Today in History: Democrats call Herman Cain a racist. Herman Cain officially becomes my second choice for President in 2012 since anyone the Left calls a racist is clearly doing something right.
Cornell Belcher — a man who sounds like the unofficial mascot of a fraternity-favorite bar in Ithaca, New York — has accused Herman Cain of being a RAAACIST.
Herman Cain is a black man.
Cornell Belcher is — BURP! — a black man. BURP!
Since the Left really has only one consistent weapon at its disposal — calling anyone who opposes the Left a RAAACIST — fools like Belcher launch into their practiced “He’s a RAAACIST!” routine sometimes without realizing the person being called a RAAACIST is black himself.
Whenever you hear anyone like Cornell “Burpy” Belcher call someone a racist in the future, first off, indulge the last remnants of the schoolyard you and laugh at his ridiculous, ridiculous name…and then think about all the people accused of being a WITCH! through the centuries because they either irked someone personally or opposed him or her politically.
Shouting RAAACIST! at a person in 2011 is the same as shouting WITCH! at an opponent in 1611.
It is an irrational, emotional, baseless attack wholly devoid of any reason or substance…meant solely to alienate the victim from public support, ostracize that person, and then leave the person vulnerable to further orchestrated attacks on his or her credibility, standing, or livelihood.
The Left has only one playbook — the Alinsky Rules Book — and it’s been recycling the same attacks for decades…which are based on the same divisive and inflammatory attacks used by similar evil doers for centuries.
The net result of Cornell “Burpy” Belcher’s attack on Herman Cain is this: I have always liked Cain, but I’ve been wary of supporting someone who has never held political office before in a bid for the presidency.
But, I have to say, that aside from Governor Sarah Palin and Congressman Allen West, Cain is the only Republican who has the courage to call the Left out on its garbage on a regular basis. All of the declared presidential candidates, besides Cain, seem afraid of the media to some degree.
I’m backing Governor Sarah Palin in 2012 because I believe she is running and will announce sometime between October 19th and Halloween.
If she does not run, more likely than not I’ll end up supporting whomever she endorses…but I have to say, right here, right now, in a race that doesn’t include Governor Palin I am all about Herman Cain.
Because at the end of the day, if someone in the political world is being called RAAACIST! by Leftists like Cornell “Burpy” Belcher, then he must be doing something right.
So maybe it’s worth looking past his previous lack of elected office and exploring whether I think a President Herman Cain would be willing to sock it to the Left every single day he’s working in the Oval Office.
Maine Governor to NAACP: “Tell ‘em to kiss my butt. If they want to play the race card, come to dinner and my son will talk to them.”
Paul LePage, the Governor of Maine, has stood up to the thugs at the NAACP…who ginned up the old racebaiting machine to brand him a RAAACIST! for not being available to attend a Martin Luther King tribute dinner this year. His office had already scheduled other engagements that day, but the NAACP demanded he cancel those and attend their event instead. If not, you know what that means…that Paul LePage must be a RAAACIST!
“They (the NAACP) are a special interest. End of story…and I’m not going to be held hostage by special interests. And if they want, they can look at my family picture. My son happens to be black, so they can do whatever they’d like about it,” said LePage.
LePage is a Republican…but clearly not part of the Cocktail Party crowd that crumples in terror whenever the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, or the “Justice Brothers” of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton team up to bully and threaten anyone who dares say no to whatever demand they make that day. Those last two, Jackson and Sharpton, are two black males who’ve made racial blackmail a profitable art form for well on 30 years now.
The black community will one day come to regret a great many things — but chief amongst them will be their behavior during the 2008 presidential campaign. Aside from the massive blowback that’s going to come out of the Pigford Black Reparations Scam (which Obama engineered), that will be hitting the fan this and next year, the Race Industry is going to soon realize all the false charges of RAAACISM! leveled against anyone who opposed Obama in 2008 have completely nullified this smear attack.
Everyone under the sun has been called a RAAACIST, if that person didn’t do whatever high-profile black opportunists wanted that person to do.
People are tired of it.
And they are standing up to the Race Industry.
That’s a marvelous thing.
We have an idea for a series we’d like to ultimately turn into TV commercials, possibly using actors or maybe just animating somehow.
In the 1930s/40s Superman was used to great effect to takedown the Ku Klux Klan by making the klansmen seem as ridiculous as possible, while using the readily identifiable Superman character as the bridge to get average Americans to pay attention to how ridiculous the Klan really was. Prior to this, the Klan was feared, and allowed largely to operate in the shadows, terrifying people, both white and black alike.
It’s high time someone gave the Race Industry the same treatment — with the end result being that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Henry Gates, Eric Holder, Spike Lee, James Clyburne, John Lewis, Donna Brazile, and the rest of this nation’s most notorious race-baiters get laughed out of any room they enter, just like a Grand Dragon or an Exalted Cyclops would in the year 2010.
The Race Industry employs the same threats, intimidation, hit lists, and fear mongering the Ku Klux Klan used to get what it wanted for so long — until the public saw those lunatics for what they were, stopped being afraid of them, stopped giving them “protection money”, and started pointing and laughing whenever any of their leaders appeared in public to rant, rave, and carry on like usual.
We’ve been using the Goofus & Gallant-inspired “Class vs. Crass” series to highlight the ridiculous things the current First Lady does, in contrast to the way former occupants of that unelected office comported themselves.
We’d like to do something similar, with a different name, to showcase things the Race Industry declares RAAACIST! that normal people see as just happenstance in life. When some black people fail a test, they call the test RAAACIST! while normal people would just admit they didn’t study hard enough to pass it. When people like Henry Gates make it to a counter, and they’re out of doughnuts, Gates screams RAAACISM! while normal people just realize they should have gotten their lazy butts up an hour earlier and they would have had some Krispy Kremes left. When Al Sharpton gets rained on, he screams RAAACIST! at the clouds high above (even though they, too, are black) instead of admitting he should have taken his damn umbrella with him.
