From the NY Daily News:

Mackenzie Bezos changes name, donates $1.7 billion to groups promoting racial and gender equity, public health, economic parity
By THERESA BRAINE
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |
JUL 28, 2020 AT 9:51 PM

MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Amazon titan Jeff Bezos, has ditched her married name and is giving away big money.

The Amazon founder’s ex has donated $1.7 billion so far, she said Tuesday in a Medium post detailing why, and where, her money had gone — mainly to groups promoting racial and gender equity, public health, education and economic parity.

“Like many, I watched the first half of 2020 with a mixture of heartbreak and horror,” Scott wrote. “Life will never stop finding fresh ways to expose inequities in our systems; or waking us up to the fact that a civilization this imbalanced is not only unjust, but also unstable.”

Her announcement was designed to draw attention to a host of causes in “nine areas of need,” she wrote, including racial equity ($586.7 million), LGBTQ+ equity ($46 million), gender equity ($133 million), public health ($128.3 million), global development ($130 million) and climate change ($125 million).

Audacious Epigone graphs a huge new poll for the net support for Black Lives Matter among whites

That is a huge gender gap.

Do you think Biden’s Brain Trust has any kind of a plan for how to bottle back up the lunacy the Democrats have helped unleash over the last 7 years? I sure hope they do.

But with all the money flowing in to Peacefulness Intensification pressure groups from the likes of the ex-Mrs. Bezos, what exactly could President Biden do to mitigate the mania?

    At least , it doesn't belong to Mr. Mackenzie anymore. If he makes a habit of marrying without a prenup...

  2. Did she mention that Amazon made out like bandits during the lockdown? Is that why she supported it?

  3. Obviously a race between Mackenzie and Laurene Jobs to see who can be the ditzier SJW.

    Mackenzie has more money, but LJ dated a younger black guy in Adrian Fenty, and her sponsorship of The Atlantic has a longer reach, so I’d say she’s ahead on Pokemon points,

    Laurene Powell Jobs has Net worth $16.97 billion USD (sez internet) so this Menlo Park loon cannot do as much damage as MacKenzie Scott Bezos who has a 36 billion dollar rating.

    Police should use live rounds to put down riots. And prosecute billionaires for financing terrorism using the RICO Act. Let orange be the new black for Mrs. Bezos.

    Sadly, I struggle mightily (and futilely) with the women in my life over the 'proportionality' thing. These are highly-educated (and highly-paid) professionals. Sometimes I wonder how they keep their 'high-powered' jobs. Is there simply no math in most fields?

    Against my better judgement (hope forever triumphing over experience) I go over and over with them the idea that police activity w/r/t a particular group is more naturally a function of that group's level of criminal activity rather than of its general population cohort.

    Analogies seem to work best, so I try some of them. They generally get a hazy notion but the next time I talk to them, they've imbibed a ton more MSM propaganda and are ready to Defund again. And enslave wypipos if necessary. The hazy notion strikes them as 'wrong' even if it's 'logical'. It seems to be how certain brains work.

    And of course this is why mass-media entertainment/propaganda is so effective. It doesn't work on anything like the cold, hard level of rationality. It's forever an appeal to emotion, and it's very effective.

    Nah. It's moral money laundering - she and her ex created a company that dodges taxes while paying their workers so little the taxpayer has to step in to feed them. They then put a tiny fraction into charities (or "charities"). And all those charities - coincidentally! - play into the divide and conquer that stops the working/middle classes from uniting against literal oligarchs.

    The super rich aren't so stupid as to djnate money that goes against their interests.

    Even when i was in college, no one ever said anything--no one--about queers marrying each other. In the '90s Clinton signed legislation to outlaw it. In 2015, it turned out that homosexual marriage was incorporated into the Constitution in 1868. Then it turned out that a critical issue of our age was mentally ill boys' "right" to use the girls' locker room.

    The race bubble was already giant by "Trayvon!". The Michael Brown thing was huge--couldn't get more ridiculous. I thought with the Nick Sandmann thing last year, we had to be at peak white hate. And here we are in 2020 ... 10X more crazy.

    She may also figure it will result in calls for her ex-husband to donate more money than that. As Globalist as he may be, that'd be such a waste that it would have to hurt for him to do. Yet, they'll say, "come on, Jeff, do your part for D.I.E. You're raking in the bucks. I mean your wife gave to the cause, and she's a poor old lady living on a FIXED INCOME!"

    .

    PS: I got a great solution for Jeff in case the Lyin' Press gets all over him to be charitable here: Pssst, Jeff, tell them that you'll be glad to donate, and you'll give everything you get out of the auctioning-off of the the Washington Post assets.

