Crazy Talk


I won't claim that The Village Voice is middle-road media, but I will say this article is a nice combination of profane and probable. Funny, too, if you don't mind scatological hyperbole. And, notably, not particularly easily debunked.
About 12:01 on the afternoon of January 20, 2009, the white American mind began to unravel..
... A devastated economy. Two wars, neither being fought with clear goals. Housing markets that resembled war zones. A health system crippled with costs. An auto industry cratering.

But surely, in a time of crisis, the country could pull together to fix this mess, right?

Answering itself -- because it's undeniable -- in the negative, a theory is proposed:

White people have simply gone sheer fucking insane.

Let's look at some examples to nail down that theory.

It goes on to make a pretty good case. On a personal level, I've thought as much myself. It's sort of the whole point.

But, hey, politics is hardball, right? We've had rat-fuckers like Breitbart and O'Keefe around forever (the founding fathers were certainly not immune to dirty tricks in their day). What's different this time, however, is just how easily the lies and distortions of the rat-fuckers are being soaked up by the damaged crania of this country's drooling white masses. What sort of senility is softening up the frontal lobes of America's palefaces that they can't see through the black-hatred of a wanker like Breitbart?

It ends with a certain amusing irony which I don't suppose will be appreciated by all:

It is true, as Brownstein says, that the graying boomers will hate to pay for the education, health, and welfare of the coming browns. They'll be stingy about it. They'll scream about it. But they'll have no choice but to do it. After all, who but the hordes of young browns will be around to work when the grays retire? To pay taxes? To fund their Medicare and Social Security? And how will they earn enough money to finance boomers in their retirement if they're not well educated and healthy?

To do this dance effectively, the white American mind is going to have to focus and prioritize. Maybe, just maybe, it might be required to act with a little ever-loving sanity every now and again.
