Obama Reveals His Political Grand Strategy: The Hodgepodgization of America

Here’s part of an interview with the President in Vox that is pretty much along the lines of one of my “Core v. Fringe” election strategy articles, just discussed from the opposite partisan point of view. Obama tells Ezra Klein that he’s not worried about a backlash against Democrats over attacks on whites such as Trayvon and Ferguson because he’s using immigration to frontlash America into more and more of a “a hodgepodge of folks,” and thus opponents will “have much less ability, I think, to express” dissenting views.

Ezra Klein: One of the powerful things that’s happened as polarization has increased politically is it’s begun structuring people’s other identities. The one I’m particularly interested in here is race. If you look back at polling around the OJ Simpson verdict or the Bernhard Goetz shooting in New York, Republicans and Democrats — you basically couldn’t tell them apart. Now you look at the Zimmerman verdict or you look at what’s going on in Ferguson, and opinion on racial issues is very sharply split by party. Do you worry about the merging of racial and partisan identity?

Barack Obama: I don’t worry about that, because I don’t think that’s going to last. I worry very much about the immediate consequences of mistrust between police and minority communities. I think there are things we can do to train our police force and make sure that everybody is being treated fairly. And the task force that I assigned after the Ferguson and New York cases is intended to produce very specific tools for us to deal with it.

But over the long term, I’m pretty optimistic, and the reason is because this country just becomes more and more of a hodgepodge of folks. Again, this is an example where things seem very polarized at the national level and media spotlight, but you go into communities — you know, one of the great things about being president is you travel through the entire country, and you go to Tennessee and it turns out that you’ve got this huge Kurdish community. And you go to some little town in Iowa and you see some Hasidic Jewish community,

I think Obama is trolling here. Ezra later picks up on Obama’s reference to one of the most flagrant hubs of illegal immigration.

and then you see a bunch of interracial black and white couples running around with their kids. And this is in these little farm communities, and you’ve got Latinos in the classroom when you visit the schools there. So people are getting more and more comfortable with the diversity of this country, much more sophisticated about both the cultural differences but more importantly, the basic commonality that we have. And, you know, the key is to make sure that our politics and our politicians are tapping into that better set of impulses rather than our baser fears.

Ezra Klein’s post-interview interjection: Specifically you see this in Postville, Iowa, where a Lubavitcher family’s purchase of a meat-processing plant in the late 1980s has led to the migration of a small community of Hasidim to the area.

Obvious iSteve Bait from Ezra. Postville has been a notorious example of fringe aggression against core Americans since the publication on 9/10/2001 (poor timing, I’ll grant) of Stephen G. Bloom’s book Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America. A Jewish college professor went to Postville to write a book about how bigoted small town Iowa people were to ultra-Orthodox Jews just because they were diverse, but wound up writing about how excessively nice Iowans were to the relentlessly un-neighborly and even criminal newcomers.

Then, of course, there’s the Wikipedia article on the Postville Raid:

The Postville Raid was a raid at the Agriprocessors Inc. kosher slaughterhouse and meat packing plant in Postville, Iowa, USA, on May 12, 2008, executed by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security together with other agencies. The raid was the largest single raid of a workplace in U.S. history until that date, and resulted in nearly 400 arrests of immigrant workers with false identity papers who were charged with identity theft, document fraud, use of stolen social security numbers, and related offenses. Some 300 workers were convicted on document fraud charges within four days. The majority served a five-month prison sentence before being deported.

Several employees and lower and middle level managers were indicted on charges of conspiracy to harbor illegal immigrants, aggravated identity theft, and child labor violations among others and were convicted, serving prison sentences between 60 days and 41 months. Neither the owner, Aaron Rubashkin, nor his sons Sholom and Heshy Rubashkin, who were in charge of the management of Agriprocessors, were convicted of immigration and labor law violations. Financial irregularities brought to light by the raid and subsequent investigations led to a conviction of the plant’s chief executive Sholom Rubashkin on bank fraud and related charges. He was sentenced to 27 years in prison, and his trial on immigration charges was canceled.

So, Postville symbolizes both immigration fraud and bank fraud.

The INS was going to raid Postville back in 2000, when it was still a small time illegal immigration hub, but the raid got scrubbed due to the election. Agents heard that the owners were friends with Senator Joe Lieberman and feared political blowback. So they let Postville metastasize for eight years.

Back to Obama:

Obama: And my gut tells me, and I’ve seen it in my own career and you see it generally, a politician who plays on those fears in America, I don’t think is going to over time get a lot of traction. Even, you know, it’s not a perfect analogy, but if you think about how rapidly the whole issue of the LGBT community and discrimination against gays and lesbians has shifted. The Republican party, even the most conservative, they have much less ability, I think, to express discriminatory views than they did even 10 years ago. And that’s a source of optimism. It makes me hopeful.

Obama is optimistic because freedom of expression is much more limited than even ten years ago.

  1. Sometimes, not always, but sometimes, in rare moments of despair, I wonder whether there is any longer space for an old-style assimilationist that I am. I feel caught between the dominant and suffocating paradigm of “hodge-podge” multiculturalists who are constructing a world without a center on the one hand and on the other the increasingly embittered minority, but possibly growing number, of white nationalists who advocate a purist white ethno-state.

    I know that does not capture the reality in its totality. I can see that from interacting with my family-by-marriage, my friends, my neighbors, and other community members. But on the ether of the internet and the blogosphere, there seems to this binary, Manichean construct of either hodge-podgism or racial fundamentalism.

    So I find Mr. Sailer’s “citizenism” refreshing in a “retro” sort of way, founded upon an HBD/race realist foundation but also gentlemanly and hopeful at the same time. May it be the future again.

  2. “and then you see a bunch of interracial black and white couples running around with their kids. And this is in these little farm communities, and you’ve got Latinos in the classroom when you visit the schools there.”

    This is true. I see it all over even in affluent white communities. White women surrender their wombs to blacks, and white boys have accepted their wimp status.

    Look at grammy’s.

    Kanye struts around as he pleases and white guys just pee in their pants.

    White guys are gutless and spineless. And white women worship the Negro. It’s game over. Really.

    All we can do now is record and comment on the downfall.

  4. Hodgepodgization sounds like an esoteric form of Balkanization.

    It’s also the opposite of homogenization. I wonder what hodgepodgidized milk would taste like — and if it would be kosher enough to drink in Postville.

  5. This is why I say even if you’re indifferent towards gay marriage, if you’re a conservative you should act against it. It will be used in the years to come to justify a whole range of issues the Left throws out. Gay marriage to the Left is more than just allowing gays to marry but it’s about destabilizing the state.

    That makes one of you. I think he’s a puerile, resentful jerk who believes this stuff. The fact he sat in, and tithed to, Rev Wright’s ‘church’ all those years lends credence to that view. As do the numerous instances of his racially demagogic rhetoric — most notably re Trayvon Martin and Ferguson of course. Not to mention his DOJ appointments. Also not to mention sending White House representation to Michael Brown’s funeral (after the release of the convenience store video) — or maybe you don’t believe Obama was fully approving of that?

