If only Berkeley Latinx Studies major Pablo “They” Gomez could be there to fan the flames …

Evidently, some people like violence against women:

The first Latino mayor of Berkeley encouraged the rioters on Twitter yesterday:

Heckuva job, Mayorie!

And now the antifas are running amok smashing up Berkeley businesses:

Note that the criminals aren’t necessarily Berkeley students.

A Starbucks was ransacked. Oh the irony. Do you think Howard Schultz ever has any doubts?

By the way, if you are wondering why all the antifas are wearing masks, it’s no doubt because of the bitter cold and driving wind of a California February:

Admittedly, the other possibility is that they wear masks so that they can beat people with impunity:

Why is it legal to wear a mask to a riot?

In contrast to what happens when Milo tries to speak at Berkeley, famous for the Free Speech Movement of 1964, here’s the kind of intolerance we see when Bernie Sanders speaks at the Falwell family’s Liberty U.:

Seriously, what % of the political violence in the U.S. over the last 18 months has been from Trump’s side of the spectrum and what % from the respectable side?

5% vs. 95%?

2% vs. 98%?

I resist the 1% vs. 99% ratio as improbable (although, admittedly, possible).

Here’s the beginning of the NYT coverage:

Speech by Milo Yiannopoulos Is Canceled Amid Protests at Berkeley
By CHRISTOPHER MELE FEB. 1, 2017

A speech by the divisive right-wing editor Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley, was canceled on Wednesday night after demonstrators set fires and threw objects at buildings to protest his appearance.

The university announced the cancellation on Twitter around 9:15 p.m., about an hour after a section of the campus erupted in protest. There were no immediate reports of arrests or injuries.

Nothing to see here, folks, just move along.

Update: As of 7 am EST, the word “Berkeley” does not appear anywhere on the NYTimes.com home page.

Problem solved!

And then the Twitterer-in-Chief weighed in:

Screenshot 2017-02-02 03.25.26

How expensive would that it be for Berkeley to maintain it’s policy of accommodating violence against free speech?

Each year, the UC Berkeley campus receives well over half a billion dollars in research and other support from external sources. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, UC Berkeley attracted $673.9 million in new awards. Many of these awards fund multiyear research projects and support expenditures that will be reflected in subsequent years. The federal government provided 55 percent of these funds, and California state agencies and other government sources, industry, and the nonprofit sector supplied the rest. Of the research funding provided by the U.S. government, the largest contributors are the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

But that’s not counting federally-subsidized student loans …

  3. The interesting thing is that the heckler’s veto stratagem is employed by the administration and faculty a priori – they charge the speaker for the extra security to discourage the speech and then challenge the rioters to force cancellation by presenting a security threat in excess of the capacity of the security detail (assuming in such case it’s been paid for by the speaker). There is a definite pattern to these things.

    Of course, if Trump’s eventual DOE Secretary put their Federal funding in jeopardy for suppressing speech, he’d be the fascist.

Outside of these safe areas, there is ideological anarchy and ordinary people do crazy s–t like putting a populist businessmen in the White House or taking their country out of the EU. And the more violent and histrionic leftists act, the more ordinary people do crazy, politically incorrect things.

    No STEM students were involved in this I can tell you that now. They act so different, almost like they aren’t constantly propagandised to in a fashion they must regurgitate in order to pass their exams. They also probably have much better impulse control and less need for exhibitionism. To be fair since these were black blok types, they most likely don’t even go to Berkeley, but live close enough to organise a nice recreational riot.

    Trump’s administration is following Steve Bannon’s motto: “the honey badger don’t give a s___”

    The left just can’t fathom losing and that their protest tactics aren’t going to give them what they want. And it’s not just students, the left wing media and left wing congressmen are acting like babies. They will fail in humiliation. Trump is sparking a genuine global culture shift.

    Bravo Trump and Bannon, Bravo!!!

    BTW, my math professor mass emailed students with anti-Trump message. University has dropped pretense of political neutrality.

    Notice how Google’s Sergey Brin said, “it’s important to not frame this debate as being liberal versus republican and so forth. It’s a debate about fundamental values , about thoughtful policymaking”. He is literally saying that it’s important not to frame immigration as an issue with two sides, but with only one morally acceptable side. I wonder how Google deals with internal dissent.

    Google was one of the first American companies to sell out Chinese dissidents and collude with Bush and Obama administrations to illegally gather metadata on Americans and read their emails, and engage in corporate espionage, etc. Google Maps is nothing more than a wet dream of the NRO,

    And why do the founders of Google allowed to park their private 767 at a military base? They had to cut some sort of very ugly back room deal for basing rights like that.

    Lets not forget they're a sweatshop operation as well. Importing boatloads of H-1B workers for the grunt work.

    The left are used to using childish protest tactics to get whatever they want. They are used to university administrators or political opponents curling up into a fetal position after a few protests.

    Trump's administration is following Steve Bannon's motto: "the honey badger don't give a s___"

    The left just can't fathom losing and that their protest tactics aren't going to give them what they want. And it's not just students, the left wing media and left wing congressmen are acting like babies. They will fail in humiliation. Trump is sparking a genuine global culture shift.

    Bravo Trump and Bannon, Bravo!!!

    BTW, my math professor mass emailed students with anti-Trump message. University has dropped pretense of political neutrality.

    Notice how Google's Sergey Brin said, "it’s important to not frame this debate as being liberal versus republican and so forth. It’s a debate about fundamental values , about thoughtful policymaking". He is literally saying that it's important not to frame immigration as an issue with two sides, but with only one morally acceptable side. I wonder how Google deals with internal dissent. I know many Google employees are alt right types. And Google has no obligation to tolerate political dissent but it will make them look terrible if they don't.

    Google is staffed by globalists, sociopaths and stooges. So what if they have high IQ’s but are moral monsters otherwise. Silicon Valley is full of them.

    Google was one of the first American companies to sell out Chinese dissidents and collude with Bush and Obama administrations to illegally gather metadata on Americans and read their emails, and engage in corporate espionage, etc. Google Maps is nothing more than a wet dream of the NRO,

    And why do the founders of Google allowed to park their private 767 at a military base? They had to cut some sort of very ugly back room deal for basing rights like that.

    Lets not forget they’re a sweatshop operation as well. Importing boatloads of H-1B workers for the grunt work.

Some years ago I read an article that it was a very old tradition (going back several hundred years in Anglo-Saxon history) for the authorities, when faced with a riot, to let it rage for about three days before starting serious police or military action against the rioters.

    There were two reasons for this. One, it’s easier to round up rioters and kick their butts when they’ve begun to run out of steam. Second, after three days’ worth of anarchy, a bloodthirsty citizenry who had been cheering the rioters on would start suffering damage to their own property, and they’d do an about face and support the cops, which meant the police would not be punished if they had to take harsh measures to stop the rioters, such as gunning them down en masse.

    Media, infected with the neurosis of the Tribe, promoted Obama as new jesus and then vilified Trump as ‘literally hitler’. For 8 yrs under Obama, there was soft-peddling of the phoniest president in US history. And the media covered up real problems like black crime by labels the thugs ‘teens’ and ‘youths’. Meanwhile, every Hate Hoax about KKK and white supremacists have been hyped sky-high.

    Also, while far-right ideology has long been censured and condemned by the media, the violent culture of rap music and anarcho-terrorist culture have been glorified and romanticized. Since young ones, especially males are high on hormonal thug instinct, they seek outlet for their aggression. Those who can make it in sports expend their energies through ball-play(and balling the sluts on campus). For males who don’t make the team or lack ‘big man on campus status’, there is the culture of rock concerts and radical politics. Since rightist politics have been censured and prohibited among youths, a lot of young males channel their male aggression through underground rock culture that is associated with antifa and anarchist strains. Most antifa types didn’t get ideology through books and study. They got it through rock/punk/rap scene. They were more likely converted into the movement by Matrix movies, Rage Against Machine, Public Enemy, the Clash, or articles in Rolling Stone magazine.
    And the real animating force behind their lunacy isn’t much different from Alex and his droogs in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. They need outlets for their young male energy.

    Honest ones join street gangs. But middle class kids want to justify their thuggery, so they seek ideology. Likewise, the main reason for some kids joining skinhead gangs had less to do with ideology that frustrated longing for excitement and action.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWLByMshYIU

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFruWxzcYpo

    Since radical rightist politics is pretty much forbidden, the only permissible outlet is the anarchist and antifa strains of violence. Also, even though all violence is officially illegal, there is no moral, political, and ideological censure of much of bad behavior by blacks and proglodytes.

    [MORE]

    If a bunch of far-right thugs went on a rampage, the media would foam at the mouth, Democrats would condemn it, and even Republicans would condemn it. There would be loud sermons about ‘hate crimes’.
    But when antifa goes nuts, the media just report it neutrally, the Democrats either remain silent or give tacit support(like Obama and Hillary did for race riots after Ferguson), and Republicans say nothing. Even Trump wont say anything about Berkeley,and he hardly said anything to condemn antifa violence against his supporters in 2016. Thus, white patriots are treated like Palestinians in Israel.

