Given the current federal government shut-down over funding of a border-wall and the continuing increase in Internet censorship and “deplatforming,” I’ve decided I might as well publish a lengthy note I’d privately circulated last year to a considerable number of individuals, many of whom were then prominently associated with the “Alt-Right” movement.

A few people had suggested at the time that I release it, but I felt I was much too preoccupied with my software work to involve myself in any resulting discussion. The heated reaction to my recent discussion of racial politics in California does indicate that these issues still deserve a wider audience.

Very little has happened in the last fifteen months that would cause me to reconsider any of my views.

A Confidential Note to Various “Alt-Right” People and Others
Dated: August 21, 2017

I’ve been very dismayed by the recent “political purge” being conducted by some of the largest Internet companies, in which numerous controversial websites of the “Alt Right” have suddenly been “disappeared,” and in which all sorts of basic Internet services such as PayPal have been terminated to many of the others on grounds of political ideology. Some of these sites might eventually come back, but I’d assume that others are gone forever.

This is a very disheartening development, and has enormous negative implications for freedom of thought on the Internet. I’m very busy with my own software work, but have already run or republished a number of highly critical articles of this purge on my website, and will certainly continue to do so in the future. I’ve also run numerous articles suggesting that the current excuse for this purge, namely the recent violence at Charlottesville, is being heavily slanted and misreported in the MSM.

There’s also a chance that some of the projects I’m currently working on might somewhat help somewhat mitigate this situation, though none of you should much count upon that for the immediate future.

However, that being said, I’d like to provide some very candid observations regarding what I think were some of the factors over the years that put all of you in this terrible predicament. Whether or not you decide to accept my conclusions is your own choice, but the sentiments I’m expressing are entirely sincere.

First, I’m sure that all of you realize that there are very powerful interests that are extremely hostile to your positions, and which are always looking for some means of shutting you down, one way or another. These groups possess enormous wealth, media power, and political connections and none of you have any of those things. Under such circumstances, I think that the “risky behavior” in which some of you have chosen to indulge has contributed to your situation.

I’d also like to emphasize that many of your opponents, whether in the commanding heights of power or in the form of “antifa”-associated radical activists, engage in all sorts of questionable and dishonest behavior as well, saying all sorts of things that are extreme or just aren’t true. But since their side almost entirely controls the distribution of information in the MSM and elsewhere, they can get away with these things while you yourselves cannot. That’s certainly not fair, but as the old saying goes “Life is Unfair.”

Now although I’m a software developer and live in the heart of Silicon Valley in Palo Alto, I’m really not part of the mainstream “tech community” and only very slightly know a few of the prominent figures in it. But I think I have a reasonably good sense of what’s going on and why they’re taking the absolutely unprecedented step of purging many of you from the Internet.

My strong impression is that most of the leading Silicon Valley people are generally pretty nice and reasonable, but are very politically unsophisticated. They’re totally focused on technology and business issues, and with a few exceptions here and there, don’t really pay any deep attention to politics or ideological matters, sub-contracting out those things to the same “mainstream” opinion-forming elites who provide that role for almost everyone else in our society. Just think of the leading Silicon Valley people as your pleasant, college-educated next door neighbors, who sporadically catch the regular news on TV, glance at the newspaper headlines, and regard that as the reality of the world.

As an example, when “everyone says” that Russia hacked our presidential election, well, then, I suppose that Russia must have hacked our presidential election. And pretty much the same applies to matters of race, ethnicity, and social policy.

Now most sensible people somewhat weigh the reality presented in the MSM against what they actually experience in their day-to-day lives, and if there’s a sharp divergence between the two, they may gradually become suspicious of the MSM, and begin turning to alternate sources of information, even including the sort of ideological views presented on your own websites. That’s obviously why your own readership has risen quite a lot over the last few years, and why Donald Trump stunned America’s elites by winning the presidency despite 99% opposition in the MSM. Maybe all the TV programs told working class whites in the Midwest or the South that things under Obama were great and Trump was horrible, but when they looked around themselves, they saw something totally different, so they decided the MSM was just lying and voted Trump.

ORDER IT NOW

But the problem that all of you face is that when people in Silicon Valley look around themselves, what they see reasonably matches the claims of the MSM, while if they ever visit Breitbart, let alone any of your own Alt-Right websites, you mostly come across like a bunch of total lunatics. Therefore, when the MSM recently claimed that you were all a bunch of violent, murderous madmen, they stampeded the Silicon Valley people into deciding to help shut all of you down as a public service to America.

Let’s take a few salient issues. Over the last year or two, I’d guess that 70% of the most visible and heated rhetoric coming from Donald Trump has involved ferocious attacks on Muslims, Mexicans, and immigrants in general, and certainly that’s also been a major theme of his backers both in the Alt-Right and the Alt-Lite.

Now obviously, almost every mainstream/prominent figure in American politics and media, Democrat and Republican, has denounced these attacks in the strongest possible terms as “racist,” “bigoted,” etc. But that had no impact upon Trump’s support in e.g. West Virginia, since the people there watched FoxNews shows about Muslims conquering America and imposing Sharia law, and had become very fearful. The fact that ordinary West Virginians have almost no real life contact with Mexicans, Muslims, or immigrants left them open to such nonsense.

But Silicon Valley is a different story. One-third of the local population consists of Hispanic immigrants, mostly Mexican and a large fraction from an illegal immigrant background. There are huge numbers of other immigrants in the technology industry, and a noticeable slice of them are Muslims. Nearly all of these groups seem like perfectly fine people, very few are criminals, and virtually none are terrorists. Trump and Ann Coulter and others may talk about swarming hordes of “Mexican rapists,” but they just don’t seem to exist in real life. Rightwingers may claim that immigrant crime has been forcing affluent whites to barricade themselves inside gated communities, but Silicon Valley has no gated communities. For twenty years, Steve Jobs lived in an ordinary house sitting on an ordinary street, one which wouldn’t have seemed too out of place in the white-bread San Fernando Valley of the 1950s, and the same is true for many of the other top Silicon Valley execs.

Alt-Right people are always talking about the horrific future consequences of white Europeans becoming a minority, but they already became a minority decades ago in Silicon Valley, and these days are probably down to around 30% or so. Yet everything is perfectly fine here. Well, not perfectly fine since everyone is always complaining about traffic being terrible and housing prices ridiculously high, but these aren’t exactly the central concerns raised by the Alt-Right.

California overall is almost 40% Hispanic these days, heading towards an outright majority, and the top two leaders in the State Legislature are Hispanic, as are many of the other members. But although tearing down “racist” Civil War monuments has become the burning issue in the South and along the East Coast, there hasn’t been the slightest talk of doing anything to the various monuments or towns honoring various figures from the Mexican-American War or the annexation of California. Frankly, the whole notion would seem so ridiculous it would just be laughed out of court.

Admittedly, some of the renaming nonsense did recently spread to ultra-liberal Palo Alto. Some ultra-PC immigrant from Sweden was horrified to discover that two of the local middle schools, Terman and Jordan, were named after pro-eugenicist academics from the Stanford of a century ago, and despite opposition he stampeded the Palo Alto school board into voting to rename those schools, but although it’s ridiculous, it’s not exactly the same thing as what’s been happening with mobs attacking those those statues in New Orleans and elsewhere.

So the problem is that when people notice that many of the things your organizations are saying are absolutely 100% contrary to what they actually see in their ordinary lives, they quickly conclude that you’re just as crazy as your critics in the MSM always say you are, and they immediately dismiss all of your other claims and ideas. Perhaps that’s not entirely fair, but it’s what happens.

Meanwhile, certain other “alt-right”-type issues have very little daily resonance in Silicon Valley. For example, black behavior here is just as problematical as it is elsewhere, and blacks are responsible for a remarkably high fraction of all the serious local crime. But since there are very few blacks, it’s relatively easy for local “good-thinking” people to pretend not to notice the problem. Overall, California has by far the lowest black percentage of any large state, and for Silicon Valley, the figure is something like 3%, of which a relatively high fraction are middle-class engineers and such, while overall crime rates are too low for it to be much of an issue. Anyway, my impression was that Trump and his people were far too PC to ever talk much about black crime, instead focusing their concerns on the deadly threat of pro-Iranian terrorists and Islamic Shariah Law and all that sort of nonsense.

The bottom line is that some of the things the Alt-Right has been saying for years are generally true while other things are generally false. Your misfortune is that it is the falsehoods which have the most day-to-day presence in the lives of the Silicon Valley community, thus leading to their total dismissal of your entire message, and perhaps the blacklisting of most of your websites and organizations, thereby setting a very dangerous precedent for the future of the First Amendment in America.

At this stage, I’m really not sure that any of you can do anything, and anyway maybe the newly Neoconized Trump administration will get us all into some crazy nuclear war with Russia or China or both, rendering this whole website situation completely moot. But I thought I might as well provide you my honest appraisal of how you got into these difficulties.

Like I said, I’m very busy with my software work, so perhaps I shouldn’t have taken the time to send this note, but the overall Internet trends are so unfortunate, I decided to put together a few quick words on the matter.

  1. Beautiful and touching essay Ron. We ought to be better than those Knee-jerk (((Breitbartards))) and must realize that although publications like those can blow a lot of hot smoke, they don’t really have a nuanced view of things like your webzine does (through people of a wide variety of opinions publish articles putting their take for all to see).

    Naturally, webzines like yours, with relatively intellectual people reading and commenting on it, are a much more serious threat to the powers that be. So have you considered about creating a backup of your TREMENDOUS archive?? And would it be possible to mirror it across different parts of the world lest things get, let’s say “interesting” in the US with a real crackdown on dissent?

    Regarding your other article, it did generate furious debate and of course a lot of fruitful discussion punctuated by sometimes funny, sometime crass ad-hominem attacks but such is life and people. Nonetheless, what made the conversation charged was your refusal to back down from your stand on immigration in California which is way more nuanced than can be presented in a mere comment. Which just shows how principled you are as a man, a most redeeming quality that seems to be fading out fast!

    Nonetheless please keep up the good work and may yours be a voice of reason and sanity, among the satanic insanity that seems to be have gripped the global elite. Their dark vision for the entire world is of a mongrelized monoculture of globo-homo, of barely human state approved bots parroting the politically correct state sponsored narrative. You are fighting the good fight. Whether we “win” or “lose” is secondary. What’s important is we tried and your webzine is indeed on the forefront of this effort! Kudos to you Mr. Unz!!

  2. Rational says:

    SOLUTION TO POLITICAL NET CENSORSHIP—STATE AND FEDERAL LEGISLATION.

    Thanks for the article, Sir. I think the people who are doing the internet censoring are not ordinary silicon valley engineers—they are the bosses at the top, such as the Saudis who own twitter, the Judaists who own FAcebook and Google, who are rabidly anti-American and anti-white.

    I am disappointed that the Republicans had control of both Houses and the White house in the last 2 years, but did not pass any law banning political censorship or political discrimination on the internet.

    I think the states should now take a lead. States should pass a law banning political discrimination by internet companies and payment processors by explicit legislation or declaring them as public utilities, etc.

    Ban a website for political speech (exc violence/porno)—1 million dollar fine per day.

    Every states in the US can pass this law.

    But even if ONE state only passes such a law, this problem will be solved, as it can acquire long arm jurisdiction over the entire company in the entire US, under the full faith and credit clause. People will flock to that state to sue Twitter, Paypal, Google, Facebook for banning them.

  3. On the other hand, the idea that all American wars are evil and wrong, that off-shoring is wrong, that reindustrialization is good, why these are true.

  4. gman says:

    I tend to agree with Peter Thiel’s characterization that politics in Silicon Valley is driven by fashion.

    In my view, Mark Zuckerberg’s support of Dreams, Black Lives Matter, Criminal Justice Reform and Marc Benioff’s threatening to pull Salesforce out of Indiana over Mike Pence’s ‘religious freedom’ bill indicate that tech leaders like socially (not economically) progressive ideas that are fashionable among elites. At some point, the tech leaders are tempted to purge to show solidarity with the fashionable views.

    At this stage, I’m really not sure that any of you can do anything

    This denouement really leaves much to be desired.

    I was expecting a punch-line, maybe a “try this one neat trick” lobbed at the reader.

    Very little has happened in the last fifteen months [i.e., Aug. 2017 to Dec. 2018] that would cause me to reconsider any of my views.

    ______________

    To try to pull out some implied advice:

    when people notice that many of the things your organizations are saying are absolutely 100% contrary to what they actually see in their ordinary lives, they quickly conclude that you’re just as crazy as your critics in the MSM always say you are

    Alt-Right people are always talking about the horrific future consequences of white Europeans becoming a minority

    I don’t see the mainline Alt-Right (to coin a term) talking like this (i.e., ranting about “horrific” consequences of a less-White America). The implied advice, anyway, seems to be to avoid rhetorical excesses. Sound advice, in theory.

    certain other “alt-right”-type issues have very little daily resonance in Silicon Valley

    Dr. Greg Johnson, long himself resident in the Bay Area, is an example of an Alt-Righter who consciously makes appeals to Silicon Valley types and similar types nationwide.

    Glad you said it. It’s the colour problem. In black communities that were or are not exposed to images of violence and rap music, violent crime is a rarity. The two together are a trigger to violent random events, usually not the slightest political. Sharia law threat to the West is a nonsense. Might even be a good thing if the Western world adopted Islam. Bill Cosby said, the best behaved black community in America were the black Moslems. Pity he wasn’t one himself.

  7. Substantially, I agree with most of what you say. The issue is what to do about it.

    More or less at random, the following thoughts come to mind.

    First, those of us who engage in thought crime of whatever form need an alternative web that is at least more difficult to shut down. As long as we’re at the mercy of mainstream censors, we’ll never get anywhere.

    Meantime, the issue is whether to appease or outrage. This always poses a quandary; I see it a lot in my own area of especial concern: Israel. Do you carefully assure everyone you agree Israel has a right to exist, dutifully decry ‘terrorism,’ avoid ever referring to ‘Jews,’ etc — and work yourself into a position of total impotence?

    Or do you rage about the disproportionate power, influence, and privilege of Jews, denounce Israel as essentially a Nazi state, argue that any measures against it are justified, and so on — and find yourself off in a corner with twelve other ‘anti-semites’, banned by all?

    This is a general problem. To take the path of moderation, and remain ‘legitimate’ at the risk if becoming innocuous — or call a spade a spade at the risk of being completely marginalized?

    Finally, which causes? Take Holocaust Denial. I happen to be convinced that the Holocaust happened substantially as advertised, but others aren’t.

    Well, speaking for myself, they’re free to argue their case. They can knock themselves out. As far as I’m concerned, it’s like faith in Jesus, or belief in Kennedy assassination plots, or any one of a dozen such convictions I just don’t share. Have at it, though. It’s like golf. Of no interest to me, but don’t let me spoil your fun.

    The problem I see is that in plugging Holocaust denial in particular, one immediately marginalizes both oneself and anyone one is associated with. Unz Review can have twelve interesting ideas that might actually gain traction with the casual visitor — but if Holocaust Denial is at the top of the page, he’ll move hastily on.

    It’s like Obama birtherism, or 9/11 having all been staged, or any one of several such beliefs. It’s an immediate red flag that triggers a ‘shake your head and move on’ response from most people.

    Again, I’m not sure what to do about that. There’s little point in decrying mainstream censorship if we’re just going to muzzle ourselves. On the other hand…

    Well, that’s about it for now. Unz’s points are thought-provoking.

  8. Math is a universal language and the personality of those who are good at it is, in the great ocean of human variation, a near-uniform personality. In Silicon Valley, it doesn’t matter if only 1 in 1,000 blacks can program, it only matters that many of those who can, live there. But if Silicon Valley people are this easily deluded about how the other 99.9% of humanity works, their power needs to be vastly reduced. Hence the movement to break up Big Tech.

    Looking to all that from the Russian side I think yes, Trump administration will get us there and there is nobody but Americans can do spmething about it.
    But they won’t – too buzy with alt-rights and LGBT issues, poor things.

  10. CalDre says:

    You seem unfamiliar with the radical La Raza groups (despite what they write on their website) and the “Reconquista” movement. Here’s a video from Costa Mesa about “Making America Mexican Again”.

    Not sure how you can be so wrong on this …..

  11. What’s the angle here Unz? What do you think are the major issues that concern people on the altright?

    Even if Latin Americans and muslims are A+ people that don’t commit more crime than average white Americans it doesn’t mean that we want or should want to be replaced by them in our communities.

    The opinion of tech titans and average tech employees is unimportant because they aren’t making the decisions. They are being bullied by the DoJ, ADL, and the press into censoring inconvenient opinions, not because they are untrue but because they interfere with the agenda.

    • Agree: Kemidov, Hail
  12. Anon[158] • Disclaimer says:

    Some on the Alt Right do raise alarm about Brown Violence, but ‘Latino’ crime isn’t their main worry. They believe that, even if all browns are good people, the demographic transformation will profoundly alter the national character of America. Also, even if most browns are rather nice and make okay neighbors, they supply votes for the globalist elites who, ensconced in power, wage more wars abroad, promote cultural decadence as the New Normal, and push economic policies that concentrate more power at the top. The effect of immigration in CA has been a one-party dictatorship with the biggest socio-economic inequalities and PC lunacy, especially when it comes to issues of ‘gender’.

    After all, Alt Right doesn’t believe Asians are criminals or terrorists but opposes Asian immigration too because, again, Too Many Asians alter the national character of America. Also, given that Asians tend to be servile to the Existing Power and obsessed with status, they are likely to become the managerial class for globalism, like Francis Fukuyama, Amy Chua, Nikki Haley, John Yoo, Sarah Jeong, etc. The result will be Jewish globalists lording over Asian upper-middle class as commissars over the white masses.

    Trump’s alarmist rhetoric about Mexican criminals and Muslim terrorists actually appealed more to Normie Conservatives. But then, Trump didn’t start this rhetoric. Hollywood has been making lots of movies featuring Muslims as terrorists. The SICARIO sequel begins with Muslims crossing the US-Mexican border and blowing up US shopping malls. In the 90s, the movie villains were usually South African ‘racists’ or Muslim Terrorists. And who can forget RULES OF ENGAGEMENT that is downright genocidal in its message toward Muslims over there. KILL THEM ALL. Even before 9/11, many white working class kids grew up watching Hollywood movies with evil Muslim villains. So, when they entered the military, they were more than happy to go over there and kill them ‘savages’.
    While some in the Alt Right like to pass around the Muslim Terrorist and Mexican Gang meme, this is much more the feature of Alt Light and God-and-Country Conservatism. The anti-Muslim stuff is actually a way to gain sympathy from Jews(and homos), i.e. Jews and homos(and even feminists) should side with the Right because Liberals don’t care about Muslims who want to wipe Israel off the map, enslave women, and throw homos from roofs. Alt Right cares far less about this line of argument because it cares far less about forging alliance with Jews, homos, and feminists. Alt Right’s position on Israel is ‘none of our business’. Some in the Alt Right cheer for Palestinians just to ‘return the favor’. Also, Alt Right believes that Jewish power and influence in US and EU are so baleful that alliance is near-impossible. And Alt Right thinks feminism is terrible and rejects the homo agenda. It is the Alt Light and ‘cuck’ Right that go for the “Liberals are the true anti-Semites, Homophobes, and misogynists because they don’t condemn Muslims” polemic.

    [MORE]

    Also, even though Alt Rightists are aware of Muslim Terrorism(esp in Europe), most trace the problem between the West and Muslim World to Western invasion of Middle East & North AFrica(that angered and radicalized Muslims) and immigration policy controlled by Jews and globalists(that let in millions of Muslims into the West). So, while the Alt Light and Normie Cons tend to blame Muslims, Alt Right is more likely to blame the People behind the Invade/Invite Strategy that turned the Middle East and North Africa upside down and then ‘welcomed’ all the refugees and other riff-raff(pretending to be ‘refugees’) into the West. While Alt Right has its share of bozos and morons, its overall understanding of foreign policy tends to be more sophisticated than that of the Alt Light and Normie Conservatives who are stuck in ‘Liberals are the real racist’ mentality. Alt Right’s view of foreign affairs is probably closer to that of the Saker or Paul Craig Roberts even though neither is part of Alt Right.

    In Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson, we do see some Alt Right influence on their views of foreign policy… though, to be sure, one could trace their change of views to Paleo-Conservatism as well(of Pat Buchanan and Paul Gottfried) or Libertarianism(of Ron Paul). Both Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter waved the red, white, and blue during the Iraq War. Coulter’s warmongering fever was so out-of-control and hyperbolic — turn them ‘muzzies’ into Christians — that National Review let her go. It was the hope during the Bush II years that, if the American ‘Right’ does something spectacular in the Middle East and remakes the whole region into an oasis in which Israel will especially be safe, the American Jewish power will move over to the GOP. Never let a crisis go to waste, and 9/11 offered an opportunity for GOP Wasps(fast losing power) to make a move to recruit Jewish Power by doing the bidding of Neocons as middlemen power-brokers between GOP wasps and the larger Jewish Community. The idea seemed so tantalizing that even NYT and Liberal Zionist Media came to support the Iraq War based on WMD hoax. (The massive protests against the war probably had more to do with the trepidation that it might indeed be a great success and lend credibility to the GOP-Neocon Right.) But the whole thing blew up spectacularly, and Bush II ended his presidency as one of the worst presidents ever. The economy also collapsed. Still, the fact is the GOP and people like Coulter had tried so very hard to do whatever to win over the Jews. But most Jews went for Obama. Worse, feeling that the GOP as the white party was dead forever, Jewish Liberals(and even Neocons) began to show their true face and spew anti-white vitriol not unlike Tim Wise. The OBAMA CONQUEST Newsweek cover said it all.

    While ‘cuck’-servatives remained timid and servile, figures like Ann Coulter just about had enough. Even though she has always known that most Jews were on the ‘left’, she had no idea how much the great majority of the Jewish community really hated, hated, and hated the white goy majority. The anti-white rhetoric became ever more strident and boastful with sadistic glee at the prospect of White America’s demise. Jews, who’d been demanding that whites respect Jewish identity and support Israel, were gloating not only about the fall of White America but, incredibly, even the Islamo-Africanization of Europe, the ancient homeland of Europeans.

    Though neither Coulter or Carlson is Alt Right, their main concern was demography, not crime or terrorism. Sure, because it’s deemed ‘racist’ to defend the preservation of White America, people like Coulter and Carlson will tend to mention issues pertaining to social/economic costs of immigration, but their main worry is End of White America. They can’t and won’t say it(though Coulter flirts with outright racial consciousness), but it is where their views intersect with the Alt Right. Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson say it has nothing to do with color of the skin and only with values — the problem is not the race of the newcomers but the values they bring with them — , but Alt Right disagrees. Alt Right and Jared Taylor(not quite Alt Right) have an emotional or near-spiritual attachment to White/Western Civilization. Alt Right tends to see Jews as the Other, whereas Taylor wishes for Jews to be partners, but for them, Western Civilization isn’t merely about moral values and monetary value but about genetics and aesthetics: Western culture is an expression of European blood in both spirit and form. So, Western music is an expression of the white soul, and Western art depict the unique beauty of the white race. It’s not just about what’s in the head but what’s in the heart, face, body. This is why Faith Goldy opposes Asian immigration in Canada. Most Asians are not criminals. Many study and work hard and contribute to the Canadian economy. And because most Asians(especially from East Asia) tend to be bland and servile, they readily soak up the latest PC fashions in ‘Western Values’. They assimilate all-too-well to current fads and fashions of the West. But, they are still racially different, and too many of them will permanently alter the European character of Canada.

    Now, some white people don’t care about such things. They either see all peoples as just individuals/economic units OR believe that whites are so uniquely guilty of historical ‘sins’ that their nations deserved to be taken over by non-whites. (As for white elites, they figure their vaunted positions are secure and that newcomers will mainly serve them. Their main identity is ‘elite’ or ‘privilege’, not white. And, their idea of fighting ‘white privilege’ is not surrendering their own privilege but beating up on un-privileged whites as ‘racist’ for not being properly welcoming of mass-immigration to replace the white population and loyally serve the ‘progressive’ white elites.) Anyway, while one can argue with Alt Right ideas, one cannot argue with Alt Right passions. Ideas exist in the mind, passion exists in the heart. It’s like reason is a mind-thing, whereas religion is a faith-thing. Even though Alt Right is essentially a secular movement, it has ‘faith’ and soulful passion for European identity. It’s the same with Zionists, even secular ones. They can argue and debate about ideas and values, but the notion of Israel as a Jewish state is ‘sacred’ to them, a historical covenant. It’s a matter of the heart. It is non-negotiable. It is like a mother to them. Not for debate, not for sale, not for compromise. Israel MUST be a Jewish State to them.

    Now, in some ways, the debacle at Charlottesville wasn’t really unique. There was extreme violence in Berkeley(or was it UCLA?) when Milo was scheduled to speak. The violence was comparable to what happened in Charlottesville. And it took heavy police presence to allow Ben Shapiro — an ardent Zionist enemy of Alt Right — to speak at one of his college events. Even Charles Murray was attacked by a college mob.
    If Charlottesville got more attention, it was because the Alt Right guys were bolder and cockier. Gentlemen like Charles Murray seemed confused and flustered like Mr. MaGoo. Milo’s speech was scrapped. Ann Coulter also canceled her speech soon thereafter. And many college professors self-censor themselves out of fear of the NPC mob. Steven Salaita was fired from U of I for expressing rage about Israel’s attack on Gaza. Norman Finkelstein’s career at Depaul was derailed by Dershowitz and gang. And recently, a Palestinian-American female teacher was fired because she wouldn’t sign an anti-BDS pledge. Now, a worthless idiot like George Hawley, the so-called scholar of the Alt Right, will say all sorts of nasty things about ‘white supremacism’ and ‘racism’ but will not say ANYTHING about Jewish power and its abuses or how homo supremacist activists have destroyed lives and careers all across America. So, what happened to Alt Right guys at Charlottesville was part of a pattern, except that the hammer came down much harder because Alt Right didn’t back down as it burst on the scene. So, the only way to deal with the movement was to smash it like God destroyed the Tower of Babel. Especially because Populist Trump was seen as the bold unapologetic candidate who rode to victory on the Alt Right magic carpet, the Power decided to use Charlottesville as an opportunity to wipe the Alt Right off the political map. So, the Constitutional Rights of free assembly and free speech were denied by the powers-that-be in full collusion with the corrupt media.

