  1. It seems that COVID is truly over.

  2. I was watching the Wall Street Journal Editorial Report, when a News Alert cut into the 60-minute program, around 1/3 through. I lost the remaining 2/3 of this superb program to the hostage coverage. (except for the final 2 minutes at the end). The hostage coverage consisted of a camera focused on a police SUV with flashing lights, in the synagogue parking lot. It would be an anti-semitic hate crime not to devote 40 minutes to the SUV’s flashing lights, I guess.

    The same happened at Fox. I was watching Watters World's last show (he's going to weeknights) and 10 minutes in or so there's this footage of a car and a couple of cops and this endless narration. That was it for the whole show.

    Then when Judge Jeanine came on,the nonsense footage continued all through her show except she participated in it.

    5 minutes into this crap, I started thinking: this rates 2-sentence mention and then back to regularly scheduled programming. Why do we care what another nut with a gun is doing in some synagogue somewhere????????

    I could care less what the guy is, and all the best to the hostages. Now I want to see Jesse's last weekend show.

    Half of the Islamic world has been almost destroyed by European military activity in the last 20 years. Compare that to a smattering of comparatively small, amateurish terrorist incidents by Muslims against the West. And now Muslim countries are at risk of starvation.

    Odd that Belloc considered Islam to be a Christian heresy (or at least started out that way), rather than a separate religion in its own right. Kind of like how the Mormons originated out of particular strains of American Protestantism yet became something very different. Apparently many medieval Europeans felt the same way; Dante has Muhammad in the same part of Hell as the schismatics.

    On another note, I've always felt that Steven Spielberg named the principal villain in Raiders of the Lost Ark Rene Belloq to get back at Hilaire Belloc (who died in 1953) for what he wrote about the Jews.

    Small hats working feverishly to blame this attack on Whites.
     
    I) The Jews who actually wear the "small hats" (i.e., yarmulkes; skullcaps) more than just occasionally (i.e., the Orthodox), are the least likely to be anti-white.

    II) Most of the Jews who wear various styles of large (black) hats (i.e., the more traditional and fervently Orthodox, known as Haredim or, tendentiously, as "Ultra-Orthodox") are at a minimum de jure ideologically non-Zionist. A considerable number of Haredim are vehemently anti-Zionist.[1] A fringe subset of Haredi anti-Zionists are explicitly and actively pro-Palestinian.[2]

    Today's Haredi population include the descendants (both ancestral as well as ideological) of the anti-Zionist Jews who lived together peaceably with Muslims in the Holy Land prior to the Zionists' establishing the state that they call "Israel".

    The very existence of the Zionist State is inherently against our Holy Torah. Therefore we pray and hope [daily] for its speedy [peaceful] abolishment.

    Muslims claim every inch of dirt which has every been trod upon by one Muslim foot as theirs. A more practical rule would be either counting countries where the national constitution contains a clause, often the first, subordinating the law to the Quran, or counting countries with a large and established Muslim population. By this standard the Umma starts before Gibraltar and extends east through the Phillipines, and from formerly Soviet republics south to Indonesia. The most populous state which is explicitly Muslim is Malaysia, but the biggest group of Muslims across borders is on the Subcontinent.
    Now, I'm bad at math, but what do you think "half" means?

    Gotta love when Jewish/Yankee media sources weigh in as authorities on southern matters. Don’t they make a point of letting black leaders represent the voice of reason when northern black interests are involved? But southerners aren’t extended similar courtesies and Cofnas acts baffled that Kevin McDonald is taken seriously. From Wikipedia re: Till’s dad:

    “ The Southern media extensively covered the story: various editorials claimed that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the "Yankee" media had covered up, or lied about, the record of Emmett Till's father.[10] Many of these editorials specifically cited an article in Life magazine, which presented Louis Till as having died fighting for his country in France. According to historians, Life magazine was an exception rather than the rule, and no other "northern" media had lionized Pvt. Till or embellished his record; additionally, Life later published a retraction.[10] However, the impression was left among some southerners that the erroneous Life article was representative of the Northern media in general.[10] Several other Southern editorials went so far as to associate Emmett Till with his father's crimes. They implied that Emmett may have attempted rape after the fashion of his father, thereby justifying his murder.[11]”

    So “historians” noted the phony Life story (with an unmatched?? Circulation in its day?) but no contemporary northern papers?

    I’m NOT surprised that the “rabbi” is a leftist; when is he going to come out with a statement against guns and Trump? Rabbi supports the State of Israel as a [big government] democracy, i.e. he opposes any formal political force, within Israel or beyond, that tends to promote Israel as a Jewish State.

    "Over the years, my congregation and I have participated in multiple security courses from the Colleyville Police Department, the FBI, the Anti-Defamation League, and Secure Community Network,' he said.

    'We are alive today because of that education. I encourage all Jewish congregations, religious groups, schools, and others to participate in active-shooter and security courses."

    This is another example of how we've all been taught to view the world.

    Collective responsibility or culpability in the West is a thing for white people and perhaps men as a whole. However, suggestions of addressable collective interests or pride are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    Conversely non-whites are implicitly seen to only have addressable collective interests or pride and the suggestion that they might have collective responsibility or culpability are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    So what happens when somebody holds up a synagogue and it turns out to be an immigrant from a Pakistani immigrant background in Britain?

    Well that's a dangerous 'conversation' on so so many levels, so instead we pretend the real problem is white people noticing rather than say, focusing on what Jews and Pakistanis have been posting on social media about the incident...

    That was literally the case on the editorial page of the New York Times back during Ferguson. The editors said black rioting in Ferguson was "clearly" the fault of the "local white power structure." Adjoining the editorial was a guest opinion piece by a Jewish professor who was worried by rising antisemitic attacks on Jews in Europe by Europeans. OK, yeah, she conceded, the attacks were by Muslim youfs, but they are European now, and besides, antisemitism was brought to the Middle East by Christian missionaries in the first place.

    She actually argued that and the NYT actually printed it.

    The Democrats certainly have forgotten about the Memorial Day weekend 2020 assault on the White House in which 60 Secret service agents were injured and National Guard troops brought in.

    The news reported “demonstrators repeatedly attempted to knock over security barriers and vandalized [destroyed] six Secret Service vehicles, the agency said in a statement on Sunday. Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also ‘directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids,’ the statement added….the parish house connected to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House was set on fire….The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building was also set ablaze near the White House….Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees. A cinder block structure, on the north side of the park, that had bathrooms and a maintenance office, was engulfed in flames.”

    Secret Service said more than 60 officers and agents were hurt between May 29-May 31, 2020, defending Federal property in Washington, DC from anti-Trump protestors

    The National Park Service said 65 U.S. Park Police officers were injured between May 29-June 1.

    During that first week or so, May 29 to June 7, the DC Metropolitan Police Department confirmed 21 injuries.

    The Washington Free Beacon reported:


    As the hostage situation at a Texas synagogue developed on Saturday, Michigan’s attorney general, Democrat Dana Nessel, raised the possibility that white supremacists were behind the attack.

    Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, about an hour after it had been reported that the attacker was demanding the release of imprisoned terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, Nessel said her “biggest concern” was that the attack was a “hate crime” or “domestic terrorism,” pointing to “white supremacy organizations.”

    “We have seen an incredible rise in rhetoric that is anti-Semitic being trafficked all around the country,” Nessel said, noting “an exponential rise in the formation and the membership of these extremist organizations, many of which are white supremacy organizations, and they traffic in hatred against Jews and other minorities.”

    “If it does turn out that is the motivating factor here, it would hardly be a surprise,” Nessel said.

    A Muslim threatened some Jews. The tweeters I referenced are confident that white supremacy entirely creates antisemitism (and Islamophobia). It follows that no Muslim would be antisemitic in the absence of white supremacy. Hence “whites” are to blame for what the Muslim did.

    Muslims can be white, and Jews almost always are (although various Jews and Gentiles might argue that they are not), but the meaning of white supremacy in this context (and most others) is whites who are not Muslim or Jewish, viz., traditional white Christians.

    They are not blaming white Muslims for antisemitism and not blaming white Jews for Islamophobia. They are blaming white Christians (and post-Christians) for both. That's an example of sidelashing.

    >See, the REAL problem is not that Muslims hate Jews or that blacks hate Asians, etc. , no not at all. The REAL problem is that whitey hates you all, so please hate him back.

