Dalai Lama says ‘Europe belongs to Europeans’

The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, said Wednesday that “Europe belongs to the Europeans” and that refugees should return to their native countries to rebuild them. …

“I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.

    We are reaching levels of through the looking glass that shouldn't be possible when non-white religious leaders virtue signal about saving Europeans from colonization.

    It's practically a Daily Mail headline. Good strategy tho. Who else is going to prompt the Han to GTFO of Tibet but a newly self confident European alliance? If not the Pope at least the Pepe.

    The Latin Mass Catholics who dress and breed like Mormons did in the sixties like to opine that if Holy Mother Church survived the Borgia popes, she can survive Pope Francis Albert. That's true, but after this guy there are going to be more just like him, and while the Roman Catholic Church will survive as a brand name, the things that differentiate it from Mainline Protestantism are probably dead meat.

  15. The Dalai Lama has compassion for us. How do I know this? Yet another true story:

    A psychologist I was seeing in Boulder was a Buddhist who had been on the welcoming committee in Boston when the Dalai Lama came on his very first visit to the United States. The committee took their honored guest to the aquarium there. (A giant glass cylinder with a spiral ramp around it that you walk down while you look in at the fish, sharks and eels. Sort of a maritime Guggenheim.)

    Whenever a fish swam up to the glass and looked out at him, the Dalai Lama stopped, looked at it and quietly mumbled something. My psychologist asked him what he was saying. The Dalai Lama explained that he was saying a prayer for each creature he met that the creature would come back reincarnated to a better life, not confined inside a glass cylinder with a bunch of other creatures.

    Maybe he is praying now that we will have our own countries back.

    I have a friendly-acquaintance sort of guitar pal-plays all fretted instruments, builds and repairs guitars, et al-who is in his early 60s and lives in a college town some distance from here. He's fairly buff, has a full head of dirty-blond Brian Jones hair, and is reportedly "bejingled". He tells me, and I have observed him around these girls, that with each incoming crop of zaftig 18/19 year old cheer captains and other such Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas/Missouri/ downstate Illinois coeds, he winds up tapping as many as he can handle, either as a one nighter or for a while until they get bored. (He did have a vasectomy and still wraps it. No fool, he.)

    But what he really wants is not teen poon, but a woman somewhat younger-say 35-50, not fat, not stupid, no tats or piercings, either no kids or they are older and out of her hair, someone he can walk around with and not feel weird, someone with half a brain he can talk about substantive things with. Absolutely not to be found anywhere. At least, not around such a college town.

    Whenever I saw articles or TV presentations on Hugh Hefner, I always thought he had to be an idiot for chasing women with that much age differential. He would have been happier with a woman say twenty years younger, who still looked good but not a sex bomb any more, someone with a similar level of fame and some money of her own.

    Tibetan Buddhism is a breathtakingly beautiful spiritual tradition that developed in isolation. They are rightly very proud of it, and their cultural pride takes the edge off the nihilism characteristic of other schools of Buddhism.

  31. There is a sizable Tibetan community in Madison, and our family has close friends who are Tibetans. Quite a few on our neighborhood.

    The main refugee areas in India are remote mountain Tibetan towns in Himachal Pradesh in India. The Tibetans all live together. They do more to preserve their culture that way.

    The Tibetans who come to the US still do a lot to preserve their culture, but the kids are very Americanized.

    That is why His Holiness wants the refugees to stay together as much as possible and eventually retake Tibet.

  33. “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.

    The Dalai Lama is talking his book. He wants the Chinese to stay out of Tibet so he’s making the case for the current inhabitants of a land getting to keep that land because, well, they’re the current inhabitants.

    He’s full of BS. Ethnic French have no natural right to the patch of land currently called France. Same for the Germans and English, etc. A land belongs to those are willing and able to defend it.

    What is now France once belonged to the Celts and was called Gaul. I’m sure some other group had it before that and called it something different. And before that some other group probably had it and called it something different than that. And so and so on and so on.

    I hate the current invasion of Europe and the United States (especially since the whites are losing their lands without even fighting), but to act as though it’s “wrong” or that because we’re the current residents of these lands gives us permanent right to them is ridiculous and shows no knowledge of history.

    The land belongs to those strong enough to defend it whether from foreign soldiers or some stupid new ideology that preaches multi-culturalism. (See Japan for defense against the latter.) That’s the way that it’s always been and the way it will alway be.

    You sure don’t know anything about European history do you? France is a German name for the various tribes that invaded starting 1,700 years ago.

    But the Celts never left. If you ever go to France tour the rural areas. There are Celtic not French festivals all over.

    France is still a Gallic Celtic nation despite the German name and Latin language.

    The British government got DNA from the 40,000 year old cheddar man body found in Cheddar Gorge. They compared his DNA with DNA of thousands of British people. Turns out that the majority of the British people are not Anglo Saxon’s Norman’s Romans or even ancient Celts.

    Add that to the long list of ideas that the Boulder mush heads get wrong.

    The pacifist nature of Buddhists is greatly overblown. Its largely virtue signaling noral superiority that started a long time ago, but in any case, the Dalai understands the idea of a blood and soil. Probably also understands how immigration and invasion are kissing cousins.

    As for nonviolence, just ask the Rohingya of their peaceful ways.

    Even here in the US, I’ve seen refugee communities carry on their longstanding quarrels over territory and culture just like the crips and the bloods, even though they have literally won the lottery and are now able to bask in Iphones and Diversity over here.

    Ive seen the Buddhists and Rohingya here in the US up close. Not a lot of incense and robes, but a lot of hate. And not the ‘hate’ defined by Twitter, but the kind that gets a guys head removed by a kitchen knife.

    Interestiny, the shitlib people that work in the refugee resettlement and ancillary services (public included) racket all seem to have a convenient blind spot to this tendency to prefer one’s own culture, affirm their cultural superiority - even when removed from their land, and retain deep ties to said land even when ‘assimilating’ to the gravy train over here.

    A lot of supposedly smart and educated people that can’t see evidence sitting right in front if them. Not surprisingly the majority are single white college educated women.

    These (and a few soft men) make policy, agitate for legal and political ‘change’, vote like crazy, and facilitate the massive system of handouts.

    Pathological altruism does not fit anymore. There is something much darker at work.

    That's fine. You're not Tibetan and neither am I. I am not a proponent of the Dalai Lama royal lineage ruling the United States in case there was any confusion.

    Tibetan society is not one based on individual freedoms. It was more like European feudal society. Traditional Tibetan society may very well have to change for the modern era, but it is not really my position to tell them how to live their lives.

    I certainly find Tibetan Buddhism intriguing, if not insane at times, and I hope that diverse human societies can survive both Chinese Communism and Western consumerism.

  39. To quote commenter AnotherDad

    … it’s not too hard to figure out where some of this comes from. Beyond just being a smart and decent guy, the Dalai Lama had his own nation hijacked by the Chicoms to the point he had to flee to India, followed by the Chinese trying to seal the steal by demographically inundating Tibet with Han colonists. So he’s a good bit more aware of what a “nation” means, and sensitive to what losing your nation feels like. (Something a lot of white people are going to be feeling in the years ahead.)

  40. Europeans? Who are they?

    UK period drama is problematic because the genre feeds audiences the completely false idea that, through history, most British people have been white, Crazy Rich Asians star explains.

    Gemma Chan – Period dramas have limited the opportunities for diverse actors

    She told the Press Association: “I think for a long time a lot of the UK’s output was period film and that is a particular thing, or used to be a particular thing in the past.

    “…I think it’s an interesting thing, period dramas, in that we have an idea that we have got from other films, that have been made previously, of what the past was like – which isn’t necessarily accurate.

    “I find that really interesting, the idea of what were the demographics of the country. Actually people of colour didn’t show up in the UK like 50 years ago, they have been here for a long time.

    “But when your art and your culture and storytelling doesn’t reflect that, then the public get a skewed version of their own history in a way.”

    Citing the example of the 140,000 members of the Chinese labour corp, who were part of the Allied war effort in World War I, she said: “I have studied World War I about three times in school, over and over again we learned it, and I never heard about it.”

    Not meant as being funny (= no satire!): He's just a down to earth guy. If you compare him to some high-speed western intellectuals (no, I don't name one now), you might want to start to meditate right away...or to pray...

    When in Europe, the Dalai Lama discourages (and disillusions, hopefully!) Westerners regularly who ask him about Buddhism and eastern wisdom and the like.

    The standard response of his holiness to such questions: You're much better off with your religion, especially because you can understand it much better.

    I love him for his hipness, really! - And I mean that literally and I think the reference to the old hippie-sayings and quotes like Love the one you're with! - or Be Here Now! is obvious.

    Despite my story from Hippy Dippy Land, I do not idolize the Dalai Lama. You are absolutely right: most Boulder Buddhists have no idea that he is sort of the opposite of what they think he is.

    My opinion of him and his culture is neutral at best. From what I've read, the practices over there are extremely rigid, without much concern for the kind of individual freedoms we find natural. You probably would not be very happy there. I know I wouldn't.

    They should have their country back, though. China stole it. The tiger will eat as much as it can as long as we keep feeding it.

    Maybe the Dalai Lama expresses support for our views about our countries because of what foreigners have done to his country.

    Add that to the long list of ideas that the Boulder mush heads get wrong.

    The pacifist nature of Buddhists is greatly overblown. Its largely virtue signaling noral superiority that started a long time ago, but in any case, the Dalai understands the idea of a blood and soil. Probably also understands how immigration and invasion are kissing cousins.

    As for nonviolence, just ask the Rohingya of their peaceful ways.

    Even here in the US, I’ve seen refugee communities carry on their longstanding quarrels over territory and culture just like the crips and the bloods, even though they have literally won the lottery and are now able to bask in Iphones and Diversity over here.

    Ive seen the Buddhists and Rohingya here in the US up close. Not a lot of incense and robes, but a lot of hate. And not the ‘hate’ defined by Twitter, but the kind that gets a guys head removed by a kitchen knife.

    Interestiny, the shitlib people that work in the refugee resettlement and ancillary services (public included) racket all seem to have a convenient blind spot to this tendency to prefer one’s own culture, affirm their cultural superiority – even when removed from their land, and retain deep ties to said land even when ‘assimilating’ to the gravy train over here.

    A lot of supposedly smart and educated people that can’t see evidence sitting right in front if them. Not surprisingly the majority are single white college educated women.

    These (and a few soft men) make policy, agitate for legal and political ‘change’, vote like crazy, and facilitate the massive system of handouts.

    The trouble with Buddhism is its nihilistic core. Mahayana Buddhism is an improvement insofar as it attempts to restore eternal meaning with the oxymoronic bodhisattva vows:

    However innumerable sentient beings are, I vow to save them.
    However inexhaustible the defilements are, I vow to extinguish them.
    However immeasurable the dharmas are, I vow to master them.
    However incomparable enlightenment is, I vow to attain it.

    Yeah. The thing is, even if these guys are in fact the assassins, there's nothing that points to the Russian regime.

    Novichuk is supposed to be 10 times more potent than VX. And VX is so potent that a drop the size of a pinhead on your skin is enough to kill you in minutes. And yet, most of the people exposed actually lived. That indicates to me that the stuff was probably very old and deteriorated. So why would the Russian regime use expired nerve agent?

    And that brings up another question. Why would the Putin regime use such a conspicuous method of assassination -- one that pointed directly to them? Wouldn't it be easier and safer to arrange an "accident" of some sort? Or a "mugging?" Surely the ex-KGB would have a whole arsenal of killing methods that were more discreet.

    I think the Russian mafia is a much more credible suspect: some Novichuk went missing about twenty years ago. Who knows what sort of shady dealings Skripal might have been involved in? He was an ex-spy, after all. Or it could have been a false flag operation. Those have been known to occur.

