From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

Bubba Smollett, Jussie Wallace

by Steve Sailer, June 24, 2020

The years of antiwhite hate hysteria over nooses supposedly being planted by white racists to terrorize blacks will eventually induce some white guy to actually do it. But, judging by what we know so far about the latest brouhaha—over a purported noose found in the garage of Bubba Wallace, the half-black NASCAR race driver—Noose News seems to remain Fake Noose.

I first wrote about Wallace in 2013 in my Taki’s column “Nature, Nurture, and NASCAR,” when he was only 19, but already was being hyped as NASCAR’s Great Black Hope, the Tiger Woods of stock car racing.

Read the whole thing there.

Since I wrote this column, the FBI announced that its crack 15 man team of top men has determined it wasn’t a hate crime, just the stupid garage door pull rope loop, as crowdsourcing conservatives on the Internet had figured out on Monday. From AL.com:

‘Noose’ found in Bubba Wallace’s garage was door pull, had been there since 2019, officials say
Updated Jun 23, 2020; Posted Jun 23, 2020

By Carol Robinson | [email protected]

A rope found in the garage stall of Black driver Bubba Wallace at the NASCAR race Sunday was a garage door pull, not a noose, and had been there since 2019, federal authorities and NASCAR said Tuesday.

Northern District of Alabama U.S. Attorney Jay Town on Monday announced his office had launched an investigation along with the FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Town said they were looking to see whether there are violations of federal law. No federal crime was committed, his office said.

Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp Jr. on Tuesday released this statement about the probe: “On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding this event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed.

The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week.” …

The discovery of the rope, announced by NASCAR Sunday night, came less than two weeks after Wallace successfully pushed the stock car racing series to ban the Confederate flag at its tracks and facilities.

How big a contract did Colin Kaepernick get from Nike to sit around and be oppressed by the white man?

If you check in with iSteve constantly (which you should), you may have noticed Monday evening that I put up briefly an iSteve post on Bubba Wallace pointing to some early research casting doubts on his story. But late on Monday evening, The Last Refuge’s new findings came together conclusively proving that the pull loop that had been photographed last fall was no longer there this weekend.

I don’t like being wrong, especially for a column that will be up for a week, so I was initially cautious, relegating their investigation to a blog post. But when The Last Refuge proved their case, I took down the post and switched the subject of my column. Unfortunately, I had to take down about 20 of your comments, but I will paste them back in the comments on this post.

By the way, here’s my popular February 2019 column “Fake Noose!” about Jussie Smollett and why noose news is virtually always fake noose.

Also, here is my 2013 column about the then 19-year-old Bubba Wallace: “Nature, Nurture, and NASCAR.”

From the New York Times, here’s the admission:

FBI Investigation Finds No Crime in Wallace Noose Incident
By Reuters
June 23, 2020

(Reuters) – An FBI investigation into a noose found hanging in Bubba Wallace’s garage prior to a NASCAR Cup race concluded a federal crime was not committed, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Northern District of Alabama said on Tuesday.

The investigation determined that the noose found in Wallace’s stall at the Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday may have been in that garage as early as October 2019.

(Reporting by Steve Keating in Toronto; Editing by Leslie Adler)

Two sentences plus a headline and they made three errors: The loop in the rope used to pull the garage door down wasn’t a noose. A noose knot tightens, but this was a fixed loop so it wouldn’t hurt your hand.

    Even if it is real. Even if a white American did plant a noose on a black American. It’s obviously and attempt at trolling and drawing an overreaction. It isn’t proof that Hitler is coming back, or that confederates are back and want to own slaves again. That’s asinine. Whites have nothing to gain from planting nooses on blacks. Most white Americans (and most black Americans) have no idea who Bubba Wallace is and simply don’t care. The person with the most to gain from this is Bubba Wallace himself.

    Personally, I recommend the Cleetus McFarland YouTube channel if anyone wants any NASCAR-type action. Way more fun.
    He built a YouTube channel around his original video of him putting a whistle in his exhaust pipe (yup) and with the money from that bought himself a little racetrack that he has been renovating. He puts up a video every day and staged a big nitrous Crown Vic race at his track just as the lockdown commenced.
    Here he is yesterday trying out his new drift car.
    The action starys about 12 minutes in.

    An unstated aspect in all this is how childish and immaturely corporate suits handle these types of incidents. There was apparently no skepticism of the report, no brief Preliminary investigation (which, assuming the CT theory is correct, would have discovered the true origins of the “noose”), and no sense in not blowing this up into an international news story before establishing all the facts internally. Nope, NASCAR officials rushed to tell Wallace and the world that someone in or around their organization was an evil racist and that they were 100% committed to offering woke platitudes and self-emulating in order to scare away any fans still clueless enough to follow the sport.

    Hmmm… I like the theory that Bubba or someone on his team did this to wrest the narrative back from the absolute hero who used his personal aircraft to fly a Confederate flag over a NASCAR race.
    But… the mundane answer of “any rope is now a noose” seems plausible.

    One aspect of a lot of these noose panics that irks me is how few involve actual nooses. I know it’s silly but the difference between the kind of slipknot associated with hangings and every other knot used for practical purposes (bowlines, etc) is pretty obvious and should give people pause. But it never does. For example that garage door knot shown is clearly not a noose. No one would use a slipknot to pull something down – when you pull a slipknot it tightens so it’s not ideal for that purpose. Are we pretending that every rope with a loop tied in the end found anywhere ever is meant to convey a threatening message?

    That may or may not be the true explanation, but we’ve seen a ton of delusionary manias about nooses like this recently.
    I don’t remember even one real one in the past few years.
    It’s like every time someone sees a knotted rope it’s suddenly a noose.
    BLM and the FBI should raid all climbing guns and marinas and docs post haste. From what I’ve seen there they must all be run by nazis.

    Hard not to notice that while al.com hints at the truth of the matter, every single national and international mass-media outlet is running some form of “turned out to be a coincidence” and “the noose was already there months ago” with absolutely nothing about garage door pulls.

