When you look in the dictionary under the word “airhead,” you won’t find a photograph of the Guardian writer Zoe Williams. But there should be one. If the right-wing Ann Coulter is the witty, insightful, tough-minded exception to the rule of female punditry, then the left-wing Williams is the vapid, conformist, slush-brained quintessence. On the rare occasions I read anything by Williams, I always find one question hammering urgently in my brain: “Does she get paid for this?”

Zoe Williams, the slush-brained quintessence of female punditry
Zoe Williams, the slush-brained quintessence of female punditry

Well, yes, she does. She gets paid a lot. That’s how she funds her comfortable, bourgeois and very White existence, far from the brown-skinned rape-gangs and black-skinned acid-throwers with whom leftists like her have enriched the lives of working-class Whites. In May 2022 that urgent question hammered again in my brain, because another of those rare occasions arrived and I read something by Williams. She was at her slush-brained best, celebrating the herd-think of the Hive-Mind as she described her attendance at the Bath festival of books:

I’m sure rightwingers read books. But you’ll never meet one at a literary festival

… There is one specific thing I love about book festivals. It’s a convention that you have to spend the first five or even 10 minutes pretending to think the audience are politically neutral. You enter into the charade of thinking these are just regular, respectable people, who may disagree with the government but equally, may agree with it; they may be remainers, they may be leavers; they may be left, they may be right. Just think of them as shareholders, except instead of buying shares, they buy books.

Yet this is the absolute opposite of the truth. You will never meet a group of people more consistent in their views, and not because most of them also go to the same pilates class. Every man jack of them voted remain, and they are considerably more leftwing than those at any meeting of any political party. … The audience absolutely hate being politically misidentified, and they spend those first 10 minutes desperately signalling, with spontaneous clapping and foot-stamping, to indicate that nobody hates the government more than they. …

The atmosphere, it probably goes without saying, is electrifying. (I’m sure rightwingers read books. But you’ll never meet one at a literary festival, The Guardian, 17th May 2022)

Yes indeed, for Guardianistas, it probably does go without saying that it’s “electrifying” to be part of a mass display of leftist narcissism, conformism and virtue-signalling. But in fact, there were two very important and interesting political questions in that article. True to form, Zoe Williams never realized that they were there and never explicitly addressed them. The first question is this: How could the slush-brained Williams be sure that “every man jack” of the attendees was as hummingly hive-minded as she is? She couldn’t, of course. Although Western leftists long to realize Orwell’s dystopian nightmares and directly monitor the brain for crime-think, they can’t actually do that yet. Like the securicrat goons of North Korea, all they can go on is outward behavior.

BLM is a cretinous protection-racket

But Williams didn’t consider any possible mismatch between outward behavior and inward opinion at the literary festival. She never asked herself if there might be crime-thinkers in that “desperately signalling,” “spontaneous[ly] clapping and foot-stamping” crowd. She never saw an uncomfortable parallel with the torrential applause that “spontaneously” greets the speeches of tyrants like Stalin, with every member of the audience fearful to be the first to stop clapping. She’s an airhead and she didn’t wonder why the crowds at leftist lit-festivals “absolutely hate being politically misidentified.”

But just ask yourself what would happen if someone at such a festival admitted to voting for Brexit. Or if someone pointed out, with full facts and figures, that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a cretinous protection-racket that has brought about a massive increase in the murder of Blacks by other Blacks. Obviously, that crime-thinker would be punished with immediate loss of reputation and livelihood. If you hum with the Hive-Mind, all’s well. If you break from the Hive-Mind, you’ll be severely stung. But Zoe Williams finds it “electrifying” to attend a lit-festival where any possible dissidents would be frightened, with very good reason, to express a heterodox opinion.

Suppressing facts, silencing dissent

Now let’s address the second important topic in Williams’ article and suppose that she was entirely right about the conformism of the crowd. “Every man jack” of the attendees was indeed as hummingly hive-minded as she is. But would that be a good thing? Has any ideology ever been entirely right in every way? Have left-wingers absolutely nothing to learn from right-wingers and absolutely nothing to gain from debate and dissent? Zoe Williams and similar airheads apparently think so. As the Hive-Mind hums, so hum they.

But the leftist herd-think of lit-festivals isn’t a good thing, of course. Leftists aren’t infallible or omniscient, but that’s precisely why they are so eager to suppress inconvenient facts and silence dissident voices. The IngSoc — “English Socialism” — of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) had achieved the leftist ideal and was able to control and alter the minutest details of “every kind of literature or documentation which might conceivably hold any political or ideological significance.” As Orwell ironically notes: “Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date.”

Horror and hyperbole

Leftists like Zoe Williams can’t re-write reality like that. Not yet, at least. But they can ignore reality and “electrify” themselves by humming with the Hive-Mind. As I’ve often said before, leftists are not interested in truth, but in power. They don’t want to help the oppressed, but to feed their own narcissism. And here’s another female leftist heaping up a humming helping of narcissism for herself on the Guardian letters-page. First she expresses her horror, then she activates her hyperbole:

Rosie Harvey-Coggins was horrified by one of the Guardian’s dining across the divide conversations

I usually enjoy the debate between the two different viewpoints in your “Dining across the divide” feature, but I was horrified last week (19 May) to see that you had effectively sent a black woman to explain colonial history to a white man.

This should not be done through the unpaid labour of black women. Asking them to do this is to ask them to relive every moment of fear, pain and outrage they have experienced throughout history. Black women face discrimination and systemic racism throughout their daily lives.

I think it would have been a better idea just to send him home with a copy of the book Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge, and let him do the work.

Rosie Harvey-Coggins, Lichfield, Staffordshire (A black woman should not have to explain colonial history to a white man, The Guardian, 27th May 2022)

Dinna widda ’rilla: a Vibrant Black Female suffers all the pain of history from a stale pale male
Dinna widda ’rilla: a Vibrant Black Female suffers all the pain of history from a stale pale male

If you read the episode that so horrified Rosie, you’ll discover that the “divide” was between two leftists: a stale pale male (SPM) called Kieran and a vibrant Black female (VBF) called Marcia. Very bravely, the SPM dared to wonder whether the VBF had an entirely secure grasp of reality when it came to mass immigration. She wanted Blacks like herself to keep flooding into Britain; he wondered whether this would be as wonderful in practice as it was in principle: “The problem is, you can’t just magic up the infrastructure necessary to support 250,000 people a year. It felt a bit like Marcia thought it would just happen.”