    Lot, not a big Putin fan. (Rather than "Greater Russia", if i were a Russian, i'd want a slightly smaller, and much more Russian, Russia.)

    And common sense suggests that this was some sort of Russian intelligence operation.

    However, the very reason common sense tells one that is the very reason i can't quite see all the hysterics.

    This guy Skripal was playing the "spy game" and was a *double agent*. I'm totally on board--morally--with Russians who spied for the West during the communist era, because they believed the system was evil--it was. But the spy game has its code, like the mafia. You sellout your team, and your team will consider you the worst sort of rat and try and kill you. You know this going in.

    (Yes, in the US, we've let scummy filth like Ames and Walker and Pollard and Hanssen and so forth get away with prison. I'd argue that that whimpy weakness is of a piece with illegal aliens, open borders--a sloppy, weak, feminized unseriousness about defending yourself. In a serious nation they would have been shot--no, drawn and quartered and burned.)

    Anyway, that's the point. Skripal knew the rules, the code, going in. If he felt he was "doing the right thing"--fine. (Though i find that argument a stretch after the fall of the Soviet Union.)

    It's not like Putin--or whoever green lighted this--was out trying to kill an actual Briton. They were killing a fellow Russian spy, who was a traitor to his spy team and knew full well what doing that entailed.

    This is not to say this is ok. What Putin essentially did was renege on what--i assume--was the subtext of the spy swap that freed Skripal. (You get yours back, we get ours back--cases closed.) If Putin is going to do this nonsense, then he really can have no serious complaint about say the CIA running operations in Russia to assassinate their US spies. That's just stupid.

    Putin has also outed himself as an unreliable "partner". You do a spy deal with him and ... he reneges. There's no reason for anyone to then do any more such deals with him. If he was getting a rating on Amazon as a seller he'd be getting a one star review.

    Tibetan society is not one based on individual freedoms. It was more like European feudal society. Traditional Tibetan society may very well have to change for the modern era, but it is not really my position to tell them how to live their lives.

    I certainly find Tibetan Buddhism intriguing, if not insane at times, and I hope that diverse human societies can survive both Chinese Communism and Western consumerism.

    And they could have just shot the guy, instead they created a massive biohazard, murdered a British innocent bystander, sickened others, and inconvenienced thousands in the area. Standing with England in its response should be automatic, Trump's response was correct and well-measured.

    My view on Russia policy is they should have a completely free hand in Syria and the ex-USSR, except the Baltics. We should also find a way to apologize for our misdeeds in bombing Serbia, wrong on its merits and a stupid provocation against Russia.

    ... it’s not too hard to figure out where some of this comes from. Beyond just being a smart and decent guy, the Dalai Lama had his own nation hijacked by the Chicoms to the point he had to flee to India, followed by the Chinese trying to seal the steal by demographically inundating Tibet with Han colonists. So he’s a good bit more aware of what a “nation” means, and sensitive to what losing your nation feels like. (Something a lot of white people are going to be feeling in the years ahead.)
     

    Losing your nation? As a “millennial,” I can’t say that I’ve ever had one. It must be nice.

    And according to China, Tibet belongs to the Chinese.

    It’s sort of an East Asian Poland, stuck between two nations somewhat fearful, or at best mistrustful, of each other. Policy advisers in Peking tell their boss: “If we don’t control Tibet, India will take it!” And I suppose people in New Delhi say the converse thing.

    I was struck by the fact that he adopted two quite distinct manners for his personal encounters. [...] To us round-eyes, he was the Laughing Buddha you may have seen on TV, all smiles and merry quips.
     
    Is it possible that the Dalai Lama's occasional White Supremacist comments are given because he expects a particular audience at a particular time/place wants to hear them? A religious zen-master move.

    The May 2016 "They Have to Go Back" interview was with German conservative standard-bearer Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung just at the time conservative pressure had forced Merkel to abandon her wild "there is no limit" (direct quote from Merkel, Sept. 2015) Islamic refugee policy.

    The September 2018 white-supremacist comments from Racist Lama were given, quote, "at a conference in Sweden's third-largest city of Malmo." We know that Islamic migrants have demonstrated, rioted, etc., against White Supremacy in recent years there, and that some locals are worried. The white-supremacist Sweden Democrats were the largest party in southern Sweden, around Malmo (see here; Malmo is at the southern tip; Sweden Democrats = yellow).

    How is that analogous? Indians are a different race. Chinese and Tibetans are part of the same race and language family: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Tibetan
    , @Numinous
    Not sure why you are positing an equivalence between India and China in this matter. The Dalai Lama chose to escape to India for refuge half a century ago and continues to reside here (I'm in India.) No one's holding him here; he was free to go to any other country that would have him, but he chose India. The Buddhist Tibetan country of Bhutan (sandwiched between India and China) also chooses to have diplomatic relations solely with India, and pretty much outsources its foreign policy to India.

    There's ample evidence to counter your assumption of Machiavellian strategizing. India has never controlled, or attempted to control any part of Tibet; the one exception being the invasion of Ladakh (a small portion of Western Tibet) in the 19th century, but then invasions had been launched from Ladakh into Kashmir in the past, so this was more like payback. There's no desire in India for conquests north of the Himalayas. China, on the other hand, considers Tibet part of its historic empire, as it indeed has been for certain periods.

    India is mistrustful of China because China invaded India in 1962 and has since then persistently shored up the Pakistan military, whose raison d'etre is enmity with India. China is mistrustful of India because, well, they are commies; it's in their nature to be mistrustful.

    , @DB Cooper
    "Policy advisers in Peking tell their boss: “If we don’t control Tibet, India will take it!” And I suppose people in New Delhi say the converse thing."

    Tibet is of course part of China longer than the United States is a country. Only pseudo historians or Indians say otherwise. But India did take it. In 1951, four years after the Raj has already gone, India invaded and annexed South Tibet, including historic Tawang. Tawang is the birthplace of the Sixth Dalai Lama and home to a four hundred years old Tibetan monastery. In 1962, having already annexed South Tibet, India pushed further north in an attempt take more of Tibet, but was defeated in a short border war with China.

    In case people couldn't locate South Tibet, the place was renamed to the so called 'Arunachal Pradesh' by India in 1987 and made it a state. In 2009 South Tibet/Arunachal Pradesh officially became an United Nation recognized disputed territory, along with India's other, Kashmir.

    Lot, not a big Putin fan. (Rather than "Greater Russia", if i were a Russian, i'd want a slightly smaller, and much more Russian, Russia.)

    And common sense suggests that this was some sort of Russian intelligence operation.

    However, the very reason common sense tells one that is the very reason i can't quite see all the hysterics.

    This guy Skripal was playing the "spy game" and was a *double agent*. I'm totally on board--morally--with Russians who spied for the West during the communist era, because they believed the system was evil--it was. But the spy game has its code, like the mafia. You sellout your team, and your team will consider you the worst sort of rat and try and kill you. You know this going in.

    (Yes, in the US, we've let scummy filth like Ames and Walker and Pollard and Hanssen and so forth get away with prison. I'd argue that that whimpy weakness is of a piece with illegal aliens, open borders--a sloppy, weak, feminized unseriousness about defending yourself. In a serious nation they would have been shot--no, drawn and quartered and burned.)

    Anyway, that's the point. Skripal knew the rules, the code, going in. If he felt he was "doing the right thing"--fine. (Though i find that argument a stretch after the fall of the Soviet Union.)

    It's not like Putin--or whoever green lighted this--was out trying to kill an actual Briton. They were killing a fellow Russian spy, who was a traitor to his spy team and knew full well what doing that entailed.

    This is not to say this is ok. What Putin essentially did was renege on what--i assume--was the subtext of the spy swap that freed Skripal. (You get yours back, we get ours back--cases closed.) If Putin is going to do this nonsense, then he really can have no serious complaint about say the CIA running operations in Russia to assassinate their US spies. That's just stupid.

    Putin has also outed himself as an unreliable "partner". You do a spy deal with him and ... he reneges. There's no reason for anyone to then do any more such deals with him. If he was getting a rating on Amazon as a seller he'd be getting a one star review.

    Assuming Skirpal was poisoned by Russian government agents for reasons of state security — rather than Russian organised crime for business reasons — perhaps it was Skirpal himself who reneged on the deal that allowed him to emigrate to the UK? Perhaps he reactivated himself and thereby made himself a pawn on the chessboard once again?

    Perhaps it seems obvious to me on account of the fact that my own journey to nationalism went straight through the heart of multiculturalism. I have always been fascinated by foreigners. (No Whiskey, not in that way.).

    I came around to a sincere conviction that cultural diversity is a treasure, and if I can object to the destruction of someone else's culture, then surely I can just as well object to the destruction of my own. Anyone who says otherwise is claiming that European culture is uniquely evil and unworthy of protection. Our elites do in fact think this, but they don't like to be cornered and forced to say so explicitly.

    I think His Holiness is just an honest sage who won't be so hypothetical as to deny to Europeans the same right to self-assertion and self-preservation he expects for his own people.

    Why should Europe be European? For the same reason life is better than death.

    Why should we not root for any species to keep it's habitat and stay alive? People care about seeing say tigers no go extinct. How much more important that the most successful sub-species of humans survive?

    Rather than me answer "why should Europe be European?", the people against this should be continually asked why they favor the extinction of Europeans?

    Here is the full exchange from the interview published May 31, 2016, by FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung):

    [FAZ:] Das heißt, Sie sind nach all den Jahren immer noch ein Flüchtling. Wie empfinden Sie die gegenwärtige Flüchtlingskrise in Europa?

    [DALAI LAMA:] Wenn wir in das Gesicht jedes einzelnen Flüchtlings schauen, besonders bei den Kindern und Frauen, spüren wir ihr Leid. Ein Mensch, dem es etwas besser geht, hat die Verantwortung, ihnen zu helfen. Andererseits sind es mittlerweile zu viele. Europa, zum Beispiel Deutschland, kann kein arabisches Land werden. Deutschland ist Deutschland. (lacht) Es sind so viele, dass es in der Praxis schwierig ist. Auch moralisch gesehen finde ich, dass diese Flüchtlinge nur vorübergehend aufgenommen werden sollten. Das Ziel sollte sein, dass sie zurückkehren und beim Wiederaufbau ihrer eigenen Länder mithelfen.
     


    [FAZ:] This means that you, after all these years, remain a refugee. How do you perceive the present refugee crisis in Europe?

    [DALAI LAMA:] When we look into the face of any single refugee, especially the children and women, we feel their pain. Someone who is better off responds by helping them. But it is has become too much. Europe, for example Germany, must not turn into an Arab country. Germany is Germany. (Laughs) There are so many that in practice it is difficult. From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily. The goal must be that they return home and help rebuild their own countries.
     

    I read him to mean that it is immoral for Germany to be transformed into an 'Arabic' country because that would mean the loss of Germany, as immoral as the loss of Tibet if it became 'Chinese,' in principle.

    The secondary moral argument is if you allow a brain drain from Syria and these places, they will also never recover. Everyone loses.

    The trouble with Buddhism is its nihilistic core. Mahayana Buddhism is an improvement insofar as it attempts to restore eternal meaning with the oxymoronic bodhisattva vows:

    However innumerable sentient beings are, I vow to save them.

    Add that to the long list of ideas that the Boulder mush heads get wrong.

    The pacifist nature of Buddhists is greatly overblown. Its largely virtue signaling noral superiority that started a long time ago, but in any case, the Dalai understands the idea of a blood and soil. Probably also understands how immigration and invasion are kissing cousins.

    As for nonviolence, just ask the Rohingya of their peaceful ways.

    Even here in the US, I’ve seen refugee communities carry on their longstanding quarrels over territory and culture just like the crips and the bloods, even though they have literally won the lottery and are now able to bask in Iphones and Diversity over here.

