From the New York Times:

Kehinde Wiley’s Times Square Monument: That’s No Robert E. Lee


The sculpture, of an African-American man in streetwear and mounted on a horse, was unveiled Friday and will eventually move to Richmond, Va., home to a number of Confederate memorials. … The figure astride the horse has dreadlocks, a hoodie and ripped jeans.

Kehinde Wiley is the gay African-American contractor who got the commission to do the official Barack Obama portrait as Homer Simpson receding into the hedge and somehow had his Chinese outsourcers paint Obama with six fingers.

Why does NYC not have a 70′ tall statue of the King of Wakanda? Is NYC racist?

  1. Get it made in China, from 1/8″ thinner and bronze-plated steel instead of bronze, and maybe it’ll corrode and then rust out down in Richmond. I hope so. I’d be pretty offended.

    They are really pushing people, aren’t they? Do they want a civil war?

    No. They want our unconditional surrender without any war at all. The question is only whether they will miscalculate. Impeaching Trump, for example, would be a lawless act in the opinion of many Americans and might precipitate a true crisis, but they seem oblivious to the implications.

    Do they want a civil war?
     
    I cannot imagine that they think they do. But I am pretty sure that this is the path to a civil war. Think about Corvinus; it is hard to see how this stops short of a hot civil war.
  2. I just came here after doing a Google search for ” Immanuel Christian School” to see what was happening with that girl with dreadlocks who said three white boys held her down and cut off her dreads. There’s been nothing for two days except from black Outlets. I’m very curious. The news is strangely silent about this clearly true and horrendous hate crime committed by inherently Wicked white boys

    News broke about an hour ago that she lied (shocking).

    A 12-year-old African American girl who accused three sixth-grade white boys of pinning her down and cutting her dreadlocks has admitted to school officials she was not attacked and cut her own hair. The girl’s family has issued a statement of apology.

  3. “Rumors of War,” Wiley’s largest work to date, mimics the equestrian portraiture of Confederate statues such as that of Gen. James Ewell Brown “Jeb” Stuart in Richmond, Virginia, according to a statement from the Times Square Alliance, a nonprofit organization that promotes Times Square.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/28/us/rumors-of-war-in-ts/index.html

    The confederate statues were mocked by northerners from the start. Lil’Abner’s backward Kentucky village of Dogpatch had an equestrian statue dedicated to Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone.

    Dogpatch, being so backward, is presumably supposed to be in the mountains, where support for the Union was highest.

    Ahhh, good ole Li'l Abner, written by good ole native Kentuckian Al Capp (aka Alfred Caplin). Oh wait, he wasn't from Kentucky, but Connecticut. But he was happy to "punch up" against the rich, powerful residents of Appalachia.

    His story is more interesting than just writing a comic mocking poor gentiles in backwoods Kentucky. He also, at the age of 55, exposed himself to a 19-year-old Goldie Hawn, and told her to marry a Jewish dentist. He also tried to force Grace Kelly to have sex with him and exposed himself to four unfortunate coeds at the University of Alabama.

    A classy guy, that Al Capp was.

    Oh, c’mon! It’s one thing to show how diverse-minded NYers are by sending a statue of a black man down to the capital of the old South. It’s quite another to leave a big ugly Negro right in the middle of Times Square. There are tourist dollars at stake … sigh…

  5. One thing (among many) that I find interesting about this silliness is: the statues of the Confederate generals whom this guy is intended to confront, are all statues of real people who really lived, and who really did a bunch of brave military things, and really did do them on horseback.

    Negro sees respected white men get statues. Negro concludes that having statue means getting respect. The end.
  6. Reconstruction certainly was about pillaging during ‘peace.’ But even more so it was about Good Whites proving to Bad Whites that the Good Whites had such godlike power that they could elevate the Negro to demi-godlike Numinous Negro status above the white trash, which is all whites not actively serving the interests of the WASP Elite.

    All these statue removals and new statues are central to the new Reconstruction. I expect them to get worse. We are not even near the end of the ‘Stalinist’ phase of our Cultural Marxist nightmare.

    Shaka’s reign coincided with the start of the Mfecane (“Upheaval” or “The Crushing”), a period of widespread destruction and warfare in southern Africa between 1815 and about 1840 that depopulated the region. His role in the Mfecane is highly controversial.

    Someone needs to tell those fictional migrants you are not supposed to stand up in a boat. If our ancestors were that dumb they never would have made it to America.

