That Word vs. America
American Thinker, by J.R. Dunn

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/8/2013 6:47:19 AM

So Tim Allen has decided to publicly defuse that most egregious of English words: the six-letter one that starts with n and ends with r. (snip)Everybody wants to see it gone, buried at the crossroads with a stake in its heart. But like a movie zombie, it always gets up and goes shambling into town once again, looking for Paula Deens to bite. Why all this effort? Because we all know that when that word is at last abolished, we will look around and see that there is no more Klan, that no one is being lynched any longer

Sorry, but people are being lynched, figuratively, every day by the MSM. But because they´re white, or Republican, it doesn´t matter. Paula Deen ring a bell, or Zimmerman?

As long as "ni**er" remains potent, blacks don´t have to try. They can resist taking on the full responsibilities of citizenship and continue badgering whites for pity and sympathy. The word is simply too useful to do without.

(Since Dunn spelled this word out in full but L.Com´s "bad word" censor won´t allow it, I had to use asterisks.)

Dunn´s take on this is an interesting one. So long as the word is "sacred" among American society, no matter how it is used, it will remain a crutch for black people and a very lucrative tool for race pimps like Sharpton and Jackson.

We should de-fang the word. People still use the word "Jew" in a derogatory way when they want to display their bigotry, but we´re not told by Jews that they are not allowed to use the word, are we? "Dirty Jew" is another term used by bigots. Oddly, the targets of that epithet rarely take to the streets and riot or ask for welfare checks.

So yes, Dunn is on to something.

Linguistics 101 should have taught you that a culture never gives up perfectly useful irreplaceable word. Probably, the problem is that essentially nobody takes Linguistics 101.

Right now I am so sick and tired of all this racial talk. When I see anything to do with the black civil rights stuff, I change the channel or turn the propaganda machine off. Same with women´s rights. We have had how many years of this nonsense? All the while the blacks and women have been accorded privileges not based on their qualifications but on make-it-up-to-them reasoning. And, for that reason, the USA is actually considering electing to potus, an incompetent, corrupt woman because of who she married. My, how far we have come!

I agree with others that Dunn is onto something. That 150 years after the end of the Civil War in which hundreds of thousands of white men died for the Black Man and 50 years after the end of Jim Crow and all institutional racism, how else can the Black Commuity explain its failures: illegitimacy, illiteracy, poverty, etc? Why it must be because racism is still alive and well by the use of the n word. Of course, the continued uses of the n word by and among blacks kind of takes the sting out of its use so all the manufactured pain when a Paula Deen uses it (accurately in my opinion).

But at the end of the day, my family emmigrated to this country in the 1890s-1900s and lived up North so I have no affiliation with slavery or Jim Crow laws and I really don´t care about their feelings anymore. I may have to work with you, sit on public transporation with you, etc but I don´t have to like or respect you especially when you continue to whine about perceived injustices.

Without the word and the concept behind it we would not have the worst and least accomplished president in history at our helm, so it does have currency and power.

Two of the biggest and best-connected lobbyists in Washington, DC are divorcing each other, and in the process they are placing on the public record the amazing wealth that can be generated by helping rent-seeking powerful interests shape the laws and regulations that separate Americans into winners and losers as the state confiscates a fifth of our GDP and regulates much of the rest. Matthew Continetti chronicles the divorce of Tony and Heather Podesta in the Free Beacon, and it is arresting reading. If the name Podesta rings a bell, that is because Tony’s kid brother John is a former White

One of the guidelines of liberal propaganda is that if you are going to lie, lie big. Global warming, Obamacare, Romney’s a heartless guy. It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Eric Holder offered an alarming new doctrine for the Republic: laws are only suggestions, and the real authority to enforce or not enforce them lies in the hands of the president and his cabinet officers.

America´s school children have had enough and they´re not going to take it anymore. Faced with the meager, unappetizing school lunches required under First Lady Michelle Obama´s nutritional program, students have taken to social media to express their outrage and disgust at what they´re forced to eat for lunch. (snip) More than a million kids nationwide have opted out of the new program - a testament to how truly awful the food being served at our schools has become. Not only that, in the Los Angles school district. it´s been reported that $100,000 worth of food is thrown away every day:

Let’s get one thing straight: the savage mob attack on a white motorist in Detroit by a dozen or more black men on Wednesday was not a “vigilante style” attack. Yet that’s what Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones are trying to call it in a joint statement meant to play down the unavoidable racial element. Says their statement: Earlier this week, a traffic accident that injured a young boy, David Harris, escalated into a vicious attack on the driver of the vehicle, Steve Utash, who had done the right thing by stopping to check on the boy.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