    Also worth noting is that Bubba himself isn’t buying any of the “alternate explanations” insisting instead that he’s a bona fide victim of yet another white racist lynching. He’s gonna play this one out for all it’s worth.

    What! Arrest it now! Or it may appear at any time, in any place!

  13. Steve, your Takimag columns are your very best work! You put a lot of your everyday ideas into each one. Here’s some very minor criticism: It’s not all of the time, but you usually don’t have what I’d call a real conclusion paragraph. It just kind of ends with a paragraph with another good point, but not really a summary.

    Also, this title is not one of your best, simply because the idea in it is not really expounded on in the article. Most people do know who Jussie Smollett is, I guess, but, I dunno… how about something like “Hate Bait For Bubba”? You have a long political memory, though maybe not all of your readers do – I assume you remember this “boob bait for bubbas” line, said on the internet to be from Patrick Moynihan – that’s going WAY back – but as I recall being said during the Clinton welfare reform (mid/late 1990s) time. Whaddya’ say, switch it out?

    As to what you write, that is a great description of what NASCAR is about, with its origins from the bootlegging era. It was a white thing, when they were sticking it to the (Federal) man, but at time when I doubt white/black relations would have been as much of a concern as bootlegger/revenuer relations.

    Anyway, I make an effort NOT to keep up with stupidity on the Infotainment, so nice job filling me in, as usual, Steve. Been to the drag race, monster-truck shows, and one Indy-500, but never NASCAR. There will be no 1st time for that, since I heard about the Rebel flag business.

    Michael Strahan told ABC staff he felt he couldn’t “speak up and raise his voice” behind the scenes on “Live with Kelly” — fearing reprisals as a black man.

    The “Good Morning America” host spoke out during a town hall on racism with Bob Iger on June 4 in front of all ABC and Disney employees.

    https://pagesix.com/2020/06/15/michael-strahan-felt-he-couldnt-speak-up-backstage-on-live-with-kelly/

    Michael Strahan — NFL star, personally popular, 6’5″ 250+ lbs., net worth $65-75 mil. – “feared reprisals” by Kelly Ripa, sub-100 lbs.

    His whole popularity is that he is a normal friendly black guy not angry Blackety Black.

    Is it that all blacks are really seething Blackety-Black beneath the smiles?

    Or is it that all blacks, no matter how privileged by birth or successful on their own, live under the mental tyranny of needing to show they are “authentic” by “keeping it real”?

    For blacks, there are three ways to keep it real: Angry, Violent, and Victim.

    Elite level blacks like Strahan, Prof. Gates, NASCAR Bubba – are not of the nature nor in the position to display Angry or Violent, so Victim Black is their ticket to Blackety-Black authenticity.

    Unfortunately this is not just amongst blacks but is seen in girls/women in #MeToo.

    (It has been greatly under-noted that the very name of this movement is a psychological trigger to female conformism, as well as being proof of this being a fundamental fact of female psychology/judgment.)

    The overall effect of otherwise masculine black claiming Victimhood in such grasping ways, has the effect instantly to make them all appear effeminate.

    Such that tiny Kelly Ripa now appears to be a tougher person than gigantic Michael Strahan.

    Steve, your/Cochran’s distinction between Heroes of Accomplishment of the past and Heroes of Suffering as characteristic of our times, is one of the most important things you have said on your blog.

  15. I’ve been a race fan since before I knew what race relations were.

    NASCAR has been terrible since the 2000s, although the process started when it ‘went all corporate’ and moved many races from venerable old tracks (like Rockingham and North Wilkesboro) to dreadfully boring ones.

    The drivers also got boring after the mid 2000s.

    Bubba Wallace ain’t even good, as the kids say. He’s won zero races in Winston Cup (or whatever they call it now) and zero in Busch Series (or whatever they call it now). He’s only in this series because he’s a mulatto. He has no personality and he sucks at racing. End of story.

    Real racing is on dirt. Kyle Larson, who got kicked out of NASCAR for “racially insensitive comments,” has been dominating in his return to full-time open wheel dirt racing. Granted, he has the best equipment money can buy, but so does much of his competition. His talent is supreme.

    My only fear is that the corporate Globohomo people will swoop down and turn dirt track racing into a boring, gay, multiculti snooze fest like NASCAR is.

    By the way, Larson’s “racially insensitive” comment was made after the sucky Bubba Wallace wrecked him in iRacing the video game.

    That Christopher Wray’s FBI sent fifteen agents to investigate a complaint in regard to an act that would ordinarily be a class B misdemeanor in New York (and, presumably, most other states) is an indication that the FBI is horribly overstaffed or has an idiot institutional culture.

    A good article Steve, but I do have one quibble. This line:

    “Wallace is not a natural prodigy, but instead is a product of the Tiger Woods era of child competitors given every advantage by their parents”

    Professional auto racing is like professional ball and stick sports. If you want to get to the top levels of the sport you need to start practicing and playing at a young age and have a laser like focus on competing and improving. So professional racers start racing go karts at single digit ages and work their way up to smaller, slower racing cars and then, if talented and lucky, the top level in IndyCar, NASCAR, Formula One, etc. Much like his counterpart in MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, etc. by the time that late teens or early twenties rookie appears, he’s been practicing his craft for over a decade. The era of a driver picking up racing as a teen or young man and moving into the upper ranks through sheer grit and talent is pretty much over.

    That’s not technically a noose. It has a knot in it that prevents the part of the rope coiled around the other part of the rope from slipping down and continuously tightening around the users hand. The hand loop wouldn’t be functional without that knot. A real noose doesn’t have that knot, ensuring that it continually tightens around the hanging mans neck. I used to be a lifeguard in college and we tied our whistles into little nooses with knots in the rope at a particular point. If we had to go into the ocean and save someone we’d yank our whistles down, tightening the loop around our neck so that it couldn’t come off over our heads while we were in the ocean, but the little knot prevented the noose from tightening all the way down over our necks. That way when we reached the drowning person in shock and hysterics flailing to grab onto anything in reach, they couldn’t grab our whistle and choke us out, ensuring both our death and their own.

