In my previous post, I posted this map of how comfortable Europeans are regarding love relationships of their children in regards to race, and AP provided the original stats.

map-europe-poll-miscegeneration

I am always a bit saddened that Russia doesn’t participate in the Eurobarometer polls, but fortunately, I found that VCIOM asked rather similar questions in polls from 2002 and 2010.

The methodology is a bit different. Eurobarometer defined “being comfortable” if one of your children was in a love relationship with [member of ethnic group] and you rated your level of Comfort with that in the region of 7-10 (out of 10), or indifference. The Russian poll asks if you would approve, disapprove, or be indifferent towards one of your close relatives (son, daughter, grandkid) marrying [member of ethnic group].

I think the questions are close enough for direct comparisons to be meaningful by summing the percentage of Russians who either approve or are indifferent.

% Russians ok with kids marrying: 2002 2010
Russians 96% 96%
Ukrainians, Belorussians 83% 82%
Latvians, Estonians, Lithuanians 61% 57%
Georgians, Armenians, Azeris 38% 37%
Central Asians 38% 33%
Jews 49% 47%
Chechens 28% 28%
Germans, Frenchs, English 66% 61%
Americans . 55%
Arabs . 29%

In terms of marriage preferences, Russians seem to be less philo-Semitic than Poles, about the same as Czechs, Lithuanians, and Romanians, and more philo-Semitic than Slovaks.

They are also fully within the bands of normality for Eastern Europe so far as marriages with Muslims go.

If Chechens could be considered proxies for Africans, Russians would be as “based” on that question as any in Eastern Europe (though far less so than 1950s Americans).

    Yeah - that is kind of a stretch. I would imagine Arabs would be closer of a proxy for obvious reasons. But the next part of the sentence is intriguing, at least to me:

    Russians would be as “based” on that question as any in Eastern Europe
     
    I'm not sure what qualifies for "based" but this question doesn't seem to get to the meat of it. So for instance, maybe people don't want their kids marrying fat people or would rather have their daughter marry a Latvian pro ice-hockey player or a Georgian scientist over a Russian street sweeper. But going deeper, what exactly are they willing to do about it? Comparing to post-WW2 America doesn't seem sound because parts of America actually put their opinion into legal practice with anti-miscegenation laws. I think the better question is, would they be willing to have legal restrictions on these things - because otherwise it's just opinions; maybe you don't want your kids getting into goth or heavy-metal lifestyles but kids do a bunch of stuff their parents don't like.

    For instance, if you ask me; would I like my daughter marrying a non-Muslim - the answer is - no.

    If you ask me; are you willing to support laws to legally annul the marriage if she does - hell yes!

    Peace.

  2. Most depressing post I’ve read in a long time.

    Why are Czechs and Slovaks so much better than everyone else?

    The questions in Czech were poorly phrased, so I wouldn't take the results at face-value. If you ever visited Prague, you'd find it hard to believe those are the values. I saw far more women with mixed-race children than in Warsaw. Prague may be a bubble, but it is a large percentage of the total population. Much larger than Warsaw. Brno is a beautiful city, and I saw the same thing there.

    In general, it's better if we look at a battery of polls. Fondapol did an exhaustive survey last spring. You can download the whole thing here:

    http://www.fondapol.org/en/data-fondapol/data-fondapol-what-next-for-democracy/

    You also have the survey from Pew. Neither asks directly about relationships but they do ask directly about non-white immigration, specifically from MENA and SSA. Generally speaking, CZ/SK/HU do best but the difference between them and the 2nd tier (like PL) is not huge. This is also more consistent with other findings.

    CBOS - our premier public opinion institute - has been running a poll asking questions on refugee sentiments for quite a long while, specifically from MENA/SSA. It's something like 75% against, 20% in favour and 5% neutral. Most polls suggest that opposition actually goes *up* with youth rather than with older age.

    The numbers in Fondapol suggests that Czech/Slovak opposition is closer to 85-87% rather than "only" 75% you'd see in Poland via CBOS. Which lends credence to the idea that they are more hardline on immigration. But the difference between 85% and 75% is hardly as huge as those eurobarometer polls, which is why it is an outlier. It's also consistent with what you see in the Pew Research poll:

    I knew a couple of Czech women who were unable to talk about their childhood experiences because at the time the culture was so repressive that people reported even family members. Whereas in Romania I was told academics would go for walks in the park to talk but otherwise life was ok. In Macedonia I was told people felt safe and happy. Different experiences of Eastern Bloc. Maybe CzechSlovak experience left the people wary of strangers, including social scientists waving papers at them.

