It does not look upon them favorably. Excepting the proper noun "White House" and an instance in reference to the Ryan White fund, the following excerpts exhaustively contextualize contemporary official Democrat doctrine on whites and whiteness: The string "white" makes 23 appearances in the document but is notably absent from the list of "all our...

The correlation at the state level between the share of Google searches in the US for "Happy Holidays" relative to those for "Merry Christmas" over the last year and Hillary Clinton's share of the 2016 US presidential election vote correlates at a vigorous .83. The top five Happy Holidays states: 1) District of Columbia 2)... Read More
Ben Shapiro, smiter of strawmen: Shapiro asserts that race and ethnicity have no bearing on how people vote. He allows that culture does, though, because culture "is about how people think". Neat if true. But people who think the same way, sharing conservative positions on various things, vote in radically different ways--depending on their race... Read More
Though the GSS has asked about the desired legality of abortion since the survey's inception, it explicitly asked about the perceived morality of the practice for the first time in 2018. The following graph shows the two-way distribution--morally opposed or not--of responses across a host of demographic characteristics: "It depends" responses are excluded. This likely... Read More
One oft-ignored aspect on the abortion front of the culture war is how the culturally dominant pro-choice position is driven primarily by white leftists. The sentiments of black and Hispanic Democrats are closer to those of white independents and even white Republicans (29.3% support, combined with independents in the graph below) than they are to...

In response to the observation that self-identified political ideology is relatively unimportant in explaining black electoral behavior, tcjfs pointed to a paper suggesting that most blacks don't know what the labels "liberal" or "conservative" mean in an American political context. As a consequence, the political identity blacks assign themselves is random. They are reliably partisan,... Read More
It's said the culture wars are primarily fought boomer elites on team red and team blue. When the boomers die off, politics will get back to bread and butter issues again. Trump and Sanders, not Cruz and Clinton. One of our most appreciated regular commenters frequently argues as much. I've long been incredulous. Clinton beat... Read More
Like many on our side who are incorrigible noticers, I noticed a lot of the most vile, acerbic attacks on Brett Kavanaugh were coming from blue-checkmarked members of the 2%: Yes, I know Wise is only partially Jewish--that's increasingly the case for all of the non-Orthodox due to high outmarriage rates--but it's not as though...

This religious service--where rigid intellectual, moral, and spiritual conformity is assumed--fronts as a corporate activity led by chief executives of the country's leading tech company, one of the largest publicly-traded firms in the world:
                             
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
One of the humorless, vinegar-drinking scolds dripping with supercilious contempt--the people has done what contemporary comedians spend so much time doing. He has looked at something genuinely funny and proclaimed 'that is NOT okay': normies refer to as "comedians"-- No, Apu was created based on existing stereotypes of South Asians. These stereotypes exist because they... Read More
Indulge me as I reclinate back to the blog's mission statement--validating stereotypes--by way of an enormous Reuters-Ipsos poll (N = 149,591) asking respondents what they perceive to be the most important problem facing the US, from a list of thirteen possible answers. The following graph shows the percentages, by religious affiliation, who identify morality as... Read More
John Derbyshire expresses sentiments I share: The Derb has arrived here after decades of thoughtful reflection. My trip has been much shorter. These sorts of one-off instances overwhelm my knack for teasing out simple but often overlooked patterns. Some observations, none particularly novel: - The AR-15, the gun used in Florida, has been around since... Read More
The following graph shows the percentages of people, by selected demographic characteristics, who agree that some members of the FBI and DOJ are trying to delegitimatize president Trump through politically-motivated investigations (that's putting it mildly to say the least). The data comes from a Reuters Ipsos poll that was conducted the first week of February.... Read More
Steve Sailer on tunnels of oppression: I wasn't alone in noticing a similar pattern in market brands on display at commercial breaks during the Super Bowl: With one exception mentioned below, the anti-white messaging from these giants was devoi
The following is from a someone I went to high school with who holds some sort of outreach position in the state Democrat party. He's second-generation Afghani but, rather remarkably for a youngish POC in an official Democrat capacity, almost never has anything to say about race. It's all Old Left focus on economic and...

