Melbourne, Australia now has an “African gangs” problems because it’s the Current Year so of course Melbourne has an African gangs problem. Why wouldn’t it? It would be racist for Melbourne not to be plagued by black muggers.

In fact, according to the Australian Establishment, Melbourne has two African gangs problems: the African gangs of street criminals themselves, and, far worse, the Australians who have noticed and even talked about this new problem that the politicians have imported for them to endure.

From SBS News:

Melbourne mayors call for end to ‘African gangs’ talk

By Evan Young

Eight Melbourne mayors have called for unity and end to the talk about so-called “African gangs” which has repeatedly made news headlines this year.

African-Australian leaders in Victoria have said the “gang” rhetoric is an example of fear-mongering and has vilified their community to the point some now feel unwelcome in the state. …

Mayors from Melbourne’s Darebin, Moreland, Whittlesea, Hume, Yarra, Knox, Monash and Melton councils joined Australian-African community leader Maker Mayek in a public show of solidarity in the suburb of Brunswick on Monday.

“We stand together to say that we value the contribution of these residents, deeply appreciate the diversity of culture and experience they bring to our cities,” City of Moreland Mayor John Kavanagh said. …

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton made headlines in January after claiming Melbournians were “scared to go out at restaurants” at night because of “African gang” violence.

Political talk has raged at a federal, state and local government level ever since. Media coverage has also been continuous.

With Victorians set to head to the polls later this year, City of Whittlesea Mayor Kris Pavlidis accused politicians returning to the “African gang” rhetoric of turning the rift into an election issue.

How can Australia be a democracy when rifts are turned into election issues? The essence of democracy is that elections shouldn’t decide anything.

“The role of political leadership is to unite diverse communities, ensure vulnerable people are given the tools they need to thrive and to dismantle unhelpful stereotypes and prejudice – not to amplify them,” Cr Pavlidis said.

  1. Man, it’s getting to be where you’d better go see the world really soon or there will be no point. It’s not just the castles in Germany, cafes in France, ruins and cathedrals in Italy, strange flora and fauna Downunder, etc. It’s the people and cultures that lots of us have gone and partaken of that made trips overseas special.

    Why leave the suburbs of Detroit or Chicago to go to any of these places if it’s gonna feel like you are downtown, where you don’t go much …. for a damn good reason?

    Do they have “refugees” in the Galapagos Islands, does anyone know? Maybe that’s where we’ll go. It’s all turtles nowadays anyway. It’s turtles all the way down.

    Silly me. For some reason I thought the role of political leadership was…to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…, but then I obviously don’t understand Australian-Africanese.

    Meanwhile, an Aussie MP uses “final solution” to describe popular vote on Muslim and African immigration. A conspiracy theorist might wonder if he used that phrase to discredit complaints about immigration.

  6. Anonymous[323] • Disclaimer says:

    Democracy applied to immigration policy is literally Nazism, though.

    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/aug/14/australian-senator-calls-for-final-solution-to-immigration-problem

    … He said neither the former Labor prime minister Gough Whitlam, nor any subsequent government, had asked Australians what kind of immigration they wanted. “What we do need a plebiscite for is to decide who comes here.”

    Anning declared on Tuesday the reasons “for ending all further Muslim immigration are both compelling and self-evident”.

    “The record of Muslims who have already come to this country in terms of rates of crime, welfare dependency and terrorism are the worst of any migrant and vastly exceed another immigrant group,” he said.

    “The majority of Muslims in Australia of working age do not work and exist on welfare. Muslims in New South Wales and Victoria are three times more likely than other groups to be convicted of crimes.”

    “We have black African Muslim gangs terrorising Melbourne, we have Isis-sympathising Muslims trying to go overseas to try and fight for Isis and while all Muslims are not terrorists, certainly all terrorists these days are Muslims.

    “So why would anyone want to bring more of them here?”

    … “In the days of Menzies, immigrants arriving here were not allowed to apply for welfare and that attracted exactly the right sort of hardworking people this country needed”.

    “We should go back to that and ban all immigrants from receiving welfare for the first five years after they arrive,” he said.

    The senator then invoked the term “final solution” in calling for his preferred plebiscite on the “immigration problem”.

    “The final solution to the immigration problem, of course, is a popular vote.”

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-45191315

    An Australian senator has been widely condemned for a speech that invoked the term “final solution” in a call for immigration restrictions based on race.

    … Political opponents denounced his speech as “disgraceful”. Mr Anning said he did not need to apologise.

    “Final solution” was a term infamously used by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

    In his speech, Mr Anning said “the final solution to the immigration problem is a popular vote”.

    … The senator, a former member of Pauline Hanson’s anti-Islam One Nation Party, called for a return to the White Australia Policy – which restricted non-European immigrants from 1901 until the 1960s.

    Labor’s Senate leader Penny Wong, who was born in Malaysia, said the White Australia Policy had been “rightly consigned to the dustbin of history”.

    … Meanwhile, Australia’s first Muslim female senator, Mehreen Faruqi, who filled a vacant seat on Wednesday, said Mr Anning had “spat in the face of millions of Australians, spewing hate and racism”.
    “I’m a Muslim migrant, I’m about to be a Senator and there’s not a damn thing Fraser Anning can do about it,” she wrote in a piece for website Junkee.

    Yep, that attitude sounds about right.

    … [Prime Minister] Turnbull told parliament: “We need to stand up for what we are… the most successful multicultural society in the world, united by democratic values that do not distinguish between race, religion, colour or cultural background.”

    … Mr Katter said he supported Mr Anning’s speech “1000%” but suggested that his colleague did not know much about the Holocaust.

    “He’s smart, but he hasn’t read all the history books,” Mr Katter told reporters.

    There is the official reality of “Gangs, what gangs, there are no gangs except gangs of whites who persecute Africans.”

    Then there is the more useful Alt-Reality that says Gangs are dangerous like packs of hyenas.

    Darwinian selection, etc. Finally, Australia has some usefulness. With a smaller European-descendent population and access to abundant African and South Asian immigrants, Australia will reach critical mass sooner than we do, and we will be able to see what is in store for us, here in the US of A.

    Years ago it was an understood thing that Australians were the biggest “piss-takers” on 4chan. They have a reputation as pranksters, site founder Christopher Poole identified them as the one thing he hated most, and their entire IP range has been banned. In the recent political upheaval I have felt intense closeness to this strange tribe of desert-bound alcoholics, who do not give their loyalty easily, but post in vast numbers. In a Second Amendment thread it is as likely to be an Australian as an American who corrects fallacies and explains the reasoning of things like god-given rights and not having arms in a centralized armory. You would think Hillsdale College or the Rutherfird Society had branches down under.

