    Meh, too much irony for an honest man.

    No one has the ability to jerk off this hard about bad employment prospects for white men as MPC’ers. Too smart and effete for their own good. Too dumb to realize that the binary they perceive in so called poltards are valid career paths for those that can make it.

A couple of giant black guys working as hod carriers and one semi retarded Mexican cleaning up and burning the trash. Everyone else, including the crew that smoothed out the yard and did the grass, was white.

    White Core America will soon remove from power the evil JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire. White Core America is about power politics, not scrounging for scraps nor employment prospects nor opportunities nor jobs. The employment prospects and opportunities and jobs will be controlled by White Core America.

    White Core America will soon be the new ruling class of the American Empire, and White Core America will control the land and the electronics and the military.

    Monetary policy and mass immigration have created a situation where there is no economy, only asset bubbles and debt.

    White Core America will implode the asset bubbles in real estate and stocks and bonds and there will be a complete and total debt repudiation of most government and private debt. The debt weapon millstone will be lifted from the young White Core Americans and it will be placed upon the backs of those who have benefited from that debt.

    White Core American leadership finds the continuity bias of the baby boomers and older generations to be laughable. Your evil, filthy financial and political scams are at an end. Your inter-generational violence will be stopped.

    The answer to 1984 is 1066.

    White Core Americans are the Normans and the JEW/WASP ruling class are the Saxons — Senlac Hill is on the horizon.

    MPC is an acronym for an internet forum called ‘My Posting Career’. It is well known for its nihilism and fondness for obtuse irony, as well as boosterism of Donald Trump.

    /pol/ is the ‘Political’ board (section) of the anonymous imageboard 4chan (although other imageboards such as 8chan have similarly named boards). The exact political opinions of the userbase is hard to gage because of its anonymity and irony, however here it is probably a derogatory way of referring to a white nationalist or someone with views which would be considered conventional for a white nationalist.

    Mpc is my posting career a right wing website/ forum which was free to view before charlottesville but which has now been changed to application only. You have to provide a real name and a real email address as well as pay a nominal fee to join. I used to browse before it was made private and it was quite good. The webmaster who started it and keeps it online is Brian Uecker alias Pleasureman a bitter generation x Information technology drone who does a good job of keeping out millenial neets and wannabe nazis-hence the poltards.

    POL is politically correct a subforum on the 4chan imageboard website. It is where most of the right wing memes and really outrageous ideas are generated. It usually picks up on and comes out with bits of information that really get quite big later on for example 4chan pol came up with the npc meme (meant to represent liberals as faceless drones incapable of thinking for themselves). Similarly My posting career invented/popularised the term cuckservative.

    So basically Poltards are millenial neets/wannabe nazis (4 chan pol combined with retards) and Mpcers are generation x would be intellectuals who regard themselves as too sophisticated for unironic nazism.

    Amusingly Pleasureman often accuses Sailer of browsing his forum and stealing his ideas while going through periods where he idolises/disparages him.

    ‘Fat Sex Therapist’ compares fitness to Nazism, dieting to rape

    Fatness is health, dieting is sexual assault, and fitness is a white supremacist Nazi science – so stated a self-described ‘Fat Sex Therapist” at a college talk. Commenters were shocked, but the anti-fitness backlash is growing.

    Sonalee Rashatwar, the therapist in question, delivered her polemic in a two-hour lecture at St. Olaf College, Minnesota last week. Puzzlingly, the lecture was hosted by the university’s Wellness Center, in conjunction with the Women’s and Gender Studies Department.

    Except that college grads make way more than blue collar guys. 1.5x – 2x as much. They also get to work in a clean office, instead of breathing in toxic fumes or unclogging feces.

    When your blue collar friends get laid off during the next downturn, they’ll go a while with little (if any) income. That’s how these supposedly cyclical industries work. Your friends also have to buy their own health insurance and pay into their 401K plan. When they get hurt, as most blue collar guys do at some point, the workman’s comp won’t make up for lost income.

    Posters here say that blue collar trades are well-paid because their plumber claims to make $150,000/yr. Nobody here ever claims that their 150 IQ black friend disproves the Bell Curve.

    Your friends are outliers.

    California may be on the verge of eliminating single-family zoning statewide. This is huge. And it’s a sign of how quickly the politics around housing and land use have shifted in just the last year. On Wednesday, a key committee signed off on Senate Bill 50 — San Francisco Sen. Scott Wiener’s bill to allow denser, taller housing around transit and in communities with lots of jobs. As part of the negotiations, Wiener agreed to merge his proposal with Senate Bill 4 by Sen. Mike McGuire (D-Healdsburg) and the result includes one very big change: Single-family houses could be converted to four-unit buildings, by right, anywhere in the state.

