More shots have been fired in the trial run of the second American Civil War.

On August 25th, Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen-year-old citizen-militia member, was attacked at least twice by a Black Lives Matter and Antifa mob during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He was armed with a rifle, and with it killed two of his attackers and injured a third. This third attacker was about to fire a pistol at him when Rittenhouse nearly blew off his arm. That Rittenhouse is entirely blameless and fired his weapon in self-defense should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following this story from its beginnings. Also not surprising is how all three victims had criminal records (one being a sex offender, one a domestic abuser, and one for illegally possessing firearms). Predictably, the boy has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder after surrendering to the police. Since that point, Rittenhouse has become a lightning rod for the Left-Right enmity that is rapidly devouring the United States.

The boy’s age, name, family, and privacy rights mean nothing now. He’s part of history, the poor kid, and neither side will likely ever even try to come to an agreement about him. To half the country, he is a terrorist, a white supremacist, and a symbol of everything that’s wrong and racist about President Trump. To the other half — my half — Kyle Rittenhouse is a hero, a defender of the West against Marxist degeneracy and a champion of gun rights. With the way things are going these days, it is impossible to remain neutral about him. His lethal defense against the rampaging mob highlights the stark and irreconcilable differences between the Left and Right, and makes us question why both sides are even bothering to live in the same country anymore. Rittenhouse may well have achieved John Brown status. When the Civil War 2.0 starts in earnest, I’m sure both sides will be singing songs about him between battles, but they will be singing very different things about this unfortunate boy.

I’ll assume most of the details will be well-known by the time of this writing. The New York Times gives a fairly evenhanded assessment of the goings-on, allowing the reader to come to his own conclusions. Leon Wolf of the Blaze practically laughs the charge of murder off the page. And the Nationalist Review shows how people on social media are doxing Rittenhouse and threatening his family.

In some sense, this is part of an easy-to-recognize pattern which may have started with George Zimmerman in 2012 but has suffered a tragic uptick in 2020. A person on the side of Law and Order (usually a white) suffers an unprovoked attack by an opponent of Law and Order (usually a black) and responds with deadly force or the threat of deadly force. Thereafter America engages in a debate/screaming match over the event to see who will grow hoarse first. This year, we have seen the McMichaels, the McCloskeys, the Wuestenbergs, Derek Chauvin, Garrett Rolfe, and now Kyle Rittenhouse. Similar events that don’t easily fit this pattern, such as the tragic killings of David Dorn and Dillon Taylor, are quickly memory-holed. This is because Americans these days really want to scream at each other, and relish any excuse to do so.

But in another, more important, sense, the Rittenhouse affair is much, much different. For one, it was part of a larger conflict and, more than any of the events mentioned above, resembled war. Rittenhouse was caught behind enemy lines and was frantically trying to make it to safety. It took all of his self-possession and firearms training to be able to survive. Panic never overcame him. According to the New York Times, Rittenhouse fired eight times from various angles and scored three hits, two of which were kill shots. That is remarkable. What’s even more remarkable was that he shot the Antifa goon who was approaching him with a pistol in the arm which held the pistol. Was it pure luck? Or did Rittenhouse wish to disarm his attacker without killing him, gunslinger style? Maybe we will know one day soon. But in the meantime, we should know that Kyle Rittenhouse demonstrated the effectiveness of responsible firearms training and the critical importance of staying cool under pressure. To everyone on the Right, the kid is nothing less than an inspiration.

Secondly, this event illustrates the terrifying determination of the organized Left. Yes, the rioting crowd was rife with chattering Negroes, as they always are these days. One black commentator notes that there are so many white boys around. “That’s Antifa, man,” he says. When Rittenhouse is fleeing down the street, he’s overtaken and attacked by the whites. They knew he was armed. They knew he had just killed. No less than four of them attacked him anyway — three of whom appeared to be armed with guns. One tried to jump on Rittenhouse, one tried to disarm him, and one bashed him over the head with a skateboard. The thug with the pistol, one Gaige Grosskreutz, appeared last and was shot last. Now, just step back and imagine the kind of mindset one would need to lunge at an armed man. These Antifa people were not exactly inhibited by fear, were they? Instead, their hackles were up and they were motivated by the rage of war. And one gave his life for his cause.

These people are fierce and determined and organized. If the Rittenhouse affair teaches us anything, it’s that we cannot take them lightly.

Third, this event reveals how the Right has the moral high ground. Sure, we can question Rittenhouse’s parents’ motives for allowing their seventeen-year-old to participate in quelling a riot. But Rittenhouse’s motives do seem to be pure. Before the shooting, he told the Daily Caller:

So people are getting injured, and our job is to protect this business, and a part of my job is to also help people. If there’s somebody hurt, I’m running into harm’s way. That’s why I have my rifle because I need to protect myself, obviously. But I also have my med kit.

The New York Times also reported that Rittenhouse had been pepper-sprayed by the rioters, and despite this, had offered medical assistance to them.

Compare this Eagle Scout to the thugs and hooligans of BLM and Antifa who were there only to loot and burn because a few days earlier police had shot a recalcitrant Jacob Blake, a black felon who was resisting arrest and reaching for a knife in his car. In this clip, notice the hostility and aggression of the rioters against the militia, who clearly did not want to start a firefight. Notice how one of the rioters kept taunting them, repeatedly saying, “Shoot me, nigga. Shoot me, nigga.” This unhinged lout was Joseph Rosenbaum, the sex offender who later chased and threw something at Rittenhouse. This was the first person Rittenhouse killed. Afterwards, Rittenhouse remained on the scene, on his phone, presumably calling 911, until people recognized him as the shooter and started calling for his head.

Could the moral difference between Left and Right be made any clearer than this?

Finally, Kyle Rittenhouse has unintentionally done is force whites to be closer together like never before. Whites should pay attention to the following tweet by black Massachusetts representative Aryanna Pressley:

This is a proclamation from a woman who would put all conservative whites in gulags if she could. I’ve always despised black politics because black politicians almost always use the sham of anti-black racism to manipulate whites for their own selfish and corrupt interests. But this Pressley tweet represents more than this. She’s motivated more by ideology than greed. She’s trying to do with her lying words what Grosskreutz attempted to do with his handgun: destroy the life of a white man.

In today’s society, nothing can ruin a person more than calling him a white supremacist. She has absolutely no evidence behind her accusations and made them anyway. She has no basis for defending the rioters, and did so anyway. With this tweet, she’s promoting a black supremacy that’s as bald as her ugly head.

Whites should understand that it doesn’t matter if these accusations are true. It doesn’t matter that you’re innocent. It doesn’t matter what the truth is. What matters is that defending your life against a black person or a Leftist impedes the will to power of blacks and Leftists. And for this, they will make your white skin a target and they will destroy you.

It requires a person of absolutely no moral bearing to see Kyle Rittenhouse as the villain in this affair. He was protecting property and businesses against the feral mob. He was protecting himself against the feral mob. And if one white person — one that is still a boy, no less — can so effectively fight and kill as a citizen soldier, imagine how effective thousands of whites would be in the same situation.

Perhaps this is what enrages the Left the most about Kyle Rittenhouse.

    Kyle dished out searing lead to degenerates and saved himself from almost certain death. He is watched over from on high. His demeanor and actions delivered to us something even more valuable than routed communists; a massive fucking whitepill. Well done lad.

  2. Kirt says:

    Very interesting analysis. I used to read all the time that whites on the right would be triumphant in any civil war because of superior numbers, gun ownership and support of the police and the military. Recent events show that police support is evaporating where it has not already gone over to the other side, the military are still busy with the forever wars around the world and the evil and crazy leftist whites are more numerous, almost as well armed, but just not as well trained as their rightist opponents. Considering how the training gap can be closed by OJT, this is overall not good news.

  3. I can’t top what Mr. Based Lad wrote in reply, but, yes, Kyle Rittenhouse is a hero. He did the best job I could imagine in extracting himself from a situation in which he would have been killed or beaten badly (the latter already in progress by skateboard man).

    That was a great column, Mr. Quinn. I can’t help but calling out what I don’t like, and that is nothing but the one line:

    This is because Americans these days really want to scream at each other, and relish any excuse to do so.

    That is complete bullshit, there, unless by “Americans”, you mean talking heads on TV, Fed level and NYC politicians, antifa Commies, black looters, and SJW college students only.

    That was but a small flaw though, in this well-written and uplifting article … at least to me it was! Thanks. Thank you, too, Ron Unz, for putting up so many articles about this important development in what really is looking like a skirmish in a coming Civil War.*

    .

    * I’m not so sure it’ll be all that. You prevent war by taking a strong stand early on. This is not early on, but it’s not too late either. These black thugs and antifa Commies could be put down in a week, if patriotic American men got their minds off the Bread & Circuses and organized a little.

