Bill Maher and Alexandra Pelosi not racists; Feudal lord and Lady.

Arthur A’Bland: Don’t for­get that you’re a free man, no mat­ter how poor we are you’re free and no one can make you do any­thing that mean or servile, or wrong!

The Adven­tures of Robin Hood: Chil­dren of the Green­wood 1956

Peo­ple on the right are cel­e­brat­ing the above video from Bill Maher’s show where Alexan­dra Pelosi puts a cam­era on the enti­tle­ment culture.

Big Hol­ly­wood:

I have offended every­body at HBO, in New York,” she told Bill Maher dur­ing a seg­ment on this week’s “Real Time.” “All of the peo­ple I work with, they said ‘you can’t put that on TV.’ Some­how it was ok to do it to the tooth­less rednecks,”

Bre­it­bart TV:

To her credit, and to Bill Maher’s, they showed the video and openly dis­cussed how lib­er­als would hate it. Pelosi said “I didn’t have to go far to find ‘free­load­ing wel­fare queens.’” They were, in fact, right across the street from her New York City home.

Now I’ll con­cede that Pelosi and Maher risked some blow­back from this video but when I watched the whole seg­ment I didn’t see the coura­geous jour­nal­ists, I saw the Lord and Lady of the manor.

Sir Wal­ter FitzUrse: You are not a free­man any­more you are land­less and your father is an out­law, by my char­ity you are liv­ing in my house and are my serf now, do you understand?

Watch the video again. You’ll notice after his “we’re not racists” quote he spends the rest of the seg­ment mak­ing excuses for the peo­ple in NY out to get “Obama Bucks”:

For the Black guy his legacy is real, and the white guy from the south, he has a chip on his shoulder.”

There are no excuses offered for the poor south­erns in the first film, there is no extend­ing cir­cum­stance just shock that “they really believe this.” If only that tooth­less guy would accept our help we would take care of him.

Black­smith: That’s when Sir Wal­ter said I’d bet­ter take charge of those two home­less chil­dren, maybe he meant it kindly too, but they’ll be serfs Robin, and that’s not right.

As for Pelosi, note she isn’t con­cerned so much about the enti­tle­ments them­selves, she is con­cerned that they are caus­ing democ­rats to lose vot­ers like the door­man and her dri­ver. It’s some­how sav­ing those votes that is the moti­va­tion here. Maher reacts by attack­ing the door­man who isn’t grate­ful for his advantages.

Robin Hood: I don’t call it par­tic­u­larly hon­or­able to mis­treat these chil­dren, or make them serfs.

Sir Wal­ter FitzUrse: It was for their own good.

Robin Hood: Or yours?

The white door­man is a per­son of priv­i­leged, not Bill Alt­house: spot­ted this early

They stroke them­selves with this belief that because they sup­port the Demo­c­ra­tic Party, they are cer­ti­fied non-​racists. Where’s the self-​criticism? Isn’t it at least pos­si­ble that their party’s poli­cies rep­re­sent a low opin­ion of black peo­ple, that they are pater­nal­is­tic, that they take advan­tage of a seem­ingly locked in vot­ing bloc?

Of course it’s not pos­si­ble Ann. As Stan­ley Fish artic­u­lated there is no equiv­a­lence to be made. There are only those who vote with us, and those who vote against:

I know the objec­tions to what I have said here. It amounts to an apol­ogy for iden­tity pol­i­tics. It ele­vates tribal oblig­a­tions over the uni­ver­sal oblig­a­tions we owe to each other as cit­i­zens. It licenses dif­fer­en­tial and dis­crim­i­na­tory treat­ment on the basis of con­tested points of view. It sub­sti­tutes for the rule “don’t do it to them if you don’t want it done to you” the rule “be sure to do it to them first and more effec­tively.” It implies finally that might makes right. I can live with that.

If the tooth­less south­erner was will­ing to vote Obama Bill Maher and Stan­ley Fish would see that vote as the widow’s mite com­pared to his Maher’s mil­lion dol­lars absolved him from any cri­tique. As Pro­tein Wis­dom says:

To the pro­gres­sive, your social and polit­i­cal worth — in fact, your very claim to moral­ity — comes from your var­i­ous iden­tity pol­i­tics alliances. That is, your moral­ity is a func­tion not so much of what you do, but rather of where you claim to stand, and with whom.

