Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

Today’s blacklisted American: Cinderella, because cast was “too white”

Cinderella banned

They’re coming for you next: A theater company in Minnesota decided to cancel its production of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella because the cast was “too white.”

Chanhassen Dinner Theatres was planning to stage Rogers & Hammerstein’s classic play later this year but a director scrapped the show this week — slamming its lack of racial diversity, twincities.com reported.

“It was 98 percent white,” the theater’s director, Michael Brindisi, said of the show’s actors Wednesday. “That doesn’t work with what we’re saying we’re going to do.” Brindisi said he considered recasting but instead decided to put a self-inflicted spin on cancel culture — and “scrap this and start fresh with a clean slate.”

“Recasting” is a mealy mouthed word that really means he would have fired some white actors he had already chosen and replaced them with black actors. And the only reason he would be firing them is because of their skin color, since he had already done his auditions and decided that these people were qualified.

I suspect he realized that if he did that he’d be vulnerable to some really bad publicity, even court suits. Better to fire everyone, start casting a different play where he could begin with a quota system favoring minorities. That way no one would have evidence of his bigotry.

These artistic bigots complete the quartet of legal and cultural racist communities that now rule America. First it was corporate culture, represented by Coca-Cola. Then it was the academic community, represented by Cornell University. Third was the government of Vermont, representing our modern corrupt legal community.

Today we at last see an example of the fourth member of this quartet, our modern bigoted entertainment and artistic community, which is so obsessed with race that it is willing to create racial quotas that favor minorities, even if it makes no sense.

Running through all four groups is a self-hate that manifests itself in an outright bigotry against whites. Though it has been decades since racism has acted to thwart the aspirations of minorities (remember, this is a country that voted twice for a black president in just the past twelve years), these white bigots have decided they must bow in acquiescence to those minorities, oppressing themselves and other whites out of fear, guilt, and their own anti-white racism.

America’s social fabric cannot long sustain such unjust behavior. Sooner or later the oppressed will revolt, and it will likely do so violently. We will have race war, caused not by the fake boogie-man of “white supremacy” but by the bigotry of our ruling culture, which has decided that all whites are evil and must be oppressed.

If you wanted to create a real white supremacy movement, you couldn’t do better. Evil always begets evil. The best way to fight it is to not do it, something our political, academic, corporate, and cultural leaders no longer understand.

    They also really needed more women and minorities in the Dunkirk movie. Way too white and way too male. It completely ignored the historic contributions of women and people of color, without whose bravery in the English Channel during the operation LITERALLY nobody would have been rescued.

    This made me think of “Cinderfella” where Jerry Lewis vaulted up a flight of stairs in about three bounds-and had a heart attack.

    So there he is…in the oxygen tent-and his Dad peeks in:

    “Do you know what you’re doing to your Mother?”

  • Talk about burying the lede. The very next paragraph after the one cited (6 paragraphs in):

    “The production company has hired a diversity consultant and says it plans to focus on becoming “a more intentionally anti-racist theater” with “identity-conscious casting,” it said in a statement.”

    But, gotta get five paragraphs of White-bashing in, first.

    So, nothing wrong with the story, just the actors, as Robert alluded. And live theater wonders why it’s struggling.

    Somehow I bet if there was a movie about a tribe in Africa, they wouldn’t be complaining that there’s no white people in it.

  • On this one, I couldn’t care less. However, I do find the lumping of all “whites” together amusing. I thought Cinderella was a German tale, so I was going to make a snarky remark about Americans playing Germans. It turns out (yay, Intertubes!) to be even more interesting:

    The first recorded story featuring a Cinderella-like figure dates to Greece in the sixth century BCE. In that ancient story, a Greek courtesan named Rhodopis has one of her shoes stolen by an eagle, who flies it all the way across the Mediterranean and drops it in the lap of an Egyptian king.

    Are Greeks and Egyptians “white” these days? I keep losing track of the definition.

    Poster, Brian had previously asked me about my former Liberal Democrat friend:

    Brian, Hope springs eternal:

    If you remember I had previously written about a liberal friend who out of the blue had sent me a surprising revelation about her rejecting Liberalism and the Democrats, and she accredited me with getting her to see the error of her political ways. I had not heard from her since just before the presidential election and was unsure about what her position was and if she had remained convinced of the fraud of the Democrats and what they have turned into. It was a very stressful time for her and I just let her alone and have not heard from her since.

    I just received a message from her and this is a part of it:

    “I’m interested in knowing more of what you’re doing politically post election, but don’t discuss anything online anymore. All I know is I continue to become more conservative by the day, just not in extremes. The liberal news is garbage and I can’t stand to listen to it at all…and don’t. I’m amazed at the righteousness of so called liberal intellectuals who are running in herds like sheep ignoring intellect (as well as our civil rights.) For another time.”

    She WAS a fully indoctrinated Liberal Democrat / feminist.

    Like I said, hope springs eternal.

    I’ve spent a bit of time in Minneapolis/St. Paul (and Hastings, and Red Wing)– The outer suburbs are almost as white as Vermont, wonderfully expensive, expansive, woke, and insulated geographically & monetarily, from the more ‘globalized’ parts of the central city area’s.

    Well, I plan on it! I think we should sue the NFL and NBA, too!

    I think it depends on who they shoot. Or by whom they are shot.

    THE WAGES OF CHAOS AND “SOCIAL JUSTICE”

    Patrice Colures, self professed trained Marxist and co founder of BLM buys a comfy shack in Cali.

    Patrisse Khan-Cullors Buys Topanga Canyon Home – DIRT

    “Political Correctness” and the extorsion of multi national corporations pays well.

    You can not argue with success.

    Capitalism or the extorsion of Capitalism which ever you choose can pay well indeed.

    Its all about the Benjamins.

    Cotour-
    Nice house.
    It would be a darn shame if someone burned it to the ground. A darn shame.

  • wayne

    Cotour–
    You been following the BLM/ Patrisse Khan-Cullors stuff?
    She actually owns at least 4 homes in total, the Topanga Canyon house is just her most recent purchase.

    Wayne:

    “Prominent Black Sports Writer Jason Whitlock Locked Out of Twitter for Criticizing Marxist Grifters at Top of Black Lives Matter”

    Everyone and all act in their own self interests and “Trained Marxists” are no different. They love, love, love Capitalism and what it and a bit of manipulation can provide. They got theirs.

    This IMO is based in the same kind of logic, “I have it, it came from the oppressive you know what elites, and so I have a Right to it and I am keeping it”.

    Its all about the Benjamins as the culturally approved “Woke” saying goes.
