Wow, Tucker Carlson really hit a nerve by asking simple, obvious questions about the recent dogma that Diversity Is What Unifies America Ever Since Pilgrim Father Emma Lazarus Laid “the moral and cultural foundations of the country” on Plymouth Rock.

Denying talented people opportunities for service on the basis of their race (white & increasingly Asian) and their ethnicity (nonHispanic) is called affirmative action.

I realize racial/ethnic quotas only go back to late 1960s, but maybe someday you’ll notice their existence.

    If I’m remembering correctly, the whole diversity mania came out of a High Nine case where the importance of black military officers was important to enhance troop solidarity and reduce racial tension. As seems to so often be the case, we’re stretching an American black/white racial divide thing to cover all sorts of unintended issues.

    Nope, it was the 1978 Bakke decision on the University of California Medical School's admissions policies. Nixon-appointee Lewis Powell rejected past discrimination/collective punishment rationales for racial preference but found a "compelling state interest"--i.e., one strong enough to overcome even explicit Constitutional provisions (such as Equal Protection)--in "diversity." It has ruled ever since.

    For an interesting follow-up on the career trajectory of the Black applicant admitted in Bakke's place, see Coloring the News by William McGowan.

    "In America we don’t deny talented people opportunities for public service on the basis of ethnic or religious status ... an enormous source of national strength."

    Actually, Matty, the America that you pander to, namely our rulers in academia, government, and large corporations, does nothing but deny opportunities to anyone who dissents from the Globalist diversity Religion....

    The 'Diversity is Our Strength' notion is an example of what I call Antithesis Assertion.

    Another common example is "Black Lives Matter". Obviously this isn't true. All the marches and demonstration are over the fact that blacks truly don't matter much. Last weekend dozens of young blacks shot each other in Chicago and many other black neighborhoods. Few if any of these murders made it into the local papers and none onto cable TV. No one seems to care if blacks shoot each other. Blacks are also angry because they think that they think the police shoot them casually. Maybe they do. So the protesters assert the antithesis of what they believe to be true.

    An earlier protest motto was "Black is Beautiful". This slogan was invented to combat the common perception that black was ugly. Ugly in behavior, ugly in demeanor and ugly in facial features. It is well known from many surveys that virtually all men find black women the least attractive women of any of the races. Some times the survey responders will find Scandinavian blonds the prettiest. Other times Polynesian girls are favored. African women it seems always come in last. Black women are angry about this.

    A quasi-scientific idea in the same vein is the meme "Race is a Social Construct" often said as " Race is JUST a Social Construct". This asserts that race isn't a biologically valid idea at all. Black people in fact believe in race to a great degree. They organize their lives around race the way that whites seldom do. They call each other "brother". They call members of their race who do not hold what they think of as black values - "Race Traitors" . Obama had to endure the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton charge that he was not black enough.

    As for the biology, most widespread mammal species have races. Gorillas have two and chimps have three. Those are our closest relatives. How could it be that humans have none? This is a kind of crypto-religious Victorian idea similar to the Great Chain of Being. Mankind is not like lesser animals.

    The Democratic party seems to be organizing around race. Race is now very important to them so they assert its antithesis - Race is a Social Construct. So the those most concerned about race assert the antithesis that the races aren't real.

    , @Coemgen
    "Diversity" is an invention used to denote and justify "divide" and ensuing "conquer."

    Think about it: why is "diversity" so important for the "Western World" but it's not important for the entire world (as it becomes less diverse due to there being proportionately [absolutely?] fewer whites)?

    Why is this the case? Why does diversity only mean that western countries must be divided racially, ethnically, etc?

    That is, what is the benefit of dividing and conquering the "West?"

    To the Left, exotic restaurants are more important than ESL classes bankrupting public schools or emergency rooms being overrun treating illegals for a cold or highways clogged with uninsured unlicensed and often drunk drivers. The elite get cheap stuff and “diverse” choices and the costs are socialized. What happens in some shithole like Pakistan has nothing to do with any of that.

    Again, after 9/11 figured the flow of illegals and Middle Eastern people would come to a halt. Instead it exploded. Yet Uniparty Establishment scum Bush Jr. and Obama get treated like rock stars . In a more serious time they’d end up like Mussolini.

    Since linking up with Klein at Vox, Yglesias has become a full time associate in the Cult of Moloch.

    You're absolutely right to point out the material benefits to some individuals of privatising the profits and socialising the costs but there's more to it here.

    Yglesias would not sacrifice his own child to Moloch but he would celebrate his own young son's chemical castration. Moloch demands it.

    However, seeing how the ratings are rock-solid and nobody anywhere is pinning for Bill O'Reilly, may we at least hope for pragmatism from the Murdoch Kidz? This is the part where you stay the course and, rather than flinch and draw up apologetic press releases every time the bad guys do their worst, you buckle your chinstraps and return fire. Disproportionately.

    I think with people like Yglesias (whoever he is) it works like this:

    There’s no racism because there are no signs White Guys Not Wanted. Nobody is being denied, other people are just given preference. Different thing.

    Possibly another aspect of the Super Worf hypothesis. There is no handy word for “effectively denying somebody something by putting others ahead of them”, so it doesn’t occur to him.

    Pretty darn sure i know what the "moral and cultural foundations of the country" are. Christianity, Angl0-Saxon culture, freedom--the traditional rights of Englishmen--and the right to govern ourselves as opposed to being ordered about by the dictats of pompous a*holes like ... um ... Matty Yeglesias.

    But those do not seem to be the "moral and cultural foundations" Matty is worried about.

    Don't we all know the type? They show up to the party after all the heavy lifting has been done, and start acting like they own the joint.

    ~~~

    But I'm broad minded and not interested in making everyone else hew to our actual moral and cultural foundations.

    So there's a real simple solution here:

    Matty and his Pakistani economist, and Colin Kaepernick and BLM and "abolish ICE" and illegal alliens and ... pretty much everyone offended by Tucker Carlons can have their own nation. And Those of us who enjoy living with the actual "moral and cultural foundation" of America can have ours.

    How come i know Matty won't go for this?

  8. Can’t tell of Yggy the Nepot is being dishonest or is just plain stupid (likely both) but in his telling of DOGS (Diversity is Our Greatest Strength), Mian’s merit as an economist is irrelevant – the most important thing is that there be a proportion of Ahmadiyyan Muslims on the economic council whether they are good economists or not. Their central contribution is their Ahmadiyyan-ness, and their economic insight is collateral.

    It’s also a subtle bit of irony here that his example is one of criticizing Islamic religious dogma while assiduously refusing to permit criticism of his own religious dogma. It’s all “lie back and think of the delicious tacos” posturing.

    Funny how he never mentions affirmative action. My guess is he played the Latino card on his Harvard application. Sure, Harvard has separate doors for the children of the rich, famous, tribesman, etc., but letting him in was a real stretch.

    Matty, as we knew him back then, was an archetypal "sane liberal" of the technocrat/rationalist sort that could be (and/or tried to be) mistaken for a libertarian.

  19. If diversity were real — that there are inherent substantive differences between people based on their demographics — why can’t advocates name one difference? If it is the “differences” that are important, name one difference between blacks and whites, men and women, gay and straight. Not where these differences come from — “genetics”, “culture” etc., but an actual clinically substantiated difference.

    It shouldn’t be hard to find these differences. That is what scientific researchers do every day. Compare two groups of people to find out their differences. But the diversity scientists apparently have no time to discover what “diversity” exists. Could it be that this whole “diversity” scam is meant to cover up racial quotas? That institutions have been browbeaten and threatened with lawsuits because treating every individual equally might result in disparate success rates such as academic fields and athletics arenas such as the NBA, NFL, and NHL?

    Racial quotas are the choice of cowardly institutions because they possess a veneer of fairness. Proportionate success sounds fair. Institutions obtain litigation insurance at minimal cost to themselves, the insurance premiums are paid for with the civil rights of the poor saps discriminated against.

    The cult of diversity teeters on the brink of incoherence. The people who are inherently different (diverse) are supposed to achieve success at the same rate as if there were no differences between groups (equality). This “diversequality” makes no sense other than as a scam for institutions to cheat their way to “fairness” and get off the hook.

    Question “diversity”!

    I was brought up a Catholic, and part of our dogma was the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. That is, there is one God, but He's in three parts--Father, Son, and Holy Ghost--but it's all one. The three Persons are distinct, yet are one "substance, essence or nature." I coud never wrap my head around this idea or see exactly what the point of it was.

    Similarly, the doctrine of Holy Diversity states that we are all wonderfully diverse, but at the same time we are all the same. We have distinct identities based on our race, religion, or sexual identity, but we are also one unified whole (except for the Badwhite problem, for which some solution must finally be found).

There is a saying that to understand someone’s intentions, look at the results and infer the intention, don’t go by what they say. As you correctly point out their behavior is destroying the West- and they persist even after a century of examples around the world that leftism is destructive to countries that embrace it. The inference is that they want to do this.

    It’s worth screenshotting and rehosting the Yglesias tweets since he periodically deletes his entire Tweet archive. Without doing so, this post will make little sense to readers in late fall 2018 and beyond; will say “Tweet Unavailable” and contain commentary on Tweet Unavailable.

    I don't know about that. While Irish and Italian Catholics, for example, were permitted to maintain their own churches and civic organizations, people were expected to learn English and assimilate into the Anglo-American cultural mold (e.g. self-reliance and local gov't, rule of law and due process, natural rights, freedom of speech, voluntary associations enabled by a high degree of social trust, pride in American history and the founding, etc). Immigration was limited to white Europeans, overwhelmingly Christian, since it was believed (accurately, I think) that these populations would best be able to assimilate, and even so, immigration went through stops and starts. If there were no existing culture or people to assimilate into, these restrictions would not have existed.

  32. Tucker Carlson asked some good question in 2015, too:

    CARLSON: One of the real threats from ISIS we face domestically is immigrants to this country going back over to the Middle East to join ISIS and posing a real threat to us. Why is the United States government importing hundreds of thousands of potentially dangerous folks from that region, from Iraq, from Syria, from Somalia? Why are we doing that?. . .

    CARLSON: I’m saying that exact thing. Why would you do that? The United States has the pick of the world; people want to move here. Tens of millions of people want to move here. Yet we are almost perversely intentionally selecting people to move here who potentially pose a threat to us from countries where the ideology behind ISIS is common, is supported by a lot of the population, and we’re moving them to this country.

    And you’re not allowed to say anything about it. You’re somehow a bigot if you note that. Look at Europe. Europe’s terrorism problems are the result of its immigration policies. That’s a really obvious lesson. It’s been going on for 50 years. We haven’t learned it. Why?

    If I'm remembering correctly, the whole diversity mania came out of a High Nine case where the importance of black military officers was important to enhance troop solidarity and reduce racial tension. As seems to so often be the case, we're stretching an American black/white racial divide thing to cover all sorts of unintended issues.

    Nope, it was the 1978 Bakke decision on the University of California Medical School’s admissions policies. Nixon-appointee Lewis Powell rejected past discrimination/collective punishment rationales for racial preference but found a “compelling state interest”–i.e., one strong enough to overcome even explicit Constitutional provisions (such as Equal Protection)–in “diversity.” It has ruled ever since.

    For an interesting follow-up on the career trajectory of the Black applicant admitted in Bakke’s place, see Coloring the News by William McGowan.

    he periodically deletes his entire Tweet archive

    Smart guy.

    When I was on Twitter I had a 50 tweet limit, the maximum that I would keep.

    There were also some Twitter archiving sites that I had to go to in order to delete old archives. The process was to make my feed private, force a recrawl, then make it public again.

    There use to be sites that archived politician’s deleted tweets, but Twitter shut them down three years ago. But if you’re high enough profile, people will just screenshot you.

    The problem with old social media and old blog posts is not just that you might have said something that now seems “problematic,” but also over the course of thousands of posts you reveal an enormous amount of personal information in bits and pieces that you may have forgotten about, but a dedicated autistic Redditor enemy with a copy of Blue Crab or some other crawler can read and put together into quite a dossier.

    These days a lot of web pages are not even indexed by Google, so there is not a lot of point in keeping content up that is not currently getting traffic or is not even indexed.

    I remember the beginnings of Affirmative Action. I was one of the first ‘victims’ of the nonsense. In 1969, I was awarded a graduate position at a Michigan university – I worked hard to get it. I dreamed of getting a doctorate in my field and maybe teaching at the university level. But, before I could claim it, the head of my department told me that the department had been instructed by the Department of Education (before it was an independent agency) to withdraw my award and give it to a minority student – at that time it meant a Black student. Just like that, all my dreams were shot to hell.

    So, no, I dislike affirmative action as it violates the Constitution and, like slavery, it is an indignity that citizens should not have to endure. Like slavery, it has the blessing of my government. Thus, I am a slave to my government when I can no longer seek a redress of grievance such as affirmative action.

    Hubbub, I've mentioned before that I'm sort of half-arsedly confident that affirmative action, the gamed 'n' tweaked version that favors White women, kept me from big-company sales and in pretty low-rent shit businesses where all the talent in the world won't get you income and stability. I cultivated work-arounds that have actually given me some disproportionate influence in my area. I'd've rather had a steady job with advancement opportunities.

    It's "uncomfortable" thinking that government and big corporations blocked me from making contributions in favor of bullshit "social justice" policies, but I don't know what else to think.

