Trying to provide a red pill to a guy who is convinced of systemic racism in police departments and that they target unarmed blacks. I've seen numerous pundits make the claim an unarmed white man is more likely to get shot by cops than an unarmed black man. Does anyone have a citation that backs that up?

This is very good.

One reason Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, beyond her own shortcomings both personal and political, was that “Obamanomics” had so self-evidently failed. Clinton’s inability to win over working-class voters in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin could be interpreted as a negative referendum on Obama’s policies. While Democrats blamed “Russian collusion” for Trump’s stunning upset victory, it seems far more plausible that the Republican’s promise of an “America First” economic agenda was the real reason for his success. Contradicting all the “expert” predictions, Trump’s policies sparked an economic boom that produced the lowest rate of African-American unemployment ever recorded. And how was he rewarded for this? Impeachment.

What can explain this? Cognitive dissonance is a psychological term describing the mental stress we experience when confronted by situations that expose conflicts between our beliefs or when we receive information that contradicts what we believe. Liberals believed in Obama, despite all evidence that suggested his policies weren’t working, until finally confronted with unmistakable proof in the form of Donald Trump’s election. No Republican presidential candidate had won Pennsylvania and Michigan since 1988, but Trump did it, and his victory was a source of cognitive dissonance that liberals were desperate to resolve. So they blamed Russia, and sexism, and most of all, they blamed racism.

What's he talking about?

The Infamous Ignatz

The more I observe the more I think leftism and all ideologies are a form of mental illness.
One of the hallmarks of a personality disorder is that the disorder is the person's identity. That's what a personality is. It's not only who we are but it's the mask we wear for the world, literally.
Personality from persona - Latin, meaning "mask".
For a "neurotypical" as the normal are sometimes called, the mask is relatively transparent and there mainly to maintain social norms and for the benefit of others.
But for the disordered it is as opaque as they can make it and it is there to protect what they perceive as their fatally flawed interior, usually at any and all costs.
That is why those with PDs are noted for habitual, pathological and sometimes quite bizarre lying. And as anyone who has dealt with a political ideologue knows, lying is one of their main political tools.
Similarly anyone outside the disorder are viewed as enemies who might expose the fatally flawed interior and so elaborate and unhealthy defense mechanisms are developed to protect and preserve the flawed center. And along with the shame of this perceived flaw and the harmful defenses usually runs a pretty intense anger and animosity over the unfairness of it all. The individual often directs that anger inwardly but the ideologue seldom does. For the ideologue anger is reserved for those who threaten the collective ideology, either from without or within.

As I've said before I consider the political spectrum to not consist of equally authoritarian extremes of right and left but of a continuum that spreads from totalitarians, traditionally what are called the far left and right, on one side to total libertarian on the other. Libertarians themselves tend toward a pretty mild ideology, but a rigid, rote and ultimately unsuccessful one. But it is utterly benign compared to the other side of the spectrum.

Those people have embraced their politics in the same way the disordered embrace what they believe is their fatally flawed interior. In fact I would say there is a good deal of overlap or comorbidity as the head shrinkers say between apolitical mental disorders and political ideologies. They both attempt to live in a false world and dream incessantly of a utopia that will exist someday if they can arrange things just so. In that false world any contraindicating facts, figures or data from the real world are assiduously rejected as lies or evil intent by their enemies or those who would hurt them, which they usually perceive as anyone outside the realm of the little world they create. And since the main method by which a false world is maintained is by lying to oneself and because the person's defenses and identity itself are wrapped up in this false reality anything goes as far as protecting that world, including the most outrageous and irrational lies and perceptions imaginable. Oftentimes the lies become an actual believed reality rather than intentional.
As Hoffer noted the mental illness of an ideology usually takes place in a mass movement. It's in effect a form of collective personality disorder.
The primary difference is, for the average, garden variety PD afflicted individual it is individual; they live in a false world they have created and it is usually a very lonely, painful existence.
One other difference is that an ideologue who begins to feel safe in the collective, especially as it gains power, is often more willing to drop the mask in public as the social cost of doing so declines.
A cult I suppose would be a state of existence somewhere in between.

But from our perspective they all share a common thread; they're irrational and not subject to reason. For the truly committed the only recourse is to shun them and have no contact with them because they can't be reasoned with. Nor can we change or fix them. Like a fish up a rectum, apparently it is a lot easier going in than coming out.
It's no longer a matter of persuasion once a person subsumes reality and their perception of it to their inner mind and makes their peace of mind, to the extent they have any, contingent on maintaining those misperceptions and deceits. Some, a relatively small number, will awaken at some point and either change or try to change, though they often just substitute another pathology for the one they abandoned. If it occurs it is an interior process, though external stimuli or crises may precipitate it.

If an ideology remains small enough to not hold power, all's well.
But once it gains power, the normals have three choices; defeat it politically, which is difficult because of their fanatical zeal and win-at-all-costs mentality, revolt and dislodge them from power or resign oneself to living as best one can in the dystopia of their fantasy realm where might makes right, up is down and life is a lie.

Confusingly, like the mentally ill, an ideologue will often have segments of their life that are not disordered or at least not that can be seen from outside. They may love their kids or their spouse or their dog. They may be conscientious employees or bosses. And they usually perceive the rotten things they do as necessary defenses to a difficult world they wish would disappear.
But in the end, for those who have made the personal the political and whose root identity is their ideology, if push comes to shove your freedoms and liberties which exist in the real world are subservient to the false one they exist in and hope to make universal because they find the real world unbearable.
And because they find the real world unbearable and hopelessly imperfect compared to the utopia they're creating, there are no limits to what they'll do to create it. Especially since that utopia always and necessarily remains out of reach.

