Douglas Emhoff and Kamala Harris

I’d like to see a debate on racial school busing between Senator Kamala Harris and her mother-in-law, Mrs. Emhoff. I could imagine it going like this:

Sen. Harris: “Being bused in Berkeley was great for me.”

Mrs. Emhoff: “Bus little Dougie to Watts? Are you crazy? Of course we moved to Agoura where there was no busing.”

From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

My final observation from looking through Reardon’s trove of data is that it will be hard for ambitious politicians like [Kamala] Harris to hunt down enough white kids to bus to black and brown schools to make any kind of difference. There just aren’t many centrally located school districts left in America with large numbers of white students.

Due to busing, crime, and the like since the 1960s, America now has a white family diaspora.

For example, Los Angeles public schools used to have a huge number of high-IQ Ashkenazi Jewish students in its San Fernando Valley. But racial busing in the late 1970s put Jewish students to flight: to newly formed private Jewish schools; over a second mountain range to the Las Virgenes school district; or all the way to Portland. During a Harris administration, rounding up their descendants to bus them to South-Central would be even harder than in 1979.

Today it occurred to me that one example of a Jewish teenager whose family moved to the Las Virgenes school district around the time that busing was imposed on the Los Angeles school district in the late 1970s might well be … Mr. Kamala Harris himself, lawyer Douglas Emhoff.

Kamala’s husband is a high-powered business litigator, West Coast head for DLA Piper. Emhoff, who was born in 1965, is a 1987 graduate of Cal State Northridge in the San Fernando Valley, and a 1990 graduate of USC law school.

And sure enough … From a 2019 article in the Hollywood Reporter:

Meanwhile, Emhoff, 54, has continued to build an entertainment litigation practice representing studios and streamers in everything from copyright disputes to contract issues and antitrust matters. He joined DLA Piper from Venable in 2017 and now splits his time between Washington, D.C., and L.A., where he’s lived since high school. (Emhoff was born in Brooklyn “before it was cool” and moved to SoCal as a teen.) The Agoura High alum says he wanted to be a lawyer as a kid and the dream stuck.

Agoura HS is the largest high school of the Las Virgenes school district.

In his defense, he might argue (and Emhoff is very good at arguing — I was talking to a lawyer at the gym recently and Emhoff’s name came up and this lawyer was lavish in his praise of Emhoff’s skills) that perhaps his family moved directly from the New York area to the Las Virgenes school district without touching down in the Los Angeles school district.

But Emhoff didn’t become a teenager until late 1978, the year after busing was ordered for Los Angeles, so it’s quite likely that his parents were monitoring the L.A. busing question and that it’s not a coincidence that they picked the prime white-flight destination of Agoura, just outside the vast and busing-plagued Los Angeles Unified School District.

In general, the vast exodus of Jews from the Los Angeles public school system at the end of the 1970s is not well remembered. But it was a huge deal at the time four decades ago.

From the New York Times in 1977:

Los Angeles Schools Plan Busing Amid White Flight
By ROBERT LINDSEY OCT. 11, 1977

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10 — After more than a decade of legal battles over integration the nation’s second largest school system is edging toward mandatory busing for thousands of children via the freeways of this far‐flung city.

But even as it does so the system is continuing to [bleed?] the white enrollment it needs to achieve a racial balance in schools with large nonwhite and Hispanic enrollments.

Suburban real estate brokers report that an influx of home buyers who leave Los Angeles say that they want to avoid court‐ordered busing. Private schools report increased applications. And this fall, for the first time, white students are a minority in the sprawling, 710‐square mile Los Angeles school system….

An integration plan submitted by the Board of Education last week to Judge Paul Egly of the Superior Court called. for the mandatory busing of 55,000 fourth through eighth‐grade students beginning next fall, and 112,000 the following year. The goal is to have a maximum one‐way commute of 45 minutes, although some students would face longer trips.

The Los Angeles Unified School District spans both much of the urban Los Angeles basin and much of the suburban San Fernando Valley north of the Santa Monica Mountains. Busing white kids over the Hollywood Hills on the 405 freeway and 101 freeways to integrate South-Central schools was one of the more, shall we say, heroic conceptions in the history of school busing.

… parents organizations have attacked it as being impractical and a cruelty to children to be subjected to such long‐haul commuting away from their neighborhoods. … School officials argued that the distances were too far and that too few whites are available to integrate many neighborhood schools. schools.

A different conclusion was reached in a study for the school district made by Dr. David Armor of the Rand Corporation and Dr. Howard Freeman, director of the Institute for Social Science Research at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Based on an opinion survey they determined that up to 58,000 white pupils, or about 35,000 families, would leave the district by 1980 if mandatory busing takes effect. Such a loss would be in addition to an expected decline of 60,000 white students that would result from a lower birth rate and a normal flow of white families to the suburbs.

“It’s not integration; it’s busing that is behind their attitudes,” Dr. Freeman said. “And it’s not only whites. There was a significant percentage of Mexican Americans, and some blacks, who were opposed to mandatory busing.” …

A preliminary enrollment count last month indicated that the proportion of whites had dropped this year, from 37 percent to 35.2 percent. Mexican‐American students, at 35.3 percent, were the largest ethnic group, followed by blacks, at 22.5 percent.

