From iSteve commenter HypnoToad666:

These repetitive NYT bias articles are like computer generated, fill-in-the blank Mad Libs:

The elite field of [______] has a diversity problem. Only [___]% of the leading members of the field are women or people of color. Women in the field have complained of harassment and bullying. For example, [insert allusion to unspecified, unproven allegations by unnamed women].

The problem has been admitted by leading men in the field, such as [insert name of cucky male who doesn’t want to lose his job], who says “I admit we have a problem, but we are trying to to do better in the future.”

Discrimination deniers claim success in the field is based on merit. But this is debunked by a study by [obscure SJW sociologist], who concludes in [obscure cherry-picked study based on non-representative sample that will never replicate] that women are innately equal to men and any disparity is therefore due to bias.

As a result, experts agree that the problem should be addressed by [insert recommendation that involves more affirmative action for women and more jobs for diversity bureaucrats].

    I am a Southerner, a person of a different ethnic and cultural group.

    Unlike the rest of us Yanks (not “Yankees”, a much smaller group), you folks just love, love, love, love, love them Negroes. Cain’t get enough.

    My opposition to immigration comes from…

    …the Great Betrayal of 1808, when the Right Kind of Immigration was ended for good, by those insufferable interfering antidiversitarians.

    What matters to me is the preservation of my people and the assurance of our future and of our ability to decide our own destiny.

    Your people didn’t become a majority in South Carolina or Mississippi until the Second World War. You can thank General Sherman for that, though it took some time.

  3. Bravo and LOL. That’s a good one.

    OT: Trump campaign manager and quant jock Brad Parscale just appeared in an interview on Fox News. He sounds very confident and in control of a well-funded project that is both deep and wide. According to him, proprietary data looks better than any of us might guess. He debunked the fake news that there is an exodus of suburban women. He also claimed that they might have direct targeting of every individual likely Trump voter by election time.

    It’s simpler than that: Find a field in which they don’t have absolute dominance (e.g. because it still has strong selection based on merit), and target it. It needs to be a field that has considerable cultural power/influence. Thus, writers for late-night shows, science, and computer programming are good targets. Electricians and auto mechanics are not.

    tl;dw

    1) controversy – an inequity is spotted
    2) outrage – noise gets kicked up about it
    3) infiltration – the victim promises to hire better, brings in aggrieved people
    4) convergence – those people pull the organization toward social justice instead of whatever it was doing, before.

    Midterm results show a massive exodus. Kristen Sinema is the Senator from Arizona.

    White women are the natural source of poz. Inside every Suburban White woman is a Kristen Sinema.

    White dudes didn’t vote for Sinema. White women refugees welcome everywhere. It wouldn’t matter if every White dude was a MMA cage fighter. But that’s not in the cards.

    The fundamental interests of White men and women are not only mutually exclusive but innately hostile.

  22. Discrimination deniers…

    When it comes to disease and medical research, the complaint was lack of discrimination. All the studies were taken on white male adults. But if people are the same, why would that matter?

    …that women are innately equal to men and any disparity is therefore due to bias.

    Unless the disparity favors women. As Jennifer Roback Morse encapsulates the whole of feminism, “Men and women are exactly the same. Except women are better.”

  23. anon[284] • Disclaimer says:

    “Please cite sources for your claim of increased black and Hispanic fertility.”

    By “increased” I’m sure he meant “higher”. The black fertility rate is around 1.8, below replacement but higher than the white rate, and the Hispanic rate is around 2.0, at replacement level. So, the white population is shrinking while other groups either remain steady or shrink at a smaller rate, all while immigration increases their raw numbers. And I also happen to agree with the rest of his points. “Whites” aren’t going to unify, they’ll just flee like they did in Zimbabwe or just take abuse like they do in South Africa. The only real hope was to exploit white ethnic and regional differences/loyalties in an effort to induce a partition whereby at least some of the old America could survive. But that may be too late and too unpopular as well.

    The fundamental crux of the immigration problem that seems to be emerging is that a highly patriotic Americanized white population cannot successful rebut immigrant groups that are labeled as American by the establishment. Since “American” means anything, anyone can be an American, so they are forced to support their immigration because to do otherwise would be unAmerican. I believe this is the argument Cortez is floating, or something like it.

    Personally, I don’t consider myself to be an American; heresy around these parts for sure. I am a Southerner, a person of a different ethnic and cultural group. My opposition to immigration comes from a desire to protect the lands, culture, and blood of my people (what little is left). Arguments revolving around GDP or Social Security or birthrates or crime or IQ or education mean nothing to me. What matters to me is the preservation of my people and the assurance of our future and of our ability to decide our own destiny. THAT is how immigration arguments could have been defeated. Perhaps if the South hadn’t Americanized, it could have threatened secession and such a threat might have brought the deep state to the negotiating table* to reduce legal immigration. I still think that is your Hail Mary that just might work as the fourth quarter closes.