    That said, the Unite the Right was a moral disaster as well. Spencer, filled with vanity as edge-lord 007 enfant-terrible hero, allied with some really loathsome characters. Many of us didn’t know then, but we know now. Chris Cantwell the Cantaloupe-Head is a deranged 14/88 clown. And Fat Matt Heimbach turned out to be not only a neo-nazi idiot but a perfect Jerry-Springer-show guest: “I fuc*ed my father-in-law’s wife.” The fact that Spencer allied with such idiots meant his brand of Alt Right, which got the most media attention, was scraping the bottom of the barrel than patiently building a new political and intellectual base. Ramzpaul saw the writing on the wall earlier at Hail-Gate(or Heil-Gate) when Spencer foolishly emboldened some of his minions to give the Hitler Salute. It’s likely that Spencer didn’t foresee the reaction, but it was an embarrassing moment for not only people like Ramzpaul and Jared Taylor but for Donald Trump and Steven Bannon. Being edgy is one thing, Nazi crap is another. The whole point of the Alt Right was to find a new path away from both Neoconservatism and KKK craziness, but Spencer the edge-lord, eager for bad boy notoriety, just couldn’t help himself. Not long after ‘Heil-Gate’, he was speaking seriously with Andrew Anglin. And it now seems his group was operating more in the manner of ANIMAL HOUSE or STRIPES than TAPS. (The misguided boys in TAPS fail, but they did put up a serious resistance.)

    That said, despite the unsavory character of some of the scheduled speakers at the Unite the Right rally, the fact is the fiasco was almost entirely due to the Jewish mayor and black police chief who shut down the event and pushed the UTR attendees into a gang of Antifa goons who were let alone to tear the city apart. So, if Spencer and others had really been smart, they would have done everything to shape the narrative. With cheap video technology, they could have made their own documentary on the subject. But all that opportunity was lost. As the story of Jesus shows, even defeat can be spun into victory. It all depends on who does the storytelling. Kubrick was half-wrong about SCHINDLER’S LIST when he said Holocaust was about failure whereas Spielberg’s movie is about success. True, the Holocaust was a tragic failure for Jews who were killed, but the Holocaust Narrative was a success that ‘sacralized’ Jewish victims while burdening Germans(and other Northern European racial cousins of Germans) with the Burden of Guilt forever. In the end, the story of the event matters more than the event itself.
    But for the most part, Spencer and others did little to shape the post-Charlottesville narrative. ONLY NOW, Spencer the fool is trying to run with the Charlottesville-as-moral-victory narrative. After Charlottesville, most Alt Right people were not deplatformed. It was Daily Stormer and few other sites. Spencer and his cohorts had many months to come up with their own narrative and hammer it home over and over. But they dropped the ball and focused on other matters.

    This is all too bad because if the Alt Right had remained more in the mode of Ramzpaul and Jared Taylor, it could have done so much more. After all, Ramzpaul(who has one foot in edgy politics and the other in Normie culture) and Ann Coulter/Tucker Carlson came to more-or-less same conclusion on the JQ though Coulter and Carlson can’t spell it out. Coulter feels betrayed not only by the Jewish community but by Neocons whom she had loyally served for so many yrs. She feels abused, like a sex slave. She feels that her kind did everything to wave the Israeli flag, vilify the enemies of Israel, and love Jews. Like John McCain, she growled at whatever Jews hated. But in recent yrs, she has stopped barking at Iran, Russia, Syria, Palestinians, and etc.
    Despite all that Coulter & co. had done over the years for Zionism and Jewish Prestige, what did Jewish Power finally give to America? Obama, Homo agenda, and endless push for Diversity to replace whites. Worse, it wasn’t just New York Times and CNN but Neocons and National Review as well. Even Neo-‘conservatives’ blasted Trump and called for white replacement. Coulter came to see Neocons as weasels and came to see most of GOP as spineless ‘paycheck conservatives’ who only do the bidding of oligarchs: Paul Ryan and etc. And that is why she was so invested in Trump, the only candidate who denounced foreign wars, the need for walls, and immigration reform. And he was the only GOP candidate who openly supported European nationalists and bemoaned Merkel’s decision to open the gates.

    So, there was a chance of greater convergence between some in the Conservatism Inc. and the Alt Right. But Spencer, too full of himself, decided to play politics like Mission Impossible. If he really wanted to be bold, he should have written a book on political philosophy than hold quasi-Nazi tiki-torch marches and make common cause with a psychopath like Cantwell and moron like Heimbach. As for guys like Mike Enoch, they have value as ‘shitlords’ targeting PC shibboleths on podcasts; they have no value as leaders. It’s like Howard Stern and Steve Dahl can make it as shockjocks but can’t be taken seriously as anything else. But somehow, Enoch took leadership position. Nazi larping can be ironic in a podcast, not in the streets when crowds gather in earnest to make a political statement. Give a nazi salute in that context, and it’s a political expression, not a joke or prank.

    As for people in Silicon Valley or other super-rich cities, they may not live in Gated Communities, but it’s safe to say that much of the area is like an Extensive Gated Community or Gated City(or Golden Gated City). The houses are not gated like rich homes in South Africa or Venezuela, but there are social and class barriers demarcating the super rich from the very rich from the rich from the middle and the rest. It’s like there is no gate around Hyde Park community in Chicago, but it is among the safest because most professors and students are white or Asian and also because there is super-heavy police presence to suppress black crime. Also, home prices make it impossible for most blacks to live within the community.
    Still, because there are no actual walls or gates to protect the rich from the hordes, it’s true enough that many affluent people may feel that all-is-well in America. Since they are ‘good’ and ‘intelligent’ people who’ve made it, everyone else who didn’t make it must be lazy or stupid. And yet, there is a contradiction in their attitude because, while they dismiss the problems of the white working class and underclass as products of their own failing, they employ PC rhetoric to gush about all those poor immigrants who must be given a chance. But if white losers have no one to blame but themselves, then aren’t non-white losers around the world also responsible for their own problems? Aren’t the brown losers in Mexico and Guatemala merely the ‘Latino’ counterparts of white losers in the US? Apparently not according to elite PC attitudes. While white working class and middle class(continually sinking) that voted for Trump are reviled and ridiculed as ‘populist losers’, the endless hordes of browns who want to break into America are romanticized as ‘dreamers’. Rich whites look down on whites who have less but idealize browns who have less. Instead of trying to boost the livelihoods of whites who have less, they focus on ‘saving’ the browns who want to start anew in America. Now, many rich whites didn’t feel this way in the past, so maybe it has something to do with who controls the media/academia. Or, maybe it’s just the sense among the rich that the poor immigrants are motivated to work harder(more compliant, less complaint) than working class whites who are now either too demanding or even downright degenerate. (The utter vulgarization of the white middle class and working class culture cheapened their moral capital. Tom Joad vs Jim Goad. One is a noble character, a champion of the meek and down-and-out, the other is a real-life punk personality who’s wallowed in depravity all his life. When the image of the working-class becomes Jerry-Springered and Jim-Goaded, it loses moral capital. Jim Goad is an interesting writer and a courageous enemy against PC, but what is he FOR? Freedom to do what? To act and talk like utter shit. Not that the elite image has been so great either, what with their mindless worship of anything homo and tranny. And given the vulgarization of Jewish Culture — Harvey Weinstein and Amy Schumer — , American Image has become sick and demented from top to bottom. And one of the problems of Trump is that he makes an odd hero of the people given his rather sordid life story of never-ending self-indulgence.)

    But then, there was also a contradiction within the Alt Right of Richard Spencer(who pretty much came to own the label after ‘Heil-Gate’). He grabbed it as MY TOY! Given the class split between white elites and white middle class/working class, the most natural priority for the Alt Right would have been to reach out to whites who feel stranded without leadership. This would have called for patient grass-roots activism. But Spencer, a spoiled boy of privilege, has a knee-jerk revulsion of the hoi polloi. His idea of white power is all about white elitism. He is fixated on personal power. His supremacism is more of the Anglo-Imperialist brand of Rudyard Kipling — White Man’s Destiny and Burden — than that of Nazis, but his head is so up in the clouds with dreams of power and glory that he is bored by real problems of the white masses who feel left out. They didn’t read Nietzsche and don’t understand the true philosophy of 007.
    Indeed, Spencer’s real problem with the current elites is not their hyper-elitism or super-privilege per se but that they are not his kind of people. Similarly, his problem with globalist neo-imperialism is not that it is globalist or imperialist but that it is controlled by Jews. His dream is not to end imperialism in favor of nationalism but to practice an even grander imperialism ruled by Anglos as the Faustian Race or something. Because Spencer’s mindset and outlook are so narcissistic and stuck-up, he’s been incapable of shaping the Alt Right into a movement that could actually mean something to masses of whites who feel like a body without a head. So, the burden of Alt Right grassroots fell to someone like Matt Heimbach the dummy whose idea of mass politics is swilling endless cases of beer, wearing a Nazi helmet, and bumbling around with his bubble-butt.

    If the problem of Paleo-Conservatism was it was filled with too many old people, the problem of Alt Right has been its youth. Youth is full of energy and optimism, but it’s also rash and impulsive. So, just like 60s Yippies and Black Panthers wasted their political capital on stupid shit, so did the members of the Alt Right. In a way, the failures of both the New Left and New Right were similar in kind. The New Left, liberated from the ‘stalinism’ of the Old Left, turned to sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. It burned out. (The members of the Left that did gain power tended to be humorless in their long march through the institutions. But did they really win? By the time they were in positions of power, communism/socialism had failed, Democratic Party had gone over to the ultra-rich oligarchs, and military-industrial-complex was stronger than ever. So, all they could do was compromise with the ultra-capitalists and settle for the Homo Agenda. It was just ‘subversive’ enough for radical vanity and sufficiently useful to the Rich Class that had no more use for politics of class struggle.)
    The new movement of the Alt Right, liberated from the organizational strictures of Conservatism Inc or grim humorlessness of White Nationalism 1.0, rushed into action like kids into summer break on the last day of school. It had energy but no organization, discipline, or hierarchy. Just like Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Bill Ayers, and rest of them were not exactly Lenin, Trotsky, or Stalin, the leaders of the Alt Right weren’t exactly the Founding Fathers or even the National Socialists(who were pathological but had remarkable strategic sense). And Spencer, a spoiled rich kid who was showered with affection and all-the-toys from childhood, had this magical Harry-Potter mentality that wishes would turn into reality with the power of his Faustian will.

    First Let me thank you, your work is very effective and designed to increase its effectiveness over time. That you are a liberal and a jew and a 1% etc makes it all the more remarkable because you are in fact helping reactionaries conservatives nazis ethnats etc. Granted many of us were also once 1% liberalish cuckservtivish so theres that. You seem to have the same sort of soft spot for hispanics that i have for jews. Growing up in NYC one learns youre right hispanics are not nearly as dangerous as blacks, and even when they are they are not very big or smart, and yes they have a sort of charm. In a place like NYC you get to know all the races of the world and each has a charm and its downsides, in fact you get your own race reflected back at you in a place like NYC which gives one a certain humility. Wolf wasnt the first or last to portray the Irish in a way we recognixed.

    But regarding hispanics and jews i think we both miss a point.In the case of jews for instance i had to struggle against this red pilling on the JQ as we say,I like jews Im from an arty intellectual NYC family half of our friends are jews sure I grew up in the 60s listening to jews brag at cocktail parties about how they had been in on the early days of western deconstruction, i watched the front lines of the 60 mostly jewish radicals really start to burn down the west and i observed their mostly jewish directed march through the smouldering ruins of our institutions in the 80s and 90s. I was one of those oddball kids that though a long haired rebel in many ways i became a conservative in my teens. So while i certainly understood how deeply the jews were responsible for the march of leftism i never really held it against them, in fact like my whole generation I really had a very difficult time holding anything against a race no matter what they did, we sought explanations, blacks were destroyed by welfare and early southern racism, jews were only being defensive because hitler. The main thing was there was a sense we could afford this sort of bad behavior, after all NYC was one of the only places that had “other ” people. No one really realized what the 64 immigration bill was really doing, city people assumed it was just more of the stuff that had happened since the 1700s and the suburban and rural areas were isolated pre internet so they each thought of themselves as an anomaly the flooding continued for decades before the internet allowed us to compare notes and realize we had bee transformed without our consent.

    [MORE]

    It doesnt really matter how jews came to own half the wealth and power with only 2% of the population, its simply unacceptable that they have it, its unacceptable that jews are now running the west to a large extent. The west is the europeans land and should be run for the preservation of our own culture and for the betterment of our own people. the problematic jews are actually about half “white” and since white is a range its fair to say jews are probably as white as say greeks and bulgarians compare to icelandic. so the problem isnt actually genetic particularly since theres so few.Culturally contra my ethnat friends theres some truth to this judeo christian cultural meme, jews have lived among europeans on nd off so long they do share a culture have contributed to and absorbed from us, so culturally we could say jews are half european.And yet its still such a problem for a couple thousand years neither of us can stop worrying about it and although i couldnt be redpilled on the jq by all the reactionaries and ethnats the process of trying to refute them led me to a dozen or two jews like yourself who ended up making me realize the jq is a real problem, of course this is exacerbated by the fact that my own peoples lands are in their death throes and its because of what jews have done whatever the reason.

    One of those things is the hispanic invasion youre so comfortable with.Im not convinced they are quite so non violent as you ionsist having had dozens of attacks by hispanics in NYC before i hit puberty and began to tower over them, and because i only need to look at the murder capitals of the world to note many are hispanic.But its true they are still somewhat manageable,they are a docile people, but like the jews thats all besides the point its simply not acceptable that western land particularly the western land that rules all the world should become a banana democracy. It not simply that as richwine has shown five generations later they are still mostly on the dole, that their average IQ is woefully inadequate for the world we are creating, that their crime rate is in fact much higher than whites. Its back to the fact that our nations are supposed to be for us and we have no where else to go and so will go the way of the wooly mammoth if they are not preserved. you want to compare white trash crime rates to hispanics, but what if the resources the jews have poured into non whites over the past 75 years had instead been poured into the left side of the white distribution and non whites kept out as the white liberals intended before being jewed? what if white wages were allowed to rise instead of massive third world pressure.by the 60s good whites were doing marvels with the left half of the whites then jews redirected leftists to nonwhites and imported hundreds of millions ore and the results are abysmal, worse this has destroyed the progress on the poor whites.

    Of course like obama care the plan by jews was to do this because it cant be undone except by means too terrible to contemplate. Unfortunately I think this house of cards will come down anyway. It simply cant continue its predicated on massive debt expanding forever while greater and greater percentage of elite rulers become non whites and whites become increasingly demonized while expected to pay for it all, whites may not survive the century but neither will the west, and as goes the west so goes the human race.

    There is I think one way out, jews must become white. they must immediately put all the effort they have put into deconstructing the european project into building white ethno states and in the process erase themselves as culturally and genetically distinct they must help the nazis for lack of a better word they must encourage all white ethnicities to become chauvinist ans to transition peacefully to ethno states while engineering ways to erase jews from being able to identify themselves by methods such as in vitro fertilization, name changes, legal prohibitions of jews from certain occupations encouraging dilution of jewish genetics in euro nations, and the de jewification of our culture, by which we mean this constant culture of criticism and degenerate art, also christianity must go its a cuck religion

    its not that hispanics wouldn’t have been ok in very small numbers its that we have a situation where whites are losing our homelands and we can not survive without them, perhaps jews can survive always in exile whites are not jews we can not we need a nation to preserve a culture and a culture to preserve our people. If jews do not use their power to unwind their deconstruction project then theres going to be collapse and war and the hispanics will flee and the blacks will insist on being killed and jews will be scapegoated when we try and figure out why this terrible collapse and war happened and frankly they will deserve it because while cucks need hanging and good white liberals were misguided without the jews mischief it would never have gotten morbid

  14. My feeling is that while there are lots of elites who are actually hostile to Whites and proles, most are naïve and well meaning. As Ron points out, for a lot of these people, their own contact with Africans, Asians, Hispanics and Moslems is with educated and sophisticated people who bring exotic food and culture.

    What they don’t see, and can’t possibly imagine because they don’t feel it themselves, is that often even among this elite is a lot of rage and envy directed at Whites and western culture. I travel among the same circle of people and under the veneer of civility lies an intense hostility and sense of rivalry towards dominant and/or competing groups.

    And what everyone else is stuck with is not the educated elite but the lower class of that foreign group. It’s one thing to have a few nice Indian restaurants in town, quite another to have an entirely (formerly White) Bangladeshi neighbourhood filled with ignorant, hyper religious idiots who see the host nation, and its people, as something to be exploited and shat upon.

  17. I’ve lived in Palo Alto, and it is a bubble. People living in bubbles generally can’t see outside them. No longer having employment that can sustain living in the bubble, I had to retreat to far away. My perspective is considerably different, although not alt-right. The difference is that the folks in the bubble have enormous political influence due to the control of communications technology and their vast wealth, as well as considerable hubris about their right to control discourse. There’s a sense among them that an enlightened oligarchy of meritocracy sanctioned by the success of wealth is superior to a populist rabble, that is, democracy. Or if there is a belief in democracy, it is that their own enclave, like the wider American belief in the right to rule the globe from its own democracy, has veto rights over any wider populism of “deplorables” that doesn’t share their own consensus.

    There’s no answer to this, except to create alternatives to what these elites control. It might take some sort of antitrust activity to prevent great wealth pre-empting viable alternatives.

  18. A key thing to note, is that the ‘alt-right’ etc does not really help itself all that much by pulling punches and ‘being moderate’

    In part because the Powers That Be intentionally promote extremist crazy-sounding versions of some perspectives, to set up ‘straw men’, a technique the intel agency propagandists call ‘poisoning the well’

    For example, look at some of the internet-popular alternative websites which generate a huuge amount of revenues – Jeff Rense, David Icke, Veterans Today … all 3 websites have troves of valuable, often unique articles, revealing genuine truth about all sorts of scandals and crimes

    And on all 3 sites, these articles are right next to pieces about space aliens from other planets amongst us, shape-shifting lizards etc

    This is by design and on purpose … CIA-Google promotes such sites, specifically for this reason … Want info on Scandal X? Well at top of search is that scandal info, on a site right next to space-alien lore … so the true stuff is ‘self-discredited’

    Gordon Duff of Veterans Today – chuckling as he calls himself a ‘self-hating Jew’ – has flipped this idea in reverse, admitting in a radio interview that some 30% of what is on his site is totally not true … he says that, this is what allows him to print the true material, without being murdered, by the US gov he still claims to serve in a few capacities

    It is sometimes suggested that the reason Andrew Anglin’s ‘neon-Nazi’ Daily Stormer gets so much free media – helping it to recover to 4 million viewers a month despite all the rolling censoring shutdowns – is precisely because of its role as being an ‘extreme’ version of alt-right themes, a perpetual ‘straw man’ … Ironically, Anglin’s main partner, site IT whiz Andrew Auernheimer aka Weev, was said by his mom to be Jewish, tho Weev says this is ‘Elizabeth Warren tier’

    Jewish Harvard Law prof & internet deception maven Cass Sunstein, openly advocates CIA-run web-trolling, in partnership with CIA-Google controlling internet search … and also the CIA’s Wikipedia, run by ex-pornographer and personal friend of Israeli Presidents, Jimmy Wales … Google and Wiki work to see to it that ‘reasonable’ websites are kept in the shade if not toe-ing the party line

    Ron Unz is to be congratulated for getting Unz to where it is today … but the Powers That Be do recognise that getting the rebel intellectuals corralled, and being able to read and share a little, is useful for the moment

    The issue is what to do about it.

    It’s a really difficult question, but probably any positive change is going to start locally, and deal with individuals. When US society starts to sort itself out (organize itself at county level?) it can embark on creating ground-up political systems that serve the public rather than the plutocracy.

    It’s still a complicated procedure. In the military, when dealing with hopeless disintegrating units, at least they have a chain of command and a mission. An effective leader can impose discipline, starting with a few basic things like “wear your helmet”, “clean and carry your rifle at all times”, “carry your ammunition right “etc. and gradually build up from there.

    Under a democracy (especially the US variety) it’s a lot more difficult. Democracy is a one way street. When it works correctly it’s fine, but it’s open to the special interest corruption of representatives, and the fatal laziness of the public. When it fails (as the US variant more or less has) it can’t be reconstructed at the national level – since Special Interests have an entirely different mission (feed themselves), and use their MSM and the administration power to form a set of interlocking plates to protect themselves and keep out outsiders.

    The possibilities I see are 1) a local, low level political movement, as far away from Washington as possible, taking back local affairs (and taxation) i.e. a US Federation, or 2) a military coup run by US nationalists that shuts down New York, DC and Hollywood or 3) a shooting civil war or 4) a world (nuclear) war.

    1) Would clearly be preferable, but who would provide the leadership? And while they organize, can they simultaneously face off Washington? What kind of local organization would shake individual Americans out of their stupor and get them to be politically active and change their lives?

    2) Unlikely, since the top military are thoroughly vetted and integrated into the Empire. Also, should it happen, the US would receive a new and unpredictable dictatorial elite for Special Interests to get to work on.

    3) Quite possible since the US is loaded with firearms, and the armed forces would probably show split loyalties (be reluctant to destroy American cities). At the end of it, the US would lie in ruins.

    4) More likely than it appears since the US is being highly provocative towards Russia, and backing them into a corner with regard to nuclear treaties, placement of short range nuclear weapons etc. (now also starting with China). This wouldn’t take more than a few days and would be TEOWAKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) given the power of modern nuclear weapons. The US could end up a depopulated and irrelevant wasteland.

    Of course there is still the last (and most likely), “do nothing” option, whereby the US continues its slide into a Zio-Glob dictatorship of the traditional kind with a controlled population, censorship, secret police, detention camps, across the board SJW indoctrination, media propaganda and an elite Nomenklatura.

It’s a lot like Vox Day’s provocative inclusion of the notorious “Fourteen Words” in the Alt-Right manifesto — principled, but the wrong hill to die on, in my opinion. I’m OK with Ron providing denialist source material, but I’d recommend balancing it out with marginalized works on other Holocausts, such as the Armenian genocide and the Holodomor. The radical Zionists hate sharing their victim card almost as much as they hate having it denied.

Is it possible that those in Silicon Valley are insulated from the downsides of unbridled immigration since the illegals cannot afford to live in their neighborhoods? One thing you did not mention is the fact that the Hispanic demographic change has turned California into a one party state. The long term consequences of the Democrats and public Unions having complete political hegemony are not good and anyone who dismisses the public pension fiasco that is unfolding in California is whistling past the graveyard. I am a European origin Hispanic immigrant (Cuban) and I see the rising tide of immigration as the end of the Golden Age of the USA. Increased immigration will lead to a polyglot society where people vote according to ethnic lines and the spoils are given out accordingly. If you are a white male your future in corporate America is not bright. You have ignored the role that Jewish intelligentsia played in this. The 1965 Immigration Act was orchestrated by Jews (Emmanuel Cellar, Jacob Javitts, Norbert Schlei) because Jews feel more comfortable in a polyglot society and have a certain antipathy to white Christians.

    (1) This is a strawman. No one has constructed an entire case on the assertion that ‘Hispanic’ crime rates are x% higher than non-Hispanic crime rates (anyway, they are certainly higher than a “White, Vermont” baseline ideal to which the USA was once not far off).

    (2) There are many good ‘Hispanics’ just as there are many good Blacks, but in population terms they are a liability to a (post-)industrial White, Northwest-European-derived society. Our society becomes racially incoherent, culturally Latin Americanized.

    (3) The term we should be using is “Mestizos,” which may never catch on. A population with a substantial share of Amerindian ancestry will be a liability; true, non-euphemistic ‘White Hispanics’ much less so. The problem with the latter is they “go Vicente Fox” and become vectors of the Mestizo colonial enterprise in the USA.

    (4) Does anyone actually want a scenario by which there are more K-to-12-age Mestizos resident in the USA than White ethnic-core Americans (Northwest European), on target for circa the 2040s? Even if their crime rates were half those of the “White, Vermont baseline”?

    I was alt-right before there was an alt-right. Basically the alt-right was created by less-crazy whites, like myself, entering the WN around the time (before and after) I came onto the scene in 2002-3 (I don’t want to try to date it more precisely because the fact is, I just don’t know). We brought in a less antisocial sensibility, more tech savvy, etc. And we were fighting constantly with the “old school” “purist” “hard core” types about optics, purity-spiraling, subculture (LARPing) vs. true dissident politics, etc. And we largely won.

    But, and this is a big but, instead of WN 2.0 replacing WN 1.0, there was a synthesis that resulted in the Alt-right; WN 3.0, if you will. Basically, instead of deleting the hard, psycho edge of WN 1.0, the alt-right played it for laughs/shitpoasting. I have to admit that it has proven much more successful with the youth than the drier kind of thoughtful WNism that I was advocating back then.

    And that’s the problem I have with Ron’s basic “you people sound like psychos” message; shitpoasting has proven very successful. Rebellion sells. WNism has grown dramatically since I joined right after 9/11. I’ve always been an advocate of multiple styles, so I’m certainly not saying the shitpoasting style is the One True Way. I’m sure there’s an optimum style for reaching the Silicon Valley intelligentsia. But shitpoasting has proven quite successful so far. It isn’t going anywhere.

It’s a place to quickly tweet/shitpoast your disatisfaction with globo-homo-gayplex and signal to the Masters of the Universe that they have a serious and growing problem to deal with.

    Umm, for everyone who understands Ron as saying its merely a question of ‘rhetoric’, what he is actually saying is that it is a question of facts – and the alt right is not in possession of them on certain major issues that are directly perceivable by people in Silicon Valley.

    The alt right doesn’t need to pull its punches – it needs to get its facts straight.