In contrast, here’s the school district’s demographics today:

Latino 73.4%
White 10.5%
African American 8.2%
Asian 4.2%
American Indian or Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian or
Pacific Islander Less than 1%
Filipino 2.1%
Not reported 1%

Here’s Emhoff coming to his wife’s assistance when some animal rights protester grabbed the microphone from her. He’s the angry-looking man in the dark brown suit at the end propelling the protester offstage. Good for him.

  6. For black performance, San Francisco beats only Rochester, Milwaukee, and Syracuse.

    Rochester had one of the worst hoods I’d ever seen when I was there in 2010, as bad as Camden although small ( Avenue D is dire). Buffalo is also pretty bad, which Joe can confirm if he’s around. These upstate cities are fascinating in that they have transplants from NYC who took their kids up there to get away from bad influences. It’s hard for the parents to acknowledge that maybe their kid was getting into trouble in Brooklyn because they themselves were the the bad influencers. That’s what the local parents say, anyway.

    Meanwhile, the middle-class whites, many of them Italian, white-flighted to nearby Greece. Upstate has been in a Depression for 20 years it seems, but liberals hate the white enclaves up there that are getting along somehow. These people could be in for some bussing, good and hard.

    Speaking of Camden (NJ), city sets a new "high" in the annals of idiot crime:

    "Kidnappers sent photo of blindfolded victim, demanded pounds of pot before he was found dead."

    The person or people accused of kidnapping the 20-year-old grandson of the City of Camden’s council president sent a photo to his family of the young man blindfolded and bound and demanded “10 to 15 pounds of marijuana,” according to police.

    Police arrested Brandon Beverly on kidnapping and aggravated assault charges on Tuesday, before Jenkins’ body was found.

    Another victim of mass incarceration forced into a life of crime:

    According to court records, Beverly has been incarcerated for seven criminal convictions including drug distribution in 2006, absconding from parole and receiving stolen property in 2009, possession of a handgun in 2011, escaping from detention in 2014 and obstructing justice in 2017.

    In the gun possession case, Beverly pulled a gun on an officer and was shot at before surrendering, according to an appellate court ruling. The officer was investigating reports of people in a Camden apartment complex calling cabs and then robbing the drivers, the decision said.

    A: Not like this:

    Here, the reader is left wondering what the “[bleed?]” originally was. A better correction would be to quote the original wording along with the quoter’s inferred correction, thus:
    “the system is continuing to bee [bleed?] the white enrollment it needs to achieve a racial balance”.

    The quoting of an error in the original text is done (correctly, in my opinion) later in the article: “too few whites are available to integrate many neighborhood schools. schools.”

  20. I guess the question now is how they define diversity in public schools. Is it just whites versus every other race, or are they going to try to balance out the blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, as well? If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won’t be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either.

    The problem Democrats will have now that they didn’t have in the 70s is that calling out hypocrisy is so much easier, thanks to the internet. If schools become a battleground again then every leftist judge and politician and judge who sends their kid to a less diverse school, or a private school no matter the alleged racial balance, is going to be called out publicly. It could probably also destroy the racial spoils system by encouraging more people to lie about their race. Right now most people don’t even think about lying when a government or business form asks their race, even though they should. But if their childrens’ education is on the line then the incentive is too much to pass up.

    The Democratic Party used to be somewhat more subtle in its contempt for middle and working-class whites. They are incredibly blunt about it now, however. Anyone who doesn’t notice it is just willfully ignorant.

    '...If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won’t be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either...'

    There's the understatement of the morning.

    When I was a teacher in the LA schools in the eighties, schools were often transitioning from mostly black to mostly Hispanic. The formula was that things were alright as long as either race was under about 10% or 20% or something -- but all hell broke loose once the smaller group went over that figure.

    I taught at a Hispanic/Asian High school -- it went from about 80% Hispanic/20% Asian to about 60%/40% during my tenure. I once had an Hispanic girl transferred in mid-term from a predominantly black school. She was a perfectly nice, well-behaved girl -- but she just couldn't stop fighting with black girls.

    Go figure.

    ...and Asians vs Hispanics were a bit of an item too. Once some Hispanic kids from our school were cutting class and down in Chinatown, pushing old ladies off the sidewalk and generally having themselves a good time. Some Asian gang kids came by in a car and shot them all. Didn't kill any, but...

    ...and my last year, I had this little Asian kid in my 6th period Algebra class. Pretty good kid -- kind of surly-looking, but quiet, and a solid 'B" student (which, the way I graded, was pretty good).

    So I noticed he was exactly a year too old to be in the ninth grade. This is weird...I asked one of the kids who'd gone to junior high school with him about it.

    It turned out two Hispanic kids had tried to jump him after school. Kid had picked up a two by four, and to make a long story short, one of the Hispanic kids lost an eye. His mother threw a tantrum, and kid was expelled from school for a year to placate her. Hence the year behind.

    Life in the big city. It's not all about white people.

    Good question, I assume they will define diversity by the number of whites verse blacks, just as they did in the 70’s.

    the politicians will target schools for busing based solely on the number of non-Hispanic whites. If a school is more than 70% white and less than 10% Black they will seek to bus in blacks and bus the whites to black schools.

