The blog where I rant about things that should be obvious to everyone

As a man with a 4 year degree in computer science, and a mediocre job doing web development I'm not really qualified to comment on politics, religion, or anything else, but I'll be damned if that stops me.

Stop calling the left hypocrites

When I was playing basketball in high school, my coaches repeatedly beat into my head that I needed to take a pump fake when getting the ball passed to me in the post.  As is I was just turning and shooting a contested shot that would either miss or get blocked.  But eventually my coach’s instructions started working, and I began to robotically pump fake every time I got the ball.  Most of the time that worked great because my defender was pressed against my shoulder, and as soon as they jumped I could draw an offensive foul and or shoot over them.  But sometimes the defender wasn’t set when I got the ball, and a pump fake just gave them time to recover.  I had to learn that the point of any sort of ball fake, whether it’s a pump fake, pretending to pass to an empty spot on the court behind the defender, or looking at an empty space on the court like there is someone there, the point is to get a defender who is playing good defense be tricked into playing bad defense.  

When liberals cry racism, all they are doing is robotically throwing a pump fake.  Ending racism is not their goal, and never has been.  It’s just empty space they want you to defend.  They’ve learned to do it because it works.  They say that we can’t have voter id laws because they are racist.  Conservatives then respond that black people know how to get photo ids, and thinking they can’t makes Democrats the real racists.  And while the liberal media has everyone pretending that racism an issue massive voter fraud takes place.  

And the truth in this case is that calling democrats the real racists is wrong anyway.  They don’t believe that black people can’t get photo ids either.  They just want unrestricted voter fraud.  

So while there are exceptions where calling democrats out on their bigotry and hatred is good rhetoric, for the most part saying things like “Democrats are the real racists” is just biting on a pump fake.

Self Defense While White


The man described in this video is Allen Scarsella, who was just convicted in court.  As the hostile witnesses in the video describe it, he was at a BLM protest filming it.  The protesters didn’t like him and demanded he and his friends remove their masks.  When they didn’t the crowd started punching them, and when they ran the crowd that had been violent started chasing them.  At this point, with a violent angry mob chasing them, Allen shot 5 of them and was able to get away.  


The jury’s statements make it obvious that they were not considering whether or not it is ok for a man being chased by a violent mob to fight back or not, but whether or not Allen was a racist.  And he was found guilty of shooting at the violent mob chasing him, not because they were a violent mob chasing him, but because they were black.  


This was just one of many BLM violent riots that happen in Minnesota’s Twin Cities.  And Allen made a mistake.  He bought into the narrative that this riots are happening because left is illogical and their rhetoric was causing the unintended consequence of violent riots.  And so with that being the case, he thought he could go and stand his ground and defend himself as all citizens have the right to do, and because his only enemies are the cowardly protestors that will only be violent when they think there isn’t any possibility of being hit back, he’d be fine.  What he failed to realize is that the Governor, Mayor, police chief, and local judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys, are all on the side of the riot.  The powers that be want the rioters to do what they want, and they want innocent people to get out of the way and cower in fear.  Allen messed that up, so he had to pay.  

I’m sure that after the Berkeley riots a lot of people are thinking of doing similar things.  But if you do, know all of what and who you are up against, and recognize the full scale of the sacrifice you’ll likely be making.  If someone at Berkeley had done something similar, it’s pretty clear the outcome would have been the same.  They’d be messing with the mayor, police, judges, attorneys, and would be sent to jail for decades for the crime of not letting a mob beat and possibly kill them.