    You just named the people due to demographically ‘inherit’ America when the boomers finally croak. The truly brain dead aspect of conservatism is that for every 1 Rittenhouse, it creates 4 SJW-types. I suspect Joe Boom doesn’t care about what happens to his children’s America, but I do.

    And, what started this? A criminal by the name of George Floyd, supposedly killed by the police. George Floyd was a dead man walking. With a fentanyl level of almost 3 times the lethal dose, the new mantra should be “George Floyd Killed Himself”. Read this analysis by an state/federal prosecutor of the Hennepin County Coroner’s autopsy report: https://knowledgeisgood.net/2020/08/28/george-floyd-the-plot-thickens/
    Meanwhile, George Floyd’s brother removed the multi-million dollar Go Fund Me account when he was alerted to this article coming out. Why does the black community always make a martyr of criminals? Why don’t they make a martyr of the young black kid who rejects gang recruitment and has gasoline poured on him and set on fire? If they want to burn something, why don’t they burn down the house of the local drug dealer? If they want to shoot someone, why don’t they shoot the local gang leader/drug dealer?

  13. Spencer Quinn: “Kyle Rittenhouse has unintentionally done is force whites to be closer together like never before.”

    The operative word here is “unintentionally”. Rittenhouse is a confused, anti-racist product of a confused, anti-racist country. He’s at best a civnat hero, not a racial hero. Trying to set him up as a racial hero for whites just showcases the American right’s knack for selecting inappropriate people as role models for its cause. As far as is known, he was no more standing up for the white race than the two rioters he killed.

    Has his action actually “forced” whites to unite on racial grounds? There’s no evidence of that whatsoever. According to all the accounts I’ve read, this boy worshiped the police, who are the enforcement arm of an avowedly anti-racist government, and a key player in the systematic genocide of the white race. How can this attitude possibly serve as the basis for uniting whites for any cause except their own further destruction? It’s as though the inmates of a death camp were to unite in favor of their guards and executioners. Like so many others, Rittenhouse was a model prisoner, seeking any opportunity to be of use to his keepers. This is what Quinn is celebrating!

  14. @Achmed E. Newman

    Sorry, I have to disagree. He’s a very brave and principled young man, but not a hero. His survival instincts cut in and saved his life. Good on him, but making him a hero for saving himself is not a good idea.

    Curmudgeon, I wrote that first, and I thought about a point I made on my own site, pretty much along with what you say here. You are right that only someone putting his own life in danger for others when he would otherwise be safe, is an actual hero. However, when I thought about this my post, I thought about this. His being there in the first place is what I think is somewhat heroic.

    Anyway, thanks for bringing up this point that I’ve made myself before (regarding the “first responders”).

  18. Alden says:
    @Dr. Robert Morgan

    Here’s some facts I wish everyone would pay attention to. Please don’t criticize his parents for allowing him to go to Kenosha to fight BLM.
    Please don’t call him a vigilante. If you’re pro BLM, pro black rioters, pro arson, pro attempted murder, pro black on White crime, just say so mofa instead of mealy mouth woulda shoulda coulda criticism of this heroic White teen boy who has more balls than all the millions of White men in America together

    He went to Kenosha several days a week for his job. He worked in a town that suddenly exploded into riot and Arson. Nor is he a vigilante.

    He is a first responder First responders like police EMTs paramedics Red Cross FEMA national guards fire fighters state national county and city park rangers and many others are first responders are supposed to help local law government in emergencies riots and natural disasters

    Kyle is a life guard. Life guards are first responders. Get that oh ignorant ones? He’s a first responder. There are many jobs that are considered first responders. Lifeguards are Ali’s EMTs and paramedics. They are trained in a lot more than yelling at kids who are rough housing in park and rec pools.

    First responders are not required to wait for orders to start helping in emergency situations. They are supposed to start helping if a situation occurs.

    Kyle went to Kenosha several times a week to his lifeguard job. He wasn’t a vigilante who had no business in Kenosha. He had been a police cadet and trained to help in emergency situations.

    And once again, the gun he used is registered in WI. It belongs to a WI resident who lent it to him to guard a gas station so as to prevent the araonists from stealing more gas to start more fires. There is no federal or WI state law that’s forbids a gun owner from lending his gun to a 17 year old.
    For you old codgers fussin’ n’ fumin’ about his age, WI is a major hunting state and kids under 18 use guns all the time for training hunting and shooting coyotes and foxes killing their families livestock.

    All this information is easily obtainable on the internet.

  19. Alden says:
    @Curmudgeon

    Please read my post 20 about why Kyle did so well. He’s an official trained first responder, he was a police cadet for years and a skilled rifleman. His superb performance didn’t just happen. The strength, agility and everything physical about teen boys is amazing. Train them properly and a Kyle is the result.

    It starts about 11, even in the skinniest smallest Nordic and Asian boys.

  20. Alden says:
    @IvyMike

    Epitome of modern America. The entire media the democrat majority party, and many mayors and governors applaud the rioters and arsonists., The biggest capitalist corporations and the billion dollar great foundations fund these riots. Elected Mayors of towns like Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and others aid, abet and encourage and help the rioters and arsonists.

    And just one brave young teen White man fights back, just one out of millions of White men in America

    There’s a push back in Seattle. Remember that 19 year old, Lorenzo Anderson who went to sightsee the CHOP BLM camp and was shot dead by the BLM guards? He’s was, a very respectable black kid from a very respectable family. He did sneak out after his Dad went to bed but boys do that. Lorenzo’s Dad is suing the city of Seattle for 3 billion dollars for allowing the criminals to take over the city to the point where a young man was gunned down while walking near CHAZ.

    Civil suits might be the way to go. Maybe dey mammas of little kids shot in their own homes, not ridding in cars with their gangster fathers.

    I’m not optimistic though. Trump
    has faults but right now he’s the only hope for some law and order. But in 2024, I doubt there’ll be any pro law and order Republican

  22. @Kirt

    Usually the rioters are few in number, 150 to 200. Rarely do they get to 2,000. Don’t confuse the usually night time rioters with the usually day time demonstrators. You are forgetting that police in Democrat run cities and states have to obey the elected politicians. If these are Democrats, the police are ordered to allow rioting usually by restricting the number of police allowed to enforce the law. Even if the state police or National Guard is called in, Democrat politicians make sure the numbers are insufficient. If arrests are made, Democrat DAs refuse to charge unless a serious offence has occurred. Failing to obey a police direction is not charged so more serious offenders are deliberately provided with camouflage by DAs who support riots.

    You only have to go to a pro-Democrat website to find people claiming the electorate will blame Trump for the Democrat riots. Some do think that the Minneapolis police were somehow under the command of the US President not the Democrat mayor and black woman police commissioner. Very few are that stupid. Even Democrat talking heads are now saying that looting and arson are wrong because and only because it will result in Trump being elected. [email protected]

  23. Very well written piece, to the point, accurate, concise. I agree with every word. This kid puts the entire Federal government, and that do nothing Trump, to shame. He stopped antifa in it’s tracks. The government says it has a monopoly on the use of force and exists to protect us yet it allows thugs to run rampant then charges the hero with felonies.

    What no one says who or what antifa really is, a Jewish proxy army just like ISIS. The entire media and court system is obviously communist, BLM is also a Jewish psyop being used to silence whites (along with the mask). I see a connection with the fake ass coronavirus lockdown, the mask, and BLM as all part of an elaborate Jewish plot to silence whites, which is just one step in a larger process to not only marginalize white interest but also their eradication, leaving Jews victorious over the people who created the nation.

    There is an amazing prophecy of this time called George Washington’s Third Peril. The first two perils were the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It appears we are in the beginning stages of the third and most fearful peril. (BTW I am not religious but I find this information very amazing and worthy of reprint here, the 3rd Peril in bold)

    [MORE]

    THE PROPHETIC VISION OF GEORGE WASHINGTON,
    THE FATHER OF AMERICA

    Time/Place: Encamped mid-winter at Valley Forge, the low point of the American Revolution, having lost almost every battle and in constant retreat since the beginning of the war.

    “This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

    “By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

    “A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor, Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

    “Presently I heard a voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly. I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world; Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

    ” ‘Son of the Republic’ said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn,’ At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing, or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

    “A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

    “Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I a saw bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word `Union,’ bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

    “And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.

    “Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

    “Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

    “Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with o loud voice: `While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word `UNION,’ he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, `Amen.’

    “The scene instantly began to fad and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, ‘Son of the Republic, what you have seen Is thus interpreted: three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union’.

    “With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress and destiny of the United States.”

Because do you really think SJWs in their mommy’s basement are going to have children? And, if they do, those children will likely be aborted?

    Rittenhouse had been turned back by the police earlier when he tried to go down to where the antia were milling about. By going back he deliberately put himself in a situation where he would quite likely have to make a series of fateful split second decisions on whether to open fire and who to shoot. One of the militia went with him because they were worried about him.

