Kunstler: Trauma Programming

Public Policy

As the nation awaits the gruesome spectacle of the so-called debate between Trump and Clinton in an election campaign beneath the dignity of a third-world shit-hole, we are once again up to our eyeballs in manufactured racial strife led by the deliberately prevaricating New York Times. Read today’s front-page story: What We Know About the Details of the Police Shooting in Charlotte, insinuating that the police acted recklessly in the incident.

The facts in the Charlotte, NC, shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott are these: he was shot after refusing repeated loud verbal commands to drop a gun. A gun was found on the scene with his fingerprints on it, along with an ankle holster. Video recordings provide a clear audible record of these commands. Yet the Times story says: “Body and dashboard camera footage released on Saturday provided no clear evidence that Mr. Scott had a gun. In the video, Mr. Scott’s arms were at his sides and he was backing away from his vehicle when he was shot.

It happened that the various vehicles parked on the scene interfered with the all the video footage of the critical moment: dashboard cam, officer’s body cam, and the cell phone cam of Mr. Scott’s wife. But the insinuation seems to be that because the video doesn’t show a gun, perhaps there wasn’t one.

The police insist that Mr. Scott was holding a gun. Why is The New York Times bent on ambiguating this story? The officer who shot Mr. Scott was black. The Charlotte police chief is black. Does the Times mean to say that they are incompetent, dishonest, and reckless? Does the Times seek to reinforce a popular notion that police in general, including black police and their supervisors, are determined to oppress black Americans generally? Does the Times wish to sow even more distrust and animosity between black America and the police?

It sure seems that way. And what is The New York Times’s interest in dragging out the supposed ambiguity of the Scott case? I shall tell you why: because yielding to the obvious truth in the matter would not support the election campaign meme that Black America requires the protection of the Democratic Party against genocidal police forces across the nation.

One result so far is several nights of “protest marches” in Charlotte that led to the shooting death of another person, a black man, by another black man in the crowd, for reasons as yet unknown, plus a lot of property damage due to looting and mayhem on the part of the mob.

Why is it so important to political progressives to keep feeding the story that great numbers of black people are being unjustly murdered by police? The facts, of course, suggest that this is not true. Earlier this summer, The Washington Post could not ignore the study published by black Harvard economist Roland Fryer, Jr. How a controversial study found that police are more likely to shoot whites, not blacks. And why in the long-running issue is it such a low priority to ask the truly salient question in all of these fatal confrontations: how are the suspects actually behaving during the incidents in question?

As a blog-writer, I correspond with some interesting people. One of them is a middle-aged black man who has worked for a long time in the Baltimore black ghetto. He is one of those rare Americans these days not susceptible to pre-cooked ideas about what is actually going on in this country. He would prefer to remain anonymous for reasons that ought to be self-evident, but I want you to see his interesting theory about what is going on in the black community vis-à-vis the police shooting meme. The subject line in his email to me was “Trauma programming.”

Its a type of narcissism designed to compensate for [the] fact nobody (of any value) really wants to deal/interact with them; therefore, they gladly adopt this false narrative that “somebody is after us and wants to kill us…”

See how that raises their value by claiming somebody “wants us?”

Its like the ugly fat girls obsessed with getting raped/sexually assaulted.

Truth be told, because so many black people are not useful to each other and/or other people… they end up only a liability. Therefore, most people spend a significant amount of time trying to dodge them. (but the police can’t do this)

This increases their sense of worthlessness, which forces them to cling ever so tighter to this false narrative of  “the police are after us and want to kill us…”

(nobody wants you and we wish you would just go away)

But wait,

it gets worse.

At this point, some black people decide, “try as you might, I’m NOT going to allow you to ignore me, because I’m going to act like a belligerent a-hole until I force you to deal/interact with me…”

NOW you gotta call the police.

And when the police show up, the black person says:

“see, here come the police; they are always after us because they want to kill us…”

But at the end of the day, the key is; the “Long Emergency” is generating increasing numbers of superfluous people; black people are only the most visible, vocal element of this phenomenon.

    JHK has slipped back into full-race baiting mod again I see. For the guy that penned the term, Long Emergency, he seems really uncomfortable dealing with some aspects of what his ‘The Long Emergency’ would actually look like it plays out. From his recent posts on the matter, its pretty clear he must have thought TLE would be an all-white, (or jew) affair, an event where uS blacks quietly went away(somewhere) and had the good manners not to disturb the amerikan empire and society while it was collapsing.

