From The Spectator:

Immigration helps explain Sweden’s school trouble
Gabriel Heller Sahlgren 10 August 2015 17:56

Sweden’s education performance has faltered in the past decades, with scores tumbling in the OECD’s international Pisa survey since the early 2000s. Both the Guardian and the BBC have recently looked into this phenomenon.

I’m a fan of the giant international PISA tests, but I’m not a huge fan of trusting minor differences between countries or differences over time in one country to support whatever your favorite theory might be. What goes into influencing PISA scores is extremely complicated and murky, and I’m far from convinced that things as ephemeral as, say, how big of a pep rally they hold for the students taking the test don’t matter.

There’s no shortage of explanations for the poor results, but British enemies of school reform have latched on to one of them: the free schools reform of the early 1990s, which they claim sent the system into chaos.

You’ll notice how the naysayers never give any evidence to back up their claims. …

Why, then, are Swedish schools struggling? There are many hypotheses floating around, some more plausible than others. Yet there has been no hard evidence for any of them. Until now.

On the other hand, there are often ways to perform all-else-being-equal analyses on PISA scores. For example, I’ve long pointed out that although America’s PISA scores are notoriously mediocre overall, on a race-by-race basis they’re closer to Not Bad.

Similarly, the PISA tests break out the scores of first and second generation immigrants, allowing the following type of quite legitimate analysis to be done:

Two weeks ago, I published a paper [in Swedish] at the Research Institute of Industrial Economics and an op-ed in the largest Swedish daily about the impact of immigration on Sweden’s Pisa scores. Quite a row followed. Why? Well, it turns out that the change in pupil demographics due to immigration explains almost a third of the average decline between 2000 and 2012: 19 per cent in mathematical literacy, 28 per cent in reading literacy, and 41 per cent in scientific literacy. The effect is especially pronounced in recent years, coinciding with accelerating refugee immigration. Indeed, between 2009 and 2012, 43 per cent of the average Pisa score decline is explained by altered demographics: a full 29 per cent in mathematical literacy, 45 per cent in reading literacy, and 62 per cent in scientific literacy.

In the paper, I also calculate that 11 per cent of the overall decline can be attributed directly to the decreasing share of pupils with a Swedish background, while 18 per cent can be attributed to the fact that results among pupils with an immigrant background have fallen more significantly. The latter is clearly displayed by the next graph. While scores among pupils with a Swedish background have declined by 22 points between 2000 and 2012, scores among pupils with an immigrant background have fallen by 39 points – and the performance gap between the two groups has grown from 36 points to 53 points.

These are strong effects. In fact, the change in pupil demographics is the only factor that we know for sure has contributed to Sweden’s falling scores. Furthermore, the full impact is probably somewhat larger. This is because immigration may also have lowered performance among pupils with a Swedish background, for instance through the redistribution of resources to immigrant pupils. While this is a more difficult subject to study, the most relevant paper suggests modest negative effects in this respect. It’s therefore probable that the total impact of changed pupil composition is higher than reported here.

Even with this effect included, immigration is nevertheless unlikely to be the only reason behind Sweden’s falling educational performance. While the left’s arguments have been debunked, there are more plausible explanations, explored elsewhere by myself and my colleague Dr Tino Sanandaji. In short: the rise of an overly progressive educational culture is likely to be an important culprit. Incidentally, as my recent monograph shows, this is also relevant for understanding declining Pisa scores in Finland, the longstanding pin-up model of school choice and accountability critics.

    Why is it that the smartest nations have the dumbest immigration policies?

    Maybe dumb people are ‘smarter’ in some ways. As they aren’t good with abstract ideas, they tend to focus on elemental ‘shit’. It’s like Negroes see everything in terms of what they be eating, having, funning with, and having sex with, and etc. Negroes not be smart or sensible, but they like things to be simple and easily understood. It’s like even black ‘intellectual’ Coates be thinking, “Sheeeeiiiit, what you gonna gimme for my body? I be hungry, mofo!!!”

    It’s like Kurosawa’s KAGEMUSHA. The shadow warrior fools everyone, even smart folks and enemy lords… but he doesn’t fool the horse. Horse isn’t fooled by ideas and images. It just goes by instinct.

    It seems like smart white folks be into ideas, concepts, and all sorts of abstract stuff. So, they are fooled by stuff like ‘equality’, ‘diversity’, ‘progress’, and such highfalutin ideas.

    Black folks just thinking elemental, like “Blacks Lives Matter, so gimme free stuff, mofo!!!”

    But white folks be thinking in abstract terms like ‘white privilege’, ‘trigger warning’, and ‘historical sin’, and etc. White folks be thinking with their brains whereas Negroes be feeling everything with their butts. Negroes be stupid and don’t rise high, but they sure think in elemental terms of tribalism and spear-chuckery.

    So paradoxically, smartness can be dumber than dumbness. Smartness can be fooled by ideas whereas dumbness, though unable to grasp high ideas, is focused on elemental stuff.

    In the same vein, their nationalist party (Sweden Democrats) was still vaguely attached to Nazism until the turn of the 21st century. International media loves repeating this, but it doesn't seem to bother the 20-23% of Sweden that is currently polled backing them.

We need someone to shift the Overton window on the whole trans/gay the way Trump has with immigration. Lots of people saying "Trump is clown . . . but he does have a point". We need the same pushback against Trans men in womens bathrooms, aggressive homo propaganda in public schools (Dan Savage teaching kids about fisting for example), etc. I can only see a women celebrity pulling this off.

    Well in the U.S. during the 50-60's and early 70's there used to be broadcast standards for radio and TV and pressure groups like the Catholic League that did a pretty good job at keeping c**p off airwaves. I think it used to be called the golden age of TV.

    Of course that doesn't jibe with today's secular/progressive/modern societal notions that embraces every toxic, imbecilic and nihilistic expression out there. And the proponents of this toxic stew don't tell you that it's poisonous to society, especially when you expose young children to it and worse when they see the promoters of the filth exalted as artistic geniuses by the elite.

    If you want to see long term exposure look at Norway(whose principal export seems to be black metal rock)Sweden, and that stronghold of apex WASPs - England. They're all rotting. Doesn't matter if they have high IQ's when their cultures promotes nihilism, vapidity and indolence. They deserve to die.

    Censorship? What do we need censorship for? These are kids. They have parents. That's one of the things parents are for.

    If their parents won't exert influence over what they allow their children to see and hear, it's certainly not society's job to do so. We had various speech codes before, and they were terrible. We're currently instituting speech codes based on 'political correctness' - it's one of the reasons Mr. Sailer's various sites tend to be categorized as 'hate speech'.

    Keep your compromises to yourself.

    It actually looks like the much despised and reviled Sweden Democrats will be the largest party in the next election, which is pretty amazing. They were less than one percentage point behind the leading party in the last major poll. Unfortunately what is happening is that all the other parties are banding together into essentially a single party based solely on the religion of mass third-world immigration. Total insanity.

    I call BS on social democrats being vaguely attached to Nazism. Before WWII most of the upper classes were very much pro-Germany but it was German culture and the Germany of old they supported.

    The social democrats were clearly anti-Nazi but of course some of the left wing geniuses want to distort the facts on why Sweden stayed out of the war and some of the Social democrat policies.

    Staying out of the war: anyone who seriously thinks Sweden should have behaved differently considering Germany had just defeated France, UK, and most of the rest of Europe is delusional. The neutral attitude shifted somewhat when tide turned on the continent. There was some bitterness from our neighbours but it's entirely uncalled for. They would have done the same but weren't so lucky.

    Sweden sterilized and lobotomized white trash up until the 70's. This is because the welfare state needs everyone to contribute according to their ability. Only a few thousand people suffered this treatment though. This had nothing to do with Nazism.

    There are still plenty of good Pakeha players like Ritchie McCaw and Dan Carter. The browning of the All Blacks really just reflects the browning of NZ. Many of the Maori players are only minimally Maori, but as it's cooler to be Maori than white, they emphasize their 1/16th Maori heritage. The biggest source of immigrants is the Pacific Islands. They are usually poor and rugby is an area is which they can excel, especially as they are often physically huge.

    My kids go to a Swedish primary school that is 95% Swedish, 99% white. In previous school in the antipodes(with tiger mums ever-present) parents were kept on toes trying keep up with all the homework. Swedish school finishes at 130pm and seems more like half-day day-care. No marks are given. You have a nice child, with lots of energy and their Swedish is improving.

    Ethnic Swedes do quite fine in the world. All these foreigners(ahem) must handicap ethnic Swedes at some stage. Long live the Crazy Cat Lady.
    , @M.A
    Because the PI birthrate is far higher than the European and because of immigration into New Zealand. I'm sick to death of listening to recently naturalized "All Blacks" spouting about how proud they are about "pulling on the jersey". The best All blacks are still white: Reid, McCaw, Smith. And don't claim McCaw as a Maori, he has about as much blood as I do which is zero.

    You're wonderful South Seas XIV would not have won the last World Cup Final, even at home, and against an appalling French team, but for the most blatantly home town referee in sporting history.

    I'm with you. I'd been drifting away from enjoying big-time professional and college sports - particularly football and basketball - for awhile for a variety of reasons (not having too many players that looked like me was certainly one of them), but, ironically, it was something that I read here on iSteve that put the nail in the coffin. Somebody noted that the slavish devotion that so many men show to professional (and college) athletes was frankly gay.

    (Baseball seemed a bit of exception as many of its fans are more stat guys who love the strategy.)

    Listen to sports radio hosts and their callers some time, and you will see what I'm talking about. They really do display a serious undercurrent of homosexuality. I'm in no way claiming that these sports fans are closet gays, just that their worshipping of certain athletes is a little weird for grown men.
    , @JohnnyWalker123
    I partially agree.

    I think that it's ridiculous that grown men take interest in children's games. I know so many adult men who are obsessed with a bunch of guys who get paid to throw around a ball. Some of my coworkers spend their lunch break looking up the stats of high school players who are looking to commit university sports programs. It's just bizarre. Most men at my workplace (most of whom are college-educate) don't even understand the basics of America's immigration or trade policies, but they can offer a thorough discussion of the West Coast offense.

    I think that a lot of American men lack masculinity in their own lives, so they live vicariously through athletes. If they're younger, they also live vicariously through entertainers and celebrities. Americans have always been sports oriented, but these days sports enthusiasm is just so over the top.

    On the other hand, I personally watch a lot of football. So maybe I'm no better........