    I think it is pretty clear he would not listen to older and wiser heads and did not realize what he was getting himself into was something more like a nightfall version of the Heat shootout than training on range with clearly defined targets. There were people firing before Rittenhouse opened up, but Rosenbaum was no one of them, He should not have shot Rosenbaum multiple times in the torso.

    Because he went behind enemy lines, and found the fight he was looking for. He won his first battle bare none, hands down and kudos for that, but his tougher battles lie ahead – he’s going to be negotiating political quick sand.

    What he did is the very definition of ‘hero’; he put himself in harm’s way for the sake of others.

    The term ‘hero’ has been grossly distorted in the US. Captain Sullenberger was anointed a “hero” by the scumbag MSM for crashing an aircraft, after grossly sub-optimally handling the flight, after disobeying SOP and looking out at the nice view and discussing it with his F/O. SOP require ‘sterile cockpit’ below 10,000(at least – some carriers could be higher), and that means no talk except on operational matters. Capt Sullenberger did not place himself in harm’s way for the benefit of others’; Kyle Rittenhouse did.

    A further degeneration of metaphysics to paranoia has come about; “live and let die” is accordingly not only the secret agent’s motto but also the principle of modern warfare based on artillery and its extensions.[slaughterdik]

  44. That Rittenhouse is entirely blameless and fired his weapon in self-defense should come as no surprise to anyone who’s been following this story from its beginnings. Also not surprising is how all three victims had criminal records (one being a sex offender, one a domestic abuser, and one for illegally possessing firearms). Predictably, the boy has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder after surrendering to the police. Since that point, Rittenhouse has become a lightning rod for the Left-Right enmity that is rapidly devouring the United States.

    this is what is wrong with the FPWN Fake Patriot -White Nationalists of Amerikkka. This boy, as you admit had no business crossing state lines and going into a mob demonstration, which ever side of the line you may be on. Security at the demonstration was a police matter, not a Fna vigilante matter. What is a boy doing parading with an auto assault weapon at this demonstration, he does not represent anyone except himself.

    Who really sent him there??? The Jewish kids that chased him had every right to seek to disarm someone with such a threatening weapon at their demonstration, in this case demonstrating for a real cause: the gunning down in the back of an unarmed black father shot in the back. Oh how noble is that ? What does their past record have to do with their shooting. If a black kid of BLM walked into a FPWN demonstration carrying an assault rifle what would their reaction be, ” Hi have a nice day”?

    The FPWN need to get a life and focus on their real enemies and issues. When our masters and supra money class take all you have, your dumb Fna answer is to go and beat up on the Nigs or Spics on the other side of the railroad tracks, rather than coming together and putting things back on a sane course where equal rights and liberties and pursuit of happiness is for all.

    Yes you are all so proud of an idiot kid and yourselves as you cower from the real issues facing Amerikkka and you go back to serving and cheering your Repub (or Dem) plutocratic Master Sergeants that are gleefully pauperizing the nation as they hand over America’s riches to the super wealthy elite and their foreign partners. Good for you, on with it, show’em why you bought all those AR’s.

    Reading the above blogs sickens me and tells me that maybe America is going down the drain for good reason, the general public has no ability to think themselves out of a paper bag and cannot tie any thing together, maybe even their shoe laces. Reading this crap that this boy is some how totally innocent sickens me and tells me we are hopeless.

  45. @Alden

    I believe that Rittenhouse was probably sincere & idealistic in his actions. Wsa he “a defender of the West against Marxist degeneracy” ? Degeneracy, yes, Marxist, no.
    There is nothing “Marxist” about this (to quote) “feral mob”. Marx sought to empower working people, not to allow the lumpen proletariat to run amok, killing, burning, stealing for no purpose above their own degenerate impulses.
    However, there is purpose behind all this riot: “The entire media the democrat majority party, and many mayors and governors applaud the rioters and arsonists., The biggest capitalist corporations and the billion dollar great foundations fund these riots. Elected Mayors of towns like Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and others aid, abet and encourage and help the rioters and arsonists.”
    As Alden alludes to the purpose is not “left” or marxist, it is purely capitalistic. It is driven by Democrats & their allies to make Trump’s reelection impossible. This is why the MSM typically downplays any element of riot & highlights “peaceful protest”. This is why the riots tend to be in democrat controlled areas.
    They hate Trump. For many reasons (he’s soooo… vulgar !). However, # 1 reason is Trump’s foreign policy which is simply not sufficiently Imperialist. This is why we see many former Bush people & other neoconservatives openly shifting to the Democrats.
    Since before day one, Trump has been hammered, undermined & poisoned for the reason he wanted to open dialogue with Russia (from a Strategic view quite clever: Nixon & Kissinger did the same back in the 70’s with China, so as to split them off from Russia).
    I haven’t agreed with any US for … ever, I suppose. But, the question arises, who is more likely to tip the world into war, the democrats or the republicans ? At the moment its clearly the democrats. Just look at Obama: Libya, the Ukraine, Syria, Honduras….One day our luck will run out & a president will play brinkmanship & lose balance & topple over. (recall Obama’s Sec of State drawing lines in the sand over chemical weapons in Syria ? Only his off hand remark about Syria getting rid of all its chemical weapons (they’ll never do that !) avoided a situation that could have drawn Russia into a shooting war with the US.

    Marxism’s fundamental error is ignoring natural hierarchy. For the marxist, it follows that if an identifiable dominant class exists, then that class must have oppressed subordinate classes. When dealing with homogeneous societies, these are the precise terms in which the marxist frames his specious arguments.

    In multiracial societies, naturally arising inequalities are even starker, offering fertile pissing grounds for the academically minded charlatan.

    Because those inequalities correlate so tightly with race, the marxist adopts explicitly racial terms, which are the stock in trade of identity politics, to express their same flawed opposition to the natural order as their less-lethal classical-marxist forebear.

    This form of marxism, known variously as Gramscian marxism, Critical Race Theory, equalitarianism etc, involves new expressions of the same fundamental error. These delusions are often labeled neo-marxism.

    I agree with your assessment that us “boomers” were not the problem.

    It is the “greatest generation” that fomented the destruction of the major cities. The “greatest generation” eviscerated true “freedom of association” and “restrictive (real estate) covenants”, NOT us “boomers”. Had forced integration and the abolition of “freedom of association” not been the case, the cities would be far better places today.

    Many of us “boomers” protested against the misguided “civil-rights (for some) laws and statutes that were forced on us by those of the “greatest generation” under the auspices of jewish groups. Let’s not forget the jewish destruction of civil society with “bussing” schemes of the 1970s in which jewish judges ruled that “blacks had to sit next to whites in order to be able to learn”. That was another aspect of the so-called “civil-rights (for some)” movement that pushed whites out of cities.

    Us white “boomers” who protested were “pushed back” into obscurity by the jewish-run pro-civil-rights (for some) mainstream media as well as by federal troops.

    A good example of judicial tyranny was the demand by judges that property taxes be increased so that “a new school” could be built for blacks in Kansas City. The school that was built was state-of-the-art, having the best amenities that (taxpayer) dollars could buy. It didn’t take but a few years for the state-of-the-art school to be trashed by the very blacks attending it.

    The “greatest generation” made the world safe for today’s world jewry domination of western societies. In my humble opinion, we fought on the “wrong side”.

    There is an currently running HBO series, a “what if” situation in which Charles Lindbergh wins the presidency instead of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is a sappy jew-produced program that is designed to elicit pity for the “poor jews”, reinforcing their status as “victims”.

    If Lindbergh had not been marginalized by the power structure, and had achieved the presidency, we would be living in a much better world today. World War 2 would have been “Europe’s war” for Europeans to figure out.

    The sad part of the whole situation is that our “best and brightest” were sacrificed on the battlefield…for what??

    Many people’s assessment of “boomers” being blamed for the suburbs is off-base. The suburbs were a reaction to the illegal “civil-rights” and desegregation orders. White flight? Absolutely right.

    As to cities, you can have them. Although being born in a (once) great city, the idea of stacking people up on top of each other in apartments and condos, with the resultant disease and urban “vibrancy” is not my cup of tea. Let’s not forget that “desegregation orders” and “fair housing” laws did much to push us white boomers out of the cities and into the suburbs.

    All one has to do is look at Jew (New) York City. Most of the people who live there don’t own and will never be able to own anything of real value, instead paying inflated, exorbitant “rent” to some fat jew shylock landlord. $3000 per month for a sixth-floor 300 square-foot “walkup” with a malfunctioning elevator is no bargain.

    Most of the people cannot afford to own anything, despite wages being relatively high. Ownership of real estate is definitely out of the question for most New York City residents.

