Black protesters celebrate their victory over the University of Missouri. Credit: VDare.com

Capitulation, self-abasement, groveling—are the words even strong enough to describe the actions of Tim Wolfe [Email him] president of the University of Missouri, who has just resigned because of pressure exerted on him by what amounts to a black lynch mob? [Tim Wolfe, University of Missouri System President, Resigns, by John Eligon , New York Times, November 9, 2015] The Chancellor of the University, R. Bowen Loftin, has also been forced out.

The power of social media, a climate of extreme white guilt, the moral hegemony of black issues in America, and the leverage a football team has over a sports-mad community, forced Wolfe, a white man, to resign his position of authority because of incidents he had no hand in creating [How the Missouri football team just took down its university president, by Philip Bump, Washington Post, November 9, 2015]

Hilariously, the 4-5 Missouri Tigers football team wasn’t entirely united in threatening to boycott the upcoming game against BYU unless Wolfe resigned. One white player has been quoted as saying: “”As much as we want to say everyone is united, half the team and coaches—black and white—are pissed. If we were 9-0, this wouldn’t be happening” [Missouri player says many on team don’t support practice boycott, by Sheldon Richardson, ESPN, November 9, 2015].

Had Missouri been in contention for an SEC East title, you can bet your life savings the team would never have joined the Social Justice Warrior campaign to unseat Wolfe. Witness the complete lack of interest in holding the program accountable when its players were accused of rape last year, which the Tigers finished as champions of the Eastern Division [Missouri Football’s Rape Culture “And So On And So Forth” by Jessica Luther, VICE.com, September 9, 2014].

But what exactly forced Wolfe to resign? Well, it smells like just another campus hoax of the type that the Cultural Marxist Left regularly uses to advance its goals of dismantling “white privilege” a.k.a., ultimately, Western Civilization itself:

Racial tensions at the campus have been rising over the last several months. Last month, an excrement-smeared swastika was on a dorm’s new white wall was the catalyst for a hunger strike initiated by Jonathan L. Butler, a 25-year-old graduate student. “I already feel like campus is an unlivable space,” Butler, who is African American, told the Washington Post last month. “So it’s worth sacrificing something of this grave amount, because I’m already not wanted here. I’m already not treated like I’m a human.”

In addition to the swastika incident, Payton Head, the Missouri Students Association president and an African-American, said he was racially abused as he walked on campus. That incident triggered a student protest when university officials did not address it for a week. Last month, a student yelled the N-word at members of the Legion of Black Collegians in a campus plaza while they were rehearsing for a play. [Why Missouri football players are going on strike; university president won’t quit, by Cindy Boren, Washington Post, November 8, 2015]

That’s it? Seriously?

What type of reprobate would use feces to draw a swastika but a lunatic Leftist aiming to stampede the administration into making concessions to their anti-white demands?

What are the odds that Jonathan Butler was himself was responsible for the act that he claims motivated him to start his hunger strike because of the campus is “an unlivable space?” This sort of thing has happened many times before—back in 2004 Sam Francis wrote that

At San Francisco State, the [LA Times] reports, two black students scrawled racial epithets in their own dormitories and then claimed “white racists did it. At Northwestern University, a Hispanic student claimed someone grabbed him, held a knife to his throat and called him a bad name. At Claremont College a professor claimed her car was s meared with anti-Semitic slogans. Police say in all these cases the perpetrator was the alleged “victim”.

Even more absurdly, Payton Head, the black student who claims to be the victim of racial pejoratives, serves as the Missouri Students Association president and was even the 2015 Mizzou Alumni Association Homecoming King. If he’s been oppressed at Missouri, he certainly continues to fall upward.

The kicker for questioning Head on the veracity of being called a “n*gger” comes courtesy of his resume:

When senior Payton Head was in high school, he never won anything. He applied for his homecoming royalty court all four years and never made it once on top 10. That’s why when he heard his name called as the 2015 Homecoming king at Faurot Field, he froze.

