More later today.
And what wisdom and sage will African “philosophers” be able to offer? How to run around the jungle wearing only a loincloth and worship little wooden idols?
Give me an effen break!
Well, they also wanted philosophers from Asia, so give them that. Let the Speshul Snowflakes experience the Wrath of Khan! After all, the Khans were among the most influential of Asian philosophers…
Khan philosophy, as translated by Ahnold:
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
Famous African philosopher, Altonious Sharptevious said, “Himey will pay, Tawana.”
Africa has contributed little to world advancement, unless you count providing an ever changing war zone for real countries to test combat modalities.
I guess there is that.
This would have been 1969, 1970, somewhere in there.
I was about 12-14, and at my grandparents’ farm near Springfield, MO.
One of the Hope-Crosby “Road To…” movies came on about 9PM.
Except, it wasn’t one of theirs.
It was some sort of soft-porn movie.
I loved it. The newspaper exploded the next day with howls of outrage, and the station put in a new policy to have someone watch each and every movie before it was aired, and not just trust the title.
Isn’t it amazing just how quickly the ‘professional bluenoses’ and other judgmental fundamentalist asshat cockroaches crawl out of the woodwork over something that is essentially harmless in nature…whether they’re time
frozen savages from ‘team ‘mo’ or from ‘team holy roller’.
Mencken was definitely right about fundamentalists of any ilk (he focused on the Christian variety as that is what he had knowledge/experience with..I’m sure that he would have been equally disgusted with the equally life denying moslem savages).
“Puritanism Is the Haunting Fear That Someone, Somewhere, May Be Happy.”
–Henry Louis Mencken
I have no patience or use for such ‘aryans from darian with braces on their brians’ as Rosalind Russell put it so well in ‘Auntie Mame’.

Really enjoyed the 4GW article posted a couple days ago, and even more so the three part article linked at the end of it by frequent WRSA commentator Partyzantski. Here is the link:
At the end of Part III there is a link to his Twitter feed, but when I clicked on it I got this page: https://twitter.com/account/suspended
Just another timely reminder that they will squeeze where ever they can.
Are there any non-white philosophers?
…damn it !….now you have spoiled this for everyone else.
Well of course there are. I mean, you got all of these:
Jesse Jackson Junior
Sheila Jackson Lee
and one must never forget the Chimp in Chief!
After all, Diversity is our Strength!
And All Cultures are Equal…
“Now we’re going to study Western philosophy….oh, wait…is there really any other kind?”

Here’s a parody of those lame Hollywood rants:
