There is no easy in way life.

There is no easy way.

When you understand this, you understand the comments of the NAACP leader from Fairfax County, who said, “let them die” when it came to those who opposed Critical Race Theory. [UPDATE: The NAACP Leader Who Declared ‘Let Them Die’ About Opponents of CRT Has Resigned, Townhall.com. July 17, 2021]:

The other day I highlighted the disturbing remarks of a local NAACP leader in Fairfax County, Virginia. On Thursday night, Michelle Leete stood outside the Jackson Middle School and rallied protesters in favor of Critical Race Theory (CRT) into a round of applause as she declared “Let them die” about her opponents. On Saturday morning, the Virginia PTA announced over Twitter that she’s since resigned from her position with them.

Leete resigned from her position of Vice President of Training at the Virginia PTA. She’s also the Vice President of the Fairfax NAACP and the Vice President of Communications for the Fairfax County PTA.

“While not speaking in her role with Virginia PTA, we do not condone the choice of words used during a public event on Thursday, July 15, 2021,” the statement read in part.

The resignation was announced the day after the Virginia PTA shared that Leete’s “statement does not reflect the values of Virginia PTA.” The Virginia PTA also noted that “We believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion. However, we also know words have power and that it is important to understand the impact of our language.”

It was further revealed that PTA board members will have to participate in “sensitivity training” over the summer “to ensure the we remain mindful of our community and the impact of the words we use.”

The Virginia PTA has restricted comments for the two tweets above.

Leete’s own tweets are protected. The Fairfax NAACP has yet to tweet about the incident from their account as of Saturday afternoon, though there have been tweets unrelated to the incident sent out since then. The Fairfax County PTA has not been active on Twitter since July 8.

Leete’s remarks of “Let them die” came after a ranting screed against those who oppose CRT, where she referred to them as “anti-education, anti-teacher, anti-equity, anti-history, anti-racial reckoning, anti-opportunity, anti-help people, anti-diversity, anti-platform, anti-science, anti-change agent, anti-social justice, anti-health care (mentioned twice), anti-worker (mentioned twice), anti-LGBTQ+, anti-children, anti-environment, anti-admissions policy change, anti-inclusion, anti-live and let live people.”

She went on to say “Let them die,” as her words were drowned out by enthusiastic applause before she continued with saying “don’t let these uncomfortable people deter us from our goal to march forward.”

There is no middle ground. Either the view of the 1619 Project wins, or those ideas that put white men on the moon on July 20, 1969 (less than 66 years after the Wright Brothers flew in 1903) win out.

    Either their fraud must win, or ours.

    We should thank blacks for being so incapable of controlling themselves that they spill the beans on things.

    Cancel culture, getting people fired for saying the word “nigger” and trying to harass good white men like Tucker Carlson is a kind of soft execution. The left wants dissenters dead, but because they will get blown the fuck away by anyone with anything more than a popgun, they instead try to prevent you from paying for the roof over your head, keeping food out of your stomach and keeping your mind immiserated so that you contemplate suicide.

    The left is nothing but petty tyrants who want to control the entire world because they can’t control themselves. If you disrupt their little worldview, they don’t want to engage you to get more knowledge and a better worldview. They want the meanie who upsets their fee-fees gone so they can continue to live in ignorance and foist that ignorance upon others.

    There is a reason the left hand is the sinister one.

    Black NAACP Leader Says White Critics of Critical Race Theory Must be Allowed to “Let Them Die”

    White critics must be allowed to let who die? It’s not possible to correctly parse this garbled sentence.

  19. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/watch-mob-surrounds-cop-trying-respond-shooting-atlanta-get-white-face/

    Mob surrounds cop trying to respond to shooting in Atlanta, “Get Your White Face Out Of Here!”

    The process of many cities becoming Africanized is well under way and it’s not going to stop until entire regions surrounding them become Africanized. They don’t want the white man around but they sure do want everything the white man provides. If they want this type of segregation, that’s fine with me- as long as whitey cuts them off 100% and they’re forced to provide for themselves and have to stay out of white areas. Their areas would quickly become third world cesspits filled with extreme crime, corruption, crushing poverty (and starvation) ruled by warlords. Again, that’s fine with me as long as no refugees are allowed to flee to white areas and they’re all kept well contained within the cesspits of their own making. They can call their cesspits “Wakanda.” Just imagine them trying to maintain the first world infrastructure left behind by the white man! Lol- that would be comedy gold as there’d be no clean water, no sanitation and even electricity would become hit or miss. Food supplies would devolve into whatever could be provided by themselves via subsistence farming. Roads would eventually become impassable due to neglect and deterioration. I say we give them what they want and let them suffer the consequences!