    Problem that the SJW crowd tends to run into abroad is that most non-Western foreigners don't think in the way they expect them to. Their hatred is usually not directed toward "whites", but to far more obvious local ethnic/national rivalries. And this is something I suspect new immigrants tend to keep more often than not. To the extent that they get drawn into racial conflicts with existing groups in the US, blacks are usually more likely to be fought with for resources and political heft. Mexican organized crime (which is going to be far more of a headache long-term to American security than black riots are in the short run) utilized firebombing campaigns to get blacks out of their neighborhoods in LA, for crying out loud. If that doesn't speak to how the Rainbow Coalition is actually working out on the ground in a one-party blue state, I don't know what will.

    I'm not denying the political danger of the "all against Whitey" coalition, but it is inherently unstable and has to rely on constant spoils games to keep going, spoils that the Democrats are increasingly finding it difficult to dole out. If the GOP ever produced someone smart-don't hold your breath-it would be easy to pry apart.

    Also, in the Islamic world, the notion that Islam is a tacitly "non-white" religion would be considered bizarre on a good day. Like Christianity, while real life might not live up to the rhetoric every now and again (see Yugoslavia or Malaysia for examples where Islam *is* tacitly racialized to a certain extent), it's an explicitly universalist faith that transcends race-this is part of why the Hindu/Muslim conflict in India is so emotionally charged. This is a feature many Muslims tend to be proud of, and attitudes toward converts from non-traditional racial backgrounds are usually welcoming.

    This is another example of how we’ve all been taught to view the world.

    Collective responsibility or culpability in the West is a thing for white people and perhaps men as a whole. However, suggestions of addressable collective interests or pride are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    Conversely non-whites are implicitly seen to only have addressable collective interests or pride and the suggestion that they might have collective responsibility or culpability are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    So what happens when somebody holds up a synagogue and it turns out to be an immigrant from a Pakistani immigrant background in Britain?

    Well that’s a dangerous ‘conversation’ on so so many levels, so instead we pretend the real problem is white people noticing rather than say, focusing on what Jews and Pakistanis have been posting on social media about the incident…

    I'm surprised that the house of worship is now, and has always (25 years?) been, affiliated with Reform Judaism. It's called a congregation. The Reforms like to name their halls "temple". I'm surprised that the building was even open on Saturday. Reforms are not known for strict, religious observance. Maybe they were planning a celebration of Pride or something?

    I'm NOT surprised that the "rabbi" is a leftist; when is he going to come out with a statement against guns and Trump? Rabbi supports the State of Israel as a [big government] democracy, i.e. he opposes any formal political force, within Israel or beyond, that tends to promote Israel as a Jewish State.

Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also 'directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids,' the statement added....the parish house connected to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House was set on fire....The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building was also set ablaze near the White House....Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees.

They are just spouting standard Leftist Coalition of the Fringes solidarity crap (which we are also seeing with black attacks on Asians, black attacks on gays, black attacks on Latinos, etc.). They understand that the Coalition of the Fringes consists of groups that naturally hate each other, but as long as they can all keep their guns aimed at whitey in a circular firing squad then all is well. As soon as you remove whitey from the equation, the members will begin sniping at one another. Sometimes they forget and start the sniping immediately, in which case they need to be reminded to all re-aim their weapons back at whitey. See, the REAL problem is not that Muslims hate Jews or that blacks hate Asians, etc. , no not at all. The REAL problem is that whitey hates you all, so please hate him back.

    A Muslim threatened some Jews. The tweeters I referenced are confident that white supremacy entirely creates antisemitism (and Islamophobia). It follows that no Muslim would be antisemitic in the absence of white supremacy. Hence “whites” are to blame for what the Muslim did.

    Muslims can be white, and Jews almost always are (although various Jews and Gentiles might argue that they are not), but the meaning of white supremacy in this context (and most others) is whites who are not Muslim or Jewish, viz., traditional white Christians.

    They are not blaming white Muslims for antisemitism and not blaming white Jews for Islamophobia. They are blaming white Christians (and post-Christians) for both. That’s an example of sidelashing.

  77. The people saying the attack will be quickly forgotten are themselves forgetting something. This attack was an attack on Jews. That’s not kosher with the powers that be. We heard quite a bit when Muslims in France murdered Jews. They don’t mind the murderous attitude of some Muslims here. They want it because it gives more power to the surveillance state and secret police. After all, all seventeen of the US intelligence agencies are part of the establishment. Besides, in a couple of months, this attack will merge into generic “anti-semitic hate crimes” that the media will then trumpet for years. Remember hearing every day about how anti-Semitic hate crimes were so high after Trump was elected? Remember when they caught the Jew behind all of them? Did they then Trumpet every day that a Jew committed all of the hate crimes? At best, one read on page C10 that a “foreign teenager” was the hate criminal. If that, I’d bet that most just quietly stopped talking about it. Much like the groid Kenosha Massacre was quietly dropped from the news cycle.

    You have to wonder about Jewish sentiment when you realize that a few dead Jews are fine so long as it hurts white gentiles more. Not even necessarily in numbers of corpses (though including Iraq and Afghanistan far more gentiles have died for Israel than Jews. Wonder how many of Israel’s wars it would take to match the total dead and mutilated) but the fact that Muslim immigration both weakens our hand and gets us hot ‘n’ bothered to go murder Muslims for Israel is pure crazy-gravy, cravy or grazy, I guess.

    For example: Whites cause Blacks to beat and rob Asians, white Christians are ultimately to blame for a Muslim kidnapping Jews.

    That was literally the case on the editorial page of the New York Times back during Ferguson. The editors said black rioting in Ferguson was “clearly” the fault of the “local white power structure.” Adjoining the editorial was a guest opinion piece by a Jewish professor who was worried by rising antisemitic attacks on Jews in Europe by Europeans. OK, yeah, she conceded, the attacks were by Muslim youfs, but they are European now, and besides, antisemitism was brought to the Middle East by Christian missionaries in the first place.

    She actually argued that and the NYT actually printed it.

    Small hats working feverishly to blame this attack on Whites.

    I) The Jews who actually wear the “small hats” (i.e., yarmulkes; skullcaps) more than just occasionally (i.e., the Orthodox), are the least likely to be anti-white.

    II) Most of the Jews who wear various styles of large (black) hats (i.e., the more traditional and fervently Orthodox, known as Haredim or, tendentiously, as “Ultra-Orthodox”) are at a minimum de jure ideologically non-Zionist. A considerable number of Haredim are vehemently anti-Zionist.[1] A fringe subset of Haredi anti-Zionists are explicitly and actively pro-Palestinian.[2]

    Today’s Haredi population include the descendants (both ancestral as well as ideological) of the anti-Zionist Jews who lived together peaceably with Muslims in the Holy Land prior to the Zionists’ establishing the state that they call “Israel”.

    Absolutely ridiculous and false statement. Yes, 100 years ago some ultra Halloween costume jews were very opposed to the establishment of the official Jewish colony in Palestine Zionism and later establishment of the State of Israel.

    But that was long ago. The Halloween costume ultras love the State of Israel now. Because they don’t have to work. They live off their kid’s welfare benefit. And are exempt from the draft. And the Israeli government pays for all their special community establishments. Bathhouses those weird wire boundaries special buses to avoid contamination by non ultras, shuls in every apartment building, special schools for both kids and adult men who spend their days memorizing Talmud and other books all the endless special needs non Israeli ultras pay for, build and maintain for themselves

    The ultras love the Zionist state of Israel. Yes, one of the hundred or so sects can muster up some occasional anti Israel demonstrators because of the Messiah coming back to earth idea.

    But all the Israeli ultra sects would be totally lost without the Zionist state of Israel. OMG!!!!!! the men would have to go to work and even be drafted and actually have to defend themselves against the Arabs, And they would have to support their kids!!!!!!!

    There are as many sects of jews as there are of non Roman Catholic Christians. And endless splits as the Rabbis fight for control power and money. In some sects the women have to wear both the wigs and snoods at all times. Other sects allow just the wigs.

    The more liberal ultra sects trust the married couples to observe the no sex or touching 15 days of every month. Other sects the husband brings a pair of the wife’s under pants she wore for 24 hours to the rabbi. The rabbi inspects the under pants and gives permission to the husband to have sex with his wife for the next 14 days. Or not.

