As we discussed in “Conflation and False Societies”, Conflation occurs when the identities of two or more individuals, concepts, or places, sharing some characteristics of one another, seem to be a single identity. The differences appear to become lost.
Chris Rock almost spoke about this in the monologue he wrote for the 88th Academy Awards [Oscars] Show.
Here’s what he said:
Here’s the thing.. People are all individuals. If you believe someone’s going to do something because they look a certain way, you’re a ******* idiot.
If you believe people are mentally similar because they share physical characteristics, you’re a ******* idiot.
If you believe there’s a set of people that makes policy for a bunch of people they have no military control over, you’re a ******* idiot.
However….. If you just so happen to be an idiot and you make decisions based on conflation then you have to go all the way.. You don’t get to pick and choose the groups that you’re similar to or dissimilar to.
If you believe in the concept “We are all the same because ______” then you have to include whether or not you’re employed.
“The People Who Are Employed” and “The People Who Are Not Employed” are just as valid groups as any other if you subscribe to the theory of Conflation.
So what Chris wanted to know is why people who don’t have a ******* horse in this race are giving their opinions about what people who are actually involved should do.
Get Yourself A Corner Store
Mind your own business.
If you have any.
If you want to say “We” should boycott The Oscars, then you need to know who is and is not included in “We”.
If I sell hot dogs in Central Park and you don’t, I don’t really give a flying **** what you think about selling hot dogs in Central Park.
If I wasn’t invited to screw Rihanna, I’m not going to give my opinion about whether or not I think I should screw Rihanna.
Does that make sense? o_O
If I’m not a criminal, I’m not going to complain when a criminal gets thrown in jail because that person doesn’t qualify as “We”.
If you complain about cops taking down criminals, that means you want to do it yourself, and most people aren’t interested in that. -> www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/new-yorks-darkest-secret-the-hole-is-a-mafia-graveyard-that-few-people-venture-into-10454678.html
So unless you want to put in the work yourself, you should pretty much shut the **** up when cops are properly doing their jobs.
Power To The People
Similarly, if you’re Polish and you run around calling yourself a Nazi, you might want to click through to this link and read about en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_crimes_against_the_Polish_nation, which reads:
Nazi crimes against the Polish nation claimed the lives of 2.77 million Christian Poles, and 2.7 to 2.9 million Polish Jews, according to estimates of the Polish government-affiliated Institute of National Remembrance (IPN). Historians outside Poland put the number of Jewish victims of the Holocaust in occupied Poland at 3.0 million.
The crimes were committed during the course of the 1939 invasion, as well as the subsequent occupation of Poland. The genocidal policy of the German Third Reich against the Polish nation was the epicenter of Nazi German war crimes (1939–45) and crimes against humanity.
From the start of the war against Poland, Germany intended to realize the plan of territorial expansion, put forth by the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in his book Mein Kampf, demanding the acquisition of the so-called living space (Lebensraum) in the East for massive settlement of German colonists. The object of war was to fulfill this territorial policy with the use of Nazi ideology of race. On August 22, 1939, just before the invasion of Poland, Hitler gave explicit permission to his commanders to kill “without pity or mercy, all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language.”
So since you’ve conveniently conflated yourself into a nonexistent group called “whites” and want to call yourself a Nazi, you also have to add yourself to the group called “Most Likely, A Lot Of My Relatives Were Murdered By The Nazis”.
You can’t have one affiliation without the other. Good Luck with that.
If you happen to qualify in the United States of America as the nonexistent group called “blacks” because you have en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-drop_rule one drop of “black” blood (which is insane because everyone came from Africa, but that’s a topic for another day), you need to stop conflating the extremely high percentage of “blacks” that are progressive, upstanding American citizens with the extremely low percentage of “blacks” that are P.O.S. that get paraded all over creation in a campaign to make all people of color look like dregs of humanity.
This brings us to our friend Donald J. Trump.
Being a New Yorker, I’ve heard of and about Trump *FOREVER*, and it wasn’t until recently that all this tomfoolery started.
I believe that Trump is a plant.. a mole for the Democrats, and all he’s doing is making *all* Republicans look extremely shabby in order to ensure a Hillary Clinton Presidency.
In the first Republican debate, Trump refused to pledge to support a Republican nominee other than himself. This means that if he isn’t nominated, he’s going to run as an Independent and take all of his voters with him, leaving Cruz hanging.
