Via Buzzfeed, here is Apple CEO Tim Cook’s memo:

Team,

Like so many of you, equality is at the core of my beliefs and values.

That’s why I deserved to be compensated $373 million for my labor in 2015 and you didn’t: because I believe in equality .

… I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights. Equating the two runs counter to our ideals as Americans.

Therefore, people I disagree with politically should have no civil rights. They should be outlaws subjected to any violence that people who agree with me feel like inflicting upon them, those bastards. After all, I made $373 million last year. What did they make?

Regardless of your political views, we must all stand together on this one point — that we are all equal.

Although not in income. That’s a totally separate question.

… We have always welcomed people from every walk of life to our stores around the world and showed them that Apple is inclusive of everyone. …

Our prices discriminate so we don’t have to. And we’re going to be opening an Apple Store in Los Angeles south of Wilshire Boulevard any day now. Trust me!

Okay, I’ll admit it: nobody at Apple has come up with a single good idea since Steve Jobs died six years ago. But that’s not the point, the point is that is that I made $373 million last year and you didn’t.

In the wake of the tragic and repulsive events in Charlottesville, we are stepping up to help organizations who work to rid our country of hate. Apple will be making contributions of $1 million each to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. We will also match two-for-one our employees’ donations to these and several other human rights groups, between now and September 30.

In the coming days, iTunes will offer users an easy way to join us in directly supporting the work of the SPLC.

After all, the SPLC only has $303 million. I made more than that in one year!

Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.”…

As we all know, Dr. King was head of the SPLC.

Oh … the legal department has informed me that Dr. King was, technically speaking, head of the SCLC. But, as my good friend Morris Dees has assured me, only total nerds care about a letter here, a letter there. By the way, Morris shared with me some really creative marketing ideas he’s come up with for unloading those iPads that are cluttering up inventory. Did you know that he’s a member of the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame?

Best,

Tim

    You're right, Tiny!

    Thanks to your indefatigable efforts as Unz.com's only Voice of Sanity, I have seen the light--and also have pulled down the statues of Henry Ford and Stonewall Jackson that used to occupy the peak of my roof!

    With my eyes now fully woke I went down to my state's capital city. I saw as never before the poor people of color absolutely trembling in fear while the badwhites surrounded them!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07aYYzEUY-w

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I06t5njtt4o

    There was this time where this poor frail skinny black gal was defending herself against a rampaging mob...precisely because they were denying her any comestibles other than the snack she carried in her right arm. She looked as though she were going to faint away with fear and hunger at any moment!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnNp0BvnUlE

    No, wait. Wrong vid.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doUn0WY33YU

    I just couldn't imagine how she could go from day to day with all that fear, no money, no house, living in a crime ridden hell hole, all that persecution.

    And she was so shy--it was clear why her opinion was underrepresented. And when she dared whisper a peep, those whites shut her down!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kt7FSyK_Ac

    But you know what really haunts me? The terrible terrible ghetto conditions that she moved to in 2011 in order to hold body and soul together.

    http://www.city-data.com/zips/98506.html

    And all so she could struggle to support herself and her chihuahua on a mere $70,000 for nine months' unsupervised work with no assessment of outcomes, plus benefits (health plan, paid vacation, paid sick leave, subsidized house and car insurance, subsidized parking, free mass transit, climate controlled environment, no heavy lifting, 24/7 police protection, state pension, deferred compensation plan). Surely she deserves at least $3.8 million in reparations each and every year!

    Plus she has to work in the middle of all those Lynchin' Trees!

    Know what else? Prepare yourself, because this one is the biggest and worst, Tiny.

    She was torn from her family, put in chains belowdecks on this splintery wooden rack, and forced to stay there for the entire middle passage from Philadelphia to Olympia, WA.

    I was literally shaking when I learned that! She is being held in virtual slavery at The Evergreen State College!

    http://www.naimalowe.net/blog/2010/03/31/i-win-and-so-can-you

    You are so so correct. Thank you for being the luciferian bringer of light to this magazine!

    , @Hapalong Cassidy
    If Tiny Duck is a real person (which is unlikely) - let me see if I have this correct: he is white, in his 40's, left-wing, gay, and also a virgin. I didn't think such a combination was even humanly possible. I mean, I could at least see a gay right wing dude keeping his virginity out of a sense of shame. But a gay far- leftist? How ugly would he have to be where he couldn't get at least a quickie at some point (especially from the notoriously non-discriminating black guys he's so fond of)?

    American’s Commie slogan is the damnation chant: Racist, sexist anti-gay. That is the Leftist trinity, in reverse. The Left intends to treat all of us exactly the way the Bolsheviks treated the kulaks.

    Gay Tim Cook will be thrilled to watch as near future SJWs take The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, whose heart bleeds for Negroes and who cannot defend anything to do with even Robert E. Lee, and roast him – in the Commie way – for his homophobic sins, which he transmitted to the world.

    Rod’s beloved church-going Negroes, for whom he trashes most of Southern history and culture, will not be there to try to save him. Nor should any group of still free-ranging ‘neo-Confederates.’

    I said a long time ago, when the tech giants were in bed with the ChiComs, helping them build out their hi-tech police state, that these lessons would be applied to Americans. That’s what we’re seeing today. Andrew Anglin is certainly not my cup of tea, but what’s happening to him is monstrous. He is literally being un-personed by the tech companies, who are very clearly colluding with one another to do it.

    The Opposite Rule of Liberalism is on full display here. The people screaming “Nazi” and screaming about Trump being a dictator, are the ones imposing the police state on us. They have their hired goons on the streets and they are using the tools of power to harass the opposition.

    , @Barnard
    I would be surprised if Cook hasn't read at least one of the articles exposing the SPLC as a fraud. He doesn't care, just like the reporters who cite the SPLC when they talk about hate groups don't care. They are on the right side of history and that is all that matters. It is just virtue signalling, if Morris Dees spends his donation on gold plated toilet seats, it makes no difference to Cook.

    Tim Cook is using deception to keep the left from turning on the oligarchs. Certainly the leftists who have been using violence to silence minorities are not standing up for human rights. They are attacking Americans right to assemble. I suppose the ACLU still defends the rights of minorities to assemble, will they soon be considered a hate group ?

    Does the ACLU believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights ? Trump has sided with the ACLU and believes Americans have the right to assemble without being violently assaulted.

    Reading the reactions to Charlottesville has astounded me.

    You would think my capacity to be so astounded would be severely diminished after having followed news of the far-right in Britain and Europe for decades and thus having read many times headlines like ‘violence erupts at far-right rally’ when an honest headline would read ‘violent leftists attack peaceful far-right rally’. Yet the reactions to Charlottesville, with Trump derangement added to the mix, are so living-in-their-own-world that I find myself being quite incapable of even-ing—I just cannot even.

    I hope Trump sues him for libel.

    This is really about rooting out any and all potential HUWHITE cisgendered male wreckers. What Tim Cook and the rest of SV wants is to stamp out Damorist thinking once and for all before it catches on.

    Silicon Valley has set its HUWHITE male workforce on notice that it needs to immediately start engage in some PC virtue signaling by making their own contributions to the ADL and SPLC asap or risk being under suspicion as being potential wreckers.

Apple CEO Tim Cook supports massively increasing the number of H-1B visas issued to foreigners. Tim Cook is a member in good standing of the greedy Cheap Labor Faction of the United States.

    Tim Cook wants to replace as many Americans as he can with H-1B visa foreigners in order to lower wages for technology workers in the United States. Tim Cook is a greedy, money-grubbing baby boomer corporate scumbag.

    Tim Cook supports mass immigration. Mass immigration brings Islamic Terrorism to the United States. Mass immigration destroys cultural cohesion and increases multicultural mayhem in the United States.

    Mass immigration lowers wages, increases income inequality, swamps schools, overwhelms hospitals, increases housing costs, causes sprawl and harms the environment.

    So why does a Russian Immigrant Jew named Sergie Brin and the homosexual Tim Cook get to use this technology to racially dispossess The Historic Native Born White American Majority Working Class?

    I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights. Equating the two runs counter to our ideals as Americans.