    In S California the ultra rabbis are trying to forbid kosher Jews from eating vegetables and fruit grown outside. They have declared only produce grown in giant green houses kosher.
    Giant green houses owned by the rabbis of course. Reason is bugs are not kosher. And bugs crawl around fruit and vegetables grown outside.

    Some sects forbid eating legumes or beans and lentils and grains rice wheat rye corn oat products from the same factory because those foods were in the same vats and machinery although at different times. The approved factories are owned by the rabbis and their families of course.

    Some sects mandate not just 2 dishwashers 2 sinks 2 stoves and 2 complete sets of cooking equipment but 2 completely separate kitchens to keep kosher.

    It’s useless to write about Haredim and chabads and the endless sects and divisions. There’s dozens. Conservative doesn’t really describe them. Conservative is an official religious sect. Not a total lifestyle. I like the word ultra for all the Halloween costume sects. Too many to put them into one official group such as hasid

    The ultras aren’t into religion as much as a total lifestyle from what days a married couple can have sex to mandatory hair styles even for small children to what dish towel can dry what dish to where they shop, forbidden to use public transit because the men might have to sit next to a filthy female; everything they do from waking up in the morning to going to sleep at night, ,

    BYW the only place to really learn about kosher food is to find the website of a rabbi whose official job is policing kosher food. It’s a a real occupation with training and a license. It’s complicated and there are many different levels.

    And pork is not forbidden because pigs are dirtier than other livestock. All livestock are dirty. And shell fish are forbidden for the same reason beetles are forbidden.

    The Christian Zionists are very ignorant about the ultra Jews to atheist Jews to kosher food to all the ultra sects.

    Only way to really learn about the ultras is to be a Jew who thought about joining an ultra sect. The ultras have many missionary outreach programs to both religious and secular Jews. Many secular Jews get involved back out and tell non Jewish friends what they learned.,

    Also helps to live near the huge Chabad and Haredim sect neighborhoods. Shop in the different types of kosher food stores for European butter &cheese. And nuts and dried fruit in the Persian and Mizrahi food markets.

    Most of all read the Jewish community newspapers and websites. They make a major effort to accommodate all Jews from militant atheists to the ultras. So you can learn about the effort to declare produce grown outside forbidden non kosher to rabbis inspecting women’s underpants etc etc etc.

    Odd that Belloc considered Islam to be a Christian heresy (or at least started out that way), rather than a separate religion in its own right. Kind of like how the Mormons originated out of particular strains of American Protestantism yet became something very different. Apparently many medieval Europeans felt the same way; Dante has Muhammad in the same part of Hell as the schismatics.

    On another note, I’ve always felt that Steven Spielberg named the principal villain in Raiders of the Lost Ark Rene Belloq to get back at Hilaire Belloc (who died in 1953) for what he wrote about the Jews.

    The people saying the attack will be quickly forgotten are themselves forgetting something. This attack was an attack on Jews. That’s not kosher with the powers that be. We heard quite a bit when Muslims in France murdered Jews. They don’t mind the murderous attitude of some Muslims here. They want it because it gives more power to the surveillance state and secret police. After all, all seventeen of the US intelligence agencies are part of the establishment. Besides, in a couple of months, this attack will merge into generic “anti-semitic hate crimes” that the media will then trumpet for years. Remember hearing every day about how anti-Semitic hate crimes were so high after Trump was elected? Remember when they caught the Jew behind all of them? Did they then Trumpet every day that a Jew committed all of the hate crimes? At best, one read on page C10 that a “foreign teenager” was the hate criminal. If that, I’d bet that most just quietly stopped talking about it. Much like the groid Kenosha Massacre was quietly dropped from the news cycle.

    You have to wonder about Jewish sentiment when you realize that a few dead Jews are fine so long as it hurts white gentiles more. Not even necessarily in numbers of corpses (though including Iraq and Afghanistan far more gentiles have died for Israel than Jews. Wonder how many of Israel’s wars it would take to match the total dead and mutilated) but the fact that Muslim immigration both weakens our hand and gets us hot ‘n’ bothered to go murder Muslims for Israel is pure crazy-gravy, cravy or grazy, I guess.

    I suppose I feel sorry for the individual Jews who are murdered. But I really shouldn’t. Innocents die in war all the time. Do Jews mourn all the Germans killed in Dresden?

    Problem that the SJW crowd tends to run into abroad is that most non-Western foreigners don’t think in the way they expect them to. Their hatred is usually not directed toward “whites”, but to far more obvious local ethnic/national rivalries. And this is something I suspect new immigrants tend to keep more often than not. To the extent that they get drawn into racial conflicts with existing groups in the US, blacks are usually more likely to be fought with for resources and political heft. Mexican organized crime (which is going to be far more of a headache long-term to American security than black riots are in the short run) utilized firebombing campaigns to get blacks out of their neighborhoods in LA, for crying out loud. If that doesn’t speak to how the Rainbow Coalition is actually working out on the ground in a one-party blue state, I don’t know what will.

    I’m not denying the political danger of the “all against Whitey” coalition, but it is inherently unstable and has to rely on constant spoils games to keep going, spoils that the Democrats are increasingly finding it difficult to dole out. If the GOP ever produced someone smart-don’t hold your breath-it would be easy to pry apart.

    Also, in the Islamic world, the notion that Islam is a tacitly “non-white” religion would be considered bizarre on a good day. Like Christianity, while real life might not live up to the rhetoric every now and again (see Yugoslavia or Malaysia for examples where Islam *is* tacitly racialized to a certain extent), it’s an explicitly universalist faith that transcends race-this is part of why the Hindu/Muslim conflict in India is so emotionally charged. This is a feature many Muslims tend to be proud of, and attitudes toward converts from non-traditional racial backgrounds are usually welcoming.

    There was no Western Roman Empire by the 7th Century. Any chance Justinian might have had of renevatio imperii was destroyed the moment bubonic plague arrived.

    The Eastern Roman Empire survived the 7th Century: out of all the crises that the Romans survived that would have killed most states (and did: Sparta didn't survive its Cannae, the Diadochi were torn apart by their domestic wars whereas Rome survived, Han China did not survive its version of the 3rd Century crisis intact, Sassanid Persia got swallowed whole by the Arabs, Charlemagne's realm and the caliphate fell apart while Byzantium survived on, etc), the 7th Century is arguably the most impressive of them all. But they lost 2/3rds of its land and 3/4ths of its wealth. The drastic psychological and material shock caused by this civilizational collapse leads to the clearest drawing line between late antiquity and medieval rump state Byzantium.

    > You know those ‘Harems’? They were christians captured to be sex slaves.

    The Muslims even made it to Rome itself once, in 846 AD. Rome by then hadn't been what it once was for several centuries, but still, that should really imprint on how vulnerable Europe was in the Dark Ages.

    That said, one of the key impetuses for newer pagan peoples in Europe to convert to Christianity was because papal canon said that pagans were free game for the slave trade. Guess where the word "Slav" was used in English...

    (Not that everybody paid attention. Venice certainly didn't: along with salt, the slave trade was how they got wealthy, and most of their slaves seem to have been Christian Italians, not pagan Slavs. As the Islamic wars of conquest ended and as Europe began demographically recovering from its low point, slaves were in higher demand in Baghdad and Cairo. Supply and demand: African slave trade also was big for the same reasons.

    And as their later history should show-most notoriously in 1204-the Most Serene Republic seldom saw shared Christianity as an obstacle to getting what they wanted.)

    Ignoring whether there was a Western Roman Empire (not really, though people like Charlemagne claimed the inheritance, and a Holy Roman Empire emerged), the one thing Islam did for the West after Byzantium fell was stimulate oceanic maritime exploration. People wanted the spices of the Indies, the only way besides salting of keeping meat remotely edible in a world without refrigeration, and were prepared to risk their money and lives to get them without paying huge taxes to assorted Muslims along the trade routes.

    https://www.wired.com/story/pregnant-people-still-not-getting-vaccinated-covid/

    PBS uses “pregnant people” 19 times in its short article. The word “women” only appears one time, in a direct quote of the author of the Scottish study.

    The caption of the PBS photo says it is of a “pregnant person.”

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/amp/health/unvaccinated-pregnant-people-are-at-higher-risk-for-covid-complications-newborn-deaths

    The actual medical journal study all these articles are covering uses only “pregnant women.”