    The Judges were well known and hated from 1956 on and not one White person did anything to punish them

    If you think judges care about what anyone thinks about them, they don’t.

    Occasionally a municipal court judge doesn’t get re elected for some reason. Rose Byrd, California Supreme Court judge was re called decades ago. She was a pro criminal crusader. Voted to overturn every criminal case that went before her court.

    It was a coalition of businesses that got rid of her because one of her environmental decision would be to whatever they did.

    Federal judges are for life. No one can touch them no matter what they do, not even the president. Muni judges run for election but are routinely re elected unless a well organized well funded group gets rid of them.

    Judges make the laws now.

  21. It’s noteworthy that these liberals think adding white children will make a school better. It goes against their dogmatic belief that all races are the same. Why wouldn’t an all black school do as well as an all white school? We know but don’t speak it. Of course, liberals will say an all black school won’t have the same resources which is generally untrue. They control the purse strings here in California anyway.

These upstate cities are fascinating in that they have transplants from NYC who took their kids up there to get away from bad influences. It's hard for the parents to acknowledge that maybe their kid was getting into trouble in Brooklyn because they themselves were the the bad influencers. That's what the local parents say, anyway.

    Meanwhile, the middle-class whites, many of them Italian, white-flighted to nearby Greece. Upstate has been in a Depression for 20 years it seems, but liberals hate the white enclaves up there that are getting along somehow. These people could be in for some bussing, good and hard.

    One question I have about busing: Did it work? Certainly there must be studies. Did black kids bused to white schools do better? Did white kids bused to the slum do the same as they would have in their home district, or worse? Can these questions be answered while controling for IQ or standardize test results?

    The voluntary blacks from Inglewood who came to my school were obviously skimmed cream, higher IQ. I expect any whites going to the slum in mandatory busing were lower IQ kids of loser white parents.

    If this can all be untangled I bet the results would be that busing slightly helped black kids in the short term, which given the jail thing and the affirmative action thing, might have helped them long term in income, but not in skills or intelligence. As for the white kids, maybe not much change for a lot of them: they weren’t going anywhere anyway.

    During a Harris administration, rounding up their descendants to bus them to South-Central would be even harder than in 1979.

    Who says Kamala Harris is going to bus the students to racially integrate every school in the USA?

    I guess the question now is how they define diversity in public schools. Is it just whites versus every other race, or are they going to try to balance out the blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, as well? If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won't be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either.

    The problem Democrats will have now that they didn't have in the 70s is that calling out hypocrisy is so much easier, thanks to the internet. If schools become a battleground again then every leftist judge and politician and judge who sends their kid to a less diverse school, or a private school no matter the alleged racial balance, is going to be called out publicly. It could probably also destroy the racial spoils system by encouraging more people to lie about their race. Right now most people don't even think about lying when a government or business form asks their race, even though they should. But if their childrens' education is on the line then the incentive is too much to pass up.

    The Democratic Party used to be somewhat more subtle in its contempt for middle and working-class whites. They are incredibly blunt about it now, however. Anyone who doesn't notice it is just willfully ignorant.

    ‘…If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won’t be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either…’

    There’s the understatement of the morning.

    When I was a teacher in the LA schools in the eighties, schools were often transitioning from mostly black to mostly Hispanic. The formula was that things were alright as long as either race was under about 10% or 20% or something — but all hell broke loose once the smaller group went over that figure.

    I taught at a Hispanic/Asian High school — it went from about 80% Hispanic/20% Asian to about 60%/40% during my tenure. I once had an Hispanic girl transferred in mid-term from a predominantly black school. She was a perfectly nice, well-behaved girl — but she just couldn’t stop fighting with black girls.

    Go figure.

    …and Asians vs Hispanics were a bit of an item too. Once some Hispanic kids from our school were cutting class and down in Chinatown, pushing old ladies off the sidewalk and generally having themselves a good time. Some Asian gang kids came by in a car and shot them all. Didn’t kill any, but…

    …and my last year, I had this little Asian kid in my 6th period Algebra class. Pretty good kid — kind of surly-looking, but quiet, and a solid ‘B” student (which, the way I graded, was pretty good).

    So I noticed he was exactly a year too old to be in the ninth grade. This is weird…I asked one of the kids who’d gone to junior high school with him about it.

    It turned out two Hispanic kids had tried to jump him after school. Kid had picked up a two by four, and to make a long story short, one of the Hispanic kids lost an eye. His mother threw a tantrum, and kid was expelled from school for a year to placate her. Hence the year behind.

    Life in the big city. It’s not all about white people.

  39. Ashkenazi Jews and White Episcopalians, Unitarians and Presbyterians take their own children’s education very seriously. That is truly admirable. They don’t take anyone else’s education seriously. That is the problem. The chance of any of them – liberal, Democratic, SJW, sending their kids to school with kids whose IQs are a standard deviation or two lower, is precisely zero. They will all vote for Kamala and her pro-busing plans and they will curse Drumf. But they ain’t sending their kids anywhere near the diversity.

