Kris Kobach currently holds a 91 vote lead in his attempt to wrest the GOP gubernatorial nomination away from the sitting Republican governor of Kansas. East coast elites are up in arms because they fear that Kobach, a high IQ, hard-working, good-looking politician of unusually sophisticated views, would become vice-presidential timber, at least, if elected governor. The easiest way to stop him in Republican Kansas is to keep him from winning a GOP primary.

From Vox:

Racism is a problem of white elites, and Kris Kobach proves it

White nationalism and elite education make a powerful combination.

By Dylan Matthews @[email protected] Aug 9, 2018

Kris Kobach, who is currently holding on to a lead of fewer than 200 votes in Kansas’s Republican primary for governor, is one of America’s most effective advocates of racist policy. …

I don’t know what’s in Kobach’s soul. But I do know that one of the few constants in his career is an enthusiasm for policies that hurt racial minorities.

He’s not alone in that among elected officials. What stands out about Kobach is the pedigree. His résumé is the stuff of ambitious Ivy Leaguers’ dreams. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard, as the top student in the government department, and received a master’s and doctorate at Oxford as a Marshall Scholar. He attended Yale Law, was on the law review, and got an appellate clerkship. He worked for years as a law professor at the University of Missouri Kansas City, eventually getting tenure.

We have an unfortunate tendency in America to treat racism and racial resentment as a pathology of the white underclass. Takes about the need for Democrats to abandon woke “identity politics” typically cite a desire to win back the “white working class,” not white members of the Harvard Club.

But while there’s some survey data backing the idea that working-class whites are likelier to harbor racial resentment (see table 3 here), the racism that kept Jews and black people out of country clubs

The Golfocaust!

Naive people believe don’t believe me when I point out how much of the resentful worldview of so many of our media elites in 2018 is inspired in substantial part by the outrage they continue to nurse over family stories of how great-grandpa couldn’t get into, say, the Los Angeles Country Club in 1922 so he had to co-found the Hillcrest Country Club. But, if you pay careful attention, you can see how they can’t help letting this hilarious obsession slip out over and over.

(and out of Harvard) for generations is still around. And Kobach is a great example of how it can continue to have real political consequences.

The incredible effectiveness of racist elites

Institutions like Harvard occupy a weird place in our public culture, derided on both left and right for their complicity in various social ills (and of course no one loves to bash Harvard more than people who went there), but nonetheless associated with a kind of cosmopolitan sophistication. They may propagate, say, laissez-faire economic ideas, or reinforce class privilege, but surely they’re the enemy of base forms of ethnonationalism.

“Base forms of ethnonationalism” … so unlike elite forms of ethnonationalism, such as, to take one of a myriad of Harvard examples (e.g., Alan Dershowitz), Harvard President Larry Summers’ pro-Zionism.

Kobach, however, is a friend to white ethnonationalism. And Harvard not only didn’t stop him but helped give him the social prestige and power to carry out his mission.

Indeed, if anything Harvard seems to have helped Kobach find and develop his brand of racism. Kobach’s main mentor at Harvard was Samuel Huntington.

Samuel P. Huntington was such a racist that his other student proteges besides Kobach include Francis Fukuyama, Fareed Zakaria, and Eliot Cohen.

Huntington is a complicated figure, a pioneer in political science whose The Soldier and the State (1957), Political Order in Changing Societies (1968), and The Third Wave (1991) are justifiably considered classics.

What have guys named Samuel Huntington ever done for the United States of America? I mean, besides signing the Declaration of Independence or being a 19th Century governor of Ohio?

Seriously, the Huntington clan, which traces back to a single Puritan family who arrived in the 1630s, is likely the most broadly high-achieving in American history. The American Journal of Sociology exclaimed in 1936, “They are a great race, these Huntingtons…”

For example, in my county alone, there are two separate municipalities with “Huntington” in their name. One is a famous surf town. And you know what those blond surfers are like. Worse than golfers!

Matthews continues:

… Two decades later, he [Huntington] authored Who Are We?, a book arguing that America’s Protestant culture was being eroded by Latino immigrants; the white nationalist Richard Spencer has cited the book as a key influence. …

Vox is offended that the late Samuel Huntington, an American elite with roots deep in America’s founding stock who was proud of his people’s accomplishments in building America, merely existed. To Vox, Huntington’s career is like a lifetime of Matt Damon’s WASP impudently answering Joe Pesci’s mobster’s question in De Niro’s The Good Shepherd of “What do you people have?”

“The United States of America. The rest of you are just visiting.”

Vox continues:

But Kobach’s experience at Harvard, Oxford, and Yale enabled his career. …

Kobach isn’t alone. White House adviser Stephen Miller didn’t have a Huntington figure during his time at Duke; in all the profiles written about Miller, I’ve yet to find one that mentions a professor who mentored him or even liked him. But it was Miller’s role as a conservative voice on campus during the Duke lacrosse scandal (a scandal that became a national affair only because of Duke’s elite status) that catapulted him into a career as a policy aide on Capitol Hill, and now in the White House. He, like Kobach, leveraged elite credentials to implement racist policies.

Stephen Miller’s one-man conspiracy to get the Durham DA, 88 Duke professors, and the national media to all trumpet a black stripper’s hoax about evil white Haven Monahan lacrosse players is one of the most diabolical plots ever hatched. And it was only possible because an elite college allowed one teenage conservative to enroll as a freshman: the lesson we must all take from this is that never again can elite universities allow themselves to become infected by even a single bacillus of skepticism. Eternal vigilance is the price of our precious freedom from speech.

Commenter calls Miller’s infamous conspiracy to trick the great and good into making fools of themselves The Protocols of the Youngster of Santa Monica.

    Let us have a national "conversation" of the elite racism of the members of the Century Country Club who have kept out blacks.

    We know there weren't any at least when Bloomberg ran for office because he felt compelled to drop membership--and say all sorts of PC blather--but then resumed membership immediately afterwards. (Somehow i think he was welcome there even as mayor.)

    But by all means lets have discussions around the concepts of "openess", "universalism", "tribalism" etc. etc. and of course "who is 'elite'?"

    As I recall, Jews weren’t excluded from Harvard, but in the first half of the 20th Century their numbers were capped at 20% of the student body. So certain Jews were excluded from Harvard because they weren’t as smart as some other Jews.

    " but I really have a lot of respect for your capacity to write about this stuff without coming off as frothing-at-the-mouth."

    Then you must have glossed over this nugget when our host said, "Vox is offended that the late Samuel Huntington, an American elite with roots deep in America’s founding stock who was proud of his people’s accomplishments in building America, merely existed."

    I suppose he crafted that sentence in response to counter Matthews' boiler plate special of "But economically unprivileged whites typically don’t cause damage on the scale of Miller or Kobach — or even Spencer or Taylor. That escalation requires elite credentials and connections." I

    t's called one-upsmanship between race hustlers for hackneyed language.