    Bezos Post’s article by an asian male journalist splits the difference, using both “pregnant women” and “pregnant people.”

    Local outlets are still using “pregnant women” but it will probably only be a year or two until they mostly follow the lead of the prestige national MSM outlets.

    I read the original, and from what I can tell, if the vax rate were 100% not 32%, neonatal mortality would have been 450 in 2021 not 460.

    The people saying the attack will be quickly forgotten are themselves forgetting something. This attack was an attack on Jews. That’s not kosher with the powers that be. We heard quite a bit when Muslims in France murdered Jews. They don’t mind the murderous attitude of some Muslims here. They want it because it gives more power to the surveillance state and secret police. After all, all seventeen of the US intelligence agencies are part of the establishment. Besides, in a couple of months, this attack will merge into generic “anti-semitic hate crimes” that the media will then trumpet for years. Remember hearing every day about how anti-Semitic hate crimes were so high after Trump was elected? Remember when they caught the Jew behind all of them? Did they then Trumpet every day that a Jew committed all of the hate crimes? At best, one read on page C10 that a “foreign teenager” was the hate criminal. If that, I’d bet that most just quietly stopped talking about it. Much like the groid Kenosha Massacre was quietly dropped from the news cycle.

    You have to wonder about Jewish sentiment when you realize that a few dead Jews are fine so long as it hurts white gentiles more. Not even necessarily in numbers of corpses (though including Iraq and Afghanistan far more gentiles have died for Israel than Jews. Wonder how many of Israel’s wars it would take to match the total dead and mutilated) but the fact that Muslim immigration both weakens our hand and gets us hot ‘n’ bothered to go murder Muslims for Israel is pure crazy-gravy, cravy or grazy, I guess.

    I suppose I feel sorry for the individual Jews who are murdered. But I really shouldn’t. Innocents die in war all the time. Do Jews mourn all the Germans killed in Dresden?

    He apparently flew to DFW to get close to his “sister” where she is being held in a Federal prison hospital. After he got there he must have looked on Google Maps for the closest synagogue to the airport. Having been raised inside the S. Asian Muslim bubble in northern England, it probably didn’t occur to him that a house of worship would not be crowded on the weekly holy day. Of course if he had ever visited an Anglican church in England he might have been clued in.

I lost the remaining 2/3 of this superb program to the hostage coverage. (except for the final 2 minutes at the end). The hostage coverage consisted of a camera focused on a police SUV with flashing lights, in the synagogue parking lot.

    Small hats working feverishly to blame this attack on Whites.
     
    I) The Jews who actually wear the "small hats" (i.e., yarmulkes; skullcaps) more than just occasionally (i.e., the Orthodox), are the least likely to be anti-white.

    II) Most of the Jews who wear various styles of large (black) hats (i.e., the more traditional and fervently Orthodox, known as Haredim or, tendentiously, as "Ultra-Orthodox") are at a minimum de jure ideologically non-Zionist. A considerable number of Haredim are vehemently anti-Zionist.[1] A fringe subset of Haredi anti-Zionists are explicitly and actively pro-Palestinian.[2]

    Today's Haredi population include the descendants (both ancestral as well as ideological) of the anti-Zionist Jews who lived together peaceably with Muslims in the Holy Land prior to the Zionists' establishing the state that they call "Israel".

    The term "Hispanic" is misleading: there is little to no solidarity between different Latin American immigrant groups. The relationship between Mexicans and Central Americans can be particularly testy. MS-13 was originally founded in the 1980s in LA to protect Salvadorans from more established Mexican gangs.

    The overwhelming majority of the migrant influx comes from Central America, not Mexico, which is why Trump's agreements and tacit collaboration with the Mexican government to stem migrant flow-stuff that Biden has, of course, scrapped-were so important in stemming further illegal immigration.

    (Mexico has severe problems with security and organized drug cartels, of course, but it's not a Guatemala or El Salvador-style undeveloped neo-feudal backwater, either. Think the difference between Brazil and Peru or Malaysia and Bangladesh.)

Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also 'directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids,' the statement added....the parish house connected to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House was set on fire....The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building was also set ablaze near the White House....Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees.

  112. The funny thing about Jews is that most absolutely refuse to admit that they have some hand in their own troubles. You’d be hard-pressed to find a white person who will not at least admit that some whites have stepped on the toes of others. Far more whites are willing to justify or look the other way as a somewhat declared, one-way race war is waged against them for decades through crime, violence, rapes, politics, economics, etc., because of the actions of governments or individual whites, that may not have even benefitted many whites, or them personally.

    I’ll assume that everyone in the synagogue was an innocent target, so it’s good that nobody was hurt. Still, Jews have to realize that when you wish to push your group interests to ridiculously outsized levels against the interests of almost ever other group, and play on the world stage as major players, innocent members of your group are often targeted. Strange that they haven’t figured this out yet, since many Jewish activists push the violence against others in the form of social justice, or whatever they call it.

    The actual BBC news today on this subject was just incredible: they managed to not mention the words ‘islam’ or ‘muslim’ once, said that the suspect was from Blackburn with no other mention of his background (I thought ‘whitewashing’ ethnics was supposed to be bad?) and would only coyly describe what he said to his hostages as ‘religious ranting’.

    Replies: @nebulafox, @YetAnotherAnon, @Anon

    There was no Western Roman Empire by the 7th Century. Any chance Justinian might have had of renevatio imperii was destroyed the moment bubonic plague arrived.

    The Eastern Roman Empire survived the 7th Century: out of all the crises that the Romans survived that would have killed most states (and did: Sparta didn’t survive its Cannae, the Diadochi were torn apart by their domestic wars whereas Rome survived, Han China did not survive its version of the 3rd Century crisis intact, Sassanid Persia got swallowed whole by the Arabs, Charlemagne’s realm and the caliphate fell apart while Byzantium survived on, etc), the 7th Century is arguably the most impressive of them all. But they lost 2/3rds of its land and 3/4ths of its wealth. The drastic psychological and material shock caused by this civilizational collapse leads to the clearest drawing line between late antiquity and medieval rump state Byzantium.

    > You know those ‘Harems’? They were christians captured to be sex slaves.

    The Muslims even made it to Rome itself once, in 846 AD. Rome by then hadn’t been what it once was for several centuries, but still, that should really imprint on how vulnerable Europe was in the Dark Ages.

    That said, one of the key impetuses for newer pagan peoples in Europe to convert to Christianity was because papal canon said that pagans were free game for the slave trade. Guess where the word “Slav” was used in English…

    (Not that everybody paid attention. Venice certainly didn’t: along with salt, the slave trade was how they got wealthy, and most of their slaves seem to have been Christian Italians, not pagan Slavs. As the Islamic wars of conquest ended and as Europe began demographically recovering from its low point, slaves were in higher demand in Baghdad and Cairo. Supply and demand: African slave trade also was big for the same reasons.

    And as their later history should show-most notoriously in 1204-the Most Serene Republic seldom saw shared Christianity as an obstacle to getting what they wanted.)

There are abundant clues that the Hispanic man on the street (and the Asian man on the street) is not down with the whole Democrat Leftist project – the elevation of Blacks to a group that is immune from the application of law, the normalization of trannies, etc.. These Party activists types talk only to each other (including some token “Latinx” elites) using their stilted academic jargon so they think that they have their finger on the pulse of Hispanic voters when they in fact have no clue how much these people are growing to hate them and their deviant pets.

    Not so sure about this, especially among Hispanics. There may be a few that leave the Democrat reservation, but not nearly enough. Couple that with the unending influx of the poor and uneducated, it becomes even less likely. California is the best example, there’s no sign of anything but a relentless movement to the left.

    The term “Hispanic” is misleading: there is little to no solidarity between different Latin American immigrant groups. The relationship between Mexicans and Central Americans can be particularly testy. MS-13 was originally founded in the 1980s in LA to protect Salvadorans from more established Mexican gangs.

    The overwhelming majority of the migrant influx comes from Central America, not Mexico, which is why Trump’s agreements and tacit collaboration with the Mexican government to stem migrant flow-stuff that Biden has, of course, scrapped-were so important in stemming further illegal immigration.