    If there is a "Woke Style" of sculpture, it seems to consist of counter-factual representations like these 100 brave immigrants standing up in a preposterously un-seaworthy skiff as they head for certain doom on the open ocean. These images are supposed to invoke woke ideals. But mostly they symbolize how Wokeism is magical thinking disconnected from reality.

    The epitome of the style was probably "Fearless Girl" defiantly facing down a charging bull. According to the magical thinking it shows an empowered female. In the real world, the little girl is arrogantly overestimating her abilities and is about to be crushed to death as a result of her hubris.

    Why not just do a statue for Shaka Zulu? He was a real genocidal conqueror worthy of the Bronze Age. As Wikipedia states:

    Shaka's reign coincided with the start of the Mfecane ("Upheaval" or "The Crushing"), a period of widespread destruction and warfare in southern Africa between 1815 and about 1840 that depopulated the region. His role in the Mfecane is highly controversial.

  41. If a white sculptor dared produce such a statue, it would immediately be condemned as racist:

    — for depicting the worst example of black manhood (a no-account “street” guy) rather than a civil rights leader or a scientist or athlete.

    — for insiduously alluding to the mounted policemen in “Planet of the Apes”.

    I see a huge problem with a bronze statue of a contemporary black man in that the hairstyles change so frequently and so radically.A fellow who wears his hair like this might look the fool to blacks in five years. Granted, the style may come around again in another 25 years, like the giant Afro, but that’s quite a wait. I suggest the top of the head be removable so the hair can be replaced with a version that is in style at that time. Otherwise, in a few years blacks may consider this depiction racist.

    That’s a good point. Then again, his “hairstyle” will eventually be pidgeon droppings.

    Reconstruction certainly was about pillaging during 'peace.' But even more so it was about Good Whites proving to Bad Whites that the Good Whites had such godlike power that they could elevate the Negro to demi-godlike Numinous Negro status above the white trash, which is all whites not actively serving the interests of the WASP Elite.

    All these statue removals and new statues are central to the new Reconstruction. I expect them to get worse. We are not even near the end of the 'Stalinist' phase of our Cultural Marxist nightmare.

    which is all whites not actively serving the interests of the WASP Elite.

    The numinous Nrgroes are only here because of another WASP élite — the one whose interests were served by the figures being torn down. You seriously don’t think they bought their own tickets here? What, with shells?

  52. OT: The nervous breakdown in Hollywood continues. Netflix has released ‘In the Shadow of the Moon’ which follows a shaven-headed mixed race women in a hoodie who travels back in time to brutally kill the deplorable white nationalists who started the American civil war. Seems like a cross between Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Django Unchained.

    I find the amount of gore depicted from the victims, particularly the blonde woman interesting.

    Synopsis.

    In 1988, several people simultaneously hemorrage to death in Philadelphia. Police officer Thomas Lockhart believes the case to be his ticket to becoming a detective, though his partner, Maddox, is less enthusiastic. Lockhart’s brother-in-law, Detective Holt, initially dismisses Lockhart’s observations but eventually admits the deaths are connected when Lockhart finds similar wounds on each victim. Lockhart and Maddox find an assault victim with similar wounds; before suddenly dying, she describes her assailant as a twenty-something African American woman with a wounded hand. After Holt organizes a citywide manhunt, Lockhart and Maddox chase the suspect into a subway, where she subdues Maddox. When Lockhart confronts her, the suspect reveals details about his life, including that his wife will give birth that day. She predicts her own death just prior to a struggle ends with a train hitting her. Although confused about the many unexplained details, the police close the case. Meanwhile, Lockhart’s wife dies in childbirth.

    Nine years later, amid protests against police brutality on the anniversary of the suspect’s death, an apparent copycat begins another killing spree. Lockhart, now a detective, can find no apparent motive or connection between the victims. He urges the department to keep the reopened investigation quiet to minimize racial tensions. Riots break out when Holt publicizes surveillance footage of the copycat and promises a full investigation. Lockhart traces keys retrieved in 1988 to an aircraft manufactured in 1996. Naveen Rao, a physicist, insists this is proof of time travel, but Maddox and Lockhart ignore him. After tracking the copycat to an airfield, Lockhart is shocked to find the same suspect from 1988, who is alive and has not aged. She unintentionally kills Maddox and takes Lockhart hostage, again revealing knowledge about his life she could not know. After warning him off, she disappears.