There's a dishonest Fox headline that homicides in LA are up 250% in a week. From the Fox reporting, this percentage increase seems to have translated into one homicide during the period. But everyone knows "media is idiots." But the story has interesting facts on who got shot:

The homicide victim, Fox said, was "a man in his 40s, died at the scene. No information was available on the man's identity, or on a suspect.
The other three shootings:
— At about 2:10 p.m. Monday, a person was wounded near Daley Street and Manitou Avenue in the LAPD's Hollenbeck Division by a man who fled in a vehicle. The victim was hospitalized in stable condition.
— At about 3:45 p.m. Monday, a person was wounded in a gang-related shooting near Spaulding Avenue and Cologne Street in the LAPD's Wilshire Division by shots fired from a vehicle. The wounded person was hospitalized in stable condition.
— At about 9:20 p.m. Monday, "multiple" victims were wounded in a gang-related shooting near Telfair Avenue and Sheldon Street in the LAPD's Foothill Division by someone in a truck that sped off. All were hospitalized in stable condition."

If those victims are representative of the people in LA, I'm wondering if everyone in LA is in a gang ... Looks like the police have been only moderately effective against gangland, both before and now …

So Ig, what you are describing is mass psychosis. Their reality is not the reality of others.

The other factor is that they are fed a pack of lies daily. There a sinister stew of false information which, even though confronted with the facts, allows those individuals to bathe in their delusion.

I am about to re-read Kindelberger's book because I think there is a correlation between Hoffer's mass man and manias, panics and crashes.

When one takes a psychological/psychiatric perspective it really seems like mass mania when you see a large part of our society acting like 5 year olds.

don Surber made me laugh:

ITEM 1: The National Interest reported, "An Iranian-American doctor from Florida has arrived in Iran as part of an arrangement to free U.S. Navy veteran Michael White.

"American dermatologist Matteo Taerri pleaded guilty in December to violating U.S. economic sanctions on Iran. He was sentenced to time served last week, the same day that Iran allowed White to leave the country.


"Another Iranian scientist, Sirous Asgari, was also deported to Iran last week as part of an unrelated case, although the Trump administration denies his role in any prisoner exchange.

"Taerri had been arrested and charged alongside Iranian scientist Masoud Soleimani as part of a scheme to export medical research supplies to Iran. Soleimani was released in December 2019 in exchange for Xiyue Wang, a Princeton history researcher arrested for espionage in Iran."


I am not saying I am condoning such exchanges, but I am curious as to what we could get for Valerie Jarrett.

Deplorable D

There is no way that one murder can be a 250% increase. If there were even one murder the first week, to get get a 250% increase, you would need 3.5? murders the second week. In fact, to even be able to make that claim credibly, you would have to have a minimum of 2 murders the first week and 7 murders the increased week. Since I live in LA County, I have been trying to pull apart the statistics that the LAPD is using, but all I see is a report of the tweet, not the numbers behind it.

Also, I think the one murder refers simply to the number of crimes reported in the previous 24 hour period (Monday, June 8, 2020).

Will see if I can dive a little deeper.

This is good.

No one in the collective can or will note the radical shift from mandatory isolation to mass riots. Collectives don’t recognize that their herd impulse has changed. Life for the brainwashed is unchanging. Once there was always isolation and now there are permanent protests. Tomorrow there will be something else. But that is not a concept that the “We” are capable of embracing as a collective.

"We're All In This Together” is a state of mindless and unquestioning conformity. And it’s un-American.

Americans are not a Communist collective: we are a nation of individuals. Our togetherness doesn’t come from the illusion of functioning as an undifferentiated mass, but of pursuing our own individual strivings for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Collectivism is a lie that conceals the humbug wizards behind the curtains, and the oligarchies that make the decisions. It tells us to set aside our own interests and needs, to become part of Zamyatin’s “We”, to stop thinking and believe the lies.

The lies keep changing.

Yesterday we were huddling in our homes in our togetherhood of apartness. Now we’re supposed to be rioting together and calling for the abolition of the police. Each false cause is replaced by another big lie. If you can see past the lies, you’re not “Together” with the “We”. You’re one of the last Americans.

Someone mentioned The Cowsills and sappy songs. They were the real life inspiration for The Partridge Family,but their story was the opposite of what was portrayed in the show. They were from Newport,RI (their father was retired Navy). He was abusive and the kids were living a lie behind the facade of a big,happy family who happened to become popular in the 1960s. Several years ago at hubby's college reunion,I talked with wife of one of his college friends. She had also grown up in Newport,RI and knew all the Cowsill kids. She and her friends all went to the gigs when the Cowsills played locally,before they became a big deal. She told me that when the documentary came out,nobody had a clue what was going in the family. She was shocked because she thought she knew them so well. The kids were living in a nightmare. It is a very sad story.

...history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations...

...Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!

Last night’s primaries were an emphatic reminder of the enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump
's agenda that is sweeping the nation.

President Trump added to his undefeated 73-0 record of candidate endorsements in congressional primary and special elections this cycle.

I've been thinking about these polls you guys were discussing and I have a hard time believing them. Trumps events are huge while Biden can't seem to fill a HS auditorium.

I wanted to name my daughter Julia but Christina is a 4th generation name so Christina it was and is.

A lefty loon but so was I. I loved his music and still do.

I suppose the never-Trumpers will attach some snarky comments to those tweets? How dare he defend our history.

I am going to link to an old post that featured my first post about Obama's mentor Harry Boyte. I had forgotten the name until we were discussing other things that came out of Minneapolis.

I found it and years ago this was the title. invisibleserfscollar.com/viewing-education-as-the-prime-lever-for-international-social-change-community-organizing-everywhere/

Now we have a worldwide push that is following exactly what Boyte called for and he has been a prof there for many years. Something to think about as there are no coincidences.