“It was really, really a shocker for me to win,” Head said. “I was just thrilled to be on court and serve with such incredible people. Any one of them standing next to me I thought would’ve made an amazing homecoming king or homecoming queen. It was baffling. I didn’t know what to say.”

This was the Missouri Students Association president and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. member’s first time participating in Mizzou Alumni Association’s Homecoming. He had been involved in the Legion of Black Collegians’ separate homecoming celebrations since his freshman year. In fact, he ran for LBC count as a freshman and lost that too.

Head has been an activist for social change since he stepped foot on MU. He joined the Social Justice committee as a freshman — then, it was called the Multicultural Issues committee, but Head changed the name during his sophomore year to reflect the current goals of the committee. Under his leadership, the MSA Social Justice committee was nominated for an Inclusive Excellence Award by the MU chapter of the NAACP and as the Coretta Scott King Organization of the Year in 2014.

[Homecoming King Payton Head talks involvement, social justice and inclusivity: Head’s participation in the Mizzou Alumni Association Homecoming came a cost as he missed the Legion of Black Collegians’ Homecoming events., TheManEater.com, October 20, 2015]

(Wait! How come black students at Missouri (79 percent white and 8 percent black) get to have their own, racially-exclusive homecoming event…ah, fuhgeddaboutit.)

ORDER IT NOW

Note that Head didn’t immediately go to the campus police and report the offense—even though Mizzou police and administrators have a record of reacting to offenses against Political Correctness with unbridled hysteria. Instead, he took to social media and project the encounter, to trigger Social Justice Warriors nationwide. It worked:

The first time someone shouted a racial slur at him on campus, Payton Head was shocked, a little stunned. He grew up on the south side of Chicago in a black community where he was used to being in the majority. He had never had direct racism thrown in his face before.

The second time it happened to him, Head said, he was walking with a friend to get cookies Friday night when a red pickup truck slowed and young people screamed the n-word at him.

But Head is now the president of the students’ association at the University of Missouri.

So he knew what to do: Tell people.

They listened.

His social-media post had been shared well over 1,000 times within a few days, the Columbia Missourian newspaper spread it as well, and the responses were more than he could keep up with.

Many people thanked him for speaking out, with comments like, “Preach, baby, preach!”

A spokesperson for the campus police said that the incident was reported to have happened near campus, not on it. The Columbia Police Department does not have a report of that nature by Head, according to a spokesperson there.

Head thinks his account resonated so widely because “this story is not just something that happens here. It’s not a Mizzou issue. It’s a societal issue. And very few people are privileged to have the voice to speak up that people will listen to.”

[What the student body president did after he was called the n-word — again, by Susan Svrluga, Washington Post, September 16, 2015]

There exists literally no proof that Head was called the dreaded N-word at all, save for his decision to go to Facebook and tell the entire world about it. But in a country where it is racist to even question his claim (there is no burden of proof, because as a black male, Head is beyond rebuke), the poop swastika incident and the 2015 Mizzou Alumni Association Homecoming King’s claim that he was called the N-word have whipped up a storm that has cost the white president of the university his job...for starters.

All the insanity of life in 2015 America is on display in this episode.

I’ve long argued that college football is the opiate of America. We must find a way to break this addiction. The future of the country our children will inherit is far, far more important than our alma mater’s performance in any game.

Paul Kersey[Email him] is the author of the blog SBPDL, and has published the books Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White and Second City Confidential: The Black Experience in Chicagoland. His latest book is The Tragic City: Birmingham 1963-2013.

    There are way too many Americans that are addicted to football. They are fanatics to the exclusion of important issues.

  3. I agree that Wolfe’s treatment is ugly, unfair, ridiculous and symptomatic of a delusional culture, but, please-please stop using the term “cultural marxism”.
    It is inaccurate: marxism has nothing to do with the exploitation of social resentments which political correctness is usually about.
    It distorts reality: the Right has its OWN brand of political correctness.
    And, it employs the same superficial sterotyping which the politically correct so often resort to.

  7. It may be possible that the president took one look around and decided to just bail out before things get even worse. Why hang around and let his name be dragged through the mud by cretins? If he has influential friends in business he may have a fall-back job offer. By leaving before things get really ugly, his name will just disappear from the news and he can quickly get on with his life.

