Seth Smith, a 19-year-old undergrad at Berkeley, was gunned down a week ago. Nobody has been arrested yet, but Seth being guilty of Walking While White may turn out to be a motive. (Assuming anybody is still interested in 2020 in outdated concepts like “motive,” which, judging from the Delaware Veterans Cemetery murders in May, might be a big assumption.)

Chancellor Christ put out the following press release:

Campus mourns tragic death of third-year Berkeley student
JUNE 22, 2020

Chancellor Carol Christ sent the following message to the campus community on Monday:

Some of you are aware of the tragic death earlier this week of third-year UC Berkeley student Seth Smith. Seth was walking near his off-campus apartment on Dwight Way on Monday evening when he was shot and fatally wounded.

Seth was 19 years old, majoring in economics, and was due to graduate in spring 2021….

We realize this is a difficult time for those of you who knew Seth. It is important to know that individuals may express their grief differently and we need to respect the different ways people react and support each other in the days and weeks ahead. Many of you may have had a close relationship with Seth and are feeling a sense of loss and disbelief. Others, like many of us, are experiencing stress, grief and anxiety related to the coronavirus pandemic and the recent murders of George Floyd, Riah Milton, and other Black Americans.

Christ, that’s keeping it classy …

Seth Smith, Seth Rich, nobody cares compared to a real saint like Rayshard Brooks.

Don’t think of it as a murder, think of it as a White Privilegectomy.

    Her statement is gross and tone deaf beyond belief. The California college system is all in on BLM. I never saw so much campus email regarding a single current event as the emails my son got during his finals weeks about George Floyd bullshit. They were tacitly encouraging him to join the protests, too, and now we see, predictably, how that is working out with rising case rates in LA County. You couldn’t ask for a better super spreader event than enormous crowds of shouting people, but perhaps that was the plan all along.

    I think it was intended as a plug for the grief counseling unit at University Health Services, but it comes across as very crass victim one upsmanship. Kind of like, “too bad about the murder of your college friend, but how ’bout that pileup on the freeway last week? That was really bad!”

    Absolutely foul.

    Way to give the finger to one of your own students and his friend and family. Comparing the grief at the murder of a friend, a promising young man, to this slimy, political virtue signaling over these distant random and routine deaths of black lowlifes.

    And, of course, however bad the optics and mediocre the police response George Floyd was not “murdered”, he died of a heart attack from a drug overdose and whatever other issues he had. The trannie was murdered–by another black trying to steal from him.

    If Berkelites are experiencing “stress, grief and anxiety” over that, they are simply pathetic. It’s akin to grief over the sun coming up in the East. It’s our birthright as Americans to have high levels of black criminal violence going on in our nation. Blacks are killing people–fortunately mostly other blacks–on average 20-30 times a day. It’s unfortunate, but not new, or shocking and shouldn’t be causing any emotional reaction–other than an on-going generalized disgust/anger–unless it has hit someone you know. (Probably like Seth Smith.)

    Just a foul, preening, disloyal and disgusting statement.

    I seethe with hatred for these vermin. Hopefully we can peacefully separate and just be done with them. But if there is a civil war at some point, i’d have no remorse whacking their heads off and putting them on pikes. These people have made their choice and chosen to reject basic humanity–like honest grief–to wallow in their political filth. They are sub-human.

    Who precisely are the “you” and the “us” in this incredibly offensive virtue signal?

    By the way, I am praying the cops beat the rap in the Floyd case, just so they can spend the rest of their lives bringing defamation suits against every hack who said in print that they “murdered” St. Floyd.

That’ll show the public. Blue state governors have taken their ball and gone home. That’ll show trump. Trump is sitting in the Oval Office fiddling while America burns. His fingers are itching to dial up the military but the joint chiefs of staff are publicly defying leadership. Trumps handlers are telling him it’s politically imprudent. After all this is an election year. Trump needs to get some stronger cocaine and do a few lines, then tell his handlers to screw off and get to work.

