An Italian to White Woke Dopes: Fottiti!

By Craig J. Cantoni

Craig Cantoni is a retired business executive, author, and activist who founded and led a large community-action group in New Jersey, where he was honored as Community Service Volunteer of the Year.

 

Okay, white woke dopes, you’re going to get what you asked for. You’ve asked Americans to:

  • Engage in racial identity politics instead of inclusivity and pluralism,
  • Favor some races over others in the name of diversity,
  • Lump the hundred or so diverse racial and ethnic groups of European and Middle Eastern ancestry into a catchall group called “white,”
  • Stereotype everyone in this group as privileged and racist,
  • Illogically exclude Hispanics from this group, and
  • Embellish the achievements of your favored racial and ethnic groups while ignoring the achievements of your disfavored racial and ethnic groups.

By asking for the above, you’ve asked for blowback.  Well, here’s blowback from an Italian American—blowback that you can stick up your culo, which is already the location of your ignorant, righteous, virtue-signaling, pasty-faced head.

It’s time for Italians to strike back. After all, we Italians have put up with your prejudices for over a century without striking back. For example, we didn’t strike back when you:

  • Stereotyped all of us as anarchists during America’s individualist-anarchist movement, which culminated in the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Varzetti.
  • Treated us with suspicion and government scrutiny during the First and Second World Wars.
  • Applauded or looked away as mobs hanged twelve of us in New Orleans and one of us in St. Louis.
  • Implemented immigration restrictions against us and other Southern Europeans in the early 20th century.
  • Tried to put “papist” parochial schools out of business, an attempt that continues today.
  • Called us all kinds of ethnic slurs, including wop, dago, and greaser.
  • Accepted Life Magazine’s description of baseball great Joe DiMaggio as not being a typical Italian because he didn’t put bear grease on his hair or reek of garlic.
  • Portrayed us as gangsters, mobsters and Mafioso in hundreds of movies, most notably in the “Godfather” trilogy.

Then you went through your silly phase of “celebrating diversity,” which was a precursor to your dopey wokeness of today. The phase began with a valid point, as most causes do: that too much history had been told from a Eurocentric perspective.

But you went overboard, as you are doing now. You began celebrating certain minority groups, such as Latinos, and stopped celebrating other minority groups, such as Italians.

Here’s a personal example from years ago: An Arizona military museum had an exhibit on the Second World War, and one of the prominent displays was of Latinos who had piloted fighter planes during the war. There was not a separate display for Italian pilots or for any other racial or ethnic group. Given that my dad landed on Saipan and is buried in a Veterans cemetery, that rubbed me the wrong way.

Maybe olive skin is also thin skin, but I think not.

What was the reason for spotlighting Latinos? Condescension? Some kind of crackpot social agenda?

Instead of an exclusive display, there could’ve been an inclusive display that spotlighted all races, or better yet, didn’t mention race at all. Alternatively, by showing photos and names of all pilots regardless of race, the point could’ve been made that the war was multiracial and multiethnic, without having to be so damn condescending to Latinos.

No doubt, you woke dopes don’t realize that Italians are one of the most diverse people in the world, the result of different peoples, including Africans, tromping through the peninsula for millennia and mixing their DNA together. Italians also understand multiculturalism, having explored much of the world and traded with much of the world before “globalism” became a buzzword. You’ve heard of Marco Polo, right? How about tomatoes? You know where they’re from, right?

You want your favored races to dwell narcissistically on their own grievances and accomplishments, and even to exaggerate both. Okay, you get your wish.

At the link below is a 59-page list of accomplished Italians throughout history, without exaggeration, including painters, sculptors, musicians, singers, writers, actors, scientists, architects, philosophers, and leaders.

That’s my way of saying to woke dopes like you: Fottiti!

Men and women aren't equal, they're different.


ALTHOUGH CAMERAS CAN EASILY DECEIVE,
A PICTURE IS WORTH A LOT OF WORDS.

Men and women aren't equal, they're different.
 
It turns out men and women throw a shotput almost equally far -- men excel by just a little.
 
That's a little hard to tell from this photo -- because top competitors aren't remotely equivalent. To balance the scales and account for the fact that men and women are not equal, women get to throw a shot that weighs about half of what a man throws: 8.8 pounds vs. 16.01 pounds (55%). Look closely... ahh... yes.
 
"Fake News" is worse than what the politicians scream about. This is inherently phony, denying fundamental truth -- then arguing for equivalency that must -- by the nature of reality -- be false.
 
Putting boys on girls' sports teams, even if the boys feel like they are girls, and vice versa, is abject nonsense. Give the girl a 16 pound shot, sure, go ahead and have fun. And vice versa.
 
"The diversity delusion."
 