    Now that they’ve gotten what they wanted, where is the team and university? Don’t they look a little ridiculous? He’s gone, now what are they going to protest over? They were just getting it warmed up and he jumped out of the cannibal’s pot.

  9. TheJester says:

    It is becoming clearer that the real goal of the Western diversity movements is not integration of minorities and other victim groups into the White Northern European mainstream (if there still is one); rather, it is looting the material wealth of the White Northern European industrial economies while they still can. What is happening at the University of Missouri is a minor example of that process.

    The minorities and other victim groups insist on their share. They demand that those enjoying “White privilege” cash out and give it to them based on nothing but the fact they exist and feel oppressed by “White privilege”. But they have no intention of participating in or continuing these industrial economies … because collectively they can’t. They can’t because their native cultures are antithetical to the future preference, self-discipline, and rational dispositions that created the Northern European industrial economies in the first place in the fading histories of the Industrial and Post-Industrial Revolutions.

    Does anyone really expect African-Americans or more recent Muslim and other immigrants safely isolated and protected from “White privilege” in their own schools, with their own teachers, with their own culturally-appropriate curriculums, and living in their own insular communities to ever design jet engines, or power grids, or space shuttles … much less work in factories and other industrial complexes. It is all about claiming the base right to consume the products of those economies without participating in their production. It is a grand welfare scheme by another name.

  10. Tiny Duck says:

    The protest from student-athletes and students, because I think we forget that non-athletes also played a role in this, is a great example of pulling pursestrings instead of heartstrings. Mizzou can’t stand to lose football money. We’re talking MILLIONS, especially since bowl games are around the corner. It’s kind of sad that it took potentially losing millions spurred this, and not actual welfare of minority students. You’ve got to get it where you fit in, and if you can fit in a wallet…get in. If we can’t let you see our humanity, we’ll make you see green, or the lack thereof.

    As a graduate of a fellow SEC school, I’m happy for Mizzou. It’s a great step in the right direction. Football is darn near everything at SEC schools.

    I think being Black at a PWI forces you to reconcile: 1) Knowing that your school’s history and traditions are deep-rooted in racism, sexism and homophobia. It’s just one of those conflicts I’ll always have, 2) Knowing your school has a long way to go in terms of diversity and inclusion, and 3) Loving your school in spite of all of that. I love my alma mater, but I also know there’s a lot of changes to be made.

    This is hilarious

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2015/11/08/missouri-protest-list-demands-issued-to-university.html

    I. We demand that the University of Missouri System President, Tim Wolfe, writes a handwritten apology to the Concerned Student 1-­9-­5-0 demonstrators and holds a press conference in the Mizzou Student Center reading the letter. In the letter and at the press conference, Tim Wolfe must acknowledge his white male privilege, recognize that systems of oppression exist, and provide a verbal commitment to fulfilling Concerned Student 1-9-5-­0 demands. We want Tim Wolfe to admit to his gross negligence, allowing his driver to hit one of the demonstrators, consenting to the physical violence of bystanders, and lastly refusing to intervene when Columbia Police Department used excessive force with demonstrators.

    II. We demand the immediate removal of Tim Wolfe as UM system president. After his removal a new amendment to UM system policies must be established to have all future UM system president and Chancellor positions be selected by a collective of students, staff, and faculty of diverse backgrounds.

    III. We demand that the University of Missouri meets the Legion of Black Collegians’ demands that were presented in 1969 for the betterment of the black community.

    IV. We demand that the University of Missouri creates and enforces comprehensive racial awareness and inclusion curriculum throughout all campus departments and units, mandatory for all students, faculty, staff, and administration. This curriculum must be vetted, maintained, and overseen by a board comprised of students, staff, and faculty of color.

    V. We demand that by the academic year 2017-2018, the University of Missouri increases the percentage of black faculty and staff campus-wide to 10%.

    VI. We demand that the University of Missouri composes a strategic 10 year plan by May 1, 2016 that will increase retention rates for marginalized students, sustain diversity curriculum and training, and promote a more safe and inclusive campus.