    Multi-ethnic societies have existed for a long time, and always will. So too will racial/ethnic segregration, which is either official policy or is de-facto the social custom practiced by most people. Most people, truth be told, don't feel malevolence toward other ethnic groups, but rather wish that everyone gets their own turf and is happy with what they have, and aren't stepping on each other's toes. "White Flight" (as if whites are the only ones who wish to live among their own kind) happened precisely because most people, in most times, do not want violence and unrest. Do you think you could use violence to get your way? Keep in mind that the US military, when studying WW2 soldier performance, found that many people were reluctant to pull the trigger, and in subsequent training tried to develop ways of countering that "shyness" that people have.

    Dang, that's a heck of a blackpill.

    Then again, the integration at little rock was back all the way in 1957, a good bit before busing was in full force. At that time President Eisenhower issued Executive order 10730, which Federalized the National Guard.

    Though the Left would never phrase it this way that was a pretty clear message to white America: We will use Federal military power to destroy White America's ability to be left alone.

    So I think at that point every white male thinking about the welfare of his children had this subconscious thought in the back of his head:

    "I could resist, knowing that the American political establishment has strongly implied it is willing to devolve into civil war 2 over the question of white sovereignty, or I could simply move to the suburbs. Civil War's are nasty, awful things, and American Suburbs are aren't too bad even if I'm being forced to live there due to a cold war of racial displacement."

    And military background is in some way a hindrance. American white guys aren't like Chechens and don't just start fighting for the heck of it. Give a White guy a uniform, medals, and he'll risk his life in some distant desert in not time. Tell him he could fight for a real cause against enemies who have openly stated they hate him and he just doesn't think it's worth it without the approval of "legitimate authorities," and the G.I. bill.

  48. Slightly off topic, but here goes: I think Kamala Harris has the Dem nomination locked up. I believe the Goebbels media (NYT, waPo, CNN etc) determine the Dem nomination by massively slanting their coverage in favor of their preferred candidate.

    The last election that Goebbels media’s preferred Dem candidate wasn’t nominated was 1984 (Mondale over Hart). Since then their favorites always win (Dukakis, Clinton, Kerry, Obama, Clinton).The media was indifferent (mostly bored) by Gore vs Bradley.

    The slanting of news coverage within the Dem races is severe and has gotten constantly gotten worse over time. Consider Kerry’s absurdly favorable coverage vs Dean, Obama’s coronation as the reincarnation of Lincoln and FDR vs Hillary, and the new nadir of bias reached in Clinton vs Sanders.

    So projecting the Dem nominee is a lot easier than most people think. You don’t have to forecast what the Dem voters will do, you just have project who the media will anoint. The Goebbels media is now almost completely owned or controlled by oligarchs (Bezos owns the WaPo, Carlos Slim owns Walter Duranty’s crap rag). So to forecast the Dem nominee all you have to claculate is who the oligarchs will select. I think they chose KH back in 2018. The oligarchs fear genuine lefty populism which might tax away their wealth so they have to stop Bernie and I think Kamala is their chosen tool. They can use identity politics to block socialism. They see KH as another Obama, a stooge who won’t mess with them and will keep the retard left entertained with bright shiny objects like reviving busing.

    Teacher Apologizes for Yearbook Photo of Students in Klan Garb

    By PAMELA MORELAND
    June 18, 1988

    A yearbook photograph of an Agoura High School history teacher arm-in-arm with two students dressed in white robes similar to ones worn by Ku Klux Klan members has embarrassed Las Virgenes Unified School District administrators.

    The photograph is of teacher Curt Miller minutes after the end of a class on intimidation tactics used by Klan members against blacks during the post-Civil War period. Miller asked the students to don the white sheets and hoods to dramatize the lesson.

    The Agoura High yearbook staff and adviser decided to use the picture after much discussion, school administrators said. The picture was published above a caption stating that the people in white robes were students participating in a classroom demonstration.

    “The yearbook staff debated the negatives and positives of using the picture,” Agoura High Principal Michael Botsford said this week. “On the negative side, they knew the picture might be misinterpreted. On the positive side, they believed it would illustrate how students learn about issues such as racism.”

    Agoura High has an enrollment of 1,800 students, 20 of whom are black, Latino or Asian. Whites make up about 95% of residents in the affluent, western Los Angeles County communities served by the school. Botsford said some people in the area are not as aware of racial issues as are others who reside in multi-ethnic communities.

    The first shipment of yearbooks was passed out to students last week. On Monday, when Botsford arrived in his office, a telephone call from an angry parent was waiting for him.

    In the following days, Botsford said he worked hard to ease tensions. He met with a group of minority students, six black and one Latino, who requested the session to discuss the picture. He apologized to the students and said he plans to write letters of apology to their parents.

    In a short speech broadcast over the school’s public-address system Wednesday, Botsford apologized and said that publishing the photograph “was a poor decision.”

    “It should have never been published, even with the caption,” District Supt. Albert Marley said.

    The history of forced busing in the US should give all the Bar Stool Rambos a reason to re-assess their conviction that Heritage American partisans will defeat the Left within months of the outbreak of Civil War 2.0.

    White adults in the 1970’s had not yet been brainwashed by PC public education, entertainment and religion. Many males had military - if not combat - experience due to the draft. The outrage of busing was not theoretical or far in the future. It was immediate, and injured their most precious asset: their children.