"Leftist derangement syndrome."
 
P.S. Men can't have babies either. Big difference.

THE WOMEN'S ISSUE THAT WON'T QUIT

 

 
Political correctness, affirmative action, tolerance, diversity, multicultural whateverness, intolerance, being "woke," all the left-wing nuttiness that is destroying The American Way is neatly summed up in this picture.
(Click the link for a mind full.)
 
You can fool yourself, and convince yourself for only so long. Women forced by men or anyone to behave this way is not liberated behavior. While feminism and olden "women's lib" remains quiet about this, it is a fraud. #MeToo can no longer say it's "over there." Michigan and Minnesota are inculcated.

One Yale Prof Gets It

The lamestream media told you:

America has the finest university system in the world (ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN).

The university system has become an indoctrination camp instilling in our children marxism, socialism, anti-American values, hatred for traditional American success and what makes this nation, capitalism and the Founding Fathers' virtues great (talk radio, FOX).

So which is it?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Professor Gelernter, a computer science professor at Yale, writing in The Wall Street Journal, advises the freshman class that they -- and their professors -- already know and agree on nearly everything important. You, as a non-Yale freshman can guess, probably with great accuracy, what they believe about his list of what’s important, and then understand why the university system poses such a risk to The American Way. http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm

President Trump
taxes
environmental policy
military spending
federal regulation
gun rights
voting rights
voting fraud
China
Brexit
immigration
religion in American culture
Ukraine
Putin
school vouchers
public-school spending
corporate average fuel economy
Supreme Court appointments
the space program
urban transportation
highways
Palestinians
Benjamin Netanyahu
the former Iran deal
affirmative action
school violence
and many other topics

His advice: Now that “you’re adults,” why not disagree just once, so you can tell your grandchildren about it.

Dennis Prager recommends a new book, Get Out Now, about how America's schools have become morally toxic, and concerned parents have an obligation to pull their impressionable young children from this dangerous environment. Many options exist, it's the duty of parents to start looking at your choices, and not co-opt your precious kids.

Michelle Malkin writes:

"I like to joke that I’m a little brown woman with a big mouth.

"And since I’m a “person of color” according to liberals, I’m supposed to use my big mouth to support radical leftist causes. But I don’t do what they expect. Instead, I’m proud to speak out as a wife, mom, entrepreneur…and unapologetic conservative.

"To the left, that makes me a traitor to my race, an instrument of white supremacy, a fascist, and who knows what else! It’s all about identity politics, you see. A dangerous new “social justice warrior” mindset is gaining strength in our gender, and sexually.

"Liberals see racism where it doesn’t exist, fabricate it when they can’t find it, and ignore it within their own ranks.

"If you’re a woman or an ethnic or racial minority, you’re expected to march with the left. If you’re a white male, you’re put down as a racist or one of the infamous “basket of deplorables.”

"If you dare to question the latest pieties, angry protestors will try to shout you down and shut you up. They’ll even use violence to get their way. All to suppress any ideas and perspectives they don’t like.

"This madness started on our college campuses, and now it’s infecting the rest of society. It’s high time you and I stood up to it, Mr. Korwin."

That's why I write the way I do, Page Nine readers. Look at my starter bit about people of color vs. colored people again. It's a brave new world.

HOW RACISM REALLY WORKS

"The left is the real source of racism, always has been."

We all know democrats are the perpetrators of the Ku Klux Klan (the KKK), and the ones who fought FOR slavery in the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln, who saw to its end, was the first Republican, and his tradition continues to this day. Now leftist progressives, a wing of the democrats, are busy tearing down any relics of that, like historic statues and road and building names all across the south, their home base. Remember this: "The one who cries 'racism' typically is the racist, hiding in the noise and confusion created."

The "People Of Color" and "Colored People" problem

They are the same thing of course, except the first name allows leftists to fool themselves into believing they are not bean-counting racists, and the second name exposes them like the naked emperors they really are.

Try this: Next time you see or hear "news" reports, pundits or friends refer to "people of color" think to yourself "colored people" and look how dramatically the entire thing changes! The racism is glaring, horrible, unvarnished. Somehow, leftists can deceive themselves -- and you -- by a simple twist of language, and flaunt their racism right in your face. "We must work to ensure fairness for people of color" (but... who is "we"?) And then, "We must work to ensure fairness for colored people."

Whoa. It's glaring, as noted -- elitist, supremacist, racist. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the vaunted NAACP, has not changed its name because it is so imbedded, and the left simply tolerates it. Try asking, "Why do you say people of color instead of colored people?" and listen quietly if you can.

Facebook Censorship Plans Announced

Congress Goes Along

Zuckerberg must be thinking, ‘You are SO over!’

