This Exploding Sledgehammer Fiesta is an annual event in San Juan de la Vega in Mexico. Not surprisingly, as many as 50 celebrants are wounded each year.

The novel Stones for Ibarra was written by an upper crust American woman, Harriet Doerr (played by Glenn Close in the movie), the granddaughter of the Huntington Library robber baron, whose husband decided they should move to Mexico to re-open the gold mine that was stolen from his gringo ancestors during the Mexican Revolution. Every month they get invited to a local festival, at which a good time is had by all until somebody is mortally injured. When she asks about the latest maimed boy, she is always told by a padre, in effect, “It’s a shame he lost a body part, but something like that always happens at the Festival. But what are you going to do? Not celebrate the Exploding Sledgehammer Fiesta? I don’t think so!”

But that was like 65 years ago. Yet not all that much seems to have changed in Mexico.

I have this vague impression that the continuing crappiness of Mexican culture is in part a passive-aggressive anti-gentrification strategy to keep gringos from overrunning Mexico. Mexicans know the climate in Mexico is much nicer than in Illinois and Pennsylvania, so it would be only natural for Americans to retire to nice, cheap Mexico. But they’d rather keep Mexico Mexican and not have a lot of Americans around acting like they lived there. Hence, the continuing high accident rate.

  1. You’ve mentioned that theory before, but I think the Mexicans would keep Mexico nicer if they could and just restrict American settlement via legal restrictions on their visas, real estate purchases, etc.

    BTW, how come no one thinks it’s crazy that we tolerate criminal organizations smuggling drugs and people into our country from Mexico? If the cartels had Muslim names, would we put up with this? It makes no sense.

    I’m not suggesting we get sucked into any regime change war in Mexico, but why not have the U.S. military operate some distance into Mexico, and interdict smuggling operations on their side of the border? We could arrest coyotes and drug smugglers there, and detain migrants where U.S. courts have no jurisdiction. Then, instead of having to adjudicate bogus asylum claims, we could load them on planes and fly them to some third party we pay to take them, like Colombia.

    Offer the Mexican government the opportunity to invite American troops in, to participate in “joint operations” as a face-saving measure. But send them in regardless. Really, if the POTUS has the authority to send troops into Syria he has the authority to send them into Mexico. Let the 9th Circuit seethe; they can’t do anything about military operations in either country.

    The reason none of this is done is sheer lack of imagination. I tossed out something similar a year ago on another website that prides itself on its intelligence, and...crickets. Not disagreement. Just bafflement.

    No need to send them across the border when Mexican soldiers (guarding the Sinaloa Cartel) can freely enter over the border and disarm U.S. troops.

    MEXICAN SOLDIERS QUESTION, DISARM TWO U.S. ARMY TROOPS IN APPARENT CONFUSION ABOUT BORDER LOCATION, INCIDENT DOCUMENTS REVEAL

    BY JAMES LAPORTA ON 4/19/19

    Two U.S. Army soldiers sat in an unmarked Chevrolet Tahoe owned by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on the west side of an El Paso County, Texas, Colonia known as Las Pampas.

    It was April 13, and the Army sergeant and private had set up a hasty observation post north of the Rio Grande River, but south of the border fence in U.S. territory. The soldiers were members of B Battery, 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment, out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington.

     

    The U.S. military is strictly for the interests of the Anglo-Zionist empire, not for protecting America or Americans. It’s funny how many conservatives bitch about the flood of illegals yet fully support Zionist interests (Sean Hannity, Free Republic, et al.). The fact that the GOP establishment doesn’t care about the illegals flooding in should be a clue. The flag, patriotism, “thank you for your service”, is not about America but about being loyal servants of the Anglo-Zionist empire.

  5. It’s just that they’re dumb. Stupidity is the inability to be subtle. Stupid people need BIG STIMULI for an idea to penetrate.

    So aggression means getting in someone’s face and SCREAMING. Only then would the other person who’s probably on your level, get that you’re angry. University students on the other hand had to create the word microaggressions to describe devastating someone with casual remarks.

    Telling the world about your wealth means BIG GOLD CHAINS, not the understated appearance of the real billionaire.

    Sexuality means GIANT FAKE TITS

    One point contra Fred is that Mexican mayors get murdered in broad daylight by these cartels, who also steal oil from Pemex pipelines.

    But maybe Mexico is something like Sicily in Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, beautiful and idyllic, except for the constant threat of violence, and a level of corruption so high that you don’t trust the competence of the local physician.