    Underrecognized phenomenon: Collapsing birthrates in the United States have raised the value of low-skilled labor similar to what immigration restriction would achieve.

    Counter-intuitively, despite (or indeed, quite possibly because of) the “white death”/”white despair” phenomenon, life is becoming better for a certain subset of working class whites. Given a fixed amount of immigration and dropping birthrates across all races, the value of their labor grows every day.

  71. Is it Håkan? Are we dealing with a Welsh Viking here?

    Lots of fascinating info is found in the Vikings chapter of Karin Bojs’s My European Family: The First 54,000 Years. Eg. the portion of Viking mitochondrial ancestry decreases rapidly once away from Scandinavia, but not so much the Y-chromosomes; she compares the Shetlands, the Orkneys, and the Hebrides. Maybe half the mtDNA of Iceland is Celtic. Naughty Nordics!

    She also notes that Scandinavian writers concentrate on the homebody Vikings, their culture and crafts, while those writing in English, French, etc., paint a bloodier picture. The Norsemen chose to attack monasteries, where the monks were armed with pens rather than swords. Great short-term tactics, terrible long-term PR. Less is known about their adventures in Russia, but at least an Arab or two caught them in the act and wrote it down.

    She also comes to the probable conclusion that a Scottish ancestress of hers about 1000 years ago was taken to Sweden as a slave girl. There are other possibilities: the girl could have been a mere social climber, or part of a small Viking colony. But most likely she was stolen or bought.

    I only read the one chapter, but it’s not surprising from that why the book won a top literary prize in her homeland:

    STASIS REBORN — THE GERMAN STATE UNVEILS THE NATIONAL OFFICE FOR REPORTING INTERNET “SMUGGLING” (AS IN CONTRABAND INFORMATION)
    Anon has:
    The original article is in German but google translate works okay. Here are some excerpts.

    Europol has asked for the removal of internet content in almost 100,000 cases. The companies concerned are responding to these requests to a considerable extent. The BKA has now set up a reporting center, which has sent almost 6,000 messages since its brief existence and cooperates closely with the police agency. It is also about “Schleusungskriminalität”.

    Schleusungskriminalität, translated by google as “smuggling crime” means criminal content “smuggled” in from another country (!)

    The Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) maintains a reporting office for the removal of Internet content. Accordingly, the “national Internet Referral Unit” has already been in operation since October last year. Since then, the BKA has already addressed 5,895 reports of suspected criminal content to Internet companies. This writes the Federal Ministry of the Interior in response to a small request .

    With the new department, the Federal Government is urging the EU Regulation to prevent the spread of online terrorist content. The bill was presented last September by the European Commission , after only a few months and thus in a hurry, the European Parliament had agreed last week on its position . The aim is to finalize the regulation as soon as possible.

    Central to the proposed regulation are very short deadlines within which Internet companies have to remove content. In addition, the Commission requests upload filters for already known “terrorist” material as well as “proactive measures” from the platform operators to independently identify such content in advance.

    Internet Archive (archive.org) is mentioned:

    Where it can lead, if an assessment of possibly criminal content is left to the police and not the judiciary, the case of the Internet Archive has shown two weeks ago. Via the IRMa the operators of the huge web archive received a list of addresses with alleged “terrorist propaganda”. Although the relevant EU regulation is not yet negotiated and therefore not valid, the ordering authority should set an hour of cancellation.

    Behind the message to the Internet Archive was the French Department of Cybercrime. It is disturbing, which contributions are classified there as “terrorist”. According to the web archive, these include book archives with millions of texts published in the public domain. For at least 550 of the URLs, the creators point out on their blog that they can by no means be considered “terrorist”.

    These [Jerries] are really going all out. And if you think this is only a Euro[pean] problem, think again. They have … realized that the free speech laws in the US are too strong, so they have chosen to attack the internet via the EU. But it will affect the entire internet [tech companies often deal wirh this sort of thing by tying to just avoid the informational problem, which effectively makes the regulation of one market universal].

    This is interesting.

    I am not exactly a true believer. I grew up as a Unitarian, but I haven’t gone to church in decades. I’m not religious enough to be a Unitarian.

    I do know my ancestors were Christians, and for the past few centuries they were Protestants.

    On one hand we see the “secular Jews”, non-religious persons whose ancestors followed the Jewish faith standing up against persecution of Jews.

    On the other hand, we almost never see “secular Christians” standing up against persecution of Christians. Or even main line Christians in some situations.

    I get that among the multi-cultural big city crowd, being a religious Christian isn’t cool. I’ve been part of the big city intellectual scene.

    I also grew up in the Bible Belt, and had to deal with Christians who ranged from truly wonderful people to truly obnoxious people. On one hand were the observant Christians who would give you the shirt off their backs because of their philios, or whatever they call Christian Love. On the other hand were the obnoxious “Church Lady” types who made life miserable for those of us who were not true believers.

