The Gulag Delta

It does not require submersion in our blog canon to understand how lightly we take the solemn precepts of our Constitution. This document, so revered by Legacy Americans, has been deployed as little more than pretext for turning them into footstools. Popular expressions of their own national interests are invariably found to be in conflict with emanations perceptable only from the perch of lifetime appointment. In contrast, the yearnings of outliers, aliens, and trough feeders always find a sympathetic ear within bashful penumbras.

Perhaps no element of the Constitution has provided a more a reliable expedient than the 14th Amendment. This “Reconstruction” (of which the confederacy still patiently awaits) Amendment was passed with no Southern participation except as an allowance for resumed congressional representation. Submit to our demand and we’ll let you vote yes on it. Just like Madison intended. Those Northern boys certainly knew how to manage a gunpoint marriage. And morality always agrees with which spouse holds the pistol.

And so the 14th was ratified all nice and pseudo legal-like. That included the Equal Protection Clause which stated…

No State shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

The point of which being to ensure that blacks would be granted equal legal treatment as whites. A status none would accept for its demotion today. It’s remarkable how quickly demands for equality segue to demands for submission.

And submission is the subtext of this legal atrocity. It being nothing less than a political imprisonment in Mississippi: America’s incipient Gulag Delta.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A former University of Mississippi student who admitted helping place a noose on a statue of a civil rights activist is going to prison.

U.S. District Judge Michael P. Mills sentenced Graeme Phillip Harris on Thursday to six months in prison beginning Jan. 4, followed by 12 months’ supervised release.

Harris pleaded guilty in June to a misdemeanor charge of using a threat of force to intimidate African-American students and employees, and prosecutors agreed to drop a felony charge.

“No one should have to endure threats or intimidation because of their race or the color of their skin,” Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta said in a written statement. Gupta leads the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division.

Prosecutors say the Alpharetta, Georgia, resident and two other former students placed a noose and a former version of the Georgia state flag containing the Confederate battle emblem on the statue of James Meredith sometime before dawn on Feb. 16, 2014.

I previously wrote mockingly of the proceeding. This is a bit more serious. A young man is going to prison for draping string over a statue. Prison. There were no articulated threats. There was not even legal vandalism, as the statue was neither destroyed nor defaced. And every sculpter interviewed for the story forecasts a full recovery. There was nothing…but incarceration for unlegislated heresy. Graeme Harris finds himself a very unintentional political prisoner.

Though if mere implications found in the penumbras of lingering twine warrants imprisonment, what punishment would explicit racial defacement of public monuments produce? I presume state-sponsored electrocution wouldn’t be peremptorily excluded. Peruse the recent images below and recall the Civil Rights Division Director’s somber doctrine: “No one should have to endure threats or intimidation because of their race or the color of their skin.” Certainly not when those threats are communicated via statuary.

Obviously Ms. Gupta is now very busy indeed. Though just three questions come to mind.

How many of these crimes are under investigation by the Justice Department(sic)?
How many prison sentences are forthcoming?
How are you enjoying your Equal Protection?

Conservatives, just keep singing paeans to the constitution.

No one can hear them over the prison wall

    • Hey Porter, off topic, I was searching through your copious archives looking to see if you had commented on that Google face recognition program that labeled blacks apes. I was sure you had but I couldn’t locate it. If you have could you direct me to it? BTW you create a prodigious amount of work! Kudos and hate coins for you sir!

  1. Porter…are you sure he’s going to prison for hatethreats? According to this article, it was merely a “lack of cultural awareness and a joking personality”, and those are the un-named (to this day) student’s very own words. Surely you’ve seen this on all the same media outlets that reported the original Hate?

    Regardless, in my opinion the Warsaw Mechanism should be invoked.

  2. Meanwhile Africans, Arabs, Mexican and mystery meat of all varieties are being flooded into ALL formerly white countries, formerly white cities and formerly white neighborhoods. And no one can say no.

  3. HA!

    The other day when chatting with another Legacy American, I asked what exactly, remained for The Left to rub our faces in. And here it is.

