On April 22, 2016 Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe by executive order restored the voting rights of 206,000 felons who have served their time and completed other requirements. Also bestowed were the rights to serve on a jury, run for office and serve as a notary public. He framed his action broadly, “If we are going to build a stronger and more equal Virginia, we must break down barriers to participation in civic life for people who return to society seeking a second chance. We must welcome them back and offer the opportunity to build a better life by taking an active role in our democracy. I believe it is time to cast off Virginia’s troubling history of injustice and embrace an honest, clean process for restoring the rights of these men and women.”

Overheated rhetoric aside, Governor McAuliffe’s decree is clearly the oft-used ploy to win elections by enfranchising potential supporters. There is, however, a broader view of the Governor’s decree, and from this perspective his actions are far more consequential than pushing Virginia into the Democratic column. In a nutshell, this franchise expansion is yet one more step in the Left-egalitarian campaign of removing the stigma if not decriminalizing offences disproportionately committed by African Americans.

The Left has long focused on disproportionate black criminality. Until recently, however, the ideological orthodoxy dictated tackling alleged root causes—poverty, inadequate education, racial discrimination, white bigotry and the like. Alas, expensive crusades have come up short and with the “conservative” law and order option politically unacceptable, the new approach is to either decriminalize once illegal behavior or, as with restoring the franchise, remove the stigma put on miscreants. This is the triumph of made-in-the-academy moral relativism and its first cousin, multiculturalism. From this perspective, why should society jail black shoplifters who steal a $100 watches while ignoring white stock traders who pocket millions in dubious market manipulations? Among the academic cognoscenti, all crime is socially constructed and merely reflects power so equal power means eliminating unequal criminalization. .

The decriminalization of crime is a multi-front crusade whose dots are seldom connected. There’s the “ban the box” campaign to forbid employers from asking job applicants about past criminal activity. Crime-related questions could still be asked but only if the applicant survives the initial screening process. Currently, over a hundred municipalities and counties in some 23 state have banned the box and the Obama administration has proposed applying it when hiring federal employees. A close relative are “fair chance employment laws” that currently exist in San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC that require employers to consider the relationship between the crime and work responsibilities, how much time has elapsed since the crime occurred, evidence of rehabilitation and possible mitigating circumstances.

Seven states also require the “fair chance” policy for government contractors and the Obama administration is enlisting some 112 blue chip private firms such as American Airlines, Koch Industries, Google, Starbucks, Facebook and Xerox with 1.5 million employees to follow suit. Almost predictably, Council of Economic Advisors experts have been conscripted to “demonstrate” that incarceration harms the economy so we all would be better off by integrating former criminals into civic life.

Further add the successful movement to downgrade minor offenses disproportionally committed by African Americans. Foremost is the legalization of marijuana or at least tolerating small transactions. Connecticut, for example, like several other states has reduced “simple drug procession” from a felony to a misdemeanor and eliminated mandatory prison sentences. Going one step further, New York City is seriously considering reclassifying such crimes as not paying for public transportation, public drinking, spitting, littering and urination as civil, not criminal violations whose penalty is just paying a fine or perform some community service. Also to be removed from the catalogue of criminal offenses would be various offenses that occur in parks, for example, lingering past closing times or taking up too much space on a park bench (that is, sleeping on the bench).

A similar decriminalization now occurs in many schools thanks to Department of Justice pressure to equalize suspension and expulsion penalties. It matters not that blacks are more likely to violate the rules; just assumed is that misconduct is uniform across all racial/ethnic groups so the upshot is that many blacks enjoy de facto diplomatic immunity from school discipline.

Paralleling these legal changes is a shift in vocabulary as if labels could alter harsh reality. During the 1950s criminally inclined youngsters were “juvenile delinquents” but by the 1980s this label had almost totally been replaced by “youngsters at risk” as if the perpetrators, not the victims, required protection.

But, the march toward linguistically sanitizing criminality has now gone one step further. The Obama administration now speaks of “justice involved youth” and assumes that once they have paid their debt to society, they are just as job-worthy as those never involved in the criminal justice system and thus should not have to overcome “unnecessary barriers to economic opportunity and productivity.” Think about what this language implies—those who have completed their sentences are now psychologically transformed so potential employers reluctant to hire or rent to them are guilty of erecting “unnecessary barriers.”

And the sanitizing continues. The Department of Justice’s office that supports law enforcement nationally just announced that it will bar the word “felon” or “convict” from its website or accept its use in grant applications. The new (and “improved”) words are “person who committed a crime” or “individual who was incarcerated.” Recall the old joke about how shoplifters will now become “non-traditional shoppers.”

ORDER IT NOW

This rhetoric is not just talk. Thanks to the Juvenile Reentry Assistance Program (JRAP) Uncle Sam will assist these “justice involved” youths expunge or seal their youthful criminal records, help them restore suspended privileges such as drivers’ licenses, access to professions baring ex-cons and modifying child support obligations. In other words, the goal is to make former criminals as close as possible (and recall the restoration of the right to vote) to non-criminals. Needless to say, there is no mention of rampant recidivism—within three years of release some two-thirds had been re-arrested with more than half being re-arrested in the first year. By government decree, there can be no life of crime when barriers are removed.

Then there are funds ($1.75 million) to public housing authorities to assist young people whose criminal records currently bar them from public housing. And if this were insufficient, the Department of Veteran Affairs is sponsoring some 120 evens at Bureau of Prison facilities, 350 Veteran Treatment Courts and 1284 local jails for “justice involved” veterans to overcome barriers.

Will this remarkably successful political campaign actually benefit African Americans? Obviously millions of blacks, everyone from newly enfranchised voters to students who escape expulsion to ex-con job applicants, will think so. And it goes without saying that various legal victories will enhance the popularity of black office holders and their allies. Hard to argue against anything, at least superficially, that “reduces crime,” albeit by altering the legal code or employing euphemisms.

