To get hired as a professor at the University of California you now have to submit a statement explaining how you will advance the worship of the university’s (and perhaps universe’s) supreme good: Diversity Equity Inclusion To You.

The UC system released the rubric for scoring an applicants’ DEITY statement (a.k.a., the Diversity Inclusion Equity, You Trolls statement or DIE, YT). Please note that only after candidates are winnowed based on their DEITY scores (a.k.a., Inclusion Equity Diversity or IED scores) will their professional qualifications to teach physical chemistry or ancient Greek or whatever be evaluated.

Economist John Cochrane explains the DEITY scoring system and what NOT to do: i.e., do NOT attempt to maintain a shred of self-respect. Your racial self-abasement is not a side effect, it’s a requirement:

My friends (anonymous!) in the UC system report that the criteria are clear and the word is out: Don’t try to be clever. Don’t quote Martin Luther King, on judgement by content of character rather than color of skin. Don’t write vibrant essays on the importance of ideological, political or religious diversity. Don’t quote federal anti-discrimination law, the 14th Amendment, and the UC’s own statements of non-discrimination in hiring. Don’t write about class diversity, diverse experiences of immigrants, such as people born under communism in Eastern Europe or the amazingly diverse experience of the colleague you just hired who came from a small village in China. Don’t write about the importance of freedom of speech, or anti-communist loyalty oaths in the 1950s. Are you thinking of writing about your hilbilly elegy background, your time in the military, your support for gun rights and Trump, and how this background and viewpoint would enrich a faculty and staff that likely has absolutely zero people like you? Don’t bother. We all know what “diversity” means. And, heaven forbid, don’t express distaste for the project. The staff are on to all these tricks, and each of these specifically will earn you a downgrade.

  1. A society that rejected real universities would surely lose too much to make the suggestion serious, but these aren’t real universities. What could we possibly lose by attacking their debt-holdings, their property rights, and their credibility?

    In retrospect, it's clear that universities like Berkeley caught their fatal illness generations ago. Once upon a time this place was among the foremost institutions in my field; they trained almost everyone. For my whole career those days have been a distant memory.

    Francophonysim, the heedless buildout of the administration, the retooling of the academic apparatus into a propaganda organ of the intelligentsia: All of that came first. Now the Diversity Inclusion Equity garbage -- the doubtful diluted Maoist political sloganeering that has been prioritized over everything serious -- is just some unimportant household virus proliferating in the immunocompromised patient. Just like a stupid virus, it doesn't know when to stop eating. It only knows it must compete with all the other devouring microbes in the dying organism. Sooner or later these pathogens will kill their host and bring an end to themselves in the process.

    Alas that day might be a long way off. And until then it is just going to be escalating insanity as Berkeley and its peer institutions rush onwards eager to find new and unanticipated ways to disgrace themselves and burn through all that remains of their cultural capital.

  2. We need separation.

    White men need to wake up and smell the coffee. Jewish minoritarianism is a cancer and it is eating up institution after institution in a way that would have been unbelievable even ten years back. It’s a very different nation than when i was a kid–or even in college–and not at all in a good way.

    White men need to pull their heads out of the sand and demand their right to live and breathe as free white men. Which means having our own nation, under our own traditional Western norms.

    Let the minoritarians do their thing as they see fit. But they have no right to enslave and abuse us. We must insist on it. And be willing to fight and die for it.

    Good luck with that. I haven't seen a clue about how it might work, practically speaking. For a start, even if you were able to carve out territory somewhere, they're coming after you. That much has already happened in many places.

    Secondly, we're at the phase now where freedom itself is considered a racist construct, and once that epithet has been applied, all else falls before it. The Ruling Tribe is itself every bit as racist as the National Socialists ever were--the evidence is everywhere--and thanks to their near-complete stranglehold on the flow of information, they even have most white people welcoming their own demise.

    When I say 'good luck' I mean it, without any sarcasm.

    Possible futures:

    US loses world hegemony. Iron fisted government (probably Leftist) maintains order in our current borders.
    US loses world hegemony and breaks apart. Multiple civil wars. A breakup of the US cannot be peaceful.
    US loses world hegemony and we stay at our desks and muddle through to an increasingly peaceful and prosperous (though increasingly stupid) future, ala Steve Pinker.

    Our ancestors came here as settlers to seek their fortunes. By fighting every step of the way to conquer this land they became the American people. It was a glorious journey from Plymouth rock to the Moon.

    But one can't relive past glories - the day in front of you is always a landing at Plymouth rock. Events will force our current issues to a head in time, and I for one look forward to a showdown with our enemies. I don't relish muddling through.

    "White men need to pull their heads out of the sand and demand their right to live and breathe as free white men."

    maybe they shouldn't have fought the Axis then. until the majority of european men say out loud "Maybe we were on the wrong side in World War 2" or some sort of statement like this, Jews will control everything.

    perhaps this requires the boomers dying off. because you'll never, ever get them to reverse course on the Jewish question. which means Jews win, every time. as long as european men born before 1970 or so are the largest cohort, you'll never get a critical mass of people who are ready to reject the status quo.

    only in the future, maybe 2040, when guys born after 2000 are being ground into dust by their Jewish rulers, will there even be the conditions required for such a thing. those guys won't have any attachment to WW2, or America 1.0, and will be sick and tired of the constant Jewish conditioning and Nazi talk and Holocaust training.

    until then, you're just gonna have to obey what the Jews say. so now it's, want to get hired? write an essay about how you're garbage, european man. then we might consider hiring you. we control your universities. your cities. your country. and if you object, a thousand boomer european men are ready to reflexively defend their Jewish rulers, shout you down for being an "anti-semite", and tell you "That's not what we fought the Nazis for."

    AD,

    You should check out Z-Man's blog. Steve and his comment board are more like a debate club where newbie Joe Normies notice what's happening and then discuss or make fun of it. Over at Z-Man, we're trying to figure out what to DO about whites losing our freedom. Admittedly, we're still trying to figure it out. (And no, it's not buying beans and rice and a bunker in Wyoming.)

    Forget the Red Dawn fantasy. We need to start meeting in the real world. We need to start getting small groups together. We're dissidents now, but we can still operate. We need to start laying the groundwork for a community, a community that punch back and protect its own. That doesn't mean Yugoslavia or some white homeland (though that would be the ultimate goal for generations down the line). It means a more and more autonomous community within the larger society.

