    “I am here because I heard my town call me, and ask me to maintain my honor.” Fifty-seven-year-old Um Khalid Abu Mosa spoke in a strong, gravelly voice as she sat on the desert sand, a white tent protecting her from the blazing sun. “The land,” she says with determination, “is honor and dignity.” She...

    While I support the people of Gaza, I fear they are being exploited by the Cultural Marxist left. I note none of them are in Gaza taking part in the Great Return March. I guess they are afraid of getting shot while inciting the Gazans. Estimated 8,000,000 Germans were driven out of their centuries old ancestral homeland in Eastern Europe without a dime in compensation. That outnumbers the 1948 expulsion of Palestinians by a factor of ten. When will they start marching home to a homeland that no longer exists?

    “Much like Abu Mosa, 20-year-old Siwar Alza’anen, an activist in an organization called the Palestinian Students Labor Front, is motivated by a deep desire to return to her native village.”

    My antennas automatically go up when I am supposed to go weak-kneed in admiration for an “activist” (they tend to be female). “Activist” is a euphemism for a specialist in cult-Marxist agitprop.

  • In response to Ron Unz’s “The Remarkable Historiography of David Irving”, this note will pick up on and elucidate the reader-comment to that from James N. Kennett, which stated: “It seemed to me that the problem with his work was not the possible inaccuracy of the details that he included – but the things he...
  • “Irving noted, in a footnote, that Eichmann had testified to having been informed by Heydrich that “The Führer has ordered physical extermination,” but Irving simply dismissed that by saying: “There is no primary or secondary documentary support for such a statement.”

    This is a somewhat misleading characterization of Irving’s “dismal” of Eichmann’s testimony since Zuesse neglected to add that Irving also stated that Eichmann was prone to exaggeration, certainly an observation that would be relevant to considerations of credibility.

    Where that quotation appears in the text, a footnote is appended to it, and one sees the footnote on page 895 of the latest edition, and all that it says to dismiss the quotation is what I have quoted in this article.

    However, having read the reader-comments up to this point (comment #46), I notice that none even so much as mentions the key quotation that I present in this article, which is "in his Secret Conversations (Table Talk) of 21 October 1941, Hitler concluded his long tirade against Jews: 'By exterminating this pest, we shall do humanity a service ...'," which should settle the matter as to whether Hitler was proud of his "extermination" of Jews, which people he held to be a "pest," and which "infection" in his other writings he called a "bacterium," just as did Himmler. So, all these reader-comments evade that admission by Hitler. Furthermore, all till now have been evading: "The Führer’s words right before his suicide — his final, supreme, statement of his war-aims — urged his people to continue the war, until victory, against what he held to be the sole real enemy: 'the poisoner of all nations, international Jewry.”" I frankly don't understand how anyone, after seeing those two statements from Hitler himself, at and near his end, can leave any reasonable doubt as to whether David Irving is a liar. My book explains why Hitler sought the extermination of Jews: he really did believe that intermarriage of them with non-Jews caused the spreading of a blood-infection. Hitler attributed every bad trait that he held to be universal among all Jews, to being the result of that "infection." He first got his idea for the extermination plan, in September 1919, which was when he entered politics in order to become enabled to effectuate his intention.

  • Although I've soured on him in recent years, for the first decade and more of Paul Krugman's tenure at the New York Times I regarded him as about the only national columnist worth reading. Certainly many others felt the same way, and Krugman regularly ranked among the most influential liberal voices in the country, gaining...
  • I discovered the “Roosevelt Myth ” about 20 years ago and it led me over the years down a similar path of historical “Enlightenment” about our secular saint, FDR articulated so masterfully by Ron Unz in this column. Particularly depressing is the ample evidence of his conniving with Winston Churchill to give British intelligence agents a home base in NYC and access to whatever resources they need to smear the war-opposition, conduct a secret war against the Axis, and get the U. S. into the war. Both FDR and Churchill knew that Stalin had murdered the 15,000 or so Polish officers and intelligencia at Katyn in 1940 and let them skate so that they could help them conduct the Nuremberg show trial.

