  1. OT: This is very sad. Omaha Bar Owner Charged For Killing Rioter Who Attacked Him and His Business Has Committed Suicide

    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/09/breaking-omaha-bar-owner-charged-killing-rioter-attacked-business-committed-suicide/

    You call it sad; I call it infuriating.

    I also call it 'by design'. I render no judgement on the propriety of the man's actions, but there's no doubt he wouldn't have received a fair trial.

    Not to mention how colossally expensive such a trial would be.

    A GoFundMe fundraiser to raise money for his defense was deleted by the platform.
     

    I'm so tired of seeing this. What's the alternative platform?

    The "Facts and Logic" crowd overestimate the rationality of the average person and even their own rationality. People aren't swayed by facts as much as they are by pathos or an emotional connotation to a certain fact. Leftists have demonstrated that you don't even need a basic truth to convince someone; outright lies can be pushed if there's some sort of emotional appeal behind them.

    I'm sure many here would claim that they were only redpilled through hard data, but that simply isn't the case for many others (especially those who don't even know what HBD is let alone show interest in it). I know that it wasn't just facts that turned me but passionate appeals using those facts. Kendi can claim outright falsehoods but his supporters (including Jack Dorsey) are so emotionally invested in his cause that that doesn't matter. Fanaticism may be a dirty word to the rational mind but it is fanatics that are at the vanguard of every movement.

    An aspect of my military service during the reign of Bush I was maritime law enforcement. In that capacity I received anti-terrorist training. Besides the weapons and explosives fun stuff, the classroom portion contained information that can now be found online. What was missing during that long-ago information input was the salient fact that virtually all funding for strategy of tension trauma aka terrorist acts against soft target civilians is provided by elite sources. Flash forward to present day: Billionaire jackass Dorsey funds racial terrorism and Polite Society applauds.

    Almost every sentient, functioning adult on the planet today is racist (i.e. recognizes inherent racial hierarchies), whether they admit it or not. “Antiracists”, despite the label, are just contrarians, preeners, opportunists, fabulists, or racist warriors against certain races—mainly against Whites.

  8. The concept of racism as it is now understood reminds me of my Catholic upbringing, when the nuns warned us about the danger of impure thoughts. If you looked at an attractive woman and imagined what she looked like naked, you were sinning. Now, you didn’t actually do anything, and she had no idea what you were thinking, but it was a sin nonetheless. Similarly, you can go through life being courteous and respectful to every black person you encounter, and yet if an impure thought crosses your mind, a negative thought that you don’t express, don’t act upon, and that no one else is even aware of, you are guilty of RACISM, the greatest of all moral failings. Racism is something that exists in your innermost thoughts and for which you must be judged sinful, even when it has no effect on the outside world.

    I sense you probably don't care, but for the record Catholicism doesn't teach that it is a sin when an immoral thought arises spontaneously in the mind. Rather, it becomes sinful only if you willfully dwell on the thought or act upon it.

    To quote St. Alphonsus Liguori: "Some . . . are afraid that every bad thought that presents itself to the mind is a sin. This is an error. It is not the bad thought, but the consent to it, that is sinful . . . where there is no consent there can be no sin."

    Thinking some random thought and acting upon it are two different things

    That being said, your analogy is full of holes and doesn't work.

    Racism has never been deemed a sin.

    Most people who think racist thoughts do act upon them. Ask Obama when he was walking through the dark alley late at night. Ask every person who has chosen a spouse who is a member of their racial/religious group.

    No, racism is not what you think in your inmost thoughts.

    Racism is a system which privileges and empowers white people, and disempowers people of color.

    All white people benefit from this system, regardless of personal thoughts, feelings and attitudes. They can either leave this system in place and be racist, or they can work to dismantle it and be anti-racist. Dismantling this system consists of achieving equal racial outcomes by every measure (except for those outcomes in which people of color do better.)

    That is how systemic racism academics and activists define the terms.

    Most of the BLM sympathizers out there mix the idea of personal feelings with the new systemic definition.

    Most old school liberals, conservatives, and those who take personal responsibility think of thoughts and individual actions when they define racism.

    … is mostly about Kendi’s beliefs, and comes across as fair and non-biased, even though the author, G. Thomas Burgess, associate professor of African History at the US Naval Academy, obviously disagrees with Kendi and thinks his philosophy is harmful, incoherent, and internally inconsistent.

    The nice thing about Kendi, as Burgess describes his writings, is that he doesn’t shy away from carrying his theories to their ultimate concrete, real-world conclusions, making their radical nature pretty obvious. I came away with a certain respect for Kendi: dumb, but sincere, honest, and not disingenuous.

