  • Here’s something I wrote back in the last century:

    RAMONES – Do You Remember Rock ‘N Roll Radio

    Do you remember Hullabaloo,
    Upbeat, Shindig and Ed Sullivan too?.
    Do You Remember Rock’N’Roll radio?
    Do You Remember Rock’N’Roll radio?

    Do you remember Murray the K,
    Alan Freed, and high energy?
    It’s the end, the end of the 70′s.
    It’s the end, the end of the century.

    Do you remember lying in bed with your covers
    Pulled up over your head? Radio playin’ so no one can see.
    We need change, we need it fast before rock’s just part
    Of the past. ‘Cause lately it all sound the same to me.

    Oh-oh. Will you remember Jerry Lee,
    John Lennon, T. Rex and Ol’ Moulty?
    It’s the end, the end of the 70′s.
    It’s the end, the end of the century.

  • A big danger for freedom and civil rights is the ever increased government monitoring of financial transactions for purposes of identifying money laundering, sanctions compliance, terrorist funding, tax avoidance and so on, combined with bank consolidation.

    As this evolves into a government-bank industrial complex and cash transactions are eliminated over time, access to the electronic financial infrastructure of the government-bank industrial complex will be required for ordinary people to survive.

    Since there is no tool the SJWs will not use in order to crush dissent, expect in the future the ability to access the financial infrastructure to be denied to political opponents. Tucker Carlson discussed a little of this on his last show with Mark Steyn who informed him that Paypal has denied VDare access to its system.

    How true!

    Thank God someone other than me is now saying it.

    It’s not entirely cargo cult thinking: there is some truth to it. Politicians do reward allies with jobs and in other ways, and there are blacks who benefited from Obama’s presidency. But you’ve got to be in the game to benefit, and most people aren’t.

    Urban blacks probably remember some patronage benefits from black mayors, which may have unrealistically raised expectations of Obama.

    The concluding paragraph of the Eisenhower letter offers:

    From deep conviction, I simply say this: a nation of men of Lee’s calibre would be unconquerable in spirit and soul. Indeed, to the degree that present-day American youth will strive to emulate his rare qualities, including his devotion to this land as revealed in his painstaking efforts to help heal the Nation’s wounds once the bitter struggle was over, we, in our own time of danger in a divided world, will be strengthened and our love of freedom sustained.

  • It has nothing to do with the past greatness of white men or the fact that there are still too many white CEOs. Squawking about white greatness is a sign of insecurity, actually.

    In fact, the western share of global income has been rapidly declining since the Second World War and its no longer laughable to suggest that a non-western country like China may be the most important country in the near future or even now. There are other suggestive measures (e.g., the West’s declining share of global patents).

    Instead, the focus on the rights of fringe groups is the West’s way of asserting that it’s still in the vanguard of moral progress. Look at how regressive non-white country China or India is for not recognizing trans-x-ism! How uncivilized! Even though western countries only got around to recognizing them three years ago, etc.

  • @Mr. Hack
    Trying to negate or even belittle the history of the Ukrainian nation in the 21st century is beyond the pale of sanity, Anatoly. You do believe that the world is not flat? To put it succinctly, to try to relegate the history of Ukraine to some nefarious plot put into motion by Poles, Austrians and Hungarian generals is at the very least intellectually dishonest, and at most an exercise in irredentism gone terribly and comically awry (are you serious?). But then again, you'd have to admit that you're nothing more than a supreme dilittente when it comes to knowing anything at all about Ukrainian history, never having read even one single book devoted to the subject matter. At least according to your own very detailed log of books that you've read: http://akarlin.com/reviews/:-)

    So, what we have in effect, is somebody that knows very little about Ukrainian history spewing out nonsensical sovok type tropes, fed to him by??...

    Give me a break, Anatoly - you can do better!

    I wish Ukrainians and Americans discovered each other much earlier, because it’s obvious that the affection that these 2 nations feel for each other is deep and genuine. I wish they discovered each other, say circa 1941 – right around the time when the Ukrainians were welcoming the Germans with flowers.

    And what a wasted gesture that turned out to be. If the Ukrainians knew back then how much the Americans cared for them, they could have sent those flowers to them.

    But then again, I doubt it that all the flowers in the world would have made any difference in persuading the Americans to do anything for their brothers in Ukraine.

    “The certain effect of praising the crazy left will be to produce a far crazier left. This will be the elite’s legacy in its handling of Charlottesville.”

    With so many CEOs abandoning Trump’s advisory councils they’ve opened up the possibility of a conservative backlash against the business lobby.

    Another take on Spencer. Excerpt:

    First, a disclaimer: I sympathize broadly with Unite The Right’s stated goals, including preserving the statue of General Lee and keeping whites from becoming a minority in our own country. I also know, like, and admire some of the people involved in CTR, namely Chris Cantwell and Pax Dickinson. That said, what happened yesterday was an absolute unmitigated nuclear disaster. The planning was amateurish, the messaging was unfocused, the optics were horrendous, the expectations were naive, and the outcome was all too predictable. To keep this short, I’ll use bullet points.

    • This had the fingerprints of its planners all over it, and that’s not a good thing. Richard Spencer is a four-star Dunning-Kruger case whose unshakably bourgeois mentality makes him think he’s going to be the guy who makes White Nationalism socially respectable among the cultural elite. Instead, he consistently underestimates his opposition and ends up looking like a goofbag over and over again, which is made worse by the fact that he never learns a damn thing from any of his many, many mistakes. This also had the fingerprints of TRS all over it (with the unfortunate Mike Enoch as its in-person ambassador). TRS’s schtick is simply to be as childishly edgy as possible, in the belief that the day can be won by indulging in the adolescent compulsion to shock.
     

    The full post starts off well enough, but increasingly ratchets down into Chicken Little hysteria and defeatism.

    The lede buried in all this hype: Spencer and his LARPing pals are doing excellent work testing the Government’s upholding (or lack thereof) of the First Amendment. Without the officially pariah White Nationalists attending Unite The Right, the strategically idiotic Virginia authorities wouldn’t have bothered to yank the permit in a classic heckler’s veto move. But they yanked it. BIG MISTAKE.

    All Spencer and company has to do now is push for more rallies in more public venues and watch as government officials try their damnedest to suppress the First Amendment while conservatives (ha!) like Mitt Romney point and sputter in an unconscious attempt to prove that not only is a nation of protected white lineage verboten, the ‘proposition nation’ is finished as well.

    But I’m not too worried just yet. I believe the ‘grownups’ on the right and left who support the Constitution will pull back from the frenzy and re-establish focus on protecting the First Amendment for all. One can do that while personally denouncing whatever ideology is deemed deplorable.

    If there is no effective Bill of Rights, civic nationalism dies a sudden death.

    Encrypt your hard disk with a 4096 bit key.
     
    Can you do that on a kindle? Is it worth it?

    You don’t need a Kindle to have eBooks. I have thousands, all in epub format, not mobi. My eReader is a Sony not a Kindle. I store my eBooks not only in my reader but on thumb drives, external hard drives, etc. I even have some on data disks and uploaded to cloud storage. Occasionally, I print one out as a hobby project, selecting my own paper and typeface, creating my own illustrations, designing and making my own covers and hand-binding it in personal patterns. Such unique books make great gifts.
    Nobody can take my eBooks away from me, bowdlerize them, or do anything else to them. They are as much mine as any paper book.

  • The string-pullers aren’t O’Brien-powerful. I think this is what’s happening though.

    There are a lot of young people who are angry because the economy is hollowed out, inequality is spiking, and at the same time they are more isolated than previous generations thanks to the decline of religion, and the breakdown of family and other local institutions. They’re “bowling alone” except instead of bowling, they’re looking at their phones.

    Some of the economic hollowing out is due to automation, but a lot of it has been exacerbated by elite policies on trade and immigration. And of course elites have done damage to religion, etc. as well. There’s some cognitive dissonance on the part of young lefties that things could be such a mess after 8 years of Obama. So the elites need a distraction to focus their rage, which is why they’ve built Trump up as a monster — something no one considered him to be in 40 years of his previous, very public life. Remember, Trump has been nationally famous since the mid ’80s, and well-known in the media capital of the country since the late ’70s.

    The kind of monster Trump was painted as varied over the campaign — racist, sexist, etc. The one that got traction after his election victory was traitor — a man who conspired with Russia to hack the election. Notice you stopped hearing about that all of a sudden? The Nation put a bullet in that story last week; this week Trump is a monster because he allegedly didn’t condemn white supremacy vigorously enough after Charlottesville and pointed out that there were violent folks on both sides of that event.

    Thus a perpetual state of fear is ginned up about Trump. Michael Crichton wrote a didactic novel called State of Fear in the oughts where one professor character (knowing Crichton, probably paraphrasing a real sociologist) explains that a state of fear is used to control societies, and that’s why global warming alarmism began in earnest shortly after the Berlin Wall fell, diminishing the previous fear (of global nuclear war). The moral panic about white supremacism following the fizzling of the Russia collusion narrative seems to fit that pattern.

    Is there anything behind the upgrade from historical ret-conning to speculative fiction?

    There really does seem to be something in the air at the moment: one or two (?) African-American focused alternative histories on TV, the Black Panther movie (some comic-book sci-fi set in a futuristic, technologically-advanced Africa, I think) (and that what if computing had been founded by African-Americans? in The Atlantic — but who was that aimed at?).

    6. This leads me to believe that this move to retcon the history of human achievement will backfire horribly. …

    … the “diverse” masses will look at the increasing gap between the image that popular culture projects … and the squalid reality…

    … and starting blaming anyone other than themselves.

    Shifting from anti-white resentment (12 Years a Slave, The Birth of a Nation) to historical ret-conning of blacks succeeding despite whites (Hidden Figures) to imaginary, aspirational worlds of Diverse Awesomeness isn’t the safety valve they must think it is.

    Because the Black Panther hot take that reverberated around Black Internet was This is what Africa would look like if white people hadn’t destroyed it.

    There’s a self-awareness in the women complaining that all these role-model amazing scientist and businesswoman inspiration-porn stars make them feel like failures that seems lacking in those with “cargo-cult beliefs” (as in the post), and in the psychology that takes affirmative-action college students who couldn’t hack it and turns them into college activists.

    The guy running over the fat woman may have been solving a trolley problem, only "diversely," afraid for his life, an angry nazi, we just don't know. He may just have been nuts. We don't know.

    We do know that the guy organizing the whole affair was an Obama Supporter and behind Occupy Wall Street, which explains David Duke allowed to get in front of cameras and have Nazis and Klansmen being the face of the whole rally. No professional Alt-Right person would have allowed that; its exactly what a Soros paid operative would do and I tend to suspect Richard Spencer as well.

    Howard Jarvis he ain't -- a regular guy who got angry at one issue with a lifetime of working hard at a regular job.

    That said, Trump was pretty masterful and the logical outcome of all this not just tearing down Lee and Stonewall Jackson statues. [Lee freed his slaves all of them in the 1850s, and Jackson never had any being like his parents ardent Christian abolitionists.] Andrew Jackson will be next along with Mayor Rizzo and Teddy Roosevelt and Columbus. Then Jefferson and Washington.

    But where this all ends up is White Male Slavery, because of the money. Its clear Blacks will never earn enough to support themselves in a style above raw 1920's rural subsistence. Muslims, Mexicans, more Africans, Somalis etc. may be good at shooting "uppity" White women who don't know their place not wearing a burqua (Paging Officer Noor, Paging Officer Noor to the firing line, there is a non burqua'd infidel!). But they cost a lot of money also far more than they produce.

    THE ONLY way for the American system and European systems to keep producing the wealth to keep fatties with a fondness for Black dudes (that's all of them), Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, Africans, "men with gold chains" and various Chinese cheating schemes in the money is White Male Slavery.

    And I mean that literally. Only by enslaving each and every White male save those most rich and powerful and mobile -- beyond reach -- can the government/system pay off the ever growing demands AND population. Thus, Silicon Valley will have lots and lots of "diverse" White fattie ladies and Blacks and Muslims and Hispanic "coders" who will sit in offices and have meetings, and literally enslaved White men like Damore will be writing code while held in literal bondage by legalisms and various Supreme Court decisions affirming "muh Constitution" that yes using the Google browser binds ever White male to its non-paid service in perpetuity but no other group.

    Logically, that's where the statue tearing down ends -- in enslaving White men to pay for everyone else's upkeep and party. There will be "penalty" ankle bracelets or some such, to provide computer measured punishment for not enough code or craftsmanship or what have you produced. That is the aim and dream of pretty much everyone not a White man.

    Given that this is the aim; anything that prevents that from arriving is good; and nothing that enables it is good. White males must be ruthless in preventing that outcome; the aim is not Brazil since no one among the masses or middling ruling classes -- the petty government officials and mid level corporate managers and the like will permit THEIR living standards to decline. Rather it is our enslavement pure and simple that is at stake.

    No professional Alt-Right person would have allowed that; its exactly what a Soros paid operative would do and I tend to suspect Richard Spencer as well.

    There are no “professional alt-right” people, other than, perhaps, Jared Taylor. Not in the sense of: doing it full time, and having considerable experience doing it. The fact is, a lot of the alt-right guys, Spencer included, have no problem associating themselves with people like David Duke and Andrew Anglin. They do so with regularity. They think it is a plus – that it shows they’re not cucked and don’t give a damn what normies think. Actually, it’s an enormous handicap, and it will poison their movement and prevent most people from taking it seriously.

    Booker T. Washington's name came to mind when reading your Taki piece. Having shallow roots in America doesn't explain African Americans' current antipathy to the founders, and neither does the history of slavery, as the all the blacks who proudly kept the name of Washington shows (and not just as a last name: George Washington Carver, for example).

    As for Jews, in past decades, many Jews took pride in the handful of prominent Jews in early American history, such as Haym Solomon. Erdeley's allergy to Jefferson seems relatively new.

    Something else is happening. Maybe it's lefties trying to get ahead of the curve after all the cheerleading for post-white America over the last several years.

