From the Irish Times:

White privilege is real and it exists in Ireland

White Irish people are expert at denying the extent of society’s racial prejudice

Thu, Oct 20, 2016, 01:00
Dean Van Nguyen

The expression “white privilege” has been around for years but “white skin privilege” has recently been repopularised in the US, where numerous African-American deaths at the hands of police have ignited the Black Lives Matter movement. Broadly speaking, it means the interlocking societal benefits that Caucasians in the West enjoy – benefits that non-white people in the same social, political, or economic circumstances can only look at from the outside, like kids pressed up against a sweet shop window.

In Ireland – a country where up until very recently anyone not 100 per cent white and Christian was seen as something different – white privilege is rooted in the blissful unawareness of the obstacles people of colour experience. The failure to see the destructive attitudes that exist in our communities; our collective neglect in making this land inhospitable for racist ideas and actions.

The best example I have is my own life. I’m half-Asian, but with plenty of white people here to blend in with, I pretty much pass for white on the street. It would be hard for me to deny that it’s made my life easier. Nobody has ever told me to go back to my own country or denied my right to identify as an Irish person. No stranger has ever targeted me with a racial slur. I inadvertently benefit from white privilege; except, of course, online when my foreign-sounding surname means it’s open season.

White privilege is different to overt prejudice and the majority of Irish people deplore naked, boilerplate racism, of course. But one of its defining traits is that those who benefit may be unaware that they do so.

There are plenty of Irish people who will look away when a person of colour – born here or not – points to race-based prejudice. They’ve created their own bubble, unaffected by the same discrimination, that denies its existence. They will contort themselves into pretzels to stop it from being burst. …

In 2016, people of colour’s modern-day torments are still being marginalised. Prejudice isn’t being called out. Victims of racism are being met with suspicion. When it comes to race relations, there’s plenty of distance left to run. White privilege is real and it’s in Ireland.

Dean Van Nguyen is a freelance journalist and editor covering media, music and pop culture

For an alternative view, there’s John Michael McDonagh’s 2011 movie The Guard, a comic Irish version of In the Heat of the Night, with Brendan Gleeson as a small town Irish policeman and Don Cheadle as a prissy American FBI agent forced to team up:

    Ask the white farmer's who used to own land in Zimbabwe about Black Privilege. Maybe criticize the entire country regarding the horribly misguided notion of black supremacy.

    You really can't, since it's assumed Blacks are overall, a simple-minded, primitive folk, who will never be able to understand the 21st century concept of self-annihilation. The logic being to hand over everything to ignoramuses, because they're ignoramuses.

    Why shouldn’t white irish people be privileged in their own country?
     
    Because there's only ONE group of "whites" who are privileged to have their own country, and it's on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean...
  3. benefits that non-white people in the same social, political, or economic circumstances can only look at from the outside

    What is the nature of this absurd complaint? A non-White has been given the same social, political and economic circumstances – complete equality – yet there is some mystical hardship that is still being suffered. Maybe racial separation is the only cure.

    Want to see REAL RACISM? Try Vietnam, specifically racism against children of Vietnamese mothers (some of them prostitutes) and U.S. servicemen.

    From the august (but now 90% Soros-co-opted) Wikipedia - article on "American Homecoming Act" (BTW - would Vietnam, China, Japan etc. pass a law to make it easier for children fathered by their soldiers to come "home" more than ten years later?)

    Amerasian children faced prejudice in Vietnam sometimes referred to as bui doi (“the dust of life” or “trash”)

    ...

    Amerasian children who stayed in their respective countries found difficulties. Many of the children faced prejudice since their fair skin or very dark skin, blue eyes, or curly black hair would quickly identify them as Amerasian.

    Didn’t Vietnamese kick out French and Americans out of Vietnam because they felt, “Because we live here?”

    Dumb idiot.

    Ironically, his PC crap was planted in his mind by privileged globalist whites into virtue-signaling.

    Virtue-signaling is white globalist privilege.

    Ireland belonging to Irish is not privilege. It’s like a man owning his own body. A man and his body are one. A people and their nation are one.

    When Brits were in Ireland and bossed around the Irish, that was privilege.
    Brits being masters of Britain is fine. But Brits being masters of Ireland is privilege.

    French ruling over France is not privilege. It is national right. French ruling over Vietnam is privilege.

    Likewise, Vietnamese ruling over Vietnam is not privilege. Vietnam ruling over Cambodia is privilege.

    This Nguyen is a globalist-imperialist. He says the people of a nation don’t have a sacred bond and right to that nation. That nation belongs to the world. It is imperialist talk. It’s like the French saying the Viets have no special claim on Vietnam.

    This guy should visit Vietnam and see how the racially mixed children of American GI's left behind were treated in that country after the Americans pulled out in the mid 1970s. It wasn't pleasant for them and the ones who finally made it to America feel lucky. The most racist people on earth are Asians. Japan allows zero immigration and still treats their "untouchable" Korean minority who do all their dirty work as garbage collectors and butchers as dirt. The rest of Asia isn't much better and no country in that part of the world would ever thing of concepts like diversity or multiculturalism. Don't forget that Chinese built the biggest wall in history to keep out migrant invaders. Why Ireland with its population of less than 6 million feels any obligation to flood itself with millions of 3rd worlders and Muslims is beyond comprehension. Their country could be a suburb of any big city in China, India, and other places in the 3rd world so why do they have to become the 3rd world and the indigenous people of Ireland strangers in their own country? Like Sweden Ireland is destroying itself by open borders. One of the biggest promoters of a multicultural Eire is a man named Alan Shatter. Look him up on Google. Keep in mind it wasn't that long ago that the IRA were trying to throw the British out of Ulster and now former IRA Gerry Adams promotes 3rd world and Muslim migration to his country. Imagine a Muslim dominated Eire. That probably will happen by the year 2040. Where is there a modern St. Patrick to drive the snakes out of Ireland again?

    Reminds me of my favorite line in the movie version of "Paint Your Wagon." The hellfire preacher comes to No-Name City and is excoriating the locals for their sin and debauchery.

    In the run up to his song, he calls them blasphemers and fornicators. Down on the muddy street two old '49ers are listening. One turns to the other and says, "What's a fornicator?" The other replies, "I don't know. I ain't a religious man."

    I still shy away from calling myself anti-miscegenation. However...

    Since moving to Asia, I have met quite a few more people with Asian-Western combo parents, and I would say either a majority or a large minority have serious issues with their background.

    In the US, I grew up with Asian friends, and I never noticed identity issues with Asians living in Western cultures.

    Likewise, I have never been aware of whites of, say, German and Irish backgrounds having identity issues. I can imagine it as, long before I started reading iSteve, I gave consideration to my own background, which includes Scots, German, Norwegian, and Swedish. I asked myself, "Why am I not conflicted over things like which Christmas traditions to follow?" I couldn't find a good answer, but the fact remains that I simply do not feel conflicted. I go to Scottish Games and enjoy it. I visit my German relatives in the mid-west and enjoy their thoroughly (thoroughly) German-American identity. At Christmas, I listen to Celtic music and make lefse. None of my ethnic customs feel conflicted, although I can see that they should.

    I don't know what Asian-Western "half"s have a problem with. I suspect it has to do with a multitude of things from the mundane (like the fact that Buddhists and Christians don't celebrate the same holidays) to the psychological (like the fact that Asians have, historically, been subjugated to Westerners).

    I would also point out that I have noticed that mixed background Asians, such as half-Chinese-half-Malay, sometimes have the same issues, although I have never met a white person who has a chip on his shoulder over being half-French-half-English.

    Anyhow, I guess my point is just that, as I am getting older and meeting more people from around the world, I am trending toward the feeling that people ought not to race mix in their own lives, for purely practical reasons related to their family lives and children.
  15. Well I would certainly tell Nguyen to go back to his own country and, additionally, I would reject his “right” to “identify” as Irish. I would go further, and I’d target him with a racial slur. The racial slur I would use would be “slope,” not that I’m especially clear on what that means (and not that it matters). I’d probably also characterize him as a faggot, which he clearly seems to be. It is interesting that a people (my own) who fought, or struggled, against their neighbors and close genetic relations (the perfidious, Jew-loving, brother-war-instigating ruling people of England) for so many centuries should, basically, moments after independence, offer up their nation to whomever — well, that is interesting. Disheartening, of course, but of interest.

    Mixed-race globo people like Nguyen have no fixed identity or place. Their idea of culture is rap thug culture, pornography, hollywood, celebrity mania, and comics.

    I’m sure Nguyen considers himself a ‘global citizen’, a preening and arrogant sense of neo-imperialist privilege and entitlement that says every nation belongs to him. He is the sort to go to Armenia and accuse Armenians of ‘Armenian privilege’. In other words, Armenia and its history, culture, and territory have no special meaning to Armenians. They belong just as much to some mixed-race half-Viet turd whose idea of culture is rappers calling each other the n-word, singing about biatches, and wearing dumb blings. That is his message to the entire world, to each and every nation. He is a useful idiot trying to turn every nation into a colony of Hollywood and MTV.

    He’s a globalist cultural-imperialist who only cares about American gangsta rap culture and Hollywood and celebrity skank culture.
    Just look at his tumblr site.

    What a trashy moron.

    http://deanvannguyen.tumblr.com/

    He knows or cares nothing of Vietnamese history or culture, or Irish history and culture. For the likes of him, every nation exists so that trashy vulgar globo-idiots can go there feeling ‘your nation belongs to me’. He thinks he is better than other people because his culture consists of ugly rap and worship of homos funded by Wall Street and Las Vegas.

    He doesn’t travel around the world with respect for other cultures. He doesn’t feel that Russia has special meaning for Russians, Hungary has special meaning for Hungarians, Japan has special meaning for Japanese.
    He thinks he is hipper and cooler and better than rest of humanity because he’s an agent of trashy American cultural imperialism that flows out of the sewage of Hollywood, MTV, and Comicon. He thinks Ireland should be just another Los Angeles.

    Instead of trying to learn about other peoples and histories and lands, he sees every land as just some DJ-station for rappers and whores who imitate pornified American culture.

    He is a globalist and, as such, an imperialist. His attitude to every people is YOUR NATION ISN’T YOURS. YOUR CULTURE ISN’T YOURS. YOUR HISTORY ISN’T YOURS. IF YOU THINK THEY ARE, YOU ARE INTO ‘PRIVILEGE’. YOUR NATION IS MY NATION, AND IT IS MY RIGHT TO GO TO YOUR NATION AND SPREAD RAP CULTURE AS THE MAIN CULTURE, AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT, YOU ARE A ‘RACIST’.

    Thankfully, not all Viets are total idiots.

    The author of The Sympathizer and Nothing Ever Dies, Viet Thanh Nguyen, seems to be thoughtful. He may be a liberal, but he’s a thinking liberal with a sense of ambiguity and irony.
    Agree or disagree, at least he tries to think about things and see things from many angles.

    But this half-Irish and half-Viet globalist promoter of rap culture is just trash.
    He is globalist flotsam that floats with rest of the cultural sewer.

    Pay attention to the other Nguyen who cares about culture and history, their limitations but also their necessities. It is one thing to say one should recognize humanity beyond one’s own race and nation. But it’s another to say that one’s nation doesn’t belong to one’s people. That’s the sort of garbage peddled by American neo-imperialism whose attitude is “inside every g**k is an American trying to come out.” To Dean Nguyen, Irish are just globo-pod people whose purpose is to turn into ersatz consumer-Americans addicted to rap trash.