    Ron’s recent columns on David Irving, and his making available his books are wonderful efforts at combating the enforced orthodoxy and help to complete the circle of truth about the horrific corruption and dishonesty of FDR and Churchill. Watching the You Tube videos of Irving, especially his description of Churchill’s hypocrisy and alcohol sodden routines you suddenly realize why Irving’s character has been assassinated and his work reviled. Until Ron’s column I had avoided Irving. I intend to read all of his books.

    Irving’s account of his arrest, trial and incarceration in Austria in 2002 should shatter any illusions that the western world “democracies” are not other than disguised tyrannies.

  • C'mon, ACLU, think big! Instead of just funding more Starbucks-style Diversity Sensitivity Training, we need legislation making it illegal for whites to call the cops on blacks. Let's dream of a future for our grandchildren like this: We could call it The Above-the-Law Law. Here would be a good spokesman for the Above-the-Law Law: Bob...
  • ACLU was founded almost 100 years ago by Roger Baldwin, a very interesting and complicated fellow. To his credit he opposed U.S. involvement in WWI and did time in prison as a CO. Was drawn to the new Soviet experiment but bright enough to see that it was real bad news gentleman left wing types like himself. In the 1940s he tried to purge the ACLU of its commie members. If he were alive now, the organization would purge him.

    ACLU was involved in some landmark cases — Scopes, Sacco-Vanzetti, and the Ulysses — but now, it’s operated by the typical degenerates who control most of our institutions and cultural assets.

    Sacco Vanzetti we’re guilty as charged. The ACLU got into it as a means of raising money for the defense fund. Before the days of tax dodge charitable and educational donations that was the standard way ACLU CPUSA and the rent scanned the money for salaries offices publications etc.

    Scottsboro Boys case was another. There were 6 defendants. The ACLU CPUSA set up legal defense fund and had not the 6 mothers of the defendants but 9 women claiming to be mothers running around the country asking for donations to the defense fund.

    Then the Rockefeller Ford Woods and other foundations began funding the liberal change America for the worse organizations and there was no need to raise money for legal defense.

    [V]ersuchte Hoffmann die Präventivkriegsthese mit seinem Buch „Stalins Vernichtungskrieg“ (1995) zu untermauern. Zwar sei Stalins damaliger Angriffsplan auf das Deutsche Reich weder Grund noch Anlass für Hitlers Entschluss zum Überfall auf die Sowjetunion gewesen. Aber beide Diktatoren hätten unabhängig voneinander einen Krieg vorbereitet, und Hitler sei Stalin nur zuvorgekommen. Die Stalinrede vom 5. Mai 1941 im Kreml vor den Absolventen der sowjetischen Militärakademien (deren Echtheit allerdings wegen uneinheitlicher Quellen umstritten ist) belege, dass Stalin einen Vernichtungskrieg gegen Deutschland geplant habe.

  • Some years ago when I worked at a 3rd tier university I, along with my administrator colleagues, was required to sit through the longest two hours of my life. The session was run by apparatchiks from the Women’s Center and Gay-LBGT, etc, etc. office. This was my initiation into the world of micro-aggression and where I discovered the vast dimensions of my ignorance and insensitivity relating to any and all matters of “gender” about which, of course, nothing is fixed or certain. So why are we here? We learned all about what you could and could not say about sex, but it was not really helpful since the “standards” (sic) are constantly in flux. Which is the entire point, I guess. The PC goons who stage these events wave the code book at you just to remind you that they own it, exclusively. They change it whenever they feel like it and, most importantly, let you know that you need them to conduct the hermeneutics of oppression to keep you up-to-date, that is, to remind you that you are and always will be a member of the oppressor class. Job security and fun for them; insecurity and misery for you. At the end we were all asked to sign a pledge of support for the Gay-LGBT community and take a pink triangle to place in a conspicuous place in our offices, the symbol of a “safe space.” I had never assaulted anyone in my office, but the hostility I felt after one of these torture sessions put me on the edge.

    Yes, indeed. Below one of the best examples of how Marxism produces the opposites to its promises from the USSR Constitution of 1936, courtesy of that great progressive humanist, J.S. Stalin.

    ARTICLE 125. In conformity with the interests of the working people, and in order to strengthen the socialist system, the citizens of the U.S.S.R. are guaranteed by law:

    freedom of speech;
    freedom of the press;
    freedom of assembly, including the holding of mass meetings;

    As I recall the theory, a constitution to the Soviets was an idealized projection into the future that they admitted was not extant in contemporary society. It was a distant and final goal to seek, not a process to be implemented.

