send bananas!

House committee in Louisiana has approved a resolution branding Charles Darwin's theory of evolution as racist.

Similar attempts by various legislative bodies, in assorted states, to ban the teaching of evolution for Biblical reasons have usually failed, but the humanoids in Louisiana were able to get this nonsense through, as mentioned above, by the use of the term "racist."

Now, as you are probably aware, the word "racist" can be used to get just about anything one wants so long as it's aimed at white people.

In fact, one wonders if we'll soon hear the knuckle draggers in Louisiana, saying that the belief that the Earth is round is also racist or that the belief that the Earth isn't the center of the solar system is racist.

Sharon Weston BroomeThe sponsor of the "evolutionary teaching is racist" proposal, was one Rep. Sharon Weston Broome, D-Baton Rouge, who apparently doesn't believe that she has evolved from apes. Others might agree with this assessment. Some wags may even suggest that the type of thinking evidenced by Ms. Broome points to devolution.

Here are the relevant portions of the text of this silly resolution:

WHEREAS, empirical science has documented an indisputable commonality empirical scienceamong all people groups, or races, and has demonstrated that normal variations in the human gene pool account for our differences, of which racial differences are a trivial portion; and

Charles DarwinWHEREAS, the writings of Charles Darwin, the father of evolution, promoted the justification of racism, and his books "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection: of the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life" and "The Descent of Man" postulate a hierarchy of superior and inferior races; and

Ernst Haeckel WHEREAS, Adolf Hitler and others have exploited the racist view of Darwin and those he influenced, such as German zoologist Ernst Haekel, to justify the annihilation of millions of purportedly racially inferior individuals.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of Louisiana does hereby Louisiana Legislaturedeplore all instances and ideologies of racism, does hereby reject the core concepts of Darwinist ideology that certain races and classes of humans are inherently superior to others, and does hereby condemn the extent to which these philosophies have been used to justify and approve racist practices.

Did you ever wonder what it might be like to live in a society that is quickly devolving back to a more primitive state? Welcome to Post-American America, where this Taliban type thinking is increasingly becoming the norm as white people are replaced by non-white people.

Any society that is afraid of ideas isn't going to have many new ones, and is bound to stagnate. This is what we're seeing in Post-American America today, where Voodoo science and PC niceties take over from real science and the unvarnished truth.

Broome said that the passage of her resolution will not make Louisiana a laughingstock.

Of course not. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Stop, you're killing me! Say, why did the legislator from Louisiana cross the road? She doesn't know. She's not evolved enough to figure it out! Ha, ha, ha, ha.

Interestingly, some scientists who spoke against this silly resolution fell right into the trap of trying to defend Darwin's theory, not on the scientific proof, but on the usual "butbutbutbutbut he wasn't a racist" whine, as though whether he was or wasn't a "racist" has anything at all to do with whether his theory is correct or not.

And, what the hell is a "racist," anyway? Those who use this term as a cudgel first define it to mean racial hatred. Then, they shift the meaning to anyone who notices that the races of man are different from each other whether this person has any racial hatred or not. This stifles free thinking and free speech. It harms the human spirit and chains the human mind. It leads to constipated thinking.

However, the larger issue here is not about Darwin or his theory, but about the fact that as our society devolves, we're increasingly seeing attempts to destroy all white people, past, present and future in the name of anti-racism. We're seeing an anti-intellectualism being ushered in that harkens back to the Dark Ages. Some of the first signs of this new Dark Ages are attacks on free thinking and free speech, not only in America, but world wide. Mainly, we're seeing the truth about race being hidden, lest it offend anyone. We're also seeing, as with Ms. Broome's stupid resolution, an attempt to deny the reality of race.

dogs playing pokerBut, this just begs the question; what is race? It is nothing more nor less than what "breed" is to dogs. Would anyone in their right mind deny that there are different breeds of dogs and that the breeds are markedly different from one another? Of course not. Yet,many of these same people will try to deny that there are different breeds of humans even though the differences are obvious and are legion.

All this ignorance is coming in with the false religion of anti-racism. Those who oppose this ignorance and life denying absurdity are battered with the word "racist," in an attempt to shut them up and make them wimp out.

Good, decent people need to start fighting back against these ignorant bigots and resist the forces of darkness in order to keep the light of knowledge and truth burning. Truth is truth, and it is there even if bigots and haters try to deny it.

Maybe, in the future, Louisiana can be rescued from the unevolved. But for now, send bananas.
