    From the UC Berkeley Daily Californian: On November 7, 2016, I blogged about illegal alien Juan Prieto's anti-free speech op-ed in the New York Times: NYT: Undocumented Student Denounces Free Speech on Immigration Policy STEVE SAILER • NOVEMBER 7, 2016 • From the New York Times: Even
  • Wasn’t Juan Prieto the same guy who organized a student “wall” to prevent white students from using the main entrance of the campus, forcing them to take alternative routes?

    I am going to assume he isn’t a STEM student.

  • From the top of NYTimes.com ... It would be interesting to know when this kind of Extinctionist rhetoric became normalized in the respectable media. My impression is that there was a big inflection upwards the day after the 2012 election, but I could be wrong.
  • @Lugash
    After 2012 sounds right. The Democrats figured that since Romney didn't push back, they were free to engage in open racial hostility.

    @Unz: The comments aren't showing 'next' articles, only previous ones.

    I have to agree that the open hostility became commonplace after 2012. I recall all the online articles celebrating the “death of the Republican party” and the like after Obama’s victory.

    Cant forget about movies like Django Unchained : “kill white folk and get paid for it”. They straight up advertised that line. That was around the time I just stopped going to theaters. No way I’m paying $10+ to watch a movie with a bunch of loud strangers, anti-white themes or not.

    • Replies: @Escher
    Django Unchained is one of the most repulsive movies I have had the misfortune to watch.
  • I'm thinking of putting together a Best of Steve Sailer book. Any thoughts?
  • OT: Did anyone else notice that the Google doodle for Veterans Day is not as explicitly diverse as the one from 2015? It’s more ambiguous now

    • Replies: @Almost Missouri
    Haha, yeah, I had the same thought, and also immediately wondered if it would be noted in the iSteve comments.

    Also, the small version of the Doodle (that appears as you work the search box) looked downright patriotic.

    I thought it was a fitting re-entry of the Doodle after being "speechless" on the election result.

    I'd like to think it was cause and effect, but the Veteran's Day Doodle was almost certainly commissioned long before the election.

  • The national media pays little attention to Hispanics, except at election time when the thinking appears to be: If there were 55 million Jews in the U.S., we'd totally kick ass. But once again ... From the New York Times: Here's What Happened with the Latino Vote By ROBERTO SURO If you are in shock...
  • @eah
    https://twitter.com/wilfredchan/status/796222427369848833

    This Chan guy works for CNN, race-baits, and has a cat on his Twitter pic. That’s all I need to know.

  • From the NYTimes.com: By the way, perhaps Trump's Treasury Secretary could announce that Andy Jackson is staying on the $20 and Harriet Tubman will replace Hamilton on the $10? From Slate:   And then there's the Google doodle for today, November 9th. Google, apparently, is speechless.
  • Congratulations to Mr. Trump and his crew.

    I never thought I would see the day.

  • From the NYT at 11:15 pm: Keep in mind that while the NYT's model sees a high probability of Trump winning the Electoral College, 538's model is much closer: From the NYT at 10:22 pm EST: Older NYT models below: From the
  • @utu
    Hillary is not coming tonight to the Headquarter. At FOX they are speculating that perhaps she is planning to not to concede.

    Don’t be a sore loser Hillary…

  • The NYT and FiveThirtyEight forecasts have split, with NYT thinking a Trump victory is highly likely, but 538 has gone back to giving Hillary a small lead in the chances of winning. But in case the NYT model turns out to be right ... From iSteve back in February: Harry Baldwin has put together a...
  • @reiner Tor

    Utah, which gives the country a lot of high-SAT home-schooled learners, has Clinton at 21.5%.
     
    And Ecuck McMullin also at 20% or so. No Mormocaust this year.

    Mitt Romney cant be happy that his egg-headed agent didn’t make enough of difference. A distraction just like a certain Utah politician said of Trump after the pussy tape debacle (what a difference that made right?).

  • Pennsylvania!

    Wow. Trump has impressed me. I thought it was going to be a tighter race.

  • Might want to take a look at C-Spans Live Stream Hillary Party.

    The disappointed look on the audience’s face is priceless.

    Also yay Utah. So much for that creep McMullin.

  • @SPMoore8
    Holy Shit, Wisconsin!

    Early-voted for Trump. Feeling pretty confident.

    I wonder how Paul Ryan is feeling right now.

  • From SSRN I pointed out in 2005 that "L&O" producer Dick Wolf had taken author Tom Wolfe's satirical 1987 concept of the Hunt for the Great White Defendant and played it literally for great riches.

    My wife and I have, over the years, watched every sing episode of the referenced series, as well as most of the various CSI shows, and could therefore offer a more thorough analysis. To be sure, we watch these shows at night, typically on the couch with a few drinks, and analyze what we are viewing while we roll our eyes, etc.

    There are two keys to all of these shows. #1 - A dead body in the first five minutes. #2 - the criminal is almost always a wealthy and snotty rich person who the audience will hate and who gets his just deserts. There are numerous variations, including numerous episodes featuring crazy people, including crazy white women, but that's pretty much it. It's not supposed to reflect reality, it's supposed to entertain with a mild criminal riddle/puzzle that needs to be solved, and with bad people getting what they deserve.

    (A number of L&O episodes, in addition, have an ending somewhere up in the air, to make some larger point about abortion, or capital punishment, or TG rights, or what have you.)

    Traits I remember from L&O episodes I have watched:

    For whatever reason, the heroes want to figure out the suspects motive… even though that matters very little in an actual trial.

    If there is an obvious criminal suspect in the beginning, it is mostly likely not them (especially if they are a minority) but somebody who previously only had a minor role in the episode.

    If there is a criminal suspect who happens to be a minority of whatever sort, they will have some sympathetic traits and/or the episode will shift focus on some aspect of society that affects them. By contrast, there is no shortage of white suspects who behaved like the most coldhearted and unlikeable scum of the earth.

    The unrealistic demographics and behavior of the criminals only exacerbated with each passing season. I refuse to watch L&O and its ilk anymore. The CSI shows are just plain ridiculous to anyone with basic understanding of crime scene analysis techniques. I recall one episode were the crew were trying to locate evidence. One guy picked up unmarked evidence and would wave it around for the others to look at it, like a kid who found a golden ticket.

    A Pakistani who lost a son who was fighting for the US government.

    I dislike troop worship as much as anyone else, but it is among the most powerful forces in our society. Pakistani Muslim or not, to the vast majority of Americans, the Khan family experienced a loss that gives them an incredible deal of moral capital.

    Had Trump been smart, he would have responded by gushing effusively about the young Khan's bravery and selflessness, followed by pointing out that the number of American soldiers that have been killed by Muslim American soldiers is higher than the number of Muslim American soldiers killed in combat. He would then have pointed out that the Iraq war was criminal and foolish and that Khan lost his life for less than nothing. Commenting about Mrs. Khan was just stupid. But Trump is apparently incapable of not saying stupid things.

    A smart politician is like a skilled judoka. He works with public sentiment, channelling it to attain his goals. Trump did far more damage to himself than he would have even by remaining silent on the Khan speech

    If I was Trump I would have either completely ignored the Kahns or have invited Mr. Kahn to have a conversation/debate. Along with everything you mentioned, I would ask him in a calm and polite matter:

    Why he is supporting a woman who was for the Iraq War and had a role in various military interventions throughout the Middle East? Why support someone who will escalate the conflict further? Will that not lead to more Muslims dying? More U.S. soldiers dying?

    Why is a fallen U.S. Muslim soldier being glorified by the Democrats while ignoring the various fallen soldiers of other religious beliefs? Why should his death in a war that happened more than 10 years ago affect a complex issue such as immigration policy? What does this have to do with a border wall?

    Does his occupation of being a immigration attorney who gives preference to Muslims influencing his dislike of Trump? Why did Kahn delete his law firm’s web site? Is it because he might have supported Sharia law? Doesn’t that contradict his support of the Constitution?

    Recall that Kahn said this:
    “This is why I showed him (the) Constitution. Had he read that, he would know the status a Gold Star mother holds in this nation.”

    Where is subject of Gold Star parents mentioned within the Constitution? Does he believe that Gold Star parent has the privilege of being exempt from criticism? Trump can add a little stinger by showing off his own Constitution booklet and saying “I can’t find it here. Please show me.”