    There was an interesting movie that was inspired by culture of obsessive American male sports fans.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzQKeqMogh8

    A bunch of middle-age overweight white guys fawn over some muscular 20-something black guy because he can catch a ball. At the same time, they remain generally apathetic about the economic and culture degeneration of their country. It's really strange when you think about it.

    How well do Pakeha kids do at rugby these days? I've heard that the Maori/PI guys are taking over.

    There are still plenty of good Pakeha players like Ritchie McCaw and Dan Carter. The browning of the All Blacks really just reflects the browning of NZ. Many of the Maori players are only minimally Maori, but as it’s cooler to be Maori than white, they emphasize their 1/16th Maori heritage. The biggest source of immigrants is the Pacific Islands. They are usually poor and rugby is an area is which they can excel, especially as they are often physically huge.

    Otago Province which is overwhelmingly Pakeha (European) does best at school. Here being PI or Maori is “cool”. Pakeha children are much more susceptible to peer pressure to be cool than Asian kids and it helps foster a couldn’t-care-less attitude in diverse schools. Maori kids speak US ghetto. The trend is spreading.

     

    Not to be to much of a school marm, but this is why censorship of truly trashy stuff is a good thing. Kids should not be hearing nasty gangsta rap. It really is degrading. I know, I know, I love free speech, too. But at some point there has to be some compromise of ideals with reality.

    Well in the U.S. during the 50-60′s and early 70′s there used to be broadcast standards for radio and TV and pressure groups like the Catholic League that did a pretty good job at keeping c**p off airwaves. I think it used to be called the golden age of TV.

    Of course that doesn’t jibe with today’s secular/progressive/modern societal notions that embraces every toxic, imbecilic and nihilistic expression out there. And the proponents of this toxic stew don’t tell you that it’s poisonous to society, especially when you expose young children to it and worse when they see the promoters of the filth exalted as artistic geniuses by the elite.

    If you want to see long term exposure look at Norway(whose principal export seems to be black metal rock)Sweden, and that stronghold of apex WASPs – England. They’re all rotting. Doesn’t matter if they have high IQ’s when their cultures promotes nihilism, vapidity and indolence. They deserve to die.

    10 percent of the population of Des Moines is Black,which makes Des Moines Blacker than Portland, Phoenix, Albuquerque, San Diego, Seattle, and San Francisco.

    10 percent is a big enough Negro population for your adopted half Black cousin to easily culturally assimilate into Ebonics culture.

    Many people living outside of Iowa have the misconception that the Black population in Des Moines is extremely minuscule, as in Billings, Montana and Provo, Utah level of minuscule.

    My kids go to a Swedish primary school that is 95% Swedish, 99% white. In previous school in the antipodes(with tiger mums ever-present) parents were kept on toes trying keep up with all the homework. Swedish school finishes at 130pm and seems more like half-day day-care. No marks are given. You have a nice child, with lots of energy and their Swedish is improving.

    This reminds of when Sweden had a catalog promoting boys playing with toys that are meant for girls. America is adopting Sweden's political correctness but not Sweden's racial demographics. Typical of America for wanting to adopt Sweden's weaknesses but not their strengths.

    "Sweden is busy adopting America’s demographics except the Hispanics. MENA is a good substitute."

    Sweden is adopting American psychographics and adopting African demographics to make it seem more like America.

    As America dominates culturally and intellectually all over the world, American ideas and images penetrate into every nation. To be sure, the elites who run America are globalist Jews working with their counterparts in the EU.

    America doesn't send its blacks to Sweden, but American culture is exported worldwide. So, American psychographics dominates the EU.

    Because of America's troubled history of race relations, the proper psychographics that the US should be exporting around the world is "blacks are dangerous, blacks are trouble, blacks are threatening, blacks commit lots of crime, blacks mess things up, blacks are a huge headache, blacks are a huge financial drain, and etc."
    Instead, Hollywood and US media spread the notion of the holy Negro, nice Negro, noble Negro, and etc. And even when Negroes are not so nice, they are the Kool Negro of rap and sports culture.

    And the EU just sucks all this up. As Europe was without a black crime problem for a long long time and as most whites lived in safe communities, their only view of blacks was a noble victims of 'racism' or cool stars of sports and funky music. And even when Europeans saw black athletes like Ali whup white folks, they patronizingly saw it as 'black justice' against history of 'white racism', also the theme of UNFORGIVABLE BLACKNESS.

    If US media had been controlled by HBD forces, then the truth would have gotten out in so many words and images that BLACKS ARE BIG TROUBLE DUE TO BIOLOGICAL FACTORS.
    So, if you have blacks in your country, keep them under control and try not to increase their population. If you don't have blacks, do NOT import them from Africa. Consider it a blessing that your nation is black-free. Don't think of it as a national deficiency that you don't have basketball stars and rapper shits.

    Instead, US media and culture either presented blacks are cool stars of sports/music or poor helpless victims of 'racism' who need the compassion of goody good wiberals.

    EU feels both inferior to the US for having fewer colorful blacks and feels superior to the US for being more 'anti-racist' --- unlike all those gun-wielding white American 'racists' who gun down black babies and gentle giants.
    So, to the people of EU, allowing massive black African immigration is like killing two birds with one stone. They get Cool diversity and they get to show Americans the PROPER and DECENT way to treat the Negroes. Unlike Americans who brought them over as slaves and discriminated against them, Europe will welcome and embrace blacks as free immigrants and shower them with love and care.
    EU savors this kind of 'therapy' because it felt so morally inferior to the US during 20th century when it tore itself apart and relied on US in both World Wars to come to the rescue. US also protected Western Europe from Communist Russia. It doesn't feel good for Europeans to feel morally inferior to a crass, materialist, young, upstart nation. How nice for Europeans to feel morally superior to Americans at least in their handling of blacks. When it comes to Jews, Europeans killed them while Americans saved them. But when it comes to blacks, Europeans can feel morally superior since their blacks weren't brought as slaves and didn't suffer JimCrow.

    Also, even though Europeans know they have a great cultural legacy, they see it as dead museum culture, moribund and lacking in populist vitality. They see the vitality is pop culture American style, and since Negroes are big in the music scene --- it appears reggae is the favorite genre of rich whites all over the world --- , Europeans feel their culture is at a dead end unless it has a Negro to provide the juice. It's like what the negro offered the nuns in LILIES OF THE FIELD and what Whoopie offered to the nuns in some dumbass movie.

    Anyway, it's all about the control of media and academia. If media and academia were in the hands of people who know the truth and sounded the alarm all around the world, EU would not be taking in tons of Negroes. They would learn that Negroes are the #1 problem in the US.
    I dare say 80% of all the real long-term problems in the US has to do with Negroes. If we HBD people had control of the media, we would have sounded the alarm long ago, and all borders would have been closed. But what kind of people control the media in the US? NYT and Hollywood. And people like Spielberg and Tarantino make stuff like LINCOLN and DJANGO UNCHAINED(that flatters a German-European for siding with a Negro against American whites). And I'm sure all Swedish kids have been exposed to 1200 Reich a Slave.

    EU doesn't know the truth, just like whites in predominantly northern states in the US don't know; the small numbers of blacks in their communities tend to be better behaved. As for lousy black behavior elsewhere, it gets drowned out by public education and mass media and pop culture that suppress black crime while promoting black nobility. If you live in a nice quiet town in Minnesota and rely on national media, you don't know the crap that is happening in blackening America. And as big cities become more gentrified, the haute urban Libs will know less too. In the 70s and 80s, even urban Libs couldn't miss the reality, which is why Ed Koch sometimes got aggressive about blacks and why so many NYers sided with Bernie Goetz.

    I saw an episode of ALIAS, and it was non-stop promotion of the Noble Negro dude. That sort of thing got so pervasive that Americans elected Cosby as 'America's dad'. Well, look at the real Cosby now. And Americans elevated Oprah into some holy godmother. And Obama was made president and even given a Nobel for having done nothing.

    Sweden and EU emulate the US because US has been spreading so many lies about itself.
    Most Europeans don't seek the truth, and it's more difficult to find the truth over there cuz of greater censorship on speech. So, your average Swede is likely to know Negroes from GREEN MILE and Hip Hop culture(that does feature black thugs but in a glamorized manner that seems more exciting than threatening) than from any news source that speaks the truth.

    It's gonna end like the final scene in ZARDOZ. Tragic beyond belief.
    Greatest civilization ever created going down cuz Europeans worship 'America's dad' and the mountain-sized Negro who loves a little white mouse. And the myth that Trayvon and Brown were helpless victims of 'racists'.

    EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION MATTERS.

    But Europeans themselves seem to disagree.

    It actually looks like the much despised and reviled Sweden Democrats will be the largest party in the next election, which is pretty amazing. They were less than one percentage point behind the leading party in the last major poll. Unfortunately what is happening is that all the other parties are banding together into essentially a single party based solely on the religion of mass third-world immigration. Total insanity.

  32. I went to Niagara Falls today. We were the rare White Americans there. I am not kidding. I have no idea who these people were, if they were immigrants or foreign tourists.

    I could see across to the river to the Canadian side. We were on The Maid of the Mist boat that goes past American Falls and up almost to Horseshoe falls. On the way back it came close to the equivalent dock where the Canadian version, The Hornblower, was loading. The people there all had on those hooded plastic ponchos they hand out so I couldn’t see the people perfectly in order to tell if they were white or what. But once we got the same distance to the American dock, it was obvious those people were not white. So by comparison I assume the Canadian boat was mostly loading whites.

    This is my third little trip out from the white town I now live in. This trip was amazing in the contrast. There is no “diversity” in these brown people. The only variation in faces was in the occasional white. Anyone that is young today is just getting the shaft compared to the way people looked when I was a kid. I just wonder how in hell are these genes going to all mix together and create a people that is even a fraction of what I experienced growing up. When I was a kid there were handsome families everywhere. Now, they are so rare, you really notice them. You should have seen California in 1975. Or even Texas. When I was going to college at the Univ of Texas in 1980, I really thought I was in heaven, the best school in the best state in the best country (A little Texas chauvinism there). There were gorgeous people everywhere. Now they are few and far between.

    You are already screwed. This gene pool is blown out of the water. All that any 2016 victory with the most staunch anti-immigration candidate can do is slow the browning.

    I call BS on social democrats being vaguely attached to Nazism. Before WWII most of the upper classes were very much pro-Germany but it was German culture and the Germany of old they supported.

    The social democrats were clearly anti-Nazi but of course some of the left wing geniuses want to distort the facts on why Sweden stayed out of the war and some of the Social democrat policies.

