From CBC News:

City of Saskatoon, advocates defend anti-racism billboards
‘It’s not staged actors, nor did the city make up those quotes’
By Charles Hamilton, CBC News Posted: Jul 04, 2017 3:00 AM

A billboard that drew the ire of some Saskatoon residents online is being heralded as a much-needed conversation starter about racism.

The sign on Circle Drive is one of four put up by the City of Saskatoon as part of its $21,000 campaign called “I am the Bridge” — a multimedia effort designed to share people’s stories and insights on their experiences with racism.

One particular billboard shows a photo of a man who appears to be white and a quote that reads “I have to acknowledge my own privilege and racist attitudes.”

Sheelah Mclean, a co-founder of Idle No More and an anti-opression educator, says she understands why billboards about white privilege and racism make some people uncomfortable.

“There are going to be people who feel guilt, there are going to be people who are going to feel sadness that they didn’t know this information, they had never been taught it. There are going to be people who feel anger. It’s all called backlashing,” McLean said.

  3. Sorry to go off topic a bit, but the New Yorker has just published an in-depth story on one place where it’s okay (still, I think) to be white: Orange City, Iowa, the county seat of Sioux County, which has been discussed at some length here on iSteve: LINK

    OC is my home town, so I know some of the people interviewed for the article, a couple of them very well.

    Interesting that the article doesn't even mention one of the primary reasons families prefer to stay in Orange City for multiple generations, they have historically had a considerably lower than the national average divorce rate. Although I think that has risen in recent years as well.

    It's funny how all the progressives blast the conformity, but still want to move back and reap the benefits it helps provide.

    What in your opinion have been the biggest factors in Orange City and Sioux County's success? I know the area and know there are several other towns in the region that have the same level ethnic solidarity and Christian devotion as Orange City, only instead of being Dutch and Reformed, they are Swedish and Lutheran or German and Mennonite. None of these other small towns have had the same level of economic prosperity though. Has the quality of the farmland given them a decisive advantage?

    , @Hello
    Could the same be said of towns in Westerm Michigan?
    , @psmith

    As America’s rural communities stagnate, what can we learn from one that hasn’t?
    The town was founded by immigrants from Holland, and, until recently, almost everyone who lived there was Dutch.
     
    Talk about answering your own question. Before the article even starts, no less!
    , @Some Economist
    Thanks for linking the article--very interesting.

    OC is my home town, so I know some of the people interviewed for the article, a couple of them very well.
     
    Can they do anything to get that Mahr guy out of there? On second though, there's some equilibrium where one guy just has to signal against his less enlightened neighbors, so it wouldn't matter anyway.

    I'd be curious about your perspective is on this, but having some chance familiarity with the region, I get the sense that the author takes the religious references much more seriously than the people she's getting the quotes from do. That way she and her audience can feel appropriately disturbed/superior. Still, I'd like to think journalists were capable of being a little more sophisticated about this.

    To the extent that the people of OC are genuinely religious, at least it can be redirected in service of Good Things:

    After much indecision and praying, however, she and Justin chose to move home. It turned out better than they’d feared—Sioux County was changing. In their small church alone, there were nine or ten families that had adopted nonwhite kids, and many Latino families were settling nearby.
     
    What a relief!

    In reality groups become more outraged when a member of an out-group commits a crime against them then when a member of the in-group commits a crime against a fellow member.

    Is it hypocritical? Yes, but it is basic human nature. For example, blacks barely bat an eye about black-on-black crime. In the city of Chicago you annually have more black-on-black homicides than all the nationwide killings of blacks by cops. Though some cops doing the killing are black, they are still perceived to be working for the man which is tantamount to a white cop killing a black. The whole BLM is nothing more than blacks being upset that non-blacks are killing blacks.

    Every day dozens of muslims are murdered by fellow muslims in Iraq and Syria. You barely hear a peep about it from other muslims. But look at the worldwide muslim reaction towards the Buddhists of Myanmar who have turned on the local muslims. Much more outrage is directed against those Buddhists than against muslims who are slaughtering muslims.

    Likewise American whites, I included, would have reacted differently had the Vegas or Texas shooters been non-white and non-American.

    Keep in mind what determines an in-group member from an out-group member doesn't necessarily have to do with race or ethnicity. There are plenty of white leftists who disdain traditional whites and Christians. These people routinely respond to any terror attack against whites by pushing what Steve calls the "frontlash" and telling the rest of us the actions of a few don't represent the group, etc., etc. Yet when a white commits a crime they are quick to label whites as the greatest danger to our society.

    I can't think of any group that doesn't behave like this. That is why multi-ethnic/racial/cultural societies are like tinderboxes likely to be set off at any moment when a group believes it is being targeted. It's why governments of these societies increasingly need more control over the populace, such as restrictions on speech, to keep things in check. It's the reason we really need separate nations.

