Walked Right Into That One

Roger Cohen opinionizes in the New York Times:

Immigration is a challenge but also a measure of the confidence of a society, its preparedness for self-renewal. That confidence is low in America right now. “The dignity of a person is untouchable” — so begins Germany’s postwar Constitution, with words drawn from bitter experience. Merkel has shown the conviction that this idea can eventually be absorbed by everyone now in Germany. She will be vindicated.

“The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne.

    Investigators believe Miss Olsen met him in the early hours of the morning last Friday after leaving a nightclub, the Montecarla.

    The pair walked back to her flat in Via Santa Monica and had consensual sex, possibly under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

    But a furious argument developed after Miss Olsen told him he had to leave the apartment because her Italian boyfriend was about to arrive.

    Diaw became enraged, accusing her of treating him “like a dog.”
     
    And then he killed her and stole her phone and switched the SIM card in it. I can't imagine what would be running through my mind if I killed someone, even accidently.

    Surgeon General is a completely pointless and useless position, like Postmaster General. It probably made sense back in the 19th century when the medical practice involved lots of travelling doctors and surgeons carrying around saws in their briefcases, just like how post offices were a really big deal back then.
    , @Diversity Heretic
    In glancing at the most recent surgeon generals, it appears that the position has been occupied by minorities (including the execrable Jocelyn Elders). But I'd be careful. As head of the Public Health Service (the 5th uniformed service) the Surgeon General could be very influential in the public health measures neessary to combat communicable diseases. The 2014 ebola epidemic, in which the U.S. failed to impose travel ban and quarantine restrictions that other African countries were imposing on travelers from areas where ebola was present, shows how politicized such decisions can be. Imagine a particularly virulent strain of tuberculosis or influenza originating in Africa or even southern Asia. And if the disease started spreading within the United States--read accounts of the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic for a taste of how bad things can get, even with fairly modern medicine. Give me a hard-nosed white guy making the travel ban and quarantine restrictions!

    “The dignity of a person is untouchable” — so begins Germany’s postwar Constitution, with words drawn from bitter experience.

    Intellectual elites are behaving the way they are because they think it will extinguish the idea behind WWII. Human dignity can only be protected it’s felt if all racial groups are the same. But if Nordic types are the highest achieving Europeans, how can human dignity be ensured?

    By opening the gates to a mixed race German people, Angela Merkel and many German intellectual elites believe they can permanently relinquish the potential for racial supremacy and conquest and Germany will be better after this is done.

    This is the idea driving what is happening. What is NOT driving what is happening is a few dumbasses and NGOs earning millions of dollars from refugee related business contracts or German business interests asked for this kind of deluge of cheap labor (they haven’t). Most comments though are directed at these sources as the cause.

    Unlikely that most german women -- especially educated ones -- would want to mate with a 80 IQ syrian; their hot-headedness is diamterically opposed to native german's meeknesss. Arabs aren't hard-working either. It's mostly german women with litte or average education that are doing this, or ones that are very young. Reading elitepartner.de really opens your eyes of what a german educated woman looks for in a man, and muslims certainly don't factor in here.

    It's more likely there will be a new underclass -- Unterschicht -- that is composed of mostly blacks and muslims and a few mixed-race victims who will be torn between two identities which results in less well-being, as evidenced that most african-german or muslim-german children are miserable SJWs that see Germany as racist, yet they don't leave for their african or muslim paradise. Obama also has a pathological hate for whites. Most muslims marry their cousins or at least from the same race anyway, as their holy scriptures requires them to do. I also don't think german educated women would want uneducated and misbehaving parents-in-law. Remember: muslims have YUGE families, as a white german you're the misfit there. It will be an awkward experience; I remember being the only german kid in my schoolfriend's huge turkish family: I was watched with suspicion and contempt.

    I think it's best to deport them instead.

    An alternative to immigration insurance is an immigration bond of $200,000.

    Before entering the nation, the immigrant must buy an immigration bond.

    After the immigrant leaves the nation, his money will be returned to him, less the cost of his:
    - Crime
    - Medical care
    - Children


    Many immigrants come from clannish cultures where people have intense loyalty to their clan, but no loyalty to broader society.

    Immigration bonds are useful for managing high-risk immigrants from clannish cultures:

    - An immigrant will borrow money from his clan to buy an immigration bond.

    - If the immigrant commits a crime, the cost of his imprisonment is subtracted from his immigration bond, resulting in his clan losing their money.

    - Therefore, an immigration bond will cause an immigrant’s clan to intensely pressure the immigrant to not commit crime.

    “Because Hitler.” That is the rationale for everything. But in a Twelve Monkeys style loop of counter-intended prophecy, the Germans are creating a situation in which domestic WWII measures are inevitable.

    Some German leftist rag is pointing out that it is all but impossible to deport these asylum seekers, no matter what crimes they have committed.

    http://www.thelocal.de/20160111/refugees-shouldnt-be-deported-for-sex-crimes

    Okay, so what can be done with them? Well, they can be sent to prison. Germany could build hundreds of new prisons to house these middle-eastern criminals. How to pay for it? Make them into work camps.

    Then there is the fact that Merkel is undoubtedly creating another Hitler as we speak. Adolf Hitler became the man he was mostly because he saw the new German government mistreating the German people. He saw the Versailles Treaty as a betrayal to the sacrifices of Germans in WWI. And what was the first major international action he took as Chancellor? Claiming of the Sudetenland- under the pretext of oppression against its ethnic German denizens, with rape specifically identified as a problem.

    Before his rise, Hitler and the National Socialists were forced to hold their meetings in a clandestine fashion. Their movement was underground for years because it could be no other way. The criminal punishment of political dissent now taking place is the same.

    For people who claim to hate Hitler so much, they sure like to recreate the conditions for his ascent.

    Yes, if the Germans try to expel these people or (even worse) put them in camps, there'll be international uproar. It's not going to happen, at least not without a revolution in Germany.

    Which again raises the question of WTF Merkel was thinking. She's not a stupid woman (a physicist apparently) but she completely failed to see this problem coming.

    If she were a deep-cover Nazi sympathizer trying to rehabilitate National Socialism she couldn't do anything more effective for her cause.

    Yes the cock-up in Iraq freed up numbers of Sunni soldiers who stiffened the Jihadi armies, but in essence this was the warming up of the front line in the 1400 year war within Islam.

    The reality is even worse, especially in Europe.

    The costs of bringing up children in a middle-class lifestyle are prohibitive. The price of a decent house sizeable enough to bring up more than one designer kid is often frightening when a never ending river of new arrivals must be housed regardless. Almost every community also becomes at risk of unpredictable, devastating disruption so that only the truly wealthy feel confident of being able to guarantee their children space in which to grow up.

    I strongly suspect that without mass migration and given some state encouragement western TFRs would have naturally bounced back as the value of children in so many ways became too obvious to be disregarded and as the thinning of the population caused child-friendly housing to be affordable and a sense of sustainable community to rise.

    This would not have happened everywhere at the same time but once the pendulum swung back then the prevailing progressive ideology that undercuts motherhood and family life would likely have been challenged in a significant way.

    Having the liberal propaganda machine permanently on the default option of open borders means that alternatives and what if's are hardly explored.

    ‘The dignity of a person is untouchable’

    So says the German Constitution.

    God, how I hate these trite, pompous, meaningless, mendacious and downright dishonest little legalistic statements which drafters of state documents have a habit of throwing in.

    Just one counterexample. At this very moment there are literally hundreds of thousands of persons across the globe, who haven’t yet managed to con their way into Germany, who are dying and/or are in acute pain, discomfort or distress because they have treatable medical conditions which either they or their non-German governments simply do not have the cold, hard cash to be able to pay for the palliative treatment.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. No way he's going to win this, but but he's very likeable. So I think Trump would be well served by appointing Carson to Surgeon General.

    Surgeon General is a completely pointless and useless position, like Postmaster General. It probably made sense back in the 19th century when the medical practice involved lots of travelling doctors and surgeons carrying around saws in their briefcases, just like how post offices were a really big deal back then.

    In previous debates, Kasich tried to be aggressive and came across as whiny. He even got booed during the previous debate. In this debate, he was more agreeable, but didn't say much of value. He did agree a little bit with Trump on trade, but I agree he contributed little to the debate. Carson had a couple of funny lines, but was really invisible.

    If the Rubio-Cruz fight heats up on immigration, hopefully that'll dent Cruz in Iowa. I think for Trump, the number one priority is to win Iowa and finish this race early (Trump is ahead in NH and nationally).

    Cruz is very adept at speaking to the conservative base, but comes across as heavily scripted. I honestly don't trust him much. On the positive side, he's got some sensible views on the H1b program and illegal immigration.

    “The dignity of a person is untouchable” — so begins Germany’s postwar Constitution, with words drawn from bitter experience.
     
    Intellectual elites are behaving the way they are because they think it will extinguish the idea behind WWII. Human dignity can only be protected it's felt if all racial groups are the same. But if Nordic types are the highest achieving Europeans, how can human dignity be ensured?

    By opening the gates to a mixed race German people, Angela Merkel and many German intellectual elites believe they can permanently relinquish the potential for racial supremacy and conquest and Germany will be better after this is done.

    This is the idea driving what is happening. What is NOT driving what is happening is a few dumbasses and NGOs earning millions of dollars from refugee related business contracts or German business interests asked for this kind of deluge of cheap labor (they haven't). Most comments though are directed at these sources as the cause.

    You give far too much credit to intellectuals. If the elites think that human dignity can only be protected by mixing all the races into one, why don’t they start with themselves? Why don’t they come out of their enclaves and get their children busy breeding with Arabs?

    That's only relevant to the four that were governors. There was a giant riot in California in 1965, but none during the next eight years under Reagan.

    No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn’t be put in jail.

    You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don’t seem the understand the simple(very simple) of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups.

But the percentage that do is high enough, and the contribution that the rest of them make is low enough, that they are, on balance, a subtraction from, not an addition to, a western, European society. How many couscous cooks and rug merchants do we need? And individual accountability doesn't work at all when it confronts a clannish culture.

    Why do I not consider myself a "hater?" Because, in their own countries, I wish Muslims nothing but the best! I don't want to harm them! I'd stop bombing them! I'd stop invading them! I'd leave them the hell alone to sort out their own problems. I'd trade with them for their oil, as does Japan, and otherwise not intervene. Arabs and Persians and Africans have evolved in their own ways for their own environments and cultures. I think Islam is a religion suited very well for desert Bedouins and which has adapted to some other cultures and peoples. But Muslims do not mix with western European populations in any but the tiniest numbers. The diversity experiment has been a colossal failure--end it!

    Actually lots of people are saying just that. Other Muslims, the Ferguson rioters, etc. There are lots of people, Muslims and blacks in particular, who think members of their tribe should be able to avoid punishment for crimes against members of other tribes

    Yes, that is his argument, and based on experience, it is entirely correct. France and Britain have massive numbers of no-go zones - ethnic enclaves where non-Muslims are almost entirely unwelcome. Malmo has been turned into a shithole

    If criminal and extremist Muslims are such a slight minority, then why are so many Muslim countries such miserable places?

    If 99% of whites and 90% of blacks and Muslims are law-abiding you can say that "the vast majority of all three groups are law-abiding." What you can also say is that crime by blacks and Muslims is ten times higher than crime by whites.

    I don't have to prove that higher crime rates by blacks and Muslims renders societies all but ungovernable. The proof is absolutely everywhere. It is your job to prove that the blindly obvious is the result of something other than the behavior of the people who live in those countries.

