Could you hear it when we busted her arm?

THURSDAY, APRIL 29, 2021

Back to those fourteen minutes: Maybe it's the weather today. Or maybe it's the several hours we lost this morning.

Whatever it is, we're beginning to feel like the Harrison Ford character in Witness. 

A bit like the early Plato of the Seventh Letter, the Ford character—his name is John Book—goes into a type of internal exile due to the despair he feels concerning his human surroundings. 

(On the other hand, Kelly McGillis is present.)

Witness was a Best Picture nominee at the 1986 Oscars. We've often wondered why it isn't one of our top favorite films. (Notorious, Casablanca, My Brilliant Career. We still remember the way one audience gasped when Judy turned Sam down.)

Concerning Witness, we think we have a rough idea, but we aren't totally sure. In the way it ends, it's a bit too much like a Mannix episode. You shouldn't let the venal figures enter the sacred world of the moral and spiritual retreat.

Regarding Best Picture nominees, we continue to be amazed by the way the mainstream pundit world reacts to this year's Promising Young Woman. We can't say we've ever seen such a systemwide ability to miss the point. But then again, why bother?

Now for today's true shot at erudition:

We recommend this Washington Post news report live and direct from Loveland, Colorado. Especially, though, we recommend the 14 minutes of videotape to which that news report links. 

We're not sure we've ever seen such instructive videotape. There's no way to feel good about the instruction offered there, but we're not sure we've ever seen such instructive tape.

Did you hear it pop when her arm came out? If you want to wonder about our human world, we recommend watching that deeply surprising tape.

It hasn't been mentioned on cable news. There may be instruction there too.

      My ex-boyfriend dumped me one week ago after I accused him of seeing someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any contact with me. I was so confuse and don’t know what to do, so I reach to the Internet for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help them to get their ex back so I contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and assure me of 2 days that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you Dr Believe. You are truly talented and gifted.He is the only answer. He can be of great help and I will not stop talking about him because he is a wonderful man.

  2. Somerby wonders why this hasn't been on cable television yet. Possibly, it's because the information is just now coming out and becoming public.
    Also, Somerby keeps pointing out all of the times that police are violent towards, or shoot white people, then claiming that racism is not why Black people keep getting shot by police. Maybe he's right. Maybe it is not systemic racism in police departments, but just the fact the police are systemically trained to be aggressive and violent in almost every circumstance.
    Black people are just the canaries in the coal mine.
    Despite my comments yesterday, maybe "Defund the police," is not such a stupid idea after all.

  3. “A lot of people get shot and killed by police officers in the U.S. We'll repeat the points we feel we should make every day:

    As far as we know, no police misconduct is involved in the bulk of such cases.”
    http://dailyhowler.blogspot.com/2020/09/the-disappeared-and-dead-why-was.html

    But the media needs to get busy reporting on all those white people shot or harassed by the police, then the blacks would know there’s no racism. Problem solved.

    On the other hand, reporting on all those white people shot or harassed by the police would make white folks see all the police misconduct, which would disprove Somerby’s contention, and then the whites would join BLM demanding the police be defunded.

    Maybe Somerby just needs to admit there’s a problem.

    1. Or maybe BLM, with all its power, needs to realize we're all in this together and talk about specific cases of whites being brutalized too. Instead of just "taking care of their own" they could show empathy for white people too. Shit happens to whites too, not only blacks. Blacks get hit harder, but in no way does that mean we should only focus on blacks. We need to join forces and address police brutality against people regardless of "race."

      Delete
    2. If the problem were only police brutality, this would be a reasonable solution, but there is racism in addition to the other problems with police. Joining forces will do nothing to stop racism, which is real and does exist.

      Delete
    3. Both can be done by joining forces, focus on police brutality of people regardless of skin color, and highlight racism. This is the best solution, as it values human life equally. If the focus is exclusively on people with darker skin color, that implies those lives matter more, which is a heinous idea. A black death is equally tragic as a white one in police encounters.

      Delete
  4. mh, that’s not an accurate paraphrase of Somerby’s point.

    Somerby believes that some of the hyperbole about blacks being hunted down by the police has served to literally terrorize people, especially children.

    It is possible to be concerned about the effects of conscious and unconscious racism during police encounters with minorities, without engaging in rhetoric that is over the top and bereft of mediating context or information.