He had been the lead investigator of a drug study, and thus had early knowledge that the drug worked. Set aside the fact that he arrogantly thought he wouldn’t get caught. The big issue is whether he is an ethical outlier, or, this is an example of what studies call “ethics mirroring.” I suspect the latter; he is immersed in a sleazy culture. In any event, I suspect that the previously arcane study of ethics-mirroring now deserves a lot of attention, as the country unravels. And, a cousin of ethics-mirroring is probably proficiency-mirroring. I guess this “mirroring” thing is “duh” stuff and I should not even post this and this should be sent to Steve purgatory.

    The Irish Republic have decided that anyone who can get there then stay under the radar for four years (three if you have children, two if you have been waiting for an asylum claim to be processed) can have citizenship.

    https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/regularising-undocumented-migrants-does-the-scheme-offer-path-out-of-the-shadows-1.4755818

    Earlier this month, the Government announced that undocumented migrants who have been living in Ireland for at least four years, or three years in the case of those with children, would be able to apply to regularise their immigration status in Ireland and begin the pathway to citizenship.

    Asylum seekers who have spent at least two years awaiting a decision on their international protection application will also be able to apply for regularisation under the scheme that runs for six months from January.

    What will this six-month amnesty mean for the daily lives of the estimated 17,000 people who live undocumented in Ireland? And will some people fall through the cracks and not be able to apply?

    Irene Jagoba, a carer and member of the Justice for the Undocumented Campaign, started speaking publicly about her undocumented status a few years ago. “I was nervous but I needed to be brave and stand up for everyone,” she told the podcast. “You feel like you have no voice because you cannot tell the truth.”

    Well yes, because you arrived illegally. But you bravely spoke publicly and … nothing happened.

    “The regularisation scheme really is life changing, it’s a massive win, it’s historic. I believe it will transform thousands of families’ and workers’ lives here in Ireland.”

    Yes, I can agree with that bit.

    Now this would just be a part of the ongoing Irish national suicide, in which they’ve tried, not without success, to cram the British experience of the last 60 years into half the time. If that’s what they want…

    But this affects the UK big-time. Ever since Irish independence, and reflecting a long shared history, any Brit who wants to move to Ireland, even post-Brexit, is entitled to do so, use the Irish health and benefits system etc – and the same for Irish citizens coming to the UK. In my childhood the next door neighbours were Irish, as were the people across the road.

    But that was when Irish citizens were pretty much 100% ethnically Irish or British – a lot of to-ing and fro-ing and mixing over the years. Now Ireland is giving these people a free route into the UK.

    It’ll be interesting to see how accurate that 17,000 figure is.

    If it’s anything like the estimate (IIRC by one Jonathan Portes) of 13,000 A6 immigrants coming to the UK after EU enlargement in 2005, it’ll be out by a factor of 100.

    I disagree with this. I have heard more anti-Semitism openly expressed here than I have in a lifetime in meatspace. Generally speaking, for better or for worse, open expression of anti-Judaism (outside of Leftist circles where anti-Israel expressions are now de rigueur) is mostly verboten in public discourse in America. The people who do it here do it mostly behind a mask of anonymity. I had always assumed that such lack of expression meant that most Americans were in fact not anti-Jewish but Unz leads me to wonder whether at least some people are hiding their true feelings. However, my overall impression remains that Unz is a sort of gathering spot for viewpoints that are off limits in public so that the frequency of anti-Semites one finds here is not representative of the general public. At least I hope so.

    I agree - the very reason for the vehemence of these Tweets is to rally the troops. The lady doth protest too much. They have a certain "don't think of pink elephants" quality - implicit in the need to point to whitey is that when the black guy shoves the Asian lady under the subway train or the Muslim attacks a synagogue, whitey is not the first person who comes to mind. Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?

    And yes, such Tweets don't really resonate with ordinary Latinos or Asians or Muslims. They are not really the intended audience. They are intended for the Party base - blacks and white "activists" - the kind of people who insist on calling Latinos Latinxes even though Latinos hate being called that.

    People have been wondering why Biden burned so much political capital on his hopeless "voting rights" quest. The answer is that he is in thrall to the Leftist Party base - they are the tail that is wagging the dog of the Democrat Party to their coming midterm losses.

    Here’s Conde Nast’s Wired:

    https://www.wired.com/story/pregnant-people-still-not-getting-vaccinated-covid/

    PBS uses “pregnant people” 19 times in its short article. The word “women” only appears one time, in a direct quote of the author of the Scottish study.

    The caption of the PBS photo says it is of a “pregnant person.”

    https://www.pbs.org/newshour/amp/health/unvaccinated-pregnant-people-are-at-higher-risk-for-covid-complications-newborn-deaths

    The actual medical journal study all these articles are covering uses only “pregnant women.”

    Bezos Post’s article by an asian male journalist splits the difference, using both “pregnant women” and “pregnant people.”

    Local outlets are still using “pregnant women” but it will probably only be a year or two until they mostly follow the lead of the prestige national MSM outlets.

    I read the original, and from what I can tell, if the vax rate were 100% not 32%, neonatal mortality would have been 450 in 2021 not 460.

    Small hats working feverishly to blame this attack on Whites.
     
    I) The Jews who actually wear the "small hats" (i.e., yarmulkes; skullcaps) more than just occasionally (i.e., the Orthodox), are the least likely to be anti-white.

    II) Most of the Jews who wear various styles of large (black) hats (i.e., the more traditional and fervently Orthodox, known as Haredim or, tendentiously, as "Ultra-Orthodox") are at a minimum de jure ideologically non-Zionist. A considerable number of Haredim are vehemently anti-Zionist.[1] A fringe subset of Haredi anti-Zionists are explicitly and actively pro-Palestinian.[2]

    Today's Haredi population include the descendants (both ancestral as well as ideological) of the anti-Zionist Jews who lived together peaceably with Muslims in the Holy Land prior to the Zionists' establishing the state that they call "Israel".

    Absolutely ridiculous and false statement. Yes, 100 years ago some ultra Halloween costume jews were very opposed to the establishment of the official Jewish colony in Palestine Zionism and later establishment of the State of Israel.

    But that was long ago. The Halloween costume ultras love the State of Israel now. Because they don’t have to work. They live off their kid’s welfare benefit. And are exempt from the draft. And the Israeli government pays for all their special community establishments. Bathhouses those weird wire boundaries special buses to avoid contamination by non ultras, shuls in every apartment building, special schools for both kids and adult men who spend their days memorizing Talmud and other books all the endless special needs non Israeli ultras pay for, build and maintain for themselves

    [MORE]

    The ultras love the Zionist state of Israel. Yes, one of the hundred or so sects can muster up some occasional anti Israel demonstrators because of the Messiah coming back to earth idea.

    But all the Israeli ultra sects would be totally lost without the Zionist state of Israel. OMG!!!!!! the men would have to go to work and even be drafted and actually have to defend themselves against the Arabs, And they would have to support their kids!!!!!!!

    There are as many sects of jews as there are of non Roman Catholic Christians. And endless splits as the Rabbis fight for control power and money. In some sects the women have to wear both the wigs and snoods at all times. Other sects allow just the wigs.

    The more liberal ultra sects trust the married couples to observe the no sex or touching 15 days of every month. Other sects the husband brings a pair of the wife’s under pants she wore for 24 hours to the rabbi. The rabbi inspects the under pants and gives permission to the husband to have sex with his wife for the next 14 days. Or not.

    In S California the ultra rabbis are trying to forbid kosher Jews from eating vegetables and fruit grown outside. They have declared only produce grown in giant green houses kosher.
    Giant green houses owned by the rabbis of course. Reason is bugs are not kosher. And bugs crawl around fruit and vegetables grown outside.

    Some sects forbid eating legumes or beans and lentils and grains rice wheat rye corn oat products from the same factory because those foods were in the same vats and machinery although at different times. The approved factories are owned by the rabbis and their families of course.

    Some sects mandate not just 2 dishwashers 2 sinks 2 stoves and 2 complete sets of cooking equipment but 2 completely separate kitchens to keep kosher.

    It’s useless to write about Haredim and chabads and the endless sects and divisions. There’s dozens. Conservative doesn’t really describe them. Conservative is an official religious sect. Not a total lifestyle. I like the word ultra for all the Halloween costume sects. Too many to put them into one official group such as hasid

    The ultras aren’t into religion as much as a total lifestyle from what days a married couple can have sex to mandatory hair styles even for small children to what dish towel can dry what dish to where they shop, forbidden to use public transit because the men might have to sit next to a filthy female; everything they do from waking up in the morning to going to sleep at night, ,

    BYW the only place to really learn about kosher food is to find the website of a rabbi whose official job is policing kosher food. It’s a a real occupation with training and a license. It’s complicated and there are many different levels.