    In Britain, 11 percent of prisoners are Muslim in contrast to about 3 percent of all inhabitants, according to the Justice Ministry. Research by the Open Society Institute, an advocacy organization, shows that in the Netherlands 20 percent of adult prisoners and 26 percent of all juvenile offenders are Muslim; the country is about 5.5 percent Muslim.

    In just one German city (Cologne) ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED young Muslim men gathered on NYE for the purpose of DENYING the dignity of non-Muslim persons, especially women. This was no accident - Islam has always regarded non-Muslims as having fewer rights than Muslims and women as having fewer rights than men. If this was not the vast majority of Muslims in Cologne, it was some not insignificant percentage of the young Muslim men of that group. Nor was this a purely religious problem - many of the young men were drunk and on drugs.

    Maybe there are measures that would ease the immediate problem - for example taking only the elderly or family groups as refugees instead of mainly young men, but overall Muslims have not integrated well into European society and continue to cause problems even after 2 or 3 generations of living in Europe. Maybe this is all the fault of the racist Europeans for not accepting them but perhaps there is some problem within the Muslim community itself and sending them to sensitivity workshops isn't really going to fix it?

In Cologne, it took the media days to report on what happened, and only then because social media practically forced them to. While the powers that be might talk a good game about punishing criminals, including Muslim ones, they're not doing it, not reporting things they're not forced into reporting, and go way out of their way to hide the Truth from us.

    It's a no-brainer that it's individuals that commit crimes (sometimes together, as in Cologne, Rotherham, etc.). But it's also a no-brainer that individuals of different cultures can see things, including crimes, in ways that differ from host cultures. Rape is obviously not that big of a deal to far too many Muslim men. Why risk it? Would you want your daughter living in a place like Cologne on New Year's Eve? Cui bono?

    It isn't racist to not want your culture changed, to want to live in a world in which you can pass down your own culture to your own kids; where there are jobs at fair wages that aren't driven down by immigration; where one language is spoken; where there is a shared idea of the True, Good, and Beautiful; where your culture isn't watered-down to comply with the sensitivities of immigrant cultures -- e.g., where saying "Merry Christmas" doesn't have to become something offensive; where social trust is high because there's a shared vision of the True, Good, and Beautiful; where people who want to stone homosexuals aren't imported by the millions and the same with people who think women should be covered head to toed lest they be seen -- and should be treated -- as whores; etc. And this is a thousand times truer when identity politics rule the day and groups are pitted against each other all the time (yay democracy!).

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don’t seem to understand the simple(very simple) idea of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

  49. Off-topic,

    The HAMILTON musical, and what it signifies:

    But it’s also the product of artistic choices that reflect Miranda’s larger project. Hamilton is the most prominent element of an even larger ongoing historiographical revolution in the United States — and, given the show’s emphasis on questions of legacy, self-consciously so. A group of scholars, pundits, and artists are reshaping how liberals understand American history and crafting a new usable version of a political tradition that runs from the Federalist Party through to the Whig Party and on to the “radical” faction of the early Republican Party while repudiating the early founders of the Democratic Party.

    The net impact of Miranda’s rendition of the dispute is to render Hamilton as a more progressive-friendly figure and Jefferson as a more straightforwardly conservative one. Jefferson complains that Hamilton’s text is too long, echoing Republican criticisms of Barack Obama’s key legislative initiatives, and objects generically to taxes — again, sounding like a modern Republican — without raising the point that 18th-century taxes hit the poor more heavily than the rich.

    This is part of a larger shift in the trajectory of how American history is understood.

    Two generations ago, popular historiography was dominated by the thinking of Arthur Schlesinger Jr., a historian and Kennedy administration aide who produced admiring books titled The Age of Jackson and The Age of Roosevelt. This tradition aligned neatly with the imperatives of the Democratic Party, and emphasized the idea of a continuous tradition of standing up for the little guy, starting with Jefferson, continuing with Andrew Jackson, and moving onward into the administrations of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Kennedy. In this historiographical tradition, the little guy is, implicitly, white. The Schlesingerian historiography also struggles with the fact that the two most celebrated American politicians of all time — George Washington and Abraham Lincoln — were both in opposition to the Jefferson-Jackson political tradition.

    In the more recent generation, a new historiography has emerged that celebrates not only Washington and Lincoln but also the lesser-known Federalists, Whigs, and Radical Republicans who operated in the same tradition.

    One can think of this tradition as emerging with Eric Foner’s Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, which both reevaluated a specific period in time and also began the process of looking at 19th-century politics through the lenses of race-conscious post–civil rights American liberalism.
    Daniel Walker Howe’s history of the Jackson era, What Hath God Wrought, essentially projects Foner’s perspective back in time, praising the Whig Party’s progressive views on race and interest in infrastructure spending, counterpoised to Jackson’s racism, small government dogmatism, and crank monetary views.
    Three popular biographies — the Ron Chernow Hamilton biography that inspired Miranda, Chernow’s biography of Washington, and David McCullough’s biography of John Adams — have brought this new perspective to bear on the founding generation,

    But to someone like Bernie Sanders and his supporters, crushing the political power of the rich is the central political cause of our time — the key from which everything else follows. This worldview is incompatible with both the spirit of high-dollar, star-studded fundraising events (which, indeed, Sanders eschews) and with the idea of celebrating Hamilton and the Hamiltonian tradition in American politics. Not coincidentally, it also has a somewhat strained relationship with some of the racial justice and immigrant rights causes (“the billionaires,” for example, are clearly not the primary impediment to the policing reforms sought by Black Lives Matter nor to obtaining a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants) that helped inspire the historiographical revisions that are the basis of Miranda’s Hamilton.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

He did agree a little bit with Trump on trade, but I agree he contributed little to the debate. Carson had a couple of funny lines, but was really invisible.

    If the Rubio-Cruz fight heats up on immigration, hopefully that'll dent Cruz in Iowa. I think for Trump, the number one priority is to win Iowa and finish this race early (Trump is ahead in NH and nationally).

    Cruz is very adept at speaking to the conservative base, but comes across as heavily scripted. I honestly don't trust him much. On the positive side, he's got some sensible views on the H1b program and illegal immigration.

    Trump got hit a lot on trade, but I liked how he defended the tarriff idea. He had a funny exchange with Jeb Bush on that.

    Rafael Cruz wanted to increase H-1B visas 500%. Not my idea of “sensible.”

    Race mixing among those of the power elite is likely higher than the rate it’s occurring among the bourgeois. Look at the mixing that the Bush family is doing.

    It wasn't so long ago that someone pointed out that the only notable interracial marriages in Washington were both Republican-- Phil Gramm and Clarence Thomas.

But people also have more than one kid, and they all don't swim the Congo, or Yangtze or Euphrates or Indus.
    , @Wilkey
    "Race mixing among those of the power elite is likely higher than the rate it’s occurring among the bourgeois."

    Nah, but I guess it depends on how you define race mixing. Members of the white elite and their offspring are definitely more likely to marry Jews (if you count that as race mixing), possibly more likely to marry Asians, but far less likely to marry Hispanics and blacks. Sure there are visible exceptions, like Jeb Bush, or John McCain's son. But you have to remember that there are lots of people who are part of the elite, especially if you count their children.

    What's also important to remember is that while elite status often does pass from one generation to the next, there is still regression to the mean. Members of the elite aren't necessarily all that bright to begin with. That their children may be dumber should come as no great surprise.

    , @SFG
    It might be a way for a politician to hedge against the browning of America and keep the family dynasty relevant (Jeb Bush comes to mind). Once your kids are Hispanic or black, they're 'diverse' and able to get those votes. Obama is sort of an accidental example of this--his mom was very much a lefty elite type.

    The 'New York values' thing was kind of funny; if you checked it out on Twitter there were lots of people you wouldn't expect applauding Trump, or else Jewish pundits saying they were surprised the word wasn't code for 'Jewish'. (Which even I was skeptical about--isn't the nation's biggest city always going to have different values than the rural areas?)

    Being from there, I'm actually starting to like Trump, though I'm still convinced he's running a scam on the white working class.

    The great divide in American society today is not between whites and non-whites but between Fishtown and Belmont. The elites mix with other elites, regardless of color or religion.

    “The dignity of a person is untouchable” — so begins Germany’s postwar Constitution, with words drawn from bitter experience.
     
    Intellectual elites are behaving the way they are because they think it will extinguish the idea behind WWII. Human dignity can only be protected it's felt if all racial groups are the same. But if Nordic types are the highest achieving Europeans, how can human dignity be ensured?

    By opening the gates to a mixed race German people, Angela Merkel and many German intellectual elites believe they can permanently relinquish the potential for racial supremacy and conquest and Germany will be better after this is done.

    This is the idea driving what is happening. What is NOT driving what is happening is a few dumbasses and NGOs earning millions of dollars from refugee related business contracts or German business interests asked for this kind of deluge of cheap labor (they haven't). Most comments though are directed at these sources as the cause.

    Unlikely that most german women — especially educated ones — would want to mate with a 80 IQ syrian; their hot-headedness is diamterically opposed to native german’s meeknesss. Arabs aren’t hard-working either. It’s mostly german women with litte or average education that are doing this, or ones that are very young. Reading elitepartner.de really opens your eyes of what a german educated woman looks for in a man, and muslims certainly don’t factor in here.

    It’s more likely there will be a new underclass — Unterschicht — that is composed of mostly blacks and muslims and a few mixed-race victims who will be torn between two identities which results in less well-being, as evidenced that most african-german or muslim-german children are miserable SJWs that see Germany as racist, yet they don’t leave for their african or muslim paradise. Obama also has a pathological hate for whites. Most muslims marry their cousins or at least from the same race anyway, as their holy scriptures requires them to do. I also don’t think german educated women would want uneducated and misbehaving parents-in-law. Remember: muslims have YUGE families, as a white german you’re the misfit there. It will be an awkward experience; I remember being the only german kid in my schoolfriend’s huge turkish family: I was watched with suspicion and contempt.

    there is sometimes a huge difference between what people say and what they do, and this certainly the case for german women regarding the choice of the father of their children.

What the average german women wants is first of all a westafrican partner, no matter how rich, educated, successful etc. he is and if she doesn't get this a successful german men will be accepted. Arabs / near Eastern guys will be third choice behind those two groups. But then again there is a kind of physical and psychological derangement in young men which can only be developed in rich first world countries. I am talking of skinny-fat young man who have never really worked in their life, neither physical nor cognitive, and can do nothing else than consume.

However, the 2nd generation born from two refugees (or one refugees and family reunification spouse) will out marry at 10%+ with Germans and the generation after that will increase even more. These unions will be between low IQ Arab and African refugees and low IQ Germans. However, the sheer number of these unions could by 2100 produce a mixed race German people.

    Not everyone in a population is well educated or above average. Half the German population is either average or below average by German standards. Take the bottom third of the German female population; they're more likely to get involved with these non-white migrants and from them comes the mixed-race underclass that ends up being a permanent albatross around everyone's neck.

    An alternative to immigration insurance is an immigration bond of $200,000.

    Before entering the nation, the immigrant must buy an immigration bond.

    After the immigrant leaves the nation, his money will be returned to him, less the cost of his:
    - Crime
    - Medical care
    - Children

    Many immigrants come from clannish cultures where people have intense loyalty to their clan, but no loyalty to broader society.

    Immigration bonds are useful for managing high-risk immigrants from clannish cultures:

    - An immigrant will borrow money from his clan to buy an immigration bond.

