From MSN, an account of the mounting pressure to tear down memorials to the notorious Confederate generals Christopher Columbus and Ulysses S. Grant:

A Whole New World: Columbus Statue Could Be Considered for Removal

Daniella Silva
46 mins ago

As the violence in Charlottesville has reignited a national debate over monuments dedicated to Confederate-era and other controversial figures, New York City is conducting its own review over “symbols of hate” and possibly taking aim at Christopher Columbus.

New York City Mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a 90-day review by a commission of all “symbols of hate” on city property in the wake of violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that was protesting the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

The move has opened questions about a variety of monuments in the city, including a 76-foot statue of Christopher Columbus in the heart of Manhattan’s Columbus Circle.

City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said on Monday she thought Columbus’ history and treatment of indigenous people in Caribbean “has to be looked at.”

“I will wait for the commission, as I said Christopher Columbus is a controversial figure to many of us particularly in the Caribbean and I think that that has to be looked at, when you have to look at history we have to look at it thoroughly and clearly,” she said.

“I know some people may take offense to that but for many of us that come from the Caribbean islands, we see him as a controversial figure,” she added.

Melissa Mark-Viverito is ethnically a Conquistador-American.

… [Mayor] De Blasio was also asked Tuesday if the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant in the city should also be considered for removal, over claims of anti-Semitism for an order he gave during the American Civil War expelling Jewish people from the area of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Grant later apologized for the order.

The mayor said he was not “familiar with that history” but, “we don’t tolerate anti-Semitism in New York City.”

“We have to look at each one of these cases. We’ll have a commission that does that,” he added.

While Grant’s memorial is in a city park, it is also a national monument and thus it was unclear what authority the city would have over changes to it.

Screenshot 2017-08-23 15.02.25Also there is that colossal statue of Grant in front of the U.S. Capitol.

It’s gotta go too.

All of these monuments of Confederate generals have to go.

Even if, technically speaking, they weren’t Confederates.

The point is, they were in America doing big things before Melissa Mark-Viverito’s ancestors were in America.

So they give her bad feelz.

And don’t forget to chop down the 267-foot-tall General Grant sequoia tree in King’s Canyon National Park.

It’s unofficial name is “The Nation’s Christmas Tree,” which sounds anti-Semitic, just like Grant.

Think of the children!

Better yet, nuke it from orbit.

It’s the only way to be sure.

By the way, if you have any portraits of Ulysses S. Grant in your wallet, radiating Evil Spirit Rays, I’d be happy to take them off your hands for proper disposal as part of my iSteve August fundraiser.

Also, Benjamin Franklin wrote an anti-immigration screed that inspired Charles Darwin, so having his picture in your pocket is bad juju too. And don’t get me started on Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton, and Jackson.

Here are seven ways for you to contribute to iSteve:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Commenter Lot adds:

For paypal, you can currently avoid all fees on both sides of the transfer by (1) selecting the “friends and family” feature (2) using your bank account rather than credit card.

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer

P.O Box 4142

Valley Village, CA 91617-0142

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here. (Paypal and credit cards accepted, including recurring “subscription” donations.) Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know. Don’t forget to click my name.

Fourth: You can use Bitcoin:

I’m using Coinbase as a sort of Paypal for Bitcoins.

Message to the SPLC intern reading this: The IRS has issued instructions regarding Bitcoins. I’m having Coinbase immediately turn all Bitcoins I receive into U.S. dollars and deposit them in my bank account. At the end of the year, Coinbase will send me a 1099 form for filing my taxes.

So, SPLC intern, tell Heidi she’s out of luck again. And ask her how long until you get paid, what with Morris having piled up a $303 million endowment.

Coinbase payments are not tax deductible.

Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Fifth: if you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay. Just tell WF SurePay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Sixth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Seventh: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address(that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

  7. Nice Eric Burdon imitation. It’s amazing that this band wasn’t massacred during the Obama years because of its insulting Muslim name. But maybe not – – – I had never heard of this band until its existence was revealed today, for the very first time on iSteve Radio, which encircles the globe, thanks to shortwave and the ionosphere!

    Rockers have historically been naive people when it comes to politics. Eric Burdon once described himself as being “left of Red,” meaning hardline Communist, but then ran off to America in order to escape the Labour Party’s onerous tax scheme for all UK residents, Red or otherwise. Elvis Costello endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008 after he became a US citizen. Playing music and reading a newspaper are two distinctly different skill sets.

    Here, for what it’s worth, and it may not be very much, is Costello doing his Eric Burdon imitation :

    U2 also seems to be oddly conservative when it's their money on the line. The Edge may be the only rock star ever to use the phrase "tax efficient."

