And now physical fitness

Quote
The intersection of extremism and fitness leans into a shared obsession with the male body, training, masculinity, testosterone, strength and competition. Physical fitness training, especially in combat sports, appeals to the far right for many reasons: fighters are trained to accept significant physical pain, to be “warriors,” and to embrace messaging around solidarity, heroism, and brotherhood. It’s championed as a tool to help fight the “coming race war” and the street battles that will precede it. Recruits are encouraged to link individual moral virtues such as willpower, decisiveness and courage, with desired collective traits such as virility and manliness. This also works in reverse, with white supremacists encouraging potential recruits or activists to stay in good physical shape as a way of managing self-presentation to the public. The neo-Nazi blogger Andrew Anglin advised his followers that “fat people” should be required to commit to losing weight if they are to stay involved with groups or in-person gatherings, noting that “continued obesity should not be tolerated.”
Quote
Physical fitness has always been central to the far right. In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler fixated on boxing and jujitsu, believing they could help him create an army of millions whose aggressive spirit and impeccably trained bodies, combined with “fanatical love of the fatherland,” would do more for the German nation than any “mediocre” tactical weapons training.

These people have an odd view of what is right and left in politics.  They don't even understand their own side, much less the other side.

Dumb question as I have never read Hitler's book.  When did Far Eastern fighting styles migrate to the West?  I would have said the 50's or 60's, but I don't know.

Funny - I was gonna start another topic with this link, but it looks like it fits just fine here:

https://dailycampus.com/2022/03/22/bmi-is-not-an-accurate-measure-of-health/

BMI is now racist and was designed for white European men.

My complaint with BMI has always been that it stuffs everyone into one box, and will generally, if not favoring lighter framed individuals, will penalize larger framed, muscular individuals. But no, it only favors white European males.  ;/

Earlier than that - my Dad told me during WW2 basic training they had an unarmed combat instructor who was well versed in karate, so that was in the early '40s. (Don't know how they represented it since there was still a prevailing mindset that the Japs were all sneaky nearsighted idiots with buck teeth. Combat changed a lot of minds in a hurry.)
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

According to the BMI they want me to be an emaciated beanpole.

I lost around 25lbs during hospitalization. That put me into the middle of "normal" BMI weight. When a friend came over to visit me she started to cry I looked so emaciated.

Theodore Roosevelt practiced jiu jitsu. And he was not the first one. There was also bartitsu, a mixed martial arts system developed by a  Englishman named  E.W. Barton-Wright, that combined judo, boxing, canne de combat, savate and Swiss wrestling. This was in 1898. But the real popularity began with returning servicemen after WW2, and it really picked up in the 60s and 70s.

I told my wife that since working out is now considered white supremacist behavior, I was going to stop working out every evening in our home gym.  She informed me otherwise.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

FBI, I think I found out who took Hunter's crack pipe.

Think of all the suburban women riding their Paloton and thinking about white power while still being the only group that polls in the positive for Biden.

Making fun of Kamala's outfit

Quote
All of a sudden, the Kamala tweet was being re-framed as racist and dozens of Twitter accounts were bragging about contacting my employers about my “bigotry.”
Quote
They told me that the tweet I sent about Kamala was “racist” and that subsequent follow-ups defending myself and making fun of the efforts to cancel me were unacceptable. I had violated the company’s social media policy, they said, and I was terminated effective immediately.

I didn't see what the joke was. Meanwhile:

Quote
Despite multiple appeals, during which company officials admitted that the perception of racism was more important than whether or not my tweet was actually racist, the company has refused to reverse its decision. Meanwhile, my image and bio is still being used on the WMAL website and social media channels to promote their programming. I am racist enough not to be paid, but not so racist that my likeness cannot be affiliated with the station, apparently.

"conservative" station.

I didn't see what the joke was. Meanwhile:

Quote
About a month ago today, I posted a tweet during the State of the Union address poking fun at Vice President Kamala Harris’s outfit. Harris wore a chocolate brown business suit that was panned on social media — some users compared her to a Hershey’s chocolate bar, while others wondered why she wore the same color as her chair. I went for a UPS joke, featuring the company’s now retired slogan:

“Kamala looks like a UPS employee — what can brown do for you? Nothing good, apparently.”

Popular racial slurs in the 2020s: "don't get the Covid shot," "Hunter Biden's laptop is real, and should make you think twice about  voting for his pops," and "Rachel Levine is our Man of the Year!"

No surprise. Late to the game, but I've been poking around Reddit of late, and their "moderators" don't appear to be any better than the Twitter nitwits.

As an example, I went to the Reddit thread on "Resident Alien" to see if others, like me, were feeling that Season 2 went woke. I read posts from one of their moderators or reditors or whatever they're called boasting / complaining about the work involved banning something like "50 bigots in the past week" who had complained about one of the episodes being over the top woke.

"Free speech" as long as it aligns with the woke jerks that work at Reddit.

I would explain to her that many think that statement is too stupid to be allowed, but because I believe in free speech, I support her right to say it and make an ass of herself.

The word obesity and "weight-based approaches to health.

Quote
A dietitian at the University of Illinois Chicago is pushing for the word “obesity” to be removed from public health discourse.
Quote
Montgomery’s first complaint against the current “weight-based approaches to health” is that focusing on body size is rooted in racism. “Around 81 percent of societies historically have favored people in larger bodies,” she claims, citing research. “Larger bodies signified wealth and prosperity while thinness signified poverty and weakness. However, this began to change due to racism and eugenics