    Anyway, the media have spread the message that Trump is hitler, Putin is hitler, and ‘Muslim ban’ is WWII and Holocaust all over again, and etc. And given that pop culture and celebrity mania are the dominant culture for many young people, the entertainment industry freakouts about Trump infects them too.

    The media also gave green light to ‘punch nazis’ after Spencer got clocked. There was no condemnation, and even Conservatives said nothing. So, the national consensus is now that it is OKAY, even cool, to attack ‘nazis’ who could be any Trump supporter.
    Indeed, the Tribe in the media are especially angry over the Trump victory because the anti-Trump violence failed to cower the will of Trump voters. Almost all the political violence in 2016 was anti-Trump, and the media hardly condemned it. Media didn’t even cover much of it. Anyway, the message that Trump-supporters were supposed to take from the violence was that they better not even dare to vote for Trump because they are deplorables who deserve an ass-whupping. But the deplorables voted for Trump anyway. The Tribe is furious at such uppity behavior.

    It’s rather odd. The media are trying to send a message not unlike the editorial of a newspaper after Jack Johnson defeated the great white hope. The paper told the Negroes not to get uppity or boastful about the victory.
    I think the Tribal Media are sending the same message. Spencer got punched on Inauguration day. The media more or less endorsed it and celebrated it, and in doing so, sent out a missive to all young exasperated progs to punch a nazi to send a message to white patriots NOT TO GET TOO COCKY OR UPPITY. DON’T GET TOO PROUD. This goes to show that white folks have become the ‘new negroes’ who are expected to be shuffling uncle tom before the Tribal Massuh. “Don’t git uppity just because Trump run.” And antifa is used as overseers to whip white folks into shape. Shut up and pick some cotton. The Tribe sees this as a Slave Rebellion.

    While there would have some unrest regardless of the nature of media coverage, there is no doubt that the anti-Trump media coverage in 2016 was the most hysterical ever.
    It was rabid, extreme, and crazy. The narrative received by the urban and radical young was that Trump is ‘literally hitler’ and his supporters are ‘nazis’. Trump is trying to restore simple law and order in immigration policy, but this is WWII all over again for those who’ve come under media spell. Snowflakes turned into hailstorms as this most easily triggered generation have been spoonfed on the bitter medicine that they are now living in Neo-Nazi-land.

    And then, there is the power of academia. We know that academia have been totally taken over by Progs. Indeed, they worked politically and systemically to recruit and promote only their ideological brethren and sistren. This happened for 30-40 yrs, and the result is the academia has become the incestuous hotbed of dogmatic thinking and PC lunacies. Safe in their own ideological bubble, ideologues never had to deal with reality. They had this fixed view of the world where the ‘progressives’ are struggling nobly against Nazis and KKK and Haven Monahans. Much of it was shaped by the paranoia of the Tribe that served as professors who would concoct PC and notions such as ‘hate speech’ that came to encompass more and more speech. (In Canada, even the failure to address some tranny as ‘ze’ can be constituted as ‘hate speech’.)
    But what if there is no Hitler? Okay, pretend Trump is Hitler. What if there is no KKK? Pretend blankets and science labs are associated with KKK. What if there are no nazis on campus? Well, any Trump supporter is a ‘nazi’. Since young ones are stupid and gullible — and hungry for a self-righteous view of the world where they are ‘good’ joined against ‘evil’ — , they’ve latched onto this cartoon vision of reality. Since their worldview depends on combating Hitler, Nazis, and KKK, they must turn their enemies into such caricatures to feel justified. It’s Justice Pornography. At some point, Progressivism loses its main themes(some by victory and some by failure), and it turns regressive into childhood fantasies of cops and robbers. It’s sort of like what happens in the movie REGRESSION where people begin to hallucinate stuff because a certain narrative and idea begin to infect their minds. It’s also sort of what happens to the character in Mamet’s HOMICIDE. His awareness of existence of antisemitism makes him imagine much more, far beyond reality. He even surmises that a Jewish shop-owner was killed by some vast neo-nazi conspiracy when it turns out that she was killed by neighborhood negro hoods.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pBwIsVGaL4

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRrVHErtFo4

    Also, the rise of Trump finally permits some masculine element to reassert itself among the progs. During Obama, the progs couldn’t get worked up into militant mode, so things got soft and trannies & 50 gender pansies took the limelight.
    But now that the message is NAZIS RULE THE US, the pansies are being pushed to the back while the macho thug force are emerging as the vanguard. And violence is their forte since, in any sound, factual, and rational debate on just about any issue, the Alt Right will mop the floor with them. Alt Right has the advantage of having no use for censorious PC. In contrast, antifa must stick to PC formula, much like Mao’s Red Guards. They can only yammer in slogans and cliches, and this makes them sound stupid when matched with real reason and facts. All they can do is shout ‘nazi’, ‘racist’, fascist’, etc.

    The alliance of Western academia and Big business is not unlike the alliance between Wahabi and Saudi Royal Family. The Royal Family is very rich, very corrupt, very materialistic, and totally venal. So, they are vulnerable to moral and spiritual condemnation. To shield themselves from such opprobrium — that eventually brought down the Shah — , they formed a partnership with the Wahahi sect. This way, the Royal family would lavishly fund the Sect, its mosques, its missions. In return, the Wahabis would bless the family and shower it with praise. Thus, the Royal family would be shielded from the potential moral and spiritual outrage among the masses.

    Something similar happened in the West since May 68 movement. As the capitalist class came under increasing attack from the Left, it had to find a way to ameliorate the Left and win it over. Capitalists may have appreciated support from conservatives, but why pay for something you can get for free? The real danger came from the Left that dominated media and especially academia. The rich class may have all the money, but culture and values are determined by the intellectual class in academia and media. The boomer enterprisers who went for money knew of the boomer radicals who were taking over the institutions. So, a kind of symbiotic relationship had to be forged. The rich class would fund the Left on grounds that the main leftist ire would be directed at anyone but the rich class.
    And that was essentially the formula of Clintonism where the rich class were allowed to rake in more and more as long as they funded the ‘left’. This had a corrupting effect on the Left in the same way that Royal Family money had a corrupting effect on the Wahabi sect that has become entrenched and privileged. So, Wahabis may fund and cause trouble anywhere but NOT in the domain of the Royal Family. Likewise, the pact between the rich class and the Left means that the Left, in taking money from the likes of Soros and Wall Street, must take their rage out on ‘racists’, ‘homophobes’, ‘fascists’, and ‘nazis’ who could be any ordinary Joe with a maga hat. This way, the Left became the main enemy of the white working class and the tool of globalist elites.

    But then, all this anti-Muslim hostility on the Right is to miss the point. In the EU, yes, Muslims are a serious problem. In the US, the real enemies of the patriots are not the ‘muzzies’.

    Blaming Jews really doesn't make sense:

    The progressives pushing anti-white, mass immigration ideology are very divided on Israel. The Obama administration was hostile to the idea of Israel as an ethnic state that actively defends its ethnic identity and excludes others. Many progressive Jews, like Jon Stewart, seem hostile to the idea of Israel as an ethnic nation state. Mainstream Democrats are very divided on the issue.

    The political left in Europe, even among whites, is more overtly anti-Jewish. Jeremy Corbyn has very real ties to anti-semitism.

    Donald Trump isn't remotely anti-semitic. The leftist press is calling him anti-semitic over and over, but the charge is completely absurd. His daughter has embraced the Jewish identity and raises several of his grandkids as full Jews. He has Jews on his team in senior posts. He's very friendly towards Israel. Stephen Bannon helped make Ben Shapiro a popular political writer. To call him anti-semitic is just absurd.

    Barack Obama and Angela Merkel and many other leaders of the progressive tribe on the issue of race and multiculturalism are not Jewish.

    2. Donald Trump, with Bannon and Miller as support, is our best hope for limiting immigration, for holding onto this territory against the 7 billion people in the rest of the world who would gladly take it from us. And this may well be our last chance.

    3. Spencer's associating himself with Trump or with Miller or Bannon hurts their political standing. It therefore hurts their chances at protecting us and our borders. It puts us in danger. So Spencer is putting the common goal at risk and endangering the rest of us.

    You may think it's unfair that Spencer's words and deeds are portrayed by the media or seen by this society in a negative light. Well, this administration as presently constituted has maybe 90 days to sink or swim. Even if you were right, you aren't going to change minds against the MSM in 90 days or before the 2018 midterms or probably before 2020. And in any case, most of us see no appeal in or imperative to "ethnic cleansing" (even if peaceful) or "transfer" or establishing the legitimacy of Nazi era motifs.

    If you are concerned about White survival, first control the borders, see #1 above, and, as Uncle Hotep has advised, have babies.

    Spencer is a liability. A good teammate who has become a liability removes himself from the game. Spencer on the other hand keeps making things worse.