    “Of course we’re trying to be tax-efficient. Who doesn’t want to be tax-efficient?”

    The band technically moved their business operations to Holland to save on taxes.

    What a bunch of d-bags.

    The Animals did it much better. "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" Check out the wiki for it. Was written for Nina Simone. Elvis Costello is trying to capture some of her version, but is too cool for school and flunks out. The visuals are dumb. Lame.

There’ll be a malodorous treehugging hippy couple 100 ft. up on a branch pounding in spikes against a crowd of angry screaming Antifa “warriors” at the base beating on the poor thing with baseball bats, along with groups of Chinese tourists who only want to get their pictures taken making peace signs in front of this tree (cause, otherwise apparently the folks back home won’t believe they went to California) and writing home on We Chat that this new Cultural Revolution is not their Dad’s Cultural Revolution.

  11. 200 year old monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore destroyed by antifa with annoying up-talk voice on Monday. I always get confused how filling the US with more and more people of weaker and weaker historical ties to the land is supposed to help Native Americans given the dystopia on many reservations get practically no attention as it is, let alone in an America where nobody has any ancestral guilt and Native Americans make up an even smaller minority.

    From Art News:

    The Museum of the City of New York issued a statement today calling for the removal of a statue of Dr. J. Marion Sims in East Harlem. The statement comes after neighborhood residents, protestors, and officials have made similar demands for the work’s removal, citing Sims’s experiments on enslaved black women without the use of anesthesia.

    The statue is currently on view near 103rd Street and 5th Avenue, in close proximity to the Museum of the City of New York. First dedicated in 1894, the work commemorates Sims, who created a surgery that has prevented deaths resulting from complications during childbirth and is sometimes referred to as the founder of modern gynecology. Some have been calling for the removal of the work for years.

    With New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration currently reviewing the city’s monuments in an attempt to remove any “symbols of hate,” the Sims statue’s removal is possible. Statues devoted to Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee in the Bronx and Brooklyn, respectively, have already been taken away from their original sites.

  21. I imagine if the sizable Irish population in Britain rose up to remove all the statues of their ancestors oppressors (Ie pretty much every English monarch or general for the last 800 years) that it would, of course, be greeted with understanding in the media and not eye-rolling. After all, it is about respecting ‘people’ in the abstract, not particular kinds of people…

    It’s funny because almost all the Columbus monuments were erected as ethnic totems of what was then an underprivileged minority. Exactly the same mentality (See also Oktoberfest and St Patrick’s Day in their American incarnations that involve highly visible parades as ethnic turf marking and displays of strength.) except instead of destroying monuments, they built them.

    How long before the highly ethnic elements of the New York St Patrick’s Day parade come under fire? Ie the marching of ethnic Irish associations and general lack of PoCs?

    Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. In 1983, he legally changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. In 2002, he legally changed it again, to Bill de Blasio, his mother's family name, because he wanted to embrace his Italian heritage (and his father had divorced years earlier).

    His paternal uncle, Donald George Wilhelm, Jr., worked for the Central Intelligence Agency in Iran. He was also the ghostwriter of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's memoir.

    Wikipedia Footnote: Democracy Now, July 24, 2017. JUAN GONZÁLEZ: I’m just wondering if, in the documents—we’ve got about 30 seconds—you came across the name of Donald Wilhelm at all, who was a CIA guy who went to Iran, after the overthrow of Mosaddegh, and who was actually the mayor’s—Mayor Bill de Blasio’s uncle?

  25. Since Columbus’ statue will be removed can John Cabot’s be put back?: he is the one who really discovered the continent – not some Caribbean island — and claimed it for God, England, and France; a fact which really upset the papacy: the papacy, thinking it actually owned the world gave the New World to Spain, except Brazil which was given to Portugal. This is the root cause behind the current papacy’s insistence that we let wave after wave of Roman Catholic South American/Mexican peasants invade the United States: a slow but sure way to reclaim the American continent.

    By all means, someone should erect a statue of Cabot, with a short, factual bio - one that is difficult to vandalize.

    About 50% of Spanish-speakers who enter the USA each year, legally and illegally, are Catholic - and this number has been dropping steadily for decades. So if this is the Vatican's strategy for making the USA Catholic, it is pretty dumb.

    Well, America is named for the Italian Amerigo Vespucci, whose voyages of "discovery" served the evil colonial interests of white Spanish and Portuguese crowns. He was also a cartographer which, like mathematics, is a field that has historically been used by the powerful to further humiliate and oppress brown and black people.