    You can choose not to have an Af Act. doctor but you cannot choose your air traffic controller.

    I think The Tuck should have brought up the idea of Henry Ford and the ‘virtuous circle.’ Henry Ford doubled the pay of his employees making the Model T so they could afford the product they manufactured. Society functions more smoothly when everyone gets a piece of the pie.

    “I’ve seen speech have real disastrous consequences. I am going through a divorce right now because of the way speech and politics and religion have worked out in my own marriage. So yes, I see intellectually, free speech. But personally, I see the deep pain. Like everyone, I see a problem in America and I don’t know a way around it.”

    “You don’t know,” says Carlson, “Well, I do know… You oughta let people say what they think and you shouldn’t punish them for that, period. That’s how I feel.”

    I am trying to listen. I am trying to understand. I want to understand. If I can figure out what happened to Tucker Carlson, how he went from successful magazine writer to contrarian journalist to raving Fox News host, I believe I will understand what happened to my country, my life even. What happened to make a rich white man the vox populi? How did I, a mom in the Midwest who can’t afford health care, become the humorless, censoring, liberal elite? How are the winners still insisting they are losers? What happened to this whole mess of a world? So I listen and listen. But I get no answers. Most of the quotes I get don’t make any sense.

    Great find! This woman sounds like a working-class white Dem who still hasn't gotten the message that her party hates her. First off, all the LOLs for her whole premise of divorcing her husband for his political views, then claiming that she is not a "humorless" or "censoring" liberal. She claims that "speech" has "disastrous consequences" - no, lady, your misguided loyalty to a political ideology that wants to replace you has consequences. And she probably can't afford health care because: 1) the middle class has been gutted by outsourcing and immigration, 2) she divorced her husband for trivial reasons (LOL again), and 3) NEITHER party has been able to deliver useful health care reform.

    This lady would probably start voting Republican if the GOPe would stop being corporate shills (and a little racial awareness wouldn't hurt either).

  60. The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80′s when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions – the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    Better now than never. And it's actually not too late. Hispanic and minority birth rates are cratering, and white births are still above 50%. Criminalizing abortion would be a huge mistake.

    All that is necessary is to bump up white birth rates through economic and cultural growth, a big task, but then also to cut off current immigration.

    Believe it or not, immigrants will also self deport if they no longer feel welcome in the USA.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80′s when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable.
     
    Back then it was a way of punishing the working class. When it started to disrupt the social order or lead to political outcomes of redistribution to people they eventually began to see them less as 'hard workers, what's the matter why can't you do a job I'd never do for your pay at half your pay?!' and more as 'parasites!'. It took a little while, but they eventually learned to feel the contempt they felt for the native working class through exposure. This can also be seen to some extent on the alt-right with most of them being former libertarians. Richard Spencer, for example, doesn't understand why British people have a problem with mass EU migration since he doesn't care about economic consequences and thinks of ethnicity purely in terms of race and doesn't care either would inequality.

    With the triumph of free-markets in the 80s and end of the Soviet Union the Overton window shifted and the centre-left in the West began to adopt the ideals of neoliberalism too. Identity politics took central place as the new Washington consensus and free trade laws effectively made non neoliberal politics impossible. However, the same lack of empathy that led old-school republicans to enjoy importing 'hard-working' immigrants also made them more immune to the religion of empathy that took hold of the left. (This process has varied in intensity, with Sweden and Denmark being at opposite ends of the spectrum. The new Danish Social Democrat leader recently made a pitch against immigration that wouldn't be out of place on iSteve and the Swedish Social Democrats are about to have the worst election of their history and be displaced as the largest party in parliament by the Swedish Democrats on the basis of their immigration policies.) The centre-left has become dominated by effectively bourgeois concerns. (Who cares if Obama didn't even try to regulate the banks, he ended 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'!)

    In essence the most pressing class issue in the Western world, immigration, became one only the right were able to address it and even then it often took a Canadian or Australian route of endorsing higher 'skilled' immigration that may turn out even worse for those societies long term and which just shifts the socio-economic hammering upstream to the middle class and threatens the election of a grasping alien elite much faster. If it took shape at all and wasn't more of a dog-whistle they made no effort to deal with.

    Now we have a weird situation where the Republican Party is advocating the most pro-working class policy of immigration restriction whilst the Democrats are at the point of advocating open borders in direct violation of their voters actual desires. (No ethnic group in the US isn't majority in favour of immigration restrictions)

    The problem is the Republican party is still filled with those Reaganists and won't stop advocating pro-corporate giveaways and don't tend to embrace Trump's new policies other than enforcing immigration restriction. (And then only for illegal immigrants) The political realignment will eventually change this but I don't see this having happened in time to save Trump from a Democrat majority in Congress in the second half of his first term.

    Legal and political restrictions on immigration do not radicalize Mestizos, who really don't feel one way or another about it, and just want to get along. They are the future majority of the US.

    That majority will bring with it a shift toward socialism and populism, as you see in South and Central America. It will not bring anti-white political action, because that is not something Mestizos want or care about at all. Keep fantasizing about it though, if you like.

    It's worth screenshotting and rehosting the Yglesias tweets since he periodically deletes his entire Tweet archive. Without doing so, this post will make little sense to readers in late fall 2018 and beyond; will say "Tweet Unavailable" and contain commentary on Tweet Unavailable.

    Here is Matthew Yglesias explaining his all-Tweet-deletion policy, July 28, 2018:


    Deleting tweets is a very sensible practice and there's no reason to spin weird conspiracy theories about why Glenn [Greenwald] would do it, but I do wish he'd apologize to me.
     
    [self-reply]:

    But really, I think Twitter should be ephemeral like conversation and not last forever like real articles.

    If you don't treat it that way it's no fun. Deleting is good.
     

    As of this writing, these tweets can still be found by a google search, cached, but they too have been deleted by Yglesias. This now -Tweet-orphan was originally a reply to the above.

With training courses on "white privilege" and "white fragility," and history classes being designed to attack Western Civ at every turn? With widespread media celebration over the coming white minority in this country? How about the pernicious lie that blacks are being targeted by police out of proportion to their enormous crime rate, how about that? How about the riots, the neighborhoods and schools and entire cities that blacks have rendered uninhabitable, which no white person is allowed to talk about? How about the knockout game? How about what has happened in Rhodesia and SA, countries that whites built? Or perhaps La Raza, or the other racial organizations that have popped up like mushrooms on every campus? People hate racism?! HAHAHA! What planet are you living on?

    And as for anti-Semitism, just watch what Islamic immigration has to offer. Europe has already seen the effects. Black anti-Semitism is famous (witness our black president palling around with Farrakhan, or Al Sharpton leading anti-Semitic riots in Crown Heights), and Hispanics aren't a whole lot better.

The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority.

    There were also some Twitter archiving sites that I had to go to in order to delete old archives. The process was to make my feed private, force a recrawl, then make it public again.

    There use to be sites that archived politician's deleted tweets, but Twitter shut them down three years ago. But if you're high enough profile, people will just screenshot you.

    The problem with old social media and old blog posts is not just that you might have said something that now seems "problematic," but also over the course of thousands of posts you reveal an enormous amount of personal information in bits and pieces that you may have forgotten about, but a dedicated autistic Redditor enemy with a copy of Blue Crab or some other crawler can read and put together into quite a dossier.

    These days a lot of web pages are not even indexed by Google, so there is not a lot of point in keeping content up that is not currently getting traffic or is not even indexed.

    The big Twitter archiving website was Topsy, which Apple acquired and shut down. I think they acquired it for its tech and staff.

    Topsy was a startup that made the most requested missing feature of Twitter: good searching. Twitter's search has improved, but it was really terrible back then, so Topsy and a few other websites popped up. Topsy let you navigate the content of individual Twitter accounts in various ways.

    These were useful website if you wanted to search Twitter, but annoying if you wanted to keep a low profile on Twitter. They had a really complex process that allowed you to delete stuff; I got the impression that they didn't want you to delete anything.

    Basically, you had to delete the stuff from Twitter, then set the Twitter account to private, then go to Topsy and trigger a recrawl of your account by Topsy. Topsy would replace its database of your tweets with what it just crawled, which was a blank, private account. Voila, no more data in Topsy.

    But then you had to set your account back to public and then the next tweet would instantly show up on Topsy, so you had to repeat this once a week or so.

    Today I am not aware of any successors to Topsy. Twitter has cracked down on websites that offer enhanced features, and they have cut off most licensees of "the firehose."

    I can't read Matty Yglwhatever without marveling at how a pottymouth halfwit can get into Harvard, graduate and become an important public intellectual millionaire just by making his last name Hispanic.

    millionaire

    Are you stupid? Matt and his wife both work and barely manage to afford a small condo in a gentrifying corner of DC. Part of the reason he spergs out so much about wanting cities to build as much housing as humanly possible is because he knows he’ll never afford an actual house in his ultra-expensive metro area.

    I can’t tell if this is real or sarcasm. At any rate Yglesias is listed as a co-founder of Vox. It’s now owned by Vox Media. Vox Media is a private company but it’s worth in excess of $1 billion. Yglesias is listed as one of 5 key executives by Bloomberg of Vox Media. He’s most certainly a millionaire.

    If Kevin Williamson can make $200k at National Review and Chris Cillizza is making $800k at CNN. You have to think Yglesias is getting paid a 6 figure salary for his executive roles alone plus whatever ownership stake he has in Vox Media.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80's when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    “The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority.”

    Rampant anti-white statements by members of the White Genocide Party are only serving to radicalize and unite whites against the White Genocide Party and the inevitable [sic] non-white majority. The midterms are gonna make your head splode, my thirsty incel invader. And, Come the Revolution, you still ain’t scoring any of that beautiful white quim, to whom you will be forever invisible.

    This is (part of) what is so infuriatingly foolish about Matt’s tribe. They believe they are brothers in arms with the ‘oppressed’ brown man and come the eradication of white gentiles they will be sitting around singing kumbaya with their brown brethren in utopia. They completely lack awareness of how they are far more privileged than the average white gentile and how brown folks don’t give 2 sh*ts about their claims of being oppressed.

    The reason that Jews survived for thousands of years as a sharply distinct group is that they sustained an intensive ingroup / outgroup consciousness by cultivating paranoia and hostility against gentile mainstream society. This became particularly important after Jewish emancipation and the secularization of most Jews, which removed an important anchor of Jewish identity.

    After that, Jewishness could essentially only be defined negatively, as reaction against the outgroup. This "lack of awareness" is therefore vitally necessary to sustain group cohesion; if Jews would become aware of the absurdity of their hysterics it would essentially mean the end of jewish distinctness and their assimilation into gentile society (Outside of Israel and some tightly knit religious communities).

    So, when the time will be right?

    Ideally, 1965.

    In my view, the only rational alternative now is to strengthen legal structures that codify property and personal rights while advancing a culture of individualism that prevents racial cohesion among non-whites. The current approach seems to combine the worst of both worlds. Permitting a non-white plurality and now uniting them against yourself.

    If I'm remembering correctly, the whole diversity mania came out of a High Nine case where the importance of black military officers was important to enhance troop solidarity and reduce racial tension. As seems to so often be the case, we're stretching an American black/white racial divide thing to cover all sorts of unintended issues.

    The ‘Diversity is Our Strength’ notion is an example of what I call Antithesis Assertion.

    Another common example is “Black Lives Matter”. Obviously this isn’t true. All the marches and demonstration are over the fact that blacks truly don’t matter much. Last weekend dozens of young blacks shot each other in Chicago and many other black neighborhoods. Few if any of these murders made it into the local papers and none onto cable TV. No one seems to care if blacks shoot each other. Blacks are also angry because they think that they think the police shoot them casually. Maybe they do. So the protesters assert the antithesis of what they believe to be true.

    An earlier protest motto was “Black is Beautiful”. This slogan was invented to combat the common perception that black was ugly. Ugly in behavior, ugly in demeanor and ugly in facial features. It is well known from many surveys that virtually all men find black women the least attractive women of any of the races. Some times the survey responders will find Scandinavian blonds the prettiest. Other times Polynesian girls are favored. African women it seems always come in last. Black women are angry about this.

    A quasi-scientific idea in the same vein is the meme “Race is a Social Construct” often said as ” Race is JUST a Social Construct”. This asserts that race isn’t a biologically valid idea at all. Black people in fact believe in race to a great degree. They organize their lives around race the way that whites seldom do. They call each other “brother”. They call members of their race who do not hold what they think of as black values – “Race Traitors” . Obama had to endure the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton charge that he was not black enough.

    As for the biology, most widespread mammal species have races. Gorillas have two and chimps have three. Those are our closest relatives. How could it be that humans have none? This is a kind of crypto-religious Victorian idea similar to the Great Chain of Being. Mankind is not like lesser animals.

    The Democratic party seems to be organizing around race. Race is now very important to them so they assert its antithesis – Race is a Social Construct. So the those most concerned about race assert the antithesis that the races aren’t real.

    Homogeneity of race in white civilizations IS good. Undeniably so. We are the ones who keep building the civilizations that the rest of the world wants to come to, and when they are allowed to self-select their way in without the restrictions that the majority of whites would place, it is undeniably a bad result for the native whites. That’s all you really need to know to make a wise decision on diversity.