    Sorry for the rant- I just have extreme negro fatigue.

    ‘Anti- Science’…My God, the ignorance and stupidity of these people never ceases to amaze and irritate me. ‘Science’ and use of data and statistics is the absolute opposite of what the ‘left’ stand for and would shut down the ‘Racial-Reckoning’ or ‘Negro-Worship’ she mentions… immediately- for reasons all of us on this site are aware of.

    These peoples heads have been programmed by a far superior and cunning breed who must laugh amongst themselves at the stupidity of their ‘Black Pets’ and the lack of opposition from scared White people.

    Just listen to the nonsense Kendhi Ibram X whatever and Nicole Harris 1619 (who demanded a Tenure then refused it) are spouting. Their word is now absolute truth, and any debate or opposing critique will be shut down for being ‘Racist’. This is learnt behaviour for Whites. We have been unable to question the Tribe for fear of being labelled Anti-Semitic – and now we have the same with Blacks.

    Much as I dislike how the Tribe operates, I respect their intellectual prowess. Blacks however are just so self righteous and ignorant, I find it excruciating listening to the supposed intellectual leaders promoted and worshipped by the silly and emotional Left.

    There are some very clever Black intellectuals (Thomas Sowell etc) but they don’t fall in line with the current narrative that white people are to blame for the disfunction etc of Blacks so are called ‘Uncle Tom’s’ and ridiculed for speaking the truth…or facts based on Scientific deduction.

    “No middle ground. It’s either CRT or the moonlanding. What a silly comparison.”

    That’s an opinion, clearly. When you’re talking about a race of people that just 300 short years ago on their home turf were still in search of the concept of the wheel (just like native American’s) there’s absolutely nothing silly about it at all. I know it’s all water under the bridge but exploring that continent was probably the biggest mistake European man has ever made. These people when they take over (and they will) are not going to take mercy on any of us, including the demented white women that think they have the magic elixir to control the modern pavement ape. The biggest problem we have here (a bit unlike SA) is their easy access to high quality, high capacity firearms which they’ve proven using them for their daily activities isn’t a problem in the least. That’s something that even the people enjoying somewhat peaceful lives in the burbs are going to get a nasty lesson in the near future.

    3. The Dindu is a martyr, persecuted unjustly by society, the police, and the white hispanic.

    4. Life is suffering. White men and the wealthy are the cause of all suffering. There is a path to end suffering. The path is violence and looting.

    5.If someone has material wealth that you desire, they automatically must have acquired it via evil and oppression. When you perpetrate violence to steal their wealth, it is an act of liberation and the casting off of an oppressor.

    @CDebussey

    Thanks for responding. I liked your comment.

    I was just referring to the fact that everyone seems to mention the STEM side of white men and not the the Arts and Humanities, which were just as much, if not more amazing. No one can touch us in that regard.

    We’re always hearing talk about the high IQ of certain unique minorities. But when it comes to the life of the mind and the world of ideas no one comes close to white men. So why isn’t that mentioned more often? Because most white men have lost contact with that side of their history. That’s why.

    And I know that part of that reason is the bad taste left in everyone’s mouth by what ended up happening to the Arts in general and the Humanities in particular.

    But the fault of that I lay at the feet of white men themselves. They abandoned that area of study during the 20th century and simply made it easy for the usual suspects to take it over. And that’s exactly what happened.

    So whenever anyone defends whites now it’s some STEM related thing that wouldn’t help us now anyway, and didn’t help us after it happened either. I mean, look at NASA now. It’s been ruined. And by who? Those who took over the Humanities! Of course!

    And look at most white men today. Like the other two who responded to my comment. Unlike you they can’t respond intelligently because they have nothing to say. So they either post a nothing comment or click the Troll button. Pathetic.

    Again, I liked your comment and basically agree. My intention was not to underestimate our achievements but to point out the fact that we’ve done a whole lot more than that that is way – way more important.

    These people when they take over (and they will) are not going to take mercy on any of us

    So true. But why? Again, because white men are about as good at organizing in self-defense as blacks are at swimming.

    ….including the demented white women that think they have the magic elixir to control the modern pavement ape.

    Couldn’t agree more. But they’re already getting theirs and it will continue to get a whole lot worse for them. They’ve basically dug their own grave and that of their children as well. I’ve already seen evidence for that and so too have a lot of people I know.

