Jews are going to find it increasingly difficult to ride out front of the Coalition of the Fringes as honorary non-whites. After all, their privilege on virtually every objective measure dwarfs whatever putative benefits gentile whites get from their ‘white privilege’:


Parenthetically, the April spike each year is on account of a federally-recognized couple of days of remembrance.

  1. I’m going to guess that the response will be that they need to increase the persecution of right wing groups because it must be their fault why the noble person of color feels the way they do about the tribe. How they tap dance around Louis Farrakhan is going to be their playbook for when other non-white groups and leaders who are against the tribe speak out.

  2. Making blacks, orientals, and mestizos feel guilty about the sacred six and 6 zeros is going to be a daunting task once whitey is gone.

    Is there a place in Bolivia, Mongolia, or Chad where a few fenced in camps, with just enough electricity to plug in a bar code scanner, could be put up on the down low? Mild climate would be preferable.

    Feminist Tries To Get Progressive Podcaster Fired For Defending White Men

    Feminist says “white men” shouldn’t be considered for the democratic 2020 primary; that pretty much eliminates Jews like Bernie Sanders. White male Jewish podcaster asks if that’s not discriminatory. Gets denounced. Spited female calls his employer. Tattles on him for wrongthink.

    This is already a fracture line in the women’s march, where the Jews are explicitly trying to tell the WoC that their role is optics not policy, and the WoC are having none of it and demanding real power.  Their refusal to disavow Farrakhan has already come up.  Sounds like it could be exploited by putting the right memes in someone’s ear, gnomesayin?

    Women’s march without (((donor))) money = flop.

    Women’s march without WoC = failure for feminism.

    No downside.

    The Womens March would have much more power if they’d put a few True Conservative(tm) tokens in visible positions. Leftists generally haven’ t needed to utilize tokenism, so they left money on the table here.

    The above would violate the tenents of intersectionality, that needs to have the cis het white Christian patriarch as the demon. That exposes the long-term (decades, century) weakness of intersectionality, its need to have people like us be the enemy to unite against. This will be interesting when California elections end up being Dem vs Dem in nearly every district. The best thing GOP voters can do in that state is to emigrate, and the best thing the CA GOP can do for its national counterpart is to dissolve.

    The lack of staying power by either BLM, the Womens March or David Hogg is not of much long term significance. The power is not in these organizations, as much as it is in the hands of the university and media gatekeepers. Where one movement fails, another is quickly constructed. By contrast, DSA actually intends to operate as a real movement with regular meetings by dues-paying members in local chapters. That could be a real threat to the Dem donor class, as slacktivist groups like the Womens March can’t self-sustain.

    The women’s march crystallizes the theory that when left wing groups march, it’s meant to be a victory lap than to achieve tangible goals. They initially organized thinking that Hillary was going to be the winner and unsurprisingly it falls apart when the wrong person gets elected.

    Although how it managed to fall apart is a sign of what a one-party America is going to look like: Jews on top and everyone else on the bottom. However with minorities being empowered by the tribe, they’re fully expecting to share in the spoils of defeating whitey. Little do they know that their role is just for optics and accept the few crumbs that get kicked over to them.

    Once Republicans are no longer able to win national elections thanks to demographics, the cracks are going to show and then burst. 2020s and 2030s may be hell for conservatives but 2040s and on could see a revival of white people in politics for that reason.

    It is notable that the US Congress passed the “Days of Remembrance ” bill garbage back in 1979 . Marks the time where the “Holocau$t” started being pushed in the media and when the dogma started infecting the academic field of actual history, to the now current extermination of all other history except to say evil white people in history, which is the same thing.

  9. Regarding the title of this post, I’ve long wondered about that 2% estimate (of Jewish population in the US). Is it supposed to represent the number who practice Judaism, or who are of Jewish descent? (There are a lot more of the latter than the former.) Either way, how was it arrived at?

