From commenter Albatross at Marginal Revolution:

I think there are many people who believe the rhetoric about deplatforming and harmful speech and the rest. But I also think this stuff is very often used instrumentally–I need a way to get rid of an annoying rival, so I try to stir up some kind of pseudo-scandal to get him fired or demoted.

We start out trying to protect the fragile, and end up empowering sociopaths.

For example, here is a Colorado Sun article about a chain of nine yoga parlors in Denver that has been shut down because of something to do with St. George Floyd. If you read the article carefully, it’s clear that the owner’s only sin was being a straight white guy who possessed fewer Intersectional Pokemon Points than a couple of disgruntled employees.

  1. Sociopaths are a certain type of fragile. One that can’t contain themselves. They therefore explode onto those around them.

    They may have more coldly rational moments, but, in general, they really do believe that others are responsible for their hurt and that therefore hurting them back is righteous and justified.

    [MORE]

    The problem in understanding people is that we all have different layers. The woke-ists live on the most superficial one. “I’m hurt, it’s your fault”.

    They may occasionally find their way to some awareness of a deeper level. It would likely be “this hurt isn’t that bad (perhaps others have it worse”.) In this way, they invalidate their own feelings and calm down, though they’ll sacrifice some of their intensity to do so.

    Paradoxically, they’ll be almost fully better when they realise, even more deeply, that they were really hurt all along, but that they were hurting and persecuting themselves, both by being unable to self-contain and, later, by invalidating their feelings.

    Just as in the Soviet Union during the Great Purge, a great way to advance your career was to denounce your rival as an enemy of the people

    That’s just human nature when tribes collide. What the defenders of Stephan J Gould said about him “lying on the side of the angels” shifts to “lying on the side of the tribe.”

    More than a little “diversity” is poison to a neighborhood, community, nation.

    You can’t reinvent the wheel, or fundamental human nature. When push comes to shove, it’s the law of the tribes. We’ve been creating this catastrophe for the last 50 years. It’s not going to go away. It’s gonna get bigger, with sharper teeth.

    Boomers who have the means, probably don’t want to retire in the U.S.

    Well, the owner’s other sin is being cuck AF.
    His takeaway from the experience is:

    “””
    Harrington, who left Kindness in the hands of his management team while he lived in Costa Rica for three and half years, returning in mid-2019, admits he has more to learn about white privilege. He’s working on it, including reading the book “White Fragility” this month. He’s also planning a community forum to help business owners, yoga and otherwise, work through inclusivity and diversity issues.
    “””

    Maybe instead he should realize that he was stabbed in the back by undeserving wretches for whom he’d bent over backwards.

  5. Charlotte says:

    Turner also posted a video to her blog, railing against the former CEO’s tears as well as Harrington’s expression of “sadness” regarding her resignation.

    “The weaponizing of sadness and tears is infuriating,” Turner said in her viral video. “It is one of the more insidious factors of white supremacy and whiteness. And it is used as a tool and as a tactic to make me feel in this Black body that I have done something inherently wrong to bring this sadness upon you.”

    Phase 1. Proclaim that Black Lives Matter, etc. etc.

    Phase 2. Accusations of racism because . . . something

    Phase 3. Apologize and express distress over the accusations.

    Phase 4. Your apology is held up as evidence of insidious white supremacy.

    I agree.

    blacks are incapable of creating civilization.
    blacks are incapable of running a civilzation Europeans have built.
    (Cape Town, Detroit, Baltimore)
    blacks are incapable of learning from their past mistakes (i.e. sociopathic).
    blacks rely on superficial charm (i.e. sociopathic).
    blackshave no empathy for whites or even other blacks (i.e. sociopathic).
    blacks have a grandiose sense of self (i.e. sociopathic).

    BLM is nothing but a scam to take what whites have built.

  9. Also from Clown World:

    City of Seattle held segregated training session for white staff aimed at ‘undoing their whiteness’ and told them ‘not to take undeserved promotions’

    The City of Seattle held a segregated training session for white staffers last month in which they instructed workers on how to ‘undo their whiteness’ and affirm their ‘complicity in racism’, reports indicate.

    Titled ‘Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness’, the training session was reportedly held by the Office of Civil Rights on June 12, the same day protesters took part in the CHOP zone demonstrations in the Capitol Hill district.

    Christopher F. Rufo, an editor for City Journal and director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, unearthed the session’s existence after filing a Freedom of Information request last week, which was approved Monday.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8504187/City-Seattle-held-segregated-training-session-white-staff-aimed-undoing-whiteness.html

    So. If you’ve performed well at your job, the City of Seattle might offer you a promotion. But if you’re white, the City of Seattle is instructing you to decline the promotion that it just offered. Clear now? Your tax dollars at work.