That’s the real crime of those poor south­ern­ers, that’s the crime of the “priv­i­leged” door­man and dri­ver. They are work­ing hard for what they have an expect oth­ers to do the same.

Can’t the door­man and dri­ver under­stand that, like the Lords of old, the Pelo­sis in Wash­ing­ton like and the Mahers in Hol­ly­wood seek power and sta­tus sim­ply for the good of all? Don’t they real­ize if they sup­port the great Lords in DC and Hol­ly­wood, as trusted retain­ers, they might expect advance­ment from the state, a bet­ter job in a grow­ing fed­eral gov­ern­ment? Don’t they under­stand that by keep­ing an under­class on assis­tance they pro­vide pro­tec­tion to the retainer like them­selves to keep them from revolt (remem­ber Occupy)?

And if such assis­tance goes to the 2nd or third gen­er­a­tion it is a good thing because like those who came before them, they are repay­ing their bounty with votes that keep the enlight­ened lords in power.

This entire phi­los­o­phy & mind­set is con­trary to the entire march of West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion from Magna Carta to the Dec­la­ra­tion of Inde­pen­dence. It is the idea that some laws can be enforced while oth­ers are not, why some stan­dards apply to some and not to oth­ers. It’s the idea that the rights are granted by other men, the elites like them­selves and not from God

Per­haps Bill Maher and Ms. Pelosi should watch this episode in full:

And then per­haps they might under­stand the impor­tance of this final quote.

Wal­ter FitzUrse: “So the free man doesn’t mind cut­ting wood after all?”

Oswald A’Bland: “I don’t mind, it’s not keep­ing you warm.”

That is the essence of being free.

Update: I don’t know why I keep want­ing to spell M-​a-​h-​e-​r M-​a-​h-​a-​r? fixed.

Update 2:
Stacy on a fair fight

Update 3: The lonely con­ser­v­a­tive links, she must enjoy clas­sic TV.

Update 4: Insta­lanche thanks Glenn, while you are here dis­cover why some reli­gious fig­ures call­ing for the destruc­tion of churches are not news­wor­thy, why a fic­tional Sarah Palin is much more news­wor­thy than the real one and I’m still 67% shy of my fun­deraiser to pay for the replace­ment lap­top, clothes washer and the oil tank whis­tle that all died at once so any help would be most welcome.

Update 5: I was look­ing at an Alt­house link on Wis­con­sin at the same time as this one that link (and inter­est­ing story) is now here while the right link is where it belongs. thanks to TD for the heads up.

Update 6: More left­ist feu­dal­ism in the Media and now the White House here.

Arthur A’Bland: Don’t forget that you’re a free man, no matter how poor we are you’re free and no one can make you do anything that mean or servile, or wrong!

The Adventures of Robin Hood: Children of the Greenwood 1956

People on the right are celebrating the above video from Bill Maher’s show where Alexandra Pelosi puts a camera on the entitlement culture.

Big Hollywood:

“I have offended everybody at HBO, in New York,” she told Bill Maher during a segment on this week’s “Real Time.” “All of the people I work with, they said ‘you can’t put that on TV.’ Somehow it was ok to do it to the toothless rednecks,”

Breitbart TV:

To her credit, and to Bill Maher’s, they showed the video and openly discussed how liberals would hate it. Pelosi said “I didn’t have to go far to find ‘freeloading welfare queens.'” They were, in fact, right across the street from her New York City home.

Now I’ll concede that Pelosi and Maher risked some blowback from this video but when I watched the whole segment I didn’t see the courageous journalists, I saw the Lord and Lady of the manor.

Sir Walter FitzUrse: You are not a freeman anymore you are landless and your father is an outlaw, by my charity you are living in my house and are my serf now, do you understand?

Watch the video again. You’ll notice after his “we’re not racists” quote he spends the rest of the segment making excuses for the people in NY out to get “Obama Bucks”:

“For the Black guy his legacy is real, and the white guy from the south, he has a chip on his shoulder.”