    Of course that isn’t who was opposing them, not with force. The people fighting them in the streets were violent commie radicals who are opposed to human rights – human rights such as freedom of speech

    Regardless of your political views, we must all stand together on this one point — that we are all equal.

    Who is Tim Cook to tell us where and when we must “all stand together”. Who elected him? Oh, that’s right – $ 373 million elected him.

    What I find odd is that here in Britain the business and financial elite are still right wing, often very right wing, although I do note the baleful influence of the US tech and finance industry leaking in. Why is this, the stronger influence of the immigrant Jewish population from Eastern Europe, lack of the old aristocracy, not as extensive a system of private schools and the reactionary attitudes they instill?

    I don't see that myself. The business and financial elite are pro-business, yes, but not right wing. The Conservative Party is just a more pro-business version of the Labour Party, with slightly fewer of its pathologies. But the financial elite - well, take a look at the Economist and the Financial Times, in lockstep with the invade the world and invite the world agenda.

    These people would do - and have done - terrible long-term damage to the UK, in the interests of getting short term cheap labour and a few years profits. Inviting people from the Caribbean to work in the NHS and from Pakistan to work in mills and foundries has turned out to be a very expensive option. Cheap labour is damn expensive.

    (I'll make an exception for that fine Wetherspoons chap, but I don't see any "out" very right-wing businesspeople - it's bad for business these days.)

    I disagree that Nazi's are part of the right.

    1. Nazi is a socialist ideology. The historical US was founded on the ideals of the enlightenment particularly Lock: rights to life, liberty and (private) property. Socialism is not concerned with liberty at all, it is organized use of force for the greater good/equality. The right of contract is is the Constitution. The national government was severely hobbled in the Constitution.

    2. Nazi's share with the right exactly one characteristic: nationalism. Most socialism is international focused instead of nation focused. Yet the early US was a weak confederation of states, not one strong nation. People could move freely among the states to join one of their choosing at any time. So even if you viewed the States as Nations, the people had thirteen competing nations to choose from and the nation you were born and raised in had no more claim to you than the state you moved to.

    3. Nazi's are collectivists, the US right was individualistic. The US right is more individualistic than the US left. St. Reagan talked about unleashing the individual. The left never talks about that.

    , @Vinteuil
    "...non-ironic nazis are part of 'the right'..."

    Don't be a fool, my friend.

    The nazis, first & foremost, despised the Slavs, planned to exterminate &/or enslave them, and gave it their best try. Compared to what the nazis did to the people of Russia, the holocaust was a sideshow.

    The nazis were objectively anti-white.

    Please hear this from a Reaganite conservative. These organisations need to strive because they expose those Nazis and white supremacists who for whatever reason, jobs, career, or shame, choose to remain in the closet or perhaps they are too cowardly to come out into the open. Incidentally, ‘white nationalism’ is a preposterous term since when in history were whites as a whole ever a nation? If you look at contemporary America, a third generation American of Lebanese christian heritage will almost certainly pass off (and be socially accepted) as white especially if they have anglicized their name. A Hispanic on the other hand is usually regarded as non white even though they are often of Spanish heritage. Just take a close look at Jared Taylor, the granddaddy of contemporary white nationalism (Sic). Look again! You see, the guy has Amerindian blood and if you didn’t notice, you need to change your glasses.

    I agree SPLC is wrong in some of their classification -they have incorrectly classified some fringe religious groups as hate groups simply because the later have ‘robust’ views on sexual orientation based on their religious beliefs. But no organisation is perfect.

    All genuine conservatives should shout and regularly re-emphasize that racialism, prejudice and any form of ethno-nationalism has no place in contemporary american conservative discourse. These extremists get their inspiration from Nazi Germany, European Fascism, the heritage of southern segregation and from apartheid South Africa while we genuine conservatives believe in free market, small state, minimum regulation, low taxation, equality of opportunity, private property and a globalization which is inclusive and welcoming. America has been made ‘Great Again’ throughout its history by productive, risk taking, high quality immigrants of all backgrounds. The biggest motherfucker currently barricading himself in the White House will play no role in making ‘America Great Again’.

    Oh please, I have no reason to support the Nazis but punching right certainly didn't get us where we are. Look at what the Left does - sure, they dismiss a fringe as the fringe, but they don't worry themselves too much about disavowing them.

    Allowing them to take out an 'extreme right" means they move on to their new extreme - anyone who believes differently from them.

    Now the far-right itself has a problem with the purity spiral, I've known that they quite literally often go more extreme than Hitler. That's some accomplishment. Its not a good idea, but virtue signaling hits everyone and they have not had a way of moderating themselves.

    What I see in the flag wavers is a lack of discipline. In the end, preserving our shared American heritage - the Robert E Lee statue - was not nearly as important as the chance to LARP on camera, pretending to be people that southern segregationists fought and died fighting against.

    How different it might have been if Unite the Right had a simple fresh, unassociated logo and a few T-shirts printed up. Heck, a funny Pepe cartoon if you insist on edgy. Actually visibility uniting behind something, even if it's just putting on miserable T-shirt.

    This, combined with the pathetic intra-Google discussions around Damore, really reveal that even the brightest and most powerful are dopes and dupes.

    I would be surprised if Cook hasn’t read at least one of the articles exposing the SPLC as a fraud. He doesn’t care, just like the reporters who cite the SPLC when they talk about hate groups don’t care. They are on the right side of history and that is all that matters. It is just virtue signalling, if Morris Dees spends his donation on gold plated toilet seats, it makes no difference to Cook.

    OT: Arizona Senator Jeff Flake on immigration.

    Chaidez, the senator wrote, is an immigrant laborer who arrived on Flake’s father’s Arizona ranch as a 16-year-old undocumented worker who was willing to take on the most difficult, labor-intensive jobs. Chaidez’s “capacity for hard, backbreaking work was his sole credential in life,” Flake wrote, and without English language skills or a high school degree, he would not have been judged to be a high-value immigrant.

    In a way, it is somewhat refreshing to see an advocate for “comprehensive immigration reform” come out and admit their business model is based on the ability to exploit illegals by making them do dangerous, physically demanding work for low pay.

    Trump needs to launch a libel suit against to every media outlet, every journalist and celebrity who has said he sympathizes with the white supremacists.

    It is obviously very hard for a president to sue (and that’s a rightful precaution for maintaining free political speech) but no reasonable jury that read Trumps words could find most of the stories that followed to be anything less than deliberate deception designed to harm the president, which is libel.

    Not one suit. Not two. Thousands of them.

    Without that (or an equally grand counterattack) Trump is done.

    However, a really good mass of suits could turn this disaster into a victory (for Trump and decent politics, not the loathsome white supremacists). The media have thrown caution pretty far to the wind, enough that they’ve put their very existence in jeopardy.

    Thanks to the current law having been written by Democrat media industry lobbyists, it’s as near as makes no difference impossible for a “public figure” to win a defamation suit. Merely establishing that the defendant printed a harmful falsehood is not enough, nor is establishing that the defendant invented it out of thin air in the absence of any supporting evidence, nor that they unreasonably or nonsensically interpreted the evidence; public figures must prove the defendant knew of definitive proof that it was false before printing it.

I’ve taken them twice in my life; ironically, once to get to last year’s UNC-UK game in Las Vegas, and once to get to the Phoenix airport after the Final four. Never again. Here’s the email I got last night:

    Dear Jeremiah,
    We were horrified by the neo-Nazi demonstration that took place in Charlottesville, which resulted in the loss of life of a young woman as well as two Virginia State Troopers responding to the protest. There is simply no place for this type of bigotry, discrimination, and hate.

    As the country braces for more white supremacist demonstrations, we wanted to let you know what we are doing for the Uber community:

    We will act swiftly and decisively to uphold our Community Guidelines, including our policy against discrimination of any kind—this includes banning people from the app.

    24/7 in-app support is available to answer questions and address concerns. You always have the right to end your trip if you feel uncomfortable or disrespected.

    Now more than ever we must stand together against hatred and violence. Thank you for making our community one that we can all be proud of.