    Trump can respond to Kahn’s accusations by stating that this is about radical Islamic terrorism and he is trying to save lives. The 9/11 attacks, the Orlando Massacre, the Paris shooting, etc. all these events have forced him to take strong measures. Hillary is not.

    Those are just my thoughts though. He could still do this. Hell, he could ask to meet with Mrs. Kahn and assure her that he meant no disrespect. He can say that he just wanted to hear her side of the story in the convention.

    Trump gave a speech today about this. I didn't see or hear the delivery, but I did read the transcript and on that basis at least the speech was excellent.

    No bluster, bullshit or bragging about how great Donald Trump is. But did hit on important themes, concretely, such as terrorism, immigration, Islam, past wars and future military interventions. Best of all, at least for me, is that he tied them all in a coherent way that people could actually imagine that they're voting for.

    The point is, you are totally allowed to hate on white people - can't wait until all those old white people are dead and no longer in charge. It's a perfectly acceptable sentiment to express. But if you say anything that is the teeny tiniest bit negative about non-whites or express that Western culture is has made greater contributions, then Nelly bar the door - you're a racis'. So it's really not possible to have a "conversation" when one side is free to express its thoughts but the other side is pre-constrained even before they are allowed to open their mouth.

The police used a helicopter to rake the rooftop of the hotel with bullets all night. His body was found riddled with bullets the next morning. There was talk of other shooters, but nothing ever came of it.

    I knew a guy 20-30 years ago who told me that in his Southern City, the police chief had asked members of the local R/C Airplane club if they could design a R/C plane with a video camera that the police could use inn a similar situation, as they were expecting similar attacks all around the country. Before much could be done, he came back and told them to forget about it and not to mention the project to anybody, under threat of making their lives hell.

    Light skin is highly valued among blacks, even if they never say it out aloud. You can see it black male dating trends: if they cant get a white girl, they go for a light skinned brown girl. You rarely, if ever see black men who dating someone lighter skinned than him. For the gals, having light skin makes them more attractive to all races. The media loves to display them as hot hybrids.

    Together they unite to fight against Whites. When left to own devices, mulattos and blacks tend to turn on one another. Jealousy and envy.

    From the excellent Alabama high school teacher essay:

    Blacks are keenly interested in their own racial characteristics. I have learned, for example, that some blacks have “good hair.” Good hair is black parlance for black-white hybrid hair. Apparently, it is less kinky, easier to style, and considered more attractive. Blacks are also proud of light skin. Imagine two black students shouting insults across the room. One is dark but slim; the other light and obese. The dark one begins the exchange: “You fat, Ridario!” Ridario smiles, doesn’t deign to look at his detractor, shakes his head like a wobbling top, and says, “You wish you light skinned.”

Blocking the door still sounds stupid and selfish, yes, but maybe not that stupid. It also seems almost certain that the people banging on the door trying to get out were killed.

    Well, the Orlando shooting will decisively remove the Stanford Rape and the Judge Recall Movement to the back pages. About 50 dead and about 50 injured, that's a terrible tragedy, and also appears to be the worst shooting massacre in US history. I pray for the victims.

    HOWEVER, we live in a real world where tragedies are manipulated for political purposes and also for the satisfaction of morally righteous venting on social media. So while our condolences should be private and reserved, the public expression will be anything but. So I will pause for a moment for those killed.

    ***

    There are a number of ways this could be handled by the media in the coming outrage cycle (such cycles usually last a week or so, as we all know.)

    #1 - The shooting was due to guns, so we have to get rid of all guns.

    #2 - The shooting was due to anti-LGBT prejudice, so we have to focus on our LGBT martyrs. Don't need Mathew Shepard anymore (yes, I know that case was ambiguous).

    #3 - The shooting was due to anti-Latino prejudice (because it was Latin Night at the club), so it's basically Trump's fault.

    #4 - The shooting was due to Islamic extremism, so "invade the world, invite the world" is once again shown to be vacuous, and Trump is right.

    I predict #3, #2, and #1, in that order will be emphasized by MSM. Nobody will stress #4.