Unfortunately, the negative side of the ledger far outweighs the plus side. To bring all of this together, imagine a city where office-seekers appeal to ex-felons, where discipline-by-racial quota schools are mired in violence, juries include ex-felons, drunks and petty drug dealers operate with minimal police interference and businesses are reluctant to hire locals thanks to costly criminal background checks? Such a setting may be a boon to some but for most, regardless of race, this is dystopic and hardly a fantasy—just visit Detroit or Gary, IN or similar black-majority city to witness the consequences of de facto decriminalization. That many of these “helpful” policies are advocated by those miles away and insulated from the forthcoming damage to poor, law-abiding blacks only adds insult injury.

A deeper and unspeakable question exists here regarding what constitutes the appropriate standards of civic life. At least for some, parks with drunks sleeping it off on benches, chaotic schools and all the rest are not really grave problems demanding tough broken windows style law and order. Nor do they mind a voting bloc of ex-cons who might elect one of their own mayor. For others, however, tolerating petty public drug dealing or rampaging “justice involved” teenagers is cause to move away. And, of the utmost importance, outside of strict segregation, it is hard to imagine peaceful co-existence of these opposing visions of civic life. To be blunt, all of this de-criminalization is best understood as a radical egalitarian driven shift of tectonic plates, “a coming apart” of American social life, to use Charles Murray’s book title. Who would have ever predicted the Left pushing America toward a new Jim Crow?

    Doesn’t surprise me. Might as well be surprised that in communist countries some animals are more equal than others. Have you been on a college campus in the last 40-50 years? Multiculturalism, in which they don’t actually believe, implies a certain amount of segregation. Which works so long as responsible groups don’t segregate their money and there are enough people left to run things (which PCers take for granted).

    The end goal is to have us all be exactly the same, subject to impersonal social mechanisms to ensure…something. “Social justice,” I think, whatever that is. Meantime, you can have all sorts of weird sex and identify as a table lamp, or whatever.

    If Jim Crow can help, they’ll use it. They invoke equality often enough that people are convinced it’s their primary motivation, although they obvious don’t believe in it. Or at least not in the foreseeable future.

  5. The Commonwealth of Virginia, the newest swing state, ye Gods, I’ve lived too long. I was raised in Fairfax, Virginia, once a sleepy outlier to Washington DC, 15 miles out. I’m in Boston now, but Virginia was once quite Conservative and ruled by the down-state rural bloc that was bible-beltish in its constitution. Of course today, the good liberal Democrats of Virginia now hold sway because of the enormous population growth in Northern Virginia since 9/11. Further, the import to Fairfax County of the big defense contractors, Mobil Oil and all the big aircraft manufacturers brought in hundreds of thousands of new liberals from California (doubtless they were shocked by the “liberal” dispensing of concealed carry handgun permits, Ha!). Of course, millions of government types were added, too and it was an enormous shift in political fortunes toward Democrats. Exit one Jim Christian to New England as the region became one big smelly, overpopulated traffic-laden hellhole, especially in summertime. You can never really go home again, nor would I.

    Arlington and Alexandria were once the sole moonbat Liberal elements in Virginia. Fairfax County, Loudon and Prince William, Manassas clear on out to Warren and Clark to the West, Fredericksburg, down to Richmond and beyond were all very right-wing Conservative and VERY strict on crime. Virginia used to be quite dependable about putting the worst of the criminals such as Karsi, John Muhammad of DC Sniper fame and their ilk “to sleep” with great dispatch. Now, I’m not so sure and McAuliffe isn’t helping matters any, he being once a Clintonista insider and obviously quite tolerant of Bill and Hillary’s crimes. His term will be up this fall, I believe, so look for Mr. McAuliffe to occupy a prominent seat in a Hillary White House or our esteemed U.S. House or Senate. The joke in Virginia is that when Hillary wins, if you like your McAuliffe, you can keep your McAuliffe.

    I digress, however. After all the directives by several Democrat Governors, forty years of affirmative action and especially with Terry McAuliffe pulling his recent stunts, plus the huge growth of University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, William and Mary and a dozen other liberal warrens of “Higher” education in Virginia, things have changed considerably. Conservatives from Richmond South and West out to Charlottesville and Blacksburg don’t stand a chance anymore. Virginia was considered “Purple” as recently as a few years back and could go either way in a National election, but 75% of the population of Virginia is now as Liberal as Massachusetts. Likely, they will soon do away with easy concealed carry laws, too. While Trump won his primary, I doubt any Republican will ever hold sway there again.

    Local history lesson, but I’d be interested in the stories from residents of other formerly Conservative states that have undergone “Liberalization” phases such as Virginia, for it is these types of new swing states that will produce the winner of the White House this year.

  6. What a wonderful example of straw-manning and bait-‘n-switch!
    We start with a few hundred thousand felons regaining voting rights, move though some small isolated examples of “the dots seldom connected” of minor decriminalisation, stigma removal to “a radical egalitarian driven shift of tectonic plates, “a coming apart” of American social life”. Wow !
    Naturally, no mention is made of such trivial facts as America in both absolute terms and per capita, encarcerates more people than any other country in the world. Who cares about the US having one of the most shabby social safety nets in the world when a WHOLE $1.75 million is to be made available for young people who have been blocked from public housing assistance? It’s just out of control.
    The mind set of Mr
    Weissburg is that social/environmental factors play little or no role in crime. Crime is an expression of inherent factors such as race/DNA/intelligence, even spirituality. Therefore, being inherent, it can never, ever be forgiven, let alone forgotten. Such evil-doers must never be allowed in Canaan, the promised land. For them, they can wander lost in the desert… for ever…
    In fact, Mr Weissburg is merely the mirror opposite of the politically correct on the left. Another ideologue, another extremist, just, on the Right. (Don’t let anyone tell you the Right doesn’t have it’s own “political correctness”)
    Old Testament tub-thumpers like Mr Weissberg are lost in their own spiritually vapid deserts: pity their 5000 year old tribal morality can still find an audience eager for its intellectually lazy, simplistic answers and its toxic social resentments.

  7. You wrote, “And, of the utmost importance, outside of strict segregation, it is hard to imagine peaceful co-existence of these opposing visions of civic life.”

