Because the world needs another opinion

I’m a Racist – oh my!

Posted by Jeff Id on July 21, 2019

Update:Now I’m dumb apparently. I have to say that one really hurts my feelings coming from someone as elite as Brandon.  Read at your own risk.

If You’re Not a Xenophobe, Why Are You So Dumb?

Apparently open death wishes are not sufficient punishment for my future person, now I’ve truly hit the big leagues. Racist!!!

Brandon Shollenburger has a new angry post up where he says some words that are not very entertaining or accurate.  It is a bit fun though, apparently I’m a racist,bigoted, xenophobe or some other blatant libel.  It’s like they need a new list similar to ‘LGBTQAI+’ maybe we could start with RBX and leave space at the end for whatever new words come into vogue…….  It would really shorten the articles on some blogs.

Brandon wrote a lot of pseudo-emotional words including the below (my formatting):

First, my words as quoted by Brandon [he removed my links]:

Liberal news papers love to make the claim that there is NO evidence of illegal aliens voting in large numbers — these claims are false.

[links were here]

You know when mainstream media speaks on political issues, there is a near certainty that you are being misled. Of the 15.8 million registered voters in Texas, how many of those weren’t dumb enough to self identify as illegal aliens!! These are literally the people who admitted to it in a government office!

What we have in Texas is evidence of MASSIVE fraud. Even if the number is only double what the idiotic self reporting illegals have listed, we have an enormous voter fraud issue.

Brandon then wrote:

I don’t know how anyone could believe something this ridiculous. To be frank, I think some form of racism/xenophobia is the only answer because there is no rational way to reach these conclusions. How can one believe tens of thousands of people were “dumb enough to self identify as illegal aliens!!”? It seems to me the amount of contempt for the people in question can only arise from some form of bigotry.

Even if one thinks that level of contempt could somehow be justified, these beliefs contradict every piece of evidence available.

Lots of other words follow in his post but there is something to be said for brevity.


My ‘beliefs’ contradict every piece of evidence, not that they seem to differ, or that they conflict at times with, but completely contradict EVERY piece of evidence.

‘every piece of evidence available’  — huh.

Later on Brandon writes:

Claims of voter fraud in Texas were horribly flawed.Within a week of them being made, it was already known, and confirmed, tens of thousands of names from the list of 95,000 shouldn’t have been listed

Not just flawed but HORRIBLY FLAWED.  In fact, FLAWED to the point of extreme emoting in the universal ether, aneurysms, sweaty palms, dogs and cats living together OR perhaps his excited statement might be a just a wee bit overblown.

I need to point out that there has been NO refutation of the original article in the Washington Post, nor has there been any indication that reports of large numbers of illegal votes in this exact case were inaccurate.  At no time, did I or anyone else claim every vote on the list was illegal as Brandon’s words falsely imply and with the obfuscation of data by leftist politicians, it would be impossible to expect a perfect result.   In fact, the situation now is actually worse than I had ever imagined it would be.  As of today, they were only able to identify 25,000 of these 95,000 registered voters as legal voters during the lawsuits that followed this initial report. From Brandon’s own link – which he apparently failed to read or maybe in his adjective-laden waves of emotion he didn’t want you to know the truth (my bold below):

In court, state officials said about a quarter — 25,000 — of the people on the original list for investigation were placed there in error and had already proved their citizenship.

That is worse than I had imagined.  This means that instead of 58,000 potentially invalid votes, it could be much higher.  But even if it is not more than 58,000 illegal voters, the whole event proved it is not zero.   Non zero illegal voting was the evidence found, and so we are left with tens of thousands of unvetted votes that still appear to be illegal. Tens of thousands of what at this point we could reasonably assume are ‘likely illegal’ votes remain untested, and due to lawsuits by democrats, the investigation of these voters has been effectively blocked. All investigation halted by Democrats apparently equals zero evidence to Brandon.

—–Why would democrats invest so much money to stop another voter investigation?  Hmm….

—–Why didn’t they want the data to be investigated thoroughly?  Hmm.. Hmm….

