Downtown Chicago is full of Trump-loving, ski-masked racists. At least, that’s the assumption made by people who believe the incredible hate crime tale of Jussie Smollett.

Smollett is a gay black man who stars in the popular black television series Empire. He is also a rapper. Smollett claims he was beaten in the early morning on January 29 in Chicago by two white men in ski masks who recognized him as “that faggot Empire nigger.” His two alleged assailants knocked him down, tied a noose they just happened to have with them around his neck, and then poured an unidentified substance onto him. During the alleged assault, Smollett’s attackers proclaimed that downtown Chicago was “MAGA country.”

That’s a curious thing to say, considering Donald Trump only received 12.5% of Chicago’s vote in 2016 and the city is 31.7% non-Hispanic white. That’s not exactly MAGA country demographics. It’s also unlikely that violent Trump supporters would recognize any cast members from Empire and know important details about them.

This alleged hate crime was readily believed by the mainstream media, and Smollett was lionized as a noble victim. Unsurprisingly, this story seemed fishy right from the start. First, it was the contradictory reports that the Chicago Police didn’t know about the “MAGA country” remark. Then came the hunt for video evidence of the attack, which didn’t turn up any footage of the actual assault. The only thing that came from thousands of hours of camera footage on multiple streets that the police reviewed are two suspicious dark shapes walking on the opposite side of the street from Smollett.

Smollett was captured on video for all but sixty seconds. After the sixty seconds where he disappeared into an alley, Smollett reappears with a noose hanging around his neck like a tie. That’s an awfully short amount of time to suffer such a severe attack.

More fishy details have continued to emerge. Smollett’s manager claimed he was on the phone with his client during most of the attack and heard the “MAGA country” remark. That wasn’t initially in the police report, and, most suspiciously of all, Smollett and his manager refused to hand over their phone records to police.

Smollett decided to add another element to his story that reinforced the idea that the whole thing was a fabrication. As he returned to the stage after the supposed attack, Smollett bragged that he “fought the fuck back” against his attackers. That seems impossible considering his story and that he kept a cellphone in his hand throughout the entire assault.

Police provided another odd detail that undermined his account. According to authorities, Smollett was carrying and managed to protect a Subway sandwich throughout the brutal attack, and emerged with the undamaged sub in his hand when he reappeared on the surveillance footage.

To summarize, Smollett was brutally beaten in less than sixty seconds in a diverse, anti-Trump city. His violent, racist attackers knew he starred in a show that is not generally watched by people likely to be Trump supporters, or who would know his sexual orientation. They also somehow believe that their diverse, anti-Trump city is MAGA country. Additionally, in his own words, Smollett fought off his attackers while simultaneously pinned to the ground, talking on his cellphone, and holding onto a Subway sandwich.

Count me as a skeptic.

Police also appear to be skeptical. One local reporter said that his police sourcesthought the whole thing was a hoax. Police are currently requesting the phone records of Smollett and his manager.

Even without the additional details and the changing story from Smollett’s camp, the whole thing seemed unbelievable. America has experienced way too many hate hoaxes recently to fall for such a ridiculous story as this one. And yet we all had to sit through another case of the mainstream media falling for one. Smollett was still able to bask in his noble victimhood, even as his story unravelled. Nearly every outlet faithfully reported his “fought the fuck back” comments without any hint of doubt.

GQ covered his first performance since the alleged assault with this celebratory headline, “Jussie Smollett Is Defiant at His First Performance After a Racist, Homophobic Assault.” There was no “alleged” in the headline, nor any indicators in the article that we should perhaps not absolutely believe Smollett’s story.

Indeed, earlier in the week, GQ had published an article on why everyone should definitely believe that Smollett was a victim of a hate crime: because it confirms the Left-wing narrative on hate in Trump’s America. The writer, Joshua Rivera, was incensed that the alleged crime was being treated as a “possible hate crime” by police rather than as a definite one. Rivera believes these attacks are very common, and argues that “almost all violent extremist crime is committed by right-wing terrorists.” This writer claims that the attack fits into the grand scheme of whiteness: “Whiteness in 21st century America has an endgame, and it is this: to divest itself from the shame of its power, while working to revive the fear it needs in which to thrive.”