    Ive seen the Buddhists and Rohingya here in the US up close. Not a lot of incense and robes, but a lot of hate. And not the ‘hate’ defined by Twitter, but the kind that gets a guys head removed by a kitchen knife.

    Interestiny, the shitlib people that work in the refugee resettlement and ancillary services (public included) racket all seem to have a convenient blind spot to this tendency to prefer one’s own culture, affirm their cultural superiority - even when removed from their land, and retain deep ties to said land even when ‘assimilating’ to the gravy train over here.

    A lot of supposedly smart and educated people that can’t see evidence sitting right in front if them. Not surprisingly the majority are single white college educated women.

    These (and a few soft men) make policy, agitate for legal and political ‘change’, vote like crazy, and facilitate the massive system of handouts.

    Pathological altruism does not fit anymore. There is something much darker at work.

    The first true hatred of Islam that I ever encountered was not in post 9-11 New York City, but among Buddhists in Southern Thailand. Generally underreported, but there has been a low key Islamic insurgency in Southern Thailand for decades. The level of savagery involved, think pyramids of decapitated heads, is not one you easily recover from.

    Is it possible that the Dalai Lama’s occasional White Supremacist comments are given because he expects a particular audience at a particular time/place wants to hear them? A religious zen-master move.

    The May 2016 “They Have to Go Back” interview was with German conservative standard-bearer Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung just at the time conservative pressure had forced Merkel to abandon her wild “there is no limit” (direct quote from Merkel, Sept. 2015) Islamic refugee policy.

    The September 2018 white-supremacist comments from Racist Lama were given, quote, “at a conference in Sweden’s third-largest city of Malmo.” We know that Islamic migrants have demonstrated, rioted, etc., against White Supremacy in recent years there, and that some locals are worried. The white-supremacist Sweden Democrats were the largest party in southern Sweden, around Malmo (see here; Malmo is at the southern tip; Sweden Democrats = yellow).

    From Derb's article:

    Confronted with questions from foreigners, Beijing spokesmen just keep doggedly repeating the lie that: "Tibet is a part of China, and has been since ancient times," until the foreigner gets tired and loses interest. If you try to get your spokesman to justify that statement, he either loses his temper or else descends into nonsense. (As a sample of the latter, one very well-educated Chinese official, speaking flawless English, once explained to me that Chinese and Tibetan are both descended from a common ancestral language. "Which proves we are one people!" Now, it is perfectly true that the two languages have a common ancestor, the hypothetical proto-Sinitic. It is likewise true, however, that English, Irish, French, Greek, Russian, Farsi and Urdu are all descended from a common language, proto-Indo-European … so presumably our division into separate nations is all some kind of ghastly mistake.)
     
    Of course Poland and Russia share a language family too, so your objection actually proves Derb's point.

    I’ve always been a fan of the Dalai Lama. Much to the chagrin of the hippy dippy Buddhists you meet in the West, the Buddhist monks that I have spoken to in Asia have largely been right leaning and traditionalist in outlook.
     
    Tibetan Buddhism is a breathtakingly beautiful spiritual tradition that developed in isolation. They are rightly very proud of it, and their cultural pride takes the edge off the nihilism characteristic of other schools of Buddhism.

    Why did you think that you could go from posting deeply bigoted feminist ignorance, to now somehow being a connoisseur of different types of Buddhism? These are just the usual SJW platitudes. “Snow on a mountain is beautiful. And so pure. I like kittens.” What exactly are YOU doing to embody Tibetan Buddhism? Everything you’ve ever posted on here goes against the wisdom of Buddhism, show-off trash lady.

    The Dalai Lama has compassion for us. How do I know this? Yet another true story:

    A psychologist I was seeing in Boulder was a Buddhist who had been on the welcoming committee in Boston when the Dalai Lama came on his very first visit to the United States. The committee took their honored guest to the aquarium there. (A giant glass cylinder with a spiral ramp around it that you walk down while you look in at the fish, sharks and eels. Sort of a maritime Guggenheim.)

    Whenever a fish swam up to the glass and looked out at him, the Dalai Lama stopped, looked at it and quietly mumbled something. My psychologist asked him what he was saying. The Dalai Lama explained that he was saying a prayer for each creature he met that the creature would come back reincarnated to a better life, not confined inside a glass cylinder with a bunch of other creatures.

    Maybe he is praying now that we will have our own countries back.

    Maybe he is praying now that we will have our own countries back

    Alternatively, he could pray that Muslims and Subsaharans have a better life by inheriting Europe with all its blessings. That they not be confined to the “tragic dirt” of Africa and the Mideast.

    Why doesn’t he do this?

    “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.
     
    The Dalai Lama is talking his book. He wants the Chinese to stay out of Tibet so he's making the case for the current inhabitants of a land getting to keep that land because, well, they're the current inhabitants.

    He's full of BS. Ethnic French have no natural right to the patch of land currently called France. Same for the Germans and English, etc. A land belongs to those are willing and able to defend it.

    What is now France once belonged to the Celts and was called Gaul. I'm sure some other group had it before that and called it something different. And before that some other group probably had it and called it something different than that. And so and so on and so on.

    I hate the current invasion of Europe and the United States (especially since the whites are losing their lands without even fighting), but to act as though it's "wrong" or that because we're the current residents of these lands gives us permanent right to them is ridiculous and shows no knowledge of history.

    The land belongs to those strong enough to defend it whether from foreign soldiers or some stupid new ideology that preaches multi-culturalism. (See Japan for defense against the latter.) That's the way that it's always been and the way it will alway be.

    Perfectly stated. Neither land nor culture is maintained without fighting or showing that you’re willing to fight.

    Not sure why you are positing an equivalence between India and China in this matter. The Dalai Lama chose to escape to India for refuge half a century ago and continues to reside here (I’m in India.) No one’s holding him here; he was free to go to any other country that would have him, but he chose India. The Buddhist Tibetan country of Bhutan (sandwiched between India and China) also chooses to have diplomatic relations solely with India, and pretty much outsources its foreign policy to India.

    There’s ample evidence to counter your assumption of Machiavellian strategizing. India has never controlled, or attempted to control any part of Tibet; the one exception being the invasion of Ladakh (a small portion of Western Tibet) in the 19th century, but then invasions had been launched from Ladakh into Kashmir in the past, so this was more like payback. There’s no desire in India for conquests north of the Himalayas. China, on the other hand, considers Tibet part of its historic empire, as it indeed has been for certain periods.

    India is mistrustful of China because China invaded India in 1962 and has since then persistently shored up the Pakistan military, whose raison d’etre is enmity with India. China is mistrustful of India because, well, they are commies; it’s in their nature to be mistrustful.

    Bhutan didn't choose to have diplomatic relations solely with India. It was Nehru who went to Bhutan to seek relationship shortly after India was created in 1948. And the reason Bhutan solely have relationship (aside a few other small countries such as Thailand) with India is that India bullied Bhutan into submission with the threat of annexation a la Sikkim if Bhutan didn't comply. And so today Bhutan does not have diplomatic relation with any of the permanent five members of the United Nation security council, namely the US, Great Britain, France, Russia and even China, Bhutan's northern neighbors.

    Bhutanese, just like India's other neighbor's people, are extremely resentful of India's bullying behavior toward's Bhutan. Here are two Bhutanese on India in their own words.

    Quite the opposite. It is India that invaded China in 1962, having already invaded and annexed South Tibet in 1951. South Tibet was renamed to Arunachal Pradesh and made a state by India in 1987.

    Why did you think that you could go from posting deeply bigoted feminist ignorance, to now somehow being a connoisseur of different types of Buddhism? These are just the usual SJW platitudes. "Snow on a mountain is beautiful. And so pure. I like kittens." What exactly are YOU doing to embody Tibetan Buddhism? Everything you've ever posted on here goes against the wisdom of Buddhism, show-off trash lady.

    Why did you think that you could go from posting deeply bigoted feminist ignorance,

    Such as…

    Snow on a mountain is beautiful. And so pure. I like kittens.

    Well, yes, the idea has occurred to me that spectacular mountains or other landforms might have a role to play in shaping a people’s spiritual life.

    Padmasambhava AKA Guru Rinpoche would beg to differ:

    “The basis for realizing enlightenment is a human body. Male or female–there is no great difference. But if she develops the mind bent on enlightenment, to be a woman is better.”

    USSR document dumps of Wehrmacht files after 1989 made it near impossible for anyone in the mainstream to rehabilitate the idea that German soldiers were "patriots brainwashed by the dictatorship". Similar document dumps happened in Spain, Portugal and South Africa after the authoritarian regimes were removed.

    By contrast, much of the US and UK documents have never been dumped, and the secruity state goes to outrageous lengths to prevent their declassification. Imagine the aftershock of finding out even now that "The USS Maine was an inside job", multiplied over a thousandfold.

    What is the Dalai Lama's motivation and justification for this viewpoint?

    Not meant as being funny (= no satire!): He’s just a down to earth guy. If you compare him to some high-speed western intellectuals (no, I don’t name one now), you might want to start to meditate right away…or to pray…

    When in Europe, the Dalai Lama discourages (and disillusions, hopefully!) Westerners regularly who ask him about Buddhism and eastern wisdom and the like.

    The standard response of his holiness to such questions: You’re much better off with your religion, especially because you can understand it much better.

    I love him for his hipness, really! – And I mean that literally and I think the reference to the old hippie-sayings and quotes like Love the one you’re with! - or Be Here Now! is obvious.

    From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily,” the Dalai Lama said.
     
    What's the moral argument for that?

    Here is the full exchange from the interview published May 31, 2016, by FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung):

    [FAZ:] Das heißt, Sie sind nach all den Jahren immer noch ein Flüchtling. Wie empfinden Sie die gegenwärtige Flüchtlingskrise in Europa?

    [DALAI LAMA:] Wenn wir in das Gesicht jedes einzelnen Flüchtlings schauen, besonders bei den Kindern und Frauen, spüren wir ihr Leid. Ein Mensch, dem es etwas besser geht, hat die Verantwortung, ihnen zu helfen. Andererseits sind es mittlerweile zu viele. Europa, zum Beispiel Deutschland, kann kein arabisches Land werden. Deutschland ist Deutschland. (lacht) Es sind so viele, dass es in der Praxis schwierig ist. Auch moralisch gesehen finde ich, dass diese Flüchtlinge nur vorübergehend aufgenommen werden sollten. Das Ziel sollte sein, dass sie zurückkehren und beim Wiederaufbau ihrer eigenen Länder mithelfen.

    [FAZ:] This means that you, after all these years, remain a refugee. How do you perceive the present refugee crisis in Europe?

    [DALAI LAMA:] When we look into the face of any single refugee, especially the children and women, we feel their pain. Someone who is better off responds by helping them. But it is has become too much. Europe, for example Germany, must not turn into an Arab country. Germany is Germany. (Laughs) There are so many that in practice it is difficult. From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily. The goal must be that they return home and help rebuild their own countries.

    I read him to mean that it is immoral for Germany to be transformed into an ‘Arabic’ country because that would mean the loss of Germany, as immoral as the loss of Tibet if it became ‘Chinese,’ in principle.

    The secondary moral argument is if you allow a brain drain from Syria and these places, they will also never recover. Everyone loses.

    How do you deduce that from what he said?

    His argument was explicitly moral—namely,

    A. A nation belongs to the ethnic group that built it, and

    B. While refugees must be helped, they must also not fail to return (or be returned) to their home countries, lest those countries and cultures fall into disrepair.

    A. precludes your speculative assertion.

    The r/Hapas reddit hated the movie for this reason.