    The Apex gang is primarily Sudanese. There is not a significant Nigerian population in Melbourne.

    But by “gang” they also mean groups or flash mobs or rioters of 50 or more. They have arrested up to 50 youths at a time, but in most cases they don’t or can’t arrest everyone and ask for a birth certificate. The phrase “of African appearance” is used in the media.

    The authorities say it’s racist to spotlight 50 or more black youths congregating when no fear would be felt about 50 or more white youths. The problem with that is that 0.14 percent (1 in 600) of Melbourners are African, while 6 percent (1 in 12) of the riot arrests are African (a rate 40 times white offenders), and roving mobs of 50 white kids is not a thing in Melbourne to begin with, and would probably not be seen as completely innocent if it were.

    One riot happened after a shoplifting arrest, so you can read between the lines and figure out that roving shoplifting mobs are a problem here as elsewhere. Criminal techniques spread quickly on the internet. Up next: Probably decriminalizing shoplifting because of its disparate impact. I think you’ll also start to see race disappearing from records kept by the police. The media will have to resort to looking at arrestee names and mug shots.

    And, of course, there were no complaints about foreigners bringing social dysfunction in the past (Or indeed in the present) because they were white. Nor were the immigration policies in the US or Australia democratically changed in the past to curtail immigration of such cohorts as would be expected to bring such dysfunction or to which the host population did not feel enough fellow-feeling to put up with any more of them.

    The population this is applied to are Somali Bantu who are severely socially regressed and were simply placed into an industrialised country and predictably collapsed into an underclass. The people living next to them have to deal with large gangs of them acting out in severely anti-social and increasingly violent ways. If they hadn’t been illiterate when they arrived or had some qualifications that allowed them compete better, I’m sure the social dysfunction would be less. But ultimately that’s irrelevant from Australia’s perspective.

    To put this in perspective. There are hardly any of these people and a massive chunk of the youth are directly involved in this. Attacks on the beaches are another new occurrence. It was all just so unnecessary. Some people have been severely beaten and stabbed.

    The sad truth of it is that you’re right. What it really reminds me of is that scene in Dances With Wolves where Kevin Costner’s character is asked why he wants to be posted to the frontier. “I want to see it before it’s gone,” he says. The drunkard carting him there looks at Costner like he’s an idiot. How can something as vast as “the frontier” ever disappear? Costner and his movie audience know better. The movie audience knows it thanks to hindsight, but Costner’s character can see it coming. It’s happening to Europe (and America) and we all know it. Some day far too soon nearly everything that makes Europe truly unique will be gone. It took about 300 years from the discovery of Columbus til whites outnumbered natives in the New World. Third Worlders will outpopulate whites in their native countries in less than a third of that time. People in the future will marvel at how rapidly it all happened, and how idiotic the natives were at giving their country away in the name of a stupid, inane, untested political dogma.

    In murder of Jewish radio host & Chicago mobster lawyer, US government may have falsely targeted white nationalists as the killers:

    David Lane (1938-2007) the author of the most famous white nationalist slogan, the ’14 words’ – “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” – died in prison after over 20 years there, as one of the group convicted for ‘conspiracy’ related to the murder of Chicagoan Alan Berg, a sort of Alex Jones of pre-internet USA radio … but David Lane and his group may have been innocent, targeted specifically because they were white nationalist militia, conveniently in controversy with Berg.

    From Who Killed Alan Berg?:

    Alan Berg (1934-84), was an early leader in exposing the corruption of the USA judicial system, corruption in which Berg admitted complicity during his early career as a lawyer helping mobsters to bend the judges in Chicago, Illinois.

    Ambiguities abound regarding Berg’s killing given that the Chicago mob, the white nationalists, and the US government itself, all had motives for killing the outspoken Alan Berg, with Berg’s potential to become the Alex Jones of his time. As a repentant former participant in corruption, a Jew who had ‘come clean’, Alan Berg was a threat to many.

    As a young lawyer, Berg learned that US courts were all about bribery, and quickly got a high income until he became the ‘go-to’ guy for mobsters. But the guilt of all the corruption tore Alan Berg to pieces … drove him to alcoholism and emotional and marital destruction … To escape from it all, Berg dumped his legal career, moved to Colorado, confronted his drinking, and became a super-popular but abrasive radio personality.

    Exposing the general activities of top Chicago mobsters in corrupting the courts on popular radio, Alan Berg was killed in a classic mafia-style hit. The local prosecutor in Denver thought the evidence that the white nationalists had shot Berg to death, was so insufficient and flimsy he never brought charges against them. But Berg’s killing was quickly blamed by the feds on white nationalists whom Berg had also been attacking on the air.

    If Alan Berg had lived, Berg would likely have gladly conducted a radio show examining all the dodgy elements of the white nationalist convictions. Berg might well have expressed his agreement from experience, about what David Lane wrote about US court procedure:

    “The trial itself is more carefully orchestrated than a Shakespeare play. All evidence and testimony are decided in advance and the judge will tolerate no surprises. If there is any indication that effective defense evidence is forthcoming, the judge will immediately send the jury to another room while the details of the screwing you are getting are smoothed out. In addition, the judge is a highly skilled actor appearing firm but fair when the jury is in the courtroom, and becoming a tyrannical dictator the moment they are gone.”

    You sound like Stephen Miller’s uncle.

  46. A few observations from ground zero:

    1. Mayors of municipalities in Australia have very little practical importance. Municipalities have no responsibilities for law enforcement, or education, or health care. Their key functions are zoning, garbage collection and road maintenance. In short, they barely register for the vast majority of citizens (property developers excepted), and local government elections are a snooze-fest.

    2. The vast majority of Melburnians know that the mayors’ comments are bullshit. We have had a serious problem with African crime for a number of years now and nothing the “goodwhite” local pols say will change that view. Despite this the mayors’ positions are not in jeopardy because hardly anyone gives a toss about local government (see point 1).

    3. Observable African crime is concentrated in a few (but highly visible) streams, which makes the overall crime stats look less scary than the reality. (It hardly needs pointing out to Steve’s readers that Africans aren’t a major concern for our fraud squads, for instance.) Their specialties include “home invasions” (charged as “aggravated burglary”) which usually involve a small group smashing its way into a suburban home and terrifying the occupants. A particular aim of these invasions is to force the residents to hand over car keys. Other favourites of our African brothers are violent robberies of jewellery stores and carjackings. Many (probably most) of these crimes are committed by under-18s who get slaps on the wrist by the Children’s Court and almost always are bailed pending trial. There aren’t a large number of these crimes, but they have a big psychological impact on the community.