    Staying out of the war: anyone who seriously thinks Sweden should have behaved differently considering Germany had just defeated France, UK, and most of the rest of Europe is delusional. The neutral attitude shifted somewhat when tide turned on the continent. There was some bitterness from our neighbours but it’s entirely uncalled for. They would have done the same but weren’t so lucky.

    Sweden sterilized and lobotomized white trash up until the 70′s. This is because the welfare state needs everyone to contribute according to their ability. Only a few thousand people suffered this treatment though. This had nothing to do with Nazism.

  37. I lived for years is Sweden. First off, irrespective of immigration, Swedes are very lax in disciplining their children. It has long been illegal to strike a kid there and kids usually run wild and do things that would never be accepted in the States. The education system has long been oriented towards bringing the lowest performers up – intelligent kids were an embarrassment and instead of encouraged to move ahead, they were held back and used to help bring up the slacker students. In fact Sweden was all about mediocrity, I’m a working class advocate myself but I have to admit back then, thirty years ago, the working class had way too much power there and seriously kept the weak bourgeoisie in check.

    But with the onslaught of mass 3rd world immigration, the Swedish authorities had to allow “free” or charter schools so that indigenous Swedish parents could find “good” schools that were free of the immigrant taint. Otherwise the Swedish people would not have accepted mass immigration. So for the most part poor immigrants are stuck in immigrant areas and go to schools mostly with other immigrants. Swedish kids generally get to be educated with their own kind.

    So a whole bunch of privatized “free” schools have opened in Sweden. But the “free” schools are seriously lax and exaggerate the Swedish tendency to pamper their children. No grades are given and no studying is expected. Often they are even more lax than public schools. They practically give the kids answers to tests to keep their test scores up. There are only a very few elite schools where standards are high.

    I know one parent who was telling me his kid had a test to study for but the kid refused and instead played computer games (father’s a total wus). There were some study questions and the kid could not answer anything. The parent decided to let the kid fail to make an example (also it was the easy way out to avoid confronting his kid). Anyway the kid came home the next day with a super high score and said that the teachers had in one way or another, given the kids the answers. This kid absolutely never studies after school which shocks his Swedish father, himself a product of a relatively lax system, although the shock is not enough to encourage the father to confront his child and do anything about it. Politically the father is a radical, Ayn Rand loving libertarian who hates the state and socialism but loves immigration.

    So immigration is not only directly to blame for the low scores, but also indirectly, through the “free” schools, it has allowed existing weaknesses to metastasize further throughout the system.

    When I talk to other Westerners living in Sweden, it is the one thing everyone agrees on: the Swedish education system is total crap. But somehow they have managed to be a successful country up until now. But combining the native weakness of the education system with the overwhelming negative impacts of mass 3rd world immigration, the future is anything but bright for Sweden. Seriously, they will be the first EU nation to fall to Islamist rule.

    You are absolutely right in your description of the Swedish school system and how the majority of Swedes are brought up. What this has done, however, is to create a generation of computer experts and IT entrepreneurs . If you were bright you had to find something to do since you didn't really have school work. People born mid 60's to mid 80's are very creative and have managed very well despite the schools. After them it's chaos and partly due to the good students fleeing the public schools and the good students ending up in "free" schools based on free Ipads and such.

    Sweden is busy adopting America's demographics except the Hispanics. MENA is a good substitute.

    “Sweden is busy adopting America’s demographics except the Hispanics. MENA is a good substitute.”

    Sweden is adopting American psychographics and adopting African demographics to make it seem more like America.

    As America dominates culturally and intellectually all over the world, American ideas and images penetrate into every nation. To be sure, the elites who run America are globalist Jews working with their counterparts in the EU.

    America doesn’t send its blacks to Sweden, but American culture is exported worldwide. So, American psychographics dominates the EU.

    Because of America’s troubled history of race relations, the proper psychographics that the US should be exporting around the world is “blacks are dangerous, blacks are trouble, blacks are threatening, blacks commit lots of crime, blacks mess things up, blacks are a huge headache, blacks are a huge financial drain, and etc.”
    Instead, Hollywood and US media spread the notion of the holy Negro, nice Negro, noble Negro, and etc. And even when Negroes are not so nice, they are the Kool Negro of rap and sports culture.

    And the EU just sucks all this up. As Europe was without a black crime problem for a long long time and as most whites lived in safe communities, their only view of blacks was a noble victims of ‘racism’ or cool stars of sports and funky music. And even when Europeans saw black athletes like Ali whup white folks, they patronizingly saw it as ‘black justice’ against history of ‘white racism’, also the theme of UNFORGIVABLE BLACKNESS.

    If US media had been controlled by HBD forces, then the truth would have gotten out in so many words and images that BLACKS ARE BIG TROUBLE DUE TO BIOLOGICAL FACTORS.
    So, if you have blacks in your country, keep them under control and try not to increase their population. If you don’t have blacks, do NOT import them from Africa. Consider it a blessing that your nation is black-free. Don’t think of it as a national deficiency that you don’t have basketball stars and rapper shits.

    Instead, US media and culture either presented blacks are cool stars of sports/music or poor helpless victims of ‘racism’ who need the compassion of goody good wiberals.

    EU feels both inferior to the US for having fewer colorful blacks and feels superior to the US for being more ‘anti-racist’ — unlike all those gun-wielding white American ‘racists’ who gun down black babies and gentle giants.
    So, to the people of EU, allowing massive black African immigration is like killing two birds with one stone. They get Cool diversity and they get to show Americans the PROPER and DECENT way to treat the Negroes. Unlike Americans who brought them over as slaves and discriminated against them, Europe will welcome and embrace blacks as free immigrants and shower them with love and care.
    EU savors this kind of ‘therapy’ because it felt so morally inferior to the US during 20th century when it tore itself apart and relied on US in both World Wars to come to the rescue. US also protected Western Europe from Communist Russia. It doesn’t feel good for Europeans to feel morally inferior to a crass, materialist, young, upstart nation. How nice for Europeans to feel morally superior to Americans at least in their handling of blacks. When it comes to Jews, Europeans killed them while Americans saved them. But when it comes to blacks, Europeans can feel morally superior since their blacks weren’t brought as slaves and didn’t suffer JimCrow.

    Also, even though Europeans know they have a great cultural legacy, they see it as dead museum culture, moribund and lacking in populist vitality. They see the vitality is pop culture American style, and since Negroes are big in the music scene — it appears reggae is the favorite genre of rich whites all over the world — , Europeans feel their culture is at a dead end unless it has a Negro to provide the juice. It’s like what the negro offered the nuns in LILIES OF THE FIELD and what Whoopie offered to the nuns in some dumbass movie.

    Anyway, it’s all about the control of media and academia. If media and academia were in the hands of people who know the truth and sounded the alarm all around the world, EU would not be taking in tons of Negroes. They would learn that Negroes are the #1 problem in the US.
    I dare say 80% of all the real long-term problems in the US has to do with Negroes. If we HBD people had control of the media, we would have sounded the alarm long ago, and all borders would have been closed. But what kind of people control the media in the US? NYT and Hollywood. And people like Spielberg and Tarantino make stuff like LINCOLN and DJANGO UNCHAINED(that flatters a German-European for siding with a Negro against American whites). And I’m sure all Swedish kids have been exposed to 1200 Reich a Slave.

    EU doesn’t know the truth, just like whites in predominantly northern states in the US don’t know; the small numbers of blacks in their communities tend to be better behaved. As for lousy black behavior elsewhere, it gets drowned out by public education and mass media and pop culture that suppress black crime while promoting black nobility. If you live in a nice quiet town in Minnesota and rely on national media, you don’t know the crap that is happening in blackening America. And as big cities become more gentrified, the haute urban Libs will know less too. In the 70s and 80s, even urban Libs couldn’t miss the reality, which is why Ed Koch sometimes got aggressive about blacks and why so many NYers sided with Bernie Goetz.

    I saw an episode of ALIAS, and it was non-stop promotion of the Noble Negro dude. That sort of thing got so pervasive that Americans elected Cosby as ‘America’s dad’. Well, look at the real Cosby now. And Americans elevated Oprah into some holy godmother. And Obama was made president and even given a Nobel for having done nothing.

    Sweden and EU emulate the US because US has been spreading so many lies about itself.
    Most Europeans don’t seek the truth, and it’s more difficult to find the truth over there cuz of greater censorship on speech. So, your average Swede is likely to know Negroes from GREEN MILE and Hip Hop culture(that does feature black thugs but in a glamorized manner that seems more exciting than threatening) than from any news source that speaks the truth.

    It’s gonna end like the final scene in ZARDOZ. Tragic beyond belief.
    Greatest civilization ever created going down cuz Europeans worship ‘America’s dad’ and the mountain-sized Negro who loves a little white mouse. And the myth that Trayvon and Brown were helpless victims of ‘racists’.

    EUROPEAN CIVILIZATION MATTERS.

    But Europeans themselves seem to disagree.

    Sweden was neutral in WWII, as a consequence, the prewar political alignments were preserved, and their society doesn't fear totalitarian rule as much as its neighbors.

    In the same vein, their nationalist party (Sweden Democrats) was still vaguely attached to Nazism until the turn of the 21st century. International media loves repeating this, but it doesn't seem to bother the 20-23% of Sweden that is currently polled backing them. I can't imagine that any of the other parties will offer cooperation in the next election, but that will only make SD more popular.

The neutral attitude shifted somewhat when tide turned on the continent. There was some bitterness from our neighbours but it's entirely uncalled for. They would have done the same but weren't so lucky.

    Sweden sterilized and lobotomized white trash up until the 70's. This is because the welfare state needs everyone to contribute according to their ability. Only a few thousand people suffered this treatment though. This had nothing to do with Nazism.

    The Sweden Democrats are an interesting case. The current leadership obviously joined a almost neo-Nazi party but has successfully steered them away from that and in the meantime removed skinheads, people who can't keep their racist opinions to themselves and others deemed surplus to requirements. The party today is much more mainstream but there is still a core of opinions where they don't compromise.

    Disney's Frozen dolls for example will no longer be advertised as being for girls and manly toys like action figures will no longer be advertised as being for boys.

    This reminds of when Sweden had a catalog promoting boys playing with toys that are meant for girls. America is adopting Sweden's political correctness but not Sweden's racial demographics. Typical of America for wanting to adopt Sweden's weaknesses but not their strengths.

    Most of the elites in this country want Sweden's political correctness combined with Mexico's racial demographics.

    Consumers (kids and their parents) are not actually so dumb that they need a big sign saying “These are the dolls for GIRLS” to figure out who the target market for dolls are.