    In 2006, Lockhart is a private investigator obsessed with solving the case, which he now believes involves time travel. His teenage daughter lives with Holt, and Lockhart maintains only occasional contact with her. A recent breakthrough leads him to believe the victims are connected through involvement in political extremism. Holt dismisses his theories and insists he get psychiatric help. Lockhart steals Holt’s badge, uses it to impersonate a police officer, and tracks down a victim’s wife. She reveals that her husband ran a white nationalist militia group. Lockhart finds the suspect has returned again, killing the remaining members of the group. While chasing her, he wounds her hand before she disappears in a time machine. Holt arrests Lockhart.

    Rao, who disappeared for years, resurfaces in 2015, determined to stop Lockhart from interrupting the woman’s next killing spree. Rao, who now believes the woman’s cause to be justified, says that one could avert major tragedies by killing enough people in the past. Lockhart escapes from Rao and confronts the woman, who reveals herself as Rya, his estranged daughter’s child from an interracial marriage. In the future, Lockhart convinced Rya to take the mission after the militia group’s terrorism triggered a new civil war. Rya is traveling backwards in time, appearing every nine years in reverse chronological order. From her perspective, the events in 1988 have yet to occur, and her hand is not yet wounded. Overcome with guilt over causing his own granddaughter’s death, Lockhart reveals to her the events that unfold in 1988. Convinced that her cause is just, he lets her complete the killings. Lockhart reunites with his family, and the civil war is averted.

    "Rumors of War," Wiley's largest work to date, mimics the equestrian portraiture of Confederate statues such as that of Gen. James Ewell Brown "Jeb" Stuart in Richmond, Virginia, according to a statement from the Times Square Alliance, a nonprofit organization that promotes Times Square.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/28/us/rumors-of-war-in-ts/index.html

    The confederate statues were mocked by northerners from the start. Lil'Abner's backward Kentucky village of Dogpatch had an equestrian statue dedicated to Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone.

    https://harrisondaily.com/icon-gone---general-jubilation-t-cornpone-of-dogpatch/article_e44ce6c8-6108-5f60-8f87-6bec3d70b178.html

    Wiley's statue has a great name at least.

    Lil’Abner’s backward Kentucky village of Dogpatch had an equestrian statue dedicated to Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone.

    Which is really kind of odd. Something like 75% of Kentuckians who fought in the War were on the Union side.

    Dogpatch, being so backward, is presumably supposed to be in the mountains, where support for the Union was highest.

    In fairness to Al Capp he stopped referring to Dogpatch Ky.

    Early in the continuity Capp a few times referred to Dogpatch being in Kentucky, but he was careful afterwards to keep its location generic, probably to avoid cancellations from offended Kentucky newspapers. From then on, he referred to it as Dogpatch, USA, and did not give any specific location as to exactly where it was supposed to be located. Humorously enough, many states tried to claim ownership to the little town (Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, etc.)

    You know, there's a lot of talk about what an appropriate punishment for a hate hoaxer should be, and I think you're on to something. The punishment is that the accused gets to do exactly what he was falsely accused of having done.

    I find the amount of gore depicted from the victims, particularly the blonde woman interesting.

    Synopsis.

    In 1988, several people simultaneously hemorrage to death in Philadelphia. Police officer Thomas Lockhart believes the case to be his ticket to becoming a detective, though his partner, Maddox, is less enthusiastic. Lockhart's brother-in-law, Detective Holt, initially dismisses Lockhart's observations but eventually admits the deaths are connected when Lockhart finds similar wounds on each victim. Lockhart and Maddox find an assault victim with similar wounds; before suddenly dying, she describes her assailant as a twenty-something African American woman with a wounded hand. After Holt organizes a citywide manhunt, Lockhart and Maddox chase the suspect into a subway, where she subdues Maddox. When Lockhart confronts her, the suspect reveals details about his life, including that his wife will give birth that day. She predicts her own death just prior to a struggle ends with a train hitting her. Although confused about the many unexplained details, the police close the case. Meanwhile, Lockhart's wife dies in childbirth.