There are no excuses offered for the poor southerns in the first film, there is no extending circumstance just shock that “they really believe this.” If only that toothless guy would accept our help we would take care of him.

Blacksmith: That’s when Sir Walter said I’d better take charge of those two homeless children, maybe he meant it kindly too, but they’ll be serfs Robin, and that’s not right.

As for Pelosi, note she isn’t concerned so much about the entitlements themselves, she is concerned that they are causing democrats to lose voters like the doorman and her driver. It’s somehow saving those votes that is the motivation here. Maher reacts by attacking the doorman who isn’t grateful for his advantages.

Robin Hood: I don’t call it particularly honorable to mistreat these children, or make them serfs.

Sir Walter FitzUrse: It was for their own good.

Robin Hood: Or yours?

The white doorman is a person of privileged, not Bill Althouse: spotted this early

They stroke themselves with this belief that because they support the Democratic Party, they are certified non-racists. Where’s the self-criticism? Isn’t it at least possible that their party’s policies represent a low opinion of black people, that they are paternalistic, that they take advantage of a seemingly locked in voting bloc?

Of course it’s not possible Ann. As Stanley Fish articulated there is no equivalence to be made. There are only those who vote with us, and those who vote against:

I know the objections to what I have said here. It amounts to an apology for identity politics. It elevates tribal obligations over the universal obligations we owe to each other as citizens. It licenses differential and discriminatory treatment on the basis of contested points of view. It substitutes for the rule “don’t do it to them if you don’t want it done to you” the rule “be sure to do it to them first and more effectively.” It implies finally that might makes right. I can live with that.

If the toothless southerner was willing to vote Obama Bill Maher and Stanley Fish would see that vote as the widow’s mite compared to his Maher’s million dollars absolved him from any critique. As Protein Wisdom says:

To the progressive, your social and political worth — in fact, your very claim to morality — comes from your various identity politics alliances. That is, your morality is a function not so much of what you do, but rather of where you claim to stand, and with whom.

That’s the real crime of those poor southerners, that’s the crime of the “privileged” doorman and driver. They are working hard for what they have an expect others to do the same.

Can’t the doorman and driver understand that, like the Lords of old, the Pelosis in Washington like and the Mahers in Hollywood seek power and status simply for the good of all? Don’t they realize if they support the great Lords in DC and Hollywood, as trusted retainers, they might expect advancement from the state, a better job in a growing federal government? Don’t they understand that by keeping an underclass on assistance they provide protection to the retainer like themselves to keep them from revolt (remember Occupy)?

And if such assistance goes to the 2nd or third generation it is a good thing because like those who came before them, they are repaying their bounty with votes that keep the enlightened lords in power.

This entire philosophy & mindset is contrary to the entire march of Western Civilization from Magna Carta to the Declaration of Independence. It is the idea that some laws can be enforced while others are not, why some standards apply to some and not to others. It’s the idea that the rights are granted by other men, the elites like themselves and not from God

Perhaps Bill Maher and Ms. Pelosi should watch this episode in full:

And then perhaps they might understand the importance of this final quote.

Walter FitzUrse: “So the free man doesn’t mind cutting wood after all?”

Oswald A’Bland: “I don’t mind, it’s not keeping you warm.”

That is the essence of being free.

Update: I don’t know why I keep wanting to spell M-a-h-e-r M-a-h-a-r? fixed.

Update 2:
Stacy on a fair fight

Update 3: The lonely conservative links, she must enjoy classic TV.

Update 4: Instalanche thanks Glenn, while you are here discover why some religious figures calling for the destruction of churches are not newsworthy, why a fictional Sarah Palin is much more newsworthy than the real one and I’m still 67% shy of my funderaiser to pay for the replacement laptop, clothes washer and the oil tank whistle that all died at once so any help would be most welcome.

Update 5: I was looking at an Althouse link on Wisconsin at the same time as this one that link (and interesting story) is now here while the right link is where it belongs. thanks to TD for the heads up.

Update 6: More leftist feudalism in the Media and now the White House here.
