And then they came for Harold Ford Jr., a quasi-black politician, VIP, and MSNBC commenter. From the NYT:

Harold Ford Jr. Fired by Morgan Stanley Over Inappropriate ‘Conduct’
By KATE KELLY DEC. 7, 2017

Harold Ford Jr., a former congressman turned Wall Street rainmaker, was fired by the financial services firm Morgan Stanley in recent days “for conduct inconsistent with our values and in violation of our policies,” the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Morgan Stanley declined to say specifically what prompted the firing. But it came after a woman who did not work at the firm accused Mr. Ford of acting inappropriately in a professional setting, according to a person briefed on the details of the allegations. The firing was earlier reported by HuffPost.

Basically, we are seeing a culling of the extraverted ethnicities, the “not shy” boys (to quote Spy magazine’s 1989 assessment of director James Toback’s one good trait), such as Jews and blacks. Who is going to be left to man the Democratic Party: Japanese Americans?

    You know, for all we talk about race, I occasionally wonder if gender isn’t going to turn out to be the real fissure issue of the upcoming decades, eclipsing race. It’s an issue that strikes me as more existential in a fundamental sense.

    I mean to say, we've had highly effective female rulers in history, from Zenobia and Boudicca to Thatcher. But all of them were arguably harder than the men were, beating the boys at their own game and being even more ruthless at pursuing national interests absent sentimentality. A major political party in a nuclear superpower openly embracing effeminacy (of the increasingly pseudo-aggressive and dysfunctional 21st Century America sort) is something else altogether.

    We've already seen "feminist foreign policy" pursued by other countries, but this is something new...

    I forget who to give credit for the idea but someone on here made the suggestion we do a age 18-44 ONLY SINGLE WOMEN immigration policy. I called it a "Trumpian immigration policy" because his wife is a youngish attractive immigrant.

    Forgot who proposed it but it was the thread w the Salma Hayek pics. If all immigrants looked like that he said.....our women would slam that border shut so fast.....

    They'd claim at first it promoted prostitution and human trafficking etc until these women would show how happy they were as WIVES OF AMERICAN MEN....

    We could bring ALL of the white South African population here..... Boers or otherwise...

    Imagine women buying you drinks and asking you for your #.....3 25 yr old Mexican model wives.

    Yes please.

    Seriously let's do this....we have nothing to lose and everything to gain....

    Very true. And that's what so many people commenting here get wrong. Prior to Ferguson and the last 2 years of Obama's administration the gender divide was greater than the racial divide, and the sex panic is making it thusly again. It is easier to empathize with other males than feminists.

    Don't see it. The problem is the power skirts in the office. These women are totally poisonous and nuts. It's proving that women have no place in the corporate workforce.

    It' not their fault. It's a lie promoted by many people from college administrators, high school counselors, intellectuals of various stripes from the HBD set to feminazis.

    IOW if you're looking for people to blame look at every idiot out there yapping about how important college is and why it's important to be in the corporate world. They created this mess. They put women in where they don't belong. They also helped wreck the notion of marriage, family, tribe and community.

    I hope this legion of venomous power skirts bring down the entire rotting system. It deserves no less.

    What we are really seeing is the culling of feminist instincts from the gene pool. Some important habits and traits can be learned, but when nature has to do so it prefers to hardwire them into the genetic code. Prior to safe and effective birth control and abortion having sex meant having children. Now it doesn't. The development of both means that the gene pool will increasingly skew to favor women (and men) who want not only sex but who want children, as well, while feminists will increasingly be relegated to the minority. In most ways feminism will soon become a historical footnote.

    If you mean it's going to be the real fissure issue in the United States, and possibly Europe, among whites, then perhaps. But there is no way it's going to be the fissure issue among non-whites. Non-white females, especially those in historic white nations, will be united with their menfolk to displace the natives.
    , @anonymous
    The question then becomes whether or not this all represents the beginning of a seismic shift towards a matriarchal society. After all, the Left is always in search of a magic bullet that'll produce utopia. In this case they will adopt the view that somehow a female dominated society will save us from ourselves. If it happens, when all is said and done it'll still be business as usual down at the farm (or should I say "office"), except that it'll be done by people in skirts, pantsuits and heels rather than three-piece suits and perforated wing tips. And, as usual, the skirts and pantsuits--just like the visions-- will turn out to be as empty as the suits.

    Over 40 percent of white women voted for the "sexist" candidate Trump. Conversely, despite his appeal with black rappers, Trump only won 13 percent of the black male vote.
    , @Nico
    Intersectionalism has its logical weaknesses that should tear it apart, but something just occurred to me. Since humans aren't perfectly rational beings, it follows that the fissure may not operate in quite the way one might expect.

    For example, a surprisingly (to some) high percentage of women fantasize about rape, and 10% consider rape fantasy their "favorite" sexual fantasy.

    Of course, the thing about sexual fantasies is the "fantastic" element: they rarely play out as imagined, and rape particularly so, considering there is no element of input or control.

    It's quite conceivable that white women, who of course are in contact with mostly white men (and therefore if they get raped it is still likelier to be a white man) will for some time play along with the Narrative game, turning their newfound sensitivity against the advances and minor offenses of *white* men...

    ... while the objects of their fantasies are increasingly exotic, other, perceived as unlikely: in a word, black.

