    "With homomania and transmania fever having passed, is Islamomania next?"

    Trump likes gay people and by all appearances accepts trannies. He's not going to do anything to either group, so progs are going to have a hard time whipping themselves into a frenzy.

    The problem gay people have within social justice activism is that gay marriage was their great demand, and it was satisfied overnight in 2015. Sure, some of them are mad about Christian bakers not baking their wedding cakes, but there's no big fire among them right now.

    The problem trannies have is that they're, almost by definition, insane. Chaz Bono in 2011 and Caitlyn Kardashian in 2015 were supposed to change social attitudes, but they turned out to both be weird freaks. There are lots of likable gay people, but every trannie is a whacko.

    BLM is burning out. After that horrible police massacre in Dallas, enough cynical but responsible Democrats like Hillary understood that they needed to be rhetorically supported but otherwise ignored. That's why we haven't seen so many BLM riots since. Of course, I fully expect that black grievances will be fanned and exploited again in the future, but for now everyone has realized it's best not to poke the bee's nest.

    George Soros understands that he will attract less bad publicity by funding white women to stand around with pink hats than he did by funding thugs to loot and shoot cities. So viola, we have the Women's March.

    I think the three groups the left will use in their protests will be:

    1. Women (grab em by the...)
    2. Hispanic immigrants (The Wall)
    3. Muslims (Refugee Ban)

    I think that what we've seen over the last week and a half, where white women and Muslims are conjoined in some bizarre alliance in whining about Trump, will be the protest mainstay for a long time.

    Why? Mexicans don't like complaining. They would rather relax or would rather be working on something. They think it's unseemly to draw attention to their problems. This makes them more likable and pleasant than other NAMs, but it also makes them ineffective protestors.

    In contrast, white women love to complain. Muslims also love whining about how their feelings are upset and how someone needs to pay for it.

    Reading Annie Lowrey’s twitter page links and checking the latest immigration news it suddenly struck me that the damage is done and the die is cast. These people want to mass surrender to all non-westerners and they already have the numbers here in the USA and they were all set to really really finally do it by electing Hillary for eight years.

    So now it’s clear they do not want the country to go on and it’s better to burn it down then let Trump try to revive it. So they know what to do in order to force Trump to become a real tyrant.

    We are headed toward a new era of mega terrorism. Probably low tech and not nuclear. Massive death can be done with relatively crude bioweapons. This will utterly change the political paradigm.

    The masters of the universe have set it up and it won’t really matter if it’s a false flag or not.

    People have been trying to raise the alarm about Islam for years.

    If 9/11 didn't make you at least wonder about Islam, what will?

    It's an ideology whose main job is to spread itself. Christians and Jews are 2nd class (that's what the Koran says). Other religions are barely human.

    Of the Western countries (excluding former Communist countries) the US has the lowest percentage of Muslims. There are a lot more in Canada...
    , @Moshe
    8 years of Hillary?? Have you been mentored on Whiskey's lap?

    This reminds me of my favorite recent Whiskey moment. There may have been others but unz allows me to block them so only a few sneak past.

    In response to my note that not only did Romney not win but that Obama didn't barracade himself in the whitehouse and declare martial law (and fill camps, and kill all the white men or whatever) but instead handed over the reigns of power to DONALD TRUMP and even attended the inauguration, "whiskey democracy sexy" admitted his error but claimed it was fair because, after all, African leaders don't hand over power in africa so it was an unforeseeable anomoly that Hussein didn't speedboat his way to Spain with all of his gay lovers and secret white mistresses.

    This is why I oppose allowing autistics to do much unsupervised. They sinply lack a proper theory of mind or even reality. They believe fully and entirely whatever someone convinced them through some teeny correlations. They can swing from being a die-hard Jesus preacher to being a due-hard Atheist to being a die-hard Simulationist.

    I don't believe that they are ill, suffering from maladjustment in posession of some sacralized disorder.

    They are fine the way they are just as we all are. Our brains may function differently but there is bo standard against which to measure them (other than Homo Capitalensis, Homo Communensis.. as you're tastes prefer).