Rivera concludes his article with an affirmation of his blind faith that this attack occurred by dismissing the disputed facts of the case:

A still-disputed aspect of the attack on Smollett is a line shouted after his attackers fled the scene: “This is MAGA country.” While its veracity isn’t confirmed, its sentiment needs no fact-check. America’s choice to embrace the blind rage of late-stage whiteness in decline is an explicit longing for this kind of crime, a version of America in which those who do not assimilate to the satisfaction of their white, straight, and Christian betters are subject to the impunity of law enforcement, the scorn of the media and the fury of racist homophobes stalking the streets of your city, who want you to know that they could lynch you if they really wanted to, and maybe get away with it too.

Imagine believing that whites easily get away with hate crimes in 2019 America!

Even those writers who accepted that elements of the case didn’t add up still chose to believe that it happened because it aligned with their preferred narrative. Chicago Tribune columnist Dahleen Glanton, who is black, noted that many parts of the story seemed unbelievable, such as Trump supporters rampaging in liberal Chicago at 2 AM in freezing temperatures. And yet Glanton also urged her readers to believe the case because “[w]hy are we so obsessed with who committed the crime rather than dealing with the fact that such crimes routinely happen across America?” She concluded by saying, “At this point, we should all consider Smollett the victim of a horrible hate crime. And in Chicago, we should stop pretending like horrible things like this could never happen in our city.”

The belief that angry white men are the primary threat to non-whites in Chicago cannot be challenged by common sense or facts. It must be accepted by all.

Ever since Trump was elected, hate hoaxes have proliferated to an all-time high. There was the Muslim girl on the New York City train who claimed she was assaulted because of her hijab. That was bullshit. There were dozens of threats to Jewish community centers that turned out to be the work of an Israeli teenager and a black journalist. American Renaissance maintains an extensive database of hate hoaxes, many of which resemble the Smollett case. Many non-whites have sought to fabricate crimes against themselves to win fame and attack the white majority.

Smollett is a vocal Trump critic who made an entire music video showing his disdain for the President. He also has a career that would benefit immensely from suffering a “homophobic” and “racist” hate crime. He knows what kind of message to send to get the Left and the media on his side, as he concluded his most recent performance with, “Be as black, be as brown, be as gay as the fuck you want to be!” Be anything that sets you apart from the evil, Trump-supporting crowd.

Hate hoaxes meet the Left’s demand for victimhood. Leftists need to believe that Trump’s America is full of violent racists who will attack non-whites at a moment’s notice. If this is widely believed, it makes it easier to call for laws criminalizing hate speech and greater law enforcement attention to “hate groups.” This false notion also satisfies the Left’s persecution mania. Even though Leftists and their sympathizers control nearly every institution in our society and can speak as freely as they want, they still consider themselves to be suffering under an oppressive, white supremacist regime.

Since there are not enough real hate crimes to satisfy this mania, media outlets continue to readily accept any that are staged for them. The Southern Poverty Law Center and others tell them that hate crimes are skyrocketing, so why should they doubt that emboldened white racists would travel to Chicago to attack Jussie Smollett?

It is true that Chicago has witnessed disturbing hate crimes in recent years – against white people. In late 2016, there was the white motorist who was pulled out of his car and beaten by black youths because he looked like a Trump supporter. In January 2017, there was the mentally handicapped white man who was kidnapped and torturedby blacks because of his race. Those cases were largely ignored by the media outlets currently hyperventilating over Smollett’s tall tale. CNN commentator Symone Sanders mocked the motorist’s beating at the time with the statement, “Oh my goodness, poor white people!

Hate crimes against whites are rising in the Trump age, yet they still receive scant attention from the mainstream media. Both of those anti-white assaults in Chicago were caught on camera and were undisputedly motivated by hate. They didn’t conform to the preferred narrative, however, so they were ignored.

When Smollett’s story turns out to be a fantasy, we won’t see any mea culpas from the folks who promoted it or any improvement in the coverage of such bogus claims. It’s just too advantageous to propagate hoaxes for their cause.

