As I’ve mentioned before, Boyle Heights is a Los Angeles neighborhood conveniently located just east of booming downtown LA. It’s not extremely crime-ridden, just a dumpy Mexican neighborhood. The usual gentrification process is for artists and then art galleries to take the lead. But in Boyle Heights, anti-white intimidation has reversed that process.

Art galleries are leaving Boyle Heights, but more anti-gentrification battles loom on the horizon

Art galleries are leaving Boyle Heights, but more anti-gentrification battles loom on the horizon
A man walks past a mural on Anderson Street in Boyle Heights that reads “RESIST.” (Gary Coronado / Los Angeles Times)

On a warm evening in early May, gallerist Robert Zin Stark turned up for a meeting with anti-gentrification activists from the Boyle Heights Alliance Against Artwashing and Displacement (B.H.A.A.A.D.) at a tidy, century-old bungalow just west of the 101 Freeway — the offices of the neighborhood advocacy group Unión de Vecinos.

Waiting for him when he arrived was a scene worthy of insurgent agitprop: A handful of casually clad activists seated at a long table were backed by a dozen individuals in black jumpsuits and red ski masks standing shoulder to shoulder.

Is it legal under California law for a mass of masked people to assemble for the purposes of driving out a businessperson of a different race?

“There was a table with four women from the community,” recalls Stark. “And there was one folding chair on the other side for me.”

On the agenda, says Stark, the founder and director of the MaRS gallery (short for Museum as Retail Space), was a discussion about “the realities of economic violence” and the need for “people involved in the gallery system to consider where their own power comes from.”

The whole experience, he recalls, “was a little bit like ‘Clockwork Orange’ meets ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’”

The ultimate purpose of the meeting was to discuss the future of his gallery — or, to be more exact, its nonfuture. …

Whatever the stated reason for the departures, the declining number of art spaces in Boyle Heights — from more than a dozen to half that — has been greeted with satisfaction by activists.

Implied threats of violence can work in 2018 if the System thinks the masked men deserve to be the Who and the business people the Whom due to their respective races.

    True, but Steve's point is that local groups are allowed to threaten violence to stop any form of "gentrification" of which they don't approve.

    However, while activists claim to support the locals, I think it's really just about extorting a bigger cut from the would-be gentrifier.

    The link below even says explicitly "Under that ordinance, a neighborhood advisory council is assembled to provide feedback in meetings during the next two months. The council will then work with Ford to create a community benefits agreement."

    That's certainly been going on in Detroit, both at the city government level and from community "activists".

  3. Anti-gentrification work is itself a form of performance art. It’s Art vs Art! Checkmate!

  4. Artists are completely dependent on the rich – this has not changed since the Renaissance.

  5. Someone of a more entrepreneurial bent should open a gallery. Get masked people harassing him and his business. And then SUE SUE SUE the $PLC, Soros, and the Catholic Church for conspiracy and racketeering. Demanding a big payoff to drop the suit.

    Enough of this and the money cost will stop it. These goons are not showing up by themselves. Someone PAID for them to show up. So SUE THEM.

    Indeed you might even float a company based on SUING these people the way distressed bond buyers buy up junk Argentinian bonds and sue in US courts to force payments.

    You have more faith in the judiciary than I do, even without the presence of local juries. Lawyers representing the plaintiffs (probably working on contingency) would be subject to the same intimidation (and loss of other legal business) as would the plaintiffs themselves. And even sympathetic judges might find themselves the subject of harassment. Finally, defendants that can pay to bus in masked men can pay lawyers to defend them.
  6. It’s getting tough for leftists, to know who to root for. Here is my own assessment of victimology rankings EuroAmerican civilization, summer 2018. From most precious to beyond contempt. Ranks of subgroups are broken out. Some adjacent rankings score very closely and depending on whether it had been a good or bad year they can swap places.