    This whole narrative is unsustainable at term, as soon as a white majority no longer exists to act as the scapegoat for the problems of all the oppressed. But I wouldn't count the Coalition of the Fringes out just yet. It still has very bright, destructive days ahead of it.

    Total bullshit. Women are not our enemies, they are our comrades. Our mothers, our sisters, our wives, our daughters, our nieces, our cousins, our aunts--they all have legitimate concerns, and they should be listened to. The denizens of "Women's Studies" departments are, of course, mostly damaged, delusional, not-too-intelligent people, just like academics in any "studies" department (African-American, Genocide, Gender, etc.). But none of the women in my life are like that, nor--I would wager--yours.

    Commenter Cortes asks what other values, besides profitability, Morgan Stanley has.

    Whenever some company fires somebody for "conduct inconsistent with our values", it is curious that those values are not listed in the news article reporting the firing. What values of Morgan Stanley did Harold Ford not comply with? Doing a search on "Morgan Stanley values", we find
    https://www.morganstanley.com/about-us/morgan-stanley-core-values
    , which lists their core values as: Putting clients first, Doing the right thing, Leading with exceptional ideas, Giving back. (There is no list of Morgan Stanley's non-core values.) Did Harold Ford not put a client first? Did he do a wrong thing? Did he not lead with two or more exceptional ideas? Did he not give back (what to whom)? Details, please!

    How effective were Zenobia and Boudicca? They revolted against Rome, and they got totally stomped. They were failures. That leaves Thatcher, a leader almost as ludicrously overrated as Reagan. The Thatcher cult more than anything else is a reflection of just how incredibly and catastrophically awful other recent Tory PMs have been been. Anyone looks good when compared to out-and-out traitors like Heath, Major and Cameron.

    Apparently, a presumably anonymous charge, from some one who doesn’t actually work there, resulted in the immediate firing of a man who evidently didn’t get a hearing at all, let alone an impartial one?

    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.

    And when they don’t even list the “inappropriate behavior”, that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don’t have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like “what is the best thing about a blow job?” “It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings”; to my personal favorite, stating, “you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!”.

    So far, every time more information comes out, it turns out the accused was lying and trying to cover up a lot of bad behavior. When I hear an employer just gives the bounce to someone, I assume it has more reasons that it's not talking about.

    Another thing, which I scarcely see mentioned anywhere, is that when you throw out the Rule of Law, globalism collapses.
    Almost all of the globalist billionaires have "wealth" that exists almost ENTIRELY as electronic data. What MAKES this into actual wealth is the rule of law, and the relation of law to the government guys with guns.
    Even the billionaires who to some degree control hard assets would not have nearly as much "wealth" if they were not relying on the legal system, and most especially the legal system of the United States.

    That's the most important issue here; we're watching the emergence of a parallel system of "justice" that, as you say, is unconstrained by any of those rules of procedure that together constitute the Anglosphere's greatest contribution to civilization.

    This new system can't jail you or execute you, but it can end your career, ruin your reputation, and nullify elections. That's quite a bit right there, I'd say.

Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.

    the endpoint is that guys who are producing $85,000/year of value for the company, while only costing $65,000/year are immunized from this nonsense.

    But Ford was producing a fractional amount of value at a high cost. So, he's disposable the first time there's even a hint of a ruckus.

    If Harold Ford Jr had accepted a position as Morgan Stanley's Deputy Assistant Vice President for Janitorial Staffing, no one would have cared when he got accused of trying to feel up a chick at a convention in Vegas, of Janitorial Management Executives

    The rule of law as we know it seems somewhat passe in the post scarcity digital Era. The tedious procedure of trial seems likely to go away.

    you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.
     
    You make some good conjectures, but just so we're clear on the fundamental sexual calculus that underlies all this: the sex with the small, cheap, vastly plentiful, disposable gametes is itself relatively disposable. It struggles, often violently, to distinguish itself in order to gain access to the sex with the large, nourishing, scarce and precious gametes. That is how life for a sexual species IS.

    Under the Law of the Jungle, the ratio of reproductive age women to men goes up, not down. At root - heh - civilization itself is an implicit pact between men to avoid violence and preserve value by sharing women according to rational male standards, not the bad boy standards of women.

    This is really quite an hysterical and silly comment.

    First of all, you can bet that Morgan Stanley knows a heck of a lot more about this situation than they're saying in public. There is no need to tarnish the company's image by revealing the salacious details of their employee's misbehavior. Their PR people advised them to quickly get rid of the troublemaker and to stay mum about the specifics, and they were right.

    Second, since you were not a party to these events, neither as a victim of Harold Ford, Jr. nor as a client of Morgan Stanley nor as an employee of Morgan Stanley, you do not have the right to demand knowledge of his antics, nor does anyone have the obligation to provide you with knowledge of such.

    Third, the rule of law has absolutely nothing to do with any of this. Harold Ford, Jr. is not being prosecuted by the government. He was terminated by a private employer who had every right to fire him if they didn't like what he was doing. Absolutely no laws were violated by Morgan Stanley, and in any event there is not even a legal issue at stake.

    Who cares how much money he was bringing in, or how much lobbying he did? Morgan Stanley last year earned almost $6 billion net. The cost of keeping a few former congressmen on their payroll is a rounding error. The goal of Morgan Stanley and other big businesses, especially the finance industry, is to send a message to current congressmen that if they do what big business wants while in office that they, too, have years and years of 7-figure paychecks in their future. There doesn't have to been any explicit quid pro quo, just a few winks and nods and maybe a visit while they're in office from some previous congressman who is now earning a 7-figure paycheck and they'll quickly get the idea.