    It has long impressed me that the largest reservoir of anti-Semitism in the United States can be found in the black community. Not only is there Farrakhan, but also Jesse Jackson (of “Hymietown” notoriety), and Al Sharpton, who played a key role in the Crown Heights riots, the closest thing this country has experienced to a pogrom (in that case the “Black Hundreds” were actually black!). These black leaders have significant followings. Despite this, the ADL has mostly turned a blind eye to them.

    Any white politician of comparable prominence who said or did anything approaching what they have would be driven from public life, his name brought up only for the purposes of horripilating liberals and tarring the right by association.

    That’s what I was envisioning. A right wing strongman like Bolsonaro to emerge from the rubble of white conservatism to take advantage of the infighting between the various minority and interest groups when hating whites is no longer enough. It’s going to take a couple of decades of pain to wake the white normies out of their slumber. Then the American Bolsonaro is able to cobble together enough hispanics and asians who realize America was better when it was a white country instead of a multicultural paradise.

    We should be agreeing and amplifying here. Whenever someone IRL says something to me about liking Sanders or Biden, I respond with something like “really, another old white guy?” It doesn’t even make sense in given that it’s been since 2004 that the Dems ran a white male on the top of the presidential ticket, but it still makes them squirm.

  14. @Rex Little

    I get it from the GSS, which also aligns well with what R-I regularly shows. In both cases, those ask about religious affiliation. But just 31% of these ‘religious’ Jews say they are sure God exists, compared to 74% of Protestants and 63% of Catholics. Iow, a lot of irreligious ethnic Jews are being counted in the religious categorization.

  17. This is why the Jews not only hold the megaphone, but also own the megaphone. It’s their narrative, they’re just not self-aware enough to realize that the only story they know how to write is a farcical tragedy.

    The women’s march crystallizes the theory that when left wing groups march, it’s meant to be a victory lap than to achieve tangible goals.

    It also bolsters the argument that negro rioting is an expression of power and not an act of despair.

  20. @gman

    As America becomes less European, it makes sense that an historical European event would be googled less over time.

    Salient point. It also illustrates how little the Jews know about the negroes (and mesoamericans). With the nation in full blown negro worship, we will see ascendency of the negro conviction that Jews are simply superwhites. The negro is not one for subtle nuance, if it looks white it is white, so the Jews’ ability to control the narrative will only backfire as most Jewish schemes ultimately do – “who dese crackas tink dey foolin? Dey’s da wust crackas of all. Deys be habbin all dat money.” Look no further than Farrakhan or the new imbroglio with Lebron James for proof.

    Maybe it’s the worship of a punitive YHWH, but Jews seem the only group more suicidal than their Yeshuan offshoots. Their entire history is one of inviting (and receiving) punishment that was completely avoidable.

  21. @Audacious Epigone

    If the figure is based on self-identified religious affiliation, it surely understates the number of people who are ethnically (or racially, if you consider Jews as non-white) Jewish. There are many who are completely non-religious and would check the “None” box.

    I wonder to what degree this current PC tumult foisted upon society is the result of the 2% trying to maintain their authority in a diversifying country, one that is no longer showing the same acquiescence to their leadership as they used to.

    To illustrate, check out the recent saga of David Pakman. He’s a Jewish male YouTuber who merely pointed out to one of these ascendant majority-types that automatically excluding white males like Bernie Sanders from the 2020 primary might be the wrong approach … and racist. She publicly attacked the guy and then called his employer and tried to get him fired, ostensibly for hate speech or mansplaining.

    Consider the following trends and events and ask yourself if there might not be some kind of overarching theme:

    1. Continual attacks on Pewdiepie, a gentile, by the mainstream media (WSJ, WaPo, Vice). Felix (Pewdiepie) is a popular YouTuber who is becoming something of a folk hero to the gentile youth. Importantly, he doesn’t seem to be overly responsive to the media’s personal attacks, as he often brushes them off or pokes the bear back in response. Neither does his audience seem to care, which I’m sure the 2% find alarming.