  10. Before I heard of Steve or citizenism, I was already thinking along the thought process. More of a patriotic: America, yeehaw, love it or leave it mentality. If immigrants can find the gumption to leave their own for a new one, then they should also be able to adopt their new homes cultural ways. First generation immigrants see it that way because they want to make a better life for their children (or so we are told by Authorities on the subject).

    America doesn’t work that way. Not on the ground level of 2nd-3rd generation immigrants hitting their IQ levels and flat-lining against the other ethnic groups, or the clannish us-against-the-world types, or the lost-identity types who merge into the vacuum of multicultural excess encouraged by college campuses across the nation. Besides, it’s cool to “just be yourself” which is code for be Black and Proud, or Mexican and Proud, or… yadda, yadda, yadda. Why conform? Every opportunity and hand up is given to you just because you aren’t white. Who wouldn’t take that deal? (besides most blacks)

    Now asking those people above to agree with Steve’s citizenism, the idea that we can all be in on an immigration restriction platform together because we are already here, is a reach. Especially when the main point of coming to the US is to get settled… and then bring in the rest of the family on technicalities and “reuniting” the family tropes. They’re in, and they want to bring Mom, Dad, Sis, Bro, Auntie, Uncle, Gramma, 2nd cousin once removed, and….

    My ideal state would be a 90% majority white country, with a healthy paternal tolerance towards the 10% minority. That is about as stable as a nation can get without being 100% homogeneous.

    But since we slipping down from 90… to 80… to the 77% white we are at now… then it will be 60… then 50%. Obama can expect that folks are just becoming more tolerant, but he admitted that people aren’t able to express those views as openly as they were just 10 years ago. So is the tolerance going up or is the megaphone against dissent getting louder? And if you look at the political opinions of most whites are most “conservative” they are usually located to heavy minority areas. One expects that as whites become a smaller share of the population and their daily encounters with minorities increases from 1 in 4 to 1 in 2, then what? Does the megaphone go full blast if they start to speak out against the Latin Americanization of their country (which from the standpoint of a White Westerner, is a step down, not a step up, the ladder of politics)?

    Citizenism might have worked if the immigrant population was stabilized in 1990. Now? Not a chance. Immigration and birth rates have already inexorably altered the demographic trajectory towards a white plurality, decline. White Nationalism seems like the only viable option left on the table, that is if you’re not willing to SNL skit-it-up and “hand it on over to Mexicans”.

  12. Do you really want to assimilate Somalis or Colombians?

    As a whole, I think they would be a lot harder to assimilate than people from other cultures with a greater affinity to the traditional Christian American culture. But, I would think that a few among them might work out well enough. Surely you can design an objective filtering mechanism in the immigration system to select for such few folks among them.

    I don’t think it would be hard to design and implement a set of objective criteria that, via the natural selection of race realism, would filter out the kind of people who would not assimilate well or easily. And, of course, assimilation requires a limit on the numbers admitted during a given time frame, qualified or not.

    Heck, even enforcing the current laws on the books strenuously would do a world of good: http://cis.org/node/5882

    I think there is a rather large space between that and a purist white ethno-state, which has never existed in history.

  13. Just like the vapid commentator who was certain that CO2 does not cause global warming, with the chorus of amens that a cold week in NY disproves climate trends, we have people concluding that any proportion of whites less than x% guarantees the ruin of us all. All these beliefs share a fundamental ignorance of dynamics.

    The POTUS is setting the stage for purges, but he forgets that the tribe of northern Europeans possess the most complete skills sets for organization, adaptation, and fulfillment. All they require is a cause. All things being equal, the tribe with plurality wins, but all things are not equal.

    What we need is full unemployment.

    “The aspiration to go backwards or forwards to a life without work is evident in every serious social or cultural history of pre-industrial Europe, among them M. Dorothy George’s *England* In* *Transition* and Peter Burke’s *Popular* *Culture* *in* *Early* *Modern* *Europe*. Also pertinent is Daniel Bell’s essay, “Work and its Discontents,” the first text, I believe, to refer to the “revolt against work” in so many words and, had it been understood, an important correction to the complacency ordinarily associated with the volume in which it was collected, *The* *End* *of* *Ideology*. Neither critics nor celebrants have noticed that Bell’s end-of-ideology thesis signaled not the end of social unrest but the beginning of a new, uncharted phase unconstrained and uninformed by ideology. It was Seymour Lipset (in *Political* *Man*), not Bell, who announced at the same time that “the fundamental problems of the Industrial Revolution have been solved,” only a few years before the post- or meta-industrial discontents of college students drove Lipset from UC Berkeley to the relative (and temporary) tranquility of Harvard.” Abolition of Work

  16. “State control of the economy is no solution. Work is, if anything, more dangerous in the state-socialist countries than it is here. Thousands of Russian workers were killed or injured building the Moscow subway. Stories reverberate about covered-up Soviet nuclear disasters which make Times Beach and Three-Mile Island look like elementary-school air-raid drills. On the other hand, deregulation, currently fashionable, won’t help and will probably hurt. From a health and safety standpoint, among others, work was at its worst in the days when the economy most closely approximated laissez-faire.” http://www.primitivism.com/abolition.htm

  19. There were plenty of pure white countries in Europe before World War 2 or so, simply because racial/cultural contact hadn’t even occurred.

    Of course, they were worried about other kinds of ‘diversity’…

    I actually agree we could probably assimilate people if we tried harder–we did it 100 years ago. But nobody’s interested anymore.

    I doubt the white nationalist thing is going to gain much traction outside of the Internet, personally. The public face is still the toothless Klansman in the trailer park. (Yes, my odious relatives in the media have a lot to do with that, but it is the reality now.) Not going to encourage a lot of high-end whites–they prefer to just use money to wall themselves off from undesirables.

    As for the middle and working classes, they don’t have the wherewithal/money to move, and so our new rough beast of a country slouches toward Brazil to be born. Income inequality hurts normal people much more than it annoys leftoids–when the rich have all the money, they can buy politicians and get what they want.

  21. Obama just spiked the football in the face of the American core. He was elected twice, he won, and we are all on the long slow train to Postville.

    Chuck Todd said something truthful on Meet the Press this past Sunday. The question was “why did Obama mention the sins of the Crusades, slavery and Jim Crow at a prayer breakfast.”

    Todd’s reply was that Obama is resentful at being obligated to attend a prayer breakfast in the first place, so he attacked Christians white Americans by equating them with modern-day Islamism.

  23. On the one hand it’s remarkable that a head of state would say such things and on the other hand it makes perfect sense. It makes sense for President Obama to say such things because these are some of the core projects of our progressive establishment. Obama himself is a fulfilment of these projects. What we’re seeing here is both remarkable and entirely predictable. What Obama says is what liberal-progressives in well-financed and well-connected institutions were discussing 60 years ago and what they’ve been beavering away at ever since: “if you will it, it is no dream”.

