The Derb:

Had you even heard the expression “asylum-seeker” five years ago? (In an American context, I mean. In Europe, where the asylum racket has been general knowledge for much longer, everyone’s long since used to hearing “asylum-seeker.”)

He nailed it. From Trends, first in the US:

And then for the UK:

Guess which American state generates the highest relative search volume. Hint: It’s not representative Omar’s, which comes in tied for thirteenth. It’s much more deplorably white even than that–the whitest in the country, in fact (for a few more years, anyway).

    Using Ngram to try to extend the story back further:

    According the British English corpus, “aslyum seeker” as a term emerged in the late 1980s and rose most dramatically in the period 1994-1996, after which it was steady a while. Its second upsurge began in 2002. A cross-corpus frequency comparison with American English finds BE usage dwarfing AmE usage every step of the way, as follows:

    Scaled such that 100 = British English corpus’ frequency for phrase “asylum seeker” in 2004

    American English Ngram corpus
    1990: 1
    1995: 6
    2000: 6
    2004: 12

    British English Ngram corpus
    1990: 4
    1995: 29
    2000: 58
    2004: 100

    “Aslyee” vs. “Aslyum Seeker” is also interesting to look at: in AmE, “Asylee” gets more hits most years into the early 2000s, whereas in BE “asylum seeker” wins out already by 1988.

    Then there is the dramatic arc of the German term, “Asylbewerber,” which emerged in the late 1970s, well before “asylum seeker” in English. Make of that what you will.

    “Asylbewerber” shows a distinct peak in the early 1990s (1992). The 1992-centered spike must be associated with two particular events: First was the Hoyerswerda incident of 1991 in which local German young men and a small number of African migrants that had been placed in Hoywerswerda (a town in East Germany) fought it out, with the Germans winning the day and the Africans being shipped elsewhere. Other local foreigners soon left town as sporadic violence continued, and an asylum center was attacked. (Why was there an aslyum center for Muslims and Africans in a place like Hoyerswerda? A nowheresville.)

    A few months later came the larger Rostock riots, depicted in the media as local hotheads attacking an asylum center following hundreds of these Muslim Asylbewerber being dumped on a particular neighborhood in Rostock.

    I know what you’re thinking — In retrospect, these mini incidents do seem to foreshadow the Merkel Betrayal of 2015-2016 and ongoing reaction thereto. It shows that the Merkel Treason of 2015 was not such a dramatic break in policy. Just a ramp-up.

    The Chemnitz incident of Aug. 2018 was similar to these two from the early 1990s, except that the actors were b.1980s and b.1990s whereas most of the young men at Hoyerswerda and Rostock would have been b.1960s and b.1970s. The same ‘tropes’ of “nationalists hunting down foreigners” were all over the German and world media in August 2018 about Chemnitz, as many will recall. (Much less mentioned was the fact that Chemnitz began after a gang of asylum seekers attempting to rape a German girl and then murdered a local man who intervened and hospitalized two others).

    Anyway, I suspect Asylbewerber (asylum seeker) became something of a negative-connotation word in German after these incidents, and new, more PC terms steadily began to take its place. A similar move has supposedly been underway in German with the word “Refugee” (Flüchtling), with many on the ethnomasochist Left proposing to not use it anymore because of its negative connotations following the many incidents of violence by Muslim refugees.

    You think the good citizens of Maine are voting for this?

    https://www.ccmaine.org/refugee-immigration-services

    Maine’s only refugee resettlement program, Catholic Charities Maine Refugee and Immigration Services (RIS) is dedicated to helping those seeking a new life in America become independent, productive members of our community.

    From cultural orientation and referrals to case management and ongoing support (see our full list of services here), we are committed to providing the highest quality professional resettlement, orientation, employment, and cultural adjustment services to those refugees assigned to our care.

    Last I checked, Maine’s population was something like 14% Catholic. There’s a lot of religiously non-affiliated people in Maine, but Open Borders is the state’s secular religion, inflicted on all citizens whether they like it or not.