    The geneses of these attacks came from an incident years ago where he dressed as a Nazi – obviously intended as a joke. Of course, the 2% came down on him and tried to convince his young audience that he is anti-Semitic. This is disingenuous, though. Dressing like an SS officer to make jokes is common in Asian manga and was once common in the United States as well. Here’s a funny clip from the Carol Burnett show where a character dresses as a Nazi to interrogate a WW2 allied prisoner:

    Obviously, Felix didn’t do anything others haven’t done before and the intention was to be humorous, not offensive or bigoted. The mainstream media launched a ferocious attack on him in response, getting one of his YouTube programs canceled in the process. However, his audience came to his defense and now he’s more popular than ever. There are people subscribed to him just to show their support, even if they hate his content. This must scare the hell out of the Ruling Class.

    2. Sarah Silverman’s antics. Once edgy (back when the democrats were in charge and they were firmly in the hands of the 2%), she’s now an advocate for censoring jokes and towing the line. Why? Well, she’s very openly Jewish and ethnocentric, so it is reasonable to assume this may be influencing her. Consider…

    She publicly polices jokes so she and tribe can be seen as being on side of the emerging non-2% majority. She extols the virtues of not telling any edgy jokes that might offend said majority. She has a bizarre woke television program where she sort of attempts to make nice with conservative whites (the youth of which are now questioning their rulers all over the internet). She’s urged fellow Jews in the past to vote against Republicans in Florida based purely on ethnic interests and affiliation. She has made a recent claim that republicans are NOT more oppressed than gays* (a powerful group in the media and finance world) – an attempt to put the 2% back on the top of the regressive stack by showing loyalty to those with power.

    *Obviously wrong. Are gays being ruined because they aren’t baking cakes for religious extremists? Are gays fired for donating to the wrong political causes they way that Mozilla board member was? Did Jimmy Kimmel have to apologize for calling Trump voters meth heads or did Brad Pitt have to apologize on behalf of his mother who said something gays didn’t like? Are gays barred from hosting the Oscars for making a joke about straits/cis-genders a decade or so ago – and even after they apologized? It’s true in the last incident that Kevin Hart isn’t a republican, but that doesn’t make it any better. It makes it worse. These people can even destroy a funny, popular black guy when they need to. Who exactly is “oppressed” here?

    3. The ADL’s participation in YouTube’s trusted flagger program, an occurrence that started just few years ago around the time of Trump’s election. This is doubly bad when you stop to consider that the ADL’s mission involves the protection of a foreign country – Israel (and Jews broadly). Why is this organization allowed to police the free speech of Americans? Well, they shouldn’t be, but it’s apparent why they do anyway: they want to serve as gatekeepers for acceptable conversation; presumably, they want to prohibit or limit speech that might run counter to their tribe’s interests.

    4. The Israel lobby’s efforts to pass unconstitutional anti-Israel boycott laws in congress and in state legislatures. Once established, these laws could set a precedent that allows for wider criminal and civil punishments aimed at Americans who challenge the 2% domestically or members of their ruling coalition. Christians, whites, … even black comedians or sports stars who step out line as we’ve seen with Kevin Hart.

    5. Support for unlimited immigration. It’s a way for the American 2% to advertise their worth and loyalty to the new emerging majority, the logic being that their control and immense wealth and privilege will go unnoticed and uncorrected as this majority attacks the former majority.

    6. The use of antifa front groups to doxx 2% critics and get them fired, deplatformed from social media, polite society, and payment processors like PayPal and Patreon.

    7. BLM. The 2%’s NY-LA-DC media axis engaged in probably the worst racial animus stoking campaign I’ve heard of since the original Birth of a Nation. One might interpret this as an attempt to rally minorities of the ascendant majority to the banner of the 2% against the gentiles who were trying to take back their country in 2016. The consequences were devastating: mass deplatforming, media censorship, a climate of fear and hate, and a massive 23% increase in the murder rate in black cities.

    This should scare any gentile American. This 2% have shown they will escalate to a tremendous degree to maintain their ruling privileges. What else will they do in the future? They are already busy placing limitations on free speech through anti-BDS laws.

    8. Deference to the Holocaust narrative seems to be waning. Thus, we get Hollywood celebs attacking members of various women’s marches for innocuous comments on Israel.

