Here’s a map of Fentanyl Floyd protests in Eurasia with more than 100 members (h/t Jack Posobiec):

As I pointed out, in epidemiological terms, we may consider English language knowledge and pro-Western geopolitical orientation to be the main “vectors” through which American cults such as #BLM spreads.

Few surprises. Perhaps more in Italy than I would have expected, and less so than in Sweden Yes (only one?). But the general pattern holds.

    Apparently the UK outfit that calls itself BLM is just a bunch of students doing the May ’68 revival stuff, only more diverse and probabyl with more sparkly wine.

    You can donate right here – 750’000 GBP collected.

    We’re guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world. We build deep relationships across the diaspora and strategise to challenge the rise of the authoritarian right-wing across the world, from Brazil to Britain.

    UKBLM 2020: Black Trotsky!

    We fight for our extended black family dying across the globe before and during the Global lockdown. Nineteen year old Adil, killed by police in Belgium. Seventeen year old Tina, killed by police in Nigeria. Thirteen year old Yasin, killed by police in Kenya. Thirty four year old Winston, killed by police in the Philippines. We stand in solidarity and love with you in demanding justice and change.

    Liberalism can not exist without Empire. It is a product of it and will fight to prop it up.

    Thus the invade the world / invite the world ideology of the West.

    Btw, the puppets of the Empire (such as euro-puppets) are usually more liberal than the center. This is because they have more protected existence under the center, while the center has to fight for loot and resources and thus has to be more militarised.

    Interestingly enough, the US puppets are also pushing the US to become more liberal, like themselves. They are sometimes even bigger believers in Empire than the US. They beg for it. Because without it their whole modern existence will lose meaning and they will have to go back to the feared past. They fear that their beloved liberalism can not exist without the Empire.

  10. Maybe those in charge aren’t so completely stupid after all?

    The global Muslim jihad, that took so much effort to quieten down, was the product of a huge youth bulge in the Muslim world and a lot of broken young men trying to find a way to feel more complete. Far better to have a month’s worth of rioting and rename a few police departments than go through that again.

    Sure, this stuff isn’t big in Africa yet, but now, it is out there, waiting, complete with automatic American leadership. (It even has an American-led alternative in the Evangelical movement.)

    On the other hand, I’ve just made all of this stuff up in the last five minutes, without any research, and have no evidence for any of it. It was fun though!


    I did listen to a puzzling interview with Marianne Williamson the other day. I thought I’d really like her personally but not her politics, and yet her persona was that of an emotionally unstable lunatic and her politics, while objectionable, came with some excellent insights.

    Her character didn’t seem like a well-crafted act, but if “yoga girls” who “outnumber coal miners” ever stop trying to find themselves in hot Vinyasa, and turn to politics, then her star will surely rise.

    I’m not sure someone who wasn’t loved like “the father of a nation” could ever speak to people so directly.

    Also, that you rest your hope, on the existence of a man who has died, feels sadly poignant.

    I figure the objective of the current party is to federalize police – disband the locals (“defund the police”) and replace them with federal security forces (massively expand FBI basically) as our friendly overlords proceed with centralization of power. Not sure why people would care for that internationally though, unless they also have local police departments to eradicate.

    I feel so bad. I’m trying to I write the Iranian parliament to start a war with America. Clearly without a new war every 10 years America goes full retard.

    Perhaps some Israelis here can write their government to stage a decent false flag to get the ball rolling. These are your allies guys. Do something! Help them shift the attention away.

    How much of the enthusiasm for the demonstrations is a reaction to being locked down for more than two months ? I don’t think that it would be decisive but it might contribute to peoples eagerness to get out onto the streets.

    Just do like the blacks and lefties do,start a GoFundMe to help initiate war with Iran.

    Simpler than that. BLM is a Soros-funded operation, who in turn is a State Department fall guy.

    Follow the money and the politicians it buys.

    Well there are a lot of knee-grows in Italy, the country is fucked. People were going on and on about Muslims and their terrorism, didn’t realize that the actual objective was being swamped with Africans. Or even African Muslims, to get the worst of both worlds. FUUUUUUUUUUU

    In many respects, the current US is further to the left than Europe. The Americans still don’t have single-payer health care (except for tiiiny little Medicare and Medicaid of course). So that’s why Europe is irredeemably socialist, I guess. On the other hand, the elites in Europe are not entirely made out of lunatics like in the US. Not quite yet.

    If the US took its toys and went back to America, would the EU still be heavily into homo/negro/arab/holocaust-worship? I would say it would decline and disappear. Even if we still had the disloyal scheming Jews around.

  20. neutral says:

    Are there still people out there that still believe the final goal is not white genocide? I would bet that if this woke nigger worship religion was openly saying this there would still be people in denial.