    Digression:

    r/Hapas is interesting to follow as there is substantial overlap with I-Steve topics, but a commentariat that is mainly 'Hapa' male (usually meaning half "typical WhiteAmerican" [i.e., mainly NW European], half Northeast Asian; but the category is flexible).

    The big distinction among themselves they make is neither amount of Asian blood vs. European blood, nor national/regional/subracial elements of either (as a strict racialist might), but rather whether the person is a product of a "WMAF" or "AMWF" pairing (White Male - Asian Female or Asian Male - White Female), or a lot more rarely still, HMAF (Hapa Male - Asian Female). There is a lot of serious anger and dysfunction on that reddit over the main consensus, which is that WMAF pairings are bad. "WMAF" is always unhealthy, they say, for [reasons], and a major threat to incipient Hapa racial identity. That is what they spent their time on regarding Crazy Rich Asians and another movie or book that came out at the same time (To All the Boys I've Loved Before? or similar0, in which the Korean-American author said she would never date an Asian man because they remind her "of her cousins." They excoriated her.

    The defining feature of r/Hapas (if fact it is almost all Male Hapas) is anger over this and opposition to it. Some r/Hapa-ers are also relatively politically anti-White, but their main anger against White (men) is psycho-sexual. And who can blame them. I cannot say they are wrong; I would say they only see a small piece of the picture, they are one among the blindolfed men grasping at the elephant and misidentifying it.

    Their reaction to anti-White racist New York Timers'er Sarah Jeong (full Korean) also mainly focused on her White boyfriend(s).

    I don't know if half-Asian, half-White 'Hapa' will develop into a coherent racial category; it could. The alternative, as some of the more dire r/Hapa'ites have it, is the Asian population in the USA completely fading into the White population via WMAF pairings, the Hapa daughters of which also go for WMHF [White Male - Hapa Female], and the concurrent lack of success for Hapa men and Asian men.

    OT Leaders are looking to evacuate whole towns after twenty near-simultaneous gas explosions around Boston, but it is probably related to a labor dispute with gas company “National Grid.”
    NG and its employees have been separately accused of sabotage in the past.

    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/09/11/grid-s11.html

    National Grid’s lockout of some 1,200 gas workers belonging to United Steelworkers (USW) locals 12012 and 12003 is now in its third month. The workers have suffered through the summer with no pay, health insurance that is either nonexistent, inadequate or exorbitantly expensive, and isolation from other sections of workers, which has been enforced by the USW.

    The tactics of the two locals have consisted of legal maneuvering, scattered pickets, and appeals to corporate-controlled politicians. The only significant protests so far have been a July 18 rally in Boston, which was joined by other union workers and had about 1,000 attendees, and the locked-out workers’ presence at the Boston Labor Day rally.

    The safety violations committed by scabs have included excavating within 200 feet of a high-pressure regulator pit with no inspector present, making emergency valves inaccessible by filling around them with sand, and creating a “backdoor” entrance to its Malden facility so that contractors can avoid picketers. This “backdoor” results in pickup trucks driving over a 700-pound pressurized gas line that is protected only by a steel plate.

    To quote commenter AnotherDad

    ... it’s not too hard to figure out where some of this comes from. Beyond just being a smart and decent guy, the Dalai Lama had his own nation hijacked by the Chicoms to the point he had to flee to India, followed by the Chinese trying to seal the steal by demographically inundating Tibet with Han colonists. So he’s a good bit more aware of what a “nation” means, and sensitive to what losing your nation feels like. (Something a lot of white people are going to be feeling in the years ahead.)

    The major alternative media criticism of her was that she was the West’s puppet (she is the daughter of the Western-leashed leader from before the nationalist generals took over). It is rich hearing outlets that had been worshipping her a year and a half ago now trying to go Noriega/Saddam on her. The funniest thing is that she probably wants to be a Western puppet, but at the end of the day, nobody but a starry-eyed Quangoteer can tolerate obvious Muslim violence.

    Perhaps it seems obvious to me on account of the fact that my own journey to nationalism went straight through the heart of multiculturalism. I have always been fascinated by foreigners. (No Whiskey, not in that way.).

    I came around to a sincere conviction that cultural diversity is a treasure, and if I can object to the destruction of someone else’s culture, then surely I can just as well object to the destruction of my own. Anyone who says otherwise is claiming that European culture is uniquely evil and unworthy of protection. Our elites do in fact think this, but they don’t like to be cornered and forced to say so explicitly.

    I think His Holiness is just an honest sage who won’t be so hypothetical as to deny to Europeans the same right to self-assertion and self-preservation he expects for his own people.

    I agree. In the end, it's the difference that matters. Everywhere. When blessed with deep insight, simplicity shines. See the Dalai-Lama quote in the FAZ interview quoted above:

    "Europe, or Germany for example, must not turn into an Arab country. Germany is Germany. (Laughs)"

    Btw. it's practically the same thought as the one, Steve brings up in his diversity post today. He just gave his version a slightly (almost Buddhist, so tender, hehe) ironic drive.
    , @Rosie
    Further reflections:

    Perhaps the most charming thing about Tibet is that Buddhist piety pervades every aspect of daily life in Tibet. One might think this would be stifling, but in fact I think there is a tendency for secure religions to develop into versatile, accommodating, national traditions. Tibetan Buddhism is esoteric mysticism and devotional folk religion all at the same time.

    The fact is that once-a-week religion, considered a "private matter," is simply not very enriching or edifying. Yet, once-a-week, private religion is all that is feasible in a diverse society. At the very least, any attempt to bring religion into daily public life is controversial and met with resistance.

    The point being: As a Buddhist, the Dalai Lama would be expected to take a very practical approach to religion. That is, it is only worthwhile insofar as it enhances the well-being of its adherents. Accordingly, he would see the introduction of a conflicting, and hostile religion into European society as particularly damaging to European spiritual life.

Or, in an artistic-license move, that the then-Dalai Lama, to be portrayed as pro-Nazi, personally encouraged the shipping of Jews to concentration camps. When a heroic Assistant Lama dares ask why the Tibetans should to encourage the rounding up of Jews in Europe, Nazi Lama icily rebukes him: “Europe belongs to the Europeans!”

    As it happens, the Dalai Lama is connected to the swastika and the Germanic people by more than Buddhism.

    An Austrian WWII POW escapee from detention in British India, the Alpinist Heinrich Harrer, was the young Dalai Lama's tutor in English, Geography and Science. Harrer was a low-level SS sergeant, albeit cleared of any crimes after the war. Harrer's story was made into a movie, Seven Years in Tibet, starring Brad Pitt.

    The Dalai Lama's statement raises the question: What are Europeans doing in North America?

    It's kind of bizarre that a bunch of white nationalists in America are taking the Dalai Lama as some sort of ally because of this statement, when by this logic their presence in North America is more illegitimate than that of the Dalai Lama's primary issue, the Chinese presence in Tibet.

    The Dalai Lama probably thinks that America belongs to the Indians or holds some sort of One World/New Age style view that America belongs to Everybody.

    The average Africentrist will argue that Europeans are “inbred Neaderthals” entitled to no more than a “few caves in the Caucasus Mountains”. The Dalai Lama looks better in comparison, and many of the complaints about immigration would dissipate if numbers were reduced, or even better paused, and their voting patterns mirrored whites.

    It's sort of an East Asian Poland, stuck between two nations somewhat fearful, or at best mistrustful, of each other. Policy advisers in Peking tell their boss: "If we don't control Tibet, India will take it!" And I suppose people in New Delhi say the converse thing.

    “Policy advisers in Peking tell their boss: “If we don’t control Tibet, India will take it!” And I suppose people in New Delhi say the converse thing.”

    Tibet is of course part of China longer than the United States is a country. Only pseudo historians or Indians say otherwise. But India did take it. In 1951, four years after the Raj has already gone, India invaded and annexed South Tibet, including historic Tawang. Tawang is the birthplace of the Sixth Dalai Lama and home to a four hundred years old Tibetan monastery. In 1962, having already annexed South Tibet, India pushed further north in an attempt take more of Tibet, but was defeated in a short border war with China.

    In case people couldn’t locate South Tibet, the place was renamed to the so called ‘Arunachal Pradesh’ by India in 1987 and made it a state. In 2009 South Tibet/Arunachal Pradesh officially became an United Nation recognized disputed territory, along with India’s other, Kashmir.

    Add that to the long list of ideas that the Boulder mush heads get wrong.

    The pacifist nature of Buddhists is greatly overblown. Its largely virtue signaling noral superiority that started a long time ago, but in any case, the Dalai understands the idea of a blood and soil. Probably also understands how immigration and invasion are kissing cousins.

    As for nonviolence, just ask the Rohingya of their peaceful ways.

    Even here in the US, I’ve seen refugee communities carry on their longstanding quarrels over territory and culture just like the crips and the bloods, even though they have literally won the lottery and are now able to bask in Iphones and Diversity over here.

    Ive seen the Buddhists and Rohingya here in the US up close. Not a lot of incense and robes, but a lot of hate. And not the ‘hate’ defined by Twitter, but the kind that gets a guys head removed by a kitchen knife.

    Interestiny, the shitlib people that work in the refugee resettlement and ancillary services (public included) racket all seem to have a convenient blind spot to this tendency to prefer one’s own culture, affirm their cultural superiority - even when removed from their land, and retain deep ties to said land even when ‘assimilating’ to the gravy train over here.

    A lot of supposedly smart and educated people that can’t see evidence sitting right in front if them. Not surprisingly the majority are single white college educated women.

    These (and a few soft men) make policy, agitate for legal and political ‘change’, vote like crazy, and facilitate the massive system of handouts.

    Pathological altruism does not fit anymore. There is something much darker at work.

    This is fun. But let's not kid ourselves. The Dalai Lama is entirely political and focused on China. He has to say every country belongs to its native population. Otherwise, he can't oppose Chinese replacement of Tibetans. If it weren't for the China-Tibet situation, he'd be a flaming liberal.

    “If it weren’t for the China-Tibet situation, he’d be a flaming liberal.”

    Don’t be naïve. The DL is never a liberal. Quite the opposite he is rather right wing. The DL and US Senator Jesse Helms were close. No liberal will cozy up with Jesse Helms, Apartheid South Africa’s biggest supporter.

    How is that analogous? Indians are a different race. Chinese and Tibetans are part of the same race and language family: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-Tibetan

    From Derb’s article:

    Confronted with questions from foreigners, Beijing spokesmen just keep doggedly repeating the lie that: “Tibet is a part of China, and has been since ancient times,” until the foreigner gets tired and loses interest. If you try to get your spokesman to justify that statement, he either loses his temper or else descends into nonsense. (As a sample of the latter, one very well-educated Chinese official, speaking flawless English, once explained to me that Chinese and Tibetan are both descended from a common ancestral language. “Which proves we are one people!” Now, it is perfectly true that the two languages have a common ancestor, the hypothetical proto-Sinitic. It is likewise true, however, that English, Irish, French, Greek, Russian, Farsi and Urdu are all descended from a common language, proto-Indo-European … so presumably our division into separate nations is all some kind of ghastly mistake.)

    Of course Poland and Russia share a language family too, so your objection actually proves Derb’s point.

    The big distinction among themselves they make is neither amount of Asian blood vs. European blood, nor national/regional/subracial elements of either (as a strict racialist might), but rather whether the person is a product of a “WMAF” or “AMWF” pairing (White Male – Asian Female or Asian Male – White Female), or a lot more rarely still, HMAF (Hapa Male – Asian Female). There is a lot of serious anger and dysfunction on that reddit over the main consensus, which is that WMAF pairings are bad. “WMAF” is always unhealthy, they say, for [reasons], and a major threat to incipient Hapa racial identity. That is what they spent their time on regarding Crazy Rich Asians and another movie or book that came out at the same time (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before? or similar0, in which the Korean-American author said she would never date an Asian man because they remind her “of her cousins.” They excoriated her.

