    Question Blue People?

    Over the last few days I have heard the term "blue people" in the media and am unsure of its meaning.

    I am assuming it is an anti-racist term – skin colour means nothing – but I simply don’t know.

    Why do I ask?

    Well, it seems coincidental that it so closely resembles the term “blue pill people” that we have been discussing for years, and I have a natural distrust of coincidences.

    Does “blue people” equate to “blue pill people”, and any deviation from this is wrong?

    I am not totally tuned in to modern terminology via social media so maybe someone can explain this to me.

    Edit:

    Or maybe it's a reference to cops - from the old blues & twos reference.

    Re: Blue People?

    Is it local to your area? What's the context? Do you recall?

    In the USA, there are folks in Kentucky with blue skin, referred to as the "blue people of Kentucky" who have a rare genetic trait that gives them a disease that makes their skin blue.

    But, likely the media is not talking about them.

    Recently, Elon Musk tweeted to "take the red pill" so then I saw a newspaper article explaining about the Matrix movie and the blue pill too, but no reference to MGTOW of course.

    Reference to cops?

    When I used to do towing, the cops wouldn't turn on their lights in some of the neighborhoods I'd retrieve stolen cars from, they told me to do the same, so it wouldn't start a brick shower coming from the tenement buildings!

    I like seeing forest out my windows, it's better than the orange flicker of flames, flashing blue lights, sirens, and chanting mobs! Way to many to shoot! Barricade or RUN!

    I tried googling it and seen the links to the blue people of Kentucky, but it’s nothing to do with that.

    I can’t be too specific about context, that’s kind of why I’m asking. I’ve heard it used maybe 3 or 4 times in the last couple of days while watching coverage of what’s been happening on the streets of the U.S. lately and this is the general context. Unfortunately I cannot wind it back to hear it again in full context and it doesn’t get repeated within the same segment.

    Since they’re speaking about black people and white people and cops, I’m now leaning towards it meaning cops but it could just as easily be a reference to the average Joe regardless of skin colour.

    What I can say is it isn’t coming from reporters or politicians but from ordinary U.S. people. Not to belittle what is being said, but because it’s often stuff I’ve heard many times before I’m only listening to what’s being said with half an ear until I hear something that catches my attention, such as this phrase “blue people”, but by the time it registers with me I’ve already missed the context of it, hence my question.

    Could it be sad people? There's enough of them, that's for sure!

    Possibly, as you say there's enough of them.

    They could also be referring to Democrats I suppose.

    Doesn't really matter much, I just thought someone may have come across the term.

    It's a sad day here in the States, preachers getting dragged under semis, others being murdered in the streets, and here I am, condemned deep in a forest of utter and absolute corruption.

    If ever confronted with the choice of condemned forest or the city, I'll go with the forest every time! Even if it's on fire!

    I hear you bro.

    I spent the first 20 or so years of my life living in the middle of such carnage, now I'm watching it happen again in another place. It brings me no end of sadness.

    And I agree, living in a city is just wrong. It's not how we're meant to live. Unfortunately I know no other life and now I'm in my 50's I just don't think I'd be able for anything else.

    My thoughts are with all of you there in America.

    Blue people? In this society they are either oppressors or victims. There are no other kinds of people anymore...

    Re: Blue People?

    I'll hazard a guess that the description is along the lines of blue states or blue cities/counties. This is all due to the electoral maps that shade a locale that a republican wins in red and a democrat in blue. In that context "blue people" is new as there are always some of each in a given area despite any predominance of one or the other.

    Was it ever any different? There have always been those that seek to oppress and control and those that didn’t feel like this, those that just want to earn a living, have always been their victims.

    My only observation to add to this is that today the oppressors often do quite a decent job of portraying themselves as the victims to the masses and in this way they encourage the sheeple to victimise themselves on their behalf.

    Never underestimate those that seek control over you; whether it’s women, clergy, politicians, sjws, bosses that seek to control your personal life or viewpoints, or any other group.

    The manipulation is everywhere and if you don’t fall for it in one form you’re likely to succumb to another. The only solution, as your signature states quite eloquently, is “No”.

    No, it was not. At one time there may have been a collective pretense grand enough to be worth fighting for. It was probably a pipe dream, but it motivated people and society towards something better. Today, the masses have nothing worth fighting for; it is easier to roll over and claim victim status to achieve what they have been told is right. Watch the news and you will see society for what it is: valueless.

