A ‘RACIST?’ WHO’S TO SAY?

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY JAN. 15, 2018) — Linda Tyer is a racist. Earl Persip is a racist. Dan Valenti is a racist. Milt Plum is a racist. They are of a race, the human race (a sprint, so the ish-ka-bible tells us in Genesis, won by Adam, cuz’ he was first).

“ist,” a suffix added to a noun to indicate a state of being preponderant in a person often by reason of attitude or employed aptitude. There. Is that good enough? We are all racists as in “of a race.” Today, however, the word “racist” employed as an epithet has lost all meaning. The word cannot help but be an inscrutable blur at a time when anything can offend anybody and everyone can claim minority status.

Is Donald Trump a racist because he called a continent (Africa) and a bunch of third-world countries “shitholes?” The answer has little to do with racism but much to do with  a different “ism,” those being conservatism or progressivism. If you be ideologically defined by either of those isms, you’ll likely say that Trump isn’t or is a racist, respectively. That tells us the matter devolves into politics, that peculiar power granted from remote corners to companies of folk easily seduced by yet another “ism.” That be collectivism or, more precisely, the comfort of group illogic, the fear that drives people away from thinking for themselves.

Anyone of independent mind could and would never reasonably presume a man as remote as President of the United States, let alone an oligarch such as Trump, to be any type of encroaching condition indicated by today’s temporary flashing as seen in the cavalierly applied understanding of “racist.” Who can say what another person is without direct experience of the “I live along side him” type? As one of THE PLANET’s correspondents observed, we don’t possess the power to look into another’s soul. Judgment does not come from a body of light but a body of ignorant fire, God excluded.

Does Trump’s casual use of language come as a surprise to anyone? What Trump’s opponents damn with holiness his supporters call honest and refreshing. As for THE PLANET, we personally would never and have never referred to a country, a continent, or a class as a shithole. Perhaps everyone on the political scale from Elizabeth Warren to Jeff Sessions ought to be reminded that “democracies elect their sewage” (Ezra Pound). We’ve seen that in every president since Nixon and, in Pittsfield, every mayoral election since Don Butler.

For THE PLANET? We don’t know who Trump is, so for us, nothing. We leave such judgments for others. We assess executive power on action. The most important function of government is the handling of the money supply, in other words, the economy, stupid. By that account, Trump has done well, which of course is no more his fault that the deficit.

A person’s job is to live responsibility, true to goodness derived from a fearlessly honest inner code. The soul’s job, if we may speak of something even more ill-defined than “racist,” is “to build light” (another insight from Uncle Ez).

We might suggest a retreat from judgment and a look at the splinters and beams that squish the blink in all of our respective eyes. It’s never too late to try the magnificent.

The Planet could have gone farther on this. The use of the word “racist” is usually an attempt by the accuser to signal their virtue. If someone calls Trump a “racist” they are not one themselves. The signalling of virtue is not only behind the label “racist” but also the “me too” movement. They accuse men of actions that they happen to find offensive and try to destroy their lives with the accusations without offering any evidence other than many accusations. It signals virtue to support them. The definition of virtue is what we do when nobody is watching, everything else is hypocrisy.

Well thank you. By the way, genetic scientists have long abandoned the concept of “race” since it can’t be defined genetically. Geneticist can define race in other species, such as chimps, but not in humans. Of course genetic differences exist but these are related to country of origin not to some defined subset of the population we call “black” or “white”.

Equality of Opportunity! Everyone has the same chance to succeed in life. But, that is not how the real world works, unfortunately. Trump was born into a wealthy family. He was given many advantages most could only dream of having. He is giving more money to the wealthy than they already have, while the underclass grows larger and larger by the day. I believe that Trump and members of his administration are racist. That is how he got elected, but it will backfire on him in 2020!

If the countries being referenced as ‘shitholes’ offer so much opportunity and are such fine places to live, then why are so many in those respective populations so desperately seeking to emigrate elsewhere (and especially to America)?
If one examines the extremely low costs-of-living in Haiti or Venezuela or Nigeria, such places represent incredible value. U.S. Dollars are truly prized.
For the cost of a poverty-level existence in Berkshire County, one could easily afford a spacious home with maid, cook, and chauffeur in these sunny, faraway climes.
Yet, where are the hoards of Berkshire intellectuals and glitterati rushing to move to destinations such as these where their American cash would be welcomed?

Comments from Aveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, about Trump being a racist due to remarks he supposedly made during a closed door meeting. How the media and Progressives twisted his remarks so they could cry racist as they will doing for the next 3 year:

She said that Trump has done excellent work in highlighting the important accomplishments of her uncle, including officially declaring his Georgia birthplace a national historic park.

“Racism is just a word that is being bandied about and thrown… at the president unjustly,” she said. “President Trump is not a racist.”

King said that, in his reported remarks, Trump was not disparaging Africans or Haitians but instead calling attention to the fact many of their governments are inadequate and corrupt.

“Some of their own leaders have taken advantage of them,” she said.

Progressives need to be criticized. They are the ones who want to impeach Trump. Should we stand by quietly and let them continue to try to do so for the next 3 years? How about waiting to see if his policies work? If his policies don’t work, people will move on to another president. It’s a natural process, but Progressives are determined to not let that process happen.

Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, was on FOX news this morning singing the praises of President Donald Trump. Unemployment in the African American community is down. President Trump is fighting to create jobs for African Americans. He isn’t just all talk like most politicians who say pretty lines, but do nothing. President Trump gets results.

