From the BBC:

Perth city centre ‘It’s ok to be white’ stickers condemned
17 December 2019

Scotland’s deputy first minister has condemned the appearance of stickers bearing the slogan “It’s ok to be white” in Perth city centre.

The stickers were posted on lampposts and drainpipes throughout the city at the weekend.

John Swinney, who is also MSP for Perthshire North, said the “atrocious” stickers had “no place in Perth or any other part of our country.”

… Posting on Twitter, Mr Swinney said: “We must stand together to resist this unacceptable material.” …

One person told the group: “I am certainly worried now for my daughters who are not white but are from Perth.

“It’s sickening and disgusting to know that people think like this.”

    If it’s not OK to be white in Scotland, for God’s sake, it’s not OK to be white anywhere any more… is it?

    Whites are the new kulaks. They must be universally demonized to create a pretext for the nonwhite lumpenproletariat to expropriate their wealth and eventually liquidate them.

    Whites went from masters of the world in 1919, to scum of the Earth in 2019.

    Sad, really.

  5. Whites will live as a minority in the USA. And Western European countries will have large non-White populations (if not majorities). That’s already baked in. The real issue going forward in the mind of many Whites will be protecting their people against forced assimilation/integration with non-White populations.

    Assimilation and integration will be the least of our worries. POCs are in the process of gaining the whip hand and you can be sure they will use it with a vengeance. Decades of anti-white agitprop from the entertainment/propaganda complex will ensure that their hatred of white people remains, uh, white hot.

    This applies even (and especially) to our new migrant neighbors who’ve come from places where they didn’t even have contact with white people in the first place. It doesn’t take them long in the new country to discover that hating on whitey is the gift that keeps on giving. The future isn’t going to be like the past.

    “atrocious” “unacceptable”

    “sickening and disgusting”

    Just imagine people using words like that against POCs. Well, they’re using words now but it’s going to be a lot more than words before long.

    I wonder what motivates a figure like Mr. Swinney.

    Swinney has three white children. He appears to be one of that large class of Western, white-Christian people who would never personally marry/procreate with a Muslim or etc. — i.e., who prefer whites — but who at the same time actively feel the need to “virtue signal” against even innocuous pro-white statements.

    __________

    JOHN SWINNEY

    – born April 1964 in Edinburgh;
    1960s and 1970s: Raised in Edinburgh in nominal Church of Scotland family;
    Aug. 1978: In what he cites as a formative political experience, a 14-year-old John Swinney watches the Commonwealth Games on TV and is angered “at the way in which Scotland had been portrayed by television commentators;”
    – ca. 1979: Joins the Scottish National Party (age 15) [the SNP took a median vote in Scotland of only 15-16% in 1970s and 1980s UK Parliament elections];
    1986: graduates with MA in Politics, University of Edinburgh; and also becomes the national secretary of the Scottish National Party the same year;
    1991: marries Lorna King [born ca. 1968] (div. 1998); two children born, Judith (born ca.1994) and Stuart (born ca.1996);
    1990s: Near the top of the SNP party structure within Scotland;
    1999: Elected to the Scottish Parliament, holding a seat to present (one term in UK Parliament in late 1990s; resigns to focus on Scottish Parliament);
    – Elected leader of the SNP in Sept. 2000, stepping down in Sept. 2004;
    ca. 2000: Apparently converts to Roman Catholicism under influence of new love interest Elizabeth Quigley [born ca.1972], whom he marries in 2003;
    Late 2000s: Emerges as one of Scotland’s most powerful political figures outright (i.e., not just within the SNP party structure), after the SNP’s success in local elections; he maintains this position as of the late 2010s;
    2010: A baby, Matthew, is born to Elizabeth Quigley and John Swinney;
    – In the early 2010s, Swinney is one of the figures who pushes for an independence referendum (held, Sept. 2014; defeated with over 55% voting to stay in the UK); despite its independence-bid loss, the SNP becomes electorally hegemonic in Scotland thereafter;
    2016: Campaigns for ‘Stay’ in Brexit referendum; uses influence to actively undermine Brexit thereafter, including forays near the edge of none-dare-call-it-treason territory (“SNP promises EU students free tuition in Scotland after Brexit,” an initiative originating with Swinney).