    Incidentally, Harold Ford Jr seems to be barely black. Given that he's married to a white woman I doubt his children will look black at all, though I'm certain they'll be taught to identify as black whenever it serves their interests.

    The top half of the boomers consists of men who entered the workforce before the first big wave of women entered the job market. A boomer born 1945 graduated from college in 1967, and large-scale female employment didn't start to occur until the mid-1970s, almost a decade later. Older boomer males entered what was then a very stag workplace except for female secretaries, and many of them reached adulthood without being taught a drop about women's liberation either in school or by their peers, parents, or siblings. Some never learned how to behave properly in the workplace towards female colleagues. The old term 'sexist pig' is quite apt in describing their innate attitudes towards women. It was the younger cohort of the boomers, those born around 1955-1964, who was the first to enter the workplace directly with working women and who adjusted to the reality of their presence.

    I’m predicting problems with MLK statues and “boulevards.” Feminists have completely unhitched themselves from progressives, so anything will be fair game.

    And given how vague and non-violent many of the accusations have been against men, is the behavour of women, towards men in the workplace that they are interested in, and towards women who have been harassed, going to remain completely off limits?

    I think it would be a good idea to start on a database of everybody who is anybody: Who they have dated and married, exactly how and when they met, was there an initial rejection and then perserverence, who their parents and siblings are and ditto with them, and so on. It’s hard to believe that anyone could ever find a romantic partner under the apparent rules of engagement that are now being put forth. So let’s unveil the degree of hypocrisy that exists.

    And when they don't even list the "inappropriate behavior", that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don't have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like "what is the best thing about a blow job?" "It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings"; to my personal favorite, stating, "you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!".

    "requiring Ivy League schools to use GPA and SAT scores only for determining admission."

    I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords.

    Using SATs/GPA (ie 'academic merit') to determine admissions can actually reduce the white enrolment % because it so greatly increases the east-Asian %. But it also creates a level playing field which gives a working class Heartland Scots-Irish white youth a small but still much better chance of admission to the Ivy League than under the current discrimination-based system, which highly favours New York Jews and rich white Legacies as well as the Affirmative Action beneficiaries, to the detriment of ordinary whites.

    But the biggest benefit of ending AA is that eliminating it massively reduces racial hate/resentment from the beneficiaries, who find themselves in over their heads, less competent than their peers, and easy meat for Marxist professors' "Structural Racism" arguments ton explain their failings. AA is a great way to radicalise students, just as Marcuse wanted.

    Very true. And that’s what so many people commenting here get wrong. Prior to Ferguson and the last 2 years of Obama’s administration the gender divide was greater than the racial divide, and the sex panic is making it thusly again. It is easier to empathize with other males than feminists.

    That's funny. I actually am an old Hare Krishna (Visvatma Dasa) who joined in the 70s because it was one of the few 'hip' groups who kept feminists and women in their place. Then mid-80s the HK 'fall of the gurus' led to a feminist/sociologist takeover (now the women dance at the front and lead). I am online because I'm an old school conservative (the Hares are a bit like Amish) and Steve's logic and insights are the way we used to talk back when men were allowed to talk freely. Before we gave women 'social media' to control us with. Will men never learn?

    Is anyone in California talking about this potential ethnic cleansing in Los Angeles?

    Illegals? No, more likely the same folks who started fires in 1965 and 1992, if it is intentional.

    Who cares how much money he was bringing in, or how much lobbying he did? Morgan Stanley last year earned almost $6 billion net. The cost of keeping a few former congressmen on their payroll is a rounding error. The goal of Morgan Stanley and other big businesses, especially the finance industry, is to send a message to current congressmen that if they do what big business wants while in office that they, too, have years and years of 7-figure paychecks in their future. There doesn’t have to been any explicit quid pro quo, just a few winks and nods and maybe a visit while they’re in office from some previous congressman who is now earning a 7-figure paycheck and they’ll quickly get the idea.

    Incidentally, Harold Ford Jr seems to be barely black. Given that he’s married to a white woman I doubt his children will look black at all, though I’m certain they’ll be taught to identify as black whenever it serves their interests.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Ford_Jr.

    On 4 November, 1999, Ford voted in favor of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act,[15]. This act repealed much of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933, which had been enacted to prevent any one organization from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company. The resulting repeal allowed many banks and insurance companies to gamble with money raised from savings and checking bank accounts or insurance policies. Several economists, notably Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, point to the repeal of Glass–Steagall as helping to create the conditions of the 2007 financial crisis.[16][17]
     
    The Clintonistas replaced lots of older pro-working class Black congressmen with simple shills with their hands out. For example Barbara Jordan was replaced with Shelia Jackson Lee. That way you had lots of black congresscritters voting for NAFTA, Chnia PNTR, Open Borders, Glass-Steagall repeal....

    However in the case of Harold Ford Jr it was simply a case of the rotten apple not falling far from its tree.

    Don’t see it. The problem is the power skirts in the office. These women are totally poisonous and nuts. It’s proving that women have no place in the corporate workforce.

    It’ not their fault. It’s a lie promoted by many people from college administrators, high school counselors, intellectuals of various stripes from the HBD set to feminazis.

