Today, Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller follows up my scoop yesterday on the identity of the individual who defaced a Brooklyn synagogue anti-Semitic graffiti that the national media was intending to turn into a nice Weekend Crisis.

As I pointed out yesterday the vandal suspect is James Polite, a black, gay, black studies major with close ties to the mainstream Democratic establishment in New York City, who had served as an intern working on anti-hate crime projects for the lesbian speaker of the city council, Christine Quinn.

Rosiak takes a deep dive into the Facebook of Polite, who, during his bipolar manic spells unloads racial resentment of, I’m guessing, his most recent liberal Jewish foster parents’ lifestyle and worldview:

Screenshot 2018-11-03 15.23.25

A bit of a black Ted Kaczynski flavor, perhaps?

It appears that on November 1, after posting a photo of a burning American flag on Facebook, Polite also set a number of fires outside Williamsburg Hasidic synagogues.

Fortunately, none of them appear to have spread. (The one video shows a man starting fires in two trash cans out on the curb, which isn’t very homicidal looking, but, please remember, unintended bad things can happen with flames.)

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, it would be wise for pundits to ease off on the “burn down” metaphors, such as the recent NYT column:

“I Want to Burn the Frat House of America to the Ground,” by Jennifer Weiner

You can use “tear down” or the like. But there really are pyromaniacs out there, so try not to inspire them.

    Nah, Ted Kaczynski was a mathematician, extremely smart, and probably too much for his own good – he saw too much of the future. This guy, not so much …

    True. The funny thing is that I have works by both Ted Kaczynski and Jack Kerouac on the shelves behind me. They are different; different from each other and from most of us.

    If you read the Unabomber manifesto, you can see that it was written by a very smart guy (even if psychotic), and a lot of what he writes actually makes sense — and even when it doesn’t it is an interesting read. (Too bad that for some reason he felt that he had to kill people to get it published)

    Polite’s writing is not totally bad, he has some funny parts, but he sounds more like a beatnik poet than someone trying to write a coherent argument. More like Allen Ginsberg, perhaps?

    That’s probably a pretty good rule of thumb for the ctrl-left and the minorities. When it comes to angry white guys, maybe you ought to go ahead and include “knock down” in your collection of phrases for people to try to ease off.

  14. Garlic says:

    Any thoughts on the Puerto Rican nationalist parts of the graffiti?

    A few possibilities that spring to my mind:

    1) Polite is part PR
    2) It’s an attempt to conceal his identity by making it look like a PR did it (this seems unlikely since he didn’t take simpler precautions like wearing a mask in front of the cameras)
    3) it has nothing to do with anything. It was a stream of consciousness thing flowing from his mental illness.

    My money would be on (3).

  15. Partly o/t: I heard NPR news today refer to the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting as ‘last week’s synagogue massacre.’

    Seems likely most Jews would wish this term to be the one history remembers for the event. It has much higher political victim cred than ‘shooting’ or ‘attack.’ Few similar events get this label though; Columbine was one exception.

    The English language connotation of ‘massacre’ tends strongly towards a politically repressive mass killing with authority on the killing side and civilians on the other. A somewhat ironic exceptional category is for gangland mass murders that don’t involve a whiff of innocence.

    Even Bataclan is remembered as an ‘attack’ in English, though the atrocities committed and the fact that Muslim terrorists are the de facto shock troops of EU authority easily merit the ‘massacre’ label, IMO.

    New paper in Cell (one of the most prestigious biological science journals) this week is about how immigration to the US ‘westernizes’ the human gut microbiome.

So it’s (yet another reason) it’s bad for their health. But don’t hold your breath for any NYT articles to point that out.

    Kaczynski was a genius who outshone a U of M math professor as a student and wrote in coherent sentences. I’m not getting the comparison.
    Perhaps there is a sad IQ gap warning here: was Polite like a miscategorized kid thrust into a gifted program far above his abilities, who came to resent hourly rules, gestures and statements (which were not intended to offend him)?

    I met Ginsberg a couple of times in Lawrence, apparently when visiting his friend Burroughs.

    On the first of those occasions Chris Stein was with him but I did not recognize him, it was immediately after his recovery from pemphigus vulgaris and he had a huge Jerry Garcia beard. Later on I got to talk to Chris a couple of times but he is an odd duck to say the least. (Along with Mark Knopfler and Lindsey Buckingham, one of the great electric fingerstyle guitarists: unlike most guitar players who will talk your ear off about gear, he is usually almost nonverbal when talking to other males, he will talk to women somewhat easier, but really odd, unlike D when she trusts you she is funny, often very open and a wicked, raunchy wit. I see where they are a couple with odd displacements of the otherwise masculine and feminine although he married a hot younger actress, had two daughters, and she is a cat lady in Central Jersey these days.)