    Notwithstanding these advances, 38-year-old author and activist Ibram X. Kendi disdains non-racism because it is “neutral” and even illusory in the “racism struggle.” If you wish to oppose racism, he tells readers of his 2019 book How to Be an Antiracist, non-racism is insufficient: “The opposite of ‘racist’ isn’t ‘not racist.’ It is ‘anti-racist.’” Anti-racist activists like Kendi have nevertheless appropriated the mantle of Dr. Martin Luther King and fortified their arguments with his moral authority. And they have benefitted from the facile assumption that any movement which opposes racism and is led by African Americans must be a lineal descendant and natural heir to his legacy. But anti-racism is by no means a clear or coherent set of ideas, and anti-racist activists and thinkers often find themselves in sharp disagreement with one another, even if these disagreements are seldom acknowledged.

  21. ” is like reading Stalin” – Exactly the same logic and tactics. The middle and the moderates were despised the most because they were the greatest threat. They could undermine the radicals and they had an appeal among people. Stalin communists hated social-democrats the most and would support nazis in stopping and marginalizing social-democrats.

    And then there is simple semantic logic that the anti-racists need racists to be ant-racists so they they are making racists out of non-racists.

    The radicals like the anti-racists do not want peace and reconciliation. No justice no peace slogan is a lie. They want a permanent war because they know that the final victory is not possible. Besides they do not have a vision for the world after the final victory. In racial wars and this is a racial war the final victory means at best subjugation of the defeated race or at worst total annihilation of the opposing race.

    This is spot on. AntiFa as an understandable/necessary (according to the Megaphone holders) response to “Charlottesville” suffers from the teensy drawback of the causative factor not actually having bothered to antecede the result in the, you know, space-time sense. AntiFa was before Charlottesville and I am pretty sure before even BLM 1.0. The German Boomers who created the Red Army Fraction and Beider-Meinhof Gang at least had the excuse that there were still actual former Nazis and war criminals at-large in West German society, often in prominent positions and having received little justice for their war time acts.

    But what is the justification for an organization to street brawl “fascists” in 21st Century America outside of some sick need to street brawl? Every time a Republican wins a Presidential election these people (precious little Bertolt Brechts in their own minds) declare how they are “seriously looking into” immigrating to Canada real soon now on their social media crawls- and then don’t. They eagerly gobble up dystopian lumpen-smarty feed (HANDMAIDENS TALE, THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA) not bothering to consider these were reactions to by-gone Republican administrations who did not bother going through the formality of actually ushering in the right-wing authoritarian dictatorship the smarties are getting delicious chills up the spine imagining is (again) just around the corner.

    The concept of racism as it is now understood reminds me of my Catholic upbringing, when the nuns warned us about the danger of impure thoughts. If you looked at an attractive woman and imagined what she looked like naked, you were sinning. Now, you didn't actually do anything, and she had no idea what you were thinking, but it was a sin nonetheless. Similarly, you can go through life being courteous and respectful to every black person you encounter, and yet if an impure thought crosses your mind, a negative thought that you don't express, don't act upon, and that no one else is even aware of, you are guilty of RACISM, the greatest of all moral failings. Racism is something that exists in your innermost thoughts and for which you must be judged sinful, even when it has no effect on the outside world.

    " is like reading Stalin" - Exactly the same logic and tactics. The middle and the moderates were despised the most because they were the greatest threat. They could undermine the radicals and they had an appeal among people. Stalin communists hated social-democrats the most and would support nazis in stopping and marginalizing social-democrats.

    And then there is simple semantic logic that the anti-racists need racists to be ant-racists so they they are making racists out of non-racists.

    The radicals like the anti-racists do not want peace and reconciliation. No justice no peace slogan is a lie. They want a permanent war because they know that the final victory is not possible. Besides they do not have a vision for the world after the final victory. In racial wars and this is a racial war the final victory means at best subjugation of the defeated race or at worst total annihilation of the opposing race. The dreams of enslaving or murder at least at the subconscious level are the burning fuel for these revolutionaries.

    This ...

    https://quillette.com/2020/09/13/anti-racist-structuralists-and-non-racist-culturalists/

    ... is mostly about Kendi's beliefs, and comes across as fair and non-biased, even though the author, G. Thomas Burgess, associate professor of African History at the US Naval Academy, obviously disagrees with Kendi and thinks his philosophy is harmful, incoherent, and internally inconsistent.

    The nice thing about Kendi, as Burgess describes his writings, is that he doesn't shy away from carrying his theories to their ultimate concrete, real-world conclusions, making their radical nature pretty obvious. I came away with a certain respect for Kendi: dumb, but sincere, honest, and not disingenuous.


    Notwithstanding these advances, 38-year-old author and activist Ibram X. Kendi disdains non-racism because it is “neutral” and even illusory in the “racism struggle.” If you wish to oppose racism, he tells readers of his 2019 book How to Be an Antiracist, non-racism is insufficient: “The opposite of ‘racist’ isn’t ‘not racist.’ It is ‘anti-racist.’” Anti-racist activists like Kendi have nevertheless appropriated the mantle of Dr. Martin Luther King and fortified their arguments with his moral authority. And they have benefitted from the facile assumption that any movement which opposes racism and is led by African Americans must be a lineal descendant and natural heir to his legacy. But anti-racism is by no means a clear or coherent set of ideas, and anti-racist activists and thinkers often find themselves in sharp disagreement with one another, even if these disagreements are seldom acknowledged.

