A.k.a., The Forehead

The Soviet Union under Stalin created a cult around Pavlik Morozov, a 13 year old child Communist who was endlessly admired for ratting out his own father to the secret police.

Here’s a new NYT opinion essay:

Racists Are Recruiting. Watch Your White Sons.
Parents need to understand how white supremacists prey on teen boys, so they can intervene.

By Joanna Schroeder
Ms. Schroeder is a writer.

Oct. 12, 2019

Raising teenagers can be terrifying. Our squishy little babies become awkward hormonal creatures who question our authority at every turn.

I expected that. What I didn’t predict was that my sons’ adolescence would include being drawn to the kind of online content that right-wing extremists use to recruit so many young men.

The first sign was a seemingly innocuous word, used lightheartedly: “triggered.”

As my 11- and 14-year-old sons and their friends talked and bantered — phones in hand, as always — in the back seat of the car, one of them shouted it in response to a meme, and they all laughed uproariously.

I almost lost control of the car. That’s because I know that word — often used to mock people who are hurt or offended by racism as overly sensitive — is a calling card of the alt-right, which the Anti-Defamation League defines as “a segment of the white supremacist movement consisting of a loose network of racists and anti-Semites who reject mainstream conservatism in favor of politics that embrace implicit or explicit racism, anti-Semitism and white supremacy.” People associated with this group are known for trolling those who disagree with them, and calling critics “triggered” is a favorite tactic.

Hopefully, Ms. Schroeder doesn’t share a last name with her children, so that they will enjoy a little privacy.

In the future, the US might have a mirror image to the Stalinists’ Pavel Mozlik cult. The difference will be that we’ll honor parents, like Ms. Schroeder, who rat out their own sons.

  4. “Triggering” is an expression which comes from psychiatry having to do with the mentally ill. The expression is so promiscuously used by SJWs that it causes the rest of us to think that perhaps they are all mentally ill. Which might not be so far from the truth.

    Most of the left's lingo comes from the traditionally Jewish professions of psychiatry, sociology, social work, and so on. When we recast the facts in the lingo of psychiatry it is easier to slip in an unearned assumption that a particular thought or behavior is to be considered not on its merits but as a symptom of some mental illness.

    When a group of psychoanalysts signed an ad to the effect that 1960 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater was mentally ill, it rebounded against them, since Goldwater was not only very sane but well-connected, a colonel in the air force, and part-Jewish. He moved to the left later in life putting to rout any fears that he may have been crazy. For decades the psychiatric profession avoided attributing mental illness to conservatives they had not actually examined out of respect for the Goldwater precedent, but with Trump the old restraints are being shed and once again we are faced with Jewish psychologists attributing disagreement with their dogmas to mental illness.

    The only cure for it is to conduct a thorough expose of the failure of psychology and related social "sciences" to meet the requirements for genuine scientific status. Psychology, whether 'pop' or festooned with arcane neurological 'findings', is basically a grab-bag of half-baked hunches and 20-20 hindsight, with zero predictive power, which is the acid test of a science. As my old philosophy professor used to say, psychology is "third-rate physiology at best."

    People who can be legitimately triggered would be soldiers with PTSD, or survivors of rape or childhood sexual abuse. One time me and a girl I used to date were watching a movie, which unbeknownst to us had a scene where the main character is raped by her uncle - something that had actually happened to my gf. She started crying hysterically and we obviously did not finish the movie. This is what real “triggering” looks like.

    It's just part of the Marxian dogma of heightening the contradictions, a elemental part of Critical Theory.

    One is not supposed -- in this world view -- to argue for a particular political or ideological position, but just attack the established bourgeois order, so that this 'critique' can break down the cultural sense of the establishment for what is right and wrong.

    Marx was ever the clepto-creative, he never had a original thought in his head (except the labour theory of value, which was rubbish), so he 'adopted' Hegel's idea about Thesis, Antithesis and then Synthesis for his own ideology.

    This latter day Marxist do this now with SpongeBob; what exists (thesis), when critically examined (antithesis), will result (synthesis) in Utopia. Childish, I know, but in the collectivist mindset it all makes sense. Critical Theory is all about attacking what is not Communist.

    Not as wise as I would like. Here's a crazy reader response to one of the more sane comments: "the system was built by and for white men, and in all ways they, in general, are better served by it than the rest of us. Those men you reference need to honestly ask themselves if they would want to be black or brown or female in addition to being non-affluent and unprivileged."

    It's funny that both brown and black men seem to be better served in systems built by white men than in systems built by their own. Black and browns often do better in white men's countries - often by an order of magnitude or more - than in their own. And when they flee their own countries it is usually because of problems caused by their own (e.g., the insanely high rates of violence and corruption in Central America). I would also wager that the wealth gap between whites and blacks/browns is greater in countries where whites are a minority than in countries where whites are in the majority.

    BTW, where’s Dad on this?
     
    From a June 2015 column by Joanna Schroeder titled "My Husband Is A Better 'Mother' Than I Am":

    It surprises people to learn that I'm the tough one in our family and that my tall, broad-shouldered husband is the softie. Society tells us that moms are supposed to be the nurturers—cooking, cleaning and bandaging boo-boos. Dads are supposed to be the breadwinners and the task masters. Remember how they used to say, "Wait until your father gets home!" to scare naughty little kids?

    But those are outdated stereotypes [...]
     


    Personally, I wasn't sure I wanted to have kids until I met my husband. I wondered if I even had that "mom" gene inside me, since the idea of raising kids scared me. But when I saw the way he moved through the world with such a profound goodness and kindness to his nature, I knew he'd be the perfect parenting partner for me—an open-hearted match for my highly analytical nature.

    My first real experience of our differences happened when our first son was born. My husband cried and I didn't. I was tired, and that was my excuse for feeling detached, but the truth is that I didn't immediately connect with that seven pound squealing bundle of baby. He was cute, for sure, but the whole process was confusing and almost too heady for me.
     


    Even as our boys grow older and society seems to insist that we "toughen them up," my husband is still a model of nurturing parenthood. We've chosen to surrounded ourselves with other dads who are nurturers, like my husband's brothers and friends. These guys are models of 21st Century fatherhood, and it's beautiful to watch.

    A fair guess, but wrong in this case. Joanna Schroeder is of entirely White-Protestant origin. All four of her grandparents were Midwest Christians (source: obituaries), of primarily (or entirely) Dutch and German ancestry.

    (FWIW, I don't think Schroeder is often a Jewish surname, in any case.)

    I suspect Joanna Schroeder's politics, and conspicuous-consumption-style shrill activism to include the public condemnation of her own son, are because she feels like an outsider in the outer-tier elite circles in Southern California she travels in (residence: Malibu).


    [The Joanna Schroeder case is] the old story of the upwardly-aspirant-but-somewhat-insecure Middle America type (Midwesterner, in this case) who shows up in the Big City (Southern California) and makes it.

    Joanna Schroeder did well, in many ways, winding up resident in ultra-exclusive Malibu (often a target of Steve Sailer’s irony), with children by a Hollywood producer. She herself has fallen into a rather fluffy, minor role in the US cultural apparatus.

    It all must weigh on her.

    It's so obvious that it isn't even true. Not everything bad in the world is Jewish. Jews are a small minority in America. They form a disproportionate % of leftist idiots but even if they are over-represented by a factor of ten, they can still only account for maybe 20% or 25% of leftist idiots. That leaves 80% (like Schroeder) who aren't.

  23. The Soviet Union under Stalin created a cult around Pavlik Morozov, a 13 year old child Communist who was endlessly admired for ratting out his own father to the secret police.

    This is not true. Pavlik did not “rat his father to the secret police” (what secret police in a little village in the middle of taiga?) What Pavlik did do was to testify against his father in court. Pavlik’s father left his mother a few years after his birth, so Pavlik understandably did not consider the man to be his real father.

    As a retribution for his testimony, Pavlik was murdered (along with his little brother.) This was the real reason for his cult in the USSR. He was a martyr for the cause.

    Incidentally, that Wiki article is terrible. It’s full of outright falsehoods. For example, it claims that Pavlik’s father was executed. In reality, he returned home after three years and then moved elsewhere.