    And there is also wanting to avoid the conflicts amongst Christians. There is the old story of Christopher Hitchens crossing the Ireland/Norther Ireland border and being asked if he were Catholic or Protestant. He replied he was an Atheist. The border guard asked him if he were a Catholic Atheist or a Protestant Atheist.

    Or I remember during the Serbia/Croatia conflict some Greeks I knew were strongly supporting Serbia because Orthodox.

    So some secular folks of Christian heritage just find it uncool to worry about Christians.

    The good part is we secular types can avoid the intramural Christian conflicts.

    The bad part is many secular types think they can avoid clashes between Christians and groups that persecute Christians. Because when the ISIS Inquisition comes along, they think an atheist of Christian background is worse than a practicing Christian.

    But then secular Christians don’t expect some sort of ISIS Inquisition.

    Blue collars who make that kind of money belong to unions that provide health insurance and 401ks.

    It’s true that workmen’s comp doesn’t make up for lost income. But state disability disburses half gross income. So if they make $2,000, $1,800 a week they get $900 or $1,00o a week no taxes.

    Yes there are layoffs. But those layoffs are planned for. The best thing about the trades is that if they’re lucky an apprenticeship class will open up before they’re 21. So an early start in an adult career and no student debt.

    Office workers get laid off too. And office workers have to sit through diversity training and deal with female HR. No employer is going to pay hourly wage workers to do nothing but sit through diversity training.

    Every occupation has its good and bad elements. Surgeons nurses and dentists end up with as many orthopedic problems as construction workers.

    One group that will do extremely well if they can get into the union is electricians along with electrical
    Engineers. The amount of work generated by the environmentalists mandating all this earth friendly lights automatically turning off and on is phenomenal.

    It’s a bonanza they’re even hiring White American male electrical engineers there’s so much work.

    Buy stock in copper mines and companies that make copper wire cables and electrical fittings. Unfortunately the factories are all in China.

    The refitting will go on for a long long time. The liberals want every non residential building bridge etc fitted with environmental electricity.

    The best thing about the trades is the financial benefits of an early start on adult life. Early home ownership early investments longer contribution to 401k and social security early parenthood meaning the kids are grown when parents are 45 instead of 65.

    Of course that only happens if you’re accepted into an apprenticeship program early and get your contractors license early.

    A 4chan thread is ideally supposed to be substantive, to have some kind of source, archived link, argument, and context, and the image illustrating it should be relevant. Bots spam “one-line writing prompts,” often with impossibly dense nonsense questions that would be answered in ten seconds of basic research. They also sometimes put something screamingly wrong to provoke “correction.” There was a bot on the weapons board early today asking about the Indian military.

    Or, you can own the apartment block and charge the immigrants a fortune. They can always crowd a few more in to pay the rent increases. And none of them, legal or illegal mind rats cockroaches etc. and most don’t know the existence of health and building inspectors until the 3rd generation.

    That near transit thing is a hypocritical abomination. Anywhere within about 3/4 mile of any bus subway train line 4 or 5 story block long buildings with 4 and 4 bedroom apartments are being built. But this isn’t America. Those 4 bedroom apartments won’t house 2 parents and 2-5 kids. They will house 40 immigrants, at least half adults with cars. 2 car garages per apartment but at least 6 up to maybe 12 cars per apartment. There’s one near me, full
    Of Chinese UCLA students. 18 in a 4 bedroom apartment a 2 car garage and maybe 7 or 8 cars parked on the street.

    And they won’t walk 3 blocks to a convenient 15 minute city bus to UCLA. Nor will they walk a mile to the nearest UCLA shuttle bus parking lot

    No, they take Uber cars that double park on that narrow street with parking on both sides in morning rush hour. They don’t wait out front or in the lobby either. They wait in the apartment till the Uber driver calls them and come down while traffic is backed up behind several double parked Uber cars.

    I believe that someday land owners and contractors will get O interest loans from the state if they promise to build housing for illegal aliens.

    Construction workers don’t all work building new buildings. Many work in the same place at the same job for 40 or 45 years.

    Many city building inspectors are plumbers, electricians carpenters and other trades. They inspect the electricity plumbing roofs dry wall everything . They are civil service employees never laid off.

    Many licensed tradesmen electricians carpenters plumbers work 40 years for hospitals colleges school districts high rises government buildings their entire lives.

    Often they do much of the remodeling work which is ongoing in hospitals and universities and office buildings. It’s cheaper and more efficient to have those workers on staff instead of always calling in outside contractors. As well as union trades men, most have their general or specialized contractor license as well so they can get the permits file blueprints with the city as well.

    Bridges have electricians painters welders inspectors and others who work on that bridge their entire career.