    And pork is not forbidden because pigs are dirtier than other livestock. All livestock are dirty. And shell fish are forbidden for the same reason beetles are forbidden.

    The Christian Zionists are very ignorant about the ultra Jews to atheist Jews to kosher food to all the ultra sects.

    Only way to really learn about the ultras is to be a Jew who thought about joining an ultra sect. The ultras have many missionary outreach programs to both religious and secular Jews. Many secular Jews get involved back out and tell non Jewish friends what they learned.,

    Also helps to live near the huge Chabad and Haredim sect neighborhoods. Shop in the different types of kosher food stores for European butter &cheese. And nuts and dried fruit in the Persian and Mizrahi food markets.

    Most of all read the Jewish community newspapers and websites. They make a major effort to accommodate all Jews from militant atheists to the ultras. So you can learn about the effort to declare produce grown outside forbidden non kosher to rabbis inspecting women’s underpants etc etc etc.

    And yes, such Tweets don't really resonate with ordinary Latinos or Asians or Muslims. They are not really the intended audience. They are intended for the Party base - blacks and white "activists" - the kind of people who insist on calling Latinos Latinxes even though Latinos hate being called that.

Don’t they make a point of letting black leaders represent the voice of reason when northern black interests are involved? But southerners aren’t extended similar courtesies and Cofnas acts baffled that Kevin McDonald is taken seriously. From Wikipedia re: Till’s dad:

    “ The Southern media extensively covered the story: various editorials claimed that the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the “Yankee” media had covered up, or lied about, the record of Emmett Till’s father.[10] Many of these editorials specifically cited an article in Life magazine, which presented Louis Till as having died fighting for his country in France. According to historians, Life magazine was an exception rather than the rule, and no other “northern” media had lionized Pvt. Till or embellished his record; additionally, Life later published a retraction.[10] However, the impression was left among some southerners that the erroneous Life article was representative of the Northern media in general.[10] Several other Southern editorials went so far as to associate Emmett Till with his father’s crimes. They implied that Emmett may have attempted rape after the fashion of his father, thereby justifying his murder.[11]”

    So “historians” noted the phony Life story (with an unmatched?? Circulation in its day?) but no contemporary northern papers?

    I definitely don't support the advancing of establishment narratives or the targeting of randoms.

Since corporate environmental and diversity policy is really about megacorps, which can afford dead weight officers and Gaia handwaving, using government regulation to crush smaller companies which cannot afford these things, I guess he's right.
    (Digging deeper, that's not what it's about: Texas is banning financial groups which pretend that energy doesn't exist, and West Virginia is taking its state pension money away from Blackrock on the grounds that the megacorp is threatening coal. Fink is apparently doing damage control after these moves, but, just like Mark Milley, he's using unnornalized leftist jargon without realizong it. Remember Biden and various activists insisting that green businesses are profitable businesses and that surely jobs will come?

    I'm not so sure the academic elites are ready to throw in the towel on this word but in any case it has already done damage. There are abundant clues that the Hispanic man on the street (and the Asian man on the street) is not down with the whole Democrat Leftist project - the elevation of Blacks to a group that is immune from the application of law, the normalization of trannies, etc.. These Party activists types talk only to each other (including some token "Latinx" elites) using their stilted academic jargon so they think that they have their finger on the pulse of Hispanic voters when they in fact have no clue how much these people are growing to hate them and their deviant pets. Once it dawns on them that their fiendish plan to elect a new people may backfire they are going to change course on immigration overnight.

The population is really paying attention to it. Martin Landau then says: “In any case, the whole thing will be forgotten in a week.” An ancient scholar is sitting at a table, and says: “I wonder.”

    Your links are not saying that white Christians are ultimately to blame for a Muslim kidnapping Jews, which is what you claimed earlier. They are just spouting standard Leftist Coalition of the Fringes solidarity crap (which we are also seeing with black attacks on Asians, black attacks on gays, black attacks on Latinos, etc.). They understand that the Coalition of the Fringes consists of groups that naturally hate each other, but as long as they can all keep their guns aimed at whitey in a circular firing squad then all is well. As soon as you remove whitey from the equation, the members will begin sniping at one another. Sometimes they forget and start the sniping immediately, in which case they need to be reminded to all re-aim their weapons back at whitey. See, the REAL problem is not that Muslims hate Jews or that blacks hate Asians, etc. , no not at all. The REAL problem is that whitey hates you all, so please hate him back.

The purchase of the illegal gun part is especially intriguing. Did he have help, or is this something you can just inquire about on craigslist?

    This is a very persistent canard and misconception.

    Apart from a few rare instances, sponsored by individual employers such as The London Passenger Transport Board, there simply *never was* any state sponsored 'gastarbeiter' type system to import Commonwealth labor into Britain.
    During the post WW2 economic boom, the British economy underperformed those of continental Europe, and the need to import a large lump of labor never really existed. Besides, Ireland supplied the UK with all the labor it needed.
    No, the wretched 1948 British Nationality Act, passed by a Labour government, gave 'Empire and Commonwealth ' subjects the 'full right' to emigrate to the UK.

    This was *NOT* granted to 'supply labor needs', the motivation was somewhat different, but still fatally flawed.

    This is another example of how we've all been taught to view the world.

    Collective responsibility or culpability in the West is a thing for white people and perhaps men as a whole. However, suggestions of addressable collective interests or pride are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    Conversely non-whites are implicitly seen to only have addressable collective interests or pride and the suggestion that they might have collective responsibility or culpability are seen as the highest forms of evil or backwardness for whites.

    So what happens when somebody holds up a synagogue and it turns out to be an immigrant from a Pakistani immigrant background in Britain?

    Well that's a dangerous 'conversation' on so so many levels, so instead we pretend the real problem is white people noticing rather than say, focusing on what Jews and Pakistanis have been posting on social media about the incident...

    I definitely don’t support the advancing of establishment narratives or the targeting of randoms.

Since corporate environmental and diversity policy is really about megacorps, which can afford dead weight officers and Gaia handwaving, using government regulation to crush smaller companies which cannot afford these things, I guess he’s right.
    (Digging deeper, that’s not what it’s about: Texas is banning financial groups which pretend that energy doesn’t exist, and West Virginia is taking its state pension money away from Blackrock on the grounds that the megacorp is threatening coal. Fink is apparently doing damage control after these moves, but, just like Mark Milley, he’s using unnornalized leftist jargon without realizong it. Remember Biden and various activists insisting that green businesses are profitable businesses and that surely jobs will come? This is Fink’s apparent argument, and if I’m leaving anything out it’s because the article did.)

    I disagree with this. I have heard more anti-Semitism openly expressed here than I have in a lifetime in meatspace. Generally speaking, for better or for worse, open expression of anti-Judaism (outside of Leftist circles where anti-Israel expressions are now de rigueur) is mostly verboten in public discourse in America. The people who do it here do it mostly behind a mask of anonymity. I had always assumed that such lack of expression meant that most Americans were in fact not anti-Jewish but Unz leads me to wonder whether at least some people are hiding their true feelings. However, my overall impression remains that Unz is a sort of gathering spot for viewpoints that are off limits in public so that the frequency of anti-Semites one finds here is not representative of the general public. At least I hope so.

    If the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    The ADL obviously has one or more interns spending their days monitoring the white supremacist corners of the internet so when this happened they spent a brief amount of time (1 short paragraph) soft pedaling the event itself (“a gunman”, a “British national”, all 4 hostages were “released” (actually 3 of the 4 escaped)), a brief summary of Islamist reaction (1 paragraph), and then go on at great length (20 paragraphs) about the white supremacist reaction to the event.

    This is sort of similar to the famous New Yorker cover that shows a map where Manhattan is laid out in great detail building by building but then comes the Hudson River, a brief stretch of undefined dirt and then the Pacific Ocean.

    It would have been forgotten had it not been for the Democrats.

    The Democrats certainly have forgotten about the Memorial Day weekend 2020 assault on the White House in which 60 Secret service agents were injured and National Guard troops brought in.