    And you probably glanced over this tidbit when our host said, "Naive people don’t believe me when I point out how much of the resentful worldview of so many of our media elites in 2018 is inspired in substantial part by the outrage they continue to nurse over family stories of how great-grandpa couldn’t get into, say, the Los Angeles Country Club in 1922 so he had to co-found the Hillcrest Country Club."

    The uncomfortable reality is that the people are not naive, and they are not buying into his overblown generalization, as they are fully cognizant of their own NOTICING.

    Dunno. I tend to think that during the Jim Crow era Blacks had more pressing concerns than getting into the right country club….

    (and out of Harvard) for generations is still around. And Kobach is a great example of how it can continue to have real political consequences.

    Yeah. I mean only approx 10% of the students at Harvard in the 1930s were Jewish….

    Two decades later, he authored Who Are We?, a book arguing that America’s Protestant culture was being eroded by Latino immigrants; the white nationalist Richard Spencer has cited the book as a key influence.

    Huntington defined the USA as an Anglo-Protestant country in that book….And it’s kinda hard to argue with that characterization…

    To be clear, many people went through Harvard, read and took classes with Huntington, and did not wind up being anything remotely like Kris Kobach. (The Atlantic’s James Fallows was one.) Huntington was not a sort of racist Midas touch, where you take a class and come away wanting to deport Muslims.

    I’m not saying that we have to keep an eye on everyone that he taught….or who read Who Are We?

    Kobach isn’t alone. White House adviser Stephen Miller

    Should I mention that he’s Jewish? Nah, don’t want to muddy the waters….

    didn’t have a Huntington figure during his time at Duke; in all the profiles written about Miller, I’ve yet to find one that mentions a professor who mentored him or even liked him.

    And yet he somehow managed to figure out that maybe Latinx immigration was not good for Anglo-America….

    Another example of the totalitarian impulses of this freak of nature is shown in this quote from the aforementioned article:
    "Harvard not only didn’t stop [Kobach] but helped give him the social prestige and power to carry out his mission. Indeed, if anything Harvard seems to have helped Kobach find and develop his brand of racism. Kobach’s main mentor at Harvard was Samuel Huntington. "

    The Vox article can be 100% broken down via two observations:

    1. In Vox(lib)speak: “Racist policies” = policies that do not give minorities a racial advantage.

    2. Virtually all Jews are “friends” of Jewish ethno-nationalism. Harvard “gives them the social power and prestige to carry out this mission”.

    Thus, until Harvard ceases to do that for Jews, and Vox starts naming the Jew, then this article is both morally and politically bankrupt and its message nullified.

    I think that's an illusion caused by those being the ones who care the most about the issue (maybe the Satmar care a lot in the other direction, but they're too insular to matter much to others). Every once in a while you'll get a Philip Weiss who makes his opposition central to his work, but most people are going to be more focused on other things.

  21. ‘ “Racism Is a Problem of White Elites, and Kris Kobach Proves It”‘

    To anyone who is aware of racial tensions and hostility between blacks and Asians, between blacks and Hispanics, and between Asians and Hispanics — not to mention various intra-mural hostilities — the quoted passage is simply bizarre.

    Perhaps ironically, there is one thing that regardless of political persuasion, most whites seem to fail to grasp about racism: it’s not all about them.

    But while there’s some survey data backing the idea that working-class whites are likelier to harbor racial resentment (see table 3 here), the racism that kept Jews and black people out of country clubs
     
    Dunno. I tend to think that during the Jim Crow era Blacks had more pressing concerns than getting into the right country club....

    (and out of Harvard) for generations is still around. And Kobach is a great example of how it can continue to have real political consequences.
     
    Yeah. I mean only approx 10% of the students at Harvard in the 1930s were Jewish....

    Two decades later, he authored Who Are We?, a book arguing that America’s Protestant culture was being eroded by Latino immigrants; the white nationalist Richard Spencer has cited the book as a key influence.
     
    Huntington defined the USA as an Anglo-Protestant country in that book....And it's kinda hard to argue with that characterization...

    To be clear, many people went through Harvard, read and took classes with Huntington, and did not wind up being anything remotely like Kris Kobach. (The Atlantic’s James Fallows was one.) Huntington was not a sort of racist Midas touch, where you take a class and come away wanting to deport Muslims.
     
    I'm not saying that we have to keep an eye on everyone that he taught....or who read Who Are We?

    Kobach isn’t alone. White House adviser Stephen Miller
     
    Should I mention that he's Jewish? Nah, don't want to muddy the waters....

    didn’t have a Huntington figure during his time at Duke; in all the profiles written about Miller, I’ve yet to find one that mentions a professor who mentored him or even liked him.
     
    And yet he somehow managed to figure out that maybe Latinx immigration was not good for Anglo-America....

    Tendentious writing is what comes to mind.

    As I’ve said for some time, it’s politics as team sport fanaticism–demonizing the opponent with slurs and innuendo. The prog-left has been reduced to nothing but name-calling.

    And who is Dylan Matthews? Here a take from Wiki: “That first article [posted on Vox] was about new scientific research [on SSM] which [later] turned out to be fraudulent, and 13 months later he wrote a mea culpa article about the fraud and how he was deceived by it.”

    A fraud taken in by a fraud. Vox is a treasure-load.

    Anon 358, that is an inapt comparison. In New England in Year of our Lord 1758, if there was a job opening for someone fluent in Hebrew, a son of Abraham's tribe was probably the only practical choice. It was not a matter of sticking to a stereotype or to "surface level" traits.

    Harvard probably wanted the Jewish faculty hire to produce a Harvard-branded English language translation of the Old Testament, perhaps with some glosses added to appeal to genteel Congregationalists. That's my guesstimate anyway.

    I don't see the problem with that at all as long as they're

    a) insisting that people of "dominant groups" write characters from "dominant groups"

    b) keeping characters from "dominant" groups in proportion to their numbers in the population

    I mean when leftists lecture us about how men don't know what it's like to be a woman and whites don't know what it's like to be black, etc, they're right. The problem of course is that they stop there. Blacks, of course, do not know what being white is like, and women do not know what it's like to be a man. But (((leftists))) insist that people from "oppressed groups" have total and accurate insight into the experiences of "privileged" people while the converse is not true. That explains why Hillary was not widely called out for tweeting in 2016 that "white people need to do a better job of listening to people of color" without also calling on colored people to listen more to white people (something our country desperately needs*).

    *If all of us white people who have been harassed by the police for trivial stuff had our voices valued, this whole "Beckies need to stop calling the cops on black people" meme might die.