  3. If Chechens could be considered proxies for Africans

    But can they? Chechens seem to be far worse in some ways. If your daughter married an African, I’d think the main worry would be that he’ll be a lazy loser and eventually disappear once children have been born, not paying any child support and leaving your daughter as a single parent with mixed-race kids. With Chechens the worries would be more like that your daughter will have to convert to Islam, being controlled and brainwashed in all manner of ways, and eventually perhaps be murdered in an honor killing.
    At least that’s probably the thought process many people in Europe have regarding the potential acceptability of blacks and Muslims as sons in law.

    Asian American incels take note. More seriously: it's not money as much as behavior. Simple farmers and shopkeepers get Russian wives in the Far East just fine. As women write on forums, Chinese men are generally polite, not heavy drinkers and good dads (yeah, I know how they treated baby girls under one child policy, but it didn't apply if one parent was a foreign citizen). Russians sadly tend to be apathetic "couch dads" who leave all the burden of childrearing on women, hence the joke: "I grew up in a typical same-sex family of mom and grandma". If Russian guys in the Far East changed their behavior as they already do in more developed regions (where coincidentally no girl wants a Chinese husband), they would obviously be the better option, given the shared language and culture and looks/size advantage.

    CBOS typically translate their opinion surveys with a time-lag of 3-4 months and the latest poll on refugees came out in early December of 2017. Key graph is this:

    https://i.imgur.com/JKAF3fh.png

    I don't think I have to tell you what the colors mean. The full document asks about refugees in general(and in a Polish context this would include Ukrainians) so I hand-picked that graph which only asks about MENA/SSA.

    The moment in late 2015 when acceptance increased was the prime "dead Arab children on the beach" massive propaganda push. Still interesting that opposition, despite it all, managed a small lead. Perhaps more fundamentally, those strongly opposed (deep red) were far more numerous than those strongly in favour (deep green). This suggests that support was very fleeting and shallow and mostly driven by massive propaganda. And indeed that seems to have been the case, since acceptance has completely collapsed.

    It's too early to see if we'll converge on a steady 85% opposition á la Czech but the trendline is going that way.

    The young voted for right-wing parties in much greater numbers than the old, so that is a sign. Maybe we're simply seeing "progress by funerals" at play in that graph.

    Prague is a 'bubble'. It also has a few tens of thousands resident foreigners, students, and also is overrun by tourists in the city center. I am not sure you can visually judge much by what you see walking around. Prague amounts to 12-13% of Czech R, more than Warsaw in Poland, but not significant statistically.

    Measuring attitudes is imprecise, I agree that 75% or 85% is roughly the same. I think one has to combine attitudes with willingness to fight (resist) and the geographic circumstances. By those measures, Czech R. is more exposed to mass migration than Poland or Slovakia.

    People get fooled by the low percentage of migrants often claiming that 2-5% is very small, or that 85% majority native (e.g. like Russia) is stable. When you look at the age, gender and geographic distribution it is not that good. E.g., even 30,000 migrants if they are mostly young males living in 1-2 biggest cities is very destabilising. My rule of thumb is that to maintain cultural continuity and avoid problems, any migrant groups should be less than 2-5% of the relevant age and gender group in that city. By that standard, Prague is already slipping into migrant mess. The point is to facilitate assimilation and even intermarriage, it works well with 1 out of 20, it doesn't with 1 out of 5.

    As always, I would point out that the biggest single risk factor are re-emigres from Western Europe who can relatively easily migrate east and then bring in their families from the Third World.

    The question was about ethnic Russians (русские), who are about 80% of Russian citizens. Since 2% of respondents said they disapproved and 2% said it's difficult to say, this must mean that most minority respondents were ok with their kids marrying ethnic Russians.

  16. BTW, I want to adress something which I felt was an unspoken assumption of AK. It was also brought up by Swedish_Family. Namely the theory of “creeping liberalism”. First feminism -> LGBT -> Multiculturalism. That’s the theory.

    But if that is the case, how is this explained?