    This isn't foremost about whether Spencer had made a sacrifice or is a good guy or is morally right or well intentioned. It doesn't even have to be about blame. I just want him to quit screwing us over. And I want him to quit screwing over Trump and Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon, guys who have actually put themselves on the line and accomplished something for the American people.

    The fact that the left is going straight to violence and street protests and is ignoring legal remedies such as battling Trump in the courts indicates that a sinister collusion between Soros-type funding of street thugs and the media is taking place. A guy like Soros wants a genuine violent overthrow of the Trump government. Soros isn't an American, and he doesn't understand our political traditions. There has never been a coup in American politics, though he obviously wants one.

    The media wants clickbait that makes enough advertising revenue to pay their own salaries, and they also want to create a new generation of devoted, brainwashed, mindless sheep. This new generation of reporters sees themselves a priesthood that has displaced Christianity, and they consider themselves to be the only proper moral arbiters who are left. This is why they're so hostile to Christianity. If Christianity had a resurgence, it would disempower 'the Reportagers.' The conflict between the two is much like the fight that took place between the Catholics and Protestants in the Middle Ages, or the Sunnis and Shias today.

    When the people ignore them, the media go bananas and try any immoral and/or illegal trick to gain attention and authority again, and they see themselves as fully justified no matter what they do. They burn with righteous moral fervor. The means justify the ends. Psychologically speaking, they think it's the end of the world when no one listens to them pontificate.

    I agree that Spencer is a liability but my understanding is that Spencer did not hold his current views in 2009. I believe that he was a PaleoCon back then. Spencer used to work at American Conservative.

    Spencer's popularity has risen because the media has given him popularity in trying to associate him with Trump, Bannon and Miller. They are all civic nationalists. Spencer has very limited resources as well but knows how to leverage them pretty well.

    I think civic nationalism will grow in the next few years. However, Spencer will start to wane. But yes, he should keep quiet regarding any of his relationships.

    Spencer didn't make me vote for Trump, though and I don't know how much he would have really been able to accomplish as overt as he was. He's moved the Overton Window to the right - which is great - but by association, he is harming the brand of Trump.

Do you realize how paranoid and ridiculous and weak that sounds?

    In the damn article you speedread, cut and pasted and misrepresented Richard was actually trying to distance himself from Miller and set the record straight-- not that I have any idea why you care about Miller so much since he is chiefly a speechwriter and Bannon and Conway are the asskickers doing the actual fighting alongside Trump.

    Trump and Miller have "disavowed" Nazi Richard. Bannon hasn't yet but I'm sure he will if asked. They tried the guilt-by-association crap through the ENTIRE campaign (with David "Satan" Duke et al.) and no one cared. Trump won. He is president now. Why not let a man advocate for our race instead of spending half of your waking hours stalking and trolling him? If you haven't noticed, we're kind of on the edge of a civil war with psychotics who want our people dead-- and newsflash they can't tell the difference between Trump, Gay Jew MILO, Richard Spencer, Andrew Anglin, Mike Pence, or any White male who can't be mistaken for a woman for that matter.

    We have to raise White consciousness. We have to inspire White identity. Richard Spencer is doing his job and Trump is doing his. QUIT SHOOTING AT YOUR OWN PEOPLE. THE ENEMY WILL DO THAT FOR YOU.

    Shouldn’t someone of your persuasion, white nationalist, want a civil war? There is not another way to spark “consciousness” and “white race solidarity.”

    To me, that is a harmful understanding of America. There are quite a few non-whites who want to buy into making our country great again. Excluding people on your side because of your identity obsession is foolish.

    There are also quite a few whites who we need to dump into the same place where MH-370 went. See the Berkley protests.

    President Trump should threaten to refuse federal funds to the entire California state university system until Berkeley moves to thoroughly investigate and ask for prosecution of at least some of the perpetrators of the violence, because not prosecuting them would be an injustice based on upper-middle class (white) privilege, as the same behaviour in by minorities or lower class citizens would never be tolerated.

These Koreans need to learn what a double envelopment is. Do a Cannae on the protesters and surround them, and start grabbing the rioters on the outside of the the circle and yank them away one at a time and hand them over to arresting officers, and keep squeezing the circle inwards tighter and tighter until everyone's been arrested and led off in handcuffs.

    A California succession would only be a temporary fix. If they leave, they'll turn the entire state into one big Detroit where nothing works, and everyone, black, Hispanic, and white, will be trying to leave and enter the US again because that's where all the good jobs, sensible government, low taxes, law and order, etc., will be.

    But the problem with this is that California has a damned long border with the US. We've already got a huge problem with a long border between us and Mexico that needs to be guarded. Add on a California border that also needs a fence and military-style policing between itself and Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon, and we'll have more territory to cover than we can handle. We won't be able to do it. If California does leave, we need to do everything we can to break up the state and keep the Central Valley (for its produce) and the Northern part of the state, at the very least.

    Frankly, we should have kept going in 1848 and conquered all of Mexico all the way down to Panama, then kicked out the natives and exiled them to South America. The small choke point of Panama would have been much easier to control as a border, tactically speaking.

    This California secession talk is just some meme being used ironically to let off steam by progs butt-hurt by the Trump win.

Without California, in the last election Trump would have had almost twice as many EC votes as Hillary

  96. JerseyGuy says:
    @Opinionator
    We're trying to get results, Amasius. Here's the deal:

    1. We all want to limit immigration. It is a major priority. In your last post to me, which I have been meaning to reply to, you indicated that you shared that goal. If memory serves, it was in fact the only specific policy objective you have articulated.

    2. Donald Trump, with Bannon and Miller as support, is our best hope for limiting immigration, for holding onto this territory against the 7 billion people in the rest of the world who would gladly take it from us. And this may well be our last chance.

    3. Spencer's associating himself with Trump or with Miller or Bannon hurts their political standing. It therefore hurts their chances at protecting us and our borders. It puts us in danger. So Spencer is putting the common goal at risk and endangering the rest of us.

    You may think it's unfair that Spencer's words and deeds are portrayed by the media or seen by this society in a negative light. Well, this administration as presently constituted has maybe 90 days to sink or swim. Even if you were right, you aren't going to change minds against the MSM in 90 days or before the 2018 midterms or probably before 2020. And in any case, most of us see no appeal in or imperative to "ethnic cleansing" (even if peaceful) or "transfer" or establishing the legitimacy of Nazi era motifs. (We have real policy goals in our sights.) Spencer screwed the pooch on that stuff. The best thing he can do is hold a presser and clarify once and for all. Expulsion of US citizens is a nonstarter.

    If you are concerned about White survival, first control the borders, see #1 above, and, as Uncle Hotep has advised, have babies.

    Spencer is a liability. A good teammate who has become a liability removes himself from the game. Spencer on the other hand keeps making things worse.

    This isn't foremost about whether Spencer had made a sacrifice or is a good guy or is morally right or well intentioned. It doesn't even have to be about blame. I just want him to quit screwing us over. And I want him to quit screwing over Trump and Stephen Miller and Steve Bannon, guys who have actually put themselves on the line and accomplished something for the American people.

    But I will say this: someone who makes repeated mistakes, when he should know better, and puts the group in danger, does lose the moral high ground. He remains a liability and becomes something worse.

    I agree that Spencer is a liability but my understanding is that Spencer did not hold his current views in 2009. I believe that he was a PaleoCon back then. Spencer used to work at American Conservative.

    Spencer’s popularity has risen because the media has given him popularity in trying to associate him with Trump, Bannon and Miller. They are all civic nationalists. Spencer has very limited resources as well but knows how to leverage them pretty well.

    I think civic nationalism will grow in the next few years. However, Spencer will start to wane. But yes, he should keep quiet regarding any of his relationships.

  97. This comment would have been better off written back a week or two about the wearing of masks in general, but I vehemently disagree with you, Steve, on this issue. Prohibiting the wearing of masks is more police-state-like than we the state we are at already – with the surveillance we are under now, especially cities (but who knows soon? could be worse than in 1984 very shortly), that’s the only way to stay anonymous.

    This is the reason I state that conservatives could learn something from libertarians. In terms of crime, this rioting, and such things, yeah, the anonymity makes it harder on the people in the right. However, this can and will be used against the right at any time in the future.

    The real solution to this will come; it’s just gonna be a little further down the road, when some alt-right, conservative, young single men realize they don’t have much to lose anymore. The economy is in for a downfall no matter the best intentions/actions of President Trump. Some of the guys on our side WILL get out the 2×4′s and more potent weapons and THEIR MASKS and wreak havoc on this crowd. First things have got to get to the point where being arrested is just not the stigma it used to be – kinda like going back to the 60′s, but without as much free sex (unfortunately).

    Brimelow is right – it’s gonna come to blood – nobody (should) want civil war if he’s ever seen people killed or receiving real trauma, but hopefully these people can be taught a lesson they won’t forget, and they will quit signing up to these Soros contract jobs (at least without hazard pay).