    Nine years later, amid protests against police brutality on the anniversary of the suspect's death, an apparent copycat begins another killing spree. Lockhart, now a detective, can find no apparent motive or connection between the victims. He urges the department to keep the reopened investigation quiet to minimize racial tensions. Riots break out when Holt publicizes surveillance footage of the copycat and promises a full investigation. Lockhart traces keys retrieved in 1988 to an aircraft manufactured in 1996. Naveen Rao, a physicist, insists this is proof of time travel, but Maddox and Lockhart ignore him. After tracking the copycat to an airfield, Lockhart is shocked to find the same suspect from 1988, who is alive and has not aged. She unintentionally kills Maddox and takes Lockhart hostage, again revealing knowledge about his life she could not know. After warning him off, she disappears.

    In 2006, Lockhart is a private investigator obsessed with solving the case, which he now believes involves time travel. His teenage daughter lives with Holt, and Lockhart maintains only occasional contact with her. A recent breakthrough leads him to believe the victims are connected through involvement in political extremism. Holt dismisses his theories and insists he get psychiatric help. Lockhart steals Holt's badge, uses it to impersonate a police officer, and tracks down a victim's wife. She reveals that her husband ran a white nationalist militia group. Lockhart finds the suspect has returned again, killing the remaining members of the group. While chasing her, he wounds her hand before she disappears in a time machine. Holt arrests Lockhart.

    Rao, who disappeared for years, resurfaces in 2015, determined to stop Lockhart from interrupting the woman's next killing spree. Rao, who now believes the woman's cause to be justified, says that one could avert major tragedies by killing enough people in the past. Lockhart escapes from Rao and confronts the woman, who reveals herself as Rya, his estranged daughter's child from an interracial marriage. In the future, Lockhart convinced Rya to take the mission after the militia group's terrorism triggered a new civil war. Rya is traveling backwards in time, appearing every nine years in reverse chronological order. From her perspective, the events in 1988 have yet to occur, and her hand is not yet wounded. Overcome with guilt over causing his own granddaughter's death, Lockhart reveals to her the events that unfold in 1988. Convinced that her cause is just, he lets her complete the killings. Lockhart reunites with his family, and the civil war is averted.

    I find the amount of gore depicted from the victims, particularly the blonde woman interesting.

    Synopsis.

    In 1988, several people simultaneously hemorrage to death in Philadelphia. Police officer Thomas Lockhart believes the case to be his ticket to becoming a detective, though his partner, Maddox, is less enthusiastic. Lockhart's brother-in-law, Detective Holt, initially dismisses Lockhart's observations but eventually admits the deaths are connected when Lockhart finds similar wounds on each victim. Lockhart and Maddox find an assault victim with similar wounds; before suddenly dying, she describes her assailant as a twenty-something African American woman with a wounded hand. After Holt organizes a citywide manhunt, Lockhart and Maddox chase the suspect into a subway, where she subdues Maddox. When Lockhart confronts her, the suspect reveals details about his life, including that his wife will give birth that day. She predicts her own death just prior to a struggle ends with a train hitting her. Although confused about the many unexplained details, the police close the case. Meanwhile, Lockhart's wife dies in childbirth.

    Nine years later, amid protests against police brutality on the anniversary of the suspect's death, an apparent copycat begins another killing spree. Lockhart, now a detective, can find no apparent motive or connection between the victims. He urges the department to keep the reopened investigation quiet to minimize racial tensions. Riots break out when Holt publicizes surveillance footage of the copycat and promises a full investigation. Lockhart traces keys retrieved in 1988 to an aircraft manufactured in 1996. Naveen Rao, a physicist, insists this is proof of time travel, but Maddox and Lockhart ignore him. After tracking the copycat to an airfield, Lockhart is shocked to find the same suspect from 1988, who is alive and has not aged. She unintentionally kills Maddox and takes Lockhart hostage, again revealing knowledge about his life she could not know. After warning him off, she disappears.

    In 2006, Lockhart is a private investigator obsessed with solving the case, which he now believes involves time travel. His teenage daughter lives with Holt, and Lockhart maintains only occasional contact with her. A recent breakthrough leads him to believe the victims are connected through involvement in political extremism. Holt dismisses his theories and insists he get psychiatric help. Lockhart steals Holt's badge, uses it to impersonate a police officer, and tracks down a victim's wife. She reveals that her husband ran a white nationalist militia group. Lockhart finds the suspect has returned again, killing the remaining members of the group. While chasing her, he wounds her hand before she disappears in a time machine. Holt arrests Lockhart.