    She’ll probably win anyway because she has one of those cute Indian names.

    This kind of stuff keeps the spanish mexicans away from the Indian Mexicans. Mexico is still divided along racial lines 500 years after the conquest. Not wearing sandals is still a huge deal in Mexico, the Spanish wore boots and the indians wore sandals. There are other markers for who is which race in Mexico, but race is more vague in el beanerstan after 500 years of race mixing and so Mexicans are more comfortable using the term class. Exploding hammers sounds like a very low class activity. An upper class activity for a young man could be an expensive and rare sport like American football or rugby. The middle class plays soccer.

    If your daughter comes home with a hammer bomb guy every Mexican father would know what to expect.

    Exclusive neighborhoods (more or less spanish Mexico) in Mexico are as nice as white neighborhoods in the USA.

    This is inevitable. Latin America basically has a spectrum from 100% white to 100% Amerind which correlates with socioeconomic status. Of course Negroids aren't even on the spectrum..

  21. Viva Mexico! This sort of dangerous, “you could poke your eye out,” activity has been mostly driven out of American culture. Of course, I would require the participants to wear eye protection myself.

    In Florence, Italy, they have a festival for Easter called the Scoppo Allo Carto. The bishop of Florence lights a rocket-powered dove that flies on a wire out of the cathedral during Easter mass and ends up on a 14th century cart loaded with fireworks, with a VERY large crowd located no more than 30 feet away. Ridiculously dangerous and wonderfully Italy. Go if you’re near Florence tomorrow.

    To me lovely celebrations all of them, most of them worthy to see before one dies. To a snobbish HBD shitposter considering everything that isnt opera or golf is “crappy”? Can’t say I am shocked. Now is this the American way to keep foreigners out?

  32. the granddaughter of the Huntington Library robber baron

    This “robber baron” connected the far-flung settlements of SoCal long before the freeways.

    Henry followed his uncle Collis into the railway business. The latter was “intercity” and his brother “interurban”, if that makes any sense.

    The “other” Huntington Library is in his hometown. There were already so many prominent Huntingtons by his day– Weyl and Possony called them the most accomplished family in America, all told– that he started naming places he invested in “Oneonta” instead. They’re in Alabama and Kentucky, and parts of Imperial Beach and Pasadena. (The famous Oregon gorge was named for some boat with no Huntington connection.)

    From a real ad in Huntington’s day:“Oneonta By The Sea THE PASADENA OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY… “

    • Replies: @Hibernian
    Huntington WV is named after Collis, originally from upstate NY. He took the money he made from the Southern Pacific, or a big chunk of it anyway, and built the Chesapeake and Ohio which connected Hampton Roads with Cincinnati. He also founded Newport News and the Newport News Ship and Drydock Co. (Not sure if that name is totally accurate.)

    Watching that video, I feel confirmed that most Mexican men are rednecks at heart. That's sort of meant to be a compliment.

    The typical blue collar Southerner has more in common with a first generation Mexican than the tenth generation American black male. Kind of another indication that blacks are history's losers.

    Regular blacks are rednecks too, although admittedly more severe. Love ya mean it rednecks, but y’all are no bargain either.

    One point contra Fred is that Mexican mayors get murdered in broad daylight by these cartels, who also steal oil from Pemex pipelines.

    But maybe Mexico is something like Sicily in Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, beautiful and idyllic, except for the constant threat of violence, and a level of corruption so high that you don’t trust the competence of the local physician.

  36. Asymmetry. Mexico faces no risk in sending their excess people here. Let’s annex Baja to start to fix that issue. The more they send the more we annex.

    Offer free land in Baja for all comers. Like Napoleon granting peasants small plots of land. Get major oil companies in on the deal.

    Oil companies + lots of new land holders = winning power coalition. Israeli settler politics.

    I have this vague impression that the continuing crappiness of Mexican culture is in part a passive-aggressive anti-gentrification strategy to keep gringos from overrunning Mexico. Mexicans know the climate in Mexico is much nicer than in Illinois and Pennsylvania, so it would be only natural for Americans to retire to nice, cheap Mexico. But they’d rather keep Mexico Mexican and not have a lot of Americans around acting like they lived there. Hence, the continuing high accident rate.

    Many "ostensible whites" on all of Latin Americans are light mestizos, mulattos and pardos.