    Look at the examples of Jews, Muslims, the Amish and Mormons. That's how you start. But it can lead to great things - Israel, anyone.

    These compelled statements of fealty to diversity are the equivalent of 50's era loyalty oaths, which would be illegal under current law.

    There are at least three grounds that jump out: (1) California has a statute that prohibits hiring based on political views; (2) the First Amendment is violated when a state actor like the the UC system compels speech; and (3) the compelled statements are clearly designed to have a disparate impact on the hiring of whites by forcing them to grovel and renounce their race.

    It wouldn't. We'd have a "Red Republic" that would consist of Middle America and the South, while "Blue Republic" would be the East Coast and West Coast. That'd be one weird-looking country.

    Even when you carve up regions, it'd be strange. Like creating a "Blue" territory in Cook County, but "Red" territory in the rest of Illinois. Or creating "Blue" territories (Houston, Dallas, and Austin) in "Red" Texas.

    Given how interconnected the entire country is in many ways (roads, bridges, railways, commerce, governance, currency, media), how exactly do you create 2 distinct countries anyway?

    Even if you get separation, so what?

    The elites of a "Red Republic" would push policies like tax cuts, deregulation, drilling for oil, fighting wars overseas, spending trillions on the military, "right to work," cutting Medicare&Medicaid, etc. How is any of that worth fighting and dying for?

    The majority of the Black population lives in the South, with a huge fraction of Hispanics in Texas and the Southwest. So "Red Republic" would be very racially diverse, with an especially large fraction of Blacks. Good luck with that.

    It's not going to be simple, like carving out one territory for the Czech Republic and another territory for Slovakia. "Blue" and "Red" are too intertwined for any type of clean separation.

    Yugoslavia might be a better model. Except that Yugoslavia had less than 25 million people, while the U.S. has 330 million residents. So our Civil War would be like Yugoslavia x 13.

    You think the average American has the toughness and grit to endure that?

    America is nation full of SJWs who constantly whine about microaggressions.... Millenials who are always running for "safe" spaces.... office drones who push paper all day..... suburban "soccer" parents who can't go one day without their Mokachino..... wimpy lobbyists in business suits.... vegan hipsters in gentrifying neighborhoods.... Mentally ill men who think they're women....

    These people are supposed to fight? LOL.

    It's not just the "Blue" team that won't be able to fight. Just look at all the deadhead drug addicts in Applachia, the Ozarks, and the Rustbelt..... Or the walking-blimp White Texans who are constantly cramming their fat mouths at Cracker Barrel..... Or the "Sons of the South" who sit on their bloated behinds all day watching LSU and Ole Miss.....

    It turns out that the "neo- Nazi" leader of the "The Base" is actually a longtime federal informant and asset. Rinaldo Nazzaro, the guy in question, is certainly not genuinely a separatist. Instead he is a plant, a fed, a "source", a PCI, or whatever else U.S. intelligence agencies call their undercover agents.

    So, yeah, you're right. Any attempt today to persuade white, middle-class Americans to move collectively to any area in the USA is met with ferocious opposition from the FBI and every other U.S. intelligence agency.

    And, federal opposition in the future would definitely include mass incarceration and mass murder.

    It works the same way it works for other groups such as Jew, Muslims and Mormons. You start organizing, very quietly and in very small groups at first. (Remember, we're dissidents now.) Your groups grow or merge with other groups. You pool resources, you work with the local community, you start to form your own community.

    That community starts to advocate and protect its own. That community starts to push back. You make the "cost of occupation" higher and higher until other groups - especially that ((group)) - starts to back off.

    No Red Dawn fantasy. This will take work. It will take time. I'm not old, but I probably won't see the latter part of what I just wrote. So what. The alternative is to be a coward, to let my children and future children become helots without lifting a finger. No thanks.

    We gave a young trainee a project to think though the potential inpact and timing of climate change on various aspects of our business. It was pretty much the party line, and of course everyone nodded in agreement during her presentation as she went through the seriousness of the subject and the relatively short time we had to take corrective actions before it was too late.

    A few days later, it was time to shadow me, which meant some one-on-one time to get to know one another, so I opened with praising her work, but then asking what she was doing here ... that if things were really so dire, it was kind of pointless to take a job as a trainee, and she should go out and enjoy the rest of her short life while that was still possible. She then sheepishly admitted that she didn't really believe everything she parrotted, but she felt pressure to give the team what she thought (correctly, for most) we wanted to hear.

    That changed the dynamic entirely, and the rest of that afternoon was guidance and tips on operating as an actual thinking guerilla sceptic in a world full of mind-numbed robots without losing the ability to pay the rent. I count this as my good deed for 2020.

    IIRC, my understanding is that California schools have been doing something like this for a long while now, except with scholarship candidates. If you apply to USC film school, for example, your application will require a diversity statement if you want to apply for financial aid. Though, it’s possible it was listed as optional* at the time I checked. Those kinds of things struck me as obliquely targeted to white applicants — perhaps even Asians — as a subtle form of discrimination, perhaps done purposely in the hopes the wrong candidate takes a hint and applies elsewhere. It’s typical of how liberals preach one thing but contort their rhetoric to get the opposite: “I’m against discrimination; therefore, I must discriminate against you to ensure diversity, inclusion, and non-discrimination.”

Serving on university or college committees related to equity and inclusion…

    Not that I expect the Trump DOJ to do anything about it, but it looks like this policy may be in violation of a 1967 SCOTUS decision:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Robel

    United States v. Robel, 389 U.S. 258 (1967), was a case heard by the Supreme Court of the United States. The court ruled that the United States government cannot deprive the people of constitutional rights, even in the interests of national security. Specifically, the right of free association.

    The petitioner, Eugene Frank Robel, who worked at Todd Shipyards in Seattle, was indicted in May 21, 1963 for being a member of the Communist Party of the United States (CPUSA) and thus affiliated with it, without being registered with the Subversive Activities Control Board in violation of the McCarran Internal Security Act section 5 (a) (I) (D). Since the act required CPUSA to register as a Communist Party, he was told because of his affiliation with the Party, he also had to register as well, and that he could no longer work at the shipyard because of his affiliation with the Communist Party; Todd Shipyards had been designated a “defense” facility, otherwise known as federal employment, which was illegal under the McCarran Act. Robel appealed his conviction to the Supreme Court.