    , @Lurker
    White criminals are already resident. But adding groups who are more crime prone per capita isn't a problem for you?

    According to you 1 + 0 = 1+1.

    Over 200 million whites in the USA. About 3 million Muslims in the USA. What's the per capita damage in the USA since, oh, January 1, 2001 of Muslims vs. European-Americans?

    And it's not just the murders, per se. Consider all the rights that have been taken from us since 9/11 in the name of fighting terrorism even as we import over 100,000 individuals each year from the demo most likely to commit terrorism.

    There are roughly the same number of Muslim-majority countries in the world as there are white non-Muslim countries in the world - about 50 each. If, just based on what life is like in each, you were to decide which you would most desire to import your population from which would it be? If you were forced to leave the USA (assuming your American) and you had to choose between moving to a random white country or a random Islamic country which would you choose?

Informal posters saying “It’s ok to be white” is “creating racial tension” according to Global News and the University of Toronto. “It’s ok to be white” is also “intended to divide us from one another.” according to Harvard Law School Dean Marcia L.

    , @The Last Real Calvinist
    Thanks for the comments and questions.

    I don't think it's the quality of the farmland that's made the difference. The land in Sioux County is certainly some of the world's best, but if you are familiar with NW Iowa, then you know that fairly significant swathes of Iowa have land that's just as good, or very close, and those areas are not necessarily thriving.

    I think the cultural factors are decisive. The article has good sport with Orange City's 'embalmed' culture, e.g. its annual Tulip Festival, and its Dutch-fronts-festooned main street, and so on, but these efforts, no matter how corny, do make a significant positive difference.

    To me, it's this valuing of place and local culture that's been decisive in OC not just maintaining, but increasing its prosperity and way of life. People care about the town, they want it to thrive, and they know they're unusual in the intensity of their caring.

    It's interesting how the author raises the notion that OC is a 'progressive' town, but in the old-fashioned, 19th-century sense of the word. That form of progressivism -- a sturdy amalgam of the Protestant work ethic, pioneer boldness and perseverance, and ethnic cohesion -- has mostly been extirpated from broader American culture, as those who once held it have been relentlessly mocked and belittled by their cultural betters over the years, from Sinclair Lewis to Garrison Keillor. But it does live on in some places like OC.

    What's ironic about the article is that while it correctly identifies OC as thriving, and therefore different, from the typical small American town, it celebrates the ways in which that difference is being eroded. Musty old small-town progressivism must give way to the True Progressivism of the current year. OC's 'pure, hermetic culture' may be the source of its prosperity, but that is the very best reason to strive against that culture. It doesn't make much sense, but that's The Narrative, and woe to those who stand against it.

    I think the most telling detail about the article is its predominant verb tense. That is, large sections of the article describe OC in the past tense, assuming that its existence as a Zombie Mayberry is now (thankfully) coming to an end. I hope this proves to be a mistake.

Much more outrage is directed against those Buddhists than against muslims who are slaughtering muslims.

    Likewise American whites, I included, would have reacted differently had the Vegas or Texas shooters been non-white and non-American.

    Keep in mind what determines an in-group member from an out-group member doesn’t necessarily have to do with race or ethnicity. There are plenty of white leftists who disdain traditional whites and Christians. These people routinely respond to any terror attack against whites by pushing what Steve calls the “frontlash” and telling the rest of us the actions of a few don’t represent the group, etc., etc. Yet when a white commits a crime they are quick to label whites as the greatest danger to our society.

    I can’t think of any group that doesn’t behave like this. That is why multi-ethnic/racial/cultural societies are like tinderboxes likely to be set off at any moment when a group believes it is being targeted. It’s why governments of these societies increasingly need more control over the populace, such as restrictions on speech, to keep things in check. It’s the reason we really need separate nations.

    And those nations need to be tiny compared to today.

    We need a world of thousands of such nations, where high fences make for good neighbors. Getting there, however, will be very painful. We know that some peoples are far more able to produce the "goodies" everyone seems to want.

    We also know that those who are incapable of producing those "goodies" would, in the end, rather destroy those who can, insuring the non-producers' descent into complete prehistoric savagery, rather than live in the shadow of others.

    It's a weird world, when those who want the golden eggs first try to extort the geese, and if that fails, will slaughter the geese rather than see anyone else with golden eggs.

    We fast approach a Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge kind of conflict (everywhere but China, that is) where the have-not/cannot's begin to systematically exterminate the have's/can's out of shame & envy.

    The town was founded by immigrants from Holland, and, until recently, almost everyone who lived there was Dutch.