We believe, to a large extent, that the only real racism committed in this country for the last several decades has been perpetrated by black people, against whites, Hispanics, and the other minorities that blacks compete with for jobs and public benefits. Wailing and screeching about RAAACISM! has become, for the black community, similar to an infant in a crib crying for a bottle. People like Sharpton, Jackson, and Gates have purposefully made the black community dependent on the government for so much, and have trained black people to screech RAAACISM! whenever they want something, that they’ve infantilized an entire segment of the population (much to Democrats’ joy, because that makes blacks all the easier for the DNC to keep as pets…to trot out in force on election day, then ignore in the back yard the rest of the year until they are useful again).
Taking the screeches of RAAACISM! away from Democrats will cause the Race Industry to collapse, and without the Race Industry to keep black people as pets and/or perpetual children, the black community will at last have a chance to wise up, step up, and start to join the entrepreneurial and professional classes by working hard, not expecting handouts from the government, and not looking to Democrats to send pork and freebies their way.
What’s a good name, in the Goofus/Gallant and Class vs. Crass vein, for a series of compare/contrast photo essays that will highlight the ridiculousness of the Race Industry’s constant RAAACISM! cries?
Start brainstorming…and include any ideas you have for installments of the series as well.
UPDATE: So far, our favorite suggestion has come from EricP, who brought up the idea of “Pride & Prejudice” for the series.
We could actually twist that a few different ways:
(1) Pride vs. Prejudice
(2) Pride & Prejudice
(3) Pride in Prejudice
The pride side would have black leaders behaving properly…the prejudice side would showcase the Race Industry at its worst.
On Wednesday, we went to Sidetracks 28th anniversary party here in Chicago, and ran into a lot of people we never see out in bars anymore, because so many people are unemployed and can’t afford to go out these days (welcome to the “Hope and Change” Obama economy). So, two hours of free open bar and mini-buffets attracted a lot of acquaintances we don’t get to talk to as much as we’d like, and it was nice catching up with them.
As we walked into Glass Bar, the biggest room in Sidetracks, we spotted our good friend Althea, looking GORGEOUS, in a sharp blue and white ruffled Marc Jacobs dress she got at a great consignment shop on Broadway (another economic indicator of the Obama economy: people selling their designer clothes for next to nothing to make any money they can). Althea looks like a younger, prettier, more elegant Grace Jones, with oversized personality to match, so running into her unexpectedly is always pure joy — and a guarantee for a never dull evening. That night, Althea was there with her friend Michel, who is a man, but with a French name that makes people think he’s a foreign woman (or, possibly, a male-dressing lesbian).
Althea describes Michel as her “fop”, which she says stands for “Friend of Princess”, wherein Althea’s the princess and Michel’s the male friend, which Althea claims is her way of making the best of a “fag hag” situation, since no one in our circles likes the term for a straight woman who hangs out with a gay man. “Fairy’s princess” is a nicer way to put that, but there’s still a sense of pejorative there, in that you are now calling the gay man a “fairy” instead of calling the straight woman a “hag” (in addition to calling the gay dude a “fag”, which is a double pejorative come to think of it). Normally, people put the oddity emphasis on the woman for being out with a gay guy, but Althea’s “fop” reference puts the spotlight on Michel for being her friend, the friend of a princess…a fop.
Which is also an archaic word for the kind of gay guy Michel actually is (slight, into fashion, with a little guy liner thrown in the mix), so we get Althea’s inside joke as much as we dig her killer, always appropriate style (paging Michelle Obama, here’s one of many elegant black women you could learn a thing or eleventy from).
As we were talking to Althea, she told Michel we’d gone to Gay Days at Disney this year for a few projects we were involved in, and Michel told us about his friend Dan who also went, but had a terrible time. Dan’s black, and has been accusing everyone involved with Gay Days of being RAAACISTS, which really took us by surprise because Gay Days was one of the very best times we’ve ever had…and we saw people of all shapes, sizes, stripes and colors having a ridiculously good time in Orlando. Well, Dan’s been going on and on about an incident that happened at the Doubletree host hotel, at one of the pool parties they had, where security removed Dan from the pool area for not having a party wrist band on — but Dan claims this was RAAACIST because he says he saw white people at the party who didn’t have wrist bands on who were not removed. So, Dan’s been calling the NAACP, Rainbow Push, the Human Rights Campaign, and all the usual Liberal suspects over this “outrage” for two full weeks, screaming and yelling about him being discriminated against.
Well, let us tell you this right now, WE all stayed at the host hotel. WE all went to those pool parties, where a color-coded wrist band was needed for entry to all parties (it was a different colored wrist band for every party, with two parties held every day, one in the afternoon and one in the evening). WE saw guys of all colors ejected from the pool and pool deck area for not having the right wrist bands on. Not just black people, but white guys, Gaysians, Mexicans, twinks, bears, wolves, fops, you name it. If you didn’t have your lime green wrist band on during the lime green Friday afternoon pool party, your speedo-covered butt would get hauled out of the crowd by a burly security guard, whether Lady Gaga was playing or not, regardless of your need to dance in the water to said Gaga.
The guards didn’t care if you were color-blind either. If you had a red band on and it was the green party, you got the boot until you could come back with the right band for the party. No exceptions.
In fact, they even kicked Panda out at one point, because instead of coming with us to Epcot (which he says is boring, because it’s “a museum inside a golf ball”) on the last Sunday of Gay Days, he lounged by the pool all day, and overstayed the afternoon party into the evening one (without the orange requisite night time wrist band). So, after 6pm when the afternoon’s wrist band expired, security approached Panda, and for a fleeting terrified minute he thought it was some psychic-related pre-emptive sting regarding the towels and blanket he planned to steal from the hotel when we left the next day (“because they were so soft, even on parts of (me) that are sunburned”). Instead, security just told him he needed the right wrist band to be there, so he had to go back to his room and get it.
Which, Panda did, with his usual flair, but without any sort of scene or incident. He didn’t start wailing that he was discriminated against because he is Gaysian, or because he’s chubby, or because he was wearing a fedora and sunglasses and what some of us likened to the muumuus Imelda Marcos herself favored. Panda just got off his lounge chair, told anyone who would listen he’d be right back, had a little Nebraska guy in his tiny pink Speedo hold his mimosa for him, and went back to the room to get his correct wrist band.
