During an appearance on Canadian radio show Monday, a Barnard College English instructor discussed with a Jewish host a passage from his new book about how he would gas white people in a locked room “when the race war hits its crescendo.”
Ben Philippe, who teaches English and film studies at Barnard, appeared on the CBC show “q,” to talk about his book “Sure, I’ll be your Black Friend,” the College Fix reported.
The host, Talia Schlanger, read the following passage from the tome in which he describes what he would do if there was a “race war.”
When this race war hits its crescendo, I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity. I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, white health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.
Philippe told Schlanger that his original text was much longer, and thanked his editor for “condensing it.”
“It was ultimately just trying to take the state of the world to its logical conclusion if we all have to exist in this common land together, and we can’t get along and we can’t feel and we can’t try to understand each other,” he explained.
“If it’s always going to be us verses them … then— you know— I guess I was wrestling with the question that, isn’t the end result of that, all-out warfare? Like, ‘Game of Thrones’-style warfare? and what does that look like? And I lived in that sort of stray thought for a few pages,” Philippe continued, adding that the words were “disturbing to write, too because I’m not a violent person, I love all my white friends.”
Schlanger informed her guest that, as a Jewish person whose “grandparents survived the Holocaust,” she found the passage “shocking and disturbing.”
“I can’t tell you how it felt to read that sentiment,” she told him.
Incredibly however, Schlanger went on to apologize to Philippe: “I wanted to say to you that I’m so sorry that your experience of the world made you feel that way, and made you feel compelled to write that,” she said.
DTG’s 2021 Updated 10 Week (If You’re Lucky) Plan to Prepare for the Worst-Case Scenario It’s been about 13 or 14 years since I wrote this under my since retired ‘nom de guerre’, and commenting on a blog post recently, CA at Western Rifle Shooter’s Association asked me if I’d mind updating it. This is a good base plan for folks you might know just waking up to the fact that things are spinning faster in the vortex than ever before, and this might be the best chance for them to get themselves in gear. Feel free to add or take away as your situation and local area conditions may require. Understand something, though: You have a VERY small window; it may even be too late should something happen that accerlerates the current environment like a JATO (Jet Assisted Take Off) rocket on a C130. So, if you’re just getting started, you need to act now, as in today. Not next week. Not in two weeks. You may not HAVE two weeks. You may be thinking,
Just as Samson was seduced by Delilah, so can you be seduced by the internal desire you have to one degree or another to have all the latest, greatest, coolest, most technically advanced, and 'tacticool' weapons, gear, and associated support equipment available, which, by necessity, will set you back many, many thousands of dollars, usually. When sporty times come, the first thing you'll need to be able to do is actually use what you have. The you have to be able to carry it all. I mention this Nevada a great many, "gear-a-holics" are not in the best shape. Remember a good rule of thumb: All your gear, including weapons, ammo, equipment (all types), food and water shouldn't weigh more than about 65 or 70 pounds. Then, if you're planning on being mobile, you should be ruckingin all sorts of weather over varying distances at a pace of no less than 3 miles an hour over relatively flat and clear routes. But, if you've been collecting gear, I u
First, I forget where I got this graphic; it's been a long while. It's good though, for this post's purposes. For the uninitiated, or new prepper, protector, defender, NPT member, etc (whatever your group calls the new guys), 'CNS' stands for 'Central Nervous System'. There are three ways to achieve instant incapacitation with a firearm against an attacker: Shoot them in one of the 3 places as outlined above. Other descriptions of the targets (and very effective if a bad actor is shot there) are: FRONT: The Occular Cavity SIDE: The Temple (just a smidge toward the top of the ear) REAR: Medula Oblongata (where the brain stem resides at the top of the spine where the brain joins the spinal column. A shot in any of these three locatations brings about catastropic INSTANT failure of all systems in the body. Put another way: "Instant Rag Doll." There's no last chance to pull a trigger, say 'good bye,' "I'm sorry," or