    Almost 20 years ago, I had decided that the problems living with blacks in my community were ruining my chance for a quiet enjoyment of my life. Since then, I have lived in 3 small towns. Make that 3 white, small towns.

    I have been able to walk the streets at all hours without fear of being assaulted or robbed. No flash mobs. No knockout games. No home invasions. No graffiti. No groups of blacks getting their malt liquor on into the wee hours of the morning. Clean streets.

    Imagine that.

    There was a reason that our ancestors practiced segregation besides it worked.

    Police Have No Duty To Protect Individuals

    Before the mid-1800s, American and British citizens – even in large cities – were expected to protect themselves and each other. Indeed, they were legally required to pursue and attempt to apprehend criminals. The notion of a police force in those days was abhorrent in England and America, where liberals viewed it as a form of the dreaded “standing army.”

    Indeed, the common black gang banger is a bargain compared to the vampire class of ” white stock traders,” who use our very expensive and lethal military as mercenary proxies. I repeat my observation that McNamara style comic book manuals on instinct shooting and premium P+ P mm ammo should be scattered by snowplow spreader trucks through out the outlaw areas. The white stock traders who use the psycho drama of street crime as bait and switch to distract stupid taxpayers should receive a few therapeutic ax handle shampoos to help them see the error of their ways; failing that, then hog tied and dropped off in the community of their peers mentioned above. Dealing with crime for fun and profit must be for all or none if it is to be more than low comedy.

    I agree with you that the black crime problem is largely environmental. Modern Britain has shown that whites can just as easily lapse into savagery. At the same time, those environmental factors need to be addressed with a conservative prescription: boys need their fathers, and children need neighborhoods free from violent crime.

  24. This latest leftist idiocy just moves us closer to private citizens retaking the initiative and responsibility for protecting themselves against predators. It will eventually be OPEN SEASON on anyone who even remotely resembles a predator.

    Want security from the 5% of blacks who harbor the 2-allele repeat of the MAO-A gene (i.e., the misnamed “warrior” gene that predisposes someone to low impulse control and high violence)?

    Get a gun, know how to use it, and if confronted by a violent criminal shoot him (or her, females are working toward equal opportunity these days.)

    If the Obama/Castro scheme goes forward, eventually every white, upper-middle-class neighborhood will be forced to go FULL ETHNIC CLEANSING to stop the gangrene that is poisoning their areas.

    Money quote:

    Starting in 2012, the agency sweetened Section 8 voucher payments, and pointed inner-city recipients to the far-flung counties surrounding Dallas. As government-subsidized rentals spread in all areas of the Metroplex (163 ZIP codes vs. 129 ZIP codes), so did crime.

    Now Dallas has one of the highest murder rates in the nation, and recently had to call in state troopers to help police control it. For the first time, violent crime has shifted to the tony bedroom communities north of the city. Three suburbs that have seen the most Section 8 transfers — Frisco, Plano and McKinney — have suffered unprecedented spikes in rapes, assaults and break-ins, including home invasions.

    Although HUD’s “demonstration project” may have improved the lives of some who moved, it’s ended up harming the lives of many of their new neighbors. And now Castro wants to roll it out nationwide. Soon he will give Section 8 recipients money to afford rent wherever they choose — and if they don’t want to move, he’ll make them an offer they can’t refuse.

    Ironically, Hillary’s own hometown of Chappaqua is fighting Section 8 housing because of links to drugs and crime and other problems.

    In some cases, yes. In other cases, simply two different groups of people who share similar appearances.

    http://city-journal.org/html/back-bedlam-14403.html

    Well, the police got the message. In response to the incessant accusations of racism and the heightened hostility in the streets that has followed the Michael Brown shooting, officers have pulled back from making investigatory stops and enforcing low-level offenses in many urban areas. As a result, violent crime in cities with large black populations has shot up—homicides in the largest 50 cities rose nearly 17 percent in 2015. And the Left is once again denouncing the police—this time for not doing enough policing. King now accuses police in Chicago of not “doing their job,” as a result of which “people are dying.” Stops in Chicago are down nearly 90 percent this year through the end of March, compared with the same period in 2015; shootings were up 78 percent and homicides up 62 percent through April 10. Over 100 people were shot in the first ten days of 2016. King scoffs at the suggestion that a new 70-question street-stop form imposed on the CPD by the ACLU is partly responsible for the drop-off in engagement. If American police “refuse to do their jobs [i.e., make stops] when more paperwork is required,” he retorts, “it’s symptomatic of an entirely broken system in need of an overhaul.” This is the same King who as recently as October fumed that “nothing happening in this country appears to be slowing [the police] down.”

    I’m all in favor of separation; let Africans be Africans, live under rules they desire, with police (or not) as they desire, drug laws (or not) as they desire, prisons (or not) as they desire.

    You mentioned “ban the box.”

    I think it’s even worse than you and everyone else who analyzes the politics of ban-the-box on a conventional surface level let on.

    Follow the bouncing ball here:

    The whole thing is based on this fallacious notion that there are lots and lots of people qualified to do jobs except they happen to have felony convictions, so the supposed idea is that if the initial job application doesn’t ask about felony convictions, this means that the applications of felons won’t be immediately thrown into the trash. Then HR/Personnel will call the felon in for a job interview, he will dazzle the interview staff over with his skills, knowledge and prowess, and get hired.

    (Insert laugh tracks here)

    I happen to think that most of the proponents of “ban the box” know that this is bull, and they know that BTB laws, if they come to pass, will not result in many ex-felons finding jobs. If for anything else, all it will do is increase the number of applications per open position, and open positions aren’t easy to come by.

    And that’s the point.

    Once we get to that point, then the other side will unveil the logical end game to this, “ban the box” being a run-up to what has been their real agenda all along: Mandated affirmative action or quotas for businesses to hire ex-felons. Their rhetoric will go like this: “We banned the box but this didn’t result in lots of felons getting jobs, so there must still be some sort of quiet or secret or subconscious discrimination going on, so the only way we can alleviate it is government affirmative action mandates.”

