Democrat voters overwhelmingly want their vice presidential candidate to be a woman:

Most of the residual answers are “not sure”. Only 6% expressed a desire the candidate be a man.

The “not sure” response will, in many cases, be a legitimate one rather than merely being a non-answer. If identity politics is not your primary concern and you’ve not definitively settled on a person, this is the answer you presumably give.

The strict “no” responses, 6% here and 7% for the subsequent question about a black nominee, represent the sliver of Democrats actively resisting the total transformation of the Democrat party into nothing more than an intersectionality contest. A defiant “no” is a figurative middle finger to that. Their cause is a noble one. It’s also hopeless.

The desire for the VP pick to be black isn’t as strong:

Again, most of the rest answered “not sure”, with 7% saying they didn’t want the pick to be black.

The most striking difference between the affirmative female and the affirmative black distributions is generational. Old Democrats really want a woman but they don’t care much about having a black nominee. Been there, done that, I guess.

We maintain it will in fact be a black(ish) woman, Kamala Harris–and not just because her becoming vice president in 2020 and president in 2024 kinda sorta exculpates our years’ old initial prediction she’d be the presidential nominee in November!

    Off-topic, but the recent article from Ron Unz about the Political Bankruptcy of White Nationalism really does prove what I have been saying all along about the true purpose of this website.

    To recap :

    It is a privilege to see a sophisticated Confuse and Conquer Jew* like Ron Unz ply his trade. He singlehandedly ties up hundreds if not thousands of WNs at once. His strategy is particularly elegant when one observes the chess pieces that Ron advances in the correct sequence.

    Step 1 : Make a website that WNs use (since they can never build anything on their own). Let any and all anti-Semitic slurs stand on the website to make WNs complacent and even keyboard-courageous.
    Step 2 : Recruit the 2-3 intelligent authors that WNs read (Sailer, Derbyshire, etc.) who happen to bad at making money, so that they write for very little payment.
    Step 3 : After a few years, start pushing for normalization of Hispanics (even if illegal; especially if illegal).
    Step 4 : Call a white guy like Thomm a ‘South Asian’ based on zero evidence, and on ignoring overwhelming evidence to the contrary. This distracts 70-IQ WNs from his strategy.
    Step 5 : Deploy people like Fred Reed and Chanda Chisala to generate even more confusion.
    Step 6 : Out of the blue, recognize some commenters as ‘excellent commenters’, of which two are Muslims but zero are WNs.
    Step 7: Point out how powerless and intellectually empty the White Tr**hionalist movement is.

    We have just witnessed Step 7 before our eyes.

    It works…and it is a lesson in asymmetrical attrition warfare by a sophisticated Confuse and Conquer Jew. Remember, he got handed an unprestigious assignment from Jewish central command. Harvey Weinstein got to have sex with the prettiest actresses for 30 years, George Soros gets to be a billionaire, etc. But someone has to do the less glamorous work, and Runzie Baby is equal to the task.

    Now, here is the thing. Those who talk about Auschwitz, lampshades, and soap never get moderated on TUR, but those who agree with Ron Unz do. He will even get angry with those who agree with him too vocally, even as any and all anti-Israel content is fully welcome.

    Why?

    It is because he thinks it will expose his game of 4D chess from the perception of a 70-IQ WN. But I guarantee that it cannot, since the typical White Tr**hionalist is far below the IQ threshold where they can observe the many pieces in motion. I can describe Ron’s plan in full detail (and I fully support it), without any risk of the WNs figuring out that they are the frog and the temperature is already up to about 170 degrees F.

    I am strongly in favor of what Ron Unz is doing. This article was the latest trial balloon through which he tested the speed at which the temperature can be increased under the immersed-in-water frog. I look forward to seeing him go for the kill (i.e. 212 degrees F) by around 2023 or so.

    So was I right? Or was I right? Or was I right?

    *That is a specific type of Jew, ya know. A Confuse and Conquer Jew.

  2. The solution to this is to elect a trans-woman. That way we get a man and can claim he’s a woman. The other side would have to shut up about it. They can’t deny that it’s a woman.

    All a male candidate has to do is declare himself female. That’s how boys are kicking female ass in high school sports and other events right now. Time to use the tactic in politics.

  4. The fact that Tulsi Gabbard, who checked all the proper woke boxes and was articulate, experienced and credible, has been excluded, obliterated, and un-personed, all for speaking out against Middle East wars, tells you ((who))) is making all your decisions for you. Elections, schmelections. See you for power breakfast at John O’ Groats.

