California Governor Gavin Newsom is an unlikely ally in the fight against the anti-white critical race theory, but yesterday he shocked and confused his colleagues with a surprise veto of Assembly Bill 331.

AB 331, which passed 62 to 12 in California’s State Assembly, would’ve mandated students in the Golden State’s failing high schools to take a “Critical Ethnic Studies” class about the oppression and discrimination faced by one of four minority groups (African-Americans, “Latinx,” Native Americans and Asian-Americans) at the hands of white supremacists. A special emphasis on forcing white students to take these classes was emphasized in the law’s discussion.

While AB 331 was passed in January 2019, Newsom’s veto has the optical misfortune of coinciding with Donald Trump’s current campaign seeking to put an end to critical race theory in federally funded institutions. The bill’s sponsor, Assemblyman Jose Medina, lashed out at his fellow Democrat, calling the Governor’s move “a failure to push back against the racial rhetoric and bullying of Donald Trump.”

So why did he do it?

The answer lies in Newsom’s donors, who also happen to be members of prominent Jewish ethnic lobbies. For example, the American Jewish Committee responded to news of his decision with a “Bravo.”

Jewish groups protested AB 331 because, while they agreed with the anti-white message, they also resented the lack of an exemption for Jewish students. Under the law, Jews would be considered “white” and not allowed to choose Jewish Studies for their credit.

Roselyn Swig, a billionaire heiress, wrote an op-ed reflecting this sentiment four days ago. In the piece, she urges that the bill be altered.

According to Swig, critical race theory is “crucial to ensure a tradition of tolerance, understanding and respect – three of my core values – for future generations, while advancing justice for marginalized communities.” However, she furiously contested that “[An] initial draft of the educational plan had both excluded Jews and antisemitism education, and included anti-Jewish tropes in lyrics and anti-Israel boycotts.”

Swig concluded her open letter by stating that the “interests of the Jewish community are actually aligned with other ethnic studies groups. We should come together to advance our shared values, both in the classroom and beyond, for years to come.”

The proposed ethnic studies curriculum tried to adapt to these demands, but the end result only enraged Jews further. The final version on Newsom’s desk would’ve taught that Jews were beneficiaries of “white privilege,” which doomed it.

While non-white groups who supported the bill will blame Newsom’s own “white privilege” for its failure, the final decision was made outside of the Governor’s office.

Swig belongs to what California media has dubbed Newsom’s “Faithful Eight” — eight wealthy families who have given the Governor millions of dollars to transform him from mediocre dog catcher to a national figure with future presidential ambitions.

Of the Faithful Eight, the Swig’s are joined by four other elite Jewish dynasties: the Guggenheims, the Marcuses, the Fishers, and the Pritzkers.

While California has earned a reputation for its radical left policies, it also suffers from Progressive Except Palestine syndrome. In 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed one of the most draconian and controversial anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) bills in the country.

The lesson for white privilege peddlers who saw AB 331 as a political lay up is simple: real power always strikes back.

    What about the Irish, the Poles, the Italians, the Germans, the Welsh, the Scots, the Midlanders, the Cockneys, the Spanish, and others? I’m pretty sure every group that ever set foot anywhere, where their crew wasn’t the biggest, faced discrimination. Even the Catholics got some rough treatment as well as the Pale White Mormons and other Christian sects, no matter if they were Anglos. Whitey better get his act together.

  2. anonymous[400] • Disclaimer says:

    What a mess this all is. CRT has been stealthily growing under most white people’s radar until it suddenly emerged center stage. This isn’t the work of blacks who are incapable of creating any such theory that involves anything more abstract beyond the gibs. It’s been promoted by left types who are interested in destroying the US. Newsom and all the rest are just trash besides being incompetent. How many people like Newsom are there in the US anyway? The left has managed to march through our institutions and produce all these traitors to America.

    He may not have been born to a dynasty, but his bloodline is California Gold. He’s no middle-class slob.

  4. It seems that “elites” or “progressives” (jewish or otherwise) simply cannot identify with the sheople they are trying to heard. Yet even a 3rd grader can tell you, “Two wrongs don’t make a right”.

    Attempting to patronize the great European melting pot will NEVER work, though some do try in vain. You attempt to erase our prolific history (though some of you just can’t seem to resist our classical art and culture) and you attempt to lower our self esteem with your cheaply bought guilt and shame tactics. They never work and they never will.

    Some of my ancestors had cities and democracies, technology, art, science and wonders that people study today in awe. They married into a proud warrior people to the North, who blended with Royalty when Kings were still just and benign, and people were joyful, prosperous and free. They married further into the hard working countrymen whose beautiful women were strong and supportive, and we bore the generations that raised young Jefferson, Washington and Franklin.