    4. Statistics of African crime are seriously understated as the only relevant criterion for which stats are collected is birthplace (stats are not collected for perps’ race) and nowadays many (probably most) of the African crims were born in Australia. So the Australian-born Africans’ crimes get counted as “Australian” rather than “African” in the published stats. Despite this, some crimes show Africans over-represented by a factor of around 100.

    5. Another favoured crime of Africans in Melbourne is rowdy and destructive parties (not at their own homes but at AirBNB places rented using stolen credit cards). It pisses off (and scares) the neighbours (a few of whom get beaten up when they challenge the interlopers), results in serious damage to the properties, but seldom results in arrests (let alone convictions) for the offenders.

    6. On that last point: A feature of African crime in Melbourne is the softly-softly attitude to it by the Victoria Police (law enforcement is a State government responsibility). It is an amusing feature of law enforcement in Victoria that more than once the cars of the riot squad have been smashed up by rowdy Africans, and yet the riot squad have a policy of avoiding making arrests in these situations. Note that these are well-protected and armed police with specialist training in dealing with violent mobs, not some hapless local beat cops.

    7. In November we will have a State election and many Melburnians are itching to throw out the socialist Labor government that presides over this debacle. Yet the opinion polls still have the Labor Party as favourites to win the election, God help us.

    The best way to understand Reconstruction is that it began as punishment of backward whites who failed to bow before the sacred Federal Government and had made that worse by being adamantly opposed to the doubly sacred Emancipation Proclamation. Then Reconstruction became really nasty when those already bad whites dared notice that blacks given power immediately began acting like baboons.

    What good whites learned from that era is that they must slaughter bad whites , and brutally control the bad white survivors, so that the Negroes may shine as Numinous. And they also learned that whites who notice that Negroes are Numinous in ways that recall baboons are to be destroyed politically, culturally, and economically.

In the old days of even last year, they would have published a panel of pictures of the accused, but every time they did that, the pictures invariably showed a surfeit of sun people. This time around they didn’t print pics … I guess seeing 32 people who look pretty distinct from 85% of the English population is just too tiggering, but they did list the 32 names, all of which were names distinctly identified to one socio-economic grouping — names like Husain and Ali.

    “In my series of extended essays entitled “The War on White Australia” I described how Jeωish activism was pivotal in ending the White Australia policy and initiating the mass non-White immigration that is rapidly transforming that nation. In addition, I showed how Jeωish activism was instrumental in establishing multiculturalism as the ideological and legislative basis for social policy in Australia. Recently I explored the Jeωish role in pushing for the enactment and extension of laws banning speech deemed contrary to their interests. Given the profound impact of Jeωish ethno-politics on the Australian nation, nobody will be surprised to learn that Jeωish influence also extends to the determination of Australia’s foreign policy.”

    Those 8 mayors are traitors and deserve a traitors punishment. The only way forward for the white people of the world is to remove the jew, then remove the non whites. Abbos are cannibals and need to be put on reservations and left to their own devices. WHITE AUSTRALIA NOW!!!

And blacks evince pack animal behavior so if one incapacitates a victim, others will join in the assault up to the point of murdering someone lying unconscious in the street.

    type B Americans have a crime rate of 10
    immigrants C have a crime rate of 2
    then
    where’s the benefit to type A Americans?

    all the pro-immigration research i’ve ever read has been built on deliberate mathematical deception like this.

    (actually there is a benefit for those type A Americans who live in cities with lots of type B Americans as if the immigrants replace the type B Americans then the city’s crime rate will go down – on the other hand those type A Americans living outside the cities who receive the displaced type B Americans will see their local crime rate go up – hence “liberals” vs deplorables)

    so basically urban liberals support mass immigration cos it quietly ethnically cleanses the local black population in a way that doesn’t trouble their conscience – as opposed to just fixing the black crime problem (which could easily be done but first they’d have to admit it’s a problem and they can’t do that until their moral masters – the media – admit it first)

If it is not helpful, say it involves “African gangs” terrorizing the citizens of that country, then crickets. Or as Iowahawk says, “Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow.”

But women now are sometimes pushing having their first (and probably only) child into their late 30s and even early 40s, which is just as crazy. I can understand delaying having a 1st child until college graduation (although a lot of mothers I knew in my parent’s generation had their kids 1st and then went back to college when kids reached school age and this worked out fine for them) but it would be better if the expected pattern in UMC circles was undergraduate degree, then baby, then grad school/work.

    Certain Jewish elements and some Australians of European ancestry have pushed open borders mass immigration and nation-wrecking multiculturalism.

    Certain cynical people call Australia a resource cartel rather than a nation.

    When the globalized central banker horseshit ends and the Chinese go belly up and stop importing all the resources from Australia, the resulting economic collapse will allow Australian Anglo-Celts and Australian European Christians to use mass deportations to make Australia White Again.

    It is other than surprising people would take this approach by way of a red herring. Apparently, it’s a ton easier for you to hand wave and dismiss the sources I provided, rather than dig deep and investigate to what extent is the content truthful and accurate.

    Exactly why the meme “Fake News” is leading to a destructive course of action–an inability or an unwillingness to think intelligently on important matters.

    You’re missing the point as is your wont. The conclusions derivative of “studies” discussed in your link propose only that crime rates are reduced in urban areas which receive a significant influx of immigrants. So, at best you’re importing somewhat less criminally inclined Hispanics to displace the All Wold Felony All Stars to exurbs a la Compton.

    From personal experience and relationships with my cop relatives and others it’s a known fact that “immigrant communities” are much harder to police, with specific factors such as language barriers, immigrants not trusting police, and cultures and codes of silence so that witnesses will not cooperate. It’s a joke to pretend that “immigrant communities” themselves aren’t glaring examples of Anarcho-tyranny.

    All of this aside, the academy and the government(s) simply lack credibility to view the issue straight on – I cited the fact that there are recalcitrant elements of the government itself dead set against any attempt at an official tally of resident illegal aliens or to identify criminal perpetrators as illegal aliens when they are, in fact, illegal aliens. Are you proposing that Los Angeles County is doing its due diligence in keeping track of which of its perpetrators are illegal aliens?

    Additionally, your links illegal aliens with all other immigrants going back to the 1970s in a purposeful attempt to mask rates of illegal alien crime – all so that after Mr. Trump speaks of the scourge and lawlessness of illegal entries and overstays you can say “Uh, studies show that immigrants are more law abiding, hurrdeedur!”

