New Racial Codeword: "Thug"
— Ace

There's actually a major Social Justice Warrior controversy over whether we can call thugs "thugs," or whether that's -- wait for it -- racist.

Mayor Space-to-Destroy has apologized for calling looters and arsonists "thugs," but Obama hasn't. Josh Earnest says he stands by that word.

Black Twitter called Obama an "Uncle Tom n*****r ass cracker" for using it.

I wouldn't give Obama any kudos for "standing behind" the word thug. He stands behind everything he says and does, because he's a malignant narcissist who becomes petulant and angry when someone suggests fault in him.

So, he's not standing behind "thug" out of course, but rather because it's his habit. And standing behind everything you do or say is not courage: In fact, it's cowardice. It takes bravery to examine oneself for flaws and to confess them.

Obama's right on this point, but, of course: Accidentally.

Oh, and you know what else is controversial? Whole Foods' donation of sandwiches to the National Guard, probably an encouragement to the Guard to stop the thugs from burning down their store.

But the thugs want to burn shit, and it's racist to do tell them "No," so.

Obama said that a Iranian thug boat was dragging that Maersk ship back out into the Persian Gulf.

 

I'm just reading in a Krautish tabloid that it's still tied up in Iran. 

 

A lot of new (to me) details.  Ship was chartered by a German company.  Captain and mates are Eastern European, crew is Asian. 

 

They've had telephone contact, everyone is healthy.  Everyone is also confined to quarters except for bathroom breaks.  Chartering company has no idea why the ship was waylaid.

75 This is the problem with letting them on twitter.  They ruin everything we create.  First we had Myspace, then they came in and ruined that.  So we went over to Facebook.  Then  they showed up.  Now that's no good.

On to twitter... and here they are, right  on time. 

We steal their music  and dance moves.  They steal our social media outlets.

I don't know if this is a fair trade  or not.  Oh well, onto the next thing... what's this instagram business all the kids talk about these days?  Have  the blacks found THAT one yet???

88 I said it on Twitter and I'll repeat it here: I'm sick of black people assuming they have a monopoly on being assholes and crooks.  All races have their share of dickheads who get a thrill out of ruining other people's lives in ways both large and small.


I live in NH.  Nine times out of ten when I call someone a thug I'm talking about some white sumbitch (or bitch, b/c I'm equal opportunity) who's swagging along, acting like s/he wants to break some windows and steal some shit.  


Thug's only a racist codeword if the majority of thugs you encounter happen to be black.  To the rest of the universe it's just another way to call someone a dick with criminal compulsions.

91 The idea, as many of you may know, is to make ANY word and/or criticism "racist." They do not want to debate; they want to destroy and take over. The monster has been incubating for 50 years. The only reason it may not be that bad is thanks to Planned Parenthood nipping this in the bud, as it were. Hence, the importation of millions more "disaffected Democrat youths" from south of the border to populate the cadres. We are heading for disaster.

2. We are supposed to have a national conversation about race so

3. Everything is whiteys fault.

Well, in  Sherman's defense, he's not a thug.  He's a  punk.  Big difference.  Sherman just said it was racist  because  he was talking  to a bunch of sportswriters, and he's smart enough to know  that  the last thing a bunch of  liberal  white jock-sniffing sportwriters want to be accused of is anything not pre-approved by their big brothers and sisters in the news  division.

Style tip:

 

If you just burned down a convenience store, threw a rock in a window, beat up some random person, murdered some people or were otherwise destructive then I am going to consider you a thug. So is everyone else.

 

You might turn some people too chickenshit to call you a thug because they are still afraid of being called racist, in which case they will think of some other way to say the same thing and it will start to piss you off in the same way. Because language is adaptable.

212 re earlier post about weather and gdp--

this misses the point. *democratic* snow hurts growth and excuses a flagging economy

*republican* snow causes a stimulus effect as all the plow drivers are paid overtimes and artificially boosts gdp.

that is why the correlation looks mixed.

At least that is what I have learned reading the msm over the years.

Also, if 80+% of kids are getting their meals at schools, then I'm assuming those same 80+% of families aren't getting any SNAP benefits. I mean, because they don't need them for the kids since the kids are getting meals at school instead. Ahahahahaha I crack me up.

It's bizarre, the idea that someone owes them food, is responsible for their children if school is unexpectedly cancelled.

Do these children starve on snow days, too?

And what about weekends - does the food magically arrive on Friday afternoon to feed them on Sat and Sun or are they starving over the weekend, too?

If you can't feed your kid on a school day off then maybe you're not a fit parent. I know: racist.

I know it's backwards, but most of the supporters like Van Jones trot out their cutesy Community Activist sayings like "Rioters are the voice of the unheard" and whatnot, essentially claiming the rioting (not protesting) is an acceptable form of political speech.

303 Dear SJWs, If, when we use "thug" to describe a person of certain behaviors, you're going to insist it's racial? Somebody's community needs to come to grips to itself. And it ain't mine. Yrs. Trly.,

According to the dictionary, synonyms for thug include vandal, bandit, bully, criminal, gangster, goon, gunman, hooligan, rioter, rowdies, troublemakers, delinquents, gorilla, hood, punk, and ruffian.  I'd be supportive of any of those terms, if thug (short by the way for Thuggee, who were organized gangs of thieves and assassins in India, destroyed by the British in the 1830s) is for some reason unacceptable.

Easily costing the government over $200,000 per year. I would trust her with a voucher deal to home school at $140,000/year that she would have to declare as income and pay tax on. Vouchers.

That is how this all works.  Conservatives in general like things the way they are so they don't want to move at all.  The Progressives keep trying to change the rules so they can make the Conservatives move. 

My favorite Newspeak is the one where they start lecturing me about how the GOP is so far right of where Reagan was.  If anyone believes that I have a bridge I want to sell you.  The left has just moved their own flag far down field and are now claiming that their current positions are what they always believed.  JFK would not be backing gay marriage or any one of a dozen hot ticket issues that the left screams about these days on MSNBC.

We need, to paraphrase Bart Simpson, a Vietnam to thin THEIR ranks -- or at least to teach them what is a real, actual problem, and what isn't.

When people feel they have no other outlet (public complaint, the voter box), their options will get a LOT grimmer, and the thuggies and the Left will end up on the losing end of that one.

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Forget about the past and all your sorrows,
The future won't last,
It will soon be over tomorrow.

I don't ask for much, I only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it just ain't easy.

Open up your heart, let's come together, Use a little love
And we will make it work out better.

Yep.
Would also depend on details - was it daylight or at night (where it would be harder to determine it was a toy)? Was it one of the many nerf or super-soaker type guns that all clearly toys (flourescent colored, etc.) or was it a more realistically styled gun in a dark color, made to mirror an actual gun model? Under what circumstances was he using the gun - was he chasing around friends and laughing (playing cops and robbers, water pistols) or was he the only one w/a toy gun and it wasn't obviously role-play game to an outsider?

476 I think I understand the logic.

1.  A word is used to con notate bad behavior.

2.  Someone of a protected ethnic class performs bad behavior.

3.  That word is used in conjunction with someone of a certain ethnicity, performing undesirable acts.

4.  Ergo, the word is racist.

488 The Sunbeam Mixmaster developed a case of "Runaway Speed"  Having to use one hand for the spatula and the other to rotate the bowl presented a problem as the beaters took off.  Eventually I accidentally dropped the spatula into the bowl and the beaters were bent way out of shape. 

We had had it for 30 years.  Time for a Christian burial in the local landfill.