    Will give it a shot even if it can't possibly live up to In Bruges which the city Brugge should have paid them for because it was great promotion for the city. The music was perfectly chosen as well:

  29. The Guard is a pretty standard police procedural movie. It takes place in Ireland and Gleason was good in it, but aside from that I don’t think it’s worth going out of your way to see. Gleason and the same director made a black comedy, Calvary, a couple years back about a good priest surrounded by miserable people and nihilism in the post scandal wreckage of Irish Catholicism. I though that was a better and a much more worthwhile film.

    I love rebel songs, but lately they only remind me of how degenerate modern Ireland has become. Ireland is the only nation to ever legalize gay marriage by a popular vote. If Pearse, DeValera or Collins could see what the country has become, they wouldn't have bothered. In barely a generation the Irish have transformed from a people who were famous for being brave and pious to generic euro trash. They're like zombies with no higher purpose beyond eating, drinking and cumming. They're no different or better than the English. Both peoples are giving away their countries to economic refugees as quickly as they can. They have no animosity for the invaders, but they'll still larp about each other or more recently the Polish menace. Hatred for other whites is the only outlet for national pride they're still allowed.

    Since moving to Asia, I have met quite a few more people with Asian-Western combo parents, and I would say either a majority or a large minority have serious issues with their background.

    In the US, I grew up with Asian friends, and I never noticed identity issues with Asians living in Western cultures.

    Likewise, I have never been aware of whites of, say, German and Irish backgrounds having identity issues. I can imagine it as, long before I started reading iSteve, I gave consideration to my own background, which includes Scots, German, Norwegian, and Swedish. I asked myself, “Why am I not conflicted over things like which Christmas traditions to follow?” I couldn’t find a good answer, but the fact remains that I simply do not feel conflicted. I go to Scottish Games and enjoy it. I visit my German relatives in the mid-west and enjoy their thoroughly (thoroughly) German-American identity. At Christmas, I listen to Celtic music and make lefse. None of my ethnic customs feel conflicted, although I can see that they should.

    I don’t know what Asian-Western “half”s have a problem with. I suspect it has to do with a multitude of things from the mundane (like the fact that Buddhists and Christians don’t celebrate the same holidays) to the psychological (like the fact that Asians have, historically, been subjugated to Westerners).

    I would also point out that I have noticed that mixed background Asians, such as half-Chinese-half-Malay, sometimes have the same issues, although I have never met a white person who has a chip on his shoulder over being half-French-half-English.

    Anyhow, I guess my point is just that, as I am getting older and meeting more people from around the world, I am trending toward the feeling that people ought not to race mix in their own lives, for purely practical reasons related to their family lives and children.

    At the risk of coming across as whiny, I'll do my best to summarize what I think the root of the problem is being born half Asian.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc... Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn't mean crap - it's what other people identify you as that really counts. And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    I once got called out on my racial hypersensitivity (like being offended by the "where are you from?" question): It was put to me this way: you think you are white and you absolutely hate it whenever someone reminds you that you aren't.
    , @Marina
    Chinese and Malay is a pretty volatile combination, as under current Malaysian law, the Chinese partner has to convert to Islam to marry the Malay Muslim. We know a girl whose Chinese mother converted, married a Malay guy, had a baby, and then divorced when the child was young. Mom reverted to her earlier Christian faith and raised the daughter in it. There's just one problem: Islam is transmitted paternally, and the daughter (and her mother) are not apostates according to Malaysian law. It's a mess and she ended up leaving the country entirely.

    I know a lot of well adjusted half Asians, but they tend to be quiet and unobtrusive people who are off living their lives, rather than loud SJWs. Vancouver, for one, is teeming with them. They also are more likely to have Asian fathers than mothers, go figure.

  37. Given Ireland’s relative lack of achievement over the centuries, more than a few Irish people will unconsciously feel good about being obliquely refereed to as oppressors. This means the Irish are no longer ranked among the lowest and get to take up the white man’s privilege burden. Accepting this white guilt means the Irish have been accepted into the bourgeois society of all the other whites. Nothing makes one feel more superior than being told they have inbred privileges over 92% of the rest of the human race.

    And for Dean Van Nguyen this is quite simply a victim-status grab. Now his employment prospects shoot up as the Irish can prove they are goodwhites by hiring him and receiving his propaganda protection.

    Ireland is getting flooded with immigrants at the same time Irish masculinity to diving into deep cover.

I remember another case where a Chinese girl who had been adopted by Irish parents got a whole article published in the Times about how her experience of having two economically and socially outcast underclass girls make a comment on her Chineseness by saying ‘Ting tong’ or something, as they walked by, proved that Ireland was terrible and needed to be more Chinese.

    She saw no irony in the mild comment coming from the politically and socially invisible girls living in public housing and her own screed against them being published in the premiere press or having been adopted into a loving first world family. Maybe she didn’t realise they were lashing out at her middle-classness as much as anything. Anyone who isn’t a part of the poor urban underclass in Dublin has experienced somebody saying something to them when they walk through those areas at some point, but she took it as a special assault!

    Interestingly Ireland is one historical example where politicians explicitly sent in legitimate refugees to politically and socially marginalise the indigenous population with the British government settling protestant Palatine refugees in Ireland in 1701. They even gave them free housing and money to start them off. Needless to say it was a different era and they weren’t made to feel very welcome, with very few of their descendants still living in Ireland.

    We see a similar phenomenon in the US, especially with blacks.

    I look as Aryan as they come and I, like everyone else, have been treated poorly in many ways by many people in many different social situations. As a rule, I attribute this to the character of the individual in question, not to my phenotype. And sometimes I also recognize that my behavior prior to the poor treatment may have been less than exemplary and thus contributed to a poor reaction. Even when blacks or Aztecs treat me unjustly poorly, I recognize that they probably treat everyone like shit.

    But many, many blacks attribute any poor treatment by a white person to racial prejudice. And of course this is the only permissible view according to PC orthodoxy. It is not PC to tell a person of melanin that they may have perceived racial prejudice when there was none.

    Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn’t mean crap – it’s what other people identify you as that really counts.
     
    I wholeheartedly disagree. How you identify yourself has - or can have - a very large bearing on how others see you.

    I am not part-anything. In ancestry, I am completely East Asian. But I never had a chip on my shoulder, and always considered myself very blessed, first to be born in a civilized country with an ancient tradition, in a loving and honorable family, then to have grown up there and then in the United States, the greatest country on earth, and later to be a citizen of this great country. I always thought that I was the architect of my own destiny. So I decided to be who I wanted to be, not what others saw or wanted to see in me. So in self-identity, I am not Asian-American - I consider myself a full American, period. I have thought and behaved thusly, and others have treated me the same. Once in a while, after seeing me pick something very spicy to eat, my friends will say, "Heck, while talking and hanging out with you, I forget that you are Asian... until I see you eat that stuff." And then I usually retort, "You know what? *I* forget that I am Asian... until I am hungry."

    And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures – you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white.
     
    With all due consideration to your particular experience and feelings, I think you are engaging in projection to say that "all mixed race people in white cultures" wish they were white. My children certainly don't. They are happy to be who they are. They are faithful Christians (Catholics), patriotic Americans, members of our community, and my children first... being half-white/half-Asian is rather low in their self-identity. They mostly see themselves as all-American boys and girls, with just a touch of the exotic.

    I don't doubt that some mixed children would wish they were white. But I think there is a rather wide spectrum on how mixed children seen themselves in ethno-cultural terms (racially, science confirms the levels of mixture). I can think of numerous factors that go into that "equation" so to speak. For example, mixed white-black children almost always identify as blacks while mixed white-Asians frequently identify as whites. There are also family dynamics at work. When the parents originate from highly unequal socio-economic backgrounds, that can obviously have a powerful impact. In contrast, when the parents are "assortatively" matched, I think the identity challenge is less significant for the children. Similarly, looks and personal achievements can also be strong factors (e.g. I don't think Nathan Adrian goes around wishing he were full-white, seeing as he is a hunky, muscular, 6' 6" tall, five-time Olymic gold medalist in swimming - that guy is ALWAYS grinning in photographs, like life is so awesome for him or something).

    My children are all native-born Southerners, and occasionally they will needle me (East Asian-born, educated in NYC and New England) and their mother (Midwestern-born) that they are, "by Grace of God, real Southerners," while their mom and I are carpetbaggers.

It is said that every former English Colony has a prominent newspaper called the Times, hence New York Times, Times of India, Irish Times etc. If present or former British territory does not have a prominent newspaper called the Times this is indicative that these places were never English Colonies, eg Scotland, Northern Ireland, or the territories had significant influence and immigration from other parts of Britain, eg Canada.
    It is the sort of piece that appears in certain London newspapers or magazines. Not the “Times” of London, rather “The Guardian”. The whining reflections of some overpaid hack against his native society/racist plebs/ignorant middle classes etc.
    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I doubt that the piece would have appeared in any other newspaper- North or South. The Irish Times is the debased modern descendent of an organ founded, partly at least, to promote 19th Century Metropolitan ( London ) culture in the Colonies and elsewhere. The fact that it is doing so should surprise no one. Unfortunately, Metropolitan Society is much more debased in many ways today, as are the pieces on offer.

  49. I Pity The Poor Immigrant

    I pity the poor immigrant
    Who wishes he would’ve stayed home
    Who uses all his power to do evil
    But in the end is always left so alone
    That man whom with his fingers cheats
    And who lies with every breath
    Who passionately hates his life
    And likewise, fears his death
    I pity the poor immigrant
    Whose strength is spent in vain
    Whose heaven is like ironsides
    Whose tears are like rain
    Who eats but is not satisfied
    Who hears but does not see
    Who falls in love with wealth itself
    And turns his back on me

    From Bob Dylan’s 1967 album John Weseley Harding

    The globalists via their diverse foot soldiers are hoping to accomplish the McGenocide that the English never could finish.

    I don’t think the English ever wanted to kill all the Irish, any more than the Normans wanted to kill all the English (in fact the “English” invasion of Ireland was a Norman invasion, the English didn’t have much say in the matter). Feudal lords had to have productive people to tax and to fight for them.

    The funny thing is that Gerry Adams and co are still moaning about the evil Brits even as Ireland is filling up with very non-English people. The number of non-Irish nationals has doubled between 2001 and 2011, they’re now 1 in 8 of the population, and Poles are the largest minority, up from 2,000 to 122,000 in a decade.

    There are also a number of English threatening to take citizenship post-Brexit, and Irish politicians are welcoming them. How much of that is posturing I don’t know – but the unique arrangements between Britain and Ireland (Irish citizens can vote in UK elections, and you can hold both British and Irish passports) make it actually quite a neat idea if you’re in Ireland a lot. There are over 110,000 Brits south of the border.

    The Irish basically spent the 20th century fighting a civil war over the religious character of their nation. It's insane that they would just roll over for multiculturalism.

    An old man once said to me: "The Irish would blow up another White man with a car bomb for using the wrong prayer book but now they let n*****s take over Derry for fear of being called racist!"

    The Irish were of the wrong religion and kept their own ways. Even in the islands they didn't make good slaves. There were plenty of Highland Scots of the proper religion for menial tasks in Eire proper. Even the Scots had enough in short order and moved on to the American Highlands.

    Moving on here- I finally recognize what White Privilege is. We called it an ethnic neighborhood when I was young. Black Privilege used to make me uncomfortable driving through black areas of the Southside of Chicago. But , if peaceful, everybody deserves their bit of turf.