  45. As usual, Mr. Unz, an insightful analysis. I’d just add one thing. The point you make about Silicon Valley applies generally to any area where the USA’s better off and more powerful citizens live, e.g., the so called new class and all other upper-middle class people. These folks are completely insulated from the usual reality of living in areas that are not overwhelmingly White. Any non-White, non native-born folks in their vicinity are either exceptionally high-functioning and functional or “the help”. People in these upper-middle and upper class enclaves are clueless and want to remain so. By the time they catch on it will be too late. Awareness of this situation fuels the desperation of the alt-right to get its message across. Unfortunately that desperation leads to the strategic and tactical errors that you discuss.

  46. Mr. Unz is a grouper swimming with sharks. He thinks “Hey, we are all fish, aren’t we? Can’t we all just get along? Yuo sardines (alt-right types) just need to be a little less stinky. Then these other fish will get along with you.” Maybe he is right. More likely is that he is nice, smart, and clueless. He simply does not see what is going on. Like way too many well-meaning types. If he is wrong on the National Question (as defined by Peter Brimelo), as I am pretty sure he is, he and his children will find out the hard way, and too late.

    with regard to the Han Race…

  49. Hi Ron. Well said. Quite reasonable. You are basically correct on all points. But wait.

    Since ‘racism’ (expressing a racial preference in America when white) can bring about personal destruction–and just the allegation of ‘racism’ (like the allegation of ‘antisemitism’) is now used as a political weapon– a full, broader and more honest examination the impact of ‘illegal immigration’ is sorely needed. Yet it’s not there.

    Race, intelligence, class, physical appearance, temperment, drive, and personality do matter. Differences endure.

    The black experience in America tells us so.

    Diversity is not our strength. Commonality is our strength.

    Yet the ‘diversity-is-our-strength’ myth endures. And not by accident. This propaganda is a form of subterfuge.

    With that in mind, there is no good reason that the US should tolerate the unlawful entry of millions of Third World underachievers into our prosperous and orderly civilization. This is common sense talking. Wonderful ‘diversity’ is dividing our nation, not unifying it.

    This is the reasonable conclusion of many in the Alt-right. But they are denied a voice because these sentiments are declared ‘racist’.

    The resent-driven Left (with plenty of help from the ‘Hispanic community’ and our MSM) also refuses to acknowledge the economic and cultural downside (affecting millions of white Americans) that countless Spanish-speaking, MesoAmericans create by sneaking into the US and establishing poor, welfare-dependent enclaves that vote as ethnic blocks.

    There’s also the measurable political loss that occurs when whites become a minority inside their own country. These facts should require no explanation. But they do in the face of constant propaganda that surrounds the ‘undocumented immigrant’ question.

    We are at a tipping point. Why should white Americans continue along this path?

    Besides, the people of Mexico and Honduras and Guatemala already have their own countries. If we’re all ‘equal’ then shouldn’t these descendents of the Aztec and Mayan remain where they are and build up their own civilizations?

    Of course they should. This is common sense talking.

    Ironically, though ‘white advocacy’ in America has become taboo, it is needed more than ever.

    The opposition is uniting and organizing. The political heat is rising. But whites are paralyzed by accusations of ‘racism’ and ‘white supremacy’. Even Trump must adjust his rhetoric accordingly.

    At the same time, many ‘minorities’ are allowed to express racial solidarity and work openly to advance their ethno-racial interests.

    These toxic, politically-correct double-standard undermine the interests of millions of everyday Americans whose ancestors came from Europe and who settled and built this enviable civilization.

    But today, countless white Americans are being displaced by foreign nationals. And court-approved ‘affirmative action’ is making the problem worse. Far worse.

    Let the declaration be made:

    White continuity matters.

    White kinship matters.

    White interests matter.

    Acknowledging this is not evil. Acknowledging this is not ‘racist’. It is a fact of nature and humankind.

    Yet the common, collective interests of white Americans are being subverted by elites in our media, our government, throughout our courts, and within our universities. This is treason in slow motion.

    It is the inability of white Americans to openly discuss (and advocate for) white interests that drives many members of the Alt-right to resort to hyperbole concerning ‘immigrant crime’. On this point you are absolutely correct, Ron.

    Whites are nevertheless in a box, especially those on the lower socio-economic spectrum. Their voice is being thwarted.

    After all, would the Japanese allow a racial transformation inside Japan to occur that is similar to what’s happening inside America?

    No. It would be suicidal.

    Would the Chinese in China?

    Never.

    Or the Jews in Israel?

    Of course not. So why should we?

    It is America’s new, adversarial establishment that is primarily to blame for this. Kevin MacDonald refers to them as ‘hostile elites’.

    Unfortunately, connecting the dots on this subject makes one a ‘white supremacist’ to our media gatekeepers. And it is they who control the megaphone and manage ‘mainstream’ political discourse. They tell us who the bad guys are. It’s us!

    Their politically-correct smears gives antifa thugs license to attack.

    After that, the police stand down.

    We saw this happen in Charlottesville.

    Lastly, the MSM prevaricates and distorts the events and the subsequent narrative. They win the propaganda war.

    Fact: America is a European-derived civilization. We want to keep it for our children and and our posterity. This goal is normal and natural; except that it’s expression is no longer tolerated.

    This is tyranny.

    1) Would clearly be preferable, but who would provide the leadership?

    I have a vague memory that there were 2 or 3 guys in the days before Charlottesville who said it was a bad set up and they pulled out. Does anybody else remember that? It would not be a bad minimum qualification for such a role. The converse might also be useful. Anybody who was foolish enough to show up to Charlottesville is out.

  51. Racism is a small factor. The anger is against mass immigration. If millions of poor, white, Ukrainians could flood into the US, the alt-right (aka working class Americans) would hate that too. Corporate American loves cheap, desperate labor that mass immigration provides. It hates higher minimum wages, so even in high-cost “liberal” California it will finally crawl up to just $12 in 2019, far below the inflation adjusted rate in the 1970s.

    This is not enough for a full-time worker to afford a studio apartment in most of the state. High wage people can’t afford homes because prices are outrageous driven up by mass legal and illegal immigration. Low wage immigrants pack two or more families into a home to survive, but his overwhelms schools and parking and city services. Middle class workers cannot afford healthcare unless the employer pays most, unless they are poor and get free Medicaid, that is provided to poor legal immigrants too. Immigrants legally bring over elderly parents who are dumped on Medicare and Medicaid and corporate America profits. Liberal California doesn’t give a damn, because this one party state controlled by the rich just selected a former lobbyist as head of the state assembly.

    Expressways are packed and homelessness grows. Residents of all races are angered at this population explosion but are told to shut up because they are racists! The problem is so bad that new immigrants openly call for abolishing ICE, a code word for open borders. Meanwhile, when hoards of immigrants march north to crash through the border because they think it’s their right, only President Trump tries to stop them, so he is called a racist. Native Americans (of all races) are angry, but if they express anger at this invasion, Corporate America deems them racist and bans their websites. Americans who think US citizens deserve priority over foreigners are deemed nationalists, and if they hold rallies, billionaire funded Nazi brown shirts dressed in black attack them while local police are instructed to stand down.

    The chaos will worse when California state income tax receipts are tallied in April. The state gets over one-third its money by taxing high-income workers up to 13%, and with the stock market down that tax revenue will fall sharply just like in 2009. Citizens suggest that removing a millions foreigners here on work visas, and a couple million illegals will help by reducing traffic, housing costs, education costs, social services costs, and boost wages. This logic is undeniable, so corporate media responds that such talk is — RACIST!

    @Johnny Rottenborough

    Would you go further and argue that the entire United States would be ‘perfectly fine’ with whites at 30 per cent, bearing in mind that most of the remaining 70 per cent would hail from Third World countries which fall some way short of ‘perfectly fine’?

    Well, it all depends. Since California’s current population is around 40 million and probably not much above 30% white European these days, I’d say it constitutes a pretty reasonable test-case.

    Now I was born in CA and have lived here nearly all of my life, so I think I have a pretty solid sense of things. I’d strongly argue that over the last fifty years some things have gotten better and some things have gotten worse, in complicated ways.

    I’d say that most of the things that have gotten better have been due to broader trends such as technological advances, with computers and the Internet being among the most important. Obviously, those same things have gotten better everywhere else in the US and the entire world. Another positive development has been the elimination of the smog that had been such a huge problem in the LA of the 1960s. Health care has gotten better for the same reason, but also much more ridiculously expensive, so it’s a mixed bag, the same as everywhere else in the US.

    But if we’re looking as changes/trends that are different in CA than in the rest of the US, I’d say that most things have gotten worse, especially quality of life. Traffic is certainly much worse and housing is ridiculously expensive, with the former problem substantially due to the latter, as a large fraction of the state’s population has been pushed out into more distant and less desirable areas to live. These are universally recognized as two of the state’s biggest problems, and extreme housing costs have also led to very high (adjusted) poverty rates, another huge problem. All of this is pretty much what you’d expect to happen as the CA population doubled from 20M to 40M on the same land area. Some of these problems are especially severe in the Silicon Valley areas.

    For example, here’s a recent front-page SJ Mercury News story about a local immigrant family on the edge of homelessness because they can barely afford their rent of $1,900/month for a tiny apartment in one of the worst areas. Having only $1,900 for monthly rent would hardly be a problem almost anywhere else in America:

    https://game-leaks.com/shadow-of-homelessness-hangs-over-bay-area-students/

    Now immigration has obviously been a very large factor behind the doubling of the CA population, and since the latter has caused such a considerable decline in quality of life, it’s perfectly reasonable to blame immigration for many of those problems. Basically, if you pack too many people inside a nice bus, it gets to be a serious problem.

    But I just don’t see any evidence that the particular non-white racial skew of all those immigrants has been a major problem, at least over the last 15-20 years.

    Here’s an absolutely crucial point that summarizes much of my position on that issue. During the late 1960s/early 1970s, California was about 80% white European and these days it’s down to little more than 30%. Yet the degree of racially-tinged political conflict or violence back then was ***MASSIVELY*** greater than today. Indeed, I’d put it pretty close to zero in recent years. In fact, I’d say that the degree of racial/ethnic friction in 30% white CA might even be less than it was between Irish and Italians living in the Boston area 50-odd years ago.

    So one thing that has *enormously* improved in CA over the last couple of generations has been the almost total disappearance of the sharp racial conflict that used to be such a major problem here. That’s simply a fact and you’d have a very hard time persuading sensible people who grew up here otherwise. (Pretty much the same is true for the huge decline in crime rates across most of the state.)

    Now I’d certainly agree that US immigration has been much too high in the last decade or two and should be substantially reduced, which would help alleviate all sorts of important problems.

    But based on the major California example, arguing for such reduction on racial grounds seems about the weakest possible argument to make. Since that’s pretty obviously the underlying concern propelling so much of the agitated anti-immigration activists, perhaps that fact helps explain why they’ve had such total lack of success for decades.

    Also, given that over the last decade illegal immigration has been such a tiny sliver of total immigration (which is the real problem), Trump and the Republicans ranting about illegal immigrant being “killers and rapists” just sounds totally nutty to anyone sensible living in California.

    In 2018, the CA electorate was still 63% white, but the Trump/Republican immigration arguments didn’t do very well here. The Republicans lost half their remaining Congressional seats and are now down to just 7(!) out of 55, while the Democrats gained 3/4ths(!) majorities in both houses of the State Legislature. So the views of the top Silicon Valley people aren’t really all that totally different from the views of average CA whites.

    Suppose someone on the Internet was arguing that heavy immigration was causing all sorts of problems and should be reduced. Lots of people might say “Hmmm… Why do you think so?” But if the answer came back “Because lots of immigrants are actually werewolves and vampires!!!” I really doubt the fellow would have much success…

    Mestizo countries are probably the most violent and crime-ridden hellholes on the planet. Doubt you or Ron Unz would relish moving to live with the hoi polloi in Rio de Janeiro. You know what would be great? If the Fed gov was instead used a weapon against your type to settle a cross-section of Somalians in government-funded housing in your areas. See how well that goes for you.

    That’s the thing, though. Ensconced in a bubble of the Silicon Shtetl, you don’t need to see nor care about any of this. You still have enough wealth to pretend things are great by paying a premium to not live near the overwhelming majority of these non-Europeans and hey, maybe even some of the blacks and browns you live around are the talented 0.1% so aren’t misery to be around. Great for you. The reality of course is a lot different for the white masses. Ron Unz lives in a highly segregated area where alien elites (mostly east Asian and Brahmin Indians) still tolerate whites but will move to get rid of them and give nepotistic gigs to Sundar Pichai’s retarded cousin Pajeet who can’t stop asking to show bobs and vegana as soon as possible, if it’s not already happening.

    When whites are an absolute minority, we already know what we have to look forward to by looking at both South Africa today and what’s happening in our countries now. Increasing violence against us, more gradual dispossession, more anti-white race laws and policies, intensifying affirmative action, quotas, set-asides that use Orwellian terminology like “legacy majority” or “majority-minority” “race-conscious admissions) and whatever else they come up with to claim this state of affairs MUST continue indefinitely until the last white man has been murdered or made by the government deciding the winners and losers into an invisible loser unable to attract his own group’s women and then there are no more actual whites left, just as the jew writer Eric Kaufmann stated, a bunch of brown people who claim to be white and do a We Wuz The Founding Fathers, We Wuz Englishmen etc. mass of le 56% faces who “identify” with the people who actually created the now-decayed husk of a civilization.

    Worse is to come down the pipe, though. The various forms of redistribution from white to non-white can’t continue apace indefinitely. So eventually those somewhat pacified Mestizos you think are so peaceful won’t be getting as much free stuff to keep them in these better-than-where-they-came-from conditions and then it’ll be just like any other central or south American shithole, except that the whites forced to live near them by the government deciding the winners and losers in life won’t even be able to raise a finger in self-defense, and will be constantly chased down by government policies to forcibly “diversify” everywhere we live.

    I mean look at what’s happening now, lawfare-instituted struggle sessions in the courtroom because someone pointed out that this banana-in-a-noose thing was a hoax.

    Think things like this will get better or worse when we have less demographic power and worse than the no political representation we have now? The anti-white policies and rhetoric have been intensifying as we are ethnically cleansed, NOT softening. We have no reason to believe it will and if history is a barometer, every reason to believe it will reach violent genocide levels.

    In any case EVEN if–and we know this isn’t true, but for the sake of argument–even if these people were all wonderful and it wasn’t just wealth transfer from us to them and dispossession into racial genocide, what do we get out of this? Even if they were 100% the same as us and everything carried on, except without us, why is ethnic cleansing a moral good and what do we even get out of this? We know they aren’t equal to us in ability and that things won’t carry on, obviously, but no one can explain how we and our descendants somehow benefit from any of this. Did we and our ancestors give our blood, sweat and tears and toil away to hand it away to ungrateful foreigners who hate our guts, want us dead and to take our stuff? Probably not.

    Racism is a small factor.

    I would say it was more a question of power. Multiethnic societies can get along fine if the question of political power is resolved.

    For example, parts of Spain have societies that are 50% comprised of foreigners (North Africans, South Americans, British, French, Belgians, Scandinavians, Bulgarians, Rumanians, Russians etc.) who are working, and classed as “long-term foreign residents”. They pay taxes, get healthcare and schooling and have all rights apart from a passport and the right to vote. They live in more or less separate communities with little integration, but get along OK with few problems.

    The key point seems to be that they don’t have political power (nationality or the vote) and don’t care about it, if they can work and send money back to their respective countries + get the schooling and healthcare. They accept that Spain is Spanish.

    What friction there is, comes from wage competition (pushing wages down), but Spanish employers are the first to contract cheap immigrant labour (in for example in catering and construction), and they control the politics.

    If Silicon Valley types think (((Tim Wise))), (((Rachel Maddow))), Morning Joe, and Don Lemon are the voices of truth and sanity then there’s little we can do to change their minds. Oriental Sarah Jeong said horrible things about white people yet she still has her Twitter account.

    In some ways Ron’s comments are a justication of Silicon Valley’s war against right of center political dissent with pro-white overtones, or wrong thinking. This is very disappointing.

    That we are witnessing an unprecedented intolerance for certain political creeds and viewpoints by the tech monopolies, usually under Jewish pressure, and tacitly supported by the federal government by their inaction and silence is the real issue.

    The other issue is that we are two nations, perhaps more, and we can’t relate to each other or don’t talk each other’s language anymore. Silicon Valley looks at mostly white, flyover America not as fellow Americans, but as the great unwashed and a serious problem to be dealt with.

    Finally, which causes? Take Holocaust Denial. I happen to be convinced that the Holocaust happened substantially as advertised, but others aren’t.

    Well, speaking for myself, they’re free to argue their case. They can knock themselves out. As far as I’m concerned, it’s like faith in Jesus, or belief in Kennedy assassination plots, or any one of a dozen such convictions I just don’t share. Have at it, though. It’s like golf. Of no interest to me, but don’t let me spoil your fun.

    Lol, this is a really bad comparison. Holocaust skepticism isn’t a belief – it’s the lack thereof. Santa Claus doesn’t exist until you disprove his existence; it’s the other way around. You’re actually the one with the faith-based belief.

    The Shoah goes in the “faith in Jesus” and “belief in Kennedy assassination plot” column, not in the column with skepticism and agnosticism. You’ve got witch-hunters in your camp, sharing your beliefs, lol. The Shoah correlates even more closely with religion when you consider how it’s enforced by law throughout Europe, the way Christianity was, centuries ago, or the way Islam is in many places today.

    What you’ve done in grouping agnosticism with Shoah-belief is to create status-quo and non-status-quo columns, or conformist and non-conformist columns, and then label them “rational” and “irrational,” which is just really shit-tier, for reasons that I hope are now obvious.

    The problem I see is that in plugging Holocaust denial in particular, one immediately marginalizes both oneself and anyone one is associated with. Unz Review can have twelve interesting ideas that might actually gain traction with the casual visitor — but if Holocaust Denial is at the top of the page, he’ll move hastily on.

    It’s the sort of high-risk, high-reward strategy that a minority of Jews have been pursuing for centuries, if not eons. If the roles were reversed, there’d be a vocal minority of Jews deconstructing the goyische Shoah narrative. Jews have never been as worried about being marginalized as they are about delineating the margins.

    … they are the bosses at the top, such as the Saudis who own twitter…

    Not quite.

    Excerpt from This Saudi prince now owns more of Twitter than Jack Dorsey does:

    [MORE]

    A Saudi prince has increased his holdings in Twitter, making him the company’s second largest shareholder.

    Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Alsaud, who in 2011 invested $300 million in the social network, now owns 34.9 million shares of Twitter’s common stock, according to a new regulatory filing (pdf).

    At nearly 5.2%, his stake in the company is now larger than that of Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s co-founder and newly re-minted CEO, whose 21.86 million shares give him 3.2% of the company, according to FactSet. (The prince previously had a stake of roughly 3%.)

    Twitter co-founder Ev Williams remains the company’s largest shareholder, with 46.56 million shares for a 6.9% stake.

    The investment might seem like a major stamp of approval for Dorsey, who was named Twitter’s permanent CEO on Oct. 5 and is tasked with turning around the company. (The prince’s updated holdings are as of Oct. 6.) But during Twitter’s CEO search, the billionaire prince was vocal about his opinion that Twitter needed a new CEO—i.e. someone other than Dorsey, who at the time was in the role on an interim basis.

    Alwaleed, who serves as majority owner and chairman of the Kingdom Holding Company, is also a significant investor in News Corp, Citigroup, and the Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

  66. I have some minor quibbles with Mr. Unz’s piece (there are indeed many Mexicans in West Virginia and their arrival coincides with the fentanyl epidemic according to a WVA woman I know) but my main point is that anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, and even anti-black rhetoric is a “sublimation” of resentment of changes in society that are mostly the doing of Jews. Since it is too dangerous to criticize Jews there is a tendency to blame Muslims or other less powerful minorities e.g. only an already marginal commentator will raise the issue of a Jew complaining about a Christmas display but it’s acceptable to make a fuss about the rare Muslim who complains. After this habit gets ingrained people start to think that it really IS Muslims or Hindus who are responsible for ending the Christmas concert or banning CS Lewis books when it’s nearly always Jews.

    The reason why Silicon Valley does what is does has nothing to do with some analysis of what they believe are lies and facts. It has more to do with their placating their workforce which is predominantly college brainwashed and woke.

    Ron Unz—Thank you very much indeed for replying. I am English and have lived in England nearly all my life. I spent a few days in America many moons ago, visiting Seattle and Oregon, so I have no personal knowledge of present-day America.

    I was struck by the reduction you mention in interracial violence, which has gone hand-in-hand with a dramatic fall in the white population. In England, to the best of my knowledge, whites have always simply fled as non-whites have moved in, skipping the violent phase. What will happen when the English have nowhere left to flee to, time will tell.

    From the point of view of interracial violence, then, things in California and beyond are perfectly fine. I suppose what I was really hinting at, though, are the long-term prospects for America remaining perfectly fine when it becomes a majority Third World territory, given that, to date, only Europeans have been able to build the European civilizations which the rest of the world finds so attractive. Will America become Mexico with nukes?

  73. I will make a second criticism of Mr. Unz’s piece: Alt Right websites or youtube videos do display lots of “over the top” comments but when analyzing the significance of this one needs to remember the 1960s (perhaps Mr. Unz is too young.) In the late 60s it was very common for young people to join or defend explicitly Communist parties, call police “pigs”, refer to government officials and establishment commentators as “Fascist pigs”, and speak openly about the need for violent revolution in the United States. Some popular chants of the day included “Off the pigs” (“off” = “kill”), “2 4 6 8 organize and smash the state”, “the only direction is insurrection, the only solution is revolution”, “Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh, Dare to struggle, dare to win!” and various sayings of Mao Zedong (e.g. “power grows out of the barrel of a gun”) and Che Guevara. Being outrageous/ trolling is a declaration of defiance that, according to Saul Alinsky, is more important and effective than reasoned argument. What you see on Alt Right websites doesn’t always brand the author as a “lunatic” but merely a rebel, intent on breaking taboos and outraging the establishmentarian. What is striking is how much self-censorship is required from the rightists compared to what their parents’ generation got away with. It shouldn’t take great subtlety to see this, which undermines the claim that Silicon Valley executives are reacting naturally and reasonably to what they see. Having said that, I admit that a lot of people on the Alt Right are nuts or worse, as were a lot of sixties radicals.

    Per Hispanic crime rates, we are told people are fleeing Honduras because of high-crime rates. The US State Department warns:

    “Since 2010, Honduras has had one of the highest murder rates in the world. Credit card skimming is common. Many people report receiving threatening phone calls or extortion attempts, especially during Christmas and Easter holidays. Gangs are not reluctant to use violence and specialize in murder-for-hire, carjacking, extortion, and other violent street crime. They are also known to control some of the taxi services. Violent transnational criminal organizations also conduct narcotics trafficking and other illicit commerce.”

    So who thinks crossing the US border makes them all saints? Wanted criminals are wise to head north to cross the US border. Those released from prison have records and face police harassment and employment problems, so heading north also makes sense. Any immigrant who arrives penniless will steal what they can to survive. That’s why a focus on Hispanic crime rates is misleading. Stats on impoverished illegal immigrant crimes rates of any race would be shocking, but are not publicized for that reason.

    If you want a graphic display of Hispanic crime, just look at the current LAPD most wanted list to learn why whites fear Hispanic crime.

    As President Trump noted, illegal immigrants are not the best from Latin American nations, but the worst, the unwanted. Latin American nations have shipped their unwanteds to the USA for decades. Our media ignored the recent “caravans” from Central America arrived at the USA on chartered buses, paid for by Mexicans. They are furious that North Americans want this dumping stopped.

    Well, in America the rarely-admitted truth is that virtually all interracial violence involves blacks, and that was absolutely the case in the high racially-charged California violence of the late 1960s/early 1970s.

    These days, a pretty remarkable fraction of all the adult black males in CA are already in prison, already dead from past violence or drug use, or sometimes pushed out to other states with lower housing costs. That’s been a huge factor behind the decline.

    Furthermore, since a large fraction of state’s electorate is Hispanic or Asian, they’re much less cowed by MSM denunciations if they support local crackdowns on the black criminals who remain around.

    Also, the decline in the white population of CA really shouldn’t be exaggerated. About 50 years ago, the state had 20M people and was around 80% white. Now it has 40M people and is 30-35% white. So there’s only been a small decline in white numbers. It’s just that the Hispanic and Asian numbers have grown so rapidly.

  82. A great article from Ron, very perceptive and thought provoking. However, instead of making a case for “self-censorship”, why not make a case for “Choose your battles wisely”?

So there is less opposition and more a sense of unity as those folks have been replaced by immigrants. So now you just have relatively small wealthy White/Asian communities that are immune to social issues and non-wealthy Hispanic populations that have become a large majority and have shaped the state in their image.

    ‘The reality of violent inner-city crime is indicated today by statistics obtained by The Sunday Telegraph.

    The official figures, which examine the ethnicity of those accused of violent offences in London, suggest the majority of men held responsible by police for gun crimes, robberies and street crimes are black. Black men are also disproportionately the victims of violent crime in the capital. The statistics, released by the Metropolitan Police, permit an informed debate on a sensitive subject for the first time.

    The data provide a breakdown of the ethnicity of the 18,091 men and boys who police took action against for a range of violent and sexual offences in London in 2009-10. They show that among those proceeded against for street crimes, 54 per cent were black; for robbery, 59 per cent; and for gun crimes, 67 per cent. Street crimes include muggings, assault with intent to rob and snatching property.

    Just over 12 per cent of London’s 7·5 million population is black, including those of mixed black and white parentage, while 69 per cent is white, according to the Office for National Statistics.’

    Rectification would involve annulling it, with revised citizenship being based on being a citizen in 1965 or being the direct descendent of a person who was a citizen in 1965.

    Citizenship (and voting rights) would then more or less revert to the mix in 1965, with non-qualifying current citizens having their status changed to “long term resident” without voting rights – but all their other rights untouched as long as they paid taxes.

    Fine food for thought from Mr. Unz. Much appreciated.

    My first reaction, actually the only reaction, is that all this is a fine argument for devolution.