    Finally, I’ll dig into your derivatives of “studies” when your side takes a sober look at the fact that the studies reveal that blacks aren’t disproportionately killed by police, and admit that “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” is predicated on a bald lie.

    Call it 40 and you have a deal. That’s about the age that some of my friends’ mothers got their degrees. Most of them got married around age 20 or so and maybe had a year or 2 of college but dropped out to get married, then had kids 1 thru 2 or 3 over the next 10 years and then when the youngest was old enough to fend for himself after school, went back to college. This still gave them enough time in the workforce to collect a teacher’s pension after 20 years (most of them became school teachers).

    Now, these women could afford to do this because it was still possible in postwar America to buy a house on just your husband’s salary. A starter house was $15 or $20k and there were VA loans where you had to put very little down. These were not grand houses – all 5 of you would have to share 1 bathroom and there was no central air-conditioning, and it was located someplace that had been a farm field or an orchard last week – but these are the same houses that go for $1 million + in Silicon Valley today.

    It’s much better to displace your fear and anxiety on imaginary white rapists and sexual harassers.

    Plus, it has the massive benefit of preventing the epidemic of crime from ever stopping. This guarantees the legions of useless cops and “federal law enforcement” permanent sinecures. That fewer than half the Nation’s rapes and murders are ever solved and criminals punished is a feature, not a bug. And we have a word for this too (thanks Sam Francis!): Anarcho-Tyranny

    By keeping us (particularly women) permanently frightened of rape by imaginary rapists while protecting the real rapists, we are more frightened of what might happen without Big Brother than we are of Big Brother (or his negro little “brothers”) himself. It is crimethink to ask why the majority of heinous crimes aren’t solved while cops bugger one another on duty, eat donuts, and punish us for evils like driving too fast or watering our lawns on the wrong days. It’s crimethink to ask who is really doing the raping and murdering. All of it is by design comrade. Nobody ever tries to work himself out of a paycheck. Crime does pay, but mostly to the useless worms paid to prevent it.

    On a related note, Holocaust denial, whether factually sound or not, does more harm than good to opponents of Hebrew Supremacy. I think a winning message is “Nothing that the Nazis did, or could have done, justifies policies leading towards the eventually disappearence of Germans as a distinct ethnic group. It goes without saying, then, that it is unacceptable for similar policies to be applied to related ethnic groups who actively fought against Nazi Germany or resisted German occupation. Punishing the Germans for their fathers’ crimes is wrong. Punishing Anglos for the crimes of the Germans’ fathers is far worse.”

    So, property crime down a bit, but robbery up 12% in two years, eh. Robbery is way more likely to result in assaults and murders, and other opportunistic crimes against persons like say rape as the perpetrator and the victim are face to face, and the perpetrator is going to be threatening to use violence to enforce compliance, common means of doing so being by flourishing a blunt instrument, and edged weapon, or perhaps a firearm. Given that understanding, such a sharp increase in robbery is a really worrying thing, no?

    But Corvinus instead gaslights the froggies, telling them that, hey, you must be mistaken about the temperature of the water in the pot in which you sit, namely your community. Anyway, what are the chances that a face to face encounter with a thug will happen to you, or that the situation will escalate so that you or someone you care about will be injured, raped, or killed? It’s only a 12% increase in the chances over a two year period, so feel no fret, mon.

    But the thought might occur that perhaps property crime doesn’t pay nearly so well as robbery, and that the two diverging trends are at root connected? Nah, barely credible, amiright?

    ‘Cuz the media would never gaslight us by downplaying the significance of a rising threat perception by the people who actually live in the community and deal with the on the ground reality of hostile, unassimilating aliens in their midst that, oh I don’t know, might inform their sense of threat?

    A long-term solution to your deck problems short of tearing it out entirely (I wouldn’t say final but just because nothing last forever) is to replace the decking with Trex or similar plastic lumber. Maybe this doesn’t have the warmth and beauty of real wood but it won’t rot or give you splinters or require restaining.

    If your deck is so low to the ground that you can replace it with pavers, they why did you build a deck in the 1st place? Since it’s done already, one thought would be to shrink the size of the deck and turn part of it into full width (or at least wide) steps leading down to a patio. “Multi-level” is very in. You could salvage the less rotten decking material and use that as a source of future matching pieces for the remaining part.

    The US studies conflate skilled migrants with an estimate of the illegal immigrant population – skilled migrants who pass stringent testing for visas have a lower rate than the US average, while illegal immigrants have a higher rate – aggregating the two while undercounting illegal immigrants makes the “immigrant” category look below the US average.

    Australia’s skilled migration is relatively competently handled – see Anatoly Karlin’s breakdown of OECD PISA data showing that immigrants in the education system are not worse off than the Australian born students. “Not Sending Their Best”: World Map of IQ Drop Due to Immigration”

    The main problem Australia has with immigrant crime is humanitarian intake (refugees). Australian data comes from the Australian Bureau of Statistics study Prisoners in Australia, 2017 – prisoner incarceration rate varies massively by country of origin – many Asian countries with a lot of skilled immigrants (eg India) have less than half the average incarceration rate, while Vietnam and middle eastern refugee born countries are higher (Afghanistan) and the Sudan born refugees have ~6x the non-indigenous incarceration rate. The Australian indigenous incarceration rate is about 15x the non-indigenous average

    “Acts intended to cause injury was the most common offence for prisoners born in New Zealand and Sudan, representing 24% and 38% of these populations respectively.
    Illicit drug offences was the most common offence for prisoners born in Hong Kong (80%), Vietnam (72%), China (63%) and Malaysia (62%).”

    I don’t give a damn if Mueller was born in 1944, that’s close enough for me to call that no good bastard a baby boomer.

    Making Boomerhood central to determining who makes it on your enemies list seems unhelpful. Two reasons:

    1) The policies Boomers push were planned out and put in motion by the generations preceding them, so their guiding ideology has deeper roots than one might think.

    2) The worst 68ers around now are in their teens and twenties. They’re the ones most violently enforcing the worldview of the stereotypical leftie Boomer. Second worst are the little Gen X epigones who managed to find employment under some Boomer mentor. Third worst are the actual Boomers themselves.

    The only politically active generation that still comes across as thoughtful and fair-minded are the Silent Generation and they’re fading away. They were lucky enough to become adult humans before the television era. Their sense of the society and politics is based on two-way dialogue and bargaining rather than just sitting in front of the Megaphone.