    I don’t think Dylan Matthews (who as far as I know isn’t Jewish) cares that much about that. It’s just a handy thing to reach for. Jews in America never faced the legal restrictions of countries with established churches (not that most American journalists tend to know much about other countries or the pre-modern world), so there’s basically restricted golf clubs, Ivy League quotas (which you don’t want to talk too much about if you’re worried someone might compare their current discrimination against Asians) and Leo Frank if you want to fit them into a whiggish narrative of racial progress. And given the far larger number of blacks who were lynched (not to mention the larger number of Italians, which hardly anybody is even aware of), you can’t just refer to Frank that many times. The “How [European ethnics] Became White” story has become a broadly accepted narrative which fits the conventional wisdom of race being a social construct. There’s only so many examples you can give to fit it.

    The so-called "Jewish Quota" at Harvard, according to Jerome Karabel, drastically cut the Jewish contingent of Harvard's student body from 10 times its proportion of the general population in the 1920s all the way down to 4 times in the 1930s. This, of course, laid the groundwork for the Holocaust (according to Jack D anyway) and the over-representation thereafter quickly resumed the 10x factor it still enjoys today. So who's going to move aside to make more room for Asians? Just kidding.

    Matthews is right, per Sailer's Comment #39: "If Crystal Mangum had accused the UNC basketball team of gang rape... the entire state’s establishment, white and black, [would have come] together to figure out a way to make this thing go away before it becomes a scandal..."

    The dynamic is at work in another of this week's iSteve headlines. Last night's DNC Evening News (CBS-TV branch) reported on the police chief's son and showed the punch-kick-spit performance, even going so far as to flash a mug shot that was male, but not pale or stale. Judging from the voice-overs, the cause of the attack was a mystery wrapped inside an enigma, a puzzling case of a boy from a good family going rogue.

    Fortunately for Mr. Matthews, this scandal is unlikely to become much of a national affair, given Tyrone's lack of the necessary status and privilege. Well, as Steve reminds us, the US is a big country, and we can bide our time until the right kind of criminal appears, so the right lessons can be taught and learned.

    The Vox article can be 100% broken down via two observations:

    1. In Vox(lib)speak: "Racist policies" = policies that do not give minorities a racial advantage.

    2. Virtually all Jews are "friends" of Jewish ethno-nationalism. Harvard "gives them the social power and prestige to carry out this mission".

    Thus, until Harvard ceases to do that for Jews, and Vox starts naming the Jew, then this article is both morally and politically bankrupt and its message nullified.

    There is nothing left to discuss beyond these points.

    “Virtually all Jews are “friends” of Jewish ethno-nationalism”

    From personal experience I would estimate the absolute upper end on West Coast-based Jews who intensely follow Israel news is 1 out of 8, of these mostly owing to having a relative over there. This group would actually be somewhat up-to-date on M.E. flashpoints with relatively informed opinions about the political horse races in Jerusalem. The other 87% might have nascent Zionism sympathy, backed by scant recent knowledge (post-Munich Olympics). They know zip about the '82 Lebanon war. They sort of remember Camp David II. They remember Yitzhak Perlman getting assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in the Ambassador Hotel ballroom, by getting pushed off the dais in his wheelchair -- something something, you know, etc.

    Steve bitterly compares it USC football supporters which is a preposterous analogy -- a Trojan superfan knows they went 11-3 and can tell Clay Helton from Clay Matthews. Few U.S. Jews (or gentiles) are more than noncommittal Israel backers because it's foreign and boring to them. What they actually do exhibit as a group, is unthinking reflexive 1960s Civilrights liberalism. You don't have to remember any names and dates for that; it's just a fad style you can pick up from the culture by osmosis.

    Oh, c'mon, progressive priestly class, don't be so modest about your mind reading and soul divining abilities. That's your problem - you're too damn modest. I mean, you just stated a few sentences earlier:

    Kris Kobach...is one of America’s most effective advocates of racist policy.
     
    If that doesn't qualify as an encyclopedia quality fact, I don't know what does. So with a fact like that, how can you not make the jump to knowing what's in his soul?

    As I recall, Jews weren’t excluded from Harvard, but in the first half of the 20th Century their numbers were capped at 20% of the student body. So certain Jews were excluded from Harvard because they weren’t as smart as some other Jews.

    Does the Asian cap go back to Larry Summers day? His tenure was 5 years, from '01-'06. Or does it even precede him (I've not followed the civil suit).
    , @Lot
    There isn't an asian cap. Asian undergraduate enrollment rose when you consider all the "decline to state" people plus foreign Asians.

    Also don't forget that Asians were far more numerous at Harvard than IQ median of 106 would predict. The children of the elite Chinese fleeing Mao and left wing nationalists in SE Asia who were admitted to Harvard at a higher rate in the 80s and 90s are a higher IQ bunch than the current cohort of Chinese Americans who are the children of economic migrants.

    Amy Chua's giant-brained father was a lot more representative of the first cohort of postwar Chinese migration than the past 20 years, which was mostly a mix of chain migration and illegals who went to work in sweatshop type employment.

    I don't think Dylan Matthews (who as far as I know isn't Jewish) cares that much about that. It's just a handy thing to reach for. Jews in America never faced the legal restrictions of countries with established churches (not that most American journalists tend to know much about other countries or the pre-modern world), so there's basically restricted golf clubs, Ivy League quotas (which you don't want to talk too much about if you're worried someone might compare their current discrimination against Asians) and Leo Frank if you want to fit them into a whiggish narrative of racial progress. And given the far larger number of blacks who were lynched (not to mention the larger number of Italians, which hardly anybody is even aware of), you can't just refer to Frank that many times. The "How [European ethnics] Became White" story has become a broadly accepted narrative which fits the conventional wisdom of race being a social construct. There's only so many examples you can give to fit it.

    so there’s basically restricted golf clubs,

    Big f’ing deal. There’s also restricted synagogues. The nerve of a group of people who have practiced racial segregation for two thousand years to denounce other people (whom the Jews have out-grouped) having their own clubs.

    From personal experience I would estimate the absolute upper end on West Coast-based Jews who intensely follow Israel news is 1 out of 8, of these mostly owing to having a relative over there. This group would actually be somewhat up-to-date on M.E. flashpoints with relatively informed opinions about the political horse races in Jerusalem. The other 87% might have nascent Zionism sympathy, backed by scant recent knowledge (post-Munich Olympics). They know zip about the ’82 Lebanon war. They sort of remember Camp David II. They remember Yitzhak Perlman getting assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in the Ambassador Hotel ballroom, by getting pushed off the dais in his wheelchair — something something, you know, etc.

    Steve bitterly compares it USC football supporters which is a preposterous analogy — a Trojan superfan knows they went 11-3 and can tell Clay Helton from Clay Matthews. Few U.S. Jews (or gentiles) are more than noncommittal Israel backers because it’s foreign and boring to them. What they actually do exhibit as a group, is unthinking reflexive 1960s Civilrights liberalism.