    And then the Mao-Blackists came for Princeton:

    Princeton University faculty seek to establish racial thought police & punish insufficiently diverse disciplines

    Find da facultee letter on that there Gugle Docs. Motherfucker!

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfPmfeDKBi25_7rUTKkhZ3cyMICQicp05ReVaeBpEdYUCkyIA/viewform

    Anti-Blackness is foundational to America.

    Well, at least we are getting told.

    What are the demands of the gentle people?

    Give seats at your decision-making table to people of color who are actively anti-racist and inclusive in their practices. Diagnose the problem of racism through transparent demographic reporting. Redress the demographic disparity on Princeton’s faculty immediately and exponentially by hiring more faculty of color. Acknowledge the invisible work that faculty of color are compelled to do. Elevate faculty of color to prominent leadership positions. Educate the Princeton University community about the legacy of slavery and white supremacy. Continue to actively confront Princeton’s ties to and culpability in slavery and white supremacy. Use admissions as a tool of anti-racism. Invest in the pipeline to make lasting demographic change in the graduate and undergraduate bodies. Listen to and support Princeton’s faculty, preceptors, postdocs, staff, and students of color through open conversation and sustained mentoring programs. Above all, lead. Show our peer institutions, and the world, that genuine service to humanity begins with dismantling the unnatural and immoral hierarchies that universities have long perpetuated, both actively and in their inaction.

    Why don’t these people just go and create their own college?

    Here is a quick and bad breakdown of faculty. As usual, proper work on such unstructured data is difficult.

  12. Dumbo says:

    Two things about the current zeitgeist scare me.

    One, the amount of vitriol directed at people who are even slightly critical of the status quo, or say anything at all that might be vaguely construed as “racist”. I know a recent case, a woman I know personally who after probably drinking some wine made some very mild criticisms at a public event that was unfortunately filmed and posted online and interpreted as “racist”. Mind you, she didn’t even say anything offensive to anyone, she only said something to the effect that she was proud of her European heritage and didn’t have much interest in black culture.

    Well, the amount of online hate that she’s receiving is a thousand times worse than what she said. She’s been called things much worse than what she even thought, and received death threats, but with zero repercussion. And she might lose her job or have several problems because of this.

    The second thing is, the amount of censorship going on which is carelessly accepted by most people, and in the name of “free speech”. “Because hate speech is not hate speech”, or something. Just look at YouTube, lots of popular channels cancelled, from E. Michael Jones to Jared Taylor to other very harmless and very obscure ones. Yet they are found and cancelled, accused of “hate”. There is a lot of censorship going on, but no one seems to even notice or care. Many even celebrate it.

    It’s actually brilliant. They can’t be accused of racial discrimination against whites if they offer the promotion and the white refuses it as instructed.

    And, meanwhile, the colored candidates can’t get pissy at the white getting first dibs because TPTB are setting it up to show that at least they’re trying. Plus the usual divide and conquer.

    I wholeheartedly support the closure of these yoga studios, and agree that their practices were harmful to right-thinking people throughout the areas they served. There are many valuable lessons that Mr. Harrington can and should learn from this experience, and the assumptions he has made about race and gender non-conforming people need to be re-evaluated and rigorously critiqued.

    I would like to say that I hope he learns from this experience and “will do better personally,” as he puts it; however, honesty compels me to admit that I couldn’t care less about his “person-of-color yoga nights,” his “LGBTQ yoga workshops,” his “digital dialogue[s] about racism,” his pay whatever you want business model, or his 3.5 year sabbatical to Costa Rica, where his brain finally succumbed to terminal brain rot in the tropical heat.

    A white guy who owns a chain of yoga businesses just has to be full of it. He probably got into the business thinking it would be a good way to get laid (if so, he was right). Maybe I’m being uncharitable here, but I’ve met those “yogi” types before and every single one struck me as sleazy.

    Back in India, yogis are very frequently pimps. “Yoginis,” the female practitioners, are prostitutes trained in the arts of carnal pleasure.

    It always struck me as odd that otherwise modest upper middle class American women would train in exotic sex techniques, but then again Chinese housewives went through a pole-dancing fad recently. Perhaps because the practice is foreign, women can indulge in erotic fantasies and performances in a way that isn’t so obvious to the locals and thereby preserve respectability.

    However, you’ve got to admit when you see women doing yoga that it’s pretty obvious what they’re up to.

