The top European video game developer at the moment is CD Projekt Red of Poland, creator of The Witcher and now Cyberpunk 2077.

Not surprisingly, the volunteer auxiliary witch sniffers are suspicious of the Poles:

2 / 17 is a HateStat.

A HateStat is even worse than a HateFact, although not quite as racist as a HateGraph.

    a reference to the far-right “black crime stats”

    Any reference at all to black crime stats is “far-right” or worse.

  4. The reason things are bad and keep getting worse, is because too many Really Smart white guys cooperate with the Usual Suspects who hate our guts.

    At best, most Really Smart whites are indifferent to our fate.

    You have a hostile powerful group whose clever people hate us, and our group’s clever class is proud of never being on our side. This explains the rapid collapse of White societies.

    The Really Smart Whites had a moral obligation to the group that gave birth to them, that nurtured them, that provided a superstructure in which they could thrive.

    They paid that back with cold-blooded indifference.

    This is true but the whole GamerGate imbroglio made white nerds realise they were considered the enemy when before they thought they were part of the coalition of the fringes.

    This has led to a massive red pilling of white male nerds. But they still can't speak out without destroying their lives.

    Thus the cycle endlessly repeats, nobody respectable will say certain things and so the media et al can say 'See, nobody respectable will say these things, only crazy people and skinheads say them. You're not crazy or a skinhead are you?'.

    The mass psychosis that has gripped young women and girls on social media and led to much overt anti-white animus and immigrants acting like ingrate interlopers and aggressors has also led to a tipping process.

    "Whites" have never been remotely cohesive. You may recall 1861-1865, 1914-1918 or 1939-1945 as very stark examples of this in recent times. Even during the great British Empire, class mobility was almost nonexistent, which obviously contributed to a lack of ethnic loyalty.

    The reason things are bad and keep getting worse, is because too many Really Smart white guys cooperate with the Usual Suspects who hate our guts.

    This is primarily because those Really Smart Whites are told that there is The Smart Way that smart people must think and they have very hard time shaking this.

    I saw this in college all the time. People have a very hard time with the idea of the establishment being flat wrong. On some level they assume that the establishment must at least be mostly true. It couldn't be that all those experts are dishonest. Only certain personality types are able to see through the blinds.

    I have seen this in conservatives that oppose the establishment. They still absorb a lot of the establishment messaging. Mainstream conservatism assumes a lot of liberalism is actually true but differs in its prescriptions. You can find articles by conservatives on how since we know that race doesn't exist it must be Democrat programs that hold back Blacks. Are Democrats managing Africa?

    The Really Smart Whites had a moral obligation to the group that gave birth to them, that nurtured them, that provided a superstructure in which they could thrive.

    A combination of greed and being told that race doesn't exist. Both liberals and Christians teach paint theory which means there isn't really a racial group that they owe. Liberals go even further and teach that Whites caused the third world and ruined world harmony. White people as a group are depicted as a criminal organization.

    In every social hierarchy, you hate the people immediately below you. And you hate them more if they birthed you.

    30 years ago it was the working class getting hammered by immigration, outsourcing, and free trade. The middle class responded by virtue/status-signaling their disdain for the despicable bigots who were unhappy their jobs and communities were being destroyed.

    Now it's the middle class getting hammered. (As anyone could have predicted.) The working class (what's left of it) doesn't care. Why should they? Meanwhile the upper class is busy virtue/status-signaling about despicable bigots...

    You will end up with a standard 'Latin American' type society with a tiny group of super-wealthy people lording it over a vast sea of poverty.

    "Is statistics racist because it finds problematic patterns or because minorities cannot master it?"

    Thinking in percentiles is difficult for even otherwise numerate, intelligent people. Thinking in raw quantities is much easier: one, two, three, many. It's why most commenters are impressed with a CoronaHoax fakevax boasting 94.1% success because it's only 5.7% less effective than their immune systems if you do simple arithmetic: 99.8 - 94.1 = 5.7. Yay, we saved gramma!

    Wrong. For the elite few who can think in percentiles, the fake vax is 30 times worse at conquering the sniffles than your average Boomer immune system and more than 300 times worse than your average GenX.

    Tldr: percentiles be rayciss and sheet.

    The FBI crime stat reference has become a channer meme and channer memes are all over this game. So yes, it was a deliberate reference, you can tell by the numbers and the way it's phrased. However, having become an edgy channer joke, the person who wrote it probably wasn't very conservative or filled with animus towards blacks or African-Americans.

    Hilariously there is a reference to the same stats on Star Trek Voyager from long before it became a meme.

    Two different things.

    Yes, at the personal protection level, it's black males--say 15-34?--2% of the population, committing about half the murders whom you really need to steer clear of.