    Just two Catholic volags received the lion’s share of federal refugee resettlement dollars from 1996 to 2011. One of them (US Conference of Catholic Bishops) was founded with major organizing help from Saul Alinsky. The bishops and the faithful alike still consider that a matter of pride.

    You’d think they would have learned something from Lewiston.

    That depends who they is. The “good” compassionate people importing these unassimilable masses never cared what happens to Lewiston, Maine, or anywhere else, as showing compassion and showing that they are compassionate to others is the important thing.

    If, by “they”, you mean the poor bastards who’ve got to live with the huge change to their quality of life and culture for now on (with always a downward trend), well, think about how this works:

    “We’re just bringing in downtrodden families, plus maybe a couple of poor teenagers, from Somalia. I hope there are no racist xenophobes here. If so, it’s only 15 asylum-seekers to our town of 40 thousand – how can you be so mean and nasty to object?!” Well, nobody objects. Nobody in town wants to have everyone else there look at him like that nasty foul-mouthed bad guy that isn’t compassionate enough to provide a “room at the inn”.*

    At the next asylum-seeker meeting for another 20 asylum-seekers, its just the same, except you won’t even find 1/2 the people there from town to show up to object, as they can imagine how embarrassing it would be. This goes on for years, and people have kids. People find it easier to move to a different town than to say anything. (You’d think that’d be silly… but no.)

    .

    * Now, if they had gotten together ahead of time, with 100 men of the community putting together a presentation on what happened in the last “Lewiston, Maine” after it got inundated with “aslyum-seekers” and proudly resisted, it may have never gone that far. However, people are too deep into their bread and circuses to have time for this. It also takes guys with real guts.

    “Anyways, I don’t see the border being closed. It may be closed through violence, or eventual balkanization, or not at all. But it’s never going to happen politically.”

    Only because the Capital is too far away from the action. Maybe we’d get action if boatloads of refugees started showing up on the Potomac.

  10. @Olorin

    You think the good citizens of Maine are voting for this?

    They haven’t voted to cut back the welfare gibs that attracted the Zoomalis as secondary migrants from across the USA.  Pare those down and make welfare a community thing through e.g. churches and such, and the welfare parasites will go elsewhere.

    Just making most welfare an on-going affair handled by the community will get rid of a lot of the pathological aspects.  Right now the volags “settle” rapefugees, hook them up with government services, collect their payoff and go on to the next.  Eliminate most of those services and it becomes impossible to dump parasites.  If seeing after the community becomes the job of people who are actually in the COMMUNITY (not bureaucrats enlarging their empires), it’s much easier to present a hostile face to those who are burdens and enemies.

  13. @The Alarmist

    I don’t know why right-wingers don’t organize mass marches to DC. Clog up the city, make your presence known.

    In Canada we had a similar event recently, the United We Roll convoy. It was a convoy of trucks driving cross-country from Alberta, ending up in Ottawa at the Parliament. They parked their convoy of 200 cars and trucks right in front of Parliament Hill, and walked right up and demonstrated. They blared their horns, snarled traffic, and attracted leftist counter-protesters.

    But the politicians took notice – a handful of Conservative MP’s came out and addressed the protesters. Trudeau and all the other politicians also talked about the rally.

    It wasn’t much, but this small convoy of Albertans managed to bring up a huge amount of talk about their cause – in the CAPITAL CITY, which is the key. If it was in Calgary, Ottawa won’t care.

    Why not get a similar thing going in the USA? If there were 1,000 angry truckers in D.C., maybe the GOPe would actually be forced to confront their voter base.

    It only took one fake Amerind ‘Nam vet to scandalize the March for Life.

    When the left rioted in “Disrupt J20” scaring off Trump supporters from attending the inauguration, the DC courts dropped charges months later. (The small crowd has been a continual humiliation, because Trump lies about the size).

    There’s a certain size barrier necessary to generate “safety in numbers”. Our people have a justified fear of doxxing.

    Also, iirc, the CBC freaked out about that trucker demo because Faith Goldy was present. Her presence was unhelpful, honestly her presence anywhere in politics is unhelpful.