    Well, you are seeing a selection bias - if you're in university, especially a foreign one, there must be something going on in the head and you probably are not representative of the population.

    But, also, because a computer with bad or resource-hungry software is useless, no matter how good the components are. A high IQ people can be left in the dust by inappropriate culture and mores. People here have mentioned in the past how Jewish contribution to Math and Science sprang into being in the XIXth century, when religious scholarship lost its monopoly on their intellectuals, despite Jewish intellectual prowess being noted for much longer.

    Similarly, culture matters and even a low IQ population can achieve good results if it has a work ethic and is stewarded by a cognitive elite that is dedicated to its welfare.

    I.q. is tied to race. Today's modern "Arabs" (about 85%) have black ancestry because of Islamic polygamy and concubinage. North Africa originally had Caucasian peoples. The ancient Egyptians, Hannibal, St. Augustine are examples of these peoples. When Islam became entrenched in North Africa, this produced the miscegenation we see today (and the concomitant drop in iqs.). Only about 10-15% of North Africans today are Caucasians. The Kybyla of Algeria are an example. This whiteness is also prevalent among most of the North Africans who remained Christian and were segregated from their muslim neighbors. The only Christians who show sign of race-mixing are the Copts of Egypt.

    When people ask me why I'm not into professional sports, and the NFL in particular, I point to incidents like these.

    I’m with you. I’d been drifting away from enjoying big-time professional and college sports – particularly football and basketball – for awhile for a variety of reasons (not having too many players that looked like me was certainly one of them), but, ironically, it was something that I read here on iSteve that put the nail in the coffin. Somebody noted that the slavish devotion that so many men show to professional (and college) athletes was frankly gay.

    (Baseball seemed a bit of exception as many of its fans are more stat guys who love the strategy.)

    Listen to sports radio hosts and their callers some time, and you will see what I’m talking about. They really do display a serious undercurrent of homosexuality. I’m in no way claiming that these sports fans are closet gays, just that their worshipping of certain athletes is a little weird for grown men.

    Men idolizing stronger, more virile heroic men has a very long pedigree in Western and Islamic civilizations. It has nothing to do with being gay, it is more about beta males seeking alphas they can follow. I don't think male broadcasters and fans who go into raptures about Lebron James or Rob Gronkowski have any desire to have sex with those athletes, but they probably do wish at some level they could be in Lebron's or Gronk's posses and get to share the sexual benefits.

    Any thoughts on the Kate Breslin For Such A Time romance-novel hullabaloo:

    A romantic novel in which a “blonde and blue-eyed Jewess” falls in love with an SS-Kommandant in Theresienstadt concentration camp has caused outrage and offence in the romance writing community after it was shortlisted for two top awards.

    Kate Breslin’s For Such a Time is a riff on the Old Testament’s Book of Esther, in which the Jewish girl Hadassah, known as Esther, marries the Persian king Ahasuerus, and saves her people from a genocide. In Breslin’s version, Hadassah hides behind the identity of Stella Muller while working as a secretary for SS Kommandant Colonel Aric von Schmidt. She “finds herself battling a growing attraction for this man she knows she should despise as an enemy”, as she tries to save the camp’s prisoners. Eventually, she converts to Christianity.

    Women like bad boys.

    Who are badder bad boys than NAZIs? NAZIs don't really exist anymore, so they are great fictionalized monsters, like vampires.

    Nazis have been subjects of romance porn books and movies for women for a long time now. There were a wave of nazi romances in the 1970s.

    This book is only controversial because of the Christian conversion.

    Sweden? Will it be all African or Middke East Muslim, seems the only question. Swedes seem to hate themselves. They sure are abolishing themselves.

    Sure it’s not caca bowl?

    Can you imagine some Mexican politician running for office by peddling hamburger grills? Gringos are an actez of lovez.

    It could be Jeb really loves the Mexican people, but are Mexers really flattered by the sight of Jeb and wife? Huge tall towering gringo and short Mexer. It’s like McCarthur standing next to Hirohito the Tokyo Shoeshine Boy.
    Also, gringo male and Mexican female, as if Mexico is the ‘feminine other’.

    Jebs sees love, but Mexers might see sexual domination of big gringo.

    Whites say Jeb is a cuckservative, but it could be he makes Mexers feel like they are the ones being cucked by a big white man.

    I really do think, when I read stuff like this, that this country is hopeless. The real problem is not the David Simons but the fact that there is no one to oppose him in popular art. Sorry, Colin Quinn doesn't cut it.

    I think he's telling the truth when he says he didn't consult with Obama directly, but he did consult with Admin. officials. This confirms my suspicion that politicians ("elected officials") and the entertainment industry are working hand-in-glove. It's not just a case of like minds, which has been the case since at least Kennedy. It's actual collusion. I think Stewart/Obama should be investigated.

    @Shine a Light
    I lived for years is Sweden. First off, irrespective of immigration, Swedes are very lax in disciplining their children. It has long been illegal to strike a kid there and kids usually run wild and do things that would never be accepted in the States. The education system has long been oriented towards bringing the lowest performers up – intelligent kids were an embarrassment and instead of encouraged to move ahead, they were held back and used to help bring up the slacker students. In fact Sweden was all about mediocrity, I’m a working class advocate myself but I have to admit back then, thirty years ago, the working class had way too much power there and seriously kept the weak bourgeoisie in check.

    But with the onslaught of mass 3rd world immigration, the Swedish authorities had to allow “free” or charter schools so that indigenous Swedish parents could find “good” schools that were free of the immigrant taint. Otherwise the Swedish people would not have accepted mass immigration. So for the most part poor immigrants are stuck in immigrant areas and go to schools mostly with other immigrants. Swedish kids generally get to be educated with their own kind.

    So a whole bunch of privatized “free” schools have opened in Sweden. But the “free” schools are seriously lax and exaggerate the Swedish tendency to pamper their children. No grades are given and no studying is expected. Often they are even more lax than public schools. They practically give the kids answers to tests to keep their test scores up. There are only a very few elite schools where standards are high.

    I know one parent who was telling me his kid had a test to study for but the kid refused and instead played computer games (father's a total wus). There were some study questions and the kid could not answer anything. The parent decided to let the kid fail to make an example (also it was the easy way out to avoid confronting his kid). Anyway the kid came home the next day with a super high score and said that the teachers had in one way or another, given the kids the answers. This kid absolutely never studies after school which shocks his Swedish father, himself a product of a relatively lax system, although the shock is not enough to encourage the father to confront his child and do anything about it. Politically the father is a radical, Ayn Rand loving libertarian who hates the state and socialism but loves immigration.

    So immigration is not only directly to blame for the low scores, but also indirectly, through the “free” schools, it has allowed existing weaknesses to metastasize further throughout the system.

    When I talk to other Westerners living in Sweden, it is the one thing everyone agrees on: the Swedish education system is total crap. But somehow they have managed to be a successful country up until now. But combining the native weakness of the education system with the overwhelming negative impacts of mass 3rd world immigration, the future is anything but bright for Sweden. Seriously, they will be the first EU nation to fall to Islamist rule.

    You are absolutely right in your description of the Swedish school system and how the majority of Swedes are brought up. What this has done, however, is to create a generation of computer experts and IT entrepreneurs . If you were bright you had to find something to do since you didn’t really have school work. People born mid 60′s to mid 80′s are very creative and have managed very well despite the schools. After them it’s chaos and partly due to the good students fleeing the public schools and the good students ending up in “free” schools based on free Ipads and such.

    Sorry, I don’t know why I read Social Democrats. Possibly because I know some of the loony left accuse the Social Democrats of these things.

    The Sweden Democrats are an interesting case. The current leadership obviously joined a almost neo-Nazi party but has successfully steered them away from that and in the meantime removed skinheads, people who can’t keep their racist opinions to themselves and others deemed surplus to requirements. The party today is much more mainstream but there is still a core of opinions where they don’t compromise.

    Resurgence of topical diseases in the American South:

    This suggests that what Woc-Colburn sees in the clinic may be just the leading edge of a gathering crisis. Diseases once associated with “elsewhere” are increasingly being found in the southern states of the USA. Infectious disease physician Peter Hotez was so concerned that he founded a school of tropical medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, well within the territory that Hotez argues is one of the world’s 10 hotspots for so-called neglected tropical diseases.

    Tropical diseases have been affecting people in the American South as long as humans have been living there. In 2003, archaeologists discovered that mummified remains in the Rio Grande Valley from more than 1,000 years ago showed signs of Chagas disease. Transatlantic trade brought the mosquito Aedes aegypti over from Africa, and it thrived in the long, humid summers south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Human travelers brought pathogens that could be transmitted by imported and native mosquitoes. As a result, European settlers in North America were cut down by repeated epidemics of malaria, yellow fever and dengue.

    Drainage and sanitation projects in the 19th century eliminated many mosquito breeding grounds, but epidemics continued. The last yellow fever outbreak in the USA hit New Orleans in 1905, killing nearly 1,000 people. Malaria was even more difficult to eradicate, stubbornly remaining in pockets of the South into the 1940s and 1950s. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was founded in 1946 specifically to combat this problem, which is why their headquarters are in Atlanta: it was then the heart of malaria country.

    Once aggressive government-funded eradication programmes finally halted local malaria transmission, the optimism of the 1950s and early 1960s—combined with the advent of life-saving antibiotics and anti-parasitic drugs—made infectious diseases seem like ancient relics.

    Results from studies that tested donated blood for Chagas support the idea that it is a major problem in Texas. A 2014 study showed that one out of every 6,500 people who donated blood screened positive for Chagas—almost 50 times more than the CDC’s estimate that one in 300,000 Americans was infected. Although the results can’t prove where someone was infected, interviews by Baylor College of Medicine epidemiologist Melissa Nolan Garcia revealed that a substantial portion had no known risk factors for Chagas disease and had never spent an extended time in another area where Chagas was known to be present.

    However, it contains the usual true believers' statements:

    Although there’s no single cause for this, it has deep historical roots. The Civil War might have legally freed the slaves, but Jim Crow laws and centuries of prejudice meant that many black people remained in a state of abject poverty. Today, poverty is still a much bigger problem for black people than white people in the South.

    I don't know how we got on the subject of Geno, but:

    It appears that Enemkpali bought a plane ticket for Geno to attend his camp ($600). Geno wasn't able to attend, and didn't want to reimburse the expense. For either one of these guys, $600 was nothing; it was clearly a matter of principle. Enemkpali was clearly in the wrong, over and out.