—–Shouldn’t a card carrying skeptic ask such questions?  Hmm… Hmm.. Hmm…

hahaha.  Good stuff.

But even worse for me, in Brandon’s world, I’m now a racist.  [Queue music] Dum, dum, dum!!!!

It is critical to note that the original article in the Washington Post which I linked said (my bold):

But without additional verification, one cannot say these individuals all engaged in illegal voting, said Chris Davis, the head of the Texas Association of Elections Administrators.

It only takes a moderately curious intellect to see that Chris Davis isn’t discounting the evidence, but is rather indicating that the numbers as presented didn’t represent a full and accurate count of the true illegal votes.  The statement read carefully also is clearly indicating that at that time there appeared to be a large number of illegal votes cast.   Nothing presented by me contradicts this.   In fact, from the evidence Brandon presents, it appears the problem is even more significant than originally reported because we have greater certainty that the remaining folks are illegally registered to vote — the opposite of Brandon’s false and emotion laden claims. When false statements are made with understanding, we call this lying.   I would rather assume it’s just another confused socialist emoting in Brandon’s case.  He clearly feels bigotry and we cannot should not rationally argue with a feeling.

I am tired of having my vote stolen by leftist fascist authoritarians who neither believe in the US Constitution nor understand it.  We have tied the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement such that we are now importing people from other countries putting them on buses, and rather than taking them back across the line, we put them far from the border and release them with money, clothes, medicine and welfare and without legal consequence.  In addition, the authoritarian socialists actively work to insure that government doesn’t know who is a citizen and who is not at the time of voting.  Leftists in city governments are so extreme that they are openly helping the illegals while illegally and dangerously subverting our own law enforcement organizations.  Simultaneously, even the main-stream left argues that it is literally racist to show any form of identification when voting.  Caravans, obfuscation of data, non-prosecution of illegals, yet observing these things is “against every piece of evidence available” – oh and it’s racist and bigoted blah, blah ,blah..

It is well known that states actively hide the critical evidence which would fully expose the magnitude of illegal voting.  Voter privacy is used as the excuse, yet the data required would not identify the voters.   In each and every attempt to investigate vote fraud, voter suppression are the first words mentioned, followed closely by racist, bigot and xenophobe  (Seriously RBX… really makes some sense for these folks). We need a campaign to “conserve electrons!!” or something.

Is the illegal voting sufficient to swing elections?  Sure it is, you only need a thousand votes in some elections to swing the ballot and there are tens of millions of illegal people in the United States.   In addition, the census as it will be done in 2020 without identifying citizenship, is literally designed to give equal representation in congress to illegal immigrants.  A real Constitutional question lies in there – for those who read the Constitution.  In total, the situation as it stands means that citizen influence is being diluted by a bunch of very often uneducated people imported from socialist dictatorial countries. Numerically, the Democrat strategy is incredibly obvious. The left has insured that are no real consequences to people for voting illegally simply because the required information is hidden from law enforcement while that same law enforcement is being actively subverted.  Why wouldn’t non-citizens vote if there is no consequence?   But ‘no evidence’ has been the mantra for decades as Brandon continues to represent.  The leftist voter information wall will obviously fall at some point (this was a big crack!!), perhaps a big data leak or maybe the legal system will accidentally function, and when it does, those on the side of massive authoritarian unconstitutional government hope it will already be too late.  Brandon will be wrong again, but he clearly doesn’t mind being wrong when the ends justify the means.

It is apparent to me that in Brandon’s world, we should continue to ignore actual evidence of voter fraud.  Ignore the blatant government obfuscation of the data.  We should call out people who critique the situation as racists and bigots.  We should ignore the systematic manner in which the leftists are actively and openly suppressing citizen votes while ironically accusing rational people of the same thing.  We should assume that voter ID is racist, and that those nice imported people aren’t something we can discuss – because it’s racist!!

Brandon humorously ignores the evidence in this case to the point where he flat out claims the evidence doesn’t even exist.  He made me laugh this time for sure .

