George Soros: No Hate at Middlebury!

Screenshot 2017-03-16 14.22.18

Here’s George Soros’s new Hate Incident Database map at his well-funded Communities Against Hate site. From the NYT:

When Hate Surges
By GEORGE SOROS MARCH 16, 2017

You’ll notice that there is no Hate in Vermont. It’s just a blessedly blank spot on Soros’s map of Hate Incidents. No Hate there!

Now, you might have thought that a mob of masked vigilantes putting Middlebury College professor Allison Stanger in the hospital with a concussion and whiplash would qualify as a hate incident.

But the fact that incident sounds like hate to you just proves you are one of the Hateful.

    CA is red because the map only counts total incidents, not incidents per capita.

    If you look to the right of the map each incident is described based on the victim's group (gay, immigrant, black, and jew) and an oddball category called "Other".

    Illinois, for example, had such an incident described as "Schizophrenic man tortured on Facebook live".

    The SJW obsession with violence shows little sign of letting up:

    Have you heard that 2017’s Richard Spencer incident officially kicked off Nazi punching season? It’s true. The more we communicate the immediate risk that Nazis run of being punched wherever they go, the better. This t-shirt gets that message across, and stars our very favorite cinematic Professor of Archaeology and unrepentant Nazi-puncher [Indiana Jones].

    Have they identified the black guy who punched Richard Spencer on video yet? Shouldn't he have been given a MacArthur Genius Grant, invited to give the rebuttal to Trump's address to the joint session of congress, or maybe been elected head of the DNC?
  5. It seems like our Visionary Class is winding up to give Klan-whippin’ at least proxy legitimacy. Maybe SJWs will have to take out “Kill Whitey” license before any given event. In such a case, Professor Stanger would rank as “casualty bystander” and her attacker guilty of, at best, misdemeanor contact.

  8. George Soros actually had the colossal gall to pay BLM thugs to riot in Ferguson and other places when Obama and Holder were in charge.

    Will Soros try to pull the same paymaster stunt with Trump in the White House? – – – and if Soros does, will Jeff Sessions give Soros a free pass like Holder did?

    Wasn’t paying people to cross state lines and riot a serious violation of the US Code once upon a time?

    Politics of Hate is a gimmick. It is really a Politics of Power. The powers-that-be get to define and decide what is ‘hate’ to discredit their enemies. So, acts of hatred carried out by their side or their minions isn’t ‘hate’. But anyone who opposes their agenda is ‘hate’, even if he is acting in self-defense.

    That’s all it is. ‘Hate’ is a gimmick, a tool of mind control. Pure political ploy.

    Of course, all sides do this. Usually, ‘war crimes’ are what the OTHER side does, never what your side does.
    US bitches about torture and ‘human rights’ abuses in Syria but overlooks its role at Abu Gharib that no one talks about anymore.

  15. The Times article has a picture of protestors that’s labeled:

    A protest on March 7 against President Trump’s revised travel ban outside Customs and Border Protection headquarters in Washington.

    If you look at the picture, there appears to be a partially obscured sign held by someone in the crowd from (or supporting) the ACLU, the organization that advocates for civil rights and free speech issues.

    Question: Has there been any such presence by the ACLU at the Middlebury, Berkely or NYU events where the leftist perspective succeeded in shutting down free speech from the right? I haven’t seen or heard of any. Go to the ironically titled “SPEAK FREELY” blog at the ACLU, and you’re not going to find no reference to it. I couldn’t find any. There’s not much more than anti-Trump, pro-Muslim immigrant rhetoric….pages and pages of it. Gone are the days when the ACLU stood up for the expression of opinions that were unpopular with academics. They’re now another SPLC.

    Denying reality comes naturally to humans. But some people go beyond the usual denial of everyday reality. Thus, denial of reality becomes a worldview and way of life.

    It’s like Melancholy is an emotional state, but Melancholia is a condition. It’s always there. You’re always sad even when there’s nothing bad happening.

    Likewise, the Modern World is living in a kind of Denialia. Everyday, we deny little things for the sake of convenience. It could be lies we tell to others or to ourselves. But for some people, a steady denial of reality turns into ‘denialia’, and people can end up like Diane Selwyn in MULHOLLAND DR or Stephen Glass of New Republic who kept denying and denying his BS. It was beyond lying. It was as if he created his own universe and stuck to it regardless of facts.