    The Ds want to gin up the black vote to elect Hillary. The NYT and the bulk of the MSM have enlisted in this efforts. Obama did his part by backing Black Lives Matter as it was forming, and George Soros is providing funding for the group now.

    Attacking the police—even black police—-as racists our to murder black men is a much more powerful issue for the Ds then complaining that Rs want to have people show their IDS before voting.

    Kunstler has an important point and that is redundancy. When people become redundant in a politically correct world bad things happen. Redundant is a politically correct word for trash. We build in obsolescence and now we have obsolete people. The difference is obsolete people don’t feel obsolete. All people feel special so you have a collision of reality with expectations. Expectations unmet are seeds of conflict. That is where we are at now. This is global not just a decaying American culture. Welcome to our brave new world.

    Will be setting the alarm clock tonight at 03:00 am, regardless of the “dignity” of it all.

    beneath the dignity of a third-world shit-hole

    Dear mr Kunstler: if you invite large chunks of the third world to your shores, your country becomes a third world shit hole.

    Interesting that Kunstler clearly sides with the police and against the NYT. Not sure why he wouldn’t vote for Trump.

    No word about peak oil in this piece. A possible meltdown won’t come from that direction any time soon. It will come from a total different direction and Kunstler finally begins to see it.

    At this point, some black people decide, “try as you might, I’m NOT going to allow you to ignore me, because I’m going to act like a belligerent a-hole until I force you to deal/interact with me…”

    NOW you gotta call the police.

    Well, that will certainly help in getting attention alright, the wrong one…

    nobody wants you and we wish you would just go away

    …and if you don’t go away, we will go away. This is no longer our country any more.

    The entire election is about one thing only: demography, not suburbia, peak oil or one of the other hobby horses of Kunstler. A Trump presidency will mean that the life span of this country is going to be prolonged with another 4 years. Provided that the US deep state will give Trump a chance to become president and war doesn’t erupt before November in Syria.

    Clogged, it’s good you have found such meaning and purpose for your life. Good for fuck all except another dopamine hit eh? Trump talking gets your tired old heart a pittering and a petering right? Dutch boy wonder getting up at 3am to watch the merican canned Q&A live. Clogged, Americans do not debate in public except in high school and university. They already know the questions moron. It’s pure theater. Vaudeville actually. As far as I am concerned anyone watching it is a willing participant in the smoke and mirrors show – clueless morons (sorry mom). About the only thing that can get me out of bed at 3am is a full bladder or an offer of a blow job. Full bladder happens every night. Blow jobs? Not so much these days. Go figure? The quest for my Doomer queen continues.

    “Trauma programming.”

    Could say the same thing about all the formerly employed whites who are now considered nothing but dead weight and useless eaters. Lost their position in the social hierarchy and are now down in the pit with the poor blacks. A position many got just by being male, white and showing up. Now millions of women and minorities have the jobs/income level they used to have and they don’t like it. So the anger and anger turned inward (addictions & fantasy) has reared it’s ugly head. All that anger directed towards the groups with the least power and influence and none towards those who made it all happen. Like those who prefer foreign workers, like Trump. Traumatized and looking to cling to anyone who promises to be their new Daddy and make the boo boo’s go away – pure fantasy and magical thinking.

    Donald Trump Thinks American Workers Aren’t Good Enough for the Trump Organization

    “The news that Donald Trump turned down 94 percent of American job applicants to his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., in favor of foreign workers brought in under the H-2B visa program should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. Over the course of the campaign season, Trump has proven himself a liar of Clintonian proportions, and there has never been any reason to believe that he was somehow more trustworthy when it came to his rhetorical opposition to America’s foolish immigration policies — the ostensible raison d’être for his presidential campaign, one might recall. Moreover, the fact that he is more gold-obsessed than King Midas should have suggested otherwise. And, indeed, this turns out not to be the first time that Donald Trump has undermined American workers to expand his profit margin. That has been his M.O. throughout his career.”

    North Carolina Bans Public Access to Police Dash Cams (and body cams)

    “Governor signs yet another bill that disregards civil rights and liberties.