    If Silicon Valley, not to mention Portland, Oregon and Taos, New Mexico and Sedona, Arizona are so radically unaware of West Virginia (et al.) why, really, should we pretend they are the same nation?

    It’s all there in the Anti-Federalist Papers which are not hard to find. What’s difficult is which one of those ancient lads was more prophetic than the other.

    Silicon Valley, as a Crown Colony of the Federal Reserve (and Global Tech corporations more generally), could and should remain as it is. As for the rest of us…

    Just take one issue and unwrap it, and the whole becomes clear. Try the bogus opioid epidemic.

    The details are unnecessary for us to get into (especially since there’s been a suicide epidemic accelerating since 2008). They spun it in such a way as to (a) turn all legitimate pain sufferers into “addicts” by cutting them off from legitimate relief, and (b) increased the power of at least three federal agencies (FDA, DEA, CDC) so that every trip to the doctor, from now on, will be a visit to the Security State.

    So the effect was? Obvious and quick. A fifty-ish fellow with severe permanent degenerative pain from an industrial accident long ago was cut off cold here in flyover country, same as war veterans with similar injuries… among many others.

    But the fifty-ish fellow made a 2+2=5 deduction immediately. He is convinced this was a totalitarian, coordinated move to create customers for Afgan heroin he’s certainthe CIA is flying into the country by the ton every day.

    People in pain have every reason to believe the worst about those who dole it out and those who add to the misery. I cannot blame the fellow.

    And that’s only one topic.

    As a libertarian from the late 70s I can relate all the stories of “unintended consequences” but this one looks intentional. Some individuals or groups, very high up, want to ratchet up the fear and anger quotient down below. Drugs, race, sex, income… it goes across the board. Those of us in industrial security see bits of all of it. Not getting better since Trump.

    An economic devolution first, gradually moving to self-sufficiency till political seperation becomes necessary (flags always follow money). A peaceful possibility and in accordance with self-determination as the Founders intended.

    If the old Soviet Union could do it there is no reason why we cannot. From “Evil Empire” to normal and natural nations. From “Great Satan” to a swath of truly independent countries between Canada and Mexico. Each deciding its own fate and following its own destiny.

    In the eighties, I taught in a high school that went from about 80% Hispanic/20% Asian to about 60% Hispanic/40% Asian over the four years I was there.

    There was a fair amount of inter-racial tension and violence including at least one shooting. Nothing like what would have gone on if blacks had been one of the groups, but it wasn’t all peaceful harmony.

    In general, while I side with you in your distaste for the more virulent forms of anti-Hispanic bigotry, I think you go overboard in the opposite direction. They’re not perfectly assimilable (sp?), and particularly not in the quantities that they’ve been arriving in.

    Probably, but only to a very limited extent. A considerable portion of the white working-class has been driven out to other states by economic competition from immigrants, and lots of higher-paid workers left after the collapse of the aerospace industrial after the end of the Cold War. Housing is so ridiculously expensive that lots of younger whites have to move away to other states to buy homes, and older whites eventually sell their small homes here for a million or two million and retire elsewhere.

    – 2000 census: 15.8 million
    – 2010 census: 15.0 million
    – 2017 Census Bureau estimate: 14.6 million

    A significant population loss, near 20% by one possible measure. By 2017, California should have had 18 million Whites if its population growth were exactly in line with nationwide average White population growth of 1990 to 2017 (+5%). California is now on track for <14.5 million Whites for the 2020 census to be taken in a year and a half.

    The total USA White non-Hispanic population in 1990 was 188.1 million and 2017 is estimated at 197.3 million, a figure now also in absolute decline (national peak year: 2015 at 197.5 million).

    Fixing each at 1990=100:

    USA, White population (absolute)
    1990: 100
    2017: 105

    California White population (absolute)
    1990: 100
    2017: 86

    This significant population loss since 1990 seems to me to be a case of Whites voting with their feet, anti-endorsing the multiracial California model.

It’s no accident that Google, Facebook and other social network websites are culling free speech, and targeting “Alt-Right” web pages for dismissal. What should be discerned by the gentry is the strange relationship between supposedly ultra-conservative luminaries such as Limbaugh and Prager with these social network operators. In case you haven’t noticed, Limbaugh ‘presided’ over two Clinton Presidencies, two Obama Presidencies, Gay Marriages, Partial-Birth Abortions, Moonbeam II and other liberal campaigns coming to fruition. If you desire to hear a full accounting of Israel’s efforts to (again..) employ American Military Forces to fight their battles, tune-in to the surviving “Alt-Right” channels for the latest pep talk.

    I stopped self-defining as a “conservative” of any type a long time ago and started trying to analyze issues one by one. The left/right single-dimension axis tends to be used to herd people into uncritically accepting certain positions without thinking too much.

    With that said, those who accept the label “Alt-Right” have already ceded rhetorical ground to the Bill Kristol crowd. The “Alt-Right” is traditional conservatism. It doesn’t need a new name. It is the neoconservatives who are the splinter group, deserving the qualifier.

    As far as censorship in Silicon Valley is concerned, extreme elements of the far right are being used (and no doubt impersonated) as bogeymen for justification, but the real targets and motivations of the crackdown can be gleaned from Google’s handbook for search evaluators:

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-10-google-internal-handbook-instructs-engineers-to-bury-natural-news-web-pages-from-search-results.html

    On page 108 of the search evaluator quality guidelines, Google gives a glimpse into the type of reference information they bury, including “Pages that directly contradict well-established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories), unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.”

    I’d imagine those well established historical facts include the official 9/11 and Holocaust narratives, both of which have steadily been losing ground, especially among millennials.

    More clues from Google’s “Good Censor” memo:

    https://www.scribd.com/document/390521673/The-Good-Censor-GOOGLE-LEAK#from_embed

    Page 66: “The American Tradition” (free speech) vs. the “European Tradition (dignity over liberty).” When you consider that the CIA largely created that “European Tradition,” and controls the narrative of their press, the issue becomes clear: Given the information-porous borders, we can’t give ordinary Americans a platform to undermine our foreign propaganda.

    There’s no doubt that Google works closely with the government. There have been racist and anti-semitic sites on the Internet from the beginning. They have little impact other than being useful scarecrows to motivate ADL and SPLC contributors.

    They’re a lot more frightened about some of the whoppers they were used to getting away with in the pre-Internet age being exposed, or perceptive foreign policy analysis that will hurt their misdirection tactics.

    With “Colin Wright” “Alt-right (Or Anyone) Doesn’t Need Enemies, Suckers

    Take Holocaust Denial. I happen to be convinced that the Holocaust happened substantially as advertised, but others aren’t.

    What?–first of all, it’s holohoax, nothing else. And WHO would be “convinced” holohoax “happened substantially as advertised…”?–absolutely NO ONE, but a satanic liar, that’s who, the purpose being to besmirch heroic German people who fought so brilliantly against Jew-Bolshevik murderers, which Jew-bolsheviki had already shown themselves as mass-murderers in Ukraine in 1932-3, before NSDAP took power and which heroic German people really were mass-exterminated by Jews, Eisenhower (who was a Jew), and their satanic suck-alongs of the West, Jew S A, and UK.

    [MORE]

    Think about it–anyone who’d lie about holohoax, as above quote, would probably deny millions of Germans were mass-murdered, as by starvation and disease during and after WWII, according to evidence by James Bacque, deny the holodomor of Ukraine, and deny the Armenian mass-murders by the Donmeh crypto descendents of Jew messiah, Sabbatai Zevi, who’d taken control of Turkey–they’d also deny that holohoax is deliberately pushed by Jews-media and public edjumacation establishment as way of masking and justifying the ethnic cleansing of Palestine–as well as everywhere else, presently, in Western world. Good gravy.

    Seriously: just ask urself what sort of psychopathic, lying filth would blithely say such thing (quoted, above)?

    But that’s not the end, next we get this gem:

    plugging Holocaust denial in particular, one immediately marginalizes both oneself and anyone one is associated with. Unz Review can have twelve interesting ideas that might actually gain traction with the casual visitor — but if Holocaust Denial is at the top of the page, he’ll move hastily on.

    Isn’t it OBVIOUS that there’s alternative to the idiot suggestion of the quote?–that calling spade spade, and that holohoax is simply satanic lying, is really and truly simply standing up for truth and against satanic lying?

    Observe how the moron drones blithely on,

    …but if Holocaust Denial is at the top of the page, he’ll move hastily on.

    No sucker, only one who’d do that would be purest, most worthless COWARD, suck-along w. satanists and Jews, Jews the REAL problem, the worst enemies of all humanity, justly hated by all races and cultures, all throughout history.

    So we see Unz, the Jew, setting things up for such cowardly, craven, satanic lies, like holohoax, and gross, utter COMPROMISE for those whom Unz patronizingly pretends to want to “helping” or advising, or counseling–good grief. For with people like “Colin Wright,” whose probably either Jew or homosexual (or both), no Christian or “alt-right” or any gentile of any self-respect needs enemies.

    So this is what Unz’s website is all about, is it?–the compromising and subverting of the general patriot, “nationalist” movement?–by means of moronic crap like this fm “Colin Wright”?

    Comrades, if we’re ANY kind of self-respecting humans, we must stand for TRUTH, the original Christian ideal (Gosp. JOHN 14:6)–and holohoax is dead give-away for the very most deadly SATANIC problem and affliction, this putrid, namby-pamby, limp-wristed sort of lying and corruption as “Colin Wright,” who imagines humanity is soooo stupid as to just let it pass by–like Unz does, we see.

    Unz, u fool, don’t u realize “Colin Wright” has exposed u?–compromised u?–absolutely reduced u to abject, comical, and moronic absurd? U censor an honest person like me, but u blandly publish this complete dweeb, “Colin Wright,” and expect it to just get along?

    Now we get to the REAL Unz, don’t we?–for what kind of person, in the first place, is willing to be known as “Jew,” Unz, tell us–especially w. the OBVIOUS Talmudic connection and implications. Don’t tell us u’re not “religious,” Unz, as this idiot “atheism” (or whatever) is well-known and classic stratagem, which atheism itself is mere religion all its own–no one can or ever has PROVEN there’s no God, sucker. And yet to insist there isn’t (any God) w. the sort of emotion and steadfastness atheists (almost always Jews) typically display is just an analogous kind of religious conviction and comportment.

    For if u’re truly “atheist,” then why would u call urself “Jew”? Isn’t ur racial association quite “religious” in itself? U’re willing to be known as Jew–even though so many people hate Jews?–Jews notorious objects of hatred, revulsion, fear, suspicion, question, etc.

    We gentiles and Christians have ALWAYS hated Jews, Unz–can’t u finally figure that out? Christian religion is necessarily anti-semitic as Judaism and Talmud are blatant ANTI-THESIS, even in the classic Hegelian style, to Christian truth ideal. Even before the Christians, u Jews were particularly hated by gentiles, including esp. the Greeks in their rationalist tradition, who also held TRUTH as foremost ideal.

    Even if u pretend u’re atheist and “not religious,” fact remains u, simply as Jew, preach tolerance of those Talmudistics of ur racial/genetic relation WHO ARE “religious.” So u can’t get away fm the problem of ur hypocrisy, on the one hand not willing to own to the Talmud, yet pretending it’s okay to be related genetically, not regretting the Talmud–because u KNOW it would be TREASON to ur people, including the religious–which repudiation u’re not willing to assume. By calling urself “Jew,” Unz, u repudiate humanity.

    Unz: face the hard facts, buddy: if u’re Jew, u’re no friend or even fellow of any gentiles or human beings. Regardless anything else, u’re simply a “Trojan Horse,” an “ice-breaker,” as it were, for fellow Jews who ARE “religious” and Talmudic, even if it were possible u weren’t–u can’t deny it–not in reason or truth. Entertaining “Colin Wright” is too much of a travesty and joke.

    People always say this but never with an example of what should be done and any thought as to how it would work. We can’t say that Hispanics don’t succeed academically because somebody will trot out Jaime Escalante and his (mostly exaggerated) success. Besides if we just spent more of whitey’s money on another program, that should do it. Can’t talk about higher welfare use because whites use the most welfare (even if their rate of use is lower). Can’t talk about affirmative action for people who just hopped the fence (white privilege and all that).

    How do you argue for less Hispanic immigration when the only thing you are allowed to say is how wonderful they are?

    Please put one thing out there that will get any response other than people sticking their fingers in their ears and screaming “racist” until you go away.

    ‘Well, in America the rarely-admitted truth is that virtually all interracial violence involves blacks…’

    Meh. That’s somewhat exaggerated. If we got rid of all blacks, things would be massively improved — but they wouldn’t become all sweetness and light.

    Well, I was only slightly exaggerating. If you haven’t already, you might want to take a look at my big Race/Crime article from a few years ago:

    http://www.unz.com/runz/race-and-crime-in-america/

    One of my most remarkable findings was that when you analyze the violent crime rates across all of America’s cities over the last 25 years, you discover that the correlation with the percentage of the black population closely approaches unity, ranking it as among the highest correlations ever found in the social sciences. Put another way, to a good approximation the only factor that determines an American city’s violent crime rate is the relative size of the local black population:

    Several of America’s most eminent social scientists were absolutely stunned by my finding, which I’d been casually aware of for many, many years.

    So basically Unz’s whole point is SV is against Alt-right because they are much more multicultural and do not see the threat.

    I don’t think Unz is being honest here. The real issue here is SV has been taken over by Jews just like Wall Street, Hollywood, K Street, DNC, the media, academia and judiciary. Jews go whole hog embracing multiculturalism because it benefits them in at least 3 ways, 1) in a nation of all Christian whites, Jews are at the bottom of the totem pole, but when surrounded by all non-whites, they are suddenly “white” by comparison, 2) they are no longer the only out group, hence “safer”, and 3) they like cheap labor.

    When Jews take over an institution/industry, they invariably run it to the ground through their greed, dishonesty and lack of self-restraint, and the best way to hide all that moral degeneracy is through loud virtue signaling. The book Brotopia talks about the drugs, sex, and moral degeneracy of SV approaching the level of Hollywood. We can even see this through the shows produced by Netflix and Amazon, SV and Hollywood are converging. And with the hiring of Obama admin people and financing by Wall Street run private equity, SV is converging with Hollywood, DC and Wall Street. This always happens when Jews are in charge. Hitting out at alt-right is just virtue signaling to cover up their own moral degeneracy.

    In addition, cheap labor is the lifeblood of the tech industry. Tech plantation owners from Gates to Zuckerberg, Bezos to Jewgle to Tim Cook need their cheap code coolies. Even though they hire no more than 5,000 blue badge employees a year between these top 5 firms, they employ hundreds of thousands of contingent staff through consulting agencies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro, who hire all their code coolies from India, China, Philippines and elsewhere. Trump’s “America First” agenda could put a hamper on that cheap code coolie pipeline, though Trump’s been all talk and no walk on this front and has done nothing to stop the H1b, OPT, L1, B1 hirings, we know Jews are a paranoid lot. Zuckerberg and Jewgle guys need a few more billions to keep up with Bezos.

    One must ask why white males in the tech industry who are increasingly losing jobs to cheap foreign workers willingly join in on this assault of the alt-right, against their self-interest. My experience from hanging out with them is they are either so dumb they bought in on all this virtue signaling, or are part of the large stock holder class and want to profit off the cheap labor themselves, or both.

    @jack daniels

    I have some minor quibbles with Mr. Unz’s piece (there are indeed many Mexicans in West Virginia

    Well, I’ll admit I was being a little rhetorical. But according to the Census, West Virginia is only 1.6% Hispanic and California is almost 40%, meaning we have about 500x as many. So I do think it’s just a small exaggeration to say that most people in WV have “almost no contact” with Mexicans.

    but my main point is that anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, and even anti-black rhetoric is a “sublimation” of resentment of changes in society that are mostly the doing of Jews. Since it is too dangerous to criticize Jews there is a tendency to blame Muslims or other less powerful minorities e.g. only an already marginal commentator will raise the issue of a Jew complaining about a Christmas display but it’s acceptable to make a fuss about the rare Muslim who complains. After this habit gets ingrained people start to think that it really IS Muslims or Hindus who are responsible for ending the Christmas concert or banning CS Lewis books when it’s nearly always Jews.

    LOL!! I’d never realized that the Foxtards had now started blaming Muslims for America’s 50-year “War on Christianity,” but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised and your social analysis is exactly correct.

    One of the really amusing aspects is that Muslims actually consider Jesus as the Holy Prophet of God and Muhammed’s immediate predecessor, and regard insults against him as the worst form of blaspheme, which Islamic Fundamentalists would probably punish by death. Muslims even accept the Virgin Birth. Meanwhile, Jews regard Jesus as about the vilest man who ever lived, condemned to spend eternity suffering in a boiling vat of excrement.

    Another similar example of this “sublimation” even more relevant to this thread is the ridiculous way most rightwingers discuss crime. Based on all available evidence, Hispanics have approximately the same crime rates as whites of the same age, while black crime rates are so horrifically high they almost entirely determine the overall crime rates of any American city or locality (see my other comment upthread).

    But since discussing black crime is “racist” and will get you banned from the media, nearly all rightwingers are too scared to touch it with a ten-foot pole and instead make up the most ridiculous sort of nonsense about Hispanic or immigrant crime. That’s where all the Ann Coulter/Donald Trump nonsense about “killers and rapists” swarming across the border comes from. Meanwhile, to prove he wasn’t “racist,” Trump just endorsed that bill apparently letting huge numbers of serious criminals out of American prisons.

    “Holocaust Denial” is an incendiary term that will justify the unleashing of the Jewish SMR (Scalded Monkey Routine) response to such heresy and hatred. Many Jews “Deny the Holocaust”, and even a scintilla of scrutiny applied toward that topic opens up an entire chapter revealing its origins: War Atrocity Propaganda. As the Holocaust Industry slowly dispenses with the most ridiculous elements of that event, such as Human Soap, a leftover from WWI, along with lampshades made from Jewish Skin, Holocaust historians must feverishly revamp their published volumes and lecture content to keep up with the changes. Hilberg, for example, deleted references to his “Hitler Orders to Exterminate the Jews” published in his standard reference work “The Destruction of the European Jews” after confessing his inability to produce those orders during his testimony at the Zundel False News Trial in Canada. What goyim should know is that, during Zundel’s Appeal Trial, NONE of the witnesses, historians or prosecution experts would appear and testify under oath.

    (Can you say “Perjury”?…….)

    Truly, Holocaust Revisionism is akin to shooting Gefilte fish in a barrel, which is why the Industry has shifted their efforts toward government sanction and protection of that fairy tale.

    I was wanting to bring up that point. White Hispanics may as young men get up to some mischief, even serve time. But they are working class young white and Asian men’s rituals everywhere in the world. That is manageable. But of course one would rather working class Hispanics were not in large numbers living in the non Mexican historic areas. Can’t really hold it against them for living in the Mexican historic areas. It’s the Mestizo problem. I am sure but don’t know if you checked the racial descent of the vicious Hispanic gangs and random violence actors, you would see maybe even entirely they are Mestizos. The Caribean Hispanics are the black problem and should not be included with the American Hispanics. Of course, there are lovely Mestizos. But I think a good male Mestizo unless he is very intelligent must have an institutional support such as a Church.

    Yes, perhaps the final decisions about disappering sites or blogs are made in Silicone Valley but I find it unlikely the personal experiences of the people running these companies makes much difference. After all they are running multi billion dollar enterprises laying golden eggs and at the same time are under serious political pressure both in the U.S. and abroad. They have a lot to loose if they don’t play ball and since the business model for most of them is harvesting private information from the public to sell to their advertisers – ideological issues like free speech are hardly high on the priority list. Disappering few bad apples mumbling about controversial issues is just the cost of doing business.

    When I think of white liberals you talk of but the hyperatomized libertarian LARP crowd really aren’t much different from, I think I can understand things like public executions and cheering crowds in the not-so-distant past for crimes of treason. No sense of the past, present or future. No solidarity with your own kind. No real investment in the future. Purely treasonous and mercenary. Whatever gets you the most money in the here and now, future costs be damned.

    Let’s be real here. Every single demographic except for SOME east Asians commits significantly more crime (as in multiples) of the white rate. Central and South American countries have some of the highest murder rates in the world. They are utter hellholes. The fact that the US government calls Mestizos and every other non-European they can “White” for the purpose of obfuscating the crime rates in the US doesn’t change this fact. It doesn’t matter that blacks are overall generally the worst.

    Letting these people in is more crime that can be prevented by not letting them in. In any case, they all have their own countries. If they’re really as great as you claim they are, why are their countries all such toilet bowls?

    Thank you once again Ron for keeping a laser like focus on the perils of legal immigration along with that of illegal immigration, which most people just discount as something innocuous. Replacing the upper middle class and the elite class of this country with someone from a low trust, dog eat dog culture like India and China will irreversibly change the character of our country as well as the direction it is going in. We see the terrible repercussions of importing high IQ and extremely low trust (with goyim out-groups) ashkenazi folk today.

    Granted China is miles ahead of India (which is way way more ethnocentric due to it’s myriad castes and competing groups treating eat other as out-groups) but still it is way too different from a Saxon perspective that provides Anglo-Saxon Europe and Anglo Saxon derived derived nations such high quality of life which is based on a high trust society

    Though we do differ on the role Hispanic or rather (to be precise) Mestizos are going to play in the country, there are at least agreements on the perils of legal immigration that you seem to understand well. That’s positive

    I wrote “Not sure how you can be so wrong on this” because in general you strike me as a solid researcher. Maybe you have a blind spot on this issue as you seem to be super pro-Hispanic immigration? I gave you some research ideas (La Raza and Reconquista), I’m sure if you set your mind to it and research it objectively you will find it is far, far more than your “Supreme UFO God” anecdote. I don’t follow it in great detail but there was a quite big deal about this during the 2006 pro-immigration protests, with countless La Raza protesters in the US waving Mexican flags and walking the walk. Although I generally don’t like Human Events, some of that activity is summarized there.

    No, the Latinos are an invading force, there is no doubt in my mind. They are smart enough not to rock the boat while the minority, but they will soon be the majority, and you will see more power be exercised. I don’t claim every Latino is anti-European, but virtually every Latino identifies with Latinos, not with Europeans. I have lived all over both metropolitan and rural California, not just the utterly unrepresentative Silicon Valley, and I quite know what I am writing about here. When push comes to shove, and the Latino leader comes along, they will follow him, not you, and not Whitey.

    The trick to dealing with accusations of racism is to act like you’ve just been accused of…something irrelevant. When you start sputtering denials, they win. When you ignore the accusation, or hurl it back, and move on quickly to your next talking point as if nothing significant has happened (because nothing has), you’re starting to “get” it. If need be, you can start enumerating all the ways that the left is racist against Whites*. If you don’t know many, go hone your rhetoric, you aren’t ready for advocacy.

    Have it your way, then. Holocaust Denial is the rational, demonstrably true belief and belief in the reality of the Holocaust is logically indefensible.

    You’re magnificently missing the point. My point was:

    ‘…The problem I see is that in plugging Holocaust denial in particular, one immediately marginalizes both oneself and anyone one is associated with…’

    No, I got your point, but you larded it with some really shitty talking points that I wanted to correct.

    Yes, you’re right, a lot of normies are repelled by Shoah revisionism. A lot of normies are also worthless shytes (far too “respectable”) who will never join us until it’s totally obvious which way the wind is blowing, and by then we won’t need them anymore.

    Not saying there’s no middle ground, but that was part of my point; many styles for many audiences. There are a LOT of very rational white guys out there who, frankly, don’t give a good flying goddamn what the herd thinks and are instead rather fond of doing their own thinking. They’re the audience for Shoah revisionism. IOW, I think there’s room for both styles.

    You gotta think about what you’re in this for. Are you trying to demonstrate your wisdom and intellectual integrity to yourself — or do you want to change people’s minds about the issues that matter right now?

    IMO there’s no One True Way. Not in terms of optimal systems of gov’t, and not in optimal systems of advocacy. E.g., to your left there are guys kvetching about how aunty-semytizm is holding us back. And to their left, guys kvetching about racism. Etc. I happen to know from experience that treetopping counter-semitism right from the start can turn guys into WNs, because I’m one of those guys. My philosophy is to just shoot straight and not try to hard to tailor stuff to the listener, at least online. Give the facts, and let people make of them what they will.

    P.S., I happen to have a very unique approach to “revisionism” that actually doesn’t constitute “denial.” Only skepticism. I happen to find it a lot more defensible and persuasive than the hard-core denial methods I see others using. The fact is, I’m not a scholar, and I don’t know enough about the subject to really hold forth, one way or the other. On the other hand, I absolutely know that the orthodox narrative stinks. I mean really stinks. That is undeniable, and I can easily prove it. But truth be told, I don’t know for certain what happened. But to each his own.

    1) in a nation of all Christian whites, Jews are at the bottom of the totem pole, but when surrounded by all non-whites, they are suddenly “white” by comparison

    lol, Jews did quite well in Europe during the Middle Ages, when all but Jews were forced to convert to Christianity (i.e., they were the only “minority”), and are still doing quite well there now. And by doing quite well, I mean, the average Jew was vastly better off than the average Christian.

    2) they are no longer the only out group, hence “safer”

    It’s quite true that Jews have ruthlessly exploited other minorities – notably African-Americans in the US – to advance their own identity politics, but, I don’t see how that makes them safer. Aggressive, domineering, aberrational behavior can you get in trouble anywhere at any time, and Jews are notorious for absolutely refusing to assimilate – indeed that is their defining characteristic (Jews have always been free to assimilate wherever they have lived, whether in Christian or Muslim countries, it’s just that unlike everyone else, they adamantly refuse because of their belief in their own superiority, which is precisely the belief which gets them in “trouble” over time).

    3) they like cheap labor.

    Right, as if White and Black America weren’t flocking to Walmart (the China distribution center) in the 80s and 90s while America was being de-industrialized. Everyone likes cheap labor, i.e., everyone likes “more”.