    MELANCHOLIA is a terrible movie, but it says something about the current European state of mind. A giant demographic asteroid belt or tidal wave is hitting Europe, but Europeans are living in a state of denial. (Or they’ve become accustomed to a kind of pessimism and defeatism borne of Christianity, Ice Age genetics of Ragnarok gloom-and-doom, WWI & WWII loss of confidence, Holocaust guilt, and decadence/convenience. Decadence/convenience may, in some ways, be most instrumental since postwar prosperity took away the survival instincts of western man. A people, no matter how guilt-ridden by PC, will fight for a piece of bread if they are hungry. Even the most libby-dibby progs will fight with blacks and browns for bread and water if faced with survival or death. It’s like the TWILIGHT ZONE episode where neighbors begin to get Primal when faced with the end of times.)

    It went from denying little facts to a complete delusional denial of the big truth. But, all lifeforms have some survival instincts, and surely, many Europeans, even ones who welcome the Grand Invasion, are subconsciously feeling some kind of dread. But because of PC-colonization of their mind, they must make themselves believe that the enemy is the friend and the friend-and-savior(the populist patriot heroes) is the enemy. But since this pill is difficult to swallow, they naturally wanna puke it ou. But they’ve been told since childhood that PC is good medicine and that it’d be evil to not swallow it. So, they force themselves to swallow the poison while believing it to be medicine.

    People are most passionate about (1) something they truly believe in or (2) something they fear isn’t true but believe to be holy. For (1), the passion is obvious. If you really believe in something, of course you want to root for it. The passion comes naturally and effortlessly. But (2) is more complicated. The passion required isn’t natural. But because PC says you’re a bad bad person unless you show enthusiasm, you must make an EXTRA EFFORT to feel the passion. Thus, you have to struggle with yourself that you really believe in this stuff. Straight people’s support for homos AND secular support for Muslims aren’t natural. But PC promoted homomania and now Islamania as holy, and good progs feel they must be for Homos and Muslims. Since Trump has cozied up to Homos, Progs feel they must now champion Muslims against Trump… but everything secularists believe in don’t jibe well with Sharia or Islam.
    In a way, willed passion is more zealous and aggressive than natural passion since one has to stiffen one’s emotions to support something one doesn’t really care for.

    I think a lot of Europeans feel, deep down inside, that the massive-invasion by non-whites will spell doom for Europe. But they’ve been mentally-colonized since childhood that Diversity is wonderful and, if you disagree, you are a Bad Bad person. But it’s not natural to welcome massive invasion. Being invaded doesn’t feel right. So, you make an extra effort to feel the passion, and this turns coercive and judgmental. In a way, your dogmatic zeal to persuade others is a really a means to convince yourself of something that a part of you still denies subconsciously.

    Also, there is the power of momentum. Once a grand event has been put into motion, it’s hard to change course. Too much has been invested in pride, material, propaganda, and etc. Once WWI got started, it was fight to the end. And when Germany invaded USSR, there was no turning back. And even those who didn’t like the idea had to go along. And same with Japan in war with US.
    Once the die has been cast, you find yourself with little choice but to go along… even if you know it will end badly. It’s like Mao and the Cultural Revolution. He learned early on that things were going badly, with Red Guards acting like tards and going beyond what Mao called for. But he let loose the fury, and there was no turning back until the fire burned out some of its own accord. Even Mao couldn’t shut it immediately since he’d told the young nuts to ‘bombard the headquarters’. Likewise, Merkel has called on foreign masses to bombard Europe. Having invested her pride and reputation on the rightness of her decision, she can’t go back. All in all, as horrible as the Cultural Revolution, it was nothing compared to the damage that will be done by the Tribal Revolution as new tribes invade and remake Europe.

    Maybe all this stuff about ‘climate change’ or global warming is a way to channel one’s existential fears elsewhere to a safe space of discourse. The REAL threat to the West is massive invasion, but saying so is taboo, so Western Fears have been shifted to worrying about the weather. So, it is safer to attach whatever is wrong in the world to ‘climate change’. So, if there are mobs, esp non-whites, rioting in some part of the world, it must be the result of ‘climate change’. So, something has to be done about it… like having more non-whites come to the West. This is totally crazy, but when a civilization is in a state of Denialia and cannot speak the truth, it will seek something else to scapegoat as the source of problem.

    PC is such a pile of lie that Denialia has become a condition of the Modern World. We don’t deny little things here and there. We deny huge swathes of reality altogether.

    In a way, gentrification is proof that even globo-elites are onto what’s really up. If diversity is making everything so much better, why are they creating these self-contained oases of privilege APART from rest of society that is becoming more diverse and confused? They talk of ‘sanctuary cities’ to protect the ‘poor illegal dreamers’, but real effect of ‘sanctuary cities’ is to maintain privilege in selective parts of cities(made posh and elegant) by keep a docile class of servant laborers.