    No STEM students were involved in this I can tell you that now. They act so different, almost like they aren't constantly propagandised to in a fashion they must regurgitate in order to pass their exams. They also probably have much better impulse control and less need for exhibitionism.

    Still, they have people who agree with us – possibly even a decent percentage. Although they can’t do anything within the company, they may be able to do something on the sly to break the hegemony of evil that now dominates our world.

    We have to raise White consciousness. We have to inspire White identity. Richard Spencer is doing his job and Trump is doing his. QUIT SHOOTING AT YOUR OWN PEOPLE. THE ENEMY WILL DO THAT FOR YOU.

    Spencer didn’t make me vote for Trump, though and I don’t know how much he would have really been able to accomplish as overt as he was. He’s moved the Overton Window to the right – which is great – but by association, he is harming the brand of Trump.

    People need to stop accepting Californian secession. If California votes to leave the US, it will mostly be thanks to the 10-20 million people now living there who are either immigrants or the children of. If they vote to leave the only proper response is to invade, drive out the immigrants, and reclaim it for America. Like hell are we going to let these people steal it from us.

    No invasion needed. Eff them, they can’t sustain their debt as it is, let them be to collapse. Enforce the borders, keep them from stealing water, and watch how quickly they turn into a third world and then their Latinx they can fight it out with the Blood and the Crips.

    OT: Finally we know the perpetrators of a vicious “hate crime” in Ashburn, VA, although many of us had guessed from the outset after reading that the NAACP had asked the prosecutor to go lightly on the “irresponsible” teenagers.

    Five juveniles confess to vandalizing historic African American schoolhouse in Ashburn

    “It became very apparent to us as we reviewed the facts, and their statements to detectives, that these kids truly did not appreciate the significance or the meaning of what they were drawing on the building. It also became obvious to us that their motivations had nothing to do with bigotry or hatred toward any class of people,” said Commonwealth’s Attorney Jim Plowman (R) in a prepared statement.

    According to the commonwealth’s attorney, of the five youths, three are of a minority class. The drawings on the building consisted of swastikas, dinosaurs, vulgar sexual images and words such as ‘brown power and ‘white power.’

    “Because of this, we are seizing the opportunity to treat this as an educational experience for these young men so they may better appreciate the significance of their actions and the impact this type of behavior has on communities and has had throughout history,” Plowman said.

    During their probationary period, the five will each be required to visit the United States Holocaust Museum and “The Day of Remembrance: The 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066” exhibit at the American History Museum. They will also be required to write one book report per month for the next 12 months from an approved list provided to them (see below). None of the reports may be substituted for a regular school assignment. Books were chosen based on their literary significance and/or their subject matter content surrounding race, religion and discrimination.

    The teens will also be required to write a research paper explaining the message that swastikas and white power messages on African American schools or houses of worship send to the African American community as well as the broader community, which includes other minority groups. The research paper must reference and include the history of the KKK lynchings, the Nazi “final solution,” the Dred Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education court decisions.

    Lastly, each teen must listen to a recorded interview of Ms. Yvonne Neal, describing her experiences at the Ashburn Colored School. Ms. Neal attended the Ashburn Colored School from 1938 until 1945.

    The cases are set to be reviewed in January 2018.”

    http://www.loudountimes.com/news/article/five_juveniles_confess_to_vandalizing_historic_african_american543

    Let’s see. Since it was Blacks vandalizing a historic Black school, this cannot be a “hate crime” because it is not reasonable to hate yourself. However, my wife sees this differently: This was a “hate crime” since the goal of the “fake” desecration was to incite Blacks to hate Whites. Makes sense to me.

    Oh, wait! The punishment for Black teenagers vandalizing a historic Black school appears to require them to bone up on how evil White people are … the KKK, Nazis, the Holocaust, slavery, and segregation. Damn, at the end of the day, the teenagers might come to feel empowered by what they did in trying to ferment hate against Whites. Whites deserved it!

    There is something odd going on. The level of organized protest, and MSM complaining, is unusual in its intensity and duration. Was it like this during Watergate or the Vietnam War?

    It is as if we are being prepared for something. An assassination or a color revolution.

    The fact that the left is going straight to violence and street protests and is ignoring legal remedies such as battling Trump in the courts indicates that a sinister collusion between Soros-type funding of street thugs and the media is taking place. A guy like Soros wants a genuine violent overthrow of the Trump government. Soros isn’t an American, and he doesn’t understand our political traditions. There has never been a coup in American politics, though he obviously wants one.

    The media wants clickbait that makes enough advertising revenue to pay their own salaries, and they also want to create a new generation of devoted, brainwashed, mindless sheep. This new generation of reporters sees themselves a priesthood that has displaced Christianity, and they consider themselves to be the only proper moral arbiters who are left. This is why they’re so hostile to Christianity. If Christianity had a resurgence, it would disempower ‘the Reportagers.’ The conflict between the two is much like the fight that took place between the Catholics and Protestants in the Middle Ages, or the Sunnis and Shias today.

    When the people ignore them, the media go bananas and try any immoral and/or illegal trick to gain attention and authority again, and they see themselves as fully justified no matter what they do. They burn with righteous moral fervor. The means justify the ends. Psychologically speaking, they think it’s the end of the world when no one listens to them pontificate.

    A California succession would only be a temporary fix. If they leave, they’ll turn the entire state into one big Detroit where nothing works, and everyone, black, Hispanic, and white, will be trying to leave and enter the US again because that’s where all the good jobs, sensible government, low taxes, law and order, etc., will be.

    But the problem with this is that California has a damned long border with the US. We’ve already got a huge problem with a long border between us and Mexico that needs to be guarded. Add on a California border that also needs a fence and military-style policing between itself and Nevada, Arizona, and Oregon, and we’ll have more territory to cover than we can handle. We won’t be able to do it. If California does leave, we need to do everything we can to break up the state and keep the Central Valley (for its produce) and the Northern part of the state, at the very least.

    Frankly, we should have kept going in 1848 and conquered all of Mexico all the way down to Panama, then kicked out the natives and exiled them to South America. The small choke point of Panama would have been much easier to control as a border, tactically speaking.

    Blaming Jews really doesn’t make sense:

    The progressives pushing anti-white, mass immigration ideology are very divided on Israel. The Obama administration was hostile to the idea of Israel as an ethnic state that actively defends its ethnic identity and excludes others. Many progressive Jews, like Jon Stewart, seem hostile to the idea of Israel as an ethnic nation state. Mainstream Democrats are very divided on the issue.

    The political left in Europe, even among whites, is more overtly anti-Jewish. Jeremy Corbyn has very real ties to anti-semitism.

    Donald Trump isn’t remotely anti-semitic. The leftist press is calling him anti-semitic over and over, but the charge is completely absurd. His daughter has embraced the Jewish identity and raises several of his grandkids as full Jews. He has Jews on his team in senior posts. He’s very friendly towards Israel. Stephen Bannon helped make Ben Shapiro a popular political writer. To call him anti-semitic is just absurd.

    This California secession talk is just some meme being used ironically to let off steam by progs butt-hurt by the Trump win. There is no popular movement for it and none of the progs I know personally have any interest in leaving the Union. They all know that it would hurt economically, and even more importantly, destroy their ability to influence the rest of the US.

Without California, in the last election Trump would have had almost twice as many EC votes as Hillary

    Where to start? The late Mendel Tabadznik, South Africa's foremost Yiddish writer, had a son David - man with decidedly bushy eyebrows - who founded a dodgy chain of psychiatric hospitals where bad things happened. Later he started making pills with his son Tony and the two became wealthier still.
    In the nineties pere et fils were active on the London philanthropic scene with frequent mentions in the Jewish Chronicle, such as when they founded the 'Oxford Institute for Yiddish Studies.'

    Its the Right that valorizes heroism, because our systems are built off the notion that a man can sacrifice his life for a greater cause, his line secure with his children and wife, and the overall sense of an societal unit that glorifies sacrifice and duty in things small and great.

    The Left, on the other hand, glorifies the individual so they can only act in concert through mobbing and sheer emotionally driven herd behavior. Courage really isn't a term used by the left, not in any meaningful way. Theirs is a courage without sacrifice, basically, and emotional distress is the greatest harm they can countenance to bear.

It’s a debate about fundamental values , about thoughtful policymaking". He is literally saying that it's important not to frame immigration as an issue with two sides, but with only one morally acceptable side. I wonder how Google deals with internal dissent. I know many Google employees are alt right types. And Google has no obligation to tolerate political dissent but it will make them look terrible if they don't.

    Under California’s Labor Code, it’s illegal to fire employees for certain political reasons.

    That's only superficially enforceable. If Google wants to fire someone, they can find a way. And even if they don't fire you, managers have power to make your work life unpleasant. Honestly, I wouldn't even consider protest my viewpoint in the workplace like that. I'm paid to build software, and I want to give them the best. I love my bosses.

