The worst thing our rulers do to our people is teach them to hate themselves. Public schools teach white children there is something inherently wrong with them. The sin of racism cannot be removed. That “education” is life-long. Whites’ evil is a common theme in films, documentaries, songs, and video games. A white person in this country cannot express pride in his race without taking social, financial, and sometimes even physical risks.

It’s not surprising that some whites are psychologically broken by this. They celebrate their own dispossession, even their own deaths. Perhaps they think they will be rewarded in the Third-World future. Perhaps they hate their racial kinsmen for personal reasons. Perhaps they don’t consider themselves white. Whatever the case, we must believe they are sincere. It’s what they are taught.

The results is that even normal, mainstream, nice white people say shocking things about whites. One was the late Julie Powell. In 2002, she decided to make every dish in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She wrote a blog about it. Salon, now a consistently anti-white website, hosted it.

The blog became so popular it became the basis for the successful film Julie & Julia, a joint biopic of Julie Powell and Julia Child. Critics praised the film, and it was nominated for several awards. Amy Adams played Julie Powell.

The film tells the story of a woman who broke away from an unfulfilling job and reconnected with an important part of European culture. Finding inspiration from our past can lead to higher forms of self-expression, happiness, and creativity.

French President Emmanuel Macron was once accused of saying that there was no such thing as French culture. What he really said was that “there is no such thing as a single French culture” and that there is “culture in France and it is diverse and multiple.” That’s arguably worse, because it reduces France to just a spot of earth, where different groups have “culture.” White advocates know that the French people have a culture, part of a greater European culture, and one noble part of it is their cuisine.

I don’t think Powell would agree with this.

I’m not terribly bothered by this but only because I’m used to it. We’re all used to it. We shouldn’t be. It’s part of the evil that we’re immersed in.

She was not banned of course. She didn’t even lose her verified checkmark, the Twitter seal of approval. Calling for the death of whites carries no social consequences. Just try substituting “Jews,” or “blacks.” If you can still believe in “white privilege,” you’re more creative than I am.

There’s something deeper here at work than scorn against whites. It’s the rot of egalitarianism. Egalitarianism isn’t a noble idea that has bad consequences. It’s a sick idea. Difference, hierarchy, and accomplishment are what justify striving — they justify life. There is greatness because there is inequality.

That applies to cooking. Why bother to learn French cooking? Because it’s better than slop from a gas station.

Humans are equal in only one way: We all die. That’s why we shouldn’t mock the dead. It’s our one bond.

The late Powell evidently didn’t agree. She tweeted this on the day Rush Limbaugh died.

Powell also thought it was good when “anti-vaxxers/maskers” died from COVID-19 and was sad that Justice Brett Kavanaugh recovered.

On President Trump:

Even normal Republicans posed a dire threat to her mental health.

Powell reportedly died of cardiac arrest at the relatively young age of 49. Heart problems in younger people seem to be increasingly common. Despite being “vaccinated” and “boosted,” she also got COVID-19. Obviously, there are some people suggesting that her death came from the vaccines while others claim COVID-19 did it, but she may have died from disease. Her last tweet on her still-active account was about a strange symptom.

Powell’s last book was called Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat and Obsession. NPR reported in its obituary that “[n the book] Powell revealed she had an affair, the pain of loving two men at once, of her fondness for sadomasochism and even a bout of self-punishing sex with a stranger.” Why did she want readers to know about this? Perhaps because narcissism, self-pity, self-righteousness, and racial shame seem to be the default personality of the modern white liberal.

Egalitarianism is a death cult. It’s not even a heroic one that celebrates a meaningful death, like the Christian martyrs or the Nationalist Spanish in the civil war who cried “Viva la Muerte.” Egalitarianism’s death cult is joy when others are torn down. Death comes for everyone, no matter how many boosters you take or how much better you think you are than Trump supporters. She would have celebrated my death, but I do not celebrate hers.

Instead, I pity a woman, who, though successful, was also broken. I am angry at the people who made her that way. If her shade is present in some form, I hope she knows that the white race isn’t going anywhere except to the stars. If you treasure anything produced by Western Civilization, you must be willing to defend the race that made it. Otherwise, you have no past, no future, and no legacy but the coldness of the grave and a Twitter account filled with spite. Our people and culture will live on – and that includes French cooking.

Julie Powell, RIP.

    White women really need to get their shit together.

