There’s so much material these days, that I probably won’t get around to writing full posts on these ideas, so … here they are!

– The next social justice struggle will be to win full rights of return and warranty service for all retail goods looted within 168 hours of a black criminal being killed by the police.

– The growing struggle between gay men and transgender ex-men appears to be largely pitting artists vs. autists.

– Would Derek Chauvin and the other three Minneapolis police officers who had so much trouble subduing 223 pound George Floyd have weighed enough to be cops in 1965?

– These days, in the Fight Against White, a “white supremacist” appears to be defined as anybody who is not a white submissionist.

– When Joe Biden say that America is is “backsliding into the days of Jim Crow when black people had to count jelly beans to get the vote,” what he is saying is that, statistically, blacks are less competent than whites, so secure voting systems tend to have disparate impact on blacks, but that’s not racist because lax voting procedures are good for the Democrats.

Okay, that last one’s less of a one-liner than a run-on sentence.

By the way, aren’t most one-liners really two-liners with a set-up and a punchline? For example:

Take my wife.

Please.

As I may have mentioned, I run iSteve fundraisers in April, August, and December.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me: first, click on “Earmark your donation,” then click on “Steve Sailer:”

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: Most banks now allow fee-free money transfers via Zelle.

If you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent, unlike, say, Paypal.

 

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

  1. – The next social justice struggle will be to win full rights of return and warranty service without receipts for all retail goods looted within 168 hours of a black criminal being killed by the police.

    We’re already there. No riots required.

    – These days, in the Fight Against White, a “white supremacist” appears to be defined as anybody who is not a white submissionist.

    Someone else here put it well: “white supremacist” is simply the new n-word for white people. But yeah, for white people they don’t like.

    We even have (lots of) white people tagging other white people with it. Just like black people tag one another with it. Maybe one day it’ll be a term of endearment, just like the other one.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    We are against whiteness not white people, so white people, just don’t act white. Also, don’t act skin colour but your own.

    Black is powerful. So powerful that anything bad a black person does was actually caused by a white man.

    Try to resist robbery with lethal force and you’re a criminal. Try to resist arrest with lethal force and you’re a gentle saint.

    Black lives matter, if there is a potential civil suit pay out.

  8. Anon[368] • Disclaimer says:

    white supremacy, defined in James Lindsay’s woke dictionary, Translations from the Wokish:

    https://newdiscourses.com/tftw-white-supremacy/

    White supremacy, in common parlance, refers to the belief that there is something about being white that renders people intrinsically superior to those of other races (and, in the extreme, that this is necessarily actionable).

    Under Theory, especially critical race Theory, white supremacy typically means something entirely different. In Social Justice, then, “white supremacy” is the name given to the “racist” system, an attitude of “support” for that system, being comfortable in that system (see also, white comfort, white equilibrium, white innocence, and white ignorance), or witting or unwitting complicity with that system (see also, white complicity).

    Complicity in this sense is usually taken to mean anything short of actively fighting against systemic racism as prescribed by critical race Theory. Thus, a white supremacist is anyone who is not actively antiracist, according to the critical definition of antiracism, which is to say anyone who is not sufficiently woke with respect to race (especially if that person is also white).

    Among other things, like calling essentially every white person and any person of color who disagrees with the Critical Social Justice ideology (especially critical race Theory) a “white supremacist” (see also, white fragility, white silence, and white complicity), this alternative meaning for the term allows critical race Theorists to link the relatively minor racial discrepancies of today to the genuine white supremacy upon which institutions such as slavery were built (see also, 1619 Project). This is a tactical redefinition of an extremely morally salient term—a Trojan Horse in the form of vocabulary.

    Personally, I may qualify as a white supremacist under both the common and the CRT definitions, which simplifies things considerably.

  9. Here’s my favorite one-liner police complaint of the moment.

    “Just because I reported him missing doesn’t mean I wanted him back.”

  10. As anyone who has made a study of my posts could attest, I am quite fond of, probably overly fond of, the ellipsis. Therefore, I can easily craft Mr. Youngman’s signature joke into a true one liner:

    “Take my wife… please”.

  11. In my heroic crusade to eradicate the most loathsome element of any society namely the “normies” I came up with the one-liner, which requires the proper moment to apply namely,

    “I would rather be a spectacular failure than a moderate success”.

    My kind of people would laugh or give an approving smile but the consummate “normie”, unless he/she is scared of you will argue, analyze or rationalize against the statement.

    I thought that the comment was just a one-off but apparently it contains the seeds of explaining self legitimacy for some people who followed society’s (or their parent’s) dictates, became the accountant, married when their friends did, got the mortgage in the sub-division, got shit canned at 50, developed ass cancer from sitting 40+ hours in a chair for 30 years and claim to be successful when in their heart of hearts they always wanted to be, say a landscaper.

    A lady who was a palliative nurse for many years in an upper middle class hospice wrote a book a while back on what she noted in many conversations were the main regrets in life of well to do people doing their last lap while having the unimpeded time to review their existence.

    She noted that by a large margin it was “not being true to myself”. Distant second and third place were the old chestnuts of “spending more time with my family” or “being nicer to people”.