    I'm in my late 20s and I do Brazilian jiu jitsu and boxing at my local Mma gym. I t costs me around 90 bucks a month to go to around 3 or 4 classes a week where we learn one or two moves and then wrestle on mats or spar for an hour or so.

    I'm honestly not that good at it but I'd highly recommend doing that then going down the Tae Kwan Do/karate route. Those are slow programs in terms of learning how to be good at the moves to make them practical , while at Mma gyms day 1 you learn stuff that will actually happen in a fight.

    Most guys follow a plateau.... It's amazing the difference someone who has never boxed and wrestled vs someone who may have only been doing it for a few months. after that initial first skill jump it takes a while though to get to say, a decent blue belt level.of skill in jiu-jitsu.

    The rule of thumb is that any martial arts gym that doesn't have you sparring or wrestling with someone on the first day isn't worth its salt.

    Re: Police Protection. Some years ago I read an article that it was a very old tradition (going back several hundred years in Anglo-Saxon history) for the authorities, when faced with a riot, to let it rage for about three days before starting serious police or military action against the rioters.

    There were two reasons for this. One, it's easier to round up rioters and kick their butts when they've begun to run out of steam. Second, after three days' worth of anarchy, a bloodthirsty citizenry who had been cheering the rioters on would start suffering damage to their own property, and they'd do an about face and support the cops, which meant the police would not be punished if they had to take harsh measures to stop the rioters, such as gunning them down en masse.

    Really? So, former NYC Mayor David N. Dinkins* and his police commissioner were actually following Anglo-Saxon precedent when, during the Crown Heights pogrom in 1991, they allowed the blood-thirsty mobs to “vent” before restraining them? Who knew.

    *Or “the man in lieu of a Mayor”, as the late Bob Grant would say.

    They also don’t get that given that Trump is in power, free speech protects them. They may believe that what they think is “hate speech” is not protected by the First Amendment – but perhaps someone on the other side will decide that some other type of speech is not protected. Slippery slope. Everyone has an interest in protecting free speech, even if they are too stupid to know it.

    (As a result of this I watched a Milo speech on Youtube from the University of New Mexico – I wouldn’t call it hate speech. It didn’t sound like he hated Muslims, just that he didn’t like them very much. Not sure if there is something called “don’t like” speech, but I think that is a more accurate descriptor.”

    In defense of the local authorities/police – if you don’t live in the Bay Area, you probably don’t get how violent and vicious these anarchists can be. Short of extreme police violence which would also likely get innocent bystanders, probably not much that can be done.

    The police don't WANT to control the rioters. The governments in the Bay Area are on the SAME SIDE as the rioters.

    There is plenty that can be done to control a riot up to and including the use of lethal weapons. Arrests followed by long term imprisonment for felony riot is also effective. It's possible nowadays to take high definition video of a riot. There are cameras all over the place. There are plenty of identifiers even if the rioter is masked. Being masked at a riot should be a felony in and of itself. There's no legitimate reason to be masked. You then arrest everyone, figure out from the video who has committed felonies, indict them, hold them at high bail, and then try and convict them. If they arrest anyone at all now, they let them go the next day.

    These anarchists have not been injured or punished in any way so rioting is a jolly good time for them and the next day they're back to work at the food co-op. Seeing a few of their buddies with their guts ripped open or spending 3 to 5 with the Crips and the Bloods at Folsom might cause a great many of them to reevaluate whether it's really all fun and games after all.

I'm not speaking about intellectuals like yourself but say your average Russian accountant. Do they think America has gone off the deep end? Or do they even know about any of this?

    My limited understanding from the Russians I know is that quite a few college-educated Russian is deeply pozzed and form a large contingent of the subscribers of the liberal Moscow Times. They are driven by self-interest and often angered by traditional norms – for example, a Russian friend of mine forced his wife to work after many arguments, because otherwise how else could he be “as rich as Americans?”

Masculine aggression without any of the neurological safeguards which have evolved over time in male brains to make male-on-male violence relatively safe for both participants, resulting in one male being able to dominate the other without killing him (think bucks butting heads, elephant seals bashing necks and biting each other, etc until one backs down).

    Yes, and there are social and psychological differences as well. Women don't learn to control violent impulses or recognize submission signals as men do, over and above the instincts they've evolved. It's sorta the same way with sex-craziness. Men have to live from puberty on with a tiger in their pants, as I once heard it put. You either learn to tame the tiger or you end up in jail. Women don't have to bother learning, because they don't have a tiger.

    Whenever women get masculinely turned on, which unlike with normal female urges comes with an overriding drive, they don't know what to do with themselves. It's ufamiliar territory. Violence is similar. Those unused to it can get carried away.

    Then there are social consequences. Women don't have a free hand, but they have a whole lot less to fear from bystanders and the cops.

    U.S. Military Sources Claim Trump Approved Yemen Strike Without Enough Preparation

    So how many of you conservatives want to talk about Benghazi right about now?

    Don't be shy or modest. Say something.

    Oh that's right youre too busy. laser focused on what is happening on college campuses in the US, as is Trump.

    The truth is that there was more violence at tea party and trump rallies

    Shame on Trump. Personally, I’m an isolationist, so I don’t think we ought Yemen, or Libya, or any other country. But you already know about Hellary’s role in the Libya debacle, so I don’t have to explain to you that there would have been serious risk of war with her, too.

    I think it would pleasantly surprise the average American to know that outside the US and UK, the sheer level of humanities and 'arts' students is much much lower. It always amazes me how large the proportion is in the US, particularly since you've had to pay through the nose for so long.

    No STEM students were involved in this I can tell you that now. They act so different, almost like they aren't constantly propagandised to in a fashion they must regurgitate in order to pass their exams. They also probably have much better impulse control and less need for exhibitionism. To be fair since these were black blok types, they most likely don't even go to Berkeley, but live close enough to organise a nice recreational riot.

    He shouldn't excuse it by saying it was a youthful indiscretion. He should just claim that they were embracing the enemy's smear-words. Just as homosexual activists started to use the term "queer" in the late 80s / early 90s. In fact, that's probably what they were doing. There is certainly no reason why it should impede his nomination anymore than Kagan's obvious infatuation with socialism.

    I would hope by now that Trump-Republicans would learn the key political lesson of our age: Never Apologize. Never.

    “He shouldn’t excuse it by saying it was a youthful indiscretion. He should just claim that they were embracing the enemy’s smear-words.”

    Close, but no cigar. He wasn’t even “embracing the enemy’s smear-words.” The club was, quite obviously, a joke – a parody. How could anybody but a total moron think otherwise?

    What makes founding & presiding over a “Fascism Forever Club” funny (and it is funny) is the fact that the left is so incredibly stupid that they really can’t tell the difference between the average member of the Federalist Society and the average Nazi.

    If anybody brings this up in his confirmation hearings, Gorsuch should simply ask, incredulously: “do you really think the name of the club was meant seriously? are you really that big of an idiot?”

    Cutting off research grants would really hurt them.

    It’s an absolute necessity to cut off all grant money to liberal professors who keep trying to push the liberal ideology. Trump needs to take the axe to every pro-global warming researcher who’s on the grant sugar teat. All proposals for grants must be reviewed by a conservative committee who are careful to give the boot to the stupid ones. We’d also benefit by getting rid of the extremely silly ‘pop culture’ research perpetrated by blockheads like Melissa Click. They can be idiots on their own dime and own time.

    That was awesome. Even those training protesters are much more hardcore than the anarchist types at most college campus protests. These college protests would last seconds against these riot police. I'm going to send that video to UCB campus police.

    That video only looks good. The police weren’t getting anywhere. The problem is, the classic way to defeat an enemy is a full-bore military-style action in which people actually get hurt, and modern police departments don’t have the stomach for it. These Koreans need to learn what a double envelopment is. Do a Cannae on the protesters and surround them, and start grabbing the rioters on the outside of the the circle and yank them away one at a time and hand them over to arresting officers, and keep squeezing the circle inwards tighter and tighter until everyone’s been arrested and led off in handcuffs.

    Name-dropping Cannae might work in a stupid crowd, but now you are arguing with a former military historian. At Cannae, Hannibal lured the Roman center in by a controlled (or not so controlled depending on sources) retreat in the middle (a most dangerous move since it could generate panic and result in a mass rout), and at the same time, benefitted from having superior cavalry (the Celto-Iberian heavy calvary that overwhelmed one Roman wing and the Numidians who adeptly held the other Roman wing at bay until the victorious Spanish cavalry crashed into its rear). The South Korean police practice riot suppression with the full knowledge that double envelopment is generally not possible due to obstruction (e.g. buildings alongside the roads, cars, onlookers or simply bigger masses of the rioting mob, etc.). And the goal of Cannae - annihilation - is simply not appropriate for suppressing civilian rioters.

    You didn't pay attention, so you missed a crucial element of that video. You say that the South Korean riot police "didn't get anywhere," but if you looked carefully, you'd have realized that at about 1:17-1:20 mark, they do a brief forward surge, grab the ring leaders, and quickly drag them behind the line. The rest is simply containment to reduce collateral damage.