    But we the non-autistic should watch a few onion videos by their excellent reporter Michael Falk.

    He tries to figure out how things work and to report on them accurately but he does not have any understanding of thibgs human.

    I have attanded "rationalist" get togethers and aside fir the incredible boredom and amazing awkwardness they generally had no understanding of how things work beyond the comfortable paradigms that they had formed.

    They were super smart, which was awesome, but few understood any more what to do with that knowledge than an encyclopedia does.

    One of the least awkward guys there was actually married and relayed his wife's bright side look at his need to see a doctor once a month as "it meant that he would go outside once a month". He himself was dubious as to the benefits therein but autistics will ALWAYS follow the personal instructions of a trusted non-auto person.

    One of the funniest things I encountered was a post new years "go around the room and share your resolutions so that we can keep each other accountable" session.

    Needless to say almost all of them dealt with inplementing strategies for "increased productivity".

    One guy though, an extraordinarily good looking guy, by FAR the most classically handsome male among us said that his goal dor the year was to have at least one romantic experience with a girl.

    The Record Keeper repeated it aloud as he notes, "Eric's goal for the quarter is.."

    "Wait, the quarter?"

    That's what we're doing, resolutions for the q-

    "Oh, cross it off. Cross it off. I have no resolutions then."

    Back on point, autistic's views of reality can safely be ignored. They have, after all, been confident in an I Robot sort of dystopiafoe decades now. Yet, as with the Messiah and Nuclear Winter the prediction has kept disappointing.

    Bear in mind that I say this as a FRIEND. I mean that sincerely. But that doesn't mean that their views should be given equal weight to, say, non-autistic jewish geniuses like me ;)

    I don't know where you got that idea from. Have you ever worked with Mexicans? They are quite accomplished hissy-fit throwers who try to avoid work whenever possible. A large portion of Mexican behavior can be described as a complicated psychological stratagem of shifting all burdens, labors, expenses, and blame onto one's neighbor, who in turn is trying to do the same. Subtle and blatant lies, dramatic lamentations, and manipulations of the power structure are all part of the game. It is distinctive enough that you can begin to detect it and recognize it as the Mexican Way once you become familiar with it, and even give it a name. I like to call it "Troubles Poker."

    White people, being accustomed to high-trust environments, by and large have little idea of how this all works and have not developed the immune system for dealing with it. Mexicans use that to their advantage.

    Trump ought to immediately push to end ‘birth tourism’ — the concept is simple: no citizenship for any baby born to a mother in the US on a tourist (or other short-term) visa — this should be low-hanging fruit, and his blunt, tell-it-like-it-is style is well-suited to this issue where the blatant absurdity is clear — also there are plenty of regular news stories, eg in liberal outlets like the LAT, to practically make the case for him — then address ‘birthright citizenship’ and ‘anchor babies’ more generally.

    Yes, that's exactly the case. Arabs and Israelis being neighbors was a match made in hell. Arabs are very sensitive, whereas Israelis are perhaps the most brusque race of people on planet Earth. They're both equally stubborn. What has happened is that Israelis do things which humiliate the Arabs, the Arabs violently complain about it, and the Israelis say, "That's your problem and not ours!"

    "As far as the “Christian Arabs” go, I am confident that (in the long run) we will return them to their roots as indigenous Arameans & Copts. Give it a few generations."

    The term "Arab" is in many ways artificial and ambiguous. People who live in the Arabian Peninsula are indisputably "Arab." People in places like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Libya, however, are "Arab" insofar that they're now majority Muslim and they largely speak Arabic. But people in those places acknowledge they have regional identities which precede Islam and the Arabic language dating back thousands of years into the past.

    I think what would need to happen would be for these Arabs to revive their non-Arabic languages among the majority of their population, so they'd be more like Turks or Iranians today. Of course, doing that is next to impossible. I guess they could ban Modern Standard Arabic in their countries and pretend their regional Arabic dialects are really just modern versions of Aramaic or Coptic.