    Looking at it from the perspective of a liberal-progressive in, say, 1960, having President Barack Hussein Obama II make such assertions in an interview published electronically in the year 2015 would make perfect sense and be right and good. It’d be no more disturbing to that member of the Ford Foundation’s “brightest and best” to learn of such things in the year 1960 than it would be for the ground crew at Heathrow to learn the British Airways flight they prepped had arrived safely and on time at O’Hare.

    Only Russia and Islam are failing to fall into line and get “on the right side of history”. I don’t think our governing class of degenerated technocrats quite get what a hornet’s nest they’ve kicked over in Russia…

  24. as I have been saying for years, the elite strategy is to create divisions/factions within each voting district. By maximizing factions within each voting district, the common interest decreases, the public will becomes diffused and weakened. What is a voting district? The USA votes for the president; a state votes for governor, senator, a congressional district votes for a congressman, a county votes for commissioners, cities for mayors, etc.

    As heterogeneity increases (or as obama puts it, each district becomes more of a hodgepodge), factions increase, and the shared common interest decreases, and the majority is less able to impose its will on the government.

    This is the Divide Et Impera strategy. It was the basis of the creation of the USA from the several states. Increase district size, and factions increase. The mega-corporations did the same thing with the EU, creating it from several nations and thus increasing district size.

    One question here is whether obama was able to discern this idea himself or was taught it in Harvard (it is my understanding that the ivy league/elite colleges do overtly teach the divide et impera history/tactic), or whether he has been advised of this mechanism while president. The president is of course advised by many think tanks etc, who have PhDs etc who are very much aware of this crucial divide et impera strategy.

    As obama implies above, racial integration combined with mass immigration makes the USA more heterogeneous (more of a hodgepodge), and, as obama implies, the white majority will be less able to impose its will on the USA.

  25. I think it suits Obama’s chaotic, rootless background- from the mother who kept him in an ethereal, anthropology experiment zone, the fathers who weren’t fathers, the constant movement, the identity and name shifts, the tranny babysitter, down to the ersatz “blackness” that finally grounded him in something.

    This is actually the “white” side of Obama, if there’s any sincerity to it. Only lib whites find such raw juxtapositions charming. Only people like that find a bunch of cell phone stores, tabacco outlets, and ethnic markets along a dreary stretch of Hickory Parkway in Nashville soul stirring. If such places were still being populated by downscale whites and blacks, they (and a lot of alt righters, as Anti Gnostic notices) would find it trashy.

    So now Obama trolls whites with a newer more updated version

    2-4-6-8 We gonna let them immigrate
    8-6-4-2 Soon there’ll be more of us than you

    Taki had an article about Mexican-Black turf wars.

    Once I had gone to this sort of hip hop club in Denver of all places. It was over near the old rail yards that were slowly being gentrified into the SWPL heaven it is today. But back then it was on the border of Mexican and Black regions of Denver. So the club had a mix of the two minorities.

    And it had a small army of security. The front door had 5 to 6 big bouncers working it. There were 5 big guys standing on the small stage where the DJ was set up watching the dance floor like hawks. And they weren’t lackadaisical about it. It was as if they were lifeguards staring at a pool of three year olds. They expected something to break out at any minute.

    The black guy I was with pointed it out, he said it was always the case where ever Blacks and Mexicans had to co-habit the same space. They will fight in a minute and each different group had no qualms about jumping in to support one of their own regardless of fault.

    So I wish Obama and all Blacks good luck when the majority is not a bunch of descendants of Manorial outbreeding altruistic whites but rather a bunch of clannish competitors who the thought police overlooked in enforcing the wonderful benefits of diversity and actually have thoughts like
    “Diversity + Proximity=War”.

  30. But since we slipping down from 90… to 80… to the 77% white we are at now…

    That 77% figure is bogus propaganda; it includes more than 80% of the country’s Hispanics, of whom maybe 5% are White.

    The real percentage of Whites in this country is in the low 60′s (63% according to the Census Bureau in 2013) and lower still after you subtract out MENAs.

    Why bother? For every single one of the few that might work out well enough if you went to the extreme trouble to “design an objective filtering mechanism to select out those few folks,” there is a smart White young lad withering in the hinterlands.

    Far better to spend those bucks and that political effort upgrading, say, University of North Dakota, so that the smart White American Homer-Hickam-Rocket-Boys types can give us back the space-faring America we used to have.

  34. I’m amazed at how ahistorical the dweebs at Vox are. There was a huge racial divide over the O.J. verdict, and since the vast majority of blacks are Democrats that must have created a significant partisan split. Just because you were 10 years old when something happened doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. The other day they ran some shocking news: a six-year-old film critics’ poll that named Citizen Kane the best movie of all time. I’m not kidding.

  39. In 2001 the great science fiction writer Thomas Disch wrote a hilarious story called “After Postville”:

    “This town was dying, you know, when we came here,” the rebbe went on. “It was
    moribund, almost bankrupt. Only the taxes we paid kept it alive. Our taxes
    kept the schools open, though our children don’t attend them.”

    “And how did you vote on the bond issues?”

    “Oh, we were against more money for your football teams and uniforms and the
    computers and hockey rink. You wrang all that out of us. Then, once the
    Mexicans were here in force–Vloosh! the school budget soared into outer space
    like a rocketship. There was no stopping the progress of Education then.”

    “And who brought the Mexicans to Postville? Whose slaughterhouse gave them
    jobs? Who built their trailer camps?”

    The rebbe shrugged. “Who else? But who else, my little Eagle Scout, would do
    the work? The jobs were there, but no one who grew up in Postville was hungry
    enough to stoop so low. Eight dollars an hour wouldn’t do for a white man. But

  40. Bloom on Postville:

    So, in the early 1990s, when the Rubashkin family ran out of locals to work on the kill floor, Agriprocessors opted to hire Eastern European workers who had come to America in the aftermath of the breakup of the Soviet Union. When the Eastern European workers moved on — you work in a slaughterhouse only as long as you have to — who else was going to work for such low wages in such dangerous jobs?
    Poor, uneducated Latinos. First Mexicans, then Guatemalans, then Hondurans, then practically anyone who’d show up, including Somalis and Palauans. No experience was necessary for a job that could cost you an arm and a leg — literally.
    So, starting in the early and mid-1990s, the work force in Postville changed dramatically. Thousands of immigrants made their way to Postville. These workers, most of them undocumented, made the slaughterhouse hum. Without them, the kosher slaughterhouse probably would have closed years ago.
    When I first started reporting on the Postville story, local kids often didn’t lock their bikes when they went into the general store to purchase an Icee. Drivers frequently didn’t use their turn signals, because everyone seemed to know where everyone else was headed. And getting stuck in traffic meant crawling behind a John Deere tractor on Main Street.
    But the once flourishing, profit-driven slaughterhouse brought with it myriad problems, which ultimately turned Postville — and the quaint old notions about rural America — on its head. Life in Postville has been transformed since the kosher slaughterhouse opened in 1987, closed in the wake of the immigration raids and reopened recently, under new ownership.
    These days, drugs are more readily available. Crime has risen. Dilapidated trailers and broken-down developments house immigrants who have no place to go. Many longtime locals who could move away have already done so.
    Time was, among the only connections those in insular Postville had with the rest of the world were corn and hog prices, Hawkeye football and the three railroad trains that rolled through town daily.
    That’s all changed. The slaughterhouse that Rubashkin built has all but ruined Postville.