    Who do you think puts up partitions installs doors and electricity and new bathrooms when a new tenant moves into a high rise office building? It’s often the guys who spend their working lives in that building. Why would the owner of a high rise go through the trouble and expense of outside contractors for new tenants instead of having licensed tradesmen/ contractors right there who know the building and can quickly remodel for new tenants?

    Other than early start on adult earnings home ownership and investments the next best thing about the trades is paid overtime. Professional and managerial workers get paid for a 40 hour a week salary even if they work 60 hours which sadly is becoming the norm.

    Tradesmen’s work can’t be adversely judged by some black witch affirmative action supervisor either. It’s either done well or not. No HR nazis observing your attitude, tone of voice way you answer the phone.

    In this day of outright prosecution of White men, construction work is better. Often no women to make false sex accusations. And no one can criticize a perfect job of installing or repairing a physical thing. So no harassment about how you smile or your attitude and the rest of the HR prosecution of White men.

    Another good thing about the trade unions is that you don’t have to through 3 interviews begging for a new job and worry about the exact shade of your lipstick or white or blue shirt.

    If you’re laid off and decide you want a new job, just sign up on the internet. Go down to the hall 7 am next day

    the jobs are handed out strictly on your place on the list. If there are 60 on the list and there are 50 jobs that day and you’re number 45 you get a job.

    No Groveling to some black HR witches. No groveling to HR fags. No need to recite your commitment to diversity inclusion.

    You’re merit qualified, you’re next on the list and you get the job. You’re a man, not a beggar groveling to black women and gays to get a job.

    All that matters is your state license, not your love of blacks gays and diversity.

    I’m from the Bay Area / Silicon Valley and live there half the year. No tradesman or woman would be treated as James D’Amore was. He wouldn’t even have been ordered to write an essay about inclusion if he were a trades man, let alone get fired for what he wrote

    Mountain climber Galen Rowell wrote a book about Tibet in the 1980s that theorized that the 1962 Sino-Indian War, which happened at the same time as the Cuban Missile Crisis, contributing to the terror of the times, was due to the Chinese not actually wanting to conquer India, but to facilitate repression of Tibetan rebels to build a road that ventured into disputed high-altitude territory.

    More generally, this is an example of a widespread issue of how to draw a border. One appealing choice is to run the border along a continental divide between two watersheds. This has the advantage of not negotiating each inch of the border because you can just let geology make the decision — if rain flows one way it’s one side of the border, the other way the other side. Plus, it’s easier to reconcile your country to giving up some border land because the terrain is usually too high and too severe to be worth much (unless it has valuable minerals).

    The downside, however, is that the indigenous people of the mountains typically live on both sides of the crest. I call this the Ossetian Problem after the Caucasus group that live in both what was defined by the USSR as Russia and Georgia.

    The Himalayas feature one of the sharpest racial divides in the world, with East Asians on the north and South Asians on the south. However, the racial/cultural divide isn’t along the crest but in the southern foothills at about a mile altitude. North/above that are Tibetan East Asians, like the famous Sherpa, who are adapted to high altitudes. But they don’t like to live in the lowlands because they are more susceptible to tropical diseases.

    This causes troubles.

It rains where I live and I spent about ten years fixing, painting, tarring and patching my sloped tile roof and flat asphalt roof. My house (obviously) has two kinds of roofs. I messed around with lots of tar. You clean that shit off your hands with diesel fuel which is essentially kerosene.

    Many White Core young pioneers with oversized student debt from fashionable Tier 1 colleges enjoyed the upgraded version of the American middle-class lifestyle, affordable due to the wealth concentration of their top-20%er dual-earner parents, with their two, above-firing, high-paying, absenteeism-friendly, family-friendly, crony-parent jobs per household.

    Fewer White Core middle-aged Xers ever ascended to the middle class since it narrowed by half so that dual-earner parents could keep two of the few household-supporting jobs under one roof, ramping up the materialism standard for the middle class while halving the size of the college-educated middle class, all in the name of ever-bigger, Barbie-feminist-princess Dream Houses and a vacation to Europe every few months, with lots of excused time off from work (for the kiddos) so that the dual-earner parents did not have to sacrifice anything.

    Even though they did not benefit from increased job prospects post-graduation any more than most Millennial degree holders, Xers still had to pay off their college loans. College prices have inflated ridiculously since about 2004, but no more than other major expenses like rent. Millennials deserve a break that accounts for the price-gouging difference, especially in state universities that are not for-profit businesses.

    But they should not get off Scott Free, just because they are in the sex-and-reproduction phase of life, when previous generations had to repay high loans of all kinds, not just college loans but business loans. They did it in lieu of saving for retirement, sacrificing luxuries like bubble-inflated posh-zipcode houses, frequent and lengthy vacations, constant dining out and private schools for all of the little White Core munchkins.