    Of course, there's that lovely Lebanese saying - I'd rather have my hand cut off than to be called an Arab.
  28. Maybe immigration is another aspect of your “female journalists are trying to create a society where they are better looking” theory. White women know they’re relatively beautiful, so with every Mexican or Arab troll that gets added to society, they move rightwards on the beauty curve.

    If a Muslim ever decides to pull a Dylann Roof and shoots up a Black Christian church and the Left mainstream media megaphone still doubles down on we need more Muslim immigrants and Islam is a religion of peace, I am going to think holy shit the Liberal elites truly are dedicated to The Prophet Mohammad. The Liberal elites are not as Atheist as they claim they are. The Liberal elites truly are motivated by their extreme hatred of Christians only no matter what race those Christians are, they don't hate religion in general only Christianity. They see Christianity as representing Western civilization and in order to destroy Western civilization they have to chop off the head of Christianity.

    Reading Annie Lowrey's twitter page links and checking the latest immigration news it suddenly struck me that the damage is done and the die is cast. These people want to mass surrender to all non-westerners and they already have the numbers here in the USA and they were all set to really really finally do it by electing Hillary for eight years.

    So now it's clear they do not want the country to go on and it's better to burn it down then let Trump try to revive it. So they know what to do in order to force Trump to become a real tyrant.

    We are headed toward a new era of mega terrorism. Probably low tech and not nuclear. Massive death can be done with relatively crude bioweapons. This will utterly change the political paradigm.

    The masters of the universe have set it up and it won't really matter if it's a false flag or not.

    8 years of Hillary?? Have you been mentored on Whiskey’s lap?

    This reminds me of my favorite recent Whiskey moment. There may have been others but unz allows me to block them so only a few sneak past.

    In response to my note that not only did Romney not win but that Obama didn’t barracade himself in the whitehouse and declare martial law (and fill camps, and kill all the white men or whatever) but instead handed over the reigns of power to DONALD TRUMP and even attended the inauguration, “whiskey democracy sexy” admitted his error but claimed it was fair because, after all, African leaders don’t hand over power in africa so it was an unforeseeable anomoly that Hussein didn’t speedboat his way to Spain with all of his gay lovers and secret white mistresses.

    This is why I oppose allowing autistics to do much unsupervised. They sinply lack a proper theory of mind or even reality. They believe fully and entirely whatever someone convinced them through some teeny correlations. They can swing from being a die-hard Jesus preacher to being a due-hard Atheist to being a die-hard Simulationist.

    I don’t believe that they are ill, suffering from maladjustment in posession of some sacralized disorder.

    They are fine the way they are just as we all are. Our brains may function differently but there is bo standard against which to measure them (other than Homo Capitalensis, Homo Communensis.. as you’re tastes prefer).

    But we the non-autistic should watch a few onion videos by their excellent reporter Michael Falk.

    He tries to figure out how things work and to report on them accurately but he does not have any understanding of thibgs human.

    I have attanded “rationalist” get togethers and aside fir the incredible boredom and amazing awkwardness they generally had no understanding of how things work beyond the comfortable paradigms that they had formed.

    They were super smart, which was awesome, but few understood any more what to do with that knowledge than an encyclopedia does.

    One of the least awkward guys there was actually married and relayed his wife’s bright side look at his need to see a doctor once a month as “it meant that he would go outside once a month”. He himself was dubious as to the benefits therein but autistics will ALWAYS follow the personal instructions of a trusted non-auto person.

    One of the funniest things I encountered was a post new years “go around the room and share your resolutions so that we can keep each other accountable” session.

    Needless to say almost all of them dealt with inplementing strategies for “increased productivity”.

    One guy though, an extraordinarily good looking guy, by FAR the most classically handsome male among us said that his goal dor the year was to have at least one romantic experience with a girl.

    The Record Keeper repeated it aloud as he notes, “Eric’s goal for the quarter is..”

    “Wait, the quarter?”

    That’s what we’re doing, resolutions for the q-

    “Oh, cross it off. Cross it off. I have no resolutions then.”

    Back on point, autistic’s views of reality can safely be ignored. They have, after all, been confident in an I Robot sort of dystopiafoe decades now. Yet, as with the Messiah and Nuclear Winter the prediction has kept disappointing.