In response, the VBF said “the NHS [National Health Service] would never have got off the ground without immigration, and it would collapse tomorrow if all foreign-born workers left.” She’s perfectly right: it would indeed collapse. But only in the sense that an old house would collapse if you removed all the decaying wood and crumbling brick. As Andrew Joyce and others have pointed out at the Occidental Observer, non-White staff in the NHS are much more likely to be incompetent and to commit malpractice and crime. If the NHS were entirely staffed by British Whites, it would be a far better organization. The SPM in the “Dining across the divide” feature didn’t dare to point that out, but his mild dissent still “horrified” Rosie Harvey-Coggins of Lichfield in Staffordshire.

Rosie Harvey-Coggins, Heroine of the Hive-Mind, in her comfortable, bourgeois and very White world
Rosie Harvey-Coggins, Heroine of the Hive-Mind, in her comfortable, bourgeois and very White world

As you might expect from a name like that, Rosie Harvey-Coggins isn’t Black herself. In fact, her details are easy to find online. She’s a blonde White activist in the Labour party. But I’ve concealed her face in the images above because, unlike leftists, I don’t believe that people who express opinions contrary to mine should be harmed or harassed. The Guardian writer Marina Hyde once gloated on the radio about the savage murder of the South African far-right leader Eugene Terre’Blanche. I’m sure that Marina Hyde, Zoe Williams and Rosie Harvey-Coggins would be happy if I too were chopped up with machetes for my racist beliefs.

Insanity + dishonesty = leftism

But I wish them no harm in return for their leftist beliefs. In fact, I’m delighted to hear the opinions of leftists like Zoe and Rosie. After all, I find those opinions highly entertaining in their vapidity and conformism. I also find them psychologically fascinating. Does Rosie, for example, genuinely believe that mild dissent by stale pale males causes vibrant Black females “to relive every moment of fear, pain and outrage they have experienced throughout history”?

If Rosie does believe that, she’s insane. If she doesn’t believe that, she’s dishonest. But insanity and dishonesty aren’t mutually exclusive, of course. Leftism has happily combined the two for centuries. In Rosie’s case, however, I’m happy to accept that the dishonesty outweighs the insanity. She doesn’t genuinely believe her own hyperbole: she’s just virtue-signalling, expressing an opinion that feeds her narcissism and hums with the Hive-Mind.

Whiteness is Theft

If she were insane, on the other hand, she would translate rhetoric into action and give up the comfortable, bourgeois and very White existence she shares with Zoe Williams and countless other leftists. After all, according to Critical Race Theory, all White wealth and achievement are based on theft from Peoples of Color. So Rosie Harvey-Coggins shouldn’t be feeding that little white dog of hers with stolen White money: she should be funding the education of a little Black genius in Somalia or Zimbabwe or Haiti. She shouldn’t be taking expensive holidays in very pale places like Iceland: she should living on the brink of destitution, donating her stolen White money to pro-Black causes like BLM and to VBFs like Reni Eddo-Lodge, the acutely insightful author of Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race (2017).

And why is Reni Eddo-Lodge “no longer talking to white people about race”? It’s simple. She doesn’t talk to them because she has the Truth about Blackness, knows exactly how White racism explains all Black failure, and can no longer tolerate any dissent by Whites. And she’s quite right, according to deluded White leftists like Rosie Harvey-Coggins. That’s why Rosie was “horrified” to see a stale pale male dissenting from the wisdom of a vibrant Black female.

Reality doesn’t interest the Hive-Mind

But was Rosie “horrified” by the rape-gangs of Rotherham? I’m sure she wasn’t. Rosie is a prime example of the bourgeois takeover of the Labour party and its betrayal of the White working-class. People like her have staffed the Labour councils in Rotherham and Rochdale and Manchester and Birmingham and many other British towns and cities, where dark-skinned rape-gangs have flourished for so long. White leftists feed their narcissism by rhetoric about rape, not by accepting the reality that rape is committed much more and in much worse ways by non-Whites. Reality doesn’t interest the Hive-Mind and Rosie Harvey-Coggins, like Zoe Williams, is a heroine of the Hive-Mind.

White woman to the rescue! How leftists like Rosie Harvey-Coggins see the world — the reality of racially mixed schools is entirely different
White woman to the rescue! How leftists like Rosie Harvey-Coggins see the world — the reality of racially mixed schools is entirely different

And yes, I said above that I wish no harm to such heroines of the Hive-Mind. But I need to qualify that. I would like Rosie and Zoe to live for a time in a leftist paradise where Blacks are in charge and Whites are a powerless minority, stripped at last of their undeserved wealth and privilege, unable to visit “fear, pain and outrage” on Blacks and to maintain the “systemic racism” with which they crippled Black lives and suppressed Black genius for so long. How would White women like Rosie and Zoe fare in that Black-ruled leftopia? After all, it’s the world they’re both working hard to create. But I suspect that if they experienced it for real, they would soon be begging for a return to “systemic racism” and “white supremacy.”

  1. Rosie and Zoe are not “left”. The real left has always understood that immigration is a tool of capitalism. They and their ilk are the useful idiots of the Zionist globalists.

  2. @Curmudgeon

    How strange.

    Anytime they wright about the Left here they bring up these wicked people as an example, who would be and should be described as liberal democrats in other parts of the world. But here they somehow represent the Left, and the authors never miss the chance to link it to Marxism, or mention Stalin and how terrible he was and that Socialism is evil.

    But in truth, China is the Left and there is nothing like that. Nor is there anything like that among the Left in Russia. As a matter of fact, the Russian Left is the most conservative political club, as well as the Russian Right. They would probably call them both ultra-nationalist in the West. Laos is the Left – there’s nothing like it.

    Who can explain this to me?

    Some bullshit capitalist propaganda.

    Immigration is a tool of power. Which is why the left embraces it. What better route to total, unanswered power than to swamp the population with your warm bodies?

    The sons of those capitalists who supported immigration in 1902 paid dearly for it in 1932. (Hell, 1928 in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.) This will happen again.

  13. Anymike says:
    @HallParvey

    No, vibrancy means something.

    Vibrancy and violence always go hand in hand. People forget, the “vibrant” lower-middle class and working class white neighborhoods of the 1950s were pretty violent places too.

    Since I bill myself as a social theorist, let me lay out some of the ontology of vibrancy as I perceive it. In the American context, a “vibrant” community is characterized by and as:

    1) A multigenerational community composed of a single ethnic** or religious group, which the young people which to remain in as adults in significant numbers.

    2) Ubiquitous popular music which may however vary by generation.

    3) Hostility to education beyond common (K-12) schooling***, except for people from already gentrified families or who are clearly academically talented.

    4) Suspicion of and sometimes aggressive or violent behavior toward outsiders.