    The political message was identical to that offered by the Nazis: "Stick with us and this idealized utopia is your future. In the meantime, bear with us: 'You have to crack eggs to make an omelet...'"

    Communists (as well as contemporary Cultural Marxists, feminists, and intersectional ethnicists/racists cults who have adopted their cultural and social perspectives) are typically at peace with themselves as they seek perfection in the distant future (Platonic Forms) while irrationally and violently reacting to the political and social imperfection in the present. Indeed, recourse to the fanciful and farcical safety of the Hegelian dialectic allows them to try to functionally entertain logical contradictions at the same time (and otherwise violate the Law of Non-Contradiction) without the cognitive dissonance suffered by the rest of humanity. The approach is simple: One has to at times do nasty things (violent social deconstruction) to create the conditions to make the Platonic Forms "real" in the real world ... regardless of the consequences. If you don't succeed, it is because your social deconstructions were not violent enough. People failed you and, therefore, they will have to suffer the consequences.

    I will not call this cognitive and political approach to life childish. Rather, it is the idealized irrationality that parents typically have to deal with when they find their children have turned into rebellious, self-absorbed, and self-destructive teenagers.

  • This is one of unz.com’s more muddled efforts, like something from Mother Jones during the Reagan Administration. The Soviet Union blew up along with its efforts to install or support Marxist regimes in the Americas, so the author’s fever dreams about Trump–one year in office–funding “death squads” and masterminding coups are really dated. Central and South American countries are artificial, post-imperial constructs which historically lurch between clumsy pseudo-fascism and crude bolshevism. They probably always will. They’ve also always been easy marks for cheap credit and bad economics, long before Trump.

    The Monroe Doctrine is perfectly rational in the same way that Russia and China–the only other two countries that actually matter–seek their respective spheres of influence. It only seems less relevant since the old European powers were kicked out long ago and the Soviets are gone and no longer funding Trotskyism. I’m sure the Chinese have a lot of activity southward but it doesn’t seem problematic for the US so far.

    If anything, US national security and foreign policy institutions are too disengaged from Central and South America because they’re chasing dragons all over the Middle East.

    That is pretty much what that have been doing for a long time: Watts (1965), Detroit (1967), (buncha cities (1968), LA (1992) Ferguson, MO, Baltimore (2014-15) “But why can’t we all just get along.?”
    On the plus side, in place of the “white supremacy” monuments they are tearing down, they are building monuments to victims of racism.

Whites and well-off blacks fled the city in droves. A recent Detroit thug-mayor, Kwame Malik Kilpatrick, plundered his home town from 2002 to 2008, resigned as mayor in 2008. This big lovable lunk was convicted on felony counts, including perjury and obstruction of justice. Sentenced to four months in jail after pleading guilty, he was released on probation after serving 99 days. In May 2010, he was sentenced to 18 months to 5 years in state prison for violating his probation and sent back.

  • “Despite its triumphant revival in the West in the prior millennium, the Ancient Greeks’ view of logical debate as a no-hard-feelings contact sport seems to be fading as our culture becomes more female-dominated. Intellectual disagreement is now taken very personally….”

    “Female-dominated” thinking [sic] is also destroying what used to be the consistent, intelligible and predictable functioning of our legal system. The governments in the western world have shifted away from a long-held high priority to protect freedom of expression to the suppression of “hatred” selectively and arbitrarily interpreted and enforced by high placed ideologues who get to determine whose hatred gets punished and whose is justified (sounds like arguing with my sister). This turns the business of legislating, of making readily understandable rules that everyone is expected to follow, into a contorted hermeneutics of hatred where the subjectivity of moralizing displaces the objectivity of law and the intended universality of its application. The ideologues (e.g. Hillary Clinton, Angela Merkel, Elizabeth Warren) who operate the abstruse moral machinery that is designed to suppress hatred have theorized individuals into distinct groups, the oppressed and the oppressors, the later who exploit and, of course, hate the former. The social world the ideologues envision is a deeply morally fractured one populated by helpless, blameless victims who need protection from the malevolent, menacing bigots who fail to recognize the humanity of those they oppress. The moral and legal order of such a world then must be structured to protect the oppressed and punish the oppressors, and so the moral and legal standards and expectations necessarily differ depending on whether you are an oppressor or one of the oppressed. The mad scramble then commences. You join, if you can, the community of the oppressed, articulate your grievances, agitate for revenge, and demand the assistance and protection of the state. Failing that, retreat, submit, be quiet and hope the political police will leave you in peace.

