Supreme Idiocy: Claiming “Quantum Supremacy” Is A Racist Concept

June 13, 2021

Leonie Mueck, Carmen Palacios-Berraquero, Divya M Persaud wrote:

“In 2012 the theoretical physicist John Preskill from the California Institute of Technology coined the term “quantum supremacy”. It was introduced to represent the ability of quantum computers to solve problems faster than conventional supercomputers. The term quickly caught on and, after years of research in the field by scientists at universities and companies, Google in October 2019 announced it had achieved the breakthrough. The result sparked optimism about the future of quantum computing, but something was missing in the debate that followed, namely the uncomfortable association of the term with “white supremacy.”

su·prem·a·cy: “the state or condition of being superior to all others in authority, power, or status.”

The white race obsessed (thus racist) authors instead propose to use “Quantum Advantage“. This is a mistake as far as physics is concerned: the Quantum is not just “advantageous”. It is a misunderstanding of physics to think so. Quantum Physics is not just advantageous relative to Classical mechanics, it thoroughly EXTINGUISHES it. Quantum Physics is the final solution of the problem of localization in classical mechanics. The joke is on us, the hilarious woman below, Divya Persaud “the third”, a doctoral student, claims a supremacy she does not have in science, because she obviously does not understand Quantum Physics:

Divya M. Persaud

Divya M. Persaud is a planetary scientist, writer, and composer. She is obviously NOT a physicist specializing in the foundation of physics. She is not afraid to leverage her brown skin by claiming Quantum Supremacy has to do with the white race. Reciprocated racism is still racism…

Refuting Quantum Supremacy on purely semantic grounds, because one does not like the notion of “supreme”, and call it racist is supremely stupid, indeed.

And idiotic, because those condemning “supremacy” do so by alleging their own supremacy. I recognize just one race: that of imbeciles.Tends to be hereditary too. It’s culturally, and epigenetically inherited.

I got some taste of this when some “moderators” complained  to Facebook that I was full of “Hate” because I reported (as an anti-Nazi) some well-known Nazi ideology. I got suspended for 30 days (!) as a result… Untill, several pages of complaints on my part later, Facebook recognized that reported Nazi ideology was not reason enough for suspension…

Superior and inferior simply mean one is in the presence of an ordered set, in the mathematical meaning of the term. Such sets are all over, and even bacteria recognize them as useful, when they swim up a food gradient.

But the supremos of muddled, dark thinking don’t recognize any order which they do not themselves rule…

The correctors of semantics want to achieve their own supremacy, through intellectual fascism, as the Nazis and Soviets wanted to do. Please read the excellent:

“Quantum Physics” is not just advantageous. It is true, and classical physics is not. In some situations, say Quantum Entanglement, Quantum Physics CANNOT be replicated by classical effects: this is the essence of the Einstein-Podolski-Rosen (“EPR”) effect and the the John Bell theorem. And it has been experimentally demonstrated in thousands of experiments. Nor can the Casimir Effect, or the Bohm-Aharonov effects be duplicated by classical mechanics. There, in those various effects, which all involve forms of mysterious local-time flaunting nonlocality, Quantum Physics rule supreme.

In nonlocal matters, Quantum Physics rule not just supremely, but absolutely. Let’s then introduce the concept of QUANTUN ABSOLUTISM! (This way the silly ones will call me a monarchist!)

It is supremely fascist, idiotic and ignorant to try to cancel the purely physical concept of “Quantum Supremacy”, but I expect no less of those so inferior that they need to leverage their skin color to gain advantage in society.

P/S: John Preskill, professor of theoretical physics at the California Institute of Technology who coined “Quantum Supremacy”, proposed it to describe when a quantum computer performs a task that a classical computer never could. Preskill rejected the term ‘quantum advantage’: the word ‘advantage’ implies that a computer with quantum supremacy would have only an edge over a classical computer while the word ‘supremacy’ better conveys complete ascendancy over any classical computer. As I said, it’s not just ascendency, but also Quantum Computation which can’t exist classically.

Race Theory Is Racist

March 10, 2021

The mass mind manipulating New York Times wrote an article on “Ethnic Studies Follies”. I replied a shortened version of the following, which was of course blocked… don’t worry someday it will come out as a great revelation of the New York Times… People, and institutions, who are unjust become profitable, only when they turn their injustice to thievery. The NYT stole many of my ideas before and will do it some more, a good thing:

It is very simple: Race theorists are racist. It doesn’t matter if it is called “Critical Race Theory”, or if it is Nazi Race Theory, race theory is racism. Race theorists are closer in mentality with American racists of the Nineteenth Century than with the Western European tradition, started by the Romans of being “race” blind. Racism is pretty much a US invention, invented to justify slavery: white Americans were not really enslaving human beings, but a lesser sort.

In many countries, throughout history, there has been huge, very deadly tribal strife. Africa is an obvious example, and this is why slavery was so developed there… and so were mass human sacrifices, such as the Grand Customs games of Dahomey, where 10,000 were killed every year… until it was found more profitable to sell prisoners to  trans-Atlantic slave traders. I was brought up in West Africa. The first thing I was told was to never comment on the ethnicity or skin color of anybody (countries doing this sort of things end like Rwanda did).   

WHITE LIVES MATTER was the essence of Nazism, duplicating American racism: Much of Nazism as mood and solution, final, was invented in the USA… At least, so the Nazis believed. The Nazis, in their complete idiocy, thought they could do to the Slavs, Jews, Gypsies, and other races they did not esteem, what the English speaking North Americans had done to the Native Americans. Even the “Trail of Tears” extermination trick was explicitly copied in 1945… The Nazis had overlooked that the Russians, French and British are among the fiercest warring “races” humanity ever knew. Those three “races” were no Native Americans, but used to destroy the fiercest as a supreme ideal. Even more stupid, the Nazis did not realize they offered to the Americans the opportunity of they, the Nazis, playing the role of the new Natives to destroy, occupy and digest…

I joined, by choice, a “multiracial” family. I hate racism, my family has been a victim of it many times. The way out of American obsession with race is to teach American history, as it happened. 1609 was when America was settled by rapacious English investors who had purchased Indentured Servants on which they had the right of life and death. They were determined to exterminate all Natives militarily. In 1619 a handful of African slaves were accepted as payment. Slavery made tobacco profitable. 

