Shark Tank Catches A ‘Racial’ Altercation In Real Time

This video by The Shark Tank catches Yid with Lid and Greg Thrasher

Thrasher posts today, presumably in response:

One of the truths I have learned from my activism in the area of civil rights is the ability to evolve pass[sic] seeking racial parity and equity with the majority society . I now understand that it is critical to evolve beyond a sense of validation and affirmation . My maturation must take me to a place where I elevate my personhood and begin to become an architect to create a life which encompasses more than parity but a higher state of existence. A platform where my quest is no longer limited by parity and equality but an attitude that elevates my personhood. A life full of life…..

Look, we have to be about meritocracy and equality of opportunity. The GOP had a couple dozen black nominees in 2010. We need to ask, when anyone plays the race card, “What are the exit criteria? When has ‘enough’ been done? How can you satisfy me that we haven’t already done ‘enough’, and now we’re over-achieving?”

    Well, not that it matters, but how many Black Americans were or are at CPAC? Consider the percentages. Blacks make up 12.6 % of the population. What percentage of Blacks identify as Conservative? one percent…two percent? There’s your answer.

    I am not sure what that was. Can you explain?

    Did he say that the GOP needs to be more “progressive” there at the end?

    He’s one of those ‘Third Way’ people. He wants to force a compromise with policies that are bad for America and that are hated by conservatives. He’s still stuck in the ‘collective’ mindset.

    Nazism was once promoted as a compromise between pure Marxism and market Capitalism.

    …a higher state of existence.

    Sounds like Greg has made many trips [pun intended] there.

    The video is pretty unintelligible without any context.

    I wasn’t there, but what I got from the video is that Greg Thrasher wanted to know where all the Black people were at CPAC. Evidently Mr. Thrasher doesn’t understand demographics and percentages and I guess people like Allen West don’t count.

    Didn’t Mel Brooks make a speech like that in Blazing Saddles?

    Not really Nazism so much as Mussolini’s “kinder”, “pragmatic” fascism. According to Jonah Goldberg anyway.

    This isn’t complicated, but you have to accept the obvious, while ignoring his (false) premise.

    If Mr. Thrasher really wanted more black participation (as opposed to racial grandstanding) at CPAC he should have brought members of his group who were interested in participating.

    Maybe attend some speeches, ask some questions, read a pamphlet, mingle, etc.

    That was the simplest and best response to his ‘question” – invite him to participate, and ask him if he knows anybody else -black, white, or otherwise – who might like to do so as well.

    LTC West isn’t really black, you know. Or so idiots like Thrasher would have us believe.

    They are all brainwashed to stay on the Liberal Plantation. Their leaders don’t want to lose their political sinecure and fat paychecks …

    This was a planned stunt, right on cue media hacks began tweeting about how “white” CPAC is, led by TNR which, as Ace immediately pointed out, has approximately ZERO minorities on their own staff.

    They were even joking about seeing cowboy hats.

    And Anna Marie Coxucker is there. I keep warning them about holding this too close to DC, no telling what you might catch.

    Sounded like authentic frontier gibberish to me.