    Basically what it will come down to is victimology for the groups the victims happened to represent, and outrage at everyone else. It won't be pleasant for people who are just ordinary folks.

    It is a certainty that it will be blamed on Trump.

    It is a certainty that the only recommendation of "things to do" will involve restrictions on gun ownership.

    Cynics will say that the Florida shooter was only standing his ground.

    In terms of the outrage cycles we are used to, this one is sort of unique since it doesn't involve white guys, black guys, or the police. It's a certainty it will not lead to anti-Muslim blaming.

    God bless.

    I’m currently in Orlando, visiting some relatives. Heard it on the radio. The sheer amount of deaths and wounded is quite shocking. I predict that the left is going to frame this as a gun control issue. This is an awkward case for them since it involves two protected minorities.

    Trump could get some blame by the media and Muslim defenders. It would a very stupid thing to do since they have to bring up the recent “pissing off Muslims makes them do terrorist acts, so don’t insult them or they may attack” argument. It contradicts the “Islam has nothing to do with these attacks” argument (which is also false).

    Something interesting to know, apparently after escaping some of the club goers blocked the emergency exit door they had left from. Probably lead to more deaths. Go to 3:20 in this video.

    "Ivy League economist ethnically profiled, interrogated for doing math on American Airlines flight"

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/rampage/wp/2016/05/07/ivy-league-economist-interrogated-for-doing-math-on-american-airlines-flight/

    On Thursday evening, a 40-year-old man — with dark, curly hair, olive skin and an exotic foreign accent — boarded a plane. It was a regional jet making a short, uneventful hop from Philadelphia to nearby Syracuse.

    Or so dozens of unsuspecting passengers thought.

    The curly-haired man tried to keep to himself, intently if inscrutably scribbling on a notepad he’d brought aboard. His seatmate, a blond-haired, 30-something woman sporting flip-flops and a red tote bag, looked him over. He was wearing navy Diesel jeans and a red Lacoste sweater – a look he would later describe as “simple elegance” – but something about him didn’t seem right to her.

    ...

    She may have felt it her duty to alert the authorities just to be safe. The curly-haired man was, the agent informed him politely, suspected of terrorism.

    The curly-haired man laughed.

    He laughed because those scribbles weren’t Arabic, or another foreign language, or even some special secret terrorist code. They were math.

    Yes, math. A differential equation, to be exact.

    Had the crew or security members perhaps quickly googled this good-natured, bespectacled passenger before waylaying everyone for several hours, they might have learned that he — Guido Menzio — is a young but decorated Ivy League economist. And that he’s best known for his relatively technical work on search theory, which helped earn him a tenured associate professorship at the University of Pennsylvania as well as stints at Princeton and Stanford’s Hoover Institution.

    They might even have discovered that last year he was awarded the prestigious Carlo Alberto Medal, given to the best Italian economist under 40. That’s right: He’s Italian, not Middle Eastern, or whatever heritage usually gets ethnically profiled on flights these days.
     

    So basically Middle Eastern folk aren’t winning many awards in math.

    Honestly, I thought that the story would be about a Muslim man being suspected of terrorism when he was actually doing math equations. Turns out it was not an Arab at all, rather a smart Italian guy with an really unfortunate first name.

    Trump flubbed on the answer and will need to clarify his position.

    http://www.cnn.com/2016/02/26/politics/chris-christie-endorses-donald-trump/

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie offered a surprise endorsement to Donald Trump on Friday, saying there is no one better prepared to lead the country or defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should she become the Democratic nominee.

    “I am proud to be here to endorse Donald Trump for president of the United States,” the New Jersey Republican told reporters at a press conference in Texas. “The best person to beat Hillary Clinton on that stage last night is undoubtedly Donald Trump.”

    Christie is the first of Trump’s former rivals for the Republican nomination to endorse the billionaire presidential candidate, who has now won three out of four primary contests and is increasingly viewed as the most likely candidate to become the GOP nominee. The endorsement gives him an establishment endorsement and once again Trump has stolen the news cycle from his primary opponent Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

    Thanks to trump for destroying Jeb.

