From my new column in Taki’s Magazine:

Putting Out the Fire With Lighter Fluid
Steve Sailer

July 01, 2020

After race card driver Bubba Wallace’s NooseCAR debacle last week, it would have taken somebody truly dumb and publicity-crazed to breathe life into this week’s even more absurd hate-crime allegation: biracial 18-year-old Althea Bernstein’s assertion that four “classic Wisconsin frat boys” squirted lighter fluid on her and set her ablaze by tossing a lighter into her car in downtown Madison, Wis., during an Antifa riot.

While nobody in the national press has dared express any skepticism about this hilariously unlikely tale, it hadn’t been getting the giant push that would have been expected if anybody of any importance were convinced this whopper were true.

After all, if Bernstein’s yarn about roving racist frat boys in Hawaiian shirts randomly incinerating a Jewish-Unitarian Woman of Color actually happened, it would be gigantic news, far bigger even than, as Joe Biden might say, what’s his name—Pink Floyd? Boy George?—that drugged-up bouncer who wound up dead while resisting arrest and suddenly became history’s greatest saint…

But, c’mon… Frat boys setting a semi-black girl on fire in super-liberal Madison is, obviously, Tawana Brawley/Jackie Coakley-level hate hoaxery, a silly teenager’s attempt to improvise an excuse for being where she shouldn’t have been.

Read the whole thing there.

    As we have already seen, a similar crowd elsewhere that also likely advocated for "defund the police" later screamed "where's the police" when things didn't go in their favor.
    Emotionally these people do not seem to be beyond the age of 5.

    Why the hell would some random 18 year old make this up? Seriously?

    I know someone who knows her. Her story is true.

    Even if they are not telling the complete facts they are TELLING THE ULTIMATE TRUTH about white supremacy and privilege. It is important to have these conservations and hold people accountable.

    When you think about-even if the instances were fictitious they were really true in the most important way and the Victims of Colour should be lauded for their willingness to sacrifice themselves for the greater good.

    Maybe I'm missing something. I simply don't get. When I first saw the video of George Floyd's arrest I was shocked. The narrative with the video said the cops killed him with a choke hold. I was outraged.

    But then I remembered that I'm something of a minor expert on choke holds. I took two semesters of Judo in college. In class we all made efforts to make choke holds. Good way to end a match. I had also once while horsing around as a teenager choked out my neighbor. That was George Smith father of the famous screenwriter Ebbe Smith. He dared me and I put on a simple choke. He dropped like he's been shot between the eyes. I was sure I'd killed him. Scared the hell of of me.

    The outlawed cop choke hold was used because it worked so fast and effectively on large, dangerous and violent suspects. This we all learned in the Rodney King incident. Experts came forward and testified that Rodney King who could not be subdued by multiple Taser hits could have been quickly subdued with the choke hold. The choke with the baton worked much better than Tasers or rubber bullets but had been disallowed by many police departments after a couple cases where it had killed the suspect inadvertently. In a vigorous scuffle it was all to easy to kill. Good policy, no choke holds.

    The point is George Floyd was not choked. He talked for seven minutes on camera. Impossible if you're being chocked. If the choke occludes the carotids you go down immediately. If it just cuts off your air you can hardly be expected to talk. All of this should be well known and not controversial yet it is never heard on mainstream media.

    Another thing you never see on TV News is any mention as to why he was being restrained. Yes, restrained not choked. Why did the cops need to restrain him? Possibly because they were a little afraid. They were definitely afraid of Rodney King in LA. George Floyd was six six. Bigger than the so called "Gentle Giant" who attacked a cop in Ferguson. The knee on the neck wasn't some improvised torture the rogue cops had thought up on the spot. They had been trained to do this hold at the Police Academy to restrain possibly dangerous suspects. I think they may have overreacted. There may have been some personal animus. Floyd was a career criminal and well known to at least some of them. But they did not, as far as I can tell, do anything against police policy or anything illegal.

    The most confusing part of the media reaction is that the autopsy done soon after death indicated that Floyd had three times the fatal dose of Fentenyl in his veins. I'm told that in the part of the video not broadcast before he was arrested he was complaining that he couldn't breathe. He did so after the cop has his foot on his neck but he had been complaining of his inability to get enough air when the cops first arrived. If all this is true then Floyd was having an OD before the arrest. His overdose was certainly fatal without immediate medical intervention. He was therefore a suicide not the victim of a murder. When the cops came up to him he was "a dead man walking".

    Maybe I'm wrong about all this but if so where are all the experts on TV newscasts explaining away all the public facts which seem to point to cops who should be exonerated and a junkie criminal who overdosed? The hysteria around the cops seems bizarre. They don't need to be replaced by social workers (absolutely crazy - I'm an ex-social worker, trust me). They don't need choke hold avoidance training - there never was a choke hold. I do think if we want to avoid reoccurrences of these kinds of incidents the cops should be trained in the recognition of the early symptoms of opiate overdose.

  3. What Steve really means is Putting Out a Fire with Gasoline, but he didn’t want to use David Bowie’s words.

    BTW, don’t try lighting a fire with gasoline. It is explosive. I made that mistake once and luckily only singed my hair and eyebrows. I was lighting a big pile of slash (branches cut from trees.) Use diesel, which is similar to lighter fluid, kerosine and, believe it or not jet fuel. It lights slowly.

    When Match-light charcoal first came out, I bought some and poured it into the grill ... then for good measure, I poured a little petrol over it. My neighbour didn't see that last part. She asked if that was the new match-light charcoal and how well it worked, to which I replied, "I dunno ... this is my first time using it." Then I stood back about four feet and threw the match in. Whoosh!

    She gasped and said, "Oh my! That's too strong for me!" I bet she didn't use match-light charcoal for at least a decade after that.

    Not quite. Diesel is similar to #2 fuel oil, aka home heating oil (#2 oil is dyed red to indicate that it is not legal to use in road vehicles - diesel fuel is taxed). Jet fuel is similar to kerosene. Lighter fluid is usually naphtha, which is in between gasoline and kerosene in volatility. #2 oil is less volatile than kerosene and will not burn in a liquid state at room temperature (you can douse a match with it) so it is safer than kerosene.

    So in order of decreasing volatility (flash point - the point where the fuel gives off vapors that will burn) you have:

    1. Gasoline
    2. Naphtha /lighter fluid/Stoddard solvent/mineral spirits.
    3. Kerosene / jet fuel
    4. #2 fuel oil/ diesel fuel

    All of these things are somewhat approximate because petroleum products are not a single hydrocarbon but blends of many different hydrocarbon molecules with a range of weights. To add to the confusion, these products have different names in different countries.

    Incidentally, the movie for which that song was made (the 1982 remake of Cat People with Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell) was directed by Paul Schrader, best known for writing Taxi Driver and Raging Bull.

    Despite his Jewish-sounding name, Schrader is not a member of the tribe. His parents were strict Calvinists of Dutch and German background. They did not approve of his career choice. When he made it big in Hollywood, his mother wrote him a letter saying, "Father and I will miss you in heaven."

    Kinski spends much of the film in various states of undress. She had an affair with Schrader during filming but broke up with him shortly before the end of principal photography. In retaliation, he threatened to humiliate her by including extensive close-up shots of her crotch in the final cut. She ran crying to producer Ned Tanen, who intervened, saying that he was not going to release an X-rated movie. (The theatrical release, which included a copious amount of full frontal nudity, was a very hard R.)

    It also brings to mind the two black girls who ‘went missing’ in Milwaukee. Who BLM protestors in a matter of minutes determined had been abducted (By white men, no doubt) for sex trafficking and whose crack team of hackers traced their phones to a house they claim they never went near. Actually the house was the local ‘Boo Radley’ residence and the mothers believed their daughters had been brought there for sex trafficking rather than run off with local boys. They later burned the whole house down. (It was a nice one too, video in link) And they shot two guys accidentally in their attempt to rescue the girls.

    https://www.tmj4.com/news/local-news/home-and-van-burned-two-teens-shot-amid-anger-over-house-connected-to-crime

    They claim the ‘police did nothing’ but it had been a matter of hours and apparently did actually check the house and the police were otherwise occupied with something, I can’t remember what…

    It turns out the girls were out in the early hours of the morning with boys. Probably not the kind of boys their mothers would approve of them doing that with. Almost like that is the cause of all the ‘missing children’ (Read: Teenage girls) that night and every other night…

    Thanks for the link, could make for some narrative maintenance issues but still alot of unknowns. A house was torched by a mob. Probably a black owner/resident? Place was suspected of being scene of multiple child abductions that appear to have been resolved without police involvement. Is the suspicion justified? Were the girls really missing?

    Dream scenario for the current year: house belongs to a Mexican who probably didn't abduct anyone, but was regarded as creepy by neighborhood kids because of stereotypes.

    I'll say this: if they rescued a handful of neighborhood kids and then burned down some pedo's house, I'll have to reconsider my reservations on the whole community policing thing. Maybe Qanon has been targeting the wrong audience all this time.

