    Harper Lee’s death is making international headlines, though she is known for only one accomplishment: To Kill a Mockingbird. The book reinforced the prejudices of the America’s elite and earned Lee eternal adulation by showing a heroic liberal lawyer, Atticus Finch, standing up to the racist, small-minded segregationist South. But last year’s release of Go...

  • I haven’t read the new book (and it’s been a while since I read the old one), but – to me – this actually represents the highest form of justice, when one overcomes one’s own prejudice to make sure justice is meted. It is easy to want justice for someone you already side with, that is reflexive and nothing out of the ordinary – tribes have acted on that notion since antiquity.

    “O you who believe, stand out firmly for God, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just! That is nearer to righteousness. And fear God; indeed, God is acquainted with what you do.” (5:8)

    I'm sick of seeing and reading stuff like this.

    There is one major problem with this video, and it's the same problem that infests the entire PUA paradigm. Their fundamental premise is flawed.

    It is simply not true that women are constantly falling for "dominant, aggressive men." I happen to be a dominant, aggressive man, and it has never been particularly helpful to me when it came to getting women. I came up the hard way in life; my personal history contains harrowing tails of opposition, abuse, and betrayal. I've had to fight hard for everything I've ever had. The mere fact that I continue to succeed against the odds, that I've had to tap in to deeper reservoirs of will and courage than most people ever experience, tends to make me something of a freak, and women don't often go for that.

    Women like normal men, men that they feel safe around and that do not present too much of a threat to their egos. They like feeling that they have some degree of control within a relationship, and that of course entails a mutually compatible worldview. Women do not fall for genuine "bad boys" who are hard and independent; however, within the normal-man paradigm, they do often fall for the idiots and douche bags who are the most superficially fashionable. Women do have a weakness when it comes to the opposite sex, but it is not the "alpha male." Social acceptability, attention, fashion, and vanity---these are the perennial weaknesses of women.

    I happen to like women a lot and, generally speaking, I am sympathetic to their plight. The destiny that they have--that of being the weaker vessel, of having the duty of bearing children---entitles them to the love and protection of a man. For a man who is a true man, the act of loving a woman always involves something of a condescension (the linguistic artifact of "falling" in love implies that we are in some sense thrown off the high pedestal of our dignity when we consent to be captured by a female and her domestic needs) but it is also a great vocation, a great responsibility, and a great gift from the Most High. And it bears wonderful fruits; the love, loyalty, and respect of a good woman can give a man more energy and self-confidence than he ever imagined. But in order for this happy arrangement to work, women have to do their part. They have to be submissive and appreciative. They have to agree to be the female. And since pridefulness is the characteristic flaw of all the sons and daughters of Adam, infecting both men and women equally but less suitable to the essential nature of women, this means that women sometimes need to deny their own nature in a particularly violent way. That is their cross to bear.

    It is very irresponsible of society to let women have a direct say in public affairs, to allow them to give heed to their basest tendencies. In that respect I agree with the video. It is up to men to put a stop to this sort of thing. Feminism is very, very bad.

    Well stated, my friend. When both man and women are playing their complimentary roles in unison, it is a beautiful and powerful thing. In fact it is the cornerstone of any civilization. All other things; politics, economy, crime are details. A people who get this thing right won’t have to sweat the other stuff as much.

  • A good citizen would speak out to defend the unjustly accused even if it hurt some people’s feelings because they had been misled as to where the responsibility lies for their failure.

    You are not going to argue that whites are more unfairly treated in America then blacks — are you?

    The refined whites say nothing about what deep down they know is true (blacks cannot match the same objective norms as whites) out of fear. Unfortunately, niceness often goes with a certain cowardice.
     
    Every day I bite my tongue not wishing to offend someone.

    Am I a weakling -- or a good citizen?

    Does fear rule me or kindness?

    Do I have to say the truth and offend?

    Perhaps it is braver to shoulder blame to protect those who are ill equipped to face the truth. But white sociology professors and writers talking about Southern whites, especially working class whites, as malevolent are entering a guilty plea for others to exculpate themselves.

    A good citizen would speak out to defend the unjustly accused even if it hurt some people’s feelings because they had been misled as to where the responsibility lies for their failure.

    Accusations made against someone who is forbearing to make any explanation or defence will spiral out of control very quickly.

    The thing is, book-Atticus is not a liberal at all. At one point, he responds to Scout telling him that the kids in her school are saying that he's a liberal by saying "I'm as liberal as Cotton Tom Heflin."

    What he is is an old-fashioned Southern gentleman, who is not willing to see a man, even a black man, convicted of a crime that he did not commit.

    Too many Ameridiots get their ideas about books from the movies made from them, and this is a prime example. Movie-Atticus was a liberal, at least that's how I remember it (I saw the movie when I was very young.)

    Quite so. The surprising revelation was not very surprising at all to anyone who read the book with anything more than a superficial understanding.

    There is one major problem with this video, and it's the same problem that infests the entire PUA paradigm. Their fundamental premise is flawed.

    It is simply not true that women are constantly falling for "dominant, aggressive men." I happen to be a dominant, aggressive man, and it has never been particularly helpful to me when it came to getting women. I came up the hard way in life; my personal history contains harrowing tails of opposition, abuse, and betrayal. I've had to fight hard for everything I've ever had. The mere fact that I continue to succeed against the odds, that I've had to tap in to deeper reservoirs of will and courage than most people ever experience, tends to make me something of a freak, and women don't often go for that.

    Women like normal men, men that they feel safe around and that do not present too much of a threat to their egos. They like feeling that they have some degree of control within a relationship, and that of course entails a mutually compatible worldview. Women do not fall for genuine "bad boys" who are hard and independent; however, within the normal-man paradigm, they do often fall for the idiots and douche bags who are the most superficially fashionable. Women do have a weakness when it comes to the opposite sex, but it is not the "alpha male." Social acceptability, attention, fashion, and vanity---these are the perennial weaknesses of women.

    I happen to like women a lot and, generally speaking, I am sympathetic to their plight. The destiny that they have--that of being the weaker vessel, of having the duty of bearing children---entitles them to the love and protection of a man. For a man who is a true man, the act of loving a woman always involves something of a condescension (the linguistic artifact of "falling" in love implies that we are in some sense thrown off the high pedestal of our dignity when we consent to be captured by a female and her domestic needs) but it is also a great vocation, a great responsibility, and a great gift from the Most High. And it bears wonderful fruits; the love, loyalty, and respect of a good woman can give a man more energy and self-confidence than he ever imagined. But in order for this happy arrangement to work, women have to do their part. They have to be submissive and appreciative. They have to agree to be the female. And since pridefulness is the characteristic flaw of all the sons and daughters of Adam, infecting both men and women equally but less suitable to the essential nature of women, this means that women sometimes need to deny their own nature in a particularly violent way. That is their cross to bear.

    It is very irresponsible of society to let women have a direct say in public affairs, to allow them to give heed to their basest tendencies. In that respect I agree with the video. It is up to men to put a stop to this sort of thing. Feminism is very, very bad.

    Brilliant, simply brilliant. It’s all about the ego. Pride, vanity, selfishness, many more accurate terms, call it what you will It’s about attracting a “mate” and then conning him into doing all the work, once the “honeymoon” is over.

    Women are much craftier at hiding it, but it’s always been the same-game.

  • To former U.S. poet laureate Natasha Trethewey, who is black, this is “the paradox at the heart of ‘Watchman’ that many white Americans still cannot or will not comprehend: that one can at once believe in the ideal of “justice for all” — as Atticus once purported to — and yet maintain a deeply ingrained and unexamined notion of racial difference.”

    Indeed. The best friends and benefactors the Black race ever had were Alabama governor, George Wallace and Georgia governor, Lester Mattox. And there have been many others.

    Perhaps it is braver to shoulder blame to protect those who are ill equipped to face the truth. But white sociology professors and writers talking about Southern whites, especially working class whites, as malevolent are entering a guilty plea for others to exculpate themselves.

    A good citizen would speak out to defend the unjustly accused even if it hurt some people's feelings because they had been misled as to where the responsibility lies for their failure.

    Accusations made against someone who is forbearing to make any explanation or defence will spiral out of control very quickly.

    "that one can at once believe in the ideal of 'justice for all' — as Atticus once purported to — and yet maintain a deeply ingrained and unexamined notion of racial difference.”

    She got it backwards.

    It is through examination and experience that white people(honest ones) realized that racial differences are real and that blacks are a threat to whites. Heck, even Hispanics don't like blacks after much experience. Too many blacks are like Jack Johnsons kicking white ass and acting obnoxious and bullying.

    It is PC-ingraining and lack of examination that lead to the bogus & naive belief that race is a myth. Surely even blacks don't believe that they are merely white people with black skin.

    Absolutely! Blacks, Asians do not believe that we are all the same under the skin. A Black co-worker once told my Native-American co-worker that “Black people don’t want to live around white people cuz white people is too quiet. Black people like they noise”, she said. One of the redneck, toothless security guards at my place of employment was dispassionately watching a group of Black people who were talking and yukking it up at high volume and asked me, ” Why are Black people so noisy”? Now, of course, there are noisy whites and quiet Blacks, but there are no generalizations that are not generally true.