    I saw a thing in a Brit newspaper on Lionel Ritchie's (who is regarded as certifiably blackety black in the US, though he's a dead ringer for one of the Oak Ridge boys-or was it the Statler's, I get them confused-except for skin tone, and even that's ambiguous under the TV lights) daughter Sofia.

    This kind of thing has to be much commoner in, say, Argentina or Chile, than here. Over here, most people who think they are white really are: over there, not so much.

    As societies, Argentina or Chile beat the hell out of Haiti or Zimbabwe, but they are not like the United States. I suspect that the above is a leading reason why: Ostensible Whites are not quite white as a group. The right edge of the bell curve is pretty well circumcised.

    It's just that they're dumb. Stupidity is the inability to be subtle. Stupid people need BIG STIMULI for an idea to penetrate.

    So aggression means getting in someone's face and SCREAMING. Only then would the other person who's probably on your level, get that you're angry. University students on the other hand had to create the word microaggressions to describe devastating someone with casual remarks.

    Telling the world about your wealth means BIG GOLD CHAINS, not the understated appearance of the real billionaire.

    Sexuality means GIANT FAKE TITS
    Strength means BIG MUSCLES
    Food means BIG PORTIONS and LOTSA SUGAR

    So yeah, of course a party needs deafening explosions. How else would they know it's different from any other day?

    “It’s just that they’re dumb.”

    The big stimuli phenomenon you describe can be found in every country where diversity has been imposed. Subtlety and nuance work best in homogeneous groups and cultures.

    This kind of stuff keeps the spanish mexicans away from the Indian Mexicans. Mexico is still divided along racial lines 500 years after the conquest. Not wearing sandals is still a huge deal in Mexico, the Spanish wore boots and the indians wore sandals. There are other markers for who is which race in Mexico, but race is more vague in el beanerstan after 500 years of race mixing and so Mexicans are more comfortable using the term class. Exploding hammers sounds like a very low class activity. An upper class activity for a young man could be an expensive and rare sport like American football or rugby. The middle class plays soccer.

  52. I can think of a few gems of Mexican culture, like the Rivera and Khalo paintings, and the stuccoed arches and decorative ironwork of the older public buildings aren’t anything to sneer at.

    But there are a lot of top 20%ers in the USA, advocating for older Americans to retire in foreign countries. They want them to spend their SS money in other countries.

    Subtract that money, along with what each year’s 1.7 — 1.5 influx of new legal immigrants and what the 40 million illegal immigrants are sending out of the US’s economy each year to relatives in foreign nations. See how long the coffers that keep America from descending into a cultural s******e stay full.

    Young, “vibrant,” womb-productive foreign nationals are already sending $120 billion in remittances out of the USA each year, with $28 billion going to Mexico just from the illegal aliens working in America. You’d think that Mexico could use some of that remittance money to add some safety precautions to its festival planning.

    Those remittance-sending illegal immigrants have traceable income so low that they qualify for multi layers of monthly welfare for their US-born kids. That is $113 billion in pay-per-birth welfare per year, going to just the illegal immigrants who provide such good—!and cheap!—welfare-assisted labor to American elites, allowing them to reduce their labor expense by not hiring American citizens.

    Elites don’t want to send their “vibrant,” young servants back to Mexico, just the oldies who were born and raised in the USA, the old, frail citizens who aren’t that useful to them. Put a sweet baby / family pic on it; the motivation is so touching. Send in the Hallmark design team!

    It might help retirees to go abroad to cheaper nations, assuming the SS program stays intact when the stimulus effect is reduced. But it would help elites if the program that Americans in the bottom 80% contribute either 7.65 or 15.3% of every dime they ever earn goes broke.

    Elites pay only up to the SS-taxation cap, a tiny fraction of their income in some cases, but if the program is dismantled piece by piece, they will not need to worry about any more cap movement.

    It is interesting how elites resent that program, a program that Americans pay into from modest means, but they do not resent the 100% free stuff that enables their cheap servants to work for so little: their free EBT food; their reduced-cost rent; their monthly cash assistance; their free electricity; their $6,431 sex-and-reproduction reward check at tax time, the tax-paying ones anyway.

    The immigrant servants of elites, specifically those in womb-productive households, get the refundable child tax credit when they report their income, rather than working under the table and not contributing to the SS fund that has finally stopped running surpluses after a slow gutting.