    CJR just came out with a lengthy profile of Carlson:

    https://www.cjr.org/the_profile/tucker-carlson.php

    But Carlson isn’t being silenced. He’s plenty loud enough. And anyway I don’t want to silence him. I don’t want to end free speech, I just want to tell him speech has consequences. I tell him that a year after Trump was elected I ended my 12-year marriage to a Republican.

    “I’ve seen speech have real disastrous consequences. I am going through a divorce right now because of the way speech and politics and religion have worked out in my own marriage. So yes, I see intellectually, free speech. But personally, I see the deep pain. Like everyone, I see a problem in America and I don’t know a way around it.”

    “You don’t know,” says Carlson, “Well, I do know… You oughta let people say what they think and you shouldn’t punish them for that, period. That’s how I feel.”

    I am trying to listen. I am trying to understand. I want to understand. If I can figure out what happened to Tucker Carlson, how he went from successful magazine writer to contrarian journalist to raving Fox News host, I believe I will understand what happened to my country, my life even. What happened to make a rich white man the vox populi? How did I, a mom in the Midwest who can’t afford health care, become the humorless, censoring, liberal elite? How are the winners still insisting they are losers? What happened to this whole mess of a world? So I listen and listen. But I get no answers. Most of the quotes I get don’t make any sense. And I’m no closer to an answer now than when I started.

    To the Left, exotic restaurants are more important than ESL classes bankrupting public schools or emergency rooms being overrun treating illegals for a cold or highways clogged with uninsured unlicensed and often drunk drivers. The elite get cheap stuff and "diverse" choices and the costs are socialized. What happens in some shithole like Pakistan has nothing to do with any of that.

    Iglesias likes women who look like patio umbrellas walking around, the rest of us, not so much.

    Again, after 9/11 figured the flow of illegals and Middle Eastern people would come to a halt. Instead it exploded. Yet Uniparty Establishment scum Bush Jr. and Obama get treated like rock stars . In a more serious time they'd end up like Mussolini.

    And thank God for Carlson and Ingraham. No wonder they want to snuff out Fox News.

    Democrats are just the most realistic. Identity politics aren't "abhorrent," they are reality in diverse countries. Why do you think diverse places like the British Empire, the USSR, Tito's Yugoslavia and Saddam's Iraq were all ruled by authoritarians? Diversity may well be here to stay in America, but if that is the case, democracy is on its way out. It just doesn't work anymore (isn't there some saying about democracy having a 200 year shelf life?).

    “I’ve seen speech have real disastrous consequences. I am going through a divorce right now because of the way speech and politics and religion have worked out in my own marriage. So yes, I see intellectually, free speech. But personally, I see the deep pain. Like everyone, I see a problem in America and I don’t know a way around it.”

    “You don’t know,” says Carlson, “Well, I do know… You oughta let people say what they think and you shouldn’t punish them for that, period. That’s how I feel.”

    I am trying to listen. I am trying to understand. I want to understand. If I can figure out what happened to Tucker Carlson, how he went from successful magazine writer to contrarian journalist to raving Fox News host, I believe I will understand what happened to my country, my life even. What happened to make a rich white man the vox populi? How did I, a mom in the Midwest who can’t afford health care, become the humorless, censoring, liberal elite? How are the winners still insisting they are losers? What happened to this whole mess of a world? So I listen and listen. But I get no answers. Most of the quotes I get don’t make any sense. And I’m no closer to an answer now than when I started.
     

    The woman who wrote it slipped in that she divorced her husband of 12 years in part because he voted for Trump. Why did Tucker bother giving an interview to this shrill harpy? Certainly he couldn’t have expected a fair hearing from her. He has to know you can’t reason with people like this. Does he think this is going to expand his audience somehow?

    The 'Diversity is Our Strength' notion is an example of what I call Antithesis Assertion.

    Another common example is "Black Lives Matter". Obviously this isn't true. All the marches and demonstration are over the fact that blacks truly don't matter much. Last weekend dozens of young blacks shot each other in Chicago and many other black neighborhoods. Few if any of these murders made it into the local papers and none onto cable TV. No one seems to care if blacks shoot each other. Blacks are also angry because they think that they think the police shoot them casually. Maybe they do. So the protesters assert the antithesis of what they believe to be true.

    An earlier protest motto was "Black is Beautiful". This slogan was invented to combat the common perception that black was ugly. Ugly in behavior, ugly in demeanor and ugly in facial features. It is well known from many surveys that virtually all men find black women the least attractive women of any of the races. Some times the survey responders will find Scandinavian blonds the prettiest. Other times Polynesian girls are favored. African women it seems always come in last. Black women are angry about this.

    A quasi-scientific idea in the same vein is the meme "Race is a Social Construct" often said as " Race is JUST a Social Construct". This asserts that race isn't a biologically valid idea at all. Black people in fact believe in race to a great degree. They organize their lives around race the way that whites seldom do. They call each other "brother". They call members of their race who do not hold what they think of as black values - "Race Traitors" . Obama had to endure the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton charge that he was not black enough.

    As for the biology, most widespread mammal species have races. Gorillas have two and chimps have three. Those are our closest relatives. How could it be that humans have none? This is a kind of crypto-religious Victorian idea similar to the Great Chain of Being. Mankind is not like lesser animals.

    The Democratic party seems to be organizing around race. Race is now very important to them so they assert its antithesis - Race is a Social Construct. So the those most concerned about race assert the antithesis that the races aren't real.

    Orwell made note of how leftists tend to go about changing the language to distort the facts and obscure thinking. One of the many things about the left that he was spot on about. Seems they have a lot to hide and their ideas are widely unpopular when people do get a glimpse of what they really want. Most of their ideas are founded in dishonest assumptions and irrational concepts. Little wonder they have to keep clouding or silencing the discussion at every turn.

    Can't tell of Yggy the Nepot is being dishonest or is just plain stupid (likely both) but in his telling of DOGS (Diversity is Our Greatest Strength), Mian's merit as an economist is irrelevant - the most important thing is that there be a proportion of Ahmadiyyan Muslims on the economic council whether they are good economists or not. Their central contribution is their Ahmadiyyan-ness, and their economic insight is collateral.

    It's also a subtle bit of irony here that his example is one of criticizing Islamic religious dogma while assiduously refusing to permit criticism of his own religious dogma. It's all "lie back and think of the delicious tacos" posturing.

    Denying talented people opportunities for service on the basis of their race (white & increasingly Asian) and their ethnicity (nonHispanic) is called affirmative action.

     

    Another definition of AA is, "Providing preferential treatment to persons of demonstrably lower ability, if IQ tests are to be believed, and morals, if crime statistics are to be believed, to benefit those people at the expense of society.

    I realize racial/ethnic quotas only go back to late 1960s, but maybe someday you’ll notice their existence.
     
    Ouch. I notice everytime I get less than I paid for because the AA hire I'm dealing with is meting out 'racial justice.' The situation worsened considerably during the Obama regime.

    Until whites stop being such damned cowards and start confronting the endless subtle and not so subtle aggressions we receive daily, the situation will not improve.

    You’ll need to be more specific than “whites” because it’s progtard/fakeleft whites who are the ones making the decisions and they’re doing awfully well for themselves.

    That’s a moral failing but it’s not called cowardice.

    Until modern multiculturalism came about the US was composed of diverse people in search of a common identity. Even our racial divide wasn't unbridgeable. Black people were as American as any other ethnic group save one. Chuck Berry could sing 'Back in the USA' and be glad about it in 1959. We had de jure and de facto segregation at the time but black and white people were closer than they are now in dress, language and beliefs than they are today. A monstrous crime has been committed on the American people and those who did it don't even see it.

    “Until modern multiculturalism came about the US was composed of diverse people in search of a common identity.”

    I don’t know about that. While Irish and Italian Catholics, for example, were permitted to maintain their own churches and civic organizations, people were expected to learn English and assimilate into the Anglo-American cultural mold (e.g. self-reliance and local gov’t, rule of law and due process, natural rights, freedom of speech, voluntary associations enabled by a high degree of social trust, pride in American history and the founding, etc). Immigration was limited to white Europeans, overwhelmingly Christian, since it was believed (accurately, I think) that these populations would best be able to assimilate, and even so, immigration went through stops and starts. If there were no existing culture or people to assimilate into, these restrictions would not have existed.

    Nope, it was the 1978 Bakke decision on the University of California Medical School's admissions policies. Nixon-appointee Lewis Powell rejected past discrimination/collective punishment rationales for racial preference but found a "compelling state interest"--i.e., one strong enough to overcome even explicit Constitutional provisions (such as Equal Protection)--in "diversity." It has ruled ever since.

    For an interesting follow-up on the career trajectory of the Black applicant admitted in Bakke's place, see Coloring the News by William McGowan.

    I remember the beginnings of Affirmative Action. I was one of the first 'victims' of the nonsense. In 1969, I was awarded a graduate position at a Michigan university - I worked hard to get it. I dreamed of getting a doctorate in my field and maybe teaching at the university level. But, before I could claim it, the head of my department told me that the department had been instructed by the Department of Education (before it was an independent agency) to withdraw my award and give it to a minority student - at that time it meant a Black student. Just like that, all my dreams were shot to hell.

    So, no, I dislike affirmative action as it violates the Constitution and, like slavery, it is an indignity that citizens should not have to endure. Like slavery, it has the blessing of my government. Thus, I am a slave to my government when I can no longer seek a redress of grievance such as affirmative action.

    Even for those who have a misguided sense of fairness and think taking away from someone who had nothing to do with a perceived injustice like slavery and giving it to someone who was not on the receiving end of the injustice is hunky dory, AA should still be recognized as a terrible way to organize a society as rewarding people over things other than merit is going to be less productive and create more resentment than meritocracy.

    The truth is a bit harder than this, I think. Racial resentment triumphs over meritocracy every day of the week, and twice on that most segregated of days, Sunday. Even as whites give goodies and power to blacks, there will be no reconciliation. There will be no forgiveness, there will be no meritocracy. We've spent over $23 tn on the War on Poverty since LBJ was president, largely an interracial wealth transfer from white to black. We've discriminated against our own people in every major employer, college and government agency. We've happily papered over the massive black crime problem, especially black-on-white crime. Lord knows how many once-thriving neighborhoods, schools and cities we have had to flee due to black misbehavior, and then bail out. How many thousands of whites have been murdered, robbed, beaten and raped by feral blacks? And of course, this is all on top of the fact that we have provided them with a society that they could never build for themselves.

    After all of this, do you see race relations getting better these days? With BLM and the race riots in major cities? With the lie that "structural racism" is in fact the cause of black failure, rather than genetics and bad behavior?

    If you think you will ever be forgiven, white boy, just look at South Africa. Look at Rhodesia. Look at Haiti. That is the future if you don't stand with your people.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80's when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    Better now than never. And it’s actually not too late. Hispanic and minority birth rates are cratering, and white births are still above 50%. Criminalizing abortion would be a huge mistake.

    All that is necessary is to bump up white birth rates through economic and cultural growth, a big task, but then also to cut off current immigration.

    Believe it or not, immigrants will also self deport if they no longer feel welcome in the USA.

    Consider the cost of our trade deficit with China.  $30 billion/mo is $360 billion/yr.  If it costs $100,000/yr to create 1 solid job, that's 3.6 million jobs right there.

    Force E-verify on the un-checked employee population and most of the illegals working on fake papers will be uncovered.  Have some highly-publicized exemplary prosecutions of both illegals and employers to persuade the rest to leave as quickly and quietly as they can.  This will free up both jobs and housing for natives and tank the market for new housing construction which employs so many illegals.  Higher wages and lower housing costs immediately give you affordable family formation.  Getting rid of the illegals and their families immediately gives you better schools.

    There really is no way to muck this up except not to do it.

    The Ahmadiyya version of Islam is so disfavoured that a Pakistani Sunni travelled from Bradford to Glasgow to kill a practitioner.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/aug/09/tanveer-ahmed-jailed-for-murder-glasgow-shopkeeper-in-sectarian-attack

    A taxi driver from Bradford has been jailed for a minimum of 27 years for the “barbaric, premeditated” murder of a shopkeeper in Glasgow.

    Tanveer Ahmed, from Toller, had admitted to repeatedly stabbing Asad Shah to death outside his shop in the Shawlands area of the city in March this year in a sectarian attack motivated by hatred of Shah’s religious views.

    Ahmed, 32, a Sunni Muslim, confessed to confronting and then attacking Shah because the newsagent was an open adherent of the Ahmadi branch of Islam, which believes the prophet Muhammad was not the final Muslim prophet.

    As he was led from the dock on Tuesday, Ahmed raised a clenched fist and shouted in Arabic: “Praise for the Prophet Muhammad, there is only one Prophet.” His cry was repeated by some supporters in the public gallery.

    The Crown Office decided the circumstances of the killing did not meet the “statutory test for an offence to be aggravated by religious prejudice”.

    Funny how he never mentions affirmative action. My guess is he played the Latino card on his Harvard application. Sure, Harvard has separate doors for the children of the rich, famous, tribesman, etc., but letting him in was a real stretch.

    Then again, notice how he looks increasingly deranged. His recent photos of himself looks like what you would expect in a newspaper story about a spree killer. People in cults often go insane. Maybe when he was a teenager he was more lucid.

    When I saw some photos of him, I thought he was pushing 60 given how he looks. But then I looked at his bio and he’s 37 which is a complete shock to me.

    He should be a model of health not a used up, dissipated empty shell of a man at 37.