    If you are Elon Musk or Haim Saban, it might seem that getting women and non-whites to argue over who gets credit for achievements of the past or the heroic roles in action movies is a good distraction from attempts to asset strip the most valuable pieces of the western economy out of resentment and jealousy.
     
    I don't understand why you mention Elon Musk in this context. Can you expand on that, Steve? It seems to me that Musk is set upon building real, tangible industries that can bring benefit to the country. His labor policies might be a tad exploitative, but he is a real innovator and industrialist, not just a media or financial hustler.

    Amended: I see now my question should be directed at Irish Paleo, given that he wrote that, not Steve.

    Elon Musk is an adherent of a nefarious ideology (religion???) known as transhumanism.

    Most of his companies cannot survive without continued government subsidies, though I will credit that he has partially delivered on some of his promises. He needs leftist pet groups working for him, as a shield against both leftist labor agitation/taxation, or journalists prying into what he really believes.

    Except the picture linked to, which purports to show the car being struck before it accelrated, does not show that. It shows somebody taking a whack at it, after it has accelerated, and just before it plowed into the crowd. This video, at the 0:30 minute mark, shows the car moving down the street at a fair clip for some considerable distance and then plowing into the crowd; nobody was trying to hit it until it was already an imminent threat.

    I stand by my hypothesis that this "Tear Down Dixie Symbols Now!" movement is a deliberate attempt by the O'Brien-types of the Left to provoke whites to demonstrate out in the open as whites in protest.

    If they do, the BLM and Antifa thugs attack them and disrupt them, the corporate media portrays whitey as the attackers, the Goodpeople condemn them and are discouraged from joining them, leading to less unification of whites as whites seek not to be associated with such "evil" and white demonstrators avoid demonstrations to avoid assault, thus improving Left-wing chances in future elections and cultural domination.

    If whites don't demonstrate against it, they are inherently demoralized and put into fear as their heroes fall, just as Krsitallnacht demoralized and put into fear enemies of the Nazis.

    Remember: Trump won by unifying white voters and giving them a source of pride and courage. This terrified the Left.

    If you think this is all nonsense, look at how in the last week: thanks to the Charlottesville ambush, we here on the Alt-Right have gone from talking about white identity politics as being ok to having to (once again) decry Nazis and say it's all about free speech. If it hadn't been for Trump's second presser on the matter we'd be further demoralized and separated; at least now we can point to Antifa and BLM as bad guys and have people listen.

    We're already being disassociated by this plan. We should not be punching right or disavowing this, but the situation is forcing many of us to do so in our public lives.Just a few weeks ago I was able to broach some white identity politics ideas with relatives, while this week when I mentioned the same thing they screamed "Nazi!" at me and pointed at MSNBC droning on about the Klan burning churches to the ground.

    Booker T. Washington’s name came to mind when reading your Taki piece. Having shallow roots in America doesn’t explain African Americans’ current antipathy to the founders, and neither does the history of slavery, as the all the blacks who proudly kept the name of Washington shows (and not just as a last name: George Washington Carver, for example).
     
    I knew an old black guy named "Washington Jefferson" (I know this sounds like I made this up just for this, but no).

    I think in the 1960s the internal debate among blacks was whether to pursue full recognition of rights as Americans or whether to regard themselves as a nation-within-nation. The official history says that the Civil Rights movement was about a struggle for the former and we just haven't completely gotten there but I think the the reality is that the latter better approximates where black Americans who aren't the Conservatives' favorite black friends on Fox News are and have been. The Radicals won that debate and have influenced the telling of history to the younger generations. I think the Left always wanted it that way anyhow.

    Most people over, say thirty five years of age seem to sense that something really is different with blacks now as opposed to 20 years ago. There's less general good will and less desire to get along.

    ' [T]he South, we have been taught, was a viciously insensitive region, and the Southern cause in 1861 was nothing so much as the attempt to perpetuate the degradation of blacks through a system based on racial slavery. [ That's exactly what it was. ]

    ' Arguments can be raised to refute or modify the received account of Southern history now taught in our public schools and spread by leftist and neoconservative journalists. One can point to the fact that a crushing federal tariff falling disproportionately on Southern states contributed to the sectional hostilities [ because the Southern planters shipped vast amounts of slave grown cotton to England and vast amounts of manufactured/luxury goods back ?] that led to the Southern bid for independence. One can also bring up the willingness of Southern leaders to free blacks and even to put them in grey uniforms [ to use their slaves as cannon fodder in defense of slavery! ], as the price of the freedom that Southerners were seeking from Northern control. And even if one deplores slavery ... [ "even if" ... and you don't, obviously ... hope the Old South will rise again? In the lands the USA's military is devastating, laying waste to and making ripe for exploitation? Southerners have always been over-represented in the Imperial expeditionary/occupational armies of the USA. ] '

    Americans who live in Dixie are just like all other Americans. And all Americans hate slavery and the slave culture that flourished in the Old South ... and is flourishing again in the guise of low-wage slavery throughout the globalized neo-liberal empire and has now rolled back home. The only difference is that they are constantly called to the side of the Old South, by the political wedge driven by paleo- and neo-conservatives, as though the southerners of today had anything at all in common with the slave-holding oligarchs pre-Civil War.

    The Old South, reincarnated, is attempting to rise again. Globally. It was the Stars and Bars the neo-Nazis flew in Kiev along with their swastikas at the Maiden.

    Why is it the first and only video we saw for the first 24hrs or so was from the absolute most damning angle? What separates this from Zimmerman or any of the others is the multitude of people filming that day. The media chose which film to show American mass media consumers.

    This fact alone takes me about 99% of the way toward acquitting Fields. Like his apparent role model Dick Spencer, Fields appears to be a complete pussy who will always run rather than fight (but insists on his right to stand at a street corner shouting "gas the kikes!" in Brooklyn). So a moron pussy. But if we are going to bury society's failures, shouldn't we start with those robbing, assaulting, raping, and murdering on a constant basis? When it's safe for a woman, any woman (but especially say MY wife or daughter), to walk the streets of a major American city alone at night then I might have the energy to be worried about sexually ambiguous agitating idiots who happen to kill someone in a crowd trying to kill them.

    At this time, several highly qualified individuals have publicly stated that there’s “Not a chance”, and have given detailed explanations for their opinion.

    No expert testimonies about plane performance abilities will have any impact on a jury which saw the footage of planes hitting the towers. You would have to convince them what they saw was not real. But if you could convince them it was not real you do not need the experts on plane performance limitations. Instead you need experts on video GCI real time composition to which opposite experts will be claiming that strange effects are just normal and not infrequent results of pixelization and data compression quirks. The jury will not be able to tell the difference between the two sets of experts so they will go with the original belief that stemmed for them from watching the video and believing it was real when they watched it first time.

    The jury will not be able to tell the difference between the two sets of experts so they will go with the original belief that stemmed for them from watching the video and believing it was real when they watched it first time.

    Just like a politician feeding bullshit to their pet journalist, and then believing the resulting stories because they read them in the paper!

    Not sure what juries may have to do with an inquiry. Are you thinking of a lawsuit? Do juries sit on judicial inquiries in the US? More to the point, a real court or inquiry would be able to subpoena the data from Boeing’s wind-tunnel tests, and engineering data from the engine manufacturers. That would settle the matter of aircraft performance in a variety of conditions, including those ostensibly holding on 9/11. If that data shows the planes becoming uncontrollable, or unable to maintain speed, the matter is settled. Whatever videos and eyewitness accounts are available, the court would have a very close look at them before deciding whether they can be entered into evidence. If there remained a reasonable doubt about their provenance, they simply wouldn’t be entered into evidence and any jury wouldn’t have the opportunity to consider them in their deliberations. Isn’t that how it works?

    My take is that Beinart knows very well that Jefferson and Washington are next to be taken down. But it would be a bad tactical move to speak openly of it, yet. Still too many Whites, and they are not sufficiently cowed.

    The left has used the "Camel's nose in the tent" technique brilliantly in advancing its agenda. They play the long game.

    Ted Kennedy, speaking of the 1965 immigration bill opening borders to the 3rd world: "This bill not not impact the ethnic makeup of the USA."

    Lefties, 1980s: "Isn't all the ethnic food great? So much better than dull White food."

    Lefties, 1990s: "Nothing is changing. You're overreacting, White people."

    Lefties, 2000s: "We've always been a nation of immigrants. Immigrants from Somalia are more "American" than Americans born here.

    Lefties, Current Year: "America will be better when you're gone, White people."

His labor policies might be a tad exploitative, but he is a real innovator and industrialist, not just a media or financial hustler.

    Elon Musk is an adherent of a nefarious ideology (religion???) known as transhumanism.

    Most of his companies cannot survive without continued government subsidies, though I will credit that he has partially delivered on some of his promises. He needs leftist pet groups working for him, as a shield against both leftist labor agitation/taxation, or journalists prying into what he really believes.

    The movement to gerrymander voting districts to split the black vote, laws that seek to block cities imposing their own minimum wages, and the continual assault on voting rights all across the south---are policies put in place that allign with Neo-nazi, KKK, skinhead, Alt-Right, hateful thinking bigots who hide in the shadows to cowardly to come forward and openly express their equal but seperate views. Good people of all races and creeds are not fooled because Birther Trump denounces these hateful groups 3 days After the Charlottesville incident on TV.

    People are wondering if the whole thing was planned / staged, with dodgy details about leading event figures coming out, media deception about police actions etc ... Here's two short, doubt-inducing video exhibits to consider:

    Drone footage which makes the crash event look staged & fake, you see nearby streets amazingly empty except for the 'movie set' group gathered where the 'accident' happened, other streets blocked, a ready fire truck there doing the blocking ... 4min video here

    And re this car crash by 'James Fields', talented stunt-driver-in-reverse-gear, there is a bizarre live media encounter with 'Samantha Bloom, mother of James Fields' ... Note the fake vs sincere quality of voices, & the body language of 'mom' in her wheelchair, at the moment when she supposedly first learns from a media reporter live on camera, that her 'son' is accused of driving a car into a crowd & killing someone ... and see how quickly 'Samantha Bloom' chuckles & calmly shifts the topic ... bad actress with a poseur 'journalist'?... video 1min10sec
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN8owQR8d-M

    The woman died, the guy’s in jail.

    That ridiculous VIMEO video was made by a total moron who doesn’t understand the most basic facts of life, such as: protesters travel in groups. That’s the whole point of a protest. But these groups don’t live together, No, protesters have to *meet*, so they can march to the (or gather at a) destination *together*. So every protest has a *STAGING AREA* (well, almost every one, on occasion there is a spontaneous protest but they are quite rare). These staging areas are advertised so all the protesters come and *meet* there – just like, say, a beach party or a rave or a concert. In fact next time you venture out of your basement go look for a protest flyer and you will see the “meet at X at Y o’clock”.

    Next, the utter moron who made that video thinks it’s “suspicious” that the drone did not get a perfect shot of the crime. Well, let’s see, wouldn’t it be even more “suspicious” if it DID get a perfect shot? So no matter what happens it’s proof it’s “fake”.

    There’s absolutely no reason to fake it anyway. The people running the show on these events (and I do think overall they are staged, i.e., there are controllers who manage it) have no qualms about killing 1 or 1 million girls to advance their agenda. You are assuming the puppet masters care about this woman and would try to avoid her being harmed.

    Quite the contrary, on 9/11 they marched 3,000 firefighters and policemen into the WTC right before the demolition to have a nice big “body count” so they could implement their agenda better. And there’s many more examples. Real carnage is the best, no need to fake it!

    In his speech at the most recent American Renaissance conference Sam Dickson gave an interesting description of how it felt to be a segregationist during the civil rights movement. There were only a few national news outlets. They were all sympathetic with the civil rights movement.

    However, less civilized segregationists than Sam Dickson made it easy for the civil rights movement by responding violently to peaceful civil rights demonstrators.

    Segregationist violence made the civil rights legislation possible. If segregationists had responded with polite forbearance to the civil rights demonstrations, while waiting for the black ghetto riots that happened from 1964 to 1968, I doubt the civil rights legislation would have been passed.

    “Segregationist violence made the civil rights legislation possible.”

    No, southrons blatantly refusing to adhere to the “separate but equal” doctrine as stated in the Plessy made civil rights legislation necessary.

    But but but... if not for slavery, all these blacks would be back in Africa mired in poverty and trying to do everything to move to white nations.

    Maybe these monuments and memorials should be sacralized in a different way.

    As slave owners, these great white fathers facilitated the arrival of blacks into America so their descendants could live much better than blacks back in Africa.

    Positively. A black American still furious over the existence of American slavery is a black American furious about being an American at all. But would they be back in Africa without slavery or simply not exist?

    So which way they wanna have it?

    “There should have never been slavery. Then there would be no negroes in the USA!”

    Um, that can’t be right because I’m told that’s racist.

    In this context, race serves as “a group of people sharing the same culture, history, language, etc.; an ethnic group”.
     
    That has been my point the whole time.... The word being used by Oxford is not "ethnic group", and it certainly isn't "ethnicity". It is the word "race" that is being used in place of the more commonly used term "ethnic group". Oxford refers to Scots as a "race", just like the commenters above referred to Jews, Finns, and Japanese people as "races". I have no interest in the discussion of "superior races", but term itself is valid in this instance, unless you happen to believe that Oxford Dictionary (and many other dictionaries) are being "other than accurate". No offense, but I am not inclined to take the word of some anonymous chap on the internet over that of the University of Oxford.

    Regardless, the Scots, Jews, Finns, and Japanese are NOT distinct races, they are ethnic groups. The typical racial categories remain black, white, Asian, and aboriginal. It may be considered valid by the University of Oxford, and it may be used in a particular instance, but the example serves from my vantage point to confuse matters.

    And I thought the Alt Right was wary of universities preaching their advocation of “knowledge”.

    Recently Houston TX had a March for Science.