    - If the immigrant commits a crime, the cost of his imprisonment is subtracted from his immigration bond, resulting in his clan losing their money.

    - Therefore, an immigration bond will cause an immigrant’s clan to intensely pressure the immigrant to not commit crime.

    “The dignity of a person is untouchable”

    I wonder what Cohen has to say about the Rotherham scandal.

    Where was the dignity there?

    Where is dignity in modern UK where white men abandon their daughters who grow up under single mothers addicted to trash culture favored by globalism, Liberalism, and hedonism?

    Where is the dignity in the white elites and white authorities in the UK who, in their racial-cultural-ethical disconnect from white masses, showed no outrage when it turned out that so many white girls were abused by immigrant/foreign men?

    True dignity of national elites comes from caring for the national masses.
    But white elites feel nothing for their own people.
    Elites feel disconnect, masses feel disillusion.

    If it was discovered that bunch of white foreigners in Iran sexually enslaved and abused 100s or 1000s of Iranian girls, both the Iranian elites and Iranian masses would be up in arms.
    If it turned out that a bunch of Polish Catholics sexually enslaved and abused 100s of Jewish girls in Israel, Jews would have cried ‘bloody murder’. Iranian leaders and Israeli leaders, for all their fault, care about their own.

    But there was no feeling for the white girls from UK elites. And even most Brits, hooked to TV and drink, looked the other way.
    Dignity?

    UK and EU are becoming like Thailand and Philippines where the native elites and even the masses don’t care if countless foreign men come and use their women(and even little girls) as whores and sex toys. The ‘dignity’ of globalism.

    And now UK elites feel no special connection to people of their own race. They now say ANYONE can be British. So, if British Pakistanis abuse British white girls, there is no need to feel any racial or national outrage. It’s just some Brits abusing other Brits.
    White British elites feeling outrage about girls of their own race abused by non-whites would be deemed ‘undignified’ by globalist PC that says the native majority must be ‘inclusive’.

    Some dignity.

    Note to Cohen. If gentiles, be they Muslim or neo-Nazi, kill a bunch of Jews, he should maintain his dignity and not fall into the undignified mindset of us vs them. Jews shouldn’t see it as ‘them gentiles hurting us Jews’ but just ‘some people hurting some other people’. More ‘dignified’ that way.

    We should rewrite all of history. It’s wrong to say Germans invaded Poland. It is undignified to portray Germans as the ‘bad other’. No, just some people invaded some other people. Why bring nationality into it? Make it all generic. Less ‘racist’, more dignified.

    A nation begins to die when the elites no longer identify with or feel for their own people of same race, blood, and culture.
    Not only were the girls of Rotherham raised wrong by demoralized and debased parents, not only were they horribly abused by Pakistani thugs, but they were even neglected and sneered at by the white elites who, in all their highfalutin ‘dignity’, insisted it had nothing to do with ‘race’ and that they, as British elites, have no right to care more about whites than for other races.

    Yet, ironically, white elites adopted such ‘neutral’ view about the masses below them because they are totally favoritist when it comes globalist elites above them.

    White elites who see no race among people below — they are all equally British, the whites, the Africans, the Pakistanis, etc — certainly do see race(the most essential) in the people above them. Cohen’s tribe.

    Same in the US. Cuckservative leaders who claim to be ‘colorblind’ about people below them are so very color-aware of the kind of people they must serve.

    Off-topic,

    The HAMILTON musical, and what it signifies:

    But it's also the product of artistic choices that reflect Miranda's larger project. Hamilton is the most prominent element of an even larger ongoing historiographical revolution in the United States — and, given the show's emphasis on questions of legacy, self-consciously so. A group of scholars, pundits, and artists are reshaping how liberals understand American history and crafting a new usable version of a political tradition that runs from the Federalist Party through to the Whig Party and on to the "radical" faction of the early Republican Party while repudiating the early founders of the Democratic Party.
     

    The net impact of Miranda's rendition of the dispute is to render Hamilton as a more progressive-friendly figure and Jefferson as a more straightforwardly conservative one. Jefferson complains that Hamilton's text is too long, echoing Republican criticisms of Barack Obama's key legislative initiatives, and objects generically to taxes — again, sounding like a modern Republican — without raising the point that 18th-century taxes hit the poor more heavily than the rich.

    This is part of a larger shift in the trajectory of how American history is understood.
     

    Two generations ago, popular historiography was dominated by the thinking of Arthur Schlesinger Jr., a historian and Kennedy administration aide who produced admiring books titled The Age of Jackson and The Age of Roosevelt. This tradition aligned neatly with the imperatives of the Democratic Party, and emphasized the idea of a continuous tradition of standing up for the little guy, starting with Jefferson, continuing with Andrew Jackson, and moving onward into the administrations of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt and Kennedy. In this historiographical tradition, the little guy is, implicitly, white. The Schlesingerian historiography also struggles with the fact that the two most celebrated American politicians of all time — George Washington and Abraham Lincoln — were both in opposition to the Jefferson-Jackson political tradition.
     

    In the more recent generation, a new historiography has emerged that celebrates not only Washington and Lincoln but also the lesser-known Federalists, Whigs, and Radical Republicans who operated in the same tradition.

    One can think of this tradition as emerging with Eric Foner's Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, which both reevaluated a specific period in time and also began the process of looking at 19th-century politics through the lenses of race-conscious post–civil rights American liberalism.
    Daniel Walker Howe's history of the Jackson era, What Hath God Wrought, essentially projects Foner's perspective back in time, praising the Whig Party's progressive views on race and interest in infrastructure spending, counterpoised to Jackson's racism, small government dogmatism, and crank monetary views.
    Three popular biographies — the Ron Chernow Hamilton biography that inspired Miranda, Chernow's biography of Washington, and David McCullough's biography of John Adams — have brought this new perspective to bear on the founding generation,
     

    But to someone like Bernie Sanders and his supporters, crushing the political power of the rich is the central political cause of our time — the key from which everything else follows. This worldview is incompatible with both the spirit of high-dollar, star-studded fundraising events (which, indeed, Sanders eschews) and with the idea of celebrating Hamilton and the Hamiltonian tradition in American politics. Not coincidentally, it also has a somewhat strained relationship with some of the racial justice and immigrant rights causes ("the billionaires," for example, are clearly not the primary impediment to the policing reforms sought by Black Lives Matter nor to obtaining a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants) that helped inspire the historiographical revisions that are the basis of Miranda's Hamilton.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven’t seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America’s history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion’s Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    Jackson's gone. Hamilton doesn't need to be replaced, he just get reinvented so he can stay on the money.

    And if indeed, the trend in history is "praising the Whig Party’s progressive views on race and interest in infrastructure spending, counterpoised to Jackson’s racism, small government dogmatism, and crank monetary views," then it's obvious who should be the subject of the next best-selling revisionist biography:

    Henry Clay. Big on "internal improvements," was the spoiler in the 1824 election thus earning Jackson's lifelong hatred, tried to make compromises between slave states and free states. Could make for a great tale of a well-intentioned tragic figure. And he was from Kentucky. Who from that state could back the project?

    Someone needs to get Jennifer Lawrence on the phone. Tell her "you put up the money, this time you'll get to direct Bradley Cooper instead of just playing his girlfriend."

    In a perfect world, Steve Sailer would be the law professor that the Republican occasionally go to for advice. And I'd be running a studio.

    Gouverneur Morris, who penned the Preamble to the US Constitution and drafted the final text of the document itself, was also a New Yorker. He was a serial philanderer, which may explain why he doesn't get the ink of the other Founding Fathers. He was present in France during the French Revolution and his diaries during the period (which are online via Google books) offer a unique inside perspective to what was going on in Paris (he dined with Talleyrand for example, and sheltered loyalists hiding from the Jacobins). Brookhiser's bio is a good read. I also recommend Gotham, a monster history of NYC, though it was so thick I had to cut it into four pieces so I could hold it in my hands.

    Yeah, the musical does play up the New York angle quit a bit. And it also really works the "Hamilton as immigrant from the Caribbean " angle as well. Interestingly, pre-1960s historiography used to see that as Hamilton's weakness. The other Founders (John Adams, Jefferson, etc) tended to have deep roots in the regional cultures of mainland Anglo-America. Hamilton didn't, and that prevented him from fully grasping the American ethos.

    NY was important in the Revolution in the sense that they were the main ones who were undecided. NE was firmly in favor of declaring independence and the South was in favor, but NY was on the fence until the very last moment. So they were like the holdout on a jury who prevents the jury from rendering a verdict. This made NY central, but not in a good way.

    There was a very substantial and wealthy Loyalist community in NY who ended up on the losing side and who had to flee. Columbia University was founded as King's College by royal charter in the 1750s. Its leadership had Loyalist sympathies and they ended up taking their charter with them to Nova Scotia where they re-founded the university (while the winning revolutionaries got a new charter and a new name from the NY Legislature).

    "Not only are there places that refuse to act in ways their location and resources would predict. But their behavior is viewed as being in the weird-to-incomprehensible range by the standards of the rest of this diverse continent. When viewed from the perspective of Nine Nations, they can only be described as aberrations."

    I thought it was very interesting that the administration announced they were getting rid of Hamilton and not Jackson (the one most vilified in current historiography).

    By announcing they were getting rid of Hamilton, the most "progressive" of the Founding Fathers, they announced their intention is not just to eliminate the "bad" white males from the currency, but all of them.

At this very moment there are literally hundreds of thousands of persons across the globe, who haven't yet managed to con their way into Germany, who are dying and/or are in acute pain, discomfort or distress because they have treatable medical conditions which either they or their non-German governments simply do not have the cold, hard cash to be able to pay for the palliative treatment.

As head of the Public Health Service (the 5th uniformed service) the Surgeon General could be very influential in the public health measures neessary to combat communicable diseases. The 2014 ebola epidemic, in which the U.S. failed to impose travel ban and quarantine restrictions that other African countries were imposing on travelers from areas where ebola was present, shows how politicized such decisions can be. Imagine a particularly virulent strain of tuberculosis or influenza originating in Africa or even southern Asia. And if the disease started spreading within the United States–read accounts of the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic for a taste of how bad things can get, even with fairly modern medicine. Give me a hard-nosed white guy making the travel ban and quarantine restrictions!

    "“The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne".

    No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn't be put in jail.

    You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don't seem the understand the simple(very simple) of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups. But that was not good enough for you. You want ALL Muslims out. How can any reasonable person reading your posts not conclude that you have ulterior motives other than deterring criminality when you vouch for a moratorium on all Muslim immigation?

    I’ll say it; Steve Sailer can speak for himself. I want all Muslims out! Not now! Yesterday! I know that only a minority commit crimes or asocial activities. But the percentage that do is high enough, and the contribution that the rest of them make is low enough, that they are, on balance, a subtraction from, not an addition to, a western, European society. How many couscous cooks and rug merchants do we need? And individual accountability doesn’t work at all when it confronts a clannish culture.

    Why do I not consider myself a “hater?” Because, in their own countries, I wish Muslims nothing but the best! I don’t want to harm them! I’d stop bombing them! I’d stop invading them! I’d leave them the hell alone to sort out their own problems. I’d trade with them for their oil, as does Japan, and otherwise not intervene. Arabs and Persians and Africans have evolved in their own ways for their own environments and cultures. I think Islam is a religion suited very well for desert Bedouins and which has adapted to some other cultures and peoples. But Muslims do not mix with western European populations in any but the tiniest numbers. The diversity experiment has been a colossal failure–end it!

