The Watcher’s Council

Rachel Donezal represents, philosophically, the ultimate in racism. After unsuccessfully suing Howard University, a black college, for discriminating against her because she was white, she had a moment of inspiration… if being a white ‘victim’ for her own profit and ego stroking didn’t work out so well, why not totally go over and join what she saw as a successful grievance class? In fact, why not make a career out of it? So, that’s exactly what she did, not only showing her own psychotic self-hatred, but her contempt and what amounted to the bigotry of low expectations towards the very group of people she claimed to be part of and ‘representing’ as a professional grievance monger.

Her only problem, as with most pathological liars who get caught, is that she believed her own lies so completely that she took things too far. She went public with bizarre tales of racist harassment and her own parents outed her.

If you’re interested, here’s Rachel Donezal in Baltimore, whipping up the mob to do some more looting and burning. In Baltimore, blacks whose businesses were burnt down, who lost jobs or who now have to travel miles for a pharmacy or a grocery store and who now suffer from a sharply increased crime rate, might have something to say about her ‘representation.’

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

Don Surber was cited Monday at Ace Of Spades HQ as a Quote of the Day:

So it goes with healthy foods. In the food-stamp heavy districts of urban America, stores carry potato chips and tons of other ready-to-eat foods, but no actual potatoes, carrots, or green leafy substances that are not smoked.

That is because stores are not museums. They stock the things people buy. Food stamp recipients buy junk food over healthy food. — Don Surber on ‘Food Deserts’

Today marks the debut of Puma By Design as a Council member. We’re pretty impressed with her and I’m sure you will be too!

This week, The Pirate’s Cove, Anne’s Opinions, Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion and Blazing Cat Fur earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an email address (mandatory, but of course it won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on Wednesday morning.

Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have for you this week…

Enjoy! And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter… ’cause we’re cool like that! And don’t forget to tune in Friday for the results!

  1. A small complaint. I have repeatedly noticed a glaring error in grammar in this site. “Who” vs. “whom.” See, for example, the paragraph on “Rachel Donezal in Baltimore.” “Who” is subjective, as in the “subject” of a verb. “Whom” is the objective case of the pronoun, i.e., the object of a verb.

    The posts on this blog are so good that it is correspondingly very annoying to see such a grammatical error over and over again.

  2. Hi! I clean up the post before putting here and just left that as a style quirk. Will fix now and thanks for the input!