    What good are police body cameras, or police car dash cams, if the footage they record is off limits to the public? That question might best be posed to North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, who yesterday signed into law a bill making that footage inaccessible to the general public, including everyday citizens who were recorded in the footage and might need it to prove police misbehavior. Despite widespread outcry, including protests and submission of a petition signed by more than 3,000 people, House Bill 972 received little opposition in the Senate, where it passed by a vote of 48 to 2 before the governor gave final approval….”

    Could you us a break from your Trump obsession?

    Nowhere in the article is there a mention of Trump but you start bleating about Trump again. Can you spare us from more of your Trump drivel please. There is more to the world than Trump. Your posts about climate change are interesting, please do more of those, but your blathering endlessly on about Trump is just a waste of time, especially in a topic that has nothing to do with Trump.

    The MSM jamboree of lies and falsification continues.  Anything to cram the batwoman down the throats of the American voters.  Only Hotflash and the Demonic Party can save the poor, suffering Blacks from anti-Black Uncle-Tomish Black policemen.  Yup, there is a special place in hell reserved for Blacks who do not vote Demonic.

    This narrative agrees perfectly with the group trance shared by the academic and leftist elites who suck off of the American taxpayer.  Not to mention the megabanks bankrolling the Clitorian campaign — to say nothing about the WallStreet mafia dons, or the White-hating ideologue in the throne room.

    According to the ancient Greek tragedian Aeschylus, the first casualty of war is truth.  That is what we are witnessing in the current psywar of the elites on the American nation.  After all, the masses cannot handle the truth.  They might object to the destruction of the country by criminals of every sort.  What they don’t know won’t hurt them.  Until (snicker) it’s too late.

    Kunstler is a horrible racist. should apologize for giving him a forum. Ever since Kunstler blamed Trayvon Martin for being murdered Kunstler sickens me. And now he says his philosophy as clear as day. According to alleged human being Kunstler and peak, black people are redundant. Thanks for your clarity.

    Clogged are you having some of your Fascist Dutch bum buddies over to watch the 3am fake debate? Sitting around the TV in your PJ’s with mugs of Coco & Cookies, gleefully hanging off your new daddy’s every word and hissing and booing when the witch speaks. The event of a lifetime. The super Euro critic of the evil empire is cheering on one of the most disgusting .01%er men it ever produced. No worries plenty of other retards in foreign countries are cheering on one of the most disgusting women America has ever produced. All the yaking and venom spitting and cheerleading for nothing. Just show time for the sheeple.

    Like the man said “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it”

    I’m not in it and you’re not in it – most of us are not in it. Trump and Hillary are in it and one of them is about to secure their position in the club permanently by further enriching the rest of the club members for the next four years. You can tells us all about the fake debate tomorrow. I won’t be watching it nor the election because I already know who is going to win (those in the club) and who is going to lose (those not in the club).

    Hillary in a heavy coat (temp 21C/70F), stumbles from stairs and looks old:

    Wonder if the “keep talking, keep talking” chap will be standing next to her during the entire debate.

    Will she make it to the podium on her own?

    Can she stand up for an hour without stool?

    Will Jennifer Flowers be sitting on the first row?

    The MSM will declare Clinton the victor afterwards, that’s for sure, unless she drops dead during the debate.

    “What if I could prove to every American family their children were being brainwashed at every level of education? What if unwitting mothers and fathers worked the live-long-day to try and provide a better future for their kids, only to see them indoctrinated into an unsustainable system? … When I was a kid movies about the Soviets or Nazis or Communist China exerting mind control were all the talk. Every Saturday a kid could go down to the cinema and get a hefty dose of “American democracy” freeing up those brainwashed commies, US detectives uncovering escaped Nazi war criminal cells deep in some Amazon rainforest. We were supposed to be terrified of the color red, and anything associated with propaganda. I guess you all know by now, we were largely hoodwinked.”

    Americans are taught to NOT think. like religion, the indoctrination begins at birth. Only a few are ever able to break the conditioning and think outside the US MSM box. If it is “Made in America” it contains propaganda.

    Real dirt slinging now by Clinton, accusing Trump of scamming in thousands of cases.

    Civil servants blaming enterpreneurs of going broke, who stand up again.Yuck.

    In the US apparently the same baloney about racial profiling as here. Darkies commit the brunt of the crime, yet the people who are far less probably of committing a crime should be checked proportionally as well.