    I am a little surprised that Geno has so little support on the team. Most of the Jets fans I know (I am a Bay Area transplant so I have no rooting interest) believe that losing Geno is actually good for the team, since he is so bad. As they put it, "Only on the Jets would losing your starting QB to a broken jaw be considered a positive."

    Otago Province which is overwhelmingly Pakeha (European) does best at school. Here being PI or Maori is “cool”. Pakeha children are much more susceptible to peer pressure to be cool than Asian kids and it helps foster a couldn’t-care-less attitude in diverse schools. Maori kids speak US ghetto. The trend is spreading.

     

    Not to be to much of a school marm, but this is why censorship of truly trashy stuff is a good thing. Kids should not be hearing nasty gangsta rap. It really is degrading. I know, I know, I love free speech, too. But at some point there has to be some compromise of ideals with reality.

    ---Why would anyone look at the US and its troubles and think, “oh yeah, we need to have *diversity* like that!”?---

    Because people see America's reality according to the power of the media.

    Look... when Stalin was starving millions in Ukraine, the Soviet media suppressed all that and instead provided images of happy farmers making great progress. And many in the West soaked it all up. Walter Duranty got a Pulitzer for reporting what he knew to be a lie.
    And when Mao was killing millions during the Great Leap Forward, the Chinese media made it seem as though China was happy and well-fed. Edgar Snow traveled to China in the late 5os and returned with a glowing portrait. Starvation? He said he didn't see any.
    And my professor of China history in college told me that when he was in college, all his professors and fellow students were leftists. They willfully swallowed Chinese commie lies. When reports came from Taiwan of mass starvation in the mainland, my professor told me his professors pooh-poohed it as 'right-wing propaganda'.

    Same goes for the US. What people in other nations know about the US comes from the media. It's like so many Russians thought Americans were worse off than they were cuz Soviet propaganda showed poor Americans being exploited by capitalists. It gets even more hilarious. China was many times poorer than Russia in the 1970s, but according to Anchee Min in COOKED SEED, she grew up thinking Americans were poorer than Chinese like her. ROTFL.

    So, people's sense of reality depends on who controls the media. Outside our immediate experience, EVERYTHING we know about the world comes through the media. We often forget that the media aren't the objective truth but selective truth as decided by a handful of elitists.

    US may be freer than most nations, but the mass media are controlled by a handful of people, and they belong to a certain tribe and of a certain ideology. The ideological indoctrination is so powerful and deviation from the dogma leads to such harsh punishment -- Helen Thomas, Rick Sanchez, Steve 'let the good times roll' Sailer -- that the media eventually ends up with dimwit dogmatists and cynical sociopaths.

    So, many Europeans don't get a true picture of the US. They get it from slanted news, slanted even more by even more PC news in Europe. And Hollywood movies are those that would have us believe that all the street thugs in the US are white. Europeans watching Law and Order will think US is overrun with white killers and crooks while noble blacks are doing their best help decent white folks from evil whites.

    Every year, so many innocent whites are raped or killed by blacks, but the world news is about how a 'gentle giant' was murdered by some 'racist white cop', even though the cop only acted in self-defense.

    We need a new paradigm and new media.
    Europeans don't see the real America but an America through the prism of PC.

    The power of media is immense. Look at western coverage of Sochi Olympics. So many lies. Look how Jay Leno got millions of suckers into believing Putin is new Hitler because russia won't allow homo parades. Look how Hussein went from 'moderate Arab leader' to 'new hitler or stalin'. Look how Iran's been vilified endlessly while Israel has been let off the hook for all its bad behavior, such as USS Liberty attack.
    Look how homos went from weirdos to the most wonderful angels. Biden said 85% of shift in US attitudes toward homos was determined by Jewish control of the media.
    Due to media manipulation, Americans think 25% of Americans are homo!

    There is information aligned with reality and there is misinformation at war with reality. And the US media are not about the truth. Jews and homos know that if the media dealt with the truth, their power would crumble. So, we go on and on about 'white privilege' even though Jews have most privilege. We go on and on about 'homophobia' even though 'phobia' has nothing to do with opposition to homo power that is more aggressive and censorious than McCarthyism.

    Why do you put "assault" in quotes? Breaking a guy's jaw couldn't be more of an assault.

    Your post is bizarre. Basically you're saying the Jet's QB got what he deserved because he supposedly owes a guy a small debt and he's a poor leader? This is ghetto logic at its finest.

    My prediction is that Enemkpali will be the next Lawrence Phillips from Nebraska. Maybe Rex Ryan getting stabbed or Matt Cassel getting shot will knock some sense into the NFL.

    I don’t know how we got on the subject of Geno, but:

    It appears that Enemkpali bought a plane ticket for Geno to attend his camp ($600). Geno wasn’t able to attend, and didn’t want to reimburse the expense. For either one of these guys, $600 was nothing; it was clearly a matter of principle. Enemkpali was clearly in the wrong, over and out.

    I am a little surprised that Geno has so little support on the team. Most of the Jets fans I know (I am a Bay Area transplant so I have no rooting interest) believe that losing Geno is actually good for the team, since he is so bad. As they put it, “Only on the Jets would losing your starting QB to a broken jaw be considered a positive.”

    Off-topic:

    Resurgence of topical diseases in the American South:

    This suggests that what Woc-Colburn sees in the clinic may be just the leading edge of a gathering crisis. Diseases once associated with “elsewhere” are increasingly being found in the southern states of the USA. Infectious disease physician Peter Hotez was so concerned that he founded a school of tropical medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, well within the territory that Hotez argues is one of the world’s 10 hotspots for so-called neglected tropical diseases.
     

    Tropical diseases have been affecting people in the American South as long as humans have been living there. In 2003, archaeologists discovered that mummified remains in the Rio Grande Valley from more than 1,000 years ago showed signs of Chagas disease. Transatlantic trade brought the mosquito Aedes aegypti over from Africa, and it thrived in the long, humid summers south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Human travelers brought pathogens that could be transmitted by imported and native mosquitoes. As a result, European settlers in North America were cut down by repeated epidemics of malaria, yellow fever and dengue.
     

    Drainage and sanitation projects in the 19th century eliminated many mosquito breeding grounds, but epidemics continued. The last yellow fever outbreak in the USA hit New Orleans in 1905, killing nearly 1,000 people. Malaria was even more difficult to eradicate, stubbornly remaining in pockets of the South into the 1940s and 1950s. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was founded in 1946 specifically to combat this problem, which is why their headquarters are in Atlanta: it was then the heart of malaria country.

    Once aggressive government-funded eradication programmes finally halted local malaria transmission, the optimism of the 1950s and early 1960s—combined with the advent of life-saving antibiotics and anti-parasitic drugs—made infectious diseases seem like ancient relics.
     

    Results from studies that tested donated blood for Chagas support the idea that it is a major problem in Texas. A 2014 study showed that one out of every 6,500 people who donated blood screened positive for Chagas—almost 50 times more than the CDC’s estimate that one in 300,000 Americans was infected. Although the results can’t prove where someone was infected, interviews by Baylor College of Medicine epidemiologist Melissa Nolan Garcia revealed that a substantial portion had no known risk factors for Chagas disease and had never spent an extended time in another area where Chagas was known to be present.

    However, it contains the usual true believers’ statements:

    Although there’s no single cause for this, it has deep historical roots. The Civil War might have legally freed the slaves, but Jim Crow laws and centuries of prejudice meant that many black people remained in a state of abject poverty. Today, poverty is still a much bigger problem for black people than white people in the South.

    When people ask me why I'm not into professional sports, and the NFL in particular, I point to incidents like these.

    I partially agree.

    I think that it’s ridiculous that grown men take interest in children’s games. I know so many adult men who are obsessed with a bunch of guys who get paid to throw around a ball. Some of my coworkers spend their lunch break looking up the stats of high school players who are looking to commit university sports programs. It’s just bizarre. Most men at my workplace (most of whom are college-educate) don’t even understand the basics of America’s immigration or trade policies, but they can offer a thorough discussion of the West Coast offense.

    I think that a lot of American men lack masculinity in their own lives, so they live vicariously through athletes. If they’re younger, they also live vicariously through entertainers and celebrities. Americans have always been sports oriented, but these days sports enthusiasm is just so over the top.

    On the other hand, I personally watch a lot of football. So maybe I’m no better……..

    There was an interesting movie that was inspired by culture of obsessive American male sports fans.

    A bunch of middle-age overweight white guys fawn over some muscular 20-something black guy because he can catch a ball. At the same time, they remain generally apathetic about the economic and culture degeneration of their country. It’s really strange when you think about it.

    I'm with you. I'd been drifting away from enjoying big-time professional and college sports - particularly football and basketball - for awhile for a variety of reasons (not having too many players that looked like me was certainly one of them), but, ironically, it was something that I read here on iSteve that put the nail in the coffin. Somebody noted that the slavish devotion that so many men show to professional (and college) athletes was frankly gay.

    (Baseball seemed a bit of exception as many of its fans are more stat guys who love the strategy.)

    Listen to sports radio hosts and their callers some time, and you will see what I'm talking about. They really do display a serious undercurrent of homosexuality. I'm in no way claiming that these sports fans are closet gays, just that their worshipping of certain athletes is a little weird for grown men.

    I’m in no way claiming that these sports fans are closet gays, just that their worshipping of certain athletes is a little weird for grown men.

    Men idolizing stronger, more virile heroic men has a very long pedigree in Western and Islamic civilizations. It has nothing to do with being gay, it is more about beta males seeking alphas they can follow. I don’t think male broadcasters and fans who go into raptures about Lebron James or Rob Gronkowski have any desire to have sex with those athletes, but they probably do wish at some level they could be in Lebron’s or Gronk’s posses and get to share the sexual benefits.

    Otago Province which is overwhelmingly Pakeha (European) does best at school. Here being PI or Maori is “cool”. Pakeha children are much more susceptible to peer pressure to be cool than Asian kids and it helps foster a couldn’t-care-less attitude in diverse schools. Maori kids speak US ghetto. The trend is spreading.

     

    Not to be to much of a school marm, but this is why censorship of truly trashy stuff is a good thing. Kids should not be hearing nasty gangsta rap. It really is degrading. I know, I know, I love free speech, too. But at some point there has to be some compromise of ideals with reality.

    Censorship? What do we need censorship for? These are kids. They have parents. That’s one of the things parents are for.

    If their parents won’t exert influence over what they allow their children to see and hear, it’s certainly not society’s job to do so. We had various speech codes before, and they were terrible. We’re currently instituting speech codes based on ‘political correctness’ – it’s one of the reasons Mr. Sailer’s various sites tend to be categorized as ‘hate speech’.