    These people ought to be treated as criminally insane, and would, if people had a functional understanding of history. We’ve lived under the current regime for about 50 years. Virtually everything they tell us is bad *worked very well for about 2,000 years*. We try their way for 50 short years, and everything comes off the rails: divorce, broken people, soul-less jobs, pornography, sodomy. It’s crazy.

    You’re assuming they don’t want to destroy the West (white Christiandom). I know they preach about bettering the world for everyone and claiming their ideas will lead to utopia but sometimes it’s better to ignore what someone says. There is a saying that to understand someone’s intentions, look at the results and infer the intention, don’t go by what they say. As you correctly point out their behavior is destroying the West- and they persist even after a century of examples around the world that leftism is destructive to countries that embrace it. The inference is that they want to do this.

And she probably can’t afford health care because: 1) the middle class has been gutted by outsourcing and immigration, 2) she divorced her husband for trivial reasons (LOL again), and 3) NEITHER party has been able to deliver useful health care reform.

    This lady would probably start voting Republican if the GOPe would stop being corporate shills (and a little racial awareness wouldn’t hurt either).

    Where did anyone get the idea that hordes of ugly, low-IQ people improve any nation comprised of European stock? How did this inane concept ever gain traction?

    Not a rhetorical question.

    The (((fakestream))) media have maligned white men of normal sexuality going on four decades now while elevating to sacred status the brown man. And government schools have done the same for at least the last couple decades.

    It “gained traction” after the defeat of European civilisation in 1918, and then the defeat of Europe itself in 1945.

    Yes, the World Wars indeed had a significant impact on the European psyche. However, various peoples have undergone plenty of adversity over the years without totally losing confidence in themselves - Europe survived the collapse of the Roman Empire, hundreds of years of Muslim slave raids and invasions by the Moors and Ottomans, the Black Plague and Protestant/Catholic sectarian warfare. The Jews survived the Holocaust. Eastern Europe survived Soviet domination and China survived Mao.

    The West's loss of civilizational confidence is a mystery, but I think things are starting to turn around. Identitarian movements are sprouting up throughout the West, while pro-white and pro-Western candidates are winning elections. The question is whether it is too little, too late.

    Wow, Tucker Carlson really hit a nerve by asking simple, obvious questions about the recent dogma that Diversity Is What Unifies America Ever Since Pilgrim Father Emma Lazarus Laid “the moral and cultural foundations of the country” on Plymouth Rock.
     
    And all those PRIDE parades that the founding fathers took part in were for naught, too. It should come as no surprise that the person who made the first statement is 37 years old. If that isn't an indictment of the corruption of historical facts by the left and the schools, I don't know what is.

    His relative youth is utterly irrelevant. 37 is not a child. He has had many years as an adult to learn the truths of the world. His insane beliefs are a function of his ideology not his age. He sounds no different than 85 year old “anti-racists” like Jane Elliott and Peggy McIntosh, who remember very well the days before leftist cultural hegemony, which they were instrumental in achieving.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80's when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80′s when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable.

    Back then it was a way of punishing the working class. When it started to disrupt the social order or lead to political outcomes of redistribution to people they eventually began to see them less as ‘hard workers, what’s the matter why can’t you do a job I’d never do for your pay at half your pay?!’ and more as ‘parasites!’. It took a little while, but they eventually learned to feel the contempt they felt for the native working class through exposure. This can also be seen to some extent on the alt-right with most of them being former libertarians. Richard Spencer, for example, doesn’t understand why British people have a problem with mass EU migration since he doesn’t care about economic consequences and thinks of ethnicity purely in terms of race and doesn’t care either would inequality.

    With the triumph of free-markets in the 80s and end of the Soviet Union the Overton window shifted and the centre-left in the West began to adopt the ideals of neoliberalism too. Identity politics took central place as the new Washington consensus and free trade laws effectively made non neoliberal politics impossible. However, the same lack of empathy that led old-school republicans to enjoy importing ‘hard-working’ immigrants also made them more immune to the religion of empathy that took hold of the left. (This process has varied in intensity, with Sweden and Denmark being at opposite ends of the spectrum. The new Danish Social Democrat leader recently made a pitch against immigration that wouldn’t be out of place on iSteve and the Swedish Social Democrats are about to have the worst election of their history and be displaced as the largest party in parliament by the Swedish Democrats on the basis of their immigration policies.) The centre-left has become dominated by effectively bourgeois concerns. (Who cares if Obama didn’t even try to regulate the banks, he ended ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’!)

    In essence the most pressing class issue in the Western world, immigration, became one only the right were able to address it and even then it often took a Canadian or Australian route of endorsing higher ‘skilled’ immigration that may turn out even worse for those societies long term and which just shifts the socio-economic hammering upstream to the middle class and threatens the election of a grasping alien elite much faster. If it took shape at all and wasn’t more of a dog-whistle they made no effort to deal with.

    Now we have a weird situation where the Republican Party is advocating the most pro-working class policy of immigration restriction whilst the Democrats are at the point of advocating open borders in direct violation of their voters actual desires. (No ethnic group in the US isn’t majority in favour of immigration restrictions)

    The problem is the Republican party is still filled with those Reaganists and won’t stop advocating pro-corporate giveaways and don’t tend to embrace Trump’s new policies other than enforcing immigration restriction. (And then only for illegal immigrants) The political realignment will eventually change this but I don’t see this having happened in time to save Trump from a Democrat majority in Congress in the second half of his first term.

    How is diversity mania part of "the moral and cultural foundations of the country"? Matthew Yglesias is such a blowhard and got mugged once or twice in DC.
    I can remember when you never heard people parroting the word diversity. Maybe pre-1998 or so? Ngram shows it taking off after 1984. But that's in books.

    It’s just appalling how happy these assholes are to destroy the moral and cultural foundations of the country for ratings, a quick buck, or some partisan edge.

    Pretty darn sure i know what the “moral and cultural foundations of the country” are. Christianity, Angl0-Saxon culture, freedom–the traditional rights of Englishmen–and the right to govern ourselves as opposed to being ordered about by the dictats of pompous a*holes like … um … Matty Yeglesias.

    But those do not seem to be the “moral and cultural foundations” Matty is worried about.

    Don’t we all know the type? They show up to the party after all the heavy lifting has been done, and start acting like they own the joint.

    ~~~

    But I’m broad minded and not interested in making everyone else hew to our actual moral and cultural foundations.

    So there’s a real simple solution here:

    Matty and his Pakistani economist, and Colin Kaepernick and BLM and “abolish ICE” and illegal alliens and … pretty much everyone offended by Tucker Carlons can have their own nation. And Those of us who enjoy living with the actual “moral and cultural foundation” of America can have ours.

    How come i know Matty won’t go for this?

    Meanwhile in America, the Democratic Party continues to select only Jews or non-whites for Supreme Court nominations, kinda like in Pakistan.

    The Ahmadiyya version of Islam is so disfavoured that a Pakistani Sunni travelled from Bradford to Glasgow to kill a practitioner.

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/aug/09/tanveer-ahmed-jailed-for-murder-glasgow-shopkeeper-in-sectarian-attack

    A taxi driver from Bradford has been jailed for a minimum of 27 years for the “barbaric, premeditated” murder of a shopkeeper in Glasgow.

    Tanveer Ahmed, from Toller, had admitted to repeatedly stabbing Asad Shah to death outside his shop in the Shawlands area of the city in March this year in a sectarian attack motivated by hatred of Shah’s religious views.

    Ahmed, 32, a Sunni Muslim, confessed to confronting and then attacking Shah because the newsagent was an open adherent of the Ahmadi branch of Islam, which believes the prophet Muhammad was not the final Muslim prophet.

    As he was led from the dock on Tuesday, Ahmed raised a clenched fist and shouted in Arabic: “Praise for the Prophet Muhammad, there is only one Prophet.” His cry was repeated by some supporters in the public gallery.

    The Crown Office decided the circumstances of the killing did not meet the “statutory test for an offence to be aggravated by religious prejudice”.

    Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall says she plans to charge the officer with manslaughter and has invited the Texas Rangers to investigate the shooting.

    The victim, Botham Shem Jean, was a 26-year-old black man. The unnamed police officer who killed him was a white woman, NPR’s Wade Goodwyn reports.

    If diversity were real -- that there are inherent substantive differences between people based on their demographics -- why can't advocates name one difference? If it is the "differences" that are important, name one difference between blacks and whites, men and women, gay and straight. Not where these differences come from -- "genetics", "culture" etc., but an actual clinically substantiated difference.

    It shouldn't be hard to find these differences. That is what scientific researchers do every day. Compare two groups of people to find out their differences. But the diversity scientists apparently have no time to discover what "diversity" exists. Could it be that this whole "diversity" scam is meant to cover up racial quotas? That institutions have been browbeaten and threatened with lawsuits because treating every individual equally might result in disparate success rates such as academic fields and athletics arenas such as the NBA, NFL, and NHL?

    Racial quotas are the choice of cowardly institutions because they possess a veneer of fairness. Proportionate success sounds fair. Institutions obtain litigation insurance at minimal cost to themselves, the insurance premiums are paid for with the civil rights of the poor saps discriminated against.

    The cult of diversity teeters on the brink of incoherence. The people who are inherently different (diverse) are supposed to achieve success at the same rate as if there were no differences between groups (equality). This "diversequality" makes no sense other than as a scam for institutions to cheat their way to "fairness" and get off the hook.

    Question "diversity"!

    If diversity were real — that there are inherent substantive differences between people based on their demographics — why can’t advocates name one difference?

    I was brought up a Catholic, and part of our dogma was the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. That is, there is one God, but He’s in three parts–Father, Son, and Holy Ghost–but it’s all one. The three Persons are distinct, yet are one “substance, essence or nature.” I coud never wrap my head around this idea or see exactly what the point of it was.

    Similarly, the doctrine of Holy Diversity states that we are all wonderfully diverse, but at the same time we are all the same. We have distinct identities based on our race, religion, or sexual identity, but we are also one unified whole (except for the Badwhite problem, for which some solution must finally be found).

    You can choose not to have an Af Act. doctor but you cannot choose your air traffic controller.

    Tucker got a little hung up last night on his piece on Bezos being worth 120 billion but a third of Bezos' employees in Arizona use food stamps.
    I think The Tuck should have brought up the idea of Henry Ford and the 'virtuous circle.' Henry Ford doubled the pay of his employees making the Model T so they could afford the product they manufactured. Society functions more smoothly when everyone gets a piece of the pie.
    But Bezos is just having a power contest with other billionaires. He does not care.

    CJR just came out with a lengthy profile of Carlson:

    https://www.cjr.org/the_profile/tucker-carlson.php

    But Carlson isn’t being silenced. He’s plenty loud enough. And anyway I don’t want to silence him. I don’t want to end free speech, I just want to tell him speech has consequences. I tell him that a year after Trump was elected I ended my 12-year marriage to a Republican.

    “I’ve seen speech have real disastrous consequences. I am going through a divorce right now because of the way speech and politics and religion have worked out in my own marriage. So yes, I see intellectually, free speech. But personally, I see the deep pain. Like everyone, I see a problem in America and I don’t know a way around it.”

    “You don’t know,” says Carlson, “Well, I do know… You oughta let people say what they think and you shouldn’t punish them for that, period. That’s how I feel.”

    I am trying to listen. I am trying to understand. I want to understand. If I can figure out what happened to Tucker Carlson, how he went from successful magazine writer to contrarian journalist to raving Fox News host, I believe I will understand what happened to my country, my life even. What happened to make a rich white man the vox populi? How did I, a mom in the Midwest who can’t afford health care, become the humorless, censoring, liberal elite? How are the winners still insisting they are losers? What happened to this whole mess of a world? So I listen and listen. But I get no answers. Most of the quotes I get don’t make any sense. And I’m no closer to an answer now than when I started.
     

    I tell him that a year after Trump was elected I ended my 12-year marriage to a Republican.

    Probably the best thing that ever happened to the guy. Trump–the gift that keeps on giving!

    Until modern multiculturalism came about the US was composed of diverse people in search of a common identity. Even our racial divide wasn't unbridgeable. Black people were as American as any other ethnic group save one. Chuck Berry could sing 'Back in the USA' and be glad about it in 1959. We had de jure and de facto segregation at the time but black and white people were closer than they are now in dress, language and beliefs than they are today. A monstrous crime has been committed on the American people and those who did it don't even see it.

    Good points. Race relations are worse today. If people want to associate with their own kind, so be it. Government should stay out of it.

    If I'm remembering correctly, the whole diversity mania came out of a High Nine case where the importance of black military officers was important to enhance troop solidarity and reduce racial tension. As seems to so often be the case, we're stretching an American black/white racial divide thing to cover all sorts of unintended issues.

    “Diversity” is an invention used to denote and justify “divide” and ensuing “conquer.”

    Think about it: why is “diversity” so important for the “Western World” but it’s not important for the entire world (as it becomes less diverse due to there being proportionately [absolutely?] fewer whites)?

    Why is this the case? Why does diversity only mean that western countries must be divided racially, ethnically, etc?

    That is, what is the benefit of dividing and conquering the “West?”

    Whether he "supports" Israel means nothing. What matters is whether he is actively destroying it, as he is doing to our nation. And the answer is no.