    Jeb’s! campaign isn’t just a failure. There have been plenty of underperforming campaigns over the years. No, it’s a spectacular, epic failure. I would almost feel so for him if wasn’t for the fact that he and his fellow neocons weren’t so aggressively obnoxious. He is to the left of every issue, even when compared to Dubya. Dubya at least tried to act as a conservative Texan when elections came. Jeb! literally identifies as Hispanic, openly embraces more immigration, and has all the typical neocon traits that make him so unattractive to sensible voters.

    Jeb! desperately wants to be taken seriously as a presidential nominee but I simply cannot. The moment his campaign started to pander to Hispanics I had lost all respect. I don’t care what anyone says, Heartiste is right. Jeb! should never show off his wife (or his daughter) ever. Shallow? Yes, but still right. As for Jeb! himself well he is about as interesting as a tomato fruit roll-up and has the charisma of a slug. Mitt Romney at least looked a bit like leadership material in a businessman sort of way. Jeb! has nothing going for him.

    Even his merchandise is laughable. Trying to sell people a guacamole bowl that doesn’t even have campaign branding for $75 is just stupid. Anyone who buys that couldn’t even show off how much of a sad loser they are for investing in Jeb! since no one can even tell it apart from a regular one. The pun is also horrendous: “Guacca Bowle”. 0/10 buddy. Don’t even get me started on the shirts.

    I know firsthand that there is little particularly conservative about Hispanics in things that actually matter politically. Trying to outreach Hispanics as a Republican doesn’t do much. Even Rubio isn’t getting that much Latino support. The “Great Hispanic Tidal Wave” isn’t going to be stopped by such pitiful methods. You need a wall or at least a well-guarded border fence Israel-style. Deport the activists too. All the money the establishment threw at him and Jeb! still cant make it. He’s an example of fractal badness. Trump mainly highlighted all the failures of the Jeb! campaign. Even if Trump wasn’t around to destroy him, Jeb! would still be a massive failure.

    It's amazing how promise-of-diversity boosting has become so shrill, desperate, as if white-goy haters like Rothkopf realize their window of opportunity is fast-disappearing. The noble project to flood the evil West with very vibrant, colorfully throwback cultures of Gimmestan is crashing on rough shoals of reality. Let's not forget Rothkopf, a dynamic if somewhat ethnocentric thinker himself, pushed hard for deposing Syria's regime in 2013, only to be undone by an American public finally on to Israel Lobby strategies. Out of obvious commitment to democracy, he counseled then, as sun set on this brainstorm, that bold Presidents of the past knocked will of the people in a cocked hat and did what they pleased.

    Doesn't the gas-bag sound a lot like the "scientific Marxism is inevitability" prophets who ended up in the Tidybowl of history?

    If Rothkopf and other like-minded types were a little more subtle they would actually be accomplishing more of their plans.

Since low-income whites are bereft trendy political influence or even means to avoid their fate, I suppose Mr. Rothkopf and his ilk have them posted for blame and punishment.

    Here's clickbait list of top 100 movie villains of all time:

    http://www.gamesradar.com/100-greatest-movie-villains/

    But it's not a bad list.

    Not all the villains are human (e.g., the shark in Jaws), so the denominator is <100. But I come up with 2.0 Jewish actors:

    Peter Lorre in M
    Daniel Day-Lewis (half Jewish) in There Will Be Blood
    Michael Douglas (half Jewish) in Wall Street

    I'm sure I'm missing some, but whatever it is, it's pretty short list.

    As for Jewish characters, Magneto in the X-Men is a Holocaust survivor, so he may be Jewish. But he's usually played by very non-Jewish looking actors like Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender.

    I'm sure I'm missing others.

    By way of comparison, two or three of the top villains are black, depending upon how you classify Darth Vader. The two obvious ones are Denzel Washington in Training Day and Ving Rhames in Pulp Fiction.

    On whether Magneto is Jewish:

    From Wikipedia

    Magneto was born Max Eisenhardt sometime in the late 1920s to a middle-class German-Jewish family.

    His experience with the Holocaust is his reason for fighting against humanity.

    Is Mark Zuckerberg the villain in The Social Network?

    I guess he’s a villain protagonist or anti-hero.

