The Jussie Smollett Hoax is the New Ice Bucket Challenge

This is Philip Wyeth. Pretty ecstatic right now that the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax story’s falling apart. Why? Because on the night of the alleged attack, I wrote this on Twitter in response to the claim that the people who attacked him said, “This is MAGA country!”

I wrote, “This is Egg-On-Your-Face country.” Millions of credulous fools allowing themselves to be whipped into a Pavlovian frenzy by media manipulators. But ‘the feels’ of virtue signaling are
too good to resist.”

Now here we are, two, three weeks later, and it’s all falling apart in outrageous fashion. Every day some new ridiculous detail is coming out. Will this guy take the fall? Will he go to prison? Or will it just be one of those things where in the media, “He needs to take some time for himself, he needs to go to rehab”?

And there would be no consequences for what? Essentially slandering white people, Republicans, Trump supporters.

But what gets me about this whole Smollett thing is it reminds me of the Ice Bucket Challenge a few years ago. Who had the courage to resist doing that stupid shit? You know, it took on a life of its own, and so every friend, every co-worker, every relative kept retweeting or forwarding the Facebook videos of them taking it, and “I challenge you.”

And this time it was the celebrities, the politicians, the media pouncing on this story dujor about some sort of hate crime. How many of these high-profile people are now gonna post, “Hey, I was wrong. I had the Fox Mulder reaction from X-Files. I want to believe.”

They all wanted to believe that this crime was true because it allowed them to believe in their
narrative, and then do some sort of public display of… reconciliation, lecturing, self-righteousness about, “We need to have that conversation.”

But now that it’s all falling apart and proving to be a lie… No, we need to have this conversation, where jerks like me, assholes like me who called it out—because my spidey sense was correct weeks ago—I was the one who was right.

Yeah, I’m a straight white guy who called bullshit on it the day of, while all of you got to pat each other on the back for weeks because you’re part of this self-righteous, progressive, forward-thinking—allegedly—movement. When in truth it was all a lie.

How many other hate hoaxes have been a lie since the 2016 election? Remember the Muslim girl who said that guys in MAGA hats ripped off her hijab? Turns out she was late for her curfew and didn’t want to get her dad mad. And when she went into court a few days later, her head had been shaved by her father for lying to him! Where were you calling him out for his toxic masculinity?

We’re not even two months into the year and we’ve had a handful of these events that, on the surface were one thing, which made straight white males for the most part look bad—and then when the real story came out, it was anything but us who did it. When will you learn? Or because you’re part of this axis of the education, media, entertainment matrix you never face consequences for your incorrect assumptions. Your slanders, your lies.

How much money has the Chicago Police Department wasted that could have been spent on tracking down real criminals, chasing down this lie? How many times are you allowed to bear false witness against your political enemies before you face real-life consequences, and not just a retraction or a correction on page 28 of the newspaper?

And all of the websites like TMZ, New York Times, Good Morning America on TV, who made money on this story, promoting it, not doing their due diligence on the facts. Do you have to return that money, or maybe donate it to a charity in the same way that a celebrity or politician gets in trouble has to essentially give money to some organization that is tangentially related to the party they aggrieved?

I think at the root of this we can track down conformity as being one of the worst afflictions of modern American life. And it’s particularly evident among the political Left, because they’re in this arms race of going along to get along.

I remember when I was at a cigar shop last year and there was one man I was talking to, probably around my age, late thirties, smart guy, a lawyer. And he was saying something to the effect of, “change equals progress.”

And I disagree, and here’s two examples why. Let’s say you lose your arm in a car accident. That is a change, but that is not progress. You find out you have a tumor on your arm. Again, that is a change but that is not progress.

My guess is that even if Jussie Smollett did some kind of perp walk press conference, like Tiger Woods did years ago, the true believers who tweeted about this, wrote articles about it, held rallies about it… They just will not be able to back down and let it go. They are too invested in this narrative.