    I guess that leads to another more common one-liner ” when you get old you don’t regret the things that you did but the things you didn’t do”.

    Just an observation.

    Cheers-

  15. I’ve tried “white inferiorist” but I like “white submissionist.”

    While Steve works the phones for his spring funding drive, I’m excited to note that my fall pledge — one dollar for every Pirate win this season — is looking like Fat City. The Bucs have implausibly nabbed five victories, and at this blistering pace would win 68 vs. just 94 losses — a whopping $68 for your favorite blogger and defender of freedom!

    Just a few highlights:
    — Outfielder Anthony Alford is 0-for-19, with 15 strikeouts
    — Outfielder Wilmer Difo became the first Bucco in 40 years to strike out three times in the first three innings.
    — Pirate pitchers wallked 15 Padres and hit three more the other night — and still somehow won the game.

  16. Would Derek Chauvin and the other three Minneapolis police officers who had so much trouble subduing 223 pound George Floyd have weighed enough to be cops in 1965?

    My Grandfather hated seeing women cops. Hated it. He often told me the story of a friend of his who wanted to be a cop for the large, formerly prosperous rust belt city by a lake in which they both lived. This would have been shortly after they returned home from the war (1946ish), so at the time that rust belt city was still prosperous and not the utter shithole it is today. Anyway, his friend was a big guy, probably about 6’2″ 200lbs, but he didn’t meet the height requirement to be a city cop at that time. (This gentleman was later hired by the FBI.) Every time Grandpa saw a woman cop he’d scoff and say something about how she and other women had no business being cops. I think he was right.

    It was in the late sixties when the San Francisco PD dropped the requirement that ( male ) officers be at least 5’9″ tall. This was an early nod to ‘diversity’ as the height requirement disqualified most Chinese (and probably Mexican men too ) but there weren’t a lot of Mexicans in SF back then.

    There were no SWAT units back then but the SFPD had the TAC SQUAD who were the giants on the force. In their riot gear they looked even larger and they had long truncheons they didn’t refrain from using. Funny thing was how few demonstrators got seriously hurt. They bled a lot from head wounds inflicted by those truncheons but were still able to run away.

  29. @unit472

    When I was a teenager in Chicago I was over 6′ tall and I remember many cops in my neighborhood being slightly shorter than me or about my height. Some even towered over me. Now I always see Chicago policemen not much taller than Mick Jagger.

    My building was burglarized a few years ago and the first responding Chicago Officers were a man and a woman. The male officer was no more than 5’8″ tall and the female was about 5’3″.

    Here’s a real White Supremacist, and guess what?
    He’s 100% correct.

    “Western man towers over the rest of the world in ways so large as to be almost inexpressible. It’s Western exploration, science, and conquest that have revealed the world to itself.
    Other races feel like subjects of Western power long after colonialism, imperialism, and slavery have disappeared.
    The charge of racism puzzles whites who feel not hostility, but only baffled good will, because they don’t grasp what it really means: humiliation.
    The white man presents an image of superiority even when he isn’t conscious of it.
    And, superiority excites envy.
    Destroying white civilization is the inmost desire of the league of designated victims we call minorities.”

    Joseph Sobran, April 1997

    “White Supremes” is my prefered, strictly from a marketing view. Salty Cracker uses it. Could have been a Keebler cookie or a 1960’s band with groovy album covers. White Supremes flow through life with ease, and somehow all the traffic lights turn green.

    The recent discussion here led me to look at the application process for NSW Police. I couldn’t find a height requirement. That would explain the almost midget female police officers I’ve seen.

    Like Epstein, Greenberg is probably connected to foreign intelligence and developed the sex ring to blackmail politicians. I’m sure he had bigger targets than Gaetz, though.

    That takes me back. One of the first websites I saw after getting on the internet in the 1990s was by some angry anti-milk activist who blamed milk for a bunch of common health problems.

    This was literally the first time in my life that I had seen milk condemned as unhealthy. It struck me as so weird that it has stuck in my mind ever since.

    In retrospect of course I realize that the guy was probably lactose-intolerant.

    Sorry to hear about your mixer. For what they cost they should last longer. I currently have one in pieces too. It’s an old Hobart K5A like the one in the photo. It’s probably about 40 years old. It needed a little paint work, so I’m waiting on the paint to cure before I put it back together. I took it apart to change the grease and I replaced the plastic worm gear. It sounded a bit loud before the grease change and much better now. My wife was surprised how bad the old grease was. It was pretty nasty. No one changes the grease in their mixer.

    Hobart sold Kitchenaid to Whirlpool in 1986 and the quality has been deteriorating ever since. I hear that the only new kitchanaid mixer worth buying is the Professional 6500 with the DC motor. Good luck finding one. If you want a good kitchenaid mixer that will last more than a couple years you have to get an old one and service it a little. It’s not hard to do, but it is a little messy getting the old grease out and a little time consuming cleaning all the gears really well before reassembly.

  42. But Steve, wouldn’t granting the right of return lead to retailers being inundated with refugee goods, which would push the non-refugee goods into Lake Michigan?