    (There doesn't seem to be any evidence that he personally butchered the hapless inhabitants of the lands he discovered, but his advances certainly paved the way for the half millennium of genocide and pillage that would follow and of course continues unabated to this day.)

    Moreover, people from the United States now arrogantly and outrageously refer to themselves as "Americans," which in and of itself expatriates the majority of people living in the majority of the Americas land mass. This moniker itself is a tool of vicious oppression and marginalization in the way that it has been co-opted by the U.S.A.

    We need to erase this ugly word from history. Taking a cue from Mr. Unz, perhaps a name paying homage to the aboriginal inhabitants of the continent, such as Quatholquetec or Ch'olan-Tzeltalan. Or better yet, what kind of names did the Asians who came across the Bering Strait have? I suppose they had no written language.

On the one hand it would tend to provide evidence of anti-semitism. But, I suppose on the other hand General Grant is such a heroic figure that it might backfire.

  28. The Democrat Party will not be able to control the anti-White animosity currently let loose in the United States. Obama and the Democrats have previously ginned up anti-White animosity as an electoral tool to motivate the Democrat Party base to vote.

    The trick for the Democrats was to inflame and energize their anti-white voter base while trying to wedge White women voters away from the Republican Party. President Trump got 53 percent of the White lady voters and in the 2018 mid-term elections I suspect White women voters will be repelled by the anti-White message of the statue and monument destroyers in the Democrat Party.

    President Trump will most likely ramp up the safety and security political message to win the votes of White women for the Republican Party. The anti-White hatred that is currently fueling the Democrat Party will destroy them. White women voters will see the Democrat Party as the political force that tears down the history and memories of the American nation. White women voters will not support a political party that destroys and does not build, and the Democrat Party no longer offers a constructive message.

    White women voters will do their part to stop the anti-White mob that controls the Democrat Party. White women voters want to feel that their past, present and future is built on cultural solidity. The anti-white Democrat Party is now under the control of a demonic mob that wants to destroy the past, present and future.

    These jacka**es are actually proposing to take down the Nelson column in Trafalgar Square. What’s next, the Bayeaux Tapestry? After all the Normans were originally from the Vikings, and the Vikings were slavers. How about Hadrian’s wall? Surely that pale stale male relic from Roman slavers needs to go. Especially since everyone now knows the truth that the Romans were black.

    This is occurring because of decades of liberals destroying the idea of whites as a People. A people shattered have no connection to their ancestors and don’t stand up for them the way they should. Whites 100 years ago would not have put up with this BS. Just like Blacks nor Asians would tolerate this garbage. They lose their connection, they also stop caring for the white next generations and think nothing of destroying their future, leaving them without these statues in memory of their past, leaving them deep in debt, under an Orwelllian Stalinist government.

    Nice Eric Burdon imitation. It's amazing that this band wasn't massacred during the Obama years because of its insulting Muslim name. But maybe not - - - I had never heard of this band until its existence was revealed today, for the very first time on iSteve Radio, which encircles the globe, thanks to shortwave and the ionosphere!

    Rockers have historically been naive people when it comes to politics. Eric Burdon once described himself as being "left of Red," meaning hardline Communist, but then ran off to America in order to escape the Labour Party's onerous tax scheme for all UK residents, Red or otherwise. Elvis Costello endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008 after he became a US citizen. Playing music and reading a newspaper are two distinctly different skill sets.

    Here, for what it's worth, and it may not be very much, is Costello doing his Eric Burdon imitation :

    P. S. I'm so upset about what's going on in the world that I posted this in the wrong thread. My apologies to one & all.

    U2 also seems to be oddly conservative when it’s their money on the line. The Edge may be the only rock star ever to use the phrase “tax efficient.”

    “Of course we’re trying to be tax-efficient. Who doesn’t want to be tax-efficient?”

    The band technically moved their business operations to Holland to save on taxes.

  31. Ulysses S. Grant banned Jews from his military sector in his march down the Mississippi River. They were moving out in front of Union troops and buying discounted cotton from the Confederates and selling it to cotton brokers in New York, generating the hard currency that the Confederacy needed to buy British weapons to fight the Union. Grant also once owned a slave. However, anticipating the later example of General Robert E. Lee, Grant freed his slave. Regardless, Grant was an anti-Semite and both were slave owners, right?

    We know Abraham Lincon was a racist (or at least a race realist). He is also done for; it is only a question of time until the Taliban destroy his statuaries. Grant is close behind him as another white historical figure ready to be flushed down the memory hole.