    Ask yourselves why in the aftermath of all this why everyone vaguely associated with the “Alt-Right” has gotten deplatformed (including staid outlets like Amren and Vdare) but Spencer keeps chugging along?

    Conspiracy Theory sewage. You have no evidence for your claims. Among other things the recent Alt Right "Port Huron" statement is not something a Agent Provovateur could conjure up in his head.

    Richard Spencer has made the Alt Right and the demographic transformation of the US the number one news story in the US.

    It wasn't a Nazi salute..it was the Roman salute. I suspect you are on board the demographic extermination of The Historic Native Born White American Majority Working Class.

    Richard Spencer is an outspoken critic of the Neo-Nazi coup in the Ukraine and Nina Kouprianova, being that she is Russian, very likely lost uncles and great Uncles in battle with the invading Waffen SS Army...

    Spencer is the real deal...the White guys who played for Joe PATERNO are the pussies...

    I think Spencer was taken off some social network for a while. He doesn't attack a particular group other than certain whites. He promotes pan-European identarianism. The people he seems to dislike are Milo, Alt-Lite and whites he views as traitors to the white race. And probably baby boomers.

  57. Ive just been thinking about the practical approaches to combating politicized corporations, and quickly came to the realization that this harassment of right-wingers by the big corps really is a declaration of war. There’s a reason that conservatives (inheriting the wisdom of years) have always been staunchly against politicization of organizations, not talking politics or religion in mixed company or at work, etc.

    The Charlottesville rally was called “unite the right” – for this exact reason.

    Correct. I’m good with the non-ironic Nazis and the DNA based white nationalists. I’m convinced that we need big tent.

    The question is, as an American Catholic, are they good with me? It’s a serious question.

    Richard Spencer, the last time I read anything of this thoughts, appeared to be holding Donald Trump in semi-contempt. I don’t see how a man who is in position of power, to influence culture and real policies in the direction Spencer would like to go, is worthy of any contempt. Disagree, perhaps. Discuss, perhaps. Contempt? That’s a problem.

    I like to believe it’s getting better, but there are quarters of the alt-white that seem to have nothing but pure contempt for anything Christianity. By the gods (wink, wink, nudge, nudge – we know they aren’t any), we’re going to have our gay marriage and throw off all those stupid social rules that held us back..or perhaps made us great for 1500+ years, if one is a little fairer with history.

    We cannot unite if people like me, a Catholic willing to overcome the social barrier, (and yes even Donald Trump might give white nationalists a fair hearing if they offer respect for his views), is part of “the problem”. Is an atheist white nationalist willing to at least drop their support for gay marriage (ie, just assent to putting homosexuality back in cultural closet and/or not fight about it)? I’m not asking to go church or put sodomy laws back in place, just respect that there’s at least historical precedence behind worries over homosexuality.

    Can I get the non-ironic Nazi to please at least not show up with swastika on the “Unite the Right” event? It’s a symbol foriegn to Western Culture, except in a context that’s all bad from the American POV. Can part of the discipline of uniting be show up in Western clothes of today? (Could I even get a tie??? (Wow.)) Maybe positive Western symbols like St. George’s cross, etc, if you insist on big flags? Right now an American flag is more than enough to cause melt downs in certain quarters. Who needs a Nazi flag?

    We need discipline from everyone on our side. We cannot unify behind “diversity”. That’s the other side. We will fail anyway if people supposedly united for a cause cannot even dress like there’s something at stake.

    Please hear this from a Reaganite conservative. These organisations need to strive because they expose those Nazis and white supremacists who for whatever reason, jobs, career, or shame, choose to remain in the closet or perhaps they are too cowardly to come out into the open. Incidentally, 'white nationalism' is a preposterous term since when in history were whites as a whole ever a nation? If you look at contemporary America, a third generation American of Lebanese christian heritage will almost certainly pass off (and be socially accepted) as white especially if they have anglicized their name. A Hispanic on the other hand is usually regarded as non white even though they are often of Spanish heritage. Just take a close look at Jared Taylor, the granddaddy of contemporary white nationalism (Sic). Look again! You see, the guy has Amerindian blood and if you didn't notice, you need to change your glasses.

    I agree SPLC is wrong in some of their classification -they have incorrectly classified some fringe religious groups as hate groups simply because the later have 'robust' views on sexual orientation based on their religious beliefs. But no organisation is perfect.

    All genuine conservatives should shout and regularly re-emphasize that racialism, prejudice and any form of ethno-nationalism has no place in contemporary american conservative discourse. These extremists get their inspiration from Nazi Germany, European Fascism, the heritage of southern segregation and from apartheid South Africa while we genuine conservatives believe in free market, small state, minimum regulation, low taxation, equality of opportunity, private property and a globalization which is inclusive and welcoming. America has been made 'Great Again' throughout its history by productive, risk taking, high quality immigrants of all backgrounds. The biggest motherfucker currently barricading himself in the White House will play no role in making 'America Great Again'.

    Oh please, I have no reason to support the Nazis but punching right certainly didn’t get us where we are. Look at what the Left does – sure, they dismiss a fringe as the fringe, but they don’t worry themselves too much about disavowing them.

    Allowing them to take out an ‘extreme right” means they move on to their new extreme – anyone who believes differently from them.

    Now the far-right itself has a problem with the purity spiral, I’ve known that they quite literally often go more extreme than Hitler. That’s some accomplishment. Its not a good idea, but virtue signaling hits everyone and they have not had a way of moderating themselves.

    This is really about rooting out any and all potential HUWHITE cisgendered male wreckers. What Tim Cook and the rest of SV wants is to stamp out Damorist thinking once and for all before it catches on.

    Silicon Valley has set its HUWHITE male workforce on notice that it needs to immediately start engage in some PC virtue signaling by making their own contributions to the ADL and SPLC asap or risk being under suspicion as being potential wreckers.

    I make $373 million less than Mr. Cook (to three significant figures), so he's probably 1,000 times better than me at paraphrasing. Still, I don't recall the exact occasion when Trump asserted the moral equivalence of "white supremacists and Nazis" with "those who stand up for human rights."

    In fairness, no they cannot. The truth exists and maroons of any type cannot remove it. It maybe slow it, but it cannot really stop it. My children know what’s going on and Charlottesville is not going change it. It’s just another bump in the road.

    What I see in the flag wavers is a lack of discipline. In the end, preserving our shared American heritage – the Robert E Lee statue – was not nearly as important as the chance to LARP on camera, pretending to be people that southern segregationists fought and died fighting against.

    How different it might have been if Unite the Right had a simple fresh, unassociated logo and a few T-shirts printed up. Heck, a funny Pepe cartoon if you insist on edgy. Actually visibility uniting behind something, even if it’s just putting on miserable T-shirt.

    Yes, the Nazi thing is stupid and neurotic and bigotry itself at this point. But if the people can’t let go of getting their pearl clutching reaction, they’re not serious either about anything more.

    The Alt-Right especially Andrew Anglin at The Daily Stormer have been attacking Tim Cook's reign at Apple for sometime.

    Anglin makes a strong point that the bulk of his contributions have come from Silicon Valley. Most likely from a underground of Damore fellow travelers and the teen kids attending Palo Alto and other SV schools.

    Heads up /pol/ kiddies and Neo-Nazi larpers Tim Cook is out to get you.

    Anglin has also pointed out that a very disproportionate share of The Daily Stormer’s web traffic came from SV. If the most woke HUWHITES are those living up close to the riches of Diversity or feel they are most under the gun from (((Globalism))) then it explains why the tech elites/TWMNBN are rapidly moving towards SHUT IT DOWN THE GOYIM KNOW mode.

    I do think it is time now for anyone who is evrn vaguely right to align together now. None of us will survive if we allow the giants to break us apart one by one.
     
    The Charlottesville rally was called "unite the right" - for this exact reason.

    Like them or not, non-ironic nazis are part of "the right". The enemy won't stop once they are done with the Anglins and the NSMs, they will immediately move the crosshairs left onto the next most extreme group.

    I disagree that Nazi’s are part of the right.