    Czechia is quite liberal on gay marriage. If this “creeping liberalism” thesis was accurate, how do you square their very strong opposition on refugees (as a strong marker of multiculturalism). The orthogonal example is Russia, which has very strong opposition to gay marriage yet has quite relaxed views on diversity.

    Yes, you have countries like Sweden which is ultra-liberal on both, but there isn’t such a clear-cut rule as both AK and Swedish_Family argued. Another historical example would be the US. They had a very strong religious right for a long time, yet opened the gates to non-white immigration in 1965. Taiwan recently approved gay marriage yet have minimal refugee migration and even regular work migration is quite limited. The whole “liberal in one sphere will necessarily creep into the other” is not a clear-cut conclusion. There are too many countries which are either deeply homophobic but are soft on diversity or pro-gay marriage but has quite harsh immigration norms.

    The Czechs have very liberal attitudes when it comes to sexual issues and religion is mostly absent in public life so their attitude to gay marriage would not be a surprise. They also remember what it was like to be invaded by a foreign power so are keen to keep strong control of their borders. Maybe the '56 experience also explains Hungary's stance on this.

    You keep bringing the same point and I like it. Nationalists should try to bring LGBTs into their movement or at least to not treat them as their enemies. It can be a tactical move just like the alliance with the Zionist Islamophobes. Racial pollution in the post-WWII and post-Rwanda world is practically irreversible while gays can always be put back into comfortable closets once social mores change.

    That's a great question, and I think answering it is what best would help us understand where the true political lines are today.

    My starting assumption is that the end target is a global government. 

    To that end, you have to change/overthrow the existing order in Western societies, best summed up by the pithy " God, King and Country" + family. These 4 ideas have underpinned the West for centuries.

    - God is taken out when you take out Christianity, along with its stabilizing institutions (churches, schools). Relativism is the contemporary instrument to undermine Christianity. Ridicule aids.

    - 'King' was taken out after WWI. Democracy as legitimate government was substituted, with no turning back. But democracy breaks down when citizens are isolated, without subsidiarity. Democracies can be bought.

    - "Country", understood as one people in  one territory, was slowly substituted by 'nation-state'. This then evolved into "states". Multiculturalism is the instrument to undermine country.

    - "Family", understood as one man, one woman & their children, is an institution peculiar to the West. Its basic cell. Feminism was the first destructive wedge. Gender ideology (LGTB) and 'white male' identitarianism is the  coup de grace.

    Multiculturalism DOES NOT "follow" gender ideology or vice-versa. Both are the instruments currently used overthrow 'the West'. Its central tenets and institutions. The institutions that protect the individual from the tyranny of a Super-State.

    The globalist social contract (if it can be called that), is typified through the semi-globalist institutions (EU, the whole multilateral system) and then pushed at the national level, depending on what is needed. The scenario for Czechs is different than for USA.

  18. Black male/white female and vice versa is what I saw in two television ads today in the NFL playoff games. No asian/white or white/latino relationships. Come to think of it, its seems like black/white is the one that’s pushed the most in advertisements specifically.

    Amazon echo was one, it also featured biracial children. Their full ad campaign is on Youtube. Taco bell was the other.

    And perhaps its worthwhile to muse a bit on why social liberalism always seems to spread to various other institutions, and one major reason I feel is that extremist elements in any subculture ultimately drive the dialogue. Its the nature of organizations: you won't be able to have "moderate homosexual lobby" without it becoming the "gay lobby", which inevitably will seek outside support in order to advance their agenda. All organizations except explicitly rightist organizations tend drift left - innately leftist organizations drift left even faster. Virtue spiraling is pretty much the norm these days.

    In a democracy, this works even more swiftly, if naturalizing voters is going to give your organization the edge, then that is the correct thing to do for your party. The methods of players are determined by the rules of the game. In this sense, gays are one of the most toxic elements to long-term society since as they do not have children, they do not have any personal need to sacrifice for an undefined future, but rather seek maximal freedom and safety for their activities. This means that they will seek divergent goals from others with families and children.

    The questions in Czech were poorly phrased, so I wouldn't take the results at face-value. If you ever visited Prague, you'd find it hard to believe those are the values. I saw far more women with mixed-race children than in Warsaw. Prague may be a bubble, but it is a large percentage of the total population. Much larger than Warsaw. Brno is a beautiful city, and I saw the same thing there.