    ' "Racism Is a Problem of White Elites, and Kris Kobach Proves It"'

    To anyone who is aware of racial tensions and hostility between blacks and Asians, between blacks and Hispanics, and between Asians and Hispanics -- not to mention various intra-mural hostilities -- the quoted passage is simply bizarre.

    Perhaps ironically, there is one thing that regardless of political persuasion, most whites seem to fail to grasp about racism: it's not all about them.

    One thing it establishes conclusively is that despite the endless anti-white racism in this country from Africans, Asians, and Latinos, some of the very worst is coming from nominal whites such as this guy.

    'One thing it establishes conclusively is that despite the endless anti-white racism in this country from Africans, Asians, and Latinos...'

    Blacks certainly pump out plenty of hate. As to Latinos, and even more Asians, what anti-white racism there is usually comes from figures who are largely proteges of the white media in the first place. That absurd Korean woman the NYT hired is a good example. Her opinions are no more representative of that of most Koreans than mine would be.

    This isn't to say that Latinos, et al aren't racist towards whites. They are -- but in the same mild way many of us are racist towards them. 'Honey, are you really sure it's a good idea to start dating ____?'

    This is nothing new. It's part of the human condition -- but entirely distinct from the sort of nonsense the media promotes and the often unbelievable savagery of many elements in our black population.

    I don't think Dylan Matthews (who as far as I know isn't Jewish) cares that much about that. It's just a handy thing to reach for. Jews in America never faced the legal restrictions of countries with established churches (not that most American journalists tend to know much about other countries or the pre-modern world), so there's basically restricted golf clubs, Ivy League quotas (which you don't want to talk too much about if you're worried someone might compare their current discrimination against Asians) and Leo Frank if you want to fit them into a whiggish narrative of racial progress. And given the far larger number of blacks who were lynched (not to mention the larger number of Italians, which hardly anybody is even aware of), you can't just refer to Frank that many times. The "How [European ethnics] Became White" story has become a broadly accepted narrative which fits the conventional wisdom of race being a social construct. There's only so many examples you can give to fit it.

    The so-called “Jewish Quota” at Harvard, according to Jerome Karabel, drastically cut the Jewish contingent of Harvard’s student body from 10 times its proportion of the general population in the 1920s all the way down to 4 times in the 1930s. This, of course, laid the groundwork for the Holocaust (according to Jack D anyway) and the over-representation thereafter quickly resumed the 10x factor it still enjoys today. So who’s going to move aside to make more room for Asians? Just kidding.

    There was a time in the 1930's I believe when Jews were over 3.5% of the population.

    My yearbook collection contains a couple Harvard annuals from 1927 and 1931, if I recall correctly. The class of '31 was still about 1/6 Jewish. There were three or four blacks.

    Jackson had shattered the National Republican Party with his victories in 1828 and 1832. His war against the Second Bank of the United States and his opposition to nullification in South Carolina, however, allowed Henry Clay to bring fiscal conservatives and southern states’ rights proponents together in a coalition

    You left out this part after the word "coalition":

    "...with those who still believed in the National Republican program of a protective tariff and federally financed internal improvements. "

    Jackson was enough of an advocate of decentralized power to wage war on the Second Bank of the United States and enough of an advocate of centralized power to oppose nullification. Clay represented a party that as a successor to the National Republicans had at least a faction that believed in centralized power (high tariffs and government financed internal improvements) but also appealed to some fiscal conservatives and states rights advocates.

    Then as now these things were not always crystal clear. Jackson was a warmonger and in this he foreshadowed "Progressive" warmongers such as Teddy roosevelt.

    Anon 358, that is an inapt comparison. In New England in Year of our Lord 1758, if there was a job opening for someone fluent in Hebrew, a son of Abraham’s tribe was probably the only practical choice. It was not a matter of sticking to a stereotype or to “surface level” traits.

    Harvard probably wanted the Jewish faculty hire to produce a Harvard-branded English language translation of the Old Testament, perhaps with some glosses added to appeal to genteel Congregationalists. That’s my guesstimate anyway.

    When I was still a cover-to-cover National Review reader, I asked James Kurth why he didn't write for NR, and he laughed at me.

    Kurth was a Huntington protege and might have been redpilling students long before redpilling was a thing if he had gotten tenure at a different school.

    One of the things he said in class to amuse himself was that, if California had a massive earthquake, "all the nuts and fruits would fall into the ocean."

    It's actually hard to believe he wasn't fired at some point.

    Chrisnonymous:

    The reason Kurth wasn’t fired was the same reason Prof Emeritus Robert Weissberg gave me why he ever got tenure: it was a long time ago. Although chronologically only a few decades, politically it was an eternity.

Additionally, you need to refer to private K-12 schools not private colleges as the way hypocritical white liberals avoid minorities. This is very common for liberal academics in MA who live in Cambridge or Brookline. California is much more representative for what you're describing or you could just refer to the generic Northeast.

He portrayed a bunched of sistas fighting racist robot cops in a stereotypical version of 70s Harlem set in the present. He even used "mayonnaise" as a subtle racial jab (didn't see any Becky's, though). There are a couple of YouTube channels that covered it.

    But while there’s some survey data backing the idea that working-class whites are likelier to harbor racial resentment (see table 3 here), the racism that kept Jews and black people out of country clubs
     
    Dunno. I tend to think that during the Jim Crow era Blacks had more pressing concerns than getting into the right country club....

    (and out of Harvard) for generations is still around. And Kobach is a great example of how it can continue to have real political consequences.
     
    Yeah. I mean only approx 10% of the students at Harvard in the 1930s were Jewish....

    Two decades later, he authored Who Are We?, a book arguing that America’s Protestant culture was being eroded by Latino immigrants; the white nationalist Richard Spencer has cited the book as a key influence.
     
    Huntington defined the USA as an Anglo-Protestant country in that book....And it's kinda hard to argue with that characterization...

    To be clear, many people went through Harvard, read and took classes with Huntington, and did not wind up being anything remotely like Kris Kobach. (The Atlantic’s James Fallows was one.) Huntington was not a sort of racist Midas touch, where you take a class and come away wanting to deport Muslims.
     
    I'm not saying that we have to keep an eye on everyone that he taught....or who read Who Are We?

    Kobach isn’t alone. White House adviser Stephen Miller
     
    Should I mention that he's Jewish? Nah, don't want to muddy the waters....

    didn’t have a Huntington figure during his time at Duke; in all the profiles written about Miller, I’ve yet to find one that mentions a professor who mentored him or even liked him.
     
    And yet he somehow managed to figure out that maybe Latinx immigration was not good for Anglo-America....

    Id understood Richard Spencer was his, “Huntington figure” or did that not really sell well.

