    “Metaphysical proportions”?
     
    If a swastika is drawn on a wall in a school with no walls, can you hear a tree fall in the forest?

    Or something like that.

    Folks are saying that Silicon Valley believes the land currently occupied by the southern states is underutilized and underperforming. due to genetic and cultural factors of the ppl.

    The belief is that Silicon Valley has plans to confiscate the land and transform it into a high value/high profit enterprise.

    In short, their plan is to bring back the Lowland and Highland Clearances, a very painful episode etched into the collective genetic memory of the Scots.

    Already we are seeing signs -- note Trump's eagerness to use Eminent Domain to confiscate private, personal property in Texas.

    Where does it stop?

    Writer David McWilliams penned an excellent article in the Financial Times: Quantitative Easing was the Father of Millennial Socialism.

    McWilliams notes that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke’s “cash for trash” QE scheme drove up asset prices and bailed out the baby boomers. The cost of course, was pricing millennials out of the housing market.

    Unorthodox policy penalizes the asset poor.

    What assets do millennials have? Hardly any. Instead they are saddled with mountains of student debt which, thanks to president George W. Bush, could no longer be discharged in bankruptcy.

    The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 would have better been called the Debt Slave Act of 2005.

    Rather than as a generation-on-generation beat-down, per your theory, I think it's simply the US Feral Gov't's way of trying to keep the dollar in demand for a few more years. Think about this, #518, what generation are the current old people from? I don't see many millenials down at the early bird special gummin' down their creamed corn.

    We have already reached Peak Rich Old People in this country, and just one of three* stakes into the heart of the Golden Girls lifestyle has been the decade-long push of the FED to keep interest rates unaturally in the basement. People who may have saved up a coupla hundred thousand bucks, meaning a return of $800 - $1,000 monthly from a very conservative investement like a CD to supplement other sources has dropped to a hundred bucks. Or, they can go risky.

    No dude, the FED is simply trying to keep the party going a few more years. It and its government and banking controllers don't care one bit about peons in ANY generation.

    I am of the opinion that the Bankruptcy Act of 2005 was one of the leading causes of the collapse of 2008.

    Not THE leading cause, but one of the causes.

    At that time, the banks all had provisions in their credit card agreements for arbitration with the NAF, which was a scam run by the banks. The NAF almost always ruled for the credit card companies, so the companies didn’t even have to face a friendly judge to get judgments.

    With that combination, the banks went absolutely nuts giving out massive credit lines, knowing the suckers could not use bankruptcy or even the courts to get out of the mess.

    Around the time of the crash of 2008, the Minnesota AG office closed down NAF.

    I personally found myself with over $100,000 of credit card debt after the crash, which I had used to keep some rental properties afloat. When the crash came, I lost the rental properties. I was able to fight off the credit card companies, without even hiring a lawyer, using legal strategies based on their bad records, their illegal debt collection practices, and the mess arbitration was in after NAF closed. I wound up paying 5 - 10 cents on the dollar for all my debts. And that includes paying off my USAA credit card in full. Other than USAA, I paid an aggregate of less than 2 cents on the dollar.

    The strategies I used generally don’t work anymore, except for Sychrony store credit cards. Those can be beaten easily. The big banks can now win almost 100% of their credit card cases now.

    The student loan situation is even worse. Practices that would land bankers in prison are not only legal, but standard practices for student loans. And there is almost zero chance at bankruptcy.

    We don’t have the real estate bubble we had in 2008, but the combination of student loan debt, credit card debt, and sub prime auto loan debt is about as bad as it was in those days. And the little people have no way to fight back. All they can do is get their cars repossessed and their meager wages garnished.

    I don’t know when the next crash will happen, but it could be much worse than 2008 was. An entire generation could get wiped out.

    I wrote this on May of 2017, and it still stands to describe exactly what the sneaky scoundrels at The Economist magazine are hinting at. This explains why European Christians have allowed their countries to be destroyed by mass immigration:

    No, I am not laying the mass immigration invasion currently destroying the United States at anyone’s feet. I am saying that the baby boomer generation as a whole did not do anything to stop the obvious destruction of mass immigration. My opinion is that the financialization(debt tricks) written about by Kevin Phillips was deliberately used to buy off a generation or two of Americans while the 1965 Immigration Act was doing its damage.

     


    I think in decades and generations, and it is clear that the type of demographic transformation underway will cause civil wars. Others are starting to see it too. Enoch Powell saw it, why didn’t they act? I think the globalized central banks bought off the natural instinct of some Americans, mostly those born before 1965.

     

    , @Charles Pewitt
    I wrote this in May of 2017:

    The anti-White nonsense ends when the globalized central banks’ ability to conjure up cash ends. To save Western civilization or European Christendom or the White race or whatever you want to call it, it will be necessary to allow a complete and total economic collapse.

     


    The globalized central banks are involved in the greatest inter-generational ripoff scam of all time. That is why we find negative interest rates and zero interest rates and asset purchases and quantitative easing and money printing and all the rest. Debt created and sustained by the monetary extremism of central banks has been used to buy off the greedy dolts born before 1965. Mass immigration is only tolerated because of the greedy scum who are bought off by the machinations of the globalized central banks.

     


    The greedy scum born before 1965 will deserve the curses of those who come after. They stood by and did nothing while their nations were turned into third world hellholes.

    This young guy Jesse Colombo has also been on this Fed-induced-asset-bubbles-benefiting-the-baby-boomers kick.

    Colombo is bent out of shape because Upper Hudson Cortez(UHC) is getting all this media attention when her economic worldview is dumb as Hell.

    Colombo rightly blames the Federal Reserve Bank for income inequality and the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate that benefit older Americans.

    If you ain't talking central banking, you ain't talking.

    Andrew Jackson would be on Jesse Colombo's side.

    Central banking and the War On Whitey(WOW) and AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION and inter-generational financial attacks and mass immigration and demography are the subtext of politics in the United States and other European Christian nations.

    I wrote this in October of 2017:

    The War On Whitey(WOW) will be won by Whites born after the year 1965. I see the War On Whitey as being an internecine war conducted by evil baby boomer scum such as Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Clinton, Bush, Obama and Hillary are just fronts for larger demographic forces at work in the world.

     


    Whites born after the year 1965 can refuse to fight on the battlefields of their enemies choosing. Government debt repudiation will be the superweapon used by Whites born after 1965 to put an end to the anti-White attacks currently underway.

     


    The White baby boomers who are attacking their own young people know that monetary policy is the only thing propping up the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate. Baby boomers are the ones benefiting from the money printing and asset purchases of the globalized central banks.

     


    DEBT AND DEMOGRAPHY

     


    Treasonous baby boomers are the one global cohort that is keeping the War On Whitey going. Once the baby boomers are financially liquidated by government debt repudiation, the Whites born after 1965 will defeat the anti-White evil that is conducting the War On Whitey.

    I always hated baby boomer scumbags such as George W Bush and Al Gore and Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and now Trump is going full-bore baby boomer right off the cliff.

    This young guy Nick Fuentes got scrappy with Boston-born Cotton Baron Richard Bertand Spencer and it was funny as Hell. Both of them have their good points. Richard Spencer and Nick Fuentes may very well love individual baby boomers, but they both know that the baby boomer generation, as a whole, is treasonous and evil beyond description. Don't hurt to try to describe it, though!

    Here is another one worth thinking about!

    https://www.oftwominds.com/blogmar19/China-fragile3-19.html

    Trade Isn’t China’s Only Worry
    March 6, 2019

    Trade is only one manifestation of much deeper economic insecurities and imbalances.

    China’s enormous successes–raising hundreds of millions out of poverty, landing a rover on the dark side of the moon, etc.–are well known. Less appreciated is China’s increasing vulnerability to financial instability arising from asymmetries that cannot be resolved by tweaking trade policies.

    As this article explains, The China Story That Is Far Bigger Than Apple, China’s trade balance–trade surpluses for decades– is close to slipping into trade deficits.

    At the same time, China’s once-mighty pool of savings has diminished as consumption has risen. As a result, China now needs foreign investment more than it did in the previous era.

    Chinese businesses have borrowed around $2 trillion in US dollar-denominated debt in the past few years, requiring the acquisition of dollars to service the debt.

    So far this sounds like a typical case of a fast-growth economy maturing into a trade-deficit, debt-dependent consumption economy.

    What the article misses the staggering rise in the cost of living in China over the past two decades. Some services are still dirt-cheap–subway fares are extremely cheap–and private healthcare is a mere fraction of healthcare costs in the U.S.

    But other costs–housing, food, clothing, etc.–have shot up to the point that our on-the-ground correspondents report that living expenses aren’t much different than in the U.S.

    Officially, inflation is low in China, but the reality is not so cheery: “Domestic sentiment is definitely very bad, perhaps even worse than during the 2008 global financial crisis,” said Fred Hu.

    Recall that wages for college graduates are around $1,100 per month (7600 RMB), with $1,500 per month (10,000 RMB) being an above-average salary.

    While white-collar wages are $13,000 annually, apartments in first and even second tier cities are similar in cost to desirable U.S. cities. Rent for a small flat is $800 USD in Shanghai, more than half the average salary, and typically cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy.

    As I’ve noted before, roughly 3/4 of all household wealth in China is tied up in real estate, where it is effectively dead-money, earning no yield and largely illiquid outside of Beijing and Shanghai.

    Reflecting a broad malaise, China’s stock market has dropped by 25% in 2018 while its currency weakened against the USD (by official design, of course).

    One question no one is asking seems glaringly obvious: if everything is going great in China’s economy, why did President Xi feel compelled to declare himself president for life? Why is China rushing to install an Orwellian system of monitoring of behavior, online activity, etc., with heavy penalties for those who violate official norms?

    Here’s another obvious question: what is it saying about China’s future prospects that those who know China best (i.e. insiders) are fleeing the yuan and moving their capital overseas?

    We might also ask why critics of official policy are censored or even swept out of view. Are these the actions of a secure, confident ruling elite? The short answer is no, and some of that insecurity is undoubtedly the result of the increasingly fragile nature of China’s growth story.

    Simply put, trade is only one manifestation of much deeper economic insecurities and imbalances.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Something I find odd is what determines when a losing side's symbols are prohibited or permitted?

    After the bolsheviks took over, supporters of the Czar (Whites) were rounded up and killed, or fled. People did not dare to fly the tricolor, or display symbols of that regime. Almost 80 years later when the USSR fell, Russia adopted the old tricolor and there is some nostalgia emerging about the Czar.