    The success of busing depended on the operations of conspicuous, vulnerable, yet inanimate objects: school buses. So why didn’t white resistance groups organize to burn, sabotage and shoot up school buses? Threaten school bus drivers and other school staff? Violent opposition would have been easy, effective and bloodless.

    Instead, whites chose to move and/or send their kids to private schools. Safe, practical, individualistic response to what was actually a communal problem.

    So what makes you think whites will rise up over anything if they wouldn’t rise up to defend their own children?

    You are quite right. I’m certain the mass media played a critical role in that. They say one of the key reasons the 1961 putsch in Algiers failed is that de Gaulle was able to speak directly to the troops via their transistor radios. Ten years later, transistor radios and TV sets were even more common. Social media and smartphones may turn out to have the opposite effect. It’s too soon to tell.

  52. “Busing white kids over the Hollywood Hills on the 405 freeway and 101 freeways to integrate South-Central schools was one of the more, shall we say, heroic conceptions in the history of school busing.”

    Unbelievable…absolutely unbelievable! I know the area fairly well as my cousin lived in Sherman Oaks just south of the Ventura Freeway (101) near the intersection of I-405. She and her husband eventually threw in the towel and moved to a suburb of Dallas.

    I guess the question now is how they define diversity in public schools. Is it just whites versus every other race, or are they going to try to balance out the blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, as well? If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won't be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either.

    The problem Democrats will have now that they didn't have in the 70s is that calling out hypocrisy is so much easier, thanks to the internet. If schools become a battleground again then every leftist judge and politician and judge who sends their kid to a less diverse school, or a private school no matter the alleged racial balance, is going to be called out publicly. It could probably also destroy the racial spoils system by encouraging more people to lie about their race. Right now most people don't even think about lying when a government or business form asks their race, even though they should. But if their childrens' education is on the line then the incentive is too much to pass up.

    The Democratic Party used to be somewhat more subtle in its contempt for middle and working-class whites. They are incredibly blunt about it now, however. Anyone who doesn't notice it is just willfully ignorant.

  55. I’m curious: Has anyone (with an audience; not me!) ever made the point that so-called busing represents a colossal amount of wasted fossil fuels (not just via combustion while driving, but those needed to build, maintain, and repair buses – tyres, filters, belts…), contributes to the already inhuman congestion of the roads, and increase pollution of the air?

    If no one has ever, why the heck not?

    Is it just another case of the batshit loony and monstrously evil GloboHomo racket, like the self-styled environmentalists who just love-love-love overpopulation via immigration and all its horrors? I suppose Negroes’ insatiable hunger for white children to molest is like Pre-American Americans’ rapaciousness, more important than avoiding ecological disaster and the human misery of life in an anthill on our way to fighting Lord Humungus for gasoline. Thus, pointing out the inevitable consequences is verboten and futile.

    The autopsy report has confirmed the cop’s story that he fired a warning shot at a wall, and that the victim had the misfortune of getting hit by a bullet fragment. The incident started when the cop (off-duty) saw the victim and a few of his friends beating some kid, yelled at them to stop it, and in response got rocks thrown at him.

    I think that it is more likely that the family packed up and left Georgia not because of the alleged anti-Semitic incident but 1) because the neighborhood and property values had plummeted due to the busing 2) most of the kid's white peers had abandoned the public schools for Christian schools, a path that he and his brother's could not take, 3) they were just a few years away from middle school, and middle school is where the rubber finally hits the road as far as adolescent race relations go.

    Rochester had one of the worst hoods I'd ever seen when I was there in 2010, as bad as Camden although small ( Avenue D is dire). Buffalo is also pretty bad, which Joe can confirm if he's around. These upstate cities are fascinating in that they have transplants from NYC who took their kids up there to get away from bad influences. It's hard for the parents to acknowledge that maybe their kid was getting into trouble in Brooklyn because they themselves were the the bad influencers. That's what the local parents say, anyway.

    Meanwhile, the middle-class whites, many of them Italian, white-flighted to nearby Greece. Upstate has been in a Depression for 20 years it seems, but liberals hate the white enclaves up there that are getting along somehow. These people could be in for some bussing, good and hard.

    I think it’s down to about 9 percent Whites now. Mostly tough immigrants who keep the blacks and Hispanics down.

    You do realize that there were plenty of White goyim in Los Angels driven out by busing? Or don’t. we goyim matter?

    Speaking of Camden (NJ), city sets a new "high" in the annals of idiot crime:

    "Kidnappers sent photo of blindfolded victim, demanded pounds of pot before he was found dead."

    The person or people accused of kidnapping the 20-year-old grandson of the City of Camden’s council president sent a photo to his family of the young man blindfolded and bound and demanded “10 to 15 pounds of marijuana,” according to police.

    Police arrested Brandon Beverly on kidnapping and aggravated assault charges on Tuesday, before Jenkins’ body was found.

    Another victim of mass incarceration forced into a life of crime:

    According to court records, Beverly has been incarcerated for seven criminal convictions including drug distribution in 2006, absconding from parole and receiving stolen property in 2009, possession of a handgun in 2011, escaping from detention in 2014 and obstructing justice in 2017.