    1) Muslim male migrants
    2) Muslim male
    3) Migrants people of color
    4) Muslim females
    5) Gays
    6) Landed People of color (Africans, Latins, Asians)
    7) Highly educated, high status white western females with access to the media.
    8 )Women
    9) Jews
    10) Hipsters, Artists, etc.
    11) SWPLs

    15) Males

  7. The impoverished members of B.H.A.A.A.D. flew to New York to protest the gentrifier artist Laura Owens’ first show at The Whitney. They seem kind of annoying, but not very intimidating. At the 7:00 mark, things heat up a bit as one protester links the gentrifying artists to Donald Trump. One of the protesters defending her “home” proudly proclaims that she is undocumented which in a rational world would be somewhat ironic.

    The housing in Boyle Heights is really dumpy. Lots of three bed one bathroom houses on small lots built in the 1910s and 1920s. Completely without charm and in poor repair. It isn't the only slum close to downtown LA, and will probably be the last one to gentrify, if ever. It could also end up getting taken over by SE Asians.

  9. In the long run I will bank on the gentrifiers. Thirty to thirty five years ago I used to see graffiti scrawled on the walls of Manhattan’s heavily Puerto Rican Lower East Side, “Fuera Yanqui…” Loisaida. Loisaida, being a portmanteauesque contraction of Lower East Sider. I always suspected that the graffiti was authored by some white hipster “artists”. In any case, gentrification won and the Lower East Side is permanently in the gentrified column, (with an ever diminishing Puerto Rican population) as are the neighborhoods of Williamsburg/Greenpoint/Bushwick across the river. Monied gentrifiers, if anything, are very patient.

    Well first, we have to acknowledge that getting gentrified is (at least for home owners) a lot better than having to flee due to increased crime and falling home prices caused by vibrants.

    And secondly, you're not seeing the bigger picture. It's understandable why some people want to maintain their neighborhood the way it is. But if this was white Anglos using violence, or the unambiguous threat thereof, to defend their neighborhood against people of a different ethnic group, it would be the top story in the fellow white media until the Coalition of Color finally beat out those Deplorables.

    Most of the commentators here seem to miss the point, which is to my mind, that everybody hates rich liberals. These brown leftists have a better understanding of what's being done to them than about 99% of the commentators on this site.

    These brown leftists have figured out that it isn't poor white conservatives that are ruing their lives, it's the rich. Meanwhile, poor whites squandered their best chance for real change in decades by falling hook, line, and sinker for the agenda of the Kochs.

    Poor brown leftists correctly diagnosed a big problem and took action to fix it. Poor whites look at their country and civilization in total collapse and decide to eliminate taxes for the useless heirs of the idle rich.

The paper has a short video with the article in which I heard Antifa chanting something ending with “punch a Nazi” and in which I saw a big banner promising “a bullet for a fash”. The paper’s article was all about the threat of violence on the part of the white marchers. Unlike the “implicit threats of violence” that Steve Sailer speaks of, these strike me as relatively explicit, but the paper’s reporters see it differently. Violence in the suppression of extremism is no vice, I guess.

    • Replies: @AndrewR
    The media is already reaping the bad karma it has sown. An NBC reporter was attacked by antifa yesterday. Remember, the media and establishment politicians have spent the last year telling us that there is no equivalence between "those who hate" (law-abiding pro-white activists) and "those who stand up against hate" (violent leftists).
  16. I keep coming back to this but it’s really amazing how modern America is just old America with the races reversed – in the bad old days (100 years ago – it feels like just yesterday) , if a minority tried to move into in a white neighborhood, some masked white Klansmen might appear and tell him that was a bad idea and that he should get out of town before sunset. And that was horrible, bad, awful. We needed the Federal government to intervene in order to end such extralegal intimidation. Call the FBI! Call the Federal marshals!

    But in American 2018, if you reverse the races, since minorities are “powerless”, this is perfectly fine, OK – no crime has been committed. The community is just resisting “gentrification” – this is right and proper.

    Gentrification is be the evil, opposite of multiculturalism. Gentrification has come to mean making an area more white. Multiculturalism means making an area less white. The former is bad while the latter is good.

