    The SPLC's 2016 fiscal year started November 1, 2016 and ended October 31, 2017 and it was a doozy. Gifts, grants, contributions, and membership fees jumped from a healthy $50 million in the year leading up to Trump's election to almost $133 million in the 12 months of the Trump Era. As usual, Morris Dees'...
  • @Enochian
    It would be a shame if some of the thousand or so organizations listed by the SPLC as "hate groups" launched a lawsuit against it, claiming the listing was false, damaging and malicious. Who knows how much of that $450 million could be lost in punitive damages?

    Who knows how much of that $450 million could be lost in punitive damages?

    Very little, given both the kind of numbers and quality of lawyers the SPLC would have in such suits, and the nature and biases of most of our courts and judges.

    All I can dig up are claims that at Charlottesville there were chants of "Jews will not replace us," but I cannot find any videos of it. The phrase associated with the anti-immigration side is "You will not replace us." This derives from a translation of a saying from French anti-immigration activists. Could someone have misheard "Jews" for "You" in that phrase? I'm sure there were many anti-Jewish skeptics there, you didn't need a ticket and photo ID, and undoubtedly some antisemites, and maybe as an inprovisation someone said at some point "Jews will not replace us." It doesn't make much sense, since the phrase refers to numbers, and not even antisemites think Jews will be a majority in any conceivable future.

    My provisional conclusion is four Pinocchios for your claim that Charlottesville's main thrust or major sub-thrust was antisemitic, with "long columns of Nazis chanting hatred of Jews."

    It doesn’t make much sense, since the phrase refers to numbers, and not even antisemites think Jews will be a majority in any conceivable future.

    This is a confusion of meaning relating to the variability of the verb “replace”; it can mean “to take something’s place” or “to put something into something else’s place” — when I replace an ink cartridge in my printer, I don’t squeeze myself down into the machine, do I?

    So the statement makes sense if you interpret it in the second sense, with Jews driving our displacement by other peoples: “Jews will not replace us [with Hispanics, etc.]“

    Peter Beinart’s Forward article:

    “Replace you? Where, behind the counter at Wendy’s? We’re successful, industrious, upper-middle class. You’re the dregs of society. Replace you? Don’t kid yourselves. When it comes to America’s class hierarchy, we replaced you and your kind long ago.”
     
    You know Beinart was dying to say "upper class" rather than "upper-middle class" but knew that might look bad to the goyim.

    Incidentally, the first photos and videos were published in Britain's Daily Mail and showed a fairly normal-looking group of white males. By the next day the MSM focused exclusively upon a few freakish outliers which better supported the Narrative.

    , @Anonymous
    Yes, you're right, the meaning could be replace us with yourselves, or with others. In the latter sense the agents would be the so-called elites, and I suppose to some the elites may seem to be mostly Jewish. But I'd still like to see video where "columns" of people were chanting "Jews will not replace us," or anything else explicitly mentioning Jews at Charlottesville, instead of just the odd smart-ass. But even a video of the odd smart-ass would be a start.

    Remember when Trump spoke of thousands of people celebrating 9/11 on rooftops, and he backtracked to an article about a barbeque of a dozen people who probably weren't celebrating 9/11? And then in his denial he supposedly mocked the writer of that article? And then that became a claim in the media and by his opponents that in general and repeatedly Trump "mocked the disabled"?

    These stories start with kernels of truth or non-truths, and then grow. I think the Charlottesville columns/Jews thing is bogus. That's all. I think that the people exagerating and passing on the stories, urban legend-style, would say, when confronted with the lack of evidence, "Who cares, fake but true."

  • From the Washington Post: Trump immigration plan could keep whites in U.S. majority for up to five more years By Jeff Stein and Andrew Van Dam February 6 at 10:15 AM Email the author President Trump's proposal to cut legal immigration rates would delay the date that white Americans become a minority of the population...

    White Americans, welcome to the club of being asked, ‘Where are you really from?’

    Last week, the U.S. Census Bureau revealed its proposed questionnaire for the 2020 Census in advance of a March 31 deadline for its delivery to Congress for review. The updated format did not accommodate many suggestions made since 2010. It doesn’t ask about citizenship status (despite a request to do so by the Trump Justice Department) and won’t include a separate Middle Eastern and North African category in its question about race.
     

    But there are some key changes to the questions about race and ethnicity. In particular, black and white respondents will be asked to provide specific information about their origins. Rather than just marking a single race, respondents will be prodded for a bit more information: For the text box under the “White” checkbox, the census instructions helpfully state: “Print, for example, German, Irish, English, Italian, Lebanese, Egyptian, etc.”
     

    Still, this change is a good thing — especially for white Americans.

    Why? On a basic level, it could be a welcome exercise in empathy. You’re offended? Confused?
     
    Neither, I should think. After all, White people love to talk abut their ancestry. That's one of the reasons why 23andMe is so popular.

    But on a broader scale, this new question could be a step toward dismantling the binary racial categories that have held America back since its founding. By asking whites to consider whence their supposed “whiteness” derives, the census may begin to help break down our country’s persistent belief in whiteness as some monolithic norm.
     
    Dunno. Seems to me that it will further solidify White identity. After all, what else do you call someone who is half-German , half-Irish? Half-Italian, 25% Polish, and 25% Greek? What about some siblings that I know who are 25% English-Scots, 25% Ashkenazi, 25% Finnish, and 25% Italian?



    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/white-americans-where-are-you-really-from/2018/02/02/dc324fb2-0843-11e8-b48c-b07fea957bd5_story.html?utm_term=.a68e04cbab1b

    >Why? On a basic level, it could be a welcome exercise in empathy. You’re offended? Confused?

    On the contrary, most white Americans-since like most Americans in general, they are not upper-middle class leftists who make well over six digits, and thus don’t obey the same norms as most of our cultural elites-are quite happy to talk about family ancestry and are flattered if asked, since most of the time, nobody bothers to take an interest. That doesn’t change the fact that they don’t view it as anything more than “interesting facts”, and view themselves as, well, “American”, with no further identifiers in day-to-day practice.

    As I’ve said before: making white people more aware they are white is going to make them less compliant to political correctness, not more, and is going to make white identity politics more acceptable to them, not less, as current trends in American society continue. These people are too tactically dumb to parody.

    The people in Washington want Washington to be the Capital of the Global Empire, and if they have to give up the American citizenry’s rule of the old American republic to achieve that, well, that’s a sacrifice they are willing to make on your behalf.
     
    I don't think the American citizenry is just incidental as a roadblock to the plans of the Globalists. It is specifically this white middle class with a background of love for liberty and rule-of-law that scares these people. There are middle classes still in European countries, Japan, China, etc. but none of them have this background of having the gall to think that people in governments work for them, as Americans still do. They have got to beat it out of us, or replace us.

    It's easy to think that it's just The Party's Red leaders wanting the cheap labor and the Blue leaders wanting the votes that are the main issues. That's all true, but behind it all are people that indeed find the American middle class the last impediment to a Global Empire, with nobody on the outside to influence the population with silly ideas like freedom and liberty.

    Can't we put a tax on out-of-country tweets, like we used to do with phone calls? Anything to stick it to Mr. Quesadilla there.

    At the root of our crisis is the belief, on the part of millions of “conservatives,” that the U.S.A. is indivisible and sacred, and that we need a “strong central government.” Until this quasi-religious lie is thoroughly rejected, millions of these so-called “conservatives” will watch in paralyzed fear and bewilderment as they become enemies of this “strong central government” in a territory they believed was their birthright.

    The typical attitude of the average boomer conservative, and younger pseudo-boomers, is reverence for the military and "muh Constitution". I've never witnessed a boomer become teary-eyed over Alexander Hamilton's vision of the federal government. The edgier boomer might say something about "states rights" and might even say it was the cause of the Civil War. Boomers are frequently unaware of how tone-deaf they sound to blacks.

    Even the cuckolded (closeted?) Rick Perry has jokingly made secessionist remarks.