So, why didn’t Dan do that?
Because Dan’s one of the black people in this country who try desperately to make absolutely everything that happens to them be about their race, in hopes of either getting attention from it, or getting something for free.
As we probed Michel for more information on the “travesty” that befell this Dan character at Gay Days, we found out that, yes, indeed, Dan was demanding a refund of his hotel bill because he was discriminated against by Doubletree. It turns out Dan’s unemployed and should not have really gone to Gay Days, because Dan could not afford it, and now Dan is faced with a credit card bill that Dan does not want. So, Dan being a black man with no shame or decency has decided to invent RAAACISM! as an excuse to look for something for free, cause a scene, and burden Doubletree, Gay Days, and all sorts of other people with warrantless accusations that waste time and further make the Henry Gates wing of the black community look absolutely ridiculous for continuing the meme that everything bad that happens to blacks is because of RAAACISM.
Althea thought Dan was full of it, and told Michel so.
“Did Dan have the right wrist band on?,” Althea asked, and Michel said “no”.
“Then Dan should have been thrown out and told to get the right wrist band, case closed. Dan should worry about Dan, not what other people are doing, and whether or not he thinks other people are being told to follow the rules too, because Dan can’t see everything that’s going on and Dan is paranoid and delusional ot make assumptions Dan has no way of proving.”
We don’t know Dan, but we’d love to get Dan and Althea in a room together, because there’s nobody that can set a fool straight better than her (or, possibly, Mr. T., but Althea works without his pity).
We’d also love to see the Tea Party and grassroots efforts out there in America deal a death blow to the Race Industry in this country and get people talking about these ridiculous charges of RAAACISM lobbed whenever either black people want something for free, or when the Left wants to attack someone on the right for something unwarranted. The Left has used false accusations of RAAACISM for years to take down opponents — it’s the nuclear option the Left lets fly with reckless abandon, targeting people on a personal level and maligning them as RAAACISTS because it’s difficult-to-impossible for anyone targeted to ever prove they aren’t what they are being accused of.
The Obama campaign in 2008 used this as a very effective and favorite weapon, accusing just about everyone who opposed “The Lightbringer” of being a damn, dirty, RAAACIST. The Clintons were racists. All Hillary Clinton’s supporters were racists. Geraldine Ferraro was racist. John McCain was racist. Sarah Palin was racist. All Republicans were racists. All Clinton primary voters were racists. All McCain general election voters were racists. America is racist.
And, yet, a black man is “president”, with all of this racism just running so rampant.
Amazing, isn’t it?
We’ve reached a juncture in our nation’s history where the Race Industry needs to be shut down. For good. As so many good, decent, worthwhile businesses go under in the Obama economy, why not bankrupt the Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson/Henry Gates gravy train while we’re at it?
Listening to Michel recount Dan’s saga of imagined woe and discrimination, we flashed on a way to do just this — by recreating Dan’s life of imaginary RAAACISM on film, and carving it into little YouTube commercials calling the Race Industry out on what it truly is.
Just imagine if there were little videos of a black man walking around Chicago, claiming everything that happened to him was because of racism.
* It starts to rain and he has forgot his umbrella, but others walking passed him remembered theirs, so of course this is RAAACISM!
* It’s lunchtime, and people are lined up to buy their hotdogs from the vendor on the corner. Dan wants a hotdog, but pulls out his wallet and has no money, so he shouts RAAACISM! because he didn’t remember to get money for his lunch.
* The El train is pulling into a station and is packed with people. Only a few that were standing on the platform are able to board the train, leaving Dan and lots of others waiting for the next train. Dan screams RAAACISM! because he did not get there early enough to beat rush hour traffic.
* Dan’s in line for a movie that’s sold-out, but when he gets to the ticket taker, he has no ticket, and screams RAAACISM when he’s not allowed inside.
In the Alinksy Handbook, the greatest weapon of all is ridicule.
For whatever reason, Americans have always been afraid of taking on the Race Industry head-on, and have allowed Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson/Henry Gates and their ilk to make great sums of money by shaking down corporate America and inventing all manner of Dan-grade false accusations of RAAACISM for their personal enjoyment and profit. The black community has been wailing and crying about RAAACISM, unfoundedly and illegitimately so, for the last three decades, when the only real racism we see happening in this country is at the ballot box…where blacks race-vote for candidates based on skin color, and race-vote against gays every chance they get (like we saw with Prop-8 in California, which succeeded because of black Democrat support, no matter what lies the Left wants to tell you about Mormons).
The problem, of course, is that if you dare to talk about any of this, you will be targeted by the Left and called a RAAACIST, as that’s the only thing the Left knows how to do. The Alinsky Method does not have a defense written out to protect the use of the race-card or to defend race-baiting, because it’s assumed these weapons are counter-attack proof.
There has never been a move from the right or middle to counter the Left on these grounds, and to take away their most effective and favorite weapon, so we believe the Left is defenseless in this area.
The critical weakness they face is ridicule…if Americans start to see people like Dan as the childish, delusional charlatans they are…people who use false claims of RAAACISM to try to get things for free or as attempts to blame their own failings and shortcomings on the nebulous villain of “RAAACISM!”…then the Sharpton/Jackson/Gates industry will suffer a major blow to its credibility, and ability to inflict the damage they do on a regular basis.
Andrew Breitbart really started the ball rolling with this, by calling out the Race Industry in March over its false claims that unidentified and undocumented racial slurs were thrown at black members of Congress as they walked with Nancy Pelosi on March 20th across the Capitol Grounds to sign the Obamacare bill. James Clyburne, John Lewis, and the other shameful race-hucksters in the Congressional Black Caucus all wailed and rolled around on the floor having seizures screaming RAAACISM!…but no racial epithets were actually hurled at anyone. Despite having hundreds of cameras trained on this event, and Breitbart offering an enormous reward for footage verifying the Race Industry’s claims, no one has ever come forward to back up the CBC’s claims of RAAACISM that day.