  5. I still wonder why the Übermenschen of Madison simply wouldn’t use their Flammenwerfendenschniedels (a Nazi superweapon if ever there was one) to set her afire. Much more efficient than lighter fluid and lighters.

  6. Good article. I found this sentence especially droll:

    By Monday, society, fashion, and Jewish magazines … were all over the story.

    Congrats on the million page views, Steve. Last time that happened was during the Fauxcahontas genetic test, right? That was a fun time.

  7. The whole project of forced integration was supposed to make race relations bette and Black people happier. Golly, did that happen?

    Nixon used federal power to desegregate states against the will of the citizens.

    That’s what Really Smart people do. They work a separate peace for themselves while throwing the rest of their group into misery. Sure, tens of thousands of White girls were raped and molested since the Ivy Leaguers forced integration, but, really, most of the victims were proles right?

    By the way, the whole plan of trying to use science and argument to convince elites to be more rational has been a colossal failure. Although, Charles Murray did get himself invited to those Bilderberg meetings. I know a pat on the head from that crowd means so much to him.

Yesterday, curiously, as I looked at the day-old-page in the browser and loaded the new one, I noticed that the total went up by just over 400 deaths, while the little ticker said "+500" odd people. That was kind of curious,...

    We're gonna really have to rally, folks, to get it up to 130,000, and I think we should just give up on 150,000 till next year. We gave it our best shot. Next year, we'll get better doctors, who take this game more seriously.

    I have seen posts where people claim that they were contacted by contact tracers and informed that they were now "COVID cases", simply because they were known to have been in proximity at one time with somebody who subsequently tested positive. I have also heard it claimed that anyone who checks into a hospital for whatever reason, and who has or is subequently found to have had, corona virus is counted as a "COVID hospitalization". These are just anecdotal accounts on the web at this point. But then so were allegations that deaths were being over-counted, which fact has essentially been admitted by public health authorities.

    Dane county has had 32 deaths and 214 hospitilized. But given that the university is closed and the governments have basically been working from home, it appears that Dane County was successful in controlling the spread of Covid-19 until around Jun 20. The graph also shows what a slight increase in R can do for a pandemic.

  12. Steve,

    I think your explanation of this situation is exactly right. A young girl made a stupid mistake, got caught in something she didn’t expect, and then compounded it by lying.

    If a middle aged man like me told a similarly incendiary lie, swift justice is the only reasonable outcome. But for an 18 year old, one would hope that America is still civilized enough of a place to recognize the principle of “let him among you without sin cast the first stone.”

    What America needs is reconciliation. Without that there is no hope for the country. Surely smarter people than I who read this blog can figure out how to make this a chance to reduce the anger, instead of ruining an 18 year old’s life and adding to the animosity of the country.

    If this young woman was involved in an arson attack (which she probably was) she deserves to be punished to the full extent of the law. She is not a child and arson is no laughing matter. People can become trapped in burning buildings, firefighters can be severely injured or die fighting them. Arson is not just a property crime. Each time you set an arson fire you are endangering human lives and it deserves to be punished as seriously as any other crime that involves endangering life.

I don't see how "reconciliation" can apply to a lawyer who thinks that property destruction is legal but self-defense is not, or a shrieking rioter who thinks that the Constitution enables her to attack police vehicles.

    Seriously: reconciliation is impossible. Each of the 5 major genetic divisions of Homo Sapiens is adapted to the society it has lived in for the past several thousand years, all the while mutating at a great rate to adopt to its own society. European descended Whites have spent everything they have, and borrowed about as much, trying for reconciliation (C. Caldwell, _The Age of Entitlement_). There is no more to spend.
    Reconciliation is rejected by all four of the other major genetic divisions (African, Middle Eastern Whites, East Asian, American Indian), and for good reason -- they can no more succeed in European White society than European Whites could succeed in theirs. This mutual incompatibility is what is meant by the term "racism".
    The next step proposed in attempted reconciliation is to abandon industrial society and let whichever group can grab them to impose their society over areas now held by the European Whites. This next step is not reconciliation, and it is profoundly evil: it is genocide.

    I think a pretty good rule for female hoaxers, whether accusing men or arson or rape, is that the hoaxer should suffer EXACTLY the same penalty as the accused. If a woman falsely accuses a man of rape, and rape carries a penalty of up to fifteen years in prison, then she gets up to fifteen years in prison. If the woman falsely accuses four men of assault, and assault carries a three to five year prison term, then she should be sentenced to 3-5 years.

    First, I consider myself a moderate and think that the frequent separationist talk on here is insane (even if you could divide America into Red and Blue halves as neatly as separating a Czech from a Slovak, what happens when the next batch of 110-ish IQ IYI’s are all grown up in Red America, seeking social advancement through new forms of virtue signaling all over again?). Thus I agree some form of reconciliation or consensus is ultimately needed.

    However:

    * this 18 year old is legally an adult
    * her lies could have (may yet) lead to retaliatory attacks on innocents; a young white woman was burned to death during BLM 1.0
    * lots of white teens and preteens have already had their lives ruined for edgy jokes or simply the effrontery of repeating rap lyrics on antisocial media

    If she didn’t, then she could’ve said that she didn’t see her attackers and she doesn’t have any description of them at all. She made a point of claiming they were young white men. I am the parent of two young white men and I take offense. I won’t forgive unless she retracts and apologizes to the public and to white men in particular.

    Tawanna Brawley was only 16 and accused I believe 5 White men by name and one committed suicide because of it.

    Of all the truly vicious things the NYSLIMES ever did, the persecution of 5 innocent White men in the Tawanna Brawley case was the worst.

  13. The only story I could find on this incident from yesterday is from that hard hitting news source Elle.

    As they helpfully tell us, “here’s everything you need to know.”

    She suffered second- and third-degree burns and will need additional medical care.

    I assume a Go Fund Me to cover medical costs and so she wouldn’t have to work was part of the appeal of the fabricated story. There are three different Go Fund Me campaigns started for Althea, in total, they have only raised $8,917 so far. The primary fundraiser that says it is family approved claims the funds are going to an animal shelter. What is the reason for the rabid left to not donate to this cause, Anti-Semitism? Understanding it is a hoax and not wanting to admit it?

    Madison police spokesperson Joel DeSpain said that police are working to access Bernstein’s hospital records and investigators are looking if the incident was captured on surveillance cameras.

    I wonder how good the cameras outside the jail are. Even in the dark, it shouldn’t be that hard to identify her at the riot, which would blow her whole story apart.

    “Our department believes victims, and we take their statement and then thoroughly investigate what they said happened to them,” DeSpain told CNN. “We believe this victim, and we are going to work with her and review all the video we can find.”

    Putting out a statement that “we believe the victim” is a perfectly normal part of every investigation. It says the call from Meghan Markle lifted her spirits. Sounds like it was all worth it in the end, at least so far. If Dane county gets into the a sticky situation where it is obvious she is guilty of attempted arson, she might have to rethink things.

    The call center had to be evacuated, but at least the fire was put out before the 180 inmates burned to death.

    Black inmates lives don’t matter? (Some may have just been in the pokey for DUI.) I’m guessing an 18-y/o doesn’t really understand the pain that results from burns (till she screwed up her face during the riot), as I didn’t at that age. We set multiple fires, other than camporee bonfires, some on purpose and some not. I set a friend hair on fire with a lighter, but knocked it out with my hand really quick. I don’t think he even knew until I mentioned it.

    By the way, for ten weeks, as you may recall, the Establishment told everybody that the current pandemic was the worst thing in the history of the world.

    Oh, they are back at it again. CASES are up. No, not deaths, they’ve almost leveled at 130,000 in America, but CASES are up. C’mon guys! It’s so simple. Maybe you need a refresher course. It’s all CASES nowadays! (With a big assist from the great Dr. Ron Paul.)

    They’ve about leveled out, Buzz, at least in the US. I have been following these numbers lately, just due to this unintentional(?) experiment in the issuance of COVID waivers to certain privileged people for 5 weeks now*. Yesterday, curiously, as I looked at the day-old-page in the browser and loaded the new one, I noticed that the total went up by just over 400 deaths, while the little ticker said “+500” odd people. That was kind of curious,…

    We’re gonna really have to rally, folks, to get it up to 130,000, and I think we should just give up on 150,000 till next year. We gave it our best shot. Next year, we’ll get better doctors, who take this game more seriously.

    Apparently the only source for the lighter fluid claim is the girl herself, reporting what the hospital supposedly told her. I don’t think the hospital can talk to the cops. And how would a doctor be able to tell that lighter fluid specifically was the cause of a burn?

    Also, I saw a comment that it wasn’t a second degree burn. Google Images seems to agree: it barely looks like a first degree burn. On the other hand, wouldn’t lighter fluid cause more of a burn?

    She also said she needs to get skin removal surgery to prevent scarring. But it seems to be fading pretty fast just over a few days. Would a hospital recommend cosmetic surgery for such a minor thing?

