From the Washington Post:

Editor’s note related to Lincoln Memorial incident

By Washington Post Staff March 1 at 5:17 PM

A Washington Post article first posted online on Jan. 19 reported on a Jan. 18 incident at the Lincoln Memorial. Subsequent reporting, a student’s statement and additional video allow for a more complete assessment of what occurred, either contradicting or failing to confirm accounts provided in that story — including that Native American activist Nathan Phillips was prevented by one student from moving on, that his group had been taunted by the students in the lead-up to the encounter, and that the students were trying to instigate a conflict. The high school student facing Phillips issued a statement contradicting his account; the bishop in Covington, Ky., apologized for the statement condemning the students; and an investigation conducted for the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School found the students’ accounts consistent with videos. Subsequent Post coverage, including video, reported these developments: “Viral standoff between a tribal elder and a high schooler is more complicated than it first seemed”; “Kentucky bishop apologizes to Covington Catholic students, says he expects their exoneration”; “Investigation finds no evidence of ‘racist or offensive statements’ in Mall incident.”

So, not exactly an apology …

A Jan. 22 correction to the original story reads: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips said he served in the U.S. Marines but was never deployed to Vietnam.

So that’s basically an apology to Nathan Phillips for not quoting his weasel-words about serving in, IIRC, “Vietnam times” precisely enough and thinking it meant he served in Vietnam.

The Washington Post will likely try to memory hole Covington the way that the media successfully made the UVA fraternity ritual gang rape on broken glass hate hoax sound too boring to remember: Mistakes were made because proper journalistic methodology was not wholly followed; moreover, appropriate journalistic methods were not always implemented leading to the making of mistakes, etc etc etc etc

So, you can expect to hear a lot of in-depth discussion on the tedious questions involving exactly what Nathan Phillips claimed about his military service and how that should have been reported more carefully.

But, nah, this was wholly a “Who? Whom?” Rorschach test of what’s in the hearts of too many people in the media. You look at a picture of a boy smiling at an alcoholic drifter banging his drum in the boy’s face and you instantly conclude that the smiling lad is The Evil Enemy.

iSteve commenter James Speaks observes:

In the minds(?) of the WaPo staff, it is not possible to commit acts of bigotry against males, whites, (Roman) Catholics or gentiles. In their understanding, bigotry isn’t an act of committed by group A against group B. Bigotry to them is any action by whites etc that causes feelz bad in their in group.

An act of contrition that would mean something would be to force them to use abstract thinking and define objectively the acts that any group commits against any other group that are bigotry without naming the groups beforehand.

What America needs is a National Conversation about how this incident reveals the depth of prejudice and hate against males, whites, Catholics, and gentiles.

My suggestion: As part of the settlement of this lawsuit, all Washington Post employees should be required to take an eight hour diversity sensitivity training course on how in the future they must be on guard against their bigotry, both explicit and implicit, against males, whites, Catholics, and gentiles. Moreover, the Post should agree to publish a front page article written by experts chosen by the victims documenting how the Post’s anti-Core American bias contributed to this fiasco.

    We could discuss how Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye made us feel self-loathing back in the day. Discussed it with a girlfriend back in university days, and the convo stuck with me. Today, we feel a pain similar to that of Morrison’s protagonist — except that we have blue eyes, and everyone hates us. I didn’t bother to read the book. But I grokked the theme well enough. My heart sinks at LAX or JFK, as no one looks like me, going through customs. Why are my eyes an ugly blue, and not brown, like AOC’s (BTW, she’s cute)? No one wants to tough my hair 🙁

  12. Whites finally pushed back ever so gently, causing the media to pull back ever so gently.

    The media’s reaction to these hoaxes and hate crimes was never about the truthfulness of them, which is why pointing how stupid they are is just as stupid. It was – and always will be – about power.

    Logic and facts will not stop the anti-(gentile) white crusade in this country. (Sorry Steve.) The other side will stop when it costs them more to hurt whites than they gain.

    You’ll notice that the media doesn’t mess around with Muslims. Is that because Muslims are such great debaters? Yeah, right. No, it’s because Muslims fight back, both legally and on the streets.

    Great comment. Nailed it.

    It's not about truth at all. Totally about power. Until the mean benefits of perpetrating hate hoaxes fall below the mean costs (and we're a long way from that) then hate hoaxes will continue. Logic and facts are totally irrelevant. It will get far worse before it gets better.

    One reason they might not "mess around" with Muslims is Muslims are (1) a tiny % of the population, (2) are loyal members of the anti-White coalition.

    "You’ll notice that the media doesn’t mess around with Muslims. Is that because Muslims are such great debaters? Yeah, right. No, it’s because Muslims fight back, both legally and on the streets."

    I respond:

    Muslims responding with violence or threats of violence is one reason the Media/Left doesn't dare criticize Muslims. The bigger reason is that in domestic politics in the West (Europe, UK, USA, Australia, Canada) Muslims are on the domestic Liberal Left team, sometimes there are arguments with dominant Liberal Left Jews about Israel/Palestine but that's the only issue there are divisions. Muslims and Jews both vote > 80% Lib Left Democrat or in the UK Lib Left Labour. Everything is about "empowering" non White Christian peoples.

    most whites did not have courage to face the fact that their asses are getting kicked by various organized minorities. Wussified as a race, they dare not to fight back. I can hear Founding fathers weeping in their coffins.