  54. Stalin was actually an exceedingly well-read fellow. He wasn’t an intellectual, exactly, in the same way that Lenin or Trotsky were, but that’s largely due to the fact that he came from a vastly different social and economic background and reflected that as an adult, rather than a lack of intellectual capacity per se.

    Stalin was a published Georgian poet in his late teenaged years. He was also a wedding singer and choirboy. At school he got fives (the highest grade). His scholarship declined at the Tiflis seminary where he became a political revolutionary and then dropped out.

  59. If you take the perspective that in 2020 ‘anti-racist’ is really ‘anti-white’ then it makes sense.

    ‘White’ as much as it makes sense to exist as an ethnic collective identity is purely negative. White collective membership exists in America but it is purely negative, as a member you are assigned blame and guilt where possible but are not permitted to get anything positive from it. You cannot have collective pride or specific spaces or institutions. You cannot define collective interests and explicitly pursue them politically.

    You only have responsibilities no rights.

    Thus you either live up to that paradigm of having responsibilities (Facilitating outgroups interests) and no rights (Having no collective interests of your own and explicitly helping to suppress anyone in your own group from expressing them through social ostracisation) or you don’t. If you don’t express that you have no collective ethnic rights (No matter how implicitly or unconsciously) then as far as Ibram X Kendi is concerned, you are putting up illegitimate and unnecessary resistance.

    The concept of racism as it is now understood reminds me of my Catholic upbringing, when the nuns warned us about the danger of impure thoughts. If you looked at an attractive woman and imagined what she looked like naked, you were sinning. Now, you didn't actually do anything, and she had no idea what you were thinking, but it was a sin nonetheless. Similarly, you can go through life being courteous and respectful to every black person you encounter, and yet if an impure thought crosses your mind, a negative thought that you don't express, don't act upon, and that no one else is even aware of, you are guilty of RACISM, the greatest of all moral failings. Racism is something that exists in your innermost thoughts and for which you must be judged sinful, even when it has no effect on the outside world.

    Two young adults, a man and a woman, were killed and 14 people wounded early Saturday in the largest Rochester shooting in memory, an act of violence that occurred at a backyard house party with more than 100 people present.

    https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2020/09/19/rochester-mass-shooting-near-public-market/5836840002/

    Unwelcome party guests:

    Umbrino said a small, invite-only gathering went awry when people from two separate house parties nearby started to “infiltrate” the home where the shooting occurred. Between 100 and 200 attendees gathered at the home in the Marketview Heights neighborhood. An argument escalated and multiple people “took out handguns and starting firing” at each other.

    https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/news/2020/09/19/rochester-mass-shooting-police-press-conference-victims-suspects-pennsylvania-avenue/5841747002/

    Yes, there appears to be a funeral connection. The large party was a combination of a smaller party plus two other parties on the street that combined with it … plus some people who had come from a funeral … except I cannot find the article where I originally read that. Of course the parties violated corona rules, but that is being downplayed.

    Of one of the victims: “Jaquayla Young … was an Urban League of Rochester Black Scholar …. Young was attending Monroe Community College.” From the Urban League website: “The Black Scholars Program, provides recognition, assistance, and incentives to students who achieve and maintain a B or better average throughout high school.”

    The NY Times frames it implying it is somehow connected with the Daniel Prude case, in the subheadline and the entire last third of the article, although the party seems to have nothing to do with Prude. They segue into Prude with a “community was already traumatized by” connector, and a “city that had come under scrutiny” connector in the subhead.

    Senior UK govt adviser claims Covid-19 antibodies fade over time, warns of nearly 50,000 cases per day by mid-October as doctors send a letter to Hancock to reconsider the delirious UK approach.

    UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock claimed on Friday that the number of hospitalizations for coronavirus has doubled every eight days, but this figure has come under considerable scrutiny. Journalist Peter Hitchens noted in his latest Mail on Sunday column that hospital admissions for the disease remain extremely low compared to March, and that there was no “established pattern” supporting the government’s claim. He accused Hancock of “unscrupulous panic-mongering which would shame a banana republic.”

    The briefing coincided with an open letter released by a group of UK medical professionals and academics, which argued that the “existing policy path” being used to combat Covid-19 was “inconsistent” with the actual risk posed by the disease.

    Meanwhile the World Socialist Website tells us that easing lockdown and chilling the hell out, as written in another letter by Belgian doctors (apparently mentioned nowhere except by Paul Craig Roberts?) is an attack of International Grand Capitalism to immolate workers on the altar of unsafe conditions and greed on the level of an 18th-century industrial revolution:

    Open letter in Le Soir: Belgian ruling class calls to spread COVID-19

    This chilling indifference is especially disturbing given the large number of doctors among the signatories.