    To review: “Ban the box” is political predication for affirmative action for felons.

As Animalogic points out, though, elements on the right are guilty of mirror image reactionary nostrums.

    One humongous elephant in the room is that Jefferson’s small “r” republican vision of yeoman farmers, artisans and proprietary entrepreneurial merchants no longer obtains in America. Not only is the country primarily urbanized in a massive majority, but it also happens to now be majority SUB-urbanized ~ the happy ever after land where there is no there there. Beetles summed it up with their line about a Liverpool subdivision clear back in the 60’s “Strawberry Fields Forever”. That was the NAME of the burb.

    On a personal basis, i happen to be a returnee to the countryside of my roots and an unabashed homesteader who heats with wood, cooks with wood, pumps walking water and in season utilizes an outhouse ~ all the while doing quite satisfactorily on an income of less than $10k/year while having led a totally debt-free life since a brief automotive loan in 1989. No brag, just facts.

    The above personal information was by way of stating that Americans need to get the toys, infotainment and addictions to jocktivities outta their heads and start making some real strides back to the directions of a combination of independent living as well as true communitarian developments. I see this as particularly critical for urban Blacks.

    Imagine for a moment that an Afro sports hero such as Barry Bonds takes it upon himself to create a small rural revolution in the deep South by buying up a chunk of land, hiring on some former military NCO lifers including drill instructors and maybe even a retired officer or two and then inviting to the afro-village abuilding, a number of young Black families ~ some even of the single parent variety ~ to be co-owners of this truly back to the roots commonwealth.

    Let’s even own with the stereotypes. There would be a nice big firepit in the center of the village where there would be a twice weekly feast and dance party with drumming and strumming going on all night. In season the watermelon patch would provide plenty of slurpies and burpies and the catfish pond and the hog-pen would add to the festivities. Sure, some of those Ho’s invited to the scene would have to learn to use hoes to keep the weeds down in the melon patch and the okra rows and the young burrheads, fresh from the hood would learn from one of those ex military types, one of the hard-ends of the N_____-bopper carved ebony 18″ scepters like the one under the seat of my 97 Grand-Am, which had belonged to an African chief whose duties included one swift whack on the wrist for first time thieves and two harder ones upside the head for second offenders.

    What i’m trying to say is that a lot of Americans ~ most particularly whites with deep rural roots; perhaps a majority of blacks; a huge majority of native Americans and a mass of Meso-American Hispanics ~ simply would be much happier living in land-based villages as per thousands of years of human evolution, rather than in one-size fits all cities and burbs. Call me a radical if you will, but it is a radicalism with deep, commonsense rural roots.

There are very few honest and good cops. And every year cops murder thousands of citizens, many of them unarmed, and of various races. Disarming cops is a step in the right direction.

This isn’t really about crime it’s just the latest attempt to cover up black-brown dysfunction and their inability to build, maintain, or even contribute much to an advanced society, a last ditch defense of indefensible multiculturalism.

    There’s a nastier little bit of racism behind this movement: the idea, rampant among the left and blacks, that blacks are entitled to rob, rape, maim, and murder white people, particularly whites of the lower classes. That’s why they pretend that racist violence against whites basically doesn’t exist. They know it exists on a fairly large scale and they approve of it. Outside the crime of murder it remains to be proven that blacks commit more crime against themselves than others. Decriminalization is an assault on white society, driven by hatred, and if the effects rebound against blacks, well, blacks have always been an expendable weapon in the war on whites. But don’t say the prime victims of policies and beliefs which have roots in a vicious, genocidal hatred of white people are blacks.

    This is among the few rational comments about dealing with a future certain to keep proving that depending on the food, water, shelter and security provided by the factories of the vampire class is stupid. Unfortunately, white folk are as bad as any for their version of “but I never picked cotton.” Just as small farms owned by blacks went from just shy of a million in 1915 to about 85,000 at present, small business of most any sort has been made obsolete by folk afraid of sweat not popped on a hamster wheel at the gymn as well as those who took their business to purveyors of china trash plainly labeled as such. I’m better off than many; being surrounded by Hispanic and south Asian peasants who understand that food does not come from the store and so, respect my food crops and often ask to help grow them. I note that we pay subsidy to corporate agribusiness for food stamps, wic and even sugar(?), but little of the tens of thousands of acres of speculators land near the ghettos that house these former farmers will ever again be available for food production; indeed, it is just as gone as the family farms the NAFTA and the communists etc. stole from them. Again, working folk need to form investment clubs to buy farm land and boycott the vampire class investment funds for joint ventures with the Peoples Liberation Army and Navy.

    The article makes me wonder if records will truly be “expunged” as Weissberg states. If so. then I can envision a scenario where a whole range of statistics — such as on recidivism or those covering outcomes of ex-convicts versus the general population — are muddled. Such a result would be a feature, not a bug, of these policies.

    You can see the headlines now: These “second chance” laws have worked; recidivism is down; ex-convicts are not fired from their jobs at higher rates; etc. Even if records are not really expunged, mechanisms like “ban the box” can make things difficult to analyze.

    At 698 incarcerated persons per 100,000, the United States has the second highest incarceration rate in the entire world. “Communist Cuba” comes in at 510 per 100,000, “Fascist Russia” comes in at 445 per 100,000, and “evil totalitarian Iran” comes in at 290 per 100,000.

    Its not a Black thing–South Africa is at 292 per 100,000, and other African nations have much lower incarceration rates than the US.

    I suspect it has to do with the fact that the US is the biggest per capita consumer of drugs in the world, and US sentencing is generally draconian on drug offenses. Second, the US has a habit of passing federal criminal laws to prove “we care”, even if the laws are stupid, unnecessary and usually duplicate state criminal laws. Much of the time, decisions to bring federal or state prosecutions have nothing to do with actual interstate crime, its just a question of which set of criminal laws will result in defendants getting hammered the worst.

    You have over-federalization, draconian sentencing schemes with downward departures for rats–putting too much discretion in prosecutors, and a system designed not to find truth (or conduct trials) but to force people into plea bargains and into snitching for Uncle for fear of rotting in prison.