  5. @The Germ Theory of Disease

    Gabbard is more supportive of Israel than Obama, the Democrats’ golden boy. She wanted him to veto the 2017 UN condemnation, she upbraided him for refusing to refer to “Islamic terrorism” and she voted to condemn boycotts of Israel too.

    Gabbard failed to gain traction because she has the honesty and moderation to, for example, not vote to impeach Trump. She is also not corrupt, and this is a problem for those holding the levers of institutional power in DC.

    I also erroneously believed that Harris would be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee. But I’ll go out on another limb and predict that Harris will be president in 2023; Biden will either resign or be forced out by a 25th Amendment process late enough in his term so that Harris can run in both 2024 and 2028.

    Well, I appreciate your comment, and I think you’re speaking intelligently and in good faith. So I salute you for that.

    But it sounds like you’re not much of a chess player, sounds like you’ve never studied the depth and deviousness and ruthlessness of Morphy’s games. People who don’t understand Morphy shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

    When you’re talking about Obama’s ostensible hostility to Israel, you’re clearly unaware of the concept of “plausible deniability,” much less how deception is deployed in war. You’re only at Jew Level Nine, when you need to get to Jew Level Thirty-five Thousand, before we can even start having an informed discussion.

    But, Morphy’s a good place to start. You could begin by studying what a “poisoned pawn” is, for instance.

    I didn’t say that Obama was hostile to Israel. He was conflicted. When younger, he was particularly sympathetic to third world movements, but, when in power, he wanted to do a good job and thought, by working in a friendly way with Israel, that he was fulfilling his role.

    I, instead, just pointed out that Gabbard was more supportive of Israel than Obama. This was a statement for which I gave clear evidence. My statement negates your supposition that Gabbard failed because of a lack of loving Israel enough or something.

    I appreciate you trying to share your passions with me, but I don’t see the world as the result of any demonic block of others. It is infinitely complicated and people are trying, with varying degrees of awareness, to do good to others and to do good for themselves.

  11. @Thomm

    Off-topic right back attcha, Thomm, I remember your theory about the unz site from other comments. I read his latest article and agree with anyone who says he’s just plain wrong in this one.

    However, rather that ascribe a conspiracy theory ABOUT the man, as opposed to the many conspiracy theories BY the man, I think the answer to how this site can publish what it does is simple. Mr. Unz really means what he says in the site masthead up top. He’s a very principled guy.

    Bringing on Michelle Malkin right when her first 4 posts were critical of the Kung Flu Infotainment Panic-Fest, and letting the same be published by Ron Paul, C.J. Hopkins, and Mike Whitney, while his own opinion is quite the opposite, takes a lot of restraint and respect for principles.

    Now, regarding his own articles, Mr. Unz goes down all kinds of rabbit holes, some of them for very good reasons, but never comes back up. I think he’s under the impression that every bit of American history is untruth. I also note that he is against all things American, but doesn’t see any of the lies and stupidity in other parts of the world, such as China. That last thing is the reason he is a COVID Pro-Panicker, IMO. Anything that makes America or Americans look bad, and China good, he believes.

    You’d think a guy that has dozens of conspiracy theories, many that I’d put some credence to myself, and thinks everything the press has said since 1776 was a lie, would not fall for the Lyin’ Press’ 6-month running Panic-Fest Infotainment. Regarding the article in question, you’d think that a smart guy would understand the ruin to our country caused by a 55 year-long massive immigration invasion.

    My explanation is that Mr. Unz lives in the Palo Altan version of an ivory tower. He doesn’t really get around or out much, I suppose, which is odd for a former politician of sorts. Being a very principled man on free speech does not give him any special powers to avoid writing a lot of stupid shit.

    With the Democrats having turned into a ‘gang’ run by ‘shot callers’ I don’t know how much influence the rank and file have on the selection. The shot callers will select the candidate not Biden. This is not a traditional political party where a VP is a tactical decision designed to appease a faction or carry a swing state for electoral college purposes. Everyone knows Biden is the worst candidate to be on a national ticket since Dan Quayle and is only one gaffe away from a nursing home so the shot callers have to select someone who can carry Biden over the finish line and be a credible president.

    The problem is the Democrat bench doesn’t have a lot of female POC who can fill that role. Susan Rice may have some legal problems if John Durham ever gets off his ass and starts indicting people. Same could be said for almost any of Obama’s top people. Samantha Powers for example has all those ‘unmasking’ requests she said she didn’t make.