  • I keep being surprised, though perhaps I shouldn’t be, how the mental furniture of liberals resembles that of a particularly bright and precocious 8 year old- namely Lisa Simpson. Every 10 years or so you can catch on TV the exact moment their heart collectively rips in half as some hero is revealed to be less than perfect. Thomas Jefferson. FDR. And now the not-quite-non-fictional Atticus Finch (I’ve already met several 20-something man-boys apparently named in his honor). “Let me help you, George Washington!” “Say it ain’t so, Atticus!”

    More in my ballpark was an excellent early-90′s HBO TV movie about the Dreyfus Affair where Dreyfuss’s lawyer is played by- well, Richard Dreyfuss. Dreyfuss the 19th Century French officer is given very little screen time, and the movie is all about the lawyer, who is very clearly characterized as- if not exactly anti-Semitic- certainly disliking of Jews. And that’s the movie’s point- doing the honorable thing is more honorable when done against one’s one personal preferences and tastes. What a less baby-ish America was once ours.

    Sure, I understand that. But my point is that this an exceptional article, and I want to see what others think of it before the tsunami of black true crime stories hits. Wasn't it you, on the Cathey thread, who acknowledged a propensity for steering discussion elsewhere? And now here you go, again.

    As it seems important to you, I must admit that "iffen" is, without doubt, well and broadly educated, highly cultured, and one of the sharpest knives in the drawer here. The "bystanders" remark is over my head -- please explain that one to me if you need to further participate OT.

    I do agree with you that the Cathey article and this one are both very good. I like good comments as much as you do, maybe more.

    My comment on your comment was to point out that it wasn’t worth our time for you to try and direct the comments. I also note that you got your jab in about the MSM reporting on blacks while telling everyone else that they shouldn’t make the same point.

    I do not try to steer discussion. I said that sometimes I read comments and forget to think about how the comment relates to the article before I make a comment.

    The bystander example is just another way of saying that a writer cannot know who will be impacted by the writing and in what manner.

    ON TOPIC As you said the article was well written. The last paragraph that juxtaposes a non-ideological Justice Scalia with the bad ole ideological left brought tears to my eyes.

  • POLITICO points to moderate segregationists, Grover Hall and Bibb Graves, who defended the Scottsboro Boys, a group of black men falsely accused of raping a white woman.

    Two young white women actually, and one could point to slavery period when slaveholders, by hiring good defence lawyers, frequently secured acquittals for their blacks accused of raping free white women. The memory of those cases and the depredations of black slaves under the protection of their masters lasted for generations after. Southern slave owners’ lawyers defended black slaves (very often successfully) from rape allegations by poor white girls by claiming that the girls were prostitutes or the daughters of prostitutes.

    The Scottsboro Boys claimed that they had not had sex with Ruby or Victoria but the 12 or 13 years old youngest in the group of blacks told reporters who arrived immediately after the rape arrests that had seen the girls being raped by some his companions on the train.

    Price and Bates were working class women, but protected from defence lawyers’ character assassination tactics in court, although in time honoured fashion they were accused of being whores. A pamphlet campaign claimed that Victoria Price was a prostitute particularly specialising in blacks who had boasted that she could take on several black men at a time. Decades later Price won a large settlement from NBC over the lies they told in their Scottsboro Boys drama, Bates died before NBC settled the case. NBC relied on the supposedly definitive book of the case which said both were prostitutes and now dead . The received version of this case you will read stems from that same book, which is inaccurate in many important instances.

    On being examined after making their complaint, Victoria Price and Ruby Bates were found to have had sex recently, their vaginas were reddened and flushed looking. Bates had a notably large amount of semen in her when she was examined by Doctor Bridges. The second, newly qualified, doctor Lynch thought the women were lying because they had no lacerations. But modern opinion is against such a conclusion as experienced women have involuntary physiological responses that protect against injury during rape. Neither were virgins, and many proven victims of sexual assault have no injuries whatsoever. Fact is the testimony of sex two days prior to the time of the rapes can’t explain Bridges’s evidence, and modern science supports Bridges feeling that lack of injuries to the women’s vaginas proves little or nothing.

    Haywood Patterson the oldest at 18, stabbed a man in prison, and was found to have a weapon on him when the boys were taken to the governor, who was considering their early release.. Patterson later killed a man in a bar. He wasn’t the only one of those convicted to later kill.

  • I thank Mr. Reid for alerting me to J.J. Kilpatrick’s efforts on behalf of the black man charged with rape. I was always aware of Kilpatrick and his views (with which I heartily agree), but somehow never knew that story.

    On the merits, Reid is of course right that the main criticism of AA has to be it’s unfairness to whites rather than the “mismatch problem for blacks.” Still, with regard to lawyers it has to be said that most, if not all, of the effect would be mitigated if only the industry weren’t so rife with snobbery. In 1996 I spoke with a young partner at a garden variety
    San Francisco insurance firm which was making oodles of money defending asbestos cases. He told me that his firm, whose name partners attended what would now be considered a third tier law school, only hired from Harvard, Stanford and Columbia and that he himself (T-14 school ’92) would not be hired as of ’96. This is obviously a ridiculous situation.

  • In 1993, Left-wing Hofstra Law professor Monroe Freedman criticized the Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird, saying “Except under compulsion of a court appointment, Finch never attempts to change the racism and sexism that permeate the life of Maycomb” apart from defending Tom Robinson.

    Freedman also criticized Finch for not hating all white racists, in particular calling the leader of the lynch mob “basically a good man”. Even worse, Finch makes a sexist joke about Eleanor Roosevelt. This makes him a “passive participant in that pervasive injustice.”

    Blacks can’t understand why the lives white Southerners didn’t revolve around making life better for some other group – like black people – rather than themselves. (After all, don’t modern black lives revolve around making life better for non-blacks?)

    This is why so many black academics make such incompetent historians – it seems impossible for so many of them to see the past through anything other than modern eyes. They want to shrink or constrict the historical narrative, not expand it. This not unlike what children want to do in order to make things more understandable to them…or as Atticus Finch said:

    that one can at once believe in the ideal of “justice for all” — as Atticus once purported to — and yet maintain a deeply ingrained and unexamined notion of racial difference.”
     
    "unexamined", or patently obvious?

    Maybe one reason racial differences seem "deeply ingrained" is because they're glaringly self-evident. Even the sub-tribes of the races are noticeably different. The Hutus and Tutsis of Rwanda can be distinguished by looking at them. The reason blacks are over-represented in the NBA is due to racial differences and the unequal distribution of abilities and proclivities between the races of humans.

    But recognizing the obvious is not the same as advocating that the races should be treated differently by the law. That's absurd. (even if that is what we do today)

    The problem with the question of race in the Western world is that we're all supposed to pretend that 'there is no such thing as race' but that all members of the white race are eternally guilty, and that the black race (and all the others) are eternal victims of white racism. Evidence of this racism, for instance is the over-representation of blacks in the criminal justice system and the white/black achievement gap in education and/or economic outcome. Since we're all marinated in the carefully controlled matrix of absurdity that is our media-programmed culture; that the only differences between the races are the 'color of the skin'- any differences in outcome must be a consequence of factors other than race, and hence you get to the culprit; white racism.

    And the obvious solution to this "deeply ingrained" racism is obviously the racial elimination of the offending race by immigration, forced integration and cultural shame of

    http://praag.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/whites_so_sorry.jpg

    and laws against the white race.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disparate_impact

    If you read the "reasoning" for 'disparate impact' laws, just the fact that your software company hires more Indians (dot) than Africans, is prima facie proof of racial discrimination requiring a legal remedy, because we're all supposed to pretend that there are no racial (or gender) differences.

    And this is just one more proof of how our society has gone insane.

    "unexamined", or patently obvious?

    Maybe one reason racial differences seem "deeply ingrained" is because they're glaringly self-evident. Even the sub-tribes of the races are noticeably different. The Hutus and Tutsis of Rwanda can be distinguished by looking at them. The reason blacks are over-represented in the NBA is due to racial differences and the unequal distribution of abilities and proclivities between the races of humans.

    But recognizing the obvious is not the same as advocating that the races should be treated differently by the law. That's absurd. (even if that is what we do today)

    The problem with the question of race in the Western world is that we're all supposed to pretend that 'there is no such thing as race' but that all members of the white race are eternally guilty, and that the black race (and all the others) are eternal victims of white racism. Evidence of this racism, for instance is the over-representation of blacks in the criminal justice system and the white/black achievement gap in education and/or economic outcome. Since we're all marinated in the carefully controlled matrix of absurdity that is our media-programmed culture; that the only differences between the races are the 'color of the skin'- any differences in outcome must be a consequence of factors other than race, and hence you get to the culprit; white racism.

    And the obvious solution to this "deeply ingrained" racism is obviously the racial elimination of the offending race by immigration, forced integration and cultural shame of

    and laws against the white race.

