Sexist, Racist, Ageist Obama Doesn’t A Reality Make

December 21, 2019

Obama just said that white old men were the problem, worldwide. That’s sexist, ageist, and racist, Moreover, it is completely stupid. But no surprise from the fracking, droning, do nothing, but decrease US lifespan, US president…

Obama, revered by the pseudo-left addicted to hating Trump, because hatred feels so good, and because Obama gave them cheap oil, for their big SUVs and dispensious, energy wasting mansions… and Obama gave them a fig leaf, as he was brown, 24/7, and spoke splendidly, sounding like yours truly, of things he did the exact opposite of…

On the Internet, at best, sarcasm has replaced reality: who needs facts when you got the power of nasty under the guise of fake courtesy?

Rachel Laudenslager Hunt retorted sarcastically: “You’re right. The people who have been the predominant power brokers of the world for the last 2 centuries are the real problem. Now let’s see.. who were they….?”

Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour, may be best known as King Louis XV’s Chief Mistress. But she was also a highly educated tastemaker, a patron of the arts, and an artist in her own right. As Louis XV’s Prime Minister, she stood on its head all of French diplomacy, reverting alliances, launching the Seven Year World War, which lost North America for France, turned Prussia into a juggernaut, leading to Nazism, also brought the creation of the USA, and was a catastrophe for France and Europe… A splendid woman of influence, indeed, but not for the best.

Thanks for the comment. That gives me the occasion to make an important point tribal minds have recently decided to ignore. 

 

Women should have equal access to all. But that doesn’t mean there will be an automatic improvement of the character of the human race. Right, who should be the most famous politician, or ruler ever, was a woman. Amusingly few know her name, and for what she should be famous. So much for those who make noise without knowing.

Several women reached maximal authority in Rome: Agrippina, Galla Placidia, and Theodora. Galla Placidia, officially a ruling Augusta of Rome, was a very positive influence, in very troubled times. Agrippina the Younger ruled Rome for a few years, assassin extraordinaire and Augusta, after assassinating, or executing many, including probably Claudius, but was herself executed on the second attempt, on the order of her son. Theodora (500-548 CE) repressed the one serious attempt at a revolution against the Roman dictatorship, all by herself. 

Ironically enough, in the Eighteenth century, the two persons who exerted the most catastrophic influence on the leading superpower of the time were both women: Madame de Pompadour, and Marie Antoinette. Whereas indeed it’s Saint Queen Bathilde who outlawed slavery in 655 CE. Slavery was not outlawed thanks to sarcasm, which doesn’t a reality make. 

By pointing out that exterior appearances which have nothing to do with the life of ideas and correct emotions, such as age, gender and skin color are the dominant parameter, Obama is implicitly deflecting away blame from himself: after all, he has been brown 24/7 since birth, so he is white as the driven snow in the world of morality.

Obama couldn’t possibly have bombed out, on his personal order, entire weddings, killing up to 200 people in countries the USA was not even at war with: see, he is brown, 24/7. Obama, being brown 24/7 is an ecologist, and couldn’t possibly have organized the greatest fracking of shale rocks ever, making even the pale Trump paler than usual with enraged jealousy… Obama, brown 24/7 could not have engineered the greatest transfer of riches to the wealthiest, ever, making inequality in the USA, greater than ever.

Obama, being brown, thus pure, couldn’t have organized the greatest transfer of riches to the healthcare industry, which even The Economist just called, a “racket”. Just like somebody as brown as that could not have presided over the greatest decrease of US life expectancy ever… even including the two world wars…

Ah, in case you wonder, my closest family friends are as brown as Obama, and the latter is a personal friend. Qui aime bien, chatie bien

But the truth is neither young, nor old, it does not have color, nor gender. Only racists, ageists and sexists have those.

Marie Antoinette led France into war against her own country, Austria (according to the devious plot of engaging France in a war she couldn’t win… this ended with her execution for the highest crime of highest treason imaginable: launching a war to lose it…).

Madame de Pompadour, once the king’s overpowering mistress, became his Prime Minister, for seven years, bringing a reversal of alliances and a world war (which lasted seven years). The North America portion of that war is known in the USA as the “French and Indian War”. Thanks partly to Pompadour, Britain propped up racist Prussia as an attack dog against Austria and France, leading, ultimately, to the disappearance of Poland, and a racist Germany in the 19th century which treated Slavs and Jews as subhumans. Thus, out of Pompadour’s folly, would ultimately grow Nazism.

Meanwhile, having killed her husband, among other self promoting activities, empress Catherine the Great swallowed Ukraine, the Baltics, most of Poland…

Human beings are according to the ideas, not according to some outward parameters. Unfortunately, not only Hitler believed the latter… 

Sarcasm doesn’t a reality make. At best, it makes for fake communications.

Obama had spoken well a few weeks ago, of the ways of not thinking revered by lazy idiots, he implied. Those are called the “woke” culture (culture in the sense of monkeys having “culture”), and the “cancel” culture (in practice lynch mobs).

So I hope Obama can read this and use his neurons more creatively… Sarcasm, woke and cancel are all fake ways of thinking. Beyond fake news, they make up fake minds. Exactly what we do not need if we want to stop the Sixth Mass Extinction, the one caused by that crashing comet known as humanity.

Nota Bene: Speaking at a private plutocratic event on leadership in Singapore, a financial conspiracy center, Mr Obama, financial conspirator extraordinaire, said while in office he had mused what a world run by women would look like.

“Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us [men].

“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes… If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,”