    The defining feature of r/Hapas (if fact it is almost all Male Hapas) is anger over this and opposition to it. Some r/Hapa-ers are also relatively politically anti-White, but their main anger against White (men) is psycho-sexual. And who can blame them. I cannot say they are wrong; I would say they only see a small piece of the picture, they are one among the blindolfed men grasping at the elephant and misidentifying it.

    Their reaction to anti-White racist New York Timers‘er Sarah Jeong (full Korean) also mainly focused on her White boyfriend(s).

    I don’t know if half-Asian, half-White ‘Hapa’ will develop into a coherent racial category; it could. The alternative, as some of the more dire r/Hapa’ites have it, is the Asian population in the USA completely fading into the White population via WMAF pairings, the Hapa daughters of which also go for WMHF [White Male - Hapa Female], and the concurrent lack of success for Hapa men and Asian men.

    Their reaction to anti-White racist New York Timers'er Sarah Jeong (full Korean) also mainly focused on her White boyfriend(s).

    I don't know if half-Asian, half-White 'Hapa' will develop into a coherent racial category; it could. The alternative, as some of the more dire r/Hapa'ites have it, is the Asian population in the USA completely fading into the White population via WMAF pairings, the Hapa daughters of which also go for WMHF [White Male - Hapa Female], and the concurrent lack of success for Hapa men and Asian men.

    Extraversion and conformity are far bigger necessities than correct ethnic composition, but that angle doesn’t stir quite as much rancor.

    “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.
     
    The Dalai Lama is talking his book. He wants the Chinese to stay out of Tibet so he's making the case for the current inhabitants of a land getting to keep that land because, well, they're the current inhabitants.

    He's full of BS. Ethnic French have no natural right to the patch of land currently called France. Same for the Germans and English, etc. A land belongs to those are willing and able to defend it.

    What is now France once belonged to the Celts and was called Gaul. I'm sure some other group had it before that and called it something different. And before that some other group probably had it and called it something different than that. And so and so on and so on.

    I hate the current invasion of Europe and the United States (especially since the whites are losing their lands without even fighting), but to act as though it's "wrong" or that because we're the current residents of these lands gives us permanent right to them is ridiculous and shows no knowledge of history.

    The land belongs to those strong enough to defend it whether from foreign soldiers or some stupid new ideology that preaches multi-culturalism. (See Japan for defense against the latter.) That's the way that it's always been and the way it will alway be.

    Agreed.

    But I still argue that any stretch of land doesn't "belong" to anyone, at least not in a historical sense. (I'd like my own litter patch of land to stay in my hands. :)) The lands of the world has passed repeatedly from tribe to tribe over the millenia. To say that it should all stop today is silly and unrealistic.

    Where is your sympathy for the Gauls? Where is your sympathy for the Beaker people of Britain? Where is your sympathy for the Native Americans (who continually pushed out other native tribes, btw)?

    Your use of the word "wrong" is childish. By your moral code, you and I shouldn't be in North America. By your moral code, your ancestors are genocidal killers. By your moral code, any movement of people into any territory occupied by the original human inhabitants since humans first set foot on this planet is wrong?

    Under what theory, then, is any modern tribe of humans not morally wrong?

    Under your theory, why should any tribe defend - or expand - it's territory? What right do Whites have to Canada or the United States? What right do the Franks have to their patch of land when it was occupied by many other groups before them throughout history?

    I think that my logic is clear, if not how I'd like the world to be. Your logic is not. So before you moralize about my beliefs (which are far more consistent with history), the least that you can do is explain your theory of how the world works and how your theory is more consistent with history.

    The Dalai Lama's statement raises the question: What are Europeans doing in North America?

    It's kind of bizarre that a bunch of white nationalists in America are taking the Dalai Lama as some sort of ally because of this statement, when by this logic their presence in North America is more illegitimate than that of the Dalai Lama's primary issue, the Chinese presence in Tibet.

    The Dalai Lama probably thinks that America belongs to the Indians or holds some sort of One World/New Age style view that America belongs to Everybody.

    The Dalai Lama probably thinks that America belongs to the Indians or holds some sort of One World/New Age style view that America belongs to Everybody.

    How do you deduce that from what he said?

    His argument was explicitly moral—namely,

    A. A nation belongs to the ethnic group that built it, and

    B. While refugees must be helped, they must also not fail to return (or be returned) to their home countries, lest those countries and cultures fall into disrepair.

    A. precludes your speculative assertion.

And the European settlers were right, just various Indian tribes were right to not give a shit that some other Indian tribe occupied some patch of land before them.

    Not sure why you are positing an equivalence between India and China in this matter. The Dalai Lama chose to escape to India for refuge half a century ago and continues to reside here (I'm in India.) No one's holding him here; he was free to go to any other country that would have him, but he chose India. The Buddhist Tibetan country of Bhutan (sandwiched between India and China) also chooses to have diplomatic relations solely with India, and pretty much outsources its foreign policy to India.

    There's ample evidence to counter your assumption of Machiavellian strategizing. India has never controlled, or attempted to control any part of Tibet; the one exception being the invasion of Ladakh (a small portion of Western Tibet) in the 19th century, but then invasions had been launched from Ladakh into Kashmir in the past, so this was more like payback. There's no desire in India for conquests north of the Himalayas. China, on the other hand, considers Tibet part of its historic empire, as it indeed has been for certain periods.

    India is mistrustful of China because China invaded India in 1962 and has since then persistently shored up the Pakistan military, whose raison d'etre is enmity with India. China is mistrustful of India because, well, they are commies; it's in their nature to be mistrustful.

    “The Buddhist Tibetan country of Bhutan (sandwiched between India and China) also chooses to have diplomatic relations solely with India, and pretty much outsources its foreign policy to India. ”

    Bhutan didn’t choose to have diplomatic relations solely with India. It was Nehru who went to Bhutan to seek relationship shortly after India was created in 1948. And the reason Bhutan solely have relationship (aside a few other small countries such as Thailand) with India is that India bullied Bhutan into submission with the threat of annexation a la Sikkim if Bhutan didn’t comply. And so today Bhutan does not have diplomatic relation with any of the permanent five members of the United Nation security council, namely the US, Great Britain, France, Russia and even China, Bhutan’s northern neighbors.

    Bhutanese, just like India’s other neighbor’s people, are extremely resentful of India’s bullying behavior toward’s Bhutan. Here are two Bhutanese on India in their own words.

    I might add that Bhutan has not yet been annexed by India, but it is in a state of semi-occupation by India. The small country has a population of less than eight hundred thousand people but is infested with over ten thousand Indian para military personnel of all kinds. This is the reason the Bhutanese government didn't speak up much because India is virtually point a gun at Bhutan's head.

    “India is mistrustful of China because China invaded India in 1962 …”

    Quite the opposite. It is India that invaded China in 1962, having already invaded and annexed South Tibet in 1951. South Tibet was renamed to Arunachal Pradesh and made a state by India in 1987.

    Dalai Lama: "Europe Belongs to the Europeans"
     
    Expect to start seeing articles and CNN pieces comparing him to Hitler. Here's a carving from the home of the 11th Dalai Lama. Coincidence? I think not (the Washington Post will say.)

    https://www.theadventure.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/DSCN2682.jpg

    As it happens, the Dalai Lama is connected to the swastika and the Germanic people by more than Buddhism.

    An Austrian WWII POW escapee from detention in British India, the Alpinist Heinrich Harrer, was the young Dalai Lama’s tutor in English, Geography and Science. Harrer was a low-level SS sergeant, albeit cleared of any crimes after the war. Harrer’s story was made into a movie, Seven Years in Tibet, starring Brad Pitt.

And so today Bhutan does not have diplomatic relation with any of the permanent five members of the United Nation security council, namely the US, Great Britain, France, Russia and even China, Bhutan's northern neighbors.

    Bhutanese, just like India's other neighbor's people, are extremely resentful of India's bullying behavior toward's Bhutan. Here are two Bhutanese on India in their own words.

    I might add that Bhutan has not yet been annexed by India, but it is in a state of semi-occupation by India. The small country has a population of less than eight hundred thousand people but is infested with over ten thousand Indian para military personnel of all kinds. This is the reason the Bhutanese government didn’t speak up much because India is virtually point a gun at Bhutan’s head.

    “I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that “they ultimately should rebuild their own country”.
     
    The Dalai Lama is talking his book. He wants the Chinese to stay out of Tibet so he's making the case for the current inhabitants of a land getting to keep that land because, well, they're the current inhabitants.

    He's full of BS. Ethnic French have no natural right to the patch of land currently called France. Same for the Germans and English, etc. A land belongs to those are willing and able to defend it.

    What is now France once belonged to the Celts and was called Gaul. I'm sure some other group had it before that and called it something different. And before that some other group probably had it and called it something different than that. And so and so on and so on.

    I hate the current invasion of Europe and the United States (especially since the whites are losing their lands without even fighting), but to act as though it's "wrong" or that because we're the current residents of these lands gives us permanent right to them is ridiculous and shows no knowledge of history.

    The land belongs to those strong enough to defend it whether from foreign soldiers or some stupid new ideology that preaches multi-culturalism. (See Japan for defense against the latter.) That's the way that it's always been and the way it will alway be.

    You sure don’t know anything about European history do you? France is a German name for the various tribes that invaded starting 1,700 years ago.

    But the Celts never left. If you ever go to France tour the rural areas. There are Celtic not French festivals all over.

    France is still a Gallic Celtic nation despite the German name and Latin language.

    The British government got DNA from the 40,000 year old cheddar man body found in Cheddar Gorge. They compared his DNA with DNA of thousands of British people. Turns out that the majority of the British people are not Anglo Saxon’s Norman’s Romans or even ancient Celts.

    Btw, has anyone checked whether that Celtic heritage comes from the Celtic maternal or paternal line? My suspicion is that Celtic men added a lot less to modern Frenchman than Celtic women. Frankish father, Celtic mother.

    But enough with current ancient history, let's look at future ancient history. Births in France are around 20% Middle Eastern and North African Muslim and ~5% African.

    My view on Russia policy is they should have a completely free hand in Syria and the ex-USSR, except the Baltics. We should also find a way to apologize for our misdeeds in bombing Serbia, wrong on its merits and a stupid provocation against Russia.

    The Dalai Lama probably thinks that America belongs to the Indians or holds some sort of One World/New Age style view that America belongs to Everybody.
     
    How do you deduce that from what he said?

    His argument was explicitly moral—namely,

    A. A nation belongs to the ethnic group that built it, and

    B. While refugees must be helped, they must also not fail to return (or be returned) to their home countries, lest those countries and cultures fall into disrepair.

    A. precludes your speculative assertion.

    I don’t think he would agree to that. That is basically the Chinese Communist Party’s argument: China says 60 years of development saved Tibet from feudalism https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-tibet/china-says-60-years-of-development-saved-tibet-from-feudalism-idUSTRE74I31T20110519

    Under what theory, then, do you consider the Holocaust or any other ethnic slaughter or genocide to be wrong?

    Where is your sympathy for the Gauls? Where is your sympathy for the Beaker people of Britain? Where is your sympathy for the Native Americans (who continually pushed out other native tribes, btw)?

    Your use of the word “wrong” is childish. By your moral code, you and I shouldn’t be in North America. By your moral code, your ancestors are genocidal killers. By your moral code, any movement of people into any territory occupied by the original human inhabitants since humans first set foot on this planet is wrong?

    Under what theory, then, is any modern tribe of humans not morally wrong?

    Under your theory, why should any tribe defend – or expand – it’s territory? What right do Whites have to Canada or the United States? What right do the Franks have to their patch of land when it was occupied by many other groups before them throughout history?