    I heartily support a large-scale removal of much of the federal criminal code and leaving law enforcement primarily to the States, and getting rid of “feel-good” felonies based on strict liability.

    I don’t support legalizing drug trafficking, but the reality is that the market will drive drug sales, and locking up dealers and throwing away the key only opens turf for more dealers. It is a waste of time and money to lock people up for 10 years over a few grams of crack. . . and yes, until the White Nationalists get around to deporting them all, they will get out and they need to have some way of making a living and trying to transition to becoming contributing members of society or they won’t. [Most repeat criminals age out at about 35 anyways.]

    BTW the way many folks make it doing long prison sentences is by joining gangs–look at who the Islamists in Brussels are recruiting. Incarceration often is associated with radicalization, so the US criminal justice may be creating a breeding ground for organized crime and terrorists down the road.

    I wonder if Robert Weisberg remembers Rev. Martin Luther King’s famous words: “Let my people go.”

    January 21, 2013 is going to be remembered for three historical events. Barack Obama’s taking oath on Rev. Martin Luther King’s copy of the Bible, federal celebration of King’s birthday – and a new Jewish prayer in honor of Dr. King. The prayer was distributed nationwide to synagogues representing all major Jewish denomination by the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding. The prayer goes as follows:

    “Heavenly God, who desires us to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with You, we thank You for inspiring us with the life and example of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”

    Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Jewish Labor Committee (JLC), reminded American Jewish community that late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., was not only a great supporter of Israel but he never equated Zionism to racism. An opinion two famous African leaders, Bishop Desmond Tutu (South Africa) and Louis Farrakhan (USA).

    Comrade Stuart Appelbaum in an article published in Jewish Journal on January 18, 2013, said: “Dr. King spoke and wrote often about Israel. But toward the end of his life, Dr. King was particularly concerned was with the growing mischaracterization of Zionism as racism (apartheid)”.

    Stuart Appelbaum made the above deduction from a letter Dr. King wrote on September 29, 1967, to then president of JLC, Adolph Held.

    It’s also reported that in 1963, Dr. King in his address at the Conference on the Status of Jews in Soviet Jews, said: “I cannot stand idly by, even though I live in the United States, and even though I happen to be an American Negro, and not be concerned about what happens to my brothers and sisters who happens to be Jews in Soviet Russia,” (reported by ADL website).

    How true are these quotes – can be judged by King’s another famous pro-Zionism document, ‘Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend‘, which according to Tim Wise, an anti-racism Jew – was a hoax and distortion of Dr. King statement. Tim Wise claims that Dr. King never said that “criticism of Zionism is tantamount to antisemitism, and likens those who criticize Jewish nationalism as manifested in Israel, to those who trample the rights of Black”. Wise called Zionists’ claims “Heady stuff, and 100 percent bullshit”.

    dc sunsets-you make perfect sense. May all the PC and rules makers live in the crime ridden areas. These PC elites have said for over 60 years that crime in black neighborhoods is the fault (somehow) of the white man (especially those of European heritage). Yet, when we whites lived in real poverty we didn’t go into other neighborhoods attacking people, stealing, raping. We had strict codes about not committing serious crimes.
    I have never seen these “elites” put themselves in danger anywhere- only us low end whites are allowed to have our neighborhoods destroyed. Only our women are allowed to be raped by the minorities who come into the areas or else attack our girls when they were taking buses or subways to school.
    The liberal elites that run papers like the NY Times and the rest of the liberal NY “intelligentsia” went home every day to nice neighborhoods that were totally safe and often of their own religious persuasion or financial bracket.
    In the 50s and 60s when I was working in a Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, NY neighborhood I learned street smarts and also had the friendship of African Americans only on certain streets. At work in Bed Stuy and then at home in east Brooklyn, NY, I could not stray to the black areas because we were usually jumped (mugged) and if that didn’t happen we were lucky. It seems every encounter began with “man you got some change”.
    On other occasions my father and I were held up at gunpoint. My father was beaten severely on several occasions. We did what these muggers said and they didn’t shoot us. (It is different now).
    I learned a lot about sensing and reacting to danger and it served me well in the Marine Corps and in the rest of my travels . I could sense a bad situation the moment I walked down any street.
    I still cannot walk in those Bed-Stuy neighborhoods. And it is very likely that if you walk in those neighborhoods at night you may well be killed. At least in the 50s and 60s killings did not occur but it is now standard policy in the black neighborhoods.
    The President avoids any discussion of reality. He would never allow his daughters to party in Bed Stuy.
    If I was a cop I too would kick back just as described in this column. The President of the USA criticizes white cops so why try to make bad neighborhoods law abiding. Let people kill each other and steal and at least this way they cannot say the police overreacted. The current President is the master in fostering hatred between races. He does nothing to unite people- narcissistic man that he is.

    I can foresee a time when a person’s genetic code is deemed so predictive that Andrew is legally allowed to smoke weed but Rufus gets 30 years for doing so, simply because the former is genetically determined to be non-dangerous under the influence of THC while the latter’s genetic code renders him uncontrollably violent, akin to a case of temporary rabies, while under pot’s spell.

    The world has been on a leftist/progressive path for centuries, in which time huge masses of literature has been generated for and against it and this process continues apace.

    I have boiled the whole of leftist literature to 5 words: “the underdog is always right”.

    This meme was helpful when it spurred developments like the Magna Carta (England 1215), Habeas Corpus, English Civil War (with distinctly egalitarian factions like the diggers and levellers), Glorious Revolution (all 17th century England), the Representation of the People Acts and so on.

    These and other leftist developments in England and later the broader West released huge masses of the middle class, petit bourgeois and peasants from feudal servitude and educated and empowered them, while their Asian counterparts remained mired in illiterate feudalism. As this process is first seen in England (Magna Carta in 1215, first anti-royal civil war; 1642-1651, with the king beheaded) this is why the industrial revolution first began in England, until then an insignificant island off the Eurasian landmass.