    From Saskatoon Population 2017:

    Saskatoon has the highest violent crime rate in Canada, although crime rates are dropping. New research also indicates that the province has Canada’s highest rate of new HIV cases with one-quarter of HIV-infected babies born in the region. This is attributed to the growing problems of gangs, poverty, prostitution, and drug use in Saskatoon.

    The Saskatoon metropolitan area grew by 9,600 people in 2014, or 3.2% in a year, while Canada grew by just 1.1%. More than half of the growth is due to immigration. Saskatoon had the country’s second-highest immigration rate at 1.8%.

    It's easy to become despondent here at what I otherwise believe is near the apogee for this long Extraordinary Popular Delusion.


    What gives me hope is that the so-called whites (those whose roots go back to before the lunacy took hold) have nowhere else to go.

    When the mass-minded belief in unlimited resources fueling all this finally ends, and it ends as I suspect it will in an historic financial/economic cataclysm ("we went broke slowly, then all at once"), political sentiment will invert so profoundly that recent immigrants will feel compelled to leave (out of self-preservation) for their prior homes and the current political orthodoxy will be completely overturned.

    There won't be any need for whites to literally grab guns and go to war. The sentiment shift will surge upward into the political institutions and even the leftists ensconced in lifetime judicial appointments will feel an irresistible compulsion to get with the program (or they'll be summarily stripped of their positions if not literally lynched.)

    One of these days, everything will change. It really does look darkest before the dawn, and every commodity rally of large size looks most likely to continue forever just prior to its apogee and ensuing, crushing bear market.

    Growing problem of gangs? Perhaps the police bother to do their jobs more often nowadays, with resulting higher conviction rates, but I live in alphabet city (old Ukrainian ghetto, now more mixed Ukie/Aboriginal/South East Asian, aka "Riversdale"), and the last shoot out in this neighbourhood was around 2011. The most recent shoot out (with police, no less) was downtown. Canada built a fair bit of new housing on reserves in the mid 90s, with resulting reduced lead poisoning, hence much increased STEM bachelor graduation by aboriginals the last few years, at least in Saskatoon.

    To the extent that racism by whites against aboriginals is a problem, it is bureaucrats and similarly powerful people, not man in the street, although that is a real ugly problem, that would be called genocide elsewhere.

    Racism by immigrants against Aboriginals and poorer whites is, other than the forced sterilizations, a far more severe problem, e.g. getting surrounded police style by (middle class non-white immigrant) clerks, or being followed in stores, and sleazy police behaviour e.g. attempted subornation to controlled substance abuse, et cetera.

    Nationalists need to be honest about the huge disaster being spawned by all these "Christians" who have absorbed "our" culture's good-thinking messaging and then apply it by dragging all sorts of non-whites into white communities (adoption, converts, refugees), making everyone else support them and destroying precisely what makes it a quality community.

    I put "Christians" in quotes, not because they aren't sincere Christians--they usually are. But their behavior is essentially to degrade/wreck community and life for others in pursuit of their own desire for virtue. Hardly true Christian behavior.

    I recently attended a course at USC in which the instructor kept interjecting, “I’m sorry we men have given you women such a hard time in the past” and so on. Several hours into it, I told him I didn’t pay $3200 for a continuing ed specialist class to hear this. He seemed surprised that he really did not need to go on like this, given the university environment I suppose. How had a scientist morphed into an apology factory?

    No one acknowledged what he had said; it was as if he kept passing gas. This was a group of serious, self-reliant specialists, not working in corporate or university environments. He had been a scientist who was representing a testing protocol that many universities had adopted. It was as if no one wanted to be party to his self-flagellating. Maybe it was because the group had been educated long ago, when university really was university. Whatever, the virtue signalling was wasted on this bunch. We continued, sans filler. Maybe he was secretly relieved.

    No one in the clip mentions what a waste of time all this is. No country can function if it’s balled up with perceived sleights and chained to grievance ghosts of centuries past. Maybe that’s the goal – gum up the works so badly the wheels can no longer turn.

  42. The Conservative Party of Canada has to call out both untrammeled Third World immigration and the anti-white narratives being driven down our throats everywhere you go. It’s understood that most white Canadians want immigration either reduced or completely eliminated but will rarely say this in polite company. For good measure and to take a page out of Jordan Peterson’s book, the Conservatives can also praise how socially conservative and pro-family most non-whites and immigrants living in Canada today are. Which is true. It’s such an easy thing to do but mainstream conservatives in this country never bother. Are they afraid of offending homosexuals, lesbians, etc. who would never vote for them anyway? God only knows.

    Without doing the above, I agree that the Conservatives will fizzle out and die. Currently, the Conservatives are only seen as a lower-tax party in the hands of oil interests.