    5) High rates of youth and young adult violence.

    6) Highly stylized social patterns and modes of dress and comportment for both male and female youth and young adults, and hostility toward peers who fail to conform to these modes and patterns.

    7) Strong social pressure to conform to established norms, including political, moral, social, religious and cultural patterns, and established models of vocational and career choice and family formation.

    8) Early age of first pregnancy.

    Remember, this model represents white people of the past, for example, the whites who lived in certain neighborhoods in cities like Chicago and Detroit in the Postwar era. To recognize that it applies to other people as well is not racist. The key takeaway that affects daily life on the street, though, is that “vibrant” individuals are taken by other people to be far closer to the edge of violence than the non-vibrant are. And rightly so. Some “vibrant” men are potentially violent. Others use the ever-present aura of explosiveness as a tool to get their own way.

    Another takeaway and a tenet of my social theory is that what is called white flight was in the Postwar was motivated also by a desire to escape the social pressures and social patterns of the vibrant community. Historically, those whites who wanted to keep their communities often were successful in doing so. The Irish Bridgeport neighborhood in Chicago is a foremost example. But it is not the only one. To keep a community meant having your educational and vocational choices and family formation patterns shaped by the choice of maintaining the community and its culture. If too many did not want to do so, then the community was lost to the group.

    **In the American context, a “vibrant” neighborhood might be home to more than one ethnic group but when this was the case the groups always were united by something overarching – often religion, but also class, a sense of being allied outsider ethnic groups, and a shared embrace of the principles of vibrancy.

    *** Within the lower middle class and working class, there possibly was more acceptance of females pursuing higher education. But the horizons still were lower middle class. Higher education was seen solely as a vocational pathway to a career in teaching, nursing or may social work. Otherwise, higher education was seen as a pursuit which for the male person diluted masculinity. We still see this social pattern and it seems to have spread once again within the white community now. Young men without a clear purpose for being there who are not from gentrified families do not go to college at the former high rates.

  14. bwuce wee says:

    there exist self-evident and time-honored principles, that intelligent people are aware of. one of them is ‘for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction’. in actual practice, sometimes the reaction might be stronger or weaker than the action. so when leftist libtards make a concerted effort to push an unpopular agenda, some of them must be aware that there will be a backlash resulting in defeat, just like many democRATS reailize their own policies will result in loss of power in the next round of elections. so BLM making ‘black life worth less’ and increasing murders of black by blacks? well, someone knew this would happen. so to get started, here we have some typical libtard agendas:
    1 BLM whiners
    2. antifa crybabies
    3. CRT mindfuckers
    4. transgender mania
    5. teaching kids faggotry
    6. encouraging denial of reality- my son identfies as a cat
    7. racism against whites
    8. eliminating gasoline powered vehicles
    9. eliminating parental rights
    10. masks, lockdowns, and ‘vaccine’ mandates
    now each and every one of these intentional programs will have an enormous backlash, initiating powerful opposite reactions that ignite and unite counter-movements. so no matter how popular these brainwash events become, they will be matched and perhaps overcome by counter waves of indignation that polarize opposing movements. in other words, the liberal movement itself may cause it’s own ultimate defeat. now some of the libtards must have known this fact before they instigated their hideously unpopular tenets, yet they did it anyway?!?!?! did they merely want to create anarchy, chaos and divisivenesss? because ultimately these movements will fail and this biden era WILL go down in history as the greatest moment of collective insanity this country has ever known. WOKEISM will overshadow any previous mass insanity event in american history. nor will they be able to erase their mistakes from history in the near future, because too many young people will remember it for the rest of their miserable lives.

  26. (…) the brown-skinned rape gangs

    let’s not forget they’re Muslims, and that “Christian girls are considered goods to be damaged at leisure. Abusing them is a right. According to the [Muslim] community’s mentality it is not even a crime. Muslims regard them as spoils of war”, http://raymondibrahim.com/2014/09/03/muslims-sexually-enslaving-children-a-global-phenomenon/ – – – “a right”, of course, see qur’ân 33:52 for instance; and “spoils of war”, of course, the perps living in the “dar-al-harb (house of war)” where it is their duty (2:191-193) to maim the infidels by all means.

    Those rapists acting by religious conviction, there is no way to counter them in countries where religious liberty is law.

    No way, really?

    To begin with, “Islam” (quotation marks) is NOT a religion, quote: “Deshalb sind alle Übersetzungen des Koran von vornherein falsch, in denen der Begriff ‘Religion’ verwendet wird // Hence all translations of the qur’ân are false from the beginning, in which the concept of ‘religion’ is made use of”, in: Vom Koran zum Islam, Hans Schiler Verlag, Berlin 2009, p.35 .

    Then and more importantly still, the so–called “founder” of the so-called “islam” is by no means a non-existing “nabi” or “rasul” Mohammed, but rather the caliph al-Ma’mûn. Hereafter some excerpts from Die Entstehung einer Weltreligion IV, Hans Schiler Verlag, Berlin 2017:

    “[…] The Facts:
    — The 135 verses that directly contradict the theory of an uncreated Koran were written by one or several authors different from those who wrote the rest of the Koran.
    — Despite these 135 verses, any Muslim who argues against the theory of the uncreated Koran is considered apostate, and hence, deserves death.
    — These 135 verses could only have been written between 833 and 847.

    The Hypothesis:
    These 135 verses were written between 833 and 847, at a time when belief in the theory of the uncreated Koran was forbidden, in order to show that this theory was wrong. At the end of the ninth century, when belief in the theory became compulsory again, the verses were not removed, because, at that time, there were so many Korans in circulation, it was impossible to destroy all of them and distribute a new version that did not contradict this theory.

    The Conclusion:
    The Koran was written over a period of time spanning slightly more than two centuries.
    Is it possible to find a hypothesis that supports the three facts above and the notion that the Koran was written over a period of just 22 years?

    […] The Facts:
    — The name of Muhammad was introduced in the Koran by a single author, distinct from the other authors who contributed to the Koran.
    — Muhammad was mentioned for the first time 60 years after his (supposed, RF) death, but only one artifact before the ninth century (= the inscription in the Dome of the Rock, analyzed by Luxenberg, cf pp 124 sq in “Die dunklen Anfänge”, RF) states that he was a prophet, although not superior to all others but rather on a par with Jesus. He is usually described as the founding prophet of Islam, superior to all others, no earlier than 200 years after his (supposed, RF) death.

    The Hypothesis:
    Muhammad was enthroned as the founding prophet of Islam at least 60 years after his (supposed, RF) death and probably much later. He was deemed superior to all prophets, possibly 200 years after his (supposed, RF) death. His name was put in the Koran by a later author, an interpolator.

