Weeping analysts finally quit Goff!

THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2020

Bafflegab, foofaw meet hokum:
For several years, we've been advising you to view our failed public discourse through an anthropological lens.

We've urged you to drop the silly old claim that man [sic] is the rational animal. Based upon our consultations with despondent yet top major anthropologists, we've urged you to see the species as it truly is, in a new, different way:

We humans are the tribal, script-reading, war-inclined animal! Or so these highly-credentialed experts have told us, again and again.

Are we really the tribal, script-reading animal? On a purely emotional basis, it's hard to accept that idea.

Weren't we initially made in God's image? When did that family line change?

It's hard to accept these new ideas. Today, though, our analysts quit Professor Goff! This is the way it went down:

As the youngsters scanned the site of the Washington Post, their eyes fell upon this capsule:
Few want to abolish police, poll finds
Secretly fearing what they might find, they clicked ahead to a news report about a new Gallup survey. Ben Guarino started like this:
GUARINO (7/23/20): Most Americans agree that police should undergo major changes but do not support abolishing police departments nationwide, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday morning, which found that just 15 percent of Americans support getting rid of the police.

"Defund the police” has become a popular slogan at protests against police brutality after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In late June, most of the Minneapolis City Council voted to dismantle the city’s police department. Council members said that reform attempts had failed and that the Minneapolis police had lost the public’s trust after Floyd’s death.

The concept of eliminating police departments does not enjoy wide support across the United States, according to the survey. Abolishing the police was not a majority opinion held by any group in the poll, including when examined by race, age or political affiliation.
That same report, with that same headline, is bannered across the top of page A5 in today's hard-copy Post. We now see that our copy is wet with the analysts' tears—and it's opened to that very page.

Good lord! Just 15 percent of Americans support "getting rid of the police?" Only 15 percent?

That's easy for Guarino to say, one youngster angrily cried.

Guarino was plainly suggesting that the number in question is small. The disconsolate youngsters couldn't believe that the number could be that large!

As they continued, they came upon this. The worst was yet to come:
GUARINO (continuing directly): The Gallup survey included more than 36,000 people over the age of 18 who were polled from late June to early July. Abolishing the police had the most—though still not much—support among people younger than 35 (33 percent in favor), Democrats (27 percent) and black Americans (22 percent). White Americans and Republicans were likely to oppose the idea, at 12 and 1 percent in favor, respectively.
By now, the youngsters were rending their garments. Several tore at their hair.

A full one-third of people younger than 35 favor abolishing the police? The keening and wailing were hard to endure—but just like that, the shell-shocked, under-age interns-for-life found themselves staring at this:
GUARINO (continuing directly): If presented as total elimination of police departments, the survey might have missed support for more nuanced calls to dismantle police, said Phillip Atiba Goff, co-founder of the Center for Policing Equity. “One notion of abolition is the need for discontinuity from the violent and racist past of law enforcement,” he said.
With that, we were able to redirect the youngsters' dismay.

"You see?" we skillfully said. "It's exactly the way Future Anthropologists Huddled in Caves have always said!"

The youngsters stared in disbelief at the words of Professor Goff. On cable, he's presented as one of the good, genial, bright ones. But look at what he said!

According to the former UCLA professor, his group's notion of "abolition" is "the need for discontinuity from the violent and racist past of law enforcement.”

That's no one else's "notion" of what that familiar word means. But these days, so the heck what?

Why would anyone think that "abolition" means "elimination?" So the professor had said!

The professor was trafficking bafflegab, with foofaw and hokum thrown in. But so it quite remarkably goes Over Here on the tribal tale left.

Do we currently "live in interesting times," as the Chinese warned? Only in the way we're currently able to see human functioning breaking down.

By that we mean human intellectual functioning. That functioning continues to crash and burn as tribal lore gains control of our minds.

In fairness, the anthropologists have been telling us this all along. No matter how many times they're right, it's hard to accept the important new framework which has these scholars weeping and groaning inside their gloomy, dark caves.

He too went to the finest schools: First Harvard; after that, Stanford, for his PhD

16 comments:

  1. If you give a survey without explaining what is meant by abolishing the police, then you will get garbage results because each survey respondent will interpret that differently.

    Those who suggest defunding the police are talking about moving some aspects of the current police role out of policing and placing it with other public servants. Those who suggest abolishing the police usually mean getting rid of the current police organization and starting over, rehiring only those without problematic complaints, providing different training and organizational structure.

    Somerby exaggerates Goff's meaning by omitting other things he has said about policing.

    The survey in question had another interesting result. Only 14% of Republicans want major change in policing, while 51% of white Americans do.

    Somerby has decided to make this black professor who studies policing his new target. His manner of doing that is fundamentally dishonest because he quotes selectively from Goff's statements and from this new survey, focusing on "abolishing" police as if he knew what definition of that phrase is being used.