    Meanwhile after the US Civil War, Lincoln had Dixie played during a parade. Many northern people expressed admiration for the Southerners. The rebel flag was proudly displayed for years. An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film 'Birth of a Nation'. Another occupant of that office displayed a portrait of General Lee. Later we had a famous TV show featuring a giant rebel flag on a Dodge Charger. Kids in the 70s adorned their jeans jackets with rebel flags to show the world they were 'rebels'.

    Today the rebel flag is banned in most places, the model of the Dukes of Hazzard car has its flag blurred out, Confederate statues are being torn down and any expression of sympathy for the Confederates means being ostracized from polite society let alone politics.

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols. Sure in West Germany they were anal about that part of their history and banned such symbols right after the war. There was also the Nuremberg trials. But outside of Germany people could display Nazi symbols, express admiration for the fighting ability of the Germany military and discuss whether the policies the Nazis put into place in the 1930s helped to end the depression in Germany.

    Do that today and you will be ostracized.

    Why is this so? Why in one case do the symbols of the losers get to be displayed immediately after a loss, while the symbols of another loser group are prohibited? Why does a losing group suddenly become toxic decades or even a century after the event, while a previously banned group is allowed back into the mainstream? In one case time seems to have healed old wounds while in the other case it seems to have caused more hatred than that which existed at the time of the conflict.

    Your examples have something in common and it rhymes with booze; consider the commandment not to take the Lord’s name in vain, and what effect that would have after millennia of study. Symbols are passively accepted by some people (we call these people “redditors”) and obsessed over, even displacing the symbolized, by others.

    Well, it can go stranger. In Finland the Whites won the Civil War but they're endlessly demonized by the academia and the media. The right-wing used to hold its ground but strangely it has completely folded since the USSR collapsed - we've had the right-wing party founded by the Civil War victors in power for the last years but these days they're more interested in defending gay marriage, transsexualism and mass immigration than their own founders.

    We've gotten to the point where we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the country without even mentioning the White victors of the Civil War in the ceremonies once but we didn't fail to praise the revolutionaries for destroying the empire. So now we have the ex-KGB guy in charge of Russia criticizing Lenin and formerly White parties of formerly White Finland praising Lenin.

    Makes me wonder what's the point of fighting wars if it can all just get turned around by politics anyway.

It’s where a lot of rich people of Mediterranean descent in the Seattle area choose to live, probably because it’s the closest suburb to the old Jewish and Italian neighborhoods in central and South Seattle. Still, I didn’t realize it was that Jewish.

    If my memory serves me correctly, there have been actual hate crimes in Mercer Island in recent years. One involved a Catholic church defaced with swastikas, and another a Messianic Jewish (Jews for Jesus) temple which had its scrolls somehow abused. These hate crimes were never widely publicized, however. The perpetrators were Jewish.

    The situation is that we have developed a Zero Tolerance policy for any criticism of either Israel, Americans who are Jewish, or the relationship between the two.

    The reason for this is that such criticism is on the Slippery Slope to excluding people from golf courses, smashing shop windows, expelling people from the country and eventually, internment in camps ending in mass executions. Since there is a lot of guilt borne for the end stage -- complicity in the case of much of Europe, a sense of having not done enough to stop it in the U.S. -- you have Zero Tolerance.

    With that in mind, Ilhan Omar, M.C. has definitely breached the Zero Tolerance policy, but is anything she has said (so far) worse than statements attributed to Pat Buchannan?

    The Instapundit Glenn Reynolds stated this morning "American Jews have largely identified with the immigrants the Democrats have sought to encourage, seeing them as akin to their ancestors who fled to America. In fact, they’re more like the people those ancestors were fleeing from."

    That is pretty much my view about Ms. Omar and the people criticizing her -- am I violating Zero Tolerance? It is entertaining to watch the Democrats deal with Zero Tolerance -- is that Thoughtcrime?

    And one more thought-crimey observation. Weren't the ancestors of many Jews in America fleeing Orthodox Christians? Aren't Orthodox Christians the one group we are pretty good about excluding? Israeli Jews and Orthodox Christians happen to be allies of convenience against their common persecutors, accounting for the rift between Netanyahu and many Americans?

    Here is another one worth thinking about!

    https://www.oftwominds.com/blogmar19/China-fragile3-19.html

    Trade Isn't China's Only Worry
    March 6, 2019

    Trade is only one manifestation of much deeper economic insecurities and imbalances.

    China's enormous successes--raising hundreds of millions out of poverty, landing a rover on the dark side of the moon, etc.--are well known. Less appreciated is China's increasing vulnerability to financial instability arising from asymmetries that cannot be resolved by tweaking trade policies.

    As this article explains, The China Story That Is Far Bigger Than Apple, China's trade balance--trade surpluses for decades-- is close to slipping into trade deficits.

    At the same time, China's once-mighty pool of savings has diminished as consumption has risen. As a result, China now needs foreign investment more than it did in the previous era.

    Chinese businesses have borrowed around $2 trillion in US dollar-denominated debt in the past few years, requiring the acquisition of dollars to service the debt.

    So far this sounds like a typical case of a fast-growth economy maturing into a trade-deficit, debt-dependent consumption economy.

    What the article misses the staggering rise in the cost of living in China over the past two decades. Some services are still dirt-cheap--subway fares are extremely cheap--and private healthcare is a mere fraction of healthcare costs in the U.S.

    But other costs--housing, food, clothing, etc.--have shot up to the point that our on-the-ground correspondents report that living expenses aren't much different than in the U.S.

    Officially, inflation is low in China, but the reality is not so cheery: "Domestic sentiment is definitely very bad, perhaps even worse than during the 2008 global financial crisis," said Fred Hu.

    Recall that wages for college graduates are around $1,100 per month (7600 RMB), with $1,500 per month (10,000 RMB) being an above-average salary.

    While white-collar wages are $13,000 annually, apartments in first and even second tier cities are similar in cost to desirable U.S. cities. Rent for a small flat is $800 USD in Shanghai, more than half the average salary, and typically cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy.

    As I've noted before, roughly 3/4 of all household wealth in China is tied up in real estate, where it is effectively dead-money, earning no yield and largely illiquid outside of Beijing and Shanghai.

    Reflecting a broad malaise, China's stock market has dropped by 25% in 2018 while its currency weakened against the USD (by official design, of course).

    One question no one is asking seems glaringly obvious: if everything is going great in China's economy, why did President Xi feel compelled to declare himself president for life? Why is China rushing to install an Orwellian system of monitoring of behavior, online activity, etc., with heavy penalties for those who violate official norms?

    Here's another obvious question: what is it saying about China's future prospects that those who know China best (i.e. insiders) are fleeing the yuan and moving their capital overseas?

    We might also ask why critics of official policy are censored or even swept out of view. Are these the actions of a secure, confident ruling elite? The short answer is no, and some of that insecurity is undoubtedly the result of the increasingly fragile nature of China's growth story.

    Simply put, trade is only one manifestation of much deeper economic insecurities and imbalances.

    There’s a guy who has been on John Bachelor said a couple of years ago that China has been in a trade deficit for several years, the government didn’t want to admit it, though.

    Writer David McWilliams penned an excellent article in the Financial Times: Quantitative Easing was the Father of Millennial Socialism.

    McWilliams notes that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's "cash for trash" QE scheme drove up asset prices and bailed out the baby boomers. The cost of course, was pricing millennials out of the housing market.

    Unorthodox policy penalizes the asset poor.

    What assets do millennials have? Hardly any. Instead they are saddled with mountains of student debt which, thanks to president George W. Bush, could no longer be discharged in bankruptcy.

    The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 would have better been called the Debt Slave Act of 2005.

    Rather than as a generation-on-generation beat-down, per your theory, I think it’s simply the US Feral Gov’t’s way of trying to keep the dollar in demand for a few more years. Think about this, #518, what generation are the current old people from? I don’t see many millenials down at the early bird special gummin’ down their creamed corn.

    We have already reached Peak Rich Old People in this country, and just one of three* stakes into the heart of the Golden Girls lifestyle has been the decade-long push of the FED to keep interest rates unaturally in the basement. People who may have saved up a coupla hundred thousand bucks, meaning a return of $800 – $1,000 monthly from a very conservative investement like a CD to supplement other sources has dropped to a hundred bucks. Or, they can go risky.

    No dude, the FED is simply trying to keep the party going a few more years. It and its government and banking controllers don’t care one bit about peons in ANY generation.

    Wouldn't it be reasonable to question their vaunted high IQ test results? It has a ridiculously large population with a giant peasant cohort still out in the fields somewhere, and high levels of corruption. Get high scores at all costs, including by cheating, is their motto, so why should we believe the numbers they shove on us?

    I can vouch for some of what #518 wrote above. The inflation has been really bad on the “middle-class” (the ones that don’t make their money via corruption).

    It makes sense that one of the leading satirists of woke culture would be an early middle-aged white guy who’s spent a considerable amount of time in academia (specifically in the humanities). When I briefly flirted with the idea of going to graduate school in literature as an undergrad, I had more than one (middle aged, white, male) professor essentially tell me, “No, don’t do it, be a lawyer, be anything else, but this field is hostile as hell to white men and you shouldn’t waste your time.” It’s sad, really.

    Writer David McWilliams penned an excellent article in the Financial Times: Quantitative Easing was the Father of Millennial Socialism.

    McWilliams notes that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's "cash for trash" QE scheme drove up asset prices and bailed out the baby boomers. The cost of course, was pricing millennials out of the housing market.

    Unorthodox policy penalizes the asset poor.

    What assets do millennials have? Hardly any. Instead they are saddled with mountains of student debt which, thanks to president George W. Bush, could no longer be discharged in bankruptcy.

    The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 would have better been called the Debt Slave Act of 2005.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Something I find odd is what determines when a losing side's symbols are prohibited or permitted?

    After the bolsheviks took over, supporters of the Czar (Whites) were rounded up and killed, or fled. People did not dare to fly the tricolor, or display symbols of that regime. Almost 80 years later when the USSR fell, Russia adopted the old tricolor and there is some nostalgia emerging about the Czar.

    Meanwhile after the US Civil War, Lincoln had Dixie played during a parade. Many northern people expressed admiration for the Southerners. The rebel flag was proudly displayed for years. An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film 'Birth of a Nation'. Another occupant of that office displayed a portrait of General Lee. Later we had a famous TV show featuring a giant rebel flag on a Dodge Charger. Kids in the 70s adorned their jeans jackets with rebel flags to show the world they were 'rebels'.

    Today the rebel flag is banned in most places, the model of the Dukes of Hazzard car has its flag blurred out, Confederate statues are being torn down and any expression of sympathy for the Confederates means being ostracized from polite society let alone politics.