    , @Menschmaschine
    So he is only a "moderate" supporter of Israeli nationalism? The fact remains, that Zionism is an ethnonationalist Ideology and Israel an ethnonationalist state. Any non-hypocritical "Anti-racist" would have to unequivocally condemn Zionism as racist and demand the abolishment of Israel. Yglesias does not do so and neither does any other Leftist, Jewish or otherwise, in mainstream media.

    I remember the beginnings of Affirmative Action. I was one of the first 'victims' of the nonsense. In 1969, I was awarded a graduate position at a Michigan university - I worked hard to get it. I dreamed of getting a doctorate in my field and maybe teaching at the university level. But, before I could claim it, the head of my department told me that the department had been instructed by the Department of Education (before it was an independent agency) to withdraw my award and give it to a minority student - at that time it meant a Black student. Just like that, all my dreams were shot to hell.

    So, no, I dislike affirmative action as it violates the Constitution and, like slavery, it is an indignity that citizens should not have to endure. Like slavery, it has the blessing of my government. Thus, I am a slave to my government when I can no longer seek a redress of grievance such as affirmative action.

    Hubbub, I’ve mentioned before that I’m sort of half-arsedly confident that affirmative action, the gamed ‘n’ tweaked version that favors White women, kept me from big-company sales and in pretty low-rent shit businesses where all the talent in the world won’t get you income and stability. I cultivated work-arounds that have actually given me some disproportionate influence in my area. I’d’ve rather had a steady job with advancement opportunities.

    It’s “uncomfortable” thinking that government and big corporations blocked me from making contributions in favor of bullshit “social justice” policies, but I don’t know what else to think.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80's when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    The Return of Syrian Refugees Has Begun. And it is Becoming a Tactic of War

    By: Mark Leon Goldberg

    1.5 million Syrian refugees are in Lebanon today. But as the fighting quells in areas of Syria, some of these refugees are considering returning home.
    Who gets to return, the places to which they will return, and the circumstances under which refugees move back to Syria are intensely political decisions. As journalist Charlotte Alfred explains, the return of refugees, albeit in small numbers, has begun. And it is becoming a tactic of the civil war

    https://www.undispatch.com/podcast-the-return-of-syrian-refugees-has-begun-and-it-is-becoming-a-tactic-of-war/

    It appears that we can’t allow the refugees to go back, Germany isn’t culturally enriched enough yet. Shouldn’t Lebanon be undergoing an economic boom with all that cheap labor?

    Legal and political restrictions on immigration do not radicalize Mestizos, who really don’t feel one way or another about it, and just want to get along. They are the future majority of the US.

    That majority will bring with it a shift toward socialism and populism, as you see in South and Central America. It will not bring anti-white political action, because that is not something Mestizos want or care about at all. Keep fantasizing about it though, if you like.

    Haifu Osaka knocks off the reigning PED queen to capture her first Slam and initiate the Long March to convince those pesky Japanese that they too need Somali Muslim enclaves in Osaka, Kyoto, Sapporo, and Obihiro.

    Osaka clearly outplayed Serena even before her roid rage meltdown. Her temper tantrum was perfect for our age as few athletes in the world are treated with more deference in their sports than Serena, yet she claimed victimhood throughout the incidents. Her coach barely stopped short of saying the rules shouldn’t apply to us after the match. Between this and Kaepernick, it is clear victimhood culture has taken over sports.

    Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall says she plans to charge the officer with manslaughter and has invited the Texas Rangers to investigate the shooting.

    The victim, Botham Shem Jean, was a 26-year-old black man. The unnamed police officer who killed him was a white woman, NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports.

    Authorities say the police officer had finished a shift and was returning home, still in full uniform, when she apparently entered the wrong apartment — Jean's apartment.

    Young people hate racism and anti-Semitism and, more recently, “homophobia”, up until they start adopting them themselves.

    However, it’s not an end state. Realism is. You start to like blacks, Jews, and queers again once you realize they’re not at all like you.

    It’s the progressives you hate. They actually deserve it.

    Even for those who have a misguided sense of fairness and think taking away from someone who had nothing to do with a perceived injustice like slavery and giving it to someone who was not on the receiving end of the injustice is hunky dory, AA should still be recognized as a terrible way to organize a society as rewarding people over things other than merit is going to be less productive and create more resentment than meritocracy.

    The truth is a bit harder than this, I think. Racial resentment triumphs over meritocracy every day of the week, and twice on that most segregated of days, Sunday. Even as whites give goodies and power to blacks, there will be no reconciliation. There will be no forgiveness, there will be no meritocracy. We’ve spent over $23 tn on the War on Poverty since LBJ was president, largely an interracial wealth transfer from white to black. We’ve discriminated against our own people in every major employer, college and government agency. We’ve happily papered over the massive black crime problem, especially black-on-white crime. Lord knows how many once-thriving neighborhoods, schools and cities we have had to flee due to black misbehavior, and then bail out. How many thousands of whites have been murdered, robbed, beaten and raped by feral blacks? And of course, this is all on top of the fact that we have provided them with a society that they could never build for themselves.

    After all of this, do you see race relations getting better these days? With BLM and the race riots in major cities? With the lie that “structural racism” is in fact the cause of black failure, rather than genetics and bad behavior?

    If you think you will ever be forgiven, white boy, just look at South Africa. Look at Rhodesia. Look at Haiti. That is the future if you don’t stand with your people.

Why do you think diverse places like the British Empire, the USSR, Tito’s Yugoslavia and Saddam’s Iraq were all ruled by authoritarians? Diversity may well be here to stay in America, but if that is the case, democracy is on its way out. It just doesn’t work anymore (isn’t there some saying about democracy having a 200 year shelf life?).

    A police officer in Dallas shot and killed a young man inside his own apartment on Thursday night, saying later that she mistakenly believed she had entered her own home.

    Dallas Police Chief U. Renee Hall says she plans to charge the officer with manslaughter and has invited the Texas Rangers to investigate the shooting.

    The victim, Botham Shem Jean, was a 26-year-old black man. The unnamed police officer who killed him was a white woman, NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports.

    Authorities say the police officer had finished a shift and was returning home, still in full uniform, when she apparently entered the wrong apartment — Jean's apartment.

    CJR just came out with a lengthy profile of Carlson:

    https://www.cjr.org/the_profile/tucker-carlson.php

    But Carlson isn’t being silenced. He’s plenty loud enough. And anyway I don’t want to silence him. I don’t want to end free speech, I just want to tell him speech has consequences. I tell him that a year after Trump was elected I ended my 12-year marriage to a Republican.

    “I’ve seen speech have real disastrous consequences. I am going through a divorce right now because of the way speech and politics and religion have worked out in my own marriage. So yes, I see intellectually, free speech. But personally, I see the deep pain. Like everyone, I see a problem in America and I don’t know a way around it.”

    “You don’t know,” says Carlson, “Well, I do know… You oughta let people say what they think and you shouldn’t punish them for that, period. That’s how I feel.”

    I am trying to listen. I am trying to understand. I want to understand. If I can figure out what happened to Tucker Carlson, how he went from successful magazine writer to contrarian journalist to raving Fox News host, I believe I will understand what happened to my country, my life even. What happened to make a rich white man the vox populi? How did I, a mom in the Midwest who can’t afford health care, become the humorless, censoring, liberal elite? How are the winners still insisting they are losers? What happened to this whole mess of a world? So I listen and listen. But I get no answers. Most of the quotes I get don’t make any sense. And I’m no closer to an answer now than when I started.

    He’s mad because he knows it’s true, and he doesn’t have any kind of valid rebuttal. He knows anything he says will be ripped apart* so he says nothing other than just sputtering. Carlson crossed his dogma, one that he knows subconsciously is probably wrong factually (see sociopath Rob Reiner’s fight for the right to keep Malibu white – “no Whole Foods for Mexicans in my neighborhood buddy…Pedro”!). For the left, this is a religion aimed at justifying their wealth and moral standing in society, nothing more.

    *Short list:

    Restaurants: Japan is homogeneous and does them better and without immigration; Japan has more Michelin stars than France.

    Innovation: South Korea has the highest per capita patent rate in the world.

    Social harmony: Enormous numbers of examples from all over of the world where diversity is a huge drain on society.

    Culture: Ask the Simpsons how that is working out for them. Diversity has pretty much killed comedy. Besides, what “culture” does this country have besides Chinese take-out and MacDonald’s anyway? Pathetic. Travel to Japan to see what culture is really all about. If more Americans traveled to Asia, they’d be awed at what they are missing out on. They might even get angry or cry.

    Movie industry: Trash. Movies now have to appeal to the broadest possible group, meaning no one can be offended or challenged; most movies are garbage these days. Movies (and television) are also stuffed with politically correct diversity, which means some demographic groups will be turned off by the unnatural inclusion/race/gender replacement of other demographic groups that won’t even watch the movie in the first place. Watching almost any movie is more chore than charm these days.

    Civic discourse: Ruined. Everyone hates each other. There is fighting all the time, and I’m sick of it. I want my country back. I want some peace and quiet.

    Society: Crippled with pervasive political correctness. Video games and comics are increasingly censored so that all the female characters look like men, because otherwise that would be “objectification” or some other nonsense.

    Democracy: Isn’t Singapore the country that had to resort to a police state to keep its various groups from breaking up the country?

    In the United States, the best predictors of the outcome of almost any competitive election are turn-out and racial composition of the district. Does this guy really lack the ability to look up election year demographic maps? Not looking so good for democracy here. In order to win elections, the democrat media increasingly relies on stoking racial angst. See the Young Turks for an example: endless numbers of “white guy murders black guy” YouTube videos that coincide with elections. Disgusting. I’m surprised someone hasn’t memed a list of TYT videos vs. neo-nazi The Daily Stormer’s Race War section and asked “what’s the difference?” yet. The difference is that one is banned while the other has been actively promoted on YouTube. Guess which is which.

    In a majority vote society where an oppressed group is perpetually locked out of power, what brakes are there on racial repression? When the democrats, powered by diversity that is increasingly racist, control all branches of the government and the media, what is to stop them from seizing our properties like in Zimbabwe (and very nearly South Africa), raising our taxes to pay for their social programs, rescinding our freedoms, or discriminating against us in a myriad other ways? Does anyone have an answer to this that doesn’t include “muh constitution” — as if some judge couldn’t reinterpret the words to suit their politics.

    Economic Stability: Ask Venezuela what happens when huge numbers of a lower-achieving, poorer ethnic group – Mestizo/Amer-Indian – rise up and seize the country from their lighter-skinned upper class. Long term, too much diversity can be a really bad idea for the economy, especially when your most productive group is transformed into a hated minority subject to the jealous whims of a larger, lower-achieving, underclass.

    Business: Long term, racial polarization will reverse – through bad policy and affirmative action – any economic gains in the present, especially in the wake of a rising, and enormously competitive China.

    Yup, that's what we did. Clerics need to be cleared by the state before they're allowed to preach, and all religious activities and especially sermons undergo regular checks by plainclothes officers to make sure they're on the up and up.

    Nonsense. The most productive members of each of those cities are white, Jewish, and Asian. They are merely prosperous because they have a large number of those groups in a confined area. All have a large black or Hispanic underclass. Besides, each of those locales are subsidized by the cheap natural resources of Red States. As independent countries, those areas would all collapse into infighting. They are stabilized by easy access to Red State natural resources (and in the case of your latter three, by a conservative state legislature) and a voting system that unites all the groups in those areas against the Red State demographics they depend upon. That arrangement will collapse in the near future as the white guys of Democrat party are finding out in elections this year. Get ready for it.

    “are all very diverse cities”

    Selection bias? What about Memphis, Detroit, Camden, and Baltimore. Forget to mention those? Those cities, more or less, prove my assertion. They are indeed less diverse…but also have far few whites, Jews, and Asians, so they are less prosperous.

    Absolutely insane to give an Asian business owner preferences ahead of white Americans for diversity’s sake.

    I would suggest taking back the value of things like the loan subsidies over time.  This might cause the immivaders to sell out and go home.  That’s one of many ways we can un-do parts of our immigration fiasco.

    Where do you get the idea the killer was white? Usually, when the killer’s identity is concealed, it means the killer is black.
     
    From reading the story I linked to. You know, the one I quoted in my comment? "The unnamed police officer who killed him was a white woman, NPR’s Wade Goodwyn reports" was my first clue.

    ” People aren’t individuals.”

    ESPN proves that much. They run a graph before major games where you get to see what part of the country thinks such and such team will win such and such game. It’s almost always the result that geographic areas in proximity to one team overlap with people’s opinions of who will win, irrespective of fact or Vegas odds. People are NOT individuals, to some extent at least. Economists/game theorists showed back in the 1970s that people base their initial opinions on group identity – racial, religious, ethnic, geographic, etc – and not solely personal interest or what’s best for the individual. People are emotional and tribal, not logical individuals; hence, the unpopularity of Libertarian dogma.

    Your point is irrelevant. As demonstrated by their actions, Israelis don't believe in the strength of diversity. Yglesias won't use the Israelis as an example because they are happy and healthy, unlike the people of the Muslim countries.

    For the same reason he doesn't use Japan or South Korea as examples. They clearly believe diversity is a weakness, yet they have safe, prosperous countries. Even more prosperous than Israel.

    Israel is prosperous, Israelis are generally happy and healthy, and they definitely do not value diversity. A determined minority is even now trying to drive the Arabs out of their country. So I fail to see your point.