    Their first article was clear libel, but this is also false:

    “Subsequent Post coverage, including video, reported these developments: “Viral standoff between a tribal elder and a high schooler is more complicated than it first seemed””

    The “more complicated than it first seemed” article does get the basic truth that Sandmann and his classmaes didn’t block/surround/assult Phillips and yell racial slurs right. But the headline and content are still very dishonest.

    It wasn’t “more complicated.” It was a case of a creepy old man walking 50+ place feet toward some high school boys, getting in thier faces and banging on a trum, then telling the media complete and utter lies about them.

    Further, the subsequent WaPo article never mentions that Phillips told the media a big stack of lies about himself and the incident. Nor his criminal record and repeated claims to have fought in Vietnam. The “correction” makes it seems like it was a reporter confusing Vietnam Era vet with Vietnam Vet. That does happen. In fact, Phillips is on video multiple times lying about it in his nasty slurring dry drunk way.

    • Replies: @Forbes
    Actually, "more complicated than it first seemed" adds to the misleading and slanderous reporting, IMO. The situation wasn't complicated in the least--it was straightforward.

    It was reporting construing the events other than as they actually occurred that makes correcting the record and explaining their negligence more complicated. (There's nothing complicated about an "own goal.") The WaPo, among others, attributed motivation and intent to the school kids (Sandman, particularly) who simply stood still and did nothing.

    Media reported on students wearing red MAGA hats as a bull does in a bullfighting ring reacting to the matador's red cape--charging straight ahead impervious to the consequences (as they assume there wouldn't or couldn't be any consequences).

    "More complicated" is a lame rationalization for having one's overt and conscious prejudice exposed.

    Agreed; but then I get to thinking. A judge or jury in today's America would likely be more interested in making a statement, the very kind the Washington Post likes. As someone else says here: "Facts complicate narratives." We've little reason to believe that legal proceedings in the Current Year are going to favor the former at the expense of the latter, particularly in a high-profile action.

    Courtrooms are currently very much a part of the Apparatus, each and every component of which is aimed at our dispossession, disempowerment, and eventually our destruction. We must choose our battles very carefully.

    If I had to guess, the phrasing was negotiated word by word as part of a confidential legal settlement with Nicholas. The WaPo has great lawyers who must have fought relentlessly and this is the most that they would agree to print - not much of a concession. Probably they threw in some $ to sweeten the bitter pill. Losing face for Bezos is a big deal but he has tons of money to throw around.
  27. Black’s Law Dictionary defines libel as “a defamatory statement expressed in a fixed medium, esp. writing but also a picture, sign or electronic broadcast”. Defamation is the act of harming the reputation of another by making a false statement to a third person.

    The Covington kid (Nicholas Sandmann) was defamed by the Washington Post. Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post and additionally founder, chairman, CEO, and president of Amazon and the richest man on earth might owe the kid a lot of money for libel and defamation.

    We could discuss how Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye made us feel self-loathing back in the day. Discussed it with a girlfriend back in university days, and the convo stuck with me. Today, we feel a pain similar to that of Morrison's protagonist -- except that we have blue eyes, and everyone hates us. I didn't bother to read the book. But I grokked the theme well enough. My heart sinks at LAX or JFK, as no one looks like me, going through customs. Why are my eyes an ugly blue, and not brown, like AOC's (BTW, she's cute)? No one wants to tough my hair :(

    Not really.

    I admit the comparative aspect. But in making that sort of comparison one should also note the "stranger" aspect here. It's one thing to have people who act violently in some sort of complex personal relationship--ex. sexual relationship, contention with family, friends, associates. Those things are complicated and the other party may have had some measure of control. It's another thing when you can't walk down the sidewalk without some loon attacking you. (Same concept applies to muggings, carjackings, stranger assaults, rapes, etc.)

    Realistically she's simply unfit for civilized society and should be exiled or put down.

    As i've noted before, i'm a huge proponent of nationalism as the path to prosperity and peace. However, this idea of a particular people occupying and controlling a particular explicitly defined piece of territory, has created this general issue of dealing people who simply refuse to accept\conform to the culture--traditions, norms, rules--of the nation's people. In ancient times, it used to be you wanted to do your own thing ... fine, go off and do it. Now we normals have to put up with a whole lot more assholery because "citizens" have a "right" to be here. And we have to let assholes we aren't willing to execute back into society or pay to warehouse them for life.

    Her's is not a hard care. In an ideal polity, we'd be able to just judge her as a useless and dangerous POS--which she obviously is--and do whatever punishment was warrnated. 100 lashes? And then expell her from the nation.

    Unfortunately we're not an ideal polity. And we've lost the basic right of any people to expel. So our society is littered with human garbage wandering around making life shittier for decent civilized people.

    Not that it has any bearing on the case, but it would be interesting on several levels to learn whether or not Emmett Till knew anything about who his father was, what he had done, and what had become of him. After all, the kid was only 14, and his father was executed overseas, his knowledge of Till, Sr. may have been scant.

    Was he in the dark about his father? Had he been lied to, or misinformed? Was it perhaps just not spoken of? Conversely, if he did know, was he ashamed? In denial? Resentful? Vengeance-seeking?