    Van is a Sino-Vietnamese word (i.e. borrowed from Chinese) and broadly means letters, culture etc.

    It has throughout history been a very popular component of given names among the educated classes in Vietnam (and of course among those aspiring to education). One recalls, for instance, former South Vietnamese president Nguyen Van Thieu.

    NOTE: Nguyen is technically the surname (clan name), but given names alone are used even in relatively formal contexts due to the paucity of distinct surnames in Vietnamese.

    Ireland belonging to Irish is not privilege. It's like a man owning his own body. A man and his body are one. A people and their nation are one.

    When Brits were in Ireland and bossed around the Irish, that was privilege.
    Brits being masters of Britain is fine. But Brits being masters of Ireland is privilege.

    French ruling over France is not privilege. It is national right. French ruling over Vietnam is privilege.

    Likewise, Vietnamese ruling over Vietnam is not privilege. Vietnam ruling over Cambodia is privilege.

    This Nguyen is a globalist-imperialist. He says the people of a nation don't have a sacred bond and right to that nation. That nation belongs to the world. It is imperialist talk. It's like the French saying the Viets have no special claim on Vietnam.

    I remember another case where a Chinese girl who had been adopted by Irish parents got a whole article published in the Times about how her experience of having two economically and socially outcast underclass girls make a comment on her Chineseness by saying 'Ting tong' or something, as they walked by, proved that Ireland was terrible and needed to be more Chinese.

    She saw no irony in the mild comment coming from the politically and socially invisible girls living in public housing and her own screed against them being published in the premiere press or having been adopted into a loving first world family. Maybe she didn't realise they were lashing out at her middle-classness as much as anything. Anyone who isn't a part of the poor urban underclass in Dublin has experienced somebody saying something to them when they walk through those areas at some point, but she took it as a special assault!

    Interestingly Ireland is one historical example where politicians explicitly sent in legitimate refugees to politically and socially marginalise the indigenous population with the British government settling protestant Palatine refugees in Ireland in 1701. They even gave them free housing and money to start them off. Needless to say it was a different era and they weren't made to feel very welcome, with very few of their descendants still living in Ireland.

    We see a similar phenomenon in the US, especially with blacks.

    I look as Aryan as they come and I, like everyone else, have been treated poorly in many ways by many people in many different social situations. As a rule, I attribute this to the character of the individual in question, not to my phenotype. And sometimes I also recognize that my behavior prior to the poor treatment may have been less than exemplary and thus contributed to a poor reaction. Even when blacks or Aztecs treat me unjustly poorly, I recognize that they probably treat everyone like shit.

    But many, many blacks attribute any poor treatment by a white person to racial prejudice. And of course this is the only permissible view according to PC orthodoxy. It is not PC to tell a person of melanin that they may have perceived racial prejudice when there was none.

    At the risk of coming across as whiny, I'll do my best to summarize what I think the root of the problem is being born half Asian.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc... Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn't mean crap - it's what other people identify you as that really counts. And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    I once got called out on my racial hypersensitivity (like being offended by the "where are you from?" question): It was put to me this way: you think you are white and you absolutely hate it whenever someone reminds you that you aren't.

    I’m anything but PC but I realize the “where are you from” question is generally rude unless the person has a noticeable outside accent or has otherwise implied or shown rhat they are from a different place.

    If I am curious about a person’s background I generally try to do so in an oblique way. If I choose to ask directly I do so as humbly.

    Raymond’s new family practices female genital mutilation, specifically clitorectomy. Termed “female circumcision” by the culturally sensitive and euphemistically inclined, the barbaric practice is common among African Muslims. Not infrequently the clitoris is cut out without the benefit of anesthesia or surgical instruments. Broken bottles or tin can lids occasionally serve as scalpels. This means that often not only is the clitoris cut out but that portions of the labia are also cut away or severely damaged. According to reports from the refugee camps in Kenya, hundreds of girls are being rushed through the mutilation because U.S.-sponsored cultural orientation classes have informed the refugees that the practice is illegal in the United States. The Somali Bantu usually excise the clitoris when girls reach the age of eight or nine. In recent weeks, girls as young as two have undergone the ordeal.

    I will to have the privilege to have no people doing any of that, or reckoning any of that understandable and acceptable, in the same country where I do live.

    I am unaware of how many Vietnamese are now in Ireland, but I can assure you that there are more than enough African immigrants in Dublin thanks to efforts of Alan Shatter and his cohorts in the print and broadcast media. The Irish Times makes the New York Times the model of probity while the national broadcaster RTE makes NPR the model of balance and fairness.

    I don't live in my country of birth but as soon as I open my mouth I am asked where I am from. The answer is the United States and I would not mind the question at all if not for the fact that news and cultural products emanating from my country of birth are so invasively thrust upon the people of this particular land that a very predictable stream of about 5 to 10 standard questions almost inevitably follows. At best I begin to sound to myself like a broken record; at worst some of the questions frequently get unusually psychological and even invasive for what the French are usually willing to discuss with strangers. I realize I am paying the price for the notoriety of American culture, and it's a fairly minor annoyance when it comes down to it, but week after week it does wear greatly on one's patience. And I would really love to project some of the angst onto the real culprits of the creation of our notoriety in Hollywood, in D.C. and at the New York Times.

    Oh, I do get benefits out of it, albeit mostly material and mostly relative: French companies can't seem to find enough Anglophone engineers, so I always have a hefty portfolio of clients harassing me and very good leeway for negotiations. Even so, probably not *as* high of revenues as I would have in the States but I can work them much better over here.

    Beyond that, being American abroad is for the most part a handicap (unless you're in a Third World hellhole and are paid in dollars, in which case you're treated as a god i.e. Moloch), and being an American citizen abroad is certainly an inconvenience (at best) given the eagerness of our own government to punish us for having the audacity to live outside the U.S. and of Saracen terrorists to use us as ambulant ATMs (a proclivity which IS admittedly at least partly the fault of the U.S. government for paying ransom for the lowliest scum).

    I still shy away from calling myself anti-miscegenation. However...

    Since moving to Asia, I have met quite a few more people with Asian-Western combo parents, and I would say either a majority or a large minority have serious issues with their background.

    In the US, I grew up with Asian friends, and I never noticed identity issues with Asians living in Western cultures.

    Likewise, I have never been aware of whites of, say, German and Irish backgrounds having identity issues. I can imagine it as, long before I started reading iSteve, I gave consideration to my own background, which includes Scots, German, Norwegian, and Swedish. I asked myself, "Why am I not conflicted over things like which Christmas traditions to follow?" I couldn't find a good answer, but the fact remains that I simply do not feel conflicted. I go to Scottish Games and enjoy it. I visit my German relatives in the mid-west and enjoy their thoroughly (thoroughly) German-American identity. At Christmas, I listen to Celtic music and make lefse. None of my ethnic customs feel conflicted, although I can see that they should.

    I don't know what Asian-Western "half"s have a problem with. I suspect it has to do with a multitude of things from the mundane (like the fact that Buddhists and Christians don't celebrate the same holidays) to the psychological (like the fact that Asians have, historically, been subjugated to Westerners).

    I would also point out that I have noticed that mixed background Asians, such as half-Chinese-half-Malay, sometimes have the same issues, although I have never met a white person who has a chip on his shoulder over being half-French-half-English.

    Anyhow, I guess my point is just that, as I am getting older and meeting more people from around the world, I am trending toward the feeling that people ought not to race mix in their own lives, for purely practical reasons related to their family lives and children.

    Chinese and Malay is a pretty volatile combination, as under current Malaysian law, the Chinese partner has to convert to Islam to marry the Malay Muslim. We know a girl whose Chinese mother converted, married a Malay guy, had a baby, and then divorced when the child was young. Mom reverted to her earlier Christian faith and raised the daughter in it. There’s just one problem: Islam is transmitted paternally, and the daughter (and her mother) are not apostates according to Malaysian law. It’s a mess and she ended up leaving the country entirely.

    I know a lot of well adjusted half Asians, but they tend to be quiet and unobtrusive people who are off living their lives, rather than loud SJWs. Vancouver, for one, is teeming with them. They also are more likely to have Asian fathers than mothers, go figure.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc...

And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    I once got called out on my racial hypersensitivity (like being offended by the "where are you from?" question): It was put to me this way: you think you are white and you absolutely hate it whenever someone reminds you that you aren't.

    I don't think the English ever wanted to kill all the Irish, any more than the Normans wanted to kill all the English (in fact the "English" invasion of Ireland was a Norman invasion, the English didn't have much say in the matter). Feudal lords had to have productive people to tax and to fight for them.

    The funny thing is that Gerry Adams and co are still moaning about the evil Brits even as Ireland is filling up with very non-English people. The number of non-Irish nationals has doubled between 2001 and 2011, they're now 1 in 8 of the population, and Poles are the largest minority, up from 2,000 to 122,000 in a decade.

    There are also a number of English threatening to take citizenship post-Brexit, and Irish politicians are welcoming them. How much of that is posturing I don't know - but the unique arrangements between Britain and Ireland (Irish citizens can vote in UK elections, and you can hold both British and Irish passports) make it actually quite a neat idea if you're in Ireland a lot. There are over 110,000 Brits south of the border.

Catholicism is the only true Christian, not some filthy protestant heresy started by an uxocidal pagan king. The English will burn in hell for leaving the true faith, much less for their ancestral crimes against the Irish people. Ireland is for the pure Celtic, Irish people and only the Irish people. That's why it's called Ireland.

    Americans would rather hire Irish bartenders and waitresses because Americans would rather look at pure Irish faces than white American mystery meat. Americans would rather listen to an Irish voice than their own harsh accents and dull conversation. Ethnic interbreeding has physically deformed Americans into gormless and indistinct lumps even among those of some Irish descent. Only among the purest Irish-Americans like Tom Brady and Kathy Ireland can you still see true Irish faces. Just as interbreeding has damaged the DNA of Americans, it has robbed them of the culture of their ancestors. This is why they are split and divided, and have no true culture of their own. They listen to whatever black musicians their Jewish cultural arbiters tell them to listen to.

    "The failed pronunciamiento of 1936 set loose a violent onslaught on those that revolutionaries in the Republican zone identified as enemies; "where the rebellion failed, for several months afterwards merely to be identified as a priest, a religious or simply a militant Christian or member of some apostolic or pious organization, was enough for a person to be executed without trial"."

    Scotland does have its pale imitation of the IRA - there are various small Scottish Republican groups who model themselves on their Irish counterparts, have the odd parade with berets and dark glasses, and campaign against "White Settlers" in Scotland i.e. English. As far as I know they're also cool about Scotland being open to anyone and everyone else.

  102. The Death of Catholic Ireland and the birth of all … the people like Nguyen in Ireland, see also the Nigerians, is related to feminism.

    What feminism really is, at heart, is wealthy Upper Class White women and their younger, unmarried, carousel riding followers complaining about the men in their lives. Not sexy enough, not commitment enough (if sexy), etc. Thus they endlessly try to divide men into the Alpha Winners and Beta Male losers by flooding the country with foreigners. On the theory that only true Alphas will be successful there. Toss all the men into the sea and the Alphas are the ones not drowning.

    That’s pretty much it. You can draw a direct correlation between mass Third World immigration and the position of and influence by, Upper Class White women. Places that are wealthy but have restricted influence of Upper Class White women like Switzerland have less immigration than say, less wealthy but more feminist nations like Sweden. Or Canada.