  3. White women destroyed society.

    They can be forced to believe anything through peer pressure. A lot of men fall for it because they’ll do anything for a sniff of their poontang.

    Islam is right about women (and gays)

    Look at America since women were given the voting franchise roughly 100 years ago.

    Are we better off?

    Allowing women to hold public office and positions of responsibility is what future historians (probably Russian and Chinese) will attribute the fall of America to.

    Men can compromise and admit a mistake. Both of those traits are alien to females.

    Well, at least she died happy, or so I assume – *IF* she actually had the strength of her convictions.
    One less white person on the planet – just like she wanted.

    Perhaps there really is a God in Heaven listing to our prayers.

    I really can see the argument for slaughtering white people in the streets.

    I’m surprised that no one who is talking about this miserable self-hating skank’s death (and her anti-White hatefulness) has brought up the fact that she lived in an idyllic all-White village in Upstate New York–97% White and less than 1% negro.

    This was a sick, disturbed individual who was promoted over the more deserving because of her mental illness. This is what the twisted society of the West has become. I’m sure there was a good, temperate woman out there who also cooked French food and maybe even had a blog, but the Luciferians picked the nut job to become a celebrity. Just as they always pick the politicians with the most skeletons to rise to high office, it’s the same thing with actors, writers or any other celebrities, they want people they can control because of their deficiencies. This slut fits the bill.

  8. She’s only one of millions of women exactly like her. I can’t stand to be in the same room with nut cases like this. She was so miserable that she’s better off dead.
    Btw, who was the dope that engaged in an affair with her, the local Mr. Softee?

  9. I perused some of the obits and articles announcing her death. No mention of her hateful, almost genocidal, remarks. She is never described as “controversial.” They don’t even employ the usual spin and describe how she ran afoul of “far right white supremacists” with her “comments in support of civil rights.” Her deranged bigotry is just swept under the carpet.

    Contrast this with the treatment of Kyrie Irvin.

    And yes, it’s been done to death, but substitute “Jews” for white people in her comments and this sorry specimen would have been “un-personed” long ago.

    My only regret is that she went quickly, with little chance of one of her beloved pets,to whom she bows down and whom she worships,to get his hands on her in a nursing home.

    Good riddance!

    That is a good point. If she spoke out against Jews like that, she would be called a Nazi!

  12. sulu says:

    She thought like a cunt. She wrote like a cunt. Even the picture of her taken from a high angle makes her look like a cunt. Now that she is dead she no doubt smells like a cunt.

    I agree with the other posters here that say women can be persuaded to believe anything. They absolutely can! I know that it’s risky trying to psychoanalyze some one you have never met but I’m willing to bet she was a very unhappy person. A much higher percentage of women are fucked up than men.

    As far as I’m concerned the power of women in society should be severely curtailed. Someone whose hormones are changing on a daily basis can not be relied on to be rational. And there is a lot of variance between women. Some women can go through their 27 day cycle and be relatively normal. And some women go bat shit crazy during their period. Any man much past his teen years has seen it with his own eyes.

    My father, a WWII vet and member of the greatest generation, told me a story concerning women pilots during the war. Despite what Hollywood has tried to maintain no women pilots were ever in combat. But, due to the fact that most men that could fly were pressed into service to fly into battle women were used to fly new planes fresh off the assembly lines to air bases in America. Occasionally one would crash on landing and my father was witness to some of these events. Once, after a W.A.C. had crashed a plane my dad went down to the runway to talk to some of the men that went into the plane and got the woman pilot out. He said the man took him to the cockpit and showed him some blood on the pilot seat. My dad asked if she was hurt and the man said, no. He claimed it was menstrual blood and that almost all crashes occurred when women were on their period. The guy said that they were pretty good pilots when they weren’t on the rag. But when they had their period they couldn’t fly worth a shit.

    I have always remembered this story and I want any plane that I fly in to have a male pilot. My preference is about 40 years old, no glasses, and a bit of grey at the temples. And, just for the record, I am a pilot myself. I have listened to the B.S. that the media spews constantly that women can do anything men can do and then I ask myself. Who should I believe? My father, or some Jewish fuck on tv?

    Well like a famous guy once said, Got to keep the loonies on the path.