    FDR, Eisenhower, and Jimmy Carter are also on the list. I am well read and “woke” on these issues. They are white and all have critical vulnerabilities when it comes to the intentional or unintentional impact of their decisions on the world’s “coloreds”. I’m preparing the narratives as you read this. The Antifa thugs only need the “go” signal.

    From The New York Times April 9, 1976:

    PHILADELPHIA, April 8—Jimmy Carter apologized today for using the phrase “ethnic purity” in his pledge two days ago to defend the stability of established neighborhoods. But he stuck to his original basic position, saying he would not “arbitrarily use Federal force” to change a neighborhood's ethnic character.

    His apology notwithstanding, the “ethnic purity” reference and two others he had used in the same context—”black intrusion” and “alien groups” —constituted a haunting refrain throughout the Georgia Democrat's first full day of, campaigning for the Pennsylvania primary on April 21

    * *

    Mr. Young [then Congressman later Mayor of Atlanta Andrew Young] was torn today between defending Mr. Carter and denouncing his language. “This doesn't mean to me he's a racist,” he said. “It means he made a terrible blunder that he's got to recover from.”

    “I just think it's an awful phrase. I don't think he understood how loaded it is with Hitlerian connotations...."

     

    Really, the Carter Library must go. And the statue of Jimmah at the Georgia state capitol. Not because Jimmah was a foolish sanctimonious failure as a president, but because they are haunted by Hitler's ghost.

    Grant's (quickly countermanded, barely put into effect) General Order #1 has the distinction of being the only significant state-sanctioned anti-Jewish act in the entire history of the United States. It didn't keep Jews from voting for him in 1868, though.

    You mean "Wilhelm's town". "Wilhelm" is DeBlasio's given name. Not clear why he dropped it unless it sounded too redolent of Prussianism--which goes over like a rotten piece of lox in The Big Bagel.

    Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. In 1983, he legally changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. In 2002, he legally changed it again, to Bill de Blasio, his mother’s family name, because he wanted to embrace his Italian heritage (and his father had divorced years earlier).

    His paternal uncle, Donald George Wilhelm, Jr., worked for the Central Intelligence Agency in Iran. He was also the ghostwriter of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi’s memoir.

    Wikipedia Footnote: Democracy Now, July 24, 2017. JUAN GONZÁLEZ: I’m just wondering if, in the documents—we’ve got about 30 seconds—you came across the name of Donald Wilhelm at all, who was a CIA guy who went to Iran, after the overthrow of Mosaddegh, and who was actually the mayor’s—Mayor Bill de Blasio’s uncle?

    These jacka**es are actually proposing to take down the Nelson column in Trafalgar Square. What's next, the Bayeaux Tapestry? After all the Normans were originally from the Vikings, and the Vikings were slavers. How about Hadrian's wall? Surely that pale stale male relic from Roman slavers needs to go. Especially since everyone now knows the truth that the Romans were black.

    This is occurring because of decades of liberals destroying the idea of whites as a People. A people shattered have no connection to their ancestors and don't stand up for them the way they should. Whites 100 years ago would not have put up with this BS. Just like Blacks nor Asians would tolerate this garbage. They lose their connection, they also stop caring for the white next generations and think nothing of destroying their future, leaving them without these statues in memory of their past, leaving them deep in debt, under an Orwelllian Stalinist government.

    Yep. That’s why I do my best to teach my kids about their German, Irish, Scottish and Norwegian history. Even plan on taking them on a heritage tour.

    Can I gently nudge/encourage you to think about taking them to the church of your choice, if you don't already? Christianity is as much a part of that heritage that as dress and political history.

    We're dead spiritually as atheists or even agnostics. Whites in particular seem to need more. I really think that the loss of belief in something beyond ourselves is what killing us in the physical sense. It's the AIDs of our minds.

    Plus if your kids want rebellion, show up in church, and believe in orthodox Christian doctrine, in a joyful, "God wants you to be happy" manner. It pisses off the atheist globalists to no end. They groan about the routine, but they get used to it.


    Btw, I also tell my kids that they need to keep their mouth shut in class and around other kids.

    Since Columbus' statue will be removed can John Cabot's be put back?: he is the one who really discovered the continent - not some Caribbean island -- and claimed it for God, England, and France; a fact which really upset the papacy: the papacy, thinking it actually owned the world gave the New World to Spain, except Brazil which was given to Portugal. This is the root cause behind the current papacy's insistence that we let wave after wave of Roman Catholic South American/Mexican peasants invade the United States: a slow but sure way to reclaim the American continent.

    By all means, someone should erect a statue of Cabot, with a short, factual bio – one that is difficult to vandalize.