    We tried to teach you that it is self evident that all men are created equal. It is what they DO with that equal footing that matters. And we have always ever since taught that it is ones DEEDS that are the judge of character, not the color of one’s skin.

    If that is White Supremacy then so be it. Learn it well, for it cannot be extinguished as long as my culture, my heritage and my tribe live and breathe.

    As for your own heritage and culture, please do look back upon it and judge it through this lens. And remember that always it is your DEEDS, not the color of your skin which define you.

    And lastly this. Any man or group who strives to teach self-loathing, guilt or hate of ANY race, religion, group, or creed is guilty of discrimination (of which racism is merely a form) and should be exposed and punished for such a SORDID DEED as to teach one race of children to be hated, shamed and taught to have psychologically damaging low self esteem, as some form of social justice imperative. They should be fined and imprisoned for crimes against humanity.

    Let the real shame be upon those who commit such atrocities.

  5. There’s a painting I saw in the New York met museum of art which commemorated his “buying” of some California tribe’s land for its mineral rights by one of the Rothchilds. Many Jewish plantation and slave owners all over the south and carribean. Judah Benjamin “the brains of the confederacy” was it’s secretary of war. There’s a book The Jewish Confederates by Rosen. Many of those who sailed with Columbus were said to be Jewish. Jews are at least as guilty as other whites for the victimization of nonwhites, if that sort of historical guilt is a legitimate concept, which it’s not.

  6. Cowboy says:

    Fascinating thanks Eric. I predict the end of jewish reign will come by the hands they fed to stir up the mess in the first place. Its going to be fun to watch Frankenstein’s creature destroy its creator.

    The final version on Newsom’s desk would’ve taught that Jews were beneficiaries of “white privilege,” which doomed it.

    They’re beneficiaries of Judeofascist privilege, the most murderous, racist and totalitarian ideological racket in the history of the world. The White factions that were stupid and evil enough to get into bed with them as Marxists or Imperialists (today liberal-neocons) are certainly guilty of racist Judeo privilege (all the way back to the slave trade) but that’s a tiny percentage of Whites.

    Indeed, average Whites are now being scapegoated by this Zionist gang, which includes Newsom and the Jewish oligarchs who have bought him. But they’ve been identified and are now being drilled down upon, which has resulted in the suspension of their centuries long, evil racket.

    That so few Whites will take their own side against these Judeofascist swine goes to show how whipped they were by the World War holocausts of the 20th Century rigged by these murderous fanatics, who promptly turned around and declared themselves “victims” of a “Holocaust.”

    Who is stupid enough to buy this Zionist propaganda? Those battered and broken by the wars they’ve engineered, and those battered and broken by the Zionist rabbis to make them susceptible to brainwashing.

    They use trauma to set up the suckers, including those of their own tribe.

    This is an evil so profound it’s utterly incomprehensible to most human beings, which is why they’ve been so slow to eliminate it.

  8. roonaldo says:

    And a veto override? The state Senate passed this by a vote of 33 to 4, and a veto override requires a 2/3 vote by both the Senate and Assembly in the great state of Call-a-foreigner.

    It should be a slam dunk to override the veto, no? However, it appears the last time a California governor’s veto was overridden was in 1980. One could have expected a massive outcry–looting, riots, group SJW suicide leaps from the Golden Gate Bridge, but nary a whimper was heard. I suppose those who have Newsom by the balls will also keep legislators under control.

    One thing’s for sure, the insanity will contine–recent announcements of potential state slavery reparations, outlawing gasoline powered cars, and handgun restrictions will avert a mass Vegan hunger strike and LGBTQ boycott of alphabet soup in response to the veto.

  9. And where was Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein, the treacherous 87 year old Senator, during all of this?

    Well Goy, she was busy busy busy getting ready for hearings on the SCOTUS nominee, and busy busy busy trying to cover up her chinese tracks.

    She’s not a young jew anymore, don’cha know, and she needs the extra time to slop on two more layers of makeup with her arthritic hands.

  10. While it’s all an interesting hypothesis — and certainly one I’d be open to — almost no actual evidence is offered to support it.

    We have Swig’s open letter. That’s apparently it.

  11. meamjojo says:

    Newsom finally made a good decision! Sakes alive!!

  12. Just too big of an intersectionality train wreck, huh?

  13. Important story. Strong analysis. The pan-Zionist octopus continues to devour everything in its path. It’s a roving super-predator that must be tamed by the strict application of universal laws.

  14. Dr. Charles Fhandrich [AKA "Anon"] says:

    Whitey better get his act together. I agree Rich and did anyone ever tell you that you have a talent for extreme “understatement”….