    Lesson: White men have an eternal enemy — their women. Who have to be relentlessly kept in line, by social and charismatic means, more than anything else. Nothing, not technology, not military power, not wealth, is as important as keeping women in line so they don’t go haywire in a feedback loop of endlessly status-whoring and fame-whoring and anti-White “get the Beta Male out” stuff.

    Women who are White mens equals are nothing more and less than their enemy. Since they despise men who are equal to them and want only those superior and dominant around them.

There are a few groups like the blacks brought to the U.S. and the American Indians & Inuits & Polynesians who weren’t given a choice as to how much exposure to white people they were going to experience. But essentially every non-white person in Europe and every non-white person who arrived in the U.S. post-1865 *chose* to be here. Europe & America aren’t North Korea, you can “vote with your feet” anytime you like. Before you do that I highly recommend that you compare the average per capita income of your group (and rights & freedoms) in the respective white-nation to the second-highest average per capita income of your group in whatever nonwhite country that is.

    Attention all whiny minorities, please repeat after me: “I am probably alive because of diseases cured, vaccines, antibiotics and sanitation measures, e.g. sewers, invented by white people. Almost everything that I enjoy in life was invented by a white person to include essentially everything powered by electricity, all forms of modern communication, transportation and entertainment. Thank you, Almighty God, for Western Civilization, the most dynamic, creative, inventive and productive civilization the world has ever known. Amen.”

    No, white people didn’t invent everything. Thank you, ancient Sumerians, for inventing the prototype of the phonetic alphabet; an extremely important development.

Grabbing a serape and drinking away Cinco de Mayo as the Frito Bandito, for example. Colored people want us to NOTICE. They have very deep insecurities – all work of devilish honkies – and need constant encouragement that their egos, hyperinflated by our crappy media, really are world-shaking engines of scientific potential and creative kickbuttitude. Deep down, they know they don’t deserve this absurd self-regard. However, whitey’s willingness to ‘play the game’ and crawl before them momentarily puffs the delusion to life.

    It would be more healthy if colored folk stopped being so obsessed with white people. But since we’re cursed to live among them, regardless how many social firewalls we by necessity and safety sling up, that sea change nearly is impossible.

    At the risk of coming across as whiny, I'll do my best to summarize what I think the root of the problem is being born half Asian.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc... Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn't mean crap - it's what other people identify you as that really counts. And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    Mixed-race globo people like Nguyen have no fixed identity or place. Their idea of culture is rap thug culture, pornography, hollywood, celebrity mania, and comics.

    I'm sure Nguyen considers himself a 'global citizen', a preening and arrogant sense of neo-imperialist privilege and entitlement that says every nation belongs to him. He is the sort to go to Armenia and accuse Armenians of 'Armenian privilege'. In other words, Armenia and its history, culture, and territory have no special meaning to Armenians. They belong just as much to some mixed-race half-Viet turd whose idea of culture is rappers calling each other the n-word, singing about biatches, and wearing dumb blings. That is his message to the entire world, to each and every nation. He is a useful idiot trying to turn every nation into a colony of Hollywood and MTV.

    He's a globalist cultural-imperialist who only cares about American gangsta rap culture and Hollywood and celebrity skank culture.
    Just look at his tumblr site.

    He knows or cares nothing of Vietnamese history or culture, or Irish history and culture. For the likes of him, every nation exists so that trashy vulgar globo-idiots can go there feeling 'your nation belongs to me'. He thinks he is better than other people because his culture consists of ugly rap and worship of homos funded by Wall Street and Las Vegas.

    He doesn't travel around the world with respect for other cultures. He doesn't feel that Russia has special meaning for Russians, Hungary has special meaning for Hungarians, Japan has special meaning for Japanese.
    He thinks he is hipper and cooler and better than rest of humanity because he's an agent of trashy American cultural imperialism that flows out of the sewage of Hollywood, MTV, and Comicon. He thinks Ireland should be just another Los Angeles.

    Instead of trying to learn about other peoples and histories and lands, he sees every land as just some DJ-station for rappers and whores who imitate pornified American culture.

    He is a globalist and, as such, an imperialist. His attitude to every people is YOUR NATION ISN'T YOURS. YOUR CULTURE ISN'T YOURS. YOUR HISTORY ISN'T YOURS. IF YOU THINK THEY ARE, YOU ARE INTO 'PRIVILEGE'. YOUR NATION IS MY NATION, AND IT IS MY RIGHT TO GO TO YOUR NATION AND SPREAD RAP CULTURE AS THE MAIN CULTURE, AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, YOU ARE A 'RACIST'.

    Thankfully, not all Viets are total idiots.

    The author of The Sympathizer and Nothing Ever Dies, Viet Thanh Nguyen, seems to be thoughtful. He may be a liberal, but he's a thinking liberal with a sense of ambiguity and irony.

    But this half-Irish and half-Viet globalist promoter of rap culture is just trash.
    He is globalist flotsam that floats with rest of the cultural sewer.

    Pay attention to the other Nguyen who cares about culture and history, their limitations but also their necessities. It is one thing to say one should recognize humanity beyond one's own race and nation. But it's another to say that one's nation doesn't belong to one's people. That's the sort of garbage peddled by American neo-imperialism whose attitude is "inside every g**k is an American trying to come out." To Dean Nguyen, Irish are just globo-pod people whose purpose is to turn into ersatz consumer-Americans addicted to rap trash.

In barely a generation the Irish have transformed from a people who were famous for being brave and pious to generic euro trash. They’re like zombies with no higher purpose beyond eating, drinking and cumming. They’re no different or better than the English. Both peoples are giving away their countries to economic refugees as quickly as they can.

    It's a legacy of it being very much an anti-colonist Marxist liberation entity. Traditional style right-wing nationalism in Ireland was always suppressed by Sinn Fein. During the 70s they went out and physically beat the early National Front types. The provos had guns, the NFs had clubs...

    It's a tension in the party itself, as with the SNP in Scotland. Eventually they will have to face it and either the party fracture or adopt anti-immigration stances.

    There is, of course, no contradiction, to either their nationalism or socialism, but it's a question of aesthetics, which much of political ideology eventually boils down to. Being gruffly anti-immigrant isn't 'who they are', no matter how much it is very much who their core supporters are, particularly in the Republic. Same goes for the SNP.

    It's an interesting dimension to Ireland that it has no serious anti-immigration party. As would an independent Scotland.

    Alti,

    You are completely historically correct regarding the antipathy that Sinn Fein has against traditional style right-wing nationalism. As you correctly point out, physical intimidation accounts for the fact, as opposed to other European countries, that no virile anti-immigration movement has been permitted to arise in the Irish Republic.

    I guess old traditions die hard – the IRA ambushed Blueshirts on their way to fight for Franco in the 30s, and supported people who murdered Catholics just for being Catholics.

    “The failed pronunciamiento of 1936 set loose a violent onslaught on those that revolutionaries in the Republican zone identified as enemies; “where the rebellion failed, for several months afterwards merely to be identified as a priest, a religious or simply a militant Christian or member of some apostolic or pious organization, was enough for a person to be executed without trial”.”

    Scotland does have its pale imitation of the IRA – there are various small Scottish Republican groups who model themselves on their Irish counterparts, have the odd parade with berets and dark glasses, and campaign against “White Settlers” in Scotland i.e. English. As far as I know they’re also cool about Scotland being open to anyone and everyone else.

They’re are easy to spot because of their long, ugly noses, bulging eyes, weak chins, and their toothy and misshapen horse faced heads. And also because of the predilections that they have for homosexuality and pedophilia. The English always have and always will be a foreign pathogen rotting and corrupting the strength of the Irish people. Gaeilge is the pure language of Ireland. Catholicism is the only true Christian, not some filthy protestant heresy started by an uxocidal pagan king. The English will burn in hell for leaving the true faith, much less for their ancestral crimes against the Irish people. Ireland is for the pure Celtic, Irish people and only the Irish people. That’s why it’s called Ireland.

Without trying to get too technical about who counts as white or Christian, I imagine that most "white Christians" would have been viewed as "something different" in Ireland, if not even to this day.

    I quite enjoyed this article. I have no sympathy for the Irish, who are leftists to the core and spend a lot of their time dumping on Trump and butting their freckled noses into the American election. They are very loud and aggressive supporters of amnesty and drivers licenses for Irish illegal immigrants who come here to fill vital bartending jobs that Americans apparently won't do. They attack and abuse Americans who disagree with them as xenophobes and they tell you with a straight face that America was stolen and that we have no right to assert authority over our borders.

    I wish them nothing but the worst.

    Americans would rather hire Irish bartenders and waitresses because Americans would rather look at pure Irish faces than white American mystery meat. Americans would rather listen to an Irish voice than their own harsh accents and dull conversation. Ethnic interbreeding has physically deformed Americans into gormless and indistinct lumps even among those of some Irish descent. Only among the purest Irish-Americans like Tom Brady and Kathy Ireland can you still see true Irish faces. Just as interbreeding has damaged the DNA of Americans, it has robbed them of the culture of their ancestors. This is why they are split and divided, and have no true culture of their own. They listen to whatever black musicians their Jewish cultural arbiters tell them to listen to.

    An old man once said to me: "The Irish would blow up another White man with a car bomb for using the wrong prayer book but now they let n*****s take over Derry for fear of being called racist!"

    Americans basically spent the 20th century battling various forms of socialism, defending the essential character of the nation. It’s insane they would just roll over for Cultural Marxism.

    Dumb idiot.

    Ironically, his PC crap was planted in his mind by privileged globalist whites into virtue-signaling.

    Virtue-signaling is white globalist privilege.

    Ireland belonging to Irish is not privilege. It's like a man owning his own body. A man and his body are one. A people and their nation are one.

    When Brits were in Ireland and bossed around the Irish, that was privilege.
    Brits being masters of Britain is fine. But Brits being masters of Ireland is privilege.

    French ruling over France is not privilege. It is national right. French ruling over Vietnam is privilege.

    Likewise, Vietnamese ruling over Vietnam is not privilege. Vietnam ruling over Cambodia is privilege.

    This Nguyen is a globalist-imperialist. He says the people of a nation don't have a sacred bond and right to that nation. That nation belongs to the world. It is imperialist talk. It's like the French saying the Viets have no special claim on Vietnam.

    "Where are you from" is a staple of just-met-you small talk, second only to "what do you do?" How have you missed this fact?

    I lived in Colorado in the ’80s, and the “where are you from” question was a typical conversational starting point. It wasn’t until I moved to NYC where the question became one of genealogical heritage and ethnic origin. As an American, I found it off-putting (but certainly not rude), as the questioner usually wanted to brag on their ethnic pride as some mark of accomplishment or superiority (or something). I never understood what the who-ha was all about–heritage was not something I had any direct control over….

    The Death of Catholic Ireland and the birth of all ... the people like Nguyen in Ireland, see also the Nigerians, is related to feminism.

    What feminism really is, at heart, is wealthy Upper Class White women and their younger, unmarried, carousel riding followers complaining about the men in their lives. Not sexy enough, not commitment enough (if sexy), etc. Thus they endlessly try to divide men into the Alpha Winners and Beta Male losers by flooding the country with foreigners. On the theory that only true Alphas will be successful there. Toss all the men into the sea and the Alphas are the ones not drowning.

    That's pretty much it. You can draw a direct correlation between mass Third World immigration and the position of and influence by, Upper Class White women. Places that are wealthy but have restricted influence of Upper Class White women like Switzerland have less immigration than say, less wealthy but more feminist nations like Sweden. Or Canada.

