    I guess Africa is far afield in cloning and such technology for people there to be worried about such things.

    Afro-Superstition meets Science Fiction. Wakandology.

    The most simple minds pondering the most advanced technology, leading to syncretism of primitivism and modernity.

    Cloning a dead person and then accelerating the clone to adulthood in a matter of hours is something that the Nigerians do really well. They learned this from the Wakandans.

    …after it was rescued from decaying pyramids by early helicopters.

  5. “‘It’s real me’: Nigerian president denies dying and being replaced by clone.”

    Clones always say that:

  6. He’s just saying he’s the real one because he wants someone to help him collect his hundred-million dollar inheritance by wire transfer. I got an email from him last week.

    (Is anybody else here still getting those? Seriously, I received two recently.)

  7. Now that’s diverse!

    Mass Immigration Creates Problems For the Left. Tighter Borders Can’t Be the Solution.

    MMMM, let’s see, the author’s name is Levitz….I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that the reason why has something to do with Nazis and the Holocaust….

    Thus, in Cowie’s telling, the 1924 Immigration Act was one of several aberrant developments that allowed for “the great exception” that was the New Deal era: the sole period in American history when “the central government used its considerable resources in a systematic, if hardly consistent, fashion on behalf of the economic interest of non-elite Americans,” and, thereby, built the most prosperous middle class the world had ever known.

    Hey, that sounds pretty great…..What could anyone have against results like that……Wait, for it, wait for it…..

    It was also one of the aberrant developments that allowed the Nazis to murder my grandmother’s entire family.

  10. We clearly need to find the world’s most diverse person and then clone him endlessly, thus ensuring maximum diversity.

    Sort of like how the Empire cloned it’s stormtroopers. Unfortunately they seem to have cloned the one guy with such bad eye sight that he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn at 10 yards.

    A bit non-sequitur-ish even for Levitz, who pretty much plies his trade by stretching and interpreting things to fit the Narrative.

    Pretty funny how he brings up climate change just to use it as a support for mass immigration. LOL.

    I wonder if he notices Muslim immigration to Europe driving out Jews. Probably not.

    That part of his tweet caught my attention. WTF? Nigerians in Poland are actually present enough in Poland in numbers to garner a meeting with the Nigerian president? I thought Poland had insulated itself from the immivasion.

    At least when the Europeans went around and colonized places in the New World they were actually at a comparably high level of advancement re other peoples. Nigerians are ending up all over the world, and will be for the foreseeable future, all while Nigeria is a giant shithole whose only product besides oil is a surplus of human beings.

  16. Nothing says “the end of the world” quite so pithily as “Nigerians in Poland.”

    Except, of course, “Nigerians in Polish girls.” But we all know that’s the Plan.

    The Nigerian President was in Poland for a UN sponsored conference on climate change in Katowice, and also met with Nigerians living in Poland. He had an entourage of several officials.

    As for Nigerians living in Poland here’s some advice from an online thread by a Nigerian student looking to move to Poland.

    https://www.nairaland.com/1818187/advice-studying-poland

    Yea I agree, e be like say the girls there get one kind special ifunanya for Dark guys, na the best place to flex for EU be that in my opinion grin why You come go America na? after all the beautiful Ania’s, Agnieszka’s, Olla and Weronika’s? you dull mahn. But to get Pali for Poland na only through Marriage na, because almost no professional jobs there wey fit give foreigners permit especially if you no speak Polish.

    Before going there, there was this sterotype about Poland been very racist with redneck since it was a former sovit states, but my experience there was otherwise. I felt like a local in warsaw since I learnt the basics of the language, and was very well accepted there, at least I felt. Do you know the city councellor in the city of Lodz was an Igbo man? his name is John Godson.

    Ifunanya apparently means “something that catches the eye” or “love at first sight.” Where’s NigerianNationalist when we need him?

    As any Harvard undergraduate admissions officer will tell you (if injected with truth serum), if you’re going to have African immigrants, you might as well have middle class Igbo or Yoruba from Nigeria or Ghanaians.

    Which there would be an argument for, if the criteria by which women determine fitness weren’t so profoundly anti-civilizational. What we have is a dynamic that is at once grossly iniquitous and cruel, and utterly corrosive and retrograde. The worst of both worlds.

    If the pop of Nigeria is really going to get up to around 750 mil, I wonder how many Nigerian expats there would be at that point. Probably quite a lot. And would Nigeria by then have invaded its neighbors? I’m guessing so.

    Ah-ha! Since his grandmother’s entire family were murdered some seventy years ago, we know the writer to be a clone!

    Your post was not off-topic at all.

  33. @Redneck farmer

    You know what need more emphasis? The failure of them Hebrews. Cowards, pansies, losers. The Germans decided to have a go at them and they cried, fled, whined, and died. Everyone is perhaps rightly horrified by anything that went on in a so-called concentration camp if it’s all true; that kind of thing Ian inexcusable and inhumane. But this proper revulsion is not and ought not be mutually exclusive of a concomitant disgust with the cowardly inefffectiveness of the Hebrews in doing anything at all to defend themselves or (and here’s an idea!) getting (or keeping) their own damned land to avoid such problems in the first place.

    Compare the Comanches’ actions whilst the U.S.A. we’re having a go at them, or the Irish reaction to the British, and, earlier, the Scots to the English. Remember the Finns’ handling of Russian aggression? Not only were these other peoples not a bunch of pushovers and cowards, they were defending their lands against invaders. The Hebrews in Germany were a bunch of invaders themselves who should Ben happy they were tolerated so long as they were.

    The Hebrews are this anomalous people with no mettle but with endless guile who carry on interminably solely via the latter. Even today their vaunted military exists only because of the U.S.A.. The funding is foreign, the expertise and training foreign, the technology and materiel designed and produced by foreigners. On top of all that they don’t even use the military to fight their own (meaningful) wars: that’s, again, the American military’s lot.

    As recently as five years ago I had no ill-feeling at all about Hebrews, but they demand it. As a people and individually they really do just run around pissing on everyone else’s boots, telling those people it Ian raining, and then feigning outrage when any of those people decks them. It’s not to be believed, but there it is. Every day another egregious example presents itself.

    jews have a real talent for inevitably finding themselves hoist on their own petard. Turning the UK into an anti-israel one party state seems to be stage one in that process. Once the same thing happens in the US its going to be tough for israel to keep the vibrance at bay.

    Levitz’s mother and father were also killed. What was particularly cruel was that they were still mere infants when the atrocity was carried out.

    yes there are a few thousand Africans in Poland, I cannot recall exactly how many Nigerians though. The numbers are fairly small, Several thousand mostly students. If you speak Polish check out Migracje.gov.pl for numbers, The vast majority of foreigners are other Europeans

    Holocaust survivors were looked down on when they arrived in Israel. Some still look down on them:

    “Holocaust survivors are like cats. In Israel not ­everybody appreciates them,” he says. “They say you went to the slaughter like sheep, without fighting for your lives.”
    It seems “Holocaust fatigue” also stops some young Israelis engaging in the plight of survivors.

    I was thinking the really smaller ones, like Benin (and then Togo and Ghana) are a shoe-in, if nobody is playing peacekeeper in Africa at that point. If I were a megalomaniac leader of 750 million Nigerians, I would probably go the coastal route, by preference, taking also Cameroon. The rest will probably depend on their successes, and where the other major population centers in Africa are at that point.

  50. I find it difficult to believe this BuhariJubril clone issue because while every human being has a look-alike,
    how do you explain the fact that the voice is still the same?