Breitbart had the guts to — FINALY — call these clowns and lying frauds out for what they really are, and they slinked away and backed down when they realized they were — AT LAST — being forced to put up or shut up.
We think Breitbart’s spirit needs to go further, and wish there was a group out there that could hire actors, writers, and videographers to produce the “Dan” videos we described above…and really start to communicate to Americans that it is, in fact, okay to call these hucksters out. The Race Industry is nothing but a pack of shameless bullies inventing these race scandals to turn a profit. People like Dan follow the Sharpton/Jackson/Gates example in their own lives, and use RAAACISM as their get-out-0f-jail card for almost every situation in which they find themselves wrong, embarrassed, short on funds, or desiring something for free.
That really needs to stop.
It’s going to take guts to stop it.
And, we believe, it’s going to take creative ridicule and an orchestrated grassroots effort to take the Race Industry down once and for all.
Can you even begin to imagine how toothless and lost the Left would be without its go-to weapon, and the control over the black community this cudgel has always allowed Democrats to maintain?
Think about it.
Andrew Breitbart takes on the Race Industry: challenges race-baiter (and Steny Hoyer's boyfriend) John Lewis to put up or shut up
Andrew Breitbart has offered a $10,000 reward to anyone who can provide him with video from Sunday March 21st, 2010 that supports disgraced race-baiter (and Steny Hoyer’s boyfriend) John Lewis’ claims he was repeatedly called a “n*****” as he and Steny held hands and waltzed across the Capitol grounds en route to urinate on our Constitution.
Perhaps, at last, the Race Industry has run out of crying wolf free passes.
America at large needs to challenge the Race Industry whenever it claims “n*****” is used and the MSM takes those lies and runs with it.
There were THOUSANDS of people watching John Lewis and Steny Holder hold hands lovingly on Sunday, prancing with Nancy Pelosi to “their historic victory”.
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
Almost all of them, we bet, had cell phones on them at the very least. 90% of those cells have the capacity to record video images, even if it’s shoddy.
At least 50% of the people there had digital cameras with basic video recording capabilities.
It’s impossible to believe no less than 25% of the people with cameras on them weren’t recording Lewis, Hoyer, and Pelosi’s hand-holding waltz across the grounds. From every shot we’ve seen of this, there are dozens of hands raised in the air holding their cameras. A good many of them MUST have decent audio of the ambient sounds of that waltz.
So, where are all the videos showing the crowd shouting N*****! to justify the Race Industry’s broken record cries of RAAAAAACISM!.
Breitbart’s calling these people out…and calling Steny Hoyer’s boyfriend a liar.
Because John Lewis is a liar.
He is a shameless, disgraced, race-baiting, opportunistic, liar.
We’re grateful to Breitbart for telling it like it is.
AND, we’re so sick of this garbage that we’re going to reinstitute our tradition from the 2008 campaign, where every time the Race Industry or the MSM screams RAAACISM! where no racism exists, we’re going to run shots of super hot muscle hunk guys in their underwear, so Internet searches for John Lewis, the Race Industry, Al Sharpton, Henry Gates, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder, and all the other race-baiters bring up endless pics of smoking hot himbos in their undies.
The black community is notoriously and unapologetically homophobic. The Left, in general, despite its lip service, is also virulently anti-gay, despite guys like Anderson Cooper facing the MSM, which is a de facto propaganda arm of the DNC. So, if these people want to scream RAAACISM!, we’ll address their homophobia by forever associating them with gym bunnies in their jock straps. Something tells us those Democrats working in the West Wing today that were regulars of Man’s Country back when they lived in Chicago sure won’t be complaining.
By the looks of John Lewis’ inexplicably bizarre decision to hold Steny Hoyer’s hand on Sunday, when they weren’t even crossing the street, maybe he won’t complain either.
One of our missions in life is to take down the Race Industry in America, that cabal of Leftists who use race-baiting and false accusations of RAACISM! to either destroy political, personal, and business rivals or manufacture controversy to benefit themselves financially somehow. The Leftist MSM enables the Race Industry, and works hand in glove to propagate and perpetuate the claims of RAACISM! made against someone.
These false charges are reputation and business killers. As we’ve personally learned, it’s expensive and time-consuming to fight back and prosecute those who falsely accuse you of being a RAAACIST! (but, in our case at least, no matter what it costs or how long it takes, we will certainly take every offender to court and prosecute to the fullest extent possible, no matter what country these people are based in). It’s just impossible to put the Race Industry’s malevolent genie back in a bottle once unleashed — the fall-out from a full-frontal RAAACISM! charge lingers forever on Google. It will never go away.
Calling someone a RAAACIST! is like a woman accusing an innocent man of RAPE! Very seldom does the false-accuser suffer anywhere near as much as the man she wrongfully accused. His life gets shredded to tatters, and more often than not, she gets a slap on the wrist, smug knowing the damage she did to him is 100 times what any court can do to her in return. How does the man prove he didn’t rape a woman? How does anyone prove he or she is not a RAAACIST?
Here in Boystown we want to present you with a real-time example of the politics of personal destruction aimed by Liberals at a private citizen, for the Liberals involved’s own personal gain.
Leftists have falsely charged RAACISM!, using their nuclear arsenal against a business right here on Halsted, in an attempt to alienate the straight business owner from the LGBTQ community and cost him customers at a time when every bar on the strip is doing everything it can to attract business in a down economy.
There’s a bar we very rarely talk about called Spin, located right at the official start of Boystown, the intersection of Halsted and Belmont.
Spin is a very young crowd, with people who just turned 21, so it’s not our scene. Guys go to Spin until they age out in their late 20s, at which point they head to Scarlet or Roscoes, and then ultimately on to Sidetracks, MiniBar, or Cocktail when they hit their mid-30s. After that, in their 50s or so, they hang out at Little Jim’s, Buck’s, NorthEnd, or Lucky Horseshoe (if they dig strippers). After that, in the LGBTQ community, they pretty much become invisible.
