Book Recommendation: Europe’s Inner Demons, by Norman Cohn

This got me thinking about this.

I know I’m prejudiced, and I know I’m bigoted in a lot of different ways,” Cuban said in an interview shown at the annual GrowCo convention hosted by Inc. magazine, according to The Tennessean.

“If I see a black kid in a hoodie on my side of the street, I’ll move to the other side of the street. If I see a white guy with a shaved head and tattoos (on the side he now is on), I’ll move back to the other side of the street. None of us have pure thoughts; we all live in glass houses.”

Aaaaaaannnnndd the usual suspects all freak out, because Serious You Guys, Mark Cuban just admitted he’s a raaaaacist.

I actually see this as a hopeful sign.  As Norman Cohn’s wonderful book points out, witch hunts don’t happen when things are going well for the ruling power.  When forces beyond their control threaten their position, elites blame forces literally beyond their control — demons and devils, witches and warlocks.  Can anybody with a working brain and an elementary grasp of the English language truly believe Cuban’s comments “advocate racism,” as (perpetually unnamed) “critics” allege?

After six years of Obama, even the dimmest of the fightin’ fightin’ nutroots must be questioning their entire worldview.  Not even the palace guard media’s best efforts can disguise the fact that the USA is basically a banana republic now.  The elite knows this, so cue the frantic heresy hunts.