  24. Add “triggered” to the list (along with “fake news”) of the many words and phrases that the Left intended to roll out to a glorious, non-ironic lexicon debut, only to find it immediately appropriated by the memist Right. The “I’m rubber, you’re glue” rhyme that we learned in the schoolyard truly applies to the SJW’s. Everything they come up with seems to turned around immediately. (It does, seem, however, that there are a shockingly large number of “civilians” that are completely unaware of all this. People you could say “triggered” in front of and who would have no idea what you were talking about).

    I have heard the future of discourse belongs to the right because internet memes seem inherently Right-leaning (by their mocking nature).

    The Soviets also considered disagreement with mainstream Communist positions as mental illness and would sometime hospitalize and forcibly medicate dissidents. Politics and medicine should not mix but Trump hatred has meant that all bets are off.
  26. We’ll honor parents, like Ms. Schroeder, who rat out their own white sons.

    A typically brilliant insight. It’s coming, if it’s not already here. I wonder where it’ll stop? Since it’s been shown that babies at six months of age are already alt-right, or something like that. White babies, anyway.

    Meanwhile, in Britain:


    Why aren’t we living longer?

    For the best part of two centuries people’s life expectancy has been improving at a pretty rapid and consistent rate.

    But then the advances stopped, especially in the UK and the US. What on earth could the cause be?

    Japan, for example, which already has longer life expectancy, has seen bigger increases in recent years than the UK.

    In fact, out of the wealthier nations the ONS looked at, there was only one country which had a significantly worse record than the UK – the US – although plenty have seen improvements slow down.

    Complex range of factors

    ONS ageing expert Edward Morgan said there was likely to be a “complex” range of factors behind the trend – and he would like more work done to investigate it.

In any case, I suspect that this is not a fully functional family unit, nor one that is likely to raise sons without psychological damage.

  29. The irony, of course, is that any “White supremacism” that occurs on social media will already be logged and recorded without any parental intervention.  Of course, Ms. Schroeder pointedly refuses to understand that teenage White boys are already being demonized for everything that’s wrong with the world despite having had no part in making it (the SJW version of Original Sin) and that reaction against this is not merely normal but healthy.  This attitude of hers has to be creating a toxic household environment.  I support the right of Ms. Schroeder’s son to sue her for emotional abuse once he attains the age of majority.

  30. The re-emergence of white nationalism must drive the Woke ideologues nuts because it has happened in Hayekian fashion: spontaneously, organically, across a white spectrum of the white population and without central planning or institutional support to bring this about. Indeed, white nationalists have had to defy our elites’ central planning based on the elites’ stupid and damaging utopianism about equality, diversity, inclusion, open borders and the refusal to judge people who need judging good and hard.

    It says something encouraging about the sovereignty and integrity of man’s mind in the face of adversity that so many young white men have resisted all the propaganda, indoctrination, shaming, gaslighting, bullying and even threats of bloodshed intended to force them into conformity with an Opposite World fantasy. White nationalists have become the heroes in their own dystopian stories.

    Bossy, triggered, badmouthing Joanna used the NYT as a bullhorn to call in a lynch mob against her own young sons and their friends.

    That's far beyond crazy.

    That's low.

    Now, all of those boys need some men—which means excluding daddy dimwit—to introduce them to the ideas of (i) emancipation from a rotten mother and (ii) the lawfulness of dominance of male sons over a rotten mother. Of course, the sons are too young to have all the skills and physical strength to exercise their lawful dominance, so a responsible male proxy is needed.

    I have been reading up on Joanna Schroeder for the past month(her very confessi0nal blog)

    Here is what I found in her blog:

    Joanna had lots of boyfriends in High School…in other words, Joanna had lots of teenage sex…In College, Joanna dated a lot of guys…more screwing around…..then after college, Joanna met the right guy…A White Man…nice guy…who probably didn’t screw around…They got married…..had a few boys…..These days Joanna and her “real nice guy husband”(Joanna’s words) have been in marriage therapy together-for awhile……Probably, because Joanna’s nice guy husband realizes that there were many other men before he came along….he had to wait on line for his turn……

    I got this all from her very confessional blog…..perhaps Joanna’s Teenage sons have figured out that their Mom was a High School Whore…..

    As is often the case, the comments most recommended by readers tend to be wiser than the article itself.

    The divide and conquer technique has been used from the beginning of time.

    It was why the sugar cane growers of Hawaii made sure they imported workers who spoke a variety of languages.

    It is why Jim Crow was used to divide poor blacks from poor whites.

    It is how poor Catholics and poor Protestants were set against each other in many parts of Europe, most recently Northern Ireland.

    It is what sets Shia against Sunni.

    It is why the Oligarchs set wypipo against POC.

    I remember when I was a kid, some scorpions made their way into a bathtub in our house. My brother would find ways to provoke the scorpions into fighting each other.

    So why not bash white men until the good whites and the bad whites fight against each other, like in Portland or Charlotte or many other places.

    It is why Jim Crow was used to divide poor blacks from poor whites.

    Hiya, Boomer.

    Damn. Fate is so fickle. Let’s chalk this one up as an opportunity lost. Wagging finger at Fortuna!

    Ms. J. Schroeder is a writer 🙂 Sure, and I’m a writer. We are all writers.

    If she should ever lose control of her car in future, and hit a relatively immovable object (let’s go with a tree — oh, an old oak for example), let’s hope that the kids are not aboard. It was good enough for Jackson Pollock. Let her go in peace. Her sacrifice will help her poor kids, not hinder them. Those kids are going to have a difficult life, regardless of her tenure maternal.

    It’s really weird that Progressives cannot understand history. They say the same about us. We just don’t kill as many people as they do. It’s important to keep that in mind.

    Progressives experiment, with often disastrous results. Normal people try to advance our collective lot, but we are more cautious.

  39. White women can’t even resist bashing their own sons. Which is a reflection of their estimation of the kids fathers and an inflated idea of their own sex market. Essau sold his heritage for a mess of pottage. This woman sold out her son for Twitter likes.

    Her kids future is over. The internet is forever.

    Wider point. How can society run by cool wine moms cutting out White men keep young White men from trying to burn everything down? Since lack of place = incel.

    Clinton interviewer Decca Aitkenhead is like a walking Whiskey post.

    "At 26, I fell in love with a wonderful man. Our wedding was magical, and everyone agreed we made a perfect couple. Even when our marriage went heartbreakingly wrong, I must still have believed I was lucky. If not, I could surely never have left my husband for an ex-con who wholesaled cocaine for a living.

    Tony was our neighbour, and a lifelong criminal who had spent much of his childhood behind bars; in his teens, he was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 14 years for gun crime. Loud, charismatic and good-looking, he was the kind of character anyone would want to have at their party. But to make a life with him? When I walked out of my marriage and we set up home together, everyone thought I must have lost my mind.

    In the early years of our relationship, I often thought they might be right. We made an absurdly unlikely couple. My world was media London, his a nocturnal demi-world of shady assignations in pub car parks. A difficult day in my line of work would involve an email argument with a publicist about a tricky interviewee. In his, a violent dispute about the purity of a consignment could wind up with someone in a car boot. Although I loved him with a fierce abandon, any future together looked a very bad bet."

    If course Chelsea has no problem with bearded women with penises entering her bathroom- she’s been protected by the secret service her whole life! It must be irritating to women in developing countries that they fight for the right to be left unmolested in their public bathrooms or transportation, or but Western “feminists” current number one priority is granting mentally ill men access to women’s private spaces and special protections.

    This might be the first article in years in which Hillary displayed an inkling of common sense. I’m genuinely surprised she was hesitant to express full support of trannies.

    Here’s a good 5,000-worder from the Washingtonian last May.

    What Happened After My 13-Year-Old Son Joined the Alt-Right: A Washington family’s nightmare year.

    https://www.washingtonian.com/2019/05/05/what-happened-after-my-13-year-old-son-joined-the-alt-right/

    hen my son Sam,* who was then 14, asked me to take him to the Mother of All Rallies on the Mall in September 2017, I said no.