    The Court found the McCarran Internal Security Act violates the defendant’s right to free association that is guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    This makes me "think" I was wrong when I criticized commenter Intelligent Dasein for writing this:

    … there is no such thing as free thought. Each man thinks as he must, as the conditions of the moment determine him.
     
    People are very good at "thinking" what they "think" they are supposed to "think."

    That is what they will do when they write their DEITY statements. Dare I say, that is what many people do when they walk into their churches, synagogues and mosques.

    It is what Soviets did with regard to Lysenkoism and when they clapped for Stalin until the buzzer sounded.

    It wouldn’t. We’d have a “Red Republic” that would consist of Middle America and the South, while “Blue Republic” would be the East Coast and West Coast. That’d be one weird-looking country.

    Even when you carve up regions, it’d be strange. Like creating a “Blue” territory in Cook County, but “Red” territory in the rest of Illinois. Or creating “Blue” territories (Houston, Dallas, and Austin) in “Red” Texas.

    Given how interconnected the entire country is in many ways (roads, bridges, railways, commerce, governance, currency, media), how exactly do you create 2 distinct countries anyway?

    Even if you get separation, so what?

    The elites of a “Red Republic” would push policies like tax cuts, deregulation, drilling for oil, fighting wars overseas, spending trillions on the military, “right to work,” cutting Medicare&Medicaid, etc. How is any of that worth fighting and dying for?

    The majority of the Black population lives in the South, with a huge fraction of Hispanics in Texas and the Southwest. So “Red Republic” would be very racially diverse, with an especially large fraction of Blacks. Good luck with that.

    It’s not going to be simple, like carving out one territory for the Czech Republic and another territory for Slovakia. “Blue” and “Red” are too intertwined for any type of clean separation.

    Yugoslavia might be a better model. Except that Yugoslavia had less than 25 million people, while the U.S. has 330 million residents. So our Civil War would be like Yugoslavia x 13.

    You think the average American has the toughness and grit to endure that?

    America is nation full of SJWs who constantly whine about microaggressions…. Millenials who are always running for “safe” spaces…. office drones who push paper all day….. suburban “soccer” parents who can’t go one day without their Mokachino….. wimpy lobbyists in business suits…. vegan hipsters in gentrifying neighborhoods…. Mentally ill men who think they’re women….

    These people are supposed to fight? LOL.

    It’s not just the “Blue” team that won’t be able to fight. Just look at all the deadhead drug addicts in Applachia, the Ozarks, and the Rustbelt….. Or the walking-blimp White Texans who are constantly cramming their fat mouths at Cracker Barrel….. Or the “Sons of the South” who sit on their bloated behinds all day watching LSU and Ole Miss…..

    It is a bit of a mystery. I think one dirty little secret that is rarely discussed is that lots of ordinary corporate employees and retirees are watching the value of their employer-matched funds in their 401K retirement funds or IRAs going up and up in what appears to be an overvalued bubbling stock market, and so will waive all moral principles in favor of the status quo and of corporate hegemony.

    Remember that the biggest reversal ever in US government policy came between the great Wall St. crash of late 19929 to 1932 in which the stock market lost 89% of its value.

    The next 7 years under the FDR administration brought a whole slew of new programs like the Social Security Adminstration and the FHA and the liberalization of US global trade policy that still largely define the structure of the US today, plus the repeal of Prohibition.

    https://media1.tenor.com/images/8b20286c93b8a09b07e9b0c18598357e/tenor.gif?itemid=14694542

    Hence when people say the economy is doing well, they often mean the stock index funds are doing well,or that real estate is increasing in price, regardless of whether more better jobs are being created or whether huge tranches of the US which were formerly prosperous are now impoverished.

    In truth, neither side is up for Civil War style slaughter to impose its will on the other. But that just means if one side--my side--says, "Hey, we're had enough. Leave us alone or its going to get hot." ... separation ought to be possible.

    Separation is the actually the polite--each do what you want--compromise position. It's unacceptability to the left is because minoritarianism is a totalitarian ideology--demanding precisely that white guys, not be allowed to defect, demanding they be slaves.

    We graduates of fifty years ago might beg to differ, but I have little doubt that you are right on the money about today's identical cogs in the machine being built for our enslavement.

    But I really just want to join in your mockery of UCLA: fifty years ago, the place did not really register at all - it was just another southern California party school, one which limped badly behind the at least socially acceptable USC. There was one fraternity at Cal which was almost exclusively the reserve of upper-class Angelinos (mostly from Pasadena) who were more scathing than anyone else about the inadequacies of the college world in their native climes.

    But aren't matters rather different today? At least, while the Berkeley campus sits nowadays in the middle of a slum, UCLA is surrounded by some of the finest residential areas in, not just southern California, but the world. I am told too that its academic rating is beginning to put Berkeley in the shade. Admittedly, it was a UCLA'er who told me this - maybe you can tell me that he, um, exaggerates?

    At present there is still a marked paucity of imagination when it comes to the necessary and inevitable issues of Separation and Partition, which must and will happen. They do not necessarily entail a civil war, or indeed fighting or bloodshed of any kind. They do not even entail a breakup of the political entity known as the United States. In future, pace a Reg Caesar anagram, they may simply be the Un-tied States.

    There's a great deal of imaginative political thinking that simply hasn't been done yet: a re-imagining of federalism, a reconceptualization of things like states' rights or freedom of association, a re-imagining of the internal political boundaries and internal political structures of the country, a critical re-appraisal of the Articles of Confederation or the arguments of the Anti-Federalists, a re-examination of what and where a "state" really is or where it should be, a critical and intellectually serious deconstruction of Magic Statue Poem and its mythos, an acceptance and appraisal of the fact that post-1965 immigration has effectively erased the entire previous history of this country, that American history has effectively ceased to exist for political purposes, that current boundaries and entities are therefore up for re-modeling, and so on.

    The America of the Stars and Stripes and backyard barbecues and baseball and this "voting" nonsense is dead and gone. Never coming back. All that stuff was for a former people, who want their own country now. Give the old lass a good rowdy wake and a proper Mass of Christian Burial and sixty days' mourning, and then start thinking about what lies ahead.