    I assume we will have our first national explicit gay sex broadcast within the year, along with negative interest rates and a federalized reduction in the age of consent. Any other ideas?

    • You left out polygamy and of course welfare for polygamous families. The Mormon crazies will do the Muslims work for them, useful fools that they are.

    • I asked what exactly, remained for The Left to rub our faces in. And here it is.

      To ask is to accept.

      Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General 

      So many adjectives. She must be special.

  4. He pled out rather than facing felony charges. 6 months in jail versus how many years (and costs) of criminal proceedings… the young man probably made the right choice to get the feds off his back.

    Second point, he was sentenced by a federal judge. How is defacement of a state statue a federal offense?

    Disbar the prosecutor for filing frivolous suit. Disbar the judge for going along with it instead of making an indepdendent reading. Or just tar and feathers as the instapundit says.

  5. Forgive me for over-commenting, but this really is a line in the sand. I suggest a dual approach: raise money for a sophisticated federal court appeal while also physically sheltering and defending Mr. Harris while appeals are pending. They are pending, aren’t they? In any event, he needs to seek refuge in a friendly environment in the US while lawyers do their things. If the lawyers win, he’s free. If the lawyers lose, he’s still free pending a Bundy ranch situation. I can help with fundraising.

    • He pled guilty; there’s no appealing that. We’ll have to wait for all the facts to dribble out, but it sounds like the prosecutors promised no-jail, and then judge Michael P. Mills fucked him. “He was facing 1 year in prison and $100,000 fine”, and we’re supposed to think he pled guilty to save 6 months? Another kid was scheduled to plead guilty later that day, but changed his mind after seeing his friend get shanked.
      And good luck finding a “friendly” environment anywhere in the U.S. of Law and Order, where everyone bends over and sings Sod Bless America because the 55% of the Supreme Court ordered them to.

  6. Now Porter, we all know that the Gupta name is famous in American history going back to the founding of the country. Can’t we all recite with pride the signature of Rupesh Gupta on the Declaration of Independence? And of course the famous Gupta battalion that fought so bravely in the Civil War?

    Without the Guptas, Western Civilization would be just some backwards dirty hellhole. Heck, we may still even be throwing cadavers in rivers and drinking our own pee as a meditation ritual like other places.

    Gupta is synonymous with America and understanding of American culture like freedom of expression and freedom of speech. Heck, Gupta is Latin for Freedom!

  7. Malevolent noose sightings have been trending in recent years, though few seem to have attracted the attention of our Guptas in the Justice Department (sic). The only reason I can fathom why is Equal Protection.

    In Baltimore. I saw a noose with a Chinese menu in its hand.

    In Wisconsin. Walkin through the streets of Soho in the rain.

    In San Diego. He was lookin for the place called Lee Ho Fooks.

    In Michigan. Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein.

    In New York.

    You hear him howling around your kitchen door,
    You better not let him in.
    Little old lady got mutilated late last night,
    Nooses of America again!

  8. Porter. You care. You really care. That is what separates us. I admire you and disdain you in equal measure. And that is because you are no less intelligent than me and yet you continue to fight the fight. And while I admire that, I despise the futility of your effort. In a hundred years time (so brief) what do our efforts to stem the tide of history matter? I disdain you because I am arrogant and I think that you are wrong. Is my arrogance misplaced? I’m serious.

      • Considering you probably have more readers than NRO at this point, maybe he’s looking for a job writing for you here?

      • For someone who doesn’t care, there’s an awful lot of despising and disdaining going on. Indifferent troll is indifferent.

        Based alt-right troll recognizes the situation is hopeless and that nothing will change until Le Happening, and helps hasten the beginning of Le Happening with well timed rhetorical shoves.

        Also, it’s fun.

  9. I used to be opposed to illegal immigration but never made the jump to legal immigration until a few years ago. Now I see these non-white, non-black foreigners with positions of power in our country. They absolutely despise white people yet we can do nothing but tolerate them. Our own President is the son of an immigrant. We’re being ruled by people entirely alien to our way of life.