    If you read the "reasoning" for 'disparate impact' laws, just the fact that your software company hires more Indians (dot) than Africans, is prima facie proof of racial discrimination requiring a legal remedy, because we're all supposed to pretend that there are no racial (or gender) differences.

    And this is just one more proof of how our society has gone insane.

    If you haven’t already, read “A Troublesome Inheritance” by Nicholas Wade, who examines at length the very subject of racial differences from the standpoint of genetics. Mr. Wade is a science reporter, a journalist who was only doing what a journalist is supposed to do–let the story take him/her to wherever it leads. For this, he caught hell from the PC crowd.

    She got it backwards.

    It is through examination and experience that white people(honest ones) realized that racial differences are real and that blacks are a threat to whites. Heck, even Hispanics don’t like blacks after much experience. Too many blacks are like Jack Johnsons kicking white ass and acting obnoxious and bullying.

    It is PC-ingraining and lack of examination that lead to the bogus & naive belief that race is a myth. Surely even blacks don’t believe that they are merely white people with black skin.

One of the redneck, toothless security guards at my place of employment was dispassionately watching a group of Black people who were talking and yukking it up at high volume and asked me, " Why are Black people so noisy"?

    It would be interesting to see how many mid-20th Century writers helped get convicts out of prison as unjustly convicted, only to see them wind up back in prison for crimes that sound suspiciously like the original ones they were convicted of.

    Besides Kilpatrick's Rogers, there was Norman Mailer's Jack Abbott and William F. Buckley's Edgar Smith. There were probably a few others. It was sort of a regular pattern in the postwar era.

    To his credit, Harper Lee's childhood friend Truman Capote didn't lose sight of the fact that the criminals he profiled in "In Cold Blood" (which Lee helped him research while waiting for her book to be published) really were bad guys.

  • Both the early GSaW and the later clearly Cultural Marxist influenced TKaM were attempts by Harper Lee to deal with the powerful influence her father Amasa Coleman Lee had on her family.

    So far only sketchy fragments have been written on the life of the real Amasa Coleman Lee.

    However, what appears to be know is that as a young attorney Amasa Coleman Lee was tasked with the defense of a black father and son who were found guilty and executed for the murder of a white store owner. The trial apparently put a great strain on the family and was a factor in Harper Lee’s mother having a severe nervous breakdown when Harper Lee was a small child and led to her early death when Harper Lee was 25.

    Afterwards Amasa Coleman Lee became a small town journalist and published a local paper. ACL then apparently went on to champion the cause of a mentally impaired black ex-con convicted and sentenced to death for raping an also unstable white woman. His argument against the death penalty in this case was successful.

    And yes Amasa Coleman Lee appears to have been a member of the local White Citizens Council and gave speeches and wrote articles on their behalf.

    https://prezi.com/k-itaqtvzijy/biography-of-harper-lee/

    Surely much of Asama Coleman Lee’s life remains to be finally uncovered and written about. Remember Harper Lee’s protective older sister and later gatekeeper/caregiver for decades died just a couple of years ago. As a lawyer in the family practice Alice Lee’s papers should be able to tell the whole story.

    Somebody on the Alt Right should be up to the task.

    I'm sick of seeing and reading stuff like this.

    There is one major problem with this video, and it's the same problem that infests the entire PUA paradigm. Their fundamental premise is flawed.

    It is simply not true that women are constantly falling for "dominant, aggressive men." I happen to be a dominant, aggressive man, and it has never been particularly helpful to me when it came to getting women. I came up the hard way in life; my personal history contains harrowing tails of opposition, abuse, and betrayal. I've had to fight hard for everything I've ever had. The mere fact that I continue to succeed against the odds, that I've had to tap in to deeper reservoirs of will and courage than most people ever experience, tends to make me something of a freak, and women don't often go for that.

    Women like normal men, men that they feel safe around and that do not present too much of a threat to their egos. They like feeling that they have some degree of control within a relationship, and that of course entails a mutually compatible worldview. Women do not fall for genuine "bad boys" who are hard and independent; however, within the normal-man paradigm, they do often fall for the idiots and douche bags who are the most superficially fashionable. Women do have a weakness when it comes to the opposite sex, but it is not the "alpha male." Social acceptability, attention, fashion, and vanity---these are the perennial weaknesses of women.

    I happen to like women a lot and, generally speaking, I am sympathetic to their plight. The destiny that they have--that of being the weaker vessel, of having the duty of bearing children---entitles them to the love and protection of a man. For a man who is a true man, the act of loving a woman always involves something of a condescension (the linguistic artifact of "falling" in love implies that we are in some sense thrown off the high pedestal of our dignity when we consent to be captured by a female and her domestic needs) but it is also a great vocation, a great responsibility, and a great gift from the Most High. And it bears wonderful fruits; the love, loyalty, and respect of a good woman can give a man more energy and self-confidence than he ever imagined. But in order for this happy arrangement to work, women have to do their part. They have to be submissive and appreciative. They have to agree to be the female. And since pridefulness is the characteristic flaw of all the sons and daughters of Adam, infecting both men and women equally but less suitable to the essential nature of women, this means that women sometimes need to deny their own nature in a particularly violent way. That is their cross to bear.

    It is very irresponsible of society to let women have a direct say in public affairs, to allow them to give heed to their basest tendencies. In that respect I agree with the video. It is up to men to put a stop to this sort of thing. Feminism is very, very bad.

    Pardon the pun – but everything is not “black and white.”

    The grand purpose of a university is to advance society – to educate the young, and to further human knowledge and understanding of each other and our universe. Universities are supported by society and the community. Thus they have a community purpose. Universities have a group purpose and a purpose to advance the individual.

    Is it a value to the community to have blacks in these universities? Is an integrated society a value to our American community. The answers are Yes and Yes.

    There are negatives for the individuals, both black and white – but in the long run the interests of society must prevail – in the long run it is a plus for America.

    With all that said, affirmative action should not go no forever.

    “The grand purpose of a university is to advance society.”

    If you consider the unmerited exclusion of Whites from the institutions they created to be an advance of society, maybe you’re the type of racist who is part of the problem.

  • To heck with Asians. They don’t care about whites, so we shouldn’t care about them. What is purposely overlooked in the affirmative action debate is the negative impact and toll it has taken on whites who’ve been unable to attend schools they are qualified to attend and attain jobs and promotions they are qualified to have. The economic impact to whites is staggering and is probably in the tens of billions if not hundreds.

    Instead of equality of opportunity we now have equality of outcome. We have a race and gender spoils system. In Obama’s America if blacks and Latinos can’t meet standards then those standards must be dumbed down to suit them. Many corporations routinely hire lesser qualified non-white minorities over better qualified whites to meet “diversity targets”.

    Do you include Turkey and Indonesia in your implied condemnation of the way they treat Christians and Jews?

    What distinctions could be made in your opinion between different Christians and Jews comparable to the making of a distinction between Wahabists/Salafists and others?

    Exactly what distinctions should I make between the Wahabist-financed Saudi Sunnis that drove planes into the WTC and the Persian Shiites that daily threaten to incinerate the United States in a nuclear lake of fire? Hmmm, how to make distinctions between those and the various flavors of Syrians and Iraqi Sunnis and Shiites that want to install a caliphate here and are hard at work installing it in Europe? How about the Shia networks in Michigan where the fathers murder the daughters over “honor” right here in the States? Where, Wizz, do I draw distinctions? Everywhere I turn, the extremists of each particular group are blowing us up and breaking things and the moderates are zip-lip and the Mosques are the common thread through all of it.

    Let’s talk countries, since you demand I make distinctions, shall we? Shall I make distinctions between the Saudis who behead their “enemies” by the dozens, who horsewhip their women? Or the Iranians who stone their women and homosexuals to death? What distinctions do I draw between the Sunnis of ISIS/ISIL who behead their enemies on the beaches of Syria, Libya, not to mention any westerner that happens to be caught in their web? They’re more progressive than Iran, however, they throw their homosexuals off the roof of tall buildings, however. You want distinctions? There. Distinctions.

    I personally don’t give a tinker’s damn for the “distinctions”. The root of it is Allah and Muhammad, the strategy is the Koran, the financial networks and logistics chain is via the Mosque. And I want it torn down. That’s it. That’s all I have to say on the matter. I know we won’t do what the WW2 generation did, the West is too soft and there’s your distinction in Christians of today. 70 years back, Christian men would have made Islam-in-general and at-large a religion and culture practiced only in Hell. Christian men of today? They are led around by the nose by women these Christian “men”. Christian men are soft, corrupt, ruled by feminist women that have filled the Western Armies and Navies with women, homosexuals and trans-genders and the West will be easy pickings for the flavor-of-0f-the-month Islamic/Muslim ideology bent on domination. Islam should stop bombing. Stop the attacks, risk nothing that would arouse Christian ire. Just sneak up and take over. It will be so EASY. It IS so easy, the West is being handed over on a silver platter.