    Doesn't influence the case at all, but could shed some light on behavior-psych periphery.
  45. Anon[191] • Disclaimer says:

    The problem with this lawsuit and with almost all other such media lawsuits is that the real defendent is never sued. In my opinion, the goal of such lawsuits should be the personal life destruction of the individuals who made the decisions that proximately caused the defamation. To a corporation like the Washington post a six digit judgment is not going to destroy any individual’s finances, dreams, marriages or lifestyles, which should be the goal. To obtain both general and specific deterance, the lives of individuals need to be destroyed.

    Peter Thiel did that by financing a lawsuit against A.J. Delaurio as part of his Gawker crusade. Delaurio’s ongoing pathetic-ass story functions as deterence to smartass journalists who may be considering following in his footsteps, but we need more of these stories, and we need them against normal SJW reporters and editors, not just the complete assholes like Gawker writers.

    So why wasn’t Jackie Coakley sued, personally, rather than Rolling Stone? In that case was the journalist even sued? Maybe by the college administrator? I can’t remember. But Jackie should have been sued, with the goal of putting her through hell, not necessarily winning. Any complainant in a campus Title IX proceding should be personally sued in civil court by her target.

    The “tribal elder” should be a defendant. Heck, his sidekicks also. Add 20 John Does. Of course you cannot get any money out of him, and he doesn’t have much life left, but make what he has a living hell.

    The Canadian grad student sued her professors, as did Jordan Peterson, and there is some evidence online that their lives are quasi-destroyed, and there is still a lot of litigation remaining in those cases.

    Of course, lawsuits cost money: More Thiel-like billionaires should be recruited.

    I think it was considered bad PR to go after Jackie or the elder. So what? Destroy them. Sue the journalists. Do not sue their employers. There are various defenses they might put forward, and the employer may end up a defendant against your will, but maybe not. If the employer doesn’t end up a defendant, the odds of the journalist’s attorney’s fees being underwritten are slim. We’re talking GoFundMe at this point. With enough lawsuits, GoFundMe will run dry. Donors will get bored and go on to the next thing.

    With a track record of destroyed journalist lifes, early on in any news dust-up a victim could simply send a document describing what has happened to writers in the past, plus a preservation of evidence order, and that will act as a specific deterent to that writer.

    "I am hopeful that it will be overturned on appeal but then I was very surprised that charges were brought in the first place so what do I know"

    According to Patrick Parkinson (who was asked to investigate abuse in some Australian monastic order, only to see the worst offenders whisked off to Asia in order to escape justice), Catholic clergy in Australia have committed six times more abuse than all other religions combined, though a big reason for that is because they took the lead (as Catholics frequently do) in building orphanages and schools and shelters, which attract a lot of pedophiles. That's a horrific statistic, no getting around it. The secular experts didn't help much either -- up until the mid-70's, psychologists assured us that "A sexual episode would cause little harm to a child, provided the police or courts did not ‘make an issue’ of it..." and as late as the early 90's, psychologists were touting techniques for rehabilitating child molesters in favor of incarceration. Catholics get a bad and unfair rap for not listening to scientists, but in this case, not listening to them would have worked out a lot better for all concerned, though that stupidity was compounded by a large helping of clerical evil and depraved indifference of their own devising.

    Pell is now being turned into a scapegoat for that, even though he helped take on the machine that allowed this disaster to happen. Having read about the particulars of his case, I, too, hope the verdict gets overturned, but it's worth noting that the reason he is in this mess to begin with is largely because of all the shenanigans of the Catholic clergy's old-boys-network that people like Parkinson documented.

If any reader’s planning to walk the magnificent Pembrokeshire Coast Path, his mother, St Non, has a shrine and holy well which you’ll find on the path, high above the sea, near the cathedral village of St David’s.

    Also on the site are the remains of her original chapel, built on the site of a stone circle. The well water has healing properties – many such cases !

  70. OT: Good fun in the Guardian today. An Equalities body has issued a report pushing for more positive discrimination in apprenticeships because too many white men are getting them… the detail notes that a branch of the UK’s police force has tried to do what they’ve been told, only to be found guilty of positive discrimination!

    https://www.theguardian.com/higher-education-network/2019/mar/02/apprenticeships-should-be-used-to-improve-equality

    But the commission warns that too many companies “are hesitant about using positive action because they’re worried about inadvertently discriminating against others”. Last week Cheshire police were found guilty of discriminating against a white, heterosexual 25-year-old man because it used positive action in an unlawful way. Matthew Furlong, 25, applied to join the service in 2017 but lost out to other candidates. An employment tribunal found Furlong had been discriminated against on the basis of his sexual orientation, race and sex.

    The commission said ignorance of the law was holding back some employers in opening up apprenticeships to minorities. “Employers need to take a confident and pro-active approach if they are really going to make a difference here,” Hilsenrath said. “Unfortunately employers such as Cheshire police falling foul of the law due to a lack of understanding add to this fear. In reality, when used correctly, positive action is a powerful way for employers to address skills shortages and foster inclusive and diverse working environments that allow everyone to reach their full potential.”

    ‘A lack of understanding’ indeed – you’re not supposed to tell anyone this is what your doing, fools! Just get on with it!