    The biggest problem we have here (a bit unlike SA) is their easy access to high quality, high capacity firearms which they’ve proven using them for their daily activities isn’t a problem in the least. That’s something that even the people enjoying somewhat peaceful lives in the burbs are going to get a nasty lesson in the near future.

    Again, correct. They are moving out of the cities and into the suburbs. Which is one of the reasons I said above that the Karens of this world are getting theirs. Everyone knows the worst is yet to come.

    But, to repeat, a lot of the fault lies with white men. Unless they grow a collective backbone and pair they’re going to get obliterated. Maybe that’s what they want. Who knows? One thing’s for sure, we’re going to find out sooner than later.

    >I think that that’s a surprising step away from violence.

    An analogy:

    A few weeks ago a video surfaced of a female teacher (in MO) going on a deranged rant during some LGBTQ related 6th grade class lesson (link) — she was later fired — by firing her the educational establishment effectively moved the goalpost: the disturbing classroom content for pre-teens wasn’t the problem, just the bizarre conduct of the teacher — so the teacher is gone, all the outraged conservatards have moved on, but the same content is no doubt still being taught by other teachers (not only at that school, but probably also elsewhere in MO and around the country) — the other teachers just aren’t making absurd spectacles of themselves.

    See the problem?

    So now this nutjob Leete is gone — some opposed to CRT will be placated by this, their outrage will be assuaged — but they are being fooled, i.e. for them the goalposts have been successfully moved: CRT is no longer the big problem, just crazy black advocates for it who say things like ‘Let them die’ — but the push to have CRT in the schools is still there.

    In the same way, there is still a racial war being waged against Whites, and it is being expanded and stepped up every year — nothing has changed.

    Go to your local electrical supply house (City Electric is all over the US), or if you know an electrician, ask them for a piece of 500MCM or 600MCM, about 18″-24″. It makes the best baton you can get, due to the fact it has a bit of give to it, so the kinetic energy does far more damage than a solid wood or metal pipe will do. They will crush a skull, shatter a windshield, or break bones on contact. I carry one in my truck, as does pretty much every electrician I know.

    The moon missions spent only minutes inside the inner (stronger) Van Allen belt, and the aluminum shell of the CM was enough to attenuate the proton bombardment by a considerable amount.  That’s how they got through.

    They DID disturb the dust under it; you can see dust blowing away with the rocket exhaust in the camera footage.

    Try again.

    I’m not all that interested in the epistemology of it — I’m more interested in the fact she incites resentment against and provokes hatred of Whites, something both she and the Establishment legitimize — as well as what this portends for Whites as their population fraction falls.

  61. This actually reflects one of my primary concerns about the teaching of ‘Critical Race Theory.’

    It won’t happen much in white schools, and resistance will be strong.

    But what about blacks? This is all going to boil down to encouraging them to go out there and get Whitey.

    I won’t lay things out past that — but it’s not pretty no matter how one looks at it.

    Why do these women who say such evil things always have such big smiles? It’s really unnerving.

    This conversation is interesting to me. A large part of my childhood was spent on Merritt Island in a house built for a high ranking NASA administrator/official during the original space boom.

    My mother’s oldest brother worked at the Cape, he wrote the computer program that enabled a massive overhead crane to move the shuttle around inside its hanger.

    I listened to the broadcast on the radio in South Africa in 1969. We didn’t have TV until 1976. I remember them talking about the rocks and dust being blown past the windows from the rocket exhaust.

    And yet …

    Look at the pictures on this page. The dust under that LEM is undisturbed. There should be a saucer-shaped depression surrounding it, with the finer dust spread far and wide, and heavier stones laid bare. There isn’t. There’s just virgin, undisturbed dust, with footprints in it. You can see by the patterns of colour in the dust that it’s virgin, and not blown up and resettled. It couldn’t resettle in the same place, anyway – the exhaust gases would have blown it outward.

    Ignore what he says about the light. I don’t know enough about photography to comment, beyond noting that he seems to leave reflected light out of account altogether. Concentrate on that “landing” site. I’m not dogmatic about it; I’ll accept any reasonable explanation.

    Try again.

    When she said “Let them die”, she was referring to those people (mostly white) who refuse to submit to Critical Race Theory, not to dysfunctional blacks.

    Yeah,but I don’t believe in Besos! THAT was fake!

    ok ok….I think this would be a wonderful opportunity to pause for a
    moment and give thanks for the many great contributions of the Black community
    and their culture to our society. Their peaceful and generous nature makes them
    ideal neighbors, lending testimony to their exceptional family values and parenting
    skills unrivaled by any other culture.