    In general, it's better if we look at a battery of polls. Fondapol did an exhaustive survey last spring. You can download the whole thing here:

    http://www.fondapol.org/en/data-fondapol/data-fondapol-what-next-for-democracy/

    You also have the survey from Pew. Neither asks directly about relationships but they do ask directly about non-white immigration, specifically from MENA and SSA. Generally speaking, CZ/SK/HU do best but the difference between them and the 2nd tier (like PL) is not huge. This is also more consistent with other findings.

    CBOS - our premier public opinion institute - has been running a poll asking questions on refugee sentiments for quite a long while, specifically from MENA/SSA. It's something like 75% against, 20% in favour and 5% neutral. Most polls suggest that opposition actually goes *up* with youth rather than with older age.

    The numbers in Fondapol suggests that Czech/Slovak opposition is closer to 85-87% rather than "only" 75% you'd see in Poland via CBOS. Which lends credence to the idea that they are more hardline on immigration. But the difference between 85% and 75% is hardly as huge as those eurobarometer polls, which is why it is an outlier. It's also consistent with what you see in the Pew Research poll:

    http://assets.pewresearch.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/11/2017/05/05161334/PF_17.05.10_centralEasternEurope_homogeneity420px.png

    CZ on top, but PL not far behind. Russia at the bottom.

    Prague is a ‘bubble’. It also has a few tens of thousands resident foreigners, students, and also is overrun by tourists in the city center. I am not sure you can visually judge much by what you see walking around. Prague amounts to 12-13% of Czech R, more than Warsaw in Poland, but not significant statistically.

    Measuring attitudes is imprecise, I agree that 75% or 85% is roughly the same. I think one has to combine attitudes with willingness to fight (resist) and the geographic circumstances. By those measures, Czech R. is more exposed to mass migration than Poland or Slovakia.

    People get fooled by the low percentage of migrants often claiming that 2-5% is very small, or that 85% majority native (e.g. like Russia) is stable. When you look at the age, gender and geographic distribution it is not that good. E.g., even 30,000 migrants if they are mostly young males living in 1-2 biggest cities is very destabilising. My rule of thumb is that to maintain cultural continuity and avoid problems, any migrant groups should be less than 2-5% of the relevant age and gender group in that city. By that standard, Prague is already slipping into migrant mess. The point is to facilitate assimilation and even intermarriage, it works well with 1 out of 20, it doesn’t with 1 out of 5.

    As always, I would point out that the biggest single risk factor are re-emigres from Western Europe who can relatively easily migrate east and then bring in their families from the Third World.

It is a very different world once you hop on the tube direction South city or even Zizkov, which borders on the centrum.

    I would also add that Prague has a HUGE enclave of Slovaks and in the last 10 years, Ukrainians and Russians(some universities offer full programs in russian at least since 2010;many central asian types). I think it will be less than 10% of Czechia whole.

    Also of note, Moravians (capital Brno) are a little bit of a different breed from the north (Prague) - they are even more based, like the Slovaks.

    The question was about ethnic Russians (русские), who are about 80% of Russian citizens. Since 2% of respondents said they disapproved and 2% said it’s difficult to say, this must mean that most minority respondents were ok with their kids marrying ethnic Russians.

    BTW, I want to adress something which I felt was an unspoken assumption of AK. It was also brought up by Swedish_Family. Namely the theory of "creeping liberalism". First feminism -> LGBT -> Multiculturalism. That's the theory.

    But if that is the case, how is this explained?

    https://www.unzcloud.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/map-east-europe-support-for-gay-marriage.png

    Czechia is quite liberal on gay marriage. If this "creeping liberalism" thesis was accurate, how do you square their very strong opposition on refugees (as a strong marker of multiculturalism). The orthogonal example is Russia, which has very strong opposition to gay marriage yet has quite relaxed views on diversity.

    Yes, you have countries like Sweden which is ultra-liberal on both, but there isn't such a clear-cut rule as both AK and Swedish_Family argued. Another historical example would be the US. They had a very strong religious right for a long time, yet opened the gates to non-white immigration in 1965. Taiwan recently approved gay marriage yet have minimal refugee migration and even regular work migration is quite limited. The whole "liberal in one sphere will necessarily creep into the other" is not a clear-cut conclusion. There are too many countries which are either deeply homophobic but are soft on diversity or pro-gay marriage but has quite harsh immigration norms.