  15. Wally says:

    “What about the Irish, the Poles, the Italians, the Germans, the Welsh, the Scots, the Midlanders, the Cockneys, the Spanish, and others?”

    – What about the rampant slavery by African tribes who then sold much of their stock to foreign slave traders? Without Africans selling their slaves, black slavery would never have happened.
    African chiefs urged to apologise for slave trade
    Nigerian civil rights group says tribal leaders’ ancestors sold people to slavers and should say sorry
    excerpt: “African chiefs were the ones waging war on each other and capturing their own people and selling them. If anyone should apologise it should be the African chiefs. We still have those traitors here even today.”

    – THAT of course is not included in racist, violence inciting ‘Critical Race Theory’.
    Nor is:
    ‘When Europeans Were Slaves: Research Suggests White Slavery Was Much More Common Than Previously Believed’:
    Nor is:
    Police are more likely to shoot whites, not blacks:
    Study Concludes White Police Officers Are NOT More Likely To Shoot Black Citizens :
    Black Officers More Likely than White Officers to Shoot Suspects:

    This superficially-odd decision by Newsom proves a maxim oft-repeated on Striker’s network TRS:

    “The only people who really understand what’s going on in politics today are Jews and antisemites.”

    If you don’t analyze these questions first from the perspective of “what do Jews want,” Newsom’s decision is one of many cases where Left/Right, Dem/GOP etc… seem blurry and incoherent.

    TRS also recently noted that 14 of the top 25 political donors in 2020 America are Jewish – see for FTN’s coverage (no link up at Striker’s or FTN’s yet).

    These are ugly truths that Americans need to start Noticing. The ooga-booga over antisemtism is intended to make you look away in fear or out of conceit.

    Start with the above, start with Ron’s excellent American Pravda stuff here – but get started Noticing somehow.

  17. Did the right thing for the wrong reason.

  18. @Rich

    Pretty much any group, with a dominant sub group, is going to have a push for everyone to conform to the norms of the dominant subgroup.

    Cliques on a national level. Human nature. It’s how we got organized into something beyond extended family.

    Along the way before social justice was a thing, those individuals, and their family, who couldn’t follow the rules, were banished beyond the pale of settlement or put to death.

    What is being pushed is not mere acceptance of subgroup norms, but tolerating subgroup behavior that runs counter to dominant norms.

    Such as using a deadly weapon to resolve a nonviolent disagreement or exhibiting a lack of respect for the private property or the safety of others.

  19. Dr. Charles Fhandrich [AKA "Dr.C. Fhandrich"] says:

    Of course Newsom did not veto this out of some regret on his part as to how unfairly whites have been treated by people like HIMSELF!!. He’s been a SHILL for advocating against so called “white privilege and already mentioned this at least a hundred times since he’s been governor. Of course a POWERFUL OUTSIDE HAND caused this empty suit democrat to veto the bill. He’s nothing more than the typical leftist moron like Pelosi is, in politics for what it can do for him, his friends, family and loved ones who happen to be white, be damned as far as Mr. Gavin empty suit is concerned.

  20. Dr. Charles Fhandrich [AKA "Dr.C. Fhandrich"] says:

    Of course Newsom did not do this out of some regret as to how unfairly whites have been treated by people like HIMSELF. He’s been a SHILL for advocating against so called “white privilege and already mention this at least a hundred times since he’s been governor. Of course a POWERFUL OUSIDE HAND, caused this empty suit to veto the bill. He’s nothing more than the typical leftist moron like Pelosi, some sort of relative of his is. Any white who votes for these democrats, is shooting themselves in the foot, including setting up their friends family and loved ones for disaster.

    If you support your town, don’t let democrats burn it down.

  22. Mike-SMO says:

    Intersectionality and the myth of POC (People of Color) are difficult to handle out in the open. CRT teaches that it is “racist” to expect accomplishment, effectiveness, reliability or civil behavior from POC. That refers primarily to Black (Afro-Hyphen-Americans)/GhettoKin and insults most other “minorities”. Progressives pushed the POC Trash-wagon too far and got the “normal” minorities insulted. I don’t think that any identifiable group wants to be grouped with the Ghetto Blacks. “Gibs” will only get you so far.

  23. Anon[201] • Disclaimer says:

    The Political Power in California will exert its dominant force to “teach” minorities that it is an important victim.

    I mean, in 2020, how else do you get to be a victim but by asserting domineering political power, through institutional microphones, over those that lack them?

    Either in your favor or in that of your political pawns and proxies.

  24. nymom says:

    Called ‘hoisted on your own petard’…

    These Jewish loony leftists should reap the benefits of having their kids sit through this crap and afterwards get beaten up after class just like ordinary White kids would have…

    Cause guess what, when all is said and done that’s what they are: ordinary white people…