    I think that my logic is clear, if not how I’d like the world to be. Your logic is not. So before you moralize about my beliefs (which are far more consistent with history), the least that you can do is explain your theory of how the world works and how your theory is more consistent with history.

    "Policy advisers in Peking tell their boss: “If we don’t control Tibet, India will take it!” And I suppose people in New Delhi say the converse thing."

    Tibet is of course part of China longer than the United States is a country. Only pseudo historians or Indians say otherwise. But India did take it. In 1951, four years after the Raj has already gone, India invaded and annexed South Tibet, including historic Tawang. Tawang is the birthplace of the Sixth Dalai Lama and home to a four hundred years old Tibetan monastery. In 1962, having already annexed South Tibet, India pushed further north in an attempt take more of Tibet, but was defeated in a short border war with China.

    In case people couldn't locate South Tibet, the place was renamed to the so called 'Arunachal Pradesh' by India in 1987 and made it a state. In 2009 South Tibet/Arunachal Pradesh officially became an United Nation recognized disputed territory, along with India's other, Kashmir.

    The r/Hapas reddit hated the movie for this reason.

    Digression:

    r/Hapas is interesting to follow as there is substantial overlap with I-Steve topics, but a commentariat that is mainly 'Hapa' male (usually meaning half "typical WhiteAmerican" [i.e., mainly NW European], half Northeast Asian; but the category is flexible).

    The big distinction among themselves they make is neither amount of Asian blood vs. European blood, nor national/regional/subracial elements of either (as a strict racialist might), but rather whether the person is a product of a "WMAF" or "AMWF" pairing (White Male - Asian Female or Asian Male - White Female), or a lot more rarely still, HMAF (Hapa Male - Asian Female). There is a lot of serious anger and dysfunction on that reddit over the main consensus, which is that WMAF pairings are bad. "WMAF" is always unhealthy, they say, for [reasons], and a major threat to incipient Hapa racial identity. That is what they spent their time on regarding Crazy Rich Asians and another movie or book that came out at the same time (To All the Boys I've Loved Before? or similar0, in which the Korean-American author said she would never date an Asian man because they remind her "of her cousins." They excoriated her.

    The defining feature of r/Hapas (if fact it is almost all Male Hapas) is anger over this and opposition to it. Some r/Hapa-ers are also relatively politically anti-White, but their main anger against White (men) is psycho-sexual. And who can blame them. I cannot say they are wrong; I would say they only see a small piece of the picture, they are one among the blindolfed men grasping at the elephant and misidentifying it.

    Their reaction to anti-White racist New York Timers'er Sarah Jeong (full Korean) also mainly focused on her White boyfriend(s).

    I don't know if half-Asian, half-White 'Hapa' will develop into a coherent racial category; it could. The alternative, as some of the more dire r/Hapa'ites have it, is the Asian population in the USA completely fading into the White population via WMAF pairings, the Hapa daughters of which also go for WMHF [White Male - Hapa Female], and the concurrent lack of success for Hapa men and Asian men.

    but their main anger against White (men) is psycho-sexual. And who can blame them. I cannot say they are wrong; I would say they only see a small piece of the picture, they are one among the blindolfed men grasping at the elephant and misidentifying it.

    This is a complicated topic. Suffice it to say that it is a cultural tragedy all around, not just one affecting one group.

    Most of these White-Western men who are with East Asian women are reacting to what Feminism (and, perhaps, high fructose corn syrup in the USA at least) has wrought among their own, that is, among White-Western women. Rather than potential wives, many White men from politically 'blue' areas tend to see angry-feminist, pointlessly-ambitious career-women who often out-earn young White men of their age-cohorts plus a few years. Too many White women (such White men perceive) are, if not 'ruined,' then 'inaccessible' or at very least 'difficult,' and therefore relationships seem impossible. This is an increasingly significant cultural tragedy.

    There is no vast conspiracy of White males to 'steal' East Asian women, destroy East Asian manhood, and commit a soft generational genocide against Asians in White countries (as some on r/Hapas believe; though the majority of r/Hapas posters blame Asian women for the problem pretty directly, and sometimes even exclusively).

    It's hard to imagine now, but this problem may well pass, in time (though not any time soon), because its origins are (I believe) political and a product of our times, with three pillars:

    WhiteFeminism+Multiculturalism+PerceivedWhitePrestige (by Asian women);

    ...take away any of those and the system falls apart, and "WMAF" racial mixing will recede to the relatively minimal levels it was in the past. How many Hapas will be born between now and when this Trinity dissolves, I cannot say.

    Your argument is missing some steps. Why does he care about Europe? What is his argument for why Europe should be “European”?
     
    Perhaps it seems obvious to me on account of the fact that my own journey to nationalism went straight through the heart of multiculturalism. I have always been fascinated by foreigners. (No Whiskey, not in that way.).

    I came around to a sincere conviction that cultural diversity is a treasure, and if I can object to the destruction of someone else's culture, then surely I can just as well object to the destruction of my own. Anyone who says otherwise is claiming that European culture is uniquely evil and unworthy of protection. Our elites do in fact think this, but they don't like to be cornered and forced to say so explicitly.

    I think His Holiness is just an honest sage who won't be so hypothetical as to deny to Europeans the same right to self-assertion and self-preservation he expects for his own people.

    I agree. In the end, it’s the difference that matters. Everywhere. When blessed with deep insight, simplicity shines. See the Dalai-Lama quote in the FAZ interview quoted above:

    “Europe, or Germany for example, must not turn into an Arab country. Germany is Germany. (Laughs)”

    Btw. it’s practically the same thought as the one, Steve brings up in his diversity post today. He just gave his version a slightly (almost Buddhist, so tender, hehe) ironic drive.

    Asa group we are total losers. As individuals we can take care of ourselves. Just go underground. Check black on the job / college application avoid and evade taxes. Do what the immigrants do, lie cheat and steal.

    The White business men, educators, media politicians and even clergy critters want us gone. The damage was done when your grandparents were young adults.

    Right wing Whites care only about patriotism their ignorant opinions about the constitution abortion of black and Hispanic babies and the guns which they will never use.

    Go your own way. No other Whites will or can help you.

    Where is your sympathy for the Gauls? Where is your sympathy for the Beaker people of Britain? Where is your sympathy for the Native Americans (who continually pushed out other native tribes, btw)?

    Your use of the word "wrong" is childish. By your moral code, you and I shouldn't be in North America. By your moral code, your ancestors are genocidal killers. By your moral code, any movement of people into any territory occupied by the original human inhabitants since humans first set foot on this planet is wrong?

    Under what theory, then, is any modern tribe of humans not morally wrong?

    Under your theory, why should any tribe defend - or expand - it's territory? What right do Whites have to Canada or the United States? What right do the Franks have to their patch of land when it was occupied by many other groups before them throughout history?

    I think that my logic is clear, if not how I'd like the world to be. Your logic is not. So before you moralize about my beliefs (which are far more consistent with history), the least that you can do is explain your theory of how the world works and how your theory is more consistent with history.

    I think that my logic is clear, if not how I’d like the world to be.

    What is your theory then? Please spell it out?

    It's not a theory. It's history. From a historic standpoint, successful tribes have grown and entered new territory. The record shows that conquering tribes experience much fewer problems down the road when they eliminate the current population, either by the sword or expelling them, than when they allow the conquered tribe to stick around.

    Granted, sometimes the two peoples are able to blend into one - the Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Britons come to mind - but that process takes a very, very long time and you usually have a fair amount of trouble in between.

    But most of the time, conquering tribes should eliminate the conquered tribe so that their descendants don't have to fight the same battles again. Nothing personal, just business.

    History shows over and over that different tribes don't mix well in the same land. Lasting peace is usually achieved by separating peoples into their own homelands if possible. It's better for all. The process of achieving that separation can be gruesome indeed, but so is surgery; however, if the surgery allows the patient to be healthy for many decades to come, it's worth it.

    This isn't my theory. It's history. And whether I think that it's good or bad is a bit like asking me if I think the sun rising in the East and setting in the West is good or bad. It just is. But just to be nice, I'll say, No, I don't want to put different groups to sword, nor would I approve of it by others. That said, nature and history don't care what I think. Mix different tribes together in the same territory and, historically speaking, you have brutal civil wars and massacres.

    Am I predicting that for the U.S. and Europe? How do I know the future. I just know history, and history says that the odds are that it will be ugly.

    Btw, has anyone checked whether that Celtic heritage comes from the Celtic maternal or paternal line? My suspicion is that Celtic men added a lot less to modern Frenchman than Celtic women. Frankish father, Celtic mother.

    But enough with current ancient history, let's look at future ancient history. Births in France are around 20% Middle Eastern and North African Muslim and ~5% African.

    How Celtic are they?

    The British government got DNA from the 40,000 year old cheddar man body found in Cheddar Gorge. They compared his DNA with DNA of thousands of British people. Turns out that the majority of the British people are not Anglo Saxon’s Norman’s Romans or even ancient Celts.
    The majority are closer related to 40,000 Year old Cheddar man than to Anglo saxons Norman’s Celts or Romans

     

    Did the British government test the 10% or so kids born to Muslims? What about the Indians living in England? What about the Caribbean/Africans living in England?

    Modern transportation is bit better than is was 40,000 years ago.

    The fact that some area still retain a heavy influence from 40,000 years ago is interesting, but it has nothing to do with the point that I made. Defend your land or you will be conquered. Why is that some controversial idea?

    Who ruled Briton from 1066 to today? Chedder man or the Normans.

    How influencial are the native American tribes in the United States today?

    If you're happy with your genes slightly getting into the dominant tribe of the future, well, good for you. Personally, I'd prefer that my great, great grandchildren are the dominant tribe of whatever land that they inhabit.

    Reasonable point. However, it's often the case that the dominant tribe stays fairly intact, i.e. the losing tribe is doesn't get a lot of its DNA in the ruling class for a very, very long time.

    When I was in the UK I noticed (on White and English/Scots named people) a fair number of faces of a type you don’t see very much of at all in the US. Joanna Lumley has such a face.

    This woman, Canada’s Quinn Dunki, has a little bit of that too:

    (I’m sure that I was in the room when this picture was taken: it’s from the front room in the dorm at Rockhurst. At one point I was sitting next to her when she was tearing into the box, but I don’t think that’s my knee since I don’t think I was wearing jeans. I got off work to go there and jeans are non dress code where I was working.)

    I have not spent enough time in Canada to know whether they are more common up there: I’m guessing they are more common in the Maritimes and Ontario than in the Western provinces, but that’s just speculation.

    Most of these White-Western men who are with East Asian women are reacting to what Feminism (and, perhaps, high fructose corn syrup in the USA at least) has wrought among their own, that is, among White-Western women. Rather than potential wives, many White men from politically ‘blue’ areas tend to see angry-feminist, pointlessly-ambitious career-women who often out-earn young White men of their age-cohorts plus a few years. Too many White women (such White men perceive) are, if not ‘ruined,’ then ‘inaccessible’ or at very least ‘difficult,’ and therefore relationships seem impossible. This is an increasingly significant cultural tragedy.

    There is no vast conspiracy of White males to ‘steal’ East Asian women, destroy East Asian manhood, and commit a soft generational genocide against Asians in White countries (as some on r/Hapas believe; though the majority of r/Hapas posters blame Asian women for the problem pretty directly, and sometimes even exclusively).

    It’s hard to imagine now, but this problem may well pass, in time (though not any time soon), because its origins are (I believe) political and a product of our times, with three pillars:

    WhiteFeminism+Multiculturalism+PerceivedWhitePrestige (by Asian women);

    “White prestige” is probably most of what they’re talking about when they speak of “white privilege.” The paradox is that attacking white men on the basis of their “privilege” only burninshes their prestige — it’s a self-sustaining cycle.