    The whole thing is anonymous, good for the kid, but bad for credibility, and this thing stretches it. It has a complete narrative arc where the kid is eventually reformed, takes out the trash, and joins a anodyne school club.

    The problems had started when Sam was 13, barely a month into eighth grade. In the taxonomy of our local public school, his close group of friends was tagged edgy and liberal: One of them came out as gay during a class presentation; another identified as trans for a while. Their group-text chain pulsed 24-7 with observations about alternative music and the robotic conformity of other classmates. Standard stuff for sensitive middle-schoolers.

    One morning during first period, a male friend of Sam’s mentioned a meme whose suggestive name was an inside joke between the two of them. Sam laughed. A girl at the table overheard their private conversation, misconstrued it as a sexual reference, and reported it as sexual harassment. Sam’s guidance counselor pulled him out of his next class and accused him of “breaking the law.” Before long, he was in the office of a male administrator who informed him that the exchange was “illegal,” hinted that the police were coming, and delivered him into the custody of the school’s resource officer. At the administrator’s instruction, that man ushered Sam into an empty room, handed him a blank sheet of paper, and instructed him to write a “statement of guilt.”

    This Kafkaesque event launches the kid into the alt right. I love this touch: “another identified as trans for a while.”

    In the early 1990s, I saw how rare non-Caribbean black and Hispanic male college students were, while there were plenty of females. By the mid 1990s, I was seeing a severe shortage of white male college students.

    More recently, I saw some female teachers and administrators come close to destroying my son’s academic career while he was just a HD freshman. This was someone whose IQ was measured in the top 1%, was in danger of flunking out of HS, and the women pretended to care while stabbing him in the back. Fortunately, there were some male administrators and STEM teachers and mostly male coaches who set him on a better path.

    Ja, her motherly role seems to consist in getting them ready through psychological castration for their future existence as a mere appendage of some other psychotic yenta's path of ruination through the world. Put those dangerous and subversive balls in a jar on a high shelf, to be taken down to be only briefly used to impregnate the psychotic yenta, and then restored to place. Otherwise, her sons are to shuffle through life as joyless golems, their best and highest use, apparently.

    1978: Born (in Michigan?);
    Family origin: Joanna Schroeder’s father’s-side family origin is in Nebraska, partly in Lancaster County, Nebraska; the dominant ethnocultural element on her father’s side is German-Lutheran but she also has substantial Dutch ancestry (paternal grandmother’s maiden name: Lefferdink); Joanna’s maternal ancestry is in Michigan and also Dutch(Reformed)-German (surnames: Dykhuizen and Busker);
    – [speculative]: ca. mid to late 1990s: Joanna moves to California, from Michigan?, after high school with dreams of making it big (she is definitely in California by 2002 at the very latest, attending UCLA);
    – circa early 2000s: Gets married for first time “in a bar 30 stories above West Hollywood” (as she described it in a Nov. 2015 column), but was soon divorced (within a year?) to the unnamed man;
    – circa 2004: meets Ivan S********ch (UCLA, Economics, 1988), who has made a career in Hollywood (1995-Present), most recently as a producer; Joanna describes him as very tall and as having cried at the birth of their son whereas she did not (they had a child soon after beginning their relationship, but were only married years later, circa the mid 2010s as she describes in her Nov. 2015 column). Ivan has a Czech surname and is very likely of Christian origin. Will not republish the surname to keep the innocent son from being googled-down here;
    2005: BA, UCLA, Women’s Studies and Comparative Literature;
    2005/2006?: First son born; two more children (also with Ivan) born later;
    2011 to 2015: Managing Editor at The Good Men Project;
    2016 to Present: Senior Editor, Your Tango — “Love and relationship advice for women who are single, dating, married, living together or breaking up.”

    – Joanna Schroeder is a resident of Malibu, California, as of the 2010s, and possibly/probably? by mid 2000s;

    – is one of eight first-cousins. The cousins are listed as of 2013 (via an obituary) as resident in the following places: one in Malibu (this being Joanna Schroeder herself); one in Washington, D.C.; one in Kentucky; one in Denver; two in Michigan; and two back in the cultural hearthland of eastern Nebraska.

    I think in the 70s and 80s a shift in encouraging girls to be second rate boys began because smaller families meant fewer sons. Fathers of daughters only felt a need to channel their wishes and hopes for boys onto the shoulders of girls .

    I think ‘red pilling’ tends to start with a realisation that one is being lied to by the dominant culture on factual matters like crime rates & IQ. I don’t see that either PragerU or Jordan Peterson are generally guilty of this sin, but something like The Bell Curve can lead to detachment from The Narrative. For the kids, I’d think it’s all about the Memes, and rejection of the Totalitarian Nanny Statism – it’s easy to reject an ideology that hates you and wants you to die. At that point people are unmoored, and I think she’s right that Youtube algorithmns can lead to a down-the-rabbit-hole effect.

    I wonder if Miss Decca Aitkenhead, London journalist (and exactly the kind of woman targeted by Love Actually) saw the film some time between late 2003 or the first half of 2004, before deciding to throw in with “Tony” staring in about summer 2004 (when she says they started dating).

    Interesting theory. I hate, hate, hate Love Actually, to the absolute astonishment and sometimes visible discomfort of my British friends and acquaintances. They all adore that awful movie. Its cultural resonance seems to have been disproportionately profound.

    Interesting question: what movies have not just captured the zeitgeist, but have redefined or rechanneled it?

    Clinton interviewer Decca Aitkenhead is like a walking Whiskey post.

    "At 26, I fell in love with a wonderful man. Our wedding was magical, and everyone agreed we made a perfect couple. Even when our marriage went heartbreakingly wrong, I must still have believed I was lucky. If not, I could surely never have left my husband for an ex-con who wholesaled cocaine for a living.

    Tony was our neighbour, and a lifelong criminal who had spent much of his childhood behind bars; in his teens, he was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 14 years for gun crime. Loud, charismatic and good-looking, he was the kind of character anyone would want to have at their party. But to make a life with him? When I walked out of my marriage and we set up home together, everyone thought I must have lost my mind.

    In the early years of our relationship, I often thought they might be right. We made an absurdly unlikely couple. My world was media London, his a nocturnal demi-world of shady assignations in pub car parks. A difficult day in my line of work would involve an email argument with a publicist about a tricky interviewee. In his, a violent dispute about the purity of a consignment could wind up with someone in a car boot. Although I loved him with a fierce abandon, any future together looked a very bad bet."

    This is an evergreen genre. Someone should edit an anthology of "My white son the incipient Nazi" columns.

    I suspect some of these writers do not even have sons and are the stereotypical childless spinster New York web writer types. But by filing a piece like they they get their $25.

    My favorites fall into the subgenre of "My boy started to play with toy guns. I took them away and he used sticks as gun placeholders." I'm eager to see how these columns mesh with upcoming pieces like "My daughter is playing with the new female toy green soldiers. Should I be aghast or happy at her gender nonbinariness?"

    If they woman quoted the ADL to her son while explaining why "triggered" is such a sensitive word, I can only hope the boy heroically rolled his eyes. Teenage is a good age to start setting boundaries.

    BTW, where's Dad on this? A mother should be loved, but not set the household politics.

    BTW, where’s Dad on this?

    From a June 2015 column by Joanna Schroeder titled “My Husband Is A Better ‘Mother’ Than I Am“:

    It surprises people to learn that I’m the tough one in our family and that my tall, broad-shouldered husband is the softie. Society tells us that moms are supposed to be the nurturers—cooking, cleaning and bandaging boo-boos. Dads are supposed to be the breadwinners and the task masters. Remember how they used to say, “Wait until your father gets home!” to scare naughty little kids?

    But those are outdated stereotypes […]

    Personally, I wasn’t sure I wanted to have kids until I met my husband. I wondered if I even had that “mom” gene inside me, since the idea of raising kids scared me. But when I saw the way he moved through the world with such a profound goodness and kindness to his nature, I knew he’d be the perfect parenting partner for me—an open-hearted match for my highly analytical nature.