    --

    I was surprised that a bigger exodus of Boomers didn't happen after the NFL protests, I would credit Villenueva of the Pittsburgh team for mitigating some of the damage. The image of a military veteran player "defying" the protest in favor of "patriotism" touched the emotional nerves of many boomers.

    The conservative response to the kneeling was laughably bad, as Kapernick & co. were called "unpatriotic" and "disrespecting the flag". Very few people called Kapernick an "Islamist" "Castro-loving commie" or "Anti-White".

    The worst examples of Boomerism came from those saying the "players had no idea what they were protesting". Also cringe-worthy was those saying "the players should protest off-the-field".

    The even more egregious anti-white comments from NBA stars LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Spurs coach Greg Popovich never attracted the scrutiny and boycotts they deserved.

    This neatly explains why I will never, ever vote Democrat, not even for dogcatcher. The Democratic Party is completely given over to anti-white, anti-male identity politics. The idea that the leader of the House Democrats and the former Speaker could so easily sneer out "white guys" as as a derogatory epithet, insulting her own Whip in the process, is incredible.

    The fact that she would say it in the context of allowing untold numbers of blacks and browns from Third World shitholes into this country is even more astounding.

    It's crystal clear that the Democrats simply hate people like me... what I can't fathom is there remain white men out there who will still vote Democrat, somehow thinking that aiding and abetting their own political and cultural extinction is a morally superior position. How do you explain that? Stockholm Syndrome? I dunno.

    At least Damore was never brought up on racism charges because he refused to have sex with blacks.

    No wonder they work such long hours. With all those endless meetings and chat room discussions they need the extra time to get any work done.

It’s getting to the point where the ‘mainstream’ zeitgeist is revolting to a lot of white ‘normies.’ More and more regular white people are thinking, and increasingly saying: “Go be non-white, or go be a degenerate freak, somewhere else.” Many whites in general are waking up to the fact that it’s a matter of existence and survival:

    So what? So what if more and more “whites in general are waking up”? Simply being aware of a problem does not constitute a solution, and is meaningless if those who have become aware have no solution within their reach. Because it doesn’t matter how much us “regular white people” find the zeitgeist revolting and want the degenerate freaks and hostile foreign cultures to go elsewhere, there’s nothing we can do about it.

    I am not a great deal older than 27 (or whatever age he is in 2018), and I do recognize that the left doesn't play fair. It's who/whom all the way down with them. I understand that beating a dishonorable opponent can require acting dishonorably. But 27YO seems to be completely unscrupulous. A good person feels bad when he has to do bad things. And more to the point, in this case, it should not be difficult to find evidence that Google has acted discriminatorily towards white males.

    And more to the point, in this case, it should not be difficult to find evidence that Google has acted discriminatorily towards white males.

    So what? According to our ruling elites, and thus our courts, acting discriminatorily towards white males, especially those who are insufficiently Leftist, is perfectly a-okay. And that’s almost certainly what’s going to happen. We’ll find plenty of evidence of Google being anti-white, anti-male, etc., and the court will dutifully rule — wrapped up in suitable sophistical verbiage — that none of it constitutes a “hostile work environment” because white, male, etc. aren’t “protected classes”, and therefore that discriminating against them is perfectly legal.

Simpler rides can be captured and redeployed by whoever wants ‘em. Happens all the time to expensive hardware in war zones. Also, BigDog robots and weaponized drone swarms haven’t been proven in combat.

    There are however, a shit ton of ‘longbows’ and ‘arrows’ in the hands of modern American civilians. And the modern longbows are far easier to use than the ancient kind—one need not be a professional soldier to do what English bowmen did to French armor at Agincourt.

    Here is Bond/Milan's explanation of the title of her first romance novel "Proof by Seduction:"

    ABOUT THE TITLE
    There’s a method of mathematical proof called a “Proof by Induction.” Induction is a method of logical thinking, and it’s closely releated to another kind of logical thinking (deduction). The scientific method (please discard all that hypothesis/test crap you may have learned in junior high; it is wrong and insulting, as many junior high teachers think that “testing” a hypothesis means proving it is right, rather than trying to prove it wrong, which results in some horrible misunderstandings) itself is a method of inductive reasoning. The basic idea is: Observe once. Observe again. Repeat observations. The more you observe something, the more likely it is that you can predict future behavior. Thus: The sun rose yesterday. It rose the day before yesterday. And so forth and so forth; we can conclude that it is very likely to rise tomorrow. Inductive reasoning is the essence of scientific inquiry.

    And that’s where the title Proof by Seduction comes from. It combines both the hard rigor and finality of proof with the languid sensuality of seduction. As an added bonus, it’s an awful pun that will make scientists the world over glare at me and stalk off in disgust. I did not mention this little tidbit to anyone while the book was on submission, because I was pretty sure that if I told them that the title was great because it was a horrible scientific pun that nobody would get, they would change it instantly to something less dorky. Now I’ve snuck it by them, and it is too late! Mu ha ha!

    The nitpicky amongst you will note that Gareth, as a scientist, really only employs the method of inductive reasoning, not ever a proof by induction. This bothered me to no small extent, but ultimately “Proof by Seduction” is a much, much better title than “Proof by Seductive Reasoning” and elegance won out over the desire to have an arcane pun that was both arcane and nitpicky.

    Mother Nature stood in the way when the Greeks laid down the foundations for science, mathematics, philosophy – the systems needed for conquering and mastering and understanding the world. I guess Mother Nature was peeved at the Chinese and Japanese and decided to give the Europeans an upper hand.

    Mother Nature stood in the way when the Industrial Revolution took off in England. Mother Nature was again peeved at the Chinese. For example, before the Chinese Exclusion Act of the USA, the Chinese were working with whites on the railroads. When they were expelled, did they go back and turn China into an industrial power with the knowledge they gained in the West? No.

    Mother Nature stood in the way of Japan becoming an industrialized country. She let the shogunate close off Japan. Mother Nature again gave her European offspring the upper hand by allowing Capt. Matthew Perry to overthrow the shogunate and force Japan to modernize.

I would remark to myself "Good thing they live in a socialist system that suppressed individual achievement, otherwise they would dominate the world, economically, and, perhaps, otherwise."

  • “Yet the intellectual consensus that brought us to this chasm remains intact. Proposed remedies among mainstream thought leaders rarely go beyond an invocation of the problem of inequality, and a bit more focus on compensating the losers.”

    Yet if one reads the rest of the article, it becomes clear that Rodrik is still pushing this same old-same-old. His ostensible re-evaluation of the function of the nation-state is really just a hazy call to figure out exactly how to use the nation-state to more efficiently integrate local communities into the globalist borg. Nation-states are good if and only if they can be turned to advancing the Great Global Project, bad if they represent anything beyond a mechanism to adapt diverse local cultures to said economic utopia.

    And N.B., as the article makes very clear, nation-states have nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with history, people, or culture. Every nation-state a proposition nation:

    “The best definition of the nation remains that of Abbé Sieyès, one of the theorists of the French Revolution: ‘What is a nation? A body of associates living under one common law, and represented by the same legislature.’ Ethno-nationalists, with their emphasis on race, ethnicity or religion as the basis of nation, have it backward. As the historian Mark Lilla at Columbia University put it recently: ‘A citizen, simply by virtue of being a citizen, is one of us.’”

    By the end of the article it is clear that he is still clinging to precisely the same blinkered “globalist mindset”, and the same tired “solutions”, that he made a pretense of setting out to criticize at the beginning [my emphasis]:

    “Of course, policy failures – for example, protectionism – do occur in all of these areas. But these reflect poor domestic governance, not a lack of cosmopolitanism. They result from the inability of policymakers to convince domestic constituencies of the benefits of superior choices, from political capture by powerful interests, or from unwillingness to make adjustments to ensure that most domestic groups do indeed benefit. What gives economic nationalism its deservedly bad name is not the pursuit of the national interest per se. It is the reliance on remedies that serve yet another group of special interests – protectionist lobbies or nativist groups.”