    This also proves that multiculturalism is about being less white and not about diversity. For if diversity were the dominant factor that progressives claim it is, then gentrification would rightly be seen as a form of diversity since it leads to increasing diversity. If you have an area that is 90 percent Mexican, it is not diverse. If gentrification were to cause that area to become 85% Mexican and 10 percent white, then diversity has been increased.

    But the above process is instead called gentrification and denounced despite its leading to greater diversity. And the reason it's denounced is that it leads to a greater share of whites, which is counter to multiculturalism's desire for a reduction of whites.

    What is interesting is that they will defend this hypocrisy by saying the white newcomers, however small in number, are pushing up housing prices and forcing the locals to leave or make do with less disposable income.

    Yet when white ares are affected by newcomers we don't hear this. Look at the poor natives of Vancouver who have been priced out of their homes by foreign home buyers. Look at the poor natives whose school districts have been swamped by newcomers. None of them get any sympathy. But Mexicans who see their property taxes increase because a few whites are moving in are treated as victims.

    Up through the early 60s, White Anglos (and various east coast White "ethnics") used these techniques to keep Blacks out of their neighborhoods. They also wrote racially restrictive covenants to legally exclude certain groups of people. This only stopped after the federal govt stepped in.

    I actually think that our leaders are pro-gentrification, so they're on the side of the gallery owners here. However, they have to be diplomatic in their language, as being perceived as "racist" is career-killing in the current environment (which our leaders created and enforce).

    I hope the working-class Hispanics win this. It's time the working masses asserted that they have rights too.

    "Diversity" doesn't really mean diversity. It is just a code word for non-white. "We need to bring diversity to the classroom" is just a modern way of saying we need to bring in more non-whites. White people can never bring diversity by definition. White people can only decrease diversity. It's possible for a neighborhood to be really "diverse" even (especially) if is 100% black or Hispanic.

    "Diversity" in its modern sense really got its start in the Bakke affirmative action case because Justice Powell bought into " the benefits of diversity" as a legally legitimate excuse for discrimination in favor of blacks. If the brief writers had used a different word or thought of a different excuse for why it was OK to discriminate against white applicants then that would be the word - we'd all be talking about heterogeneity or multiformity or something, but diversity was the buzzword that they used and it stuck.

    One of the most brilliant things that Democrats have done in the 20th century is come up with harmless sounding euphemisms for all sorts of totalitarian schemes. A forced government pension scheme is "Social Security" - who could be against that? Bringing unqualified blacks into your classroom is bad but "diversity" - that's a wonderful thing. And so on.

Remember, the media and establishment politicians have spent the last year telling us that there is no equivalence between "those who hate" (law-abiding pro-white activists) and "those who stand up against hate" (violent leftists).

  34. The delicious irony being, gentrification is a type of internal migration, on which poor people gets displaced by richer folks.

    The mechanics at play are more or less the same as the ones making cities in Europe more and more expensive and low qualified jobs worse paid, because all migrants actually end up in the cities and competing for shit jobs and cheap flats critically contributing to the rents increases and salary “stability” in spite of inflation.

    So this Latinx-Chicanx SJWs are amusingly opposing immigration, just the one that is displacing them.

    Or file one big lawsuit with 500 John Does, and issue a spoilation order to not destroy SMS, email, and other evidence. Go into discovery and also ask for subpoenas to ID the Does. They need a Peter Thiel like bankroller. It would take the steam out of the protests for a while.

    The community is just resisting “gentrification” – this is right and proper.
     
    Gentrification is be the evil, opposite of multiculturalism. Gentrification has come to mean making an area more white. Multiculturalism means making an area less white. The former is bad while the latter is good.

    This also proves that multiculturalism is about being less white and not about diversity. For if diversity were the dominant factor that progressives claim it is, then gentrification would rightly be seen as a form of diversity since it leads to increasing diversity. If you have an area that is 90 percent Mexican, it is not diverse. If gentrification were to cause that area to become 85% Mexican and 10 percent white, then diversity has been increased.