    What is wrong with people choosing how and where they want to live? Many people might not like suburbs, preferring the “vibrancy” and urban decay of cities, but in the “good ol’ USA, people STILL have choices.

    As has been evident since 2016, the Democrats’ Allied Media continues to constitute ever more damaging weakness masquerading as strength.

    I won’t belabor what this author and others have done a fine job of noting. Let’s just say they have a lot to work with when it comes to young Kyle and what was immediately Transmission Belted about the 17 year old.

    You couldn’t have scripted a worse fact set for Democrats and their Allied Media. Everything else aside, what kind of idiots take the side of three men convicted of violent offenses, including a registered sex offender, against this young man?

    While I’ve seen little discussion of it as yet, most observers, regardless of their politics, know that these men targeted Kyle. Rather obviously, none of the three are shot callers so I await all of us learning what Antifa organizers ordered the attack on him.

    Apparently young Kyle was Johnny on the spot helping to clean up damage done to the school by the rioting the night before. He then joined some men protecting businesses that evening.

    Control of the media makes you stupid. Though Ayanna Pressley and so many others on Team Democrat were already there.

    This may not be an appealing point here but one feature of the Democrats nasty identity politics that has reached the parody stage is their sick habit of blaming blacks after the whole shebang they initiated and filed redounds against their political objectives.

    Antifa remains a “myth,” and if you’re not any longer buying that BLM is all smiles und sunshine then don’t forget the first word in their name is ‘Black’ when you are voting.

    Kenosha from start to finish is a disaster for the Democrats. Read Steve Sailer for a concise, spot on explanation of Jacob Blake shooting. You couldn’t have scripted and produced an accompanying video if you were trying to get across how dangerous and difficult a job police officers have responding to domestic disputes.

    Skipping to the finish, is the monumental fail that is Kyle’s immediate arrest on murder charges. What better exemplifies the sick and self-defeating Who?Whom? of the Democrats and their Allied Media than their knee-jerk siding with the filth that were attacking him.

    Conceptually, the Torts doctrine that you take your victims as you find then applies here. Indeed, it applies, much to the detriment of Democrats, in terms of victim and victimizers alike.

    After the small businesses are closed, they’ll close the banks, steal the assets, and raid the pension funds. Starvation is not to be ruled out either. Next (((they’ll))) “save” us by imposing more of a military/totalitarian nightmare on us, and the sad thing is that the vast bulk of the lumpenprols will support their own slavery as they always have, with all they have.

    Thank you for the info.

    We have information about Rittenhouse’s training. We can understand what he did in Kenosha. Still, we know very little about his mindset, his character, or how morally/lawfully/generously he would act in situations where his life was not in danger, i. e., comment #18 by truth. Perhaps in this instance he has acted lawfully.

    The author seems about right when he says Americans can’t be detached in Rittenhouse’s case.

    Rittenhouse works in Kenosha. He is a lifeguard and EMT. Life guards are official first responders. He was guarding a gas station to prevent the rioters from stealing gas to commit further arsons. He works in Kenosha he has as much right to be in Kenosha as anyone. There are no WI state laws about bringing rifles into WI from out of state. Rittenhouse did nothing wrong.

    All of the adults who had a part in that poor ignorant child being out in the streets with a rifle that night should already be in jail.

    When I was 17, no adult could control me except to the extent to which I controlled myself. I would conjecture that, when you were 17, no adult could control you, either. Two of my five children have passed the age of 17: they’re good kids, but my limited influence upon them at that age drew almost solely on the bank of credibility I had built with them during earlier years. My actual ability to direct 17-year-olds against their will was, is and always will be essentially zero.

    There is a reason the U.S. Army is happy to issue a 17-year-old a rifle, incorporate him into the infantry, and send him to war. The reason is, he’s a man.

    The notion that a 17-year-old were a child is an occasionally useful, transitional legal fiction without substantive basis in reality. An 11-year-old is a child; a 17-year-old is not and never will be.

    I will wait to see whether the young man in the video is actually Rittenhouse. It could be he. Within the video’s low resolution, I cannot say that it is not he. It’s hard to tell. (A separate photo, purportedly of Rittenhouse, has been floating around, in which the person photographed is grinning while holding a rifle in a tactical ready position. The young man in that photo looks a little more like the girl beater than the Rittenhouse of Kenosha does, but then the same question applies to the photograph: is it Rittenhouse? Could be. If it isn’t, then it ties no evidence.)

    “Why does the black community always make a martyr of criminals?”

    Cause that’s who they look up to. A man who can flash his cash and bling and fancy car.

    Just look at Mardi Gras in New Orleans. People on the street scramble for the stuff they throw from the parade floats. Members of the Krewes call themselves and dress like Royalty and when you’re high on booze and coke, caught up in the spirit of the thing, its all an uproarious party. But the next day, you look at the stuff you wore around your neck and the doubloons and such and they’re just Chinese made gold plated plastic.

    That’s the essence of blackdom. That’s their celebration. Get high and live in a fantasy world of imagined royalty and fabulous wealth of shiny trinkets. But only a child could want to live in that never-never land for every moment of their lives. That’s where black people want to be all the time, high, in Wakanda where everything is free for the picking.

    Those evil white devils keep bringing blacks back to earth. The Reality principle. The Superego. So for blacks, carefree in Wakanda, whites are the devil incarnate, always calling them back to responsibility and foresight and work when they’d rather party in Mardi Gras every day of their lives. They want to live in the moment, like a child, but whites keep dragging them out of it. Making them plan for the future and such. And like that black guy shot seven times in the back, he wasn’t going to let no white man tell him what he’s gotta do. Not now, not never. And if you whites persist, then that means war.

    What’s wrong is the two party system.. it is impossible for members of either party to vote for the President or the Vice President. and each voter who lives to be 90 years of age can caste a ballot that counts for all who )are running for office. (Yep, over you lifetime you have at most 60 votes, if you live to be 90 years old. If you die or become unable your choice by vote is even less important.

    What’s wrong is the two party system the two party system splits the people into waring factions, fighting over who shall be elected to the government so they can force their intentions on the loser.
    In a democracy, people break down the elements of the different opinions, and resolve them into a series of binaries (yes, no), the majority vote to determine the resolution of the conflict.
    In USA governed America, Americans are allowed to vote for persons to fill just three, elected positions during their life time. The number of positions in the federalized system of government is fixed (three), the number of persons a voter can who lives to be ninety years old can can vote for is very, very limited.

    <-Number of Times a person who lives t/b 90 can vote for candidates..
    Each voter allowed 24 votes during his/her 90 yr life time to vote persons into 2 seats out of 100 Senate seats.
    Each voter allowed 36 votes during his/her 90 yr life time to vote persons into 1 seat out of 425 House seats.
    Each voter is allowed 0 votes during his/her life time to vote persons into Pres or VP.
    ( The electoral college elects both the President and the Vice President. )

    Problem with the votes allowed during one's lifetime is there are 100 senators and 425 members of the house to be elected into the position, so your vote really does not count.

    Restated: the constitution has allowed the USA to block all places in America, where angry Americans can debate and decide,among themselves how to resolved a certain question. and even if they did, no mechansm exist to obligate the government to honor the solution democracy could solve.

    The elected idiots in Washington, could not solve such a question themselves because no matter how hard they might try <=there is not enough under the table money to sway their corrupt demands for this type of problem, and the elected in position to write law capable to solve the problem rarely understand the problem well enough to solve it by legislation?

    Wrong TT, “Cracker” is the short form, it is more correctly “Florida Cracker”. The Spanish began cattle ranching in North Florida, and this was continued and expanded by The Americans in the early 19th century. Floridians are the original cowboys, hence we are called “Crackers” after whip cracking. The cattle were not struck by the whip, but the sound was useful in herding as it cuts over the noise made by the cattle. There is a special breed of horse the “Cracker Horse” that was used in Florida cattle ranching. Today breeders keep the Cracker Horse lineage, but it is rare. Later cattle ranching spread along the Gulf Coast out to SE Texas, everything from North Florida to SE Texas is excellent cattle country: flat, warm all year, with plentiful rainfall. “Florida Cracker” was, and in my mind still is, a compliment. It has been perverted by the dirty joooo media into an insult, and their IQ70 negro pets have latched onto it too. I remember a New Jersey joooo in the ’70’s trying to insult me calling me “a cracker”, gave her a piece of my mind, shut her up good. Yes, first the joooo tried to use Cracker as an insult to all Southerners, now they think they can insult any White person as a “Cracker”. It really ONLY applies to native born White Floridians. I am a proud Florida Cracker. I remember as a kid I picked up whip cracking real fast. I’ve done a bit of leather braiding as well, that spoke to my soul instantly. “Cracker” as an insult, my ass!! Talk about “cultural appropriation”!! I’m gonna need some groveling apologies and some reparations!