    Actually, it's unacceptable to them because they can't (due to a combination of lack of relevant skills and work ethic and the fact that they're concentrated in urban enclaves that produce nothing but paper pushing, stock trading and trouble) provide the basic necessities of life for themselves.

    AD,

    You're one of the more insightful contributors here but I have to agree with TGoBM. Peaceful separation will not be allowed. We aren't allowed to have anything of our own anymore. We will be followed where ever we go so that our productivity may be taken from us.

    Further, I do not believe we should be inclined to concede any part of this nation to anyone else for a variety of reasons that I won't bother with now. I have gone back and forth with smart people like Audacious Epigone who insist peaceful separation is possible. It isn't. The other side isn't peaceful and we don't owe them anything.

    When the day comes when our backs are against the wall and we do fight back, there are two options: Push them over the cliff into the sea, or perish along with Western Civilization as it was known.

    There is no compromise.

    There are at least three grounds that jump out: (1) California has a statute that prohibits hiring based on political views; (2) the First Amendment is violated when a state actor like the the UC system compels speech; and (3) the compelled statements are clearly designed to have a disparate impact on the hiring of whites by forcing them to grovel and renounce their race.

    maybe they shouldn’t have fought the Axis then. until the majority of european men say out loud “Maybe we were on the wrong side in World War 2” or some sort of statement like this, Jews will control everything.

    perhaps this requires the boomers dying off. because you’ll never, ever get them to reverse course on the Jewish question. which means Jews win, every time. as long as european men born before 1970 or so are the largest cohort, you’ll never get a critical mass of people who are ready to reject the status quo.

    only in the future, maybe 2040, when guys born after 2000 are being ground into dust by their Jewish rulers, will there even be the conditions required for such a thing. those guys won’t have any attachment to WW2, or America 1.0, and will be sick and tired of the constant Jewish conditioning and Nazi talk and Holocaust training.

    until then, you’re just gonna have to obey what the Jews say. so now it’s, want to get hired? write an essay about how you’re garbage, european man. then we might consider hiring you. we control your universities. your cities. your country. and if you object, a thousand boomer european men are ready to reflexively defend their Jewish rulers, shout you down for being an “anti-semite”, and tell you “That’s not what we fought the Nazis for.”

  51. I attended UC Berkeley as an undergraduate and graduated in 1991 (honors). I was a straight white male then, and still am today!

    During my last year, I was the editor-in-chief of a campus literary journal called “Byzantium.” On the editorial board were three Asian women, one Jewish guy and another straight gentile man. The cover artist was a black female artist I knew and there was a genuine diversity of contributors. To help promote it, I organized a poetry reading on campus with Robert Hass, one of my professors, and Maxine Hong Kingston. I got drunk in the bathroom beforehand to ease the stage fright, along with the other white guy. Hass told me afterwards that he liked my stuff, which thrilled me.

    Printing required a meeting with a student officer to approve funding from the university. He was a clean-cut, preppy Asian man, either ethnic Chinese or Korean, and my pitch was that our journal was genuinely “diverse” insofar as it didn’t simply reflect a single identity group, of which there were a great many there even at the time. I wasn’t sure if it would fly, but fortunately it did and the launch party was a smash.

    However, I wonder if the same pitch, by a straight white male, would work there now. Doubtful. In fact, I wonder if they would even let me in today. I saw the writing on the California wall and got out a long time ago. As goes California, they say, so goes the nation.

    The Diversity Parkinson’s Law: “Diversity work expands to fill the time of the staff added to the diversity payroll.”

    Diversity professionals talk about how important diversity is, and since there is never enough diversity and no one can tell you exactly what it is, much less when you’ve reached “peak diversity” or if you’re even close, you can never have enough people to remind everyone how important it is. The more the staff, the more the diversity-talk. The more diversity-talk there is, ergo, the more important it is. Are you begin to grasp the circularity in play? Since the language of “diversity” is so nebulous, abstract and expansive, the work of “diversity” is simply the praising of diversity, or as they put it, “celebrating diversity.”

    Notice how much “diversity” work contrasts with most other kinds of university employment, a math professor, for example. A math professor isn’t paid to talk about how important mathematics is; he doesn’t have to. He just teaches people how to do mathematics because it is obvious how important mathematics is. You only hire as many math professors as you have students who want or need to learn mathematics; any additional math profs would have nothing to do. Or, take the custodian who cleans the classrooms and how quickly nasty things get without him: think what would happen to him if all he did was talk about how important it is to have tidy buildings but never emptied the trash cans.

    Off-topic, but important: Rogan replies to the controvery: https://youtu.be/P-KjcOQPVeI

    For the first time ever, the PC cultists might actually lose. You don't mess with Joe Rogan. You just don't. He has at least millions if not tens of millions of fanatical followers that love him, both from the UFC and from his comedian career.

    Here is the problem with picking a fight with MMA enthusiasts: they *like* to fight, and throwing punches is not the only way to fight. Let's just say, they love conflict. The PC cultists bit way, way more than they can chew here. They are poking a sleeping giant. Expect the entire MMA world and MMA fanbase to raly behind Rogan like rabid dogs.

The Ruling Tribe is itself every bit as racist as the National Socialists ever were--the evidence is everywhere--and thanks to their near-complete stranglehold on the flow of information, they even have most white people welcoming their own demise.

    It turns out that the “neo- Nazi” leader of the “The Base” is actually a longtime federal informant and asset. Rinaldo Nazzaro, the guy in question, is certainly not genuinely a separatist. Instead he is a plant, a fed, a “source”, a PCI, or whatever else U.S. intelligence agencies call their undercover agents.

    So, yeah, you’re right. Any attempt today to persuade white, middle-class Americans to move collectively to any area in the USA is met with ferocious opposition from the FBI and every other U.S. intelligence agency.

    And, federal opposition in the future would definitely include mass incarceration and mass murder.

    A few days later, it was time to shadow me, which meant some one-on-one time to get to know one another, so I opened with praising her work, but then asking what she was doing here … that if things were really so dire, it was kind of pointless to take a job as a trainee, and she should go out and enjoy the rest of her short life while that was still possible. She then sheepishly admitted that she didn’t really believe everything she parrotted, but she felt pressure to give the team what she thought (correctly, for most) we wanted to hear.