    1. Nazi is a socialist ideology. The historical US was founded on the ideals of the enlightenment particularly Lock: rights to life, liberty and (private) property. Socialism is not concerned with liberty at all, it is organized use of force for the greater good/equality. The right of contract is is the Constitution. The national government was severely hobbled in the Constitution.

    2. Nazi’s share with the right exactly one characteristic: nationalism. Most socialism is international focused instead of nation focused. Yet the early US was a weak confederation of states, not one strong nation. People could move freely among the states to join one of their choosing at any time. So even if you viewed the States as Nations, the people had thirteen competing nations to choose from and the nation you were born and raised in had no more claim to you than the state you moved to.

    3. Nazi’s are collectivists, the US right was individualistic. The US right is more individualistic than the US left. St. Reagan talked about unleashing the individual. The left never talks about that.

    From the Lumpengenstia site The Mary Sue:

    The ACLU’s California chapters have officially broken ranks from the rest of the ACLU National organization, announcing in a statement that they condemn groups who hide behind the First Amendment as an excuse to incite or engage in violence. They write:

    “Our country’s greatest strengths are the diversity of its people and the principles of equal dignity and inclusion that unite us all. There are troubling events planned in our state in the coming weeks. This is an incredibly painful and difficult time for millions of Californians. For those who are wondering where we stand – the ACLU of California fully supports the freedom of speech and expression, as well as the freedom to peacefully assemble. We review each request for help on a case-by-case basis, but take the clear position that the First Amendment does not protect people who incite or engage in violence. If white supremacists march into our towns armed to the teeth and with the intent to harm people, they are not engaging in activity protected by the United States Constitution. The First Amendment should never be used as a shield or sword to justify violence.”

    And let’s not fool ourselves here: the ACLU has a long history of defending Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacist provocateurs.

    Seeing at least a few chapters of the ACLU break ranks from the rest of the organization and condemn hate speech is heartening, for sure. Moreover, this spotty history doesn’t necessarily undo or eliminate the work they’ve done to actually protect civil rights. But equating hate speech with free speech is a mistake—I’m glad that the ACLU of California recognizes that, at least.

    Please hear this from a Reaganite conservative. These organisations need to strive because they expose those Nazis and white supremacists who for whatever reason, jobs, career, or shame, choose to remain in the closet or perhaps they are too cowardly to come out into the open. Incidentally, 'white nationalism' is a preposterous term since when in history were whites as a whole ever a nation? If you look at contemporary America, a third generation American of Lebanese christian heritage will almost certainly pass off (and be socially accepted) as white especially if they have anglicized their name. A Hispanic on the other hand is usually regarded as non white even though they are often of Spanish heritage. Just take a close look at Jared Taylor, the granddaddy of contemporary white nationalism (Sic). Look again! You see, the guy has Amerindian blood and if you didn't notice, you need to change your glasses.

    I agree SPLC is wrong in some of their classification -they have incorrectly classified some fringe religious groups as hate groups simply because the later have 'robust' views on sexual orientation based on their religious beliefs. But no organisation is perfect.

    All genuine conservatives should shout and regularly re-emphasize that racialism, prejudice and any form of ethno-nationalism has no place in contemporary american conservative discourse. These extremists get their inspiration from Nazi Germany, European Fascism, the heritage of southern segregation and from apartheid South Africa while we genuine conservatives believe in free market, small state, minimum regulation, low taxation, equality of opportunity, private property and a globalization which is inclusive and welcoming. America has been made 'Great Again' throughout its history by productive, risk taking, high quality immigrants of all backgrounds. The biggest motherfucker currently barricading himself in the White House will play no role in making 'America Great Again'.

    Most of us would prefer of form of civic nationalism as our host proposes. Unfortunately, since whites have come under attack, we are forced to defend ourselves, sometimes going to extremes with ideologies they may not fully embrace.

    If the so-called conservatives had been doing their jobs, we never would have gotten to this point. But you boomers preferred cheap labor over your fellow Americans quality of life and sense of community.

    You broke it. We have to figure out how to fix it.

    Trump needs to launch a libel suit against to every media outlet, every journalist and celebrity who has said he sympathizes with the white supremacists.

    It is obviously very hard for a president to sue (and that's a rightful precaution for maintaining free political speech) but no reasonable jury that read Trumps words could find most of the stories that followed to be anything less than deliberate deception designed to harm the president, which is libel.

    Not one suit. Not two. Thousands of them.

    Without that (or an equally grand counterattack) Trump is done.

    However, a really good mass of suits could turn this disaster into a victory (for Trump and decent politics, not the loathsome white supremacists). The media have thrown caution pretty far to the wind, enough that they've put their very existence in jeopardy.

    “White Supremacists”. Just using that hysterical term shows you’ve swallowed the media’s lies.

    Isn’t one of the core “human rights” “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” which the “United the Right” protesters were doing and “those who oppose them” were specifically trying to block–with violence if necessary.

    After Spencer's press conference the day after Trump's election (where Spencer gave the Nazi salute), I suspected he was just an Agent Provocateur for the left.

    After Charlottesville, I am convinced. The other organizer, Jason Kessler, was a man of the left until a few months ago. Come on.

    Ask yourselves why in the aftermath of all this why everyone vaguely associated with the "Alt-Right" has gotten deplatformed (including staid outlets like Amren and Vdare) but Spencer keeps chugging along?

    Plus, he's gay as a picnic basket.

    Braxton

    Conspiracy Theory sewage. You have no evidence for your claims. Among other things the recent Alt Right “Port Huron” statement is not something a Agent Provovateur could conjure up in his head.

    Richard Spencer has made the Alt Right and the demographic transformation of the US the number one news story in the US.

    It wasn’t a Nazi salute..it was the Roman salute. I suspect you are on board the demographic extermination of The Historic Native Born White American Majority Working Class.

    Richard Spencer is an outspoken critic of the Neo-Nazi coup in the Ukraine and Nina Kouprianova, being that she is Russian, very likely lost uncles and great Uncles in battle with the invading Waffen SS Army…

    Spencer is the real deal…the White guys who played for Joe PATERNO are the pussies…

    • 24/7 in-app support is available to answer questions and address concerns. You always have the right to end your trip if you feel uncomfortable or disrespected.

    You’re right, Tiny!

    Thanks to your indefatigable efforts as Unz.com’s only Voice of Sanity, I have seen the light–and also have pulled down the statues of Henry Ford and Stonewall Jackson that used to occupy the peak of my roof!

    With my eyes now fully woke I went down to my state’s capital city. I saw as never before the poor people of color absolutely trembling in fear while the badwhites surrounded them!

    There was this time where this poor frail skinny black gal was defending herself against a rampaging mob…precisely because they were denying her any comestibles other than the snack she carried in her right arm. She looked as though she were going to faint away with fear and hunger at any moment!

    No, wait. Wrong vid.

    I just couldn’t imagine how she could go from day to day with all that fear, no money, no house, living in a crime ridden hell hole, all that persecution.

    And she was so shy–it was clear why her opinion was underrepresented. And when she dared whisper a peep, those whites shut her down!

    But you know what really haunts me? The terrible terrible ghetto conditions that she moved to in 2011 in order to hold body and soul together.

    http://www.city-data.com/zips/98506.html

    And all so she could struggle to support herself and her chihuahua on a mere $70,000 for nine months’ unsupervised work with no assessment of outcomes, plus benefits (health plan, paid vacation, paid sick leave, subsidized house and car insurance, subsidized parking, free mass transit, climate controlled environment, no heavy lifting, 24/7 police protection, state pension, deferred compensation plan). Surely she deserves at least $3.8 million in reparations each and every year!

    Plus she has to work in the middle of all those Lynchin’ Trees!

    Know what else? Prepare yourself, because this one is the biggest and worst, Tiny.

    She was torn from her family, put in chains belowdecks on this splintery wooden rack, and forced to stay there for the entire middle passage from Philadelphia to Olympia, WA.

    I was literally shaking when I learned that! She is being held in virtual slavery at The Evergreen State College!