    Framed as a culture war, however, the Conservatives would win every time.

    No, false. They're not reinventing anything, they're professing the standard Gnostic creed.

    Gnosticism has always been the underground parallel religion of Western European elites, and once they removed Christianity from public life, it's not surprising that Gnosticism became mainstream.

    A quick recap of core Gnostic beliefs, for those that don't know:

    1. There's a sharp distinction between the spiritual (= rational) and material worlds.
    2. The material world is wholly and irredeemably evil.
    3. Human beings are rational souls that inhabit flesh robots.
    4. There are no bodily (i.e., racial or sexual) characteristics in human rational souls.
    5. The goal of any human being is to liberate his/her soul from its flesh robot. This liberation can be achieved by properly utilizing the soul's rational faculties.
    6. Not all souls are created equal; some cannot be liberated in principle due to irrational attachments to the evil material world.

    At the moment they're on a crusade against white Europeans because white Europeans turned out to be remarkably recalcitrant in abandoning Christian ideas even in the absence of legal public Christianity. Their thinking goes that third-world brown people and Muslims are less infected by what they view as the "Christian mind virus", and thus more likely to achieve liberation.

    But note that if they achieve their goal of population replacement and it turns out that third-world brownies aren't as malleable as they thought, then they're not above pushing for "liberation" using more base, traditional means. (Global nuclear/biological war, wide-scale genocide. They're not, theoretically, above the idea of "liberating" the soul from its flesh robot by such crude means.)

    Also note that all the modern ideological bulwarks that seem so strange on first glance -- antinatalism, abortion, homophilia, tranny rights, feminism -- flow naturally and make sense when viewed from the lens of the Gnostic belief structure.

    It's funny how all the progressives blast the conformity, but still want to move back and reap the benefits it helps provide.

    What in your opinion have been the biggest factors in Orange City and Sioux County's success? I know the area and know there are several other towns in the region that have the same level ethnic solidarity and Christian devotion as Orange City, only instead of being Dutch and Reformed, they are Swedish and Lutheran or German and Mennonite. None of these other small towns have had the same level of economic prosperity though. Has the quality of the farmland given them a decisive advantage?

    The Left perpetually wants to replace "what is" with their latest fad in a long string of "what ought to be."

    That the fads shift like sand dunes over time seems lost to them. What was once the definition of Utopia fades and is replaced by something even more estranged from "what is." Now, a man can become a woman if he visits a Dr. Frankenstein who will stitch him a pseudo-female genital set. Now that's a potent belief in the power of "what ought."

    I can't tell if this is a product exclusively of people existing for several generations without hardship, or if it's literally a build-up of deleterious mutations, exhibited almost exclusively in behavior, produced by modernity's pushing back Nature's normal culling of human populations via the Four Horsemen. How many of today's cat-ladies, queers and soya-men would be alive under conditions common to the 19th century, much less the 16th?

    The former is something that can presumably be unlearned. The latter is a physical fact, and cannot be resolved without a level of hardship (necessary to cull the herd of vast numbers of defective individuals) that makes today's Zombie Apocalypse fiction genre look like a Disney Theme Park.

    PS: You are, of course, correct; their "what ought" is today's dogma-version of Heaven on Earth, AKA fulfillment of the Gnostic Heresy.

    Over 200 million whites in the USA. About 3 million Muslims in the USA. What’s the per capita damage in the USA since, oh, January 1, 2001 of Muslims vs. European-Americans?

    And it’s not just the murders, per se. Consider all the rights that have been taken from us since 9/11 in the name of fighting terrorism even as we import over 100,000 individuals each year from the demo most likely to commit terrorism.

    There are roughly the same number of Muslim-majority countries in the world as there are white non-Muslim countries in the world – about 50 each. If, just based on what life is like in each, you were to decide which you would most desire to import your population from which would it be? If you were forced to leave the USA (assuming your American) and you had to choose between moving to a random white country or a random Islamic country which would you choose?

The land in Sioux County is certainly some of the world’s best, but if you are familiar with NW Iowa, then you know that fairly significant swathes of Iowa have land that’s just as good, or very close, and those areas are not necessarily thriving.

    I think the cultural factors are decisive. The article has good sport with Orange City’s ‘embalmed’ culture, e.g. its annual Tulip Festival, and its Dutch-fronts-festooned main street, and so on, but these efforts, no matter how corny, do make a significant positive difference.

    To me, it’s this valuing of place and local culture that’s been decisive in OC not just maintaining, but increasing its prosperity and way of life. People care about the town, they want it to thrive, and they know they’re unusual in the intensity of their caring.