You just can’t reason with people or so bought into a certain ideology, narrative, group hug mentality that they are not capable of healthy skepticism, common sense, or just waiting to see how things play out. Because the rewards are instant in the Twitter, Instagram, Facebook world.

The bottom line is that the people who are skeptical and had to hold out, hold the line for the past few weeks and are now proven right tonight—all you’ve done is reduced the level of patience or pity we would have for such stories.

“The Boy Who Cried Wolf” is a fable that has stood the test of time for a reason. And it’s now not just the boy who cried wolf, because we can’t assume his gender! But it’s basically an ideology that has cried wolf, a mob that has cried wolf.

And I just think that if you keep trying to pull these things over the next couple of years, you’re taking us to the breaking point. And you really don’t want to see what happens when we get that glaze over our eyes and we just don’t care anymore what you think.

No Safe Headspace in the Melting Pot

This is Philip Wyeth, author of “Chasing the Best Days,” “Reparations USA,” and “Reparations Mind.”

Here at the car dealership where my truck is being repaired, the waiting area is filled with foreign-born people all speaking in their native tongue. One wonders at the infrastructure that was put in place to bombard Los Angeles, and most metropolitan areas it seems, with all these incongruous people.

Back in my home state of Virginia 3000 miles away, the never-ending saga of white/black race relations plays out its latest ineffectual act. It’s got all the platitudes and pandering and righteous posturing we’ve seen before, but which get everyone nowhere—meanwhile another million fresh arrivals to our country, who have no skin in this came, merrily put down their own roots.

Which makes me ask, if any alliance is to be made among heritage white and black Americans, is it a reactionary response to being thrown under the bus by our government, which allowed the so-called melting pot to be overwhelmed by too many new ingredients and random spices?

And if the race hustlers, hate-crime hoaxers, and self-flagellating Leftists won’t even allow us to notice this demographic change happening under our feet, then I suspect that the next reaction will be to channel our yearning need for meaning into a reluctant shedding of our American identity, and in its place return to being European and African.

Any such trend toward ancestral awareness, or even allegiance, would fall firmly at the feet of both government and business. It’s galling to think how casually their short-sighted materialism enabled them to sell out our country’s soul in order to accommodate millions of other nations’ citizens. Now after weathering endless wars, economic collapses, and a mass media propaganda machine that seeks to demoralize us, we Americans are exhausted and fighting for scraps here in this lowest-common-denominator nightmare of subsistence click-bait farming.

We’re so stunted and scatterbrained to the point that maybe there won’t be many more great inventions. No more great striving to create insightful or uplifting art. And certainly no taking inspiration from the great deeds of the past. Why? Because our ancestors didn’t do everything perfectly every time everywhere.

Instead street tacos are elevated to the level of cuisine on Yelp. Sports have lost their status as a “safe space” away from politics. And before judging someone by the content of their character, you must also take into consideration their sob story, or the concavity of their crotch.

The spirit of what made America functionally great—striving for excellence, merit, lofty goals—is being crushed and extinguished in favor of creating a docile monochrome population that sits and shops rather than scales mountains. Zombies who use technology not to further unlock nature’s secrets, but to indulge the Seven Deadly Sins—and sprinkle a little self-entitled grievance on top for good measure.

Picture a small device in your house, such as a coffee maker or electric toothbrush. Think about all the micro-innovations that went into the process of creating the model you purchased. Countless hours spent testing and tweaking the components, all adding to the large repository of knowledge that is later applied to an improved version or another new product altogether.

This is what we in America perfected in the post-WWII boom years—and now risk just throwing away because, what? We’ve saturated the world with technology and home goods, so now the next great messianic dream is to end all conflict and perceived inequity by merging all races into one pigment?

But that’s not how it will play out. Already this new Democrat freshman class is showing the plan: that we will always have to look at each and every thing through the prism of race, class, religion, and ethnic homeland. Like a jeweler holding up his loop to inspect a diamond’s features and noting its flaws, now we too will look at the new Oral-B rotating head electric toothbrush and demand to know: how many women of color were on the team that crafted the motor?