    Also USC. I don’t understand this. You could build perfectly safe universities in campuses far away from any ghetto or urban area, with what they cost. Yet many seem to have been built downtown or in bad parts of town. Or did the “bad people” arrive later? In the case of the older universities, probably, but in the newer ones, I don’t know.

    I think cities in the US are really in a downward path. They are just not attractive anymore, and are becoming dangerous even to the liberals who love them.

    As for Universities, it is likely that some kind of online education will be the future.

    Instead of applying universal humanist principles & partly re-focusing media attention to black-on-white crime, too, black racism & identity politics as such, they’ve shown themselves to be not different from the degenerate herd, any race.

    This is a difficult time for Seth.

    I think Seth is beyond that now. Unless you mean some kind of after-life judgement.

    However, I agree with the rest. “Emotional fragility” is what is now college students are expected to feel every moment of their lives. I am not sure if that is not planned. Turning functional adults into a bunch of “snowflakes” running for “safe spaces” at the first sign of any attack to their ego. But, they make them worry only about things such as “racism” or “transphobia”, not real problems like the fact that they may be murdered near the campus.

    UC Berkeley students are now terrified that they might be gunned down if they choose to live in affordable off campus housing. What are you going to do to ensure your students aren’t going to “have had” their brains blown out?

    Yes, what’s striking also is that nothing is said in the note about security on campus, about the search for the murderer, about the cooperation with authorities or any important information that may make students feel more secure. No, it’s pandering to protesters who will make things probably even worse. I think many parents will change their mind about sending their kid to UC Berkeley.

    Dumbo, Yes, many parents will change their minds about sending their kids to UC Berkley. Some of those changes will be bright, concerned students who will go elsewhere and use some other school to get on with a successful life. Other changes will be parents (guardians? Associated adults??) who will decide that NOW is the time for their idiot children to get in on the white privilege of a degree from UCB. As the quality of the brand will decrease much faster than the reputation among the gullible, lazy curs who will attend, UC Berkley will be in business (not to provide a liberal education opportunity, but to separate the rubes from their Federally supplied tuition and book fees) for a long time. Until the new crowd figures out that they are still getting screwed and burns it down.

Ergo it was a dump with roaches and ramshackle elevators and peeling paint. I suppose it helped encourage the students to be moving on quickly when they were done with their degree. Certainly worked on me.

  91. I briefly taught at Upsala College, in East Orange, New Jersey. When I was there the College had an excellent reputation. It primarily served middle class, White, Christian/Lutheran students from the suburbs of New York City, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania. The college provided a good education and had several nationally recognized programs, particularly some of its foreign language majors and its premed program. The boast of the latter was that any student who successfully completed the program was guaranteed admission to a good medical school.

    Unfortunately, East Orange had begun the process of turning into a Negro slum during the year when I was there. Parents, who were planning that their children would attend Upsala, made visits to campus, saw what was happening, and were never heard from again. Enrollments plummeted. A wealthy alumnus saw what was happening and offered to buy a defunct college in out in the ‘burbs and pay for a relocation of the College,

    The President of the College at the time was a Lutheran minister and a classic bleeding heart liberal. He refused the offer with words to the affect that Upsala had a new mission, catering to the educational needs of the dusky hordes from Newark that were overwhelming the campus neighborhood.

    A decade or two ago I was watching a show, “Dirty Jobs”, which highlighted the necessary but onerous work that keeps civilization going. That week the show’s host was accompanying a crew that rescued architectural materials from buildings that were about to be demolished. That day’s work involved hacking into a set of buildings so overgrown and damaged by undergrowth and small trees that it resembled a Mayan ruin. At one point I had a sense of deja vu, which was confirmed a few seconds later when a swipe of a machete revealed the carving on a stone lintel, “Upsala College”. It was the entrance to the old dining hall.