    John Swinney with wife Elizabeth and third son, mid 2010s:

  13. According to the numbers, Scotland is 96% white and 2.6% somekinda Asian, with everybody else bringing up the rear:

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/367842/scotland-ethnicity-of-population/

    Most of the immigration has either been Italians in the 50s or Poles in the OOs, most of whom end up with Glaswegian accents and have useful jobs. As a result of this, the Scots have a bizarre image of themselves as totally welcoming non-racists (like the Scandis they yearn to emulate), but they are only able to sustain this illusion because there are almost no violent third-world spongers impinging upon their utopia. If there were, it would be interesting. A certain type of citizen would would deny that there is any problem at all, but maybe women should stay home and watch TV. But Scots being who they are, other citizens might actually beat the f**k out of the interlopers, because territory. Gang warfare in Scotland would definitely involve the indigenous.

    Whoever put up the signs in Perth was a genius. SNP supremo Swinney, who has the intellect and personality of a pipe cleaner, is now a nationalist politician telling the actual population of Scotland that being white is dodgy. Presumably it’s Not OK, or he wouldn’t have noticed this. So, what next? You want to replace the population of Scotland with the vibrant, which is presumably why you want to burst the shackles of Westminster in order to chain yourself to the rusty radiator that is Brussels, at which point you become a target for ‘refugee’ resettlement. Yay independence. I really hope someone drives it home that the SNP are nothing more than globalist shills who will absolutely sell out their fellow countrymen if someone gives them a stool at the UN, allowing them to ‘punch above their weight’, which is what really what nationalist Jocks want. The interests of their country are a distant second place.

    I agree.

    It’s worth reflecting, anyway, that Swinney is no “third stringer” but one of the foremost political figures in Scotland (and if in the 2020s or 2030s, it comes to pass that Scotland is admitted a full member of the UN, a sovereign state equal to Armenia, Brunei, and Canada, there are plausible scenarios whereby this Sweeney ends up head of state, or [more likely] in a position very close thereto, of Scotland, a \$250 billion economy).

    Therefore Swinney has the status to even gently go the other way on the Whether It’s Okay to Be White Question, like by simply asking, What motivates people to use this slogan? This is low-risk and makes him look magnanimous towards all.

    He could also simply have remained silent. It would cost him nothing.

    Even at the very top, they still feel the need to genuflect.

  21. This is also a good time to remember that ScotNats have gone to a lot of trouble to differentiate themselves from those dirty, fascist nationalists in places like Hungary, Germany, and Russia, who are just racist xenophobes who hate diversity. ScotNats are Civic Nationalists, which is inclusive, right? I

    In practice, they are aiming at a form of civic totalism which intrudes into every aspect of one’s individual life; you do not get personal convictions outside a state-approved framework. A reasonable synopsis of the malady is found here:

    https://www.spectator.com.au/2018/12/what-comes-after-populism-nanny-mcphee-meets-leon-trotsky/

    The upshot of this is that a ‘Scot’ is whoever goes with the programme established by the SNP, and whoever doesn’t is a racist hater. The ScotNat rank-and-file do not understand this and would not care if they did because they really are dumb enough to think their innate anti-racism will override any bad behaviour by the migros. And best of all I, an immigrant who lived in Scotland for 20 years, should not have anything to say about this because I am a racist and the people who have lived here for 2 weeks are more important than me because they are brown. Takeway: the SNP aren’t nationalists, they’re disguised globalists parisitising nationalism to gain power. Look out for more of them.

    How wrong I was.

    You could probably find a non-PC Scottish person about as easily as an openly gay person in Tehran.

    You – the English and the Americans – have been out PC`d by us.

    There is however, one form of racism we do allow.

    You`ll easily find people who hate England and the English – although presumably only white people from England, not the assorted others who live there.

    The “Scottish Natioinal Party” has nothing to do with Scottish nationalism and everything to do with internationalism. The party was created to join Scottish nationalism (which really is nothing more than hating the English) with the Scottish love for socialism and put them into one party. Once Scotland gets its independence they will open the borders to every non-white that desires to move to their beautiful but gloomy country. To a non-white male a total lack of sun is more than acceptable if he’s given a nice fat welfare check and access to white pussy.

    per UK census bureau:

    Scotland on July 1, 1990
    – Residents under age 30: 2,140,000 (born 1960s to 1980s)
    – Residents age 60 and up: 1,030,000 (born 1900s to 1920s)

    Scotland on July 1, 2018
    – Residents under age 30: 1,880,000 (born 1990s to 2010s)
    – Residents age 60 and up: 1,360,000 (born primarily 1930s to 1950s)

    I wonder how big a race gap there is between these two age aggregates.