    VII. We demand that the University of Missouri increases funding and resources for the University of Missouri Counseling Center for the purpose of hiring additional mental health professionals — particularly those of color, boosting mental health outreach and programming across campus, increasing campus-­wide awareness and visibility of the counseling center, and reducing lengthy wait times for prospective clients.

    VIII. We demand that the University of Missouri increases funding, resources, and personnel for the social justices centers on campus for the purpose of hiring additional professionals, particularly those of color, boosting outreach and programming across campus, and increasing campus-­wide awareness and visibility.

    Lies, it’s all lies. Nobody drew anything using feces as a writing instrument, the idea is just so staggeringly absurd. Also, no one called those blacks anything at all. Lots of blacks have discovered that playing the race card pays and so they make things up for their own benefit. This whole thing has been confected out of nothing but some people’s hidden motives.
    Football has certainly become an opiate of the masses. One basic problem with college football is that it’s been conducted in a corrupt environment. Many of these teams are carried through by people who are not really students and everybody knows that. If they could end the corruption and make teams representative of the student body with real, actual students then that could help clean it up. As it is it’s our hired blacks versus your hired blacks, every one of them pretending to be a student when in fact lots of them are just one step ahead of the sheriff. Probably can’t happen though, too much money floating around.

    When this whole thing blows over, the coach who “joined” the movement needs to be fired. I would bet there are other issues bubbling below the surface here. And I would bet that any coach who would “join” such a movement would also suggest or hint at or start such a movement. For what purposes? Who can say? But these are black athletes. Typically they cannot pass even their Freshman year without massive cheating and fraud by the school. Yet they outmaneuvered the school President? Doubtful. Why would these “affletes” who are generally only interested in glory and partying care if the President left the school? A coach or professor is much more likely to have a grudge or something to cover up.

    Also, PK is dead on right college and pro football. Just turn it off. It has corrupted even private Christian schools like TCU with tons of African-style shenanigans. It was once wholesome, but is now foul. Learn when to let go.

    Third, I’ve seen enough student-lead “hunger strikes” to know they are always, 100% b.s. The illegal aliens at a local U who were on a “hunger strike” a few years ago didn’t even bother to hide the fact that they were eating hot dogs, chips and other gas station food brought to them by friends. Everyone saw it, it was blatant. Yet the media still reported it as a hunger strike.

Were police reports even made?

    Likewise, the history of the rebellion of the Confederate States is being removed under the guise that it promotes racism. In reality, it is because of the Confederate history of mobilized resistance to the hegemonic US fascist state. National battlefield memorials, local building grounds, and parks have been sanitized of Confederate symbols thus distorting the history. US administered Ukraine and some NATO countries have carried out this very same sort of cleansing by removing or desecrating Soviet war memorials and cemeteries thereby distorting the history of the war of liberation from European fascism. Where will the sanitizing end as the West’s neo- fascists become more emboldened?

    I’ve always thought that if you could teach a mountain gorilla to be gentle with the other players, and teach him some sort of appreciation for the rules, that you could suit him up he could make a touchdown every single time you gave him the ball. He’s just wipe the opposing players out of his way with a gentle whisk of his arm, perhaps tossing them a few yards in the process, and hooray! Another touchdown!

    Soon he’d be the talk of the sports fans and fathers would be lining up to show their daughters to the young stud and agent$ in expensive suits would be going down on him to get him to sign and he’d be on Nike and Gatorade products and perhaps run for governor.

    Oxford Dictionary: The term Fascism was first used of the totalitarian right-wing nationalist regime of Mussolini in Italy (1922–43), and the regimes of the Nazis in Germany and Franco in Spain were also fascist.

    1) You trust Oxford? Do you take the New York Times as gospel, too?

    2) Your average Coolidge Republican was quite to the right of all these fellows, Franco perhaps excepted.

    3) “corporate fusion of government, banking and industry” sounds awfully leftist to American ears. Like “industrial democracy”. We must be far to the right of Europe.