    The host noted that Upsala had gone belly up decades before, its campus had been thoroughly vandalized, and the college buildings were now marked for demolition, to be replaced by some “urban renewal” projects.

    To paraphrase Trotsky, “You can ignore reality, progs, but reality will not ignore you.

    To be fair, in recent years at least, the universities located in ghettos realized that having their students murdered by the local vibrants was very bad for business. The University of Pennsylvania not only has its own sworn police force but also a large force of security guards. Penn has a security guard on every corner of the perimeter of its campus and extending out several blocks into the neighborhoods where the students live off campus. One national story about some grad student murdered in a mugging gone wrong might eliminate 5% of your applicant pool (more if it is a Chinese student and word gets back to Beijing, and the Chinese pay full list price for tuition) so it really paid to invest in security.

    We shall see if all of this withstands the BLM mania. Already the Penn Police have been expressly targeted for defunding by local “activists”. Why is Penn spending all of this money on policing, they ask. The administration is in no position to answer, “to prevent our colonists (oops I mean students) from being eaten by the local tribesmen.”

But *not one* of 17 did it! As it soon became clear, not one *could* do it, because all were essentially employees of powerful financial interests.

    To his credit, Hannity was among the first to jump the GOPe ship and hitch a ride with Trump. That was important. But he became too invested personally, and now relishes being point man of the President’s Praetorian Guard—again, an employee.

    Carlson (and Coulter) by contrast views Trump as *our* employee, who is failing to do the job he was hired to do.

No progressive mindset required to be angry; just a sense of decency and concern about police overreach. Is that why the media didn’t run 8 zillion stories about it?

    USC was built about 150 years ago in a very swanky area that was then gradually abandoned to crime and poverty. You can still see that splendor in some of the adjacent buildings, and the campus is lovely. The USC neighborhood actually got a bit better a few years ago, still a bit of a slum though but many students choose to save on commute and money and live in that area.

    And this is where he uses his plausible deniability. “Look, I graduated from UCLA, I live in So-Cal, and this murder is really sad”. All true. We all have outrage and sympathy. But the fact of the matter is his commentary was deliberately made in a similar manner as the chancellor–shoehorning an unquestionably tacky political-racial point into a piece of writing to promote an agenda. The last part of his piece was a dead giveaway, but if you choose to ignore that Sailent point, so be it.

    Furthermore, if Mr. Sailer is that concerned when it comes to law and order/the rule of law, which was inferred in this piece, then why not address recent national topics? He knows which ones I refer to, yet he takes the Noo Yawk Times approach to avoid NOTICING them.

    The random murder of a student of a top university near the campus is an indication that rule of law is in decline, more than a murder due to a drug deal gone bad is.

    Shitting on the murdered student’s memory the way the chancellor did is also a political statement. Mentioning the murder in passing, not mentioning it at all, mentioning it as “death”, as “killing”, or as “heinous, horrible murder”, is a political statement. Criticizing these statements is a political statement. Criticizing these criticisms of those statements, i.e. what you’ve been doing all along, is a political statement.

    Brand. The proper word is “brand”.

    “which is itself a political statement, no matter how loud you scream that you’re the genuine voice of reason.”

    I’m one of many voices of reason. And some of my statements are rooted in political commentary, or economic matters, or social concerns. It runs the gamut.

    “The random murder of a student of a top university near the campus is an indication that rule of law is in decline, more than a murder due to a drug deal gone bad is.”

    It is an indication of the continued violence in our nation. The rule of law refers to “principle under which all persons, institutions, and entities are accountable to laws that are: Publicly promulgated. Equally enforced. Independently adjudicated”. Certainly if and when the perpetrator is brought into custody he or she will be charged, found guilty (we presume), and be sent to the gas chamber (hopefully) or to prison (where he/she will rot).

    “Shitting on the murdered student’s memory the way the chancellor did is also a political statement.”

    In the same way as Sailer. Cannot you not discern the similarity?