Because we are not free to look up or forward anymore. The Kurt Vonnegut story “Harrison Bergeron,” with its Handicapper General making everyone equal, has become a mental reality.

Our imported problems like Ilhan Omar are here to bite clean through our ankles, rather than fix the countries their own families ran away from. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the vanguard of people who run their mouths to beat an opponent into submission to get what they want, rather than doing the work of quiet introspection that envisions how to solve the problem of morphing clunky DOS-prompt computers into the elegant, handheld smartphones we use today.

So the fork in the road isn’t just about skin color or gender. It’s about having the courage to stand up to people who want to hold a society hostage. Because as we’ve seen especially in the past month, no amount of capitulation or concessions to the Left-wing mob is ever enough. Whether you never opened your mouth but wore the wrong hat, or spent a political career pandering to them, one day that locust swarm will surely come for you.

To keep our self-respect and finally defeat them, from now on just say to them over and over again: no, no… no!

Cosmopolitan Balkanization in the Savvy Smartphone Age

All right YouTube, let’s do a little “Phil by the Dashboard Light .” Tip of the cap to Alex, I hope you don’t hate me for that one.

But I had an idea this morning called “Cosmo-Balkanization,” which I think is happening or going to happen in this country soon. And the thought is this: So with the likes of Ocasio-Cortez being touted as the new face of the Democratic party… You know, Hispanic immigrant or child of immigrants, supplanting old white male Democrat politicians, that’s going to be the future, they say.

But I think it’s going to be further than that, because of some anecdotes and experiences I’ve got to relate encountering immigrants or children of immigrants here in Los Angeles.

The first one is a Ukrainian woman that I met over the summer. Has an American boyfriend but she’s from the Ukraine, and we were out drinking, talking, getting to know each other, and I guess later in the evening the topic of immigration came up, and my thoughts were we need to slow it down, potentially go back to a 1924, “let’s close the borders down for a while, there’s just too many new people here.”

And I think the latest news story saying that sixty million people don’t speak English at home, that’s not a recipe for a, you know, if not homogeneous, sort of country on the same page with itself. So I told her, yeah, I think we should slow it down.

And herself, only coming here recently, disagreed with that. And one of her points was the fact that because I came from the East Coast, I’m from the DC area, but now I live in California. And because I did that, people should be able to come here too. And I had to explain, well no, because I’m moving within the borders of my own country. I’m not going to Canada. I’m not going to Chile. So what I sensed from her was a sense of entitlement, that she should be here, everyone should be here, everyone should go where they want to go.

And in theory that’s a nice concept, this migration notion that everyone gets to wander around. But there’s simply a capacity for… logistical capacities for being able to stay somewhere. Toilets, furnishings, plumbing capacity, sewage systems, food… trucking in the food. All this stuff, no one thinks about that stuff.

And in fact about a year ago or so I had an Uber driver, I’m not sure where he was from, but he was Jewish and there was some sort of foreign, slight foreign tongue to him. And we were talking about stuff and the concept of migrants, immigration came up, and again, what’s the capacity? When do we shut it off? And his thoughts were, well, if you have the room, the space, or the extra money, the extra food, just let ’em in. And again, should that really be the threshold? “Oh well, I have $5 in my pocket. I have to give this to somebody else now.”

No consideration for the fact of what if I’m saving up for a new truck for work? Or I’m saving up for a gift for my child? No, it’s if you have this dollar now you have to give it to somebody else who’s less fortunate or shows up saying they need it. And that is no way to long-term run a society or a family or a business, because that doesn’t, that’s so short-sighted, doesn’t think about the consequences. And if it’s simply a matter of heartstrings, sad images, “I need,” nothing will ever progress with great leaps forward, of inventions, breakthroughs, art.

You know, if someone’s going to be a great violinist, a classical composer, that doesn’t happen overnight. They need a “safe space,” if you will, for many years. To have the quiet space physically so that their mind and body can work together to to learn the instrument and learn the history and to become a great player.