    OTOH the Democrats do have a deep bench but they are white Governors and Biden’s public declaration that his Veep will be a woman has put the Dems in a bind. Gavin Newsom would work but he is white and a man. So the issue maybe do the Democrats want to win the election or will they put some nut on the ticket just to keep Biden’s pledge?

    Mr. Epigone’s good cheer and happy humbleness in regards to his massive Kamala Harris CLUNKER political prediction is highly commendable for a blogger on the Unz Review.

    Most Unz Review bloggers are like cornerbacks in football — they must be confident and resilient even after they have have been burned like bad toast for a touchdown. There is usually time enough in the game to go from the goat to the hero with one great play.

    Biden will win the presidency and I hope that he does pick Kamala Harris as his VP because she is an insufferable anti-White baby boomer globalizer who will constantly provoke and torment the European Christian ancestral core of the American Empire. Donor-controlled Republican Party slobs such as Teddy Cruz and Marco Rubio and Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley will be looking at their donors for orders and the White Core America political party will be happily engaged in brawling with the Kamala Democrats and the Shelly Adelson Republicans.

    The Kamala Harris Agitation shall bring forth a White Core American response that will be both Sam Huntington smart and Andrew Jackson fiery and that will help to extinguish the rancid Republican Party.

    Kamala Harris Is Accelerationism.

    Kamala Harris will help to destroy the evil and rancid and donor-controlled Republican Party.

    I hope to holy Hell that Biden picks Kamala Harris as his VP!

    Many months ago I ordered my public relations firm — Howard J. Porcupine Public Relations — to do a global survey on the best refutation of Mr. Epigone’s Kamala Harris Clunker prediction that she would win the Democrat Party presidential primary, and the results show that my reply to Mr. Epigone’s KAMALA CLUNKER was far and away the best so I must further instruct and help the Unz Review readers better understand American politics and the world around them by showing them how it’s done. England and Italy were especially strong in my favor and I want to extend my appreciation and gratitude to those two great nations!

    I presciently and correctly wrote this in August of 2019 about the Kamala Harris Clunker:

    Kamala Harris is a mulatto mixed in with some Hindu type subcontinent Indian ancestry.

    That ain’t the kind of candidate the Black Church Ladies be done voting in.

    Hindu types are well known for haughtiness and hubris and looking down on every other damn caste type there is in India or any other place.

    These Hindu types think they’re the cat’s meow.

    I can’t believe that Joe Biden is gonna be the Democrat Party presidential primary candidate that successfully uses the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY to win the Democrat Party presidential primary election, but it just might be the case.

    The AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY is to win the votes of Black lady voters in the South and other areas of high Black population concentration. Hillary Clinton used the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY to fend of Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democrat Party presidential primary campaign.

    Kamala Harris, according to some guy on the internet, is married to a Jew whose parents moved away from an area in California that was under the threat of racial Black busing in order to avoid having to go to school with large concentrations of Blacks. This arrogant baby boomer boob Kamala Harris had the nerve to attack Joe Biden for his stance on Black racial busing when Kamala Harris’s own Jew husband’s parents moved to get away from the chance that their son would be caught up in the undertow of Black racial busing in California.

    Black Church Ladies and beautiful Aunt Jemima ladies don’t give a crap about no crocodile tears and fake rage about Black racial busing from some damn fool named Kamala Harris!

  20. What matters is the agenda.

    Whether a candidate is female only matters to me for the executive office. There’s a host of reasons, none of them just because she is a woman.

    There are plenty of talented capable women and there are plenty who aren’t.

    But there’s host of tests a woman doesn’t have to suffer that male executives do and until women are forced to run that gauntlet —

    no votes for me.

    >With the Democrats having turned into a ‘gang’ run by ‘shot callers’

    That’s what politics is. That’s how it is supposed to work. It’s the only effective arrangement. Politics is war by other means and you fight a war with a chain of command – shot callers.

    Typically there are multiple centers of power within the gang that have divergent interests, and indeed this is still the case in the Democrats. However, #1 paid off #3 to get on board and they brutally shut down #2 (James Clyburn ending the primary fight per Bill Clinton’s mask off comment) and then they ran the second biggest psyop of all time to make them forget all about that and in fact get #2 to line right up behind the interests of #1.

    Proof: While the Democrats platform mentions Transgender about 35 times, they voted like 75-25 against legalizing weed and 75-25 against medicare for all. Most progressive political party platform in history, lmfao

    I don’t know how much influence the rank and file have on the selection.