Guys are very bar-loyal in Chicago. They hit the same ones again and again, where everyone has his set of bar friends unique to that place. They’ll keep up the same routine until, as we said, they get too old for that bar and move up the street to a new haunt.
We tell you this because lesbians are totally different from gay men. They have no bar loyalty whatsoever. When they meet a woman, and start dating, the joke is that lesbians plan on moving in with her after the first date, and then start looking to buy a place in the suburbs and get married after date #3. Gay guys, no matter how long they date someone, keep going out. The boyfriend keeps going to his bar with his friends, and the other guy keeps sticking with his crowd too. We never stop going out. And even in a recession, we keep forking over $5.00 for Pilsners (plus $2 tip).
Lesbians just do not support bars like this. They might go out once a month. Guys go out three or four times a week. So, whenever you hear anyone criticize gay bars for not catering exclusively to lesbians, you need to visit the metaphoric graveyard of bars whose owners DID stake everything they had in the bank on lesbian customer loyalty: it’s failure after failure because lesbians JUST DO NOT support bars the way gay men do. Bars are just not as important to them as they are to us…where clubs are gay men’s “church” and the center of our community. Like that or not, it’s true. A lesbian RESTAURANT has a better chance of surviving than a restaurant for gay men, however, because we’re much less likely to eat out as much and establish that sort of bond with a place serving food. It’s the same thing with a restaurant catering to young, single women watching their figures. That’s not going to succeed as well as one catering to older, steak eating businessmen. So, there’s always an interesting dynamic like this in play.
We tell you all of the above because you need to understand exactly what sort of attack was launched against Spin nightclub here in Boystown and appreciate precisely what the people behind it hope to gain and whom they seek to manipulate to help them with their goal.
What happens here in Boystown, using the Left’s nukes, happens all over the country, in different communities, whenever the Left wants to take down an opponent, using Alinsky Methods.
In the interest of full disclosure, we know the owner of Spin, David Gassman, from the neighborhood, and because friends of ours happen to live above the nightclub. Gassman, as unfortunately named as he is, happens to be a great guy. He’s a straight man who is a strong supporter of the gay community, and all of us here have worked with him on various projects through the years here in Boystown. He might not give as much money to the LGBTQ community as someone like Art Johnson at Sidetracks does, but that’s like saying someone’s not good enough of a person because they didn’t do as much charity work as Mother Theresa. Art Johnson is a living legend who devoted his life to the community, as one of its members. Gassman, as a straight man, has done more than any straight man we know, and more than most of the other owners of bars on the street.
On February 20th, Spin hosted something called “The Kid Sister Show”, a lesbian event put on by A&C Productions, which attracted a lot of black Southsiders apparently. We’ve told you before about the problems that have been caused in recent years by the Center on Halsted, which has been attracting Southsiders to Boystown and giving them a base of operations from which to mug, assault, and generally terrorize the guys who live here. It’s strictly forbidden in this liberal city to talk about the black people riding the trains up to Boystown to commit crime up here, and then head back home with their “winnings”. To a person, the liberals here in Boystown want to pretend this is not happening, and that as soon as the weather breaks young blacks from the Southside don’t congregate at the Center on Halsted until it closes, and then head out onto the sidestreets off Halsted to mug single gay guys who happen to get too drunk, or have their iPods blasting, and don’t hear or see trouble coming their way.
But, we won’t be cowed into silence by the liberal PC-brigade. This problem is happening, and when clubs host rap, hip-hop, and other similar musical acts that attract Southsiders up to Boystown, they have problems with crowd control, violence, pickpocketing, and various other issues. Just because liberals don’t want to admit this happens doesn’t mean it’s NOT happening.
But, Spin proves that just because this stuff happens, it doesn’t mean a club can’t hold these events if it wants to take the risk, which Spin clearly takes by hosting whatever “Kid Sister” was.
We’re not sure what dispute arose between the bar and A&C Productions, and we don’t know what sort of altercation took place involving customers, but after the “Kid Sister” show, the owner of A&C screamed RAAACISM! at Spin and Gassman, personally. What we think happened is this, based on our own experience doing club promotions in Rochester, Cleveland, and Chicago: whatever the “Kid Sister” show was supposed to make, it didn’t. As we stated before, lesbians do not support clubs or events the way gay men do. Lesbian events are few in Boystown because they rarely break even. If A&C thought they’d get $2,000 at the door for entry fees, and only got $1,200 instead, we’d consider that a good take for a lesbian act.
Especially in this economy, where even events featured half-dressed boys are hard to sell out.
When you put on a show at a club like Spin, the contract you sign is typically a guarantee for liquor and door sales. We’ve event planned enough in this town to tell you that if you don’t make your liquor minimum, you as the promoter will have to pay the difference. Since we don’t have access to the Spin-A&C contract, we can only speculate on what the dispute is based on our previous experiences working with not only Spin, but most of the bars in Boystown. To takeover the whole bar for something like the “Kid Sister Show”, A&C would have had to guarantee Spin that they would at LEAST make whatever they typically would on February 20th (a Saturday) if “The Kid Sister Show” had not been there. Plus, Spin would have required something to make it worth their while to run the risk of alienating loyal male customers that night, who might not want to be there for a lesbian event. A&C was contractually obliged to make sure the night was worth that risk to Spin.
From what we know, A&C did not deliver on their end of the bargain. So, either the door take was much less than it was supposed to be or the customers “Kid Sister” brought in didn’t buy enough alcohol to meet Spin’s contracted guarantee for the night. Spin, we believe, insisted A&C pay the contract penalties they thus incurred, and A&C balked at this.
So, the next day they shouted RAAACISM!, which, as we’ve said, is Liberals’ favorite nuke to lob at anyone who challenges or disagrees with them. Because it was a black-heavy event, A&C figured this was a great charge to arbitrarily make against Spin.
A&C went further than this though, and also tried to hit Spin with the lesbian angle too, claiming Spind does not do enough lesbian events…which we believe is their way of trying to weasel out of their contract, by insisting something along the lines of, “Well, we shouldn’t have to pay that guarantee, because you don’t do enough lesbian events, so when you FINALLY do one you owe the community that and need to eat the loss. Plus, you are RAAACIST!”.
