Identity Stalinism
by Steve Sailer

January 23, 2019

The media’s latest Days of Rage, in which a white boy drove the national press into a frenzy by smiling at the leftist Person of Color banging a drum in his face, was like a greatest-hits collection of my old observations. So I’m going to take a victory lap to review how ideas I’ve been offering for years help explain much of the latest elite fury.

Read the whole thing there.

    Your ‘victory lap’ is well deserved. Although I’ve been suspicious of the left wing agenda of the mainstream press for a quite a few years, this incident does indeed really help to put things into perspective.

    I’m starting to think that in May of 2018, Philip Roth and Tom Wolfe did not die. They got together and merged into one being, a being which ascended to a higher plane of existence and which now uses the human race to make up stories for their own amusement.

  3. All I can say is that
    “It is just the beginning”.
    America’s future would be more like that of South Africa not like Brazil where Whites are the Elite.
    Efforts to seize White wealth will probably begin
    In a few years and Leftists will be claiming that
    “White man White woman couples” are racist and that having White babies is a form of Racism.

    Our country is run by the equivalent of the most primitive tribes of Africa. They believe that if something bad happens it’s because some enemy cast a wicked spell. Here’s the American equivalent: Blacks commit a lot of crime and Hispanics do badly in school? Vicious white people cast spells to make it happen. Can’t find actual, individual vicious white people hexing blacks or Hispanics? Invent a new kind of collective spell called “institutional racism,” so you can blame all white people. And when you find someone who doesn’t believe in spells but talks about race and IQ, crucify him.

  4. Anonymous[243] • Disclaimer says:

    The interesting thing to me is libs piling on who don’t need, by any prevailing standard, to hold an opinion on such a small hatcrime du jour. Is this status sensitivity, or really just Type A competition to be “content providers?” I understand the clickbait interns’ incentive, but why does Alyssa Milano feel the need to play pundit over faddish news filler? Isn’t being Alyssa Milano satisfactory?

  5. If whites acted and thought like the coalition of the fringes’ leadership said we do, the various members would be too busy selling the others out to YT for the coalition to exist.

  6. Jack D says:

    This is like those situations where the cops shoot the black guy holding the gun even if it turns out later that he was the security guard and a good guy. You come upon a situation and the human mind immediately falls upon programmed stereotypes to make sense of it. Of course when you do this to a black person it is “systemic racism” but doing it to whites is okey dokey nowadays.

    This was all very predictable – the Left keeps shooting itself in the foot because they have no insight into their own behavior. They see racism just fine when it is being directed at them but they don’t see their own at all. What they are doing (“punch up”) is pure and holy and not racist, by definition.

    What is even funnier is that when they got called on their racism, it STILL wasn’t their fault. It was the fault of the “Trump Internet” that was poised and ready to pounce on their little error, which was after all made in good faith and with the best of intentions. Yes, it was wrong for them to say that they wanted the white boys and their families all to die a bloody painful death, but it was understandable given their rage at what appeared to be at first the massive disrespect the white boys were giving to a Native American Elder (and a Vietnam Veteran to boot!) by their improper facial expressions and imaginary chants.

    What ive learened

    1. conservative whites love playing the victim

    2. conservatives believe in lies and gaslight

    3. conservatives will excuse evil behavior from white children

    4. conservatives are violent and hate filled

    5. those kids attacked People of Color

    6. those kids deserve the ultimate punishment

  8. From Steve’s article in Taki’s:

    The Democrats’ fundamental problem is that white people, on the whole, just aren’t hate-filled enough for their strategy to wholly succeed.

    The supply of white wrongdoing falls short of demand, so our culture offers rich rewards to those who can concoct instances of whites behaving badly.

    Those two observations bring to mind a question that is bubbling to the surface now: How can we white Americans navigate the double bind we are in?

    So far, we, on the whole, have been behaving well, like the boy in the video. We have been stoic, even trying to flash friendly smiles now and then to diffuse things, but others continue to aim hate at us. More than that, they continue to try to provoke us into behaving badly.

    If we do eventually reach our tipping point and say “enough is enough!” what are we to do? If we assert ourselves and push back, then they will point at us and say that we are confirming their accusations. Media will shout it in chorus, even louder than they do now.

    We are in a bind, because if we do anything to fight back, we will give those who hate us more “proof” to show the gullible public. This has already happened many times, and every time it has happened the media has used normal reactions by whites as evidence against them.

    It is reasonable to assume that this is a goal of all of the tricks that are being played on us. They (whoever “they” are — and many here have their theories) are doing their best to provoke us. If we ever rise up, say, like the Yellow Vests, “they” will be able to point at us and put in play even more stringent condemnations. This could lead to actual government restrictions on our behavior. Tighter security, less patience for our free expression.

    There doesn’t seem to be any way forward. One senses that we are approaching that point at which many of us, especially the young and strong, like that excellent boy, will take a new tack, take to the streets, and take it out on individuals from all of those peripheral groups that are now opposing us. As the saying goes, “this doesn’t end well.”

    So, the real point of this comment is to ask for suggestions, ideas. How can white people move forward inside this hideous false reality that has been forced on them? What can we do about this double bind without giving ammunition to those who hate us, the real haters?

  9. I thought this entire affair was so stupid and obviously a manufactured controversy that I was going to ignore it, but now that the details are out, I think it has a more sinister connotation. What the media and leftists are attempting to do is bully any organized right wing or republican political activism. By showcasing these students on national media and demonizing them, the establishment is exposing them to future leftist harassment and even attack. I’m sure that smirking boy will have less success than comparable students in the college application process now. Perhaps all Covington students will now! There are probably loony leftists apparatchiks at every school just licking their lips with eagerness for their applications to arrive!

    When parents and administrators realize this, they will in the future be reluctant to bring students to rallies or political events realizing the prudence of laying low. It’s sort of like a small scale Charlottesville. Rightist will demur from public demonstration for fear of leftist bullying.

    Welcome to the dilemma faced by patriotic parties/movements in the UK like the BNP or EDL (or even UKIP). Attacks on you will be ignored by the media if serious injury is caused, if you’re chased down the street with things being thrown it’ll be used as proof of your unpopularity.

    If you stand your ground and fight (as EDL often do when attacked), or even if you don’t, the headlines will read “35 arrested as trouble flares at EDL march” – even if every one of those 35 people is a left winger, and the local press will say “their hate-filled marches bring trouble to our streets” – half-true, but highly misleading because all the trouble comes from the other side.

    If someone finally has enough and goes postal like Thomas Mair – who killed his local Labour MP in the UK – stand by for the canonisation of the victim and 24/7 coverage. If someone like Theo Van Gogh is killed – well, he was asking for it, wasn’t he?

    PS – OT, but this is very iSteve

    “Oracle Corp. shorted women and minority workers $400 million in wages by paying them less than other employees, steering them into jobs at lower-level positions, and imposing an “extreme preference” for immigrant visa holders, the Labor Department said in a new legal filing.”

  11. Jack D says:
    @Buzz Mohawk

    You play it just like those white boys did – you don’t take the bait, you don’t fall for the provocation. Yes, they were condemned anyway in the short run but (and this is driving the Left even more wild) in the longer cycle they won the confrontation. Nothing will change the mind of the most extreme, out of touch with reality Leftists but most reasonable people now understand that the initial picture presented of evil whites who might as well have been wearing KKK hoods and robes was not truthful – at a minimum the situation was “more complicated”. Each time one of these hate hoaxes is perpetrated and then turns out to be a dud, it diminishes the impact of the tactic. Yes, the media keeps trying to memory hole them, but ordinary people are not idiots and remember and take media accounts nowadays with a grain of salt.

    Now the media keeps trying to flip the script and tell us that white teenagers from the sticks are really the “privileged” so that it is ok to punch “up” at them (while billionaires are the “oppressed”) but people are not going to accept such topsy-turvy thinking in the long run. And as Gandhi showed, when confronted by bullying you lose if you punch back no matter how many times you are provoked – the way to gain sympathy is to maintain the high ground and make the bully look bad.

    Gandhi had numbers. The British Empire could not realistically go full-Pizarro on the Hindu.

    Sovereignty is always consensus by the majority. When the majority of the Soviets no longer believed in the Soviet Union, it disappeared. NATO gave Gaddafi a push, and his regime–and his whole artificial country–toppled over. When the Baltics asked the Russians to leave, they did. Russians don’t really have it in them to go full-Pizarro any more.

    ISIS very nearly had their own country, but violent, consumptive religions don’t do well turning young people into spouses and parents, which is really all it’s all about. ISIS just doesn’t have the numbers, so they don’t get sovereignty.

    Conservatives are not even half of all white people, and 60 – 90% of the non-whites oppose them politically and culturally. Conservative “Gandhiism” will be crushed.

  14. Bill says:
    @Buzz Mohawk

    We are in a bind, because if we do anything to fight back, we will give those who hate us more “proof” to show the gullible public.

    This is the key sentence. We can fight back after fighting back is no longer taken by the gullible (white) public to be such proof. That will happen after things get much worse. After this public is hardened against such claims by repetitive exposure to what is really going on. So, to answer the question “what must we do:” wait and pray for martyrs.

    Separation is the answer. Hopefully peaceful. The country is too diverse for harmony.

    I could see your point with whites fighting back and being vilified but this also might gain us some respect and could help bargaining when a majority of citizens think we need to disband.

    Or we just go on like this for another 100 years with things getting incrementally worse. But at some point there’s gotta be separation.

    1. Weren’t the Minutemen of 1775?

    2. Snorlax: While in broad and nationwide terms Steve’s statement is definitely correct, you seem to be disputing that it holds in Massachusetts.

    It depends what we mean by “similar to a Minuteman.” I find it improbable, to say the least, that gun-owning and overtly patriotic White-Protestant Massachusetts men who are interested in militias are less likely to vote Republican.

    You must be arguing a softer version of this, namely that as an ethnocultural group, the Massachusetts ‘WASPs’ (of the whom nearly all the Minutemen will have been), sans qualifications like gun-ownership, are less likely to vote Republican. If this is your claim, what groups in your experience are more likely to vote R?

    IOW, who makes up the still-substantial ‘R’ vote below:

    Massachusetts D-R presidential vote split
    1972: 54-45
    1976: 56-40
    1980: 42-42 (Reagan takes EVs by a tenth of a %)
    1984: 48-51 (Reagan takes EVs)
    1988: 53-45
    1992: 48-37
    1996: 62-28
    2000: 60-33
    2004: 62-37
    2008: 62-36
    2012: 61-38
    2016: 60-33

    (Note that Trump did better than Dole ’96 and no worse than any post-Dole Republican, despite worsening racial-political demographics.)

    why does Alyssa Milano feel the need to play pundit over faddish news filler? Isn’t being Alyssa Milano satisfactory?

    No, it’s not satisfactory. She’s too old to be the hot chick, she doesn’t have the chops for Amy Adams/Jessica Chastain-type parts, and it would be a waste of time for her to ugly herself up and beg for an Oscar. As for selling stuff to moms, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Alba are the Coke and Pepsi there, and Milano couldn’t even be RC Cola.

    So SJWing it is.

    Unless someone wants to reboot Who’s The Boss with her as the upper-class single mom who hires a Dominican ex-ballplayer to be her housekeeper.

    Gad! How do I do it?

  31. Steve, fantastic piece today as always, but there’s one particularly bizarre (in my dumb opinion, anyway) aspect of this smirk insanity that goes unmentioned in your article: borderline-hysterical journal obsessions with being bullied in HS (and to a lesser extent, college).  

    I first noticed this during the Kavanaugh imbroglio: a whole subset of people oftentimes well into middle-age who I would imagine enjoy six-figure salaries and a decent amount of social standing (at least in their blue-check, NPR tote-carrying circles) falling to pieces reminiscing about being abused, to varying degrees real or imagined, by the kids who were richer/whiter/more popular/stronger/thinner/more heterosexual etc. than they.  It struck me as, if genuine, a sign of some woefully maladjusted people.

