I do not like Josh Rivers. He’s boring. His insults are tedious. He lacks wit or the insouciant, rebellious charm of say, Milo Yiannopoulos. He’s just a garden variety asshole of somewhat below average troll ability.
I completely understand the tactical advantage of not interrupting an enemy when he is making a grave mistake, and I, too, find the spectacle of wingnut lefties devouring their own in an orgy of virtue-signalling to be quite delicious, but this circus show should really only be a momentary enjoyment, because the slope here is very slippery.
Josh grovelled obsequiously to his overlords, to no effect, which is precisely the effect he should have anticipated.
‘To every single person who is hurt, offended and disappointed: I’m sorry.
‘I have long taken steps to address the issues that prevented me from treating people with the respect and kindness I value so dearly now.
‘It is because of my past and my own awakening that I’ve since pivoted everything in my life towards supporting and empowering our community.
‘It is upsetting that the damage I caused before has now resurfaced to cause more pain.’
In a separate statement, Rivers described his messages as ‘horrible’, ‘hateful’ and ‘abhorrent’.
He said they came from a place of ‘deep self-loathing that I’ve worked hard to overcome’.
Yes, it’s fun to gloat when SJW cannibals descend and devour a scrawny little holier-than-thou asshole like Josh, but if all we are going to do is gloat, then the same power structures that are actually causing harm will be left intact, and we will be no closer to kicking open space in the dialogue for uncomfortable truths that everyone knows, but are too afraid to speak.
The African continent is plagued with murder and mayhem?
THIS IS NOT A SECRET. Let’s talk about race and IQ. The facts don’t disappear because someone got fired over a tweet.
Retard monkeys is just an inelegant way of saying not everyone is equally evolved.
Jews have big noses. Wow. So enlightened.
Can we discuss the selective breeding over centuries that put Ashkenazi Jews at the top of the verbal reasoning pyramid? Jews can’t beat Asians when it comes to STEM, but that whole ‘make sure the smartest members have lots of children’ policy sure worked out for the Ashkenazi!
Oh dear. Now we are going to have to talk about the selective breeding of Black Americans during slavery, and the whole history of slavery itself.
These are all interesting, provocative and actionable questions that have the potential to lead to immediate solutions for pressing problems. What if the low achievement of southern Blacks is relative to diet? It’s likely not, as Thomas Sowell explains, but Sowell is not god.
Maybe he’s wrong. If skin color is a determinant of IQ, then why are West Indian Blacks so much more successful than American Blacks or African Blacks, and why does the achievement gap for Black American men disappear if the boy’s mother is white?
No Black woman has put a Black man in the White House. Barack’s mom was white.
Historically, there was no deficit in Black achievement if Black children grew up in two parent families. This is true for all families.
There are tons of interesting questions with potentially good, solid answers that affect assholes like Josh directly, and we should be cautious about cheering when the tongues of those who would dare to ask are torn from mouths of those we despise.
Josh is a dick, but he is speaking truth, inelegantly and inexpertly, devoid of charm, grace or panache, but truth nonetheless.
We should be careful about watching our enemies drown their own. As fun as it is to see them gasp and sputter like terrorists waking up to a Waterboard Instructor at Guantanamo Bay, sooner or later, the enemy survivors will remember who the real enemy to their program of silencing is, and reacquire.
Josh has cast his professional net in dangerous waters where truth is not permitted.
We should pity him. Pity, after all, is a benign form of abuse, and I enjoy abusing the foolish and hypocritical as much as anyone. But we should be smart about our enjoyment.
The enemy’s weapons are not our weapons.
We must remember that.
Lots of love,