    Ginsberg was easy to talk to. I knew he was a bigwig in the Beat world but not what a total perv he was: I knew he liked men, but I did not know he was a card carrying pederast. I actually thought he was an okay sort, silly me.

    Ginsberg was a really big perv, by the way. The late William Pierce actually devoted an entire one hour broadcast to just what a perverse and sick sort he was and everything in the broadcast was factually true.

    Allen Ginsberg: Media Model for America’s Youth
    by Dr. William L. Pierce

    THREE WEEKS ago a man named Allen Ginsberg (pictured) died, at the age of 70. If you were a university student in the 1960s or 1970s, his name will be very familiar to you. He was the person chosen by the media to be the number-one guru for America’s youth during that period. He’s been a sort of secondary guru ever since, and if you studied literature even in the 1980s or 1990s you got a dose of him. He always was treated in a worshipful sort of way by the media, in order to make the more gullible young people believe that he was some sort of genius who was to be taken very seriously. We could see this same worshipful attitude again when the media people reported his death earlier this month. I listened to NBC’s Tom Brokaw talk about Ginsberg on the evening television news. Brokaw behaved as if he were reporting the death of George Washington or Thomas Jefferson. He spoke of Ginsberg as if he had been a talented and sensitive poet, a great soul who had passed away, leaving us all sadder and poorer for the loss. He even read the first line of one of Ginsberg’s so-called “poems,” Howl. And he did it all with a straight face. There was no hint in his facial expression or tone of voice that he wasn’t completely serious. I didn’t see the way the other TV-news anchor-people dealt with Ginsberg’s death, but I presume it was similar to the way Brokaw did it. Certainly, the tone of all of the print media that I saw also was worshipful.

    Let me tell you about Allen Ginsberg, this great and sensitive soul who contributed so much to America and whose passing we all should mourn. Ginsberg was a drug-crazed, homosexual, Communist Jew. I do not use any of those terms lightly. He was very homosexual, very Communist, and very Jewish, and he was a big promoter of drug use by young people back during the 1950s and 1960s. He was not a guru, if we intend the normal meaning for that word, which is “spiritual teacher.” Judging from what he said and wrote during his life, he never had a spiritual impulse. Nor was he a poet, if we have any reasonable definition of what constitutes poetry. Of course, he pretended to be both a guru and a poet, and the media vigorously supported his pretensions. He was simply a degenerate piece of filth. His mind was a sewer. He was a con man, who made a good living from his pretensions.

    To realize the full truth of this you need to read — actually read for yourself — what Ginsberg wrote, which his media promoters call “poetry” — in fact, “great poetry.” I intended to quote a few samples myself, but I couldn’t find anything that I’m willing to repeat. His writing is almost indescribably filthy and perverted. I am not a prude, I am not sexually repressed, and I’m sure that I often say or write things which are offensive to many people. So when I tell you that there’s nothing Ginsberg wrote that I’m willing to quote, believe me, it’s pretty sick stuff.

    So how much of the history of black-white relations in America needs to be reconsidered from the angle of it really being gay black-white relations? Now this guy, last year Kehinde Wiley, year before that Deray McKesson among other fruity BLM activists, before that Donna Brazille, Barbara Jordan, Bayard Rustin, James Baldwin…

    It seems gay blacks not only know how to more effectively emotionally manipulate good whites, they also are talented at presenting it for maximal theatrical impact. From James Baldwin’s over-the-top angry black man schtick (JPod’s dad reverent quoting of Baldwin as some sort of authority on the thoughts and feelings of the average brotha is still hilarious reading) to the whole civil rights movement which- let’s face it, was the most significant TV show in American history, so no surprise it had a lot of gay backstage talent.

    In the corporate world, a large fraction of the black men I worked with in nice white collar jobs seemed pretty gay. Same for the handful of Mexican-American men. On the other hand, Mexican waiters usually aren’t very gay seeming, but black male waiters tend to sound like Will Smith in Six Degrees of Separation. I had a black male waiter last month who was the first black guy waiter at a sit down restaurant (as opposed to a counter clerk) who seemed like a normal black guy in I don’t know how many years.

They burned garbage bins in the middle of the road to block traffic and strewed debris and garbage throughout the street.