    A great migration of SS recipients to foreign lands might help single elderly Americans afford rent that has increased by 72% since 1995, but it won’t reduce the cost of rent for Americans under 65, most of whom who aren’t eligible for wage-boosting, unearned, monthly income from .gov or child tax credit cash up to $6,431.

    Although the elderly are besmirched by economists for not spending as much as the sex-and-birthing crowd, the absence of their spending would affect the number of jobs in America, a country already job-stripped by decades of offshoring to countries like Mexico.

    The offshoring and outsourcing of jobs to Third World nations has deprived the SS trust fund of contributions, with elites seeking to distract from this fact in many ways, including telling underemployed US citizens that the many illegal immigrants working under-the-table are propping up the SS trust fund.

    PT Barnum said a sucker is born every minute, not just around the globe, but also in the USA, and elites are counting on that sucker birthrate staying high.

    The “giant sucking sound” of SS recipients crossing the border might help all of the wonderful family people, constantly posting their show-off-baby pics at work.

    Working parents would not have to help the elderly parents who raised their kids for them while they worked and while they went on a ton of lengthy vacations to places like resort hotels in Mexico, thanks to their absenteeism-friendly, family-friendly, above-firing, crony-parent jobs.

    It’s kind of hard to help the grumpy elderly parents with chores when they are a thousand miles away. Oh well, the moms in America’s many 98%-mom-staffed, voted-best-for-moms jobs don’t like posting the show-off-elderly-parents pics at work as much anyway. Adios, SS Trust Fund.

    Many "ostensible whites" on all of Latin Americans are light mestizos, mulattos and pardos.

    I saw a thing in a Brit newspaper on Lionel Ritchie's (who is regarded as certifiably blackety black in the US, though he's a dead ringer for one of the Oak Ridge boys-or was it the Statler's, I get them confused-except for skin tone, and even that's ambiguous under the TV lights) daughter Sofia. She looks "White Enough" for most Americans to call her white:

    The average guy at a National Alliance convention would give her a good jazzing if he had the opportunity (which, he won't).

    This kind of thing has to be much commoner in, say, Argentina or Chile, than here. Over here, most people who think they are white really are: over there, not so much.

    As societies, Argentina or Chile beat the hell out of Haiti or Zimbabwe, but they are not like the United States. I suspect that the above is a leading reason why: Ostensible Whites are not quite white as a group. The right edge of the bell curve is pretty well circumcised.

    In regard to average admixture by social class and regions, a genetic study indicated that the genepool of the average residents of Santiago, which is Chile’s capital and geographic centre, to be 51% European and 49% Amerindian DNA for the lower class, 70% European and 30% Amerindian DNA for the middle class, and 91% European and 9% Amerindian DNA for the upper class.

Huge 10 foot wall around the place and guawrds. The public spaces in the neighborhood include 2 small parks with swimming pools. All very clean no rubbish.

    Huntington WV is named after Collis, originally from upstate NY. He took the money he made from the Southern Pacific, or a big chunk of it anyway, and built the Chesapeake and Ohio which connected Hampton Roads with Cincinnati. He also founded Newport News and the Newport News Ship and Drydock Co. (Not sure if that name is totally accurate.)

    You've mentioned that theory before, but I think the Mexicans would keep Mexico nicer if they could and just restrict American settlement via legal restrictions on their visas, real estate purchases, etc.

    BTW, how come no one thinks it's crazy that we tolerate criminal organizations smuggling drugs and people into our country from Mexico? If the cartels had Muslim names, would we put up with this? It makes no sense.

    I'm not suggesting we get sucked into any regime change war in Mexico, but why not have the U.S. military operate some distance into Mexico, and interdict smuggling operations on their side of the border? We could arrest coyotes and drug smugglers there, and detain migrants where U.S. courts have no jurisdiction. Then, instead of having to adjudicate bogus asylum claims, we could load them on planes and fly them to some third party we pay to take them, like Colombia.

    Offer the Mexican government the opportunity to invite American troops in, to participate in "joint operations" as a face-saving measure. But send them in regardless. Really, if the POTUS has the authority to send troops into Syria he has the authority to send them into Mexico. Let the 9th Circuit seethe; they can't do anything about military operations in either country.

    If the cartels had Muslim names, would we put up with this?

    What makes you think there aren’t drug cartels with Islamic names already? I mean, there’s an oil cartel, isn’t there?

    Watching that video, I feel confirmed that most Mexican men are rednecks at heart. That's sort of meant to be a compliment.

