From the Los Angeles Times:

For Democrats, all paths to the White House run through the House of Sharpton
By EVAN HALPER
APR 04, 2019 | 11:20 AM

A glimpse at the guest list for the Rev. Al Sharpton’s confab here this week would surely astonish any New Yorker arriving in a time machine from the 1980s. Every major Democrat who has launched a White House bid has cleared their schedule to get in front of the Reverend.

Few things once seemed more improbable, save perhaps for the White House being occupied by Donald Trump, who once competed with Sharpton for screaming tabloid headlines and airtime on what was then a nascent medium known as “trash TV.”

… The lifelong preacher and political bomb thrower, the man New York mayors once did not want in their city, much less near their offices, says it is not he who has changed, but the nation’s politics. …

Sharpton has deftly straddled the space between insider and outsider since elevating himself to the status of major player in Washington during the Obama years, when his street cred gained him regular West Wing access.

Candidates now publicly genuflect before him…

During the Obama presidency, Sharpton was welcomed in the White House more than 100 times. …

“I wanted access and I was given that access,” Sharpton said. “And at the same time, when the White House called me about Trayvon [Martin], I was leading the march that night. At the same time, I led the fight in Ferguson. I led the fight for Eric Garner,” who died at the hands of a police officer in Staten Island, N.Y.

“So if they are saying, ‘He stopped doing those things,’ not only did I keep doing them, a lot of these issues that became national concerns under Obama, I was the one leading. …

Sharpton rebuts accusations that his group is compromised by the corporate money it rakes in — Walmart and PepsiCo are among its many big donors — by arguing that King and Jackson enthusiastically partnered with such companies through Operation Breadbasket, an economic arm of the civil rights movement that Sharpton served as youth director.

The enthusiasm with which candidates seek Sharpton’s seal of approval is a favorite topic in right-wing media, which remind their audiences of his past stoking of racial tensions in cases such as that of Tawana Brawley, a teenager in Upstate New York who falsely claimed in 1987 that she was raped by four white men.

Opponents also point to incendiary comments Sharpton made amid riots in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood in the early 1990s, when some saw his words as fomenting anti-Semitic violence against Hasidic Jews.

… Those long-ago remarks where he talked about Crown Heights diamond merchants? He argues that he was making a point not about Jews, but apartheid, targeting only area jewelers selling diamonds distributed by a wealthy South African family.

    Does Sharpton have a lot of black reverends in his rolodex or what? I presume this conference is the one where every candidate gives Sharpton a thick stack of bills in promise for his help in turning out the back vote. Sharpton will undoubtedly promise to support each and every candidate in private while pocketing as much money as possible before having to make a commitment.

    Imagine being a member of a party where you have to kowtow to a guy like Sharpton to get anywhere. Sharpton: “Now, all of you have to publically come out in support reparations for blacks this election. By the way, I suggest you start with me.”

    Even my hardcore Democrat father speaks of Sharpton with contempt.

    The National Action Network is the black AIPAC

    … the corporate money it rakes in — Walmart and PepsiCo are among its many big donors — King and Jackson enthusiastically partnered with such companies through Operation Breadbasket … Sharpton served as youth director.

    Sharpton is a shakedown artist, like Jessie Jackson.

  4. I’m a little confused. What’s the actual play here for the Special People behind the curtain? The truth is, blacks and their increasingly tedious and operatic concerns could not be less relevant to the overall national mood. We have, in no particular order…