    I’ve read plenty of hate-fueled anti-white nonsense in recent years, but this stuff strikes me as more crazy than political. Most of the anti-white activists are dead serious about their plans for us, and they are busy actually making real plans, which are mostly succeeding. Anti-white blacktivists are more motivated by rage and stupidity and hysteria and a childish world-view than actual craziness; this lady just sounds like she’s off her rocker, plain and simple.

    I’d be curious about the timeline: was she posting these rants while she was writing her blog and skillfully executing a quite clever concept? If so, I imagine that some crazy people can compartmentalize, and perform complex tasks competently while another part of them rages on another internal channel. But this stuff sounds like insidious-onset insanity, maybe brought on by sudden fame and fortune. If she started posting this stuff AFTER the movie was made, it would make more sense to me, but I just don’t know the facts.

    But the movie was quite good, so maybe that good deed will earn her a slightly cozier place in Hell.

    Finally! An adult and very insightful comment. It makes me think of the recent Tolkien adaptation, Rings of Power from Amazon. Everyone is wondering about the choice of the two mentally retarded, sick, amateur,  incompetent show-runners/writers and the abject failure of their show.

    Of course the raison they were hired was to ruin the northern european Tolkien Lore (Groucho marx /Trotsky wannabe JJ Abrams being the culprit ) but as said in this comment all the current leaders in the western world are of the same human garbage.

    As for this Powell, I’m very happy that her beloved Hebraic vaccine dispatched her,  I’m tired with the excuse of indoctrination, those vile creatures  always show their true repulsive  nature, indoctrination or not.
    The only différence, in ancien Times ,
    they could not express themselves in this way without serious repercussions.

    Perhaps only better, had her many cats ate her before she had been found.

    The one thing she didn’t see across her street was a Negro.

  17. Dumbo says:

    It’s hard to say if she died from the vaxx, but she had weird symptoms that indicated a deficient immune system. Then death by arrhytmia. It could be the vaxx.

    As for her murderous hate of white people, I don’t think she really believed that. Lots of white women are pretty dumb and just repeat things that they are told to say by the media, to gain popularity points. In Nazi Germany she would be tweeting “Death to Jews” and in the Soviet Union she would be tweeting “Death to Capitalists”, or something like that. We shouldn’t look to much into women’s social media proclamations.

    However, some girls are dumber than others.

    I remember reading about how Julia Child was first told about Powell’s blog by Child’s longtime friend and editor, the legendary Judith Jones. Jones hadn’t actually read the blog at the time, but she was charmed by Powell’s idea when she heard about it, as was Child when Jones mentioned it.

    Then they actually read Powell’s blog, and were pretty much disgusted. Powell’s blog was full of general nastiness, heavy handed political crap, and foul language. Child, who was about 60 years older than Powell, was very much put off by it, as was Jones. Evidently, what Child was most offended by was that Powell didn’t seem sincere in appreciating the food, or wanting to actually learn and grow as a cook, but instead seemed to view the whole cooking thing as kind of a stunt.

    That’s why Julia had nothing to do with Powell’s book and the movie.

    Powell’s second book, Cleaving, was so nasty and off-putting that even the liberal media outlets that championed her first book savaged it with negative reviews–NPR and Huffington Post, to name two.

    This broad had problems, bigly.

    I laugh when I think of how they got cute, perky Amy Adams to play this creep in the film. Looking at pictures of Powell, she looked more like Lena Dunham. Having Adams play her was like having Brad Pitt play Harvey Weinstein in a movie. LOL.

    @The Germ Theory of Disease

    Anti-white blacktivists are more motivated by rage and stupidity and hysteria and a childish world-view than actual craziness

    What’s the difference?

    That’s not to say that the distinction isn’t worth making, and your point is certainly well taken. It’s just that in the end, all of the antiwhite talk sounds crazy, and for a reason. It’s coming from crazy people. But it’s worth pointing out that their craziness isn’t just motivated by race hate. The real motivation is their aggressively anti-reality worldview. Though one could respond to that too with the quesiton, What’s the difference?

    One thing, perhaps the most important thing, that can come from a non-ideological study of cultural history and human behavior (and such study is possible, not to mention beneficial and enjoyable to anyone who undertakes such study) is that when one draws a timeline and examines the behavior within it, it becomes immediately obvious that, of all racial groups, whites have the strongest drive toward reality. That’s why, though one can argue whether or not the West has a superior morality, there’s no question that Western Civilization has a more complicated morality. Hence the need for high culture. A need which is absolute. But more on that in a moment.