Non Hispanic whites are only 38% of California. Their holier-than-thou Racist Theory pursues racism covertly by teaching public schools badly.

P/S: the irony in all this is that I have been extremely critical, for decades of Race Theory. But there is a huge gap between that and sanctifying the concept of race (some race theorists will probably claim in the future that CRT does not do this)…

Let me give extensive extracts of the NYT article. Reading them, you would think they approve of what I said… But you know what? They very well may, BUT they are scared of their own fanaticized readership. This is the same problem all over: all ideas are classified in a Manichean way, white or black, no nuance, no dimensions.

California’s Ethnic Studies Follies

A proposed curriculum magnifies differences, encourages tribal loyalties and advances ideological group think. March 9, 2021

The first time California’s Department of Education published a draft of an ethnic studies “model curriculum” for high school students, in 2019, it managed the neat trick of omitting anti-Semitism while committing it. More than a million Jews live in California. They are also among the state’s leading victims of hate crimes.

Yet in a lengthy draft otherwise rich with references to various forms of bigotry, there was no mention of bigotry toward Jews. There was, however, an endorsement of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement, which essentially calls for the elimination of the Jewish state…

The draft outraged many Jews. And they were joined by Armenian, Assyrian, Hellenic, Hindu and Korean civic groups in a statement urging the California Department of Education to “completely redraft the curriculum.” In its original form, they said, the document was “replete with mischaracterizations and omissions of major California ethnoreligious groups.”

… Yet as the Board of Education is set to vote on the new curriculum this month, it is likelier than before to enthrone ethnic studies, an older relative to critical race theory, into the largest public school system in the United States. This is a big deal in America’s ongoing culture wars. And it’s a bad deal for California’s students, at least for those whose school districts decide to make the curriculum their own.

What is “ethnic studies”? Contrary to first impressions, it is not multiculturalism. It is not a way of exploring, much less celebrating, America’s pluralistic society. It is an assault on it. “A multiculturalist framework that views our people through a colonialist lens is what literally led to the need for ethnic studies,” Sharif Zakout of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center told a state Education Department panel last year.

Ethnic studies is less an academic discipline than it is the recruiting arm of a radical ideological movement masquerading as mainstream pedagogy. From the opening pages of the model curriculum, students are expected not just to “challenge racist, bigoted, discriminatory, imperialist/colonial beliefs,” but to “critique empire-building in history” and “connect ourselves to past and contemporary social movements that struggle for social justice.”

It would be fine, too, if students were exposed to critical race theory the way they might be exposed to Marxist philosophy or some other ideology — as a subject to be examined, not a lens through which to do the examining. The former is education. The latter is indoctrination. The ethnic studies curriculum conceals the difference.

… Irish-Americans have faced a long history of discrimination in the U.S. … But the word “Irish” hardly appears anywhere in the model curriculum, and nowhere in its sample lessons. Russians, Italians, Poles and others rate only the briefest mentions. 

Perhaps this is because all of them, like most Jews, have a new identity, known in the jargon of ethnic studies as “conditional whiteness,” which simultaneously erases their past and racializes their present. Leave aside the ignorance this fosters regarding the long history of differences, struggles and achievements by various European ethnic groups in America. It’s also the mirror image of longstanding prejudices regarding “Asians” or “Hispanics” as ethnically undifferentiated masses of mainly identical people.

… To treat “whiteness” — conditional or otherwise — not as an accident of pigmentation but as an ethnicity unto itself is what the [notorious racists] of the world have always wanted.

It shouldn’t be like this. Public education is supposed to create a sense of common citizenship while cultivating the habits of independent thinking. This is a curriculum that magnifies differences, encourages tribal loyalties and advances ideological groupthink.

Black Lies Matter.

March 3, 2021

Niger means black in Latin. Somehow, misspelled, that was made into an ultimate insult in the USA… So Black matters, because it’s so insulting? Oh, black is not insulting, just insulting when spoken in Latin, the root language of English, and slightly misspelled.
Then people who are not niger at all, but with blonde hair and green eyes, plus white skin, as one of my friends, a lawyer, somehow also get called niger, including by themselves, because they have some African ancestry (as we all have).

That weird irrationality, that obsession with African origins, is called the “one drop (of “blood”) rule”. It is then not just racism but deeply delirious sectarism. One should say hatred, because deliberate, wilful alienation, pushed too far, is akin to hatred. Now you may ask, what is the point of sectarism? Divide et impera.
All this niger-not-niger obsession creates conflicts (be it only inside oneself with reason and observation)…. And also distractions of the unsolvable type: one cannot stop being racist while race obsessed. Especially when this has arisen to the level of a mass delusion.

In the end, people, in the USA, learn to use reason irrationally and purely subjectively, and thus become slightly psycho and easily manipulated with superficial triggers.
In particular, being “race” (something that does not exist except in racist countries) obsessed, We The People of the USA forget, and have no neurological, emotional and cognitive space to be class obsessed. Thus American plutocracy is free to keep on exponentiating… while the attention of pseudo-progressives is focused on the obscure concept of origins, as long as they are niger… Or supposedly niger…

In the USA, people see the one on the left, Meghan Markle, as “black”. And the one on the right, with the red hair, as “white”. However, their albedos are similar. Can one trust people who see black where there is white? Can one trust people that demented and racist?

I was brought up in Africa. Am I ashamed? No. I am proud because of my life there, my African consciousness, my African culture. Plus, I know a continent most people do not (and especially not Americans). But most of all, on this particular subject, I come with the wisdom that one should never evoke the color of the skin, or the origins. That, in the parts of Africa which know peace, is crucial, and viewed as the basis of civilization.

Skin color discrimination, especially when imagined from variegated, partial, distant origins, is as furiously primitive and retarded as it gets.

P/S: In a generalization of the racist obsession with “black”, some US pseudo-thinkers have suggested to stop using the adjective “black”.
In Senegal, where part of the population is black like charcoal, black paintings are ubiquitous, and extremely beautiful.

Now when one “sees red” with anger, “turn white” with fear, “green” with envy, “blue” from choking, “blush pink” with embarrassment, are we going to call all these dark thoughts, and proscribe their expressions? Puritanism not dead yet?