    In the same vein, people who see the foolishness of removing monuments should consider a March for History to defend the value of monuments in preserving an awareness of history in specific places. I think it would be most effective if the demonstrators all dressed well, the men in suits and women comparably attired. They should bring their children and hire additional police to work the event. The presence of the children would likely motivate the police to restrain counter protestors. The speakers could be history teachers and professors and other relatively well known historians and art historians. Also, if statues are in fact removed, they could be auctioned to art collectors because many are likely the work of well known sculptors.

    is that right? I know Nietzsche held up Christianity as the quintisential example of slave morality. Judaism doesn’t have turn the other cheek, resist not evil in it’s doctrine.
     
    From Beyond Good and Evil:

    "The Jews have brought off that miraculous feat of an inversion of values, thanks to which life on earth has acquired a novel and dangerous attraction for a couple of millennia. … Their prophets…were the first to use the word ‘world’ as a term of contempt. This inversion of values…constitutes the significance of the Jewish people: they mark the beginning of the slave rebellion in morals."

    "Let us briefly consider the greatest example. Everything on earth which has been done against “the noble,” “the powerful,” “the masters,” “the rulers” is not worth mentioning in comparison with what the Jews have done against them: the Jews, that priestly people, who knew how to get final satisfaction from their enemies and conquerors through a radical transformation of their values, that is, through an act of the most spiritual revenge. This was appropriate only to a priestly people with the most deeply repressed priestly desire for revenge. In opposition to the aristocratic value equations (good = noble = powerful = beautiful = fortunate = loved by god), the Jews, with an awe-inspiring consistency, dared to reverse things and to hang on to that with the teeth of the most profound hatred (the hatred of the powerless), that is, to “only those who suffer are good; the poor, the powerless, the low are the only good people; the suffering, those in need, the sick, the ugly are also the only pious people; only they are blessed by God; for them alone there is salvation."

    A lot of people who think they know Nietzsche have never read him...

    Nietzsche: “The whole problem of the Jews exists only in nation states, for here their energy and higher intelligence, their accumulated capital of spirit and will, gathered from generation to generation through a long schooling in suffering, must become so preponderant as to arouse mass envy and hatred. In almost all contemporary nations, therefore – in direct proportion to the degree to which they act up nationalistically – the literary obscenity of leading the Jews to slaughter as scapegoats of every conceivable public and internal misfortune is spreading.”

    This is actually what they did in King County, Washington. From wiki:

    The county was originally named after William Rufus King who was Vice President when the Washington Territory was created in 1853. In 1986, a motion was introduced to change the namesake to Martin Luther King Jr.[3] No public votes or hearings were taken on the change.[4]

    Why the ever-increasing hatred for America’s past?
     
    Why, indeed?

    America is increasingly dominated by people with shallow roots in this country. So it’s hardly surprising that they find it insulting to reflect upon what Americans not related to them once accomplished.
     
    Well, that may be one reason, but I don't think it's the best explanation. The U.S. assimilated large numbers of Irish, Italians, and Poles with "shallow roots" when Ellis Island was open, and those people embraced the likes of Washington and Jefferson as their own. I am "not related" to any of the Founders -- my lineage is Eastern European. But I find myself constantly reflecting on how brilliant they were.

    No, I think the best explanation for the present America-hate is the one given by Nietzsche -- it's the politics of ressentiment, or resentment.

    Nietzsche drew a distinction between "master-morality" and "slave-morality." "A living thing," wrote Nietzsche, "seeks to exert its strength." People of superior intellect, strength, creativity and willpower create nations and make history. They define morality in their own image, for they are the masters.

    The weak, the stupid, and the losers embrace slave morality -- that is, they resent and object to anything that the masters create. It is based upon envy and the knowledge that they are inferior.

    Nietzsche argued that Jews and feminists were the primary transmitters of slave morality. The only way they could exert power was to gin up resentment, envy and hate to bring down the intelligent, the creative, and the powerful.

    And that's EXACTLY what we see happening today. Who are the "antifa," tearing down statues of great men, but a collection of self-loathing freaks? Fat, tattooed women with purple hair, "transgenders," 80-IQ blacks, scrawny beta-cucks and gays, and neckbeards with dark-rimmed "smart" glasses on college campuses. They're incited by the ideas of Jewish Frankfurt School academics and Jewish feminists like Susan Sontag and Shulamith Firestone, which are now 100% mainstream in intellectual circles. They hate America and hate its Founders because they every time they look in the mirror know damn well they are incapable of matching up to a Jefferson, a Washington, a Lee, an Edison, a Ford, a Carnegie, a Wright or a Yeager.

    The hatred is based on envy and the knowledge of one's inferiority when standing in the shadows of giants.

    Your understanding of Nietzsche is limited to say the best.

    "it’s quite an amazing coincidence"
     
    You may have a case somewhere there in the pile of photographic evidence but nobody now 16 years later will be able to sort it out. What is the chain of custody of photographs? Were they tampered? When? By whom? So all you got left is the disbelief and derision with which you will not convince the believers in the orthodox version. In the real world whoever comes with the story first and has the loudest megaphone and has power to control access to evidence wins. It is no longer about the evidence. It is about the power of beliefs. Nothing will change it. It simply will become irrelevant like whether Jesus walked on the water on not after 2000 years of decay of Christianity became pretty much irrelevant. Look at JFK. We will never know. And do not fool yourself that this time it will be different. No death bed confessions of alleged conspirators will anything. You and WoZ are very similar in one respect. Both of you are immodest believers who can't bring themselves to admit to themselves that you really do not know.

    It is no longer about the evidence. It is about the power of beliefs. Nothing will change it.

    Of course. In the psycho-social sphere in which humans actually live, it is always and everywhere about the power of beliefs. Physical law simply provides the boundary conditions limiting what can physically occur in that sphere. It is otherwise ignored, in the same way the stage is ignored during a play. Everyone looks and listens to the narrative playing itself out and the stage goes unnoticed unless it collapses or an actor falls off.

    Beliefs do change, however, and when they do big things often happen. If my read of the psycho-social sphere is right, beliefs are on the cusp of a great discontinuity.

    This is false. See:

    https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/#main-findings

    California sends far more to Washington than it sends back. Also, there is no correlation between percentage of federal land and dependence on federal funding. If there were, Delaware would be the least dependent state in the US.

    Clue: It isn't.

    I imagine it was far different before the defense wind-downs of the mid 90s. Along with the many cut-backs a lot of defense was moved out of California by the contractors as punishment for California’s liberal Congressmen. Companies that merged with California based operation usually consolidated outside California such as when Raytheon swallowed up Hughes Aircraft Companies defense operations and moved R&D to Massachusetts.

    For a negative take, here's Katie McHugh:

    In 48 hours, Richard Spencer got results NPR struggled for years to achieve.

    We had Google on the run. I listen to NPR closely, and they went from being on defensive about James Damore’s heroic truth-telling to salivating over “domestic right-wing terrorism” after the Charlottesville death toll.

    If we thought HeilGate was bad, just wait until the fatal, fiery helicopter crashes happen.

    Richard Spencer has a kill count now and blood on his hands. Eric Clanton couldn’t kill a free speech supporter with a bike lock but a Spencer-organizer rally can kill a couple cops. Will Spencer’s fanboys will love him more than ever, especially because he has a kill count? Spencer: Three / Antifa: Zero!

    One can just hear them now: “They already call us Nazis, so why not identify as Nazis?” “They already call us murderers complicit in white supremacy, so why not try to murder some leftists?”

    This makes sense:

    Terminal Dilettante Syndrome is unacceptable if one wants to lead a “revolutionary” movement.

    Otherwise, Katie’s hysterical. In all senses of the word:

    Let’s return to why it was so urgent to remove Confederate memorial statues: Dylann Roof, his manifesto and his Kill Bill-esque church massacre. After Charlottesville, this purge will surely be accelerated. Why would anyone want to keep a magnet sure to draw out-of-town lunatics—Right and Left—in their town? Why not tear them down if only to avoid another war-like clash?

    And how many more innocent white people will be attacked, raped, robbed, murdered because of Spencer’s antics?

    Thanks for changing the subject back to 8A contracts, a subject I first brought up.

    You ignorantly labeled me a liar and then prattled on about unrelated Section 8 housing.

    I've never mentioned anything about SAT scores because they are irrelevant to anything whatsoever that I've posted.

    SAT scores are your irrelevant preoccupation, not mine.

    I'm just a person that detests government diversity schemes, group entitlements, and federal protected class groups.

    Like it or not, Asians are one of many federal protected class groups entitled by law.

    I'm not a WN nor did I ever claim to be a WN; just another example of your fevered and imagined conversations with me.

    You are fairly stupid to claim that "most Asians" are rich.

    You appear to be a grossly ignorant and arrogant dickhead.

    You are fairly stupid to claim that “most Asians” are rich.

    They have higher household income than whites. Many do not qualify for 8a (not that they needed).

    But yes, 8a should be abolished, just like ALL other affirmative action.

    SAT scores are your irrelevant preoccupation, not mine.

    It is relevant, because it demolishes your retarded belief that Asian success would not have happened without affirmative action.

    I stand by my assertion that some of the ones who were invited were close enough, in terms of political toxicity.

    Having glanced at PilotsforTruth - and wondered how many hours you have spent on its surely hundreds of hours of evidence (of something) - I noted, as does the author of the Rational Wiki article on Pilots for Truth that they are unusual among conspiracy theorists in proposing no alternative theory to the "official" one they don't find satisfying. How come they haven't pointed to a massive CIA backed conspiracy? The answer appears to be in an honest recognition that all their technical data is potentislly inaccurate. E.g. records showing thd planes still in the air after the crashes could be wrong. Almost looks like start again time for those who believe some amazingly clever people confected it all for some reason very indirectly connected to the ME.

    May I suggest you assist the further development of your thoughts based on these puzzled pilots by reading

    Their mission statement specifically precludes that. That aside, since when, and in what court, is the defence required to prove someone else guilty in order to show his own client innocent beyond reasonable doubt? That they seek to establish physical facts and offer no alternative “theory” is to their credit, imbecile.

  • @epebble
    This is how Kevin Williamson at National Review describes protesters like Cvjetanovic:

    ... A Charlottesville protester named Nicholas J. Fuentes, raging against the “rootless transnational elite,” vows: “You will not replace us.” I have reviewed the passenger manifest of the Mayflower, and there is not a single “Fuentes” to be found. Indeed, the rowdier white-power element in Texas, where I live, would very much like to see every man bearing the name “Fuentes” set down on the southerly side of a muddy little river that runs through Laredo. Peter Cvjetanovic, the 20-year-old rage-monkey bellowing in one of the now-famous photos of the tiki-Nazi procession in Virginia, complains: “I’m not the angry racist they see in that photo.” One hopes not: “Cvjetanović” is a Croat name. Not a whole lot of Slavs on the Mayflower, either,



    and the originators of that swastika flag the angry white boys in Virginia like to fly would have put every Cvjetanović they could lay hands on in a camp, eventually. Benito Mussolini reported that he himself had been impressed by a protest against “Jugo-Slav” immigrants in Italy. Fuentes? Cvjetanović? As Rachel Dolezal knows, white people just ain’t what they used to be. What does an angry white boy really want? “A girlfriend,” comes the mocking answer, and there’s probably more to that than mockery. The proprietor of one of the nation’s premier websites for neo-Nazi knuckleheads advised his colleagues in Charlottesville that, after the protest — which included a murder — “random girls will want to have sex with you.” I ran this proposition past a few random girls, and I suspect that the apfelstrudelführers are going to go home disappointed. There are many shades of white, and Mom’s-basement white is the least popular crayon in the box. Of course we should mock them, criticize them, lament them, and, in the case of James Alex Fields Jr., the trust-funder from Ohio charged in the death of Heather Heyer, prosecute them. What does James Alex Fields Jr. want? A transcript of a 911 call from his mother describes him beating her after she told him to stop playing a particular video game. She is disabled and uses a wheelchair. That wasn’t the only 911 call she made in fear of her son. The angry white boys do not have a serious political agenda. They don’t have any straightforward demands like the Teamsters or PETA do, and they do not have a well-developed ideological position like the Communists do, though it would be inaccurate to say that they lack an ideology entirely. Their agenda is their anger, an anger that is difficult to understand. Middle-class white men in the United States of America in anno Domini 2017 have their problems, to be sure. Life is full of little disappointments. But their motive is not to be found in their exterior circumstances, which are pretty good. Maybe too good: A great many of these young men have an interest in evolutionary psychology and evolutionary sociology — they like to think of themselves as “alpha males,” as though they were living in a chimpanzee troop — but it never occurs to them to consider their own status as rejects and failed men in that context. Online fantasy lives notwithstanding, random girls do not want to have sex with them. How do we know this? Because they are carrying tiki torches in a giant dork parade in Charlottesville. There’s no prom queen waiting at home. If we credit their own sociobiological model, they are the superfluous males who would have been discarded, along with their genetic material, by the pitiless state of nature. The fantasy of proving that they are something else is why they dream of violence and confrontation. They are the products of the soft liberal-democratic society they hold in contempt — and upon which they depend, utterly. James Alex Fields Jr. is angry at the world, and angry at his mother, probably for the same reason. What does an angry white boy want? The fact that they get together to play dress-up — to engage in a large and sometimes murderous game of cowboys and Indians — may give us our answer. They want to be someone other than who they are. That’s the great irony of identity politics: They seek identity in the tribe because they are failed individuals. They are a chain composed exclusively of weak links. What they are engaged in isn’t politics, but theater: play-acting in the hopes of achieving catharsis. Their online personas — knights, Vikings, reincarnations of Charles Martel — will be familiar enough to anybody with a Dungeons and Dragons nerd in his life. But sometimes, role-playing around a card table isn’t enough: Sometimes, you need a stage and an audience. In the theater, actors and audience both can forget ourselves for an hour or two. Under the soft glow of the tiki torches, these angry white boys can be something else — for a night. In the morning, they wake up with the same faces. And there is something in the faces. James Alex Fields Jr. has more than a little whiff of Dylann Roof about him, and we know what Dylann Roof wanted: to murder black people. Sometimes, it is worth taking angry white boys at their word.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/450501/white-nationalists-alt-right-vague-grievances-what-do-they-want

  • @Erebus

    Since these are commercial grade craft and well over spec’d I imagine they could hold together for the limited time necessary.
     