    But the above process is instead called gentrification and denounced despite its leading to greater diversity. And the reason it's denounced is that it leads to a greater share of whites, which is counter to multiculturalism's desire for a reduction of whites.

    What is interesting is that they will defend this hypocrisy by saying the white newcomers, however small in number, are pushing up housing prices and forcing the locals to leave or make do with less disposable income.

    Yet when white ares are affected by newcomers we don't hear this. Look at the poor natives of Vancouver who have been priced out of their homes by foreign home buyers. Look at the poor natives whose school districts have been swamped by newcomers. None of them get any sympathy. But Mexicans who see their property taxes increase because a few whites are moving in are treated as victims.

    “Diversity” doesn’t really mean diversity. It is just a code word for non-white. “We need to bring diversity to the classroom” is just a modern way of saying we need to bring in more non-whites. White people can never bring diversity by definition. White people can only decrease diversity. It’s possible for a neighborhood to be really “diverse” even (especially) if is 100% black or Hispanic.

    “Diversity” in its modern sense really got its start in the Bakke affirmative action case because Justice Powell bought into ” the benefits of diversity” as a legally legitimate excuse for discrimination in favor of blacks. If the brief writers had used a different word or thought of a different excuse for why it was OK to discriminate against white applicants then that would be the word – we’d all be talking about heterogeneity or multiformity or something, but diversity was the buzzword that they used and it stuck.

    One of the most brilliant things that Democrats have done in the 20th century is come up with harmless sounding euphemisms for all sorts of totalitarian schemes. A forced government pension scheme is “Social Security” – who could be against that? Bringing unqualified blacks into your classroom is bad but “diversity” – that’s a wonderful thing. And so on.

    According to the theory, African animals evolved alongside apes that gradually evolved into hunting humanoids. So, they began to fear humans or got angry at the sight of them and tried to stomp them, like a hippo reacts whenever it sees a Negro.

    http://cdn-www.cracked.com/articleimages/wong/cute/hippocute5.jpg

    But animals in Australia and the New World evolved without the presence of apes and humanoids. (There were just some harmless monkeys.) So, when humanoids moved into their territories, the indigenous animals didn't react with much fear or rage. Early humans were small and looked pretty harmless. If they were big and growled a lot, the animals may have learned quickly. But the newcomers looked slow and pathetic. But when they got close, they hurled spears and stones at the creatures. So, the animals were caught off-guard.

    Now, this is happening with Modern People raised on globalism and cult of Diversity and Inclusion. Humans were always wary of foreigners. Why? Usually, foreigners meant invasion. Vikings, Mongols, Huns, Alexander and his army, Persians, Romans, etc. They were all invaders. In the modern era, the Anglos, French, and Spanish were great invaders. So, it made sense to be wary of foreigners. Israel is certainly wary of all those Muslims and 'African infiltrators'. And why did Palestine vanish? It could hold back the tide of Zionist migration-invasion. Whether foreigners come with weapons or wares, too many of them mean your people will be replaced or compromised.

    For much of the Cold War, wariness of foreigner mostly held, even in the West. After all, the theme for Eastern Europe was 'we are under Soviet foreign occupation'. Also, the legacy of imperialism and resistance to such made even the Left support nationalisms in Algeria, Cuba, Vietnam, and etc.
    Also, the ruling elites of US and EU were gentiles. Gentiles could accept nationalism because, even if they lost their empires, they still had their own nations, which, in many cases, were quite big. Even with collapse of Soviet Union, Russians have the biggest nation on Earth. UK and France, while not huge, are sizable nations and populations.

    But Jews never liked this arrangement because nationalism meant prioritizing the needs of gentiles in each nation. There was Israel for Jews, but it was too small for great power status. For Jewish power to grow, gentile nationalism had to be subverted in favor of Globalism. This way, Jews could gain access to every nation like with George Soros. Also, if nationalism becomes a dirty word among the gentile elites of every nation, they will serve Jewish globalists than represent and defend their gentile masses(now deemed 'far right' -- I suppose all those Eastern Europeans who resented Russian migration into their lands during the Cold War were 'far right' too.) Notice Paul Ryan finds nothing more odious than being a white politician who shows concern for white people. (But he's happy-crazy about the 3% of him that is Jewish. He is a perfect metaphor for White American Politics of both parties. Ignore or even condemn that vast majority that is white but obsess with joy and delight over the tiny majority that is Jewish.)