Lying Accusations Of Racism Are Themselves Racist

August 30, 2020

A bit of perspective. We are living in times similar to what happened when the global plutocrats opposed frantically those who had seen the need for drastic reforms in Rome. The possibility of as nefarious an evolution of the public debate is entirely possible. As there is one world civilization now, the consequences would be way worse. Collaborators of the American-born plutocracy brought us the Nazis and Auschwitz. They promise to bring way worse immediately ahead.

Calling people names is part of the entire degeneracy. A Trump supporter native to Portland Oregon, got shot to death in Portland, 8/29/20. The New York Times calls him “far right”. There is evidence to the contrary, from the founder of group “Patriot Prayer”… who had condemned in public discourse “White Supremacists”. But anybody disaggreeing with the plutocratically paid intellectual fascists at the New York Times is, by definition of the New York Times “far right”. Especially if all you want is a job, or cheaper drugs, or just a doctor. 

Senator Rand Paul was attacked by a mob which knew who he was. He called them “idiots” because they were asking him to say the name of the one who was victim of a “no-knock raid”. She was killed in return fire by the police in such a raid. Senator Paul introduced a bill to ban such raids (which are authorized in most countries, including France). Such mobs are obviously paid. They are no “idiots”, they are thugs.

One more frantic article in the New York Times about Trump’s racism, a well-known fact according to the NYT: How the G.O.P. Stretched Hard to Defend Trump on Race. Yet, not one concrete example of Trump racism. Instead the articles was full of passages proving Trump was NOT a racist, such as:

Was Trump an enemy of the White Race from way back? Here he is, associating with his friend Black Life matters

“Many on the other side love to incite division by claiming that President Trump is a racist,” Ben Carson, the housing secretary and the only African-American in the cabinet, said at the convention on Thursday night, shortly before Mr. Trump delivered his acceptance speech. “They could not be more wrong.”

Herschel Walker, a former football star and longtime friend of the president’s, said he was offended that anyone might hold that negative view of Mr. Trump. “I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist,” 

However, not one word on the friendship between Trump and Michael Jackson. I sent a comment. It was, of course, censored by the NYT fascists. Next and even better, the article was swiftly removed from the electronic NYT front page (it should have stayed there 24 hours, but was withdrawn within 3 hours, within minutes of me sending my comment; yes, I spy on the vicious propagandists).

Here is my comment censored by the Times:

Racial justice is, first, a question of power. Words have little power, but work does. Once somebody works, that work can be leveraged into negotiating with powers that be. Trump, because he is favorable to the relocalization of the economy at home, was able to employ a higher percentage of blacks than were employed, for many decades. In other words, Trump augmented Black Power. Once Black Power is augmented, justice for all will follow more readily.

The claims that Trump is a racist are strident, and generally, self-referential. Trump is racist, Trump critics say, because it is well-known that Trump is a racist, we said it before, they opine, and the proof is “code words”, indistinct screams overheard, and the like. All this is as absurd as calling “anti-immigrant” Trump because he had four beloved children from marrying two immigrant women. 

Trump had a long, intense and enthusiastic friendship with Michael Jackson, going on vacation with him and letting his children play with Michael, as Trump’s son pointed out. That was at a time when Trump had already run against the ultra conservative globalization addict Ronald Reagan, and Reagan’s collaborators in the self-declared “Democratic Party”. Everything indicates that Trump’s friendship with Michael Jackson was sincere. How many white moguls have as many black friends as Trump?

***

Trump on Michael Jackson:

I knew Michael Jackson very well, he was a very good friend. He lived in Trump Tower for a long period of time.” Jackson, who died in 2009, rented an apartment in Trump Tower, even honeymooning at the Manhattan building after his wedding to Elvis’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley.

He was an unbelievably talented guy,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “He lost tremendous confidence because of honestly bad, bad, bad surgery. Believe it or not when you lose your confidence in something, you can even lose your talent.” Now Anderson Cooper is paid to look infuriated claiming that whatever Trump says is “riddled with falsehoods“. Yeah, which one exactly Cooper, aside from obvious jokes?

Race is best played like a violin by hypocrites, and liars. Many of the Nazis were strident racists, enacting racial laws they were themselves coming short of. For example Hitler converted, with his pen, 35,000 Jews to Arian status…. Hitler could not demonstrate he was not a Jew by official Nazi criterions!… So maybe he was one of them, hence his generosity. 

Who were the biggest racists in history, those whom the Nazis tried to duplicate? The Pures, of course. The Pures thought they were so Pure they were the very definition of Right, in the world of Wrong. In particular they knew everything about who had the correct racial attitude. When Hitler came around, they didn’t lift a finger until it was too late to present the catastrophe they secretly, or subconsciously wished for. The Pures are now known as the Puritans. They fester at the New York Times and other plutocratically owned media because they foster divisions with crazy racist anti-racial radically demented theories.

Whereas Trump augmented Black Power by providing blacks with work, the pseudo-democrats have been busy sending jobs and added value overseas, while their sponsors pocketed the profits, before redistributing some of them to their pet politicians, many of which made fortunes by being salaried politicians all their life, serving the international economic order. We were lied to for decades, time for something else!

At this point the climate argument is sure to be rolled out. Trump used to believe in catastrophic climate change… until he understood that he would never be elected by holding this opinion. Similarly, with Obama, the other way.

Reality is of course the opposite. Obama destroyed green hydrogen and fusion hydrogen (Congress had to intervene on the latter). Obama instituted massive fracking (Biden claims he will outlaw it; he is obviously lying). Trump re-established financing research on green hydrogen and fusion hydrogen. Meanwhile California is having blackouts, because of a plethora of renewables in combination with a lack of green hydrogen… 

Oh, let me try to enlighten the genuine idiots out there (by contrast with the paid thugs). Those who lie about who the racists are, and what racism is, are the same who lied, and lie, about fusion, green hydrogen, and fracking. Huge lying is a science, like any other science; experts in the art will infect public life. Under Obama, inequality grew to higher heights than ever before, and monopoly power was increased by deliberate decisions, presented as the exact opposite of what they truly were (such as the American Invent Act).

Lying is a drug in those who practice it, and in those who listen to it. And that’s why both the practitioners and their audience will hate whoever tells the truth… Because, deep down inside, human beings love truth better, and feel remorse for embracing its opposite. Thus they want to destroy who reveals their embrace of falsehood. This is why SS officers were so keen to assassinate little Jewish children who entrusted them.