    That changed the dynamic entirely, and the rest of that afternoon was guidance and tips on operating as an actual thinking guerilla sceptic in a world full of mind-numbed robots without losing the ability to pay the rent. I count this as my good deed for 2020.

    Yes and no.

    I have made off colour jokes before, and had the person bitch at me. Once you get to know the person, behind closed doors many white people are not PC at all, especially older ones. But as you move younger, white people do get alot more PC, to the point where they get aggressively angry at even the mere whiff of racism.

    Rule of thumb: with people you know well, and in private settings, everything is fine. Around women, any POC, you have to be more careful. It's always "yes", "no", and all smiles.

    Women do usually appreciate being flirted with, or smiled at. Just have to be careful not to cross the line.

    In summary, you're not totally wrong that one can bog themselves down with imaginary chains. But, especially for younger white men, we do actually have to be cautious in certain circumstances.

    AD,

    You should check out Z-Man’s blog. Steve and his comment board are more like a debate club where newbie Joe Normies notice what’s happening and then discuss or make fun of it. Over at Z-Man, we’re trying to figure out what to DO about whites losing our freedom. Admittedly, we’re still trying to figure it out. (And no, it’s not buying beans and rice and a bunker in Wyoming.)

    Forget the Red Dawn fantasy. We need to start meeting in the real world. We need to start getting small groups together. We’re dissidents now, but we can still operate. We need to start laying the groundwork for a community, a community that punch back and protect its own. That doesn’t mean Yugoslavia or some white homeland (though that would be the ultimate goal for generations down the line). It means a more and more autonomous community within the larger society.

    Look at the examples of Jews, Muslims, the Amish and Mormons. That’s how you start. But it can lead to great things – Israel, anyone.

    There are at least three grounds that jump out: (1) California has a statute that prohibits hiring based on political views; (2) the First Amendment is violated when a state actor like the the UC system compels speech; and (3) the compelled statements are clearly designed to have a disparate impact on the hiring of whites by forcing them to grovel and renounce their race.

    It works the same way it works for other groups such as Jew, Muslims and Mormons. You start organizing, very quietly and in very small groups at first. (Remember, we’re dissidents now.) Your groups grow or merge with other groups. You pool resources, you work with the local community, you start to form your own community.

    That community starts to advocate and protect its own. That community starts to push back. You make the “cost of occupation” higher and higher until other groups – especially that ((group)) – starts to back off.

    I attended UC Berkeley as an undergraduate and graduated in 1991 (honors). I was a straight white male then, and still am today!

    During my last year, I was the editor-in-chief of a campus literary journal called "Byzantium." On the editorial board were three Asian women, one Jewish guy and another straight gentile man. The cover artist was a black female artist I knew and there was a genuine diversity of contributors. To help promote it, I organized a poetry reading on campus with Robert Hass, one of my professors, and Maxine Hong Kingston. I got drunk in the bathroom beforehand to ease the stage fright, along with the other white guy. Hass told me afterwards that he liked my stuff, which thrilled me.

    Printing required a meeting with a student officer to approve funding from the university. He was a clean-cut, preppy Asian man, either ethnic Chinese or Korean, and my pitch was that our journal was genuinely "diverse" insofar as it didn't simply reflect a single identity group, of which there were a great many there even at the time. I wasn't sure if it would fly, but fortunately it did and the launch party was a smash.

    However, I wonder if the same pitch, by a straight white male, would work there now. Doubtful. In fact, I wonder if they would even let me in today. I saw the writing on the California wall and got out a long time ago. As goes California, they say, so goes the nation.

    Good luck with that. I haven’t seen a clue about how it might work, practically speaking.

     

    It wouldn't. We'd have a "Red Republic" that would consist of Middle America and the South, while "Blue Republic" would be the East Coast and West Coast. That'd be one weird-looking country.

    Even when you carve up regions, it'd be strange. Like creating a "Blue" territory in Cook County, but "Red" territory in the rest of Illinois. Or creating "Blue" territories (Houston, Dallas, and Austin) in "Red" Texas.

    Given how interconnected the entire country is in many ways (roads, bridges, railways, commerce, governance, currency, media), how exactly do you create 2 distinct countries anyway?

    Even if you get separation, so what?

    The elites of a "Red Republic" would push policies like tax cuts, deregulation, drilling for oil, fighting wars overseas, spending trillions on the military, "right to work," cutting Medicare&Medicaid, etc. How is any of that worth fighting and dying for?

    The majority of the Black population lives in the South, with a huge fraction of Hispanics in Texas and the Southwest. So "Red Republic" would be very racially diverse, with an especially large fraction of Blacks. Good luck with that.

    It's not going to be simple, like carving out one territory for the Czech Republic and another territory for Slovakia. "Blue" and "Red" are too intertwined for any type of clean separation.

    Yugoslavia might be a better model. Except that Yugoslavia had less than 25 million people, while the U.S. has 330 million residents. So our Civil War would be like Yugoslavia x 13.

    You think the average American has the toughness and grit to endure that?

    Rip Van Walker is lost in the mid-90s somewhere. Even then, the character Oswalt portrayed is understood to be as big of a loser as the one he played, perfectly, in Young Adult. Anyone who thinks those are in any way representative is either kidding themselves or trying to pull a fast one on you.

  78. As ridiculous as this is, my impression is that departments still hire pretty much whoever they want within the diversity constraints imposed by the administrators. I doubt these statements will affect hiring much except in cases where the department wants it to. And I can’t see, say, the very highly ranked Econ department actually using this as a deciding factor and being willing to crash in the rankings. The market for the good candidates is competitive and if you target diversity when everyone else goes for brains you are doing a sort of anti-Moneyball. In fields that have math and stuff, the diversity is pretty much screened out by the time people get to the job market. Probably the main thing is that technical departments don’t have “enough” women. What probably happens there is they will mandate that women be placed a notch above where they belong (and some guys a notch below to compensate).

    I don’t have inside info so maybe I’m wrong about this, but I see them treating it as a perfunctory hurdle. It will only cost you a job if you aren’t willing to play along and write what you’re supposed to. But that’s the real problem with it. In essence, it’s a loyalty oath.