    1. The surging invasion on the southern border, and the complete impotence of POTATUS in the face of it;
    2. Asians and their inability to storm their way into 100 percent of Harvard seats, plus their stubborn refusal to build a Harvard of their own;
    3. The opioid/suicide epidemic killing Whites at a rate of an entire Vietnam body count per year;
    4. What congressional Muslims think about Jews, and what Jews think about what Muslims think about Jews, and what Jews think about Muslims openly talking about Jews;
    5. Donald Trump’s near-complete betrayal of his own base, and humiliating groveling before the agenda of GloboHomoShlomo;
    6. America creates jobs then gives them directly to foreigners;
    7. The Mystery Meat Ascendancy, as observed in the ongoing Internet censorship affair;
    8. The near-complete Jewish ripping off of the mask with respect to their overall ownership and control of America, coupled with their astonishing gloating contempt for it;
    9. $22 trillion in debt and no real plan to deal with it;
    10. No real, adult-style plan to deal with the national health-care crisis which Obamacare failed to fix;
    11. The dollar’s looming loss of reserve currency status;
    12. The country’s absurd military overextension and concomitant weakness, and no real plan to address it…

    That’s just off the top of my head.

    Nobody cares anymore about Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, BLM, or slabery. The national giggle over Jussie Smollett’s contemptuous nonsense is an indicator that no one really cares about Black Opression anymore period, because the plain truth is, blacks aren’t oppressed anymore in any realistic non-imaginary capacity. If you’re reduced to complaining about the statistical shortage of black Mathematics professors, that’s a clear sign you have nothing realistic to complain about. It ought to be a cause for celebration, frankly, but we all know why the volume went to eleven instead.

    Their failures are now their own, and it’s now clear to the rest of the country that they’re just keeping up the racism charade in order to avoid owning that obvious fact. They have no urgency nor relevance in the coming national crises, and no real agency without a little help from their Special friends, so the real question is…

    What are the Specials getting out of this?

    Yes, but it is not about all white men. It is about making certain that black political thought is always focused on hating whites who are not WASP Elites. Blacks are to hate working class and middle class whites; white farmers and small townspeople; white trash who ruined the environment by being coal miners or working of oil and gas pipelines; white cops and firemen; Irish and Polish and Italian and Croatian Catholics; Russian and Serbian Orthodox; Scots-Irish Southern Baptists; any whites who dare discover that it matters they have or could embrace another (non-WASP) white heritage that could be more conservative.

    If Sharpton were to start attacking the Pilgrim and Puritan Fathers and their direct progeny; the Boston Brahmins and their direct progeny; the natives of New England and New York and PA and the upper midwest who were super rich no later than the end of the Civil War and the period of Reconstruction and the final Indian wars; the Quakers and Unitarian-Universalists and Congregationalists and the rich Episcopalian and the Social Gospel Methodists, then he would be silenced.

    Is this actually true? Where’s his church?

    According to his own biographical information, Sharpton preached his first sermon at age 4. He was “ordained” in a Pentecostal church at age 10. He is a college dropout and has never attended a seminary or divinity school. I don’t believe he has ever been the head pastor of any church and has never been a primary preacher or spent time providing pastoral care to a congregation.

    Another comment compared him to Jesse Jackson and mentioned Operation Breadbasket, the business shakedown program Jackson started under the direction of Martin Luther King. Jackson hired a young Sharpton to be the “youth director” for Operation Breadbasket in 1969. Sharpton would have been 15 at the time, he figured out how to get in on the grift very early.

    President Trump has now endorsed the proposal to hike taxes on gasoline. Tucker Carlson says Trump may be sending a message that he does not want to win reelection in 2020, but something much bigger may be in play. New taxes on gas and diesel were the issue that served as the pretext for the launch of the Gilets Jaunes protests in France last November, which have been a political earthquake touching on much more than fuel prices — although the MSM is doing its best to muffle their impact, both in Europe and here in the US. Maybe Trump is prodding the Deplorables to follow the example of the French working-class and forgotten Gallic white people.

    Sharpton has power because most of America truly hates White men. Led by White women. Most White women are somewhere on the Jacinda Ardern spectrum.

    According to Wikipedia, which may or may not be reliable, about 1/4 of African Americans say Al Sharpton speaks for them.

    Assume these followers are more likely than most to vote in the Democratic primaries.