    When Jews take over an institution/industry, they invariably run it to the ground through their greed, dishonesty and lack of self-restraint

    I don’t see how this is a peculiarly Jewish trait. What have Europeans done with their institutions? What has the Catholic Church done? What of the crimes of the nobility during feudalism, which mirror those of slavery? What rulers who have great power don’t abuse it? The only thing I would note that is particularly Jewish about the US corruption is that Jews put themselves above criticism with their “anti-Semitic” bullshit, which is enough reason to hate every single Jew who uses that epithet to advance Jewish power and corruption (which, unfortunately, is a quite large majority of self-identified Jews).

    We can even see this through the shows produced by Netflix and Amazon

    Of course the Christians pay for this degeneracy. It’s hardly fair to blame those who produce trash, when they get rich off it, and absolve those who buy it, thus creating the demand and reward. Note in this and virtually every other case of degeneracy, the First Amendment (as interpreted by the Black Robed Satanic Dictatorship) is the enemy of decency and edification.

    they hire no more than 5,000 blue badge employees a year between these top 5 firms

    I don’t know where you get this stat, but the fact is programming is an international language. If you had two equally competent employees, one demanding $150,000 per year and another $15,000 per year, who would you hire (imagine doing it now, with your money). I’ve been in that position myself, I never minded hiring foreign programmers (though I generally chose Eastern European ones). Again, this has nothing whatsoever to do with Jews; even if there were not a single Jew in the US or the world, this would be happening in the internet world.

  143. @Haxo Angmark

    The reason for the decline you cite will not be due to White Flight. Liberals are waving illegals into the country who not only vote, but they attach themselves to social programs, and bring with them the attitudes and political ideologies that made their own countries toilets. Mr. Unz ran for Governor of California (Actually, I would have voted for him!) His opposition to Proposition 187, which in part would have relieved Californians from underwriting funding to support illegal aliens, seems like a dichotomy, due to support for that measure coming in large part from Mexican Americans who went through the process of legally attaining U.S. Citizenship. There’s another dichotomy apparent among the liberal camp, as they campaign to increase the illegal alien population: They cite a very famous farm worker named Cesar Chavez as their poster child for these struggling people. Like everything else in the Puffy Lip environment, they didn’t realize Chavez himself despised illegal aliens. (You have to chuckle when Abraham Lincoln is canonized by liberals for freeing the black slaves. Lincoln wanted those people out of the U.S. His political campaign speech could have been the original Ku Klux Klan Manifesto.)

    What technically is “White” to you? Arabs are White, yet many Whites (despite denying Arabs are White) consider them to be especially violent (rightly or wrongly).

    Also, how do you measure murder rates? Consider WW II, which, at least in the European theater, was a war entirely between Whites in which 30 million or more were killed. How many years would it take S. America, with its current crime rates, to catch up to that tidy sum? Think of all the prior European wars, and the violence of feudalism.

    Perhaps if you tried to adjust for poverty and other factors you would find that these elements are more critical to crime rates than race. As a data point, consider crime rates in Russia during the Yeltsin years versus now, after economic stability has been restored, and consider the economic conditions in the high-crime Latin American areas. Indeed, go a step further, and compare Latin American crime rates over time against economic conditions for the lower classes over time.

    Here is another perspective: how many non-Whites have Whites murdered, if you count all of the wars and colonizations by White people? How many Native Americans, who greeted Columbus with flowers and gifts, were murdered and enslaved by him and his greedy criminal allies?

    Perhaps it can be said, that Whites are much more likely to commit collective, organized violence than other races?

Do white people who live in Central Valley, or Arizona, or Texas (et. al) not have experience with Mexicans? These are all places that voted for Trump too.

    Also, you can turn these lazy/facile heuristics on their head: what do you make of the fact that white people in Vermont (or Marin County) are way more pro Mexican immigration than white people in Texas (or San Diego County)? New Mexico has the most hispanics of any state, how are things going there (in terms of education, poverty, violent crime, overall social welfare)?

    Another point: try thinking in terms of ceteris paribus, not whether things are better now than they were in 1970. If you want an argument as to why immigration matters, go look up standardized test scores for whites and hispanics in California.

    By the way, I actually agree with you on a lot of things including the hispanic crime thing, and hispanic disease thing. I also think that immigration generally doesn’t lower native wages substantially, since immigrant labor complements native labor.

    I do have an idea at how to stab at the white left’s underbelly however. If you are a white in a hopeless political district, you could register as a democrat and always vote for the minority candidate in the democratic primaries. The more white democrats that realize that they have no place in the party of color, and will not be elected no matter how much corporate money gets thrown at them, the more they will start to see things our way. If for instance in Ron Unz’s California, Pelosi, Boxer, Feinstein, and Newsome all lost their primaries to Mexican-income-redistributionist-candidates in the next Democratic primaries because hordes of former white republican voters crossed lines and voted for them, the realization that they will not be running the future multicultural America will truly dawn on them.

    But the alt-right really needs to address other issues besides immigration. What is the point in “saving” our society from those black and brown hordes if we have a society that is so decadent and so degenerate that it’s not worth saving?

    And if the alt-right ever wants to gain significant support it might be a good idea to address economic issues. Trump won in 2016 by giving the appearance that on economic issues he was well to the left of Hillary Clinton. Economic populism with a left-wing tinge wins actual votes.

    As a social conservative I wish we had a populist party that was socially conservative, libertarian on speech, and economically friendly to the working class.

    There was a time when most Anglophone countries had such parties. Certainly in Australia up to the late 60s the Labor Party was generally like that. In fact up to the 50s the Australian Labor Party was very Catholic and very socially conservative.

    Such parties did exist in the past and there’s no reason they couldn’t exist today. In fact being left on economic issues and being conservative on social issues is a natural fit – the destruction of the family has been a catastrophe for the working class, as has the rising tide of drugs and sexual degeneracy.

    But Silicon Valley is a different story. One-third of the local population consists of Hispanic immigrants, mostly Mexican and a large fraction from an illegal immigrant background.

    It’s easy to overlook the fact that California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada were all first colonized by the Spanish, and that all of what is now the southwest United States was first claimed by Spain in the 1600-1700s. The Mexican Revolution for Independence from Spain in 1821 resulted in California becoming part of Mexico. Nobody spoke English, and all of the colonists were of Spanish descent. It was only after the Mexican-American war in 1848 that California finally became part of the USA, and up until this time vast majority of settlers spoke Spanish or were of Mexican heritage. This date was when the California Gold rush brought in hundreds of thousands of Europeans and Yankees from the eastern states.

    My point in mentioning this history is that most Americans don’t know the history of the American southwest, and that Mexicans were here first, well before Americans. All of the names are Spanish: San Francisco, Los Angeles, California, Colorado, El Paso, Santa Fe, etc. So they are not ‘immigrants’ in fact. The Spanish speakers were here first. English speakers came much later (and then fucked everything up).

    I’d say that the degree of racial/ethnic friction in 30% white CA might even be less than it was between Irish and Italians living in the Boston area 50-odd years ago.

    This kind of violence is heavily repressed. Even “talk” of racial dislikes is extremely heavily repressed. It is true that you can keep people down with heavy totalitarian repression like California employs, but that doesn’t mean people don’t have racial or ethnic animus; it just means people are fearful. You can see what happens when the pressure cooker is removed in many instances in history, including, for example, the break-up of Yugoslavia.

    So one thing that has *enormously* improved in CA over the last couple of generations has been the almost total disappearance of the sharp racial conflict that used to be such a major problem here.

    This again depends on how you look at it. I find California to be amazingly segregated. You have Hispanics working in White businesses, but in general, not living with them. Integration is very poor. While I don’t sense a great hostility among the general population, there isn’t any great love either. You do not even see very many Hispanic-White couples – indeed, astoundingly few – despite the almost pervasive “economic integration” (meaning, Hispanics are constantly in contact with Whites due to work patterns).

    Again, it seems to me a lot of the conflict has been suppressed by California’s totalitarian Communist approach on any outward sign of “racism”, with the false “equality” dogma that Communists always use, which is perfectly displayed in SV itself.

    Can someone (Ron?) put forward a theory as to why Hispanics have similar violent crime rates to non-Hispanic whites in the U.S., while in the Latin American countries from which they’re drawn,

    Is this question really being posed honestly? Surely, all you would need to do is think about the question for a few minutes to come up with a theory. Or more than one theory even.

    There are two obvious theories that aren’t even mutually exclusive.

    The first obvious theory is that the people committing most of the crimes in the countries of origin are not the ones emigrating to the U.S.

    That’s the simplest possibility. The other thing to consider is that crime, like most other human behavior, is situational. It occurs in a specific context. For example, it is well known that Lieutenant William Calley and the rest of Charlie Company entered a Vietnamese village called My Lai and massacred hundreds of villagers, mostly women and children.

    I am pretty sure that, by and large, these same people who did that, after returning to their home towns in the States, never committed such crimes again, or anything remotely similar.

    Is there some mystery there that needs explaining?

    It’s easy to overlook the fact that California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada were all first colonized by the Spanish, and that all of what is now the southwest United States was first claimed by Spain in the 1600-1700s.

    claimed? that’s a cute word

    who did they steal it from?

    The Spanish speakers were here first. English speakers came much later (and then fucked everything up).

    by “fucked everything up” i presume you mean “built everything”

That is not required for “tech giants” not in the hardware field of computer manufacture. As the software tech giants move away from there or simply have to expand to other areas, their employees will be relocating too.

    Those “Spanish” were a lot different from the current “Hispanic” Indians, so different they have almost nothing in common except for those Mexican Indians learning a European language . Just as the ‘white Spanish” had nothing to do with the Indians running around Mexico other than kill and enslave them. Sure the “Spanish” were in California first, but those Spanish were white people and they don’t exist in California anymore and have not for hundreds of years. Simply put Mexicans are not Spanish so to claim they have some sort of ethnic precedent right to takeover California ain’t there.

    Great exchange, Mark. Thanks for brining it to our attention.

    Speaking of bringing things to people’s attention, at the very end of your email exchanges it indicates that you are the editor of the book, Persecution, Priviledge & Power.

    Here is the Product Description on Amazon:

    “PERSECUTION, PRIVILEGE & POWER” is a controversial but compelling collection of articles that critically explores the impact and influence of organized Zionism on American life and global politics. In one volume, thirty contributing editors weigh in on the hottest and most taboo subject in the Western world; namely, the overpowering reach and influence of organized Jewish groups towards directing policies in Washington that are favorable to the State of Israel or the perceived well-being of Jews world-wide. The taboo against critically exploring the downside of these tribal machinations is cast aside in this searing and informative anthology. Among the distinguished commentators found in “PERSECUTION, PRIVILEGE & POWER” are: James Petras, Charlie Reese, Alison weir, Ray McGovern, Kevin MacDonald, Stephen Lendman, John V. Whitbeck, Israel Shamir, Mark Weber, Richard Curtiss, Gilad Atzmon, Joseph Sobran and others. Throughout this volume, Israel’s dubious role as an American ‘asset’ goes under the microscope, as does that nation’s favored status with whatever Party rules Washington. The writing is direct and penetrating and the conclusions are often explosive. Domestic politics–even world history–will never quite be the same after reading this incisive compilation of web-based analysis. “PERSECUTION, PRIVILEGE & POWER” is a fast read that also makes a provocative and memorable gift.

    I think as many Unzers as possible should make a point of purchasing your book.I know I will be.

First let’s delete the unnecessary judgmental adjectives “heated rhetoric” and “ferocious” — these are propaganda words which apparently represent your opinion and, by the way, are in conformity with the prevailing leftist, anti-Trump narrative.

    The race/ethnicity of known Shooting suspects is most frequently Black (74.7%). Hispanic suspects accounted for an additional (22.2%) of all suspects. White suspects (2.1%) and Asian/Pacific Islander suspects (0.8%) accounted for the remaining portion of known Shooting suspects……….. END QUOTE

White people can no longer afford homes in the cities they created. Crime, pollution, housing costs, fuel , and every single indicator of a reduced quality of life has gone off the charts for every white Canadian.

    Well, I don’t think an average white decline of 0.3% per year in CA over fifty years would be called a “mass exodus” by most people. Moreover, it helps to distinguish between two models.

    Some agitated people claim that whites are fleeing CA because of the horrors of living as a shrinking minority in a mostly non-white state.

    Meanwhile, I claim that whites have gradually been pushed out by outrageously expensive housing costs as well as terrible traffic and serious economic competition with immigrant workers.

    I’d say that a white decline of 0.3% per year seems to strongly support my analysis of the situation.

    Given his political tendencies, rather than writing an OL to the Alt-Right, I would have expected Ron to have written a letter to the “Alt-Left” organizations, such as the SPLC and the ADL.

    Excerpt from IS FREE SPEECH UNDER ATTACK BY TECH COMPANIES AND MEDIA OUTLETS WITH A LEFT-LEANING AGENDA?

    At issue in particular is the media’s use of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to single out groups that should be targeted by tech companies for removal. Many on the right claim that the ADL and the SPLC are left-leaning organizations that use their list as a political cudgel against those they don’t agree with, like traditional Christian conservative organizations and others that oppose illegal immigration, unjustly lumping them together with white supremacist groups.

    https://dailycaller.com/2017/08/23/is-free-speech-under-attack-by-tech-companies-and-media-outlets-with-a-left-leaning-agenda/

    So, Ron expects us Dumb Goyim to accept his thesis that like himself the leaders of Big Texh companies are simply too busy with their software development projects to realize who they’re getting in bed with – i.e., left-leaning organizations, such as the ADL and SPLC?

    That their views happen to perfectly align is just coincidental? They are mere babes in the woods who are being taken advantage of and duped by those sly leaders of the ADL and SPLC?

    Sure, Ron. Whatever you say.

    Since these Big Tech companies provide essential services to the American public, what The Dumb Goyim need to do is demand that they become regulated public entities, pronto.

    Can someone (Ron?) put forward a theory as to why Hispanics have similar violent crime rates to non-Hispanic whites in the U.S. while…El Salvador, Honduras and Venezuela top the list of countries by homicide rate, exceeding the U.S. figures by over ten fold….Why do Hispanics behave differently in the U.S. than they do in Latin America?

    Sure, as others have discussed upthread, it’s because of different social and governmental conditions.

    Take Germans, who are extremely law-abiding and have always had very low crime rates in the U.S.. But during the Thirty Years Wars, they massacred each other in such huge numbers that the killings and chaos reduced Germany’s population by something like 35-40%, a result orders-of-magnitude worse than anything seen in Central America.

    If you look at the reported homicide rates in Mexico and Central America, they’ve varied quite considerably over the last 50 years, so although they’re very bad now, they weren’t in the past.

The Spanish speakers were here first.

    That’s actually a considerable distortion. When America seized those territories (and Texas), they constituted roughly half of Mexico’s land area but were so thinly populated, they held only about 1% of Mexico’s population. With the exception of New Mexico, they were mostly empty desert filled with scattered Indian tribes. For example, there were only something like 7,000 Spanish speakers in California and maybe twice that in Texas. These tiny populations were quickly swamped and absorbed in the huge waves of American newcomers who flooded into the area.

    Ron, respecfully, as Stalin may have stated, it depends on who is doing the counting.

These are clearly Hispanic criminals, and yet STILL Texas calls them “white” in their description. See link below.

    https://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/MostWanted/Fugitives

    Further supporting my statement , even the nutty left Young Turks devoted a segment to Texas calling Hispanic criminals “white” people.

    It difficult to square your figures with what we know about the malreporting of racial stats. Until recently, the FBI did not even have a category for Hispanics, and lumped them as white. Even now, (or at least the last time I checked) the FBI listed Hispanics as VICTIMS, but not as criminals.

    Please note that in the study of 16 million tickets undertaken by the local TV station KXAN, 4 out the top 5 last names Texas claimed where “white” people were Martinez, Hernandez, Garcia, and Rodrigez.

    The high incarceration rate for these Caribbean Hispanics may partially explain general perceptions of Hispanic crime rates. A large proportion of America’s intellectual, media, and political elite lives in the Northeast, in cities like New York and Boston, and if the Hispanics traditionally living in those areas have unusually high rates of criminal activity, there would be a natural if mistaken tendency to assume that this same pattern also applied to Hispanic groups throughout the country.

When these women arrive, they’re forced to work as sex slaves within Israel’s thriving brothel industry. On a regional scale, they’re attempting to subjugate neighboring nations using U.S. Military Forces and/or U.S. Military Hardware. Ethiopian women in Israel are forced to be sterilized by injections, and their males are regarded as second class citizens. Jews are an insular tribe, whose pernicious greed, mendacity and treachery have combined to cause their ouster from each nation in which they’ve assembled in significant numbers. Israel is a safe house for Jews. Herzl understood the need to provide a refuge for the tribe. Unfortunately, Jews picked the wrong location to set up shop in the Middle East.

    “So one thing that has *enormously* improved in CA over the last couple of generations has been the almost total disappearance of the sharp racial conflict that used to be such a major problem here.”

    California might be able to sustain this trend for a while, but I wouldn’t extrapolate the same trend to other jurisdictions.

    The odd thing about humans is that we are still animals. Animals, including primates, behave very differently in situations of resource scarcity than they do when they are constantly satiated. Orangutans, gorillas and other primates will be absolutely lethal to members of other groups when they are competing for food, but they will tolerate incursions by outsiders when they have sufficient resources.

    California has a ton of debt and a ton of poorer people, but on the whole it is not a particularly poor part of the world. (Hence the large numbers of immigrants). Given its massive economic output, it seems to be able to sustain large deficits, for now.

    Can every jurisdiction operate like California? Can we pack massively diverse populations into every corner of the planet and expect some tech utopia to emerge?

    I wager not. Throw in a depression, disruptions to food/energy/communications infrastructure, etc etc. We’ll see a lot of these diverse areas change rapidly, because human nature will come back into play.

    People tolerate differences as long as they have what they need, but as soon as they have to compete for resources they quicky find that being individualistic is suboptimal, and they gravitate towards people in their identity group.

To my mind, this means something is wrong with the numbers, the incident, or the people passing these laws. The more I read about it, the more convinced I became that the whole story must be a lie.

Jews were among the undesirables Hitler vowed to send packing, and he cooperated with Zionists to effect that ouster of Jews. Many Jews took up the offer, and they emigrated to Palestine. Many Jews did not comply with Der Fuhrer’s scheme, and when Zionists burned their bridges with a Declaration of War against Germany, in conjunction with a worldwide boycott of German goods. those Jews became enemies of the state. They were heartlessly rounded up and forced to live in concentration camps as laborers. The allied campaign to decimate German transportation systems sealed the fate of those camp occupants, who gradually starved to death, or succumbed to several diseases that spread through Europe during the war, as supply chains were disrupted during the chaotic period preceding the defeat of Germany. What we’re shown as a deliberate effort by Germans to annihilate the Jews was actually the result of allied bombing and tactical missions to cripple the German transportation system.

  207. This feels like it was addressed much more to the concerns of the Alt-Lite. The Alt-Right, certainly by 2017, was much more concerned about Jewish control of the country, ie was primarily anti-Semitic, and saw non-white immigration et al as secondary issues arising from control of the country by a hostile elite.

    The US Census Bureau has, in fact, reclassified Hispanics as ‘White’, and thus arrives at a situation where California is 72% ‘white’. It does have a separate line for Hispanics (39%) and for white non-Hispanics (37%), but the topline number combines most Hispanics into ‘white’ to arrive at ‘72% white’ :

I don’t believe they are, and it would seem that government sources support my conclusion. Including the last post from Thomas re: census bureau data, and how the US Census combines Hispanics and whites to come to a conclusion of “white alone” at 72.4% in California, when the real proportion is half that.

    No, you’ve gotten everything totally mixed up. For almost 50 years, the Census has classified Hispanics as an “ethnicity,” which may be of any race, and the reported race has varied over time. That’s why “whites” are always more properly defined as “non-Hispanic whites.” Naturally all my calculations utilize this distinction, and you really should read my article.

    I can’t really blame you for your huge errors since I think you said you’re Canadian, but I really do know this stuff very, very well. I certainly would be very careful to avoid saying such ridiculous things about Canadian society.

    “different universes” – SV (technology) and other “power centers” (Hollywood – movies; New York – advertising/finance; D.C. – politics) are indeed a different universe. Even though they have an enormous impact on the rest of the world, they are an extremely tiny portion of the world. They are representative of nobody.

    ” Based on the voting patterns” – Voting patterns means nothing. Don’t tell me you believe we live in a “democracy”. I have traveled far and wide in California and while I hardly discuss the topic with everyone, I have scarcely met people who approve of the state’s “sanctuary law” or that agree with “open borders”, yet, based on “voting patterns”, you would conclude an overwhelming majority of Californians support both policies.

    “Voting patterns” in China indicate the Communist Party is hugely popular. So did “voting patterns” in USSR until 1991 – when suddenly the “voting patterns” changed. Voting patterns are a statistic. And you know what they say about eyes and statistics ….

    Fundamentally where we disagree, is that I believe there is such a thing as “human nature”, call it “instinct”, and a very, very primal aspect of human nature is that people much prefer those who are similar over those who are dissimilar. No matter how much Communist propaganda the State throws at it, this does not change – because, it is human nature.

    Open borders and sanctuary laws violate the most basic aspects of human nature (as does, for example, gay marriage).

    Also I think this is why Californians are so miserable – because the more the propaganda departs from human nature, the more alienated people become from their inner selves, the unhappier people become.

    I have no doubt California, as its current form of State, is going to fail miserably, as it is a miserable experiment in totalitarian thought control, just like every other Communist effort before it.

    And please don’t start with the “Californians are enlightened” line. Look at the “polls” on how Californians feel about “Russian interference in the election” and other data, it is obvious Californians are just bleating sheep regurgitating the propaganda they are fed daily, just like everyone else. In fact Californians are particularly submissive sheep, they swallow the Bolshevik propaganda (whether it be trans-, “gay”, “immigration” or anything else) quicker than any other group I can think of. If the State ever collapses, you will learn extremely quickly what a fraudulent fig leaf this “manufactured consensus” is. It does not reflect reality but a deep fear of speaking “out of line” and being labeled and denounced.

    Back to the immigration point: there are the “statistics” (voting patterns) and then there is reality. As I have noted, although about 40% of the State is White and 40% Hispanic, you rarely if ever see White-Hispanic couples (or even friends or business partners for that matter – certainly they are far far fewer than half of these relationships, which an unbiased selection would yield). That tells you all you need to know. Deeds are always more powerful than words or “statistics”.

Well, it would be if their real job was to find out the truth about whatever topic and inform us of it.

    The main purpose of the mainstream media is not to tell the truth about anything any more than the purpose of the so-called “Justice” system is to impart justice.

    Their primary role is to uphold the Establishment narrative. Granted, they might tell the truth about a few things along the way, but that is almost incidental, kind of like the “Justice” system might actually impart some justice once in a while.

    Where you seemingly erred is majority that white cities, like Indianapolis and Columbus, that you used to favorably compare to majority Hispanic cities also have serious problems with black violent crime which artificially spiked the overall rate. The majority Hispanic cities also had much smaller black populations, so it really wasn’t an apples to apples comparison.

    You would need to extract the black crime rate from the majority white cities then re-compare to the majority Hispanic cities.

    If you did that I doubt the violent crime rates would be similar as you conclude in your analysis, and thus, “the myth of Hispanic crime” wouldn’t be a myth at all. Perhaps not chicken little levels of crime but definitely much higher than the white rate on a per capita basis.

    Hope sprang eternally among Zionists, who had already campaigned for decades to frighten, cajole, convince and connive their European brethren to occupy their new Homeland. If Jews have one overriding characteristic, it is their tenacity. Notice each time a car engine backfires, Jewish Congressional Representatives drag out their now-yellowed Gun Control Legislation forms for immediate consideration? These people have been trying to disarm Americans for decades, but only recently have these (rather convenient…) mass shootings occurred in such frequency that we’re all expected to march our weapons to the nearest police station for confiscation. One other trait of Jews can be discerned here: They tend to exaggerate.

    No, very high black crime rates are only slightly distorting the picture.

    The key point is that when you examine those city-by-city comparisons, you notice that an increase of e.g. 3 points in the black percentage seems to have approximately the same impact on crime rates as an increase of (say) 25 points in the Hispanic percentage. Obviously if Hispanics had the rather high crime rates you and others believe, this wouldn’t be the case.

    Obviously, this is a rather crude comparison methodology, but all the much more rigorously quantitative techniques I apply produce exactly similar conclusions.

    I see the “right” is very unhappy about the censorship situation but my impression is they are far from being alone in this regard. Anti establishment, anti war, writers of all sorts are also suffering. Just recently Patreon and Paypal dropped some youtube guy “Sargon of Akkad” and his sin seems to be having used the N-word in conversation where he was arguing against racism. Here is a video explaining the situation a little bit and judging from this Sargon wasn’t of the right wing variety.

    Here is article from Caitlin Johnstone who is primarily anti-war writer (and would fit nicely along with Philip Giraldi here on the Unz Review) about facebook purge of hundreds of sites. At least some of them had nothing to do with the right or A.R.

    Finally here is interesting article from Matt Taibbi
    https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/facebook-censor-alex-jones-705766/

    Short quote from Matt:

    Many of the banned pages look like parodies of some paranoid bureaucrat’s idea of dangerous speech.

    A page called “Black Elevation” shows a picture of Huey Newton and offers readers a job. “Aztlan Warriors” contains a meme celebrating the likes of Geronimo and Zapata, giving thanks for their service in the “the 500 year war against colonialism.”

    And a banned “Mindful Being” page shared this, which seems culled from Jack Handey’s Deep Thoughts bit:

    “We must unlearn what we have learned because a conditioned mind cannot comprehend the infinite.”

    Facebook also wiped out a “No Unite The Right 2” page, appearing to advertise a counter-rally on the upcoming anniversary of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    Facebook was “helped” in its efforts to wipe out these dangerous memes by the Atlantic Council, on whose board you’ll find confidence-inspiring names like Henry Kissinger, former CIA chief Michael Hayden, former acting CIA head Michael Morell and former Bush-era Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff. (The latter is the guy who used to bring you the insane color-coded terror threat level system.)