    Smollett is a goddamned liar. The Chicago police know he’s a godddamned liar, and so does Rahm. But what incentive do they have to actually act on the knowledge that he’s a goddamned liar? The smart move is to do exactly what their doing: Don’t be hero, support the narrative. It’s the new Police Credo.

    Interesting fact re this: “There were dozens of threats to Jewish community centers that turned out to be the work of an Israeli teenager and a black journalist.”

    This is actually the same black journalist (Juan Thompson) who made up the false narrative that Dylan Roof murdered black people because his girlfriend left him for a black guy. When caught, he defiantly blamed racism for his lies, before moving on to making threats against Jewish centers in an attempt to frame his ex (white) girlfriend, tweeting:

    This alleged hate crime was readily believed by the mainstream media

    “Believed” may not be the best term here. The racial-political attack idea, with all its implausibilities in this shabby little case, was megaphoned and transformed from evidenceless claim to absolute fact by The Media with an easy sleight-of-hand.

    I took to trying to follow this story closely (it has all but disappeared now; only a few marginal commentators pointing out that it was a hoax are left): What I recall is that seemingly every media outlet said things like “the hate crime attack against actor so-and-so” and “Famous Black, gay actor attacked by Trump supporters.” It was never “The alleged attack,” or “Actor claims to have been attacked.” Sloppy journalism? Or…

    police sources thought the whole thing was a hoax

    Here is another part of the implausible story that is a clear signal it is a hoax:

    and then poured an unidentified substance onto him

    It was reported he claimed it was bleach. On the coldest night in years, remember. This from Andrew Aleksi-Lankinen:

    The attackers allegedly tied a noose around Smollett’s neck and poured bleach on him in sub-zero temperatures while he was out getting a sandwich from Subway at 2 a.m. So far, police have been unable to verify any aspect of the attack and other parts of Smollet’s story look less likely to be true. First, household bleach (sodium hypochlorite) freezes at about 18 degrees Fahrenheit so if those two men had been outside with it when it was -10, it would have been impossible to pour. If they had managed to keep it warm somehow, it would have frozen the second they started pouring it.

  11. One can only look with sadness and disbelief at the black and white (or brown and yellow thrown into the mix) divide that so many of us refuse to let go, denying a people an opportunity to build bridges in this country. Better yet, an opportunity for an essential recognition of our humanity —- for better or worse. Before that happens, we will continue to blow away, or postpone indefinitely, the possibilities of meaningful dialogue and coexistence. We have sadly been incapable of transcending the formidable psychological barriers we have erected for ourselves. Before hitting the reply button please take note that I’m not pointing fingers at anyone or any group. I simply see the malaise I describe here as deeply systemic as it is endemic.

  12. Smollett was brutally beaten in less than sixty seconds

    First: cards on table, I think that the ‘victim’ is bullshitting.

    With that said – I take it you’ve never been a participant – as victim, perpetrator, or bystander – of a half-decent “brutal beating”?

    Coz seriously – I can perform one of those in 15 seconds if the other guy is only supposed to get really badly hurt, and 30 seconds if the other guy is supposed to die. And compared to guys I know, I’m a softie and an amateur.

    To rough up a queer black guy and make a couple of stupid-hick threats? 5-10 seconds, tops.

    To dredge up just one period of “less than 60 seconds” from the late ’80s:
    • 1 person was “glassed” (had a beer mug smashed into their face);
    • a woman acconpanying the perp of the “glassing” had her arm broken (by me – she was trying to stab me – it turned out she and he were on PCP and he had been released that day, after 10 years in prison);
    • the perpetrator of the “glassing” was kicked down a flight of (curved, carpeted) stairs (by me);
    • a bystander tried to intervene and was stabbed 8 times by the perp;
    • a second bystander kicked the living fuck out of the perp (as I watched, impressed at the guy’s skills).

    Maybe it was 65 seconds – but I doubt it.

    Your thesis didn’t need the stupid idea that it takes more than 60 seconds to fuck someone up. You over-reached, bro.

    Who cares if it’s true or not?

    Miracles of the Saints, and “Loaves and Fishes” stories stir up the believers, and confirm them in their righteousness. Also serves to promote Smollett to sainthood, which he won’t mind either.