    In the gun possession case, Beverly pulled a gun on an officer and was shot at before surrendering, according to an appellate court ruling. The officer was investigating reports of people in a Camden apartment complex calling cabs and then robbing the drivers, the decision said.

    The history of forced busing in the US should give all the Bar Stool Rambos a reason to re-assess their conviction that Heritage American partisans will defeat the Left within months of the outbreak of Civil War 2.0.

    White adults in the 1970’s had not yet been brainwashed by PC public education, entertainment and religion. Many males had military - if not combat - experience due to the draft. The outrage of busing was not theoretical or far in the future. It was immediate, and injured their most precious asset: their children.

    The success of busing depended on the operations of conspicuous, vulnerable, yet inanimate objects: school buses. So why didn’t white resistance groups organize to burn, sabotage and shoot up school buses? Threaten school bus drivers and other school staff? Violent opposition would have been easy, effective and bloodless.

    Instead, whites chose to move and/or send their kids to private schools. Safe, practical, individualistic response to what was actually a communal problem.

    Rochester had one of the worst hoods I'd ever seen when I was there in 2010, as bad as Camden although small ( Avenue D is dire). Buffalo is also pretty bad, which Joe can confirm if he's around. These upstate cities are fascinating in that they have transplants from NYC who took their kids up there to get away from bad influences. It's hard for the parents to acknowledge that maybe their kid was getting into trouble in Brooklyn because they themselves were the the bad influencers. That's what the local parents say, anyway.

    Meanwhile, the middle-class whites, many of them Italian, white-flighted to nearby Greece. Upstate has been in a Depression for 20 years it seems, but liberals hate the white enclaves up there that are getting along somehow. These people could be in for some bussing, good and hard.

    The autopsy report has confirmed the cop's story that he fired a warning shot at a wall, and that the victim had the misfortune of getting hit by a bullet fragment. The incident started when the cop (off-duty) saw the victim and a few of his friends beating some kid, yelled at them to stop it, and in response got rocks thrown at him.

    Israeli newspapers, unlike American ones, still have online comments. So I can tell you that Israelis are not at all amused by the rioting.

    Multi-ethnic societies have existed for a long time, and always will. So too will racial/ethnic segregration, which is either official policy or is de-facto the social custom practiced by most people. Most people, truth be told, don’t feel malevolence toward other ethnic groups, but rather wish that everyone gets their own turf and is happy with what they have, and aren’t stepping on each other’s toes. “White Flight” (as if whites are the only ones who wish to live among their own kind) happened precisely because most people, in most times, do not want violence and unrest. Do you think you could use violence to get your way? Keep in mind that the US military, when studying WW2 soldier performance, found that many people were reluctant to pull the trigger, and in subsequent training tried to develop ways of countering that “shyness” that people have.

It is not “oppression” at all. It is actually a demand that the other people give you stuff.

    To be fair–tax money is a different story. Black schools not getting adequate money–that was a real thing. But “segregation” a barrier to learning? No. People who can, do. They don’t need to glom onto anyone else.

    Heck, American Catholics went out of their way to build schools so they could instill Catholic dogma/sensibility–and not be subject to the Prots version of the Lord’s Prayer–even taking the hit of giving up all their school tax money to do so. If you’re competent you can do your own thing just fine.

    Steve, appreciate the effort, but i think all the stuff calling out Jews on their hypocrisy–whether regarding Israel or here locally–zero traction.

    The bottom line is you can guilt most white gentiles on grounds of “fair play”, “decency” and “universal principles” into opening up their schools, businesss, neighborhoods and nations to other people. White gentiles’ culture and genone was formed over the last thousand years in a detribalized, integrative, marry-the-girl-next-door environment. Openess, integration, neighborliness, fair-play that’s part of our DNA and we can–and have been–guilted and manipulated with it.

    But the Ashkenazi kept themselves tribally endogamously separate from integrating with their gentile neighbors for over a 1000 years … and come to America and whine about “restricted” country clubs and preen like they are Martin Luther King and always just wanted to integrate and to be judged by “the content of their character”. Trying to call Jews out on “fair play” or adherance to “universal principles” is a joke. Sure there are a few stupid Jews who never understood the scam–and actually do subject their family to the “diversity” they preach. But overwhelminly the only “universal principle” at play with these folks is “is it good for the Jews”.

    I guess the question now is how they define diversity in public schools. Is it just whites versus every other race, or are they going to try to balance out the blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, as well? If they try the latter things could get very interesting. Asians won't be happy, and Hispanics might not be very happy, either.

    The problem Democrats will have now that they didn't have in the 70s is that calling out hypocrisy is so much easier, thanks to the internet. If schools become a battleground again then every leftist judge and politician and judge who sends their kid to a less diverse school, or a private school no matter the alleged racial balance, is going to be called out publicly. It could probably also destroy the racial spoils system by encouraging more people to lie about their race. Right now most people don't even think about lying when a government or business form asks their race, even though they should. But if their childrens' education is on the line then the incentive is too much to pass up.

    The Democratic Party used to be somewhat more subtle in its contempt for middle and working-class whites. They are incredibly blunt about it now, however. Anyone who doesn't notice it is just willfully ignorant.