  23. @Steve Sailer

    In 2014 two white Ole Miss frat guys got drunk and put a noose on a statue on campus of James Meredith (first black student). It was a national news story for a while.

    They got charged federally with the 10 year felony of conspiracy against rights. They pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and spent six months in prison. This despite that the statue was not on federal property, was not even damaged, and the noose was not meant to intimidate anyone in particular.

    Bill Barr should remember this precedent as statues are desecrated all over America.

A racist NASCAR driver could have placed a racist piece of rope in another NASCAR drivers safe space, and that’s “just not who we are.”

Two teenagers were seen in the area with the rope before the noose was discovered, but no witnesses saw anyone putting the noose in the tree, police said.

    On Saturday, fliers saying “White Men, Join Your Local White Nationalists” were found taped to street signs, utility poles and fences on Buck Island Road, Higgins Crowell Road south of Route 28 and on Route 28 east and west of Higgins Crowell Road, police said.

    The 20 fliers, which were printed on 8-inch-by-11-inch pieces of paper, were removed by police.

    “Both cases are being taken seriously in order to determine the person(s) responsible. These overtly inflammatory actions are denounced by the Yarmouth Police Department,” Chief Frank Frederickson ​posted on Facebook. “I strongly believe that this not representative of Yarmouth and was likely performed by a few troubled individuals who are hateful.​”

    Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to contact police.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess a couple of young white female wokels staged this to highlight the problem of racism and white supremacy. Hope FBI finds them and they do 15 years at FPC Alderson.

    It is never a noose. There is another story like this right now about a piece of twine that “looked like a noose” at a track in Pomona, California. When they say that it means it has a knot in it. Blacks are allowed to cry noose at anything they see with a knot in it. It is part of black privilege.

    So professional racers start racing go karts at single digit ages and work their way up to smaller, slower racing cars and then, if talented and lucky, the top level in IndyCar, NASCAR, Formula One, etc.

    Agree. Also, in open-wheel racing (IndyCar, F1), the cars— jet fighters on wheels— are much more sophisticated and require more engineering and precision. This is most true in IndyCar (racing on three very different courses— street, road, oval) and requires drivers to work closely with the engineers (during testing, qualifying, and racing). I.e., they have to have high intellectual aptitude and this is evident when you hear them interviewed.

    IndyCar drivers are, without exception, high caliber types with good genetics. IndyCar driver J.R. Hildebrand was a National Merit Scholar and accepted to MIT (he deferred it to race IndyCar). He guest lectures on vehicle/race car dynamics at Stanford.

    Steve once said that he was on the lookout for what would follow World War G (war for gayness) and World War T (war for trannyism). He cast about a bit with World War Hair, but I think after the last three weeks, the verdict is now in: the next big thing is World War W (war on whites) or to keep the format consistent, World War B (war for blacks) which means the same thing.

    Unlike WWG and WWT where you can surrender by baking them a wedding cake or letting them into your daughter’s changing room, in WWW/WWB, the only surrender is unconditional: your extinction.

    The legitimacy of the 2020 election is already lost. I feel like this is the discussion that needs to happen at a national level. There has already been far too much political censorship and political violence to say otherwise. The only cause for the left to stop its excessive censorship is recognition that their own political legitimacy is lost because of extreme censorship and political violence.

    On political censorship:

    1. A massive share of Trump’s 2016 support on social media is suspended. Just looking at Twitter alone (which has actually been better than other platforms) influential and widely followed figures like Katie Hopkins, Charles C. Johnson, Jared Taylor, Alex Jones and everyone associated with Infowars, Baked Alaska, Laura Loomer, James Woods for many months, Zero Hedge for many months, Owen Shroyer, Turning Point people, Milo, RS McCain, Anthony Cumia, Martin Shkreli, Heartiste, Vox Day…. it has been a steady loss and never all at once, but taken as a whole the effect has been an overwhelming systemic censorship.

    Now Trumps number one memesmith Carpe Donkum is permabanned on Twitter.

    2. Trump’s own tweets are openly interfered with.

    3. All of unz.com is censored by Google and Facebook.

    4. Vdare losing its domain registration is extraordinary.

    5. Here is Project Veritas capturing Facebook censorship:
    “If someone is wearing a MAGA hat I’m going to delete them for terrorism” – Lara Kontakos, Content Moderator

    6. Meanwhile left wing agitator Shaun King called for violence against white churches and Andrew Jackson statues this Monday morning on Twitter and by Monday afternoon there were attacks against St. John’s Church and an attempt to tear down the Jackson statue — both attacks taking place feet from the White House. (Jackson won the War of 1812 in which DC was burned to the ground). Shaun King faced no consequences on Twitter for his immediately-acted-on call for political violence. Every one of the conservative bannings on Twitter was for far less.

    On violence:

    1. Who dares hold a right wing rally anywhere? The threat of physical violence is much worse than it ever was in 2016. The police are the enemy because they try to stop the violence.

    2. Who dares have a Trump sticker on their car, or wear a Trump hat near any population center?

    3. Where even Trump can’t stop left-wing violence at his own rallies with massive law enforcement at his disposal, what hope is there for organizers of lesser rallies?

    4. Here is a Wisconsin State Senator on the ground, unconscious after a vicious beating just a few hours ago. I can’t image he is okay.

    A journalist on the scene:
    “I believe this is State Senator Tim Carpenter. Minutes earlier he told us the protesters assaulted him. Then he collapsed walking towards the Capitol. We called paramedics. An ambulance is here now.”

    [I tried to embed that picture.]

    On political interference:

    1. Trump rallies are now subject to massive political interference. Apparently with the rally in Oklahoma, a million leftists registered falsely, totally ruining the event planning and ruining any data collection and registration efforts. How is that not illegal? Virus aside, how can Trump rallies even be organized in the future?

    2. Interference by China is open and unremarked on even as it vastly exceeds any Russia interference in 2020.

    How can the 2020 election have any legitimacy in the face of this massive interference? The Trump side is robbed of all speech rights, faces violence when gathering, and conservatives hardly dare to assemble for a rally. The First Amendment is a farce. The left needs to realize that they destroy their own political legitimacy.