    The Conclusion:
    Muhammad was inthroned as the prophet of Islam at least 60 years after his (supposed, RF) death and possibly much later.”

    Her Guardian strapline photo reminds me of a hen with indigestion.

    My favourite Zoe Williams article.

    “Of the 99 under-16s killed in the UK between 2002 and 2003, more than half were killed by a parent and maternal killings accounted for only 5% of that total. The spectre of fathers killing their children is not one that is conjured up to spook people, then, nor is it blown out of proportion because each individual narrative is so wrenching, arresting and memorable; it is not exaggerated by vengeful single-mother feminists as a critique on the authenticity of fatherly feelings. It is a phenomenon that happens – often.”

    The following correction was printed in the Guardian’s Corrections and clarifications column, Monday November 13 2006

    In the article below we said that more than half of under-16-year-olds killed in the UK between 2002 and 2003 were killed by a parent and maternal killings accounted for only 5% of that total. In fact, Home Office figures for England and Wales show that killings of children by a natural parent are committed in roughly equal proportions by mothers (47%) and fathers (53%).

    The real left has always understood that immigration is a tool of capitalism.

    Marx and Engels knew that immigration was a tool of capitalism, and they despised the Irish immigrants who became part of England’s lumpenproletariat in the 1840s. Their writing on the subject would be enough to get most historical figures cancelled.

    The modern “left” has abandoned economic Marxism and a concern for the working class. Perhaps they can be described as “cultural Marxists”; perhaps not. In the UK their principal motivation is simply to outrage readers of the Daily Mail, the country’s most purchased newspaper. Why is a good question: perhaps it is just Daddy Issues.

    Andrew Neather, a former aide of Tony Blair, wrote that the purpose of mass immigration during the Blair administration (1997-2007) was to “rub the right’s nose in diversity”. Notice that there was no assessment of whether mass immigration would be good for the country: the purpose was simply to outrage the Labour Party’s perceived deplorables.

    How does The Guardian manage to employ so many opinion writers of little merit, when its circulation is barely 12% of the Daily Mail‘s? Simple: they have a trust fund worth £1 billion (\$1.2 billion), from the fortune amassed in the 19th and early 20th Centuries by the owners of its forerunner, the Manchester Guardian.

    By virtue of their employment, every single Guardian writer is a Trust Fund Babe.

    And the quality of their writing is what you would expect from Trust Fund Babes. Imagine Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, but with a degree in Grievance Studies, and you will not be far away from the truth.

    What a waste of £1 billion.

    yes, that is certainly a main chapter in their playbook. however, they cannot even imagine attempting to run that play when the midterm elections are coming up. that would be suicide. and then after the elections, they will have lost power. then there are states rights, meaning some states will never allow gun confiscation. So really, that is a pipe dream like flying to another star sytem- there exists no mechanism by which to enact either gun confiscation, or flight to the stars. but obama, who is actually running this shit-show, can dream. he is all about the dream…. and illusion. he imagines his ‘boyfriend in a dress’ is a ‘woman’, and pooof(!), he is a ‘she’. it is not magic, though, it is mere illusion.

That would make Biden a war time president and precedent indicates presidents and associated scum don’t get replaced during a war.

    Our self-described Paleolithic rightists entirely miss the point, that these pseudo-leftists serve as distractions, what Lenin himself advocated as a needful “controlled opposition.” Narrative control is the name of the game in our postmodern world of corporate fake news media, plus effective privatized state censorship and surveillance networks. Foolishnesses such as identity politics and the vain struggle for “equity” are what you get when it is forbidden to talk about real things like working class solidarity and the cruelty inherent in capitalism and its ugliest manifestation, imperialism. Academia, once the incubator of revolution, is controlled by corporate foundations whose grant money is available by the bucket load to compliant house servants, to those who look down their pointy noses at the deplorables or fancy themselves better than their lowly fellows still chopping cotton out in massa’s fields.

    I wouldn’t call China leftist – it is rather National Socialism reborn, this time in the most powerful nation on earth rather than in a small central European country ringed by mightier enemies and demonized out of all recognition in their propaganda apparatus. Notice that rather than threatening world peace with hundreds of military bases, China is building a global commonwealth based on mutual respect and shared benefit. This is essentially Marxism purged of its founder’s foolish mismeasures of human nature. If humanity has a future, it is being born now even as western capitalism is in its death throes. All the Right can offer is the same old stale “solutions” that have brought us to the brink of catastrophe in the first place.

    i cannot rule out an attempt to cancel the elections, however they will not ever be able to stuff ballot boxes or flip machine totals again- too much scrutiny. as to war with russia, with what weapons? they left a lot of weapons in afghanistan, and they sent a lot of weapons to ukraine, and biden just promisied them another billion worth of weapons today, and then they promise support for taiwan?!?!?! never happen. so in reality, the USA government is on track to disarming itself. so when the military has no weapons left, they cannot fight russia, not can they instigate martial law at home. so really, the only option left for obama/biden is nuclear war. those are the only wesapons they have in stock. it will take years to replace the missiles they gave away to ukraine. years and years of stockpiling down the drain. you cannot run a war without your stockpile. nor can you effectively steal another stockpile if you are weaponless. so another example of the inability to think things through. typical example: obama’s big contribution to big government- obamacare- is now imploding and will soon be on life support, and any money which could be used to fix that broken system has already been spent. we are witnessing a gambler whose luck ran out, and now he cannot pay to play to get any winnings back, nor can he pay his backers or creditors. so it is already game over, only no one in DC has realized it yet. that is called denial…

    There have been no consequences for the election theft in 2020. Even the movie that detailed how it was done has prompted no outcry because the majority never saw the movie due to media suppression. From the Dems perspective, they got away with it and with the movie detailing what they need to fix, they are in a perfect position to do it again, but this time with tighter controls to leave little to no evidence, but even with evidence, there’s no down side.

    I thought about the US running out of weapons, but I think the deep state has their stockpile and aren’t running that down for anyone. Those 800 foreign military bases are storage locations. But even if there are too few conventional weapons, there are plenty of nukes. That’s why any confrontation with Russia would go nuclear in a hurry if there’s no viable alternative. I’d like to believe your suggestion that the US is disarming itself, but I just don’t think that’s the case.

    What’s needed for martial law? An announcement that it has been enacted and grunts on the street with small arms and plenty of ammo. The military has been spreading their excess military equipment to police departments all over the country for decades, so there are military vehicles already positioned to make civilian weapons ineffective in large measure. For a time, the grunts will take orders and shoot the citizenry, but that won’t last. UN troops could be called in to point their weapons at US troops so they continue to follow orders. Lots of possibilities.