    9. Several Muslims have now been elected to congress. They support BDS. There seems to be growing support for BDS overall and that may be represented in future congressional elections. I imagine some people are getting nervous about now.

    Taken together, one might interpret recent changes in the culture and political climate as an alien elite desperately trying to maintain control, even if they have to employ immoral or blatantly unAmerican means to do it.

    This reminds me of speeches by David Irving in the late 1980s and early 1990s, ie the time just after the Zündel trial (rather an embarrassment for the ‘exterminationists’, particularly Raul Hilberg, who refused to take part in the second Zündel trial, although the verdict went against Zündel), Leuchter Report, and later the David Cole video, etc — in some of his talks you can hear Irving confidently and matter-of-factly telling his audience how he privately advises Jewish friends that ‘the game is up’ — all the stories about soap made from the fat of murdered Jews, shrunken heads of Jews, lampshades made from the skin of Jews, etc have been either shown to be or are now widely accepted as false — so it is just a matter of time before the entire ‘Holocaust’ gas chamber story is exposed.

    Needless to say, Irving wildly underestimated the power of Jews and their allies, people who went on to basically destroy his career — later lowlights were his arrest and imprisonment in Austria, and the libel trial against Deborah Lipstadt — when he passes, all of his dedicated research and writing will barely get a mention — he will be smeared as a ‘Holocaust denier’ even in death — watch and see.

    There is a narrative, bordering on a trope, in our movements that in the absence of white conservatives that the intersectional coalition will rip itself apart. I’m quite fond of it. The Jews are the classic “middleman minority” or “market dominant minority”. But the leftist coalition is increasingly running out of Jews, so it is stuck with people with slight Jewish ancestry to the point where Sephardic ancestors centuries past is now qualifying. What it is not running out of is Jewish donors, whose foundations can afford to put large numbers of otherwise hostile and competent PeeOhCee on the payroll.

    Heartiste/Roissy’s phrase “Diversity+Proximity=War” has a lot of stock here, but should be rewritten as “Empire > War=Proximity+Diversity”. The vague outlines of the Jewish-left strategy is to break down white ethno-religious consciousness, and replace it with progressivism. In that visage, “Wokeness” will substitute what they see as “whiteness”. There’s a reason you don’t see any subversion of black/hispanic/asian churches, while people like Russel Moore are propped up. Will this function as a worthy imperial ideology, I have my doubts. But this is the direction that Conservatism Inc donors want to push the base towards. And if “Woke Conservatism” becomes a thing in the 2020s, things are not looking good for us.

    Interestingly, blacks have not entirely behaved as some of us expected with the end of the Obama years. Younger blacks did appear to tilt a bit towards Trump in ’16 than their elders, off of a lower turnout as well. But this seems extinguished with Trump’s cringe-worthy Boomer attacks on the sportsballers. Some of us predicted that blacks would try to sell their influence to the highest bidder, given that 9-1 margins for the Dems didn’t deliver. In contrast, blacks, particularly women appear even more devoted to the Democrats than ever before. Whether this will sustain their position within the intersectional hierarchy remains to be seen.

    Unlike some here, I don’t put much value in “ethnostate” ideas, and even support for partition while desirable might still be a pipe dream. I am most partial to a Singapore PAP-style government that uses an implicit white identity alongside mega-pandering to non-whites via “parachuted candidates”. I think we are better off creating a cultural “Eurocentrism” that encourages Hispanics and hapas to identify with Western heritage. I value organizing all of the anti-Poz factions into a single party, over the cringing Islamophobia of the earlier generations. Immigration restrictions are most viable on labor/environmental grounds, cultural grounds less so. The more important policy is a “demographic reset” that favors fertility by high-income graduates, while suppressing it among the underclass via cultural conservatism.

    The “civil war” and “ethnostate” ideas should not be taken seriously, they are less viable than “Back to Europe”, “Eurosiberia”, “Eurozionism” and even “EuroMars”.

    One way I suspect it plays out is that there are quite a few people with Jewish-sounding surnames which get (((tagged))) when commenters on sites like this talk about them, but who don’t self-identify as Jewish, care nothing about Israel, and are not part of the 2%.