    I mean shit, New York Magazine ran a piece solely comprised of interviews with five people (including an overweight gay Latino, of course) who went to Catholic high schools/colleges for varying degrees of time and had various unpleasant interactions with affluent-ish white teens who could probably be best described as being properly socialized.  No, really:

    https://www.thecut.com/2019/01/catholic-school-alumni-respond-to-covington-catholic-video.html#_ga=2.139081203.1993663772.1548078220-1873303599.1539095604

    Unsurprisingly, most of the journos and other commentariats writing these lame pieces or melting down on Twitter aren’t the most visually arresting people, to say the least.  I doubt many of them were getting laid on prom night.  I guess what I’m wondering is how much of this is just virtue-signalling schtick/grievance kabuki theater performance art vs. actual emotional trauma/damage from largely benign and typical experiences in their formative/teen years?  Like, how genuinely defective and broken are these people?

    Long, meandering blurb, I know. I’m goofing off at work while writing this. Been reading your stuff for close to ten years, though.

    In the NE the most GOP ethnic groups are Scots Irish in the hills and Italians and Orthodox Jews in the cities and suburbs. Also recent East Euro immigrants though they don’t vote in large numbers.

    The old puritan class, if they never changed churches, would be UCC, UU, and independent congregationalists, all ultra left, even compared to other mainline protestant groups.

    I think even this group is moving to the GOP, just from a low base.

    South African whites are tremendously outnumbered. US Whites are not. There are close to 195 million of us. Even accounting for self-hating Whites, there are still well over 100 million.

    If a group that large gets run over by the coalition of the fringes, then it deserves it. For our opponents are not some cohesive, well-oiled machine like conquerors of the past. No, our foes are dregs and degenerates who have little to no martial skills at all.

    Check out the photos sometimes of those reporters and others who blabber about replacing us. Not exactly people to worry about. E.g. check out photos of that Alex chick in a prior post. After seeing her you sort of feel ashamed for having taken her seriously.

    We have the advantage of knowing what is in the hearts and minds of our foes. We have the advantage of facing such a sorry coalition. We have numbers too. If we end up like South African Whites, we will have deserved it.

    While in broad and nationwide terms Steve’s statement is definitely correct

    The Minutemen were Massachusetts-specific.

    You must be arguing a softer version of this, namely that as an ethnocultural group, the Massachusetts ‘WASP,’ sans qualifications like gun-ownership, is less likely to vote Republican.

    Yes. And WASP gun-owners would be less R-voting than other white gun-owners.

    what groups in your experience are more likely to vote R?

    Italians, Portuguese and French-Canadians among others. Irish vote more D in the typical D landslides or when a Kennedy is on the ballot, but more R in close and/or R-won elections, and are more conservative on the issues.

    In Nov. 2012, I used Reuters polling data to find the vote by race and religion; here is the large-n result for the Northeast.

    The Protestant/Catholic difference there is well within the margin of error, and I would say clearly erroneous.

    It’s also out-of-date as pertains to Massachusetts; our WASPs swung extremely hard against Trump and appear to have voted similarly to Jews, Armenians and Hispanics in 2016/8. For example, Dover (MA’s wealthiest town and 56-43 Romney in 2013), which had NEVER voted for a Democrat at the presidential level (it even voted for Goldwater!), went 57-32 Clinton.

    Thanks TD. It’s good to have things clarified and summarized so adroitly .

    And since I’ve “learened” that the truth is ALWAYS the exact opposite of your spewings, we can confirm that even crazy old TD knows the real truth.

    This is the result of demonizing President Trump. The Dems have spun the narrative that Trump is Hitler/Stalin and therefore NOTHING that comes from Hitler/Stalin could possibly be good, so every single thing he does must be resisted and condemned.

    And all who associate with him, his cabinet, his policies, his family, his friends, his food, his dress, his HATS, his pets, etc. must be shamed, doxed, destroyed.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of puppet-sheep who have been swayed by the evil of this adopted Alinsky “position” by the criminal left and their minions. It wouldn’t be so bad if these folk were just puppets, or merely sheep, but puppet-sheep are extremely stupid, and highly resistant to truth. Their minds (such as they are) can NEVER be changed by facts.

    Personally, I’ve read “Human Accomplishment”. I KNOW for a FACT that Europeans (aka ‘white folk’) are superior, at least in the vast majority of the type of accomplishments that matter, either in the recent past, or in the 21st century and going forward.

    And yes, when I say ‘white folk’ I do mean predominately ‘white MEN’. (Sorry ladies).

    So all hail white patriarchy!

    And to think that TD led me to this revelation!

  37. @Buzz Mohawk

    How can white people move forward inside this hideous false reality that has been forced on them? What can we do about this double bind without giving ammunition to those who hate us, the real haters?

    The key to the whole thing is overturning the central (self-imposed) taboo in American culture and politics: i.e., that Whites shall not be allowed to form a group identity or advocate for their interests, as such.

    This will be very, very difficult due to the ingrained cuckery of most Whites in positions of power. But once a tipping point is reached where even the cowards and careerists are not frightened to treat Whites as just another ethnic group, the whole anti-White edifice will come tumbling down.

    To begin the process, Whites need to wrap their minds around the new paradigm that Legacy Americans are now an embattled minority. The anti-White left fully controls the Media, Hollywood, the Permanent Bureaucracy, Academia, and even the crony capitalist corporations.

    So reject all obsolete sentiments of collective guilt or noblesse oblige. Instead, simply develop a mental immunity to charges of “racism.” No apologizing or virtue signalling that “I am one of the good ones,” and “of course there is real discrimination against marginalized people but . . .”

    If wanting equal treatment is “racist,” then color me “racist.” (Maybe we should own the word like blacks call each other “my nigga.”)

    In terms of forming tactics and strategy, I think a good guideline is to ask ourselves WWJD? — By that, I mean “What Would Jews Do?”

    If someone tries to shame the Jews about their oppression of Palestinians do they cringe and grovel and apologize? Hell no. They go on the offensive and accuse their accuser of “Anti-Semitism.” Legacy Americans likewise need to stay on the offensive against anti-White racism. In addition to being effective, this position has the added benefit of being morally correct.

  38. @Tiny Duck

    ‘What ive learened…’

    My latest theory is that you’re actually on the radical Right and are practising black propaganda. After all, consider ‘6. those kids deserve the ultimate punishment.’ Obviously, we’re intended to believe someone from the Left still thinks that.

    The inconsistent misspellings confirm this. You can’t handle ‘I’ve’ but manage to negotiate ‘ultimate punishment’ without a slip?

    ‘… Even accounting for self-hating Whites, there are still well over 100 million.’

    The bulk of ‘self-hating Whites’ are simply ideological conformists. They go along with it all because they don’t want a fight.

    If we can just wrest control of the pulpit from the politically-correct — or even just make it clear there is no pulpit — most of them will come around.

    It’s dreadful that this keeps being the analogy, but the situation really is like the Nazis and Germany. They’re a small minority — until they’re not. Then once they’re in power, everyone will decide they’re wonderful after all. Think anyone’s going to miss all those homosexuals parading themselves, incompetent affirmative action cadets, and deliberately annoying women?

  46. When the video first came out a lot of conservatives accepted the media’s version without any scepticism. Like Tucker Carlson they want to believe it isn’t really about race. These are the conservatives who post MLK quotes on their Facebook page or were angry at the kid because an Indian was involved. I don’t understand the hand-wringing by conservatives over slavery and the Indians. The Soviets and Chinese killed millions of their own people in the last hundred years while we’re supposed to feel bad about things that happened even further back in our history that weren’t nearly as bad.

    The globalizer JEW/WASP ruling class of the American Empire wants to smash the crud out of the European Christian ancestral core of the United States in order to atomize and splinter any cohesive force strong enough to resist the machinations of the ruling class.

    White Core America stands alone as the last holdout to the globalizer’s plan to make every man or woman bow down to their evil overlordship.

    These filth mugs in the ruling class are kept in power by electronics. How so?

    The evil JEW/WASP ruling class uses its control of the electronic propaganda to distract and manage the opinion of the American public.

    The evil JEW/WASP ruling class uses an electronic currency conjured up out of thin air to keep the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate inflated. This is a tactic designed to buy off certain generational cohorts to keep them quiet about the anti-White policies that the ruling class pushes.

    ……

    That last point leads us to the first corollary of Auster’s First Law of Majority/Minority Relations in Liberal Society: The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that group’s bad behavior.

    The First Law and its corollary are intrinsic to liberalism. Once the equality of all human groups is accepted as a given, any facts that make a minority or foreign group seem worse than the majority native group must be either covered up or blamed on the majority.

    Despite the aformentioned internecine warfare in the Democratic party, those two groups are locked down — especially in 2020 when Trump runs again.

    The first group hates the Donald because all their girlfriends at the daycare center think he’s a mean bully, and pack thinking is the norm. Plus the bad Orange Man reminds them of the rich lothario who pumped and dumped them, and left them with their Beta schlub in the 3-bedroom ranch.

    The second group has the same pack attitude, plus the younger rich guys pumping and dumping them currnetly on the free-sex carousel remind them of a younger DJT.

    “I saw nothing improper among the gatherings of the Indigenous Peoples’ March nor of the Israelites’ gathering. The teens were disgustingly biased, insulting, and totally out of control….. ”

    “It is clear that most of the blame can be attributed to the chaperones who should have kept their students under control. How did they allow their students to make such a scene.

    Trump is somewhat unique in that he is a populist rather than a mainstream GOPe figure. As such, his big appeal is with non-college whites and not with the rich educated whites in a place like Dover. Mass last went Republican in 1984 so it really doesn’t make a damn bit of difference how the rich whites of Dover (and by definition there aren’t that many rich people to begin with) vote.

    As we saw in the differing Senate vs House results in the recent election, Democrats can flip certain upscale suburban districts by appealing to nice white college educated ladies but this is not enough to flip entire states or the Electoral College. Or at least Trump hopes so.

    The Complaint filed by the DOL is interesting due to its internal incoherence and its mangling of statistics. Basically, it says that Oracle prefers Asians, who make up 75 percent of its workforce. Yet Oracle is supposedly also discriminating against Asians because, on average, they make 4% less pay than the 25% of the workforce which is white.

    Yep. Standard first move in all insurgencies is control off its own group, with an (shadow) internal police force. That’s followed by an external force of some sort — antifa clones, lawfare, respected commentators, etc At that point the insurgency can support its members when attacked, establish a shadow judiciary, and (in short) become an armed version of Tammany Hall.
    Considerable variation is possible within this framework.
    But first the base population has to want the insurgency. Absent that, recruiting and shadow taxation aren’t feasible. We’re getting there. Probably arrive after the Democratic white leadership is rejected and the successor groups start competing to be the first to eject all their Whites (as did the NAACP in the AD 1960s and the Women’s March much more recently).

    But, if you look deeper, the anti-H1B angle is Trumpish. Once you brush aside the internal inconsistencies in their logic (they are discriminating against Asians by hiring them) the bottom line is that they want Oracle to hire more American citizens and fewer visa holders.

    The corporate greed at Oracle has clearly gotten out of hand and they deserve to be slapped back. It’s one thing to hire a few H1B’s to cut your average cost and it’s another to hire NOTHING BUT H1B’s. 9 out of 10 of their hires were H1B’s. Typically when S. Asians take over an IT dept they only hire their fellow S. Asians in the future. It doesn’t occur to them to do otherwise – NATURALLY you favor your own people. Only whites are altruistic.

    I’m a Core American at the fringe of the Democratic Party. I live in a state of confused frustration. There’s a few of us.

    ” … today’s rules of Identity Stalinism.”

    Steve Sailer nails it with this term. Too many Twitter, internet, and Fox News conservatives commit a serious rhetorical error when they refer to this new American left (the grandbabies of the old New Left, who must be so proud) as “fascists”. They are authoritarian, but these new leftist jerkoffs are cousins to Stalinism. I prefer Maoist.