    As Jews took control of US and EU, the new mantra was 'diversity is our strength' and 'inclusion'. So, exposing your nation to masses of foreigners was a Good thing while defending your nation for your folks and culture was a 'pathology' and 'sickness'. A 'xenoPHOBIA'. So, among the educated and conditioned(by Pop Culture), there was a sense that a people should be welcoming of inclusion-invasion while attacking those who want to defend land, ethnos, and culture. This has made the West(but increasingly the East that imitates the West) morally and ideologically defenseless against foreign invasion. Invasion is now called 'inclusion', which basically means white people should welcome being invaded and replaced in their own homelands.

    So, if white people once looked upon foreigners with wariness and trepidation in the past -- good thinking as humans are invasive organisms, whites included -- , they are now supposed to beam with smile and laughter as their community is flooded with Somalis, Hindus, Muslims, Chinese, Mexicans, and etc. The natural and healthy anxiety and wariness have been replaced by stupid and naive trust in bogus globo-homo ideology.

    True, there are some artsies who want to move to black neighborhoods, but the way I see it, the anti-gentrification movement gives the vast majority of white progressives yet another moral and pious reason (escape route) to explain why they won’t move to the ghetto.

    I'm pretty sympathetic to working class people who want the right to live on nice real estate, especially when they were born and raised there. Why do the nice areas have to be exclusive playgrounds for the rich and famous?

    So, hordes of Mexicans can crash into America, take over entire neighborhoods, and replace the natives. Those are 'dreamers'. But how dare another group move into Mex-town and replace people there.

    From a biological viewpoint, Mexers are acting like organisms. They invade and defend what they've invaded.
    But whites have lost the instinct for defense. And also the heart for invasion(or even reconquest of lost territory). Also, while Mexican invasions are done on the cheap, white invasions(when they happen) are expensive as hell. People need lots of money to gentrify.

    According to Yuval Harari in SAPIENS, big powerful animals of the Americas and Australia didn't have a chance against humans. Unlike African beasts hat evolved alongside humans and understood how dangerous humans could be, the New World beasts just couldn't process the danger humans posed. They were like deer in headlight.

  57. How Millennials Killed Mayonnaise

    The inexorable rise of identity condiments has led to hard times for the most American of foodstuffs. And that’s a shame.

    What was missing, though, was the common foundation of all Mom’s picnic foods: mayonnaise. While I wasn’t watching, mayo’s day had come and gone. It’s too basic for contemporary tastes — pale and insipid and not nearly exotic enough for our era of globalization. Good ol’ mayo has become the Taylor Swift of condiments.

    But what young people really, really love to hate on is mayonnaise. Back in 2013, BuzzFeed ran an article titled “24 Reasons Mayonnaise Is the Devil’s Condiment.” (The writer called it “slime of Satan.”) Just three years later, BuzzFeed ran another piece, “23 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Fucking Hate Mayo.” By a different author. There was no overlap. Drew Magary penned a piece for Bon Appétit with the headline “Big Mayo Will Destroy Us All.” A movie called The Mayo Conspiracy won the Best Comedy Feature at the 2015 World’s Independent Film Festival. It concerns the gradual uncovering by a journalist of a mayonnaise cartel that plans to take over the world.

    Clearly, there’s something more to this river of resentment than a miscible mixture of eggs and oil. And it’s obvious to me that this condimental divide can be traced to young folks’ rejection of what they sneeringly consider a boring white food. Do you think 23andMe and MyHeritage and all those other DNA testing companies are flourishing because people want to find out their ancestors came from Aberdeen? Hells, no; they wannabe from Marrakesh or Manchuria or Malawi. It’s the same with condiments.