    Sharpton’s followers can make or break a candidacy. It is almost impossible to get the nomination without the lions share of the black vote. I think the last candidate to get the nomination with only white support was Dukakis. And he lost the election. I am not sure who was the last Democratic candidate to win the election without significant black support. I think it was Woodrow Wilson, who helped start the Second Klan.

  57. It’s Sharpton’s Democratic Party Now

    Hillary Clinton loves two things — Box Wine and Black Lady Voters.

    This Sharpton business of Sailer is squalid. Let us use the appropriate political term for what is happening in the Democrat Party. The right term is the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY.

    Brief bit from January of 2019:

    AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY — Hillary Clinton got clobbered in the 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary by Bernie Brooklyn Sanders, but Hillary knew she had lovely and sweet Black lady voters with beefy upper arms just waiting to bash Bernie’s brains out in South Carolina and other states.

    Tweets from 2015:

  58. Sharpton’s role as a kingmaker dates back to the 1989 NYC mayoral election. The incumbent mayor, Koch, despiser Sharpton and refused to ever meet with him.

    In 1989, Koch ran for a fourth term. A coalition of blacks, Hispanics and liberal whites formed around Dinkins. The odd man out was Herman Badillo, who had intended to run against Koch in 1985, but had the rug pulled out under him by a black NYC politician Denny Farrell.

    In 1989 there was a sad racial incident in Howard Beach, which led to a black kid chased by white “youths” to get fatally run over by a car. The black race hucksters told the parents that their kid’s death would lead to Dinkins being elected. To be fair, I did vote for Dinkins in both the primary and the general election. Trouble is, Dinkins was a terrible mayor and his support of the race hucksters divided the city. I rarely vote Republican, but I voted to Rudy in 1993.

    In 2001, it looked like the Democratic candidate, Green, would defeat the Republican candidate, Bloomberg.

    Then, 3 things happened. The NY Post made fun of Sharpton with a rather disgusting political cartoon. Green refused to kiss Sharpton’s behind and didn’t denounce the cartoon loudly enough.
    Then Green didn’t kiss Dinkins’ behind. Green said he didn’t know who the best recent mayor was. That infuriated Dinkins and his followers.
    Then, 9/11 happened and everything changed.

    Green lost.

    I no longer live in NYC, but the current mayor would never fail to kiss Sharpton’s behind.

    The last Democratic candidate to shun Sharpton and still win was Koch in 1985. Can’t be done anymore.

    And yet it is Sharpton, the voice of the dead victim of Jewish hate, who is to blame for the Crown Heights riots.

    He’s actually better than Jackson. Sharpton is very smart and he knows which way the wind is blowing and knows how to tack in that direction. He probably knows where every one of the the heads of all these corporations live and with a snap of his fingers could have his “army” at their doorsteps. These CEO’s want to keep their 10 acre estates so they will give Sharpton anything he wants so that they can keep him off their back. And he has succeeded very well. It is debatable how much power and cachet he really has and carries. It may be illusory –but as Alec Guinness’s King Faisal said in the movie Lawrence of Arabia “illusions can be very powerful. “

  74. While there are plenty of manifestations, i think the main reason things have gotten loonier and loonier is that a society piloted by Jewish minoritarianism is just an inherently unstable kludge … kind of like the 737 MAX.

    Plenty of us have wondered, “why don’t they just ease up a bit?” Or “does it really benefit them to turn us into Brazil?”

    But it’s hard to keep the minoritarian project flying smoothly.

    You find some Jewish “conservatives” like Bret Stephens who filled with genocidal rage–from pogroms or the holocaust or something–just don’t care. They want to fly this bitch right on down to Brazil. If it runs out of fuel and crashes … they don’t care. The Bret isn’t really an American, the passengers aren’t his people. He’ll bailout and swim to Israel if the thing is headed tits up. But Bret’s “die goyim! we’ll replace you with less odious serfs” ideology isn’t going to win many passenger votes.