    Lesson: White men have an eternal enemy -- their women. Who have to be relentlessly kept in line, by social and charismatic means, more than anything else. Nothing, not technology, not military power, not wealth, is as important as keeping women in line so they don't go haywire in a feedback loop of endlessly status-whoring and fame-whoring and anti-White "get the Beta Male out" stuff.

    Women who are White mens equals are nothing more and less than their enemy. Since they despise men who are equal to them and want only those superior and dominant around them.

    In the old male-run Catholic Ireland, this Nguyen guy would have been shoved out of Ireland quick by men ticked off and ready to show him what real "racism" can look like.

    At the risk of coming across as whiny, I'll do my best to summarize what I think the root of the problem is being born half Asian.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc... Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn't mean crap - it's what other people identify you as that really counts. And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    I once got called out on my racial hypersensitivity (like being offended by the "where are you from?" question): It was put to me this way: you think you are white and you absolutely hate it whenever someone reminds you that you aren't.

    This post reminds me of the tragic mulatto.

    The tragic mulatto is a stereotypical fictional character that appeared in American literature during the 19th and 20th centuries, from the 1840s. The “tragic mulatto” is an archetypical mixed-race person (a “mulatto”), who is assumed to be sad, or even suicidal, because they fail to completely fit in the “white world” or the “black world”.

  140. There is a notion that the global nonwhite norm is utopian equilibrium. Witness the Family Guy illustration of the first meeting between blacks and whites (“Would you like to be equals?”). In fact norm is tribalism, supported by instinctive conspiracy theory, itself borne out by the constant cutthroat competition of clan against clan. This forces the most innocent participant to plot and nepotize just to survive. They really are all together against tribe Y, because tribe Y is so arrayed against tribe X.
    Thus this baseless grousing is actually how normal earthlings talk. and the normal response is to either ignore it or to enter into a meaningless contest of listing long-rememberrd minor grievances. Only gullible, empathic whites look at this as a problem to permanently solve, especially when nobody else wants it solved.
    That said,
    There is nothing more disgusting than weak East Asians, who have been handed everything, who are sincerely beloved by white society, and who would not last four minutes in an African world, and who in Malaysia react to racist anti-Chinese pogroms by attempting to bribe the rioters (who are happy to take their money and then kill them anyway), attacking the whites who are their natural friends and enabling nonwhites who want to watch them become immolated.

    Irish see themselves as the white People-of-Color because of the history of rule under British. They are the white blacks, white browns, white etc. Consider the whole U2 act.
    Brits imitated black music out of fun. Irish did it out of fun and moral inspiration. They see their national struggle as a kind of civil rights movement.

    This leftist tilt makes the Irish vulnerable to the reigning leftist ideology around the world, and of course, US leftism defines global leftism. So, if the current 'leftism' is all about diversity, multi-culturalism, and homosexuality, Irish go along. First nation to vote 'marriage' for homos by majority. Irish don't have a mind of their own.

    Irish were once geographically colonized.. Now they are mentally colonized. They seem blind to the fact that current 'leftism' has become the tool of the globalists who seek to undermine the national sovereignty and integrity of all nations... except Israel.

    I sometimes wonder... what was the point of giving Ireland back to the Irish when the Irish hand their nation over to the globalist empire that seeks to turn every nation into LA?

    It's like giving back the money you stole to the original owner... only to see him gamble it all away at the local casino.

    It seems British Imperialism did more for Irish nationalism(like Soviet imperialism did more for Poland and Hungary) than Irish liberation did. Liberated Irish have decided to whore themselves out to Hollywood, MTV, and PC.

    Anyway, regardless of the history, it seems every Western white nation is under the spell of toxic PC. Sweden wasn't under the imperialist rule of any nation, but it's going the same way. (Only Eastern European nations are relatively free of this venomous PC.) It seems there is something about PC that paralyzes white rationality in every white nation regardless of their history as oppressor or oppressed. Germany, Ireland, Sweden, or Greece... all headed toward the same cliff.
    PC takes over the elites of every nation, and these cuck-elites use media and academia to spread suicidal idiocy among the populace.

    For Germans, PC orders them according to guilt. They must atone.
    For Irish, PC orders them according to pride. Since Irish are the 'other blacks', they must side with People of Color against whites.

    So, either out of moral shame or moral pride, whites must reject whiteness.

  149. They want to tell the inhabitants of a country that is nearly 100% ethnically homogeneous, with no history of slavery or colonialism, and which for centuries got the short end of the stick in its interaction with its more powerful neighbour – that they are “privileged” over the handful of people of other races who have chosen – yes, chosen – to live there.

    That's nonsense. Most Asians aren't even aware of the whole "SJW" phenomenon because they are busy working and raising families. And since they are neither culturally nor politically a monolithic bloc like blacks, they don't see why they need to disavow some weirdo just because he happens to be "Asian" whatever originating from the same giant and diverse continent means. Must Norwegians go around apologizing for English soccer hooligans, let alone Albanian gangsters?

    At the end of the day, the desired audience of SJW, be they white or Asian, is almost always whites.

    Also, there is really no "Asia community." There are some places of high degrees of Asian population concentration in the U.S., and of coure immigrant communities tend to retain some social cohesion among the first generation, but the overall residential pattern is that Asians in American tend to live intermixed with other ethnic groups, usually whites... unlike blacks and Hispanics.

That's why it's called Ireland.

It's like how the body mistakes lead for calcium and tries to process it in the same way and becomes sick as are result.

    The English can sometimes pass and intermarry with the Irish and influence Irish society but they are a poison to Irish culture and to the pure, Celtic genetic stock of Ireland. Anyone can see that Anglos are darker, smaller in stature and generally less attractive than the Irish. This is because they themselves are a mud people who are the result of constant conquest and invasion going back to Roman times and continuing into their invasion and colonization of brown people. The Anglo DNA stock is thereby composed of the detritus of Europe and to a smaller extent of the world.

    In terms of their actions, time and time again they have proven themselves to be duplicitous, covetous and untrustworthy. Everywhere the English have gone they have brought chaos and decay first physically by invasion and colonization and now culturally in the form of black/Anglo/Jewish music and culture. What does England export anymore beyond it's filthy and disgusting culture? They are a poisonous and degenerate people. This is why I support a program of negative eugenics to gradually eradicate Anglo DNA from Ireland.

    Americans would rather hire Irish bartenders and waitresses because Americans would rather look at pure Irish faces than white American mystery meat. Americans would rather listen to an Irish voice than their own harsh accents and dull conversation. Ethnic interbreeding has physically deformed Americans into gormless and indistinct lumps even among those of some Irish descent. Only among the purest Irish-Americans like Tom Brady and Kathy Ireland can you still see true Irish faces. Just as interbreeding has damaged the DNA of Americans, it has robbed them of the culture of their ancestors. This is why they are split and divided, and have no true culture of their own. They listen to whatever black musicians their Jewish cultural arbiters tell them to listen to.

    That's a fair point. I should say that these people are phenotypically Irish even if their genotype is not 100% pure. So phenotypically I would say that Tom Brady is a typical man of Connacht. Kathy Ireland looks a lot like a Munster woman where as Grace Kelly and former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney had the faces you'd normally see in Donegal. There are different Irish types and it's not uncommon that they occur even in the same family, but these are definitely faces and features that are distinct to Ireland.

    American mystery meat on the other hand is just a blurring, softening and rounding off of features from different European countries. They've lost the physical attributes that nature took thousands of years to develop in their ancestors in the same way that they have lost the culture and history of their ancestors. They've traded their genetic and cultural heritage for money and a mish mash of ready made Anglo/Jewish cultural inventions. It's very sad.

    This leftist tilt makes the Irish vulnerable to the reigning leftist ideology around the world, and of course, US leftism defines global leftism. So, if the current ‘leftism’ is all about diversity, multi-culturalism, and homosexuality, Irish go along. First nation to vote ‘marriage’ for homos by majority. Irish don’t have a mind of their own.

    Irish were once geographically colonized.. Now they are mentally colonized. They seem blind to the fact that current ‘leftism’ has become the tool of the globalists who seek to undermine the national sovereignty and integrity of all nations… except Israel.

    I sometimes wonder… what was the point of giving Ireland back to the Irish when the Irish hand their nation over to the globalist empire that seeks to turn every nation into LA?

    It’s like giving back the money you stole to the original owner… only to see him gamble it all away at the local casino.

    It seems British Imperialism did more for Irish nationalism(like Soviet imperialism did more for Poland and Hungary) than Irish liberation did. Liberated Irish have decided to whore themselves out to Hollywood, MTV, and PC.

    Anyway, regardless of the history, it seems every Western white nation is under the spell of toxic PC. Sweden wasn’t under the imperialist rule of any nation, but it’s going the same way. (Only Eastern European nations are relatively free of this venomous PC.) It seems there is something about PC that paralyzes white rationality in every white nation regardless of their history as oppressor or oppressed. Germany, Ireland, Sweden, or Greece… all headed toward the same cliff.
    PC takes over the elites of every nation, and these cuck-elites use media and academia to spread suicidal idiocy among the populace.

    For Germans, PC orders them according to guilt. They must atone.
    For Irish, PC orders them according to pride. Since Irish are the ‘other blacks’, they must side with People of Color against whites.

    So, either out of moral shame or moral pride, whites must reject whiteness.

    Amerasian children faced prejudice in Vietnam sometimes referred to as bui doi (“the dust of life” or “trash”)

    But applying that term 'racism' to the Vietnamese situation misses the point. Vietnamese hostility isn't premised on feelings of racial supremacy but sense of national humiliation and betrayal. The fact is Saigon was turned into one giant whorehouse and just about the only occupation for many women were to whore out to American men or serve as mistresses.
    Also, Americans treated the women as whores and didn't care about kids that might result from their exploits. They just conveniently walked away.

    Imagine an American town turned into a war zone occupied by, say, Iranians or Chinese for 8 yrs and many of the local women are turned into whores who readily service the occupying force who are killing so many American boys.
    How would Americans feel about the kids resulting from these relations?
    The Christian thing would be to understand that the kids had no say in any of this and treat them fair. But the human heart isn't always rational or fair, especially after one's community has been totally ravaged by war that killed countless people.

    Likewise, I think the French reaction to women accused of horizontal collaboration went way too far, BUT the anger was understandable. France was defeated and humiliated but these women went with German occupiers.

    After all, isn't Alt Right partially fired up by sexual politics? Alt Right's rage against NFL has to do with a sense of racial-sexual occupation: Blacks have taken over sports, once the grand domain of white male pride.

    The expression “white privilege” has been around for years

    Since 1835, according to google ngram, though becoming a fad around 1990.

    Nobody has ever told me to go back to my own country or denied my right to identify as an Irish person. No stranger has ever targeted me with a racial slur.

    Gosh! Depriving the author of experiencing racial discrimination is horrible! Now he has to make up stuff! All because those white Irish people are horrible people because they're white, which is a really horrible thing to be.

    I inadvertently benefit from white privilege; except, of course, online when my foreign-sounding surname means it’s open season.

    Oh, my! Then what happens? Vietnamese in Viet Nam picking on him for "acting white"?

    “Nobody has ever told me to go back to my own country or denied my right to identify as an Irish person. No stranger has ever targeted me with a racial slur.”

    Gosh! Depriving the author of experiencing racial discrimination is horrible! Now he has to make up stuff! All because those white Irish people are horrible people because they’re white, which is a really horrible thing to be.

    This is the essence of it. The author is not whining because he’s rejected by the Irish for being a mixed-race man — he tacitily admits he’s pretty much fully accepted. He’s whining because he’s not getting enough tasty, gratifying blowback to feel that he’s a legitimate victim of racism.

