Screenshot 2018-09-09 16.53.41Globalist media and shoe corporations hoped that a U.S. Open victory by half-black but Japan-born Naomi Osaka would begin to convince the Japanese to open their borders to massive immigration by black men from fast-growing Africa:

Can she also burst Japan’s expectations of what it means to be Japanese?

But do you get the feeling that Serena’s tennis court tantrum might be causing the socially sensitive, harmony-loving Japanese to have second thoughts about black immigration?

    Naomi seems lovely to me.
     
    Lovely? I'd say one of the problems with the Osaka propaganda campaign is simply that she is unattractive.

    Not ugly, just ... not attractive. Most even "average" girls are attractive at 20, because ... they are 20! Osaka is far enough below average in looks that that is not the case. (I don't think she's a full SD below average--at that level in the US now you're dealing with the fatty problem which is making huge numbers of young American women unappealing.)
    , @bomag

    diversity within limits is fine
     
    That's the rub: limits. Once you agree to bleed a little bit, the sharks don't let up.

    The US adopted the "diversity is good" mantra, and now we have roving gangs of special units that demand everything be diversified. You can see with your own eyes what is happening.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese-Jewish_common_ancestry_theory

    The Japanese-Jewish common ancestry theory (日ユ同祖論 Nichiyu Dōsoron) is a fringe theory that appeared in the 17th century as a hypothesis which claimed the Japanese people were the main part of the ten lost tribes of Israel. A later version portrayed them as descendants of a tribe of Jewish Nestorians. Some versions of the theory applied to the whole population, but others only claimed that a specific group within the Japanese people had descended from Jews.
     
    Are you sure Ryooichi Ueda is not one of those?

    Their rulers tend to be more right wing then the people or don’t openly loathe them like Western elites. Even left wing Japanese tend to have their limits.

    Serena is the Hillary of tennis. She felt she was owed that victory, threw a tantrum when she didn’t win, had the tennis and media establishment on her side, and blamed a conspiracy for her loss. Sad that she didn’t think bigger and blame the person most likely behind her loss: Putin.

    Her fans did their part to recreate the excitement of the aftermath of the 2016 election by booing the winner. Questions:

    – will tennis fans say of Osaka – not my champion?

    - What will tennis fans wear on their heads as they protest the game?

    - Will Mueller expand his probe to include Serena’s loss?

    - Is there a way to blame Trump and white people to unite the Coalition on this important issue?

    - Can this also be blamed on global warming? (That will also help blame Trump)

    Before this next HBD pep rally gets rolling along and then devolves into high school war stories and videos of rock bands…. doesn’t the behavior of Serena Williams typify the entitled, bullying culture of her entire country?

    I remember when “USA!” was proud to field an Olympic basketball team without NBA players — until they lost. Then it was time to change the standards to ensure victory. (I’ve since walked even farther away, but didn’t an NBA-laden “Dream Team” come up short, too, losing out to a better style of team play and offenses that could do more than travel-n-dunk?) If “we” don’t win, then something or someone must have unfairly kept “us” from “our” rightful place in the world.

    You guys love that Serena Williams is black, but you’re deluded if you think that the rest of the world draws such distinctions.

    Japan will be wise to continue limiting the importation of black, brown, white, and every other hue and decadence of Exceptional Nation.

  11. File under “Rule By Actresses”

    It was actress Olivia Munn who lobbied the studio to remove a scene from the new Predator movie in which she performed with a guy who was a registered sex offender.

    https://variety.com/2018/film/news/olivia-munn-says-fox-didnt-return-her-call-initially-after-reporting-predator-sex-offender-exclusive-interview-1202933315/

    Thing is, the guy served his time, and there’s no indication he acted improperly on the set (where he was performing with adults). So is the new rule that a convicted sex offender is completely unemployable on camera?

    Or is this just an aging actress (she’s 38) looking for some glory?

  12. I don’t think most Japanese needed Serena to convince them of the perils of unfettered immigration. Sadaharu Oh was not universally accepted, and was occasionally booed, by the Japanese despite being half-Japanese and a fine baseball player in Japan. Granted, that was a Japan of 40+ years ago, but Japan’s traditions are still widely respected by the average Japanese and their immigration policy reflects this.