    There seems to be little third-party action this time around. That fits earlier elections that have followed strong third-party showings-- 1952, 1964, 1972, 1984, 2004. Most of these follow-ups have been landslides.

    Perot's follow-ups didn't have this effect, probably because he garnered no electors, not even a single faithless one, with all those votes he paid for. Clinton and Gore inspired too much hate for that. Same with Wilson in 1916. Wilson 2.o was followed by three GOP landslides, and seven major-party ones.

    Epstein spawned an amazing libel lawsuit with America’s two most famous living litigators as parties (Dershowitz v. David Boies) on opposing sides of the controversy.

    Isn’t being anti-racist as being against racists, active and vocal, marching where being not racist is passive and just saying you are a racist where silence is violence, and you’re obviously a racist, because you’re not actively hunting white people?

    Stalin was better looking too but then pictures often make you look better than you look when in person, so Stalin may have looked a little less attractive in person and then when he opened his mouth probably even less.

    " is like reading Stalin" - Exactly the same logic and tactics. The middle and the moderates were despised the most because they were the greatest threat. They could undermine the radicals and they had an appeal among people. Stalin communists hated social-democrats the most and would support nazis in stopping and marginalizing social-democrats.

    And then there is simple semantic logic that the anti-racists need racists to be ant-racists so they they are making racists out of non-racists.

    The radicals like the anti-racists do not want peace and reconciliation. No justice no peace slogan is a lie. They want a permanent war because they know that the final victory is not possible. Besides they do not have a vision for the world after the final victory. In racial wars and this is a racial war the final victory means at best subjugation of the defeated race or at worst total annihilation of the opposing race. The dreams of enslaving or murder at least at the subconscious level are the burning fuel for these revolutionaries.

    The Chief of The Imperial General Staff, Alanbrooke, certainly thought so. Several references in the CIGS’s Wartime Diaries make that plain - compare and contrast with Alanbrooke’s dismal verdict on Churchill. And contrary to many (?most) western commentators, Stalin appears to have respected those who stood up to him and promoted views which challenged his preconceptions - see Richard Overy, for example - no doubt after shouting matches.

    And like all old people, he became confused and enfeebled and those around belittled his achievements.

    The concept of racism as it is now understood reminds me of my Catholic upbringing, when the nuns warned us about the danger of impure thoughts. If you looked at an attractive woman and imagined what she looked like naked, you were sinning. Now, you didn't actually do anything, and she had no idea what you were thinking, but it was a sin nonetheless. Similarly, you can go through life being courteous and respectful to every black person you encounter, and yet if an impure thought crosses your mind, a negative thought that you don't express, don't act upon, and that no one else is even aware of, you are guilty of RACISM, the greatest of all moral failings. Racism is something that exists in your innermost thoughts and for which you must be judged sinful, even when it has no effect on the outside world.

    No, racism is not what you think in your inmost thoughts.

    Racism is a system which privileges and empowers white people, and disempowers people of color.

    All white people benefit from this system, regardless of personal thoughts, feelings and attitudes. They can either leave this system in place and be racist, or they can work to dismantle it and be anti-racist. Dismantling this system consists of achieving equal racial outcomes by every measure (except for those outcomes in which people of color do better.)

    That is how systemic racism academics and activists define the terms.

    Most of the BLM sympathizers out there mix the idea of personal feelings with the new systemic definition.

    Most old school liberals, conservatives, and those who take personal responsibility think of thoughts and individual actions when they define racism.

  105. [OT] You had a thread about an exam-admissions school in Richmond switching to an antiracist curriculum. Well, like every terrible idea in 2020, it’s going nationwide. A recent email from a tony Upper East Side private school re their antiracism “Summer Action Plan”:

    We write today to follow up on the social media posts on @BlackatNightingale and @QueeratNightingale this summer, as well as letters the School has received from students, parents, and alumnae. The Board takes the concerns raised in the posts and letters extremely seriously, and we thank the writers for bravely sharing their experiences.

    [MORE]

    I signed up for Instagram so that I could read @BlackatNightingale. It was…not much, actually. A not-very-large selection of posts from students going back decades, retailing various offenses committed by students, teachers, administrators, and even people with no actual connection with the school. For example a Filipino woman whose daughter attended the school who was asked by other Filipino women if she was someone’s nanny and, after she told them her daughter attended the school, they asked her if she was married to a white man. There were a few racist comments by bitchy classmates, some not-credible complaints about teachers, and quite a few posts that were just silly, i.e. a girl was aggrieved because she didn’t get to take calculus, or someone was told she’d have a hard time getting into an Ivy League school. And how much “bravery” is required to post an anonymous complaint on a message board?