    Muslims will pick it all off, region by region. The only impediment to a caliphate in the United States inside of even 30-50 years, at least within regions, is there may be resistance from Hispanic men, another culture stronger than the soft, perverted cowardly feminist society that “rules” the U.S. today. The Dundus, the Blacks, they’ll be easy, the Hispanic men make short work of Dindus everywhere they settle and I can easily imagine Muslims dispensing with American Black Dindu everywhere Muslims settle. Islam will get no work out of American Dindu, they need to be camped with their women, isolated and armed, they’ll take care of each other as they do in the big cities Islam will want to occupy one day. All groups of course, will need a few high-IQ white men around to keep the water and electricity and farms running. Islam needs to be smart about whom to elevate and whom to dispense with as they take over.

    I’m sorry the West is so weak, but there you have it. At least as Islam takes over, the soft, gay, perverted Left and the hateful feminist influence will be smashed. They made the takeover of the West by Islam possible. It will be good to see the Western-Feminist Left destroyed. I will take much satisfaction in their destruction. The Left are not Christians, they are not Muslim, they are not Jews, they are only a perverted, soft, corrupt form of humanity. As long as I and my own are safe (and I will see to that), I’ll be happy to see the fall of the Liberal Left. They certainly do not care for me and my own. Have a ball, Islam. There is a hell of an upside.

And he discovered that members of that particular tribe are also guilty of favoring their co-ethnics in a host of ways, including entry into elite colleges. But one important essay on this subject does not mark its conclusion. Nor should it.

    Pan-Zionist warmongering embodies a unique and very sophisticated form of political activism. This ethnic cronyism has many victims. It's an ongoing problem of international proportions. It is therefore of immense significance.

    Countless people have died as a consequence of Jewish activism/agitation when it's combined with Jewish war-planning. It marks a dangerous pattern. For a variety of reasons, many of the guilty actors get to fly under the radar as re-branded 'neoconservatives' or liberal 'nation builders'. But their legacy is the same: war.

    We should therefore examine this phenomena and discuss it openly and without interruption. Do you have a problem with that?

    I'm glad that Mr. Unz has examined some of these facts and forces. Others should continue to do so. One great article on this topic however is not nearly enough. For what it's worth, I also reiterate many of the prescient insights made by Kevin MacDonald. All important ideas should be spread far and wide. And done so repeatedly.

    But allow me to repeat my central thesis: America's clash with the non-Jewish East is a political strategy. It's not about 'democracy' or 'freedom'. The crypto-Zionist plot to take out Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon and Iran was hatched in the 90s (if not before) by Jewish operatives, some of whom were nesting in VP Cheney's office (Office of Special Plans).

    This agenda was publicly revealed by General Wesley Clark some years later. Clark spoke about Zio-Washington's plans of destruction in a head-spinning speech he gave during GW Bush's War on Iraq.

    The destruction of Israel's most entrenched foes (listed above) was a clear PNAC (Project for the New American Century) objective, says Clark, long before the events of 911. I believe that Clark's stunning testimony is still available on YouTube. Please watch it. You need more information in your portfolio.

    This conspiracy of annihilation was covered with Israeli fingerprints. And the Zions are still at it. Does this shock you?

    NATOs vile and needless destruction of Libya was the next step. This is a vast criminal enterprise. And the perpetrators are still at work in Washington.

    America's needless 'clash' with the Muslim world is not theologically-driven. That's a ruse. It's an excuse to disrupt and exterminate Israel's regional foes. So cut the 'Muslim' crap.

    Pat Buchanan made similar points in The American Conservative magazine before Bush II launched his tragic and terrible invasion of Iraq in 2003. Buchanan's bold article was entitled "Whose War?

    Since then, Washington has blown over two trillion dollars on the Iraq debacle alone. We've now destabilized an entire region (with the exception of Israel and a few Arab monarchies.) Interesting, no?

    Aggressive, pro-Zionist US military interventions in the Middle East are the source of America's clash with the Muslim world. And the people of Libya, Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Iran have suffered greatly at Zio-Washington's hands.

    America's Mideast wars are all influenced profoundly by Zionists. This central point needs to be hammered home.

    This Israeli factor however goes largely unseen, unacknowledged and un-examined. But it's front and center in American political life. No political candidate dares touch it. Yet you seem comfortable with this fact. How come?

    Joe Sobran observed that all American politicians must be totally aware of Jewish power in America "but never refer to it." It's a force and taboo is like no other.

    Though I've been studying and writing about organized Jewish political malfeasance for decades, more work is needed. Why? The opposing side dominates Western media. This is a recipe for continued disaster. The Zions seem even to have captured your political imagination. Strange, that.

    Not being American and sometimes suspecting that Australian politicians get duchessed in DC – as they used to be in London – I watch US politics with interest but without the emotion you must have invested in the subject. From UR and following up I have come to see that the Israel lobby is obviously very active but that it doesn’t represent most American Jews.

    While I am inclined to think that Israeli preferences have had too much say in US Middle East policy and that the US might do better for Americans by washing its hands of the ME I would want to consider what US policy may be designed to forestall in the way of preventing Russia or China or anyone else becoming powerful in the ME.

    I think I share with most blog commenters a lack of insight into the more complex scenarios which US (in particular) theorists and planners may have envisaged and assessed for ME policy. While it is obvious that at least one Israeli school of thought, and therefore of some pro-Israeli Americans, would favour Balkanisation. But how much splitting up? On what basis? Why has the US been so reluctant to have Iraq split into what seems obvious parts, Kurdish, Sunni Arab and Shia? Where do Turkey, Iran and Israel fit into the US calculations? How far has the US just preferred the known to the uncertain chances of change?

    How far has the inevitability of the US getting involved if Israel’s survival is seriously threatened been a factor? What scenarios have been assessesd and what probabilities assigned to them? (Obvioously Israel looks at a 15 per cent chance of Iran having a nuclear weapon in 12 years time differently from an Obama administration assessment of the risk).

    Some of the scenarios would have to emphasise who would step into any (partial) vacuum left by US absence and whether it mattered. On a short term limited view I see Russia protecting the Assad regime in the west of Syria well into the future as something that suits Putin and Russia’s prestige – just as the US has to be concerned for its standing in Eastern Europe and more generally if it doesn’t uphold the Ukrainian government in Kyiv against a Russian backed insurgency in the east. But what are the longer term consequences of US complacency about Assad surviving with Russian support? And so on?

    My understanding is that in BigLaw, even with white hires there is some flexibility in the event of a bar failure. AA notwithstanding those hires are usually top of the class and therefore a bar failure would be perceived as a fluke or an excusable choke. They usually don't perform many or any tasks which technically require a law license in the first years anyway.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they'd offer special tutoring to AA hires to ensure bar passage. It's that important if they're in a legal market where the lack of minority attorneys would be perceived negatively.

    That said, if you find a reasonably bright, pleasant, and apolitical black attorney they're in high demand even if they're not on par with their white peers. I imagine this was Mr. Obama's life strategy and it catapulted him to the biggest job in the world without a shred of demonstrated competence.

    A retired investment banker and private equity entrepreneur in New York who said a couple of years ago that he wished he could support the Republicans but was in fact supporting Obama told me of a conversation he had with Professor Laurence Tribe of the Harvard Law School. Tribe said he had been present during the discussions at the Harvard Law Review leading to Obama being chosen to be president of the Review and that Obama stood out as clearly the most impressive person present.

    There is one gate keeping function that corporations and law firms can use to keep AA admits out of their offices even if they have graduated from a top 14 school. They have to pass the bar in the state they are working in. They can make the offer contingent on passing the bar or have them on staff but they have a time limit on passing the bar. The rates for blacks to pass the bar on the first try is pretty poor compared to whites. My guess is that most big firms don't give whites a second chance. I wonder if they give blacks more than one try.

    The engineer buddy I used to work with said even at UCLA about 85% of the whites there passed the first time with the blacks being far lower.

    Rehmat- You make several important points. This is why our media's role in this needless 'clash of civilizations' is so decisive and so insidious.

    Indeed, unlike the treatment accorded 'Christians' (from Mexico) or 'Jews' (from Russia), our news media continuously depicts refugees from Libya and Syria and Iraq and Sudan only as 'Muslims'. This one-dimensional moniker implies that their religious background is all-important but that their race/ethnicity, their national origin, their language, their extra-religious customs and values, the way they look, their IQ, and their genetic profiles are unimportant. This is nonsense.

    Moreover, many 'Muslims' are not fundamentalist. Some in fact are only nominally religious. And some of these Mideast refugees are Christian. But virtually all these refugees--'Muslim' and otherwise--are victims of Zio-American foreign policies. Why not examine that salient fact?

    Indeed, the malefactors responsible for these lethal conflicts should be in prison.

    Instead, they're riding around in limos, signing books, running for re-election, plotting their next regime change, and appearing on TV.

    Sure, Islam is a real barrier to assimilation in the West. But so is Judaism. I don't see anyone in public life complaining about the rising Chabad movement, for instance. Do you? Plus, there's the enormous pull that Israel has on virtually all of the world's Jews. Are we to believe that their 'passionate attachment' to Israel does not pose perils for the Christian West? Ha!

    So what's with these manipulative double-standards? Whose interests do they serve?