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols. Sure in West Germany they were anal about that part of their history and banned such symbols right after the war. There was also the Nuremberg trials. But outside of Germany people could display Nazi symbols, express admiration for the fighting ability of the Germany military and discuss whether the policies the Nazis put into place in the 1930s helped to end the depression in Germany.

    Do that today and you will be ostracized.

    Why is this so? Why in one case do the symbols of the losers get to be displayed immediately after a loss, while the symbols of another loser group are prohibited? Why does a losing group suddenly become toxic decades or even a century after the event, while a previously banned group is allowed back into the mainstream? In one case time seems to have healed old wounds while in the other case it seems to have caused more hatred than that which existed at the time of the conflict.

    Well, it can go stranger. In Finland the Whites won the Civil War but they’re endlessly demonized by the academia and the media. The right-wing used to hold its ground but strangely it has completely folded since the USSR collapsed – we’ve had the right-wing party founded by the Civil War victors in power for the last years but these days they’re more interested in defending gay marriage, transsexualism and mass immigration than their own founders.

    We’ve gotten to the point where we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the country without even mentioning the White victors of the Civil War in the ceremonies once but we didn’t fail to praise the revolutionaries for destroying the empire. So now we have the ex-KGB guy in charge of Russia criticizing Lenin and formerly White parties of formerly White Finland praising Lenin.

    There are NO "Actual Nazis" in the literal sense and haven't been since mid-1945.

    There are left a very few nonagenarian and centenarian authentic former Nazis. I've met a couple (thirty years ago when they were in their fifties and sixties and seventies.) In Germany, in Spain, in South America and Mexico (!) and in the US. St. Louis had a lot of Germans and a few German Jews as well. I saw Jews with tattooed arms in the Target on Manchester Road as a kid. St. Louis attracted both. It's a German town to an extent.

    There are a few people calling themselves National Socialists in the more abstract sense. I guess the survivors of Rockwell's movement are still alive, or a few of them, all would be very old now. The youngest might be 65 or 70. Eric Thomson is still alive as far as I know. If you could produce a hundred in the US, minus known ADL/$PLC/FBI/ATF informants, I'd be flummoxed.

    There are fetishists that like to dress up in NSDAP SA , or SS uniforms or some simulacrum of same, most of them are Jews or homosexuals or both. There are also Waffen SS military reenactors. Few have any political leanings as such.

    No, by "anti-Semitism" what you mean is that the Lutherans--and Catholics over in St. Paul--tended to have their own separate social and business networks. Living in neighborhoods with each other, renting housing to each other, hiring each other, doing business with each other, marrying each other.

    In other words ... what Jews have been doing in Europe for the last couple thousand years--even more aggressively. Why in fact Jews--rejecting assimilation--were able to maintain themselves as a separate tribe.

    But over course, other people doing the same, makes it harder for Jews to wiggle in and do their middle man minority shtick there--and is bad, bad, bad! Of course, no one is forcing Jews to live there--they don't farm the prairies, their livelihood is not fixed to that land. They could pack back up and leave if they find the place uncomfortable. But no ... it must be penetrated! Jews must do their middle manning here there and everywhere and everyone else must smile, bend over and accomodate them.

    Not THE leading cause, but one of the causes.

    At that time, the banks all had provisions in their credit card agreements for arbitration with the NAF, which was a scam run by the banks. The NAF almost always ruled for the credit card companies, so the companies didn’t even have to face a friendly judge to get judgments.

    With that combination, the banks went absolutely nuts giving out massive credit lines, knowing the suckers could not use bankruptcy or even the courts to get out of the mess.

    Around the time of the crash of 2008, the Minnesota AG office closed down NAF.

    I personally found myself with over $100,000 of credit card debt after the crash, which I had used to keep some rental properties afloat. When the crash came, I lost the rental properties. I was able to fight off the credit card companies, without even hiring a lawyer, using legal strategies based on their bad records, their illegal debt collection practices, and the mess arbitration was in after NAF closed. I wound up paying 5 – 10 cents on the dollar for all my debts. And that includes paying off my USAA credit card in full. Other than USAA, I paid an aggregate of less than 2 cents on the dollar.

    The strategies I used generally don’t work anymore, except for Sychrony store credit cards. Those can be beaten easily. The big banks can now win almost 100% of their credit card cases now.

    The student loan situation is even worse. Practices that would land bankers in prison are not only legal, but standard practices for student loans. And there is almost zero chance at bankruptcy.

    We don’t have the real estate bubble we had in 2008, but the combination of student loan debt, credit card debt, and sub prime auto loan debt is about as bad as it was in those days. And the little people have no way to fight back. All they can do is get their cars repossessed and their meager wages garnished.

People who may have saved up a coupla hundred thousand bucks, meaning a return of $800 - $1,000 monthly from a very conservative investement like a CD to supplement other sources has dropped to a hundred bucks. Or, they can go risky.

    The right approach is to make the barriers to entry stronger. Charles Murray correctly surmised that only 20% of the population, at most, is capable of completing what used to be a true college degree program.

    With that limited number, it would be possible to financially assist a greater portion of students. The future earnings of truly qualified students would be more likely to cover repayment too.

    Ron Unz has proposed that Harvard, the famous hedge fund in Cambridge Massachusetts, easily could, and should, just let students go there for free. This practice would make sense there, and at other colleges, if it was paying to prepare the most talented among us to make the future contributions that only they are capable of. It would be a good investment.

    The situation is that we have developed a Zero Tolerance policy for any criticism of either Israel, Americans who are Jewish, or the relationship between the two.

    The reason for this is that such criticism is on the Slippery Slope to excluding people from golf courses, smashing shop windows, expelling people from the country and eventually, internment in camps ending in mass executions. Since there is a lot of guilt borne for the end stage — complicity in the case of much of Europe, a sense of having not done enough to stop it in the U.S. — you have Zero Tolerance.

    With that in mind, Ilhan Omar, M.C. has definitely breached the Zero Tolerance policy, but is anything she has said (so far) worse than statements attributed to Pat Buchannan?

    The Instapundit Glenn Reynolds stated this morning “American Jews have largely identified with the immigrants the Democrats have sought to encourage, seeing them as akin to their ancestors who fled to America. In fact, they’re more like the people those ancestors were fleeing from.”

    That is pretty much my view about Ms. Omar and the people criticizing her — am I violating Zero Tolerance? It is entertaining to watch the Democrats deal with Zero Tolerance — is that Thoughtcrime?

    And one more thought-crimey observation. Weren’t the ancestors of many Jews in America fleeing Orthodox Christians? Aren’t Orthodox Christians the one group we are pretty good about excluding? Israeli Jews and Orthodox Christians happen to be allies of convenience against their common persecutors, accounting for the rift between Netanyahu and many Americans?

    Writer David McWilliams penned an excellent article in the Financial Times: Quantitative Easing was the Father of Millennial Socialism.

    McWilliams notes that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke's "cash for trash" QE scheme drove up asset prices and bailed out the baby boomers. The cost of course, was pricing millennials out of the housing market.

    Unorthodox policy penalizes the asset poor.

    What assets do millennials have? Hardly any. Instead they are saddled with mountains of student debt which, thanks to president George W. Bush, could no longer be discharged in bankruptcy.

    The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 would have better been called the Debt Slave Act of 2005.

    I wrote this on May of 2017, and it still stands to describe exactly what the sneaky scoundrels at The Economist magazine are hinting at. This explains why European Christians have allowed their countries to be destroyed by mass immigration:

    No, I am not laying the mass immigration invasion currently destroying the United States at anyone’s feet. I am saying that the baby boomer generation as a whole did not do anything to stop the obvious destruction of mass immigration. My opinion is that the financialization(debt tricks) written about by Kevin Phillips was deliberately used to buy off a generation or two of Americans while the 1965 Immigration Act was doing its damage.

    I think in decades and generations, and it is clear that the type of demographic transformation underway will cause civil wars. Others are starting to see it too. Enoch Powell saw it, why didn’t they act? I think the globalized central banks bought off the natural instinct of some Americans, mostly those born before 1965.

Mass immigration is only tolerated because of the greedy scum who are bought off by the machinations of the globalized central banks.

    I think the only way to address is indirectly, but requiring student loans to be subject to risk-based pricing so that students with subpar grades and scores are turned down, or only offered loans at rates that make it unlikely they would go forward. At the same time, make universities co-signers on student loans and on the hook for repayment (say up to 25%) of the outstanding balance if the student defaults. That would result in higher ed shedding a bunch of useless degrees and being forced to consider how much financial pain they are willing to potentially take on by letting in underqualified students.

    No, by “anti-Semitism” what you mean is that the Lutherans–and Catholics over in St. Paul–tended to have their own separate social and business networks. Living in neighborhoods with each other, renting housing to each other, hiring each other, doing business with each other, marrying each other.

    In other words … what Jews have been doing in Europe for the last couple thousand years–even more aggressively. Why in fact Jews–rejecting assimilation–were able to maintain themselves as a separate tribe.

    But over course, other people doing the same, makes it harder for Jews to wiggle in and do their middle man minority shtick there–and is bad, bad, bad! Of course, no one is forcing Jews to live there–they don’t farm the prairies, their livelihood is not fixed to that land. They could pack back up and leave if they find the place uncomfortable. But no … it must be penetrated! Jews must do their middle manning here there and everywhere and everyone else must smile, bend over and accomodate them.

    Not able to get a job, not able to buy a house, not able to shop in certain stores.. that seems bad enough to me.Sure it was better than Nazi Germany - that's a low bar.


    Read this and judge for yourself whether 1930s Minneapolis style anti-Semitism was within the historic American mainstream or contrary to its spirit:

    https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/10/18/anti_semitism_mpls_history

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how "nice", were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs. Ultimately these attempts backfired - our present civil rights regime, which prohibits discrimination in what were once believed to be purely private spheres, was in large part a result of the overreach practiced in place like Minneapolis (as well as against blacks in the South). Had people in places like Minnesota not gone so overboard (and again contrary to American historic norms - in general the US had no anti-Semitic history) in declaring most of Minneapolis to be Judenrein, the Federal government would not have come in with such a harsh hand in order to swing the pendulum back the other way (and farther). We see the same thing (writ on a larger scale) in Germany itself - Germany did not want their "race" polluted by Jews (who are in reality another largely European people) so in the end they get millions of Muslims instead. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind. The ancients counseled moderation because they knew that if you go for all or nothing, one of the possible outcomes is nothing.

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely - what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.

    American Jews and American Muslims have a lot of concrete interests in common regarding public policy *inside the United States of America* and it’s in both communities interests not to let disagreements about Israel derail that.