    Their first article was clear libel, but this is also false:

    "Subsequent Post coverage, including video, reported these developments: “Viral standoff between a tribal elder and a high schooler is more complicated than it first seemed”"

    The "more complicated than it first seemed" article does get the basic truth that Sandmann and his classmaes didn't block/surround/assult Phillips and yell racial slurs right. But the headline and content are still very dishonest.

    It wasn't "more complicated." It was a case of a creepy old man walking 50+ place feet toward some high school boys, getting in thier faces and banging on a trum, then telling the media complete and utter lies about them.

    Further, the subsequent WaPo article never mentions that Phillips told the media a big stack of lies about himself and the incident. Nor his criminal record and repeated claims to have fought in Vietnam. The "correction" makes it seems like it was a reporter confusing Vietnam Era vet with Vietnam Vet. That does happen. In fact, Phillips is on video multiple times lying about it in his nasty slurring dry drunk way.

    Actually, “more complicated than it first seemed” adds to the misleading and slanderous reporting, IMO. The situation wasn’t complicated in the least–it was straightforward.

    It was reporting construing the events other than as they actually occurred that makes correcting the record and explaining their negligence more complicated. (There’s nothing complicated about an “own goal.”) The WaPo, among others, attributed motivation and intent to the school kids (Sandman, particularly) who simply stood still and did nothing.

    Media reported on students wearing red MAGA hats as a bull does in a bullfighting ring reacting to the matador’s red cape–charging straight ahead impervious to the consequences (as they assume there wouldn’t or couldn’t be any consequences).

    “More complicated” is a lame rationalization for having one’s overt and conscious prejudice exposed.

    If we are talking about anti Catholicism in a dominant SJW culture check out the George Pell case in Australia . I don't know if this has had any major coverage in the US but in significance it may be a modern Dreyfus case
    ( I am well aware that stories without an American angle are at best footnotes in US media )

    I am hopeful that it will be overturned on appeal but then I was very surprised that charges were brought in the first place so what do I know

    “I am hopeful that it will be overturned on appeal but then I was very surprised that charges were brought in the first place so what do I know”

    According to Patrick Parkinson (who was asked to investigate abuse in some Australian monastic order, only to see the worst offenders whisked off to Asia in order to escape justice), Catholic clergy in Australia have committed six times more abuse than all other religions combined, though a big reason for that is because they took the lead (as Catholics frequently do) in building orphanages and schools and shelters, which attract a lot of pedophiles. That’s a horrific statistic, no getting around it. The secular experts didn’t help much either — up until the mid-70’s, psychologists assured us that “A sexual episode would cause little harm to a child, provided the police or courts did not ‘make an issue’ of it…” and as late as the early 90’s, psychologists were touting techniques for rehabilitating child molesters in favor of incarceration. Catholics get a bad and unfair rap for not listening to scientists, but in this case, not listening to them would have worked out a lot better for all concerned, though that stupidity was compounded by a large helping of clerical evil and depraved indifference of their own devising.

    Pell is now being turned into a scapegoat for that, even though he helped take on the machine that allowed this disaster to happen. Having read about the particulars of his case, I, too, hope the verdict gets overturned, but it’s worth noting that the reason he is in this mess to begin with is largely because of all the shenanigans of the Catholic clergy’s old-boys-network that people like Parkinson documented.

    The time is coming, whether it's right or not, whether it's white people refusing to embrace extinction or whether it's what's left after white people are extinct, when someone will start to talk about Emmett Till or Anne Frank, and will be interrupted by spit or laughter
    The thing bringing that closer is the furious efforts to fight phantom Nazis, and to lecture people about how some historical events are gospel and some are just not who we were.

    Not that it has any bearing on the case, but it would be interesting on several levels to learn whether or not Emmett Till knew anything about who his father was, what he had done, and what had become of him. After all, the kid was only 14, and his father was executed overseas, his knowledge of Till, Sr. may have been scant.

    Was he in the dark about his father? Had he been lied to, or misinformed? Was it perhaps just not spoken of? Conversely, if he did know, was he ashamed? In denial? Resentful? Vengeance-seeking?

    Doesn’t influence the case at all, but could shed some light on behavior-psych periphery.

    A major problem in living with blacks (or anyone else, but especially blacks) that the multikult has no answer for is that of course you never see perfectly eye to eye, and often there will be divergent alternative histories. I do not know but expect that Till was told about the injustice and unfairness of white rule in general (I assume this was a general atmosphere), regardless of what he was told about his father specifically, and the one explanation would work for the other. It is seen very often with black criminals that they are deeply cynical about the justice system and this is often taken to be a result of their personal situation, but those kids growing up hearing from rap and community organizers that there is no justice.
    , @anarchyst
    There is much more to the "Emmett Till" story that is not widely known. Of course, killing him was wrong, (and made him into a "martyr" of the black "civil-rights" movement). but--it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.--NOT a "little boy" as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky "Chicago ways" in dealing with women to the Deep South. He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a "cocky attitude" and bragged about "getting it on" with white women--not a good idea in the South. . . According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just "whistle" at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman. In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect. Despite Mr. Till's relatives' attempts to spirit him "out of town" to avoid retribution by the woman's relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude "got in the way", similar to the way that "young master Trayvon's" attitude got him killed. Despite being given numerous "chances" to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.
    It is interesting to note that Emmett Till's father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes. Maybe "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" . . .
    As a postscript, the woman who accused Emmett Till of fondling her professed on her deathbed that the incident did not take place as originally described. This may have been remorse for Till's killing, but does not negate the fact that Till was a "white womanizer" at a particularly difficult time for blacks.