Just to tweak him and further accelerate Brandon’s aging process – In this legal climate as described above, just the magnitude of the numbers of illegal residents alone proves with great certainty almost any claim of massive illegal alien voter fraud and I (and many others) have little doubt that Trump’s millions of illegal votes was accurate.

On a far, far, far more important note, perhaps even horribly far, shouldn’t ‘busing’ have two ‘S’s?  It doesn’t seem right.   Must be some kind of left wing authoritarian plot to make me bad at spelling.   Probably spying on me right now!!  Where’s my bible??!!!

    I read his article..I thought I was on The Onion web site..At least he can get some traffic to his dead site from here….to help him reinforce his self importance..he always was a mendacious prat.

      He’s definitely special. I don’t know anything about him but I imaging an angry 30ish year old living in his moms basement. That image just seems to fit his style. Mad at the world, smarter than everyone and lots of time on his hands.

    So Brandon is one of the reasons I quit blogging. Not personally him but those like him. Some folks have a tenuous contact with reality and the ability to see an obvious upright image upside down is one of the most frightening characteristics of a personality. If you can’t see real, you can’t make judgements. Brandon has gone around the internet like a bull in a China shop proclaiming his genius and screaming at others. He’s really terrifying at some level. He might not be dysfunctional enough to snap but how would We know. The anger and self righteousness is palpable as is the supremacy of his thought. When self certainty meets with zero humility, I truly do not feel safe. Add his blatantly extreme insecurity to the mix and you have a hot mess.

    • Jeff Id, I wasn’t going to comment here since I figure you wouldn’t want me to, but this is an absurd remark. Leaving aside the trivial things, like how I’ve never gone around claiming to be a genius (and in fact, have often discussed my lack of knowledge/expertise), it is silly to suggest I am a threatening presence. If you don’t feel safe because of things I write, that would be called paranoia.

      I get you may not want to discuss criticisms people post of things you write, but it’s sad to post derogatory screens about people while refusing to even attempt a rational discussion. If all you have are insults and whining, you’ve got nothing.

      • Jeff id said

        I did quit blogging because of the types of things you do. I’ve seen it in a number of folks and it is frightening because it is detached from reality. You wrote a whole love letter to Steve McIntyre, whom I have met, and the point was you are smart, he is wrong and old.

        You are wrong.


        And loud.

        And certain you are not wrong.

        Even this comment where you blab about derogatory language doesn’t make sense. That is the tone of everything you’ve said about me this week. I’ve done little else except express actual fear of an unstable personality. Well, I did predict your age and living conditions. Likely accurate still.

        You are scary because you don’t see reality and you think you are the smartest person in the room every time. I’m concerned that you will get even angrier at some point.

        • Jeff Id, I won’t pursue this after this comment because I can’t see any value, but I will note what you say is absurd. For instance, you claim my remark about your use of “derogatory language doesn’t make sense” in a comment filled with derogatory remarks. On top of this, you say things which simply aren’t true, like saying I “think [I am] the smartest person in the room every time.” Not only have I never said anything of the sort, I don’t believe it. You’re simply making things up about me even though it is you couldn’t possibly know what you claim to be true.

          If you are truly afraid of me because of the things I’ve written, you are paranoid. Nothing I’ve ever said could justify such feelings, especially not from a person like you whose rhetoric is far more vitriolic. That this latest post of yours shows you can’t even accurately describe what I’ve said, or for that matter what you’ve said, goes a long way in suggesting the person who is out of line is you. I mean, if your unhinged rhetoric wasn’t enough to convince someone already.

    You might be interested in work by Judicial Watch. They have a report someplace which says, as I remember, something like 3% of all votes cast are fraudulent. This would enough to swing most elections except that the fraud is usually concentrated in particular regions and the republican form of voting helps counteract it. I chuckle when there are more votes cast than registered voters, or when an audit shows that dead people are voting.

    Brandon has gotten increasingly shrill and toxic in his online presence. It’s a shame that he can’t see this. He has always had a tendency to logic chopping and focusing on minute details without being able to see the bigger picture.

    However, Jeff, you could continue blogging and just decide to block the trolls from commenting at your site.