    Another example of the totalitarian impulses of this freak of nature is shown in this quote from the aforementioned article:
    “Harvard not only didn’t stop [Kobach] but helped give him the social prestige and power to carry out his mission. Indeed, if anything Harvard seems to have helped Kobach find and develop his brand of racism. Kobach’s main mentor at Harvard was Samuel Huntington. ”

    If Crystal Mangum had accused the U. of North Carolina basketball team of gang rape, it would have been just like in Wolfe's "A Man in Full" with the entire state's establishment, white and black, coming together to figure out a way to make this thing go away before it becomes a scandal, much like the Jameis Winston rape allegation at Florida St.

    In Vox, Dylan Matthews belittled Steven Miller for his role in exposing those at Duke who sung along to D.A. Nifong’s rape hoax: “… the Duke lacrosse scandal [was] a scandal that became a national affair only because of Duke’s elite status…”

    Matthews is right, per Sailer’s Comment #39: “If Crystal Mangum had accused the UNC basketball team of gang rape… the entire state’s establishment, white and black, [would have come] together to figure out a way to make this thing go away before it becomes a scandal…”

    The dynamic is at work in another of this week’s iSteve headlines. Last night’s DNC Evening News (CBS-TV branch) reported on the police chief’s son and showed the punch-kick-spit performance, even going so far as to flash a mug shot that was male, but not pale or stale. Judging from the voice-overs, the cause of the attack was a mystery wrapped inside an enigma, a puzzling case of a boy from a good family going rogue.

    Fortunately for Mr. Matthews, this scandal is unlikely to become much of a national affair, given Tyrone’s lack of the necessary status and privilege. Well, as Steve reminds us, the US is a big country, and we can bide our time until the right kind of criminal appears, so the right lessons can be taught and learned.

    It's a bit of historical revisionism on Dylan Matthews part regarding Steven Miller's role in the scandal at Duke. I followed the incident by daily reading Brooklyn College professor KC Johnson's blog "Durham in Wonderland." Johnson, and journalist Stuart Taylor, both liberals, wrote the book, literally, on the scandal: "Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Case." In a 400+ page book, with a 14-page Index (1,000+ subjects, each with one to dozens of entries), Miller gets 5 mentions.

    The NYT? 46 mentions.

    The miscarriage of justice became a national scandal because people like Johnson and Taylor (among others, including Miller) pushed back against The Narrative--the tide of elite opinion makers.

    I'm not saying Miller didn't play a role in exposing the actual scandal of injustice carried out against the lacrosse team--merely Matthews then-memory as a 16-year old is (more than) slightly warped.

    It is the horrible hacks in the Republican Party and the Democrat Party who are attacking Kris Kobach. The horrible hacks, and the donors who fund their spots in the media and elective office, still have a stranglehold on the corporate media and the Republican Party and the Democrat Party.

    Remember, Kris Kobach is on the front lines of the fight for a patriotic immigration policy that puts the interests of the American people and America First. The horrible hacks went as far as to harass Kris Kobach’s family at Kobach’s house. If I remember correctly, this hack attack on Kobach was made even more vile by the fact that Kobach was not at home to defend his wife and family at the time.

    "Harvard stereotypes Jews so much that when they finally hired one in 1722, they made him teach Hebrew."

    The left still does that kind of thing. The comic book industry around 2012 - when they went politically correct - started hiring people to write characters based on matching surface-level traits: "you're gay, so write this gay character; you're black, so write all the black stuff."

    I don’t see the problem with that at all as long as they’re

    a) insisting that people of “dominant groups” write characters from “dominant groups”

    b) keeping characters from “dominant” groups in proportion to their numbers in the population

    I mean when leftists lecture us about how men don’t know what it’s like to be a woman and whites don’t know what it’s like to be black, etc, they’re right. The problem of course is that they stop there. Blacks, of course, do not know what being white is like, and women do not know what it’s like to be a man. But (((leftists))) insist that people from “oppressed groups” have total and accurate insight into the experiences of “privileged” people while the converse is not true. That explains why Hillary was not widely called out for tweeting in 2016 that “white people need to do a better job of listening to people of color” without also calling on colored people to listen more to white people (something our country desperately needs*).

    *If all of us white people who have been harassed by the police for trivial stuff had our voices valued, this whole “Beckies need to stop calling the cops on black people” meme might die.

    Actually, this particular mini-era might be a great opportunity for a bit of virtuous trolling. Just go on an all out attack on the smug New England racists in their expensive gated communities and expensive private colleges who spare no cost to stay away from blacks. Latinxos hate them because they sit in the shade and complain while Pedro labors in the sun. Blacks hate them, even their potted Ivy League blacks hate them. And rightfully! Then these racist dirtbags move to Race Francisco to experience 100% whiteness. Whitey on their own racist Silicon Valley moon.

    I think it's possible to go on like this for a while, just think back on iSteve and let go. Remember, if they complain, their white fragility is showing.

    I live in New England and, can’t speak for CT, but the rest of New England does not have gated communities. If there are some, they are very, very few. Additionally, you need to refer to private K-12 schools not private colleges as the way hypocritical white liberals avoid minorities. This is very common for liberal academics in MA who live in Cambridge or Brookline. California is much more representative for what you’re describing or you could just refer to the generic Northeast. Progressive blue states/cities would work, too.

    Just like many feminists appear (as Sailer has noted) to be women whose primary motivation is to upend our culture to make themselves more attractive, it seems like Matthews and a fair number of prominent male leftist writers are low-T guys whose above-average IQ is the only thing they have going for them. The herd mentality they have is also – in my opinion – a derivative of feeling personally powerless.

    Why is it fashionable? It's kind of an insane thing to keep bringing up if you don't actually care about it.

    Does Matthew Weiner of "Mad Men" think to himself, "Actually, I don't care at all that there were only 3 all-Jewish country clubs for my parents to belong to -- Hillcrest, Brentwood, and El Caballero -- but I just emphasize in interviews how my parents weren't invited to join Wilshire CC as a sneaky way to appeal to People of Color. There's nothing that People of Color care more about than old stories about one set of rich white people not getting into another set of rich white people's golf clubs!"

    Maybe they don’t really care but it’s the only example of White evil and wrongdoing they can find. That, and capping Jewish enrollment at (traditionally Christian) Harvard at 10%,or 10X the Jewish share of the general population.

    One thing it establishes conclusively is that despite the endless anti-white racism in this country from Africans, Asians, and Latinos, some of the very worst is coming from nominal whites such as this guy.

    ‘One thing it establishes conclusively is that despite the endless anti-white racism in this country from Africans, Asians, and Latinos…’

    Blacks certainly pump out plenty of hate. As to Latinos, and even more Asians, what anti-white racism there is usually comes from figures who are largely proteges of the white media in the first place. That absurd Korean woman the NYT hired is a good example. Her opinions are no more representative of that of most Koreans than mine would be.

    This isn’t to say that Latinos, et al aren’t racist towards whites. They are — but in the same mild way many of us are racist towards them. ‘Honey, are you really sure it’s a good idea to start dating ____?’