    Yglesias cherry picks the example of the Pakistanis, and ignores the fact that ethnic nationalism is the rule in every country outside the West. So if one country is a backwater and another is prosperous it is for reasons other than one valuing diversity less or more. None of them value it at all.

    Choosing Israel as the counterexample to throw at Yglesias makes it funny, because how much insight can this man have into the matter, if even the nation of his people does not fit his theory?

    Better now than never. And it's actually not too late. Hispanic and minority birth rates are cratering, and white births are still above 50%. Criminalizing abortion would be a huge mistake.

    All that is necessary is to bump up white birth rates through economic and cultural growth, a big task, but then also to cut off current immigration.

    Believe it or not, immigrants will also self deport if they no longer feel welcome in the USA.

    Consider the cost of our trade deficit with China.  $30 billion/mo is $360 billion/yr.  If it costs $100,000/yr to create 1 solid job, that’s 3.6 million jobs right there.

    Force E-verify on the un-checked employee population and most of the illegals working on fake papers will be uncovered.  Have some highly-publicized exemplary prosecutions of both illegals and employers to persuade the rest to leave as quickly and quietly as they can.  This will free up both jobs and housing for natives and tank the market for new housing construction which employs so many illegals.  Higher wages and lower housing costs immediately give you affordable family formation.  Getting rid of the illegals and their families immediately gives you better schools.

    In short, I personally advocate co-opting the Republican party and aiming it at winning local and state elections on a platform of independence, anti-government corruption, constitutional reform, anti-censorship, anti-political correctness, anti-immigration, gun rights, and implicit whiteness – among other things. As we gain power, the judiciary and National Guards would be cleared of opposition that would illegally strike down or counter our proposals as the 9th Circuit just did – illegally in my opinion – the California partition ballot measure, which I also support. Federal government activities by the FBI, AFT, CIA, and NSA would be made illegal within our borders, preventing them from infiltrating our party and sabotaging our efforts. Additionally, bills would be passed aimed at restricting the funding and support of our in-state enemies by out-of-state actors while also establishing state subsidies for a BBC-like, free-speech, alternative to the mainstream media and internet (Facebook, YouTube). And we’d seek foreign financial and diplomatic support from Russia and China; the idea being to tacitly imply to China that they might very well get a naval or military base in our new country at some point in exchange…something they’d pay handsomely for.

    This would all build up to a secession measure on the ballot to take place after a democrat wins the White House in a contentious, racially charged election against a white male opponent; this may occur during mid-terms when our people will be the most energetic.

    Ideally, 1965.

    In my view, the only rational alternative now is to strengthen legal structures that codify property and personal rights while advancing a culture of individualism that prevents racial cohesion among non-whites. The current approach seems to combine the worst of both worlds. Permitting a non-white plurality and now uniting them against yourself. I mean this sincerely - I'm beginning to worry for the future of my friends' white children.

    No, you're an idiot.

    Just like a while back when Steve was blogging about the rape lawsuits at Baylor, and someone said it seemed pretty strange that while only a couple of women had gone to the cops about being raped, something like 52 had signed on to the lawsuit as being rape victims, and that clearly a lot of them had to be lying, and were now claiming that what had been consensual sex was rape in hopes of winning some money. Because if they'd really been raped, they'd have gone to the cops. And you came on and said, no, women don't always realized they've been raped. Right. Four dozen women forgot they were raped the next day, and didn't go to the cops, but a year or two later when they hear a lawyer talking about suing, and getting millions of bucks, they all suddenly remembered that they'd been raped.

    You were an idiot then and you're an idiot now.

    He's mad because he knows it's true, and he doesn't have any kind of valid rebuttal. He knows anything he says will be ripped apart* so he says nothing other than just sputtering. Carlson crossed his dogma, one that he knows subconsciously is probably wrong factually (see sociopath Rob Reiner's fight for the right to keep Malibu white - "no Whole Foods for Mexicans in my neighborhood buddy...Pedro"!). For the left, this is a religion aimed at justifying their wealth and moral standing in society, nothing more.

    *Short list:

    Restaurants: Japan is homogeneous and does them better and without immigration; Japan has more Michelin stars than France.

    Innovation: South Korea has the highest per capita patent rate in the world.

    Social harmony: Enormous numbers of examples from all over of the world where diversity is a huge drain on society.

    Culture: Ask the Simpsons how that is working out for them. Diversity has pretty much killed comedy. Besides, what "culture" does this country have besides Chinese take-out and MacDonald's anyway? Pathetic. Travel to Japan to see what culture is really all about. If more Americans traveled to Asia, they'd be awed at what they are missing out on. They might even get angry or cry.

    Movie industry: Trash. Movies now have to appeal to the broadest possible group, meaning no one can be offended or challenged; most movies are garbage these days. Movies (and television) are also stuffed with politically correct diversity, which means some demographic groups will be turned off by the unnatural inclusion/race/gender replacement of other demographic groups that won't even watch the movie in the first place. Watching almost any movie is more chore than charm these days.

    Civic discourse: Ruined. Everyone hates each other. There is fighting all the time, and I'm sick of it. I want my country back. I want some peace and quiet.

    Society: Crippled with pervasive political correctness. Video games and comics are increasingly censored so that all the female characters look like men, because otherwise that would be "objectification" or some other nonsense.

    Democracy: Isn't Singapore the country that had to resort to a police state to keep its various groups from breaking up the country?

    In the United States, the best predictors of the outcome of almost any competitive election are turn-out and racial composition of the district. Does this guy really lack the ability to look up election year demographic maps? Not looking so good for democracy here. In order to win elections, the democrat media increasingly relies on stoking racial angst. See the Young Turks for an example: endless numbers of "white guy murders black guy" YouTube videos that coincide with elections. Disgusting. I'm surprised someone hasn't memed a list of TYT videos vs. neo-nazi The Daily Stormer's Race War section and asked "what's the difference?" yet. The difference is that one is banned while the other has been actively promoted on YouTube. Guess which is which.

    In a majority vote society where an oppressed group is perpetually locked out of power, what brakes are there on racial repression? When the democrats, powered by diversity that is increasingly racist, control all branches of the government and the media, what is to stop them from seizing our properties like in Zimbabwe (and very nearly South Africa), raising our taxes to pay for their social programs, rescinding our freedoms, or discriminating against us in a myriad other ways? Does anyone have an answer to this that doesn't include "muh constitution" -- as if some judge couldn't reinterpret the words to suit their politics.

    Economic Stability: Ask Venezuela what happens when huge numbers of a lower-achieving, poorer ethnic group - Mestizo/Amer-Indian - rise up and seize the country from their lighter-skinned upper class. Long term, too much diversity can be a really bad idea for the economy, especially when your most productive group is transformed into a hated minority subject to the jealous whims of a larger, lower-achieving, underclass.

    Business: Long term, racial polarization will reverse - through bad policy and affirmative action - any economic gains in the present, especially in the wake of a rising, and enormously competitive China.

    Democracy: Isn’t Singapore the country that had to resort to a police state to keep its various groups from breaking up the country?

    Yup, that’s what we did. Clerics need to be cleared by the state before they’re allowed to preach, and all religious activities and especially sermons undergo regular checks by plainclothes officers to make sure they’re on the up and up.

    As a result, our local brand of Islam is more sanitised, but the Christian faiths are actually more aggressive.

    ...though Redmerica would have a huge amount of natural resources and agricultural land. And we would have some ports - Gulf and Lower Atlantic ports do a fair amount of volume, while Trumpland exists along the Great Lakes. It's not all about beachfront condos. Besides, we could pay Bluemerica for use of its ports; it will certainly need the money to keep up with social welfare spending.

    I just don't see what the alternative is. The Sailer Strategy of solidifying a white voter base for the GOP might have worked this one time, but Hillary was a uniquely weak candidate. And demographic change continues. Is our future left-wing authoritarianism?

    The military is a wealth sink, and Israel has limited trade with its neighbors. The island nature of their economy provides both protectionism for the local magnates, but higher transport costs for everyone else.

    Arabs might be a drag in their militancy towards Israel, thereby preventing trade, but the presence of the Arab minority is not the reason why Israel has a lower GDP than the US. In any case, Israel has a lower Gini than we do, and a similar per capita level to Japan. Recall that the Israeli economy was structured as the Jewish Yugoslavia Titoism until the 90s.

    Ukraine and Botswana have similar per capitas, but I don't think you would prefer to live in the latter.

    There were also some Twitter archiving sites that I had to go to in order to delete old archives. The process was to make my feed private, force a recrawl, then make it public again.
     
    Can you elaborate on this process? What is a recrawl? Do you use special software to delete old tweets?

    The big Twitter archiving website was Topsy, which Apple acquired and shut down. I think they acquired it for its tech and staff.

    Topsy was a startup that made the most requested missing feature of Twitter: good searching. Twitter’s search has improved, but it was really terrible back then, so Topsy and a few other websites popped up. Topsy let you navigate the content of individual Twitter accounts in various ways.

    These were useful website if you wanted to search Twitter, but annoying if you wanted to keep a low profile on Twitter. They had a really complex process that allowed you to delete stuff; I got the impression that they didn’t want you to delete anything.

    Basically, you had to delete the stuff from Twitter, then set the Twitter account to private, then go to Topsy and trigger a recrawl of your account by Topsy. Topsy would replace its database of your tweets with what it just crawled, which was a blank, private account. Voila, no more data in Topsy.

    But then you had to set your account back to public and then the next tweet would instantly show up on Topsy, so you had to repeat this once a week or so.

    Today I am not aware of any successors to Topsy. Twitter has cracked down on websites that offer enhanced features, and they have cut off most licensees of “the firehose.”

    Most of the most desirable land is along the Pacific and upper Atlantic (lower Atlantic/Gulf of Mexico is too hurricane-prone) and Great Lakes.

    …though Redmerica would have a huge amount of natural resources and agricultural land. And we would have some ports – Gulf and Lower Atlantic ports do a fair amount of volume, while Trumpland exists along the Great Lakes. It’s not all about beachfront condos. Besides, we could pay Bluemerica for use of its ports; it will certainly need the money to keep up with social welfare spending.

    I just don’t see what the alternative is. The Sailer Strategy of solidifying a white voter base for the GOP might have worked this one time, but Hillary was a uniquely weak candidate. And demographic change continues. Is our future left-wing authoritarianism?

    Young people hate racism and anti-Semitism and, more recently, "homophobia", up until they start adopting them themselves.

    However, it's not an end state. Realism is. You start to like blacks, Jews, and queers again once you realize they're not at all like you.

    Metro Chicago's per capita GDP is about $60,000. Israel's is $37,000. Arabs are a bigger drag than blacks.

    The military is a wealth sink, and Israel has limited trade with its neighbors. The island nature of their economy provides both protectionism for the local magnates, but higher transport costs for everyone else.

    Arabs might be a drag in their militancy towards Israel, thereby preventing trade, but the presence of the Arab minority is not the reason why Israel has a lower GDP than the US. In any case, Israel has a lower Gini than we do, and a similar per capita level to Japan. Recall that the Israeli economy was structured as the Jewish Yugoslavia Titoism until the 90s.

    Ukraine and Botswana have similar per capitas, but I don’t think you would prefer to live in the latter.

Aren't northern Muslims in your country constantly terrorizing Christians, and kidnapping hundreds of village girls to use as suicide bombers and sex slaves? How about the Biafran War?

    Yglesias won’t use the Israelis as an example because they are happy and healthy, unlike the people of the Muslim countries.
     
    Israel is 20% Arab. That's like being 30% black.

    Israel is prosperous, Israelis are generally happy and healthy, and they definitely do not value diversity. A determined minority is even now trying to drive the Arabs out of their country. So I fail to see your point.

    Yglesias cherry picks the example of the Pakistanis, and ignores the fact that ethnic nationalism is the rule in every country outside the West. So if one country is a backwater and another is prosperous it is for reasons other than one valuing diversity less or more. None of them value it at all.

    Choosing Israel as the counterexample to throw at Yglesias makes it funny, because how much insight can this man have into the matter, if even the nation of his people does not fit his theory?

    The other thing about Stelter: He was apparently born in Sept. 1985.

    He has just turned 33.

    This is notable for two reasons:

    (1) He looks at least fifty (totally bald).

    (2) Consider this career overview:


    [Brian Stelter] graduated Towson [College] [BA, Mass Communication] in May 2007, and joined The New York Times as a media reporter later in July of that year.

    In November 2013, he became the new host of CNN's Reliable Sources and also senior media correspondent
     

    How does a graduate of a second-rate college get immediately hired by the New York Times at age 21? And become the host of a major CNN program weeks after his 28th birthday?

    Perhaps (2) is explained partly by (1) and that's all there is to it? He looks like a diginified, mid-age journalist. That must be it! After all, (((Brian Stelter))) is a fellow White person who is (((non-religious))), and who definitely has never been the beneficiary of (((ethnic nepotism))). He's just a bald, goofy-looking expert at journalism.

    Why is Stelter so easy to make fun of (see Mark Dice's impression of Brian Stelter)? It could be that he has never really had to work for anything; that is, has had prestige jobs at the highest level of the U.S. media since age 21 [!]. His easy life has led to the seemingly-contradictory persona of the self-important wimp, the arrogant "soyboy." That's why little Brian Stelter's regular stream of macaroni-armed insults against Alex Jones never land on their mark.