    Thanks for those links; quarantine and travel bans can work, although neither is perfect. Another factor, although I don't know how much influence the Surgeon General might have on it, would be the allocation of medical resources in the event of an epidemic. If there's not enough medical equipment, doctors, nurses, drugs, hospital beds, etc., to go around, some people will not get treated. And it's unlikely that a disease would have the same impact on all racial categories, meaning any rationing decision would be subject to racism charges. So the triage decisions would have to be fairly cold-blooded. Again, give me a hard-nosed white guy making them!

    there is sometimes a huge difference between what people say and what they do, and this certainly the case for german women regarding the choice of the father of their children.
    But actually Syrians will not do great on the german partner market, not bad either, they will do OK. What the average german women wants is first of all a westafrican partner, no matter how rich, educated, successful etc. he is and if she doesn’t get this a successful german men will be accepted. Arabs / near Eastern guys will be third choice behind those two groups. But then again there is a kind of physical and psychological derangement in young men which can only be developed in rich first world countries. I am talking of skinny-fat young man who have never really worked in their life, neither physical nor cognitive, and can do nothing else than consume. This group of german man will of course be now totally excluded from the partner market, as the number of available men in the relevant cohorts has risen by around 20% last year alone.

    Islam is not a race, it’s a religion, so when you accuse an anti-Islamic of racism, it is you who is the racist because you conflate race and religion. Islam is a religion and a culture that blend very poorly with Western Civilization.

    Furthermore, your vast majority of non-criminal moslems is not nearly so vast as you think. Rapists and killers are just the tip of the iceberg. For every rapist or killer, how many muggers, burglars, arsonists and car thieves are there?

    Great to see the cage match between Rubio and Cruz on immigration: amnesty for illegals vs. 500-percent more H-1B visas.

    Cruz wears me out with his extremely fast speech and shoehorned-in homilies to the greatness of America. I like some of what Cruz has to say but he exudes and unpleasant anger. Trump manages to be likable even when angry. But I suppose I'm still inclined to like Trump, though the birther thing with Cruz is stupid.

    Next debate, maybe Carson and Kasich can stay home. They add nothing. At least Christie is somewhat entertaining, though I did enjoy Carson's appearance on the Howard Stern show two months ago.

    I’m still inclined to like Trump, though the birther thing with Cruz is stupid.

    Actually it is a smart tactic. Going after Cruz on this issue now gives Trump an escape route when the inevitable charge of racism is raised in the general election for having gone after Obama for the same reason 4 years ago. It could even pre-empt such an attack…

    Isn't it strange that the Republican party has so many people putting themselves forward for the presidency whose eligibility is questionable? (Cruz, Rubio, Jindal) Some people are even suggesting Nikki Haley as VP, I read - and I wonder if both of her parents were citizens of the U.S. at the time of her birth (I'm assuming she was born in the U.S., but nowadays who knows).

    Ted Cruz is a real hypocrite on this issue. He gave up his Canadian citizenship recently, at the time he decided to run for president. He was keeping his options open as a dual-citizen for pretty much his whole life.

    Shouldn't we have learned how important this issue is from examining the actions taken by the non-natural-born citizen we have currently sitting in the White House? Not only was his father a British subject born in Kenya, but his birth certificate was clearly faked. Certainly the clearly pro-Arab (bowing to the Saudi king, of all things) and pro-Islam, pro-Arab spring stance he has taken give us an inkling as to his real loyalties. Not to mention that while John McCain carefully avoided mentioning his middle name during the election, Obama immediately took steps to emphasize it once elected.
    , @tbraton
    As I recall, Trump also cleverly gave himself a little freedom not to pick Cruz as his running mate because he wouldn't want to have that issue hanging over his campaign as a distraction. If Cruz finishes a strong second to Trump, there might be strong pressure to add Cruz as his VP. As I stated before, I don't think Cruz would make a good running mate because Trump would probably not need him to win Texas and because Cruz, for all his smarts, does not have the right experience and temperament to be "a heartbeat away from the Presidency." Being a lightning rod himself, Trump does not need another lightening rod on the ticket. I thought Trump was most impressive in defending New York from Cruz's cheap shot attack, with Cruz left with that silly grin on his face at the end of the sally. (I am very familiar with Texas and fully aware of the deep suspicions that Texans have of Easterners, especially New Yorkers, that Cruz was trying to tap into. I think Trump rose to the occasion and properly invoked New Yorkers' response to 9/11 and made Cruz look like a cheap lightweight.)

    Unlikely that most german women -- especially educated ones -- would want to mate with a 80 IQ syrian; their hot-headedness is diamterically opposed to native german's meeknesss. Arabs aren't hard-working either. It's mostly german women with litte or average education that are doing this, or ones that are very young. Reading elitepartner.de really opens your eyes of what a german educated woman looks for in a man, and muslims certainly don't factor in here.

    It's more likely there will be a new underclass -- Unterschicht -- that is composed of mostly blacks and muslims and a few mixed-race victims who will be torn between two identities which results in less well-being, as evidenced that most african-german or muslim-german children are miserable SJWs that see Germany as racist, yet they don't leave for their african or muslim paradise. Obama also has a pathological hate for whites. Most muslims marry their cousins or at least from the same race anyway, as their holy scriptures requires them to do. I also don't think german educated women would want uneducated and misbehaving parents-in-law. Remember: muslims have YUGE families, as a white german you're the misfit there. It will be an awkward experience; I remember being the only german kid in my schoolfriend's huge turkish family: I was watched with suspicion and contempt.

    “No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn’t be put in jail.”

    Actually lots of people are saying just that. Other Muslims, the Ferguson rioters, etc. There are lots of people, Muslims and blacks in particular, who think members of their tribe should be able to avoid punishment for crimes against members of other tribes

    “You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.”

    Yes, that is his argument, and based on experience, it is entirely correct. France and Britain have massive numbers of no-go zones – ethnic enclaves where non-Muslims are almost entirely unwelcome. Malmo has been turned into a shithole

    “Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims.”

    If criminal and extremist Muslims are such a slight minority, then why are so many Muslim countries such miserable places?

    If 99% of whites and 90% of blacks and Muslims are law-abiding you can say that “the vast majority of all three groups are law-abiding.” What you can also say is that crime by blacks and Muslims is ten times higher than crime by whites.

    I don’t have to prove that higher crime rates by blacks and Muslims renders societies all but ungovernable. The proof is absolutely everywhere. It is your job to prove that the blindly obvious is the result of something other than the behavior of the people who live in those countries.

    “Race mixing among those of the power elite is likely higher than the rate it’s occurring among the bourgeois.”

    Nah, but I guess it depends on how you define race mixing. Members of the white elite and their offspring are definitely more likely to marry Jews (if you count that as race mixing), possibly more likely to marry Asians, but far less likely to marry Hispanics and blacks. Sure there are visible exceptions, like Jeb Bush, or John McCain’s son. But you have to remember that there are lots of people who are part of the elite, especially if you count their children.

    What’s also important to remember is that while elite status often does pass from one generation to the next, there is still regression to the mean. Members of the elite aren’t necessarily all that bright to begin with. That their children may be dumber should come as no great surprise.

    It might be a way for a politician to hedge against the browning of America and keep the family dynasty relevant (Jeb Bush comes to mind). Once your kids are Hispanic or black, they’re ‘diverse’ and able to get those votes. Obama is sort of an accidental example of this–his mom was very much a lefty elite type.

I still sometimes feel like an outcast. “Do you eat pork?”” I only date Christian men.” Even American blacks are still culturally isolated and ostracized. That project is centuries old.

    Now take non-white, non-christian people from lands with no everyday white privilege. Take people from lands that consider those that practice the other form of Islam and we have a problem.

    Look, Western and Northern Europe has a big problem with Greeks and people that ring the Mediterranean. If Europe has trouble accepting its southern people, and America wont accept its own black citizens, how do you expect Europeans to accept those from the Muslim lands?

Benjamin was the first Jew to be elected to the United States Senate who had not renounced the religion, and the first of that faith to hold a Cabinet position in North America.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    Jackson’s gone. Hamilton doesn’t need to be replaced, he just get reinvented so he can stay on the money.

    And if indeed, the trend in history is “praising the Whig Party’s progressive views on race and interest in infrastructure spending, counterpoised to Jackson’s racism, small government dogmatism, and crank monetary views,” then it’s obvious who should be the subject of the next best-selling revisionist biography:

    Henry Clay. Big on “internal improvements,” was the spoiler in the 1824 election thus earning Jackson’s lifelong hatred, tried to make compromises between slave states and free states. Could make for a great tale of a well-intentioned tragic figure. And he was from Kentucky. Who from that state could back the project?

    Someone needs to get Jennifer Lawrence on the phone. Tell her “you put up the money, this time you’ll get to direct Bradley Cooper instead of just playing his girlfriend.”

    And what a contender, a 35-year old middle class women who can speak multiple languages, yet went around sleeping with low-income illegal immigrants from third world countries.

    Investigators believe Miss Olsen met him in the early hours of the morning last Friday after leaving a nightclub, the Montecarla.

    The pair walked back to her flat in Via Santa Monica and had consensual sex, possibly under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

    But you are assuming that what he is saying is true, which it might not be. My experience of criminals, of which I have some, is that they will always come up with a version of events that presents themselves in the best possible light, and that they will rarely tell the truth, especially if a judicial outcome is pending.

    In this particular case, the finding of a used condom in the toilet, presumably containing his semen, obviously limits the fabric of plausible stories that may be woven in his defense, but we still don't really know if the real reason for using a condom was for contraceptive purposes in mutually agreeable sexual intercourse, or intended as an attempt to dispose of DNA evidence in a rape.

    As in the Amanda Knox/Meredith Kerchner murder case, it seems that the Italian police are predisposed to believe that bizarre sex games precede murders, which seems rather odd and possibly tells us more about the Italians than about these foreign killers.

    Thanks for those links; quarantine and travel bans can work, although neither is perfect. Another factor, although I don’t know how much influence the Surgeon General might have on it, would be the allocation of medical resources in the event of an epidemic. If there’s not enough medical equipment, doctors, nurses, drugs, hospital beds, etc., to go around, some people will not get treated. And it’s unlikely that a disease would have the same impact on all racial categories, meaning any rationing decision would be subject to racism charges. So the triage decisions would have to be fairly cold-blooded. Again, give me a hard-nosed white guy making them!

    I’m still inclined to like Trump, though the birther thing with Cruz is stupid.
     
    Actually it is a smart tactic. Going after Cruz on this issue now gives Trump an escape route when the inevitable charge of racism is raised in the general election for having gone after Obama for the same reason 4 years ago. It could even pre-empt such an attack...

    Isn’t it strange that the Republican party has so many people putting themselves forward for the presidency whose eligibility is questionable? (Cruz, Rubio, Jindal) Some people are even suggesting Nikki Haley as VP, I read – and I wonder if both of her parents were citizens of the U.S. at the time of her birth (I’m assuming she was born in the U.S., but nowadays who knows).

    Ted Cruz is a real hypocrite on this issue. He gave up his Canadian citizenship recently, at the time he decided to run for president. He was keeping his options open as a dual-citizen for pretty much his whole life.

    Shouldn’t we have learned how important this issue is from examining the actions taken by the non-natural-born citizen we have currently sitting in the White House? Not only was his father a British subject born in Kenya, but his birth certificate was clearly faked. Certainly the clearly pro-Arab (bowing to the Saudi king, of all things) and pro-Islam, pro-Arab spring stance he has taken give us an inkling as to his real loyalties. Not to mention that while John McCain carefully avoided mentioning his middle name during the election, Obama immediately took steps to emphasize it once elected.