    Any community is defined by its boundaries: physical, economic, political, familial, moral, etc. Those boundaries are based on values (in its broadest meaning.) But those boundaries mean that something is excluded and exclusion is the greatest sin a person/community can commit in today's society. To be totally inclusive is to be without boundaries and without values. People living in that society will have no personal grounding or direction and will be easily manipulated.

    Never underestimate those that seek control over you; whether it’s women, clergy, politicians, sjws, bosses that seek to control your personal life or viewpoints, or any other group.
    Spot on.

    Pursuing personal sovereignty is the only rational response. It comes with a heavy price tag: we lose the numbness of the masses and have to become indifferent to the public hostility of having personal values.

    Jackoff, one of these days I am going to bicycle the entire Irish coast. When I get over there, I would like to buy you a pint or two.

    When I think of Ireland, it conjures up thoughts of places like Easter Island, where all the trees are gone, except in Ireland, there's stone walls and the sheep are grazing on what's left! It's like Kansas surrounded by ocean!

    Naw my friend, Ireland isn't called the Emerald Isle for nothing. Politics aside, it's a green and pleasant land full of flora and fauna of many types.

    Ten minutes drive from most parts (inner cities excepted) you're surrounded by fields and forests and lakes and hills and mountains. It really is a beautiful place to live.

    It's just the roads are complete and utter shyte!

    In New England, we have the highest number of northern tree species, they say the Himalayas prevented the southern migration and survival of many tree species during the last ice age, on this side of the planet the northern continent has a land link to the southern continent with mountain ranges running north and south on the coasts like a big protective valley, no Himalayas littered with dead shit that tried going south.

    I'm not big into horticulture, that being said there are some things I would like to see. Giant Redwoods that have had their roots in the ground for hundreds of years to name but one. We have nothing that even compares here, although I gather there are plans to plant some here:

    Edit: Sorry, horticulture isn't the right word. I was aiming for a study of flora not a cultivation of it. I just can't think of the right word at 1:50 in the morning.

    Edit Edit: I think botany is the word I was struggling to find.

    Hello folks,

    A quick search and I reckon I got a handle on the matter re: Blue people + USA + news.


    It seems to stem from: #BlackLivesMatter > #AllLivesMatter > #BlueLivesMatter


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Lives_Matter

    https://junkee.com/bluelivesmatter-hijacking/256307

    So it seems that 'Blue People' might reference emergency services workers (hospital, fire&rescue,police, rangers etc) as opposed to the broader 'Blue collar' (an Americanism for working-class).
    Flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate. Zhuangzi

    someone asked the poet Sophocles: "How are you in regard to sex, Sophocles? Can you still make love to a woman?" Hush man, the poet replied, I am very glad to have escaped from this, like a slave who has escaped from a mad and cruel master."

    Dont worry about me. Worry about why you're worried about me.

    Blue People (...on a lighter and better note)



    Jackoff, one of these days I am going to bicycle the entire Irish coast. When I get over there, I would like to buy you a pint or two.
    How about a tribal gathering MGTOW cycle tour of Ireland with Woad?



    Woad (Isatis tinctoria)

    Grown in Europe since the Stone Age it has a long association with East Anglia, notably with Boudicca and the Iceni tribe who used woad to colour their faces before going into battle. Further north the Picts also gained notoriety for their body painting with the blue woad dye. The Romans referred to these Ancient Britons as 'Picts' as it is Celtic for "painted".
    History of Woad

    Jackoff "It's just the roads are complete and utter shyte!"
    Sometimes its a 'good thing'.

    I don't cycle much anymore or at least I choose the time of day and date wisely since an ordinary bike-ride (in England) is now an extreme sport death-race dodging the 4x4's and super-cars that good roads enable. They don't even moderate their driving when they hit the country lanes so you have 1.5 tons of metal travelling at 70 MPH coming at you in both directions every 2-10 minutes.

    Luckily we still have bad roads, bridleways and ancient unmettled drovers routes which are a joy to navigate and most of the time my bike-ride ends-up more of a bike-push which is a nice and gentle way of prolonging the experience.

    The recent lock-down got 100's more cyclists out enjoying the temporary respite from the tyranny of the internal combustion engine and damned if I wasn't nominated as one the Nations key-worker heros-of-the-day so it was a bigtime missed opportunity....bastards.

    I have an old Post-bike...I'm a-gonna inflate its tyres and head out...and ignore the funny looks.
