So Hamish MacYusuf, or Humza Yousaf, as he’s known to his family back in Pakistan, has been elected Leader of the (cough) ‘Scottish’ (cough) ‘National’ Party. He’s the guy who berated the Scottish Parliament for having ‘too many white faces’ – or to put it another way, too many Scots. I imagine his first priority will be to put that particular problem to rights. Meanwhile south of the border an Indian Hindu rules over the whole country as does another one across the Irish Sea in Dublin. The irony is that Yousaf has been a terrible Minister, incompetent, careless, lazy, failing to master his brief and devoting his time to combatting the imaginary specters of racism and Islamophobia, leaving the Scottish health system in an utter shambles as he fails his way upwards. And of course caught by police for driving without insurance…….while he was Transport Minister!
But that’s par for the course in the West these days. Presumably you’ve seen some of the affirmative action morons put forward by the Bribem Administration who displayed not one iota of competence in their ‘field of expertise’. Judge Kato Crews, a federal trial court nominee failed to answer a basic legal question during his confirmation hearings. He didn’t know the meaning of a Brady Motion. Jesus Christ – even I knew that! – it means that the prosecution must provide exculpatory evidence to the defense if it comes into their possession. This particular federal judicial nomineedidn’t know what Article V of the Constitution stated. “Article V is not coming to mind at the moment” Bjelkengren responded. “How about Article II?” Kennedy pressed. “Neither is Article II,” Bjelkengren blanked, leaving Kennedy scratching his head. You can see how Judge Pinkey got her job.
A clueless judge is one thing (the qualified ones being bad enough) but a clueless Director of the Federal Aeronautics Agency (FAA) is quite another. This inspirational figure couldn’t answer a single aviation question posed to him by a Senator at his hearing. Say goodbye to planes not falling from the sky, especially as cockpit crews are now set to become more diversified as this NY Slimes article gloats. (“Hi dare folks. I is yo’ pilot and imma gettin’ yo’ ass to yo’ destination real good” – followed by a stampede for the emergency exits.)
A common characteristic of AA appointees is their sense of entitlement and their incapacity for embarrassment. If you check out the links above you’ll notice the cocky way these morons behave. Instead of slinking away, faces covered in shame their attitude seems to be…..I’m [insert persecuted minority] so I’m entitled to it, godammit! Same with the recent Academy Awards where apparently a “Race storm erupts” because a white actress (Andrea Rieseborough) was nominated for a best actress Oscar, thereby stealing the nomination from a black actress. Till Director Chinonye Chukwu (yes, one of the Royal Berkshire Chukwus, whose great-grandfather was Adjutant to Lord Wellington) denounced the film industry for “upholding whiteness and perpetuating an unabashed misogyny towards Black women”. LA Times film critic Robert Daniels wrote: “Although it’s easy to point a finger at Riseborough for taking a slot from Black women, broken systems persist when we focus our ire on individuals … what does it say that the Black women who did everything the institution asks of them – luxury dinners, private Academy screenings, meet-and-greets, splashy television spots and magazine profiles – are ignored when someone who did everything outside of the system is rewarded?”
No, he was not being facetious and no, this is not parody and no, it’s not from the Babylon Bee. Read it again and understand that he was deadly serious. Let its full significance sink in. And here’s The Guardian in similar vein. “To Leslie’s campaign was assisted by two PR companies, Narrative and Shelter, and appears to be self-funded, while Till and The Woman King were backed by deep-pocketed studios United Artists and Sony respectively.” You get that? Because the big money was behind the ‘black’ movies something dodgy must have caused them to lose. And indeed the Motion Picture ‘Academy’ decided to conduct an investigation into the affair. That is, how a White actress in a low-budget production won the award in competition against black actresses in lavishly-funded productions. In due course the ‘Academy’ reported – grudgingly, I imagine – that no foul play was uncovered. Nevertheless Variety ominously warned that “no matter what happens, her [Rieseborough] reputation is being tarnished, whether her campaign did something or not.”
I hesitate to repeat the following aphorism because through overuse it’s become a cliche. But yes, “those whom the gods wish to destroy they first drive insane” has never been more appropriate. We can acknowledge the manipulating hands behind the curtain but whatever, we have been driven insane.