    ROTFL. But US is a world power, and what happens INSIDE the US affects the outside the world.
    It was INSIDE the US government that plots were hatched to invade Iraq, destroy Libya, and mess up Syria by aiding terrorists. It was INSIDE the US that Jewish Power bought up all politicians to support the Zionist landgrab in West Bank. Invade-Invite has made US power into a matter of Inside-Outside. When a nation becomes an empire, the two are inseparable.

    Anyway, since Yglesias is a typical case among Jews, I think it's about time white people should cut their ties to the Jewish community. If Jews want to ally with Muslims against whites, okay, go right ahead. But stop asking white people to fight Wars for Israel and support Zionist tyranny over Palestine.

    If anything, I'd say whites in US/EU and Palestinians in W. Bank have much in common in that both peoples have been denied identity and territory due to Jewish Power.

    Anyway, Ygly guy seems to be saying, "American Muslims should overlook Zionist oppression of Palestinians and Muslims abroad to join with Jews against whites." It is so Judeo-Centric.
    Wouldn't a better argument be "American Jews should stop supporting Zionist tyranny over Palestinians and Wars for Israel(that have killed a million people) in order to win good graces of American Muslims"?

    American Jews are obsessed about foreign policy and the interests of Israel, BUT they tell Muslims to just forget about foreign policy and just focus on things INSIDE the US. But one of the reasons why so many Muslims ended up in the West is due to all these Wars for Israel fomented INSIDE THE US by Jewish Power. Ygly Guy is one arrogant ass. It's been Jewish Power that's been most responsible for these Wars for Israel beginning with the Gulf War that led to the destruction and demise of so much of the Muslim World, but Ygly guy tells Muslims to just forget about it and be useful tools of Jewish power against whitey as scapegoat for everything.

    No, they're pretty much just their own lobby pushing Islam through tolerance and immigration. Similarly, the lawDT'inos are all about strengthening their own community. Even issues obsessed lefty Jews really still fit in this pattern because the various things they push are just calculated, indirect ways of strengthening their own community.

    We've gotten to the point where we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the country without even mentioning the White victors of the Civil War in the ceremonies once but we didn't fail to praise the revolutionaries for destroying the empire.

    Central banking and the War On Whitey(WOW) and AFFORDABLE FAMILY FORMATION and inter-generational financial attacks and mass immigration and demography are the subtext of politics in the United States and other European Christian nations.

    The War On Whitey(WOW) will be won by Whites born after the year 1965. I see the War On Whitey as being an internecine war conducted by evil baby boomer scum such as Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Clinton, Bush, Obama and Hillary are just fronts for larger demographic forces at work in the world.

    Whites born after the year 1965 can refuse to fight on the battlefields of their enemies choosing. Government debt repudiation will be the superweapon used by Whites born after 1965 to put an end to the anti-White attacks currently underway.

    The White baby boomers who are attacking their own young people know that monetary policy is the only thing propping up the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate. Baby boomers are the ones benefiting from the money printing and asset purchases of the globalized central banks.

    DEBT AND DEMOGRAPHY

    Treasonous baby boomers are the one global cohort that is keeping the War On Whitey going. Once the baby boomers are financially liquidated by government debt repudiation, the Whites born after 1965 will defeat the anti-White evil that is conducting the War On Whitey.

    No, by "anti-Semitism" what you mean is that the Lutherans--and Catholics over in St. Paul--tended to have their own separate social and business networks. Living in neighborhoods with each other, renting housing to each other, hiring each other, doing business with each other, marrying each other.

    In other words ... what Jews have been doing in Europe for the last couple thousand years--even more aggressively. Why in fact Jews--rejecting assimilation--were able to maintain themselves as a separate tribe.

    But over course, other people doing the same, makes it harder for Jews to wiggle in and do their middle man minority shtick there--and is bad, bad, bad! Of course, no one is forcing Jews to live there--they don't farm the prairies, their livelihood is not fixed to that land. They could pack back up and leave if they find the place uncomfortable. But no ... it must be penetrated! Jews must do their middle manning here there and everywhere and everyone else must smile, bend over and accomodate them.

    ~~

    Interestingly "anti-Semitic" seems to correlate with the old pre-multicultural Minneapolis being one of the flat out nicest places in America. Essentially high trust, high social capital.

    Camps? Pogroms? Forced to wear a yellow star?

    Not able to get a job, not able to buy a house, not able to shop in certain stores.. that seems bad enough to me.Sure it was better than Nazi Germany – that’s a low bar.

    https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/10/18/anti_semitism_mpls_history

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how “nice”, were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs. Ultimately these attempts backfired – our present civil rights regime, which prohibits discrimination in what were once believed to be purely private spheres, was in large part a result of the overreach practiced in place like Minneapolis (as well as against blacks in the South). Had people in places like Minnesota not gone so overboard (and again contrary to American historic norms – in general the US had no anti-Semitic history) in declaring most of Minneapolis to be Judenrein, the Federal government would not have come in with such a harsh hand in order to swing the pendulum back the other way (and farther). We see the same thing (writ on a larger scale) in Germany itself – Germany did not want their “race” polluted by Jews (who are in reality another largely European people) so in the end they get millions of Muslims instead. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind. The ancients counseled moderation because they knew that if you go for all or nothing, one of the possible outcomes is nothing.

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely – what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.

    L.A. used to be a pretty "anti-Semitic" metro too.

    Which explains why Jews timorously avoided it and never tried to operate any global industries from there.

    This is depicted in forthcoming award-winning telenovela "The Shvartz Book," a 1940s period buddy story about classically trained Shakespearean actor Herb Yablinsky, who hires zoot-suited ruffian driver Nacho Baez to take him around Mid-Wilshire and Faircrest Heights for private performances of hit scenes from Fiddler On The Roof*

    Jack, i realize Jews have been quite successful with their propaganda. But at iSteve, where we stupid gentiles are the three digit IQ type, the usual mix of schmaltz, non-sequitars, lies and bald assertion do not actually an argument make.

    You're really not offering any arguments at all. But I will still answer what's there:

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how “nice”, were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs.
     
    -- Of course, Minnesota's gentiles did no such thing. Jews could come, buy property conduct their business, etc. etc. Which they did. Some gentiles simply didn't conduct business with Jews or open their social organizations to the extent that Jews would like. Anti-semitism!

    -- The religious clause of the 1st ammendment simply precludes a state religion and guarantees individuals free exercise (actually just precludes "Congress" establishing a state religion, states themselves could do whatever). There's absolutely nothing about such a clause that suggests your interpretation--the forced imposition of Jewish minoritarianism, i.e. Jewish supremacy, the right to force others to associate with you.

    Such an interpretation is absolutely laughable on any level--plain language, legal history, logic, social history. For starters it would have been a grotesque imposition of government busybodying, from an ammendment that is the reverse--keeping government off people's backs. (Certainly violates the spirit of the 4th ammendment.) Secondly, at the time plenty of people in the countryside resided in villages that were inhabited precisely by people of the same ethnic and religious character and belief--for precisely that purpose. (And this is even true today in pockets--Amish, some Mennonites, Satmar Hasidim, etc.)

    Most people--don't really believe that sort of nonsense even today. Most people actually feel like they are entitled to associate with whom they want. Work for whom they want; rent to whom they want; hire whom they want; associate with whom they want. That's why there's continual contention today around issues like cake baking and photography for homosexual weddings. In their gut most people know they are supposed to be free.

    Finally, no one had your laughable minoritarian--you must associate with us!--interpretation of the Constitution until the rise of the Jews. When the government started imposing this busybodying, lots of people thought not just "not in the Constitution", but "heretical to the spirit of the Constitution." Including notable anti-semities like ... Barry Goldwater.

    Schmaltz, lies, illogic.

    Ok, on to ...

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely – what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.
     
    Nothing here but assertion of your desired Jewish minoritarianism--minorities have special rights, majorities have no such rights--position and a really stupid analogy.

    There's nothing in logic, ethics, morality or history that suggests this.

    The human norm, of course, is for people to be living in communities of their same ethnic kin, speaking the same language, practicing the same religion, celebrating the same holidays, governed by the same morals and mores--the same "culture". That's normal, and there is no size limit on "normal". It might be a clan in an isolated village, it might a small region, or a vast nation. You don't live around different people, you live around your people.

    The gentiles were under no moral or ethical obligation to let the Jews even enter, much less live in their territoritiesat all. (Looking back it was a mistake. Though like all such ancient history fortunate for me.) If they want to say "no Jews allowed" that's completely moral and ethical. (I don't begrudge say the Japanese telling me "go away gaijin".) It's their territory, it belongs to their tribe. (Until someone takes it from them.) Just like the Jews, all other tribes on the planet get to define who's in, who's out. Their house, their rules.

    But the gentiles not only let the Jews into their territory--which they had no obligation to do--they allowed the Jews who wanted to join them--which they also didn't have to do.

    Remember it's the gentiles that have the open and universal religion here--Christianity--that welcomes everyone. The "gentiles" in a particular area were simply the local tribes--Celts, Picts, Angles, Saxons, Danes, Gauls, Alans, Vandals, Huns, Goths, etc. etc.--merged under Christianity.

    Rather it's the Jews, who kept themselves separate with their tribal religion, larded it up with a bunch of rules and practices to keep themselves from association with and absorption by the gentiles. (Telling people you're the chosen people and won't associate with them or become part of their community is probably not the best way to generate goodwill.) Stating this obvious fact--which Jews labor to obfuscate--tends to generate even more frothing verbal drivel. But it remains true. The gentile majority are the normal, open, integrating people in this saga. The Jews are the closed, tribal, non-integrating separatists. (As i've said before, the Jews who wanted to bone the farmer's daughter and chucked the tribal Jew thing to do so ... are my ancestors.)

    Jews chose to reject the tribal integration going on across Europe and hold themselves out as a separate, non-integrating tribe. The gentiles were generous enough--most places, most of the time--to let Jews reside in their territory even with their refusal to integrate. But the idea that this then puts some sort of obligation on gentiles--then or now--to open up their institutions, businesses, social organizations to this separate non-integrating (and lets admit it, hostile) tribe is out right laughable.

    ~~~

    Jack, you can keep stomping your feet and asserting your same old tired Jewish supremacist talking points as if they are a compelling argument. But that doesn't change the reality. They aren't compelling and aren't even an argument. They are just an assertion that the world somehow *must* be ordered the way Jews would like.

    But that's frankly ridiculous. Jewish minoritarianism--you must accomodate us and allow us to penetrate your community--has never been the human norm. And there's no logical or moral or ethical argument for it. Any people are entitled to live according to their culture in their territory--with the right to, and practical caveat of, keeping the other bastards from taking their territory from them. And the idea that any people--not just white gentiles--are under some sort of obligation to open up their communities and institutions to some other people--much less one that is explicitly a non-integrating and hostile tribe like the Jews!--is just frickkin' crazy.

