The Fairfax neighborhood in West Hollywood, CA is known both for its elderly Jewish population of 1940s refugees and its luxury stores selling conspicuous consumption items that rappers crave, like Cristal champagne.

So the smashing of windows and looting of high end shops on Fairfax and Melrose boulevards could be dubbed Cristalnacht, especially because a small number of the terrorized residents can likely still remember the Kristallnacht of 82 years ago.

    Russia first name plus Germanic last name in 2020 America is very likely Jewish, at least patrilineally. Here’s an Israeli example:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svetlana_Reingold

    If you see such a name in 1880 Russia, still probably Jewish, but less certain, as Russia proper and its empire even more so had millions of ethnic Germans. They tended to also have German first names, but many were assimilated so had the Russian plus German name combo. German ancestry was prestigious in the Russian Empire, so even on assimilation they had an incentive not to Russify their surname.

    Funny pun aside, please don’t draw equivalence.

    This is worse than Kristallnacht, which was a domestic PR blackeye for the Nazis. The German people were put off by the virulence of the anti-Semitism and breakdown in law-and-order. It showed that even in Nazi Germany, the population had more sense than the modern Jewish Left and much of the Boomer Right. The destruction and death toll is also much larger than Kristallnacht.

    Sorry, Boomers, the current democratic system is done. The only consolation will be there is no question about what generation looted and destroyed it.

While immigration was more important to me, I think it was the BLM crime wave that got Trump elected more than anything. The rustbelt WWC areas in the midwest that swung 20 points Romney to Trump have very few third world migrants.

    Kav and Gorsuch are problems too. They voted with the libs for a Texas felon this week. Alito wrote a great dissent that only Thomas joined.

    It was a technical issue, but the result is that felons with state convictions now get yet another chance to attack it in federal court, increasing yet again the already heavy cost state prosecutors have defending convictions in federal court “muh procedural due process” habeas cases.

    It would ruin the merch. Unless you had a “ stripped books” agreement with the vendors to take it back, which would make sense with some types of high value items, that would defeat their purpose.

    Carriage trade clothing vendors already destroy a good deal of stock rather than donate it or sell it at a lower price to protect exclusivity.

    As more and more stuff is electronic and interconnected, the bricking model will become more popular. In fact, more and more it will ship bricked and the store or vendor will have a “PAL code” to make it usable. This is already done with certain high value digital ICs. The parts do not work unless a code is entered, the code is sent to the customer separately. So a tray of chips each worth several hundred dollars is sent by ordinary UPS or FedEx because to a thief they are worthless. The actual incremental cost of making the chip is minuscule; the value is in the design, masks, etc. If a big box is lost or stolen it is insured for a fraction and they make more.

    Another angle is to sell the base model very cheaply but to make all the desirable functionality a remotely enablable option. Sometimes the device has to call home and get the okay to keep it working. I know of a case where a rural ag company bought a gizmo that called home and had a problem in that it depended on IPv6 connectivity. Most small ISPs do not support IPv6 traffic and it became a big hassle. Eventually the vendor wrote a patch to enable it to work through what they had, but 99% of their buyers were on big academic networks, so they never thought of that case.

    With the police and much of the National Guard at least in Blue States taking a knee the Deep State figures Trump will have to call out the military. Especially if the only thing putting down the riots are spontaneous militias of whites, Asians and Hispanics against blacks and antifa. The Deep State thinks they can then out maneuver Trump and establish a coup.

  44. The majority of NYC was untouched by the looting, but the shock runs deep.

    The word “iconic” is way overused but Macy’s Herald Square certainly is.

    There are much pricier stores uptown that were overlooked, or ignored. Chanel & Dior are between 5th and Madison, thus the crowd making its way down 5th missed them. They did pass Harry Winston and Mikimoto. I expect that both stores were securely boarded up, plus the crowd didn’t recognize the names. Harry Winston is the most expensive jewelry store in the US.