    My solution to the whole “election” fiasco is simple… All parties are judged illegal and forever banned. Representatives are randomly selected through a lottery system and the number of those selected is proportional to the population. No gerrymandering ever again! Terms of office are two years, once done you can never be selected again, your staff is likewise pulled randomly and likewise only stay as long as you stay. Once its over its over for life. No bennies, no special insurance, no security details, nothing. You get “paid” a fixed amount to maintain your life while doing your “service” until you’re released, live in a dorm facility and are required to improve the lot of the citizenry. Any subversion of the system is met with lifetime exile with the penalty of death for ever returning… that goes for immediate family and is perpetual. Also all personal and business assets for any form of cronyism or favoritism is forfeit for trying to circumvent or weaken the system. You can turn down being selected in case you view it as being too burdensome. The idea is simple… being a public servant should come at a cost, its either a sacrifice or it isnt, and you should then get the hell out of dodge never to return. When people WANT to rule over others thats a sign of evil.

    Damn close, Adamant, but it is Florida Cracker, thank you very much… HOWEVER, whips aren’t used INSTEAD of lariats, they are both used, and for completely different jobs. The Lariat, from La Reata(Spanish), is a braided RAWHIDE, not leather, rope. The Lariat is a simple four strand braid the entire length, closed with Turks Head knots at the ends. The Whip is a complex construction, looks like work for an expert braider, entire books have been written just on whip construction. In the early 19th century cattle ranching there was plenty of cattle, but very few dry goods stores, and even less money. Hemp rope and even iron nails were rare. Cattle were slaughtered at the ranch, and the meat was dried then exported and/or consumed at home. This produced many hides, but tanneries were few, and rawhide is easily produced. Rawhide is durable, and beautiful, a translucent white. “Cowboy Iron” is a name for rawhide and it made reasonably durable braided rope: The Lariat. Since iron nails weren’t easy to come by, fences were lashed together with braided rawhide thongs, water soaked first they tightened up nice as they dryed. And no those Crackers weren’t stupid, they did EVERYTHING, carpentry, leatherwork for hats, clothing and horse gear, and along with the cattle, farming too. That white sandy soil of North Florida is marvelous for growing red potatoes and white onions. That white sandy soil of North Florida is great for a BBQ the real way: dig a trench and get a fire in the bottom down to glowing coals. Meanwhile you have cut up your beef, arrange it nice, so everybody gets all the cuts, on burlap then wrap it up like a tube, lay a thin layer of white sandy soil over the coals, meat over that, fill the trench with sand.

    well if one of the shooting victims had a gun, he could have shot Kyle first, claiming self-defense as Kyle had the bigger weapon and was not part of their street demonstration.

    So give me a break, who shot first, he was best to not be there in an armed capacity in the first place and second place, not to be the one to shoot first.

    Sorry, I dont have any sympathy for Kyle, he is not a cop out on the beat, but an Agent Provocateur of sorts, jumping into a riot situation that is already full of Agent Provocateurs.

    Enough of the black/white, Trump/Dem BS, you are all being played handily for bringing down America, but are too dumb to see it.

    The only thing that will save US from impending disaster at this point is not a re-election of the Zio-Turd Trump, yes a puppet for Kushner and his masters, but is for the real American public to gain some morality, ethics and principle and act on it.

    Yes, I agree that the police seem to be absent and MIA these days when riots and pillaging occurs across Middle America.

    This is further evidence that these shooting incidents and riots are being propelled or at least exploited for bigger political objectives. The public is being played to have an internal US social explosion, so martial law can be imposed and the Constitution and Bill of Rights torn up for good.

  210. Loup-Bouc says:

    Generally Spencer Quinn’s article presents a level-headed view of the matters it addresses. I comment only concerning two of the article’s assertions.

    (1)

    A person on the side of Law and Order (usually a white) suffers an unprovoked attack by an opponent of Law and Order (usually a black) and responds with deadly force or the threat of deadly force.

    The problem language is this: “…an unprovoked attack by an opponent of Law and Order (usually a black)….

    That language’s “usually black” part is false. I have shown so several time with comments I posted under several Unz Review articles. I shall not repeat the proofs here. My purpose here is merely to protest Spencer Quinn’s continuation of that unfortunately common inflammatory false narrative occurring at Unz Review and other Alt Right journals.

    I suppose I must repeat, again, for perhaps the seventh or eighth time in about a month: I am not Black, but pure Finno-Ugric. I dislike Black “culture,” even despise some of it. Muy politics are not of the “left, “middle,” or “right,” but nonexistent. I oppose the Black Lives Matter [“BLM”] movement, the Antifa rioting, and the provacative Right Wing protests that confront the BLM protests and Antifa rioting and related looting, just as I opine that Democrat officials act criminally when they fail to quell the Antifa rioting and related looting.

    My consistent inclination are: (a) endeavor to identify real issues and disregard emotional ones and try to identify the most Benthamian utilitarian resolution of real issues; argue for individual justice premised on non-political, unemotional, logical evaluation of all available valid, reliable evidence.

    [MORE]

    Woke ness political correctness, cancel culture, #MeeToo, #BelieveWomen, BLM, Antifa, and post-Eisenhower pseudo-Conservatism are manifestations of emotional plague (serious psychic illness), just as are and have been the psychopathic domestic-oppression, neoliberal, neoconservative, and pro-Israel/pro-Zionism and anti-Russian/anti-Chinese (and similar illegal international actions) actions of all federal executive administrations, Congresses, and Supreme Court Justices since John F. Kennedy was murdered (by yet-unidentified persons and interests).

    (2)

    Thereafter America engages in a debate/screaming match over the event to see who will grow hoarse first. This year, we have seen the McMichaels, the McCloskeys, the Wuestenbergs, Derek Chauvin, Garrett Rolfe, and now Kyle Rittenhouse.

    I lack information sufficient to enable me to put a rational opinion concerning any but two of the persons Spencer Quinn mentions in his above-quoted language. The two are Derek Chauvin and Kyle Rittenhouse.

    Respecting Mr. Rittenhouse’s case, my opinion is that of a lawyer (which I have been since 1968) and law professor (which I have been since 1972). Respecting Mr. Chauvin’s case, my opinion is that of lawyer, law professor and physician (physician since 1995).

    All the currently online-available published evidence indicates that Mr. Rittenhouse did not commit homicide or attempted any degree of homicide (intentional, reckless, or negligent), or even criminal assault, against the three mob-members he shot. No creditable published evidence suggests Mr. Rittenhouse violated a weapons-carrying law. The currently online-available evidence indicates that Mr. Rittenhouse’s actions were instances of self-defense conduct. Mr. Rittenhouse is guilty only of stupidity.

    All the voluminous available evidence (evidence, not politics-or-psychopathy-driven bullshit) indicates beyond doubt that Mr. Chauvin murdered George Floyd. I have shown so with more than 100 comments posted under about seven other Unz Review articles.

    I SHALL NOT POST ANOTHER COMMENT IN THIS THREAD. i SHALL NOT REPLY TO COMMENTS POSTED IN THIS THREAD. i HAVE SAID QUITE ENOUGH CONCERNING THE GEORGE FLOYD CASE AND THE FREQUENCY OF ACTUAL VIOLENT CRIMES COMMITTED BY BLACKS VERSUS THE FREQUENCY OF ACTUAL VIOLENT CRIMES COMMITTED BY NON-BLACKS.

    If not war, how do we clean up the trash? Talking stopped working a while ago.

    For “the trash” in the US to exist, it must be heavily subsidized. The US subsidies are at a bare minimum 0.8 trillion dollars/year, and likely several times that. The people you refer to as “the trash” are (metaphorically) plants in vote farms, which farms are maintained by cities that cannot support their population or government establishments by economic activity. This current rioting / conflict is an attempt by the people who organized the city vote farms to keep their subsidy money coming. As usual in such affairs, organizers are using the vote farm’s young men (and their own aspirants to employment withing the ranks of organizers) as shock troops. Strategically, the organizers are trying to regain the escalation dominance that won their predecessors the revolution of the 1960s.

    The organizers cannot win. Taxation of a prosperous country is the only way to get the money that the organizers / cities / vote farms need for simple maintenance. A command economy delivers much less in usable goods/services than a money economy, so Federal revenues will go down, not up. Since the command economy relies of force, military / police costs will go up. Net Federal income will decrease sharply. The current riots have destroyed the tax base of the rioting cities, so local taxes will not collect much. The 50 years of gross over-taxation and regulation have destroyed US prosperity, and for that matter US military strength and financial strength, so foreign sourced income will decrease, perhaps to zero or a large negative value. There will be no increase in money for the organizers, even if the reach their goals. There will be a dramatic decrease.