    Lol. “How do we compensate the losers, and convince them that it’s all for the best in the best of all possible worlds?” Get yer fresh policy insights right here!

    And double lol: “…political capture by powerful interests…remedies that serve yet another group of special interests – protectionist lobbies or nativist groups”. How can we use nation-states to protect poor, powerless, altruistic promoters of unilateral free-trade, open borders, and mass migration from those self-serving “nativist groups” and “protectionist lobbies”?

    I’ve long been saying that in [the USA], the greatest thing that could ever happen is if a uh [Chinese man] descended from the heavens to [be in charge].
     
    Like your immigration stance, your oh-so-rational proposal conveniently ends up with your own ethnic group taking over the USA. As long as we're fantasizing solutions for the white-NAM problem in the US, let's posit that the greatest thing that could ever happen would be if a law were passed that revoked the citizenship of everyone who immigrated since 1990, immigration laws were enforced, and the culture went back to not valorizing blacks. That's all that would need to happen.

    You and Jack "I'm-against-immigration-except-for-smart-Russians-who-happen-to-be-comprised-of-many-Jews-and-hey-what-do-you-know-my-family-is-Russian-Jews" D. should put your heads together and find a less transparent way of promoting yourselves.

    No, contrary to popular opinion here I’m not pushing for any particular immigrant group to take over the United States. Generally speaking I support the nation-state and consider myself a traditional nationalist. I think countries should exist first and foremost for the benefit of their own citizens. I don’t think the United States particularly needs more immigrants, but if we are going to let people in, it might as well be based on a sane immigration policy favoring skilled immigrants. Various other countries such as Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. have such immigration policies in place.

    Chinese Americans are something like 5 million out of the 320 million plus people in this country, so we’re talking about barely more than 1.5% of the entire population, which seems pretty minimal to me. Even more so when you consider the large base population of over 1380 million from which this population is drawn from. This idea that Chinese Americans are overwhelming America may have something to do with the disproportionate impact that Chinese Americans have in this country in quantitative academic and STEM areas, more so than their actual underlying numbers, which as I’ve pointed out are fairly small.

    Since I live in the United States, I would rather not see the country turn to shit by virtue of blacks, Hispanics and whites basically tearing each other apart and lighting the entire thing on fire. So I’ve simply advocated for adopting some common sense and discipline that traditionally has tended to be embodied by our East Asian neighbors across the Pacific.

But which group will have a larger effect on our culture, on elite opinion, and on politics? The former.

    You honestly think the House would impeach Trump for dismissing Comey without cause? Here's a news flash: presidents don't need cause. We're not going through the Andy Johnson thing again.

    But even if Trump needed cause, representatives would be laughed out of office for picking Comey over their own president.

    If it was an effort to impede investigation, good luck proving it. I know the House doesn't need to prove anything, but they'd be way out in Speculation Land. Without an oar, too, because Trump waited until he had plausible cause.

    And I don't get what you mean by thrown out on his ass in a needlessly humiliating way. What, he didn't do the honorable Washington thing and let him resign? Pfft. That would've been the same media circus no matter how Comey was fired.

    You honestly think the House would impeach Trump for dismissing Comey without cause? Here’s a news flash: presidents don’t need cause. We’re not going through the Andy Johnson thing again.

    The President may be able to dismiss without cause but if the theory that the President can be impeached for obstructing justice holds, then there may be some causes for which the President may not be able to dismiss some officials.

    From the first article of impeachment against Nixon passed by the a House Judiciary Committee (the sole precedent we have on point):

    4. interfering or endeavouring to interfere with the conduct of investigations by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, and Congressional Committees

    We never got as far as a trial in Nixon’s case, but that article would certainly seem to include the Saturday Night Massacre.

    But even if Trump needed cause, representatives would be laughed out of office for picking Comey over their own president.

    I take it you’re assuming the Republicans will still have a majority of the House come 2019. Knock on wood.

    If it was an effort to impede investigation, good luck proving it. I know the House doesn’t need to prove anything, but they’d be way out in Speculation Land. Without an oar, too, because Trump waited until he had plausible cause.

    And then he promptly blew up that cause a day later. To the Russian Foreign Minister in the Oval Office! Mueller has a copy of the first pages-long draft (described as a “rant”) of Trump’s dismissal letter, which may make for interesting reading. You tie in Trump’s previous pressure on Comey about Flynn and Russia, Flynn’s later guilty plea and God-only-knows what he’ll testify to, Trump’s own statements on the matter, what you’re left with isn’t a plausible cause, it’s a patently pretextual one.

    And I don’t get what you mean by thrown out on his ass in a needlessly humiliating way. What, he didn’t do the honorable Washington thing and let him resign? Pfft. That would’ve been the same media circus no matter how Comey was fired.

    I meant just what I said. Doing the “honorable Washington thing” might not have prompted Comey to play secret squirrel with his memos. It certainly wouldn’t have caught quite the unwelcome notice of a lot of people in the permanent bureaucracy who, as I mentioned, take those kinds of slights seriously. Inveigling Rosenstein into it almost certainly wouldn’t have prompted him to say “Hell with it, I’m out,” and to hand off the whole thing to Mueller with a dangerously broad mandate.

    Or maybe it would have done all those things, but whatever Trump was seeking to accomplish by defenestrating Comey, I would say it failed, which is why I called it needless, and more than likely it blew up badly in his face.

    Trump’s campaign book proposed levying a tax on remittance Of money to recipients in foreign countries. That was a great idea for funding the construction of a border wall, and such revenue could be used to fund deportations as well.

    The fact that he has never mentioned the idea again, let alone had allies introduce legislation to that effect, combined with many other instances of inaction where executive orders were a ready option, tell us what we need to know about him and his administration.

    The real purpose of juries is and always has been to present a credible threat of jury nullification of the prosecution. This keeps the system within "community standards" unless the jury consists of total cucks. Blacks, mestizos, orientals and Jews are rarely if ever cucks. Whites often are.


    Community standards in the Bay Area are very different from what they are in most of the rest of the US, hence the outrage.

    Yes, a Common Law system (of which the jury system is a part) requires a common morality, and thus a common culture. America hasn’t really had that for a century at least (see Albion’s Seed, and the chapter of The Collapse of American Criminal Justice about the “first culture war”). Not to mention the Anglo-Saxon court system only works well when you have Anglo-Saxon crime rates (again see The Collapse of American Criminal Justice on our system’s dependence on the vast majority of cases being plea-bargained).

    People are blaming this all on SF but the Feds f'ed up also. It has always been the policy, even in SF, to hand over illegal aliens with outstanding Federal warrants to the Feds. When they get done with Zarate now, he is going over to the Feds because the Feds have presented them with a warrant. Disobeying a Federal warrant is a good way to get arrested by the US Marshal even if you are a SF cop, judge, whatever. The problem was, when they turned Zarate over to SF for his stupid marijuana charge (for which SF let him out in like 5 minutes) they neglected to give SF a warrant for his return. SF therefore was legally free (and it was their policy as a sanctuary city) to let him walk out of the jail the same as anyone else they are done with. In the absence of a warrant, they had no legal obligation to call the Feds to come pick him up.

    Keep in mind that the Federal bureaucracy under Obama, both the political appointees and the "permanent government" (and most of the Federal judges in CA) were on the same side as SF - it takes 2 to play sanctuary city. Trump has only a few political appointees to turn things around with - everyone else in the Fed gov. is a 5th column. Someone checked the campaign contribution records for the employees of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau and the contributions were like 500 to 1 Democrat.