    It’s interesting how the author raises the notion that OC is a ‘progressive’ town, but in the old-fashioned, 19th-century sense of the word. That form of progressivism — a sturdy amalgam of the Protestant work ethic, pioneer boldness and perseverance, and ethnic cohesion — has mostly been extirpated from broader American culture, as those who once held it have been relentlessly mocked and belittled by their cultural betters over the years, from Sinclair Lewis to Garrison Keillor. But it does live on in some places like OC.

    What’s ironic about the article is that while it correctly identifies OC as thriving, and therefore different, from the typical small American town, it celebrates the ways in which that difference is being eroded. Musty old small-town progressivism must give way to the True Progressivism of the current year. OC’s ‘pure, hermetic culture’ may be the source of its prosperity, but that is the very best reason to strive against that culture. It doesn’t make much sense, but that’s The Narrative, and woe to those who stand against it.

    I think the most telling detail about the article is its predominant verb tense. That is, large sections of the article describe OC in the past tense, assuming that its existence as a Zombie Mayberry is now (thankfully) coming to an end. I hope this proves to be a mistake.

    I don't want to post too much personal information, but I graduated from Northwestern. Even when I attended over 15 years ago, there seemed to be this sanctimonious attitude from many of the faculty that Orange City was a place that needed to change. They readily took advantage of all of the quality of life benefits of living there, but I thought many of them still had a condescension towards the community. Based on the article, that seems to having an impact as the generations they have educated at Northwestern and Dordt aren't as likely to continue what make the community unique. Like you said, I hope they are wrong that is it coming to an end.

    Informal posters saying "It's ok to be white" is "creating racial tension" according to Global News and the University of Toronto. "It's ok to be white" is also "intended to divide us from one another." according to Harvard Law School Dean Marcia L. Sells. But wholesale anti-white racial politics advocacy is worthy of government funded billboards.

    The left have really become unredeemable on identity politics.

    This is why those informal posters “It’s ok to be white” are needed as a antidote to the to the insane cat ladies and government funded anti-white propaganda

    It’s not just the Left that has become unredeemable it’s the entire government establishment that aids and abets the Lefty social and ethnic engineering of Western civilization.

    Personally, if I had any privilege , the last thing I would do is apologize for it. I would be using it to the max. But, I guess I don't have any cred in that area. Today, because I'm so broke, I had to cancel all my cable services except for the internet.

    If you have a reasonably fast internet connection, you can get a lot of TV that way.

    (Caveat – I don’t know the legal situation in the US, and some of the apps (like Ace Media Player) may be Russian, though it seems OK. But I know GCHQ monitor every web site anyone in the UK visits, so I’m not really bothered if the Russians know too, and I use a PC that has no work/financial stuff on it. No Russian ever called me deplorable.)

    Don't beat yourself up about this. There's practically nothing good on, and you won't miss it within a few days. Why would anyone pay for cable TV in the first place? Paying money to have anti-White messaging spammed in your face, without even getting a credential out of it like you get from college?

    They’re trying to re-invent Christianity so they don’t have to admit they were wrong to trash it in the first place.

    They’re making a complete hash of it.
     

    No, false. They're not reinventing anything, they're professing the standard Gnostic creed.

    Gnosticism has always been the underground parallel religion of Western European elites, and once they removed Christianity from public life, it's not surprising that Gnosticism became mainstream.

    A quick recap of core Gnostic beliefs, for those that don't know:

    1. There's a sharp distinction between the spiritual (= rational) and material worlds.
    2. The material world is wholly and irredeemably evil.
    3. Human beings are rational souls that inhabit flesh robots.
    4. There are no bodily (i.e., racial or sexual) characteristics in human rational souls.
    5. The goal of any human being is to liberate his/her soul from its flesh robot. This liberation can be achieved by properly utilizing the soul's rational faculties.
    6. Not all souls are created equal; some cannot be liberated in principle due to irrational attachments to the evil material world.

    At the moment they're on a crusade against white Europeans because white Europeans turned out to be remarkably recalcitrant in abandoning Christian ideas even in the absence of legal public Christianity. Their thinking goes that third-world brown people and Muslims are less infected by what they view as the "Christian mind virus", and thus more likely to achieve liberation.

    But note that if they achieve their goal of population replacement and it turns out that third-world brownies aren't as malleable as they thought, then they're not above pushing for "liberation" using more base, traditional means. (Global nuclear/biological war, wide-scale genocide. They're not, theoretically, above the idea of "liberating" the soul from its flesh robot by such crude means.)

    Also note that all the modern ideological bulwarks that seem so strange on first glance -- antinatalism, abortion, homophilia, tranny rights, feminism -- flow naturally and make sense when viewed from the lens of the Gnostic belief structure.