Or was it a filter where all the heterosexuals decided “screw it, i’d rather … a girl” and it’s all pinks? No idea.

    The next pope coming in would probably be around my age. I considered the priesthood when i was a teenager, but i really like girls. (From a young age–i was chasing them in kindergartern. Probably be #MeToo’d as a five year old today.) And a better decision no man has made. I’m guessing the boomer priests might be pretty gay?

    In my opinion the Church would be well advised to lift the ban and allow married priests. The reasons for the ban are long gone. Otherwise, i think it will be hard to both meet the shortage and to not have a pink priesthood. But, of course, the guys already in there are more invested and if queer, they like it that way.

    The absolutely critical thing to stave off the disaster of mainline Protestantism is to keep out women. Institutions run by heterosexual men with children–skin in the game–have the best chance of survival, propagating themselves intact into the future. Beyond that … there be dragons.

    Paul Rahe wrote about a priest named Gerald Fitzgerald who started sounding the alarm by the 1950s.


    https://ricochet.com/547522/prelates-and-pederasts/

    First, a priest named Gerald Fitzgerald – who had in 1947 in New Mexico founded a small religious order named Congregation of the Servants of the Paraclete to counsel priests who had difficulty with alcoholism, substance abuse, celibacy, and the like – had for decades been trying to alert the American bishops and officials in the Vatican (including Pope Paul VI) to the fact that priestly pederasty (which, he said, was unheard of before World War II) was within the American Catholic Church a growing problem.
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Fitzgerald_(priest)

    Rod Dreher cites a book by Randy Engel to the effect that several big-name early-20th-c. Cardinals and Archbishops were homosexual.

(He did have a vasectomy and still wraps it. No fool, he.)

    But what he really wants is not teen poon, but a woman somewhat younger-say 35-50, not fat, not stupid, no tats or piercings, either no kids or they are older and out of her hair, someone he can walk around with and not feel weird, someone with half a brain he can talk about substantive things with. Absolutely not to be found anywhere. At least, not around such a college town.

    Whenever I saw articles or TV presentations on Hugh Hefner, I always thought he had to be an idiot for chasing women with that much age differential.

    The US Catholic Church is foundationally mostly an Irish Church, with Germans and Italians piling in and building it out in their areas.

    I really hope that they repeal that unnatural policy too.

    You are right about the RCC allowing Protestant ministers to become RC priests while married. It shows how self-serving so-called canon “law” can be. It also shows that the RCC does NOT actually believe that having married priests is morally wrong and/or un-Biblical.

    I attended a parish for a couple years that was presided over by a priest who was married with children, a nice normal manly guy who had come over from Protestantism. I don’t recall which denomination. His wife and kids sat in the front row and she gave him a kiss after the Mass. It was refreshing.

    By the way, he called the exception that allowed his situation “the poaching rule” I.e. it helped the RCC “poach” clergy from those big bad Protestants.

    He counseled me with great care, sensitivity, and common sense on a relationship I then had with a young woman who was also a parishioner there. And he had more credibility with me due to his own real-life experience and the insight and maturity that had come with it. We related to each other, and he knew the practical consequences and implications of what he advised first-hand.

    I have a friendly-acquaintance sort of guitar pal-plays all fretted instruments, builds and repairs guitars, et al-who is in his early 60s and lives in a college town some distance from here. He's fairly buff, has a full head of dirty-blond Brian Jones hair, and is reportedly "bejingled". He tells me, and I have observed him around these girls, that with each incoming crop of zaftig 18/19 year old cheer captains and other such Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas/Missouri/ downstate Illinois coeds, he winds up tapping as many as he can handle, either as a one nighter or for a while until they get bored. (He did have a vasectomy and still wraps it. No fool, he.)

    But what he really wants is not teen poon, but a woman somewhat younger-say 35-50, not fat, not stupid, no tats or piercings, either no kids or they are older and out of her hair, someone he can walk around with and not feel weird, someone with half a brain he can talk about substantive things with. Absolutely not to be found anywhere. At least, not around such a college town.

    Whenever I saw articles or TV presentations on Hugh Hefner, I always thought he had to be an idiot for chasing women with that much age differential. He would have been happier with a woman say twenty years younger, who still looked good but not a sex bomb any more, someone with a similar level of fame and some money of her own.

    Well, if you were Hugh Hefner, there didn't have to be. Off the top of my head I can think of half a dozen singers, actresses, media or society types that would have worked. Could probably come up with a list of a dozen more prospects in a short time, and if I worked in the media in NY or LA probably a hundred. Shit, Hef was a multimillionaire and a household name.

    And no, they are not low maintenance, not at all , by Middle America standards. Again, he's Hef. That's what money and a staff are for.

    I'm far from a nihilist.

    I'm married with kids. I've joined several groups to slowly (and quietly) push for White identity. I'm perfectly happy to fight on the basis of "we live here."

    But I don't expect others to accept that reasoning. They don't give a shit that I live here, much as the European settlers didn't give a shit that Indians lived in North America before the Europeans arrived. And the European settlers were right, just various Indian tribes were right to not give a shit that some other Indian tribe occupied some patch of land before them.

    Only fags do gentle into that good night. My point is that we shouldn't expect others to roll over just because we say, "But, but, but, we live here."

    Moral reasoning isn’t for them, it’s for us. Everybody except Whites knows that morals only apply within the tribe

    We need our people to know that what we want is right and good and normal and justified

    The foreign invader getting shot in the head and kicked down into a mass grave, who cares what he thinks.

    We need the minds of the guys who are going to have to shoot and kick to be solid. We need them to say grimly “this is proper and necessary and good”.

    We don’t need more relativistic “well ya know, nobody owes you anything” that’s what I meant by nihilism.

    We can’t force the enemy to roll over if we don’t believe in what we are doing.

    I agree. In the end, it's the difference that matters. Everywhere. When blessed with deep insight, simplicity shines. See the Dalai-Lama quote in the FAZ interview quoted above:

    "Europe, or Germany for example, must not turn into an Arab country. Germany is Germany. (Laughs)"

    Btw. it's practically the same thought as the one, Steve brings up in his diversity post today. He just gave his version a slightly (almost Buddhist, so tender, hehe) ironic drive.

    The Latin Mass Catholics who dress and breed like Mormons did in the sixties like to opine that if Holy Mother Church survived the Borgia popes, she can survive Pope Francis Albert. That’s true, but after this guy there are going to be more just like him, and while the Roman Catholic Church will survive as a brand name, the things that differentiate it from Mainline Protestantism are probably dead meat.
     
    Outside observer, but not so sure.

    The Argentine anti-Pope is in the "Silent Generation" between my dad and me. He would have become a priest sometime around 1960--just before Vatican II. The question is how bad is it in the years following? Did the years of slop and uncertainty have a selection effect where the few that made it through were more committed with more sincere vocations? Or was it a filter where all the heterosexuals decided "screw it, i'd rather ... a girl" and it's all pinks? No idea.

    The next pope coming in would probably be around my age. I considered the priesthood when i was a teenager, but i really like girls. (From a young age--i was chasing them in kindergartern. Probably be #MeToo'd as a five year old today.) And a better decision no man has made. I'm guessing the boomer priests might be pretty gay?


    In my opinion the Church would be well advised to lift the ban and allow married priests. The reasons for the ban are long gone. Otherwise, i think it will be hard to both meet the shortage and to not have a pink priesthood. But, of course, the guys already in there are more invested and if queer, they like it that way.

    The absolutely critical thing to stave off the disaster of mainline Protestantism is to keep out women. Institutions run by heterosexual men with children--skin in the game--have the best chance of survival, propagating themselves intact into the future. Beyond that ... there be dragons.

    MRCGA!

    Paul Rahe wrote about a priest named Gerald Fitzgerald who started sounding the alarm by the 1950s.

    https://ricochet.com/547522/prelates-and-pederasts/

    First, a priest named Gerald Fitzgerald – who had in 1947 in New Mexico founded a small religious order named Congregation of the Servants of the Paraclete to counsel priests who had difficulty with alcoholism, substance abuse, celibacy, and the like – had for decades been trying to alert the American bishops and officials in the Vatican (including Pope Paul VI) to the fact that priestly pederasty (which, he said, was unheard of before World War II) was within the American Catholic Church a growing problem.

    If you’re happy with your genes slightly getting into the dominant tribe of the future, well, good for you. Personally, I’d prefer that my great, great grandchildren are the dominant tribe of whatever land that they inhabit.
     
    Aren't these two outcomes the same?

    Reasonable point. However, it’s often the case that the dominant tribe stays fairly intact, i.e. the losing tribe is doesn’t get a lot of its DNA in the ruling class for a very, very long time.

    Look at Steve’s posts about Norman names still dominating the upper class of England.

    I think that my logic is clear, if not how I’d like the world to be.
     
    What is your theory then? Please spell it out?

    It’s not a theory. It’s history. From a historic standpoint, successful tribes have grown and entered new territory. The record shows that conquering tribes experience much fewer problems down the road when they eliminate the current population, either by the sword or expelling them, than when they allow the conquered tribe to stick around.

    Granted, sometimes the two peoples are able to blend into one – the Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Britons come to mind – but that process takes a very, very long time and you usually have a fair amount of trouble in between.

    But most of the time, conquering tribes should eliminate the conquered tribe so that their descendants don’t have to fight the same battles again. Nothing personal, just business.

    History shows over and over that different tribes don’t mix well in the same land. Lasting peace is usually achieved by separating peoples into their own homelands if possible. It’s better for all. The process of achieving that separation can be gruesome indeed, but so is surgery; however, if the surgery allows the patient to be healthy for many decades to come, it’s worth it.

    This isn’t my theory. It’s history. And whether I think that it’s good or bad is a bit like asking me if I think the sun rising in the East and setting in the West is good or bad. It just is. But just to be nice, I’ll say, No, I don’t want to put different groups to sword, nor would I approve of it by others. That said, nature and history don’t care what I think. Mix different tribes together in the same territory and, historically speaking, you have brutal civil wars and massacres.

    Am I predicting that for the U.S. and Europe? How do I know the future. I just know history, and history says that the odds are that it will be ugly.

    Eastern Rite Catholics have married priests as well as several other advantages over the Roman Rite, but the Eastern Rite churches have pretty well pooped out in the US. Not sure why. I remember Bob Whitaker saying that he had gone to considerable trouble to get baptized in the Maronite rite.

    …but the Eastern Rite churches have pretty well pooped out in the US.

    Demographic weight.

    The US Catholic Church is foundationally mostly an Irish Church, with Germans and Italians piling in and building it out in their areas. Danny Thomas is a great guy, but there was only one of him compared to millions of us. So Thomas became just a vanilla Catholic (and married an Italian girl). It’s what’s on offer.

    This is a complicated topic. Suffice it to say that it is a cultural tragedy all around, not just one affecting one group.

    Most of these White-Western men who are with East Asian women are reacting to what Feminism (and, perhaps, high fructose corn syrup in the USA at least) has wrought among their own, that is, among White-Western women. Rather than potential wives, many White men from politically 'blue' areas tend to see angry-feminist, pointlessly-ambitious career-women who often out-earn young White men of their age-cohorts plus a few years. Too many White women (such White men perceive) are, if not 'ruined,' then 'inaccessible' or at very least 'difficult,' and therefore relationships seem impossible. This is an increasingly significant cultural tragedy.

    There is no vast conspiracy of White males to 'steal' East Asian women, destroy East Asian manhood, and commit a soft generational genocide against Asians in White countries (as some on r/Hapas believe; though the majority of r/Hapas posters blame Asian women for the problem pretty directly, and sometimes even exclusively).