    It isn't just "holding together" that's required. In addition to precision flying, especially with the 2nd plane in a hi-G turn, maintenance of speed would, according to the pilots I cited above, have been impossible. Parasitic drag would quickly slow the plane, and the engines wouldn't have been able to overcome it due to cavitation.

    As we don’t have definitive data whether the airliners could physically do what the official narrative demands of them, we can’t definitively claim or exclude their use. At best, whatever argument marshals a preponderance of evidence on one side or the other may win a contingent, but not definitive victory.

    At this time, several highly qualified individuals have publicly stated that there's "Not a chance", and have given detailed explanations for their opinion. So far as I know, no similarly qualified individual has come forward on the other side.
    In addition to these experts, there are a myriad of technical anomalies associated with all 4 of the ostensible flights that day. On the other side are a few witnesses, and a few rather dodgy videos. Some of the witnesses are as dodgy as the videos.
    On balance, I'd say that the preponderance of evidence lies clearly on the side of No Planes Theory. The NPT, by the way, denies the use of commercially scheduled Boeing 7x7s, but does not preclude the use of other flying objects.

    Of course, should definitive data surface that precludes the use of airliners, the matter would be settled. Should said data indicate that they could have been flown in a manner consistent with the official narrative, that would indicate that they may have been, and we’re back to where we started. Namely, marshalling evidence. A real Inquiry with subpoena power could have answered this and a host of other questions. That such an Inquiry hasn't been convened is itself astonishing.

    So, to speculate on why the pilots (if there were any) failed to press the panic button(s) (if there were any) becomes a rather idle exercise. That there was no sign of panic button pressing is a matter of fact. Of course, that fact explains itself if there weren't any planes.

    At this time, several highly qualified individuals have publicly stated that there’s “Not a chance”, and have given detailed explanations for their opinion.

    No expert testimonies about plane performance abilities will have any impact on a jury which saw the footage of planes hitting the towers. You would have to convince them what they saw was not real. But if you could convince them it was not real you do not need the experts on plane performance limitations. Instead you need experts on video GCI real time composition to which opposite experts will be claiming that strange effects are just normal and not infrequent results of pixelization and data compression quirks. The jury will not be able to tell the difference between the two sets of experts so they will go with the original belief that stemmed for them from watching the video and believing it was real when they watched it first time.

    Just like a politician feeding bullshit to their pet journalist, and then believing the resulting stories because they read them in the paper!

    Not sure what juries may have to do with an inquiry. Are you thinking of a lawsuit? Do juries sit on judicial inquiries in the US? More to the point, a real court or inquiry would be able to subpoena the data from Boeing's wind-tunnel tests, and engineering data from the engine manufacturers. That would settle the matter of aircraft performance in a variety of conditions, including those ostensibly holding on 9/11. If that data shows the planes becoming uncontrollable, or unable to maintain speed, the matter is settled. Whatever videos and eyewitness accounts are available, the court would have a very close look at them before deciding whether they can be entered into evidence. If there remained a reasonable doubt about their provenance, they simply wouldn't be entered into evidence and any jury wouldn't have the opportunity to consider them in their deliberations. Isn't that how it works?

    This brought a shrug. “Maybe it should come down.”
     
    Did you get past this point? It's possible to keep going.

    When the only virtue is equality and slave holding (which was a shockingly universal labor type before the industrial revolution) is now the "duh, how could they do that? It's stupid and evil", unfortunately, there's nothing but a sea of evil hypocrites left in the Founding Fathers. How society is now interacting with itself is being extended into the past.

    African slavery in the US was mild in comparison to Brazil which couldn't stop importing Africans because they couldn't stop killing them. Africans multiplied here, presumably because slaveholders took reasonable care of them.

    Pull out the story of Moses - point out how quite often slavery ends up being a consensual relationship. The people freed from slavery never got the promised land, because in the end they wanted to go back to slavery. You can find interviews of the last American black slaves and they'll say very similar things - slavery was better than the labor arrangements afterwards.

    Bring complexity to the "slavery is bad" narrative. Add the very real complexity of human slavery throughout time. That might help still the SJW instincts in your teenager.

    In my experience, many teenagers feel like slaves. If only aging slaves could feel like teenagers.

    hmm i don't know that will be the case nationally. Southern cities like Atlanta will not have hispanic or white govt. Same with nyc, no need for blacks in harlem or bronx to leave if government aid continues to pay for rent controlled affordable housing. Same case can be made for most large northern cities like chicago, detroit, boston, philadelphia, DC, etc.

    So with future aa population of 14%, that's 60 million blacks in america in 2060 timeframe, although that will have an increasing amount of immigration from africa, which tends to be more educated (at least 1st and 2nd generation).

    Asians will be about 8%, so that's a poweful community of 40 million. I see tech and wall street with increasing amount of asian representations.

  • @Sparkon
    You're welcome Erebus. Thanks for the kind words, and especially for your efforts here to educate others. 'Good point about two objects trying to occupy the same space at the same time. 'Can't be done in the real world, but as you note, easily achieved with 3D graphics, or even with 2D graphics, and forced perspective.

    Now, let's have a look at that piece of wreckage photographed on the Pentagon lawn.
    http://pop.h-cdn.co/assets/cm/15/06/54cfc894a4b55_-_911-flight77-debris.jpg
    Army Times staff photographer, Mark D. Faram

    The first thing to notice is that this is a fragment of aluminum skin only, with no structural part of any aircraft showing. The second thing to notice is that the fragment of wreckage appears to be fairly pristine, having somehow escaped getting charred or burnt in the 757's ostensible collision with the Pentagon. The next thing to notice is that the fragment has come to rest on the Pentagon's lawn, without any apparent damage or disturbance to the lawn or grass growing there, but delicately, and rather precisely posed, as we shall see.

    Apparently, the photographer saw the wreckage, or was directed to it, and walked all the way out to it from the Pentagon without taking any pictures on the way -- at least, none that we know of -- and didn't take a picture until he had the wreckage between himself and the Pentagon, when finally he composed, and exposed his now-famous picture.

    So far so good, I guess.

    I found another picture of the wreckage, but it's taken from a different angle, and appears to have been moved. It does include part of a person, so we can get a sense of scale, and see that it's not a very big fragment. We have also the text on the yellow tape to see that the image hasn't been reversed. I can't orient myself between the two images very well, but something is not adding up. Anybody see it?
    http://static.dnaindia.com/sites/default/files/styles/half/public/2017/04/01/561607-9-11-flight-debris-afp.jpg

    Some researchers, James Hanson among others, have claimed that the fragment is really from AA 965, which crashed in Columbia in 1995.
    http://educate-yourself.org/cn/duffScreenHunter_283-May.-29-01.12-640x449.jpg

    Finally, I found this, which seems to settle the question of whether or not this fragment came from an American Airlines 757.

    http://911research.wtc7.net/essays/pentagon/docs/fitcloser.jpg
    Photo reconstruction by "Brian"

    http://www.rense.com/general31/confirm.htm

    It's a perfect fit, by Jove!

    So, it's quite an amazing coincidence, really, where the photographer walked out to a specific spot on 9/11 to take a photo of an aircraft wreckage fragment that would later line up exactly with existing photos of a 757 to prove the fragment's bona fides.

    Gosh, what a photographer!

    What is actually argument you are making expect for expressing your personal disbelief and derision:

    “walked all the way out to it from the Pentagon without taking any pictures on the way — at least, none that we know of — and didn’t take a picture until he had the wreckage between himself and the Pentagon, when finally he composed, and exposed his now-famous picture”

    “it’s quite an amazing coincidence”

    You may have a case somewhere there in the pile of photographic evidence but nobody now 16 years later will be able to sort it out. What is the chain of custody of photographs? Were they tampered? When? By whom? So all you got left is the disbelief and derision with which you will not convince the believers in the orthodox version. In the real world whoever comes with the story first and has the loudest megaphone and has power to control access to evidence wins. It is no longer about the evidence. It is about the power of beliefs. Nothing will change it. It simply will become irrelevant like whether Jesus walked on the water on not after 2000 years of decay of Christianity became pretty much irrelevant. Look at JFK. We will never know. And do not fool yourself that this time it will be different. No death bed confessions of alleged conspirators will anything. You and WoZ are very similar in one respect. Both of you are immodest believers who can’t bring themselves to admit to themselves that you really do not know.

    Of course. In the psycho-social sphere in which humans actually live, it is always and everywhere about the power of beliefs. Physical law simply provides the boundary conditions limiting what can physically occur in that sphere. It is otherwise ignored, in the same way the stage is ignored during a play. Everyone looks and listens to the narrative playing itself out and the stage goes unnoticed unless it collapses or an actor falls off.

    Beliefs do change, however, and when they do big things often happen. If my read of the psycho-social sphere is right, beliefs are on the cusp of a great discontinuity.

    That's the solution reached in Charlottesville for Washington Park, which was created in the 1920's for black citizens. It was renamed Booker T. Washington Park in 2001.

    I think that black mayors and politicians with Washington-related stuff should all be asked questions like "Do you believe that George Washington was a great American patriot?" Anything other than enthusiastic agreement must be given an extreme response. The same with all similar American founders and patriots.

    In a related story, the female African-American mayor of Baltimore had all confederate monuments removed in the dark of night:

    "With no immediate public notice, no fund-raising, and no plan for a permanent location for the monuments once they had been excised — all things city officials once believed they would need — the mayor watched in the wee hours on Wednesday as contractors with cranes protected by a contingent of police officers lifted the monuments from their pedestals and rolled them away on flatbed trucks."

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/16/us/baltimore-confederate-statues.html?_r=0

    “The mayor has the right to protect her city,” she said. “For me, the statues represented pain, and not only did I want to protect my city from any more of that pain, I also wanted to protect my city from any of the violence that was occurring around the nation. We don’t need that in Baltimore.”

    She’d have done better to protect “her city” from pain and violence by removing blacks from it, herself included.

    I would say at this point, Trump is a week away from being impeached, convicted, removed along with Pence, and either: Kamala Harris or Maxine Waters installed by CuckServative Supreme Paul Ryan, with the help of Yertle the Turtle Mitch McConnell. They all hate Trump, and all the women at my office had nothing but a giant hen session for hours bitching about Trump, White men, racisssss stuff, and how all White men need to be rounded up and put in a camp. [I am one of the few White dudes working there]

    There is no end to the ways in which White women are the eternal enemy of White men. Look at the wailing over the huge fat chick with a taste for Black men that got run over.

    All Trump's corporate backers have deserted him, to the point where he had to disband his council. He's firing Steve Bannon and Steve Miller, and trying to cuck out but it won't work.

    BLACK PEOPLE ARE SACRED. And WHITE MEN ARE EVIL. These two tenets are central to the America Religion which is held as holy scripture by most White women. Black women are mostly fat and "sassy" two aspects that White women can't get enough of; while Black men are low IQ and aggressive and violent, two things White women demand in their men. Most White men tend towards the James Damore side of things, which women find revolting and repellent and "creepy" unlike a Gentle Giant(tm) or Saint Skittles who punched a fifty something female bus driver and broke her jaw. While still, I might add, a minor. Women love that stuff, always have, always will.

    So yeah, it is only a matter of time before EVERY White male represented in a painting is destroyed, in a statue torn down, on a monument exploded; and White men are herded into some sort of electronic slavery -- a Google-Apple-Fakebook "conditioning collar" designed to "enhance diversity" by making White men slave away while non-Whites and White women enjoy the fruits of their indispensable labor.

    Here is the central paradox of White nations: its women are openly allied with non-Whites within and without in loathing their men, yet only their men can provide the material goods and comfort and cannot be done without. Thus White slavery is the only thing left -- hence the hysteria over slavery since it is inevitable for White men given the ever increasing demands from White women and non-Whites and the latter's constantly increasing numbers.

    I’m reading a history of China and one of their most ancient texts (I think it’s called the Classic of Poetry or somesuch) contains a warning to men that women, if given the chance, will destroy civilization. It’s not a new insight.

    We've been over this. 8a is not given to anyone with over $250,000 in assets, as your own link indicates. This means most Asians can't use it anyway (not that they need to).

    The whole program should be done away with, of course.

    What is funny is that you can't accept that Asians have higher SAT scores than whites, which pretty much proves that they can (and do) outperform without AA. You WN idiots can't come to terms with that.

    But Section 8a should be removed just so that WN wiggers don't have anything to hide behind, since Asians don't need it to excel.

    Thanks for changing the subject back to 8A contracts, a subject I first brought up.

    You ignorantly labeled me a liar and then prattled on about unrelated Section 8 housing.

    I’ve never mentioned anything about SAT scores because they are irrelevant to anything whatsoever that I’ve posted.

    SAT scores are your irrelevant preoccupation, not mine.

    I’m just a person that detests government diversity schemes, group entitlements, and federal protected class groups.

    Like it or not, Asians are one of many federal protected class groups entitled by law.

    I’m not a WN nor did I ever claim to be a WN; just another example of your fevered and imagined conversations with me.

That’s the thing in this case: a bunch of blacks who are now majorities in some southern towns in particular have to look at statues of white people. Now being the political majority in these places, they want them taken down, and probably will vote for politicians willing to do so.

    Public statuary is another nice thing we may not be able to amicably have anymore in an increasingly diverse nation. Some lefties gathered in Nashville the other night protesting a Nathan Bedford Forrest statue located somewhere there. Governor Bill Haslam agrees with them apparently.

    I’d personally prefer the racially conscious white right focus on building a antipoverty organization dedicated to helping struggling whites with attaining job skills, defeating drug addictions, and career help so they can afford larger family formation. Any meetings such a group had would probably need to be on private property (large farms with tents) with lots of security in conjunction with local law enforcement to keep antifa out. Charlottesville was a public relations loss for the white right in my opinion as the media is basically blaming three deaths on it. Racial pride and pro-large-family exhortation can happen amongst whites in other ways than fights in public parks with antifa and local blacks over statues.