    The Left perpetually wants to replace “what is” with their latest fad in a long string of “what ought to be.”

    That the fads shift like sand dunes over time seems lost to them. What was once the definition of Utopia fades and is replaced by something even more estranged from “what is.” Now, a man can become a woman if he visits a Dr. Frankenstein who will stitch him a pseudo-female genital set. Now that’s a potent belief in the power of “what ought.”

    I can’t tell if this is a product exclusively of people existing for several generations without hardship, or if it’s literally a build-up of deleterious mutations, exhibited almost exclusively in behavior, produced by modernity’s pushing back Nature’s normal culling of human populations via the Four Horsemen. How many of today’s cat-ladies, queers and soya-men would be alive under conditions common to the 19th century, much less the 16th?

    The former is something that can presumably be unlearned. The latter is a physical fact, and cannot be resolved without a level of hardship (necessary to cull the herd of vast numbers of defective individuals) that makes today’s Zombie Apocalypse fiction genre look like a Disney Theme Park.

    PS: You are, of course, correct; their “what ought” is today’s dogma-version of Heaven on Earth, AKA fulfillment of the Gnostic Heresy.

    From Saskatoon Population 2017:

    Saskatoon has the highest violent crime rate in Canada, although crime rates are dropping. New research also indicates that the province has Canada's highest rate of new HIV cases with one-quarter of HIV-infected babies born in the region. This is attributed to the growing problems of gangs, poverty, prostitution, and drug use in Saskatoon.

    The Saskatoon metropolitan area grew by 9,600 people in 2014, or 3.2% in a year, while Canada grew by just 1.1%. More than half of the growth is due to immigration. Saskatoon had the country's second-highest immigration rate at 1.8%.

     

    Sounds like things are going swimmingly, hence the Billboards.

    It’s easy to become despondent here at what I otherwise believe is near the apogee for this long Extraordinary Popular Delusion.

    What gives me hope is that the so-called whites (those whose roots go back to before the lunacy took hold) have nowhere else to go.

    When the mass-minded belief in unlimited resources fueling all this finally ends, and it ends as I suspect it will in an historic financial/economic cataclysm (“we went broke slowly, then all at once“), political sentiment will invert so profoundly that recent immigrants will feel compelled to leave (out of self-preservation) for their prior homes and the current political orthodoxy will be completely overturned.

    There won’t be any need for whites to literally grab guns and go to war. The sentiment shift will surge upward into the political institutions and even the leftists ensconced in lifetime judicial appointments will feel an irresistible compulsion to get with the program (or they’ll be summarily stripped of their positions if not literally lynched.)

    One of these days, everything will change. It really does look darkest before the dawn, and every commodity rally of large size looks most likely to continue forever just prior to its apogee and ensuing, crushing bear market.

    In reality groups become more outraged when a member of an out-group commits a crime against them then when a member of the in-group commits a crime against a fellow member.

    Is it hypocritical? Yes, but it is basic human nature. For example, blacks barely bat an eye about black-on-black crime. In the city of Chicago you annually have more black-on-black homicides than all the nationwide killings of blacks by cops. Though some cops doing the killing are black, they are still perceived to be working for the man which is tantamount to a white cop killing a black. The whole BLM is nothing more than blacks being upset that non-blacks are killing blacks.

    Every day dozens of muslims are murdered by fellow muslims in Iraq and Syria. You barely hear a peep about it from other muslims. But look at the worldwide muslim reaction towards the Buddhists of Myanmar who have turned on the local muslims. Much more outrage is directed against those Buddhists than against muslims who are slaughtering muslims.

    Likewise American whites, I included, would have reacted differently had the Vegas or Texas shooters been non-white and non-American.

    Keep in mind what determines an in-group member from an out-group member doesn't necessarily have to do with race or ethnicity. There are plenty of white leftists who disdain traditional whites and Christians. These people routinely respond to any terror attack against whites by pushing what Steve calls the "frontlash" and telling the rest of us the actions of a few don't represent the group, etc., etc. Yet when a white commits a crime they are quick to label whites as the greatest danger to our society.

    I can't think of any group that doesn't behave like this. That is why multi-ethnic/racial/cultural societies are like tinderboxes likely to be set off at any moment when a group believes it is being targeted. It's why governments of these societies increasingly need more control over the populace, such as restrictions on speech, to keep things in check. It's the reason we really need separate nations.

    Thanks for linking the article--very interesting.

    OC is my home town, so I know some of the people interviewed for the article, a couple of them very well.
     
    Can they do anything to get that Mahr guy out of there? On second though, there's some equilibrium where one guy just has to signal against his less enlightened neighbors, so it wouldn't matter anyway.