    It is a simple euphemism treadmill. Before Asylbewerber (asylum seeker) came up, Asylant (asylant) was used. Now that Flüchtling (refugee) becomes outdated, words like Geflüchtete (escapees) Schutzsuchende (protection seekers) or even Fluchtsuchende (escape seekers) came up.

    Possibly the open-borders folks in the big cities and University towns just think that they can still find that nice little American town when they retire, after they’ve “done all the good I can here.”

    Adding up the numbers in that table, the Hebrew International Aid Society got $122.906 million from 1996 to 2011. While the US Conference of Catholic Bishops received only $3.208 million in that period. That’s just in nominal terms, not 2011 dollars. The Hebrews got $24 million in 1996 and $20 million in 1998, a hell lot of money back than, $697K in 2000 was the most the Catholic Bishops Conference ever received.

    In 2011 the International Rescue Committee from New York, headed by David Miliband, got the lion’s share of the funds – $11.5 million. The Catholic Bishops got one twenty third of that- $500K.

    Every time I saw a director of a refugee or an immigrant advocacy non-profit on TV whining, it was a Jew, just an observation from my personal experience.

    Just a quick internet search for refugee help centers in Maine turns up more than just Catholic organizations:

    There are lots of third worlders in areas bordering D.C. In Northern Virginia lots of Central Americans, East Africans, Arabs, etc. In Montgomery County lots of people from West Africa, Asia, MENA, etc. In fact, in the Washington, D.C.-Baltimore megalopolis 70% of the school kids are from immigrant families. And we ain’t talking Germany, Sweden, Japan, Korea, or any other first-world region.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/70-of-school-districts-newest-students-are-immigrants-legal-status-unknown

    70 percent of school district’s newest students are immigrants, legal status unknown

    Seven of 10 new students in a Baltimore-Washington area school district are immigrants, their legal status unknown and their second language English, according to a series of new media reports about the impact of surging immigration on local communities.

    A recent Baltimore Sun report said that of the 5,000 new students jamming Baltimore County schools in the past five years, 3,500 are “recent immigrants or children whose family speak another language.”

    That has helped to double the percentage of students who speak English as a second language, part of a national trend…

    …In the Washington communities the percentages are even higher than in Baltimore County. CIS said that 78 percent of the students in Annandale and West Falls Church, Va. schools are from immigrant homes.

    “The number of children from immigrant households in schools is now so high in some areas that it raises profound questions about assimilation. What’s more, immigration has added enormously to the number of public school students who are in poverty and the number who speak a foreign language. This cannot help but to create significant challenges for schools, often in areas already struggling to educate students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds…

    The “Trumpeteers” (myself included) did a great job of getting him *into* office. But the day he got in, all of that energy suddenly vanished, replaced by a torrent of unhinged and angry left wingers.

    Unfortunately they seemed to make the mistake of believing that things would be alright once their guy was in office.

    Here’s the thing – you can never afford to be complacent with the anti-white left wing. It’s a religion for them. They are religious fanatics, and white men are the devil. Middle class and working class whites just went back to work on November 9, apparently ignorant of this fact.

    Now they seem scared and cowardly. It’s quite disgusting, especially considering their munitions stockpiles, that right wingers can’t even manage a march on DC. The constitution (Muh freedom) is a big block for any kind of right wing resurgence there. It’s just not in your blood. Every true far right American I’ve talked to is a total sperg, compared with Canadians who are serious and dedicated (and we pale in comparison to the European far right communities).

    Same thing in the suburbs of Toronto. FOB immigrants are packing into brand new suburban neighborhoods, where a detached house will cost $750,000 – minimum.

    I have no idea where they get this money from. I assume some are from wealthy families “back home”, but from what I hear even the “wealthy” (outside the 0.1%) in India don’t have anywhere close to this kind of money.

    They are either taking out massive, lifetime mortgages, or there is some kind of government conspiracy to subsidize their housing. I keep hoping for a crash, because things will get interesting once these brown invaders are no longer able to make their house payments.

    The US doesn’t have a “foreign buyer tax” as Ontario and British Columbia have. IIRC, PEI doesn’t even let foreigners buy property.