    It’s all catastrophically, cathartically cyclical, really:

    “I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”

    If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.
     
    If the mice get bold and run to-and-fro near the elephants, making a nuisance of themselves, the elephants will eventually smash the wall and stomp on all vermin in sight. Some wilding elephants may also gore each other in the process, but that’s the nature of the beast. And the cycle continues.

    The right approach is to make the barriers to entry stronger. Charles Murray correctly surmised that only 20% of the population, at most, is capable of completing what used to be a true college degree program.

    With that limited number, it would be possible to financially assist a greater portion of students. The future earnings of truly qualified students would be more likely to cover repayment too.

    Ron Unz has proposed that Harvard, the famous hedge fund in Cambridge Massachusetts, easily could, and should, just let students go there for free. This practice would make sense there, and at other colleges, if it was paying to prepare the most talented among us to make the future contributions that only they are capable of. It would be a good investment.

    That incredibly useful and intelligent suggestion will never be implemented – ever – because the 20% chosen will be heavily weighted demographically to certain groups and that will never do.

    Because all people can do all things. I’m pretty sure for example that I could have been Bill Gates if the State had given me a computer when I was 7.

    As I explained above, maybe if the actual Shoah had never occurred, then the Golfocaust would not loom so large in American Jewish consciousness. Part of it is the desire not to allow any step on the slippery slope (keeping in mind that Auschwitz was the END point of German anti-Semitism, not the 1st step).

    And part of it, frankly, was the desire of American Jews (who in reality suffered very little), to steal some of the valor (or in this case suffering since suffering is the modern currency) of the European Jews. My father once told me that when he first came to the US he was working in a butcher shop and one of the women, unprompted by him but aware that he was a Holocaust survivor, said to him something like, " You know, we didn't have it so easy here either during the war. Meat was rationed and you could only get two chickens a week." He nodded politely but inside he was thinking, "you have no f_cking idea, lady." American Jews (and Americans in general) have such an easy life that they suffer from failure of the imagination and can't really imagine how shitty the world can be, so if their Starbucks runs out of caramel syrup for the afternoon, they imagine that they are suffering the privations of Stalin's Russia.

    Jack, let's curb all that fake enthusiasm and empathy for universal human suffering, and just focus on reality for a moment.

    Judging from the megabytes of comments posted here by both of us, it is more than fair to assume that Jack D and bored identity don't give a sh!t about any of Omar's Pre-American Tribal Tribulations.

    Why would they?

    Not having to bother about prevalent Shittines of the Second, or Third Worlds was exactly how America became the Envy of the First, Second, and Third Worlds...

    So far, we are in agreement.

    Would you say that forcing Americans to try to pick up and carry Omar's baggage - so they 'can really imagine how shitty the world can be'- has anything at all to do with moral, cultural and political obligations rooted in American Core tradition?

    In America, They The People used to enjoy their constitutional right to be deliberately and unapologeticaly ignorant of the world's affairs.

    The Big Idea was that newcomers were overall welcome to join, but they were also expected to check their Potato Famine, and any other Schmaltz, at the entrance.

    "No one wants to hear your life story" used to be as American as apple pie, long before that very same idiom transgressed to 'as American as Anne Applebaum's Lie'

    The Anglo- Conformity model worked perfectly fine all the way till the last two decades of the 19th century - as all the Melting was done among English, Scotch, Irish, Dutch, Germans, and Swedes:

    "The Americans were once scattered all over Europe: here they are incorporated into one of the finest system of population which has ever appeared."

    That was written in 1782.

    It seems that these Hard Core Americans - cut of very similar cultural fabrics - although being deprived of Pizza Napoletana, and Tikkun Olam Neurosis , managed their internal and foreign affairs prettaay, prettaay good.

    For you, and tens of million of others, this uncomfortable truth has to be treated as a Hate Fact, because nobody likes to join the party late , only to figure out that the existing crowd was doing....prettaaay, prettaaay, prettaaay good even without your presence.

    The Melting Pot was a social construct cooked up by late comer(s) with the same apetite for destruction as Omar's, like it or not, Jack.

    The Melting Pot is Israel's play, that Israel's doesn't want to play.

    I remember a time when you couldn't walk into a bar bathroom without seeing a scribbled swastika.

    Joe, I remember when most bathroom graffiti, was just bathroom graffiti. For those too young to remember years ago a lot of public bathrooms had a locking mechanism that required a dime in the slot to open the stall door. So you could pee for free at the urinal, but the use of the stall cost a dime. This lead to the following bathroom poem…” Here I sit broken hearted, paid a dime and only farted.”

    Coates’s essay seems right now, especially this part: “And so we must imagine a new country. Reparations — by which I mean the full acceptance of our collective biography and its consequences — is the price we must pay to see ourselves squarely. … What I’m talking about is more than recompense for past injustices — more than a handout, a payoff, hush money, or a reluctant bribe.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Something I find odd is what determines when a losing side's symbols are prohibited or permitted?

    After the bolsheviks took over, supporters of the Czar (Whites) were rounded up and killed, or fled. People did not dare to fly the tricolor, or display symbols of that regime. Almost 80 years later when the USSR fell, Russia adopted the old tricolor and there is some nostalgia emerging about the Czar.

    Meanwhile after the US Civil War, Lincoln had Dixie played during a parade. Many northern people expressed admiration for the Southerners. The rebel flag was proudly displayed for years. An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film 'Birth of a Nation'. Another occupant of that office displayed a portrait of General Lee. Later we had a famous TV show featuring a giant rebel flag on a Dodge Charger. Kids in the 70s adorned their jeans jackets with rebel flags to show the world they were 'rebels'.

    Today the rebel flag is banned in most places, the model of the Dukes of Hazzard car has its flag blurred out, Confederate statues are being torn down and any expression of sympathy for the Confederates means being ostracized from polite society let alone politics.

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols. Sure in West Germany they were anal about that part of their history and banned such symbols right after the war. There was also the Nuremberg trials. But outside of Germany people could display Nazi symbols, express admiration for the fighting ability of the Germany military and discuss whether the policies the Nazis put into place in the 1930s helped to end the depression in Germany.

    Do that today and you will be ostracized.

    Why is this so? Why in one case do the symbols of the losers get to be displayed immediately after a loss, while the symbols of another loser group are prohibited? Why does a losing group suddenly become toxic decades or even a century after the event, while a previously banned group is allowed back into the mainstream? In one case time seems to have healed old wounds while in the other case it seems to have caused more hatred than that which existed at the time of the conflict.

    iSteve, I am pretty sure that the youth of today know nothing about the Nazis other than the Holocaust. WWII was fought solely because the Germans hated the Jews and the Soviets were our best buds.

    Whites born after the year 1965 can refuse to fight on the battlefields of their enemies choosing. Government debt repudiation will be the superweapon used by Whites born after 1965 to put an end to the anti-White attacks currently underway.

     


    The White baby boomers who are attacking their own young people know that monetary policy is the only thing propping up the asset bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate. Baby boomers are the ones benefiting from the money printing and asset purchases of the globalized central banks.

     


    DEBT AND DEMOGRAPHY

     


    Treasonous baby boomers are the one global cohort that is keeping the War On Whitey going. Once the baby boomers are financially liquidated by government debt repudiation, the Whites born after 1965 will defeat the anti-White evil that is conducting the War On Whitey.

     

    I don’t like the term “white” bc it is too broad and therefore meaningless. People who identify as scots-irish or scots are very different from more reserved ppl of English or German extract. The scots-Irish are not equipped to compete in a capitalist society and they are agitators with a Texas sized chip on their collective shoulders. Russians and Italians may be considered white, but come on, you have to draw the line somewhere. Instead of race, I suggest using country of origin as a barometer.

    I got a SCOTCH-IRISH ancestor named Givens, so I say God bless the SCOTCH-IRISH.

    Any notion of a "capitalist society" in the USA croaked in 1971 when Richard Ohio China Nixon refused to give some Frog gold for dollars and took the USA off the gold standard.

    The first question of capitalism is: What is the capital?

    You can't have capitalism in a debt-based fiat currency system.

    A Scotchman muses on his mysterious unfitness for commerce :-

    “And here is the prime condition of success, the great secret: concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it; adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.” – Andrew Carnegie

    McWilliams pointed to an Iron Curtain separating the Jewish population from almost every part of gentile life — including finding jobs, buying houses and even shopping at certain stores.

     

    Yeah, boy. It was another Shoah, for sure.

    Had people in places like Minnesota not gone so overboard (and again contrary to American historic norms – in general the US had no anti-Semitic history) in declaring most of Minneapolis to be Judenrein, the Federal government would not have come in with such a harsh hand in order to swing the pendulum back the other way (and farther).
     
    You can't seriously believe that.

    As I explained above, maybe if the actual Shoah had never occurred, then the Golfocaust would not loom so large in American Jewish consciousness. Part of it is the desire not to allow any step on the slippery slope (keeping in mind that Auschwitz was the END point of German anti-Semitism, not the 1st step).

    And part of it, frankly, was the desire of American Jews (who in reality suffered very little), to steal some of the valor (or in this case suffering since suffering is the modern currency) of the European Jews. My father once told me that when he first came to the US he was working in a butcher shop and one of the women, unprompted by him but aware that he was a Holocaust survivor, said to him something like, ” You know, we didn’t have it so easy here either during the war. Meat was rationed and you could only get two chickens a week.” He nodded politely but inside he was thinking, “you have no f_cking idea, lady.” American Jews (and Americans in general) have such an easy life that they suffer from failure of the imagination and can’t really imagine how shitty the world can be, so if their Starbucks runs out of caramel syrup for the afternoon, they imagine that they are suffering the privations of Stalin’s Russia.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Something I find odd is what determines when a losing side's symbols are prohibited or permitted?

    After the bolsheviks took over, supporters of the Czar (Whites) were rounded up and killed, or fled. People did not dare to fly the tricolor, or display symbols of that regime. Almost 80 years later when the USSR fell, Russia adopted the old tricolor and there is some nostalgia emerging about the Czar.

    Meanwhile after the US Civil War, Lincoln had Dixie played during a parade. Many northern people expressed admiration for the Southerners. The rebel flag was proudly displayed for years. An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film 'Birth of a Nation'. Another occupant of that office displayed a portrait of General Lee. Later we had a famous TV show featuring a giant rebel flag on a Dodge Charger. Kids in the 70s adorned their jeans jackets with rebel flags to show the world they were 'rebels'.