    Rao, who disappeared for years, resurfaces in 2015, determined to stop Lockhart from interrupting the woman's next killing spree. Rao, who now believes the woman's cause to be justified, says that one could avert major tragedies by killing enough people in the past. Lockhart escapes from Rao and confronts the woman, who reveals herself as Rya, his estranged daughter's child from an interracial marriage. In the future, Lockhart convinced Rya to take the mission after the militia group's terrorism triggered a new civil war. Rya is traveling backwards in time, appearing every nine years in reverse chronological order. From her perspective, the events in 1988 have yet to occur, and her hand is not yet wounded. Overcome with guilt over causing his own granddaughter's death, Lockhart reveals to her the events that unfold in 1988. Convinced that her cause is just, he lets her complete the killings. Lockhart reunites with his family, and the civil war is averted.

     

    [[[Power fantasies intensify]]]

    So who builds the time machine?

    Convinced that her cause is just, he lets her complete the killings. Lockhart reunites with his family, and the civil war is averted.

    THE END

    Sadly, she also manages to kill the father of the one guy who averts a major epidemic in 2025. 266 million people die, including Lockhart and his family.

    THE REAL END!

    Lil’Abner’s backward Kentucky village of Dogpatch had an equestrian statue dedicated to Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone.

    Which is really kind of odd. Something like 75% of Kentuckians who fought in the War were on the Union side.

    Dogpatch, being so backward, is presumably supposed to be in the mountains, where support for the Union was highest.

    In fairness to Al Capp he stopped referring to Dogpatch Ky.

    Early in the continuity Capp a few times referred to Dogpatch being in Kentucky, but he was careful afterwards to keep its location generic, probably to avoid cancellations from offended Kentucky newspapers. From then on, he referred to it as Dogpatch, USA, and did not give any specific location as to exactly where it was supposed to be located. Humorously enough, many states tried to claim ownership to the little town (Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, etc.)

    Someone needs to tell those fictional migrants you are not supposed to stand up in a boat. If our ancestors were that dumb they never would have made it to America.

    If there is a "Woke Style" of sculpture, it seems to consist of counter-factual representations like these 100 brave immigrants standing up in a preposterously un-seaworthy skiff as they head for certain doom on the open ocean. These images are supposed to invoke woke ideals. But mostly they symbolize how Wokeism is magical thinking disconnected from reality.

    The epitome of the style was probably "Fearless Girl" defiantly facing down a charging bull. According to the magical thinking it shows an empowered female. In the real world, the little girl is arrogantly overestimating her abilities and is about to be crushed to death as a result of her hubris.

Granted, the style may come around again in another 25 years, like the giant Afro, but that’s quite a wait. I suggest the top of the head be removable so the hair can be replaced with a version that is in style at that time. Otherwise, in a few years blacks may consider this depiction racist.

Lockhart, now a detective, can find no apparent motive or connection between the victims. He urges the department to keep the reopened investigation quiet to minimize racial tensions. Riots break out when Holt publicizes surveillance footage of the copycat and promises a full investigation. Lockhart traces keys retrieved in 1988 to an aircraft manufactured in 1996. Naveen Rao, a physicist, insists this is proof of time travel, but Maddox and Lockhart ignore him. After tracking the copycat to an airfield, Lockhart is shocked to find the same suspect from 1988, who is alive and has not aged. She unintentionally kills Maddox and takes Lockhart hostage, again revealing knowledge about his life she could not know. After warning him off, she disappears.

    In 2006, Lockhart is a private investigator obsessed with solving the case, which he now believes involves time travel. His teenage daughter lives with Holt, and Lockhart maintains only occasional contact with her. A recent breakthrough leads him to believe the victims are connected through involvement in political extremism. Holt dismisses his theories and insists he get psychiatric help. Lockhart steals Holt's badge, uses it to impersonate a police officer, and tracks down a victim's wife. She reveals that her husband ran a white nationalist militia group. Lockhart finds the suspect has returned again, killing the remaining members of the group. While chasing her, he wounds her hand before she disappears in a time machine. Holt arrests Lockhart.