    The strident nationalism of the an earlier Japanese generations has abated, but the realization that gaikokujin bring not just skills but also cultural baggage and behavior patterns (not all of which are good) is more than enough to put the brakes on mass immigration (at least for now). Also, the requirements to become a Japanese citizen are none too lax and Japan does not permit dual citizenship. The American born Japanese scholar Donald Keene had to renounce his American citizenship to become a Japanese citizen.

  13. Mr. Blank says:

    That was exactly my reaction when I first read about this: “Boy, this isn’t going to be go down well with Asians.” Blacks will have forgotten about this next week, but Asians will remember it for many, many years, and will plan accordingly. In the short term, this will probably scuttle any attempt to get Asians to meekly accept affirmative action limits in the name of “social harmony.”

    Whether that translates into support for the GOP is doubtful, since Asians seem fully invested in the war on honkies. But this doesn’t bode well for how things are going to shake out once the honkies are out of the picture. If you thought Sarah Jeong types were mean to white people…

    But we knew that. Pity that the SJWs don’t.

    Watching Naomi Osaka’s postgame interview by the Japanese press
    corps, I got the impression that she at best understood only 80% of
    the questions put to her in Japanese. She invariably answered in
    English. That’s not going to endear her to her potential fans in Japan.
    However, she sounded very humble. That’s a big plus in Japan. I had
    a personal guide in Tokyo once, a Japanese woman in her early 30s,
    who lived for a year or two in Britain. She told me that what she couldn’t
    stand in the West was the people’s attitudes. It seemed like everybody took
    assertiveness training. Everybody was bragging about their accomplishments,
    their degrees, and their careers.

    Naomi also said that her Haitian dad mostly worked with her to raise
    her self-confidence and self-esteem. I suspect that he charmed his
    Japanese wife with his knowledge of French. Japanese women, like
    women everywhere, are fascinated by France, Italy, and Spain, starting
    with their cuisines, their syllabic, musical languages (in contrast to the
    staccato sound of English), and the Mediterranean climate. Many years
    ago I met a green-eyed American woman who married a (well-educated)
    Lebanese fellow. It was obvious that he charmed her with his knowledge
    of French. My Tokyo guide’s favorite American movie was Roman Holiday.
    She loved Rome (and she implied that she wouldn’t kick someone like
    Gregory Peck out of bed!). So guys, study French or Italian to score points
    with the ladies.

  19. Seems plausible, yet Spandrell, who lived In Japan, isn’t overly optimistic:

    Not that they will achieve anything. The [Japanese] National Review conservatives also stood up athwart history and yelled: “Stop!” It didn’t. It just slowed down. Changed tactics. Turned down the fire burning the frog. Learned salami-slicing tactics. Japan doesn’t have slut walks. But in just 10 years it has come from a country where a majority of married women were housewives to one where women work at Western levels, are increasingly present in high-level politics, and, who could’ve guessed it? are starting to agitate against sexual harassment. Big #metoo demonstration in Tokyo these days, I’m told.

    As for immigration, Japan has more than 2 million foreigners working there, and it’s steadily growing. They won’t bring the yearly 200,000 brown men that the Japanese Business Association has repeatedly asked for; but they’ll get there. To their credit, working conditions given to foreigners are so nasty that most of them end up leaving by their own accord way before their contract expires. US State Department reports, and those of their affiliated NGOs have been loudly haranguing Japan about this, so it could change with time, but I don’t see Japan starting an immigrant welfare bureaucracy like Western countries have. They don’t have the money.

    Don't see thee problem with agitating against sexual harassment. It might have made sense in the USA back in the 1950s for example. But if it runs off the rails into fantasy territory as it's done in the USA in recent decades, that's a different matter.

    Abe is refreshingly explicit that he doesn’t plan on opening up to mass immigration.

    Japan at the moment has black African illegal aliens working in construction, but by being illegal, and black in a country with approximately zero black citizens, they can be easily rounded up and expelled in the future.

    Other foreign workers are from Brazil and the Philippines. Japan sent a bunch of Japanese to Brazil post-war since they could barely feed the population. They worked in agriculture and had a terrible time, but their descendants have a preferential visa status and come to work here.