    Today the rebel flag is banned in most places, the model of the Dukes of Hazzard car has its flag blurred out, Confederate statues are being torn down and any expression of sympathy for the Confederates means being ostracized from polite society let alone politics.

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols. Sure in West Germany they were anal about that part of their history and banned such symbols right after the war. There was also the Nuremberg trials. But outside of Germany people could display Nazi symbols, express admiration for the fighting ability of the Germany military and discuss whether the policies the Nazis put into place in the 1930s helped to end the depression in Germany.

    Do that today and you will be ostracized.

    Why is this so? Why in one case do the symbols of the losers get to be displayed immediately after a loss, while the symbols of another loser group are prohibited? Why does a losing group suddenly become toxic decades or even a century after the event, while a previously banned group is allowed back into the mainstream? In one case time seems to have healed old wounds while in the other case it seems to have caused more hatred than that which existed at the time of the conflict.

    Lincoln liked Dixie, a song written long before the war. That’s neither here nor there.

    A remarkable aspect of the case was the involvement of apparent voodoo spells and curses, which it is claimed were aimed at both the victim, police, and social services. Images of the woman’s home released by police show lime fruits prepared with written messages and evidence found by police included whole ox tongues wrapped in wire and penetrated by nails and screws. The prosecution said these items were evidence of the practice of witchcraft.

    Ox tongues, nails, and screws? Not as fun as noose, bleach, ski masks, and maga hats(that got some serious juju voodoo.

    Good to know the West is so rational unlike them Africans. In the US, when a Muslim woman notices Jewish Power, it’s time to denounce the KKK. Great logic there. And we have to be on the lookout for ‘Islamophobia’ lest it lead to ugly violence against Muslims who have fared so wonderfully under the Islamophilic policies of Bush II and Obama. Just look at all the happy smiling faces in Libya, Iraq, and Syria. What nation could say no to such inclusion of US jets and bombs?

    Good thing we don’t have stuff like genital mutilation in the West based on superstition. The West is way more evolved with science-based practices such as killing babies up to birth, cutting off entire penises to make new ‘vaginas’, and letting men be ‘women’ because they feel like it. So much reason, so much logic.

    Here’s what you should have noticed about all of this: how quickly Jews and their allies turned what should have been an honest, open debate about Jewish influence into a denunciation of Omar for non-existent ‘anti-Semitism’; how the resulting House resolution was coopted and became explicitly anti-white; and that America is afflicted with a huge parasitic class who occupy themselves with bullshit like this.

    What did Matt Yglesias mean by this?

    https://twitter.com/mattyglesias/status/1104030100243341312

    American Jews and American Muslims have a lot of concrete interests in common regarding public policy *inside the United States of America* and it’s in both communities interests not to let disagreements about Israel derail that.

    ROTFL. But US is a world power, and what happens INSIDE the US affects the outside the world.
    It was INSIDE the US government that plots were hatched to invade Iraq, destroy Libya, and mess up Syria by aiding terrorists. It was INSIDE the US that Jewish Power bought up all politicians to support the Zionist landgrab in West Bank. Invade-Invite has made US power into a matter of Inside-Outside. When a nation becomes an empire, the two are inseparable.

    Anyway, since Yglesias is a typical case among Jews, I think it’s about time white people should cut their ties to the Jewish community. If Jews want to ally with Muslims against whites, okay, go right ahead. But stop asking white people to fight Wars for Israel and support Zionist tyranny over Palestine.

    If anything, I’d say whites in US/EU and Palestinians in W. Bank have much in common in that both peoples have been denied identity and territory due to Jewish Power.

    Anyway, Ygly guy seems to be saying, “American Muslims should overlook Zionist oppression of Palestinians and Muslims abroad to join with Jews against whites.” It is so Judeo-Centric.
    Wouldn’t a better argument be “American Jews should stop supporting Zionist tyranny over Palestinians and Wars for Israel(that have killed a million people) in order to win good graces of American Muslims”?

    American Jews are obsessed about foreign policy and the interests of Israel, BUT they tell Muslims to just forget about foreign policy and just focus on things INSIDE the US. But one of the reasons why so many Muslims ended up in the West is due to all these Wars for Israel fomented INSIDE THE US by Jewish Power. Ygly Guy is one arrogant ass. It’s been Jewish Power that’s been most responsible for these Wars for Israel beginning with the Gulf War that led to the destruction and demise of so much of the Muslim World, but Ygly guy tells Muslims to just forget about it and be useful tools of Jewish power against whitey as scapegoat for everything.

    Well, it can go stranger. In Finland the Whites won the Civil War but they're endlessly demonized by the academia and the media. The right-wing used to hold its ground but strangely it has completely folded since the USSR collapsed - we've had the right-wing party founded by the Civil War victors in power for the last years but these days they're more interested in defending gay marriage, transsexualism and mass immigration than their own founders.

    We've gotten to the point where we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the country without even mentioning the White victors of the Civil War in the ceremonies once but we didn't fail to praise the revolutionaries for destroying the empire. So now we have the ex-KGB guy in charge of Russia criticizing Lenin and formerly White parties of formerly White Finland praising Lenin.

    Makes me wonder what's the point of fighting wars if it can all just get turned around by politics anyway.

She was unmasked as Andrew Doyle, 40, a former private school teacher with a doctorate in early Renaissance poetry from Wadham College, Oxford...
     

    It makes sense that one of the leading satirists of woke culture would be an early middle-aged white guy who’s spent a considerable amount of time in academia (specifically in the humanities). When I briefly flirted with the idea of going to graduate school in literature as an undergrad, I had more than one (middle aged, white, male) professor essentially tell me, “No, don’t do it, be a lawyer, be anything else, but this field is hostile as hell to white men and you shouldn’t waste your time.” It’s sad, really.

    No, they’re pretty much just their own lobby pushing Islam through tolerance and immigration. Similarly, the lawDT’inos are all about strengthening their own community. Even issues obsessed lefty Jews really still fit in this pattern because the various things they push are just calculated, indirect ways of strengthening their own community. This is the future of political discourse: a dozen six years olds playing monopoly and arguing over the rules so as to make their own enrichment easier.

    There are NO “Actual Nazis” in the literal sense and haven’t been since mid-1945.

    There are left a very few nonagenarian and centenarian authentic former Nazis. I’ve met a couple (thirty years ago when they were in their fifties and sixties and seventies.) In Germany, in Spain, in South America and Mexico (!) and in the US. St. Louis had a lot of Germans and a few German Jews as well. I saw Jews with tattooed arms in the Target on Manchester Road as a kid. St. Louis attracted both. It’s a German town to an extent.

    There are a few people calling themselves National Socialists in the more abstract sense. I guess the survivors of Rockwell’s movement are still alive, or a few of them, all would be very old now. The youngest might be 65 or 70. Eric Thomson is still alive as far as I know. If you could produce a hundred in the US, minus known ADL/$PLC/FBI/ATF informants, I’d be flummoxed.

    There are fetishists that like to dress up in NSDAP SA , or SS uniforms or some simulacrum of same, most of them are Jews or homosexuals or both. There are also Waffen SS military reenactors. Few have any political leanings as such.

    I didn’t know much about Finland growing up except that they stood up to the Soviets in 1940. I couldn’t believe such a small country could face those odds. I also found it odd they had swastikas on their planes and initially thought they must be Germans.

    BTW we had an American actor born of Finnish immigrant parents who was a pretty good character player. His name was Albert Salmi. Is he known in Finland?

    The Finnish air force still uses the swastika a lot. It was dropped from being painted on the planes but it's still on flags, medals and other stuff.

    Unfortunately our patriots have been good at defending relatively meaningless business like swastikas ("we used it before the Nazis even existed and these Russians/Germans/Americans/etc who try to pressure us to drop it should learn our history" blah blah blah) and have done nothing at all to stop the leftist takeover of universities or to fight immigration. But I guess we will still have swastikas on the medals when the Finnish air force is running with Somalian pilots.

    The right-wing parties have been even worse than the left-wing parties on this as a Cold War legacy is that the right-wing wanted to imitate America/West Germany/some other place in the West while the left wanted to imitate the USSR/DDR/some other commie place. After the fall of the USSR it has been just a steady mindless push for westernization and since the West is diverse we must be diverse too.

    Finnish-American actors used to be something that got people exited and some Finn even in a minor role could be a big boost for a movie. There was a big wave of Finnish leftist migrants to the US around the time of the revolution and a lot kids and grandkids of that wave showed up in movies. Older generations would have known people like Salmi and the press used to write about them a lot but young people don't remember that period as those Finns in the US are pretty assimilated and intermarried by now.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Something I find odd is what determines when a losing side's symbols are prohibited or permitted?

    After the bolsheviks took over, supporters of the Czar (Whites) were rounded up and killed, or fled. People did not dare to fly the tricolor, or display symbols of that regime. Almost 80 years later when the USSR fell, Russia adopted the old tricolor and there is some nostalgia emerging about the Czar.

    Meanwhile after the US Civil War, Lincoln had Dixie played during a parade. Many northern people expressed admiration for the Southerners. The rebel flag was proudly displayed for years. An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film 'Birth of a Nation'. Another occupant of that office displayed a portrait of General Lee. Later we had a famous TV show featuring a giant rebel flag on a Dodge Charger. Kids in the 70s adorned their jeans jackets with rebel flags to show the world they were 'rebels'.

    Today the rebel flag is banned in most places, the model of the Dukes of Hazzard car has its flag blurred out, Confederate statues are being torn down and any expression of sympathy for the Confederates means being ostracized from polite society let alone politics.

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols. Sure in West Germany they were anal about that part of their history and banned such symbols right after the war. There was also the Nuremberg trials. But outside of Germany people could display Nazi symbols, express admiration for the fighting ability of the Germany military and discuss whether the policies the Nazis put into place in the 1930s helped to end the depression in Germany.

    Do that today and you will be ostracized.

    Why is this so? Why in one case do the symbols of the losers get to be displayed immediately after a loss, while the symbols of another loser group are prohibited? Why does a losing group suddenly become toxic decades or even a century after the event, while a previously banned group is allowed back into the mainstream? In one case time seems to have healed old wounds while in the other case it seems to have caused more hatred than that which existed at the time of the conflict.

    Can someone please explain why a swastika drawn on public property is anything other than a case of graffiti?

    Legally, it isn’t anything else (at least for now).