    In Britain, 11 percent of prisoners are Muslim in contrast to about 3 percent of all inhabitants, according to the Justice Ministry. Research by the Open Society Institute, an advocacy organization, shows that in the Netherlands 20 percent of adult prisoners and 26 percent of all juvenile offenders are Muslim; the country is about 5.5 percent Muslim.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    “The dignity of a person is untouchable” — so begins Germany’s postwar Constitution, with words drawn from bitter experience.
     
    Intellectual elites are behaving the way they are because they think it will extinguish the idea behind WWII. Human dignity can only be protected it's felt if all racial groups are the same. But if Nordic types are the highest achieving Europeans, how can human dignity be ensured?

    By opening the gates to a mixed race German people, Angela Merkel and many German intellectual elites believe they can permanently relinquish the potential for racial supremacy and conquest and Germany will be better after this is done.

    This is the idea driving what is happening. What is NOT driving what is happening is a few dumbasses and NGOs earning millions of dollars from refugee related business contracts or German business interests asked for this kind of deluge of cheap labor (they haven't). Most comments though are directed at these sources as the cause.

    Amen,brother.This immigration movement is not being driven by “cheap labor” business owners.Robots are going to take care of the low-wage workers,but the campaign for immigration will keep going.Why?Because of the hatred of the white male.Of all people he may not be allowed respect and dignity.He must be crushed or at least be humiliated as often as possible.

    In glancing at the most recent surgeon generals, it appears that the position has been occupied by minorities (including the execrable Jocelyn Elders). But I'd be careful. As head of the Public Health Service (the 5th uniformed service) the Surgeon General could be very influential in the public health measures neessary to combat communicable diseases. The 2014 ebola epidemic, in which the U.S. failed to impose travel ban and quarantine restrictions that other African countries were imposing on travelers from areas where ebola was present, shows how politicized such decisions can be. Imagine a particularly virulent strain of tuberculosis or influenza originating in Africa or even southern Asia. And if the disease started spreading within the United States--read accounts of the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic for a taste of how bad things can get, even with fairly modern medicine. Give me a hard-nosed white guy making the travel ban and quarantine restrictions!

    better to have a hard nosed black guy making the travel ban and quarantine restrictions , as this would reduce the backlash from the leftists media and we would get a higher level of enforcement across the nation. If the United States needs to restrict immigrants from Africa or Asia and quarantine those in contact with such people, it will be easier to accomplish with a Black Surgeon General

    Actually, no. Nobody said that ALL Muslims are going to become rapists, because that’s clearly not true. But too many of them are, and too many of them are going to cause other problems, and the ones who don’t aren’t really so great that Europe just can’t live without them. So, there’s simply no benefit to taking them in. So they shouldn’t.

  112. Trump showed he was the only serious candidate in the race. A person willing to analyze issues from an intellectual position as opposed to the PC narrative. This was highlighted when they asked him if he wanted to walk-back he his ban on Muslim immigration. Trump said no. Then they asked every other candidate what they thought of his position and they all said in one way or the other – “we will not be able to form a coalition with middle-eastern countries to fight ISIS if we do not let Muslim immigration to the US.” What?!?!? Everyone one of them said this.

    Countries will form alliances with the US because we are an economic and military superpower. They will form alliances if they perceive such alliances to be in their best interest. Sure they might want the US to allow Muslim immigration but none who are worried about selling oil, or defeating ISIS are going to say “we won’t ally with you because you won’t let Muslim immigration into your country.” The idea is stupid and all the candidates, other than Trump, showed they are cowards afraid of standing up to the PC narrative and being called a racist or bigot. I honestly don’t understand how anyone could support someone from that group of anti-intellectual weaklings.

    In just one German city (Cologne) ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED young Muslim men gathered on NYE for the purpose of DENYING the dignity of non-Muslim persons, especially women. This was no accident – Islam has always regarded non-Muslims as having fewer rights than Muslims and women as having fewer rights than men. If this was not the vast majority of Muslims in Cologne, it was some not insignificant percentage of the young Muslim men of that group. Nor was this a purely religious problem – many of the young men were drunk and on drugs.

    Maybe there are measures that would ease the immediate problem – for example taking only the elderly or family groups as refugees instead of mainly young men, but overall Muslims have not integrated well into European society and continue to cause problems even after 2 or 3 generations of living in Europe. Maybe this is all the fault of the racist Europeans for not accepting them but perhaps there is some problem within the Muslim community itself and sending them to sensitivity workshops isn’t really going to fix it?

    How often have you heard "I don't want to bring children into a world like this" from whites?
    Now, think how often you've heard it from blacks?

    Mexicans?

    Arabs?

    To ask the question is to answer it.

    A very attractive German woman gets naked in Cologne's square, holding a protest sign, to let Muslims know they have to respect the dignity of women. I think she's working at cross-purposes here.
    http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=c7c_1452259390

    The woman is Swiss and, I’ve read from other sources, of Spanish-Slovenian extraction. She’s a professional exhibitionist who, sadly, isn’t consigned to seedy strip bars as she would be in any sane society. I agree, she does nothing to advance the cause of women’s dignity. Sometimes I wonder if the Muslims have a point; a Muslim woman doing this would risk honor killing.

    "There is a small literary genre of I-married-a-Moslem-and-became-his-doormat books, the best known being “Not Without My Daughter”.

    The daughter of the friend of a friend of mine is in this very situation right now in Egypt.

    BTW, this same friend, who is seventy years old, was looking for a parking space at Costco yesterday in Chattanooga and inadvertently eased her car between a woman in a hijab with two infants in her shopping basket and her husband, who had walked ahead to their car. As she eased by he made a gesture of complaint, and when she rolled down her window and apologized, he said, "Fuck you!" She was taken aback, whereupon he followed up with, "Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you!" I told her she should have gotten his license plate and called 911.

    That’s hardly an emergency, although getting the license number and reporting the incident to policy might have made sense.

    Although I’m not advocating it, another solution would be if some of her relatives used an ice pick on the four tires and smashed all the glass of the car. I think that message would have resonated more firmy with Ahmad.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    Gouverneur Morris, who penned the Preamble to the US Constitution and drafted the final text of the document itself, was also a New Yorker. He was a serial philanderer, which may explain why he doesn’t get the ink of the other Founding Fathers. He was present in France during the French Revolution and his diaries during the period (which are online via Google books) offer a unique inside perspective to what was going on in Paris (he dined with Talleyrand for example, and sheltered loyalists hiding from the Jacobins). Brookhiser’s bio is a good read. I also recommend Gotham, a monster history of NYC, though it was so thick I had to cut it into four pieces so I could hold it in my hands.

    Hamilton was well known for carrying on an affair with a married woman. The husband learned of the affair and used it to blackmail Hamilton.

    However, Hamilton was not in Burr's league. Aaron Burr's journals detail his numerous sexual encounters - he would screw anything he could get his hands on, including men and (even more shockingly) he shared his journal with his daughter. Hamilton was more like Eisenhower who (probably) had a single mistress during wartime, while Burr was more like JFK - an insatiable amoral monster who wanted fresh meat every night. Burr had a couple of children with his East Indian maidservant - interestingly these children were considered black and joined the African-American community of Philadelphia.

    Burr was the real NY hustler of the bunch - always working a con. If he had been elected President he would have been the most corrupt President in US history - he was the kind of a guy who would not have been above selling the US out to its enemies for the right price.

    Always been fond of Gouverneur Morris. Some choice quotes:


    "He [Morris] never would concur in upholding domestic slavery. It was a nefarious institution. It was the curse of heaven on the states where it prevailed. Compare the free regions of the Middle States, where a rich & noble cultivation marks the prosperity & happiness of the people, with the misery & poverty which overspread the barren wastes of Va. Maryd. & the other States having slaves. ... Proceed southwardly, and every step you take, through the great regions of slaves, presents a desert increasing with the increasing proportion of these wretched beings.

    Upon what principle is it that the slaves shall be computed in the representation? Are they men? Then make them citizens, and let them vote. Are they property? Why, then, is no other property included? The Houses in this city [Philadelphia] are worth more than all the wretched slaves which cover the rice swamps of South Carolina.

    The admission of slaves into the Representation when fairly explained comes to this: that the inhabitant of Georgia and S. C. who goes to the Coast of Africa, and in defiance of the most sacred laws of humanity tears away his fellow creatures from their dearest connections & damns them to the most cruel bondages, shall have more votes in a Govt. instituted for protection of the rights of mankind, than the Citizen of Pa. or N. Jersey who views with a laudable horror, so nefarious a practice."

    Unlikely that most german women -- especially educated ones -- would want to mate with a 80 IQ syrian; their hot-headedness is diamterically opposed to native german's meeknesss. Arabs aren't hard-working either. It's mostly german women with litte or average education that are doing this, or ones that are very young. Reading elitepartner.de really opens your eyes of what a german educated woman looks for in a man, and muslims certainly don't factor in here.

    It's more likely there will be a new underclass -- Unterschicht -- that is composed of mostly blacks and muslims and a few mixed-race victims who will be torn between two identities which results in less well-being, as evidenced that most african-german or muslim-german children are miserable SJWs that see Germany as racist, yet they don't leave for their african or muslim paradise. Obama also has a pathological hate for whites. Most muslims marry their cousins or at least from the same race anyway, as their holy scriptures requires them to do. I also don't think german educated women would want uneducated and misbehaving parents-in-law. Remember: muslims have YUGE families, as a white german you're the misfit there. It will be an awkward experience; I remember being the only german kid in my schoolfriend's huge turkish family: I was watched with suspicion and contempt.

    I think it's best to deport them instead.

    Few German women will marry or produce out of wedlock children with newly arrived refugees. However, the 2nd generation born from two refugees (or one refugees and family reunification spouse) will out marry at 10%+ with Germans and the generation after that will increase even more. These unions will be between low IQ Arab and African refugees and low IQ Germans. However, the sheer number of these unions could by 2100 produce a mixed race German people.

    Yeah, the musical does play up the New York angle quit a bit. And it also really works the “Hamilton as immigrant from the Caribbean ” angle as well. Interestingly, pre-1960s historiography used to see that as Hamilton’s weakness. The other Founders (John Adams, Jefferson, etc) tended to have deep roots in the regional cultures of mainland Anglo-America. Hamilton didn’t, and that prevented him from fully grasping the American ethos.

    "“The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne".

    No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn't be put in jail.

    You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don't seem the understand the simple(very simple) of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups. But that was not good enough for you. You want ALL Muslims out. How can any reasonable person reading your posts not conclude that you have ulterior motives other than deterring criminality when you vouch for a moratorium on all Muslim immigation?

    What Muslim crimes will you investigate? Under Pakistan's Muslim hudood laws, four (4) adult male Muslims in good standing with the sharia courts must testify AS EYEWITNESSES to a rape before a rapist can be convicted.

    That will surely appeal to your leftist desire to insure that no one is wrongfully convicted... ever. However it also means that the entire country of Pakistan is essentially a "free rape zone" against ethnic and religious minorities (read: "Christians").

    Actually it is a smart tactic. Going after Cruz on this issue now gives Trump an escape route when the inevitable charge of racism is raised in the general election for having gone after Obama for the same reason 4 years ago. It could even pre-empt such an attack...