    My first real experience of our differences happened when our first son was born. My husband cried and I didn’t. I was tired, and that was my excuse for feeling detached, but the truth is that I didn’t immediately connect with that seven pound squealing bundle of baby. He was cute, for sure, but the whole process was confusing and almost too heady for me.

    Even as our boys grow older and society seems to insist that we “toughen them up,” my husband is still a model of nurturing parenthood. We’ve chosen to surrounded ourselves with other dads who are nurturers, like my husband’s brothers and friends. These guys are models of 21st Century fatherhood, and it’s beautiful to watch.

    This article was one of the sources for the profile of Joanna Schroeder I put together and posted above.

    When you throw your sons under the bus to make a buck, particularly in today’s extreme anti-male anti-white the-internet-is-forever climate, your “mom gene” is pretty shitty. Maybe deep down she’s mad her husband is a bit of a wuss and takes it out on her sons. Poor kids, I wish them luck but if they’re laughing over memes and mocking the word “triggering” they sound like typical modern teen boys and probably ignore her liberal bs.
  110. @Steve in Greensboro
    "Triggering" is an expression which comes from psychiatry having to do with the mentally ill. The expression is so promiscuously used by SJWs that it causes the rest of us to think that perhaps they are all mentally ill. Which might not be so far from the truth.

    People who can be legitimately triggered would be soldiers with PTSD, or survivors of rape or childhood sexual abuse. One time me and a girl I used to date were watching a movie, which unbeknownst to us had a scene where the main character is raped by her uncle – something that had actually happened to my gf. She started crying hysterically and we obviously did not finish the movie. This is what real “triggering” looks like.

    Ms. Schroeder’s racial makeup is Jewish

    A fair guess, but wrong in this case. Joanna Schroeder is of entirely White-Protestant origin. All four of her grandparents were Midwest Christians (source: obituaries), of primarily (or entirely) Dutch and German ancestry.

    (FWIW, I don’t think Schroeder is often a Jewish surname, in any case.)

    I suspect Joanna Schroeder’s politics, and conspicuous-consumption-style shrill activism to include the public condemnation of her own son, are because she feels like an outsider in the outer-tier elite circles in Southern California she travels in (residence: Malibu).

    [MORE]

    [The Joanna Schroeder case is] the old story of the upwardly-aspirant-but-somewhat-insecure Middle America type (Midwesterner, in this case) who shows up in the Big City (Southern California) and makes it.

    Joanna Schroeder did well, in many ways, winding up resident in ultra-exclusive Malibu (often a target of Steve Sailer’s irony), with children by a Hollywood producer. She herself has fallen into a rather fluffy, minor role in the US cultural apparatus.

    It all must weigh on her.

    As is often the case, the comments most recommended by readers tend to be wiser than the article itself.

    The divide and conquer technique has been used from the beginning of time.

    It was why the sugar cane growers of Hawaii made sure they imported workers who spoke a variety of languages.

    It is why Jim Crow was used to divide poor blacks from poor whites.

    It is how poor Catholics and poor Protestants were set against each other in many parts of Europe, most recently Northern Ireland.

    It is what sets Shia against Sunni.

    It is why the Oligarchs set wypipo against POC.

    I remember when I was a kid, some scorpions made their way into a bathtub in our house. My brother would find ways to provoke the scorpions into fighting each other.

    So why not bash white men until the good whites and the bad whites fight against each other, like in Portland or Charlotte or many other places.

    As is often the case, the comments most recommended by readers tend to be wiser than the article itself.

    Not as wise as I would like. Here’s a crazy reader response to one of the more sane comments: “the system was built by and for white men, and in all ways they, in general, are better served by it than the rest of us. Those men you reference need to honestly ask themselves if they would want to be black or brown or female in addition to being non-affluent and unprivileged.”

    It’s funny that both brown and black men seem to be better served in systems built by white men than in systems built by their own. Black and browns often do better in white men’s countries – often by an order of magnitude or more – than in their own. And when they flee their own countries it is usually because of problems caused by their own (e.g., the insanely high rates of violence and corruption in Central America). I would also wager that the wealth gap between whites and blacks/browns is greater in countries where whites are a minority than in countries where whites are in the majority.

    The problems had started when Sam was 13, barely a month into eighth grade. In the taxonomy of our local public school, his close group of friends was tagged edgy and liberal: One of them came out as gay during a class presentation; another identified as trans for a while. Their group-text chain pulsed 24-7 with observations about alternative music and the robotic conformity of other classmates. Standard stuff for sensitive middle-schoolers.

    One morning during first period, a male friend of Sam’s mentioned a meme whose suggestive name was an inside joke between the two of them. Sam laughed. A girl at the table overheard their private conversation, misconstrued it as a sexual reference, and reported it as sexual harassment. Sam’s guidance counselor pulled him out of his next class and accused him of “breaking the law.” Before long, he was in the office of a male administrator who informed him that the exchange was “illegal,” hinted that the police were coming, and delivered him into the custody of the school’s resource officer. At the administrator’s instruction, that man ushered Sam into an empty room, handed him a blank sheet of paper, and instructed him to write a “statement of guilt.”

    It’s just part of the Marxian dogma of heightening the contradictions, a elemental part of Critical Theory.

    One is not supposed — in this world view — to argue for a particular political or ideological position, but just attack the established bourgeois order, so that this ‘critique’ can break down the cultural sense of the establishment for what is right and wrong.

    Marx was ever the clepto-creative, he never had a original thought in his head (except the labour theory of value, which was rubbish), so he ‘adopted’ Hegel’s idea about Thesis, Antithesis and then Synthesis for his own ideology.

    This latter day Marxist do this now with SpongeBob; what exists (thesis), when critically examined (antithesis), will result (synthesis) in Utopia. Childish, I know, but in the collectivist mindset it all makes sense. Critical Theory is all about attacking what is not Communist.

    Most of the left's lingo comes from the traditionally Jewish professions of psychiatry, sociology, social work, and so on. When we recast the facts in the lingo of psychiatry it is easier to slip in an unearned assumption that a particular thought or behavior is to be considered not on its merits but as a symptom of some mental illness.

    When a group of psychoanalysts signed an ad to the effect that 1960 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater was mentally ill, it rebounded against them, since Goldwater was not only very sane but well-connected, a colonel in the air force, and part-Jewish. He moved to the left later in life putting to rout any fears that he may have been crazy. For decades the psychiatric profession avoided attributing mental illness to conservatives they had not actually examined out of respect for the Goldwater precedent, but with Trump the old restraints are being shed and once again we are faced with Jewish psychologists attributing disagreement with their dogmas to mental illness.

    The only cure for it is to conduct a thorough expose of the failure of psychology and related social "sciences" to meet the requirements for genuine scientific status. Psychology, whether 'pop' or festooned with arcane neurological 'findings', is basically a grab-bag of half-baked hunches and 20-20 hindsight, with zero predictive power, which is the acid test of a science. As my old philosophy professor used to say, psychology is "third-rate physiology at best."

    Back in the early 1990s, while teaching at some colleges, I saw how anti-male the schools are.

    In the early 1990s, I saw how rare non-Caribbean black and Hispanic male college students were, while there were plenty of females. By the mid 1990s, I was seeing a severe shortage of white male college students.

    More recently, I saw some female teachers and administrators come close to destroying my son’s academic career while he was just a HD freshman. This was someone whose IQ was measured in the top 1%, was in danger of flunking out of HS, and the women pretended to care while stabbing him in the back.

    Black men suffer plenty of discrimination in this country, not because they're black, but because they're male. If only we could get them-- and ourselves-- to see if that way.

    The horror stories recounted in Helen Smith's Men on Strike usually don't mention race, and could go either way. Particularly those about men hit up for child support of kids who turn out not to be theirs.

    Mid-90s was a little early. That was the crossover point where females began to outnumber men but just barely. Between 2000 and 2006, the % of men with bachelor's degrees fell precipitously while women kept climbing. Since then, the %'s have risen in parallel but the gap that opened up by 2006 has not closed.