    In addition, there are a lot of Filipinos, mostly women. I don’t know what their IQ is, but they are a pretty good class of immigrant overall. Ther are reasonably smart, the mix of Filipino with Japanees produces a mostly Japanese-looking but very attractive racial mix (many actresses and models), and they also work in bars, especially in the depopulated-of-women countryside, serving as wives for men there, often older men, and they don’t mind getting knocked up and producing and raising kids.

    Nigerian--unlike some ethnic groups, white guys are capable of thought beyond "is it good for the …" level. Ideas. General principles.

    I have no particular interest in Japan. I'm not smitten by Japanese girls. Don't love Japanese culture. I've never been to the joint--beyond a Narita airport hotel--and very far down on the list of places i'd like to see. And it absolutely doesn't bother me that they don't want to have me in their country club. I'm not offended.

    Just like i take pleasure in say hearing about some robber getting his ass shot off in Timbuktu, i take pleasure in the Japanese saying f-u, to "immigration is good", "diversity is our strength", etc. etc.--globohomo.

    Oh, the ‘Japan = Lost Tribe of Israel’ is a fun theory.

    Allegedly one of the Emperor’s Three Sacred Treasures has “YHVH” written on it. If you squint in just the right way....

    The Japanese “Touhou Project” games allude to it by having the 5th boss in Mountain of Faith be a miko from the Moriya (= Moriah) shrine who fights by throwing Old Testament miracles at you.

    The problem with many women's sports is that in order to win, a woman has to be more like a man than her opponents. That kinda negates the whole purpose of having women's sports.

    Thought experiment: Women and men competing in the same leagues, with different levels, like major, minor, etc. as in baseball. At some level, you would have the worst men competing with the best women. Outcome: Spectators would only watch the major leagues, which would be all men.

Do you think a lot of Japanese women are going to Haiti or Africa to look for mates? I doubt it.

    Lovely? I’d say one of the problems with the Osaka propaganda campaign is simply that she is unattractive.

    Not ugly, just … not attractive. Most even “average” girls are attractive at 20, because … they are 20! Osaka is far enough below average in looks that that is not the case. (I don’t think she’s a full SD below average–at that level in the US now you’re dealing with the fatty problem which is making huge numbers of young American women unappealing.)

    I think nglaer is using a more holistic criterium for "lovely", which includes her more quiet and polite demeanor; Osaka may not be pretty, but her she behaved better than Serena Williams, making her much more lovable.

    Watching Naomi Osaka's postgame interview by the Japanese press
    corps, I got the impression that she at best understood only 80% of
    the questions put to her in Japanese. She invariably answered in
    English. That's not going to endear her to her potential fans in Japan.
    However, she sounded very humble. That's a big plus in Japan. I had
    a personal guide in Tokyo once, a Japanese woman in her early 30s,
    who lived for a year or two in Britain. She told me that what she couldn't
    stand in the West was the people's attitudes. It seemed like everybody took
    assertiveness training. Everybody was bragging about their accomplishments,
    their degrees, and their careers.

    Naomi also said that her Haitian dad mostly worked with her to raise
    her self-confidence and self-esteem. I suspect that he charmed his
    Japanese wife with his knowledge of French. Japanese women, like
    women everywhere, are fascinated by France, Italy, and Spain, starting
    with their cuisines, their syllabic, musical languages (in contrast to the
    staccato sound of English), and the Mediterranean climate. Many years
    ago I met a green-eyed American woman who married a (well-educated)
    Lebanese fellow. It was obvious that he charmed her with his knowledge
    of French. My Tokyo guide's favorite American movie was Roman Holiday.
    She loved Rome (and she implied that she wouldn't kick someone like
    Gregory Peck out of bed!). So guys, study French or Italian to score points
    with the ladies.

    She told me that what she couldn’t stand in the West was the people’s attitudes. It seemed like everybody took assertiveness training. Everybody was bragging about their accomplishments, their degrees, and their careers.