    On the other hand, we don’t have a state church, like the countries constituting the UK, or the Scandinavians. But is a state church rightwing or leftwing? I’d say left, because to us reactionaries, the real church is over in Rome– or, if you prefer, Constantinople.

    Cultural Marxist is an ok term. Marxism is and always has been about bending reality. Because, according to Marx, all reality is a slave to the economic class structure one resides in.
    Preliminary revolutionary logic was a part of Marx’s ‘economic’ theory. Lenin himself in applying Marxism applied mostly the revolutionary part.
    The Frankfurt school developed Marxism into something Gotffried calls ‘post-Marxism’, basically critical theory which encapsulates and refines the notion of revolutionary logic into revolutionary morality, i.e. everything that is revolutionary is moral.
    A great example of this is Repressive Tolerance by Marcuse.
    Critical race theory sets atop Critical Theory as developed by the Frankfurt crowd and is the primary driver of current grievance industry and their tactics.

    The heuristic here is that Marxist revolutionaries, when they saw how well capitalism was faring, realized a revolution of the proletariat was not going to happen. So they expanded their vision to view the third world and ‘victim’ groups such as queers and minorities as their new revolutionary group to sit in for the proletariat.

    Hence the term Cultural Marxism, which is quite appropriate here.
    Marx was never about the economics. He was about revolution, and that is what we see these losers up to.

    Football is the quintessential American sport/spectacle. It is more popular than all other sports and spectacles combined. Good luck breaking that addiction. What are you going to replace it with?

    Actually the term “cultural Marxism” is an apt description of what influences the current situation.

    Marx, while outwardly paying lip service to democracy, thought that the masses were so negatively influenced by religion and economic status that they were incapable of rational decisions about their own welfare. Therefore decision making could only be left up to the “enlightened” few.

    Marxism at its core was nothing other than a way for a strongly organized minority (?!) to provide additional intellectual support for their own ongoing war against the majority population. Marxism did in fact provide exactly this justification after the overthrow of the nascent democracy and the seizure of power by he Communist Party after the fall of the czar in Russia in 1917.

    What people here aren’t really considering is where these black kids are getting their ideas from. “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) now seems increasingly to be the primary source of what passes for their philosophy. BLM is almost completely funded by George Soros who is also, interestingly enough, probably the biggest individual financial supporter of those who call for open borders.. BLM only became as powerful as it now is because those in control thought it would beneficial to their own much more secretive movement. Only these media controllers had the ability to provide as much positive publicity as the BLM movement received. Those controllers decided that it was to their own benefit, not blacks, to publicize it. If it wasn’t for this media directed propaganda the group would have disappeared as quickly as it appeared.

    Lower class blacks , like these athletes in this story, are increasingly being used like Hitler did with the SA in the early 1930s . The rowdy, threatening hoodlums of the SA provided the muscle that allowed Hitler to solidify his power. Once Hitler decided that his position was secure enough, he purged the SA. That’s what is going to happen here. Blacks, like the Brown Shirts before them, will be used to terrify the white gentiles and keep them in line. Once “those whose names cannot be spoken” assume complete control, the blacks that they now champion will be simply be gotten rid of because they, like the SA before them, will be considered a liability because of their unpredictability and potential violence.

    A further note about professional or semi professional (i.e college) sports. People should be very wary of the passions and outright fanaticism they invoke. In the sixth century AD, the eastern Roman government of Constantinople was almost overthrown when rioting started between the supporters of two different professional chariot teams. Then these “sports fans” turned their attentions elase where and started attacking the the civil authoritiessent out to control them. They then began sacking the city.

    An even further note: the huge amounts of money derived from college sports are not being in the ways most people thin the are. People probably aren’t aware that in the last few decades college professors have become increasingly underpaid and their chances of a comfortable tenured position have become increasingly remote as their jobs are increasingly filled by even cheaper teaching assistants or foreign professors. Many of these increasingly transient professors now make less money from their multiple jobs than many lower public school teachers working in wealthy areas. Nor are these funds being used to lessen tuition fees which only seem to go up at an ever increasing rate. Instead, this money are being diverted over to the fabulously well paid upper bureaucracies of these schools. University boards of chancellors also share in this largess by doing their best to divert money over to the speaking fees or projects of favored (i.e bribe-able) politicians like Hiliary Clinton. Politically connected (and politically correct) professors are also the recipients of these funds in the form of richly endowed research chairs.