    For me, it’s the Dollar rapidly becoming worth less and less in terms of purchasing power that will terminate the Fed Gov. All those no longer needed Dollars in foreign central banks will flood the US to raise price inflation to where the Fed can’t control anything. I agree that the US Fed Gov is mortally wounded but just hasn’t hit the floor yet.

    Way back in 2004, Bush was elected via poling machine hacking using a “man in the middle” attack, largely proven by a university, I think in Ohio. The guy that was the top tech guru for the project was subsequently killed when his private plane crashed. I keyed in “bush hacking election killed plane” into a search engine and got lots of hits for the story. I was a “white hat hacker” for years so got the details from tech sites that dissected the technique used. I believe it involved servers in Italy.

    Instead of the last method used for cheating, they may go back to a method that worked in the past. As long as there are election machines, essentially PC’s, they can be hacked. The media is completely controlled, so any stories about election irregularities is simply suppressed.

    We still see this social pattern and it seems to have spread once again within the white community now. Young men without a clear purpose for being there who are not from gentrified families do not go to college at the former high rates.

    The starting salary for a college grad in 2022 is \$55,000/year. The average student loan debt after 4 years is \$30,000. The average cost of a four year degree is over \$100,000.

    A high school graduate can start entry level as a carpenter, electrcian, plumber, welder and make \$40,000+/year and be well above the starting college grad salary in four years.

    College grad: four years lost earnings, spent \$100,000 on college. Net result after 4 yrs -\$100,000.
    High school grad learning a trade. Net result after 4 yrs +\$200,000.

    The high school graduate working at a trade is \$300,000 ahead of his peers who attended college after four years. Most of his college grad peers will never catch up in lifetime earnings, unless they have a STEM degree and if (a big if) they get a job utilizing the STEM training.

    Your reply and that of Curmudgeon raise an interesting point – as does Tobias Langdon. There does not seem to be a genuine left – or right – in the western political landscape any more. The split over Russia’s response to the escalation of the Globo-pedo shopping mall’s escalation in its Ukraine colony has revealed this more than anything in recent times.

    Rosie and Zoe are not “left”. The real left has always understood that immigration is a tool of capitalism. They and their ilk are the useful idiots of the Zionist globalists.

    Yes I get it, but most people in the west talking in a private space out of the earshot of nascent totalitarians – or ‘Nazi’s if you prefer – would describe the two airheads as ‘leftist’. Vox Day’s label for them would be SJWs (Social Justice Warriors). Orwell pegged them very accurately as well. So did Solzhenitsyn in the quote Langdon linked in the article – though that might more accurately be described as the face of totalitarianism in service to a cult of personality. North Korea under Rocket-Man and his family is the closest contemporary parallel. The so-called “right” is filled with such folks as well, like Mr. End of History’s recent hymn of praise to the great beast. Fukuyama would be described as a ‘right-wing nazi’ by the airheads referred to in the article, yet they’re on the very same side when it comes to self-determination.

    Despite it’s widespread use by Russia, the term ‘Nazi’ does not resonate in the west very well. The Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP, e.g. National Socialist German Workers’ Party) is typically characterized as “Right Wing” but its name is clearly of the traditional left, as were many of its policies. It suffered from a ‘cult of personality’ built up around an Austrian painter as well, and the totalitarian element was there in abundance. The actual right-wingers (monarchists) were off the chessboard by the time of the beer-hall putsch in the old capital of the Kingdom of Bavaria.

    One interesting observation which few have made is the shift of political position on the part of large financial interests. A century ago, most would have thought of them as “right-wing” but at the end of the day they were the ones who provided the funds to fund the war and subsequent revolutions which toppled the long-standing monarchies in Russia, Germany and Austria – leaving only the toothless British monarchy who served their interests more than the most obsequious ‘house-negro’ of a Southern Sugar plantation owned by David Levy Yulee.

    The real conflict at present would appear to be between those who believe in liberty and a preservationist nationalism versus those who support the Globo-pedo shopping mall, unrestrained looting, asset strip-mining and totalitarianism. The two airheads described by Langdon no doubt loudly support the ‘tricky-dickey of the piano’ puppet in Kiev for upholding “liberal democracy” (despite having outlawed all opposition parties), even if they could not point to the Ukraine on a map. Maybe it’s time we stopped using the “right vs. left” terminology taken from the late 18th-century Estates general of the waning days of the French monarchy.

    One the many things that annoy me is the Orwellian redefinition of words. Here in the United States for instance we haven’t had free capitalism for over a century. Our economy is centrally managed by the central bank’s printing press, government regulation, manipulation of tax code, and redistribution of wealth to subsidize behaviors that are desired by the ruling class. What we have is a strange blend of socialism and fascism that is directly responsible for our collapse. You and your ilk blame capitalism because the propagandists here say we are a capitalist country when nothing could be further from the truth. In the leftist utopia no one would want for anything and everyone would be equal. In reality we are not equal in ability, intellect, or ambition. If the US was a bicycle made for 330 million, 20% are pedaling their asses off, 60% are hauling their weight, and 20% are riding the brakes. Since we aren’t ants or honey bees when leftists take over and steal the proceeds generated by the labor of the hard workers in the 20%, the 20% stops pedaling too. There is no longer any reason to work hard because there is no reward. It takes a while but eventually the system collapses as it has in any country where it has been tried. You may not think you are like Zoe or Rosie. You can try to nit pick about minor policy differences but there is one common denominator that leftists share. You are all delusional.

    1. there have in fact been consequences to vote fraud, you just don’t read it in the news. several recounts have changed results in recent elections in the south. that means they overturned the machine flipping tally. this will snowball.
    2. your martial law scenario sounds exactly like people here describing how ukraine will win. ukraine will not win, nor will martial law succeed, even if it is declared.
    3. 2 ways martial law can be orchestrated: we are invaded, and pandemic. pandemic was recently performed, so unlikely it will succeed after the hideous results of the first one. they ‘shot their wad’ there. invasion would be blamed on biden because of his open borders. right now we have had terrorist attacks on over 90 food proccessing plants, as well as bird flu(bioweapon) and recent cattle deaths with no known cause. those terrorists came across open borders to destroy the food supply, so the enemy was let through the gates by biden. also, we have more armed citizens than any other country in the world, and they did not just buy all those guns to give them up without a fight. then we have the catch and release programs: how many gun owners arrested before every jail is too full? that would overwhelm the system. right now, you could not get one cop in america to enter a ghetto to confiscate weapons. not one. heckfire- you had 50 or more cops in uvalde and not one of them would go in and confiscate the rifle from the pencil-neck incel. and if they were to start a national gun confiscation program, they would need to disarm the criminals first. if they did not disarm the criminals first, the criminals would immediately began a campaign of rioting and looting the likes of which only south afrika has seen in recent times. so the gun consfiscation cannot succeed, as i pointed out, because it is not well thought out, like obamacare was not well thought out. obamacare is NOW going to be a giant tax. justice roberts abstained from the vote on obamacare- his reason? he said ‘it was a tax and all tax bills must originate in the senate’. so obamacare, from the gitgo, was illegal, it is a tax, and that trigger is about to be pulled.