    But from the perspective of the minoritarian blood libel against white people--"racism!", "structural racism!", "Black Lives Matter", "police are hunting down black people", etc. etc.--the mathematically proper debunking is Steve's numbers. 55.9/13.4 / 44.1/86.6 = 8.19 => blacks 8 times as murderous as non-blacks.

    ~~

    BTW the male/female is of interest in debunking the BLM nonsense. No one every expresses any outrage that time after time the cops are killing ... men. Everyone understands why--it's because men are considerably, an order of magnitude, more violent. People take that as pretty much the sun coming up in the East.

    But, of course, that's the same reason the police kill blacks more. Black men are about as more murderously violent relative to non-black men as men are relative to women.

    Yet, the police don't kill blacks at an enhanced rate anywhere near their 8x enhanced murder rate, but a piddly 2-3X rate that really dishonors blacks considerable contribution to criminal violence.

    The FBI crime stat reference has become a channer meme and channer memes are all over this game. So yes, it was a deliberate reference, you can tell by the numbers and the way it's phrased. However, having become an edgy channer joke, the person who wrote it probably wasn't very conservative or filled with animus towards blacks or African-Americans.

    Hilariously there is a reference to the same stats on Star Trek Voyager from long before it became a meme.

    Voyager once featured a searing depiction of black-on-white violence:

  34. I’m afraid I don’t quite get it. Does 2/17 refer to a specific statistic? There are lots of statistics, and they change every year!

    Or is the meme simply noting that some small percentage X of the population is responsible for some large part Y of the problem, so that 13/50, or 10/80 (Benkarans!), or any random X/Y would also all count?

    The 13% needs fixing. It’s young males or about 4%.
     
    Two different things.

    Yes, at the personal protection level, it's black males--say 15-34?--2% of the population, committing about half the murders whom you really need to steer clear of.

    But from the perspective of the minoritarian blood libel against white people--"racism!", "structural racism!", "Black Lives Matter", "police are hunting down black people", etc. etc.--the mathematically proper debunking is Steve's numbers. 55.9/13.4 / 44.1/86.6 = 8.19 => blacks 8 times as murderous as non-blacks.

    ~~

    BTW the male/female is of interest in debunking the BLM nonsense. No one every expresses any outrage that time after time the cops are killing ... men. Everyone understands why--it's because men are considerably, an order of magnitude, more violent. People take that as pretty much the sun coming up in the East.

    But, of course, that's the same reason the police kill blacks more. Black men are about as more murderously violent relative to non-black men as men are relative to women.

    Yet, the police don't kill blacks at an enhanced rate anywhere near their 8x enhanced murder rate, but a piddly 2-3X rate that really dishonors blacks considerable contribution to criminal violence.

    This is primarily because those Really Smart Whites are told that there is The Smart Way that smart people must think and they have very hard time shaking this.

    I saw this in college all the time. People have a very hard time with the idea of the establishment being flat wrong. On some level they assume that the establishment must at least be mostly true. It couldn’t be that all those experts are dishonest. Only certain personality types are able to see through the blinds.

    I have seen this in conservatives that oppose the establishment. They still absorb a lot of the establishment messaging. Mainstream conservatism assumes a lot of liberalism is actually true but differs in its prescriptions. You can find articles by conservatives on how since we know that race doesn’t exist it must be Democrat programs that hold back Blacks. Are Democrats managing Africa?

    The Really Smart Whites had a moral obligation to the group that gave birth to them, that nurtured them, that provided a superstructure in which they could thrive.

    A combination of greed and being told that race doesn’t exist. Both liberals and Christians teach paint theory which means there isn’t really a racial group that they owe. Liberals go even further and teach that Whites caused the third world and ruined world harmony. White people as a group are depicted as a criminal organization.

It’s why most commenters are impressed with a CoronaHoax fakevax boasting 94.1% success because it’s only 5.7% less effective than their immune systems if you do simple arithmetic: 99.8 – 94.1 = 5.7.

    They only tested symptomatic infection. It prevented symptomatic infection and also severe infection very efficiently, and the Russian and Chinese vaccines seem to do that, too. The ratio of symtomatic to asymptomatic infection in people of roughly the same age group as the trial population is around 80 %, so clearly, your numbers are wrong.

    It doesn't prevent aysmptomatic infection, but it's way, way better than a naive immune system at preventing hospitalizations and death.

    If you're youngish it's okay to go without the vaccine, for anyone 35 + it would be idiotic.

    Maybe you were against the Polio vaccine too, because only on age group was in danger and most infections were mild without consequences?

    This is not any surprise to me.

    In the newslinks section there is a story from judicial watch via zero hedge about some high profile convicted murderer hired by the D.C. government for a violence de-escalation public relations program arrested for a brand new fresh additional murder. This is not a surprise either.