- Gab Fam man BooksmartBaller wondered about differences in region (presumably among whites) with regards to how they feel about blacks. In 2002, the GSS asked respondents how "warm" or "cool" they felt towards multiple groups, including blacks. The higher the score, the cooler (ie less trusting of and more hostile towards) a region's whites... Read More
Paul Kersey nailed it: This is predictably being spun as a big loss for Trump. Indeed, Trump could not have played the state any worse than he did--endorsing the loser in the primary, withholding an endorsement and staying mum on the GOPe's not mere abandonment but opposition to Moore until the 11th hour, endorsing Moore...

A few more graphics bequeathed to the historians of the future who will write The History of the Decline and Fall of the American Empire: Those results are for the US. Baby Naming Wizard includes a list of Western countries where Muhammad--peace be upon him--is among the top 100 most popular names for baby boys:... Read More
From a SurveyUSA poll conducted in the San Diego metro area on Trump intervening in China to pull the pampered thieves from UCLA out of the hot water they jumped into, we see an uncharacteristically strong level of support from a demographic group not generally favorable to him. The percentages, by race, who say Trump... 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
Following are excerpts from a letter entitled "A new accountability: We can, and will, be better" sent out to all students and faculty at the University of Kansas. Yes, it was sent out to all students, some of who forwarded it to me. KU's current enrollment is 28,447. For readers whose last contact with academia... Read More
He is seriously misleading at best: Charitably, "often" isn't intended to be synonymous with "tend to", "usually", or any other word or phrase that indicates liberals are more likely to live 'family values' than conservatives do. Instead, Kristof is taken to be merely stating the bland and obvious fact that there are some liberals who... Read More
The apoplectic reaction to the questionable allegations about Roy Moore from nearly four decades ago is something to behold. To the extent they are accurate, they are evidence of a healthy--perhaps too healthy!--male sex drive, the kind of thing normal men fantasize about. This is in stark contrast to the pathological degeneracy of Weinstein and... Read More
Gillespie is a longtime murk dweller who was part of Dubya's presidency and of Romney's failed 2012 candidacy. He's been in the lobbying 'business' for decades. As physiognomy confirms, he's the epitome of cuckservative boomer nationalism. The only reason to pull for him was because, during the gubernatorial campaign, he feigned to care about the...

Joe Biden--who may be quite the degenerate deviant himself--celebrating the enormous influence Jews have had on popular culture (via Vox Day): What is that influenced leveraged in favor of? Okay, we all know, but the blog exists for the purpose of empirically validating stereotypes, so indulge me. The GSS has a couple of questions on... 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...