    Wow. Well thank God the locals had the Rubashkins to save them. Just think, without the Rubashkins the place would’ve turned into a virtual ghost town and the locals would’ve had to move away to some Third World hellhole, like Omaha. But praise be to the Rubsashkins – they brought the Third World hellhole to Postville.

    Postville is a metaphor for America – a town built from the ground up by Protestant Europeans, then, uh, non-Protestant Europeans move in, decide the locals aren’t cheap enough labor, flood the town with every sort of immigrant under the sun, suck the town dry, then move away, tossing the ruined town over their shoulders like an empty beer can, with wads of cash stuffed in their pockets, the profits of decades worth of financial fraud.

    Back in the day – i.e., the 1800s – if some family like the Rubashkins had tried doing that to a town like Postville, denying locals decent paying jobs and flooding the town with cheap foreign workers, they and their workers would’ve been run of a town on a rail – under the best of circumstances. But modern telecommunications, media, and transportation, plus an overbearing nation-state means that the billionaires in the financial centers of D.C., New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles are very good at protecting their own wealth while ensuring that people in places like Postville can do absolutely nothing to protect theirs.

  49. “Several employees and lower and middle level managers were indicted on charges of conspiracy to harbor illegal immigrants, aggravated identity theft, and child labor violations among others and were convicted, serving prison sentences between 60 days and 41 months. Neither the owner, Aaron Rubashkin, nor his sons Sholom and Heshy Rubashkin, who were in charge of the management of Agriprocessors, were convicted…”

    “So, Postville symbolizes both immigration fraud and bank fraud.”

    It also symbolizes the war by those on top against those beneath them – the lower level people were sent to jail, but those at the top – who had to have known – received no punishment at all, like all those Wall Street CEOs who wrecked the economy and kept their bonuses.

    When those at the top do suffer any sort of consequences – like Sen. Bob Bennett getting thrown out of office – the elite go into hysterics.

    Accountability, like taxes, is for the little people.

  51. “…the vapid commentator who was certain that CO2 does not cause global warming, …”

    Even if you are a climate scientist, I must tell you that I prefer to look at the ice cores from Antarctica, which show that CO2 levels lag behind increasing temperatures, again and again, through aeons of Earth’s history.

    I suggest you not swallow a complex model too easily, not only because you don’t understand it, but also because its very proponents in the specialized scientific field cannot claim to have a grip on the massive complexity of the system. That’s a convoluted way of saying you don’t undertand it, and neither do they.

    I prefer to look at real data. That is a more certain part of science: a thing called observation.

    CO2 lags behind temperature. Fact.

    Current global warming: also Fact. So don’t lump me with those who think it’s not happening.

    Correlation does not mean causation. Man’s present contributions to CO2 are a correlation, not a cause.

  53. Obviously turning the white suburbs inside out via section 8 is part of this hodgepodge plan. Fortunately the Obama-admin moved too slowly on this with not enough implementation so a decent president can cut this off at the pass. Any Republican president taking office in 2017 can do the right thing but will he? Or will be allow the leftist permanent Federal bureaucracy to keep this policy? Will he dare clean up the Department of Justice and other Federal plug-uglies?
    Or will he be afraid of the uproar the media will amplify (the megaphone)

    The refugee resettlement policies are geared towards disrupting our “white homelands” in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maine, other states, cities, towns and sections of states such as Tennesee which has been invaded by Muslims and Muslim refugees.

  55. This is why I say even if you’re indifferent towards gay marriage, if you’re a conservative you should act against it. It will be used in the years to come to justify a whole range of issues the Left throws out. Gay marriage to the Left is more than just allowing gays to marry but it’s about destabilizing the state.

    This, this, this. I would go further and say that no man of the right–socon, libertarian, warhawk, or citizenist–should be indifferent towards SSM. It’s the greatest statist power grab in history: a few black-robed figures with the help of a couple of black-skinned lawyers (Obama and Holder) basically overthrew the millennial order that was established in Roman law, canon law, the civil law, and the common law and worked out over 20 centuries. While I am a religious man, I have never argued that SSM is a religious issue. It is rather a legal revolution practically unparallelled.

    There was a profound comment here at iSteve a couple of months ago in which the commenter (I wish I could credit him) said something like: Two decades ago there were probably no more than 5,000 people (lawyers, academics, journalists–apart from homosexuals) who actively supported SSM. In the blink of eye, they upended centuries-old principles of family law. The commenter went on to note that there is now obviously no principle that is immune to this kind of elite manipulation. If perpetual revolution and “destabilizing the state” is your goal, there is your model. For advocates of ordered liberty, there is your enemy.

  66. Yes. Most of the prairie states have state universities so there’s a strong probability that within those particular states that such untapped talent does indeed still exist.

    Hodgepodgism would never work in Japan, where ca. 96-99% of the nation remains ethnically Japanese.

    Still can’t see Somalis, Ethiopes, Mexicans and Kurds having a yen to move to Tokyo. Not seeing it. And Japan doesn’t appear to want to welcome a melting pot of hodgepodge and what not into their historically mono-ethnic island nation.

    And especially not now in light of the two Japanese hostages that were brutally killed by militant Islam.

    Fairly simple solution to the hodgepodge problem.

  68. I think there are things we can do to train our police force

    Interesting quote coming from Obama. Surely a man in his position must realize we do not have a police force. In fact the USA has the complete opposite of a police force. We have a multitude of police forces and jurisdictions the likes of which probably no other nation knows. We have the largest DECENTRALIZED collection of police forces in the world. Of course maybe this was some sort of slip. I believe many on the left probably would like for the US to indeed have A police force.

    On a side note, when I was in college a guy from the UK was in my dorm. He was befuddled by all the police forces he came across, from the campus police to the city cops to the county sheriff to the state troopers. All of them had different uniforms and car liveries. I remember explaining to him about their jurisdictional boundaries. He seemed confused. It also blew his mind that if one committed murder in the state we were located in, you’d get life in prison. But if you committed that murder forty miles to the east in the next state, you’d get a lethal injection.

  73. TNC, the greatest Black mind in America goes after Douthat. Ever mindful of his audience, TNC goes straight for the Jew-card:

    The first Crusade was anointed with a pogrom against the Jews of the Rhineland. The Spanish Inquisition included the executions of thousands, and led to the expulsion of Jewish communities from the country. I do not believe one needs a degree in medieval studies to deplore pogroms and ethnic cleansing, anymore than one needs a degree in Middle Eastern studies to deplore the taking or beheading of hostages.