    I'd be curious about your perspective is on this, but having some chance familiarity with the region, I get the sense that the author takes the religious references much more seriously than the people she's getting the quotes from do. That way she and her audience can feel appropriately disturbed/superior. Still, I'd like to think journalists were capable of being a little more sophisticated about this.

    To the extent that the people of OC are genuinely religious, at least it can be redirected in service of Good Things:

    After much indecision and praying, however, she and Justin chose to move home. It turned out better than they’d feared—Sioux County was changing. In their small church alone, there were nine or ten families that had adopted nonwhite kids, and many Latino families were settling nearby.
     
    What a relief!

    Nationalists need to be honest about the huge disaster being spawned by all these “Christians” who have absorbed “our” culture’s good-thinking messaging and then apply it by dragging all sorts of non-whites into white communities (adoption, converts, refugees), making everyone else support them and destroying precisely what makes it a quality community.

    I put “Christians” in quotes, not because they aren’t sincere Christians–they usually are. But their behavior is essentially to degrade/wreck community and life for others in pursuit of their own desire for virtue. Hardly true Christian behavior.

    We also know that those who are incapable of producing those “goodies” would, in the end, rather destroy those who can, insuring the non-producers’ descent into complete prehistoric savagery, rather than live in the shadow of others.

  72. East Grand Rapids commissioners condemn ‘It’s okay to be white’ fliers

    As a Jewish American this really strikes home,” says Chad Zagel, First Ward Commissioner. “With the kind of world that I’m trying to build for my son, I’m deeply offended, the outrage knows no bounds.

    Great line, Chad. I'll be quoting that.
    , @CCZ
    “Cause alarm or annoyance” "because of race, color, religion, gender, handicap, sexual orientation or ethnicity" and you have committed a [bias] crime, in New Jersey.

    The Hoboken Police Department in New Jersey said Sunday it was investigating as a possible bias crime flyers that feature a photo of a Sikh mayoral candidate wearing a turban and the message “Don’t let TERRORISM take over our Town!”

    The leaflets, distributed days before Tuesday’s upcoming election, display a picture of Councilman Ravi Bhalla, who is running for mayor, with the caption about terrorism above his head.

    The literature goes on to allege “a potential conflict of interest” involving Bhalla and his position on the City Council.

    Hoboken Police Department Capt. Charles Campbell told NBC News in an email that the incident was being investigated as possible biased harassment. That’s because it may cause alarm or annoyance as described in the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice, he said.

    NJ Statute

    a.Makes, or causes to be made, a communication or communications anonymously or at extremely inconvenient hours, or in offensively coarse language, or any other manner likely to cause annoyance or alarm;

    b.Subjects another to striking, kicking, shoving, or other offensive touching, or threatens to do so; or

    c.Engages in any other course of alarming conduct or of repeatedly committed acts with purpose to alarm or seriously annoy such other person.

    Acting with a “purpose to intimidate an individual or group because of race, color, religion, gender, handicap, sexual orientation or ethnicity” elevates the status of the charge.

    Chad* says that *he* - the singular I - is trying to build a world for his son. How can one man alone build a world, if he is only mortal? On whose authority can he do so? (Does Chad have delusions of godhood? Or does he regard himself as a mere instrument?) Are those of us who prefer to live in a world contrary to Chad's design doomed to be summarily expelled from the planet? (If we're lucky, he'll give us a small reservation in northernmost Nunavut.)

    I recently attended a course at USC in which the instructor kept interjecting, "I'm sorry we men have given you women such a hard time in the past" and so on. Several hours into it, I told him I didn't pay $3200 for a continuing ed specialist class to hear this. He seemed surprised that he really did not need to go on like this, given the university environment I suppose. How had a scientist morphed into an apology factory?

    No one acknowledged what he had said; it was as if he kept passing gas. This was a group of serious, self-reliant specialists, not working in corporate or university environments. He had been a scientist who was representing a testing protocol that many universities had adopted. It was as if no one wanted to be party to his self-flagellating. Maybe it was because the group had been educated long ago, when university really was university. Whatever, the virtue signalling was wasted on this bunch. We continued, sans filler. Maybe he was secretly relieved.

    No one in the clip mentions what a waste of time all this is. No country can function if it's balled up with perceived sleights and chained to grievance ghosts of centuries past. Maybe that's the goal - gum up the works so badly the wheels can no longer turn.

    I think it’s a form of cruelty for the current ruling class to insist these more socially awkward, “absent-minded professor” types must endlessly navigate through the ever-shifting rules set out by the SJWs. Guys who just want to teach bookkeeping, categorize butterflies or help land probes on comets should not be expected to play these elaborate and vicious social games just to keep their jobs.