    We literally have tens of millions of women–white women–who care more about being on side with Oprah, or Katie or the gals on the View (and whoever younger women pay attention to), then they do about what they inherited from their ancestors or the future of their own children.

  35. Women support BLM more than men, but not to that extent. A lot of them are just telling the pollsters what they want to hear. Most middle class white women are raised with the belief that being “nice” is the ultimate virtue, and that it is acceptable to be aggressive in order to ensure everything and everyone are “nice.” The worst thing ever is to not be considered nice. To say you don’t support BLM today opens one up to total social rejection.

    If you want women to stop being swept into leftist causes you should support raising girls as self-assured tomboys. Do a poll of women who have shot or own guns and then see how many of them support BLM. Encouraging women to be more traditionalist (in the goofy way most internet right-wingers conceive of the term) isn’t going to improve women’s common sense or survival instincts.

    I'm pretty good at math, but I had a girlfriend who blew me away in math ability, and this was despite her majoring in English for reasons I never understood. But she still took some math classes in college and solved math problems for fun in her free time.

    Yet for all her math talents, I don't think she could apply math to anything in the real world to save her life. She also couldn't find Britain on a map. She was like one of those pure math autists you hear about except she was well-socialized and stereotypically female in every other regard, right down to reading People Magazine and owning a few dozen pairs of shoes.

    She ended up going into some sort of bureaucratic corporate work that utilized about 1% of her math ability, and I think she felt pretty good about it. I guess to her, being good at math was like being good at crossword puzzles, and the idea of using it for profit or to better understand reality was just boring nonsense.

    TikTok is truly a scourge. I see teens spending hours on it, making dumb dance moves for the most part. They also broadcast pranks, some potentially dangerous. It’s certainly lowering IQs and inhibitions. I think it’s also responsible for the recent revival of crop tops. Clothing was starting to get more modest in the 2010s (due to hipster influence) versus the flashy 2000s, but that’s reversed in the past 2-3 years. Because all the teens who the clothing companies cater to want to look good in their TikTok videos.

    Gen X parents should be ashamed of their kids for using it. Do they not warn teens about pedos the way Boomer parents did to us millennials? Facebook and even Instagram/Snapchat are way less insidious than TikTok.

    Over the Summer I've been reading a few books by George Gissing, the Victorian-era British novelist. The issue of female emancipation and suffrage is a theme often in the background, delicately conveyed, and I was surprised when one a character stated, essentially, that women are too involved in reading silly novels to get involved in politics, because women believe things with passion, and the novels put all manner of silly thoughts in their heads, and novels aren't reality.

    These books were written 140 years ago. The issue isn't 24/7 TV or smart phones.

    ______

    Gissing's better books are highly recommended light reading and are free for download. Orwell recommended New Grub Street, The Odd Women, and Demos.

    Agree. And i've written several comments on the needed pro-family tax policies being critical to any sort of nationalist political program. (As has Lot.) Stopping immigration is #1 and completely dwarfs any other policy issue, but a pro-family, pro-natalist policy is right up there are the top of the 2nd tier. Basically, productive married couple having and raising children should not be paying any taxes--they are doing their job, by having and raising children.

    You seem deeply confused about this, but believe it or not your "men of Unz" are not actually running shit (politically).

    No all the "men of Unz" you complain about are doing is "noticing" problems--including the very real women problem.

    In contrast, what you continually demonstrate by your reaction to this, is Sailer's observation about women taking everything personally. Sailer posted the data from AE, that shows there is in fact a "woman problem". But to you it is "facts man" noticing it, analyzing it, complaining about it that's the problem. Not ... the actual women who sell out their children's future for feelz. No, somehow it's alt-right guys noticing that that's the problem. Logic.

    I basically agree with your rantings about fundie Christianity. There seems to be a deep crisis in Christianity--that has spread well beyond mainline Protestantism's rainbow hued meltdown--with leaders unable to even make the simple observation that there's nothing about Christianity that requires national or racial suicide. Charity is required. But that doesn't require integration, much less immigration or abandoning one's cultural norms.

    However ... that doesn't mean the Duggars have done nothing. "The future belongs to the people who show up for it". Through sheer numbers--even if they lose a few to race mixing--you can bet that Duggar descendant white wombs will be receiving seed from white penises for hundreds of years to come. Probably quite a bit more such wombs, and penises, with more explicitly pro-white views in the attached brains than will descend from typical explicitly pro-white couples.

    In addition to the a half century of feminism, and Amendment XIX to force States to allow women to vote a full century ago, I put the some of the blame on 24/7 TV and now the smart phones.