    IOW if you’re looking for people to blame look at every idiot out there yapping about how important college is and why it’s important to be in the corporate world. They created this mess. They put women in where they don’t belong. They also helped wreck the notion of marriage, family, tribe and community.

    I hope this legion of venomous power skirts bring down the entire rotting system. It deserves no less.

    What we are really seeing is the culling of feminist instincts from the gene pool. Some important habits and traits can be learned, but when nature has to do so it prefers to hardwire them into the genetic code. Prior to safe and effective birth control and abortion having sex meant having children. Now it doesn’t. The development of both means that the gene pool will increasingly skew to favor women (and men) who want not only sex but who want children, as well, while feminists will increasingly be relegated to the minority. In most ways feminism will soon become a historical footnote.

    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.



    And when they don't even list the "inappropriate behavior", that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don't have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like "what is the best thing about a blow job?" "It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings"; to my personal favorite, stating, "you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!".

    So far, every time more information comes out, it turns out the accused was lying and trying to cover up a lot of bad behavior. When I hear an employer just gives the bounce to someone, I assume it has more reasons that it’s not talking about.

    Millennial men, who by and large are more careful about sexual harassment due to recent college-level indoctrination, have better immunity to these charges despite their younger and more urgent sex drive.
    This play is clearing out old Boomer wood for next generation and impatient Millennials to take over. We just don't know their names yet.

    The top half of the boomers consists of men who entered the workforce before the first big wave of women entered the job market. A boomer born 1945 graduated from college in 1967, and large-scale female employment didn’t start to occur until the mid-1970s, almost a decade later. Older boomer males entered what was then a very stag workplace except for female secretaries, and many of them reached adulthood without being taught a drop about women’s liberation either in school or by their peers, parents, or siblings. Some never learned how to behave properly in the workplace towards female colleagues. The old term ‘sexist pig’ is quite apt in describing their innate attitudes towards women. It was the younger cohort of the boomers, those born around 1955-1964, who was the first to enter the workplace directly with working women and who adjusted to the reality of their presence.

    This calls to mind a thought I have not seen elsewhere: the extent to which white people are *required* for globalism to work.

    The entire global infrastructure that allows a very select few to become unbelievably wealthy, to rent-seek away the fortunes of the masses, needs the legal and physical infrastructure of the white world.

    That dam in California, to me, exemplifies what I mean. Eventually, the literal physical infrastructure keeping the world afloat is no longer going to keep up. Brown people are not going to maintain it, just like they can't in Africa or India after colonialism.

    I think the electronic infrastructure is equally vulnerable. Just look at what happens to businesses like Equifax when you have a small group of third world-ers controlling the IT systems (whether in India or as immigrants to the US).

    And maybe no other system or process requires as much NAM ingenuity than our current model for global agriculture. We have to mine valuable resources just to produce the fertilizer that makes monocrop culture work.

    How Many Black Male Democrat Bigshots Will be Left When This Is Over?

    You’re joking, right? Harold Ford, Jr lost his job because he’s in private industry, not Congress.

    In Congress the net effect will be absolutely zero. John Conyers resigned because, like Mugabe, he’s a million years old and doesn’t have the energy to fight. He will be replaced by a another black dude. Any black man in Congress who is still under 80 y.o. would refuse to resign, run for reelection, and win, since most come from districts where blacks are the majority. And the Democratic Party will let them keep their committee chairmanships regardless of what they’ve done because they need the black vote.

    Outside of their majority-minority reservations blacks just plain don’t win (except for empty suits like Obama) because their politics are so ridiculously out of step with the rest of America.

    The overall ratio of representatives to senators is 4.35 to 1.

    There are 22 Jews in the House and 8 in the House – a 3-1 ratio.

    There are 12 Asians in the House and 2.5 in the Senate (Kamala Harris is the half) – a 5-1 ratio.

    There are 36 Hispanics in the House and 3.5 in the Senate (Ted Cruz is the half) – a 10-1 ratio.

    There are 45 blacks in the House…and 2.5 in the Senate (Harris again) – an 18-1 ratio.

    But the House to Senate ratio of black Democrats is even worse. There are 44 black Democrats in the House and only 1.5 in the Senate – a ratio of 30-1.

    "But it came after a woman who did not work at the firm accused Mr. Ford of acting inappropriately in a professional setting"


    Apparently, a presumably anonymous charge, from some one who doesn't actually work there, resulted in the immediate firing of a man who evidently didn't get a hearing at all, let alone an impartial one?


    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.



    And when they don't even list the "inappropriate behavior", that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don't have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like "what is the best thing about a blow job?" "It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings"; to my personal favorite, stating, "you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!".

    Very true. And that's what so many people commenting here get wrong. Prior to Ferguson and the last 2 years of Obama's administration the gender divide was greater than the racial divide, and the sex panic is making it thusly again. It is easier to empathize with other males than feminists.

    That’s funny. I actually am an old Hare Krishna (Visvatma Dasa) who joined in the 70s because it was one of the few ‘hip’ groups who kept feminists and women in their place. Then mid-80s the HK ‘fall of the gurus’ led to a feminist/sociologist takeover (now the women dance at the front and lead). I am online because I’m an old school conservative (the Hares are a bit like Amish) and Steve’s logic and insights are the way we used to talk back when men were allowed to talk freely. Before we gave women ‘social media’ to control us with. Will men never learn?