    When Smollett’s story turns out to be a fantasy, we won’t see any mea culpas from the folks who promoted it or any improvement in the coverage of such bogus claims. It’s just too advantageous to propagate hoaxes for their cause.

    In other words, Political Correctness is a religious movement, same as medieval Christianity, Islam or Marxist-Leninism, and it can be just a lethal when it is challenged. Now they just need to pick up some MAGAs somewhere, frame them and have a show trial.

    Forty years of this has already destroyed the unity of United States (and it’s industry and economy) and is on track to convert US society into some sort of Islamic State or Bolshevik Soviet lookalike.

    Now if the author can look into the Co trail jogger who strangled an attacking mountain lion (in a headlock)? That didn’t sound too legit either but it read closer to veracity than Smollett’s statement.

    At this juncture the left will double down, Trump for all his bluster seems impotent. White Americans need to target specific corporate entities (consumer boycotts anonymously) with certain agendas. To allow the ((vermin)) uncontested power in the media academia finance and politics is to invite global calamity. I would call the strategy 1‘block working’ using the buying power of the white demographic to thwart the unrelenting assault on white American culture and values. It must be remembered that the left started this by specifically targeting white America and will continue to double down at every perceived victory.

    1 ‘block working ‘ carries no risk, the deep state may be able to ignore deplorable voters “who fight and die disproportionately in the ((vermin’s)) wars who also serve with utmost honor and distinction”
    2 ‘block working ‘ should also be used ruthlessly against elites who have abrogated any sense of ‘noblesse oblige’ the founding fathers had,for a few sound bytes,mammon, and a vapid appearance on Oprah.

    Yesterday afternoon, a top-of-the-hour SRN radio newscast reported that the Chicago PD would charge the drama queen with filing a false report if circumstances warranted. I was shocked: Prior to that, I had only been seeing updates at The Gateway Pundit.

    Am curious as to how much time local Fox affiliates spent on their newscasts reporting the original story, relative to that spent by local ABC/CBS/NBC affiliates. There is still a whiff of “Empire” promotion by Fox to it all – not in Fox urging the drama queen to fabricate the story, but in Fox’s fanning the resulting flames.

    Lol. Much of what your post describes does not apply to me. In response however, I possess no social engineering expertise to even come close to proffering pragmatic solutions, least of all for such deeply entrenched problems. I will say this for myself though: I refuse to participate in the hate-fest from whatever source it may emanate. I do so as a matter of making a conscious choice with which I happen to be comfortable. I prefer to count on hope than hate. Maybe, just maybe, if there were more of us on both sides of the divide, that may be a start, no matter how modest. It bears stating that this one may last quite a bit longer than our longest and still ongoing war in Afghanistan. Forgive my naivete, but I think this one does go back way before the current hostilities in that country. Way, way back before then. Ciao.

    ‘Your thesis didn’t need the stupid idea that it takes more than 60 seconds to fuck someone up. You over-reached, bro.’

    All of your examples relate to things extraneous to a beating with fists. Of course its possible to seriously maim/kill someone with a glass object or by throwing themdown stairs/from an object. Im pretty sure by beating it means hitting with fists and yes maybe two persons who get the drop on somone can do that but the victim has to go down instantly and be unable to protect thier head. Perfectly possible to do this to someone who is drunk for example.

Whether a member believes it or not they will push the story because it is a good club to use to beat their enemies. To a Leftist, “Truth” is not the objective facts, it is the underlying narrative of how things should be and so a lie that promotes this “Truth” is not really a lie.

  56. To the extent that this sort of narrative emboldens violence-prone blacks to attack people [the latest of course is the 1 year old shot in a parked car containing four others (presumably adults)], it fans both prudent white flight and extremely prudent carrying of concealed firearms.

    2017-07-31: Most Dangerous City: Chicago Tops 400 Homicides, Leading Nation

    Early Friday morning, a 31-year-old man became the 400th person to be killed in Chicago. Within hours of his death, a 27-year-old woman was shot in the head and killed, after which an 18-year-old also died from a similar gunshot wound on Saturday.