    -- some sort of explicit oath to defer to all legitimate republican decision making
    -- terms, no lifetime appointments
    -- *severe* sanction--death or explusion from the polity--for overreach
    -- a tradition of the people to jealously defend themselves--impeachment and imposition of penalty--for judicial overreach


    But that's all "redesign". What's required now is outright explicit defiance. We need people in the republican branches who are willing to defy and punish judicial imcursions into their legitimate powers.

    Dang, that's a heck of a blackpill.

    Then again, the integration at little rock was back all the way in 1957, a good bit before busing was in full force. At that time President Eisenhower issued Executive order 10730, which Federalized the National Guard.

    Though the Left would never phrase it this way that was a pretty clear message to white America: We will use Federal military power to destroy White America's ability to be left alone.

    So I think at that point every white male thinking about the welfare of his children had this subconscious thought in the back of his head:

    "I could resist, knowing that the American political establishment has strongly implied it is willing to devolve into civil war 2 over the question of white sovereignty, or I could simply move to the suburbs. Civil War's are nasty, awful things, and American Suburbs are aren't too bad even if I'm being forced to live there due to a cold war of racial displacement."

    And military background is in some way a hindrance. American white guys aren't like Chechens and don't just start fighting for the heck of it. Give a White guy a uniform, medals, and he'll risk his life in some distant desert in not time. Tell him he could fight for a real cause against enemies who have openly stated they hate him and he just doesn't think it's worth it without the approval of "legitimate authorities," and the G.I. bill.

    Slightly off topic, but here goes: I think Kamala Harris has the Dem nomination locked up. I believe the Goebbels media (NYT, waPo, CNN etc) determine the Dem nomination by massively slanting their coverage in favor of their preferred candidate.

    The last election that Goebbels media's preferred Dem candidate wasn't nominated was 1984 (Mondale over Hart). Since then their favorites always win (Dukakis, Clinton, Kerry, Obama, Clinton).The media was indifferent (mostly bored) by Gore vs Bradley.

    The slanting of news coverage within the Dem races is severe and has gotten constantly gotten worse over time. Consider Kerry's absurdly favorable coverage vs Dean, Obama's coronation as the reincarnation of Lincoln and FDR vs Hillary, and the new nadir of bias reached in Clinton vs Sanders.

    So projecting the Dem nominee is a lot easier than most people think. You don't have to forecast what the Dem voters will do, you just have project who the media will anoint. The Goebbels media is now almost completely owned or controlled by oligarchs (Bezos owns the WaPo, Carlos Slim owns Walter Duranty's crap rag). So to forecast the Dem nominee all you have to claculate is who the oligarchs will select. I think they chose KH back in 2018. The oligarchs fear genuine lefty populism which might tax away their wealth so they have to stop Bernie and I think Kamala is their chosen tool. They can use identity politics to block socialism. They see KH as another Obama, a stooge who won't mess with them and will keep the retard left entertained with bright shiny objects like reviving busing.

    White adults in the 1970’s had not yet been brainwashed by PC public education, entertainment and religion. Many males had military - if not combat - experience due to the draft. The outrage of busing was not theoretical or far in the future. It was immediate, and injured their most precious asset: their children.

    The success of busing depended on the operations of conspicuous, vulnerable, yet inanimate objects: school buses. So why didn’t white resistance groups organize to burn, sabotage and shoot up school buses? Threaten school bus drivers and other school staff? Violent opposition would have been easy, effective and bloodless.

    Instead, whites chose to move and/or send their kids to private schools. Safe, practical, individualistic response to what was actually a communal problem.

    So what makes you think whites will rise up over anything if they wouldn’t rise up to defend their own children?

So too will racial/ethnic segregration, which is either official policy or is de-facto the social custom practiced by most people. Most people, truth be told, don't feel malevolence toward other ethnic groups, but rather wish that everyone gets their own turf and is happy with what they have, and aren't stepping on each other's toes.

    The slanting of news coverage within the Dem races is severe and has gotten constantly gotten worse over time. Consider Kerry's absurdly favorable coverage vs Dean, Obama's coronation as the reincarnation of Lincoln and FDR vs Hillary, and the new nadir of bias reached in Clinton vs Sanders.

    So projecting the Dem nominee is a lot easier than most people think. You don't have to forecast what the Dem voters will do, you just have project who the media will anoint. The Goebbels media is now almost completely owned or controlled by oligarchs (Bezos owns the WaPo, Carlos Slim owns Walter Duranty's crap rag). So to forecast the Dem nominee all you have to claculate is who the oligarchs will select. I think they chose KH back in 2018. The oligarchs fear genuine lefty populism which might tax away their wealth so they have to stop Bernie and I think Kamala is their chosen tool. They can use identity politics to block socialism. They see KH as another Obama, a stooge who won't mess with them and will keep the retard left entertained with bright shiny objects like reviving busing.

    You nailed it, Doc.

    It will be fun to watch the major media turn on Joe Biden and destroy him. The only interesting question is the exact day the attack begins. If we watch carefully (thanks to the Internet) we may to identify the exact hour and minute the media starts to attack Biden. As you note they will do so loudly and in unison like the craven puppets that they are.

    Not true - the busing mandates went away eventually. It's one of the few cases I can think of where some kind of progressive bullshit was actually rolled back.