    Yet like all mantras, “underdogism” has also run into diminishing and negative returns. Latter-day leftist moves like gay, transgender and animal rights, mass Islamic migration, cetacean and chimpanzee rights etc target minute, marginal or mixed-effect demographics whose empowerment does not quite strengthen society or even undermines it in various ways.

    In my view, this explains recent Western economic, demographic and military decline.

    If “Ban the Box” succeeds, employers will simply find a work-around. The problem is that such work-arounds, like the college degree requirement, dump a vast resource-consumption deadweight loss on someone…usually the aspiring (and already qualified) applicant.

    Black males are dramatically over-represented among criminals. (See The Color of Crime, 2015 edition.) This means that vast numbers of occupations are forever closed to them (and should be), meaning that proportionally fewer blacks will be employed in lots of endeavors.

    This simply adds to the “disparate impact” our insane ruling cultists use as a hammer to slam people who are simply doing the right thing for themselves.

    “Every white I saw stoned was passive.”

    That you can remember while sober.

    “OTOH, I read all too often of blacks/browns who, while high, were utterly rabid, e.g., raping the man and woman they kidnapped, etc.”

    Really? Generally speaking, blacks high on pot are “rabid”, i.e. more prone to violent episodes, compared to whites. How about offering some substantial scientific evidence here.

    “Maybe the latter are carriers of the two-allele MAO-A gene sequence.”

    You act as if it is definitive, then add the qualifier “maybe”. In other words, you truly have no clue.

    “I can foresee a time when a person’s genetic code is deemed so predictive that Andrew is legally allowed to smoke weed but Rufus gets 30 years for doing so, simply because the former is genetically determined to be non-dangerous under the influence of THC while the latter’s genetic code renders him uncontrollably violent, akin to a case of temporary rabies, while under pot’s spell.”

    We need a new concept.

    Inclugence or inclusive-intelligence.

    For instance, Fat Albert has high inclugence in eating fried chicken and watermelons.

    Inclugence would be like trans-intelligence.

    Today, if a man with penis and testicles says he’s a woman with a pooter, he is a she.
    It’s called transgenderism. And it is a wonderful thing because we can now be what we say we are or what we feel to be, not be defined what biology made us to be. Biology and nature are ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’.
    So, we need to beyond them. We need to embrace social constructs to free ourselves from natural obstructs(or obstructions). Nature is limiting. If you are born human, nature says you are human. Damn nature!!!
    Well, thank Todd that there are social constructs.
    You can socially construct yourself into a dog, cat, antelope, owl, hippo, aardvark, skunk, or gopher.

    We need to embrace social constructs over natural obstructs. Nature forces us to be what we were born to be. If nature made us white, we have to be white. If nature made us black, we have to be black. If nature made us male, we have to be male. If nature made us female, we have to be female. Nature obstructs us from being what we really want to be. Nature takes away our freedom, our dream.

    But by embracing social constructs, we can make ourselves to be whatever. I always wanted to be the smartest person in the world. But nature made me an idiot. But thanks to trans-intelligence identity, I now feel myself to be the greatest genius that ever done lived. Yes, I’m smarter than Aristotle, Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and Yoda.
    Why? I don’t go by natural obstructs. I go by social constructs. I’ve socially constructed myself to be the greatest physicist and mathematician that ever lived.

    My equation R = SC2 bridges quantum mechanics and the other stuff about big matter. It means reality = social construct squared, and aint that the truth?

    When progo-social-scientists dismissed race as a ‘social construct’, they were going about it all wrong. They were using ‘social construct’ pejoratively, as something false, fake, and made-up. What they should have done is denounce race as a natural obstruct. Race is a BIOLOGICAL fact created through evolution that created divergences among human groups. It is why different races look different, feel different, and think different(as some are naturally smarter than others).
    Race as a natural obstruct is very very bad since it imprisons us in what we were born as. It decides identity and intelligence for us than allowing us to choose.

    But if we embrace race as a social construct, then our race can be whatever we want it to be. Born black? You can socially construct yourself as white. Born white? You can socially construct yourself as black. Born yellow? You can socially construct yourself as brown. Born brown? You can socially construct as a Jew. Born Jewish? You can socially construct yourself as an Eskimo. Yes, Eskimos now run Hollywood.
    Steven Spielberg lately declared himself Inuit.

    Same goes for intelligence. If I, an idiot, say I’m a genius, I’m a genius. Why? Because I socially constructed myself as a genius, that’s why.

    Henceforth, ‘social construct’ shall no longer be a pejorative but the most beautiful concept for it allows us to be what we wanna be. If a midget says he’s 7 ft tall, you better believe it.

    I can SC myself into whatever I choose. Notice how all the Alt Right kids are turning themselves in frogs. So, you see, Alt Right isn’t a white nationalist movement. It is a frog nationalist movement. If Alt Right folks say they are frogs, they are frogs.

    In our age of trans-nationalism, trans-sexualism, and trans-racialism, maybe we need trans-legalism and trans-moralism. A crime is a good deed if the criminal feels that what society deems a crime is really a perfect legal and moral act.

    We shouldn’t let society judge what is and isn’t a crime. It should be judged by the criminal. If a criminal says he is not a criminal, then he isn’t. If he says rape is love, it is love. If he says theft is buying, it is buying. He bought it by showing a gun or knife than by paying money.

    Esteemed Dominique:
    It is above my pay grade to discuss the sense of your statements. I strongly suspect that you are one of the strongest and smartest commentators around.
    My suggestion to you to be more accurate with mathematical terminology.
    In particular, you wrote:

    “My equation R = SC2 bridges quantum mechanics and the other stuff about big matter. It means reality = social construct squared”.

    If you wanted to say that “reality = social construct squared”, then you should write R=SC^2 .
    Second, duplicate from one of my previous posts:

    I.f.f.U: On certain occasion, Stalin said about one of his enemies in communist party (particular name does not matter): “Trotsky is not just big negative quantity, but negative in square.”
    I.f.f.U.: If only he said “but negative in cube” !!!