The lesbian attack angle on straight-male-owned spin brought out all sorts of opportunists, including party promoters who work with a rival bar down the street, called Circuit.
These promoters would LOVE to see Spin lose business, because they hope they’d be able to pick up those customers at Circuit, which has really been struggled. For those who don’t know, Circuit is not a regular bar/club, but is a big venue that used to be an autoshop. This is the “club” next to the Dakota Building, across from Whole Foods, that we have talked about (where the Dakota residents keep trying to have Circuit closed, because they say it is too noisy, even though Circuit was there, being noisy, before the Dakota was build and these babies bought condos next to a loud gay bar).
Circuit is called “Circuit” because it’s like a neverending parade of circuit parties — themed events run by different promoters every weekend. There are Latin nights, lesbian nights, hip hop nights, and different themed parties like “Prehistoric”, “Military”, “Super Hero”, “Christmas in July”, etc. It’s like a restaurant that would serve pancakes one day, and the next time you’d go there, it would be Chinese, and then next week it would be a fine dining steak restaurant. And every night had a different chef/owner…those are the “promoters” who only make money if they sell out their event and get their customers to make their contractual liquor minimum.
A&C Productions and Circuit’s party planners decided to launch a Facebook attack on Spin, getting various disgruntled Spin employees to badmouth the bar. This is a very Boystown thing to do, where people are fired from bars all the time, usually for being drunk and on drugs at work.
Spin is one of the better employers on the street, ironically because Gassman is straight. There is no casting couch to work at Spin, unlike at places like MiniBar, where if the owners do not want to sleep with you, you don’t get the job. And Spin, unlike MiniBar, doesn’t make its employees go shirtless…AND the bar hires women, not just hot young twinks or big muscle guys. You can work at Spin passed 30, and there doesn’t seem to be the monthly “evaluation” of your face and body to see if you have enough of the “look” left in you to keep your job.
So, we know for a fact people who are fired from Spin deserved the firing. There is a large amount of drug and alcohol abuse amongst bar staff. You would be shocked at the number of raging alcoholics who work as bartenders and barbacks. And, invariably, when these people lose a job that’s GREAT, relatively easy money, which many people are waiting to take their place in, they aim their ire at management, inventing all sorts of lies to cover their firing.
People are plotting against them.
The owners hate lesbians.
Management is RAAACIST!
The reason we went into all of this and told you about what’s happening at Spin is because it’s the first time we’re aware of someone trying to nuke a businessman with both RAAACIST! and HOMOPHOBIC! charges at the same time.
The way we see it, A&C Productions and the party promoters working in cahoots with Circuit saw an opportunity to nuke Gassman, a straight man, and slur and libel him with as many charges as they could throw out there, hoping something would stick, intending to create a controversy that would hurt his business while helping struggling Circuit’s, with the real intent of making so many problems for Gassman that he’s distracted from whatever he’s owed contractually for the failed “Kid Sister” event.
This is how Leftists operate.
If they do not get their way, they make up false accusations to smear you, hoping to offensively crippled you so they do not have to defend against the contractual actions that can be taken against them for not living up to their end of a deal.
Whenever anyone is called a RAAACIST, coast to coast people need to stand up for that person, and need to help shout down the person doing the race-baiting, so that some day in our lifetimes this sort of tactic will no longer be effective.
As things stand, Leftists don’t seem to have anything to lose by launching their nukes, as they have no concept of mutually assured destruction. We hope Gassman pursues those involved in this aggressively, to teach others out there a lesson that these sorts of War Games wont stand.
Could Anderson Cooper become the first gay nightly news anchor – kicking Katie Couric's sorry butt to the curb?
This is a pretty interesting development, which we think is a huge mistake on CBS’s myopic part, but word is the network is planning on booting Katie Couric’s sorry butt to the curb and replacing her with Anderson Cooper. Apparently, they think they can save a lot of money by just having him use the same wardrobe and makeup already setup for Couric, because they think “The Coop will look fabulous in anything”. We’ve seen him at Whole Foods at like 7 in the morning at Columbus Circle, so they’re wrong there, let us tell you.
We can’t stand Anderson Cooper, and don’t believe Americans will like him on the nightly news much more than they liked Katie Couric.
The suits at CBS think Cooper is popular at CNN, but his show’s been losing viewership for the last two years. His agents are probably telling the network that’s just because both CNN and MSNBC have been tanking in general, and that it’s not Cooper’s fault. While it’s true Cooper has a huge gay following, because everyone in Boystown loves seeing one of our own reading off TelePrompTers like a big boy, all growed-up and on the TV, it’s doubtful any of these people will suddenly start watching the CBS nightly news broadcast just because CBS suddenly made it 75% more fabulous with the addition of the still-closeted Cooper (who, strangely, just bought an old firehouse in Manhattan with his boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, the owner of a crappy NYC gay bar called Eastern Bloc…and according to the Enquirer is planning on adopting a Haitian orphan with him…but still hasn’t come out).
Why don’t we like Cooper?
He’s smarmy, and his “teabagging” slur against the Tea Party demonstrators is the kind of cheap jab bad “comediennes” here in Boystown take at people on Open Mic Talent Show night at Pie Hole or Spin, in a bad “Boystown Got Talent” revue. Teabagging? Really? Cooper said this on the air and is being considered for a network spot? Really?
We’d love to see Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackspn, Henry Gates, and Louis Farrakhan rev up the old race-baiting engines and go after CBS over the Cooper-Couric two-step, because why ISN’T CBS making the historic and unprecedented move of bringing a black face to the nightly news? Why isn’t CBS going to install the first BLACK news anchor once Couric is deservedly fired for being so terrible?
Lester Holt from NBC is awesome. We really like him, and would probably actually start thinking about maybe watching CBS’s nightly news somehow if Holt was anchoring. The man is dignified, never makes lame jokes at others’ expense, is trustworthy, and always carries himself with an air of authority and authenticity.