    Finally, I’d like to see a comprehensive investigative story about GoFundMe, its procedures and checks, who can start a campaign, and a historical accounting of GoFundMe campaigns for supposed victims of racist attacks over the past five years.

    The images and the statements are entirely consistent, if one assumes that the second degree burns are on her hands. Perhaps an attempted arson attack literally "blew up in her face," causing first degree burns on her face and second degree on her hands or arms. Such an act, of course, would constitute at least attempted arson and likely attempted murder.

    "Law enforcement" officers including jailers tend to take a dim view of attempts on their lives, and unlike the masses who ingest their daily MSM-Soma, will not just forget the episode within two or three days.

  23. On the other hand, you can dredge up the police shooting of a black man that happened ten months ago and report it as if it were a current event, as the media is doing with Elijah McClain in Colorado.

    Or you can report that when the police release videos of a shooting within 24 hours, as was done in San Diego this past weekend, which show that the black man was pointing a revolver at the police before they fired at him, that the early release has an ulterior motive. The “community leader” claims the release was not done out of “a sense of transparency,” but for the purpose of preventing riots.

    It didn’t prevent riots. He was armed and pointing a gun at police because he was poor and “his state and his government did not provide him with the resources he needed,” according to one protestor. Another declared, weeping, that “him having a gun didn’t matter, they should have incapacitated him without shooting him.” There is no point in fighting this battle based on reason.

    Use diesel, which is similar to lighter fluid, kerosene and, believe it or not jet fuel. It lights slowly.

    Not quite. Diesel is similar to #2 fuel oil, aka home heating oil (#2 oil is dyed red to indicate that it is not legal to use in road vehicles – diesel fuel is taxed). Jet fuel is similar to kerosene. Lighter fluid is usually naphtha, which is in between gasoline and kerosene in volatility. #2 oil is less volatile than kerosene and will not burn in a liquid state at room temperature (you can douse a match with it) so it is safer than kerosene.

    So in order of decreasing volatility (flash point – the point where the fuel gives off vapors that will burn) you have:

    1. Gasoline
    2. Naphtha /lighter fluid/Stoddard solvent/mineral spirits.
    3. Kerosene / jet fuel
    4. #2 fuel oil/ diesel fuel

    All of these things are somewhat approximate because petroleum products are not a single hydrocarbon but blends of many different hydrocarbon molecules with a range of weights. To add to the confusion, these products have different names in different countries.

    Flame Spread rate

    Flash Point
    the minimum temperature at which a liquid gives off vapor within a test vessel in sufficient concentration to form an ignitable mixture with air near the surface of the liquid. The flash point is normally an indication of susceptibility to ignition.

    Gasoline, with a flash point of -40°C (-40°F), is a flammable liquid. Even at temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F), it gives off enough vapor to form a burnable mixture in air.

    Phenol is a combustible liquid. It has a flash point of 79°C (175°F), so it must be heated above that temperature before it can be ignited in air, flame spread rate of combustible liquids usually less than flammable liquids..

    Diesel is a combustible liquid.

    The only disadvantage to heating your house with diesel fuel is the cost because the diesel fuel is heavily taxed. But as I said earlier, it's basically #2 fuel oil, minus the dye and plus a few additives.

    These products are somewhat interchangeable, up to a point. You can also run a diesel engine on kerosene (though it lacks lubricating qualities and is bad for the fuel pump). You can run a Coleman stove or lamp on either Coleman fuel (a form of light naphtha) or on gasoline.

    But only up to a point. Running your gas car on diesel fuel - not a good idea. Putting gasoline in your kerosene lamp - an extremely bad idea. Lighting your grill with gasoline - another bad idea. Knowing what that point is is important - your eyebrows, your life or the life of your expensive possessions could depend on it.

    Thank you, Mr. Wizard.

    When waiting a little while for a contractor to come and convert our house to natural gas, I substituted diesel from a local gas station for home heating oil, rather than filling the tank with an order of heating oil we weren't going to use. I brought the diesel home in my five-gallon container, and it worked fine.

    When living in a log cabin, I used diesel from a nearby farm in my kerosene lamps. It worked fine.

    When lighting slash piles in the the Rockies for the Forest Service, we used diesel. It worked fine.

    For my purposes, as I meant, your numbers 2,3 and 4 work fine (though I don't think I'd try lighter fluid to heat a house.)

    The only disadvantage to heating your house with diesel fuel is the cost because the diesel fuel is heavily taxed. But as I said earlier, it’s basically #2 fuel oil, minus the dye and plus a few additives.

    These products are somewhat interchangeable, up to a point. You can also run a diesel engine on kerosene (though it lacks lubricating qualities and is bad for the fuel pump). You can run a Coleman stove or lamp on either Coleman fuel (a form of light naphtha) or on gasoline.

    But only up to a point. Running your gas car on diesel fuel – not a good idea. Putting gasoline in your kerosene lamp – an extremely bad idea. Lighting your grill with gasoline – another bad idea. Knowing what that point is is important – your eyebrows, your life or the life of your expensive possessions could depend on it.

    Gasoline in my kerosene lamps? You are out of your mind, and I never, ever would suggest that.

    I know what we are talking about, and I will not let you get away with this, you SOB.

    My mistake with gasoline was a very long time ago, when I was a teenager, before I knew these things, and I honestly described what happened. It was obvious in my writing that I do not consider gasoline as a substitute for the others.

    I did not say that gasoline is similar to the others, and yet now, after I already made that clear, you proceed to write as if I did.

    You are being deceptive.

    You should read comments more carefully before you condescend to lecture someone who clearly has more experience than you actually have using these things -- unless, of course, your intent is to deceive. At present there is great suspicion that that is actually what your intent is.

    Of course, as others have noted, throwing gas on a burning fire is guaranteed to give a satisfying (or terrifying as the case may be) WHOMP! and should not really be done at all but if you insist then only from a safe distance and using a container with a mouth as wide as its body so there's no hang up.

    But many's the time I've doused a pile of unburning wood with gasoline--"fire water" as we called it in Scouts--and let it sit for three minutes or so, long enough for all the really volatile compounds to evaporate off, and then lit it with a flaming bit of paper thrown on as I scooted by. No WHOMP! But it still won't burn as long as kerosene.

  46. I don’t have a better source for this but the story if true is pretty relevant. A hotel worker claims she was fired after attempting to presume to speak to a Queen. Because preventable black drownings outnumber what the terrorist group Black Lives Matter is ostensibly protesting about, the sight of unattended black children playing at a hotel pool should be alarming. Trying to find the parent or parents, this employee came across a black woman sitting in her car in the parking lot. The conversation didn’t go well and the police were called. After the police showed up the Queen deigned to answer the god-damned questions and prove that she was staying at the hotel, which shows that calling the police on uncooperative blacks works and should happen more often.

    At around 40 seconds in there is an edit in the video. Right after the edit the Black woman tells the clerk, "That's not true". It's hard to make out what the clerk is saying but she points at the pool and one of the words you can hear her say is 'liable'. The clerk must have been pointing out the woman was in her car and not supervising her kids while they were in the pool, which is probably against policy. Either the Black woman or this YouTube channel edited out this part of the conversation since they knew how badly it would reflect on her. Also, refusing to give your name to the cops will only make them think you have something to hide. At any given time is the average Black person actually unaware of whether or not they have an arrest warrant out or a suspended license or something else that will get them in trouble with the law? Must be an exhausting way to live.

I have also heard it claimed that anyone who checks into a hospital for whatever reason, and who has or is subequently found to have had, corona virus is counted as a “COVID hospitalization”. These are just anecdotal accounts on the web at this point. But then so were allegations that deaths were being over-counted, which fact has essentially been admitted by public health authorities.

    Seriously: reconciliation is impossible. Each of the 5 major genetic divisions of Homo Sapiens is adapted to the society it has lived in for the past several thousand years, all the while mutating at a great rate to adopt to its own society. European descended Whites have spent everything they have, and borrowed about as much, trying for reconciliation (C. Caldwell, _The Age of Entitlement_). There is no more to spend.
    Reconciliation is rejected by all four of the other major genetic divisions (African, Middle Eastern Whites, East Asian, American Indian), and for good reason — they can no more succeed in European White society than European Whites could succeed in theirs. This mutual incompatibility is what is meant by the term “racism”.
    The next step proposed in attempted reconciliation is to abandon industrial society and let whichever group can grab them to impose their society over areas now held by the European Whites. This next step is not reconciliation, and it is profoundly evil: it is genocide.

    I had no intention to deceive you or anyone and nothing to gain by my casual remarks. Take them for what they are worth or leave them -it's all the same to me.

    When I was a kid we used to get gas delivered to the farm. We had a 200 gal. above ground tank with a hand cranked pump. One day the delivery driver filled the tank with diesel instead of gasoline. We filled the car with it and went for a trip. It actually ran OK but then when it was time to shut the car off it did not shut off but kept running (badly)for a long time , emitting big clouds of white smoke. I forget now how we even got it to stop. The fuel company paid for the dealer to drain the tank and purge the fuel system but surprisingly it did no lasting damage to the engine - we had that car for many years after that with no problems.