    The Virginia Tech massacre (now called the ”Virginia Tech shooting” in the English Wikipedia) comes to mind. It might’ve been called a ”massacre” because, at the time, it was the shooting with the most victims in the United States with a single gunman behind it, and they wanted to emphasize his feat by not calling it just another shooting. Not sure. The Las Vegas massacre is also often referred to as such.

    I’d say they were all massacres, including what happened in that Baptist church in Texas a year ago. Including what happened in Fresno in April last year. But yes, being selective in calling one a massacre and the others just ”shootings” is something the media will do.

    Warhol was in the final analysis a con man working a long con-slightly above average IQ, had the skills of a respectable but not stellar commercial artist (a tradesman if you will) and a homosexual, who employed his commercial artist skills to become “famous for being famous” and hang out with the literati, glitterati and whatever celebs that were au courant. And made a pile of money while at it.

    He was, however, an observant Catholic who attended mass regularly.

    Warhol’s con was not socially destructive and cost no one who wasn’t looking for a screwing a cent. By contrast, we can name many other con artists that have caused a great amount of trouble.

    Donna Brazille, Barbara Jordan, Bayard Rustin, James Baldwin…

    This is a strange list. The notion that Brazile is a lesbian is one promoted by Andrew Sullivan. The promoters of it do not include her. Barbara Jordan shared a house with one Nancy Earl, but the presentation of the two of them as a lesbian pair seems like more icon plunder from the gay press. That aside, these four are quite dissimilar.

    1. Brazile is a professional campaign hack. Her ideas are what serves the Democratic Party today (though she did go off script and expose some of Hellary’s scamming around; N.B. she was an established figure before the Clintons were a thing outside Arkansas).

    2. Jordan was more academic than politician and she had some actual fixed principles; she was, to take one example, a promoter of immigration control. To some extent a caricature of herself as early as age 40, there was still something of the class act about her.

    3. Rustin’s peregrinations over the years took him through the Communist Party and the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Notable about him would be the following: he was one of two notables from the era running from 1954 to 1971 who had something resembling an honest job during the remainder of his life (the other was James Farmer). (He landed a position as a research assistant at the AFL-CIO in 1964 and worked there until he retired. Farmer had a teaching position for which he was at least minimally qualified). He was also associated with Schachtmanite circles and a critic of affirmative action, and for that reason had very little influence on black politics. You’d see articles by him in small circulation publications like The New Leader, but that was it.

    4. See Joseph Epstein and Nathan Glazer on what was left of James Baldwin’s brain by 1985. The man was a poseur who wrote elegantly, but in substance a crank who said nonsensical things. He never in his adult life had any serious responsibilities. He turned in copy on time which others marketed.

    This James Polite guy, if he could be sedated and asked the right leading questions, could be great. His writing is incoherent, but I managed to recast some if it, skipping things I just could not make out, and making some guesses, and here’s what I came up with:

    Many rich, progressive Jews, like the the two Jews who “adopted” me [and tried to teach me chess], claim publicly to support egalitarianism, but although they they live in an expensive rented apartment in a gentrified neighborhood where the original blacks were shunted out, they make up for it by inviting other gentrifiers over to discuss the evils of gentrification and what can be done about it.

    Although they superficially oppose gentrification, where they spend most of their time and money is in supporting Israel, giving substantial financial resources to that cause while only giving lip service to the mistreatment of the citizens of Palestine.

    They support more jails to put black men in while opposing funding for minority schools, and would not in a million years let their own kids go to a school with any black or brown kids, other than perhaps a suburban school with a token number of the smarter blacks. And back to the jails: they complain about delays in building them, but have no problem in delaying the construction of promised affordable housing in their neighborhood.

    They spend their money drinking expensive culturally appropriated beverages [presumably not grape KoolAde], paying for water for their garden, and eating expensive out-of-season vegetables like peas and garlic.

    They now protest the deportation of illegal aliens although they weren’t so concerned about it during the Obama administration. Their dream is to get a big grant, to establish some social justice boondoggle, from a big white foundation so that they can hire pet people of color and pull down a six figure salary.

    They decorate their homes built on stolen land with art by indigenous people of color and subscribe to ritzy publications that assure them that they have done their part.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2324357/NYC-mayoral-candidate-Christine-Quinn-details-past-struggles-weeks-bully-ways-revealed.html

    James Polite, a college student who was ostracized by his family when he came out as gay as a teen, told DNAinfo how he met Quinn at a political rally and made a connection.

    He went on to intern for her at the City Council, and she wrote him college recommendation letters when he was accepted to Brandeis University.