    One thing Republicans have never been good at, at least not since Nixon, is creative and malicious use of bureaucracy against their enemies. They should set it up so any time a sanctuary city wants anyone in federal custody who might have immigration issues (and that accounts for a big proportion of people in federal custody) to show up in local proceedings, the sanctuary city is fully on the hook for transportation costs (the U.S. Marshal’s Service charges states and local municipalities $1,150 each way per head to fly prisoners on JPATS, the “Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System,” or “Con Air” as it’s popularly known), and per diem for a full security detail. Throw in a couple hotel rooms while they’re at it. It’s a necessity if sanctuary cities won’t stop prisoners from just walking out of their jails.

    And if Trump and Sessions are going to get money to expand ICE as part of an increase in immigration enforcement, they ought to poach the hell out of local police departments where immigration enforcement is a priority (which happen to be often sanctuary cities). Offer big hiring bonuses plus time-in-grade recognition plus age waivers to grab up experienced local cops who know the cities well and have existing connections within their old departments.

    One thing Republicans have never been good at, at least not since Nixon, is creative and malicious use of bureaucracy against their enemies.

    Whites seem to be in a strange place these days; a lot of the ostentatious virtue signaling seems to come from this strange mix of feelings of superiority and inferiority. Superiority because Euro- descended peoples (Anglos in particular) have been on top for quite some time and I think they still think of themselves as the center of the universe. They don't see any threat from multiculturalism because they can't imagine not being at the top of the pyramid.

    But on the other hand, creeping feelings of inferiority--they see that the Asians are starting to beat them at their own game (science, tech, business, high-functioning societies, etc..) Fundamentally they are afraid they might not have what it takes to win in the future. But instead of knuckling down and competing they pretend that they're not even interested in that game, and make up stories about how past successes were because their societies were oh so open and diverse and virtuous and in the future we'll be even more so and then we'll stay on top amirite?

    We shouldn't be lazy and accept the leftist Narrative, especially not if it's glaringly stupid.

    I think that holocaust-deniers are not really Nazis, even if they worship Hitler. You know, actual Nazis didn't deny the holocaust, they condoned it. While the actual methods of the holocaust were (badly guarded) state secrets, Hitler didn't really deny the holocaust, he frequently and openly talked in his speeches about how Jewry was disappearing from Europe, and how his "prophecy" made in 1939 about a world war resulting in the destruction of European Jewry was coming true.

    Nazis were bad because they committed the holocaust, not because they denied it. (See above, it's even questionable how much they actually denied it.) Someone who denies the holocaust thinks that the holocaust was (or would have been) bad, and because he also worships Hitler, resolves the contradiction by denying the holocaust even happened.

    So holocaust-deniers are not that bad (at least not necessarily bad): presumably they wouldn't want to do something which they consider bad, so they wouldn't commit the holocaust, even if they worship Hitler. They are not really Nazis.

    Okay, they might lie about it just so that they have another shot at committing another holocaust, but since A) they have no chance of actually coming to power and B) they are largely fighting for good goals (like reducing immigration), why not give them the benefit of the doubt?

    Of all the groups making demographic inroads in the US (Muslims, Mexicans, Mormons) the only one I think are unstoppable are the Amish. I'm not expert, but my understanding is that they view agricultural work as being the highest form of work, but if that isn't available they are OK with manufacturing or construction work. (finance, massage therapy, blogging? Not OK.) While these jobs have declined there are still plenty of those jobs around, and there always will be, and if you have to choose between Mexicans or Amish for your framing crew who ya gonna pick?

    I don't even think they'll have to do that, though, because of their style of farming--they could conceivably take over the whole agricultural sector in North America. Their style of farming is incredibly inefficient from a labor perspective--the guy in Illinois who grows 1000 acres of corn/soy obviously produces much more per unit of labor. However it is very capital efficient--Amish guy doesn't need a $100,000 combine with GPS and air conditioned cab, diesel fuel, GMO seeds, roundup, etc. He needs a horse and some basic, basic equipment, and he can easily supply pretty much all of his own capital; the only exception is land, but since these are relatively small operations they don't need much land per family and they tend to use it quite efficiently ($ output per unit land compares favorably with modern commercial operations.)

    Because of the religious angle, the relative labor inefficiency doesn't matter--Amish guy doesn't care that he's making less than minimum wage for backbreaking labor because he views it as a religious calling. He's not going to be driven out of the field by low wages like you see in most labor markets. So commercial farmer's labor advantage doesn't mean much in the real world--furthermore commercial farmer's 1.9 kids might run off to the big city if they can make a few more bucks but Amish guy's kids won't. Or rather a few might, but since he has 7 one of the kids steps up. And as mentioned above he doesn't really need outside capital. So slowly, inexorably, things flip Amish.

    What's gonna stop them? Oil goes to $300/barrel? Commercial farming is dead, Amish are fine. Global warming? Central Valley agriculture is dead, Amish tend to stick to cooler areas, Amish are fine. Leaders make bad decisions? They don't have central leadership that can go full retard as has happened in the US 1968-present. So a few sects will shrivel and the rest will be fine.

    200 years from now I think we'll be marveling about how 90% of the agricultural caste is descended from two Amish families in the mid 19th century.

    Anyway, the lesson is: control your own stuff (no debts, no technologies you can't maintain yourself), control yourself (no vanities), control your women, and you'll take over the world, albeit slowly.

    the only one I think are unstoppable are the Amish… What’s gonna stop them?

    How about overturning Wisconsin v. Yoder, which many legal scholars have argued is incompatible with modern jurisprudence and ripe to be overturned? Forcing the Amish to submit their children to the full course of Lefty public school indoctrination would likely have at least some negative effects. And plenty of people have argued that the Amish taking their kids out after 9th grade constitutes “abuse” (because it “cripples” their ability to fit in and compete in non-Amish society, “forcing” them to remain Amish). And look at what happened to the FLDS, where in at least one place “family serves” forcibly removed everyone under the age of 18 on the grounds that the entire community could essentially be presumed guilty of child abuse given their beliefs. You don’t think there could be a similar campaign against the Amish.

    Note also all the other “grandfathered” exemptions for the Amish that a hostile FedGov could remove. Remember the FDA/Amish “whole milk” incident? There’s a whole mass of places that the ways the Amish make a living could be attacked for violation of the masses of Federal law and regulation out there if the government wanted.

    In short, the Amish exist in America at the sufferance of FedGov; the moment they start looking like they pose a threat, they’re toast.

    No, it doesn’t. Look at what’s happened to Stormfront and others. Look at Paypal, Patreon, Twitter, etc.; and at attempts to create “parallel institutions” like gab.ai or Hatreon. Look at the Chinese internet. There’s no “parallel” network we can create, that they cannot shut down. Any network must connect people either via the wires (owned by ISPs), or via wireless (and the FCC owns the airwaves), both of which give the State final leverage. And encryption? Try outmatching the NSA there.

    Separation and secession won't work. Consider the Jews. There is over a thousand years of people complaining about how much the Jews suck, how they will screw you over if they have the chance and how they are fundamentally not like Christians. And yet people gave them power. This seems impossible to reconcile until you realize the former is the reason for the latter- the more Jews are horrible people, the more the elite is incentivized to give them power to screw you over. Of course since complaining about the King is treason, people focus on the Jews.

    Bloodly Shovel talks about 'biological leninism' which applies here. The problem with power is that you need loyal underlings who won't betray you and seize it for themselves; inevitably power falls to individuals who solve this problem. The traditional method was hereditary rule and military force which is self explanatory.

    We don't use those. The solution is one countless totalitarian governments have used in the past- have underlings who are less competent then you. The communists justified this as hiring workers and peasants who were unfairly discriminated against. The problem is that some peasants are actually competent and think they deserve their job and so there is still power struggles and purges. Our leaders have come up with a new solution- justify it on the grounds of 'history of oppression'. The grounds for oppression of course are 'denied power because they are insanely incompetent' with the elite punishing people for pointing out the latter.

    This insures the underlings are loyal and the system functions. The system being 'keep the people screwing everyone over in power'.

    We need a King, a Furher, a Comrade Chairmen- someone securely in power who doesn't have to appoint incompetents or make people believe nonsense in order to justify they power grab. The current situation will continue to get worse until we get one or society implodes. Probably the latter.

