  2. Hate. Pure hate is what is in store for white people. It has become manifest.

    This is real. People in media are pushing it. To those of you who cling to your crutch of “anti-semitism,” I give you Hatred of Whites, openly promoted by American media.

    Will you speak out against it? Will you say out loud what it is?

    Its two for one.

    They can virtue signal by condemning two groups.

    But they feel it is so safe to attack white and Catholic. They can’t use the term Catholic without instinctively bringing up pedo priests. They just have to get that in.

    That was my takeaway from the Gillette fiasco. That white males are perfectly safe to slander. So much so that the creator of the ad was oblivious to her racism.

    They should fear the backlash.

Translation: Alex Cranz spent her college years being the last minute drunken plaything of hot white frat guys who then never called her and instead dated and later married the prettier, slimmer, hotter blonde cheerleaders whom she could never equal no matter how hard she tried. Since she can’t have the hot white frat guys, she must destroy them.

    I went to a Jesuit boys high school that was good at sports and had lots of jocks. The Catholic high school students that went to the March for Life every January to protest abortion tended to be mostly girls and ordinary and often the more religious and earnest type of boys, not arrogant jock types as the media is trying to portray. And the kid in the video looks like he’s a bit nervous and embarrassed that he got involved in an awkward confrontation, not like some smirking jock.

  11. Smirkgate is pretty perfect.

    It is interesting that the smarter set among the journalist class, like Jake Tapper and David Brooks, are backpedaling pretty hard. The two hour long form Youtube video with the Black Israelite insane hateful rantings is going to upset the average joes out there. The media does not want you to see the full context. It doesn’t hurt that the Black Israelites hate Jews (the real ones) about as much as they hate everyone else. They are the most hateful people that I have ever engaged with and I am generally more than willing to listen to any old fool. I am more of a Moorish Science man myself to the tell the truth. They are of course long standing New York street corner crazies, but it saddens me see their hate seems to have spread all over the country.

    The Sandmann has apparently taken to Twitter and is defending himself. I hope he stands strong. The snakes fold in the face of truth, honor and God. Always will. If this is the seventeen year old’s Twitter account, much respect to the man.

    Is there any evidence suggesting that they are from a Catholic has anything to do with it? It seems to me all racial-political. Everything else (age, state, type of school) is incidental.

    IOW, they could have been White from any sort of school and gotten same treatment (possibly excl. a Jewish school; the cyber-lynchers likely would have passed on Jews).

  21. The Stuff of Legend* Kicks The Stuffing Out of the Bears?

    For a dwindling** number of Minnesotans, the name “Gronkowski” brings to mind the smirking face of Bronko Nagurski. Not so oddly, he never played for Denver. It would have been less than wise to have said to him, “Wipe that smirk off your face or I’ll wipe out your race.”
    From Wikipedia:
    “Nagurski was discovered and signed by University of Minnesota head coach Clarence Spears, who drove to International Falls [see “Frostbite Falls” of “Rocky &Friends”] to meet another player. On the outside of town, he watched Nagurski out plowing a field without assistance. According to legend*, Spears asked directions and Bronko lifted his plow and used it to point.[1] He was signed on the spot to play for the Golden Shower Gophers…” However, Spears chucked that account and “…admitted he concocted the story on his long drive back to the university in Minneapolis.”

    He finished his career with the Cincinnati Bengals before returning to his plow.

  26. Julian Edelman outs himself as an HBD devotee, or genetic determinist or Nazi or whatever:

    In the Patriots’ locker room a short while later, New England wide receiver Julian Edelman, who caught two overtime passes from Brady, said of his quarterback: “There’s no one I’d rather have in two-minute drill than No. 12. It’s in his DNA. He has a clutch gene.”

    I hear you, but this hatred, this attack on white people and white men, this blatant bullying of whites based on any physical appearance and whim, has never been so widely shouted across media before. In fact, sir, I have never in my life seen it like this before.

    Remember, people out there of all colors are impressionable. The Obama effect on Black violence is a good example.

    If we were Jews, we would be shouting from the rooftops with our fiddles, and media would be shouting with us 24/7. But we are not, so they do not.

    And people like you tell us to calm down.