    “Cultural Marxism” refers to a fairy tale that political correctness and multiculturalism owe their origin to a certain ingrown Jew cult called the Frankfurt School. (Marcuse, Adorno, Reich, etc.)

    Because, according to Marx, all reality is a slave to the economic class structure one resides in.Because, according to Marx, all reality is a slave to the economic class structure one resides in.

    This is a false statement regarding Marxism. Marx held that the economic class structure of society develops on the basis of a given material reality. You elide the Frankfurt School with Marx only by distorting Marxism.

    You overestimate the importance of the Frankfurt School by an order of magnitude. You evidently pick phrases from the Frankfurt School and ignore the numerous disagreements. Reich, for example, believed homosexuality was a treatable disorder. Some key phrases, such as “liberation” came from converging sources, and Marcuse’s concept of “sexual liberation” was a psychoanalytic concept rather than a sociological project.

    But whatever is said of the Frankfurt School, “cultural marxism” is your misleading characterization of its doctrine.

    If this Black guy grew up on the south side of Chicago, than he should be used to being called the N word directly to his face.

    Marx had the revolutionary idea as well as the ‘reality is tainted by your perception of class’ going on which is the essence of Critical Theory.
    Part of the impossibility of reading Marx, in fact, is because he is constantly pulling this wool over the readers brain.

    The Frankfurt school appears prominently in the most important sociology works of all time. For example, by many rated the most influential work in sociology, Distinction by Bourdieu, Adorno is right there as a citation. It is also the basis for critical race theory, which underlies all black activist activities in this nation. Conflicts within that school are irrelevant to this point.

    Of course the Frankfurt school is not the ONLY influence.

    Fighting off the locals’ frequent home invasions and attempts to poison the water, he built a fine series of barricades around his compound, later naming it Walled-in Pond.

    His last known letter was found buried in a canister under the site where his hut was burned down by the locals. His body was never found. It is believed that he was fevered and very ill when he wrote it, since he promised to return in miraculous forms, including his face appearing on Unitarians’ toast.

The US is now a fascist state if it is anything whether defined by neo- liberalism or neo- conservatism. There is no discernible difference in overall policy.

    Fascist Germany and fascist Italy were financially backed by the ruling elite of corporations and banks and foreign subsidiaries. Anti-capitalist socialists were purged from the German Socialist Workers Party ( NDSP ) leaving only the extreme nationalists.

    Britannica:

    National Socialism attempted to reconcile conservative, nationalist ideology with a socially radical doctrine. In so doing, it became a profoundly revolutionary movement—albeit a largely negative one. Rejecting rationalism, liberalism, democracy, the rule of law, human rights, and all movements of international cooperation and peace, it stressed instinct, the subordination of the individual to the state, and the necessity of blind and unswerving obedience to leaders appointed from above. It also emphasized the inequality of men and races and the right of the strong to rule the weak; sought to purge or suppress competing political, religious, and social institutions; advanced an ethic of hardness and ferocity; and partly destroyed class distinctions by drawing into the movement misfits and failures from all social classes. Although socialism was traditionally an internationalist creed, the radical wing of National Socialism knew that a mass base existed for policies that were simultaneously anti-capitalist and nationalist.

  82. joe webb says:

    looks like all commenters are about on the same page. I did not see mention of the college perfresser, Click, which is probably from Glick, a jewish name, and her calling for “muscle” to muzzle the press, something which totalitarian types always do, particularly communists and of course their latest weapon deployed against the White West, colored folks.

    That weapon of course, is race equality. Jews have regularly attacked the White Christian West, starting from the git-go with the jewish civil war wherein the zealot jews , Macabbees , attacked and killed the Hellenizer Jews, who were arguing for a more comprehensive view of the world, as in the Greece derived Epicurean philosophy which went on to be largely adopted by Rome, and then later Christianity adopted it as well. For those stupidly hostile to the Church…Rome brought the Greco-Roman world to us.