    In the minds(?) of the WaPo staff, it is not possible to commit acts of bigotry against males, whites, (Roman) Catholics or gentiles.

If Victim B is White, male, Christian, straight, (viz., Nazi) then there is no such thing as "unprovoked."

    Jack, you're either missing or ignoring my point.

    My point is that having this geographic entity "the nation state" to go along with a people\nation is overall a great thing, but one--big--negative is that we then have to put up with people who are nominal citizens but actually do not want to the norms, values, rules of the nation... simply because we don't have a place to dump them.

    Expanding the thought ...

    It would be great if all the nations of the world could just have a common dumping ground where they could expel the a*holes to. Someplace like New Guinea would be great--though i'm sure the folks there might not like the idea much.

    Being expelled would be like being put on waivers. You could make your case to other nations and if they wanted you--i.e. your offense was behavior incompatible with the norms of nation A, but nation B though you were just peach--they could pick you up.

    So for example Zachary Greenberg--maybe (after we split the US) Rainbowtopia, the Jewish SJW\coalition-of-the-fringes-land would pick him up after civilized America kicked him out. (Although if the split was done properly, he would have been in SJWhe should have been there in the first place) But for people like Laquisha here, there wouldn't be any pickup. All nations would find her useless. So she'd just have to make her life in the DumpingGround.

    Why does it matter that some of her ancestors may have been in North America 400 years ago? Blacks weren't considered citizens until late in the 19th century, and until recently weren't considered "American". A freckled faced Irish immigrant, or swarthy Southern European immigrant was always considered more loyal and more American. Blacks, for better or worse, are very rarely patriotic and usually despise the US and its history.

It's one thing to have people who act violently in some sort of complex personal relationship--ex. sexual relationship, contention with family, friends, associates. Those things are complicated and the other party may have had some measure of control. It's another thing when you can't walk down the sidewalk without some loon attacking you. (Same concept applies to muggings, carjackings, stranger assaults, rapes, etc.)

    Realistically she's simply unfit for civilized society and should be exiled or put down.

    As i've noted before, i'm a huge proponent of nationalism as the path to prosperity and peace. However, this idea of a particular people occupying and controlling a particular explicitly defined piece of territory, has created this general issue of dealing people who simply refuse to accept\conform to the culture--traditions, norms, rules--of the nation's people. In ancient times, it used to be you wanted to do your own thing ... fine, go off and do it. Now we normals have to put up with a whole lot more assholery because "citizens" have a "right" to be here. And we have to let assholes we aren't willing to execute back into society or pay to warehouse them for life.

    Her's is not a hard care. In an ideal polity, we'd be able to just judge her as a useless and dangerous POS--which she obviously is--and do whatever punishment was warrnated. 100 lashes? And then expell her from the nation.

    Unfortunately we're not an ideal polity. And we've lost the basic right of any people to expel. So our society is littered with human garbage wandering around making life shittier for decent civilized people.

    This is not some Mexican alien (ironically the man she beat up was). Blacks have been here for 400 years. Her ancestors probably got here before your ancestors. Yes, when slavery was over we should have shipped most of them back, but it wasn't done. She is, for better or worse (mostly worse) an American citizen.

    Ideally she would have been trained better on how to behave in civilized society long before she took that brick to that poor old man, but I don't know whether that would have helped - she clearly had very poor impulse control and went off like like a wild animal.

    Jack, you’re either missing or ignoring my point.

    My point is that having this geographic entity “the nation state” to go along with a people\nation is overall a great thing, but one–big–negative is that we then have to put up with people who are nominal citizens but actually do not want to the norms, values, rules of the nation… simply because we don’t have a place to dump them.

    Expanding the thought …

    It would be great if all the nations of the world could just have a common dumping ground where they could expel the a*holes to. Someplace like New Guinea would be great–though i’m sure the folks there might not like the idea much.

    Being expelled would be like being put on waivers. You could make your case to other nations and if they wanted you–i.e. your offense was behavior incompatible with the norms of nation A, but nation B though you were just peach–they could pick you up.

    So for example Zachary Greenberg–maybe (after we split the US) Rainbowtopia, the Jewish SJW\coalition-of-the-fringes-land would pick him up after civilized America kicked him out. (Although if the split was done properly, he would have been in SJWhe should have been there in the first place) But for people like Laquisha here, there wouldn’t be any pickup. All nations would find her useless. So she’d just have to make her life in the DumpingGround.

    Ok, but you are thinking in "theory".

    Those of us living in reality understand that there already is one dumping ground country - our country the United States of America.

    This was most obvious during the lat 1970s when Fidel Castro simply cleared out his prisons and his insane asylums and dumped the worst of the worst from Communist Cuba on South Florida. Instead of sinking the boats, deporting every last one of these creatures, Jimmy Carter US government accepted all them and came up with all kinds of "programs" to help them. This along with the humiliations of the Iranian Islamists hold Americans hostage for over a year led to the frustrations that earned Ronald Reagan a 49 state sweep victory.

