The Future is Now

I’m short on the time required for a thoughtful post, so a glimpse-ful one will have to suffice.

Drudge Report links to a Washington CBS article and video about a mother physically separating her son from rioters in Baltimore, and beating him. Here are some quick quotes from the article.

One Baltimore mother was caught on video dragging out her son who was taking part in the Baltimore riots.

The unnamed mother was shown on television smacking her son — who was dressed all in black — for taking part in the riots against police and businesses Monday afternoon and dragging him away.

[…]

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was asked why she waited hours to ask the governor to declare a state of emergency, while the governor himself hinted she should have come to him earlier.

[…]

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, in her first day on the job, said she would send Justice Department officials to the city in coming days.

[…]

Maj. Gen. Linda Singh, adjutant general of the Maryland National Guard, said up to 5,000 troops would be available for Baltimore’s streets.

[…]

I think the question has been answered.

What? Sorry; yes, I quite understand. The question was: Can we promote enough women to leadership roles so that fathers become superfluous, or so that women can finally wield the requisite power to bring order our “free” society? And the answer was: No.

Some additional thoughts.

Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake initially presumed that the right response was to ignore the children running wild. Now she’s put them on a time-out curfew.

I described the mother as beating her son; which is true. Please note that I don’t have a problem with parents beating children who riot. In contrast: The media and civil authorities would be outraged if there were video of the young man’s father whooping his son’s ass up and down the street; punching him in the face, jerking him around by the hoodie, and pushing him back home. I imagine that cops would take time out fighting for their lives to arrest such a father.

  1. To the extent other police chiefs and mayors have been similarly ineffective without being female, it seems to be because the governing philosophy of the liberal set is similar/identical to that of an unrealistic woman (as distinguished from a reasonable woman leader, such as Condi Rice, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, Margaret Thatcher, etc.).

  2. @David J.

    (as distinguished from a reasonable woman leader, such as Condi Rice, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, Margaret Thatcher, etc.).

    With the possible exception of Margaret Thatcher, I don’t think the benefit of leadership by a reasonable woman outweighs the detriments of setting or confirming the precedent of female leadership.

    I was always against the Dems (due to both natural and nurtural forces), but Barack Hussein Obama’s candidacy caused me to lose interest in Democrat talking points. Sarah Palin’s candidacy caused me to lose interest in political officials altogether.

  3. Not necessarily arguing in favor of leadership by reasonable/realistic women (unless for some reason they are the only alternative to non-exceptional women or liberal men); merely acknowledging that there would be some exceptions (among women) to the blanket statement that the governing philosophy of the liberal set is similar/identical to that of any or all women.

  4. I’d include Golda Meir in the list of exceptional female leaders, but then, existential threats tend to force people to produce a certain kind of person.

    You made a very good point that I didn’t at first consider. My first thought when I saw that mom beating her son was, “where’s dad? That’s a father’s job!” My next thought was that dad probably wasn’t present for the reasons that you and Dalrock have been discussing recently.

    It didn’t occur to me at first that if they’d filmed dad beating the crap out of his delinquent son (as he damned well should), dad would’ve probably ended up in prison. Which is yet another example of how government has replaced fathers.

    Over 70% of black kids grow up without a dad, which means that boy likely grew up without a dad. And because he grew up without a dad, he’s well on his way to becoming Big Daddy Government’s responsibility as an adult.

    I present the cause of Baltimore’s woes.

  5. With the possible exception of Margaret Thatcher, I don’t think the benefit of leadership by a reasonable woman outweighs the detriments of setting or confirming the precedent of female leadership.

    “Arguable” is right. I want to like her, but she condoned the slaughter of the unborn.

  7. “…I imagine that cops would take time out fighting for their lives to arrest such a father.”

    Right. If you’re a man nowadays, you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.
    And that doesn’t only apply to being a responsible father; it also applies to approaching attractive women you don’t know, interacting with them, and/or (God help you) marrying them.
    Which is why more men are avoiding Western women, relationships, marriage, and fatherhood, and GTOW instead.

    Let it burn.