    I was too young to observe the Civil Rights Era, but my sense from what I’ve read is that the cops and the Democrats were on the rioters side then too. In fact, all the big media were sympathetic to whatever violence took place. I know there’s some old-timers posting here, so I’d love to hear your observations from the time.

    I wonder about the Democrats, are there any of them who are in favor of law and order? You’d think some of them would smell an opportunity to gain political power with some triangulation. But they seem content to watch their own cities and tax bases get looted and burn down. Here in Sacramento a Sharif Jewelers store was completely robbed and looted the other night and there was nothing the owner could do. will there be any prosecutions? Even any arrests? If I were the owner of that store I would never do business there again. What a total waste.

    Direct the crowds, with police escort, to the homes of every Hollywood studio executive, producer, and director in the LA area, every big banker and financier, every big-time landlord, then step back.

    Throw in the homes of the sluts and dimwit thugs who made their fortunes perverting and confusing young people in “entertainment” like movies, rap “music”, etc. Let them show how they are really down with the cause.

    As policy, have the police shoot to kill anyone trying to smash or loot a small business, but stand aside if the mob approaches a multinational bank or big corporate store. If this sounds radical, it is precisely the converse of what the governments did with the Lockdown: destroy small businesses and families while profits flow more than ever to Amazon, ebay, Walmart, and Target. It is past time to protect the individual, the normal family, the striving entrepreneur, the mom-and-pop shop, and leave the big-boy predators to take care of themselves.

    Throw in the homes of the governor, the mayor, the state legislators, and the judges. It will be hard for them tell us “we’re all in it together” and “racism is the real evil, everyone is the same” as they plead for their lives.

    First it was the Holocaust. Now Michael Brown or George Floyd and more any black suffering or even “suffering”. (At least the Nazis actually did kill a whole bunch of Jews. Now the new religion is sanctifying one black criminal dying from a heart attack while a white cop keeps him down with a knee.)

    Mocking the crucifixion of Christ however … no problem. But interestingly instead of a sign of the cross you can show devotion to the new religion by taking a knee. The more things change …

    The black experience in the USA is diametrically opposed to the Jewish experience. It’s actually shameful to see Jews kvetching about their treatment as minorities when the American Indians and blacks actually had to deal with serious atrocities. The Jews were running the bank, the trans Atlantic slave trade, the sugar plantations, a good portion of the Confederacy, yet they act like victims. In fact, they claim the choicest cuts of victimhood and dole out the scraps to other groups as they see fit.

    This is where governors like NY’s Cuomo steps in and tells insurance companies they’ll lose their state license if the don’t satisfy claims as he–Cuomo–sees fit.

    Cuomo did it for so-called Superstorm Sandy in 2012 stating that insurance companies must use the lower deductibles associated with a tropical storm, rather than the higher deductibles as a hurricane.

    In other words, Cuomo defined the storm as he saw fit, not as the risk was underwritten. Exactly how fascist governments tell businesses to operate–no need for state ownership when you have state control.

    Check out how Larry Silverstein cashed in his entire insurance value on the World Trade Center twice over since there were two planes.

    I hope there will be millions of these. They need to obscure their face through.

    Would it be illegal for retailers to use sprinklers or water guns/cannons to spray looters with Skunk (that Israeli crowd control stuff that smells like a rotting corpse) maybe mixed with turmeric (fabric staining) and vegetable oil (slippery and shoe staining)?

    With Skunk, I understand you don’t need to worry about mixing it with anything: you can smell it on someone for days, just like real skunk. Ergo, any rioters that encounter it will be throwing away their shoes and clothes.

    The entire impetus behind its development was to give the Israelis something that would allow them to track rioters after they go dashing for cover; by all accounts it works quite well.

    The looters who didn’t recognize Harry Winston are apparently not big fans of “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.”