  90. The three most powerful caucuses in the Democratic Party are the Hispanic, Asian Pacific-Islander, and the Black. Nothing can now pass through committee on the left without all three of their approval so they are de facto, TPTB within their party. On top of that, 50-60% of their funds come from Jewish Americans which has its own filtering effect. They just keep old white goy feminists like Pelosi around to put a white face on the party to keep from scaring the other white people.

    IMHO, this is why you won’t see anything happen on immigration unless it is capitulation by one side or the other. The coalition that is the Democratic party is very rigid and cannot withstand even a small amount of infighting. A fence will block more Hispanics so that is a non-starter. Interior enforcement harms Asians more because they get sent a longer way back and it is much harder for them to get back in so that is out too. Secure bio-metric ID would help but if everybody had one blacks could not bitch about being denied the right to vote taking away their best red meat topic so that is out also. So all the tools Trump has as President, even though they are the least effective overall, are incredibly divisive for the left coalition which is why he needs to declare an emergency and just build it. Once it is up it will be all over except the crying.

    The original idea was that these groups could become like everybody else in the US _if they were given time and tolerance_. That’s what T. Roosevelt tried to prevent the US from descending into a “polyglot boarding house”, and it seemed (but only seemed) to work, back then c.a. AD 1900.

    This idea of tolerance to give time for adaptation became tolerance for no particular reason (“tolerance” was said by Dobson to be the “chief tolerance of the Christian man”, nor reason or function given, back when Focus on the Family was important).

    Then it was changed to “tolerance is oppression”, still a duty, but now an offense as well.

    So it wasn’t so much fear or even idiocy as it was faith in the government that had won WW II and made the US predominant in world affairs. Genocide, of course, is about the biggest breach possible in the understanding the US citizens had it their Federal Government, and it started early, during the demilitarization push after WW II. People in those years were called the “silent generation” for a reason — they were made silent. By the 1960s, the silent ones were impersonated by actors (I was there, NYC East Village, Summer of Love. It was crowds and a few actors playing revolutionary, no real revolutionaries at all. Now, the silent ones are replaced by actors, foreign nationals, and groups that can’t exist in industrial societies.

    But we’re at the end of that, now.

    As it was for _Macbeth_, this sort of thing makes opposition that its choices are limited to chaos and watching their children be badly hurt and sometimes killed. Chaos usually wins, no matter the cost.

    Here’s what comes next, in mythological terms. Set was, in Egyptian mythology, the spirit of chaos, which underlies everything. Set has been under the discipline of dead social order, has in fact been the chief servant in the House of the Dead, by Anubis, Lord of the Dead, for a millennium. The “father and son” can be taken as “past and future”. With those interpretation, it fits our circumstances perfectly.

    Eventually Set (Chaos) realizes that he’s been a slave to an order that hates him, and says the following, which Chaos always end up saying to Order, as the silenced generations will say to their silencers:

    You have trained me for a thousand years in the House of the Dead
    that I might kill my son and my father.
    But now you face Set the Destroyer
    and your days are numbered.
    _Creatures of Light and Darkness_, R. Zelzny, 1969.

    And that’s what will be said in the USA (slightly edited) at some point in the future, exact time depending on chaotically sourced events.

    Note: the above is influenced by J. Peterson’s interpretation of Egyptian myth. Peterson isn’t all impractical fun and games.

    There are a number of people, foreign and domestic, who like to fan the flames of division.

    The Russians who were fanning the flames in 2016 were not only posting alt-right comments, but were also the most vocal and most prolific BLM posters.

    There are several types of people who will post truly divisive things.:

    1. Foreign agents who hope to divide Americans
    2. Federal agents provocateur
    3. Whackos
    4. People who stand to profit from division.
    5. Sheep who follow what is considered politically fashionable, not realizing how they are being manipulated

    #4 includes a large group.

    It includes big business that knows a divided people are easily exploited. Why else would big business be so much in favor of immigration from “diverse” places? Because the workers are divided.

    It includes Identity Politicians whose followers are more numerous when there are divisions.

    One can fight racial division better without witch hunts.

    If you have never done so, I would highly recommend going to an Indian Pow Wow sometime.

    Cheap entertainment.
    Tradition is highly regarded. For example, only men can drum. Women never drum. It is not their role.
    Veterans are highly respected. Some events and some roles are for veterans only. For example, if an eagle feather falls and touches the floor, all must be completely silent until a veteran picks it up. None but a warrior may touch it.
    Elders are respected.

    Going to a Pow Wow would do far more to promote harmony between white and red than 1 million tweets.

    Right. So why didn’t that translate to the Supreme Executive Power that HC wanted?

    Well, because the Electoral College is the way it is for a reason. People who occupy territory have more on the ground power than do people who don’t. The majority vote that Hillary got was from foreign nationals and, to be blunt, vote theft. See what that buys you in a non-electoral process.

    What it comes to is that cities are now islands in a countryside that has rejected them. The cities have no economic importance other than finance, and are in fact unable to so much as maintain their capital plant. They are, moreover, about the only concentrated targets for foreign enemy the US has [1].

    If things come to a serious contest, your side is toast. The Left are fools to rely on violence; it’s the one area where they can’t compete. This Catholic school business — the Left has graduated from political violence to terrorism, targeting children _who were playing stupid games assigned them by a Left teacher_.

  106. In my mind I love replaying the whole scenario with the shoe on the other foot:

    1. A group of Black teens waits for a charter bus in DC. They are wearing “I’m with her” Hillary hats.

    2. A group of Neo-Nazis, all White adult males, begins to taunt the group, calling them “Negroes” and someone yells “Go back to Africa.”

    3. An individual from a group sacred to the right – let’s say a White, male decorated Marine combat vet – sees what’s going on. He marches in front of the Black teens and starts banging on a military drum while singing the Marines’ Hymn in their face. The Black teens respond by smirking at him (because there wouldn’t be a full-on fist fight by now if it were Black teens…)

    Has the left really gone this insane? I went on the NYTimes comments section of David Brook’s tepid mea culpa and was shocked (but should I be anymore) to find the lefty Times readers still defending the Indian and attacking the White teens. Again, keep in mind these were teens and the other all adults.

    The left keeps on topping itself. When the London Underground stopped using “ladies and gentleman” to not offend trans people I thought, surely, this must be the bottom. Apparently not.

    This is mad. There’s simply no arguing with these people.

    Oracle robbed just about anyone who wasn’t a pasty white male of $400m, says Uncle Sam: Lucrative govt IT contracts at risk in discrim row

    The bizarre clickbait headline is followed by:

    Amid the Dept of Labor’s allegations is the claim that Big Red prefers to scoop up foreign Asian graduates on the cheap, sponsor their US immigration visas, and then keep a relatively low ceiling their wages. We’re told that if you happen to be Asian and a recent college graduate – particularly an Indian grad – Big Red will favor you over other university-age candidates, and offer you a job in America as a level-one professional techie.

    Whites, Hispanics, and African Americans were all unfairly snubbed during the recruitment process of college-age kids, according to the department’s complaint.

    Well, databases ARE boring….

    While the color of your skin may help you get aboard, it won’t help you embiggen your wage packet, it is claimed. Raises are seemingly reserved for White blokes. … Dept of Labor said Asians and African Americans had lower than expected pay compared to their White colleagues, and women lower than men, even when factors from full-time status and global career level, to job specialty, estimated prior work experience, and company tenure were taken into account.

    Lousy employer, apparently.

    And there is a take on everything.

    In a statement, Oracle’s top brass said: “This meritless lawsuit is based on false allegations and a seriously flawed process within the OFCCP that relies on cherry-picked statistics rather than reality. We fiercely disagree with the spurious claims and will continue in the process to prove them false. We are in compliance with our regulatory obligations, committed to equality, and proud of our employees.”

    I’ve never been to a pow wow but I did once witness a dance ceremony at a New Mexico Pueblo. This was something that the Indians were doing for themselves and not as a tourist attraction – aside from my family and the residents of the pueblo there was hardly anyone else there. The dance mixed elements of Catholicism with Indian religion. The Spanish priests told them that they could keep worshipping the Corn Goddess but from now on they would have to call her the Virgin Mary and they were OK with that. Certain parts of the ceremony were conducted by the men in their kiva (lodge) and were off limits to everyone.

    Then one of the local families invited us to her house for lunch – it was apparently the saints day of someone in the household so it was a day of celebration and the custom was to invite guests for a meal. The food was Southwestern/American but someone in the household worked in a Chinese-American restaurant so they had all kinds of tacky knick knacks that you would see in such a place – Chinese restaurant placemats with the Chinese Zodiac on them, little umbrellas for the drinks, etc. , which I assume they had liberated from their employer (nothing of great value). It was all quite mind boggling but everyone was very nice and welcoming. I really didn’t (and still don’t) know what to make of it but it was certainly different.

    Identity Stalinism or Identity Hitlerism?

    Stalinism was about class war. Who/Whom was determined mainly by class(though ‘class’ could be defined rather flexibly). After all, peoples of all ethnic backgrounds participated in the Soviet project. Josef Stalin himself was a Georgian working with many non-Russians to rule over the Russian Empire.

    On the other hand, I suppose the current PC is Stalinist in the Orwellian sense because of political fluidity amidst ideological rigidity. In some ways, Stalinism was hard-leftist and Marxist-Leninist, but in the end, whatever Stalin said was the ultimate truth(until Stalin said something else). So, Nazi Germany was enemy forever prior to 1939, friend from 30 to 41, and enemy again from 41 to 45. Such discrepancy was less problematic with fascism that favored ideological ‘creativity’ and pluralism, aka the Third Position. In contrast, Stalinism claimed to be the highest achievement of Marxist-Leninist ideology but so often deviated from its ideals according to Stalin’s whims. And, there is something similar in the politics of the current West. For one thing, the Truth is less about a set of values or principles that the whims of Jewish Personality. So, ‘Nationalism good for Israel, bad for Hungary. Nukes good for Israel, bad for Iran. Cheney bad for failed war in Iraq, but Trump also bad for wanting to pull out from Middle East.’
    In some ways, PC is about rigidity of passion. PC folks easily get triggered by the slightest deviance, and yet, rules change so fast that even many PC folks aren’t sure of the latest trends and what they’re supposed to bark at and when. One difference between Stalinism and Globo-Homo is there was genuine ideological underpinning to communism whereas Globo-Homo is less about ideology than iconography. A kind of ICON Curtain has descended on the West, and that is why the image of the white kid with ‘smirk'(looked more like a bemused smile to me) was so triggering. According to PC, white male, esp with MAGA hat, is the Iconic Image of Evil. And that was enough for the Iconoclasmic rage. Iconoclasm is the Rage-Orgasm of the globo-homo progs. Iconography for the good, iconoclasm for the bad. Even the use of terminology is iconocentric in current PC. Marxists spoke of the proletariat and bourgeoisie, terms emphasizing economic stations of peoples. But a term like ‘white privilege’ conjures White Face as evil. And a term like ‘people of color’ creates a mental image of people of various races and colors. And it’s telling that women are now so much into vagina and even wear ‘pussy hats’ or clothing shaped like actual poons. Icunts. And when we think of homos, we don’t really think of ideas or values. We just think of homo-as-saint characters on TV shows, ‘rainbow’ flags, and ‘gay pride’ parades. And homoshering of food is more fun than koshering. We aren’t sure which foods are ‘kosher’ or why, but look at those ‘rainbow’ pack of Oreo cookies. Right, I just love to bite into food thinking of homos buggering each other or a guy having his penis cut by Frankenstein Medicine.