    Immigrants tend to have much stronger extended families than non-Jewish, non-Armenian, non-Amish whites. It’s a lot easier to get an interest-free loan from your relatives and/or religious congregation.

    Also, that link is from Baltimore County, MD, just outside Baltimore City which is arguably the worst city in the US, except for perhaps Detroit or New Orleans. So housing there is rather cheap by Northeast standards.

    It’s generational, the Boomer cohort is 90% white, and there is still the expectation of following “The Procedure” as the Z-man calls it.

    Protests and boycotts are not typically thought of as a right-wing activity, as the US right is highly individualist, and those actions are “collectivist” (which is a literal perjorative for some people).

    The Silent/Boomer Tea Party protests of the early Obama years didn’t achieve much beyond an initial fooling a sizeable number of people that the protests were populist rather than conservative. Once the Tea Party was “captured” the energy went away. There was a trope of many people saying “this was the first protest they had been to”.

    Conservatives tend to be about the established forces in society, so its unseemly to be taking to the streets when you can just write letters, attend meetings, vote, etc. The aforementioned Tea Parties had a major PR disaster when Anti-Islam and Birther signs started showing up in the crowds. Media types had a field day.

    If you are familiar with the Rush Limbaugh show, for years he counter-signalled against boycotts, and never attempted to get his vast audience to counter-boycott those trying to get him deplatformed. Rush laughed all the way to the bank, after three prior wives cleaned him out in divorce.

    Are we to the point where showing up for a Trump rally is a doxxing threat? I don’t think so. He draws tens of thousands.

    What would really set the world on fire is if Trump invited deplorables across the country to come to DC on a certain day. But he doesn’t seem disciplined enough to really push it. He can drum up crowds of tens of thousands in flyover country, still, on a few days’ notice. I think he could pull off something similar in DC, hostile as the territory is, if he consistently pushed it over a long period of time.

    Another is ‘Gypsy’ –> ‘Roma’ –> ‘Romani.’

    It is inherently suspicious when a group of people constantly change the name they ask others to call them (or have cultural handlers do so). The several rebrandings of Blacks in the USA are a well-known example, but the Muslim-heavy “migration stock” in Western Europe have had even more rebrandings in the past thirty years. A linguistic linguistic admission that they are a burden.

    Relatedly, when exactly did (American-)English lose the word “Foreigner”? Technically the word still exists, but it is never used (unironically) anymore. Never. If you see a headline with the word ‘Foreigner’ it it, you can be pretty much 100% sure it is not a U.S.-based publication.

The army discharge one soldier right afterward with the excuse of “that was just the last straw. This guy had already violated this, that, and the other policy, etc.” (I don’t know the truth of this.) However, just after that the British soldiers made a video called “I am Soldier X” or something like that. What can the army do them, really, discharge a bunch of more “suspects”. They will eventually have a mutiny.

He has become, in short, just what the System has been trying to make of him these past 50 years or so: a mass-man; a member of the great, brainwashed proletariat; a herd animal; a true democrat.

    Some immigrants are from rich or affluent families, usually the business owners. They often have start-up capital from family. Immigrant business owners sometimes employ a few non-family members who are US citizens, albeit chain-migration staffing helps to keep the money in the family.

    Chain-migration staffing is not racist since non-whites do it.

    In more affluent neighborhoods, there is a lot of house renting, with some big groups of immigrant (and other) youths coming and going, splitting the cost of high rent. They work in a temporary capacity for big US corporations.

    Big US corporations churn revolving-door temps, not just high-wage temps who can afford to rent nice houses in big groups. They also churn low-wage temps who cannot afford to cover the rent on a one-room apartment between churn jobs unless they have spousal income or are welfare-eligible due to womb productivity in a single-breadwinner household.

    There are also a few affluent, older immigrants who appear to house a lot of revolving-door guests—likely relatives coming in legally to work. These relatives may pay some rent, helping the immigrant owners to pay off their house note sooner.

    As with the welfare-eligible immigrants who keep wages low for non-welfare-eligible citizens at the bottom of the wage scale, there is a lot of anchoring womb productivity with groups of higher-paid temp-worker immigrants.

