I can’t resist.

Sorry for the big file (for this site, anyway); I had to make sure jpegging didn’t make it unreadable.

This is the document everyone was laughing about yesterday, if you haven’t seen it. I didn’t see the second page of this until today (it starts at Religion). I mean, there are one or two things I could quibble with but, on the whole, this would be my list of Shit You Must Do and Be to Succeed.

The NMAAHC is the National Museum of African American History and Culture, part of the Smithsonian museums. But I’m just going to assume a white supremacist actually wrote it.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

p.s. my on-screen keyboard capitalizes random words without asking me. One of those words is ‘white’. First time I don’t catch that in a tweet, somebody’s going to yell at me.

The NMAAHC has removed the chart, but basically cop to posting it. So it’s not a hoax, if there was ever any doubt.

The hilarious thing is – as you might expect – the really pissed off black people posting about it. Basically, NMAAHC gave whites all the virtues.

Hahaha…if you haven’t seen the trailer for 2020 the Movie, clicky.

Basically, NMAAHC gave whites all the virtues.

This is like the 10 “Suggestions” from Judeo/Christian religion. The social ones are terrible ideas!
Don’t lie, don’t kill, don’t steal, honor your old folks, don’t sleep around, don’t lust after your neighbor’s stuff, especially his wife or his donkey!

Imagine thinking it was a bad idea to not kill people, or not lie, and don’t cheat or steal!

What kind of culture do you get when you run around not trying to murder/cheat and lie your way to the top?

And then imagine trying to base your civilization on those ideas? And continue to try to live by those even when you fall off the wagon in practicing them now and again.

That’s just crazy talk!

(Re – making whitey virtuous… what happened is the morons who thought those were bad things exposed themselves, again, as asshats and whiney children who shouldn’t be allowed to guide anyone to anything, any time)

S. Weasel, what a hoot “2020 the Movie” trailer is…

Two more:
The Swamp a sendup of Attenbourough’s Planet Earth
The Joker – It’s Just a Mask laying down the real deal on Maskholes

This seems like the right moment to toss in a short excerpt from Monty Python’s ‘Life Of Brian”

“What have the Romans ever done for us?“

Just an aside observance but, the flag!? I often see it displayed improperly but for crying out loud it’s the damn Smithsonian!

Surly Ermine – this is what happens when they kill something, skin it, wear the skin, and walk around pretending to be the thing they killed.

Plus the fact you noticed would probably get you branded as white.

@Surly Ermine—The first thing I noticed was the backwards flag! I was shouting at my computer (but I do that a lot lately).

Then for further entertainment, try to get them to understand the English phrase –
“The flag is always posted on it’s own right”.

I read that document approvingly as an expression of traditional American values. It wasn’t till I read the comments that I realised that the NMAAHC assumed that people would be offended by it.
I have just been looking at the very involved U.S. Flag Code. There is no equivalent for the U.K. flag. We can do what we like with it. They even sell Union Jack toilet paper.
The only convention I am aware of is that if the Union Jack (or Union Flag if you prefer) is flown upside down it is a sign of distress. You just have to hope that someone notices that it is upside down.

I’m still trying to figure out what jackweed honestly thought those were objectionable qualities.

It had to be someone with an ounce of sense being sarcastic.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