    Then TNC goes in for the kill. Douthat, it seems, is insensitive to Jewish pain:

    Beneath Ross’s claim of “incredible” complication is a plea for context and nuance on behalf of the murderers of Jews—one he does not make on behalf of ISIS.

    Of course, TNC being TNC, it all comes around to Housing:

    More importantly, Jim Crow and slavery were not merely the sins of Southerners and the religious right, but the sins of America, itself. Enslavement was not merely a boon for the South, but for the country as a whole. (During the Civil War, New York City was a hotbed of secessionist sympathy mostly because of its economic ties to the South.) And there is simply no way to understand segregation in this country without understanding the housing policies of Democratic president Franklin D. Roosevelt and the G.I. Bill signed by Democratic president Harry Truman.

If they could puff white smoke out of a White House chimney to signal their decision while we all cheer, they’d do it in a second. We’re all but there, now.

    Republican representatives sailed into Congress on a massive wave of voter discontent with unlimited illegal immigration. What will come of it? If we actually had democracy in this country, if the will of the people actually mattered, you know as well as I do that the preventative measures to illegal immigration would be going full power. Instead, we have American citizens waiting months to get a driver’s license, because DMVs are so overwhelmed with applications from illegals.

    The Nerd-o-sphere is all afflutter over the news that MARVEL will be making Spider-Man movies again.Needless to say, many pundits see this as a golden opportunity to correct Spider-Man’s most grievous fault, his hideous Whiteness:

    Marvel Comics and writer Brian Michael Bendis acknowledged this criticism by creating Miles Morales, a Black Hispanic teenager who took up the mantle of Spider-Man in its “Ultimate Marvel” titles. Morales has been rapturously received, and that success would be easy to re-create on film, especially since it’s unlikely that these new films will replay Spidey’s origin on screen for a third time. If Spider-Man swings on-screen in some random upcoming Marvel movie, it’ll be hard to avoid the depressing whiff of corporate synergy. It’d help if this iteration could bring with it a genuinely new kind of hero.

  77. Unfortunately, Obama is right.

    Was it Ford or Kissinger who said feminism won’t work cuz there’s too much collaboration with the enemy?

    Same with blacks. Sure, there are white fears of black crime, and all that. But there’s just too much white boy worship of black culture and too much white girl lust for Negro sex. Just look at our music culture, TV shows, and sports in high schools, colleges, and pros.

    [MORE]

    Also, Section 8 has an integrative effect because blacks dispersed across America tend to be less threatening and dangerous. For blacks to go crazy, they need critical mass. But if a high school has a certain number of blacks, blacks will act more normal and get more white girls. And white boys will think it’s cool to be friends with blacks.

    In America, whites dominate the female ideal. Blacks dominate the male ideal. So, the collaboration between white females and black males will seal the fate of the white race. There’s white fear but also too much mutual desire and fascination. Look at middle class white girls twerking, a form of dance where the dancer imagines mounting a Negro stud. White girls grow up to that stuff. And white boys have come down with cuckolditis. In the past, white males used to get angry. Today, they are browbeaten by black mastery in music, sports, and PC MLK-worship.

    Without Jim Crow laws, white males are bound to lose. Borders/boundaries enforce group unity. If there are borders between blacks and whites, white males can insist on being the main partners of white girls who will bond with whites, have white babies, and be proud of their men. But if borders are loosened, many white girls will choose black male as racial-sexual superiors. And then white males will no longer dominate their white community since so many white girls prefer blacks as alpha males.

    Libertarians may argue that loss of borders will favor individuals over groups. True to some extent. But because certain groups have more of certain kinds of individuals, it will come to favor certain groups over others.

    Suppose one group is made up of people A with average IQ of 95. Another group is made up of people B with average IQ of 120. Suppose there are borders between them. So, in Realm A, the A people dominate powerful institutions. In realm B, the B people dominate powerful institutions.
    Now, suppose libertarians argue that, as both realms favor group power, individual power is stifled within the border by group cohesion. Why should individuals not be allowed the play both realms?

    So, suppose the borders are lowered, and individuals can win across borders. But which group will produce more winner-individuals? Group A with 95 average IQ or group B with 120 average IQ? Group B individuals will tend to win. So, even though it’s a victory of individuals, it will defacto lead to the tribal supremacy of Group B since many more of its individuals will rise to the top in the new realm that unites both worlds.

    This is why Bryan Caplan is full of shit when he says he’s an individualist-libertarian. Would he support such a thing if Jews had an average IQ of 95? No, it’s because average Jewish IQ is 115, which means that if everyone is allowed to play the global game, Jewish individuals will win out over other individuals of other groups. When a lot of Jewish individuals win, individual power turns into group/tribal power. Look at Adelson schmoozing with Haim Saban.

    In Japan, Japanese athletes get to play. Some might say it’s unfair since Japanese sports isn’t open to people all over the world. But if Japan did that, Japanese will lose big time since they are mostly a small people. Blacks and whites will totally dominate most Japanese sports. We can argue it’s really just the victory of individuals, but many more black and white individuals are bigger and stronger than Japanese individuals.
    Heck, even in Sumo where Japanese square off against fellow Asian Mongols, the Jappers have been wiped off the mound. Japanese have hardly won a championship in the past 1o yrs. Three grand champs are all Mongo.

    So, if you want your people to win at least in your own realm, you need borders.
    When there was segregation, whites could win sports in the white realm, and blacks could win in the black realm. But once the borders were destroyed, a lot of blacks won and lots of whites lost.
    Where is the white running back?

    So, getting rid of borders doesn’t do away with tribalism or tribal victory. It leads to defacto tribal domination of certain groups who are more composed of individuals with certain special talents.
    NBA is essentially practiced as a ‘black sport’.

  82. As Jews grow more powerful, the more allergic they grow about criticism of Jewish power.

    When Jews didn’t rule America, all this talk of Jewish power could be dismissed as hyperbole and paranoia. Also, since Jews didn’t have supreme power, they didn’t control the national agenda. Therefore, anti-Jewish talk was just talk. It had limited effect on real power.

    But now that Jews do rule America, any talk of Jewish power could expose the nature/extent of Jewish power and lead to all sorts of stumbling blocks for the Jewish-globalist agenda.

    [MORE]

    Anti-Jewish talk is no longer just talk but could serve to derail the Jewish plans around the world.

    If your agenda isn’t dominant, so what if others put it down? Whether people praise it or oppose it, it’s not what’s on the table. So, who cares?

    But once your agenda is dominant, you want it to proceed unopposed. So, you don’t want any kind of talk that might serve as an obstacle.

    Same with homos. When homos were far from powerful, they understood the need for free speech and took criticism.
    But as they grew more powerful and came to control the national agenda, they fear any talk that might derail their goals.