    Bear in mind that I say this as a FRIEND. I mean that sincerely. But that doesn’t mean that their views should be given equal weight to, say, non-autistic jewish geniuses like me ;)

    I also think, from interacting with Western female volunteers in Muslim countries, that they do get off on being around men who aren't politically correct nancy boys, but are also victims of Western imperialism, racism, etc. Just look at all the stories of Western women who run refugee centers, such as what Derbyshire posted recently.

    I don’t know where you got that idea from. Have you ever worked with Mexicans? They are quite accomplished hissy-fit throwers who try to avoid work whenever possible. A large portion of Mexican behavior can be described as a complicated psychological stratagem of shifting all burdens, labors, expenses, and blame onto one’s neighbor, who in turn is trying to do the same. Subtle and blatant lies, dramatic lamentations, and manipulations of the power structure are all part of the game. It is distinctive enough that you can begin to detect it and recognize it as the Mexican Way once you become familiar with it, and even give it a name. I like to call it “Troubles Poker.”

    "I like to call it 'Troubles Poker.'"

    Mexicans like finding ways to shirk responsibilities, but that's definitely a different skill set from marching outside in an angry mob about how the world isn't paying enough attention to your problems.

    Compare how black communities periodically go out in protest about how the whole system is racist against them, with how those million man marches led by Hispanics the NYT keeps warning us about never materialize. Furthermore, however much Mexicans might complain and shift blame to others, they aren't nearly as explosively resentful and eager to be offended by simple misstatements the way blacks, feminists, and Muslims are.

    "White people, being accustomed to high-trust environments, by and large have little idea of how this all works and have not developed the immune system for dealing with it. Mexicans use that to their advantage."

    It's a common theme. In general, Northwest European whites are the most gullible, with some Celts and almost all Mediterraneans and Slavs being notably savvier. The thing is that English is a Northwest European language, so the concepts, ideas, history and literature of being gullible are much more readily accessible than they would have if we all spoke, say, Greek.
  46. I am by nature like Derb a pessimist, so I’m delighted to be wrong, but Obama made a big deal, you might have read about it, regarding his African heritage. I believe he even wrote a book referencing his father, and about RACE AND INHERITANCE.

    Given that most African leaders don’t hand over power, but just create coups, even or especially in East Africa from where Obama hails genetically, making a bet on his inherited nature is playing the odds. Sometimes favorites lose and I was glad to see it. But how different from say, Jomo Kenyatta or Daniel Arap Moi or Kibaki or even Raila Odinga (who launched an anti-Kikikyu murder campaign after being cheated out of the Presidency) is Obama really.

    After all, if Obama’s COUSIN acts a certain way, its a good bet that INHERITANCE will bend him towards that same behavior. And nothing is over either. There is a concerted effort by the media, government, business, and others to remove Trump for “racism” and anyone seeing the SNL “Dear Leader” goodbye to Obama knows that there is considerable elite and popular sentiment for installing Obama as a temporary-permanent replacement to Trump.

    Moshe’s fundamental error is considering Obama a dude like McCain or Romney. He’s not. He’s the son of an East African tribal leader and can be realistically expected to act like one. After all, he’s made a huge deal of how African he is, and there has been no reward for him acting or identifying with his mother’s side.

    People have been trying to raise the alarm about Islam for years.

    If 9/11 didn't make you at least wonder about Islam, what will?

    It's an ideology whose main job is to spread itself. Christians and Jews are 2nd class (that's what the Koran says). Other religions are barely human.

    Of the Western countries (excluding former Communist countries) the US has the lowest percentage of Muslims. There are a lot more in Canada...

    “People have been trying to raise the alarm about Islam for years.”

    Radical Islam.

    “If 9/11 didn’t make you at least wonder about Islam, what will?”

    Conducted by extremists.

    “It’s an ideology whose main job is to spread itself.”

    Same as Judaism and Christianity.

    “Christians and Jews are 2nd class (that’s what the Koran says). Other religions are barely human.”

