About This Music

This is so weird https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adiemus_(song)

You’ve heard this song. You might think it was done by Enya.

It was concocted by Karl Jenkins, originally for Delta Airlines. But there’s more to the story, of course. Here’s an interesting read about the process of creating this music: An Aural History of Adiemus

This makes the case that whether consciously or subconsciously, the music was built to carry a subtle message of white supremacy. Now this is not saying it was done as a malicious, racist message. But it does speak to how insidious and hard to perceive a racist framing of things can be.

Hey at least they didn’t ruin a real classic, the way United did

Entrenched

Dug-in. Defensive. That is what Pumpkin’s core of support is, and there are a few basic reasons why. I think the top reason is, he makes their racism seem a little more OK. Even though they know it’s evil.

So nothing he does, nothing he says, nothing he is, will shift that very much.

The only solution will be a sound thumping at the polls. That’s right, I am leaning to the side that says not to impeach. First, Mike Pence will do even more damage per week than Pumpkin does.

And the last thing this racist band of Americans should be given is, a martyr.

Emergency!

It’s an emergency!  But… not really.
Imagine a 911 caller who needs to report a home invasion.  But they start their conversation with the operator talking about a business meeting they had that week (China).  And a friend (U.K.) who’s going through a tough divorce.  And a difficult relationship they have (N. Korea) but they are making progress! 

And oh yeah, finally after twenty minutes, there’s this dude (Mexicans) breaking into my house, maybe come do something about that.

That was the scene in the Rose Garden Friday. This is possibly a good parody of that because it’s WAYYY more coherent.

And then… and then… he went off to play golf.

Yeah. Emergency.

What Will They Do?

My worry about the seemingly inevitable fall of Pumpkin is twofold.  One, how violently will his cult followers react?

Two, how passive will the police be in trying to quell that violence?  Especially where it’s directed against black or brown people.  We could see Tulsa writ large.

National Piss Off A Nazi Day is here! 

Today is a day to vote against

Vote against hate.
Vote against fear.
Vote against fascism.
Vote against tax boondoggles for billionaires
Vote against losing your health care.
Vote against racists and rapists on the Supreme Court
Vote against racists and rapists being called “very fine people”
Vote against the Kremlin’s Five-Year Plan for the USA
Vote against “white nationalism” i.e., racism.
Vote against brown children being stolen from their parents at our borders. 
Vote against American citizens being stripped of citizenship just for being brown
Vote against black people being executed by police just for being. 

But I repeat myself once more: Vote against the Rethuglicans.

Vote against the Rethuglican running in every race on your ballot.  And that means, vote for someone who has a chance of beating them.  Sorry, Greens.  Not this year.  This year, in virtually every race, the only candidate with a shot at beating the Rethuglican is a Dem. 

SO: f*ing vote for your f*ing Dem! 

Vote for your Dems even if they don’t tick your every box or give you all the good feelz.  Save that crap for when the other choice is not a fascist dictatorship.  

So, yeah.  Vote for “not a fascist dictatorship“.  VOTE BLUE!