    Seems plausible, yet Spandrell, who lived In Japan, isn't overly optimistic:

    Not that they will achieve anything. The [Japanese] National Review conservatives also stood up athwart history and yelled: “Stop!” It didn’t. It just slowed down. Changed tactics. Turned down the fire burning the frog. Learned salami-slicing tactics. Japan doesn’t have slut walks. But in just 10 years it has come from a country where a majority of married women were housewives to one where women work at Western levels, are increasingly present in high-level politics, and, who could’ve guessed it? are starting to agitate against sexual harassment. Big #metoo demonstration in Tokyo these days, I’m told.

    As for immigration, Japan has more than 2 million foreigners working there, and it’s steadily growing. They won’t bring the yearly 200,000 brown men that the Japanese Business Association has repeatedly asked for; but they’ll get there. To their credit, working conditions given to foreigners are so nasty that most of them end up leaving by their own accord way before their contract expires. US State Department reports, and those of their affiliated NGOs have been loudly haranguing Japan about this, so it could change with time, but I don’t see Japan starting an immigrant welfare bureaucracy like Western countries have. They don’t have the money.

    Don’t see thee problem with agitating against sexual harassment. It might have made sense in the USA back in the 1950s for example. But if it runs off the rails into fantasy territory as it’s done in the USA in recent decades, that’s a different matter.

    Abe is refreshingly explicit that he doesn't plan on opening up to mass immigration.

    Japan at the moment has black African illegal aliens working in construction, but by being illegal, and black in a country with approximately zero black citizens, they can be easily rounded up and expelled in the future.

    Other foreign workers are from Brazil and the Philippines. Japan sent a bunch of Japanese to Brazil post-war since they could barely feed the population. They worked in agriculture and had a terrible time, but their descendants have a preferential visa status and come to work here.

    In addition, there are a lot of Filipinos, mostly women. I don't know what their IQ is, but they are a pretty good class of immigrant overall. Ther are reasonably smart, the mix of Filipino with Japanees produces a mostly Japanese-looking but very attractive racial mix (many actresses and models), and they also work in bars, especially in the depopulated-of-women countryside, serving as wives for men there, often older men, and they don't mind getting knocked up and producing and raising kids.

    Abe is refreshingly explicit that he doesn’t plan on opening up to mass immigration.

    Japan–and most Asian countries–are fairly resolute about not permitting themselves to be trashed. Which just makes the full-court press from the NYT and its ilk all the more risible. They stamp their little feet and call names but it doesn’t seem to affect the Asians they way it’s supposed to.

    Gunboats with nukes facilitate a whole different kind of diplomacy than that which Commodore Perry had at his disposal. For the rising diplomatic class* at Foggy Bottom there’s not much difference between “but genocide!” and “but racism!”.

    We’ll see who rules Japan as they take over.

    * – and, alas, gunboat captains and their commanders!

    Japan lacks a mass media consumerism market. Let a!one a female driven one. They will be fine.

    Meh. Insofar as devastating losses go, this one doesn’t even compare to 2015 when Serena got roundly beaten by the unranked Italian, Roberta Vinci (thus setting up the only women’s final in recent memory where both contestants seemed like normal, healthy, athletic-within-reason young women), if only because that loss denied Serena her one and only crack at a Grand Slam – anything’s possible, but the likelihood she’ll get that close again is pretty remote.

    If this loss has any legs it’ll be because of Serena’s genuinely-scary meltdown (picture a black female of those proportions going bull-goose looney on someone in a crowded subway car… in fact, this might easily become one of Steve’s laws of observation re Modern White Guys, to wit: the shriller and more strident the defense of Serena’s mau-mau antics, the likelier they’d be to shit their pants were she to vent her rage on them).

    It is not sufficiently appreciated that there were Jewish synagogues and Nestorian churches as far east as China during the 1st millenium.

    And then Muslims came.

    Not at all. Temper tantrums by athletes is not reserved to one particular race or ethnic group. Besides, she’s the Japanese version of Tiger Woods.

    Before this next HBD pep rally gets rolling along and then devolves into high school war stories and videos of rock bands.... doesn't the behavior of Serena Williams typify the entitled, bullying culture of her entire country?

    I remember when "USA!" was proud to field an Olympic basketball team without NBA players -- until they lost. Then it was time to change the standards to ensure victory. (I've since walked even farther away, but didn't an NBA-laden "Dream Team" come up short, too, losing out to a better style of team play and offenses that could do more than travel-n-dunk?) If "we" don't win, then something or someone must have unfairly kept "us" from "our" rightful place in the world.