    "Phillip Atiba Goff is the Franklin A. Thomas Professor in Policing Equity at John Jay College in New York City. He is the co-founder and president of the Center for Policing Equity, and an expert in contemporary forms of racial bias and discrimination, as well as the intersections of race and gender."

    Somerby's first mention of Goff is not to explain who he is or what he has said, but to state that the analysts reject him (not his words or his ideas, him):

    "Today, though, our analysts quit Professor Goff!"

    A racist couldn't have said it any clearer.

    3. When I found PRIEST WISDOM I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contacted PRIEST WISDOM  and He told me  what I need to do before he can help me and I did what he told me to, after I provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since PRIEST WISDOM helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommend PRIEST WISDOM to anyone in need of help. Email: Supernaturalspell1@gmail.com .

  2. From upyernoz blog:

    "Oddly, the Republicans are the only ones who are trying to defund the police legislatively:
    Republicans, meanwhile, have indicated that they plan to unveil a roughly $1 trillion bill; they’ve also shied away from supporting state and local funding, a stance that Democrats — and some Republican mayors and governors — have criticized.
    Police are funded by state and local governments. Unlike the federal government, state and local governments can run out of money and they need to balance their budget. Because of mass unemployment every state and local government is facing an unprecedented budget crunch. If they are not bailed out by Congress, state and local governments will have to do some pretty draconian cuts. The bloated police budgets of a lot of these places is going to be too tempting a target to pass up. With a public deeply concerned about a raging pandemic and what will happen with schools, cutting the police budget is certainly going to be more popular than cuts to education or health."

  3. From 7/22's Rude Pundit:

    "But look at those brave motherfuckers in Portland, man. The federal officers there are making every goddamn mistake in the goddamn book short of shooting someone with live ammo. Yet more and more people, less Antifa and more soccer mom, are showing up for the protests. He's fanning flames, and he thinks the fire makes his orange color shine brightly when it just makes him look like a fucking demon. What do you think is going to happen in Chicago? I don't put it past Trump to go full Kent State. Hell, I don't put it past Trump to cut unemployment benefits so that crime skyrockets in cities and he can justify his troops taking over. It's hard, man, really fucking hard to keep seeing what's happened to this country so quickly. It's heartening to see us not go quietly into that fascist night.

    (Note: Of course, all of this would have been easy if news organizations had latched onto one fuckin' scandal with all the energy, resources, and time they poured into Hillary Clinton's stupid email server story.)"

    This is what media criticism should be!

    1. What scandals is she talking about? They latched on to Russiagate.

    2. Trump's fraudulent university.
      Trump's criminal charities.
      Trump's money laundering.
      Pick one.

      Or they could have just reminded people that the self-admitted sexual predator is a terrible businessman, which isn't a scandal, but would have chipped away at his supporters who bought Trump's play-acting on "The Apprentice'.

      As for Russiagate, the media had to go there. People were noticing the only excuse for Trump's election that hadn't been thoroughly debunked was Republican-base voters being turned-on by Trump's bigotry.
      The media admitting one of our two major parties is a hotbed of bigotry, doesn't fit into their "both sides" shtick, so they trotted out a foreign country as the culprit.

  6. I visited my doctor for a second opinion to verify that I am currently experiencing genital warts on both sides of my inner labia caused by HSV which I was not aware I had until the genital warts appeared. I discovered them about 2 months ago and it saddened me to find the warts because I felt it meant I had contracted an STD,I never applied medical drugs or therapies,because I prefer going natural routes first if any are available. At first, I was not sure I’d be able to use anything since the labia is such a sensitive area but I remembered that I had been reviewing series of testimonies on how herbal doctor razor had been curing people of Genital warts, And I had Them on the bottoms of my feet so I decided to try doctor razor herbs. Thankfully, Doctor razor herbal medication seems to be getting rid of the genital warts. When I first began applying it I noticed some slight aching feelings in my vaginal area that I had never felt before. I no longer feel the aches though. I AM SO GRATEFUL TO BE COMPLETELY CURED OF THIS VIRUS.However, I don’t feel the shame anymore and am so grateful to Mother Nature and Doctor Razor for helping a sister out.

    From the bottom of my heart, I can never thank you enough DR.BALBOSA for the wonderful work you did for me and my kids to bring back my husband. Am stella Andre from England. I was having serious relationship problems with my husband and he was no longer committed to me and our kids, when i asked him what the problem was he told me he has fell out of love for me and wanted a divorce and  i was so heart broken, i cried all day and night, it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on the phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advice that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been married for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter and a son. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to DR. BALBOSA by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend, this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all that DR. BALBOSA asked me to do it and I also followed all instructions given to me by DR. BALBOSA to my greatest surprise after 48 hours my husband called me and rushed back home with a brown new car for me and our kids... things just changed between us emotionally, I was the happiest woman on earth that day. my husband now has a good job and stopped drinking and he stopped keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found DR. BALBOSA...contact him today and get your love back i can assure you .... contact him on his Email on: balbosasolutionhome@gmail.com and CALL/ WHATSAPP: +2347048047728...BYE...