    Somerby is gracious enough to see that as the media sensationalizing things for gain. I think it’s a political tactic to stoke fear and cynicism in the country.

    This is evident by the reaction from partisans to any suggestion that they approach a discussion of the topic in a way that doesn’t sound like a newsreel about the commies circa 1958.

    The response to that suggestion is invariably to write dumb things like you just did and/or call people racists for even suggesting it.

    1. Somerby has declared there is no racism. Specifically: “the (largely imagined) intersections of "race" and crime and punishment.” [http://dailyhowler.blogspot.com/2020/09/how-and-why-do-unarmed-women-get-shot.html]

      And the quote about the rarity of police misconduct.

      So, no, he isn’t just criticizing the media for sensationalizing things. He is saying there is essentially no problem with policing in America. How much clearer can he make it for you?

      And as more and more videos come out showing how wrong he is, he continues to ignore this. His position is incoherent.

      Delete
    2. No he’s not saying that. You have people here expressly saying that all cops are corrupt and you can’t tell the difference between saying that racism is nonexistent, from saying that the narratives that stem from the concept of what is called intersectionality are often hyperbolic contrived crap.

      Delete
    3. “the narratives that stem from the concept of what is called intersectionality are often hyperbolic contrived crap.”

      That’s just a fancy-ass Harvard professor way of saying there’s no racism. That’s all it is.

      Delete
    4. So you have less regard for the intelligence of Harvard professors than Somerby. He wouldn’t accuse them of thinking that.

    5. So, you have no rebuttal, then.

    6. mh 6:46 - too bad for you you reason so stupidly.

    7. (just because it causes you to miss out on a lot of interesting things.)

    8. I have a rebuttal: you didn't connect the two statements (your and his) with any logic, facts or sources.

      Delete
    9. It’s very simple: either there is racism in crime and punishment, or there isn’t. Either race does intersect with crime and punishment, or it doesn’t. It is double talk to suggest otherwise.

      Delete
    10. Idiot. That doesn't equate to a claim of no racism as you know. There are all sorts of intersections, the main and dominate one being class. Something you idiots never even think of. The notion that there is an intersection of only of race (which you idiots only think is black) is imagined. It's a narrative. Totally idiotic to attach a claim of 'no racism' to something as nuanced as this. Pathetic fool.

      Delete
    11. mh was quoting Somerby and there is no doubt what Somerby was saying. Calling mh an idiot changes nothing about what Somerby said.

      Delete
    12. It is because there is no doubt what Somerby was saying that makes clear mh is a stupid, naive, neurotic fucking idiot as are you. You think what Somerby said is a claim there is "no racism"? IDIOT!!!

    13. "You have people here expressly saying that all cops are corrupt..."

      Do these clear-eyed, common sense people have names, or do they all post as "Anonymous"?

    14. Hey, dear mh is extremely upset about certain thoughtcrimes. Do you mind?

      And may we remind you that dear mh is a Very Virtuous Person ™ who is sending every cent they can lay their hands on to India, the largest provider of pharmaceuticals in the world, to save the people of that unfortunate country.

  5. BTW- the horror going on India is a scene straight out of The Plague by Albert Camus.

    I can’t recommend that book enough, for both its realism and allegory.

    5. What was your fucking point? That the horror in India reminded you of a book? Does that make you educated that you read a book by Camus? Are we supposed to be impressed? Do you give a shit about the horror in India? If you did, you seem like a sick fucking hypocrite for voting for Trump, who unleashed a similar horror here through negligence and outright anti-public health policies that allowed thousands to die needlessly here in the US. So I’m going to say you don’t really give a damn about India.

    6. Of course. That’s true of everyone who isn’t you. That’s where you live now.

    7. So you have no rebuttal, then.

    8. BTW- TDH recommended The Plague which was the way I came to read it and why I referenced it here.

      I had never heard off the book before his mention of it.

    10. You don’t rebut this sort of tirade. Doing that assumes certain traits in your accuser that aren’t realistic.

    11. In other words, you have no rebuttal. Your concern for India extends to noting how it reminds you of a book, just like Somerby.

    15. Interesting. I just read Animal Farm, and I don’t think it has anything to do with politics. Can’t people just let a nice story about a bunch of talking animals be a nice story about a bunch of talking animals?

      And mh, wow. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anybody as totally bested in an exchange, as Cecilia just bested you. And the cherry on top is that you don’t even know it happened.