    It’s not Obama appointees. It’s common law. Judges make it up as they go along

    Johnson vs Cesear 1654 Virginia one judge invented slavery in America. Biggest worst disaster ever. Turned ordinary workers into valuable livestock to be imported bred bought and sold.

    Marbury vs Madison 1804. established that the Supreme Court can issue orders to the president
    1804. Only President to disobey a Supreme Court order was Lincoln. Suspended habeas corpus kept about 40,000 people in prison during the civil war Satanic supremes ordered habeas re unstated. Lincoln disobeyed the order
    And nothing happened.

    Jackson made a small effort but obeyed in the end.

    We live in a country ruled by judges who can and do make up new laws and overturn existing laws. It’s nothing new. Since 1956 Brown judges have been the foremost most effective enemy of White Americans.
    If a judge ordered the army to start killing us the army would obey orders.

    Replies: @J.Ross

    It’s not making it up as they go along, it’s discovering legal principles undergirding law, in those cases where existing law has a problem, and was brought to them. Harrying the president isn’t covered by this. But then professional activists acting on behalf of foreign billionaires should not be covered by the first amendment.

    Congress reigns supreme, as does Parliament.

    The courts are subservient theater.

    Every government official, including the President & Chief Justice are removable.

    Replies: @Alden, @J.Ross

    That’s not really how any of that works. The “supremacy” of the legislature (which cannot be supremacy because it’s subject to the courts) derives from it being able to in theory “do anything” in its slow and democratically strangled way. The only two judges I am aware of who were recently removed were indefensible disasters who plainly broke the law and decorum in court, and one left voluntarily. No judge is in danger of removal for carrying the Establishment’s water.

    The Judges were well known and hated from 1956 on and not one White person did anything to punish them

    If you think judges care about what anyone thinks about them, they don’t.

    Occasionally a municipal court judge doesn’t get re elected for some reason. Rose Byrd, California Supreme Court judge was re called decades ago. She was a pro criminal crusader. Voted to overturn every criminal case that went before her court.

    It was a coalition of businesses that got rid of her because one of her environmental decision would be to whatever they did.

    Federal judges are for life. No one can touch them no matter what they do, not even the president. Muni judges run for election but are routinely re elected unless a well organized well funded group gets rid of them.

    Judges make the laws now.

    The Constitution was overall a pretty darn good effort–amazing actually.

    But the left–really minoritarians (not the old left)–found the hole in it–Article 3. And they’ve been driving trucks–increasing bigger and bigger trucks–through it ever sense.

    Republican governance is basically gone.

    ~~~

    I think it might have been possible to have republican governance and judicial review.

    But it really requires a hard regime that keeps judges from thinking they are philosopher kings with a right to govern. For some reason, the lawyer–and hence–judge mentality is that they are special people, an attitude that is an anathema of solid republican–and hence good–governance.

    Off the top of my head:
    — some sort of explicit oath to defer to all legitimate republican decision making
    — terms, no lifetime appointments
    *severe* sanction–death or explusion from the polity–for overreach
    — a tradition of the people to jealously defend themselves–impeachment and imposition of penalty–for judicial overreach

    But that’s all “redesign”. What’s required now is outright explicit defiance. We need people in the republican branches who are willing to defy and punish judicial imcursions into their legitimate powers.

    Little remembered is the fact Jared Loughner also killed a federal judge. This judge had bankrupted a local rancher of many generations by recently ruling that the rancher had violated the civil rights of the illegals when he held them at gunpoint until the Border Patrol showed up, and owed them punitive damages.

    It was said locally that if Loughner had only killed the judge he might have gotten a medal.

    I'm curious: Has anyone (with an audience; not me!) ever made the point that so-called busing represents a colossal amount of wasted fossil fuels (not just via combustion while driving, but those needed to build, maintain, and repair buses – tyres, filters, belts...), contributes to the already inhuman congestion of the roads, and increase pollution of the air?

    If no one has ever, why the heck not?

    Is it just another case of the batshit loony and monstrously evil GloboHomo racket, like the self-styled environmentalists who just love-love-love overpopulation via immigration and all its horrors? I suppose Negroes' insatiable hunger for white children to molest is like Pre-American Americans' rapaciousness, more important than avoiding ecological disaster and the human misery of life in an anthill on our way to fighting Lord Humungus for gasoline. Thus, pointing out the inevitable consequences is verboten and futile.

    The Left would turn Yellowstone into high density housing for all of Bangladesh if it meant they could flip a few red states.

    Would someone point out where this strategy of “You do X, but say Y!” has ever worked in modern American politics? Again, masturbation in lieu of accomplishing something.

    Well sure, of course, I’m aware of adblocker options. I elect not to avail myself of them all for the sake of one website. Because when it comes to a rain of ads, takimag is the worst I’ve ever encountered. The the worst. I mean, I’m thinking, okay, okay, I get the message! I’ll buy, I’ll buy!

    I have yet to see any free software that comes without strings attached. Strings in the way of third party agreements. I suspect that most, if not all, of the junk email I receive – and possibly the 5+ robocalls every single day – can be traced back to that fine-print third-party business attached to all that “free stuff”.

    So thanks for the suggestion, but no.

    Takimag just needs to allow folks the option of paying some other way than PayPal.