    “Mentioning the murder in passing, not mentioning it at all, mentioning it as “death”, as “killing”, or as “heinous, horrible murder”, is a political statement.”

    Only if there is the proper context. Otherwise, it may be just a statement.

    “The only question is whether your political statements are the result of malice, useful innocence or brain malfunction. Whose side are you on?”

    My statements, whether it be political or non-political, are the result of analysis and reason. That is the side I am on. You?

    The Nazis thought that they were “pro-German” …

    They were.

    … but they left Germany a shattered and divided country so objectively what they did was “anti-German”.

    Only in armchair melodramatic retrospect. Of course, one has to weigh German losses against German wins—one could argue that the attrition of both the Holocaust and the killing of millions of Soviets weakened the far left’s potential power in Europe—and possibly prevented what could have been a midcentury total Communist wave sweeping across the whole continent.

    In an alt-timeline where the Germans did not ditch Weimar and embrace Nazism and total war, 20th-century history could have ended up far worse for Germans and Western Europeans in general …

    They got more Germans killed than any German regime in history. Territories that had been German for thousands of years were lost, probably forever.

    True, but the German people racked up more kills than their enemies, and still ended up in ethnic possession of the lion’s share of Greater Germany despite coming under occupation. Also note that Austria, basically part of Nazi Germany during the war, suffered little destruction and quickly regained its independence.

    Being in favor of racial purity is not the same thing as being “pro”.

    Literally, it is “pro” when considering jealous love for one’s volk.

    Results count.

    Germany did fine after the war, even under Soviet occupation in the East (which could have been worse).

    Edit- I meant to write Austria suffered “relatively little destruction”— compared to Germany. Vienna and other places were hit hard, but the civilian death toll for the whole country was not as bad, proportionately I believe, as Germany proper—Encyclopædia Britannica has it at 20,000 civilians (and 250,000 military deaths).

    “I am also ice cold here. If the German people are no longer strong enough and ready to sacrifice their own blood for their existence, then they must disappear and be destroyed by another stronger people… I would not shed a tear for the German people.”- Adolf Hitler, 1941.

    “If the war is lost, the people will be lost also. It is not necessary to worry about what the German people will need for elemental survival. On the contrary, it is best for us to destroy even these things. For the nation has proved to be the weaker, and the future belongs solely to the stronger eastern race. In any case, only those who are inferior will remain after this struggle, for the good have already been killed.” – Adolf Hitler, 1945.

    So a timeline where Germany did not lose territory that had been German for nearly 1000 years, ceased to be *the* center of world science and culture, and became a permanently diminished nation would somehow be better? Give me a break.

    They failed this galloping little narcissist, therefore they should be destroyed. In the end, Hitler cared about Germany insofar as it reflected on his own glory and posterity. He claimed Germany was his wife, but in reality, like Napoleon’s France, it was his mistress: and one in a relationship with a charismatic psychopath with a talent for seduction and destruction rather than an adventurer capable of building legal codes still used the world over. Because they failed to the fit vision he set for them, they might as well just die.

    Hitler was not a new Caesar, he was a new Attila.

    My comments were about the German embrace of Nazism, not Hitler’s (private) psyche. Although your cited Hitler quotes would be understandable today were he able to witness 21st-century Merkel’s Boner and was an anon blackpilled doompoaster.

    ceased to be *the* center of world science and culture

    A bit overstated. The center? Was there a center? The British Empire was still around, America was ascendant…

    and became a permanently diminished nation

    It appears you’re assuming a continuation/mutation of Weimar Germany would have been better for Germans than Nazification and eventual war. Hard to tell without knowing the alternate outcome(s). E.g., your preferred no-Hitler-as-Führer timeline might have ended up with the Soviets getting/inventing the nuclear bomb first and striking Western Europe and/or the United States.

    Yes, if I had to. But he can be arrested when he’s away from home.

    she [i.e., Breonna Taylor] was in the game. she was not innocent in any way.

    What “game”? Kindly elaborate.
