The left-wing in the US and in western Europe have preached for generations that it is morally impermissible to distinguish between different individuals or groups. The only group one can be judgmental about, they claim, is white males. And holy God in heaven, there is no way one could discriminate without being guilty of worse sins than that German guy in WW2.
Being judgmental and discriminatory are two necessary and natural human actions. They both are the result of individuals processing information to make important life decisions. Yet, many categorically condemn both actions, no matter the target, no matter the reasoning involved.
Why? I think it’s because both actions threaten conformity of thought and obedience to authority. Being judgmental and discriminatory are antithetical to following the herd. Being judgmental and discriminatory means you are actually thinking, not just following.

We make judgements all the time, but the left wants to pretend that it is evil, homophobic, racist, bigoted, sexists, and all the rest if a white non-liberal does it. I don’t think it is racist to be suspicious of a gang of black teens approaching me. I will reach into my pocket so I am ready to defend myself if needed. On the other hand, I instinctively mistrust a rich white fellow who claims to be trying to help mankind. It used to be a high compliment to tell someone he or she was very ‘discriminating’ but now it is always an accusation. People should learn to be discriminating — and be proud of it.
In other words, we humans build up biases based on our experiences and observations. This is nothing more than the results of four million years of evolution at work. We especially need to be able to recognize the unwritten rules of civilized behavior.
“Rap” is the guttural emanations of soulless, untalented, lower primate, ghetto monkeys and soulless, untalented, tone deaf, white trash. The true abomination of this phenomenon is not its existence, but that it is claimed to be “music” and an “art form,” worthy of consideration and listened to by civilized folk.

The biggest distinction that I make between peoples is their culture. Like the enlightened rogue, I can find nothing of value in “rap” music. But more to the point, the sort of people that listen to that violent noise are judged by me to be uncivilized animals or totally deluded simpletons. Take your pick.
Culture is shared values. I think people who applaud the killing of innocent women and children in countries that the US Empire has invaded are sub-human, low-life cretins. This judgement crosses the boundaries of race, class, and sex but I am sure some American Liberal could call me a vile name for that opinion anyway. But by the same token, I find the culture of the ghetto to be deplorable and animalistic. The inner-city “culture” is bestial, beastly, brutal, brute, brutish, feral, ferine, subhuman, and swinish. I hope that sentence made it clear that I don’t find the inhabitants of most of America’s inner city to be the sort of people I want to be around.
I also don’t care for the “upper crust” that runs the government. They are moral frauds. Fred Reed pointed out that they don’t even know this. “In practice, they approximate George Wallace. Ask when they last went to the ghetto for dinner, whether they have ever been in a restaurant with a majority black clientele, whether they would send their precious children to the public schools of New York. Ask whether they have a blue-collar friend.” I discriminate against the moral frauds of the ruling elite every chance I get. So?
Do I make judgements? Hell yes.Do I discriminate against people I find sub-human? Sure; I try to stay as far away from them as possible. Who really wants to be near the horrific people that the lack of culture breeds in the inner city?
Thomas Sowell once observed that 100 years of slavery could not and did not break the back of the black family — but welfare did. The same family killing effect is being felt by the poor whites also. The state is helping to build horrible people — almost as if that were the goal. The socialist-democratic program in the western world is destroying everything that led to our industrialized culture and society.
I love Bill Buppert and the following is a priceless comment on the idiocy of the socialist hypocrites on the left. California is the epicenter of crazy in the USA and they have recently been hollering that they should succeed from the US. The following is Buppert’s judgement of what would happen:
“If California left tomorrow, they would be a third world shithole in 24 months. They are a Federally subsidized funded debt canary that can’t sustain the pensions they promised and fairy dust welfare state they crafted on the backs of workers and the unborn progeny now mired in debt. If other Sovietized America-stans like the Northeastern hellholes and the Moscow analog in Chicago want to secede, please go, you are doing your neighbors a favor.”

We have many in America that have been ruined and made imbeciles due to their accepting the discredited notion of socialism. The fact that socialism has failed around the world in all time frames is a fact that the American Liberal just can not process. I judge the American Liberal and other welfare-state creeps to be horribly misguided and dangerous. I judge and discriminate all the time. You should also.
In life you must make decisions. These decisions should be made based on your judgement. When you come to a fork in the road, you must pick a path.