    Keep your compromises to yourself.

    It's not censorship--it's discipline about behavior and conduct. School environments result in the social and cultural cues that children acquire--hence their conduct and behavior. Peer pressure--going along to get along--has far more influence than teachers or parents. As society operates the schools, it makes it society's job to set the terms of disciple and structure, i.e. boundaries and rules regarding what is acceptable, and what is expected.

    Any thoughts on the Kate Breslin For Such A Time romance-novel hullabaloo:

    A romantic novel in which a “blonde and blue-eyed Jewess” falls in love with an SS-Kommandant in Theresienstadt concentration camp has caused outrage and offence in the romance writing community after it was shortlisted for two top awards.

    Kate Breslin’s For Such a Time is a riff on the Old Testament’s Book of Esther, in which the Jewish girl Hadassah, known as Esther, marries the Persian king Ahasuerus, and saves her people from a genocide. In Breslin’s version, Hadassah hides behind the identity of Stella Muller while working as a secretary for SS Kommandant Colonel Aric von Schmidt. She “finds herself battling a growing attraction for this man she knows she should despise as an enemy”, as she tries to save the camp’s prisoners. Eventually, she converts to Christianity.

    There are blacks everywhere these days. Wouldn’t surprise me if Stockholm is over 5% black.
     
    Geez. Why would anyone do that to themselves?

    Why would anyone look at the US and its troubles and think, "oh yeah, we need to have *diversity* like that!"?

    Cue Enoch Powell.

    —Why would anyone look at the US and its troubles and think, “oh yeah, we need to have *diversity* like that!”?—

    Because people see America’s reality according to the power of the media.

    Look… when Stalin was starving millions in Ukraine, the Soviet media suppressed all that and instead provided images of happy farmers making great progress. And many in the West soaked it all up. Walter Duranty got a Pulitzer for reporting what he knew to be a lie.
    And when Mao was killing millions during the Great Leap Forward, the Chinese media made it seem as though China was happy and well-fed. Edgar Snow traveled to China in the late 5os and returned with a glowing portrait. Starvation? He said he didn’t see any.
    And my professor of China history in college told me that when he was in college, all his professors and fellow students were leftists. They willfully swallowed Chinese commie lies. When reports came from Taiwan of mass starvation in the mainland, my professor told me his professors pooh-poohed it as ‘right-wing propaganda’.

    Same goes for the US. What people in other nations know about the US comes from the media. It’s like so many Russians thought Americans were worse off than they were cuz Soviet propaganda showed poor Americans being exploited by capitalists. It gets even more hilarious. China was many times poorer than Russia in the 1970s, but according to Anchee Min in COOKED SEED, she grew up thinking Americans were poorer than Chinese like her. ROTFL.

    So, people’s sense of reality depends on who controls the media. Outside our immediate experience, EVERYTHING we know about the world comes through the media. We often forget that the media aren’t the objective truth but selective truth as decided by a handful of elitists.

    US may be freer than most nations, but the mass media are controlled by a handful of people, and they belong to a certain tribe and of a certain ideology. The ideological indoctrination is so powerful and deviation from the dogma leads to such harsh punishment — Helen Thomas, Rick Sanchez, Steve ‘let the good times roll’ Sailer — that the media eventually ends up with dimwit dogmatists and cynical sociopaths.

    So, many Europeans don’t get a true picture of the US. They get it from slanted news, slanted even more by even more PC news in Europe. And Hollywood movies are those that would have us believe that all the street thugs in the US are white. Europeans watching Law and Order will think US is overrun with white killers and crooks while noble blacks are doing their best help decent white folks from evil whites.

    Every year, so many innocent whites are raped or killed by blacks, but the world news is about how a ‘gentle giant’ was murdered by some ‘racist white cop’, even though the cop only acted in self-defense.

    We need a new paradigm and new media.
    Europeans don’t see the real America but an America through the prism of PC.

    The power of media is immense. Look at western coverage of Sochi Olympics. So many lies. Look how Jay Leno got millions of suckers into believing Putin is new Hitler because russia won’t allow homo parades. Look how Hussein went from ‘moderate Arab leader’ to ‘new hitler or stalin’. Look how Iran’s been vilified endlessly while Israel has been let off the hook for all its bad behavior, such as USS Liberty attack.
    Look how homos went from weirdos to the most wonderful angels. Biden said 85% of shift in US attitudes toward homos was determined by Jewish control of the media.
    Due to media manipulation, Americans think 25% of Americans are homo!

    There is information aligned with reality and there is misinformation at war with reality. And the US media are not about the truth. Jews and homos know that if the media dealt with the truth, their power would crumble. So, we go on and on about ‘white privilege’ even though Jews have most privilege. We go on and on about ‘homophobia’ even though ‘phobia’ has nothing to do with opposition to homo power that is more aggressive and censorious than McCarthyism.

    Your comments about other countries' misguided perceptions of the USA are thought-provoking.

    When we Americans watch dramas on television and movies and see that most of the judges are Black and most of the criminals are White, we understand that these fictitious characters are dramatic conventions that we can enjoy through suspension of disbelief. For us Americans, the racial miscasting is a cultural inside joke.

    Likewise, in Shakespeare's time, the audiences understood that the female characters were played by male actors. The sexual miscasting was a dramatic convention that the audience filtered through a suspension of disbelief, enjoying a cultural inside joke.

    American audiences understand that, in reality, the norm is White judges and Black criminals. The opposite portrayal in American dramas is an inside joke for American audiences.

    Audiences watching the same dramas in other countries do not get the inside joke.

    (See the Wikipedia articles on dramatic convention, suspension of belief and in-joke.)

    The immense anti-white pressure from the media leads people to try and prove how non-racist they are and one way of doing that is loudly proclaiming how great a black sports star is. Women do the same using Oprah or black singers.

    Censorship? What do we need censorship for? These are kids. They have parents. That's one of the things parents are for.

    If their parents won't exert influence over what they allow their children to see and hear, it's certainly not society's job to do so. We had various speech codes before, and they were terrible. We're currently instituting speech codes based on 'political correctness' - it's one of the reasons Mr. Sailer's various sites tend to be categorized as 'hate speech'.

    Keep your compromises to yourself.

    It’s not censorship–it’s discipline about behavior and conduct. School environments result in the social and cultural cues that children acquire–hence their conduct and behavior. Peer pressure–going along to get along–has far more influence than teachers or parents. As society operates the schools, it makes it society’s job to set the terms of disciple and structure, i.e. boundaries and rules regarding what is acceptable, and what is expected.

    When “anything goes” anything will.

    How well do Pakeha kids do at rugby these days? I've heard that the Maori/PI guys are taking over.

    Because the PI birthrate is far higher than the European and because of immigration into New Zealand. I’m sick to death of listening to recently naturalized “All Blacks” spouting about how proud they are about “pulling on the jersey”. The best All blacks are still white: Reid, McCaw, Smith. And don’t claim McCaw as a Maori, he has about as much blood as I do which is zero.

    Malmo, Sweden has "experienced" a dozen grenade attacks this year. Stockholm suburb IKEA is the scene of two knifings (fatal) by immigrants from Eritrea. Etc. Etc.

    Can you imagine the million small but nasty social interactions happening in Sweden everyday that don't make the news? None of the nastiness existed just a few decades ago!

    The Right pushes back in other Nordic societies but not Sweden. The Left runs Sweden totally and no matter how bad it gets the solution is always more of the Left. It's the equivalent of a one party state like CA or NY.

    There is zero evidence that left wing societies raise test scores.

    Native Swede scores drop because Swedish students in diverse school have to spend more mental resources struggling to avoid getting beaten up by immigrants.

    The article says that 3rd world people account for 1/3 of the drop. Along with what you said a teacher has to teach at the speed of the stupidest student. If it takes Latrina 20 min to understand why 2+2=4 the rest of the class is effectively stopped learning until new material is presented. Instead of teaching 30 concepts in a day kids are bored most of the day as 5 concepts get explained to the stupidest 3rd world spawn.

    Yes, experienced a variation of this first-hand when I was part of a cohort of white kids bused to a black elementary school in large mid-South city in the early 70s. The school was made 50-50 and the classes were 50-50 but it ended up that after a very brief time of trying to incorporate both groups of children into discussions the teachers began teaching to the white children (on average 2 grades or more ahead of the blacks) and made peremptory efforts to include the black kids in discussions without putting them in too many embarrassing situations (learned quickly as it became apparent a large percent of the 4th grade blacks couldn't read).

    Carrying out that threat on an Islamic leader is called ‘a Sultan battery.’

    I lived for years is Sweden. First off, irrespective of immigration, Swedes are very lax in disciplining their children. It has long been illegal to strike a kid there and kids usually run wild and do things that would never be accepted in the States. The education system has long been oriented towards bringing the lowest performers up – intelligent kids were an embarrassment and instead of encouraged to move ahead, they were held back and used to help bring up the slacker students. In fact Sweden was all about mediocrity, I’m a working class advocate myself but I have to admit back then, thirty years ago, the working class had way too much power there and seriously kept the weak bourgeoisie in check.

    But with the onslaught of mass 3rd world immigration, the Swedish authorities had to allow “free” or charter schools so that indigenous Swedish parents could find “good” schools that were free of the immigrant taint. Otherwise the Swedish people would not have accepted mass immigration. So for the most part poor immigrants are stuck in immigrant areas and go to schools mostly with other immigrants. Swedish kids generally get to be educated with their own kind.

    So a whole bunch of privatized “free” schools have opened in Sweden. But the “free” schools are seriously lax and exaggerate the Swedish tendency to pamper their children. No grades are given and no studying is expected. Often they are even more lax than public schools. They practically give the kids answers to tests to keep their test scores up. There are only a very few elite schools where standards are high.

    I know one parent who was telling me his kid had a test to study for but the kid refused and instead played computer games (father's a total wus). There were some study questions and the kid could not answer anything. The parent decided to let the kid fail to make an example (also it was the easy way out to avoid confronting his kid). Anyway the kid came home the next day with a super high score and said that the teachers had in one way or another, given the kids the answers. This kid absolutely never studies after school which shocks his Swedish father, himself a product of a relatively lax system, although the shock is not enough to encourage the father to confront his child and do anything about it. Politically the father is a radical, Ayn Rand loving libertarian who hates the state and socialism but loves immigration.

    So immigration is not only directly to blame for the low scores, but also indirectly, through the “free” schools, it has allowed existing weaknesses to metastasize further throughout the system.