  104. Worthy of an up post!!!

    From the Anti-H1B activist Prof. Norm Matloff’s blog

    A Trump-Related Suicide?

    https://normsaysno.wordpress.com/2017/08/18/a-trump-related-suicide/

    On Tuesday of this week, Alec Turner, a student at Gunn High School in Palo Alto, CA, took his own life.

    I first heard the news from a physician friend who is a community leader in the Bay Area. My friend indicated that Alec had been the victim of heavy bullying at school because he (Alec) supported Donald Trump. My friend is no fan of Trump but decried the dangerously polarized climate that we now find ourselves in as a nation, and that apparently resulted in tragedy in Palo Alto.

    Some echo chamber, dontcha think???

    Just Yesterday Prof Matloff spoke out against Paypal’s removing VDARE’s ability to have its readership contribute to it using PayPal.

    http://www.vdare.com/posts/dr-norm-matloff-what-with-cnn-misleading-us-and-paypal-exercising-questionable-censorship-staying-well-informed-is-getting-pretty-difficult

    By the way Prof Matloff, is a jew, and like probably most of his cisgendered HUWHITE male readership for that matter, a BernieBro lefty.

    But how long does Matloff’s goyim readership remain ineffectual Bernie Bros when they see that their politics is a dead end now that Tim Cook is hell bent on labeling all of them wreckers along with that already unemployed f’ing based programmer dude in a Trump hat???

    These days, we all know a million dollars doesn’t make someone a millionaire. In fact, a million dollars isn’t even an especially noteworthy lottery payout. Does anyone that has a clue about marginal tax rates and the time value of money even fantasize about winning a $1 million lottery? It has to be at least 5 to buy the basics …. upscale house, cars, vacations, a few years of living large.

    The only point being that $1 million is the absolute SMALLEST donation that could be announced by Apple. What if they had announced they were giving $785,000 to these groups?

    If you want to make a vacuous symbolic gesture, SPLC has Southern in its name and is for blacks and something for the Jews — tweet — and move on. Not even worth thinking about.

    And the fact that these are worthless groups that are endlessly annoying and hectoring? Its either irrelevant or if they gave it a second’s thought, a benefit.

    And I can promise you that the barely above minimum wage retail sales associates won’t be making large donations.

    The matching donations will likely end up being more important:

    We will also match two-for-one our employees’ donations
     
    Cook himself will probably personally donate more than $1 million in order to set the tone, matched by twice as much taken from Apple shareholders.

    For senior executives or those who want to be senior executives, failing to make a donation will be like removing your name from the list for promotion, important projects, stock awards and other bonuses.

    Also, rather than receive one big one-time donation from Apple, the organizations prefer to establish contacts with multiple donors each of whom they can solicit annually going forward for years to come.

    Gotta hand it to the ADL. They have access to the biggest base of contributors, rich American Jews, but are not content to rest on their laurels.

    One can imagine how this went down:

    I dunno ... I once had a windfall in the low six figures, and it satisfied most of my materialistic urges. I don't fantasize about having things anymore. But I'm a nerdy, miserly sperg, so I spent most of it on books and other boring crap.

    After the money was gone, it was immensely deflating to learn that the old axiom was true: You can't buy your way to happiness.

    When I was eighteen, I dreamed about having the things that I have now. I mean, I used to sit in class and daydream about having them. And am I any happier now than I was then? Not really. I don't get nearly as soul-crushingly depressed as I did in my high-school and college years, but I rarely feel especially glad to be alive.

    Then again, I have gained a vastly superior understanding of myself and of the world as a whole, and I do derive some satisfaction from having solved many of the mysteries that once perplexed me. I draw a certain comfort from knowing that life, despite its seeming randomness, does have certain rhythms to which one can become attuned. There is order underlying the chaos. Not everything is subject to the whims of capricious Fate.

    But, yeah, a million is chump change these days.

Merely establishing that the defendant printed a harmful falsehood is not enough, nor is establishing that the defendant invented it out of thin air in the absence of any supporting evidence, nor that they unreasonably or nonsensically interpreted the evidence; public figures must prove the defendant knew of definitive proof that it was false before printing it.

    The Charlottesville rally was called “unite the right” – for this exact reason.
     
    Correct. I'm good with the non-ironic Nazis and the DNA based white nationalists. I'm convinced that we need big tent.

    The question is, as an American Catholic, are they good with me? It's a serious question.

    Richard Spencer, the last time I read anything of this thoughts, appeared to be holding Donald Trump in semi-contempt. I don't see how a man who is in position of power, to influence culture and real policies in the direction Spencer would like to go, is worthy of any contempt. Disagree, perhaps. Discuss, perhaps. Contempt? That's a problem.

    I like to believe it's getting better, but there are quarters of the alt-white that seem to have nothing but pure contempt for anything Christianity. By the gods (wink, wink, nudge, nudge - we know they aren't any), we're going to have our gay marriage and throw off all those stupid social rules that held us back..or perhaps made us great for 1500+ years, if one is a little fairer with history.

    We cannot unite if people like me, a Catholic willing to overcome the social barrier, (and yes even Donald Trump might give white nationalists a fair hearing if they offer respect for his views), is part of "the problem". Is an atheist white nationalist willing to at least drop their support for gay marriage (ie, just assent to putting homosexuality back in cultural closet and/or not fight about it)? I'm not asking to go church or put sodomy laws back in place, just respect that there's at least historical precedence behind worries over homosexuality.

    Can I get the non-ironic Nazi to please at least not show up with swastika on the "Unite the Right" event? It's a symbol foriegn to Western Culture, except in a context that's all bad from the American POV. Can part of the discipline of uniting be show up in Western clothes of today? (Could I even get a tie??? (Wow.)) Maybe positive Western symbols like St. George's cross, etc, if you insist on big flags? Right now an American flag is more than enough to cause melt downs in certain quarters. Who needs a Nazi flag?

    We need discipline from everyone on our side. We cannot unify behind "diversity". That's the other side. We will fail anyway if people supposedly united for a cause cannot even dress like there's something at stake.

    I’m good with the non-ironic Nazis and the DNA based white nationalists.

    Don’t be.

    Doesn’t do much good to “shoot right” or pay them any more attention than they deserve, but there is nothing good about them. Anti-anti-white is good enough, no reason to get carried away.

    There was nothing good about tax collectors (mafia types back then) and prostitutes and Jesus talked with them too. It seemed He had a bit more hope for their salvation than the Pharisees or the Sadducees for that matter.

    At any rate, they are human and entitled to a POV. Making a human not human because "Badthink" is not helpful and usually really more about a class difference than anything. There's no functional difference between a Nazi LARPer (low class) and transgender (oddly high class now). Both are easing their pain through fantasy.

    That said, the rest of my post was obviously saying "Reform, because the Nazi BS not useful in the least". I feel the same way about white DNA atheists. Spencer is not useful or competent, in part because he's is dedicated to supplying bicycles for every fish. Progress! Tomorrow! Sorry, Mr. Spencer, they're running low on old fashioned fresh water, as much you might not like that.

    What I find odd is that here in Britain the business and financial elite are still right wing, often very right wing, although I do note the baleful influence of the US tech and finance industry leaking in. Why is this, the stronger influence of the immigrant Jewish population from Eastern Europe, lack of the old aristocracy, not as extensive a system of private schools and the reactionary attitudes they instill?

    I don’t see that myself. The business and financial elite are pro-business, yes, but not right wing. The Conservative Party is just a more pro-business version of the Labour Party, with slightly fewer of its pathologies. But the financial elite – well, take a look at the Economist and the Financial Times, in lockstep with the invade the world and invite the world agenda.

    These people would do – and have done – terrible long-term damage to the UK, in the interests of getting short term cheap labour and a few years profits. Inviting people from the Caribbean to work in the NHS and from Pakistan to work in mills and foundries has turned out to be a very expensive option. Cheap labour is damn expensive.

    (I’ll make an exception for that fine Wetherspoons chap, but I don’t see any “out” very right-wing businesspeople – it’s bad for business these days.)

    Thanks to the current law having been written by Democrat media industry lobbyists, it’s as near as makes no difference impossible for a “public figure” to win a defamation suit. Merely establishing that the defendant printed a harmful falsehood is not enough, nor is establishing that the defendant invented it out of thin air in the absence of any supporting evidence, nor that they unreasonably or nonsensically interpreted the evidence; public figures must prove the defendant knew of definitive proof that it was false before printing it.