    Anyway, the Board of Trustees retained two Debevoise partners, Mary Beth Hogan and Arian June, and two “restorative practices experts,” Toni McMurphy and Nina Harris (https://www.sandiego.edu/soles/restorative-justice/about-us.php, scroll down) to interview teachers who had been criticized on the Instagram boards. So, basically, teachers are being treated like white-collar crime suspects on the say-so of anonymous complaints. I looked up Hogan’s bio. She’s the co-chair of Debevoise’s litigation department, and her bread and butter appears to be internal investigations of accusations of racism and sexism. Among her “Sensitive Investigations” clients she lists “The Boards of Trustees of a number of independent schools in allegations of improper conduct by teachers, coaches and administrators.” Like I said, it’s going nationwide. A new way for lawyers to mint money while transforming elite institutions. https://www.debevoise.com/marybethhogan

    The Board has also hired one Howard Stevenson to conduct training on November 9. https://www.gse.upenn.edu/academics/faculty-directory/stevenson His work “focuses on how racial stress and trauma affect all aspects of life, especially for students of color.”

    I get the grift. And for the Richmond school, I get the idea that anti-racism is some kind of bank-shot rear-guard anti-Asian action. I don’t buy it, but I get it. You can’t possibly make that argument here, though. This school and others like it are not dominated by Asians and at no risk of becoming so. I think the elite has decided that this society is fundamentally illegitimate and needs to be torn up by the roots.

However, one of these reactors, Jamal something, expressed genuine wonder whilst listening to a Rush song. There’s like five songs in that one song, exclaimed Jamal. Yeah dude, it’s called progressive rock. Whatever indigenous music talent there is within the American African Diaspora population has been laid waste to by anti-music rap and flip flop.

    " is like reading Stalin" - Exactly the same logic and tactics. The middle and the moderates were despised the most because they were the greatest threat. They could undermine the radicals and they had an appeal among people. Stalin communists hated social-democrats the most and would support nazis in stopping and marginalizing social-democrats.

    And then there is simple semantic logic that the anti-racists need racists to be ant-racists so they they are making racists out of non-racists.

    The radicals like the anti-racists do not want peace and reconciliation. No justice no peace slogan is a lie. They want a permanent war because they know that the final victory is not possible. Besides they do not have a vision for the world after the final victory. In racial wars and this is a racial war the final victory means at best subjugation of the defeated race or at worst total annihilation of the opposing race. The dreams of enslaving or murder at least at the subconscious level are the burning fuel for these revolutionaries.

    To quote St. Alphonsus Liguori: "Some . . . are afraid that every bad thought that presents itself to the mind is a sin. This is an error. It is not the bad thought, but the consent to it, that is sinful . . . where there is no consent there can be no sin."

    Former police commander: Immigrants are behind the wave of violent crime blighting Sweden, but the authorities refuse to admit it

    There are poorer areas of the cities of Stockholm and Malmo where bombings and other examples of extreme violence are now accepted as part of everyday life. Masked and armed men recently set up roadblocks to control cars entering certain neighbourhoods in Gothenburg. In one horrific incident last month, in Botkyrka, south of Stockholm, a 12-year-old girl walking her dog was shot dead, having been caught in the crossfire during a battle between rival gangs. Her friends later explained that shootings were an everyday experience for them, with one saying she heard gunfire from her bedroom window almost every night.

    Rapes and attacks on women, particularly on indigenous females, continue to grow. Almost every day, people simply going about their business are surrounded by gangs of young male immigrants and attacked for what appears to be little more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But no one says anything about who’s carrying out the crimes. Even the police won’t speak openly, and many politicians are in denial.

    No, racism is not what you think in your inmost thoughts.

    Racism is a system which privileges and empowers white people, and disempowers people of color.

    All white people benefit from this system, regardless of personal thoughts, feelings and attitudes. They can either leave this system in place and be racist, or they can work to dismantle it and be anti-racist. Dismantling this system consists of achieving equal racial outcomes by every measure (except for those outcomes in which people of color do better.)

    That is how systemic racism academics and activists define the terms.

    Most of the BLM sympathizers out there mix the idea of personal feelings with the new systemic definition.

    Most old school liberals, conservatives, and those who take personal responsibility think of thoughts and individual actions when they define racism.

    The “Facts and Logic” crowd overestimate the rationality of the average person and even their own rationality.

Leftists have demonstrated that you don’t even need a basic truth to convince someone; outright lies can be pushed if there’s some sort of emotional appeal behind them.

    I’m sure many here would claim that they were only redpilled through hard data, but that simply isn’t the case for many others (especially those who don’t even know what HBD is let alone show interest in it). I know that it wasn’t just facts that turned me but passionate appeals using those facts.

    They even made a movie about it starring Woody Harrelson- BATTLE IN SEATTLE. In my former GOPe incarnation I remember semi-watching it on cable with my wife and harrumphing how nothing is too small or inconsequential for the Left, through Hollywood, to shamelessly self-valorize itself over, as clearly those late 90’s anti-WTO protests were since they so miserably failed in their objectives.