So stepping back to what I was saying earlier about entitlement for foreigners moving in here, and Cosmo-Balkanization. Well, the “cosmo” comes from cosmopolitanism, and I think what we’re seeing because of smartphones is that people around the world have been empowered in a way that was never possible before.

And I think it’s a very interesting experiment, an anthropological science experiment that we’re all part of. Because some of the work that I do in my business, you know, they hire illegal laborers from Central and South America. And I see these guys at their lunch breaks playing with their phones, and I think it’s pretty fascinating.

What is a person from a very small impoverished town in Mexico, who’s now in Los Angeles with a smartphone. What is he getting up to? What is he looking at what? What is he exploring? What is he putting his mind into? Is it just video games or is he trying to learn history?

And then what at what websites, what news sites target first-generation, straight-out-of-the-field immigrants in 2018? What kind of information are they putting in their heads? Is it a matter of indoctrination? Is it entertainment, like Univision with the big-breasted sitcoms?

So anyway in previous generations I think you would have more humble, grateful immigrants. But now because everyone is sort of a “global citizen,” everyone’s hearing the same music, seeing the same movies, we’ve got these smartphones, yeah you just feel like, “I’m here. I can be here. I’m not going to be thankful to this new country.”

And that’s where we’re seeing politically on the news people who’ve been here for less than five, ten, fifteen, twenty years screaming in the streets about Brett Kavanaugh or “white males.” And I guess I’m trying to posit, this is how it happened. This is how it’s happening, and how it’s only going to get worse.

And people have been enabled to be ungrateful because it pushes at an agenda. Particularly politically it’s for the Democrats’ agenda. People are being enabled to be ungrateful because they’re actually pawns in a larger political game. Demographic change, electoral change. All in all, this is terrible for any country that would want to stay intact, and have a sense of identity.

You know, you watch a movie from the late 80s, even some comedy like “The Naked Gun,” and you’re just like, that world is gone. That America is completely gone. And am I allowed, is anyone allowed to lament the fact that the America of their childhood really is gone? Not just a matter of, “I was a boy and now I’m a man, and I’m sad.” No, that world is completely gone, and because I’m a “straight white male,” I’m supposed to shut up and not lament.

Anyway, the future that I see is basically more Balkanization, more special interests, more in-group preference getting a toehold politically. And then the question is, do the new groups that have power, whether it’s Somalis up in Minnesota, or maybe Ukrainians here in LA, Chinese, Korean, Mexicans everywhere… Are they going to really buy in to the principles of the Founding Fathers?

And also something I heard Luke Ford discuss with Jim Goad in an interview sometime in the last year. Luke Ford is an Australian, grew up Christian, converted to Judaism because of Dennis Prager’s radio show here in Los Angeles.

His thoughts are, Northern European culture is the only culture to put principles over tribe, because to survive those harsh winters up in Scandinavia, say, you had to agree on ideas so everyone could survive. Whereas other cultures were always getting marched on and invaded through. The Middle East, Italy, Africa. So tribal/family bonds were more important than principles and ideas.

So the question is, here in America can all these people from more tribal cultures—Asia, Latin America, Africa—can they give up those tribal/family agendas, or loyalties, and really believe in ideas and principles? And maybe that’s what the whole “living, breathing Constitution” versus “strict interpretation” comes from.

So that’s about as far as I’m gonna go with those thoughts right now. I’m very fascinated by it. I don’t know if it bodes well for the future, but you know, if we see… People are talking civil war, that’s one of the new memes, but maybe there are more nuanced changes coming up beyond just outright violence. And if you know about it, if you can if you can visualize it, maybe you can help react to it, if not influence it.

So thanks for listening. My third novel, the first book in a new series actually, is coming out in mid-October. I’ll be making some videos about that pretty soon. I’m very excited! Check my website PhilipWyeth.com subscribe to this channel.