    The original Christalnacht was egged on by Jewish Power. I believe that as late as 1938, the Jews had a highly disproportional share of German real estate When some anti “Nazi” English reporter went to that business district because he had heard that storm troopers were attacking Jewish stores, he discovered to his shock that virtually all the stores were Jewish stores, Christalnacht as it played here and in England was the first of the successful Germanophobia adverts done by Jews and Wasps who wanted war with Germany

    You don’t come to Santa Monica, West LA Beverly Hills Brentwood Bel Air much do you? I’ve never seen a young person or black driving one. It’s always 45 to 85

    You know that we are not allowed to discuss that. Anyone in any First World country besides the US who says any number different than the official one will be put in prison. The truth is, by statute, no defense.

    You can say it in the US but you will lose your job, unless you are a tenured academic or are employed by a family company who will tell the SPLC to fuck themselves and fade the heat. You might get beat up. Your kids will be harassed. All sorts of weird things will happen, such as inexplicable utility shut offs, flat tires, etc. They might poison your dog , divert your mail, order stuff COD to your house, whatever.

    Bob Whitaker was right. The only response to questions of fact about the Holocaust is “We can’t talk about that”.

    It’s like asking a NSA employee about their new in-house IC chips or a NNSA engineer what Fogbank is. If they say anything besides “We can’t talk about that” it’s job loss for sure and maybe prison. Of course that makes everyone that much more interested. In our case that’s a feature.

    These English boys were arrested for this quite funny snapchat meme.

    While I would agree that such a draconian response for the adolescent antics in-question appears unwarranted and even outrageous, I fail to see any humor in them either.

    To be clear, I most certainly do not buy into The Narrative advanced by the usual suspects. For their orgy of sanctimonious preening; their sanction and encouragement of the savagery we have been witnessing for more than a week now; and their calls for what is essentially and effectively a lynching, I have nothing but disgust, contempt and indignation.

    All that notwithstanding, does the fact not remain that a man lost his life?

    [MORE]
    And in a rather horrific manner, no less? Does the video not at least make that much clear– even if nothing else, and even if the police are not to blame?

    George Floyd may have been far from a model citizen. He may have been pretty wretched, loathsome and deplorable. But was he so depraved or devoid of humanity as to forfeit the demonstration of at least a minimum of such– from those who themselves possess it? Are there no members of Mr. Floyd’s family, at least, in consideration of whom some sensitivity would be in order at this time?

    Don’t let the anti-cop Koch Brothers and CATO crew talk you out of anything but 100% support for law enforcement.

    Strong, effective law enforcement is essential to a civilized society. No question.

    I am not quite sure, though, what you mean by “100% support”. I am inclined to agree that as a rule, in recognition of the risks and the intense, often terrible pressure that they face, police should be afforded the benefit of the doubt. (All things being equal and excluding cases involving a specific police force or any individual or individuals that are known to be corrupt.) But police must also be held to a high standard and, like all mere mortals, are not above reproach. To not recognize this; to simply assume, a priori or reflexively that police are always right would seem little better than the inverse.

    That’s a great idea Number 218 and the vegetable odor intensifier should be adopted immediately. Maybe skunk oil could be added too. Tell your law enforcement friends, maybe it’ll go up the chain.

    Might also gross out Safe Space providers, why shouldn’t they sacrifice for the Cause too?

    Democrats are in favor of a society in order, especially where they live, but they are naive about how an orderly society is kept running and preserved. It’s nice to be nice.

    But the further left one goes, the greater the rancor, envy, desire to destroy. No reason to be nice. No reason to care if anyone thinks you are nice. They will tear into one another on personal issues framed as doctrinal correctness, political correctness in a hate-filled way that shows that the desire for power is the real engine driving them, and the movement. Anyone who hangs around them long enough will see it.

    Project Veritas has just released another undercover video on Antifa of Rose City. An organizer is explaining that the approved tactic is not to land a punch on the enemy’s jaw during an aktion, but to gouge his eye, leave permanent damage.