    ‘Once he got in, I called the school to alert them that I wanted him to be watched out for and taken care of. The school must have been like, “Who the hell is this pushy broad?” But I just didn’t want anything to go badly,’ she said.

    She and Catullo paid for his textbooks, bought him a suit, and later paid for his housing in the New York University dorms during the summer holidays.

    ‘I haven’t had the same life I had before I met her. I’ve never had to worry about where I was going to get my next meal from, I haven’t had to worry about anything,’ Polite told DNAinfo.

    ‘I’ve got to be honest with you. You have Christine Quinn make a phone call for you and you get results a little more quicker.’

    He seems to be able to speak in coherent sentences when he wants to.

    And Quinn has a lengthy tweet up about him.

    Ms. Quinn, who customarily checked in with Mr. Polite almost every day, began hearing from him less. When she did talk to him, his speech and conversations were incoherent. That meant he was off his medications. And when Mr. Polite was not on his medications, that is when some of his ramblings turned anti-Semitic.

    Mental illness is rampant in the black community because of the brutal legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. Let’s hope this young man can get the help he needs. If more immigrants had been let in to work in health care, maybe this would never have happened.

    That is exactly the problem. A hundred years ago an 80 IQ person had some economic value. He could work in a dangerous job no one else wanted, like railroad brakeman before air brakes and Janney couplers or in a foundry, because if he screwed up he was the only one killed or maimed and there wasn’t much he or his dependents were going to get if he were killed or maimed. He could do something really repetitive and boring with all the skill taken out of it like bolting wheels on a Model T. He could be a farmhand.

    Automation has greatly reduced the number of very repetitive jobs and even simple, possibly dangerous jobs are not entrusted to people like that. Get coupled up setting out cars and FELA means you get a million dollars if you live. Serious foundry burns could be a million dollar judgment too.

    Assuming you are not going back to nineteenth century laissez faire, these people are liabilities and subsidizing them in some comfort in exchange for not voting or breeding is a good deal for both sides.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that James Polite was what John Derbyshire referred to in his infamous “The Talk” essay, as an “IWSB”, or an Intelligent and Well Socialized Black? As reality begins to dawn on the swifter ones, that perhaps Polite actually did have a hand in drawing the naughty symbols, the tone has taken on one of disappointment, a la “James, you’ve let us all down, and we had such plans for you to really go somewhere in life.”

    Mind you, not saying that Polite was the next Obama, but…stranger things have happened.

    Newspaper reporters are expected/allowed to “clean up” interview responses to change them into coherent sentences. This is not considered dishonest reporting, it is standard procedure and makes interview responses readable. The fact that the reporter left in a few un-grammatical phrases was his/her attempt to signal that, no, the interviewee does not speak coherently. Who can say for sure, but my guess is that the reporter’s “cleaning up” of incoherent responses was quite extensive in this case.

    I was kind of rebellious in high school. I had an English class where, for an assignment, we had to find a poem by a famous poet and read it in front of the class. Being familiar with Ginsburg, I described his work to my friends and told them that I would read some of his stuff to the class, just to be kind of a smart ass. We looked up some of his books at the library, and we read some of his poems, I realized that I might be expelled if I read that stuff to a high school English class. So I just read something else.

    As others here have commented, lefties are secretly happy about any of this mayhem that can in any way enhance their victim status, which is to say pretty much all mayhem. Black shoots black in the ghetto? That’s “structural racism” or “the legacy of redlining” or “overpolicing”/”underpolicing” (or maybe both). Jews, women and LGBQWERTYs need to be promoted to compensate! What if the facts don’t (or can’t) fit? Massacre of Christians at prayer? Mass rapes of European children? Assassinations of police officers? Jews/blacks/Muslims committing hate crimes/hoaxes? Right down the memory hole it goes. Except when it’s time to publish the hate crime statistics. Then it counts again for numbers, so long as no one brings up the actual facts of the cases.

    The Lifecycle of a White-Baiting Hate Hoax … Kansas State Univeresity

    https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/kansas/articles/2017-11-03/kansas-state-stepping-up-patrols-after-racist-incident

    https://www.snopes.com/news/2017/11/08/racist-graffiti-outrage-kansas-state-university/

    The news hit Kansas State University like a thunderclap — just months after students found a noose hanging from a tree on campus, someone painted racial slurs on a car parked at an apartment complex near campus with messages like “Go home n****r boy,” and “Whites only.”

    Police opened a criminal investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was called in. The images hit the news media and social media alike and caused a storm of controversy.

    “At the moment, minority students generally do not feel safe on campus,” Darrell Reese, president of the Black Student Union at the school, said Friday.