    A surprise is like Gomer Pyle goin’ surprise! Surprise! Surprise! On the television show when he meant it not like on the internet meme where it’s sarcastic. Maybe the person writing the story was being sarcastic?

    LOL. Memes don't change ANYTHING. They are just good for a laugh. Why do people think they are so smart or rebellious for creating an "edgy" meme? Reasoned arguments at least may convince someone. Nothing will come out of nothing. Young people need to stop making "memes" and go protest out in the streets, or get a gun and prepare themselves for what's coming, and try to (re-)build society.

    It's soon going to be like the Old West for Whites, only this time Whites are the Indians.

    You’re right. Propaganda posters never worked. That’s why so many countries never used them.

    Your handle is apt.

    Reasoned arguments at least may convince someone.

    Sure, dialectic can work. Rhetoric also works. Thanks for agreeing with Aristotle.

    Nothing will come out of nothing.

    If the various memes were truly useless, why would SJW’s expend so much energy trying to suppress them? This little number / number meme buried deep in a new game should have no meaning, if you are correct, but we know about it because why? Because gamer SJW’s got their panties all wadded up over even a slight reference to 13 – 50.

    tl;dr
    You’re wrong.

    Young people need to stop making “memes” and go protest out in the streets, or get a gun and prepare themselves for what’s coming, and try to (re-)build society.

    Huh. I don’t recall you FedPoasting before. Is this new?

    Well the ADL better add FBI crime stats to their Hate Database.

    Should probably also add Carl Gauss just to be safe.

    "Is statistics racist because it finds problematic patterns or because minorities cannot master it?"

    Thinking in percentiles is difficult for even otherwise numerate, intelligent people. Thinking in raw quantities is much easier: one, two, three, many. It's why most commenters are impressed with a CoronaHoax fakevax boasting 94.1% success because it's only 5.7% less effective than their immune systems if you do simple arithmetic: 99.8 - 94.1 = 5.7. Yay, we saved gramma!

    Wrong. For the elite few who can think in percentiles, the fake vax is 30 times worse at conquering the sniffles than your average Boomer immune system and more than 300 times worse than your average GenX.

    Tldr: percentiles be rayciss and sheet.

    ‘It’s why most commenters are impressed with a CoronaHoax fakevax boasting 94.1% success because it’s only 5.7% less effective than their immune systems ‘

    They only tested symptomatic infection. It prevented symptomatic infection and also severe infection very efficiently, and the Russian and Chinese vaccines seem to do that, too. The ratio of symtomatic to asymptomatic infection in people of roughly the same age group as the trial population is around 80 %, so clearly, your numbers are wrong.

    It doesn’t prevent aysmptomatic infection, but it’s way, way better than a naive immune system at preventing hospitalizations and death.

    If you’re youngish it’s okay to go without the vaccine, for anyone 35 + it would be idiotic.

    Maybe you were against the Polio vaccine too, because only on age group was in danger and most infections were mild without consequences?

    You old nerds need to realize that 13 - 50 is a meme that packs a punch, while all that blah blah blah "well, AKSHULLY" nerd talk you guys generate just makes everyone around you zone out or fall asleep. Ever notice how even your oldest adult children's eyes start to glaze over after the 2nd paragraph of one of your endless pre-recorded Dad-advice speeches? Yeah, it's like that. Only more so.

    Yeah, except that I had to read through this thread a ways to understand WTH the LOLs were for on the meme above. It was more like an inside joke, so I don’t know how that one reaches so many people.

    True #378, as an iSteve reader, I should have been one of the 1st to get it, but, without the % signs, I had no idea of the point of that meme.

    I get your point in general… if you are still reading … this is my 3rd paragraph. ;-}

    I checked out that ADL page, Adam. Man, you've gotta really watch what you write. Some of us need some of these numbers occasionally.

    BTW, for anyone else reading, in my other comment, I was referring to Mr. McKenna's meme near the top of this thread. Can someone figure out the point from the numbers, if he's not very aware already? Maybe I need glasses or missed something in the picture itself.

    Well, not just in the way but actively stopping it. I you remember the scene from the commercial it's taken from it's a pretty neat subversion imo. This particular meme is more of an inside joke than a recruitment poster but it still has its place in reinforcing an idea.


    For example here are some historical NSA posters about secrecy. These are purely internal and aimed at the staff to illustrate and reinforce important ideas. https://slate.com/technology/2018/06/nsas-declassified-cold-war-propaganda-posters-are-a-bizarre-delight.html

    Agreed. I should have chosen my words a little better. I don’t remember that commercial, I probably never saw it. I haven’t had a television for about 20 years and I block the advertisements from the interwebs. On the rare occasion that I watch TV I’m somewhat amazed by the commercials I see. They’re more abundant and different than they used to be.

    Thanks for the link. Interesting posters. I find this one to be especially telling…
