Yeah, thanks, no

Yes, it’s racist, and it’s discriminatory. But hey, I’m perfectly fine with it.

Clueless in Seattle: Human Rights Group OKs Charging White People ‘Reparation Fee’ to Attend Pride Events
The Seattle Human Rights Commission is not only cool regarding a “pride” event that will charge those evil white people a “reparations fee” to enter, they also suggest those who complained should “educate” themselves on the harm they might cause by attending.

I’ll be sure to keep that in mind, thanks. Meanwhile, here’s another Left Coast loonie bin that needn’t lose any sleep worrying about my baggy white ass attending any events thereabouts. Like, y’know, ever.

Tourism bosses in Portland have taken out a full-page advert in the New York Times admitting the riot-hit city has an ‘edge’ – but urging visitors to come anyway.

Travel Portland – a nonprofit which oversees the Oregon city’s tourism marketing – referenced reports of far-left violence in the city in the ad.

It admits that much of what has been said about Portland – whose 50-strong riot squad resigned last week – was true, and that the city, which endures nightly riots, has an ‘edge.’

‘You’ve heard a lot about us lately,’ the NYT ad begins. ‘It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us.’

‘Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What’s most important is that we’re true to ourselves.’

The advert goes on to highlight Portland’s problems – and implies that locals don’t mind the out-of-control behavior that has made much of the city’s downtown area a no-go zone after dark.

It says: ‘We’re a place of dualities that are never polarities. Two sides of the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.’

Glad to hear it.

‘This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome – whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You could be yourself here.’

I can “be myself” right where I’m at, too, with little to no risk of being attacked and/or murdered in one of your world-renowned riots included in the package. Actually, I’ve never had the least problem “being myself” in any of the numerous places I’ve traveled over the years. To the undisguised chagrin of the locals now and then, sure, but I went right on being myself anyway. They got over it, or so I assume.

‘We have some of the loudest voices on the West Coast. And yes, passion pushes the volume all the way up. We’ve always been like this. We wouldn’t have it any other way.’

Have a ball, y’all. Fret not, somebody will be along to put out all the fires eventually. Possibly.

‘We have faith in the future. We’re building it every day the only way we know how, by being Portland. Come see for yourself.’

Been there, saw it, no need to see it again. And that was years ago, before it became the violent, anarcho-tyrannical dumpster fire (literally) it is today. So yeah, hard pass. HARD.

We’ve always been like this.” This statement is pure unadulterated fertilizer.
20 years ago, if you’d a mind to, you could walk from Gresham to Beaverton any time of day or night without ever once having to look over your shoulder (or feeling the need for your Glock that you left at home). It was a clean, (OK! washed by constant rain) safe city with some excellent restaurants and pleasant people before the invasion by the Kalifornicators.

Come for the Riots, stay for the Beatings.

Not a good Tourism slogan if you ask me. I’ll pass.

Anyone stupid enough to go celebrate faggotry should have to pay a stupidity tax. I’m good with that.

As far as Portland goes, it was once one of the safest cities in the US. It, along with Seattle, was the example that lefties would point to in order to explain that not all of their cities were third world hellholes.

Notable Quotes

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards." – Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.” - John Adams

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged." - GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved." - Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid." — Dwight D. Eisenhower

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork." - David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress." - Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine." - Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.” - Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it." - NC Reed, from Parno's Peril