    The video is interesting because it may have been the impetus for the cancelling of the 30 rock episodes.

    For blacks, there are three ways to keep it real: Angry, Violent, and Victim.

    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a useful approach to changing one’s way of dealing with the world. Wikipedia describes it: “CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.”

    On-line, you can find lists of common cognitive distortions that make it very difficult for those who hold them to achieve happiness or success. What is remarkable, is that Western society, through its education system and media, imbues black people with these cognitive distortions and thinks it is doing them a favor.

    * Resenting other people (Whites)
    * Bitterness about the past (Slavery, Jim Crow, Red-lining, Emmett Till)
    * Self-centeredness (Black Lives Matter)
    * Blaming other people for one’s problems (Racism)
    * Feeling superior to everyone else (We was kangz!)
    * Ill-will towards strangers (Polar bear attacks)
    * Focus on the faults of other people (Whites, Asians)
    * Being overly pessimistic (Black man ain’t got no chance in the white man’s world)
    * Blowing things out of proportion (Noose! Banana peel! Cotton balls!)
    * Always attributing negative motives behind the actions of others (Why did he call me “articulate”?)

    There are sites on-line where they go into depth on cognitive distortions, such as at https://positivepsychology.com/cognitive-distortions/

    Read them and you can’t help but be struck by how this kind of self-defeating thinking is encouraged in blacks throughout their lives.

    Sailor’s knots, Boy Scout knots, rigger’s knots – they are all part of the Old America, where people worked with their hands and knowing which knot to use could literally be a matter of life and death. This is the new America where you don’t actually have to know anything having to do with the real, material world. You deal entirely in words and concepts, and increasing, as journalism becomes feminized, in feelz. Building stuff – that’s all outsourced to Chinese and immigrants. The scribes of the NY Times wouldn’t know a bowline from a noose if their life depended on it.

    There is no admission, and there is never going to be any admission in the MSM that there was never any NOOSE at all, just a door pull loop formed with a bowline knot. No one would make a hand loop in the form of an actual noose knot because the loop would tighten around your hand when you pulled it.

    Of course part of this is Protective Stupidity, as Orwell called it. Today’s Party Line is that, yes the NOOSE was there for a long time but it’s still a NOOSE and we’re gonna keep calling it a NOOSE. Maybe some horrible racist white person put that NOOSE there last fall? We are not going to admit that we were idiots and fell for a hate hoax for the millionth time or that not every piece of rope or string formed into a loop constitutes a NOOSE.

    The MSM journalists are NOT idiots, they are armed with Protective Stupidity – no one ever lost their job for falling for a hate hoax. On the other hand, if the noose turns out to be real and you ignored it, then you are minimizing racism – maybe this means that YOU are a racist too, doubt the word of a black man, etc. For THAT you could lose your job. “Always believe women” has now been expanded. Now, it’s “always believe women and Black people. In fact believe anyone who is not a white male or a cop. ” There is a lack of symmetry in the price to be paid by journalists for Type 1 and Type 2 errors concerning suspected hate crimes and this explains why the MSM keeps falling for these obvious hoaxes again and again. Steve is bright but so are these journalists (at least some of the older ones – the quality keeps going down as the workforce browns and feminizes).

    This issue has now received more news coverage than the video of the 31-year-old black man and no sucker punched a 92-year-old white woman; more coverage than the video of the 200+ blacks who looted that WalMart; more coverage than the murder of David adorn; more coverage than any mention of the level of violence Chicago has suffered the last four weekends.

    This is not quite up to the level of ridiculousness of white Trump supporters driving around the South side of Chicago on the coldest night of the year to beat up black people while shouting “this is Trump country” – but its close. I live in Santa Fe. The average age of a white person here is about 65. The city is 85% registered Democratic.

    I am curious as to how exactly this inane hoax came about. Surely the Nascar people must have known it was totally ridiculous from the get-go My guess is it was a bizarre preemptive self-defamation to prevent potential future scandal. Better to have a couple days of hysteria now then to have Bubba Gump come out sometime in the future and declare that the KKK/Nascar fraternal society tried to lynch him to preserve the racial purity of the sport, and then Nascar covered it up too, the racist bastards! Especially since it’d be easier to prove that absolutely nothing happened in the immediate aftermath of the non-event than at a later date. Some wanna sell it as a Nascar publicity stunt. They’d have to be pretty goddamn stupid for that to be the case. Now tens of millions of people are going to insist from now on that Bubba was practically lynched, regardless of the evidence. And surely some portion of Nascar’s totally white fanbase isn’t going to be happy with being defamed and subjected to an absurd hate hoax.

    Always interesting how idiots supporting these hoaxes try and salvage the situation. Biggest one, hilariously, is to declare that loops are inherently sinister. That terrifying loop had been their for quite possibly years, and there were loops all over the place? That just makes it worse! Obviously they had been all left around for the explicit purpose of oppressing any nearby blacks should they happen to see the loops. Other classic claims include that Bubba did nothing wrong. He just had no choice but the run with inflammatory claims without any actual evidence. That is absolutely the most generous interpretation of his actions one can make, and it’s still not good. The idea that he could’ve manipulated or outright manufactured the situation in order to garner himself more attention than he’d ever receive via legitimate means is apparently unthinkable. Finally, and most outrageously, people like Megan McArdle have claimed that anti-white hoaxes are simply good. They brought everyone together in their love of scapegoating whites for imaginary events that would be trivial if they had actually happened. Anti-whiteness brings us all together apparently.

It really depends what kind of construction – if you are talking about heavy construction, unionized jobs – yes there are still a lot of white guys (although they tend to be on the older side). But for most parts of the country, when it comes to light construction (residential building) it’s immigrants as far as the eye can see. Mostly Mexicans but not just. In Philly (and I’m sure even more so in NY and LA) it’s a crazy quilt of ethnicities – Russian roofers and Brazilian framers and Dominican iron workers and Albanian plumbers and on and on – it’s a friggin’ UN of ethnicities.