  140. @Alec Leamas

    Alec,

    Corvinus is perfectly willing to advance whatever leftist-skewed reports and studies as The Gospel Truth, is impervious to the idea that their origins in the fever swamp of Cultural Marxism might limit our desire to attribute unquestioned validity to these ideologically-massaged pronouncements, and is constantly handing out assignments for everyone who responds skeptically to this codswallow to come up with contrary accounts (not that he would accept them were they to be produced). His posting strategy is like being hit with a string of SLAAP suits, suits often based on nothing but the desire to wear one down, and almost always with little to no basis in fact. That’s how he rolls. As with his link to the “Scientific” American article, just look at the picture at its head with the crowd’s signage basically stating the conclusions that will be reached in the article; i.e., nobody is illegal, immigrants without exception welcome, welcome, welcome. It is from the new, Trotskyite recension of SA, dating from 2017 if there is any doubt, and thoroughly imbued with TDS, so what would one expect, I mean seriously? Feh.

    But further to your point, in self-isolated, willfully unassimilating populations, the community standard is “snitches get stiches”, so even if there were some in those populations of illegal aliens who would be happy to see the criminals in their communities arrested and prosecuted, they fear the immediate danger of retaliation. This makes it extremely difficult for police and prosecutors to build cases. I see this all of the time in my nearest city, Philadelphia, where intimidation serves to squelch law enforcement efforts to protect not only the surrounding community, but also those within the illegal immigrant community.

    But the obvious conclusion, that if a whole community is comprised of people whose very first act in this country is to break the laws concerning immigration, that little better can be expected downstream regardless (or perhaps, because) of the puling and whining of their SJW advocates. You want to go head on at criminality? You uproot criminogenic environments. But no, the special pleading and hand wringing starts with the SJWs and never, ever stops.

    It’s not just those two. There is some kind of national campaign going on where they are publishing these editorials in newspapers all across the country on the same day. It’s more and more obvious that the mainstream press is the propaganda arm of the “Resistance”.

    Of course this suits their political biases but I think it also is connected to changing economics. We see this also on TV also with the late night TV shows and with retailers. Once upon a time TV networks and newspapers were like department stores that catered to everyone, especially the vast middle class that was more or less evenly divided between the parties. And this was a profitable business model. Paley and Ochs and Graham might have been liberal Democrats but they were not going to put politics ahead of the business model that made them wealthy.

    But the mass market has been shattered by the internet and by the political and economic stratification of our society. So being everything to everyone means being nothing to anyone (see Sears). The only path forward that they can see is to find a profitable niche and a partisan niche is good when you no longer have a profit making business model. People have strong political loyalties that they are willing to back with contributions (some newspapers now solicit donations so Steve was ahead of the times as usual). The surviving daily newspaper in Philadelphia (and other cities) has been reorganized as a non-profit foundation. Getting 1 giant donation from a really rich guy who agrees with your politics is even better than having to beg for individual contributions. Better to jump onto a much smaller lifeboat than to go down with the ship.

    The research, as well as the personal experiences of those living in those clearly states otherwise.

    “All of this aside, the academy and the government(s) simply lack credibility to view the issue straight on…”

    And now you are doubling down, SJW-style. You ASSUME these institutions lack credibility, thus any conclusions to the contrary of your narrative is dismissed. Instead, you must take an honest, forthright look into the data and challenge it with counter evidence. Mere hand waving makes you look foolish. And it is interesting that when the Alt Right cites specific research, it ought to be taken as the gospel.

    “I cited the fact that there are recalcitrant elements of the government itself dead set against any attempt at an official tally of resident illegal aliens or to identify criminal perpetrators as illegal aliens when they are, in fact, illegal aliens.”

    Again, that is red herring. Focus on the results of the studies.

    “Are you proposing that Los Angeles County is doing its due diligence in keeping track of which of its perpetrators are illegal aliens?”

    That would be a strawman on your part. But, since I’m a good sport, I will respond. I am of the notion that urban politicians, as well as business owners, neglect to adhere to the law. Which, and I have made this known time and time again, means those responsible should be prosecuted according to our statutes currently on the books.

    Additionally, your links illegal aliens with all other immigrants going back to the 1970s in a purposeful attempt to mask rates of illegal alien crime – all so that after Mr. Trump speaks of the scourge and lawlessness of illegal entries and overstays you can say “Uh, studies show that immigrants are more law abiding, hurrdeedur!”

    Finally, I’ll dig into your derivatives of “studies” when your side takes a sober look at the fact that the studies reveal that blacks aren’t disproportionately killed by police, and admit that “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” is predicated on a bald lie.

Doors were battered in, stragglers arrested, and candlelighted rooms forced to disgorge unbelievable throngs of mixed foreigners in figured robes, mitres, and other inexplicable devices. Much was lost in the melee, for objects were thrown hastily down unexpected shafts, and betraying odours deadened by the sudden kindling of pungent incense.

    Note how the various Sanctuary City policies are worded – they affirmatively forbid municipal law enforcement and corrections personnel from sharing information with the Federal Government on pain of employee discipline.

Because you know what, it’s ok that working white Aussies of child bearing age can only afford one child, due to Chad boomers getting millions of Super taxed at 0-15%, importing home buyers to make themselves feel rich on paper. Those unborn whites are not the same as deaths, goy. WHAT’S IMPORTANT IS THAT NOT EVEN THE MOST STUPID WHITE AUSTRALIAN DIES FOR BEING STUPID. And that no potential boomer-like retirees get cancer from asbestos after they have had their children. While there are some boomers still in the workforce, the younger generation could conceivably be like boomers some day, so we must protect them at all costs.

    In a nutshell, Australian government policy boils down to:
    -trying to prevent old, stupid and generally careless people from dying
    -making the boomer cohort feel good about themselves for how smart and hard working they were for buying their houses for twice annual income
    -preventing white Aussies from breeding, except for the most stupid, who should be paid to do nothing but breed more stupid people
    -try to make Einsteins out of stupid feral idiots and the imported turd worlders, and institute royal commissions into why there are no good tertiary turd polishing machines out there
    -blame police chiefs for the results of the immigration policy
    -ensuring that most of our population comes from overpopulated, corrupt, third world s(*#holes.

    … it would be better if the expected pattern in UMC circles was undergraduate degree, then baby, then grad school/work. This would put age at 1st birth in the window of 22 to 25, which is a lot healthier and closer to what nature intended than 30+. I don’t know how we get there though.

    Thanks Jack–for link and topic. This is a hugely important “conversation”. Ridiculously delayed marriage and child bearing of our “educated” classes is heading us toward a dysgenic disaster.