I already mentioned in billcammack.com/2016/02/15/scalia-may-be-the-final-nail-in-the-coffin-of-the-2016-republican-presidential-election-dreams/ why Cruz doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting elected, so that means this situation is going to come down to Trump versus Clinton (Sanders can’t possibly win because Clinton is going to get all of the Superdelegates), and Trump has alienated so many groups of voters at this point that not only will he probably get whipped up on worse than Romney did, but he’s currently jeopardizing *OTHER* lesser Republican election hopes to the degree that Mitch McConnell is already trying to prevent the Republicans from losing The Senate:
Best Laid Plans
What Trump is doing is raining on Republican soil so the worms emerge.
It’s pretty insidious and crafty, I’ll admit. 😀 haha but what he’s doing is labeling his followers as being unworthy of respect with the exact same style of campaign that has been successfully waged against people of color by consistently and incessantly highlighting the low percentage of dregs and acting like quality people of color don’t exist at all.
Why would Trump do that? 🙂 .. Because if you dehumanize the rest of the American population, it’s easier to frack their land and poison their water like Flint, Michigan: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flint_water_crisis
The Flint water crisis is a drinking water contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan, United States that started in April 2014. After Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water (which was sourced from Lake Huron as well as the Detroit River) to the Flint River (to which officials had failed to apply corrosion control treatment), its drinking water had a series of problems that culminated with lead contamination, creating a serious public health danger. The corrosive Flint River water caused lead from aging pipes to leach into the water supply, causing extremely elevated levels of the heavy metal. In Flint, between 6,000 and 12,000 children have been exposed to drinking water with high levels of lead and they may experience a range of serious health problems. The water change is also a possible cause of an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the county that has killed 10 people and affected another 77.
See the part where it says “to which officials had failed to apply corrosion control treatment”?.. That’s way easier to do to people that you’ve already labeled as sub-humans via a campaign of dehumanization.
When this whole situation is over, Trump is going to go back to his regular life and all the people he exposed are going to get the shaft.
However… Due to…. Wait for it! 😀 ……. *CONFLATION*, broke-ass people in the flyover states identify with Donald Trump like I identify with Dirk The Daring when I’m playing Dragon’s Lair.
If you’re broke, conflate yourself with the group “We don’t have any money”, which is not the group called “We are rich”.
If you’re on welfare, food stamps (is that still “a thing”?) or whatever, conflate yourself with the group “If I don’t get government assistance, I’m going to ******* die.”
I’m not talking about voting. 🙂 I don’t care who you vote for. I’m saying that if you’re on public assistance and you vote to get rid of public assistance, you’re a ******* idiot.
Ebony & Ivory
Getting back to Chris Rock, he almost spoke about Conflation but he didn’t. That wasn’t his agenda for the evening.
People wanted to talk about who’s “black” and who’s “white”.
Check this out… 😀 The only people who believe “whites” are a completely different type of person from “blacks” believe that they were created by a mad scientist named Yakub in the Caucasus mountains, but we won’t get into that. You can go Google it yourself.
This whole “white” “black” thing is a nonsensical distraction. I know people of many so-called nationalities that will break your face if they even think you have a problem with me.
I’ve personally prevented friends of mine from beating people up. Some of them I didn’t prevent. 😀
“We” is determined through life experience and recognizing who’s on your team and who isn’t.
“We” isn’t determined by the color of your skin or where your great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather used to live 200 years ago.
“We” isn’t determined by who lives in your country, your city, or even on your own block.
“We” is determined by the people that a) want to be down with you, and b) have the integrity and fortitude to stand by their decision to be down with you while you apply your own integrity and fortitude to supporting and protecting them.
If you claim you’re part of a group of people that hasn’t done a damned thing for you in the past and most likely isn’t going to do a damned thing for you in the future, you’re a ******* idiot.
A friend of mine who is MOST DEFINITELY “We” and has put quite a bit of money in my pocket by hiring me to work for him contacted me the other day to see if I was available to do a job and whether I was interested in it.
If someone suggests to me that I should boycott him, I’m going to tell that person, in not so many words, to go take a long walk on a short plank.
Mind your business. Stay out of my business. Screw Rihanna if you can.
“We” is earned, not delegated.