    A while ago when many people were comparing belief in the nefarious impact of systemic racism to belief in witchcraft I was amused to come across an article based on gallup polling about witchcraft belief in sub-Saharan Africa.

    A new Gallup poll found that belief in magic is widespread throughout sub-Saharan Africa, […]

    belief was inversely linked to happiness. Those who believe in witchcraft rated their lives significantly less satisfying than those who did not.

    One likely explanation is that those who believe in witchcraft feel they have less control over their own lives. People who believe in witchcraft often feel victimized by supernatural forces, […]

    African belief in witchcraft has also led to horrific murders and mutilations in recent years. In 2008, a mob of hundreds of young men killed eight women and three men in two villages in rural western Kenya. The victims were accused of witchcraft — having cast spells that lowered the intelligence of the village’s children.

    Looking for the article to quote just now I read some tips for happiness ostensibly backed up by the research of professor Sonja Lyubomirsky amongst others, and sounding like much well-worn wisdom: be grateful, count your blessings, commit acts of kindness, etc.

    Not exactly the types of things encouraged among blacks either.

    Earlier in the year during this COVID-19 panic NASCAR and IndyCar decided to telecast iRacing events. These weren’t just a few dude-bros firing up the xBox and eating pizza and drinking beer on the couch. The racing set ups were sophisticated racing simulators, on par with an aircraft simulator. During one of these sessions Bubba got his virtual car tangled up with Clint Boyer’s car, and quit the race, quite peeved at what happened. Then, as befits the Social Media Generation, he taunted folks on Twitter who criticized him.

    Which was a step too far for his sponsor, Blue Emu. http://richardpettymotorsports.com/news/blue-emu-to-partner-with-richard-petty-motorsports-at-the-bristol-motor-speedway/

    His virtual, and real cars were sponsored by the company and the company out and said “We don’t support quitters, bye-bye.” And pulled their sponsorship.

    Now sponsorship is the lifeblood of auto racing. No bucks, no racing. So one has to wonder how much of this and other stories about him is a desperate attempt in a tight economy to get a “Woke” sponsor to pony up some cash?

Wallace had been wrecked, and, fed up, quit the game and admitted it was out of anger on Twitter.

    Larson was parked during the race Wallace quit a week earlier by iRacing officials for intentionally wrecking another driver.

    Or …, have we reached the point that the emotional reaction (the expressed FEELINGS) of people claiming to be People-of-Color, Feminists, LGBTQIA+xyz … apparently anyone in the Coalition-of-the-Fringes and/or the 8-to-10 Federally protected classes and identities … has replaced the Constitution, due process, and the rule of law in the United States?

    This must be the implied meaning of the phrase “Black Lives Matter” … that FEELINGS trump the rule of law and due process, allowing People-of-Color and their allies to riot, loot, pillage, and plunder at will without legal and social repercussions because of how they FEEL about someone or something. This is the only sense I can make of police idly watching black protestors pillage and loot a city center while arresting a white counter-protestor for peeing in the park.

    As a university professor, I should have seen this coming. In class, I would ask students what they THOUGHT about something. They would inevitably reply with how they FELT about it.

    I had to remind them that FEELINGS are something they might have for their boyfriends or girlfriends … but that their FEELINGS were irrelevant to the course and their grade. But the tsunami of FEELING over REASON in the current generation has apparently carried the day. Welcome to the Brave New World in which how someone FEELS about someone or something has become the new arbitrator of objectivity and reality. Now, that’s an identity issue!

    “How do you feel about interplanetary exploration?”
    “How do you feel about the chances of developing a Covid-19 vaccine?
    “How do you feel about the Big Bang Theory?

    Question: Why would someone pay $120,000 for a university education to learn how they FEEL about things? They already know that; they have nothing to learn, which probably explains the nonsense coming from university “studies” graduates. To “studies” graduates, academic accomplishment is letting everyone know how they FEEL about things! The more vehement the FEELING, the higher the grade!

    “It must be true … or, otherwise, I wouldn’t feel so strongly about it!”

    Reason and emotion have different criteria for validation. People who REASON fall back on the Law of Noncontradiction and the Law of Contraries as prerequisites for making decisions and drawing conclusions. Emotivists can, at their leisure, be emotional, irrational, and inconsistent to their heart’s desire. No foul; no penalty. From the evidence, it appears that they now give people PhDs for publishing monologues of personalized, narcissistic, emotional drabble.

    Yes, I’m aware I would last about five minutes in a contemporary university classroom.

  154. The larger question — really — is why would anyone make a public incident out of it if they did find a noose — or any other such ‘message’ — aimed at them?

    Let’s put ourselves in Bubba’s shoes — and yes, I have been the target of racial hostility — what do we do?

    We suck it up. If somebody does make a ‘racist attack’ on you, it means you’re not very popular with somebody.

    So decide what to do about that. Be nicer, kick somebody’s ass, leave, ignore it, whatever. Don’t fucking whine.

    We’re getting into this weird space where blacks reacting in ways that we would never tolerate in ourselves or anyone we respected as an equal becomes perfectly legitimate.

    This all can’t end well. As a permanent proposition, we simply cannot tolerate what is emerging as the norm for black behavior.

    Jack, Excellent comment. When I was a kid we had real jobs. One summer, at sixteen, I was a helper for carpenters and bricklayers. Hard work yes, but muscle building and bonding with older guys. Summer jobs at the steel mills kept thousands, yes thousands, of college guys in tuition money. Factories, with their noise, smoke and grit, were right in the city, separated from housing by a chain link fence. Best thing about dangerous work in a hot, stinking factory was when an old timer said…”This is why you want to get an education.” And, I remember once, putting metal decking on a bridge the foreman saying…”Everyone pull your dick out. If we are going to work like donkeys, we should look like donkeys.”

    Black culture: Noose and Shoes. Scream about noose and loot for shoes.

    In a way, the desperate need to belief in the Noble Magic Negro is a form of ‘spiritual’ escapism from the ghastly vile black, too common in reality.