    Proof that the money is gone? Note that the organizers / cities / vote farms are running shoestring riot operations, with very low cost labor and very low cost logistics, in friendly territories only. Note that, while the fire/looting cost of the riots is very large, the money doesn’t come out of this-year city budgets, and the organizers and cities can hope to be reimbursed by the damage should a Democratic Administration win the 2020/11 elections. Shoestring, because they are broke.

    A problem for the rest of us, of course, is that the US is will be neither prosperous nor militarily powerful. There will be serious problems after the current riots, problems that will make any support of the organizers / cities / vote farms not only politically difficult, but flatly impossible. We should expect a USSR level of failure in the US. We must also expect a significant interruption in world trade while (in the absence of US stabilization) various regional powers determine which is the strongest.

    So: expect one of two outcomes:
    Biden wins. He attempts a command economy, fails. Extreme hardship follows. Biden government cannot get enough money for the organizers / cities / vote farms, but does stop business activity (as his compatriots in the Democratic Party have done with COVID-19 lockdowns). The Federal Government becomes unable to function, as did the government of the USSR and its immediate successor government. Eventually, a new government forms, with new political parties. Casualties are heavy, as during the later stages even minimal support will be unavailable for those displaced.

    Trump wins. He attempts to gain control of the US Federal Government, and becomes as powerful as FDR, and quite possibly holds the US together long enough for new political parties to form. Casualties are moderate, as minimal support will be available to many of those displaced.

    Again, note that COVID-19 and similar disasters of overpopulation have caused food shortages worldwide, most notably in Africa. Without global trade, these shortages will become famines. Against these famines, US casualties will be regarded as close to affluence.

    “But in another, more important, sense, the Rittenhouse affair is much, much different. For one, it was part of a larger conflict and, more than any of the events mentioned above, resembled war. Rittenhouse was caught behind enemy lines and was frantically trying to make it to safety.”

    Right. Just like a video game. He crossed state lines, violated city curfew and – unless he has a parentally endorsed Illinois FOID (Firearms Owner’s Identification) required for those under 21 years-old – illegally wielded a deadly weapon (Wisconsin minimum age is 18) as a want-to-be fantasy patriot (self-appointed vigilante). All sanctioned by a police force that shot a man seven times in the back point-blank days before.

    Four officers from the same police force (Kenosha Wis) executed (shot point-blank through the head) a tased, choked, restrained, unarmed 21-year-old man bent over the hood of a car 9 Nov 2004. The victim was (white) Michael E. Bell (son of an Air-Force officer), stopped and assaulted “absent reasonable suspicion that criminal activity was afoot”.

    https://michaelbell.info/OverviewOfKeyPoints.html

    “It took all of his self-possession and firearms training to be able to survive…[he] demonstrated the effectiveness of responsible firearms training and the critical importance of staying cool under pressure.”

    Did he? Please describe Kyle’s firearms training and experience. Be specific. Venders, hours, courses, certification, weapons, range time, etc.

    “Panic never overcame him…[he] fired eight times from various angles and scored three hits, two of which were kill shots. That is remarkable…”

    Really? Why did he fall fleeing his first victim? Panic or chubby clumsiness? Semi-automatics allow rapid point-and-firing, enhancing the chance of hitting something. They don’t require great skill.

    “Kyle Rittenhouse To everyone on the Right, the kid is nothing less than an inspiration.”

    Inspirational? You mean like Jerry Falwell Jr.? Whoops! Or More like Dylan Root? He scored even more kill shots, doubtless a tribute to his “self-possession and firearms training” and “staying cool under pressure” when “caught behind enemy lines”. Dylan, of course, thrived on a similar “terrifying determination of…chattering Negroes” (especially those in Bible-Class), and scored one-for-one. His victims weren’t armed, but he didn’t know that for sure. Great act of courage.

    One could say the same about Nicolas Cruz and Adam Lanza (even more kill shots), but somehow shooting dozens of unarmed white students and teachers (especially 6-year-olds) doesn’t feed the same compost when the murderers and victims are white. Wonder why?

    For a fictional treatement, see Lionel Schriver, The Mandables, and John Ringo et. al., The Last Centurion.

    Remember that there are in the US about 270 million in urban areas, out of a total population of 330 million in the US as a whole (both figures to 2 places accuracy). Failure of the cities is going to be, ah, a highly significant event.

OTO, if we’re talking about how to be subserviant to the establishment, then we should consider the police to be experts.

    But FWIW, nevermind what the police decide, there is a very high probability that it’s Rittenhouse in that video and the optics are not good for Rittenhouse to say the least. It looks like a scene out of a Jerry Springer episode.

    Rittenhouse was with a libertard group that explicitly said they were not going to protect public property, only private.

    Actually a good point. All of that goes away also: zombie corporations, political banks, political military and defense establishment, support for Israel — the whole package. It would be hard to overstate the magnitude of the change.

    Again, the USSR had very similar problems. After Stalin died, their system kind of froze. Stalin could rule by terror, and he had a unified objective: build a military that could conquer Europe. Kruschev could not rule by terror and had no single objective. He tried to reform Russian industry, but could not. Plant managers that could survive under Stalin had no trouble fending of Kruschev. Eventually he was reduced to long profanity laced radio broadcasts that nobody important cared about, and then to retirement. After K, the system congealed. Every job became a patronage job. The air quality got so bad that railroad switching equipment dissolved under the air pollution / acid rain near some smelters. Money allocated by the economic planners was re-allocated in every level of the hierarchy, so that its final use was unrelated to what the planners wanted. Eventually the planners’ economic plans became guesses at what the USSR’s industrial plant would produce under its own guidance rather than plans. And the entire industry was allowed to run down, sacrificing future production for today’s political stability.

    In short, the USSR went through the same path the USA followed after the 1960s.

    I will say, though, that you overused the word “scum”, and that the implication of moral turpitude in such discussions of a system that has no moral content whatsoever is misplaced. You may or may not be morally superior to any element of the system — if you are, congratulations, and let’s go to something more interesting.

    What makes someone White? Was Kršna White? Was Wiracocha? Is it something more than having light skin or using a language for everything? Why then is all that named according to the color that’s all of them?

    I hope you understand my question, as I’m genuinely curious what makes one White more so than white. You are clearly capable and proud of your skills. So your pride makes you a great candidate to learn from about what you mean by White, rather than hear it from officials and falsecasters.

    Little correction. Lenin was not poor. Nor was Trotsky. None of them, in fact. Trotsky says in his autobiography that his family had thirty servants. Alexander Parvus (Israel Gelfand) ended up with a palace in Berlin. Lenin as head of the party received the party dues and had an income of several hundred thousand dollars a year. He had expenses, of course, but spent most of his time in spas like Baden Baden. He also ate in the best restaurants. The Cloiserie de Lilas in Paris has a plaque on a table for their him and other good customers. During the revolution they sent money to New York and Zurich to pay back their financiers, and also into their own bank accounts.

    Blacks don’t have the IQ to rig car bombs or trip wire explosives. And when it looks like BLM are finally going to loot and burn an exurb some Timothy McVeigh will rig some fertilizer bomb and kill 100 of them at once.

    Even black gangs are not as sophisticated as white ones. Bloods and Crips never used car bombing like the Italians and Irish syndicates back East because they simply don’t have the IQ on average. It’s the same reason the Russians in New York and Italians get away with murder while blacks and Mestizos are always caught.

    You’re going to see some WRONG TURN and HILLS HAVE EYES horrors when BLM looters come into the exurbs.

    Let me add that this will not be brave confrontations. Blacks have more primitive courage in confrontations. It takes no courage to rig a trip wire across a road that kills hundreds of BLM looters or shoot some looters head off from an attic at 1000 yards in the dark.

    You can hear the screams of BLM protesters the first time that happens AH….DAMNNNN NIGGGAH.

    You have no idea how cold Kenosha is going to get. Much less the exurbs. You would climb over your own mother to get away from that sort of cold and get inside.

    No way are BLM looters going to go 40 or 50 miles away from cities and endure those sort of hardships.

    And let me tell you this. A good many blacks have spent some time in the military-maybe because the judge sentenced them there-and many don’t last long. But they understand full well what rural guerrilla warfare will entail.

    Burning city suburbs in liberal cities accomplishes nothing. Most of those people are Democrats. Getting to the GOP hinterlands is a different matter.

    The Leftist white hippies with skateboards will get it worse. Whites can go after other whites without triggering a race war and the leftist anarchists who fit the Rosenbaum mold-urban, middle-class, Jewish or ethnic white-will get it the worse.

    Crackers are the absolute opposite of Irish-American Catholics. They are descended from Ulster Scots Protestants who fought the Irish Catholics in Northern Ireland.

    Charles Manson, that hillbilly guru, was interviewed by the Irish Times once and was quick to point out that he was a Scot. The so-called crackers used Northern Ireland as a jumping off port, but they consider themselves lowland Scots.

