Whitey must always be the bad guy

Well, well, well.  I guess Keira Drake’s (revised) novel will finally released this month.  I’ve been trying to get the “racist” copy of the novel but to no avail.  However, the Washington Post has published a little bit of the original, and compared it with the revised version in their report on the drama involving The Continent, Keira Drake’s debut novel.

First of all, let me state that I really cannot stand the Washington Post’s page design.  The quotes are blurred or obscured and are revealed as I scroll, then are obscured again as they scroll out of view.  Stupid.  The article, “How Keira Drake rewrote The Continent is quite revealing.  I would have posted an archive.is link, but the Washington Post are staffed full of assholes.  Rest assured, I made a PDF copy of the article and I sent it to my Kindle, AND I made an ePub copy of it thanks to an extension called dotepub, so I have several copies now, in case they change something or delete it or – and this is far likelier – put it behind a paywall.  Hey, you never know.

I’ve written about this before, and I am not sure if I actually predicted that this would happen, but I know I thought to myself, “they’re gonna make the bad guys white.”  And they did.

So it was never really about racism, it was about how brown people are always victims and never the victimizers.  If the antagonists being brown skinned is racist, how is changing them to be white people any less racist?  The notion that making a group of people the antagonists is somehow racist is utterly absurd anyway.

The author not only made the bad guys white and the good tribe brown, but also made the main character mixed race so as to avoid the white savior trope or the dark-skinned aggressor trope.

Okay, so let me get this straight – we’re not allowed to stereotype “marginalized” people.  But we are allowed to stereotype white people.  From where I sit, that’s still fucking racist.  Let me repeat that in bold:  that’s still fucking racist.

The author and the publishers fail by their own standards.  They just rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic, but the ship is still fucking sinking.  It’s still racist by their flimsy, idiotic standards.

Oh, wait, that’s incorrect.  They’re racist by any intelligent person’s standards.  They are absolved of their racism due to the idiotic notion that only people in “power” can be racist.  This notion that black people or whoever don’t have any “institutional power” is complete bullshit and they know it.

This sorry situation only makes me that much more determined to self-publish my novel.  I’m having a hell of a time editing it because as of right now, it’s well over 300,000 words.  I cringe every time I think about it.  I am also angry with myself because the antagonist alien race in my novel are tall white humanoids.  However, I’m going to leave it like that, and when you read the novel, you’ll know why.  I promise, you’ll love it, especially given the Weinstein affair.

I still have her book preordered, although I could have sworn it said it would be released next year, not this year.  It might have been a glitch on GoodReads or something, because I remember looking at it and seeing the 2019 release date and going, “damn, they pushed it forward a third time?  Why not just cancel it and be done with it?”

Let this be a lesson for everyone – the SJWs will never be satisfied.  Never.  There’s no point in pleasing them – you’re only wasting your time.

EDIT:  Unf, there’s MORE!  The Vulture has republished an article (archive.is) originally published in the New York Magazine and it also has more information.  Also, more utter bullcrap so it really deserves its own post.  I might fisk it.  Oh, and some Native Americans (archive.is) are still not happy with the revised version.  As I said, they will never, ever be satisfied.

A note about charity

Leftists love bitching about Christian hypocrisy.  One of their favorite things to whine about is how we Christians supposedly hate the poor, and refuse to help the poor, even though the Bible commands us to care for the poor, etc.

I am going to start off with 2 Thessalonians 3:10:

IMG_70E809FBF267-1

I love the YouVersion Bible app.  I’ve been using it a while, and I can make nice graphics like the one above.  Anyway, I think this verse is pretty straightforward.  Lazy people who refuse to work will suffer the consequences, and the consequences of that is that they do not eat.  When we conservatives complain about welfare programs and such, we’re not condemning all poor people.  Rather, we’re complaining about the kind of people that stay on welfare, make bad decisions that necessitate their continued reliance on welfare, and their refusal to do anything to get off of welfare.  A lot of people do not pay income tax – however, not all people who pay income tax are billionaires or even millionaires.  Those people making, say, under $500,000 a year are not one-percent high rollers bathing in champagne and driving expensive cars, etc.  They often have plenty of expenses of their own, and here’s the important part:  they work.  They often work pretty hard.  They’re not Mark Zuckerberg/Warren Buffet/Bill Gates/George Soros rich.  Not even Hollywood actor rich.  Their taxes are probably high too, and it’s not just income tax I’m talking about.

I think they have the right to complain.  Furthermore, many leftists seem to think that these people don’t contribute to charity or perform charitable acts.  Many of them do.  In fact, the American people are among the most generous on earth with the amount of money each individual contributes to charity every year (and yes, I’ll give them credit even if they use such contributions as a tax write-off).