There’s no “objective” vacuum: all situations are, well, situational. Correct Pokemon points are an integral part of the equation: there is no objective Actor X hits Victim B unprovoked — right or wrong? If Victim B is White, male, Christian, straight, (viz., Nazi) then there is no such thing as “unprovoked.” You see how this works: it is impossible for White women to be raped, racism against Whites cannot exist (note carefully: it isn’t “does not exist,” it’s “CANNOT exist” etc.

    Why does it matter that some of her ancestors may have been in North America 400 years ago? Blacks weren’t considered citizens until late in the 19th century, and until recently weren’t considered “American”. A freckled faced Irish immigrant, or swarthy Southern European immigrant was always considered more loyal and more American. Blacks, for better or worse, are very rarely patriotic and usually despise the US and its history.

    The problem with this lawsuit and with almost all other such media lawsuits is that the real defendent is never sued. In my opinion, the goal of such lawsuits should be the personal life destruction of the individuals who made the decisions that proximately caused the defamation. To a corporation like the Washington post a six digit judgment is not going to destroy any individual's finances, dreams, marriages or lifestyles, which should be the goal. To obtain both general and specific deterance, the lives of individuals need to be destroyed.

    Peter Thiel did that by financing a lawsuit against A.J. Delaurio as part of his Gawker crusade. Delaurio's ongoing pathetic-ass story functions as deterence to smartass journalists who may be considering following in his footsteps, but we need more of these stories, and we need them against normal SJW reporters and editors, not just the complete assholes like Gawker writers.

    So why wasn't Jackie Coakley sued, personally, rather than Rolling Stone? In that case was the journalist even sued? Maybe by the college administrator? I can't remember. But Jackie should have been sued, with the goal of putting her through hell, not necessarily winning. Any complainant in a campus Title IX proceding should be personally sued in civil court by her target.

    The "tribal elder" should be a defendant. Heck, his sidekicks also. Add 20 John Does. Of course you cannot get any money out of him, and he doesn't have much life left, but make what he has a living hell.

    The Canadian grad student sued her professors, as did Jordan Peterson, and there is some evidence online that their lives are quasi-destroyed, and there is still a lot of litigation remaining in those cases.

    Of course, lawsuits cost money: More Thiel-like billionaires should be recruited.

    I think it was considered bad PR to go after Jackie or the elder. So what? Destroy them. Sue the journalists. Do not sue their employers. There are various defenses they might put forward, and the employer may end up a defendant against your will, but maybe not. If the employer doesn't end up a defendant, the odds of the journalist's attorney's fees being underwritten are slim. We're talking GoFundMe at this point. With enough lawsuits, GoFundMe will run dry. Donors will get bored and go on to the next thing.

    With a track record of destroyed journalist lifes, early on in any news dust-up a victim could simply send a document describing what has happened to writers in the past, plus a preservation of evidence order, and that will act as a specific deterent to that writer.

    Putting her away for fifteen years is an injustice, not because she should have gotten less time, but because she almost certainly has no awareness of these things. If she were properly executed for what she did right away, her fellows would get the sense that maybe beating an elderly man almost to death is not something they should do. As it is she will experience no punishment and know no remorse, and her fellows will learn nothing, in fact they will not even miss her, because they're all already plugged in to prison culture. It's like if a dog attacked a child, so the authorities urgently and expensively move it to a similar household four blocks away, and consider their work done.

    "I am hopeful that it will be overturned on appeal but then I was very surprised that charges were brought in the first place so what do I know"

    According to Patrick Parkinson (who was asked to investigate abuse in some Australian monastic order, only to see the worst offenders whisked off to Asia in order to escape justice), Catholic clergy in Australia have committed six times more abuse than all other religions combined, though a big reason for that is because they took the lead (as Catholics frequently do) in building orphanages and schools and shelters, which attract a lot of pedophiles. That's a horrific statistic, no getting around it. The secular experts didn't help much either -- up until the mid-70's, psychologists assured us that "A sexual episode would cause little harm to a child, provided the police or courts did not ‘make an issue’ of it..." and as late as the early 90's, psychologists were touting techniques for rehabilitating child molesters in favor of incarceration. Catholics get a bad and unfair rap for not listening to scientists, but in this case, not listening to them would have worked out a lot better for all concerned, though that stupidity was compounded by a large helping of clerical evil and depraved indifference of their own devising.

    Pell is now being turned into a scapegoat for that, even though he helped take on the machine that allowed this disaster to happen. Having read about the particulars of his case, I, too, hope the verdict gets overturned, but it's worth noting that the reason he is in this mess to begin with is largely because of all the shenanigans of the Catholic clergy's old-boys-network that people like Parkinson documented.

    HA, Nice comment . I went to a Catholic Boy’s HS run by the Diocese of Buffalo. Six of 26 priests on the faculty are now on the Bishop’s list of “credible” sexual abusers. That is 23 % of the priests on the faculty! Endemic.