    At that moment, not only is separation possible, ANYTHING is possible. So at that point, why settle for separation? Deport fake Americans, fire all zampolits, restore freedom of association … that becomes the compromise position. Wokies don’t like it? Too late.

    Many, many years ago, applicants for high office in the United Kingdom - as well as professing loyalty to the Crown - had to undergo a formal 'Religious Test'. Basically, this meant affirming their faith to the established church, the protestant church, namely the Church of England.
    The explicit aim of this Test was to exclude Catholics, as well as 'dissenting protestants', and not to mention Jews.

    Replies: @Almost Missouri

    And … it worked pretty well for the United Kingdom. Under the Religious Test, the UK won every major war, gained a world-spanning empire and became the wealthiest, most powerful and most influential country on earth. And once the Religious Test was abolished, the country crested and is now cratering.

    OTOH, the Religious Tested-UK’s one big reversal, the loss of the American colonies, was to a breakaway republic that explicitly banned the Religious Test. But of course, there was an implicit assumption that “free white men” was good enough—they didn’t need to be Episcopalians too.

    Something tells me that the Left’s new Diversity Religious Test will follow the inverse of the British trajectory: their fortunes will crater as it is implemented and resurge only once it is lifted.

    Good luck with that. I haven’t seen a clue about how it might work, practically speaking.

     

    It wouldn't. We'd have a "Red Republic" that would consist of Middle America and the South, while "Blue Republic" would be the East Coast and West Coast. That'd be one weird-looking country.

    Even when you carve up regions, it'd be strange. Like creating a "Blue" territory in Cook County, but "Red" territory in the rest of Illinois. Or creating "Blue" territories (Houston, Dallas, and Austin) in "Red" Texas.

    Given how interconnected the entire country is in many ways (roads, bridges, railways, commerce, governance, currency, media), how exactly do you create 2 distinct countries anyway?

    Even if you get separation, so what?

    The elites of a "Red Republic" would push policies like tax cuts, deregulation, drilling for oil, fighting wars overseas, spending trillions on the military, "right to work," cutting Medicare&Medicaid, etc. How is any of that worth fighting and dying for?

    The majority of the Black population lives in the South, with a huge fraction of Hispanics in Texas and the Southwest. So "Red Republic" would be very racially diverse, with an especially large fraction of Blacks. Good luck with that.

    It's not going to be simple, like carving out one territory for the Czech Republic and another territory for Slovakia. "Blue" and "Red" are too intertwined for any type of clean separation.

    Yugoslavia might be a better model. Except that Yugoslavia had less than 25 million people, while the U.S. has 330 million residents. So our Civil War would be like Yugoslavia x 13.

    You think the average American has the toughness and grit to endure that?

    It is a bit of a mystery. I think one dirty little secret that is rarely discussed is that lots of ordinary corporate employees and retirees are watching the value of their employer-matched funds in their 401K retirement funds or IRAs going up and up in what appears to be an overvalued bubbling stock market, and so will waive all moral principles in favor of the status quo and of corporate hegemony.

    Remember that the biggest reversal ever in US government policy came between the great Wall St. crash of late 19929 to 1932 in which the stock market lost 89% of its value.

    The next 7 years under the FDR administration brought a whole slew of new programs like the Social Security Adminstration and the FHA and the liberalization of US global trade policy that still largely define the structure of the US today, plus the repeal of Prohibition.

    Hence when people say the economy is doing well, they often mean the stock index funds are doing well,or that real estate is increasing in price, regardless of whether more better jobs are being created or whether huge tranches of the US which were formerly prosperous are now impoverished.

    Diversity professionals talk about how important diversity is, and since there is never enough diversity and no one can tell you exactly what it is, much less when you’ve reached “peak diversity” or if you’re even close, you can never have enough people to remind everyone how important it is. The more the staff, the more the diversity-talk. The more diversity-talk there is, ergo, the more important it is. Are you begin to grasp the circularity in play? Since the language of “diversity” is so nebulous, abstract and expansive, the work of “diversity” is simply the praising of diversity, or as they put it, “celebrating diversity.”

    Notice how much “diversity” work contrasts with most other kinds of university employment, a math professor, for example. A math professor isn’t paid to talk about how important mathematics is; he doesn’t have to. He just teaches people how to do mathematics because it is obvious how important mathematics is. You only hire as many math professors as you have students who want or need to learn mathematics; any additional math profs would have nothing to do. Or, take the custodian who cleans the classrooms and how quickly nasty things get without him: think what would happen to him if all he did was talk about how important it is to have tidy buildings but never emptied the trash cans.

    I have made off colour jokes before, and had the person bitch at me. Once you get to know the person, behind closed doors many white people are not PC at all, especially older ones. But as you move younger, white people do get alot more PC, to the point where they get aggressively angry at even the mere whiff of racism.

    Rule of thumb: with people you know well, and in private settings, everything is fine. Around women, any POC, you have to be more careful. It’s always “yes”, “no”, and all smiles.

    Women do usually appreciate being flirted with, or smiled at. Just have to be careful not to cross the line.

    In summary, you’re not totally wrong that one can bog themselves down with imaginary chains. But, especially for younger white men, we do actually have to be cautious in certain circumstances.

    We need separation.

    White men need to wake up and smell the coffee. Jewish minoritarianism is a cancer and it is eating up institution after institution in a way that would have been unbelievable even ten years back. It's a very different nation than when i was a kid--or even in college--and not at all in a good way.

    White men need to pull their heads out of the sand and demand their right to live and breathe as free white men. Which means having our own nation, under our own traditional Western norms.

    Let the minoritarians do their thing as they see fit. But they have no right to enslave and abuse us. We must insist on it. And be willing to fight and die for it.

Forget the vacations, the big houses, college educations…. raise large broods and send legions of them into the skilled trades, agriculture, and the military.

    To get hired as a professor at the University of California you now have to submit a statement explaining how you will advance the worship of the university’s (and perhaps universe’s) supreme good: Diversity Equity Inclusion To You.
     