    If all this is too insane for a disoriented liberal like Beinart we know that we have stepped onto the crazy train.

    My take is that Beinart knows very well that Jefferson and Washington are next to be taken down. But it would be a bad tactical move to speak openly of it, yet. Still too many Whites, and they are not sufficiently cowed.

    The left has used the “Camel’s nose in the tent” technique brilliantly in advancing its agenda. They play the long game.

    Ted Kennedy, speaking of the 1965 immigration bill opening borders to the 3rd world: “This bill not not impact the ethnic makeup of the USA.”

    Lefties, 1980s: “Isn’t all the ethnic food great? So much better than dull White food.”

    Lefties, 1990s: “Nothing is changing. You’re overreacting, White people.”

    Lefties, 2000s: “We’ve always been a nation of immigrants. Immigrants from Somalia are more “American” than Americans born here.

  • I would say at this point, Trump is a week away from being impeached, convicted, removed along with Pence, and either: Kamala Harris or Maxine Waters installed by CuckServative Supreme Paul Ryan, with the help of Yertle the Turtle Mitch McConnell. They all hate Trump, and all the women at my office had nothing but a giant hen session for hours bitching about Trump, White men, racisssss stuff, and how all White men need to be rounded up and put in a camp. [I am one of the few White dudes working there]

    There is no end to the ways in which White women are the eternal enemy of White men. Look at the wailing over the huge fat chick with a taste for Black men that got run over.

    All Trump’s corporate backers have deserted him, to the point where he had to disband his council. He’s firing Steve Bannon and Steve Miller, and trying to cuck out but it won’t work.

    BLACK PEOPLE ARE SACRED. And WHITE MEN ARE EVIL. These two tenets are central to the America Religion which is held as holy scripture by most White women. Black women are mostly fat and “sassy” two aspects that White women can’t get enough of; while Black men are low IQ and aggressive and violent, two things White women demand in their men. Most White men tend towards the James Damore side of things, which women find revolting and repellent and “creepy” unlike a Gentle Giant(tm) or Saint Skittles who punched a fifty something female bus driver and broke her jaw. While still, I might add, a minor. Women love that stuff, always have, always will.

    So yeah, it is only a matter of time before EVERY White male represented in a painting is destroyed, in a statue torn down, on a monument exploded; and White men are herded into some sort of electronic slavery — a Google-Apple-Fakebook “conditioning collar” designed to “enhance diversity” by making White men slave away while non-Whites and White women enjoy the fruits of their indispensable labor.

    Here is the central paradox of White nations: its women are openly allied with non-Whites within and without in loathing their men, yet only their men can provide the material goods and comfort and cannot be done without. Thus White slavery is the only thing left — hence the hysteria over slavery since it is inevitable for White men given the ever increasing demands from White women and non-Whites and the latter’s constantly increasing numbers.

    Communist equalitarian propagandists posit that the great cultural inequality in the contributions of the various races is to be accounted for by the fact that the more advanced enjoyed "an unusual collection of fortunate circumstances."

    That is to say, no race comes to the top because it is more gifted or more masterful, but because it has "better luck."

    It does not win it's way, but somehow is given a more "favorable environment." As far as race itself is concerned, one is as good as another.

    Those who hold such views are often referred to as the "Franz Boas school."

    Franz Boas was born in Germany in 1858 of radical socialist Jewish parents. His education included no study of anthropology; how he got his Ph.D. appears to be something of a mystery.

    Nevertheless, by 1899 he became Professor of Anthropology at Columbia University, where for nearly 40 years he trained a great many students in his doctrine of so- called social or "cultural" anthropology, (((i.e. cultural Marxism, political correctness a la Frankfurt School))) which breaks with physical anthropology (and all past wisdom on the subject) in its teaching that the long- observed racial differences in feature, capability and character are due primarily to environment rather than to heredity.

    Selected students of Boas, given an aura of authority with PhD degrees, were placed decades ago at the head of anthropogy departments in leading universities, and given the concerted backing of press, radio, and later, TV, which freely published their pronouncements and refused a hearing to those who wanted to answer them.

    Thus, with the students whom they in turn raised up to become heads of university departments they have constituted that "cohesive propaganda group" which has been responsible, more than anything else, for putting almost the entire academic and intellectual life of the United States, and now ever increasingly, the political, and economic, social and religious life of the country as well, on an equalitarian foundation, with what the great mass of people take to be solid scientific backing.

    The conviction that all men are equal was the driving force behind the French Revolution, and it has been the driving force behind every social revolution (or attempt at social revolution) since then.

    It is of critical importance that this be understood, for it is the very essence of the acid which Communism pours upon every society it sets itself to destroy.

    The doctrine of equality will literally dissolve any society to which it is rigorously applied, for all social structure and soundness depend upon the recognition that men are not equal, that direction and leadership, without which a society can neither come into existence nor long endure, must come and can come only, from the few possesed of superior brains and personality.

    folks exposed s to several tens of thousands of years of snow and ice…and presto! Natural Selection prunes their genes for intelligence. Those in the bush…left in the bush. too bad.

  • We need to censor White Self-Hatred. Hating one’s own people is vile and disgusting. And white Cuck-ness is so sick and pathetic.

    I say we censor Cucky White Self-Hatred and servitude to globalist supremacism and Zionist chauvinism. It is pathetic and dangerous. And defend the Palestinians.

    Globalist Supremacists and their Cuck-dogs target both BDS and White Patriotism. Why? Both challenge the real supremacism.

    Cuck-dogs are envious of Alt Right wolves who howl freely. Cucks just bark like dogs to appease glob master.

    Suspending Rule of Law is the height of ‘nihilism’. It is saying that Civil Liberties should be decided by the whims of Power.

    Cucks fear the Alt Right because, deep down inside, they know Alt Right is right. But they are ‘triggered’ since they were raised cucky and must seek approval from their master to think or say anything. Alt Right howls freely. Cuck dogs beg the master, “Censor the howl. It makes me feel like a servile dog on a leash that I am.” Dog on leash envies the free roaming wolf.

    When globalist supremacist power is so nihilist and does as it pleases, we need the counter-nihilism of the Alt Right.

    John McCain bitches about Alt Right terror, but he supported Alqaeda in Syria & real Neo-Nazis in Ukraine. Insane McCain.

    You know what Nihilism is? Financial sharks using Wall Street to run up a massive bubble, rake in super profits, and then getting ‘bail outs’ when the whole thing bursts. Private profits, socialists losses.

    You know what nihilism is? It’s globalists raping Russia in the 80s and leaving Russians to starve.

    Below is a casae of Zionist supremacist nihilism. Deny job to a professor because he is for Palestinian patriotism and survival.

    https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/04/15/thomas-friedmans-perverse-love-affair-isis

    Cucks fear Alt Right because, in an open forum, Alt Right is winning the arguments. Alt Right is white folks as free wolves. Cucks are white folks as dogs of AIPAC seeking approval at all times.

    Who controls Hollywood? Who made all those movies about Evil Muslim Terrorists that prepped Americans to hate ‘muzzies’ and wage nihilist wars in the Middle East? Who funded 300, the Neocon War Porn that says ‘Kill those Eye-ranians’.

    Does Alt Right control music industry? No, Jewish globalists control music industry and peddle rap gangster music that promotes violence and thuggery. Generations of blacks grew up with Afro-nihilism of rap where every dude is a thug and every woman is ‘bitchass ho’.

    Does Alt Right control sex industry? No, Jewish Liberals control Pornography and use it to promote black supremacism of Mandingo and interracism and submissive cuck-dorkery among white boys.

    Now was it Alt Right or was it AIPAC that bought up all whore politicians to enforce imperialism and apartheid over Palestinians?

    Did Alt Right aid Alqaeda in Syria to destroy Secular Modern Assad regime? Did Alt Right aid Neo-Nazis in Ukraine to pull off a coup? Who did that? The Deep State presided by Obama, Hillary, and Neocon freaks.

    Did Alt Right lie about WMD to invade Iraq? Did Alt Right destroy Libya to stop Gaddafi from creating new currency? Who did such vile, disgusting, murderous, and nihilistic things that trampled all over international law?

    ‘White supremacism’ is a chimera used by Zionist supremacists to distract us from globalist Supremacism that really rules America.

    It is Jewish Supremacism that has the biggest grip on America. It is AIPAC that forces all Americans to support Zionist pulverization of Palestinians that never ever stops.

    And what did Obama and Hillary have to say when BLM thug murdered those police officers? Now, that was nihilism.

    Rense is not the "source" of that photo.
    That photo was one of a series of a half dozen or so made from (presumably) the same aircraft that day and was to be found on a few websites a decade+ ago along with others in the series. I just went with the first one that popped up on the image search.
    The entire series showed the Pentagon just after the hit, before the airspace was closed and any fires or first responders and equipment showed up. The pristine lawn was clearly visible in all of them, and the very small entry hole was particularly clear on a couple.

    I will look with interest at your “srries of photographs just after the hit” but, in the meantime will have to make do with the first comment by tantor in

    and the fascinating linked YouTube reconstruction which includes actual video and still camera footage. I note with interest that an apparently actual picture shown just after “3rd light pole struck” (which of course is simulated) is similar to the picture I thought might be airbrushed. In reality it seems that it may be a matter of camera angle and the photographer’s position when he took the pic.

    The light poles being hit successively seems to support the idea that the “missile” was a big plane with substantial wings doesn’t it? Note that there are what are presented as photographs of the poles, not simulations.

    Booker T. Washington's name came to mind when reading your Taki piece. Having shallow roots in America doesn't explain African Americans' current antipathy to the founders, and neither does the history of slavery, as the all the blacks who proudly kept the name of Washington shows (and not just as a last name: George Washington Carver, for example).

    As for Jews, in past decades, many Jews took pride in the handful of prominent Jews in early American history, such as Haym Solomon. Erdeley's allergy to Jefferson seems relatively new.

    Something else is happening. Maybe it's lefties trying to get ahead of the curve after all the cheerleading for post-white America over the last several years.

    Dave,

    It’s funny to watch investing professional – who, you know, understand statistics – spout such silliness.

    Of course, Ritzholtz is Jewish so I get his angle – fight and fight hard for the Jewish people – but the whites who slovenly agree with him need a counter balance.

    The art on the $5,$10, & $20 was ruined in 1998 when affirmative action artists at the mall mint redid the portraits of Lincoln, Hamilton, and Jackson. It’s probably more fitting to put Pablo Escobar’s face on the $20 since at one point there were trace amounts of cocaine on every twenty in circulation. Also, Hispanics now outnumber blacks 2:1.

    Sacrificing Smart Asians to Keep the Racial Peace

    When the Justice Department announced its investigation into Harvard’s possible racial discrimination against Asians, almost on cue the usual suspects came forth with all-too familiar rhetoric on affirmation action. For liberals it was all about keeping our cherished diversity or helping the disadvantaged; conservatives meanwhile lectured on merit-based admissions or how preferences will stigmatize beneficiaries of preferential treatment. And on and on. Without exception, regardless of the speaker’s ideology, everything offered was the usual pabulum and, no doubt, the speeches will be resurrected again given that racial preferences are unlikely to vanish.

    There is, however, one argument justifying putting a heavy thumb on the scale for blacks that is unspeakable, at least publicly. I’ll call it an impolite conservative argument, conservative in the sense of preserving a relatively tranquil status quo and impolite insofar as it acknowledges an uncomfortable race-related truth.

    The argument is that admitting academically unqualified blacks to elite schools is, at core, a policy to protect the racial peace and, as such, has nothing to do with racial justice, the putative benefits of diversity or any other standard justification. It is this peace- keeping function that explains why the entire establishment, from mega corporations to the military, endorses constitutionally iffy racial discrimination and why questioning diversity’s benefits is the most grievous of all PC sins. Stated in cost-benefit terms, denying a few hundred (even a few thousand) high-SAT scoring Asians an Ivy League diploma and instead forcing them attend Penn State is a cheap price to pay for social peace.

    This argument rests on an indisputable reality that nearly all societies contain distinct ethnic or religious groups who must be managed for the sake of collective peace. They typically lack the ability to economically compete, may embrace values that contravene the dominant ethos, or otherwise just refuse to assimilate. What makes management imperative is the possibility of violence either at an individual level, for example, randomly stabbing total strangers, or on a larger scale, riots and insurrections. Thus, in the grand scheme of modern America’s potentially explosive race relations, academically accomplished Asians, most of whom are politically quiescent, are expendable, collateral damage in the battle to sustain a shaky status quo.

    Examples of such to-be-managed groups abound. Recall our own tribulations with violent Indian tribes well into the 19th century or what several European nations currently face with Muslims or today’s civil war in Burma with the Karen People. Then there’s Turkey’s enduring conflict with the Kurds and long before the threat of Islamic terrorism, there were Basque separatists (the ETA), and the Irish Republican Army. In the past 45 years, there have been more than 16,000 terror attacks in Western Europe according to the Global Terrorism Database. At a lower levels add the persistently criminal Gypsies who for 500 years have resisted all efforts to assimilate them. This listing is, of course, only a tiny sampling of distinct indigestible violence-prone groups.


    The repertoire of remedies, successful and failed, is also extensive. Our native-American problem has, sad to say, been largely solved by the use of apartheid-like reservations and incapacitating a once war-like people with drugs and alcohol. Elsewhere generous self-rule has done the trick, for example, the Basques in Spain. A particularly effective traditional solution is to promote passivity by encouraging religious acceptance of one’s lowly state.

    Now to the question at hand: what is to be done regarding American blacks, a group notable for its penchant for violence whose economic advancement over the last half-century has largely stalled despite tens of billions and countless government uplift programs.

    To appreciate the value of affirmative action recall the urban riots of the 1960s. They have almost been forgotten but their sheer number during that decade would shock those grown accustomed to today’s relative tranquility. A sampling of cities with major riots includes Rochester, NY, New York City, Philadelphia, PA, Los Angeles, CA, Cleveland, OH, Newark, NJ, Detroit, MI, Chicago, IL, Washington, DC and several smaller cities.