    How much influence do you think Biden has on the selection? How much influence do you think Biden or his VP/Successor that got picked for him will have on any policy that comes out from here on in? The answer is zero. That’s the true conclusion of what you’re talking about – it does not matter at all which Democrat is in the big chair.

    Purely a front for the shot callers, just a person to fill the seat while the machine operates. They are 100% open about this, even Biden is saying this directly! If they run out of Bench people to be fronts, they will put an actual shot caller in office. Ralph Northam, for example. This is the worst result, much worse than a raging lunatic ideologue. An actual player, who knows how things really work, and knows all the worst ways to hurt the enemy.

    In order to confuse and conquer people like me, Unz would need to get us to be aware of, pay attention to, and care about the other content here.

    So over time, you and others like you read other parts of the site. Just because this takes some amount of time for some people does not mean that this is not the long-term strategy.

    The specific narrative that illegality of immigration is OK if they are Hispanic, and that their crime rate is no higher than that of whites, are what I mean in Step 3 above.

    I think you are capturing some cause-and-effect of UR, but it’s an accident, not a strategy.

    I disagree that it is mere cause-and-effect. It is a strategy, given how sequential the steps are. Below is a link of the 10 most prominent Jews that are sowing confusion within WN while pretending to be allies of it. Ron Unz is not in the Top 10 (or he is seen as a neutral, rather than an ally), but lets say he is #11, for simplicity :

    https://christiansfortruth.com/jews-are-leading-the-alt-right-white-nationalist-movements/

    If you think it is at all possible that Jewish Central Command would want to turn the WN community (which is small and full of very untalented, low IQ men and no women) into controlled opposition in order to garner ongoing sympathy for Jews, then who, pray tell, would they appoint to execute this vision (in addition to the ten people in the list I linked)?

    >One factual quibble with your account: Unz was promoting Hispanics and immigration long before making UR.

    I think saying Unz is promoting elite immigration policies is misleading: he’s one of the first to have revealed how visibly insane they are, both in writing and in person, going back to the Bush II days. There’s a major difference between encouraging more mass immigration and believing assimilation amongst people who are already here is possible and desirable. The former is making an already bad socioeconomic situation for the United States worse, at least for the bottom 75% of the country. The latter’s just accepting reality as it is rather than as you want it to be. Demographics aren’t going back to what they were in 1960, even if immigration completely stops tomorrow, so best to play the long game and win the assimilation battle. First step is getting a breather and time to absorb the influx of the past several decades, just like America did in 1924. But that’s just the first step.

    For my two cents, I think Unz is too sanguine about the security threats the cartels can pose, long-term, to a fluid bordered United States: they have way more potential to pose problems to societal order than the ghettos do, despite the latter hogging the headlines. But I do agree with other points of his: including the fact that Hispanics taking over formerly black neighborhoods meaning curtailed crime rates in cities which they want to gentrify being a factor in elite enthusiasm for mass Mexican immigration, and that unlike SJWs, working class Hispanic immigrant parents usually really, really do not want dual language education programs that would condemn their kids to lives like theirs.

    Half of me hopes the Democrats would be grotesquely dumb enough to nominate Rice as VP… but half of me feels Trump will screw things up, no matter how many softballs the Dems lob for him, and I wouldn’t put it beyond Rice to launch WWIII by accident.

    Even if Biden doesn’t die in office, he’s almost exactly like Trump: not a deep thinker or an Original Thoughts guy, even before possible early onset dementia, and very influenced by the crowd around him. That’s what makes the current VP list deeply scary: the VP attached to Biden is going to have much more de facto authority than your typical VP. The fact that he’s even contemplating Rice after what he went through after the Obama years against Clinton and her regime change enthusiasts speaks volumes.

    I have not read Unz’s work systematically, but I have never read something of his about immigration that was not either disparaging policy attempts to stop or slow it or disparaging the people who were attempting to stop or slow it.

    The stated positions I have read of Unz’s amount to saying, “if Republicans try to stop Mexican immigration, Mexicans already in the USA will hate them”. This is pretty much akin to the type of concern trolling policy advice that Democrats usually give Republicans–because actually they want immigration.

    I agree that we are not going back to 1960s demographics, but the difference between relatively larger or smaller white pluralities may be important in the future, and the essential similarity in the Hispanic vote between Romney and Trump suggests that a theoretical Unz plan for a coalition of hard-working, god-fearing Americans is not very realistic.

    But I would be interested to read an anti-immigration position of Unz’s if it actually exists. Not interested enough to search for it, but interested enough to read it if someone posts a link….