    He’s desperate to be an ‘authentic’ victim so he can reap all the rewards given such victims by contemporary western cultures — hence the page full of rap wannabe links. He is therefore more like Rachel Dolezal or Shaun King, not a ‘tragic mulatto’.

    Indeed.

    Some of the responses on this blog are predictable. A half-white (and half-Asian) man who looks mostly white and has lived a mostly (entirely?) white life goes into the full "victim of color" mode, and it's non-white this, non-white that. There is this contingent here that just desperately wants all (real) non-whites to be hostile, so they can justify their views.

    At the end of the day, it's a very nihilistic view, and not as self-serving as they might imagine.

    Dean Van Nguyen? Is he Dutch?
     
    Lol. A Vietnamese-Australian drug smuggler called Van Nguyen was hanged by Singapore about ten years ago. I'm guessing the Van and the Nguyen are two parts of one name in Vietnamese.

    Van is a Sino-Vietnamese word (i.e. borrowed from Chinese) and broadly means letters, culture etc.

    It has throughout history been a very popular component of given names among the educated classes in Vietnam (and of course among those aspiring to education). One recalls, for instance, former South Vietnamese president Nguyen Van Thieu.

    NOTE: Nguyen is technically the surname (clan name), but given names alone are used even in relatively formal contexts due to the paucity of distinct surnames in Vietnamese.

    We see a similar phenomenon in the US, especially with blacks.

    I look as Aryan as they come and I, like everyone else, have been treated poorly in many ways by many people in many different social situations. As a rule, I attribute this to the character of the individual in question, not to my phenotype. And sometimes I also recognize that my behavior prior to the poor treatment may have been less than exemplary and thus contributed to a poor reaction. Even when blacks or Aztecs treat me unjustly poorly, I recognize that they probably treat everyone like shit.

    But many, many blacks attribute any poor treatment by a white person to racial prejudice. And of course this is the only permissible view according to PC orthodoxy. It is not PC to tell a person of melanin that they may have perceived racial prejudice when there was none.

Japan allows zero immigration and still treats their “untouchable” Korean minority who do all their dirty work as garbage collectors and butchers as dirt. The rest of Asia isn’t much better and no country in that part of the world would ever thing of concepts like diversity or multiculturalism. Don’t forget that Chinese built the biggest wall in history to keep out migrant invaders. Why Ireland with its population of less than 6 million feels any obligation to flood itself with millions of 3rd worlders and Muslims is beyond comprehension. Their country could be a suburb of any big city in China, India, and other places in the 3rd world so why do they have to become the 3rd world and the indigenous people of Ireland strangers in their own country? Like Sweden Ireland is destroying itself by open borders. One of the biggest promoters of a multicultural Eire is a man named Alan Shatter. Look him up on Google. Keep in mind it wasn’t that long ago that the IRA were trying to throw the British out of Ulster and now former IRA Gerry Adams promotes 3rd world and Muslim migration to his country. Imagine a Muslim dominated Eire. That probably will happen by the year 2040. Where is there a modern St. Patrick to drive the snakes out of Ireland again?

    The lovely Anni-Frid of Abba was the child of a German soldier and a Norwegian mother, who had to leave Norway for Sweden.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anni-Frid_Lyngstad#Early_life

    "In early 1947, Lyngstad, her mother, and her maternal grandmother, Arntine Lyngstad ("Agny"), left her birthplace, fearing reprisals against those who had dealings with the Germans during the occupation. This could entail not just insults and threats, but also forced separation of infants from their parents and relatives. Lyngstad was taken by her grandmother to Sweden ... Lyngstad believed that her father, Alfred Haase, had died during the war on his way back to Germany as his ship was reported to have sunk. However, in 1977, the German teen magazine Bravo published a poster and a complete biography with details of Lyngstad's background, including the names of her father and mother. It was seen by Lyngstad's half-brother, Peter Haase, who went to his father and asked him if he had been in Ballangen during the war. A few months later, Lyngstad met Haase in Stockholm for the first time"

When I first saw the headline, I rolled my eyes just like everyone else, said to myself “Not again!”, and skipped right to the comments, where I found something more interesting might be going on. “Not again” is the wrong response because this is the first commentary on race I’ve ever encountered by a half Asian person who can and basically does pass as white. So I went back to read it.

    Pretty mild stuff, I have to say, especially from someone known to imbibe deeply in American culture. It’s even true. We only disagree on whether the phenomenon described is a problem, not whether it exists. But for his personal description, this opinion could’ve been written by a full-blooded Irishman or Irishwoman (the latter being perhaps more likely).

    And why not? The guy is as white as he is Asian by ancestry. By looks, upbringing, and socialization, he is more white than Asian, right down to his obsession with gangsta rap. The typical Asian SJW does not, and cannot, critique “white privilege” from the point of view of a beneficiary. While it’s always hard to untangle someone’s motives, you could do worse in this case than think of a white American who shows up at BLM rallies. Ironically, by focusing on his (half) Asian-ness, you guys are in fact proving his point.

    Historical illiterate!!!

    the idea of Ireland as actually separate from the rest of the British isles is a 20th century fantasy.
    the northern Scots in NI are the one of the more recent manifestation of the cross pollination between the big and smaller island. History is rife with attacks by one side of the water on the other. Remember the Scots are losers in Irish tribal conflicts, and St Patrick was a British captive from a Irish slave raid on post roman Britain.

    There has been so much cross pollination throughout history and pre-history, that when you exclude the viking settled areas on England and Scotland's east coat, there is no genetic variation between Great Britain and Ireland. Maybe in the deep analysis there is but the commercial tests we get here in the US don't differentiate. Even the viking settled areas are still 50--60% British isles stock.

    As for the Gaelic cultural argument, the rise of English education and the drain off of the most combative types to Appalachia and Australia, finally crafted a English speaking, and thinking majority, arguably more integrated in the wider English speaking world than Scots or Welsh just in time to lose their political ties to the same. My understanding from the Irish i used to work with is the Gaelic culture only exists in a few tiny villages in the west.

    Australia-the world’s second most Irish country-has never been particularly Gaelic.

    There are a few groups like the blacks brought to the U.S. and the American Indians & Inuits & Polynesians who weren't given a choice as to how much exposure to white people they were going to experience. But essentially every non-white person in Europe and every non-white person who arrived in the U.S. post-1865 *chose* to be here. Europe & America aren't North Korea, you can "vote with your feet" anytime you like. Before you do that I highly recommend that you compare the average per capita income of your group (and rights & freedoms) in the respective white-nation to the second-highest average per capita income of your group in whatever nonwhite country that is.

    Attention all whiny minorities, please repeat after me: "I am probably alive because of diseases cured, vaccines, antibiotics and sanitation measures, e.g. sewers, invented by white people. Almost everything that I enjoy in life was invented by a white person to include essentially everything powered by electricity, all forms of modern communication, transportation and entertainment.

    "Want to see REAL RACISM? Try Vietnam, specifically racism against children of Vietnamese mothers (some of them prostitutes) and U.S. servicemen."

    As those children didn't choose their parents, it is a very sad story. It's like that Clash song in Combat Rock.

    https://youtu.be/sg-pL5KCuSk

    But applying that term 'racism' to the Vietnamese situation misses the point. Vietnamese hostility isn't premised on feelings of racial supremacy but sense of national humiliation and betrayal. The fact is Saigon was turned into one giant whorehouse and just about the only occupation for many women were to whore out to American men or serve as mistresses.
    Also, Americans treated the women as whores and didn't care about kids that might result from their exploits. They just conveniently walked away.

    Imagine an American town turned into a war zone occupied by, say, Iranians or Chinese for 8 yrs and many of the local women are turned into whores who readily service the occupying force who are killing so many American boys.
    How would Americans feel about the kids resulting from these relations?
    The Christian thing would be to understand that the kids had no say in any of this and treat them fair. But the human heart isn't always rational or fair, especially after one's community has been totally ravaged by war that killed countless people.

    Likewise, I think the French reaction to women accused of horizontal collaboration went way too far, BUT the anger was understandable. France was defeated and humiliated but these women went with German occupiers.

    After all, isn't Alt Right partially fired up by sexual politics? Alt Right's rage against NFL has to do with a sense of racial-sexual occupation: Blacks have taken over sports, once the grand domain of white male pride. Blacks now win, they dominate, and they take white women and produce mulatto children who identify as black and spit on whites. Colin Kaepernick.

    So, the Alt Right's rage at cucks and mulattos is rather like Vietnamese hostility to mixed raced kids. It is a reaction to a sense of racial defeat and humiliation, which is why 'Paul Kersey' of SBPDL vowed no longer to watch college football.

    But I think Viets should be more understanding cuz those kids are innocent, and their mothers prolly turned to prostitution out of need than enthusiasm.. like in the Oliver Stone movie Heaven and Earth.

    The lovely Anni-Frid of Abba was the child of a German soldier and a Norwegian mother, who had to leave Norway for Sweden.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anni-Frid_Lyngstad#Early_life

    “In early 1947, Lyngstad, her mother, and her maternal grandmother, Arntine Lyngstad (“Agny”), left her birthplace, fearing reprisals against those who had dealings with the Germans during the occupation. This could entail not just insults and threats, but also forced separation of infants from their parents and relatives. Lyngstad was taken by her grandmother to Sweden … Lyngstad believed that her father, Alfred Haase, had died during the war on his way back to Germany as his ship was reported to have sunk. However, in 1977, the German teen magazine Bravo published a poster and a complete biography with details of Lyngstad’s background, including the names of her father and mother. It was seen by Lyngstad’s half-brother, Peter Haase, who went to his father and asked him if he had been in Ballangen during the war. A few months later, Lyngstad met Haase in Stockholm for the first time”

    I've got to disagree with everybody here. When I first saw the headline, I rolled my eyes just like everyone else, said to myself "Not again!", and skipped right to the comments, where I found something more interesting might be going on. "Not again" is the wrong response because this is the first commentary on race I've ever encountered by a half Asian person who can and basically does pass as white. So I went back to read it.

    Pretty mild stuff, I have to say, especially from someone known to imbibe deeply in American culture. It's even true. We only disagree on whether the phenomenon described is a problem, not whether it exists. But for his personal description, this opinion could've been written by a full-blooded Irishman or Irishwoman (the latter being perhaps more likely).

    And why not? The guy is as white as he is Asian by ancestry. By looks, upbringing, and socialization, he is more white than Asian, right down to his obsession with gangsta rap. The typical Asian SJW does not, and cannot, critique "white privilege" from the point of view of a beneficiary. While it's always hard to untangle someone's motives, you could do worse in this case than think of a white American who shows up at BLM rallies. Ironically, by focusing on his (half) Asian-ness, you guys are in fact proving his point.

    “Ironically, by focusing on his (half) Asian-ness, you guys are in fact proving his point.”

    He was the one who brought it up, therefore it is fair game. In fact, it’s central to his entire argument.

    It would be different if he was in a conversation and was out-of-the-blue asked “so, where are you originally from?”, or something even more pointed. At least that’s always been my take on discussion of my own ancestry. As long as I’m the one who first broached the subject, any follow-up questions are fair game.

    ---How can a Vietnamese have the “right” to identify as “Irish”? Only the Irish people have this right. And only they can grant the privilege to non-Irish – if they feel like it.---

    Irish see themselves as the white People-of-Color because of the history of rule under British. They are the white blacks, white browns, white etc. Consider the whole U2 act.
    Brits imitated black music out of fun. Irish did it out of fun and moral inspiration. They see their national struggle as a kind of civil rights movement.