The lamestream media told you:

Opinions on Mark Zuckerberg’s recent marathon inquisition before Congress are all over the map. Search it online if you haven’t already, or care. Members of Congress showed themselves to be highly ignorant, illiterate and uninformed about the Internet, Facebook, data collection on individuals -- even how online tools work. Most of their questions didn’t rise to the level of grade-school children -- and the members didn’t know it.

Chairman Grassley struggled so hard to read his own statement he is an embarrassment to Congress itself, completely hard to listen to his broken cadence and stumbling.

Zuckerberg didn’t get frazzled, or smirk, or get really hard questions, and his answers, after a few hours and certainly by the second day, were simple repetition of prepared statements, delivered from memory, showing his incredible intellectual prowess, typical of the other few oligarchs of internet machinery.

His left-wing predilection was self-evident, and problems this presents for the nation are stunning. His support for dark-money funded ignorant children in the March for our Lives media-promoted movement was revealing.

Congress has no way to contain him, or the web’s power that challenges their own, though some suggestions did arise: An “honest ads act,” fake-account removal, state-actor identification, better advertiser ID, and third-party fact checkers from the Poynter Institute, each with their own merits and disastrous side effects and downsides were proposed. Stay tuned.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Facebook censorship will cover three areas.
No one raised objections, they all fell in line with Zuckerberg’s default position:

TOPICS TO BE FACEBOOK CENSORED:
Hate Speech
Violence
Terrorism

Yes, these are broad, easily abused categories.
Good definitions of these don’t exist.
Everyone agreed on that. But it didn’t deter Congress or Facebook.
Ask Dennis Prager if decent educational material is already being wiped out,
with those excuses as excuses. It is.

"Children of color" aren't "Colored children"

Simple word play convinces racists they aren't racist


Nation's main purveyors of racism fooling everyone

The lamestream media told you:

"Fostering a lack of diversity"
"Kids in Arizona's care are mostly children of color, but those charged with treating them are overwhelmingly white. Experts have long recognized inequalities in America's child welfare system: When kids share identical circumstances except for race, black and Native American children enter foster care more often, spend more time in the system and wait longer to be adopted..." https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2017/11/12/arizonas-foster-care-boards-dont-look-like-their-communities-heres-why-matters/526586001/

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Charges of racism, and stories about diversity, affirmative action, "people of color," and all the rest of the bean-counting racism afflicting our nation come from one side only -- the Democrats, leftists, progressives, and radical proponents of so-called equality, where no one is equal, equality must be enforced, merit is not a fair gauge and individual virtue is frowned upon.

In a recent cover story on Gannett's number two paper, The Arizona Republic, a lack of colored people, called people of color, in child-welfare management, is highlighted as a problem for children in the system, who are disproportionately colored children, called children of color. The article points out that 90% of review board members in the state's largest county are white, 100% white in six other counties, and fails to mention percentages in the state's remaining five counties, for reasons that were unclear at press time. https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/arizona-investigations/2017/11/12/arizonas-foster-care-boards-dont-look-like-their-communities-heres-why-matters/526586001/

Also missing is the fact that 72% of black children are born out of wedlock, contributing to imbalances, crime, developmental problems and the child welfare mess. Why more colored people, now called people of color to distort the narrative, don't step up to help fix the mess that out-of-wedlock births create, is not discussed in the lengthy cover story. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People was not quoted in the story. There is no National Association for the Advancement of People of Color.

Chances that this article here will be called racist for using non-mass-media-approved terminology are substantial. The reply, "What do you mean when you say 'racist' and what does 'racism' mean to you' is typically met with blank stares, confusion, and a variety of answers that don't match, when there are any.

Online definitions, with common threads, do not seem to apply to the terms "colored people" and "people of color," suggesting the terms are mere propaganda and thought control related to political correctness, and not racism, e.g.:

"racism, n., the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." The makeup of professional sports teams does not count.

racism, n. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others...

NPR: The Ugly, Fascinating History of the Word "Racism": The Oxford English Dictionary's first recorded utterance of the word racism was by a man named Richard Henry Pratt in 1902... Someone is either a racist and therefore an inhuman monster, or they're an actual, complex human being, and therefore, by definition, incapable of being a racist... Merriam Webster gives the date of entry into the language as 1936.

The idea that race, ethnicity, nationality, genetics, gender or even culture and upbringing have no effect on human traits and that all people are perfectly equal doesn't appear to have a name, though it is perfectly clear that all people are not equal. This is commonly confused with the egalitarian idea that all people are justly entitled to equal treatment under the law. It's complicated. Uncomplicated people, often found gathering in the democrat's party, have a hard time with some of these concepts.

Survival of the Fittest Works!