    So while I basically agree with Ron in his article I still think the personal views of the S.V. ceo’s doesn’t play much role in this game anymore. The stakes are too high.

    With all this going on it seems to me the U.S. is ripe for new political movement. Granted my knowledge of U.S. politics limited but I think it’s possible to reach wide spectrum of followers from left to right on basic common sense issues. Like raining in the war machine, easing up on Israel support and creating more sensible foreign policy, fighting for free speech, tightening up the immigration situation, perhaps limiting corporate and banking power in Washington and so forth. Needless to say this requires compromise but the outcome could be very good in comparison to status quo for most Americans.

    Perhaps the only possibility is doing this within the framework of the two party system. At least I see no option but to operate within the MSM and/or the big social media companies where the public grazes. The Alt-Right cant even get it’s running shoes on before it’s kicked off the public race track. I just can’t imagine how such movement can rally public support or gain influence. Let alone it’s primary focus on racial issues. How many voters want to see their political end-game play out in todays America?

    But if uncoordinated fringe websites can’t get traction, then the real problem is that there is no coordinated, intelligent movement to “redpill” the “normies.”

    Quite a lot could be done on that front. For example, folks with persuasive skills, techical know-how, and hopefully some financial wherewithal, could be brought together into a Common Front with a uniform mission — to fight the toxic forces of anti-white racism and cultural marxism.

    It would be a sort of high-tech mirror image of the Leftist Common Front of the 1930s. The point would be to put aside ideological disputes on the Right and focus instead on uniting conservatives, libertarians, and non-ideolical “pragmatists” in rejecting and reversing the creeping SJW rot.

    Hispanics do a lot of unsavory things that they don’t actually get arrested or prosecuted for, hence they never show up in the official crime statistics; yet these things form part of the unofficial definition of that which, to a suburban White person, would likely constitute breaches of public order. There is a lot of petty dime-bag dealing, a lot verbal and physical harassment, a lot of graffiti, a lot of littering, disrespect for private and public property, drunken fistfights in the street at 2 AM because somebody screwed somebody else’s wife—things of that nature.

    Then there’s also the fact that many Hispanics work in cash-and-carry businesses where they do not pay taxes, drive without valid licenses or insurance, skip out on their hospital bills, and can conveniently self-deport to Mexico in order to avoid serious trouble, where they are seldom pursued. They are adept at exploiting the technicalities of the legal system to engage in smarmy business deals. The emergence of a cholo rentier class with high-brow money and barrio tastes is one of the more revolting developments to ensue from this phenomenon.

    In general, Hispanics are well positioned to take advantage of the system. They reap the benefits of the local polity without having any stake in that polity or any enforceable responsibilities thereto. They are like the spoiled bastard children of a rich man who are free to do what they please with daddy’s money, while the legitimate son and heir (White people) must bear the weighty burdens of upholding the family honor and protecting the family fortune.

    Much of this stuff is not prosecutable in any practical sense; some of it is not even illegal; but that doesn’t make it right. It still violates everyone’s basic sense of fair play and creates the impression that Hispanics are getting away with something. The whole essence of public order is founded on the reciprocal rights and duties that the individual has vis-a-vis the commonwealth. Hispanics are cheating in this arrangement and everyone knows it, whether it is considered “crime” or not.

    Revolutionaries can be not merely just as bad as the ancien regime — they’re usually worse.

    That does tend to happen. But not always. I think Franco’s regime was infinitely preferable to the Spanish Republic. But Franco was a reactionary revolutionary, aiming not for radical change but to undo and prevent radical change. Pinochet’s coup in Chile was probably a net positive.

    Of course I’m a reactionary so naturally I think reactionary counter-revolutions are a good thing.

    The big difference is that progressive/liberal/marxist/anarchist/globalist revolutionaries have grand plans based mostly on wishful thinking. Reactionary revolutionaries want to go back to the old ways that were proven to work.

    At least the old regime was constrained by a need to at least appear to be honoring the constitutional and religious niceties — nothing the Tsars ever did came close to the barbarities of the Soviets, and the same was true for the Kings of France versus the Revolutionary Terror. Wilhelmine Germany was an ethical paradise compared to the Third Reich.

    Precisely. Which to me is a powerful argument in favour of reactionary counter-revolution.

    So if you’re going to throw all ethical considerations overboard in your pursuit of victory, what will you have left to offer once you do win? Won’t you just be the same fist — but without the velvet glove?

    A valid point, but if you lose you have nothing to offer at all. And the struggle for power is not a cricket match. If you know the other side is going to cheat there’s no umpire to complain to. You either lose or you learn to cheat as well. The struggle for political power is a dirty nasty business.

    The fact that Hispanics comprise 23% of the U.S. prison population while being only 16-17% of the U.S population pretty much proves the point:
    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/01/12/shrinking-gap-between-number-of-blacks-and-whites-in-prison/ft_18-01-10_prisonracegaps_2/

    Whites are underrepresented in the U.S. prison system by a factor of 2. So Hispanic crime rates are roughly 2.75 times higher than those of whites when adjusted for percentages based on the demography of the prison population.

    If Hispanics only comprised 9-10% of the prison population then you might have a point.

    Granted I find your research interesting, but you keep taking very select cases in particular circumstances and, it seems, generalizing way beyond their confines.

    For example, do you deny that Hispanic cities like Los Cabos, Acupulco and Tijuana in Mexico, Caracas in Venezuela, Natal and Fortalez in Brazil, etc. (indeed, the 12 most dangerous cities in the world are entirely Hispanic cities, and if you look at the top 50, the vast majority are Hispanic, the rest are due to Black inhabitants) are vastly more violent than, say, Munich Germany, Rijeka, Croatia or Basel Switzerland (indeed, in the list of safest cities, there are a number from the Middle East, Europe and Japan, but only a single Hispanic city, Mérida, Mexico).

    So will ask again: do you have any real evidence that your assumption that prison population statistics are accurate is true? Have you gone to randomly selected prisons and compared actual Hispanic inmate numbers versus reported Hispanic inmate numbers? Or do you have a (scientific) explanation for why Hispanics in Latin America are the most violent people on the planet, yet suddenly when illegally crossing the border they become the most law abiding?

    Look, if you weren’t so *totally* lazy and had actually read my article, you’d realize that you obviously needed to adjust incarceration rates for *age*. Youngish males commit vastly more serious crime than older people, and Hispanics and whites have *entirely* different age-distribution curves.

    The high incarceration rate for these Caribbean Hispanics may partially explain general perceptions of Hispanic crime rates. A large proportion of America’s intellectual, media, and political elite lives in the Northeast, in cities like New York and Boston, and if the Hispanics traditionally living in those areas have unusually high rates of criminal activity, there would be a natural if mistaken tendency to assume that this same pattern also applied to Hispanic groups throughout the country.

    It might also be a mistake to assume that non-Caribbean Hispanics will exhibit the same crime pattern. The most violent countries in Central America seem to correspond to the highest rate of Mayan ancestry.

    https://tse2.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.gW-OOmDWBfih5dMS25c_hQAAAA&pid=Api

    I’m not an expert on the region, and for all I know the Mayans may be the victims rather than the victimizers. My area of the country doesn’t get as many Hispanic immigrants as California, but I’ve noticed quite a few squat body types when shopping at Wal-Mart the past few years.

    Most of the Caribbean Hispanics in my region are Puerto Ricans. I don’t know what their crime rate is, but they’ve been here for several generations and (with some exceptions, of course) are not following the same pattern of upwardly mobility that other groups of Southern European origin have.

    Costa Rica is a Latin American success story. It has a pretty good government and relatively low levels of crime, but expats and tourists are still advised not to walk around San Jose flashing cameras or expensive jewelry. However, its credit card rates aren’t that much lower if at all from what they are in Mexico, with rates ranging from 24% to 50.4% annually. This suggests high perceived risk and default rates. I posted a few graphics on your other thread about Latino student loan default rates in Los Angeles. If this is more than just a transient pattern, it will ultimately harm our banking system and lower access to credit for everyone. We won’t be able to securitize the problem and export it to our vassal countries indefinitely. In the meantime, 400 million middle class Chinese are wearing sweaters in the winter instead of turning the heat on to save a few more yuan. Their saving rate is astronomical compared to the rest of the world. If it continues, their banks are ultimately going to have a lot more capital to invest than ours.

    In summary, I agree that Trump has overstated the issue of Hispanic crime, but there are broader issues that we should be studying in considering the wisdom of allowing unchecked immigration from Latin America. The tendency to defer gratification or not is probably highly underrated, and like intelligence may not be entirely cultural.

    It was only after the Mexican-American war in 1848 that California finally became part of the USA, and up until this time vast majority of settlers spoke Spanish or were of Mexican heritage. This date was when the California Gold rush brought in hundreds of thousands of Europeans and Yankees from the eastern states.

    Keep in mind, in 1848, it was easier to get to California from Australia than it was from Boston – more than just a few wallabies chased gold too.

  263. @Ron Unz

    One wrinkle I might add to the Hispanic crime question, is whether Hispanic crime has increased the White crime rate.

    In particular, I am thinking of the role that mass Mexican heroin distribution played in the American opioid epidemic, as documented by Sam Quinones in Dreamland. https://www.amazon.com/Dreamland-True-Americas-Opiate-Epidemic-ebook/dp/B00U19DTS0

    Basically, a whole new business model for retail heroin distribution — sort of like a franchise-based Dominos-style delivery service for heroin — was introduced by rural Mexicans (mostly from one from the rural Xalisco region). They deliberately avoided big cities where violent Black gangs already controlled the trade. Instead, they targeted small and mid-size, mostly white, American cities in the middle of the country that were virgin territory.

    The Mexican workers operated in small groups filling phone orders from their handlers. They were just employees working for an hourly or daily wage and had no interest in watering down the product or haggling about price. They were totally non-violent and the whole point was to create a non-threatening, user-friendly mobile delivery service that was attractive to whites who would never think of driving into a ghetto to buy drugs.

    For every dealer nabbed and deported there must have been hundreds of junkies created, each of whom likely went on to commit scores of minor, and not so minor, crimes due to their new status. Apparently, this change in opioid trafficking patterns was so huge that (along with the rampant over-prescription of legal opioids), it has likely shifted the country’s crime patterns significantly.

    Interestingly, although no one seems to dispute the well-documented facts of Quinones’ book, this massive Mexican drug operation seems not to have gotten much play by Trump or the anti-immigration movement. (And, of course, for predicable reasons it is never mentioned in the MSM.)

    In fairness though, the organizers and workers in these metastasizing drug distribution cells were not “immigrants” per se, but recruits sent straight from rural Mexico to do a job and then eventually return to spend their money back home.

    At my public high school in the late 1970s in Orange County, CA, there were about 30 gangster thugs of Mexican descent who terrorized white male students with what are now called hate crimes. The beat-downs of white boys were traumatic and occasionally necessitated an emergency room visit. My school had a bad reputation, but I knew many other white males in San Diego, LA, Ventura/Oxnard, and Santa Barbara County who had the same experience in the 1970s and 1980s. This is not some outlier. Surely you must have heard of similar events–unless you lived a very sheltered existence or were lucky.

    The white victims of this racial violence almost never went to the authorities. The threat of being gravely injured or murdered for snitching kept us quiet and living in fear–kind of like what you probably have seen in prison shows. These hate crimes never hit the statistical records, and I’ll bet that these crimes still largely go unreported. Half the country has been so dumbed down by PC indoctrination that many foolish white liberals rationalize their own victimization.

    In fairness, the hate crimes were perpetrated by a fraction of the school’s Mexican and Mexican American population. It’s worth noting that there were no violent hate crimes by white people against the Mexicans or Mexican Americans at my high school.

    You need to dig deeper than reading crime stats to get the whole picture of ethnic crime and racial hostility. Racial harmony in California is often superficial outside of the corporate walls of Silicon Valley. In your region, I suggest that you take a look at the videos of violence against white Trump supporters in San Jose the night of the Trump rally. The perps were local “cholos”. The victims were all white. Supporting Trump wasn’t the cause of the violence. It was a convenient pretext for the violence. On another night it would have been a different excuse for violence–for instance, they didn’t like a guy’s cowboy boots or whatever.

    The Los Angeles Unified School District has had less than about 15% White (at least at the High School level) for what seems like forever. Basically, Whites send their kids to the local elementary school but when they get to Jr. High (which is bused/integrated), it’s off to private or parochial school. Of course this applies even (especially) to the most liberal Whites. It’s a huge expense on top of the already insane property taxes.

    But aside from this (not small) problem, the Hispanisizing of LA has not been the end of the world.

    Hispanics may not be world-beaters in terms of motivation and ability but they really aren’t that offensive either. They come from a mostly Europeanized Christian culture, they aren’t resentful of whites, and they genuinely like American culture for the most part. We could do way worse — like the Africans and Muslims pouring into Europe.

    Properly classifying prisons by their race/ethnicity is a life-and-death issue

    Maybe so, but not having been in a maximum security prison in California, I have no way to know whether what prison officials put on paper has any bearing on what they do in practice. Indeed, numerous courts have ruled California’s racial/ethnic segregation to be unlawful, so there actually is an incentive to misreport prison population data to make things seem more integrated than they are. I don’t know the answer one way or another, yet you seem entirely certain; my question was whether this certainty of yours has been subjected to scientific inquiry or not. Your response seems to be, “question my methodology and get thrown off my website?” Strange, Ron, that response seems beneath you (or any social scientist).

    The reason I am not convinced by your results is again based on the rather quixotic result that Hispanics, south of the border, are the most violent people on the planet, and somehow, when unlawfully crossing the border, they are the most docile. Perhaps you can give that some thought and either (a) find a scientific explanation for that, or (b) accept the fact that this creates an inconsistency that people will find troubling.

    You’re absolutely right that crime is a young man’s occupation. And it explains the difference in incarceration rates.

    On the other hand, California is now officially the least educated state. We have the highest percentage of adults who didn’t graduate from high school and the highest percentage of adults who didn’t finish 9th grade.

    That’s because of the Hispanics. Some demographics drop out of school to go into a life of crime and perpetual unemployment. The Hispanics go into re food industry from planting and picking construction janitor etc.

    If they later get a GED they get affirmative action government jobs

    2014 to 2016 I had to go to the Santa Clara main courthouse in downtown San Jose several times a year. Virtually every man working in the courthouse except for the attorneys was Asian a few blacks and mostly Hispanics. Most were White hispanics but it’s the last name that got them the affirmative action job.

    We can’t all be theoretical physics geniuses or landlords who don’t have to beg HR gestapos for jobs.

On enterprise software its little tricky, the buyers are spread all over the country but the decision makers in corporate IT debts tend to be real liberal hard asses. Maybe a movement could be started to boycott a company at a time, starting with small and medium sized companies where the owners have more influence and control. The good thing in enterprise software is that almost every company has competition located outside of SV, unlike digital advertisement, while they may not be raging righties, they are not as loony lefties of SV either.

By comparison to the mini-Congo of Detriot, our mesoamericans are splendid neighbors who speak two languages more fluently than the Africans speak just one.

    But our nation isn’t Silicon Valley or Metro Destroyit. These are extreme outliers in fact. Destroyit was the Silicon Valley of the 20th century and much of its vast wealth remains (although moved to Oakland, Macomb, and Washtenaw counties). You essentially live in post-Depression Detriot except your negro problem is across the Bay rather than across 8 Mile Rd. You live in a bubble.

    You correctly see that the African is our most troublesome demographic, but because you’re so insulated from the trials and tribulations of the average white person in say Miami, you don’t appreciate what it means to become a stranger in your own land. You don’t have to learn a foreign language just to get a job as a retail store clerk or work in a warehouse.

    I’m glad you wrote this because it does provide a great insight into the worldview of the Silicon Valley elites who now govern so much of our lives. When you don’t see a problem it’s terribly easy to believe that there is no problem. And if you don’t see it despite the fact that most of your columnists/bloggers and 99% of your commenting community laments it daily, think how oblivious your peers/neighbors are.

    Take a sabbatical. Do the Linh Dinh thing and spend some time as an average Ron in the rest of the country or just live in LA or the Central Valley for a while. You don’t see how atypical Silicon Valley is until you see it contrasted to the rest of the nation. As for your neighbors, I have zero hope they’ll ever get their eyes opened because unlike you they aren’t even interested in anything outside their bubble.

    I think he’s doing it for money. First time I heard of him his speeches were advertised in Jewish community newspapers.
    He claimed to be s former neoNazi heavily involved in plans to kill Rabbis and burn down Jewish buildings. He repented and was now atoning for his sins by warning Jews about the coming Nazi takeover. His speeches weee sponsored by ADL
    It was a total lie of course. But millions of Jewish dollars poured into ADL

  280. From the other side of the Atlantic it is not easy to see or understand quite well what’s going on in the USA.
    That I was shocked when I read the wiki story about how in Charlotteville someone drove into a crowd of demonstrators makes this clear.
    What exactly Alt Right is, I just have a vague idea.

    But I did notice in 2004 or so in Florida how the USA there differs from the USA in the north, that is from Seattle to Minneapolis.
    Speaking english in Miami leads to being ignored by spanish speaking people.
    The USA of course began, after the original inhabitants had disappeared, one way or another, as a white colony, that later made itself independent of especially GB.
    The USA aristocracy consists of those related to anyone on the Mayflower.
    Having a far away ancestor who also signed the Declaration of Independence also makes you a real American.

    This white supremacy now is challenged, by those of immigrant background, and those who, I suppose, expect to get political advantages through diminishing white influence.
    Of course, the whites who see this happening, and foresee what will happen, resist.
    There in fact is, in my opinion, not much diffference with the Hutu Tutsi conflict, the Algerian war, where the pied noirs had to flee, or the Tsjechs driving out the Sudeten Germans.
    Where all this will lead to, I wonder.

    Here in Europe more and more people understand how w’re losing our cultures, but, as in the USA, the Open Society Gutmenschen still are quite busy in keeping doors open, or even opening more doors, Marrakech.

    About media

    Now most sensible people somewhat weigh the reality presented in the MSM against what they actually experience in their day-to-day lives, and if there’s a sharp divergence between the two, they may gradually become suspicious of the MSM, and begin turning to alternate sources of information,

    My doubts about our quality media began around 1994, the Rabin murder.
    Until then I was behind the holocaust survivors, who clearly needed an own country, who had to defend themselves against Paletinians, just blood thirsty Arab terrorists.
    But the murder of Rabin, after the Oslo peace accords, by an orthodox jew, 1994 or so, made me wonder ‘do these jews want peace ?’.
    So indeed I turned to alternate sources, and discovered how I had been fooled for many decades.
    Sept 11 was the next shock, by now the ideas I had before 1994 about history since, say 1870, have been turned upside down

    We whites grew up in a world where white supremacy was not challenged, we felt so sure of ourselves that opening our countries for non white, and/or non christian immigrants, was the right thing to do.
    Guilt feelings fed into the Germans since 1945 caused that the concept Gutmensch is a German concept.
    Germans can be pardoned for their sins by receiving large numbers of immigrants.

    From feelings of superiority, and ideals of a better world, to understanding that w’re under siege, is a near impossible change in mindset.
    Yet, in my opinion, only this change can save European civilisation.
    But, if the six percent whites can succeed in maintaining themselves, I’m not sure they can on their own.

    Since reading recently
    Gustave E. von Grunebaum, ‘Medieval Islam, A Study in Cultural Orientation’, Chicago, 1946, 1971
    I concluded that Islam is incompatible with western societies.
    Before reading this book I was not so negative about Islam.
    Islam, as judaism, completely controls each individual life.

    There is a weird consequence, in my opinion, the Islam as described in the mentioned book is a great help for us to withstand Islam.
    Islamic society is static, as anything is already n the Quran, including science, Islamic society cannot adapt itself to changing circumstances.

    Around 1900 the Ottoman empire began to change, industrialisation etc, but far too late.
    Christianity was not much better than Islam, but the great advantage of christianity was and is all the different interpretations of what christianity is, in other words, we were used to debate, and forming our own ideas.

    Yet, until Galileo christianity also succeeded in resisting change, scientific change.
    The great misunderstanding about the Renaissance is that there never was a renaissance of technical change.
    As far as I know there was far less technical development in Islamic societies.

    Thorkild Schioler, ‘Roman and Islamic water lifting wheels’, Odense University Press 1973 describes ancient Islamic irrigation systems.
    Driving in India in the mid seventies we could see all the described methods still in use.
    It is fair to add that in the absence of cheap energy it of course was difficult to find new methods.
    Nevertheless, the western urge to improve seems far less in Islamic societies.

    Allow me to use your reference to the innumeracy problem as a hook to grab your attention.

    Mostly so I can mention again Peter Thiel and his Australian lawyer (apparently my neighbour) Aron D’Souza as possible allies for you in the fight against deplatforming. Yours is a very big country and I was sorry to have to believe that even with your record you mightn’t be given the time of day by a Mark Zuckerberg or his senior executives. I hope you will consider Thiel as possibly a credible and welcoming alternative ally. (A silly idea maybe, but if I had D’Souza’s address I could probably knock on his front door and be let in…).

    The numeracy hook that I mentioned followed from my lifelong, and undiminishing, amazement at the innumeracy of people who are supposed to be quite intelligent affecting almost everything important in the public sphere and almost as often in the private. Nothing to do with being humbled (as I was at 12) by reading about the young Carl Friedrich Gauss but just the problem with numbers and simple concepts like compound interest extending in my speculative view to the failure e.g. for Australian politicians and associated goodthinkers to ask elementary questions about why it is supposed to be a good idea to make the country with the world’s cheapest caseload power into just about the most expensive….

    My speculative “Just So Story” is that our ancestors, for 200,000 years of growing up Sapiens didn’t need numbers. I remember reading of primitive tribes today – in Africa and Amazonia I think – who only count 1, 2, Many – though I can imagine they would sometimes flash their fingers to indicate “about 5″ or ” about 10″. I am not sure that it is a useful insight, even if it is a true one, but it should at least add strength to battles to counter innumeracy as if it were a fault as deep seated as Original Sin.

    The clear problem is that Mexicans vote in mass, for one party. California is already a one-party state. Mexico was controlled by one party for 50 or more years – NEVER well. The Indian Mexicans voted for the elite whites who suppressed them, for over 50 years straight. Something is major wrong, something that America does not need.

    One party is no way to run a democracy. In fact, one party rule is not a democracy. That is a sure way to a becoming a dysfunctional dictatorial state.

    Between the Jew MSM, an education system that refuses to teach America history, and the college educated white elite establishment – the Mexican immigrants are ill informed.

    Look around the world – not every group of people can function in a democracy. It takes a select group of independent minded individuals with a fairness mentality to achieve democracy.

    My sleepy hometown of Selma, California, is in the dead center of all this. The once rural San Joaquin Valley community has grown from 7,000 to nearly 20,000 in a mere two decades, as a result of mostly illegal immigration from Mexico. Selma is now somewhere between 60 and 90 percent Hispanic. How many are U.S. citizens is either not known or not publicly disclosed: but of all those admitted legally from Mexico to the United States since 1982, only 20 percent had become citizens by 1997. Some local schools, like the one I went to two miles from our farm, are 90 percent first-generation Mexican immigrants. At the service station a mile away, I rarely hear English spoken; almost every car that pulls in displays a Mexican flag decal pasted somewhere.

    To contrast the Selma I live in today with the Selma I grew up in will doubtless seem hopelessly nostalgic. But the point of the contrast is not merely that 40 years ago our community was only 40 or 50 percent Mexican, but rather that the immigrants then were mostly here legally. Crime was far rarer: the hit-and-run accidents, auto theft, drug manufacturing and sale, murders, rapes, and armed robberies that are now customary were then nearly nonexistent. Fights that now end in semi-automatic-weapon fire were settled with knives then.

    I used to worry over the theft of a tractor battery. Yet in the last decade, I have run off at gunpoint three gang members trying to force their way into our house at 3 am. Last year, four patrol cars—accompanied by a helicopter whirling overhead—chased drug dealers in hot pursuit through our driveway. One suspect escaped and turned up two hours later hiding behind a hedge on our lawn, vainly seeking sanctuary from a sure prison term. When a carload of thieves tried to steal oranges from our yard, I soon found myself outmanned and outgunned—and decided that 100 pounds of pilfered fruit is not worth your life.

    It is a schizophrenic existence, living at illegal immigration’s intersection. Each week I pick up trash, dirty diapers, even sofas and old beds dumped in our orchard by illegal aliens—only to call a Mexican-American sheriff who empathizes when I show him the evidence of Spanish names and addresses on bills and letters scattered among the trash. So far I have caught more than 15 illegal dumpers, all Mexican, in the act. In the last 20 years, four cars piloted by intoxicated illegal aliens have veered off the road into our vineyard, causing thousands of dollars in unrecompensed damage. The drivers simply limped away and disappeared. The police sighed, “No license, no insurance, no registration” (“the three noes”), and towed out their car.

I have known far too many people who can’t get a job because they can’t speak Spanish. Once you get a critical mass of Latino’s both legal and illegal they refuse to deal with non Spanish speakers. This is something the black community has been complaining about for decades in the Miami area. I have been told many times I need to learn Spanish. I work with a lot of refugees. Nice people and very aggressive. They had to be to get here. They want my job and they will work as a group until they get one of their people in. They will work as group to get politicians eating out of their hands all the while complaining about the white racists. My property taxes go about 10% a year. In Texas that is mostly for education and it prevents me from retiring. A lot of the money goes to teaching kids English or for school lunch programs programs that go on year round. For the schools to pass EEOC muster so many Hispanics and so many blacks have to pass. This means the Non-Minorities get short changed.

    I not against immigration because of the people involved, it is because they are taking money out of my pocket and preventing me from enjoying the fruits of my labors.

    I could go on for while but I want to point out that while I am considered White my parents weren’t, they were Irish who grew up in New England. They had to contend with ” No Irish Need Apply” signs. My mother couldn’t get into the Sorority she wanted to because she had the freckled skin.