    Top university administrators and city leaders met with the union and other students during an emergency meeting Wednesday. Dean of Students Pat Bosco held a national Facebook Live discussion the following day to address concerns. Bosco noted the school was getting ready to announce a major gift to create a Multicultural Student Center on campus, saying the center would be a welcoming and safe place for students and “a space that drives success.”

    The university also plans to hire two new leadership positions tasked with diversity and multicultural student life issues.

    After the Hoax was Exposed …

    “Even if the incident wasn’t real the reactions are real. The good thing about our community is people get together and talk about this stuff. But the tensions here are a direct reflection of national mood right now.”

    “I would like to deeply apologize to the community. The whole situation got out of hand when it shouldn’t have even started. It was just a Halloween prank that got out of hand. I wish I could go back to that night but I can’t. I just want to apologize from the bottom of my heart for the pain and news I have brought you all.”

    The incident was so wrenching for the local community and university that the campus’s Black Student Union is calling for criminal charges to be filed against Williams. Authorities, however, declined to do so after investigating. Riley County police said in a statement that charging Williams for filing a false police report “would not be in the best interests of the citizens who comprise the Manhattan community.”

    “While Williams’ mistake had a decidedly negative impact on the community, please recognize that he, like many of us when we were young, is a young man who made a mistake and is now doing his best to own up to it.”

    Please note that there were permanent repercussions from the White-baiting hate hoax. KSU now has two new university positions for graduates of the university’s Black Studies Program.

    Black women have done better than black men in general – there’s no black male equivalent of Oprah. Since women are hypergamous it’s hard for black women to find matches among black men that are more (or even equally) accomplished, especially since accomplished black men seem to prefer white women along with everyone else. Sometimes these women can find white men but most white men are not attracted to black women. So it’s a very tough dating market among black females in the professional class.

The majority of blacks I have dealt with have brought up anti-black racism at some point in time. Who wants to deal with that day in and day out, in a life partner?

Mead was clearly one of the protected people.

    Again, if Rice is part of the protected untouchable class, that’s one thing. If she were in fact a Christian fundamentalist conservative, she would be subjected to MSM examination.

    In your fairly influential article, (“Why Lesbians Aren’t Gay) when outlining the preferences of gays vs lesbians, golf was specifically brought up. While the LPGA may have had such straights as Nancy Lopez as their public face, close to a majority of lady pro golfers are lesbian. So in a sense the larger point is made and perhaps the question is being answered. If Rice were head of a well known straight feminine organization such as Mary Kay, or say, L’oreal, that would help assuage any doubts. But golf? Therefore the questions still remain. And, wasn’t she also interested in becoming NFL commissioner as a dream job?

    No one said she isn’t intelligent, that was never in doubt. Although it can be argued that her expertise in Cold War studies, Russia, etc didn’t really help the US very much in the Middle East-based War on Terror.

    True, playing classical music isn’t macho. It can often be associated with gays. (e.g. Van Kliburn, Liberace, Elton John–started out as a classically trained pianist). Lesbians are also represented in the classical music stage (whether as conductors, pianists, singers, etc).

    Example: At CMU there is an African-American professor who teaches Foreign Affairs, etc. Kiron Skinner who was a protege under Rice back during her undergraduate days at Stanford. Charitably put, no one will ever mistake Ms. Skinner for being straight. It is fairly obvious in her case. Nothing more than an interesting coincidence or three degrees of separation, but Ms. Skinner studied under Ms. Rice and knows her fairly well. Perhaps due to the plain fact that there are so few African-Americans in the GOP power structure.

    But again, no one is arguing that Ms. Rice isn’t bright or talented. It is, however, a fair question to consider. In the nation’s capital, DC, where just about every single major player on the world stage of power, whether Congressmen, justices, Cabinet Heads, the President, etc. something about their private lives regarding having children, a love interest, etc. is fairly well documented (admittedly some are more extensively documented than others, but the information isn’t that hard to research online).

    In today’s world of the internet, research, etc. Rice is a very, very, notable exception. Therefore one has to reasonably conclude that she is at best bisexual and at worst, not straight. And apparently she is one of the untouchables.

    The left hates her because the Republicans love her. That means she’s not black or gay enough.

    A Claremont professor, for example, went to prison for trying to frame her conservative white male students with trashing her Honda.

    Yeah, but for insurance fraud. If she had just stuck to scamming the cops, then maybe no jail time.

    You appear to be confusing cause with effect. But the quandry is real – the evidence attests to a persistent rise in raw IQ scores across decades, and yet, common sense rebels against the notion.