    By way of comparison, two or three of the top villains are black, depending upon how you classify Darth Vader. The two obvious ones are Denzel Washington in Training Day and Ving Rhames in Pulp Fiction.

    Denzel Washington was a random mugger in Death Wish (1974) who lasted about a minute with Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) before getting shot. Not exactly the most amazing debut role and kind of funny in retrospect.

    Jeff Goldblum was also in Death Wish as one of thugs who kill Paul Kersey’s wife and sexually assault his daughter. I guess he counts as a Jewish villain.

    On a related note I cant really think up of any female Jewish villains.

    As a group, the 207 million white residents in the U.S. population receive $212 billion in benefits. As a group, then, they receive some $1,022 per person in welfare aid.
     
    These are benefits that go the poor, who are disproportionately black and hispanic. Yet non-hispanic whites who are 62% of the population still manage to collect 55% of this.

    And you conveniently neglected to include the many other entitlement benefits doled out by the government such as for unemployment, disability, medicare, medicaid, social security etc which disproportionately benefit whites. Add farm subsidies, veterans benefits etc and it skews even more in favor of whites.

    Many of the benefits you mentioned are generally for the sick, injured, and especially the elderly. There are a lot more older white folks nowadays.

    You think old black and Hispanic people wouldn’t collect benefits at a disproportionate rate?

    You are too hard on these black folks.

    They don't want to win awards given by black folks, they want to win awards given by white folks.

    They are not running to embrace and celebrate their blackness in black awards ceremonies, they want white folks to embrace and celebrate them.

    They need daddy's approval. And at the same time they hate that they need daddy's approval so much. They want white daddy to love them, and at the same time they want to rub daddy's nose in his mess ("Twelve Years a Slave")

    The only healthy black Hollywood type (and he really isn't "Hollywood") is Tyler Perry. He loves his people in all their craziness, laughter and love. His movies celebrate regular everyday black folks. They love him back and come to his movies in droves.

    But the others--the Spike Lees, the Jada Pinkett Smiths--they are desperate for white daddy's approval.

    The reality is that the Oscars are a celebration of white culture and white sensibilities by and for white people who created a white movie industry to tell white stories to white people.

    And the white nation is no more inspired by (or interested in watching) didactic black stories of white sin (Twelve Years) or black stories of black sin (Straight Outta Compton) than Chinese, Koreans, or Japanese are. Those stories are not white (or Chinese, or Korean, or Japanese) stories.

    So you can encourage them to create their own black national movie awards, but it will not solve anything. It does not address their deep psychic need to be loved by white folks.

    Well said. They do crave approval.

    I feel some pity for the people that won the awards. Yes, it’s Hollywood but does anyone here want to deal with people who want to take away your award and give it to someone less deserving? Hopefully the Oscar host won’t make another snide comment about the racial makeup of the Oscar nominees like last years. That was insulting and if I was a winning nominee would have called that fool out after getting my award.

    "Speaking of movies… Sailer, you must have seen some of the 70′s Blaxploitation films like Superfly and Shaft."

    I have never quite understood why these movies - at least why all of them - are called "Blaxploitation" films. Shaft, for example, was directed by a black man, Gordon Parks, and was (presumably) made to speak to a black audience, although it had wider appeal as well. And it was a good movie too, entertaining anyway. It was unrealistic and over-the-top, but no more so than Die Hard or any Bond Movie. Parks had real talent; I wish he had made a few more movies besides the half-dozen or so he directed.

    John Shaft was marketed as being cooler than Bond. Coupled with the over-the-top scenes and the incredibly unsubtle name for the protagonist, it had just enough “Blaxploitation” themes to be considered part of the genre. I am pretty sure several black kids (maybe some whites too) from that era wanted to be John Shaft. Several Blaxploitation films are essentially took older movies, settings, and themes but with majority black actors.

    I do agree that it was an entertaining movie with a good soundtrack though I think Superfly is beats it in over-the-topness.

  • For a 2nd year in a row now, blacks whining about the Oscar nominees makes it clear that affirmative action is a strong force in nearly every situation where blacks can attempt to gain any kind of power, wealth, or influence.