    The argument that Christianity was Jewish, an argument often made by extreme anti-semites, is not true. Arguably the gospels were written by ex-Jews of course, but they had much to be ex about.

    The next major attack on the West was communism, led of course by Jews. Socialism had been partly jewish of course, but was largely a white and European phenomenon, and by the time Bolshevism arose, the Socialist parties had given up on Revolution and become what we today call social-democratic.

    The communist insurgency based itself on Class and class conflict and also added a bit of meth-anphetamine called Dialectical Materialism, an historicist Myth of how society works down thru history. The final state of Humanity would be Humanity Unchained. We saw how that worked out, and still see it in China and N. Korea…fanatically driven by Asian Collectivism.

    The third attack of the Jews was Psychoanalysis, which was whipped up to compensate for the failure of Class conflict and communism to move the masses sufficiently. Like communism’s vanguard Leninist Party, cognate with the chosen people elite notion, Psychoanalysis called for secular priests who would interpret personal angst as sexual in nature, with you know, the quaint bit that all one had to do was understand that the boy child wanted to screw mom and kill dad. etc.

    That failed as well, but it took about 75 years of promotion by cultural marxists, almost all Jews, to fizzle out, but at some psychic cost of course to all concerned, jews too, witness the Jewish movies documenting such absurdity. Never mind Freud’s personal tyranny documented a few years ago by Jeffrey Masson.

    #4 attack.So, the last few decades has seen the Jews, from NYT to jewish activists amongst the New Left, and on to the new Civil Rights Movement, like now in Missouri, and of course the arch demon, George Soros demanding and spending tens of millions to introduce Color into Europe, leading or pushing and funding Black leaders into the current Black Mischief.

    #5 attack. Not to be overlooked with regard to Jewish attacks on the West, has been the Immigration Reform movement that got started about 1910 by Jews, and was finally accomplished on paper in the 1965 Immigration Act (written by Hart and Cellar, two jewish congressmen) and busily ever since flooding the US with stupid and violent immigrants from the Third World.

    So, count them, 5 attacks on the West, all together, with the last three beating along with the constant drumming for Open Immigration of Color, no matter how stupid or violent.

    Let us summarize: 1, the struggle between zealots (macabbees) against their ex-Jewish new Christians to destroy Christianity. 2. Jewish subversion of Christianity in the Reformation. The book written on this is The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit, by E. Michael Jones. 3 . Communism which is now universally recognized as having been led and energized by jewish hatred of the West. 4, Psychoanalysis, which was and is a Jewish attack on the entire Western and White moral system, family, and society…summed up today by lots of folks by the phrase “Cultural Marxism, or Cultural Bolshevism.

    Now we are in the fifth phase, the incitement of third world dummies to destroy the West and the incitement of white liberals to feel guilty over our own white superiority, manifest in everything except football.

    Go figure. Could the Jews have pulled this off without the Achilles’ Heel of Whites…our pathological altruism?. No. So here we are accepting a Jewish State for Jews only in Israel, but being hectored by jews to dissolve ourselves in muddy Humanity., to end the White Race, the Race that has invented everything from technics to humane (a white notion ) social and political institutions.

    Missouri may be the next phase of the Color Revolution, first the ghetto and now the degraded colleges, degraded by very stupid and very angry and useless people.
    Finally, there would appear to be no more tactics left to the jews and their hijacked White market-liberals if this current tactic fails. Therefore they will pull out all the stops.

    No free speech for racists, no place for White men (O I forgot the jewish led feminism…so the family and society wreckers of Feminism have been led , again, by Jews…so make it 6, not 5 distinct phases. of the Jewish war on Whites and Europe.

    As I said earlier, it is hard to imagine a 7th jewish attack, if the direct Racial attack on Whites fails.
    When that fails, the jews will find themselves in big jewish trouble, as Thomas Mann, put it in his novel, Dr. Faustus.