    And there are Bible passages that state that non-Christians are 2nd class and are other than human.

    “Of the Western countries (excluding former Communist countries) the US has the lowest percentage of Muslims.”

    18 Sid > Muslims also love whining about how their feelings are upset

    My own Arabic is weak, but I am told that a fave complaint of Muslim-Palestinians against zionism, is that it "humiliates" them

    As far as the "Christian Arabs" go, I am confident that (in the long run) we will return them to their roots as indigenous Arameans & Copts. Give it a few generations.

    “My own Arabic is weak, but I am told that a fave complaint of Muslim-Palestinians against zionism, is that it “humiliates” them”

    Yes, that’s exactly the case. Arabs and Israelis being neighbors was a match made in hell. Arabs are very sensitive, whereas Israelis are perhaps the most brusque race of people on planet Earth. They’re both equally stubborn. What has happened is that Israelis do things which humiliate the Arabs, the Arabs violently complain about it, and the Israelis say, “That’s your problem and not ours!”

    “As far as the “Christian Arabs” go, I am confident that (in the long run) we will return them to their roots as indigenous Arameans & Copts. Give it a few generations.”

    The term “Arab” is in many ways artificial and ambiguous. People who live in the Arabian Peninsula are indisputably “Arab.” People in places like Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and Libya, however, are “Arab” insofar that they’re now majority Muslim and they largely speak Arabic. But people in those places acknowledge they have regional identities which precede Islam and the Arabic language dating back thousands of years into the past.

    I think what would need to happen would be for these Arabs to revive their non-Arabic languages among the majority of their population, so they’d be more like Turks or Iranians today. Of course, doing that is next to impossible. I guess they could ban Modern Standard Arabic in their countries and pretend their regional Arabic dialects are really just modern versions of Aramaic or Coptic.

    Of course, there’s that lovely Lebanese saying – I’d rather have my hand cut off than to be called an Arab.

  52. Steve, don’t be so hard on this poor MENA demonstrator. For all we know, he might be quite attractive to gay “bears”.

  53. How well ARE Muslims assimilating into our culture? I keep seeing more and more women wearing headscarves. As a fashion statement they’re unremarkable, but they’re meant to be more than that. It’s a public rejection of the common standards of ‘modest’ dress, and a rejection in the direction of increased taboo and decreased openness and tolerance.

    It seems more that they’re assimilating our culture to their standards.

    The truth is, intersectionality tends to rotate. From roughly 2010 to 2014, gay rights was considered the premiere "Civil Rights" issue. Trayvon Martin's death was covered, but focus soon shifted to gay rights again, and Obama relied more on the "War on Women" to get his coalition out than black grievance. Heck, one of the major reasons why our relationship with Russia tanked in 2013 was the anti-gay propaganda law. That helped spark World War G! Remember how Obama chided Romney for being too anti-Russia? Quite funny in retrospect.

    Of course, concern about gays was overshadowed by Ferguson, and once they got gay marriage in 2015, the left ignored them. It was downright chilling how unconcerned Obama was about Orlando.

    From the summers of 2014 to 2016, roughly from Ferguson to Dallas, blacks enjoyed the most intersectionality. When the Ferguson riots were starting up, the thugs killed a Bosnian Muslim. As far as I can remember, the left mostly ignored the murder. Sure, killing a Muslim is awful... But Bosnians are white Europeans, so he kind of deserved it once he came to America and got white privilege, no?

    Of course, once a BLM thug murdered five cops, the Hillary campaign and Soros realized it would be prudent to continue to support BLM rhetorically, but they stopped fanning and financing their riots.

    Right now, Muslims are enjoying the most intersectionality, largely because of the Muslim Ban. What's notable about Muslims is that the more damage they cause, the more intersectional Pokémon points they achieve. ISIS, for example, is about as evil as you can possibly get. I doubt the SS had the same sadistic relish from exterminating people as ISIS fighters do*. And what's terrifying is that otherother Muslims like Assad, the Iranian Ayatollahs, Al-Qaeda, the Saudis, etc. etc. etc. really aren't that much less evil than ISIS is.