    Authorities on Sunday discovered a 20-year-old man dead in a backyard with a gunshot wound to the back. And on Monday, a 21-year-old man died after being shot in the abdomen.

    Yup, someone being lightly noosed up and delicately gunked in 60 seconds while busy holding a sandwich and a conversation at outer space temperatures in a side alley is *well* within the range of possibilites of Chicago.

    Honestly, do you think that Blacks would be able to survive a seige of Detroit a la Sarajevo?  One January week without food, electricity or natural gas would have most of them dead from interpersonal violence or sheer stupidity.  They would burn down their own neighborhoods out of carelessness, run their cars out of gas trying to stay warm and freeze to death walking aimlessly.  They have no reserves of anything; they won’t even keep their gas tanks full because to do so is to invite someone else to siphon their fuel.  Truly a useless race.

    I merely stated the case for repatriation makes itself. You seem to be laboring under the delusion that whites and blacks can still somehow work it out and live in harmony. They can’t. The experiment has failed. Currently the politically and culturally protected and empowered negro (and his supporters) works to eliminate or indenture the white population of the US.

    Joe Biden has condemned it has an example of outright racial violation against a helpless minority at the hands of bigoted, white thugs. Apparently there are or were 22 detectives assigned to the case. I am sure Rahm and Chief Ed are demanding the police relentlessly search for the culprits.
    Maybe the police will found some derrilct from a Red State, wean him off the booze, give him some meth and beat a confession out of him. Case solved, record cleared, statistics tick upward.

    If the cat was a Juvenile then probably was hungry and was not properly trained by mama cat to ONLY hunt critters smaller then himself. I would have offered the hungry cat some of my rations like “Cliff Bars” or beef jerky. The cat would of course follow me home and want some chicken or beef from the frig.

    Critters every once in a while show up in my back yard. Last week it was a rabbit who survived -23 below zero temps for two days. I gave the rabbit some carrots. Which in retrospect was a mistake as the rabbit dropped many, many pellets in the yard causing a cleanup of sorts.

    A cat shows up sometimes and of course my wife has to feed the cat.

    My brother on the other hand shoots all critters that show up in his back yard. He uses a pellet rifle which is capable of very high velocities.

    Oh well to each his own.

    “You could probably buy most of them off fairly cheap. 100k and a carton of Newports is the bait I’ve dangled before. Most negros cost the US taxpayer more than that per year anyway”

    I agree that most negroes cause a lot of problems. But after all it is good for business. Can you imagine if there were few or no negros in the USS of A. Fewer jobs for police, lawyers, correctional officers, Insurance companies, auto repair, doctors, nurses, construction industry etc. etc. etc.

    My point is that the economy of the USS of A ( United Socialist States of America) would tank without Negroes. So yes the Negro is a necessary evil if we are to keep a high level of employment here.

    do you think that Blacks would be able to survive a seige of Detroit

    Some would, and perhaps better than most white liberals when you consider the negroes are just a few generations past their cannibal stage.

    But I’m always amused by the “how could we possibly repatriate 40 million” crowd. Their lack of imagination is remarkable. A preliminary offer to provide comfortable air travel and a stipend to get them resettled back on their Dark Continent. For those who reject the offer, a short siege then park container ships with some food at the ports. Then they go back the way their ancestors came.

    They produce nothing themselves, they’re not smart enough to survive without eating one another without whitey’s benevolence, and their greed for gibs makes them easy to herd. Maybe in another 70,000+ years they’ll have evolved enough to rejoin the rest of our species. Until then, let the Chinese “manage” them.

    Repatriation would allow the US to avoid the inevitable violence that awaits us otherwise. The former seems more moral than the latter.

    Arguing with someone who thinks self-defense is immoral is counterproductive. There are many things that are debatable, defending yourself, your family, and your habitat are not among them. Those who do so are signaling that their genome is defective and Nature has marked them for extinction – better to indulge them than attempt to talk them out of it.

    This was far more true in the past. Today however, the negro services sector of the economy, funded by the white majority, is almost completely staffed by negroes themselves.