    This is nothing new. It’s part of the human condition — but entirely distinct from the sort of nonsense the media promotes and the often unbelievable savagery of many elements in our black population.

    Sailer, I give you a lot of shit, much of which is well-deserved, but I really have a lot of respect for your capacity to write about this stuff without coming off as frothing-at-the-mouth. This stuff really does make my blood boil.

    "We have an unfortunate tendency to treat racism as a pathology of the white working class."

    I won't type out my initial reaction for fear of The Whim™, so a cleaner version is "who the heck are we, lovely members of a wonderful, angelic, eternally-misunderstood and senselessly-resented tribe?"

    ” but I really have a lot of respect for your capacity to write about this stuff without coming off as frothing-at-the-mouth.”

    Then you must have glossed over this nugget when our host said, “Vox is offended that the late Samuel Huntington, an American elite with roots deep in America’s founding stock who was proud of his people’s accomplishments in building America, merely existed.”

    I suppose he crafted that sentence in response to counter Matthews’ boiler plate special of “But economically unprivileged whites typically don’t cause damage on the scale of Miller or Kobach — or even Spencer or Taylor. That escalation requires elite credentials and connections.” I

    t’s called one-upsmanship between race hustlers for hackneyed language.

    And you probably glanced over this tidbit when our host said, “Naive people don’t believe me when I point out how much of the resentful worldview of so many of our media elites in 2018 is inspired in substantial part by the outrage they continue to nurse over family stories of how great-grandpa couldn’t get into, say, the Los Angeles Country Club in 1922 so he had to co-found the Hillcrest Country Club.”

    The uncomfortable reality is that the people are not naive, and they are not buying into his overblown generalization, as they are fully cognizant of their own NOTICING.

    In Vox, Dylan Matthews belittled Steven Miller for his role in exposing those at Duke who sung along to D.A. Nifong's rape hoax: "... the Duke lacrosse scandal [was] a scandal that became a national affair only because of Duke’s elite status..."

    Matthews is right, per Sailer's Comment #39: "If Crystal Mangum had accused the UNC basketball team of gang rape... the entire state’s establishment, white and black, [would have come] together to figure out a way to make this thing go away before it becomes a scandal..."

    The dynamic is at work in another of this week's iSteve headlines. Last night's DNC Evening News (CBS-TV branch) reported on the police chief's son and showed the punch-kick-spit performance, even going so far as to flash a mug shot that was male, but not pale or stale. Judging from the voice-overs, the cause of the attack was a mystery wrapped inside an enigma, a puzzling case of a boy from a good family going rogue.

    Fortunately for Mr. Matthews, this scandal is unlikely to become much of a national affair, given Tyrone's lack of the necessary status and privilege. Well, as Steve reminds us, the US is a big country, and we can bide our time until the right kind of criminal appears, so the right lessons can be taught and learned.

    It’s a bit of historical revisionism on Dylan Matthews part regarding Steven Miller’s role in the scandal at Duke. I followed the incident by daily reading Brooklyn College professor KC Johnson’s blog “Durham in Wonderland.” Johnson, and journalist Stuart Taylor, both liberals, wrote the book, literally, on the scandal: “Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Case.” In a 400+ page book, with a 14-page Index (1,000+ subjects, each with one to dozens of entries), Miller gets 5 mentions.

    The NYT? 46 mentions.

    The miscarriage of justice became a national scandal because people like Johnson and Taylor (among others, including Miller) pushed back against The Narrative–the tide of elite opinion makers.

    I’m not saying Miller didn’t play a role in exposing the actual scandal of injustice carried out against the lacrosse team–merely Matthews then-memory as a 16-year old is (more than) slightly warped.

    True enough that Miller was not one of the pivotal figures of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax/Frame. KC Johnson was one such, on the side of Due Process, The Importance of Logic & Factual Evidence, and the like. The NYT was in the batting order for the Narrative, "Let's Come Together To Ruin The White Rapists' Lives." Joined, as you know, by Duke's faculty ("Group of 88") and Administration.

    Still: Steven Miller was one of the very, very few in the Duke "community" who publicly took a stand on the side of the framed players. That's to his great credit.

Why are they able to do this? Even other "social media savvy" venues still make a pretense of getting scoops, if for no reason than to stave off boredom maybe -- Buzzfeed for all its horrific faults occasionally features a real investigative expose on something! But at Vox you have to be the ultimate millennial smoothie in terms of boredom acclimation. Lots of D.C. bozo opinion writers are parochial and only read each other's blogs, but only Vox aspires to this bizarre David Broder/David Gergen ideal of "to report is human, to dumb it down is divine"

    Parent Vox Media owns 8 web sites, including vox.com. They also own The Verge where Sarah Jeong was hired from. NBCUniversal invested $200 million for a 20% stake. Previous fund raising rounds exceeded $100 million. Advertising platforms need click-bait content, promoters need vanity projects to justify their pay package, private equity money needs “buzz” to report to their investors.

    There isn’t an asian cap. Asian undergraduate enrollment rose when you consider all the “decline to state” people plus foreign Asians.

    Also don’t forget that Asians were far more numerous at Harvard than IQ median of 106 would predict. The children of the elite Chinese fleeing Mao and left wing nationalists in SE Asia who were admitted to Harvard at a higher rate in the 80s and 90s are a higher IQ bunch than the current cohort of Chinese Americans who are the children of economic migrants.

    Amy Chua’s giant-brained father was a lot more representative of the first cohort of postwar Chinese migration than the past 20 years, which was mostly a mix of chain migration and illegals who went to work in sweatshop type employment.

    The so-called "Jewish Quota" at Harvard, according to Jerome Karabel, drastically cut the Jewish contingent of Harvard's student body from 10 times its proportion of the general population in the 1920s all the way down to 4 times in the 1930s. This, of course, laid the groundwork for the Holocaust (according to Jack D anyway) and the over-representation thereafter quickly resumed the 10x factor it still enjoys today. So who's going to move aside to make more room for Asians? Just kidding.

    There was a time in the 1930′s I believe when Jews were over 3.5% of the population.

    Has any Jew given a better take on American anti-Semitism in the 20th century than Noam Chomsky?

    This is from 1992:

    CHOMSKY: Anti-Semitism has changed, during my lifetime at least. Where I grew up we were virtually the only Jewish family, I think there was one other. Of course being the only Jewish family in a largely Irish-Catholic and German-Catholic community–

    QUESTION: In Philadelphia?