America is Just a Place Where People Live

This is Philip Wyeth. There is a malaise in the air across America. We are a distinct personality type finding ourselves without a homeland. The time in which we grew up is over and gone, and now the land on which we were born is being razed and resculpted.

The world’s poorest and the world’s richest squeeze us from both sides. Then the mind-controlling media tell us how wonderful it is to be a taxi driver or hotel owner, using fancy terms like Uber and Airbnb.

Where are the children of Babe Ruth, Motown, Francis Ford Coppola, and classic rock lore supposed to go in an era when assimilation means the children of foreigners who skipped the line are indoctrinated by childless white Leftist professors into ingratitude and being angry at the country where they want to live?

Is America only desirable because we have toilets and electricity and mostly peaceful streets? Those of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s wanted to make ourselves great, but have been hamstrung by the complete lack of noblesse oblige by our elites.

Economic malfeasance and betrayal on every level have made saving money a losing proposition, and homeownership as a concept almost a human right, but in actuality has become an arms race leading to impossible prices.

Seventeen years of demoralizing and expensive wars all based on highly dubious allegations. The wholesale dismantling of our manufacturing base, while politicians talk on TV about supporting “working families.” Schools so out of touch that we import workers to do high-paying tech jobs.

Now a divided population is licking its chops as if some sort of internal conflict is inevitable.

Were all these policies and misadventures worth it if at the end of the day we have a device in our pocket that can play any song we want, but we cannot communicate with our next door neighbor, either because of a language or political divide?

The America I grew up in was a place that fostered me to be great. It had a distinct identity and a culture that sizzled with creative energy. Now this country is a playpen for the world’s richest to buy up real estate. We’re told it’s a “human right” for the world’s poorest to homestead in an endless stream, using any number of insidious justifications.

And yet people scratch their heads why those of us who were already here fall into despair, smoking meth, committing suicide. It’s because we have the eyes to see that in the course of just one generation the United States has ceased to be the country where an idea was protected and nurtured, to sprout wings through invention, art, freedom of thought and speech.

Now, as the melting pot begins to smell more like a chamber pot, it appears to me that America is just a place where people live. And if that’s the case, and we are told we don’t have a distinct identity like Japan or India, who will take in our mass of anachronistic spiritual refugees?

Or are we expected to quietly be marched into the ghettos of silence, because our history and opinions offend those whose own home countries have far fewer rights than the ones they twist and grandstand upon to use against us?

The phalanx of grievance and entitlement is converging upon good, everyday Americans. All we wanted to do was enjoy life and have families, but it turns out we owe the entire population of the world everything. Literally everything.

We will be hounded by government, self-loathing Leftists, sad media images to manipulate our emotions, and ultimately the Democrats’ army of imported voters.

But to even observe and make predictions is called “hate,” because our globalist overlords have a long-term plan for the world. A total-surveillance heaven without borders or war, because we’re all the same skin tone, have the same opinion, and obediently apply for a permit to purchase a kitchen knife.

But it’s all just part and parcel of being a good global citizen.

Liberal Hypocrisy in the Cold-Pressed Civil War

This is Philip Wyeth. The Left is caught up in an arms race of virtue signaling, which leads to contradictions, and in the end, they always eat their own. The latest example comes to us from Manhattan, New York, where parents at a school meeting were furious that 25% of spaces would be allotted to children whose test scores fell below normal admittance standards, but who are also disadvantaged minorities.

I’ll include the link to the video where some of these parents express their anger. At one point a principal named Henry Zymeck says, “There are kids that are tremendously disadvantaged. And to compare these students and say, ‘My already advantaged kid needs more advantage, they need to be kept away from those kids,’ is tremendously offensive to me.”

This is good stuff. The elite of the elite liberals, who lecture the rest of the country about how great their inclusive belief system is, now circling the wagons when their own enclave is forced to accept diversity quotas. I’m willing to bet that none of these people voted for Donald Trump, and there’s probably pictures of a few of them holding signs denouncing hate at one of the women’s marches.