    I am just objecting to the feel-good, but illogical suggestions by many posters on many threads @unz to, quote, ‘repatriate’ Blacks to Africa

    There is a large part of the Black population which can be repatriated quickly and cheaply:  criminals.  We can certainly revoke their citizenship and buy them a new one somewhere between Liberia and Ghana for less than a year’s worth of incarceration, and then be rid of them permanently.

    This repatriated population will be disproportionately male, so we can make a similar offer to the females of the Black undertow:  you can live here and stay on Norplant from puberty to menopause or marriage (whichever comes first), or you can take $10,000 and go live with your recolonized thugs on the dark continent and we’ll throw in a converted cargo container for your housing needs.  Given that the average Black in the USA costs the taxpayer no less than $7700/year this would be a HUGE deal for America (meaning Whites).

    That’s the “broken window” theory of economics.  Breaking a window generates economic activity of the glazier, the glass factory, the putty maker, etc.  But it adds zero or negative capital stock, which is the basis of civilization.

    If the African-in-America generates negative capital stock, we’re better off without it… and we are.

    The million blacks in jail would be an easy start. Load them on cargo planes with static line parachutes attached and push them out the back for a LALO descent.

    But how many?  Numbers are of the essence, after all.  Reducing some 600k to 60k would be a game-changer on many levels.

    perhaps better than most white liberals when you consider the negroes are just a few generations past their cannibal stage.

    If they are cannibalizing the White liberals, the mooselimbs and the less-fit of their own, this is all to OUR good.  But think again about January in Detoilet without electricity, without natural gas and without even piped-in water.  There are a hundred ways to die in such conditions and nowhere near enough time for the mentally slow to learn to avoid most of them.  Eat bad food or drink contaminated water, get dysentery and die.  Sit in cold house, get hypothermia and die.  Put charcoal or gas grill in house, die of CO poisoning.  Put generator in house (getting gas WHERE?), ditto.  Get careless with fireplace, set house on fire and lose shelter; die of exposure walking around (not to mention neighbors whose houses are set on fire by the firebrands as the fire department is down as well).

    Being close to African cannibals helps not at all when the enemy is Winter-chan.

    Only intercontinental nuclear arms in the USA pose any threat to others, and they are and will be the best locked-down.  They will be no threat to anyone who doesn’t present a threat.

    when the lid blows here the rest of the world won’t idly just wait to see what happens.

    They will support Team White, because they will never get a cent out of Team Black no matter how much support they throw to it.  Further, anyone who gives support to Team Black is going to be in the crosshairs of those intercontinental nuclear weapons.  I think everyone is going to look at the value of the real estate that Team Black is squatting on and decide that Team Black has outlived its usefulness… which it did at least 50 years ago.

    The bill for America’s debt binge, piled atop exporting our very means of production and importing third world populations by the millions, comes due. The only question is the due date on that bill.

    Having seen the USA of the 1950’s, which happened to be the world’s leading creditor nation, the world’s leading industrial power and a happy united society that gave middle class lifestyles to even to semi-skilled workers, it’s truly strange to see the present economic and social collapse.

    To pull this off, the USA must have really done everything wrong.

    A personal shortlist would be:

    – Thinking that US wealth was a God given right. American Exceptionalism.

    – Neglecting quality education for all Americans.

    – Outsourcing the industries that maintained the skills and employment.

    – Allowing Counter-Culture (i.e. the social destruction of 1950’s Anglo America) to become mainstream.

    – Allowing special interests (particularly Zionist and Globalist – but not only) to corrupt and direct US politics.

    – Engaging in ruinously expensive wars.

    – Allowing an out of control FED to fund the new deficits and wars with massive debt rather than taxes (if every taxpayer had to pay a supplementary $ 25.000 ME War Tax the wars wouldn’t have happened and the Zionists know it).

    – Accepting a Jewish-Zionist run media that promotes all of the previous derangement.

    “The million blacks in jail would be an easy start. Load them on cargo planes with static line parachutes attached and push them out the back for a LALO descent”

    The Reverend Jim Jones had a workable plan. Jones told his Indiana congregation that catered to the Negro that the world would be engulfed by nuclear war, that he would then create a new socialist Eden Earth, and that the Temple had to move to Northern California. The Temple eventually moved to San Francisco and Jones began building Jonestown in South America and it was promoted as a means to create both a “socialist paradise” and a “sanctuary”.