    CHOMSKY: In Philadelphia. And the anti-Semitism was very real. There were certain paths I could take to walk to the store without getting beaten up. It was the late 1930s and the area was openly pro-Nazi. I remember beer parties when Paris fell and things like that. It’s not like living under Hitler, but it’s a very unpleasant thing. There was a really rabid anti-Semitism in that neighborhood where I grew up as a kid and it continued. By the time I got to Harvard in the early 1950s there was still very detectable anti-Semitism. It wasn’t that they beat you up on the way to school or something, but other ways, kind of WASP-ish anti-Semitism. There were very few Jewish professors on the faculty at that time. There was beginning to be a scattering of them, but still very few. This was the tail end of a long time of WASP-ish anti-Semitism at the elite institutions. Over the last thirty years that’s changed very radically. Anti-Semitism undoubtedly exists, but it’s now on a par, in my view, with other kinds of prejudice of all sorts. I don’t think it’s more than anti-Italianism or anti-Irishism, and that’s been a very significant change in the last generation, one that I’ve experienced myself in my own life, and it’s very visible throughout the society.

    So since Vox writers have been alive it essentially doesn’t exist in America where Chomsky has noted elsewhere Jews are “highly privileged.”

    The Harvard stuff they all cry about is described with wry humor by Chomsky (he was part of the super elite Junior Fellows program where they were required to attend dinner parties, etc.)

    "For instance, I remember there was a lot of anglophilia at Harvard at the
    time -you were supposed to wear British clothes, and pretend you spoke
    with a British accent, that sort of stuff. In fact, there were actually guys
    there who I thought were British, who had never been outside of the United States.

    If any of you have studied literature or history or something, you
    might recognize some of this, those are the places you usually find it. Well,
    somehow I managed to survive that, I don’t know how exactly-but most
    didn’t. And what I discovered is that a large part of education at the really
    elite institutions is simply refinement, teaching the social graces: what kind of clothes you should wear, how to drink port the right way, how to have polite conversation without talking about serious topics, but of course indicating that you could talk about serious topics if you were so vulgar as to actually do it, all kinds of things which an intellectual is supposed to know how to do. And that was really the main point of the program, I think.”

    But again, as he points out, this was already on the way out--in 1950. Steve Hsu, eg, was a Junior Fellow. Obviously by his time nobody expected you to pretend we were having a British aristocrat salon.

    I call BS on that.

    Also, witness Chomsky's ethnic aggression, hypocrisy, and divide and conquer tactics on full display. He wails about "anti-Semitism" of the English while glibly slurring them as "WASPs." He then goes on to smear them as "anti-Intian" and "anti-Irish."

    What a little twerp.

Especially when it is so obvious that Chomsky is highly ethnocentric and is engaged here in his tribe's usual antics of endeavorimg to discredit rival groups.

    The Chinese flooded the market with window ACs for $89 to 99 about 10 years ago. Now the cheapest ones I see are about $170 for the same compact 5000 to 7000 BTU models. Inflation was only about 25% this period, but prices nearly doubled.

    The big thing now is the room-sized split-system types by Mitsubishi. I’d seen them first in China. The big difference is that only the evaporator is inside the room, so they are extremely quiet. You’ve got to make holes to the outside for each room though, to connect the refrigerant to the outside condenser(s)/compresser(s).

    Inflation was only about 25% this period, but prices nearly doubled.

    Ha, that sounds funny the way you wrote it, but is truer than the way you meant it. It IS the same with about everything, as I just got done writing about. You mean, the Feral Gov’t SAID inflation was about 25% during this period.

    It's a bit of historical revisionism on Dylan Matthews part regarding Steven Miller's role in the scandal at Duke. I followed the incident by daily reading Brooklyn College professor KC Johnson's blog "Durham in Wonderland." Johnson, and journalist Stuart Taylor, both liberals, wrote the book, literally, on the scandal: "Until Proven Innocent: Political Correctness and the Shameful Injustices of the Duke Lacrosse Case." In a 400+ page book, with a 14-page Index (1,000+ subjects, each with one to dozens of entries), Miller gets 5 mentions.

    The NYT? 46 mentions.

    The miscarriage of justice became a national scandal because people like Johnson and Taylor (among others, including Miller) pushed back against The Narrative--the tide of elite opinion makers.

    I'm not saying Miller didn't play a role in exposing the actual scandal of injustice carried out against the lacrosse team--merely Matthews then-memory as a 16-year old is (more than) slightly warped.

    True enough that Miller was not one of the pivotal figures of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax/Frame. KC Johnson was one such, on the side of Due Process, The Importance of Logic & Factual Evidence, and the like. The NYT was in the batting order for the Narrative, “Let’s Come Together To Ruin The White Rapists’ Lives.” Joined, as you know, by Duke’s faculty (“Group of 88″) and Administration.

    Still: Steven Miller was one of the very, very few in the Duke “community” who publicly took a stand on the side of the framed players. That’s to his great credit.

    One other thing. You can't grow up being a total physical loser like they did, without it seriously messing with their minds and world view.

    And the reality is, their lack of any apparent engagement in the physical world, whether by labor, exercise, sport, competition, or hobby means they are simply devoid of a significant part of society and the culture at-large–blind to it. Literally crippled for that aspect of life by a form of tunnel vision. Their lack of self-awareness in this regard is glaring…

    From personal experience I would estimate the absolute upper end on West Coast-based Jews who intensely follow Israel news is 1 out of 8, of these mostly owing to having a relative over there. This group would actually be somewhat up-to-date on M.E. flashpoints with relatively informed opinions about the political horse races in Jerusalem. The other 87% might have nascent Zionism sympathy, backed by scant recent knowledge (post-Munich Olympics). They know zip about the '82 Lebanon war. They sort of remember Camp David II. They remember Yitzhak Perlman getting assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan in the Ambassador Hotel ballroom, by getting pushed off the dais in his wheelchair -- something something, you know, etc.

    Steve bitterly compares it USC football supporters which is a preposterous analogy -- a Trojan superfan knows they went 11-3 and can tell Clay Helton from Clay Matthews. Few U.S. Jews (or gentiles) are more than noncommittal Israel backers because it's foreign and boring to them. What they actually do exhibit as a group, is unthinking reflexive 1960s Civilrights liberalism. You don't have to remember any names and dates for that; it's just a fad style you can pick up from the culture by osmosis.

    It was founded in America, but it was founded by Salvadorans. No Salvadorans, no MS 13. Sounds like a problem with an origin in El Salvador to me.

    MS-13 is here, so it is an American problem. That it arose to defend Salvadorans from Bloods and Crips and other inner city “challenges,” and also take on other “new business opportunities” just as the Mafia/La Cosa Nostra did in their neighborhoods still points to immigration.

The original naming rights (thanks for the link--I'd forgotten how small it was) occurred in the late '70s when Carrier had a substantial presence (employment) in the area.

    The funny thing is Dylan Matthews looks like that in all his photos (google him if you don't believe me).