    Over the Summer I’ve been reading a few books by George Gissing, the Victorian-era British novelist. The issue of female emancipation and suffrage is a theme often in the background, delicately conveyed, and I was surprised when one a character stated, essentially, that women are too involved in reading silly novels to get involved in politics, because women believe things with passion, and the novels put all manner of silly thoughts in their heads, and novels aren’t reality.

    These books were written 140 years ago. The issue isn’t 24/7 TV or smart phones.

    ______

    Gissing’s better books are highly recommended light reading and are free for download. Orwell recommended New Grub Street, The Odd Women, and Demos.

  67. In olden days, the folks in charge – whether the Nobility, industrial plutocrats, or the Commie bosses – kept the potential pitchfork-wielding riff raff under control with huge private security forces, a secret police network, or a standing army.

    Now, they fund the dregs of society, plus ideology-addled youngsters backed by an army of online middle-age wine drinkers, to go out and smash stuff, peacefully of course. Resist and they’ll come to your house.

    These people feel no remorse about doing it because their behavior is sweetened with anti-racist and Marxist twaddle about social justice.

    The female temperament--nurturing--which is profoundly virtuous in its proper role nurturing her children is simply a bogus sensibility for politics. Politics to maintain civilization is properly about protection (outside) and order (inside).

    Minoritarian propaganda managed to re-purpose female nurturing impulse from their children, to pretty much everything else. Female compliance ... and you have a disaster.

    We literally have tens of millions of women--white women--who care more about being on side with Oprah, or Katie or the gals on the View (and whoever younger women pay attention to), then they do about what they inherited from their ancestors or the future of their own children.

    You're certainly right, said noticing and carping does not fix them. And also correct, that the nationalist right is not winning.

    But instead of your own perpetual whining about alt-right men noticing that most white women are off the reservation, why don't you simply enlighten us as to what we ought to be doing instead?

    What is it that alt-right men ought to be doing to bring women onside? Not interested in more of your butt hurt whining or your fantasy that the alt-right is causing X, Y, Z. Useless.

    Sadly, I struggle mightily (and futilely) with the women in my life over the 'proportionality' thing. These are highly-educated (and highly-paid) professionals. Sometimes I wonder how they keep their 'high-powered' jobs. Is there simply no math in most fields?

    Against my better judgement (hope forever triumphing over experience) I go over and over with them the idea that police activity w/r/t a particular group is more naturally a function of that group's level of criminal activity rather than of its general population cohort.

    Analogies seem to work best, so I try some of them. They generally get a hazy notion but the next time I talk to them, they've imbibed a ton more MSM propaganda and are ready to Defund again. And enslave wypipos if necessary. The hazy notion strikes them as 'wrong' even if it's 'logical'. It seems to be how certain brains work.

    And of course this is why mass-media entertainment/propaganda is so effective. It doesn't work on anything like the cold, hard level of rationality. It's forever an appeal to emotion, and it's very effective.

    Yet for all her math talents, I don’t think she could apply math to anything in the real world to save her life. She also couldn’t find Britain on a map. She was like one of those pure math autists you hear about except she was well-socialized and stereotypically female in every other regard, right down to reading People Magazine and owning a few dozen pairs of shoes.

    She ended up going into some sort of bureaucratic corporate work that utilized about 1% of her math ability, and I think she felt pretty good about it.

    For example if some Mexicans decide "We don't want those Gringos like Fred Reed coming down here, buying up property, banging out women and changing our culture.. We want to keep Mexico, Mexican!", i'm saying that's not against Christ's teaching. If a Chinese Christian couple want their daughter to marry a Chinese Christian boy because they value Chinese culture along with their Christianity ... again, not against Christian teaching. Same for Indians, Arabs, blacks, Hungarians, Filipinos, Swedes and even white Americans.

    Ethno-nationalism is not Christianity, but it is not opposed to Christianity. Christianity is indifferent. Like eating steak or pizza. The brotherhood of Christ is not a "everybody has to move to the same place, speak the same language, have the same culture and become the same shade of brown".

It’s certainly lowering IQs and inhibitions. I think it’s also responsible for the recent revival of crop tops. Clothing was starting to get more modest in the 2010s (due to hipster influence) versus the flashy 2000s, but that’s reversed in the past 2-3 years. Because all the teens who the clothing companies cater to want to look good in their TikTok videos.

    Gen X parents should be ashamed of their kids for using it. Do they not warn teens about pedos the way Boomer parents did to us millennials? Facebook and even Instagram/Snapchat are way less insidious than TikTok.