    Albeit, the higher-paid, womb-productive, visa-worker immigrants do not qualify for monthly welfare that eliminates major bills, like rent and food. Nor do they get the refundable child tax credits up to $6,431 for US-born kids that the low-wage legal / illegal immigrants enjoy.

    The higher-paid, womb-productive immigrant temp workers do benefit from the non-refundable child tax credit up-hike, passed by Trump and the Republican Congress. It bumps up their wages by several thousand.

    They may send some of that extra money from the progressive tax code back home, like the low-wage illegal immigrants who send $28 billion in remittances out of the USA to relatives in Mexico each year in a de-facto foreign-aid program with no congressional oversight.

    Billions in remittance cash probably helps the immigrants keep back-up living quarters available in their home countries, although it is presented as altruistic, self-sacrificing family devotion by the media.

    We have no idea how cozy extended-family living is for the much-glorified groups of immigrants.

    The US media paints an idyllic picture of all immigrants that is contradicted by everything from entrenched, intergenerational, welfare-assisted poverty in some less-affluent groups of immigrants to multiple mass murders by terrorists who were raised in more-affluent immigrant communities.

    Immigrants probably experience some of the same and some different social pressures than groups of native-born US citizens, living more frequently in extended-family households due to 40 years of falling wages and out-of-control housing inflation, caused in part by mass-scale, welfare-aided immigration.

    Also a relevant quote from The Turner Diaries:

    Proof positive that everything we see today was obvious back in 1978. And going back a bit farther..

    I know your race. It is made up of sheep. It is governed by minorities, seldom or never by majorities. It suppresses its feelings and its beliefs and follows the handful that makes the most noise. Sometimes the noisy handful is right, sometimes wrong; but no matter, the crowd follows it. The vast majority of the race, whether savage or civilized, are secretly kind-hearted and shrink from inflicting pain, but in the presence of the aggressive and pitiless minority they don’t dare to assert themselves. Think of it! One kind-hearted creature spies upon another, and sees to it that he loyally helps in iniquities which revolt both of them. Speaking as an expert, I know that ninety- nine out of a hundred of your race were strongly against the killing of witches when that foolishness was first agitated by a handful of pious lunatics in the long ago. And I know that even to-day, after ages of transmitted prejudice and silly teaching, only one person in twenty puts any real heart into the harrying of a witch. And yet apparently everybody hates witches and wants them killed. Some day a handful will rise up on the other side and make the most noise–perhaps even a single daring man with a big voice and a determined front will do it–and in a week all the sheep will wheel and follow him, and witch-hunting will come to a sudden end.

    Monarchies, aristocracies, and religions are all based upon that large defect in your race–the individual’s distrust of his neighbor, and his desire, for safety’s or comfort’s sake, to stand well in his neighbor’s eye. These institutions will always remain, and always flourish, and always oppress you, affront you, and degrade you, because you will always be and remain slaves of minorities. There was never a country where the majority of the people were in their secret hearts loyal to any of these institutions.

    70 years earlier by Sam Clemens. The complacency will continue until one’s survival depends on its abandonment. Some of us, the most vigilant of our race, see what lies ahead and try to awaken the masses, but the majority will sleep until our ship is aground on the rocky shoals.

    Indeed, our inhibitions with regard to “profanity” give additional impact to certain words and allow us to emphasize points in a manner otherwise difficult or impossible. It’s the only value I can find in the infantilization of language. Every time I hear someone say “n word” I think immediately of a toddler saying, “mommy, I gotta make the p word.” I hear this and I know at once I’m looking at either a beaten down coward or a mental infant.

    From the perspective of the language police, the value is much clearer. For them, when a word acquires negative connotation through association with a negative subject, as has been discussed in these threads recently with refugee and above with (censored), it provides two benefits. First, it’s a statement of power – the power to silence the opposition by removing the very word used to describe a subject. Second, it’s a means to redefine a negative as a positive or at least a neutral. We all know that (censored) are low intelligence, violent, and lacking in self-control so we call them “African-American” in the hope that like magic the new nomenclature will change their nature. And even when it doesn’t, it sure feels good to exercise our power over those inferior redneck crackers when we catch them still using that bad old word!