    Like them or not, non-ironic nazis are part of "the right". The enemy won't stop once they are done with the Anglins and the NSMs, they will immediately move the crosshairs left onto the next most extreme group.

    “…non-ironic nazis are part of ‘the right’…”

    Don’t be a fool, my friend.

    The nazis, first & foremost, despised the Slavs, planned to exterminate &/or enslave them, and gave it their best try. Compared to what the nazis did to the people of Russia, the holocaust was a sideshow.

    The nazis were objectively anti-white.

    But they are not a smart or useful part of the right. They don't add anything of value. In fact they subtract from any movement they are associated with. Take for example, this recent dust-up. Alt-right ideas have actually been gaining some traction and currency in public debate. It's possible to convince normies with the kind of arguments one sees here, or at V-dare, or even at alt-rightier websites (apart from their comment sections). But a few idiots waving swastikas can erase all those gains.

    To paraphrase John Lennon: If you go carrying pictures of Chancellor 'Dolph, you ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow.

    Please hear this from a Reaganite conservative. These organisations need to strive because they expose those Nazis and white supremacists who for whatever reason, jobs, career, or shame, choose to remain in the closet or perhaps they are too cowardly to come out into the open. Incidentally, 'white nationalism' is a preposterous term since when in history were whites as a whole ever a nation? If you look at contemporary America, a third generation American of Lebanese christian heritage will almost certainly pass off (and be socially accepted) as white especially if they have anglicized their name. A Hispanic on the other hand is usually regarded as non white even though they are often of Spanish heritage. Just take a close look at Jared Taylor, the granddaddy of contemporary white nationalism (Sic). Look again! You see, the guy has Amerindian blood and if you didn't notice, you need to change your glasses.

    I agree SPLC is wrong in some of their classification -they have incorrectly classified some fringe religious groups as hate groups simply because the later have 'robust' views on sexual orientation based on their religious beliefs. But no organisation is perfect.

    All genuine conservatives should shout and regularly re-emphasize that racialism, prejudice and any form of ethno-nationalism has no place in contemporary american conservative discourse. These extremists get their inspiration from Nazi Germany, European Fascism, the heritage of southern segregation and from apartheid South Africa while we genuine conservatives believe in free market, small state, minimum regulation, low taxation, equality of opportunity, private property and a globalization which is inclusive and welcoming. America has been made 'Great Again' throughout its history by productive, risk taking, high quality immigrants of all backgrounds. The biggest motherfucker currently barricading himself in the White House will play no role in making 'America Great Again'.

    “…we genuine conservatives believe in free market, small state…”

    They are calling people Nazis in Virginia. I’m from Virginia and I am not a Nazi. I am however a race realist which some confound with Nazism. Lets look at a few of the characteristics of Nazis – historical and American bred – and then race realism.

    I grew up in Arlington Virginia. For a time that was the center of Nazism in American. We had George Lincoln Rockwell running the American Nazi Party in a run down old house a block from my high school (Washington Lee). Everyone I knew considered them to be clowns. They were a bunch of low IQ stooges. Their only contribution to society was they were an easy topic for term papers. The year I graduated (1960) it seemed as if every kid in school wrote his term paper of Rockwell and our local Nazis. A couple years later when I was in California I heard that some other Nazi shot him. No great loss.

    I imagine someone is claiming now to be head of American Nazis, but no one since Rockwell has ever been as famous. I follow public events but I have no idea who is the nation’s top Nazi anymore that I know who is head KKK man either. These people are fringe elements without power or influence.

    Characteristics of a Nazi:

    They hate Jews. They hate homosexuals and transsexuals. They hate blacks.

    Characteristics of a Race Realist:

    They recognize that Ashkenazi Jews are very smart. They don’t give a damn about Gays or transsexuals. They recognize that blacks cause most of the social problems in America. Blacks are violent and criminal out of all proportion to their contribution to the total population. They also do poorly in school and are less employable. Their mere presence destroys neighborhoods.

    American Nazis hate Jews largely because that’s what expected of them from the original European Nazis. Some have wild theories about how Jews are responsible for slavery and warfare, but real Jew hatred has never caught on in America. Why to Nazis hate gays? I don’t know. Why does anyone hate gays.

    I’m straight and the idea of homosexual sex revolts me. So I just avoid it. I have known many gay men (I lived in San Francisco near the Castro) and I have supervised a number of gay men. I’ll tell you a secret – gay men make excellent subordinates. They do their work and don’t cause trouble. They tend to make more money that heterosexuals and cause less crime. And of course no one rehabilitates a failing neighborhood like a bunch of gay guys. In all these characteristics they are the polar opposite of blacks. I imagine the same thing is true for transsexuals. But trannies are very rare. I’ve never supervised one.

    What is my stance on transsexuals? I don’t have one. Transsexualism is too rare. You have to think about homosexuals because you are going to meet them at work and at play. Just as you need to have a policy on door to door salesmen or evangelists who come calling. But you may never meet a transsexual in a whole lifetime.

    Pay closer attention to homosexuals. You're seeing the surface, not what's underneath. The drug use, the early death via disease, the mental problems, the almost suicidal despair. I can hear it sometimes even in upbeat characters like Milo. They are into superficialities and work to hide the pain. I remember distinctly listening to a gay guy saying about attending Burning Man that it was the only place he felt "free". That's so sadly pathetic I don't even where to start.

    Homosexuals, in the end, destablize society because they not part of it or it's future. They're carrying around too much of their own pain to really help. Yes, blacks are violent and have falling down shacks. But what you see is what you get with them. No perfect solutions, but a good police force helps, unlike homosexuality, where the danger is below it's surface.

    When people hate gays, it's because they hate a reflection of it's soul crushing disorder in their lives. They hate being reminded there's something about them that goes against the natural order of the world because it so easy to see it in homosexuals.

    What is my stance on transsexuals? I don’t have one. Transsexualism is too rare. You have to think about homosexuals because you are going to meet them at work and at play.
     
    Gender dysphoria, like homosexuality is a disease of the mind. Noting that hemophilia is rare does not mean suspending judgement on it as a disease, a disorder.

    If I told you, as a short, brown haired lady, that I really was a tall, blonde Swede and tried to learn Swedish and get modeling jobs, I think you'd see the problem and the mental illness. It's the same if I told I was really a man.

In almost all contemporary nations, therefore – in direct proportion to the degree to which they act up nationalistically – the literary obscenity of leading the Jews to slaughter as scapegoats of every conceivable public and internal misfortune is spreading.”

    The left has been in an absolute frenzy in recent days, and I think there’s more going on than meets the eye. It looks to me like the real problem is Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and her IT guy. I doubt that Wasserman-Schultz is worried about the conservatives. I think her real fear is about what the Bernie people might do if they discover the extent to which she rigged the primaries in Hillary Clinton’s favor, only to see Clinton lose to Trump anyway. The far-left is never going to forgive Wasserman-Schultz, Clinton, or the Democratic party elders for that, because they’re convinced Bernie could have won.

    If proof comes out that Wasserman-Schultz rigged the Democratic primaries, the Bernie people may rise up and destroy the super-delegate system, and that will be the end of traditional Clinton-style Democratic party politics as usual. The last remaining bastion of Democratic centrisim will disappear, and the party will end up in the hand of the extreme left, who will go completely crazy with identity politics and destroy the Democrats as a national party that’s competitive in elections.

    These days, we all know a million dollars doesn't make someone a millionaire. In fact, a million dollars isn't even an especially noteworthy lottery payout. Does anyone that has a clue about marginal tax rates and the time value of money even fantasize about winning a $1 million lottery? It has to be at least 5 to buy the basics .... upscale house, cars, vacations, a few years of living large.

    The only point being that $1 million is the absolute SMALLEST donation that could be announced by Apple. What if they had announced they were giving $785,000 to these groups?

    If you want to make a vacuous symbolic gesture, SPLC has Southern in its name and is for blacks and something for the Jews -- tweet -- and move on. Not even worth thinking about.