    After all, even though virtually all the quasi-criminal 'Russian Oligarchs' were Jewish, our news media strenuously depicts them only as 'Russian'. Do you think this journalistic policy happened by accident?

    So why the double standard for 'Muslims'?

    Why?

    In part, it's to get Israel off the hook.

    The understandable dread that much of Europe is feeling over this wave of Third World refugees provides a lot of opportunity for highly-placed Zionists to further demonize Israel's (Muslim) foes and to create a false equivalence between Israel and the West. This is a great PR opportunity for Zionists.

    This narrative helps explain why our Zionized news media examines the human rights disaster in greater Israel as being between 'Israelis' and 'Palestinians', when in fact it's the familiar (and never-ending) conflict between Jews and non-Jews--only now the neighborhood is different.

    Jewish 'exceptionalism' simply rubs the world the wrong way. It's the familiar story of anti-Jewish blowback. Jews de-ligitimize this political expression by terminology. Either it's 'anti-Semitism' or 'Islamo-fascism' or 'terrorism'. These words indirectly tell you who the good guys are.

    So the anti-Muslim backlash that's now building in the West is partially a scripted clash that will be used to 1) shore up Israel's reputation (or at least garner sympathy for Israel) due to the inevitable anger that whites will feel over the (unnecessary) loss of their cultures, and 2) soften up the West for more lethal actions against the Arab/Persian worlds.

    After all, hostilities can be ramped-up simply by throwing together very different peoples. Irritation. Discord. Chaos. Needless to say, Israel will not be accepting any of these Mideast refugees. That's become our responsibility.

    But these wars, disruptions and migrations are a direct consequence of pro-Zionist policies that have been injected and cultivated in Washington and the West.

    N.B. Just the other day Mr. Rehmat made a claim that when Columbus first reached the New World there were several magnificent Mosques in Cuba. So, he’s either an anti-Islamic troll posing as a Muslim, or an ill-educated fool and fanatic. YMMV.

    Theres a big problem here. Namely the more black alumni these schools spit out, the more they'll have a caucus and body politic power to deny the rollback of AA/diversity programmes. I suspect once these people get into the corporate world, their lack of expertise and skill becomes very apparent, but it also suits corporates to have AA hires to show "diversity". The whole thing is a pyramid scheme designed to keep deserving whites, asians and others out. The argument needs to be made that people should progress on merit and not feelings. We dont have quotas for NBA or NFL teams, why should private corporations shareholders have to provide employment for African studies students?

    I was walking around McKinsey's office in London the other day and noticed a black guy working there. Immediately I knew he probably had a lower IQ than most of the people around him, and probably me. But of course he has that job and I don't.

    The problem is you cant skiv in a football or basketball team, but you can skiv in a corporation in most roles.

    When diversity comes crashing down I'm going to throw a party.

    When AA hires prove that they can’t be productive in the stock in trade of the business or professional association that hired them, they can get shoehorned into “minority recruiting,” “event planning,” “VP of diversity,” “community liaison,” “head of pro bono practice group,” etc.

    AA isn’t just necessarily bad for students – those who benefit and those who are displaced alike – but is corrupting to the institution itself. There was a scandal involving a Philadelphia area lawschool wherein the admissions office was reporting false (augmented) LSAT and GPA data for incoming students to the accrediting authority. One of those insiders scandalized and dismissed was the Dean assigned the responsibility for diversity and inclusiveness. Higher hard scores would boost U.S. News rankings. It’s fairly apparent that they were pursuing diversity at the expense of the quality of the incoming classes and simply lied to prevent the inevitable result from negatively affecting the ranking.

    In my own Law School experience black students were offered special treatment by, inter alia but especially the black professors. What was rumored was anything from special and inexhaustible office hours through special tutoring in which the exam material would be “tipped” (and, of course, if the relevant material is reinforced enough by the professor it could be possible to “game” the blind exam system with a repeated recitation of a pattern of words). N.B. Exams were usually three to four hours a piece but cover only a limited scope of material such that knowing what would be on the exam before preparing would be an extreme advantage to the student. The other gambit was the offering of silly advocacy classes (“Women and the Law”) which were easy As and Bs, while serious students would take courses like “Federal Taxation” or “Corporations.”

    Scalia is a Christian supremacist Catholic conservative and no friend of liberal or secular democracy. Delving into his history is like swimming in a fish-tank of neo-cons in criminal association; not least his close and enduring Federalist Society ties placing him in the company of such stellar figures as Reagan era 'faith initiative' engineer Ed Meese, Bush Jr's renditions queen Condoleezza Rice and torture lawyer John Yoo.

    Scalia is also not so bright as to grasp his own contradictions. A firm believer in 'original intent', in the same moment Scalia dismisses legislative history. If he'd embraced the intent of the founders (one could question this) which is none other than to embrace legislative history at its source and inception, how does he so easily dismiss legislative history that follows? Simple answer; Scalia is a hypocrite who prefers his own rank ideology and interpretations.

    I notice the author is a recent 'prestigious' law school grad. The continuing education that is called experience may temper his green ego to something closer to wisdom and keen insights overcoming certain prejudices but judging by the temperament of this article, I doubt it.

    Meanwhile, those with law educations might appreciate (or not) this satire:


    With eyes mere slits, Chief Justice John Roberts proposed Stare Decisis had passed the Federalist Society rite of initiation and be awarded membership. Stare, feeling his ingratiation with the fascists would further his career opportunities, and therefore smugly pleased, sat for his official photo on a tall stool wearing the borrowed Federalist Society member George W Bush’s dunce cap, which was actually a modified Klu Klux Klan headdress, presented by a Grand Wizard.

    With Stare’s middle finger shoved up his nose as though digging deep for a booger, the preferred pose of society members for photos, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito pulled from beneath their robes Thompson Sub-Machine guns...

    Exactly what distinctions should I make between the Wahabist-financed Saudi Sunnis that drove planes into the WTC and the Persian Shiites that daily threaten to incinerate the United States in a nuclear lake of fire? Hmmm, how to make distinctions between those and the various flavors of Syrians and Iraqi Sunnis and Shiites that want to install a caliphate here and are hard at work installing it in Europe? How about the Shia networks in Michigan where the fathers murder the daughters over "honor" right here in the States? Where, Wizz, do I draw distinctions? Everywhere I turn, the extremists of each particular group are blowing us up and breaking things and the moderates are zip-lip and the Mosques are the common thread through all of it.

    Let's talk countries, since you demand I make distinctions, shall we? Shall I make distinctions between the Saudis who behead their "enemies" by the dozens, who horsewhip their women? Or the Iranians who stone their women and homosexuals to death? What distinctions do I draw between the Sunnis of ISIS/ISIL who behead their enemies on the beaches of Syria, Libya, not to mention any westerner that happens to be caught in their web? They're more progressive than Iran, however, they throw their homosexuals off the roof of tall buildings, however. You want distinctions? There. Distinctions.

    I personally don't give a tinker's damn for the "distinctions". The root of it is Allah and Muhammad, the strategy is the Koran, the financial networks and logistics chain is via the Mosque. And I want it torn down. That's it. That's all I have to say on the matter. I know we won't do what the WW2 generation did, the West is too soft and there's your distinction in Christians of today. 70 years back, Christian men would have made Islam-in-general and at-large a religion and culture practiced only in Hell. Christian men of today? They are led around by the nose by women these Christian "men". Christian men are soft, corrupt, ruled by feminist women that have filled the Western Armies and Navies with women, homosexuals and trans-genders and the West will be easy pickings for the flavor-of-0f-the-month Islamic/Muslim ideology bent on domination. Islam should stop bombing. Stop the attacks, risk nothing that would arouse Christian ire. Just sneak up and take over. It will be so EASY. It IS so easy, the West is being handed over on a silver platter.

    Muslims will pick it all off, region by region. The only impediment to a caliphate in the United States inside of even 30-50 years, at least within regions, is there may be resistance from Hispanic men, another culture stronger than the soft, perverted cowardly feminist society that "rules" the U.S. today. The Dundus, the Blacks, they'll be easy, the Hispanic men make short work of Dindus everywhere they settle and I can easily imagine Muslims dispensing with American Black Dindu everywhere Muslims settle. Islam will get no work out of American Dindu, they need to be camped with their women, isolated and armed, they'll take care of each other as they do in the big cities Islam will want to occupy one day. All groups of course, will need a few high-IQ white men around to keep the water and electricity and farms running. Islam needs to be smart about whom to elevate and whom to dispense with as they take over.

    I'm sorry the West is so weak, but there you have it. At least as Islam takes over, the soft, gay, perverted Left and the hateful feminist influence will be smashed. They made the takeover of the West by Islam possible. It will be good to see the Western-Feminist Left destroyed. I will take much satisfaction in their destruction. The Left are not Christians, they are not Muslim, they are not Jews, they are only a perverted, soft, corrupt form of humanity. As long as I and my own are safe (and I will see to that), I'll be happy to see the fall of the Liberal Left. They certainly do not care for me and my own. Have a ball, Islam. There is a hell of an upside.