    We might assume that the more powerful something becomes, it will grow more relaxed, generous, and magnanimous. This may be true when the power is majority power, which is why white gentiles lowered their guard. As they had elite and mass power, they took their power for granted for all eternity like in the Hare and Tortoise story.

    But when elite minority take power, they become even more nervous despite its great power because if it loses mass support/sympathy in regards to the Narrative, the tide can turn against its interests. The success of elite minority depends on TOTAL victory and total domination to cower the masses.
    So, the more powerful Jews and homos become, they become even more intolerant and aggressive.
    It would be wrong to expect them to become like white gentiles. The dynamics are too different.

    Lots of Jews worked with Muslims against Christian Europe and Middle East.

    Also, plenty of Jews were involved in the EUROPEAN slave trade.

    And if slavery is a ‘sin’, black Africans have been practicing this ‘sin’ for 10,000 yrs. At least.

    I understand hodgepodge, that’s how I came out of nowhere to win two terms as president.

    “…think about how rapidly the whole issue of the LGBT community and discrimination against gays and lesbians has shifted. The Republican party, even the most conservative, they have much less ability…”

    Show me a political party that can oppose LGBT(n) and win elections.

  86. His vision for the future of America is that of an Ottoman market where slaves from different parts of the world are brought in to be sold. That’s been done already and didn’t advance civilization forward one bit. He doesn’t seem to mention liking to see whites in these out of the mainstream places, only exotics. Also, he has to work blacks and homosexuals into every conversation but perhaps that’s understandable coming from him. Then again, Bush was hardly any different. His own daughter was married by a black clergyman and he claimed he was deeply hurt when some rapper said he ‘didn’t care’ about blacks, surpassing any feelings felt when the country experienced a couple of real disasters. Bill Clinton and his wife beamed before a college audience as they crowed about how the country’s whites would become a minority and how good that would be. John McCain’s son is married to a black, his daughter seems to be a lesbian and they adopted a dark-skinned child from Bangladesh which makes them a real mainstream all-American family(not). Another great leader of ours, John Boehner, has a daughter that married a black who looks like a grungy Rastafarian. The political leaders we have can’t even keep their own families intact let alone have any idea about keeping the country together.

  90. Off topic – or maybe not – a DC Councilwoman is trying to get $20 million to open an all-boys college prep school for blacks and Hispanics. Apparently, white boys need not apply. I realize that no white boy living in DC and in his right mind would apply, but the coconuts to openly reject white and Asian kids is amazing.

    The initiative is called, “Empowering Males of Color.”

    The WaPost and other media outlets don’t seem too troubled by the title. I’m sure that they’d be fine with an “Empowering White Boys” initiative in West Virginia.

  94. There is mistrust between the police and minority communities. Solution: train the police. More.

    Classic leftist response: more training, more education, more rules. Classic re-education camp response. Leftists believe in the blank slate theory of human development–all nurture, no nature. In the future, everything not prohibited will be mandatory.

    Notice how it doesn’t work very well as humans aren’t particularly malleable. But doubling down on re-education they must.

Opponent, James M Cox, Democrat (party of the old and reconstituted Klan), supporter of Woodrow Wilson. Woodrow Wilson, rayciss, put his stamp of approval on Birth of a Nation. Birth of a Nation, inspiration for William J Simmons’ reconstitution of the Klan. Reconstituted Klan, promised to defend the nation during WW1 against the usual suspects, but also against among other things, “bootleggers, graft, unfair business deals, sex and scandals”. Warren Gameliel Harding’s presidential legacy, “bootlegging, graft, unfair business, sex and scandals.” Don’t see the connection, give references.

    A fair number of white boys get killed, mainly on the outer fringes of London, but it has been ten years since a white girl was stabbed in London. Black girls get hit by stray bullets, and Asian girls are sometimes stabbed and quite frequently burnt to death, which also happened to one white girl. The great bulk of youth murder victims are black, Turkish (the Turkish gangs are notably hardcore), or south-Asian males.

  103. First Obama says that he thinks politicians won´t be successful by relying on racial fears, taking a stance for one group against another. The politicians he means are of course leftist politicians like himself, because they are the only ones who would take a side and make a living out of race baiting. Conservatives anyway don´t even dare to take the side of whites, they only say: justice should be done to everybody.
    Actually Obama tries to excuse his rather mild position on Ferguson and Zimmermann/Martin by that, so he does not mean leftists politicians in generally but actually himself.
    But than – and that is a very populated trick among leftists – he turns things around. By saying Republicans do not dare to be other than cheering to gays anymore and so they bettered themselves, he implies that it would be rightwing people who have the more extreme positions on political matters in general, Zimmermann/Martin, Ferguson especially.

    That way he gets it all: excusing his mildness to his more fanatic followers, being the wise guy who tells his comrades to be cooperative, not aggressive and last but not least rightwing people are the nasty ones anyway

  105. Obama Derangement Syndrome. Look, I’m no great fan of his administration, and even less of the symbolic politics “progressives” in the Democratic Party. (The part of me that’s favorable to the Democrats is when they seek to mildly redistribute income, i.e. think “lunchpail Democrat” or “FDR-Truman-JFK-LBJ except for Vietnam Democrat.”)

    I detest Obama’s attorney general; I think Obamacare is a ridiculously expensive failure; and I am appalled by the climate change fraud. And I think, in general, that he’s been a diffident administrator and a mediocre leader. Better than Bush Junior, but that’s not saying much. I do think Obama is underrated in the Middle East, having been more forceful than his opponents are willing to admit, yet prudent.

    But this? This is a complete nothingburger. Obama simply tosses another anodyne thumbs-up to e pluribus unum, and expressed approval of the idea that it’s harder for the wingnuts to engage in fag-baiting these days.

  107. Yes.
    Quote:

    Presumably, Jews and Asians are disproportionately represented at Harvard because they tend to get higher standardized tests scores and perform better in high school. The schools also put their thumbs on the scale for African Americans, who tend to underperform on those measures, in an effort to achieve diversity and remedy the lingering effects of past discrimination. Which leaves rural whites screwed from both ends: Outperformed by Jews and Asians and then having blacks that they’ve outperformed chosen over them to fix a problem they have nothing to do with.
    But none of that is new. It was a hot topic when I was in junior high three decades ago. More interesting is this:

    [W]hile most extracurricular activities increase your odds of admission to an elite school, holding a leadership role or winning awards in organizations like high school R.O.T.C., 4-H clubs and Future Farmers of America actually works against your chances. Consciously or unconsciously, the gatekeepers of elite education seem to incline against candidates who seem too stereotypically rural or right-wing or “Red America.”
    This provides statistical confirmation for what alumni of highly selective universities already know. The most underrepresented groups on elite campuses often aren’t racial minorities; they’re working-class whites (and white Christians in particular) from conservative states and regions. Inevitably, the same underrepresentation persists in the elite professional ranks these campuses feed into: in law and philanthropy, finance and academia, the media and the arts.