At its height it claimed perhaps 50,000 followers, primarily Jews living in Poland and other parts of Eastern Europe.[1][2][3] Unlike traditional Judaism, which provides a set of detailed guidelines called halakha that are scrupulously followed by observant Jews and regulate many aspects of life,[4] Frank claimed that "all laws and teachings will fall"[5] and following antinomianism asserted that one's most important personal obligation of every person was the transgression of every boundary.

    Far more tepid than the language used to condemn Trump for his Muslim comment:

    http://aclu-co.org/aclu-comment/

    The national chapter hasn't even commented. They're too busy protecting the right to kill fetuses to take time to protect the right of Trump voters to not be murdered.

    Of course he's not being charged.

    Not only do the elites clearly want violence against us, I think they honestly hope that one of us cracks and starts killing in an attempt at preemptive self-defense.

    Look at Dylan Roof: an insane and probably not very bright young man did an irrational thing in response to very legitimate, real problems he perceived. Then the elites used his actions as an excuse to crack down on the Confederate Flag, southern culture and history more broadly, and white American culture and history even more broadly.

    I see a similar thing happening here. They're going to keep pushing and pushing until a Trump supporter feels legitimately afraid for his life. Then he will act in a less-than-fully-rational way, and the response by the elites will be very predictable.

    Trump could use this, maybe gain sympathy points. Here’s an example for one of his speeches:

    Trump: “Former ACLU board member Loring Wirbel called for the killing of anyone who supports me. That man didn’t just call for my assassination. He called for the killing of American people. Men and women… fathers and mothers… sons and daughters. Killing them because they are exercising their right to vote for what they believe in… that is despicable. Shame on the ACLU for giving a weak response. Has America really fallen to this level of madness? I promise that I will do everything I can to keep my supporters safe. Your lives matter!”

    What, then, can we do to fight Islamophobia?

    Unfortunately, there is not much evidence that some of the most obvious-sounding solutions might work. One idea might be to increase cultural integration. This is based on the “contact hypothesis”: If more Americans have Muslim neighbors, they will learn not to harbor irrational hate.

    We did not find support for this in the data — in fact, we found evidence for the opposite. We looked at searches in the 10 counties with the highest Muslim populations in the United States. On average, these counties are about 11 percent Muslim, compared with 0.9 percent of the United States as a whole. We estimate, in these 10 counties, that anti-Muslim search rates are about eight times higher than they are in the rest of the country.

    Abstract:

    Psychologists have demonstrated the value of diversity – particularly diversity of viewpoints – for enhancing creativity, discovery, and problem solving. But one key type of viewpoint diversity is lacking in academic psychology in general and social psychology in particular: political diversity. This article reviews the available evidence and finds support for four claims: (1) Academic psychology once had considerable political diversity, but has lost nearly all of it in the last 50 years. (2) This lack of political diversity can undermine the validity of social psychological science via mechanisms such as the embedding of liberal values into research questions and methods, steering researchers away from important but politically unpalatable research topics, and producing conclusions that mischaracterize liberals and conservatives alike. (3) Increased political diversity would improve social psychological science by reducing the impact of bias mechanisms such as confirmation bias, and by empowering dissenting minorities to improve the quality of the majority’s thinking. (4) The underrepresentation of non-liberals in social psychology is most likely due to a combination of self-selection, hostile climate, and discrimination. We close with recommendations for increasing political diversity in social psychology.

    It is going to take way longer than 20-40 years to make a human clone that lasts longer than most celebrity marriages. Why bother with cloning when you can just import a bunch of Indians and Africans with high birth rates?

    Genetically engineered super people? Enough with the sci-fi. With the rise of automation, it much more practical to use machines for most labor unless you really want a Supergirl waitress or something.

    Well, allowing for a little casual wording in my comment, your position is just silly.

    We invaded and overthrew the Afghanistan government, creating a power-vacuum and a large number of fanatical resistance fighters. What do you expect people to do when foreigners are blowing up their wedding parties with drone missiles and kicking in their doors and shooting people? In 2001, Pakistan was fairly peaceful (except for their long-simmering border-conflict with India) and supported the Taliban until we explicitly told them we'd bomb them into the Stone Age unless they switched sides. As a result they got a large wave of Taliban refugees, followed by our drone strikes, and a great deal of local terrorism as a consequence.