    And these guys know their stuff, because they are trained by elders who have decades of dealing with extremely violent, tough and highly organized student protests. See the actual footages here: https://youtu.be/zueKrrMoUkY

    My preferred method to deal with these hard left universities is as such..They all have grossly underfunded pensions for their faculty and administrations. Pass pension reform that basically says, fully fund your pensions OR cut non core academic programs. Presto, the real professors and the indignation studies professors are at each others throats...and it gives the real professors the political cover they need knock these phonies down a couple pegs.

    I like this idea. Perhaps the universities can simply eliminate any department that did not exist in, say, 1949. That should get rid of most of these grievance-mongering “studies”. Of course, the rot has infested real departments as well, such as rhetoric, English, sociology, history, and linguistics. Rooting the phonies out of them will be a bit more difficult, especially since many of them have been there for a while and have tenure.

    After reviewing your comments and looking at the video again, what I noticed is that 'after the ring leaders get dragged off,' the crowd is still rioting merrily away. Taking them out of the equation didn't do a thing to disrupt the remainder, demoralize them, or even slow them down. The rioters still continued to fight and began to throw incendiaries at the cops and set gas cylinders alight. The latter could have killed several cops if the canisters had exploded, and the flames could have injured people. The cops should have moved in and captured those cylinders before they could even be set on fire.

    Several of the later encounters are one-on-one, rioter bashing away at an individual cop, which could have resulted in injuries to the officer if the rioter was determined and evil-minded enough. The trained man isn't always the one who wins the encounter. I consider it idiotic to allow one guy to attack you when you've got enough men to let 3 or 4 of your guys surround the rioter and take him like wolves downing a sheep. You want to guarantee that he loses--after all, it's your neck--not give the rioter an even chance like the Koreans do several times here. Riots are not some sort of duel fought by Marquis de Queensbury rules.

Later he started making pills with his son Tony and the two became wealthier still.
    In the nineties pere et fils were active on the London philanthropic scene with frequent mentions in the Jewish Chronicle, such as when they founded the ‘Oxford Institute for Yiddish Studies.’ Scandal followed the family to London (accusations of slave camps for the insane was a big deal even then), and let’s just say the Tads are not mentioned these days.

    They also don't get that given that Trump is in power, free speech protects them. They may believe that what they think is "hate speech" is not protected by the First Amendment - but perhaps someone on the other side will decide that some other type of speech is not protected. Slippery slope. Everyone has an interest in protecting free speech, even if they are too stupid to know it.

    (As a result of this I watched a Milo speech on Youtube from the University of New Mexico - I wouldn't call it hate speech. It didn't sound like he hated Muslims, just that he didn't like them very much. Not sure if there is something called "don't like" speech, but I think that is a more accurate descriptor."

    In defense of the local authorities/police - if you don't live in the Bay Area, you probably don't get how violent and vicious these anarchists can be. Short of extreme police violence which would also likely get innocent bystanders, probably not much that can be done. There is a long history going back at least to the first Gulf War of the police not being able to control these people.

    After reviewing your comments and looking at the video again, what I noticed is that ‘after the ring leaders get dragged off,’ the crowd is still rioting merrily away.
     
    The first clip is that of a simulated crowd. The idea is to apprehend the ringleaders and contain the riot/limit collateral damage. That's what they were practicing. If you looked at the second clip, a long montage, of the actual actions of the Korean riot police in the 80's and 90's, you can see that they assault several rioter-occupied and -barricaded campuses by storm, arrest the ringleaders, and take back the campuses (even landing officers on rooftops using helicopters).

    The importance of rounding up the ringleaders cannot be emphasized enough. Mobs are pretty cowardly and mindless when the leaders are absent. By putting the ringleaders out of action, you prevent or retard future riots. You want to win the war, not just the battle.

    Several of the later encounters are one-on-one, rioter bashing away at an individual cop, which could have resulted in injuries to the officer if the rioter was determined and evil-minded enough.
     
    More stupid comment. If the officers simply wanted to disable the rioters, they could have beanbagged them, shoot them with rubber bullets or use the good ol' batons. The problem is those can result in very serious injuries or even death. See below.

    Riots are not some sort of duel fought by Marquis de Queensbury rules.
     
    You really don't know jack, do you? When even single a student rioter is killed or seriously wounded by a police officer, no matter how justified, there is a massive political repercussion that comes down hard on the department. That was true even during the military dictatorship of South Korea c. 1985 and it's certainly true on American campuses today.

    When you suppress a riot, you basically have two goals. First, you apprehend the ringleaders - those who organize and lead riots. Two, you contain the riots and limit the collateral damage, very strongly preferably without any death or serious injury even to a rioter.

    Otherwise, it would be very easy for a handful of officers to suppress a riot. You just let loose a few rounds with an AR-15 or a few buckshots with a Remington 870, everyone runs for the hill. But of course that's going to look real bad on TV. Ever hear of Kent State? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/65/Kent_State_massacre.jpg

    Media, infected with the neurosis of the Tribe, promoted Obama as new jesus and then vilified Trump as 'literally hitler'. For 8 yrs under Obama, there was soft-peddling of the phoniest president in US history. And the media covered up real problems like black crime by labels the thugs 'teens' and 'youths'. Meanwhile, every Hate Hoax about KKK and white supremacists have been hyped sky-high.

    Also, while far-right ideology has long been censured and condemned by the media, the violent culture of rap music and anarcho-terrorist culture have been glorified and romanticized. Since young ones, especially males are high on hormonal thug instinct, they seek outlet for their aggression. Those who can make it in sports expend their energies through ball-play(and balling the sluts on campus). For males who don't make the team or lack 'big man on campus status', there is the culture of rock concerts and radical politics. Since rightist politics have been censured and prohibited among youths, a lot of young males channel their male aggression through underground rock culture that is associated with antifa and anarchist strains. Most antifa types didn't get ideology through books and study. They got it through rock/punk/rap scene. They were more likely converted into the movement by Matrix movies, Rage Against Machine, Public Enemy, the Clash, or articles in Rolling Stone magazine.
    And the real animating force behind their lunacy isn't much different from Alex and his droogs in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. They need outlets for their young male energy.

    Honest ones join street gangs. But middle class kids want to justify their thuggery, so they seek ideology. Likewise, the main reason for some kids joining skinhead gangs had less to do with ideology that frustrated longing for excitement and action.

Also, even though all violence is officially illegal, there is no moral, political, and ideological censure of much of bad behavior by blacks and proglodytes.



    If a bunch of far-right thugs went on a rampage, the media would foam at the mouth, Democrats would condemn it, and even Republicans would condemn it. There would be loud sermons about 'hate crimes'.
    But when antifa goes nuts, the media just report it neutrally, the Democrats either remain silent or give tacit support(like Obama and Hillary did for race riots after Ferguson), and Republicans say nothing. Even Trump wont say anything about Berkeley,and he hardly said anything to condemn antifa violence against his supporters in 2016. Thus, white patriots are treated like Palestinians in Israel.

    Anyway, the media have spread the message that Trump is hitler, Putin is hitler, and 'Muslim ban' is WWII and Holocaust all over again, and etc. And given that pop culture and celebrity mania are the dominant culture for many young people, the entertainment industry freakouts about Trump infects them too.

    The media also gave green light to 'punch nazis' after Spencer got clocked. There was no condemnation, and even Conservatives said nothing. So, the national consensus is now that it is OKAY, even cool, to attack 'nazis' who could be any Trump supporter.
    Indeed, the Tribe in the media are especially angry over the Trump victory because the anti-Trump violence failed to cower the will of Trump voters. Almost all the political violence in 2016 was anti-Trump, and the media hardly condemned it. Media didn't even cover much of it. Anyway, the message that Trump-supporters were supposed to take from the violence was that they better not even dare to vote for Trump because they are deplorables who deserve an ass-whupping. But the deplorables voted for Trump anyway. The Tribe is furious at such uppity behavior.

    It's rather odd. The media are trying to send a message not unlike the editorial of a newspaper after Jack Johnson defeated the great white hope. The paper told the Negroes not to get uppity or boastful about the victory.
    I think the Tribal Media are sending the same message. Spencer got punched on Inauguration day. The media more or less endorsed it and celebrated it, and in doing so, sent out a missive to all young exasperated progs to punch a nazi to send a message to white patriots NOT TO GET TOO COCKY OR UPPITY. DON'T GET TOO PROUD. This goes to show that white folks have become the 'new negroes' who are expected to be shuffling uncle tom before the Tribal Massuh. "Don't git uppity just because Trump run." And antifa is used as overseers to whip white folks into shape. Shut up and pick some cotton. The Tribe sees this as a Slave Rebellion.