  • There is one gate keeping function that corporations and law firms can use to keep AA admits out of their offices even if they have graduated from a top 14 school. They have to pass the bar in the state they are working in. They can make the offer contingent on passing the bar or have them on staff but they have a time limit on passing the bar. The rates for blacks to pass the bar on the first try is pretty poor compared to whites. My guess is that most big firms don’t give whites a second chance. I wonder if they give blacks more than one try.

    The engineer buddy I used to work with said even at UCLA about 85% of the whites there passed the first time with the blacks being far lower.

    My understanding is that in BigLaw, even with white hires there is some flexibility in the event of a bar failure. AA notwithstanding those hires are usually top of the class and therefore a bar failure would be perceived as a fluke or an excusable choke. They usually don't perform many or any tasks which technically require a law license in the first years anyway.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they'd offer special tutoring to AA hires to ensure bar passage. It's that important if they're in a legal market where the lack of minority attorneys would be perceived negatively.

    That said, if you find a reasonably bright, pleasant, and apolitical black attorney they're in high demand even if they're not on par with their white peers. I imagine this was Mr. Obama's life strategy and it catapulted him to the biggest job in the world without a shred of demonstrated competence.

    Saud is certainly pouring gas on the fire with Wahabism, but I don’t think it’s the problem. Christian billionaires could get together and put as much money as they wanted into a Christian analogue to Wahabism, and you still wouldn’t see many (western) Christians ready to strap on suicide vests or join Christian Talibans or caliphates, if any. The Muslim world is fertile ground for Wahabism and the like, which is probably down to some combination of Islamic Nurture and Islamic populations’ Nature (not for nothing these people came up with and took to Islam in the first place, btw).

    Rehmat- You make several important points. This is why our media's role in this needless 'clash of civilizations' is so decisive and so insidious.

    Indeed, unlike the treatment accorded 'Christians' (from Mexico) or 'Jews' (from Russia), our news media continuously depicts refugees from Libya and Syria and Iraq and Sudan only as 'Muslims'. This one-dimensional moniker implies that their religious background is all-important but that their race/ethnicity, their national origin, their language, their extra-religious customs and values, the way they look, their IQ, and their genetic profiles are unimportant. This is nonsense.

    Moreover, many 'Muslims' are not fundamentalist. Some in fact are only nominally religious. And some of these Mideast refugees are Christian. But virtually all these refugees--'Muslim' and otherwise--are victims of Zio-American foreign policies. Why not examine that salient fact?

    Indeed, the malefactors responsible for these lethal conflicts should be in prison.

    Instead, they're riding around in limos, signing books, running for re-election, plotting their next regime change, and appearing on TV.

    Sure, Islam is a real barrier to assimilation in the West. But so is Judaism. I don't see anyone in public life complaining about the rising Chabad movement, for instance. Do you? Plus, there's the enormous pull that Israel has on virtually all of the world's Jews. Are we to believe that their 'passionate attachment' to Israel does not pose perils for the Christian West? Ha!

    So what's with these manipulative double-standards? Whose interests do they serve?

    After all, even though virtually all the quasi-criminal 'Russian Oligarchs' were Jewish, our news media strenuously depicts them only as 'Russian'. Do you think this journalistic policy happened by accident?

    So why the double standard for 'Muslims'?

    Why?

    In part, it's to get Israel off the hook.

    The understandable dread that much of Europe is feeling over this wave of Third World refugees provides a lot of opportunity for highly-placed Zionists to further demonize Israel's (Muslim) foes and to create a false equivalence between Israel and the West. This is a great PR opportunity for Zionists.

    This narrative helps explain why our Zionized news media examines the human rights disaster in greater Israel as being between 'Israelis' and 'Palestinians', when in fact it's the familiar (and never-ending) conflict between Jews and non-Jews--only now the neighborhood is different.

    Jewish 'exceptionalism' simply rubs the world the wrong way. It's the familiar story of anti-Jewish blowback. Jews de-ligitimize this political expression by terminology. Either it's 'anti-Semitism' or 'Islamo-fascism' or 'terrorism'. These words indirectly tell you who the good guys are.

    So the anti-Muslim backlash that's now building in the West is partially a scripted clash that will be used to 1) shore up Israel's reputation (or at least garner sympathy for Israel) due to the inevitable anger that whites will feel over the (unnecessary) loss of their cultures, and 2) soften up the West for more lethal actions against the Arab/Persian worlds.

    After all, hostilities can be ramped-up simply by throwing together very different peoples. Irritation. Discord. Chaos. Needless to say, Israel will not be accepting any of these Mideast refugees. That's become our responsibility.

    But these wars, disruptions and migrations are a direct consequence of pro-Zionist policies that have been injected and cultivated in Washington and the West.

    I am sorry you have given encouragement to Rehmat when he has just spouted volumes of unmitigated factual rubbish.

    The entire 'scandal' over Scalia's sensible remarks is pure political cant. Unfortunately, reality-denial has now become a requirement for public service. Even our Courts are feeling the heat. 'Equal treatment under law' is constantly being tweaked and revised. This is a very unhealthy trend.

    Significantly, 'outraged' liberal writers like Liptak, Rothwell and Savage (above) are probably very comfortable with the idea of diverging mental capacities among/between whites (and by implication, Jews). Of course they are.

    After all, that's why there's Harvard, Princeton and Yale!

    And that's why Jews are found at elite universities in such great numbers. These are the children of Einstein!

    Indeed, differences in human intelligence have always been taken for granted--even among siblings with the same two parents.

    In fact, many 'gifted' students have siblings with average--and sometimes below-average--IQs. This should not be shocking. Like inborn athletic potential, intellectual capacities are bestowed by nature in unequal portions. True?

    So why shouldn't genetically-isolated populations (races) mirror this 'diversity'?

    Variations in human intelligence occur. Among families, tribes, ethnic communities, and races. Even breeds of dogs exhibit differences in innate mental capacity. This is biology talking. The rest is politicized nonsense.

    But science has become a VERY BIG OBSTACLE for the 'racial egalitarian enforcers' who manage America's political discourse. Genes and intelligence? Different ethnic backgrounds.... Race?

    That's white supremacism!

    And so, the Social Justice Warriors must pretend (and declare) that the descendants of African slaves must have precisely the same proportion of intellectually-gifted children as Ashkanazi Jews, Boston Presbyterians, or Hong Kong Chinese. Call in the bean-counters!

    The offspring of NBA players need equal representation at MIT.

    But this ruse is even more absurd that it looks. Even the bean-counters have to pull their punches.

    After all, we cannot (and must never) count (apply) 'quotas' to Jews. Heavens no!

    Whites must bow (as well as Asians) but Jews are exempt from the machinations of affirmative action. Even the US government is prohibited from counting them.

    On the other hand, sacrificing a little white 'privilege' is an appropriate and necessary step for achieving social justice.

    But why should mandating an equal and proportional sacrifice from America's most successful group be beyond the pale?

    Why?

    It's anti-Semitic!

    Just watch this movie or read that book if you don't believe me.

    So it's whites (or Asians) who must pay for 'unequal outcomes' in education. No 'social remedy' or demographic slight-of-hand can be implemented if it victimizes you-know-who. That's when 'affirmative action' slips down the ugly slope into 'quotas'.

    Therefore, Jews are exempt from numerically-derived (and politically-correct) policies of academic exclusion. This is a very kosher remedy for academic inequality.

    When can we examine these policies and discuss their disparate impact?

    When?

    Not now. Maybe never.

    Wizard- I'm 100% white and US-born. Are my comments 'stupid' or unoriginal? I don't believe so. For what it's worth, I've been studying this subject for 30 years.

    Yes, Mr. Unz deduced that Jews have been largely exempted from the pitfalls of affirmative action. And he discovered that members of that particular tribe are also guilty of favoring their co-ethnics in a host of ways, including entry into elite colleges. But one important essay on this subject does not mark its conclusion. Nor should it.

    Pan-Zionist warmongering embodies a unique and very sophisticated form of political activism. This ethnic cronyism has many victims. It's an ongoing problem of international proportions. It is therefore of immense significance.

    Countless people have died as a consequence of Jewish activism/agitation when it's combined with Jewish war-planning. It marks a dangerous pattern. For a variety of reasons, many of the guilty actors get to fly under the radar as re-branded 'neoconservatives' or liberal 'nation builders'. But their legacy is the same: war.

    We should therefore examine this phenomena and discuss it openly and without interruption. Do you have a problem with that?

    I'm glad that Mr. Unz has examined some of these facts and forces. Others should continue to do so. One great article on this topic however is not nearly enough. For what it's worth, I also reiterate many of the prescient insights made by Kevin MacDonald. All important ideas should be spread far and wide. And done so repeatedly.

    But allow me to repeat my central thesis: America's clash with the non-Jewish East is a political strategy. It's not about 'democracy' or 'freedom'. The crypto-Zionist plot to take out Iraq, Libya, Syria, Lebanon and Iran was hatched in the 90s (if not before) by Jewish operatives, some of whom were nesting in VP Cheney's office (Office of Special Plans).