    Ketchup is pretty bland too but it's red so it's OK. Mayo is not only bland but white.

    Mayo is really not bad but the Miracle Whip type stuff where they add sugar (or nowadays high fructose corn syrup) is pretty gross. Also most commercial mayo is made with soybean oil which is better used as a paint base than as human food but it's cheap.

    Menacing is not a specific crime in California.

    I think it would be easy for galleries to target the donors to the two or three identified organizations that are organizing these protests. They have websites with donor lists and board members' names.

    Or file one big lawsuit with 500 John Does, and issue a spoilation order to not destroy SMS, email, and other evidence. Go into discovery and also ask for subpoenas to ID the Does. They need a Peter Thiel like bankroller. It would take the steam out of the protests for a while.

    But I think the problem is that the galleries are genuinely butthurt that the protesters don't want to be their friends. They should be on the same side, they're thinking. So there would be too much cognitive dissonance in filing a lawsuit. Both sides come out of California post modernist thought.

    "Diversity" doesn't really mean diversity. It is just a code word for non-white. "We need to bring diversity to the classroom" is just a modern way of saying we need to bring in more non-whites. White people can never bring diversity by definition. White people can only decrease diversity. It's possible for a neighborhood to be really "diverse" even (especially) if is 100% black or Hispanic.

    "Diversity" in its modern sense really got its start in the Bakke affirmative action case because Justice Powell bought into " the benefits of diversity" as a legally legitimate excuse for discrimination in favor of blacks. If the brief writers had used a different word or thought of a different excuse for why it was OK to discriminate against white applicants then that would be the word - we'd all be talking about heterogeneity or multiformity or something, but diversity was the buzzword that they used and it stuck.

    One of the most brilliant things that Democrats have done in the 20th century is come up with harmless sounding euphemisms for all sorts of totalitarian schemes. A forced government pension scheme is "Social Security" - who could be against that? Bringing unqualified blacks into your classroom is bad but "diversity" - that's a wonderful thing. And so on.

    True, but Steve's point is that local groups are allowed to threaten violence to stop any form of "gentrification" of which they don't approve.

    However, while activists claim to support the locals, I think it's really just about extorting a bigger cut from the would-be gentrifier.

    The link below even says explicitly "Under that ordinance, a neighborhood advisory council is assembled to provide feedback in meetings during the next two months. The council will then work with Ford to create a community benefits agreement."

    That's certainly been going on in Detroit, both at the city government level and from community "activists".

    You are as clueless as a college sophomore. If we lose our country, you are even more screwed than we are. But you just can't let go of that true-believing, can you?

    “If we lose our country, you are even more screwed than we are.”

    How are we going to lose our country when most white normies, the mushy middle, are making their own decisions about race and culture? They are exercising their liberty. I would say you are triggered about being “screwed over” and are projecting your insecurities.

    No, tens of millions of white folks here in the States have enough book smarts and/or street smarts to choose their own path. That's how liberty works, my friend.

    We do not thank you for your elitism on this matter. You are not as "woke" as you think you are.

    Most of the commentators here seem to miss the point, which is to my mind, that everybody hates rich liberals. These brown leftists have a better understanding of what's being done to them than about 99% of the commentators on this site.

    These brown leftists have figured out that it isn't poor white conservatives that are ruing their lives, it's the rich. Meanwhile, poor whites squandered their best chance for real change in decades by falling hook, line, and sinker for the agenda of the Kochs.

    Poor brown leftists correctly diagnosed a big problem and took action to fix it. Poor whites look at their country and civilization in total collapse and decide to eliminate taxes for the useless heirs of the idle rich.

    Exactly.

    Tax cuts, deregulation, and “right-to-work.”

    The White masses have been falling for this BS since the 80s. Look where it’s gotten them.

    Well first, we have to acknowledge that getting gentrified is (at least for home owners) a lot better than having to flee due to increased crime and falling home prices caused by vibrants.