    As I recall, Trump also cleverly gave himself a little freedom not to pick Cruz as his running mate because he wouldn’t want to have that issue hanging over his campaign as a distraction. If Cruz finishes a strong second to Trump, there might be strong pressure to add Cruz as his VP. As I stated before, I don’t think Cruz would make a good running mate because Trump would probably not need him to win Texas and because Cruz, for all his smarts, does not have the right experience and temperament to be “a heartbeat away from the Presidency.” Being a lightning rod himself, Trump does not need another lightening rod on the ticket. I thought Trump was most impressive in defending New York from Cruz’s cheap shot attack, with Cruz left with that silly grin on his face at the end of the sally. (I am very familiar with Texas and fully aware of the deep suspicions that Texans have of Easterners, especially New Yorkers, that Cruz was trying to tap into. I think Trump rose to the occasion and properly invoked New Yorkers’ response to 9/11 and made Cruz look like a cheap lightweight.)

    Trump probably knows that Senator Scott of South Carolina -- where the debate was held yesterday -- is the obvious choice to unite the establishment base he needs without Cruz's baggage. Scott has been unusually friendly to Trump for an establishment Republican rising star.

    So any available ground to brush off Cruz is worth having. Cruz probably wants a Supreme Court seat more than a bucket of warm spit anyway.

    Half of that belief is the same "anyone but Trump" mentality-push-polling the left tried with Fiorina, Carson, and then Rubio.

    The other half is the recognition that Cruz was smart enough to last this long and raise his profile and avoid making the mistake of taking on Trump head-on until necessary.

    Cruz, however, is an oily, lying mofo. He already told his donors less than a month ago that no matter what he said he wasn't going to deport or build a wall. So no dice, don't believe the hype about his being "aligned" with Trump on the national question.

    Plus beyond that Cruz was extremely dumb not to register his own domain name, which is owned by a lefty who uses it to spout pro-Obama propaganda. Just plain dumb, sophmoric, and idiotic. I know it's small, but it's extremely unpresidential to miss. That's a detail Trump would never have missed---if only because of his ego.

    Race mixing among those of the power elite is likely higher than the rate it’s occurring among the bourgeois
     
    You sure about that?

    It wasn't so long ago that someone pointed out that the only notable interracial marriages in Washington were both Republican-- Phil Gramm and Clarence Thomas. The rate may be higher among their kids-- eg Ramsey Clark, John Updike, David Horowitz (though I've strayed from the "power élite"). But people also have more than one kid, and they all don't swim the Congo, or Yangtze or Euphrates or Indus.

Paul Ryan was dating a black woman for many years before becoming a politician.

    Unlikely that most german women -- especially educated ones -- would want to mate with a 80 IQ syrian; their hot-headedness is diamterically opposed to native german's meeknesss. Arabs aren't hard-working either. It's mostly german women with litte or average education that are doing this, or ones that are very young. Reading elitepartner.de really opens your eyes of what a german educated woman looks for in a man, and muslims certainly don't factor in here.

    It's more likely there will be a new underclass -- Unterschicht -- that is composed of mostly blacks and muslims and a few mixed-race victims who will be torn between two identities which results in less well-being, as evidenced that most african-german or muslim-german children are miserable SJWs that see Germany as racist, yet they don't leave for their african or muslim paradise. Obama also has a pathological hate for whites. Most muslims marry their cousins or at least from the same race anyway, as their holy scriptures requires them to do. I also don't think german educated women would want uneducated and misbehaving parents-in-law. Remember: muslims have YUGE families, as a white german you're the misfit there. It will be an awkward experience; I remember being the only german kid in my schoolfriend's huge turkish family: I was watched with suspicion and contempt.

    I think it's best to deport them instead.

    Not everyone in a population is well educated or above average. Half the German population is either average or below average by German standards. Take the bottom third of the German female population; they’re more likely to get involved with these non-white migrants and from them comes the mixed-race underclass that ends up being a permanent albatross around everyone’s neck. They’re the back door by which this problem enters and little by little it becomes a huge problem.

    “He’d be pretty harmless there.”

    Until something happened to President Trump, as has happened numerous times in the short history of the Republic (starting with William Henry Harrison). Somebody earlier alluded to Carson as “amiable.” I would agree if you added the word “dunce” after “amiable.” For the life of me, I fail to see why anybody would think this guy would make a good President. And I concede that he may be the best “pediatric neurosurgeon” in the world.

    "“The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne".

    No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn't be put in jail.

    You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don't seem the understand the simple(very simple) of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups. But that was not good enough for you. You want ALL Muslims out. How can any reasonable person reading your posts not conclude that you have ulterior motives other than deterring criminality when you vouch for a moratorium on all Muslim immigation?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    NY was important in the Revolution in the sense that they were the main ones who were undecided. NE was firmly in favor of declaring independence and the South was in favor, but NY was on the fence until the very last moment. So they were like the holdout on a jury who prevents the jury from rendering a verdict. This made NY central, but not in a good way.

    There was a very substantial and wealthy Loyalist community in NY who ended up on the losing side and who had to flee. Columbia University was founded as King’s College by royal charter in the 1750s. Its leadership had Loyalist sympathies and they ended up taking their charter with them to Nova Scotia where they re-founded the university (while the winning revolutionaries got a new charter and a new name from the NY Legislature).

    Trump showed he was the only serious candidate in the race. A person willing to analyze issues from an intellectual position as opposed to the PC narrative. This was highlighted when they asked him if he wanted to walk-back he his ban on Muslim immigration. Trump said no. Then they asked every other candidate what they thought of his position and they all said in one way or the other - "we will not be able to form a coalition with middle-eastern countries to fight ISIS if we do not let Muslim immigration to the US." What?!?!? Everyone one of them said this.

    Countries will form alliances with the US because we are an economic and military superpower. They will form alliances if they perceive such alliances to be in their best interest. Sure they might want the US to allow Muslim immigration but none who are worried about selling oil, or defeating ISIS are going to say "we won't ally with you because you won't let Muslim immigration into your country." The idea is stupid and all the candidates, other than Trump, showed they are cowards afraid of standing up to the PC narrative and being called a racist or bigot. I honestly don't understand how anyone could support someone from that group of anti-intellectual weaklings.

    This was Trump's best performance. I hope it will be reflected in the polls and ultimately the ballot box.

    Investigators believe Miss Olsen met him in the early hours of the morning last Friday after leaving a nightclub, the Montecarla.

    The pair walked back to her flat in Via Santa Monica and had consensual sex, possibly under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

    But a furious argument developed after Miss Olsen told him he had to leave the apartment because her Italian boyfriend was about to arrive.

    Diaw became enraged, accusing her of treating him “like a dog.”
     
    And then he killed her and stole her phone and switched the SIM card in it. I can't imagine what would be running through my mind if I killed someone, even accidently. But swiping any of their personal property wouldn't be among my thoughts. It not just diminished intelligence but a diminished humanity. Maybe that's redundant?

    Sorry if this offends, but whenever I read of a racist/murderer who steals his victims possessions *after* he committed the ‘main crime’, as some sort of ‘added bonus’, then I’m pretty damned sure that the criminal is black.

You can look up Carter's record in Georgia, but it looks like governors who became president were active against black crime.

In Cologne, it took the media days to report on what happened, and only then because social media practically forced them to.

    It’s a no-brainer that it’s individuals that commit crimes (sometimes together, as in Cologne, Rotherham, etc.). But it’s also a no-brainer that individuals of different cultures can see things, including crimes, in ways that differ from host cultures. Rape is obviously not that big of a deal to far too many Muslim men. Why risk it? Would you want your daughter living in a place like Cologne on New Year’s Eve? Cui bono?

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups. But that was not good enough for you. You want ALL Muslims out. How can any reasonable person reading your posts not conclude that you have ulterior motives other than deterring criminality when you vouch for a moratorium on all Muslim immigration?

    It isn’t racist to not want your culture changed, to want to live in a world in which you can pass down your own culture to your own kids; where there are jobs at fair wages that aren’t driven down by immigration; where one language is spoken; where there is a shared idea of the True, Good, and Beautiful; where your culture isn’t watered-down to comply with the sensitivities of immigrant cultures — e.g., where saying “Merry Christmas” doesn’t have to become something offensive; where social trust is high because there’s a shared vision of the True, Good, and Beautiful; where people who want to stone homosexuals aren’t imported by the millions and the same with people who think women should be covered head to toed lest they be seen — and should be treated — as whores; etc. And this is a thousand times truer when identity politics rule the day and groups are pitted against each other all the time (yay democracy!).

    Investigators believe Miss Olsen met him in the early hours of the morning last Friday after leaving a nightclub, the Montecarla.

    The pair walked back to her flat in Via Santa Monica and had consensual sex, possibly under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

    But a furious argument developed after Miss Olsen told him he had to leave the apartment because her Italian boyfriend was about to arrive.

    Diaw became enraged, accusing her of treating him “like a dog.”
     
    And then he killed her and stole her phone and switched the SIM card in it. I can't imagine what would be running through my mind if I killed someone, even accidently. But swiping any of their personal property wouldn't be among my thoughts. It not just diminished intelligence but a diminished humanity. Maybe that's redundant?

    But swiping any of their personal property wouldn’t be among my thoughts. It not just diminished intelligence but a diminished humanity. Maybe that’s redundant?

    But you are assuming that what he is saying is true, which it might not be. My experience of criminals, of which I have some, is that they will always come up with a version of events that presents themselves in the best possible light, and that they will rarely tell the truth, especially if a judicial outcome is pending.

    In this particular case, the finding of a used condom in the toilet, presumably containing his semen, obviously limits the fabric of plausible stories that may be woven in his defense, but we still don’t really know if the real reason for using a condom was for contraceptive purposes in mutually agreeable sexual intercourse, or intended as an attempt to dispose of DNA evidence in a rape.

    As in the Amanda Knox/Meredith Kerchner murder case, it seems that the Italian police are predisposed to believe that bizarre sex games precede murders, which seems rather odd and possibly tells us more about the Italians than about these foreign killers.

    On the other hand this explication contradicts modern legal ideas , namely that the punishment of a person is justified as a means for the deterring of third persons (so-called “general prevention”).

    The Basic Law was clearly enacted in reaction to the Nazis, who did not respect human dignity and did not hesitate to regard certain people as sub-human and therefore not deserving of the protection of law or even life.

    No legal right is absolute - the US constitution forbids involuntary servitude, but not for those convicted of a crime. Whereas blacks, Jews, the disabled, etc. were once capable of having their human dignity violated simply for being born as such, those who commit crimes voluntarily place themselves in that position and so there is no contradiction.

    There is a way out of the box that the Germans have put themselves in - those who violate human dignity, such as the "boys" in Cologne, subject themselves to the punishment of the law just as much as if they were Nazi war criminals (the popular meme was backward - those coming into Germany were not like Jewish refugees but more like the Ukrainian Nazi camp guards who fled west when they lost the war). Germany has made a huge mistake in taking in those undeserving of sympathy in the 1st place, but it will need to greatly strengthen its law enforcement (which was geared toward an up until now more law abiding European society) and root out the savages . The police were completely unprepared for this new population.

    How are you going to do this? First world countries might have up-to-date criminal databases. But these people are not coming from the first world. The logistics of vetting a half a million people per year coming from lands without sophisticated criminal databases is beyond the reach of our immigration authorities.

    What Muslim crimes will you investigate? Under Pakistan’s Muslim hudood laws, four (4) adult male Muslims in good standing with the sharia courts must testify AS EYEWITNESSES to a rape before a rapist can be convicted.

    That will surely appeal to your leftist desire to insure that no one is wrongfully convicted… ever. However it also means that the entire country of Pakistan is essentially a “free rape zone” against ethnic and religious minorities (read: “Christians”).