    Clinton begins to look exhausted.

    Clinton accuses Putin of hacking.

    NATO obsolete! Yeah!

    Clinton scores points on proliferation.

    Mr. Trump, Europe is not going to pay for US soldiers, we’ll have our own.

    Trump won’t do first strike!

    No clear winner in this debate. Trump has no charm like Ragan had, Hillary looks tired. Perhaps slight advantage for Clinton. Although in the end she is doing too much nitpicking regarding Trump’s life.

    Clogged isn’t it time for your alzheimer’s meds old man? How someone could live 72 soft years and be such a no nothing fucking retard is a testament to the failure of the eurotard welfare state. Everyone here has an internet connection and/or a TV, so no one needs you to give us a play by play of the fake debate. What’s next clogged, are you going to inform us every time Trump takes a shit?

  29. makati1 on Mon, 26th Sep 2016 11:10 pm

    Friday says “Everyone here has an internet connection and/or a TV, ”

    Now that we have all been fooling ourself for five years or more with that “peak oil is nigh” story, should you not use your googleator and provide us with sensationalist “we are all going to be fried now” garbage? Apparently we can’t live without sensation. Doesn’t need to be real.

    Meanwhile the real source of collapse that could be immanent will social/financial. Kunstler has finally seen the light.

    Mr Tumbleweed, Kenz300 and noobtube all assumed that whitey is going to function as an ATM ad infinitum, regardless of how high the bill is presented to him. And if the high performance breeders in Africa decide to set up shop in the North, whitey will be willcoming him with flowers.

    Newsflash: not going to happen.

    Currently 100 million Africans are ready to move. The US tool UN is broadcasting that Europe and America should take them in “to take care of the old age of whitey”.LMAO

    Expect uprisings soon in both America and Europe. Maybe the collapse of the Deutsche Bank will trigger the general financial and subsequent social collapse. What white man in America and Europe needs now to survive is the death of the US empire and its rulling banker cartel that plans for our demise. We need a complete reset of geopolitical relations and that can only come through (civil) war.

    If Clinton wins, all gloves are off and we are going to have that war almost immediately, probably beginning in Syria. Russia and China are ready and the EU fools won’t be able to mobilize Europeans in a large scale war against Russia and China.

    You don’t want to be a leftist in this decade. Time to settle the score against the society destroying multiculturalists.

  31. Cloggie on Tue, 27th Sep 2016 4:31 am 

    CNN and NBC polls predictably claim that Clinton “won the debate”; internet polls all say the opposite. That’s of course not true but it doesn’t matter either.

    It means that the majority of the web surfers have a preference for Trump. It also means that it doesn’t really matter who will score the most points in the remaining two debates. Everybody knows what is at stake: will European America go under and drown in third world immigration or will it draw a line in the sand. 2016 is the last chance to halt it via the ballot box. After that civil war and secession are the only options left.

    Trump refered to it yesterday, the quality of airports in America: mostly third world. In the new top ten no North-American airport is listed, it is all Eurasian that is now top of the bill:

    That’s what you get if you let third world migration happen unhindered.

    These debates are a joke on the level of reality. To listen to the topics and discussions is like a prostate exam. You know you have to do it but it is still disagreeable. When I watch these things I feel intellectually violated or I would equate it to watching a bad comedy which I can’t stand. I bopped in on the debate a few times mainly to see the people not their message. I wanted to see their stamina and finesse. I checked in early then gave up. In my opinion for the short time I watched Trump was thumped. Clinton set traps that Trump bit on. The whole money thing was a disaster for Trump. How rich he is and his taxes. Most of all Clinton looked at least in the beginning strong and in control. Clinton reminded me of an evil red witch. I imagined a tail on that ugly red outfit with horns slightly protruding from the hair doo. I am not sure how tired she was near the end but in the beginning she was strong. I see no reports this morning of her being haggled near the end. Trump had to knock her out to maintain momentum. He didn’t do that so he lost in my opinion. This debate could have won him the election and didn’t. Clinton is still in the race and likely now with her own momentum. The race is still a toss-up but the idea of a knockout punch is gone. In my opinion the race has just begun again. This country is polarized so the message doesn’t matter. What matter is the individual’s strength and election ending mistakes.