    While there would have some unrest regardless of the nature of media coverage, there is no doubt that the anti-Trump media coverage in 2016 was the most hysterical ever.
    It was rabid, extreme, and crazy. The narrative received by the urban and radical young was that Trump is 'literally hitler' and his supporters are 'nazis'. Trump is trying to restore simple law and order in immigration policy, but this is WWII all over again for those who've come under media spell. Snowflakes turned into hailstorms as this most easily triggered generation have been spoonfed on the bitter medicine that they are now living in Neo-Nazi-land.

    And then, there is the power of academia. We know that academia have been totally taken over by Progs. Indeed, they worked politically and systemically to recruit and promote only their ideological brethren and sistren. This happened for 30-40 yrs, and the result is the academia has become the incestuous hotbed of dogmatic thinking and PC lunacies. Safe in their own ideological bubble, ideologues never had to deal with reality. They had this fixed view of the world where the 'progressives' are struggling nobly against Nazis and KKK and Haven Monahans. Much of it was shaped by the paranoia of the Tribe that served as professors who would concoct PC and notions such as 'hate speech' that came to encompass more and more speech. (In Canada, even the failure to address some tranny as 'ze' can be constituted as 'hate speech'.)
    But what if there is no Hitler? Okay, pretend Trump is Hitler. What if there is no KKK? Pretend blankets and science labs are associated with KKK. What if there are no nazis on campus? Well, any Trump supporter is a 'nazi'. Since young ones are stupid and gullible --- and hungry for a self-righteous view of the world where they are 'good' joined against 'evil' --- , they've latched onto this cartoon vision of reality. Since their worldview depends on combating Hitler, Nazis, and KKK, they must turn their enemies into such caricatures to feel justified. It's Justice Pornography. At some point, Progressivism loses its main themes(some by victory and some by failure), and it turns regressive into childhood fantasies of cops and robbers. It's sort of like what happens in the movie REGRESSION where people begin to hallucinate stuff because a certain narrative and idea begin to infect their minds. It's also sort of what happens to the character in Mamet's HOMICIDE. His awareness of existence of antisemitism makes him imagine much more, far beyond reality. He even surmises that a Jewish shop-owner was killed by some vast neo-nazi conspiracy when it turns out that she was killed by neighborhood negro hoods.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRrVHErtFo4

    Also, the rise of Trump finally permits some masculine element to reassert itself among the progs. During Obama, the progs couldn't get worked up into militant mode, so things got soft and trannies & 50 gender pansies took the limelight.
    But now that the message is NAZIS RULE THE US, the pansies are being pushed to the back while the macho thug force are emerging as the vanguard. And violence is their forte since, in any sound, factual, and rational debate on just about any issue, the Alt Right will mop the floor with them. Alt Right has the advantage of having no use for censorious PC. In contrast, antifa must stick to PC formula, much like Mao's Red Guards. They can only yammer in slogans and cliches, and this makes them sound stupid when matched with real reason and facts. All they can do is shout 'nazi', 'racist', fascist', etc.

    The alliance of Western academia and Big business is not unlike the alliance between Wahabi and Saudi Royal Family. The Royal Family is very rich, very corrupt, very materialistic, and totally venal. So, they are vulnerable to moral and spiritual condemnation. To shield themselves from such opprobrium --- that eventually brought down the Shah --- , they formed a partnership with the Wahahi sect. This way, the Royal family would lavishly fund the Sect, its mosques, its missions. In return, the Wahabis would bless the family and shower it with praise. Thus, the Royal family would be shielded from the potential moral and spiritual outrage among the masses.

    Something similar happened in the West since May 68 movement. As the capitalist class came under increasing attack from the Left, it had to find a way to ameliorate the Left and win it over. Capitalists may have appreciated support from conservatives, but why pay for something you can get for free? The real danger came from the Left that dominated media and especially academia. The rich class may have all the money, but culture and values are determined by the intellectual class in academia and media. The boomer enterprisers who went for money knew of the boomer radicals who were taking over the institutions. So, a kind of symbiotic relationship had to be forged. The rich class would fund the Left on grounds that the main leftist ire would be directed at anyone but the rich class.
    And that was essentially the formula of Clintonism where the rich class were allowed to rake in more and more as long as they funded the 'left'. This had a corrupting effect on the Left in the same way that Royal Family money had a corrupting effect on the Wahabi sect that has become entrenched and privileged. So, Wahabis may fund and cause trouble anywhere but NOT in the domain of the Royal Family. Likewise, the pact between the rich class and the Left means that the Left, in taking money from the likes of Soros and Wall Street, must take their rage out on 'racists', 'homophobes', 'fascists', and 'nazis' who could be any ordinary Joe with a maga hat. This way, the Left became the main enemy of the white working class and the tool of globalist elites.

    But then, all this anti-Muslim hostility on the Right is to miss the point. In the EU, yes, Muslims are a serious problem. In the US, the real enemies of the patriots are not the 'muzzies'.

    After reviewing your comments and looking at the video again, what I noticed is that 'after the ring leaders get dragged off,' the crowd is still rioting merrily away. Taking them out of the equation didn't do a thing to disrupt the remainder, demoralize them, or even slow them down. The rioters still continued to fight and began to throw incendiaries at the cops and set gas cylinders alight. The latter could have killed several cops if the canisters had exploded, and the flames could have injured people. The cops should have moved in and captured those cylinders before they could even be set on fire.

    Several of the later encounters are one-on-one, rioter bashing away at an individual cop, which could have resulted in injuries to the officer if the rioter was determined and evil-minded enough. The trained man isn't always the one who wins the encounter. I consider it idiotic to allow one guy to attack you when you've got enough men to let 3 or 4 of your guys surround the rioter and take him like wolves downing a sheep. You want to guarantee that he loses--after all, it's your neck--not give the rioter an even chance like the Koreans do several times here. Riots are not some sort of duel fought by Marquis de Queensbury rules.

    In sum, I still find their tactics lacking. No, you don't have to kill the rioters. I didn't call for that. I'm calling for a better way to fight them.

    Korean riots are often a form of mass combat sports. The anti-riot squad draftees aren’t there to prevent or stop riots, they are there to Do Battle with the rioters on the other side. A good time is had by all.

    That's not quite true. While the riots did contain a strongly ritualistic element (they happened when the new school year started every spring and was a rite of passage for the young men in college), the military government in the 1980's went to great lengths to suppress them, as they created considerable political instability. It also employed a sizable intellgence force to infiltrate and identify the ringleaders (which was how the riot police knew whom to apprehend during the riots - in fact, during riots, while the armored and "scary-looking" riot police officers occupied the attention of the mobs, plain-clothed officers quickly ganged up on the leaders and snatched them away).

    On the opposite side, numerous South Korean campus radicals were communists or communist-sympathizers and most of them longed to overthrow the military government (even if that meant aiding the North Koreans by destablizing the South).

    These riots and suppression attempts weren't just games - there were serious stakes involved... although they were quite entertaining to watch for the bystanders. There were even very comical/odd/civilized moments such as when a young mother with a child tried to cross the street, and both sides immediate ceased combat and made way for them like the Red Sea parting before Moses.

    Occasionally there were fatalities (on both sides) that swayed the public opinion one way or another... though typically the real nefarious deaths occurred away from the public eye when a communist-directed ringleader was "interrogated" in the basement of the domestic intelligence.

    People need to stop accepting Californian secession.

If they vote to leave the only proper response is to invade, drive out the immigrants, and reclaim it for America. Like hell are we going to let these people steal it from us.

    He is not stupid enough say "I want to kill all nonwhites," but the implications of what and how he wants it are pretty clear. See: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/lets-party-like-its-1933-inside-the-disturbing-alt-right-world-of-richard-spencer/2016/11/22/cf81dc74-aff7-11e6-840f-e3ebab6bcdd3_story.html

    “We need an ethno-state,” he said in a 2013 speech, “so that our people can ‘come home again,’ can live amongst family and feel safe and secure.”

    He ended his address by invoking the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.: “I have a dream.”

    Last week, Spencer was reluctant to discuss how that dream would be achieved.

    How, he was asked, in a nation with more than 100 million blacks, Asians and Latinos, could a whites-only territory be created without overwhelming violence?

    Over chocolate croissants and an Americano coffee at a Corner Bakery Cafe, he avoided the question, discussing Nietzsche, communism’s origins, history’s unpredictability.

    Then, at last, he offered an answer.

    “Look, maybe it will be horribly bloody and terrible,” he said. “That’s a possibility with everything.” [Boldfaces mine.]
     

    Of course, Spencer, feeling like Der Fuehrer already, reserves the right to pick which nonwhite can live in his ethnostate, because you know, by his own words, he is "a generous guy":

    His attitude toward women and minorities made his admiration for Tila Tequila, the Nazi-loving Vietnamese American, surprising. Would he allow her in the ethno-state?

    “There are always exceptions, I guess,” an amused Spencer would say later. “I’m a generous guy.”
     

    By now it's well-known now that Richard Spencer has dated Asian women and find them to be "smart and cute," "a thing."