    The Czechs have very liberal attitudes when it comes to sexual issues and religion is mostly absent in public life so their attitude to gay marriage would not be a surprise. They also remember what it was like to be invaded by a foreign power so are keen to keep strong control of their borders. Maybe the ’56 experience also explains Hungary’s stance on this.

    Most depressing post I've read in a long time.

    Why are Czechs and Slovaks so much better than everyone else?

    I knew a couple of Czech women who were unable to talk about their childhood experiences because at the time the culture was so repressive that people reported even family members. Whereas in Romania I was told academics would go for walks in the park to talk but otherwise life was ok. In Macedonia I was told people felt safe and happy. Different experiences of Eastern Bloc. Maybe CzechSlovak experience left the people wary of strangers, including social scientists waving papers at them.

  33. This chart doesn’t make sense to me with regards to Islam because it’s putting the question in the wrong category. There are plenty of, say, Syrian Muslims that wouldn’t want their kids marrying a Gulf Arab or a Pakistani (my brother lost out on a prospect because of this) or a Senegalese. Hell – some don’t want their kids marrying outside their village or extended family. That does not mean they don’t want their kids marrying a non-Muslim – they certainly do.

    I would be interested if the question was asked in a two part; 1. Would you be OK with your kid marrying a Muslim, and 2. What if they were from your own ethnic background.

    That would help figure out whether the issue is Islam or the perceived potential cultural divide.

    Love relationship is easier when he is rich. Cambodia had to ban their women marrying much older Westerners.

    Love relationship is easier when he is rich.

    Asian American incels take note. More seriously: it’s not money as much as behavior. Simple farmers and shopkeepers get Russian wives in the Far East just fine. As women write on forums, Chinese men are generally polite, not heavy drinkers and good dads (yeah, I know how they treated baby girls under one child policy, but it didn’t apply if one parent was a foreign citizen). Russians sadly tend to be apathetic “couch dads” who leave all the burden of childrearing on women, hence the joke: “I grew up in a typical same-sex family of mom and grandma”. If Russian guys in the Far East changed their behavior as they already do in more developed regions (where coincidentally no girl wants a Chinese husband), they would obviously be the better option, given the shared language and culture and looks/size advantage.

    If Chechens could be considered proxies for Africans

    LOL

    Yeah – that is kind of a stretch. I would imagine Arabs would be closer of a proxy for obvious reasons. But the next part of the sentence is intriguing, at least to me:

    Russians would be as “based” on that question as any in Eastern Europe

    I’m not sure what qualifies for “based” but this question doesn’t seem to get to the meat of it. So for instance, maybe people don’t want their kids marrying fat people or would rather have their daughter marry a Latvian pro ice-hockey player or a Georgian scientist over a Russian street sweeper. But going deeper, what exactly are they willing to do about it? Comparing to post-WW2 America doesn’t seem sound because parts of America actually put their opinion into legal practice with anti-miscegenation laws. I think the better question is, would they be willing to have legal restrictions on these things – because otherwise it’s just opinions; maybe you don’t want your kids getting into goth or heavy-metal lifestyles but kids do a bunch of stuff their parents don’t like.

    For instance, if you ask me; would I like my daughter marrying a non-Muslim – the answer is – no.

    If you ask me; are you willing to support laws to legally annul the marriage if she does – hell yes!

    Peace.

About 1979, there was an emergency in the Young Communist League committee – a group of foreign students (blacks and Arabs) told the dean’s office Soviet girls were racist. Namely, they refused to sleep with them for free. They were told: no, the girls aren’t racist, they’re just decent Soviet Young Communists and don’t put out before marriage. The offended blacks and Arabs replied: no, they put out for their own for free, but with us they’re willing only for jeans and other clothes. And then there was a closed Young Communist League meeting where they were asked to treat brotherly nations with understanding, to not dishonor themselves as Soviet Young Communists but also not provoke an international scandal. I know it from my female friend who lived in the dorm and had a personal talk with one of the leading Young Communists.”

Its the nature of organizations: you won't be able to have "moderate homosexual lobby" without it becoming the "gay lobby", which inevitably will seek outside support in order to advance their agenda. All organizations except explicitly rightist organizations tend drift left - innately leftist organizations drift left even faster. Virtue spiraling is pretty much the norm these days.