Hatred Against Trump About Immigration Is Counterfactual And Essence of Racism

August 26, 2020

It is racist to hate individuals from flimsy and apparently counterfactual justifications. This is true, even if the individual is a magistrate, or the president. I am an immigrant myself, but of the scrupulously legal type. There is evidence that Trump loves immigrants: he married and had beloved children with them. What Trump dislikes, as I do, is the sort of squalor found in parts of some “sanctuary cities”, for example Berkeley, California. 

Trump Immigration Ceremony, White House, August 25, 2020. It is racist to hate individuals from flimsy and apparently counterfactual justifications. A case in point is the PC mob hating the guy who married two immigrants and had four beloved children with them…. because, supposedly, according to the PC mob, he hates immigrants! The failure of PC logic is itself telling and frightening: who is the PC mob going to hate next?

While the Politically Correct, similar to Nancy Pelosi in her nine mansions, lives the high life on the hills, standards of living and health have sunk lower than anywhere in the world, a few miles away, among broken needles, excrements and filth… to the point ecologically unique natural lakes and lagoons are getting polluted. Systematically racist police policies keep the squalor away from the mansions: that distanciation between the PC high life and squalor for illegal immigrants and the underclass, is not “defunded”. For now. Should that fail, the truly rich can always move to Aspen, Jackson Hole, the many private islands they own in Hawaii or British Columbia, etc… As an immigrant, I was always looked down upon by the PC crowd, in a systematically racist way, so I appreciate a president who just doesn’t talk the talk, but marries the immigrants. 

A French Socialist Prime Minister once said:”France cannot welcome all of the world’s misery!” Indeed. And there are two good reasons for this: to preserve France (one of the world’s few high immigration country, like the USA)… but also to preserve the countries the immigrants come from. Indeed immigration should not be viewed as a crucial way to solve the problems of dysfunctional countries, or used as a way to exploit those countries, by stealing their best, most educated and brightest: those problems in those countries have to be fixed inside, otherwise only the best and brightest flee, preventing the resolution of the problems those countries suffer. Real progressives understand all of this.

Stop the hatred.

The preceding in black was sent and published by the New York Times. However, the global plutocratic propaganda media then realized its tragic mistake, and REMOVED MY COMMENT. They lie about saying comments are removed only if not civil. See the P/S.

Hatred is too easy, and resolves nothing.

Because the paradox is this: by hating Trump counterfactually, media such as the New York Times promote hatred as the great filter of cognition. 

For example the NYT trumpeted several times in the same article that “Trump built 300 miles of wall”. They never mention, although they know it very well, that most of the existing wall with Mexico was built well before the Trump administration (even Mexico is for it, for a number of reasons). And in some places the wall is multiple, hundreds of meters wide! And so on. The most scandalous anti-immigrant policies (such as DACA; or the immigration justice system, with no appeals and judges with extravagant powers) were in place well before Trump. Trump just advertises a reality Bush and Obama kept discreet. That’s no necessarily bad, as knowing there is a problem, and what it is, must precede solving the problem.

Promoting hatred as the ultimate filter of cognition is what true racists do.

P/S: The most sedate parts of the mini-essay above were send and published as a comment to the article of the New York Times linked above. many readers approved of it, so they realized their mistake, and removed the comment, replacing it by:

Back to All Comments.

The comment you are looking for is currently unavailable.

[NYT is the “newspaper of record” in the USA. It’s the reference. I also used to consider it one of the best media in the world. That was before the Iraq invasion, which it supported, and I stridently condemned, for all the right reasons. After that the NYT blocked me from commenting for a decade and a half until the publisher passed the job to his son. Now they censor may be 50% of my comments. But it is the first time they publish one, and then un-publish it.

Plutocracy, Not Racocracy

July 15, 2020

Yes, there is not a thing such as “racocracy”. “Race” is such a ridiculous concept, it was never recognized that a “race” could grab power, and race away with the concept. The Greeks knew of “oligarchy” (rule of the few), plutocracy, tyranny (rule of one), etc… But not racocracy. The Greco-Roman empire was ruled, at some point, by Arabs, Africans…

Hispanic conquistadores, full of defects as they were, were not racists. Indeed Cortez greatly won his war against the Aztecs and also the one he waged against the (Spanish) governor of Cuba, because of “La Malinche”.  La Malinche, a top Aztec aristocrat sold into slavery by her own mother, learned many languages, including Mayan. La Malinche was married to one of Cortez’s top lieutenant, and also bore a son from Cortez himself, who got legitimized, ennobled (and seemed to have been Cortez’s prefered child). Later Charles Quint stopped the conquest of the Americas, because of the genocides it had caused.

It seems likely that Cortez would have failed in his conquest, without La Malinche. Both the Aztecs and the Spaniards were fascinated by her, and all sought advice from her. She was central to Cortez’s ability to muster a gigantic Native army to use against the Aztecs.

Racism is pretty much an invention of the North American English plutocracy, to justify lethally exploitative plutocracy (making money from tobacco). Its notorious “One Drop Rule” is (implicitly) perpetuated by the ideology of Black Lives Matter. Truth? LOW LIVES SHOULD MATTER TOO!

Truth is more important than perceived injustice. Indeed, if perceived injustice is a lie, it’s not injustice. The Nazis famously used as main electoral platform, the injustices they perceived in several matters, including oppression they felt from Jews, Slavs and French. It was mostly imaginary, and 5% of the world population got killed as a result. Much of the present movement about “systemic racism” is barking up the wrong tree. It is a self-defeating movement, as it is all too willing to accuse We The People of racism.

This rage against a racism the importance of which is exaggerated, hid the main problem, which is plutocracy. Plutocracy, controlling the media, has sent too many of the best jobs overseas, thrived from the for-profit healthcare system, the unequal educational system, the lending-to-the-wealthy economy, the exclusive real estate, the police-protecting-the wealthy, the justice-for-the-wealthy, and the overall intrinsic violence of guns and drug availability.

I am not saying this lightly, I have been the victim of racism light for decades. However, I am not so selfish and blind to put my own little condition above massive injustices as found in education, health, housing, driven by greed which is the main force of this society.