    IIRC, my understanding is that California schools have been doing something like this for a long while now, except with scholarship candidates. If you apply to USC film school, for example, your application will require a diversity statement if you want to apply for financial aid. Though, it's possible it was listed as optional* at the time I checked. Those kinds of things struck me as obliquely targeted to white applicants -- perhaps even Asians -- as a subtle form of discrimination, perhaps done purposely in the hopes the wrong candidate takes a hint and applies elsewhere. It's typical of how liberals preach one thing but contort their rhetoric to get the opposite: "I'm against discrimination; therefore, I must discriminate against you to ensure diversity, inclusion, and non-discrimination."

    *Optional, but you'll do it if you know what's good for you.

    At present there is still a marked paucity of imagination when it comes to the necessary and inevitable issues of Separation and Partition, which must and will happen. They do not necessarily entail a civil war, or indeed fighting or bloodshed of any kind. They do not even entail a breakup of the political entity known as the United States. In future, pace a Reg Caesar anagram, they may simply be the Un-tied States.

    There's a great deal of imaginative political thinking that simply hasn't been done yet: a re-imagining of federalism, a reconceptualization of things like states' rights or freedom of association, a re-imagining of the internal political boundaries and internal political structures of the country, a critical re-appraisal of the Articles of Confederation or the arguments of the Anti-Federalists, a re-examination of what and where a "state" really is or where it should be, a critical and intellectually serious deconstruction of Magic Statue Poem and its mythos, an acceptance and appraisal of the fact that post-1965 immigration has effectively erased the entire previous history of this country, that American history has effectively ceased to exist for political purposes, that current boundaries and entities are therefore up for re-modeling, and so on.

    The America of the Stars and Stripes and backyard barbecues and baseball and this "voting" nonsense is dead and gone. Never coming back. All that stuff was for a former people, who want their own country now. Give the old lass a good rowdy wake and a proper Mass of Christian Burial and sixty days' mourning, and then start thinking about what lies ahead.

    SEC dissolves student athletic recruiters

    https://www.theplainsman.com/article/2019/04/student-athletic-recruiters-to-be-dissolved




    Student athletic recruiters, who serve as hosts for athletic recruits visiting campus for events, will soon cease to exist at Auburn.

    Due to recent legislation passed by the SEC, only employees, graduate assistants or student-athletes of that sport may be hosts for these events.

    Once the current group of student athletic recruiters finishes their term in August, the group will cease to exist.

    Taylor Jackson, this year’s president of student-athletic recruiters, is sad to see the end of this organization.

    She will no longer be able to assist SARs and help recruits and their families grow to love Auburn University.

    “My favorite part of the job is the relationships that are formed with the recruits and their families,” Jackson said. “When they sign with Auburn, it’s a special feeling knowing that you played a small part in the process, and you get to continue the relationship with that family each gameday.”

    Jackson thinks the legislation will have a detrimental effect on the recruiting experience, as well.

    “Having hostesses close to their age helps them to feel more comfortable and allows them to open up,” Jackson said. “It also helps them to meet students, so when they actually come to school here they see familiar faces.”
     
    Interestingly enough, it's leftist/SJW/feminist types who object the most strongly, mostly because they see hostess programs as "objectifying" women as "sex objects." The "good ole boy" Southron people aren't too happy about this, but they have to go along.

    In the current year, it's liberals who are the racial protectors of White female chastity in SEC schools.

  112. WARNING: On topic.

    The U California Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE) statement required of new hires and for promotion reviews is equivalent to the old British religious test and more recent McCarthyite loyalty oaths. It violates freedom of conscience. Consider the American Pledge of Allegiance. The U.S. Supreme Court in 1943, in a case involving Jehovah’s Witnesses (who are forbidden to make oaths to a secular power), ruled that requiring students in a public school to recite the Pledge is in violation of the First Amendment.

    In the middle of a war whose outcome was uncertain, and at the height of patriotic fervor, freedom of conscience was guaranteed to a despised religious minority. Now, in fat and safe times, a pledge to diversity, a value trivial and incoherent compared to patriotism during a global war of survival, is required for hiring and promotion in public universities.

    It is worse than the religious test or McCarthyite oath because it cannot simply be affirmed by checking a box. Rather, the applicant must strenuously celebrate the value in imaginative detail, and recite specific concrete actions she has undertaken and will undertake to promote it.

    Cochrane:

    My friends (anonymous!) in the UC system report that the criteria are clear and the word is out: Don’t try to be clever.

    Correct. Cochrane’s linked article goes on to describe an H.R. Dept. scoring rubric that amounts to a political test. Demonstrating an actual commitment to fairness and accommodation for students from all walks of life is not sufficient, would even count against you: exact dogma must be expressed, endorsed, and proven in action. To reflect critically on the intellectual and moral bases of the dogma would indicate that you do not enthusiastically support and enact the dogma, and discourage hiring or promotion. Those who fail to notice and denounce the less enthusiastic are also under suspicion.

    I too have anonymous friends at U Cal campuses. I’m told that these days mandatory H.R. training sessions and department hiring meetings now include ever more competitively expressed celebrations of “diversity” by subject faculty. Those celebrations are likely to inflate to further extremes since it is unlikely that a greater quantity and quality of creedal declarations will resolve the issues covered by the label “diversity.” Diversity testimony is coming to resemble the competitively loud acceptances of Jesus at tent revivals.

    At the same time the student body is as ethnically diverse as an international airport: at one leading campus, about 10% are white males, a few percent are black, and there are almost no Native Americans. Readers of conservative media, relying on biased clickbait and social-media samples, fear that Cal students are a generation of Bolsheviks; and, I suppose, readers of media on the further left hope that they are. But most of these diverse students are careerists who want a degree in pharmacy, biology, business, or some other profession, and most either ignore the pc charade or pretend to go along with it when required for advancement. This can be confirmed by examination of current public-opinion studies of college students and young adults. Like older Americans, most are towards the center of the spectrum of political opinion.

    WARNING: On topic.

    The U California Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity (DIE) statement required of new hires and for promotion reviews is equivalent to the old British religious test and more recent McCarthyite loyalty oaths. It violates freedom of conscience. Consider the American Pledge of Allegiance. The U.S. Supreme Court in 1943, in a case involving Jehovah’s Witnesses (who are forbidden to make oaths to a secular power), ruled that requiring students in a public school to recite the Pledge is in violation of the First Amendment.