    You missed the opportunity to call Harris a Hindu Dindu.

    As you point out, from the point of view of a core black constituency (churchgoing obese women), a Hindu Dindu ain’t black.

    That said: the Chitlin’ Collective were collectively stupid enough to think that Rastus Hopey-Changey the Magical Mulatto was on their side – although immigrant Nigerians (and their half-breed spawn) tend, on the whole, to despise US blacks.

    She never polled or primaried well. Nobody on the left cares about the empire, and to the extent that they do, they largely support it.

    This is why I think Harris will get the spot. She’s not especially objectionable to any of the constituencies in the party except for progressives, but progressives aren’t able to strenuously object to a woman of color and they’ll fall in line like they always do anyway, because Trump is the most dangerous president in the history of the country. The party likes her and so does Silicon Valley.

    Well, thanks for packing your lunatic ramblings into your most comprehensive comment on this theory of yours to date.

    But you need to be more specific – what does “going in for the kill” involve? So that we can all judge if you were actually right, come Jan 1, 2024.

    According to that article, he ran on keeping the then-current H1b visa system, and reducing other immigration by 50%. However, the implication is that he just thinks immigration is happening too fast for assimilation, but that it is definitely a good thing in the generality. This is just what I would have expected from him, and definitely not what I would call anti-immigration.

    My idea of anti-immigration is zero immigration except for refugees from political persecution, some select people with unique skills in sciences or humanities, and spouses/children of citizens. Plus, I fully endorse the idea of measures to promote voluntary repatriation of aliens as well as the forced repatriation of any alien who falls into the hands of law enforcement by accident. More extremely, I support stripping citizenship from those who have obtained it under their parents’ birthright citizenship tourism. And if we have to have immigration, it should be our long-term neighbors to the south before indentured servants from South and East Asia.

    So, I guess you could say I am completely opposed to Unz’s “anti-immigration” positions.

    The problem with your theory is that most of the other authors and articles on this site are more anti-immigration, more WN, anti-Semitic, etc. than Sailer and Derbyshire.

    If you exclude the foreign affairs and international news articles, the science articles, and the conspiracy theory articles, most of the articles and authors are from explicitly anti-immigration or WN outlets like VDare, The Occidental Observer, Counter Currents, National Justice, etc.

    In other words, there’s very little “confusion” going on.

    Wow, Anatoly Karlin himself came here to comment. This is highly unusual, since he believes that contributing to the traffic of a ‘rival’ blogger means less for him (as the zero-sum thinking in his part of the world goes). If he commented on one of Audie Baby’s threads, that means this is hitting close to home, since Mr. Karlin believes boosting another blogger costs him something.

    I didn’t include Anatoly Karlin in ‘Step 2 : Bad at making money’, since you live outside the West and different economic factors apply, plus most WNs don’t read you. But I could include you going forward, if you insist.

    Now, to answer your question :

    thanks for packing your lunatic ramblings into your most comprehensive comment on this theory of yours to date.

    Just because elite concepts are above your Norwood 2 (going on 3) head does not make someone a ‘lunatic’. But I refer to a comment from Intelligent Dasein for details, lest you think I am only referring to my own points :

    2. The white nationalists have been well and truly punked, but they will never figure it out and probably won’t even care. Before long they will be singing Orwellian madrigals about how white Eurasia was always at PEACE with Talha.

    The essence of the frog being boiled is that it does not notice it is boiled. To wit :

    what does “going in for the kill” involve? So that we can all judge if you were actually right, come Jan 1, 2024.

    Duh. Turning White T**shionalism into fully ‘controlled opposition’ that can be endlessly used as a golden goose to capture sympathy for Jews, and, when useful for Jews, for blacks.

    But you are in Russia, which has no black people and is not a first-world country, so what do you care? It is apparent that your primary interest is that your US$ paycheck from TUR might be under pressure, as you are not nearly as essential to the primary purpose as Steve is. This is not the USSR where make-work jobs can exist.

    You need to up your game under an increasingly competitive field of people vying for TUR paychecks. Why should you get a paycheck ahead of the ‘six excellent commenters’?

    P.S. Oh, and I am not a ‘South Asian’, lest you try to pull that trope as a means of changing the subject. Ron Unz indirectly admitted that he circulated that myth to whip up WN fury so as to distract away from his true purpose. So save it.

    Heh, Heh, Heh.

    Anatoly has done more to promote this blog over the years than almost anyone else has. If he’s an enemy, I don’t have a friend in the world.