    Evangelical Protestantism is synonymous with crackers.

    Blacks themselves sometimes confuse Irish Americans and Ulster Scots. Because of appearance. But historically they were enemies.

    To the general audience:
    Q: Why is the above quote accepted as within the realm of normal discourse (at least if it comes from a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & People of Color)?
    A: Such statements are legalized by the 1964 Civil Rights Act (CRA) as interpreted by the Judicial Branch of the Federal Government.

    See Christopher Caldwell, The Age of Entitlement. The CRA is interpreted to have made Whites (as a racial category) responsible for any difference in any sociologically measurable quality between BIPOC and Whites (but apparently not Jews). Therefore, obviously bigoted statements such as the blockquote above are accepted, even from Whites (who are assumed to be simply repeating with both the BIPOC and the CRA say).

    Note that Biden’s policies WRT an end to local zoning are authorized (nay, forced) by the CRA.

    You will know that something fundamental has changed when the CRA is repealed, and should know that nothing fundamental (in the CRAs area, anyway) has changed while the CRA is in effect. While the CRA is in effect, Whites have no rights except (in some cases) when dealing with each other.

    True, of course. And yet officers in the field have the capability to exercise their discretion as to which crimes or infractions to investigate and a lot of leeway regarding the methods for doing so. Once an officer gets into his patrol car at the start of shift, he’s pretty much “captain of his own ship” to a large extent. Vandalism, arson, assaults taking place within the plain view of officers would seem to demand a response rather than turning a blind eye as one might do for “no harm, no foul” traffic infractions.

    Although a mayor or city council might direct the PD as a whole to allow a so-called “peaceful protest” to occur (despite the absence of any parade permit, etc.), I doubt that even the most commie-infested city govt. would issue a written directive to ignore violent felonies in progress taking place within the officers’ field of vision. To do so would be to open the door for massive civil suits and, in a sane world, Federal DOJ actions for violation of the victims’ civil rights through inaction.

    You can’t make martyrs unless you already control the narrative. The left can make a martyr of anyone. Just about every leftist martyr this century has an extremely checkered past (the latest being the BLM “protestors” who got shot by Rittenhouse). So, I think you are just extremely wrong here.

    LAST night, among his fellow roughs,
    He jested, quaff’d, and swore;
    A drunken private of the Buffs,
    Who never look’d before.
    To-day, beneath the foeman’s frown,
    He stands in Elgin’s place,
    Ambassador from Britain’s crown
    And type of all her race.

    Poor, reckless, rude, low-born, untaught,
    Bewilder’d, and alone,
    A heart with English instinct fraught
    He yet can call his own.
    Aye, tear his body limb from limb,
    Bring cord, or axe, or flame:
    He only knows, that not through him
    Shall England come to shame.

    Far Kentish hop-fields round him seem’d,
    Like dreams, to come and go;
    Bright leagues of cherry-blossom gleam’d,
    One sheet of living snow;
    The smoke above his father’s door
    In grey soft eddyings hung:
    Must he then watch it rise no more,
    Doom’d by himself, so young?

    Yes, honour calls! – with strength like steel
    He puts the vision by.
    Let dusky Indians whine and kneel;
    An English lad must die.
    And thus, with eyes that would not shrink,
    With knee to man unbent,
    Unfaltering on its dreadful brink,
    To his red grave he went.

    Vain, mightiest fleets of iron framed;
    Vain, those all-shattering guns;
    Unless proud England keep, untamed,
    The strong heart of her sons.
    So, let his name through Europe ring-
    A man of mean estate,
    Who died, as firm as Sparta’s king,
    Because his soul was great.

    I read both Mike Whitney’s and Spencer Quinn’s defenses of Kyle Rittenhouse, but I have another interpretation of events: the trouble was not so much Rittenhouse as his gun.

    For the record, my information relies on videos of the event and on the New York Times careful reconstruction of events, which Mr. Quinn calls “fairly evenhanded.” Leonard Wolf in Blaze has a lower opinion of it, pointing out that it omits important details. Be that as it may, this is my analysis of this awful episode.

    Mr. Rittenhouse started the evening with other gunslingers guarding a car lot but unfortunately got separated from the others and some time later found himself in another car lot, which is where his troubles started.

    He was clearly the focus of much wrath from others present, though I’ve seen no speculation as to why Rittenhouse inspired such anger. As he says in one video, his intentions — laudable — were to protect property and, as en EMT, aid the injured. His rifle was for self-defense. So why did so many people all at once turn on him? Did he punch or insult someone? Unlikely: this well-spoken young man doesn’t seem the type. Could it be his white skin? No, his assailants were white as well.

    No, it was surely what he carried: not the EMT kit but the rifle — no grouse-hunting pea-shooter but an AK-47 worthy of an Hawaii-5-0 episode. It symbolized something that the others reviled, which was someone who had taken it upon himself to keep them in line.

    Then the fateful concatenation of events: a shot fired, Rittenhouse whirls, a man runs forward throwing something at him, Rittenhouse shoots four times, and not at the fellow’s leg. He tries to call someone — a friend, according to reports — and then runs away.

    The next sequences available show Rittenhouse still running, and lot of people are after him. But now it’s different: Rittenhouse has just murdered a man and, to any impartial onlooker, seems to want to put plenty of pavement between himself and the crime. People bravely try to stop this rifle-toting youngster. One woman carrying her handbag runs up behind him and swats him in the head. Rittenhouse would have done well to shout that he was going to turn himself in to the police up the street, but again that massive gun would have hurt his credibility.

    And then the climax. Rittenhouse falls, and from a sitting position shoulders his gun. It is not clear to me that he gets a shot off. But no matter: a pursuer overruns him, knocking him backwards. Another guy — not a pursuer — runs up from behind him and whacks him with his skateboard. Rittenhouse is now lying prone on his back. If it had been me in that position, I would have grabbed the guy’s leg, brought him down, and given back as good as I’d got. But Rittenhouse had his hands full — of an automatic rifle, with his finger on the trigger, the safety off and the bullets already bought and paid for. So he shot the man in the chest.

    Then another fellow comes running up with a handgun, clearly to shoot this dangerous and panicked young man, but he draws too slowly and Rittenhouse puts an admirable shot through his gun arm. The others wisely scatter after this.

    With great satisfaction both Whitney and Quinn note that all three men Rittenhouse shot, two fatally, had criminal records. If they hadn’t — if the third man had been a Marine captain with four tours of Iraq under his belt — this would have tarnished the story. But the three were what they were: dispensable scum whose deaths had no more importance than a fly’s, much like the baddies in, for example, Hawaii 5-0.

    I sympathize with young Rittenhouse. He is obviously a decent guy but with a twisted idea of public responsibility. He can’t possibly be declared innocent, but his youth and the circumstances certainly extenuate his murders. He was clearly as much a victim of that gun he carried as the people he shot, both because it made him a target and because it conferred on him the idea that it was his only defense, rather than his voice, his wits and his fists. Which is a commonality among gun-carriers: skewed judgment. That weighty chunk of steel inevitably brings out the indignation, arrogance, and power in a person. Officer Rusten Sheskey had a right to pull his gun on Jacob Blake, but then he put seven bullets in Blake’s back when one in the foot would have done the trick. There’s the rub.

    Rittenhouse is a perfect example of why guns ought to be banned. Other shots are heard in the background of those videos of him, and I’m sure lots more will be heard in videos to come. Probably someday soon everyone will come to those riots packing a piece and a couple clips for good measure, and then it’ll be just one big jolly free-fire zone, Second Amendment guys on one side and “anarchists and communists” on the other, a final showdown between Right and Left, a video game come true. I’m all looking forward to it — but I live in Spain, where guns are largely banned, the future of the white race is of no concern, and we watch with sadness while America descends into chaos.

    Although a mayor or city council might direct the PD as a whole to allow a so-called “peaceful protest” to occur (despite the absence of any parade permit, etc.), I doubt that even the most commie-infested city govt. would issue a written directive to ignore violent felonies in progress taking place within the officers’ field of vision. To do so would be to open the door for massive civil suits and, in a sane world, Federal DOJ actions for violation of the victims’ civil rights through inaction.

    I agree with your view that individual cops are “captains of their own ship.” There are a lot of things you can make go away with discretion so long as you never let it go over the radio what you’ve got.

    While there might not be a “written directive,” there will be verbal and/or under-the-light-bar discussion, maybe even openly at shift briefing, about what to deal with and when it’s best to deal with it. I’ve worked college football games and dealt with some crazy shit that on other days would have resulted in a lot of paperwork and trips to county. Probably every department has this kind of unspoken, unwritten but understood SOP during large-scale, controlled-chaos events.