    The problem for Jews is they don’t have much iconic status. They once did as comedians in a more inhibited and cerebral age. Back then, Jews as subversive agents had lots of iconic value as agents for greater liberty. Lenny Bruce wasn’t a looker but his foul talk seemed daring. But we now live in a shameless age of cultural filth, and so, no Jewish guy can score points just by being subversive or going on and on about his pud like Philip Roth or Ron Jeremy. And as our culture is anti-intellectual, Jews won’t gain much ground by being like Norman Mailer — novelist and public intellectual — and Susan Sontag, an essayist who wrote on difficult matters, the Jewish Mind gets less respect. There was a time when the culture made a big deal of Woody Allen trying to make serious movies, the American Bergman. While the culture has grown more uninhibited in terms of sex and violence, it has grown more stunted intellectually due to power of PC and idolatry(over ideology or as the new ideology). Things got so crazy that it takes real courage for someone like Jordan Peterson to say, “Wait a minute.. that man is a man, not a woman.” The culture is retarded and anti-intellectual… or it is pseudo-intellectual or schizo-intellectual. It’s not sane about anything. Jewish comedians used to score points by using wit to subvert sacred cows. It was easier to do in the past when Sacred Cows were associated with Power, thus ‘punching up’ to Wasps and White Christians. But now, the Sacred Cows are associated with Powerlessness even though Jews, homos, and blacks have lots of power. Comedians can still beat up on whites, but at this point, it’s like beating a dead horse or feeding a fed horse. Norman Mailer warned of the ‘fascism of the left’ as more dangerous because, traditionally, the left defined itself as the power of freedom against tyranny and repression. But when the struggle itself turns dogmatic and hardline, there is no place to go for freedom. People went to the left for freedom it couldn’t find on the right, but if the left is for dogma, then freedom is dead all around. Granted, the dangers of the Left were evident from the beginning with the French Revolution. And Orwell wrote the perfect book on Stalinism or radical leftism as tyranny beyond tyranny. Still, many people in the West chose to believe the failure of Eastern Communism had less to do with ideology than Oriental Despotism of Slavicism.

    Because Jews have less iconic power now, they must maintain grip-and-whip on their proxies with the more iconic or ‘idolic’ power. They are blacks due to sports and music. And homos for their flaming narcissism. Most POC groups have no iconic power but, as the saying goes, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Diversity has been promoted as an iconic image of New America where All the World is drinking coke and singing(or maybe ‘twerking’) in perfect harmony. Because Jews control finance, academia, media, deep state, courts, law firms, and most whore politicians, they have lots of tricks to control the dogs. Jews are masters, and their proxies are like dogs. But, dogs are not always easy to train. Sure, you can make them track a scent, but dogs sometimes have a mind of their own.. or they might become distracted by something other than the scent. Or, what if the dogs mistake YOU for the scent. This is problematic for Jews because the ‘scent’ of whiteness is sometimes detected on Jews by non-whites. “No, bad doggy, my smell is holocausty-whitey, good. Go after nazi-whitey, bad.” Also, it takes some time and effort to train dogs. Some of these immigrant groups come from nations where people have been trained to dislike Jews. Now, it’s a tall order for Jews to re-train Muslims and such folks to love Jews. But maybe they can be trained to bark and bite so furiously at Bad-whitey that they won’t bother with Jewish-whitey. This is why yellow dogs are especially useful. Yellows come with either neutral or pro-Jewish attitudes(because they love to suck up to power), and so, Jews can train them to be like Sarah Jeong. As for folks from Latin America, Jews know they can easily make them bark at Gringo. White Latinos have this envy for Anglo-Americans, and so, Latin whites and Jewish whites make common cause to take more from northern whites. As for the browns, they feel resentment against blanco. It doesn’t matter whether it’s Latin whites or gringo whites. Even as they want to live under richer gringos, they are filled with inferiority complex, and Jews play on that. But Muslims and blacks are problematic dogs to train. Muslims have a very proud religion that isn’t about turn-the-other-cheek. Also, POC ideology actually favors them against Jews in a way. Many folks around the world see the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as WHITE Jewish colonialists vs brown oppressed. As for blacks, they are dawgs than dogs, or dogs-with-attitude. Unlike yellow dogs and brown dogs, blacks are not easy to train. They like to let the good rabbits run and chase after them. Also, as dawgs are semi-wolf-like in aggression, they get pissed if the master demands too much. Or black dawgs go too far with the aggression. When the Jewish master tells black dawgs to bark at whitey, he doesn’t necessarily mean that they should run wild and burn down entire cities, messing things up for gentrification as well. But black dawgs often get out of control, as with BLM fiasco. (So, Jews have been trying to spin it as controlled by Russia.)

    Jewish Power is crucial in the equation because the elites get to call the shots through control of the Megaphone and Methadone. Jews can rouse people to hatred or soothe them with happy feely stuff. Take the Women’s March. Why was it shut down for being ‘antisemitic’ but not ‘anti-Palestinian’? After all, many Jewish women in feminism support Zionism that crushes Palestinians in West Bank. Also, lots of Jewish women in media, academia, and Deep State have pushed policies that spread Wars for Israel all over Middle East and North Africa. Why didn’t anyone sound the alarm about how feminism and the Women’s March movement have too many Zionist and Lesbian women who’s been supporting neo-imperialism, Zionist tyranny over Palestinians, and globalist wars? It’s because Jews control the means of discourse, the platforms, and the money. To put on massive events, you need money and good media coverage. Jewish Power is okay with Women’s March being full of Zionist women and lesbians who support the Deep State and Neo-Imperialism, BUT my oh my, something must be done about all those ‘anti-Semites’.
    Consider the anti-BDS laws. It is the Jews who invaded Palestine, drove out native folks and who continue to occupy West Bank. Jews also violate international norms and have 300 nukes made from stolen uranium from the US. But the US sends billions in aid to Israel, and both Political Parties suck up to Jewish Power while Palestinian-Americans and their supporters are fired and blacklisted for standing up for justice for Palestinians. Now, it’d be one thing if one could choose to support or condemn Israel OR support or condemn Palestinians. A matter of personal conscience and liberty. But in the US, one has no choice but to favor Israel over Palestinians in all the institutions and industries that count. If you’re homeless, you can use free speech. But if you’re a person of any consequence, you will be utterly destroyed if you support BDS.

    Jewish anti-whiteness has several facets to it.

    1. There is fear based on actual history. There have been times when White Christians and Neo-Pagans did hurt Jews real bad. Jews have deep historical memory and know well that history can change fast. So, there is genuine Jewish fear of White Power.

    2. There is whiteness as convenient scapegoat. This is especially useful for Jews because they are the new ruling class. Generally, those on top get the most criticism and abuse from below. Jews don’t mind criticism of the elites in Israel because both elites and people are Jewish. So, the criticism of elite power in Israel isn’t about ‘antisemitism’ but abuse and corruption. But in the US, Jews fear that criticism of Jewish elites can turn into anti-Jewish animus or call out on what is essentially Jewish supremacism. Then, it’s convenient for Jews to have so many people blame ‘white privilege’ for all the problems. Even as or especially because Jews constantly vilify Wasps, Jews need them to stick around if only as Evil Icons or Straw Men for bashing. Wasps are the useful decoy or degoy. So, in Hollywood movies, the Face of Evil is usually some Waspy type who heads a corporation or department. Or some Russian-type.

    3. Another reason why Jews are so anti-white is because they are so dependent on white. Even if whites don’t become anti-Jewish, Jews hate the notion of white autonomy, or whites feeling pretty good to be white. “It’s Okay to be White” pissed off so many Jews. If whites feel that way, they will gain pride and confidence. They would no longer need to atone by obeying a morally superior holy group for redemption. But the fact is Jewish Power is all head and no body. For example, how could the US military serve as the arm of Zionists IF white generals and soldiers feel that the US military exists mainly to serve and defend the US, not to serve in Middle East wars for Israel? So, Jews have to inject continuous doses of ‘white guilt’ to make whites lose pride and confidence. A guilty people feel they must serve others for atonement, and Jewish Power naturally says ‘you must serve us’.
    The Diversity Stuff is really just a ruse. If most Jews are really into Equal Justice for All Peoples, why do they insist the US support Israel against Palestinians, Syria, and Iran? The problem for Jews is that they are essentially pushing a tribal agenda spun as universal agenda. To fool us, Jews use terminology like ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ AND iconography of People of Color, but when we look at the nitty-gritty details of globalism, it’s always JEWS FIRST and ISRAEL FIRST. Look at US vs Russia, US vs Iran, US vs Palestinians, US vs Syria, US vs Libya, and etc, and the Surest Common Denominator is they are all designed to serve Jewish interests. I mean, what do Mexican-Americans care about Syria? What do black-Americans care about Iran? What do hillbillies in W. Virginia care about expanding NATO to Ukraine? What do Filipino-Americans care about Libya? What do Italian-Americans care about BDS? It’s all about Jews, but Jews know they can’t sell it as such… so we are told that a nuclear-armed Iran is going to blow up the US, Russia is out to grab the world, China is planning to take over everything, and other such nonsense. Now, I’m thinking that many POC at elite levels know that Jews are full of it, but they go along with the charade because it’s their only ticket into the corridors of power and privilege. And this is why Jews love to parade around Obama. He’s been a good boy who did the bidding of Jews and their homo allies. He was made president and was showered with millions and millions of money and glorious media coverage. Uncle Charm.
    That said, there is something to admire about Jews. Just consider. Look at all those Muslims in the US military who take orders from the Zionist-controlled government to go destroy Muslim nations. If Muslim-Americans are ordered to drop bombs to kill Arabs and Muslims in the Middle East, they will do so. But imagine if Muslim-Americans have an average IQ of 130, take over much of media and elite institutions. Suppose they use their media and money power to vilify Israel as the greatest abuser of human rights, a ‘New Nazi Nation’. Suppose the Muslim-American elites steer the US to use sanctions to kill 100,000s of Jewish kids and to employ shock-and-awe tactics to blow Israel to smithereens. How many Jewish-Americans would join in this massacre? Probably none. On that score, Jews are better than white cucks and Muslim morons.

    4. Another reason why Jews and POC are so anti-white is they are addicted to whiteness. Despite all the anti-white iconoclasm, the fact is whiteness still has tremendous iconic value. Black athletes want blonde white women. Look at Tiger Woods. He was celebrated for his mixed-race-ness but he never went for mixed-race women but for Aryan-looking women. Look at silly Asians with their hair-dyeing and plastic surgery, or their videogames with white-looking characters. Hayao Miyazaki’s movies were all set in some white fantasy lands before TORORO, and even there, Asian characters are drawn with features that look more Caucasian. And in Latin America, brown folks are addicted to Soap Opera with mostly white characters. And men in Turkey and Middle East got the Natasha Syndrome.

    https://www.forbes.com/2008/11/24/russia-bond-girls-oped-cx_mk_1125kaylan.html#2515ef1b61aa

    Because all the world wants whiteness — good governance, personable-ness, ability & competence, sexual attraction, balance of reason and emotion, etc — , they hate the idea of whites owning whiteness. If whites own whiteness, then whites would get to decide what to do with their lands, passion, abilities, sex appeal, legacy, and etc. What’s the difference between a woman of dignity and a whore? Woman of dignity has control over her body and decides who can be with her. In contrast, a whore is open to anyone with a few bucks. (Odd thing about Abortion Rights is it’s sold as women’s control over her own body but actually promotes behavior where she has less self-control because she can always negate the unwanted pregnancy with sucking out the fetus. She can act like a whore without suffering the consequence.) A woman of dignity owns herself and her own body. She gets to determine who can be with her. A whore, on the other hand, has to do what the pimp tells her to. Her body must put out to all comers willing to pay.
    Similarly, white dignity and autonomy would mean that whiteness has value in and of itself. It has meaning as heredity, legacy, heritage, and history. If whites are unique and have dignity, they can decide their own destiny and say NO to non-whites who want to partake of whiteness.
    Then, the ONLY way to make whiteness accessible to all the world is to commoditize it into a product, and the end-logic of this is the pornification of whiteness as meat. And it won’t be long before globo-homo forces will call for legalization of prostitution.
    In a way, what was done to Slavic women in Israeli and Arab brothels was hardly different from what is being done to whiteness as a whole all around the world. Whites are being told that they don’t own their whiteness. White lands are not white. White history is not white. Ancient Greece was not white. Medieval Europe was not white. White heroes are not white. (Let’s cast blacks as Achilles, Julius Caesar, Lancelot, and Hamilton.) White bodies are not white and put out to other races as servings and offerings. So, if 100 million black African men move to Europe, each is deserving of a white womb to produce black babies. And the US as white-envisioned and white-made nation? No way, that’s ‘racist’. Just let tons of browns from south of the border barge in and grab SWPM or Stuff White People Made. Even though the psycho who killed the plastic surgeon for passing ‘white features’ to Asians was a nutter, he had a point. Another race was appropriating specific features of whiteness for itself. He was accused of ‘white supremacism’, but aren’t Asians the Real White Supremacists by undergoing surgery to replace ‘ugly’ Asian features with ‘beautiful’ white ones? And all these immigration patterns have one thing in common: We want to be with white than with our own kind. Jewish immigration always preferred whiteness.

    http://articles.latimes.com/1993-08-11/news/mn-22701_1_white-supremacist

    So, this aspect of anti-whiteness is really a paradox. Jews and non-whites beat up on whitey to destroy the notion that proud whites own whiteness. That way, ashamed whites will market whiteness as just a commodity for all of humanity to buy or partake of.