    Why do you want these people infesting the West? As Evil White People do our women and children somehow deserve it?

    Why should we have all the fun? If the liberals love this magnificent diversity so much, why can't they move to the Middle East or Africa? After all, if they are into freedoms as much as they claim, then why force refugees/immigrants onto people and communities in the US and Europe, who don't want them- the opposite of freedom. On the other hand, they would get to exercise their freedom by going there. And if this diversity is so wonderful, then every day should be a spiritual orgy surrounded by vibrant sun people- why deprive themselves of it? Why drop immigrants into the middle of Kansas and give such wonderful joy to mouth-breathing rednecks? And for that matter, why subject these poor,wonderful immigrants to communities of the most evil people to ever exist? At the very least, if not moving to third world countries, the liberals could instead accept these immigrants into their own communities instead, where they would be welcomed, treated well, where the liberals would get to be surrounded by all that wonderful diversity has to offer.

    "One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven’t seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America’s history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion’s Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker."

    Gouverneur Morris, who penned the Preamble to the US Constitution and drafted the final text of the document itself, was also a New Yorker. He was a serial philanderer, which may explain why he doesn't get the ink of the other Founding Fathers. He was present in France during the French Revolution and his diaries during the period (which are online via Google books) offer a unique inside perspective to what was going on in Paris (he dined with Talleyrand for example, and sheltered loyalists hiding from the Jacobins). Brookhiser's bio is a good read. I also recommend Gotham, a monster history of NYC, though it was so thick I had to cut it into four pieces so I could hold it in my hands.

    Hamilton was well known for carrying on an affair with a married woman. The husband learned of the affair and used it to blackmail Hamilton.

    However, Hamilton was not in Burr’s league. Aaron Burr’s journals detail his numerous sexual encounters – he would screw anything he could get his hands on, including men and (even more shockingly) he shared his journal with his daughter. Hamilton was more like Eisenhower who (probably) had a single mistress during wartime, while Burr was more like JFK – an insatiable amoral monster who wanted fresh meat every night. Burr had a couple of children with his East Indian maidservant – interestingly these children were considered black and joined the African-American community of Philadelphia.

    Burr was the real NY hustler of the bunch – always working a con. If he had been elected President he would have been the most corrupt President in US history – he was the kind of a guy who would not have been above selling the US out to its enemies for the right price.

  179. ““The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne.”

    Hey, Steve, didn’t you read the carbon unit that calls itself “the saker”?

    Those German women were all asking for it, because “the saker” talked about some girl he saw or heard about or read about or saw a picture of in some country he was visiting or in the media or somewhere who was “dressing like a slut.”

    Demonstrating that the old-timey Second Wave non-PC feminists of the punk ’70s were right when they noted that it appears to be a feature of politically conservative men–of all faiths and nations–that
    a) they cannot control expression of their sexual impulses and
    b) live in a constant state of fevered challenge to their chastity that can only be vented/corrected via punishment or assault which
    c) generally chooses white women of Northern European ancestry to project itself onto.

    If “conservatives” want to know why their politics and party have failed, they might look into this HBD perspective and their own genetic tendencies (since politics seems to be hardwired)…

    …and particularly the incursion into the Republican Party in the 1950s and 1960s of sons and daughters of “whites” whose parents immigrated in the late 1800s and early 1900s from Eastern and Southern Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Arabic and Jewish Near East.

    You know, the lower-IQ, weaker impulse control, outside-the-Hajnal-Line immigrants that the white progressive eugenics movement was trying to rein in in the US of the late 1800s and early 1900s. (See M.G. Miles on that phenomenon. “Being a Progressive yesterday: race.”)

    In my experience in the punk ’70s, many of those old non-PC feminists (none inside Academe, most of them tradeswomen) were pushing back against macho conservative “white” men who came more from r than K breeding pools, and were trying to inflict their reactionary sexuality on founding stock white women of Nordic, Nordic Celtic, and Germanic genome.

    By 1972 they were already being labeled racists and nazis by their more bolshie and usually Eskimo/Eastern European genome academic sistahs who were turning feminism into something else entirely.

    The only common element here is the deep-seated conviction that white women of those genomes deserve to be punished.

    Also that the grandsons of our earlier r-strategy European immigrants haven’t themselves assimilated all that well to the original founding stock of whites in America. But that’s OK, because they’ve turned the republic into something else, largely thanks to the automation of the MSM.

    And what a bright side that is! The entertainment, music, culture, and advertising industries have made godzillions of dollars off of morphing sexual atavism into sexual degeneracy. And convincing white women of North Sea and Germanic genome that they are the problem for not putting out…then turning around and blaming them for having done so when they do.

    The US republic was an HBD-based experiment by a very specific regional genome. That today’s “liberals” and “conservatives” alike hate no matter how much they wave flags or spout memes.

    Is it OK for a Jewish woman to say ” I only date Jewish men” and if so, why is one OK and not the other? The Constitution says that we all have to live with each other, not that we have to date each other. In any case, apparently some very large % of Christian men/women don’t have this scruple and are dating/marrying Jews, which is leading to the very rapid dissolution of the Jewish community in America.

Benjamin was the first Jew to be elected to the United States Senate who had not renounced the religion, and the first of that faith to hold a Cabinet position in North America.

    A bit of a strawman, that. Amongst left-wing Reform Jews expressing such a sentiment would be considered approximately as awful as saying you were voting for Ted Cruz. Friendships would be lost. If for no other reason than that you would be implicitly excluding blacks.

    Acting out such a sentiment is of course fine, just as it's - for now - fine for Taylor Swift to only date white men. But if she said she only dates white men then all the record labels and event promoters would drop her in a microsecond and her career would be over.

    Burr was the real NY hustler of the bunch - always working a con. If he had been elected President he would have been the most corrupt President in US history - he was the kind of a guy who would not have been above selling the US out to its enemies for the right price.

    "One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven’t seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America’s history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion’s Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker."

    Gouverneur Morris, who penned the Preamble to the US Constitution and drafted the final text of the document itself, was also a New Yorker. He was a serial philanderer, which may explain why he doesn't get the ink of the other Founding Fathers. He was present in France during the French Revolution and his diaries during the period (which are online via Google books) offer a unique inside perspective to what was going on in Paris (he dined with Talleyrand for example, and sheltered loyalists hiding from the Jacobins). Brookhiser's bio is a good read. I also recommend Gotham, a monster history of NYC, though it was so thick I had to cut it into four pieces so I could hold it in my hands.

    Always been fond of Gouverneur Morris. Some choice quotes:

    “He [Morris] never would concur in upholding domestic slavery. It was a nefarious institution. It was the curse of heaven on the states where it prevailed. Compare the free regions of the Middle States, where a rich & noble cultivation marks the prosperity & happiness of the people, with the misery & poverty which overspread the barren wastes of Va. Maryd. & the other States having slaves. … Proceed southwardly, and every step you take, through the great regions of slaves, presents a desert increasing with the increasing proportion of these wretched beings.

    Upon what principle is it that the slaves shall be computed in the representation? Are they men? Then make them citizens, and let them vote. Are they property? Why, then, is no other property included? The Houses in this city [Philadelphia] are worth more than all the wretched slaves which cover the rice swamps of South Carolina.

    The admission of slaves into the Representation when fairly explained comes to this: that the inhabitant of Georgia and S. C. who goes to the Coast of Africa, and in defiance of the most sacred laws of humanity tears away his fellow creatures from their dearest connections & damns them to the most cruel bondages, shall have more votes in a Govt. instituted for protection of the rights of mankind, than the Citizen of Pa. or N. Jersey who views with a laudable horror, so nefarious a practice.”

    Dunno; there's some interesting data in the article from THE AMERICAN PROSPECT:

    Social identities: Unlike census data, data from a 2015 survey by the Pew Research Center illuminate the feelings and experiences of individuals with mixed backgrounds. According to “Multiracial in America,” the Pew report based on the survey, most Americans from mixed backgrounds do not think of themselves as multiracial. For those who are white and Asian, the affinities with the white group are strong. By a two-to-one margin, they say that they have more in common with whites than with Asians. They report, in addition, feeling more accepted by whites and having more white than Asian friends. Those who are white and black exhibit a very different profile. The majority believe that others see them as black. They also have much closer ties to their black relatives and are very likely to report encountering discrimination, including being “unfairly stopped by the police.”
     

    For instance, of those who reported a mixture of Asian and white parentage in either 2000 or 2010, 36 percent appeared as only white in the other census (and 22 percent as only Asian). Those who report mixed white and Hispanic family backgrounds to the census are counted as Hispanics of white race, a huge group that includes about half of all the nation’s Hispanics. Yet, of the individuals who appeared in this group in either 2000 or 2010, 12 percent said they were non-Hispanic and white in the other year. In other words, many Americans with mixed Asian or Hispanic family origins identify with the white majority some of the time.
     

    The one exception to this pattern of “leaning” white involves individuals of mixed white and African American heritages, who are much more likely to indicate that they are only black than only white (33 percent versus 16 percent).

    From my experienced, most mixed-race people (Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Native) basically are pretty culturally similar to whites. One exception is are mixed-race blacks, who generally assimilate into black culture. The other exception is Muslims, who often identify with a pan-Islamic identity.

    In Texas, White/Hispanic blends usually have identified as white and assimilated into Texan culture.

    No one is saying that all of the Muslims are criminals and rapists.

    Jackson's gone. Hamilton doesn't need to be replaced, he just get reinvented so he can stay on the money.

    And if indeed, the trend in history is "praising the Whig Party’s progressive views on race and interest in infrastructure spending, counterpoised to Jackson’s racism, small government dogmatism, and crank monetary views," then it's obvious who should be the subject of the next best-selling revisionist biography:

    Henry Clay. Big on "internal improvements," was the spoiler in the 1824 election thus earning Jackson's lifelong hatred, tried to make compromises between slave states and free states. Could make for a great tale of a well-intentioned tragic figure. And he was from Kentucky. Who from that state could back the project?

    Someone needs to get Jennifer Lawrence on the phone. Tell her "you put up the money, this time you'll get to direct Bradley Cooper instead of just playing his girlfriend."

    In a perfect world, Steve Sailer would be the law professor that the Republican occasionally go to for advice. And I'd be running a studio.

    No small irony that in HBO’s “John Adams” Jefferson was depicted as the sensible Founder, looking to avoid war, foreign entanglements and Big Government. Yes, the slavery thing is problematic, but by every account Jefferson was at least conflicted, which didn’t stop him from keeping slaves…and more. 2015 doesn’t look back kindly on slaveholding, even if “Brown Sugar” still gets some classic rock airtime. Meanwhile Hamilton was depicted as a loon hellbent on a YUGE government and mercantile expansion, including the first attempt at a federal “bank”, which didn’t work very well.

    As I recall, Trump also cleverly gave himself a little freedom not to pick Cruz as his running mate because he wouldn't want to have that issue hanging over his campaign as a distraction. If Cruz finishes a strong second to Trump, there might be strong pressure to add Cruz as his VP. As I stated before, I don't think Cruz would make a good running mate because Trump would probably not need him to win Texas and because Cruz, for all his smarts, does not have the right experience and temperament to be "a heartbeat away from the Presidency." Being a lightning rod himself, Trump does not need another lightening rod on the ticket. I thought Trump was most impressive in defending New York from Cruz's cheap shot attack, with Cruz left with that silly grin on his face at the end of the sally. (I am very familiar with Texas and fully aware of the deep suspicions that Texans have of Easterners, especially New Yorkers, that Cruz was trying to tap into. I think Trump rose to the occasion and properly invoked New Yorkers' response to 9/11 and made Cruz look like a cheap lightweight.)