Compare that to Cooper, and his antics with Kathy Griffin the last few New Year’s Eves.
We know we live in anything-goes times, but it would be nice if the person reading the news each night on the broadcast networks was someone who never co-hosted anything with that train wreck. We know she’s everywhere, so that’s going to be tough, but it’s possible.
We’d really love Ann Curry from NBC to take Couric’s spot, because that would probably make poor Katie’s head explode, but we don’t think CBS would ever do that.
But, Lester Holt sure seems like a possibility…especially if we can rev the Race Industry up to caterwaul and roll around on the floor outside CBS’s New York offices to demand it.
Here’s something that occurred to us that’s actually a larger commentary on Liberals in general: have you noticed the parallels between the Cult of Climate Change and the Race Industry, in terms of what they do to their critics and how nonreceptive their adherants are to reality?
Thinking back to high school chemistry class, where the nuns insisted we keep our lab journals as neat and accurate as possible, there is just no excuse whatsoever for the Anthropogenic Global Warming brigade to “not be able to find” the data they claim proves APOCALYPSE IS NOW! If we had to, back in Ohio Catholic school, prove to a miligram how much precipitate resulted from junior scientist experiment #112, then why doesn’t the scientific method or accurate accounting apply to the self-proclaimed “climatologists” insisting the West tank our economies to offset “carbon damage”?
Science is supposed to be the least subjective thing on the planet. Journalists hide their sources for fear of sources drying up. “Fiction” writers spin their tales, hiding the true identities of the real-life people they base all their stories on. But scientists are supposed to collect verifiable data, analyze it, publish their results, and have their data sets available for accuracy-checking.
At least, that’s what we learned in chemistry class, like 20 years ago.
Maybe things have changed and scientists are now just making things up, and are allowed to be irrationally angry and petulant when questioned.
All of this reminds us of the Race Industry in this country, the bizarre institution headed by Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Henry Gates, James Clyburne, John Lewis, Eric Holder, and our current president, Dr. Utopia.
The Race Industry refuses to be questioned in anything it does, because questioning the Race Industry is RAAACIST.
If the Race Industry calls someone a RAAACIST, it is RAAACIST to stop and wonder if this is actually true or not. You are supposed to just react unquestioningly to whatever Sharpton, Gate, Jackson et al are ranting and raving about today.
You are not allowed to think for yourselves.
You are not allowed to hold the Race Industry to any sort of standard in terms of honest, truthfulness, or sanity.
It is forbidden to wonder what’s really going on behind the curtains, and what the latest fuss is REALLY about.
This seems to be how Liberals operate in general.
They are loud, and scream and yell at their opponents to force them into submission. The louder Sharpton, Gates, and Jackson scream about RAAACISM! in a particular instance, the more we know there’s no actual racism to be found, and that these shameless hucksters are just at it again, running their tired, old, but regrettably effective schtick.
The same thing seems to be true for the con artists behind the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming fraud.
Essentially, these “climatologists” took the Sharpton/Gates/Jackson playbook and used it to bully anyone who didn’t agree with them — in the same way black race-baiters bully and bludgeon anyone who calls them out on their own lies, half-truths, and exaggerations.
Democrats and the Liberal MSM give Sharpton/Gates/Jackson more legitimacy and authority than these clowns deserve. The same is true for the “climatologists” behind the AGW scam — where untrained scientists with only high school and college chemistry courses could have kept more accurate, neater records than these would-be experts.
We’re truly disgusted Democrats are racing to make excuses to try to cover the climate data fraud, in the same way Democrats run cover for Sharpton/Gates/Jackson and perpetuate the idea that if you criticize the current administration for anything, you are a damn dirty RAAACIST.
It really is like they are using the same playbook, which we see more clearly every single day is straight off the desk of Alinksy.
Maybe there’s a way Climategate can take down the Race Industry and the current Liberal dominated DNC as well?
Can’t wait to see how much hate mail we’ll get from Liberals for speaking the truth on this one, so here goes.
Today on the bus we had one of those Chicago moments that make us realize a full frontal assault on the Race Industry is truly needed, starting now, to reap dividends in 2010 and 2012.
The bus was packed with holiday shoppers — packed to bursting, actually, to the point where people were almost hanging off the side like it was New Delhi and not Chicago.
A black family was on the bus, with a very sick baby who was vomiting and passing gas loudly for a long part of the ride (in a movie, the baby would have been played by Eddie Murphy in a fat suit, swaddled in pink, encased in a giant stroller blocking most of the aisle).
There were four or five adults, and a few teenaged kids in the group (all of whom would also be played by Eddie Murphy in fat suits, because Eddie Murphy hates the world and wants to punish us all). One of the male adults thought the flatulence was hilarious, and the rest of the troupe agreed, laughing their heads off at the gassy, vomiting baby (which, we note, was allowed to puke all over the floor, with no effort made to clean it up and, truth be told, no evidenced concern for the baby itself, who was convincingly reenacting the Exorcist for long stretches of the ride down Halsted).
That man took everything on a very ugly turn and racialized what was already a gross and vulgar bus ride.
He started saying, “Oh, lordy, look at all these white people, all pretending they don’t smell nothing. ‘Oh, why, I never,’ they’re all saying and pretend they can’t smell she pooted. Ha ha ha. Pretend you can’t hear me too, ha ha ha. You white people are so stupid, ha ha ha. That baby pooted and y’all pretend it ain’t nothing, ha ha ha. White people.”
We would have quoted him verbatim, because we wrote down word for word what he said in one of the little Moleskins we carry with us at all time, but then we’d be accused of RAAACISM, surely, for accurately reflecting the poor grammar, expletives, and true spirit of his remarks. He was like something out of an old movie Liberals successfully got banned from the air — only he was REAL, and unfortunately a character we see walking around causing problems in Chicago ALL THE TIME.
How many times can something be “an unfair racial stereotype” when it’s TRUE, and you see it right in front of your face on the CTA in Chicago?