    In a democracy, this works even more swiftly, if naturalizing voters is going to give your organization the edge, then that is the correct thing to do for your party. The methods of players are determined by the rules of the game. In this sense, gays are one of the most toxic elements to long-term society since as they do not have children, they do not have any personal need to sacrifice for an undefined future, but rather seek maximal freedom and safety for their activities. This means that they will seek divergent goals from others with families and children.

    You can put gays back to the closets. You can’t do that with with black, brown and yellow people.

    The problem is that you can't. Cultural degeneracy is virtually impossible to reverse. Feminism is equally irreversible. For all practical purposes once you achieve decadence it's permanent. And the birth rate continues to fall. A society that no longer reproduces is doomed. It's just a walking corpse.

    BTW, I want to adress something which I felt was an unspoken assumption of AK. It was also brought up by Swedish_Family. Namely the theory of "creeping liberalism". First feminism -> LGBT -> Multiculturalism. That's the theory.

    But if that is the case, how is this explained?

    https://www.unzcloud.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/map-east-europe-support-for-gay-marriage.png

    Czechia is quite liberal on gay marriage. If this "creeping liberalism" thesis was accurate, how do you square their very strong opposition on refugees (as a strong marker of multiculturalism). The orthogonal example is Russia, which has very strong opposition to gay marriage yet has quite relaxed views on diversity.

    Yes, you have countries like Sweden which is ultra-liberal on both, but there isn't such a clear-cut rule as both AK and Swedish_Family argued. Another historical example would be the US. They had a very strong religious right for a long time, yet opened the gates to non-white immigration in 1965. Taiwan recently approved gay marriage yet have minimal refugee migration and even regular work migration is quite limited. The whole "liberal in one sphere will necessarily creep into the other" is not a clear-cut conclusion. There are too many countries which are either deeply homophobic but are soft on diversity or pro-gay marriage but has quite harsh immigration norms.

    You keep bringing the same point and I like it. Nationalists should try to bring LGBTs into their movement or at least to not treat them as their enemies. It can be a tactical move just like the alliance with the Zionist Islamophobes. Racial pollution in the post-WWII and post-Rwanda world is practically irreversible while gays can always be put back into comfortable closets once social mores change.

    Perhaps on a case by case basis. But two objections. The gay agenda undercuts the family, which is where whites reproduce. Less whites, more miscegenation. There must be a number somewhere about 'critical mass' before miscegenation. Also, gays like novelty, diversity, subversiveness. Multiculturalism is right up their alley.

    I have a couple of gay acquaintances who both independently say they feel "citizens of the world". One wants to raise his 'son' as such. Love of country seems provincial to them.

    I knew a couple of Czech women who were unable to talk about their childhood experiences because at the time the culture was so repressive that people reported even family members. Whereas in Romania I was told academics would go for walks in the park to talk but otherwise life was ok. In Macedonia I was told people felt safe and happy. Different experiences of Eastern Bloc. Maybe CzechSlovak experience left the people wary of strangers, including social scientists waving papers at them.

    As part of Tito’s Yugoslavia, Macedonia was not part of the Eastern Bloc.

    Yeah - that is kind of a stretch. I would imagine Arabs would be closer of a proxy for obvious reasons. But the next part of the sentence is intriguing, at least to me:

    Russians would be as “based” on that question as any in Eastern Europe
     
    I'm not sure what qualifies for "based" but this question doesn't seem to get to the meat of it. So for instance, maybe people don't want their kids marrying fat people or would rather have their daughter marry a Latvian pro ice-hockey player or a Georgian scientist over a Russian street sweeper. But going deeper, what exactly are they willing to do about it? Comparing to post-WW2 America doesn't seem sound because parts of America actually put their opinion into legal practice with anti-miscegenation laws. I think the better question is, would they be willing to have legal restrictions on these things - because otherwise it's just opinions; maybe you don't want your kids getting into goth or heavy-metal lifestyles but kids do a bunch of stuff their parents don't like.

    For instance, if you ask me; would I like my daughter marrying a non-Muslim - the answer is - no.

    If you ask me; are you willing to support laws to legally annul the marriage if she does - hell yes!

    Peace.