How many other population groups are as widely distributed among the nations of world?

    Can you imagine the clusterf*ck it’s gonna be when there isn’t this critical supply of white males to keep infrastructure running in cold climates (US, Europe)?! At best everything will be half-assed and rigged and unreliable. The only case where it wouldn’t be a problem, a looming catastrophe, is if these critical white males were being replaced by Japanese or Korean men. But they’re not.

    Throw in the importation of Muslim refugees and Boise and Minneapolis in 2050 will be like Grozny in 2000 (sans the lily-white demographics).

  113. Russia is not advancing into Ukraine, it’s local ethnic Russians fighting the Kiev regime with the help of volunteers from the Russian Federation. I think Putin and the rest of the Russian officials are being truthful when they say they want a unified and federal Ukraine as a neighbour and they want the fighting to end in eastern Ukraine. The fighting doesn’t end there though because the Kiev regime wants to draw Russia into a war. Why? Because their economy is so wrecked their only hope is a war, NATO intervention and then a kind of Marshall Plan paid for by the EU. They’re being coached by Washington to try this scheme. That’s my guess.

    Whatever the reason, the fighting in eastern Ukraine has really got the Russian public in a fighting mood, judging by what I can see on the web. There’s a video with footage of the fighting in Donbass with a song called “Fight Club” as the soundtrack. I looked up the lyrics and they include lines about fighting “your way out of hell ’til Babylon is gone and nothing else still remains” … “Our mortal foe..Babylon of our era – It took our lives away” and lots about embracing the pain.

    The situation is a bit like that in Ireland in the late 1960s at the time of the Arms Crisis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arms_Crisis
    The difference being that there are a 100 million Russians and they have nukes.

    The Middle East is a hellhole. It’s always a matter of minimizing damage. Both Bushes screwed up badly, but especially junior. I was never once taken in by the “Arab Spring,” but I don’t blame Obama for that failure. He never should’ve let himself be cajoled into drawing or implying a “red line” in Syria, but he’s been willing to use force without expanding the overall presence.

    The Republicans have no cohesive alternatives. Nothing that even pretends to make sense. The Benghazi circus is nothing but Hillary-bashing. The only president if my lifetime who has made any major positive change there was Carter and his Camp David agreement. Everything else has pretty much been a slow-motion fustercluck.

    I am not happy with Obama’s policies in the Middle East, but I find it difficult to be very critical given the utter disaster he stepped into, and the relative lack of useful tools to do very much about it. These people have been hacking each other to bits long before Jesus H. Christ appeared on the scene, and I think they’ll keep right on doing it until he comes back.

    Comics are full of these lame attempts to turn white characters into non-whites, because that’s the only way to make it work; turn an already-popular character into a non-white. It ropes the existing fans by putting a bit of steak next to the pile of shit. But non-white start-ups are pretty much always non-starters.

    But those small drops in sales translate into megabucks when it comes time to make the movie. Why risk the success of a billion dollars worth of movie trilogy chasing a poor demographic? This is why they’re stuck with the likes of Nick Fury, who nobody cares about anyway.

    It’s the reason Gamergate happened, to stop the gaming industry degenerate into SJW dominated comic business.

    Video games? No way they turn into the cesspool that comics are. At least, not for the foreseeable future. Games are like movies. Each one is effectively its own, short-term business venture. Even more movies than movies, because they require so much technical know-how, far more than a movie does. The competition’s too cutthroat and the timeline’s too short. Although, granted, developers’ minds are at least as captured by the Synagogue’s Narrative as the rest of the population. But, taken over by talentless English and Dyke Studies majors? No.

    If anything, game studios seem more impervious to NAMversity than the rest of tech does.

    Comics take 3 or 4 mediocre people to produce (possible exception for the colorist and maybe the penciller) and they’re made to go on forever (good targets).

  121. On second thought, not quite as movies as the movies. Film is a much more known quantity, far more consistent in production method than games. The jobs are established and don’t change much at all. Thus, a film studio can consist of a handful of idea men who can go out and hire all the people they need once they’ve got a project in mind. The exception being CG which (like game development) is still innovating like crazy, and so benefits from a true studio structure. Games and CG both have a real studio structure which is more vulnerable to Predatory Diversity than movie studios.

    But on the other other hand, stuff like Epic’s Unreal Engine make a leaner model viable. And top talent are constantly leaving their old studios to start over from scratch with a new one. A game studio is mostly about the talent, not 500k$ cameras, huge sets, etc.

  124. But your Asian…so to translate what you said:

    “As an Asian male I’m worried that whites will reject all people…including wonderfully genteel people like myself who aren’t troublemakers…because that would be bad for me because then I would not get to take part in a white society and white economic system”

    Your post was nothing but self-interest. If your children are mixed race then that frankly is your own fault and you should have thought ahead and gone through multiple future scenarios in your mind before picking a marriage partner.

    My advice? Pick a side and stick with it.

    Whites…even ultra-nationalist whites…are the most tolerant people on the planet. If I knew there was an Asian male who said “I support you…I don’t want Asian women marrying your men and your men marrying my Asian women and we will unite in this common bond of protecting borders…even if that means I and my progeny would have to live amongst….*gasp* other Asians…I am fine with that” I’d be much more inclined to make exceptions here and there for people I know post no threat to my world view.

    You either believe in culture and nations or you don’t. You either believe Chinese should be living in China or you don’t. There is no Grey Area.

    It’s not my problem as a white person if quite a few Asian people don’t want to live in Asia…and Even Worse…Don’t Want To Fight to Make Asia a better, more Liveable Place.

  126. Thanks.

    This site also seems to have a comprehensive summary of the Obamas charitable giving — comprehensive if you assume all of their donations were reflected in their tax filings:

    Obama Gave the Church Less Than One-Half Percent of $18 Million Income Over 12 Years

    The 12 years being 2000 to 2011.

    Interesting to note: The president stopped donating to Wright’s church completely in 2008 when controversy grew over whether Wright’s black liberation theology had affected the president. Prior to that, the Obamas gave a total of $53,770 to Wright’s church over a three-year period from 2005 to 2007. The largest contribution was for $26,270 in 2007.

    So he seems to have given a good deal of cash, just looking at the sum, during the three years right before he stopped/started running for President (he was a US Senator at the time). He also gave to the Congressional Black Caucus.

    Anyway, the general point still stands.

    And Obama is not smart/devious enough to have such a “strategy” — he’s just a patina of politically correct bullshit, with nothing underneath — scratch the surface and what you have is what you scratched off the surface. More than anything this ‘interview’ highlights his shallowness.

  128. “Yeah the legal government that took power by force,…”

    Does bombing an apartment building count? Oh, wait, that isn’t Kiev. Never mind.

    “…has members of parliament who personally repeatedly assault and kidnap people…”

    Does poisoning dissidents with Polonium and murdering journalists count? Oh, wait, that isn’t Kiev, either. Never mind.