    Who cares how much money he was bringing in, or how much lobbying he did? Morgan Stanley last year earned almost $6 billion net. The cost of keeping a few former congressmen on their payroll is a rounding error. The goal of Morgan Stanley and other big businesses, especially the finance industry, is to send a message to current congressmen that if they do what big business wants while in office that they, too, have years and years of 7-figure paychecks in their future. There doesn't have to been any explicit quid pro quo, just a few winks and nods and maybe a visit while they're in office from some previous congressman who is now earning a 7-figure paycheck and they'll quickly get the idea.

    Incidentally, Harold Ford Jr seems to be barely black. Given that he's married to a white woman I doubt his children will look black at all, though I'm certain they'll be taught to identify as black whenever it serves their interests.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Ford_Jr.

    On 4 November, 1999, Ford voted in favor of the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act,[15]. This act repealed much of the Glass–Steagall Act of 1933, which had been enacted to prevent any one organization from acting as any combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and an insurance company. The resulting repeal allowed many banks and insurance companies to gamble with money raised from savings and checking bank accounts or insurance policies. Several economists, notably Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz, point to the repeal of Glass–Steagall as helping to create the conditions of the 2007 financial crisis.[16][17]

    The Clintonistas replaced lots of older pro-working class Black congressmen with simple shills with their hands out. For example Barbara Jordan was replaced with Shelia Jackson Lee. That way you had lots of black congresscritters voting for NAFTA, Chnia PNTR, Open Borders, Glass-Steagall repeal….

    However in the case of Harold Ford Jr it was simply a case of the rotten apple not falling far from its tree.

    the endpoint is that guys who are producing $85,000/year of value for the company, while only costing $65,000/year are immunized from this nonsense.

    But Ford was producing a fractional amount of value at a high cost. So, he’s disposable the first time there’s even a hint of a ruckus.

    If Harold Ford Jr had accepted a position as Morgan Stanley’s Deputy Assistant Vice President for Janitorial Staffing, no one would have cared when he got accused of trying to feel up a chick at a convention in Vegas, of Janitorial Management Executives

    The last decade or so has been one humiliation after another for the feminists. There was Hillary’s failure in 2008. Then eight years of being completely sidelined while the media relentlessly pushed the race agenda. They endured the extreme humiliation of having to accept that a man wearing a frock was magically transformed into a woman and was thereby entitled to all the privileges reserved for women. And then there was Hillary’s 2016 election fiasco.

    The heterosexual feminists are really angry but they’re also desperate. They’re desperate to regain their favoured place in the Coalition of the Fringes. They’ve been completely overshadowed by the LGBT mafia and now find themselves at the absolute bottom of the heap. Even the lesbians have lost much of their power and influence to the trannies.

    So they’re lashing out, but they’ve lost so much power that they can only lash out at soft targets. Which means heterosexual white men. The extent of their hysteria is a measure of just how worried they are that they might never regain the power and influence they once had. They need to win a battle. They really really need to win a battle.

    Chamberlain is only a disaster if you think fighting Germany in 1939 was a good idea. In which case Baldwin, who laid the foundations for Britain's relative* military weakness in the late 30s, is as big a villain.

    Britain fought and bankrupted herself to prevent Germany having hegemony over Europe and the Low Countries (Holland, Belgium). Seventy years after the war Germany has hegemony over Europe and the Low Countries.

    If the UK leaves the EU it'll be interesting to see how "the EU" (effectively Germany) deals this time with uppity Poles and Hungarians who don't want Merkel's Millions in their countries. This time the UK has far fewer economic and military assets to back up a new version of Chamberlain's Polish Guarantee, which is what got us into WW2.

    ” there is no way it’s going to be the fissure issue among non-whites”

    In the UK every headscarf is pushing a pushchair/stroller, with another one or two kids in tow.

    This summer we did a guided holiday for the first time (Far East/Burma) and it turned out the two of us had more kids than the other 7 people in the group put together, all of whom were either single or divorced white 50/60-somethings.

    Demography is destiny, and non-white women will stand by the fathers of their children.

    Oh, c'mon. There's always Neville Chamberlain.

    Chamberlain is only a disaster if you think fighting Germany in 1939 was a good idea. In which case Baldwin, who laid the foundations for Britain’s relative* military weakness in the late 30s, is as big a villain.

    Britain fought and bankrupted herself to prevent Germany having hegemony over Europe and the Low Countries (Holland, Belgium). Seventy years after the war Germany has hegemony over Europe and the Low Countries.

    If the UK leaves the EU it’ll be interesting to see how “the EU” (effectively Germany) deals this time with uppity Poles and Hungarians who don’t want Merkel’s Millions in their countries. This time the UK has far fewer economic and military assets to back up a new version of Chamberlain’s Polish Guarantee, which is what got us into WW2.

    How long will it be before men start making sexual harassment claims against Obama?

    He is obviously at least bi-sexual and has undoubtedly had numerous sexual encounters with men over the years. His pockets are now very deep.

    Most introverts like Obama are not promiscuous, I would think.

    The way is being paved low-T ABCs to take over the Democratic Party. They will keep an eye on China’s heavy investments in US technology and real estate. They will also pass legislation allowing unlimited immigration from the PRC and requiring Ivy League schools to use GPA and SAT scores only for determining admission.

    “requiring Ivy League schools to use GPA and SAT scores only for determining admission.”