    The problem is, that drive toward reality, as well as the need to articulate a more complicated morality, has come mostly from our geniuses. Which is why we have produced more of them than any other group, and in all areas of human activity. That’s why higher education consisted of studying the work of those geniuses in the arts & sciences. You certainly wouldn’t have gone to an institution of higher education to study the “work” of crazy dumbshits. Though that was to come later (and long after the death of the university by those qualified to make such a judgment was already announced).

    That’s why one important source, or two-fold source, if you will, of the very real threat to the survival of whites, and not just whites, comes from
    1. The Revolt of The Masses
    2. The Abandonment of Genius
    The first mass migration that threatened white survival was internal, ie; the revolt of the masses. The other migrations simply flow from that. Ortega’s thesis still stands strong 90+ years later.

    In fact, stronger than ever. It’s stood the test of time. As does Orwell’s 1984, and not just 1984 (as far as books go, that’s a good one, but it wasn’t his best). Both books, by the way, are very much worth reading for those who haven’t, and worth rereading for those who have. To test them simply treat them as theories and press them against the weight of contemporary reality. Something we should all do with just about everything we say or write. And now we’re back to the subject of high culture.

    Because, the way this two-fold threat to human survival manifested itself in our social institutions, which is what holds any culture or civilization together (they don’t work, we don’t work, the culture collapses), is when our teaching-learning institutions actively and aggressively eliminated high culture from higher education (and replaced our masterpieces with the “work” of crazy dumbshits).

    The result, of course, was replacing higher education with political indoctrination (while still retaining the term higher education for marketing purposes and to stroke the ego of those replacing whites by feeding them with the delusion that they were and are actually learning anything; talk about cultural appropriation). And the result of that of course was cultural impoverishment and societal collpase. Just look around.

    By high culture is simply meant high level problem-solving and significant innovation in all areas of human activity. Whites didn’t talk about this before because they were too busy doing it. But by the 19th and 20th century it became more and more obvious that what was implicit needed to made explicit so as to better understand the consequences of a completely new world that whites in effect were creating and building, and more importantly, to properly educate and prepare ourselves and the coming generations to respond more adquately (more adaptively) to the many situational demands emanating from this new world.

    But time was short and the competition was formidable and impressive, for its size more than anything else. In other words, the battle, or war, became one of Quality vs Quantity. The Quality of Western Civilization (the land of whiteness) vs The Quantity of The Revolting Masses.

    It was out of this background that the hostile elite, or Jewish Supremacy Inc. or whatever you want to call it, or them, emerged. As everyone knows, the consequences have been and continue to be immense. But perhaps the most important consequence is that their victory is Pyrrhic.

    That’s why the one bright spot in all of this is that the hostile elite are in fact failing, badly. As if turns out, though you can acquire a civilization through subterfuge, you can ‘t run it that way. Especially when the civilization in question is the most complex and unpredictable civilization in the history of the world (that’s not to say their destruction won’t continue and return, yet again, to the darkest form of destruction there is, mass murder; it certainly seems to be heading in that direction).

    In short, the elite’s behavior is becoming increasingly more maladaptive, not just to the world it is attempting to control, though that’s bad enough, but even to itself. Hence its desperation and hysteria. Hardly the qualities of competent, self-assured, and long-term leadership.

    In any event, when enough people to form a critical mass become aware of a problem a culture crisis inevitably breaks out. And that is the position we are in today. You can be as anti-reality as you want. But sooner or later reality always wins. And it’s about to win big time. At this point a quote from one of our greatest geniuses comes irresistably to mind. The readiness is all.

  20. @American Citizen

    If you haven’t noticed- women’s suffrage is the law in Russia & China.

  21. I’ve long asserted that over 90% of woke nonsense is promulgated by women. Most everyday non-white men are actually pretty chill about this stuff.

  22. @Rich

    This was a sick, disturbed individual who was promoted over the more deserving because of her mental illness. This is what the twisted society of the West has become. I’m sure there was a good, temperate woman out there who also cooked French food and maybe even had a blog, but the Luciferians picked the nut job to become a celebrity.

    Satanists, yes. Even her twatter photo was deliberately chosen to show the demon inside her.

    Possibly no-one brought it up because no-one was surprised.

    More plausibly, as Orwell pointed out, the most obvious facts are the hardest to see.