    The damage from these riots— “uprisings” or “rebellions” according to some—was immense. For example, the Detroit riot of 1967 lasted five days and quelling it required the intervention of the Michigan Army National Guard and both the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions. When it finally ended, the death toll was 43, some 7200 were arrested and more than 2000 buildings destroyed. Alas, much of this devastation remains visible today and should be a reminder of what could happen absent a policy of cooling out black anger.

    To correctly understand how racial preferences at elite colleges serves as a cost-effective solution to potential domestic violence, recall the quip by comedian Henny Youngman when asked “How’s your wife?” He responded with, “Compared to what?” This logic reflects a hard truth: when confronting a sizable, potentially disruptive population unable or unwilling to assimilate, a perfect solution is beyond reach. Choices are only among the lesser of evils and, to repeat, under current conditions, race-driven affirmative action is conceivably the best of the worst. A hard-headed realist would draw a parallel with how big city merchants survive by paying off the police, building and food inspectors, and the Mafia. Racial preferences are just one more item on the cost-of-doing business list–the Danegeld.

    In effect, racial preferences in elite higher education (and beneficiaries includes students, professors and the diversity-managing administrators) separates the top 10% measured in cognitive ability from their more violent down market racial compatriots. While this manufactured caste-like arrangement hardly guarantees racial peace (as the black-on-white crime rate, demonstrates) but it pretty much dampens the possibility of more collective, well-organized related upheavals, the types of disturbances that truly terrify the white establishment. Better to have the handsomely paid Cornel West pontificating about white racism at Princeton where he is a full professor than fulminating at some Ghetto street corner. This status driven divide just reflects human nature. Why would a black Yalie on Wall Street socialize with the bro’s left behind in the Hood? This is the strategy of preventing a large-scale, organized rebellion by decapitating its potential leadership. Violence is now just Chicago or Baltimore-style gang-banger intra-racial mayhem or various lone-wolf criminal attacks on whites.


    Co-optation is a staple in the political management repertoire. The Soviet Union adsorbed what they called the “leading edge” into the Party (anyone exceptionally accomplished, from chess grandmasters or world-class athletes) to widen the divide the dominant elite, i.e., the Party, and hoi polloi. Election systems can be organized to guarantee a modicum of power to a handful of potential disruptors and with this position comes ample material benefits (think Maxine Waters). Monarchies have similarly managed potential strife by bestowing honors and titles on commoners. It is no accident that many radicals are routinely accused of “selling out” by their former colleagues in arms. In most instances the accusation is true, and this is by design.

    To appreciate the advantages of the racial preferences in higher education consider Henny’s “compared to what”? part of his quip. Certainly what successfully worked for quelling potential Native American violence, e.g., forced assimilation in “Indian Schools” or confinement in pathology-breeding reservations, is now totally beyond the pale though, to be sure, some inner-cities dominated by public housing are increasingly coming to resemble pathology-inducing Indian reservations. Even less feasible is some legally mandated homeland of the types advocated by Black Muslims.

    I haven’t done the math but I would guess that the entire educational racial spoils system is far more cost effective than creating a garrison state or a DDR-like police state where thousands of black trouble-makers were quickly incarcerated. Perhaps affirmative action in general should be viewed as akin to a nuisance tax, probably less than 5% of our GDP.

    To be sure, affirmative action at elite universities is only one of today’s nostrums to quell potential large scale race-related violence. Other tactics include guaranteeing blacks elected offices, even if this requires turning a blind eye toward election fraud, and quickly surrendering to blacks who demand awards and honors on the basis of skin color. Perhaps a generous welfare system could be added to this keep-the-peace list. Nevertheless, when all added up, the costs would be far lowers than dealing with widespread 1960s style urban violence.

    This peace-keeping aspect of affirmative action understood, perhaps we ought to view those smart Asians unfairly rejected from Ivy League schools as sacrificial lambs. Now, given all the billions that have been saved, maybe a totally free ride at lesser schools would be a small price to pay for their dissatisfaction (and they would also be academic stars at such schools). Of course this “Asian only” compensatory scholarship might be illegal under the color blind requirements of 1964 Civil Right Act, but fear not, devious admission officers will figure out a way around the law

    I might not put it that cynically, but that is pretty much my understanding of the reality of AA. I am OK with the Social Justice justification. Where do you suppose the slogan, “No Justice, no Peace”, comes from — from racists?

    But you cannot even support AA on a college campus on the basis of Social Justice; you have to support it as an intrinsic good, and if you don’t, the Thought Police will stuff you into Room 101 at the Ministry of Love with a rat cage over your head.

    But that brings up another problem. If it is really about Social Justice but people at the U correct you, “Oh no, it is about Diversity, it is about making all members of the academic community and the society it serves better off.” This is a Socialist’s Big Lie, and lies undermine academic integrity as much as cheating for a better grade or making stuff up to publish papers or shading the interpretation of data to curry favor with funding sources. The lie part of this is much more corrosive than any putative relaxation of academic standards to get AA to work.

    Sharpton said America’s third president and the author of the Declaration of Independence had several slaves.

    Sharpton also noted how Jefferson is said to have fathered a child with a slave named Sally Hemings.

    “People need to understand that people were enslaved,” Sharpton told PBS’ Charlie Rose.

    He said that his great-grandfather was a slave who was owned by an ancestor of former Sen. J. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.).

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/discover-terminates-merchant-agreements-with-white-supremacist-groups-following-moves-by-paypal-and-godaddy-2017-08-16

    Discover is cutting ties with hate-group sites, the company said Wednesday, amid growing pressure on financial services to ensure white supremacist groups do not use their sites for funding. “Discover is committed to diversity and inclusion,” a spokesman told MarketWatch. “The intolerant and racist views of hate groups are inconsistent with our beliefs and practices.” Visa, the world’s largest processor of credit card payments, also stopped prohibited processing payments for hate groups, the New York Post reported. Apple Pay also told Buzzfeed it was terminating support for sites that sold white supremacist items and clothing Nazi memorabilia.

    Earlier Wednesday, a spokesman for Mastercard said the company did not prohibit the acceptance of Mastercard-branded payments from merchants based on disagreement, but has since updated that statement. “We have reviewed a comprehensive list of websites provided by civic leaders and others,” he told MarketWatch. “We are shutting down the use of our cards on sites that we believe incite violence, as well as those who are wrongfully suggesting they accept our cards, when in fact they don’t.”

    These moves come after PayPal PYPL, +1.01% announced Tuesday it would take extra measures in light of the events in Charlottesville, Va. last weekend to ensure its platform is not used to accept payments or donations related to hate, violence, or racial intolerance. “We are dedicated to providing financial services to people with a diversity of views and from all walks of life,” PayPal said in a statement. “While the challenges and the landscape are continually changing, we will continue to work hard to limit the efforts of those who try to use our services inappropriately.”

    With his customary de haut en bas manner, Kevin Williamson talks about Charlottesville. Some high points:

    What do the white nationalists actually want?
     
    That's an easy one: an America with a European supermajority (say, 85-90% European)

    The idiot children of Yale protested a conference on freedom of speech at which I was speaking in 2015, part of a larger kerfuffle about Halloween costumes: A professor had criticized the university’s advice to avoid “cultural appropriation” as part of a larger trend toward transforming campuses into “places of censure and prohibition.” She was censured and, eventually, prohibited — pressured into resigning her job. The Yale kids were spitting mad, or at least a few of them were. I talked to a few future investment bankers after the conference, and, while they did not have any obvious sympathy for my political views, they were embarrassed by their fellow students. They rightly understood the protest to be a form of play-acting, a game of make-believe for young adults who should have grown out of it.
     
    Ah, gotta love how respectful Kev becomes when he's around "a few future investment bankers."

    What do these angry white boys in Virginia want?
     
    I thought that I already answered that one. Ah, well, cut +paste: an America with a European supermajority (say, 85-90% European)

    There is some value in taking them at their word, or the 14 of them that make up the basic creed of the white-nationalist movement: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” Well, all right. I suppose there are a few campus radicals who oppose the existence of white people, though so far as I can tell this is mainly rhetoric rather than a plan of action.
     
    Dunno. Massive levels of non-European immigration seem like more than mere "rhetoric" to me....

    They complain that white men are blamed for all of society’s troubles, that racial and ethnic pride is permitted to everyone except whites (no one has informed the Irish Americans of this),

     

    On the other hand, Kev, what's a guy to do if he's 25% Finnish, 25% Italian, 25% Ashkenazi, and 25% English-Scots.....

    See, look at this Nativist goon with the Croat name! Didn't he get the memo about how the descendants of immigrants have to be in favor of immigration?

    Of course, one could also see that as the mark of a successful bit of assimilation....

    Incidentally, Kev, that's a really old bit of satire. Sinclair Lewis used it in one of his novels back in the '20s.....

    What does an angry white boy really want?
     
    Yeesh. I already answered that one. Not gonna do it again.

    “A girlfriend,” comes the mocking answer, and there’s probably more to that than mockery.

    What significance do you attach to whether the towers were struck at 500 knots or 300?

    Why do see a problem about a plane that can fly at 500 knots at high altitude picking up up speed in a dive and maintaining nearly all of it when it merely reduces the angle of the dive? After all if an aircraft flying at 500 knots at 30,000 feet went into a fully powered near vertical dive wouldn't you expect it to hit the ground at some much greater speed? Would 1000 knots surprise?

    I found significance in the unique way Linh Dinh’s words have flown into Zelikow’s knotty 9/11 report, and landed intact at Veterans Today!

    Don’t go into a bloody tailspin, Oz! Even President Trump could not understand the towers having become “pancake,” but of course such reasonable insight was grounded into the Zionist Memory Hole Hangar.

    This brought a shrug. “Maybe it should come down.”
     
    Did you get past this point? It's possible to keep going.

    When the only virtue is equality and slave holding (which was a shockingly universal labor type before the industrial revolution) is now the "duh, how could they do that? It's stupid and evil", unfortunately, there's nothing but a sea of evil hypocrites left in the Founding Fathers. How society is now interacting with itself is being extended into the past.

    African slavery in the US was mild in comparison to Brazil which couldn't stop importing Africans because they couldn't stop killing them. Africans multiplied here, presumably because slaveholders took reasonable care of them.

    Pull out the story of Moses - point out how quite often slavery ends up being a consensual relationship. The people freed from slavery never got the promised land, because in the end they wanted to go back to slavery. You can find interviews of the last American black slaves and they'll say very similar things - slavery was better than the labor arrangements afterwards.

    Bring complexity to the "slavery is bad" narrative. Add the very real complexity of human slavery throughout time. That might help still the SJW instincts in your teenager.

    I read a journalist’s account of the gold rush of the 1890s in the Yukon. One of the prospectors he met was a freed slave who was hoping to find gold so he could pay off his old master’s mortgage.

    How many people today can even entertain the possibility that master and slave could have a loving friendship?

  • @Alec Leamas

    Booker T. Washington’s name came to mind when reading your Taki piece. Having shallow roots in America doesn’t explain African Americans’ current antipathy to the founders, and neither does the history of slavery, as the all the blacks who proudly kept the name of Washington shows (and not just as a last name: George Washington Carver, for example).
     
    I knew an old black guy named "Washington Jefferson" (I know this sounds like I made this up just for this, but no).

    I think in the 1960s the internal debate among blacks was whether to pursue full recognition of rights as Americans or whether to regard themselves as a nation-within-nation. The official history says that the Civil Rights movement was about a struggle for the former and we just haven't completely gotten there but I think the the reality is that the latter better approximates where black Americans who aren't the Conservatives' favorite black friends on Fox News are and have been. The Radicals won that debate and have influenced the telling of history to the younger generations. I think the Left always wanted it that way anyhow.

    Most people over, say thirty five years of age seem to sense that something really is different with blacks now as opposed to 20 years ago. There's less general good will and less desire to get along.

    Steve posted a quote last month from the founder of Muslim Pakistan, who held that British India was two nations within a nation because “their heroes are our villains”. African-Americans and the new left today hold that our heroes are their villains. And their heroes are our nobodies.

    The nation within a nation is like the parasite in the movie Alien. Waiting to bust out and destroy the host in the process.

  • When the Justice Department announced its investigation into Harvard’s possible racial discrimination against Asians, almost on cue the usual suspects came forth with all-too familiar rhetoric on affirmation action. For liberals it was all about keeping our cherished diversity or helping the disadvantaged; conservatives meanwhile lectured on merit-based admissions or how preferences will stigmatize beneficiaries...
  • This article may tend to take your mind off the real racial injustice at Harvard. In an article “Affirmative Action Battle Has a New Focus: Asian-Americans” in the NY Times, August 3, 2017 ANEMONA HARTOCOLLIS and STEPHANIE SAUL wrote “”The Harvard lawsuit likens attitudes toward Asian-Americans to attitudes toward Jews at Harvard, beginning around 1920, when Jews were a high-achieving minority. In 1918, Jews reached 20 percent of the Harvard freshman class, and the university soon proposed a quota to lower the number of Jewish students.”” In my humble opinion this is a misleading statement which implies that the admission of Jews remained below 20% in the years after 1918. In fact Hillel reports that in recent years the admission of jews to Harvard has been around 25% of the class. This means that almost half of the class are white and half of this white group are Jews. That seems like an amazing over-representation of Jews who are only 2% of our population. So, at least as many Jews as Asians are admitted to Harvard. No wonder the Asians are upset. I note that this article does not point out this Jewish bias in admissions at Harvard and neither did the Asians. Is this another manifestation of political correctness? Or is it an egregious example of racism? This problem is the real elephant in the room. This is the Jewish racism that dare not speak its name. Until lately.

    Whites will gradually disappear and the 110 year old Jewish black coalition will control the Asians and Hispanics through black crime and periodic riots.
     
    I don't think this is correct...

    Since California already has (very roughly) the future demographics you're considering, I think it serves as a good test-case.