    Then you’ve got more accurately termed “conservatives” like David Frum, who seem to be having 2nd thoughts about the course. While America isn’t really his country either, he realizes it’s been pretty great for the Jews, he has some family on the plane and has started suggesting we tilt the nose up and keep flying safely around the USA.

    But to keep the minoritarian project flying you really need engines kicking out some thrust. The thrust\justification being majority misbehavior. Without the thrust that the majority is bad, the minoritarian project stalls. And in America the only fuel for that is blacks–slavery, lynchings, Jim Crow. Jews manage to get themselves super excited about Harvard quotas and the Golfocaust, but to everyone else–not insanely tribal–that’s petty douchebaggery. So blacks, black grievances, are the fuel.

    But that’s the rub. Blacks are a very combustible fuel. They do rude, crazy, stupid, violent stuff all the time. And minoritarianism having ushered in the age of mass immigration blacks no longer just get compared to whites–with the “oppressed” cover–but get compared to other non-white minorities–Asians, but especially Mexicans most of whom had their families come here with nothing just a few decades or even a few years back. So minoritarian driven diversity is itself providing a comparative context which is not so great for the minoritarian narrative.

    Whites looking at black behavior in light of diversity and 50 years of civil rights are more and more likely to come to HBDish and culturish conclusions and think, “Hey some groups of people just do better than other groups”.

    But this sort of “hey wait a minute?” thinking driven by black dysfunction is very very dangerous. It pitches up the nose and threatens to stall the minoritarian project. Pretty soon whites start to think “hey our group isn’t bad.” Then it’s “hey, when you think about it we white gentiles have created the nicest nations on earth!–prosperous, peaceful, law-abiding.” Suddenly whites are cancelling their tickets on the MAX, reclaiming their Euro heritage and flying the much more stable A320.

    But the minoritarian project is both emotionally critical and extremely lucrative to left\establishment Jews and a lot of their fellow travellers. So something has to be done to handle these negative assessements of black behavior from stalling the project.

    Call it the Minority Assessment Control System (MACS).

    Anytime dysfunctional black behavior might have whites questioning minoritarianism or, God forbid, thinking white people are pretty good eggs, and minoritarianism might stall, MACS kicks in–“legacy of slavery”, “white privilege”, “redlining”, “invisible knapsack”, “microaggressions”, “stereotype threat”, “structural racism”–to push the nose down and keep minoritarianism speeding along.

    The problem is the sensors are hyper-sensitive and black dysfunction and white non-narrative compliant responses are omnipresent. So MACS is kicking in all the time… pushing our nose down further and further, again and again and threatening to fly us all into the ground.

    According to Wikipedia, which may or may not be reliable, about 1/4 of African Americans say Al Sharpton speaks for them.

If either of them ran, they’d be destroyed by the media and the GOPe.

    That’s what makes Trump so disappointing. He was the one guy in a million (billion) who had the personality and the charisma to take the nastiest slings of the media and GOPe, and still come out on top. He could have been a great one. Trump could have gone down in history among the likes of G. Washington had he delivered on the national question. Perhaps he still could, but I’m not holding my breath.

    FFS, the GOP is so f*cked up on taxes, cheap labor, intervention and that little middle eastern nation, they can’t even take advantage of the democrats becoming a national joke. That 40% of white voters feel it is better to be with Al Sharpton’s party than with the GOP is an indictment.

    I like Trump, but do understand he has a sensitive ego. The media knows this too. That is why they bandied about the term President Bannon in the months preceding Bannon leaving the WH. They knew that would get under Trump’s skin. They have tried doing this with Stephen Miller, but so far it has failed. So maybe Trump can control himself.

    With that in mind, what is the best way to get under Trump’s skin to get him to do what he promised? Ann Coulter tried to be blunt and routinely tweeted out the progress, or lack thereof, of the wall. Day after day she was the only one holding him to account. The result is that he tweeted some insult at her and half the base now hates her.