    About 50% of Spanish-speakers who enter the USA each year, legally and illegally, are Catholic – and this number has been dropping steadily for decades. So if this is the Vatican’s strategy for making the USA Catholic, it is pretty dumb.

    That’s the answer. Via Executive Order, Trump should nationalize every Confederate/Civil War era/Founding Fathers statue in the US. This will automatically prevent them from removal and ruin by state/local govs. Make them all national monuments and out of the states’ jurisdiction. Then make it clear: “The statues stay right where they are, and if you touch even a piece of stone on those statues or allow them to be ruined by thugs, then your state/cities won’t get that grant money this fiscal yr.”

    - Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who led the brutal murder of thousands, many women and children (someone in Miami is going to have to make a run to Sherwin Williams…).

    (Obviously, one could add to this list ad infinitem….)

    What’s that? Every single person, and especially those of historical significance and fame subject to scrutiny, is flawed and imperfect?

    ...over claims of anti-Semitism for an order he gave during the American Civil War expelling Jewish people from the area of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Grant later apologized for the order.

    The mayor said he was not “familiar with that history” but, “we don’t tolerate anti-Semitism in New York City.”
     

    It doesn't surprise me he has never heard of General Order 11. I haven't met many who have. I've always wondered why it does not get more attention. On the one hand it would tend to provide evidence of anti-semitism. But, I suppose on the other hand General Grant is such a heroic figure that it might backfire. It might cause some to wonder if such a man had his reasons. Maybe it's for the best we don't discuss.

  57. I live in NY and have for almost 30 years. It’s hard to express the opressiveness of the “blue state” regions to to people of conservative leanings that has occurred in my lifetime.

    The level of political participation (voting) in a place like Manhattan has been anemic at best for as long as I can remember. We are a one-party city and the idea of democracy is more one of virtue-signaling than true belief. It’s become a mere “ceremony” almost equal to the faux elections in a totalitarian state. Think Sadam Hussein or Mubarak.

    But the insanity of even considering removing a statue of Christopher Columbus defies belief. Most residents of the City have only a vague idea who this Viverito character even is. They should.

    People constantly talk about the “threat” of Trump, and how “dangerous” he is, without ever providing a modicum of evidence in support for their fears. But when politicians like De Blasio and this vile woman discuss retconning someone of the stature of CC, there’s not a peep of protest. Truly Orwellian, Huxleyan, or fill-in-the-blank dystopian philosopher.

    SJWism is the finest recruiting tool White Nationalism ever had. On the one hand this stuff irks me but on the other I realize that anti-whitism is a repelling force that repels even liberalish whites away and unites us all by backing us into a corner.

    AGREED and the right response to this is to encourage them make suggestions they are ahistorical idiots you can even fake reasons but better to just find reasons to get them to tear down the stuff that will most enrage the whites. and lets not forget jewish privilege

    Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. In 1983, he legally changed his name to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. In 2002, he legally changed it again, to Bill de Blasio, his mother's family name, because he wanted to embrace his Italian heritage (and his father had divorced years earlier).

    His paternal uncle, Donald George Wilhelm, Jr., worked for the Central Intelligence Agency in Iran. He was also the ghostwriter of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's memoir.

    Wikipedia Footnote: Democracy Now, July 24, 2017. JUAN GONZÁLEZ: I’m just wondering if, in the documents—we’ve got about 30 seconds—you came across the name of Donald Wilhelm at all, who was a CIA guy who went to Iran, after the overthrow of Mosaddegh, and who was actually the mayor’s—Mayor Bill de Blasio’s uncle? ERVAND ABRAHAMIAN: Yeah, he actually co-ghostwrote the shah’s memoirs.

    Melissa Mark Viverito is also a trans-ethnic politician.

    She was born plain old Melissa Mark and had that name for most of her life, after her father, Anthony (not Antonio) Mark, an ophthalmologist from whom she inherited about $6 million. She added her mother’s surname of Viverito after she decided to go into politics.

    I live in NY and have for almost 30 years. It's hard to express the opressiveness of the "blue state" regions to to people of conservative leanings that has occurred in my lifetime.

    The level of political participation (voting) in a place like Manhattan has been anemic at best for as long as I can remember. We are a one-party city and the idea of democracy is more one of virtue-signaling than true belief. It's become a mere "ceremony" almost equal to the faux elections in a totalitarian state. Think Sadam Hussein or Mubarak.

    But the insanity of even considering removing a statue of Christopher Columbus defies belief. Most residents of the City have only a vague idea who this Viverito character even is. They should.