    Another example of the totalitarian impulses of this freak of nature is shown in this quote from the aforementioned article:
    "Harvard not only didn’t stop [Kobach] but helped give him the social prestige and power to carry out his mission. Indeed, if anything Harvard seems to have helped Kobach find and develop his brand of racism. Kobach’s main mentor at Harvard was Samuel Huntington. "

    Yes, Harvard (like Heritage) should have a blacklist against all "racists"

    Heritage is the creep in the Richwine situation. Former Senator Jim DeMint became president in 2012, and obviously didn’t back up Richwine who resigned in 2013.

    Richwine’s dissertation committee was composed of economist Richard Zeckhauser, economist George Borjas, and Christopher Jencks, the social scientist and editor of The American Prospect.

    The Whigs were successors to the Federalists and predecessors of the Republicans. The Democrats were the States Rights party from 1787 to the 1930s.
     
    Ok, you know more than Encyclopedia Britannica I guess, can I access Encyclopedia Hibernian online directly or just via iSteve comments?

    Jackson had shattered the National Republican Party with his victories in 1828 and 1832. His war against the Second Bank of the United States and his opposition to nullification in South Carolina, however, allowed Henry Clay to bring fiscal conservatives and southern states’ rights proponents together in a coalition
     
    https://www.britannica.com/topic/Whig-Party

    You left out this part after the word “coalition”:

    “…with those who still believed in the National Republican program of a protective tariff and federally financed internal improvements. ”

    Jackson was enough of an advocate of decentralized power to wage war on the Second Bank of the United States and enough of an advocate of centralized power to oppose nullification. Clay represented a party that as a successor to the National Republicans had at least a faction that believed in centralized power (high tariffs and government financed internal improvements) but also appealed to some fiscal conservatives and states rights advocates.

    Then as now these things were not always crystal clear. Jackson was a warmonger and in this he foreshadowed “Progressive” warmongers such as Teddy roosevelt.

Do antiwhite goyim drones really outnumber antiwhite Jews by an order of magnitude among people who hold the Megaphone, that is among people who craft the narrative or control the purse strings?

    CHOMSKY: Anti-Semitism has changed, during my lifetime at least. Where I grew up we were virtually the only Jewish family, I think there was one other. Of course being the only Jewish family in a largely Irish-Catholic and German-Catholic community–

    QUESTION: In Philadelphia?

    CHOMSKY: In Philadelphia. And the anti-Semitism was very real. There were certain paths I could take to walk to the store without getting beaten up. It was the late 1930s and the area was openly pro-Nazi. I remember beer parties when Paris fell and things like that. It’s not like living under Hitler, but it’s a very unpleasant thing. There was a really rabid anti-Semitism in that neighborhood where I grew up as a kid and it continued. By the time I got to Harvard in the early 1950s there was still very detectable anti-Semitism. It wasn’t that they beat you up on the way to school or something, but other ways, kind of WASP-ish anti-Semitism. There were very few Jewish professors on the faculty at that time. There was beginning to be a scattering of them, but still very few. This was the tail end of a long time of WASP-ish anti-Semitism at the elite institutions. Over the last thirty years that’s changed very radically. Anti-Semitism undoubtedly exists, but it’s now on a par, in my view, with other kinds of prejudice of all sorts. I don’t think it’s more than anti-Italianism or anti-Irishism, and that’s been a very significant change in the last generation, one that I’ve experienced myself in my own life, and it’s very visible throughout the society.
     
    So since Vox writers have been alive it essentially doesn't exist in America where Chomsky has noted elsewhere Jews are "highly privileged."

    I call BS on that.

    Also, witness Chomsky’s ethnic aggression, hypocrisy, and divide and conquer tactics on full display. He wails about “anti-Semitism” of the English while glibly slurring them as “WASPs.” He then goes on to smear them as “anti-Intian” and “anti-Irish.”

    What a little twerp.

    This stuff is so obviously transparent in hindsight. Just playbook Jewish passive-aggression.

    The Harvard stuff they all cry about is described with wry humor by Chomsky (he was part of the super elite Junior Fellows program where they were required to attend dinner parties, etc.)

    "For instance, I remember there was a lot of anglophilia at Harvard at the
    time -you were supposed to wear British clothes, and pretend you spoke
    with a British accent, that sort of stuff. In fact, there were actually guys
    there who I thought were British, who had never been outside of the United States.

    If any of you have studied literature or history or something, you
    might recognize some of this, those are the places you usually find it. Well,
    somehow I managed to survive that, I don’t know how exactly-but most
    didn’t. And what I discovered is that a large part of education at the really
    elite institutions is simply refinement, teaching the social graces: what kind of clothes you should wear, how to drink port the right way, how to have polite conversation without talking about serious topics, but of course indicating that you could talk about serious topics if you were so vulgar as to actually do it, all kinds of things which an intellectual is supposed to know how to do. And that was really the main point of the program, I think.”

    But again, as he points out, this was already on the way out--in 1950. Steve Hsu, eg, was a Junior Fellow. Obviously by his time nobody expected you to pretend we were having a British aristocrat salon.

    But again, as he points out, this was already on the way out–in 1950.

    “As he points out.” I love how you just take everything he says on faith. Especially when it is so obvious that Chomsky is highly ethnocentric and is engaged here in his tribe’s usual antics of endeavorimg to discredit rival groups. How about a lampoon of Jews identifying with ancient Hebrews or engaging in ludicrous even barbaric rituals? You know, “wry humor.” Nevahhh.

    He–and they–are very good at discrediting. I will give you that. They have toppled and destroyed the English people of America.

    You left out this part after the word "coalition":

    "...with those who still believed in the National Republican program of a protective tariff and federally financed internal improvements. "

    Jackson was enough of an advocate of decentralized power to wage war on the Second Bank of the United States and enough of an advocate of centralized power to oppose nullification. Clay represented a party that as a successor to the National Republicans had at least a faction that believed in centralized power (high tariffs and government financed internal improvements) but also appealed to some fiscal conservatives and states rights advocates.

    Then as now these things were not always crystal clear. Jackson was a warmonger and in this he foreshadowed "Progressive" warmongers such as Teddy roosevelt.

    LOL! Maybe Ron would host you on Unz.org? God knows we need more people who remember the “ae” in encyclopaedia.

    And that, all you silent observers out there, is how you stay off Stan’s “ignore commenter” list. Why do so many take this so seriously? Autism much? Sometimes it feels like an Aspergers conference in these threads. Besides, consider the aesthetics. Are we here for cognitive anaesthesia? Minds aren’t anaerobic, laughter helps oxygenate the brain people!

    Spike Lee opposes race-mixing
     
    Citation?

    Spike Lee said many times that blacks should stick together. His Jungle Fever movie was about how it’s not a good idea. His father publicly attacked him and said the movie is about him leaving Spike’s mother for a white woman.

    I knew someone in NY who met Lee at a restaurant. Lee saw some black woman with a white guy, and when they were alone, he told her she shouldn’t be dating whites. Friend tells me that she was appalled by Lee being so ugly and repulsive telling her shit.