In this week's installment of the Power Hour, the blog's sole proprietor does a segment touching on church attendance in the West, noting that outside of a couple peripheral Catholic countries like Poland and Ireland, active Christianity is dead in Europe. Moribundity is beckoning in the US, too, though we're a generation or so behind... Read More
The percentages of non-Hispanic white men and women, by level of marital fidelity, who report having experienced poor mental health--defined as "stress, depression, and problems with emotions"--in the month prior to being surveyed. All responses are from 2002 onward (N = 4,677): The gap, at 6.7 points, between men who cheat and those who don't... Read More
In response to GSS data showing a positive correlation between marriage and mental health, commenter Marlborough County writes: That's quite reasonable, and he's correct about the link between social class and marriage and thus also between social class and mental health. To the contrary, mo' money does not appear to lead to mo' problems, at... Read More
The percentages of people, by sex and number of biological children, who report having experienced poor mental health--defined as "stress, depression, and problems with emotions"--in the month prior to being surveyed. To avoid racial confounding, only non-Hispanic whites are considered. All responses are from 2002 onward (N = 6,961): Whatever the cause and effect may... Read More
The percentages of people, by sex and marital status, who report having experienced poor mental health--defined as "stress, depression, and problems with emotions"--in the month prior to being surveyed. To avoid racial confounding, only non-Hispanic whites are considered. All responses are from 2002 onward (N = 6,521): Eat, anxiety meds, pray, anxiety meds, love. GSS... Read More
After she died of a heart attack likely brought on from being spooked by a car driven into nearby pedestrians in Charlottesville, Heather Heyer received a nationally televised funeral. The first three youtube results on "Heather Heyer funeral" are videos from PBS, ABC, and Fox News. Donald Trump praised her (for what, exactly, is anybody's... Read More
Heartiste: Reuters-Ipsos recently initiated a poll asking respondents if they "support the stance Colin Kaepernick is taking and his decision not to stand during the national anthem". Only 1,630 people have been sampled thus far, so these results are relatively preliminary, but it looks like the silver tongue nailed this one. The following graph shows... Read More
Scrolling through Nintendo Wii's old game offerings, I see Super Dodge Ball but not Nintendo World Cup. Both were Technos creations and used the same graphics engines. The costs of putting old titles on offer is negligible--sales must be virtually (heh) all margin. The reason one is for purchase while the other is a no... 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
Pat Buchanan on the perceived impending dissolution of the Republican party: As is always the case with Pat, the column is full of evidence supporting a dissolution, but this excerpt isn't an instance of as much. At least it needn't be. The Cloud People do not understand how overwhelming public opposition to the removal of... Read More
As we wrap up with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation's surveys of high school students in 2016 (a sincere thanks again to Sid for pointing it out), we'll look beyond the strong preference for Trump over Clinton among non-Hispanic whites and look at the enthusiasm gap among those expressing a preference. There's nothing edgy about being... Read More
As it turns out, the Hispanic Heritage Foundation also conducted a massive nationwide poll during the primaries in 2016. Looking at non-Hispanic whites (n = 57,196), Sanders obliterates Clinton among students who support a Democrat,84%-16% in a two-way race. Trump gets three times the support Cruz--who runs a distant second among Republicans--does. Where this gets... Read More
Last November lots of people in my social media network were consoling themselves with an electoral map showing how badly Trump would've been smashed by Clinton if the election had been restricted to millennial voters. Even if the present is out of reach, the future is theirs! The rather tepid response to those unwelcoming of... Read More
I didn't initially comment on the gay play in the park because, while I have nothing but admiration for Laura Loomer jumping on stage and stating the obvious, I've an aversion to the Hitlery Hitlery Hitlery approach that made the world aware of what happened. The DemsRRealRacists approach has been tried for decades, has failed... Read More
James Hodgkinson's facebook page is hastily taken down (though not before a celeritous Cernovich captured and archived several of his posts). Jeremy Christian's page--he's the man who stabbed two people to death in Portland a month ago--is still up. From the New York Times: Hodgkinson shared and quoted Rachel Maddow. Christian shared and quoted Liberty... Read More
++Addition++The interview debate between Alex Jones and Megyn Kelly made me realize I'd forgotten to include the latter. Big oversight on my part, as that clash pitted the two most searched for pundit names in the country against each other. The table has been updated to show the oversight. --- With Vox Day as an...

In a podcast on veganism, two red-pilled herbivores lament the putative association between veganism and leftist politics. Richard Burgess implies this is some sort of new phenomenon*. If Hitler's vegetarianism gave it cachet on the right, that effect had long since worn off by the nineties. I can still vividly recall a time during my... Read More
With street violence now a feature of the landscape anywhere Trump supporters gather for a public event, it's well past time we adopt the mindset that there are no victims, only volunteers. We know the nature of our opposition. To put ourselves in positions to be concussed, maced, or have our ribs broken is to... 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