    October 2:
    -Fort Warren, Massachusetts: removal of memorial to 13 Confederate prisoners who died in captivity announced.

    -Clark County, Washington (which includes Vancouver): Clark County Historic Preservation Commission voted to remove the granite highway marker at Jefferson Davis Park (outside Ridgefield) from its local heritage list

    November 19:
    -Alexandria, Virginia: Portrait of Lee quietly removed from City Council chambers (relocated to local history museum).

    So it looks like the “Nazis with tiki torches” mostly ‘succeeded’ in prompting a spike of removals in “retaliation”, followed by the subsequent removals, still ongoing, being carried out much more quietly, quickly, and often at night, so as to inhibit any further large protests.

    ” it’s important to keep on remembering the degree to which you can still pretty much do whatever you want. [cites Amish]”

    Yes, anyone could start a modern alternative system equivalent of the Amish. Just plan out your system, collect your followers and elect a bishop. Then you’ll need to head out to the barn, grab the phone and make yourself comfortable — you’ve got some calls to make:

    1. Call the SSA. Inform them that you’ll be opting out of Social Security including the 13% payroll taxes as well as the benefits. Ask them to inform the IRS that you won’t be getting Social Security numbers.
    2. Call HHS. Inform them that you’ll be opting out of Medicare taxes and benefits. Let them know that you’ll also be declining all aspects of the Obamacare mandate.
    3. Call the USDA and FDA. Explain to them that you won’t be following their mandates, that you’ll be selling raw milk, butter and other products in your community as you’ve always done.
    4. Call the EPA. Inform that their runoff regulations and waterway won’t be applicable to your farms but that you will be workers will seem quaint and organic to city-dwelling environmental activists.
    5. Call the Federal and State Dept of Education and your local school district. Tell them that you will won’t be using state-certified teachers, that you’ll completely ignore state and federal curriculum and testing mandates. Also they’ll only go to school till the age of 13.
    6. Call the Bureau of Labor and tell them that you aren’t going to follow child labor laws.
    7. Call the Federal Courts and explain that you won’t be following the ADA and some provisions the 1964 Civil Rights act and expect to exempted from lawsuits.
    8. Call the state board of insurers and exempt yourself from their life, health and casualty insurance regulations. You’re approach will be different.
    9. Call the local planning committee and exempt yourself from zoning and land use ordinances.
    10. Call the SEC and Federal Reserve to let them know that you’ll be dealing largely in cash and bank alternatives while ignoring their regulations.

    Of course, you’ll have to modify this for your own group preferences that may not be looked upon as favorably as the deviations the Amish make from modern norms.

    Also, plan on being very persuasive since you won’t have a 500 year tradition including over 300 years in Pennsylvania, the sympathy of millions of Mennonites, Brethren, ex-Amish and half the people in PA who have Anabaptists roots and 70+ year tradition of being exempted from the modern fascist/socialist programs starting with the New Deal.

    The simple reality that there is NO room in the modern centrally regulated system for a group like the Amish or Orthodox Jews without very significant grandfathered exemptions for non-voluntary rules.
     

    That is a very salient point, one which I have never seemed to drive home with gentile reactionaries who fall into that “back to the land,” mode of thinking. Many know I have orthodox relatives and think it is as simple as figuring out what’s done and how. Few accept the answer that what’s done is, by in large not legal for anyone else. Age-old anti-modernist sects have long been tolerated as special cases and everyone else who attempts to follow in their footsteps is branded as a cult and generally dispersed or destroyed.

    It is a hard lesson for many conservatives or libertarians cum traditionalists to swallow, but the door will not be opened before them. The dystopian modern world that they inhabit is all that they will ever know. The time for running and finding cover in the riverbeds and oak-groves of tradition are long past. Given enough time, even these grandfathered and storied traditionalist sects will be grabbed up and made to genuflect to the new g-d of progress. Many Amish were convinced to come out and vote for Trump with good reason. The writing is on the wall. Western people can join the struggle to take back their political self-determination or they can be folded into future history books as a foot-note.

    Somewhat off-topic, but I think if conservatives were to devise a TV show designed to satirize everything about coastal elite lifestyles and values, ‘Transparent” would be it. So much so in fact that I was almost suspicious of some subversive intent ‘between the lines’.
     
    I decided to check it out a year ago. I meant to click on Season 1 Episode 1, but actually watched the first episode of season 2 by mistake. I could not believe what I was watching. Thinking that this episode must surely be an outlier, over the next several weeks I watched every episode of the first two seasons. It wasn't an outlier; there was worse stuff in several episodes.

    If you've never seen Transparent, there's simply no way to describe just how sick, vile, perverted, and disgusting the show is.

    It's about a Jewish family, and it's written and produced by Jews, but a person could be excused for wondering if Transparent isn't the result of some sort of neo-Nazi plot, as it seems deliberately designed to make people hate Jews.

    I guess the people that put this stuff out feel like they're so powerful and normal people are so weak that they can just openly rub our faces in this filth now.

    Interesting survey data on the USA:

    Via Z-Man, more generational survey data to chew on. This one explicitly and almost exclusively focuses on race among those aged 18-34 (mostly millennials but also the leading edge of Gen Z),
     

    - A majority--52%--of blacks identify "racism" from a list of 22 possible choices as one of the top three most important problems in the contemporary US, with 29% of blacks identifying it as the single most important problem in the country (health care comes in at a distant second, at 13%).

    No matter what happens, this will never end. No amount of prostration to or deification of blacks will mollify them. Transferring trillions more in various welfare programs from blacks to non-blacks won't do it, either. It's with us as long as blacks are with us.

    Large numbers of Hispanics and Asians--33% and 32%, respectively--also put racism in the top three. All racial problems in the US will continue to accentuate rather than ameliorate as time goes on.

    In contrast, the issue of "women's rights" gets single-digits across the color spectrum, with just 4% of the total survey pool prioritizing it.
     

    When America was over 80% white, special privileges for non-whites weren't something that effected most whites. Only those on the very bottom of society had much to lose. That America is long gone.

    In today's disUnited States of Diversity, white Zyklons are teetering on the edge of minority status. Special privileges for non-whites threatens the prospects of the vast majority of them. They're reacting accordingly.

    To the question "Do you agree or disagree that discrimination against whites has become as big a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minorities?", whites split almost evenly with 48% agreeing and 51% disagreeing. These responses are mostly from millennials, with a dash of the front end of Gen Z thrown in. I suspect that whites currently in junior high and high school will push that "agree" figure over 50% in the coming years, probably drastically so.

     


    Relatedly, while 85% of whites think whites and non-whites "share common problems and can be political allies", just 49% of non-whites think the same.

    That's right, a slim majority of non-whites think white and non-whites cannot be political allies. Ekow Yankah is speaking on behalf of huge numbers of non-whites.

    Political dissolution now or later, then?

    In today’s disUnited States of Diversity, white Zyklons are teetering on the edge of minority status. Special privileges for non-whites threatens the prospects of the vast majority of them. They’re reacting accordingly.

    And that reaction will come to nothing.

    I suspect that whites currently in junior high and high school will push that “agree” figure over 50% in the coming years, probably drastically so.

    And it doesn’t matter. So what if more and more whites realize we’re under attack? We still can’t stop the attacks, which will just keep on coming and coming until we’re rendered extinct. And there’s nothing we can do about it. We’ve already lost, the enemy is unstoppable, and all hope is lost.

    Political dissolution now or later, then?

    More like never, because that was “settled at Appomattox”. Texas v. White, “more perfect Union”, “one nation… indivisible”, et cetera, et cetera. Once you’re part of USA, you’re part of it forever. Non-violent “political dissolution” has been officially ruled Absolutely Forbidden For All Time. And as for violent political dissolution, what makes you think a second Civil War would go any better than the first? Particularly with the changes in warfare and military technology, and lack of clear geographic lines of division (look at a county-level US political map, for one).