    So no, I doubt progs will suddenly wake up if a Muslim kills a dozen kind-hearted old black ladies in a church before blowing himself up as the cops storm in. They'll just virtue signal harder and carry on.

    And this is why Trump can look forward to two terms.

    He realises that the social cons are in his camp, and he can work with the homosexuals who aren't insane intersectionality fanatics (Thiel, Milo). I'm pretty sure the Left is going to try to provoke some broad Obama style response by trying to run some ridiculous case to SCOTUS. My gut tells me Trump will say its a state's rights issue and leave it be.

    Honestly, do you think the radical homos are any less of a threat to America than Muslims? I think they form a pincer movement against traditional, patriotic Americans and that’s why the Orlando massacre was so confusing to everybody.

    I want marriage to go back to the SC and I want the justices to decide that, no, same-sex marriage isn’t a right found in the constitution.

    A culture of marriage and family can never thrive in a society that celebrates perversity like we’re doing right now. Perhaps Trump doesn’t agree, sadly.

    Why? Mexicans don’t like complaining. They would rather relax or would rather be working on something. They think it’s unseemly to draw attention to their problems.
     
    I don't know where you got that idea from. Have you ever worked with Mexicans? They are quite accomplished hissy-fit throwers who try to avoid work whenever possible. A large portion of Mexican behavior can be described as a complicated psychological stratagem of shifting all burdens, labors, expenses, and blame onto one's neighbor, who in turn is trying to do the same. Subtle and blatant lies, dramatic lamentations, and manipulations of the power structure are all part of the game. It is distinctive enough that you can begin to detect it and recognize it as the Mexican Way once you become familiar with it, and even give it a name. I like to call it "Troubles Poker."

    White people, being accustomed to high-trust environments, by and large have little idea of how this all works and have not developed the immune system for dealing with it. Mexicans use that to their advantage.

    “I like to call it ‘Troubles Poker.’”

    Mexicans like finding ways to shirk responsibilities, but that’s definitely a different skill set from marching outside in an angry mob about how the world isn’t paying enough attention to your problems.

    Compare how black communities periodically go out in protest about how the whole system is racist against them, with how those million man marches led by Hispanics the NYT keeps warning us about never materialize. Furthermore, however much Mexicans might complain and shift blame to others, they aren’t nearly as explosively resentful and eager to be offended by simple misstatements the way blacks, feminists, and Muslims are.

    “White people, being accustomed to high-trust environments, by and large have little idea of how this all works and have not developed the immune system for dealing with it. Mexicans use that to their advantage.”

    It’s a common theme. In general, Northwest European whites are the most gullible, with some Celts and almost all Mediterraneans and Slavs being notably savvier. The thing is that English is a Northwest European language, so the concepts, ideas, history and literature of being gullible are much more readily accessible than they would have if we all spoke, say, Greek.

    I agree wholeheartedly. On a different but related note, it has been interesting to contrast how Islam is treated in the media with how Hinduism is. On the BBC, you'll see stories about how horrible women have it in India on a semi-regular basis, even while Islamophilic stories are being churned out.

    One time, I saw an article on the Harvard Kennedy School's page which said there is "rape culture" within Hinduism. I can't imagine them ever saying that about Islam.

    To be fair, I don't at all doubt that being a woman within conservative Hindu culture is an unenviable experience. At the same time, I know the reason why liberals can get away with labeling Hinduism as "rape culture" is that Hindus won't behead them.

    India is a crummy place to live, but Indians mostly keep their problems to themselves. Again, Muslims terrify liberals, but liberals reinterpret their fear as love and virtue signal over it.

They see Christianity as representing Western civilization and in order to destroy Western civilization they have to chop off the head of Christianity.

    The truth is, intersectionality tends to rotate. From roughly 2010 to 2014, gay rights was considered the premiere “Civil Rights” issue. Trayvon Martin’s death was covered, but focus soon shifted to gay rights again, and Obama relied more on the “War on Women” to get his coalition out than black grievance. Heck, one of the major reasons why our relationship with Russia tanked in 2013 was the anti-gay propaganda law. That helped spark World War G! Remember how Obama chided Romney for being too anti-Russia? Quite funny in retrospect.