    I don’t know what census 2021 will find, but searching around ScotlandsCensus.gov.uk, I find the 2011 census numbers. They counted 803,309 White residents of Scotland under age 15 (born mid 1996 to mid 2011), on 854,053 total residents, putting Scotland’s youth cohort in the early 2010s at 94% full-white (and 0.9% Black, if you were wondering). This rises to 99% white for the over-60s (these would be primarily born 1920s to 1940s), and 99.6% for the oldest measured cohort, 85 and up.

    (source 1: UK Office of National Statistics; Population estimates, local authority based by five year age band, Scotland; source 2: Scotland’s Census 2011 – National Records of Scotland; Table DC2101SC – Ethnic group by sex by age; All people).

    Scotland’s age 20 to 29 cohort in 2011 (i.e., born mid 1982 to mid 1991), was down to 92.6% White, including white foreigners. (Non-British Isles whites were up near 8% of this age cohort, four-tenths of whom were Polish.)

    They could explain the context (which is their real problem) in that it was likely hung by a right-wing agitprop actor who believes many things more extreme than “It’s ok to be white” and that the phrase is specifically designed to seem mild but hide the beginnings of a slipperly slope towards Nationalism, etc, etc. But if you explain all that, you give away…to the average Joe…that a chess match is being played. And so you sputter and condemn without explaination.

    The left understands propaganda if they understand nothing else.

    History has also shown that long-term trends aren’t really reversible, unless a major catastrophic event interferes (the Aztecs and the Incas would agree).

    Diocletianus brought back the Roman Empire from the brink of collapse and retired in peace, but the barbarians kept on swarming. All he did was delay the inevitable.

    The Komnenian emperors Made (the second) Rome Great Again for a while, but Turcoman aggression never ceased, and then the Franks came.

    For whatever reason, the West (and by extension white people) do not have the strategic initiative anymore. Multiple past wars, wealth, complacency, material abundance, technology and social mores all work against them. Unless an Ice Age comes soon again.

    Good find, Hail.

    Some fifteen years ago, around the time constitutional law scholar Andrew Fraser (“The WASP Question”) got booted from his job for critical comments he made of African immigration, a bunch of young whites held a minor rally in Sydney to the tune of the popular children’s song “If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands [clap, clap]”, only they substituted “aussie” and “white” for “happy.” Of course, it was condemned, and maybe my memory is playing tricks on me, but condemnations seemed to be less shrill in those days. Packs of SJWs baying for blood in unison weren’t really a thing yet, I think.

    And I’m sure this was covered here, but for anyone who missed it, the “far right” party here (“One Nation”) forced a parliamentary vote on the motion “It’s OK to be white.” Good for a hearty lol if nothing else.

    Anybody else notice that the only heterosexual White male allowed to even speak at the last Demorat convention was the Irish mayor of Boston. The Libs/Leftists have always tried to peal away the Irish Americans to be part of the grand co-alition of the oppressed – and lots and lots of Irish Americans went along with it as long as Irish Americans were running places like Boston and Chicago. It worked when John F Kennedy was made US President, it sort of didn’t work when Ted Kennedy was the highest noticed Irish American pol. Working class White Irish Americans in South Boston really didn’t like Teddy Kennedy and forced bussing but the Irish still voted Irish and kept Ted Kennedy in.

    M’thinks the Kennedy family is pretty much finished, one of the sons of Robert Kennedy tried to run for Governor of Illinois and he just didn’t get traction. A filthy rich Jewish boy was elected Governor just on the basis of his campaign treasury and getting the support of Illinois state public school teachers unions that basically run this state along with BlackLivesMatter and the global homo mafia.

    United Kingdom is the political entity. Scotland is not going to cede its Queen or King with direct bloodline to the 10th centruty. Its part of the most recent proposal. Queen Elisabeth the first of Scotland ( second of England ) is the sovereign there, no suggestion that Scotland intends to be a republic which is exceptionally unpopular.
    SNP also want to maintain the pound. This is largely fantasy after the recent referendum. In Britain it seems second referendums are a no go zone for any sensible politician for the foreseeable future, and the days of armed rebellion have been gone since 1745.