    Of course cars were simpler then with no fancy variable valve timing or electronics and it was a V-8 with a heavy iron block (the same car as Teddy Kennedy took for a swim at Chappaquiddick). I don't know whether a modern engine would take that kind of abuse and survive.

    I think a pretty good rule for female hoaxers, whether accusing men or arson or rape, is that the hoaxer should suffer EXACTLY the same penalty as the accused. If a woman falsely accuses a man of rape, and rape carries a penalty of up to fifteen years in prison, then she gets up to fifteen years in prison. If the woman falsely accuses four men of assault, and assault carries a three to five year prison term, then she should be sentenced to 3-5 years.

    Use diesel, which is similar to lighter fluid, kerosene and, believe it or not jet fuel. It lights slowly.
     
    Not quite. Diesel is similar to #2 fuel oil, aka home heating oil (#2 oil is dyed red to indicate that it is not legal to use in road vehicles - diesel fuel is taxed). Jet fuel is similar to kerosene. Lighter fluid is usually naphtha, which is in between gasoline and kerosene in volatility. #2 oil is less volatile than kerosene and will not burn in a liquid state at room temperature (you can douse a match with it) so it is safer than kerosene.

    So in order of decreasing volatility (flash point - the point where the fuel gives off vapors that will burn) you have:

    1. Gasoline
    2. Naphtha /lighter fluid/Stoddard solvent/mineral spirits.
    3. Kerosene / jet fuel
    4. #2 fuel oil/ diesel fuel

    All of these things are somewhat approximate because petroleum products are not a single hydrocarbon but blends of many different hydrocarbon molecules with a range of weights. To add to the confusion, these products have different names in different countries.

    Replies: @Buzz Mohawk, @Buroaker

    Flame Spread rate

    Flash Point
    the minimum temperature at which a liquid gives off vapor within a test vessel in sufficient concentration to form an ignitable mixture with air near the surface of the liquid. The flash point is normally an indication of susceptibility to ignition.

    Gasoline, with a flash point of -40°C (-40°F), is a flammable liquid. Even at temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F), it gives off enough vapor to form a burnable mixture in air.

    Phenol is a combustible liquid. It has a flash point of 79°C (175°F), so it must be heated above that temperature before it can be ignited in air, flame spread rate of combustible liquids usually less than flammable liquids..

    Diesel is a combustible liquid.

    More and more, children and young people have less and less experience with things like this. Mostly this has happened for two reasons:

    1) Efforts to increase safety, at the expense of experience.

    2) Increasingly insulated, urban or suburban living, in which children never get to explore and experience the fascinating things we commonly did a few short decades ago.

    This is like making yourself less able to fight illness by living too cleanly, never allowing your body to get a little dirt and stuff and develop its own defenses.

    (Or, perhaps, it is like shutting down young people in a misguided attempt to fight coronavirus?)

    I feel sorry for today's American children, especially the White ones. They are sitting ducks, or innocent weak sheep -- who don't know what may await them -- and who are not physically prepared for the common dirtiness of life.

    Believe me, you can light all the fires you want, safely, with nothing but diesel dripped from a five-gallon diesel fuel container; in fact I recommend it. You just have to provide your own match or lighter. Gee, how hard is that?

    Are you a relation of Mitt Romney’s? Do you hope to clerk for John Roberts? Is the wallpaper on your iPhone a beefcake glamor shot of Rod Dreher?

    First, I consider myself a moderate and think that the frequent separationist talk on here is insane (even if you could divide America into Red and Blue halves as neatly as separating a Czech from a Slovak, what happens when the next batch of 110-ish IQ IYI’s are all grown up in Red America, seeking social advancement through new forms of virtue signaling all over again?). Thus I agree some form of reconciliation or consensus is ultimately needed.

    However:

    * this 18 year old is legally an adult
    * her lies could have (may yet) lead to retaliatory attacks on innocents; a young white woman was burned to death during BLM 1.0
    * lots of white teens and preteens have already had their lives ruined for edgy jokes or simply the effrontery of repeating rap lyrics on antisocial media
    * SHE WAS NOT EVEN ASKED FOR YOUR [email protected] FORGIVENESS!!

    Mainstream conservatives, sitting on a stool in their corners graciously accepting apologies from phantom people of color…

  78. Since there is some discussion on volatility/flammability, I’ll repeat my comment from earlier…

    In general people think things are easier to light than they are. Contrary to the movies, flicking a cigarette at a trail of petrol won’t set it alight. Lighter fluid is much more flammable I assume, [seems not?] though I don’t have personal experience with it, yet watch this black man try, and fail, to light a trail of lighter fluid(?). (you won’t see someone burned alive, but you will see someone on fire and struggle to remove burning clothes if you watch too long)

    If she only had a few patches of burn on her face there can’t have been much fumes to light.

    Movies not only make things look easy to light, but make it look trivially easy to aim throws. Most people are not very good at throwing something at a small target. Not to mention the lighter probably has to hit the right way round unless there are a lot of fumes to ignite.

    Maybe I’m wrong and it is easy to spray some lighter fluid on something and then light it by throwing a lighter, but I am dubious.

    I had no intention to deceive you or anyone and nothing to gain by my casual remarks. Take them for what they are worth or leave them -it's all the same to me.

    When I was a kid we used to get gas delivered to the farm. We had a 200 gal. above ground tank with a hand cranked pump. One day the delivery driver filled the tank with diesel instead of gasoline. We filled the car with it and went for a trip. It actually ran OK but then when it was time to shut the car off it did not shut off but kept running (badly)for a long time , emitting big clouds of white smoke. I forget now how we even got it to stop. The fuel company paid for the dealer to drain the tank and purge the fuel system but surprisingly it did no lasting damage to the engine - we had that car for many years after that with no problems.

    Of course cars were simpler then with no fancy variable valve timing or electronics and it was a V-8 with a heavy iron block (the same car as Teddy Kennedy took for a swim at Chappaquiddick). I don't know whether a modern engine would take that kind of abuse and survive.

    I don't have a better source for this but the story if true is pretty relevant. A hotel worker claims she was fired after attempting to presume to speak to a Queen. Because preventable black drownings outnumber what the terrorist group Black Lives Matter is ostensibly protesting about, the sight of unattended black children playing at a hotel pool should be alarming. Trying to find the parent or parents, this employee came across a black woman sitting in her car in the parking lot. The conversation didn't go well and the police were called. After the police showed up the Queen deigned to answer the god-damned questions and prove that she was staying at the hotel, which shows that calling the police on uncooperative blacks works and should happen more often.
    So: let blacks ignore rules everyone else has to follow, even if it means dead children.

    Let’s separate the “adult” world from the criminal. Mr. Floyd was a junkie and a criminal who held a gun to the belly of a pregnant woman during a home invasion. That is all you need to know about him.

    BTW, the cops didn’t kill him, at least not intentionally. The were following the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) they were taught (and which quite possibly might have come from Israel.) That piece of human trash, who happened to work in porn, died of his own causes, whatever they were.

    Kids need to be taught more about fire safety. Schools might be reluctant to do this, since they might be accused of encouraging “playing with fire”; but if they don’t, more people will make the mistake of lighting charcoal or rubbish with gasoline.

    Replies: @Buzz Mohawk

    More and more, children and young people have less and less experience with things like this. Mostly this has happened for two reasons:

    1) Efforts to increase safety, at the expense of experience.

    2) Increasingly insulated, urban or suburban living, in which children never get to explore and experience the fascinating things we commonly did a few short decades ago.

    This is like making yourself less able to fight illness by living too cleanly, never allowing your body to get a little dirt and stuff and develop its own defenses.

    (Or, perhaps, it is like shutting down young people in a misguided attempt to fight coronavirus?)

    I feel sorry for today’s American children, especially the White ones. They are sitting ducks, or innocent weak sheep — who don’t know what may await them — and who are not physically prepared for the common dirtiness of life.

    Speaking of OT, but on-topic in the broader sense, Claira Janover, the recent Harvard graduate who threatened on social media to stab anyone who utters the words "All Lives Matter," has had a job offer from Deloit withdrawn.

    The government and psychology major (this alone is disconcerting) had earlier released a video in which she, by way of analogy, declared to All Lives Matter advocates “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.'”

    As unpleasant as they are to watch, her teary, bitter, self-aggrandizing and self-pitying statements in the wake of this dismissal offer a strange fascination. Granted, she's young. But given her level of unquestioning rancor toward anyone who constitutes a political opponent -- she seems to feel that Trump supporters should, en masse, be burned at the stake or buried alive -- it's hard to feel much pity, and I suspect that another lucrative and "self-actualizing" job offer is coming her way in the near future.

    And toward the firm which now declines to hire her, she offers this:


    I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” she said. “That you were cowardice [sic] enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”
     
    An elephantine ego buttressed by cliches. I'm sure she'll "have an impact" on all our lives soon enough.