    “Most of the most desirable land is along the Pacific and upper Atlantic (lower Atlantic/Gulf of Mexico is too hurricane-prone) and Great Lakes.”

    Florida does just fine, hurricanes or not. You’re not thinking about this right. It’s not “desirable land” = good place for a condo or golf course; it’s “desirable land” = economically sustainable and pleasant enough for normal people to live on. All of those areas you quoted are much superior to 99% of places like Australia or the Middle East. The South + Midwest + maybe Rust Belt would do just fine by themselves.

    Sailer’s strategy just isn’t going to work; Trump was extremely lucky and Hillary – an unusually weak candidate – won the popular vote by millions. As it sits now, there is no one to replace Trump in the Republican party, and we’ve seen with these latest attacks on him that the GOP leadership is dying to get back to Bush era immigration, trade, and war policies…but now they also embrace censorship, too! See little Marco’s fit over Alex Jones not being banned; he was the one who caused that! What a disgusting worm – all of them. They are all corrupt losers only interested in conserving their pocketbooks and DC respectability.

    I think the partition suggestion is the correct one. This insane SJWism has to end. I’m sick of it. It hangs on me every day – every day it is some slight or insult or something else. Enough. Let’s get a divorce and be done with it. We can have our own institutions run by our own people who espouse our values. After the split, we could have trade relations like EU members. We could also rent ports or whatever else we need in exchange for our trade resources or not having the Russians station a military base here. Alternatively, Mobile bay would make a nice harbor for the Chinese or Russian navies when the time comes (and we could charge them for the privilege), or the well-heeled, technically competent Chinese could always just build another one somewhere else along our shore. They seem pretty good at that.

    Wow, you're a dick.

    No, you’re an idiot.

    Just like a while back when Steve was blogging about the rape lawsuits at Baylor, and someone said it seemed pretty strange that while only a couple of women had gone to the cops about being raped, something like 52 had signed on to the lawsuit as being rape victims, and that clearly a lot of them had to be lying, and were now claiming that what had been consensual sex was rape in hopes of winning some money. Because if they’d really been raped, they’d have gone to the cops. And you came on and said, no, women don’t always realized they’ve been raped. Right. Four dozen women forgot they were raped the next day, and didn’t go to the cops, but a year or two later when they hear a lawyer talking about suing, and getting millions of bucks, they all suddenly remembered that they’d been raped.

    Maybe they did go to the cops... the campus police department.  Run by the university administration.  Which is often the dog wagged by the tail of the athletic department.  Which often employ "fixers" to make problems go away.

    Do you have any idea how much pressure ADs can put on undergrads to prevent star athletes from being inconvenienced, or the programs from coming under unwanted scrutiny as havens of not just sexual assault, but drugs and academic fraud?  After a taste of that, most victims are definitely going to shut up unless and until they see that the winds have changed.  A large settlement is definitely a wind that people will notice.

    You were an idiot then and you’re an idiot now.

    Women get raped when they're passed out. That happens a lot on campus. It has nothing to do with "forgetting".

    I have not read all of the comments, so someone may have made this observation, but why are we aways lectured that this country was born and steeped in racism, bigotry, exploitation, etc., but then told by the same folks that policies that leftists disagree with “are not who we are” or somehow subvert our traditions? Isn’t this just a wee bit contradictory? Maybe the only relevant historical period by which we should currently compare ourselves started in 2009?

    I realize it’s easy to point out hypocrisy and logical fallacies among the political class, but is there no one among this group who is smart and conscientious enough to communicate in a measured way that will stand up with the passage of time? Perhaps they think they can win and then re-write their past and our country’s history as needed. Come to think of it, they do that now so there is precedent and they may well be right.

    And that important and astute political journal Esquire Magazine says criticizing diversity (and immigration) is hate filled and racist.

    Tucker Carlson Attacked the Idea of Diversity in His Latest Hate-Filled Rant. It’s not the first time the Fox News host has used white nationalist talking points.

    By Gabrielle Bruney, September 8, 2018

    “Diversity” is second only to “tolerance” as the most palatable and completely un-radical social justice goal. It literally just means sharing space—a school, a workplace, a nation—with people who are in some way different from you. And who could have a problem with that in America, a country that holds the melting pot among its foundational myths? Tucker Carlson, that’s who. On Friday, the Fox News host gave a monologue that traded dog whistle racism for bullhorn racism.

    The end of Carlson’s rant struck at the root of so much racism and bigotry. Carlson assumes that people who speak different languages, come from disparate nations, or have diverging religious practices “share no common values.” But the immigrants and refugees so hated by the likes of Carlson fight to come to this country, work alongside native-born Americans, and send their kids to American schools precisely because they share our common values.

    Carlson’s repeated attacks on immigrants and diversity have placed him even further right than the current conservative mainstream. Unlike many of his peers, Carlson doesn’t confine his bile to undocumented immigrants, and even condemns legal immigration. His popularity among white nationalists was the subject of an explainer video from Vox last year.

    Better now than never. And it's actually not too late. Hispanic and minority birth rates are cratering, and white births are still above 50%. Criminalizing abortion would be a huge mistake.

    All that is necessary is to bump up white birth rates through economic and cultural growth, a big task, but then also to cut off current immigration.

    Believe it or not, immigrants will also self deport if they no longer feel welcome in the USA.

    Well your kids do take on $200k of ostensible debt for being American citizens, so there’s that.

    I remember things were so much better, happier, and peaceful back during my childhood and early adulthood. It almost makes me want to cry looking at the current state of things. My my, how do I miss things like patriotism and identity. This was such a great place. I remember as a child collecting model US Navy ships like they were ships from Star Trek or something. Good times. All gone now. Today, everything is so atomized and everyone hates everyone else. Everything is PC crap – movies, books, …everything. Everyone lives in fear of being outed as a “bad person” via cell phone camera and the online social justice mob. I guess people didn’t know what they had back when they had it.

    Partition honestly sounds like the ideal solution at this point. We could split up the two (or more) areas under autonomous governments and constitutions but have a post-breakup trade deal like the EU. Maybe even a mutual defense treaty, too. In any case, I think America does need a divorce. We can’t stay in a country that is continually swamping us with immigrants and hurling racial/gender insults at us night and day. I’m done with that. This can’t continue.

    We have to face facts like adults here: that America is dead and gone. The future America is going to be a very, very bad place – one party state, religious liberty stripped (cake baker), police state, controlled media, social media censorship, racism everywhere, endless witch hunts, endless war, and endless disunity. I think people like Steve remember the glory days; in some sense, I think these guys are still living in those times subconsciously. When they think of America, they fondly remember the unity of the Cold War or the moon landing and apply it to current times. But not younger guys like me. My adulthood wasn’t characterized by national unity and accomplishment. All I’ve seen are attacks on my kind in the media and policies that deprive me of the opportunities that my forebears had; hopelessness is soaring along with the suicide rate. Just as there is increasingly no place for white guys in the democrat party, there is no place for me (and you) in this country.

    Yes, the World Wars indeed had a significant impact on the European psyche. However, various peoples have undergone plenty of adversity over the years without totally losing confidence in themselves - Europe survived the collapse of the Roman Empire, hundreds of years of Muslim slave raids and invasions by the Moors and Ottomans, the Black Plague and Protestant/Catholic sectarian warfare. The Jews survived the Holocaust. Eastern Europe survived Soviet domination and China survived Mao.

    The West's loss of civilizational confidence is a mystery, but I think things are starting to turn around. Identitarian movements are sprouting up throughout the West, while pro-white and pro-Western candidates are winning elections. The question is whether it is too little, too late.

    We’ve never lost confidence, we’ve just been conquered by a class of twits. This too shall pass.

    Hubbub, I've mentioned before that I'm sort of half-arsedly confident that affirmative action, the gamed 'n' tweaked version that favors White women, kept me from big-company sales and in pretty low-rent shit businesses where all the talent in the world won't get you income and stability. I cultivated work-arounds that have actually given me some disproportionate influence in my area. I'd've rather had a steady job with advancement opportunities.

    It's "uncomfortable" thinking that government and big corporations blocked me from making contributions in favor of bullshit "social justice" policies, but I don't know what else to think.

    It’s all for the best. The action these days is all on the local level, not least raising an actual family the right way.

    I thank God I didn’t achieve the heights (sic) I aspired to as a younger man, but the process by which that blessed failure transpired in retrospect was comically corrupt.

    At the time of course I blamed myself and was miserable (when I thought about it, which by necessity wasn’t often).

  273. Denying talented people opportunities for service on the basis of their race (white & increasingly Asian) and their ethnicity (nonHispanic) is called affirmative action.

    Except that in the real world that doesn’t happen. Where are these talented white and Asians who are being sidelined? I work in finance and we have nothing but white and Asians. Happy to snap up some more. Affirmative Action is just redistribution that ends up providing money to people who wouldn’t otherwise get it, it is welfare under a nicer name. White people suffer far more from outsourcing and High IQ immigration. Affirmative Action is the least of our worries.

    " People aren’t individuals."

    ESPN proves that much. They run a graph before major games where you get to see what part of the country thinks such and such team will win such and such game. It's almost always the result that geographic areas in proximity to one team overlap with people's opinions of who will win, irrespective of fact or Vegas odds. People are NOT individuals, to some extent at least. Economists/game theorists showed back in the 1970s that people base their initial opinions on group identity - racial, religious, ethnic, geographic, etc - and not solely personal interest or what's best for the individual. People are emotional and tribal, not logical individuals; hence, the unpopularity of Libertarian dogma.

    When I was a libty I figured about ten percent of Americans were ideological libertarian.But as a rule the LP got about one percent of any election where a non-utterly-ridiculous LP candidate ran. Indeed, utterly ridiculous ones like Joel Balam were the ones who would get any vote share at all (the donkeys didn’t field a candidate against a far right cohenservative GOP incumbent.)

    Most ideological libtys either didn’t vote or voted straight ticket GOP. Not even counting the Objectivists who hated the LP because Malice Rosenbomb and her pet poodle Peakoff said they had to.

    The LP never got anyone elected to anything for forty years.

    I saw that, too. Occasionally I look up the personal biography of celebrities from some time ago. It is astounding how many never had children. It's like, yes, you were a great dancer/actress/musician several decades ago, but those accomplishments are ephemeral and now you are old and lonely. I wonder if they have regrets.

    Are you stupid? Matt and his wife both work and barely manage to afford a small condo in a gentrifying corner of DC. Part of the reason he spergs out so much about wanting cities to build as much housing as humanly possible is because he knows he'll never afford an actual house in his ultra-expensive metro area.

    I can’t tell if this is real or sarcasm. At any rate Yglesias is listed as a co-founder of Vox. It’s now owned by Vox Media. Vox Media is a private company but it’s worth in excess of $1 billion. Yglesias is listed as one of 5 key executives by Bloomberg of Vox Media. He’s most certainly a millionaire.

    If Kevin Williamson can make $200k at National Review and Chris Cillizza is making $800k at CNN. You have to think Yglesias is getting paid a 6 figure salary for his executive roles alone plus whatever ownership stake he has in Vox Media.

    He should be a model of health not a used up, dissipated empty shell of a man at 37.

    Then again look at Ezra Klein he looks like he's a host to a dozen liver flukes and tape worms.

    This is (part of) what is so infuriatingly foolish about Matt’s tribe. They believe they are brothers in arms with the ‘oppressed’ brown man and come the eradication of white gentiles they will be sitting around singing kumbaya with their brown brethren in utopia. They completely lack awareness of how they are far more privileged than the average white gentile and how brown folks don’t give 2 sh*ts about their claims of being oppressed.

    The reason that Jews survived for thousands of years as a sharply distinct group is that they sustained an intensive ingroup / outgroup consciousness by cultivating paranoia and hostility against gentile mainstream society. This became particularly important after Jewish emancipation and the secularization of most Jews, which removed an important anchor of Jewish identity.

    After that, Jewishness could essentially only be defined negatively, as reaction against the outgroup. This “lack of awareness” is therefore vitally necessary to sustain group cohesion; if Jews would become aware of the absurdity of their hysterics it would essentially mean the end of jewish distinctness and their assimilation into gentile society (Outside of Israel and some tightly knit religious communities).

    Correction, Ygelsias is a liberal urban Caucasian of mixed white/Jewish background. It's in the political interests of people like him to destroy provincial white America and undermine Israel.

    It took me five minutes of searching to find out that Ygelsias is not a strong supporter of Israeli nationalism.

    So he is only a “moderate” supporter of Israeli nationalism? The fact remains, that Zionism is an ethnonationalist Ideology and Israel an ethnonationalist state. Any non-hypocritical “Anti-racist” would have to unequivocally condemn Zionism as racist and demand the abolishment of Israel. Yglesias does not do so and neither does any other Leftist, Jewish or otherwise, in mainstream media.

    No, you're an idiot.

    Just like a while back when Steve was blogging about the rape lawsuits at Baylor, and someone said it seemed pretty strange that while only a couple of women had gone to the cops about being raped, something like 52 had signed on to the lawsuit as being rape victims, and that clearly a lot of them had to be lying, and were now claiming that what had been consensual sex was rape in hopes of winning some money. Because if they'd really been raped, they'd have gone to the cops. And you came on and said, no, women don't always realized they've been raped. Right. Four dozen women forgot they were raped the next day, and didn't go to the cops, but a year or two later when they hear a lawyer talking about suing, and getting millions of bucks, they all suddenly remembered that they'd been raped.