    Enter Tucker and his rant last night. Tucker pointed out Trump’s failings, but did so in a sympathetic way that suggested it really wasn’t his fault. That it was just too much for one man to take, and maybe Trump doesn’t even want to be reelected. And who could blame him?

    I know Trump watches Tucker because he often tweets about him. Maybe this is the best way to get to Trump. To criticize what has happened without insulting Trump personally. Therefore, I don’t think that potato head meme is going to work. It will probably upset Trump, and he will just tune those people out. I think if we are going to get Trump to come back to candidate Trump, we need to do the Tucker approach.

Guess what – there ain’t.

    Putting aside your Jew obsession, your laundry list of what’s wrong with America has a lot of validity but unfortunately a lot of those things tie in with America’s racial situation. The US is losing, or has already lost, it’s leading position in many fields (aviation seems poised to join the list) because of the browning of the population, which is synonymous with the stupidification of the population (and even for remaining whites, the curriculum has been dumbed down in the name of AA). Even the current immigrant situation came about because, freed from the need to do menial work by welfare and AA, employers no longer had access to a low wage black workforce, just as in Trinidad when slavery was abolished, the plantation owners brought in indentured servants from India. You have the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Immigration Act of 1965. What a coincidence.

    Back when college profs were poorly paid, they still didn’t take bribes to let students in. Now that profs are well-paid, they’re taking bribes right and left. When they started paying profs better, this attracted self-centered narcissists into the teaching profession who have no ethics except for doing well for themselves. No wonder colleges have become stuffed with profs who are convinced they are totally right, and any dissent from what they spell out is outrageous, and who shape their political philosphies with a finger to wind of the liberal party line .

I never would have predicted that blacks would get even more racist while whites are even more docile and weak than they were 25-30 years ago.

    For most of American history, education below the university level was not only considered not to be a Federal concern, in most places it wasn’t even a state level concern. It was all done at the local level. But we live in the age of Fascism – everything within the State, nothing without the State. Home schooling is dangerous because a few people might escape indoctrination. Capturing 99% of the population is not enough. It is necessary to hunt down all the stragglers.

    Ms. Monkey’s mistake was to attack someone with possible more Pokemon points than she had (white lady with spikey hairdo is still a white woman). If she had picked on a white Christian man she definitely would have outranked him and won the exchange. Such attacks are tricky nowadays like when Roseanne Barr made the mistake of thinking that Valerie Jarrett was Iranian or something. Before you try something like this you had better check and double check that the racially ambiguous person you are attacking doesn’t have more Pokemon points than you do – a mistake could cost you your job.

    Part of what makes our current system such a beautiful poker match and not just a trivial children’s game is that the # of Pokemon points that anyone has can only be known with certainty in retrospect. Even as a black person you might try to go head to head with a guy only to find out that he is a tranny with an equal or greater # of points.

    Read what the Chinese guy says closely – in his mind (and in Chinese culture) what he was doing wasn’t a bribe (they have those too, but this wasn’t it). Rather, in Chinese culture you have the concept of guanxi indebtedness. This is sort of like favor banking – you do something nice for someone and they implicitly “owe you one” and the return favor is sort of blank check made out to you that you can cash in on some day (within reason – if you drive someone to the airport, they can’t ask you to kill someone for them later on). Like in the Godfather where the undertaker owes the Godfather a favor to be determined because the Godfather arranges to have his daughter’s abusers beaten up. So Chinese are surprisingly eager to do favors for you – to them it is like money in the bank which you can withdraw someday, with interest. There’s no explicit enforcement mechanism but the expectation is that you will keep trading favors back and forth, maybe even for a lifetime, but once you welsh then the relationship is broken and you can’t expect them to do any more favors for you.

