The Erasure of All Things

Aunt Jemima (cornbread mix, biscuit mix, syrup, etc.) as well as Uncle Ben’s Rice will be renamed, and re-invented (two different companies involved, Uncle Ben following hours after Pepsico (Quaker) announced the Aunt Jemima re-do.

So … what? If sales were down, sure. And if so say that. These two stereotypes distill ideas from my childhood that have kept me favorably disposed toward blacks (African Americans, whatever they want to be called). I no longer see any reason for remaining favorably disposed. It is just an attempt to erase history, and it will become an attempt to erase non-black races. One has to be real careful not to use race for discrimination, and going around labeling things based on race is discrimination. If it starts, it is really hard to stop. Be sure to scroll down…

So what’s next?

Obviously, Dolly Madison. Here is the history of the brand images.

First, there is the real Dolley Madison, wife of President Madison, for whom the brand was named when introduced in 1937. But the brand was actually used in a movie in 1932 before it existed. The real historical Dolley Madison:

DM1

Wow, look at her expression. Quite full of herself. And that dress is as sexist as they come. So she was replaced with something a little tamer and a little blonder:

DM2

The bust line is quite a bit higher, and the smile is more innocent than plotting and sexy. But soon this was too racy as well.

DM3

Oh, well, drawn not photographed. The implicit sexuality toned down by the presence of the child in the background. By the way, humanity has figured out how to have children without sex, so I’m pretty sure something so historically conflicted and associated with exploitation will soon be taboo. The evolution continues toward abstraction and innocence:

DM4

Even more cartoon like, not realistically drawn. Sure, they are holding hands, but there is no sexual connotation. The real Dolley Madison must be rolling over in her grave.

DM5

Hmm, endorsement from famous cartoon characters. In the lower drawing, black and white line drawings. Even less realistic. But look at the icon at the top. This is what Dolley->Dolly leads to. First you drop the e, then you drop the whole body. This is hardly even an icon for a computer program:

DM8

But there is something fatally wrong still. She is still WHITE and a female that we cannot be sure will not marry a male and have a heterosexual family. We must set all doubts to rest. I understand Dolly Madison plans to announce a name change tomorrow and has hired these two spokespersons to restore flesh and blood honest characters to the cartoons:

DM7

I have it on reliable authority from the galactic forecasting computer that by 2120 the following will be the logo for the DDDB (D’Matis Desexualized Deracialized Bakery):

Women leadership styles in 2020

Mayor and police chief of Seattle.  Battered by the action. The topic of “Thelma and Louise” came up in the press conference.  In case you’ve been vacationing on another planet, 5 blocks of Seattle declared independence from the U.S.

Thelma and Louise

Something is wrong with this picture.  The police chief just does not look like she needs to be told Black Lives Matter.  Anyway, moving right along . . .

Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota.  If the voters want to distance or not distance over COVID, that’s their business.  But if they decide to throw rocks, well, the National Guard has already been called.

Noem and the Guard

So much for the police department.  Just skipping right over that move.  I guess she figured they already failed if the protestors got that far.  Um, yeah, probably.

Here are just a few of the possible Biden picks for VP.

Biden

Uh, can someone remind me of what any of them have actually done, besides the one at the upper right.  I know she totally blew her own presidential bid with weird ideas and gaming her genetic family tree.  Some of the odds makers think Michelle Obama.  That’d be odd.  Well, it doesn’t matter.  This next chic is going to roll over all of them.

Dangerous

Kold Killer, she is.  She might look flimsy, but I bet she’s got an implant in her head that activates nuclear missiles.  Probably she’s already done away with her brother.

I have just one question.  The world ruled by women was supposed to be, I don’t know, “different” or something.  How is any of this different?

America’s Color Revolution is in progress

As we speak, or browse the web, a district in Seattle has been declared police-free, the CHAZ or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.

OK, so they are just protesting, right?

Hmm, depends.  If they start making demands and the government starts granting them without consideration of other voters, or possibly even elections, then it is a Color Revolution like in Ukraine.  There were a bunch of them.  They all failed.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c5/Color_Revolutions_Map.png

For that matter, the Arab Spring revolutions, very similar, also all failed.

They didn’t fail to make changes or replace governments.  They failed to produce any good result.  They succeeded at producing miserable results and continuing war and poor economies and getting people killed.

The same thing will happen here.  We have no insurance policy against mass hypnotism and craziness.  It will infect us too, just like the virus.

It’s not just the protestors.  Our police behave just like the oppressive police in those failed revolutions.  I’m not saying one side is right and the other wrong.

I’m saying they are both wrong.

Color Revolutions fail because they don’t embrace the rule of law.  See https://foreignpolicy.com/2013/03/18/why-the-color-revolutions-failed/

Color Revolutions aren’t spontaneous.  They are carefully organized and well funded.  See https://www.laprogressive.com/color-revolution/

People resort to revolution not because they are oppressed.  A continuously oppressed people just stay that way.  They happen because people lose what they have, rapidly.

The Seattle section that gave rise to Chaz is described here as “a hub of the city’s trendy arts scene that has been gentrified in recent years as tech workers drive up property prices.”

So the trendy-arts people, out of work because of COVID-19, having their rent driven up astronomically by west coast technology companies (Amazon, Microsoft, Tableau, Cray, Zulily, Redfin), currently financed by unemployment if they are lucky enough, have time on their hands and a lot of legitimate complaints.  But the one that they see as getting the most traction is BLM due to George Floyd.

Color Revolutions don’t “succeed” because they are organized by people who aren’t able to actually seize power in the target countries.  If the US sponsors a color revolution in Ukraine, it isn’t going to actually take power.  No one in Ukraine planned it and is competent to assume power.  If some liberal organization funds BLM in the US, likewise it isn’t going to actually seize power, and the politicians associated with ultra liberal (or ultra conservative) organizations are usually incompetent.

What happens is these color revolutions just make a mess out of society.  Wise up and go home.  Don’t be somebody else’s stool pigeon.  I’m speaking to both police and demonstrators.

About half the US, some argue more, have been trying to remove their President for 4 years.  Many would embrace “any means necessary”.  It looks uncertain whether they will be able to remove him in the next election.  So they protest.

A few years ago the “other side” held protests, the Tea Party.  Since they gained some political power, the country has been gridlocked politically.

I am simply chronicling the demise of our political system.  I’d say “go get a job” but that’s not politically correct while COVID-19 is “in the air.”  Unless you are an essential worker.

Well, that is the rub, isn’t it?  Only the essential workers are actually needed by society.  The rest is just make work, entertainment.  All proposals to solve this (UBI, etc.) amount to the same thing.
