Because there are exactly three genders: 1) Female 2) Male 3) Mentally handicapped Jokes aside, Z-Man devotes an hour to explaining how democracy, if it does not die first, necessarily leads to this. It doesn't stop here. Like a shark, it cannot stop. Once it does, it dies. Until then, it indefatigably moves to be... Read More
From an extensive YouGov poll conducted earlier this week comes the following gem: Fewer than one-in-five (18%) of respondents answered "not sure". Those responses are excluded above. A few other comments: - Some 89% of Trump voters view Israel as either an "ally" or "friendly" to the US. Just 5% view it as an "enemy"... Read More
Vox Day ensures we have "a public record of whose analysis was correct and whose was not". I can think of no better company to be in than Derb's and Z-Man's, though some clarification for the benefit of the historical record is in order. VD: The criticism offered here is qualitatively different than that of... Read More
Nothing causes more outrage than a statement that is both obviously true and fervently wished by everyone to be untrue. Trump's alleged comments were heaven sent. At minimum they stave off DACAmnesty for another couple of months. More likely, they are its swan song. By the time DACA is set to expire in March, primaries... Read More
From the official, blue-checkmarked account of the Democrat party (red markings are my own): Jewish women comprise about 1% of the US population and 1.1% of Congress. They are members of the only female group identified here that is already proportionally--if not slightly over--represented among our national elected officials. Freudian slip, anyone? Yentas get to... Read More
Reuters-Ipsos recently released the results of a poll asking participants how allegations of sexual harassment would impact their senatorial voting behaviors. The following graph shows responses by selected demographic characteristics. Residual responses are "don't know" (N = 3,959): Note the question does not indicate necessary credibility in the accusations, let alone proof of their veracity.... Read More
I want the cord cut. My wife pleads for baseball and NatGeo. So we've settled on Sling, a service that bills itself as "a la carte TV". It's $25 a month for our selections. Last night, through the course of a half-hour show, this ad played three times (at every break): How can young whites... Read More
The indispensable team that allows the Office of Diversity and Equity to do the invaluable work it does fighting the oppressive intolerance of intolerant oppression: The following is pulled from the calendar of upcoming events the irreplaceable office maintains. Tuesday, November 28th: - 1/2 past 10b: Trans and non-binary identities, feminism, and social justice movements... Read More
Junior, who wields the social media rapier exceptionally well, captures why Gen Z is going to be quite problematic for the cultural commissars indeed: A theme revisited frequently here is that being on the left in The Current Year means spending all your time and energy coming up with different ways to say "that is... Read More
From Reuters-Ipsos, a poll on the following: The subsequent graph shows, by selected demographics, the percentages who agree. "Neither agree nor disagree" responses, which 17.6% of those sampled answered with, are excluded (n = 4,670): Notice the y-axis begins at 50%. That's because even among gays, the group expressing the least concern about political correctness,... Read More
The totalitarian instinct on display: In the way of background, "The Incredible Doctor Pol" program is a reality show based in rural central Michigan that follows the professional activities in doctor Jan Pol's veterinarian office and of members of his staff as they're doing field visits. The county Pol operates in, like the state itself,... Read More
Heartiste, rhetorically fleshing out the unnaturalness of "the totalitarian impulse of your garden variety social scientist femme", in the context of a recent study showing that putatively liberal, open-minded college students tend to react to interracial couples with disgust: To assert that the aversion to miscegenation is some sort of social construct rather than an...

[If following this link from the Twitter post on scientific literacy, please see here] In his April Diary, the Derb brought up posts from the Inductivist (still relatively active here) and the Occidentalist concerning changes over time in the self-reported perceptions of why "on the average blacks have worse jobs, income, and housing than whites...