    I'm an old fashioned guy. To my way of thinking, things like prostitution and stripping are immoral and degrading.

    As I've mentioned on a few occasions, I run a conservative study group on my campus. It's a place where White students can meet and discuss the "Rightist" tradition in art, literature, and film. A few semesters back, a first year student joined our group. We had a bit of a debate about inviting her into the group. Obviously, a "Whites Only" group would attract the local Eye of Sauron, so we keep things "off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush." The girl has a few tattoos (all the other girls in the group are un-inked) and worked as a stripper for a while. All of those things are red flags, but her sponsors in the group felt that she was worth the risk, and we extended an invitation. She's turned out to be a fine girl, and I think that belonging to our little organization has helped her close the book on a dark chapter in her life.

    BTW, “immorality,” as determined by you or anyone else, is not the same thing as criminality, no matter how much you or anyone else might want it to be.

    The board action also calls for officers to give up their uniforms and patrol off campus, and will lead to the layoffs of 65 officers in the 471-employee department. The money saved will be allocated to fund staff to specifically serve the needs of Black students and a task force that will study ways to re-imagine the issue of student and campus safety.

    … the resolution also would require officers to be unarmed and would prohibit the use of pepper spray….

    … Garcia added an amendment that would bar the school district from replacing the school police by contracting with the Los Angeles police, the county sheriff’s department or a private security force …

As adolescents, Black youth start to notice how they are subtly and not so subtly moved out of public spaces and are seen as “dangerous” when they gather outside. Imagine how anxious you would feel if the police, and other institutions, were watching you all the time

    I’m an old fashioned guy. To my way of thinking, things like prostitution and stripping are immoral and degrading.

    As I’ve mentioned on a few occasions, I run a conservative study group on my campus. It’s a place where White students can meet and discuss the “Rightist” tradition in art, literature, and film. A few semesters back, a first year student joined our group. We had a bit of a debate about inviting her into the group. Obviously, a “Whites Only” group would attract the local Eye of Sauron, so we keep things “off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.” The girl has a few tattoos (all the other girls in the group are un-inked) and worked as a stripper for a while. All of those things are red flags, but her sponsors in the group felt that she was worth the risk, and we extended an invitation. She’s turned out to be a fine girl, and I think that belonging to our little organization has helped her close the book on a dark chapter in her life.

    Actually, prostitution is illegal in many places. Cheating on your spouse, no. Stripping, no, as long as you comply with the rules. In Colorado, where I was dating these girls at the time, they could strip down to a G-string if alcohol was being served, completely naked if not. Funny rule if you think about it. God forbid those drunk guys should see a pussy.

    One girl stripped in a private room, down to her pink, for one man at a time. I dated her, and she told me the stories. One repeat customer was that guy we all see advertising his furniture store during the cheap, late night spots. There's one in every metropolitan area, and he was ours. He masturbated furiously in front of her while she displayed her genitalia close to his face. No touching! She marveled at how men like him reacted.

    She was a graduate student. Her father was the city manager for a major east coast city. If I told you which one, you would laugh. She had only one tattoo, a smiley face high up on an inner thigh. She said it meant, "Thank you. Come again."

    Gavin McInnes talks about sharing an apartment with two sex workers (though I think they were phone operators): at the end of a month or two, they had a new contempt of men which altered their personalities.

  113. Wife tells me about a recent incident in Houston that I wish she hadn’t. Nail shop owner and her daughter were robbed by four black men who proceeded to gang rape both of them. The girl was only 17 and will likely never recover. You can imagine the national meltdown that would happen if four white men robbed a AA weave shop and gang raped the mother and daughter. The hoax about the girl being abused by 4 racist white boys get national attention but this real crime gets zero publicity. Not to mention the stupid Nascar driver’s “noose” and countless other fake outrages against blacks.

    When I have visited Houston (and lived there a year) there has been a constant pattern of black-on-viet crime, like 16 year old pizza shop worker shot dead for nothing. Teenage girl raped and beaten into a vegetative coma. etc etc.

    Wife earlier was listening to a viet nail shop owner in Tulsa recounting his ordeal just a few days ago. And as I was writing this told me of yet another incident of some black woman and her friends robbing and beating a nail shop owner unconcious, who had to wait an hour for police because they are afraid of BLM!

    I have allowed her to go to Houston on occasion to help with her sister’s restaurant but that is going to cease.

    The support for Donald Trump among the Vietnamese both in the U.S. and in Vietnam has skyrocketed. Wife bugs me to get her registered to vote. Everyone in her family and all her friends are now pro-Trump, quite a change from 4 years ago.

    Maybe I’m missing something. I simply don’t get. When I first saw the video of George Floyd’s arrest I was shocked. The narrative with the video said the cops killed him with a choke hold. I was outraged.

    But then I remembered that I’m something of a minor expert on choke holds. I took two semesters of Judo in college. In class we all made efforts to make choke holds. Good way to end a match. I had also once while horsing around as a teenager choked out my neighbor. That was George Smith father of the famous screenwriter Ebbe Smith. He dared me and I put on a simple choke. He dropped like he’s been shot between the eyes. I was sure I’d killed him. Scared the hell of of me.

    The outlawed cop choke hold was used because it worked so fast and effectively on large, dangerous and violent suspects. This we all learned in the Rodney King incident. Experts came forward and testified that Rodney King who could not be subdued by multiple Taser hits could have been quickly subdued with the choke hold. The choke with the baton worked much better than Tasers or rubber bullets but had been disallowed by many police departments after a couple cases where it had killed the suspect inadvertently. In a vigorous scuffle it was all to easy to kill. Good policy, no choke holds.

    The point is George Floyd was not choked. He talked for seven minutes on camera. Impossible if you’re being chocked. If the choke occludes the carotids you go down immediately. If it just cuts off your air you can hardly be expected to talk. All of this should be well known and not controversial yet it is never heard on mainstream media.

    Another thing you never see on TV News is any mention as to why he was being restrained. Yes, restrained not choked. Why did the cops need to restrain him? Possibly because they were a little afraid. They were definitely afraid of Rodney King in LA. George Floyd was six six. Bigger than the so called “Gentle Giant” who attacked a cop in Ferguson. The knee on the neck wasn’t some improvised torture the rogue cops had thought up on the spot. They had been trained to do this hold at the Police Academy to restrain possibly dangerous suspects. I think they may have overreacted. There may have been some personal animus. Floyd was a career criminal and well known to at least some of them. But they did not, as far as I can tell, do anything against police policy or anything illegal.

    The most confusing part of the media reaction is that the autopsy done soon after death indicated that Floyd had three times the fatal dose of Fentenyl in his veins. I’m told that in the part of the video not broadcast before he was arrested he was complaining that he couldn’t breathe. He did so after the cop has his foot on his neck but he had been complaining of his inability to get enough air when the cops first arrived. If all this is true then Floyd was having an OD before the arrest. His overdose was certainly fatal without immediate medical intervention. He was therefore a suicide not the victim of a murder. When the cops came up to him he was “a dead man walking”.

    Maybe I’m wrong about all this but if so where are all the experts on TV newscasts explaining away all the public facts which seem to point to cops who should be exonerated and a junkie criminal who overdosed? The hysteria around the cops seems bizarre. They don’t need to be replaced by social workers (absolutely crazy – I’m an ex-social worker, trust me). They don’t need choke hold avoidance training – there never was a choke hold. I do think if we want to avoid reoccurrences of these kinds of incidents the cops should be trained in the recognition of the early symptoms of opiate overdose.

    No, you're not wrong. The "chokes" (whether compressing the arteries in the neck or the wind pipe) were not an issue in the deaths.

    And yes, banning them is stupid because they are actually a relatively low violence way of rendering people unconscious. Now more people are going to get beaten or tased instead.

    In fact both of these men might be alive today if the cops HAD choked them out early on.

    Both of them died of heart attacks which were caused be a combination of:
    clogged arteries
    drugs
    and stress from:
    -being arrested
    -fighting with the police
    -positional asphyxia (just being on your stomach with hands cuffed behind your back makes it hard to breathe. If you're fat it can kill you. if there are people holding you down it can kill you)

    However it's not clear that the dose of fentanyl he had was lethal. From what I've read the effective concentration and the lethal concentration vary a lot based on individual adaptation. His blood concentration want that high that it was clearly dangerous. It may have been just fine for him.

    , @Jim Don Bob

    A cop's choices used to be
    1) night stick
    2) choke hold
    3) taser
    4) gun

    The first two have been banned because bad things happened occasionally, so now the cop starts at #3, and worse things happen.

    You are being deceptive.

    It seems to me he suffered mostly from growing up as a child of divorce (or perhaps his parents never married); and his mother (Patti Paradise – I’m not making this up) going through multiple marriages. One stepfather dropped him off at Little League and never came back, which really is a species of nasty. So he’s unstable from that.

    The mothers of these guys all seem so similar. Their half-black sons are like trophies, or pets.