    Read this and judge for yourself whether 1930s Minneapolis style anti-Semitism was within the historic American mainstream or contrary to its spirit:

    https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/10/18/anti_semitism_mpls_history

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how "nice", were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs. Ultimately these attempts backfired - our present civil rights regime, which prohibits discrimination in what were once believed to be purely private spheres, was in large part a result of the overreach practiced in place like Minneapolis (as well as against blacks in the South). Had people in places like Minnesota not gone so overboard (and again contrary to American historic norms - in general the US had no anti-Semitic history) in declaring most of Minneapolis to be Judenrein, the Federal government would not have come in with such a harsh hand in order to swing the pendulum back the other way (and farther). We see the same thing (writ on a larger scale) in Germany itself - Germany did not want their "race" polluted by Jews (who are in reality another largely European people) so in the end they get millions of Muslims instead. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind. The ancients counseled moderation because they knew that if you go for all or nothing, one of the possible outcomes is nothing.

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely - what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.

    Jack, i realize Jews have been quite successful with their propaganda. But at iSteve, where we stupid gentiles are the three digit IQ type, the usual mix of schmaltz, non-sequitars, lies and bald assertion do not actually an argument make.

    You’re really not offering any arguments at all. But I will still answer what’s there:

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how “nice”, were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs.

    — Of course, Minnesota’s gentiles did no such thing. Jews could come, buy property conduct their business, etc. etc. Which they did. Some gentiles simply didn’t conduct business with Jews or open their social organizations to the extent that Jews would like. Anti-semitism!

    — The religious clause of the 1st ammendment simply precludes a state religion and guarantees individuals free exercise (actually just precludes “Congress” establishing a state religion, states themselves could do whatever). There’s absolutely nothing about such a clause that suggests your interpretation–the forced imposition of Jewish minoritarianism, i.e. Jewish supremacy, the right to force others to associate with you.

    Such an interpretation is absolutely laughable on any level–plain language, legal history, logic, social history. For starters it would have been a grotesque imposition of government busybodying, from an ammendment that is the reverse–keeping government off people’s backs. (Certainly violates the spirit of the 4th ammendment.) Secondly, at the time plenty of people in the countryside resided in villages that were inhabited precisely by people of the same ethnic and religious character and belief–for precisely that purpose. (And this is even true today in pockets–Amish, some Mennonites, Satmar Hasidim, etc.)

    Most people–don’t really believe that sort of nonsense even today. Most people actually feel like they are entitled to associate with whom they want. Work for whom they want; rent to whom they want; hire whom they want; associate with whom they want. That’s why there’s continual contention today around issues like cake baking and photography for homosexual weddings. In their gut most people know they are supposed to be free.

    Finally, no one had your laughable minoritarian–you must associate with us!–interpretation of the Constitution until the rise of the Jews. When the government started imposing this busybodying, lots of people thought not just “not in the Constitution”, but “heretical to the spirit of the Constitution.” Including notable anti-semities like … Barry Goldwater.

    Schmaltz, lies, illogic.

    Ok, on to …

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely – what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.

    Nothing here but assertion of your desired Jewish minoritarianism–minorities have special rights, majorities have no such rights–position and a really stupid analogy.

    There’s nothing in logic, ethics, morality or history that suggests this.

    The human norm, of course, is for people to be living in communities of their same ethnic kin, speaking the same language, practicing the same religion, celebrating the same holidays, governed by the same morals and mores–the same “culture”. That’s normal, and there is no size limit on “normal”. It might be a clan in an isolated village, it might a small region, or a vast nation. You don’t live around different people, you live around your people.

    The gentiles were under no moral or ethical obligation to let the Jews even enter, much less live in their territoritiesat all. (Looking back it was a mistake. Though like all such ancient history fortunate for me.) If they want to say “no Jews allowed” that’s completely moral and ethical. (I don’t begrudge say the Japanese telling me “go away gaijin”.) It’s their territory, it belongs to their tribe. (Until someone takes it from them.) Just like the Jews, all other tribes on the planet get to define who’s in, who’s out. Their house, their rules.

    But the gentiles not only let the Jews into their territory–which they had no obligation to do–they allowed the Jews who wanted to join them–which they also didn’t have to do.

    Remember it’s the gentiles that have the open and universal religion here–Christianity–that welcomes everyone. The “gentiles” in a particular area were simply the local tribes–Celts, Picts, Angles, Saxons, Danes, Gauls, Alans, Vandals, Huns, Goths, etc. etc.–merged under Christianity.

    Rather it’s the Jews, who kept themselves separate with their tribal religion, larded it up with a bunch of rules and practices to keep themselves from association with and absorption by the gentiles. (Telling people you’re the chosen people and won’t associate with them or become part of their community is probably not the best way to generate goodwill.) Stating this obvious fact–which Jews labor to obfuscate–tends to generate even more frothing verbal drivel. But it remains true. The gentile majority are the normal, open, integrating people in this saga. The Jews are the closed, tribal, non-integrating separatists. (As i’ve said before, the Jews who wanted to bone the farmer’s daughter and chucked the tribal Jew thing to do so … are my ancestors.)

    Jews chose to reject the tribal integration going on across Europe and hold themselves out as a separate, non-integrating tribe. The gentiles were generous enough–most places, most of the time–to let Jews reside in their territory even with their refusal to integrate. But the idea that this then puts some sort of obligation on gentiles–then or now–to open up their institutions, businesses, social organizations to this separate non-integrating (and lets admit it, hostile) tribe is out right laughable.

    ~~~

    Jack, you can keep stomping your feet and asserting your same old tired Jewish supremacist talking points as if they are a compelling argument. But that doesn’t change the reality. They aren’t compelling and aren’t even an argument. They are just an assertion that the world somehow *must* be ordered the way Jews would like.

    But that’s frankly ridiculous. Jewish minoritarianism–you must accomodate us and allow us to penetrate your community–has never been the human norm. And there’s no logical or moral or ethical argument for it. Any people are entitled to live according to their culture in their territory–with the right to, and practical caveat of, keeping the other bastards from taking their territory from them. And the idea that any people–not just white gentiles–are under some sort of obligation to open up their communities and institutions to some other people–much less one that is explicitly a non-integrating and hostile tribe like the Jews!–is just frickkin’ crazy.

The scots-Irish are not equipped to compete in a capitalist society and they are agitators with a Texas sized chip on their collective shoulders. Russians and Italians may be considered white, but come on, you have to draw the line somewhere. Instead of race, I suggest using country of origin as a barometer.

    If the mice get bold and run to-and-fro near the elephants, making a nuisance of themselves, the elephants will eventually smash the wall and stomp on all vermin in sight. Some wilding elephants may also gore each other in the process, but that’s the nature of the beast. And the cycle continues.

    Jack, your elephant vs. mouse analogy is even better than I initially realized.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha#Vahanas

    The Sanskrit word mūṣaka (mouse) is derived from the root mūṣ (stealing, robbing). It was essential to subdue the rat as a destructive pest, a type of vighna (impediment) that needed to be overcome. According to this theory, showing Ganesha as master of the rat demonstrates his function as Vigneshvara (Lord of Obstacles) and gives evidence of his possible role as a folk grāma-devatā (village deity) who later rose to greater prominence. Martin-Dubost notes a view that the rat is a symbol suggesting that Ganesha, like the rat, penetrates even the most secret places.

    He nodded politely but inside he was thinking, “you have no f_cking idea, lady.” American Jews (and Americans in general) have such an easy life that they suffer from failure of the imagination and can’t really imagine how shitty the world can be…”

    Jack, let’s curb all that fake enthusiasm and empathy for universal human suffering, and just focus on reality for a moment.

    Judging from the megabytes of comments posted here by both of us, it is more than fair to assume that Jack D and bored identity don’t give a sh!t about any of Omar’s Pre-American Tribal Tribulations.

    Why would they?

    Not having to bother about prevalent Shittines of the Second, or Third Worlds was exactly how America became the Envy of the First, Second, and Third Worlds…

    So far, we are in agreement.

    Would you say that forcing Americans to try to pick up and carry Omar’s baggage – so they ‘can really imagine how shitty the world can be’- has anything at all to do with moral, cultural and political obligations rooted in American Core tradition?

    In America, They The People used to enjoy their constitutional right to be deliberately and unapologeticaly ignorant of the world’s affairs.

    The Big Idea was that newcomers were overall welcome to join, but they were also expected to check their Potato Famine, and any other Schmaltz, at the entrance.

    “No one wants to hear your life story” used to be as American as apple pie, long before that very same idiom transgressed to ‘as American as Anne Applebaum’s Lie’

    The Anglo- Conformity model worked perfectly fine all the way till the last two decades of the 19th century – as all the Melting was done among English, Scotch, Irish, Dutch, Germans, and Swedes:

    “The Americans were once scattered all over Europe: here they are incorporated into one of the finest system of population which has ever appeared.”

    That was written in 1782.

    It seems that these Hard Core Americans – cut of very similar cultural fabrics – although being deprived of Pizza Napoletana, and Tikkun Olam Neurosis , managed their internal and foreign affairs prettaay, prettaay good.

    For you, and tens of million of others, this uncomfortable truth has to be treated as a Hate Fact, because nobody likes to join the party late , only to figure out that the existing crowd was doing….prettaaay, prettaaay, prettaaay good even without your presence.

    The Melting Pot was a social construct cooked up by late comer(s) with the same apetite for destruction as Omar’s, like it or not, Jack.

    The Melting Pot is Israel’s play, that Israel’s doesn’t want to play.

    Neither does bored identity.

    So, relax and stop acting like Melting Jack Flash

    Being really stupid and naive about the rest of the world is another luxury that we can no longer afford. You may think, "I couldn't tell a Pashtun from a Hazara if my life depended on it, and I'm proud of my ignorance - it's my right as an American to live in splendid isolation." Guess what - your life DOES depend on it (ask the people in the WTC) and splendid isolation is impossible when no point on the globe is more than 1/2 a day's journey from any other point. You may not be interested in the world but the world is interested in you. Could we do a LOT better job of keeping the rif-raff of the world out of our neighborhood? Sure, absolutely but unless you turn the US into North Korea you are never going to be able to seal it off completely.

    Anyway, you completely missed my point. Despite being ignorant of the world around them (on this we agree) Americans have never hesitated to compare their system to others and find America to be just as bad as, if not worse than, other places that are, in reality, infinitely worse. I see this both on the Left and the Right (just the places that they use as their benchmark varies). Sometimes this is just exaggeration for effect but other times it is rooted in that profound ignorance where people really think that (Trump, Bush, whomever) really is as evil as Saddam Hussein or Kim, etc. or that, going back to my original example, that wartime conditions in the US were in any way remotely comparable to those in Nazi occupied Poland.

    Why did Finland finally change? Was it the end of the Cold War and the USSR threat? Was it joining the EU?

    I didn't know much about Finland growing up except that they stood up to the Soviets in 1940. I couldn't believe such a small country could face those odds. I also found it odd they had swastikas on their planes and initially thought they must be Germans.