    Among the lower classes (white and black) the female advantage is even greater. Females are better able to adapt themselves to the modern female dominated education regimen while lower class men lack the sitzfleisch that is necessary and get pushed out of the system if they don't drop out on their own.

    But where is the writer based?
     
    She isn't based, of course. But she does appear to be a resident of Los Angeles and a UCLA alum, going by her online public biographical information.

    Joanna Schroeder is a prolific writer on a very narrow set of topics, and appears to think that micromanaging her children's mental development—proceeding from carefully considered feminist first principles—is the best way to parent. And she sure does have a ton of opinions on how to raise boys. I don't know if she is Jewish, but she sure fits the Jewish mom stereotype to a T, suitably updated for 2019.

    Ja, her motherly role seems to consist in getting them ready through psychological castration for their future existence as a mere appendage of some other psychotic yenta’s path of ruination through the world. Put those dangerous and subversive balls in a jar on a high shelf, to be taken down to be only briefly used to impregnate the psychotic yenta, and then restored to place. Otherwise, her sons are to shuffle through life as joyless golems, their best and highest use, apparently.

    It appears that Joanna Schroeder is of entirely of NW-European Protestant origin, mainly or entirely Dutch and German. Her husband, despite being a 25-year Hollywood 'veteran,' is of Czech ancestry, and highly likely of Christian origin.

    __________

    I think some of the unfortunate case of Joanna Schroeder, volunteer auxiliary cultural-compliance enforcer, can be explained by the old story of the upwardly-aspirant-but-somewhat-insecure Middle America type (Midwesterner, in this case) who shows up in the Big City (Southern California) and makes it.

    Joanna Schroeder did well, in many ways, winding up resident in ultra-exclusive Malibu (often a target of Steve Sailer's irony), with children by a Hollywood producer. She herself has fallen into a rather fluffy, minor role in the US cultural apparatus.

    It all must weigh on her.

    We know a couple with one of those surnames (and thus likely related) who were married by a female pastor (is there any other?) at a UCC church. The combined names got unwieldy and the hyphen was eventually dropped. Last I heard they were Bernie-bots, but with at least three kids I wonder how long that youthful idealism can last.

This was someone whose IQ was measured in the top 1%, was in danger of flunking out of HS, and the women pretended to care while stabbing him in the back. Fortunately, there were some male administrators and STEM teachers and mostly male coaches who set him on a better path.

    Mid-90s was a little early. That was the crossover point where females began to outnumber men but just barely. Between 2000 and 2006, the % of men with bachelor’s degrees fell precipitously while women kept climbing. Since then, the %’s have risen in parallel but the gap that opened up by 2006 has not closed.

    Among the lower classes (white and black) the female advantage is even greater. Females are better able to adapt themselves to the modern female dominated education regimen while lower class men lack the sitzfleisch that is necessary and get pushed out of the system if they don’t drop out on their own.

When I walked out of my marriage and we set up home together, everyone thought I must have lost my mind.

    In the early years of our relationship, I often thought they might be right. We made an absurdly unlikely couple.

There have been many cases where children find out only as adults that their "father" is not really their biological father (sometimes due to "non-paternity", other times because in the past people did not always tell their kids that they were the products of artificial insemination, etc.) and this does not change their relationship, which is built on a lifetime of shared experience and not just a genetic link.

In other words, it's a reaction against a "mainstream conservatism" that neither conserves anything nor gives white Americans any particular reason to vote for it except that it's not quite as hostile to them as the Democrats.

    BTW, does the ADL consider an objection to more pointless wars for Israel sufficient proof of anti-Semitism?

    Lastly, the mom is reading way too much into her son's use of the word "triggering."

    The ADL identifies “based” as far-right slang for “uncucked” — no good-thinking writer would have that word appear in their byline anymore.

    Based has a double heritage: it was a Christian satirical response to the punk band name Thank You Based God, which spread through 4chan’s apolitical humor threads as Thank You, Based X (ie, the atheist implication is mooted by making the words meaningless), but somewhere in there a hip hop subculture started using based to mean good, and during 2016 based and redpilled became a designator of a kind of political correctness, and then a sarcastic undoing of same by deliberate misuse.

    Back in the early 1990s, while teaching at some colleges, I saw how anti-male the schools are.

    In the early 1990s, I saw how rare non-Caribbean black and Hispanic male college students were, while there were plenty of females. By the mid 1990s, I was seeing a severe shortage of white male college students.

    More recently, I saw some female teachers and administrators come close to destroying my son’s academic career while he was just a HD freshman. This was someone whose IQ was measured in the top 1%, was in danger of flunking out of HS, and the women pretended to care while stabbing him in the back. Fortunately, there were some male administrators and STEM teachers and mostly male coaches who set him on a better path.

    If we can’t burn it down we can at least refuse to help, and smile snarkily as people run around demanding to know why the power keeps going out and the water’s no longer drinkable.

    Mid-90s was a little early. That was the crossover point where females began to outnumber men but just barely. Between 2000 and 2006, the % of men with bachelor's degrees fell precipitously while women kept climbing. Since then, the %'s have risen in parallel but the gap that opened up by 2006 has not closed.

    Among the lower classes (white and black) the female advantage is even greater. Females are better able to adapt themselves to the modern female dominated education regimen while lower class men lack the sitzfleisch that is necessary and get pushed out of the system if they don't drop out on their own.

    Most of the left's lingo comes from the traditionally Jewish professions of psychiatry, sociology, social work, and so on. When we recast the facts in the lingo of psychiatry it is easier to slip in an unearned assumption that a particular thought or behavior is to be considered not on its merits but as a symptom of some mental illness.

    When a group of psychoanalysts signed an ad to the effect that 1960 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater was mentally ill, it rebounded against them, since Goldwater was not only very sane but well-connected, a colonel in the air force, and part-Jewish. He moved to the left later in life putting to rout any fears that he may have been crazy. For decades the psychiatric profession avoided attributing mental illness to conservatives they had not actually examined out of respect for the Goldwater precedent, but with Trump the old restraints are being shed and once again we are faced with Jewish psychologists attributing disagreement with their dogmas to mental illness.

    The only cure for it is to conduct a thorough expose of the failure of psychology and related social "sciences" to meet the requirements for genuine scientific status. Psychology, whether 'pop' or festooned with arcane neurological 'findings', is basically a grab-bag of half-baked hunches and 20-20 hindsight, with zero predictive power, which is the acid test of a science. As my old philosophy professor used to say, psychology is "third-rate physiology at best."

    The Soviets also considered disagreement with mainstream Communist positions as mental illness and would sometime hospitalize and forcibly medicate dissidents. Politics and medicine should not mix but Trump hatred has meant that all bets are off.

    It was why the sugar cane growers of Hawaii made sure they imported workers who spoke a variety of languages.

    It is why Jim Crow was used to divide poor blacks from poor whites.

    It is how poor Catholics and poor Protestants were set against each other in many parts of Europe, most recently Northern Ireland.

    It is what sets Shia against Sunni.

    It is why the Oligarchs set wypipo against POC.

    I remember when I was a kid, some scorpions made their way into a bathtub in our house. My brother would find ways to provoke the scorpions into fighting each other.

    So why not bash white men until the good whites and the bad whites fight against each other, like in Portland or Charlotte or many other places.

    I'm not sure that the analogy holds up. The point is that you develop a relationship with the kids that you are parenting. Adults are free to begin and end relationships but children are deemed worthy of special protection.

    I should add that a relationship should involve more than just sending a child support check every month. There have been many cases where children find out only as adults that their "father" is not really their biological father (sometimes due to "non-paternity", other times because in the past people did not always tell their kids that they were the products of artificial insemination, etc.) and this does not change their relationship, which is built on a lifetime of shared experience and not just a genetic link.

    There is a saying:

    Any [fertile] man can father a child.
    It takes a special man to be a dad.

    It was about 1997 when I first taught an all-white Organic Chemistry class in flyover country. Before then I had taught in NYC.

    I was amazed that there were fewer male than female students in that class, since pre-meds had been traditionally male.

    Overall, that university was about 60-40 female for the undergrads. And that was back in the 1997, and they even had some foreign students.