    This agenda was publicly revealed by General Wesley Clark some years later. Clark spoke about Zio-Washington's plans of destruction in a head-spinning speech he gave during GW Bush's War on Iraq.

    The destruction of Israel's most entrenched foes (listed above) was a clear PNAC (Project for the New American Century) objective, says Clark, long before the events of 911. I believe that Clark's stunning testimony is still available on YouTube. Please watch it. You need more information in your portfolio.

    This conspiracy of annihilation was covered with Israeli fingerprints. And the Zions are still at it. Does this shock you?

    NATOs vile and needless destruction of Libya was the next step. This is a vast criminal enterprise. And the perpetrators are still at work in Washington.

    America's needless 'clash' with the Muslim world is not theologically-driven. That's a ruse. It's an excuse to disrupt and exterminate Israel's regional foes. So cut the 'Muslim' crap.

    Pat Buchanan made similar points in The American Conservative magazine before Bush II launched his tragic and terrible invasion of Iraq in 2003. Buchanan's bold article was entitled "Whose War?

    Since then, Washington has blown over two trillion dollars on the Iraq debacle alone. We've now destabilized an entire region (with the exception of Israel and a few Arab monarchies.) Interesting, no?

    Aggressive, pro-Zionist US military interventions in the Middle East are the source of America's clash with the Muslim world. And the people of Libya, Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Iran have suffered greatly at Zio-Washington's hands.

    America's Mideast wars are all influenced profoundly by Zionists. This central point needs to be hammered home.

    This Israeli factor however goes largely unseen, unacknowledged and un-examined. But it's front and center in American political life. No political candidate dares touch it. Yet you seem comfortable with this fact. How come?

    Joe Sobran observed that all American politicians must be totally aware of Jewish power in America "but never refer to it." It's a force and taboo is like no other.

    Though I've been studying and writing about organized Jewish political malfeasance for decades, more work is needed. Why? The opposing side dominates Western media. This is a recipe for continued disaster. The Zions seem even to have captured your political imagination. Strange, that.

We don’t have colleges, the majority of these programs could print a degree and hand it over and send a kid on his/her way, at least they wouldn’t have been screwed up by the college experience.

    There is not ONE degree that should be handed out that doesn’t come with extensive education in mathematics, science, a knowledge of literature, government, history. A foreign language should be mandatory. These kids aren’t educated, they’re MORONS. Then, to accommodate it all, the greed of the colleges and universities, they rigged the entire process for employers to demand a degree and from birth, the scam-setting inducement, “you must have a degree” to join the ranks of the employed. Loans, incestuous relationships between banks, lenders and the colleges. All the way through is the Federal government with mandates and programming and political correctness. And it’s ruining the kids and our society. But, the colleges and universities DO have multi-billion dollar endowments, that IS important, and why not? The cost goes up 10X inflation every year.

I suspect once these people get into the corporate world, their lack of expertise and skill becomes very apparent, but it also suits corporates to have AA hires to show “diversity”. The whole thing is a pyramid scheme designed to keep deserving whites, asians and others out. The argument needs to be made that people should progress on merit and not feelings. We dont have quotas for NBA or NFL teams, why should private corporations shareholders have to provide employment for African studies students?

    AA isn't just necessarily bad for students - those who benefit and those who are displaced alike - but is corrupting to the institution itself. There was a scandal involving a Philadelphia area lawschool wherein the admissions office was reporting false (augmented) LSAT and GPA data for incoming students to the accrediting authority. One of those insiders scandalized and dismissed was the Dean assigned the responsibility for diversity and inclusiveness. Higher hard scores would boost U.S. News rankings. It's fairly apparent that they were pursuing diversity at the expense of the quality of the incoming classes and simply lied to prevent the inevitable result from negatively affecting the ranking.

    In my own Law School experience black students were offered special treatment by, inter alia but especially the black professors. What was rumored was anything from special and inexhaustible office hours through special tutoring in which the exam material would be "tipped" (and, of course, if the relevant material is reinforced enough by the professor it could be possible to "game" the blind exam system with a repeated recitation of a pattern of words). N.B. Exams were usually three to four hours a piece but cover only a limited scope of material such that knowing what would be on the exam before preparing would be an extreme advantage to the student. The other gambit was the offering of silly advocacy classes ("Women and the Law") which were easy As and Bs, while serious students would take courses like "Federal Taxation" or "Corporations."

    "Black surgeon? Black lawyer? Black teacher? Heck, even a black mechanic, who on Earth wants to trust any of them (to be) competent?"

    Indeed.

    True story: about 15 years ago, while working as an intern in the Dept of Clinical Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health, I suffered a broken tooth, so I went to the nearest provider on my included healthcare plan to have it capped. Turned out to be a black woman.

    What followed was the most horrifically painful experience of my life. A couple of hours of searing, excruciating pain, with the tears running down my face, while she kept insisting that all was well, it was nearly over, and there was no need for any more pain killers.

    I assumed that she knew what she was doing - that this was just what you had to go through to get a broken tooth capped.

    So when, ten years later, living in rural Missouri, I again broke a tooth, I put off fixing it for weeks, in fear of what it would be like.

    Finally bowed to the inevitable and went to the local dentist - a middle-aged white guy who couldn't seem to stop telling you about the latest news he'd gleaned from Rush Limbaugh.

    Result? Totally painless procedure, out in half an hour.

    To this day, I wonder about what that lady in Bethesda put me through: was it mere incompetence? Or active malice?

    Regardless, the moral of the story is: never, ever, put yourself in the hands of a black professional, no matter how "qualified," if you've got the option of some nobody white grunt instead.

    Fortunately Australia doesn’t have the same problem though I think some would prefer the very small number of Aboriginal doctors to provide their services to Aborigines. However I remember with pleasure and satisfaction a 15 year period during which I took a succession of various secondhand cars that my spirit of economy recommended to me to one central city service garage for service and occasional repairs. It was very competently run by a charming black Trinidadian and his attractive lighter coloured Trinidadian wife. He and his white mechanics all seemed competent and conscientious. I got a job with him for a Chinese refugee who had worked at Mercedes-Benz in Germany.

    It's interesting to note that Donald Trump has become a "shield" for all the American politicians, religious leaders and the so-called "intellectuals" to vomit their own hatred of Muslims and Islam. I'm at loss to find out which US president had not hated Muslims, even when there were no Muslims in United States? Since WWI every American president is known for licking feet of country's tiny Jewish minority, so much so, that some rabbis started calling United States, The Promised Jewish Land.

    No Western government has the balls to investigate Israeli leaders for their war crimes against Palestinians, Iraqis, Syrians, Iranians, Lebanese, Chilean, or Argentinean. The US, UK, France, Australia, New Zealand and Germany have all passed laws which provide immunity to Israeli Zionist leaders.

    In September 2015, thousands of British citizens including MPs, labor union leaders and anti-war activists held a protest rally in front of David Cameron’s 10 Downing Street residence against Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyah’s two-day visit to London. The pro-Israel Jewish and anti-Muslim Christian groups staged a counter demonstration at the same time. Police had to use force to stop Zionist hooligans attacking anti-Netanyahu protesters carrying Hamas and Hizbullah flags, and Free Palestine banners. According to the Jewish Chronicle police arrested one anti-Netanyahu and five pro-Netanyahu protesters.

    Before boarding plane to begin his visit to London, Netanyahu warned western leaders about the Islamic danger to the western civilization by repeating his Talmudic bigotry against Muslims and Islam by saying that Islamic teachings are the root causes of bloodshed in the region.....

    This narrative helps explain why our Zionized news media examines the human rights disaster in greater Israel as being between ‘Israelis’ and ‘Palestinians’, when in fact it’s the familiar (and never-ending) conflict between Jews and non-Jews–only now the neighborhood is different.

    Jewish ‘exceptionalism’ simply rubs the world the wrong way. It’s the familiar story of anti-Jewish blowback. Jews de-ligitimize this political expression by terminology. Either it’s ‘anti-Semitism’ or ‘Islamo-fascism’ or ‘terrorism’. These words indirectly tell you who the good guys are.

    So the anti-Muslim backlash that’s now building in the West is partially a scripted clash that will be used to 1) shore up Israel’s reputation (or at least garner sympathy for Israel) due to the inevitable anger that whites will feel over the (unnecessary) loss of their cultures, and 2) soften up the West for more lethal actions against the Arab/Persian worlds.

    After all, hostilities can be ramped-up simply by throwing together very different peoples. Irritation. Discord. Chaos. Needless to say, Israel will not be accepting any of these Mideast refugees. That’s become our responsibility.

    But these wars, disruptions and migrations are a direct consequence of pro-Zionist policies that have been injected and cultivated in Washington and the West.

    I am sorry you have given encouragement to Rehmat when he has just spouted volumes of unmitigated factual rubbish.

    BTW I think anyone wanting to be nuanced about Islam would be emphasising that Wahabism is THE problem even if it is a difficult subject because the Saudi royal family in its last few decades of power will continue to be the main source of finance for Wahabism's madrassas and its vicious influence wherever there are poor Sunni Muslims.