    I was wondering when they’d come for Virgin over their pin-up models on the side of the planes (and spaceships). I can see why some would call a risqué pin-up model inappropriate for a major airline. But weirdly the solution was to replace the very English-looking redhead with a black woman in the same pose. (except the flag isn’t pulling her leotard suggestively)

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/virgin-reveals-new-figures-that-reflect-modern-britain/

    The redhead will be completely phased out by the black woman, black man and gay white man. (yes, he is drawn ‘gay’ with some rainbow colouring to his legs, I honestly laughed when I saw him and had to check it wasn’t from April 1st)

    Perhaps an example of Sailer’s law since the original was sexist but the new one that is the same but with a black woman isn’t, presumably because celebrating a black woman with an afro as the equal to a white pin-up in sex appeal is highly progressive.

    This is also coming along as the Virgin HR division has gone full crazy and in the current era like with the college professor who couldn’t respond to a screaming black student, couldn’t be challenged by ‘old white men’ executives.

    I have my own theory about articles like this. I think their purpose – certainly for appearing at the week’s close – is to chip chip chip away at the psyche, and emotional well-being, of the remaining white folks who still give a shit about being white folks. Particularly as they seem to respond to narrative-failure moments in the far-left/SJW/Coalition of the Fringes version of events.

    So the Covington kids are exonerated of the bogus charges against them – and they respond by doubling down their hatred of those boys. So the Russian Collusion story, which any honest person with at least a middling two-digit IQ has known was horse-puckey for three years now, collapses into flimflam dust – and they respond by tripling down, fingers jammed in both ears. Likewise, the Jussie Smollett and AOC-torpedoes-the-Amazon-deal stories land with colossal/disastrous thuds….and are furiously swept under the national media rug just as quickly as another distraction can be cooked up, while the respective bunco artist and public-policy pyromaniac responsible have their reputations rehabilitated without even a media time-out to indicate some form of even momentary public disgrace…..as if they never happened at all.

    In the meantime, and this is key, free-speech venues on and off the Internet are relentlessly persecuted, hounded and driven into the outer darkness, even if due to the most reactionary sorts of technicalities (Charlottesville causes VDare to lose their funding platform just because, etc). The idea is to reinforce, and re-reinforce, an inescapable reality in which Up is Down, Black is White, Bad ids Good, and no one has a public space in which to fume, vent, or holler for a time-out or a do-over….not a legal one at any rate, at the rate things are going. The short-term goal is to break the white man’s will to resist The Great Replacement, because 60 million targets (all isolated from one another, too exhausted to push back and too honest to effectively out-connive these bastards) is vastly more preferable than one target, 60 million strong. Little political analyses and op-eds like the above turning up on Thursday and Friday editions of national agitprop broadsheets are just little ice-pick jabs delivered to better remind us that You Can’t Win, We’ll Never Stop This and It Ain’t Murder If We Drive You To Suicide, Elmer.

    The long-term goal, of course, is The Great Replacement. Which stopped being “paranoid schizophrenia” along about the time that Congress “relaxed” the rules set in place protecting the American public from media cross-ownership….a “relaxation” that has only been cemented into place in the 25+ years since.

    maybe Trump doesn’t even want to be reelected

    Thanks for bringing Tucker’s April 4th 2019 monologue to my attention —

    Here is a FoxNews-hosted Youtube version of the monologue [3m40]:

    Tucker’s monologue’s often follow a kind of arc: [1] a wind-up, followed by [2] a punch-line, then a [3] longer commentary on why Beltway Insiders are out of touch and/or bad for Middle America, finishing with a [4] restatement of the punch-line in terms of the longer commentary just concluded.

    Here is the [2] in the April 4, 2019 monologue:

    If the president did all that, the message would be very clear: He has no idea what he ran on in 2016; he just wants out.

    I agree that this is a good line.

    Tucker may have squandered it, though, by couching it in terms of an appeal to stop this “gas tax” instead of the much-more-consequential things he glosses over in the first minute of the monologue. Admittedly, all the “glossed-over” things (many of which are covered by excellent comment by The Germ Theory of Disease near the top of this comments thread) are major recurring themes of Tucker. But in the context of this monologue, they were detached.