    People constantly talk about the "threat" of Trump, and how "dangerous" he is, without ever providing a modicum of evidence in support for their fears. But when politicians like De Blasio and this vile woman discuss retconning someone of the stature of CC, there's not a peep of protest. Truly Orwellian, Huxleyan, or fill-in-the-blank dystopian philosopher.

    Only about 1/6 of eligible voters in NYC voted in the last election. They could all have been city employees for all we know.

    [Y]ou have to look at history we have to look at it thoroughly and clearly
     
    I couldn't agree more. We must examine the history of:

    - Tuskaloosa, who treachorously ambushed and killed explorers after promising them assistance to gain their confidence – ¡¿Donde esta la ξενία?! – (a city filled with many black lives that matter needs renaming; and, say, I thought public libraries are notoriously awoken...?);

    - Sequin, renowned for torture and for kidnapping young girls;

    - Mandela, whose Umkhonto killed at least seven thousand people using terrorist tactics (surely mobs are converging on Washington with mattocks and sledges as I type...);

    - Jean-Jacques Dessalines, who led the brutal murder of thousands, many women and children (someone in Miami is going to have to make a run to Sherwin Williams...).

    (Obviously, one could add to this list ad infinitem....)

    What's that? Every single person, and especially those of historical significance and fame subject to scrutiny, is flawed and imperfect? Those who achieve salutary things for some, leading to respect and memorialisation thereafter, are often bound to simultaneously do harmful things to others because much in this world is a zero-sum game? I dunno...sounds like racist hoodoo and sophistry to me....

    Yep. That's why I do my best to teach my kids about their German, Irish, Scottish and Norwegian history. Even plan on taking them on a heritage tour.

    I can tell already that they have an issue with some of things that they hear in school. If you have any admiration for your ancestors - and you're white - you'll see what's going on.

    Btw, I also tell my kids that they need to keep their mouth shut in class and around other kids. In part, I tell them this because it's true. They can get in a lot of trouble. But I also tell them this because it makes them feel like the rebels, and kids love being the rebel.

    Whites that care about their past and future are the new underground.

    Yep. That’s why I do my best to teach my kids about their German, Irish, Scottish and Norwegian history. Even plan on taking them on a heritage tour.

    Can I gently nudge/encourage you to think about taking them to the church of your choice, if you don’t already? Christianity is as much a part of that heritage that as dress and political history.

    We’re dead spiritually as atheists or even agnostics. Whites in particular seem to need more. I really think that the loss of belief in something beyond ourselves is what killing us in the physical sense. It’s the AIDs of our minds.

    Plus if your kids want rebellion, show up in church, and believe in orthodox Christian doctrine, in a joyful, “God wants you to be happy” manner. It pisses off the atheist globalists to no end. They groan about the routine, but they get used to it.

    Btw, I also tell my kids that they need to keep their mouth shut in class and around other kids.

    Yeah, I find myself doing that too. I warn them about the ideas that will get them in trouble so they know to expect. It’s a weird moment.

    New York City has a statue to a man who had been at least as much an antisemite as General Grant. I am sure they are going to topple this statue any minute now.

    https://www.gosee.de/images/preview/f2/500x-malcolm-portrait.jpg

    From Art News:

    The Museum of the City of New York issued a statement today calling for the removal of a statue of Dr. J. Marion Sims in East Harlem. The statement comes after neighborhood residents, protestors, and officials have made similar demands for the work’s removal, citing Sims’s experiments on enslaved black women without the use of anesthesia.

    The statue is currently on view near 103rd Street and 5th Avenue, in close proximity to the Museum of the City of New York. First dedicated in 1894, the work commemorates Sims, who created a surgery that has prevented deaths resulting from complications during childbirth and is sometimes referred to as the founder of modern gynecology. Some have been calling for the removal of the work for years.

    With New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration currently reviewing the city’s monuments in an attempt to remove any “symbols of hate,” the Sims statue’s removal is possible. Statues devoted to Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee in the Bronx and Brooklyn, respectively, have already been taken away from their original sites.

    Jawohl Kaiser Bill!

    I read a biography of Dr Sims. He was indeed a great man. The women were both White and black. They were first and foremost patients with obygny problems. He did great great service to his patients. He created a way to cure a common problem in those days. After a few childbirths things get stretched and the bladder leaks continuously. It's troublesome, smelly and embarrassing.
    He came up with a surgical procedure for that. A much worse problem is sometimes the uterus detaches and falls down. He developed the procedure to cure that as well. He did a lot of his research on black women because there were a lot of blacks in the area. If he had lived in Europe or Vermont all his patients/ research subjects would have been White.

    Every one of those women were patients first. It wasn't some * Dr Mengle doing weirdo experiments on healthy people.