In a characteristically perspicacious Taki's Magazine article, Steve Sailer writes: A couple of clarifying comments I should've fleshed out more fully in previous posts: - For the cohort having attended college in the 2010s, 100.0 may be more than 2 points above the population mean. The total sample is based on an assumption of a... Read More
As a closing follow up to the previous post, here is the very first image returned for a search on "racist": Here are the top results on "hate": There are no victims, only volunteers. This is what we're up against. Do not ever forget it.
I'm doing a little work on a textbook. The publisher has free access to istockphoto.com, a service I hadn't previously heard of but provides images similar to the Shutterstock pictures you've probably seen included in various online articles and the like. I was looking for an image of a shoplifter for one of the modules... Read More
The following ten graphs come from GSS data. Because the US census doesn't ask about religious affiliation, empirical comparisons of Jews and Gentiles can be hard to come by. Sample sizes vary depending on the number(s) of survey years each question was put to respondents. Results are presented with default scaling from Excel 2003: This... Read More
The phrase "fake news" is a beast that has, in a matter of months, been entirely turned on the people who released it on us. Our appropriation has been so thorough that CultMarxists are now insinuating that it originated on the alt right, inspired of course by Hitler: Having lost control of "fake news", they... Read More
A few comments: - Why did he contract with a major publisher like Simon and Schuster? Milo's celebrity has skyrocketed over the last year. He had become a powerful brand name in his own right, to such an extent that long before his book was even written--let alone published--it was a bestseller on Amazon. Simon... Read More
When the US discriminated against non-Jewish immigrants in the early nineties, the courts let it be because immigration is strictly the purview of the executive. When the Clinton administration targeted Cubans for deportation (i.e. Elian Gonzalez), the courts let it be because immigration is strictly the purview of the executive. When Arizona tried to enforce... Read More
Robert Reich (via Steve Sailer): On the other side of the Atlantic, from the UK government and the crony capitalists it is enriching in the name of fighting hate (via Vox Day): The hivemind is using the same description everywhere. Googling "Breitbart far right" returns 941,000 results. Everyone is Hitler, everything is -ist or -phobic,... Read More
Excerpting TWCS, Heartiste talks about quantifying the costs of Diversity!, the structure of which is characterized by an iceberg effect with the most conspicuous costs representing a small fraction of the total while the most go unnoticed by all but the few who deliberately look for them. While TWCS defeated the kraken, I'll throw my... Read More
The idea that violence is primarily being done by Trump supporters against Trump opponents has become increasingly risible over the last year-and-a-half. It's long since passed the point of absurdity and has now reached the point of being embarrassing even for most moderate leftists to treat seriously. The quantity of video evidence refuting the blood... Read More
I'd meant to pass comment on this last year but let it get lost in the sauce. It's an illustration of leftist logic at its finest. Dave Matthews in a Rolling Stone interview: We have the front man for the most successful touring band in history, his net worth is estimated at $300 million, claiming... Read More
Trump's shattering expectations. I got on the Trump Train back in July 2015 for three primary reasons: 1) Immigration -- his candidacy was a referendum on a wall. 2) Political correctness -- any other political figure who'd said one-tenth of the things he did would've been toast. Instead of groveling, he doubled down. Rather than... Read More
Malcolm Pollack excerpting thoughts on the Equalism myth:If Nature smiles at the union of freedom and equality in our utopias, She bursts into laughter at the union of freedom, equality, and diversity in our utopias. When one prevails, the other two die. Liberty, equality, or diversity--choose one. Just one.Even the most nightmarish Orwellian IngSoc state,... Read More
Here are several smug celebrities doing things like telling Ann Coulter to "kill yourself" (43s) and comparing her to a "skeleton" (1m18s) and a horse (1m40s):
Before getting into tactical considerations, let me reiterate that an alpha male shooting the shit in private with a few other guys is harmless. Even more, it's cathartic for a lot of men. In an increasingly feminized world where men have fewer and fewer venues in which they are able to interact exclusively with other... Read More
As Hillary was going on about the strength and vibrancy of our black communities:I said to my monitor--hoping to psychically sync up with Trump--"ha, yeah and I'm sure you're moving to one after you lose this election. There aren't any blacks in Chappaqua, folks."I've started taking a similar approach in realtalk conversations (which are increasingly all... Read More
Google search volumes over the last year: The Alt-Right hadn't even been seriously addressed by major media prior to Hillary's speech spotlighting it. All those people who've launched the term into the stratosphere will, if they move beyond the headlines of the last couple of days will find members of the Alt-Right where they are.... Read More
Stefan Molyneux and Scott Adams tee it up:
The Trump phenomenon is the deadliest foe political correctness has ever faced. It's not lost on his backers. To the contrary, after immigration it is quite possibly the next single biggest driver of his support. From a Pew report on PC culture: Trump supporters are more hostile to political correctness than Republicans as a whole... Read More
This PRI's The World report is delightfully painful to listen to. The show's host, Marco Werman, is an archetypal SWPL who has NPR's breathy unctuousness to a tee. In typical mainstream media fashion he is gently guiding the correspondent at the RNC into insinuating that Trump supporters at the convention are one overly zealous mark... Read More
According to The Atlantic, the brownies are "still mostly white" (still? But of course. They need to change, they have to change, and they will change!). The first several photos or pictures depicting actual people, as opposed to just the green and white logo or cookie boxes, returned from a Google images search on the... Read More
Charlotte empowers a fraction of 1% of the population to rub their insecurities in the faces of the 99% and change who find sex-segregated restrooms a uncontroversial aspect of civilized society. The state of North Carolina responds by mandating sex-segregated restrooms, legally overriding Charlotte's tranny triumph. The state law only applies to schools and other government... Read More
It's not obvious to me that Trump's abortion comments will hurt him, particularly in the upcoming Republican primaries. From the GSS, the percentages of men and women, by political orientation, who do not think it should be "possible for a pregnant woman to obtain an abortion" without restriction. For contemporary relevance and to avoid racial... Read More
Why is Trump getting so deeply under the left's skin while True Conservative Republicans like Cruz and Kasich barely register? The answer is complex, but allow me to take a stab at the heart of it. Kasich and Cruz, like the rest of Conservative, Inc, are propositionalists. They believe that with the correct incentives in... Read More
Here's Dubya in October of 2000 complaining about 'racial' profiling of Arabs in US airports:Trump's candidacy is a referendum on a wall along the US-Mexico border. During the South Carolina debate, the success of his candidacy also became a repudiation of the Dubya/McCain/Graham/neocon Republicanism of the last two decades.Tangentially, I still see assertions that Trump...