    I am pushing back against the idea that what we call “vibrancy” is that much of a positive. In my take on the idea, vibrancy in the community and therefore in the individual is very closely associated with interpersonal violence and the threat thereof. I also am arguing that it is a hinderance to a community even though in calling the traits that constitute it “vibrancy” it made to sound like a constructive condition.

    The liberals who promote the wonders of the “vibrant” immigrant community are using their promotion of it as front for justification of social and political violence. Truth told, the conservative who extol the glories of the “vibrant” white communities are doing the same. Much of the violence though was and is internecine and resolves down to the phenomenon of self-destructive behavior among male youth and young adults. True then. True now. Even if the form of it is different in different communities.

    When I saw this,

    If the US was a bicycle made for 330 million,

    ..in line with what you said prior, I conjured another analogy to the one you offered. My mind pictured a standard issue bicycle that was to be the same for everyone. So, approx 25% of the people would be too tall or heavy for it, 50-55% would do okay with it and 20-25% would be too small to even reach the pedals. There’s “equality” (of bicycles) for you! It doesn’t even function.

    ..the proceeds generated by the labor of the hard workers in the 20%, the 20% stops pedaling too. There is no longer any reason to work hard because there is no reward.

    100% accurate. I spent a few days each in Russia and the former Czechoslovakia in 1990 and what I saw was all I would EVER need to see to verify exactly what you stated. Further, there are people who do well in those places…as criminals and black marketeers. So, the way you do get rewarded in socialist/communist countries is either selling-out to the political class or by committing crime, basically.

    Unfortunately China is part of the globalist plan, as proved by its endorsing of the scamdemic. It is a game of illusions.

    Here is a quote from JazzHand McFeels, who bought into the whole Russia is part of the NWO conspiracy theory:

    https://dissident-mag.com/2022/06/08/why-i-changed-my-mind-about-russia/

    So, McFeels pulled his head out of his rectum, and there was a Sonic boom that nobody heard. (That would be air inrushing into the giant vacuum hole.)

    Western Jewish financial interests thought they were succeeding at simultaneously subverting and gaining leverage with the Russian people by exerting the forces of American consumerism and cargo-cultism on the Russian economy in the hopes of one day orchestrating a successful coup against Putin or his successor.

    Until they weren’t anymore.

    Anybody that is even slightly aware of economics, knows that the money comes before ideology, and that our (((friends))) operate in the hidden string pulling finance sphere.

    China has full control over their money. They are not part of Globo Homo.

    The Atlantacists also come out into the open and state their intentions, using rags like the Atlantic Monthly, and the Economist.

    It was always astonishing to me that intelligent people like Jazz Hands so often gets things wrong, but it is because he is shadow boxing ideology and is not an economic historian.

    The same goes for you. At some point in the future, you will have to throw in the towel, and admit to yourself you have been wrong for a long time.

    China puts their own self interest first. They are industrial capitalist, they have a state bank, and they are transitioning to state socialism, or national socialism if you prefer.

    This is so obvious it shouldn’t even need to be stated, but then there are the bitter clingers who don’t want to see what is right before their nose.

    Everything is not a conspiracy where the Jew and finance capital always gets its way. The Jew and Finance Capitalism is LOSING in China, and in Russia. Don’t be a Jazzhand.

    Take a step back on the scamdemic. When done, China will have infrastructure in place to deal with real pandemics. A national socialist country takes care of its people, and can deal with external threats. The external threat is less now that Russia has captured the illegal bio labs in Ukraine.

    China is also a patriarchy, and no crazy white leftist woman would be listened to. They would politely ignore her.

    In general, the voting machines were supposed to report to a centralized server for final tabulation. The traffic was rerouted to Italy, as I recall, where the data was manipulated as needed to convert Gore votes to Bush votes and then the traffic was forwarded to the totaling servers. That’s a “man in the middle attack” at a layman’s level.

    The scheme was only set up to process a certain section of the US where the GOP knew they had a problem. By setting up routing appropriately, the voting machines were tricked to send traffic to what they thought was the totaling server. From those machines perspective, they were working as expected. From anyone overseeing the voting machines, everything looked normal. Anyone inspecting the voting software and operating system per machine would notice nothing out of the ordinary unless they dug into the IP packet traffic and routes the machine understood and that takes someone with a bit more knowledge than some clerk overseeing the operation.

    Hijacking the traffic is a behind the scenes way of manipulating the data that is difficult to notice. One has to be listening to the traffic with appropriate software to see what was going on in real time and there was no one listening, apparently. How a university was able to get an after the fact log of traffic and put the pieces together is unknown to me.

    The machines themselves are hackable as was demonstrated during a hackers convention. The operating system appears to be purposely left unprotected and the machines had functioning USB and other ports where anyone with rudimentary knowledge could have swapped files. Voting machines could be made near bullet proof from hacking but no one in the political system wants that. These machines are intended to fool voters and take advantage of their technological ignorance while the political class can point at “computers” to guarantee that no one is messing with paper ballots, etc. It’s a great scam.

    One short aside.

    I custom built a firewall and installed it at a major US defense contractor’s employee fitness center inside their manufacturing facility. As soon as I turned it live, it started rejecting traffic left and right, so I thought I messed up somewhere and shut it down to inspect its logs. Turned out that the traffic was inbound from a Moscow IP address. I informed management about what I found, expecting them to have me eavesdrop on traffic to trace the packets throughout their enormous facility to see what the hack had access to. To my surprise, management said not to mention anything to anyone but just snap the firewall in place and turn it on to prevent further intrusion. That hack was potentially active for years before I cut it off.

    While I agree with most of what you say pertaining to “vibrancy” and the causes of violence in “vibrant” communities, and while I am by no means trying to extol the virtue of the conservative “white” version, I still see a big qualitative difference with the liberal “multiracial” version: one is about the continuance of an order, that isn’t necessarily moral in the Christian sense but that has been established by natural means, as you observe not only among white people but in other communities as well, while the other is about creating a new artificial order by first causing chaos to destroy all remnants of the old, which is necessarily immoral in every sense. One has rooting as purpose, the other has uprooting as purpose.