    I am not a white supremacist (I am a "citizenist"), so I don't wish him success, but Spencer is an attention-seeking, overgrown juvenile without real life work experience (what with his mommy underwriting his sartorial and watch habits) with Nazi will-to-power fantasies... one who has done and will do damage to positive and productive white advocacy. He hasn't lifted a finger to help actual white people in distress. This is all about him, hence his relentless taking credit for Trump, Miller, et al.

    Oh hell man if you like Flashman you can't be all bad. Have you read Fraser's Quartered Safe Out Here?

    Super book. And not a bit of it fiction.

    An unfairly little remembered theatre of the second world war.

    And much of the dialogue in authentic working-class and North Country English accents.

    After reviewing your comments and looking at the video again, what I noticed is that 'after the ring leaders get dragged off,' the crowd is still rioting merrily away. Taking them out of the equation didn't do a thing to disrupt the remainder, demoralize them, or even slow them down. The rioters still continued to fight and began to throw incendiaries at the cops and set gas cylinders alight. The latter could have killed several cops if the canisters had exploded, and the flames could have injured people. The cops should have moved in and captured those cylinders before they could even be set on fire.

    Several of the later encounters are one-on-one, rioter bashing away at an individual cop, which could have resulted in injuries to the officer if the rioter was determined and evil-minded enough. The trained man isn't always the one who wins the encounter. I consider it idiotic to allow one guy to attack you when you've got enough men to let 3 or 4 of your guys surround the rioter and take him like wolves downing a sheep. You want to guarantee that he loses--after all, it's your neck--not give the rioter an even chance like the Koreans do several times here. Riots are not some sort of duel fought by Marquis de Queensbury rules.

    In sum, I still find their tactics lacking. No, you don't have to kill the rioters. I didn't call for that. I'm calling for a better way to fight them.

    After reviewing your comments and looking at the video again, what I noticed is that ‘after the ring leaders get dragged off,’ the crowd is still rioting merrily away.

    The first clip is that of a simulated crowd. The idea is to apprehend the ringleaders and contain the riot/limit collateral damage. That’s what they were practicing. If you looked at the second clip, a long montage, of the actual actions of the Korean riot police in the 80′s and 90′s, you can see that they assault several rioter-occupied and -barricaded campuses by storm, arrest the ringleaders, and take back the campuses (even landing officers on rooftops using helicopters).

    The importance of rounding up the ringleaders cannot be emphasized enough. Mobs are pretty cowardly and mindless when the leaders are absent. By putting the ringleaders out of action, you prevent or retard future riots. You want to win the war, not just the battle.

    Several of the later encounters are one-on-one, rioter bashing away at an individual cop, which could have resulted in injuries to the officer if the rioter was determined and evil-minded enough.

    More stupid comment. If the officers simply wanted to disable the rioters, they could have beanbagged them, shoot them with rubber bullets or use the good ol’ batons. The problem is those can result in very serious injuries or even death. See below.

    Riots are not some sort of duel fought by Marquis de Queensbury rules.

    You really don’t know jack, do you? When even single a student rioter is killed or seriously wounded by a police officer, no matter how justified, there is a massive political repercussion that comes down hard on the department. That was true even during the military dictatorship of South Korea c. 1985 and it’s certainly true on American campuses today.

    When you suppress a riot, you basically have two goals. First, you apprehend the ringleaders – those who organize and lead riots. Two, you contain the riots and limit the collateral damage, very strongly preferably without any death or serious injury even to a rioter.

    Otherwise, it would be very easy for a handful of officers to suppress a riot. You just let loose a few rounds with an AR-15 or a few buckshots with a Remington 870, everyone runs for the hill. But of course that’s going to look real bad on TV. Ever hear of Kent State?

    Korean riots are often a form of mass combat sports. The anti-riot squad draftees aren't there to prevent or stop riots, they are there to Do Battle with the rioters on the other side. A good time is had by all.

    Korean riots are often a form of mass combat sports. The anti-riot squad draftees aren’t there to prevent or stop riots, they are there to Do Battle with the rioters on the other side. A good time is had by all.

    That’s not quite true. While the riots did contain a strongly ritualistic element (they happened when the new school year started every spring and was a rite of passage for the young men in college), the military government in the 1980′s went to great lengths to suppress them, as they created considerable political instability. It also employed a sizable intellgence force to infiltrate and identify the ringleaders (which was how the riot police knew whom to apprehend during the riots – in fact, during riots, while the armored and “scary-looking” riot police officers occupied the attention of the mobs, plain-clothed officers quickly ganged up on the leaders and snatched them away).

    On the opposite side, numerous South Korean campus radicals were communists or communist-sympathizers and most of them longed to overthrow the military government (even if that meant aiding the North Koreans by destablizing the South).

    These riots and suppression attempts weren’t just games – there were serious stakes involved… although they were quite entertaining to watch for the bystanders. There were even very comical/odd/civilized moments such as when a young mother with a child tried to cross the street, and both sides immediate ceased combat and made way for them like the Red Sea parting before Moses.

    Occasionally there were fatalities (on both sides) that swayed the public opinion one way or another… though typically the real nefarious deaths occurred away from the public eye when a communist-directed ringleader was “interrogated” in the basement of the domestic intelligence.

    "I have no interest in encouraging a bloody race war to achieve power. Do you?"

    I've seen no evidence that Spencer advocates any such thing.

    I’ve seen no evidence that Spencer advocates any such thing.

    He is not stupid enough say “I want to kill all nonwhites,” but the implications of what and how he wants it are pretty clear. See: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/lets-party-like-its-1933-inside-the-disturbing-alt-right-world-of-richard-spencer/2016/11/22/cf81dc74-aff7-11e6-840f-e3ebab6bcdd3_story.html

    “We need an ethno-state,” he said in a 2013 speech, “so that our people can ‘come home again,’ can live amongst family and feel safe and secure.”

    He ended his address by invoking the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.: “I have a dream.”

    Last week, Spencer was reluctant to discuss how that dream would be achieved.

    How, he was asked, in a nation with more than 100 million blacks, Asians and Latinos, could a whites-only territory be created without overwhelming violence?

    Over chocolate croissants and an Americano coffee at a Corner Bakery Cafe, he avoided the question, discussing Nietzsche, communism’s origins, history’s unpredictability.

    Then, at last, he offered an answer.

    “Look, maybe it will be horribly bloody and terrible,” he said. “That’s a possibility with everything.” [Boldfaces mine.]

    Of course, Spencer, feeling like Der Fuehrer already, reserves the right to pick which nonwhite can live in his ethnostate, because you know, by his own words, he is “a generous guy”:

    His attitude toward women and minorities made his admiration for Tila Tequila, the Nazi-loving Vietnamese American, surprising. Would he allow her in the ethno-state?

    “There are always exceptions, I guess,” an amused Spencer would say later. “I’m a generous guy.”

    By now it’s well-known now that Richard Spencer has dated Asian women and find them to be “smart and cute,” “a thing.”

    I am not a white supremacist (I am a “citizenist”), so I don’t wish him success, but Spencer is an attention-seeking, overgrown juvenile without real life work experience (what with his mommy underwriting his sartorial and watch habits) with Nazi will-to-power fantasies… one who has done and will do damage to positive and productive white advocacy. He hasn’t lifted a finger to help actual white people in distress. This is all about him, hence his relentless taking credit for Trump, Miller, et al.

    "He shouldn’t excuse it by saying it was a youthful indiscretion. He should just claim that they were embracing the enemy’s smear-words."

    Close, but no cigar. He wasn't even "embracing the enemy's smear-words." The club was, quite obviously, a joke - a parody. How could anybody but a total moron think otherwise?

    What makes founding & presiding over a "Fascism Forever Club" funny (and it is funny) is the fact that the left is so incredibly stupid that they really can't tell the difference between the average member of the Federalist Society and the average Nazi.

    If anybody brings this up in his confirmation hearings, Gorsuch should simply ask, incredulously: "do you really think the name of the club was meant seriously? are you really that big of an idiot?"

    As a man, you would have to have seriously big, brassy cojones to dare propositioning a lesbian, and then if refused picking a fight with her.

    They can be quite scary. Masculine aggression without any of the neurological safeguards which have evolved over time in male brains to make male-on-male violence relatively safe for both participants, resulting in one male being able to dominate the other without killing him (think bucks butting heads, elephant seals bashing necks and biting each other, etc until one backs down).

    Yes, and there are social and psychological differences as well. Women don’t learn to control violent impulses or recognize submission signals as men do, over and above the instincts they’ve evolved. It’s sorta the same way with sex-craziness. Men have to live from puberty on with a tiger in their pants, as I once heard it put. You either learn to tame the tiger or you end up in jail. Women don’t have to bother learning, because they don’t have a tiger.

    Whenever women get masculinely turned on, which unlike with normal female urges comes with an overriding drive, they don’t know what to do with themselves. It’s ufamiliar territory. Violence is similar. Those unused to it can get carried away.

    Then there are social consequences. Women don’t have a free hand, but they have a whole lot less to fear from bystanders and the cops.