    Not unless it is a class action. In private suits, within a certain # of days after the settlement agreement is entered into and the agreed upon actions or payments made (and this is agreed in advance in the settlement agreement), the plaintiff moves to dismiss the case "with prejudice" (meaning that it cannot be refiled). If a private party wants to drop his suit, the judge('s clerk) will rubber stamp the motion as a routine matter - they are glad to have it off their calendar.

    A major problem in living with blacks (or anyone else, but especially blacks) that the multikult has no answer for is that of course you never see perfectly eye to eye, and often there will be divergent alternative histories. I do not know but expect that Till was told about the injustice and unfairness of white rule in general (I assume this was a general atmosphere), regardless of what he was told about his father specifically, and the one explanation would work for the other. It is seen very often with black criminals that they are deeply cynical about the justice system and this is often taken to be a result of their personal situation, but those kids growing up hearing from rap and community organizers that there is no justice.

    Whites finally pushed back ever so gently, causing the media to pull back ever so gently.

    The media's reaction to these hoaxes and hate crimes was never about the truthfulness of them, which is why pointing how stupid they are is just as stupid. It was - and always will be - about power.

    Logic and facts will not stop the anti-(gentile) white crusade in this country. (Sorry Steve.) The other side will stop when it costs them more to hurt whites than they gain.

    You'll notice that the media doesn't mess around with Muslims. Is that because Muslims are such great debaters? Yeah, right. No, it's because Muslims fight back, both legally and on the streets.

    One reason they might not “mess around” with Muslims is Muslims are (1) a tiny % of the population, (2) are loyal members of the anti-White coalition.

    I wonder if there are Hate Hoaxes against Muslims in Israel.

    They have the opposite problem: Muslims deploy stereotypical anti-Semitic language so often, there is no way to punish them for it. Plus they want to prioritize actual violent threats.
    The fact that this is an issue here is an illustration of how soft they have it and how soft we are.

    Unless very public people and organisations take a big hit financially and to their reputation over this, they will just do the same thing next time. Their hatred is almost instinctive; they need what remains of their rational brains to quietly say "hang on, remember what happened last time".

    It may be instructive to remember the Rolling Stone and Jackie Coakley story. Jan Wenner got a slap on the wrist and an invitation to the White House for coffee with President Obama, a grand total of zero writers and editors were demoted, much less fired, and Jackie herself is happily married and having babies.

  122. This sensitivity-training course needs to be required for government employees in the many agencies staffed with 80–90% minority employees, making minorities more Woke to the role that racial bias plays in awarding civil servant status as opposed to running the racially disfavored new hires out of the building. Many corporate call centers and back offices have a similar workforce composition. They also need to add the course.

    Childbearing-aged moms of all skin-pigmentation hues in the many government and private-sector offices with 80–90% mom employees need to be Woke to their womb-productivity bigotry, which is a form of agism, sexism and old-fashioned corrupt cronyism, particularly when it is used to create a protection racket wherein moms can miss a tremendous amount of work beyond PTO & pregnancy leave while retaining their jobs, even when they fail to meet the quotas.

    I respond:

    Muslims responding with violence or threats of violence is one reason the Media/Left doesn’t dare criticize Muslims. The bigger reason is that in domestic politics in the West (Europe, UK, USA, Australia, Canada) Muslims are on the domestic Liberal Left team, sometimes there are arguments with dominant Liberal Left Jews about Israel/Palestine but that’s the only issue there are divisions. Muslims and Jews both vote > 80% Lib Left Democrat or in the UK Lib Left Labour. Everything is about “empowering” non White Christian peoples.

    Jack, you're either missing or ignoring my point.

    My point is that having this geographic entity "the nation state" to go along with a people\nation is overall a great thing, but one--big--negative is that we then have to put up with people who are nominal citizens but actually do not want to the norms, values, rules of the nation... simply because we don't have a place to dump them.

    Expanding the thought ...

    It would be great if all the nations of the world could just have a common dumping ground where they could expel the a*holes to. Someplace like New Guinea would be great--though i'm sure the folks there might not like the idea much.

    Being expelled would be like being put on waivers. You could make your case to other nations and if they wanted you--i.e. your offense was behavior incompatible with the norms of nation A, but nation B though you were just peach--they could pick you up.

    So for example Zachary Greenberg--maybe (after we split the US) Rainbowtopia, the Jewish SJW\coalition-of-the-fringes-land would pick him up after civilized America kicked him out. (Although if the split was done properly, he would have been in SJWhe should have been there in the first place) But for people like Laquisha here, there wouldn't be any pickup. All nations would find her useless. So she'd just have to make her life in the DumpingGround.

    Ok, but you are thinking in “theory”.

    Those of us living in reality understand that there already is one dumping ground country – our country the United States of America.

    This was most obvious during the lat 1970s when Fidel Castro simply cleared out his prisons and his insane asylums and dumped the worst of the worst from Communist Cuba on South Florida. Instead of sinking the boats, deporting every last one of these creatures, Jimmy Carter US government accepted all them and came up with all kinds of “programs” to help them. This along with the humiliations of the Iranian Islamists hold Americans hostage for over a year led to the frustrations that earned Ronald Reagan a 49 state sweep victory.

    But somehow ending extremely bad immigration just never became reality under two terms of Reagan and especially 3 terms of Bush Sr and Bush Jr.

    No.

    After a lawsuit is filed, as in this case, settlements have to be approved by this judge and entered into the record of filings, although the terms themselves are usually confidential.