    Personally i’d be happy just to see the graph shift to the middle between those two (non-college and college) bumps in the 2016 graph–with lots of first babies coming in the mid/late 20s. With proper direction a woman should by then have enough “know thyself” under her belt to determine the sort of guy she wants and land him while she still has her looks and is offering “young and ripe” sex appeal in return. And a first baby for a college grad at 26 or 27 still gives her time to have a relatively big family if so motivated, which is what we need to turn around dysgenic fertility.

    As for fixes:

    #1 is obvious — end immigration.
    Stop jacking up the pressure on jobs, housing, schools, traffic … Steve’s affordable family formation. Don’t do that and everything else is pointless. We’re headed toward being an “Asian” nation in terms of crowding but made up of whites, latins, blacks.

    #2 change the narrative.
    And not just correcting the messaging around “the meaning of life”, “what’s important”, “what makes women happy”. Also need to restablish the notion that people belong to a nation and civilization. That they are part of something bigger–and that something is wonderful. That by building a family they are extending Western civilization–the greatest civilization in human history.
    (Sorry Chinese, Indians … that’s just the way it is.)

    This is probably the toughest job of all. We need to give Hollyweird the bums’ rush and build a new one. New media. New academia. This is a much bigger job that even 1945 in Germany. It’s not just physical rubble but intellectual/cultural rubble we must cart off, dump and rebuild.

    Those two essentially fix the problem. But i think there are some useful technocratic steps as well.

    #3 improve and shortern “education”
    Make residential college optional/irrelevant. On-line instruction. Exams where kids can show they can read, write, reason, do algebra, read and interpret graphs, do basic stats, demonstrate basic historical and cultural knowledge and demonstrate knowledge of particular degreed disciplines.

    Folks pursuing advanced technical education who really need to be in the lab, or are really going to pursue ivory tower careers can go on to “university”.

    There are so many “wins” here it’s ridiculous:
    – kids get through it faster and on to adult life
    – kids can have a real “goal” worth pursuing during their high school years; teenage wheel spinning can be reigned in
    – end/mitigate the “good school” rat race
    – end the Asian SAT cramming nonsense
    – better teaching; (the Teaching Company and like courses are better than typical college instruction)
    – end/mitigate the leftist indoctrination nonsense; (The fact based nature of most of what’s asked significantly reduces their lattitude and when employers can actually see what “learning” occurred the value of the A in greivance history 301 is much reduced. In fact, kids who take the grievance studies 301 exam might find employers are much *less* interested in them.)
    – dramatically lower the cultural salience of Harvard and the like
    – put a lot of leftist–useless eater–academics out to pasture and make them get useful jobs as barristas or stocking shelves at Walmart, etc.
    and
    – end of mammoth “send kids to college” expense, greatly reduces parental concern about affording a child or another child; should immediately boost college educated couples fertility

    #4 … hmm … ok, so excited about #3 that i forgot my #4.

    Anyway this is a fixable problem, but the gist of what it requires is a nation that self-confidently loves itself and ergo cares about reproducing itself. If you don’t have that no amount of technocratic tweaking is going to fix it.

    How did they measure “desireability”? That’s not consistent with prior research. It would stand to reason that men would be most attracted to women around the age where birth complications decline. Otherwise, men would have a tendency to kill off their mates by impregnating them before their bodies are ready for childbirth.

    But Sudanese youths were vastly over-represented in the 2015 data, responsible for 7.44 per cent of home invasions, 5.65 per cent of car thefts and 13.9 per cent of aggravated robberies, despite Sudanese-born citizens making up about 0.11 per cent of Victoria’s population.

    The role of political leadership is to unite diverse communities, ensure vulnerable people are given the tools they need to thrive and to dismantle unhelpful stereotypes and prejudice – not to amplify them,” Cr Pavlidis said.

    Yeah, that struck me too. The sheer cloying stupidity of these people is beyond belief.

    However it is said the actual goal of a political leader is to insure the survival and improve the prospects of their clan/tribe/nation.

    Essentially that means:
    – Defense/warfare — protect from invasion or if necessary invade someone else
    – Adjudicate internal disputes — fair settlement to internal disputes so they don’t spiral up into trouble, division, civil war; i.e. rule-of-law

    Then after those basics, leaders in a civilized society can be doing provision of public goods–roads, schools, sewers so life is better and the nation more successful and powerful.

    Nowhere has the charter ever been such a teacly pablum as the above.

    Rosie you’ve pushed this “teenagers bodies aren’t ready” nonsense before, but the age effect from 18 into the mid-20s is basically non-existent. Even the link you tossed up last time showed that the “teenage pregnancy” effect was absolutely miniscule–an once of birthweight. (I was surprised how minimal it was. There was a big effect–several onces–only with those who had a 2nd teen pregnancy which is accounted for by the huge selection effect that those are girls who are really incompetent clueless bozos.)

    Women in their late teens are perfectly ready for pregnancy–if they have the requisite weight, nutrition, etc. Under Malthusian pressure this often hasn’t been the case in the past, but when the nutrition is there–they have babies just fine. (My wife’s mom had her first kid at 19. It wasn’t at all rare. Heck look at that graph in Jack’s NYT article–even back in the dark ages of 1980 … not that rare!)

    Even by your own argument: Let’s say we agree that a woman’s peak fertility physically is sometime in her early mid-20s–say 24. Does that mean she is most desirable at 24? Not really. Not if you’re thinking long term, as in marriage. You’d want to have her *before* her peak fertility and be impregnating her all through her period of peak fertility. Now for the typical hit-and-run black guy as in the disgusting cover pic on your article–sure. Ok, makes sense. Knock that bitch up tonight and skedaddle. But for build-a-family white guys, your biology argument–which i basically agree with–would suggest attraction to women right as they *enter* their best years of fertility which are something like 19-29.

    It’s not just those two. There is some kind of national campaign going on where they are publishing these editorials in newspapers all across the country on the same day.

    My understanding is that it was, if not coordinated, at least partially organized by the Boston Globe. 300+ newspapers (including such opinion leaders as the Pagosa Springs (Colorado) Sun, circulation about 4,000) ran a similar editorial today.

    The bloviating self-importance of the “press” has ceased being amusing. For most of newspaper history, newspapers were aligned with one political faction or the other. Nothing has changed, but somewhere in the 20th century – maybe a function of having only 3 TV stations or perhaps a relatively homogenous population – the mainstream media adopted this ridiculous stance that they are impartial oracles of wisdom with motives beyond question.