    Surprisingly many Jewish intellectuals are like that. As time passes and you get more familiar with them or you read more of their work, you realize they are kind of nuts.

    Regarding the muslim youth bulge, I think that’s definitely one reason. The poor downtrodden refugees that enter Europe are, as we all know and have long known, almost only young men.

    There were gatherings in Zagreb, Podgorica, Ljubljana and Belgrad, it’s just that none of them were 100+ people
    The one in Belgrad was pathetic, like 10~ grannies standing around holding signs in English (they’re part of another grift that usually protests the Srebrenica massacre, no one shows up to those either)

  23. That map is not accurate. For example in Sweden and Finland there was black lives matter protest pretty much in every city. In finland alone there was maybe a protest in 6-7 cities at least. And in most of those protests were more than 100 people. Like in Göteborg there were thousands protesters and it is not in the map.

    Here some video footage from Sweden:

    Fertility for Italians is something like 1.2.

    Importing thousands of Africans by the day. They are in big cities, and little towns.

    The embarrassing thing is that Christian blacks cause just as much (perhaps more) crime as Muslim blacks.

    Italy is done. A great history going thousands of years back wrecked in less than a century.

    P.S. Ever notice that even the “alt right” actions are good for Jews? Anti Muslim sentiment is good for them.

  26. BLM vigils resemble the pussy hat marches or an outdoor yoga class – lots of educated but gullible white women. They’re no threat.

    The men of the protest movement, on the other hand, want mob intimidation and direct action.

    It would be easy to deal with the men if the two groups could be separated. The success of this movement is due to the weaponization of Western feminism, which corresponds to the map.

    Where you don’t have this brand of feminism, you won’t have BLM marches.

  27. Wonder if the Italian numbers are so high because prolonged lockdown raised anxieties?
    Commiserating the death of Black Methhead Jesus is one way to blow off steam after having been locked down for months and (I assume) having all “non-essential” gatherings banned.
    It’s summertime, and your average italian would be at some sort of festivity or at the sea. Since only the Negro Procession is allowed, might as well go with that.

    At the very least it’s one lesson for aspiring cult leaders: Just ban everything and people will have no choice but to attend whatever religious celebration you invent/”restore”. Only problem is that you’ll have to compete with these zealots.

    Latest news from Cuckoldistan

    US flag burned and Columbus statue brought down and then thrown into a lake in Richmond, Virginia

  29. @AKAHorace

    America exploded, the ~100 other countries that locked down didn’t. In fact, Hong Kong protests are now more low key than they were a few months ago, despite the national security law being an unprecedented escalation. So I don’t buy this theory.

  30. Britain is being destroyed and there will be no opposition to it. Britain will be a sacrifice and an offering to atone for the colonial legacy of Europe in general.

    No one else in Europe will defend Britain because they all fear being targeted for their own legacy. France and Spain hope that the destruction of Britain will be enough to let them off the hook for their own history.

  31. @LoutishAngloQuebecker

    The irony is Islam with black Africans seems to keep their naturally aggressive behaviour and thuggery in check to a certain extent, and also makes them less inclined towards black nationalism.

    The thuggish blacks with an anti-white grievance mentality are more often than not from Christian African backgrounds. Yet most right wingers think it’s only Muslims who are the threat and bizarrely believe that blacks from Christian countries are their friends.

  32. Znzn says:

    But then to get anywhere careerwise, you need to learn English.

  33. The amusing thing though, as Durocher has pointed out, is that while these protests outside of the Imperial core express earnest support for American blacks against police brutality, they have an added glaze of schadenfreude toward the world-bestriding self-styled “indispensable nation”.

  34. SIMP simp says:

    This is the BLM protest in Bucharest, Romania:

    10 wierdos. The video has a big downvote ratio.

    English knowledge is higher in Romania than in Poland. Romania is also more pro-EU than Poland. This means Karlin’s vectors are wrong.

    She’s a woo woo politician. Her persona, whether conscious or not, is highly appealing to her audience. That her emotions bubble up, seemingly unstably, is a key part of that.

    You’d be more astute if you didn’t know her religious background, as your shoehorning of her into the class of “Jewish intellectuals”, whom you’ve decided are much more emotionally unstable than other intellectuals, means that you miss this key observation.

    In replacement, you merely got to pat yourself on the head through confirmation bias.

  37. Nodwink says:
    @Anatoly Karlin

    It seems to be partly true for one demographic: socially-progressive, middle class white Americans. I’m basing this on some fairly limited information (TV footage shown in Australia, short internet videos), but there seemed to be a kind of picnic atmosphere at some of these protests. Not a lot of brick-throwing anarchists or angry PoC, but plenty of blokes in Gucci loafers & designer sunnies.