    NSDAP is typically characterized as “Right Wing” but its name is clearly of the traditional left, as were many of its policies.

    Of course, National Socialist is still Socialist. As a matter of fact it doesn’t even matter whether it’s National or not.

    The Russian version was inter-national. That doesn’t change anything. Not regarding the Socialist policies at least.

    Stalin had such a great respect for Hitler, that he couldn’t believe it when the intelligence was delivered, that Hitler was going to attack.

    He thought that respect was mutual.

    Maybe it’s time we stopped using the “right vs. left” terminology taken from the late 18th-century Estates general of the waning days of the French monarchy.

    There were certain positives associated with the “vibrant” white ethnic community of the past that are less prevalent if not missing entirely in today’s “vibrant” minority communities. The white model of the Postwar era had a high rate of family formation and low rates of dependency. That “early age of first pregnancy” thing either followed from marriage at an early age or was followed shortly by marriage. A guy who got his girlfriend pregnant soon acquired a new title or two. First, husband. Then, dad. Males were encouraged to get a job which could then turn into a career with a lifetime living wage.

    Life was not perfect in that era. Television shows like Ozzie and Harriet, Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver were not intended to represent what was like. They were intended to provide people with a guide to how to solve family problems through normative discourse rather than through histrionics and even violence. There was in fact a lot of domestic violence and child abuse in white families in that era. Many of the men were combat veterans and suffered from PTSD.

    It was not “Happy Days” whatsoever and self-destructive behavior among the youth was quite prevalent. I was there. A kid. But there.

    The next time any of you walk or ‘crawl’ into a secret voting booth, behind dark curtains, alone and without being driven by force, consider that you are just voluntarily choosing a master selected for you, and in that process, you have become a slave to the state.

    [MORE]

    Government is criminal. Police and military are criminal enforcers of government. Modern central banking and money production are criminal. Surveillance is criminal. Censorship is criminal. The entire state apparatus is criminal, and should be permanently crippled. All government, and therefore all political states, always and only act with violent force. The essence of government is that it grows like a cancer, infecting everything it touches; it expands its powerful bureaucracies exponentially, and therefore is pure evil. There is no such thing as good government.

    If any take offence to this position, if any side with those politicians they mistakenly refer to as ‘leaders,’ if any support the state in its efforts to steal, control, and murder, if any give their allegiance to politicians or the nation state, if any worship the state as God; then you will always be the problem, and never the solution. Freedom is the natural state of intelligent men, but freedom cannot, and never has existed when government is present. By ignoring government en masse, by never obeying orders handed down by the state, by never complying with any draconian measures demanded by government, by never allowing the theft of your property and earnings by the state; then and only then can you claim to be free.

    Those who choose to rule over others, those who claim illegitimate power over society whether elected or not, those who believe they are more capable of dictating how others must live their lives instead of learning how to live their own, those who believe in taking from some by force in order to redistribute their property to others at their whim, and those who claim that they are ‘serving’ the public; they are the ones who should be ignored, shunned, ridiculed, and if necessary, tarred and feathered, and run out of town. They deserve nothing less.

    Do not cast stones, simply lend a helping hand. Do not condemn others due to any belief that you are exceptional, better than others, or somehow more righteous than your fellow man. While this may seem to be true in certain circumstances, it is a mistake generally speaking to pass moral judgement on others when none have at this point reached perfection. The idea is to get along, with or without acceptance of the behavior of others, unless of course, aggression and harm are present. Division of the masses will always be sought by those seeking power, and every time we as a society fight or hate amongst ourselves, the state wins, and the rest of us lose. In this current hell on earth that has been created due to unwarranted fear, apathy, total indifference, and contempt for all those who disagree with one another, what is left is an all-powerful state working as one, and a gargantuan underclass at each other’s throats. Can you not see that this was the state’s plan all along?

    The elimination of all government power, the privatizing of all money, the destruction of central banking, and self-responsibility, are necessary if we are to survive this ‘great reset’ plot conjured up by the few ‘elites’ who consider themselves to be better, more privileged, and superior to all others. This has nothing to do with equality, as equality does not, and should not exist. This does not have to be looked at as a detriment; it is simply the way of life. There will always be those who have more ability than others, those who will be more successful, those who are more talented, and those who have tremendous intelligence, but they can be of great importance as we all can benefit from the excellence of others, without feeling any jealously or resentment. Most all have something to offer, and so long as individuals in society concentrate on survival, working together, cooperating voluntarily to sustain a joyful life, and protecting our freedom, the strife caused by fear, hatred, and antagonistic rivalry, will subside in favor of harmony among men. Live your own life and leave others to live theirs. It is a better way.

    Our enemy is not each other; our enemy is the state. It should then, stand to reason that the elimination of all state power will result in more peace, understanding, and tranquility among humanity. I am not speaking of Utopia, as the elimination of state power can only benefit all, and allow for a much better existence without all the division that has been purposely created and stoked by those who claim to be the ruling masters over us. The tearing down of governments and government power can only lead to a more compassionate, honest and less violent society.

    Money doesn’t come before ideology, it comes before society. Society isn’t ideology, it’s a filter that hides some ideologies and presents others.

    Blood is prior to ritual, whether acknowledged or not. Who people are determines to a large degree what they do.

    Ritual precedes ideology. AKA Habit/tradition/religion comes before conceptualizations of the world or its elements.

    Ideology prefigures economy. We see this in that we do not use material that is of intrinsic value as “currency”. We use symbols which we treat as valuable due to ideology/education. The money’s value is in nothing other than the trained-perception of the people.

    Economy precludes sociology in the original sense. Stimulus of perceived-efficiency drives which professions/guilds/associations are perceived as successful and hence which public spaces the people contained are able to inhabit/frequent.

    Society rewards or punishes certain varieties of interpersonal communication.

    There was no good side in WWII, apart from the early French resistants who weren’t communists but were actual monarchists, an the Yugoslav army in the fatherland, led by Draža Mihailović.

    I do not know where you are. Serbia? At any rate, I thank you for the courtesy of reply in my own language.

    When trying simultaneously to follow separate, parallel tracks, such discussions as this one regrettably tend to derail. On the one track, you have American commenters in the American native language writing for an American audience in an American context at The Unz Review, an American web site that avails itself of the First Amendment to the American Constitution. On the other track, you have various foreigners, including yourself, that like to take part in the conversation from time to time. My earlier comment was, of course, meant for American consumption. It made no attempt to fit an international set of definitions or a foreign understanding of facts.