    When I talk to other Westerners living in Sweden, it is the one thing everyone agrees on: the Swedish education system is total crap. But somehow they have managed to be a successful country up until now. But combining the native weakness of the education system with the overwhelming negative impacts of mass 3rd world immigration, the future is anything but bright for Sweden. Seriously, they will be the first EU nation to fall to Islamist rule.

    Would these people care if their nation fell? Do that have that in them? Or are they just empty vessels? Straight question. I don’t know much about them, but when I meet people from there, there’s this kind of passive emptiness about them.

    I.q. is tied to race. Today’s modern “Arabs” (about 85%) have black ancestry because of Islamic polygamy and concubinage. North Africa originally had Caucasian peoples. The ancient Egyptians, Hannibal, St. Augustine are examples of these peoples. When Islam became entrenched in North Africa, this produced the miscegenation we see today (and the concomitant drop in iqs.). Only about 10-15% of North Africans today are Caucasians. The Kybyla of Algeria are an example. This whiteness is also prevalent among most of the North Africans who remained Christian and were segregated from their muslim neighbors. The only Christians who show sign of race-mixing are the Copts of Egypt.

    Women like bad boys.

    Who are badder bad boys than NAZIs? NAZIs don't really exist anymore, so they are great fictionalized monsters, like vampires.

    Nazis have been subjects of romance porn books and movies for women for a long time now. There were a wave of nazi romances in the 1970s.

    This book is only controversial because of the Christian conversion.

    The Night Porter (1974) starring Charlotte Rampling is an interesting example of this, directed by a female Italian.

    Rampling took some grief for starring as a jew falling in love with a nazi, but the movie actually isn’t bad.

    It was mostly Whites and Latinos, lolollolololl! Probably free-lancers. Looks down on the fly: poor theatrics, no matching or BLM shirts, etc.

    BLM has become such an embarrassment with their elder abuse and obviousness of solo Bernie attacks that this needed to “become multi-ethnic” and fast! No thuggish #BowDownBernie-like hashtag released either.

    Will it be enough to save Black Lives Matters? Keep hope alive! Bernie and Trump, maybe others, will be going to fairs this weekend. BLM’s two Bernie hits involved general large-attended events involving other figures, politicians. Hitting a fair would be very much in keeping with the modus operandi of BLM.

    (They “tried” to hit Hillary, but arrived a couple hours too late, darn! A few pictures were released showing Hillary listening respectfully. Nobody was screaming in her face. #BowDownHillary was not released on Twitter to coincide with the confrontation. We’re still waiting on the video they said is coming.)

    http://m.lasvegassun.com/news/2015/aug/12/north-las-vegas-jeb-bush-challenged-black-lives-ma/"

    Black Lives Matter sure as hell better not hashtag BowDownHillary, after all George Soros puts food, clothing, and a roof over the head of the Black employees who work for this AstroTurf organization. Hillary Clinton is George Soros bitch ass hoe, so he probably gave Black Lives Matter the memo that she is off limits. She is untouchable because Hillary is the chosen one personally hand picked by billionaire George.

    Latinas are wearing pink Planned Parenthood t-shirts… Can’t recall seeing too many hefty Latinas at abortion rallies before, lol! Then there is SEIU guy.

    Depends on who you ask. The real difference is between people who need to open their mouth to be identified as foreigners and those whose skin reveal they're foreigners.

    Swedes definitely do not consider Arabs white. People like Greeks are visibly different from Swedes and are considered foreign. Not foreign enough for some of the Arabs, Kurds etc who call themself Antonio and the like and pretend to be Italian.

    There are blacks everywhere these days. Wouldn't surprise me if Stockholm is over 5% black.

    Otago Province which is overwhelmingly Pakeha (European) does best at school. Here being PI or Maori is “cool”. Pakeha children are much more susceptible to peer pressure to be cool than Asian kids and it helps foster a couldn’t-care-less attitude in diverse schools. Maori kids speak US ghetto. The trend is spreading.

     

    Not to be to much of a school marm, but this is why censorship of truly trashy stuff is a good thing. Kids should not be hearing nasty gangsta rap. It really is degrading. I know, I know, I love free speech, too. But at some point there has to be some compromise of ideals with reality.

    I'm with you. I'd been drifting away from enjoying big-time professional and college sports - particularly football and basketball - for awhile for a variety of reasons (not having too many players that looked like me was certainly one of them), but, ironically, it was something that I read here on iSteve that put the nail in the coffin. Somebody noted that the slavish devotion that so many men show to professional (and college) athletes was frankly gay.

    (Baseball seemed a bit of exception as many of its fans are more stat guys who love the strategy.)

    Listen to sports radio hosts and their callers some time, and you will see what I'm talking about. They really do display a serious undercurrent of homosexuality. I'm in no way claiming that these sports fans are closet gays, just that their worshipping of certain athletes is a little weird for grown men.

    Baruch Spinoza?

    Also, they might not have been admiring, but the people who dealt with Jewish moneylenders must have certainly been aware of their flair for business.
     

    Stereotypes (which, as we know, tend to be broadly accurate) on Jewish intellect show a shift over time:

    Antiquity: No one thought that the Ancient Israelites were sharper than average.On the other hand, everyone thought that the Greeks were really smart.

    Middle Ages: This is when the notion of the "smart Jew" starts to emerge.

    As for Jewish intellectual contributions:

    If we discount purely religious stuff (Paul, etc), not much happens before the 19th century.Basically, you get a handful of figures like Maimonides, Spinoza, Ricardo, etc.Perhaps Montaigne (Converso ancestry).But that's about it.

    Traditional Jewish culture creates successful businessmen (tax-farmers, merchants, estate managers, etc) and Talmudic scholars.It doesn't do so well* when it comes to producing mathematicians, physicists, etc.Murray briefly discusses this point in Human Accomplishment (404)


    *Note how Spinoza was cast out by the Jewish community

    I have met a few Arabs in university, they are what you would describe as competently smart, rather than 10000000000 iq score smart.

    Why this unimpressive record? There are many factors—economic, ideological, technical—but perhaps the most important has to do with culture and certain societal attributes which inhibit Arabs from producing an effective military force.

    It is a truism of military life that an army fights as it trains, and so I draw on my many years of firsthand observation of Arabs in training to draw conclusions about the ways in which they go into combat. The following impressions derive from personal experience with Arab military establishments in the capacity of U.S. military attaché and security assistance officer, observer officer with the British-officer Trucial Oman Scouts (the security force in the emirates prior to the establishment of the United Arab Emirates), as well as some thirty year's study of the Middle East.

    Well in the U.S. during the 50-60's and early 70's there used to be broadcast standards for radio and TV and pressure groups like the Catholic League that did a pretty good job at keeping c**p off airwaves. I think it used to be called the golden age of TV.

    Of course that doesn't jibe with today's secular/progressive/modern societal notions that embraces every toxic, imbecilic and nihilistic expression out there. And the proponents of this toxic stew don't tell you that it's poisonous to society, especially when you expose young children to it and worse when they see the promoters of the filth exalted as artistic geniuses by the elite.

    If you want to see long term exposure look at Norway(whose principal export seems to be black metal rock)Sweden, and that stronghold of apex WASPs - England. They're all rotting. Doesn't matter if they have high IQ's when their cultures promotes nihilism, vapidity and indolence. They deserve to die.

    the Catholic League that did a pretty good job at keeping c**p off airwaves.

    I wish the Catholics would go back to that kind of work instead of trying to make immigrants from sub-Sahara Africa feel comfortable in US cities.

    The article says that 3rd world people account for 1/3 of the drop. Along with what you said a teacher has to teach at the speed of the stupidest student. If it takes Latrina 20 min to understand why 2+2=4 the rest of the class is effectively stopped learning until new material is presented. Instead of teaching 30 concepts in a day kids are bored most of the day as 5 concepts get explained to the stupidest 3rd world spawn.

    Along with what you said a teacher has to teach at the speed of the stupidest student.

    Yes, experienced a variation of this first-hand when I was part of a cohort of white kids bused to a black elementary school in large mid-South city in the early 70s. The school was made 50-50 and the classes were 50-50 but it ended up that after a very brief time of trying to incorporate both groups of children into discussions the teachers began teaching to the white children (on average 2 grades or more ahead of the blacks) and made peremptory efforts to include the black kids in discussions without putting them in too many embarrassing situations (learned quickly as it became apparent a large percent of the 4th grade blacks couldn’t read).

    The immense anti-white pressure from the media leads people to try and prove how non-racist they are and one way of doing that is loudly proclaiming how great a black sports star is. Women do the same using Oprah or black singers.

    The Color Purple is a world class novel. So is Beloved. Michelle Obama is gorgeous. Ta-Nehisi Coates is our greatest public intellectual. Whites learned everything they know about music from blacks. Blacks are the one group in this country most responsible for our economic prosperity. The Ancient Egyptians were black . . .

    ---Why would anyone look at the US and its troubles and think, “oh yeah, we need to have *diversity* like that!”?---

    Because people see America's reality according to the power of the media.

    Look... when Stalin was starving millions in Ukraine, the Soviet media suppressed all that and instead provided images of happy farmers making great progress. And many in the West soaked it all up. Walter Duranty got a Pulitzer for reporting what he knew to be a lie.
    And when Mao was killing millions during the Great Leap Forward, the Chinese media made it seem as though China was happy and well-fed. Edgar Snow traveled to China in the late 5os and returned with a glowing portrait. Starvation? He said he didn't see any.
    And my professor of China history in college told me that when he was in college, all his professors and fellow students were leftists. They willfully swallowed Chinese commie lies. When reports came from Taiwan of mass starvation in the mainland, my professor told me his professors pooh-poohed it as 'right-wing propaganda'.

    Same goes for the US. What people in other nations know about the US comes from the media. It's like so many Russians thought Americans were worse off than they were cuz Soviet propaganda showed poor Americans being exploited by capitalists. It gets even more hilarious. China was many times poorer than Russia in the 1970s, but according to Anchee Min in COOKED SEED, she grew up thinking Americans were poorer than Chinese like her. ROTFL.

    So, people's sense of reality depends on who controls the media. Outside our immediate experience, EVERYTHING we know about the world comes through the media. We often forget that the media aren't the objective truth but selective truth as decided by a handful of elitists.

    US may be freer than most nations, but the mass media are controlled by a handful of people, and they belong to a certain tribe and of a certain ideology. The ideological indoctrination is so powerful and deviation from the dogma leads to such harsh punishment -- Helen Thomas, Rick Sanchez, Steve 'let the good times roll' Sailer -- that the media eventually ends up with dimwit dogmatists and cynical sociopaths.