    And secondly, you're not seeing the bigger picture. It's understandable why some people want to maintain their neighborhood the way it is. But if this was white Anglos using violence, or the unambiguous threat thereof, to defend their neighborhood against people of a different ethnic group, it would be the top story in the fellow white media until the Coalition of Color finally beat out those Deplorables. If mestizos do it to hhhwhite art gallery owners, no hay problema.

    Up through the early 60s, White Anglos (and various east coast White “ethnics”) used these techniques to keep Blacks out of their neighborhoods. They also wrote racially restrictive covenants to legally exclude certain groups of people. This only stopped after the federal govt stepped in.

    I actually think that our leaders are pro-gentrification, so they’re on the side of the gallery owners here. However, they have to be diplomatic in their language, as being perceived as “racist” is career-killing in the current environment (which our leaders created and enforce).

    I hope the working-class Hispanics win this. It’s time the working masses asserted that they have rights too.

    So, hordes of Mexicans can crash into America, take over entire neighborhoods, and replace the natives. Those are 'dreamers'. But how dare another group move into Mex-town and replace people there.

    From a biological viewpoint, Mexers are acting like organisms. They invade and defend what they've invaded.
    But whites have lost the instinct for defense. And also the heart for invasion(or even reconquest of lost territory). Also, while Mexican invasions are done on the cheap, white invasions(when they happen) are expensive as hell. People need lots of money to gentrify.

    According to Yuval Harari in SAPIENS, big powerful animals of the Americas and Australia didn't have a chance against humans. Unlike African beasts hat evolved alongside humans and understood how dangerous humans could be, the New World beasts just couldn't process the danger humans posed. They were like deer in headlight.

    White people knew the truth, but combination of PC guilt-peddling and amnesiac-inducing about the West -- even UK was a nation of immigrants, we are told -- have made them utterly defenseless. They will go the way of the mammoth and giant sloth.

    Interesting thoughts, a bit like the same I’ve said, but expanded.

    We could call it the “grizzly man” syndrome.

    Most Westerners (European ancestry) have astonishingly forgotten not only that humans are basically territorial animals, but also that they are arguably the most dangerous animals on Earth. And, like the moronic soy boy Timothy Treadwell, they firmly believe all humans are as harmless, friendly and “tolerant” as they themselves are. False consensus bias plus antropomorphism at work.

    I agree but wonder if anyone had/has sympathy for the working class whites who were displaced from these same neighborhoods 50-60 years ago.

    At UR we pretty much all do.

    According to wiki Boyle Heights was a heavily Jewish neighborhood way back when. So what happened? Were the Jews driven out by violence, or did they move out when they got money, or what?

    "Unlike African beasts hat evolved alongside humans and understood how dangerous humans could be"

    I personally don't understand the argument. why did they not eat all the animals, starting with the babies that could not run eventually killing the herd. IMO humans could not best insect born parasites and other biological hazards. Not to mention crop pests.

    I personally don’t understand the argument. why did they not eat all the animals, starting with the babies that could not run eventually killing the herd. IMO humans could not best insect born parasites and other biological hazards. Not to mention crop pests.

    According to the theory, African animals evolved alongside apes that gradually evolved into hunting humanoids. So, they began to fear humans or got angry at the sight of them and tried to stomp them, like a hippo reacts whenever it sees a Negro.

    But animals in Australia and the New World evolved without the presence of apes and humanoids. (There were just some harmless monkeys.) So, when humanoids moved into their territories, the indigenous animals didn’t react with much fear or rage. Early humans were small and looked pretty harmless. If they were big and growled a lot, the animals may have learned quickly. But the newcomers looked slow and pathetic. But when they got close, they hurled spears and stones at the creatures. So, the animals were caught off-guard.

    Now, this is happening with Modern People raised on globalism and cult of Diversity and Inclusion. Humans were always wary of foreigners. Why? Usually, foreigners meant invasion. Vikings, Mongols, Huns, Alexander and his army, Persians, Romans, etc. They were all invaders. In the modern era, the Anglos, French, and Spanish were great invaders. So, it made sense to be wary of foreigners. Israel is certainly wary of all those Muslims and ‘African infiltrators’. And why did Palestine vanish? It could hold back the tide of Zionist migration-invasion. Whether foreigners come with weapons or wares, too many of them mean your people will be replaced or compromised.