    Eventually 909 inhabitants of Jonestown, 304 of them children, died of apparent cyanide poisoning. Jones was respected by some for setting up a racially mixed church which helped the disadvantaged ⁠— ⁠68% of Jonestown’s residents were black. Okay there were a few stupid White present but look at all the stupid White out there today, followers of Pelosi, Shumer, Clinton Obama.

    We need a few more leaders like Jones. He had a plan that worked.

    If you believe the official narrative. It is more likely that after they killed those US envoys that the US military or agents gassed them. And don’t counter me with any “evidence” of whatever official investigation or statements of surviving witnesses. If WACO had been in some South American jungle they’d have also said that those whackos set themselves on fire, but couldn’t quite hide that the government did it as it was in plain view on US soil.

    This one isn’t true. Nobody who wants to learn in the US is stopped from doing so. You may not get accepted to MIT but there are plenty of avenues in the US. The problem is that certain groups do not value education, not that they don’t have access. This is just used by the left to waste more money on these groups.

    The problem is always the demographics. And democracy too. As whites become a minority, power will pass into the hands of others at the ballot box, as will therefore the control of the military and the nuclear arsenal. This could also happen in Britain and France, two nuclear powers with a declining white population and a growing muslim and black population. And then some whites, a minority by then, will help them administer the system. Not a very pleasant prospect in my view.

    I’m not trying to spread pessimism or defeatism but as you’re Mr. Rational I think you can see it. Now if I could see people taking appropriate action, and policies being enacted that would prevent this from ever happening, then I could be more confident in our future.

    68% of Jonestown’s residents were black

    I must admit this is the first time I’ve heard this racial aspect of the Jonestown story.

    Does this mean 68 in 100 residents were Black Americans who followed Jones a thousand or two miles south to Guyana? Or are we talking also about foreign Blacks? (Guyana local population at 30% Black.)

    Wiki lists this:

    Demographics [of Jim Jones cult members at Jonestown, 1978]

    Black female = 460 (45%) [should be 46%]
    Black male = 231 (23%)
    White female = 138 (13%) [should be 14%]
    White male = 108 (11%)
    [All others including mixed-race = 62 (6%)]

    Supposedly 91% of the Jim Jones cult members in Guyana died that day, with survivors at the scene amounting to 1% of the total in-country Jones followers. A further 8% were elsewhere, not at the compound at all on Kool Aid day.

    So there isn’t much to analyze in terms of racial differences in death rates — those at the compound had a nearly 100% death rate. But this Guyana Jim Jones cult population was itself a subset of the international cult: Did the dead skew more Black or less Black than the overall Jim Jones follower population?

    The problem is always the demographics. And democracy too.

    We can abandon democracy to save America.  America is Americans, not whoever the f*** happens to be within the borders at the moment.

    As whites become a minority, power will pass into the hands of others at the ballot box, as will therefore the control of the military and the nuclear arsenal.

    You’re assuming that numbers confer legitimacy.  I dispute this.  As democracies always collapse into dictatorship, I see no reason that the non-Americans (interlopers or “emancipated”) should be given one shred of authority or even consideration.  As they are the reason for the collapse of the previous arrangement, they should be held liable for it.

    Democracy is a means to an end, specifically good government and the well being of OUR posterity.  If the flood of muds turns it into an instrument of genocide we can and should replace it with something that serves our interests.

    This could also happen in Britain and France

    South Africa destroyed its nuclear arsenal rather than turning it over to the ANC.  Given the object lesson of that action, I would hope that the American forces would turn the nuclear arsenal upon the Africans and other non-Americans (talkin’ ’bout you, New Yawk and Hollyweird) until they were gone, rather than letting them wield it.

    Where are his injuries from this alleged beating? From 2 adult men!

    A lack of substantial injury is a clear indicator that he was not beaten by anybody. The props were necessary to give him the appearance of being a victim of assault because he hadn’t actually been injured.

    False attacks are easily spotted because they are planned by someone intent on appearing to be a victim, not someone intent on committing a crime.