    There’s nothing wrong with being an arm of the democratic party (CNN) or a mouthpiece for a greedy, self-interested billionaire (Bezos Post) but enough with the lying and pretending they’re something else.

    I don’t doubt that women in their late teens are by and large physically ready for pregnancy, but they are not emotionally or socially ready for motherhood. The fact that your Wife’s mom had her first kid at 19 doesn’t mean sh!t. Can’t boys sire children at twelve?

    Even by your own argument: Let’s say we agree that a woman’s peak fertility physically is sometime in her early mid-20s–say 24. Does that mean she is most desirable at 24?

    Actually yes, that would stand to reason. If you are a prehistoric male at high risk of early death in battle with game or human rivals, your best bet is to choose a partner at peak fertility, and under no circumstances would it be adaptive to impregnate teenagers when they are still at an elevated risk of birth complications. That would be seriously damaging to group fitness.

    FWIW, I’m not just assuming that women in their thirties are most attractive. I produced a study that actually so indicates. So I don’t know what you’re getting all pissy with me about. I was merely inquiring about Jack’s source so I could take a closer look at the data.

    Africans have a psychological advantage in a confrontation in that they don’t concern themselves with the consequences of violence. The prospect of going to jail doesn’t seem to worry them. They also often don’t maintain proportionality in their response–in a situation where an angry verbal response or even a small shove might be appropriate, they’ll deliver a deathblow or a fatal stab or gunshot wound.

At that time, the fact that racism and provability had been used to shut people up was frequently referenced.

    From an interview with Vice Magazine:

    After so many years of being away from filmmaking, how did you get the opportunity to make Surveillance?

    Such a long story. The quick version is that I had been producing short films and doing a lot of writing and had a great writer’s group with a bunch of friends and I was looking to get back to doing stuff. One of the guys in my group asked me to read this script he’d written, so I asked him, “Do you want me to read this as a friend or as a writer?” He said “Both.” It was a script about witches and it had some interesting ideas in it, but I had some notes, which pissed him off a little bit. I got the response, “So what would you fucking do with it?” So I said, “Well, I’d do this” and so I wrote Surveillance. People really liked the script but I wasn’t getting anywhere with it. Then one night my father called me and said “You’re the sickest bitch I know! You can’t end it this way.” And I said “Sure I can.” But it was at his beseeching that I wrote an alternate ending, which I shot but knew I would never keep in the film. He called a few months later and asked me “So what the hell is going on with your movie?” I said, “Zilch. I don’t know if it’s because it’s been 15 years or the subject matter or what, but people are scared.” And he said, “Alright, well, you’ll probably say ‘No’ to this, but what do you think would happen if I put my name on as executive producer?” And I said, “No fucking way. You don’t think I get enough shit for being your daughter in the first place?” But he said, “I really like this movie and I want to see it get made. We’ll do an experiment. We’ll put my name on the cover as an executive producer and we’ll just see what happens.” Within 24 hours, I had offers. It was the most disgusting but amazing thing ever. It’s ridiculous how suddenly legitimizing a name like that can be. So I went and made the film, went back and showed it to him, asked if I could use a song, he said “Yes,” and thus was born Surveillance.

Although, men and women generally make their own determination as to what they personally believe is “desirable”.

    Unfortunately this also means that Australian leftie crazies pursue the latest woke causes with the same fanatical zeal as their US counterparts. You usually don’t see quite the same blinkered intensity in British SJWs, for example; they often retain a smirky, somewhat self-aware sense of humor (humour, I guess) that’s been burned right out of their colonial heirs.

    Ok so I took a look at the study. I read up till the Materials and Methods section. (Too much math after that. Is there anything noteworthy in there, res?)

    The problem I have with the claims about age at peak attractiveness is that it doesn’t take account of the number of dating app users within striking distance if prospects at different ages. There are fewer women within striking distance of a 25 year old man than there are within striking distance of a 40 year old man. That doesn’t mean 40 year old men are more attractive than 25 up year old men in the sense that men age like wine. IOW, I assume that youth, even for men, is more desireable than age, all else being equal, especially to young women.

    Something similar is probably happening with women. As we get older, there are fewer men in our target age groups. That doesn’t mean we’re less attractive at 22 than we were at 18. Interestingly, the most popular educational level for women was bachelors degree, controlling for age. Presumably, a woman does no harm to her marketability by waiting till her early twenties to find a mate so long as she is investing in herself as a companion during that time. This is a very welcome finding. Daniel Defoe would be proud.

    There were some other interesting tidbits, though, like this

    The distributions about this modal value, however, are noticeably skewed to the right, meaning that a majority of both sexes tend to contact partners who are more desirable than themselves on average—and hardly any users contact partners who are significantly less desirable. The curves are re- markably consistent across all four cities, with men and women on av- erage sending messages to potential partners who are 26 and 23% further up the rankings than themselves, respectively.

    And this…

    The most common (modal) behavior for both men and women is to contact members of the opposite sex who on average have roughly the same ranking as themselves, suggesting that people are relatively good judges of their own place in the desirability hierarchy.

    They have a somewhat complex (and I think reasonable) measure of desirability – the number of times you are contacted by people who are themselves sought after by people of the opposite sex.

    “The most popular individual in our four cities, a 30-year-old woman living in New York,
    received 1504 messages during the period of observation, equivalent to
    one message every 30 min, day and night, for the entire month.”

    {And men wonder why women don’t respond to their messages}

    But that person is not necessarily the most desirable if she is contacted mostly by losers whom other women are not interested in.

People like to think that they have free will and are making their own individual decisions, but isn’t it funny that they all make the same decision during any given time period?

    Australia is even more urbanized than the US. It’s like Canada in that the country is vast but most of the (small) 25M population (2/3 of the California population) clings to a thin strip – in Canada it’s the US border and in Australia it’s certain parts of the coasts. 86% of the population lives in urban areas so ideologically they behave like urbanites. The closest analogy would be if the US consisted only of the part that is west of 110 degrees W – you’d have large liberal population along the coast and an interior that is conservative but almost completely empty. People who live on sheep stations may be as you describe but there is one sheep station every 50 miles. Australia has no large interior cities – no Las Vegas or Phoenix. The interior is like the desert of Nevada if Nevada was 2,000 miles across.

    Note that this is a study of online dating and not marriage so the incentives are somewhat different.

    The automatic assumption is that people who do online dating mirror the general population. In other words, the characters in the movie “You’ve Got Mail” are held to be representative of the kind of people who do it. In reality, the population sets may be very different.

    If Australian politics is like ours, I doubt they worry about elections.