    Am I alone in thinking this opposition to the gas tax is a pathetic rear-guard action of a defeated force? A fall-back into the safe embrace of tax-oppositionist Conservatism Inc.?

    I hereby propose to the Tucker producers reading this, if any, to make Does Trump Want to Lose a nightly feature of the show, with content determined by the latest sign/signal.

    ___________

    Caveat: Checking against the full-show version, I see that the “Trump doesn’t want to be re-elected” monologue was not in the vaunted Opening Monologue (generally 8 PM to 8:05 PM, presumably with highest viewership and/or attention), but was crammed in at about 8:20 PM, judging by its 15:15 timestamp in the full-episode Youtube version (a link unlikely to survive long). The opening monologue had in it more-characteristic appeals to a soft form of nationalism, i.e., the conventional wisdom of “CurrentYear minus 25,”and sometimes up to CurrentYear minus 50.

    It’s like being a coach or manager. You know which players respond to yelling and which don’t. You know which ones respond to reason and which don’t. By now it’s clear that if you want to get somewhere with Trump, you can’t insult the guy like Coulter did.

They’re fine with Israelis sterilizing black African women without their knowledge or consent, locking up Arabs for “rape” when they bang Jewish broads by claiming to be Jewish, shooting unarmed Palestinian women in the back, grabbing Palestinian land, shelling Arab population centers, etc., etc., etc.

    (They staff and fund the Jewish Lobby (AIPAC is only the tip of the very broad spear), ADL, etc. Somewhere in there they forgot to create, staff, and fund anything like that for Whites, though. Almost as if they don’t see themselves as White.)

    Stateside, though, whole different story: keep a tranny out of the girls’ bathroom, or a homo from becoming a Boy Scout leader, or refuse to bake a sodomite cake, and watch them mobilize for war. A White kid smiles at an Injun and he should be “fed into a woodchipper,” but that kind of rage never finds it way toward the Jewish Ethnostate.

    It’s like being a coach or manager. You know which players respond to yelling and which don’t.

    At some point, a problem player needs to be cut from the team.

    Trump has shown himself to be petty and unprincipled. The ‘petty’ is excusable, but the ‘unprincipled’ is not. I see (sadly) no redeeming value of the entire movement at this point, but of course hope to be wrong, hope he does pull a nation-saving Deus Ex Machina rabbit out of a hat, somehow, and soon. (I see only indications of the opposite.)

    A thought on why Tucker and Lou Dobbs do not attack him the way they would Hillary (whose governing on the ‘National Question’ would probably be at no worse, at most):

    They perceive their positions of relative power and influence to be precarious and dependent upon Fox News. They are not just paid by Fox News to be “pro R Team, anti D Team” cheerleaders, but their entire position of relative prestige and power is dependent thereon (they believe). They cannot go off-script too far. This preexisting dynamic is reinforced by the fact that Trump is a known watcher of both shows, as you point out.

    Ann Coulter, meanwhile, is a much more independent actor. If Tucker had Ann’s independence of action, he might be just as critical (recall his Trump bashing in the obscure interview with the Swiss newspaper a few months ago), if less shrill about it.

    Typical liar. Twisting the truth. Your buddies call it “spinning” the truth. If there ever was an obvious murder by cop, this one is. You are just doing the typical mediascum spin to alter the facts.

    Here’s how it goes. You love cops. So you will go to any lengths to rationalize the murders they regularly commit. It’s understandable. Love is a strong emotion. Easily excited by those snazzy uniforms.

    To be fair, angry blacks attacked the Jewish ambulance workers when they showed up on the scene. Taking or treating the injured black girl was never an option for them. The real Jewish offense came earlier: the reason for the accident was that Jewish drivers in this rabbi’s entourage had gotten into the habit of jumping red lights. The police routinely let them get away with it because of the political fallout that came from trying to arrest them.

