Priorities

A friend of the blog emails:

I don’t really like having police departments barricaded. But, I understand it. I look at [Saint Paul city councilwoman] Nelsie Yang’s post and I really don’t see a lot of support for her demand that the barricade be torn down, especially from non-White constituents, the very people she claims to be supporting in this action-

To social justice warriors like Yang and, let’s be honest, most of the Saint Paul and the entire Minneapolis City Councils, “social justice” with all its intellectual and political trappings is an abstract, academic concept that has little to do with the lives of their constituents – or at least the ones not employed in non-profits and academic humanities and soft science departments.

Rarely do people like Yang allow themselves to come into contact with the real life concerns of those they “represent”

When they do? It’s entertaining, at least.

  1. The thing is The People may know what they want but it takes the Nelsie Yang’s of the world to know what they truly need.

    Given that, it is best that Nelsie keeps her distance from the prols, least she be confused by wants rather than needs.

    Clear enough?

  2. GolfDoc – I’d suggest the M240B vs the M60. It’s a much easier tool to disassemble and deal with. A lot less stoppages as well. Same ammo though.

  3. This got me wondering; what happened with John Thompson, the black reprobate candidate who and former SPPS janitor who went on illiterate, incoherent, racist rampage in Hugo?

    He is now Rep. Thompson, one of the people that will make the laws under which you will be forced to live. But he’s still oppressed, and don’t you wipipul forget it!

    It won’t be long before state reps are swinging from light to light across the room in the House chamber during debate, buggering kids in the cloakroom between votes and demanding animal sacrifices before the start of the session…so vibrant!

    $20 says he’ll show up to his inauguration in a pimped out Escalade, baked af.

  4. The problem with removing barricades is they leave the building vulnerable to the next flash mob until barricades can be reinstalled.

    The real solution is to eliminate all police so we can convert the building into a recreation and midnight basketball center. Then, it won’t need protection from flash mobs: they’ll already be inside.

    I think I’d prefer them swinging from lampposts. Which, if you follow history, will likely be next.

  6. NW, not likely. Just look at the voting record – the prols like to be proled and will keep electing the prolers. So no, in MN, history will not be followed.

  7. shaking,

    If the M240B jams less often than the M60, that would be an improvement. In all fairness, the M60 doesn’t really jam that often, but when do, they can be a bear to clear.

  8. Boss: I think the 240 is superior to the 60 in about every aspect. If you’ve ever shot/looked at a M249 (SAW/Minimi), it’s essentially the same thing in different caliber. Taking it apart and cleaning it (and clearing) are much easier.

  9. smh:

    As a Vietnam vet, outside of an M16, the other rapid fire guns that I fired, were the M60, the MADeuce and only because I had a buddy that worked in Fire Control Systems, a GE M61A1 Vulcan 20mm, which were used as tail guns on the B52-H models.

    As nice as the M60 was to fire, I’m glad that the current generation has something better.

  10. Boss: Yes, it’s nice when some of that defense money makes it’s way to the folks in close contact, instead of just for airplanes and boats. Body armor (vs flack vests), load bearing equipment, helmets, radios. and night vision are all areas that have really changed since your time frame.

  12. Bill C, I was thinking more about the Hmong, but you’re right, the Smallies will be gutting goats in there too.

    It’ll look like a mashup between the last night scene from apocalypse now and the group therapy scene from 1 flew over the cuckoo’s nest.

    And the best part is, the transcripts from those shitshows become MN law.