Alveda King is a friend of Donald Trump. She says she KNOWS President Trump is NOT a racist. Would Alveda King be friends with a man who is a racist?!? She quoted the words from one of Martin Luther King’s most powerful speeches:

“I am convinced that men hate each other because they fear each other. They fear each other because they don’t know each other, and they don’t know each other because they don’t communicate with each other, and they don’t communicate with each other because they are separated from each other.” Dr. Martin Luther Those words certainly ring true for right now in this country.

Radical Democrats are determined to tear our country apart for the next 3 years with their cries of “racism”. Will you really go so far as accusing Martin Luther King’s niece as being bought off? Where does it stop? Aveda King is an African American woman. She represents everything the left says they are fighting for, but she isn’t one of them so she shouldn’t be believed?

This all fits in with what Martin Luther King said about keeping people separated. In order for the left to take power again they need to keep people divided. They do this by constantly ACCUSING people they don’t like of one thing after another.

Dan, one can and should not ever judge someone based on a single comment or a single moment or a first impression. However, when someone establishes a body of work over 50 years or so, a consistent bodg of work, actual informed conclusions can be drawn. Trump has been proving himself a racist through words and actions for decades. Thr Shithole and Norway utterances were merely the latest entries in a long and obviously intentional string. Read about it here: https://www.newyorker.com/news/our-columnists/trump-shithole-comment-racist-in-the-oval-office and here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/01/15/opinion/leonhardt-trump-racist.html
Its time to stop making excuses for him, enabling him, and start rebuking him publicly. This is unacceptable in a neighbor, a relative and certainly in the president of the United States.

Rich coming from Democrats about not making excuses for their leaders. Barack Obama was ignoring ISIS killing millions of Christians when Trump quickly took care of the problem and drove them out of the areas they had been occupying. Obama could have done the same but chose not to. Obama had disastrous foreign policy which is why we are having so many problems now. Obama’s idea of foreign policy was to give lots of money to nations threatening to annihilate us. That’s not foreign policy, that is appeasement. Bringing ebola patients into the country wasn’t a great decision either, but we went through that with several people including a nurse becoming extremely ill and undoubtedly will have problems for the rest of her life.

All of it was good for Democrats and the liberal media and Obama continued to be coddled by the media. So no, we are not making excuses for Trump. You and your fellow Progressives are on a daily fishing expedition to find things to make Trump look bad. It’s all about shaming. It’s what Progressives do best since their policies do not work.

Progressives also did VERY LITTLE IF ANYTHING over the years to help African Americans and yet Trump is doing so much, but still he is called racist.

You can’t question my sanity. That goes against the liberal playbook of how to treat women. It’s also more name calling and shaming rather than having a real conversation and discussing the facts.

Progressives have done nothing to pull African Americans out of poverty and I stand by that statement. Trump wants to improve the job situation in this country and as the statistics prove, African Americans are finding jobs better than ever before. That is real progress and will improve lives for African Americans.

Trumps is an idiot but just because he used the word “shithole” in a private meeting, in reference to countries in Africa, doesn’t mean he’s a racist. That is his opinion and he can express it in his own office. It is not like he did it in a tweet or on tv. And by the way Pittsfield’s a shithole too. That’s my opinion, like it or not.

p.s. I guess it was okay for clinton and kennedy to boff their interns in their office but it’s not okay for trump to say the word “shithole”. Gimme a break!

I could never understand the Jackie Robinson Story,full of racism of course, yet when those who are racist and against him as a Black Man,accept him because of his ability to play baseball.After watching the Movie, the first thing that was clear to me was that he was a great man, forget baseball. This is why Trumps comments are so offensive, he doesn’t dignify the people but the origin of which they came. Trump is clearly a racist.

African Americans are benefiting from the Trump presidency and Progressives can’t stand it. More African Americans are finding jobs. Progressives have done nothing to pull African Americans out of poverty even after 8 years of the Obama presidency. President Trump even upgraded the Martin Luther King birthplace to a national historic park. The Dems are green with envy. Now that is helping and caring for people.

Bouvier and Tyer are a big part of the problem. Trump is the one doing a great job. Progressives drove a Super Walmart out of the area. Now they are praying that the Berkshire Mall goes under. There will soon be no place to shop in Berkshire County for lower and middle income people except for the Walmart we do have which Progressives also hate. Will Target even stay in the Mall if every store around it begins to close? Progressives have no solution to any problems except for destroying what little we do have here in the Berkshires and it’s not much.

What is the end game for Progressives? They get rid of everything they don’t like here in Berkshire County, but create nothing to take it’s place. They are destroying the quality of life in this area. Are they trying to return us to the days when everybody lived on farms and made all their own products? That was a tough way of life. Sorry, but it’s not the way most people want to live. We want the convenience of stores for clothing and a variety of stores. We women must demand the return of a variety of retail stores to this area. Soon no retail stores will want to come here because it will be such a ghost town. What stores do remain will charge outrageous prices because they will have no competition. Nobody is addressing these issues. Instead local politicians are worried about garbage cans and pot.

Melissa Mazzeo and fellow Progressives convinced Walmart not to build a Super Walmart here. They offered nothing but discouragement to those in charge of the project.

I just visited Super Walmart in North Adams recently. Awesome store. Found so many interesting foods. I love their bakery.

Little Dickey Durban is the only one who said Trump called Haiti a shithole. He is a known liar! Where did all of the money go fro Clinton foundation and Red Cross it sure didn’t go to the Haitian people! I’m sick of the African American label……how about just Americans. The Dow has gained 31% in Trumps first year……the best year since the Great Depression!!!!! President Trumps polices are working Bigly!