Appreciating what is really going on is necessary to progress out of the present swamp. Thus, attacks against efforts at establishing truth reveals that those inhabited by such rage are actually truly working against progress.

The last part of the essay was a comment the NYT let me publish (!). The main article was about Steven Pinker …. someone I have harshly criticized. However, critics want him “cancelled”… and this is not acceptable. Moreover, as Pinker points out, this creates a climate of terror against non PC thinking… Which is never alright, because the truth needs to physically exercise, like we all need to. Without error to debate, it won’t have a punching ball…

Is Plutocratic Violence Hiding Behind Racism?

May 31, 2020

So three police officers sit on a man for nine minutes. He dies. This is interpreted as, first of all, a problem with racism. Ex-officer Chauvin is white, but the officer watching nervously the smothering, is Asian. 

This is a hint that racism may not be the main problem. Racism is just an assumption which is rolled out as a motivation all the time, by manichean self-described “liberals” (they are supposed to be pure, like the puritan of old). Such a traditional assumption, that everything has to do with evil, obvious racism is so traditional, precisely because of racism. 

Federal Security Guard killed by deliberate automatic gunfire at the Oakland federal Court House, May 30, 2020. His colleague was grievously wounded. Dave Patrick Underwood was a Bay Area native from Pinole. The US Department of Justice determined the assassination was “Domestic Terrorism”

Assuming other people are racist, is metaracism. This is compounded by holier than thou attitude, namely, I am so good, I can tell you you are bad, even if I don’t know you, because, you see, I know you, based on the color of your skin. This sounds as an attitude is straight out of a comedy, but it’s not, it kills. It’s the same attitude which enables a white woman in finance to threaten a law abiding citizen (when she is not), by telling the police he is threatening her life, when all he is doing is asking her to abide by the law.

The most effective adaptation of racism over time,DiAngelo claims, “is the idea that racism is conscious bias held by mean people.This “good/bad binary,” positing a world of evil racists and compassionate non-racists, is itself a racist construct, eliding systemic injustice and imbuing racism with such shattering moral meaning that white people, especially progressives, cannot bear to face their collusion in it. (Pause on that, white reader. You may have subconsciously developed your strong negative feelings about racism in order to escape having to help dismantle it.) 

What DiAngelo is saying is the penultimate step before what I am saying, which goes much further. Racism from the police is not as much the problem as outright violence by the police and justice system to buttress the established order.

Police, in the USA is very well treated as far as salary and total compensation is concerned. Here is San Francisco, for basic police officers: 

Salary $89,856 – $135,096/year

A Police Officer works 40 hours per week on different shifts and overtime may be required. San Francisco offers excellent benefits and the current starting salary is $89,856 per year. After seven years of service a Police Officer may earn up to $135,096 per year. You will receive comprehensive training, at your full starting salary.

After age 58, an officer can retire on 90% of last salary.

The police chief of San Francisco is a very black African-American, by the way. In the same city, Mayor Breed, who is also “African-American” earns a base salary of more than $338,000…

Thus the servants of the establishment are well paid… So well paid that, like the Bidens, Obamas and Clintons, they do little more than pay lip service to justice. Biden was actually the author of extremely de facto racist laws in the 1990s. But such is the control of the establishment through perverse media that older “blacks” are persuaded of the opposite… 

So there is racism, but as Di Angelo said, it’s camouflaged, hidden as its opposite. Very few US families, outside of multiracial areas, and even then, are genuinely multiracial…  

Both the killer and the victim worked as “bouncers” in the same nightclub. The owner said that Chauvin, the killer, had been violent in the past, and that she told him she will not tolerate it anymore. A violent occupation, fitting well in a violent society. Racism is enabled by violence… which takes many aspects, one of them consisting in having to pay for basic rights, be it habeas corpus, or health care, or the right to an education. 

Thus racism may only be a fig leaf hiding the plutocratic phenomenon. There is a precedent: Rome. Rome had many emperors who were not Italian. A dynasty was even from Africa. An emperor was an Arab (Philip the Arab). Rome was not racist, but declined and died from plutocratism gone rabid.

Evil Power (Pluto Kratia) is more subtle than goodness, this makes it invisible to the vast mass of the gullible, and how it rules. Obsessing about racism is a shiny object which enables to forget what is worse about the order of things, and thus core to said source of most evil.

Divide et imperare: divide and rule, the Romans used to say. Divide with racism, rule with plutocracy. What could go wrong? A thousands infernos, this is what could go wrong…

Can Youth Handle Logic More Than Three Words Long?

April 22, 2019

Some US friends on the Internet regretted Notre Dame didn’t burn to the ground. Seduced by hatred, all too many nowadays loudly claim to prefer ashes to civilization. Are they now applauding the hundreds assassinated in Sri Lanka by anti-Christian, anti-tourist terrorists? (The 2019 Easter Sunday attacks there are now above 800 casualties, including 300 dead!)

A great source of gleeful anger among those who love to hate, was Donald Trump who boldly went where no US bigot is supposed to go: I offered the help of our great experts on renovation and construction as I did in my conversation yesterday with President Emmanuel Macron of France.”

BBC “science” journalist Erin Biba, known for accusing others to insult exactly as she does, with a following I can only dream of, reacted by saying: “Notre Dame has already received… an offer of help from the U.S government but it’s only just now — years late — that Flint is getting the necessary funding. Our priorities are fucked.”

What’s “fucked” is her bimbo logic: water experts and cathedral experts are not the same, they don’t exist in the same space, they don’t make a zero sum game. But don’t worry: Erin Biba started at “Wired Magazine”, and was told that no science nor understanding of scientific topics was needed: only “excitement” was needed. Truly, excitement has replaced logic. (Hyena laughter may help…)

An even more deplorable reaction from a nephew of mine (I have problems with more than one nephew; in common, forms of violence):

It’s nice to see our country’s priorities still lie with only helping the whites.

East end of Notre Dame burning. Heaven and Hell sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble.

One approving comment to the racist assertion prior consisted in a so-called “GIF” a micro movie showing somebody saying: “No, No, Bad!” to Trump. Bad because Trump was sending all this money to Notre Dame, allegedly (except he didn’t). The skin color declaration parroted the racism of a Pluto media called “The Root” [1] which opined that: White People Don’t Live in Flint or Puerto Rico, So President Sends Aid to France.”