    People who "divide and conquer" don't create those divisions, they just exploit them. The divisions are real. Because people are different. That's what diversity means - that different people are actually - you know - diverse, i.e. different. And they can't always just get along.

    Sometimes they create the divisions, sometimes they exploit them.

    BTW, where’s Dad on this?
     
    From a June 2015 column by Joanna Schroeder titled "My Husband Is A Better 'Mother' Than I Am":

    It surprises people to learn that I'm the tough one in our family and that my tall, broad-shouldered husband is the softie. Society tells us that moms are supposed to be the nurturers—cooking, cleaning and bandaging boo-boos. Dads are supposed to be the breadwinners and the task masters. Remember how they used to say, "Wait until your father gets home!" to scare naughty little kids?

    But those are outdated stereotypes [...]
     


    Personally, I wasn't sure I wanted to have kids until I met my husband. I wondered if I even had that "mom" gene inside me, since the idea of raising kids scared me. But when I saw the way he moved through the world with such a profound goodness and kindness to his nature, I knew he'd be the perfect parenting partner for me—an open-hearted match for my highly analytical nature.

    My first real experience of our differences happened when our first son was born. My husband cried and I didn't. I was tired, and that was my excuse for feeling detached, but the truth is that I didn't immediately connect with that seven pound squealing bundle of baby. He was cute, for sure, but the whole process was confusing and almost too heady for me.
     


    Even as our boys grow older and society seems to insist that we "toughen them up," my husband is still a model of nurturing parenthood. We've chosen to surrounded ourselves with other dads who are nurturers, like my husband's brothers and friends. These guys are models of 21st Century fatherhood, and it's beautiful to watch.
     
    This article was one of the sources for the profile of Joanna Schroeder I put together and posted above.

    I wondered if I even had that “mom” gene inside me

    When you throw your sons under the bus to make a buck, particularly in today’s extreme anti-male anti-white the-internet-is-forever climate, your “mom gene” is pretty shitty. Maybe deep down she’s mad her husband is a bit of a wuss and takes it out on her sons.

    Also, that Tweet is inaccurate: the best students in China stay at home for undergrad. US universities, particularly the lower-tier ones, are often used by parents who know that their kids don't stand a chance on the gaokao. Now, Chinese educational competition is insanely brutal, so I wouldn't go so far as to say they that they are all or even mostly mediocre academically, but it's just like the H2-B programming racket: people are claiming there is a huge superiority over their US counterparts-not the population as a whole, their counterparts-when there really isn't. But their parents pay full-price, so the universities, particularly lower-tier ones, love them.

    Maybe it wasn't "diversity" for diversity's sake that made the Egypt of yesteryear interesting and intelligent than the Egypt of today. Hell, the Caucasus mountains are "diverse" in the aggregate but most people seem far more interested in visiting Armenia and Georgia than in visiting Chechnya or Dagestan, even though the latter is considered ethnically very diverse (and certainly more so than Armenia or Georgia). Rhetorical question: why do you think that is?

    That Islamic and Arabic cultures tend to grow into less pleasant, prosperous, interesting and intelligent societies than Christian and European ones isn't very politically correct but there's no way around it.

    Clinton interviewer Decca Aitkenhead is like a walking Whiskey post.

    "At 26, I fell in love with a wonderful man. Our wedding was magical, and everyone agreed we made a perfect couple. Even when our marriage went heartbreakingly wrong, I must still have believed I was lucky. If not, I could surely never have left my husband for an ex-con who wholesaled cocaine for a living.

    Tony was our neighbour, and a lifelong criminal who had spent much of his childhood behind bars; in his teens, he was sentenced at the Old Bailey to 14 years for gun crime. Loud, charismatic and good-looking, he was the kind of character anyone would want to have at their party. But to make a life with him? When I walked out of my marriage and we set up home together, everyone thought I must have lost my mind.

    In the early years of our relationship, I often thought they might be right. We made an absurdly unlikely couple. My world was media London, his a nocturnal demi-world of shady assignations in pub car parks. A difficult day in my line of work would involve an email argument with a publicist about a tricky interviewee. In his, a violent dispute about the purity of a consignment could wind up with someone in a car boot. Although I loved him with a fierce abandon, any future together looked a very bad bet."

    "Maybe Whisky has been right all these years, even if for specious reasons."

    Nah ... his reasons are correct, women do have a tendency (for good evolutionary reasons) to love bad boys - but like most behaviours, there's a spectrum, and Decca is at the far end of it, not in the middle.

    There's also a tendency to be turned on by male displays of dominance/power, even if those displays are utterly pathetic i.e. with victims who can't fight back.

    When some underclass low-lives in the UK are jailed for torturing (often to death) some poor guy with "learning difficulties" who is "cared for" (i.e. abandoned) "in the community" (i.e. some grotty council flat) there's usually a girl or two involved, either watching the torture or joining in. At one end of THIS spectrum we find Rosemary West or Myra Hindley.

    Joanna Schroeder

    https://i0.wp.com/www.heroicgirls.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/joanna.jpg

    - 1978: Born (in Michigan?);
    - Family origin: Joanna Schroeder's father's-side family origin is in Nebraska, partly in Lancaster County, Nebraska; the dominant ethnocultural element on her father's side is German-Lutheran but she also has substantial Dutch ancestry (paternal grandmother's maiden name: Lefferdink); Joanna's maternal ancestry is in Michigan and also Dutch(Reformed)-German (surnames: Dykhuizen and Busker);
    - [speculative]: ca. mid to late 1990s: Joanna moves to California, from Michigan?, after high school with dreams of making it big (she is definitely in California by 2002 at the very latest, attending UCLA);
    - circa early 2000s: Gets married for first time "in a bar 30 stories above West Hollywood" (as she described it in a Nov. 2015 column), but was soon divorced (within a year?) to the unnamed man;
    - circa 2004: meets Ivan S********ch (UCLA, Economics, 1988), who has made a career in Hollywood (1995-Present), most recently as a producer; Joanna describes him as very tall and as having cried at the birth of their son whereas she did not (they had a child soon after beginning their relationship, but were only married years later, circa the mid 2010s as she describes in her Nov. 2015 column). Ivan has a Czech surname and is very likely of Christian origin. Will not republish the surname to keep the innocent son from being googled-down here;
    - 2005: BA, UCLA, Women's Studies and Comparative Literature;
    - 2005/2006?: First son born; two more children (also with Ivan) born later;
    - 2011 to 2015: Managing Editor at The Good Men Project;
    - 2016 to Present: Senior Editor, Your Tango -- "Love and relationship advice for women who are single, dating, married, living together or breaking up."

    - Joanna Schroeder is a resident of Malibu, California, as of the 2010s, and possibly/probably? by mid 2000s;

    - is one of eight first-cousins. The cousins are listed as of 2013 (via an obituary) as resident in the following places: one in Malibu (this being Joanna Schroeder herself); one in Washington, D.C.; one in Kentucky; one in Denver; two in Michigan; and two back in the cultural hearthland of eastern Nebraska.

    Tagline:

    [Joanna Schroeder is a] Feminist writer an editor with an eye on issues surrounding raising boys. I'm also a mother, a wife, and a mountain biking enthusiast.
     
    - Major sections of her personal Tumblr include:
    - "Parenting and Raising my Boys,"
    - "Relationships, Sex, and Love,"
    - "My Writing: Feminism, Body Image, and Women's Issues." (Stray comment: I once again find myself irked by this kind of use of the word "Issues." I notice people, more usually women, use this word to cover up having nothing direct to say, to be deliberately ambivalent, to inflate their own self-importance by implying the matter at hand is big and complex.)

    She was 27. Not 22, but not 32 either.

    Some people are more than bright enough for higher education, but just aren't mature enough for it as a teenager. This is more common with men from my experience, which would intuitively line up with a slower rate of maturation combined with less of the sitzfleisch necessary to be a high-performing student in high school/early college. That said, I'm sure there are women out there that fit the same pattern. The fields I've been in have all been highly male-dominated, so I've only personally known a couple, but there's no reason why you wouldn't see more of that with more women numerically, period. Anywhom, I've known multiple guys who went to get physics/math/CS/engineering degrees-including doctorates-in their 30s after working as manual laborers or some other crap job-or in a couple of extreme cases, NEETdom/unemployment-for almost all of their 20s.