    Not simply “diversity.” It’s unchecked, unqualified, unregulated diversity. Every time the lowest dregs from the lousiest countries are induced to come here, we are importing the chaos from their home countries. Whether it’s Sicilians, Irish travelers, Gypsies or negroes, the result is the same: the willful import of discord in proportion to their population, and their will to remain unassimilated, or their fundamental inability to assimilate into modern western civilization to begin with.

    What you call “junior high jockeying,” indeed is at a junior high level, because the ground players lack the required IQ to muster behavior beyond that level of sophistication. They MUST operate at that level. It’s not a “trick” they’re pulling. It’s who they are.

    To be honest…

    I don’t really feel that bad for the yoga studio.

    The very model is flawed….You have a guy whose not even running the business jerking off living in Costa Rica…He Shouldn’t Get Any Money. He should not get paid, because he’s not doing anything.

    We have a shitty business model where ‘The Owner’ of the venue, hires ‘Teachers’ who do the work, and the Teachers get paid jack shit.

    All of those yoga teachers should have been getting a bulk percentage of the money.

    If a teacher has 23 students she gets 70% or so

    Teacher has 5 students….70% same

    All you need is a marketing team and venue….the rest goes to the teachers.

(Actually I just checked their web page and now it says documents, studies, and celebrates the DIVERSE food cultures of the CHANGING American South.) The organization wouldn’t exist without him – the whole thing was his idea, he did all the fund raising organizing, etc. It was a very white guy thing. Sure colored ladies always cooked in the South but only a white guy would treat making biscuits as a subject for serious academic study and classification (journals, conferences, etc. – the whole nine yards) and go about creating a whole organization from scratch – the colored ladies just thought that they were making biscuits and didn’t even write down the recipes let alone pen lengthy academic screeds about them.

    The problem is that he is a middle aged straight (I think) white guy and so in 2020 he has to go. In reading the article, it seemed like some people were upset that this guy (John T. Edge is his name) hadn’t said anything racist or sexually harassed anyone so they could have a pretext to get rid of him immediately. You could tell they were just itching to depose him so that a S. Asian woman or a gay black male or someone, anyone not white (oops I mean “diverse”) could take his place. But, the consensus was that even though he was without sin, he really needed to go anyway, just because he is a middle aged straight (I think) white guy and should no longer be the face of this (or any) organization even though he had founded and created it. Even Edge himself (a good liberal) seemed to acknowledge this – he just wants to do some more fund raising before he goes so that they will have an endowment and his life’s work won’t fall apart six months after he leaves for lack of money. But the Wokesters want him gone now for the sin of being not diverse.

    UC Berkeley has internalized the 1619 project. This is the future.

    Dear Cal alumni and friends:

    Yesterday, the UC Board of Regents announced that Michael Drake will become the new president of the University of California. The former head of The Ohio State University and UC Irvine, President Drake, an ophthalmologist and champion for educational access for all, is the first Black leader in the system’s 152-year history. I look forward to working closely with him to advance public higher education at a time when our mission has never been more important.

    President Drake’s appointment comes at an inflection point in society. Recent events have demonstrated the brutal reality that Black Americans have lived with since 1619: engrained, systemic anti-Blackness across society. From the kitchen table to the street, and from boardrooms to newsrooms, people are raising their voices against racial injustice and police brutality. Examining our institutions and structures — including UC Berkeley — is long overdue, as is a commitment to embracing justice, equity, and a true sense of belonging.


    [MORE]

    I want to state unequivocally my pledge to address pernicious racism wherever it may be found on campus and recap some of the actions we have taken:

    – On June 15, the UC Regents unanimously endorsed Assembly Constitutional Amendment 5 (ACA 5), as well as the repeal of Proposition 209, which banned the consideration of race and gender in admissions decisions 25 years ago. Subsequently approved by the state Legislature, ACA 5 will be on the November ballot and will require a majority vote to pass.

    – On June 18, I announced initial steps to reimagine [isn’t that a term from Hollywood?] policing and community safety, including reassessing use-of-force policies and police responsibilities and, in the long term, creating a team of mental health professionals to serve as first responders in non-criminal calls.

    – We are redoubling efforts to address student diversity and create a truly welcoming environment, with a particular focus on admissions policy and practice; outreach, recruitment, marketing, and yield; and the campus experience.

    As our Black admissions staff so proudly affirmed in this video [where you literally feel the tiredness of Femi Ogundele oozing off Facebook]), Black lives matter at Berkeley: “This cannot be a moment, and must be the movement.” Please join me in working together for change.