    The Hispanic and Asian populations have been growing rapidly, and they tend to hold an increasing share of the political power, together with the large white population, though until very recently most of the top offices were still held by (elderly) whites. Whites would have much more political power, except that roughly half of them are still Republicans, and the Republican Party has almost none.

    In most of the urban areas, there's relatively little black crime these days since so many of the blacks have been driven away or sent off to prison. I'd also say that major black riots in CA are almost unthinkable since many of the local police forces are heavily Hispanic: they don't particularly like blacks, and might easily shoot the black rioters dead while being backed up by the politicians, and many of the blacks probably recognize this. Admittedly, CA always had a relatively small black population, but that didn't prevent enormous black crime and black riots in the past due to the different demographics.

    Meanwhile, Jewish-activists still possess enormous influence over CA politics, but they exert that influence through money and media, just like they do everywhere else in the country.

    hmm i don’t know that will be the case nationally. Southern cities like Atlanta will not have hispanic or white govt. Same with nyc, no need for blacks in harlem or bronx to leave if government aid continues to pay for rent controlled affordable housing. Same case can be made for most large northern cities like chicago, detroit, boston, philadelphia, DC, etc.

    So with future aa population of 14%, that’s 60 million blacks in america in 2060 timeframe, although that will have an increasing amount of immigration from africa, which tends to be more educated (at least 1st and 2nd generation).

    Asians will be about 8%, so that’s a poweful community of 40 million. I see tech and wall street with increasing amount of asian representations.

    What i would be interested in seeing if there will any maverick asian billionaires that could disrupt the narrative.

    Slightly off-topic, but the Erdeley quote is weirdly reminiscent of one by Frank Deford that appeared in his 1979 story on UVa (one of many that were highlighted upon his death earlier this year.

    There is always the sense that he'll be back in minute, that he just went down to the apothecary, or is over at the Sunoco station, kicking whitewalls.

    Erdeley:
    Thomas Jefferson, whose lore is so powerfully woven into everyday UVA life that you practically expect to glimpse the man still walking the grounds in his waistcoat and pantaloons.

    Hardly an egregious example of plagiarism, but an example of how unoriginal Erdeley is as a writer.

When President Nixon asked, "Henry, what about the Jews", the reply notably began, "There are Jews and there are Jews..." An unfavorable monolithic notion about Jews vis a vis human biodiversity is unjust.

    In his speech at the most recent American Renaissance conference Sam Dickson gave an interesting description of how it felt to be a segregationist during the civil rights movement. There were only a few national news outlets. They were all sympathetic with the civil rights movement.

    However, less civilized segregationists than Sam Dickson made it easy for the civil rights movement by responding violently to peaceful civil rights demonstrators.

    Segregationist violence made the civil rights legislation possible. If segregationists had responded with polite forbearance to the civil rights demonstrations, while waiting for the black ghetto riots that happened from 1964 to 1968, I doubt the civil rights legislation would have been passed.

    One would think he would keep his teenage girl friend separate from his teenage daughter. Oh well

    I believe the source for that is a memoir from 1873 written by Madison Hemings, a son born in 1805, well after the return from Paris.

  • Very sadly, and I say this as the spouse of a lifelong quilter, close attention to the quilt by the current crop of Cultural Revolutionaries will most likely lead to its demise or at least its burial deep deep in the vault of the museum. The quilt’s “offensiveness” will be found in: a white woman “appropriating” images of blacks (but only showing them in 4 of 42 quilt blocks) and, despite the words “I Am Free,” depicting them with “exaggerated” (no doubt by today’s standards “racist”) facial features and performing menial farm or household chores (no Reconstruction Congressman or state legislators depicted). And, her family once owned slaves!!

    Research revealed that Honstain, born in Ossining, Westchester County, N.Y., July 24, 1820, moved to lower Manhattan with her parents when she was 5 years old and remained in the area for the rest of her life. She was an adult in her mid-40s living in Brooklyn when she made this remarkable quilt. A number of the quilt’s pictorial blocks depict common sights and scenes of 19th-century New York City.

    Further research revealed that Honstain’s family owned slaves during her early childhood; she would have seen them freed by the time she was 7 years old in 1827, when all slaves in New York became free under the state’s gradual emancipation law.

    It appears from census records that the family’s freed slaves may have continued to live nearby on the same street. Honstain’s childhood memories of these events and the resulting changes in her family’s daily life may account for her depiction of African-Americans in a number of the blocks of her unique quilt.

    For a negative take, here's Katie McHugh:

    In 48 hours, Richard Spencer got results NPR struggled for years to achieve.

    We had Google on the run. I listen to NPR closely, and they went from being on defensive about James Damore’s heroic truth-telling to salivating over “domestic right-wing terrorism” after the Charlottesville death toll.

    If we thought HeilGate was bad, just wait until the fatal, fiery helicopter crashes happen.

    Richard Spencer has a kill count now and blood on his hands. Eric Clanton couldn’t kill a free speech supporter with a bike lock but a Spencer-organizer rally can kill a couple cops. Will Spencer’s fanboys will love him more than ever, especially because he has a kill count? Spencer: Three / Antifa: Zero!

    One can just hear them now: “They already call us Nazis, so why not identify as Nazis?” “They already call us murderers complicit in white supremacy, so why not try to murder some leftists?”

    Katie McHugh is being as dishonest as Terri McAuliffe is. Spencer is no more responsible for that girls’ death than Mcauliffe is. And as to those two state-troopers, thier helicopter had previously had problems, and may have had faulty maintenance:

    Moreover (from that article): “The helicopter had finished flying over downtown at around 4:42 p.m. and was en route to provide air support for the motorcade of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) when it crashed.”

    It is a waste of one's time arguing with someone who has no data to hand, much less the fundamental education and intellectual skills to make up the deficit. Like my ex-wife, you proceed from a misconstruction of the argument to pontificate about matters obviously far beyond your understanding of how the physical world works. I want you to type those names into a search engine and find out for yourself. If you prefer to go to a one-stop shop on these matters, go to http://www.pilotsfor911truth.org. Spend a few hours there, or however long it takes you to grasp the fundamentals, and get back to me. Please don't get back to me, or to anyone else, before you do.

    Having glanced at PilotsforTruth – and wondered how many hours you have spent on its surely hundreds of hours of evidence (of something) – I noted, as does the author of the Rational Wiki article on Pilots for Truth that they are unusual among conspiracy theorists in proposing no alternative theory to the “official” one they don’t find satisfying. How come they haven’t pointed to a massive CIA backed conspiracy? The answer appears to be in an honest recognition that all their technical data is potentislly inaccurate. E.g. records showing thd planes still in the air after the crashes could be wrong. Almost looks like start again time for those who believe some amazingly clever people confected it all for some reason very indirectly connected to the ME.

    Their mission statement specifically precludes that. That aside, since when, and in what court, is the defence required to prove someone else guilty in order to show his own client innocent beyond reasonable doubt? That they seek to establish physical facts and offer no alternative "theory" is to their credit, imbecile.

    WKPD:

    In 1787, Hemings, aged 14, accompanied Jefferson's youngest daughter Mary ("Polly") to London and then to Paris, where the widowed Jefferson, aged 44 at the time, was serving as the United States Minister to France. Hemings spent two years there. It is believed by most historians that Jefferson began a sexual relationship with Hemings in France or soon after their return to Monticello.

    Fourteen? I hadn't known that. Oh dear, Mr Jefferson.

    “Believed by most historians” = no actual evidence.

    The DNA test “proving” the Sally Hemings affair was done on a descendant of Sally’s son Eston who was born in 1808 when Thomas Jefferson was 64. The test indicated a Y chromosome match, suggesting the father was from the Jefferson line, but not necessarily Thomas. (His brother Randolph, for example, who was younger and had a reputation for socializing with the slaves, is another candidate.) From there, it’s just assumed TJ was the father of *all* her children. You have to make several leaps to claim he was schtupping a 14 year old slave. But when defaming the founders, it’s best to err on the side of scandal.

    In the build up to the bulldozing of the Jefferson monument, I bet Rolling Stone will publish a newly discovered account of the Jeffersons gangraping Sally on shards of broken glass.

    The Jefferson bros entered the slave quarters swigging beers and exchanging high fives.

    “Grab its motherf***ing leg,” she heard a voice say. And that’s when Sally knew she going to be raped …

    I knew an old black guy named “Washington Jefferson” (I know this sounds like I made this up just for this, but no).

    I think in the 1960s the internal debate among blacks was whether to pursue full recognition of rights as Americans or whether to regard themselves as a nation-within-nation. The official history says that the Civil Rights movement was about a struggle for the former and we just haven’t completely gotten there but I think the the reality is that the latter better approximates where black Americans who aren’t the Conservatives’ favorite black friends on Fox News are and have been. The Radicals won that debate and have influenced the telling of history to the younger generations. I think the Left always wanted it that way anyhow.

    It doesn't especially concern me, since Lenin more than anyone else to create Ukraine. As I have made clear on separate occasions. It does however illuminate the village cargo cult essence of svidomism. (Though I suppose this, too, might be useful).

    Anyhow, it would be one thing if the demontages were linked to Lenin, whose statues were produced industrially and have little artistic value. But they're not. It includes unique statues, statues of Soviet generals who liberated Ukraine from the Nazis (its fate would have been quite sad it were not), and even statues of Imperial Russian figures, e.g. that of Konstantin Romanov in Odessa, who have absolutely nothing to do with the USSR by definition.

    There are the actions of a deranged mob of Year Zero ideologues.

    Trying to negate or even belittle the history of the Ukrainian nation in the 21st century is beyond the pale of sanity, Anatoly. You do believe that the world is not flat? To put it succinctly, to try to relegate the history of Ukraine to some nefarious plot put into motion by Poles, Austrians and Hungarian generals is at the very least intellectually dishonest, and at most an exercise in irredentism gone terribly and comically awry (are you serious?). But then again, you’d have to admit that you’re nothing more than a supreme dilittente when it comes to knowing anything at all about Ukrainian history, never having read even one single book devoted to the subject matter. At least according to your own very detailed log of books that you’ve read: http://akarlin.com/reviews/:-)

    You have reading comprehension problems to have confused Federal 8A government contacts with Section 8 housing.

    8A contracts are federal contracts granted to "socially and economically disadvantaged individual(s)."

    https://www.sba.gov/contracting/government-contracting-programs/8a-business-development-program/eligibility-requirements/8a-requirements-overview

    The business must be majority-owned (51 percent or more) and controlled/managed by socially and economically disadvantaged individual(s).

    The individual(s) controlling and managing the firm on a full-time basis must meet the SBA requirement for disadvantage, by proving both social disadvantage and economic disadvantage.

     

    http://sbda.com/sba_8(a).htm


    Definition of Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Individuals

    Socially disadvantaged individuals are those who have been subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias because of their identities as members of groups without regard to their individual qualities. The social disadvantage must stem from circumstances beyond their control.

    In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the following individuals are presumed to be socially disadvantaged:

    • Black Americans;


    • Hispanic Americans (persons with origins from Latin America, South America, Portugal and Spain);


    • Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, and Native Hawaiians);


    • Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Japan, China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Korea, Samoa, Guam, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands [Republic of Palau], Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Laos, Cambodia [Kampuchea], Taiwan, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Macao, Hong Kong, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru);


    • Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal);


    • And members of other groups designated from time to time by the SBA.

    We’ve been over this. 8a is not given to anyone with over $250,000 in assets, as your own link indicates. This means most Asians can’t use it anyway (not that they need to).

    The whole program should be done away with, of course.

    What is funny is that you can’t accept that Asians have higher SAT scores than whites, which pretty much proves that they can (and do) outperform without AA. You WN idiots can’t come to terms with that.

    But Section 8a should be removed just so that WN wiggers don’t have anything to hide behind, since Asians don’t need it to excel.

    I've never mentioned anything about SAT scores because they are irrelevant to anything whatsoever that I've posted.

    SAT scores are your irrelevant preoccupation, not mine.

    I'm just a person that detests government diversity schemes, group entitlements, and federal protected class groups.

    Like it or not, Asians are one of many federal protected class groups entitled by law.

    I'm not a WN nor did I ever claim to be a WN; just another example of your fevered and imagined conversations with me.

    You are fairly stupid to claim that "most Asians" are rich.

    You appear to be a grossly ignorant and arrogant dickhead.

  • A man posted a comment on another site that stated the police had shut down the rally an hour before Fields drove into a crowd and the rally participants had all left. There were no rally participants in the vicinity of the lefties, who were conducting a march down a street and came to a neighborhood whose residents did not want them to enter, so the lefties were milling around in an intersection when Fields drove into the crowd.

    The Kirkpatrick version above states that some of the lefties were attacking cars and might have attacked Fields’ car, causing him to panic and attempt to escape. It seems unlikely that Fields planned an attack on this march, which according the post I cite, occurred an hour after the end of the rally in a different location. The video shows lefties attacking Fields’ car before he backed up.

    Eyewitness testimony is of course unreliable, but if only lefties and some residents were around the scene, phone videos may not be offered.

    I checked media sources after the event and observed a universal rush to a judgement that Fields had committed a terrorist atttack — in the absence of any evidence about what his motive might have been. Sessions was reported to have said that the occurrence satisfied the requirements of the relevant terrorism statute.

    Another take on Spencer. Excerpt:

    First, a disclaimer: I sympathize broadly with Unite The Right’s stated goals, including preserving the statue of General Lee and keeping whites from becoming a minority in our own country. I also know, like, and admire some of the people involved in CTR, namely Chris Cantwell and Pax Dickinson. That said, what happened yesterday was an absolute unmitigated nuclear disaster. The planning was amateurish, the messaging was unfocused, the optics were horrendous, the expectations were naive, and the outcome was all too predictable. To keep this short, I’ll use bullet points.