    I wonder if Miss Decca Aitkenhead, London journalist, and exactly the kind of woman targeted by Love Actually, saw the film, in late 2003 or the first half of 2004, before deciding to throw in with “Tony.”

     

    Interesting theory. I hate, hate, hate Love Actually, to the absolute astonishment and sometimes visible discomfort of my British friends and acquaintances. They all adore that awful movie. Its cultural resonance seems to have been disproportionately profound.

    Interesting question: what movies have not just captured the zeitgeist, but have redefined or rechanneled it?

    Love Actually blows dead dogs, but chicks love it. Most of them, however, don’t take it as an instruction manual.

  193. @Charon

    This is an evergreen genre. Someone should edit an anthology of “My white son the incipient Nazi” columns.
     
    Could indeed be a thing. My mom is like that and she made me like this. Well, she helped.

    A current update on old joke:

    “My mother made me a Nazi”.

    “If I buy her the wool, will she make me one too?”

  194. @Jack D
    It's so obvious that it isn't even true. Not everything bad in the world is Jewish. Jews are a small minority in America. They form a disproportionate % of leftist idiots but even if they are over-represented by a factor of ten, they can still only account for maybe 20% or 25% of leftist idiots. That leaves 80% (like Schroeder) who aren't.

    So she’s not Jewish and the mother of 2 White boys of the untouchable non affirmative action class.

    For all of human history parents and cultures were far more protective of girls than boys.
    But since Satan’s minions enacted the 1968 affirmative action laws it’s our boys we have to be very protective of. She should start checking black on all the forms she fills out for then starting high school. They’ll be set for life.

    If she’s honest about their race she might have to support her unemployable untouchable caste sons for the rest of their lives

    Italians can check Hispanic. Germans Anglos Scandinavians and French surnames should check black. It’s not realistic for Slavs. But all the computers and HR cares about is the check in the black box. Southwestern Whites might consider a legal name change to Hispanic.

    White 105 IQ and 3.00 average and a Hispanic surname or the black box gets your son into a top 25 college and job offers pouring in first quarter of junior year.

    Do the right thing by your sons.

  195. Her boys were in the car. They are old enough to take buses all over town. So why does she drive them around? Malibu kids used to have to take the Metri bus to Santa Monica high school. Even the wealthiest movie stars and producers kids took that bus. Now Malibu has its own high school so no more bus to Santa Monica

    Because public transportation in most cities is just too dangerous and unpleasant for White children.
    And, as soon as non black children observe black children and adults behavior in public they dislike and disdain blacks.

    Here’s a conversation I over heard among several White kids who went to all White schools but took city buses to those schools, sports activities adventures all over town
    It was Black History Month

    1 Listen to this. They used to have to sit in the back of the bus.
    2. What a good idea!!
    3. Could we have that here?
    4. How can we have that here?

    Maybe the witch drives her kids around so they’re never exposed to blacks. Obvious she’s a freelancer supported by a similar black loving sissy soy boy husband. If she had a real job she’d be at work in the afternoon and unable to pick up the kids at 2/45. Or they’d have a driver pick them up.

    The combined names got unwieldy and the hyphen was eventually dropped.
     
    Combining surnames sounds good but then you realize it only works for one generation, and Generation 2 are left holding the bag. A kind of pyramid scheme. I hear Germany has outlawed doubled (hyphenated) surnames for that reason.

    Yes. John Jacob-Jingle-Heimer-Schmidt was a bridge too far.

  197. Interesting she has all that German Lutheran cerca 1900 immigrant info in her autobiography. Wait till her boys are old enough to drive to nearby Santa Monica and get jumped by 7 or 8 blacks. Wait till they’re turned by every college because they’re White.

Maybe deep down she’s mad her husband is a bit of a wuss and takes it out on her sons. Poor kids, I wish them luck but if they’re laughing over memes and mocking the word “triggering” they sound like typical modern teen boys and probably ignore her liberal bs.

    Swimming…just another thing in the long list of things they don’t do well.

    I'm not sure that the analogy holds up. The point is that you develop a relationship with the kids that you are parenting. Adults are free to begin and end relationships but children are deemed worthy of special protection.

    I should add that a relationship should involve more than just sending a child support check every month. There have been many cases where children find out only as adults that their "father" is not really their biological father (sometimes due to "non-paternity", other times because in the past people did not always tell their kids that they were the products of artificial insemination, etc.) and this does not change their relationship, which is built on a lifetime of shared experience and not just a genetic link.

    I went to high school with a girl who, somewhere around 11th grade, learned that the man she that she thought was her father was not only not her father, he wasn’t the father of her little sister either.

    They were at an age that allowed kids to decide which parent they wanted to live with post-divorce, and both girls chose the man and he was happy to have them – he’d spent the prior 15 and 17 years raising them, bonding with them, watching them grow up, etc. Years later when she married, she didn’t invite her mother to the wedding.

    Back in the early 1990s, while teaching at some colleges, I saw how anti-male the schools are.

    In the early 1990s, I saw how rare non-Caribbean black and Hispanic male college students were, while there were plenty of females. By the mid 1990s, I was seeing a severe shortage of white male college students.

    More recently, I saw some female teachers and administrators come close to destroying my son’s academic career while he was just a HD freshman. This was someone whose IQ was measured in the top 1%, was in danger of flunking out of HS, and the women pretended to care while stabbing him in the back. Fortunately, there were some male administrators and STEM teachers and mostly male coaches who set him on a better path.

    "Maybe Whisky has been right all these years, even if for specious reasons."

    Nah ... his reasons are correct, women do have a tendency (for good evolutionary reasons) to love bad boys - but like most behaviours, there's a spectrum, and Decca is at the far end of it, not in the middle.

    There's also a tendency to be turned on by male displays of dominance/power, even if those displays are utterly pathetic i.e. with victims who can't fight back.

    When some underclass low-lives in the UK are jailed for torturing (often to death) some poor guy with "learning difficulties" who is "cared for" (i.e. abandoned) "in the community" (i.e. some grotty council flat) there's usually a girl or two involved, either watching the torture or joining in. At one end of THIS spectrum we find Rosemary West or Myra Hindley.

    In the bad old days people with "learning difficulties" in the UK were cared for in large institutions, known as 'loony-bins', and I'm sure there'll have been suffering at the hands of their 'carers'.

    But it's only since "care in the community" became a thing that they've been given the worst flats with the worst neighbours, who may end up killing them for the lols. The deaths are really the only cases that hit the headlines, unless the abuse happens in public, like the poor woman who collapsed in the street and was urinated on by a local man.

    Now, all of those boys need some men—which means excluding daddy dimwit—to introduce them to the ideas of (i) emancipation from a rotten mother and (ii) the lawfulness of dominance of male sons over a rotten mother. Of course, the sons are too young to have all the skills and physical strength to exercise their lawful dominance, so a responsible male proxy is needed.

    hen my son Sam,* who was then 14, asked me to take him to the Mother of All Rallies on the Mall in September 2017, I said no.
     
    The whole thing is anonymous, good for the kid, but bad for credibility, and this thing stretches it. It has a complete narrative arc where the kid is eventually reformed, takes out the trash, and joins a anodyne school club.

    The problems had started when Sam was 13, barely a month into eighth grade. In the taxonomy of our local public school, his close group of friends was tagged edgy and liberal: One of them came out as gay during a class presentation; another identified as trans for a while. Their group-text chain pulsed 24-7 with observations about alternative music and the robotic conformity of other classmates. Standard stuff for sensitive middle-schoolers.

    One morning during first period, a male friend of Sam’s mentioned a meme whose suggestive name was an inside joke between the two of them. Sam laughed. A girl at the table overheard their private conversation, misconstrued it as a sexual reference, and reported it as sexual harassment. Sam’s guidance counselor pulled him out of his next class and accused him of “breaking the law.” Before long, he was in the office of a male administrator who informed him that the exchange was “illegal,” hinted that the police were coming, and delivered him into the custody of the school’s resource officer. At the administrator’s instruction, that man ushered Sam into an empty room, handed him a blank sheet of paper, and instructed him to write a “statement of guilt.”
     