  78. @jon

    Exactly.

    A good slogan is always vague enough so people can fill in the blanks with whatever they like.

    Consider some of the great slogans in presidential campaigns. None meant anything.

    “Bridge to the 21st Century”. About as specific as forward into the future. Means what you want it to mean.

    “Hope and Change”. “Make America Great Again”. Both are meaningless, both got the candidates elected. In both cases many voters were upset to find the new president didn’t mean what they wanted him to mean.

    And how do you refute these? You don’t want to enter a new century? You want hopelessness? You don’t want America to be great?

    The last white nationalist slogan, “anti-racist means anti-white” was terrible. Most people think of themselves as anti-racist but NOT anti-white.

    I am by no means a white nationalist, but how does one argue with “It’s Okay to be White”?

    In Scotland, as almost everywhere outside the US, wokeness is an urban phenomenon, while everyone outside of Glasgow and Edinburgh is pretty based. The MSP knows he doesn’t represent his voters here, hence the over-hysterical, Orwellian reaction. Why not say: “Of course it’s OK to be white?” Because he has to signal to his people that any positive affirmation of their identity is actually excluded from the officially accepted narrative.

    How about: “It’s OK to be Scottish.” as a follow-up? Make him call this ‘atrocious’ ‘unacceptable material’. Then follow this up with “Scottish National Party.” in the exact same design.

  86. I am by no means a white nationalist, but how does one argue with “It’s Okay to be White”?

    I think it is the subtext. “Its Okay to be White” is not just an objectively true statement, but posting it is a public place suggests that the poster is dissatisfied with a political setup in which non-whites are perhaps favored in employment hiring, housing allocations, or educational opportunities and is trying to promote resentment.

    It would be better, perhaps, to openly oppose specific policies if they are perceived to be unjust.

    Bruce Springsteen’s popular song Born In The USA seems to be about a man who is dealt a bad hand right from the start.

    “Born down in a dead man’s town
    The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
    You end up like a dog that’s been beat too much”

    The abused child grows up and gets into some kind of trouble and is given the option to go and fight in Vietnam, which he takes. Apparently his brother is also in Vietnam where he has a local wife and child, but the brother is killed.

    Our hero returns to the USA, where he finds it hard to get a job due to prejudice against veterans and his future is bleak. Possibly he ends up in the penitentiary. Apparently the advantages that the GI bill had given to World War II veterans no longer applied by the 1970s.

    “Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
    Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    I’m ten years burning down the road
    Nowhere to run ain’t got nowhere to go”

    In spite of the bleak message of protest of the song, Born In The USA has since often been played at political rallies and conventions even though the meaning of the song often seems to run contrary to what the politicians stand for.

    Perhaps, like Obama, they just want to clarify that they are eligible by birth to run for the presidency,but even so it seems like a very mixed message given the pessimistic tone of the song.

    Where I live in the South, close to the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, veterans are now very much respected, given preference in hiring, and educational opportunities and so on, so I guess things have changed a lot.

    How would people respond to someone posting a billboard saying “It’s Okay to be a Conscientious Objector nonveteran”? I think there would be a lot of hostility today.

    Bottom line: Since the neolithic people have been able to survive as parasites off other people’s labor. Any ideology that forces other people to work for some master–slavery, serfdom, colonialism, communism’s “you can’t leave”–is thuggish and repugnant to free men.

    Minoritarianism–the Golfocaust, “open housing” neighborhood destruction, school busing, “disparate impact”, discrimination shakedowns, right on up through “white privilege”, “you must bake me a cake”, the War on Christmas and open borders–is a giant hideous program of insisting majorities–and specifically white gentile peoples/nations–not be allowed to produce and live for themselves according to their own norms and values.

    It is a revolution of the parasites demanding the host stop all immune system activity.

    Correct.

    This odious class lingers on in England (centred on the universities, obviously); but for the first time in my life I dare to believe that they have passed peak influence. Nothing remains but inexorable decline.

    It is all an act now, yes. And a shabby one.

    The Scottish National Party – whose leaders are globalist to their very core, and whose actions in power have made this impossible to ignore – is the perfect expression of this unreality.