    I have lived for over half a century in America, without worry, and I have never seen anything close to this much open hatred for, and major media bullying of, white people. The lack of outrage and support for us, the silence, is deafening.

    “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    Maybe the real outrage comes from progressives’ recognition that the Traditional Nice Guys are recovering their masculine self-confidence in the Trump era? Ten years ago, an earnest religious kid like you describe would have attempted a civil and logical debate with crazy left-wing protestors- a confrontation he would have lost, given the progressive bag of irrational, emotional, and dishonest argumentative tricks. Unintellectual jocks might have been a different story, but in 2009, activists could often browbeat nice young “Beta” provider-types into retreating or looking foolish.

    Based on his reaction, this kid learnt what everyone else has in the past decade- that the left is in the throes of some kind of manic collective hysteria, and can neither be reasoned nor compromised with, at least not until they calm down again. President Trump demonstrated the power of self-assured confidence against leftist mendacity and craziness; a MAGA hat boosts confidence like a winning team’s football jersey. Complaints about “privileged, arrogant jocks” might really be displaced leftist anger about losing their hold over formerly-submissive future-suburban-dads.

    I agree with you that being so specifically anti-white is a new development. And disturbing and dangerous.

    But I think it’s also obvious hysterical bs, collective exaggeration. Like condemning men as a whole because of the extreme feminist point men are all racists, rape culture, etc.

    I’m not telling you to calm down! Personally, I don’t like it, and I resist it where I can, but I also expect it to blow over at some point.

    In any case I don’t think comparing the situation to anti-Semitism is helpful. For one, because there would first have to be some mass executions of white people for the comparison to apply. Pace the Niemöller poem, preemptively shouting genocide is a bit much. Second, there’s a lot of excesses in the way the anti-Semitism accusation is used, as is well-documented on this site, so it’s not a good example to follow.

    Clown world. Maybe the Lord can send the angel of death to smite all the first born Haven Kavanaughs of the land. The sad thing is that almost every single megaphone-holder, narrative-shaper is some sort of bitter atomic wedgie survivor or maybe the epigenetic descendant of one (“as the granddaughter of atomic wedgie survivors on both sides…”). The fact that the 3 richest men in America are all sexually repulsive weirdos… sad that the strange social dynamics of American high schools, combined with the dominance of the tech economy, has created a situation where the psychologically most normal white kids end up socially and economically marginalized later in adult life, while the often still-resentful former high school outcasts become the social and economic elite, and because they are frankly most comfortable with non-whites (either with intellectual and sexual marketplace more on-par South and East Asians as workaday colleaguess, or docile, effectively mute Hispanics as menial workhorses, or else blacks as flashy pop icons who can be worshipped- but always at a safe remove- and star in their post-high school revenge fantasies- cf. all the sports fans whose favorite football team is I-Hate-New England and whose favorite college basketball team is [email protected]@k-Duke), we wind up in our current situation- normal whites powerless to stop their displacement, while their white elite “betters” cheerfully speed it on.

    The sadder thing is that the few psychologically healthy white males in power are too cowardly to do anything about it. Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, while you furtively hide your MAGA hats in the nooks and crannies of your locker room like a teenage boy stashing his PLAYBOY magazine, and devote your most virile years to obsessing over a boy’s game, it is teenage boys who are on the street actually fighting for our civilization, MAGA hats proudly and publicly on display. Where is Mitt Romney in all this? My stomach churns as I can guess what his response must surely be, and yet he himself was proto-Haven Kavanaugh’d for being a normal, good-looking white teenager. Remember the minor sh!t-storm over his supposedly bullying a gay private school classmate during the 2012 campaign? There was even, I’m positive, grainy photos of a teenage Mitt smirking all over th nightly news for a couple days. And yet I’m sure he’s itching to be the first to throw these boys under the bus- this Republican ur-responsible dad figure is just another fake-triarch.

    The Bears also have a black player named Eddie Goldman. I think he led the team in Sachs.

    I’m not telling you to calm down! Personally, I don’t like it, and I resist it where I can, but I also expect it to blow over at some point.

    True; that whole Nazi anti-semitism thing blew over, eventually. I mean, it went from defamation to incarceration, but eventually it blew over. Maybe we should just tell Jews “it’ll all blow over eventually,” next time they’re whingeing about antisemitism.