    The key difference between those protesters then and AntiFa now is that identity politics, let alone “anti-fascism” self-gas lighting (beneath the anodyne surface of white suburbia a PANZERKAMPFWAGON is ready to crash out of every 2-car garage) was not a major, let alone all-consuming, preoccupation.

    Maybe the key-er difference was that- on balance- were those anti-WTO protestors wrong? Left-leaning cultural critics like Christopher Lasch warned us all those years ago that globalization would create a rootless, 0-loyalty-to-country-or-countrymen class of billionaire overlords and that is exactly what has happened, though whether Woke Capital intentionally implemented the teachings of Charles Manson, social scientist, when it started to push it racial-divide-and-rule strategy or it simply knew a good thing when it saw it and got on the bandwagon, I do not profess to know.

    Groups like the Red Skins and SHARP(Skin Heads Against Racial Prejudice) were the genesis of ARA in the 1980's. It started out in the punk rock scene and then over time spread to counter protest every single right-of-the-GOP event. It was really only after 2000 that they reached that level of activism. In the 90's, "far right" events were largely unopposed.

So we have “minorities” oscar isaac (pale already) playing the father of a character played by a european american actor, zendaya, dave batista (part filipino), jason momoa (part hawaiian). The characters batista and momoa play both seem to literally have white paint of some sort on them.

    AntiFa was before Charlottesville and I am pretty sure before even BLM 1.0.

    IIRC, I first became aware of the Antifa phenomenon in 1999, with the anti-WTO demonstrations in Seattle. At the time, the radicals were described as anti-globalist, but since then the same sorts of people have morphed into he shock troops of the globalist elite.

    They even made a movie about it starring Woody Harrelson- BATTLE IN SEATTLE. In my former GOPe incarnation I remember semi-watching it on cable with my wife and harrumphing how nothing is too small or inconsequential for the Left, through Hollywood, to shamelessly self-valorize itself over, as clearly those late 90’s anti-WTO protests were since they so miserably failed in their objectives.

    The key difference between those protesters then and AntiFa now is that identity politics, let alone “anti-fascism” self-gas lighting (beneath the anodyne surface of white suburbia a PANZERKAMPFWAGON is ready to crash out of every 2-car garage) was not a major, let alone all-consuming, preoccupation.

    Maybe the key-er difference was that- on balance- were those anti-WTO protestors wrong? Left-leaning cultural critics like Christopher Lasch warned us all those years ago that globalization would create a rootless, 0-loyalty-to-country-or-countrymen class of billionaire overlords and that is exactly what has happened, though whether Woke Capital intentionally implemented the teachings of Charles Manson, social scientist, when it started to push it racial-divide-and-rule strategy or it simply knew a good thing when it saw it and got on the bandwagon, I do not profess to know.

    Those of us who were on the "far right" in 1999 all supported the WTO riots and some of us were on the ground as participants. The new wokeness has taken all left wing dissent from the establishment's policies and redirected it to supporting the establishment's policies in other areas.

    A lot of the violent white antifa on the West Coast are people who have a background in the radical animal rights movement. Inside of left wing circles, those people were brow beaten to focus on racial issues instead of animals. They were told "how can you fight for animals when black people are being killed, do you care about animals more than black people?" That kind of brow beating to make all white leftists focus primarily on race rather than economics or environmentalism, areas where many white leftists have ideas that can be compatible with right wing nationalism and populism, is something that was going on even in the 90's.

    It's long term effort of the racial left bearing fruit now.

    Like Johnny Walker, I’m fascinated by this once in a lifetime story.

    But the question here is why is it the Virgin Islands that’s seeking this information instead of the vaunted Harvard prosecutors at the SDNY, who currently have the most famous “Madame” in American history living in the Brooklyn Detention Center across the river from their offices.

    Epstein spawned an amazing libel lawsuit with America’s two most famous living litigators as parties (Dershowitz v. David Boies) on opposing sides of the controversy. Of course Boies, by representing the poor women, is merely trying to overcome his “zealous representation” of Harvey Weinstein and the massive damage it did to his reputation and colossal firm.

    Yet other than the Daily Mail, continued crickets from the MSM on the Epstein front.

    Which is a bigger curiosity, Durham’s investigation delays or the non-investigation of Epstein? Either way, reason number 5701 to lose faith in the government’s institutions right before the SHTF in November.

    There are many good bios of Stalin. I've read several.

    Still sitting on my bookshelf, on my wait list, is Stalin: the Court of the Red Tsar, by Simon Sebag Montefiore. You'll find many more on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    Stalin was very well read, he edited Pravda for many years and was very interested in (and concerned with) the arts, especially literature, poetry, etc. Most high ranking Bolsheviks were very well educated in the classics and especially Russian literature, film and the arts.