    For much of the Cold War, wariness of foreigner mostly held, even in the West. After all, the theme for Eastern Europe was ‘we are under Soviet foreign occupation’. Also, the legacy of imperialism and resistance to such made even the Left support nationalisms in Algeria, Cuba, Vietnam, and etc.
    Also, the ruling elites of US and EU were gentiles. Gentiles could accept nationalism because, even if they lost their empires, they still had their own nations, which, in many cases, were quite big. Even with collapse of Soviet Union, Russians have the biggest nation on Earth. UK and France, while not huge, are sizable nations and populations.

    But Jews never liked this arrangement because nationalism meant prioritizing the needs of gentiles in each nation. There was Israel for Jews, but it was too small for great power status. For Jewish power to grow, gentile nationalism had to be subverted in favor of Globalism. This way, Jews could gain access to every nation like with George Soros. Also, if nationalism becomes a dirty word among the gentile elites of every nation, they will serve Jewish globalists than represent and defend their gentile masses(now deemed ‘far right’ — I suppose all those Eastern Europeans who resented Russian migration into their lands during the Cold War were ‘far right’ too.) Notice Paul Ryan finds nothing more odious than being a white politician who shows concern for white people. (But he’s happy-crazy about the 3% of him that is Jewish. He is a perfect metaphor for White American Politics of both parties. Ignore or even condemn that vast majority that is white but obsess with joy and delight over the tiny majority that is Jewish.)

    As Jews took control of US and EU, the new mantra was ‘diversity is our strength’ and ‘inclusion’. So, exposing your nation to masses of foreigners was a Good thing while defending your nation for your folks and culture was a ‘pathology’ and ‘sickness’. A ‘xenoPHOBIA’. So, among the educated and conditioned(by Pop Culture), there was a sense that a people should be welcoming of inclusion-invasion while attacking those who want to defend land, ethnos, and culture. This has made the West(but increasingly the East that imitates the West) morally and ideologically defenseless against foreign invasion. Invasion is now called ‘inclusion’, which basically means white people should welcome being invaded and replaced in their own homelands.

    So, if white people once looked upon foreigners with wariness and trepidation in the past — good thinking as humans are invasive organisms, whites included — , they are now supposed to beam with smile and laughter as their community is flooded with Somalis, Hindus, Muslims, Chinese, Mexicans, and etc. The natural and healthy anxiety and wariness have been replaced by stupid and naive trust in bogus globo-homo ideology.

    I have a hard time condemning anyone who's trying to defend their home from outsiders.

    If you grew up in some area and outsiders were using their superior resources/tactics to drive you out, it's not a bad idea to fight back.

    I'm pretty sympathetic to working class people who want the right to live on nice real estate, especially when they were born and raised there. Why do the nice areas have to be exclusive playgrounds for the rich and famous?

    I have a hard time condemning anyone who’s trying to defend their home from outsiders.

    Agreed. I also have a hard time feeling sympathy for artists and gallery owners, surely among the most worthless of all living creatures. Personally the idea of art galleries getting shut down pleases me immensely.

    Maybe we should say white people are evil, toxic, and all nazis. And for that very reason, non-whites must be kept away from whites as much as possible.

    White People's new motto must be "We are evil, we are toxic, we are dangerous, we are the cancer of history, we are the plague of history. Stay away from us. Our evil is very infectious."

    Problem solved. No more immigration-invasion.

    Maybe we should say white people are evil, toxic, and all nazis.

    But gentrifiers are scum. White people are not necessarily in the right just because they’re white. These gentrifiers are rich while liberals, 99.9% of them would be Democrat voters, half are probably homosexual. They’re not evil and toxic because they’re white people but these particular white people are evil and toxic.

    This is a class issue, not a race issue. It’s elite-class people thinking they have the right to steal poor people’s neighbourhoods.