    Rao, who disappeared for years, resurfaces in 2015, determined to stop Lockhart from interrupting the woman's next killing spree. Rao, who now believes the woman's cause to be justified, says that one could avert major tragedies by killing enough people in the past. Lockhart escapes from Rao and confronts the woman, who reveals herself as Rya, his estranged daughter's child from an interracial marriage. In the future, Lockhart convinced Rya to take the mission after the militia group's terrorism triggered a new civil war. Rya is traveling backwards in time, appearing every nine years in reverse chronological order. From her perspective, the events in 1988 have yet to occur, and her hand is not yet wounded. Overcome with guilt over causing his own granddaughter's death, Lockhart reveals to her the events that unfold in 1988. Convinced that her cause is just, he lets her complete the killings. Lockhart reunites with his family, and the civil war is averted.

     

    Can’t she go to back to 1619 and prevent all this from happening at all?

    Are you kidding? It’s right there in the Iliad:

    "Similarly to Stuart in his statue, the young man is also looking back over his shoulder. "

    The "young man" has visible pointy boobs.

    Feature, not bug. For real.

    Why not have a statue of this strangely disturbing character from the Progressive Insurance commercials:

    He's a "Motaur"

    About as realistic as Wiley's equestrian street fascist

    I’ve seen black motorcycle clubs roar past, in Chicago and in L.A.

    Philadelphia blacks are into some kind of ATV that they can do wheelies on in the streets.

    One thing (among many) that I find interesting about this silliness is: the statues of the Confederate generals whom this guy is intended to confront, are all statues of real people who really lived, and who really did a bunch of brave military things, and really did do them on horseback.

    This guy is Nameless Abstract Negro who did... what, exactly?

    Cargo Cult.

    Negro sees respected white men get statues. Negro concludes that having statue means getting respect. The end.

    I always thought the Fearless Girl has figured out that the bull is just a statue and this is a clever meta-artwork. Sort of like Escher’s “Dragon”.

    Wall Street might as well be turned into a tourist theme park. The floor of the NY Stock Exchange is now mostly depopulated, the trading having migrated to computers housed elsewhere.

    That’s standard bedspread fabric. The red and gray is nice. Matching curtains, palest gray walls.

    It would also make a nice skirt. Long and full with a red top.

    I could see HRC wearing it, if she could find about three more yards of fabric.

    "Rumors of War," Wiley's largest work to date, mimics the equestrian portraiture of Confederate statues such as that of Gen. James Ewell Brown "Jeb" Stuart in Richmond, Virginia, according to a statement from the Times Square Alliance, a nonprofit organization that promotes Times Square.

    The confederate statues were mocked by northerners from the start. Lil'Abner's backward Kentucky village of Dogpatch had an equestrian statue dedicated to Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone.

    Wiley's statue has a great name at least.

    Ahhh, good ole Li’l Abner, written by good ole native Kentuckian Al Capp (aka Alfred Caplin). Oh wait, he wasn’t from Kentucky, but Connecticut. But he was happy to “punch up” against the rich, powerful residents of Appalachia.

    His story is more interesting than just writing a comic mocking poor gentiles in backwoods Kentucky. He also, at the age of 55, exposed himself to a 19-year-old Goldie Hawn, and told her to marry a Jewish dentist. He also tried to force Grace Kelly to have sex with him and exposed himself to four unfortunate coeds at the University of Alabama.

    A classy guy, that Al Capp was.

    Al Capp wasn't all bad. He had turned into somewhat of a conservative in his later life. His exposure by Drew Pearson demonstrated that at that time he was in liberaldom's bad graces!

    Someone needs to tell those fictional migrants you are not supposed to stand up in a boat. If our ancestors were that dumb they never would have made it to America.

    If there is a "Woke Style" of sculpture, it seems to consist of counter-factual representations like these 100 brave immigrants standing up in a preposterously un-seaworthy skiff as they head for certain doom on the open ocean. These images are supposed to invoke woke ideals. But mostly they symbolize how Wokeism is magical thinking disconnected from reality.

    The epitome of the style was probably "Fearless Girl" defiantly facing down a charging bull. According to the magical thinking it shows an empowered female. In the real world, the little girl is arrogantly overestimating her abilities and is about to be crushed to death as a result of her hubris.

    Is that a boat? It looks more like a very strange pier.

  146. Is that a boat? It looks more like a very strange pier.

    I followed the link and apparently it is a collection of time-traveling boaters.

    The work, “Angels Unaware,” by the Canadian artist Timothy P. Schmalz, depicts 140 migrants and refugees from various historical periods traveling on a boat, and includes indigenous people, the Virgin Mary and Joseph, Jews fleeing Nazi Germany and those from war-torn countries.

    Here’s some historical migrants that got left out of the woke boat.