    I think your explanation of this situation is exactly right. A young girl made a stupid mistake, got caught in something she didn’t expect, and then compounded it by lying.

    If a middle aged man like me told a similarly incendiary lie, swift justice is the only reasonable outcome. But for an 18 year old, one would hope that America is still civilized enough of a place to recognize the principle of “let him among you without sin cast the first stone.”

    What America needs is reconciliation. Without that there is no hope for the country. Surely smarter people than I who read this blog can figure out how to make this a chance to reduce the anger, instead of ruining an 18 year old’s life and adding to the animosity of the country.

    I had no intention to deceive you or anyone and nothing to gain by my casual remarks. Take them for what they are worth or leave them -it's all the same to me.

    When I was a kid we used to get gas delivered to the farm. We had a 200 gal. above ground tank with a hand cranked pump. One day the delivery driver filled the tank with diesel instead of gasoline. We filled the car with it and went for a trip. It actually ran OK but then when it was time to shut the car off it did not shut off but kept running (badly)for a long time , emitting big clouds of white smoke. I forget now how we even got it to stop. The fuel company paid for the dealer to drain the tank and purge the fuel system but surprisingly it did no lasting damage to the engine - we had that car for many years after that with no problems.

    Of course cars were simpler then with no fancy variable valve timing or electronics and it was a V-8 with a heavy iron block (the same car as Teddy Kennedy took for a swim at Chappaquiddick). I don't know whether a modern engine would take that kind of abuse and survive.

    I also worked for the Forest Service - for 30 years - and the lighting tool - a drip torch - will not work properly on pure diesel. It requires a bit of gasoline, I think about one part gasoline to four parts diesel, to work. You couldn't light the thing if the tank was filled with all diesel.

    Replies: @Buzz Mohawk, @ThreeCranes

    I’ve burned a lot of brush piles and I concur, Doctor. Mix a bit of gas with the diesel. The gas to get things going and diesel to keep it burning.

    Of course, as others have noted, throwing gas on a burning fire is guaranteed to give a satisfying (or terrifying as the case may be) WHOMP! and should not really be done at all but if you insist then only from a safe distance and using a container with a mouth as wide as its body so there’s no hang up.

    But many’s the time I’ve doused a pile of unburning wood with gasoline–“fire water” as we called it in Scouts–and let it sit for three minutes or so, long enough for all the really volatile compounds to evaporate off, and then lit it with a flaming bit of paper thrown on as I scooted by. No WHOMP! But it still won’t burn as long as kerosene.

    Agreed on the WHOMP, 3-Cranes, but I like to hear that from about 8 ft back or more - I'm talking small fires to burn paper trash. What I do is pour the gas on first, then (put the freakin' gas can WAY out of the way, before I forget to tell you that!) take a piece of balled up paper, light it, and throw it in as your about to run like hell. That works fine, and gets the adrenaline up.

    (OH, I just read your last paragraph about the paper, OK, we're on the same "page".)

    Anyway, what was fun one time with some nearly rotten wood that wouldn't stay burning (no I don't pour gas on while it's going) was turning on the (electric) leaf blower. You've got your not-so-great fuel, you've got your heat, but then that Oxygen on full blast. Man, it sounded like a jet engine inside the fire! I highly recommend this to any and all firebugs reading today.

    Incidentally, the movie for which that song was made (the 1982 remake of Cat People with Nastassja Kinski and Malcolm McDowell) was directed by Paul Schrader, best known for writing Taxi Driver and Raging Bull.

    Despite his Jewish-sounding name, Schrader is not a member of the tribe. His parents were strict Calvinists of Dutch and German background. They did not approve of his career choice. When he made it big in Hollywood, his mother wrote him a letter saying, “Father and I will miss you in heaven.”

    Kinski spends much of the film in various states of undress. She had an affair with Schrader during filming but broke up with him shortly before the end of principal photography. In retaliation, he threatened to humiliate her by including extensive close-up shots of her crotch in the final cut. She ran crying to producer Ned Tanen, who intervened, saying that he was not going to release an X-rated movie. (The theatrical release, which included a copious amount of full frontal nudity, was a very hard R.)

    Actually, prostitution is illegal in many places. Cheating on your spouse, no. Stripping, no, as long as you comply with the rules. In Colorado, where I was dating these girls at the time, they could strip down to a G-string if alcohol was being served, completely naked if not. Funny rule if you think about it. God forbid those drunk guys should see a pussy.

    One girl stripped in a private room, down to her pink, for one man at a time. I dated her, and she told me the stories. One repeat customer was that guy we all see advertising his furniture store during the cheap, late night spots. There's one in every metropolitan area, and he was ours. He masturbated furiously in front of her while she displayed her genitalia close to his face. No touching! She marveled at how men like him reacted.

    She was a graduate student. Her father was the city manager for a major east coast city. If I told you which one, you would laugh. She had only one tattoo, a smiley face high up on an inner thigh. She said it meant, "Thank you. Come again."

    Since there is some discussion on volatility/flammability, I’ll repeat my comment from earlier…

    In general people think things are easier to light than they are. Contrary to the movies, flicking a cigarette at a trail of petrol won’t set it alight. Lighter fluid is much more flammable I assume, [seems not?] though I don’t have personal experience with it, yet watch this black man try, and fail, to light a trail of lighter fluid(?). (you won’t see someone burned alive, but you will see someone on fire and struggle to remove burning clothes if you watch too long)

    If she only had a few patches of burn on her face there can’t have been much fumes to light.

    Movies not only make things look easy to light, but make it look trivially easy to aim throws. Most people are not very good at throwing something at a small target. Not to mention the lighter probably has to hit the right way round unless there are a lot of fumes to ignite.

    Maybe I’m wrong and it is easy to spray some lighter fluid on something and then light it by throwing a lighter, but I am dubious.

    My mistake with gasoline was a very long time ago, when I was a teenager, before I knew these things, and I honestly described what happened. It was obvious in my writing that I do not consider gasoline as a substitute for the others.

    I did not say that gasoline is similar to the others, and yet now, after I already made that clear, you proceed to write as if I did.

    You are being deceptive.

A few semesters back, a first year student joined our group. We had a bit of a debate about inviting her into the group. Obviously, a "Whites Only" group would attract the local Eye of Sauron, so we keep things "off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush." The girl has a few tattoos (all the other girls in the group are un-inked) and worked as a stripper for a while. All of those things are red flags, but her sponsors in the group felt that she was worth the risk, and we extended an invitation. She's turned out to be a fine girl, and I think that belonging to our little organization has helped her close the book on a dark chapter in her life.

    BTW, “immorality,” as determined by you or anyone else, is not the same thing as criminality, no matter how much you or anyone else might want it to be.

    Steve,

    I think your explanation of this situation is exactly right. A young girl made a stupid mistake, got caught in something she didn’t expect, and then compounded it by lying.

    If a middle aged man like me told a similarly incendiary lie, swift justice is the only reasonable outcome. But for an 18 year old, one would hope that America is still civilized enough of a place to recognize the principle of “let him among you without sin cast the first stone.”

    What America needs is reconciliation. Without that there is no hope for the country. Surely smarter people than I who read this blog can figure out how to make this a chance to reduce the anger, instead of ruining an 18 year old’s life and adding to the animosity of the country.

    I don't have a better source for this but the story if true is pretty relevant. A hotel worker claims she was fired after attempting to presume to speak to a Queen. Because preventable black drownings outnumber what the terrorist group Black Lives Matter is ostensibly protesting about, the sight of unattended black children playing at a hotel pool should be alarming. Trying to find the parent or parents, this employee came across a black woman sitting in her car in the parking lot. The conversation didn't go well and the police were called. After the police showed up the Queen deigned to answer the god-damned questions and prove that she was staying at the hotel, which shows that calling the police on uncooperative blacks works and should happen more often.
    So: let blacks ignore rules everyone else has to follow, even if it means dead children.

    They’d get a whole lot more people on their side if they’d focus on the actual power structure of our society rather than doing the plutocrats’ bidding by making everything into a race war.

    But since the plutocrats own the media it’s unlikely to go anywhere. Also why not just visit Park Avenue? Much more convenient and you’ll draw a larger crowd.

    Since Bernstein’s story hinges on her being inside her car at the time of the fire that burned her, has a journalist produced any proof this? Perhaps I’m betraying my near-total ignorance about fires, but if the assault occurred as she describes it, wouldn’t you expect evidence in the form of some singeing in the car interior? Maybe some drops of lighter fluid that entered the car interior and didn’t ignite?

    The other thing that little attention has been paid to is that two Jewish groups have offered to double the Crime-Stoppers reward(link). This is particularly odd, given that Bernstein herself hasn’t made any claims about her supposed assailants making anti-Semitic threats, only using racial language. Unless she was blasting klezmer on her car stereo, I don’t think anyone would look at Bernstein and think she was Jewish.

    Some of the money came of a division of a pro-Israel advocacy group, and the rest from the family foundation of a Jewish Colorado housing developer whose organization donates almost exclusively to Jewish causes according to Propublica’s charity navigator.