    You beat me to mentioning the Washington, DC Metro system among the public transportation systems destroyed by promoting incompetent non-whites (blacks in this instance) over more qualified whites.

    A few years back the Washington Times had a great article about the culture within WMATA that has caused its collapse. Here's just the beginning of that excellent article:

    Ninety-seven percent of the bus and train operators at the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority are black, with only six white women out of more than 3,000 drivers, according to Metro documents — a lack of diversity at one of the region’s largest employers that has led to an acknowledgment of failure in affirmative-action documents and spawned a series of lawsuits.

    The homogeneity, interviews with dozens of current and former Metro workers indicated, is a proxy to a clubby culture of favoritism in which merit has little to do with promotions, and accountability, such as noting safety violations, is a career death knell. In typical examples, court and Metro records show, a black man who spent eight years in prison for dealing PCP was promoted to a high-level management position soon after his release, and whites in the same positions as blacks with far less seniority are inexplicably paid less.


    With Metro’s budget chronically strained and reports of mismanagement coming more regularly than trains, interviews and internal records depict a likely root: an environment in which hardworking employees are actively excluded and those who rise are those willing to do the bare minimum — never causing a stir by flagging rampant safety violations, reporting malfeasance or proposing improvements.

    “When the accident happened in 2009, I called a supervisor and said, ‘Is this the one we all dreaded?’ The way workers do their jobs, we all knew it was a matter of time. … The inept get promoted, and the capable get buried. Smart people were put in the corner, ostracized and given nothing to do,” said Christine Townsend, who sued Metro for discrimination and won.

    It is a culture in which a white male engineer near completion of a Ph.D. was passed over for a management position in favor of a black man who was barely literate, multiple staffers said.

    “The average rider wouldn’t believe the things that go on. There are so many easy things we could do to make the system better,” a station manager said. “But they’d never put me in charge because they know I’d make sure others actually did their jobs. They don’t want change. It’s go along to get along.”

    Metro is a quasi-public agency that receives funding from the federal government, Maryland, Virginia and local jurisdictions to operate a regional bus and rail transportation system in the national capital area, but is not beholden to rules that apply to fully governmental entities. With a $2.5 billion operating and capital budget for fiscal 2012, Metrorail serves 86 stations and has 106 miles of track, while Metrobus serves the nation’s capital with 1,500 buses.

    Metro’s affirmative-action plan notes that the 1.4 percent of its bus and train operators who are Hispanic and the 25 percent who are female of any race are “less than reasonably expected.” It does not make note of the 1.5 percent who are white.

    Even in entry-level occupations typically dominated by Hispanics, there are virtually none at Metro. Only one laborer out of 67 is Hispanic; of 540 landscapers, carpenters and cleaners, only 22 are Hispanic. In the national capital region, Hispanics make up 13 percent of adults and blacks comprise 25 percent; white women constitute 29 percent.

    “The odds of such a disparity occurring by chance are statistically infinitesimal,” Ronald A. Schmidt, a lawyer representing 12 white women exploring a class-action lawsuit, wrote in a 2003 letter. “There appears to be an entrenched network of African-American employees at WMATA that is able to steer jobs, promotion, training and other career enhancing benefit to persons of their own racial or ethnic group.”

    The average Metro worker had a $60,000 salary, which rises to $69,000 including overtime. That is more than 71 percent of area residents who had an income in 2010, including 62 percent of whites, census records show.

    White and Hispanic employees who allege discrimination have found a deaf ear at Metro’s civil rights office, whose 17 employees are black. Until at least 1999, that office tracked complaints via a handwritten ledger on a series of taped-together sheets of paper, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times. The system “made determining statistics impossible,” said a civil rights employee from the time.