  122. Sounds like there’s a coup in Venezuela. I assume the CIA are the organisers though I may be wrong – Venezuela seems to be off the radar these days.

    A long time back, but I read an interesting passage in that great flying memoir Fate Is The Hunter, where the author had to fly a new plane down to Brazil in the 30s and was nearly killed when the plane was sabotaged at a remote staging airfield (someone put a pint of water in the engine which blew off the oil filler when it turned to steam).

    It turned out that in the mid-30s South American passenger flights were dominated by German airplanes, airlines and pilots, and the American government used all its considerable clout to replace them with American airlines, aircraft and pilots. The author was delivering a plane to Rio.

    The State Department had finally become alarmed at the domination of South American airlines by the Germans. They were particularly strong in Brazil, Colombia and Bolivia. They hired every (South American) national they could to aid their own pilots and technicians, and then they hired relatives of those already employed. And then they hired the relatives of the relatives. Thus the Germans and nationalised Germans, who had never really forsaken the fatherland, became an extremely popular force throughout South America…

    It would be better if you left – better if you had never come. Because of you many people have lost their jobs, and a job anywhere in South America is a precious thing… I am probably the only person in Bolivia who is happy to see you. Even so I advise you to be careful. Most people here and in Brazil would prefer to see you fail. Some of them may even help you to fail.

    Arizona rednecks win a round against the ACLU.

    BY LEO W. BANKS
    Thursday, May 19, 2005 12:01 a.m. EDT

    TUCSON, Ariz.–Anybody who appreciates a good yuck was sad to see the Minutemen pack up their pickups and go home. After all, it wasn’t every day that we got to enjoy the spectacle of sunscreen-lathered ACLU observers chasing volunteer border-watchers through the desert. But in the media bonfire accompanying Arizona’s Redneck Revolt, we saw the cultural divide separating media elites from ordinary people–those with BlackBerries and $150 hairdos versus folks with tobacco bulges in their cheeks.

    In the view of most of the reporters who parachuted into Arizona for this story and, disturbingly, local ones as well, you’d get the distinct impression that the Minutemen are the problem along the border. That’s right. America needn’t worry about the thousands who bust into the country every night. No, the real danger are those yahoos who think calling the cops when they see somebody breaking the law is a good idea.

    Never mind that it worked, more or less. In April, the number of illegals coming across along the Naco corridor, where the Minutemen were stationed, fell [….]

    Who is Leo W. Banks? Where is he today?

    Luck would have it that he runs a website called LeoWBanks.com which explains it all. To bring this back full-circle to the Minutemen of 1775 and to the state (or “commonwealth”) of Massachusetts, look where Leo W. Banks is from:

    The various groups comprising the Coalition of the Fringes are entirely dependent on patronage from the government and from globalist billionaires. They obey orders became they have no choice. If their cushy bureaucratic and academic sinecures were taken away from them they’d starve.

    Take the TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists). They’re currently getting the daylights kicked out of them for their wicked transphobia. It doesn’t matter. They will remain loyal members of the Coalition of the Fringes because they have nowhere else to go. We’re taking about fat ageing lesbian feminists, entirely unemployable in the real world. If the Women’s Studies departments and the women’s health centres and the rape crisis centres get closed down what the heck are they going to do? And if they’re naughty those jobs will be taken away from them. They’ve already been punished by having their wimmin’s music festivals confiscated.

    What the TERFs are actually going to do is to grovel and beg for forgiveness. They don’t have any choice.

    Those kids really need to take them all to task over this. The black Hebrew Israelites were clearly harassing children with threats of violence, blatant racism, and the like. There are laws against even adults behaving this way towards adults. And if they can get a criminal charge over it, then they can more easily be found guilty in civil court and have to pay the victims. Quite likely, Nathan’s intentional harassment could also follow a similar route, given he intentionally walked over to them, looking to harass them.

    Threats of violence and the like from all the blue checks warrant their own charges. And what about a formal letter to Twitter demanding that the accounts be suspended/closed under Twitter’s own rules? If Twitter demonstrably fails to act, and any one of those people issuing a threat is found guilty in court, Twitter would also be guilty of aiding them in it.

    Similarly the media owes some accountability for recklessly spreading this when it is well known we live in a place and time where death threats and anti-white hatred will be the response.

    I am 1/4th Scotch-Irish, and 3/4ths German. I am also the 9th generation in my family to live in my part of rural PA. My family, thanks be to God, is much more rooted than most Americans. I may have to move away someday, though.

    My blood is pretty much the standard for a rural south-central Pennsylvanian.

    There were three main waves of immigrants into the rural agricultural parts of Pennsylvania: the Scotch-Irish; followed about the same time or slightly later by various German-speaking groups; followed in the 1800s by a second and distinct German migration. The second wave of German immigrants, which was the largest across America, was more broadly taken from throughout Germany, whereas the first group was – the true Pennsylvania Dutch – were from the southwest of Germany. There were sprinklings of English around here too. The industrial areas of PA got vastly different ethnic groups, of course.

    The Scotch-Irish here are totally assimilated into Pennsylvania culture.

    The difference is that Pennsylvania culture isn’t liberal WASP New England culture.

    I don’t know enough off the top of my head to examine this distinction further.

    However! I do think there are/were FAR less Scotch-Irish in New England, historically, than there were/are in the South and Midwest. The single largest port of entry for Scotch-Irish was Philadelphia, followed by New York and the Southern ports, with Boston/New England WAAAAAAY behind.

    There are a number of people, foreign and domestic, who like to fan the flames of division.

    Who cares?

    These people are not the problem. The problem is that liberals crave this stuff, demand it and bathe in it.

    This wasn’t some clever super-duper forgery. They just whacked off the leading context of the video and shipped it. There wasn’t even anything objectionable in the viral video. Even if you believed the worse possible context–the kids “surrounded” the Indians–you’d think, “Ok teenagers. Their school and parents should have a talk with them about both polite behavior and the wisdom of steering clear of activist loons and potential confrontations.” But that was not the reaction of liberals. It was mindless hysteria and hate.

    That’s the problem. Not people “sowing division”. Not “the Russians”. Nope, the problem is the hatred of American elites for regular white Americans. They are the problem. No one else is to blame.

  176. One of the first posts here really encapsulated the iSteve worldview in that they’ve “long had suspicions” about the left wing bias of the press. Whoa! NOW they’re realising that the press is a propaganda organ of the Left.

    Many of you guys don’t get it, talking about voting and “sue them” and so on. You literally just lived through an election where a statistically impossible numbers of elections flipped in one direction based off of boxes of ballots being “discovered” on a daily basis. You have a court system that gave a dude trying to escape from an armed mob a 400+ year sentence because a morbidly obese woman had a heart attack, while a guy who attacked a Trump supporter with a bike lock and nearly killed him got time served. That’s just one example.

    Some of you, host included, are hard wired to your 70s version of politics where you think if you just GOTV a little harder you’ll win the war. Ha!

    Not saying its time to clean the guns and go full Brevik, but some candid discussion of where we are going versus this whistling past the graveyard so many of you are doing would be appreciated. You think winning an election is going to walk back us back as a nation from the ledge where multiple well know personalities were calling for violence against children?

    Jenner, what you say is true and sobering, as usual. But I think you’re avoiding Jack’s point. The goal is not conversion of the enemy, but marginalization.

    Leftists are mostly pussies, but since 2008 they’ve been emboldened by a belief that they have become numerically superior in America. With perceived numbers on their side, and thus (in a mass society) a measure of invulnerability, they’ve gone the route of all weak people who suddenly find themselves with unmerited power: they’ve become martinets and bullies.

    The true believers and drivers on the Left are still not numerically a majority (at least that’s my impression). But the trouble is that most regular people are mere followers and easily cowed into submission and acquiescence, so they go along with whoever is dominant in the culture. For most of them, it was only the advent of Trump that clued them into the fact that there were people who were willing to say “F-you” to the Left.

    Our side needs to detach enough of those “followers” from the Left, capture them for our own side, and (this is key) re-jigger the system to permanently diminish and weaken the fringers. That’s going to be difficult, and possibly futile at this point. But I pray it’s within the realm of possibility—and events like this weekend’s fiasco are a glimmer of hope that some “followers” are waking up.

    Caitlin Flanagan of The Atlantic is a Tom Wolfe fan … or an iSteve lurker:

    The full video reveals that these kids had wandered into a Tom Wolfe novel and had no idea how to get out of it.

    She writes 3,500 words on the Covington incident, sympathetic to the students, having watched all the video, including a newly released 2-hour video from the Black Hebrew Israelites.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/01/media-must-learn-covington-catholic-story/581035/

    [The new video] includes a long, interesting passage, in which the Covington Catholic boys engage in a mostly thoughtful conversation with the Black Hebrew Israelite preacher. Throughout the conversation, they disrespect him only once—to boo him when he says something vile about gays and lesbians.

    She wraps up by throwing the New York Times under the bus:

    How could the elite media—The New York Times, let’s say—have protected themselves from this event, which has served to reinforce millions of Americans’ belief that traditional journalistic outlets are purveyors of “fake news”? They might have hewed to a concept that once went by the quaint term “journalistic ethics.” Among other things, journalistic ethics held that if you didn’t have the reporting to support a story, and if that story had the potential to hurt its subjects, and if those subjects were private citizens, and if they were moreover minors, you didn’t run the story. You kept reporting it; you let yourself get scooped; and you accepted that speed is not the highest value. Otherwise, you were the trash press.

    At 8:30 yesterday morning, as I was typing this essay, The New York Times emailed me. The subject line was “Ethics Reminders for Freelance Journalists.” (I have occasionally published essays and reviews in the Times). It informed me, inter alia, that the Times expected all of its journalists, both freelance and staff, “to protect the integrity and credibility of Times journalism.” This meant, in part, safeguarding the Times’ “reputation for fairness and impartiality.”

    I am prompted to issue my own ethics reminders for The New York Times. Here they are: You were partly responsible for the election of Trump because you are the most influential newspaper in the country, and you are not fair or impartial. Millions of Americans believe you hate them and that you will causally harm them. Two years ago, they fought back against you, and they won. If Trump wins again, you will once again have played a small but important role in that victory.

  193. Off-topic but probably more relevant than anything else in the news today. Should any benighted HBDers still be under the impression that genetics is poised to advance the cause of race-essentialism with Real Science!™, you may wish to think again. For now we have the prospect of AeroMexico offering fare discounts for passengers based on their percentage of “Mexican” DNA.

    AeroMexico’s DNA Discounts: How to Fly High on your Mexican DNA.

