Far-right extremists, which may include everyone who thinks $40T in debt might be a bit too much, and white supremacists, which may include any white who doesn't flagellate in racial penance on a daily basis, are noticing that Disney has embraced Modern Nazi Race Theory.
In the past year, Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma, bombarded employees with trainings on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” and “white saviors,” and launched racially segregated “affinity groups” at the company’s headquarters.
Blah blah blah. So what? It's got a half-life of, what, another year or so? Just how much flagellating can the average wokester do before the reality in front of their faces makes them throw up their hands and give up on the thing?
Yazoo City Data
Yesterday, I drove through Yazoo City, MS, the boyhood home of one of my heroes, Zig Ziglar. It was less than the inspiring event I had hoped it would be. I was too spooked to take snapshots as I passed the ruined houses, but I went on Google Street View this morning and grabbed a couple of screenshots. Here's two of them, plus a ruined industrial building plus the test scores of the local, all-black high school.
|The house seems habitable, but it's clearly abandoned. Dig the blinds. Blinds? You can't repair or replace blinds? That's got to be the easiest and cheapest home repair job in the world. Pathetic.|
|It's the same story everywhere. Everyone I saw on the street had smart phones. English is reading. Project Gutenberg offers free classics online. 90% illiteracy means you're not even trying.|
What hit me on this trip was the realization that dads do more than supply money and discipline to a family. They also fix things. It's a cliché, but it's true. Wife kitteh is as competent a woman as you're likely to meet, but tools are an alien language to her. My first wife grew up in a family that built houses on their mountain property with their bare hands. She participated and was very skilled, for a woman. Late in our marriage, I had gotten to the point in handiness that I had to finish every job she started. She was good, but not good enough to get things completed.
So what does it mean to have an 80% illegitimacy rate? It means nothing gets fixed. Everything falls to ruin. Here in the South, with aggressive, imperialist greenery all around you, it doesn't take long for deferred maintenance to lead to a wrecked house.
It's not race. It's family.
Back To Disney
The lunatics goose-stepping around Disney's offices, preaching the Gospel of der Volk, are living on borrowed time. The poor devils suffering through their propaganda sessions can adopt all the anti-racist postures they want for all it matters. While they're doing it, the ruin will continue.
Eventually, all but the dimmest of bulbs will see that it hasn't accomplished a thing.