    Ron, I have never lived in CA, though my kids do, but I have been visiting there for exactly 50 years, and Caliifornia has gotten a lot worse during that period, pretty much across the board…It has gotten worse financially, politically, educationally and environmentally…e.g.Beautiful areas on the south coast have been overrun by developers..California schools, both secondary and University, have been overrun by cultural Marxists..Most cities are facing bankruptcy due to the costs of pensions, healthcare, and the flocks of illegals and homeless who have been invited in by your politicians..I don’t see any area, apart from the jobs created by software development, that has not deteriorated…Please explain to me why I am wrong….

    Sharia law threat to the West is a nonsense.

    No, it’s not. There is virtually no resistance at the top to the imposition of shari’a on us. Consider this incident, in which a Muslim professor at the University of Connecticut demanded that students take their shoes off before entering his office and that they say “Bismillah”:

    https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11025

    That would have been unthinkable when I was young, either because our elites were Christian and resented anything non-Christian or because they were secularists who strongly believed in the separation of religion and state. Today, it can happen because resistance to anything Islamic is very weak among our elites.

    It is easy enough to imagine that twenty years from now, things will be even worse, that there will be immense pressure for everyone to convert. “It’s the least you can do after all the oppression our country has inflicted on Islamic lands.”

    american white males are too intimidated by the police state and potential imprisonment and prison rape to be really revolutionary …french white males are not as cowardly…see e.g., the recent yellow vest riots where french white males rolled out mock guillotines, effectively telling their elites ‘obey or die’…americans are so bound down by fear of the legal system, they are powerless…they even fear to subvert the race preferences system by claiming nonwhite ancestry, something they could do without fear of reprisals….but they are like domesticated livestock…

    me, I say that elites must hang from ropes…it is not illegal to say that ….in order to be illegal it must be specific and imminent…and that is not the case here…

    I agree that many modern revolutionaries are not near the center of the bell curve with respect to mental hygiene…so what? They have less to lose and they have suffered many frustrations….so therefore are more likely to rebel…

    In Ireland, there seems to have been 2 or more kinds of IRA (Irish Republican Army) freedom fighters / terrorists. The one was the genuine kind created to free all of Ireland of British rule and the other kind was created by the British themselves to draw support from the original organization and so nullify the actual threat; to subdue, subvert, confuse, divide and rule so to speak. It really seemed like there were SAS missions in support of all the different IRA’s at different times, very confusing.

    So now you have the right wing and the alt-right. The alt-right was created by the powers that be to draw support from the right wing proper, to subdue, subvert, confuse, divide and rule all those who might lean to the right wing proper. So its the alt-right’s job to sprout some right wing proper views every now and then, but its also their job to come across as being nuts and over the top, like clowns, very entertaining, very distracting, so that no-one will take any traditional right wing viewpoint seriously.

    So the alt-right is just counter revolutionary tactics.

    Look, if you weren’t so *totally* lazy and had actually read my article, you’d realize that you obviously needed to adjust incarceration rates for *age*.

    I read it awhile ago and it’s so long and meandering I’m not going to torture myself again. While it has its moments it’s pretty clear you have an agenda you’re trying to promote and prove that black is white. Well, brown is white.

    Youngish males commit vastly more serious crime than older people, and Hispanics and whites have *entirely* different age-distribution curves.

    That’s not really a revelation, but the typical white American doesn’t give a crap about age distribution curves. When Hispanics bring higher crime, gang activity and drug trafficking to a white locale the locals don’t console themselves with your article and the fact that the brown interlopers will likely outgrow it in twenty years. And even if they do outgrow it they reproduce and the crime cycle starts all over again.

    I could prove that black crime rates are approximate to white crime rates but would have to pull an Unz age distribution curve sleight of hand and throw out all crime committed by blacks in the age ranges of 12-50.

    Maybe you should just go back to just looking at all the cartoon frogs on 4chan…

    The Dutch writer Douwes Dekker in the 19th century under the nom de plume Multatuli severely criticised Dutch rule in what now is Indonesia.
    There is no reason to be proud on how we ruled there at the time.

    Many of the people deplatforming you claim you’re spreading lies and you reply “Yes, indeed! But telling ridiculous lies is a central part of our brilliant political strategy!”

    You just told a (((big lie))). Who on the racialist right admitted they are telling lies as part of some broader political strategy? If someone did they are speaking only for themselves.

    In almost every case the deplatforming has occurred because the left is losing the argument and the facts presented by the racialist and anti-semitic right can’t be contradicted except with lies, distortions, shadow banning and deplatforming.

    Silicon Valley’s claim that they are simply banning “ridiculous lies” or “hate” is just a flimsy pretext to persecute and punish the political opposition. It’s pretty easy to create fake narratives and win the argument when you have no opposition and that’s what Silicon Valley is doing.

    Living in California I definitely agree with you Ron that the replacement of blacks with Hispanics is all good. The best thing isn’t the crime stats. The best thing is the replacement of disfunctional surly black government workers by competent polite Hispanics

    I got so used to government black’s dysfunction I was astonished at how things improved when affirmative action preference decreed Hispanic government workers.

    After all, why are most of you commenting on my website? Basically, it’s because you’ve been banned or deplatformed almost everywhere else.

    Well, I haven’t been banned or deplatformed anywhere, because all I am is a reader who stumbled upon your wonderful work here a few years ago.

    Immigration became a bigger, more public issue at about that same time. I have always said that I am not a trendsetter but an ordinary man who tends to discover things at just the time that they are about to become big. That is what happened.

    My argument is that I would like to see all forms of immigration into the United States reduced — and to see foreign imports similarly curtailed.

    Why do I think this way? Well, I have seen the population of my country go from below 200 million to way above 300 million from the time I was in middle school. I remember the ZPG Zero Population Growth idea; I earned extra credit in 7th grade math class by plotting and projecting population into future decades. The teacher put my hyperbolic graph on the wall for everyone to see, and I earned the highest number of grade points that year.

    Whatever you call the Alt-Right would do well to just focus on total immigration as part of global population management, quality of life, and environment. My personal, anecdotal view is that the additional 60%, more than 100 million people, of American population has not improved my life at all. Everywhere I have inhabited is more crowded and more expensive.

    At the same time, products are increasingly foreign made, so that when I purchase them, I am not helping my neighbors at all, unless they happen to be the wealthy ones here in Fairfield County, CT who manufacture and import things from East Asia. (I have known one or two of those.)

    The “alt right” is just yet another manifestation of the Hegelian dialectic scam.

    You know, the old”divide and conquer” routine. It still works very well, obviously :-).

    It [ the “alt-right”] assumes government solutions to problems; that is, to problems originally caused by government itself.

    The excuse given boils down to “it was all the fault of the bad democrats”, so we now need “good” Republicans to fix everything the bad democrats did – and Trumps the guy to do it.

    This just in:

    there are no government solutions to _any_ problem, regardless of whether its “left wing” “right wing”, or “alt. right”!

    Why? : “Because they are all ultimately funded via both direct and indirect theft [taxes], and counterfeiting [central bank monopolies], all governments are essentially, at their very cores, 100% corrupt criminal scams which cannot be “reformed”,”improved”, nor “limited” in scope, simply because of their innate criminal nature.”

    He didn’t drive his car into a crowd. Under US law, the rule of thumb is that your life is threatened when you are in a car and an assailant breaks the physical barrier (a car window for example) that separates the two of you. By the same token, a mob is a deadly threat to life, the more so if it’s actively assaulting you. People under deadly threat are considered likely to be panicked and try to blindly flee, in which case they aren’t even guilty of homicide, as both intent and control are absent.

    The Left mobbed the man’s car, one of them broke a window. The man pushed the accelerator (to flee a deadly threat) and was blocked by yet _another_ mob filling the street in violation of local law, and this mob also attacked. He braked and then backed up. A person in the second mob died of a heart attack, apparently from the excitement.

    So: Man is subject to deadly force, flees, is subject to second deadly force, flees again, one of the second assaulting mob dies from heart attack (apparently without contacting the car), and _the victim of assault is convicted of murder 1. And you’re told he “drove his car into a crowd”.

    First of all, the so-called “alt-Right”….. the leaders are all either Israeli or Russian operatives. Most are Jews. Their purpose is to brand those who aren’t communists (or socialists as modern communists like to sell themselves) as Nazis. Pretty simple, no thinking required.

    The U.S. has had a MAJOR illegal immigration problem for decades. Most from Mexico. These are unskilled, low-IQ, very unhealthy and untrainable men and pregnant women, also low-IQ, unskilled and unhealthy, many already have children, and young thuggish gangster wanna-be’s. Sure, a small percentage are not, but that is a VERY small percentage.

    As a native Californian, born in 1963, I can tell you that the people of California used to be intelligent people who were fair minded and possessed a high level of integrity. That is no longer the case. Most Californians are now stupid degenerates. Granted, this has been largely due to vaccines and the communistic education system. Hollywood is largely to blame. Most Californians are TV zombies who’s entire lives evolve around the filth produced by Hollywood Jews.

    California is now a complete disaster. Just look at the numbers. Do your own research. This a direct result of communist/globalist policies and illegal immigration from MEXICO.

    Honestly, there is too much to address here without writing a lengthy article. So I’ll say that these ‘leftists’ are the bigots, racists and misandrists.

    All one need do is observe all the hatefulness directed at European-American men whom are lumped in with Jewish-American men just because we are “white”. Can you say Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, Jeffery Epstein…. ?

    “White” means nothing. There is no “white” race. There are white people all over the world. Israel, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, the list goes on and on. None of the afore mentioned are of European descent.

    The U.S. is a colony of Israel and the Soviet Union (dba Russia)….. Thanks to people like Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Diane Feinstein, Lyndon Johnson and Franklyn Rosenfeld (Roosevelt in Dutch).

    Place the blame where it belongs. We European men are really sick of being blamed for the actions and crimes of communists and Jews.

Does anyone in their right mind think that Japan would be better off if 40% of its population was Mestizo? For all the talk about Jews and Blacks, the Mestizo invasion is by far the most immediate threat to white demographics in this country. That you seem to deliberately minimize this threat is very disconcerting. You may have some good Mestizo friends or maybe a Mestizo partner, but that can’t bias your work.

    3. Aside from crime, Mestizos have lower IQs (or at least score far lower than whites on SATs, ACTs, PISA, etc.), vote Democrat in high percentages, and consume a disproportionate amount of welfare.

I honestly think that despite common misconception, the American government is among the most corrupt in the world. We don’t see it due to all the money in the system, but it is definitely there.

    I don’t think there is anything that can realistically be done except perhaps some campaign to reduce their profit margins so foreign competition can come in. Perhaps this could start at the state level. Example: let the Chinese sell mobile phones here under certain circumstances (use of open source operating systems), although that would be difficult to sneak by the federal government. Alternatively, we might consider right to repair laws at the state and local level targeting Apple. We could also encourage local and state governments to require payment processors and banks to deal with people and not discriminate based on legally protected speech.

  345. I always wondered why Ron allowed speech that he clearly disagrees with. I never really believed that he did so out of a love of free speech, and I still don’t. He could be tracking and reporting, but I wouldn’t know that. I guess he just thinks he’s allowing us to make fools of ourselves in public. In that case, I have to say that he is at least as out of touch with much of America, as he claims members of the “alt-right and others” are.

    I seriously doubt that Ron knows anything about West Virginia, West Virginians, or the impact of immigration upon small towns in red states. I don’t know much about West Virginia, either, but the South and Midwest have been flooded with immigrants, right down to the smallest of towns, and they apparently aren’t the types of immigrants that Ron claims are in silicon valley. The impact is mostly increased crime, worsening of schools, destruction of neighborhoods, increased welfare, introduction/reintroduction of infectious diseases, etc.

    I’m sort of confused about what Ron claims, since much of the news coming out of California these days is bad, and much of it is related to immigration. Is it not true that California schools are now among the worst in the nation? The penal system that was supposedly a model in the 70s is now a wreck. Housing that was once a great buy for average families is now outrageous. The identity politics and radicalism coming from California seems as insane to outsiders as the reaction from others seems to you. Is it not true that the massive increase in population in the West and SW over the last 50 years, much due to immigration, has had a very negative environmental impact? If most or all of the bad news is really true, and it appears to be true, the good news that Ron speaks of is that a few ultra-wealthy people have managed to create a bubble in a small area, and ignore the welfare and wishes of their fellow citizens in other areas of the nation. How good is that?

    The truth is that everyone knows that all the power is aligned in one direction. Who is supposed to be surprised by that? We all know that we are being tracked and recorded. That is no big surprise. It’s also no big surprise that there are many traitors who put the interests of foreigners above those of traditional Americans. (Ron is ignoring the anti-White politics of the Left, in order to paint the alt-right, and others as crazy). Everyone knows what the political situation is, and I seriously doubt that the pure minded, superior intellects of Silicon Valley are blind themselves–they seem to be driving the identity politics, and their immigrant lackeys understand as much.

    I don’t know a thing about Silicon Valley, but I have never seen a neighborhood that didn’t decline significantly after hispanics took over from whites. Either way, why does Ron support demographic and cultural change? What’s wrong with allowing whites to keep their culture, nation and demographics?

    Are you all discussing Victor Davis Hanson? He’s such a hypocrite. He’s a Central Valley farmer. So were his parents grandparents and probably great grandparents.

    Of all the groups responsible for bringing low skill Hispanics to California it’s farmers. It’s like Detroit auto company CEOs complaining that the blacks they recruited for their factories ruined Detroit.

    He has a completely false anecdote on today’s, 12-26 Free Republic. He claims he was at Walmart and saw a young woman struggling to put a large screen TV in her car. He went to help her and saw she was holding an EBT card in her hand. So he scolded her for buying the TV with food stamps.

    The story is obviously false for several reasons

    1 Woman have purses. Even if we don’t put cards away in our wallets we can drop them in the purse if we’re dealing with shopping carts packages kids etc.

    2 She was struggling with a large screen TV. How is it possible for a woman struggling with a large screen TV to also carry a small card in her hand?

    3. I’ve never shopped at a Walmart but generally stores have someone help customers put large objects in their cars.

    4 He scolded her for using the food stamp card to buy the TV. FYI Victor, the EBT card which you claimed you saw has 2 accounts on it.

    One is for cash welfare benefits. The other is for food only. The cash is to use for anything they choose: from paying the gas and electricity bill shoes for the kids and yes a large screen TV.

    Virtually every household in the US has a TV.

    Hanson made the whole thing up. Women have small hands and Hispanics have smaller hands than Whites and short fingers. How could anyone try to put a large screen TV in a car and hold a card at the same time?

    He’s as bad as the liberals who make up the stories about their 6 year olds crying about how Trump wants to kill their black best friend st school.

    “All white peoples around the world are threatened by simple biological extinction due to loss of homelands where we can securely live and breed, competition from non-white invaders.”

    This statement is not even remotely true. White people are still having children. and there is no systematic effort on the part of a government that calls for open season this race. Moreover, whites have not experiencing a “loss of homelands”.

    “White” means nothing. There is no “white” race. There are white people all over the world. Israel, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, the list goes on and on. None of the afore mentioned are of European descent.

    White in the USA I interpret as being culturally European.
    Race is a hazy concept, as Houston Chamberlain admits.
    Yet he was of the opinion that Europaan success, world domination, could be explained by race.
    The, in my opinion right explanations, just use geophysical and evolutionary facts.

    Overall an excellent article. Thank you for your writing and your webzine. I agree that the alt-right is doomed and that engaging in self destructive behavior won’t help. I particularly appreciated your characterization of the, “…very politically unsophisticated” nature of the Lords of Silicon Valley. In my view this describes substantially all of the US population. In fact, leftist white politicians who cheer immigrants as potential voters are putting themselves out of business. Immigrants will likely vote for their own kind. The example of the Irish in the big cities might be of interest in this regard.

    As one who has tried, for the last fifty years, to understand history, economics, finance, war and civilization, or lack of same, I have concluded that we humans will continue to blunder into the future, riding the cycles of history until the end of time. For years I carried hope that we could learn, but there is little evidence that humanity, which will keep doing the same thing over and over, can attain a different outcome.

    I will say that watching my white race be replaced makes me sad, even though we blew the chance to make a fresh republic work and are not good stewards of the legacy of western thought, technology and civilization and deserve what we are going to get. You indicate that the white worry about being replaced is overblown. I personally disagree and great thinkers including Walter Williams and Ludwig von Mises have noted that multicultural societies are unstable. We are certainly going to find out by the greatest more-or-less peaceful population mixing experiment ever.

    There is one other nit I want to pick with the article. A vast difference exists between the behavior of a few high-performing Muslims and Islam itself. Please pick up a copy of the book, “Catastraphic Failure” by Patrick Coughlin and visit the cspipublishing. com website for analysis.

    Well, the starting point is to face the fact that WASP culture is the finalized product of a Judaizing heresy, which also spurred people to start the slow process of rediscovering pagan Germanic ancestry, which means that, generally, WASP culture is, and always has been, a vanguard against anything to do with Christendom and against all white peoples perceived to be more orthodoxly Christian and/or more culturally conservative than the WASPs, the Modern English.

    More specifically, because of the Protestant Judaizing that was a major feature of Anglo-Saxon Puritanism (which survives most obviously today in the form of ardently Zionist Evangelicals), certainly the elites of WASP culture have always acted to facilitate Jewish interests at the expense of the vast majority of whites ruled by those WASPs.

    It is the opposite of an inexplicable accident that the entire Anglosphere is filled with Jews of super wealth and status who openly despise almost all white ethnic groups and whose group makes even the wealthiest WASP Elites dance to the specifically Jewish tunes.

    Until that is understood, nothing said or done about any of the other specifics about which you ask is better than spitting into the wind.

    Ron, I have never lived in CA, though my kids do, but I have been visiting there for exactly 50 years, and Caliifornia has gotten a lot worse during that period, pretty much across the board…It has gotten worse financially, politically, educationally and environmentally…e.g.Beautiful areas on the south coast have been overrun by developers..California schools, both secondary and University, have been overrun by cultural Marxists..Most cities are facing bankruptcy due to the costs of pensions, healthcare, and the flocks of illegals and homeless who have been invited in by your politicians..I don’t see any area, apart from the jobs created by software development, that has not deteriorated…Please explain to me why I am wrong….

    Well, as I recounted at length in the comment to which you’re replying, I think some things have gotten better in CA, but more things have gotten worse. Probably the biggest negative factors have been due to the doubling of the state’s population, which obviously explains many of your complaints.

    However, CA is actually doing pretty well fiscally right now, with gigantic budget surpluses (though everyone knows those will disappear once the Dot Com 2.0 bubble bursts). I’d guess CA is better off than most, maybe almost all of the other large states.

    But the local city pension problems are mostly due to the political clout of the (mostly white) police and fire unions, whose political endorsements are enormously influential with both white and non-white voters. That leads politicians to give away the store. For example, in the Silicon Valley area, large numbers of police/fire employees earn $250K or even almost $300K per year in wages and benefits, which is just totally ridiculous. The newspapers are always denouncing this scandalous situation, but few voters read newspapers. It’s a major problem but I just don’t see what it has to do with immigrants, illegal or otherwise.

    I’ve never been deplatformed anywhere else.

    Many of the people deplatforming you claim you’re spreading lies and you reply “Yes, indeed! But telling ridiculous lies is a central part of our brilliant political strategy!”

    The Alt-Right does tell a lot of ridiculous lies. HBD, Heartistian game theory, and the idea that 9-11 was a false flag perpetrated by the US Deep State and/or Israel are all ridiculous lies. Virtually anything predicated on an underlying acceptance of modern Neo-Darwinian theory or genetics is ipso fact0 a ridiculous lie. The malevolent omnipotence attributed to Jews by connoisseurs of the JQ is a ridiculous lie (and therewith is most of your own “American Pravda” series). And the fact that the “mainstream” treatments of these same topics are also ridiculous lies does not excuse the lies told by the Alt-Right.

    But the tragedy is not that Alt-Right is consciously lying as part of some Machiavellian political strategy; the tragedy is that the Alt-Right really believes all this bullshit.

    The so-called Alt-Right is making a gong show out of a necessary reactionary political movement that cannot afford to fail. That is the reason I comment here. I am here to put race realism, nationalism, and the traditional ordering of society on a sound metaphysical foundation. I am here to uphold the cross of Christ and the Holy Catholic Church as the sole means of combating the degradation of our culture. I am here to make straight the way of the Lord and of the Caesar, who wields not the sword in vain. I am here not to praise the West but to bury it, for all that is of the Left is “Western” now, and those old bottles cannot hold the new wine.

    And I am here mostly because I can do nothing else. This is where fate has placed me and this is where I must stand or fall. Even if I had been deplatformed elsewhere, that would be irrelevant. The truth must make do, and can make do, with or without platforms. All that matters as far as the individual is concerned is making good use of the means available. Better he could not do.

    It’s entirely possible. There are two things that those in the know have long accepted that point to at least a number of the ‘alt-right’ lightning rods being on the payrolls of either a US government agency or a Leftist group with deep pockets or both. One is that the vast majority of the most openly violent Irish nationalists (the ones who called for expelling all Protestants, for example) were paid by the British Empire. The other is that at least half of the truly incendiary KKK-types in the US after WW2 were paid by government.

    I read it awhile ago and it’s so long and meandering I’m not going to torture myself again. While it has its moments it’s pretty clear you have an agenda you’re trying to promote and prove that black is white.

    Okay, I guess all my “numbers & stuff” just make your head spin, so I won’t bother citing them.

    The problem that you and so many other commenters have is that you tend to rely upon pundits like Victor Davis Hanson and Ann Coulter, who are basically just dishonest propagandists. People like them just say things that will (A) maximize their personal revenue while (B) minimizing their risk of getting purged. The combination of those two goals sometimes produces truth, but more often dishonesty.

    Since you’re obviously a real hard-core rightwinger, let me suggest you spend a couple of weeks exploring a far less dishonest media source, namely the (Neo-Nazi) Daily Stormer. As you probably know, the Stormer has suffered the world’s most severe deplatforming, yet still has far greater traffic than all the other Alt-Right websites combined. And since it’s already been so totally purged, it doesn’t need to be dishonest.

    Now the Stormer doesn’t exactly like Hispanics or other non-white immigrants, and it absolutely loves focusing on non-white crime, especially against whites. But when I’ve occasionally gone there, I’ve noticed that stories about serious black crime are about 5-6x more frequent than stories about Hispanic crime. And I really, really doubt that the Stormer is being bribed by La Raza or otherwise covering up Hispanic crime. They’d love to have more stories about horrible Hispanic crimes, but just can’t find very much, aside from a wife stabbing her cheating husband or that sort of thing.

    Since the Hispanic population is almost 50% larger than the black population, that suggests that blacks have something 7-8x the serious crime rates of Hispanics. By an absolutely astonishing coincidence, that’s pretty much what all my “numbers & stuff” also indicates. So don’t take my namby-pampy wimp-nerd word for it—trust the Stormer instead!

    My point was that housing costs are insanely high in Silicon Valley, which is why an immigrant family that can “only” afford to pay $1,900/month is on the brink of homelessness.

    “Things have gotten better in California”. Is that a Gated Community perspective? The river I fish regularly is fringed by shores lined with homeless tents. Lately, the city has forced those people out of view from the river, so tourists aboard excursion boats won’t witness your nirvana during their cruise. You don’t even have to reach the water to see how Moonbeam’s Economic Miracle has created caravans of RV occupants who live in their vans and motor homes. Try venturing to Fresno’s South Side, where the warehouse district streets are crowded with tents and ramshackle shelters for several blocks. If you’re averse to travel, right up the road is San Francisco, where the burgeoning homeless population defecates in the streets, and hypodermics are discarded in the gutters. Yes, things have gotten better in California, because all those people and businesses moving out of the state have made room for more of your ‘improvements’.

  377. the problem with mr. unz’s premise, i.e., the alt-right’s hyperbolic flourishing is off-putting to decent, ordinary californians/americans , is merely one of statistical demographic reality.

    “assimilation” in america means biding one’s time until one is the majority voting bloc and then unleashing retributive hell on the unsuspecting indigenous population. ocasio-cortez is a prime example of such. no one that pathetically stupid could get elected except in a district in which the primary voting bloc was minority.

    furthermore, mr. unz’s premise presupposes that times will always be tranquil. the watts/l.a. riots should awaken even the most egalitarian lifeforms to the fact that when the merde hits the proverbial fan the atavistic proclivities of minority inhabitants is to inflict vengeance upon their white cohabitants.

    given the chance blacks kill whites, muslims kill christians, gentiles kill jews, jews kill christians/gentiles, northerners kill southerners, the strong kill the weak. this has been ongoing since time immemorial. the u.s. has been blessed with 160 years of peace and prosperity. this is an anomaly, historically speaking, and when times revert to a more historically representative model, the prosaic life of silicon valley techies will quickly resemble the steppes of outer mongolia just before genghis khan’s sanguinary arrival upon the scene.

    It is true that the Hispanics moving here are in the main soft-spoken and law-abiding people, but their presence – and their natural desire to be close to others of their own nationalities – has changed life in my community greatly for everyone. Our local library newsletter, for example, now comes with a Spanish translation. How does that help build a stronger community?

Americans must awaken to the reality that we’re embroiled in Global Conflicts, Global Trade, Global Governments etc. because we’re under the yoke of L-I-B-E-R-A-L-S!

  386. This case study on race and California is interesting in and of itself, but I don’t see how it is a response to the Alt Right’s main arguments. It isn’t really relevant to the conversation those in the Alt Right are trying to foster.

    The big issue of our time, from a demographics standpoint, is forced migration on a massive scale. I.e. what we see blighting Sweden, Germany, France, England, and other Western European nations. In these countries, as Douglas Murray points out in his book The Strange Death of Europe, the native peoples have voted overwhelmingly, generation after generation, to restrict immigration. The elites do not care and force it upon the people anyway. This is only happening in [first world = white] countries. Couple this with the extreme animosity towards whites in the media, the double standards, the interracial crime, and a host of other societal changes and it should be pretty clear to an observant white person what the underlying pattern in all of this is, and what their choices are. Either go along with it like a good little goy and see your people wiped out, or do something. Mexicans and Muslims not being as violent as blacks is not only obvious to everybody, but irrelevant to the greater picture from the white perspective. The recent UN Migration Pact makes the agenda about as blatant as it can be – so which way, western man?