    Of course, concern about gays was overshadowed by Ferguson, and once they got gay marriage in 2015, the left ignored them. It was downright chilling how unconcerned Obama was about Orlando.

    From the summers of 2014 to 2016, roughly from Ferguson to Dallas, blacks enjoyed the most intersectionality. When the Ferguson riots were starting up, the thugs killed a Bosnian Muslim. As far as I can remember, the left mostly ignored the murder. Sure, killing a Muslim is awful… But Bosnians are white Europeans, so he kind of deserved it once he came to America and got white privilege, no?

    Of course, once a BLM thug murdered five cops, the Hillary campaign and Soros realized it would be prudent to continue to support BLM rhetorically, but they stopped fanning and financing their riots.

    Right now, Muslims are enjoying the most intersectionality, largely because of the Muslim Ban. What’s notable about Muslims is that the more damage they cause, the more intersectional Pokémon points they achieve. ISIS, for example, is about as evil as you can possibly get. I doubt the SS had the same sadistic relish from exterminating people as ISIS fighters do*. And what’s terrifying is that otherother Muslims like Assad, the Iranian Ayatollahs, Al-Qaeda, the Saudis, etc. etc. etc. really aren’t that much less evil than ISIS is.

    So no, I doubt progs will suddenly wake up if a Muslim kills a dozen kind-hearted old black ladies in a church before blowing himself up as the cops storm in. They’ll just virtue signal harder and carry on.

    I gather we must move in some very different circles, you and I. I'm not aware of any hijab fetishism going on around here, none of the men that I know are politically correct nancy boys, and I do not know anyone, male or female, who would be even remotely interested in running a refugee center or who would even dream of such a thing.

    I understand the need to talk about these particular manifestations of Western decline, but I'm doubtful that they possess much street-level actuality outside of the rarefied ranks of NPR-listening chatterboxs.

    “I gather we must move in some very different circles, you and I.”

    I could probably count the number of days I’ve been in red states if I were allowed to use my toes. Regardless of where you live, however, you certainly are obliged to keep track of trends in the HBD blogosphere.

    “I’m not aware of any hijab fetishism going on around here, none of the men that I know are politically correct nancy boys,”

    Good for you, but have you not been paying attention to the “Submission” meme here on Steve Sailer’s blog? You can’t tell me there’s no sex appeal with the hijabi girl poster, not with those doe eyes and red lips.

    “…and I do not know anyone, male or female, who would be even remotely interested in running a refugee center or who would even dream of such a thing.”

    Again, I’m jealous. But check out John Derbyshire’s “Racketeering Refugees” column.

    People like him (make fun of Christianity because there's no pushback) make me sick.

    And it's news sites too. NYT published a whiny piece on why they wouldn't publish even one sample Mohammed cartoon ("it would offend some of our readers").

    But they had no problem publishing photos of "art" consisting of, I think it was Mary, surrounded by elephant dung. I made a special point to check for it, because I knew it's the sort of thing they just love. I made a screen shot in case they decided to remove it due to their hypocrisy.

    AFAIK, it's still there.

    I agree wholeheartedly. On a different but related note, it has been interesting to contrast how Islam is treated in the media with how Hinduism is. On the BBC, you’ll see stories about how horrible women have it in India on a semi-regular basis, even while Islamophilic stories are being churned out.

    One time, I saw an article on the Harvard Kennedy School’s page which said there is “rape culture” within Hinduism. I can’t imagine them ever saying that about Islam.

    To be fair, I don’t at all doubt that being a woman within conservative Hindu culture is an unenviable experience. At the same time, I know the reason why liberals can get away with labeling Hinduism as “rape culture” is that Hindus won’t behead them.

    India is a crummy place to live, but Indians mostly keep their problems to themselves. Again, Muslims terrify liberals, but liberals reinterpret their fear as love and virtue signal over it.

    Only Islam has a "phobia" word. That tells you all need to know about the threat they pose.
