‘Learn to Code’; It’s Okay for Me, not for Thee. The Origin of the Meme and What Whiners won’t Tell You Through the Crocodile Tears…


January 2019

Trigger (heh) warning:  This post is political in nature and, unlike certain subjects in the news, is actually based on real facts.  It also has some opinion in it, but mostly facts.  Anyway, if you don’t want to read a political post based in fact and reality, move along.  You have been trigger (heh) warned.

I published a post a while back about little boys who don’t know how to can’t change a flat tire as illustrated in an insurance commercial. I was criticized as being equally lame because I couldn’t, oh I can’t even remember at this point, something about building a webpage. I still get a chuckle out of my reply, “Seems like someone doesn’t know how to change a flat.”

Back several years ago, when then President Obama decided it would be a good idea to kill the coal industry, snarky journalists left-wing cheerleaders twattered and wrote that the soon-to-be laid-off coal miners should “learn to code”. That meme came from another earlier meme in which some silicon valley kid suggested the homeless should “learn to code” so they would no longer have to be homeless.

Well, folks, the meme is back! This time it’s being rightly hurled back at the same media types left-wing extremist hacks who flung it at the coal miners as they were recently “laid off” from Buzzfeed – that would be the same Buzzfeed who just got kicked in the nuts by Robert Mueller for peddling in fake news – and Huffington Post.

Wait, you didn’t know the Michael Cohen “if true” story was fake? Well, you do now.

Anyway, now that “learn to code” is being thrown at the hacks who once used it on hard working, blue collar coal miners, the vast left-wing conspiracy theorists who are left, including some higher-ups at Facef*** are treating it like some kind of hate crime.  Free speech for me, but not for thee – another variant.


Try this, media hacks – and this goes for FOX, too – try a little less opinion and stick to the facts. And remember, “if true” should never be use again. Second sign of fake news, right there, only slightly behind “unnamed (or anonymous) sources close to the [insert target of fake news hit-piece here]…”

Perhaps it’s not fair, though, to place all left-wing hack reporters under the same umbrella.  Maybe that’s going to far, no?  I mean, after all, it’s not like they were all called deplorable… or how about racist because of who they voted for… or something like that.  The guy is orange for God’s sake.  Come to think of it, there’s a great anti-racism joke in there somewhere.

Anyway, enough politics for another few months.  Learn to code boys and girls, because reporters created their own lay-off.  Keep it up.

    Spot on Jim.

    I feckin loath the MSM prostitutes AND their Bankster whore masters. – The Global Elite murdering pedos. I’ve said for years that the Far Left are dangerous.More so than the Far Right. (though I disdain both equally)

    But the Far left are more Fascist than the Far Right, not communist and-or socialist as many suggest, but Fascist. More to the point, Corportatist in nature. They boldly lie, they fabricate and commit violence to further their tyrannical causes. This is exactly what the German and the Italian government and media did in the 1930s and 1940s.

    Living through this era is often surreal, I know the 60s were radical and brought about a significant change in society, but I believe the 2000’s has seen a true paradigm shift in morals and ethics.on BOTH sides on the political isle. But for whatever strange reason, the far left have become a despicable enterprise of hate and violence.

    Many of the left’s supporters have also become radicalized, not just more vocal, but much more dangerous- this can be seen in the actions of the fbi, the cia, and the majority of the government. As one of many examples, The Roger Stone case is sickening.

    Ifeel for the youngsters, the world they are growing up in is nothing like the one we grew up in. That’s not just rhetoric or nostalgia talking, it’s very evident and scary to think about what they will probably face.

    To be honest, most of this went whoosh, over my head, though I got the gist of it. I do, however agree, media tends to hold to a double standard. What’s good for me is not good for you or v.s. That tends to be how it has been since… forever.

      Actually, and I almost hate to admit this, I think the media was a little closer to fair when they held their monopoly. They always tilted the scale, of course.