    This leftist tilt makes the Irish vulnerable to the reigning leftist ideology around the world, and of course, US leftism defines global leftism. So, if the current 'leftism' is all about diversity, multi-culturalism, and homosexuality, Irish go along. First nation to vote 'marriage' for homos by majority. Irish don't have a mind of their own.

    Irish were once geographically colonized.. Now they are mentally colonized. They seem blind to the fact that current 'leftism' has become the tool of the globalists who seek to undermine the national sovereignty and integrity of all nations... except Israel.

    I sometimes wonder... what was the point of giving Ireland back to the Irish when the Irish hand their nation over to the globalist empire that seeks to turn every nation into LA?

    It's like giving back the money you stole to the original owner... only to see him gamble it all away at the local casino.

    It seems British Imperialism did more for Irish nationalism(like Soviet imperialism did more for Poland and Hungary) than Irish liberation did. Liberated Irish have decided to whore themselves out to Hollywood, MTV, and PC.

    Anyway, regardless of the history, it seems every Western white nation is under the spell of toxic PC. Sweden wasn't under the imperialist rule of any nation, but it's going the same way. (Only Eastern European nations are relatively free of this venomous PC.) It seems there is something about PC that paralyzes white rationality in every white nation regardless of their history as oppressor or oppressed. Germany, Ireland, Sweden, or Greece... all headed toward the same cliff.
    PC takes over the elites of every nation, and these cuck-elites use media and academia to spread suicidal idiocy among the populace.

    For Germans, PC orders them according to guilt. They must atone.
    For Irish, PC orders them according to pride. Since Irish are the 'other blacks', they must side with People of Color against whites.

    So, either out of moral shame or moral pride, whites must reject whiteness.

    Yes, possible.

    My parents' families go back at least a thousand years in East Asia. That's just the recorded history. They likely have a very ancient history in the region. On Razib Khan's blog, I mentioned that I have an auburn tinge to my facial hair, and someone helpfully mentioned that the genes responsible for that color variation likely originate from ancient Altaic Neanderthal mix. My mother had full auburn hair that she dyed as a young person because she was teased as a child (in East Asia).

    My wife's ancestry is English, German, and Swedish. She has bright blue-green eyes with streakes of gold.

    Our children have several different eye colors - from amber to green. Same thing with hair colors. My oldest has light brown hair, but his roots are blonde, even now. Some of my children have auburn hair, brighter than even my mother's.

    There is actually subtle, but wide variations in hair and eye colors (and other physical traits) in East Asia, based on recessive genes. Obviously the variations are not as readily noticeable and striking as that amongst Northern Europeans, but they are there. And when those genes interact with Northern European genes, they come out to party!

    Irish control over Ireland is wrong.. but globalist domination and colonization of Ireland is ‘progressive’. And what do Irish get out of this? Their kids are raised to worship rappers and welcome demographic displacement.

    The most clever thing about globalism is it masks its neo-imperialist domination with ‘progressive’ conceit of resistance to power.

    Since blackness = justice whereas whiteness = privilege, globalist imperialism is morally justified because it spreads black rap on every nation(even though rap is about thug domination and arrogance).

    Rap is perfect representation of globalist imperialism.

    Rapper is all about thug culture. He is a bully, gangsta, pig, and crass materialist. He celebrates raw power and intimidation over others. Rap culture is about being above the law and the middle finger to all moral norms.
    Yet, because of American history of past discrimination, even the slimiest rapper poses as a rebel against injustice. He plays robbin’ hood even though his ilk have ruined black communities and others as well.

    Globalist elites are, of course, different from rappers. They go to fine schools and are refined. But their worldview of rapper-like in that they love to plunder, loot, pillage, warmonger, and bullshi* their way to dominance. They seek dominance and even mass murder in Middle East and North Africa and Ukraine. Globo-elites have raped Russia and want to rape some more. They are utterly without conscience or restraint. They use Wall Street like a casino, loot the economy, and when all fails, they use government for bailouts. And they use media to spread lies. They act like gangsters but act like victims. They act like neo-Nazis while accusing others, especially patriots, of ‘neo-nazism’.

    Like rappers, they pretend to be on the side of ‘justice’ by making pretty noises about those darling homos and ‘refugees’. Never mind those refugees are the result of gangster globalism that wrecked Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Never mind the breakdown of borders is destroying nations and cultures. And never mind homos are forcing their lifestyle as a new religion, a kind of secular religion or secugion.

    It’s no wonder that even globalist elites who don’t listen to rap music(and keep their own kids from it) fully endorse the spread of rap as universal globalist culture.
    It’s promotes the World of the Gangsta posing as Moral Crusader.
    Rappers and Globalists are on the same wavelength.

    And the merging of globalist gangsterism and rapper thuggism is there in HAMILTON, history as fantasy of thug power and ‘social justice’.

    This finding is also validated in art with the painting by "Dutch master Pieter Van der Meulen" which portrays William of Orange and his generals being blessed by Pope Innocent XI before the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.

    Much of what you write is interesting, and I feel myself open-minded to it. However, Tom Brady only has any Irish ancestry on his father's side.

    That’s a fair point. I should say that these people are phenotypically Irish even if their genotype is not 100% pure. So phenotypically I would say that Tom Brady is a typical man of Connacht. Kathy Ireland looks a lot like a Munster woman where as Grace Kelly and former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney had the faces you’d normally see in Donegal. There are different Irish types and it’s not uncommon that they occur even in the same family, but these are definitely faces and features that are distinct to Ireland.

    American mystery meat on the other hand is just a blurring, softening and rounding off of features from different European countries. They’ve lost the physical attributes that nature took thousands of years to develop in their ancestors in the same way that they have lost the culture and history of their ancestors.

    He was talking about Pope Adrian IV, the supposed laudabilitier papal bull, and the Norman Invasion of Ireland. That article seemed really DaVinci Code to me and it's from the same period when Vatican conspiracy theories were such a big deal, but let's assume that both it and the laudabilitier are true for a moment. Papal infallibility only applies to faith and morals and would have no relation to the papal bull in question or the article you linked to. We all know that the Vatican is subject to corruption, like every church and earthly organization. When you extend church history over the course of a couple thousand years you will find plenty of examples of corruption to choose from. This does not change the truth of church teaching or of the Catholic Church itself which are not earthly institutions.

    The fact is that the Catholic faith was the integral factor in preserving the Irish culture and people as distinct entities through all the centuries of English occupation. Anglo apologists therefore are compelled to attack it. They memorize aberrations in Vatican policy were the church acted against Irish interests in the same way that bastards and scoundrels memorize what they think are contradictions in the Bible. In both cases they are looking for ways to invalidate the truth because they know that they themselves are fundamentally crooked and wrong.

    Why specifically?

    To use a biological analogy, 3rd world economic immigrants are like obvious foreign bodies that will never be accepted within Ireland. The English are more like a pathogen that mimics a regular nutrient thereby causing harm to the body. It’s like how the body mistakes lead for calcium and tries to process it in the same way and becomes sick as are result.

    The English can sometimes pass and intermarry with the Irish and influence Irish society but they are a poison to Irish culture and to the pure, Celtic genetic stock of Ireland. Anyone can see that Anglos are darker, smaller in stature and generally less attractive than the Irish. This is because they themselves are a mud people who are the result of constant conquest and invasion going back to Roman times and continuing into their invasion and colonization of brown people. The Anglo DNA stock is thereby composed of the detritus of Europe and to a smaller extent of the world.

    In terms of their actions, time and time again they have proven themselves to be duplicitous, covetous and untrustworthy. Everywhere the English have gone they have brought chaos and decay first physically by invasion and colonization and now culturally in the form of black/Anglo/Jewish music and culture. What does England export anymore beyond it’s filthy and disgusting culture? They are a poisonous and degenerate people. This is why I support a program of negative eugenics to gradually eradicate Anglo DNA from Ireland.

    Celts aren't exactly known for their height. Brady probably owes his height, musculature, and athleticism in good part to his Nordic ancestry.

    Anglos are actually known for being fair skinned and blond, especially in their youth. Perhaps they don't have the very pale/alabaster skin of certain Irish, but they are definitely more fair in general than the dark or black Irish.

    I don't think the English ever wanted to kill all the Irish, any more than the Normans wanted to kill all the English (in fact the "English" invasion of Ireland was a Norman invasion, the English didn't have much say in the matter). Feudal lords had to have productive people to tax and to fight for them.

    The funny thing is that Gerry Adams and co are still moaning about the evil Brits even as Ireland is filling up with very non-English people. The number of non-Irish nationals has doubled between 2001 and 2011, they're now 1 in 8 of the population, and Poles are the largest minority, up from 2,000 to 122,000 in a decade.

How much of that is posturing I don't know - but the unique arrangements between Britain and Ireland (Irish citizens can vote in UK elections, and you can hold both British and Irish passports) make it actually quite a neat idea if you're in Ireland a lot. There are over 110,000 Brits south of the border.

    The Irish were of the wrong religion and kept their own ways. Even in the islands they didn’t make good slaves. There were plenty of Highland Scots of the proper religion for menial tasks in Eire proper. Even the Scots had enough in short order and moved on to the American Highlands.

    Moving on here- I finally recognize what White Privilege is. We called it an ethnic neighborhood when I was young. Black Privilege used to make me uncomfortable driving through black areas of the Southside of Chicago. But , if peaceful, everybody deserves their bit of turf.

    "Even in the islands they didn’t make good slaves"

    The men didn't. The Westmann Islands off Iceland are famously named after Irish slaves ('Westmen') who killed their owner and were hunted down on the islands. Icelandic maternal DNA is famously Irish - the Vikings picked up "wives" by force in Ireland and the Hebrides en route from Norway. They must have gone the pretty way round, as a straight line is Shetland-Faroes.

    Back in the Saxon and Norman day, English slaves were regularly shipped from Bristol to the Viking city of Dublin.

    http://www.buildinghistory.org/bristol/saxonslaves.shtml

    But the Norman overlords of Ireland post-conquest 'just' wanted farmers to tax and soldiers to fight for them, as they did in England and Pembrokeshire. The Irish only became 'the wrong religion' 350 years after the Normans arrived, when Henry VIII broke with the Pope.

    I lived in Colorado in the '80s, and the "where are you from" question was a typical conversational starting point. It wasn't until I moved to NYC where the question became one of genealogical heritage and ethnic origin. As an American, I found it off-putting (but certainly not rude), as the questioner usually wanted to brag on their ethnic pride as some mark of accomplishment or superiority (or something). I never understood what the who-ha was all about--heritage was not something I had any direct control over....

    Yeah, in places where everyone is from some other country, it means what country. In places where everyone is from some other city, it means what city. In real places, it means what high school or what neighborhood or even what street.

    Yes, white people are evil, racist, privileged, nasty, vicious, vile, genocidal, wicked, horrible, terrible, xenophobic, and etc.

    Out of interest, what papal bull is being referenced here?

    I learned only very recently, much to my shock and subsequent dismay, that Pope Innocent XI was actually secretly funding William of Orange.

    Corresponding documents from Innocent's family records show that the Holy See sent 150,000 scudi to William via an intermediary. The sum, equivalent to more than £3.5 million today, equalled the Vatican's annual budget deficit.

    This finding is also validated in art with the painting by "Dutch master Pieter Van der Meulen" which portrays William of Orange and his generals being blessed by Pope Innocent XI before the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.