    Try to imagine the reaction if a white woman claimed she was assaulted by four black men and AMREN’ teamed up with the Gates Foundation to offer a reward for information leading to the perps’ arrest. The NYT editorial board would need to retire to its fainting couch.

    Tawanna Brawley was only 16 and accused I believe 5 White men by name and one committed suicide because of it.

    My recollection is that he committed suicide for some personal reason unrelated to Brawley. His name was connected to the Brawley case because he physically resembled her description of her main assailant. Steven Pagones was dragged into the case because he was a personal friend of the man who committed suicide. Because Pagones was employed as a prosecutor, the Duchess County DA recused himself and the state Attorney-General took over the case. The grotesque spectacle which ensued consisted of Alton Mattox, Vernon Mason, and Al Sharpton trying to mau mau the state Attorney-General (Robert Abrams). I think Mattox or Mason or both were eventually disbarred. Sharpton was allowed by the courts of the State of New York to get away without paying the defamation judgment against him. (A member of Sharpton's staff went public in the middle of it to inform the world that Sharpton knew perfectly well Brawley was lying).

    The government and psychology major (this alone is disconcerting) had earlier released a video in which she, by way of analogy, declared to All Lives Matter advocates “I’ma stab you, and while you’re struggling and bleeding out, I’ma show you my paper cut and say, ‘My cut matters, too.’”

    And toward the firm which now declines to hire her, she offers this:

    I’m sorry, Deloitte, that you can’t see that,” she said. “That you were cowardice [sic] enough to fight somebody who’s going to make an indelible change in the world and is going to have an impact.”

    At around 40 seconds in there is an edit in the video. Right after the edit the Black woman tells the clerk, “That’s not true”. It’s hard to make out what the clerk is saying but she points at the pool and one of the words you can hear her say is ‘liable’. The clerk must have been pointing out the woman was in her car and not supervising her kids while they were in the pool, which is probably against policy. Either the Black woman or this YouTube channel edited out this part of the conversation since they knew how badly it would reflect on her. Also, refusing to give your name to the cops will only make them think you have something to hide. At any given time is the average Black person actually unaware of whether or not they have an arrest warrant out or a suspended license or something else that will get them in trouble with the law? Must be an exhausting way to live.

    But then I remembered that I'm something of a minor expert on choke holds. I took two semesters of Judo in college. In class we all made efforts to make choke holds. Good way to end a match. I had also once while horsing around as a teenager choked out my neighbor. That was George Smith father of the famous screenwriter Ebbe Smith. He dared me and I put on a simple choke. He dropped like he's been shot between the eyes. I was sure I'd killed him. Scared the hell of of me.

    The outlawed cop choke hold was used because it worked so fast and effectively on large, dangerous and violent suspects. This we all learned in the Rodney King incident. Experts came forward and testified that Rodney King who could not be subdued by multiple Taser hits could have been quickly subdued with the choke hold. The choke with the baton worked much better than Tasers or rubber bullets but had been disallowed by many police departments after a couple cases where it had killed the suspect inadvertently. In a vigorous scuffle it was all to easy to kill. Good policy, no choke holds.

    The point is George Floyd was not choked. He talked for seven minutes on camera. Impossible if you're being chocked. If the choke occludes the carotids you go down immediately. If it just cuts off your air you can hardly be expected to talk. All of this should be well known and not controversial yet it is never heard on mainstream media.

    Another thing you never see on TV News is any mention as to why he was being restrained. Yes, restrained not choked. Why did the cops need to restrain him? Possibly because they were a little afraid. They were definitely afraid of Rodney King in LA. George Floyd was six six. Bigger than the so called "Gentle Giant" who attacked a cop in Ferguson. The knee on the neck wasn't some improvised torture the rogue cops had thought up on the spot. They had been trained to do this hold at the Police Academy to restrain possibly dangerous suspects. I think they may have overreacted. There may have been some personal animus. Floyd was a career criminal and well known to at least some of them. But they did not, as far as I can tell, do anything against police policy or anything illegal.

    The most confusing part of the media reaction is that the autopsy done soon after death indicated that Floyd had three times the fatal dose of Fentenyl in his veins. I'm told that in the part of the video not broadcast before he was arrested he was complaining that he couldn't breathe. He did so after the cop has his foot on his neck but he had been complaining of his inability to get enough air when the cops first arrived. If all this is true then Floyd was having an OD before the arrest. His overdose was certainly fatal without immediate medical intervention. He was therefore a suicide not the victim of a murder. When the cops came up to him he was "a dead man walking".

    Maybe I'm wrong about all this but if so where are all the experts on TV newscasts explaining away all the public facts which seem to point to cops who should be exonerated and a junkie criminal who overdosed? The hysteria around the cops seems bizarre. They don't need to be replaced by social workers (absolutely crazy - I'm an ex-social worker, trust me). They don't need choke hold avoidance training - there never was a choke hold. I do think if we want to avoid reoccurrences of these kinds of incidents the cops should be trained in the recognition of the early symptoms of opiate overdose.

    Actually, prostitution is illegal in many places. Cheating on your spouse, no. Stripping, no, as long as you comply with the rules. In Colorado, where I was dating these girls at the time, they could strip down to a G-string if alcohol was being served, completely naked if not. Funny rule if you think about it. God forbid those drunk guys should see a pussy.

    One girl stripped in a private room, down to her pink, for one man at a time. I dated her, and she told me the stories. One repeat customer was that guy we all see advertising his furniture store during the cheap, late night spots. There's one in every metropolitan area, and he was ours. He masturbated furiously in front of her while she displayed her genitalia close to his face. No touching! She marveled at how men like him reacted.

    She was a graduate student. Her father was the city manager for a major east coast city. If I told you which one, you would laugh. She had only one tattoo, a smiley face high up on an inner thigh. She said it meant, "Thank you. Come again."

    No, you’re not wrong. The “chokes” (whether compressing the arteries in the neck or the wind pipe) were not an issue in the deaths.

    And yes, banning them is stupid because they are actually a relatively low violence way of rendering people unconscious. Now more people are going to get beaten or tased instead.

    In fact both of these men might be alive today if the cops HAD choked them out early on.

    Both of them died of heart attacks which were caused be a combination of:
    clogged arteries
    drugs
    and stress from:
    -being arrested
    -fighting with the police
    -positional asphyxia (just being on your stomach with hands cuffed behind your back makes it hard to breathe. If you’re fat it can kill you. if there are people holding you down it can kill you)

    However it’s not clear that the dose of fentanyl he had was lethal. From what I’ve read the effective concentration and the lethal concentration vary a lot based on individual adaptation. His blood concentration want that high that it was clearly dangerous. It may have been just fine for him.

    Tawanna Brawley was only 16 and accused I believe 5 White men by name and one committed suicide because of it.

    Replies: @Art Deco

    My recollection is that he committed suicide for some personal reason unrelated to Brawley. His name was connected to the Brawley case because he physically resembled her description of her main assailant. Steven Pagones was dragged into the case because he was a personal friend of the man who committed suicide. Because Pagones was employed as a prosecutor, the Duchess County DA recused himself and the state Attorney-General took over the case. The grotesque spectacle which ensued consisted of Alton Mattox, Vernon Mason, and Al Sharpton trying to mau mau the state Attorney-General (Robert Abrams). I think Mattox or Mason or both were eventually disbarred. Sharpton was allowed by the courts of the State of New York to get away without paying the defamation judgment against him. (A member of Sharpton’s staff went public in the middle of it to inform the world that Sharpton knew perfectly well Brawley was lying).

    But many's the time I've doused a pile of unburning wood with gasoline--"fire water" as we called it in Scouts--and let it sit for three minutes or so, long enough for all the really volatile compounds to evaporate off, and then lit it with a flaming bit of paper thrown on as I scooted by.

    Agreed on the WHOMP, 3-Cranes, but I like to hear that from about 8 ft back or more – I’m talking small fires to burn paper trash. What I do is pour the gas on first, then (put the freakin’ gas can WAY out of the way, before I forget to tell you that!) take a piece of balled up paper, light it, and throw it in as your about to run like hell. That works fine, and gets the adrenaline up.

    (OH, I just read your last paragraph about the paper, OK, we’re on the same “page”.)

    Anyway, what was fun one time with some nearly rotten wood that wouldn’t stay burning (no I don’t pour gas on while it’s going) was turning on the (electric) leaf blower.

    I gotta laugh, Achmed. When I was young and foolish I bought an old jalopy for 100 bucks or so.

    Being the genius I am, I figured that, having sat so long, the only way to get it running was to siphon out the old and put in new, fresh gasoline.

    So I scrounged up an old section of garden hose and sucked on the end till I got a good mouthful of stale gasoline and tried to put the end down into a can fast enough not to lose siphon but....no go. I tried three times before I became weary of the taste of gasoline and bethought myself a better way--I would use a vacuum cleaner to create the suction!!! What could possibly go wrong?