    • This had the fingerprints of its planners all over it, and that’s not a good thing. Richard Spencer is a four-star Dunning-Kruger case whose unshakably bourgeois mentality makes him think he’s going to be the guy who makes White Nationalism socially respectable among the cultural elite. Instead, he consistently underestimates his opposition and ends up looking like a goofbag over and over again, which is made worse by the fact that he never learns a damn thing from any of his many, many mistakes. This also had the fingerprints of TRS all over it (with the unfortunate Mike Enoch as its in-person ambassador). TRS’s schtick is simply to be as childishly edgy as possible, in the belief that the day can be won by indulging in the adolescent compulsion to shock.
     

    Spencer needs to take a long sabbatical, announce to the world he is withdrawing from a public role to undergo diversity training.

  • @Ron Unz

    Whites will gradually disappear and the 110 year old Jewish black coalition will control the Asians and Hispanics through black crime and periodic riots.
     
    I don't think this is correct...

    Since California already has (very roughly) the future demographics you're considering, I think it serves as a good test-case.

    The Hispanic and Asian populations have been growing rapidly, and they tend to hold an increasing share of the political power, together with the large white population, though until very recently most of the top offices were still held by (elderly) whites. Whites would have much more political power, except that roughly half of them are still Republicans, and the Republican Party has almost none.

    In most of the urban areas, there's relatively little black crime these days since so many of the blacks have been driven away or sent off to prison. I'd also say that major black riots in CA are almost unthinkable since many of the local police forces are heavily Hispanic: they don't particularly like blacks, and might easily shoot the black rioters dead while being backed up by the politicians, and many of the blacks probably recognize this. Admittedly, CA always had a relatively small black population, but that didn't prevent enormous black crime and black riots in the past due to the different demographics.

    Meanwhile, Jewish-activists still possess enormous influence over CA politics, but they exert that influence through money and media, just like they do everywhere else in the country.

    I’d also say that major black riots in CA are almost unthinkable since many of the local police forces are heavily Hispanic: they don’t particularly like blacks, and might easily shoot the black rioters dead

    Oh, would you stop being a make-believe pundit, Ron? That is some commentary you copped from an OJ-era LA Times expose.

    For a negative take, here's Katie McHugh:

    In 48 hours, Richard Spencer got results NPR struggled for years to achieve.

    We had Google on the run. I listen to NPR closely, and they went from being on defensive about James Damore’s heroic truth-telling to salivating over “domestic right-wing terrorism” after the Charlottesville death toll.

    If we thought HeilGate was bad, just wait until the fatal, fiery helicopter crashes happen.

    Richard Spencer has a kill count now and blood on his hands. Eric Clanton couldn’t kill a free speech supporter with a bike lock but a Spencer-organizer rally can kill a couple cops. Will Spencer’s fanboys will love him more than ever, especially because he has a kill count? Spencer: Three / Antifa: Zero!

    Thank you for bringing that photo to your posts. Anybody familiar with 3D CADD sees something similar on a daily basis.
    In the cyber-world of 3D CADD, multiple "solid objects" are able and often do occupy the same space at the same time by simply disabling the collision detection function. In the physical world, collision detection cannot be turned off. In minds unfamiliar with the boundary conditions imposed by the physical world, any number of solid objects can occupy the same space at the same time, so for them, anything is possible.

    What luck that the spoon that feeds them consistently stops at their mouth.

    You’re welcome Erebus. Thanks for the kind words, and especially for your efforts here to educate others. ‘Good point about two objects trying to occupy the same space at the same time. ‘Can’t be done in the real world, but as you note, easily achieved with 3D graphics, or even with 2D graphics, and forced perspective.

    Now, let’s have a look at that piece of wreckage photographed on the Pentagon lawn.Army Times staff photographer, Mark D. Faram

    The first thing to notice is that this is a fragment of aluminum skin only, with no structural part of any aircraft showing. The second thing to notice is that the fragment of wreckage appears to be fairly pristine, having somehow escaped getting charred or burnt in the 757′s ostensible collision with the Pentagon. The next thing to notice is that the fragment has come to rest on the Pentagon’s lawn, without any apparent damage or disturbance to the lawn or grass growing there, but delicately, and rather precisely posed, as we shall see.

    Apparently, the photographer saw the wreckage, or was directed to it, and walked all the way out to it from the Pentagon without taking any pictures on the way — at least, none that we know of — and didn’t take a picture until he had the wreckage between himself and the Pentagon, when finally he composed, and exposed his now-famous picture.

    So far so good, I guess.

    I found another picture of the wreckage, but it’s taken from a different angle, and appears to have been moved. It does include part of a person, so we can get a sense of scale, and see that it’s not a very big fragment. We have also the text on the yellow tape to see that the image hasn’t been reversed. I can’t orient myself between the two images very well, but something is not adding up. Anybody see it?
    Some researchers, James Hanson among others, have claimed that the fragment is really from AA 965, which crashed in Columbia in 1995.
    Finally, I found this, which seems to settle the question of whether or not this fragment came from an American Airlines 757.

    Photo reconstruction by “Brian”

    http://www.rense.com/general31/confirm.htm

    It’s a perfect fit, by Jove!

    So, it’s quite an amazing coincidence, really, where the photographer walked out to a specific spot on 9/11 to take a photo of an aircraft wreckage fragment that would later line up exactly with existing photos of a 757 to prove the fragment’s bona fides.

    Gosh, what a photographer!

    You may have a case somewhere there in the pile of photographic evidence but nobody now 16 years later will be able to sort it out. What is the chain of custody of photographs? Were they tampered? When? By whom? So all you got left is the disbelief and derision with which you will not convince the believers in the orthodox version. In the real world whoever comes with the story first and has the loudest megaphone and has power to control access to evidence wins. It is no longer about the evidence. It is about the power of beliefs. Nothing will change it. It simply will become irrelevant like whether Jesus walked on the water on not after 2000 years of decay of Christianity became pretty much irrelevant. Look at JFK. We will never know. And do not fool yourself that this time it will be different. No death bed confessions of alleged conspirators will anything. You and WoZ are very similar in one respect.

    The Celts sacked Rome in 390 B.C. and (aside from plunder) pulled down a few statues, but the people of Rome kept having an above-replacement birthrate and therefore recovered and rebuilt.
    In 410 A.D. the Visgoths sacked Rome and pulled down even more statues during the mayhem and robbery. Rome had a more aged population then, and a low birthrate. She didn't recover this time.

    It's not the statue, but the self-confidence and love of one's own identity as a people that propel a group to grow in numbers and prosper. Whites are having their history demonized and are constantly being insulted (cuckmercials) and accused of misdeeds (bogus claims of white priveledge and faux hate crimes). Its on purpose guys.

    If you are an adult who's so involved with Facebooking that you are concerned ---either way--- with whether the Government does or does not regulate this garbage, then it is likely that you have an emotional problem.

    The best way to deal with the FB Problem is a mixture of boredom, mild contempt, mockery, condescension, and genuine concern for the Facebookers that you interact with in the real world.

    'Hey Karen--How many Likes did you receive today?' [And really drill into this concept of adults seeking 'Likes'.] 'Does it bother you if you don't get a certain number of Likes each day? [Etc.]

    'So...You learned this on Facebook?' [After they answer, YAWN...and then just start talking about a completely different topic as if the preceding FB topic didn't even exist.]

Because that's what the left (composed mostly of unattractive and entitled white women, unmanly white men and blacks) is all about. The last thing these losers want is a reasonable discussion grounded in a factual, historical context. All facts are hate facts to them because the only weapon in their arsenal is irrationality.

    You’re suggesting he pit coolness, rationality and reasonable limits against feelz.

    Nope.

    I’m suggesting he pit dominance against desperation. If he’d been doing that all along, his wife would already be on the same page.

    Stop blaming Jews for what you dislike about the United States. The Ashkenazim are the most superior race in existence. As intelligence becomes more important to our computer dominated economy the wealth and power of the Jews will increase. Get used to it. You can't change it.

    I trust John is aware of the current AR feature re Sam Dickson. Dickson has been right at the side of Jared Taylor for every AR Conference, from the initial one in 1994. Sam mentions Revilo Oliver and attributes to him an exceptional brilliance. But Professor Oliver was also feverishly critical of Jews. Henry Kissinger was no mental lightweight. When President Nixon asked, “Henry, what about the Jews”, the reply notably began, “There are Jews and there are Jews…” An unfavorable monolithic notion about Jews vis a vis human biodiversity is unjust.

    In his speech at the most recent American Renaissance conference Sam Dickson gave an interesting description of how it felt to be a segregationist during the civil rights movement. There were only a few national news outlets. They were all sympathetic with the civil rights movement.

    However, less civilized segregationists than Sam Dickson made it easy for the civil rights movement by responding violently to peaceful civil rights demonstrators.

    Segregationist violence made the civil rights legislation possible. If segregationists had responded with polite forbearance to the civil rights demonstrations, while waiting for the black ghetto riots that happened from 1964 to 1968, I doubt the civil rights legislation would have been passed.

  • That’s the solution reached in Charlottesville for Washington Park, which was created in the 1920′s for black citizens. It was renamed Booker T. Washington Park in 2001.

    I think that black mayors and politicians with Washington-related stuff should all be asked questions like “Do you believe that George Washington was a great American patriot?” Anything other than enthusiastic agreement must be given an extreme response. The same with all similar American founders and patriots.

    In a related story, the female African-American mayor of Baltimore had all confederate monuments removed in the dark of night:

    “With no immediate public notice, no fund-raising, and no plan for a permanent location for the monuments once they had been excised — all things city officials once believed they would need — the mayor watched in the wee hours on Wednesday as contractors with cranes protected by a contingent of police officers lifted the monuments from their pedestals and rolled them away on flatbed trucks.”

    “The mayor has the right to protect her city,” she said. “For me, the statues represented pain, and not only did I want to protect my city from any more of that pain, I also wanted to protect my city from any of the violence that was occurring around the nation. We don’t need that in Baltimore.”

    She'd have done better to protect "her city" from pain and violence by removing blacks from it, herself included.

    All societies have certain organizing principles. Freedom of speech is not a first-order good; it exists only to facilitate the flourishing of the society along the lines established by those principles. In America today one of those principles is that discrimination based on race is immoral; people who disagree with this have only one goal — creating a society in which it is not one of those principles. If we do not want to allow this to happen, we should not permit anyone to argue in favor of it.
     
    The true voice of the modern political left and centre-left - totalitarian and utterly unconcerned that it is trampling on the supposed principles that the liberal left of the C19th and C20th regarded as fundamental, and crucial.

    These were the people, remember, for whom the statement attributed to Voltaire that "I might hate what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it" was supposedly a ringing declaration of principle, as they insisted that subversive political screeds, blasphemies, obscenities and obscene works of supposed art directly and consciously intended to undermine the "organising principles" of society were all vital components of a freedom of speech that was fundamental to democracy and even to civilisation.

    It's past time for all on the right and centre-right, and even those who regard themselves as traditional liberals and moderates, to face up to the fact that there is a serious issue with the political left and centre-left in the US and UK, in that it now openly espouses harassment, blacklisting, legal suppression and even violence against dissidents.

    If you don't stand against them, you will lose the First Amendment, and any remaining pretence at political freedom of speech in the UK and European countries.

    This is NPR's take on Brazilian slavery: 4 million imported in 300 years.

    http://www.npr.org/sections/parallels/2013/11/12/244563532/photos-reveal-harsh-detail-of-brazils-history-with-slavery

    "Slavery in Brazil lasted for 300 years, and it imported some 4 million Africans to the country."

    PBS - Slaves shipped to America -

    "And how many of these 10.7 million Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That’s right: a tiny percentage."

    Every African here that didn't voluntarily immigrate came from population of less than 400,000. Pretty impressive.

  • @Thomm
    That is completely false. You just memorized that from some bogus site.

    Section 8a is used more by white women than by Asians, and Asians get excluded from it due to high income. It should be done away with altogether, of course.

    Asians face discrimination in University admissions, as the main article describes.

    H1-Bs are awarded to Asians because white countries don't produce enough people who qualify.

    Plus, Asian SAT scores are consistently higher than whites. That proves that Asian success was not due to AA.

    You have reading comprehension problems to have confused Federal 8A government contacts with Section 8 housing.

    8A contracts are federal contracts granted to “socially and economically disadvantaged individual(s).”

    https://www.sba.gov/contracting/government-contracting-programs/8a-business-development-program/eligibility-requirements/8a-requirements-overview

    The business must be majority-owned (51 percent or more) and controlled/managed by socially and economically disadvantaged individual(s).

    The individual(s) controlling and managing the firm on a full-time basis must meet the SBA requirement for disadvantage, by proving both social disadvantage and economic disadvantage.

    http://sbda.com/sba_8(a).htm

    Definition of Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Individuals

    Socially disadvantaged individuals are those who have been subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias because of their identities as members of groups without regard to their individual qualities. The social disadvantage must stem from circumstances beyond their control.

    In the absence of evidence to the contrary, the following individuals are presumed to be socially disadvantaged:

    • Black Americans;

    • Hispanic Americans (persons with origins from Latin America, South America, Portugal and Spain);

    • Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, and Native Hawaiians);


    • Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Japan, China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Korea, Samoa, Guam, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands [Republic of Palau], Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Laos, Cambodia [Kampuchea], Taiwan, Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Macao, Hong Kong, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru);

    • Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal);

    • And members of other groups designated from time to time by the SBA.

    We've been over this. 8a is not given to anyone with over $250,000 in assets, as your own link indicates. This means most Asians can't use it anyway (not that they need to).

    The whole program should be done away with, of course.

    What is funny is that you can't accept that Asians have higher SAT scores than whites, which pretty much proves that they can (and do) outperform without AA. You WN idiots can't come to terms with that.

    But Section 8a should be removed just so that WN wiggers don't have anything to hide behind, since Asians don't need it to excel.

    I take your point; you meant "financing, not "renting." Renting implied a temporary transfer of posession (but not ownership) rather than amortisation of the costs to transfer ownership.

    I was perpelexed by the disturbing logisitic of returning rented food to its owner. (Perhaps now for use as fertiliser...?)

    I meant renting, using a common colloquialism. Perhaps in a college bar, for example, you may have heard the following expression: you can’t buy beer, you can only rent it.