    I strongly suspect, that your SC, i.e. Social Construct, is imaginary quantity. Therefore the square of it is just negative quantity. So, in the style of my previous post, I advise you to use the formula R=SC^4 .
    With fascination by the other contents of your posts (no sarcasm here),
    your I.f.f.U.

    My apologies. I did not in any way intend to insult you.

    I was simply pointing out that all the very true and wacky things you listed are, in my opinion, overarching evidence that we live in a time of “Madness of the Many.”

    We have social madness (belief trumps biology, AKA World War T), political madness (Blank Slate and Magic Dirt, and Immivasion/Open Borders) and economic madness (free-floated FIAT money and a credit bubble that dwarfs all prior asset manias listed in Mackay’s book (Tulipmania, John Law’s Mississippi Scheme and England’s South Sea Bubble) combined, in both duration and amplitude.

    Mackay’s book is absolutely essential reading for anyone stupid enough to think that humanity has changed since those prior mass manias. In fact, this time it’s a perfect storm. Fiat money, more debt than ever in the history of Mankind, Section 8 shuffling of disparate people, and the greatest human wave invasion in history all converging, like speeding locomotives, on the same intersection. It would not surprise me if, ten years from now, nothing of today’s relative calm still exists.

    I maintain that it doesn’t matter how long it takes (and yes, the duration is already decades longer than I had imagined possible), a permanent plateau of economic prosperity cannot be created by floating the world higher by filling an ocean of debt.

    We have experienced the greatest asset price and wealth inflation in recorded history. It is all built on cross-linked debt as collateral in an inverted pyramid rising to near-Earth orbit nowadays. All that debt is nothing but IOU’s. All of its value rests on nothing but the mass psychology of manic trust….and if we look around, the willingness of the herd to trust at this level seems to be drying up.

    Should the credit bubble begin to deflate in earnest, I maintain that All the Fed’s Horses and all the Treasury’s Men will not be able to re-ignite credit growth…and the wealth and money supply will crash in a way that makes Mackay’s prior “events’” denouement look very tame.

    Since it is impossible to consume that which has not YET been produced, all excess consumption fueled by debt represents OVER consumption of today…and this must equal capital consumption. Since capital is what we depend upon to service the future repayments of today’s debt, we must be sailing into a time when debt is suddenly deemed less trustworthy.

    The S will surely Hit The Fan when that reckoning arrives.

    David Ruenzel knew, better than most, about the white privilege that killed him.

    As a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, one of this favorite topics was rooting out racism. And how white racism is permanent. White racism is everywhere. And white racism explains everything.

    This mantra of the Critical Race Theory and the Southern Poverty Law Center applied to all white people because, even if they were not personally cracking the whips, or breaking the skulls, white people benefitted from a racist system that did all that — and a lot more.

    Ruenzel was writing about white privilege for the Southern Poverty Law Center as far back as 1997 — long before it became the rage at college campuses, newsrooms, churches, high schools and even grade schools.

    By the time of his death, Ruenzel had accumulated many of the trappings of the white privilege he exposed: The job. The home. The intact family. And most importantly in his case, white privilege endowed Ruenzel with an expectation of safety in the Oakland neighborhood where last week two black people are suspected of killing him.

    I am on record repeatedly stating that we have established the David Ruenzel Prize, which is a subcategory of the Darwin Awards (although only people who take themselves out of the gene pool before reproducing are eligible for the dual award.)

    I sincerely hope that every pretty young woman like Ms. Pothast takes a moment to imagine how privileged Channon Christian felt while being raped, sodomized, forced to perform fellatio, had bleach poured down her throat, beaten, put in a garbage bag and slowly suffocated, while her boyfriend, Christopher Newsom was sodomized, beaten, and eventually shot in the head.

    Every adult in America knows the name of Rodney King. Who knows Channon Christian?

    If Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom had been black and their killers white, everyone in America would know their names. Because they were white and their killers are black, their fate has been shrouded in a thick silence that has given rise to a host of gruesome rumors. Their story highlights the strange and twisted nature of race relations in America.

    Here is the Hierarchical Paradox. It doesn’t apply to all cases but to many cases, sufficient enough to merit attention.

    The more an environment happens to be competitive and hierarchical, the more its members will espouse egalitarianism. This seems counter-intuitive since people who choose to struggle and mingle in such an environment obviously want to out-compete, win, and reach higher.

    But egalitarianism or politics of compassion becomes a crutch because failure, resentment, insecurity, and vanity are so much a part of a hyper-competitive community. And it’s not just about the losers but about the winners since there are even bigger winners. If you’re a movie actor who makes 1 million a picture, how would you feel in the company of an actor who pulls in 5 million a picture? If you’re a movie director with some hits, how do you feel in the presence of someone who had superduper mega blockbuster hits.

    Or suppose you’re a big music star and having a party. You invite another music star who is much bigger than you. How would you feel? You would suddenly feel small.
    A millionaire is a pipsqueak compared to a billionaire.
    And there will also be others at the party who dream of becoming stars but fear they will never come close. So, all these people want to reach the top and be famous, but they fear they won’t make it. Or, even if they make it, others will have made it even bigger. And even if they make it big, they fear going out of fashion in a year or two.

    If one believes in winning and could win all the time, egalitarianism might not be appealing. But those want to win often lose and feel low compared to the winners. If the world is all about winning and losing, losers just feel like crap. And the lesser-winners feel like crap next to the bigger-winners.
    But with egalitarianism as your ideology, you can comfort yourself that have values and causes apart from wealth, fame, and status.

    Consider the allure of compassion cult in MULHOLLAND DR. Diane Selwyn’s dream is to become a big big star. She is an egomaniac. But things didn’t turn out right. So, in her fantasy, she is a this woman with a big heart and compassion, someone who will choose friendship and loyalty(higher values) over fame and fortune.
    So, the neurosis of envy could be one of the main reasons why so many people in elite industries and institutions opt for egalitarianism as ideology. Failing to get what they really want or feeling belittled by those who do better(or fearing that they will soon fall even if they have high positions), egalitarianism offers them a crutch as a way of disingenuously reminding themselves that they have higher values than mere success and status. So, egalitarianism, in actual practice, is less a goal than an insurance.