    You guys love that Serena Williams is black, but you're deluded if you think that the rest of the world draws such distinctions.

    Japan will be wise to continue limiting the importation of black, brown, white, and every other hue and decadence of Exceptional Nation.

    Could you give a bit more detail about what happened to her apart from the Williams tantrum ? Or did Williams do/say something to her ?

    I think he means the crowd booing Osaka after she won.

    Naomi seems lovely to me.
     
    Lovely? I'd say one of the problems with the Osaka propaganda campaign is simply that she is unattractive.

    Not ugly, just ... not attractive. Most even "average" girls are attractive at 20, because ... they are 20! Osaka is far enough below average in looks that that is not the case. (I don't think she's a full SD below average--at that level in the US now you're dealing with the fatty problem which is making huge numbers of young American women unappealing.)

    I think nglaer is using a more holistic criterium for “lovely”, which includes her more quiet and polite demeanor; Osaka may not be pretty, but her she behaved better than Serena Williams, making her much more lovable.

    ...but Nippon ain’t “going back”, if you catch my drift
     
    I'm not sure of the context here, but I notice the "we won" argument becoming more common.

    When the complaint is that the presence of Africans degrades civilizational indices, the latest tactic is to announce, "too bad; we won; we're not going back, and expect more of us."

    We used to be propagandized that everyone is equal, with a drift that the low will become high. Now it is just becoming a demographic numbers game.

    Of course, numbers are everything.

    It is something immediately obvious to someone like me living in a multi-ethnic democracy. Democracies inevitable decline to “putting my people in power”. It is infuriating and what it is.

    Y'all need to visit R18 or at least JAV library or something. Hate to be the one to break it but Nippon ain't "going back", if you catch my drift...

    Meta-trolling over Steve's trolling aside, this obsession with Japan's immigration policy as pathetic as the obsession with Nubia and Egypt some Blacks have. Even if Japan never lets in a single migrant how does that help you?

    'cause obviously, even if you tried to move there then, per the rules of your imagination you would not be let in.

    I’m just glad that when the west becomes just like the middle east, only colder, there will at least be one place in the world where civilization remains.

    Ms. Osaka’s loveliness ain’t hubba-hubba. It derives from her lithe youth and subdued demeanor under pressure, that brings out the protective instinct in men. Not that she wouldn’t be way mo hotta wif a whole lotta Jeri Curl an some ho rags.

    The real news here is the opportunity for exploitation. Just as the Fired One, or as he is known to my people, Big Hair Who Kneels, has been conscripted to promote Big Shoe, it gets potentially mo better.
    If the similarly oppressed Ms. Serena Williams could join BHWK in the new ad campaign, we might have a product far greater than Kapernike. We could have SIR KAPERNIKE. Kneel and be Knighted!

    A new chivalry, a new regency, a new official footware of BLM and ANTIFA. More employment (for Chinese workers), more money (for corporate leeches), more stuff (to steal).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese-Jewish_common_ancestry_theory

    The Japanese-Jewish common ancestry theory (日ユ同祖論 Nichiyu Dōsoron) is a fringe theory that appeared in the 17th century as a hypothesis which claimed the Japanese people were the main part of the ten lost tribes of Israel. A later version portrayed them as descendants of a tribe of Jewish Nestorians. Some versions of the theory applied to the whole population, but others only claimed that a specific group within the Japanese people had descended from Jews.
     
    Are you sure Ryooichi Ueda is not one of those?

    Oh, the ‘Japan = Lost Tribe of Israel’ is a fun theory.

    Allegedly one of the Emperor’s Three Sacred Treasures has “YHVH” written on it. If you squint in just the right way….

    The Japanese “Touhou Project” games allude to it by having the 5th boss in Mountain of Faith be a miko from the Moriya (= Moriah) shrine who fights by throwing Old Testament miracles at you.

    Japan’s government policy isn’t the issue. Even if the Japanese state doesn’t have open borders policy, Japanese women have an Open Beavers policy. They go around the world and have kids with other men. As long as those women are Japanese citizens, their kids also count as citizens.