    From Saskatoon Population 2017:

    Saskatoon has the highest violent crime rate in Canada, although crime rates are dropping. New research also indicates that the province has Canada's highest rate of new HIV cases with one-quarter of HIV-infected babies born in the region. This is attributed to the growing problems of gangs, poverty, prostitution, and drug use in Saskatoon.

    The Saskatoon metropolitan area grew by 9,600 people in 2014, or 3.2% in a year, while Canada grew by just 1.1%. More than half of the growth is due to immigration. Saskatoon had the country's second-highest immigration rate at 1.8%.

     

    Sounds like things are going swimmingly, hence the Billboards.

    Growing problem of gangs? Perhaps the police bother to do their jobs more often nowadays, with resulting higher conviction rates, but I live in alphabet city (old Ukrainian ghetto, now more mixed Ukie/Aboriginal/South East Asian, aka “Riversdale”), and the last shoot out in this neighbourhood was around 2011. The most recent shoot out (with police, no less) was downtown. Canada built a fair bit of new housing on reserves in the mid 90s, with resulting reduced lead poisoning, hence much increased STEM bachelor graduation by aboriginals the last few years, at least in Saskatoon.

    To the extent that racism by whites against aboriginals is a problem, it is bureaucrats and similarly powerful people, not man in the street, although that is a real ugly problem, that would be called genocide elsewhere.

    Racism by immigrants against Aboriginals and poorer whites is, other than the forced sterilizations, a far more severe problem, e.g. getting surrounded police style by (middle class non-white immigrant) clerks, or being followed in stores, and sleazy police behaviour e.g. attempted subornation to controlled substance abuse, et cetera.

    After much indecision and praying, however, she and Justin chose to move home. It turned out better than they’d feared—Sioux County was changing. In their small church alone, there were nine or ten families that had adopted nonwhite kids, and many Latino families were settling nearby.
     
    Nationalists need to be honest about the huge disaster being spawned by all these "Christians" who have absorbed "our" culture's good-thinking messaging and then apply it by dragging all sorts of non-whites into white communities (adoption, converts, refugees), making everyone else support them and destroying precisely what makes it a quality community.

    I put "Christians" in quotes, not because they aren't sincere Christians--they usually are. But their behavior is essentially to degrade/wreck community and life for others in pursuit of their own desire for virtue. Hardly true Christian behavior.

    The city has a significant Indigenous population and several urban Reserves.

    It's easy to become despondent here at what I otherwise believe is near the apogee for this long Extraordinary Popular Delusion.


    What gives me hope is that the so-called whites (those whose roots go back to before the lunacy took hold) have nowhere else to go.

    When the mass-minded belief in unlimited resources fueling all this finally ends, and it ends as I suspect it will in an historic financial/economic cataclysm ("we went broke slowly, then all at once"), political sentiment will invert so profoundly that recent immigrants will feel compelled to leave (out of self-preservation) for their prior homes and the current political orthodoxy will be completely overturned.

    There won't be any need for whites to literally grab guns and go to war. The sentiment shift will surge upward into the political institutions and even the leftists ensconced in lifetime judicial appointments will feel an irresistible compulsion to get with the program (or they'll be summarily stripped of their positions if not literally lynched.)

    One of these days, everything will change. It really does look darkest before the dawn, and every commodity rally of large size looks most likely to continue forever just prior to its apogee and ensuing, crushing bear market.

    What is Earth’s carrying capacity? Are we anywhere near reaching it? How many more years of the status quo can we maintain? Give me a number.

    The SWPL libtards will come around only when the shelves at Whole Foods are as barren and destitute as the wombs of thirtysomthing corporate drones. When Starbucks runs out of coffee, they might start to wander back toward something resembling sanity. But, by that time, it will be far too late to do anything.

    You are betting that the gravy train will derail before we reach the tipping point. Good luck with that.

    Question:

    Is there any body of research showing net payments of taxes and net total of government benefits by race and/or ethnicity?

    I am curious who is subsidizing whom. I imagine this is part of my invisible knapsack.

    I also confess to the sin of noticing and desire to make full penance for my sins. I will recite the national anthem 10 times while kneeling on a hard wooden floor.

    Sure, The Alternative Hypothesis worked out the 2014 numbers to be blacks as a net drain of $10,016 per capita

    http://thealternativehypothesis.org/index.php/2016/05/11/fiscal-impact-of-whites-blacks-and-hispanics/

    And Vox Day had some good commentary here:

    http://voxday.blogspot.it/2017/06/the-cost-of-black-america.html

    But Paul Kersey has done the best thinking on the subject, and the real answer to your question is that no one knows the trillions of dollars in direct subsidies and indirect costs that white Americans have paid as a result of the African population.