    In contrast, in a non-competitive world where everyone remains a ‘loser’, the cult of superiority has great appeal. Since everyone remains a loser and doesn’t get anywhere, there is no one to feel envious about anyone. Since there is less envy, resentment, and insecurity(since everyone remains a loser), everyone in this level-loser-world can dream of making it big and being famous and stuff. Fantasy doesn’t envy another fantasy. Fantasy only envies another fantasy when it becomes reality.

    Joe the Plumber dreams it’s cool to be rich(among other Joe-the-Plumbers), whereas a Hollywood bigshot thinks its noble to be ‘equal’.

  123. I find it fascinating that leftist Social Justice Cultists have such a finely tuned ability to ignore the facts staring at them from within article after article on group differences in behavior (including behaviors that produce wealth, happiness, prosperity, social trust and peace).

    After all Unz.com is wall-to-wall with such reality-based (and thus invisible to the mass minded) information.

    From Derbyshire’s latest:

    Contrast Venezuela with Norway. Then tell me, if you can, that demography is not destiny, that the contrast has nothing to do with the different overall characteristics of Venezuelans and Norwegians; that settling a million Venezuelans in the U.S.A. would have consequences no different from settling a million Norwegians. Really? Really?

    The question of who gets to live in America is a big issue, a colossally huge issue, that will determine the shape of American society as our children and grandchildren will know it. Instead of squabbling over urinals, we should be talking about this nonstop, 24/7.

    Yet in fact it is very nearly a taboo topic. People who do try to talk about it—people like us here at VDARE.com—are sneered at, jeered at, and excluded from the Public Square.

    But no, if I notice that as a school gets more “diverse” the performance of kids like mine goes DOWN, I’m a racist. If I notice that places in America where blacks are a majority of the populace and run the political establishment they are crime-ridden, corruption-saturated clones of Kenya, I’m a racist. If I notice that black males 15-50 commit crimes of violence at rates phenomenally higher than any other subset of the populace, even controlling for socio-economic status, I’m a racist.

    The Excuse Factory. That’s what the Cultish masses inhabit. Jim Jones should have named his “church” the Equals Temple. Heaven knows comments by “Boris” and “Corvinus” reveal them to be to the left of Reverend Jones. Frankly, I just wish they’d drink their own red Kool-Aid and shut up, but I know that’s not going to occur during this antebellum phase.

    When this issue grows large enough (and it will), people like me will no longer be told by our intellectual inferiors to sit down, shut up and think what we’re told…not when the fate of our kids, our grandkids and beyond hangs in the balance.

    I have kids. I have grandkids. Their lives matter to me. They are absolutely superior (IQ’s demonstrably in the 140 range.) Those who think my “clan” will be the draft animal they can whip to pull the cart in which they intend to ride had better think again. It isn’t going to happen.

    Out of curiosity (no attempt of sarcasm), what does the expression
    “IQ’s demonstrably in the 140 range” technically means ?

  125. @RadicalCenter

    Non violent charges. Drug sales to an undercover police officer, class B distribution. Cocaine.

    Sadly, the math will be way over your head.

    Thank you for posting this as it perfectly illustrates the stupidity of people like you. You don’t even need to know any math to know that the argument is wrong:

    The last full report of the NCVS was issued in 1994. From it we learn that blacks committed 1,600,951 violent crimes against whites. In the same year, whites committed 165,345 such offenses against blacks. Despite being only 13 percent of the population, blacks committed more than 90 percent of the violent interracial crime.

    So this math genius thinks that “despite” being 13%, blacks committed 90% of interracial crime? If races committed crimes at equal rates and victims were completely random then blacks would commit 87% of interracial crimes. So why is this genius acting like it’s a surprise?

    Moreover, the NCVS data are problematic. Blacks commit ~50% of interracial murders–far less than one would expect if victims were random and far far far less than one would expect if whites are being targeted.

    we assume that if presented with a convenient choice, both black and white thugs will select white victims over black.

    So if we assume that blacks always target whites, then it turns out the math says they do! I just want to point out again that you posted this link as an example of a smart white supremacist. Wow. The graph with the red and blue lines is the best though, a triumph of stupidity.

    little girl. Female hypocrite

    So someone called you a girl once and it still bothers you? Figures.

    Maybe it’s just poor genetics. Isn’t that what you believe? Oh, so NOW it’s the environment that is causing your kid to fail. Interesting.

    SJW’s always project.

    My kids have IQ’s around 140, have degrees in STEM fields, are employed far better than you (assuming you’re not a 15 year old pimply-faced kid pining for the cheerleader in his math class), are doing things that show up in their employers’ commercials or on their patent applications, and are basically so far ahead of you that you can’t even see their dust.

    If my genes stepped on yours, mine wouldn’t even notice. Ants, and all that.

    Your sophistry is amusing, but we’ve reached my limit in illustrating your paucity of thought. Go live your beliefs. Please. I am.

    What percentage of black american crime would be against residents of Tokyo if crime was completely random?

    Assuming you’re honest at all instead of just a true believer in a weird cult… a dim light should be glowing in your noggin.

    Black Americans don’t live amongst residents of Tokyo so of COURSE you wouldn’t expect them to victimize them in proportion! Likewise blacks don’t generally live among whites in anything like a random mix.

    Given that supposedly “random” crime actually targets neighbors, family, and friends… if blacks manage to victimize people they don’t even live next to or associate with at anything approaching the rate at which they victimize the people they do, that proves whites are absolutely TARGETED by blacks for crime.

    And if you had ever really lived in a predominately black area as a white person you would already know this from lived experience. But of course you’re a regular SJW with the usual fondness for minorities from a very safe distance. And no the two mullato lesbians in your class at Bryn Mawr don’t count for this purpose.

  130. For black crime to exist white crime MUST be evident but we ignore the white crime and pretendi t never happens. Where is the intellectual honesty?