    I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords.

    Using SATs/GPA (ie ‘academic merit’) to determine admissions can actually reduce the white enrolment % because it so greatly increases the east-Asian %. But it also creates a level playing field which gives a working class Heartland Scots-Irish white youth a small but still much better chance of admission to the Ivy League than under the current discrimination-based system, which highly favours New York Jews and rich white Legacies as well as the Affirmative Action beneficiaries, to the detriment of ordinary whites.

    But the biggest benefit of ending AA is that eliminating it massively reduces racial hate/resentment from the beneficiaries, who find themselves in over their heads, less competent than their peers, and easy meat for Marxist professors’ “Structural Racism” arguments ton explain their failings. AA is a great way to radicalise students, just as Marcuse wanted.

    Commenter Cortes asks what other values, besides profitability, Morgan Stanley has.

    Whenever some company fires somebody for “conduct inconsistent with our values”, it is curious that those values are not listed in the news article reporting the firing. What values of Morgan Stanley did Harold Ford not comply with? Doing a search on “Morgan Stanley values”, we find

    https://www.morganstanley.com/about-us/morgan-stanley-core-values

    , which lists their core values as: Putting clients first, Doing the right thing, Leading with exceptional ideas, Giving back. (There is no list of Morgan Stanley’s non-core values.) Did Harold Ford not put a client first? Did he do a wrong thing? Did he not lead with two or more exceptional ideas? Did he not give back (what to whom)? Details, please!

    You know, for all we talk about race, I occasionally wonder if gender isn’t going to turn out to be the real fissure issue of the upcoming decades, eclipsing race.
     
    Of course it is the bigger fissure. People are programmed to overvalue women, but to dislike other races of humans.

    Race obsession attracts the intellectually lazy who refuse to moderize their thoughts to 21st century realities.

    The dominant ideology of the US is female-centrism.

    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law
     
    That's the most important issue here; we're watching the emergence of a parallel system of "justice" that, as you say, is unconstrained by any of those rules of procedure that together constitute the Anglosphere's greatest contribution to civilization.

    This new system can't jail you or execute you, but it can end your career, ruin your reputation, and nullify elections. That's quite a bit right there, I'd say.

    I believe that if people felt the old American Justice System worked properly they would use it. Citizens know there is nothing just about American Justice, and little legal about it either. We are all living in one big frontier cow town, and when the sheriff works for the large ranchers this post-modern vigilante-ism is to be expected.

    Pretty sure bored identity was referring to the sartorial predilections of the gentleman at the left of the photo.

    The upshot is that with all the lecherous Jewish and black guys out of the way, DeRay's future in the Democratic Party is so bright, he's gotta wear shades. He's not a national candidate for public office, and probably couldn't even get elected to a House seat in Baltimore (he's openly gay, not helpful if you need the Black Church Lady vote to win a primary), but he's likely to be a highly visible Person of Color for years to come.

    Another thing, which I scarcely see mentioned anywhere, is that when you throw out the Rule of Law, globalism collapses.
    Almost all of the globalist billionaires have "wealth" that exists almost ENTIRELY as electronic data. What MAKES this into actual wealth is the rule of law, and the relation of law to the government guys with guns.
    Even the billionaires who to some degree control hard assets would not have nearly as much "wealth" if they were not relying on the legal system, and most especially the legal system of the United States.

    This calls to mind a thought I have not seen elsewhere: the extent to which white people are *required* for globalism to work.

    The entire global infrastructure that allows a very select few to become unbelievably wealthy, to rent-seek away the fortunes of the masses, needs the legal and physical infrastructure of the white world.

    That dam in California, to me, exemplifies what I mean. Eventually, the literal physical infrastructure keeping the world afloat is no longer going to keep up. Brown people are not going to maintain it, just like they can’t in Africa or India after colonialism.

    I think the electronic infrastructure is equally vulnerable. Just look at what happens to businesses like Equifax when you have a small group of third world-ers controlling the IT systems (whether in India or as immigrants to the US).

    And maybe no other system or process requires as much NAM ingenuity than our current model for global agriculture. We have to mine valuable resources just to produce the fertilizer that makes monocrop culture work.

    Apparently, a presumably anonymous charge, from some one who doesn't actually work there, resulted in the immediate firing of a man who evidently didn't get a hearing at all, let alone an impartial one?


    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.



    And when they don't even list the "inappropriate behavior", that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don't have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like "what is the best thing about a blow job?" "It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings"; to my personal favorite, stating, "you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!".

    you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.

    You make some good conjectures, but just so we’re clear on the fundamental sexual calculus that underlies all this: the sex with the small, cheap, vastly plentiful, disposable gametes is itself relatively disposable. It struggles, often violently, to distinguish itself in order to gain access to the sex with the large, nourishing, scarce and precious gametes. That is how life for a sexual species IS.

    Under the Law of the Jungle, the ratio of reproductive age women to men goes up, not down. At root – heh – civilization itself is an implicit pact between men to avoid violence and preserve value by sharing women according to rational male standards, not the bad boy standards of women.

    Poor old Al - a victim of bad timing.

    Don't be fooled. Franken's forced departure - a supposed come-to-Jesus moment that suddenly hit all the (white) Senate Dems simultaneously - may fulfill a desire to regain the "moral high ground" over the GOP, but it's primarily a function of him getting caught at the same time as the black "icon", Conyers.