    One curious fact several of us Americans seem to be learning as a result of the Ukrainian war is that, to a Russian, “Nazi” may be a rough synonym for “anti-Russian.” The word has never meant that to an American, though (which is why so many Americans are confused and disoriented by the Azov Battalion’s S.S. regalia), nor can Americans be obliged to adopt foreign definitions of “Nazi” in domestic discussions.

    I am glad that you have joined the discussion but anyway, yes, the Nazis were the good guys.

    Nazi is a Jewish slur, Germans never called themselves that.

    I had not known this.

    And they did commit atrocities that weren’t called for….

    Undoubtedly so. There was, after all, a war going on during World War II! Reinhard Heydrich was a hard man, and he was not the only such. Still, in terms of murder of noncombatants, deceit beyond the respectable exigencies of war, disregard of established European norms of war, and wanton destruction of priceless architecture in which no military or naval assets were housed, the Allies were objectively worse. It could be argued that the Allies were also the more treacherous (for example in the case of Churchill’s aborted invasion of then-neutral Norway during early 1940) if the premise is accepted that the Soviet Union did not merit faith. It can hardly be disputed (though the tendentious and the ill informed will affect to dispute it, anyway) that, in terms of general hypocrisy on the part of the governing classes, the Allies were far the worse.

    Hardly anything has grown clearer during the passing decades than that we Americans would be better off today if the outnumbered Germans had won World War II. Please take no offense if I say that the interests of Serbs and others in the matter are not to us a point of primary concern.

    … small tribes that operated on credit.

    What is a small tribe the operates on credit, please?

    I am having difficulty imagining tribesmen on, say, the African savanna or the American Great Plains presenting their credit cards when game is scarce; so one suspects that I have mistaken your meaning.

    (This being The Unz Review, I am aware that almost any oblique reference might be a reference to Jews, but did not want to assume.)

    In a word, they go there to socialize with their simpaticos and reinforce their world view. Same reason we listen to conservative talk radio and read alt-right websites.

    I don’t listen to conservative talk radio. Too insular and ideological.

    Alt-right at least allows debate.

    The difference is, we don’t deny that we are doing what we are or that we simply want to associate with a compatible community. In a word, we’re willing to let Portland be Portland and Boise be Boise. They seem to have a problem with that.

    Yes they have a major problem with dissenting views, even if they control mainstream culture.

    They don’t have faith in their own ideology. Even when it dominates they feel a desire to stomp out any opposition.

    What is a small tribe the operates on credit, please?

    Credit pre-dates money. For money to exist, a civilization has to advance with law, and that first occurred in the temple cults, when humans started farming, especially for barley (to get drunk).

    If you are in a small tribe, and you are about to go fishing, a local girl named Jolene, might give you a BJ in advance. You are now in debt to Jolene for the fish. Jolene extended to you BJ credit.

    Credit and Debts exist outside of money.

    In a money economy, say you cannot pay your house nut, you can be foreclosed on. The HOUSE transfers as an asset, to then cancel the debt (debt instrument). Money did not transfer.

    That money has become debt instead of a division of equity, only happened later in history, most especially with the advent of the Bank of England, the first major debt spreading bank.

    If a private person, say Jolene gives you BJ’s over the course of months, then she cannot remember all of her credit to you. She might make notches on a stick, to then talley up her credit to you.

    Private talley sticks are evidences of debt, and not money.

    When King Edward issued his talley sticks, they were money because they were good for taxes, and payable to the King, and were codified in law.

    Small tribes of 200 persons or less, just remember credit and debts to each other. They know who owes who what.

    You’re right, the more I understand what’s going on, the more it honestly feels like “professional wrestling”. Both sides go back behind the curtain after the match and laugh about getting a good “pop” from the crowd. The only difference is the wrestlers try to keep the fans safe, whereas the politicians launch grenades into the stands and take bets on who has the higher body count.

    I have observed, the hippie counterculture was the only element in the leftist coalition that ever seemed to be willing to limit itself to it own community. Not much left of the hippie subculture, but its arty influence is everywhere. Not all of its members were leftists. Some were conservatives. But the dominant tone and the voting pattern was leftist and Democratic. Everybody else in the leftist coalition wants to burn their opposition’s communities to the ground and take the children too. Long have.

    The hippie diaspora, as I term it, was a real demographic event. It was, for one thing, the last Anglo in- migration that left a permanent demographic imprint on California society. The descendants of the original migrants still live in numbers in Coastal California from Santa Cruz County north. The counties that are highly affected include Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Alameda, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Humboldt. The North Coast congressional district might still be Republican without the surviving original hippies and the hippie descendants.

    Back to the point. The leftists definitely want hegemony over traditional communities. I read their press for years when I lived in the Bay Area. They regularly published articles featuring alliances between leftist and traditional elements, for example, alliances between environmentalists and ranchers. If they had all power, woe to those who did not join the required alliances. That includes, by now, submitting to leftist control over local public education especially. But nothing new here. They’ve been at it since the 19th Century.

    Jewish-OK by me. Lesbian-no worries. Drag queens in pubs or clubs, for adults- suits me. A transvestite show-off in every school-pure insanity. This is a psychic disease of astonishing virulence.

    Like a scene from Mondo Cane, but instead of simply watching a primitive, savage African ritual on a movie screen, this woman is a part of it, subjecting the boy to it in person.

    “the NHS [National Health Service] would never have got off the ground without immigration, and it would collapse tomorrow if all foreign-born workers left.”

    The NHS was up and running in 1948. The first NHS hospital, Park Hospital, was opened in Manchester on 5th July 1948 – two weeks after the SS Empire Windrush first docked in Tilbury with 492 Caribbean immigrants. It seems doubtful that these chaps would have been able to set up a fully functioning public health service in little over a week…

    Of course later in the 1950s, Enoch Powell brought nurses from the Caribbean such that by 1965 there were 3,000-5,000 Jamaican nurses working in British hospitals, many of them concentrated in London and the Midlands. By 1977, 29 years after the NHS’s founding, they accounted for 12% of the *student* nurse intake – many of them expected to return home with their skills.

    as curmudgeon said, these people are not Left. They have nothing to do with the real left. Even the writer admitted they are well paid middle class bourgeoisie.
    There is no real Left left anywhere in the West, Europe or USA. The real left is China and countries such as Vietnam and Laos and Cambodia. To call them “left” is a lie.

    You are correct as to the number of “at least 30”. However they are only variants of the (“official”) 1924 Azhar version.