    And Dr Sims gave them opium and alcohol when performing the surgeries.
    He did a lot of research with black subjects because it's easier to distinguish the pink parts on brown skinned women.

    Pasteur, + Chamberlin ,Lister and Sims have saved the lives of hundreds of millions of women. All White European men.

    * Mengel alleged experiments
    + Chamberlin invented forceps.

    Ulysses S. Grant banned Jews from his military sector in his march down the Mississippi River. They were moving out in front of Union troops and buying discounted cotton from the Confederates and selling it to cotton brokers in New York, generating the hard currency that the Confederacy needed to buy British weapons to fight the Union. Grant also once owned a slave. However, anticipating the later example of General Robert E. Lee, Grant freed his slave. Regardless, Grant was an anti-Semite and both were slave owners, right?

    We know Abraham Lincon was a racist (or at least a race realist). He is also done for; it is only a question of time until the Taliban destroy his statuaries. Grant is close behind him as another white historical figure ready to be flushed down the memory hole.

    FDR, Eisenhower, and Jimmy Carter are also on the list. I am well read and "woke" on these issues. They are white and all have critical vulnerabilities when it comes to the intentional or unintentional impact of their decisions on the world's "coloreds". I'm preparing the narratives as you read this. The Antifa thugs only need the "go" signal.

    However, rest assured that Martin Luther King is safe. (It is comforting to know that someone is safe.) King was a saint without stain. Those rumors about him cavorting with prostitutes and being sympathetic with Communism are false.

    Grant’s (quickly countermanded, barely put into effect) General Order #1 has the distinction of being the only significant state-sanctioned anti-Jewish act in the entire history of the United States. It didn’t keep Jews from voting for him in 1868, though.

    Since Columbus' statue will be removed can John Cabot's be put back?: he is the one who really discovered the continent - not some Caribbean island -- and claimed it for God, England, and France; a fact which really upset the papacy: the papacy, thinking it actually owned the world gave the New World to Spain, except Brazil which was given to Portugal. This is the root cause behind the current papacy's insistence that we let wave after wave of Roman Catholic South American/Mexican peasants invade the United States: a slow but sure way to reclaim the American continent.

    Well, America is named for the Italian Amerigo Vespucci, whose voyages of “discovery” served the evil colonial interests of white Spanish and Portuguese crowns. He was also a cartographer which, like mathematics, is a field that has historically been used by the powerful to further humiliate and oppress brown and black people.

    (There doesn’t seem to be any evidence that he personally butchered the hapless inhabitants of the lands he discovered, but his advances certainly paved the way for the half millennium of genocide and pillage that would follow and of course continues unabated to this day.)

    Moreover, people from the United States now arrogantly and outrageously refer to themselves as “Americans,” which in and of itself expatriates the majority of people living in the majority of the Americas land mass. This moniker itself is a tool of vicious oppression and marginalization in the way that it has been co-opted by the U.S.A.

    We need to erase this ugly word from history. Taking a cue from Mr. Unz, perhaps a name paying homage to the aboriginal inhabitants of the continent, such as Quatholquetec or Ch’olan-Tzeltalan. Or better yet, what kind of names did the Asians who came across the Bering Strait have? I suppose they had no written language.

    Vespucci trivia, his cousin Simonetta was the model for Botticelli's Birth of Venus. He went to a school run by an uncle. Another student was a wealthy French Count. They became lifelong friends and the count subsidized the map making. In the Count's territory was a monastery that had the biggest printing operation in Europe. Some expert German map makers were brought in and the maps of America were made.

    Interesting that the voyages of Columbus, Hudson, Cabot and others were a response to the final conquest of Byzantinium by the Muslims and cutting off the Silk Road.

    Now the rulers of Europe are bringing in hordes of Muslims to at last complete the conquest the Muslims began 1,500 years ago.

    City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said on Monday she thought Columbus’ history and treatment of indigenous people in Caribbean “has to be looked at.”
     
    Why don't we start with the nation of Columbia? There can be no higher honor given to a man than that of naming a country after him. This dwarfs any statue. Should Columbia change its name, why or why not? Should the US refuse to recognize Columbia if they fail to change their name? If a statue of Columbus is an affront to so many people, then surely an entire country named after him is too.

    Colombia is a country.

    Columbia is a district, a province, and a river (inter alia).

    Never call Colombia Columbia around a Colombian. They hate that shit.

    By all means, someone should erect a statue of Cabot, with a short, factual bio - one that is difficult to vandalize.

    About 50% of Spanish-speakers who enter the USA each year, legally and illegally, are Catholic - and this number has been dropping steadily for decades. So if this is the Vatican's strategy for making the USA Catholic, it is pretty dumb.