    Imagine if they cut the white guy some slack but (cough) tar and feather the poor black "icon". Baaad news - might cause unrest. Better to virtue signal to the Black Caucus and cut bait than to protect the throwaway, eminently replaceable white boy.

    Due process indeed. Much as I vehemently dislike Franken (I thought comedians were supposed to be, you know, funny) he's getting a raw deal here.

    I’ve got $10 that says Franken never leaves. He changes his mind after some “soul searching” and pleas from feminists to stay and “fight the good fight”.

    I mean to say, we've had highly effective female rulers in history, from Zenobia and Boudicca to Thatcher. But all of them were arguably harder than the men were, beating the boys at their own game and being even more ruthless at pursuing national interests absent sentimentality. A major political party in a nuclear superpower openly embracing effeminacy (of the increasingly pseudo-aggressive and dysfunctional 21st Century America sort) is something else altogether.

    I mean to say, we've had highly effective female rulers in history, from Zenobia and Boudicca to Thatcher. But all of them were arguably harder than the men were, beating the boys at their own game and being even more ruthless at pursuing national interests absent sentimentality. A major political party in a nuclear superpower openly embracing effeminacy (of the increasingly pseudo-aggressive and dysfunctional 21st Century America sort) is something else altogether.

    That's funny. I actually am an old Hare Krishna (Visvatma Dasa) who joined in the 70s because it was one of the few 'hip' groups who kept feminists and women in their place. Then mid-80s the HK 'fall of the gurus' led to a feminist/sociologist takeover (now the women dance at the front and lead). I am online because I'm an old school conservative (the Hares are a bit like Amish) and Steve's logic and insights are the way we used to talk back when men were allowed to talk freely. Before we gave women 'social media' to control us with. Will men never learn?

    I was never a member but I do admire them, love their way of doing things, and greatly respect them. You have to love how they’ve maintained community and carved out their own identity in a decaying America.

    Rumor: Washington Post has copies of non-disclosure agreements and checks to Planned Parenthood signed by the current president from ages ago, and they're running the "story" tomorrow.
    I am desolated. My support for Trump was always predicated on the belief that he was a vountarily celibate Southern Baptist preacher named Josiah. Don't ask me where I got that impression. Anyway, as the Constitution makes clear in the sex amendment, now it is Her Turn.
    I half believe this. Not because Trump was that active. I truly believe that the Bezos Blog really is this absolutely staggeringly clueless.

    The Left is still fighting the last war, mostly because they won it.

    Women, I guess. They seem hellbent on doubling-down on the same formula in 2020, and given the recent articles in the SJW-sphere, it seems as though "female" outclasses "black" in the Democratic Party these days. Though I wouldn't expect black males to start shifting to a position of neutrality, thanks to Trump's insanely stupid tax bill and going back on the "whole winding down the War On Drugs" thing.

    You know, for all we talk about race, I occasionally wonder if gender isn't going to turn out to be the real fissure issue of the upcoming decades, eclipsing race. It's an issue that strikes me as more existential in a fundamental sense. A male from a different tribe is still a fellow male in the end, after all, when it comes to understanding motivations and cutting dispassionate deals.

    The question then becomes whether or not this all represents the beginning of a seismic shift towards a matriarchal society. After all, the Left is always in search of a magic bullet that’ll produce utopia. In this case they will adopt the view that somehow a female dominated society will save us from ourselves. If it happens, when all is said and done it’ll still be business as usual down at the farm (or should I say “office”), except that it’ll be done by people in skirts, pantsuits and heels rather than three-piece suits and perforated wing tips. And, as usual, the skirts and pantsuits–just like the visions– will turn out to be as empty as the suits.

    Intersectionalism has its logical weaknesses that should tear it apart, but something just occurred to me. Since humans aren’t perfectly rational beings, it follows that the fissure may not operate in quite the way one might expect.

    For example, a surprisingly (to some) high percentage of women fantasize about rape, and 10% consider rape fantasy their “favorite” sexual fantasy.

    Of course, the thing about sexual fantasies is the “fantastic” element: they rarely play out as imagined, and rape particularly so, considering there is no element of input or control.

    It’s quite conceivable that white women, who of course are in contact with mostly white men (and therefore if they get raped it is still likelier to be a white man) will for some time play along with the Narrative game, turning their newfound sensitivity against the advances and minor offenses of *white* men…

    … while the objects of their fantasies are increasingly exotic, other, perceived as unlikely: in a word, black.

    This whole narrative is unsustainable at term, as soon as a white majority no longer exists to act as the scapegoat for the problems of all the oppressed. But I wouldn’t count the Coalition of the Fringes out just yet. It still has very bright, destructive days ahead of it.

    Not quite as simple as that. Among unmarried women, Corbyn absolutely dominated the vote share. Among old married women, vice versa. A good rule of thumb is that women either vote for "team women" (or whatever sounds 'nicest') or for team "her man", when she and her children are dependent on his income. Unfortunately, women are marrying at increasingly older ages, so they stay on 'team women' (and 'social justice'/redistribution) for much longer.

    Among men under 40, Labour and the Conservatives essentially drew. Labour won the U40 female vote by 15 points.

    It's not a new phenomena, but the young gender gap is becoming more pronounced.