    A hush settles over Berkeley when students leave for the summer. While that exodus occurred much earlier this year, under much different circumstances, a slower rhythm has emerged. As such, I will shift these weekly emails to a biweekly schedule, still aiming to keep you informed of our fall plans and share relevant events and resources. I have included important links below to keep you connected to Cal during the summer.

    Of the eight member staff, six are women and two are men. All are, at least appear to be, white. One of them may be Peruvian, but if so, she is definitely a “white Hispanic.” If they were as interested in diversity as they claim to be, they would prioritize the hiring of another man.

    The organization is affiliated with the University of Mississippi, so wokeness — even in Mississippi — is going to be crucial. Their Values Statement includes phrases such as . . . ” We sing the unsung . . . endangered expressions of people . . . We tell honest and sometimes difficult stories about our region . . . We strive to be geographically inclusive . . . We believe honest regional food should be affordable for all.”

    As you can tell from their new mission statement (the CHANGING American South) it’s no longer enough to think of Southern cuisine as the food cooked by black people (let alone whites).

    In the past, Southern food was synonymous with food cooked by blacks – either black people were cooking this food for themselves or else they were doing the cooking for white people. Any white family that was middle class or above would have a black housekeeper/cook/nanny, both before and after slavery. If you were rich you would have a bunch of servants but even someone middle class would have at least 1. (This was also true in the North but the servants wouldn’t necessarily be black – more often Irish. The Southerners got the better deal because blacks are better cooks than Irish, even putting aside Typhoid Mary). In the days when families were larger and labor saving appliances were fewer (and labor costs were lower) it was pretty much a necessity – it would be physically impossible for 1 housewife to do all of the household chores by herself in a large Victorian house. The “mammy” was considered to be a positive role model – often more of a mother to the children than their actual mother who spent her time playing bridge with her friends and maybe sipping a little too much sherry. But in the Woke Age, Aunt Jemina gotta go – working, let alone working for white people, is demeaning.

    But anyway, this black/white paradigm for Southern cooking, like Edge himself, has got to go. Even blacks aren’t DIVERSE enough anymore. The new hot field of study is the cooking of various immigrant groups – Indian (dot not feather) cooking in the South, Chinese cooking in the South, Mexican cooking in the South and so on. Never mind that this is all fairly recent and that Indian cooking in the South is much like Indian cooking anywhere. If I had to bet on Edge’s replacement, it will be a S. Asian woman.

    I don’t know whether blacks have noticed this yet but “diversity” means that whites are getting replaced at the top by high IQ, high verbal S. Asians and they are skipping blacks. You are not going to put a trillion $ organization like Google in the hands of some 105 IQ black person but you can feel safe with a clever Indian and he/she counts as a Person of Color.

    This is junior high-level jockeying for position translated onto a larger stage.

    Heather MacDonald made that point maybe six years ago in observing the movement of frenzied outlashing from the culture of college campuses to society at large.

    In my experience among the kindern, this sort of violent, ever-escalating, specifically hysterical, conformity-based social viciousness is more common among young adolescent girls than boys. The gossipy, take-no-prisoners/destroy-her-life quality of it bears a distinctly feminized/feminine stamp.

    As any father of daughters will tell you, checking that behavior can be a challenge in a family setting. But trying to do so when mom or other women have the motivation and power to keep it from being checked–never mind climb socially and financially in doing so–can be disastrous to those attempting it.

    In my view this is the last phase of Nth Wave feminism. I have never met/worked with a talented, highly intelligent woman who reported that her worst boss or colleague was a man. Almost without exception, such women can relate other women’s efforts to monkeywrench their projects, programs, or careers…generally with unsophisticated, teenage female machinations.

    This isn’t junior high school jockeying per se. It’s the behavior of adolescent females with zero checks on their behavior. And this is the real global pandemic threatening everyone at present.

    Can’t separate Southern cuisine from the white Creole French/Spanish influence either. They taught the black cooks their techniques. Texas and Louisiana (lesser extent Florida and AL/MS Gulf Coast) have the best food in the nation.

    With the exception of South Carolina, the food of the upper South pales in comparison (aside from trendy bistros in big cities) and is really just a nexus between true Southern cuisine and Midwestern food.