    This appears to be related to the tendency of modern civilized humans to have blood that clots too easily for our easy lifestyles.

    Pills that cure type 2 diabetes already exist. They are called vitamins and minerals.

    Type 2 diabetes can be cured in one to two weeks. Drink large amounts of alkalizing fluids on an empty stomach – green juices, a lemon blended in water, or a tablespoon of baking soda mixed in water. The supplements that should be taken with food are the ones that promote blood flow and reduce clotting: magnesium, calcium, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. In addition, with the right amount of these supplements, neuropathy, pain and numbness of the extremities, can be cured in as little as three days. Gone. Drink protein powder to heal neuropathy, sores, and uclers.

    In the documentary Simply Raw , Dr. Gabriel Cousens reverses diabetes with a raw vegan diet. Sergei Boutenko eliminated juvenille diabetes with a raw vegan diet. For exercise, walk up stairs every day until tired. This may take less than a minute in the beginning.

    At least this defeatist comment has some actual substance.

    Yes, somewhere down the chain of command there are obstructionists. Does that mean you surrender to them, or does that mean find a way around/over/through them?

    Not every one has to be fired. Simply reassign unfireable obstructors to something harmless and bring in someone effective to do the real job, even if it means making parallel offices somewhere else. Big orgs do these end runs all the time.

    Escalation is good. If the system won't work properly, make it break. When it's broken, burn it down and make new. If things get kinetic, well, we all know who's better prepared for that.

    Yes, somewhere down the chain of command there are obstructionists. Does that mean you surrender to them, or does that mean find a way around/over/through them?

    Again, read Foseti, research the Fed bureaucracies. They’re >90% Lefty. The “obstructionists” aren’t just a handful of folks here or there “somewhere down the chain of command”; they’re the majority, by far, of that chain of command.

    Not every one has to be fired. Simply reassign unfireable obstructors to something harmless

    Except there aren’t that many Federal positions that are truly “harmless”, and definitely not enough, as the “unfireable obstructors” make up at least 2/3 of Fed employees. Do you really think there’s enough “harmless” things to reassign that much of the bureaucracy to? Plus, research what it actually takes to reassign Fed employees. It may be less difficult than firing them, but it’s still far from easy.

    and bring in someone effective to do the real job,

    Again, research how Federal hiring actually works, and what it takes to bring someone in, especially someone “effective” who isn’t already thoroughly indoctrinated into Leftism by Academia.

    even if it means making parallel offices somewhere else.

    Again, research what it actually takes to create, fund, and staff new Federal Gov. offices like these “parallel offices” would be.

    Big orgs do these end runs all the time.

    Big orgs in the private sector. The Federal Government is very different; the laws and rules are different. Do the research (like I have). You’ll find the system is set up to very much inhibit things like this, and the mass that you need to do an “end run” around is too big (again, 2/3 of FedGov is the low-end estimate).

    Escalation is good. If the system won’t work properly, make it break. When it’s broken, burn it down and make new.

    Except that the system the Left has made is more resilient — harder for us to break — than you give it credit for, at least partially due to the decentralized dynamics of Leftism. Yes, their worldview is insane, incompatible in the long term with reality and human nature. But in the long term, we’re all dead; there’s a lot of ruin in a nation; the market can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent. There’s plenty of civilizational “seed corn” that can be looted to prop up the Left. Yes, eventually their system will collapse… and irreversibly take all of human civilization with it. Because nothing less than civilizational collapse is powerful enough to take the Left down.

    Not to mention, rebuilding from the ashes of civilizational collapse is far easier said than done, and due to depletion of the readily-available “low hanging fruit” resources, the Industrial Revolution can never be repeated.

    If things get kinetic, well, we all know who’s better prepared for that.

    Yes, the Left, hands down, as David Z Hines has thoroughly explained here, here, and here. We may have more (civilian) guns, but they have the organization.

    Or to quote Hines from here:

    That’s what movements are about: gaining power. Movements don’t just happen. And they’re not the product of orders from on high, or rent-a-protestors paid out of somebody’s checkbook. They’re the product of a lot of people doing a lot of hard work over a very long time.

    Righties don’t want to believe that. Thus, the same old horseshit: “oh it’s all George Soros.” “Oh we don’t get turnout for protests because we all have jobs.” “Oh we’d win a Second Civil War in five minutes anyway because the Lefties are wusses and we’ve got all the guns.”

    It can’t possibly be that there’s work we need to do, work that we’ve been neglecting because we don’t understand how it works and we’re lazy. That’s unthinkable.

    Well, think it. Because it’s true.

    Some Righties talk about the idea of a post-political world — the idea that a system with less citizen input, on the continuum from Singapore to monarchy or neocameralism — would be more stable. But in a world without elections, there would still be shifts in power. It’s just that the mechanisms by which power shifts wouldn’t have occasional moments of relative transparency. And those circumstances, I hate to tell you, favor the Left: look at how often the Right wins elections but doesn’t get what it wants, while the Left doesn’t win as many elections and gets what it wants anyway. Leftist organizers are some of the most important political figures in the country. I didn’t vote for them, did you?

    Were you this gloomy during the Obama administration? Or did you wait till after the Trumpening to go full defeatist?

    To respond to the substance of your comment:

    Yes, I know the majority of Feds are contra-American. They are also mostly ineffective and useless. So rendering them harmless is not actually a big leap. Probably the easiest way is just making them adhere to every last iota of their rules and regulations (Alinsky-style).

    A parallel office does not have to be big. Indeed, small teams are more effective. The British ruled India with a tiny Colonial Office of only a few hundred men. The Fed bureacracy's enormity is a symptom of its ineffectiveness, not potency.

    I'm familiar with, like and admire David Hines's writing, and I read those cited works some time ago. I happen to think he is wrong on this, though his arguments are good and amusingly presented. The short version of Hines is that the Left is better at exploiting systems. This is true, but in a breakdown situation there is, by definition, less system-age to exploit. And things that the Left is bad at, mano-a-mano, logistics, authenticity, come to the fore.

    Yes, rebuilding is difficult, but if you really believe that doom is certain with the status quo, then rebuilding is much easier than certain doom.

    By the way, is it possible you have some kind of medical condition? I'm not being snarky, I just have never seen anyone not a double agent put so much intelligent effort into spreading despondence and malaise into the side he claims to uphold.

    And, the point isn’t that insightful, really. It’s a basic of strategy back to at least Sun-Tsu: attack the enemy where you are strong and he is weak, not where you are weak and he is strongest. Trying to beat the Left at their own game is fighting the enemy where he’s strongest.

    But what domain is there where we are strong, and the left is weak? Because I don’t see one. And no, “force of arms” is not it. I’ve made the point before via comparison to Medieval peasant rebellions, and citations to Max Boot on guerrilla warfare. The civilian arms the 2nd Am. allows us are the modern equivalent of a peasant’s pitchforks and torches. What matters is the professional military, and even if the rank-and-file may be mostly recruited from amongst us deplorables (though I’ve read that more and more military are second or third generation military, on their way to becoming a separate military caste), it seems pretty clear to me that the Left holds the leash pretty tightly. Not to mention at the street-fighting level, the Left has the advantages of experience and organization (see David Z. Hines’s recent writings).

    Disagree. Defamation actions are possible under current law, e.g., Thiel's Gawker takedown, Eradmo etc. vs. Rolling Stone. Easy? No. Doable? Yes. Worthwhile? Definitely.

    And defamation actions are not the only option. Inciting a riot is a crime. Criminal conspiracy is a crime. The overtly racial aspects makes it civil rights violations and therefore federal. All it needs is a few prosecutors who want to do this. The path is open.

    Irrespective of the final outcome, even just the discovery in cases like this could be very embarrassing for the left. Like a little DNC email leak each time.