    The bottom line is that the event-space of world history is spanned by competing wills. If your willpower is strong enough, maybe you can change the world. If a large group of people want to will something to be, that’s powerful. And so, we have this idea of the white ethnostate. It’s unavoidable now, the genie is out of the bottle. We are still in the information-spreading phase, and we need to push to make this idea a greater part of the zeitgeist. Regardless of what the dissident Jew Ron Unz has to say about crime statistics in California, enough white people are soon going to realize that they are the only ones who don’t get to choose whether or not they get to live in a society where other people share their own culture and values, and enough of them are going to care about this to do something about it. It doesn’t matter whether in California there’s relative peace or not, as there are enough people that wouldn’t choose that scenario anyway and aren’t going to go along with globalization and forced migration.

    The biggest problem I see with using California as your example of a multikulti utopia is that it isn’t demographically homogeneous yet. Many whites who would harbor more nationalist leanings have already fled the state, and others are concentrated in the rural areas. The minority of whites who live in the uber-liberal areas like Palo Alto are too far gone ideologically and can’t be helped. They aren’t having large enough families to maintain their percentage of the population anyway.

    Any sincere discussion of Charlottesville or the Alt Right must also include talk of false flags, even though it immediately disenfranchises the subset of people who are bad at entertaining novel ideas and unlikely scenarios – the ones who scoff at 9/11 truthers for example, even though these black swan events have been drivers of history for centuries. I’ve seen no direct evidence that Heather Heyer died as a result of the Dodge Challenger impact, and I have seen no evidence that James Fields was the driver. All of the photographs of the scene show the profile of a different man. Similarly, many of the leaders of the Alt Right are controlled opposition, like the fed Richard Spencer. The true Alt-Right needs to maintain its fidelity to the core idea to combat these deceptions, and the movement is going to need to weather some necessary growing pains, relabeling, and remorphing. Anything that doesn’t further the goal of the white ethnostate is of secondary importance.

That there are x times more Hispanics in the criminogenic age group than Whites is no solace to people impacted by the crime. Crime rate in the state of California would be lower if the fraction of Hispanic population was smaller. Having older population is good not only because of lower crime.

    (3) The concentration on crime by the alt-right might be a part of Zionist designed strategy with objective to legitimize Israel Wall and approval of Israel treatment of non Jews. That’s why the Wall on Mexican border became the chief slogan of Trump and the alt-right so the issue of security, criminals, rapists and so on was emphasized. If Trump and the alt-right really wanted to solve the illegal immigration they could advocate penalization of employers under the current laws and they could advocated, which is even more important, change in the legal immigartion policies.

    (4) That SV is not perceptive to anti-immigration rhetoric is not because the alt-right makes outrageous and silly claims but because SV depends heavily on immigrant labor and many top executives are immigrants. So telling the alt-right by Ron Unz to be less stupid will not change anything. That’s why his open letter was disingenuous.

    (5) American workers real income did not increase since late 1970s or so. This is the true cost and the worst impact of immigration. If America existed to benefit its citizens population growth would be limited and development of technology would lead to improved quality of life. America was never a destination in itself. It was a vehicle for the global change already present in the mind of its Founding Fathers. If the alt-right or whatever will come after them are concerned with the direction where America is going they must address fundamental economic and political issues which most likely they are incapable of because too many of them were lobotomized by a hefty dose of libertarianism.

  391. And not having any mainstream media representation or financial backing hasn’t stopped our ideas from spreading so far. I don’t see it as a primary concern, it’s a temporary hurdle if a painful one. The mainstream media is slowly dying, and the cracks are beginning to appear in big tech’s monopoly. Eventually a parallel network of alternative tech companies will emerge based on free speech and more libertarian ideals, and the dissident right will have a home there. We already have Gab, sites like this, and there is an effort going on to create a new Patreon-like site without heavy-handed censorship. The main thing our world needs, across pretty much all institutions, is decentralization – Michael Krieger has done some good writing on this.

    You don’t even have to reach the water to see how Moonbeam’s Economic Miracle has created caravans of RV occupants who live in their vans and motor homes.

    Look, in my “open letter” I describing outrageously expensive housing as one of the biggest problems in CA, and repeated that point over and over and over again in many of my comments.

    There’s a huge line of RVs parked all along El Camino Blvd. right across from Stanford because many working-class people can’t afford to pay local rent, and the same thing is true in many, many other locations in Silicon Valley. It’s not exactly a deep, dark secret—there have been numerous front-page stories in all the local newspapers, and I think all the polls show that housing is considered the #1 problem in the state. When only being able to pay $1,900/month in rent means you’re on the edge of becoming homeless, things are totally ridiculous.

    As for the unemployed/drug-addicted homeless living in tents or on the street all around CA, I think that’s a somewhat different issue. I think Steve Sailer or one of his commenters once claimed that many of them are drug-addicts imported into California from the Midwest by drug-addiction clinics as nice revenue sources, then turned out on the street once their federal money ran out.

    Maybe, maybe not. I don’t know anything about that issue, so perhaps some of the people on this thread who live in LA or OC where that’s a major problem can provide their insight.

After 911, there was not one attack against the “911” patsy “doers”. Wesley Clark mentioned the plan after the attacks. It was “Destroy seven nations in five years”.

Numerous people have called for immigration moratoriums and commented on the flat wages and declining living standards. However, even the Democrats are against employer sanctions because they know that enforcing employer sanctions will mean a loss of jobs for illegals and they would lose their ability to stay in the US and won’t be here when the amnesty comes.

    The focus on crime is simply because the media cannot as easily hide when someone has been killed or maimed by an illegal and it more easily shines a light on Americans being treated as second class citizens in their own country by the elite. Notice all the illegals being pardoned or given slaps on the wrist by judges to shield them from deportation.

    If we normalize the incarceration rate to the number of males aged 15-34, California Hispanics are imprisoned at 9 percent above the local white rate

    As I further pointed out in our past discussion, if you use one of my other age-normalization ranges, the CA Hispanic incarceration rate may be up to 26% higher. All of this accords very closely with the results separately obtained by the PPIC analysis, and also the violent crime arrest rates from 2015, the most recently published.

    I get along fine with most of the Mexicans I know, and neither fear nor revile them. Lots of them are for all intents and purposes white, too. Not a majority, but quite a few. Some of the women are very attractive, most of the men do their jobs well enough, and in some ways they behave better than Anglos (e.g. their women don’t seem to have fully gotten on board with the feminist program, although that may be changing as they Americanize). I also happen to like Mexican cuisine quite a bit, so I taught myself to cook it, which was both easy and rewarding.

    However, I’m against immigration anyway. First because of economic issues (housing and wages), secondly because of quality of life (not a fan of overcrowding), and lastly because of cultural/ethnic/racial issues. Although I have no racial animosity toward Hispanics (or anyone, really), ethnic diversity causes ethnic competition and raises tensions, and it causes people to lose focus on other big problems, such as income inequality, social atomization, and concentration of power in the hands of the few. There’s a reason that conquerors have consistently broken up homogeneity wherever they find it. It’s a proven way to keep people from organizing and demanding a better deal.

    Although if I had to choose immigrants, and they could not be directly from Europe, Latin Americans would be my next choice. They just seem a lot more easygoing and normal than the strivers from Asia. They’re also Christian, which means they share the same basic moral and philosophical code as most Americans, which makes things much easier (I’ve lived in Asia, so I know how important that is).

    I guess I agree with Unz that white nationalists and alt-righters should stop making wild accusations against Hispanics, but I see no reason they should welcome more immigrants. We have enough people, and we have more than enough diversity. More is not better. Shut off the flow and let the Hispanics already here (legally) have some time to Americanize.

The Alt Right is just a bunch of weird dudes picking what they want from the Hate and Stupidity Buffet )All you can eat for just $14.88).

    In the real world, crime rates have been falling significantly for a couple decades even while the country is far less white. Sure you can scare up some fear with your caravan charades and bemoan the dominance of hip-hop, but the lizard brain stuff doesn’t work on most people.

    These people (the PNACs) are of the same tribe that want the white/Christians out of existence, by dilution or anyhow else. They are the principal problem. As Mao wrote in his article called “On Contradiction”; in any situation you find yourself in, you will be facing a number of problems. (He called them ‘contradictions’.) One of them will be the most important problem, which will underlie many of the problems facing you, and until you can resolve that, the principle problem, you will not be able to solve most of the problem facing you.

    According to the reigning philosophy of this website, HBD, crime is genetic and not situational.

    That’s the scientific method in action…

    Yeah.

    I considered the notion that crime could be genetic for a while, but I have found a lot of holes in it.

    At the very least, a lot of it is situational.

    Take Russia, for instance; After the fall of the Soviet Union, we saw a steep decline in the population’s standard of living, tremendous inequality, all the great benefits of a dog eat dog, super-neoliberal capitalist model. Murder rate in Russia skyrocketed to levels similar or even higher to those found in Mexico. After Putin, the murder rate has sharply declined.

    In Brazil, a country where the population has not changed much racially since the early 60s, when the mostly European immigration period begun in the 19th century ended, markedly changing the country’s demographics in the southeastern/southern regions, one can notice wild fluctuations internally, but in general, a steep rise of murder rate overall in the last 30 years.
    But in the southeastern state of São Paulo, the most populous in the country, the murder rate fell from a high 33,1 in 2002 to 7,4 in 2018.

    Another possible reason why the alt right in the US is struggling is because alt right attitudes to economic issues don’t resonate with working class whites, who are the people who are most likely to be attracted to nationalism and populism. Trump’s red hat movement has attracted a fair number of anxious lower middle class whites but there are still lots of working class whites who have no interest in voting for tax cuts for Wall Street Bankers (incidentally, only about 63 percent of whites in the US vote, which is the lowest percentage in any western country).

    The more high brow end of the US alt right comes across as an online revolt by upper-middle class curmudgeons who (rightly or wrongly) have some cultural hang ups about modern liberalism but aren’t really experiencing any economic pain from high immigration or economic globalism. A more working class white nationalist movement also exists but appears to be riddled with oddballs, wannabe thugs, and over the top anti-Semites.

    In Europe the alt right is more of a real world movement which is steadily attracting working and lower-middle class natives who are suffering from the twin effects of high immigration and neo-liberal economic policies. It doesn’t waste much time on fringe cultural issues or debating whether or not there was a Jewish holocaust.

    If the alt-right in the US expects to have an serious political influence, it needs to become more of a populist movement, with its leaders reasonably well-versed in the economic impact of globalisation, not a fringe movement for middle-class eccentrics and underclass ex-cons.

    People with political experience know that struggles are often decided by “competing incompetence,” so here’s my metaphor for the current immigration debate, so hotly disputed on this comment-thread.

    I assume that there are government regulations limiting the number of passengers on a commercial bus. But suppose the bus companies all got together and after doing some market research, decided they could make more money if they packed their passengers in like sardines.

    So they hired some thinktankers and consultants to start an “Open Doors” movement, denouncing the horrifying unfairness of closing bus doors to passengers who wanted to get on. Indeed, they viciously attacked their opponents as being “anti-people” since they were trying to prevent more people from getting on buses.

    Naturally, their opponents fought back. Their loudest activists claimed that if you let more people on a bus, they’d all turn into werewolves and a massive wave of brutal killings would result.

    Under such a scenario, I think the “Open Doors” side would probably win, especially if they had so much more money for bribing politicians and buying media ads.

    In my opinion, I’d say that 95% of the commenters on this thread are totally confused about certain important quantitative issues that I have investigated in considerable detail.

    ‘…For example, there were only something like 7,000 Spanish speakers in California and maybe twice that in Texas. These tiny populations were quickly swamped and absorbed in the huge waves of American newcomers who flooded into the area…’

    It’s also to be noted that at least some of those Mexicans were less than enamored of Mexican rule.

    For example, before we annexed the disputed portion of Texas, we polled the affected population: would you rather continue to be part of Mexico or become part of the US?

    They voted to be annexed by the US. Personally, I think it would have worked out a lot better for all concerned if we’d just annexed all of Mexico rather than those bits that didn’t contain many Mexicans anyway.

    With a relatively small population, they’d all have been assimilated long ago, and in any case, with good government, the joyous tide of European immigration would have submerged them as well.

    ‘…Lots of them are for all intents and purposes white too…Shut off the flow and let the Hispanics already here (legally) have some time to Americanize…’

    Yeah. Here I’m reminded of a Hispanic High School English teacher I knew who fit into the ‘for all intents and purposes white too’ category. In fact, it took me some time to realize she was Hispanic, and I only did so when I noticed that she moved the same way the girl students did.

    She was descended from the wave of Mexicans that moved up here to escape the Mexican Revolution and associated bloody and interminable chaos. She once remarked that ‘we were just like the Italians or the Jews — only in our case more Mexicans kept coming after us.’

    …and it’s true. Mexicans do assimilate nicely — like anyone else, once they’ve been here a few generations.

    It’s just that more Mexicans keep coming. So I’ve no objection to letting the ones already here legally stay — but let’s turn off the tap.

    Ron, you’re missing it. The problem with immigration, not just illegal, is that it changes the culture. There is real, measurable difference in how whites, asians and latinos vote. And it matters not whether it’s due to race or other factors. The fact that the average asian or latino is to the left of the historically white US population, at best shows that there is no assimilation happening on this most important aspect. So it is a cultural suicide to import more immigrants, poor or otherwise.

    “Pressured”. “Coerced”. “Forced”. You mean GOVERNMENT. (And, if you’re addressing media liberals putting their two cents in, you’re probably aware that the government and media have ‘assimilated’…) If society were left to its own devices, immigration would be a snap. My point is that we don’t need immigrants. Perhaps back when the Transcontinental Railroad was being built, it was necessary to import labor.

    Okay–it is really hard to read the nonsensical assertions being made here in this thread which are touted as history and have no basis in history. Neither Mexico nor Spain ever owned all of modern day California. California’s entire Northern half was controlled by the UK and Russia prior to 1848. There were a nominal number of pure Spaniards living in the Southern half and virtually no “Mexicans”. Those Spaniards sided with the Americans in their revolt against all three countries as they saw Mexico as a backward, corrupt nation going no where fast. America was on the rise. The UK saw the inevitability of The Monroe Doctrine and voluntarily ceded their territories of Washington, Oregon and Northern California to the US. Russia likewise ceded it’s California holdings to the US and sold us Alaska.

    The rest of the Southwest was sparsely populated and also contained very few if any “Mexicans”. The indian tribes in those areas had been killing off any Mexicans that came north for centuries–that includes evidence of Aztec cannibals who were wiped out by Apaches. Mexico has been a pain in our backside for 200 years now. We used to routinely send US army in to the northern area to clean out the detritus that was crossing the border and inflicting the US territory with crime.

    Hanson wrote that he, personally, not his wife or pastor, offered to help a woman put a large TV in her car while carrying an EBT card in her hand
    How did she open the car door with a large TV and a card in her hands?

    If you’re a man ask some women you know about the advantage of being able to dump change and credit cards in a purse if we don’t want to take the 30 seconds to put it in the wallet in the purse. Think about it. 2 hands are necessary to carry a large TV. How would a person carry a card in one hand
    And a large TV

    Try it. Carry a credit card in one hand and pick up something the size and shape of a TV. Maybe a box fan a chair anything 2 ft by 2 ft. Try it and see if it works. Then carry it out of your house to the street holding both the box fan shaped object and a credit card. See if you could do it across a big parking lot.

    Maybe you have professional basket ball player sized hands but women don’t.

    He made the story up. If he’d said he was behind her at checkout and saw her pay for a large TV with a welfare card the story would have made sense. But carrying a large TV and a welfare card at the same time across a big parking lot is ridiculous.

    Hanson is a farmer. Every year they bring more and more illegal immigrants to California to plant and pick. And last years illegals go on welfare because the farmers bring more workers in every year

    In about 6 weeks the cries will go out.
    There’s no one to plant. The fields will lie fallow. There aren’t hundreds of thousands of able bodied men loitering the Central Valley able to plant. And first of April the strawberries are rotting in the fields because we can’t import pickers from Central America

    I’m not prejudiced against Hanson. I’m
    post judiced against him because of all his silly false anecdotes over the years.

    The Central Valley has one of the highest number of people on welfare in the country. Instead of hiring them the farmers just bring in more illegals every year.

  448. The reason why California whites (and people like Unz here) prefer the brown hoards is because, like all liberals, blacks terrify them. Tom Wolff made this clear with his first best seller more than 45 years ago which illustrated very nicely the cowardice of the liberal elite. Mr. Unz hints at the reason for his preference without actually admitting it—Mexicans engage in rampant ethnic cleansing and are the reason blacks have left California.

    https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2013/01/15/latino-gang-leader-convicted-la-ethnic-cleansing-campaign

    When even the SPLC writes about it, you know it’s “bad”. Just google “ethnic cleansing L.A.” and you should come up with 1000’s of hits.

    Even here in “flyover country” the liberal whites openly admit (openly amongst themselves in safe company) they “feel safer” around the seemingly obedient and passive browns than they do the scary and “belligerent and angry black people”. This metro area is second only to NYC in the number of museums and theaters per capita, was in 1925 the wealthiest city per capita in the world and, according to Steve Sailer, the highest IQ population in America.

    They don’t commit crime?

    Oh yes they do–and lots of it. They especially like to “el rapo” 12-14 year old girls. Now that we have a significant population of them here, every time you turn around there is another one in the news. Not to mention the usual assortment of gang banger crimes. Oh–and no insurance so, lots and lots of hit and runs………..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_North_America#Mexico

    Mr. Unz–you make the claim that the US allowed mass migration from Mexico until 1965–could you please explain Presidents Truman and Eisenhower rounding up Mexican illegals and deporting them in post WW2 America? I know that “pickers” were rounded up here (2,500 acre dairy farm in the 30’s and 40’s that required at least 100 bodies to harvest the corn prior to mechanization) at Thanksgiving where the harvest was complete or not and sent back south busses till the next fall. When I asked ,my dad why, he responded “because they cause trouble when they’re not working–alcoholism and knife fights– it’s a long winter up here. So, I think you are greatly mistaken in this area–yes, they were allowed in as temporary workers, but not as citizens with voting rights. Suggest you see “Operation Wetback” for starters and then the LA riots during WW2 that drew white servicemen from as far as Texas.

    To say “there was no plan by Hitler to exterminate the tribe” is to use weasel words to excuse not putting together the multiple pieces of evidence to establish his moral guilt.

    Read Mein Kampf for his views on Jews and their place in the Reich. Consider his actions when in power to assess whether killing people gave him angst. And remember that he was a politician with multiple objectives and constraints who certainly knew that his extreme views on Jews and what he wanted to do with them would be opposed by many Germans. Being able to blame others was always one of his crude effective tactics and the fact that he was happy to extort money from Jews and export them to Palestine is no more an argument against his responsibility for the Nazi Holocaust that Himmler largely administered than any excuses you might think up for shipping large numbers of Jewish women, children and old people from their homes throughout Europe to concentration camps.

    You’ve spent a lot of time arguing with people who don’t get that the current Hispanic crime rate in the U.S. is not that much (maybe only 10-25%) higher than that of similar aged whites. That must be frustrating. Believe it or not, a lot of us do understand that Hispanics aren’t nearly as likely to be crime prone as Blacks under current circumstances in the U.S.

    However, how do you account for the huge disparity in crime rates between Mexico and the U.S.? Why is the crime rate so much higher in Tijuana than in San Diego (they are cities with similar population sizes and very close to one another geographically, but couldn’t be more different in so many ways)?

    You seem to believe that things are basically still pretty good in CA, despite a lot of CA based commentators (myself included) arguing otherwise from personal experience. CA can still function with a 35% white population that is the de facto ruling class. The elites may actually prefer to trade Trump-prone middle/working class whites for a servile brown population whom they are generously “helping” in their minds. But how do you think CA will function a few more decades out, when whites are down to say around 10-15% of the population, or similar to the current demographics of Mexico, especially given current trends in automatation that will increasinbly obviate the low-skilled jobs that immigrants from Mexico/Central America and their descendants primarily do?

Focusing on arbitrary and explosive concepts that do not reflect the reality that most of us deal with. I can’t help but be reminded of warmongers pushing for the continued war in the Middle East, these so called ‘Alt-right’ leaders and supporters ramp up into a frenzy over focus points that divert attention from where it needs to be.

    It would clearly be better to present arguments that may actually be successful rather than polemic and fundementalist. Racialists use one set of data to present reasoning behind their views but then discard others that don’t fit, or require them to revamp their initial position ie. your Hispanic crime data.

    Jews declared themselves to be enemies to the German state. So many of them were placed in camps. The same thing happened to Japanese and Germans and Itailans in the US and Canada that happened to Jews in Europe, except North America did not experience war.

    And you’ve already answered one of your questions about this imaginary “holocaust”. If the Germans were trying to kill them, why would they put them on trains, ship them all over Euope, feed and medicate them and provide them with camp money, commisaries, kitchens, theatres, art supplies, etc?

    This is also why I don’t believe this idea that other groups with enormous crime rates in their own countries magically become less so by dint of setting foot in a European country. There is undoubtedly book-cooking going on here. The same people who lie about everything else and undemocratically bring them in are also caught covering up crimes. Why in the world should we trust much of anything they say?

    We talk about the crime rates because these are horrendous conditions of life put upon us by the mass immigration of these other people we never consented to allowing into our countries, and because it’s an additional argument against the hyper-atomized and just simply those with racial animosity towards Europeans who will disingenuously claim that somehow not wanting to be replaced is alone somehow “bigoted.”

    C average, etc — about 18% of the students at white schools fell victim, about 18% of the students at black schools, and 50% of the students at Hispanic schools.

    This wasn’t, of course, evidence that blacks were performing at parity with whites, What was happening was that while white kids were doing their white kid thing, black kids got at least a ‘C’ if they showed up and didn’t bite the teacher. Hispanics would study — but only if you channeled Genghis Khan when it came to grading time. I’d often fail up to 50% of my students, and there was one woman who’d completely lost it who used to fail 80%.

    Mexican parents, as a rule, only fretted if their kids failed. Ergo, you could get work out of them — but only if you graded like a Tartar.

    My observation is that many of the comments from the “alt right” are more about “culture”, than race.

    That’s true in a few cases. But mostly the alt-right seems to be obsessed with HBD and IQ and an awful lot of their arguments on immigration come down to a contempt for low IQ people (they naturally consider themselves to be high IQ people). So there’s a lot of biological determinism in their views. The typical alt-right argument would be that Somalians have low IQs and that can only be caused by genetics because, well just because. Therefore we must avoid being contaminated by those awful low IQ riff-raff.

    There’s also oddly enough the alt-right hysteria about Muslims. I say oddly enough because you might think that being Muslim is entirely a cultural thing. You’re not a Muslim because you carry the Islamic Gene. But none of that matters to alt-righters. They consider Muslims to be low IQ people because they consider anyone that they disapprove of to be low IQ.

    Of course it’s possible that they’re right about all this but my feeling is that the scientific basis for our understanding of human intelligence is very very sketchy.

    I don’t think there’s anything truly scientific about the alt-right’s view. It’s mostly unproven and somewhat ambiguous science turned into a cult.

In Venezuela — smoldering experiment in Real Economic Leftism that it is — it’s true that class is all important. If you’re in the 1 percent, you eat. If you’re in the underclass you die. Well done. On the other hand, however bad a Gini Coefficient of 50 may look, it doesn’t stack bodies. The Marxist confuses the symptom for the disease, adding to his blood-soaked record of deadly malpractice.

    And to dismiss a large and well-developed body of thought, wholesale, with the line “it’s all about X” is close to the Webster’s definitions of both unsophisticated and naive.

    How about letting Jews define themselves?

    Unz and Revusky are right. The achilles heel of the alt-right is unreflective, misinformed racism. Or should we just call it “racist bullshit.”

    Revusky, by the way, has been crusading against racist bullshit here and elsewhere for quite some time. Give the dude some credit!

    Unz is spot-on in this article. The alt-right should dial down its racial obsessions, especially the completely insane ones, and go about demolishing the neoliberal consensus using truth, not lies. There are plenty of explosively subversive truths lying around waiting to be picked up and lobbed at the Establishment. Political correctness, in particular, can be annihilated for fun and profit without resorting to counterproductive racist bullshit.

    People who feel the need to indulge in white pride style racial politics should focus on the positive aspects of European heritage, and downplay or eliminate negative claims about other groups, especially when those claims are demonstrably untrue (i.e. most bashing of Mexicans, immigrants, Muslims, etc.)

    Avoiding egregiously stupid racism removes the leading justification/excuse for censorship. It is also a good political strategy for winning new converts.

    I already know I am wasting my time here, but screw it.

    Not that Ron needs anyone to validate his stats, observances, and opinions, but as a 4th generation(rare here) Northern Californian (central valley, not Bay Area, which is an important distinction in CA) I largely concur with Mr. Unz’s assessment of the Mexican/Asian dynamic in CA. I have worked in the agriculture and construction industries, as well as 7 years in education (high school shop). My wife worked for years in social services before becoming a teacher. I own guns, I drink Pabst Blue Ribbon, I hate the Zio-Empire. I think there is an immigration problem, but only a simpleton would think “The Wall” will fix it. I am not a leftie-snowflake or sheltered in a tech-driven economic bubble world. I have seen some shit. And some of the absolute crap I have seen posted here, particularly regarding Mexican immigrants in CA, needs addressing. I can’t speak to non-Mexican Hispanics in other states, as we have few here. Unlike many here, I only spout off about what I know. Not that you’ll listen, but, again screw it:

    Myth 1: “They” (Mexican Illegals) come here to get on welfare
    No. They come to work, and they come to work in by far the most laborious, lowest paying jobs. And they bust ass. They’re not even qualified for welfare benefits, anyway.

    Myth 2: “They’re taking Americans’ jobs!”
    Have you been shut out of the lucrative profession of picking strawberries for minimum wage (and no overtime pay at time and a half)? Or moving solid-set sprinkler pipe across a melon field? Or pruning an Almond orchard? Well, then I guess then you’v