    Ed West has done a good job in The Spectator of pointing out (with reference to our host) that family formation is necessary for the right to flourish, and it is being inhibited in the UK by our extortionate house prices and oversupply of graduates (and endemic low wages for the young, esp. young men). Age at first marriage is now over 30 for both men and women in the UK, and for families who will actually be responsible for providing their own resources, age at first child may be higher still (i.e. the average age of first birth around 28, but its a reasonable assumption that mothers dependent on the state tend to have children earlier).

    Young women also tend to be strongly pro-immigration - and may even consider restrictionist immigration policies racist - even as they are frustrated by high rents and the impossibility of owning. Go figure.

    Pretty sure bored identity was referring to the sartorial predilections of the gentleman at the left of the photo. He’s DeRay Mckesson, one of the more visible members/supporters of Black Lives Matter, has a cushy sinecure with the Baltimore public school system, and by his blue Patagonia sweater vests ye shall know him. Do a Google images search, and you’ll see what I mean.

    The upshot is that with all the lecherous Jewish and black guys out of the way, DeRay’s future in the Democratic Party is so bright, he’s gotta wear shades. He’s not a national candidate for public office, and probably couldn’t even get elected to a House seat in Baltimore (he’s openly gay, not helpful if you need the Black Church Lady vote to win a primary), but he’s likely to be a highly visible Person of Color for years to come. Think an ad campaign for The Gap, if that helps.

    "But it came after a woman who did not work at the firm accused Mr. Ford of acting inappropriately in a professional setting"


    Apparently, a presumably anonymous charge, from some one who doesn't actually work there, resulted in the immediate firing of a man who evidently didn't get a hearing at all, let alone an impartial one?


    Where do you think this all ends? Because when you throw out the Rule of Law, all of the carefully built up English common law which is the basis for our orderly and stable civilization, where the last several hundred years of Anglo-Saxon Polity are the ONLY orderly, stable civilization in human history, you end up with the Law of the Jungle, where few men, AND NO WOMEN, can manage to live.



    And when they don't even list the "inappropriate behavior", that leaves me wondering. Because that can cover everything from taking your sock off to blow your nose when you don't have a Kleenex; to slipping in a joke like "what is the best thing about a blow job?" "It is ten minutes of your life when a woman has to shut up about her feelings"; to my personal favorite, stating, "you know, Richard Nixon was one of our Greatest Presidents!".

    This is really quite an hysterical and silly comment.

    First of all, you can bet that Morgan Stanley knows a heck of a lot more about this situation than they’re saying in public. There is no need to tarnish the company’s image by revealing the salacious details of their employee’s misbehavior. Their PR people advised them to quickly get rid of the troublemaker and to stay mum about the specifics, and they were right.

    Second, since you were not a party to these events, neither as a victim of Harold Ford, Jr. nor as a client of Morgan Stanley nor as an employee of Morgan Stanley, you do not have the right to demand knowledge of his antics, nor does anyone have the obligation to provide you with knowledge of such.

    Third, the rule of law has absolutely nothing to do with any of this. Harold Ford, Jr. is not being prosecuted by the government. He was terminated by a private employer who had every right to fire him if they didn’t like what he was doing. Absolutely no laws were violated by Morgan Stanley, and in any event there is not even a legal issue at stake.

  148. Ironically the Dems may have got their latest feminisation strategy from the nationalist right in Europe. The US centre-left always like to keep abreast of goings on across the Atlantic, and they are probably quite impressed/alarmed that nationalist parties can attract lots of female voters by electing female leaders and softening their image.

    However, such a strategy may not work in reverse. The Dems already have a lot of female voters, and further pandering to women (especially white women) isn’t likely to be a big vote winner. In contrast European nationalist parties had very low numbers of female supporters in their early days so it has been pretty easy for them to boost their female support with re-branding.

    Total bullshit. Women are not our enemies, they are our comrades. Our mothers, our sisters, our wives, our daughters, our nieces, our cousins, our aunts–they all have legitimate concerns, and they should be listened to. The denizens of “Women’s Studies” departments are, of course, mostly damaged, delusional, not-too-intelligent people, just like academics in any “studies” department (African-American, Genocide, Gender, etc.). But none of the women in my life are like that, nor–I would wager–yours.

    Commenter Cortes asks what other values, besides profitability, Morgan Stanley has.

    Whenever some company fires somebody for "conduct inconsistent with our values", it is curious that those values are not listed in the news article reporting the firing. What values of Morgan Stanley did Harold Ford not comply with? Doing a search on "Morgan Stanley values", we find
    https://www.morganstanley.com/about-us/morgan-stanley-core-values
    , which lists their core values as: Putting clients first, Doing the right thing, Leading with exceptional ideas, Giving back. (There is no list of Morgan Stanley's non-core values.) Did Harold Ford not put a client first? Did he do a wrong thing? Did he not lead with two or more exceptional ideas? Did he not give back (what to whom)? Details, please!

    Maybe Ford violated unwritten uniform codes, the kind that Tom Wolfe wrote about in Bonfire. What would the clients think? He had to go back.

    Almost all of the globalist billionaires have "wealth" that exists almost ENTIRELY as electronic data. What MAKES this into actual wealth is the rule of law, and the relation of law to the government guys with guns.
    Even the billionaires who to some degree control hard assets would not have nearly as much "wealth" if they were not relying on the legal system, and most especially the legal system of the United States.

    Good point. Exhibit 1 is what’s happening in Saudi Arabia.