    So, many Europeans don't get a true picture of the US. They get it from slanted news, slanted even more by even more PC news in Europe. And Hollywood movies are those that would have us believe that all the street thugs in the US are white. Europeans watching Law and Order will think US is overrun with white killers and crooks while noble blacks are doing their best help decent white folks from evil whites.

    Every year, so many innocent whites are raped or killed by blacks, but the world news is about how a 'gentle giant' was murdered by some 'racist white cop', even though the cop only acted in self-defense.

    We need a new paradigm and new media.
    Europeans don't see the real America but an America through the prism of PC.

    The power of media is immense. Look at western coverage of Sochi Olympics. So many lies. Look how Jay Leno got millions of suckers into believing Putin is new Hitler because russia won't allow homo parades. Look how Hussein went from 'moderate Arab leader' to 'new hitler or stalin'. Look how Iran's been vilified endlessly while Israel has been let off the hook for all its bad behavior, such as USS Liberty attack.
    Look how homos went from weirdos to the most wonderful angels. Biden said 85% of shift in US attitudes toward homos was determined by Jewish control of the media.
    Due to media manipulation, Americans think 25% of Americans are homo!

    There is information aligned with reality and there is misinformation at war with reality. And the US media are not about the truth. Jews and homos know that if the media dealt with the truth, their power would crumble. So, we go on and on about 'white privilege' even though Jews have most privilege. We go on and on about 'homophobia' even though 'phobia' has nothing to do with opposition to homo power that is more aggressive and censorious than McCarthyism.

    Europeans watching Law and Order will think US is overrun with white killers and crooks while noble blacks are doing their best help decent white folks from evil whites.

    Your comments about other countries’ misguided perceptions of the USA are thought-provoking.

    When we Americans watch dramas on television and movies and see that most of the judges are Black and most of the criminals are White, we understand that these fictitious characters are dramatic conventions that we can enjoy through suspension of disbelief. For us Americans, the racial miscasting is a cultural inside joke.

    Likewise, in Shakespeare’s time, the audiences understood that the female characters were played by male actors. The sexual miscasting was a dramatic convention that the audience filtered through a suspension of disbelief, enjoying a cultural inside joke.

    American audiences understand that, in reality, the norm is White judges and Black criminals. The opposite portrayal in American dramas is an inside joke for American audiences.

    Audiences watching the same dramas in other countries do not get the inside joke.

    So much blah blah in this article:

    http://www.politico.eu/article/dirty-dozen-12-people-who-ruined-turkey-democracy-human-rights/

    Turkey’s real problem? Too much diversity.

    Turkey’s fears of Kurds make it do ‘extreme’ things. Same thing with Israelis and Palestinians.

    Diversity sucks, so why push it on Europe?

    It seems Germany learned the wrong lesson from WWII.

    The problem was Germany didn’t respect national borders, invaded and violated other nations, threatened genocide on other peoples, and etc.

    So, the proper lesson of WWII should be NO NATION OR PEOPLE SHOULD INVADE OTHER NATIONS AND PEOPLES. RESPECT BORDERS, RESPECT CULTURES, RESPECT RACES. LEAVE OTHERS ALONE AS YOU WANT THEM TO LEAVE YOUR PEOPLE ALONE.

    But what is happening to Europe now? We have a massive demographic blitzkrieg from the Middle East and Africa. (To be sure, refugees from the Middle East are somewhat understandable as part of blowback or flowback. If EU hadn’t gone along with US and Israel’s war on the Muslim world, there would be much greater peace/stability in the region and far fewer refugees. US messes it up, EU has to pay the demographic price. Africa is different matter. Blacks mess everything up and want global section 8 to mess up other nations.)

    Germans should be opposing the 1000 YR AFREICH, but instead they are welcoming the invaders. They are actually no different from the French collaborators. They think they are being nice decent people, but they are allowing the destruction and genocide of their own race by waves of invaders who will keep coming and coming and coming and coming until Germany is no longer Germany but just another failed black society.

    During WWII, Germans waged wrongful war on other nations. Now, they wage a wrongful war on themselves by aiding the invaders and conquerors.

  135. Even with this effect included, immigration is nevertheless unlikely to be the only reason behind Sweden’s falling educational performance. While the left’s arguments have been debunked, there are more plausible explanations, explored elsewhere by myself and my colleague Dr Tino Sanandaji. In short: the rise of an overly progressive educational culture is likely to be an important culprit.

    I actually agree with this. According to TIMSS:

    http://www.unz.com/akarlin/scandinavians-cant-do-fractions/

    Now PISA is significantly more g-loaded than TIMSS. Even so, so it does presuppose some basic academic preparation, so a modest decline in PISA scores is not surprising when one considers that a mere 14% (sic!) of Swedish 8th graders can do basic fractions. This is in comparison with 29% in the US, with all its NAMs, and 63% in Russia, which isn’t usually near the top of anyone’s sophisticated white countries list.

    What we appear to be seeing in Scandinavia is that the Third Worldization of the schools precedes the Third Worldization of the people. Maybe its the humane thing to do, to lessen Sven’s cultural shock as the Jamals move in.

    “If there are so many intelligent whites, why are they being colonised by the undeveloped world ?”

    Because the colonists (immigrants) are weapons in political wars in the west. The immigrants themselves are the equivalent of cannon fodder, though in this case that suits them fine.

    The western democratic welfare state and modern transportation technology has made it susceptible to political competition based on moving voters who will need to be aligned with particular politics into political districts. Immigration to the west is a modern form of gerrymandering.

    This gerrymandering by moving voters into a district is not really a war; it’s really terribly mundane. If it was a real war it would receive lots of attention. But incremental gerrymandering? Who ever got concerned over that? Who even pays attention to that? It’s not news. The eyes glaze over.

    Of course, getting elected, staying in office, and staying in power should be important things, but sometimes it’s helpful to those involved if things are kept out of the news. In particular if you went into politics or the media to achieve personal objectives not aligned with the greater well-being of the country.

    My experience has been to encounter a surprising number of Swedes in silicon valley. Numerically I expect they are punching above their weight. They are often in product management, field sales, technical product management, that sort of thing, and they do well. Talking to them, they’re in silicon valley more to get out of Sweden then to get into silicon valley, though of course it’s some of both. They are not as desperate as the Indians, but they still want out.

    I expect Sweden is suffering measurable Brain Drain, amongst other things.

    “Why Arabs Lose Wars”, Norvell B. De Atkine, Middle East Quarterly, December 1999:

    “…a U.S. Army retired colonel with eight years residence in Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt, and a graduate degree in Arab studies from the American University of Beirut, is currently instructing U.S. Army personnel assigned to Middle Eastern areas. …

    …culture does need to be taken into account. …

    …criticism leveled at Samuel Huntington’s notion of a “clash of civilizations” in no way lessens the vital point he made—that however much the grouping of peoples by religion and culture rather than political or economic divisions offends academics who propound a world defined by class, race, and gender, it is a reality, one not diminished by modern communications. …

    …a deficiency in our own military education system: “Culture, comprised of all that is vague and intangible, is not generally integrated into strategic planning except at the most superficial level.” …

    …Arabs husband information and hold it especially tightly. …

    …officers have a phenomenal ability to commit vast amounts of knowledge to memory…

    …Head-to-head competition among individuals is generally avoided, at least openly, for it means that someone wins and someone else loses, with the loser humiliated. This taboo has particular import…

    enlisted soldiers simply do not trust their officers

    …the nail that stands up gets hammered down. …

    …Taking responsibility for a policy, operation, status, or training program rarely occurs. …

    …the trust indicated by delegation of responsibility to a lower level are rare. …

    …the well-known lack of trust among Arabs for anyone outside their own family adversely affects offensive operations…

    …In a culture in which almost every sphere of human endeavor, including business and social relationships, is based on a family structure…

    …the complex mosaic system of peoples creates additional problems for training, as rulers in the Middle East make use of the sectarian and tribal loyalties to maintain power. …

    …The same lack of trust operates at the interstate level, where Arab armies exhibit very little trust of each other, and with good reason.

    …the top political leadership displays a complete lack of concern for the welfare of its soldiers, such attitudes percolate down through the ranks…

    …Arab officers do not see any value in sharing information among themselves…”

    Maybe it’s the way of the future, maybe not. Lessons in how not to do things and all that.

    I partially agree.

    I think that it's ridiculous that grown men take interest in children's games. I know so many adult men who are obsessed with a bunch of guys who get paid to throw around a ball. Some of my coworkers spend their lunch break looking up the stats of high school players who are looking to commit university sports programs. It's just bizarre. Most men at my workplace (most of whom are college-educate) don't even understand the basics of America's immigration or trade policies, but they can offer a thorough discussion of the West Coast offense.

    I think that a lot of American men lack masculinity in their own lives, so they live vicariously through athletes. If they're younger, they also live vicariously through entertainers and celebrities. Americans have always been sports oriented, but these days sports enthusiasm is just so over the top.

    On the other hand, I personally watch a lot of football. So maybe I'm no better........

    There was an interesting movie that was inspired by culture of obsessive American male sports fans.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzQKeqMogh8

    A bunch of middle-age overweight white guys fawn over some muscular 20-something black guy because he can catch a ball. At the same time, they remain generally apathetic about the economic and culture degeneration of their country. It's really strange when you think about it.

    Too true. A corollary is the strength of an overweight middle-aged guy’s opinion about a sport is a direct inverse of his having actually played said sport.

    Some of it has to do with Soviet doctrine being what it was at the time, and more than a bit with the US running insane logistics trains to Israel. Oh and Arab nepotism undoubtedly played a factor - promoting your second cousin's nephew to colonel of armor cause you want to keep your uncle happy works until the rubber meets the road.

    The Hashemites of Jordan are a notable exception as they have a strong martial tradition, with scions spending time being treated like the cherries they are before they're even allowed to think of leading anyone. My understanding is that this only intensified after the Arab-Israel wars, and why their king basically went and got a flight suit before leading a bombing raid on IS last year. It also helps explain why IS hasn't had too much success in stirring up shit in Jordan despite a favorable environment - lots of steel in those forces.

    Contra this with Saudi Arabia's high tech army getting it's dick knocked stiff by the Houthi in Yemen. Bunch of spoiled princes and poor conscripts versus desert guerillas. Went about how one would expect.

    why their king basically went and got a flight suit before leading a bombing raid on IS last year.

    He put on a flight suit and got his picture taken. He didn’t actually personally get in a plane and bomb Daesh, you moron.