    It’s like the need to believe in the good god. Given the way of reality, god or gods would appear to be pretty cruel, arbitrary in their justice or unjust, uncaring, nihilistic, and etc. But believing in such a god would be a bummer. So, Jews, Christians, and Muslims desperately and passionately clung to the notion of the good God. So, if anything goes wrong, the fault is with the people, never with the good God.

    Same logic operates with white views of blacks. The reality is so grim and frustrating that whites would rather believe in the Noble Negro trope. And if race problems go wrong, it’s entirely the fault of whites.

    ‘Systemic racism’ is the new Original Sin.

    The problem is never with the ghastliness of the Negro but the wrongfulness of white souls.

    In THE GODFATHER, it was Barzini all along.
    In THE GODFATHER Part 2, Michael asks, ‘but who gave the go-ahead’? Sure, the Rosatos done it, but who gave them the green light?

    The current craziness cannot be understood merely by focusing on the street nuttery. Such nuts have been around for a long time. But why do they feel so emboldened? They got the go-ahead from the Power, the Establishment of Media, Deep State, Military Industrial Complex, federal and local governments, and even libraries. (Check your library website and suddenly, the librarians are so shocked about ‘racism’. Where was their outrage about US support of Zionist mass brutality against Palestinians?)

    While street nuts or the mob or radical freaks will always be around, they usually know when to stop when the Power comes down hard on them. Antifa violence has been enabled. BLM was funded by big donors. They’ve been part of propaganda war and lawfare. Antifa would be nothing if the Power went after them like with the Proud Boys. Likewise, ISIS would be nothing without the support of Jewish-Supremacist US.

    If the entire power system coordinated to contain the violence, this would have ended far quicker. But the Power gave the green light. Even the military industrial complex apologized for standing by Trump after restoring order in DC. This was Maidanned. As with Covid, Trump is put in a Scylla and Charybdis situation. If he reacts hard and clamps down, he is a ‘fascist tyrant’. If he goes soft, he is mocked as ineffective and weak.

    Mob logic follows its own rules, but it can be put to an end with effective use of force. This was the case at the Disco Demolition. Once the cops came out in force and chased people down(with full support by the city), the lunacy on the field quickly came to an end. But suppose the Powers-that-be allowed such mob-lunacy to continue and even added fuel to it. The field would have burned all night and things would have been totally smashed.

    The current Civic Demolition has been given the green light from above.

    Jewish supremacist power > Deep State > Globo-homo Corporations > Media > Institutions > Commissars > Street level thugs.

    Thankfully, NASA has found a way to defuse all these racial tensions.

    NASA Names Headquarters After ‘Hidden Figure’ Mary W. Jackson

    NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine announced Wednesday the agency’s headquarters building in Washington, D.C., will be named after Mary W. Jackson, the first African American female engineer at NASA.

    Jackson started her NASA career in the segregated West Area Computing Unit of the agency’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. Jackson, a mathematician and aerospace engineer, went on to lead programs influencing the hiring and promotion of women in NASA’s science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers. In 2019, she was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.

    “Mary W. Jackson was part of a group of very important women who helped NASA succeed in getting American astronauts into space. Mary never accepted the status quo, she helped break barriers and open opportunities for African Americans and women in the field of engineering and technology,” said Bridenstine. “Today, we proudly announce the Mary W. Jackson NASA Headquarters building. It appropriately sits on ‘Hidden Figures Way,’ a reminder that Mary is one of many incredible and talented professionals in NASA’s history who contributed to this agency’s success. Hidden no more, we will continue to recognize the contributions of women, African Americans, and people of all backgrounds who have helped construct NASA’s successful history to explore.”

    I’m a little bit worried that we will run out of streets and buildings to name to reduce the tensions of the day. However, George Orwell reminds us in 1984 that the work of memoryholing and renaming and rewriting is constant! the Party is always right.

    Completely OT, but have you been following the Milwaukee story from last night, Steve?

    “Milwaukee” was trending on Twitter all day, and if you go to Twitter and search for “Milwaukee”, you’ll find all kinds of stuff about it.

    Basically, what happened was, a bunch of black people in Milwaukee heard that two teenage girls were missing, so the girls’ mom used the GPS on their phones to track them to the area around this dilapidated old house. Which the mob broke into, and didn’t actually find either of the girls. But one of the girls was somewhere nearby. Then three people got shot, and then they burned down the house, destroying whatever evidence they thought that they found.

    And nobody on Twitter seems to have a problem with any of this. In fact, this is taken as an example of how we’ll get justice once the police have been abolished. Like our friend Tariq Nasheed here:

    In #Milwaukee 2 underaged Black girls were reported missing..

    The police refused to do anything about it…

    The Black community in Milwaukee got together, found the girls and rescued them..

    They then burned down the house of the alleged pedophile who tried to traffic them

    Of course, as far as anyone can tell, there WAS no “trafficking”. There doesn’t seem to be anything, except an angry mob of people breaking into people’s houses and burning them down.

    And everyone on Twitter is talking about how great it is. I don’t see a single person suggesting that, perhaps, breaking into people’s houses and burning them down without any kind of trial might work out poorly as a way of finding “justice”. And nobody seems to be pointing out that three people actually got shot during this process, which is interesting, since their entire complaint about the police is that they shoot people too much.

    And, of course, these people being how they are, there are now a whole bunch of rumors flying around, about how there were actually a bunch more children who were rescued, and the police were the ones doing the human trafficking, and all the usual stuff.

    And as far as I can tell, almost nobody in the regular media is talking about it, except local stations like this one.

    https://fox6now.com/2020/06/23/milwaukee-police-investigate-missing-persons-reports-for-2-girls-ages-15-and-13/

    For any of you who have the same sort of reaction to this noosteria as i do, but lack the requisite skill set, i highly recommend Grog’s Knocts.