    It's hard to imagine now, but this problem may well pass, in time (though not any time soon), because its origins are (I believe) political and a product of our times, with three pillars:

    WhiteFeminism+Multiculturalism+PerceivedWhitePrestige (by Asian women);

    ...take away any of those and the system falls apart, and "WMAF" racial mixing will recede to the relatively minimal levels it was in the past. How many Hapas will be born between now and when this Trinity dissolves, I cannot say.

    “White prestige” is probably most of what they’re talking about when they speak of “white privilege.” The paradox is that attacking white men on the basis of their “privilege” only burninshes their prestige — it’s a self-sustaining cycle.

    Btw, has anyone checked whether that Celtic heritage comes from the Celtic maternal or paternal line? My suspicion is that Celtic men added a lot less to modern Frenchman than Celtic women. Frankish father, Celtic mother.

    But enough with current ancient history, let's look at future ancient history. Births in France are around 20% Middle Eastern and North African Muslim and ~5% African.

    How Celtic are they?

    The British government got DNA from the 40,000 year old cheddar man body found in Cheddar Gorge. They compared his DNA with DNA of thousands of British people. Turns out that the majority of the British people are not Anglo Saxon’s Norman’s Romans or even ancient Celts.
    The majority are closer related to 40,000 Year old Cheddar man than to Anglo saxons Norman’s Celts or Romans

     

    Did the British government test the 10% or so kids born to Muslims? What about the Indians living in England? What about the Caribbean/Africans living in England?

    Modern transportation is bit better than is was 40,000 years ago.

    The fact that some area still retain a heavy influence from 40,000 years ago is interesting, but it has nothing to do with the point that I made. Defend your land or you will be conquered. Why is that some controversial idea?

    Who ruled Briton from 1066 to today? Chedder man or the Normans.

    How influencial are the native American tribes in the United States today?

    If you're happy with your genes slightly getting into the dominant tribe of the future, well, good for you. Personally, I'd prefer that my great, great grandchildren are the dominant tribe of whatever land that they inhabit.

    You sure don’t know anything about European history do you? France is a German name for the various tribes that invaded starting 1,700 years ago.

    But the Celts never left. If you ever go to France tour the rural areas. There are Celtic not French festivals all over.

    France is still a Gallic Celtic nation despite the German name and Latin language.

    I think there is a good chance the remove the married priest ban. If you are the religious type, being a priest is not a bad career option if you remove the celibacy thing. Security, status, and prestige are automatic. The Church has always let the eastern Catholic priests like the Ukrainian Catholics marry, and recently began allowing married Episcopalian priests who convert to remain married and be full priests. Right now, most of the new priests are coming from conservative and/or third world countries like Poland, Uganda, and the Philippines.

    I really hope that they repeal that unnatural policy too.

    You are right about the RCC allowing Protestant ministers to become RC priests while married. It shows how self-serving so-called canon “law” can be. It also shows that the RCC does NOT actually believe that having married priests is morally wrong and/or un-Biblical.

    It seems like commonsense that refugees return to their homes after the danger has passed.

    Then I remembered: which country has a large potential refugee return problem? Yep, Israel.

    Abandon all hope of the refugee rules being changed in our lifetimes.

    which country has a large potential refugee return problem? Yep, Israel.

    They aren’t refugees in the strict sense for two reasons: [1] They are more like expellees than refugees (some might not see a distinction, but it is in whether someone left voluntarily or not); [2] “Multi-generational refugee” is not likely a recognized concept in general.

    In the case of Gaza and the West Bank, they are living under brutal and humiliating Jewish occupation, but would we call Gaza and the West Bank-dwellers, born and raised in their open-air ghetto zone, “refugees”?

    Your argument is missing some steps. Why does he care about Europe? What is his argument for why Europe should be “European”?
     
    Perhaps it seems obvious to me on account of the fact that my own journey to nationalism went straight through the heart of multiculturalism. I have always been fascinated by foreigners. (No Whiskey, not in that way.).

    I came around to a sincere conviction that cultural diversity is a treasure, and if I can object to the destruction of someone else's culture, then surely I can just as well object to the destruction of my own. Anyone who says otherwise is claiming that European culture is uniquely evil and unworthy of protection. Our elites do in fact think this, but they don't like to be cornered and forced to say so explicitly.

    I think His Holiness is just an honest sage who won't be so hypothetical as to deny to Europeans the same right to self-assertion and self-preservation he expects for his own people.

    Further reflections:

    Perhaps the most charming thing about Tibet is that Buddhist piety pervades every aspect of daily life in Tibet. One might think this would be stifling, but in fact I think there is a tendency for secure religions to develop into versatile, accommodating, national traditions. Tibetan Buddhism is esoteric mysticism and devotional folk religion all at the same time.

    The fact is that once-a-week religion, considered a “private matter,” is simply not very enriching or edifying. Yet, once-a-week, private religion is all that is feasible in a diverse society. At the very least, any attempt to bring religion into daily public life is controversial and met with resistance.

    The point being: As a Buddhist, the Dalai Lama would be expected to take a very practical approach to religion. That is, it is only worthwhile insofar as it enhances the well-being of its adherents. Accordingly, he would see the introduction of a conflicting, and hostile religion into European society as particularly damaging to European spiritual life.

    i'll mention to him that you have outsmarted him, and are advising him to get with a woman who is just-now-hitting-The-Wall

    i bet they are low maintenance, as well. No need for Botox, no shopping habits


    > say 35-50, not fat, not stupid, no tats or piercings, either no kids or they are older and out of her hair, someone he can walk around with and not feel weird, someone with half a brain he can talk about substantive things with


    big inventory of those in North America, isn't there?

    Well, if you were Hugh Hefner, there didn’t have to be. Off the top of my head I can think of half a dozen singers, actresses, media or society types that would have worked. Could probably come up with a list of a dozen more prospects in a short time, and if I worked in the media in NY or LA probably a hundred. Shit, Hef was a multimillionaire and a household name.

    And no, they are not low maintenance, not at all , by Middle America standards. Again, he’s Hef. That’s what money and a staff are for.

    Okay, I'll bite and pretend this post is real.

    I have a friendly-acquaintance sort of guitar pal-plays all fretted instruments, builds and repairs guitars, et al-who is in his early 60s and lives in a college town some distance from here. He’s fairly buff, has a full head of dirty-blond Brian Jones hair, and is reportedly “bejingled”. He tells me, and I have observed him around these girls, that with each incoming crop of zaftig 18/19 year old cheer captains and other such Iowa/Nebraska/Kansas/Missouri/ downstate Illinois coeds, he winds up tapping as many as he can handle, either as a one nighter or for a while until they get bored. (He did have a vasectomy and still wraps it. No fool, he.)
     
    So, if I am reading this correctly, your boy is in his early-60s, is well-preserved, and has access to an ongoing stream of barely legal trim, yet...

    ...what he really wants is not teen poon, but a woman somewhat younger-say 35-50, not fat, not stupid, no tats or piercings, either no kids or they are older and out of her hair, someone he can walk around with and not feel weird, someone with half a brain he can talk about substantive things with. Absolutely not to be found anywhere. At least, not around such a college town.
     
    Honestly, your boy needs to learn the meaning of, "Never look a gift horse in the mouth," kick back, relax, and enjoy the bounty life has put in front of him.

    No. What he is doing is wrong and disrespects the women and what intimacy is supposed to mean. It’s not cool, it’s pathetic. Men need not be afraid of the inevitable snark they’ll get in response to comments like these. We need to stop acting like animals. If the man needs sex that bad at that age, meet women and look for a wife.

    Maybe he is praying now that we will have our own countries back
     
    Alternatively, he could pray that Muslims and Subsaharans have a better life by inheriting Europe with all its blessings. That they not be confined to the "tragic dirt" of Africa and the Mideast.

    Why doesn't he do this?

    He might come back as the fish. Or worse, one of us :))

    Stuff like this just brings a big smile to my face. Everybody knows white leftist practically worship the Dalai Lama. Are they all taking a sledgehammer to their Buddha statues right now? Hilarious

    I wonder if he has been saying these things for some time already. I get the impression that the media is less enamorated with him than it was in, say, 2006.

    I really hope that they repeal that unnatural policy too.

    You are right about the RCC allowing Protestant ministers to become RC priests while married. It shows how self-serving so-called canon “law” can be. It also shows that the RCC does NOT actually believe that having married priests is morally wrong and/or un-Biblical.

    I attended a parish for a couple years that was presided over by a priest who was married with children, a nice normal manly guy who had come over from Protestantism. I don’t recall which denomination. His wife and kids sat in the front row and she gave him a kiss after the Mass. It was refreshing.

    By the way, he called the exception that allowed his situation “the poaching rule” I.e. it helped the RCC “poach” clergy from those big bad Protestants.

    He counseled me with great care, sensitivity, and common sense on a relationship I then had with a young woman who was also a parishioner there. And he had more credibility with me due to his own real-life experience and the insight and maturity that had come with it. We related to each other, and he knew the practical consequences and implications of what he advised first-hand.

    He counseled me with great care, sensitivity, and common sense on a relationship I then had with a young woman who was also a parishioner there.

    What sort of particular advice do priests give about relationships?

    The Dalai Lama is a hypocrite, he himself is a refugee who has benefited significantly from the kindness of India and the people of the world but he deny the same kindness to others. He callously proclaimed that “…Europe belongs to Europeans” and that ultimately refugees should “develop their own country”. In other words, refugees should not be allowed to remain in European countries forever. This is very unbecoming from the man of peace and a Nobel Peace laureate.

    What the Dalai Lama said needs to be put into context to expose the tremendous harm his words will surely create. Malmo today is home to a large population of immigrants and refugees, and the Dalai Lama’s words come at a time when resentment against migrants and refugees are escalating in the European Union countries.

    The Dalai Lama’s statement directly targets an already disadvantaged and marginalized group of people facing increasing contempt by Europeans. It does not matter if the Dalai Lama seems to start off his message in a benevolent tone by asking Europe to receive, help and educate refugees seeking asylum when his ultimate message is to deny these refugees the opportunity to establish new homes and lives in Europe.

    This is a complicated topic. Suffice it to say that it is a cultural tragedy all around, not just one affecting one group.

    Most of these White-Western men who are with East Asian women are reacting to what Feminism (and, perhaps, high fructose corn syrup in the USA at least) has wrought among their own, that is, among White-Western women. Rather than potential wives, many White men from politically 'blue' areas tend to see angry-feminist, pointlessly-ambitious career-women who often out-earn young White men of their age-cohorts plus a few years. Too many White women (such White men perceive) are, if not 'ruined,' then 'inaccessible' or at very least 'difficult,' and therefore relationships seem impossible. This is an increasingly significant cultural tragedy.

    There is no vast conspiracy of White males to 'steal' East Asian women, destroy East Asian manhood, and commit a soft generational genocide against Asians in White countries (as some on r/Hapas believe; though the majority of r/Hapas posters blame Asian women for the problem pretty directly, and sometimes even exclusively).

    It's hard to imagine now, but this problem may well pass, in time (though not any time soon), because its origins are (I believe) political and a product of our times, with three pillars:

    WhiteFeminism+Multiculturalism+PerceivedWhitePrestige (by Asian women);

    ...take away any of those and the system falls apart, and "WMAF" racial mixing will recede to the relatively minimal levels it was in the past. How many Hapas will be born between now and when this Trinity dissolves, I cannot say.

    ‘feminism’ == ‘I can eat whatever I like and if you object you hate women‘.

    Eastern Rite Catholics have married priests as well as several other advantages over the Roman Rite, but the Eastern Rite churches have pretty well pooped out in the US. Not sure why. I remember Bob Whitaker saying that he had gone to considerable trouble to get baptized in the Maronite rite.

    The Vatican II rapprochement with Jews, while understandable in the aftermath of the Holocaust, was taken very badly by Middle Eastern Christians. They consider it a betrayal and it severely damaged the prestige and reputation of the Roman church in their eyes.