    The news reported "demonstrators repeatedly attempted to knock over security barriers and vandalized [destroyed] six Secret Service vehicles, the agency said in a statement on Sunday. Protesters threw bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks and other items at officers and some Secret Service personnel were also 'directly physically assaulted as they were kicked, punched and exposed to bodily fluids,' the statement added....the parish house connected to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House was set on fire....The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building was also set ablaze near the White House....Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees. A cinder block structure, on the north side of the park, that had bathrooms and a maintenance office, was engulfed in flames."

Threatening discourse about American whites (a census category for me*) is similar to what has been applied to kulaks, Jews, Tutsis, and others, with murderous results. I was thinking, not first of Jews, but of the whole white-hating spectrum - the good whites, Puritans, Brahmin-Americans, Conquistador-Americans, BLMs, Antifas, and the remainder of that white-hating rainbow.

    Susan Sontag in her stupid description of Western civilization
    Tim Wise

    A Muslim threatened some Jews. The tweeters I referenced are confident that white supremacy entirely creates antisemitism (and Islamophobia). It follows that no Muslim would be antisemitic in the absence of white supremacy. Hence “whites” are to blame for what the Muslim did.

    Muslims can be white, and Jews almost always are (although various Jews and Gentiles might argue that they are not), but the meaning of white supremacy in this context (and most others) is whites who are not Muslim or Jewish, viz., traditional white Christians.

    They are not blaming white Muslims for antisemitism and not blaming white Jews for Islamophobia. They are blaming white Christians (and post-Christians) for both. That's an example of sidelashing.

The Republicans are becoming more populist and that, too, is bad for Israel. Republican pols like MTG and Thomas Massie are the future of the Republican party. They brush off Israel's endless demands and they're impervious to the usual charges of anti-Semitism.

    Yeah, ONLY 10,000 civilians murdered. What a joke.

    A barrel bomb only costs $50 so even if you have to drop 8 of them to kill 1 civilian, it's still cheap compared to more advanced bombs. This is in part why Assad uses them.

    But the main reason is that they are a terror weapon. The idea is not only to kill civilians but to damage property and terrorize an area so that the entire population flees. These 10,000 dead civilians gave rise to millions of refugees.

    Muslims claim every inch of dirt which has every been trod upon by one Muslim foot as theirs. A more practical rule would be either counting countries where the national constitution contains a clause, often the first, subordinating the law to the Quran, or counting countries with a large and established Muslim population. By this standard the Umma starts before Gibraltar and extends east through the Phillipines, and from formerly Soviet republics south to Indonesia. The most populous state which is explicitly Muslim is Malaysia, but the biggest group of Muslims across borders is on the Subcontinent.

The problem of course is that they never had a mandate to begin with, and what they imagined was their mandate (e.g. the unfettering of black criminals) was not only not their mandate but something that most people outside the Left wing of their party found to be repulsive.

    The ADL is an example of the March of Dimes effect and of the general corruption of NGOs. Prior to 1987, it was a Jewish interest group focused in particular on offering complaints contra the Jewish population's detractors but with some sidelines (e.g. an opposition to racial preference schemes). Nathan Perlmutter was in his public advocacy careful to make a distinction between defamatory remarks and what he called 'religious conceits'. He had no interest in involving the organization in theological discussions or in picking fights with religious agencies acting as religious agencies. Neither did he want the organization to be an auxilliary of either political party.

    His successor Abraham Foxman had no such scruples and involved the organization in extraneous issues and malicious culture war campaigns. Foxman's successor was drawn from the Democratic Party nomenklatura and it's now just another component of the fundraising and publicity machine.

    I don't deny that her attitudes characterize a non-trivial amount of Jews but I haven't seen any data that supports your contention that she represent the majority POV. She sits at the Left fringe of Jewish thought and is a loudmouth whose pronouncements get magnified in the media megaphone so she appears to have more support than she actually has. She is a young writer/poet/performer and is Leftist like most in her profession.

    The average non-Orthodox Jewish elite is older than Caroline and is a lawyer or a doctor or works in business or the financial industry and is considerably to the right of the writer/poet/performer demographic. I have no data either but if I had to guess, 20% of Jews are similar to or to the left of Caroline and 80% are to her right.

    Yeah, ONLY 10,000 civilians murdered. What a joke.

    A barrel bomb only costs \$50 so even if you have to drop 8 of them to kill 1 civilian, it’s still cheap compared to more advanced bombs. This is in part why Assad uses them.

    But the main reason is that they are a terror weapon. The idea is not only to kill civilians but to damage property and terrorize an area so that the entire population flees. These 10,000 dead civilians gave rise to millions of refugees.

    Worse, the March of Dimes still fund raises for a worthy cause, but the ADL has become the enemy of free speech as well as the enemy of normality and a friend to indecency.

    NY State’s population has flatlined. NYers don’t move to Wyoming (which of course has just as many Senators as NY State, despite the fact that leftist Jews want to change this), they move to Florida, or Texas, or Tennessee. Some red states have lost population (KS) but unless you are gay, people don’t move from red states to blue states.

    Blue state ideas are corrupt and degenerate and can’t survive. The blue states will be much reduced in power and influence as young people with ambition and desires to form families desert them. And as even all but the craziest in blue states tacitly admit that their ideas don’t work. Even blue state people will clamor for tough on crime policies and a curtailment of radical sexuality – they may succeed in the former but the latter is out of the barn.

    Non-O Jews will have lost cultural primacy to blacks, homosexuals, and woke white women. I see this all the time. Jews are being overtly and covertly forced out of the cultural spaces they once dominated in NYC.

    I totally disagree about only gays moving to blue states. I know tons of normal whites fleeing red states just to escape the rapid non-white population growth. For all your talk about blue state ideas not working, it's indisputable that most of them are still over 80% white. Texas is barely 40% white. It's mostly nonwhites moving to red states. Blue states have higher white population growth than red states.


    Also, lol @ radical sexuality. Red states have a way higher rate of homosexuality, they just don't identify as such. Check out the AIDS map of the USA. Your Florida, Texas and Tennessee look like they've been blasted by a 12 gauge at close range (they should be).

    White women have lost all cultural influence since 2013. They were abdicated.

    I totally disagree about only gays moving to blue states. I know tons of normal whites fleeing red states just to escape the rapid non-white population growth. For all your talk about blue state ideas not working, it’s indisputable that most of them are still over 80% white. Texas is barely 40% white. It’s mostly nonwhites moving to red states. Blue states have higher white population growth than red states.

    Also, lol @ radical sexuality. Red states have a way higher rate of homosexuality, they just don’t identify as such. Check out the AIDS map of the USA. Your Florida, Texas and Tennessee look like they’ve been blasted by a 12 gauge at close range (they should be).

    The AIDs map is basically a proxy for the % of blacks. A lot of black gay men are on the down low and they spread AIDs to their women.

    Lower growth blue states such as PA have a higher % of whites because fewer immigrants are moving in to the less economically dynamic states so they reflect historic %es of an older America (white people are literally older also). W. Va is red but same situation.

    Having grown up among Evangelicals and having some in my family, I think their support (where it exists) is a mile wide and an inch deep, and very much coerced. It takes a lot of lobbying, holocaust sob storying, New Testament twisting, and likely buying, bribing, and blackmailing of big ministers to toe the Zionist line. I seriously doubt that many Evangelicals would spend their own money or volunteer themselves or their children to fight inside of Israel for Israel.

    If someone were to go into these churches and talk about the USS Liberty, AIPAC scandals, Israeli spying, Epstein and Maxwell's likely role for Israel, Dancing Israelis and Israeli art students, along with the rot financed and pushed by Jewish orgs and activists, whatever blind support you assume exists would be gone in a flash.

    The guidelines come straight out of a transgender organization. They dispense with blackface in one sentence but focus on gender roles in several paragraphs:


    Discuss gendered messages in costumes
    Dress-up can be an opportunity for children to “try-on” different personas and expand their horizons. Unfortunately, much of the marketing and messaging around Halloween costume options ends up narrowing these horizons and reinforces restrictive social norms around gender and sexual orientation. “Girl costumes” predominantly focus on dresses and being pretty, such as princesses or fairies. Even superhero costumes “for girls” include skirts, instead of the more practical pants for crime-fighting. Costumes marketed to older girls emphasize attractiveness and sexual appeal.