I believe that personal, private charity is best.  Leftists don’t, because they think that welfare should be perpetual and eternal.  Yes, they have actually complained that private charity doesn’t last long enough.  That’s the point, though.  It’s not supposed to last your whole life.  It’s supposed to help you get back on your feet.  Welfare, Section 8 housing, WIC, Food Stamps, Medicaid – all of that is designed to “help” a person for life, basically.  Maybe not outright, but many of the people using it find a way to get those benefits for life (and don’t get me started on the illegals committing identity theft and fraud to gain access to those benefits).

The Bible is indeed pretty tough on the “rich” but I believe that when it says “rich” it really means greedy assholes that don’t care about anyone but themselves and their material wealth.  I found Proverbs 29:7 pretty interesting:

The left believes that we are the wicked that do not care about the poor.  This is flat out false.  We DO care about the poor, but we have different ideas as to what would best help the poor.  Government programs, in my opinion, do not do much to help the poor.  The programs the left loves so much enable people and are impersonal.

It’s better to serve in a soup kitchen, serving meals (or even making them) for the homeless than to vote Democrat and go, “well, this person will keep the Food Stamps program coming.”  Does the leftist in question spend any additional time thinking about the nameless and faceless people his vote supposedly helps?  No, but the person serving in the soup kitchen can look at the people they’re helping.  They can greet the person as they serve them a meal, ask them how they’re doing, and ask if there’s anything else they can do for that person.  This is what those Jesus Freaks they despise so much do all the time.

For most leftists, it’s pretty obvious that all they do is vote Democrat, and that’s where their “charity” ends.  The only other charitable groups they donate to or spend time with are leftist pet projects, like gay rights, trans rights, abortion rights, racist nonsense like Black Lives Matter and anything else that will promote the Democrat agenda.  None of those “charitable” groups have anything to do with helping anyone other than Democrats and their endless quest for power and control.

Of course, I might get whiny comments from leftists saying that they DO indeed volunteer in soup kitchens and homeless shelters and such, but so what?  They clearly didn’t give us Christians the benefit of the doubt.  Or rather, us Christian Republicans.  It’s not nice, is it, when people make sweeping generalizations of you?  Now you know how I feel.

As I said, Republicans do not hate the poor.  We don’t appreciate lazy people, and we have different ideas on helping the poor.  We expect that everyone, even the poor, take responsibility for their own lives.  That, after all, is part and parcel of freedom, which is something we dearly cherish.

Islamic Terrorism Is Real, Just So You Know

Islamic Terrorism Is Real, Just So You Know

So, according to the left, Islamic terrorism isn’t real. Or acknowledging it is Islamo-hatred or Islamophobia.

This wretched slop of shit hosted at the Daily Beast (I used an archive link, so they don’t get any revenue, and in case the piece is deleted) accuses Pamela Geller of being an Islam-hating beeotch, or something, and takes great pains to inform you of her social-media darling daughters.

I had no idea she even had daughters. Yes, apparently her daughters are all very active on social media (mostly Instagram) and are pretty successful…and none of them even so much as mention their connection to Pamela Geller in passing. Her daughters avoid mentioning any association with her, and they never appear with her in pictures.

The author of that stupid post obviously wants to believe it’s because the girls are embarrassed to have Pamela Geller for a mother, and that they vehemently disagree with her politics. Then the author cites the handful of political posts the girls have made, and it’s pretty obvious that they’re at least moderately right-wing.

Interestingly enough, the author never mentions this one simple fact: Pamela Geller, regardless of how you feel about her activism, has gotten death threats for the things she’s said and done. I don’t care what you think of her politics – she does not deserve death threats, and she’s gotten plenty of them. She even wrote a book about it – it’s called Fatwa: Hunted in America and was published by Milo Yiannopolous’s Dangerous Books.

So it’s no surprise that Geller and her daughters avoid associating with each other in public. If anything, it might very well have been Geller’s idea, if only to protect her daughters from getting death threats, or god forbid being kidnapped by ISIS and tortured or killed for propaganda purposes.

I bet the bitch hag author knows this, and decided to publish the names and account handles of Geller’s daughters solely so some ISIS bastard can kidnap one of them and teach that Islam-hating Geller a lesson or two. That’s how these scumbags roll, after all.

Oh, and it gets worse. According to Fox News, they lost the online talk show they used to have. And, predictably, the scumbag leftists have been harassing them on Twitter and Instagram. You can see some of the tweets at Breitbart. Why the left gets to pull this shit and get away with it is utterly beyond me. It also makes me so fucking angry.