Gates' wife is another one who sticks her nose into areas she doesn't comprehend but has money to throw around. They have money for a while and they begin to have delusional thoughts about how smart and virtuous they are. Flinging money around they create a stable of flatterers following them, telling them good things about themselves.

    Why don’t they go back to patronizing art, writers, orphanages, and music instead of grand social causes, like it was in olden times with aristocratic women?

    Aristocratic women contributed a lot to the development of Western Civilization (and this even benefitted women- there were never so many famous and talented female painters as during the 1700s). Can’t say the same about the brides of meritocracy.

    Maybe these women like Gates and Scott-Bezos aren’t so much the root of the problem as a symptom, of a society with no soul or purpose.

    I'm pretty good at math, but I had a girlfriend who blew me away in math ability, and this was despite her majoring in English for reasons I never understood. But she still took some math classes in college and solved math problems for fun in her free time.

    Yet for all her math talents, I don't think she could apply math to anything in the real world to save her life. She also couldn't find Britain on a map. She was like one of those pure math autists you hear about except she was well-socialized and stereotypically female in every other regard, right down to reading People Magazine and owning a few dozen pairs of shoes.

    She ended up going into some sort of bureaucratic corporate work that utilized about 1% of her math ability, and I think she felt pretty good about it. I guess to her, being good at math was like being good at crossword puzzles, and the idea of using it for profit or to better understand reality was just boring nonsense.

    Good for her. She’s right on the money. You should’ve married her.

    Interesting, and coincidentally, my college GF was also a math major, and though I was naturally very sharp at math she was sharper still. She didn’t have the lacunae that so many others of the type have, though. Among the few women I’ve known who were math whizzes, she was the most well-rounded person. And attractive, too. Sigh.

    A person’s faith trumps their skin suit. And there is an insinuation on your part that God supports pro white views at the expense of non white views. How perverse.

    Corny, i realizing trying to talk sense to you is pointless. You’re doing some sort of weird establishment line trolling–as if anyone on the planet doesn’t get the globohomo line shoved at them all the time.

    But for the record here’s what i said:

    … with leaders unable to even make the simple observation that there’s nothing about Christianity that requires national or racial suicide. Charity is required. But that doesn’t require integration, much less immigration or abandoning one’s cultural norms.

    Here’s what you’re trying to read from that:

    And there is an insinuation on your part that God supports pro white views at the expense of non white views. How perverse.

    You are confused.

    For example if some Mexicans decide “We don’t want those Gringos like Fred Reed coming down here, buying up property, banging out women and changing our culture.. We want to keep Mexico, Mexican!”, i’m saying that’s not against Christ’s teaching. If a Chinese Christian couple want their daughter to marry a Chinese Christian boy because they value Chinese culture along with their Christianity … again, not against Christian teaching. Same for Indians, Arabs, blacks, Hungarians, Filipinos, Swedes and even white Americans.

    Ethno-nationalism is not Christianity, but it is not opposed to Christianity. Christianity is indifferent. Like eating steak or pizza. The brotherhood of Christ is not a “everybody has to move to the same place, speak the same language, have the same culture and become the same shade of brown”.

    Let me give you some logic:

    For at least the last few decades, racially conscious Whites have achieved...nothing. You have neither stopped us from becoming a minority nor had ant impact on improving our lives in a multiethnic state.

    And a large part of this is that most other Whites loathe you, even if they hate the anti White atmosphere. Your existence is destroying any chance of racial consciousness, because no one wants to be anywhere near you.

    You're taking this remarkably personally, sugar tits. I'm simply telling you to work with the race you claim to want to protect. Be somewhere that White women (and White men who can actually maintain personal relationships) won't feel ill being around and mortified to be seen with. (No, it's not just the Jooze making you personae non grata; try taking some responsibility.)

    But, hey, maybe carping on the interwebs while your enemies get everything they want feels so good you just don't care. Maybe this is just a big 'ol circle jerk. In which case, you're just right wing SJWs.

    Jesse, i think it is obvious that the noticing and carping that alt-right men do about these gaping gender gaps in race-consciousness, PC-ness, establishment obedience, virtue signaling, voting behavior …. whatever are not the *cause* of these gaps.

    You’re certainly right, said noticing and carping does not fix them. And also correct, that the nationalist right is not winning.

    But instead of your own perpetual whining about alt-right men noticing that most white women are off the reservation, why don’t you simply enlighten us as to what we ought to be doing instead?

    What is it that alt-right men ought to be doing to bring women onside? Not interested in more of your butt hurt whining or your fantasy that the alt-right is causing X, Y, Z. Useless. Give us the program–propaganda, policy, whatever–that you think alt-right men should be doing to bring white women back onside. Specifics.