    In recent months, such antiquated record keeping has allowed employees to steal thousands of dollars that electronic systems easily could have detected — and in more than one case, a culture of complicity has kept prosecutors from trying those who were caught because they feared no clean witness or proper records could be found.

    “There’s a strong sense of nepotism, and it is the culture of Metro,” the civil rights employee said. “It was more of a buddy system than it was merit-based.”

    Metro did not respond to requests for information about workforce demographics.

  • @Krastos the Gluemaker
    Sailer among many others has far too much of a tendency to think Obama is a secret 4D chess mastermind working to destroy America.

    Obama is really a wishy-washy, almost hippie, traditional religious believer, though instantiated as an African American churchian. Shift strict adherence to more old-fashioned theology to New Age optimism and "woo" and there are millions of Obamas out there. Pointing out that his strong oratory was really always just veneer is valid (he had little military/diplomatic/etc experience all things told, nor great policy expertise) but that doesn't excuse the other conspiratoralizing.

    The only question is ultimately whether the things Obama did poorly were random chaotic happenstances due to laziness or due to malice on the part of others around (other politicians, deep state) but not much by Obama himself, and certainly not much beyond the public eye.

    Assuming Obama is orchestrating things behind the scenes doesn't add up; almost whatever you think he is or was doing, honestly, still results in the conclusion that he's not actually competent at doing it. Secretly working for the neocons? Iraq/Syria still disasters. Trying to make the Dems a one party state? It's extremely obvious the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party is ascendent and even if one thought Obama was a full gung ho revolutionary that just makes him an idiot who helped mess up his own party for no gains. So Occam's Razor - just laziness, he never actually had any grand schemes.

I’m with Krastos on this one. He’s a limited, lazy tool who got very lucky. He will keep chugging away as long he has has venues where he can talk about himself and can walk away with suitcases of money.

    It will be interesting to see how he delivers on that 4o or 60 million dollar contract for his presidential memoirs, a wee bit of dilemma, I would think, for him. How is he going to slip a ghost writer past everyone and still maintain the fiction of being a literary wonder?

    Wha?! A third autobiography?!

    First: How many people have written three autobiographies? (Actually, I kinda answered my own question: that veterinarian who wrote 'The Lord Made Them All' series. Any others?)

    Second: Is there another person in all human history with a lower ratio of accomplishment to page count?

    Third: How many people will read THE WHOLE DAM THING? Other than book reviewers, I predict precisely one: the Mocha Messiah hisself.

    There isn't much indication that Obama has a distinctive viewpoint at all. He has attitudes, and these attitudes are what's the mode among his social set. You look at Obama and you see one of two characters: a local TV news anchor, or...the deputy dean of students at one of the local colleges. His administration's policies were the resultant of the vectors at work in the Democratic Party.

  • “And it is almost always elites who precipitate mass murder. One can get a sense of when it is going to happen through paying attention to their rhetoric, and today it’s pretty clear that they’re encouraging a “culling”.

    Exactly! Lenin set the standard for most of the 20th-century exterminator-bound elites (Mao, Pol Pot, Castro, etc.)

    Prior to taking power Lenin’s vocabulary for any opposition was taken out of a pest-control manual — “bed bugs, cockroaches, vermin, scum.”

    In power, sanitize:

    In a 1922 letter to his ruling Politboro, Lenin outlined his approach to making the show trials have maximum impact on public opinion — executions, public ones just to make sure everyone got the message. “The result,” he wrote, “of the trial is to be the execution, by public shooting, of a large number of the Chuya Black Hundreds as well as the shooting of as many as possible from Moscow and other important religious centers… The more we shoot, the better it will be for us.” [Black Book of Communism, Harvard University Press, 1999, pp 125-26.]

    Castro and his gang learned from the Leninists ... find and kill all of your opponents (who, whom, who cares) quickly and completely to prevent them from organizing against you. This makes Machiavellian sense: they might succeed against you unless you act immediately and decisively. Your willingness to massacre opponents as well as those with the power to emerge as opponents will serve as a message to anyone contemplating contrary thoughts, much less actions.

    Castro and his inner circle had had a more recent experience with the alternative in Nicaragua. A reformer took power but did not immediately kill his opponents when he had the power and the opportunity to do so. The opponents organized a coup against him, murdered him, and reseized power ... the end of the reform movement.