    Isn't it a remarkable coincidence that almost all the Muslim "terrorism" is occurring in those tiny handful of countries America and the West has been attacking for most of the last 15 years?

  • @SPMoore8
    The fact that the same tape was used in both attacks art displays indicates that they are linked in some way. Either some white racists sought to retaliate in a marvelously subtle manner, by using the same tape to besmirch the visages of African American faculty at Harvard law (within a matter of hours of the original vandalism), or else the African American Educational Art Activists had a few strips of black tape left over after covering up the seal to protest the distant connection to slavery and decided to maximize their tape investment.

    The first scenario is ridiculous; and could be easily checked forensically in any case (leaving aside the fact that an online commenter has already let the cat out of the bag and revealed that an AA student put the tape up.) The second scenario is plausible, is confirmed by hearsay, and was, moreover, a PR masterstroke, because it not only created panic but it also drew attention to their original protest (against some founder who owned slaves about 300 years ago), something which most people have never heard about.

    At this point, the original act, or even the perpetrator of the original act, is no longer relevant (compare the Person of Color at Berkeley who wrote some hateful language on a computer screen, presumably for his own consumption, but who got busted by a nosy library monitor, which promptly set the world on fire with hate.) What is relevant are gestures of solidarity and love, and against hatred and oppression. That is all.

    The first scenario is ridiculous; and could be easily checked forensically in any case (leaving aside the fact that an online commenter has already let the cat out of the bag and revealed that an AA student put the tape up.)

    Also the propaganda about migrants "fleeing" the chaos might make sense if the migrants were women and children. But they are 70% male and 50% younger males of infantry fighting age. So the women and children are staying in Syria to fight? While these cowards run north?

    Yeah, that is something that really bugs me about the whole “refugee” crisis. The migrant men that are coming to Europe look and act like the types that would cause mayhem in own countries, never mind Western ones. Why in the world should Europeans provide assistance to 20-35 year old Arabic/African males? I am betting most of them aren’t victims of oppression given the male-dominated societies they live in. They can stay in their own countries. Let the poor women and children stay if they must. I could tolerate that in small groups.

    Thank you for the reference to the Salon piece: truly a piece of work.

    Two quotes to provide some flavor:

    In the United States, the right-wing media and movement conservatives have for decades consistently used eliminationist and other violent rhetoric to describe liberals, progressives and other people with whom they disagree.

     


    Bill O’Reilly even made the absurd claim that Black Lives Matter is akin to the “Nazis.”

    These are implicit threats and overtures to violence as racial authoritarian fascists are a clear and present danger to democracy and freedom. Thus, they must be eliminated by any means necessary.
     
    Also, I like the gender inclusiveness in the reference to "Jim and Jane Crow". Not Sheryl?

    Thanks for those links. The self-centeredness of the African Americans at Mizzou is a marvel.

    I'd like to quote some tweets but most of them are obscene so everyone should check them out on their own. The basic idea is a Turdstika plus some white guy in a pickup truck using the "N" word is as bad as, if not worse, than 150+ dead in various terrorist attacks.

    I mean I am not offended but it's incredibly goofy and stupid. And to think that we are ignoring Mizzou at the expense of Paris because of racism is similarly demented.

So putting an "x" in there neutralizes the gender aspect. So I guess it's supposed to be pronounced "Latinex" and "Chicanex" like a kind of housepaint on the one hand or a kind of cereal on the other. Or in either case possibly a brand name for condoms.

  • The key to reducing Africa’s population growth is lowering the amount of foreign aid to Africa. Around a trillion dollars of foreign aid was given to Africa and yet their problems have only gotten worst over the decades. Dambisa Moyo wrote about it in her book Dead Aid .We have all seen at least one of those “donate to help feed starving children” ads. People from Western nations get a massive guilt trip and donate out of their pockets to futilely help people from these countries. All that money could have been used to help people in Western countries.

    Giving them food is probably the worst thing to do since it allows Africans to feed themselves on the bare minimum and keep having kids. Many of these kids stay alive at the starving point and then more food is given to them as a result. Western intervention lets them multiply. It’s a disastrous cycle.