    And I had just the vacuum cleaner. One of those small tubular canister types made just for vacuuming out cars. Not the expensive metal one, just a cheap plastic one.

    So I held the end of the intake hose to the end of the garden hose, forming a kinda seal with my hand and flipped the switch. Varoooom! Wow!!! A tongue of flame about four feat long was roaring out of the exit at the rear of the tubular vac. And it roared just like a jet. It WAS a jet. The sparks from the brushes neatly igniting the volatile, vaporized gases.

    I threw the thing down and scurried away, thinking that the entire tank might blow. But nothing happened. The poor vac just sat on the ground with the plastic exhaust grid alight with a feeble yellow orange flame, giving off black smoke. I put it out of its misery with a few handfuls of sand.

    Amazingly enough, the vacuum still ran, although it always bore the scars of disfigured, melted plastic on its posterior; scars which excited my wife's curiosity of course. "Oh that? Nothing dear, must have overheated."

    Apparently the only source for the lighter fluid claim is the girl herself, reporting what the hospital supposedly told her. I don't think the hospital can talk to the cops. And how would a doctor be able to tell that lighter fluid specifically was the cause of a burn?

    Also, I saw a comment that it wasn't a second degree burn. Google Images seems to agree: it barely looks like a first degree burn. On the other hand, wouldn't lighter fluid cause more of a burn?

    She also said she needs to get skin removal surgery to prevent scarring. But it seems to be fading pretty fast just over a few days. Would a hospital recommend cosmetic surgery for such a minor thing?

    Finally, I'd like to see a comprehensive investigative story about GoFundMe, its procedures and checks, who can start a campaign, and a historical accounting of GoFundMe campaigns for supposed victims of racist attacks over the past five years.

    The images and the statements are entirely consistent, if one assumes that the second degree burns are on her hands. Perhaps an attempted arson attack literally “blew up in her face,” causing first degree burns on her face and second degree on her hands or arms. Such an act, of course, would constitute at least attempted arson and likely attempted murder.

    “Law enforcement” officers including jailers tend to take a dim view of attempts on their lives, and unlike the masses who ingest their daily MSM-Soma, will not just forget the episode within two or three days.

    The only story I could find on this incident from yesterday is from that hard hitting news source Elle.

    As they helpfully tell us, "here's everything you need to know."

    She suffered second- and third-degree burns and will need additional medical care.
     
    I assume a Go Fund Me to cover medical costs and so she wouldn't have to work was part of the appeal of the fabricated story. There are three different Go Fund Me campaigns started for Althea, in total, they have only raised $8,917 so far. The primary fundraiser that says it is family approved claims the funds are going to an animal shelter. What is the reason for the rabid left to not donate to this cause, Anti-Semitism? Understanding it is a hoax and not wanting to admit it?

    Madison police spokesperson Joel DeSpain said that police are working to access Bernstein’s hospital records and investigators are looking if the incident was captured on surveillance cameras.
     
    I wonder how good the cameras outside the jail are. Even in the dark, it shouldn't be that hard to identify her at the riot, which would blow her whole story apart.

    “Our department believes victims, and we take their statement and then thoroughly investigate what they said happened to them," DeSpain told CNN. "We believe this victim, and we are going to work with her and review all the video we can find."
     
    Putting out a statement that "we believe the victim" is a perfectly normal part of every investigation. It says the call from Meghan Markle lifted her spirits. Sounds like it was all worth it in the end, at least so far. If Dane county gets into the a sticky situation where it is obvious she is guilty of attempted arson, she might have to rethink things.

His name was connected to the Brawley case because he physically resembled her description of her main assailant. Steven Pagones was dragged into the case because he was a personal friend of the man who committed suicide. Because Pagones was employed as a prosecutor, the Duchess County DA recused himself and the state Attorney-General took over the case. The grotesque spectacle which ensued consisted of Alton Mattox, Vernon Mason, and Al Sharpton trying to mau mau the state Attorney-General (Robert Abrams). I think Mattox or Mason or both were eventually disbarred. Sharpton was allowed by the courts of the State of New York to get away without paying the defamation judgment against him. (A member of Sharpton's staff went public in the middle of it to inform the world that Sharpton knew perfectly well Brawley was lying).

    Thanks for the information. I could see Tawanna picking random White criminals out of the mug books and claiming they were her assailants. But I never understood how her descriptions of generic early middle aged White men resulted in specific White men being accused.

    The NYSLIMES and Sharpton are as entwined as Britain and the royal family.

    I saw a comment that it wasn’t a second degree burn. Google Images seems to agree: it barely looks like a first degree burn. On the other hand, wouldn’t lighter fluid cause more of a burn?

    She also said she needs to get skin removal surgery to prevent scarring.
     

    The images and the statements are entirely consistent, if one assumes that the second degree burns are on her hands. Perhaps an attempted arson attack literally "blew up in her face," causing first degree burns on her face and second degree on her hands or arms. Such an act, of course, would constitute at least attempted arson and likely attempted murder.

    "Law enforcement" officers including jailers tend to take a dim view of attempts on their lives, and unlike the masses who ingest their daily MSM-Soma, will not just forget the episode within two or three days. In this case, the jail inmates will be entirely on the same page as their jailers - being barbecued in one's cell can't be fun.

    If she had burns on her hands there’d be pictures all over the internet too. Second degree burns heal just fine without scouring off the burnt necrotic dead tissue.

    It’s obvious she read a few mednet.com things about burns and mixed up treatment for serious burns and dead tissue with first aid treatment for first degree burns.

    Not necessarily. Her mother and/or a lawyer may have cautioned her against publicizing any injury to her hands.

    Also, teenage girls like to have their face photographed and published, not their hands.

    Perinton is a high class suburb, but this is near a low income housing neighborhood, so I’d say this is 50-50. The swastika is backwards, so I’d usually lean “hoax” but the lines are very well sprayed and not the usual quick, sloppy dyslexic swastika, so I’m hedging my bets.

    Of course, as others have noted, throwing gas on a burning fire is guaranteed to give a satisfying (or terrifying as the case may be) WHOMP! and should not really be done at all but if you insist then only from a safe distance and using a container with a mouth as wide as its body so there’s no hang up.
     
    Agreed on the WHOMP, 3-Cranes, but I like to hear that from about 8 ft back or more - I'm talking small fires to burn paper trash. What I do is pour the gas on first, then (put the freakin' gas can WAY out of the way, before I forget to tell you that!) take a piece of balled up paper, light it, and throw it in as your about to run like hell. That works fine, and gets the adrenaline up.

    (OH, I just read your last paragraph about the paper, OK, we're on the same "page".)

    Anyway, what was fun one time with some nearly rotten wood that wouldn't stay burning (no I don't pour gas on while it's going) was turning on the (electric) leaf blower. You've got your not-so-great fuel, you've got your heat, but then that Oxygen on full blast. Man, it sounded like a jet engine inside the fire! I highly recommend this to any and all firebugs reading today.

    I gotta laugh, Achmed. When I was young and foolish I bought an old jalopy for 100 bucks or so.

    Being the genius I am, I figured that, having sat so long, the only way to get it running was to siphon out the old and put in new, fresh gasoline.

    So I scrounged up an old section of garden hose and sucked on the end till I got a good mouthful of stale gasoline and tried to put the end down into a can fast enough not to lose siphon but….no go. I tried three times before I became weary of the taste of gasoline and bethought myself a better way–I would use a vacuum cleaner to create the suction!!! What could possibly go wrong?

    And I had just the vacuum cleaner. One of those small tubular canister types made just for vacuuming out cars. Not the expensive metal one, just a cheap plastic one.

    So I held the end of the intake hose to the end of the garden hose, forming a kinda seal with my hand and flipped the switch. Varoooom! Wow!!! A tongue of flame about four feat long was roaring out of the exit at the rear of the tubular vac. And it roared just like a jet. It WAS a jet. The sparks from the brushes neatly igniting the volatile, vaporized gases.

    I threw the thing down and scurried away, thinking that the entire tank might blow. But nothing happened. The poor vac just sat on the ground with the plastic exhaust grid alight with a feeble yellow orange flame, giving off black smoke. I put it out of its misery with a few handfuls of sand.

    Amazingly enough, the vacuum still ran, although it always bore the scars of disfigured, melted plastic on its posterior; scars which excited my wife’s curiosity of course. “Oh that? Nothing dear, must have overheated.”

    Heh! Good story. I wouldn't have seen that coming either.

    OK, these friends of mine had one house with lots of siblings, 1/2 boys, and the Mom (Dad died long ago) was pretty old by then. She'd seen it all. She comes walking into the living room seeing two or three of the boys moving the couch outside the house. They'd set it on fire somehow, and were just nonchalantly moving it outside to continue the combustion process.

    Later, after they'd all moved out, they rented out that same house. Their (race-unspecified, so you know...) tenants had gotten the house 1/3 way burned down by doing something stupid. Unfortunately the brother who was in charge had not kept the insurance up. When these tenants moved out, they axed for their deposit back!