    Not unless it is a class action. In private suits, within a certain # of days after the settlement agreement is entered into and the agreed upon actions or payments made (and this is agreed in advance in the settlement agreement), the plaintiff moves to dismiss the case “with prejudice” (meaning that it cannot be refiled). If a private party wants to drop his suit, the judge(‘s clerk) will rubber stamp the motion as a routine matter – they are glad to have it off their calendar.

    most whites did not have courage to face the fact that their asses are getting kicked by various organized minorities. Wussified as a race, they dare not to fight back. I can hear Founding fathers weeping in their coffins.

    The Washington Post will likely try to memory hole Covington the way that the media successfully made the UVA fraternity ritual gang rape on broken glass hate hoax sound too boring to remember: Mistakes were made because proper journalistic methodology was not wholly followed;...
     
    As near as I can tell, lying about current events in the most tendentious way possible IS proper journalistic methodology.

    It would be interesting to know how much of this mindset has filtered into journalism education. Or is peer pressure enough for people to pick it up by osmosis?

    “more complicated than it first seemed”
     
    It is not journalism to report on what 'seemed'. It is also not journalism to only retroactively see that things are 'more complicated'. An average 15-year old with not much sophistication thinks that way - do they now now run Wash Post and the other media?

    The drumming Indian moron is the least of America's problems. The elites who no longer understand critical thinking are. This will be a long way down.

    Putting her away for fifteen years is an injustice, not because she should have gotten less time, but because she almost certainly has no awareness of these things. If she were properly executed for what she did right away, her fellows would get the sense that maybe beating an elderly man almost to death is not something they should do. As it is she will experience no punishment and know no remorse, and her fellows will learn nothing, in fact they will not even miss her, because they're all already plugged in to prison culture. It's like if a dog attacked a child, so the authorities urgently and expensively move it to a similar household four blocks away, and consider their work done.

    She had forgotten to recite the Litany.

    “Not to go on all-fours; that is the Law. Are we not Men? “Not to suck up Drink; that is the Law. Are we not Men? “Not to eat Fish or Flesh; that is the Law. Are we not Men? “Not to claw the Bark of Trees; that is the Law. Are we not Men? “Not to chase other Men; that is the Law. Are we not Men?”

    If we are talking about anti Catholicism in a dominant SJW culture check out the George Pell case in Australia . I don't know if this has had any major coverage in the US but in significance it may be a modern Dreyfus case
    ( I am well aware that stories without an American angle are at best footnotes in US media )

    I am hopeful that it will be overturned on appeal but then I was very surprised that charges were brought in the first place so what do I know

    I think it was partly an inside revenge, though of course I have no proof.

    He has a strong temper, and was put in charge of cleaning the Vaticans’ finances, and was trying to do that, even bringing in outside consultants. He uncovered around 1 bill of “lost” money (not purposely lost, that is). No romanitá, few friends back home and then he was hit with the lawsuit. And he was certainly left to flounder on his own by the current Pope.

  134. I have a suggestion of my own. Whites should boycott the Washington Post.

  135. @The Germ Theory of Disease
    Not that it has any bearing on the case, but it would be interesting on several levels to learn whether or not Emmett Till knew anything about who his father was, what he had done, and what had become of him. After all, the kid was only 14, and his father was executed overseas, his knowledge of Till, Sr. may have been scant.

    Was he in the dark about his father? Had he been lied to, or misinformed? Was it perhaps just not spoken of? Conversely, if he did know, was he ashamed? In denial? Resentful? Vengeance-seeking?

    Doesn't influence the case at all, but could shed some light on behavior-psych periphery.

    There is much more to the “Emmett Till” story that is not widely known. Of course, killing him was wrong, (and made him into a “martyr” of the black “civil-rights” movement). but–it is not generally known that Emmett Till was a strapping young man of about 160 lbs.–NOT a “little boy” as some media types tried to portray him as. He was a known womanizer and attempted to take his cocky “Chicago ways” in dealing with women to the Deep South. He was sent to live with relatives in the South because his Chicago relatives could not handle him. He had a “cocky attitude” and bragged about “getting it on” with white women–not a good idea in the South. . . According to published accounts, Mr. Till did not just “whistle” at a white woman, but grabbed, manhandled and fondled a married white woman. In Southern culture, this was, and still is, the ultimate form of disrespect. Despite Mr. Till’s relatives’ attempts to spirit him “out of town” to avoid retribution by the woman’s relatives and townspeople, his cocky attitude “got in the way”, similar to the way that “young master Trayvon’s” attitude got him killed. Despite being given numerous “chances” to apologize for his behavior, he was defiant to the end. IF he had apologized for his behavior, he would still be alive today. In fact, one of his killers was a black man.
    It is interesting to note that Emmett Till’s father was executed by the U S military for multiple rapes. Maybe “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” . . .
    As a postscript, the woman who accused Emmett Till of fondling her professed on her deathbed that the incident did not take place as originally described. This may have been remorse for Till’s killing, but does not negate the fact that Till was a “white womanizer” at a particularly difficult time for blacks.

  136. “all Washington Post employees should be required to take an eight hour diversity sensitivity training course ”

    We are well past that stage. Politics by other means now…