This is not what Trump implied, or did. As White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders put it, the U.S. will offer “assistance in the rehabilitation of this irreplaceable symbol of Western civilization.

On the same day, word came in that the city of Flint, Michigan, was receiving a remaining $77.7 million in federal funding to assist in that community now almost five-year-long battle to again have clean water flowing through its taps. So what about bimbo Biba’ smartassology? [2] It’s not the same experts, not the same budget. Experts in building restoration have to keep exerting their trade. One can’t put them along a river and suddenly they purify water. Expertise has to be kept alive, thus, experts have to be kept busy.

***

Another commenter on my site, Cory Francis, a tough ex-Marine, and author, suggested the “cathedral should have burned because of all the children molested there”. That is not cogent: as a maximally public monument for 856 years, Notre Dame was no place for molestation, quite the opposite.

What about the allegations of racism? Does Trump prefers Notre Dame because France is full of “whites”? Instead Trump said he loved Notre Dame because, as the hundreds of millions who have visited the cathedral, he was stunned by its beauty and the inspiration it shared.

France is officially not made of “whites”. Indeed, to have “whites” in France, one would have to identify those “whites”… That can’t be done in France. It’s explicitly against French law to categorize people according to origins, skin color, ethnicity, religion.

It’s possible to categorize, and thus, discriminate, among people according to their origin, in the USA. Because the USA is an officially racist country, where people are asked to flaunt their race, all too often, and declare it in all sorts of official documents. Whereas in France the protection against stigmatization by origins is as old as Carolingian law… five centuries older than Notre Dame [3]. The non official existence of “races” in France, and of religious characterization enabled to save most Jews in France. Nearly all French-born Jews and most refugee Jews; by contrast, the Netherlands, where religious characterization was entrusted to the US technology monopoly IBM:

https://www.annefrank.org/en/anne-frank/go-in-depth/netherlands-greatest-number-jewish-victims-western-europe/

France is the original melting pot, the USA is a pale imitation which still has a lot to learn from the original. It is difficult for young US citizens not to think racially, opposing the “whites” and the (presumably) “colored”. They can’t break out of it, they use their very racism to criticize the (alleged) racism of Trump. Let me repeat this explicitly: who distinguishes the “whites” from others is a racist. Trump has not done this, to my knowledge, so is less of a racist.

***

So what is Trump proposing for Notre Dame? France has the greatest number of restauration workers in the world. However, independent opinions are important. Flying a few US experts to Paris for second opinion will not hurt. Just the opposite. Would it help only the French? Oh, no. US experts will profit from working on this gigantic, primordial project. And, looking forward, there could be some day millions of homes to repair, from a massive quake, or nuclear strikes.

US experts in cathedral restoration got active in 2011, when an earthquake damaged the Washington National Cathedral. The work is still going on. Such experts in building restoration, don’t repair electric grids on hurricane damaged islands, like Puerto Rico . It’s a different job. [4]   

However, those with Trump Derangement Syndrome do not understand, or do not want to understand, what “expertise” means. All they want is to exhibit their hatred for Trump: it helps the careers of the youth,as plutocrats know that those with TDS aspire to be sheep [5].

Fundamental questions to all of civilization: where do you come from? And why? From the jungles of Amazonia or the Congo? Do you come from the Shariah? Or do you come from struggling for the honor of the human spirit? The latter, obviously. And that was done on Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, not in the steppes of Central Asia…however valuable the latter are. The holy alliance between secular quest for iconoclastic knowledge and the soaring of the human spirit deified and feminized, this is what we honor in Notre Dame.

And the racism, the skin color, Notre Dame never saw. So why does today’s youth sees it so much everywhere?

It requires more than three word logic to find out.

Meanwhile, the architect in charge of Notre Dame from 2000 to 2013 is formal: “That type of wood would not have burned so easily, if the fire had been accidental.” [6] I was personally struck by the fact the fire progressed quickly, in the exact direction opposed to the strong wind. I can’t envision which sort of weird aerodynamics could have brought such an effect.

But, once again, this is more than three word logic which bring to the logical conclusion.

[1] The Root was founded by Graham, a Pluto who used to publish the Washington Post and is a “lead” (whatever that means) director of Facebook (since 2009). It calls itself “Afro”, like in Africa, but “Afro-American” has little to do with Africa, but rather the opposite, I can tell you, as an African.

***

[2]The concept of “smartasslogy” introduced above is central to the Internet civilization as it is. Logic has been replaced by smartassology, the incapacity of thinking beyond the sort of mentality characterizing rattlesnakes.  

***

[3] There was occasional discrimination against the Jews; however, the one under Saint Louis, was not acted upon. The worst holocaust was against the Cathars, as Notre Dame was going up. The aim was the capture of the County of Toulouse, de facto a quasi republic, wealthy and very large… by King Philippe Auguste, the first one to call himself king of France (instead of king of the Franks). Prior to that, he defeated an all-Europe coalition in 1204 CE at Bouvines.  Killing 5 million Cathars set on fire the entire Christian Greco-Roman empire or civilization, from France to the Orient.

***

[4] Force 5 hurricane Maria killed nearly 3,000 people in Puerto Rico.

***

[5] Employers check social media. And the apparently genuinely anti-Trump youth know this. So, actually, they are applying for jobs, while chanting against Trump. If those officers of the Pluto system find a high degree of Trump Derangement Syndrome in an applicant, the belief that all US evil comes from the satanic messiah, Trump His Name, potential employers recognize in that this particular youth is someone who claims to have understood nothing about how the plutocratic system works. In other words, an obedient servant of plutocracy. Thus that youth will make an excellent servant, or henchman… just like Obama.

***

[6] The architect-engineer, who was in charge of Notre Dame during 13 years, from 2000 until 2013 is astounded by the fire: how so, and how could it have gone so fast? He calls this “incomprehensible… very old oak, and one gets the impression it burned like matchsticks” The architect says that this sort of wood would never have burned so easily if the fire was accidental.