    Every time we concede to the censor, we give up another bit of our power to squarely face truth. We step deeper into the delusional fantasy world of the communist or Puritan tyrant. Eventually, reality reasserts itself and the new word regains the meaning of the old erased word, and the process begins anew – giving the censor yet another opportunity to beat us down and demonstrate his power over us.

Surely the sound waves aren’t going to hurt me. Now I may object to having this naked ape disturbing my peace, but that’s independent of the coherence of the noises he is making and any meaning I ascribe to them isn’t it? In terms of actual de-humanization, I’m again at a bit of a loss. Calling our species “naked ape” as I did above and Desmond Morris did in his tome of that title in ‘67, must certainly be de-humanizing to the JewGod fanatics who think we are created in their deity’s image.

    They haven’t voted to cut back the welfare gibs

    Read the sources I listed. The enabling “gibs”–the foundation of the people trafficking ziggurat–are coming from outside the state. Often even outside the US.

    How do the people of Maine “vote against” welfare when the funds enabling access to it are not of state origin? If they then “vote against” welfare in state, then they are hurting natives of Maine, who are still vast majority white (which is why the state is targeted for forced melanization in the name of Jesus).

    Not that I think “voting” solves a damn thing because the process is set up specifically to make sure it won’t. But you are ignoring the fact that the people being moved into Maine are there thanks to the actions of people traffickers.

    That’s not something Maine voters have a say in. They have no power over these independent actors who operate tax free to boot!

    Remember also that those welfare dollars don’t stop with the migrants. They are washed through migrants to social workers, landlords, Big Pharma, Big Ag, energy/utility companies, Micro$oft, Apple, Comcast, retailers, etc.

    “Welfare” is one of those words that hides facts like that in 2013, 1 in 3 Americans received a share of about $115 billion in “food aid.”

    Where did that money end up?

    Ask Nestle, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Tyson, Mondelez, Kraft/Heinz, Monsanto, ADM, Cargill, IBP…

    Then the work of redpilled Catholics is cut out for them, innit?

    FWIW, I knew/worked with many Catholic faithful in the Upper Midwest (rural and city) and NE (mostly city) over the course of about 15 years. My policy work involved coordination with many different groups and perspectives.

    I’d say that a good 70% knew of the “Alinskyite nature” of USCCB…and approved. They approved of Vatican II, liberation theology, abortion, the Sandinistas, homosexuality, divorce on demand, premarital sex, and open borders immigration.

    They also voted for Obama. Twice.

    They read “The Challenge of Peace in our Time” by Joseph Bernadin, the gay archbishop, and held talk/prayer sessions on it. They hammered on the nosecones of nuclear missiles or whatever they could access at missile sites. They quoted Marx and Michael King and Che. They agonized over the increasing Gini coefficient of the US. (“Perfect equality is a Gini coefficient of 0, where everyone has the same income.”) Their church covered up the causes of this.

    I knew a LOT of Catholic faithful…and the socialist/communist/Jewish type of social messaging/political action was fine with them as an expression of their Catholic faith. I knew a couple of nuns and priests in rural Iowa who assigned Alinsky as a workshop reading in how to organize immigrant farm workers.

    My impression was that they acted in a deplorable state of innocence of what they were doing.

    For I think it might be more accurate to say that no one had ever pointed out to them how their beliefs and compassion and altruism and genuine innocence had been colonized and parasitized by people very hostile to them. This carefully engineered exploitation is part of what is getting teased out and combed like flax for spinning in the Present Year on the “dissident right.”

    In any event, I’ve seen a lot of anguish in the past few decades among the left/liberal Catholic faithful I’ve known. White altruism is highly exploitable by those competing with white men and women for territory, resources, and mates. Plus I never found it easy to talk to centrist to liberal Catholics about the JQ…or often even possible.

    I hope I’m making sense. It’s late, after a very long couple of days, so I’ll just leave this here, and good night to all.

    I’ve definitely arrived at this confluence through a different rivulet than a lot of others here.