    Grog won’t show you a hangman’s knot anymore because of the political climate. But if you want any regular old non-slipping knot that will get the excitable people excited … Grog’s has you covered:
    https://www.animatedknots.com/perfection-loop-knot

    And they have an app–all platforms–for those who don’t want to be caught with a “noose” in their car, but want to tie it “on site”.

    ~~~

    I highly recommend that every young white man learn to tie a traditional hangman’s noose. (And a bunch of useful knots as well–two half-hitches, truckers hitch, bowline, sheet bend, figure eight, etc.)

    When this b.s. comes up at a party, being about to whip up a solid, good looking noose in a flash will add–cheaply–a bit of “bad boy” to your image, and produce an element of frisson in the young woman that interests you. (Walk her step-by-step through tying one–the kino, the forbidden.)

    And, of course, for young black guys this is a must have. Need a raise? Bad performance review coming up? About to get fired?

  217. Not to be too snarky, but doesn’t anyone use The Ashley Book of Knots as a reference these days? Seriously, it’s an amazing work. It’s chock full of practical knowledge and is a necessary companion for anyone interested in maritime history. Got mine from my gramps.

    There’s an entire chapter on so-called “nooses,” or snares, really. It’s chapter 13. These are practical knots learned in Boy Scouts, advanced naval service or survival training. For catching rabbits and other varmints, although Ashley does mention the hangman.

    Wouldn’t the garage door knot that killed NASCAR be more closely labelled a lanyard?

    Another book that all normal families should have is The American Boys Handy Book.

    Books from an era when boys were allowed to become men.

  222. I decided to give ESPN a couple of clicks to see what they’re saying about the Bubba hoax. It’s not pretty. If you want to see Narrative sausage-making in progress right before your eyes, read their latest write-up: LINK

    Summary version:

    So was there really a noose? YES!

    So even though Bubba was assigned the noosey garage by chance, and even though Bubba may never have actually seen the noose himself, exactly, and even though the FBI has declared this is not a crime, will NASCAR continue its own risibly (or should we say suitably) fake investigation of what clearly is a hoax? YES, YES, YES!!! Because Big Justice.

    So will you, you know, just show us a photo of the noose? NO, of course not, naive and hickish interlocutor — that noose is EVIDENCE so it’s gotta be kept TOP SECRET.

    I could go on, but you get the gist.

    Seriously, the line they’re taking now is that, okay, so the ‘noose’ was indeed the loop in the garage door rope, but that someone (with obvious but unspoken psychic abilities plus vicious racist hatred in his heart) tied it up in a noose shape somewhere back in 2019, just knowing that Bubba would be assigned that garage at random at least nine months later, because hate is just that powerful, but now NASCAR is all about love, and tears of regret and reconciliation, and hugs and support, and so forth.

    In modern racing the technology is at such a level that the chief mechanic/ crew chief and engineers make a much bigger impact than driving talent. The key to success since the 1970s/80s is the chief mechanic and driver relationship. A driver who can communicate on the same wavelength as the chief mechanic to get him to set the car up to their liking is going to win more races than someone who has “the touch” yet can not communicate how the car handles to their team.

    For Alt Right Whites, there are three ways to keep it real: Angry, Violent, and Victim.

    There are a number of Alt Right and Alt Lite posters here who would benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). It is a useful approach to changing one’s way of dealing with the world. Wikipedia describes it: “CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.”

    On-line, you can find lists of common cognitive distortions that make it very difficult for those who hold them to achieve happiness or success. What is remarkable, is that a number of authors here, through their alleged pattern recognitions and sage advice, imbues White people with these cognitive distortions and thinks it is doing them a favor.

    * Resenting other people (Jews, non-whites)
    * Bitterness about the past (Illegality of Jim Crow laws, Loss by the South in the Civil War)
    * Self-centeredness (European-American hierarchy)
    * Blaming other people for one’s problems (Democrat and Republican “elites”, Fake News)
    * Feeling superior to everyone else (Human biodiversity)
    * Ill-will towards strangers (Boogaloo movement, Proud Boys)
    * Focus on the faults of other people (Jews, non-whites)
    * Being overly pessimistic (Whites are being exterminated)
    * Blowing things out of proportion (Jewish cabal! Deep State!)
    * Always attributing negative motives behind the actions of others (Why did the white woman choose not to date me?)

    There are sites on-line where they go into depth on cognitive distortions, such as at https://positivepsychology.com/cognitive-distortions/

    Read them and you can’t help but be struck by how this kind of self-defeating thinking is encouraged in a number of posters here throughout their lives.

People are always searching for a black who breaks the mold and acts independently of the usual dreary black-think. They’re always let down because the black they think might be different reverts back to the black norm.

    There are financial reasons for this particular claim. It’s basically a cash grab.

We are left with a straw man racist who desperately wants to be surrounded by black bodies. The fact that this doesn’t make any sense is handled emperor’s clothes style.

    Conspiracy Against Rights

    Section 241 of Title 18 is the civil rights conspiracy statute. Section 241 makes it unlawful for two or more persons to agree together to injure, threaten, or intimidate a person in any state, territory or district in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him/her by the Constitution or the laws of the Unites States, (or because of his/her having exercised the same). Unlike most conspiracy statutes, Section 241 does not require that one of the conspirators commit an overt act prior to the conspiracy becoming a crime.

    The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term or the death penalty.

    I guess things are different in different regions of the country, but in the part of the midwest where I live, most people in the construction business seem to be native-born non-hispanic whites. The exception to this rule is roofing, where most of the workers do appear to be Mexican. Last year we had some home renovations done, and out of about 8 workers, one was black, all the others were white. None were hispanic. This was not an isolated example- most of the time when I see someone having contract work done in their homes, the workers are mostly white. I do, however, see more workers who seem to be Mexican when driving past new homes being built. Blacks seem to be underrepresented in the construction industry overall, but I do see a number of blacks doing concrete work. Plumbers and electricians are overwhelmingly white.