    If you ask me; are you willing to support laws to legally annul the marriage if she does – hell yes!

    Hey iffen,

    They didn't care either way. I mean, I did everything by the book - we never dated. I courted my wife and I visited them and asked their permission if I could pursue their daughter for marriage - we don't mess around - we are straight forward on this subject. Any Muslim who does go behind a girl's parents' back should be shunned and immediately disqualified as a potential partner. Everything was out on the table; who I was, my background, what field of study I was pursuing, etc. If they would have refused me, I would have left it alone - I wouldn't have asked whether it was because I was from a Pakistani background or whatever.

    My guess is - though I haven't asked them directly - they appreciated me getting their permission to court their daughter rather than being a sleaze and trying to get into her pants after a night of partying.

    One must live by the code they want others to; I expect nothing less from my potential son-in-law. I've told my daughter, any boy who is not man enough to come directly to me first to ask my permission to court you is automatically out. And if I don't give my permission, I expect him not to go behind my back and pursue it anyway.

    That’s a great question, and I think answering it is what best would help us understand where the true political lines are today.

    My starting assumption is that the end target is a global government. 

    To that end, you have to change/overthrow the existing order in Western societies, best summed up by the pithy ” God, King and Country” + family. These 4 ideas have underpinned the West for centuries.

    - God is taken out when you take out Christianity, along with its stabilizing institutions (churches, schools). Relativism is the contemporary instrument to undermine Christianity. Ridicule aids.

    - ‘King’ was taken out after WWI. Democracy as legitimate government was substituted, with no turning back. But democracy breaks down when citizens are isolated, without subsidiarity. Democracies can be bought.

    - “Country”, understood as one people in  one territory, was slowly substituted by ‘nation-state’. This then evolved into “states”. Multiculturalism is the instrument to undermine country.

    - “Family”, understood as one man, one woman & their children, is an institution peculiar to the West. Its basic cell. Feminism was the first destructive wedge. Gender ideology (LGTB) and ‘white male’ identitarianism is the  coup de grace.

    Multiculturalism DOES NOT “follow” gender ideology or vice-versa. Both are the instruments currently used overthrow ‘the West’. Its central tenets and institutions. The institutions that protect the individual from the tyranny of a Super-State.

    The globalist social contract (if it can be called that), is typified through the semi-globalist institutions (EU, the whole multilateral system) and then pushed at the national level, depending on what is needed. The scenario for Czechs is different than for USA.

    "Considering blacks, I recall an episode from the life of my alma mater, Moscow State University of Economics, Statistics and Informatics. About 1979, there was an emergency in the Young Communist League committee - a group of foreign students (blacks and Arabs) told the dean's office Soviet girls were racist. Namely, they refused to sleep with them for free. They were told: no, the girls aren't racist, they're just decent Soviet Young Communists and don't put out before marriage. The offended blacks and Arabs replied: no, they put out for their own for free, but with us they're willing only for jeans and other clothes. And then there was a closed Young Communist League meeting where they were asked to treat brotherly nations with understanding, to not dishonor themselves as Soviet Young Communists but also not provoke an international scandal. I know it from my female friend who lived in the dorm and had a personal talk with one of the leading Young Communists."

    They were killing Christians especially early years, abortions was spread most of the time, (not sure on faggotry in the early days).

    The SU always had problems with abortions, and it continues to today in Russia, just significant decline compared to the peak years. They still have a hiv/aids thing apparently 1/100 people.

    As for Muslims and Christians…

    The Muslims had had majority Muslims and influence..
    The West is Freemasonic and Jewish money hungry.

    Take your pick Soros, Muslims, faggotry, and cries of antisemitism,
    or Israel, wars, sucking up to USA and cries of antisemitism.

    It will take a miracle for Europe to be normal.

  67. I find it hard to believe that most Italians would be comfortable seeing there children partner up with a black. The countries has been inundated with hundreds of thousands of them, most of whom end up committing serious crimes.

    I remember reading about the mafia gunning down a bunch of nigerians in a baraber shop, there was a lot of outrage not becuase of what happened but because nobody in Italy cared.

    And then there was another incident couple years later where an Italian shop worker killed two blacks in cold blood, again nobody really cared.

    Imagine if that happened in England or some cucked nordic country? There would have been parlimentary debates, anti racists laws passed and more aid money to africa.