    And I think it’s not on paper for the reason you state: to put it in writing would precipitate legislation by people who are unused to the sausage-making that’s contemporary law enforcement. That’s also why Ira Chaleff when discussing Intelligent Disobedience gives examples where folks ask to see their orders in writing when given an order to do something they morally or ethically or legally disagree with. Standing firm on that can cost a person a job, obviously, but it can also get the order rescinded or dropped.

    Your statement” /”Vandalism, arson, assaults taking place within the plain view of officers would seem to demand a response rather than turning a blind eye as one might do for “no harm, no foul” traffic infractions.”…is the exception, rather than the rule.
    The easiest person for a cop to to harass is the honest person during a traffic stop. Very rarely do traffic stops result in difficulties for police officers, the behavior of certain ethnic groups in urban areas being an exception. The infraction is noted and recorded and the traffic ticket is issued without incident. The municipality’s coffers get a boost.
    Traffic ticket “quota systems” exist in just about every police department. Failure to write a (statistical) proper number of traffic tickets usually results in a cop’s superiors wanting to know why…and to be “encouraged” to write more tickets.
    Police on a regular beat KNOW where the criminal activity is taking place and purposely turn a “blind eye” to the criminal activities as the chance of getting into an altercation with armed individuals and groups who are willing to fight back is a distinct possibility.
    The goal of every police officer is to make it to retirement and collect a lucrative pension while starting another career. The police mantra: “To Protect and Serve” rings hollow.
    Investigating and curtailing criminal activity is simply “not worth the effort” as the chance of injury or even death is a possibility.
    Are most cops lazy?
    Yes, they are.
    It is their own self-interest, being “captains of their own ships” (cars) while on duty and the discretion to “look the other way” when observing true criminal activity while harassing honest people for statute “crimes” such as speeding or improper lane changes.
    The “qualified immunity” that cops possess further affects their behavior as “they can do no wrong”. It is a “get out of jail free” card for cops.
    Being trained in israeli military “command and control” tactics is also a problem as “we are all Palestinians now”…

    This video is a definite weakness for him if it gets entered into evidence in court. It would be used to challenge his credibility. His rationale for shooting the BLM rioters is that he had to out of self-defense which, if true, is a perfectly valid justification. But in the World Star Hip Hop video he’s punching a female without anything like sufficient justification to do that.

    If he ends up in jail, it’s the video of him hitting the female that will haunt him, not the shootings. If he had only shot the protestors that might have given him some street cred and he might have been protected by some of the other inmates. I’m just being truthful. I think he was acting in self defense when he shot the “protestors”, but he’s got an achilles heel because of his involvement in the earlier brawl.

    Spain has one of the lowest fertility rates (1.2) in Europe. To rational Spaniards, it is a major concern.

    I have never, ever, in anything I have read spoken by Vox or anyone else, heard anyone mention the future of the white race. I mentioned it once in one of my English classes — I teach adults in companies — and the reaction was laughter. Immigration is a worry because so many refugees wash up on Spanish shores, and there isn’t work for either them or for natives. During the boom of the 2000s, we were flooded by Latins, East Europeans and Africans — with no problem. Everyone welcome. There were jobs for all, Spaniards like few other peoples practice “live and let live.”

    But things have changed. Just before C-virus, half of young people couldn’t find work. Vox is the result of that, and little else. But they turn people off with their homophobism and a few other Trumpish items.

    It is amusing to read your position. Rittenhouse- if that’s who is in that video- defended his sister who had been assaulted first.

    Examine the actions of three adult felons over twice Rittenhouse’s age surrounding him and attacking him on a Kenosha street. I counted 4 men who ran up to Rittenhouse with weapons- one with what appears to me to be a sub-compact Glock in his hand ( Where is the federal weapons charge against this prior felon who publicly stated he was going to kill Rittenhouse? ) Being surrounded by an armed, arsonist mob is not an enviable position. Rittenhouse only had seconds to make decisions to survive and prevail from being beaten and most likely killed.

    If American police are defunded to a measurable extent and forced to lay off thousands of patrol officers and detectives nationwide, already discernable lawlessness will increase. People will fill this power vacuum on their own to secure their property and families from mob destruction. Additionally, local LE departments and county sheriff’s deputies will no longer be able to physically separate those in BLM and their Antifa offshoots from those in the suburbs and outlying rural communities who actually know how to patiently hunt predatory game.

    Spaniards have a very historic identity, so no, they don’t care about “the white race”. I think it’s an advantage, for the “white race” is a really recent way of self-identifying. Europe was ancient Christendom.

    We’ll see what happens to Vox. They’re not homophobic (not that I’d mind, tho), and surprisingly enough have won a couple of seats in Cataluña. It’s harder to smear someone with a presence in Congress and social media, but the left tries. They are, more than the Partido Popular, the future of the conservative movement. They understand also, the importance of holding to Felipe VI as symbol of unity, to avoid some renegotiation of the 1977 Constitution.

    EXPAT QUESTIONS FOR AN EXPAT

    [MORE]

    I moved overseas in 2000 as a young man and things seemed to go downhill when Bush was elected. Why?

    Spain is a lovely country. Why are former Spanish colonies so bad?

    In Europe, within a single country living standards are relatively uniform. Why in America are rural areas nearly Third World in their poverty as well as inner-cities? There are no blacks in rural areas, so why are some of them so poor?

    Why are problem groups in Europe like Gypsies or Albanians or Pakistanis not a problem in the US? Nobody fears walking past a Gypsy in the US. Jim Belushi and other Albanians are not keeping Chicago in terror. Pakistanis are not grooming American white girls and a Pakistani pimp-rolling into the Greyhound for runaways would be laughed at. Why is it different in Europe?

    Why is there less rural-urban tension in Europe? There are hiccups of course. But Europe does not have the urban-rural antipathy of the US.

    Also, why are most American expats more likely to be from the Northeast or Midwest than from the South or the West Coast? A general statement, of course, but the bulk of American expats are like you and I. Is it because Upper Midwesterners are more centrist? Is it because states like Minnesota or Michigan are so bland? Why are US Southerners, for example, more attached to their communities and roots than someone from Michigan?

    Why are expats more likely to be from the suburbs than from rural backgrounds?

    Why don’t homeless white people clog the streets of Europe? Refugees do. But not ethnic white people. Why does Europe have a better social safety network than the US?

    US soldiers cause problems overseas-even white ones-but civilian expats do not. Why? Why are non-military American expats able to behave themselves overseas but enlisted service personnel-regardless of color-constantly in trouble with civilians?

    Why are most long-term expats likely to be white males from the middle-middle class?

    Bullshit, this is simply not true, unless you are tracing back to the sixties or seventies when there were a couple of hundred thousand young GIs in Germany for example.Today the great majority of American soldiers in Germany are married and stick to their housing areas as much as possible.

    There have been hardly any major crimes committed by GI’s in Germany in decades, and I defy you to find the reporting of any such events in the last twenty or thirty years.

    “Why don’t homeless white people clog the streets of Europe?”

    You can view groups of homeless folks today camping in front of the Bahnhofs of major German cities, so apparently you have not been there in quite a long time.

    Few U.S. soldiers speak German well enough, say, to read a newspaper or to understand a weather forecast read over FM radio, for one thing. For another, they’re disproportionately young, male, and likely to chase the local skirts.

    It is not the duty of U.S. soldiers to speak German, of course, except maybe the officers; but any large group of young male foreigners, present for more than a week or two, not speaking the language, is always going to be unsettling.

    I don’t know why the Germans won’t just kick the U.S. military out. That would be better for both countries.

Practically everyone involved except Rittenhouse and his comrades are to blame for the mess in Kenosha.

I can’t say that he would have been killed, but I have no doubt that he would have been seriously injured by the mob if he had been unarmed.

    And the media overlooks the fact that the people he shot were all attacking him. I saw a news “article” (aka propaganda) where it was mentioned that the second person he killed was holding a skateboard, but they did not mention that he had hit Rittenhouse in the head with it and grabbed for Rittenhouse’s gun right before Rittenhouse shot him. That article also did not question why a 26-year-old man even had a skateboard with him in the middle of a riot (aka “peaceful protest”).

    Sure, but the defense generally shouldn’t exceed what is necessary. The optics of a male punching a female are not good. That’s something a normal guy would only do in case of a genuine threat to life and limb and I fail to see that here. Why didn’t he just attempt to restrain her?

    Not really. I hate them for destabilization of society and social order, not for hitting gurrrls.

    Girls aren’t above hitting, btw, spare the rod, spoil the child, that’s what both east and west can agree on.

    @MrVoid

    Well:
    1. We aren’t sure that it’s Kyle who’s doing the beating.
    2. This “bad optics” isn’t really bad considering his age and the society he lives in (America), and in the end, if he beats 10 or 100 girls, it wouldn’t change that his current action is self-defense.