    It is perhaps not well understood by the public how little of the law that is written is actually executed. We assume that law on the books is automatically implemented. Not so. Not only is the implemented law a small subset of available law, but a zealous prosecutor makes the process the punishment such that where prosecutors choose it, implemented law actually exceeds written law. That's why we get to elect executives as well as legislators. Well, we've got a lot of supposedly conservative execs now. Time to get them cracking. If they don't want to, then we get better execs.

    And there are plenty of causes for private action. Death, injury, and property damage open a panoply of legal remedies. Enterprising lawyers can find them and exploit them. Legitimate plaintiffs can use them. They just need the habit of doing so. Getting the habit just takes the will to start now.

    A few salient cases will result in in everyone noticing the wind has shifted.

    Which is why there will never, ever, ever be such prosecutors in office.

    It’s not that they don’t want to, it’s that they can’t. Whatever their supposed powers are on paper, in the real world they don’t actually have the power to do what you are asking them to do. And no, we can’t get “better execs”; anyone we replace the current “execs” with will for sure be nothing but more of the same. It is impossible to get into office anyone who isn’t more of the same.

    And there are plenty of causes for private action.

    Private action guaranteed to lose. And “enterprising lawyers” aren’t going to take these cases, because they’re smart enough to know they’re guaranteed losers, because no lefty judge is going to find in favor of these plaintiffs, no matter how legitimate their cases.

    It is true that most Feds are lefties, but they all work for one Fed: the President. All he has to do is tell them whom to sue and how. If they don't like it, they can get new jobs and the President can get new Feds who will like it.

    It's not complicated. After all, how do you think the current Feds all got to be lefties in the the first place? The left meticulously rooted out the normies from the bureaucracy. There is no reason they can't be put back in. No reason, that is, unless we defeat ourselves by saying "can never happen".

    It is true that most Feds are lefties, but they all work for one Fed: the President.

    In theory perhaps, but we’re seeing how that works — or more accurately, doesn’t work — in practice. Look at the military tranny ban. The DoD most definitely is supposed to work for the President — the Commander-in-Chief — in theory, but when Trump ordered trannies out of the military, did the Pentagon start drawing up discharge papers? No, Mattis “commissioned a study”; they stalled and engaged in bureaucratic delaying tactics to buy time until a lefty judge could pronounce it illegal. You think any other (leftier, and less given to subordination than the military) Federal bureaucracy couldn’t and wouldn’t do the same or worse?

    All he has to do is tell them whom to sue and how.

    And then they delay, and obfuscate, and “lose” things in bureaucratic shuffles; or sue as ordered, and then do a bad job (but not so bad as to not have plausible deniability) and “tank” the case (and set precedent for all future such cases). There’s plenty the “swamp” can do to passively defy or refuse to carry out the orders of a (nominal) superior they oppose without going into outright insubordination — and I woudn’t put that past bureaucrats out to #Resist Trump. Read the archives of Foseti, who works in a >90% Fed bureaucracy, about how things actually work in practice.

    If they don’t like it, they can get new jobs

    Except that, save for maybe the very top-level guys, Trump can’t actually fire the “swamp creatures”. Because there’s all the “civil service protections” put in place against the “spoils system” — i.e. politicians being able to fire hostile bureaucrats of the other party and replace them with loyalists — that it can take a presidential term to get someone out of a Fed job, like the EPA employee who spent all his time at work watching internet porn on his computer and kept his job for three more years while the laborious process of removing him ground on — and that’s one where the courts didn’t get involved. These guys have been given effectively permanent tenure, beyond the reach of any merely-elected politician — even POTUS — to remove.

    and the President can get new Feds

    who, in order to be “qualified for the job”, and thus hired, must be products of the same education, the same system, as produced the current “swamp creatures”, and who are thus all porto-swamp-creatures in waiting. See the musical chairs amongst the top positions, as Trump fires people and their replacements end up being just as disloyal, just as much beings of the Swamp… if not more so. There are no masses of Right-wing would-be-Fed-bureaucrats waiting to be hired to replace a “drained” Swamp.

    It’s not complicated. After all, how do you think the current Feds all got to be lefties in the the first place?

    Entryism, and control of Academia, Media, and the Courts. And entryism, as a go-to tactic of the Left, is also a tactic the Left is vigilant against, and generally structured to make ineffective. A tool can work for a job, but not for the opposite job. One cannot build a building with the wrecking ball one uses to knock a building down. And there are plenty of tactics which work well for the Left to use against the Right, but are in turn useless for the Right to fight the Left. We cannot beat them at their own game.

    Indeed, but most middle-class Americans do not live in such ZIP codes.

    Part of the issue here is no doubt the vividness of being shot by a mugger vs. the less vivid picture of a life that wastes away because the elite have made it difficult for people to live fulfilling lives.

    How many white males were murdered in the last couple years by members of the underclass vs. how many white males committed suicide, died because of substance abuse, etc.?

    "If it bleeds, it leads." We pay more attention to a hundred people who die in an airplane crash than a couple thousand people who die in the same month in auto crashes.

    The ruling elite certainly grasps the parameters of propaganda!

    But, in terms of the effect on the lives of ordinary middle-class Americans, which is, in simple numerical terms, really more devastating -- lower-class violence or the destruction of our society by the elite?

    “Part of the issue here is no doubt the vividness of being shot by a mugger vs. the less vivid picture of a life that wastes away because the elite have made it difficult for people to live fulfilling lives.”

    I agree about the fulfilling lives part. In fact I think a lot of the racial tension in American society would dissipate if anyone who worked hard and played by the rules stood a decent chance to lead a rich and fulfilling life.

    As for what a rich and fulfilling life might look like for average human beings—as opposed to the talented few, for whom equality of opportunity is the be all and end all—I spell out one possibility in my new book: https://goo.gl/q4kodC

    Return of Slavery and the end of Western Moral Hegemony.

    http://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2017/11/13/libya-migrant-slave-auction-lon-orig-md-ejk.cnn

    In the past, whites used to be proud, united, morally confident, aggressive, and ruthless.
    They conquered the world and told non-whites that the white way was the most civilized and that non-whites should emulate the white world not only in science and technology but in morality and values. And who could argue with the fact that the West was indeed ahead in every field: science, math, economics, ethics, political philosophy, concept of rights, spirituality(Christianity was better than most religions), and etc.

    Now, whites were also hypocritical and didn't live up to their stated values, but still, those values were more humane and advanced than values and attitudes in other parts of the world. Also, whites controlled all the guns and the machinery of power in the West. And they felt whites should rule the West, the core of the world empire.

    And non-whites couldn't help notice the greatness in all this. Sure, some had reasons to hate whites, but even the haters were overcome with the realization that the West had leapt far ahead of others. It's like what the Hindus say in the movie PASSAGE TO INDIA. Brits piss them off, but they admire the Brits just the same. And the once-arrogant Chinese had to eat humble pork and decided to modernize along Western lines.

    And for most of the 20th century, Western values were admirable and rock solid. They were about freedom, liberty, human rights, people power, labor laws, property laws, rule of law, tolerance, importance of love and family, and etc. Who could argue with that? The core liberal-conservative values of the West seemed the sanest and most admirable.

    But then, whites began to lose moral confidence.
    In earlier times, whites knew they'd done wrong or gone too far with wars, imperialism, and slave trade, but they still retained their overall pride(based on the fact that the West, even with its failings, were still more advanced and more humane that others) and sense of purpose. And even whites who sought to make up for wrongs believed that non-whites had most to gain by following the good advice of whites and trying to emulate white folks. Indeed, they insisted on this.

    But this confidence collapsed. The narrative went from whites being mostly-good-but-flawed to whites-being-very-bad-and-having-to-atone, especially in regards to Jews and blacks.
    Also, just when whites in democratic nations were being educated to become less nationalist, less proud, and less judgmental, non-whites all over the world were educated with hardline nationalism with heavy dose of victim narrative. We see the effect of this between Anglos and Hindus. Anglos are now so willy-nilly and tolerant in US, Canada, Australia, and UK. They want to be nice and get along. But Hindus who come to the West were raised under decades of Indian Nationalist Narrative where noble Hindus were oppressed by these eeeeeevil Brits.