After we got off the bus, because we couldn’t take any more of this (the “pooting”, and the racism directed at white people from this black family), and decided to walk the rest of the way and get some fresh air, we thought about what would have happened if a white person (or, really, if an Asian or a Hispanic or Native American) had been talking about or making fun of black people on the bus the way the black family was making fun of whites. There would have been a riot, probably, with media choppers descended upon the scene, possibly air-lifting in Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson themselves.
Can you imagine?
What’s interesting is that we didn’t feel comfortable ourselves calling that loudmouth out on the bus. One of us wanted to, but was stared down by the rest, in that “Sebastian, don’t start another bar fight over misogyny” look given whenever Liberals in a room bring out a two-minute-hate about something and we stand up for whatever woman’s being dragged through coals that day. The impulse was to say to that black man, “Excuse me, but what does race have to do with anything here? People are being polite and pretending they don’t smell the baby’s flatulence or strawberry-pink vomit everywhere, because they know it’s not the baby’s fault and they don’t want to get into any argument with you, who is clearly looking for some kind of fight. People are tired, they just want to get home, and so they are pretending this little vignette’s not even going on in front of them. It has nothing to do with RACE, but manners”.
It’s also really about people not wanting to say boo to that family lest they be called RAAACISTS!, probably, because the terror of being labeled a RAAACIST has been applied so effectively in the last 30 years that families like the one on the bus use race as a weapon and enabler of bad behavior EVERY DAY. It works, so they do it.
They are, in fact, ENCOURAGED to behave this way by the “leaders of the black community”, such as Sharpton, Jackson, Henry Gates, Eric Holder, John Lewis, James Clyburne, Charlie Rangle, and our illustrious president and first lady themselves.
Maybe that was the whole point in that man saying, so the whole bus could hear, “Oh, you white people this and that”. He was clearly not a stupid person, was decently dressed, and looked like he had a job. He had sense enough to know that it was pretty bad they were just letting a baby spew strawberry-pink vomit on the floor of a moving bus, while the baby crepitated more than Oprah after chili day at Harpo Studios. We think part of what he did was pre-empt any sort of criticism of the family, by “calling white people out” and saying the things everyone on the bus was thinking about the baby so that no one could actually say them — lest he then call them RAAACISTS for saying anything bad about the black family’s bad behavior.
It’s like on a bad date when someone who’s fat or balding talks about how people hold his being fat and balding against him, so that if the person across the table from him at dinner goes there, that person would look insensitive and prejudiced.
Great psychology there.
We bet the Race Industry gives seminars on this stuff.
And all of this makes us wonder why a concerted, full frontal assault on the Race Industy itself has never been mounted.
Race cards all expired on January 20th, 2009 at twelve noon when the current president took office. It is no longer legitimate for any black person in this or any other country to claim they are being held back by anyone in power, when the person with the most power in the entire world is a biracial black-identifying man.
The MSM has promoted the idea that if you criticize our 44th president in any way, you are a RAAACIST.
If you think a black person is wrong in any way, you are a RAAACIST.
If you are the victim of anything a black person does — from vomiting on the bus, to muggings (of which we here have received TWO, one in New York and one in Chicago), to the crime spree black transvestites in the Center on Halsted Gang have been on in Boystown — then you are a RAAACIST for not appreciating how your victimizers are victims too.
You damn dirty RAAACISTS.
If we had YouTube capabilities and any skill at all in editing and design, we’d put out commercials we’d love to go viral that would tell the general public how okay it is to tell black people they are wrong.
One commercial could be the vignette above, with the crass Klumps family out for a ride on the bus, ruining everyone’s day.
The voiceover could say, “It is not racist to tell black people they are wrong. It is not racist to be disgusted by crass behavior. It is not racist to tell a loudmouth to SHUT THE F*** UP. The Race Industry is a fraud. Stop supporting it.”
This could be a whole series.
It is not racist to hire a more qualified person if the black applicant won’t do as good of a job as the white one.
It is not racist, if you are a waiter providing excellent service, to expect a 15% tip, minimum, from a black table the same as you would from every other table — and be upset when the black table stiffs you or leaves the equivalent of 5% instead.
It is not racist to clutch your bag tighter and cross the street if you see three big black guys in hoodies headed your way — this is, in fact, how you keep from getting mugged and having everything valuable you own stolen, as we learned here quite well in 2009.
It is not racist to tell a black person whatever they are complaining about has nothing at all to do with race.
Not everything bad that happens to all of us here in the course of a day is because we are gay. Some of it’s because we didn’t plan ahead well enough, didn’t do things we were supposed to do, and because we were lazy. Late for work? It’s not because we are gay that we didn’t get a space on the crowded bus — it’s because we didn’t allow enough time for that possibility. Overslept? It’s not because we are gay that somebody didn’t wake us up — we should have woken up our damn selves. Rejected by a hottie at the bar — it’s not because we are gay, or too gay, or not gay enough — he was just not that into us.
We believe Dr. Utopia receiving the affirmative action Nobel Prize was a tipping point for many people, whether they realize it or not. That was such a colossal joke, there are still those we know — educated people — who are CONVINCED it was honestly a joke, where The Onion somehow punked the world and no one in Norway bothered to correct it.
The national reserve of Race Industry-dependent white guilt was used up in 2008, which is something else many people (to their detriment, ultimately) don’t realize (paging Sharpton, Jackson, Gates, Holder, et al).
Couple that with the MSM fawning over Dr. Utopia as the greatest president in our history just because he is a biracial black-identifying man, and there’s a window of opportunity where people for the first time in DECADES could be willing to exorcise the racial boogeymen the Left depends on.
Standing up to the Race Industry will take guts.
We saw how hard this is on that bus ride. We had a chance there, in a small way, and didn’t want to make a scene.
But, just imagine if commercials like the one we talked about for YouTube really could be made, and actually put on real TV somehow. It would set off a cultural FIRESTORM. “You are not a racist for disagreeing with a black person”.
That’s such a simple concept, and so true, but it would absolutely be a stake through the heart of Liberalism (which depends not only on lockstep black voting allegiance, but the stranglehold racialized politics holds on many Americans who fear ever stepping even slightly out of line because they’d then be branded RAAACISTS).