    While costumes targeted to boys place heavy emphasis on superheroes and action figures, choices like these convey the message that boys should be scary and gruesome. Many children are attracted to traditional gendered costumes, think girls who love princesses or boys who are obsessed with action heroes. When that is the case, it is best not to reinforce that these are the only appropriate options available. Engage in conversations with young people about gender stereotypes and discuss messages that companies send through marketing and advertising.

    Many Halloween costumes perpetuate gender stereotypes and exclude those who don’t conform to traditional gender norms, especially those who are transgender, non-binary or gender non-conforming. Be mindful that you may have students who feel excluded and marginalized by the overly gendered way Halloween costumes are marketed.

    Encourage self-expression, while making sure that children who venture outside of gender norms for Halloween are accepted, respected and not teased. Before a Halloween event, you might say something like, “It’s really fun to dress up and pretend. At our school, there aren’t boy’s and girl’s costumes.”
     

    What an absolute fraud you are, coming here and pretending to be a conservative. This is not coming from a "good place." This is straight out transgender propaganda.

    You're not a conservative at all. You just hate blacks and you've found a place to spout off. Of all the commenters here, the one who has the deepest contempt for black people is you, Jack D.

    That might well be, but note that Jack didn't really engage with the link I provided, which indicates that Evangelical support is way less among the young than the old, so even the support that does exist is dwindling.

    Not to mention Evangelical power has waned tremendously, and that's not a different story for a different day. The old Israel-US alliance, to the extent that it had any grass-roots support whatever, is a product of a bygone era. It's dead, and a colder, harsher, more difficult world has taken its place, and the younger Evangelicals are looking at the wreckage of American foreign policy and garbage wars and saying, "What's in it for me?"

    You don't have to think that Israel is behind everything in US policy towards the Middle East to see that Israel has benefited tremendously from US focus on that area. I don't. But Israel *has* benefited.

    Now that other issues are looming (Ukraine, Taiwan) the Middle East is bound to become of lesser importance to the US. The Israelis can adapt and benefit from this in the short run (they've tilted towards China already) but in the long run, I don't think so - and an Israeli tilt towards China is bound to be a disaster for American Jews. But the Israelis don't care.

  253. Red state conservatives are quite a bit different from blue state law and order and chamber of commerce types. I’d rather even Republican transplants from blue states return home to the messes that they helped to make. My state has doubled in size over the last 30 years, and it’s by far for the worse, no matter if it is due to immigration or transplants of any political persuasion. I don’t really care if it is a lefty or some sort of conservative, transplants rarely try to fit in, and the so-called conservatives are just as likely to want to create anew what they left behind in my town as the lefties are. No thanks!

    If I had to choose between blue state conservatives and people who have no respect for America and claim that anyone from anywhere and their children have as much of a claim on the nation as people whose ancestors were here to colonize, build and settle the nation, I’d take the Blucons. In reality, I’d rather live apart from both groups and restrict movement. I wouldn’t want either as a neighbor.

This is well within mainstream American liberal discourse such as it is. There is nothing specifically Jewish about it (in the page they mumble something about respecting people's religious traditions without mentioning that Halloween is All Saints Day) and there are probably 10 other liberal organizations (National Education Association, PBS, etc.) that have similar positions. I don't know why you are fixated on the ADL in particular.

    I for one enjoyed Tucker blowing off the ADL.

    The ADL is an example of the March of Dimes effect and of the general corruption of NGOs. Prior to 1987, it was a Jewish interest group focused in particular on offering complaints contra the Jewish population's detractors but with some sidelines (e.g. an opposition to racial preference schemes). Nathan Perlmutter was in his public advocacy careful to make a distinction between defamatory remarks and what he called 'religious conceits'. He had no interest in involving the organization in theological discussions or in picking fights with religious agencies acting as religious agencies. Neither did he want the organization to be an auxilliary of either political party.

    His successor Abraham Foxman had no such scruples and involved the organization in extraneous issues and malicious culture war campaigns. Foxman's successor was drawn from the Democratic Party nomenklatura and it's now just another component of the fundraising and publicity machine.

    PS The March of Dimes analogy only goes so far. Once polio was licked, there were, indeed, other birth defects to fund raise for so why should they have gone out of business?

    But what reason does the ADL have to exist? Well, there’s always some anti-Semite living on spam and Mountain Dew in the hollers of Kentucky (one red state losing population), but it’s really not a major factor in American life.

    Worse, the March of Dimes still fund raises for a worthy cause, but the ADL has become the enemy of free speech as well as the enemy of normality and a friend to indecency. Jack D thought he was proving something when he supplied the link to their Halloween page, which just shows how far up his ass his head is. Their page on Halloween is sick.

    Chabads, hasids and all the thousand and one varieties of ultra Jews absolutely forbid even acknowledging Halloween themselves. It’s an evil European pagan custom and totally forbidden. Not quite, but almost as evil as Christmas and Easter.

    You sound like just the man for the job. These are your people and you know how they think. Give it your best shot!

    That’s the media’s job, Jack, and we both know why the media doesn’t cover those issues. The media is more involved in lies and cover-ups than anything else. The same media that reports on Emmit Till like he’s yesterday’s news would call the USS Liberty incident, AIPAC spy scandal, Epstein and Maxwell’s probable Israel ties, Israeli spying, Dancing Israelis and Israeli art students….all old news, if news at all. Why?

    Do you claim that there is nothing to cover? I do what I can, but the job belongs to people with access to important people and the ability to uncover the truth. Who’s supposed to talk truth to Jews?

    The guidelines come straight out of a transgender organization. They dispense with blackface in one sentence but focus on gender roles in several paragraphs:


    Discuss gendered messages in costumes
    Dress-up can be an opportunity for children to “try-on” different personas and expand their horizons. Unfortunately, much of the marketing and messaging around Halloween costume options ends up narrowing these horizons and reinforces restrictive social norms around gender and sexual orientation. “Girl costumes” predominantly focus on dresses and being pretty, such as princesses or fairies. Even superhero costumes “for girls” include skirts, instead of the more practical pants for crime-fighting. Costumes marketed to older girls emphasize attractiveness and sexual appeal.

    While costumes targeted to boys place heavy emphasis on superheroes and action figures, choices like these convey the message that boys should be scary and gruesome. Many children are attracted to traditional gendered costumes, think girls who love princesses or boys who are obsessed with action heroes. When that is the case, it is best not to reinforce that these are the only appropriate options available. Engage in conversations with young people about gender stereotypes and discuss messages that companies send through marketing and advertising.

    Many Halloween costumes perpetuate gender stereotypes and exclude those who don’t conform to traditional gender norms, especially those who are transgender, non-binary or gender non-conforming. Be mindful that you may have students who feel excluded and marginalized by the overly gendered way Halloween costumes are marketed.

    Encourage self-expression, while making sure that children who venture outside of gender norms for Halloween are accepted, respected and not teased. Before a Halloween event, you might say something like, “It’s really fun to dress up and pretend. At our school, there aren’t boy’s and girl’s costumes.”
     

    What an absolute fraud you are, coming here and pretending to be a conservative. This is not coming from a "good place." This is straight out transgender propaganda.

    You're not a conservative at all. You just hate blacks and you've found a place to spout off. Of all the commenters here, the one who has the deepest contempt for black people is you, Jack D.

    I'd love to see you spout off this way on a Jewish website, and not one that also features Andrew Anglin.

    Liberals have been spouting off about “girl toys” and “boy toys” for at least 40 years now and it never gets anywhere because kids want what they want and if you give a boy a girl toy he will never touch it nor vice versa.

    This is just the eternal quest of do gooders to perfect human nature.

    Well yes, and thanks for bringing it up even though it's a side issue.

    I didn't because it would have given Jack D, who needs no encouragement in bloviating, an open opportunity to engage in a waterfall of deflecting verbiage. But thanks anyway - there's no reason for an ostensibly Jewish organization to care about Halloween. It just shows how un-Jewish the ADL's concerns really are.

    They brush off Israel’s endless demands

    What 'endless demands'?

    Replies: @Paperback Writer

    This wasn’t nice. The Israelis could have at least gone halfway to appeasing US requests. It’s obvious to me they see the US as a declining power (which it is, Israelis are nothing but realistic).

    After all that money we gave them?