    As some have mentioned his hair, it was usually retouched in all of the photos. It didn't stay jet black and was like most men, thinning. Undoubtedly dyed and touched up.

    Accounts of his appearance (personal, not photos) was that he was fairly short, almost "dwarfish" and had a withered left arm. He carefully maintained his "man of steel" image. He had a crude sense of humor but could be sharp witted. Like many of his comrades, especially later, he was probably a high functioning alcoholic. Psychopathic.

    Stayed up very late, slept in till the afternoon. Vampire like. The only family member he didn't hate persecute, or seriously ignore, etc. was his mother. He seemed to fear her until she eventually died.

    The Chief of The Imperial General Staff, Alanbrooke, certainly thought so. Several references in the CIGS’s Wartime Diaries make that plain – compare and contrast with Alanbrooke’s dismal verdict on Churchill. And contrary to many (?most) western commentators, Stalin appears to have respected those who stood up to him and promoted views which challenged his preconceptions – see Richard Overy, for example – no doubt after shouting matches.

    And like all old people, he became confused and enfeebled and those around belittled his achievements.

    I cast a vote or three for this party in the past. They never get much traction.

    There seems to be little third-party action this time around. That fits earlier elections that have followed strong third-party showings– 1952, 1964, 1972, 1984, 2004. Most of these follow-ups have been landslides.

    Perot’s follow-ups didn’t have this effect, probably because he garnered no electors, not even a single faithless one, with all those votes he paid for. Clinton and Gore inspired too much hate for that. Same with Wilson in 1916. Wilson 2.o was followed by three GOP landslides, and seven major-party ones.

    There is a good chance of a post-squeeze slide again this year, but I’m afraid to posit a guess on which side will enjoy it.

    Antifa have been around in the US since the mid 1980’s. They used to call themselves ARA — Anti-Racist Action. “Antifa” was only used in Europe.

    Groups like the Red Skins and SHARP(Skin Heads Against Racial Prejudice) were the genesis of ARA in the 1980’s. It started out in the punk rock scene and then over time spread to counter protest every single right-of-the-GOP event. It was really only after 2000 that they reached that level of activism.

    Two young adults, a man and a woman, were killed and 14 people wounded early Saturday in the largest Rochester shooting in memory, an act of violence that occurred at a backyard house party with more than 100 people present.

    Unwelcome party guests:

    Umbrino said a small, invite-only gathering went awry when people from two separate house parties nearby started to "infiltrate" the home where the shooting occurred. Between 100 and 200 attendees gathered at the home in the Marketview Heights neighborhood. An argument escalated and multiple people "took out handguns and starting firing" at each other.

    Yes, there appears to be a funeral connection. The large party was a combination of a smaller party plus two other parties on the street that combined with it ... plus some people who had come from a funeral ... except I cannot find the article where I originally read that. Of course the parties violated corona rules, but that is being downplayed.

    Of one of the victims: "Jaquayla Young ... was an Urban League of Rochester Black Scholar .... Young was attending Monroe Community College." From the Urban League website: "The Black Scholars Program, provides recognition, assistance, and incentives to students who achieve and maintain a B or better average throughout high school."

    The NY Times frames it implying it is somehow connected with the Daniel Prude case, in the subheadline and the entire last third of the article, although the party seems to have nothing to do with Prude. They segue into Prude with a "community was already traumatized by" connector, and a "city that had come under scrutiny" connector in the subhead.

    I'll bet there's a really excellent biography of Stalin that's been published since the end of the Cold War. And no one ever reads it, because Stalin is one of "the bad guys". I'm as guilty as anyone else. Why don't we know more about Stalin? It seems weird.

    Ibram X. Kendi:

    We are either being racist or antiracist. Is that clear for you? There’s no such thing as “not racist”.
     
    Kendi’s only half right—we (humanity) are being racist.

    But there really are no “antiracists.”

    Almost every sentient, functioning adult on the planet today is racist (i.e. recognizes inherent racial hierarchies), whether they admit it or not. “Antiracists”, despite the label, are just contrarians, preeners, opportunists, fabulists, or racist warriors against certain races—mainly against Whites.

    Stalin was quite smart.

    How could he not be, maintaining power over so many for so long?

    I always marvel at my midwit friends who think Trump, or Hitler or Reagan are/were idiots, when they could not hold a fraction of one percent of the information any of those three grasped – either implicitly or explicitly – and directed to shape the lives of millions, while my friends can’t manage to show to show up for lunch on time.

    Are they claiming this is a racial issue? The purse snatcher looks like he has a very light completion to pass as black. His family has setup a Go Fund Me to pay for funeral and burial. They blame all his problems on the state of Vermont and their lack of mental health resources. They have raised $4,700 so far. Go Fund Me should down the campaign and give the money to woman he injured while driving drunk.

    The guy sitting on the rock is the good guy. The bad guy — Adrian Moore, google him — is quite black. No the media isn’t playing up the race angle at all; this is a dog-bites-man incident.