    BTW we had an American actor born of Finnish immigrant parents who was a pretty good character player. His name was Albert Salmi. Is he known in Finland?

    The Finnish air force still uses the swastika a lot. It was dropped from being painted on the planes but it’s still on flags, medals and other stuff.

    Unfortunately our patriots have been good at defending relatively meaningless business like swastikas (“we used it before the Nazis even existed and these Russians/Germans/Americans/etc who try to pressure us to drop it should learn our history” blah blah blah) and have done nothing at all to stop the leftist takeover of universities or to fight immigration. But I guess we will still have swastikas on the medals when the Finnish air force is running with Somalian pilots.

    The right-wing parties have been even worse than the left-wing parties on this as a Cold War legacy is that the right-wing wanted to imitate America/West Germany/some other place in the West while the left wanted to imitate the USSR/DDR/some other commie place. After the fall of the USSR it has been just a steady mindless push for westernization and since the West is diverse we must be diverse too.

    Finnish-American actors used to be something that got people exited and some Finn even in a minor role could be a big boost for a movie. There was a big wave of Finnish leftist migrants to the US around the time of the revolution and a lot kids and grandkids of that wave showed up in movies. Older generations would have known people like Salmi and the press used to write about them a lot but young people don’t remember that period as those Finns in the US are pretty assimilated and intermarried by now.

    It’s hate lashing. Our superiors hold a deeply ingrained hatred for whites, but they can’t just come out and say it. They, therefore, cook up a rational to justify attacking whites: they are merely responding to hateful provocations, not instigating them. That makes them the victims in their narrative as they victimize others. Convenient, isn’t it?

    I don't like the term "white" bc it is too broad and therefore meaningless. People who identify as scots-irish or scots are very different from more reserved ppl of English or German extract. The scots-Irish are not equipped to compete in a capitalist society and they are agitators with a Texas sized chip on their collective shoulders. Russians and Italians may be considered white, but come on, you have to draw the line somewhere. Instead of race, I suggest using country of origin as a barometer.

    I got a SCOTCH-IRISH ancestor named Givens, so I say God bless the SCOTCH-IRISH.

    Any notion of a “capitalist society” in the USA croaked in 1971 when Richard Ohio China Nixon refused to give some Frog gold for dollars and took the USA off the gold standard.

    The first question of capitalism is: What is the capital?

    You can’t have capitalism in a debt-based fiat currency system.

    What we have now is Central Banker Shysterism.

    "You know, we didn’t have it so easy here either during the war. Meat was rationed and you could only get two chickens a week.”

    He nodded politely but inside he was thinking, “you have no f_cking idea, lady.” American Jews (and Americans in general) have such an easy life that they suffer from failure of the imagination and can’t really imagine how shitty the world can be..."

     

    Jack, let's curb all that fake enthusiasm and empathy for universal human suffering, and just focus on reality for a moment.

    Judging from the megabytes of comments posted here by both of us, it is more than fair to assume that Jack D and bored identity don't give a sh!t about any of Omar's Pre-American Tribal Tribulations.

    Why would they?

    Not having to bother about prevalent Shittines of the Second, or Third Worlds was exactly how America became the Envy of the First, Second, and Third Worlds...

    So far, we are in agreement.

    Would you say that forcing Americans to try to pick up and carry Omar's baggage - so they 'can really imagine how shitty the world can be'- has anything at all to do with moral, cultural and political obligations rooted in American Core tradition?

    In America, They The People used to enjoy their constitutional right to be deliberately and unapologeticaly ignorant of the world's affairs.

    The Big Idea was that newcomers were overall welcome to join, but they were also expected to check their Potato Famine, and any other Schmaltz, at the entrance.

    "No one wants to hear your life story" used to be as American as apple pie, long before that very same idiom transgressed to 'as American as Anne Applebaum's Lie'

    The Anglo- Conformity model worked perfectly fine all the way till the last two decades of the 19th century - as all the Melting was done among English, Scotch, Irish, Dutch, Germans, and Swedes:

    "The Americans were once scattered all over Europe: here they are incorporated into one of the finest system of population which has ever appeared."

    That was written in 1782.

    It seems that these Hard Core Americans - cut of very similar cultural fabrics - although being deprived of Pizza Napoletana, and Tikkun Olam Neurosis , managed their internal and foreign affairs prettaay, prettaay good.

    For you, and tens of million of others, this uncomfortable truth has to be treated as a Hate Fact, because nobody likes to join the party late , only to figure out that the existing crowd was doing....prettaaay, prettaaay, prettaaay good even without your presence.

    The Melting Pot was a social construct cooked up by late comer(s) with the same apetite for destruction as Omar's, like it or not, Jack.

    The Melting Pot is Israel's play, that Israel's doesn't want to play.


    Neither does bored identity.


    So, relax and stop acting like Melting Jack Flash

    Being really stupid and naive about the rest of the world is another luxury that we can no longer afford. You may think, “I couldn’t tell a Pashtun from a Hazara if my life depended on it, and I’m proud of my ignorance – it’s my right as an American to live in splendid isolation.” Guess what – your life DOES depend on it (ask the people in the WTC) and splendid isolation is impossible when no point on the globe is more than 1/2 a day’s journey from any other point. You may not be interested in the world but the world is interested in you. Could we do a LOT better job of keeping the rif-raff of the world out of our neighborhood? Sure, absolutely but unless you turn the US into North Korea you are never going to be able to seal it off completely.

    Anyway, you completely missed my point. Despite being ignorant of the world around them (on this we agree) Americans have never hesitated to compare their system to others and find America to be just as bad as, if not worse than, other places that are, in reality, infinitely worse. I see this both on the Left and the Right (just the places that they use as their benchmark varies). Sometimes this is just exaggeration for effect but other times it is rooted in that profound ignorance where people really think that (Trump, Bush, whomever) really is as evil as Saddam Hussein or Kim, etc. or that, going back to my original example, that wartime conditions in the US were in any way remotely comparable to those in Nazi occupied Poland.

    A Scotchman muses on his mysterious unfitness for commerce :-

    “And here is the prime condition of success, the great secret: concentrate your energy, thought, and capital exclusively upon the business in which you are engaged. Having begun in one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it; adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about it.” – Andrew Carnegie

    Camps? Pogroms? Forced to wear a yellow star?

    Not able to get a job, not able to buy a house, not able to shop in certain stores.. that seems bad enough to me.Sure it was better than Nazi Germany - that's a low bar.


    Read this and judge for yourself whether 1930s Minneapolis style anti-Semitism was within the historic American mainstream or contrary to its spirit:

    https://www.mprnews.org/story/2017/10/18/anti_semitism_mpls_history

    AFAIK, the writ of the Constitution, including 1st Amendment religious freedoms, applies from sea to shining sea so that no group of people, no matter how "nice", were entitled to set up an un-Constitutional regime declaring a certain territory to be exclusively theirs. Ultimately these attempts backfired - our present civil rights regime, which prohibits discrimination in what were once believed to be purely private spheres, was in large part a result of the overreach practiced in place like Minneapolis (as well as against blacks in the South). Had people in places like Minnesota not gone so overboard (and again contrary to American historic norms - in general the US had no anti-Semitic history) in declaring most of Minneapolis to be Judenrein, the Federal government would not have come in with such a harsh hand in order to swing the pendulum back the other way (and farther). We see the same thing (writ on a larger scale) in Germany itself - Germany did not want their "race" polluted by Jews (who are in reality another largely European people) so in the end they get millions of Muslims instead. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind. The ancients counseled moderation because they knew that if you go for all or nothing, one of the possible outcomes is nothing.

    Analogies with what Jews practiced for themselves fail completely - what a small, beleaguered minority does to preserve itself is not the same as what the ruling majority should do. If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.

    And I’m sure that Minnesota Public Radio is an unimpeachable source when it comes to ethnic grievance mongering. After all, why would “MPR News Staff” misrepresent the truth?

  185. …maybe if the actual Shoah had never occurred, then the Golfocaust would not loom so large in American Jewish consciousness.

    My guess is the opposite.

    It’s all catastrophically, cathartically cyclical, really:

    “I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”

    If mice hide themselves inside the wall in order to prevent being trampled by the elephants, it does not follow that the elephants should try to hide inside the wall also.
     
    If the mice get bold and run to-and-fro near the elephants, making a nuisance of themselves, the elephants will eventually smash the wall and stomp on all vermin in sight. Some wilding elephants may also gore each other in the process, but that’s the nature of the beast. And the cycle continues.

    Jack, your elephant vs. mouse analogy is even better than I initially realized.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganesha#Vahanas

    The Sanskrit word mūṣaka (mouse) is derived from the root mūṣ (stealing, robbing). It was essential to subdue the rat as a destructive pest, a type of vighna (impediment) that needed to be overcome. According to this theory, showing Ganesha as master of the rat demonstrates his function as Vigneshvara (Lord of Obstacles) and gives evidence of his possible role as a folk grāma-devatā (village deity) who later rose to greater prominence. Martin-Dubost notes a view that the rat is a symbol suggesting that Ganesha, like the rat, penetrates even the most secret places.

    We do know that the school where the defacements occurred will conduct a read-aloud of “A Picture Book of Anne Frank,”
     
    I'm tired of hearing about Anne Frank and the National Socialists responsible for her death. Why not being up Leo Frank, and the Democratic socialists responsible for his death?

    Why not bring up the 12 year old girl Leo Frank raped and murdered, Mary Phagan?

    Only one person was responsible for Leo Frank’s death. Leo Frank.
     
    So you're saying the colored guy was innocent?

    I'm told that's not the way to bet.

    You can bet on the favorite all you want, but it’s a stupid bet if the game is over and we already know the underdog won.

    Frank was guilty, and the historical record leaves no doubt.

    "Tricolor" well, that's an interesting word. The last time I saw it was in a Harold Covington novel. IIRC, it was what his Northwest Republic insurgency called their flag. I assume there's a connection?

    An occupant of the Oval office was a fan of the film ‘Birth of a Nation’
     
    Teddy Roosevelt?

    A similar pattern has emerged with Nazi symbols.
     
    Perspicacious and accurate; the further we get from WWII/War of Northern Aggression, the worse the losers are stigmatized and the starker the shitlib narrative.

    Woodrow Wilson was a southerner very much into the confederate heritage. He remembered the federal troops marching into his town He loved Birth of a Nation. He urged it be shown all over the country.

    Lenin liked it as well. He realized the propaganda value of a good movie.
    Perhaps that’s why Lenin’s most ardent admirers stole the Edison cameras and moved to Los Angeles