    Pardon the pun – but everything is not “black and white.”

    The grand purpose of a university is to advance society – to educate the young, and to further human knowledge and understanding of each other and our universe. Universities are supported by society and the community. Thus they have a community purpose. Universities have a group purpose and a purpose to advance the individual.

    Is it a value to the community to have blacks in these universities? Is an integrated society a value to our American community. The answers are Yes and Yes.

    There are negatives for the individuals, both black and white – but in the long run the interests of society must prevail – in the long run it is a plus for America.

    With all that said, affirmative action should not go no forever.

That’s not to say that statistically there are no variations in the measured intelligence of large groups from one race or another. Rather, the fact is that statistics fail when applied to sample groups of one. Scalia would be on firmer ground –and individuals of all races would also- if we viewed an individual as such without the superfluous baggage of race.

    Rehmat- You make several important points. This is why our media's role in this needless 'clash of civilizations' is so decisive and so insidious.

    Indeed, unlike the treatment accorded 'Christians' (from Mexico) or 'Jews' (from Russia), our news media continuously depicts refugees from Libya and Syria and Iraq and Sudan only as 'Muslims'. This one-dimensional moniker implies that their religious background is all-important but that their race/ethnicity, their national origin, their language, their extra-religious customs and values, the way they look, their IQ, and their genetic profiles are unimportant. This is nonsense.

    Moreover, many 'Muslims' are not fundamentalist. Some in fact are only nominally religious. And some of these Mideast refugees are Christian. But virtually all these refugees--'Muslim' and otherwise--are victims of Zio-American foreign policies. Why not examine that salient fact?

    Indeed, the malefactors responsible for these lethal conflicts should be in prison.

    Instead, they're riding around in limos, signing books, running for re-election, plotting their next regime change, and appearing on TV.

    Sure, Islam is a real barrier to assimilation in the West. But so is Judaism. I don't see anyone in public life complaining about the rising Chabad movement, for instance. Do you? Plus, there's the enormous pull that Israel has on virtually all of the world's Jews. Are we to believe that their 'passionate attachment' to Israel does not pose perils for the Christian West? Ha!

    So what's with these manipulative double-standards? Whose interests do they serve?

    After all, even though virtually all the quasi-criminal 'Russian Oligarchs' were Jewish, our news media strenuously depicts them only as 'Russian'. Do you think this journalistic policy happened by accident?

    So why the double standard for 'Muslims'?

    Why?

    In part, it's to get Israel off the hook.

    The understandable dread that much of Europe is feeling over this wave of Third World refugees provides a lot of opportunity for highly-placed Zionists to further demonize Israel's (Muslim) foes and to create a false equivalence between Israel and the West. This is a great PR opportunity for Zionists.

    Black surgeon? Black lawyer? Black teacher? Heck, even a black mechanic, who on Earth wants to trust any of them are competent?

    Affirmative Action is a stain on EVERY single black in the middle or higher class now.

    By raising the actual cost of every black (brown, LGBT, etc.) employee (because each one carries a risk of lawsuit-publicity-settlement extortion), I can't help wondering just how high is the dead-weight cost to businesses in America today.

    “Black surgeon? Black lawyer? Black teacher? Heck, even a black mechanic, who on Earth wants to trust any of them (to be) competent?”

    Indeed.

    True story: about 15 years ago, while working as an intern in the Dept of Clinical Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health, I suffered a broken tooth, so I went to the nearest provider on my included healthcare plan to have it capped. Turned out to be a black woman.

    What followed was the most horrifically painful experience of my life. A couple of hours of searing, excruciating pain, with the tears running down my face, while she kept insisting that all was well, it was nearly over, and there was no need for any more pain killers.

    I assumed that she knew what she was doing – that this was just what you had to go through to get a broken tooth capped.

    So when, ten years later, living in rural Missouri, I again broke a tooth, I put off fixing it for weeks, in fear of what it would be like.

    Finally bowed to the inevitable and went to the local dentist – a middle-aged white guy who couldn’t seem to stop telling you about the latest news he’d gleaned from Rush Limbaugh.

    Result? Totally painless procedure, out in half an hour.

    To this day, I wonder about what that lady in Bethesda put me through: was it mere incompetence? Or active malice?

    Regardless, the moral of the story is: never, ever, put yourself in the hands of a black professional, no matter how “qualified,” if you’ve got the option of some nobody white grunt instead.

  • Scalia is a Christian supremacist Catholic conservative and no friend of liberal or secular democracy. Delving into his history is like swimming in a fish-tank of neo-cons in criminal association; not least his close and enduring Federalist Society ties placing him in the company of such stellar figures as Reagan era ‘faith initiative’ engineer Ed Meese, Bush Jr’s renditions queen Condoleezza Rice and torture lawyer John Yoo.

    Scalia is also not so bright as to grasp his own contradictions. A firm believer in ‘original intent’, in the same moment Scalia dismisses legislative history. If he’d embraced the intent of the founders (one could question this) which is none other than to embrace legislative history at its source and inception, how does he so easily dismiss legislative history that follows? Simple answer; Scalia is a hypocrite who prefers his own rank ideology and interpretations.

    I notice the author is a recent ‘prestigious’ law school grad. The continuing education that is called experience may temper his green ego to something closer to wisdom and keen insights overcoming certain prejudices but judging by the temperament of this article, I doubt it.

    Meanwhile, those with law educations might appreciate (or not) this satire:

    With eyes mere slits, Chief Justice John Roberts proposed Stare Decisis had passed the Federalist Society rite of initiation and be awarded membership. Stare, feeling his ingratiation with the fascists would further his career opportunities, and therefore smugly pleased, sat for his official photo on a tall stool wearing the borrowed Federalist Society member George W Bush’s dunce cap, which was actually a modified Klu Klux Klan headdress, presented by a Grand Wizard.

    With Stare’s middle finger shoved up his nose as though digging deep for a booger, the preferred pose of society members for photos, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito pulled from beneath their robes Thompson Sub-Machine guns…

    That's because Scalia is a textualist, and legislative histories are a nebulous and indefinite source for interpreting the product of the legislative process - if 22 Senators voted for a bill because they believed it would do x, and 23 Senators voted for a bill because they thought it would do y, must we interpret the bill to mean y? What if 23 is insufficient to enact a law to do y? The only static and fixed artifact we have of the legislative process is the text itself.

  • In short, the benefit of going to an elite school is not that you get a superior education, but rather that you can say you got into an elite school.

    Exactly. Mismatch theory is not plausible unless what you mean by mismatch theory is that blacks would *learn* more at lesser schools. That version is plausible. But, in terms of job market outcomes, blacks very likely benefit by going to elite schools.

    The Mismatch Theory is popular amongst Conservatism Inc. intellectuals because it argues that we should oppose Affirmative Action because it hurts blacks—not because it hurts whites and Asians.

    This is not a one-off. This has been the consistent pattern of neoconservative “thought” pretty much from the beginning. They say “don’t argue for right wing policies using right wing arguments and assumptions.” Instead, use liberal arguments and assumptions to arrive at right wing policies. They claim that what will happen is that liberals will be forced to adopt right wing policies because the liberals’ own assumptions and arguments dictate them. Obviously, no such thing happens. What happens instead is that right wingers silently acquiesce to left wing assumptions and arguments. They are a true fifth column, the neoconservatives.

    Thanks for the great article, Sir. Well written and agree with almost everything you said. (Harry Reid, the election thief, is a disgrace and simply utters what he thinks his liberal masters want to hear).

    The mismatch theory applies not just to admission, but even the pressure to graduate or get into college that is being pushed on blacks.

    Maybe some blacks do not want to graduate. Maybe they are not that keen on going to college, let alone top colleges where they will do poorly. So why entice them with affirmative action towards a path they don’t wish to walk?

    School standards have been watered down, and math and science classes diluted to allow blacks to graduate at the same rate as whites and the whole society pays the price.

    Affirmative action is racist, not only because it discriminates against whites, but because it eventually hurts blacks by conning them into thinking they are capable in areas that they are not and leading them into fields they are not cut out for.

    A well known economist/investment advisor mentioned in his Christmas newsletter that an associate of his, a wealthy hedge fund manager, had funded an academy in Somalia for boys and that we were encouraged to donate. He pointed out that this schools graduates had been 'accepted'' into elite schools in America and the UK. That they would be the leadership of tomorrow's Somalia.

    I about threw up upon reading this. While anyone is free to spend their own money as they see fit, the idea that it is, somehow, morally preferable to assist a poor African by sending him to school at an elite Western school and deny the American student a spot at his own universities is appalling. It is also naive to believe the Somalian, having had a taste of Yale or Cambridge, is going to be in any hurry to head back to Somalia and 'build' his own nation. Experience tells us he is more likely to overstay his visa and do whatever it takes to never return home.

    He has a cosmopolitan outlook. I think that he is short sighted. The concept of a nation state exists for a reason, to invite the world and give outsiders every advantage while the white liberals are not reproducing at replacement level is absurd. The most vicious wars are religious wars because they are over identity.