    Questions:

    Does this mean that democracy and power politics in extremis are inherently incompatible?

    Is the liberal left (a euphemism for Marxism) starting to play power politics both in America and Europe?

    Is Lenin their role model?

Ironically, the major difference is that whites in Minnesota are the demographic majority and with an attitude adjustment could quickly put a stop to this catastrophe in the making. This is why the left is doubling down on open borders immigration. When the numbers flip we (the tried and convicted oppressors) will be at the mercy of the oppressed, and don’t expect forgiveness. “Reconciliation” will be code for white groveling and “expropriation” will be the mother of all euphemisms.

But how can anybody expect New York Times editor Jonathan Weisman to remember all the way back to 2017?...
  • “But American Jews need to assert a voice in the public arena, to reshape our quiescent institutions and mold them in our image. And Jewish leadership must reflect its congregants, who are not sheep.”

    And just what might “our image” look like or be like, and what collective entity does the “our” refer to? Is he saying (and it seems like it to me) that American institutions should be molded to reflect a Jewish (3% of the population) image? Imagine the hysterical, frothing at the mouth reaction of Weisman and his ilk if a southern Baptist or Irish-American Catholic had written — “American Catholics (Baptists) need to assert a voice in the public arena, to reshape our quiescent institutions and mold them in our image.” Kristallnacht would be just days away.

    “Mr. Cernovich advocates I.Q. tests for immigrants and ‘no white guilt’.”

    Weisman is unhappy because fellow Jew, Josh Mandel, defends Cernovich. This is interesting. Mandel is a conservative Republican Jew who happens to live in Ohio and around a lot of white gentile working class people, and he knows what a bullshit, extortionist ploy “white guilt” is. Weisman is a typical left-wing Jew who lives in the Manhattan bubble: only left-wing Jews are real Jews. Weisman has a vested interest in ramping up white guilt, the centerpiece of identity politics, tirelessly propagandized by the NYT. Jews must always be victims, which affirms their virtue and solidifies their grasp on entitlements. Liberal Jews have ontologized the Hollocaust, the essence and permanence of evil, making them unique in suffering with a permanent enemy that is always out there, threatening and ready to repeat history.

    Weisman caps it off by citing the Jewish run SPLC which specializes in smearing even moderately conservative Christians. SPLC has become fabulously rich through fundraising off of the myth of a ubiquitous Klan. Morris Dees who built it is a Bernie Madoff-style con-artist specializing in scaring rich white liberals to give him lots of money to fight (largely) fictitious right-wing hordes pouring out of America’s farms and small towns.

The one I attended at Central Michigan University was about why white dentists would not hire black dental hygienist graduates even though there was a high demand for them. He’s a lefty, but an older white numbers guy, so maybe something of interest.

Hubby Juan brought in Pedro Ara from Spain who embalmed her thus enabling Sr Peron to cart her away with him when he got chased out of Argentina in 1955 — the dead spouse followed the deposed dictator around for 17 or so years. Peron’s 2nd wife, Isabella, was assigned to “groom” her during Peron’s exile in Madrid. He kept her corpse in his apartment. She was finally deposited in the La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires when Peron returned in the early 70s, one of the most intriguing cemeteries you will ever visit.

  • When I was six, my family moved to Grand Rapids (GR), Michigan in the early 1950s into a very nice upstairs apartment on Wealthy Street (WS). WS was in the middle of GR, a racially mixed, blue collar neighborhood that was a great place to live for people of modest means. The streets were completely safe (my sisters walked to the local drug store and to evening church by themselves in the evenings). There was no crime and very little racial tension or hostility. People had jobs, worked very hard and the families stayed together.

    Then came the onslaught of the 1960s with all of its destructive, ideological fury. It took only fifteen or so years to turn the WS neighborhood into a wretched slum, a dangerous, crime ridden, decaying drug zone occupied by single girls making lots of babies and (legally) unemployed, uneducated black males full of lots of resentment. All the whites had fled to the suburbs. This scenario was replicated all across the country in our once safe and affordable cities.

    So, was it really Uncle Joe, or Diego, who split Bronstein's brain?

