Take your ethics and …

We’ll just skip the lecture, thank you.

Careful readers will notice that the denizens of the Werkes and its associated industries — lettered, unlettered, and indentured — are resolutely unprogressive. Even deplorable! Many reasons (freedom being one) but mainly, we can’t afford the dues.

  • We don’t wear face diapers while driving alone on Madison’s Beltline. 
  • We back the badge.
  • Our Second Amendment armaments are well oiled, loaded, and ready at hand.  
  • We don’t do “Guilt” because we pay our taxes and respect your property.
  • You’ve got every right to spout nonsense but don’t trash my town.
  • We watch Fox and listen to Our Ms. Vicki.
  • Our pronouns are “Mister,” “Sir,” and “Your Lordship.”

The EthicistWhich is why we get a good guffaw out of that column in the Sunday New York Times Magazine, “The Ethicist” written by a certified Black Man and practicing progressive. The enterprise is a popular salt lick for guilty White (we capitalize it) liberals seeking to expunge their unearned privilege and sprinkle themselves with some of that holy victim dust. Today’s installment is a real laff riot; a self-flagellating penitent wails:

“I’m Jewish and don’t identify as White.
Why must I check that box?”

Why, oh why?! (Lamentations of the Overly Woke 10:30(1)) Name Withheld writes:

Forms of all kinds often ask for a person’s race. I strongly support affirmative action for historically disadvantaged groups. … I’m fair-skinned and have an Anglicized last name … I can easily ‘pass’ as white … It’s more of a moral question for me. I don’t identify as white.

(How about identifying as stupid?) The proprietor of “The Ethicist” starts out his exegesis with the Old Testament story of Jacob and Esau. Thereupon, Kwame Anthony Appiah natters on (and on and on) with a graduate-level Grievance Studies lecture because progressives love the sound of their own morality. They can never get to the point. But Blaska Policy Werkes (like the Candy Man) can!

The answer, Name Withheld, is simplicity itself: Abolish all forms asking race! What business is it of government? And what is “race,” anyway?

Q. What “is” Tiger Woods?
A.  One helluva good golfer! 

To inform government policy? Does Oprah Winfrey need reparations? Is there a Black way of learning and a White way? (However did Dr. Ben Carson learn to use a scalpel?) If we abolished all those boxes, would Yale still be able to discriminate against Asian students?

Blaska’s Bottom LineHere at the Werkes, we believe Science Is Real and the capital of Israel is Jerusalem. And that identity politics is killing the idea of e pluribus unum.

What do YOU think?

      Sheldon Adelson 2010 (Video on YT) : “I am not Israeli. The uniform that I wore in the military, unfortunately, was not an Israeli uniform. It was an American uniform, although my wife was in the IDF and one of my daughters was in the IDF … our two little boys, one of whom will be bar mitzvahed tomorrow, hopefully he’ll come back– his hobby is shooting – and he’ll come back and be a sniper for the IDF,” Adelson said at the event.
      N.Pelosi to IACNC/AIPAC 2019: “If Washington D.C. crumbled to the ground, the last thing that would remain is our support for Israel.”

    Being Jewish is a religion. I’m Jewish and white. Sammy Davis Jr was Jewish. I’m sure there are Jewish Hispanics and Asians as well. That person is an idiot.

    You have to watch when on the beltline, because someone without a license plate on their vehicle will ride your bumper, jump in emergency lane to pass, cut you off while doing 80 to 90 mph. They do not care about life or limb. And, be very careful when your light turns green, look both ways because they are exempt from stopping for the red lights.

      The beltline? The Gotch is just as concerned with Toyota Pious/EcoBox driving slow in the fast lane so you can read their Gosh I’m Nice bumper stickers..

    A cudgel…to be wielded…with fearless aplomb…against pathetically guilt-inundated White Lefties; stick with what works, am I right…..?

    David, you are 100% correct in your statement. Race should never be a part of the discussion. It is character and competence that matter more than anything. When the _hit really hits the fan, you want someone that is really competent to take control and fix the problem.

    Let’s put it this way: Do you really care who is flying the airplane when it suffers a mechanical breakdown and you go into a tailspin at 38,000 feet and are headed to earth at great speed? Do you care if it is man or a woman; a black, white or brown person flying the plane?

    None of that makes a bit of difference at that point.

    The only thing, and I do mean the only thing you care about at that point, is whether or not you will smashed into pieces, or you will walk away when the plane comes into contact with the ground.

    As my father used to say: Any landing is a good landing, as long as you can walk away from it.

    The only thing I’d add to your excellent list is that I only feel guilty when I’ve done or said something to hurt someone. Being white isn’t one of those things.

        Gg Mo,

        You don’t know who Ms. Vicki is? It is Vicki McKenna who is on WIBA AM 1310 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm M-F. You can also listen to Dan O’Donnell on the same radio station from 9 am to 11 am followed by Rush from 11 to 2.

          I no longer own guns, but it’s because I don’t sport shoot, or hunt these days. I’m all for home-defense etc. etc. gun ownership ,and am a member of GOA. I’m also not “white” (100% european), but a mix of Scottish, Spainish, and S.American. , and believe that it is absolutely “Okay to be white.” : )