    Yes, that is the essence of it. I would add a few side bars:
    1. You need religious fervor to make people go along with this craziness. Sacred black bodies are the new Jesus nailed to the cross, suffering forever. Liberal worship of sacred black bodies and holy lesbian vaginas is a logical development of Christian moral pity combined with hatred of the strong – the liberal mind set.
    2. Yes it’s all about the Jews, and it’s also all about the money. This project of dividing and conquering the gentiles goes hand in hand with corporate corrupt capitalism out of control.
    3. As you note the Jews are not infallible pilots. However successful they have been at taking over our politics and making boobs out of us hillbillies, the Jews are not wise. Their hubris can be their downfall.

    Muslims. The article doesn’t mention them, but in Britain it’s Muslims who are pulling their children out of the state schools, because they don’t like the homo/feminist stuff that is increasingly taught in them. And these kids aren’t being taught at ‘home’ but in secret Muslim schools that are off the radar of the state and education authorities. That point about parents pulling their kids out of school to go on holidays in ‘hot climates’ is a also veiled reference to the Muslim habit of taking their kids to Pakistan etc. during Ramadan (i.e. when the kids are supposed to be studying for exams).

    Usually if you get any personal insight to these people, it turns out that their proclaimed professional credentials are thin or non-existent and that their actual means of support is a trust fund, spouse (perhaps same-sex) or grift of some sort or another.

    AnotherDad, you really must be just about the best commenter here. – you’re prolific, insightful, daring, and excel at putting thoughts into words and metaphors.

    So minoritarian driven diversity is itself providing a comparative context which is not so great for the minoritarian narrative.

    Yes – one of the few good things about the vastly increased diversity of the last 30 or so years is that it provides an everyday comparative context of non-European races/cultures, ALL of whose behavior and norms – even Hispanics, really – make clear just how singular and extreme black dysfunction and inability is.

    This huge new pool of non-Europeans (plus, of course, the pitiful state of black culture half a century after the civil rights revolution) must be making it embarrassingly plain to everyone, white and non-white, just how strange a case the Africans are, and that their problems in truth are very largely of their own making.

    The project will roll on no doubt because, as you say, it’s being purposefully piloted by smart and determined people and has become profitable to many, but privately the real truth must be clearer and clearer to almost everyone at some level. And that’s not nothing. In the long run it may even matter.

    Back when college profs were poorly paid, they still didn’t take bribes to let students in. Now that profs are well-paid, they’re taking bribes right and left. When they started paying profs better, this attracted self-centered narcissists into the teaching profession who have no ethics except for doing well for themselves…

    It takes a genuine narcissist to say to a rich guy or a celebrity, “Your kid just being your offspring isn’t good enough anymore. Do you think this is still 1970? What else do you have to offer me? I want cold, hard cash.”

    We’d get rid of them if we cut prof salaries back to just above the survival rate again.

    I wouldn’t disagree with your point that higher pay (& job security) for teachers has had a corrupting effect on the profession, but, in the present context, I think that’s pretty incidental. I mean, it’s not professors of philosophy or classics or physics or mathematics who are getting bribed, here.

    That would be a devastating blow to the White population. Religious Whites are keeping our birthrates from going lower, and many of these people could not afford private religious schools, leaving homeschooling the only option for a religious education. If they were forced to accept a secular education for their children, they probably would just stop having them. It would be profoundly demoralizing to say the least.

    Jews’ leftism is phony. If Whites go after Jews for their ethnocentrism the way Jews go after Whites, it’s “anti-semitism.” Meanwhile, they broadly support their ethnostate. That’s not leftism, it’s one half of the Jewish Supremacist coin.

    White leftists are a problem, but they aren’t White Supremacists wrapping themselves in leftist trappings; they’re genuine in a way that Jews aren’t.

    Then there’s the percentages; leftists are a minority among Whites, while faux leftists are the overwhelming majority of Jews. Then there’s the Jewish personality profile; aggressive and activist. Not for nothing most of the political money in the country comes from Jews.