Columbus' arrival assures natural selection

Someone would have to strengthen Indians' immune systems

The lamestream media told you:

Columbus was a white conqueror whose statue should be torn down, he brought pestilence to the indigenous peoples of North America and led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands. Anyone who reveres him is a racist hate monger.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Left-wing radical loonies have abandoned their love of evolution, natural selection, Charles Darwin and survival of the fittest. In a mad mindless rush, seeking to denigrate anything that represents the glory and achievement of white male Western culture that is the pinnacle of civilization on Earth, they are basking in the throes of an orgy of self-hatred, with the help of a sick mass media. They all need treatment. They are all in denial.  

Of course the natives died -- they were scheduled to die -- they would have died off as soon as anyone arrived from the rest of the world, because the natives had no immune defense against the germs that thrived elsewhere. That’s how the human race gets stronger. It’s got a name -- Darwinian survival of the fittest. It's natural selection.  

The good strong resistant natives survived, and passed on their genes.

That’s precisely how it’s supposed to work. Previously, left-wing peoples reveled in this sort of thing. They have so lost touch, all stemming back to their wonderful loss in the 2016 election, they can hardly think straight about anything any longer. Tear down the statute of Columbus in Columbus Circle? Do you really want to mess with New York City’s Italians? Now that really is crazy.

"People of Color" Is Racism

George Orwell Would Be Proud

People Without Color?

The lamestream media told you:

People of color this, people of color that, the Oscars have more people of color than ever before...

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The left wing of America doesn't want you to notice what's going on behind the curtain.

Political correctness, which is actually cultural marxism, has substituted "people of color" for "colored people" to make their blatant racism acceptable. It is the left, and only the left, which dominates the "news" media, that uses colored people (now people of color) constantly in news stories. If they used "colored people" their racism would be on naked display. They have hoodwinked themselves. They have you going along.

This bean counting racism is unacceptable to non-racist conservatives, but it is demanded of the overwhelmingly racist marxist left, that sees everything as race-based warfare. It is textbook communism on a platter -- pit the races against each other. It is part of an effort to destroy The American Way. http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm

If you substitute "colored people" every time you read "people of color" as you follow the so-called "news" the racism is glaring. The grammatical difference is tiny. The substantive difference is enormous. Left-wing racists insist on singling out people based on race, and name calling. Conservatives, centrists and moderates (almost the same thing) never do, because they shy away from racism and calling people colored ("of color"). It's just not right. It's left.

"Law Abiding" Dying as PC Glossary Grows

The Politically Corrected Glossary
http://www.gunlaws.com/politicallycorrect.htm

 

"law abiding" is becoming virtually impossible.

 

Political Correctness is really Cultural Marxism,
a perverse way to control thought and move America
toward a socialist, Orwellian future.


Political correctness has leaked its way into our schools, media, culture and thoughts -- sometimes unconsciously, sometimes deliberately, by people seeking to undermine our freedom and undo the advances we the people have achieved, replacing liberty with tyrannical control over the populace.

Unable to defeat us with military might, our enemies are having great success undermining our values using mere language. As George Orwell so keenly observed, control the language and you control thought. Control thought and you control everything else. It's time to re-read the book 1984, or read it for the first time if you haven't already.

As many of you know, I have now stopped using the phrase "pro gun," because this makes our opposition "anti gun." And since they think guns are bad, the proper position to take against bad guns would be anti gun -- and they win that on the words.

We are actually pro rights, casting them correctly as anti rights, putting us automatically on the moral high ground. Read the Politically Corrected Glossary to get the whole picture and fix your own verbiage.

We have reached a point where so many laws are immoral or infringements, or can no longer be legitimately obeyed by anyone dedicated to constitutional governance, the phrase "law-abiding" has become arcane and a relic. "Law-abiding gun owners" are reduced to shivering vestiges of their former selves, dependent on government travel papers, expiration dates, qualification tests, violations based on ammunition types and amounts, infringements so vast and immane it defies the average person's ability to even know them all, let alone obey them and not step into violation.

In place of the olden standard "law-abiding gun owners" we now find ourselves in need of better and more accurate phrases such as:

good gun owners
honest gun owners
decent gun owners
honorable gun owners
righteous gun owners
innocent gun owners

These fit beautifully in all the spots where you might use that other now inaccurate phrase. It leaves no telltale blemish in its place, and reads smoothly. I have a series of articles coming soon on other recent distortions on our language, propaganda really, especially "gunman," which is a vile and offensive sexist affront, and "shooter," which demeans and assaults anyone who goes to a range, and is used by media to avoid the correct word, murderer. The "news" media loves the distorted propaganda phrases that assault our rights. Don't help them.