    You were an idiot then and you're an idiot now.

    Maybe they did go to the cops… the campus police department.  Run by the university administration.  Which is often the dog wagged by the tail of the athletic department.  Which often employ “fixers” to make problems go away.

    Do you have any idea how much pressure ADs can put on undergrads to prevent star athletes from being inconvenienced, or the programs from coming under unwanted scrutiny as havens of not just sexual assault, but drugs and academic fraud?  After a taste of that, most victims are definitely going to shut up unless and until they see that the winds have changed.  A large settlement is definitely a wind that people will notice.

    Right. I'm the one who's out of touch with the real world. Not the Confederate flaggot who's on here white knighting because he knows that, while all those Yankee sluts up north no doubt love going to bed with black athletes at the drop of a hat, the delicate and chaste Southern belles at Baylor would never willingly consort with a black man, so the 52 who did were almost all passed out from drinking too much. Heck, the poor, innocent maidens probably weren't even intentionally drinking, but accidentally had a glass of cider that had turned.

    Maybe they did go to the cops… the campus police department. Run by the university administration. Which is often the dog wagged by the tail of the athletic department. Which often employ “fixers” to make problems go away.
     
    Yeah, that's real believable. Four dozen women are forcibly raped, and not one of them calls the real police; they all just go to the college cops. Who then have them talk to some "fixers" from the athletic department, who convince each of these 48 women who just got forcibly raped to let bygones be bygones for the good of football program by offering them a few thousand dollars in exchange for signing an agreement to never talk about this again. Which is usually how such AD "fixers" work - or are you saying that the Baylor AD actually employs men who use physical violence, or the threat of physical violence, to get these women to shut up? All with the knowledge of the college police department. And that none of these four dozen women say "This is outrageous - I'm going to the Waco PD!", and none of them go back to their dorm, sobbing, and their roommates insist on taking them to the real cops, and none of them ever go home and call their parents, sobbing that they were just forcibly raped and the campus cops are covering it up and refuse to help.

    Yeah. Sure. That's exactly what happened. 48 times.

    And I'm the one who doesn't know the world works...

    Besides, that's not even what Tillman is claiming. Try to keep up up; it's not difficult. He's not claiming that a bunch of these women went to the campus cops and got railroaded. He's saying that the reason that there were 52 rape victims but only a couple of arrests of actual rapists is that they didn't go to the cops at all, because they were unaware they'd been raped. But when a couple years later a lawyer says he's suing for big bucks on behalf of women who've been raped by Baylor athletes, somehow, some way, they manage to become "aware" that they were raped, despite going months or years having no clue about it. Can you explain how that happens - how does a woman who's been forcibly raped while passed out but is completely unaware of it for months or years suddenly become aware of it?

    Right. I'm the one who doesn't understand how things work.

    The emerging shift in Republican views towards immigration has been fascinating to watch. They were in favor of immigration in the 80's when whites still had the demographic advantage and are now coming out against it when the transition has become inevitable. The White Question and the Immigration Question are now entirely separate propositions - the transition can be accomplished without any further immigration. The emergent White position is futile but also counter-productive, because it only serves to radicalize and unite an inevitable non-white majority. Every white baby born today is a minority and this is an ironically odd time for whites to come out against established norms.

    The big Twitter archiving website was Topsy, which Apple acquired and shut down. I think they acquired it for its tech and staff.

    Topsy was a startup that made the most requested missing feature of Twitter: good searching. Twitter's search has improved, but it was really terrible back then, so Topsy and a few other websites popped up. Topsy let you navigate the content of individual Twitter accounts in various ways.

    These were useful website if you wanted to search Twitter, but annoying if you wanted to keep a low profile on Twitter. They had a really complex process that allowed you to delete stuff; I got the impression that they didn't want you to delete anything.

    Basically, you had to delete the stuff from Twitter, then set the Twitter account to private, then go to Topsy and trigger a recrawl of your account by Topsy. Topsy would replace its database of your tweets with what it just crawled, which was a blank, private account. Voila, no more data in Topsy.

    But then you had to set your account back to public and then the next tweet would instantly show up on Topsy, so you had to repeat this once a week or so.

    Today I am not aware of any successors to Topsy. Twitter has cracked down on websites that offer enhanced features, and they have cut off most licensees of "the firehose."

    Thank you. Interesting.

    In my view, the only rational alternative now is to strengthen legal structures that codify property and personal rights while advancing a culture of individualism that prevents racial cohesion among non-whites. The current approach seems to combine the worst of both worlds. Permitting a non-white plurality and now uniting them against yourself. I mean this sincerely - I'm beginning to worry for the future of my friends' white children.

    "Diversity is a Strength. New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, Dallas and Austin are all very diverse cities and are Economic Engines of America."

    Nonsense. The most productive members of each of those cities are white, Jewish, and Asian. They are merely prosperous because they have a large number of those groups in a confined area. All have a large black or Hispanic underclass. Besides, each of those locales are subsidized by the cheap natural resources of Red States. As independent countries, those areas would all collapse into infighting. They are stabilized by easy access to Red State natural resources (and in the case of your latter three, by a conservative state legislature) and a voting system that unites all the groups in those areas against the Red State demographics they depend upon. That arrangement will collapse in the near future as the white guys of Democrat party are finding out in elections this year. Get ready for it.

    "are all very diverse cities"

    Selection bias? What about Memphis, Detroit, Camden, and Baltimore. Forget to mention those? Those cities, more or less, prove my assertion. They are indeed less diverse...but also have far few whites, Jews, and Asians, so they are less prosperous.

    "Moreover, By 2024 Texas,NORTH Carolina, GEORGIA, Mississippi, Florida, ARIZONA and Michigan will be Blue States."

    This is why I advocate an independence movement to take our people out of your union.

    "We liberals have Media, Academia, Politicians and young people on our side.
    CONSERVATIVES WILL LOSE AMERICA."

    A majority of the white youth voted for Romney, a loser. So, not really. What you HAVE are racist non-whites. And what you are doing is stealing our country from its true owners via the importation of scab voters. I advocate taking my country out of yours in response, frame it however you'd like.

    Georgia, Texas and Florida will be blue states in 2018. North Carolina does not have a Senatorial contest this year. Michigan was always a Blue State, 2016 was a fluke, and it will be more blue in November. ARIZONA IS LIKELY TO turn blue, this Mc Sally is really Flake in a dress. Marsha Blackburn is well behind in Tennessee. Nevada has always been a forgone GOP loss this year. The thought to be vulnerable Democrat incumbents in WV, MT and N. DAKOTA seem to be coasting to victory. There is no place to hide.

    No, you're an idiot.

    Just like a while back when Steve was blogging about the rape lawsuits at Baylor, and someone said it seemed pretty strange that while only a couple of women had gone to the cops about being raped, something like 52 had signed on to the lawsuit as being rape victims, and that clearly a lot of them had to be lying, and were now claiming that what had been consensual sex was rape in hopes of winning some money. Because if they'd really been raped, they'd have gone to the cops. And you came on and said, no, women don't always realized they've been raped. Right. Four dozen women forgot they were raped the next day, and didn't go to the cops, but a year or two later when they hear a lawyer talking about suing, and getting millions of bucks, they all suddenly remembered that they'd been raped.

    You were an idiot then and you're an idiot now.

    Women get raped when they’re passed out. That happens a lot on campus. It has nothing to do with “forgetting”.

    If you knew how to read, you would know that’s what I said. And if you went to college — which Dexter Manley showed to be possible even if one can’t read — you would know that what I said is true.

    Here’s what you said back then, after I and several other people stated that it’s impossible to believe that there were anything like 52 forcible rapes when only a few women went to the cops:

    You couldn’t be more wrong. Often a rape that isn’t reported to police is one that the victim is entirely unaware of or one that she inferred happened but can’t really prove because she was passed out at the time. And it’s a certainty that the Baptists at Baylor know this.

    And, since you didn’t answer back then, I’ll ask you again, Einstein: if those four dozen or so Baylor coeds were “unaware” that they’d been raped, then how the hell did the lawyer find out about it?

    And if most of these women aren’t simply sluts who now are trying to cash in by falsely claiming to be rape victims, after suddenly realizing they were raped – despite going months to years somehow being unaware of the fact – then why aren’t they going to the cops now? The statute of limitations on rape in Texas is 10 years.

    Divide and conquer has been one of their favored strategies.
     
    You don't have to divide people already organized into thousands of mutually-hostile tribes.  It takes something like the Catholic Church's prohibition on marriage between couples closer than e.g. sixth cousins to break down tribal boundaries and create a single people from them.

    Islam sanctions cousin marriage.  No Islamic society is going to ever get far from tribalism.

    You don’t have to divide people already organized into thousands of mutually-hostile tribes.

    Islam is a countervailing force to tribalism, as is pan-Arabism. Which explains why both have been under relentless attack.

    Maybe they did go to the cops... the campus police department.  Run by the university administration.  Which is often the dog wagged by the tail of the athletic department.  Which often employ "fixers" to make problems go away.

    Do you have any idea how much pressure ADs can put on undergrads to prevent star athletes from being inconvenienced, or the programs from coming under unwanted scrutiny as havens of not just sexual assault, but drugs and academic fraud?  After a taste of that, most victims are definitely going to shut up unless and until they see that the winds have changed.  A large settlement is definitely a wind that people will notice.

    You were an idiot then and you’re an idiot now.
     
    You have no idea how the world works.

    You have no idea how the world works.

    Right. I’m the one who’s out of touch with the real world. Not the Confederate flaggot who’s on here white knighting because he knows that, while all those Yankee sluts up north no doubt love going to bed with black athletes at the drop of a hat, the delicate and chaste Southern belles at Baylor would never willingly consort with a black man, so the 52 who did were almost all passed out from drinking too much. Heck, the poor, innocent maidens probably weren’t even intentionally drinking, but accidentally had a glass of cider that had turned.

    Maybe they did go to the cops… the campus police department. Run by the university administration. Which is often the dog wagged by the tail of the athletic department. Which often employ “fixers” to make problems go away.

    Yeah, that’s real believable. Four dozen women are forcibly raped, and not one of them calls the real police; they all just go to the college cops. Who then have them talk to some “fixers” from the athletic department, who convince each of these 48 women who just got forcibly raped to let bygones be bygones for the good of football program by offering them a few thousand dollars in exchange for signing an agreement to never talk about this again. Which is usually how such AD “fixers” work – or are you saying that the Baylor AD actually employs men who use physical violence, or the threat of physical violence, to get these women to shut up? All with the knowledge of the college police department. And that none of these four dozen women say “This is outrageous – I’m going to the Waco PD!”, and none of them go back to their dorm, sobbing, and their roommates insist on taking them to the real cops, and none of them ever go home and call their parents, sobbing that they were just forcibly raped and the campus cops are covering it up and refuse to help.

    Yeah. Sure. That’s exactly what happened. 48 times.

    And I’m the one who doesn’t know the world works…

    Besides, that’s not even what Tillman is claiming. Try to keep up up; it’s not difficult. He’s not claiming that a bunch of these women went to the campus cops and got railroaded. He’s saying that the reason that there were 52 rape victims but only a couple of arrests of actual rapists is that they didn’t go to the cops at all, because they were unaware they’d been raped. But when a couple years later a lawyer says he’s suing for big bucks on behalf of women who’ve been raped by Baylor athletes, somehow, some way, they manage to become “aware” that they were raped, despite going months or years having no clue about it. Can you explain how that happens – how does a woman who’s been forcibly raped while passed out but is completely unaware of it for months or years suddenly become aware of it?

    Right. I’m the one who doesn’t understand how things work.

    All that is necessary is to bump up white birth rates through economic and cultural growth, a big task, but then also to cut off current immigration.

    Believe it or not, immigrants will also self deport if they no longer feel welcome in the USA.

     
    Consider the cost of our trade deficit with China.  $30 billion/mo is $360 billion/yr.  If it costs $100,000/yr to create 1 solid job, that's 3.6 million jobs right there.

    Force E-verify on the un-checked employee population and most of the illegals working on fake papers will be uncovered.  Have some highly-publicized exemplary prosecutions of both illegals and employers to persuade the rest to leave as quickly and quietly as they can.  This will free up both jobs and housing for natives and tank the market for new housing construction which employs so many illegals.  Higher wages and lower housing costs immediately give you affordable family formation.  Getting rid of the illegals and their families immediately gives you better schools.

    There really is no way to muck this up except not to do it.

    I used my Agree button too soon but you are spot on. We could easily get 10 – 30 million illegals to self deport if they can’t make a living.

    Let’s do it. This is my country and I never voted to allow these people in much less stay here.

    If this country somehow goes down the Poland/Hungary path, possible only if there is a permanent split in the Dem party similar to how the PC party collapsed in Canada 1993, where will Mr. Yglesias go?

    Same place that Mr. Shapiro and Mr. Krugman will go to.

    The neoconservatives were all Trotskyites that had no time for Israel, until the Six-Day War happened and they became flagrant Zionists.

    Matt, Ben and Paul would be far happier among their own people, in their own country. But it seems they put up with alienation in our country because of their avarice.

    Diversity is also important for national security. The New York Police Department has one of the most effective counterterrorism units in the world in part because it is so diverse: 22 percent of the officers hired in about the past 18 months are foreign-born, hailing from 77 countries.