    Further, Pope Innocent XI "famously ordered the singing of a celebratory Te Deum in Rome when news arrived of William’s victory over James at the Boyne."

    A papist painting for a Protestant parliament?

    Was there also a papal bull?

    I've no doubt Dean Van Nguyen would find this discussion as fascinating and as important as we do :-)

    *apparently the painting is not what has been portrayed.

    He was talking about Pope Adrian IV, the supposed laudabilitier papal bull, and the Norman Invasion of Ireland. That article seemed really DaVinci Code to me and it’s from the same period when Vatican conspiracy theories were such a big deal, but let’s assume that both it and the laudabilitier are true for a moment. Papal infallibility only applies to faith and morals and would have no relation to the papal bull in question or the article you linked to. We all know that the Vatican is subject to corruption, like every church and earthly organization. When you extend church history over the course of a couple thousand years you will find plenty of examples of corruption to choose from. This does not change the truth of church teaching or of the Catholic Church itself which are not earthly institutions.

    The fact is that the Catholic faith was the integral factor in preserving the Irish culture and people as distinct entities through all the centuries of English occupation. Anglo apologists therefore are compelled to attack it. They memorize aberrations in Vatican policy were the church acted against Irish interests in the same way that bastards and scoundrels memorize what they think are contradictions in the Bible. In both cases they are looking for ways to invalidate the truth because they know that they themselves are fundamentally crooked and wrong.

    This does not change the truth of church teaching or of the Catholic Church itself which are not earthly institutions. Quite agree.

    The revelation re. Pope Innocent XI and his betrayal is shocking as it was not only a betrayal of the Irish but also and more damning, the Church. From my reading Pope Adrian IV's actions, as explained in the above linked "note", were to advance the Church, and thus the Irish. Once those conditions of his grant were betrayed then so too the grant is null and void. So, it is in no way comparable to that of Pope Innocent XI.

    And of course, none of the above has anything to do with the magisterium, infallibility etc etc that others may throw up.

    Good news for decent people. Not only noble Nguyen is combating white privilege in places like Ireland.

    Wonderful People of Color are fighting white privilege in France.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD7UA1d-WnA

    They made the long hazardous trek to Paris to share their wisdom with benighted Frenchmen who still cling to croissants and ‘white privilegois’.

    It is the brown man’s burden. Enlightenment was ‘racist’. Now, we have Endarkenment, the real thing since it has color whereas light is ‘white’.

    Not since St. Paul trekked to Rome to share his faith has there been such nobleness and kindness of spirit and generosity.
    These ‘migrants’ are risking life and limb to enlighten, I mean endarken, white folks about the evils of ‘white privilege’.

    So, Paris of today is not what was shown in Playtime. It’s more like Battle of Algiers.
    The great struggle for justice.

    But I wonder…

    When Algerians battled the wicked French in Algeria, the French had France to return to.
    But when rising tide of color attacks the French for being French in France, where do the French go to next?

    I dunno. I need to be endarkened more to gain true wisdom.

    That's a fair point. I should say that these people are phenotypically Irish even if their genotype is not 100% pure. So phenotypically I would say that Tom Brady is a typical man of Connacht. Kathy Ireland looks a lot like a Munster woman where as Grace Kelly and former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney had the faces you'd normally see in Donegal. There are different Irish types and it's not uncommon that they occur even in the same family, but these are definitely faces and features that are distinct to Ireland.

    American mystery meat on the other hand is just a blurring, softening and rounding off of features from different European countries. They've lost the physical attributes that nature took thousands of years to develop in their ancestors in the same way that they have lost the culture and history of their ancestors. They've traded their genetic and cultural heritage for money and a mish mash of ready made Anglo/Jewish cultural inventions. It's very sad.

    Rap is perfect representation of globalist imperialism.

    Rapper is all about thug culture. He is a bully, gangsta, pig, and crass materialist. He celebrates raw power and intimidation over others. Rap culture is about being above the law and the middle finger to all moral norms.
    Yet, because of American history of past discrimination, even the slimiest rapper poses as a rebel against injustice. He plays robbin' hood even though his ilk have ruined black communities and others as well.

    Globalist elites are, of course, different from rappers. They go to fine schools and are refined. But their worldview of rapper-like in that they love to plunder, loot, pillage, warmonger, and bullshi* their way to dominance. They seek dominance and even mass murder in Middle East and North Africa and Ukraine. Globo-elites have raped Russia and want to rape some more. They are utterly without conscience or restraint. They use Wall Street like a casino, loot the economy, and when all fails, they use government for bailouts. And they use media to spread lies. They act like gangsters but act like victims. They act like neo-Nazis while accusing others, especially patriots, of 'neo-nazism'.

    Like rappers, they pretend to be on the side of 'justice' by making pretty noises about those darling homos and 'refugees'. Never mind those refugees are the result of gangster globalism that wrecked Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Never mind the breakdown of borders is destroying nations and cultures. And never mind homos are forcing their lifestyle as a new religion, a kind of secular religion or secugion.

    It's no wonder that even globalist elites who don't listen to rap music(and keep their own kids from it) fully endorse the spread of rap as universal globalist culture.
    It's promotes the World of the Gangsta posing as Moral Crusader.
    Rappers and Globalists are on the same wavelength.

    And the merging of globalist gangsterism and rapper thuggism is there in HAMILTON, history as fantasy of thug power and 'social justice'.

    Yet, because of American history of past discrimination…

    Wouldn’t “separation” be more accurate than “discrimination”?

    He's desperate to be an 'authentic' victim so he can reap all the rewards given such victims by contemporary western cultures -- hence the page full of rap wannabe links. He is therefore more like Rachel Dolezal or Shaun King, not a 'tragic mulatto'.

    Indeed.

    Some of the responses on this blog are predictable. A half-white (and half-Asian) man who looks mostly white and has lived a mostly (entirely?) white life goes into the full “victim of color” mode, and it’s non-white this, non-white that. There is this contingent here that just desperately wants all (real) non-whites to be hostile, so they can justify their views.

    At the end of the day, it’s a very nihilistic view, and not as self-serving as they might imagine.

    At the risk of coming across as whiny, I'll do my best to summarize what I think the root of the problem is being born half Asian.

    Having one white parent, and having been born in the US, I self-identified as white growing up. It makes sense: I grew up in white neighborhoods, had white friends, never had to speak Korean, etc... Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn't mean crap - it's what other people identify you as that really counts. And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures - you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white. Of course if I had been born in Korea of the same mix I'd probably wish I was 100% Korean.

    I once got called out on my racial hypersensitivity (like being offended by the "where are you from?" question): It was put to me this way: you think you are white and you absolutely hate it whenever someone reminds you that you aren't.

    Growing older, it dawned on me that what you identify as doesn’t mean crap – it’s what other people identify you as that really counts.

    I wholeheartedly disagree. How you identify yourself has – or can have – a very large bearing on how others see you.

    I am not part-anything. In ancestry, I am completely East Asian. But I never had a chip on my shoulder, and always considered myself very blessed, first to be born in a civilized country with an ancient tradition, in a loving and honorable family, then to have grown up there and then in the United States, the greatest country on earth, and later to be a citizen of this great country. I always thought that I was the architect of my own destiny. So I decided to be who I wanted to be, not what others saw or wanted to see in me. So in self-identity, I am not Asian-American – I consider myself a full American, period. I have thought and behaved thusly, and others have treated me the same. Once in a while, after seeing me pick something very spicy to eat, my friends will say, “Heck, while talking and hanging out with you, I forget that you are Asian… until I see you eat that stuff.” And then I usually retort, “You know what? *I* forget that I am Asian… until I am hungry.”

    And I think this is the root of the problem for all mixed race people in white cultures – you may say you have pride in your nonwhite culture, and on the surface that may be true. But deep down inside you wish you were white.

    With all due consideration to your particular experience and feelings, I think you are engaging in projection to say that “all mixed race people in white cultures” wish they were white. My children certainly don’t. They are happy to be who they are. They are faithful Christians (Catholics), patriotic Americans, members of our community, and my children first… being half-white/half-Asian is rather low in their self-identity. They mostly see themselves as all-American boys and girls, with just a touch of the exotic.

    I don’t doubt that some mixed children would wish they were white. But I think there is a rather wide spectrum on how mixed children seen themselves in ethno-cultural terms (racially, science confirms the levels of mixture). I can think of numerous factors that go into that “equation” so to speak. For example, mixed white-black children almost always identify as blacks while mixed white-Asians frequently identify as whites. There are also family dynamics at work. When the parents originate from highly unequal socio-economic backgrounds, that can obviously have a powerful impact. In contrast, when the parents are “assortatively” matched, I think the identity challenge is less significant for the children. Similarly, looks and personal achievements can also be strong factors (e.g. I don’t think Nathan Adrian goes around wishing he were full-white, seeing as he is a hunky, muscular, 6′ 6″ tall, five-time Olymic gold medalist in swimming – that guy is ALWAYS grinning in photographs, like life is so awesome for him or something).

    My children are all native-born Southerners, and occasionally they will needle me (East Asian-born, educated in NYC and New England) and their mother (Midwestern-born) that they are, “by Grace of God, real Southerners,” while their mom and I are carpetbaggers.

    Maybe racial separation is the only cure.
     
    Having pride in yourself and who you are (including your racial and ethnic heritage), in a like-minded society, is the cure. Of course, that leads to racial separation...

    Hence Vietnam, Korea, Japan, China, Israel, etc...

    Lacking that pride, make sure you're flexible enough to grab your ankles on short notice. Because grifters like the author will always want more. Conscience certainly won't stop them.

    All entirely natural. And since this obvious point is taboo, the desire to express it gets sublimated into nonsense like the article - the existence of which disproves its thesis.

    “Where are you from” is a staple of just-met-you small talk, second only to “what do you do?” How have you missed this fact?
     
    He's a flake. Surely you've noticed this by now.

    I have really come to see Asians SJWs as the absolute worst. Blacks at least have to deal with actual poverty (and some people really do say cruel things to them,) and certainly did not ask to come to majority-white countries. Most of the Jews I’ve met seem to very genuinely believe they are helping others. But Asian SJWs moved voluntarily, got rich, and then complain endlessly about their hosts. If they author doesn’t want to live in a country built by the Irish, they can go live in a country built by the Vietnamese.
     
    Is there any visible opposition to these "Asian SJWs" in the Asia community? Until you see some, you can drop the "SJW" qualifier; it's Asians. It's not like the whole problem with the Mongols was the Khans.

    That’s right. White Irish women want sexy men from Vietnam.
     
    There is no situation too absurd for Whis and his white wymminz hatred.

    Is there any visible opposition to these “Asian SJWs” in the Asia community? Until you see some, you can drop the “SJW” qualifier; it’s Asians.

    That’s nonsense. Most Asians aren’t even aware of the whole “SJW” phenomenon because they are busy working and raising families. And since they are neither culturally nor politically a monolithic bloc like blacks, they don’t see why they need to disavow some weirdo just because he happens to be “Asian” whatever originating from the same giant and diverse continent means. Must Norwegians go around apologizing for English soccer hooligans, let alone Albanian gangsters?

    At the end of the day, the desired audience of SJW, be they white or Asian, is almost always whites.

    Also, there is really no “Asia community.” There are some places of high degrees of Asian population concentration in the U.S., and of coure immigrant communities tend to retain some social cohesion among the first generation, but the overall residential pattern is that Asians in American tend to live intermixed with other ethnic groups, usually whites… unlike blacks and Hispanics.