    In the middle of a war whose outcome was uncertain, and at the height of patriotic fervor, freedom of conscience was guaranteed to a despised religious minority. Now, in fat and safe times, a pledge to diversity, a value trivial and incoherent compared to patriotism during a global war of survival, is required for hiring and promotion in public universities.

    It is worse than the religious test or McCarthyite oath because it cannot simply be affirmed by checking a box. Rather, the applicant must strenuously celebrate the value in imaginative detail, and recite specific concrete actions she has undertaken and will undertake to promote it.

    Cochrane:

    My friends (anonymous!) in the UC system report that the criteria are clear and the word is out: Don’t try to be clever.
     
    Correct. Cochrane’s linked article goes on to describe an H.R. Dept. scoring rubric that amounts to a political test. Demonstrating an actual commitment to fairness and accommodation for students from all walks of life is not sufficient, would even count against you: exact dogma must be expressed, endorsed, and proven in action. To reflect critically on the intellectual and moral bases of the dogma would indicate that you do not enthusiastically support and enact the dogma, and discourage hiring or promotion. Those who fail to notice and denounce the less enthusiastic are also under suspicion.

    I too have anonymous friends at U Cal campuses. I’m told that these days mandatory H.R. training sessions and department hiring meetings now include ever more competitively expressed celebrations of “diversity” by subject faculty. Those celebrations are likely to inflate to further extremes since it is unlikely that a greater quantity and quality of creedal declarations will resolve the issues covered by the label “diversity.” Diversity testimony is coming to resemble the competitively loud acceptances of Jesus at tent revivals.

    At the same time the student body is as ethnically diverse as an international airport: at one leading campus, about 10% are white males, a few percent are black, and there are almost no Native Americans. Readers of conservative media, relying on biased clickbait and social-media samples, fear that Cal students are a generation of Bolsheviks; and, I suppose, readers of media on the further left hope that they are. But most of these diverse students are careerists who want a degree in pharmacy, biology, business, or some other profession, and most either ignore the pc charade or pretend to go along with it when required for advancement. This can be confirmed by examination of current public-opinion studies of college students and young adults. Like older Americans, most are towards the center of the spectrum of political opinion.

    It’s far worse than that.

    What is it about dialectical materialism that you don’t understand? Do you imagine that Bolsheviks weren’t careerists? The point is what they don’t believe in our have never been taught, not that they’re flying the Hammer and Sickle. If anything PC is an abortive attempt to crowd out the Bolshies or to reinvent something beyond the merely material.

  121. @ Old Palo Altan:

    But I really just want to join in your mockery of UCLA: fifty years ago, the place did not really register at all – it was just another southern California party school, one which limped badly behind the at least socially acceptable USC. There was one fraternity at Cal which was almost exclusively the reserve of upper-class Angelinos (mostly from Pasadena) who were more scathing than anyone else about the inadequacies of the college world in their native climes.

    It’s always about social status and class with you, isn’t it?

    Okay, so you were born into considerable wealth, privilege and social status. And you reminisce fondly about a youth in which you were coddled and fawned over. I get it. What I don’t get is why such snobbish, self-indulgent exercises as your recent comments in a different thread generate the kind of praise that they did from several who responded to them there. Such comments come across a pretty pathetic, whether as trying to ingratiate themselves to you (for what purpose, I’m not sure) or perhaps vicarious fantasizing of a sort. I suppose the latter, at least, is understandable enough. There are probably few of us who haven’t indulged in it at some point, and I’m no exception there. Still, what was offered in those recent reminisces was pretty meager and measly. So still rather pathetic of those who praised them so highly.

    SEC dissolves student athletic recruiters

    https://www.theplainsman.com/article/2019/04/student-athletic-recruiters-to-be-dissolved




    Student athletic recruiters, who serve as hosts for athletic recruits visiting campus for events, will soon cease to exist at Auburn.

    Due to recent legislation passed by the SEC, only employees, graduate assistants or student-athletes of that sport may be hosts for these events.

    Once the current group of student athletic recruiters finishes their term in August, the group will cease to exist.

    Taylor Jackson, this year’s president of student-athletic recruiters, is sad to see the end of this organization.

    She will no longer be able to assist SARs and help recruits and their families grow to love Auburn University.

    “My favorite part of the job is the relationships that are formed with the recruits and their families,” Jackson said. “When they sign with Auburn, it’s a special feeling knowing that you played a small part in the process, and you get to continue the relationship with that family each gameday.”

    Jackson thinks the legislation will have a detrimental effect on the recruiting experience, as well.

    “Having hostesses close to their age helps them to feel more comfortable and allows them to open up,” Jackson said. “It also helps them to meet students, so when they actually come to school here they see familiar faces.”
     
    Interestingly enough, it's leftist/SJW/feminist types who object the most strongly, mostly because they see hostess programs as "objectifying" women as "sex objects." The "good ole boy" Southron people aren't too happy about this, but they have to go along.

    In the current year, it's liberals who are the racial protectors of White female chastity in SEC schools.

    That's sort of funny.

  123. Cardinal Marx is a heretic probably a Mason….– the Catholic Church, at the instigation of the Devil its enemy, was infiltrated by Masons/Communists/Satanists (Pecorelli’s list documented a number of these Masons–Pecorelli was murdered soon after releasing it — Bella Dodd, the Communist leader, stated she had personal knowledge Communists placed over 1,100 Communists inside the Church to destroy it–this is all the tip of the iceberg….)–they were themselves many homosexuals and brought in the homopredators (Cardinal Bernardin the flaming homosexual Satanist piplined in untold numbers of homosexuals booted out of seminaries worldwide)– all of this was planned and is coming to a climax now.

    This makes me "think" I was wrong when I criticized commenter Intelligent Dasein for writing this:

    … there is no such thing as free thought. Each man thinks as he must, as the conditions of the moment determine him.
     
    People are very good at "thinking" what they "think" they are supposed to "think."

    That is what they will do when they write their DEITY statements. Dare I say, that is what many people do when they walk into their churches, synagogues and mosques.

    It is what Soviets did with regard to Lysenkoism and when they clapped for Stalin until the buzzer sounded.

    We are going down the same toilet.

    Sure, make it a solid identity. Look into how that’s done, what real identities consist of, how they are formed and transmitted. A worthy project.