    Voting is compulsory in Australia.
    Yeah, the Ethnics don’t worry much about Elections. They can’t read, write, or speak English anyway.
    They just apply for a Postal Vote, and let the local Warlord fill it out and send it in.

    2 lies for the price of one!
    Many , if not most of these overgrown ”youths” may have been born in Australia, since the Howard Government started importing the Sudanese as Refugees in 1996.

    Our Fake Government laps up the praise for stopping a few thousand Boaties every year, while opening the floodgates to Africa and Asia.

    Tongans and Samoans just hop on a plane from New Zealand, walk through the door, and stay here forever, not infrequently in one of our hellish Maximum Security Prisons following a trademark fatal assault.
    From the odd conversation, I glean that the Tongan/Samoans are well aware that YT’s time at the top in Australia is drawing to a close.

    Australia was populated by free English settlers, very few can claim descent from a convict.
    The Irish are big self promoters here, though.
    If there’s whingeing, whining, or bitching happening Down Under, there’ll be the venal Irish doing it.

    The guns handover was styled the Guns Buyback. In most States everything bar handguns could be bought off the self without a licence.
    Plenty of smarties handed in junk they didn’t want, and got paid top dollar, while keeping the guns they did want.
    Of course, their Names & Addresses must be in a database somewhere, so one day they, or whoever lives at that address now, will get a visit from Mr. Plod, seeking the rest of their weapons.

    What nonsense. You could just read the contemporary writings on the warlike Scottish even as close to the 1800s. Belligerent societies historically had life so cheap that the idea of a few percentage death in childbirth is laughable – infant mortality of fifty percent was common, and much of it was due to malnutrition. Death was just common: by childbirth, by hunger, by violence. In my own family tree are hordes of fourteen or sixteen years old brides, and deaths before seven..of children who were christianed with names. Many infants died before that.

    And damn if my people did not become fearsome for it. Witness the legend of the Black Watch.

    Even if you get rid of the commissars, you will still be dealing with the consequences of their madness. You can’t just make millions of Africans disappear.

    Or maybe you can.

    Post-colonialism ethnically cleansed whites from various third world countries and everybody (IYKWIM) cheered. The same will ‘just happen’ to South Africa and there will be more cheering.

    After WW2, the allies forced ten million or so ethnic Germans permanently away from their former homes and countries. We hardly even remember that today and certainly don’t criticize it.

    What makes you think it was “only” a few percentage? You can’t extrapolate from modern times with advanced life-saving maternal care into the past.

    Do you know why there is a “junior” department at Macy’s? Teenagers don’t have the same curves grown women have, because they’re not fully developed yet, and that’s despite more ample nutrition.

    You link to the New York Times, a Fake News site according to the Alt Right and Donald Trump? LOL.

    Anyways, you do realize that the headline is misleading…and the lede is buried. The researchers had focused on a host of factors for desirability, including age, education, physical attractiveness, and attitudes. ONE result was that older men desire younger women. But what they found was that “we present a network measure of desirability in dating that is based on mate-seeking behavior rather than subjective personal qualities such as attractiveness. We find that, while some mate seekers do pursue partners of similar average desirability to themselves, the vastmajority of the online dating population we study tend to reach up the hierarchy toward more desirable partners. At the same time, this aspirational mate pursuit is calibrated to one’s own desirability: On average, people pursue partners who are roughly 25% more desirable than they themselves are.”

  271. Corvinus says:
    @Alec Leamas (hard at work)

    “There are no books. The books are forbidden to be accurately kept. The truth is ruthlessly repressed.”

    Yes, there are books of records kept by law enforcement on this matter. The researchers used this material and other data. If you believe that communities are deliberately under- or over-reporting, then you have to prove it, rather than assume it.

  272. A modest proposal: Deal with African gang crime, and people will stop African gang talk.

    @Anonymous

    “Yeah, what do PC-addled institutions say?”

    No, what does law enforcement have to say? They have a crime issue with certain segment of a larger group of newcomers. Is it or is it not gangs? That’s a matter of perspective, as the details. Interestingly enough, the statistics also show that a Victorian is more than 25 times more likely to be seriously assaulted by someone born in Australia or New Zealand than someone born in Sudan or Kenya. Furthermore, it almost five times more likely for a victim of aggravated burglary to be committed by an Australian or New Zealand-born offender, than one born in Sudan or Kenya.

    “But Sudanese youths were vastly over-represented in the 2015 data, responsible for 7.44 per cent of home invasions, 5.65 per cent of car thefts and 13.9 per cent of aggravated robberies, despite Sudanese-born citizens making up about 0.11 per cent of Victoria’s population.”

    People born in Sudan make up just 0.1 per cent of Victoria’s total population (roughly 6000). About 50% of that population is under the age of 25, which is being compared to 33% of the general Australian population. So it is not a like to like comparison. Out of 1800 offenders between the ages of 10-18 for serious assault from 2016-2017, only 54 were Sudanese. Out of 1900 offenders between the ages of 10-18 for non-aggravated burglary from 2016-2017, only 38 were Sudanese. Overall, youth crime has fallen in Victoria within the past decade.

    So the real numbers are telling.

    “#1 is obvious — end immigration.”

    Virtually impossible given our political climate. Significantly limiting it is an easier sell.

    “We’re headed toward being an “Asian” nation in terms of crowding but made up of whites, latins, blacks.”

    Well, the WASPs in the 1850′s said we were headed toward a “non-WASP” nation. How did that turn out?

    “#2 change the narrative.”

    By brainwashing the masses? Thanks, but no thanks. People can make their own decisions.

    ” That by building a family they are extending Western civilization–the greatest civilization in human history.”

    That’s more or less a personal opinion, friend.

    “It’s not just physical rubble but intellectual/cultural rubble we must cart off, dump and rebuild.”

    See, you have these ideas, and then you have over the top ways of accomplishing them. It’s noble to think this way, but you are being entirely impractical. “When you wish upon a star…”

    “Anyway this is a fixable problem, but the gist of what it requires is a nation that self-confidently loves itself and ergo cares about reproducing itself.”

    Actually, Americans are self-confident lot, they love themselves, and they care about having children. Maybe just not in the ways that you demand.

    Tiny Duck, your editorial is a bit confusing:

    Third, you don’t LOOK at mayonnaise, TD, you eat it on samiches. Try it. It’s good.

    Finally, I commend you for your taste in music. “Cry Me A River” was a fine Julie London song.
    You remember Julie London, don’t you, TD? She was white and sang like a sultry angel.

Or do I just take cover and say it’s “problematic”?