    Another trend that I have noticed in this area over the last decade is a small but increasing number of Amish men in the construction business. I live in the city, and the nearest Amish community that I know of is about an hour away, but they hire drivers to take them to their worksites. I have never had any work done by Amish contractors, but I have known a couple of people who have, and they were fully satisfied with the work that was done. It seems that over the last few decades, the Amish nationwide have been moving away from farming and now work mostly in non-agricultural jobs. They tend to form small businesses where the entire family can work together, which serves the dual purpose of protecting them from outside influences and at the same time keeping the families self-sufficient.

    Thanks.

    Five minutes’s Googling shows that there must be more to the story. Apparently there were three students, but only two were ever charged: Graeme Phillip Harris and Austin Something Edenfield. No word on why the third one wasn’t charged. It was also unclear whether Edenfield got more than a slap on the wrist. Harris got 6 months.

    Apparently Edenfield actually performed the vandalism, leaving it unclear as to what Harris actually did. Moreover, his defence seemed to shift over time: at first his lawyer is saying it was a harmless prank without ramification, then later talking about Harris having come under the spell of RACISM at some point.

    Those willing to put in more than 5 minutes may wish to consider the following questions:

    1. Was it intended to be racist or not?
    2. If racist, was it a conscious emulation/reification of previous noose incidents?

    https://www.gainesville.com/news/20080815/teen-who-displayed-nooses-at-jena-civil-rights-rally-sentenced-to-4-months

    ALEXANDRIA, Louisiana – A teenager who hung nooses off the back of his truck to intimidate a group of black civil rights demonstrators at a rally in Louisiana has been sentenced to four months in prison.

    Federal prosecutors say 19-year-old Jeremiah Munsen displayed the nooses when he drove past people who had attended a massive civil rights march in Jena on Sept. 20.

    Munsen had faced up to a year in prison after pleading guilty in April to a misdemeanor charge of interfering with the marchers’ federally protected right to travel.

    So displaying nooses in the presence of blacks got Munsen thrown into prison.

    On June 26, 2009, the remaining five defendants entered pleas of “no contest” to a charge of simple battery.[50] The court found them guilty as charged, and sentenced each to a fine of $500 (waived in regards to Shaw due to the time he spent in jail), $500 to be paid as court costs, restitution to be paid to the Barker family (with whom the defendants were ordered to have no contact), and seven days of unsupervised probation. The defendants’ lawyers read a statement apologizing to the Barker family and to the town. Addressing the rumors that the attack had been provoked by Barker using a racial epithet, they said on behalf of the defendants:[51]

    To be clear, not one of us heard Justin use any slur or say anything that justified Mychal Bell attacking Justin nor did any of us see Justin do anything that would cause Mychal to react.[50]

    Thomas Jefferson wrote that an amalgamation of the races was the worst possible outcome of granting the Slaves freedom. This was observed by many of his contemporaries as well. Thus, the formation of the American Colonization Society, whose members included James Madison, James Monroe, Winfield Scott, Francis Scott Key and Daniel Webster, among other luminaries. Henry Clay (Lincoln’s mentor) gave the keynote address in which he stated “We must rid the Country of a useless, pernicious, if not dangerous portion of our population.”

    There simply wasn’t any money to be made in freeing Slaves, compensating their Owners, and sending them back to Africa. The Society probably should have looked to sell them to Brazil or one of the Caribbean Islands, but they actually were thinking of the best way to both free them and send them back to their home Continent. They founded Liberia for the purpose, but it was a costly endeavor. If the Society had only known the extent of the trouble the freedmen would eventually cause and realized the scandalous amounts of money that would be wasted on trying civilize, educate, or appease them, it seems certain that they would have exhausted every resource to accomplish their goal in order to avoid the bottomless abyss of futile efforts and squandered finances that are associated with The Black Plague.

    I’ve seen it many a time and he winds, he winds,
    After thirteen times he’s got a slipknot.

    According to wikipedia…

    When Grover Cleveland was the sheriff of Erie County, he performed two hangings. Cleveland was advised by a more experienced Sheriff to grease the rope with tallow and run it through the knot a few times to ensure rapid closure with the drop. The number of coils should therefore be adjusted depending on the intended use, the type and thickness of rope, and environmental conditions such as wet or greasy rope. Six to eight loops are normal when using natural ropes.

    The number thirteen was thought to be unlucky. Consequently, in myth, if not in actual practice, thirteen coils were found in a hangman’s noose, a foreboding sign for those convicted to be hanged.

    Although Spain had agreed with Britain to stop importing slaves into Cuba from Africa starting in 1820, they in fact continued to import slaves up until the 1860s. This was the basis for the Amistad incident. Which leads me to wonder, were any slaves sold from the US into Latin America? And if not, why not? Were market prices higher in the US? Latin America had a continuous need for more slaves because under brutal/tropical conditions they kept dying off. 90% of the slaves imported to the New World went to Latin America.

    Hamilton doesn’t seem to realize his white half is what makes him great.

    Blacks lack the visio-spatial processing capacity to be great racecar drivers.

    This is also the reason there are no great black pocket passing QBs or fighter pilots.

    Don’t the Amish have big families?

    They are reputed to, but I don’t really know if that still is the case. I see farms where there are a couple of boys in the field with their father and a couple of girls out in the yard, but I don’t know the demographics. The more boys you have, the more 160 acre plots you need.

    Cuba and Brazil didn’t cease to import slaves until 1888. Until then, their labor needs were supplied by ships operating primarily out of New York. Robert Shufeldt, U. S. Consul to Cuba, wrote, during the War to Prevent Southern Independence, that 9/10 of the vessels engaged in the slave trade were American.

    Unmanageable Slaves were occasionally threatened with being sold to the Caribbean sugar plantations. There seemed to be an instinctive awareness that, however bad their circumstances might have been, they could get worse. But, I don’t think that it occurred very often, if ever. I’m not certain about the prices, but they had to be high enough to make the trans-oceanic voyages profitable.

    I remember reading somewhere that black air pilots are quicker to react to emergencies than whites, but are more prone to visiospacial and instrument confusion. They are weaker in one area but stronger in the other.

    However, a male black pilot is preferable to a woman pilot of any race, as women have both slower reactions and greater propensity to becoming confused.
