those states to punish them? Would that be socially just?

Another claim is that the Xiden climate program will leverage existing technologies. OK, how will the administration deal with the problems created by those technologies? The blades from worn-out wind turbines are going into land fills because there is no economically viable way of recycling them. Solar arrays that have reached the end of their useful lives are beginning to pile up, creating a significant amount of waste that includes heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, and cadmium. Will racial and social justice require this waste to be disposed of in Palo Alto, Belle Meade, Stamford, or Bethesda?

And back to those union jobs? Where will they really be, and what will they be doing? Under the Xiden program, they won’t be for pipe fitters building pipelines in the middle of America. When Gina McCarthy was running the EPA, American labor saw a lot of “clean energy” jobs making equipment such as solar panels and wind turbines move offshore, principally to China. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, but usual the safe way to bet.

Is it 2025 yet?

Meanwhile, at the SPLC …

… there’s been a bit of a shakeup. The left-wing hate group has fired its founder and airbrushed his bio from their website. Morris Dees’ sudden transition to unpersonhood has been met with smiles for the karmic irony by some, including my podcasting partner Stacy McCain.

Newsbusters reports that SPLC internal emails have surfaced that contain “complaints regarding sexual harassment and racial biases in promotion and hierarchy.” Of course, such complaints are grounds for firing in the current SJW environment, but in Dees’ case they’re not new. Similar allegations appeared in the Montgomery Advertiser in 1994.

Why fire Dees now?

Discovery. The SPLC settled one lawsuit for over 3,000,000 bucks rather than go through the discovery process and trial. There are other suits pending, and the discovery process can be messy, especially if one has something to hide. It may be that they think that throwing their founder under the bus will appease their critics and moderate their losses. If that’s the case, they don’t understand how people on the right think.

Stay tuned.

Sarah Jeong, The New York Times, and Twitter

Alinsky’s Rule 4 state:

Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.

I’ve rather enjoyed the brouhaha over Sarah Jeong’s Twitter history and her hiring by the NYT. As noted by other commenters, the Times knew about her tweets when they hired her, and they brought on board anyway. Indeed, it appears that her tweets were not considered a bug but a feature. So if she’s a racist, one can assume that she’s the good kind of racist of which the NYT approves.

UPDATE—This is from a 2016 piece about the alt-right.

True bigotry is often excused as nothing more than crude humor or nihilistic trolling … To them, it’s humor. To everyone else, it’s hate.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

It was pretty obvious from the load of … ah … junk he gave us in discovery for the Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit that The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin didn’t understand the rules of evidence or how to properly structure his case. He proved both during the trial. For example, consider this question he was never able to ask of Stacy McCain because it dealt with hearsay.

MR. KIMBERLIN: So do you know what the Southern Poverty Law Center is?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection Your Honor.

THE COURT: What does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well Mr. McCain has —

THE COURT: The Southern Poverty Law Center, what does that have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr. McCain is considered a neo-confederate — is one —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Well —

MR. KIMBERLIN: And the Southern Poverty Law Center

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Hold on a second. Counsel I appreciate you objecting to my question but I’m not going to overrule myself. That’s not something I do. So what does the Southern Poverty Law Center have to do with this case? I’m not asking you about Mr. McCain, I’m asking you about why are you asking him about the Southern Poverty Law Center?

MR. KIMBERLIN: I’m asking him the Southern Poverty Law Center is the leading, one of the leading civil rights organizations in the —

THE COURT: I understand all of that but what does it have to do with this case?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because —

THE COURT: And the claim that you are making against these gentlemen?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Because Southern Poverty Law Center regularly outs racists —

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

THE COURT: So what if they do. What does that have to do with this case? This case isn’t about racists or racism.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s about hate. It’s about hate. These people hate me and they do anything to destroy me.

THE COURT: Well but why are you asking this witness about the Southern Poverty Law Center? First of all he couldn’t testify as to anything they said or did because it wouldn’t be an exception to any hearsay rule. So you would never be able to get that in evidence anyway.

MR. KIMBERLIN: All right.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Mr.—

THE COURT: Your objection’s sustained.

Of course, TDPK was trying to paint Stacy McCain as a racist, and that’s nonsense. Furthermore, given some of the racial epithets that TDPK is on record as have said and written, it was particularly unseemly for him to be trying to tar anyone else with that brush.

Even if Stacy or I or any of our codefendants were racist, that had no bearing on whether or not what we said and wrote was true, and TDPK had to prove that our words were false. Stupid is as stupid does, and TDPK tried to bring up racism a second time.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Have you ever been identified as a member of the hate group League of the South?

THE COURT: I’m sorry, what was that, what group?

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection.

MR. KIMBERLIN: League of the South.

THE COURT: League of the South?

MR. KIMBERLIN: It’s like an offshoot of the KKK.

MR. OSTRONIC: Objection, Your Honor.

MR. KIMBERLIN: It believes in —

THE COURT: What’s that relevant to, sir?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well he brought it up.

THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.

MR. KIMBERLIN: Huh?

THE COURT: He didn’t bring up the League of the South.

MR. KIMBERLIN: He talked about he’s not a racist.

THE COURT: Well the fact that he brought it up without objection doesn’t make it relevant. I mean what is the jury going to do with this? We’re not here about whether anybody is a racist or not, are we?

MR. KIMBERLIN: Well no, but he’s tried —

MR. MCCAIN: You’re white by the way.

Never try to outcrazy Stacy McCain.

 

Is #BillSchmalfeldt a Racist?

Aaron Walker’s wife is of predominantly Asian ancestry. Here’s the sort of things that Bill Schmalfeldt has tweeted about her:

Bill Schmalfeldt @MJanovic @AaronWorthing She better, or he’ll send her ass packing back to Asia where he purchased her.
8:28 PM – 19 Jun 13

This is an example of how “Journalist” Bill makes things up as he goes along, and gets it wrong. He claims that those who call him to account are liars as he makes outrageous and provably false statements.

I’ve written that Bill Schmalfeldt is a liar. I should clarify that statement. He appears to be a racist liar.