Look, I’m not even against them here. They worked hard and paid top dollar to get their kids into a school where academic achievement levels are very high. But I will savor the fact that they’re getting a taste of their own medicine. Their beliefs about privilege and unfairness, which they’ve forced on everyone else under penalty of social shame—what a pity that their own safe space is now threatened because some of their own progressive fellow travelers took things to eleven without consulting them.

People on the Left get themselves and society in trouble because they won’t ever let things play out organically. They’ll use the excuse that the legacy of oppression is so massive that “we have to do something,” but maybe the destabilization and resentment their ideas create are actually a worse result.

Nowadays anyone who leans conservative gets painted as a grump, or the bad guy. But maybe we just have a more pragmatic outlook about human nature and how things operate in the real world.

So many Democrats suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome still have not made peace with their 2016 election loss, or come to understand why it happened. What they’re going to find out is that people on the Right, who have kept quiet during years and years of being mocked and demonized—we are done. Whether it’s in polite company or in the public square, liberals’ days of mouthing off with impunity are over.

And if you’re on the Left, you should be scared. Not of violence, but because all those years you spent patting yourself on the back for having the right opinions, which you looked at like, “We hold these truths to be self-evident”—your minds have atrophied!

Meanwhile we, while fending off your attacks, have had to develop strong arguments to justify our existence. I think we wouldn’t even feel the need to flash our teeth if you Leftists had been gracious in defeat. But instead you keep doubling down on the self-righteousness, and now you own so many sacred cows that you’re devouring each other on a weekly basis.

It’s Kanye West facing a backlash for asserting the right to his own opinion. It’s Joy Reid’s non-apology for something she wrote a long time ago, when it could be argued that the culture was much different. And it’s the two white lesbians who adopted a handful of black kids as props, only to drive them off a cliff.

It’s you on the Left who are the problem. You’re holier-than-thou hypocrites with an incomplete worldview. And you lack the humility to step down from the podium where you utter feel-good platitudes toward your friends, then put people you disagree with on the defense through dishonest rhetoric.

But get ready for the next big disappointment. You’re putting all your eggs in the basket that is the midterm elections this fall—but what if the Democrat resurgence doesn’t happen? What if your transient or imported voters don’t turn out enough to help you take back the House?
What if a dozen more of your high-profile allies fall into disgrace while you’re out there chasing your own tail, barking about Russia and Stormy Daniels?

Right now it feels like each half of the country thinks the other political party is days away from scandal, exposure, and arrests that will sink their cabal. So the question is, who’s delusional and who’s not?

Is it the bleeding hearts, who move to red states like locusts after the policies enacted based on their beliefs bankrupted and filled their hometowns with crime?

Or is it the conservatives, who were so disillusioned by the two-party politics during the Bush and Obama years, that they said screw it, let’s give this crude loudmouth Trump a chance? Because he may not act “presidential,” but at least you know where he stands.

This country is coming up on some major shifts. Today we’re living in what I call the Cold-pressed Civil War—where one person at a coffee shop sipping on a fair-trade latte lobs Twitter bombs at another customer, who’s drinking organic Yerba Matte and firing her own social media missiles right back.

But the peace isn’t going to hold forever. There’s too many conflicting narratives, talking points, and accusations flying around. Over the next two elections, if the Democrats don’t get what they want, they’re going to rage under the guise of replaying some 1960s activist fantasy. And if they win, they’ll only turn the screws tighter on identity politics and demonizing white people.

This is why they’re desperate to ban guns. Everything they want to do relies on force. It is not hyperbole to say that Leftism always leads to mass murder—whether the poster boy is a mustached Bolshevik holding a rifle, or a scrawny Portlander in black-rimmed glasses and striped v-neck t-shirt drinking soy milk.

Today’s totalitarian may not have the balls to kill you himself, but he’ll find an app for that in his brand new iPhone, I’m sure.