    Trump probably knows that Senator Scott of South Carolina — where the debate was held yesterday — is the obvious choice to unite the establishment base he needs without Cruz’s baggage. Scott has been unusually friendly to Trump for an establishment Republican rising star.

    So any available ground to brush off Cruz is worth having. Cruz probably wants a Supreme Court seat more than a bucket of warm spit anyway.

    Hopefully demographic change will take power away from white racists

    Take a look in the mirror, if you’re looking for a racist. You’re obsessed with the racism of the least racist people on earth, while you ignore the racism of the rest of the world, most prominent therein being that of your tribe.

    Go fix the Jewish Apartheid Reich. That’s where the racism is.

    Less than 1% of Dingos will actually eat your baby, but I doubt you let wild dogs roam your house.

    I frankly don’t think that there are any good rebuttals outside of “racists” make them do it, so once we get rid of all you racists, the world will live together in harmony. But then, that’s tautology not debate.

    Nick & co are the racists. Non-white immigration into white countries is the Most Valuable Prize In The Universe. It’s all that matters.

    40% of immigrants/asylum seekers from north africa become criminals within the first year of their arrival according to statistics from the police of cologne.

    You’re just proving Nicky the white-hating racist’s point: not all north african immigrants/asylum seekers are criminals.

    “we will not be able to form a coalition with middle-eastern countries to fight ISIS if we do not let Muslim immigration to the US.” What?!?!? Everyone one of them said this.

    Don’t look so surprised. This is actually one of the tactics most favored by leftists: “If you don’t grovel and fawn before the non-whites, they will punish you.” They reach for it constantly because there’s no inherent down-side to white (or pretty much any other non-black) racial nationalism, so they have to come up with something external instead.

    It should be pointed that many of those Muslim countries that supposedly would form the grand coalition against ISIS also bar Muslim “Syrian refugees” from their territories.

    Excellent point.

    I agree with the author! I have been saying this for years! Not even one percent of one percent of Nazis killed Jews in the Holocaust! Most German Nazis just went about their daily workaday business, going to work, coming home, listening to music, reading the paper, yet think of all the bad press they have been getting for decades! It is so unfair! Heck, many countries even send them to prison just for SPEAKING about their religion!

    Hahaha perfect.

    That’s a detail Trump would never have missed—if only because of his ego.

    Everybody acts like Trump’s yoooge ego is a liability. I don’t see that as necessarily so. It’s more complicated than that. A yoooge ego can mean “I do what I want, I betray who I want,” or it can mean “eff the donor class, I got here without ‘em and I made promises that I intend to keep, because that’s how I roll.” Arrogance is related to honor.

    "The almost unbelievable plunge into insanity—started two years ago already—was reported—in a positive pro-refugee light—by the Allehanda newspaper in Sweden, under the title “Fired up for Sniping,” (Laddade för prickskytte, literally “Charged up for Sniping”) and shows a large number of Third Worlders being taught how to target shoot with sniper rifles on a formal shooting ground in Sollefteå, central Sweden."

    Unf*ckinbelievable. I originally attributed the "Syrian refugee" invasion to "insanity." But now I think these people are utterly brainless.

    That’s probably far too kind. Just an educated guess, but at best, he probably softballs Israel. More likely, he gives ‘em a pass. Faux humanitarian, in any case.

    Roger Cohen of the New York Times and Neil Steinberg of the Chicago Sun Times have absolutely dreadful, terrible on the issue of mass Islamic male migration to Europe, the West this year.

    They're doubling down that Europe, the West must accept unlimited numbers of Muslim male migrants, anyone who says differently is an evil NAZI as bad as the worst immigration restrictionists who wouldn't take Jewish children fleeing the NAZI Holocaust:

    Regular Germans have a name for these writers like Roger Cohen and Neil Steinberg

    Lugenpresse - Lying Press

    Sadly a disproportionate % of the Lib Left Lugenpresse in the USA is ethnic Jewish.

    Why should we have all the fun? If the liberals love this magnificent diversity so much, why can’t they move to the Middle East or Africa? After all, if they are into freedoms as much as they claim, then why force refugees/immigrants onto people and communities in the US and Europe, who don’t want them- the opposite of freedom. On the other hand, they would get to exercise their freedom by going there. And if this diversity is so wonderful, then every day should be a spiritual orgy surrounded by vibrant sun people- why deprive themselves of it? Why drop immigrants into the middle of Kansas and give such wonderful joy to mouth-breathing rednecks? And for that matter, why subject these poor,wonderful immigrants to communities of the most evil people to ever exist? At the very least, if not moving to third world countries, the liberals could instead accept these immigrants into their own communities instead, where they would be welcomed, treated well, where the liberals would get to be surrounded by all that wonderful diversity has to offer.

    "the inhabitant of Georgia and S. C. who goes to the Coast of Africa, and in defiance of the most sacred laws of humanity tears away his fellow creatures from their dearest connections & damns them to the most cruel bondages..."

    Governeur Morris was a sentimental softy. By the time the slaves made it to the coast of Africa, they had long ago been torn away from their dearest connections - by other Africans.

    The slightly lucky ones got sold. 'Cause if they didn't get sold, their African captors would just kill them on the spot.

    The very lucky ones made it to the USA. where they not only survived, but multiplied, in the most remarkable way.

    "...the most cruel bondages?" Well, no, not really. No where near, in fact. There's a lot of competition for the title of history's top victims - and the USA's slaves & their descendants aren't seriously in the running.

    Governeur Morris was a sentimental softy.

    Hey, if being a sentiment softy means that fewer Blacks were imported to Anglo-America…..Well, that sounds OK to me.

    The very lucky ones made it to the USA. where they not only survived, but multiplied, in the most remarkable way.

    Slave reproduction rates in mainland Anglo-America are truly remarkable. Indeed, I’ve had to remind people who start jabbering about the demographic impact of slaves on Ancient Rome that Anglo-America is the exception, not the rule.

    Women are not attracted to the same things men are. Darker skin, lower iqs, penchants for violence are as attractive to women as they are turn offs to men. Pretty, high iq women are the worst in that regard.

    You’ve been watching the Kardashians too much. Just look into your own community. I don’t think Jewish women are known for trying to get low IQ, violent men.

    Because the apparatus of public opinion formation is a valuable ecological niche, and it will be controlled by those pursuing a group rather than individualist strategy.

    E.O. Wilson tells us that "social insects control the center of the land environment, while solitary insects predominate in the margins," and there's no reason it should be any different for people than for insects.

    For thousands of years the center of the land environment was the area where Africa, Asia, and Europe came together. Theory tells us we should expect cohesive (ethnocentric) groups to come from this region, and this is in fact the case. The same qualities that allowed such people to control the center of the land environment equip them to control the central institutions of our societies.

    It might be a way for a politician to hedge against the browning of America and keep the family dynasty relevant (Jeb Bush comes to mind). Once your kids are Hispanic or black, they're 'diverse' and able to get those votes. Obama is sort of an accidental example of this--his mom was very much a lefty elite type.

    The 'New York values' thing was kind of funny; if you checked it out on Twitter there were lots of people you wouldn't expect applauding Trump, or else Jewish pundits saying they were surprised the word wasn't code for 'Jewish'. (Which even I was skeptical about--isn't the nation's biggest city always going to have different values than the rural areas?)

    Being from there, I'm actually starting to like Trump, though I'm still convinced he's running a scam on the white working class.

    9/11 was a big bonding moment for New York and the rest of America.

    Dunno; there's some interesting data in the article from THE AMERICAN PROSPECT:

    Social identities: Unlike census data, data from a 2015 survey by the Pew Research Center illuminate the feelings and experiences of individuals with mixed backgrounds. According to “Multiracial in America,” the Pew report based on the survey, most Americans from mixed backgrounds do not think of themselves as multiracial. For those who are white and Asian, the affinities with the white group are strong. By a two-to-one margin, they say that they have more in common with whites than with Asians. They report, in addition, feeling more accepted by whites and having more white than Asian friends. Those who are white and black exhibit a very different profile. The majority believe that others see them as black. They also have much closer ties to their black relatives and are very likely to report encountering discrimination, including being “unfairly stopped by the police.”
     

    For instance, of those who reported a mixture of Asian and white parentage in either 2000 or 2010, 36 percent appeared as only white in the other census (and 22 percent as only Asian). Those who report mixed white and Hispanic family backgrounds to the census are counted as Hispanics of white race, a huge group that includes about half of all the nation’s Hispanics. Yet, of the individuals who appeared in this group in either 2000 or 2010, 12 percent said they were non-Hispanic and white in the other year. In other words, many Americans with mixed Asian or Hispanic family origins identify with the white majority some of the time.
     

    The one exception to this pattern of “leaning” white involves individuals of mixed white and African American heritages, who are much more likely to indicate that they are only black than only white (33 percent versus 16 percent).

    From my experienced, most mixed-race people (Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Native) basically are pretty culturally similar to whites. One exception is are mixed-race blacks, who generally assimilate into black culture. The other exception is Muslims, who often identify with a pan-Islamic identity.

    In Texas, White/Hispanic blends usually have identified as white and assimilated into Texan culture.

    It will be interesting to see who gets kicked off the currency: Hamilton or Jackson?

    One other aspect of Hamilton the musical, I would guess (I haven't seen the Broadway show, but I have read Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton that inspired the musical), is that it is seen as emphasizing the centrality of New York to America's history. American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion's Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. But Hamilton was an if-I-can-make-it-there-I-can-make-it-anywhere type New Yorker.

    “American historiography has tended to be written from either a New England or Southern perspective. For example, the most influential work of recent American history, Albion’s Seed, pretty much ignores New York City. ”

    And in Joel Garreau’s “The Nine Nations of North America,” (1981, Houghton Mifflin) the author names Manhattan, the District of Columbia, Alaska and Hawaii as places that should not be considered part of any North American nation. He wrote:

    “Not only are there places that refuse to act in ways their location and resources would predict. But their behavior is viewed as being in the weird-to-incomprehensible range by the standards of the rest of this diverse continent. When viewed from the perspective of Nine Nations, they can only be described as aberrations.”

    They never got any Ethiopians, certainly helped with that. The Ethiopians are exceptionally loyal citizens, but in most other measurements, they are straight East African.

    "“The dignity of a person is untouchable” … unless she’s a German woman on New Year’s Eve in Cologne".

    No one is saying that criminals, including Muslim ones, shouldn't be put in jail.

    You are essentially stating that all those Muslim immigrants that entered Germany are criminals that will, undoubtedly, rape German women, and equating allowing their entrance into the country with enabling the rape of German women. That is your argument in a nutshell.

    Yet, statistics clearly point out that the vast majority of Muslims in Germany or France are not criminals. In fact, Muslims that kill and rape are far less than 1% . The ones that committ terrorist attacks are even less than that. They are not even 1% of 1% of Muslims. Yet, you want to use the actions of an extremely small number of rotten fruits to justify a mass immigration moratorium on an entire religious and ethnic group.

    The problem with your argumentation is that you don't seem the understand the simple(very simple) of individual accountability. Rape, murder and terrorist strikes are not committed by religions, or by races, but rather by individuals.

    How can one reading your posts not come to the conclusion that you are hateful racist? I have offered the simple solution of running background checks on immigrants, and denying them residency if they have a criminal past or affiliations with extremist groups. But that was not good enough for you. You want ALL Muslims out. How can any reasonable person reading your posts not conclude that you have ulterior motives other tha