    And the fact that these are worthless groups that are endlessly annoying and hectoring? Its either irrelevant or if they gave it a second's thought, a benefit.

    And I can promise you that the barely above minimum wage retail sales associates won't be making large donations.

    $1 million is the absolute SMALLEST donation that could be announced by Apple

    The matching donations will likely end up being more important:

    We will also match two-for-one our employees’ donations

    Cook himself will probably personally donate more than $1 million in order to set the tone, matched by twice as much taken from Apple shareholders.

    For senior executives or those who want to be senior executives, failing to make a donation will be like removing your name from the list for promotion, important projects, stock awards and other bonuses.

    Also, rather than receive one big one-time donation from Apple, the organizations prefer to establish contacts with multiple donors each of whom they can solicit annually going forward for years to come.

    Gotta hand it to the ADL. They have access to the biggest base of contributors, rich American Jews, but are not content to rest on their laurels.

    One can imagine how this went down:

    MALE MODEL: Hi, Mr. Cook. I’ve been sent by the ADL. Thanks for agreeing to meet with me.

    Characteristics of a Nazi:

    They hate Jews. They hate homosexuals and transsexuals. They hate blacks.

    Characteristics of a Race Realist:

    They recognize that Ashkenazi Jews are very smart. They don't give a damn about Gays or transsexuals. They recognize that blacks cause most of the social problems in America. Blacks are violent and criminal out of all proportion to their contribution to the total population. They also do poorly in school and are less employable. Their mere presence destroys neighborhoods.

    American Nazis hate Jews largely because that's what expected of them from the original European Nazis. Some have wild theories about how Jews are responsible for slavery and warfare, but real Jew hatred has never caught on in America. Why to Nazis hate gays? I don't know. Why does anyone hate gays.

    I'm straight and the idea of homosexual sex revolts me. So I just avoid it. I have known many gay men (I lived in San Francisco near the Castro) and I have supervised a number of gay men. I'll tell you a secret - gay men make excellent subordinates. They do their work and don't cause trouble. They tend to make more money that heterosexuals and cause less crime. And of course no one rehabilitates a failing neighborhood like a bunch of gay guys. In all these characteristics they are the polar opposite of blacks. I imagine the same thing is true for transsexuals. But trannies are very rare. I've never supervised one.

    What is my stance on transsexuals? I don't have one. Transsexualism is too rare. You have to think about homosexuals because you are going to meet them at work and at play. Just as you need to have a policy on door to door salesmen or evangelists who come calling. But you may never meet a transsexual in a whole lifetime.

    They do their work and don’t cause trouble. They tend to make more money that heterosexuals and cause less crime. And of course no one rehabilitates a failing neighborhood like a bunch of gay guys.

    Pay closer attention to homosexuals. You’re seeing the surface, not what’s underneath. The drug use, the early death via disease, the mental problems, the almost suicidal despair. I can hear it sometimes even in upbeat characters like Milo. They are into superficialities and work to hide the pain. I remember distinctly listening to a gay guy saying about attending Burning Man that it was the only place he felt “free”. That’s so sadly pathetic I don’t even where to start.

    Homosexuals, in the end, destablize society because they not part of it or it’s future. They’re carrying around too much of their own pain to really help. Yes, blacks are violent and have falling down shacks. But what you see is what you get with them. No perfect solutions, but a good police force helps, unlike homosexuality, where the danger is below it’s surface.

    When people hate gays, it’s because they hate a reflection of it’s soul crushing disorder in their lives. They hate being reminded there’s something about them that goes against the natural order of the world because it so easy to see it in homosexuals.

    What is my stance on transsexuals? I don’t have one. Transsexualism is too rare. You have to think about homosexuals because you are going to meet them at work and at play.

    Gender dysphoria, like homosexuality is a disease of the mind. Noting that hemophilia is rare does not mean suspending judgement on it as a disease, a disorder.

    If I told you, as a short, brown haired lady, that I really was a tall, blonde Swede and tried to learn Swedish and get modeling jobs, I think you’d see the problem and the mental illness. It’s the same if I told I was really a man.

    I don't approve of homosexuality per se - I just tolerate it. Personally I think that homosexuality is a disease. It's hard to accept modern medical science and biology and come to any other conclusion. If you think Darwin was right you should believe that homosexuality is a disease. Of course if you believe in creationism than all bets are off.

    We know that male homosexuality is associated with two nuclei in the hypothalamus. This has been known for about twenty years but research into this area seems to be suppressed - presumably by the gays.

    Transgenderism is a simple birth defect rather like a hare lip. Bruce Jenner as a fetus got an initial shot of testosterone. This was a consequence of having a Y chromosome. This first shot caused him to grow a penis. Subsequent shots of testosterone caused other changes that made him look and act like a man. But somewhere along the way he missed on of the programmed steps and he grew up to look like a man but 'feel' like a woman.

    This isn't a serious social problem because it only occurs at the rate of spontaneous mutation. Homosexuality is much more common probably because it is caused by a pathogen in the environment. I have long suspected it was caused by the toxoplasma parasite.

    Thanks to the current law having been written by Democrat media industry lobbyists, it’s as near as makes no difference impossible for a “public figure” to win a defamation suit. Merely establishing that the defendant printed a harmful falsehood is not enough, nor is establishing that the defendant invented it out of thin air in the absence of any supporting evidence, nor that they unreasonably or nonsensically interpreted the evidence; public figures must prove the defendant knew of definitive proof that it was false before printing it.
     
    Where did that come from? That wasn't the law last time I did a defamation case.

    They are calling people Nazis in Virginia. I'm from Virginia and I am not a Nazi. I am however a race realist which some confound with Nazism. Lets look at a few of the characteristics of Nazis - historical and American bred - and then race realism.

    I grew up in Arlington Virginia. For a time that was the center of Nazism in American. We had George Lincoln Rockwell running the American Nazi Party in a run down old house a block from my high school (Washington Lee). Everyone I knew considered them to be clowns. They were a bunch of low IQ stooges. Their only contribution to society was they were an easy topic for term papers. The year I graduated (1960) it seemed as if every kid in school wrote his term paper of Rockwell and our local Nazis. A couple years later when I was in California I heard that some other Nazi shot him. No great loss.

    I imagine someone is claiming now to be head of American Nazis, but no one since Rockwell has ever been as famous. I follow public events but I have no idea who is the nation's top Nazi anymore that I know who is head KKK man either. These people are fringe elements without power or influence.

    I know you're exaggerating for effect, but I must disagree: one good idea Apple has had since Jobs died is the AirPods wireless headphones. They are very cleverly designed, and work delightfully well, much better than any wireless headphones I have ever tried. I'm serious!

    It’s especialñy neat how they (and Apple, Inc.’s other, wired earbuds) are so large they are painful for petite women and children to use; they are downright awesome the way they easily fall out of a person’s ears, are easily, lost, and must be replaced for hundreds of dollars – nothing like the thousands of much more afforable other models available which easily and comfortably fit over one’s ears, are waterproof, are connected by an unobtrusive wire behind one’s neck, and do not employ propritary technology incompatible with 802.11 standards – those things suck!

    Apple [APPL] is the new IBM or Digital Equipment Corp. I mean that Apple, similar to the once mighty IBM or DEC, is in long term decline.

    Apple's market share in laptop and desktop computers is dwindling to single digits. Apple is only a small player in cloud services and corporate/institutional computing.

    Apple is becoming a one product company. Apple = iPhones. Long term, I predict that Android phones will outsell iPhones in China, India, and elsewhere. iPhones are too expensive for the erstwhile 3td world.

    Apple wants to become a producer of movies and TV content? That's Tim Cook's big idea. I'm sure APPL will be extremely successful as a content producer. Oh yeah.

    These days, we all know a million dollars doesn't make someone a millionaire. In fact, a million dollars isn't even an especially noteworthy lottery payout. Does anyone that has a clue about marginal tax rates and the time value of money even fantasize about winning a $1 million lottery? It has to be at least 5 to buy the basics .... upscale house, cars, vacations, a few years of living large.