    Slurs invariably turn the focus from the points you’re making onto you, don’t they?

    Yes, another one of the left’s erstwhile favorites–alongside Nietzsche–who is becoming a hate figure for them in real time.

    While a soft landing is still possible without violence, that’s my absolute preference.

    The idea that a people who won’t even reproduce themselves are going to get into a hot war strikes me as absurd, but I long ago forswore evaluating books I’ve not read.

  90. @Mr. Rational

    I respect the angle you’re coming at this from.

    On the other hand, I’ve been on the dissident right for 15 years, nearly my entire adult life, and I’ve never heard as much realtalk among normies as I hear now. It’s Stefan Molyneux’s approach, not Andrew Anglin’s, that is responsible for that, I think.

    They’re also a form of desensitization therapy, when the genocidal nation-wreckers are trying to hype “sensitivity” to insane levels as a way to silence us.

    We need to have a measured but serious disregard for “sensitivity”, both in our refusal to apologize for using “hate facts” and mild but edge-pushing terminology.

    Slurs used in an argument perhaps yes. If you and I disagree and I utter an expletive about your ancestry it says more about me than about you, such is the nature of ad hominem. But using an expletive for its impact is different. “That hurt!” isn’t the same as “Goddamn it that fucking hurt!” So it’s pretty useful really to have some racial words that perform as modifiers in the same way. Everybody knows and does it, but the language cops insist it’s taboo and use it to bludgeon their enemies. There’s the nice polite older negro who held the door for you when your hands were full and then there’s the damn nigger who cut you off in traffic. Or conversely there’s the nice white lady who told you that you left your wallet on the table and then there’s the ignorant cracker who took the last bagel from the breakfast buffet. The words exist because they’re useful.

    What’s obvious yet we’re not allowed to notice is that sensible people choose to own their otherwise supposedly derogatory words. Gay men use “fag” more than most straight men do. Lesbians use “dyke”. Spend any time around negroes and you’ll hear “nigger” more than at any Klan rally. They use it so commonly they’ve created a modifier “ratchet” to denote an egregiously bad example. Indeed, the base word is most frequently used as a term of endearment in the same way gays use “fag” or I (and Central Floridians) use the word “cracker” or “redneck.” So the PC nonsense is again used as an assertion of power by the leftists and by the Puritan status signalers on the right rather than by well-adjusted rational people. Negroes have latched onto this power expression in the last 20-30 years as I recall in the 70’s and 80’s it was commonplace to hang out with some negro friends and acquaintances and call out some jackass negro as a “nigger” while my associates took absolutely no offense whatsoever. Those who did take offense were the aforementioned leftist proto-SJWs and the churchian types. I don’t get out as much these days so I can’t be sure things have changed that much outside the social media outrage culture. If it truly has changed, it’s a mark of evidence that things have gotten that much worse, that all the manufactured outrage has eroded the ability of people of different races to get along amicably without one wielding a bludgeon over the other who cowers in fear.

    Anyway, in deference to your delicate sensibilities and because it’s more impactful to write “stupid violent criminal (censored)” on your blog, that’s what I’ll do unless the conversation of the preceding paragraphs makes it necessary for clarity. It’s what I’ve always done on any Unz comment thread primarily because it’s a bit of a highbrow venue and audience and the word in question is pretty lowbrow. I don’t think anybody else here has had much exposure or experience in the gritty world of the underclass.

    The enabling “gibs”–the foundation of the people trafficking ziggurat–are coming from outside the state.

    Wrong.  The specific benefits which drew Somalis from across the USA to Lewiston are particular to Maine, and perhaps some of them specifically to Lewiston.  Get rid of them, or modify them so that Somalis find it impractical or distasteful to qualify for them, and they will stop coming.

    The time to have pushed that was right after the Zoomalis murdered Donald Giusti in Lewiston, but it may not be too late yet.

  94. @Stan d Mute

    I understand where that’s coming from and I don’t disagree about its shorthand utility.

    A reality we have to contend with now though is that we’re in a twitter world. If a 280-character excerpt will render you unreadable by 99% of the population, it’s self-defeating.