    “So, was it really Uncle Joe, or Diego, who split Bronstein’s brain?”

    A Soviet-trained Spaniard, Ramon Mercader. He seduced a homely woman from Trotsky’s entourage in his compound in Mexico City and managed to get a one-on-one in Trotsky’s study and bopped him with the alpine ax. Trotsky didn’t go down easily. Mercader got 20 years in a Mexican prison, ended up in the Soviet Union, died as a decorated hero.

    A Cuban novelist, Leonardo Padura recently wrote a fantastic historical novel covering Mercader’s life.

  • “The main culprit is diversity–in the broad sense, not just the juxtaposition of races, but the mixing of ideas and philosophies with no dominant culture to maintain order. Current policies promoting this mess are insane.”

    An essay by Amy Wax in a recent issue of the Wall Street Journal’s Weekend in Review reveals not just the insanity of this mess, but how utterly desperate and hopeless it is. In it she recounts the response of a large number of her colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law to an op ed she wrote suggesting that students and professors at American colleges and universities should stop calling people horrible names when they don’t like what they say. “Be rational, not emotional” to paraphrase in a nutshell was her point. For this outrage (so obvious as to be banal a couple of decades ago), her colleagues at one of the country’s top law schools want her fired for being a Nazi, a Klansman (she’s a Jew), and of course, a racist. Her dean wanted her to go on sabbatical for a year. She was pulled from teaching a first-year course. We’ve been transported back to the Soviet Union in the 1930s.
    Game, set, match. It’s over.

    First, the irony of Obama getting hosed by his own dogma is very very satisfying. Affirmative action hires are no substitute for technical or artistic expertise. Both of the hired "artists" were in over their heads, and many, many people prop them up as if they weren't.

    The artistic choices of the artist who tried to draw Michelle is bogus, since she couldn't draw a realistic painting to begin with. Picasso could draw a realistic painting. It was after he'd mastered the fundamentals that he went into abstract paintings. That is why he is legit. To try to apply a lack of technical expertise in your field as art is bogus. She painted a juvenile level picture of Michelle because she had no other choice. It lacks proper perspective, it lacks dynamic range. It is low-brow graffiti.

    Barack's picture, though it exhibits more technical expertise by the artist(s), is third-world tacky. Better suited to the Vice Admiral of the Great Navy of Kazakhstan, than the President of the United States. The fact that these pictures are for posterity makes me very very happy.

    I've always maintained that Obama was racially confused, and his decisions would reflect his inner turmoil, so the painting is unintentionally perfect for him:

    A random, sad chaotic mix, signifying nothing.

    A big mistake with unqualified confidence.

    This is him–and for 8 years, it was us.

    “I’ve always maintained that Obama was racially confused, and his decisions would reflect his inner turmoil, so the painting is unintentionally perfect for him….”

    Certainly, Obama is obsessed with race, and his confusion and inner turmoil turned into his nasty practice of projecting his resentment, rancor and hostility onto white people.

  • @Intelligent Dasein

    As staunch defenders of the much-maligned concept of the intelligence quotient, these scientists found vindication in the Supreme Court’s embrace of intelligence testing, though they cautioned that the Justices’ understanding of the complex subject was simplistic.
     
    Perhaps the argument over the meaning of the intelligence quotient has become altogether too involved. One does not need to be a rock solid believer in the scientific veracity of IQ in order to see that the inability to score above 70 on what is essentially just a puzzle test is indicative of poor mental faculties.

    But on the other hand, I think the judges erred in this decision. There is no good reason for limiting capital punishment only to those who are aware of the moral gravity of their crimes. A dumb, senseless killer should also be put to death, if only to protect the public and provide recompense to the victims.

    “There is no good reason for limiting capital punishment only to those who are aware of the moral gravity of their crimes. A dumb, senseless killer should also be put to death, if only to protect the public and provide recompense to the victims.”

    Also, if the mental state of not being “aware of the moral gravity of their crimes” was a reason not to execute a convicted murderer, you would have to exempt (relatively) high IQ psychopaths like Ted Bundy since psycho-sociopathic killers like Bundy operate without any moral faculties. The sickening depravity of the people (smart or stupid) who end up on death row makes the factor of intelligence complete irrelevant in determining their fate.