    On a more serious note, we are talking about the left, here. They’ve been dialing it up for like 70 years now. At some point one has to give up on the “it’ll all blow over” schtick and recognize that one is seeing a steady march toward gulags and mass graves.

    In any case I don’t think comparing the situation to anti-Semitism is helpful. For one, because there would first have to be some mass executions of white people for the comparison to apply. Pace the Niemöller poem, preemptively shouting genocide is a bit much. Second, there’s a lot of excesses in the way the anti-Semitism accusation is used, as is well-documented on this site, so it’s not a good example to follow.


    1. The holocaust includes mass incarceration, not just mass execution; read up if you’re confused.
    2. The Official Narrative that we’re all force-fed cradle to grave is that defamation of Jews=holocaust; one leads inevitably to the other. The second anyone criticizes Jews, it’s another Shoah. If you’ve missed this, you have some remedial reading to do.
    3. According to your logic, Jews in Europe had nothing to bitch about until 1942. They had no cause to object to Nazi/antisemitic defamation of Jews. And still have no cause to object today.
    4. So you want us to follow your rules, but Jews get to do whatever they like. Gotcha.

    Jews have no more cause for heated rhetoric than Whites do. And since we can’t stop Jews from releasing a steady stream of heated rhetoric, our best play is to match them.

    They have their shoah, we have our Holodomor, etc. History shows what happens when Whites tolerate leftist, censorious, authoritarian Jews having power over their societies.

    How did the objectively fascinating Black Israelites never have their own reality TV series?

    That infamous pool that closed when unannounced black kids showed up was a Jewish Community Center pool staffed by Jews. This was perfectly memory holed by the airing of antisemite Eric Cartman singing “There are too many minorities in my water park.”

  89. Gronkowski, however, is a public school boy, surprisingly enough.

    Woodland Hills High School in suburban Pittsburgh (Gronk’s alma mater) might actually be a good subject for an iSteve column. It was created by court order in the early 1980s and is black enough to be an athletic powerhouse but white enough to avoid the problems typical of ghetto schools.

    Anecdotally (I grew up near Pittsburgh and still have family there), I don’t recall ever hearing a white parent express fear of sending their kids to the school.

    They do get more hysterical and more destructive the further we get in time from the event, and eventually something will have to be done. If it’s not done intelligently in advance and by people predisposed to sympathy, then it will happen by itself, at the hands of the truly uncaring.

    The students in this incident may have been exonerated, but it has still not been proven that no Covington student or staff member, or anyone associated with Covington, has ever done anything morally problematic. I think it’s time to examine the entire life history of every Convington-linked person, to see if they are really perfectly pure.

    I’m sorry, I want to sympathize with your points, but to me they’re just incoherent.

    Regarding anti-Semitism, there are two subjects, one real and one fake:

    1) Historically real anti-Semitism and its consequences, including massive ethnic cleansing, incarceration, and killing of Jewish minorities during World War II.

    I don’t see the analogy with current anti-white, anti-white-male, anti-Christian discourse from SJWs, the culture in general, various minorities, women, and others. Who are the Germans/Nazis in this scenario? Who will do the ethnic cleansing, mass incarceration, etc.? (regarding your point 1., is there some mass incarceration of whites that I am missing?)

    I could (sort of) see an analogy with the very specific situation of whites in South Africa, but not with the situation of whites in Western societies.

    2) Spurious and hysterical claims of anti-Semitism when Jews are criticized, especially for being a powerful minority in Western societies, or in relation to Israel.

    I don’t see the point of imitating this kind of hysteria. If your enemy spouts falsehoods, it doesn’t seem like a good strategy to fight fire with fire by coming up with similar falsehoods. I disagree that “our best play is to match them”, I think that’s a losing play.

    Finally, regarding the march to gulags, sure, it’s a concern, it could happen again, but it’s crazy unlikely to me at this time, about as likely as shariah becoming the law of the land. We criticize the culture for its Orwellian tendencies in order to prevent totalitarianism, not because it’s going to happen any day now.

    I may be insufficiently red-pilled, and I know there’s plenty of worrisome trends (cultural, demographic, …), but I think we’re a long way from totalitarianism. People fight every day to defend free speech etc., and win/lose battles every day.