All the security was remade and the fire alarm system, and the electric installation at a higher level than state of the art, in 2010, and 2 employees were in charge of this, 24/7. The architect is adamant no fire could start, as the oak was so old and tough. and especially not propagate that fast. No fire during the 13 years he was at the helm.
Mr. Mouton says that an accidental fire was not possible:

Why & How Trevor Noah Reeks Of Racism. Please Understand This To Lessen Racism

July 19, 2018

Trevor Noah, an immigrant “humorist” in the US with a huge audience, made gorilla gestures while saying: ““Africa won the World Cup. I get it, they have to say it’s the French team. But look at those guys. You don’t get that tan by hanging out in the south of France, my friends.

No, I am not your friend. Although about as much from Africa as you are. I actually detest the sort of facile spirit, bordering idiocy, you display. And I don’t befriend those who judge according to the color of the skin, the racist. Noah judges people by the color of their skin, and he boasts and beams about it. Noah is viewed as “black” in the US, although many “white” people coming out of their winter caves, can acquire just as much a tan as him by hanging around the south of France, that’s a bit more than the tan of the French football superstar, Kylian Mbappé Lottin, né le 20 décembre 1998 à Paris.

When asked, the players said, and insisted, again and again, that they owed their career to the “Republic”. Not, not once, to Islam or Africa (as much US media insisted, as if Black Africans were all Muslim… And Islam there has not much in common with Mecca, but for the ability to get there…) 

Dictator-President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela zeroed in on Les Bleus, following the Trevor Noah lead, lying just as outrageously: “the French team seems like the African team. In reality Africa won, the African immigrants who arrived in France.

Actually the star French players are all French born. They are NOT immigrants. Paul Labile Pogba, né le 15 mars 1993 à Lagny-sur-Marne en Seine-et-Marne. N’Golo Kanté, né le 29 mars 1991 à Paris, etc. (My own nickname selected by me while living in West Africa was Golo, a word with its own meaning…) The fact that the French team is from the (full) Republic, and not from “Africa”, where Republics as Republican as present-day France don’t exist, is geopolitically crucial… And is what impacts the quality of the football…

A protesting French Ambassador Araud wrote to Trevor Noah the players of the National Football team are French citizens—born (except for 2 out of 23), educated, and taught to play soccer in France. “They are proud of their country: France,” Araud wrote. “The rich and various backgrounds of these players is a reflection of France’s diversity.

That last line fascinated Noah, who retorted: “Now, I’m not trying to be an asshole, but I think it’s more a reflection of France’s colonialism. Because it’s not like it’s just like random players; they all have something in common. Like all of those players, if you trace their lineage you’re like, ‘How did you guys become French? How did your family start speaking French? Oh, O.K.’”

You don’t have to try to be an asshole, you got it. South Africa you are from was really colonized recently by the Afrikaners (17 C), the English (around 1900), and the Zulus (14 C), and the Xhosas (another Bantu group which arrived a bit earlier, and was pushed by the Ama Zulu, the People of the Sky). In general, the Bantus colonized South Africa in the last millennium, over the dead bodies of the original Khoisan population. Now, that’s real colonization, US style: go somewhere, kill the natives, replace them… The Bantus colonized, the US colonized… There are presently no French “colons” in Africa (there were basically never any; most French were administrators, hospital personnel, etc.)

Fighting racism is, first, about identifying what racism is. That’s start with educating racists. Noah, reading the letter above made still another racist asshole joke, showing he really doesn’t get it.

This unintelligent wealthy Noah person doesn’t realize that the ancestors of these French players did as Noah himself did. Having a career in racist, violent South Africa didn’t appeal to him, so he moved to the USA.

Noah was born of a tragedy, from a German Swiss who abandoned him and a local Xhosa, Patricia. So he himself is the fruit of some sort of colonialism (of his dad over his mom, imagine the trauma!) Thus he wants us all to be either colons, or victims of colonialism. Moreover, Noah’s existence was illegal in the apartheid regime. His mother was condemned to prison, and to pay fines. Later she remarried, then married again, and her second ex-husband shot her twice, in the leg and the head, the bullet came out of her nostril, before his gun jammed.   

Trevor Noah left South Africa after his godfather (the shooter) threatened to kill him too (at the time, he had not been punished by “justice”: the Republic is not that strong in South Africa).

Why is that relevant? Trevor Noah is the fruit of extreme, baffling violence. Horrendous racism. He expects us all to partake in his abomination, his personal hell. He tries to trivialize it, by claiming everybody does it, and that everybody white was, is as bad as his father was to his mom. He naturally assumes violence is natural, everybody does it. And the French national Football team is also the fruit of violence, racism, and the exploitative colonialism his own father indulged in, relative to his mother Patricia, Trevor Noah, insists.

By also insisting that the magnificent French football team, Les Bleus, is the product of colonialism, Noah actually is flattering colonialism: look, colonialism produced a magnificent football team! Ditto for violence: colonialism, the way it’s imagined (and the way it didn’t happen in French Black Africa) is violent. So Noah is saying: look at this magnificent violence (of colonialism) which produced this magnificent football team!

Gérard Araud, French Ambassador to the USA, on his Twitter account: “He didn’t refer to a double identity. He said ‘they are African. They couldn’t get this suntan in the south of France’.  i.e They can’t be French because they are black. The argument of the white supremacist… Which means you can’t be French if you are black. Exactly the argument of the far-right. In French terms, it is horrifying.

Later Trevor Noah changed his music, in a disingenuous fashion. Personally I claim the elements of African culture I was exposed to, helped me enormously in my thinking, and can’t be disentangled from my identity (but Africa is huge, and West Africa I am from has nothing to do with extremely conflicted South Africa…) But the fact remains: the parents and ancestors of the French players US racists call “African” chose the Republic over “Africa”, because the Republic is more civilized.

Why is such a prominent advocate of racism, violence and colonialism as Trevor Noah so prominent? And presenting racism, violence, colonialism under such favorable guises? Precisely because he does this so well! To impart the same high regard for racism and violence in the general population, so make it easier to divide and exploit.

Noah now claims he was just satirical, why worry? No, he is someone with a huge audience taken seriously by the would-be “left”, the forces of would-be progress in the USA. The “Daily Show” is serious propaganda for the Politically Correct. Trevor Noah is, clearly, much more racist than Marine Le Pen, who was never caught saying something as bad. Even her notoriously somewhat racist father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, did not ever say something as bad (to my knowledge).

In guise of excusing himself, Trevor Noah doubled on his insults on France, insisting France had the problem, no him. A perfect message for the racist US: let’s give the man a few more millions.