    So far this particular ad campaign had not generated much of a response, but it is a harbinger of things to come. To the extent that genetics is ever accepted into the mainstream, it will simply become another token in the game of petty political maneuvering that characterizes the modern social landscape. Corporations, interest groups, victimology mongers, and snake oil salesmen of whatever description can play the DNA game just as easily as they currently play the social justice game, and they will be able to function quite well in this new regime simply by changing their vocabulary and their costume, all while their purpose remains the same. The widespread availability of cheap genetic testing will one day prove to have been a great gift to the racial grievance industry and its menagerie of reparation-clamorers and narrative-based welfare moochers. A future wherein an already bloated and all-powerful HR bureaucracy maintains its own internal DNA department is not out of the realm of possibility.

    Of course, none of this is actual science. Genetics as it is presently understood is a sort of materialist-mysticism not unlike the spiritualism of the Edwardian Age, and will one day come to be seen every bit as riddled with philosophical dilettantism and pedestrian perversity as the latter. As a homologous structure, cultural expression, and body-constituent of the times, HBD is also entirely “Current Year” ; the mirror of SJWism—i.e. abstruse in its academic expression and corrosive in its practical results—and a fitting exemplar of the fin de siècle inanities that portend the passing of an era.

    Why? Where else would you go that is not undergoing a similar rot? Besides, there are well over 100 million whites in the USA who disagree with the way things are going, and we are the most heavily armed civilian population in the history of the world. It would seem silly to just abandon the place. In fact Whites in America have a better chance at surviving than most other Whites simply because of our numbers and the 2nd Amendment that other Whites lack.

    What we are seeing now is essentially a one-sided cold war in which the other side has gotten a free ride due to the overwhelming majority of American Whites who believe in the founding principles. Therefore, we have played by rules that the Left long ago abandoned. We are slowly figuring this out.

    We also are slowly figuring out that the Left derives most of its power through us. It is our reaction that gives them power. They have crafted words and concepts like ‘racism’ and ‘white privilege’ to use against us, and we willingly submit to those charges. We have yet to collectively tell them to fu*k off, or even to use our enormous economic clout to bring down companies who push the Leftist line. So long as we play by their rules, we lose. So long as we feed globo-homo with our dollars, we lose. It’s that simple.

    It did not help matters that the Japanese had crushed the myth of British invincibility quite thoroughly.

    How it came to pass that the Japanese, up to then doing the pirates’ bidding in Asia turned upon their erstwhile British friends and military suppliers is yet another ignored but highly interesting story.

    I agree. Race is a tool. (It can perfectly well be a tool even if you are a realist about racial difference, and even if you are a realist about the fact that many powerful Jews actually do work together, on some level, in ways that undermine the broader society in which they live).
    Race agitators are tools. “Conniving Jews” are tools. Even “money grubbing” capitalists are tools. What ultimately drives things is the hint of sexual license. It is rarely realized. It is NEVER fully realized. But if religion recedes, and especially Christianity, which seems to promise a place in the concrete world, and in eternity, for humans as physical and creative and productive beings, the drive for such things becomes, quite easily, a drive for unlicensed sexuality. If that possibility disappears, life will appear meaningless.

    Harvey Weinstein can f*** all the starlets if he supports “the right to choose”. Bill Clinton can stick it where he wants. Nobody hates the “good” white men, the powerful white men, the white men who can make women feel like they really exist. ALL women like them. (Well, not really, but…)

    Here is an interesting angle on the Battle of the Lincoln Memorial (no one really seems to have put forth a good name for the thing…): has anyone considered the idea that ALL participants might actually be in agreement on something they each regard as DEEPLY important and on which society objects?
    We know what the Covington boys think about killing babies? Yeah, maybe they are “brainwashed” and wanted to “be boys” and have a fun outing, but I suspect the vast majority of them would love to meet a nice girl and repeatedly impregnate her and have many children.
    What about the Black Hebrews? I have no citations, but I am quite confident that they would regard killing black children as an abomination foisted on them by whitey. I bet all of them would gladly leave the street preaching in a moment if they had black women who were inclined towards their brand of myth-making, and would take it is an injunction and rationale to make babies.
    And what of “Elder” Phillips? He is trying to play the media game, and who knows what he might have been quoted saying somewhere, but he clearly just makes sh*t up. Does anyone really doubt that inwardly he feels some genuine pull towards some authentic Indian life, and would find the killing of Indian babies some abomination crafted by the white man?

    So… a clash between whites and blacks and Indians, all of whom inwardly yearn to raise children with real women… who benefits? Perhaps the guys who think they have a fighting chance to pump and dump the hottest sluts, and to realize whatever even more perverse sexual desires lurk within.

    Yes, white men are the enemy. But that is because white men have historically been the best at constructing and fighting for an alternative. And everyone kind of knows this.

    I see. And I agree – with one little caveat: You’re right Bacon, Simmons, Officer Camacho, Silk etc. are prototypes of our societies.
    My caveat: That’s what novels are about – since ages: To create characters, which allow the reader to understand and feel even – better what’s going on.
    My caveat: That is what modern literature is all about – and there is basically no difference between – Thomas Manns Felix Krull and Balzac’s Lucien Chardon in Lost IllusionsThe Human Comedy.
    Tom Wolfe was right: The Postmodern novel is the modern novel – is the novel…

    The career of the expression postmodernity is in itself – in its inner unnecessity and intellectual superficiality and hollowness and pompousness – just one more example for the human comedy.

    (If one thinks of Sterne (or Jean Paul as the most advanced German writer of the 18th/19th century) there is not a single aspect of the supposedly postmodern novel, that – Jean Paul especially – would not have shown already (not to mention the Fatrasien of the French middle ages – – – ).

    Remember Kavanaugh and “High School Never Ends (Part Leventy Seven)”?

    I saw this today and realized I’d seen several tweets to the effect of “I was triggered, that exact guy was in my high/middle school!” relating to MAGA kid.

    The most insidious bully in my junior high wasn’t someone who stuffed smaller kids in lockers, but a smaller kid himself: slender, handsome, with a last name that appeared on a big building in town. What he would do, mostly, was stare. Stare and smile, and walk very close to his less-rich, less-handsome targets. Not touching, but close enough to show that he could have touched them if he wanted to.

    Complaining to adults was useless, because he insisted he wasn’t doing anything, and teachers — reading the letter of the school handbook rather than the spirit — were forced to agree.

    And it’s funny, how awful “not doing anything” can feel to the person it’s not being done to. How infuriating or unsettling.

    It’s funny, what a slender rich kid’s vehement denial can do to your mind-set: Maybe he wasn’t doing anything. Maybe he was just smiling. Maybe he was just smiling even when you made it clear you were trying to pass, and you were on the verge of tears? Maybe he was trying to defuse the situation, and you’re the one who was crazy.

    I’ll re-phrase at least that last:

    If things come to a serious contest, the Left is toast. The Left are fools to rely on violence; it’s the one area where they can’t compete.

    Still, the basic question right now is: Who are the American people?

    The “proposition nation” view holds that the American People are those who best hold the American ideals. These ideals are said to be Counter-Enlightenment Postmodernist ideals, so immigrants are the real American people, along with any other group that has been oppressed by the “historical nation” America.

    The “historical nation” view holds that it is those who established and maintain the historical American system that are the real Americans. Right now, that’s the rural American blue collars, the people who elected Trump.

    The two sides hold different real estate, with the “proposition nation” holding the cities and (with some large exceptions, such as California) the “historical nation” holding the countryside.

    If you say that America is a proposition nation, then you imply that Trump lacks the confidence of the American people. If you say that American is an “historical nation”, then Trump is the President.

    The Electoral College was a political kludge, no question, _but_ there is reality behind it:
    Holding territory is important. Democracies are one of many ways to stabilize government given multiple interests. It is a substitute for and preventative of civil war. Therefore, it has to (in some way) be a war game that estimates the outcome of a civil war, should one occur at election time. In the context of warfare territory matters, so the Electoral College has included territory in the selection process.

    As I keep repeating, war doesn’t determine who is right, it determines who is left. The answer to the question “Who are the real American people?” will be determined by who is left in the US in a Century’s time. Right now, I’d say that nobody is the real American people — we just have (at least) two contending groups.

    And I have to watch my responses. I’m getting to be like an animal with a toothache. It was your implication that Trump’s selection by the Electoral College rather than the popular vote meant that Trump hadn’t been elected by the American people that drew my response. I apologize for any unintentional insult or emotional effect my post might have been responsible for.

    Right. We’re in a fight, and we want to be the ones left when it’s over.
    The question is how?
    I’m more of an analyst than a tactician. I can talk about alternative ways things might break and that’s it. I did recommend that Trump use various executive orders, as did Obama. I can also see that his choice might be correct — he’s giving the Democratic White leadership enough time to
    a) discredit themselves with the general population (for assuming dictatorial powers) and
    b) to discredit themselves with their coalition members (by not winning quickly).
    Once democracy has been shown to be a farce, Trump can sign executive orders as he pleases. Wilson and FDR both did something very similar — during wartime it was assumed that democracy and law had to be set aside (“Inter arma enim silent leges”, in Latin). If democracy is a farce, that’s also an emergency, and we revert to the old Roman Dictator pattern: call in some respected old guy to set things right and restore justice. Old guy to limit the amount of damage he can do if he doesn’t work out.

    But oh, the damage done.

    The United States is a racist country. The racism is systemic. Due to the “imbalance in power,” all white people are, and must be, racist, and no non-white person is, or can be, racist.

    All aspects of white culture, history, etc., are racist and must be anathematized and destroyed. All aspects of non-white culture must be celebrated and revered.

    In any confrontation between a white person and non-white person, the white person must show guilt, shame and deference. Anything less is grounds for the destruction of the white person’s reputation, ability to make a living, family, etc.

    Yes. This is little known in part because the British government suppressed the story at the time. During the war, some captured Indian Army troops went over to the other side and fought against the British on behalf of the Germans or Japanese. The politics of the time were such that the British were not able to punish these folks as traitors when the war was over, even though they were.

    Cold War politics also came into play – some of the mutineers who were enlisted in the Royal Navy were Communists who had been recruited during the war. Since Britain was allied with Stalin they were glad to fight for the cause. Once the war was over, they saw no reason to continue to support the British and were encouraged by their Communist masters to overthrow the colonialists. The Soviets were very active backers of anti-Colonialism which they (rightly) saw as a way of weakening the Western powers, especially Britain. Independent India had a very close relationship with the USSR but their elite was Fabian Socialist rather than full blown Communist. Even being Fabian Socialist was enough to cripple their economy for decades.

    Who knows what wins people over or changes history? What seems obvious later seems impossible in the moment.

    Take France and North America. The French could have been the dominant force in the Americas, and then, maybe, 20th century would have been the Franco-American Century. What made the difference and prevented such outcome? The distinct settlement polices of Anglo-American colonies and Franco-American/Canadian colonies. There was more freedom, opportunities, and incentives for ordinary people of Britain to try their luck in the New Land. It was easier for men and women to make the journey together, to own land, and have property rights. The English Monarch had less control over what happened in the colonies. In contrast, the Absolute Monarch of France oversaw the New World policy. So, by the time of the French and Indian War, Anglo-Colonies had 18x the population as the French colonies. But imagine if the French had sent just as many people. The French and Indian War was mostly decided by French troops vs British troops, but the British had more support in man and material from the colonists. The French not so much, which is why they had to rely so much on unreliable Indians.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_and_Indian_War

    The French and Indian War (1754–1763) pitted the colonies of British America against those of New France, each side supported by military units from the parent country and by American Indian allies. At the start of the war, the French colonies had a population of roughly 60,000 settlers, compared with 2 million in the British colonies.[4] The outnumbered French particularly depended on the Indians.