  55. Regarding the article you cite in the OT from Colorado Sun: these are Maoist struggle sessions. That article is all about Maoist struggle sessions.
    It is not “cultural Marxism” or “Frankfurt School” or “social Marxism” … everyone please stop using these BS terms. This is not happening because an obscure post-war German scholarly sect had bad ideas – there were 100 other “schools” and they were equally irrelevant and whenever you say those things the majority of people immediately dismiss you so your words are worse than wasted they have the opposite effect of getting people to organize.
    Maoism, and Maoist struggle sessions – those are real, they are a movement, and they are entirely concrete and precisely the disease condition and strategy that the woke are spreading and using. There are a few interesting differences between the American and Chinese versions:
    Maoist struggle sessions took place in the context of Maoist hegemony – it is hardly clear the woke enjoy hegemony (yet);
    Maoist struggle sessions occurred at the point of a gun after the Nationalists were driven out of mainland China – we have the 2nd Amendment;
    Our American Maoists have social media, MSM and much of corporate America on their side and their game seems to be to assume that’s going to be enough, and to assume that even if they lose, they don’t have much to lose.
    Our job is: to see to that they lose, to do so without recourse to the Second Amendment (which should go without saying) but most importantly – to see to it that there is a steep, memorable economic cost that just keeps on collecting, once this is over.
    That does not happen while conservatives and centrists thumb-suck over the rightness of their positions – it will only happen through organization and fierce mutual loyalty.

    Well, the owner’s other sin is being cuck AF.
    His takeaway from the experience is:

    Maybe instead he should realize that he was stabbed in the back by undeserving wretches for whom he’d bent over backwards.

    No doubt this guy–despite building a successful business–is a pathetic cuck.

    And he’s got a problem because his actual paying customers are white women–specifically the sort of white women who do yoga and particularly signed up under his “Kindness Yoga” pitch.

    But what this incident really highlights is that the minoritarian coup against our Freedom of Association has been extremely lethal.

    In the before time, if your business encountered such nonsense, you could brush it aside and as long as your customers were on board with you, you were fine. But this guy actually, can’t say “Ok, i’m never going to make blacks and trannies happy” and open up “White Yoga”. Even if he could find a base of white women customers, the *state* would intervene–directly with bureaucrats issuing fines and orders, but also by enabling “discrimination” lawsuit shakedowns–to crush him like a bug.

    Bottom line: He is not free. We are no longer free. We are all wards of the minoritarian state, which will tell us what we can and can not do, what we can and can not think.

    There simply is no freedom possible under the minoritarian ideology. Minoritarianism inherently means a police state to root out my/your/our “oppression” of minority “rights” … from every facet of human activity.

    We–Americans–either develop some leaders who are willing to stand up against minoritarianism and for our republican 1787 constitution of self-government, and fundamental liberties, including the most fundamental–Freedom of Association. Or we live under the minoritarian “Civil Rights” police state.

    And in a yoga business, it’s the personality of the teachers who are bringing in the students…the business is providing a roof. And you don’t even need a roof half the time anyways.

    So…if “Kindness” was forming a creepy cult that was stopping the teachers from starting their own businesses….Then this sounds like a completely legit take down…even if ‘leftist’ reasoning was used to implement it.

    The reason why leftist reasoning had to be used to implement the takedown is because ‘Kindness’ probably did start a ‘cult’ which then would turn on the teachers if they tried to make money outside of the Network.

    This has a long history in the West. During the late Roman Republic, Marius and Sulla were bitter rivals who ignited a civil war; Sulla went on campaign to conquer Mithradates, and Marius’ faction established proscriptions (death sentences) on Sulla’s allies in Rome. When Sulla returned and defeated Marius’ allies, he, in turn launched his own proscriptions on Marius’ supporters. Many took advantage of the situation to falsely accuse wealthy neutrals or other innocents of being a Marius supporter, simply to settle a personal score or get the condemned person’s assets, which were forfeit upon sentencing.

    What I see is a hot black yoga instructor babe who probably wanted the white male studio owner, but got rejected because he favored a hot white yoga instructor instead. So the black woman metaphorically burned the whole house down.

    Whenever there’s a male-female dynamic in cancel culture, I always look for a spurned lover or someone who feels sexually rejected in some way. A lot of social justice comes down to jealousy, so it makes sense to me that romantic jealousy would factor in too.

    BIPOC is, I think, a Canadian thing.

    I’m surprised it can grow in their climate.

    It seems like it’s just in the last couple years that the word “exponentially” has been discovered by the innumerate, who use it as a synonym for “greatly”, “vastly”, etc. It’s the latest sixty-four dollar word that the ignorant use to lend an air of (false) erudition to what they say and write.

    They do the same thing with the word decimate. Just wait until they get to myriad.

    It’s yoga, all you need is an empty room with a soft floor.

    Not even, you can just make your students bring mats.

    Better yet, you can buy mats and sell them to students for substantial profit.

    Even better, you can buy mats and gouge students by convincing them your mats provide extra Chakra stimulation or some such.