    This Kafkaesque event launches the kid into the alt right. I love this touch: "another identified as trans for a while."

    It appears that Joanna Schroeder is of entirely of NW-European Protestant origin, mainly or entirely Dutch and German. Her husband, despite being a 25-year Hollywood 'veteran,' is of Czech ancestry, and highly likely of Christian origin.

    __________

    I think some of the unfortunate case of Joanna Schroeder, volunteer auxiliary cultural-compliance enforcer, can be explained by the old story of the upwardly-aspirant-but-somewhat-insecure Middle America type (Midwesterner, in this case) who shows up in the Big City (Southern California) and makes it.

    Joanna Schroeder did well, in many ways, winding up resident in ultra-exclusive Malibu (often a target of Steve Sailer's irony), with children by a Hollywood producer. She herself has fallen into a rather fluffy, minor role in the US cultural apparatus.

    It all must weigh on her.

    - Family origin: Joanna Schroeder's father's-side family origin is in Nebraska, partly in Lancaster County, Nebraska; the dominant ethnocultural element on her father's side is German-Lutheran but she also has substantial Dutch ancestry (paternal grandmother's maiden name: Lefferdink); Joanna's maternal ancestry is in Michigan and also Dutch(Reformed)-German (surnames: Dykhuizen and Busker);
    - [speculative]: ca. mid to late 1990s: Joanna moves to California, from Michigan?, after high school with dreams of making it big (she is definitely in California by 2002 at the very latest, attending UCLA);
    - circa early 2000s: Gets married for first time "in a bar 30 stories above West Hollywood" (as she described it in a Nov. 2015 column), but was soon divorced (within a year?) to the unnamed man;
    - circa 2004: meets Ivan S********ch (UCLA, Economics, 1988), who has made a career in Hollywood (1995-Present), most recently as a producer; Joanna describes him as very tall and as having cried at the birth of their son whereas she did not (they had a child soon after beginning their relationship, but were only married years later, circa the mid 2010s as she describes in her Nov. 2015 column). Ivan has a Czech surname and is very likely of Christian origin. Will not republish the surname to keep the innocent son from being googled-down here;
    - 2005: BA, UCLA, Women's Studies and Comparative Literature;
    - 2005/2006?: First son born; two more children (also with Ivan) born later;
    - 2011 to 2015: Managing Editor at The Good Men Project;
    - 2016 to Present: Senior Editor, Your Tango -- "Love and relationship advice for women who are single, dating, married, living together or breaking up."

    - Joanna Schroeder is a resident of Malibu, California, as of the 2010s, and possibly/probably? by mid 2000s;

    - is one of eight first-cousins. The cousins are listed as of 2013 (via an obituary) as resident in the following places: one in Malibu (this being Joanna Schroeder herself); one in Washington, D.C.; one in Kentucky; one in Denver; two in Michigan; and two back in the cultural hearthland of eastern Nebraska.

    Tagline:

    [Joanna Schroeder is a] Feminist writer an editor with an eye on issues surrounding raising boys. I'm also a mother, a wife, and a mountain biking enthusiast.
     
    - Major sections of her personal Tumblr include:
    - "Parenting and Raising my Boys,"
    - "Relationships, Sex, and Love,"
    - "My Writing: Feminism, Body Image, and Women's Issues." (Stray comment: I once again find myself irked by this kind of use of the word "Issues." I notice people, more usually women, use this word to cover up having nothing direct to say, to be deliberately ambivalent, to inflate their own self-importance by implying the matter at hand is big and complex.)

    - She is bluecheckmarked on Twitter as @iproposethis.

    She is nice looking and her husband sounds like a decent man and involved father. So why is she doubling down on the misery inducing zeitgeist?

    I think in the 70s and 80s a shift in encouraging girls to be second rate boys began because smaller families meant fewer sons. Fathers of daughters only felt a need to channel their wishes and hopes for boys onto the shoulders of girls .

    It's so obvious that it isn't even true. Not everything bad in the world is Jewish. Jews are a small minority in America. They form a disproportionate % of leftist idiots but even if they are over-represented by a factor of ten, they can still only account for maybe 20% or 25% of leftist idiots. That leaves 80% (like Schroeder) who aren't.

    “Not everything bad in the world is Jewish. Jews are a small minority in America. They form a disproportionate % of leftist idiots but even if they are over-represented by a factor of ten, they can still only account for maybe 20% or 25% of leftist idiots. ”

    There’s over-representation, then there is running the show.

    Not all feminists are Jewish, but almost all famous influential feminists are Jewish.

    Jews even control most of the non-MSM left and right wing media. Rebel Media, Blaze, ZMag, Common Dreams, etc.

    No one would care if they were merely over-represented, the fact is that there are almost no political organizations, media outlets, governments, labour unions (etc) that aren’t under Jewish control.

    stukach

    n. (from Russian) An informer. One who turns in one's friends, family, and neighbours to the secret police, usually for a reward or advantage. It is considered one of the foulest insults in the Russian language.

    Anyone who would drop a dime on his friends is a slimy stukach.

    For extra punch say “yobanyi stukach” (ёбаный стукач). The common treatment suggested for these is to snuff them in an outhouse (mochit’ v sortire, мочить в сортире).

    Learning Russian equips you for the coming New Brave Amerika!

    “non-paternity” was always common except that the fathers never knew it.
     
    Not according to the latest, 2010s-era studies I've seen. They compared paper genealogy and genetic testing for NW-European Whites. The results suggest the overall rate of cheat-and-conceive were as low as 1% of conceptions. Not common.

    That means: Zero cases of cheated-and-conceived in the average person's family tree back six generations. A very long time.

    Not common among a subset of inner Hajnal line people. Do you know what “sample error” is?

    She also lists Jordan Peterson as a Gateway to Nazism, whereas AFAICS he seems to have more the opposite effect, and is hated by the Alt-Right at least as much as by the Totalitarian Left.

    I think 'red pilling' tends to start with a realisation that one is being lied to by the dominant culture on factual matters like crime rates & IQ. I don't see that either PragerU or Jordan Peterson are generally guilty of this sin, but something like The Bell Curve can lead to detachment from The Narrative. For the kids, I'd think it's all about the Memes, and rejection of the Totalitarian Nanny Statism - it's easy to reject an ideology that hates you and wants you to die. At that point people are unmoored, and I think she's right that Youtube algorithmns can lead to a down-the-rabbit-hole effect.

    Maybe people dislike Jordan “Benzos” Peterson because they notice what’s going on and Peterson tells you to be an atomized individual who just takes it, while everyone else tribes up against you. PragerU on the other hand is just pure shilling for the interests of a foreign population group who do things that are not in your best, long-term interests if you are white. Youtube algorithms (used to) lead you to people who give you a full big picture view. Now they just ban wrongthinkers at random for 100% legal political speech.

    Also Greeks, English, etc. Egypt is a much more boring (and dumber) place now than it was when it was diverse. Having a mono-culture doesn't mean the end of conflict either. The idea that you are going to solve your society's problems thru ethnic cleansing is a pipe dream.

    Maybe it wasn’t “diversity” for diversity’s sake that made the Egypt of yesteryear interesting and intelligent than the Egypt of today. Hell, the Caucasus mountains are “diverse” in the aggregate but most people seem far more interested in visiting Armenia and Georgia than in visiting Chechnya or Dagestan, even though the latter is considered ethnically very diverse (and certainly more so than Armenia or Georgia). Rhetorical question: why do you think that is?

    That Islamic and Arabic cultures tend to grow into less pleasant, prosperous, interesting and intelligent societies than Christian and European ones isn’t very politically correct but there’s no way around it.

    Similar dynamics can apply to Detroit, MI and Barnstable County, MA. Large swaths of each are quite racially homogeneous. One of them appears to have been much more desirable in recent decades than the other. Which is it? Why?