    It’s like all those jerks at Middlebury College. They attend some elite college and will aim for affluent jobs after college and will seek to live in urban-affluent sanctuaries but they talk the talk of ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’.

    Skokie march was lead by a Jewish man in a Nazi costume:


    Francis Joseph "Frank" Collin

    Collin was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. His father Max Collin later said that he was a Jewish survivor of the Nazi Holocaust and had anglicized his name from Cohen or Cohn after settling in the United States.

     


    Collin founded the National Socialist Party of America.[1] In the late 1970s, its plan to march in the predominantly Jewish suburb of Skokie, Illinois was challenged, but the ACLU defended its freedom of speech and assembly in a case that reached the United States Supreme Court.

And even those who didn't like the idea had to go along. And same with Japan in war with US.
    Once the die has been cast, you find yourself with little choice but to go along... even if you know it will end badly. It's like Mao and the Cultural Revolution. He learned early on that things were going badly, with Red Guards acting like tards and going beyond what Mao called for. But he let loose the fury, and there was no turning back until the fire burned out some of its own accord. Even Mao couldn't shut it immediately since he'd told the young nuts to 'bombard the headquarters'. Likewise, Merkel has called on foreign masses to bombard Europe. Having invested her pride and reputation on the rightness of her decision, she can't go back. All in all, as horrible as the Cultural Revolution, it was nothing compared to the damage that will be done by the Tribal Revolution as new tribes invade and remake Europe.

    Maybe all this stuff about 'climate change' or global warming is a way to channel one's existential fears elsewhere to a safe space of discourse. The REAL threat to the West is massive invasion, but saying so is taboo, so Western Fears have been shifted to worrying about the weather. So, it is safer to attach whatever is wrong in the world to 'climate change'. So, if there are mobs, esp non-whites, rioting in some part of the world, it must be the result of 'climate change'. So, something has to be done about it... like having more non-whites come to the West. This is totally crazy, but when a civilization is in a state of Denialia and cannot speak the truth, it will seek something else to scapegoat as the source of problem.

    PC is such a pile of lie that Denialia has become a condition of the Modern World. We don't deny little things here and there. We deny huge swathes of reality altogether.

    In a way, gentrification is proof that even globo-elites are onto what's really up. If diversity is making everything so much better, why are they creating these self-contained oases of privilege APART from rest of society that is becoming more diverse and confused? They talk of 'sanctuary cities' to protect the 'poor illegal dreamers', but real effect of 'sanctuary cities' is to maintain privilege in selective parts of cities(made posh and elegant) by keep a docile class of servant laborers.

    It's like all those jerks at Middlebury College. They attend some elite college and will aim for affluent jobs after college and will seek to live in urban-affluent sanctuaries but they talk the talk of 'equality' and 'diversity'.

    "Hate on" means simply criticism, of any kind. Millennials can't stand anything but praise, so anything short is hate.

    Ugh. Millennials are the WORST, amirite? All young and not exactly like previous generations. How dare they? And what’s the deal with airline food??

    George Soros mentions that, when immigrants move into an area, crime goes down. I think Steve might have an explanation that has somehow eluded Mr Soros and the four professors who conducted the research.

    Well, Soros is an immigrant himself. Let’s give him a list of “areas” to which he can relocate, and bring crime down.

    Well, it would be "odiar a alguien." No definite article needed.

    And "hate on" is not interchangeable with "hate." It basically means "talking trash."

    Well, it would be “odiar a alguien.” No definite article needed.

    I kinda thought so, but I let Google Translate “correct” me.

    I seriously question whether the ACLU ever stood up for the expression of opinions that were unpopular with academics!
     
    There was Skokie, IL, but that was a long time ago - way back when I was in college.

    Skokie march was lead by a Jewish man in a Nazi costume:

    Francis Joseph “Frank” Collin

    Collin was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. His father Max Collin later said that he was a Jewish survivor of the Nazi Holocaust and had anglicized his name from Cohen or Cohn after settling in the United States.

    Collin founded the National Socialist Party of America.[1] In the late 1970s, its plan to march in the predominantly Jewish suburb of Skokie, Illinois was challenged, but the ACLU defended its freedom of speech and assembly in a case that reached the United States Supreme Court.

  35. I’m sure other folk that have commented have pointed this out, nevertheless, the vast majority of the of the states colored white are. . . ahem. . . very white. It could be interpreted that there are less “minorities” and therefore less opportunity to commit an act of hate (we all know hate only flows in one direction). On the other hand, much to the creator of the map’s chagrin, it could also be interpreted that diversity equals violent hate crimes.