This, France, Europe, look carefully, this is the true USA, where the light comes through the crack: the USA, a place where racism is so much taken for granted, that it is viewed as funny. Whereas, in truth, it’s deeply pathetic.

France Was Multiethnic, Before She Came To Be:

“France”, Gaul, was spectacularly multiethnic, with Germans, Celts, Basques, Aquitanians, Greeks, more than a millennium before a confederation called “the Franks”, that is “the free”, self-formed by uniting a number of German tribes. The Franks united under a law called “Lex Salica” written Roman lawyers, in Latin. France is the definition of multiethnicity.

Greek colons from the City-State of Rhodes installed themselves in the south of France. The Rhodians were followed by Phoceans, who had fled the tyranny of Persia invading present-day “Turkey”. The Phoceans founded Marseilles, 2,638 years ago (precision, precision… An historical date confirmed by archaeology!)

Multi Ethnicity is what came to be known as Francia. When the Franks arrived, chased by a rising (North) sea (!), they were few, so they had to be very nice to the millions of Gallo-Romans, if they wanted to lead them to a better world… And the greatest success of the Franks was to mitigate and recreate Christianism, the Catholic Orthodox, into something compatible with a strong, yet open state. The first result was the destruction of the Goths (in collaboration with a joint attack of Constantinople), the second a powerful extension of the empire in Germany, where the Romans had not been, the third the imposition of secular teaching to the Pope, the fourth the rules of many queens, and the fifth the outlawing of slavery (circa 655 CE).

People like Trevor Noah, Chomsky, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, are found, under close inspection, to be fake friends of real progress (notice I didn’t mention for critique Bernie Sanders or Jerry Brown, who are real progressives). Similarly to Hillary Clinton voting to invade Iraq, because that was the facile thing to do at the time. Thinking is hard. Progress is hard too, because it requires, among other things, thinking.

France is a spirit of the conquest of truth by progress, and the French soccer team has it. They are as French as French can be, more French even than average French, often, because their parents or ancestors chose this, not because they were colons, or dragged around by colons, or enslaved by masters, but because they were smart and progressive. They immigrated to the Republic. They chose the Republic.

Patrice Ayme

Note: Antoine Griezmann (blonde, white skin, two blue eyes) was judged “best player of the final” by the FIFA (easy: Antoine scored twice in the final). His best friend is Paul Pogba (a Parisian black as charcoal, with the gift of gab…) Griezmann was a super star playing at the Real Madrid, for years. But now the other superstars are PP and Mbappe… Griezmann started tired as the Real Madrid was winning the European Cup…

 

Don’t Encourage “Politically Correct” Apartheid in the USA: it’s Racism!

June 6, 2018

Abstract: There is no US left, but there is a pseudo-left… whose job is to reinforce the plutocracy, mostly by diverting discourse and reflection towards completely ineffective pursuits. One of them is an obsession with the word “nigger”… Instead of obsessing about real reforms.

Racism is racism. Doesn’t matter the color of the skin of the racist.

***

A white student asks author Ta-Nehisi Coates if it’s “cool” to rap along to songs with the n-word in it – and Ta-Nehisi Coates responds brilliantly (say the Politically Correct). Bestselling author Ta-Nehisi Coates answers an audience question about the power and ownership of words at the Family Action Network event with Evanston Township High School while on tour for his newest book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER: An American Tragedy. (No, you were not. Obama may have had a Kenyan as a father, but, like many Kenyan servants of the white masters in racist English Kenya, he did obsequiously only what the white masters told him to do. The title of his book is pure disinformation serving the plutocracy!

(Unwittingly racist) Coates’ argument is that “every word doesn’t belong to everyone”. For example, he says, the USA belongs to the whites, and the blacks own, in exchange, Coates insists on that, the “n-word” (the word which means “black” in Latin, with an added g for emphasis). Give me the country, I will allow you one word! Fair? Coates says it’s fair, and he laughs!

Self-declared victim/businessman of racism makes the apology of racism? All blacks are his family, it’s not mine? Racists can’t fight racism with racism, and they know it, and they like it, as many turned racism itself into a business, business being the business of America…

Personally, as an undisputable victim of (anti-intellectual, and other) racism, I can’t approve of the apology of racism by Coates. The solution to racism is not more racism, but less. And cutting the crap about which type of people people are, and what peculiar rights they have, according to types.. Tribalization: “blacks” go with “blacks”, “whites” go with “whites”, Indians go with Indians, Muslims go with Muslims, Turks go with Turks, Hispanics go with Hispanics, Trump haters go with Trump haters, “Republicans” go with “Republicans”, etc. is just, literally, the apology of apartheid. Now, OK, I am myself partial on this subject, having no “racial” group to go to which view me as family and reciprocally. Maybe that’s why I always hated apartheid, and why racists enjoy, precisely, those race families they decided they have… The way to end racism against “blacks” in the US, is to require EFFECTIVE implementation of equal rights. No more, no less. So prison reform, sentence reform, justice reform, housing reform, educational reform should be resolved first. Focusing only on the usage of words by some versus others instead of focusing on the usage of LAWS is part of the mechanisms which prevent to even reflect at the needed reforms of the entire society.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/22/politics/jack-johnson-who-is/index.html

Trump just pardoned Jack Johnson, the black hyper famous world heavyweight boxing champ, condemned to prison, did time, and who had to flee the USA, because of his “crime against nature” (Federal prosecutor said at the time) of crossing state lines with his white girlfriend. Why did we have to wait for Trump? Because to many on the self declared “left” not so secretly promote apartheid? Getting Obama to pardon blacks was like extracting all his teeth… Although he had himself used the very substance they were condemned for, he readily admitted (even in his books!)

Racism is racism. Doesn’t matter the color of the skin of the racist. And it doesn’t matter the religion either: the Jews said, all too much, that they were the “Elected People“. The Nazis (some of them of dubious ancestry, by their own standards, for example Hitler, or notoriously in love with Jews, like Goebbels) begged to differ: THEY hijacked the Jewish supremacy ideology, and insisted that they were the “Elected People”! Much of the Jewish ideology of election (by “God”) and holocaust, as divinely found in the Bible, was then turned against the Jews themselves… Specifics can be evil, but embracing evil methods is even worse, because they can be then applied in many other circumstances, and they stay evil…