    The only point being that $1 million is the absolute SMALLEST donation that could be announced by Apple. What if they had announced they were giving $785,000 to these groups?

    If you want to make a vacuous symbolic gesture, SPLC has Southern in its name and is for blacks and something for the Jews -- tweet -- and move on. Not even worth thinking about.

    And the fact that these are worthless groups that are endlessly annoying and hectoring? Its either irrelevant or if they gave it a second's thought, a benefit.

    And I can promise you that the barely above minimum wage retail sales associates won't be making large donations.

    I dunno … I once had a windfall in the low six figures, and it satisfied most of my materialistic urges. I don’t fantasize about having things anymore. But I’m a nerdy, miserly sperg, so I spent most of it on books and other boring crap.

    After the money was gone, it was immensely deflating to learn that the old axiom was true: You can’t buy your way to happiness.

    When I was eighteen, I dreamed about having the things that I have now. I mean, I used to sit in class and daydream about having them. And am I any happier now than I was then? Not really. I don’t get nearly as soul-crushingly depressed as I did in my high-school and college years, but I rarely feel especially glad to be alive.

    Then again, I have gained a vastly superior understanding of myself and of the world as a whole, and I do derive some satisfaction from having solved many of the mysteries that once perplexed me. I draw a certain comfort from knowing that life, despite its seeming randomness, does have certain rhythms to which one can become attuned. There is order underlying the chaos. Not everything is subject to the whims of capricious Fate.

    But, yeah, a million is chump change these days.

It also resulted in the first felony conviction in the US under the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.[1] It was written by a graduate student at Cornell University, Robert Tappan Morris, and launched on November 2, 1988 from the computer systems of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    In practice, the Morris worm locking the Internet up when it did was probably a huge blessing as it made attention to security a much more substantial consideration. had it happened in 1995 it could nave set public Internet use back many years and bankrupted entire companies.


    McKusick and Allman do not seem to be virulently SJWish , but I'm a firm believer in knowing all the potential issues. In practice, there is probably no big advantage or disadvantage of FreeBSD vs. Linux or another BSD variant for general use. YOU are responsible for your own security and system administration should you choose this.

    If you just want to browse the web, send and receive email, and do the usual other peecee stuff any of these will work fine and as long as you have reasonably common hardware putting the DVD in the drive and clicking the defaults will give you a usable system. If you are going to run a business on these systems you had better know what you are doing or hire someone who does.

    Most people consider the roughly fifty dollar fee Microsoft charges for Windows to be worth it vs. using any other OS, as evidenced by Windows' 96% and growing market share for desktops.

    Apple [APPL] is the new IBM or Digital Equipment Corp. I mean that Apple, similar to the once mighty IBM or DEC, is in long term decline.

    Apple’s market share in laptop and desktop computers is dwindling to single digits. Apple is only a small player in cloud services and corporate/institutional computing.

    Apple is becoming a one product company. Apple = iPhones. Long term, I predict that Android phones will outsell iPhones in China, India, and elsewhere. iPhones are too expensive for the erstwhile 3td world.

    Apple wants to become a producer of movies and TV content? That’s Tim Cook’s big idea. I’m sure APPL will be extremely successful as a content producer. Oh yeah.

    OK, don’t let me forget! There’s the iWatch, available in a number of fashion colors. Everybody’s gonna want one.

  169. Maybe Sony is a better forerunner of Apple’s future. Sony once had several best -selling consumer product lines. Now Sony has only one successful item, the Playstation game box.

    I’ll leave to Steve or somebody else to opine on Sony’s move into the movie business.

    They do their work and don’t cause trouble. They tend to make more money that heterosexuals and cause less crime. And of course no one rehabilitates a failing neighborhood like a bunch of gay guys.
     
    Pay closer attention to homosexuals. You're seeing the surface, not what's underneath. The drug use, the early death via disease, the mental problems, the almost suicidal despair. I can hear it sometimes even in upbeat characters like Milo. They are into superficialities and work to hide the pain. I remember distinctly listening to a gay guy saying about attending Burning Man that it was the only place he felt "free". That's so sadly pathetic I don't even where to start.

    Homosexuals, in the end, destablize society because they not part of it or it's future. They're carrying around too much of their own pain to really help. Yes, blacks are violent and have falling down shacks. But what you see is what you get with them. No perfect solutions, but a good police force helps, unlike homosexuality, where the danger is below it's surface.

    When people hate gays, it's because they hate a reflection of it's soul crushing disorder in their lives. They hate being reminded there's something about them that goes against the natural order of the world because it so easy to see it in homosexuals.

    What is my stance on transsexuals? I don’t have one. Transsexualism is too rare. You have to think about homosexuals because you are going to meet them at work and at play.
     
    Gender dysphoria, like homosexuality is a disease of the mind. Noting that hemophilia is rare does not mean suspending judgement on it as a disease, a disorder.

    If I told you, as a short, brown haired lady, that I really was a tall, blonde Swede and tried to learn Swedish and get modeling jobs, I think you'd see the problem and the mental illness. It's the same if I told I was really a man.

    I don’t approve of homosexuality per se – I just tolerate it. Personally I think that homosexuality is a disease. It’s hard to accept modern medical science and biology and come to any other conclusion. If you think Darwin was right you should believe that homosexuality is a disease. Of course if you believe in creationism than all bets are off.

    We know that male homosexuality is associated with two nuclei in the hypothalamus. This has been known for about twenty years but research into this area seems to be suppressed – presumably by the gays.

    Transgenderism is a simple birth defect rather like a hare lip. Bruce Jenner as a fetus got an initial shot of testosterone. This was a consequence of having a Y chromosome. This first shot caused him to grow a penis. Subsequent shots of testosterone caused other changes that made him look and act like a man. But somewhere along the way he missed on of the programmed steps and he grew up to look like a man but ‘feel’ like a woman.

    This isn’t a serious social problem because it only occurs at the rate of spontaneous mutation. Homosexuality is much more common probably because it is caused by a pathogen in the environment. I have long suspected it was caused by the toxoplasma parasite.

    Doesn’t do much good to “shoot right” or pay them any more attention than they deserve, but there is nothing good about them
     
    There was nothing good about tax collectors (mafia types back then) and prostitutes and Jesus talked with them too. It seemed He had a bit more hope for their salvation than the Pharisees or the Sadducees for that matter.

    At any rate, they are human and entitled to a POV. Making a human not human because "Badthink" is not helpful and usually really more about a class difference than anything. There's no functional difference between a Nazi LARPer (low class) and transgender (oddly high class now). Both are easing their pain through fantasy.

    That said, the rest of my post was obviously saying "Reform, because the Nazi BS not useful in the least". I feel the same way about white DNA atheists. Spencer is not useful or competent, in part because he's is dedicated to supplying bicycles for every fish. Progress! Tomorrow! Sorry, Mr. Spencer, they're running low on old fashioned fresh water, as much you might not like that.

    Exactly.

    He didn’t say “I’m good with sinners and tax collectors” he said repent and sin no more.

    One of Frank's black employees is thought to have done the deed.

    That’s what defenders of Frank say; whether they really believe it or not is another matter. Many people, including the jury who convicted him, believed Frank to be guilty of the crime.

    It's especialñy neat how they (and Apple, Inc.'s other, wired earbuds) are so large they are painful for petite women and children to use; they are downright awesome the way they easily fall out of a person's ears, are easily, lost, and must be replaced for hundreds of dollars – nothing like the thousands of much more afforable other models available which easily and comfortably fit over one's ears, are waterproof, are connected by an unobtrusive wire behind one's neck, and do not employ propritary technology incompatible with 802.11 standards – those things suck!

    Have you tried the Airpods? I was lucky to have been given a pair, following some rave reviews by two bloggers I trust (John Gruber and Ben Thompson). It may be my white male big-eared privilege speaking, but I promise you that, for me at least, they are very nice, and I am now raving too.

    I have purchased other bluetooth earphones of the kinds that you mention, and they didn’t work anywhere nearly as seamlessly for charging, carrying around, doing sports, switching between devices (iOS/Android/Windows), looking nice, and generally staying out of my way and just working.