    The typical blue collar Southerner has more in common with a first generation Mexican than the tenth generation American black male. Kind of another indication that blacks are history's losers.

    This is also exactly right and very noticeable if you like guns, dirt bikes, fast cars, etc. and live in a state with a sizable Hispanic population, although my comparison class of choice would probably be SWPL Mayflower descendants rather than blacks.

    SWPL Mayflower descendants
     
    Mayflower descendants are quite spread out-- it's been 399 years-- and more than a few are "deplorables". (I may be one myself-- it's even odds.)

    Their church merged with a Dutch denomination, both being Calvinist in origin, and are now the UCC. As with corporations, these megamergers are a sign of decay rather than strength and growth. (Acquisitions are another story.) Look what happened to the Methodists in Canada and Australia.

    My father was a Congregationalist. He attended a Presbyterian church at the end, even though he lived in New York's Capital District, where the Reformed and Congregationalists should have put the Scots-Irish Presbyterians in third place, just among Calvinists. It shouldn't have been hard to find a UCC congregation had he wanted to.

    I never talked with him about this-- I didn't know it while he was alive-- but I suspect he didn't like the merger.

    I think multiracialism generally doesn't work. More importantly almost all major racial views in America can not create a sustainable multiracial society.

    The main reason why multiethnic, monoracial societies can often (but not always e.g. Yugoslavia) work is that there can be real merging of the tribes. The modern nation state depends on the pro-social myth that all members of an ethnic group have the same ancestry and that ethnic groups are eternal. This myth fails to work if people are phenotypically too different from each other.

    Hence any feasible multiracial state has to be an empire. You can have a stable republic / constitutional monarchy, a stable multiracial state but not both.

    The only feasible and functional multiracial society I have known is Singapore. It works through a strong Leviathan and refusal to admit Negroids. Immigration has to be meritocratic and there can be no citizen self-rule.

    I can think of a few gems of Mexican culture, like the Rivera and Khalo paintings, and the stuccoed arches and decorative ironwork of the older public buildings aren’t anything to sneer at.

    But there are a lot of top 20%ers in the USA, advocating for older Americans to retire in foreign countries. They want them to spend their SS money in other countries.

    Subtract that money, along with what each year’s 1.7 — 1.5 influx of new legal immigrants and what the 40 million illegal immigrants are sending out of the US’s economy each year to relatives in foreign nations. See how long the coffers that keep America from descending into a cultural s******e stay full.

    Young, “vibrant,” womb-productive foreign nationals are already sending $120 billion in remittances out of the USA each year, with $28 billion going to Mexico just from the illegal aliens working in America. You’d think that Mexico could use some of that remittance money to add some safety precautions to its festival planning.

    Those remittance-sending illegal immigrants have traceable income so low that they qualify for multi layers of monthly welfare for their US-born kids. That is $113 billion in pay-per-birth welfare per year, going to just the illegal immigrants who provide such good—!and cheap!—welfare-assisted labor to American elites, allowing them to reduce their labor expense by not hiring American citizens.

    Elites don’t want to send their “vibrant,” young servants back to Mexico, just the oldies who were born and raised in the USA, the old, frail citizens who aren’t that useful to them. Put a sweet baby / family pic on it; the motivation is so touching. Send in the Hallmark design team!

    It might help retirees to go abroad to cheaper nations, assuming the SS program stays intact when the stimulus effect is reduced. But it would help elites if the program that Americans in the bottom 80% contribute either 7.65 or 15.3% of every dime they ever earn goes broke.

    Elites pay only up to the SS-taxation cap, a tiny fraction of their income in some cases, but if the program is dismantled piece by piece, they will not need to worry about any more cap movement.

    It is interesting how elites resent that program, a program that Americans pay into from modest means, but they do not resent the 100% free stuff that enables their cheap servants to work for so little: their free EBT food; their reduced-cost rent; their monthly cash assistance; their free electricity; their $6,431 sex-and-reproduction reward check at tax time, the tax-paying ones anyway.

    None of those three are thoroughly gentrified or even near it, especially there's been resistance in Pilsen, and Humboldt Park is historically Puerto Rican.

    Historically, Chicago was full of white people. Puerto Ricans came to Humboldt Park in the 1970s. Before that it was full of wypipo.

    Similarly, though many people think of “historically black neighborhoods” in Chicago, most of the black population migrated here between the 1940s and 1960s.