Trump did even better among voters concerned primarily by the issues than by things like perceived leadership, personal qualities, celebrity status, etc. The celebrity trope is a red herring. It's the immigration, the reluctance to start World War III, and the disregard for PC shibboleths that have propelled Trump to the top.
New guidelines for Olympic competitions will now allow transgenders who are females pretending to be males to compete against men without restriction. It's tempting to write this off as entirely ideological without any realized consequences in actual competitions, since a reasonable working assumption may be that women can't compete with men in any Olympic competition...

The United Kingdom's talk of banning Donald Trump is to Google's perpetual homage to diversity as the United Kingdom's failure to absorb anything more than a token of the Syrian-plus migration is to Google's failure to hire women and non-Asian minorities. While the tactics of both the UK and Google are comprehensible, they are no... Read More
Via the great magnate, Google's tribute to 2015's "year in search":
Back in August, when Donald Trump was perceived as a political novelty, explaining away the enormous amount of search interest he generated--more than the other 15 Republican candidates combined--may have sounded plausible. Fast-forward to December. Five 'debates' are in the books and perpetual campaign coverage has now run from the hottest month of the year... Read More
If instead of calling for a moratorium on Muslim immigration, Trump had called for a 30% reduction, what would the reactions have been? I suspect they would've been virtually indistinguishable from the apoplectic reactions what he called for set off. The idea of restricting immigration, in any degree, from a group that has put Europe's... Read More
Today, Trump tweeted: And on facebook posted: Whatever his buildings are worth, his Overton Window is worth much, much more. Parenthetically, AE is now active on twitter.
Pathological altruism--a mind disease closely related to political correctness that may prove terminal to western civilization--on display (assuming the alleged crime occurred): Yes, this is an extreme example of it, but there are WEIRDOs reading this who will reflexively direct more anger at me for pointing out this heinous but avoidable tragedy than they will...

Steve Sailer writes: Ted Cruz strikes me as the most likely pick. - His voice has been conspicuously absent from the attack Trump candidate chorus, even when there has been almost nothing to lose from piling on. Cruz even refrained from going after Trump following his assertion that being captured by your enemy doesn't necessarily... Read More
We're told from as early as elementary school that voting is our civic duty. The Establishment collectively laments low voter turnout. Outfits like Rock the Vote don't have any specific interest in increasing voter participation rates because the most marginally committed voters tend to vote for the left, of course! No, no, they just want... Read More
