Any normal person must long for peace, prosperity, and continuity of his habitat, people, and heritage. But longing isn’t making, and making is typically the only means of getting. Though to the extent one merely longs, bleeding social ruptures are one of the least longed for things.
This point is buried in the following quip.
It actually would have been far less socially destructive for the left to bribe a ****** accusation from one of its operatives. That’s not to assert destruction must always be malign. It may very well be the only action forward. After all, many roads are built on the dust of dynamite. Though destruction remains an act rational men cheer judiciously.
The destruction I’m referring to is the left’s accusation escalation from racis to rapis. I can assure you, many paths are going to be carved from this explosive. Of course everyone and their grandmother has grown weary to their marrow from the droning of dat raysis. But it’s worth acknowledging the function this invocation has played in our modern social fabric. The left requires an epithet to identify and designate its enemies or “Other.” Think of the pheromone stinging insects use to vector their group attacks. All hierarchies require recognizable flags.
The actual language could be anything, as the term itself is irrelevant. Only the intent of the signal matters. If Keith Olbermann were deciding, the signal might have been FUCK FUCK FUCK. Though that would be insulting to more cultured members of the hive mind, who cherish their nonconformity. Whatever the language, Bad Man/Not Us/Attack is the core data stream being transmitted when the racist klaxon is sounded. And that, you may be surprised to hear me opine, has been a relatively good thing.
As strictly a marker, raysis is quite precise. It simply marks. That mark may get you booted off twitter (a salve to any man’s sanity) or, much worse, booted from your job. The latter is no small thing, though it is also not a life ending thing either. Rapist is.
When rapist is used as an enemy marker in lieu of the far more benign racist pheromone, it transitions the attack from priests to prosecutors. This is a radical and destructive escalation. Of course the concept of Hate Crimes have already made that transition, and so this could be viewed as simply a predictable extrapolation. Though at least hate crimes require a valid underlying crime in most instances, with ‘hate’ taking the form of sentencing enhancements for white people.
Using rapist as an attack marker is much more insidious. Many liberal women will not even intend for the cold machinery of law enforcement to be awakened. They may simply seek coddling and validation from other hens. As I have said before, any society that grants social status for victimhood will enjoy a perpetual abundance of victims. But once the claim goes into the public sphere they are put in the uncomfortable position of retracting it or trudging forward. Many will grimly trudge forward. And if they were actually violated, I hope they do—immediately after the event.
But with the Kavanaugh Karnival, dopey feminists are reading the subtext. And that subtext is Rapist is a name for Bad Men. Bad men want you to have your babies when you get pregnant. Bad men want Mexicans to live in Mexico. Bad men want to replace the atmosphere with methane. And bad men violate women. Does it matter if a bad man actually did violate a woman? Did it matter if a bad man actually did ‘oppress’ blacks?
I will be grateful to be wrong, though society appears to be briskly trotting toward the time when men will feel relief to hear that someone merely accused them of screaming ******!