    *Before you recite the ‘receive more than pay’ argument, there is a very good reason why the deep state will not want to let a single bit of its Southern territory secede, even a single county: the Chinese are expanding across Africa and the Caribbean and South would make excellent staging locations from which to supply Chinese operations in North, Central, and South America…and the Dirt People hate the Chinese less than the Cloud People do according to the polls, moreso if they come with offers of financial support and cultural respect.

    Don’t count on that. It was obviously stupid for Zimbabwe to run out white farmers but they did it anyway, and South Africa is threatening a repeat despite seeing the aftermath of a similar action in their back yard. Likely, some element of the deep state my try this only to be overruled by the natives. Democracy is mob rule and short-term thinking. And the polls show non-whites don’t really have much beef with the Chinese, so I’m not sure that would fly anyway. Why would POC give up lucrative corporate positions to combat a China they don’t care much about? Patriotism is a white thing.

    Your reasoning is sound as far as it goes but I expect you overlook his point: since white women seem to have decided en masse due to recent sociological nightmares (feminism, women’s so-called liberation, birth-control, rampant divorce-rape for cash and prizes, etc.) that they had rather all share Chad Thundercock, Hunky Investment Banker & Neurosurgeon, taking their turn with him, say, once a month, than be with Joe Normal every night, maybe if they could all be assured of getting a nice chunk of Chad Thundercock’s resources via divorce rape or even just happily remain married to him, then maybe more of the women would be having babies: They’re much more inclined to let Chad put a bun in the oven than they are Joe, you see.

    Agree: Germany tried suicide twice the old fashioned way – by being badly beaten in a war they could not possibly win. The Confederacy chose that approach as well. Russia tried it by allowing themselves to be ruled by gangsters and genocidal maniacs. Merkel took a more feminine approach to suicide, by actually inviting a conquering hostile foreign horde right into the gates. America is trying a combination of opening the borders to a foreign peasantry – who are allowed to vote and therefore rule, IQ lowering dysgenics and a rigid code to ensure mediocrity of performance. There are indeed so many ways for a nation to commit suicide.

    The fundamental interests of White men and women are not only mutually exclusive but innately hostile.

    Instead of an assertion that is biologically impossible–for any species, sub-species, race or population–how about a much simpler one:

    Women are more compliant (which is a good thing) and anxious-about/cued-to social approval/status than men, so a much more swayed by the establishment narrative and more hesitant to oppose it then men.

    Note: Historically, this is fine, even beneficial. In a normal society “the narrative” is “conservative” it works–not surprisingly–to continue the existing social structures and ergo power relationships. In any civilized society, its message to women is “get married, have babies, take care of your children”–what’s necessary to propagate the civilization on into the future. (A civilization/nation not doing that would die.)

    But we are not in a normal society. We are in a society where the narrative has been hijacked by a hostile elite. The globohomo narrative–not surprisingly–works for the continuation of existing power relationships (helps the rich stay rich) but does not work for the continuation of the people of the nation, because the elite is not of the people of the nation, does not care about them and sees them as replacable.

    ~~~

    The “woman problem” definitely is one of the six or seven pillars of our crisis.

    But conservatives/nationalists should really keep the above “social-approval” notion near the front of their minds. There is a big, big win to be had if we can craft an alternative–“for the love of your children and their future”–nationalist narrative. If we can “out” the whole minoritarian, “nation of immigrants”, globo-homo narrative for what it is to a nation’s people–selling out the intersts of your children–and get women to start seeing nationalism for what it is–loving your children and wanting the best for them–… globohomo will be in a world of hurt.

    Orthodox Mormons are not polygamous. A few heretics disowned by the official Mormon church are polygamous.

    This is true today, but it wasn’t always so. Orthodox LDS used to practise polygamy. They abandoned it so that Utah would be eligible to join the Union as a State, which it did in 1896. The breakaway polygamous sects are faithful to the original Mormon teaching.

    It isn’t only the NYT. The same bunk occurs in the monthly journal of the STEM professional body that I belong to – and I am sure in many others too. It becomes quite painful to read the journal because it is clear that they would prefer 60% of their white male membership to f*** off and die, so that women or minorities can take their jobs.

    In this Mad Lib view, it is not sufficient to resign one’s job and be self-employed, or to retire and become an amateur scientist, because these categories also have an excess of white men. Only death or lobotomy will suffice. The bias against white men does not lead to greater numbers of women or minorities in the profession, it simply has the effect of making some of the white men feel uncomfortable, while giving others the illusion that they are participating in progress.

    White men are paying an annual subscription to be told each month that they do not deserve to be doing their job; but for most of them, it would be a career-limiting move to question this orthodoxy.
