Gruntworks Military Humor Op/Ed Safety

Weekend Safety Brief 9 MAR 2018

Good afternoon!

Well, aside from the usual BS with Kim Yum Yum, the sneaky fucking Russians killing old KGB guys and the ongoing Red Herring of “sensible gun control” – it looks like people are insisting that when we point out that our borders are too porous, and our immigration laws should be ENFORCED – we (and the POTUS) are all racist – see link below.

Ummm – Spain is part of Europe.  Spain was the former empire that conquered and ethnically cleansed all of those poor Aztecs and Incas – then laid claim to Mexico (but Americans are the evil land grabbers!).  Mexicans speak Spanish.  Mexicans are (largely) descendants of Spanish Conquistadores.  Likewise, Americans are (largely) descendants of English and other European Colonists (including the Spanish).  How is it racist again?

The last I recall “Hispanic” isn’t a “race” but people descendant from Spanish culture.  Similarly, “Anglo” isn’t a race, but being descendant from English culture.  Are we really splitting hairs like that now – I mean they are all European?  OOOOR are we gonna play Hitler games and physical difference differentiates “races.”

Indeed – I thought that some of you say that “Race” is supposed to be a non-sequitur, since, like dogs are Canis lupis familiaris (notice that even the humble dog has MANY different breeds/species and each has its own qualities, attributes, advantages and disadvantages inherent to the genetic functions of breeding), we are all Homo sapiens sapiens – thus the same genus and species.

Thus, we are all equal at birth, with no differences whatsoever.  Or are we more like the Horses (Equus ferus), Zebras (Subgenus Dolichohippus or Subgenus Hippotigris) , Asses (Equus africanus or Equus hemionus), Kaings (Equus kiang) and several others – not to mention subspecies and hybrids…. See where I am going with this?

It’s either that we are all exactly the same – or we are *many* subspecies, that while able to procreate, are in fact different and unique.  AAND therefore “Race” is a legitimate thing…

(side note – is there such a thing as “Asian Privilege”?  Because if so – I want my math grades in the past adjusted with some math affirmative action [the most degrading “racist” thing I can imagine] because I am a MathTard.)

You can’t have it both ways.

Make up your mind.

Either we are all exactly equal… OR we are distinct races or hybrids with the unique qualities, attributes, advantages, and disadvantages inherent to the genetic functions of breeding.

You can’t have it both ways.

Make up your mind.

Similarly – either males and females are EXACTLY equal in all attributes and should be treated EXACTLY the same in all situations – such as Selective Service, lifting heavy stuff, fixing things around the house, holding doors, paying for dinner dates, etc. – OR they are very different due to evolution and genetics and that should be taken into account.

You can’t be entirely equal – but get preferential treatment because “I’m a LAAADY – I do LAAADY things!” and therefore don’t have to lift heavy shit, kill lions, protect the house and country, fix things around the house, pay for dinner, and hold doors….  see where I am going with this?

You can’t have it both ways.

Make up your mind.

I suggest that you actually CELEBRATE the “diversity” that you so passionately pretend to support.  The fact is that you DO NOT want diversity.  You want equal results based on feeling good instead of performance and aptitude.

You want the terrible domination of the European culture (of course, you will read that as “white”, because your ignorance is astounding – you racist bastard – you automatically exclude the myriad colors of Benetton that are found in the European continent because YOU happen to hate white people.) in science, diplomacy, the arts, and MILITARY MIGHT (yes I went there) to be negated because your self-imposed sense of inferiority doesn’t allow you to buck up and either be awesome – or simply accept that you are only mediocre.

If you could get over yourself – you might see that the European heritage is not just about white men from England – they were just the most successful at the Colonization game….that and their progeny (the hated United States) ended the fading dominance of the Spanish Empire in 1898 – and aside from getting overrun by Fascists in the 1930s and sitting out WWII – your hereditary claim to fame hasn’t amounted to anything except a fake holiday in May and the most delicious food on the planet (yes I LOVE Mexican food).

You can’t have it both ways.

Make up your mind.

Anyway – you fuckers all see each other as brothers anyway, so I am preaching to the choir.

The usual admonitions apply –

Strippers don’t love you.

Dependas only love Tricare.

Roll in Fire Teams.

Don’t start shit – but if it finds you – end it.

Don’t drink and drive.

Have a great weekend – see you bright and early on Monday!

Platoon Sergeants – take charge.