    Their commitment to academic excellence enriches our schools and
    serves as an example to all who hope to achieve prominence as a people. Real
    Estate values are fueled by the influx of African Americans into an area due to
    their caring and respectful nurturing of these communities, an example of all
    they have achieved by their enthusiasm for self-improvement through hard work
    and a self-reliant can-do nature. Without their industrious and creative drive,
    we would be poorer as a nation.

    Presently
    enriching the cities of Spokane WA, Chicago IL, Philadelphia PA, Washington
    D.C., St. Louis MO, New Orleans LA, Los Angeles CA, Baltimore MD,
    Pontiac MI, Gary Ind., Newark NJ, Cleveland OH, Atlanta GA, Richmond VA,
    Memphis TN, Birmingham AL, Camden NJ; and let’s not forget Detroit, the tourism
    capital of the world!

    You’re way overestimating both the thrust of the descent engine at landing, and the time it was close enough to the surface to displace regolith.  Remember, gravity on the lunar surface is about 1/6 g, the descent stage’s tanks were nearly dry (LOTS of mass burned off), and it was close enough to the surface to blow matter off it for a matter of seconds.  Further, the regolith is NOT loose particles; it’s largely vacuum-welded together at the points of contact.  It takes considerable force to break it loose, and that force was simply not there for all but a small fraction of it.  It’s nothing like wind shaping sand dunes.

    There’s just virgin, undisturbed dust, with footprints in it.

    Of course.  ANYTHING that was still there was undisturbed; anything that was blown loose was re-distributed some distance away, too thinly to be visible.

    You can see by the patterns of colour in the dust that it’s virgin, and not blown up and resettled. It couldn’t resettle in the same place, anyway – the exhaust gases would have blown it outward.

    If memory serves, both the CSM and the LEM used the storable bipropellant mix N2O4 and monomethyl hydrazine.  This combo has a specific impulse of roughly 320 seconds, meaning an exhaust velocity in excess of 3 km/sec.  In 1/6 g in vacuum, any matter blown away by such an exhaust plume was going to settle quite some distance away unless it was on a very low arc and ran into something like a boulder or crater wall.  Regardless, the vacuum-welded nature of the surface material was going to keep it more or less together for the brief period of the final landing.  If you scrutinized the zone beneath the nozzle you could probably detect the signs of disturbance, but NASA wasn’t interested in that; the mission was to uncover evidence of the origins of the moon, not what the LEM had done literally yesterday.  Debunking conspiracy theories about how the mission was faked was the last thing on their minds.

    There’s more, lots more.  There were ham radio operators who listened to the radio traffic from the CM in real time.  There are all the laser retroreflectors left at the landing sites.  There are the rocks and regolith returned from the missions, which are consistent with the known meteorites of lunar origin.  Then there’s the little detail of the total world computing power being woefully insufficient at the time to create the video everyone saw (well, maybe not you, but I saw it); 52 years of Moore’s law amounts to a cost factor of about 67 million.  Believe me, that stuff was filmed on-site.

    Hmmm. Quite simple EAH – South Africa today tells us precisely what it portends.

    It doesn’t matter how many IKAGOs like Clarence Thomas, Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell, Ben Carson, Larry Elder et al there are, it is simply an insufficient number of them to speak to their people with any sort of authority.

    We are heading towards South Africa at breakneck speed.

    From your comments:

    They DID disturb the dust under it; you can see dust blowing away with the rocket exhaust in the camera footage.

    You’re way overestimating both the thrust of the descent engine at landing, and the time it was close enough to the surface to displace regolith… Further, the regolith is NOT loose particles; it’s largely vacuum-welded together at the points of contact.

    Can’t have it both ways. A rocket engine powerful enough to land a spaceship on the moon must leave some evidence. A hairdryer would make more of an impression. What remains is not vacuum-welded anything. It’s dust, with footprints in it. I’m afraid I’m not convinced, and will continue to regard that landing as “Not Proven”. As I said, I’m not a committed denier, just give me a reasonable explanation.

    There are the rocks and regolith returned from the missions, which are consistent with the known meteorites of lunar origin. Then there’s the little detail of the total world computing power being woefully insufficient at the time to create the video everyone saw

    I’m sceptical of claims of “known lunar (or Martian) origin”. They’re guessing. How would they prove it?

    Here’s a “lunar rock” that turned out to be a piece of petrified wood. Sure, all kinds of explanations, but for a while there, everybody believed it.

    https://phys.org/news/2009-09-moon-fake.html

    The argument about computer technology I also find unconvincing. They didn’t need computer technology to fake the pictures. They had cameras. The pictures are real. They’re just not pictures of a rocket landing site.