    Just think. Despite being outnumbered by such a huge margin, the French almost won. The war dragged on for 9 yrs. It is a war the French could have won if they had more settlers. Also, consider that France didn’t just claim Canada but the Louisiana Territory. America could have been mostly a French Colony, with Anglos limited to East Coast of America.
    Now, I’m thinking that some French elites noticed the problem, i.e. that the Anglo colonies were filling up much faster than the French ones. I’m sure they foresaw doom unless the French could send more people to fill up Canada and the Louisiana Territory. Demography is Destiny. Yet, why did they fail to make the case? Why did most elites not raise the issue with the French Monarch? Because the socio-political implications of such shift in settlement policy were huge. It would have undermined Absolutism that came to define the French Monarchy(and which ironically passed onto even the Revolutionaries and Napoleon). Most people are so deathly afraid of ‘triggering’ the power. It’s like everyone in Akira Kurosawa’s RAN knows the lord made a rash decision in suddenly handing power to the not-too-bright first son, but most just bow their heads and obey. Only the youngest son and an adviser dissent, but they are soon banished for daring to speak the truth. EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES pretty much sums up the psychology of power. Of course, the Iron Consensus could involve the masses as well as most people are so easy to manipulate. Mark Anthony turns the masses from denouncing Caesar to avenging him with a single speech. Americans went from strongly anti-‘gay marriage’ to strongly pro-‘gay marriage’ in a generation due to Media Barrage. Toohey understood in THE FOUNTAINHEAD. While those on top concoct the ‘truth’, it becomes even ‘truer’ if the unthinking masses are made to feel passionate about it through emotional and moralistic manipulation.

    But if the French had opted for a revised strategy, they could have taken most of North America. Its vast riches could have favored France over Britain. Also, the great prestige of having prevailed over the Brits in the New World would have been a great boost to the French Monarchy, and there may never have been a French Revolution.
    Looking back, it was so obvious what prevented the French from dominating the New World. But, for the most part, the issue went unmentioned within the French Court because the Monarch was the sun and the French people were his subjects, not individuals with rights.
    The power of consensus and fear of taboo determine so much of history. It is only much later, among people unhampered by the same consensus and taboos, that the truth becomes so obvious and can be discussed freely. Of course, people of the future will be hampered by their own forms of unanimity and heresy.

    Now, consider the famous case of Japan in its buildup to the Pacific War. Looking back, it was so obvious what would happen if Japan provoked the US. In his book MODERN TIMES, Paul Johnson wrote of how so many Japanese KNEW but marched to sure doom due to the power of consensus, fear of taboo, and the cult of purity & honor. The militarist mindset carried over from samurai times disdained any show of weakness, which increasingly became a taboo. Japanese prefer unity over dissension. Also, there was the purity cult that held that it was more honorable to fight and die with pride than concede and lose face. If Germany’s madness was driven by Hitler at the top, Japan’s madness was driven, at least in part, by pressure from below. Unlike American, European, or Soviet officers whose duty was to obey orders from above, many junior officers in Japan felt they had a higher loyalty to the Emperor or what he ‘really’ stood for. So, unlike Western officers, these junior officers were willing to assassinate higher officers who seemed weak and face execution in the name of honor. Much like the 47 Ronin Legend. Noble self-sacrifice. Rebelling in the name of higher loyalty to Emperor and nation. This had a terrifying effect on the elites whose conception of Modern Japan rested so much on themes of pride and honor. In the West, junior officers could be controlled with threat of court martial or execution. Also, popular opinion would not have been on the side of rogue officers. But the fanatical junior officers of Japan were willing to commit acts of terror and face death in the name of honor. And there was something in Japanese popular sentiment that appreciated such acts based on purity of devotion. (Ian Buruma wrote of how even Leftist Japanese media were disappointed with students who pledged to give their lives for the cause but then surrendered to the police. They were lacking in pure spirit. Seijun Suzuki’s FIGHTING ELEGY offered a glimpse into the mindset where even hooliganism can be redemptive if done with true spirit.)

    Looking back, it seems so obvious what Japan should have done. It would have done better to take the US offer of keeping Manchuria, Korea, and Taiwan in exchange for ending the embargo. But the psycho-political climate was such that few dared to even make such suggestion.

    Another famous case is, of course, Soviet Union on the eve of German invasion. For so many in Soviet intelligence, it was becoming obvious that the Germans were planning something big. Some dissident historians argue that FDR knew Japan was going to attack and eagerly anticipated it. But Stalin certainly didn’t want an attack and refused to believe it. But the evidence was mounting, and some in Soviet intelligence informed Stalin. But what happened to them? They got sent to the Gulag or executed as saboteurs or spies. But then, the Soviet system had already created a climate of fear where it was dangerous to tell Stalin anything he didn’t want to hear. It was Purge Nation. Looking back, it’s obvious what the Soviets should have done, but so much went undone simply because of power of consensus(emanating from Stalin) and fear of taboo.
    And the horrors of the Great Leap Forward could have been lessened if Mao had been informed of its early setbacks. But he was only fed false news because of the climate of Mao adulation and fear of displeasing him. Things began to change only when conditions got so bad that real reports trickled into Mao’s office. Then, he had to plead with his subordinates to tell him the truth because they were so fearful of ‘triggering’ him. But by then, millions upon millions had already died.

    Or consider the American Civil War. It could have been avoided if the South had seen eye to eye with Abraham Lincoln who was so right about slavery and the black problem. Given America’s founding principles of freedom and liberty, slavery could only be a stain on America. Also, due to racial differences, the future of whites could be deeply compromised if the races didn’t separate. If the South had understood this and came to terms with Lincoln with some agreement to phase out slavery and work towards real racial separation, the horrible war and all its dark racial consequences could have been avoided. But the South seceded to maintain an immoral institution. It was also blinded by its neo-aristocratic romanticism of warrior spirit. Looking back, it seems so obvious what should have been said and done. But people back then were intoxicated with their own sense of honor, pride, and glory.
    Whites had another chance in the Age of Jack Johnson. Here was a black guy whupping all the white guys in three continents — US, Europe, Australia — and sexually conquering white women. It was obvious that blacks posed an ‘idolic’ threat to white males, and its implications on everything from sports to sex to school thuggery to street violence were so obvious. Based on racial facts of the case, white males could have made a moral argument for separation, i.e. blacks pose a real threat to whites. But white males had too much pride and honor riding on the issue. They sought the Great White Hope and when Jess Willard finally defeated the washed-out Jack Johnson(in what was still a grueling fight), white guys just assured themselves that they are on top again. This fact of black-white racial differences should be obvious by now, but it STILL cannot be honestly discussed(due to new set of taboos centered around ‘white guilt’). Because America wasn’t PC in the period of Jack Johnson, a time when talk of race was fair game, an honest debate on the Black Threat could have made honestly, compellingly, and morally back then. Whites missed their chance. Now, what with the neo-spiritual power of PC and Negro-Worship, it is more difficult than ever. Currently, only one side of the Jack Johnson narrative is allowed: He triumphed over white bigotry and contempt. That’s true enough as he had to prove his mettle in a culture that looked down on his kind. But there is another side to the story that has far greater repercussions for whites in both America and Europe, but no one dares mention it. Black manhood destroys and cucks white manhood, and no race can survive for long as a free people without pride of manhood. Look at browns in Latin America. Permanently conquered and denied pride of manhood, they are a defeated and browbeaten people.

    And of course, so much of the madness since the End of the Cold War could have been avoided IF people admitted that Jews are the new ruling elites of America. Maybe they earned the right to rule with smarts and hard work. Still, power is easily corrupted and abused, and its true character must be called out. The fact is top power in the US is very Jewish and very much geared to Jewish and Zionist interest. Jews being for Jews or Israel is not a problem per se, but it is a problem when Jews use the manpower and resources of a nation that is 98% goyim to push forth policies that narrowly favor what amounts to Jewish supremacism: Russia in 90s, Middle East conflicts, Israel-Palestine policy, rules on free speech(such as anti-BDS laws), promotion of Homomania(which is really proxy of Jewish minority elite privilege), and Victim Supremacism(that becomes a new nihilism as Jews, as the People of Holocaust, the biggest victims of all history, justify everything they do in terms of destroying New Nazis who are apparently everywhere: Putin, Assad, Iranian rulers, Trump, MAGA hat kid, etc.)
    Maybe one day, when the American system has collapsed, another civilization will study American History without its particular pressures of consensus & taboo and expound on the Obvious and what should have been done to prevent disaster upon disaster. But we are living In-the-Moment in American History when the power of consensus and fear of taboo make it nearly impossible to speak the obvious. It is a Moment when not only James D. Watson but even officially sanctioned figures like David Reich come under threat by either fanatics of PC(the teachers pets or the system’s attack dogs) or cynics of supremacism(usually elites who know the truth among themselves but figure it’s too ‘dangerous’ for the people and common discourse). Because most of the elites are players than leaders and because they were allowed into upper ranks for holding certain ‘correct’ views, they just parrot the party line to keep their prized position and privilege.

    There’s a scene in 13th WARRIOR where the guy quotes the Koran: “For all we ought to have thought but have not thought, for all we ought to have said but haven’t said, all we ought to have done but have not done…” That sums up so much about why history ended up the way it did and why it will never be what it should be.

    The dangers of thinking only in terms of short-term profits…..

    The war in North America officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris on 10 February 1763, and war in the European theater was settled by the Treaty of Hubertusburg on 15 February 1763. The British offered France the choice of surrendering either its continental North American possessions east of the Mississippi or the Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, which had been occupied by the British. France chose to cede the former but was able to negotiate the retention of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, two small islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, along with fishing rights in the area. They viewed the economic value of the Caribbean islands’ sugar cane to be greater and easier to defend than the furs from the continent. French philosopher Voltaire referred to Canada disparagingly as nothing more than a few acres of snow. The British, however, were happy to take New France, as defence of their North American colonies would no longer be an issue; they also had ample places from which to obtain sugar. Spain traded Florida to Britain in order to regain Cuba, but they also gained Louisiana from France, including New Orleans, in compensation for their losses. Great Britain and Spain also agreed that navigation on the Mississippi River was to be open to vessels of all nations.[68]

    Incidents such as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown are sort of a National Shit Test to see how people react. Had George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson only allowed themselves to be assaulted, there would not have been any issue (except for them) and the world would have gone on turning. White liberals in particular seem to by hyper-afraid of saying or doing anything that might offend minorities. The problem is that when things like this happen, their side is mobilized whether they believe in the cause or not or are acting out of cowardliness. It makes them take a public stand even when they would prefer not. Most liberals would probably be happier to be left alone but there has to be these public roll calls periodically to prevent backsliding.

    Geography is destiny – even now the US has 10x the population of Canada. The British had the 13 colonies, possessed of a temperate climate and well suited for farming, especially of high value products such as tobacco, cotton, indigo, rice, etc. The French had the frozen wastes of the north and the malarial swamps of Louisiana.

    The French Crown tried to encourage colonization but they just couldn’t get a lot of people who were interested. The main economically viable activity was fur trapping and the land has a limited carrying capacity for trappers before you have caught every single beaver. Nor is the nomadic trapping lifestyle conducive to family formation.

    The British were willing to let all sorts of religious crazies have their own colonies. The French didn’t have that many crazies (they had already gotten rid of the Huguenots) and it was unthinkable to them to give their religious enemies their own colonies anyway, or any degree of self-government. France has been a centrally ruled nation for centuries – even today their remaining colonies are considered departements and are ruled from Paris like any other region.

    Nor is it accurate to say that the “historical nation” no longer believes in the proposition. I would say that Washington sums up the “proposition” in his letter to the Jews of Newport, RI

    It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights, for, happily, the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.

    You’ll notice however that this is a two side bargain – “historical” American agree to accept people of other faiths and ethnicities so long as they are willing to cast their lot with America unconditionally “on all occasions”.

    Now there are some in the “historical nation” who say “they all have to go back” but most heartland Americans I think still buy into this. What they object to is to people who take but don’t give back. They take jobs from Americans, but march around with the Mexican flag. Etc.

    Describing some public utterance as a dog whistle can be (not always) a tactic to discredit the plain sense of what has been said.

    For example, if Trump says at a rally in the Rust Belt that the country is being run by globalists “who do not have your best interests at heart”, then he is sending out a dog whistle to the people that Jews are to blame for their economic troubles. He’s stirring up hatred, for political gain.