    With New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration currently reviewing the city’s monuments in an attempt to remove any “symbols of hate,” the Sims statue’s removal is possible. Statues devoted to Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee in the Bronx and Brooklyn, respectively, have already been taken away from their original sites.
     
    Jawohl Kaiser Bill!

    I read a biography of Dr Sims. He was indeed a great man. The women were both White and black. They were first and foremost patients with obygny problems. He did great great service to his patients. He created a way to cure a common problem in those days. After a few childbirths things get stretched and the bladder leaks continuously. It’s troublesome, smelly and embarrassing.
    He came up with a surgical procedure for that. A much worse problem is sometimes the uterus detaches and falls down. He developed the procedure to cure that as well. He did a lot of his research on black women because there were a lot of blacks in the area. If he had lived in Europe or Vermont all his patients/ research subjects would have been White.

    Every one of those women were patients first. It wasn’t some * Dr Mengle doing weirdo experiments on healthy people.

    And Dr Sims gave them opium and alcohol when performing the surgeries.
    He did a lot of research with black subjects because it’s easier to distinguish the pink parts on brown skinned women.

    Pasteur, + Chamberlin ,Lister and Sims have saved the lives of hundreds of millions of women. All White European men.

    * Mengel alleged experiments
    + Chamberlin invented forceps.

    What happened to changing the name of America to "Turtle Island?" That was big around c. 1980, or at least National Lampoon writers got a lot of mileage out of the idea.

    19th century Chinese labor contractors enticed the proles to immigrate by calling America The Golden Mountain.

    Grant's (quickly countermanded, barely put into effect) General Order #1 has the distinction of being the only significant state-sanctioned anti-Jewish act in the entire history of the United States. It didn't keep Jews from voting for him in 1868, though.

    There were Jews who supported Hitler- the Association of German National Jews and the German Vanguard. In comparison Grant is small potatoes.

    "State-sanctioned" being the key word. And it *is* small potatoes in comparative historical terms- that's part of what's remarkable about it.

  91. “National debate over monuments?”

    Is this “debate” going to be like the one about the Washington Redskins? Where a vanishingly small minority of SJWs whine about a matter that we have all decided against their preferred position?

    Sorry, but the debate is long since over and the SJWs lost. Now it’s time for the states and municipalities to enforce the law, throw the vandals in the slammer for extended stays and bankrupt them and the organizations financing them.

    Here they're calling it Italian American Heritage Day.

    There are a lot of Italian Americans here, so I guess that pleases the maximum number of people.

    I plan to celebrate Italian American Heritage Day the old fashioned way, by eating my beautiful Italian wife’s delicious pasta.

  93. How about removing Grant’s statue because his forces suffered significantly greater losses than the Confederacy throughout the war, in other word, because he was America’s Zhukov? I realize that his tactics won the war, but not the manner taught in military colleges, then or now.

    Nice Eric Burdon imitation. It's amazing that this band wasn't massacred during the Obama years because of its insulting Muslim name. But maybe not - - - I had never heard of this band until its existence was revealed today, for the very first time on iSteve Radio, which encircles the globe, thanks to shortwave and the ionosphere!

    Rockers have historically been naive people when it comes to politics. Eric Burdon once described himself as being "left of Red," meaning hardline Communist, but then ran off to America in order to escape the Labour Party's onerous tax scheme for all UK residents, Red or otherwise. Elvis Costello endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008 after he became a US citizen. Playing music and reading a newspaper are two distinctly different skill sets.

    Here, for what it's worth, and it may not be very much, is Costello doing his Eric Burdon imitation :

    P. S. I'm so upset about what's going on in the world that I posted this in the wrong thread. My apologies to one & all.

    The Animals did it much better. “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” Check out the wiki for it. Was written for Nina Simone. Elvis Costello is trying to capture some of her version, but is too cool for school and flunks out. The visuals are dumb. Lame.

    Sure.

    Ben Franklin was anti-immigration, so send any green Franklin portraits you want exorcised as well.

    As I live in Japan, I could send evil portraits of the dastardly yellow menace, too, but Japan has already Tubman-ized their money with pointless female authoresses.

    However, being Japan, the liberal on their $100 note wore a sword and his hair in a topknot–time-honored class signs.

    The $10 note is actually a little interesting from an HBD perspective…

    Before Commodore Perry, Japan was literally feudal. Fifty years later, there was a Japanese bacteriologist explaining syphilis.

    Before Dias, Africa was literally primitive. Five-hundred years later, crickets.