    “…and who ran elections in which their opponents were attacked and beaten repeatedly…”

    What about opponents being imprisoned and having their companies parceled out to the president’s dojo buddies? Oh, drat! — am I at least getting warm?

    “…The legal government that uses rockets and artillery on its civilians.”

    As opposed to the light spritzes of lavender water that a certain other government delivered throughout Chechnya in order to bring them back into line?

    Fill in the rest yourself. Even you probably see where this is going.

  129. Yeah, great, go for it. Just don’t use the coercive taxing power of the state to make everyone pay for it. As a White, I don’t want to be forced to finance special schools for ‘males of color’. Period. Especially since I strongly believe (because this is what the evidence shows) that academic attainment, including behavioral characteristics that contribute to that, is mostly genetic. So such schools, which are explicitly designed to raise the achievement levels of NAM males, are generally a waste of money.

    So if you or anyone else thinks it’s a good idea, then like I said go for it — create a charitable foundation, solicit donations, and build/staff the school.

  130. “Anyway, I like the idea of Russia sticking up for Russians and the US government having its plans thwarted.”

    Anyone who thinks the Victoria Nulands of the world have been “thwarted” by Ukraine needs to stick with Dora the Explorer for their daily dose of geopolitics.

  131. Video games? No way they turn into the cesspool that comics are. At least, not for the foreseeable future. Games are like movies. Each one is effectively its own, short-term business venture. Even more movies than movies, because they require so much technical know-how, far more than a movie does. The competition’s too cutthroat and the timeline’s too short. Although, granted, developers’ minds are at least as captured by the Synagogue’s Narrative as the rest of the population.

    You’re forgetting about James Bowery.

    Comics are full of these lame attempts to turn white characters into non-whites, because that’s the only way to make it work; turn an already-popular character into a non-white. It ropes the existing fans by putting a bit of steak next to the pile of shit.

  132. but I missed the part where Yanukovich was legally removed from power.

    You missed him leaving the country for the embrace of his Russian patrons when the military would not take orders anymore. You also missed this.

    The lot of you should forsake talking about public affairs in favor of imaginative literature. You might find it much more satisfying and you would not be so confounded between fiction and non-fiction.

    “Neutrality, it’s what’s for dinner. Now go stew in your own juices.”

    Thanks to an open border immigration policy, juices coming to those United States sooner than we’d perhaps expect.

  134. Thanks, JSM, for looking up that quote so I didn’t have to.

    There is endless talent to be found among young white guys in middle America that is met with nothing but constant, systematic, official discouragement and exclusion.

    “The refugee resettlement policies are geared towards disrupting our “white homelands” in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maine, other states, cities, towns and sections of states such as Tennesee which has been invaded by Muslims and Muslim refugees.”

    It’s so unfair. Did the general build ever say they wanted this?

    The funny thing is that if Obama gets his way and the US becomes Hodgepodia, an unrepentant zombie white Southern KKKer from Civil War days would have the last laugh. The South will have won, the US will have become an extension of Caribbean culture, for better and worse.

    We all are Caribs now. Forward Comrades! Hodgepodia becons!

  137. “Too bad he isn’t more like Putin or the king.” Cable news bozos

    Gee, wonder why the economy is screwed. When my chopper got shot we went at it with hammers. Have a govt shutdown and just keep the memorials, parks and army operating.

  138. Who honestly gives a shit about Ukraine? It’s a country with no history and a government led by Jews, pseudo-Poles, and Chechans. Let Putin have the whole wretched place.

  139. >>“The Kiev regime” is more properly known as ‘the legal government’.<<

    LOL. That's pathetic.

    The great bulk of youth murder victims are black, Turkish (the Turkish gangs are notably hardcore), or south-Asian males.

    Of the 172 teen homicide victims on the site you linked, 5 have possible turkish names: Bilal MIRZA, Dogan ISMAIL, Shenol AHMET, Etem Celebi, Mahir OSMAN

    Of the 5; Mahir OSMAN is east african and Bilal MIRZA is more likely to be Iranian (also hinted by definitely-not-turkish name Aliza MIRZA being also present)

  142. She’s the newest poster girl for credentialed incompetents.

    People thought the T was bad 30 years ago when it was essentially a union hall for connected sons of Hibernia. It’s transformation into the Third World hiring hall has proven that the true depths were unplumbed.

    The T is just a very public microcosm of the current decline in government’s ability to do anything well. The vast majority of its budget goes to debt service, ludicrous salaries and benefits, and enormous pensions. When you’re operating the oldest subway system in America, a lot of things need fixing, especially the 40+-year old cars on the Red and Orange Lines, but the aforementioned budget items are the priority.

    Maintenance? Today’s Boston Herald details the management failures:

    http://www.bostonherald.com/news_opinion/local_coverage/2015/02/mbta_stopped_reporting_repair_needs

    Since the T serves Greater Boston’s Third World population and the SWPLs living in the ‘burbs, it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll express enough discontent to get voters to increase its budget.

  143. I agree that regular Russian armed forces are involved with most of the fighting …

    I can’t recall ever seeing any real evidence of this. Eastern Ukraine and the Russian Federation have more than enough civilian volunteers with military training to hold up their end of this unnecessary civil war.

    In related news, I notice the once venerable Spectator did a hit piece on my man Givi, commander of the Somalia Battalion over there:

    http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/coffeehouse/2015/02/do-these-grotesque-pictures-show-that-putin-wants-europe-as-his-bitch/

    (I notice too they toned down the American prison slang they original used as the title when the blog post was first posted and the URL was made.)

    I grew up in a home with a subscription to the Spectator but I’m siding with Givi on this one. Apparently “Givi” is the code name he chose because it’s the name of his half-Georgian grandfather who fought in the Great Patriotic War. YouTube has him interviewed by a Georgian reporter. You can find it by searching for: “[eng subs] Givi answers questions of Georgian journalist “.

    It’s one of the funny old paradoxes of politics that guys like Givi and Motorola are stronger defenders of real conservatism than you’d find at the Spectator after Auberon Waugh and Enoch Powell died.

  145. To add to my earlier post, and to be fair to the Spectator, they just posted an article today that talks some sense about Ukraine:

    Want to understand the conflict in Ukraine? Compare it to Ireland

    http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/marydejevsky/2015/02/want-to-understand-the-conflict-in-ukraine-compare-it-to-ireland/

    I don’t really agree with the comparison to Ireland but at least it’s better than the earlier piece by Prince and the Permanent Revolution.

  147. You’re on the record Simon with the self-assessment that you’re a person of superior discernment because you advocate factually false and perverse things because these false and perverse judgments do not appear in regular newspapers. You said that, not me. Very seldom does the bizarre vanity of a large swath of the intelligentsia get such lucid expression. Pity for your students.

    “There is endless talent to be found among young white guys in middle America that is met with nothing but constant, systematic, official discouragement and exclusion.”

    And it’s not just the working class who are facing these problems. It’s at all levels.

    Correction: “General public” not “general build”