    The situation is not really comparable: Norway and Sweden were separate states even before 1905 with the Swedish king ruling over both countries in personal union. It was only this personal union that was dissolved, the two states always were separate.

    There was a collapse in racial loyalty among white elites during and immediately after WWI that is hard to understand now. It’s something we need to study more.

  129. @Optimist

    This is especially true when at least half of the population is on the enemy’s side!

    The “it’s okay to be white meme” took a lot of debate in alt-right circles to emerge as a successful slogan. Many people wanted to add to it, change it and otherwise ruin it. It had to explained over and over not to add things to this simple message, not to add other symbols, issues or jokes to it. Right wing people are terrible at messaging. You see that with Silver’s dumb idea of adding words that make the message sound weaker and more hesitant. We still have a long way to go in learning persuasion.

    Scotland has lampposts, correct?

  132. I am predisposed to believing “It’s OK to be white”, but I can see a couple of issues here.

    For information: racial minorities constitute 4% of Scotland’s population.

    https://www.scotlandscensus.gov.uk/ethnicity-identity-language-and-religion

    If the purpose of the stickers is genuinely to get across the message “It’s OK to be white”, then no harm would be done if one in 25 of the stickers reads “It’s OK to be black” (or brown, Pakistani, whatever). Even a generous one in 4 of the stickers could carry a minority message. This would get the main message across, while making it difficult for SJWs to oppose it. Adding a rainbow icon and an anti-racist logo would make opposition even harder.

    In its present form, the campaign plays out differently:

    “It’s sickening and disgusting to know that people think like this.”

    I think the SJWs imagine a false corollary, that it is not OK not to be white. Whoever posts the stickers may also get a thrill from being wrongly considered racist, and from generating outrage.

    If we are honest, we must admit that a statement has more meanings than its strictly logical one. There is the famous sentence used when teaching deconstruction:

    John F Kennedy was not a homosexual.

    And there is Ataturk’s slogan

    Happy is the man who calls himself a Turk.

    This slogan was intended to instil pride in the inhabitants of Anatolia, who were considered backward by the elite of the former Ottoman empire. However, Turkey’s Kurds saw the slogan as marginalising them.

    Nowadays, “It’s OK to be black” is society’s default position. A campaign that affirms that orthodoxy while also declaring “It’s OK to be white” is much more likely to get the latter message across.

    Indeed it’s OK to be Scottish! And diverse to honor, with the statue seen in the video, of Corporal. Wojtek, the Polish Army bear, who with his handler fought at the Battle of Monte Casino.

    Norway needed friends after breaking with Sweden and declaring a republic would have antagonized all the major European powers except France, which was too far away to be of help.

    Thanks for doing the research on this useless Nicole Sturgeon….who is not so plump anymore. She has tightened up to the point where some guy from somewhere (might be from Ecuador)……. Might be doing her\

    Not the left, the ruling class.

    Lol. “No True Scotsman”, again? It’s not ’68 anymore, dude.

    The people who get most triggered are deep state McCainiac types.

    Lol!

    Deep State McCainiac types…like … this?

    The Komnenoi were themselves the product of what you might call a reversed trend. The same swarming invasions that brought the west to its knees in the later fifth century struck the east in the seventh, in the form of the Arab invasions. But the Greeks survived. What emerged was Byzantium, a culturally and politically distinct entity, which then assumed its own historical trajectory.

    The Roman empire had run its course, but the peoples in that empire had a distinct existence and remained free to develop new political forms.

    We see the same thing in other cases: The Japanese had the Meiji restoration after a long period of political decline. After the early Hohenstaufens, Germany too entered a centuries-long era of dissolution only to come together again under Bismarck. Of course all hell broke loose shortly thereafter, and Germany with its EU avatar is hardly a force for good in the world — but it dominates Europe.

    I agree that the West is cooked. But western peoples remain free to conceive of a new West, and what happens next depends a lot on what future political and cultural forms we can develop. Whether we can pull a Byzantium out of our Arab invasions remains to be seen. I don’t yet understand — perhaps nobody does — whether we are in a better or worse position than the seventh-century eastern empire. On the one hand, ours is a problem mainly of will. If we wanted to repel the invaders we could do so easily enough. On the other hand, maybe it is the case that problems of will are the deepest and most profound and insoluble of all.