    So, this means that there is no longer any respect for white or western moral authority.

    Possibly worse, Western Values have become truly decadent and degenerate. This trend sped up in the final decade of the 20th century but went totally crazy under Obama.
    Even though decadence had been a factor in the West in the 20th century, it was something to be tolerated under liberal concept of rights of speech and expression than celebrated and idolized. So, homo stuff was part of the cultural scene through most of the 20th century in the West, but it was not something a society was PROUD of. No one even imagined that churches would be festooned with homo symbols. It's one thing to say Christianity should have a place for sinners and wretches of all kinds. But for a church tow welcome homos as angel-like saints? Also, even though Western culture had its sexy and even seedy side, most people knew what was virtue and what was vice. And even legalized pornography was kept in spheres only for adults. But now, it's all over the place and even mainstream culture increasingly reflects it.

    http://www.frontporchrepublic.com/2017/11/pornified-puritans-and-the-logic-of-pornography/

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/reconsidering-ken-starr-douthat/

    This is why this homomania and tranny-mania stuff around the world is a Pyrrhic victory. Even as nation after nation fall under the influence of homo influence, there's the inescapable sense that the West now stands for NOTHING but vanity, celebrity, and debauchery. And neither its elites nor its people have the sense or spine to see the lunacy for what it is and stand up to it. When spreading 'gay marriage' is the main theme of Western Values, it means Western morality has been hollowed out.

    And that means the West has lost the will to be a real moral leader and arbiter in the world. And that means the non-West(and non-whites in the West) will keep regressing to their own values and cultures. Now, it'd be best if the world revived the sane Western value system of the 20th century(esp the humanist one that prevailed in the 50s after WWII), but that is no longer possible as decadence and degeneracy have seeped into and rotted the very core of Western values. To be 'western' today, one has to embrace the craziest theories in 'gender studies'. Such lunacy will only sicken and weaken the West, and then.. the world will be without a unifying moral standard that had once been upheld by Western Power.

    Then, the world could very well revert to medievalism, barbarism, and savagery. The world simply cannot be inspired for long by decadence and degeneracy.

    Then, the world could very well revert to medievalism, barbarism, and savagery.

    More like will revert. And while I have much to say in favor of many things that are often described as “medievalism”, the price will be the permanent loss of technological (Industrial revolution) civilization, like Derbyshire talked about here.

    It is true that most Feds are lefties, but they all work for one Fed: the President. All he has to do is tell them whom to sue and how. If they don't like it, they can get new jobs and the President can get new Feds who will like it.

    It's not complicated. After all, how do you think the current Feds all got to be lefties in the the first place? The left meticulously rooted out the normies from the bureaucracy. There is no reason they can't be put back in. No reason, that is, unless we defeat ourselves by saying "can never happen".

    Some White people must have an unlimited appetite for hearing someone acting as an advocate for some vibrant Other. I got the same stuff back when I still turned on the radio here. A little bit of that is fine but when it's story after story, day after day, I'm left wondering where I can hear about what's going on with White people like me. I guess we'll need a few more years of torchlight parades for them to wonder if they should take time to see if the White folks need some advocacy and attention too?

    Because it’s a religion. An insane, suicidal religion, but a religion nonetheless.

    Quite simply, no.

    The people who are capable of honesty and objectivity are the same individualistic people who are not cohesive enough to take and maintain control of the most valuable figurative territory in our societies. We have to use our creative technological prowess to carve out an existence in the margins.

    What that man experienced at the hands of those witches is a harbinger of what's to come on a larger scale if things continue as they are. If demographic change continues to unfold as it is and the media continues to promote the narrative of irredeemable evil Whites, expect to be surrounded by those who are at best indifferent to your existence and downright hostile to it at its worst.

    Unfortunately, due to immigration the press narratives against whites are going to make life very dangerous for whites once a minority. Our replacements don't come from cultures valuing free speech or our cultural traditions. According to a recent California poll, the majority of all other races do not approve of freedom of speech for white supremacists (e.g., non self hating whites. Other races follow these mainstream narratives and see nothing in it for them to not go along.

    That story went on for months and made me feel like the little kid in the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes, even around my own family and peers. When everybody gets their news from mainstream sources, everybody believes these narratives, and they think I’m the one that’s crazy.
     
    I think this is what worries me the most, the naivety of the masses. Most people have short attention spans, they hear the sound bite "a white police officer shoots and kills a young unarmed black man" over and over again, and believe that to be the end of the story. Most people are lazy, and want someone else to do the thinking for them, I'm sure the msm is aware of this and disseminate these divisive memes. I really hope there is some sort of recourse for this, I'm sure there are brilliant minds out there that can craft some sort of legal action against them. It could potentially set a precedent and framework to deal with future "fake news" stories.

    I've thought about this quite a bit. Given how 'our side' has essentially no representation in the formal media, I think this is an area were we could push for MORE litigation, instead of less as we usually do. When you have 0% of the market cap, rolling a hand grenade into the whole works becomes a more attractive option.

    If the laws for libel were significantly loosened, we could potentially make it too expensive for the networks to lie as rampantly as they do now. Libel laws in the USA are notoriously lax-- it is almost impossible to get any kind of decision favoring the plaintiff in a libel case. Allowing any misrepresentation or outright falsehoods not speedily retracted (with at least as many column inches or primetime minutes devoted to the retraction as the original story, and further up in the paper or earlier in the broadcast) to be grounds for a lawsuit would force some integrity back into this business. Imagine is every business owner who lost money due to the riots in Ferguson could sue the major networks in a class action case. That's a bad day if you're CNN or MSNBC.

    I’ve thought about this quite a bit. Given how ‘our side’ has essentially no representation in the formal media, I think this is an area were we could push for MORE litigation, instead of less as we usually do.

    Push how? With the power we don’t have? And litigation would be useless as well, as “‘our side’ has essentially no representation” in the courts either.

    If the laws for libel were significantly loosened, we could potentially make it too expensive for the networks to lie as rampantly as they do now.

    No we couldn’t, because the lefty courts will side with the networks every time. Under your proposal, Fox will be sued into oblivion, but CNN, MSNBC, etc. will skate every time. Because all the “fact checkers” like Politifact will be out there telling all and sundry that whatever egregious lie a lefty just uttered is actually the 100% truth. Any strengthening of libel laws will be used against Repubs and “deplorables” only, never the left. There is literally nothing we can do that they cannot overpower, override, or turn against us. They’re unstoppable, and we are doomed. There is no hope, there is no hope, there is no hope.

    Edsall must have been getting some heat for reporting objectively on the abandonment of Whites Without College Degrees(WWCDs) by the Democrats. Whites who live in mostly White towns want to keep their towns free and clear of multicultural strife and racial animosity. Edsall wrote at least a half a dozen articles where he chronicles the abandonment of WWCDs by the ruling class of the Democrat Party.

    Hillary Clinton moved to the mostly White town of Chappaqua, New York so she could avoid living around non-Whites. It wouldn't do for Hillary Clinton and her pals to get bombed on wine in a town riven by multicultural turmoil. Hillary Clinton didn't grab all that loot from foreigners so she could live in Washington Heights with the Dominicans or Harlem with the Blacks.

    EXPLICIT WHITEY in politics is here. It will take a few election cycles to get rid of the Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham types, but the Republican Party is going full-bore Whitey. If the GOP doesn't begin direct appeals to the White voter base of the GOP, then the White voter base of the GOP will abandon the GOP.

    If the GOP doesn’t begin direct appeals to the White voter base of the GOP, then the White voter base of the GOP will abandon the GOP.

    Abandon the GOP in favor of what? Not voting, which lets the Dems win all over? One of the third parties (which cannot win, per Duverger’s law)? Which one?