    Therefore what he said wasn’t meant sincerely, or true; it was just (in fact) anti Semitic manipulation. So he’s discredited, and his listeners are too for agreeing with him, and any person of sound intelligence and good will will understand that what he just said is wrong and bad. What a lot of stupid bigots they must be. What a demagogue he is.

    That’s a real example.

    Because anyone at the rally could have seen, if they’d really given the matter some thought, that the people who are running the country really do have their —the Rust Belt people’s— best interests at heart.

    In response to the first question, what I meant was that “sex”, broadly speaking, even if rarely realized in the imagined form, ends up being what gives meaning to life for people who otherwise perceive the world in a desacralized and materialistic form. This, I think, is why many SJWs fight SO hard. No doubt many get a rush from the groupthink and all, and SJWism per se is a sort of religion. But the idea of sexual self-realization as at the core of it is rarely articulated, NOT even in the promulgation of all the variants of LGBTism.

    Obviously, not all those who profess to be atheists, agnostics, etc, act in such ways, but my own suspicion is that most who give any credence to the idea of any sort of sexual morality are actively adhering to moral habits inculcated via ancestors in recent memory who were themselves religious in some real sense. Or else they are following “atheistic” philosophies, such as Stoicism in some form, that end up being religious in a way not always articulated.

    As for the second question, what I meant was that white men have been most successful in crafting alternatives to might-makes-right societies fueled by uninhibited sexuality. The Socrates-Plato-Aristotle nexus in Athens was in part such an effort (and so also the various ancient philosophies that drew from them). But then Christian culture (which incorporated much of Greek philosophy), forged an alternative to the sex-and-power depravities of the Roman empire.

    The whole point of identity politics is to make sure that wealth does not get seized. The whole point of it is to distract everyone with irrelevant nonsense like the Pronoun Wars and Black Lives Matter so that the rich can enjoy their wealth in peace and security.

    Uh, nope. The whole point of identity politics is for one identity group to smash rival identity groups.

    Just try for a moment seeing things from the point of view of the elite. They’re the people with all the power and money. What are they going to want more than anything else in the world? Obviously, to hold on to their power and money. Not just as individuals but as a class. Because everybody they know, their family members, the people they went to Yale with, the friends they made when they interned at Goldman Sachs, every single person they know – they’re all fellow members of the elite.

    What they’re going to be most worried about is that the people without the power and money will decide they’d like to have their share. The people without the power and money might decide to line the members of the elite up against a wall and shoot them.

    So how do you prevent that? Very simple. You make sure the have-nots are divided amongst themselves. You make sure that poor whites and poor blacks are at each other’s throats, and that poor whites and poor hispanics are at each other’s throats. You make sure that the big political issues of the day are which pronouns to use, and transexual bathroom rights. Because that means that uncomfortable issues (like economic inequality and unaffordable housing) are kept off the political agenda.

    So what do you do? You invent identity politics. And you fund it generously.

    It did not help matters that the Japanese had crushed the myth of British invincibility quite thoroughly.

    That’s what ended the British Empire.

    How it came to pass that the Japanese, up to then doing the pirates’ bidding in Asia turned upon their erstwhile British friends and military suppliers is yet another ignored but highly interesting story. The British have numerous reasons to rethink their view of Churchill and his contemporaries, this being one of them.

    The Japanese did not turn on the British. The British turned on the Japanese by abandoning the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. They did that at the insistence of the Americans. One of the main objectives of American foreign policy from the First World War right up to the late 1950s was the destruction of the British Empire. It was one of their key war aims in WW2. To the U.S. Britain was a rival that needed to be destroyed.

    The answer is, we need a war. I don’t care how bad war is. The only thing that will lance this boil and let the puss run out is a civil war. The left will start it, like John Brown’s raid. We should encourage them to start it. Give them ammunition to hate us. Let them start it.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Their side has the numbers, it has the military, it has the surveillance state, it has the police, it has the media, it has the corporate sector, it has the bureaucracy. What exactly have you got? OK, you’ve got Pepe the Frog. Do you think that will be enough?

    Stop obsessing about race. Address issues that really matter to people, like housing and jobs.

    Accept that the elites really are waging a class war and emphasise that. Emphasise that the elites are the enemy of everybody else, regardless of race. Focus on the enemies that ordinary people really hate – the bankers and the billionaires.

    Use economic and environmental arguments against immigration rather than racial ones. Emphasise that immigration is all about deriving wages down. Emphasise that immigration leads to the destruction of the cultures of both the existing population and the immigrants.

    Emphasise that the culture war was launched by the elites purely to serve their own class interests. The elites never did believe in any of this social justice nonsense. They destroyed society in order to demoralise and divide the population.

    Emphasise that the people who have lost most from the destruction of family life and the collapse of moral values are the working class and the poor. Emphasise that the culture war has to be undone because it has ruined the lives of ordinary people.

    Drop loser issues like HBD. Don’t use terms like white genocide – it just makes the person using it sound like a nut to ordinary people.

    Emphasise that you’re not anti-refugee, you just believe that the best way to help refugees is to help them in their own countries, which means helping to rebuild their countries rather than bombing them.

    Emphasise that you respect all cultures, which is why you’re anti-immigration. Immigration is cultural genocide. Other cultures can only survive in their own countries.

    The French were right, perhaps not about the inherent values of the lands, but about the more important question whether those lands could be effectively retained (and any land, be it ever so valuable, is only so to he who retains it…).

    I’m defining the terms of the debate (as I see them), without saying whether they are right or wrong.

    The Left does use the word “proposition” without believing that either logic or reality are more than tools of oppression, hence do not understand “proposition” as an Enlightenment person would. The Left’s goal is not to make a logical statement that can be used to settle differences, but to attack you (and me) personally by distracting us with talk while they act.

    One of the standard tactics has (in my experience) to change the logical structure of Leftist statements. This confuses and delays Enlightenment members, who think that the logical structure of such statements is important.

    So: I was providing a description from an Enlightenment perspective. From the Left’s perspective, it goes like this?

    Enlightenment statement:
    Left statement:

    The above cycle is endlessly repeated.

    I’m just maintaining that the people who have possession of a territory are the real inhabitants of that territory _in the sense that_ if go travel to that territory and interact with the people who are really there there, you will be acting with the real inhabitants of the area.

    For example, if you go to Southern Spain, the “real” inhabitants are Homo Sapiens, not neanderthals.

  363. @Jack D

    Nor is it accurate to say that the “historical nation” no longer believes in the proposition.

    The historical nation is getting pretty tired of the proposition nation. The “proposition nation” is generally interpreted by the Left and in Federal practice as: “Immigrants are _more_ American than the people born in the US, because the immigrants acted on the proposition by _coming to the USA_, whereas the people born her did not. Therefore, in conflicts between those born in the United States and those who have immigrated here, the immigrant shall prevail.”
    Is rejecting the proposition throwing out the baby with the bathwater? Well, maybe. But, as I’ve said above, being treated like a conquered enemy gets old fast.

    Benjamin Franklin had some notions about the British Empire that could have averted the ’76 troubles….

    Even with independence, the Anglo nature of Anglo-America proved to be rather advantageous to Britain in WWI and WWII:

    When asked what was the greatest political fact of modern times, Bismarck is reported to have responded, that it was “the inherited and permanent fact that North America speaks English.” Whether the saying be authentic or not, the remark is certainly worthy of its reputed author’s keen insight into political fundamentals.

    How are you defining “the elites”? What is their motivation? What are their objectives? “Class interests” is too vague.

    The motivation is to make sure there’s no discussion of economic inequality or the obscene wealth of the billionaires or the power of the bankers, or the fact that immigration keeps wage levels low, or the fact that ordinary people cannot afford decent housing.

    The motivation is to keep actual economic issues off the political agenda. The motivation is keep politics out of politics. Politics becomes identity politics which is actually anti-politics. They don’t want us to notice that all the major political parties are on the same side, the side of the elites, and all pursue the same economic policies. There is no politics. It’s merely for show. And that’s how the elites intend to keep things.

    The elites hate Trump because he has dared to put economic issues like trade on the political agenda. That’s the entire reason they hate him. In fact of course Trump lacks either the ability or the will to actually achieve anything but that doesn’t matter. He has mentioned forbidden topics like trade and the destruction of the manufacturing sector. But they can’t criticise him for this because that would attract more attention to these issues, so they pretend to hate him for being an evil sexist racist Nazi.

    The point is not to control the Megaphone. The point is to control the Megaphone so you control the political agenda and decide what gets discussed and what doesn’t.

    French colonial policy was a great success. This only makes no sense if you assume colonies can only exist outside of Europe. In fact France (like China) has been expanding into the territory of neighboring states for a thousand years. Most of what is now eastern France, and also parts of southern and northern France, used to belong to foreign countries. French settlers who refused to go live in the frozen wastes of Canada were very happy to go live in Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. And the French government was also very happy to sacrifice overseas territories to enlarge metropolitan France.

    Britain was a Great Power in 1939. In the postwar period they were at best a second-rate power.

    In 1939 their economy was doing so-so. By 1945 they were broke.

    In 1939 they could go into shops and buy stuff. After the war they had rationing until 1954.

    And they were forced to give up their Empire. No matter how much you despise that empire to Britain losing it was a national humiliation.

    They failed to achieve their political objectives. They did not save Poland, and they did not save their own position as a Great Power.

    If that’s what winning a war looks like I hope I never win one.

    Britain got bled dry by its beloved American cousins.

    Although oddly enough it made America rich.

    The U.S. got rich, while the Russians did most of the hard fighting. The Soviets still got something out of it, so you can say they won. The U.S. definitely won. The poor old Brits got nothing.

    Don’t get me wrong. I don’t care that the British lost. I’m not British. I was just pointing out that they did lose. They really have nobody but themselves to blame. They were stupid enough to start a war they couldn’t win. And their own blunders and cravenness and the monumental stupidity of Churchill contributed greatly to the loss of the Empire. But the fact remains that U.S. foreign policy was extremely hostile to the British Empire and in general anti-British, mainly because Britain seemed to be a rival.

    Immigrants in the South fought for the Confederacy……

    six Confederate generals were Irish-born. Units such as the Charleston Irish Volunteers[5] attracted Confederate Irish-Americans in South Carolina, the 24th Georgia Volunteer Infantry followed General Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb, while Irish Tennesseans could join the 10th Tennessee Infantry Regiment. A company of the Washington Blues regiment of the Missouri Volunteer Militia (later the Missouri State Guard), commanded by Colonel Joseph Kelly, was the subject of a Confederate song, “Kelly’s Irish Brigade”.[6] The Louisiana Tigers, first raised by Major Chatham Roberdeau Wheat, had a large number of Irish American members. Company E, Emerald Guard, 33rd Virginia Infantry of the Stonewall Brigade composed of Irish immigrant volunteers may have been first to make the infamous “rebel yell” at 1st Bull Run, attacking 14th New York guns on Henry Hill. The Davis Guard, a company of mostly Irish-American men from the Houston and Galveston area, won a lopsided victory Second Battle of Sabine Pass in 1863. They received the only physical medals awarded by the CSA, made from polished Mexican silver coins and hung from green ribbons to honor their Irish heritage.[7]

    That’s why the dissident right is a dead end. So many of them are still obsessing about commies under the bed.

    They also can’t wrap their minds around other unpleasant realities, such as the fact that the police are there to protect the interests of the elites. Anyone who notices that is also a goddamn commie pinko.

    Because we’ve abandoned our religion. But you can’t live without a religion So you look for substitute religions. Science is a very seductive substitute religion. And nowadays Science works exactly like a religion. It’s not about truth, it’s about identifying and rooting out heresies. Both sides see their version of Science as Revealed Truth and they see the other side’s version as wicked heresy.

    This, I think, is part of “The Clarification”, i.e., the sudden, painful realization that the left is just as bad as the right and the worst of the left are sometimes worse than the worst of the right.

    Agreed.