    The racial angle is my suspicion that the kid was fired not for stopping a purse snatcher, but for stopping a black purse snatcher.

  194. There’s no pro without anti

    No right without left

  196. So Kendi is:

    – smart;

    – not smart; or

    – anti-smart

    Since “not smart” now doesn’t exist, does that make Kendi “anti-smart”?

  197. @Christopher Chantrill
    Wrong! Read your Hegel, Kendi. And don't come back until you do.

    Hegel says that the Thing is the same as its opposite. The North Pole of a magnet is the same as the South Pole, only opposite.

    Thus racism and antiracism are the same: exhibiting a nauseating interest in race.

    Nonracism is in a completely different category.

    Next question.

    Nice.

    OT one of the lesser but still tragic losses of wokeness has been the erasure of Norm Macdonald’s youtube podcast. My god, it may have been a bit too vulgar for some of the iSteve commentariat but Norm hadn’t been that funny since Weekend Update.

    The Stephen Merchant episode was particularly good without veering too far into the vulgar like the Gilbert Gottfried episode.

    Stephen (sarcastically): good to see I’m breaking the trend of only having white males on.
    Norm (with no hesitation): Well ya see it’s a comedy podcast.

    If I was a black guy I would worry that people would assume that I take assholes like Henry Rogers seriously, just because I was black. But I am not black, and I have to doubt that there is a silent black majority that shares my view.

    Fifty years ago Kendi’s career pinnacle would have been as a preposterous pastor of a shabby storefront church.

    The trailer for the new Dune movie has dropped and it is fascinating. Firstly someone i had not heard of until about two days ago called Zendaya plays Chani. She clearly represents the promise of much isteve content in the future as an attractive rashida jones successor.

    Overall the casting is very interesting as director Dennis Villenueve, usually very good, seems to have tried to keep a monochrome look to the movie, but still needs to work within hollywood assumptions. So we have “minorities” oscar isaac (pale already) playing the father of a character played by a european american actor, zendaya, dave batista (part filipino), jason momoa (part hawaiian). The characters batista and momoa play both seem to literally have white paint of some sort on them. To be fair both guys are also cast for their physiques and charisma, but the way he can keep what seems to be his vision while still being diverse seems notable.

    Villeneuve’s DUNE is the only movie I was ever hyped for.
    Having grown on Lem’s fables I’m well used to diversity of the day.
    Dennis is a producer on the Dune Sisterhood TV series as well, coming along this winter afaik.

    There are many good bios of Stalin. I’ve read several.

    Still sitting on my bookshelf, on my wait list, is Stalin: the Court of the Red Tsar, by Simon Sebag Montefiore. You’ll find many more on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

    Stalin was very well read, he edited Pravda for many years and was very interested in (and concerned with) the arts, especially literature, poetry, etc. Most high ranking Bolsheviks were very well educated in the classics and especially Russian literature, film and the arts.

    As some have mentioned his hair, it was usually retouched in all of the photos. It didn’t stay jet black and was like most men, thinning. Undoubtedly dyed and touched up.

    Accounts of his appearance (personal, not photos) was that he was fairly short, almost “dwarfish” and had a withered left arm. He carefully maintained his “man of steel” image. He had a crude sense of humor but could be sharp witted. Like many of his comrades, especially later, he was probably a high functioning alcoholic. Psychopathic.

    Stayed up very late, slept in till the afternoon. Vampire like. The only family member he didn’t hate persecute, or seriously ignore, etc. was his mother. He seemed to fear her until she eventually died.

    I sense you probably don't care, but for the record Catholicism doesn't teach that it is a sin when an immoral thought arises spontaneously in the mind. Rather, it becomes sinful only if you willfully dwell on the thought or act upon it.

    To quote St. Alphonsus Liguori: "Some . . . are afraid that every bad thought that presents itself to the mind is a sin. This is an error. It is not the bad thought, but the consent to it, that is sinful . . . where there is no consent there can be no sin."

    Replies: @Papinian, @Mike1

    I sense you probably don’t care, but for the record Catholicism does actually teach that “immoral thought” is bad in real life. Catholic teachers and priests employ no nuance when teaching this concept. You may in theological email threads but I’m sure you are well aware that this is not conveyed to ordinary people.

    In 2013, Kendi married Sadiqa Kendi, a pediatric emergency medicine doctor,[4] in Jamaica in a ceremony officiated by Kendi’s parents.[35] The wedding ceremony ended with a naming ceremony of their new last name, “Kendi”, which means “the loved one” in the language of the Meru people of Kenya.[35] Kendi changed his middle name to Xolani, a Xhosa and Zulu word for “peace.”[9][7]

    In January 2018, a colonoscopy indicated that Kendi had cancer. A further test revealed that he had stage 4 colon cancer that had spread into his liver. After six months of chemotherapy and surgery that summer, Kendi was cancer free.[36]

    Kendi is a vegan.[37]