    Denying reality comes naturally to humans. But some people go beyond the usual denial of everyday reality. Thus, denial of reality becomes a worldview and way of life.

    It's like Melancholy is an emotional state, but Melancholia is a condition. It's always there. You're always sad even when there's nothing bad happening.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueAYUp4rHZI

    Likewise, the Modern World is living in a kind of Denialia. Everyday, we deny little things for the sake of convenience. It could be lies we tell to others or to ourselves. But for some people, a steady denial of reality turns into 'denialia', and people can end up like Diane Selwyn in MULHOLLAND DR or Stephen Glass of New Republic who kept denying and denying his BS. It was beyond lying. It was as if he created his own universe and stuck to it regardless of facts.

    MELANCHOLIA is a terrible movie, but it says something about the current European state of mind. A giant demographic asteroid belt or tidal wave is hitting Europe, but Europeans are living in a state of denial. (Or they've become accustomed to a kind of pessimism and defeatism borne of Christianity, Ice Age genetics of Ragnarok gloom-and-doom, WWI & WWII loss of confidence, Holocaust guilt, and decadence/convenience. Decadence/convenience may, in some ways, be most instrumental since postwar prosperity took away the survival instincts of western man. A people, no matter how guilt-ridden by PC, will fight for a piece of bread if they are hungry. Even the most libby-dibby progs will fight with blacks and browns for bread and water if faced with survival or death. It's like the TWILIGHT ZONE episode where neighbors begin to get Primal when faced with the end of times.)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i03LDTjC7wo

    It went from denying little facts to a complete delusional denial of the big truth. But, all lifeforms have some survival instincts, and surely, many Europeans, even ones who welcome the Grand Invasion, are subconsciously feeling some kind of dread. But because of PC-colonization of their mind, they must make themselves believe that the enemy is the friend and the friend-and-savior(the populist patriot heroes) is the enemy. But since this pill is difficult to swallow, they naturally wanna puke it ou. But they've been told since childhood that PC is good medicine and that it'd be evil to not swallow it. So, they force themselves to swallow the poison while believing it to be medicine.

    People are most passionate about (1) something they truly believe in or (2) something they fear isn't true but believe to be holy. For (1), the passion is obvious. If you really believe in something, of course you want to root for it. The passion comes naturally and effortlessly. But (2) is more complicated. The passion required isn't natural. But because PC says you're a bad bad person unless you show enthusiasm, you must make an EXTRA EFFORT to feel the passion. Thus, you have to struggle with yourself that you really believe in this stuff. Straight people's support for homos AND secular support for Muslims aren't natural. But PC promoted homomania and now Islamania as holy, and good progs feel they must be for Homos and Muslims. Since Trump has cozied up to Homos, Progs feel they must now champion Muslims against Trump... but everything secularists believe in don't jibe well with Sharia or Islam.
    In a way, willed passion is more zealous and aggressive than natural passion since one has to stiffen one's emotions to support something one doesn't really care for.

    I think a lot of Europeans feel, deep down inside, that the massive-invasion by non-whites will spell doom for Europe. But they've been mentally-colonized since childhood that Diversity is wonderful and, if you disagree, you are a Bad Bad person. But it's not natural to welcome massive invasion. Being invaded doesn't feel right. So, you make an extra effort to feel the passion, and this turns coercive and judgmental. In a way, your dogmatic zeal to persuade others is a really a means to convince yourself of something that a part of you still denies subconsciously.

    Also, there is the power of momentum. Once a grand event has been put into motion, it's hard to change course. Too much has been invested in pride, material, propaganda, and etc. Once WWI got started, it was fight to the end. And when Germany invaded USSR, there was no turning back.

    CA is red because the map only counts total incidents, not incidents per capita.

    If you look to the right of the map each incident is described based on the victim's group (gay, immigrant, black, and jew) and an oddball category called "Other".

    Illinois, for example, had such an incident described as "Schizophrenic man tortured on Facebook live".

    I recall that incident well; it had nothing to do with race, of course.

    There was Skokie, IL, but that was a long time ago - way back when I was in college.

    I posted a detailed dossier of the ACLU’s partisan (leftist) agenda and actions about a month ago in reponse to someone else insisting they magnanimously defend and impartially everyone’s freedoms, but Steve did not post it for reasons of his own.

    I can here reiterate, based upon the numerous recent examples of their behaviour I located for that posting, that they are indeed no different then the $PLC for all practical purposes.
